I have prepared the following article for posting with NewswithViews.com. For the convenience of my readers, I am posting it here as well. Be sure to listen to Javier Solana's audio speech which can be downloaded from his EU website. You will learn much!
JAVIER SOLANA – PART OF THE GLOBAL CONSTITUTION IN THE MAKING?
Valentine’s Day was not all hearts and flowers for some. Globalized politicking with heavy Germanic influence was more the order of the day for them. It was February 14, 2007 in New York City. The occasion was the Arthur F. Burns Fellowship dinner in New York City.[i] Javier Solana was introduced first by the German Ambassador and then by one Robert Zoellick. Solana was the keynote speaker. The Arthur F. Burns Fellowship is part of something called “IJP. It is said to promote journalism in general and Germany in particular.[ii] Now the name “Arthur F. Burns” sounds about as American as apple pie and ice cream. It is, however, a German program designed primarily for positive public relations about that country.[iii] Germany itself has pronounced goals for 2007. It currently heads the six month presidency of the European Union. Its foreign minister is a former Javier Solana deputy, Walter Steinmeier. IJP, the parent organization, is an acronym for “International Journalists Programme.”Only the spelling is English. The goals are pronouncedly Germanic. The Germanic goals this year are pronouncedly Europeanistic. The German ambassador to the USA once worked for Javier Solana, or so he said in his own speech at the February 14th function. So did his boss, German Foreign Minister Walter Steinmeier. Javier Solana is “the invisible man” to far too many Americans.” He certainly was not presumed “invisible” to the journalists at this gathering. “As you all know, Javier Solana is the face and voice of Europe,” proclaimed the Germanic ambassador making preliminary remarks before Senor Solana’s keynote speech.The audio recordings betray no contrary murmurings to this presumed common knowledge. Nor were there any complaints about Germany’s goal of making make the new (Dutch and French rejected) constitution a reality during its presidency.
Two important pillars of the German presidency were, per the opening speaker, the Ambassador, were (1) Finalize and implement the European constitution already rejected by France and Holland; and (2) good trans-Atlantic relations. Who could have anything against that, particularly considering that “dear Javier” was on board?
Well, Javier Solana was thereafter introduced by a slightly less charismatic Robert Zoellick. Then it was Solana’s turn to speak. The New Agers have a slogan of “act locally, think globally.” This night, Javier Solana’s speech was all global. Unlike past speeches, he did not concentrate this evening on European Constitutional concerns, the Alliance of Civilizations, or even the Middle East. Although all were directly or indirectly cited, this time the frame of reference was distinctly global. Pay close attention for it is many of your worst nightmares come true. Here is what Javier, speaking evidently from both heart and head told us about the coming shape of the “New World Order.” He modestly told them he could speak to them about the Common Foreign and Security Policy and/or Transatlantic relations but would not be doing that this evening. Instead, said Dr. Solana, he was electing to think much bigger – in terms of the larger global picture.
This so reminded me of a speech given 25 years ago, February, 1982, in Southfield, Michigan by another larger than life New Age figure, David Spangler. In that speech, Spangler, an open Lucifer devotee told his rapt audience that the New World Order would be a combination of NGO’s (non-governmental organizations), multinational corporations and UN agencies. Solana’s twist was equally grandiose. The shape of the New Order, per Dr. Solana, would be
· Non governmental organizations· Bringing “new players to the table”· Strengthening “regional cooperation”· ‘Transcend the inter-state paradigm’· IMF (International Monetary Fund) restructuring· UN Restructuring
Quoting Dr. Solana’s February 14th speech:
“It is not for me to advocate precise modalities of how we integrate new
players at the top table of global diplomacy. But I am certain that we must. We
should bear in mind that how China and India will behave in future depends on
how we treat them on the way up. Moreover, we need to make greater efforts with countries like Mexico, South Korea, South Africa and others. They are natural allies on the question of multilateral governance.It is striking that as
European Union we have been most successful when we have worked with other
partners. This is even true in our own backyard - the Balkans. And it is
especially so further afield: see Aceh or the Democratic Republic of Congo. We
are trying to apply that lesson to Darfur where we are working with the African
Union and engaging China and others.
"The same lesson also applies to the Middle East Peace Process. Here
the familiar Quartet is reaching out more to the Arab Quartet. It is trite but
true to say that the future global system will be a system of continents and
continent-wide regimes. Take the European Union, the African Union and ASEAN
Plus. When I travel across the Middle East I wonder whether it will remain the
big exception: rife with tensions, over-armed and under-institutionalised?
Bringing in new players to the top table. And strengthening regional
co-operation. These are necessary steps. But in themselves, they are not enough.
In today's world, we must be ready to transcend the inter-state paradigm.
"To tackle the dark side of globalisation, we must mobilise new
networks of actors, from the public, private, and NGO sectors. In some cases,
such new constellations have already been tremendously important. Take the "drop the debt campaign" and how it fed into the G-8 Gleneagles Summit.”
I wonder who Dr. Solana thinks will speak for this new form of global government, oops, “Global Governance?” Surely it would not be himself, or would it? Is 'the face and voice of Europe’ about to take on global dimensions? Time and events will surely tell! At any rate, he certainly is not an “invisible man” to German sponsored journalists: “as the German Ambassador told all gathered: “As you all know, Javier Solana is the face and voice of Europe.” And for whom and what else might he be the coming face and voice? A final quote from Javier Solana’s Valentine’s Day New York City speech to the Arthur F. Burns Fellowship dinner:
"What could we do? The nature of the problems thrown up by globalisation
mean there is no alternative to multilateral co-operation. But we need new
forms, which reflect the problems and power distribution of today’s world
ratherthan that of 1945. For us in the West, it also means making space at top
tables. At the UN Security Council of course. But also in terms of IMF votes.
And, why not, G-8 membership?"
I wonder how much interaction Javier Solana had with other ‘global constitutionalists’ before giving this speech? I wonder how much interaction they had with him, whether directly or indirectly? Many law schools and legal international law scholars are apparently in on these projects.[i] Maybe they just all smoked the same stuff or took the same sleeping remedy! 1945? Germany? I believe that’s where so many, at least of my generation came in. And we were determined never to repeat those mistakes! Irvin Baxter has set forth a prophetic interpretation of the beast whose deadly wound was healed as possibly being Germany whose divided sectors were reunified. Although many of us had a differing interpretation, he could well be right. How soon and how well we forget!
All of this has also brought to mind an event I had the opportunity to witness a few short years ago in 2001. Clients of mine who I had helped through a distressing situation involving attempted governmental confiscation of their private housing in a Detroit historical zone begged off on a mutual pizza invitation one afternoon after a court victory in their behalf earlier in the day. They said they had a community meeting to attend on the United Nations that evening. It was a “global listening project” for a Durban, South Africa forthcoming conference on “battling racism and xenophobia.” I am not, nor have I ever been for racism in any form. But I have been around long enough to know that “xenophobia” (pronounced ZENO-PHOBIA) is all too often a nice little code word for anti-clerical folks battling “religious fundamentalism.” I expressed interest and they invited me to join them there. I was the only Caucasian face present, but the good sisters in the audience appreciated my legal support and worked diligently to see that I was welcomed by all. They even suggested I might want to speak, but I told them ,”no, I think I’ll make tonight my own ‘listening project’” There was a community organizer setting up, a well dressed polite African-American man who told me he was from Chicago and was on the staff of the American Friends Service Committee. He told me NATO was not presently part of the immediate plans, but it was rumored that they soon would be.The event then opened. Obvious Saul Alinsky style community organizing tactics were both used and further described. The host, a community mental health director, introduced the Chicago based speaker. His own preliminary remarks were fascinating. He said, “we are here this evening so that when the United Nations is ready to make its move, the neighborhood is there for the UN. Conversely, when the neighborhood is ready to make its move, the UN will be there for us.”
Are the major players getting close to making just such a move – one that even reaches down into our communities?I wonder just what is next on the “crisis = opportunity” New Age, New World Order, Globalization, “global governance” plate? Many networking factions are being formed and worked on many levels. I wonder who plans to head this once national post-1945 governments are deemed unworkable. I am increasingly suspecting that “our very good friend, Javier Solana” will be a prominent part of that picture. I hope I’m wrong, but I suspect not.Oh, and one last thing as to the news makers. There were similar efforts pre World War II was Hitler-led Germany was remilitarizing its sector of Europe, attempting to use the Rhine River and the inhabitants of that valley as a “binding factor,” as Foster Bailey expressed in his 1972 Lucis Trust book, Running God’s Plan. As I remember that and the Communist era, we called the plans to cast favorable light on the pre and post-world War II schemes “propaganda.” A rose by any other name is still a rose. Propaganda by any other name is still propaganda! Isn’t it ironic again that a major player is Germany? This time the goal is bigger than the Rhine River Valley. It is clearly global.

I have been recovering from a bad cold and my secretary being on vacation – which gave my readers (and perhaps even Javier Solana) a break last week from my usual, as Carrie
Tomko expresses it, “still running off at the keyboard.” But I was given a rare opportunity to do my second radio interview with the unusually well informed Tamar Yonah of Israel National Radio. You can listen to the station live by just going to that web address. If you move quickly, you may also download Sunday, February 19th’s program which she and co-host, Malkah Fleisher, invited me to do. I was invited to talk about Javier Solana and the European Union.
If you want the download specifically, and Tamar told me it is ok to download and use it as long as Israel National Radio is given the credit, here is a site where it may be had. There is a veritable treasure load of relevant material on that website, so take the time to view and study. I certainly never expected to be given such an opportunity, to speak to a large community that stands to be impacted by the New Age Movement and European Union, but I was grateful for the opportunity.
Check it out by clicking here. They don’t keep the links up there indefinitely, so you will want to take advantage of the download. Herb Peters has it available at his site as well, http://www.fulfilledprophecy.com/. When you get to IsraelNationalRadio.com, you will find this under the listing of programs for February 19th:
The Weekend Edition: The EU, World Domination, and Tamar
vs. CondiWhat would Tamar say to Condoleeza Rice? Plus: Is the EU trying
to take over the world? Constance Cumbey speaks about the EU's attempts to take
control of "the neighborhood".
Thanks for reading. Thanks for listening, and I would appreciate your comments and feedback!

Suggestions and comments are welcome! I need the program back on my computer, but don't think I should have to wipe out everything else to reinstall. Surely Adobe must by now know of the problem and can graciously and publicly supply a fix!
« The Last Superhero Main The Lions Den »
Adobe December 05, 2006
Back in the good old days, when you paid money for a product or service, the people you bought said product of service from treated you with a certain amount of respect. After all, you were their customers and the people keeping them in business. These days, rather then being treated like valuable clients, customers are treated like thieves and pirates.
A classic case in point is when you go to a movie theatre these days and the finger of suspicion is immediately pointed towards you for being a pirate. You’re not allowed to take pictures of the screen, you are told, and if you do the police will be called and you’ll be ejected from the cinema. I remember the days when people were thought to be innocent until proven guilty, but sadly that right no longer exists.
I recently bought a copy of Photoshop for the office, but when I tried to install it on my laptop as well as my desktop (as sanctioned by the licence) it all went wrong. I was presented with an error screen saying that my copy of photoshop needed to be verified online. I followed the instructions and was told that there was an error and it needed to be verified by phone. Again I followed the instructions, but there was an error and I was told that I needed to speak to an operator.
The verification process was intended to prevent people from pirating Photoshop, but all it was doing was preventing as legitimate user from running the program. It basically locked you out of the software, pointed the finger of blame and forced you to prove that you had the right to run the product.
After filling the serial number and activation code online and on an automated phone service, I was forced to read it out to an operator. You would have hoped that this information would already have been passed to the operator but no such luck. The operator I spoke to tried to fix the problem, but had no luck. In the end he had the nerve to tell me that the problem was with my new MacBook and not the software. Now I’m sorry, but if your anti piracy software is preventing me running Photoshop on my laptop, them the problem is squarely on your shoulders.
Eventually I managed to get the software working, but it cost me a good 2 hours of my time and numerous angry phone calls.
This morning, when I tried to open up Photoshop on my desktop, exactly the same thing happened. I was essentially being told that I was a pirate and that I had to phone Adobe to prove that I wasn’t. Again I rang up, and this time complained about the shoddy customer service Adobe and Photoshop were providing. I wasn’t expecting much in the way of an apology, but I wasn’t expecting to be hung up on, which is exactly what happened. The bastards!
So I’d just like to take the opportunity to tell Adobe and other software vendors that if you start accusing your paying customers of being liars and thieves, you’ve already lost the battle and you don’t deserve our sympathy and support. Because frankly, if you treat your clients like thieves, where is the motivation not to act like one?

FOR THE RECORD: POINT OF CLARIFICATION
I just saw, to my utter dismay, a popular radio website, one that I count as a friend had a billing "Cumbey Exposes Javier Solana as AC." This was THEIR HEADLINE EDITORIAL and NOT MY PRONOUNCEMENT. Certainly, at this point, I confess to believing he could well be an EDUCATED GUESS and that there are many parallels between what he is saying and doing and prophecy. But I'm not ready to make a definitive pronouncement, nor have I written or said that he is definitely "the dude." I have meticulously tried to avoid sensationalism and stick to facts. I can handle my enemies. Lord, please deliver me from my friends!I hope I have not hurt these friends feelings, but I feel it critical that we maintain dignity and credibility at this critical juncture! Only time and events will ultimately tell.
Confused? So am I
The other concerns BIG New Age plans for the year 2012. Bear & Company has published disturbing books by Barbara Hand Clow. Physicist Brian Swimme who co-authored numerous works with excommunicated Catholic priest Matthew Fox (now an Episcopalian priest at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco) wrote the foreword for The Pleiadian Agenda. I see that Carrie Tomko has recently discussed Ms. Clow in one of her recent blogspots as well. I had frankly ignored the book because it was beyond weird; however, my secretary found another copy in a client file that a husband had brought in, disturbed at this type of religious programming for his children. We were closing that file which was a few years old. We resolved that case long ago and Ezella was cleaning out old files. The book, an exhibit, caught her eye as something also along the lines of current research. Remembering Dorothy Margraf's numerous mentionings to me of recently highlighted 2012 plans, she thought I thought take a fresh look. The book needs to be seen to be believed. It contains purported channelings from Lucifer and God (both very much from Lucifer, I'm convinced). The book referrs to God directed people as influenced by "Anunnaki/Nephilim . . . the ones who established the extensive and deeply ingrained management system . . ." Well, it seems that to get a "gilded and engraved Party invitation (to their Year 2012 takeover plans, it seems), "you still have time to challenge your inner belief systems about these great gods. Nobody with residual "God" poison gets an invitation to the Cosmic Party in 2012. To exorcise these lords, you must integrate the stellar intelligence of Gaia."
Well, needless to say, that's one party I don't care to join. Neither should you. I rather suspect that Sam Harris, Chris Hedges, George Monbiot, and Richard Dawkins are on the present guest list. They clearly have removed what they call "God-Poison" and what Chris Hedges blithely calls "Christo-fascists" from their systems. More on Chris Hedges later. His book American Fascists labels all Bible believing Christians as fascists and falsely lumps all with Gary North/Rushdoony brand of dominionism, probably in and of itself a variation of a theme on the New Age Movement, New World Order. More also on that later.
Have a nice weekend. I'm going home to bed! Have a nice weekend. I'm going home to bed! Oh, and don't forget to tune in to John Loeffler, Steel on Steel. He recorded a radio interview with me on Wednesday. Here's contact information for John Loeffler. I have worked with John off and on since 1986 and can vouch for the quality of his work. Happy listening! Here's how to do it in John's own words:
