Expliquer, S'il vous plait?
Click on the images:
"Javier Solana" = 268,000 hits
"Javier Solana" -Cumbey =39,700,000
Another google search
"Javier Solana" +Cumbey =8,960
Why is he so FAR MORE minus
Cumbey, minus Margraf, minus Dennis Cuddy?
Interesting Google "new math!"
I rather suspect Javier Solana is not going fishing -- he is now "low profiling"!

I knew things were bad and growing worse. I was not prepared, however, for the most disturbing of news on a local level. Ron Seigel, a nationally respected reporter, was brutally stabbed in the back by two masked men as he was returning to his waiting taxi on Wednesday, November 24th, the evening before Thanksgiving. Ron is a Jewish man in his early 60s and one of the gentlest but most intelligent people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
From Ron Seigel's bio:
Ron Seigel, a seasoned Michigan reporter who has enjoyed national circulation for many of his important articles received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the prestigious Monteith College of Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan. His many articles have appeared in such newspapers as the Christian Science Monitor, Our Sunday Visitor, Catholic Faith and Family, The Jewish News, the Michigan Citizen, the Detroit News, the Detroit Free Press and the Detroit Legal News. Ron directed United Community Ombudsmen, an organization which assisted community residents in dealing with government institutions. "
This (the brutal stabbing) happened in Highland Park, Michigan, the Detroit municipal enclave where I once served as Executive Assistant to the Mayor. My informant was mutual friend, Gwendolyn Mingo, herself one of the finest and most valiant fighters for fairness and decency I have ever had the privilege of knowing.
Ron's spleen was punctured and had to be immediately removed. He is hospitalized at Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, Michigan.
I will supply more details as I receive them. PRAY FOR RON SEIGEL and that the Highland Park Police Department conduct a vigorous investigation to remove the perpetrators from the streets. My informants tell me that no police report has been made as yet. So far the heinous crime has had no coverage in the local press although Ron has been a frequent contributor to most local newspapers.

've been mulling over Javier Solana's words in his Stockholm/Russia interview. You can watch it for yourself by clicking here
. I've also been pondering his sudden total lack of fame at Google.com whereas at Yahoo.com he present enjoys 6,990,000 hits as of the time of this writing. At Google.com he is down to 297,000 hits -- that is until you do the search like this:
"Javier Solana" -Cumbey
At which point, the hits instead of decreasing by the 9,800 stories where my name and his are mentioned together, increase dramatically to 5,680,000. That's somewhat less than the nearly 7 million stories he enjoys on Yahoo!
I've written before about "Google's New Math" when it came to Javier Solana numerical calcuations. I have read quotations from Javier Solana interviews in the past that he knew how to be invisible when necessary. I have more than a passing suspicion that "invisibility" is now becoming an operational necessity for Javier Solana.
My suspicion is that this is now not so much "the bland leading the bland" as it is Javier Solana controlling behind the scenes as he gives his advice to his "successor" in "private."

It's hard for me as an observer to believe that either of these appointments are serious or lasting ones. Is this Europe's equivalent of Germany's pre Hitler Weimar Republic?
Both of these individuals are relatively unknown. It is safe to say that neither have extensive diplomatic nor military expertise. I will be posting more as I learn more. Javier Solana said in the interview I posted in my last post that he would be active as "advisor" to his successor. I rather suspect with this one he will be running the entire show. Games are being played here. I am not entirely sure what they are. I'll bet Tony Blair is wondering the same thing!
UPDATE: The only one more perplexed by it than me are the Brits. Of course, the only ones more perplexed by Javier Solana's 1995 NATO appointment were the Spaniards. I thought I'd seen it all. I was wrong. Here's a British press reaction:
Who the f*** is Baroness Ashton?
Posted on November 19, 2009 in Media, Politics
Well she’s the EU’s new High Representative for foreign affairs it would seem, despite never having been elected to anything in her life and with most of her experience in politics being as a health service panjandrum in Hertfordshire.
She’s also married to YouGov pollster Peter Kellner, which may mean something or nothing - probably nothing.
Tony Blair didn’t get the president’s job of course, losing out to Herman van Rompuy of Belgium. Well at least Herman didn’t invade Iraq.
But as for the good baroness….I listened to about three hours of BBC reports on the matter tonight and they didn’t seem to know who she was either.
An appointment straight out of Lewis Carrol.

Second update: Announcement of future5 power Iranian talks IN SOLANA'S PRESENCE as announced by his aide, Cristina Gallach.
Update: Activity today, per Der Spiegel. Read all about it by clicking here.
Tomorrow is a big day for the European Union. Its 27 heads of state doing business as the Council of Ministers of the European Union are to meet. Javier Solana is the Secretary General of that body as well as his other positions (Secretary General of the Western European Union; Office of the High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy CFSP), etc. They are meeting to elect a President for the EU and even more importantly the "High Representative." It is clear from reading both the newly ratified Lisbon Treaty as well as its predecessor failed Constitution that the Foreign Minister holds the major trump cards in the new new European Union government formation. You may read a side by side comparison by clicking here
. I have been following Javier Solana's career with no small degree of fascination since November 22, 1995, the date I first became aware of his growing global influence. The enabling acts giving him power were interesting too. Section 666
of the Europa official documents and Recommendation 666
in his Western European Union. Note particularly numbered paragraphs 12, 15, and 18 of the latter.
He has indicated in a recent Interfax interview
that even if he has a successor he intends to remain active in all his present endeavors. Far and away his most active endeavor has been the promotion of "global governance."
Tomorrow will be an interesting day to watch. And to give a double meaning, we should all "watch and be ready." The wise shall understand, to quote the Prophet Daniel.

H E L P W A N T E D
UPDATE: YOU MUST, HOWEVER, BE 'SUPERHUMAN'!
"Perks" include your personal EU standing army!
It seems nobody wants to be Foreign Minister of the European Union with its enhanced budget, power, and huge diplomatic and military retinues. I rather suspect Javier Solana is far too much of a European patriot to let the post go vacant or to somebody inexperienced. If you
are interested in applying for the job, read all about it by clicking here
. Otherwise, I am suspecting that with proper pay, power boosts, guarantees, executive perks, etc., etc., the present place holder MIGHT
be persuaded to take/keep the job.
Update your resume -- there just might be opportunity lurking in Brussels. Maybe Cristina Gallach might want to apply in case her boss really is serious about retiring or becoming an Acciona consultant.

he mystery of Javier Solana's lineage continues. A few years ago, famous Spanish writer and diplomat Salvador de Madariaga
was proudly proclaimed as Javier Solana's grandfather. Javier Solana was his "nieto" (Spanish for grandson). After revelations of Nieves Mathew's occultism, suddenly, Salvador de Madariaga became an "Uncle" and thereafter "Great Uncle." Nieves Hayat deMadariaga Mathew's Italian language eulogy
proclaimed she was the mother of "due figli" (two sons).
Now the relationship of Javier Solana and Salvador de Madariaga, whose foundation
Javier Solana currently heads, has been lessened to that of "Great Uncle." HOWEVER, those telling the story on his behalf have obviously done less than artful job of relating family history. Salvador de Madariaga is Javier Solana's "great uncle" because his grandfather (Rogelio de Madariaga y Castro) and Salvador de Madariaga were COUSINS??????????????????????
Solana comes from a well-known Spanish family, being the grand nephew of Spanish League of Nations disarmament chief, diplomat, writer and European integrationist Salvador de Madariaga  (Javier's grandfather, Rogelio de Madariaga y Castro and Salvador de Madariaga were cousins). His father was a chemistry professor, Luis Solana San Martín, who died when Javier was not twenty yet. His mother, Obdulia Madariaga Pérez, died in 2005. Javier is the third of five children. His older brother Luis was once imprisoned for his political activities opposing the rule of Francisco Franco and subsequently became a distinguished leader in the Spanish telecommunications industry, and was one of the first socialist members of the Trilateral Commission.
Let's see: At least where I come from an uncle is the BROTHER of a father. A GREAT UNCLE is the BROTHER of a GRANDFATHER. A cousin of a Grandfather by definition could only be A COUSIN. At least, that's how I understand it. If I'm wrong, please tell me. How does a distant cousin get transformed into a "Great Uncle"? How did the Grandpa suddenly come to be an "Uncle."
Lots of unanswered questions here. This morning Javier Solana for a few hours had only 300,000 google hits "in all languages." I have placed my screen shots of that phenomena above.
Interesting questions about a fascinating family.

WONDER WHO WILL GET THESE NOVEMBER PRESENTS?
Herb Peters and I used to have amused discussions about what we called Javier Solana's "November presents." They (significant additional grants of power) were usually 'gift wrapped' and handed to him very close to November 20th on several occasions. A small sampling is below.
- 1995 Treaty of Association with Israel (November 20th)
- 1995 NATO headship (November 30, 1995)
- 1999 Western European Union headship
I am bemused by learning that November 19th, the EU will make decisions on its two major leaders: the president and the Foreign Minister. Read the full story by clicking here. Will those presents go to Javier Solana or will another happy European be the beneficiary of their sub-continent's largesse? Time and events will tell.
Monday, November 09, 2009
My present guess is that Solana will be persuaded to stay on, but only with enormous power concessions to him. Time will tell.
EU's military and tangled foreign policy concerns will at least appear to require somebody of Solana's stature and long experience both in running NATO and the EU itself. What will happen next?

I thank blog poster "Anonymous 12:35" for calling this important breaking news to my attention.
You can read about it in full by clicking here
. The same Ehud Barak who gushed all over Javier Solana November 27 and November 28, 1995 now has been forced to cancel his planned visit to Spain. When the original Barcelona Conference was held on those two days, it was Ehud Barak who said that "at long last, Israel has joined the European club." He went on to enumerate the benefits of "belonging to the European club." He also said that they had "beaten their swords into ploughshares."
The current seven year ENP (European Neighbourhood Policy) treaty with Israel and many other countries in the "Greater European Neighbourhood" was a clarification, strengthening, and revitalization of the treaty achieved by Javier Solana when he came out of the woodwork to big time enter the world stage in November of 1995. It seems that Solana gets significant power boosts as presents just about every November. One wonders if he will be receiving them this year or if he will pass on the structures he has labored to build to a younger man such as Britain's David Miliband.
At any rate, given the news that Spain is intensely anti-Israel, it is not hard to see the potential for the upcoming six month rotating Spanish presidency of the European breaking commitments entered into earlier. The European Neighbourhood Policy contracts/treaties were up for mid term review in mid 2010. It doesn't appear, at least for the present, as though Israel has accumulated the "brownie points" to keep that European Union "kindness" flowing.
In relevant part from that which I beg you to archive and read in full, we read:
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak has canceled a November 4 and 5 visit to Spain  amid a dispute over the command of the European-led United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL). The visit was called off after reports surfaced  that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had secretly asked Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to keep Italy in command of the 13,000-strong UNIFIL force for six months longer than planned, instead of allowing Spain to take over.
Italian General Claudio Graziano is scheduled to turn the command over to a Spanish general in February 2010. The Israeli newspaper Haaretz  says Israeli officials want Graziano to stay on because they believe that replacing the UNIFIL commander now might further destabilize the already precarious security situation in southern Lebanon. The Spanish newspaper El País  adds that Italian officials want to retain the command because it would be beneficial to Graziano’s career.
In any case, considering that Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero leads what is arguably the most anti-Israel government in Europe, Netanyahu is probably justified in having some misgivings about a Spanish-led UNIFIL.
Indeed, the unabashedly pro-Arab, pro-Hamas, pro-Hezbollah, and pro-Iranian Zapatero says the Middle East will be a top priority when Spain takes over the six-month rotating presidency  of the European Union in January 2010. Spanish officials now worry that a six-month delay in taking over the UNIFIL command will deprive Zapatero of a bully pulpit he believes will help him raise his profile in the region.
What next? It's all happening so very fast.

Update: Just found picture at left on Google Earth search for "Javier Solana." Solana has been a major proponent of changing international law from recognition of sovereignty to 'humanitarian intervention.' The rub: who gets to decide what is humanitarian and what is not. According to the following Russian report the EU may not have been acting from altruistic motives in promoting its global warming thesis. According to a story appearing in yesterday's NEW YORK TIMES, Al Gore may not have been either. Gore stands to get frightfully rich -- a billionaire from his investments in technologies designed to service the fears he has generated. Read about that from another perspective by clicking here. I made the link GREEN for obviously sarcastic reasons.
ccording to reports appearing in the Indian press, the Kyoto Treaty was procured with the assistance of European Union complicity in concealing contrary evidence. The alleged motive? Making the market more profitable for European products.
Years ago, British press articles appearing with the signature of John Boyd, Secretary, charged that Javier Solana was helping to execute Jacques Santer's directions that their central organizing principle should be the dislodging of the United States as a competing global power in the 21st century struggle for scarce resources.
Reading this excerpt makes me think that they have been successfully implementing the strategy for several years now. This week Javier Solana and company were in Washington, D.C. Today he participated in an EU-USA "energy summit."
You may read the full story by clicking here
. The relevant excerpt is below.
Academician Kapitsa denounced the Kyoto Protocol as “the biggest ever scientific fraud.” The pact was lobbied by European politicians and industrialists, critics say, in order to improve the competitiveness of European products and slow down economic growth in emerging economies. “The European Union pushed through the Kyoto Protocol in order to reduce the competitive edge of the U.S. and other countries where ecological standards are less stringent than in Europe,” says ecologist Sergei Golubchikov.
Russian scientists deny that the Kyoto Protocol reflects a consensus view of the world scientific community. Academician Kapitsa complains that opponents of the man-caused global warming are routinely denied the floor at international climate forums.
“A large number of critical documents submitted at the 1995 U.N. conference in Madrid vanished without a trace,” the scientist says. “As a result, the discussion was one-sided and heavily biased, and the U.N. declared global warming to be a scientific fact.”

Czech President Vaclav Klaus, the last courageous hold-outer on the Lisbon Treaty has reluctantly signed it. You can view it by clicking here
and then watching the You-Tube video. Still being mentioned for Foreign Minister are England's David Miliband and Italy's former Prime Minister Massimo. Today, Javier Solana, who is in the USA, issued a statement welcoming a new head of his "EU Military Committee." It is hard for me to see Javier Solana giving up the massive powers of the massive machinery he has assembled. But, who knows? Personally, I suspect that Javier Solana will have another of what Herb Peters and I termed his "November presents
." The timing appears to be just about right.
No matter what happens, from now on, it's going to be happening FAST and it promises to be both intense and interesting.

UPDATE Tuesday, November 3, 2009: Dr. Stanley Monteith is my radio guest tonight on MY PERSPECTIVE internet radio.
Reprinted with Permission
Barbara Marx Hubbard’s words that the resonating core groups are blending and merging to do the 'one work' have no better evidence than the upcoming 2010 International Year for the Rapprochement of Cultures. In 2010 we are to witness many of the interlocking initiatives we’ve discussed here converge and become the legal basis for global governance. Among these core initiatives include the
With names indicative of peace how could anyone oppose these initiatives?
When I was young I worked for a family who farmed—Harold and Elaine Wells. Harold was a World War II veteran. One year he decided to take Elaine to Europe and travel the places he had been during the War. This meant that the couple would spend some time in East Germany which, then, was part of the communist bloc and divided by the Berlin Wall.
When the couple returned Elaine described to me how she disliked East Germany. They were permitted to see only what their guide allowed. While in a downtown district their guide stopped the group in front of a shop where Elaine saw the most beautiful dress. She said she had to buy it and before the guide could stop her, she had opened the shop door. What she saw was not a store, but a room filled with machinery.
These initiatives are exactly what Elaine saw—nice window dressing and machinery. The machinery, of course, is designed to combat monotheistic religion. As these initiatives blend and converge, we are certain to find the Alliance of Civilizations to be the core resonating group. The Alliance’s initial planning documents say that UN reform IS the successful implementation of the AoC initiative. The timeframe is to move from preparatory phase into activation mode in September 2009. Speaking before the 64th UN General Assembly Spanish Prime Minister Zapatero said:
- "Now we must move a step further. The Alliance of Civilisations, which structures and implements those principles and values in the United Nations, should form part, structurally, of its main organs and at all levels. The moment has come for this General Assembly to approve a Resolution to provide the Alliance of Civilisations with that structural dimension. Spain and Turkey and the Friends of the Alliance will work together so that this Resolution may be endorsed before the end of autumn this year. I am sure that it will contribute highly positively to the task that is being developed by organs such as the Human Rights Council, the Economic and Social Council and, even, the Security Council. The dialogue of civilizations must become the mother tongue of the United Nations."
Make no mistake: this is just a formalizing of what has already taken place. All relevant UN organizations have already made entry points into the Alliance of Civilizations.
This resolution will essentially crown the Alliance queen. I expect in 2010 we will see the gathering together the “collective whole”. This is what the Gnostics refer to as the “world soul” which will become “one” with the earth (the goddess, the divine Sophia) and take her seat as the true bride of Christ. I tend to see her more as Bridezilla, the bride of the antichrist.
“Through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.” – Daniel 8:25
