Meet the Bilderberg Group

World Powers Meet

Have you heard about the shadow government that is the real power behind most of the major decisions in the world today? This secretive group is rumored to actually make the key decisions that affect all aspects of our lives including the price of gasoline, how the prices of stock and commodity markets will be manipulated, and even which countries will be attacked or invaded.

This is the Bilderberg Group, the who's who of political leaders, international bankers, and the power brokers of world commerce.

Every year, over 100 of these people meet secretly to discuss and even create global policy. Most of the members are believed to come from Western Europe and the United States.

Regulars include names like Rockefeller and Rothschild, although guests have included Margaret Thatcher, Bill Clinton (even before he became President), Bill and Melinda Gates, and many other names that are immediately recognizable.

Beginnings of the Bilderberg Group

The group is believed to have taken its name from the hotel in Osterbeek, Holland, where its first conference was held in May 1954. The initial rationale for this conference was that the U.S. and Europe were not united enough in their global policies. 

The idea was to foster more agreement on how to better promote ‘Atlanticism,’ or closer cooperation on political, economic, and military issues.

Ever since this time, the group has met regularly (at least annually), usually behind armed guards and always in total secrecy about the agenda and what is actually discussed. Attendees are not permitted to give any quotes or talk on the record about anything that happens behind those closed doors.

There is also very little press or news media coverage of these three-day events, although this is beginning to change over the last few years, as more people are becoming aware of the group's existence.

On occasion, the Bilderberg Group does release some of its decisions, although this is usually quite cryptic and given to very few sources.

There is a lot of speculation that the few media outlets which accurately predicted events like the downfall of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War, or even the timing of the Iraq invasion, were given the inside scoop directly from a Bilderberg source. Indeed, it would appear that being well connected can offer a glimpse into the future.

Campaign of Secrecy

In this day and age, how is it possible to keep such a secret?

One thought is that many of the members of the media elite have been bribed. High ranking members of prominent papers like the Washington Post, The New York Times, and the Los Angeles Times, along with leaders of all the national television networks, have been allowed attendance at these secret events many times in exchange for their agreement to not report anything about them.

The Bilderberg Group has also grabbed control of the news wire services. Sadly, almost all of the news reported throughout the U.S. initially comes from these wire services and the major newspapers or television networks.

Theoretically and practically, control over just a few news media outlets could be enough to keep the actions of an ultra-secretive and influential group of global elites out of the mainstream press.

Long Range Goals

The most important question that people have been asking about the Bilderberg Group for years is what they ultimately want. An examination of the facts and the record reveals that the ultimate goal of such a group is two-fold: power and control. They want to have near total control over the entire world, and with it, ultimate power.

In practice this could translate into the overriding goal of a one-world government with a single, global marketplace. This would be controlled by a single world army and financially regulated through the use of a single global currency under the auspices of a World Central Bank. 

Taking this a step further, the implementation of this goal might mean your life would be the way these elites desire. They would have total control over all media and press, making it quite easy to control (or at least strongly influence) public opinion.

No more middle class, no more democracy. There might be manufactured crises and wars, centralized control over education (indoctrination) to train those chosen for specific roles, and possibly even a tax on all ‘world citizens.’ 

Think these goals and ideals are far away in some distant future? Consider the fact that the U.S. financial system is already a world power; those governments who do not follow the wishes of our leaders are quickly exorcised from the international financial system. All that would need to happen is a slight expansion and more complete integration.

There is even some speculation that after the passage of NAFTA, the Bilderberg Group has been secretly influencing policy throughout North America in an effort to create a more unified block. This would be something along the same lines as the EU, only with Canada, the USA, and Mexico. 

The Bottom Line

No matter how you look at the Bilderberg Group, it is eerily disturbing. Just the fact that a global power elite with representatives from politics, finance, and industry is meeting behind closed doors, in almost total secrecy on a regular basis, should be enough to cause concern and public outcry.

The fact that they feel the need to control everything which occurs at these meetings, allow NO public attendance or reporting of any kind, and stay behind armed guards seems suspicious to say the least.

Hopefully, as more and more people become aware of their existence and possible explanations regarding their activities, the true desires and agenda of this influential group will come to light.

The next Bilderberg meeting is planned for June 5-9 at the Grove Hotel in Hertfordshire, England, where the civil war in Syria is expected to be the main topic of discussion.
