No More Denying Bilderberg

• AFP is America’s paper of record when it comes to global cabal

By Michael Collins Piper

AMERICAN FREE PRESS’s Jim Tucker puts it best: If 140 of the world’s best known baseball players or movie stars gathered secretly under armed guard at an exclusive resort for an entire weekend, every major newspaper and magazine and all of the tabloids would be on hand, clamoring to get inside, demanding to know what was going on behind those closed doors. All of the television gossip shows would be chatting about it regularly. The whole world would know about that secret meeting in a heartbeat.

But when 140 of the world’s richest financiers, industrialists and media titans, not to mention royalty and always a handful of major political figures from the major nations of the West get together under such circumstances, hidden away from public view and certainly discussing issues of concern to every human being, none of the major networks, none of the major newspapers, none of the pundits who posture as cynics dares to mention a word.

While many speculate about meetings of a variety of secret societies (some real, some not), truth-seekers are able to pinpoint the locations of the Bilderberg meetings and to actually on occasion get photographs of the participants, if only brief glimpses through the windows of limousines or slipping in and out of the elegant hotels where the meetings are conducted. In other words, there’s no longer any doubt about the existence of Bilderberg.

Here’s where the dispute comes in: while, for years, politically-correct types insisted there was no such thing as Bilderberg, saying it was a fantasy of conspiracy theorists of the right and the left, those folks who put out that line probably believed it.

In the meantime, the real-life big boys at Bilderberg admitted Bilderberg existed. After all, each year they’ve published for limited distribution a summary of that year’s meeting, copies of which have been procured by AFP. However, for public consumption they pooh-pooh the idea anything they were doing was of any consequence politically. The planet’s biggest power players were just getting together for tea and to chat about the latest cabbage roll recipes.

The question is this: Why has it been left to AFP (and its forerunner, The Spotlight) to carry the banner for truth as far as Bilderberg is concerned?


Is Bilderberg really irrelevant to the course of world affairs? And if so, why do many pivotal people consider Bilderberg attendance a “must? Why have members of the Rothschild and Rockefeller dynasties perpetually remained at the center of Bilderberg’s affairs?

Is it just a coincidence that measures discussed at Bilderberg ultimately roll out as public policies in those nations represented at Bilderberg and through the international agencies of influence—ranging from the World Bank to the International Monetary Fund and beyond—that are part of the Bilderberg network?

It was in 1971, at the instigation of The Spotlight’s publisher Willis Carto (today a consultant for AFP), independent reporters began covering Bilderberg. Carto himself and his wife, Elisabeth, traveled in 1975 to Cesme, Turkey to cover Bilderberg, where a participant in that gathering was conservative William F. Buckley, Jr., whose magazine, National Review, rushed then—as now—to assure its readers there was nothing amiss with Bilderberg.

In subsequent years, Carto sent Jim Tucker all over the world trailing Bilderberg, and in short order Tucker established himself as the foremost journalist on the planet when it comes to Bilderberg, bringing it the coverage it deserves despite the fact the big media in the United States has consistently chosen to ignore Bilderberg.

To be fair, The New York Times did mention Bilderberg years ago when one luminary had a fatal seizure coming home from a Bilderberg conference, meriting a brief note in his obituary in “America’s newspaper of record.” The Washington Post once mentioned Bilderberg, buried in a lengthy piece about then-Vice President Dan Quayle, who had reportedly impressed David Rockefeller at a Bilderberg conference.

Yet neither of these newspapers has ever once reported anything of substance regarding issues discussed at Bilderberg, let alone mentioning (if only as a social news note of interest to New York and Washington elitists—including Times and Post owners, executives and reporters—who populate the American contingent at Bilderberg) that the meetings are even taking place.

As far as the most recent Bilderberg reportage in the Washington press, those stories were not about the substance of Bilderberg but rather about the boisterous protests—led by Alex Jones—outside its meeting place in staid Chantilly, Virginia. AFP welcomes Alex and his bullhorn to the growing ranks stepping up to make much-needed noise about these intriguers.

AFP has often felt lonely in trying to expose Bilderberg, but now we’ve laid some serious groundwork for a coalition of like-minded people who think it’s time to bring Bilderberg to account.
