Traditionally, most of the Globalists and Elite who attend Bilderberg Group meetings have originated from North America, Europe and parts of Asia. However, what’s not commonly known is that there is an Australian connection to the Bilderberg Group. James Wolfensohn, the former president of the World Bank and one of the most influential Globalists, is an Australian and was born and raised in Sydney Australia. His father migrated to Australia in 1928 and was subsequently named James Wolfensohn after James Armand de Rothschild who shared his birthday and for whom his father had worked for prior to moving to Australia.
In 1980, James Wolfensohn became a citizen of the United States after it was rumoured that he was about to become president of the World Bank. He subsequently revoked his Australian Citizenship prior to being appointed. However, in 2010 he regained his citizenship to Australia and retained his citizenship to the United States to become a dual citizen. In fact, Wolfensohn has admitted on record that he was forced to give up his Australian Citizenship to become the World Bank president. It was also reported that he had even sought permission from the former Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser to do so.
As a Globalist and supporter of the new world order and world government, Wolfensohn has been listed as an official participant at the 2012, 2011 and 2010 Bilderberg Group meetings. Within the official Bilderberg Group participants list on the http://www.bilderbergmeetings.org/ website, Wolfensohn was recorded as a participant representing the United States of America and not Australia. Although considering that in 2011 and 2012 he was also an Australian citizen, it’s interesting to note that the organisers of the Bilderberg Group meetings ignored this fact.
As a young Australian of the 1950’s, Wolfensohn was educated in the public education system up until he began his secondary education. It has been reported in the Daily Bell that Wolfensohn had an Interest in both music and sports and was on the Australian Fencing Team at the 1956 Summer Olympics. Wolfensohn was also an officer in the Royal Australian Air Force.
Bilderberger James Wolfensohn’s affections for Australia are arguably stronger than his affections for the United States of America. Wolfensohn was quoted in an interview with journalist George Negus prior to holding dual citizenship between Australia and the United States as saying “I feel significantly Australian. I still have a farm in Australia, near Canberra, and now that it is possible to have dual citizenship, I hope to apply soon to recover my Australian citizenship”.
Considering that Wolfensohn was a participant at the 2012 Bilderberg Group meeting and that the formation of the Asian Union was reported to be on the agenda, is it a coincidence that Wolfensohn at the 2012 ‘Asia Society AustralAsia Centre’ annual dinner urged Australians to jettison their traditional orientation toward Europe, the U.S. and the U.K. in favour of a sustained engagement with Asia? He was quoted as saying that “there are projections that by 2050, 60 per cent of the world’s GDP will come from Asia. China and India will make up 50 per cent of that.” He then went onto say “Australia needs a fundamental updating of its natural psyche, focused more on Asia than its traditional links with Europe, the United Kingdom and the United States”.
It’s more likely than not that James Wolfensohn will participate in the 2013 Bilderberg Group meeting. His affiliation with Australia means that the Bilderberg Group will maintain its links to Australia for many years to come. With the upcoming introduction of the Australian carbon tax in July 2012 (another agenda item rumoured to be discussed at the 2012 Bilderberg Group meeting), to what extent does James Wolfensohn and the Bilderberg Group influence the Australian Government?
