Fidel Castro fascinated by book on Bilderberg Club




HAVANA – Fidel Castro is showcasing a theory long popular both among the far left and far right: that the shadowy Bilderberg Group has become a kind of global government, controlling not only international politics and economics, but even culture.

The 84-year-old former Cuban president published an article Wednesday that used three of the only eight pages in the Communist Party newspaper Granma to quote — largely verbatim — from a
2006 book by Lithuanian-born writer Daniel Estulin.

Estulin's work, "The Secrets of the Bilderberg Club," argues that the international group largely runs the world. It has held a secretive annual forum of prominent politicians, thinkers and
businessmen since it was founded in 1954 at the Bilderberg Hotel in
Holland.

Castro offered no comment on the excerpts other than to describe Estulin as honest and well-informed and to call his book a "fantastic story."

Estulin's book, as quoted by Castro, described "sinister cliques and the Bilderberg lobbyists" manipulating the public "to install a world government that knows no borders and is not
accountable to anyone but its own self."

The Bilderberg group's website says its members have "nearly three days of informal and off-the-record discussion about topics of current concern" once a year, but the group does nothing else.

It said the meetings were meant to encourage people to work together on major policy issues.

The prominence of the group is what alarms critics. It often includes members of the Rockefeller family, Henry Kissinger, senior U.S. and European officials and major international business and media executives.

The excerpt published by Castro suggested that the esoteric Frankfurt School of socialist academics worked with members of the Rockefeller family in the 1950s to pave the way for rock music to
"control the masses" by diverting attention from civil rights and social
injustice.

"The man charged with ensuring that the Americans liked the Beatles was Walter Lippmann himself," the excerpt asserted, referring to a political philosopher and by-then-staid newspaper
columnist who died in 1974.

"In the United States and Europe, great open-air rock concerts were used to halt the growing discontent of the population," the excerpt said.

Castro — who had an inside seat to the Cold War — has long expressed suspicions of back-room plots. He has raised questions about whether the Sept. 11 attacks were orchestrated by the U.S.
government to stoke military budgets and, more recently suggested that
Washington was behind the March sinking of a South Korean ship blamed on
North Korea.

Estulin's own website suggests that the 9/11 attacks were likely caused by small nuclear devices, and that the CIA and drug traffickers were behind the 1988 downing of a jetliner over Lockerbie, Scotland, that was blamed on Libya.

The Bilderberg conspiracy theory has been popular on both extremes of the ideological spectrum, even if they disagree on just what the group wants to do. Leftists accuse the group of promoting
capitalist domination, while some right-wing websites argue that the
Bilderberg club has imposed Barack Obama on the United States to advance
socialism.

Some of Estulin's work builds on reports by Big Jim Tucker, a researcher on the Bilderberg Group who publishes on right-wing websites.

"It's great Hollywood material ... 15 people sitting in a room sitting in a room determining the fate of mankind," said Herbert London, president of the Hudson Institute, a nonpartisan policy
think tank in New York.

"As someone who doesn't come out of the Oliver Stone school of conspiracy, I have a hard time believing it," London added.

A call to a Virginia number for the American Friends of Bilderberg rang unanswered Wednesday and the group's website lists no contact numbers.

Castro, who underwent emergency intestinal surgery in July 2006 and stepped down as president in February 2008, has suddenly begun popping
up everywhere recently, addressing Cuba's parliament on the threat of a nuclear war,
meeting with island ambassadors at the Foreign Ministry, writing a book
and even attending the dolphin show at the Havana aquarium.

Good for Trudeau and Castro. Is that why so many Canadians like to vacation in Cuba? That's something that I'm not allowed to do. My freedom to travel to Cuba has been denied. Obama indicated during the campaign that he might allow travel there but once in office it was only for Cubans living here. Now he says he may ease restrictions but only for academic, religious or cultural groups. That means you still must ask for permission and your request can be denied. This is so unfair.

Nikki, when I learned that late Prime-Minister Pierre Trudeau consolidated relations between Canada and Cuba, I was moving around alot between Australia, New Zealand, the U.S. and Mexico.

The organization I worked with was pretty political, and I always admired Fidel Castro's guts. He was willing to stand alone against the biggest danger there was, and that was the U.S. China and Russia sure weren't, because it wasn't them who bombed Japan into dust. So, I always admired Castro for holding off the U.S.

However, during the '80s, I think it was only Trudeau who spoiled Washington's fun. And I'm glad he did, because the U.S. needed Castro to overthrow a real scum--Batista! The U.S. couldn't have done it without Castro.

I'm glad he recovered from his medical crisis, and at his age, he sure could not have recovered if Monsanto had gotten their foot in the door. I hope they never will, so at least one country can be free from Monsanto and the Global-Pharma-killers!
