We see that Mrs. Hills is tied to AIG, Trilateral, CFR, etc. Three other directors of Gilead, (Madigan, Moore, and Cogan) are or are rumoured to members of the CFR. Etienne Davignon is no difference.


Together with Pehr Gyllenhammar (employee of Chase Manhattan, Kissinger Associates, Lazard, Rothschild Europe, and chairman of the Rothschild pension fund), Davignon founded the ERT - the European Table of Industrialists. Both Davignon and Gyllenhammar worked at PlaNet Finance, alongside Israeli prime minister Shimon Peres.

Davignon also played a role in the Lernout & Hauspie scandal, which centered around a company that made by far the best voice recognition / language translation software on the market (although it wasn't perfect). According to one of the founders of the company, Jo Lernout, it went wrong in 1999/2000 when L&H started to buy up US companies who were working for the CIA and the Pentagon, especially because the L&H software worked almost the same as the NSA's Echelon spy system. The Wall Street Journal accused L&H of fraudulent book keeping in August 2000 and the 2 founders, Jo Lernout and Pol Hauspie, were arrested in April 2001. According to Business Wire, Davignon became a director of Lernout & Hauspie in May 2001. Within 3 weeks, in early June, he already resigned because Fortis, the bank he is a vice-chairman of, is the largest creditor of L&H. Jo Lernout and Pol Hauspie were released in early July of 2001 and L&H went broke in October 2001, its technology sold to the US for a fraction of its actual worth. Jo Lernout later claims that board members must have been pressured by the US intelligence agencies to destroy the company, because of all the incomprehensible mistakes they made.

Davignon was also honorary chairman of Bilderberg in 1999, member of Trilateral, and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Madigan is a confirmed CFR member

Also, I think it bears repeating that Davignon is THE BILDERBERG SPEAKER, and Hills is a CO-CHAIR OF THE CFR.

These are extremely high ranking positions. You are talking about positions that would put you among the 25 most powerful people in the world.

Interesting as well, I think, that one of the Fathers of Modern Day Computing is a board member, and many of these board members are former government officials.

George P. Shultz also sits on Gilead's board.

George Pratt Shultz (born December 13, 1920) is an American economist, statesman, and businessman. He served as the United States Secretary of Labor from 1969 to 1970, as the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury from 1972 to 1974, and as the U.S. Secretary of State from 1982 to 1989. Before entering politics, he was professor of economics at MIT and the University of Chicago, serving as Dean of the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business from 1962 to 1969. Between 1974 and 1982, Shultz was an executive at Bechtel, eventually becoming the firm's president. He is currently a distinguished fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution.

On Bechtel:

According to an article in the May 5 issue of New Yorker magazine, several bin Laden family members -- part of a large, Saudi Arabian family that made a fortune in the construction business -- invested about $10 million in a private equity fund operated by former subsidiary of Bechtel before Sept. 11.

Fremont Group, a San Francisco-based private investment firm, once was a unit of Bechtel, and its board still includes Bechtel CEO Riley P. Bechtel and former U.S. Secretary of State and former Bechtel President George P. Shultz, along with several current Bechtel directors.

Fremont spokeswoman Pat Harden confirmed bin Laden's family had invested $10 million in a Fremont fund, but she said the family had no ownership stake in Fremont and its investment was made "well before the events of Sept. 11."

I haven't confirmed this yet, but if true, it's extremely telling:

During the 1980s, current Bush warlord Don Rumsfeld acted as a paid shill for a Bechtel pipeline project in the Middle East, operating with the blessing of the Reagan-Bush administration's secretary of state, George Schultz --Bechtel's former president (and now "senior counsel" to the company).

If true, it makes it much more important that both are involved in Gilead.

More on Schultz:

Shultz was well known for outspoken opposition to the "arms for hostages" scandal that would eventually become the Iran Contra situation. In a 1983 testimony before the U.S. Congress, he said that the Sandinista government in Nicaragua was "a cancer in our own land mass", that must be "cut out". He was also opposed to any negotiation with the government of Daniel Ortega: "Negotiations are a euphemism for capitulation if the shadow of power is not cast across the bargaining table."

George Shultz left office on January 20, 1989, but continues to be a strategist for the Republican Party.[citation needed] He was an advisor for George W. Bush's presidential campaign during the 2000 election, and senior member of the so-called "The Vulcans", a group of policy mentors for Bush which also included among its members Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz and Condoleezza Rice. One of his most senior advisors and confidants is former ambassador Charles Hill, who holds dual positions at the Hoover Institution and Yale University. Shultz has been called the father of the "Bush Doctrine", because of his advocacy of preventive war.[14] He generally defends the Bush administration's foreign policy.[14]

George P. Schultz was a director of the CFR from 1980 - 1982, a member of the Trilateral Commission, and attended Bilderberg in 2008.
