The Bilderberg Group. Democracy? What Democracy?

The annual think-tank meetings, known by the name The Bilderberg Group are ending today amidst their customary great secrecy. Little do we little people know what goes on behind those closed doors; probably just about as much as the attendees care about the concerns of you and I.

Since 1954, the Bilderberg Group has called together leaders from Europe and North America to “informally” discuss the condition of the world and the direction it is taking. Attendance is by invitation only and consists of high ranking government official, military officers, business magnates, bankers and some of the top names in academia.

In other words, the people who control and shape our world get together to talk about the world.

While the group officially state that no resolutions are voted upon and no decisions are reached, that is ludicrous. If such a powerful group of leaders were to come to any sort of consensus on any subject, who would be able to stand in their way, especially considering that the accord would be reached in secret?

The stated purpose of these meetings is to provide a forum for open discussion about issues that concern the world. Considering who attends this meeting of the powerful, I have to wonder how they define the “issues that concern the world.”

You can be sure that it is not in the same what that you or I would. They would look at the problem of our national debt not as it might affect their children’s future, but rather in how it would affect their family’s fortune.

They hold the meetings in secret so that nobody is held publically accountable for what they say. This is supposed to allow free and easy exchange of ideas, without causing those words to create any public commitment.

Chatham House Rule is used, meaning that meeting attendees are free to use whatever information they glean from the meetings, but they are not allowed to divulge the identity, position or affiliation of who said it. This theoretically makes for more open conversation; at least, open within the group. For the rest of us, it’s as closed as closed can be.

Behind any conspiracy theory there are some facts which are driving that theory. Often, the facts are misrepresented or misunderstood. Nevertheless, there has always been one common denominator between all conspiracy theories; that of powerful people who are working in secret to rule the world.

By that definition, the Bilderberg Group is the perfect conspiracy theory, in and of itself. They already work in secret and control much of the world, especially the world’s finances. They don’t have to write a manifesto or publish any resolutions or conference results; all they have to do is take action on them.

While they keep the meetings secret, the steering committee has released some minimal information to the press, including some of the topics that will be open for discussion in this year’s conference. These include:

  • National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance
  • Does privacy exist?
  • The future of global economics
  • Is economic recovery sustainable?
  • The Ukrainian crisis
  • The future of global politics
  • The future of democracy
  • China’s political and economic outlook
  • New architecture of the Middle East

Considering that this is a meeting of European and North American political and business leaders, some of those topics seem a little out of place. Although Ukraine is technically a part of Europe, they aren’t part of NATO or the European Union; so why are they talking about Ukraine? Do these people think that they can dictate to Russia?

Then they move even farther afield; why should they even think that they have a right to make decisions about the Middle East or China?

{adinserter usdeception}The more disturbing topics are those that hit a little closer to home, such as those related to the economy.

These people represent the world’s richest, those who control the world’s money supply.Their interest in money isn’t in making sure that you and I can pay our bills, but that they take control of as much of it as possible.

However, there are topics in this year’s conference which are even bigger than that. We all know that thanks to Eric Snowden, the NSA has received a lot of attention. What many people don’t realize is that some of those European countries have been the NSA’s partners in that.

The original program to spy on U.S. citizens (as well as British citizens and others), got around the law by each country that participated in the program spying on the other countries citizens. The information would then be passed on to the home country of the individual citizen upon request, as a normal part of information sharing. That grew into what Snowden revealed.

Does privacy exist? I can answer that easily; No! Not only does the NSA spy on us, but most major American corporations do as well. The only privacy we have is an illusion.

Finally, the most unsettling, but least surprising topic that they will be discussing is the future of democracy. Many in the conspiracy theory camp have said that the Bilderberg group is one of the movers and shakers behind a one world government.

That government, if you haven’t figured it out, is a socialist one. Just look at the types of resolutions that the one world government, known as the United Nations has been putting out. They are all socialist.

Europe has been becoming more and more socialist, every since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Thanks to the Democrats, and especially Obama, the United States is also becoming more socialist. So, here we have somewhere between 120 and 150 leaders talking about “the future of democracy.” Does anyone have any doubt that their idea of that is to drive a stake through democracy’s heart?

When powerful people meet in secret we should all be concerned. No, we shouldn’t listen to the fear mongers and we shouldn’t jump on every conspiracy theory we find. But we should be aware that the people who are making the decisions which mold the world that you and I live in are not looking to do us good.

They see themselves as the elite and the rest of us as mere serfs or peasants in the modern scheme of class domination. They will do as they want and expect us to just accept it.

  • I can remember hearing about this from the Spotlight Newspaper, until our government shut them down and then from the American Free Press(AFP) after the majority of the group reformed and reopened business. After all, we didn’t have the internet, ‘back in the day’!!

  • Ahhh yesss, my little cluckadeeezzz…. A holocaust, delivered to your door, by Dr. Ghastly Death; Obamacare / O-bam-A MACABRE… where your end of life benefit, is calibrated, by your, commercial viability… peasants… You no longer, produce more than you take; you’re out… All lizards at law, are surely at risk, as, govern-mentals, eat their young… Edgrrr…

  • Baloney, the reptilian illiterati, are too busy, inbreeding spawn ; the likes of Zero, to, care about money. They own the printing presses, and, their diabolics, are generated by how much they hate each other…and, themselves; same thang… Edgrrr….

  • In my opinion, ushering in a one world government means ushering in a one world dictator…

  • Capitalism is not destroying the planet, a hundred years of unconstitutional monetary issuance is what is destroying the planet. The Elite banking families implement socialist policy in order to try and maintain control over their systems when they become saturated and self-destructing. Their control is an illusion while at the same time it is very much a reality to all of us every day.

    When capitalism is paired with proper constitutional monetary issuance, a natural economic balance evolves. Constitutional monetary policy allows Citizens to expand the economy based on necessity, not greed. Greed can be held in check striving only for what it can capture out of circulation. Restricting private greed from ’NEW’ monetary issuance through the powers of the US Constitution will make all unnecessary economic expansion end; all unnecessary competition would end; high pressure society would end; over consumption and over production would end. Citizens would simply live out of debt without inflation or deflation and expand the economy through necessity.

    However, there are two potential good things that have happened as a result of a hundred years of out of a of control ludicrous international monetary issuance. One, apparently it has forced the rapid development of advanced technology in a short amount of time. Two, it has spread this advanced technology around the world in a very short amount of time. Both of which could be of benefit to Humanity should the Earth go through another cataclysm (nuclear war, solar flare, asteroid, pole shift??).

  • I saw one of Hillary’s best media blow-offs once when a reporter caught her going into the hotel and asked something like Are you hear for the Bilderberg convention ? She didn’t even bother with a well programmed sound bite. She simply said, ‘…No, I have no idea what you are talking about… and turned to continue on her way.

  • I want to put the bilderbergs in a coffin and nail it shut they have done nothing but enriched themselves and the people have been put on the hook to take all their failures and we are paying the price —no more they have the money hey can put up and pay for their own failures not the average people who are just trying to make a living.!!!
