MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS AND THE LOSS OF SOVEREIGNTY

[Note: On June 14, Hassan Rouhani was elected president of Iran. In 2006, he had said "a nuclear weaponized Iran destabilizes the region," and therefore the U.S. government is hopeful his election will mean Iran will not pursue development of nuclear weapons. However, since Rouhani was once a representative of Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei, his election is probably an attempt to lure the West and Israel into a false sense of security.
Another newly-elected leader, Nawaz Sharif, Pakistan's new prime minister, announced early in June that his country would no longer allow U.S. drone strikes on their land. The Obama administration, not wanting to be told what not to do, launched a drone strike on northwest Pakistan late on June 7. Pakistan complained these strikes are a violation of Pakistan's sovereignty. Apparently, Sharif doesn't realize undermining national sovereignty is a key component in the Power Elite's (PE's) plan to bring about a World Socialist Government.
Several days ago, the U.S. government announced that the U.S. Missions in 22 countries were being closed due to a significant Al-Qaeda threat, which we learned about because we intercepted their "chatter." What an amazing coincidence! At the very time the U.S. National Security Agency is coming under fire for data collection on Americans, the NSA intecepts this terrorist "chatter." What's the message? Americans better not complain about what the NSA is doing, or we might be successfully attacked by terrorists.
Another key component in the PE's plan is undermining morality. Relevent to this, ABC television recently began a new Sunday night show called "Mistresses" about 4 women having affairs. This would have been unheard of several decades ago. WASHINGTON POST TV critic Hank Stuever on June 2 reviewing the program said: "I kept thinking about how much I have heard their word 'truth' come up lately when people talk about television's "iffy future."
So why are people more willing today to produce and view such "trash"? It is because morality has been redefined as just being a "basically good person." In other words, if one is otherwise a generally good person, it doesn't matter anymore if they violate the Biblical admonition against fornication and adultery. They can still go to heaven, according to the new morality. In case you doubt that this is the "new morality, on May 29, an NPR (National Public Radio) spokesperson said "last week" the new Catholic Pope Francis said "good people," even atheists, will all meet in heaven. Thus, according to Pope Francis, Christ's statement that He is "the Way, the Truth, and the Life," and that "no man cometh to the Father but by me," is no longer applicable! This may be one reason THE HOLY BIBLE in 4 different places says that "only a few" will be chosen or saved!]
In 1967, Business International issued a research report stating: " ...the nation-state is becoming obsolete: tomorrow...it will in any meaningful sense be dead---and so will the corporation that remains essentially national."
Until this time, American political parties, even the business-oriented Republican Party, had been concerned about protecting American jobs. In the 1972 Republican Party platform, there was the following provision: "We deplore the practice of locating plants in foreign countries solely to take advantage of low wage rates in order to produce goods primarily for sale in the United States. We will take action to discourage such unfair and disruptive practices that result in the loss of American jobs." However, this plank in the 1976 platform was omitted! What had happened?
In GLOBAL REACH: THE POWER OF THE MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS (1974), authors Richard Barnet and Ronald Muller quote IBM French spokesperson Jacques Maisonrouge as commenting: "In the forties Wendell Willkie spoke about 'One World.' In the seventies we are inexorably pushed toward it." In 1973, David Rockefeller formed the Trilateral Commission. And the next year, Trilateralist Richard Gardner wrote in the Council on Foreign Relations' (CFR's) FOREIGN AFFAIRS (April 1974) that to build the "house of world order...an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more that the old-fashioned frontal assault." Barnet and Muller also quote Trilateralist and CFR member George Ball (former Undersecretary of State and chairman of Lehman Brothers International) as saying the nation-state "is a very old-fashioned idea and badly adapted to our present complex world."
As examples of the globalists' mindset of multinational corporate executives, Barnet and Muller relate that Dow Chemical Company chairman Carl Gerstacker indicated that he had "long dreamed of buying an island owned by no nation, and of establishing the World Headquarters of the Dow company on the truly neutral ground of such an island, beholden to no nation or society." Then the authors quote a company spokesperson for Dow's principal competitor, Union Carbide, saying: "It is not proper for an international corporation to put the welfare of any country in which it does business above that of any other."
The year after Barnet's and Muller's book was published, Saul Mendlovitz edited ON THE CREATION OF A JUST WORLD ORDER (1975), containing an article, "Toward a New World Order: Modest Methods and Drastic Visions" by CFR member Richard Falk, who wrote that "the existing order is breaking down at a very rapid rate, and the main uncertainty is whether mankind can exert a positive role in shaping a new world order or is doomed to await collapse in a passive posture. We believe a new world order will be born no later than early in the next century and that the death throes of the old and the birth pangs of the new will be a testing time for the human species."

And in October of the same year (1975), Trilateralist and CFR member Henry Kissinger delivered an address to the U.N. General Assembly, stating: "My country's history, Mr. President, tells us that it is possible to fashion unity while cherishing diversity, that common action is possible despite the variety of races, interests, and beliefs we see here in this chamber. Progress and peace and justice are attainable. So we say to all peoples and governments: Let us fashion together a new world order."
