The Bilderberg Group,
clique of the richest, economically and politically most powerful and
influential men in the Western world, who meet secretly to plan events that
later appear to just happen.

events do not occur by accident; They are made to happen, whether it is to do
with national issues or commerce; and most of them are staged and managed by
those who hold the purse strings.

1954, the most powerful men in the world met for the first time under the
auspices of the Dutch royal crown and the Rockefeller family at the luxurious
Hotel Bilderberg in the small Dutch town of Oosterbeek. For an entire weekend, they debated the
future of the world. When it was
over, they decided to meet once every year to exchange ideas and analyze
international affairs. They named
themselves the Bilderberg Group.
Since then, they have gathered yearly in a luxurious hotel somewhere in
the world to try to decide the future of humanity. Among the select members of this club
are Bill Clinton, Paul Wolfowitz, Henry Kissinger, the Rockefeller family,
Zbigniew Brzezinski, Tony Blair and many other heads of government, businessmen,
politicians, bankers and journalists from all over the world. [ Their membership
is a virtual Who’s Who from the spheres of politics, business, banking,
journalism, and NGO’s.]
in the more than fifty years of their meetings, the press has never been allowed
to attend, no statements have ever been released on the attendees’ conclusions,
nor has any agenda for a Bilderberg meeting been made

lobbying if they aren’t allowed to know what their respective talk about at the
Group’s secret gatherings?
[news] blackout exists despite the fact (or because ?) they are annually attended by Presidents of the
International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the Federal Reserve; by chairmen of
100 of the most powerful corporations in the world… by Vice-Presidents of the
United States, Directors of the CIA and FBI, Secretaries-General of NATO,
American Senators, members of Congress, European Prime Ministers and leaders of
opposition parties; and by top editors and CEO’s of the leading newspapers in
general rule, Bilderberg meetings are never mentioned in the media, since the
mainstream press is fully owned by the Bilderbergers.
a private club where presidents, prime ministers, international bankers and
generals rub shoulders… where the people running the wars, the markets and
Europe say what they never dare say in public. This is the Bilderberg Group, and it is
among the most secretive of any organizations worldwide. The reason that no one is willing to
break the group’s conspiracy of silence or stand up to it is revealed in the
words of French broadcaster Thierry de Segonzac: “The Bilderbergers are too powerful and
omnipresent to be exposed.”
Netherlands’ Prince Bernhard subscribed to the belief that severe economic dips
like the Great Depression could be avoided if responsible and influential
leaders could actually manage world events behind their necessary public
posturing. For this reason, he was
asked to organize the first meeting of “like-minded” representatives from all
facets of the world’s economic, political, industrial and military realms in

members “run” the central banks and are therefore in a position to determine
discount rates, money-supply levels, interest rates, and the price of gold, as
well as which countries receive loans.
By manipulating money up and down the business chain, the Bilderbergers
create billions of dollars for themselves.

important to distinguish between active members who assist annually and others
who are only invited occasionally.
About eighty members are regulars who have attended for many years.
Fringe people who are invited to report on subjects related to their sphere of
influence or professional and academic knowledge, are clueless about the formal
structure behind the Bilderberg Group, and remain in absolute ignorance of the
Group’s greater goals and universal objectives. A select few are invited because
Bilderbergers think they may be useful tools in their globalist plan
and are later helped to reach very powerful elected positions.
most dramatic example of a “useful recruit” was the obscure Governor of
Arkansas, Bill Clinton, who attended his first Bilderberg meeting at
Baden-Baden, Germany, in 1991.
There David Rockefeller told Clinton why the North American Free Trade
Agreement (NAFTA) was a Bilderberg priority and that the group needed him to
support it. The next year, Clinton
was elected President, and –guess what?—he was a strong proponent of
Bilderberg Group’s chief fear is organized resistance. Members do not want the common people of
the world to figure out what they are planning for the world’s future: mainly a

by one world army, and financially regulated by one “World Bank” using one
global currency. They
International Identity: by
empowering international bodies to completely destroy all national identity
through subversion from within, they intend to establish one set of universal
values. No others will be allowed
to flourish in the future.
Control of the People: they
plan to direct all humanity to obey their wishes. The blueprint of their plan is
chillingly described in Zbigniew Brzezinski’s book, Between Two Ages: America’s
Role in the Technocratic Era. He foresees, under the New World Order, no middle
class, only rulers and servants.
Growth Society: In a
post industrial period, zero growth will be necessary to destroy vestiges of
general prosperity. When there is
prosperity, there is progress.
Prosperity and progress make it impossible to implement repression, and
you need repression if you hope to divide society into owners and
State of Perpetual Imbalance: By
artificially manufacturing crises that will put people under continual
duress—physically, mentally, and emotionally—it is possible to keep people in a
perpetual state of imbalance. Too
tired and strung out to decide their own destinies, populations will be confused
and demoralized to the extent that, “faced with too many choices, apathy on a
massive scale will result.” This according to John Coleman, Conspirators’
Hierarchy, America West Publishers 1992.
Control of Education: One
of the reasons for the European Community, “American Union” and the future Asian
Union to seek greater control of education in general is to allow One World

ignorant of the lessons of history, individual liberties and the meaning of

expanding NAFTA throughout the Western Hemisphere into South America, an
“American Union” will eventually form similar to the European
of NATO: As
the UN intervenes in more trouble spots globally, as it is in Afghanistan now,
NATO becomes the UN’s world army.
Socialist Welfare State: a
socialist welfare state, where obedient slaves will be rewarded and
non-conformists targeted for extermination.
Jefferson, one of the Founding Fathers of American democracy explained it this
way: “Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of the
day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period and pursued
unalterably through every change of ministers [Presidents], too plainly prove a
deliberate systematical plan of reducing us to slavery.”
Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)
the Trilateral Commission (TC)
CFR is headquartered in New York City in the Harold Pratt House on the corner of
Park Avenue and 68th Street.
As early as March 26, 1922, John F. Hylan, Mayor of New York, in a speech
said, “The real menace of our republic is the invisible government, which like a
giant octopus, sprawls its slimy length over our city, our state and
nation. At the head is a small
group of banking houses generally referred to as “international bankers.” This little coterie of powerful
international bankers virtually run our government for their own selfish
February 23, 1954, Senator William Jenner warned, in a speech, “Today the path
to total dictatorship in the United States can be laid by strictly legal means;
unseen and unheard by the Congress, the President, or the people… Outwardly we
have a Constitutional government.
We have operating within our government and political system another body
representing another form of government, a bureaucratic elite which believes our
Constitution is outmoded and is sure that it is the winning side…All the strange
developments in foreign policy agreements may be traced to this group who are
going to make us over to suit their pleasure.”
Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. has called the CFR a “front organization” for “the heart
of the American establishment.”
further confusion, there is another coexisting organization with the same
one-world government objective, except its members represent global trade
alliances: North America, Western Europe, and Pacific Asia. It’s called the Trilateral Commission
(TC) and was founded, and financed by David Rockefeller in 1973. Before establishing this organization,
he tested the idea for forming the commission at the 1972 Bilderberg Group
meeting in Knokke Belgium. And
of the same individuals who belonged to the CFR and the Bilderberg Group also
joined the TC.

Bilderberg Club and one of its most sinister.
appreciate the extent of power the Bilderbergers, CFR and TC exercise, it is
enough to recall that almost all of the presidential candidates for both
[American] parties have belonged to at least one of these organizations, many of
the U.S. congressmen and senators, most major policy-making positions,
especially in the field of foreign relations, much of the press, most of the
leadership of the CIA, FBI, IRS and many of the remaining organizations in
Washington, CFR members occupy nearly all White House cabinet
a Democrat, a Republican, a Conservative or a Liberal is in power, the opposing
rhetoric spouted by the candidates apparently have little to do with who
actually wins the elections: the decision makers who pull the strings stay the
same, because cabinet seats are always held by CFR members. Even as U.S. presidents come and go the
CFR’s power and agenda remain the same.
February 1971 edition of a Moscow-based Russian magazine, International affairs,
[p. 63-68] carried an article titled, “Ways and Means of U.S. Ideological
Expansion.” It analyzed America’s
propaganda efforts: “Psycho-political operations are further subdivided into
strategic psycho-political operations that focus propaganda at small groups of
people, such as academics or experts, capable of influencing public opinion and
tactical psycho-political operations that focus propaganda at the masses through
mass communication media (i.e. newspapers, radio, television, textbooks,
educational material, art, entertainment, etc.).”
same year, Thomas R. Dye… described the process by which “public opinion” is
established: “This opinion is formulated by the dominant Council on Foreign
Relations members who belong to an inner circle called the “Special Group” that
plan and coordinate the psycho-political operations used to manipulate the
American public, and through a vast intergovernmental undercover infrastructure…

Clinton has appointed three Secretaries of Defense—William Cohen, William

Secretary for International Security Affairs Lynn Etheridge Davis has been

my FBI source continued, “with whom do you suppose Lynn Etheridge Davis’
transition to the new administration of Barack Obama has been accompanied by
much optimism and hope for “change.” The affiliations of some of his close
associates, however, must be cause for concern.

What Makes Sense
hundred and seventy years ago, Galileo Galilei was persecuted for teaching that
the Earth was a round planet that revolved around the sun. The Catholic Church and much of the
citizenry reviled the great man because they were terrified that this truth
would upset the social order. As
someone has said, “the problem is people’s inherent unwillingness to face things
of which they are afraid, thereby scapegoating and sacrificing their fellows to
an evil they dare not confront themselves.”
for the day and the hour in which men and women of honor will recognize that
dignity, kindness, integrity, trust, and love of their fellow beings are as
indispensable to the survival of the human race as Galileo’s discoveries
were. These principles of humanity
should be enshrined on some document somewhere, so that should a future despot
decide to betray Humanity once again, he will pay dearly for

about inner faith and conviction, which public opinion, bribery, lust for money
and power cannot influence. [It is] about the integrity and honor of many
individuals. It is about helping
people to learn to think, and be independent in their thoughts, even from the
so-called experts, masterfully represented by every major media group who would
tell them which conspiracy… not to believe.
