Luck of the Concordia Kids
by Robert Wenzel: An
Interview With Jimmy Israel (Producer Involved With Mohammed Film)
Two kids are
starting to show up on the scene as new major global players.
The PEU Report
as mysterious as the anti-Islam video, but I find too curious
the case of the Concordia
Kids. This year's event has President Bill Clinton and Senator
John McCain as headliners. Lynn Forester de Rothschild will speak,
identifies the Concordia Kids as Nick Logothetis and Matt Swift.
Logothetis and Swift know each other from prep school days. They
both attended Salisbury
School, an all-boys, private college-preparatory boarding school
located in Connecticut. Graduates from the school include Prince
Ali bin Al Hussein '93, half-brother of King Abdullah II of Jordan.
Logothetis attended the ground zero for CIA recruitment educational
institute, the Elliot School of International Affairs at The George
Washington University. Swift attended the other Washington D.C.
CIA recruitment center, Georgetown University, where he studied
Government and National Security Studies .
then both became sponsors of Rupert Murdoch. On his
Linked-in page, Swift lists stints at News Corporation and News
Corp holdings: Fox News Channel and the New York Post.
goes into more detail on his Linked-in page:
In 2006, he
was a summer consultant at the New York Post.
he was an intern at lFox News Channel.
In 2007, he
also worked at Murdoch's BSkyB, London
From 2008 to
2010, he worked at News Corp and writes, "Reported to Rupert
Murdoch and James Murdoch."
In 2008, in
a speech broadcast by C-span, Murdoch said
this about the two:
Let me end
with a little story about one of these young people. His name
is Matt Swift. While still in high school, Matt and his friend,
Nick Logothetis, asked themselves: What are boys stuck in a boarding
school with no place else to go most interested in? The answer
was girls and food. Wisely they decided that food was much easier
to supply. So they created a snack business that took off. Within
months they were earning thousands of dollars and contributing
much of their profit to worthy causes like helping the people
displaced by Hurricane Katrina.
Nicholas applied for an internship at Fox News, and were accepted.
While there they sent me a a proposal to help implement a course
for entrepreneurs back at their school. Since that first internship
two years ago, these fellows have worked at the New York Post
where they helped create a new insert targeting the 18-24 year
old generation. They then spent time in London with Sky our
new insert targeting the 18-24 year old generation.
is the advisory board that the kids have managed to assemble for
Concorida. It includes:
a veteran United States diplomat who has been stationed at eight
different Foreign Service posts in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
He also served as the US Ambassador to the United Nations. Most
recently Ambassador Negroponte played a critical role in President
George W. Bush's Administration where he served as the United States
Ambassador to Iraq, the first Director of National Intelligence
and the Deputy Secretary of State.
Abdul-Aziz bin Talal bin Abdul-Aziz al Saud, a member of the
Saudi Royal Family.
Fragos Townsend, the former Assistant to President George W.
Bush for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism and chaired the
Homeland Security Council from May 2004 until January 2008. Townsend
is currently the Senior Vice President for Worldwide Government
and Legal Affairs at MacAndrews and Forbes Holdings, Inc and previously
was a corporate partner at the law firm of Baker Botts, LLP.
and possibly others, are sponsoring these two for big things. Watch
these two for clues to new global thinking amongst elitists, they
are going to be clued in very early.
