"The Denver Summit of Eight - Global Government's Board of Directors"

By Joan M. Veon

Businesswoman and Free Lance International Journalist

For the last twenty-three years, a number of selected presidents and prime ministers representing the most powerful industrialized countries have been meeting to oversee the affairs of the world. Since their first meeting in 1973 in the White House Oval Office with President Nixon, their mission has increased from the original mission to "monitor" the world's currencies which began to "float" against one another after Nixon took the dollar off of the gold standard in August, 1971.

Today, these "Global Board of Directors" from the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Germany, Japan, France, and Italy, meet once a year to formally present to the public what they have done in private which is without the approval of any Congress or Parliament. In addition to economic issues, they have added the environment--pollution, sustainable development, climate warming, biodiversity; social concerns--aging, pension reforms, education; law--common international laws which will protect "democracy;" and national concerns--saying, our interconnectedness warrants it to ensure peace and tranquillity. Little by little and step by step, they have taken on vast powers since what they agree to do is the blueprint for the rest of the countries who are members of the United Nations. Their power appears to have no boundaries and their ideas and concepts are not guided by any one national constitution but by the United Nations Charter. Where are they taking us? Simply stated, to one-- one economic system, one trading system, one social system, one environmental philosophy which will also double for the spiritual side of life, and one set of international legal codes which will incorporate all national laws into one. In short, one world government.

Are we there? In the writer's understanding, yes. We have been officially and formally in world government since the public founding of the United Nations in 1945. It is the Constitution of the United States which the Charter of the United Nations is and has replaced and which is the objective of the meeting of the Group of Seven, which this year became the Denver Summit of the Eight. The Group of Seven are facilitated through additional global organizations which have been set up to parallel the U.N. such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the Food and Agricultural Organization, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development which transcend the national level and thereby, by their very existence, are operating above it. In fact, if one where to draw a flow chart of the international power players, and what they have already done, they would see how it directly affects what our own Congress is doing as it is the President of the United States who has "led the pack." It must be noted that although Republican and Democratic presidents have been instrumental in furthering world government through the Group of Seven, it is Bill Clinton who has been pushing with both hands and feet the globalist agenda which has 2000 for its completion.

The Denver Summit of the Eight was a pivotal meeting for a number of reasons. It was the last to be held in the 20th century in the U.S.; it was President Clinton who invited Russia, a country which does not fit the economic strength of the other G-7 countries, to join as a full partner;, it was the first time they highlighted the "interconnectedness" and "interdependency" of all of the nations of the world by blending both international and national concerns into one; and it was the first time in which, according to Secretary of State Madeline Albright, they "focused on how we can work together every day of the year, not just here in Denver, to sustain the security of our peoples and the progress of democracy around the world."

Both President Clinton's opening speech to the people of Colorado and Madeline Albright's speech on behalf of the Foreign Ministers set the direction. President Clinton used the term "new" sixteen times, as he described "new economic strategy, new century, new thinking, new approaches, new global economy, new path, new tools," etc. and Madeline Albright used the word "our" twenty-one times and "we" fourteen times, describing the collectivism of the Eight. Furthermore, in the final Communiqué of the Summit, the first paragraph states where the world is going:

We, the participants in the Denver Summit of the Eight, as major industrialized democracies, have discussed the steps necessary, both internationally and domestically, to shape the forces of integration to ensure prosperity and peace for our citizens and the entire world as we approach the twenty-first century. We have agreed to work closely with all willing partners in fostering global partnership for peace, security, and sustainable development that includes strengthening democracy, and human rights, and helping prevent and resolve conflicts." (emphasis added)

Their Communiqué was nineteen pages long and contained eighty-nine paragraphs of direction and agreement, paralleling the length of last years Communiqué from France.

How can the Group of Seven or the Denver Summit of Eight achieve all of these things in two and a half days in which there is only a maximum of six or seven hours devoted to meetings? It is through the global governmental structure they have created. Each Head of State has their own assistant or Sherpa, as they are called, who meet with their counterparts throughout the year, setting the agenda and working out the details. In addition, all of the various appointed Cabinet level Secretaries meet with their counterparts throughout the year. For example, Robert Rubin, Secretary of the Treasury, meets with his counterparts from the other G-7 countries numerous times during the year, as does the Secretary of Transportation, Commerce, Interior, Energy, etc. In other words, our governmental process has been globalized. These officials, instead of being solely devoted to the needs of the U.S. people, have been integrated into the global process to further the interdependency of each country so we are one.

In Denver, there were a number of topics which are continuations of previous summits such as the strengthening and expansion of the United Nations, a number of its organs and agencies; globalization; financial integration, and the environment. In addition, there were a number of new areas such as aging, small and medium enterprises, fresh water, oceans, forests, children's environmental health, space station, Africa, export control regimes, drugs and transnational crime. The following will highlight key areas:

Financial Integration - Since 1980 with the passing of the Monetary Control Act, the financial barriers between the countries of the world have been torn down thus creating the ability of money to move freely around the world. Because of the Glass-Steagall Act which was put in place after the Great Depression, to erect a barrier between commercial and investment banks, the U.S. is the only country in the world which stands in the way of complete creation of electronic money--the cashless society. In order to create "financial conglomerates" which are the equivalent of multinational corporations in the banking area, which will have control of banking, stocks and bonds, and all types of insurance, and which will have better control on electronic money, the Glass-Steagall must come down and it is. The Denver Summit of the Eight has continued to further financial integration of all of our banks, and insurance companies by calling for another global clearing house, empowering the Bank for International Settlements as well as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

The Environment - There are a number of major global environmental treaties which will increase the cost of living in developed countries, facilitate the transfer of manufacturing to developing countries who will be exempt from these environmental laws, and put another level of law over the existing laws in already in place both on the national and global level. All activities of life will be subjugated to the environment.

Transnational Crime - At the G-7 plus One Summit last year, Forty Points were recommend as a way to fight crime. Madeline Albright announced that most of the forty points have been put in place which include establishing a central authority to coordinate requests for assistance, strengthening Interpol, developing an international network for extradition, sharing of forensic law enforcement expertise, the launching of joint law enforcement operations and the strengthening of border control, creating what she termed "extensive cooperation among the 8 in combating the source of international crime by promoting law enforcement cooperation."

In summary, only a life which is wholly devoted to the Lord, set apart and holy will be able to live in such a way spiritually that they will be able to handle the rules, laws, and evil of world government. Our example is Jesus and the Apostles and how they lived when Rome ruled the world.
