"Some people call me Maurice"
Maurice Strong isn't often in the news, but he's frequently behind it. So his stepping down as special UN envoy to Korea while his ties to a businessman implicated in the oil-for-food scandal are investigated provides a good opportunity for us to wonder just who this character is.
The broad strokes: The Canadian Strong is an oxymoronic billionaire socialist who serves as Special Advisor to the Secretary-General of the United Nations and as Senior Advisor to the President of the World Bank. He is also, among many other things, Chairman of Strovest Holdings, Chairman and Director of Technology Development Corp, Director of the Foundation Board of the World Economic Forum ["Davos"] and Chairman of the Earth Council. Strong's former appointments include Secretary General of the World Bank and Director of the Rockefeller Foundation. He is a leading Bilderberger, and member of the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations and Club of Rome.
Strong wasn't born to privilege, but was cultivated by David Rockefeller whom he met at 18, when he took a job as assistant pass officer in the Security Section of the United Nations. A year later Strong was an investment analyst, and at 25 he became vice-president of Dome Petroleum.
What else is Maurice Strong? An environmentalist and patron of New Age beliefs and religious syncretism. He and his wife have been developing tens of thousands of acres in Colorado as a model "international spiritual community," called the Baca, of which the Manitou Institute forms a part.
In other words, Strong is the stuff of nightmares for revanchist conspiracy theorists who hear the whirr of the UN's black helicopters: a gilded Rockefeller socialist linked to the Lucis Trust; a proponent of one world religion and government.
In 1978, a mystic informed Hanne and Maurice Strong that "the Baca would become the center for a new planetary order which would evolve from the economic collapse and environmental catastrophes that would sweep the globe in the years to come." The Strongs say they see the Baca, which they call 'The Valley Of the Refuge Of World Truths ,'" as the paradigm for the entire planet and say that the fate of the earth is at stake. Shirley MacLaine agrees - her astrologer told her to move to the Baca, and she did. She is building a New Age study center at the Baca where people can take short week-long courses on the occult! Apparently, the Kissingers, the Rockefellers, the McNamaras, the Rothschild's, and other Establishment New World Order elitists all agree as well, for they do their pilgrimage to the Baca - where politics and the occult - the New World Order and the New Age - all merge. Watch Maurice Strong and watch the Baca!
I have to say, this is a curious place for me to be. Because much of what Strong espouses, I could say I support. I'm a socialist, I'm an environmentalist, I'm ecumenical in spirit. But I think to get at the heart of the mystery of our age, we need to take off our left or right blinders, and quit gaming our parapolitics to match our politics. As Jacques Vallee has written, most UFO researchers omit the most compelling evidence because it doesn't match their presumption of extraterrestrial origin. Similarly, I think watching Strong has merit, regardless of who else is watching him.
And perhaps it's worth noting here that Strong's Baca Grande is reputedly an active site for observing both UFOs and spirtitual manifestations.
For instance, from 1996:
A fourth witness in the Baca looked up and saw an "egg-shaped" sphere that instantly shot over the mountains. The witness had the distinct impression that the object reacted to her "seeing it." One has to wonder if folks are simply witnessing real extra-mundane phenomena, or indulging their wishful thinking. I can't help but think they are seeing something unusual. There were no known reports to the sheriff's office of these possible early fall overflights of the valley.
It's very tempting to jump to conclusions concerning these "orange lights" hanging over the San Luis Valley. They are so common, I'd bet we miss a lot of them. They blend into the sky so effortlessly.
Baca Grande also appears a magnet for military attention:
Multiple witnesses observed an extremely low-flying gunmetal colored 4-engine jet power cargo plane. One witness called it "C-17" which he thought was a new NATO plane that is "replacing the C-4." The plane arrived at tree-top level from the north, made a dangerous low left-hand turn, just above the treetops on N.Crestone Creek. Plane "seemed unusually quiet fro a jet," and was between 100 and 200 feet in altitude.
Strong has said that "we may get to the point where the only way of saving the world will be for industrial civilization to collapse." Again, largely, I agree. One teeny distinction between us: Strong is one of those in a position to effect its collapse.
Here's Strong, thinking dangerous thoughts aloud at the conclusion of an interview with WEST magazine in May, 1990 entitled "The Wizard of the Baca Grande":
Each year the World Economic Forum convenes in Davos, Switzerland. Over a thousand CEOs, prime ministers, finance ministers, and leading academics gather in February to attend meetings and set the economic agendas for the year ahead. What if a small group of these word leaders were to conclude that the principle risk to the earth comes from the actions of the rich countries? And if the world is to survive, those rich countries would have to sign an agreement reducing their impact on the environment. Will they do it? Will the rich countries agree to reduce their impact on the environment? Will they agree to save the earth?
The group's conclusion is "no." The rich countries won't do it. They won't change. So, in order to save the planet, the group decides: isn't the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn't it our responsibility to bring that about?
This group of world leaders form a secret society to bring about a world collapse. It's February. They're all at Davos. These aren't terrorists - they're world leaders. They have positioned themselves in the world's commodity and stock markets. They've engineered, using their access to stock exchanges, and computers, and gold supplies, a panic. Then they prevent the markets from closing. They jam the gears. They have mercenaries who hold the rest of the world leaders at Davros as hostage. The markets can't close. The rich countries...?
The journalist adds, "and Strong makes a slight motion with his fingers as if he were flicking a cigarette butt out of the window. I sat there spellbound.... He is, in fact, co-chairman of the Council of the World Economic Forum. He sits at the fulcrum of power. He is in a position to do it."
Many who have come to read between the lines of the official fable of 9/11 stop reading once they read of PNAC and The Grand Chessboard. I used to as well. But I've been persuaded that the deep truths of 9/11 run deeper, just as the planning and facilitation of the attacks are older than Dick Cheney's regency. And Strong's words strike me as making as compelling a case for self-indictment as PNAC's "new Pearl Harbor."
Certainly the neoconservatives are important players in the drama. (Lest we forget, Strong will now be advising Paul Wolfowitz in the latter's new role as President of the World Bank). But the neocons may themselves have been played, and too blinded by their imperial overreach to know they've become useful idiots of another agenda which will mean America's ruin. An agenda which intends to reboot the world.
I've said it before, but there's something about Luciferians that bears repeating: they think they're the good guys.
