American popular music is a manufactured product of generally very poor artistic quality, but serves the purpose of producing idols who can be used to convey subliminal messages of subversion. Edward Bernays, the father of “public relations” and nephew to Sigmund Freud, wrote: “Human beings need to have godhead symbols, and public relations counsels must help to create them.” Bernays recognized the value of his idol-making in shaping public opinion:
We have no being in the air to watch over us. We must watch over ourselves, and that is where public relations counselors can prove their effectiveness, by making the public believe that human gods are watching over us for our own benefit.
No Doubt, Jay Z, Carrie Underwood and other musical acts performed in Central Park in New York City on Saturday for the 3rd annual Global Citizen Festival, a free event organized by then Global Poverty Project, which receives the buil of its funding by major Zionist foundations.
The concept of the “Global Citizen” is an agenda with the support of the UN and its affiliated agencies, presented as a positive step forward away from the ravages of nationalism, and towards a more favorable allegiance to a single one-world government. The objective is totalitarian because it aims to replace all the world’s religions and bring everyone together under a single one-world religion, based on Freemasonry and the Kabbalah.
The Global Poverty Project disguises its sinister objectives by shrouding its projects in humanitarian principles, in order to suggest that one-world government is the only answer to humanity’s most pressing problems, global poverty being the greatest among them. However, speaking at the festival was Jim Young Kim, president of the World Bank, which is responsible for creating that staggering poverty in the first place.
An important myth that has been cultivated to disguise the sordid realities of rampant capitalism is that of “development.” It suggests that the Third World is stagnating in a more primitive stage of evolution, and in need of Western assistance to catch up with the level of prosperity of the industrialized world.
However, as demonstrated by John Perkins, in Confessions of an Economic Hitman, the Third World is being deliberately enslaved to provide cheap human and natural resources. Through coups and other covert strategies, the CIA ensures local support for the acceptance of “aid” which is supplied to finance development projects by giant American corporations like Bechtel and Haliburton. These projects generate profits only to their shareholders, while saddling the common citizens with the extraordinary debt, which is further exacerbated through IMF’s “structural adjustment” policies which impose “austerity measures” to ensure its repayment and ensuring their subservience.
The Global Poverty Project was founded by Hugh Evans and Simon Moss and aims to end extreme poverty by 2030, by increasing the number of people working for the cause. Among its most important sources of funding are the Pratt Foundation, the Joel Joffe Foundation and the Sumner Redstone Foundation.
Joel Goodman Joffe, Baron Joffe, is a South African-born Jewish lawyer and Labour peer in the British House of Lords. He was served as defence attorney of the leadership of the ANC at the 1963-4 Rivonia Trial, helping to represent Nelson Mandela. He later moved to the UK, and worked in the financial services industry, setting up Hambro Life Assurance with Sir Mark Weinberg. He was associated with Oxfam in various roles between 1982 and 2001, including being its Chair 1995–2001. He was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 1999 New Year Honours.
When Richard Pratt, the head of the Pratt Foundation, which has a history of extensive charitable work in Israel, died in 2009, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said of him, "Israel and the Jewish people have lost a great friend and supporter." The Pratt Foundation is an Australian philanthropic organisation based in Melbourne and established in 1978 by Jeanne and Richard Pratt. Richard J. Pratt (born Ryszard Przecicki). Pratt was born in Poland to Polish Jewish parents in 1934. His family immigrated to Australia in 1938 and settled in Shepparton, Victoria, changing their surname from Przecicki to Pratt. In the year before his death Pratt was Australia’s fourth-richest person, with a personal fortune valued at A$5.48 billion.
Pratt was chairman of the privately owned company Visy Industries, and a leading figure of Melbourne society. Visy has also been linked to the Hells Angels reputed to have ties to criminal organizations in Australia and overseas. Pratt recently had to face impropriety charges, when the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission claimed that he had engaged in price-fixing. His company was fined AU$36 million ($25 million) in the case.
The chief executive of the Pratt Foundation is Melbourne journalist Sam Lipski. A distinguished Australian journalist, Lipsky has been editor-in-chief of the Australian Jewish News and has worked as a reporter and columnist for The Age, The Australian, The Bulletin and The Sydney Morning Herald. He was also Washington correspondent for the Jerusalem Post, as well as The Australian.
Media magnate Sumner Redstone was born to a Jewish family in Boston, to Belle (née Ostrovsky) and Michael Rothstein. In 1940, his father changed the family surname from "Rothstein" to "Redstone." Redstone is the majority owner and Chairman of the Board of the National Amusements theater chain. Through National Amusements, Sumner Redstone and his family are majority owners of CBS Corporation and Viacom (itself the parent company of MTV Networks, BET, and the film studio Paramount Pictures), and are equal partners in MovieTickets.com. According to Forbes as of March 2014 he is worth US $6.2 billion.
Global Citizen was launched in 2012, alongside the Global Citizen Festival, and was the tool through which interested people had to earn tickets to the event. It is a website and mobile application designed to help interested members of the general public find effective and relevant ways to take action on extreme poverty.
In September, as the world’s leaders gathered in New York for the UN General Assembly, the Global Citizen Festival brought top artists and 60,000 “change makers” together in Central Park to urge leaders and citizens to do more to help end extreme poverty. The Festival celebrated the progress already made in fighting extreme poverty, secured financial commitments for tackling extreme poverty and disease, totaling 1.3 billion USD, and called on thousands of ambassadors to take action for “change.”
The event featured Neil Young with Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Band of Horses and K'Naan, with a special appearance by John Legend. Beyoncé also made a surprise appearance during husband Jay Z's performance.
