Bilderberger President of the European Commission promoting Vaccine passports
Ursula von der Leyen is the current President of the European Commission. She was Minister of Defence in the German Government from 2013 to 2019; where she was cited as running a department characterised by “nepotism” and “incompetence”, with large cushy contract to consultants from McKinsey.
Ursula von der Leyen has been noted as a strong advocate for the formation of an EU Army and advocates for a more aggressive foreign policy for the European Union.  In 2021 she was promoting vaccine passports.
The upper class personified
Ursula von der Leyen grew up in an upper-class family, the daughter of the former Prime Minister of Lower Saxony, Ernst Albrecht, scion of an ancient noble family. He worked as one of the first European civil servants in the European Commission in 1958, first as chef de cabinet to the European commissioner for competition Hans von der Groeben in the Hallstein Commission, and then as director-general of the Directorate-General for Competition from 1967 to 1970.
In 1986, she married into the dynasty of the “silk barons” von der Leyen, who have been part of the German establishment since the 18th century. They live in the castle-like family estate in Burgdorf-Beinhorn.
Education and professional career
In 1977, she started studying economics at the University of Göttingen. At the height of the fear of communist terrorism in West Germany, she fled to London in 1978 after her family was told that the Red Army Faction (RAF) was planning to kidnap her due to her being the daughter of a prominent politician. She spent more than a year in hiding in London, where she lived with protection from Scotland Yard under the name Rose Ladson to avoid detection and enrolled at the London School of Economics.
In 1980, she switched to studying medicine and enrolled at the Hannover Medical School, where she graduated in 1987 and acquired her medical license.
From 1988 to 1992, she worked as an assistant physician at the Women's Clinic of the Hannover Medical School. Upon completing her doctoral studies, she graduated as a Doctor of Medicine in 1991. Following the birth of twins (she has seven children in all), she was a housewife in Stanford, California, from 1992 to 1996, while her husband was a faculty member of Stanford University.
From 1998 to 2002, she taught at the Department of Epidemiology, Social Medicine and Health System Research at the Hannover Medical School. In 2001 she earned a Master of Public Health degree at the institution.
Her meteoric rise began in the early 2000s, when she was drawn into politics in father's footsteps. Thanks to his networks, despite her inexperience, she was not only able to secure a secure direct mandate for the Lower Saxony state parliament, but was also appointed Family Minister by family friend Christian Wulff - a clever PR coup, the blonde, preppy mother of seven with the chaste hairstyle was able to do be sold as a symbol of successful conservative ideals.
A year later the “power woman” was elected to the leadership of CDU and two years later she became Federal Family Minister in Angela Merkel's cabinet. There, she started a campaign to introduce Internet blocks, earning her the nickname "Zensursula".
In 2013, she was moved over to Federal Defense Ministry, which threatened to founder her career. Although the military budget became bigger, the equipment and logistics problems of the Bundeswehr also became more mismanaged. Instead of tackling the underlying problems politically, von der Leyen hired a whole army of advisors from well-known law firms and consulting firms for large sums, whose task was also and above all to conceal the failure of the minister and to sell her positively at the taxpayer's expense.
Her ideological orientation became more and more radical, as a foreign and security policy hawk who has fully integrated herself into the transatlantic NATO strategy, standing behind the model of militarization of the EU and the West with a “policy of strength” to continue a new Cold War with Russia.
She is an advocate of a "European Defence Union", with an army which can act independently of NATO and the United States.
Thank you Melinda & Bill for your leadership and dedication!
On 2 July 2019, von der Leyen was proposed by the European Council as the candidate for President of the European Commission. She was then elected by the European Parliament on 16 July; and she took office on 1 December, becoming the first woman in such role.
Agent of Influence
“As Federal Defense Minister, Von der Leyen behaved as the US President wanted when he called for increase in military spending: higher military budgets, increased armaments instead of disarmament. And although this minister got into trouble because of her high spending on consulting firms and various personnel decisions and was anything but a role model, she became President of the EU Commission. That is a key function and it is important for the US.
The decision for von der Leyen happened quietly backstage. No sensible person can explain why she was given this important office. A partial explanation is that she had the support of important countries from Eastern Europe. The United States has a great influence on these states.
In the first major critical case, Von der Leyen immediately and unequivocally represented the US position, where she said Iran itself is to be blamed for the confrontation in the Middle East and for the execution of the Iranian general. With her, the United States can probably also stake a claim on other occasions and play a key role in shaping the internal structure of the European Union. Ursula von der Leyen is the perfect example of an "agent of influence".”
Albrecht Müller (January 2, 2021) 
On Sunday 13 December 2020, Ursula von der Leyen said the EU’s relations with the UK are going to be “about new beginnings with old friends”.
She was asked if the two sides could reach a deal with three weeks left before the transition period ends, and future trading would be under World Trade Organization rules.
The President of the European Commission said "there is movement" in the Brexit talks but the UK had the choice to “play by our rules” if it wants "seamless access" to the EU single market, or see “border and tariffs”.
