The Bilderberg Group meets once every year. The last meeting, at the time of this writing, was held in June 2016 at the Taschenbergpalais hotel that is located in Dresden. Up to 150 of the world’s wealthiest and most powerful political leaders attend the annual event. The attendees include royalty, presidents, prime ministers, chief executives of major international conglomerates, media moguls, and world bankers. The first Bilderberg meeting was held during 1954.
The organization was founded with the intent to create powerful connections between European countries and North Americans. The meeting is a secretive, informal discussion about global trends with open communication between the elite members of the world who have massive influence in world affairs. No statements of any kind are allowed to be made to the press regarding the proceedings or what is talked about at the meeting. There are no meeting minutes taken and no reports of the discussions or official statement about the discussions is produced or made. Anything learned at the meeting can be freely used by any of the members; however, no one is permitted to talk about it. More than 400 heavily armed guards are there protect the attendees.
The event space is hardened with physical barricades and high levels of security. It is this level of high security combined with the extreme secrecy, which makes the conspiracy theorists go wild with speculation about what they actually do at the Bilderberg meetings. Only those who are invited are permitted to attend the meeting. Everyone invited sees a major career boost after attending a Bilderberg meeting. Bill Clinton attended while he was the Governor of Arkansas and within a year he was President of the United States. Tony Blair became Prime Minister of the UK, four years after going to his first Bilderberg meeting. The co-founders of the Bilderberg Group were two historical figures with checkered backgrounds. They were Prince Bernhard from the Netherlands and Józef Retinger who was a political advisor, originally from Poland, who worked with the Vatican. Even though throughout his later adult life, up until his death in 1984, Prince Bernhard claimed he was never a Nazi. A historian, Annejet van der Zijl, found documents at the Humboldt University in Berlin, which prove Prince Bernhard was indeed a Nazi Party member until 1934 when he left school to work for the huge German chemical company named IG Farben. IG Farben did atrocious things in support of the Nazis including making the poisonous gas used to kill people in the German death camps. Józef Retinger was a secret spy for the Vatican.
He was expelled from allied countries for his activities in association with the Jesuits. He later went on to create the Council of Europe during 1949, which became part of the foundational movement, which eventually led to the formation of the European Union. The Bilderberg Group publishes on its website a simple list of the items that will be discussed at an upcoming meeting, without giving any further details. For the 2016 meeting here is the list of the topics up for discussion: China, current events, cybersecurity, Europe (growth, immigrants, reform, unity and vision), geopolitics of energy and commodities, lower classes and the middle class, Middle East, Russia, technological innovation, US political climate, economy, debt, growth, and reform.
The Bilderberg Group also publishes a list of the attendees. By comparing the attendees with the proposed agenda is it easy to see the potential conflicts of interest. A high probability must exist of shady “back-room” deals and influence peddling. Hilary Clinton always attends and she has received millions of dollars in “speaker’s fees” from other attendees. The Chairman of BP, Carl-Henric Svanberg, and the group chief executive of BP, Robert Dudley, the vice-chairman of Galp Energia from Portugal, and the CEO of Royal Dutch Shell all met with finance ministers and top political leaders.
After the Bilderberg Group meeting, they do not report back to their respective governments about what happened. Other attendees of the 2016 meeting included former European Commission President José Manuel Barroso, former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, Christine Lagarde who is the Director of the International Monetary Fund, German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen, German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble, King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, a former head of the CIA, General David Petraeus, and a former head of MI6, Sir John Sawers. Members of the Bilderberger Group are some of the richest, most powerful, and most famous people in the world. Attendees from past Bilderberg meetings include: Angela Merkel, Beatrix of the Netherlands, Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Carl Bildt Charles, Prince of Wales, Charlie Rose, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, David Cameron, Dora Bakoyannis, Enoch Powell, Fouad Ajami, Frank McKenna, Fredrik Reinfeldt, Geir Haarde, George P. Shultz, George Soros, George Stephanopoulos, Georgios Alogoskoufis, Gerald Ford, Gordon Brown, Gordon Campbell, Guido Westerwelle, Haakon, Crown Prince of Norway, Harald V of Norway, Henry Kissinger, Jeff Bezos, John Edwards, John Kerr, John Kerry, Jon Huntsman, Jr., José Manuel Barroso, Juan Carlos I of Spain, Kathleen Sebelius, Lawrence Summers, Lester B. Pearson), Margaret Thatcher, Mario, Draghi, Mark Sanford, Paul Volcker, Peter Mandelson, Peter Sutherland, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Queen Sofía of Spain, Rick Perry, Robert Zoellick, Ruud Lubbers, Sandy Berger, Timothy Geithner, Tom Daschle and William F. Buckley, Jr.
The Bilderberg Group is a conspiracy theorist’s dream scenario. Since no one except the attendees of the Bilderberg meetings knows what is said or done, anything imaginable might be going on. Author David Ike says the “Bilderbergers” are shapeshifting lizards doing the work of the Illuminati. He imagines this group as a potentially satanic cabal that controls everything that happens in the world, which has the intention of enslaving the entire human race. Alex Jones from Infowars consistently rants on air about the evil of this group. From his point of view, everything which appears to be happening in the world from normal methods is actually the results of behind-the-scenes manipulation by members of this group. There are historical precedents for some of what he says, such as the “false flag” event at the Gulf of Tonkin that brought the USA into the war in Vietnam. There is no question whatsoever that the members of the Bilderberg Group are extremely powerful and can do many things, especially if they coordinate their efforts. Infowars reported that the Bilderberg Group wants to create an Internet ID and a global tax on online financial transactions and travel by air. The justification for the Internet ID is that it would improve cybersecurity, reduce fraud, and make it easier to receive government services. Critics of the plan say that the Internet ID is a virtual passport, which would remove the ability to obtain Internet services anonymously. This “big brother” way to track everything a person does online will make political dissent impossible. The plans for an Internet ID are similar to the plans to use microchips embedded in the skin as a way of personal identification.
Any such plan that forces these types of technology on people is an invasion of their personal privacy. Therefore, this idea should be resisted by those who like freedom of speech and do not want information about everything they do online to be used in ways that they do not approve. Paul Warburg founded the Council on Foreign Relations during 1921 and David Rockefeller founded the Trilateral Commission. These organizations are similar to the Bilderberg Group. David Rockefeller is a member of all three. The current members of these groups and the previous ones make it easy to see how powerful they are.
Members include almost all the U.S. Presidential candidates from both political parties, congresspersons, senators, and the top officials at the CIA, FBI, and the NSA. Members include the captains of industry, leaders of defense organizations, Supreme Court justices, generals, and admirals. Just like the Bilderberg Group, the extent and reach of the powerful members of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission have influenced the globe for decades. It makes very little difference who is the President in the White House because these power brokers are the ones really in charge. In most cases, without their approval and support, there is no way to get elected. Another co-founder of the Council on Foreign Relations was Edward Mandell House. He was the chief advisor to President Woodrow Wilson. Two things happened of significance by the influence of Edward Mandell House. During the December 1913 holiday season, when many of the lawmakers were not working, the Federal Reserve Act was quietly passed, which gave the power to create money to the bankers. Following this, 16th Amendment was ratified during February 1914. This Amendment created the federal income tax in order to have tax revenues to pay the debt for the money loaned to the government by the bankers. Americans have these powerful men to blame for creating the massive U.S. debt and for U.S. tax. The common goal of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderberg Group is the creation of a one world government with a central global financial system. The two groups work together.
The Council on Foreign Relations works on the U.S. side with the Bilderberg Group working on the European side. During the 1992 Bilderberg Group meeting, Henry Kissinger said: “Today, Americans would be outraged if UN troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow, they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or imagined, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all people of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil….individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by their world government.” There have been many instances in history where false information has been used to start wars. One recent one was when the false threat of Saddam Hussein having weapons of mass destruction was used as the pretense for the Iraq war. One way to control large segments of a population is to keep them in fear and wanting protection from the police and/or military. In order to create a new world economy, the Bilderbergers believe that they need to destroy the separate national ones. They plan to achieve this by causing either a long depression that generates decades of decline and poverty or they plan to use sudden intense economic shocks. These shocks will be similar to the 2006 American housing market collapse. This will allow them to re-set national economies into a new alignment with reduced national sovereignty and increased efficiency. Another example of this process is what is happening in Greece. The economy is in shambles. The country is overloaded with debts it cannot pay. This now puts the bankers in charge. The bankers now have the intense leverage that they can use to get the government of Greece to go along with the banker’s recommended “austerity” programs. The Bilderberg Group understands that the destruction of the U.S. dollar is necessary in order to replace it with a world currency. The bankers have been eroding the value of the U.S. dollar for a very long time. A dollar is worth less than 2% of what a U.S. dollar was worth one hundred years ago. U.S. government officials have been participants in this process, making a mountain of debt that can never be paid back.
At some point, it is a mathematical certainty that the U.S. government’s debt will be so huge that it will not be possible to pay the interest on the debt. At that point, the U.S. government will be forced to default on paying the debt and America will be bankrupt. The U.S. dollar will become worthless in such a scenario and that will be the chance to introduce a new global currency. The enormous growth in the global population and its continued increase is not sustainable over the long term. One way the Bilderberg Group can reduce the human population is by causing pandemics. Biological agents can be intentionally used to cause a major outbreak of illness, which kills millions. Many of the super elite have so little concern for the masses that they consider this the same as culling a herd of animals. Pandemics may be caused by terrorist groups and also be caused by natural processes. No matter what the cause, as long as the elite can survive the outbreak, along with their friends and families, this is all they care about. A Bilderberg member, Richard Salant, who was President of CBS News during the 1960s and the 1970s, explained the Bilderberg Group’s influence on media. Salant said, “Our job is not to give people what they want, but what we decide they should have.” Media is controlled very heavily by very few companies. Governments actively participate in the censorship of media, as well as promote disinformation if it serves their purpose. The Rockefellers, through their Bilderberg contacts, which include the CEOs of major media companies, gained enormous influence over the media. It is rather hypocritical that these executives from the major news media attend the Bilderberg conferences because they are prohibited from reporting on it. The censorship goals of the Bilderberg Group are to make views popular by hiding the group’s real intent so that these views become public policy. After that, they can pressure governmental leaders and push them in the directions they want them to follow. These are propaganda campaigns that are carefully designed to create public opinion in order to protect corporate power. The Bilderberg Group starts its process to build its empire by the creation of Trade Zones and Trade Agreement that benefits the multinational corporations. They have little interest in any improving the economic levels for the lower classes as long as there are enough of them are able to buy their products.
The jobs all move to the places with the lowest wages, no benefits, and bad working conditions. This allows the multinational corporations to maximize profits. A simple device like a smartphone that costs around US$20 to make, sells at retail for up to US$300. It was this type of strategy that made Apple one of the most valuable companies in the world, even though factory workers in Apple’s factory in China are jumping out of the windows to commit suicide because of the heavy workload. Apple put up suicide nets outside under the factory windows, yet the working conditions did not change because profits for Apple are soaring. In the wealthier countries, they keep the consumerism going by issuing credit cards to the consumers. This credit card debt and the high-interest rates one has to pay for it, enslaves the average consumer, just like the Bilderberg bankers enslaved the governments. One clear mission of the Bilderberg Group is the end of national sovereignty. In the historical past, the Native America Nation was annihilated. The formation of the European Union came about in part by the tremendous influence that the Bilderberg Group members had over their home countries to get them to agree to give up their sovereign rights. Once member countries join the EU, they no longer have the same level of self-determination. EU regulations are issued and every member country must follow them. There is no open public debate and no voting on any issue. Some of the EU regulations can be unfairly balanced giving more benefits to certain member countries than others. This was the main cause of the Brexit movement, which resulted in the UK leaving the EU. For example, the British fishing industry was decimated by EU regulations, which caused it to lose abut 60% of the fishing industry in the UK. Even though the Bilderberg Group’s goal is one world government, they realize this can only be achieved one step at a time. They have already worked on this goal for decades. The steady progress can be seen by studying the historical timeline of the things that led to the formation of the European Union (EU), which are: December 1951, six nations formed the European Coal and Steel Community. March 1957, six nations signed the Treaty of Rome to form the European Economic Community (ECC) and a second treaty to form the European Atomic Energy Commission (EAEC). October 1957, the European Court of Justice was formed to handle trade disputes. May 1960, seven nations formed the European Free Trade Association. July 1967 saw a merger of the EAEC, the ECSC, with the European Economic Community (EEC). During 1968, the European Customs Union was formed to abolish duties and establish uniform import taxes for EEC nations.
In 1978, the European Currency Unit was created (later changed to the Euro). The February 1992 Maastricht Treaty creating the EU on November 1, 1993, and Euros began circulating on January 2002. Euros are now the official currency of 16 of the 27 EU states. It took over 50 years for the members of the EU to lose their sovereignty. Up to 80% of European laws now are created by nameless, unelected bureaucrats working in or Luxembourg or Brussels. The Bilderbergers are extremely patient in achieving their long terms goals. David Rockefeller starting working on the North American Union during the 1980s. He met with Ronald Reagan along with George Schultz and FDA Chairman Paul Volker. The first step tried for beginning to create the NAU was to merge Canada with the United States. However, the merger would be without Quebec, where most of the people speak French, because Rockefeller thought that was problematic. They got a Bilderberg-friendly Canadian Prime Minister elected. The plan would have succeeded except the referendum for Quebec to separate from the rest of Canada was narrowly defeated in 1995. The vote was 50.56% for Quebec to stay as part of Canada and 49.44% for secession. This defeat did not stop the plans. They started with a trade agreement and in 1994 created the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Then, during March 2005 at President George Bush’s ranch, a secret meeting was held between Bush, Mexico’s President Vincente Fox, and Canada’s Prime Minister Paul Martin. They signed the agreement to form the North American Union (NAU). Their plan was to surreptitiously create the NAU without involving the legislation of any of the three countries and enforce the merger plan with military force if necessary. They planned to change the currency of the newly borderless North America to the “Amero.” The secret plans somehow leaked and once this effort became public knowledge, the plans stopped; at least, for the moment. By taking a look at the names for the June 2016 Bilderberg meeting, it is easy to see that the alignment of the Bilderberg Group was behind Hillary Clinton’s run for president of the United States. Senator Lindsey Graham who is anti-Trump was at that Bilderberg meeting along with Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump’s campaign included many speeches against globalism and getting rids of what he called bad trade deals like NAFTA. Trump also promised to build a big wall to separate the USA from Mexico, which is exactly the opposite of what the Bilderbergers want. Since Trump did not have to go to the Bilderberg Group for campaign financing or connections, he was able to say such things. Two weeks after the June 2016 Bilderberg meeting, the Bilderberg Group faced another setback when the UK voted to leave the EU. The Bilderberg Group is in the process of regrouping, yet certainly has not been stopped with continuing plans to achieve their goals.
The Bilderberg Group supported the formation of the EU and plans to do more. The plans to form the North American Union that would join Canada, the USA, and Mexico, have changed now that President Trump came into power with the expressed intent to stop such plans. President Trump does not have any idea how strong the Bilderberg Group is and their plans will continue to develop, albeit slowly. This group is not easy to stop even if some of the founders are dead. The Bilderberg Group is constantly working with increasing its ability to effect global culture. Other groups know the value of this as well. The Chinese have made significant investments in Hollywood in order to gain enough influence over the content in blockbuster movies. An example of this is the film “The Martian” where Matt Damian plays an astronaut that is stranded on Mars and the Chinese help with the rescue. The Bilderberg Group knows these techniques very well. This is not about censorship, which is excluding content, this method is about having the influence to include content in major blockbuster films that are seen by millions worldwide. Some of the top Hollywood film directors are of interest to the Bilderberg Group. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon is also a member. Amazon is building out a digital streaming system for television and films as well as producing their own content. Being able to guide global culture is a form of subtle mind control that can be very effective. The Bilderberg Group, started by an ex-Nazi, likes to see the continuation of perpetual wars because they are so profitable and they can fund the needs of both sides. Even if a nuclear war breaks out, there are huge underground cities that are completely self-contained, where the elite could live safely. In the recent air strike on Syria by the USA, 29 Tomahawk missiles were used. Those missiles cost about US$1 million each. They are made by Raytheon. To replace them Raytheon would get a re-order for missiles; a contract worth $29 million. Estimates of the cost of the Mother of All Bombs (MOAB) are around $16 million apiece. US$ billions are spent on wars and the Bilderberg Group members benefit tremendously. The USA has been in so many wars since WW II because it is big business. Ultimately, the main goal for members of the Bilderberg Group is to keep amazing huge sums of money and gain increasing power to eventually dominate the entire globe.
David Rockefeller, who was the last patriarch of the Rockefeller family died on March 20, 2017. He was the world’s oldest billionaire when he died at the age of 101. He died peacefully in his sleep at his home in Pocantico Hills. He certainly did not leave behind a peaceful world, thanks to the efforts of the Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, and many other efforts. Other very powerful Bilderbergers are very old. Henry Kissinger who was Secretary of State under the Richard Nixon administration is 93 years old. George P. Schulz who was Secretary of State under the Ronald Reagan administration is 96. George Soros is 86 years old. Who will fill the power vacuum when all these old school Bilderbergers are gone? That remains to be seen. The long-term goal for the Bilderberg Group is a borderless world, with no nation states, ruled by a one world government that is controlled by the super elite. It is not going to be easy to achieve this because of the serious wealth inequality, which causes all the money to flow to the top tenth of one percent, greatly harms the middle and lower classes.
This causes social unrest. Moreover, the massive immigration into Europe, moving from one EU country to another, and the resulting clash of cultures arising from this has destabilized many parts of Europe. The reaction to these negative things that the Bilderbergers want caused a strong rise in nationalism. This is responsible for Brexit to be followed perhaps by other countries desiring to leave the EU. Nevertheless, the goal of the Bilderberg Group is one world government with one global marketplace. The people are to be kept in check by a one world army and use a single global currency controlled by a one world bank. The end goal is no less than complete world domination. Every year, the Bilderberg Group’s secret meeting advances this agenda steadily towards this goal, even when facing setbacks like the Presidency of Donald Trump.
