A top-secret meeting of the world’s richest people to discuss the global financial crisis was held in New York on May 5, IrishCentral.com has learned exclusively.

The mysterious, media-blackout meeting was called by Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire-Hathaway; Bill Gates, co founder of Microsoft; and David Rockefeller Jr., chairman of Rockefeller Financial Services.

In addition to Gates, Buffett and Rockefeller, the attendees included Oprah Winfrey, George Soros, Ted Turner, and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, among others.

It was held in the President's Room at Rockefeller University In New York at 3 p.m. on that Tuesday afternoon.

How so many giant figures in American life managed to interrupt and coordinate their schedules on such short notice, and meet in total secrecy in the world’s media capital remains a mystery -- as does the ultimate outcome of the billionaires' conference.

In their letter of invitation, Gates, Buffett and Rockefeller cited the worldwide recession and the urgent need to plan for the future. They said they wanted to hear the views of a broad range of key leaders in the financial and philanthropic fields.

Each attendee was given 15 minutes to deliver a presentation on how they saw the future global economic climate, the future priorities for philanthropy, and what they felt  the elite group should do.

According to one of the attendees, Gates was the most-impressive speaker of the day, with Turner the most-outspoken and Warren Buffet the most-insistent on his agenda for change.

Winfrey was said to be in a “listening mode."

Gates was worth an estimated $57B in 2008; more recently, Buffett clocked in at an estimated $37B -- making them the richest Americans.

Winfrey was once the world’s only black billionaire, and has extensive holdings in the entertainment and publishing industries, as well as being a leading philanthropist.

Turner, founder of CNN, once donated $1B to the United Nations. Soros has a personal fortune estimated at $11B, while  Bloomberg is listed as the eighth-richest American with a net worth of $20B .

Other invitees included Eli and Edythe Broad, whose current fortune is estimated at $5.2B by Forbes Magazine; John Morgridge, former CEO of Cisco and his wife Tashia; Peter Peterson, senior chairman of the Blackstone Group; Julian Robertson, founder of Tiger Management Corp.; and  Patty Stonesifer, former CEO of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

"They were all there, the great and the good," a participant told IrishCentral.com.

Or maybe the board of governors (aka Bilderberg) directed America, Inc.'s senior management to meet and prepare for the future.
Last I heard, the news coming from Mr. Tucker said we can expect a sharp depression. You would need industry and media types to prepare for it quite rapidly.

In that light, this meeting would be expected.

what's the corporate connection between Bilderberg and Davos? if there is any distinction between the Illuminati and the New World Order, is this a part of it? Or are they all the same super-elite owners?

and when are we gonna see some Asian delegates at these pseudo-private corporate global meetings?  Chinese? Japanese? Korean?

It's what they DON'T leak out that needs to be further examined.

What are these things REALLY hiding?

Oprah is worth something like $2.7 billion.  You don't consider that to be rich?

America's Richest Givers Hold Secret Meeting in New York

 By RUSSELL GOLDMAN and EILEEN MURPHY
May 20, 2009

Under a cloak of secrecy, some of the world's wealthiest people gathered in an unprecedented meeting early this month in New York City possibly to coordinate strategies for giving their vast fortunes to charity in the midst of the financial crisis.

Invited by the world's richest men Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, a Who's Who of American wealth and influence gathered around a long table in a window-lined private room overlooking the East River on May 5.

Gates and Buffett were joined by billionaire moguls Oprah Winfrey, Ted Turner and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg along with heavyweight philanthropists George Soros, David Rockefeller and others.

Together the attendees have donated over $70 billion to charity since 1996.

A clandestine meeting of the country's rich and powerful, left off their public calendars and hidden from the press, is enough to spark the imaginations of conspiracy theorists everywhere, but attendees told ABC News.com the meeting was "100 percent about philanthropy."

First reported by blog IrishCentral.com, ABCNews.com confirmed each of the attendees' presence at the meeting held at the residence of the Rockefeller University president on the campus of the Manhattan medical school. None of the participants would discuss the meeting's details for attribution.

"It was a private gathering of friends and colleagues to share their history and excitement about their philanthropy. [It was] a group together discussing a range of things they are working on," said one attendee.

There remain as many questions about the meeting's details as there are about the logistics behind its organization. How did some of the world's most public figures coordinate their schedules, travel, and security with no one in media knowing about it?

Charities Suffer in Recession

The meeting was reminiscent of the 1907 salons of America's foremost financiers held in the study of JP Morgan to discuss how private citizens could stop the economic panic. IrishCentral reported that each of the participants was given 15 minutes to propose how to best direct their charity given the global economic climate.

Charities are suffering during the crisis, and America's top philanthropists likely met to chart a new course for global charity, said Stacy Palmer, editor-in-chief of the Chronicle of Philanthropy.

A meeting of the country's top philanthropists is "extraordinary" and "really unusual," said Palmer.

"I can't think of another time they've all been in the same room to talk about philanthropy," she said. "It's unprecedented."

Gates and Buffet have publicly committed their vast fortunes to the same philanthropic efforts and the meeting was apparently their idea.

Gates, the founder and former CEO of Microsoft, who topped the Forbes' Richest People list this year, has dedicated his foundation to eradicating infectious disease worldwide.

According to Portfolio magazine, Gates, who is worth about $59 billion, donated $3.7 billion from 2002 to 2006 and $10 billion from 2007 to 2008.

Warren Buffett, CEO of conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway, was ranked the second-richest man by Forbes this year with a net worth is estimated at $52 billion. Though his giving in the past year is not disclosed, he donated some $46.1 billion between 2002 and 2006, according to Portfolio.

In 2006, Buffet pledged $31 billion, the bulk of his fortune, to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, doubling the organization's endowment virtually overnight.

Though the charitable interests of the participants differ, they have some things in common, said Bob Ottenhoff, CEO of Guidestar, a service that tracks nonprofit organizations.

For the most part, the attendees are all self-made. Their donations come from money they made in their own lifetimes, rather than old family fortunes, and they have committed to giving away their fortunes while still alive rather than through bequests after their deaths.

One exception is David Rockefeller, scion of the Rockefeller fortune. In 2008, Rockefeller gave $137 million to charity.

Philanthropic Groups Have Global Reach

Though the philanthropic focus of each of the participants differs, many of their foundations have a global dimension.

"Each has their specialty. Gates focuses on world health, [CNN founder Ted] Turner on the environment and the UN, Soros is involved in civic engagement," said Ottenhoff.

Between 1997 and 2006 Turner has donated $1.6 billion, the bulk of which, $1 billion, went to the UN Foundation in 1997.

Soros, a fund manager worth $9 billion, gave $1.1 billion from 2002 to 2006 and $475 million from 2007 to 2008. Much of Soros giving goes to his family's Open Society Institute.

"These sorts of meetings don't happen very often. It is difficult for large philanthropic organizations to work together. The fact that these are all very engaged living donors means very interesting things can happen," Ottenhoff said.

Both Ottenhoff and Palmer agreed that it was likely the financial crisis that brought everyone together.

Charitable giving has taken a serious hit in recent months, and the power players likely discussed how to keep some nonprofits afloat.

"Nonprofits are going through a difficult time. The endowments of many foundations have dropped significantly," said Palmer. "Many people are not as able to give as much money as the used to."

They are making a statement that donors should continue to give. They are likely planning on a sending a message that philanthropy needs to continue worldwide," she said.

Few of the participants, Palmer said, gave money quietly and she anticipated that the secret meeting was the first step in a plan that would eventually be made public.

A number of other people attended the meeting including: Winfrey, worth $2.7 billion, who donated some $50 million in 2007; Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg LP and Mayor of New York City, who is worth $11.5 billion and donated $205 million from 2007 to 2008; financier Eli Broad who donated $100 million in 2008; and financier Peter Peterson, who gave away $215 million in 2008.

America's Top Philanthropists Hold Secret Meeting To Discuss Global Problems

By Maria Di Mento and Ian Wilhelm

In a quiet meeting closed to the news media and the public, Bill Gates, David Rockefeller Sr., Oprah Winfrey, and other leading philanthropists met in New York this month to discuss ways to promote efforts to solve growing social problems in America and abroad.

Together, the philanthropists in the room have committed a total of more than $72.5-billion to charitable causes since 1996, according to Chronicle of Philanthropy tallies.

The unusual event occurred May 5 at Rockefeller University and was organized by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Among the high-profile participants were Ted Turner, Warren E. Buffett, George Soros, and New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. (All of those philanthropists have appeared at one time on The Chronicle’s ranking of America’s most-generous donors.)

Several of the people at the meeting confirmed their involvement, but declined to tell The Chronicle about what was discussed or why they gathered almost in secret.

According to a person familiar with the meeting, the wealthy philanthropists gathered to trade ideas about how to raise the level of philanthropy in the world.

According to IrishCentral.com, a Web site in New York that writes about Irish Americans and which first disclosed some of the details about the gathering, each philanthropist was given 15 minutes to talk about “how they saw the future global economic climate, the future priorities for philanthropy, and what they felt the elite group should do.”

Other people who attended included Eli Broad, a real-estate investor, Julian H. Robertson, Jr., a hedge-fund manager, and Patty Stonesifer, former chief executive of the Gates foundation.

So long as we have the internet  NOTHING WILL BE A SECRET!

and they know that  and are trying their darndest to  shut it down.

What a surprise, let the hit pieces begin.

"World's Richest" Meet in Secret, Plot New World Order or Something

Get out your tinfoil! ABC today reports a heretofore secret meeting of "America's Richest Givers", including Mayor Bloomberg, Oprah, David Rockefeller, George Soros, Ted Turner, and other illuminati, were invited by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates to a "window-lined private room" -- as opposed to one lined with shackled slaves, where such meetings usually take place -- in New York on May 5. ABC says they were told the meeting was "100 percent about philanthropy." But what would you expect them to be told? In addition to being Richest Givers, these f**kers are just plain rich. They could have been plotting anything in there -- maybe even a surprise birthday party for Walt Disney's reanimated head.

Those lovable rightwing scamps at Lucianne.com have it figured out: "These billioinaires have just been informed that they will no longer be allowed to offer health benefits to employees, since EVERYONE will be forced into Socialized Medicine," says one. "'Their' plans have been known a long time," explains another. "Froogle.ORG 'Georgia guideposts' and you will see the world's 10-point epitaph as proclaimed by the world oligarchy." That doesn't explain much, but we suspect these guys have their own alternate internet made out of cardboard and dribble.

The involvement of George Soros is especially worrisome, as he has "bought and paid for the bias of MSM's [NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, PBS] and controlled the internet media through Media Matters, Moveon.org, etc. that might reveal anything detrimental to Obama's being elected as POTUS," says Romanticpoet. But with that kind of power, why would he need the rest of those guys?

Runnin' Scared has it on good authority that they just drank babies' blood and bathed naked in a jacuzzi full of Krugerrands, like they do every year.

The Rich Get … Together (Shhh, It Was a Secret)

 There are many fewer American billionaires these days, so one might think those who are left would attract more attention when they moved en masse. Yet some of America’s more prominent and successful capitalists managed to meet this month at Rockefeller University on the Upper East Side to discuss philanthropy. It took weeks before anyone noticed.

News of the meeting was reported on Monday by the site Irish Central.

The attendees at the May 5 event seemed pulled from the Forbes list of the world’s wealthiest people: Bill Gates (1), Warren E. Buffet (2), Michael R. Bloomberg (17), George Soros (29), Eli Broad (93), Oprah Winfrey (234), David Rockefeller Sr. (305), Ted Turner (376), Peter Peterson (430), Julian H. Robertson Jr. (559) and John Morgridge (647).

Based on February estimates by Forbes, the room had a net worth about $120 billion, or nearly as much as New York State’s annual budget.

Even as details trickled out this week, participants steadfastly refused to reveal the content of the discussion. Some cited an agreement to keep the meeting confidential. Spokesmen for Mr. Buffett, Mr. Bloomberg, Mr. Gates, Mr. Rockefeller, Mr. Soros and Ms. Winfrey and others dutifully declined comment, though some confirmed attendance.

“It was a private meeting,” said Karen Denne, a spokesman for the Broad Foundation, which runs Mr. Broad’s charitable efforts.

“Essentially it was a brainstorming session where people who are very charitable talked about charity in today’s economic climate,” said an assistant to one of the participants, who was told about the discussion but asked not to be identified because of the request for secrecy.

The participants all have reputations as philanthropists, and many have teamed up on causes in the past. Mr. Buffet, for instance, recently pledged to donate the bulk of his fortune, currently estimated at $37 billion, to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Together the members of the meeting had donated more than $72.5 billion to charitable causes since 1996, according to The Chronicle of Philanthropy.

Details about how the event came together were just as closely guarded. The person said to be the organizer, Patricia Q. Stonesifer, former chief executive of the Gates foundation and currently chairwoman of the Smithsonian Institution, did not return messages requesting comment.

The gathering started at 3 p.m. on May 5, a Tuesday, and lasted through dinner, held at Rockefeller University, at the private residence on campus of Paul Nurse, the university’s president, while he was out of town, said Joseph Bonner, a spokesman for the university.

The university became involved after the elder Mr. Rockefeller, its former longtime chairman, requested the university to provide space for the meeting, Mr. Bonner said. “Our role was just to provide a site for those people to meet,” he said.

ABC News Reports On Secret Meeting Of The Rich, Yet Ignores Bilderberg Completely

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Wednesday, May 20, 2009

ABC News today devoted a prominently featured three page story to a “secret meeting” of rich philanthropists which took place earlier this month in New York, and yet one of the biggest news corporations in America was completely silent during a far more important meeting of around 150 of the world’s powerbrokers at the Bilderberg conference last week.

At time of press, the ABC News story is the second top story on the ABCNews.com website under the headline, America’s Richest Givers’ Secret Meeting.

“Under a cloak of secrecy, some of the world’s wealthiest people gathered in an unprecedented meeting early this month in New York City possibly to coordinate strategies for giving their vast fortunes to charity in the midst of the financial crisis,” begins the report, before descending into a deluge of fawning idolatry about how people like David Rockefeller, Bill Gates and Ted Turner, who has repeatedly called for world population to be reduced by a shocking 95% as well as a one child policy instituted in the west, are committed to saving the poor from the ravages of the economic crisis with their benign acts of philanthropy.

The report states that the meeting is “enough to spark the imaginations of conspiracy theorists everywhere,” linking to a previous ABC News report that implies people who believe that powerful individuals conspire to rule the world in secret are probably mentally ill.

The most vomit inducing paragraph of the whole article arrives when ABC asks, “There remain as many questions about the meeting’s details as there are about the logistics behind its organization. How did some of the world’s most public figures coordinate their schedules, travel, and security with no one in media knowing about it?”

Well how indeed did they manage to do that I wonder? 150+ of the global elite manage to do it on a routine basis every single year without barely a whimper from the corporate media, despite the location of the Bilderberg meeting leaking in advance every time.

They manage to do it because the corporate media was castrated decades ago and is merely a PR machine for the establishment, which is why they dutifully follow orders not to report on what would otherwise be a gargantuan story of worldwide interest in the form of the secret Bilderberg Group meetings.

ABC News is owned by the Walt Disney Company, Vice Chairman of which is Roy Disney, nephew of Walt Disney himself. Roy Disney is a Bilderberg member, having attended the secretive cabal’s 1999 conference in Sintra, Portugal.

Since all Bilderberg members adhere to “Chatham House Rules,” forbidding the revelation of anything that was discussed, it’s unsurprising that ABC refused to report on the global elite’s annual confab in Greece near Athens last week, a story that dwarves this much vaunted “meeting of the rich” in terms of both the number and the influence of the numerous powerbrokers who attended.

Bilderberg 2009 coverage was left to a gaggle of alternative media citizen journalists who were harassed, stalked, detained and physically assaulted every step of the way by secret police and security goons at the behest of Bilderberg.

ABC News’ “meeting of the rich” exclusive is a pathetic attempt at convincing its declining audience that the corporate media has any interest in uncovering the secret agenda of the elite, when in reality the story is nothing more than a sophistic exercise in ass kissing and creeping adulation for people like David Rockefeller and Ted Turner, who are portrayed as philanthropic saviors of the planet, when they are in fact nothing more than globalist scum intent on destroying U.S. sovereignty and eliminating us “useless feeders” by means of population reduction programs which they have routinely advocated.

Oprah is worth something like $2.7 billion.  You don't consider that to be rich?

 ???

Last time I checked she wasn't printing her own money.  Now that it's mainstream news the bilderberg group is making moves across the world it makes sense to me they'd enlist hollywood's "richest" people to make it seem like they're running the world.  In American Idol world I doubt people will see the difference between Oprah and Queen Beatrix.

This is being billed as a "Philanthropists Summit" supposedly put together by Gates and Buffett.  Yet, Rockefeller is there and it was held at Rockefeller University. 


First item on the agenda: fixing the world

Richest philanthropists join forces to help charities struggling through recession

By Stephen Foley in New York

There are the great, and there are the good, and then there are those who are both – and in a plush Manhattan residence overlooking the East River earlier this month, America's greatest philanthropists assembled for a closed-doors meeting to discuss how best to tackle some of the world's most pressing problems, from disease to education to poverty reduction.

This first Philanthropists Summit was put together discreetly by the Microsoft founder, Bill Gates, and the investment guru Warren Buffett, the world's wealthiest and second-wealthiest men respectively. And the list of attendees reads like a page from the Forbes magazine Rich List.

The event comes at a time of great difficulty for many charities, whose rich donors have seen much of their wealth evaporate with the credit crisis and whose own endowments have suffered big losses.

Even the existence of the meeting was kept quiet and details have only been seeping out over the past few days, igniting the blogosphere with conspiracy theories. What could the likes of Oprah Winfrey, the New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the currency speculator George Soros and the media mogul Ted Turner be cooking up between them?

The meeting was held on 5 May at the private residence of the president of Rockefeller University, whose trustee, David Rockefeller, scion of the oil dynasty, helped sort out the venue. Between them, the attendees are worth more than $120bn (£76bn) and have donated more than $72bn to charity since 1996.

Mr Gates heads the world's richest and most powerful philanthropic foundation, named after himself and his wife, Melinda. In 2006, his friend and bridge partner Mr Buffett said he would hand most of his own fortune to the Gates Foundation to give away. Additional collaborations such as this were most likely on the informal agenda at the 5 May meeting, along with ways to encourage other members of the elite billionaires club to join the great global wealth giveaway.

"It wasn't secret," said Patty Stonesifer, the former chief executive of the Gates Foundation, who attended the meeting. "Bill and Warren hoped to do this occasionally. They sent out an invite and people came."

In their letter of invitation, Messrs Gates, Buffett and Rockefeller cited the worldwide recession and an urgent need to plan for the future. They said they wanted to hear the views of a broad range of major figures in the fields of finance and philanthropy.

As details of the meeting emerged on the blog Irish Central earlier this week, Mr Bloomberg – whose $16bn fortune is founded on a financial news business that bears his name – was asked about the event. He characterised it as a simple and informal gathering of friends. "All my friends are philanthropic," he said, "or they probably wouldn't be my friends".

World's Elite Make Population Control #1 Priority

World's Elite Make Population Control #1 Priority

http://www.lifesitenews.com/

Even though recent demographic study has revealed a great looming threat of demographic winter, the richest of the rich seem to believe that overpopulation is the top priority for their philanthropic endeavors. John Harlow writes today in The Times about a secret meeting of the global financial elite, convened by Microsoft mogul Bill Gates, at which attendees agreed that curbing the world's population should be their top priority.

In "Billionaire club in bid to curb overpopulation," Harlow recounts that a May 5 meeting took place in Manhattan that 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." Harlow notes that the general agreement that population control was a major priority came at Gates' instigation.

Gates' enthusiasm for population control comes as no surprise since he has himself admitted to being strongly influenced by the views of Thomas Malthus, the fear-mongering overpopulation guru of the late 18th century. He has also admitted that his father headed a local Planned Parenthood while he was growing up.

Of note, The Times reports that at the secret meeting, participants "discussed joining forces to overcome political and religious obstacles to change."

The Times paraphrased the account given by one attendee of the secret meeting who spoke anonymously, saying, "a consensus emerged that they would back a strategy in which population growth would be tackled as a potentially disastrous environmental, social and industrial threat."

"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." In answer to a question about the secrecy, the guest replied, "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."

In sharp contrast to the ideas of the billionaires, a recent film containing the views of some prominent demographers has sounded the alarm on underpopulation rather than overpopulation. Promoting the film 'Demographic Winter' at a recent event, celebrated columnist Don Feder said that the demographic problem of worldwide declining birthrates "could result in the greatest crisis humanity will confront in this century" as "all over the world, children are disappearing."

Feder noted, "In 30 years, worldwide, birth rates have fallen by more than 50%. In 1979, the average woman on this planet had 6 children. Today, the average is 2.9 children, and falling." He explained the situation noting, "demographers tell us that with a birthrate of 1.3, everything else being equal, a nation will lose half of its population every 45 years."

Now being billed as "Good Club"

Secret ‘Good Club’ holds first meeting in New York

THE OBSERVER, NEW YORK
Monday, Jun 01, 2009, Page 11

This is the Good Club, the name given to the tiny global elite of billionaire philanthropists who recently held their first and highly secretive meeting in the heart of New York City.

The names of some of the members are familiar figures: Microsoft chairman Bill Gates, stock investors George Soros, Warren Buffett, entertainer Oprah Winfrey, banker David Rockefeller and media entrepreneur Ted Turner. But there are others, too, like business giants Eli and Edythe Broad, who are equally wealthy but less well known. All told, its members are worth US$125 billion.

The meeting — called by Gates, Buffett and Rockefeller — was held in response to the global economic downturn and the numerous health and environmental crises that are plaguing the globe. It was, in some ways, a summit to save the world.

No wonder that when news of the secret meeting leaked, via the seemingly unusual source of an Irish-American Web site, it sent shock waves through the worlds of philanthropy, development aid and even diplomacy.

“It is really unprecedented. It is the first time a group of donors of this level of wealth has met like that behind closed doors in what is in essence a billionaires’ club,” said Ian Wilhelm, senior writer at the Chronicle of Philanthropy magazine.

The existence of the Good Club has struck many as a two-edged sword. On one hand, they represent a new golden age of philanthropy, harking back to the early 20th century when the likes of John D. Rockefeller, Vanderbilt and Carnegie became famous for their good works. Yet the reach and power of the Good Club are truly new. Its members control vast wealth — and with that wealth comes huge power that could reshape nations according to their will. Few doubt the good intentions of Gates and Winfrey and their kind. They have already improved the lives of millions of poor people across the developing world. But can the richest people on earth actually save the planet?

That the group should have met at all is indicative of the radical ways in which philanthropy has changed over the past two decades. The main force behind that change is Gates and his decision to donate almost all his fortune to bettering the world. Unlike the great philanthropists of former ages, Gates is young enough and active enough to take a full hands-on role in his philanthropy and craft it after his own ideas. That example has been followed by others, most notably Soros, Turner and Buffett. Indeed, this new form of philanthropy, where retired elite businessmen try to change the world, has even been dubbed “Billanthropy” after Gates. Another description is “philanthro-capitalism.”

Yet the implications of the development of philanthro-­capitalism are profound. It was fitting that the Good Club was meeting near the UN. The club members’ extreme wealth makes it as powerful as some of the nations with seats inside that august chamber.

Proponents of philanthro-­capitalism would argue that they are also more effective in doing good for ordinary people. Indeed the club’s members have given away about US$70 billion in the past 12 years. That is far beyond what many individual countries can afford to do with their own social policies and aid budgets.

“They have assets that rival the social spending budgets of many countries,” said Paul Schervish, director of Boston College’s Center on Wealth and Philanthropy.

But there is a potential downside to the growth of these “uber donors,” especially if the whims of individuals start to take precedence over the expertise of professionals.

The strange truth is that giving away billions of dollars is difficult and fraught with risk. There can be waste, mismanagement and poor investment. At the same time it can actually do harm.

“If you are putting enormous amounts of money into a community that can’t cope with it, then you can implode that community,” said Gayle Peterson, co-founder of Headwaters Group Philanthropic Services.

Some people are crying conspiracy. That idea has particular power on the Christian right of the US, which has reacted angrily to the idea that the club discussed birth control and overpopulation. Experts in the philanthropy field think that this negative image can be countered by more openness for future Good Club meetings.

“If they do hold more meetings, and every indication is that they will, I think people would want them to be more public. After all, they can make decisions that affect millions of peoples’ lives,” Wilhelm said.

That is true. If the members of the Good Club wish to wield their undoubted power, they may have to get used to the idea of doing it more openly.

The New "improved" "Gospel of Wealth" thats been at work for a hundred years

These systems effectively take money away from workers producing the products (under pay) and the buyers of the products (over pay) and concentrates the wealth into hands that work to perpetuating a system of economic slavery. [and Eugenics}

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gospel_of_Wealth

"Wealth", or what is more commonly known as "The Gospel of Wealth",[1] is an essay written by Andrew Carnegie in 1889 that described the responsibility of philanthropy by the new upper class of self-made rich. The central thesis of Carnegie's essay was the peril of allowing large sums of money to be passed into the hands of persons or organizations ill-equipped mentally or emotionally to cope with them. As a result, the wealthy entrepreneur must assume the responsibility of distributing his fortune in a way that it will be put to good use, and not wasted on frivolous expenditure. The very existence of poverty in a capitalistic society could be negated by wealthy philanthropic businessmen and women. [ Hah! they perpetuate the system of poverty]
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

America's richest out to limit third world population growth

http://www.etaiwannews.com/etn/news_content.php?id=971213&lang=eng_news&cate_img=317.jpg&cate_rss=news_Features


What will emerge from a secret meeting of American billionaires about reducing population in the Third World?

I am not a fan of conspiracy theories. I do not believe that there is a monolithic cabal plotting to take over planet earth. But plenty of energetic people are hatching grandiose schemes. And when you put a bunch of these folks in the same room behind closed doors you end up with trouble.

Of course they have the good of humanity at heart. But history shows that there exist plenty of humanity-hating humanitarians. Unfortunately, new examples are not hard to come by. The latest is a gathering reported in the London Sunday Times. Some of America's leading billionaires met for a private powwow in Manhattan on May 5 at the home of Sir Paul Nurse, a British Nobel prize biochemist and president of the private Rockefeller University. It was so hush-hush that some of their aides were told that they were attending a "security briefing".

A Gates initiative

Here is how the Sunday Times describes the meeting: "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."

The chief issue, at the suggestion of Bill Gates, was "overpopulation". The article ends this way: "Another guest said there was 'nothing as crude as a vote' but a consensus emerged that they would back a strategy in which population growth would be tackled as a potentially disastrous environmental, social and industrial threat. 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, he said.

Political & religious barriers

Indeed. So how exactly does our alternative world government intend to "overcome political and religious obstacles"? Will Bill Gates apply the ruthless monopolistic business strategies he perfected at Microsoft to reduce the population of developing countries? What pressure will the world's richest man apply to his opponents to persuade them to follow Netscape into oblivion?

Gates and the others are probably still formulating their tactics. The billionaires each had 15 minutes to present their favourite cause. These included such ideas as supervising aid spending, and setting up rural schools and water systems. Over dinner they tried to settle upon an "umbrella cause" which would include all of their interests. "Taking their cue from Gates," reports the Sunday Times, "they agreed that overpopulation was a priority." However, this could rattle "some Third World politicians" who are old-fashioned enough to think that "contraception and female education weaken traditional values".

Is it only Third World politicians who think that contraception weakens traditional values? How about the rest of us?

Isn't fertility a personal decision? As population expert Steven Mosher asks, "What happens when governments, often in response to pressure from abroad, attempt to directly regulate the fertility of their people? Both human rights and primary health care, it turns out, tend to suffer setbacks. Urging governments to interfere in the intimate decisions of couples concerning childbearing does not encourage limited government and the rule of law, but their opposite, an intrusive bureaucracy and human rights abuses. Nor does concentrating scarce health care resources on fertility reduction programs lead to improvements in the general state of health of a population."

As Mosher argues in his important book, Population Control: Real Costs, Illusory Benefits,, "For over half century, the population controllers have perpetrated a gigantic, costly and inhumane fraud upon the human race, defrauding the people of the developing world of their progeny and the people of the developed world of their pocketbooks."

Of course fat cat elites will suffer nothing from such programs, just the poor and voiceless. But never mind, it is for the good of humanity.

Oh please. "Charitable" causes, my ass. More like wealth-extraction and wealth-hiding causes.

To this I should have added that it's also about a criminal eugenics agenda.

A bunch of psychopathic rich people who think they're "God," nothing more.
