Lady de Rothschild and McCain: A Marriage Made in Bilderberg (or Hell, Whichever Came First)

I first got introduced to "Lady de Rothschild" during her interview on Wolf Blitzer's show, as she explained why she was going from being a Hillary supporter to endorsing John McCain. She said so many absurd things that I couldn't help but wonder who the hell she was, where she came from, how she could possibly believe the crap she was spewing (unchallenged) on Blitzer's show, and, of course, what kind of person could slide frictionlessly from ardent support for Clinton to ardent support for McCain. Can you say "Bilderberg?"First, what this woman actually said, with a very straight face, on Blitzer:
- "This is so sad, when the democratic party plays the class card and they try to divide America."
- "The Democratic party tries to take those issues [gay rights, abortion] as wedge issues. There is no question that John McCain & Sarah Palin are going to take away the right to choose or take away gay rights."
- "I'm a graduate of Columbia Law School" yet she's not concerned that McCain's Supreme Court justice selections would overturn Roe, because, "A woman's right to choose is in the Constitution. ..It is protected..."
- "I don't not like Obama"
Only on Planet Bilderberg. And even there you have to be drunk, insane, or a liar.
Okay, here's why all the Bilderberg references: This woman, this....person...who thinks Obama is elitist, who can't stand all that "class card" playing, apparently met her hubby, Mr. de Rothschild, at the f'ing Bilderberg conference. According to Portfolio Magazine's interview of her last year:
When 67-year-old British banking scion Sir Evelyn Rothschild first set eyes on 44-year-old Lynn Forester at the 1998 Bilderberg conference—the matchmaker was none other than Henry Kissinger—she was already a woman of major means.Bilderberg Group. You know, that simple little get-together of the international power and money set which Wikipedia describes as an "elite group [that] meets annually at luxury hotels or resorts throughout the world — normally in Europe — and once every four years in the United States or Canada. The homey little group that includes Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz, as well as, apparently, Kissinger and Mr. de Rothschild. The down to earth, definitely not class oriented, club which holds "an unofficial annual invitation-only conference of around 130 guests, most of whom are persons of influence in the fields of business, media and politics."
A corporate lawyer and telecommunications entrepreneur, the sparkly blond ex-wife of former New York politician Andrew Stein had made more than $100 million from the sale of cleverly acquired wireless broadband licenses. She was also sexy, charming, and dazzlingly well connected. Two years later, after the smitten Sir Evelyn divorced his second wife, Victoria Schott, the mother of his three children, Forester became the third Lady Rothschild. After marrying in November 2000 at a London synagogue, they honeymooned at the White House, guests of Lynn's good friends Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Today the New Jersey-born Lady de Rothschild—the flashiest hostess in London—is mates with Tony and Cherie Blair, among other topflight Britons. She's also mistress of the former John Singer Sargent home in Chelsea and of Ascott House, the 3,200-acre Rothschild family estate in Buckinghamshire, and the chief executive of E.L. Rothschild, the holding company that she owns with her third husband to manage investments in the Economist and various enterprises in India.
So you can clearly see where Lady de R. would be offended by smug elitism surrounding Obama, outraged--just outraged by intimations that she herself just might be an elite. Did i mention that the Bilderberg group is one of the most elite in the world?
As implied in yesterday's WTW post about McCain's connections to the fanatic deregulators, the fact that this tippity top mega-rich socialite who tries to pass herself off as ordinary now strongly endorses McCain almost undoubtedly says something really bad about McCain. As for her dissing the Dems, good riddance to her. A better concern is why in the world was this person supporting Hillary Clinton? And does that reason explain why Obama didn't seriously consider Hillary as VP? I sure as hell hope so.
Now to what I consider the most amazing of the many amazing things to leak from this woman's pampered brain: there's no need to worry about Roe being overturned because abortion rights are "in the constitution?" Really? This woman has a law degree from Columbia? A law degree from Columbia for God's sake? Columbia must be so proud.
Roe itself established that abortion rights are protected rights under the constitution. Being a judicial decision, that conclusion can be overturned at any time that a majority of Supreme Court justices decide that it was "wrongly decided." At that point, presto!! It's no longer in the constitution.
That's why the religious moralists fight so hard to get their philosophical brethren onto the Supreme Court. They are bound and determined to get Roe overturned, and they--and everyone except Lady de R., knows they are probably one, and certainly no more than two, justices away from that goal.
Not that overturning Roe would affect Lady de R, of course. If she somehow got pregnant by Mr. de R. or anyone else, she's got enough money to find an abortion anywhere in the US, as well as the option of simply going to Europe for one.
And Lady de R.'s honesty and consistency? What do you think?
Her claim she doesn't "not like" Obama is directly opposite to her statement in an different interview:
This is a hard decision for me personally because frankly I don’t like him,” she said of Obama in an interview with CNN’s Joe Johns. “I feel like he is an elitist. I feel like he has not given me reason to trust him.And her feeling that McCain/Palin will be better for America? Seems a little at odds with this, from the Portfolio Magazine interview:
And I think if history is our guide, we've had stronger economies, more wealth creation, under Democratic presidents than we have under Republican presidents. So I don't understand why all my capitalist friends aren't Democrats.On Planet Bilderberg, as in Hell, words mean whatever the spinmeisters want them to mean. On Planet Bilderberg, as in Hell, everything is open to negotiation, from the truth to reality. On Planet Bilderberg, as in Hell, the miserable must be condemend for having the audacity to notice that they are being made miserable by those above them.
Interviewer: Really? Are they buying this argument, Lynn?
Well, you know, it's funny. As people are getting a better and better look at Hillary, they're understanding that Hillary is talking in a way that is so positive for America. We can think we live in elite circles, but we don't. I mean, America is about Main Street, and Main Street is coming around to Hillary. And Wall Street and the C.E.O.'s can't buck that tide, and if they think they have some vested interest in their tax rate, those are a very limited number of people who think only about that.
Adios, Lady de R., ta-ta and let the winds of Bilderberg be always at your back, as they are in your head.
I had to add this. Here's a comment from the Lady de R. back in April of 2008, responding to a post of the names of all Democrats Abroad who were going to the Dem convention in Denver (the list included the Lady, of course):

Well, Lady, I trust not. And God knows I trust you not. Let's hope that your despicable behavior and indefensible comments are so obvious to voters that your support of McCain does, in fact, amount to helping get a Democrat in the White House.
