This past weekend a small group of global elite met in secret to plot the future of the world.
That is what dozens of bloggers and reporters for alternative and foreign news outlets are saying about this year’s Bilderberg meeting.
Mainstream media in the U.S. largely ignored the meeting, choosing instead to bombard Americans with details about the lewd behavior of a sexual deviant in Congress.
This year American outlets wrote a whopping five articles about the meeting. However, this is more than can be said of previous years usually the U.S. media fails to give Bilderberg a single mention.
Time magazine gave the most informative piece. Not only did Time cover this year’s meeting, but it explained the history behind
Bilderberg as well. The annual meeting was created in 1954 by Prince Bernhard of Holland, “in order to bring together European and American elites.”
The meeting is named after the hotel where the first conference took place. Usually 100 to 120 elites flock to the meeting which is held at a different location each year.
A bulk of Bilderberg attendees are bankers, politicians, media moguls, European royalty and CEOs of the world’s largest corporations.
Until recently what happened at Bilderberg stayed at Bilderberg. Members were tight-lipped and denied the organization even existed.
This changed with the explosion of the alternative media and citizen journalists armed with the latest social media technology. When the Internet is flooded with hundreds of photographs and videos of billionaires and heads of state sneaking into a heavily guarded luxury resort, they are no longer able to deny that they hold annual secret meetings. This year the group even took the extraordinary step of creating a website and published an official list of attendees.
After examining the attendance list, one cannot help but wonder why the mainstream media is uninterested in such a gathering.
This year’s attendees included the following power brokers from finance: the chairmen of Deutsche Bank, Barclays and Goldman Sachs; the governors of the Bank of Canada and the
National Bank of Belgium; the vice chairmen of Citigroup and the former chairman of Chase Manhattan; and the president of the Central Bank of the European Union.
Political attendees from the U.S. included the Director of the National Security Agency and the Deputy Secretary of State.
Dozens of elected officials and bureaucrats from European Union nations were also present.
The following is a small list of corporate magnates that attended: the chairman of Coca-Cola, Fiat and LinkedIn; the CEOs of Amazon, Airbus, Alcoa and a co-founder of Facebook; and former head of Google, Eric Schmidt.
Of course no sinister gathering of the global elite is ever complete without Henry Kissinger and David Rockefeller, both of whom attended.
This year the meeting was held at the Suvretta House hotel in St. Moritz, Switzerland.
CNBC writes that it is just a meeting of friends, and that no agreements on global policy are formed which contradicts their statements that what happens inside the hotel is a closely guarded secret, and that “Bilderbergs are probably the most influential global network of all time... it’s about getting a consensus around a position that then infiltrates itself into society.”
According to Fox News, the secretive nature of the meetings that has sparked conspiracy theories about a small group of powerful elites who are trying to form a new world order.
