Bilderberg 2013: Protestors Claim Victory Over Secret Meeting

LONDON–The 5-star Grove Hotel in the leafy London suburb of Watford is hosting a secret gathering of the some of the most powerful people in the world – the Bilderberg Group.

This year’s attendees, according to the official Bilderberg website, include directors from global banks Goldman Sachs and HSBC, and the directors of Facebook and Google. British prime minister David Cameron admitted he will be attending on Friday.

What goes on behind the closed doors has been hidden for the last 59 years. Even the existence of the group was known to few people, with media shying away from covering it, much to the frustration of those who have protested and monitored the group over the years.

But this year, something changed, as for the first time reporters and TV crews mingled with protestors and MPs on the patch of grass marked off by a police cordon on Thursday.

Comedy writer Charlie Skelton has been monitoring the Bilderberg group for years. “I used to come because nobody else did. So it looks like I’m out of a job,” he said. “There’s a large press battalion of press – Sky News, Channel 4 News, The Times… you name it. What you see now is historic, it really is.”

The Bilderberg Group website says it is a forum for informal, off-the-record discussions about megatrends and the major issues facing the world. “Thanks to the private nature of the conference, the participants are not bound by the conventions of office or by pre-agreed positions. As such, they can take time to listen, reflect and gather insights,” says a statement. “There is no detailed agenda, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued.”

According to the website this year’s meeting includes the following topics: can the US and Europe grow faster and create jobs?; how big data is changing almost everything; nationalism and populism; cyber warfare and the proliferation of asymmetric threats; politics of the European Union; developments in the Middle East; current affairs.

MP Gerard Batten, one of the MPs who had come to see for themselves what the conference was about said: “They have a website, they say that it is just a discussion, and there are no conclusions. I’d like to see a list of their decisions and action points – they say they don’t arrive at any.”

“My biggest question is why the media haven’t reported on all this in the last 59 years to any degree, and why it’s all been kept secret. That’s the biggest mystery of all.”

“If a couple of well-known people meet for a coffee, it’s front page news in the British media, and yet you get 130 of the best known people in the world turning up and no one’s interested.”

“Really there should be a media frenzy, that’s what you’d expect. This is a major breakthrough today.”

Some protesters, like Massimiliano Bonavoglia from Italy, have travelled a long way to the 4-day event in Watford.

“If they don’t have anything to cover up, why are they doing something like this, not in front of the people? The Politicians go in dark cars, they are hidden, and they don’t want to say what is going on after the meeting.” said Bonavoglia.

“After every Bilderberg group. we see some changes in international political settlement.”

“I’ve come to meet people, to see what’s going on over there [in the hotel], to write something about it, and to meet people who are not happy about this situation, it is important to have common rights, to communicate these things to other people.”

The objections to Bilderberg range from the milder pleas for transparency to accusations of large-scale manipulation of global events.

Alternative media broadcaster and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones told reporters: “We’ve had a huge victory in the fact that they tried to deny that this thing exists, and now we’ve forced it into hundreds of newspapers.”

Jones says that the group operates as a “shadow government above the government, a shadow world government.”

“Not everyone who comes to Bilderberg are scoundrels and villians. But there are villains in there, who are basically organize.” He says the biggest issue is the fact that they are in with the regulators.

He said that the security measures ensured that they couldn’t identify the attendees as they entered the hotel. “They have basically have corralled us in here nicely, so that we don’t actually get any photos of people who are going to be attending.”

The hotel is surrounded by a steel walls which rings the hotel from half a mile away, quickly dubbed ‘The Great Wall of Watford’.

Campaign Liason Officer from Hertfordshire police Steve Lee said the wall wasn’t to stop people from protesting. “That is a measure to protect the people inside. Any high profile individuals are subject to a number of risks from various international organizations, and that is geared up to protect them.”

According to the police, the security will be ‘cost neutral’ to the taxpayer. “How that funding breaks down is something I don’t have any knowledge on,” said Lee.

Club Of Rich, Powerful Meet in Secret Near London

LONDON—It’s a busy weekend at the luxury Grove Hotel, favored haunt of British soccer players and their glitz-loving spouses.

More than 100 of the world’s most powerful people are at the former manor house near London for a secretive annual gathering that has attained legendary status in the eyes of anti-capitalist protesters and conspiracy theorists.

The guest list for the Bilderberg meeting includes Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde and former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. British Prime Minister David Cameron is due to drop by Friday.

The Bilderberg Group was set up in 1954 to support military and economic co-operation between Europe and North America during the Cold War.

Named for the site of its first meeting — the Bilderberg Hotel in Oosterbeek, Holland — the forum for prominent politicians, thinkers and business leaders has been held annually at a series of secluded venues in Europe and North America.

What happens at Bilderberg, stays at Bilderberg. There is no media access and the public is kept away by a large security operation. The group says that “there is no detailed agenda, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued.”

But in a move toward slightly more openness, the group now has a website, which lists attendees and key topics for discussion, including the economy, U.S. foreign policy, “cyber warfare and the proliferation of asymmetric threats” and “major trends in medical research.”

Invitees include British Treasury chief George Osborne, Goldman Sachs chairman Peter Sutherland and Thomas Enders, CEO of aerospace company EADS.

Publication of these details has done little to ease the concerns of protesters, who sense a shadowy global elite at work in the secretive meeting.

”When 130 of the leaders from all across the West get together, and many of these are billionaires, they are people who are immensely wealthy and immensely powerful,” said Michael Meacher, a lawmaker from Britain’s Labour Party.

”And when they all get together, it’s not just to have a chat about the latest problem, it is to concert plans for the future of capitalism in the West. That is on a very different scale.”

Others go even further, putting Bilderberg at the heart of a global web of conspiracy. The protesters in Watford include U.S. talk-radio host and Sept. 11 “truther” Alex Jones, and former professional soccer player David Icke, who believes the world is run by a race of reptiles in human form.

Demonstrators plan to hold a “Bilderberg fringe” festival outside the hotel until the conference ends Sunday.

A Bilderberg spokesman — reached by email since no phone number is listed — said there is nothing sinister about the gathering.

“We disclose the date, the location, the participants and the key topics of the conference,” Xander Heijnen said. “Many groups of people meet without announcing it publicly at all, without disclosing who is taking part and without giving any key topics.

“The meetings broaden the participants’ range of viewpoints, help them to gain insights and exchange views,” he said. “It seems illogical to argue that a meeting of individuals designed to give and obtain fresh insights, somehow ‘undermines democracy.’”

That message has not swayed protesters like Judd Charlton, a ventriloquist from London who showed up Thursday to jeer at cars with blacked-out windows entering the hotel compound.

“We are basically here to bring down the parasites who are drug dealers and bank collapsers who seem to want to destroy this world,” he said.

Thanks to Jim Tucker of the Liberty Lobby publication The Spotlight, I have known about the Bilderberg group since the late 1970's.

Jim Tucker past away in April of this year, R.I.P.
I will miss him.

HOW did the Bilderberg Group FIRST get exposed?


HOW did the Bilderberg Group FIRST get exposed? Here’s how: In 1957 a Pulitzer Prize winning columnist for Scripps Howard News Service, the Chicago Tribune and other outlets named Westbrook Pegler published the first article on the Bilderberg Group, although he did not know its name at the time, he still knew what they were doing. He wrote “Something very mysterious is going on when a strange assortment of 67 self-qualified, polyglot designers and arbiters of the economic and political fate of our western world go into a secret huddle on an island of Brunswick, GA and not a word gets into the popular press beyond a little routine AP story. These gumshoe super state architects and monetary schemers were drawn from all NATO countries. The fact of this weird conclave as spooky as any midnight meeting of the Klux in a piney wood, was bound to get known to the world eventually.”

He continues and explains how he first got word of this meeting, “I got my first word of it from a reader who happened onto St. Simon Island, Brunswick, on her way to West Palm Beach. She wrote that the hotel on St. Simon was almost deserted, but that when she commented on this, the clerk said the place had been alive with mysterious characters a few days earlier and with Secret Service and FBI too.”

While not having a name, Westbrook did connect them with the same gang who met on Jekyll Island to formulate the plans for the Federal Reserve. He said, “Senator Aldrich, of Rhode Island, called this one into being. He was the father of Winthrop Aldrich. There have been many excited versions of that ancient hoe-down on Jekyll Island in 1908, but relatively few have ever heard of it all.”

A man named Willis Carto read Westbrook Pegler’s article and it motivated him to begin investigating and tracking the Bilderberg Group himself. In June of 1958 Willis Carto founded Liberty Lobby which published a newsletter titled Liberty Lowdown that included work exposing the Bilderberg Group. An article titled “Secret World Summit Conference 1975” explained “The 1975 meeting took place against the background of the most massive exposure the Bilderbergers have ever suffered. In 1974 the meeting was at Megeve, France. A Liberty Lobby reporter was there and although no news whatever of this important gathering was carried by either the Associated Press, United Press International, or my Newspaper in the US, Liberty Lobby alerted millions of Americans to the facts through the media of its publications and radio programs. Because of these efforts, numerous editors of daily newspapers asked AP and UPI about previous Bilderberg meetings and demanded coverage of later ones.”

Enter Jim Tucker, today’s foremost expert on the organization, who has been tracking Bilderberg since 1975. Tucker explains, “Had it not been for Willis A. Cato, who hired me as editor of The Spotlight and then put me on the tack of Bilderberg, I would probably-almost assuredly-never heard of the word “Bilderberg.” Having had the opportunity, through Carto’s good offices as founder of Liberty Lobby, publisher of The Spotlight, to begin what ultimately proved to be a generation of world-wide Bilderberg-hunting, I was able to bring news about Bilderberg to literally millions of folks who would like myself have otherwise remained in the dark about these globalist schemers.” (Page 218 of Jim Tucker’s Bilderberg Diary.)

And everyone knows that this had no effect upon the world at all....So why 60+ years of secrecy?


"See, we have nothing to hide... we're open and everyone is invited..."


I smell a rat! Either that or the final plans have been drawn up and are already being implemented...
