From June 9-12, while the American media was focusing its cruel klieg lights on, oh, Betty White switching her brand of adult diapers or something, over a hundred of the world’s most powerful financiers and policymakers convened in Switzerland to nearly inaudible fanfare.
One would think an event that clustered together high-ranking officials from some of global finance’s biggest names—the Federal Reserve, the IMF, the WTO, World Bank, Bank of Canada, European Central Bank, Citigroup, Barclays, Chase Manhattan, Goldman Sachs, and numerous European national banks—would have attracted more attention.
One would think wrong.
It would seem to be a major news story when corporate titans from Microsoft, Coca-Cola, Alcoa, Nestlé, Fiat, Airbus, Siemens, Shell, and Pfizer joined all of the above behind closed doors, wouldn’t it?
Only to a paranoid mind.
And only a lunatic would suggest that bringing together avowed globalists such as David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger alongside such globalist and quasi-globalist organizations as the Council on Foreign Relations, the European Commission, the European Council, the Center for Global Economy and Geopolitics, and the United Nations World Food Programme would have anything to do with attempts to shape a global agenda.
So please, for the sake of your sanity, sweep away all such suspicions from your mind.
Since 1954, the Bilderberg group—named after the Hotel de Bilderberg in the Netherlands, home of their first meeting—have secretly convened yearly in Europe and America to ear-splitting silence and a blinding absence of media coverage.
But don’t ask why. There’s no reason. No reason at all. Nothing to see here, folks. Keep moving along. This is merely a bunch of old, washed-up farts sipping tea, playing miniature golf, and giving each other prostate massages.
If you suspect they are doing anything more than that, you are a “conspiracy theorist”—a meaningless ad-hominem attack used to shame and silence anyone who’d dare suggest that the world’s elites would ever so much as lift a pinkie to maintain, consolidate, and even enhance their power.
The Washington Post used the “conspiracy theorist” smear regarding anyone who’d dare assail the inviolably secret sanctity of this year’s Bilderberg convocation. But it neglected to mention that its owner, Donald Graham, attended last year’s Bilderberg meeting as an invited guest.
The BBC dismissively alluded to “wacky cabals,” reptilian shape-shifters, James Bond, Freemasonry, “extreme fear,” and, of course, anti-Semitism. Any skepticism about the Bilderbergs and their motivations was linked, locked, and forever welded to The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.
That’s a strange accusation, seeing as how prominent Bilderbergers have undeniably Nazi roots. Former Nazi Party member Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands was one of the Bilderberg group’s founders, and David Rockefeller’s Chase Manhattan Bank was financially enmeshed with the Nazis.
But the Protocols analogy is instructive because, like it or not, it irrefutably proves the existence of political conspiracies. Allegedly a Jewish plot for world domination, the document has been widely denounced as a fraud perpetrated by Russian Tsarists. But if that’s the case, weren’t those Tsarist apologists CONSPIRING to deceive the public? Either way, a political conspiracy was involved.
And don’t dare consider that the CIA helped orchestrate and fund the Bilderbergers’ creation, because we all know the CIA bleeds tens of billions of our tax dollars yearly under strict instructions to never lie to us.
No. Scrape every last fleck of such suspicions from your mind with a rusty wire brush.
If you don’t, the mincing Ford Foundation toady Chip Berlet will scoff at you as someone who’s full of “baloney” and who spouts “malarkey.” What Chip doesn’t seem eager to reveal is that the Ford Foundation helped finance America’s first Bilderberg meeting back in 1957. Instead, Chip has a tendency to link all Bilderberg skepticism to anti-Semitism, which is brain-explodingly ironic considering the Ford Foundation’s namesake.
Despite what the servile media ball-washers of the world’s golfing elite insist, alleging that international financiers manipulate global events and profit from hopelessly bloody wars is not the sole domain of schizophrenics and racists. Fervid abolitionist Lysander Spooner made the same sort of allegations way before the Protocols appeared with his searing 1869 polemic No Treason. The highly decorated Marine General Smedley Butler claimed that in 1934, a group of industrialists approached him and asked him to help them overthrow FDR. He demurred and in 1935 penned the indispensable War is a Racket. Even that famously paranoid anti-Semitic tinfoil-hat-wearing loon John F. Kennedy—before someone blew out his brains—is on record condemning “secret societies.”
Still, the world’s smackably smug paid pundits sneer at the very idea of the Bilderbergers or any other group attempting to consolidate world finance and establish a “New World Order.”
It’s not as if any prominent Bilderbergers have ever alluded to such a thing.
From David Rockefeller’s Memoirs:
Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.
From Denis Healey, member of the Bilderberg Steering Committee:
To say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair.
So why would anyone think that the Bilderberg group convenes yearly for anything beyond harmlessly polite banter and a lavishly catered buffet? What are you—nuts?
