Billionaire Australian mining magnate Clive Palmer accused the CIA of funding environmental extremists seeking to cripple the island nations industry, saying during a press conference that the money was being routed through conduits such as the infamous Rockefeller Foundation. And the Australians involved in the alleged plot are essentially committing treason, Palmer declared.
The CIA, environmentalist organizations such as Greenpeace, and Australian Green Party politicians all rejected the accusations. But the high-profile remarks from Palmer, a professor who owns a massive business empire worth billions and is a significant financial contributor to the center-right Liberal National Party (LNP), caused a firestorm of controversy across the nation.
The allegations were delivered after Palmer learned of a widely criticized leaked environmentalist report Stopping the Australian Coal Export Boom" outlining plans to undermine the Australian mining sector using the courts. The document, produced by the controversial group Greenpeace, laid out a scheme to funnel millions of dollars into lawsuits aimed at thwarting the coal industry in the state of Queensland.
Citing the 1970s-era Church Committee reports products of a broad U.S. congressional investigation into intelligence agencies exposing secret funding to a wide array of private organizations Palmer said the CIA was behind the green plot. And the goal in Australia, he said, is to destroy local industry.
"You only have to go back and read the Church Report in the 1970s and to read the reports to the U.S. Congress which sets up the Rockefeller Foundation as a conduit of CIA funding," Palmer explained at a press conference in Brisbane.

Australia is an “island nation.”
Under the Politurn Dictates of the Obamunist I can almost believe this.
Well, I think he’s mistaken in one thing. For some time now, the CIA has been infested by leftists. So, it’s a bit of a stretch to think they would be doing this to improve American trade. More likely they’d be doing it to help bring about the NWO.
The biggest commie lie in the world is that the CIA is “right-wing” —in fact the actual leadership is full of LEFTIES.
That is very true. In fact; I was reading an article by the loon who runs the Daily Kos and he talked about how he wanted to join the CIA at one time. He apparently filled all the papers and stuff. He said that when he went for an interview with them; he was shocked to discover that the CIA was even more leftwing than he was.
