Mark Rutte, the ever-smiling Dutchman with a university degree in history who looks like a middle-ranking bank clerk, is the next secretary general of the world’s most important military alliance.

As Dutch prime minister for almost 14 years, he has largely shielded himself from the public eye, and currently even the NY Times can’t manage to interview him in the run-up to the important NATO summit, and instead has to go through his handful of close acquaintances who also have nothing really to say.

Rutte’s image is carefully cultivated, says Wilma Borgman, a Dutch journalist who has covered him for decades and recently co-authored a book called The Rutte Mystery.

“He doesn’t let anyone get close to him,”

Borgman said.

“Of all the people we’ve interviewed, no one has ever come to his home. That’s unusual by Dutch standards.”

The NY Times doesn’t want to say it, but he seems like the project of the Dutch royal family. His father Izaäk Rutte worked for a trading company; initially as an importer in the colony of the Dutch East Indies, later as a director in the Netherlands.

We now know that Kamala Harris in the USA is inspired by her grandfather, who worked for the British administration in the colony of India. Joe Biden’s ancestor could be Christopher, also a colonial administrator.

The high nobility has been recruiting people and their descendants for over 1000 years. Loyalty is tested across generations.

After completing his studies, Mark Rutte entered the business world and worked as a manager for Unilever, a British corporate giant with a turnover of 50 billion per year. In April 2011, the European Commission fined Unilever, along with Procter & Gamble and Henkel, a total of 315.2 million euros for forming a cartel.

The Dutch royal family consists essentially of the Orange-Nassau, Mecklenburg and Lippe dynasties. Orange-Nassau played a key role in ousting the Stewarts from the British throne and paving the way for the Hanoverian Guelphs.

The Dutch royal family is probably one of the major shareholders in the (Royal Dutch) Shell corporation. The father of the late Queen Beatrix, Prince Bernhard of Lippe-Biesterfeld, worked for IG Farben and the SS. In 1954, Prince Bernhard initiated the Bilderberg Conference.

The strange leaders of NATO

According to Russian propaganda, NATO is a monolithic behemoth force, worse than Nazi Germany. But the organization virtually fell apart after 1991 and its leadership has been highly dubious from the very start.

General Hastings Ismay

General Hastings Ismay, 1st Baron Ismay, became the first NATO Secretary General. He was a member of the British Privy Council, a deputy lieutenant of the Crown and a recipient of the highest medals. His father sat on the Legislative Council of the British occupying government in India. He himself served as military secretary of the British Viceroy of India and was a member of the Defense Committee and the War Cabinet during the Second World War. He was also busy preparing for the invasion of Normandy. Ismay was honored by Queen Elizabeth II with the Order of the Garter. His youngest daughter Mary had married George Seymour, equerry to Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, and their daughter Katharine is a goddaughter of Princess Margaret. He seemed the obvious candidate for NATO. Yet the British elite had this strange, secret relationship with the Soviets. Ismay served under Lord Louis Mountbatten, particularly in India. Mountbatten was appointed the last British Viceroy of India and Ismay offered to serve as his chief of staff. Both were intended to lead India’s transition to independence. Ismay soon concluded that the situation there was dire and extremely unstable. The country needed a new, carefully crafted division, but because of a completely botched plan, more than a million people were slaughtered; about 15 million were displaced. Countless people were mutilated. King George VI had sent his cousin Louis Mountbatten to find the “least worst way” to withdraw British colonial administrators from India and its 400 million inhabitants. Mountbatten brought in Cyril Radcliffe, a lawyer who had never set foot in India, to complete the project in just five weeks and then surprise Indian executives with the results. Maintaining good relations with India and preventing the country from sliding into communism was a priority. Important monitoring posts for the Soviet nuclear program were on Indian soil. On or about May 31, 1947, Major General Stewart Menzies (known as “C” and head of MI6) drove from MI6 headquarters at 54 Broadway to 10 Downing Street. He had an urgent appointment with Prime Minister Attlee. Top secret MI6-controlled RAF reconnaissance flights from Chaklala outside Rawalpindi over the selected Soviet test site at Semipalatinsk revealed activities related to the construction of buildings, railway lines and an airfield. Intelligence from Moscow revealed that the Kurchatov Institute, which designed the first Soviet nuclear weapon at site KB-11, had made important breakthroughs. Mountbatten was also present at this meeting. Nothing that occurred during this meeting was recorded.

Paul-Henri Charles Spaak

The socialist Spaak was allowed to become NATO chief; and that in the middle of the Cold War. He came from a privileged family in Belgium. His maternal grandfather, Paul Janson, was an important member of the Liberal Party. His mother, Marie Janson, was a socialist and the first woman to enter the Belgian Senate, and his father, Paul Spaak, was a poet and playwright. Other well-known members of his family included his uncle Paul-Emile Janson, who was Prime Minister of Belgium from 1937 to 1938, which required the blessing of the noble House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, which also held the British throne. After studying law, Spaak practiced law in Brussels, where he “performed outstandingly in the defense of communists accused of conspiring against the security of the country and others, including Fernando de Rosa, an anarchist Italian student who tried to kill Crown Prince Umberto of Italy. He was strongly committed to the founding of the Council of Europe. As leader of the European Movement, he continued to advocate for European integration, and it was not long before he returned to the fray in a new and more promising forum: From 1952 to 1953 he chaired the Joint Assembly of the European Coal and Steel Community from which the European Union later emerged. Baron Robert Rothschild, a Belgian diplomat, was involved. He helped draft the 1957 Treaty of Rome and the creation of the European Economic Community (EEC) in 1958. Fernando Valera, Spanish Republican governor-in-exile, wrote to Spaak in 1949 suggesting getting rid of Franco in Spain. Valera downplayed the threat of communism. Spaak liked the plan and wanted to get the US government on board. Valera was the founder of Spain’s radical socialist party in the early 1930s.

Dirk Stikker

A banker and politician from Holland, Stikker was appointed NATO Secretary General. After the end of the Second World War, Queen Wilhelmina ordered the recall of Parliament and Stikker became a member of the Senate, taking over from the late Samuel van den Bergh. Stikker has held numerous seats as a corporate director and non-profit director on boards of directors in the business and industrial world, as well as on the boards of several international non-governmental organizations and research institutes (Unilever, Van Lanschot, Netherlands Atlantic Association, Carnegie Foundation, Trilateral Commission). The Trilateral Commission includes, in particular, representatives of large companies, some of which sold important technology to Russia and granted loans: AT&T, ITT, Xerox, Mobil, Exxon, Chase Manhattan Bank, First Chicago Corp., General Electric, TRW, Archer Daniels Midland, RJR Nabisco and Goldman Sachs. Stikker was awarded several of the British Empire’s highest honors, including the Knight Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order.

Peter Carington, 6th Baron Carrington

This baron was a member of the British Privy Council and even a deputy lieutenant of the crown. He served during the Second World War and played a key role as a tank commander during Operation Market Garden in the Netherlands in 1944. He served as First Lord of the Admiralty under Harold Macmillan until October 1963. With the Conservatives in 1970, Carrington became Defense Secretary under Edward Heath. At NATO from 1984 to 1988 he was particularly committed to establishing “normal” relations with the USSR. From 1990 to 1998, Carington led the Bilderberg conferences, which brought together top corporations that had sold key technologies to the Soviets. From 1983 to 2002 he was president of the Pilgrims Society. He was the second most senior serving member of the Privy Council after the Duke of Edinburgh. The ancestor Charles Wynn-Carington, 1st Marquess of Lincolnshire, sat on the Privy Council and in 1882 became Senior Grand Warden of the United Masonic Grand Lodge of England.

As a student, Heath traveled extensively throughout Europe. His resistance to appeasement was fueled by his first-hand experience of a Nuremberg Nazi party rally in 1937, where he met leading Nazis Hermann Göring, Joseph Goebbels and Heinrich Himmler at an SS cocktail party. He later described Himmler as “the most evil man I have ever met.” He knew nothing about the great British deception that feigned sympathies for the Nazis. He favored ties with the People’s Republic of China, visited Mao Zedong in Beijing in 1974 and 1975 and remained a guest of honor in China on frequent visits thereafter, establishing a close relationship with Mao’s successor Deng Xiaoping. Heath realized he needed to move further away from the United States, and therefore downplayed the special relationship that had long bound the two nations together. His relations with Thatcher remained poor, and in 1979–80 he rejected her offers for the posts of Ambassador to the United States and Secretary General of NATO. In later life, according to his official biographer Philip Ziegler, at dinner parties Heath tended to “lapse into sullen silence or completely ignore the woman next to him and talk over her to the next man.” Others at the time claimed that Heath simply wasn’t talkative at parties. There were many allusions to this in the publication Private Eye, and shouts of insinuation that he was homosexual were heard outside Downing Street during protests by trade unionists against his industrial relations law. In April 2015, the Metropolitan Police investigated a rape charge against Heath; however, the matter was dropped. In August 2015, multiple police forces investigated allegations of child sexual abuse by Heath. Hampshire, Jersey, Kent, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Thames Valley police authorities, as well as London’s Metropolitan Police, investigated such claims. It was reported that a man had claimed he was raped by Heath in a flat in Mayfair in 1961, aged 12, after he ran away from home. Allegations against Heath were investigated as part of Operation Midland, a Metropolitan Police investigation into allegations of past child abuse and related homicides. Also in August 2015, Sky News reported that Jersey Police was investigating allegations against Heath as part of Operation Whistle, and at the same time a similar investigation, Operation Conifer, was launched by Wiltshire Police. In November 2016, criminologist Richard Hoskins said that the evidence used against Heath as part of Operation Conifer, including discredited allegations of satanic ritual abuse, was “absurd”. In September 2017, it was announced that the Independent Child Sexual Abuse Inquiry Commission would review the police investigation into Heath. Police said if Heath were still alive they would have questioned him cautiously in relation to seven of the 42 allegations, but no conclusions should be drawn about his guilt or innocence. In his summary report, Chief Constable Mike Veale confirmed that “no further corroborating evidence was found” to support the claims of satanic abuse.

Jens Stoltenberg

He is an economist, journalist and Norwegian politician who has served as Secretary General of NATO since 2014. A member of the Norwegian Workers’ Party, he was previously the Prime Minister of Norway from 2000 to 2001 and again from 2005 to 2013. Stoltenberg attended the Oslo Waldorf School and took his first steps into politics in his early youth, when he was influenced by his sister Camilla, who at the time was a member of the then Marxist-Leninist group Red Youth. Resistance to the Vietnam War was his triggering motivation. After heavy bombing raids on the North Vietnamese port city of Hai Phong at the end of the Vietnam War, he took part in protests against the US embassy in Oslo. At least once, embassy windows were smashed by protesters throwing stones. Several of Stoltenberg’s friends were arrested by the police after these events. In 2011, Stoltenberg said:

“We sang the refrain: Singing Norway, Norway out of Nato. It was a hit.”

Let’s remember what the Soviet defector Jan Sejna explained, namely that the USSR wanted to attack Scandinavia with millions of troops. From 1985 to 1989 Stoltenberg was chairman of the workers’ youth league. Until 1990 he had regular contact with a Soviet diplomat. He ended this relationship after the Norwegian Police Security Service informed him that his contact was a KGB agent and warned him against further contacts. The internal code name the KGB gave Stoltenberg was “Steklov.” On July 22, 2011, a bomb exploded in Oslo in front of the government building housing the prime minister’s office, killing eight people and injuring others. About an hour later, a shooting spree was reported on Utøya, an island 45 minutes away where the ruling Labor Party was holding its annual youth camp, killing 69 people. Stoltenberg was prime minister at the time. The terrorist Anders Behring Breivik praised the idea of an alliance with Russia in his manifesto and is said to have visited Eastern Europe and had contacts there. He wanted to start a civil war.
