Big Media Covers for Bilderberg

Surprisingly, this year’s Bilderberg conference was covered by The New York Times and The Washington Post, likely because of the attendance of Jared Kushner, Mike Pompeo, and Stacey Adams. Globalists want Silicon Valley’s help on censorship, election fixing, and new war technology.

By Mark Anderson

Several ironies and surprises surround the 2019 Bilderberg conference that ran May 30-June 2 in Montreux, Switzerland, not the least of which were reasonably substantial reports in two of America’s leading members of the mass media cartel—The New York Times and The Washington Post.

Why all the fuss from media giants that usually downplay or ignore Bilderberg? Well, the big media’s favorite target, President Donald Trump, sent his chief adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Bilderberg, along with several National Security Council and Office of the Secretary of Defense personnel—not to mention the attendance of possible Democratic presidential candidate Stacey Abrams, the radical black leftist attorney who lost her bid for Georgia’s governorship.

The Times noted in a May 31 piece:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is on a weeklong trip to Europe where he is raising sensitive issues with national leaders—from Iranian missiles to Chinese technology to the economic collapse of Venezuela—but the most colorful conversations could take place this weekend out of public earshot in a secretive conclave at a Swiss lakeside resort.

It didn’t seem to occur to the Times that perhaps such sensitive matters shouldn’t even be discussed at Bilderberg, whose participants, representing a broad spectrum of government and corporate power, could have unknown personal connections and may leak sensitive information about U.S. national security—a key problem with Bilderberg to begin with. At any rate, the Times called Bilderberg’s 67th meeting in 65 years “an annual forum in which participants agree not to reveal exactly what was said or who said it. It is a shadow version of Davos, the elite annual winter conference in the Swiss Alps that President Trump has attended once but has also criticized.”

While that last passage could almost be mistaken for the late AFP Bilderberg hound Jim Tucker’s writings, what the Times didn’t disclose is that another Times reporter—renowned national security writer David E. Sanger—was already inside Bilderberg as a listed participant.

The Times’s duplicity was matched by the Post. While Post writer Adam Taylor scribbled a screed that combined poking fun at Bilderberg’s critics with tidbits of real reporting, he pled ignorance about what Bilderberg might ultimately be discussing, to wit:

The involvement of key Trump administration members may spark criticism from those who view the meetings as nefarious gatherings of the global elite. Conspiracy theorists, including a number who have publicly supported Trump, have picketed the event in recent years . . . . The meeting’s website lists topics for discussion this year, including “China,” “Russia,” “Brexit” and “Climate Change and Sustainability.” One thing not listed, however, is the topic that is apparently driving Pompeo’s visit to Europe: Iran, which the Trump administration claims poses a growing threat . . . . Could the world’s power brokers end up discussing Iran anyway? Perhaps. But it’s unlikely that we’ll ever know.

Really? Taylor could simply huddle with fellow Post writer Megan McArdle, who joined Sanger inside Bilderberg. And the Bilderbergers’s famed Chatham House Rule needn’t be an obstacle; the Post’s intrepid reporters certainly could pump Megan for information and dodge the rule.

Meanwhile, the alternative press on the ground endured very trying circumstances. Dan Dicks of Press for Truth, Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change, and Glen Bolton of the Conspiracy Cabbie were detained at the Geneva airport while photographing and questioning stone-cold silent invitees to the Bilderberg meeting.

They did spot former Google CEO Eric Schmidt as he strolled outside the Bilderberg meeting to ask him whether Bilderberg has had anything to do with de-platforming online conservative-constitutional commentators, with nerdy Schmidt brusquely brushing off the questions. Yet these hard-working reporters were the ones being questioned by police who politely searched them several times. Dicks remarked that freedom of the press seems to nosedive whenever Bilderberg is in town.

Guardian reporter Charlie Skelton, whose annual writings on Bilderberg extended to Newsweek online this year, walks the fine line between mainstream and alternative reporting on Bilderberg. In a witty and in many ways insightful Newsweek piece he noted:

As the war machine gets smarter, and every last bit of weaponry becomes AI-enhanced, the lines between Silicon Valley and the Pentagon start to [blur]. Sniff this year’s Bilderberg and you can smell this new kind of war: “cyber threats” and “the weaponization of social media” are on the agenda … . This blurring of tech and war takes physical form in some of the participants at Bilderberg. Longtime conference insider and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt chairs the Pentagon’s Defense Innovation Board and also heads up the new National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence.

Two other members of the Defense Innovation Board are here in Montreux: Reid Hoffman [of LinkedIn] and psychologist Adam M. Grant. Alongside Schmidt on the Bilderberg Steering Committee are [two more] tech billionaires, Alex Karp and Peter Thiel. Karp is the CEO of Palantir, a shady data-analytics company which has just won a massive $800 million Pentagon battlefield intelligence contract. Palantir was set up in 2004 by Peter Thiel with backing from the CIA.

Those are some interesting observations, but consider some highlights of the greater Bilderberg network that often are overlooked by both mainstream and alternative media:

2019 Bilderberg attendee Fernando Medina, the mayor of Lisbon, flew immediately from Switzerland to attend the Pritzker Forum on Global Cities in Chicago June 5-7, where the elevation of municipal power to the global level to sidestep the nation-state was the central theme. That forum, which sees the global cities movement as a means of countering the populist uprising that Bilderberg fears, included a presentation on “Resilient Cities,” a Rockefeller Foundation-backed project that involves technological input from Karp’s Palantir firm.

The Trilateral Commission, the younger and somewhat more open Bilderberg sibling which in many ways makes Bilderberg’s dealings more visible, for the first time ever held its annual North American Regional Meeting in Silicon Valley, Calif., Nov. 16-17, 2018. Interestingly, the Trilaterals’ European Regional meeting held the same month included Canadian “anti-PC” psychology professor Jordan Peterson as one of its speakers, addressing “A Provocation: Will Liberal Democracy Survive?” That meeting also included 2019 Bilderberg participant José Manuel Barroso, former European Commission president.

And 2019 Bilderberg attendee Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is partnering with two highly suspect companies, NewsGuard and ElectionGuard, to police cyberspace for “fake news” and re-tool our election machinery to make elections more “accountable,” even while NewsGuard, which involves using real editors instead of computer algorithms to weed out suspected “disinformation,” has advisory board members and investors tied to Bilderberg, the CIA, CNN, and the global cities movement.

The reality is that today’s Bilderberg is just one of several groupings within a network that constitutes a powerful private tier of government. And the network’s architects are pressing onward, despite being at an apparent crossroads: The Trilateral Commission’s 2019 plenary meeting took place June 14-16 in Paris and the commission’s next European meeting will be Nov. 22-24 in Stockholm, Sweden.

Bilderberg Boy Blames Trump

Was former Gov. John Hickenlooper indoctrinated at the last Bilderberg meeting? This Bilderberg “graduate” recently told prominent Chicago globalists about his foreign policy and outlined his NWO-centered presidential candidacy.

By Mark Anderson

Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper appears to be a changed man ever since he fraternized in Turin, Italy with some of the world’s most influential transnationalists at the secretive Bilderberg meeting last year. Having cast aside comparatively mundane local and state issues, the 2020 Democratic presidential aspirant has morphed into a foreign policy “expert” and is going global all the way, Bilderberg style.

On May 20, Hickenlooper became the first 2020 presidential candidate to address the Chicago Council on Global Affairs (CCGA) in Chicago.

CCGA originated in 1922 as the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations. The group has welcomed several regular and semi-regular Bilderberg attendees over the years, though few who have sought the White House.

Hickenlooper’s message was clear: President Donald Trump is a menace not just to the U.S. but to all that is global, largely because, according to Hickenlooper, Trump’s rhetoric and actions “divide” the American people from within and drive a wedge between the U.S. and its allies in terms of the big picture.

Kingdom Identity

In the world of Hickenlooper and his CCGA confreres, Trump’s intransigence couldn’t possibly be a simple opposition to a rigged globalist system that nearly always gets its way and keeps centralizing wealth and power into fewer and fewer hands. It couldn’t be that Trump won the White House because most people agree that globalism’s days should be numbered and a return to principled nationhood could be the answer. Nor could the nation’s divisive climate be the result of a media-fed frenzy trying to second-guess and upset Trump’s efforts at every turn.

Oh, no. It could only be that Trump is bad and that Hickenlooper, the assembled CCGA globalists, and their fellow travelers know what’s good for everyone—the glaring failures of forced, clandestine globalization notwithstanding.

Hickenlooper made several boilerplate points, typical of those who’ve experienced the “Bilderberg immersion,” including that he’d rejoin the Paris Agreement “on my first day in office” to counter Trump’s move, on the eve of the 2017 Bilderberg meeting in Virginia, to withdraw the U.S. from that nebulous climate-change pact.

While Hickenlooper’s most salient point was that the U.S. needs “cyber-walls” to protect its vulnerable computer-intensive mass transit, communications, financial, defense and energy systems, he contrasted that with Trump’s efforts toward creating an effective border wall (tactical infrastructure system) in an arguably unfair manner.

“Trump obsesses about border walls,” Hickenlooper lamented, while avoiding the more objective view of seeing both kinds of “walls” as important, especially with tens of thousands of people a day, many with unknown backgrounds, now being apprehended at the southern border, largely in Texas.

While Hickenlooper voiced the tiresome trope that “Russia invaded the 2016 election,” implying, like most good globalists, that Trump would have lost the election to Hillary Clinton if it wasn’t for those rogue Russians, he trounced Trump for enacting tariffs against Chinese goods. But he did so without taking into account that America’s long-term trade deficit with China, to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars per year, has caused a huge forfeiture of U.S. wealth to China, enabling the communist-based nation to leverage its surplus from such gravely imbalanced trade to vastly bolster its military and cyber-spying capabilities.

Bilderberg the Movie

Hickenlooper even went so far as to say that Trump “launched tariff wars” and is hostile toward trade itself when 95% of consumers of U.S. production, he said, live outside U.S. borders.

Trump has so far mainly reoriented trade, in an apparent effort—though the jury is still out in some areas—to make it fairer and more balanced, partly to avoid what happened with trade with China, which was set up by veteran Bilderbergers (the late) David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger. But Trump’s trade efforts also appear to be geared to give American producers a boost and, to a degree, increase overall job creation and spending power.

Hickenlooper appears tone-deaf to such details and instead dutifully spouts the one-world line pretty much across the board. If elected, he also would:

  • adhere to UN mandates and initiatives with few if any exceptions;
  • rejoin the Trans-Pacific Partnership megatrade pact (that Trump left in early 2017) “to influence China”; and
  • never pull U.S. troops out of Syria or anywhere else without consulting all available inhouse policy experts, implying that Trump’s more autonomous approach to reduce troop levels is wrong-headed.

Hickenlooper added that NATO “demonstrates all that is right” about the new world order, claiming that Trump’s basic approach to make more of NATO’s members pay a fairer share of operating costs is somehow ill-advised when, in fact, Trump—as is the case with tariffs on Chinese imports—has fought for better equity for America regarding NATO and other global arrangements. All told, Hickenlooper seems to have been cured of any nationalist notions that he may have harbored in days gone by, as might be expected from a recent Bilderberg graduate.

Bilderberg Insider’s Shocking Admission

Club of Rome founder admitted that “global warming” is a hoax cooked up to scare the public.

By Mark Anderson

In the early 1980s, Justin Walker was an idealistic, hard-working member of the British Green Party when, upon being invited to lunch by an apparent fellow “idealist” who also was a well-connected Fiat Motors executive, he heard firsthand that dire claims of impending environmental doom were being fabricated to deliberately instill widespread insecurity, so the overall population could be goaded into world government.

Walker’s uncle by marriage was Sir Harry Pilkington, a participant at the very first Bilderberg meeting in Holland in 1954, representing the Federation of British Industries. Pilkington “in 1955 became a director of the Bank of England, a position he held until 1972,” Walker told AFP, in an interview just after Bilderberg’s 67th meeting this year in Switzerland.

“My own personal experience has shown me that the Green movement is now totally corrupt and totally without any real solutions or meaning for the human race,” Walker added. He recalled that, when he joined the Green movement in 1978, most of the party members tried to be “an antiparty party,” to distance themselves from conventional party politics, in the belief they actually stood for something and would not let the world’s corporate power brokers push them around.

JWLabs.com

Pilkington, described as a devoted environmental conservationist, in 1980 gave Walker his personal copy of a book called The World Conservation Strategy.

“I was very impressed by that because I was in the Green Party, and I felt this is the real way forward for politics,” Walker recalled. “And then I read another book called One Hundred Pages for the Future by a man named Aurelio Peccei, who was a senior executive at Fiat Motor Company in Italy, but he also co-founded the Club of Rome— the organization that’s behind most of the elite interests in the environment, including, of course, man-made global warming.”

Citing the pivotal experience with the Fiat industrialist, Walker continued: “In 1982 I wrote to Aurelio Peccei, and he said, ‘Come and see me, have lunch with me.’ Unknown to me, my uncle had also approached him because he knew my uncle. Well, I was having lunch with Peccei and he suddenly offered me a job to go and work as one of his researchers for the Club of Rome. He then said to me—and these were his exact words that I remember so clearly—‘You’ll be joining us at a very exciting time. We are creating a global environmental problem that’s going to frighten people into wanting global government.’ ”

“At the time,” Walker said, “being a Green politician, I thought this was wonderful. I didn’t know the facts about Bilderberg, because this was before [British conspiracy researcher] David Icke [also a former Green Party member] started doing his research and other people started doing their research, to show that there’s a hidden tier of government above our elected governments.”

Walker added that, up until 1982, “Nobody mentioned manmade global warming. If anything, they were talking about a mini ice-age. And they were talking about acid rain. This was obviously when they started to get the idea that they could latch onto ‘global warming.’ ”

Walker confessed: “I considered going to work for Peccei for about a week. But I worked for my father at the time, and I was in the Territorial Army and had just been [promoted] to captain. I had a new girlfriend. And I was in the Green Party and thought I was going to get elected to Parliament.”

Pilkington died the next year in 1983, and Peccei died in 1984. Pilkington, late in his life, would tell Walker not to believe the press because “we control it,” referring to the Bilderberg clique. And soon the independent researchers who found increasing evidence of a hidden tier of government that regulated the political process convinced Walker that declining the job was the right decision.

Nowadays, Walker leads the New Chartist Movement to mainly focus on denying the banking power its illicit control of the medium of exchange.

“My main interest is the money supply and the fact that how much money the world has to spend is dependent on a handful of private individuals and dynastic families, stemming to this one organization, the Bank for International Settlements” [the central bank of the central banks in Basel, Switzerland, thought to be the ultimate banking nerve center].

Bilderberg 2019 Meeting Site Revealed

The powerful secret society has announced it will meet in Montreux, Switzerland for its 2019 annual meeting.

By Mark Anderson

The Bilderberg group’s anonymous press office has finally released the dates and location of the 67th Bilderberg conference in 65 years. It will be held May 30-June 2 at the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace on the shores of Lake Geneva in Montreux, Switzerland. Also released were the official lists of topics and attendees, which includes what appears to be the largest contingent of American government-affiliated attendees in recent memory and, quite possibly, in the history of Bilderberg.

This super-secretive gathering meets annually. Its members include uber-wealthy, highly influential figures from the fields of government, high-finance, central banking, high-tech, European royalty, large corporations, think tanks, academia, and the derelict mass media. The confab consists of a series of talks, which amount to brainstorming sessions. From those sessions, and from the networking that happens before, during, and after Bilderberg’s annual meeting, the gathered information, in an off-the-record manner, is quietly disseminated via a private network in order to maintain, consolidate, and expand the transnational world government grid, accompanied by heavy privatization of public assets and systems.

JWLabs.com

Of note, this year’s attendees list includes President Donald Trump’s senior advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner among the 130 people from 23 nations who are attending by invitation only. There have been rumors of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attending, though his name does not appear on the official list.

Bilderberg the Movie

Notably, Bilderberg’s Steering Committee used to invite hard-core neoconservative Zionists Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz, but that’s not been the case in recent years.

Among the list of attendees are a cross-section of people with military and strategic duties: James H. Baker and Matthew Daniels from the DOD, Matthew Pottinger and Matthew Turpin from the NSC, and James O. Ellis from the National Space Council.

The participation of Baker and his fellow travelers from the defense and strategy realm makes sense, given that five of Bilderberg’s 11 topics this year deal with strategic matters: A Stable Strategic Order; China; Russia; the Importance of Space; and Cyber-Threats. The Weaponization of Social Media and the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence topics also fit into the strategic mold.

The remaining four topics this year are: What Next for Europe?, Climate Change and Sustainability, the Future of Capitalism, and Brexit.

Bilderbergers - Puppet-masters

The just-concluded European elections are all but assured to be an unannounced topic this year, due in part to spectacular populist gains. America’s 2020 elections will surely come up, too.

American propagandist David E. Sanger, national security correspondent for The New York Times, will be among this year’s media representatives at Bilderberg. These journalists will have a front-row seat at the secretive discussions, the details of which won’t be reported as having come from Bilderberg. Writers and editors for The Washington Post, Financial Times, Bloomberg and The Economist also are represented this year, among several other news anchors and media company owners.

Such “reporters,” like the government officials with whom they mingle, always leave the public trust at the door upon entering Bilderberg, where the hotel of choice is completely sealed off from real reporters, normal customers, and the general public and surrounded by heavily armed private security and publicly financed police.

Bilderberg 2018 Wraps Up – 2020 US President Anointed?

As in years past, the Bilderberg Group meeting was attended by a U.S. presidential hopeful looking for the coveted “Bilderberg Boost.” Given President Trump’s anti-globalist, America-first actions when it comes to trade and funding of NATO, the elite controllers are clearly not interested in seeing him win a second term in office. 

By Mark Anderson

The secretive globalist group Bilderberg held its annual gathering at the five-star Torino Lingotto Congress resort in Turin, Italy, June 7-10. This writer and several activists from groups like We Are Change were actively covering the weekend confab, though anti-Bilderberg protests were nearly nonexistent and mainstream media coverage appears to have been the leanest it’s been in several years.

“I never heard any kind of demonstration group,” Swiss photographic correspondent Thomas Gasser, who reported from Turin. He added that the alternative media on hand, including We Are Change groups, Press for Truth, AFP, and a few others, constituted the only “resistance” outside the hotel where the Bilderbergers huddled.

Think the IRS Never Loses Cases? Think again!

The meeting was heavily attended by national security and military personnel, including former CIA chief David Petraeus. According to the independent “Truthstream Media” news website, their presence suggests that more aggressive policies toward Russia are being considered, running an ever-greater risk of a military standoff, provoked largely by NATO’s increasing movement of military assets toward the Russian border.

In terms of the American domestic connection, the attendance of Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) is of particular interest. While about 6,000 acres of Colorado forest land was being swallowed up by wildfires, threatening about 2,000 homes as Bilderberg 2018 began, the two-term Democrat opted to remain in Turin with the Bilderbergers.

Hickenlooper’s media representative, Shelby Wieman, responded to an inquiry from this AFP writer, stating: “Gov. Hickenlooper took personal time to travel to Bilderberg (at his own expense). The governor has shown leadership and interest throughout his years in public service on many of the topics the conference addressed, including workforce development and the future of international trade.”

What she didn’t mention was that Hickenlooper, a former Denver mayor, has considered running for president, which The Denver Post on March 12 announced with the headline, “Behind the scenes . . . Hickenlooper inches toward 2020 presidential race.”

Given the pervasive concern among the Bilderberg-affiliated intelligentsia that President Donald Trump is kicking the New World Order to the curb piece by piece—as evidenced by Trump thumbing his nose at the snooty G-7 and enacting certain tariffs to offset the massive trade deficits the U.S. has with Germany ($64 billion) and Italy ($32 billion)—the world managers who inhabit Bilderberg and its sibling groups should be expected to scan the horizon for a candidate to push against Trump in 2020.

The reason is simple: Trump has hampered NAFTA’s overhaul and firmly protested the U.S. paying way too much for NATO while member nations that run huge trade surpluses with the U.S. don’t even cover the benchmark 2%-of-GDP membership fee to be in the military alliance. He has also backed out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership and Paris climate accord. It’s clear the one-worlders don’t want to put up with Trump for two terms.

Therefore, all eyes should be on Hickenlooper and whether he will receive the coveted “Bilderberg boost” and suddenly become a shooting political star “destined” to stop populist Trump from serving until 2024.

More evidence of this comes from vaguely worded topics such as “the U.S. before the midterms” and “the U.S. world leadership,” which are on the official 2018 Bilderberg “discussion” list, allude to a focus on presidential politics.

It’s worth noting that Bilderberg’s official topics list has never been all-inclusive and the make-up of the meetings kicks the door wide open for individual discussions, planning, and deal-making, apart from group activities.

After all, sizing up top-tier “presidential material,” going back to Bill Clinton’s debut at the 1991 Bilderberg meeting in Germany just before he began occupying the White House, is sometimes part of Bilderberg’s function.

Globalist Groups Ramp Up Efforts to Quash Rise of Populism

The annual Bilderberg meeting has just wrapped up in Turin, Italy. Given this year’s program, it would appear this elite organization and its “lesser” allies are extremely concerned about the nearly worldwide rise of populism, a.k.a. anti-globalism.

By Mark Anderson

Bilderberg, historically seen as an isolated exercise in world power-brokering, has in recent times become the nerve center of a network of elitist organizations. A highly unusual twist this year, however, was that, as the 66th Bilderberg meeting in 64 years took place June 7-10 in Turin, Italy—with 128 participants from 23 countries—several other notable meetings convened at the same time.

The annual meeting of the G-7 nations—which typically meets before or after Bilderberg—instead met June 6-8 in Quebec.

The annual Forum on Global Cities was held June 6-8, sponsored by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs (CCGA) and the Bilderberg-connected Financial Times.

The NATO defense ministers’ meeting took place June 7-8 at the alliance’s Brussels headquarters, requiring NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg, an annual Bilderberg attendee, to shuttle between Italy and Belgium.

Just prior to this, the Trilateral Commission (TC) meeting was held in London Nov. 3-5, 2017, involving Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross—who attended Bilderberg last year in Virginia. The TC, a younger sibling of Bilderberg now in its 45th year, covered several topics that dovetail with this year’s Bilderberg agenda.

Kingdom Identity

Attendees of this year’s Bilderberg gathering who also took part in that TC meeting include: George Osborne, a former UK chancellor of the exchequer-turned-media magnate; Zanny Minton-Beddoes, a Bilderberg Steering Committee member who’s chief editor of the Economist magazine; and longtime European Central Bank chief and past Bilderberg attendee Jean Claude Trichet.

“The theme of the 2017 Trilateral Conference,” a TC summary stated, “was the causes of the rise of populism across the West—and what to do about it. The victory of Donald Trump and the UK’s vote for Brexit in 2016, the rise of authoritarian, nationalist governments in Poland and Hungary, and the ground gained by the radical right in elections in France, Austria, and elsewhere had some common roots.”

Bilderberg took up “populism in Europe” as its first listed topic for 2018, while the Chicago Forum on Global Cities stepped up its promotion of the “global cities” scheme, charting a course to unconstitutionally reorient government power away from the national level to the city level and, in the process, battle the rise of populism over grave concerns that an uncontrolled populist uprising that unites the right and left could further frustrate and even scuttle globalist designs.

The unmistakable tactic of using the global cities scheme to help undermine populism (i.e., nationalist governments that want out of the European Union and its suffocating dictates) was confirmed at Chicago Council on Global Affairs (CCGA) meetings over the last couple years, some of which this writer attended.

The “Trilaterals” also expressed alarm over “increasing hostility to immigration, exemplified in the U.S. by the success of Trump’s slogan to ‘build this wall,’ in the UK by the Leave [Brexit] campaign’s successful attempt to put EU free movement rules at the center of the debate, and by Hungary and Poland’s refusal to take in asylum-seekers stuck in Italy and Greece. Another cause [of populism’s gains] was poor economic performance and frustration at high levels of inequality after 2008. Still another was the Internet and other forms of digital technology, which is both amplifying the voices of radicals and has the potential to bring about a big restructuring of the economy, which will create winners and losers.”

The 2018 Bilderberg agenda indicates that the Bilderbergers took the baton from their TC brethren concerning populism and at least four other topics among Bilderberg’s 12 agenda items: “The inequality challenge,” “free trade,” “U.S. world leadership,” and “the ‘post-truth’ world.”

“The ‘post-truth’ world,” which stems from the above TC statement about “digital technology . . . amplifying the voices of radicals,” apparently refers to the alternative media and activists who are challenging the mainstream media outlets and elite think tanks with which Bilderberg and its network partners collaborate.

For the record, 12 media entities represented nearly 10% of the attendees at the 2018 Bilderberg gathering—on hand to collaborate with the plutocratic cabal rather than uphold the public trust and objectively report on Bilderberg.

The Bilderberg topics “U.S. world leadership” and “free trade” are highly reflective of not only the TC’s November meeting but also recent statements to a UK House of Lords committee by Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass. According to his testimony—which received no press coverage—the deep-seated power brokers that Haass represents are acutely concerned that President Donald Trump may pull out of, or drastically overhaul, NAFTA, the World Trade Organization, and other free-trade entities to the point where the U.S. will limit itself to bilateral trade deals and possibly end its leadership role in the trade, financial, and military arrangements put in place at the Bretton Woods accord in the waning days of World War II.

These nightmarish concerns expressed by Haass—ultimately meaning that Trump may flout the entire “rules-based international order” formulated at Bretton Woods—evidently have come true, at least in several respects, given Trump’s defiant demeanor at the G-7.

The G-7 was formerly the G-8 until Russia was excluded in 2014, as Western power brokers deemed it the new “enemy,” prompting the word “Russia” to appear on the list of Bilderberg topics several times, including this year. But now some pundits speculate that the G-7 could become the “G-6 + 1” as Trump becomes ever more antagonistic toward this economic grouping. Its ministers—expressing the very same “protectionist” concerns covered at the TC and Bilderberg meetings—are convinced that tariffs could only spell doom and spark trade wars, even though the Trump White House has insisted that instituting a 25% tariff on steel and 10% on aluminum is largely a sovereign, national security move, amid plans to revitalize the U.S. industrial base.

Bilderberg Officially Announces Topics, Attendees

Early in the morning on June 5, the shadowy globalist group known as Bilderberg officially released the location of its 2018 gathering as well as the list of its attendees.

By AFP Staff

In advance of its annual gathering June 8-10, Bilderberg posted to its website a list of topics on its agenda as well as the attendees who will be there when the shadowy globalist group gathers this upcoming weekend.

Every year, behind locked and guarded doors, 120-140 of the western world’s most powerful business executives, bankers, financial speculators, bureaucrats, and politicians gather together in secret at a five-star resort somewhere in Europe or North America to discuss the most pressing issues of the day—and figure out ways to profit off of them.

This year, Bilderberg picked Turin, Italy for its meeting location. AFP exposed the secret meeting site months ago, but Bilderberg only officially confirmed this on June 5, in an official press release. The global group has not identified what resort it bought out to host the meeting, but early reports indicate it will likely be the NH Torino Lingotto Congress hotel in Turin. AFP attempted to book a room for the weekend of June 8-10, but the entire resort was booked solid, a good indication that this will be the place.

Think the IRS Never Loses Cases? Think again!

To no one’s real surprise, a press release by the Bilderberg group identified the key topics of the confab, which will include U.S. politics in the age of President Donald Trump as well as the rise of populism.

Specifically, Bilderberg listed the following topics on its website:

  • Populism in Europe
  • The inequality challenge
  • The future of work
  • Artificial intelligence
  • The U.S. before midterms
  • Free trade
  • U.S. world leadership
  • Russia
  • Quantum computing
  • Saudi Arabia and Iran
  • The “post-truth” world
  • Current events

“As of today, 128 participants from 23 countries have confirmed their attendance. As ever, a diverse group of political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia, and the media has been invited,” Bilderberg’s press release noted.

Regular attendees of Bilderberg will be there this year, including Henry Kissinger, Robert Rubin, and Lawrence Summers. Of note, however, is that James H. Baker from the Pentagon will be attending as well as PayPal founder and noted conservative libertarian Peter Thiel.

The full list of attendees can be found here.

In its press release, Bilderberg teased readers by acknowledging that attendees follow so-called “Chatham House rules,” meaning they are forbidden from discussing what transpires at the event. Only recently, however, has Bilderberg come out of the closet officially. For years, the group was deadly serious about maintaining its secrecy, enforcing a strict blackout on reports in the mainstream media.




Bilderberg Group Reveals 2018 Meeting Date, Location

With more advance notice than ever before, the Bilderberg Group has revealed its 2018 meeting location and dates in an invitation to Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic issued following the recent World Economic Forum in Davos where Ms. Brnabic spoke.

By Mark Anderson

More advance notice than ever before has been given this year regarding where and when the infamous, highly secretive Bilderberg Group will next meet. Apparently, the “Bilderbergers,” as they’re often called, will return to Italy for the first time in 14 years, having last met there in 2004 in the city of Stresa.

According to a Jan. 29 news item at the Independent Balkan News Agency (IBNA) website, Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic “received an official invitation to the Bilderberg meeting of this year, which will be held in Turin, Italy, June 7-10.” AFP will continue to monitor this matter, in case Bilderberg changes its meeting plans.

Besides the Stresa meeting, the Bilderberg Group has met in Italy two other times, in April 1987 and April 1965, both in Villa d’Este.

The 2018 meeting will represent the 66th time the Bilderbergers have gathered. The group first met in 1954 at the Hotel De Bilderberg in the Netherlands—hence its name—with the help of CIA funds that were floated to nurture the early European Movement. The movement planted the seeds for the European Union superstate, according to Richard Aldrich, professor of international security at the University of Warwick in England.

The Bilderberg Group meets annually at the world’s most ritzy hotels and resorts, surrounded by an armada of armed private security and local police, for a closed-door, three-day forum involving about 140 top corporate titans, technology gurus, select royalty, central bankers, former and current intelligence officials, think-tank fellows, and select reporters and editors who leave their ethics and notebooks at the gate. The sitting head of NATO attends every year. Most attendees come from Europe and North America.

The group is managed by a 31-member steering committee that currently includes nine Americans, including Alphabet Inc. executive chairman Eric Schmidt, NEOM CEO Klaus Kleinfeld, Palantir Technologies CEO Alex Karp, and Marie-Josée Kravis, a Hudson Institute fellow and president of the American Friends of Bilderberg—which raises funds for the group’s meetings but claims to be a type of charity in its Form 990 tax filings—even though its “charitable” activities are reported as addressing issues surrounding the transatlantic alliance.

True Story of Bilderberg Group
What’s the truth about this shadowy group? Find out from AFP’s Bookstore.

IBNA specified that Ms. Brnabic’s presentation to the New Leaders for Europe meeting at the recently held World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland—an annual, comparatively open confab of high flyers from government, business, entertainment, technology, and academia—was reportedly impressive enough “to grant her access to one of the most prestigious annual meetings worldwide, the Bilderberg Group.”

The invitation came from Bilderberg Steering Committee Chairman Henri de Castries, former chairman and CEO of multinational insurance company AXA Group. In the fall of 2015, this AFP writer, for an exclusive report, caught up with de Castries when he gave a speech at the Brookings Institution, a key Bilderberg network partner.

There, de Castries outlined a plan for Europe first conceived decades ago that carries well into the future, the scheme to create a “United States of Europe,” in the which the EU’s formerly independent nations would further surrender their sovereignty, evidently to the point of no return, for the sake of making the EU a seamless building block of world government.

An official Government of Serbia press release dated Jan. 28 announced the prime minister was invited to Bilderberg following her Davos appearance. It noted Ms. Brnabic has been a member of the New Leaders for Europe, which “is made up of young politicians and decision makers from several European countries,” since 2016. The release did not specify whether she has accepted Bilderberg’s invitation.

That press release noted, “As the only prime minister from the region, Brnabic also participated in the preparation of the ‘Renew Europe’ report of the World Economic Forum, in which she prepared a section on migration and border issues.”

Last year, AFP covered Bilderberg’s return to Chantilly, Va., attended by five current U.S. officials, including two senators and three Trump administration officials. Official topics included: “The Trump Administration: A Progress Report,” “Trans-Atlantic Relations: Options and Scenarios,” “The Trans-Atlantic Defence Alliance: Bullets, Bytes and Bucks,” and “The Direction of the EU,” along with: “Why is Populism Growing?” “Russia in the International Order,” and “The War on Information.”

Myopic Media Refuses to Name Bilderberg

U.S. corporate media is quick to report on “behind-the-scenes” parties influencing the Trump administration … as long as that list doesn’t include the Bilderberg Group. 

By Mark Anderson

CHANTILLY, Va.—The mind-numbing mainstream media blackout of the highly secretive Bilderberg group that was evident when this AFP writer wrote an initial June 3 dispatch on the June 1-4 Bilderberg meeting in Chantilly, Va. was still in place on Tuesday, June 6, at least in terms of American orthodox media.

Additional calls to the media to inquire about their Bilderberg coverage plans went unanswered, and a call to Chantilly’s Westfields Marriott to seek a press conference was completely brushed off, as the lady who answered the phone didn’t even bother getting a security spokesman or someone else to handle the simple request.

Bug Out While You Still Can! Learn More…

Yet, the Washington Post and the Kansas City Star—which in recent years broke the usual stifling silence about Bilderberg—instead published items on June 4 and June 5 pertaining to the very concept of illicit, behind-the-scenes influence on government, even while these “courageous” news outlets somehow failed to include Bilderberg in that important equation.

Here are two clear examples of such media misfires:

  • ITEM: As this AFP writer picked up the June 4 Washington Post, the front-page headline “Shadow network aided Trump’s rise to power” leapt off the page. But a quick read of the text disappointingly revealed that the nefarious “network” being named was the “far right” and some its champions, as perceived by the big media, Trump advisor Stephen Bannon and 1960s leftist radical-turned-conservative author David Horowitz.

Take note that the Post is all aflutter that these guys and their associates—but clearly not Bilderberg—are networking to strongly influence the policies of the U.S. government from backstage.

Furthermore, the Post is fretting that Horowitz created in 1988 the Center for the Study of Popular Culture as a “charity,” while noting that IRS rules that regulate charities stipulate “a substantial part” of a tax-exempt charity’s funds cannot be spent on “lobbying” or “carrying on propaganda.”

However, the Washington Post Company itself, as this writer has often reported, gave $25,000 to the American Friends of Bilderberg (AFB), according to the its 2008 “990 PF” tax filing.

The AFB is registered as a charity in the state of New York, though as a “private foundation.” Since the only listed activity of the AFB is addressing “problems of the Western Alliance” mainly by “sponsoring the annual Bilderberg Meetings,” there is no evidence whatsoever of AFB charitable activities, but plenty of evidence of “carrying on propaganda”—even while a substantial part of the AFB’s funds does go into tinkering with the economic and political machinery of the West via the hyper-exclusive Bilderberg Meetings.

  • ITEM: The Kansas City Star—which last year ran a sizable story about Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) attending Bilderberg for the first time in Dresden, Germany—went stone-cold silent on Bilderberg this year (even though Graham attended this year’s Bilderberg, too) but still managed to run a guest column on how Graham has been exercising improper and excessive influence in U.S. dealings with foreign nations, especially Israel. The columnist is Robert Leonard, an anthropologist who hosts a public affairs program for KNIA/KRLS radio in Knoxville/Pella, Iowa.

Graham, as Leonard wrote in the Star, spoke at a political event (back when Graham sought the GOP nod to run for president) where the moderator noted that he was impressed by Graham’s prominence on the world stage and that Graham had taken a phone call from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Gideon Elite book cover

“I was surprised,” Leonard wrote. “I have always assumed that conversations between world leaders and members of Congress happened at the request of the administration and that they didn’t happen during a car ride across the Iowa countryside by a senator running for president with guests and staffers in the car.

“But my gut told me it was wrong. I could see the conversation only as potentially undermining the Obama administration’s official policy toward Israel. After all, Graham was then in the opposition party and seeking the nomination for president.”

Watch an on-the-scene video from AFP’s Mark Anderson by clicking below:

Leonard added: “Let’s assume that Graham’s behavior is consistent with that of other members of Congress. If that’s true, it means that they’re talking willy-nilly with world leaders, their staffs and representatives. All the time. One can also assume that these conversations are not benign. They are all negotiations of one sort or another.”

What Leonard meant (though he didn’t go far enough) was that sitting senators and other elected and appointed officials should not be making policy with foreign leaders (or by extension, with foreign corporate titans) “off the grid” and independent of the executive branch.

Yet both Sen. Graham and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who are bookends in terms of the pro-war, neoconservative faction of the Republican Party, attended Bilderberg this year. So did four White House officials: equally hawkish National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Deputy National Security Advisor Nadia Schadlow, and Christopher Liddell, a strategic advisor.

Speaking of Graham’s highway diplomacy, Leonard asked, “When would such a conversation constitute treason?”

But what Leonard doesn’t note is that the Logan Act, a law from the 1790s and still on the books, prohibits U.S. citizens from lobbying, negotiating or engaging in deal-making with foreign officials without express permission from the head of state. And the Bilderberg Meetings, which have been happening for 65 years, represent the ultimate convergence of corporate, media, banking and political power behind closed doors, where no press conferences are given and only vague topics and an attendees list are published to placate onlookers.

Bilderberg 2017 Wraps Up in Virginia – Dispatch #1

AFP’s on-the-ground Bilderberg Meeting 2017 reporter’s Saturday morning dispatch reveals that, not surprisingly, U.S. corporate media is pretending, again this year, that participation by active American government office-holders in the secretive meeting is not worth reporting on. Fortunately, American Free Press and a few other alternative, real news sites are picking up the slack.

By Mark Anderson

CHANTILLY, Va.—On the morning of Saturday, June 3, the Bilderberg group’s 65th meeting since 1954—though vitally important, given the identity of this year’s attendees, the key topics they secretly discuss, and the relevance of those topics to major political and economic developments—had evidently been ignored by the national mainstream and regional media.

This, despite the fact that this AFP writer placed several calls and emails to newspapers ranging from the Arkansas Gazette-Democrat to the South Carolina Post and Courier—in those cases due to the Bilderberg meeting attendance of two sitting U.S. senators: Tom Cotton of Arkansas (R) and South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham (R).

Calls to the senators’ offices were not returned as of Friday, June 2. AFP will press the staffs of these senators to make some kind of statement on what role the senators played at Bilderberg 2017.

Notably, a Post and Courier editor, even while conceding that the paper published a story about Sen. Graham attending Bilderberg for the first time last year in Dresden, Germany, sounded fairly certain that the paper would not cover Bilderberg this year, while characterizing the hush-hush Bilderberg meeting as mildly interesting, at best.

Bug Out While You Still Can! Learn More…

The Washington Post—whose parent company has made a $25,000 donation to the American Friends of Bilderberg “charity” group on at least one occasion in 2008—was also contacted, as was The Washington Times and USA Today. No calls or emails had yet been returned as of this writing. Same goes for the Kansas City Star, which, like the Post and Courier, ran with the story last year of Sen. Graham jetting to Dresden.

This current press indifference is especially odd given that Trump’s national security advisor, H.R. McMaster, is attending Bilderberg 2017, as is Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, strategic advisor Christopher Liddell, and, as it turns out, Deputy National Security Council Assistant Nadia Schadlow. This is perhaps the largest White House contingent to ever attend Bilderberg.

Combine that with the hot topics inside and outside the Bilderberg meeting at the Westfields Marriot in Chantilly, Va. and the press silence becomes even harder to comprehend:

  • Trump’s “Prexit” decision to exit the Paris climate accord (which the press is obsessing with) while multiple corporate interests within Bilderberg are affected by that decision, including Bilderberg’s longtime partner, Royal Dutch Shell;
  • And, among other things, the larger question, missed by the mainstream press, of whether Trump’s Prexit decision means NAFTA is the next thing in line to “walk the plank.” Trump already exited the Trans-Pacific Partnership, after all.

Indeed, the big picture is this: The Bilderberg Group’s overall credo, with only minor exceptions, is to uphold the Paris Agreement over a professedly unshakeable belief in manmade global warming and the need to combat it no matter the cost to everyday people; plus, the Bilderberg worldview is also attuned to undying support for far-reaching free-trade agreements.True Story of The Bilderberg Group Book

Thus, the important matter that the U.S. press is so far missing—partly illustrated by a broadly worded official Bilderberg 2017 topic listed at its website, “The Trump Administration: A Progress Report”—is whether Trump will follow up on his pull-outs from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Paris accord by also pulling out of another holy grail of the Bilderberg universe: The North American Free Trade Agreement.

Furthermore, AFP found that a Bilderberg-member newspaper that sent two people to Bilderberg this year, The Financial Times (which sent common Bilderberg attendee Martin Wolf and added fellow writer Gideon Rachman), had run a story about Commerce Secretary Ross being engaged in tense negotiations with sugar barons as part of the NAFTA accord, wherein Ross is reportedly trying to protect U.S. sugar growers from Mexican interests dumping cheap sugar in the U.S. market.

The catch is that Ross reportedly has a June 5 deadline to iron out the many wrinkles in the often heated negotiations that involve other sugar interests as well. Given that Bilderberg runs through June 4, the question is how Ross could afford to take the time to attend Bilderberg and still work through this matter, besides the question of whether the sugar deal will have a bearing on the U.S. staying in NAFTA in the first place. Either way, this matter is seen as an inside Bilderberg topic in a more unofficial manner.

Meanwhile, on the ground in Chantilly on day two of Bilderberg June 2, the protestors and alternative media members together numbered about 40 on a grassy strip along the hotel’s outer property—well away from the hotel, which is engulfed on all sides by trees and thick vegetation, making it one of the most difficult Bilderberg meeting locations to photograph attendees.

IRS Loses Cases

Still, the alternative media produced constant radio and livestream video reports. The expectation for June 3 was that a larger group of protestors and alternative media was to show up around noon, to bolster the visibility of what many say is a growing awareness of Bilderberg—despite the American mainstream media’s absence, with some protestors and alternative commentators telling AFP that the situation may reach the point where the orthodox press won’t be needed anymore anyway.

New World Order to Meet in Chantilly in Early June

Will the recent deaths of longtime Bilderbergers David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski and the rise of the new Technorati, including Google executive Eric Schmidt, change the course of this infamous gathering of the world’s elite? Meeting in the U.S. for the first time in five years, AFP will be on hand in Chantilly, Va. to document—as extensively as possible, given the no-media cloak of secrecy—the secretive gathering.

By Mark Anderson

The 65th annual gathering of the shadowy Bilderberg group will take place June 1-4 at the Westfields Marriott Hotel in Chantilly, Va. Already, 131 participants from 21 countries have confirmed their attendance. This marks Bilderberg’s first North American meeting in five years, and AFP will be on the scene since the confab is being held only 25 miles from Washington, D.C. Last year, the group gathered in Dresden, Germany.

President Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster is listed as an attendee for this year’s Bilderberg meeting. Other U.S. officials attending, who are currently serving in public office, are Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Tom Cotton (R-Ark.). While Graham jetted to last year’s Bilderberg meeting in Germany, Cotton evidently is attending his first-ever Bilderberg meeting. McMaster, Graham, and Cotton all share a neoconservative ideology of aggressively patrolling the world to push American “democracy” and monopoly capitalism, while fostering hostility toward Iran, Russia, and Syria. This fits the Bilderberg credo of using U.S. power to control the natural resources and economic machinery of as many nations as possible, while co-opting or overthrowing those nations that stand firm with their own sovereignty.

According to Bilderberg’s own anonymous press office, the 13 “key” topics “for discussion” this year include: “The Trump Administration—A Progress Report; Trans-Atlantic Relations—Options and Scenarios; The Trans-Atlantic Defense Alliance: Bullets, Bytes, and Bucks; The Direction of the EU; Can Globalization Be Slowed Down?; Jobs, Income, and Unrealized Expectations; The War on Information; Why is Populism Growing?; Russia in the International Order; The Near East; Nuclear Proliferation; Current Events; and China.”

Bilderberg consists of 140 mainly North American and European corporate moguls (including select big media), government ministers, treasury officials, parliament members, high-technology leaders, certain royalty (including Bilderberg co-founder Prince Bernhard’s daughter, Netherlands Queen Beatrix), and central bankers who annually skulk into the world’s top hotels in order to cross-pollinate to pursue One World Ltd. and related financial and political dealings.

Gideon Elite book cover

The group has an American arm, the American Friends of Bilderberg, which files annual 990 tax returns as a so-called charity and is registered in the state of New York under that amusing pretense.

The danger-ridden, tyrannical goal of creating an all-consuming, corporate-ruled world super-state dubbed the New World Order has been incrementally advanced since Bilderberg first met in Holland in 1954 under the auspices of Jesuit-trained European consolidator Joseph Retinger and his agent, Netherlands Prince Bernhard. This explains why Bilderberg goes to such lengths to keep the details of its inner-workings so secret, while functioning as an off-the-grid world networking and planning forum for private governance benefitting the banking and corporate classes. A core tactic is to parallel but eventually supersede the nation-state itself, eventually canceling effective, genuine nationhood altogether.

Bilderberg still maintains that it goes to all the trouble and expense of meeting just to chat off the record, allegedly without detailed minutes kept, with the reporting press disallowed only so attendees can relax and speak freely. Supposedly, no decisions are made or consensus is sought. Attendees, they say, must not reveal afterwards what was discussed, under Chatham House rules, though they apparently are free to use some of the ideas from the meetings without attribution.

NWO in Action cover

However, this is also a way of rigging the game so everything stays secret, even while topics that include the word “strategy” contradict Bilderberg’s position that it’s just a forum for intellectual banter about megatrends in the world.

An important question to ponder going into Bilderberg’s 2017 meeting is how the March 2017 death of longtime Bilderberger David Rockefeller and the May 26 death of Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission co-founder Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was the Carter administration’s national security advisor, will affect the status and agenda of Bilderberg—especially since the Trilateral group, which formed in 1973 and by its own admission put Carter in the White House, has for decades been a key “spoke” in the Bilderberg central “hub,” much like the Brookings Institution.

With the passing of key members of Bilderberg’s “old guard” and Rockefeller-Brzezinski associate and accused war criminal Henry Kissinger not long for this world due to his advanced age, will the younger Bilderbergers—especially Google executive Eric Schmidt and other young attendees mainly representing high technology in the “deep state” areas of surveillance, artificial intelligence, and even trans-humanism—take Bilderberg in a sharply new direction?




New Movie Exposes Bilderberg

Daniel Estulin will premier his new film, “Bilderberg, the Movie,” this week in New Orleans. Mark Anderson sat down with him ahead of the screening to learn more about the new film and Estulin’s research on the shadowy group.

By Mark Anderson

NEW ORLEANS, La.—Noted Bilderberg author-researcher Daniel Estulin will soon be screening for the first time in North America his documentary, “Bilderberg, the Movie,” to bring the background and meaning of the Bilderberg group’s highly secretive annual meetings to the greater public.

The Bilderberg meetings consist of 140 (chiefly European and North American) central bankers, finance ministers, former and current legislators, former and current prime ministers, corporate titans, and media moguls and editors who attend but agree not to report on the proceedings. European royalty, NATO and other military brass, select think-tank fellows from the Brookings Institution and other noted institutes, and high-tech gurus like Google founder Eric Schmidt, who represent some of the “fresh blood” among Bilderberg’s aging old guard, are also usually present. They are held at only the most posh hotels and resorts, which are totally cut off from the public during the three days of meetings.

The last U.S.-based meeting was held back in 2012 in Chantilly, Va., meaning the group is overdue to return to North America.

Bug Out While You Still Can! Learn More…

Estulin spoke to AFP in advance of the May 24 showing of the 62-minute film at the Prytania Theater in New Orleans, La. He told this AFP writer about the considerable challenges and intrigue he encountered in making the movie.

Listen to the interview with Estulin by clicking below.

“I started working on this film in 2011-2012 when a . . . Spanish producer, who’s a great fan of my work, approached me about making a documentary,” Estulin explained. “We signed a deal. . . . [But] six months later he was ruined. If you believe in conspiracy or coincidence theories, three banks called in his loans at the same time. He basically went bankrupt.”

A year went by, and another group decided to make a Bilderberg film, with Estulin as co-producer. That film was essentially done by the late summer of 2015.

“Then one day my co-producer comes to me and says that he sold his 50% stake in the film to Baker & Taylor—that’s a subsidiary of the Carlyle Group,” he added. “So I basically knew . . . that there would be no way to get the film out. It was sabotaged. . . . The Carlyles are the Bushes, the bin Ladens, the Bakers. . . .”

Estulin had to reshoot the film to make sure it was 100% his creation, going to 13 cities in 11 countries in the process and spending about $200,000 of his own money.

To give would-be viewers a taste of the movie’s content, Estulin said that two phases of world control—carried out via a Bilderberg-nurtured monopoly- capitalist approach, based on breakneck economic growth for its own sake—have failed. So, when Bilderberg meets this year, he understands the group will be struggling to redefine itself and in the process come up with a model for a third phase of economic-political control.

The main problem with the “Bilderberg outlook,” summarized Estulin, is that it’s based on economic speculation and seeks to overturn the nation-state itself. Instead, it seeks to rely on the formation of regional economic blocs created by merging individual countries into larger entities. It’s no accident that Bilderberg’s early meetings nurtured the creation of ever-larger economic-political blocs, leading to today’s shaky European Union of 28 formerly independent countries—shaky enough to prompt Brits into voting last June to exit the dictatorial superstate.

In contrast, noted Estulin, President Donald Trump’s approach is rooted in a  longstanding competing system that at least keeps countries more or less intact and focuses on tangible, commonsense goals like rebuilding infrastructure.

Bilderberg to Meet in Virginia This Year

The exclusive, elite Bilderberg Meeting location for 2017 has been announced, and Mark Anderson will be there, again this year, to ensure their gathering is slightly less secretive than these global powerbrokers would prefer.

By Mark Anderson

With a little help from the Virginia police in the Fairfax County Sully District, as well as the obscure Bilderberg media-relations outlet and its May 19 late-coming online announcement, it’s been confirmed that Bilderberg 2017 will take place in Virginia, June 1-4, at the Westfields Marriot in Chantilly.

The Bilderbergers are naturally attracted to that snooty, secluded hotel, since they’ve met there before—in 2002, 2008, and in 2012, the year that Jim Tucker, the late AFP Bilderberg hound, made his last appearance covering the shadowy group after chasing these sons of smokestack billionaires since the mid-1970s.

The annual Bilderberg gatherings are perhaps the most exclusive and obscure among all the meetings of economic ministers (G7, G20 etc.), the World Economic Forum, and other, more familiar global groupings.

Bug Out While You Still Can! Learn More…

Encircled by an armada of private armed guards and publicly financed police, the Bilderberg Meetings, as they’re formally called, are totally closed to the reporting press and public, with the entire five-star hotel or resort of choice sealed off. Even the Bilderberg “sibling” group, the younger but larger Trilateral Commission. co-founded by the late powerbroker David Rockefeller, doesn’t resort to sealing off an entire hotel for itself.

The Bilderberg Meetings are the perfect convergence of public and private interests for the basic purpose of secretly charting the world’s economic and political destiny, although many other groups, including the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Royal Institute for International Affairs (Chatham House) are represented in some manner at Bilderberg and do their part in “the network” as well.

Gideon Elite book cover

The Bilderberg gatherings consist of 140 chiefly European and North American central bankers, finance ministers, former and current legislators, former and current prime ministers, corporate titans, and media moguls and editors who attend but agree not to report on the proceedings, thereby putting the public trust last.

Other participants include European royalty, NATO and other military brass, select think-tank fellows from the Brookings Institution and other noted institutes, and high-tech gurus from Silicon Valley, among others.

Coming out of last year’s meeting in Dresden, Germany, the Bilderbergers are facing an altered world, what with the U.S. president being Donald Trump—whose early actions as president included pulling the U.S. out of the Bilderberg-favored Trans-Pacific Partnership. Britain also voted just after last year’s Bilderberg meeting to exit the European Union. Early Bilderbergers, beginning with their first meeting in Holland in 1954, helped build the EU through all its intermediate stages to the present.

This AFP writer, having covered six previous Bilderberg gatherings, will travel to Chantilly to further discern the status of Bilderberg, to see if general public awareness of the group is rising or needs improvement, and to see if public protests are as strong as ever against one of the world’s most infamous private conferences.

Bilderberg functions as a world-networking and planning forum for the purpose of off-the-grid private governance for the banking and general corporate classes, whose officers and other representatives are sealed in the same hotel as key government officials. Those officials are in a unique, carefully concealed position to cut special wide-ranging deals for select corporations, even while the Bilderbergers groom select attendees for future important positions in government and the private sector.
