Ford is Dead

Most people remember Gerald Ford as the klutzy fool who indefensibly pardoned Nixon. Maybe that's why nobody seems to recall his hand in Indonesia's genocidal campaign against East Timor. Or his membership in the Warren Commission, which determined that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone perpetrator of the JFK assassination.

Gerald Rudolph Ford was probably the greatest natural athlete who ever assumed the Presidency. He tripped on the Air Force One staircase in Salzburg, Austria and tumbled down the stairs in full view of press and local dignitaries.

The Chicago Tribune, which has avoided Bilderberg for 30 years, reported in 1965 how then Rep. Gerald R. Ford (R-Mich.) had attended two Bilderberg meetings, in 1962 and 1964.
Ford had been attacked for belonging to a “secret group” after he said there was no place in the Republican Party for a secret organization such as the John Birch Society.
“My district is 65 per cent Dutch ancestry,” Ford said. “Just mention that and say that Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands sponsors the meetings. I don’t care what else you write.”
The Tribune piece noted that during the 1964 campaign, the Bilderberg meetings were described as gatherings of “king makers.” (source). More on Black Listed News
