Kleptocrats Should Be Jailed Using 18th Century Law

By Mark Anderson —

A little-known law that dates back to the days of President John Adams could be used to prosecute United States officials and citizens who rub elbows and affect U.S. policymaking with the wealthiest elites at the annual secretive Bilderberg meeting.  Outside the 2014 Bilderberg gathering in Copenhagen, Denmark, Italian Parliament member Carlo Sibilia drove home the point that no elected or appointed government officials from any nation should ever attend Bilderberg.

The reason is simple: Those with decision-making power attend Bilderberg for the express purpose of being able to speak and network with each other without any reporters allowed inside to report the proceedings. And since no meeting minutes are kept—according to Bilderberg’s own admission—there is no way of knowing what transpires inside these hyper-exclusive meetings.

This means that there’s no available Bilderberg paper trail regarding any deals that are discussed, struck or altered to affect millions of people under free-trade schemes or under economic-austerity measures that impoverish unsuspecting populations.  Is this the kind of meeting that any officials, with any degree of direct or indirect policymaking power, should attend? The answer is “no.”

In the latter 18th century, the U.S. Congress passed a law known as the Logan Act (18 U.S.C. §953). It says that even private citizens should not negotiate, cavort with, collaborate or collude with foreign officials when policymaking could result.

This means that public officials from the U.S.—like John Kerry, who attended Bilderberg in 2012 while a sitting senator—should never attend that globalist gathering. Elected officials who’ve attended Bilderberg have done so under the cover story they can be trusted because they’re “only” attending in a private capacity, but that puts them even more at odds with the Logan Act.

The “private” citizens who attended this year’s Bilderberg meeting included former National Security Agency chief Keith Alexander, Google CEO Eric Schmidt and super-fixer Henry Kissinger. These men, especially Alexander, have broad knowledge regarding the vast telecommunications network and data collection details and procedures that affect U.S.  security, and citizen freedom and privacy.  The only safe, rational course of action is to halt the Bilderberg meetings, the ultimate goals of which are kept under lock and key. And whether or not the cabal’s get-togethers are halted, U.S. attendees, wherever applicable, should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
