WILL JAVIER SOLANA AND COMPANY'S EXPANDING 'GLOBAL GOVERNANCE' PORTFOLIO NOW INCLUDE ROBERT ZOELLICK AND THE WORLD BANK?
By Constance E. Cumbey
Live Radio: www.TheMicroEffect.com
(Saturdays, 11 a.m., Pacific Time, 2 p.m. USA Eastern Standard Time)
Newswithviews regular readers may remember my February 21st article. In it, I covered Javier Solana's Valentine's Day speech (February 14, 2007) in New York City. He was addressing the Arthur F. Burns Foundation. He was introduced by Robert F. Zoellick. Today that same Robert F. Zoellick, “a friend for many, many years” of Javier Solana1 was nominated by President George W. Bush to be head of the World Bank.2 Perhaps raising their own expected opposition so that they may just as rapidly unilaterally squelch it, the Bookings Institution, another confederate, together with Zoellick for Javier Solana's Global Governance initative, most disingenuously issued a statement that foreign countries may be unhappy at the nomination. I suspect that at least “The Face and Voice of Europe” in the form of Javier Solana is not. I also suspect that the Brookings Institution itself is not unhappy!
At the February 14th New York City event, “dear Javier” was introduced by German Ambassador to the USA, Klaus Scharioth as “The Face and Voice of Europe.”3 Five weeks later, Javier Solana would with the assistance of New York University, Stanford University and the Brookings Institution all apparently acting with the blessings of the United States State Department would launch a new global security initiative.4
Javier Solana has evidently had a cozy relationship with both Zoellick and the Brookings Institution. On January 5th, while in the USA, his busy itinerary included a meeting with
Brookings Institution representatives.5
Gingerly, like testing the water, “global constitutionalism” a/k/a “global governance” is being advanced. This is not entirely unlike George H. W. Bush (Bush the elder) mentioning the New World Order and his intentions to advance same in a speech he auspiciously delivered on September 11, 1991. Similar speeches were given other times.6 That Robert Zoellick is part of that scene is clear.
In addition to being a friend of Javier Solana for many years, Robert Zoellick has with equal vigor been a friend and proponent of a “New World Order,” more recently and politely known as “global governance.” As early as March, 1992, Robert Zoellick was speaking of his World Economic Forum inspired epiphanies of a New World Order.7
They are calling all of this by various names these days. Condoleezza Rice calls it “Transformational Diplomacy.” Fletcher Law School Associate Professor Daniel W. Drezner calls it “the New New World Order.”8
It appears that although Javier Solana may have his European migraines as reluctance to hand him everything appears among the masses, he has offsetting advantages of global elitist support.
Robert Zoellick was included in this year's “Brussels Forum.” The “partners” obviously furnishing financial support for the obviously quasi-EU governmental event included Daimler-Chrysler, Bertelsman Stiftung, The German Marshall Fund of the United States, and “The Federal Authorities of Belgium, Egmont Institute.”9
Another disturbingly interesting USA personality taking part in the Brussels Forum was the United States Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer.10
It appears that “global governance” is to put it in “New Age” parlance, “emerging.” It appears its proponents are becoming progressively emboldened. It further appears that those opposed to it had better develop thick skins and prepare to be marginalized. The planners who have long and sometimes successfully marginalized those speaking about the “one world under whomever” agenda. At the same time they have continued their inexorable push, successfully incorporating both liberal and conservative elements into their plans.
One such successful effort has been working under an “environmentalist,” “sustainable development” rubric. Its organizers on line describe the “harmonic convergences” of this particular globalist thrust:
Back on European shores, one of Solana's less subtle but also less noticed global governance machines continues apace. That is the Centre for Global Governance at the London School of Economics. They have made it clear in so many of their meetings that they are indeed working for Javier Solana. They describe their mission in online literature as:
“The 2007 Amsterdam Conference on the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change is the latest in the emerging series of European conferences on human dimensions research. This series began in 2001 with the first Berlin Conference on the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change. The 2007 Amsterdam Conference will bring about the Europeanisation of this successful conference cycle. The European conferences are mid-size annual events (much smaller than Open Meetings of IHDP or IGBP) of about 150 international participants, selected through rigorous international peer review. Each conference has a clear thematic focus that allows for intense exchange and discussion. Conference themes are selected with a view to bringing new and emerging topics to the European and global debate, thus ensuring the continuous innovative thrust of the conference series. Special conference features, including panels on teaching and targeted programmes for doctoral students, add to its innovative character.
The European Conferences on the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change are endorsed by the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change (IHDP) and the World Academy of Art and Science. The International Steering Committee ensures close integration with the overarching Earth System Science Programme and other networks, such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
"In addition, the European Conferences on the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change aim to further the integration of the European research projects in order to assist in shaping a European research area in the field of the human dimensions of global environmental change. Plenary and semi-plenary presentations of major European research programmes, as well as poster sessions, form an essential part of the conference series.
"Major European programmes and projects are being invited to financially and logistically support the European conferences. The 2007 Amsterdam Conference draws on support from the European programmes ADAM-‘Adaptation and Mitigation Strategies: Supporting European Climate Policy’; Glogov.org – ‘The Global Governance Project’; NeWater – ‘New Approaches to Adaptive Water Management under Uncertainty’; RefGov – ‘Reflexive Governance in the Public Interest’, the Harmoni-CA project and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (Global Change Committee), as well as support from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research11
“The Centre for the Study of Global Governance is a leading international institution dedicated to research, analysis and dissemination about global governance. Based at the London School of Economics, the Centre aims to increase understanding and knowledge of global issues, to encourage interaction between academics, policy makers, journalists and activists, and to propose solutions. The Centre for the Study of Global Governance (CsGG) was founded by Meghnad Desai in 1992. Since then, the Centre has grown considerably and the pioneering work of Meghnad Desai has been augmented by the work of Anthony Giddens, David Held and Mary Kaldor as well as a group of talented younger scholars. “Today it is led by co-directors Graham Wallas Professor of PoliticalAlso from their site:
Science David Held and Professor of Global Governance Mary Kaldor.12
'Mary Kaldor was also convenor of the study group on European Security Capabilities established at the request of Javier Solana, which produced the Barcelona report, 'A Human Security Doctrine for Europe.' 13At least one highly esoteric group that I have monitored since the early 1980s was very excited about Javier Solana and his relationship with the London School of Economics. That was SHARE INTERNATIONAL, an operating name for various Theosophical interests headed by Benjamin crème and more recently former Fulbright scholarship director, Wayne S. Peterson.14 A Spanish website (interestingly enough not appearing in the English) replete with Spanish language references to Maitreya the World Teacher made enthusiastic reference to Solana and his work.15
Well, I suppose that was still another interesting “coincidence.” It is truly unfortunate that such a capable man as Javier Solana is saddled with so many “The Omen” type coincidences: His present and main job being created with Section 666 of the Europa Codified documents;16 his powers being boosted with his Western European Union (a 10 nation federation at that!) “Recommendation 666”17
So many coincidences, so much “global governance,” so much “emergence” and now his “very good friend,” “Bob Zoellick,” the man who introduced him at the Arthur F. Burns Valentine's Day Soiree being named to head the World Bank. Paul Wolfowitz, the former head of the World Bank was ousted for greasing the skids for a good paying job for a girlfriend. I suspect that was not the first time such a thing had happened in history and I further suspect it will not be the last. Even though I was no fan of Mr. Wolfowitz whom I believed was globalist enough, I suspect there was a great deal of hypocrisy in his removal. Now that Dr. Solana's “very good friend for many, many years” has been appointed to fill the vacancy, somehow I feel more threatened by that relation and the hegemony that will give Dr. Solana and his EU hegemonic aspirations than I did with Dr. Wolfowitz's girlfriend. From a New Zealand article earlier in May, it looks like the EU (translate, Solana) may have played a crucial role in making the obvious deal for Zoellick's appointment.18
I hope I am wrong. I suspect I am not. I suspect we are only seeing the beginning of a runaway globalist government (oops, 'global governance') that we cannot control. Global government may have unlimited power for good, but given human nature, it has the even more likely potential for unlimited corruption and evil.
We shall see!

NEW: Link to Solana's Charlemagne Award speech!
Radio Program Saturday with Constance Cumbey and Rev. Thomas J. Euteneur (Herb Peters is ill and we have to rescheule him!) President Human Life International, 2 p.m. Eastern Time, 11 a.m. Pacific Standard time. Internet link and live chat rooms at
www.themicroeffectlive.com and/or www.TheMicroEffect.com. I (Constance Cumbey) will be hosting the program. I will be doing this program weekly, God willing, and will be posting my respective guests here.
Picture on left: Benjamin Creme Picture on Right: King Juan Carlos of Spain
and Javier Solana at Charlemagne Award Ceremony in Aachen, Germany, May 18, 2007.
“Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall have them in derision. Psalms, Chapter 2.
Its been a little while since I have written about the Alliance of Civilizations, known to our British and Canadian friends as “Alliance of Civilisations.” Readers "Rich of Medford" and Dorothy Margraf have been valiantly keeping up with the subject as well. Lately, I started wondering about its connections with older efforts that started in the 60's. A bold New Age initiative was started by New York socialite Judith Hollister in 1960, 47 years ago.2 Rolland Gammon, a gossipy New Ager active in the days I was originally researching the New Age Movement in the early 1980s fortunately shared his then 20 year recollections in his 1980 book Nirvana Now:
“In fact, the 20-year-old Temple of Understanding is such a bold New Age concept and its founder Judith Hollister is such an Aquarian enchantress that these interfaith gatherings of world religion leaders cannot fail to be peace-making and faith-heartening to the hundreds who attend and the millions who read, see and hear about them in international media. As I attended the first one in Calcutta, India in 1968 . . . missed the second one in Geneva Switzerland in 1970 . . . it was assured that I would participate in the third one in October, 1971 at Harvard University . . . All living religions today are trying to function as an integrated spiritual grid . . .”3
Back to today's Alliance of Civilizations, it has long than we have suspected been in a phase of not just planning, but indeed of “implementation.” It further seems that since these statements were made in early 2006, that the process was much further along than their public “christening” which happened in December 2006 would indicate. This is very typical of my experience of the New Agers over the years: they never brag, they never show all their cards. If they tell you they've got something, they've got all that and much more! Fortunately for us, they don't hold all the cards. That's their Achilles heel and one that frustrated their earlier efforts to advance their agenda starting in the 1960s for what they hoped would grandly culminate in a 1982 “Reappearance of the Christ.”
If anybody thinks that the 1982 worldwide half a million dollar ad campaign featuring ads reading “The Christ is now here” was done for a mere prank, I have a bridge to sell them --Brooklyn or Chappaquiddick, take your pick! Obviously there were very serious purposes behind them.
I remember experiencing cold chills in mid 1982 upon hearing Benjamin Creme publicly blame me on San Antonio, Texas “The Allen Dale Show” back in 1982 for “interfering with the Christ's Reappearance.” I have now donated those tapes to the University of Michigan for archival in their Bentley Historical Library, but I remember hearing those threats which then seemed to me very imminent of threats of ultimate evil coming to be directed my way. I heard Creme say “Constance Cumbey will pay for her interference with the Christ's reappearance.”
I quipped to my friends, I suppose I might, but I suppose I'm going to get paid, too!” Looking at an aging Benjamin Creme these days, it doesn't appear that his “messiah” or the Lucifer that Creme has publicly espoused, has been particularly effective in maintaining his own New Age claimed “eternal youth.” But then, I suppose he expects "reincarnation" will rescue that. I would rather trust in "resurrection"!
Quoting from a recent UN report that clearly showed blending of Temple of Understanding and Alliance of Civilization interests, among many others of this frighteningly large coalition:
“Ambassador Ilkin stressed that the second phase of their work would be much
more important, namely the implementation of the recommendations put forward in the report by the High-level Group.”4
It seems from those UN reports that the Temple of Understanding is now headed by what can only be described as a highly apostate Roman Catholic nun, one Joan Kirby, RSCJ.
"Joan Kirby, RCSJ stressed the need for dialogue and education and how important it was to have inter-religious understanding and cooperation between the diverse groups. She highlighted another initiative, namely the Tri-Party Forum which brings together the UN system agencies, UN Member States and the Committee of Religious NGOs at the UN to create innovative partnerships across traditional boundaries to seek together new forms of effective, just and global cooperation. She also expressed interest to cooperate with the Alliance of Civilizations.”5
Well, in my quest to understand just how far along these shameless proponents of a New World Religion, one that particularly compromised monotheistic believers were, I decided I should check out “DPI/NGO.” Their googled link had moved and I was redirected to a site found at an internet address of http://www.un.org/dpi/ngosection/index.asp. “DPI/NGO” stands for “Departmentof Public Information/Non Governmental Organizations.” I was most interested in the Temple of Understanding's role in that system. I was also interested in seeing the influence of Lucis Trust. In the 1980s, former Lucis Trust administrator Donald Keys (also a former SANE head, World Federalist head, and Club of Rome contributor as well as Planetary Citizens founder) bragged that he had “started many a trend at the United Nations.” I wondered if that influence was continuing and who was carrying on the now apparently disappeared Donald Keys legacy?
My Chicago area friend, Dorothy Margraf, is fond of reminding me that so many of the younger people are not aware of the basics of the New Age Movement that we ferreted out in the early 1980s. She is probably right and my book is getting increasingly harder to find, although NewswithViews, Human Life International, Dr. Stanley Monteith, and Southwest Radio Church, to the best of my present knowledge still have copies. I have found an excellent online article that summarizes so very much of what is important to know about the “Hidden Dangers” of the New Age “rainbow” in an article conveniently available for online download. It is by one Alan Morrison and may be found at the web address of http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/hardtruth/occult_character_un.htm.6
On line reporters I respect have written cautionary articles about Alan Morrison, but in biblical parlance, and I have not investigated claims either for or against him, “take the wheat, but leave the chaff.”7 The article as far as it concerns the UN and Lucis Trust is verifiable information.
So many things are converging that it is getting increasingly difficult to keep up as “global village/global governance” collaboraters such as Javier Solana come to the forefront. Today Javier Solana, a key figure in the putting together of the Alliance of Civilizations, received the “Karlspreis” otherwise known as “Charlemagne Award” in Aachen, Germany. Perhaps conveniently, perhaps not, he was not present at the European Union summit with Russia. His diplomatic skills were no doubt sorely missed. The media reported the summit was an acrimonious disaster. Solana's Aachen speech centered about the need for the European Union to enact that constitution giving him, Javier Solana, unprecedented “democratic deficit” powers forthwith – before Germany was done with its term. No doubt the vaccuum created by Solana's Russian absence today will add to his leverage.
I'm told that Herb Peters is a little under the weather and your prayers and support are needed. That goes for Yours Truly as well. Stay tuned! I am seeking clarification on Javier Solana's apparent fuzzing of his family ties. I am convinced that he has thrown a deliberate veil of confusion over his relationship with Salvador de Madariaga and it is more than likely not because of de Madariaga's richly documentable “invisible college” pursuits. As soon as I have this information a little more solidified, I will continue my series on the Javier Solana story.
Oh, and what's the difference between now and the early 1980s? Why do they (the New Agers, Alliance of Civilizations, New World Order proponents) think they will now succeed where in the past they failed? They, in my opinion, are not so sure they will -- they are angrily suspicious now of attempts to interfere with their initiatives, including but not limited to our internet ones. I think there is a significant difference, however, between the times. Many, many more people have had fair warning! I have long believed that God would restrain their efforts until people have been fairly warned of the "hidden dangers." Are you ready?
1There is an excellent online article summarizing many of the Bailey concepts with page references that may be found on line and available for download at http://www.serve.com/herrmann/bailey.htm. The article is aptly titled “An absolute manifestation of absolute evil.” I concur!

My letter of Objections to Homeland Security on Real ID Act
Department of Homeland Security
Fax: 1 (866) 466-5370
Dear Secretary Chertoff:
I am writing to express my serious objections to the REAL ID Act and its proposed implementation. My concerns are manifold. I have been a practicing attorney for 32 years. I have been known as an internationally published author on these issues for upwards of 24 years. I see no enhancement to security on any level with the implementation of this system, which I understand will leave proposed identification systems open to unencrypted reading. Digitization of fingerprints and other biometric identifiers will make it even easier for hackers, public officials succumbing to temptation to snoop on potential opponents for their present offices (yes, I worked in government long enough to know that this can and does happen), and others to obtain a digitized image of even retina scans and fingerprints of others for access and upload.
Even beyond the present Real ID Act, and for other proposed alternatives such as have been calmly discussed in magazines such as THE ECONOMIST in the past week, of digital and/or RFID chip implantation, “Tommy Thompson” route of chip implant via his new found business interests in Applied Digital Solutions ("Digital Angel"), my response is: not my cat, not my dog, not my child, not my elders, and definitely not ME. When I think that when I went to school we read horror stories with titles such as 1984 about the abuse and then eventual love of “Big Brother,” I shudder to see that this sorry day has come to our country.
As do millions of Americans who have not yet discarded their religious books and warnings, I too have strong religious objections to the implementation of a national identity system that sounds like a cross between the Book of Revelation and the recently updated THE OMEN movie.
I had hoped never to see the dawn of this day when I would have to write a letter like this for any more than “Left Behind” fiction type stories. However, it appears this day is here. Please do not make Americans envy their shorter-lived relatives who never lived to see this day!
As an American, as a fellow member of the United States legal system, I urge you to use your considerable influence to reverse course and give us true “Homeland Security” -- the security of knowing that our privacy and identities are safe and no longer at risk.
CONSTANCE E. CUMBEY
