ER Editor: See this tweet from journalist Cesare Sacchetti to frame this story:
One could be forgiven for imagining that it is Matteo Salvini who is supposed to be next in line to take power for the right in Italy. But it now seems his days are numbered as he bizarrely voices support for the globalist takeover of the Italian government by former ECB head Mario Draghi. This from a man who was staunchly anti-EU. Alexander Mercouris does a good job of describing Salvini’s current position in a recent video – see Salvini shocks Italy, supports new EU Draghi government (below).
Now it is Giorgia Meloni‘s turn as head of the ‘far-right’ (we don’t trust these terms) Brothers of Italy.
Meloni, however, seems to have already been bought out.
Giorgia Meloni joins the Aspen Institute
Giorgia Meloni’s climb is not stopping. The leader of Fratelli d’Italia, after the leadership of a European party, also takes another international goal. Meloni has entered the Aspen Institute, one of the largest and most prestigious U.S. think tanks in the world. Chaired by no less than Giulio Tremonti, the non-profit association boasts among its members Giorgio Napolitano and his son Giulio, Paolo Mieli, Walter Russell Mead, Roberto Maroni, Antonio Martino and so on. (Trilateral, Bruegel, Aspen: the “real powers” choose who commands in Italy, ed.)
Yet, as Formiche.net writes, Aspen is not just any think tank. The Italian detachment is located on Piazza Navona and is a stop for many diplomats and academics, intellectuals and politicians, American and not. Even the new American president Joe Biden, in one of his last trips to Rome as Barack Obama’s deputy, stopped by Aspen for an international conference. Meloni, according to the polls the most loved leader in Italy, has started a sort of re-styling. The leader of FdI has in fact chased away the idea of an anti-European right wing that haunted her to take on very different guises. It is no coincidence that she is the only woman in Brussels at the head of a party, that of the European Conservatives.
Giorgia Meloni in the Aspen Institute
The Aspen is nothing more than a private association, whose mission is to promote humanistic values and solutions to political and economic problems through seminars, cultural programs, conferences and enlightened leadership training.
“We enrich people’s lives and help them work in a more informed and intelligent way. Together we can find the keystone to success in business, in leadership, in life: balancing conflicting values to build a foundation for working together, while staying true to our ideals,” its president Walter Isaacson called it. In the U.S. think tank there is no lack of illustrious names such as Mario Monti and the honorary president Giuliano Amato, Marta Dassù and Gianni Letta, Paolo Savona and Romano Prodi, Enel’s CEO Francesco Starace and John Elkann as vice-president.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
