The WEF Meets in Saudi Arabia: Last Stand for the Global Elites?

From April 28 to 29 the World Economic Forum convened a “Special Meeting” at Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.  Some have dubbed it an emergency meeting, but in reality, it was an emergency agenda, grafted on to the Conference, which provided its real significance.  The key importance of what occurred during those two days will be discussed below, but first a few introductory remarks about the “Lords of Davos” versus the “Spirit of Bandung.”

In April 1955, the representatives of 29 nations met in Indonesia, at the Bandung Conference.  Out of that gathering was born what became known as the “Non-Aligned Movement.”  The 29 nations who took part collectively had a population of 1.5 billion people, more than half of all the human beings then alive.  Amid the “Cold War,” with the Soviet Bloc confronting the United States and its allies, these nations proclaimed that they would follow a political path completely independent of the competing super-powers.  They would not allow the destinies of their nations to be dictated by outside forces.  These were sovereign nations fighting for the advancement of their own people.

Today, in looking at a meeting of the World Economic Forum, what do we find?  Billionaires and other financial and corporate oligarchs speaking from the stage, proposing policies which will result in mass murder world-wide. And in the audience, we find representatives of many of the same nations who were at Bandung in 1955, applauding the speeches which announce their own doom! It is enough to make Gandhi, Sukarno, and Nasser cry.

The truth is that nations have been bludgeoned into submission. Most “sovereign” nations now lie supine, before the omnipresent power of a new empire, but it is not an “American Empire.”  America, which is now being destroyed by the Green New Deal and related policies of the Biden collective, is as much a victim of this imperial agenda as the poorest nations in sub-Sahara Africa. What we have witnessed over the last 30 years is the (temporary) triumph of a global financial elite, a private oligarchy—the modern-day British Empire. And all nations have been ordered to obey this new imperial arrangement.

The issue today is not a “unipolar” world of American dominance versus a “multipolar” coalition of nations from Asia, Africa, and Latin America. What stands before us, what is crystal clear at every WEF conference, is a private global financial and corporate empire, and it is an empire now extended to the absolute breaking point.

At Riyadh

The WEF’s “Special Meeting on Global Collaboration, Growth and Energy for Development,” in Saudi Arabia was planned with a pre-set agenda, one which once again focused on the “urgent need” to impose a policy of green fascism on every nation in the world, and since that agenda was somewhat locked in, there were a number of panels on “fighting climate change” and “sustainable development”—catch-phrases for imperial genocide—but in this article we will not waste space discussing this repetitive, if deadly, nonsense.

Far more significant was an entirely different second agenda which was grafted onto the conference, one which focused primarily on Israel’s war in Gaza and secondarily on the war in Ukraine. The two individuals who were assigned the task of presenting the imperial game-plan for these crises were U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and British Foreign Secretary and former Prime Minister David Cameron (or Baron Cameron of Chipping Norton, having been raised to the Peerage by King Charles in 2023). Both individuals were spotlighted at the Conference with prominent interviews by WEF President Børge Brende.

Clothed in the sheepskin of strategies for “peace,” what was actually presented was a plan for escalating confrontation with Russia and China and anyone allied with them. Both toadies began by defining a few “irredeemable” enemies—nations apparently outside the human family—including Russia, Iran, and the Houthis of Yemen, with China, Hamas and several other nations and groups in a “gray zone” of “will they or won’t they” play ball with the “global consensus.”  Blinken’s talk was particularly unhinged from reality, while Cameron just acted the part of the aristocratic “British Public-School bully.”

The Plan

On the surface, both Cameron and Blinken discussed the question of Mideast Peace. Stop the killing! Save the people! Blinken, who appears to be competing with Gavin Newsom for the world title of Mr. Hairdo, seemed a very unlikely spokesman for this cause, and his blood-curdling threats to Russia belie any claims to being a champion for peace.  As these ghouls have proven with the death of more than 600,000 human beings on the Ukrainian side alone in their other current war, “saving lives” is not their priority.  The real agenda, the real plan is to use the Gaza tragedy to escalate undeclared economic warfare against both Russia and China, as well as India.  The intention is to place the entirety of the Gulf of Aden, the Red Sea, and the Suez Canal, as well as the Strait of Hormuz and much of the Persian Gulf under the control of the United States and Britain, with the possible assistance of other NATO member-states.  The key to making this work is to draw Saudi Arabia, along with other Gulf States, such as Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, as well most of the other Arab nations into a de facto alliance against Iran, but the real target is Russian and Chinese influence in the region.

Any competent student of history would recognize this as classic British Great Game strategy.  The British Empire recognized the strategic importance of the Mid-East “Crossroads of the World” as far back as the 18th century, even before the discovery of oil, and they have manipulated events in the region ever since.

According to reliable sources, the overall plan now being discussed by U.S. and Saudi officials includes: 1) a cease fire and exchange of hostages, 2) recognition of Israel by Saudi Arabia, 3) humanitarian and economic aid to Gaza, financed by the Gulf States, 4) deeper economic ties with Saudi Arabia, including selling them nuclear power plants, 5) an Arab peace-keeping force in Gaza and the West Bank, 6) the total diplomatic and military isolation of Iran. 

If they can get Saudi Arabia, Hamas, and Israel to accept these terms, the intention is to stop Chinese economic expansion into the region, eliminate Russia from any role in the region and place the strategic choke points in the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea under U.S. and British control.  The impetus to act now is that the global financial and economic crisis is worsening by the minute.  A financial detonation could occur at any moment, even before the November election.

Essentially, the word from the World Economic Forum to every allegedly sovereign nation is: “You’re either ‘on the bus or off the bus’.  Russia and Iran are off the bus, and if you choose to side with them, you will suffer the same terrible fate.”

Can this work?  Well, one thing to think about is to consider the “leadership” of the key nations involved in these imperial schemes:  Picture in your mind the images of Joe Biden, Emmanuel Macron, Rishi Sunak and Olaf Scholz.  Compare them to the leaders of those nations at any time in the past.  We are talking about people who have zero leadership qualities and who possess very shallow intellects.

On the other hand, we witness an aroused citizenry in the United States and much of Europe.  We also see the likelihood that Donald Trump will return to the White House in January 2025.  We also know that Russia will never surrender to the global elite.  Desperate oligarchs are dangerous, but they are not always successful.  What we are witnessing could merely be preparations for their last stand.
