Chinese "Happy Ending" Massage Freedom

The AP reported on a national discussion in China of the legality of male orgasm at the hands of female masseusses:

Now courts, police, prosecutors, lawyers and academics are being quoted discussing oral sex and other types of sexual services facilitated by body parts excluding genitals, typically taboo topics that have captured the public's attention.
The question is whether such services can be considered prostitution if there is no intercourse.
American President Bill Clinton redefined sex as non-intercourse while in the White House.  "Happy Ending" Bill, that's fitting

Freedom to Be Spied Upon

"My understanding is that espionage means giving secret or classified information to the enemy. Since (Edward) Snowden shared information with the American people, his indictment for espionage could reveal (or confirm) that the US Government views you and me as the enemy." - Congressman Ron Paul, M.D.

Shortly after President Obama took office I sensed he wanted to parent the country.  Snowden, like other leakers, incited the wrath of a President consumed with image management.  I predicted Snowden would face a monster wave of retaliation.  That materialized and shows no signs of ending until Snowden is extradited or dead.  

Snowden worked for Booz Allen Hamilton, an affiliate of The Carlyle Group.  President Obama recently held an intimate dinner for Carlyle co-founder David Rubenstein.  Rubenstein loaned The White House his copy of The Emancipation Proclamation, which hung in Obama's Oval Office.  It would be no problem for Rubenstein to share his anger and desire for payback for Snowden denting Booz's value.  

Note that no one is angry about Carlyle pulling nearly $1.2 billion in cash out of Booz via special dividends.  As the government provides over 99% of Booz's revenue, taxpayers ensured Carlyle's billionaire co-founders got even richer.  Booz paid Carlyle its special dividends via borrowings, which causes Uncle Sam to bear increased interest costs.  

President Obama, numerous Congressmen and other government officials want payback in the worst way for Edward Snowden.  They will get their way,  The Government-Corporate Monstrosity, Eisenhower's Military Industrial Complex on trillions in federal steroids, will ensure it

The Bilderberg Paradox

A number of democratically elected leaders, who promised to run open and transparent governments, have one greater commitment than their promise to the people.  It's fulfilling their promise of secrecy to the Bilderberg Group   The UK's Mirror reported:

David Cameron has been slammed for attending a meeting of the shadowy Bilderberg Group tonight.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman claimed that he was still committed to lead the world’s most transparent government.

But the spokesman refused to say who the PM was seeing or what they would be discussing at the secret gathering of world leaders and global business chiefs.

The gathering, held here for the first time, was a private event even though Mr Cameron was invited as the Prime Minister of the host country, the spokesman insisted.

The spokesman claimed: “That doesn’t mean that he is not determined to lead the most transparent government.”
Someone tell Cameron's assistant that one failure of a theory requires its modification.
The British Prime Minister is latest poster child, but virtually every major Western chief executive or "want-to=be" offered fealty to the Bilderbergers.  Candidate Obama attended Bilderberg in Chantilly, Virginia during his heated primary campaign against Hillary Clinton in 2008. After being elected President Obama promised to beat his predecessors on openness:

My administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government.  Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing.
Despite President Obama's promise Treasury Chief Tim Geithner attended Bilderberg in 2009 and OMB Chief Peter Orszag in 2010, prior to his retirement. Recent stories of government spying on reporters and Verizon phone users call into question Obama's transparency "commitment."

2012 President candidate Mitt Romney was the virtual face of the Bilderberg Group's private capital camp.  Many Bilderbergers are worth billions, whether it be dollars, euro's or pounds.

Despite their outsized wealth they gladly accept taxpayer donations:

There is anger that taxpayers are being left to pick up the tab for the huge security operation being mounted to protect the global elite at their love-in at the Hertfordshire retreat.
Bilderbergers want more countries opened for American-branded multinational corporations to ply their goods or access critical resources, energy, human and otherwise.

Bilderbergers' business-oriented governments offer a slow motion race to the bottom on taxes and regulations, even allowing industries to self regulate.  The Obama administration's response to BP's Oil Spew and the Tennessee coal ash spill catered to massive polluters, current and potential.

Bilderbergers incite western militaries to "free" desirable countries, while the less desirable are left in debilitating quagmires.  The globe is something to be tampered with.  Bllderbergers David Petreaus (KKR) and Michael Gfoeller (The Chertoff Group) have direct experience in this regard. 

Bilderberg attendee Alex Karp's Palantir Technologies works on the integration and analysis of large quantities of data, or as Palantir likes to say, helping to solve the world's biggest problems.  According to the NewYorker, Palentir's software "helps government agencies track down terrorists, fraudsters, and other criminals, by detecting subtle patterns in torrents of information." .Palantir Technologies was co-founded by another Bilderberger Peter Thiel.  Palantir means "seeing stone" and its niche is cyber security, offense and defense.  It's likely on the case for this Bilderberg meeting. 

Absolute power corrupts absolutely.  Absolute secrecy is a form of absolute power.  If sunshine is the best disinfectant, Bilderberg is a dank, cesspool.

Update 6-11-13:  Is Palantir on the case of Edward Snowden, the Booz Allen Hamilton leaker of NSA secrets?   The NSA is as open and accountable as Bilderberg.  Absolute secrecy is a form of absolute power.  Snowden broke secrecy and must pay.  His revelations lost The Carlyle Group nearly $80 million in Booz Allen stock holdings in two days.

Update 7-9-13:  The Guardian covered Bilderberg before they covered NSA's global spyweb.

Freedom to Protect Western Oligarchs

Mail Online reported:

British taxpayers will have to foot the bill for the ‘exceptional costs’ of policing of the clandestine Bilderberg meeting to be held in Watford next week.

The annual meeting of royalty, prime ministers and business chiefs - famous for being shrouded in secrecy - is taking place in Britain for the first time since 1998.

Given the amount of – so far unnamed - prestigious people set to attend the event at the luxury Watford hotel in Hertfordshire, local police have been forced to step up security, which will be part-funded by the government.

The cloak of secrecy surrounding the meetings, which ban journalists from attending, has fueled various conspiracy theories, including that attendees are plotting world domination.
The Telegraph expects the security bill to be in the millions.  The public, despite paying a chunk of the freight, has no right to know what Bilderberg's spooks, wankers and PEU bankers are up to. 

More British papers are reporting on the event.  in year's past The Guardian was the only major to send a reporter.

At least Brits know how to throw a protest.  It'll be interesting to see how this turns out. Western oligarchs know how to protect their secrecy. It's something the average citizen cannot afford.
