People have been talking for years about secret groups that pull the strings and rule the world. And for a long time it was rumors and crazy talk of men having secret meetings. But it has been revealed that this Bilderberg Group is the real deal. These high and mighty members of the elite don't hide the fact that they're meeting all the time-right in our backyards! They only hide what goes on inside their meetings. Do the members control nations... economies... food supplies... even medicine? Most definitely. Are they out to thin out the population? As long as they're behind closed doors they've got deniability.
The Birth of Bilderberg
From May 29 to May 31, 1954, the very first meeting of the Bilderberg Group was held in the structure from which its name is derived, the Hotel de Bilderberg, near Arnhem in the Netherlands. Initiated by Polish political advisor Józef Retinger, the Group's professed inaugural aim was to combat growing anti-Americanism and to forestall the future growth of any political entity that could threaten the world, as Nazi Germany had done so recently. The Group was promoted by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands; the head of multinational food, beverage and cosmetics producer Unilever, Paul Rijkens; and in the United States by Walter Bedell Smith, then head of the CIA. Fifty delegates from 11 Western European countries attended the first conference along with 11 Americans. Like Noah's Ark, the goal of the Group was to have one liberal and one conservative attendee from each participating country, so that a broad political spectrum would be represented.
The first Bilderberg Group discussed the issues of the day—the rise of Communism, the rebuilding of Europe and how a future world war might be avoided. The meeting was thought so successful that Retinger, now acting as permanent Secretary, decided the Group should gather annually.
Each year, about 130 guests converge on a different location to participate in the Bilderberg Group. The list of past attendees is the crème de la crème of international politics, industry, media and energy. Former Presidents Bill Clinton and Gerald Ford attended in 1991 and 1996, respectively. Other attendees have included Senators Sam Nunn and John Edwards; Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice; Prime Ministers Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair; the King of Spain and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands; editors from The New York Times and Washington Post; Bill Gates; the heads of IBM, BP, Shell Oil and Barclays Bank; and Ben Bernake, Chairman of the Federal Reserve.
The food is rumored to be spectacular.
The Bilderberg Group issues no official press releases, has no website and does not comment on its past or present attendees. The media is not invited to any of its meetings and even though minutes are recorded, they are strictly confidential. All proceedings take place according to Chatham House rules, a measure which provides anonymity to speakers even within the confidential meeting minutes.
What Do They Want?
Over the course of human history, the former four things have been used by men and women to gain the latter. The giving, taking away, or making it known that one’s behavior can affect the giving or taking away of these things, make up the machinations of power. But where does this power lie? With presidents, billionaires, celebrities and royalty? With intellectuals, entertainers, media titans or businessmen? Is that power earned or given? Who is really in charge?
Some people claim that the unfolding of world events is not merely the aggregate of random individual actions, but a specific predetermined plan, enacted by a small group of unelected power brokers, acting behind closed doors and answerable to no one. Could that be the reality? That’s the claim that dogs an organization called the Bilderberg Group, a shadowy secret society born in the ashes of World War II. Its membership is a fiercely guarded secret and its mission unknown to all but its initiated followers. There is evidence that it’s been involved in choosing international leaders, manipulating the global economy and pressing for a unified world government. Some believe its overarching goal is even more insidious: the complete enslavement of the world's countries and wholesale slaughter of most of the global population.
