CODEX ALIMENTARIUS: EU kills illegal Sausage!

P8240181

P8240178This Spanish sausage – the Chistorra – which is very delicious, will be illegal from next year because of the new EU laws on food known as the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS.

I have never really tought about the consequences of this new series of  laws, but products like this will actualy not be sold any more, due to bacteria and disease risk.  Andréj here also confirms that the polish specialty made of conserved cucumbers in vineager already is made illegal in EU, but might be obtained from the back if you know what to ask for.  The original recipe is substituted with an new artificial type, and the new product is largely available in shops.

What this actualy means, and what is often said about CODEX ALIMENTARIUS, is that it will actualy forbid natural or “normal” food and promote GMO food and artificials, wich really gives you tumors and all kind of health problems.  This is sick.  It´s infact so sick that I do not think this law will be able to be practiced or put into order!  But we might have to react – just a little bit.  (Some even say Leiv Vidar is behind the whole conspiracy!)

Health tip: Build up your imune-system by getting your natural vitamins, enzymes and minerals (amongst the treats and addictions) and you´ll handle some dirt in your food.  But Artificial stuff are something else, so stay away from that as much as you can!

North American Terror Organization – fra tungtvann til Orderud

CON har mottatt en “halvferdig sak” fra en anonym journalist om: NATOs rolle innen narkotika og våpenhandel, bakmenn i Norge og USA, transport, UD-innblanding og Orderud-saken.

Her er det mye å ta av om du vil gjøre litt research selv! Men vær oppmerksom: – Mange som har berørt Orderud-saken har endt opp med hjerneblødning. Har du sett “The Wire” sesong 2 vet du allerede en god del.

Besøk websiden til produsentene bak intervjuet med Kay Griggs.

Dette dokumentet er basert på et videointervju med Kay Griggs fra 1998, samt videre research ut ifra informasjonen som kommer frem i intervjuet. Kay Griggs var ansatt ved kabinettet i det hvite hus i Washington, hvor hennes jobb var å ta imot en rekke inflytelsesrike personer. Hun var gift med George Griggs, som var chief of staff i US Marines og skal ha jobbet med “psychological profiling” og trening av “assassins” for NATO.

I intervjuet forteller Kay om NATOs lyssky aktiviteter, og hevder at de styrer en global våpen- og narkotikahandel gjennom samarbeid med mafia og marine. Hun hevder også at NATO trener opp folk til å ta livet av alle som står i veien for dette, og nevner en rekke tilfeller hvor dette har skjedd. Hun er langt i fra sparsom med navn og referanser. Hun forteller også om flere besøk i Norge, og norske personer hun og andre har hatt kontakt med. Etter å ha samlet informasjonen som er relatert til Norge, dobeltsjekket dette og gjort noe videre research, begynner det å danne seg et bilde som kan ha relevans i forhold til Orderud-drapene. Intervjuet er gjort året før, altså samme år som de to attentatforsøkene mot Anne Orderud Paust.

Kay og George Griggs hadde et møte i den norske ambassaden i Washington med den norske ambassadøren Kjeld Vibe, Intelligence operative Bill Nelson og hans kone Kate, i august 1995. De skal ha planlagt et besøk til Norge, i hvilken anledning nevnes ikke. Per Paust jobbet også ved ambassaden (helt siden 1988), og man kan vel si at det er sannsynlig at han hadde god kjennskap til sakene som ble diskutert.

Det norske kongeparet besøkte Northfolk Virginia, og Virgina Beach, i oktober 1995 i forbindelse med norsk deltakelse i NATO.

Dette var samme måned som Nobelkomitéens formann, professor Francis Sejersted kunngjorde “den overraskende avgjørelsen” om at Nobels fredspris skulle gå til Joseph Rotblat og Pugwash-bevegelsen, “for deres arbeide for å redusere kjernevåpnenes plass i internasjonal politikk og på lengre sikt å avskaffe slike våpen” (se Aftenposten). Sejersted gjorde også et(nytt framstøt mot NATO i 1999 se Dagbladet.

I følge Kongehuset var kongeparet i USA 30 – 31 Oktober 1995 hos HE President William J. Clinton and Hilary Clinton. Men i følge den norske ambassaden i Washingtons nyhetsarkiv varte oppholdet i tre uker. Jeg vil komme tilbake med flere detaljer om besøket senere.

— Kay Griggs forteller at Knut Eigum er en kompis av hennes mann George Griggs. Hun forteller at de gjorde de våpenhandel under bordet i Moss i 1995, i samarbeid med flere ansatte i det norske utenriksdepartementet. Eigum skal ha opptrådt som kontaktperson for narko-kongene i Norge. I forbindelse med møtet i Moss, nevner Key Griggs også “the majors husband”, jeg har ennå ikke stadfestet hvem dette er.

Knut Eigum er Fengselsdirektør på Ullersmo, har eiendom på Kolsås v. NATO-basen, og i Narvik v. et annet NATO-anlegg. Han har også skrevet et dokument som ligger i statsarkivenes militære arkiver, se “Eigum, Knut: Norske sanitetsavdelinger i internasjonal tjeneste, 1:2001

Om det stemmer at representanter fra UD er involvert i intenasjonal narko-handel, og Knut Eigum er deres kontaktperson for videre omsetning, er dette virkelig en genistrek. Denne forbindelsen innebærer flere ekstremt gunstige forutsetninger for dem:

– I kraft av Eigums stilling som direktør for det fengselet som huser i Norges tyngste kriminelle, har de direkte kontakt med de største narko-handlerne i Norge på en naturlig måte som ikke vekker oppsikt.

– Samtidig kan de, igjen i kraft av Eigums stilling, kontrolere sine konkurrenter og bestemme hvem som skal få drive salg av narkotika, i hvert fall i øverste sjiktet, i Norge.

– De kan bruke kriminelle til å utføre andre oppdrag i denne forbindelse. Blant annet var det en sak på dagbladet.no den 31. Mars 2009, som ble fjernet i løpet av et døgn, hvor det stod om en PFU-sak. Fangene Trond Erik Henriksen og Morten Flaskerud stod oppført som klager, men på flere punkter virket det som om det i realiteten var Eigum som hadde klaget inn saken. Saken dreide seg om at de to fangene hadde rømt fra den rømningssikre bunkersen og spredt amfetamin med rottegift, som hadde gitt tre personer lifstruende forgiftning. Om det er hold i Kay Griggs’ påstand, og at bunkersen var rømningssikker, og mine videre slutninger, mistenker jeg at saken ble fjernet fordi informasjonen var lite gunstig for Knut Eigum. Kan det har vært et bestillingsoppdrag? Se PFU-sak 91-136.

– Det er sannsynlig at det er flere sammensvorne i fengselsvesenet og politiet. Spesielt interessant synes jeg det er med politiets vellykkede initiativ mot organisert kriminalitet i det pakistanske miljøet, hvor de har to biler som har fulgt disse personene overalt i to og et halvt år.

— Key Griggs sier at “all” narkotrafikk går via Keflavik. Reykjavik er også et sentrum for nordisk samarbeid innen politikk, hvor mange i utenrikspolitisk tjeneste møtes.

— T. Parker Host var sjefen til George Griggs i US Marine, i følge Kay Griggs.

“T. Parker Host of Maryland inc.” gjorde en deal i 2005 med Harry Hussein fra Baltimore Group/HUAL(Höegh Autoliners), som har hovedkontor i Oslo. Ut i fra bildene nedenfor kan man identifisere Harry Hussain på bildene som Kay Griggs viser fram i intervjuet fra besøkene i Norge. Det betyr at Harry Hussain var en av de som George og Kay Griggs og T. Parker Host også var sammen med i Norge i 1995.

Litt om bakgrunnen til Leif Høegh (1896-1974):

Educated a political economist at the age of 20, Leif Høegh came to be employed in shipping. After shipping practice both in the USA and Norway, he started his own company in 1927, at the age of 31, and emerged as an entrepreneur in oil transportation. He earned his fortune from tankers on long-term charter-parties and turned to liner shipping in order to spread his financial exposure.

In addition to leading his company into a prominent position, Leif Høegh also took an active part in international shipping politics after the Second World War. His main interest was primarily aimed at macro- economics and politics, as well as international trade and finance, which were interpreted into his own company strategy. His personal interest in literature and theatre also led him into the board of the National Theatre in Oslo, a position he served for many years. Leif Höegh was characterized by entrepreneurial determination and a tremendous working capacity, coupled with an ability to delegate authority. He lived to see the transformation of his company from an entrepreneurial enterprise into an organization headed by a professional management team under the leadership of his sons. By his death in 1974, Leif Höegh & Co ranked as one of the largest privately owned shipping companies in Europe.

Höegh pioneered the transportation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) when contracting the world’s first LNG carrier with special tanks (the Moss type) delivered to the company in 1973.

Litt om bakgrunnen til Harry Husein:

General Manager Baltimore, HUAL North America Headquarters in Oslo

Originally from England, moved to Baltimore in 1994 as General Manager for NYK-NOS shipping. Joined HUAL as General Manager in January 2000.  Under the leadership of Harry Hussein and his Baltimore team, HUAL has recorded a four-fold increase in total cargo shipped from Baltimore (drug city) in the past 4 years. In the last year alone, HUAL vessels called on the Port of Baltimore more than seven times a month.  HUAL’s key destination markets out of the Port of Baltimore include Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Africa, Europe, Japan, and Korea. In the future, Hussein sees strong growth potential in Iraq, Australia, Russia, and Africa. HUAL recently started a direct service from the U.S. to West Africa and South Africa – two locations that had little major vessel activity prior to HUAL.

Hussein is a graduate of Redbridge Technical College in Romford, England. For over ten years, he has been proud to call Maryland home, and now resides in Lutherville with his wife of 20 years and two children.Hussein is active in the Traffic and Propeller Clubs, as well as in the Private Sector Port Coalition.He very much looks forward to full U.S. citizenship approval this year.

2005.

HUAL Baltimore has a staff of six persons, including in addition to Harry Hussein, Tom Witkowski (Operations Manager), John (JJ) Malone (Port Captain), Mary Susan Schofield (Office Manager and Logistics Manager) Debbie Humphreys (Logistics Manager) and Eileen Beard (Customer Service Representative.)

Harry Hussain tjente på 11. September-skandalen:

12/9 2001: Hussein said the tragedy, which has shut down New York for the foreseeable future, may ultimately contain a silver lining for Maryland’s transportation industry. “Maryland is going to get more freight through here than they would have done”

Fra Maryland Daily Record.

Harry Hussain var General Manager for NYK-NOS shipping i 1994.

Foreløpig har jeg ikke fått en klar forståelse om NYK-NOS, men det kan stå for “Nippon Yusen Kaisha – National Ocean Service”, og kan være forbundet med Wilh. Wilhelmsen / Wallenius Wilhelmsen. (fin presentasjon av Wallenius-båt fra YouTube)

Dette er litt forvirrende. Det virker som om NYK er en båt-linje og NOS er en del av NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), som igjen ligger under Department of Commerce.

Her ligger det en svært interessant juridisk sak om NOS som kan trenge grundigere gjennomgang: http://cases.justia.com/us-court-of-appeals/F2/954/994/128352/.

Denne saken kan vitne om lyssky aktivitet, da Department of Commerce har nektet å gi informasjon om ansatte til arbeidsorganisasjonen. Federal Labor Relations Authority mener dette er lovstridig, men flere statlige institusjoner har tydeligvis en sterk interesse av å holde på dette. Må se nærmere på.

Hvem andre hadde Harry Hussain kontakt med i sitt arbeid i Leif Høegh og NYK-NOS? Kan man finne forbindelser med UD-ansatte? Er det noen mulig kobling mellom Høegh og Per Pausts arbeid med NORTRA og Norges Eksportråd i 1994?

— Key Griggs sier at hun har møtt Charlie Wilhelm i Norge. Han er general i Miami og er gift med Valerie Wilhelm.

— NYK-NOS, som Harry Hussain ledet i 1994, er også forbundet med Miami.

1998:  Attentatforsøk mot Anne Orderud Paust.

én av politiets fire teorier:

Den politiske teorien: Kan ekteparets relativt sentrale stillinger i henholdsvis Forsvarsdepartementet og Utenriksdepartementet ha utløst et attentat, eventuelt fra utlandet?

Hun jobbet først i UD, som sekretær for NATO-ambassadørene i Brüssel, deretter som personlig sekretær for forsvarsministrene Johan Jørgen Holst, Per Ditlev-Simonsen, Jørgen Kosmo og Dag Jostein Fjærvoll.

I januar 1999 flyttet hun hjem fra New York.

Per Paust jobbet i UD fra 1974, først i Indonesia (hvor Kay Griggs nevner at noen av NATOs mest aktive treningsleire for såkaldte “wet-ops” ligger). I 1987 var Per Paust innblandet i en sak om eksport av tungtvann til Frankrike, som ble brukt til produksjon av atomvåpen (se mer nedenfor). Fra 1988 satt han to perioder som ambassaderåd ved ambassaden i Washington, og han har hatt en lengre periode i UDs politiske avdeling med øst-vest-spørsmål som arbeidsområde. 1998 var han generalkonsul i New York, og i 1994 ledet han et prosjekt for profilering av Norge i utlandet i samarbeid med NORTRA og Norges Eksportråd. I 1999 UDs avdeling for sikkerhet og nedrustning(husk nobelsprisen i 95).

Se TV2 Konsesjon.

Om Per Paust og Frankrikes produksjon av hydrogenbomber:

France had imported more than 140t from Norway by the time the Celestin reactors started. Norway got neither inspection rights nor, ac-cording to Per Paust, a spokesman for the Norwegian foreign ministry, an overall pledge of peaceful use. Thus Norway committed a deliberate act of proliferation.

This was a departure from Norway’s stated policy of always requiring peaceful-use guarantees for its heavy water exports. Paust said that instead, France promised not to re-export the heavy water without Norwegian permission and gave Norway a string of certificates stating the “end use” of each shipment. Norway now says that it can restrict France to the uses listed in the certificates. However, as this article went to press, Norway declined to reveal what the certificates require. Do they prohibit use in building nuclear weapons? France, too, when asked in September 1987 about the lack of French heavy water to run the Celestin reactors, refused to comment. Thus the questions remain, Did Nor-way deliberately help France make H-bombs, or did France break a series of promises that Norway has not bothered to enforce?

Litt om bakgrunnen til Kjeld Vibe.

Kjeld Vibe, født 5. oktober 1927, fødested Stavanger, stammer fra dansk-norsk adelsslekt med bånd til kongehuset(http://www.snl.no/Vibe), norsk diplomat, cand.jur., i utenrikstjenesten fra 1955. Han ble ambassaderåd i Washington 1965, underdirektør politisk avdeling i UD 1969, ekspedisjonssjef der i 1972. Ambassadør ved delegasjonen til NATO i Brussel 1977–84 (var dette før Anne Orderud Paust jobbet der?). 1984–89 utenriksråd, 1989–96 ambassadør i Washington. (altså fra 89-? sammen med Per Paust). Fra 1996 (13.oktober – ?) satt Vibe i Ytringsfrihetskommisjonen, sammen med bl.a. Jon Bing (med verdens drøyeste cv) og Norsk Journalistlags leder Diis Bøhn. Om Kjeld Vibe fortsatt lever, hvor er han nå?

Alder: 82

Mobiltelefon: 417 43 866

1973: Lillehammer-saken.

Kjeld Vibe involvert i Lillehammer-saken, med Israels ambassadør, attache Yigal Eyal og Mossad. Eyal var sikkerhetsoffiser ved den israelske ambassaden, og bodde i Tuengen Allé 14 C. Om Mossad-agenten Dan Ærbel fremkom at han etter en henvendelse fra Israel i 1968 hadde solgt en båt ved navn «Scheerburg» som var eid av selskapet Biscayne Tradin og kontrollert av Mossad.

Se “Den utenrikspolitiske behandlingen av Lillehammer-saken” NOU 2000:6.

Som ekspedisjonssjef i Utenriksdepartementets politiske avdeling (fra 1972-?), har Kjeld Vibe bekreftet at de vurderte å sende en tilråding til Justisdep. Om at saken burde gå for lukkede dører. Han fikk på pukkelen av Kristin Halvorsen, da hun i et brev til statsministeren den 20.10.98(!) mente det var et grovt brudd på viktige rettsprinsipper at en representant fra regjeringen tok direkte kontakt med aktoratet i en alvorlig drapssak mens det går i retten.

Se forøvrig dokument: “132.LH-utvalget, perm 4, jnr.17, intervju den 21.6.99 med Kjeld Vibe” NOU2000:6, “Omstendigheter rundt drapet på Ahmed Bouchikhi”

1992: “Scandinavian Star”-ulykken

Kjeld Vibe var også innblandet i saken om Scandinavian Star i 1992, “ingen” vet hvem som eide båten. Se “Støttegruppen for etterlatte og overlevende etter «ulykken» med Scandinavian Star“.

1999: NATO-bombing av Yugolslavia

This week marks the 10 year anniversary of the 1999 NATO bombings of Yugoslavia, during which hundreds of civilians were killed. Many civilian facilities, including infrastructure, utility companies, and hospitals were actually targeted by NATO’s air strike, which lasted about 3 months. NATO conducted the campaign as a way to combat what was perceived as genocide in the region, but that interpretation of what was going on is just that – one interpretation. Additionally, NATO’s backing by the UN was in question as well, but that didn’t stop them either. So the question is, did NATO have a right to go into Yugoslavia and conduct these air raids that resulted in the loss of hundreds of innocent lives? Does an organization ever have the right to do that? (dette var i mars 1999, få uker før orderud-drapene, Anne jobbet for NATO, Kjeld Vibe var spesielt opptatt av Yugoslavia-situasjonen, Per Paust jobbet for Kjeld Vibe).

1995:

I mitt forsøk på å finne ut mer om hva som skjedde ved den norske ambassaden i Washington i 1995, og hvem andre som jobbet der, klarte jeg å finne fram til denne nettadressen gjennom logisk gjetting: Norway.org (Norges Ambassade i USA).

Nedenfor følger en rekke saksing fra de underliggende sidene:

50th anniversary of the United Nations, whose first Secretary General, Trygve Lie, was Norwegian.

Inspired by the upcoming anniversary, UN officials along with diplomats, cabinet members, parliament members and concerned citizens all over the world are engaged in an intense debate. They are trying to clarify what lessons to draw from the past and how to adapt the UN to new realities of the post cold-war era.

Too many people live in poverty, and too few are able to fulfill the dream of living in a democratic society where basic human rights are respected. Even in peaceful corners of the world, a sense of safety and security is threatened by terrorism, ethnic conflicts, drug trafficking and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

Tretti gardister var med den norske delegasjonen til USA i oktober 1995. Dette tyder på at det var et følge av en betydelig størrelse på denne reisen. Det er interessant å tenke på hvem andre som var med. Kay Griggs sier at George Griggs og T. Parker Host møtte kongeparet og andre personer som fulgte dem. Kan det ha vært representanter fra UD og/eller andre? andre som kan vite noe?

Andre som møtte kongeparet: Tipper Gore , the wife of the Vice President Al Gore (bonded with Sonja, for their common interest in photography), Wilhelmina Holladay, founder and chairperson of the board of National Museum of Women in the Arts.

ANOTHER STEP TOWARDS MIDDLE EAST PEACE

The signing at the White House of the Interim Agreement between Israel and the PLO on September 28 marked another milestone on the road toward a peaceful settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Witnessing this historic event with President Clinton, Jordan’s King Hussein and President Mubarak of Egypt was Norwegian Foreign Minister Bjørn Tore Godal, who had a prominent seat and signed the document as a witness. His presence was a telling illustration of Norway’s active, central role in the Middle East peace process in recent years.

Other main points include provisions for holding elections for an 82-seat Palestinian Council; legal provisions for cooperation in combating crime, drug trafficking and terrorism; and provisions for the release of a significant number of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli custody.

Norway feels a natural obligation to continue supporting the peace process and implementation of the Interim Agreement. The Norwegian budget proposal for 1996 includes a total of $53 million for assistance to the Palestinians. Norway continues to chair the committee that coordinates international assistance to the Palestinians, the Ad-Hoc Liaison Committee, and is leading the donor effort to assist the Palestinian police.

The Interim Agreement also includes a special “People-to-People” program, which aims to enhance levels of knowledge and foster understanding between the Palestinian and Israeli peoples. In the light of Norway’s special role and close relationship with both parties, Norway has been asked to initiate and lead such a program.

Royal Christmas Greetings to Norwegian America

As we think back on our visit to the United States this fall, it gives us great pleasure to send our best holiday greetings.

Many personal ties have built strong bonds between Norway and the United States. At the same time the two countries are tied together at the most basic levels by history and constitution.

They are founded on shared interests — as witnessed by the fact that Norway and the United States are co-founders of UN and NATO and by the ongoing strategic relationship between our two nations.

Kjeld Vibes avskjeds-melding:

Thank You for Interesting Years and Fascinating Friendships

After seven years as Norway’s Ambassador to the United States, Kjeld Vibe will soon head back to Oslo with his wife Beate.

News of Norway, issue 3, 1996

A diplomat for 42 years, Ambassador Vibe has held many posts with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, including general director for political affairs and secretary general. He was ambassador to NATO in Brussels for seven years. He also served as political counselor in Washington from 1965 to 1969.

Ms. Vibe also has been active in Washington, as she worked with Arena Stage Theater, Very Special Arts, CARE and the YWCA while keeping a busy schedule as the wife of a popular ambassador. A scholar in her own right, she is translating the essays of the 16th-century French philosopher Michel de Montaigne into Norwegian, and the first volume of essays will be published this spring.

As I shall soon be leaving my post as Ambassador to the United States, News of Norway has asked me to offer some reflections on the seven very rewarding years which my wife and I have spent here in Washington, D.C.

Together with the four years we and our four children spent here in the late 1960s when I was counselor at our Embassy, this adds up to some eleven years in your nation’s capital. These years have not yet turned us into Norwegian-Americans, but they have made us very fond of this country and they have deepened our understanding, respect and admiration for the creativity of this great nation.

We also leave this country convinced of how essential it is-both for this nation itself and for peace and stability in the world-that the United States, in consultation and cooperation with other nations, continues to provide leadership in the world. It must not retreat into introversion and isolationism.

During the past seven years, the world has-for better or worse-seen many dramatic events, among them the fall of the Berlin Wall, the reunification of Germany, the dissolution of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia (with several ensuing conflicts) (interessant at han fremhever dette, har han et spesielt forhold til implikasjoner ifht. Yugoslavia?) and the Gulf War. It has, indeed, been fascinating to watch these events unfold from the vantage point of the world’s political center of gravity.

The same holds true for the many important changes that have taken place here on the domestic front, and which we all, Americans and Norwegians alike, follow with close attention.

Needless to say, it has been rewarding and stimulating to represent our country here in the United States, which remains Norway’s most important friend and ally and in which our country enjoys so much good will. And I am happy to report to you that relations between our two countries are in very good shape.

In almost all fields of human endeavor, our nations are working together closely, be it bilaterally or multilaterally in international organizations such as the United Nations and NATO, to help build a more peaceful, secure and prosperous world. Our cooperation in peacekeeping is particularly close in the Middle East and the former Yugoslavia. Our cooperative links are also close in the areas of trade, energy and protecting the environment.

The United States and Norway share a common goal to help strengthen reformist trends in Russia by trying to involve that nation to the greatest extent possible in western cooperative structures. Together, we are also working closely with the Russian government to reduce the danger of nuclear contamination in northwest Russia (Det er vel AMEC han sikter til?)

Our seven years in the United States have been marked by sustained efforts on the part of our government and the Embassy to make Norway better known in the United States. We appreciate being regarded not only as the land of the fjords and the “lefse and lutefisk,” but above all as a reliable international partner with a rich culture and valuable lifestyle, a sophisticated high-tech economy, an active environmental policy and a social conscience which reaches beyond our own borders.

In many of these efforts, Norwegian-American organizations and communities across this vast continent have been of great help and we are immensely grateful to them.

Among the cultural highlights of our sojourn here, I would like to recall the great commemoration in 1991, in the presence of Her Majesty Queen Sonja (unregistered at the royal webpage?), of the millennium of the Norsemen’s first landing in America.Let me also mention the celebration of the 150th anniversary of Edvard Grieg’s birth in 1993, with some 150 concerts all over the United States. The same year also saw a major presentation, again in the presence of Queen Sonja(unregistered at the royal webpage, if it was not in oct. 95), of Norwegian culture in Atlanta within the framework of a cooperative venture between the two Olympic cities of Lillehammer and Atlanta.

Needless to say, the very successful 1994 Winter Olympic Games at Lillehammer provided what may be the most extensive and positive public relations response that Norway has ever seen in the United States.

That winter festival was followed by another great event, the long awaited visit to the United States of Their Majesties the King and Queen of Norway. Staying at the White House, King Harald and Queen Sonja (hvem var med dem?) met with President Clinton and the First Lady and many other prominent people (hvem andre enn George Griggs, Kay Griggs og T. Parker Host? Kanskje Intelligence operative Bill Nelson og hans kone Kate, Harry Hussain, Per Paust? Hvem fler?) in the administration, the Congress, academia, the arts and the media. Following a tradition established by the late King Olav, Their Majesties then made an extensive three-week tour from coast to coast, visiting a large number of Norwegian-American communities.

Their Majesties’ visit coincided with the most comprehensive presentation of Nor-wegian culture ever exhibited in the United States under the heading “Norwegian Visions.” Here in Washington, the highlight of the program was the exhibition of Norwegian women painters and many accompanying activities at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Their Majesties’ visit included a series of business seminars aimed at further stimulating economic ties between Norway and the United States. In addition, they followed up on the many seminars and conferences arranged every year by the Norwegian Trade Council and the Norwegian-American Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the Norwegian Foreign Service(hvem var med fra disse?).

Let me remind you that beyond these special efforts, relations between our two countries are strengthened every year by visits of our Prime Minister and the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Defense, Commerce and other government officials in addition to frequent delegations from our Parliament, the Storting. All these regular contacts help to consolidate what deserves to be called the special relationship between Norway and the United States.

Before leaving Washington, I wanted to give you this rough overview of what has been going on between us over the last seven years and of the state of affairs between our two countries.

I think there is every reason to believe that the close and trusting relationship between our two countries will continue to thrive and prosper. We have so much in common: above all, a common cultural heritage, a strong belief in democracy and a dedication to freedom. We also share a strong sense of international responsibility and our views are very close on most of the fundamental challenges facing the world today.

On this optimistic note, my wife and I bid you farewell, extending our best wishes to all the readers of News of Norway, and we thank you for your continuing interest for Norway.

The Norwegian Trade Council (NTC) in North America

The first NTC office in North America was established in New York in 1946 (året etter WW2). Today, there are additional offices in Washington, Houston, San Francisco (samme steder som de norske konsulatene) and Toronto. NTC has 37 offices worldwide and about 300 staffers, half of them at headquarters in Oslo.

NTC is closely affiliated with the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the NTC offices around the world serve as the local commercial sections of embassies and consulates. In Washington, San Francisco and Houston, our offices are on the diplomatic premises, and our operations are part of embassy and consulate functions. This official status provides an effective tool in marketing work, as some types of information are more accessible for a government organization than for a private company.

NTC in North America also enjoys close cooperation with other Norwegian organizations here such as the Norwegian Chamber of Commerce, Norwegian Seafood Export Council, and Norwegian Tourist Board (Altså NORTRA, hvor Per Paust jobbet I 1994, han er også assosiert med en publikasjon herfra i 1991).

Marketing Services

Making market studies and finding distributors for Norwegian companies, as in the case of Nordisk Terapi, are the most requested services. NTC offers many additional services such as competitor surveillance, trade show assistance, subsidiary start-up support, product testing, and focus groups.

As a result of NTC’s research and support, Nordisk Terapi successfully found a distributor for their innovative physical therapy product. Fred Sammons, Inc., a unit of the large Bissel Health Care company, signed a distributor agreement early this year and has already purchased 450 units, according to Petra C. Kopf, NTC’s New York marketing director. The distributor extended their operations to Canada and purchased another 200 TerapiMasters.

A typical NTC project may be initialed by a company contacting us directly, or NTC may contact a company to suggest a business opportunity. NTC and the company will discuss objectives and the scope of the project before a formal proposal is sent to the company. The proposal will contain a description of the project and the type of information NTC will provide, as well as the time frame and budget. The project will start when the company and NTC have agreed on how the project will be carried out, the time frame and the associated expenses.

Norwegian consumer products, like sweaters and other sports apparel got a boost last year from the unprecedented interest created by the Lillehammer Olympics. But not only traditional “Norwegian” consumer products like textiles will sell in the United States, says Lin Eide, market analyst at the New York office. Eide has just finished finding a distributor for greeting cards, appealing items produced by a small publisher in Norway.

The World Bank and the United Nations

The NTC office in Washington, headed by Marianne Damhaug, is primarily involved in projects financed by the World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank. Damhaug and her staff provide information and assistance to Norwegian companies involved in the international development market. Most of these companies have an agreement with the office, thus financing part of its activities. “The very encouraging results for 1994, when Norwegian companies’ projected sales to the World Bank increased from $2.4 million to $209 million, indicate that a model of providing customized services to a smaller group of companies works very well, “says Damhaug.

NTC in New York is responsible for marketing Norwegian products and services to United Nations agencies, by introducing projects to procurement agencies, providing project information, follow-up ongoing projects, and organizing presentations and seminars about other activities. Presently the most interesting opportunities exist within UN peace-keeping operations. With the assistance of NTC, Norwegian companies today are supplying products and services like accommodation units, water purification and water distribution systems, telecommunication equipment, and air and sea freight services to UN peace-keeping operations around the world.

New NTC Initiatives

Magne Ostby heads the New York office, largest of the NTC offices in North America with a staff of eight. Ostby is also responsible for regional coordination of NTC activities in North America.

According to Ostby, NTC North America’s main focus will continue to be on individual projects for Norwegian companies. “In 1995 we will also undertake several new initiatives. We will look closer into the area of military offset agreements to see how these agreements can be used to create business opportunities for Norwegian companies,” says Ostby. Other planned activities include: environmental initiatives, furniture initiatives, UN presentations, and marketing activities in connection with trade shows. NTC will also be involved in the Royal Visit in October this year.

The future NTC

NTC recently went through a challenging transition because our most important source of financing, the export levy, was removed as part of Norway’s adaption to the European Union’s rules on export subsidies. As a result, NTC had to undertake major adjustments, as well as substantially increase the organization’s self-generated income from consulting services, publication sales, organization of trade shows, and courses organized by NTC’s School of Exports.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Confederation of Trade and Industry (NHO) have now established the Export Fund to secure the financial base of NTC. On June 13, the NTC board appointed Per Andreas Vogt director general. Vogt had been general manager of the Internal Services Group and the Real Estate Department at the Den norske Bank. The new board of directors, appointed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, will be chaired by Gerhard Heiberg, formerly chairman of the Lillehammer Olympic Committee.

The Royal Norwegian Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Opprettet i 1905.

Allies ever since, the two nations fought together in World War II and were co-founders of both the United Nations and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Today, the Embassy in Washington is Norway’s largest, with a staff of around 50, including representatives from a number of Norwegian ministries.

Office of the Defense Attaché

The Defense Attaché covers U.S. and Canadian defense issues of interest to Norway. The Defense Attaché also keeps the U.S. and Canadian defense authorities updated on Norwegian defense matters and policies. The office assists Norwegian military procurement agencies with materials and training procurement, amounting to approximately $2 billion annually. The Norwegian Department of Defense currently has about 250 Foreign Military Sales (FMS) projects with the U.S. Government.

1993-1995: Oslo 2 at the White House

“It has taken time to see the benefits, but the signs from a couple of years ago are now showing. We are at a point of no return,” Norwegian Foreign Minister Bjørn Tore Godal told the National Press Club.

New of Norway, issue 9, 1995

Godal’s address, “Consolidation of Middle East Peace,” came the day after the interim agreement between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization was signed at the White House last month. The agreement aims at strengthening democratic development among Palestinians and improving the likelihood that difficult issues have been resolved.

U.S. participation in the process was a “job well done and helped bring about the necessary support for the signing,” Godal said. The agreement, called “Oslo II,” wasnamed for the secret peace talks held in Norway two years ago that initiated the Middle East peace process.

Violence on the West Bank remains an everyday happening, Godal acknowledged, and terrorism may weaken the basis for peace as counterforces try to sabotage the peace process. “The only way to undermine the counterforces is to have the social processes move forward,” he said. “Explain to people that things are on the move. People must experience the change and improvement,” which is one reason that monetary contributions are necessary to stabilize the area.

Norway donates $13 per capita to Palestinians annually, a standard which the foreign minister hopes other nations will match.

Cato Schiøtz, forsvarer for Per Orderud, knyttes også til Lillehammersaken (som Kjeld Vibe var innblandet i) og Liland-saken (justismord), og Annæus Schjødt som var under Jens Christian Hauges vinge:

Som høyesterettsadvokat Annæus Schjødt uhemmet skryter av i sin bok; ”Mange Liv” (2004), ble Jens Christian Hauge en av Schjødts største oppdragsgivere, for landets aller mest betydningsfulle saker. Hvordan er dette mulig? Hvordan kan det ha seg at én person, en ”vanlig” advokat, har det i sin makt å fordele de aller mest betydningsfulle sakene i Norge ned til Annæus Schjødt?

Den første store saken Schjødt fikk var Lillehammersaken, hvor han gjennom Hauges anbefaling – og etter eget sigende – nær sagt ble praiet av den Israelske ambassades folk langs en bygdevei i Valdres, og fikk jobben med å forsvare et par av de drapsmistenkte. Hvorfor var Hauge så engasjert i akkurat denne saken? Og, hva var det som hadde fått Hauge til å plukke ut Annæus?

Det må også sies at norske myndigheter ikke har kapasitet eller mulighet til å kontrollere den enorme mengden av store skip som opererer i norske havner. Høegh Autoliners alene (altså kun en gren av Høeghs flåte), består av 50 skip med dekk tilsvarende 19 fotballbaner. I tillegg er lovverket rundt importkontroll avansert og problematisk (og under stadig endring).

Det kom tydelig frem at havnevesenet ikke hadde den fjerneste anelse om ballasten ombord i et skip som forliste lenger nord i landet (har ikke funnet kilde på dette), da journalister undersøkte flere dødsfall i etterkant av dette.
