Well here are a couple of the crew that weren't at Bilderberg this year. Of course they are still hard at work on the projects,  This will hopefully show the connections of Bilderberg to foundations and quasi-governmental "councils". Also the Goldman Sach's connection and Eugenics connection with the "Nature" conservancies...

Also this will show how the rich leave their money in trusts and the heirs get "some" of the money via those trusts/foundations.

The two we are talking about are Henry Paulson ( and his "heir" son Henry Merritt Paulson III)  and Vinod (Vinnie) Aggarwal.

Also we will touch on the current Rockefeller front groups since the  "Institute of Pacific Relations (IPR)",  the "U.S. Asia Pacific Council". Also Paulsons favorite foundation "The Nature Conservancy" and "Wildlife Conservation Society"  which he given 100 million to and has pledged his 700 million dollar fortune and his son sits as a trustee.

It also shows why someone like Vinod (Vinnie) Aggarwal would be invited to Bilderberg to "consult" on strategy and his connection to Paulson's close relationship to China and connections to Kissinger (associates).

Just curious - how often do people in academia attend these meetings? I've only seen a few names, but that's it.


"Vinnie" show the type of acedemic to be invited to Bilderberg again who likes to make lots of money off his connections and is fully vetted.

First lets look at Henry Paulson:

Last year, Richard Holbrooke, Ben Bernanke, Henry Paulson, Condoleezza Rice, and Paul Wolfowitz were in attendance when the conference was held in Chaltilly, Va.


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

Henry Merritt "Hank" Paulson Jr. (born March 28, 1946) served as the 74th United States Treasury Secretary and is a member of the International Monetary Fund Board of Governors. He previously served as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Goldman Sachs. In 2008, Time magazine named Paulson as a runner-up for its Person of the Year 2008, saying, with reference to the Global Financial Crisis of 2008: "if there is a face to this financial debacle, it is now his".


Early life and family
He was born in Palm Beach, Florida, to Marianna Gallauer and Henry Merritt Paulson, a wholesale jeweler.[1] He was raised in Barrington Hills, Illinois, as a Christian Scientist.[2] Paulson attained the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America.[3][4]

A star athlete at Barrington High School, Paulson was a champion wrestler and stand-out football player, graduating in 1964. Paulson received his Bachelor of Arts in English from Dartmouth College in 1968;[5] at Dartmouth he was a member of Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma Alpha Epsilon and he was an All Ivy, All East, and honorable mention All American as an offensive lineman.

He met his wife Wendy during his senior year. The couple has two adult children, Henry Merritt Paulson III, more commonly known as Merritt Paulson, and Amanda Clark. The Paulsons became grandparents in June 2007. They maintain homes in Washington, DC, and Barrington Hills, Illinois.

In 1970 Paulson received a Master of Business Administration degree from Harvard Business School.[6]


Early career
Paulson was Staff Assistant to the Assistant Secretary of Defense at The Pentagon from 1970 to 1972.[7] He then worked for the administration of U.S. President Richard Nixon, serving as assistant to John Ehrlichman from 1972 to 1973, during the events of the Watergate scandal for which Ehrlichman was convicted, and sentenced to prison.

Goldman Sachs
He joined Goldman Sachs in 1974, working in the firm's Chicago office under James P. Gorter. He became a partner in 1982. From 1983 until 1988, Paulson led the Investment Banking group for the Midwest Region, and became managing partner of the Chicago office in 1988. From 1990 to November 1994, he was co-head of Investment Banking, then, Chief Operating Officer from December 1994 to June 1998;[8] eventually succeeding Jon Corzine (now Governor of New Jersey) as its chief executive. His compensation package, according to reports, was US $37 million in 2005, and US $16.4 million projected for 2006.[9] His net worth has been estimated at over US $700 million.[9]

Paulson has personally built close relations with China during his career. In July 2008 it was reported by The Daily Telegraph that: "Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson has intimate relations with the Chinese elite, dating from his days at Goldman Sachs when he visited the country more than 70 times."[10]

...

During this repeal of the net capital rule, SEC Chairman William H. Donaldson agreed to the establishment of a risk management office that would monitor signs of future problems. This office was eventually dismantled by Chairman Christopher Cox, after discussions with Paulson. According to the New York Times, "While other financial regulatory agencies criticized a blueprint by Treasury Secretary Mr. Paulson proposing to reduce their stature — and that of the S.E.C. — Mr. Cox did not challenge the plan, leaving it to three former Democratic and Republican commission chairmen to complain that the blueprint would neuter the agency."[11]

In late September 2008, Chairman Cox and the other Commissioners agreed to end the 2004 program of voluntary regulation.


U.S. Secretary of the Treasury

Paulson was nominated on May 30, 2006, by U.S. President George W. Bush to succeed John Snow as the Treasury Secretary.[12] On June 28, 2006, he was confirmed by the United States Senate to serve in the position.[13] Paulson was officially sworn in at a ceremony held at the Treasury Department on the morning of July 10, 2006.

Each of Paulson's three immediate predecessors as CEO of Goldman Sachs — Jon Corzine, Stephen Friedman, and Robert Rubin — left the company to serve in government: Corzine as a U.S. Senator (later Governor of New Jersey), Friedman as chairman of the National Economic Council (later chairman of the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board) under President George W. Bush, and Rubin as both chairman of the NEC and later Treasury Secretary under President Bill Clinton.[14]

...


Civic activities
Paulson has been described as an avid nature lover. [36] He has been a member of The Nature Conservancy for decades and was the organization's board chairman and co-chair of its Asia-Pacific Council.[7] In that capacity, Paulson worked with former President of the People's Republic of China Jiang Zemin to preserve the Tiger Leaping Gorge in Yunnan province.

Paulson is also on the Board of Directors of the Peregrine Fund; was the founding Chairman of the Advisory Board of the School of Economics and Management of Tsinghua University in Beijing; and, previously served as chairman of the influential trade group, the Financial Services Forum.

Notable among the members of Bush's cabinet, Paulson has said he is a strong believer in the effect of human activity on global warming and advocates immediate action to decrease this effect. [37]

During his tenure as CEO of Goldman Sachs, Paulson oversaw the corporate donation of 680,000 acres (2,800 km2) on the forested Chilean side of Tierra del Fuego, bringing criticisms from Goldman shareholder groups[38]. He further donated to conservancy causes US$100 million of assets from his wealth, and has pledged his entire fortune for the same purpose upon his death. [39] He has also been considered someone who can influence world and business leaders to think beyond the bottom line.[40]

Henry Paulson to Stay In Washington
January 20, 2009 11:27 AM ET | Luke Mullins
Surprising, I would have thought Hank Paulson would get as far away from Washington, D.C. as possible when his term ends. But it looks like the Treasury Secretary's next move will be a position at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, which is located right in the nation's capitol.

From The Washington Post:

In an interview on his last official workday at the department, Paulson said he decided on SAIS to have an office and "a place to hang my hat." He said he plans to stay for at least several months before deciding what to do next.

Paulson said he has yet to make up his mind on a long-term career option but wants to be involved in nature conservation. A former chairman of Goldman Sachs, Paulson added that he is not interested in taking a job as a chief executive of a company, nor is he seeking to make money.

You'll recall that Paulson is a birding buff. He even owns his own exotic bird-watching island off the Georgia coastline.

Formed with the support of the U.S. Department of State, the United States Asia Pacific Council comprises American corporations and citizens who have made outstanding contributions to the advancement of the U.S. relationship with Asian and Pacific nations. The Council is a vehicle through which the knowledge and experience of its members inform and enhance US engagement with the region.

Individual Council members are active in many areas of public and private service including businesses, government, education, research and journalism. They participate in the Council as private citizens who advise, promote, and facilitate the work of official and private international institutions in the Asia-Pacific. Among these institutions is the Pacific Economic Cooperation Council (PECC), whose US representation has been consolidated under the auspices of the Council. Additionally, the Council members advise and participate in the activities of official regional organizations such as the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum and the Asian Development Bank (ADB). Council members are invited from time to time to personally advise and support U.S. interests in the Asia-Pacific region through special initiatives as well as participation in delegations and advisory groups.

The Council is hosted by and administered through the East-West Center and based in the East-West Center in Washington. It draws upon the East-West Center’s extensive in-house expertise at its Honolulu headquarters as well as that of other U.S. institutions devoted to the promotion of transpacific relations.

Daniel Vasella Biography
http://www.notablebiographies.com/newsmakers2/2005-Pu-Z/Vasella-Daniel.html
Chief Executive Officer of Novartis
...
At first, success was slow to come. Novartis' sales increased only slightly in 1998 and 1999. Vasella invested in life sciences with the idea that new biotechnology would link the drug business with agricultural and nutritional products. But the life sciences market floundered. Vasella realized it and abandoned his goal. Novartis sold off its agricultural arm in 2000.

Connecting the dots.....

Novartis / Syngenta - Cyromazine Pesticide breaks down into Melamine - allowed by EPA

Novartis makes an insecticide called "cyromazine" and the metabolite of cyromazine is melamine -when the insecticide comes in contact with urea in an animal's (or humans) body it chemically transforms into melamine. You all should know this insecticide is used on cattle feed lots, dairy operations, poultry operations, etc. for controlling flys. It is put directly into the animal feed. It is used in the United States.

Syngenta makes a crop insecticide cryromazine, to control certain larvae harmful to their (genetically engineered?) crops. It is used in the United States. It is used in tomatoes, sweet corn, onions, leafy green veggies, potatoes, etc. Cyromazine targets the nervous system of the pest insects.

A concerned citizen approached the EPA about the dangers of cyromazine, because it showed kidney problems/kidney stones and crystallization in the kidneys in laboratory animals:
"I suggest that although short-term studies have been carried out on cyromazine, the long-term implications have not been addressed in this petition. Allowing increased levels of cyromazine in foods loved by children, e.g., milk, mangoes and sweet corn without long-term studies of the effects of this toxin is tantamount to negligence."

The EPA responded (back in 1999/2000):
"Based on the risk assessments discussed in the proposed rule and the findings made therein, the Agency concludes that there is a reasonable certainty that no harm will result to the U.S. population and to infants and children from aggregate exposure to residues of cyromazine. Therefore, tolerances are established..."
