British Nut Cases: Top Tories attended ultra-secretive US neo-con event that displayed ‘sci-fi weapons’

Two top Tories have attended a secret conservative forum held on a luxury island in America’s deep south. Michael Gove and Sajid Javid revealed they had attended the clandestine conference on the latest Register of MPs’ Interests.

The three-day trip to the conference, held by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), cost the conservative MPs £1,922 (US$2,690) each. One of the main conference events was an “interactive” session on “Sci-Fi Weapons that actually exist today.”

The AEI is one of the biggest right-wing think tanks in the US, and is considered a secretive neo-conservative event as the normally publicity-seeking institute issues no press releases about the conference. It’s kept so hush-hush that in 2015, Bloomberg News complained that no one would even confirm whether or not it had snowed.

Gove and Javid, the only UK politicians at the event, both spoke at the conference. Under UK transparency laws, MPs have to register attendance in the Register of MPs’ Interests. They do not have to disclose the nature or content of conferences, although the full agenda and list of participants for the event was leaked and published in a report by Vice.

Those who attended the conference were roughly 250 multi-millionaire political donors. A $25,000 (£18,000) donation to the AEI buys you a ticket to the three-day conference, held at the “private, coastal Georgia resort island surrounded by five miles of private, pristine beach.”

Gove spoke on one conference panel entitled “The New Empire Builders: China, Iran, Russia.” He appeared alongside Gary Schmitt, who helped establish the Project for the New American Century, a neo-con group that successfully advocated for the war with Iraq prior to 2003.

According to the timetable that advertised Gove’s session, “now is the era of the rise of the revisionist powers – Once great empires, these nations are led by imperial nostalgics bent not simply on accumulating power and wealth for themselves but also in changing the balance of power.”

“Can they succeed?,” it added. “They already are.” Gove also spoke on a panel called “Is Democracy in Crisis?” alongside former US presidential candidate Ted Cruz.

Javid, the secretary of state for communities and local government, joined a panel discussing whether or not last year was “the best year in human history”. He shared the panel with Frederick Kagan, another figure from the Project for the New American Century; Glen Hubbard, chief economic adviser to President George Bush before the 2008 market crash; and Elliott Abrams, who was convicted over his involvement in the ‘Iran Contra’ scandal of the 1980s – when senior administration officials in the Reagan era secretly facilitated the sale of weapons to Iran, which was under an arms embargo. The money from those sales was used to arm the right-wing human rights-violating Contra fighters, in their battle against the Nicaraguan government.

The secretive conference’s pièce de résistance was the session “Sci-Fi Weapons that actually exist today.” Billionaires and politicians alike were privy to a “show-and-tell session that your second-grade teacher could never have imagined,” read the event program.

Participants also got to “fly” a warplane – presumably to see how it could bomb their enemies… like Iran or Russia.

“Participants will gain hands-on experience with some of the newest defense technology, including the opportunity to test out Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jet simulator and learn how to fly one of the most advanced planes in the US Military. Experts from Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Raytheon will be available to answer questions and run the demonstrations,” the program said.

  1. And when the announcer guy said… Now here you’ll see the “Sci-Fi Weapons that actually exist today.”… .and immediately later when the curtains will open the announcer guy said… Ladies and gentlemen, sit back now and get ready to know the… Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jet simulator !!!!…. after that moment some folks have started laughing harder and a few they had a heart attack….

  2. OMIGOSH the dumb-ass folk vortex just hiccuped and these cow pokes emerged. Give them all a SLOW COW Mind Cooler . . . their little brains might just implode with all their sci-fi, shoot ’em up stuff.

    It’s clear that this event has gotten the Bibi Schmeckle Sucking count up, I see. Keep the phallic worship / warship alive! We all know that the Khazars were a phallic worshiping tribe. They had phallic amulets for the war effort! The men in the south have no idea what spawned Israhell, or how it became the afterbirth of a nation. The death of millions in WWI and WWII . . . . . . . . Japan, Korea, Germany, England, U.S., France . . . . and then on to Vietnam . . . and then on to Iraq (twice) and Afghanistan and Libya . . . . . . . and they Still. Want. More. Death?

    The “secret” retreat is nothing more than a who’s who of war profiteers who want to sell their military gear so badly . . . they can not wait until more ancient civilizations are gutted.

    “Billionaires and politicians alike were privy to a “show-and-tell session that your second-grade teacher could never have imagined,” read the event program.”

    And they have to mention, in their event program, that it’s their second-grade teacher . . . because most of these dullards have been in arrested development at the second grade level. So that makes sense.

    Gosh, think if they would have written “. . . show and tell session that your Post-doctoral professor in Algebraic Torus Action, Geometry and Combinatorics could never have imagined,” it would throw their little pea brains off a notch.

    Post-doctoral . . . . . . huh ?!?!? (scratches scrotum)

    SECOND-GRADE TEACHER?!?!?!?!? OMIGOSH. That’s hilarious.
    Think about how freedumb loving these fvckers are.
    Freedumb for all!
    As long as we can blow it up . . . and it goes BOOM and makes a big noise!

    Second-grade teachers could never have imagined . . . YEAH, because in second-grade there’s a very low entrance level to SCIENCE . . . let alone “sci-fi”
    The student body is SEVEN, for the love of all that’s holy. Their teacher isn’t going to have to imagine much for those little darlings.

    Let’s ride to rocket to moon kids . . . Gee Miss Spinolio, can we?

    • * “Let’s ride a rocket to the moon kids!”

      Gee Miss Spinolio, can we?

      “I don’t know if you can, but you may!
      But first, children, I have a weekend home assignment for you.”

      “OHHHHHHHHHHH . . . ”

      “I want you to watch Dr. Strangelove. It’s a sci-fi movie, which I could never have imagined. And yes, I realize this may be an improper subjunctive. But, you’re only seven. What do you know?”

      OMIGOSH I love the second grade!

      And how many First Lady’s did they fly in for the . . . hmmmmmmm . . . event?

      Oh please. As if these retreats don’t make women a’la our Madam, First Lady types crawl out from the WORMWOOD?!?

      What goes on in Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jet simulators, stays in Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jet simulators — if you know what I mean {wink, wink}

      Testosterone for all!

  3. A duo of delusions.
    LMGAO . . . feel the warm embrace of freedom and liberty in Israhell, as a Muslim?!?
    Probably the same warm embrace that George Wallace had for the Negros living in his state during his reign.
    Probably the same freedom and liberty as well. Sajid’s pride with being born Muslim would soon turn to prejudice living in Israhell. I suggest he do just that . . . enroll his little darlings in school, have them forced into indoctrination, and say good-bye to your “Muslim” pride. They’ll love to turn his little darlings into Zionists. Re-edu-ma-cation for all!

  4. Some of those weapons I recognized as being used in the movie “Earth Vs The Flying Saucers”.
    Photon torpedoes?
    “All this talk about the Force is a bunch of hokum, just give me a good blaster any day”. Han Solo
    “Earthlings, this is your last chance, return my child’s toys and you will be spared. Otherwise I shall be forced to use my Zenon ray on the lot of you. And you do not want to see what happens to you then.”
    “Spock, I thought I told you not to leave anything behind. These ancient earthlings are crude, violent, psychotic, paranoid and schizophrenic. Not to mention greedy bastards and with no moral compass. They more closely resemble Klingnons than anything else.”
    Were those attendees really human or were they Cylons?
    News item: Robbie the Robot has been brought back into service, to provide a never ending supply of pee for the Donald.

  5. Ted Cruz speaking about whether “Democracy” is in crisis surely cements the Head Stone into place to confirm the fact that Democracy Has Died and is buried, RIP Democracy. The mere fact that UK Members of Parliament feel free to attend an event with such disreputable company and that one must read about that in VT, but not the CCMMM, further reinforces that fact. Truth is Dead and Buried too.

    • Ted Cruz wouldn’t know democracy from a fraternity party. Not to mention belonging to a backwoods religious cult.

  6. Sounds very much like a security breech from a military perspective. Are we now inviting rich donors and foreign politicians to vacation spots for show and tell using our military hardware ?
    Kinda dwarfs facebook posts, pipeline protests, and anything Manning released.

    Maybe when the Diamond and Silk senate hearing is over, they should inquire about the attendance and hardware of this 5 miles of pristine Breech.
