AFP AUDIO INTERVIEW
AMERICAN FREE PRESS was the first news organization to regularly cover the now infamous Bilderberg meetings, with the late James P. Tucker, Jr., famed ‘Bilderberg Hound,’ author of Jim Tucker’s Bilderberg Diary, spearheading the effort first for The Spotlight, AFP’s predecessor and then onward for AFP.
Tucker, who passed away in 2013, passed the baton to Mark Anderson starting in 2010. This year, once again, Mark is monitoring “the scene of the crime,” as Jim was fond of saying, as Bilderberg 2016 takes place in downtown Dresden, Germany.
Dave Gahary spoke with Mark about Bilderberg 2016 in this informative interview (26:27).
Dave Gahary, a former submariner in the U.S. Navy, is the host of AFP’s ‘Underground Interview’ series. He prevailed in a suit brought by the New York Stock Exchange in an attempt to silence him.
Bilderbergers Meeting in Dresden
• Official topics list masks larger agenda.
By Mark Anderson
As Bilderberg 2016 convenes, taking place June 9-12 in Dresden, Germany at the heavily barricaded Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski Dresden, it’s important to note that— as this AMERICAN FREE PRESS writer learned at a 2013 Brookings Institution meeting, just before that year’s Bilderberg-UK meeting—a European Union (EU) army for a “United States of Europe” has been on the menu of the world planners in Bilderberg and associated organizations.
Notably, the Bilderbergers’ media outlet, whose operators never reveal their names or affiliations, announced around June 6 in their usual limited, last-minute fashion the list of Bilderberg 2016 attendees and their assumed topics. Their press release, including a shorter-than-usual list of topics, along with the confirmed participants, can be accessed here.
For the record, their ten stated 2016 topics, some of which are amusingly vague and generic, are:
- Current events
- Europe: migration, growth, reform, vision, unity
- Middle East
- U.S. political landscape, economy: growth, debt, reform
- Cyber security
- Geo-politics of energy and commodity prices
- Precariat and middle class
- Technological innovation
Meanwhile, however, accounts of joint military exercises involving British and French soldiers this spring in south England represent the most recent evidence yet that the development of an EU military force has come off of the drawing board and is emerging as a reality.
The Franco-UK exercises, dubbed Exercise Griffin Strike, took place in late April. They involved the swapping of officers wherein French commanders directed British troops and vice versa, according to Brian Gerrish, who served 20 years in the Royal Navy and co-produces the online investigative news and commentary site, UK Column.
The broader issue here is that the upcoming vote in Britain on exiting the EU, or Brexit, as it is called, will be rendered moot, since a pending EU army—with requirements for British soldiers to take part in that army—undercuts a successful UK vote to separate from the EU.
Brexit, of course, is philosophically opposed by the Bilderberg group’s core leadership and their brethren at the Brookings Institution, in the Council on Foreign Relations, at the CFR-related Chicago Council on Global Affairs and scores of similar think tanks in the U.S. and abroad—and in the G7 and G20.
Brookings—whose scholars regularly attend the highly secretive Bilderberg meetings that bring together bought-off editors, various ministers, royalty, bankers, energy barons, high-tech gurus and others—also reported in 2013 that a “fiscal union” to centralize the EU’s taxing, budgeting, and spending, is a goal.

The G7’s just-concluded 2016 meeting in Japan provides yet another glimpse into Bilderberg’s outlook, as AFP’s late Bilderberg hound James P. Tucker Jr. often said.
Right on cue, a G7 declaration issued immediately thereafter calls for worldwide taxation. In so doing, the G7 ministers referred to the G20, which, as AFP reported, recently met in Washington and warmly welcomed a report calling for a world-taxation grid, from which no one can hide. The G7 declaration comes in the wake of this AFP writer’s report on Bilderberg’s linkage to the Panama Papers in a gambit to exploit the tax-evasion revelations to fool the public into supporting a new world-wide taxation system.
The G7 officially stated: “To restore public trust in tax systems by enhancing transparency of tax information, we reaffirm G20’s call on all relevant countries, including all financial centers and jurisdictions, to implement the standard on automatic exchange of information by [the] committed deadline and to sign the Multilateral Convention, as well as the request to the [Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development] to establish . . . ‘objective criteria to identify non-cooperative jurisdictions with respect to tax transparency.’ ”
The G7-Bilderberg conduit, while opposing Brexit (according to the G7’s post-Japan declaration), is sparing no expense to “reaffirm our commitment to keep our markets open and to fight all forms of protectionism [tariffs and other helpful sovereign tools]. . . . We encourage trade liberalization . . . through regional trade agreements including the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Japan-EU Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).”
Whatever topics for discussion might pop up on Bilderberg’s so-called official agenda released to the press this year—many of which are suspect—the broader topics named here represent the long-term transnational integration scheme that’s always “on the agenda” and needs to be exposed and defeated, especially when the Trans-Pacific and Transatlantic trade traps come up for approval in Congress.
The Bilderberg group is a highly secretive organization of European and North American elites from big business, big media, politics, banking, and other sectors.
The Bilderberg Meetings, which were started in 1954, occur annually at only the most posh hotels or resorts in Europe or North America. The entire resort is closed to the public and real reporters. A large contingent of armed private security and police represent a show of force to ward off and if necessary shoot any “un-invitees” who try to enter. Deploringly, select members of the press who are invited have pledged not to report on the conferences.
Whether in their private or public capacity, American public office holders (as well as influential U.S. private citizens in general) who meet like this behind closed doors with foreign policymakers (where Bilderberg admits no meeting records are kept) are committing a felony, according to U.S. laws—mainly the Logan Act.
According to British professor Richard Aldrich, the Central Intelligence Agency helped organize and fund the first meeting in 1954 (with some Ford Foundation help). From there, Bilderberg has maintained a strong hand in European consolidation and other internationalist schemes. AFP’s late publisher Willis Carto often said Bilderberg represents hard proof that elites, including elected officials, undemocratically gather and conspire to plan, formulate or influence policy, directly and/or indirectly.
Mark Anderson covers the annual Bilderberg meetings and is chairman of AFP’s new America First Action Committee, designed to involve AFP readers in focusing intensely on Congress to enact key changes, including monetary reform and a pullback of the warfare state. He and his wife Angie often work together on news projects.
