Billionaire club in bid to curb overpopulation
Times ^ | 24 May 2009 | John Harlow

Posted on 05/18/2010 4:15:22 PM PDT by george76

Some of America's leading billionaires have met secretly to consider how their wealth could be used to slow the growth of the world's population and speed up improvements in health and education.

The philanthropists who attended a summit convened on the initiative of Bill Gates, the Microsoft co-founder, discussed joining forces to overcome political and religious obstacles to change.

Described as the Good Club by one insider it included David Rockefeller Jr, the patriarch of America's wealthiest dynasty, Warren Buffett and George Soros, the financiers, Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York, and the media moguls Ted Turner and Oprah Winfrey.

They gathered at the home of Sir Paul Nurse, a British Nobel prize biochemist and president of the private Rockefeller University, in Manhattan on May 5. The informal afternoon session was so discreet that some of the billionaires' aides were told they were at "security briefings".

Stacy Palmer, editor of the Chronicle of Philanthropy, said the summit was unprecedented. "We only learnt about it afterwards, by accident. Normally these people are happy to talk good causes, but this is different - maybe because they don't want to be seen as a global cabal,"

At a conference in Long Beach, California, last February, he had made similar points...

"This is something so nightmarish that everyone in this group agreed it needs big-brain answers," said the guest. "They need to be independent of government agencies, which are unable to head off the disaster we all see looming."

Why all the secrecy? "They wanted to speak rich to rich without worrying anything they said would end up in the newspapers, painting them as an alternative world government,"

What is it about great wealth and success that makes these guys want to meddle with other peoples’ reproductive lives? Playing God, I assume?

Well, about all I can say is that their fears were well founded.

That is in fact what they were and what they were up to.

“What is it about great wealth and success that makes these guys want to meddle with other peoples’ reproductive lives? Playing God, I assume? “

The Power Trip they get by Playing God is what drives them. That and a misplaced sense of “doing somethign for the greater good.” Remember the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

I don’t think good intentions has anything to do with it.

George Soros has done things in his life that would drive a sane man crazy with guilt and he did it without a second thought.

“Population control” has always been a passion of the WASPs who used to run this country. The Pseudoelite that replaced them sometime in the early-mid 1960s doesn’t have such an obsession, although they are mighty big on supporting abortion.

Here's what Joy Tiz of CFP had to say about Soros and his God delusion. Soros: It’s Not Easy Being God By Joy Tiz Wednesday, April 7, 2010 I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control otherwise they might get me into trouble. -George Soros Obama’s boss, George Soros discovered his own narcissism at an early age. Robert Slater, in his unauthorized biography of Soros—Soros, The Life, Times & Trading Secrets of the World’s Greatest Investor: “Yet, what is one to make of a child who believed he was God?” Slater posits that such grandiose thoughts in childhood, if they were the “fleeting dreams of a small child” might be understandable if Soros had given any indication as an adult that he had outgrown his delusions. “Yet, as an adult, he offered no sign, no dismissive gesture, no footnote signifying that he no longer clung to such wild convictions, but only the suggestion of how difficult it was for someone to believe himself a deity.” (Pg. 15). In other words, Soros figured out early on that his messiah complex wasn’t going to be well received in the real world and he should try to tone it down a bit. He’s having mixed results with that. There are those who still cling doggedly to the fabrication that Soros is some kind of “philanthropist” despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. The compassionate philanthropist has been pushing for human euthanasia for years. The august altruist has long believed we made much too big of a fuss about 9/11, an event which he found inspiring: “Hijacking fully fueled airliners and using them as suicide bombs was an audacious idea, and its execution could not have been more spectacular.” (George Soros, “The Bubble Of American Supremacy,” The Atlantic Monthly, 12/03) Poor George, like his current Jackal in Chief, has carried the burden of being a god throughout his life: “A passage in his book The Alchemy of Finance, published in 1987, distinguishes Soros from all other financiers, ever. ‘I have always harboured an exaggerated view of my self-importance,’ he wrote. ‘To put it bluntly, I fancied myself as some kind of god or an economic reformer like Keynes, or, even better, like Einstein. My sense of reality was strong enough to make me realise that these expectations were excessive, and I kept them hidden as a guilty secret. This was a source of considerable unhappiness through much of my adult life. As I made my way in the world, reality came close enough to my fantasy to allow me to admit my secret, at least to myself. Needless to say, I feel much happier as a result.’” In 2003, Soros figured out that he could force his repugnant ideas on America more efficiently by simply changing the government than by pressing the actual issues: “‘I’ve come to the conclusion,’ Soros told Fortune, ‘that one can do a lot more about the issues I care about by changing the government than by pushing the issues.’ In short, he has become the world’s angriest billionaire.” (Mark Gimein, “George Soros Is Mad As Hell,” Fortune, 10/27/03) In 2006 and 2008, Soros made substantial progress toward his goal of changing the United States government: “Though Soros and his Shadow Party failed to bring about ‘regime change’ in 2004, the vast network of interrelated Shadow Party groups would prove to be key players in the 2006 midterm elections that saw Democrats seize control of Congress. Of particular significance was Democracy Alliance, a non-tax-exempt nonprofit entity registered in the District of Columbia, which Soros had founded in 2005, and whose long-term objective was to develop a funding clearinghouse for leftist groups.” 

“In 2008, Soros’ Shadow Party was again a major force in the movement that not only expanded the Democratic Party’s congressional majorities, but also delivered the presidency to Barack Obama.” George Soros has orchestrated plenty of regime changes. Don’t be fooled by the mythology that Soros was instrumental in opposing communism in Eastern Europe. Soros places himself on whichever side is most likely to net him the greatest power. According to Slater, Soros is fascinated by chaos. “That’s how I make my money: understanding the revolutionary process in financial markets” (Slater, pg. 47). If it’s chaos Soros is looking for, he’s got the right cipher in the White House. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Pretty scarey!

WASP means white anglo-saxon protestants, and I don’t know of a history where whites, anglo-saxons, or protestants have “always” had a “Passion” for population control.

Protestants do indeed believe birth control among married couples is not a sin.

But that is hardly a passion for population control.

Nothing new about this. The Rockefellers signed on to population control way back when, and were behind the movements to legalize birth control, the pill, and abortion.

And the other names on the list are no surprise, either. All of them are left-wing billionaires who have long supported abortion, euthanasia, and population control.

David Rockefeller Jr.’s passion is collecting bugs. He has tens of thousands of dead bugs in his apartment. I think that Stephen King could find a story here. Also there is nothing to prevent these guys from giving all of their money to the US Treasury and then jumping off of a bridge in order to save humanity.

If they cared, they would oppose immigration to the US. And H-1Bs. Sterilizing brown, yellow and black women is fince for business. Preventing the importation workers, which would stop wage reductions is bad for corporate America.
