MDJarv — July 05, 2009 — From the CBC documentary ‘Life and Times’ (2004).
This clip takes a look at one of the world’s leading figures behind the New World Order agenda, and someone near the very top of the global warming/global tax/one world government swindle. For the past several years, Strong has been living in China following his exposed involvement in the UN’s Oil for Food scandal.
While the documentary casts an unabashedly favorable and glowing light on Strong, making him out to be a humanitarian of sorts and someone wanting to make the world a better place through his connections in business and government, those who have done the research and have studied Mr. Strong’s background and associations understand that this simply isn’t the case. However, this clip does at least highlight the dizzying speed in which Strong rose to power, as well as his many elite associations.
Despite having little education and almost no credentials, Strong was quickly risen through the ranks of power after being vetted by globalist kingpin David Rockefeller in the mid-40s, at the United Nations headquarters in New York City, after Strong landed a job there with the help of people who had connections to the UN.
Strong played a vital role in the rise to power of former Canadian Prime Minister, Paul Martin, landing him his first real job at Canada’s Power Corporation. The same goes for James Wolfensohn, former president of the World Bank, who also later hired Strong as an adviser.

Paul Martin and Maurice Strong–two pals at play in the fields of the globe
Canada Free Press folks have their reasons for their coverage of the Paul Martin, Maurice Strong, et al connections. There are multiple stories linked to at the end of each of the following articles. Nonetheless, the information is useful, if not always the conclusions.
Saddam invested one million dollars in Paul Martin-owned Cordex
Judi McLeod Canadafreepress.com April 22, 2005
The Canadian company that Saddam Hussein invested a million dollars in belonged to the Prime Minister of Canada, canadafreepress.com has discovered. Cordex Petroleum Inc., launched with Saddam’s million by Prime Minister Paul Martin’s mentor Maurice Strong’s son Fred Strong, is listed among Martin’s assets to the Federal Ethics committee on November 4, 2003. Among Martin’s Public Declaration of Declarable Assets are: “The Canada Steamship Lines Group Inc. (Montreal, Canada) 100 percent owned”; “Canada Steamship Lines Inc. (Montreal, Canada) 100 percent owned”–Cordex Petroleums Inc. (Alberta, Canada) 4.6 percent owned by the CSL Group Inc.” Yesterday, Strong admitted that Tongsun Park, the Korean man accused by U.S. federal authorities of illegally acting as an Iraqi agent, invested in Cordex, the company he owned with his son, in 1997. In that admission, Strong describes Cordex as a Denver-based company. Cordex Petroleum Inc. is listed among Martin’s assets as an Alberta-based company. Cordex had a U.S. subsidiary. Two years after taking the Park-through-Saddam one million dollars, Cordex went out of business. …
According to the today’s New York Sun, “the next chapter in the United Nations crisis may erupt over U.N. investigator Paul Volcker’s membership on the board of one of Canada’s biggest companies, Power Corporation, since a past president of the firm, Canadian tycoon Maurice Strong, is now tied to the oil-for-food scandal.” The missing facts are: Not only are Volcker and Strong hooked with the ties that bind to Power Corporation Inc., a company under investigation in the oil-for-food scandal, Prime Minister Paul Martin was launched into the business world with Canadian Steamship Lines by Paul Desmarais’s Power Corporation Inc. and his predecessor Jean Chretien’s daughter, France is married to Paul Desmarais’ son, Andre Desmarais. On national television last night, Prime Minister Paul Martin appealed for time in a six-minute address to the Canadian public, promising an election after the final Gomery report probing the mega-million dollar Liberal Party Adscam scandal. Martin’s public address to Canadians coincided with the very day that his long-time mentor Maurice Strong was tied to the $65-billion UN oil-for-food scandal. Was Martin using the Adscam scandal as a distraction in a Maurice Strong Cordex oil-for-food scandal that would inevitably lead back to him? At press time the Prime Minister’s office had not returned CFP’s telephone call.
Chairman of Paul Martin company that accepted Saddam’s million worked for Power Corp.
Judi McLeod Canadafreepress.com April 25, 2005
The former chairman of the Prime Minister Paul Martin-owned company that accepted $1 million from Saddam Hussein, worked with Martin at the Paul Desmarais-owned Power Corporation. William Turner was chairman of Cordex Petroleums Inc., an oil and gas exploration and production company based in Alberta with an American subsidiary in Denver, Colo. Listed among Martin’s Public Declaration of Declarable Assets submitted to the Federal Ethics Committee are his 100 percent ownership of both Canada Steamship Lines and Canada Steamship Lines Group Inc., which owns 4.6 percent of Cordex Petroleums Inc. Martin’s mentor and senior aide to UN Secretary Kofi Annan admitted on Thursday that Tongsun Park, the Korean accused by U.S. federal authorities of illegally acting as an Iraqi agent, invested in Cordex, the company he owned with his son in 1997. “When former Power Corp. President Maurice Strong left to head up the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) in Ottawa, William Turner and Martin teamed up as president and vice president, respectively.” (Bill Rodgers, Sun Media, Sept. 14, 2003). Turner, a protégé of Strong’s, was one of the first NGO leaders selected for funding by Strong, and sat on the Foundation Board of the World Economic Forum. …
“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” asked Maurice Strong, the founder of the UN Environment Program, during his opening speech at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992.
During an interview conducted in 1972, Strong talked about the concept of zero growth put forward by the Club of Rome in the late 1960s which called for the control of population and economic growth. The Club of Rome is a neo-Malthusian organization with interlocking membership with the European banking elite such as the Committee of 300 and the Bilderberg Group.
THE EARTH CHARTER
What is the EARTH CHARTER?
The Earth Charter is a declaration of fundamental ethical principles for building a just, sustainable and peaceful global society in the 21st century. It seeks to inspire in all people a new sense of global interdependence and shared responsibility for the well-being of the whole human family, the greater community of life, and future generations. It is a vision of hope and a call to action.
The Earth Charter is centrally concerned with the transition to sustainable ways of living and sustainable human development. Ecological integrity is one major theme. However, the Earth Charter recognizes that the goals of ecological protection, the eradication of poverty, equitable economic development, respect for human rights, democracy, and peace are interdependent and indivisible. It provides, therefore, a new, inclusive, integrated ethical framework to guide the transition to a sustainable future.
The Earth Charter is a product of a decade-long, worldwide, cross cultural dialogue on common goals and shared values. The Earth Charter project began as a United Nations initiative, but it was carried forward and completed by a global civil society initiative. The Earth Charter was finalized and then launched as a people’s charter in 2000 by the Earth Charter Commission, an independent international entity.
The drafting of the Earth Charter involved the most inclusive and participatory process ever associated with the creation of an international declaration. This process is the primary source of its legitimacy as a guiding ethical framework. The legitimacy of the document has been further enhanced by its endorsement by over 4,500 organizations, including many governments and international organizations.
In the light of this legitimacy, an increasing number of international lawyers recognize that the Earth Charter is acquiring the status of a soft law document. Soft law documents like the Universal Declaration of Human Rights are considered to be morally, but not legally, binding on state governments that agree to endorse and adopt them, and they often form the basis for the development of hard law.
THE EARTH CHARTER:
(Excerpts from the charter)
We stand at a critical moment in Earth’s history, a time when humanity must choose its future. As the world becomes increasingly interdependent and fragile, the future at once holds great peril and great promise. To move forward we must recognize that in the midst of a magnificent diversity of cultures and life forms we are one human family and one Earth community with a common destiny. We must join together to bring forth a sustainable global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace. Towards this end, it is imperative that we, the peoples of Earth, declare our responsibility to one another, to the greater community of life, and to future generations.
I. RESPECT AND CARE FOR THE COMMUNITY OF LIFE

The entire charter can be read at:
In order to build a sustainable global community, the nations of the world must renew their commitment to the United Nations, fulfill their obligations under existing international agreements, and support the implementation of Earth Charter principles with an international legally binding instrument on environment and development.
THE EARTH COUNCIL ALLIANCE
ECA has been founded by two individuals with deep commitments to the sustainability movement. With the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, Maurice Strong originally established the Earth Council to mobilize and support a network of citizen groups, NGOs and other organizations committed to achieving the goals of sustainability. Now the Earth Council Alliance carries that commitment forward. Mr. Strong, ECA’s co-founder, serves as Chairman Emeritus.
Co-founder and Chairman Emeritus
Maurice Strong has been dedicated to environmental and humanitarian concerns for more than four decades. Mr. Strong founded the Earth Council with the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. He is now extending that effort with a new mandate to unite Earth Councils and like-minded organizations on a collaborative platform under the Earth Council Alliance. Mr. Strong was Secretary General of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, the Stockholm conference on sustainability in 1972; the first Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme; and Secretary General of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development – the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro.
Tommy E. Short
Co-founder and Chairman
Tommy E. Short is an international business man and philanthropist who has long supported sustainability projects around the world. In the past two decades, he has traveled extensively in the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia, working with local communities and organizations to identify and fund projects that support the environment, youth, and the arts. As co-founder and chairman of ECA. Mr. Short has taken further strides in identifying opportunities and communicating sustainability to numerous organizations with co-founder, Maurice Strong.
“The Earth Council Alliance seeks to accelerate world progress in acheiving sustainability goals as they are framed in The Earth Charter, Agenda 21 and the United Nations Millenium Development Goals.”
Agenda 21: United Nations program for Sustainable Development
United Nations Millenium Development Goals:
Strong prefers power extracted from democracies, and kept from unenlightened voters. Most power-crazed men would stop at calling for a one world Earth Charter to replace the U.S. Constitution, or the UN Charter.
But in an interview with his own Earth Charter Commission, Strong said “the real goal of the Earth Charter is it will in fact become like the Ten Commandments. It will become a symbol of the aspirations and commitments of people everywhere.”
Monday, December 2, 2002
Strong organized the UN first-world environmental summit in Stockholm in 1972 and has never stopped pressing for a world where UN resolutions would be enforced as law all over the Earth.
Strong, naturally, is on the board of the World Economic Forum. “What if a small group of these world leaders were to conclude the principal risk to the earth comes from the actions of the rich countries?…
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 this about?”
That’s Strong talking, but those are Blofeld’s words coming out. But this is no fictitious Bond movie villain speaking – it is the man who chaired the Rio Earth Summit and who is Kofi Annan’s senior adviser.
“This group of world leaders forms a secret society to bring about an economic collapse,” continued Strong, warming to his fantasy. “It’s February. They’re all at Davos. These aren’t terrorists.
“They’re world leaders. They have positioned themselves in the world’s commodities and stock markets. They’ve engineered, using their access to stock markets and computers and gold supplies, a panic. Then, they prevent the world’s stock markets from closing. They jam the gears. They hire mercenaries who hold the leaders at Davos as hostage. The markets can’t close…”
Strong catches himself. “I probably shouldn’t be saying things like this.”
ABOUT the World Economic Forum (held in Davos, Switzerland)
The World Economic Forum is an independent, international organization incorporated as a Swiss not-for-profit foundation. We are striving towards a world-class corporate governance system where values are as important a basis as rules. Our motto is ‘entrepreneurship in the global public interest’. We believe that economic progress without social development is not sustainable, while social development without economic progress is not feasible.
Our vision for the World Economic Forum is threefold. It aims to be: the foremost organization which builds and energizes leading global communities; the creative force shaping global, regional and industry strategies; the catalyst of choice for its communities when undertaking global initiatives to improve the state of the world.
***WHEN THE World Economic Forum meets in Davos, Switzerland GEORGE SOROS is there too.***
A USA leadership Board member for the World Economic Forum:
Rajat Kumar Gupta
Senior Partner Emeritus, McKinsey & Company, USA 1971, BSc, India Institute of Technology; 1973, MBA, Harvard School of Business. Formerly with McKinsey & Company: 1973, various positions; 1994-2003, Managing Director, worldwide; 2004-2007, Senior Partner. Since 2007, current position. Member of the Board of Trustees, University of Chicago. Member of the Board of Directors: Associates, Harvard Business School; Northwestern Memorial Corporation; Northwestern University. Member of the Advisory Board, Kellogg School of Management. Member: Foundation Board, World Economic Forum; Global Health Council. Expertise: strategic management and organization.
Rajat Kumar Gupta and Obama:
April 22 (Bloomberg) — Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s November 2006 announcement of Rajat Kumar Gupta’s election to its board brimmed with the India native’s achievements: worldwide managing director of McKinsey & Co.; special adviser to the Secretary- General of the United Nations on management reform, co-chairman of the American India Foundation charity, whose honorary chair is former President Bill Clinton.
Goldman Sachs Chairman Lloyd Blankfein said at the time: “Our shareholders will be fortunate to have his strategic and operational expertise and judgment.” Now, with his term ending next month, Gupta is leaving the board.
On March 19, without explanation, the firm announced his decision, thanking him for his service. Three days later, prosecutors said they were examining trades in Goldman Sachs shares by Raj Rajaratnam, the central figure in the largest U.S. insider-trading case ever and a onetime Gupta business partner.
Goldman spokesman Ed Canaday declined to comment on the departure of Gupta, who earned $450,000 as a firm director last year, according to a regulatory filing.
Gupta, who has served on the Goldman board’s audit, compensation and corporate-governance committees, is a native of Kolkata, a Communist-run city in Eastern India. From lower middle-class beginnings, he managed an elite education and career: Delhi’s Modern School in the 1960s, a degree from the Indian Institute of Technology in 1971, Harvard Business School in 1973, and a job at McKinsey right after graduation.
Gupta joined with Rajaratnam and two other partners, including former Goldman Sachs Asia chairman Mark Schwartz, to form Taj Capital Partners in 2006. According to an October 2006 marketing document, the fund aimed to put $2 billion primarily into South Asian investments, half of it through a hedge fund run by Rajaratnam.
White House Dinner
Gupta and his wife were among dignitaries who attended a White House state dinner in November to honor Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, White House records show. White House spokesman Ben Labolt declined to comment.
Gupta, who has been a U.S. citizen since 1984, had a relationship with another Galleon case defendant, Anil Kumar, a friend and associate from his days at McKinsey. Kumar pleaded guilty Jan. 8 to leaking inside information to Rajaratnam over five years in exchange for $1.75 million. Kumar is now cooperating with federal prosecutors.
During Gupta’s time at McKinsey, Kumar headed an operation to outsource high-level McKinsey research to India. Gupta has spent much of his time in India, partly working on deals, since he stepped down at McKinsey in 2007.
Another current board member of P&G is Rajat Kumar Gupta, a top globalist with numerous connections to various agencies involved in Population Control. For example, Rajat Gupta serves as an advisor to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Gupta also serves as an advisor to the Secretary General of the United Nations. The most important link this man has to Population Control may be the fact that in 2006 he was appointed as a Trustee to the Rockefeller Foundation, at the same time as David Rockefeller Jr.
As I showed in the Rockefeller Timeline, the Rockefeller Family has a long history of involvement in Population Control. The Rockefeller Foundation in particular has provided funding for the Factories used for China’s One Child Policy. But the most relevant operation of the Rockefeller Foundation to this report is it’s funding of the development of a Tetanus vaccine that sterilizes women. A document from 1995 lists the Rockefeller Foundation among a group of other organizations that funded the development of an anti-fertility vaccine using Tetanus and human pregnancy hormones.
A Global Agenda perpetrated by the likes of Maurice Strong, Soros, Al Gore and Obama.
Maurice Strong tied to Al Gore and Soros.
The United Nations has been “fed” an expense budget by the United States and participating countries around the world. Because the United Nations (corruption personified) is afraid that their “money well” may dry up, is promoting the fear of Global Warming to push an agenda for none other than redistributing wealth around the world.
Al Gore and Maurice Strong will make MILLIONS off the cap and trade carbon credits through the Chicago Carbon Exchange. Notice the word: Chicago? (Obama tied to this too…..)
Obama administration protecting the ‘green’ investments of its friends
The Obama administration’s attack on the Spanish study was written by two non-economist, pro-wind activists from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. This is a part of the Department of Energy and is overseen by Assistant Secretary of Energy Cathy Zoi , who previously served as the CEO of Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection. Al has a pal to protect his vast investments in renewable energy. But so does George Soros because it appears that Zoi turned to the Center for American Progress to help in the attack on the Spanish study (there is also a study from Denmark affirming the conclusions of the Spanish study). The Center for American Progress is a “think tank” “idea factory” and “hiring hall” for the Obama administration-and it was founded and primarily funded by George Soros.
What happened to the most transparent administration in history? What happened to the promise of reform?
JUST NO LONGER SILENT.
