As you are reading this post, the powerful but secretive global elite group, The Bilderberg, are having their annual meeting.
The Bilderberg Group customarily meet in some European country or another: France, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Denmark, England, Scotland, Norway. But not this year.
Adrian Salbuchi reports for RT that this week, from May 30 to June 3, the Bilderbergs are convening at the Westfield Marriott Hotel in Chantilly, Virginia — just a stone’s throw from Washington, D.C.
The last time Bilderberg met in the United States was in 2008. Like this year, the 2008 Bilderberg Group also met in Chantilly, Virginia, at the Westfield Marriott Hotel. Like this year, 2008 was an election year – and the world got Obama. This year they’re back in the US again. Will they decide who America’s next president will be?
When the Bilderbergs met in 2008, from June 5 to 8, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were neck-in-neck in the battle for the Democratic Party’s presidential candidacy. On June 5 of that year, both Barack and Hillary mysteriously “disappeared” for some hours “somewhere in the DC area,” their agendas blocked out.
The media kept mum about that, save for an Associated Press report on the campaign trail saying that “reporters traveling with Obama sensed something might be happening between the pair (i.e. Obama and Hillary) when they arrived at Dulles International Airport after an event in Northern Virginia and Obama was not aboard the airplane. Asked at the time about the Illinois Senator’s whereabouts, Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs smiled and declined to comment.” (The AP dispatch “Obama and Clinton meet, discuss uniting Democrats” is, strangely, “no longer available” on their website).
Two days later, Hillary withdrew from the race and Obama became the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate. Did Bilderberg make Hillary “an offer she couldn’t refuse” to clear the way for Obama to the White House? Did they promise her that she would become his Secretary of State?
A favorite Bilderberg method consists of inviting wannabe future heads of state to their meetings to determine whether they will go along with their agenda. George H. W. Bush attended their 1985 meeting, Bill Clinton attended their 1991 meeting, Tony Blair in 1993, and Romano Prodi, former head of the EU Commission, in 1999.
So what exactly is Bilderberg? It’s neither an organization nor a lobby. The “Bilderberg Meetings,” as they dub themselves in their (apparently) official website www.bilderbergmeetings.com, is a “by-invitation-only” club of around 140 very high-power people from business, finance, oil, politics, media, industry, academia and nobility who come together in a very private no-media / no cameras / extremely-tight-security surroundings to discuss… Well… there’s the rub: what exactly do they discuss?
They describe themselves as “a small, flexible, informal and off-the-record international forum in which different viewpoints can be expressed and mutual understanding enhanced. Bilderberg’s only activity is its annual Conference. At the meetings, no resolutions are proposed, no votes taken, and no policy statements issued.”
According to RT’s Adrian Salbuchi, though very high up on the Pyramid, Bilderberg is not the Global Elite’s power center. Rather, Bilderberg is a key group within a much more vast, more complex, less centralized, and highly effective Global Power Network, where they interact and overlap with other organizations, clubs, lobbies and groups, all having common economic, financial, social and (geo)political objectives in the Globalist Agenda.
This includes such key entities as the New York-based Council on Foreign Relations (long-term geopolitical planners), its London-based sister entity Royal Institute of International Affairs (aka “Chatham House”), RAND Corp., CSIS, the American Enterprise Institute (strategic affairs specialists), Tavistock Institute in London (mass psychology research), the Carnegie Endowment, and the Trilateral Commission “umbrella” entity (founded 1973 by Rockefeller / Morgan / Rothschild interests, geared to coordinating the Americas, Europe and the East).
These so-called “Think Tanks” in turn interact with consultancies like Kissinger Associates, The Carlyle Group (specializing in oil strategies and having the Bush, Bin Laden and Baker families as key shareholders), or Trilateralist Claus Schwab’s World Economic Forum.
Last year, Bilderberg Group’s attendee list looks like a Who’s Who of banking, industrial and media CEO top brass: Deutsche Bank, HSBC, CitiCorp, European Central Bank, US Federal Reserve Bank, Lazard Frères, JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Barclays, World Bank, Bank of Canada, AXA, Royal Dutch Shell, BP, Fiat, Nestle, Novartis, Coca-Cola, Airbus, Eni, Telecom Italy, ExxonMobil, Alcoa, Marks & Spencer, Die Zeit, The Economist, as well as the founders and top executives of giant Internet management and intelligence gathering companies as Google, Facebook, LinkedIn and Microsoft.
As their website points out about its meeting participants, “about one-third is from government and politics, and two-thirds from finance, industry, labour, education and communications. Participants attend Bilderberg in a private and not an official capacity.” European nobility regularly attend too, including the Dutch Queen, the Spanish King and Queen, and Norway’s Crown Prince, as do members of the Rockefeller and Rothchild families.
Bilderberg’s high-power participants interact with, and are cross-represented on, the global private power web through membership and directorship in the Trilateral Commission, CFR, AEI, governments, corporations, banks, media and others.
As if the Rockefeller and Rothchild families, separately, aren’t powerful enough, Daniel Schäfer reports for FT (Financial Times), May 29, 2012, that they are uniting:
“The two powerful business dynasties in Europe and the US will come together after Lord Jacob Rothschild’s listed investment trust and Rockefeller Financial Services agreed to form a strategic partnership. RIT Capital Partners is to buy a 37 per cent stake in the Rockefeller’s wealth advisory and asset management group for an undisclosed sum, giving Lord Rothschild’s London-listed trust a much sought-after foothold in the US. The transatlantic union brings together David Rockefeller, 96, and Lord Rothschild, 76 – two family patriarchs whose personal relationship spans five decades.”
If you think I’m tinfoil-hat crazy, then I’m in good company.
Gerard Batten, a member of the European Parliament for London for the United Kingdom Independence Party, asked the question that should have been asked by every honest reporter (if there is one) across the world: “Why are the media so completely and totally disinterested in the yearly meeting of a group of the world’s most powerful and influential people?”
In a speech on September 12, 2011, at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France, Batten said:
“What other summit of world leaders in politics, finance and business would go completely unreported in the mainstream media such as the BBC?
It’s impossible not to reach the conclusion that the non-reporting of these events is anything other than a conspiracy between the [Bilderberg] organizers and the media.
It merely confirms the belief of many that the hidden agenda and purpose of the Bilderberg Group is to bring about undemocratic world government.”

Confirming Batten’s thesis is none other than MSNBC’s useless anchor Lawrence O’Donnell, who admits that he’s “way too lazy'” to look into the activities of the Bilderberg!
