Every year 120 of the world’s most powerful people attend a meeting shrouded in secrecy. The invitation only guest list has included US Presidents such as Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama, Prime Ministers like Tony Blair, Governors such as Rick Perry, Federal Reserve Chairmen like Ben Bernanke, royalty, media magnates, and many of the world’s top CEO’s. There is no uniformity in how the invitations go out. One year a particular King of a country may be invited, but not all Kings are invited, and the invitation is not based on who is most powerful, but rather on similarities in agendas and perspectives. Most Americans are totally oblivious to this meeting and have absolutely no idea what the Bilderberg group even is, which is due to a virtual media blackout.
The Bilderberg group first started 57 years ago in 1954 in an effort to force Western nations to work more closely together on issues of security, monetary policy, and trade. For the first few decades of its existence, the meetings were generally denied and many members of the press were harassed or intimidated for attempting to cover the secret meeting. With the growing use of the internet as an information outlet, the Bilderberg group and the mainstream media could no longer pretend these meetings didn’t exist. Photographs were being leaked, which caused quite a commotion in the conspiracy theory world. As a result, the Bilderberg group started to issue a press release that lists the names of most of the attending members, but refrained from including any substantive information with respect to the agenda or any consensus that was formed during the meeting.
It should be noted that the Logan Act prevents sitting American politicians from engaging in secret meetings like this, but that has not stopped a plethora of American politicians from attending.
Conspiracy theorists often speculate that the Bilderberg group is attempting to broker a one world government. And this theory was actually corroborated by Denis Healey, one of the founding members and steering committee chairmen, who said, ”To say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair. Those of us in Bilderberg felt we couldn’t go on forever fighting one another for nothing and killing people and rendering millions homeless. So we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing.”
The real question that we have to ask ourselves is why a meeting of the most powerful people in the world is virtually ignored in the mainstream media? When even one or two of these powerful, famous people meet together in another location there are almost always reporters swarmed around taking pictures of them doing even the most mundane things, but in this case there is almost no coverage.
No minutes are published or any kind of release of information given after these meetings have concluded. Even years after attending a meeting, members of this exclusive group tend to take the information of these secretive meetings to the grave. The lack of leaks from this meeting are kind of baffling given how often government officials tend to give anonymous reports to the press. As a result, conspiracy theorists are allowed to run rampant without being refuted.
The following is an extremely rare instance of the mainstream media’s coverage of the Bilderberg group:
