“I am taken captive, and I know not by whom, but I am taken.”
“Marx hardly dealt with the concept of nationalism at all and discounted it as a major force. Lenin recognized it to be tactically useful in a revolution, but of no use after that.”

“Secret Committee” “of Power” Independently Confirmed
Quebec author Robin Philpot, a faithful chorister of the New World Order in Quebec (who pretends to expose it while concealing it with the usual canards), nonetheless furnishes added detail on the secret committee at Power Corporation in his 2014 update of his 2008 book, [translation] Behind The Desmarais State: Power. Philpot is one of the many authors of Le Goût du Québec, L’après référendum 1995 (a lament for the near-miss Soviet takeover of 1995). See my post Singing Tomorrows.
The secret committee at Power was first exposed by tactical advisor to the Communist Parti Québécois, “former Marxist-Leninist leader” Jean-François Lisée in his 1990 book In The Eye of the Eagle. Lisée’s end-notes, however, leave much to the imagination. Documents behind his account of the secret committee are too vaguely referenced to easily identify them in a search for the originals. Philpot has resolved that problem by giving us the title and date of the relevant dispatch by American “diplomat”, E.C. Bittner (who may have been under cover in Ottawa for the CIA), both of which were omitted by Lisée: “Quebec Separatism and the Liberal Leadership Race”, (3 January 1968).
You can read my exclusive English translation of a segment of that free Introduction: “Behind The Desmarais State: Power” which confirms the 1967 “secret committee” at Power Corporation. The secret committee, including Pierre Elliott Trudeau, called for the Communist Parti Québécois to be set up and led by Communist René Lévesque. If the communism isn’t immediately obvious, it’s the communism of the New Left called “Industrial Democracy,” first trotted out in Yugoslavia under Marshal Tito in 1950, and touted by Leo Roback in 1970 as “the true heir of Karl Marx”.
<h2 style="text-align:center;padding-bottom:9px;padding-top:12px;"“Power” Made René Lévesque A Star
Philpot — as I said, a faithful chorister to the New world Order — claims Power Corporation intended to “marginalize” René Lévesque and “beat” “separatism”. In fact, Power Corporation and the federal Liberals upgraded Lévesque and gave him a new political party to lead.
What Philpot, and Lisée as well, don’t want readers to see is that Power Corporation built its own “separatist” movement using Lévesque to merge the existing Red, Pink and Bourgeois parties. Is that “marginalizing”? Is that “beating” “separatism”? No. They made Lévesque a star. Their star. And that is the secret. Big Business, what Professor Antony Sutton called the “corporate socialists”, created the Parti Québécois to restructure Canada and North America to suit their design for the new global world.
So to counter these obvious facts in the segment Philpot has to quote in order to write his political pot-boiler — funded by tax dollars by the way — Philpot notes that René Lévesque and Jacques Parizeau alone in Quebec politics (respectively the leaders of the 1980 and 1995 referendums) had no “links” with the Desmarais.
But of course they did! They were secret agents of Desmarais who set up the Communist PQ for them; who ran two referendums for them. Publicly, they had to dress down Power Corporation. Ties between them would not have fit with the illusion of Desmarais “opposing” “separatism”. — which is how our corrupt and dumbed-down press and media represent Power Corporation, as being opposed to Quebec “sovereignty” — when in fact Power Corporation is one of the globalist authors of the means toward dismantling the whole of Canada by secession: the invention and set-up of the PQ itself through the “secret committee” hosted on its business premises.
The Power-controlled PQ used “separatism” to swell its ranks; yet, when referendum time arrived, both Lévesque and Parizeau switched from “sovereignty” (independence for Quebec) to “association” or “partnership”: and that is where the wanted “negotiation” lies: the “negotiation” by Canada’s federal government (also controlled by Power Corporation) on behalf of the “rest of Canada” with Power-controlled Quebec after a “Yes” in a referendum to secede. In other words, Canada will “negotiate” its own suicide. The treacherous multinational corporations don’t want to be blamed for that, but they plan to be the beneficiaries of this corporate coup on Canada and the West.
Philpot tells us that Power controlled Trudeau and put him in office, and also Chrétien, Paul Martin, Stephen Harper and Brian Mulroney. Naturally: because any of these men might have been called upon to “negotiate” the dismantling of Canada — its re-federation — with Power’s Communist PQ after a “Yes” in a rigged referendum. (I’m very sure the 1995 referendum was highly rigged; and quite possibly, also the one in 1980.)
René Lévesque and Jacques Parizeau had to keep their distance from Power Corporation. They had to find fault with it or threaten it or denounce Power Corporation to create the impression of distance.
Lévesque denounced Power Corporation expressly in the PQ’s 1972 Communist manifesto (free download in the sidebar, see the blue lightning). At page 68, Lévesque (and his gang) said:
“Conversely, there are nonetheless a number of sectors where indefinite growth in the size of companies hardly presents any true advantages. The economic utility of conglomerates (or “empires”) is perhaps obvious for the financiers who constituted them, but not for the community. All in all, the fact that one must be satisfied with only one steel-works does not extend absolutely to justifying at the same time the existence of Power Corporation!”
Lévesque is threatening to break up Power Corporation … if Quebec becomes “sovereign”, i.e. Communist.
But you will notice that despite the big send-up that Philpot gives to the “threat” posed to Quebec by this corporate Godzilla, and the self-serving complaints about “monopoly” aired so indignantly by Philpot: no Liberal government, no federal government, and certainly no Parti Québécois government, has ever dismantled Power Corporation.
Therefore, if you want to know who runs Quebec and Canada, look not to the Legislature, not to Parliament, look to Power Corporation. How else can one explain that for over 50 years, nothing has been done about it? Power is untouchable. Because Power is the boss … of political puppets and phony referendums to use the people in a “democratic” vote to cover for their lackeys when they take the country apart.
Proof that René Lévesque was working for Power Corporation is the fight he always had on his hands from the PQ militants who did not like the word “association” in Lévesque’s platform. Lévesque finally resigned, leaving Parizeau to tactically rescue the PQ as its new leader by publicly denouncing “association”, just like the rest of the Reds.
But at referendum time, Parizeau, with the aid of his fellow ball players, jumped back to the scheme that calls for “negotiation”: he now called it “partnership” instead of “association”. Six of one, half a dozen of the other.
René Lévesque includes a timeline at the back of his 1986 Memoirs entitled Attendez que je me rappelle… (Wait while I remember…), republished in 1994 by Québec/Amérique. The recurring crisis in the party over the concept of association is noted on the timeline. I’ve extracted the points, as follows:
- “October  In a statement to the (Quebec) National Assembly, René Lévesque stresses that sovereignty and association form a whole.”
- “June  Seventh Congress of the Parti Québécois. Party members support the position of René Lévesque on the link between sovereignty and association.”
- “May  Referendum. The “No” takes it with 59.6%, and 44.4% for the “Yes”. The rate of participation is 86%. The “Yes” takes a majority in 16 of the 110 voting districts.”
- “3-6 December  Congress of the Parti Québécois: hard-lining of the party, a majority of the delegates excludes from the party program all reference to association. René Lévesque threatens to resign.”
Think carefully: René Lévesque threatened to quit over the word “association”. Why? Because, without the word “association,” the whole concept of «état-associé» (the EEC-EU-EUSR for Canada–and next, North America) vanishes. It is the word “association” which will transform the top half of the continent of North America, instantaneously, into a North American (Soviet) Union disguised as “keeping Quebec in Canada”.
Again, why did René Lévesque threaten to resign over deletion of the word association? Because he was working for Power Corporation; he was leading Power Corp’s designer political party created on orders of Power Corp’s “secret committee” of Red “Liberals” … to negotiate the dismantling of Canada. And, the negotiations make the goons look like heroes. They will choir that they “saved” Canadian “unity” when a new string of banana republics agrees to “federate” in a new Canadian region, with each level under a new division of powers.
So, how did they get association back in for 1995? With a little fancy footwork, as usual. According to the Pravda-style “Canadian” “documentary” Breaking Point, on the subject of the 1995 referendum, it went like this:
[Transcript of the English film:]
[Download the clip: (coming later)]
Bouchard argues that the YES forces must provide Quebecers with the reassurance they seek.
“Ils ne sont pas des êtres politiques simples.” (They are not political imbeciles.)
On March 12th, Lucien Bouchard decides to act, knowing that many anxious sovereignists back him. He’s going to challenge Jacques Parizeau.
Bouchard wants Parizeau to offer Canada a partnership, and to hold a second referendum before declaring Quebec’s independence.
For Jacques Parizeau, this is heresy. The two men meet in the privacy of the premier’s home in Montreal. A battle of titans has begun.
He wanted to commit to a second referendum where the population of Quebec would ratify the new agreement or treaty or whatever, between Quebec and Canada, as was the case in the 1980 question.
Now, this was, for Mr. Parizeau, and for the Council of Ministers, and for the PQ, out of the question. There would be no return to the two-referendum scenario. And Mr. Bouchard knew that.”
Obviously, Lisée’s reference to an “agreement or treaty or whatever” means there had to be negotiations in 1995, as in 1980. Obviously, they need the second referendum to ratify the “negotiations” desired by Power Corporation, which created the PQ for this purpose, and this alone, using the Reds and other corrupt political tools that it controls.
So what really happened in the end? Here’s what happened. Read the 1995 question:
“Do you agree that Québec should become sovereign, after having made a formal offer to Canada for a new economic and political partnership, within the scope of the Bill respecting the future of Québec and of the agreement signed on 12 June 1995?”
The 1980 association was restored to the question of 1995 by calling it a partnership. Obviously, the result of the negotiations would have to be “ratified” … in a second referendum.
<h2 style="text-align:center;padding-bottom:9px;padding-top:12px;"The "NO" side was working for the "YES"
Parizeau knocked down Power Corp in a speech Philpot cites, delivered to the more-rabid Communist wing of the Red PQ, the so-called party “militants”, a month before the 1995 referendum.Giving the impression that Power Corporation was an enemy of Quebec “sovereignty” (as if “sovereignty” were the real target and not dismantling Canada), Parizeau cleverly denounced to his far-left Reds all the “former” employees of Power Corporation who were “working” for the “NO” side: Jean Chrétien, Daniel Johnson, John Rae (aka Cohen). But why did a Montreal businessman organize a last-minute Canada rally three days before the October 30th referendum?
Precisely because the so-called “NO” committee, so obviously controlled by Power Corporation, was doing nothing!
The “NO” committee was, in fact, controlled opposition. Their job was to lose the referendum, to ensure the “negotiations” to restructure Canada for Power Corporation and their Zionist paymasters at the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London. And we know this because Power Corporation is Quebec headquarters for distribution of the Rhodes Scholarships* that emanate from UK in the cause of the globalist bankers behind the RIIA, sometimes known in its early days by one of its front-names: The Milner Group, the folks who brought you WWI and WWII by controlling the Throne of England.
Chrétien, Johnson and Rae were, in fact, working for the YES.
Once that independent businessman began to organize the rally, the guilty parties behind the “NO” had to save face by pitching in. And that is the only reason they had to “prevail”. Because otherwise, they’d have been caught, trying to lose.
Power Corp and their poodles the Liberals could not destroy Canada by themselves. They needed someone to “fight” with to be seen “saving” Canada by pretending the “negotiations” would maintain its “unity”.
Having lost their man inside the Union Nationale party (Daniel Johnson Sr., who died before he could call a referendum), and their man Lesage and his Quebec Liberals whom the voters turfed out in 1966 (unaware that Lesage in 1961 had commissioned the very first stab at a communist plan to run Quebec’s economy), and who had offered the voters a “true national state” (as if to compete with the nationalist Union Nationale); the federal Liberals had no one capable of taking power in Quebec to play ball with. Accordingly, they and Power Corporation were obliged to “invent” a new political playmate to continue their Canadian version of the world-government game. They invented the “separatist” Parti Québécois, and René Lévesque to set it up and run it for them.
<h2 style="text-align:center;padding-bottom:9px;padding-top:12px;"Pouring Oil on the "Separatist" Fire
Philpot reports that American agent E.C. Bittner’s dispatch to Washington quotes Power Corporation Vice President Claude Frenette, who was a member of the Liberal apparatus and of the secret committee:
“The Liberal Party had established a secret committee to beat separatism in Quebec.”
He means the federal Liberal Party, which was led at that time by Lester Bowles Pearson, exposed as a Soviet agent in the U.S. MacCarran hearings, concerning which fact the FBI warned the RCMP, apparently to no avail. First, is this really the “Liberal Party” at work? Key federal ministers from Quebec are meeting Friday nights in Montreal on the business premises of a multinational corporation. Is it normal for Big Business — for any business — to host a political party? Let me rephrase that. How about “own” a political party. Or two. Or more. Is that legal? Is that constitutional? The answer is no, and it would take a few posts. Let’s do that another day.
<h2 style="text-align:center;padding-bottom:9px;padding-top:12px;""Beating" Separatism or "Building" Separatism?
Second: do you “beat” your opponent by giving him a political party; and also the press and headlines required to pursue his cause? And by giving your opponent seats in the Quebec Legislature? Do you legitimate your enemy by inviting him to pit his cause against the very existence of your country? Is that “beating” your opponent? Is that “marginalizing” René Lévesque? Hardly.
They were building René Lévesque up; they created a new party and gave it a chance to destroy Canada for these corporate traitors. Clearly, one side created the other side; one side, the “pro-Canadian-unity” corporate side, designed and launched its own “opponent”, the “separatist” side. Both “sides” were working together. Moreover, “pro-Canadian-unity” doesn’t mean the status quo; it means dismantle and refederate, focusing on the “refederate” part while ignoring the “dismantle” part, which obviously is the opposite of “unity”.
Bittner states that the “secret committee” wished to “discredit the separatist inclinations of the Estates General,” which is a French-Canadian patriotic institution. And how did the “secret committee”, which admittedly “infiltrated” the Estates General, in fact do this? How did it “discredit” the alleged “separatism” of the Estates General?
According to Bittner, the secret committee (Trudeau, Marchand, Sauvé, V.P. Frenette, and others not named) “incited [the Estates General] to take a position so radical with respect to separatism that it would be unbelievable.”
Philpot said in French, “incroyable” (unbelievable); he was obviously translating the Bittner dispatch, written in English.
In his own version of the Bittner dispatch, Jean-François Lisée says the secret committee encouraged the Estates General “to take a position on separatism so radical that it became shocking“: “une position si radicale qu’elle en devienne choquante“. He, too, is translating the dispatch.
Philpot says “unbelievable”, Lisée says “shocking”; we haven’t yet seen Bittner’s original English document. I tried to get it from the U.S. archives and was told it’s in such a tattered state it can’t be handled. Maybe, maybe not. You would think they would photograph things that can’t be handled before they put them in the freezer, so that at least the photo could be consulted.
But the point is, do you “beat” your “separatist” opponent by infiltrating his organization to make it even more “separatist”, even more radical? Do you deliberately escalate the alleged problem, in order to “beat” the problem?
In other words, do you pour oil on the fire, and then claim that you are trying to put the fire out?
Do you know when you are being taken? And by whom?
Obviously, people like Philpot and Lisée like to write political pot-boilers. It’s a living. But, more than that, they are an integral part of Power Corporation’s controlled opposition. They write controlled “history”. Using a small core of facts, they spin the interpretation to be the opposite of reality. The opposite of the obvious, and of common sense. And then the public buys it, and the media lackeys gobble it up and obediently regurgitate the nonsense to affirm it.
The Canadian government and the Quebec government sponsor them with taxpayers’ dollars. You are therefore paying these fellows to brainwash you for their own political ends. And they tell some truth, or else they couldn’t call it a “documentary”, or “non” fiction. But they can’t give the game away. So, pretending to be Quebec nationalist patriots, they denounce the real perpetrator of the sovereignty gambit, so that you won’t see Power Corporation pulling all the “separatist” strings.
<h2 style="text-align:center;padding-bottom:9px;padding-top:12px;""Canadian Unity" Goal A Fraud
The chief canard (as alluded to above) is the myth that Power Corporation and the Desmarais family are backers of “Canadian unity”. Adding the adjective “Canadian” to the noun “unity” (which really means the European system and hides intent to dismantle the Provinces, to transfer their powers to Soviet-style mega-cities), does not transform it into anything remotely “Canadian” (i.e., as in 1867).
For the globalists, “Canadian unity” is in reality (but not openly recognized by the press) a euphemism for re-federation of Canada on the model of the nation-states of the EEC-EU (EUSSR) on the way to merger of the world under a single imposed system. In other words, to get the European system done that they want, which merely represents a chunk of the new world-government system, Quebec has been hijacked by the Zionists and their corporate shills as a tool to restructure all of Canada. The false “patriation” of 1982 is a chunk of the new world “constitution” also being imposed. For more on Canada’s “False Patriation”, see “The Patriation and Legitimacy of the Canadian Constitution” (1982) in which author Barry Lee Strayer admits that the patriation was indeed illegal and a coup.
Indeed, the sole purpose of the “separatist” (Communist-led and corporate-fascist-backed) movement in Quebec under the aegis of Power Corporation with its cohort of Red Liberals and Socialist Rhodes Scholars, is to achieve re-federation using a Quebec UDI. This trigger to “negotiate” the re-federation between the Desmarais-controled federal and Quebec “governments” explains the false pretext of “saving” “Canadian unity”: while destroying your country, they want you to think they’re doing you a favor.
It should be noted, however, that Paul Desmarais is not the sole mover behind this agenda. Peter Nesbitt Thomson who was CEO of Power Corporation in 1964 (and possibly even after 1967), has given speeches including to The Empire Club (1964) which indicate that he, too, was pushing the restructuring of Canada… a restructuring apparently also wanted by the KGB (Golitsyn) and the Canadian Council of Chief Executives (CCCE) [originally the Business Council on National Issues] of which Power Corporation is a founding member.
Therefore, the people in control of Power Corporation prior to the Desmarais clan are of equal interest. In fact, at the time of the “secret committee” at Power in 1967, Peter Nesbitt Thomson was the controlling owner of Power Corporation; Desmarais was merely “on the point” of purchasing his control over Gesca (the newspaper line owned by Power); and would not purchase control of the rest of Power for another couple of years. Which suggests that the original controlling owners, their heirs and successors, may still be in the shadows of the Desmarais enterprise even today. So, if the Desmarais’ preference for the shadows ought to raise concern; of equal or more concern is the quite shadowy presence of Peter Nesbitt Thomson even before the arrival of the Desmarais.
For example, in February of 1964, Power Corp CEO Peter Nesbitt Thomson told The Empire Club that Canada should have a new constitution to accommodate Quebec’s (ethnic) aspirations. In October of 1964, Mrs. Windsor (Queen Elizabeth IInd) speaking from the precinct of the Quebec provincial Legislature, and seeming to echo Nesbitt Thomson, offered Quebec a new constitution. It might have been a generous token of concern were it not unconstitutional and solely aimed at getting the very same EUSSR restructuring done for the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Zionist bankers’ group based in London (UK) of which Mrs. Windsor is the (unconstitutionally) politically active and official “royal patron”. Ditto for her father before her.
But then, her grandfather, King George V, at the urging of banker Ernst Cassell, financed the London School of Economics (LSE) founded by the pro-Soviet Beatrice and Sydney Webb to train the permanent bureaucrats of the future socialist state (i.e. the state minus free enterprise and representative government). Jacques Parizeau was a graduate of the LSE. As are and have been scads of unelected officials in the Canadian governing structure for a very many decades. (We may one day have to call Mrs. Windsor “The Red Queen” for real.)
Below is my exclusive English translation of an extract from Philpot’s 2014 account of the “secret committee at Power“. The bold and underlines are mine, added to signal the special control and influence of Power Corporation, which hands out the “Rhodes Scholarships” for Quebec and controls Quebec and Canadian politics; and possibly other provinces as well. Rhodes Scholars have been at the helm of major destructive attacks on Canada, including the 1982 coup d’état presented as “patriation”; Trudeau’s War Measures in 1970; secularizing of Quebec’s constitutionally Catholic education system in 1965. Thus, they have worked to denationalize Canada and de-culture Quebec for globalism.
Quebec premier Robert Bourassa (War Measures), said by author Philpot to have practically formed a government merger with Desmarais while in power, was a Rhodes Scholar who advocated the European Union system for North America; the very same as advocated by René Lévesque and Jacques Parizeau to replace Confederation, i.e., “sovereignty association” (1980 referendum) and “sovereignty partnership” (new euphemism) (1995 referendum) both pursued by the Communist Parti Québécois “founded” by the “secret committee” of Red Liberals at Power. (It is said that Bourassa was unknown in Quebec 3 months before he became Premier. Also, Pierre Trudeau was unknown in Canada at large shortly before he became prime minister at the instance of Power Corporation, because the “secret committee” on which Trudeau sat in 1967, which produced the PARTI QUEBECOIS, also produced Trudeau’s election team, and Power Corporation financed Trudeau’s campaign.)
* Rhodes Scholars are a Zionist fifth column, indoctrinated and infiltrated into sensitive positions to destroy the nation-state, using the system devised by Cecil Rhodes, but taken over by the founders of Israel and the rag peddlers of world government.
