“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years. …It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supernational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.”—David Rockefeller (from a speech given to the Trilateral Commission in 1991)
The Alternative Engine – The Not-So-Little Engine That Wouldn’t Go Away
By Van D. Hipp Jr. Full Story
The federal government’s penchant for wasting taxpayer money is nothing new. Sadly, it’s what we’ve come to expect.

They are following all paths to self-dependence, hunkering down, preparing to stay safe in any coming storm.
