Bilderberg Agenda Exposed

• Better secrecy for tax haven abusers, global taxation sure to be discussed.

By Mark Anderson

When the Bilderberg group claimed on its website around April 9 that the group’s 2016 meeting will take place in Dresden, Germany June 9-12, the “Panama Papers” had just erupted, revealing that big-name companies, politicians, and celebrities have been hiding funds outside the United States to avoid taxes. But some wondered if that headline-grabbing “paper caper” was just a handy issue to exploit in a “psy-op” to justify a Bilderberg-blessed world tax system.

Such a development would vindicate late AMERICAN FREE PRESS Bilderberg hound Jim Tucker’s frequent references to the long-sought Bilderberg goal of global taxation for various reasons, including to transfer money from wealthier nations to poorer ones to underwrite the latter’s ability to pay their debts to the world banking consortium.

It’s worth noting that the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists credited with breaking the provocative “Panama Papers” story is a project of the Center for Public Integrity (CPI), whose 40 or so top financiers include George Soros’s Open Society Foundations, the Rockefeller Family Fund, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Carnegie Corporation of New York. The CPI’s claim of a “strict firewall” between editorial content and these plutocratic interests, with history as their guide, just won’t wash. Rockefeller and Carnegie interests are Bilderberg mainstays.

UK Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne—that country’s treasury chief—a faithful Bilderberg fixture, has been outlining a plan in which the UK leads European calls for the Group of Twenty (G20) to tackle tax evasion. Osborne had plenty to say about this April 14 in the House of Commons.

“Today, we deal another hammer blow against those who hide their illegal tax evasion in the dark corners of the financial system,” he declared, adding: “Britain will work with our major European partners to find out who really runs the secretive shell companies and trusts that have been used as conduits for evading tax, laundering money, and benefitting from corruption.”

He noted that Britain is helping to pursue an “automatic tax-data exchange” while encouraging the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to devise new rules to tax multinational companies. He then remarked, “No single country can tackle international tax evasion alone.”

The G20, a forum of politicians and central bankers that affects two-thirds of the world population and 80% of world trade, is pushing the global taxation mantra. The G20 was created in 1999 by German Finance Minister Hans Eichel —in collaboration with former U.S. Treasury Secretaries Larry Summers and Timothy Geithner (both of whom have Bilderberg and Trilateral Commission pedigrees, with Summers having served on Bilderberg’s Steering Committee). That also was the year that Bilderberg met in Portugal to discuss “Redesigning the International Financial Architecture.”

In a new report on battling tax evasion, delivered April 14, 2016 to the G20’s Washington meeting with the Panama Papers fresh in everyone’s mind, OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría said: “[A] number of jurisdictions have yet to properly implement the exchange of tax information on request, first agreed [to] in 2009.” He also informed the G20: “Our standards on tax transparency are robust. They need to be effectively implemented worldwide, by everyone, with no exceptions, so there’s nowhere left to hide.”

A similar deception to artificially enrage the public was made in 1913 when—in a ploy to create the private Federal Reserve System and a federal income tax—appeals were made in the plutocratic press and in Congress to pass the Federal Reserve Act and approve the income tax in order to “soak the rich,” when in fact, the super-rich slyly backed both proposals. And around that time, tax-exempt foundations were devised so the super-rich could stash their cash outside the tax-collection grid, with Rockefeller and Carnegie interests involved.

Leading up to Bilderberg 2013 in the UK, talk arose in the inner circles of power (as chronicled by AFP at the time) that large corporations weren’t paying their share of taxes for their operations inside the UK. At the time, British Prime Minister David Cameron, who openly attended Bilderberg that year, pledged to intensify efforts to close off offshore tax havens.

“The news headlines continue to be filled with rhetoric designed to enrage,” UKcolumn.org reported just before Bilderberg 2013. “Google, Amazon, Apple and Starbucks are all in the [UK’s] crosshairs for ‘evading’ tax. . . . It’s ‘outrageous.’ We should experience . . . ‘fury.’”

That independent news outlet then added: “David Cameron has plans. They’re not his plans, but he has them, and his job is to make them happen. The G8 conference in Northern Ireland which begins on June 15 [2013] is where he has to do it.”



 

And evidence is still mounting that “it” is a new global tax regime. But instead of simply requiring companies to pay an appropriate tax in the UK when they do business there, Cameron’s actions, then and now, appear geared toward laying the foundation for a worldwide taxation entity, like a global Internal Revenue Service.

The annual G8 summit—re-named the G7 since 2014, when Russia was kicked out due to its “invasion” of Crimea—cross-pollinates with the Bilderberg conference, as the two meetings share some of the same high-level attendees. Bilderberg 2013 was held just before that year’s G8. In a May 20, 2013 letter to the British dependencies, including the well-known Cayman Islands tax haven, Cameron wrote:

“As you know, I have made fighting the scourge of tax evasion and aggressive tax avoidance a priority for the G8 Summit which the UK is hosting [in 2013].  .  .  . I am looking to all the Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies to continue to work in partnership . . .”

Cameron also wrote: “There is no point in dealing with tax evasion in one country if the problem is simply displaced to another.

“So,” he continued, “I very much welcome the commitments you have made to automatic tax-information exchange, both on a bilateral and multilateral basis, which will help us to reach our goal of setting a global standard in tax transparency [emphasis added]. There is a critical mass building. Last week’s European Finance Ministers meeting showed that the European Union is getting on board.

“This goes right to the heart of the ambition of Britain’s G8 to knock down the walls of company secrecy,” Cameron added, while stressing the “need to provide for fully resourced and properly managed [centralized] registries, that are freely available to law enforcement and tax collectors, and contain full and accurate details on the true ownership and control of every company.”
