The Fed, The CFR & The Blackstone Group
16 Jan 2002
Conflict of interests? Bribery of public officials? Fraud? Monopolization? Racketeering? Treason? Terrorism? Mass murder?
Who is Peter G. Peterson? For whom does he work? Well, he's the Chairman of the Fed, the Council on Foreign Relations and The Blackstone Group, among other things....

Conflict of interests? Bribery of public officials? Fraud? Monopolization? Racketeering? Treason? Terrorism? Mass murder?

Is Peterson just a "fall guy" for the "Big Boys" such as Henry Kissinger and John Forbes "Skull & Bones" Kerry?

Federal Reserve Bank of New York
The Blackstone Group
New York, New York

"Peter G. Peterson has been chairman of The Blackstone Group since 1985, following 11 years as chairman and chief executive officer of the investment banking firm of Lehman Brothers, Kuhn, Loeb, Inc. He was Secretary of Commerce in 1972 and 1973 after serving as Assistant to the President for International Economic Affairs and Executive Director of the Council on Economic Policy in 1971 and 1972.

"Prior to his government service, Mr. Peterson was with Bell & Howell Company for 13 years, beginning as an executive vice president and director and moving up to the CEO position of the company.

"He earned a bachelor of science degree from Northwestern University and a master of business administration degree from the University of Chicago. In addition, he has received honorary doctorate degrees from a number of universities.

"Mr. Peterson is a director of Rockefeller Center Properties, Inc.; Sony Corp. and Transtar Inc. He is chairman of the board of the Council on Foreign Relations and Institute for International Economies, president of The Concord Coalition and a trustee of the Committee for Economic Development, the National Bureau of Economic Research, and New York's Museum of Modern Art. He also is founding member of the Bi-Partisan Budget Appeal."

Council on Foreign Relations (war profiteers and a primary branch of the Anglo-American shadow government):

The Blackstone Group (examine for yourself):

"In 1985 Blackstone opened its first small office with a staff of four, including the two founders Peter G. Peterson and Stephen A. Schwarzman and a balance sheet of $400,000. From those small beginnings, beside big dreams, the founders held certain core beliefs:

"In a world of giant organizations with a broad array of services, there was room for a small firm with the highest levels of professionalism and integrity, senior level attention to clients and relationships, and minimum conflicts of interest.

"In the 1980s world of 'bear hugs' and more or less hostile takeovers, the firm would only invest capital in strictly friendly situations, supporting strong management teams.

"In a world of ever larger firms, there were gifted, entrepreneurial professionals who, in a more personal setting, with institutional credibility and congruent goals, would join Blackstone in creating affiliated businesses in their areas of expertise.

"In a world of 'other people's money,' the firm would always put significant amounts of its own money in investments it made The Blackstone team's success in pursuing those goals and beliefs is reflected today in the firm's outstanding reputation and its acknowledged role as a major global player."

Hmmmmm.... Very interesting. Everything's becoming curiouser and curiouser. Not to mention clearer. Especially since 9-11....
