There is now a proven, direct link between Obama and the Bilderbergers.

So far what I have read on the TLC makes it seem like an 'old boys club' but not much more. Tell me how this is a threat?
Also I think it would be helpful to create a stronger connection to the BG, and I also need to do some reading on these guys before I admit that there is something to this story.
Still thanks for bringing it to light. Regardless I am not surprised that the rich and powerful are the ones involved in political campaigns, but that does not mean I can not be shown that this is an issue.

I find it odd that people of clear intelligence on this site appear shocked and awed (couldn’t resist) when they find out that a potential president is 'linked to dubious or nefarious people/organisations).

Sadly I am becoming more and more convinced. I really was holding out and hoping for improvements but this looks really bad. I should have been hip to this, but I guess subconsciously I chose to ignore the sad reality of our situation.
My question is this: What can we do to create change?
This can NOT be the end, there has to be a path out of this mess.
The mythological beheading of Medusa symbolizes the ultimate silencing of female wisdom and expression. It is the act which stops her growth, limits her potential, movement and cultural contributions. She is obliterated and her severed head is flaunted on the Acropolis and other works of art in pride of her and all women's subjugation by violent men. She is broken and her body enslaved. Her spirit, her mind, her spiritual powers are killed. Her once honored forces of female creativity and destruction are halted. Her role as dynamic mediatrix degraded. Her life-giving, death-wielding powers and wild forces of nature are controlled, tamed, and mastered by the male order. The cycles of life and nature are made to conform to his linear perspective.
The Perseus myth was invented to explain the appearance of Gorgon Medusa's face, or mask, on Athena's shield and aegis, the image of Athena that was inherited from the pre-Hellenic period. It is not surprising to learn that the earliest images of Athena had a striking resemblance to the revered Cretan serpent-goddess-priestess. Although Athena changes, in art she is consistently associated with snakes as they appear on her shoulders and on her armor, along with Medusa's face as the central image.
The Perseus myth was also an attempt to conceal Athena's roots in the Libyan Amazon Serpent-Goddess-Trinity-Athene, (a deity that was also present in Minoan Crete). In pre-Hellenic myths Athena was said to have come from the uterus of Lake Tritonis, (meaning Three Queens), the same place that Medusa is said to have ruled, hunted and led troops in Athenian myth. The older myths are more specific, they say that Athene was born of the Three Queens of Libya themselves, the Triple Goddess, with Metis-Medusa as her destroyer aspect.
