Many conservatives and liberals alike will be astonished by the fact-filled series of articles recently released by AFP on Sarah Palin, particularly the clear demonstration that the liberal Washington Post
and its sister publication, Newsweek
, have been for a long time promoting the political and personal fortunes of right wing maverick Sarah Palin.
To understand that Palin is not at all going rogue as she would like to suggest (and Going Rogue happens to be the title of Palin's new much-hyped memoir) it is critical to understand the nature of the Washington Post Company and those who control it.
While the Post and Newsweek invariably convey a culturally liberal, politically correct outlook, often aligned with the Democratic Party and certainly contrary to what is perceived to be the world view of Sarah Palin the bottom line agenda for both publications is the maintenance of the American political system as it exists today, dominated by a tightly knit clique of families and financial groups, international in scope, hardly at all concerned with the needs and concerns of grass-roots Americans.
So, in a sense, neither the Post
is, in the bigger picture, really liberal at all. Rather, instead, they are a combined and powerful force for the most secretive and yet most powerful interests operating on American soil.
To understand the Post-Newsweek
connection to the banking elite is to understand why even an ostensible rogue such as Sarah Palin is considered useful to the designs of the global money masters.
In fact, the publishers of the Post
have been intimately and directly linked, for almost a century, to the privately-owned Federal Reserve System, the Rothschild- dominated international-banker-controlled money monopoly that controls the American economy, a point many Americans are just now beginning to realize, thanks to the efforts of genuine mavericks such as Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) and former Rep. Jim Traficant (D-Ohio).
You see, the Post was purchased at firesale prices, facing bankruptcy, in 1933 by Wall Street manipulator Eugene Meyer who earlier made a vast fortune as a World War I-era war profiteer under the administration of Woodrow Wilson.
But more significantly Meyer was named as one of the earliest chairmen of the board of governors of the Federal Reserve System and later as head of the World Bank, along with the Fed one of the primary sources of financial manipulation (on behalf of big money interests) on the face of the planet today. In addition, through his family relationship to the grand rabbi of France and to the Levi-Strauss garment empire (like the Meyer family, one of the biggest of America's Jewish fortunes)Meyer was certainly one of the most powerful figures in America, especially after he began utilizing the Washington Post
as a foremost political force in the nation's capital.
Meyer's daughter, Katharine Meyer Graham, later emerged as a major power broker on her own and, with her son Donald Graham, became a regular attendee at the international Bilderberg meetings. Sponsored jointly by the billionaire Rockefeller family of America and their senior partners, the even wealthier Rothschilds of Europe, Bilderberg is an annual, heavily-guarded gathering of a select and secretive group of global financiers, industrialists, politicians, policy makers and others who despite their claims to the contrary work directly to shape the course of world affairs through the high-level influence in the nations of the West.
Yet, despite the Meyer-Graham family's close attention to promoting the Rothschild-Rockefeller Bilderberg agenda in the pages of the Post
, reports about Bilderberg itself never appear in Meyer-Graham publications or in any of the other major American media voices controlled by the inter-connected elite of Bilderberg.
And while the Post-Newsweek
empire is most publicly identified with the Meyer-Graham heirs, the truth is that another major figure behind the publishing giant is Nebraska-based investor Warren Buffet who while portrayed as a maverick himself has long cultivated close financial ties to other institutions (with substantial stock holdings in the Post-Newsweek holding company) that are, like Buffet himself, closely intertwined with the Rothschild empire.
The point of all of this is to demonstrate the nature of the influential corporate interests that are now promoting Sarah Palin. They hardly constitute the grass roots Americans that many might believe have fueled the interest in Palin's political future.
