The Bilderberg Group is a six-decades-old club for some of the world’s most influential individuals, politicians, officials, businessmen, academics and European royalty, regularly gathering to discuss global policy issues. Critics accuse them of acting as a shadow unelected government, would-be rulers of the world, which make decisions affecting billions of people behind closed doors, with little regard for the needs or wishes of the general population.
According to its website, The Bilderberg conference is an annual three-day meeting designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America. The pioneering meeting grew out of the concern expressed by leading citizens on both sides of the Atlantic that Western Europe and North America were not working together as closely as they should on issues of common interest.
The first meeting took place in Hotel De Bilderberg in Oosterbeek, Netherlands, from May 29-31, 1954. Representatives from economic, social, political and cultural fields were invited to hold informal discussions to help create a better understanding of the complex forces and major trends affecting Western nations in the difficult post-war period.
Through the years, the meetings have become a forum for discussion on a wide range of topics – from trade to jobs, from monetary policy to investment and from ecological challenges to the task of promoting international security. In the context of a globalized world, it is hard to think of any issue in either Europe or North America that could be tackled unilaterally.
The meetings are governed by what is called the “Chatham House Rule” which stipulates that participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speakers, nor of any other participant may be revealed.
Despite once meriting just a handful of press reports, coverage of the Bilderberg confab by both mainstream and alternative media has rapidly expanded in recent years, leading Bilderberg luminaries to express their anger over the “constant exposure” fueled by an increasing number of protesters who descend on the conference venue.
According to the late veteran journalist Jim Tucker, Bilderberg elitists are furious over the “constant exposure” the secretive group is receiving in the European media. The U.S. corporate media routinely ignores what would normally be considered a sensational story – over 100 of the world’s most powerful people – including the likes of Eric Schmidt (a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, CFR), Henry Kissinger (a CFR and member of the Trilateral Commission, TC), David Rockefeller (a CFR and TC), Herman van Rompuy, and the Queen of the Netherlands – meeting behind closed doors to discuss the future of the world.
During the 2010 Bilderberg meeting, members were overheard complaining about the fact that demonstrators could even afford to travel to different countries in order to make their voices heard and that the fact they still had an income that allowed them to do so was a “permanent threat” to and “very scary” to Bilderberg’s agenda.
At the 2012 Bilderberg meeting, a source working inside the Westfields Marriott hotel told London Guardian journalist Charlie Skelton that Bilderberg attendees referred to protesters outside the hotel as “cockroaches.” Skelton reported that as a hotel employee drove through the gates of the hotel, “He lowered his window and beckoned me over. “I want you to know that they call you people ‘cockroaches’. I work in the hotel and they asked me if those cockroaches were still out there. They meant you.’”
Skelton also learned from police that they were far from friendly towards Bilderberg. “I was helping a cop move a security cordon near some trees, when he lowered his voice and casually let slip: “We don’t support Bilderberg, trust me.”
Despite being sworn to secrecy, hotel employees routinely let slip information about private conversations held by Bilderbergers, primarily as a means of retribution for the rudeness and disrespect with which they are treated by attendees. Skelton’s report confirms that despite some of the richest people on the planet being in attendance, hotel staff received no tips whatsoever. “This year, no one got anything,” he was told by a source inside the hotel.
The admission that Bilderberg members view those who protest against them as “cockroaches” illustrates how the group represents nothing less than a sinister anti-American, undemocratic, authoritarian and elitist group of control freaks. This yet again underscores how Bilderberg’s political agenda, conducted behind closed doors and with the compliant silence of most of the mainstream media, is brazenly nefarious in that it is being crafted by people who display absolute contempt for ordinary citizens and their inherent freedoms.
Another leak to emerge was the fact that, “They don’t just all sit together in a big room – which is what I always thought – but they have tons of separate rooms and they split up for the meetings. The first ones are after 4:30 on Thursday.” According to former NATO Secretary General and Bilderberg attendee Willy Claes, Bilderberg guests are normally given around 10 minutes of talk time, and no two guests are allowed to sit next to each other more than once, to enable the maximum exchange of views on important subjects. After every sub-conference a report is compiled of their presentation, and “the participants are then obviously considered to use this report in setting their policies in the environments in which they affect.” This more private dimension to the conference gives further credence to Claes’s 2010 statement that Bilderberg expects each member to implement what has been discussed in their relative fields of influence after the meeting is concluded.
The question of what exactly is discussed at Bilderberg should indeed be a concern to both the left and the right. Although the Bilderberg Group itself claims “no resolutions are proposed, no votes taken, and no policy statements issued.” Bilderberg founder Prince Bernhard even stated in an interview that, “there could be issued an idea… that everybody liked, and that idea is then launched.”
During a Belgian radio interview, Claes admitted that Bilderberg attendees are mandated to implement decisions that are formulated during the annual conference of power brokers. He also said that Bilderberg does indeed decide policy for the coming year.
One skeptic of Claes’ works for a group called Political Research Associates, which is funded in part by the Ford Foundation, founded by Edsel Ford, the son of the notorious Henry Ford, who received awards from Hitler for funding the Nazi war machine with slave labor, tainting the PRA’s stated objectives, which are apparently to track conspiracy theories and the right-wing while “advancing an open, democratic, and pluralistic society”. The Ford Foundation is little more than an attack dog which transnational elitists use, through its offshoots like PRA, to demonize any criticism of their agenda as extremist and anti-semitic, which is quite rich considering the history of the corporation.
An extract from an article in the June, 2014, edition of Cicero, a Berlin-based monthly publication, quotes an unnamed Bilderberg member as stating (after translation), “Those sentences which really matter are being spoken out (at Bilderberg). You learn an incredible amount. Davos in comparison is pure PR talk.”
The admission is extremely noteworthy given how Bilderberg and Davos are treated by the media. Whereas hundreds of journalists travel to Davos every year, generating thousands of headlines, a relative handful barely even mention Bilderberg and if they do it’s usually only to denigrate its importance as little other than a bugbear for conspiracy theorists.
In some countries, it is illegal for government officials or citizens to attend meetings like the Bilderberg Group meetings, but nothing is ever done to stop the practice, and prosecute the offenders.
Setting policy in secret is illegal in the UK and Denmark.
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
If you were to look at past official Bilderberg participant lists, you would see a large number of U.S. citizens, including Massachusetts Senator John Kerry, Governor of Indiana Mitch Daniels, a National Security adviser, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, and a large number of bankers, business CEOs, including Google’s Eric Schmidt, PayPal’s Peter Thiel, and assorted others among the attendees. All of them are in violation of the law and should be prosecuted under the law.
In Britain, it is a violation of the law for government officials to attend meetings like the Bilderberg Group meetings. While the government’s response claims that the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne attended as a private individual, it also states that “For discussions in the periphery of the Bilderberg meeting, on issues of concern to the UK, the Chancellor acts in an official capacity.”
A letter written by the Treasury states that the Bilderberg meeting “affords the opportunity to meet other Finance Ministers and senior members of International Organisations,” and compares it to EU, IMF and G7 and G20 meetings. Of course, the difference is that all of those meetings are on the record, where as Bilderberg takes place in total secrecy behind closed doors. The admission that George Osborne held secret discussions at Bilderberg in an official capacity with other finance leaders and the heads of international banking, at the expense of the taxpayer, represents a direct violation of the Ministerial code.
MP’s are not authorised to attend private meetings without disclosing details to the public, and they are also supposed to have a secretary on hand making minutes, which is not the case at Bilderberg. Even if Osborne held some discussions in a personal capacity, rather than an official one, that can still be classed as a conflict of interest given that he is an elected official.
This is not the first time that Osborne has been caught in the act. In 2011, The London Guardian reported that according to the Treasury, Osborne was attending the Bilderberg meeting in Switzerland in an official capacity as the British Chancellor. Despite the fact that this violates the Ministerial code, Osborne faced no repercussions.
Both Osborne and his opposition counterpart, Ed Balls (as well as Prime Minister David Cameron) attended the elite meeting in 2013. The two are often painted up as bitter political rivals in the British media, yet they have attended several of the secret confabs together in recent years.
In 2013, Bilderberg luminary Henry Kissinger ‘joked’ at an elite dinner party in Washington, D.C., that Hillary Clinton should run for president in 2016. “At least four secretaries of state became president,” said Kissinger in remarks at an Atlantic Council dinner. He also ‘joked’ that he had “thought up all kinds of schemes to get around” Constitutional protections that prevented him, as a foreign born citizen, from becoming president himself.
At the gathering, Kissinger presented Clinton with a ‘Distinguished Leadership Award’, a direct seal of approval for a Clinton presidential run. Upon accepting the award, Clinton stated: “When I became secretary of state, I spent a lot of time thinking about my illustrious predecessors – not primarily the ones who went on to become president,” she said. “But about the extraordinary generation of those leaders who were not just present at the creation but leading the creation of a liberal global order that provided unprecedented peace and prosperity along with progress on behalf of the values that we hold in common.”
“At least four secretaries of state became president. And that sort of started focusing my mind even though there was a constitutional provision that prevented me from doing it,” said Kissinger, who was born in Germany. Of course, when Henry Kissinger makes ‘jokes’, anyone who knows anything about the man knows that they are not actually jokes, primarily because a cold hearted war criminal doesn’t joke around.
In recent data dumps by Wikileaks, dubbed the ‘Kissinger Cables’, the Bilderberg stalwart is quoted as saying, “Before the Freedom of Information Act, I used to say at meetings, ‘The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer’.”
The Atlantic Council, of which Kissinger is a director, is an elite think tank, an offshoot of Bilderberg, populated exclusively by North American and European elites.
A serious complaint has been registered against the Bilderberg Group’s charity, the ‘Bilderberg Association’, with the UK’s Charity Commission. The complaint was launched by a member of the public on the basis that the ‘Bilderberg Association’ could bring the Charity Commission into disrepute and damage public trust in charities, by allegedly not complying with UK charity law.
The ‘Bilderberg Association’ is funded by Goldman Sachs and BP and engages in one sole ‘charitable activity’ – funding the Bilderberg Meetings. The ‘Bilderberg Association’ claims that its objectives are “to promote the study of, and public education in international affairs, economics and the social sciences”. To claim for charitable status in the UK, and thus benefit from tax-free funding, a charity must demonstrate that their aims are for public benefit – broadly, to “advance education or religion or relieve poverty”.
Furthermore, the Charity Commission deems that “a political purpose cannot meet the public benefit requirement and so cannot be a charitable purpose.” A ‘political purpose’ means any purpose directed at furthering the interests of any political party; or securing, or opposing, any change in the law or in the policy or decisions of central government or local authorities, whether in this country or abroad.
Of significant concern is that the Bilderberg Association’s committee member and trustee, Cabinet minister Kenneth Clarke QC, MP, claimed to have ‘forgotten’ that he was a trustee of the charity when questioned in parliament.
With international policy having been set by Bilderberg for decades behind closed doors with complete contempt for transparency and the democratic process, the organization is in the process of merging with a new breed of technocrats under the umbrella of Google – with the behemoth corporation being handed the baton by Bilderberg to implement policies in a variety of different fields, both technology-related and geopolitical.
Has the Bilderberg meeting become too mainstream for some of the world’s richest elite? From Warren Buffet and Monsanto-linked Bill Gates to Oprah (a CFR) and Jeb Bush (a CFR), the local media has begun reporting on a closed doors meeting between billionaires and politicians at the gated beach island of Kiawah, South Carolina, in 2013.
As of right now, it seems like this closed doors event is sort of a mini Bilderberg group meeting. One of the only news sources to be covering this since it’s a local issue, says that around 20 highly expensive jets were lined up at the Charleston International Airport on Johns Island, and that Bill Gates and others were at the Sanctuary Hotel on Kiawah Island. The attendee list, according to the CBS report, includes Jeb Bush, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Bill and Melinda Gates, Dan Gilbert (owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers), Warren Buffet, Oprah, and others.
HOW THE BILDERBERG GROUP ORCHESTRATES WORLD EVENTS —
On September 7, 1992, two term President of the European Commission Jacques Delors gave a speech to the Royal Institute of International Affairs titled The European Community and the New World Order. Invoking the famous New World Order-speech of George H.W. Bush in 1991. Delors took its meaning one step further, speaking of “world government”, “transferring sovereignty” and a “worldwide single market”.
The speech is especially interesting in view of the fact that just four months earlier Delors took part in the Bilderberg meeting, which was the same conference in which Henry Kissinger delivered his famous speech concerning people and their willingness to relinquish their individual rights “for the guarantee of their wellbeing granted to them by their world government.”
Speaking on the role of the European Commission in the creation of the new world order, Delors mentions the plans of the Anglo-American establishment for a North-American Union, “Our trading partners are gradually being won over to the idea that regional integration has a dynamic impact on all, and the European model is an inspiration for others- witness the recent agreements concluded by the United States, Canada and Mexico.” Indeed, the merger of the three nations into one North-American community ranked and ranks very high on Bilderberg’s list of objectives.
“I believe,” the European Commissioner stated, “it is not too presumptuous to claim that it (the European Community) still has something revolutionary about it, that it is something of a “laboratory” for the management of interdependence.”
However, he complains, “(…) giving birth to institutions to which sovereignty is to be transferred and which are to be given power manage cooperation and settle disputes is a slow and arduous process.” Delors goes on to emphasize: “The contribution that the Community as such can make to the new world order can, to use an image of the plant world, be considered something of a hybrid, what is produced by crossing a world power with an international organisation.”
In closure, Delors expresses his ultimate belief and that of his fellow conspirators: “The conclusion, Your Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen, is that the Community’s contribution to a new world order is, like the Community itself, something original: a method which will serve as a reference, a body whose presence will be felt.”
“There are numerous definitions of global governance. In the economic and financial sphere I will propose that global governance comprehends not only the constellation of supranational institutions – including the international financial institutions – but also the informal groupings that have progressively emerged at the global level. Those informal forums (G7, G10, G20, etc.) are key in improving global coordination in all the areas where decision making processes remain national – whether in helping to work out agreed prudential standards and codes or to facilitate where appropriate, the coordination of economic macro-policies.”
Notice the importance of these “informal” gatherings in the minds of the regular attendees, described by some as “key in improving global coordination.” From these statements and writings a clear picture emerges. The plans for further economic, political, and military integration, pre-scripted for many-a-decade, is designed to expand from regional to global in successive, pre-scripted stages, following a meticulous consensus presided over by the world’s aristocratic elites as well as big economic and political players. Prime Bilderberg kingpins have described this incremental process in detail, lauding the unchecked meetings through which this process is fine-tuned. Contrary to what many mainstream media figureheads will make you believe, Bilderberg is one of these key informal gatherings.
It was reported in 2002 that there was sharp division among Bilderberg luminaries over the issue of war with Iraq.
Like their brother group, the Trilateral Commission, according to a report in the April 22, 2002 issue of American Free Press, many European leaders object to America’s determination to attack Iraq. Warhawks in the Bush administration are pressing for an attack in late summer or early fall. American officials attending the globalist confab will be trying hard to convince the Europeans to not oppose the war if unable to outwardly support the pending attack.
On the domestic front, Bilderberg needs to convince a few generals and admirals. Secretary of State Colin Powell (a CFR) follows orders, but his heart is not in his saber-rattling words.
Bilderberg is using its influence to promote Fast Track in Congress. The messenger boys are Sens. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) (a CFR) and Christopher Dodd (D-CT) (a CFR). Both have been invited to the last three meetings. Hagel was supposed to attend the meeting in Sweden a year ago but had to remain in Washington when Sen. James Jeffords bolted the Republican Party.
By giving President Bush Fast Track authority to negotiate expansion of NAFTA throughout the Western Hemisphere, Bilderberg’s goal of creating an “American Union,” with all countries in North, Central and South America, will be advanced. The ultimate goal is to divide the world into three great regions for the administrative convenience of a world government. The dollar is to become the common currency.
The split over waging war emerged when the Trilaterals met in Washington in April. Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission have interlocking leadership and a common agenda. Vice President Dick Cheney (a CFR and TC), Powell and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld made the case for war.
According to the author of The True Story of the Bilderberg Group, “Bilderberg is not a conspiracy theory. It’s a conspiracy reality. It was a vehicle through which private financier oligarchical interests were able to impose their policies on nominally sovereign governments. The idea is the creation of a global network of cartels, more powerful than any nation on Earth, destined to control the necessities of life of the rest of humanity.”
A major victory, the author says, was engineering the 1973 oil price shock to prop up the dollar and make Wall Street rich.
High on the agenda of the 2013 meeting was Eric Schmidt and Google. “It is an integral part of the United States security apparatus. Your information is processed, analyzed and stored for later use.” He adds: “Limitless anything spells c-o-n-t-r-o-l.”
Other accounts suggest the annual meeting can be decisive.
Alexandre Lamfalussy, the banker who went on to run the European Monetary Institute, the forerunner to the ECB, recalls sitting next to Helmut Kohl, the West German chancellor, at the Bilderberg in the mid-1980s. He was asked whether Germany would ever be unified. It was inflammatory, and publicly unutterable, with Soviet troops still occupying the East. “It’s going to happen,” Kohl said. “Forget about your reticence, you will have to understand that German division will not endure.” Americans at the table thought, at first, he was joking.
Similarly, according to the author Jon Ronson, during the Falklands War, David Owen managed to turn the weight of world opinion with a single speech demanding sanctions on Argentina before an audience of foreign ministers at Bilderberg. The sanctions were later imposed.
And for business leaders, it is a perfect opportunity to lay the groundwork for deals. According to Tom Bergin’s Spills and Spin, the account of the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster, Lord Browne, the head of BP, used a walk by Lake Como at the 2004 gathering in Italy to suggest a vast merger with Shell to create the world’s biggest oil company. Lord Browne left under the impression it would happen. Indeed, the cards have been firmly on the table regarding the deal, and industry experts are sure that it is only a matter of time before the merger goes ahead. Representatives from both BP and Shell were at the 2013 Bilderberg meeting, as usual, as well as members of the Dutch royal family and the Dutch prime minister – Shell Oil is a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell, which was founded under a royal charter.
On May 6, 2009, it was reported that the Bilderberg Group meeting is an annual confab of around 150 of the world’s most influential powerbrokers in government, industry, banking, media, academia and the military-industrial complex. The secretive group operates under “Chatham House rules,” meaning that no details of what is discussed can ever be leaked to the media, despite editors of the world’s biggest newspapers, the Washington Post, the New York Times and the Financial Times, being present at the meeting.
According to sources of the author of The True Story of the Bilderberg Group, which have been proven highly accurate in the past, Bilderberg was divided on whether to put into motion, “Either a prolonged, agonizing depression that dooms the world to decades of stagnation, decline and poverty … or an intense-but-shorter depression that paves the way for a new sustainable economic world order, with less sovereignty but more efficiency.”
Details of the economic agenda were contained in a pre-meeting booklet handed out to Bilderberg members. On a more specific note, the author warns that Bilderberg is fostering a false picture of economic recovery, suckering investors into ploughing their money back into the stock market again only to later unleash another massive downturn which will create “massive losses and searing financial pain in the months ahead,” according to a Canada Free Press report.
The author then said that Bilderberg was assuming U.S. unemployment figures would reach around 14% by the end of 2009, almost doubling the current (5/2009) official figure of 8.1%.
In spring 2002, when war hawks in the Bush administration were pushing for a summer invasion of Iraq, Bilderbergers expressed their desire for a delay and the attack was not launched until March of 2003.
In 2006, the author predicted that the U.S. housing market would be allowed to soar before the bubble was cruelly popped, which is exactly what transpired.
In 2008, the author predicted that Bilderberg was creating the conditions for a financial calamity, which is exactly what began a few months later with the collapse of Lehman Brothers.
Several key geopolitical decisions were made at Bilderberg’s 2008 meeting in Washington, D.C., again emphasizing the fact that the confab is far more than an informal get-together.
As was reported at the time, Bilderberg was concerned that the price of oil was accelerating too fast after it hit $150 a barrel, and wanted to ensure that “oil prices would probably begin to decline”. This is exactly what happened in the latter half of 2008 as oil again sunk below $50 a barrel. The rapid rise in oil prices in 2005 when oil was at $40 was predicted by some, because Bilderberg had called for prices to rise during that year’s meeting in Munich. During the conference in Germany, Henry Kissinger told his fellow attendees that the elite had resolved to ensure that oil prices would double over the course of the next 12-24 months, which is exactly what happened.
Also at the 2008 meeting, former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (a CFR) formalized plans to sign a treaty on installing a U.S. radar base in the Czech Republic with Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg. Rice was joined at the meeting by Defense Secretary Robert Gates (a CFR), who reportedly encouraged EU globalists to get behind an attack on Iran. Low and behold, days later the EU threatened Iran with sanctions if it did not suspend its nuclear enrichment program.
On May 8, 2009, it was reported that leaked documents from the 1955 Bilderberg Group meeting held in Germany discuss the agenda to create a European Union and a single EU currency, decades before they were introduced, disproving once again debunkers who claim that Bilderberg has no influence over world events.
Leaked papers from the meeting which took place from September 23-25, 1955, at the Grand Hotel Sonnenbichl in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, West Germany, were recently released by the Wikileaks website. The summary report of the 1955 meeting talks of the “Pressing need to bring the German people, together with the other peoples of Europe, into a common market.” The document also outlines the plan, “To arrive in the shortest possible time at the highest degree of integration, beginning with a common European market.”
Just two years later, in 1957, the first incarnation of the European Economic Community (EEC) was born, which was comprised of a single market between Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. The EEC gradually enlarged over the next few decades until it became the European Community, one of the three pillars of the European Union, which was officially created in 1993.
The 1955 Bilderberg summary outlines a consensus that, “It might be better to proceed through the development of a common market by treaty rather than by the creation of new high authorities.” The EEC was duly created via the Treaty of Rome, which was signed on March 25, 1957.
The same process is still being followed to this day with the Lisbon Treaty, which hands over vast swathes of national sovereignty to the EU by means of the consent of Presidents and Prime Ministers of European countries, rather than by the arbitrary creation of new authorities, a method that would more obviously lay bare the fact that the creation of a federal EU superstate is totalitarian by its very nature.
However, the same cannot be said for the single European currency, which wasn’t even introduced in the form of notes and coins until January 2002, having been first codified in the 1992 Maastricht Treaty. The documents prove that Bilderberg members were pushing for its introduction nearly 40 years earlier.
“A European speaker expressed concern about the need to achieve a common currency, and indicated that in his view this necessarily implied the creation of a central political authority,” states the summary document. True to form, the single European currency, the Euro, was not introduced until after the creation of a central political authority – the EU itself. The document also stresses, “The necessity to bring the German people into a common European market as quickly as possible,” adding that the future was in danger without a “United Europe”.
The Club of Rome’s members, including Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands and Mikhail Gorbachev, believe humanity requires “a common motivation, namely a common adversary” in order to realize world government. It doesn’t matter if the enemy is “a real one or… one invented for the purpose.” In the process of struggling against this implacable enemy, democracy “will be made to seem responsible for the lagging economy, the scarcity and uncertainties. The very concept of democracy could then be brought into question and allow for the seizure of power.”
To accomplish the Bilderberg Group’s goal of implementing a global carbon tax to redistribute wealth (to themselves), they needed to put someone in control of the world’s No. 1 economy that would severely cripple it and then destroy it. His name is Barack Obama.
In 2008, while campaigning for the presidency, Obama made comments that were caught on video, about “bankrupting” coal plant owners and making energy prices “skyrocket.” “So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them, because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted . . . “Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad, because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, they would have to, uh, retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.”
After being elected in 2008, Obama began a push for the revival of a frightening proposal to slash carbon emissions by 80%, a move that would cause a new Great Depression, cost millions of jobs, and sink America to near third world status. Obama’s agenda to cut carbon emissions by 80% is a huge leap towards the ultimate goal, expressed by the Carnegie Institute in 2008, and afforded credibility by the corporate media – a complete reduction down to zero carbon emissions. That would potentially lead to the near complete reversal of hundreds of years of technological progress and man’s return to the stone age.
Obama’s new plan to deal with global warming directs the Environmental Protection Agency to issue carbon dioxide limits on new and existing power plants, which critics argue would cripple the coal industry.
Then, the puppet president chose a Secretary of Energy that believes “Big Science” and “Nobel-level breakthroughs,” along with taxing the peasants until they become third world serfs will save the planet from the menace of global warming and climate change. Dr. Chu, a physicist, didn’t tell the other half of the story — an increasing number of scientists believe the sun is a major driving force behind global warming, not carbon emissions.
In an interview, Dr. Chu was surprisingly candid when he said that, “reaching agreement on legislation to combat climate change would be difficult in the current recession because any scheme to regulate greenhouse gas emissions would probably cause energy prices to rise and drive manufacturing jobs to countries where energy is cheaper. The concern about cap-and-trade in today’s economic climate is that a lot of money might flow to developing countries in a way that might not be completely politically sellable.”
The president of the CFR is clearly onboard with the plan, and expanded on this topic in his article, State sovereignty must be altered in globalized era. According to the CFR president, a system of world government must be created and sovereignty eliminated in order to fight global warming and terrorism, both invented as the Club of Rome suggested. In addition to pushing the junk science of climate change, our rulers are systematically taking down the global economy in order to impose what the CFR president describes as “an international system of either world government or anarchy.”
In 1990, Jim Tucker, wrote that the Bilderbergers adopted climate change as the preferred model to impose global government and reintroduce serfdom. “Like the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group discovered the issue of environmental deterioration. Bilderbergers embraced a report from the Trilateral Commission that year on the environment, because the potential profit in cleaning up the mess would be immense.”
The following year, the Club of Rome think tank published The First Global Revolution, a book suggesting a draconian neo-Malthusianism “limit to growth” approach will solve the world’s problems, in fact a problem the global elite has with humanity. “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill,” the book states. “All these dangers are caused by human intervention,” and thus the “real enemy, then, is humanity itself.”
On May 15, 2009, it was reported that sources within Bilderberg said President Obama will be instructed to make another effort to get the United States to sign on to the International Criminal Court. The ICC treaty, if ratified by the Senate, would be superior to the Constitution, able to overrule Congress and the Supreme Court and impose “world law” on America. Bilderberg leaders said they understood the effort would have to be handled with “subtle delicacy” because of the Senate’s traditional hostility to joining the ICC.
Former President Bill Clinton, who attended Bilderberg as the obscure governor of Arkansas in 1991 and was elected president in 1992, OK’d the ICC treaty, even though a test vote showed more than 90 senators objecting to the treaty, including world government advocates who were scared off by patriotic voters made aware of the perils by The Spotlight, the inspiration for AMERICAN FREE PRESS. So Clinton dared not submit the ICC treaty for ratification, and was forced to wait for a wind change in politics.
But Bilderberg owns President Obama, who sees himself as a “citizen of the world.” He will be sweet-talking Senate supporters who are afraid to back the treaty. He will be hoping for an even more left-wing Senate after the 2010 election, His goal, as dictated by Bilderberg, is to persuade the new Senate (to be seated in January 2010), to ratify the ICC treaty late on a Saturday night, too late for the Sunday papers or to make changes in the Sunday TV talkies. You will not read of this in the Bilderberg-controlled Washington Post, New York Times, Los Angeles Times or hear about it on network news broadcasts.
On June 5, 2010, it was reported that according to Jim Tucker, an investigative journalist that has been reporting on the Bilderberg Group for years, the majority of Bilderberg members are now in favor of military air strikes on Iran. American Free Press muckraker Tucker has proven routinely accurate with the information he obtains from sources inside Bilderberg, which makes this year’s revelations all the more intriguing.
According to Tucker, Bilderberg luminaries are dismayed at the fact that “many important people” are not attending this year because, due to increasing exposure, invitees are “getting in trouble at home” and constituents are embarrassing them by asking irate questions such as “what are you doing with these monsters?” “All these people are exposing us, we get all this mail and calls,” Tucker paraphrased Bilderberg members as complaining.
Turning to Iran, Tucker said that many Bilderberg members, including Brzezinski, were in favor of U.S. air strikes on Iran and were “leaning towards war,” although 100 per cent of members were not supportive of an attack.
Concerning the climate change agenda, on which subject Microsoft founder Bill Gates was personally invited to the conference to discuss, Tucker said that Bilderberg was still intent on pushing it in pursuit of a carbon tax despite the fact that the whole move was massively eviscerated in the aftermath of the Climategate scandal.
Tucker quoted one Bilderberg member as all but admitting defeat on the mission to hoodwink the public into paying taxes in the name of fighting global warming. “On climate change, we’re about whipped,” said one of the elitists in attendance. However, Tucker said that the globalists were working on putting out more climate change propaganda “even as we speak”.
The future of oil prices are always an important topic to Bilderberg and the leaks Tucker and other investigators relayed from previous Bilderberg meetings were proven accurate when oil prices hit $150 a barrel in 2008, which was precisely what Bilderberg had called for. “Gas prices are going to be nice and cheap this summer,” said Tucker, adding that they would start to rise again to the $4 a gallon level around November when artificial scarcity is created.
On the march towards anti-democratic global government, Bilderberg members stated that America must be “Europeanized” and turned into a giant socialist welfare state with health rationing and higher income taxes. Tucker said that Bilderberg was intent on mandating a bank tax paid directly to the IMF to fund global governance and a global treasury department under the IMF, and that this would then merely be passed on to the consumer.
Plans for the European Union were made at the Bilderberg meeting in 1955. The European Union combines most of the European countries into one union, with each member country relinquishing sovereignty to the Union.
Similar plans are in store for the United States. TAFTA, the Trans Atlantic Free Trade Agreement, and TPP, the Trans Pacific Partnership, will do to the U.S. what the EU did to Europe. The TAFTA will unite the United States with Europe, and the TPP will unite the U.S. with Asia. The sovereignty of the United States will be destroyed, as well as our economy, as we become ruled by globalist corporations and bankers.
During the 2012 Bilderberg conference held in Chantilly, Virginia, the head of the Syrian National Transitional Council, Bassma Kodmani, discussed the violent overthrow of the Bashar al-Assad regime and the installation of a government taking orders from the State Department, the European Union and NATO. “Kodmani is the Head of Foreign Affairs with the SNC, a coalition of Syrian opposition groups based in Istanbul, Turkey,” according to reports. “While at the Bilderberg meeting she will be in the company of the likes of former Secretary of State and accused war criminal Henry Kissinger, warhawk Richard Perle, and Thomas E. Donilon (a CFR), National Security Advisor for the Obama White House.”
Overthrowing the government in Syria has thus far proved problematic. In addition to significant military setbacks, the so-called rebels – in fact mercenaries funded and supported by the CIA, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey – have lost their previous “moderate” descriptor and are now congealed into a more or less united front of radical Sunni jihadists set against not only al-Assad in Damascus, but the United States and the West as well.
It can be argued if this turn in the proxy war against al-Assad is a natural or artificial development. Regardless, the intense Salafi character of the so-called resistance in Syria works in favor of the order out of chaos agenda often used by the financial elite to undermine societal cohesion and balkanize vassals, as Rockefeller globalist Zbigniew Brzezinksi (a CFR and TC) has designated people in Eurasia and the Middle East. Brzezinski and the global elite employed a similar strategy during the CIA’s proxy war in Afghanistan. Support for the Mujahideen resulted in the formation of the Taliban and al-Qaeda, both now regarded as key enemies in the war on terror.
On February 12, 2013, it was reported that Italian lawyer Alfonso Luigi Marra has requested that the Public Prosecutor of Rome investigate the secretive Bilderberg Group for criminal activity, questioning whether the elitist organization’s 2011 meeting in Switzerland led to the selection of Mario Monti as Prime Minister of Italy. Marra’s full request that the Public Prosecutor of Rome investigate Bilderberg, a translation of which is posted here (original version in Italian here), identifies the organization as a “secret world government seeking to destabilize democracies through carnage,” that has relied on “institutional collusion” to keep its agenda largely secret. Marra cites article 18 of the Italian Constitution, which explicitly bans secret societies from engaging in political activities.
Mario Monti, a former international advisor for Goldman Sachs, the European Chairman of David Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission and also a leading member of the Bilderberg Group, assumed office as Italian Prime Minister following the resignation of Silvio Berlusconi in November 2011. Monti’s cabinet was entirely comprised of unelected bureaucrats, prompting charges that Monti was merely the latest of a growing list of ex-Goldman Sachs technocrats selected undemocratically to seize control of European economies.
Monti attended the 2011 Bilderberg meeting in St. Moritz, Switzerland, at which Luigi suggests a deal may have been struck to appoint Monti as Berlusconi’s successor. Since the conference took place in June, five months before Monti’s appointment as PM, if evidence of this was uncovered by the Public Prosecutor it would clearly indicate that underhanded scheming had secured the position for Monti.
During the 2013 Bilderberg meeting attendees further discussed Syria and the course of action required to remold the “architecture” of the Middle East. It was decided an effort would be made to prolong “the war in Syria by arming the rebels and overturning recent military victories by Assad’s forces,” according to reports. Earlier there were reports on a renewed effort by the Obama administration to heighten tension in Syria.
A few days later, The Wall Street Journal reported “Barack Obama will authorize U.S. troops to train selected Syrian rebels, in order to counter the rising power of Al-Qaeda-linked extremists. The current policy approach continues to be strengthening the moderate opposition, which offers an alternative to the brutal Assad regime and the more extremist elements within the opposition,” a State Department spokeswoman said.
On April 11, 2013, Honorary President of the Supreme Court of Italy and former Senior Investigative Judge Ferdinando Imposimato, the man who prosecuted the case involving the assassination attempt against Pope John Paul II, sensationally accused the Bilderberg Group of being behind terrorist attacks in Europe.
In an interview with the ArticoloTre website, Imposimato, who was also involved in the case involving the kidnapping and murder of former Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro, said that he “found a document that left me appalled” implicating the Bilderberg Group in conspiring with the far right organization Ordine Nuovo to commit terror attacks. Speaking of unsolved murders in Italy and the document in his possession, Imposimato stated, “When it comes to slaughter it also speaks of the Bilderberg Group. I believe this document. I did some tests and I can say that behind the strategy of tension and the slaughters there is also the Bilderberg group, a sort of Big Brother is over, maneuvering, using terrorists and Masons. “
The “strategy of tension” refers to a policy under the auspices of Operation Gladio, a NATO cold war “stay behind” project that sought to create an expedient political climate in Europe by having its agents carry out terror attacks which were then blamed on both far left and far right political groups. Gladio was designed to demonize political opposition and “force the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security,” according to the testimony of former Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra.
Imposimato stated that he was given the document by a former Ordine Nuovo terrorist. Members of Ordine Nuovo (Italian for “New Order”) participated in numerous deadly terrorist attacks, including the 1969 Piazza Fontana bombing, the 1970 Rome-Messina train attack, the 1974 Piazza della Loggia bombing in Brescia, and the Italicus Express bombing in 1974.
According to Belgian viscount and current Bilderberg-chairman Étienne Davignon, the Bilderberg Group helped create the Euro in the 1990’s. He admitted this in an interview on March 16, 2009.
Imposimato’s broadside against Bilderberg follows in the footsteps of his compatriot Alfonso Luigi Marra, a prominent lawyer who recently requested that the Public Prosecutor of Rome investigate the Bilderberg Group for criminal activity, questioning whether the elitist organization’s 2011 meeting in Switzerland led to the selection of Mario Monti as Prime Minister of Italy.
Labeling the group a “unique, illegal brotherhood” of elitists who consider themselves to be “above the law,” Marra pointed the finger at Bilderberg for engineering wars, economic collapses, and arming dictators, activities which, “constitute an obvious, blatant violation, to say the least, of the articles of the Criminal Code.”
On May 30, 2014, a video report was released showing a 2006 conversation (at the 5:30 point) between Daniel Estulin, author of The True Story of the Bilderberg Group, and a Bilderberg member who admits that during the next 12 – 18 months, the Bilderberg Group is going to bring the stock market back up to 1998-1999 levels, to get all the suckers to invest what little money they have left over, then they will make the bottom drop out of the economy and destroy the economy.
On July 1, 2014, the Georgia Side Carry Protection Act went into effect, expanding the number of places where guns could legally be allowed, including bars, churches, schools, and government buildings. Yet, the mayor of Atlanta almost immediately issued an order that firearms would not be allowed in any city facility, in violation of state law. One month earlier, the mayor had attended the Bilderberg Group meeting.
The Bilderberg Group Controls U.S. Presidential Elections —
Ex-President Bill Clinton (a CFR and TC) was also hand selected to be leader of the free world after attending a meeting in 1991 where he was asked his opinion on NAFTA. “There, David Rockefeller told (him) why the North American Free Trade Agreement… was a Bilderberg priority and that the group needed him to support it.
The next year, Clinton was elected president,” according to the author of The True Story of the Bilderberg Group. Clinton was inaugurated on January 20, 1993, and NAFTA, which will be the precursor to a “North American Union,” was implemented the following year on January 1.
On May 21, 2008, it was announced that Former Fannie Mae CEO, Bilderberg luminary, and top corporate elitist James A. Johnson would select Democratic candidate Barack Obama’s running mate for the 2008 election and in turn potentially act as kingmaker for America’s future President.
During the June 2008 Bilderberg meeting in Northern Virginia, the press lost track of the whereabouts of both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Reports subsequently suggested that the two had got together for a “private meeting” in Northern Virginia, which almost certainly meant they had both attended that year’s Bilderberg confab.
A year later at the 2009 Bilderberg meeting in Greece, Obama officials delivered private briefings to Bilderberg elitists, according to reports.
Bilderberg has a proven history of acting in a kingmaker capacity. Both Bill Clinton and Tony Blair attended Bilderberg meetings in the early 90’s before becoming President and Prime Minister respectively.
At the 2008 Bilderberg Group in June, presidential candidate Barack Obama was anointed to be the next President of the United States. To hide the fact that he was attending the Bilderberg meeting, he had campaign events scheduled in two different cities. Since the press followed him everywhere he went, he had them sequestered on a plane where they couldn’t find out where Obama was really going.
Prior to the 2008 election, at least seven Secret Service vehicles entered the Westfields Marriott, the site of the 2008 Bilderberg conference. Internal sources confirmed that both presidential candidates, Barack Obama and John McCain (a CFR), were in attendance for at least one meeting.
According to an April 12, 2012 report, the Bilderberg Group might have had a decisive role in picking Mitt Romney’s running mate, continuing a recent trend in which the secretive cabal has had a direct influence on the U.S. presidential election. The article states that both President Obama and Hillary Clinton attended the April 2012 Summit of the Americas in Colombia to meet with over 30 other heads of state. They were joined by Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), who was being touted as a potential VP having previously endorsed Mitt Romney. Few senators attended, and Rubio flew commercial to attend.
Rubio’s foreign jaunt is reminiscent of a similar occurrence made by another potential vice presidential pick back in 2004, John Edwards. Edwards gave a speech at the 2004 Bilderberg conference, that impressed Bilderberg elitists Henry Kissinger and David Rockefeller (a CFR and TC). The speech Edwards gave was seen as one reason John Kerry chose him. At the time, Edwards was in hot competition against around two dozen other serious contenders for the number two spot. Bilderberg’s approval of his policies after his impressive speech swung the decision. Edwards was picked in a last minute change of decision after it appeared as though Dick Gephardt was going to secure the position. The New York Post even reported that Gephardt had been chosen and “Kerry-Gephardt” stickers were being placed on campaign vehicles before being removed when Edwards was announced as Kerry’s number two.
Bilderberg’s hand in deciding Vice-Presidential candidates for three U.S. elections running for both Democrats and Republicans underscores the fact that the group’s influence stretches beyond the partisan divide.
THE FUTURE ACCORDING TO THE BILDERBERG GROUP —
The Bilderberg Group steered Western genius to create the internet, but use it as a control grid.
The world the Bilderberg Group is now implementing is one in which corporations have a lot more power than presidents and prime ministers. The plans for this were discussed at the 1968 Bilderberg Group meeting. The person who led the discussion was the Undersecretary for Economic Affairs George Wall, who served under Presidents Kennedy and Johnson.
Currently, the world is run by monetary systems, not national credit systems. This is not a desirable system. Each sovereign nation state should have their own credit system which is the system of their own currency. This is the possibility of productive non-inflationary credit created by the state, which is firmly stated in the U.S. Constitution. This was excluded from the Maastricht Treaty as a method of determining financial and economic policy when the EU was created.
In Europe, governments are subject to control by private banking interests called independent banking systems. These institutions have the power to regulate governments and dictate terms to governments. The supposed independence of the European Central Bank is the decisive control mechanism for private financial interests which is destroying Europe and installed as an authoritative instrument against an economic policy of sovereign governments oriented toward the general welfare.
This system originated in the Dark Ages in the 14th century, and was defeated. Yet, the Bilderberg Group keeps trying to bring it back. They are trying to destroy every nation state in the world and create a pan-world economic order, which they call World Company Limited, at the expense of nation states, independent countries, and peoples of nations.
They want us poor so they can control us.
Detroit is the model for what the Bilderberg Group wants to do the entire world.
Zero growth is a short-term goal of the Bilderberg Group because they don’t want people to have any wealth. Notice how many publications refer to zero growth.
The Bilderberg Group is planning on advancing their long standing agenda to centralize power into a one world political federation with the passage of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), which was undoubtedly a central topic of discussion at the 2014 meeting.
The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) represents an integral component of Bilderberg’s attempt to rescue the unipolar world by creating a “world company,” initially a free trade area, which would connect the United States with Europe. Just as the European Union started as a mere free trade area and was eventually transformed into a political federation which controls upwards of 50 per cent of its member states’ laws and regulations with total contempt for national sovereignty and democracy, TTIP is designed to accomplish the same goal, only on a bigger scale.
The deal is being spearheaded by Obama’s U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman (a CFR), a Wall Street insider. Froman is simultaneously helping to build another block of this global government, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which is a similar project involving Asian countries.
Bilderberg will discuss fears that Putin is intent on constructing an alternative world order based around the BRICS countries, a “multi-polar” system that would devastate the dollar as the world reserve currency and also heavily dilute the current US-EU-NATO power axis.
Bilderberg is moving itself into a new hybrid leviathan, with Google as the new vehicle for policy implementation. A new generation has emerged, aligning itself with the good old boys at Bilderberg. The key players now taking control of this probable “Googleberg” construct are the spawns of the older members who are certainly aware that if the ancient agenda is to endure, a merger with the new guard needs to be established.
One such key player who has presumably been offered the steering wheel in both policy setting- and operational activities is Constantijn van Oranje-Nassau. He is the son of former queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, and grandson of Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, a former Nazi and founder of the Bilderberg Group. His benefactor in the world of global governance, EU Commissioner Neelie Kroes, attended all Bilderberg meetings from 2006 onward- and since 2011 has been European commissioner for the digital agenda. Kroes, who is right up there with Henry Kissinger and David Rockefeller, is now handing over some of the responsibilities to a new generation of technocrats. Not very surprising then that Van Orange has recently been appointed by Kroes to head up her commission cabinet.
Kroes’ agenda as commissioner and dedicated Bilderberg member has been from the very onset to create and expand a mandatory electronic ID system for all citizens within the EU. In 2012 Kroes announced that a common “electronic signature”- a single authenticating ID- should safeguard access to the Internet, online data and commerce- described on May 23, 2012 as, “nothing short of an attempt to phase in a Mark of the Beast system, and a prominent Bilderberg attendee is behind the scheme.” It should be noted that such a common digital signature, used by all people within the EU, is destined for worldwide expansion: “According to EurActiv.com, Neelie Kroes would later “widen the scope of the current Directive by including also ancillary authentication services that complement e-signatures, like electronic seals, time/date stamps, etc,” as the supra-national body attempts to corral more nations into participation.”
In the 2005 book, The True Story of the Bilderberg Group, the author clarifies the ties between the RAND Corporation and these global entities: “The interlocking leadership between the trustees at RAND, and the Ford, Rockefeller, and Carnegie foundations is a classic case of Bilderberg modus operandi. The Ford Foundation gave one million dollars to RAND in 1952, at a time when the president of the Ford Foundation was simultaneously the chairman of RAND.”
RAND plays a key role in developing technologies that may be used by intelligence agencies who in turn want to get rid of certain non-compliant regimes. In a RAND document from 2012 titled Using Social Media to Gauge Iranian Public Opinion and Mood After the 2009 Election the authors describe collecting thousands of tweets from the Iranian people in the months following the Iranian elections of 2009. The think tank complained about the shortcomings of just scanning through Iranian blogs and such. In order to assess the Iranian zeitgeist, RAND turned to an extraordinary computer-program called LIWC: Because the methods used by RAND were retrospective in nature, the authors envision using this and other software for monitoring of international conflicts “as they unfold”:. “A final way to extend the current methodology is to build a real-time tracking tool for social media texts. Such a tool could automatically download texts as they are posted, run them through a parsing algorithm, and place them into a database for processing through LIWC (or other software). Using such a tool, it would be possible to view and analyze patterns in written texts almost as quickly as they unfold. Given the policy relevance of our findings, these recommendations for validation and extensions of the methodology illustrate the potential of analyzing social media to understand public mood and opinion in various populations of interest.”
Studies such as these should not give on the impression that these monitoring and surveillance technologies are being used without the consent of corporations like Twitter, Google and Facebook- nor have they been hijacked at some point. On the contrary, as has become clear from countless “incidents” where these corporations have been caught censoring information, they are an active player within the technocratic architecture, set up from their very beginnings by globalist money. As Google Ideas illustrates, already hybrid connections between Google and the US government are being strengthened. According to several Stratford e-mails released by Wikileaks in March of 2012, Google Ideas’ current director Jared Cohen was presumably working for the White House as he attempted to fire up the spark of regime change. The Brookings Insititute, partially funded by George Soros (a CFR), valued Google Ideas as “the best new think tank established in the last 18 months.” Such accolade arguably suggests that Google Ideas is expected to be a major player in the near future.”
Brookings, an extremely influential think tank advising policymakers within the U.S. government, also use their academically preconditioned brains to think about using Google, Twitter and Facebook as tools to achieve regime change in dissenting nations. As their document Which Path To Persia demonstrates, the plans for such operations are already being contemplated. In chapter 7 of the manuscript titled “Inspiring an Insurgency”, it examines the possibility of propagandizing the Iranian people into helping out the globalists loot their nation, stating “U.S. media and propaganda outlets could highlight group grievances and showcase rival leaders.”
The merging of Bilderberg’s post WW2-style corporate complex with technocratic giants will now accelerate an agenda that has been long in the making. By Benito Mussolini’s definition of fascism, that’s what it is. “Fascism”, Mussolini wrote, “should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.” Already in the works for decades this construct, or governance structure- merging big government with big corporations- is now taking a decisive digital leap with Bilderberg 2.0 which, by Mussolini’s definition, equals a new and enhanced version of the same old fascism.
The Bilderberg-Google merger is being conducted under the stewardship of Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt (a CFR), a regular Bilderberg attendee. Google’s annual Zeitgeist conference, which has been based at the Grove since 2007, immediately precedes the Bilderberg Group conference by a matter of days. According to conversations with hotel managers and others, the Grove is now a central base for Google’s agenda to control the global political and technological landscape.
The talk in the Grove centers around Google Zeitgeist, which was described by the London Independent as, “a cuddlier version of the Bilderberg Group, the supposedly shadowy network of financiers that holds a private annual assembly, recast in the image of our new tech masters.”
Bilderberg is indeed being recast as ‘Google-Berg’ – partly because of efforts on behalf of activists to tear away the veil of Bilderberg’s much cherished secrecy, and partly as a means of re-branding authoritarian, undemocratic secret gatherings of elites as trendy, liberal, feel-good philanthropic-style forums like Google Zeitgeist and TED.
Google’s growing influence within both the British and American governments is also well documented. Eric Schmidt was a campaign advisor and a major donor to Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns. He was also reportedly offered the post of Treasury Secretary within the Obama administration. In Britain, Google representatives have met no less than 23 times with Conservative Party officials since the general election in 2010. David Cameron addressed the inaugural 2006 Zeitgeist conference before going on to become Prime Minister four years later. British Chancellor George Osborne paid a visit to Zeitgeist just weeks before he also attended Bilderberg 2011.
The crossover between Zeitgeist and Bilderberg has deepened in recent years, with the London Telegraph comparing the power of the Google confab to the World Economic Forum in Davos, “attracting figures of global significance to talk and to network.”
Former US President Bill Clinton, groomed by the Bilderberg Group, has also given speeches at Zeitgeist, as has fellow Bilderberg attendee Prince Charles. Other reports described Zeitgeist as, “one of the most high-powered gatherings of business leaders, thinkers and those that are considered to generally shape the global future.”
Google is clearly positioning itself to become a force more powerful than governments in controlling and monitoring people’s behavior across the globe through all manner of different means, from cars that drive themselves (and are constantly tracked by a centralized Google database), to Google Glass which is akin to having a Google microchip in your forehead, to Google’s deep involvement in manipulating mass movements through social media as they did in Egypt and Tunisia.
The direction in which this is all heading can clearly be surmised from remarks made by Eric Schmidt himself, who has repeatedly made it clear that he thinks privacy is a relic of the past and plans to turn Google into the ultimate Big Brother that makes George Orwell’s 1984 look like a children’s fairy tale:
“We don’t need you to type at all. We know where you are. We know where you’ve been. We can more or less know what you’re thinking about.”
“I actually think most people don’t want Google to answer their questions […] They want Google to tell them what they should be doing next.”
“If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.”
“We need a [verified] name service for people,” he said. “Governments will demand it.” (Chinese-style Internet control).
“We know everything you’re doing and the government can track you.”
“We will know your position down to the foot and down to the inch over time…Your car will drive itself, it’s a bug that cars were invented before computers…you’re never lonely…you’re never bored…you’re never out of ideas.”
In numerous speeches, including those made at Google Zeitgeist, Schmidt has outlined his vision for a collectivist, permanently networked world in which individuality and privacy are ostracized and those who refuse to sign up to the new religion of transhumanism are shunned as sub-human savages. That is the primary agenda now being formulated by Google Zeitgeist luminaries in concert with the Bilderberg Group, which shares many of the same members.
Some of the issues discussed at Bilderberg 2013 directly involved Google’s plans for the future, including the following: The manufacturing revolution of 3D printing and ways to control it and prevent the democratization of production; so-called “cyber resilience,” which means more state control over the Internet. There is much talk of “Digital Wildfires” – they are scared stiff about losing control over information dissemination. Setting up a Ministry of Truth for the Internet similar to that advocated by Bill Clinton. Controlling what can be published on the Internet; and, advancing so-called “smart cities” that spy on every aspect of public behavior. Installing systems like Intellistreets that record street conversations. Rolling out the landscape of the technocracy.
What is the end game of this merger? This partnership entails the networking of powerful individuals who operate vast networks of influence. It includes banks, technology developers, CEO’s of corporations and prime ministers.
In the 2011 book How to Run the World: Charting a Course to the Next Renaissance, the author, and director of the Global Governance Initiative at the New America Foundation, outlines a vision for the future in which mega corporations, NGO’s and governments team up to govern the globe. As reported in the media, “Apart from the usual government/institutional suspects, the book includes an array of extra players in the new rulers of the world, mostly powerful NGOs such as the Gates Foundation. These players are particularly fond of the global conference circuit – from the annual bash in Davos of the World Economic Forum (WEF) to the seductively mysterious Bilderberg Group.”
An example of these individuals “fondness of the global conference circuit” is a 2009 meeting in New York at the home of Sir Paul Nurse, President of the Rockefeller Foundation. As to the secrecy of the meeting, a guest said, “They wanted to speak rich to rich without worrying anything they said would end up in the newspapers, painting them as an alternative world government.”
This is the backdrop to the Google-Berg merger. Governments are going broke. Globalist influences have broken down national borders. Tax exempt foundations and mega corporations are filling the gap.
These groups are essentially hijacking national government’s policies and advancing a top down, authoritarian system of control. In an interview, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon was asked, “Some say the emergence of super rich philanthropies like the Gates Foundation has undermined the effectiveness of the U.N. and its member organizations, like the WHO.” Moon responded, “On the contrary that is what we really want — contributions from the business community as well as philanthropies. We need to have political support, but it doesn’t give us all that we need. NGOs and philanthropies and many foundations such as Bill Gates Foundation — they’re taking a very important role…”
The Gates Foundation has successfully hijacked America’s national education policy. To demonstrate the intimate relationship that the Gates Foundation has with the Obama administration, this 2009 article points out that within the first four months of his Presidency, Obama appointed four high ranking officials from the Gates Foundation.
What will the future look like under the direction of mega corporations and philanthropic organizations? According to an article by the How to Run the World … author, “As we move into the Hybrid Age, whoever has the capacity to manage the intersection of technology, capital, and identity can become a pole of power.” As we have seen, tax exempt foundations and corporations like Google have taken on a powerful role in global affairs. Governments are increasingly taking a back seat to the influence of these groups. Some have charged that they are “monopolizing development.”
In joining with Bilderberg, Google is preparing to enter this “Hybrid Age” of advancing technology and rapidly changing geopolitical landscapes with its hands on the reigns of power. With this merger, the world is set to be shaped into a highly surveilled and planned system at the direction of unelected elitists.
In 2010 the Forum for the Future presented a vision of the future in which mega-cities are run by supercomputers and citizens lives are tightly controlled. The Forum for the Future is backed by Bank of America, Sony, the City of London Corporation, PepsiCo UK, Time Warner, and Royal Dutch Shell. Each of these entities have representatives at the Bilderberg Group.
Their vision for the future was called “Planned-Opolis”: These mega-cities will likely be based on an ongoing project in a South Korean city called New Songdo. The “U-City” will deploy so called “ubiquitous computing” technology that enables the monitoring of citizens 24/7 via pressure sensitive floors that track your walk, to computer chips that are embedded everywhere in the environment. U-cities are described as places where “…all major information systems (residential, medical, business, governmental and the like) share data, and computers (e.g., RFID, smart cards and sensor-based devices) are built into the houses, streets, bridges and office buildings.”
Bill Gates’ Microsoft Corporation is playing a key role in developing technology for New Songdo. While a large portion of the technology is being developed in the U.S., it is being tested in South Korea where there are historically less traditional, ethical and social blockades to prevent its acceptance and use.
Google chairman Eric Schmidt, who expects to be swallowing nanobots in the not too distant future, envisions life in this technological age as a streamlined and convenient existence. Google’s driverless cars, now legal in California and Nevada, will no doubt find their way into Planned-Opolis.
Are we headed to a Rollerball like future in which corporations have replaced countries? In the Hybrid Age, mega coporations will provide advanced technology to their constituents and thus gain loyalty. As we stray away from broken governments to provide security and prosperity, these entities will fill the gap. “Employees of Facebook or Google can spend their days on campuses that are effectively full-service communes; the same is happening in companies in Russia, India, and China. One day a corporate passport might afford them greater freedom of mobility than their national citizenship.”
In 2008, the Washington Post published an article titled “Washington’s Future, a History.” The Post gathered trends analysts, university heads and government officials to look into the future and develop potential scenarios. The Post depicts a future in which small scale terror attacks and angry rioters plague the streets while implantable ID chips allow government workers to pass through checkpoints unmolested. Economic decline and cyber terrorism fracture the country. In an interview, the president of the Northern Virginia Technology Council said, “Basic functions of government will be outsourced.”
The global elite are pushing the globe toward a dystopic future in which all aspects of life are in some way managed by their interests. Humanity cannot afford to blindly accept this future, no matter how attractive the propaganda might seem.
ORIGINS OF THE BILDERBERG GROUP —
The Bilderberg website says it was “Founded in 1954, Bilderberg is an annual conference designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America,” but nowhere does it mention the fact that one of the founders was Nazi SS member Prince Bernhard of Holland.
The origins of the Bilderberg Group were very heavily populated by people that came out of the World War II Nazi apparatus. Two key individuals of the Bilderberg from the beginning were Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, an SS member, who had giant hidden troves of the robbed loot of Europe, and Walter Hallstein, who was the first president of the European Commission which later became the EU, and the Nazi lawyer whose writings convinced Hitler that he had the justification necessary to create the concentration camps across Europe.
Various members of the Bilderberg Group have written numerous books on the subject, and they say that they took the ideas of Plato and other empires that came after, such as the Greek empire.
According to Alex Jones of Infowars, who has studied the Bilderberg Group extensively, “they see us as animals, and use systems of social control that they have augmented and expanded to make them more sophisticated. They have apparently decided it’s easier to be evil and not care about people, and teach us to be immoral, and have just given into what’s easy. They are trying to extinct what they call morals, because they believe they are beyond good and evil. It’s social Darwinism, and it’s their right to do anything they want, because the fact that they are dominant proves, in the scheme of evolution, that they should be in full control. Plato said to exterminate the underclasses, and that’s what the Bilderberg Group wants to do. First, they have to dumb us down and prove that we are scum before they can kill us. That’s what’s happening right now. They want a planetary government, then they will kill most of the people.”
According to an economist/geopolitical analyst, ““What has been good for Rockefeller, has been a curse for the United States. Its citizens, government and country indebted to the hilt, enslaved to his banks. The country’s industrial force lost to overseas in consequence of strong dollar policies, pursued for bankers not the country.”
MEMBERS OF THE BILDERBERG GROUP —
There is no published membership list of the Bilderberg Group. On its website, there is a list of the Steering Committee members of the Bilderberg Group. Apparently the Steering Committee controls what the Bilderberg Group does.
Bilderberg Group Meeting Attendees Lists —
Not everyone that attends a meeting is actually a member of the Bilderberg Group. Some people are invited to inform the members on specific current topics that will be discussed at the meeting. Also, not everyone that attends a meeting is on the “official” attendees list.

AGENDAS OF THE BILDERBERG GROUP MEETINGS —
Bilderberg 2014 —
Inside sources have confirmed that the 2014 conference will center around how to derail a global political awakening that threatens to hinder Bilderberg’s long standing agenda to centralize power into a one world political federation. They are planning on advancing this goal with the passage of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), which will undoubtedly be a central topic of discussion at this year’s meeting.
Another topic that will be discussed is whether privacy still exists. Just imagine discussing if privacy exists with the people that have been destroying it as fast as they can: Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google, who has said, “We know everything you’re doing and the government can track you. We will know your position down to the foot and down to the inch over time”; Peter Thiel, board member of Facebook and founder of Palantir Technologies, the data analysis and surveillance software company co-funded by the CIA; Keith Alexander, the recently replaced head of the National Security Agency, known for his motto “Collect it All,” and ‘Let’s not worry about the law. Let’s just figure out how to get the job done’; and Sir John Sawers, the head of MI6 (Britain’s version of the CIA). Maybe they’re trying to determine if there’s any privacy left to destroy.
The following is the “official” agenda of key topics for discussion at the 2014 Bilderberg Group meeting:
- Is the economic recovery sustainable?
- Who will pay for the demographics?
- Does privacy exist?
- How special is the relationship in intelligence sharing?
- Big shifts in technology and jobs
- The future of democracy and the middle class trap
- China’s political and economic outlook
- The new architecture of the Middle East
- What next for Europe?
- Current events
1. Nuclear diplomacy and the deal with Iran currently in the making.
The club has long been cautious of a possible alliance between Russia, China and Iran. The deal that would lift Western pressure from the Islamic Republic over its nuclear program would affect this possibility.
2. Gas deal between Russia and China.
It came amid a serious political crisis in Ukraine, which threatens Russia’s supply of natural gas to European nations. Moscow has diversified its gas trade by sealing a long-term contract with Beijing. Potentially, China may replace the EU as the prime energy trade partner for Russia, a situation which strengthens Moscow’s position in Ukraine by undermining Washington’s effort to isolate Russia and Kiev’s leverage through its control of transit gas pipelines. Also, how this and other long-term projects between the two countries will likely reduce dependency on the U.S. dollar as a reserve currency.
3. Rise of nationalist moods in Europe.
The agenda was formed before the latest European Parliament elections, which cast a spotlight on the trend. Populist eurosceptic parties are winning the hearts of Europeans from the UK to Greece to Hungary, dealing a blow to the union’s unity. A nationally driven and divided Europe would be reluctant to take globalization for granted. Also, the recent victories of the populist United Kingdom Independence Party, which opposes the European Union, is particularly concerning to the Bilderberg Group because the EU, and its Euro currency, were formulated by the group at its second annual meeting in 1955.
4. EU internet privacy regulations.
Edward Snowden’s exposure of the scale of electronic surveillance on the part of the US National Security Agency and its allies worldwide sparked a major protest from privacy-seeking people. European politicians can’t ignore the calls to protect people’s communication from snooping, which potentially makes data collection more difficult. At least not immediately, as indicated by the apparent scaling down of Germany’s investigation into the NSA’s alleged surveillance. Also, what they mean for the United States.
5. Cyberwarfare and its potential effect on internet freedoms.
The destructive potential of cyber attacks is growing rapidly as reliance on the internet in all aspects of life rises. But the threat of state-sponsored hacker attacks is what some governments may use as a pretext for clamping down on the internet, undermining its role as a medium for the sake of security.
6. From Ukraine to Syria, Barack Obama’s foreign policy.
Critics of the U.S. president blame him for betraying America’s leadership overseas, citing failures to defend American interests in Syria and lately in Ukraine. Obama’s newly announced doctrine calls on scaling down reliance on military force and using diplomacy and collective action instead. Bilderberg members will discuss whether this policy is doomed.
7. Climate change.
This is a regular topic for many high-ranking discussions, not only the Bilderberg conference in Denmark. People suspicious of the elites call climate change a euphemism for the artificial deindustrialization of some nations, with the goal of keeping the global economy under the control of transnational corporations and the expense of potential hubs of economic growth.
