And oh, by the way……Henry Kissinger was in attendance.
A secretive international organization of some of the most important “movers and shakers” from North America and Europe are meeting this weekend to “foster dialogue” on issues that affect the lives of American citizens, as well as those of citizens in Europe and the rest of North America.
It is the 68th annual Bilderberg meeting, with 120 participants from 21 countries. Named after the hotel where they held their initial meeting in 1954, they discuss issues of interest to the globalist-minded attendees.
This year, the topics for discussion include geopolitical realignments, NATO challenges, China, Indo-Pacific Realignment, Sino-U.S. Tech Competition, Russia, Continuity of Government and the Economy, Disruption of the Global Financial System, Disinformation, Energy Security and Sustainability, Post Pandemic Health, Fragmentation of Democratic Societies, Trade and Deglobalization, and Ukraine.
Exactly what will be said on these topics and what action, if any, will be taken concerning them is highly confidential. According to their website, they operate under the “Chatham House Rule,” which states that participants “are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s) nor any other participant may be revealed.”
While many of the participants hold high-ranking government positions in their separate nations, “the participants take part as individuals rather than in any official capacity, and hence are not bound by the conventions of their office or by pre-agreed positions.”
So, what do they do at this conference? According to the Bilderbergers, they “take time to listen, reflect and gather insights. There is no detailed agenda, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken and no policy statements are issued.”
If one reads that statement carefully, one can get a pretty good idea of the purpose of the annual meeting. First, they “gather insights.” In other words, they are told what the globalist position is on the various issues that are discussed. Secondly, the assertion that “no resolutions are proposed,” and “no votes are taken,” is rather meaningless. After all, if they are there simply to “gather insights,” there is really nothing to vote on.
While the official statement is that there is no “detailed” agenda, this does not mean that there is no agenda. An examination of the topics for discussion essentially establishes the globalist agenda of the group. For example, this year they are discussing “disinformation.” The fact that President Joe Biden attempted to establish an office of “disinformation” in the Department of Homeland Security — and that the Biden Administration considers opposing viewpoints on issues such as gun control and climate change to be “disinformation” — gives us a pretty good idea of what Biden’s fellow internationalists consider “disinformation.”
Then there is the list of attendees, drawn from the elites of Europe and North America — government officials, corporate heads, media moguls, and the like. Some examples from government include the minister of foreign affairs for the European Union; the director of the Central Intelligence Agency; the ambassador of Ukraine to the United States; the president of the European Council; the secretary of commerce; a U.S. senator; members of the House of Commons; heads of militaries; and the vice president of the European Commission.
From the corporate world, there is Albert Bourla, the chairman and CEO of Pfizer. If one wonders just how Pfizer was able to get the lucrative contract to develop a Covid vaccine, this should provide some understanding. It might also explain why Pfizer announced that its vaccine was ready one week after the 2020 presidential election, rather than one week before — although Pfizer protested that politics had nothing to do with the timing of the announcement.
Then, we have the CEO of Sweden’s Volvo Group. And for all of the supposed competition between the corporate world and organized labor, Mary Kay Henry, the international president of the Service Employees International Union — one of the most leftist of all labor unions — made her way to the nation’s capital to “gather insights.”
Several powerful individuals from the world of media — both in the North America and in Europe — are also present at the conference, including a writer from The Atlantic, the vice-president of Facebook, the editor-in-chief of The Economist, and the former chairman of Google.
Other familiar names at the conference include the old globalist Henry Kissinger and retired political General David Petraeus.
We can expect these politicians, corporate executives, media leaders, and the like to soon begin parroting the “insights” they have “gathered” at this conference on issues such as “disinformation,” trade, post-pandemic health, “sustainability,” and NATO “challenges.” (Perhaps the biggest challenge for NATO is to explain why an organization supposedly created to combat the threat of the Soviet Union continues to exist).
Additionally, we can expect to see some attendees eventually rise to high positions in their governments, if they are not in such positions already. For example, when he was still a rather obscure governor of the small state of Arkansas, Bill Clinton attended the 1991 conference. The next year he was elected president of the United States, defeating another former attendee, George Herbert Walker Bush. In 1964, and again in 1966, Gerald Ford was at the meeting. Less than a decade later, he was president of the United States.
These meetings are not just a long weekend of free-wheeling discussion of current events. The attendees are very powerful individuals in their own countries who are developing strategies to enlarge the scope of supernational “cooperation.” For all the media’s talk about “democracy,” the voice of the little guy and gal is not heard at these conferences. If you have ever wondered why certain issues — and certain positions on those issues — suddenly emerge and are parroted in the media, the corporate world, entertainment, and by those in government, you would probably know the answer if you could be a “fly on the wall” at one of these meetings.
As 19th-century British prime minister Benjamin Disraeli said, “Governments do not govern, but merely control the machinery of government, being themselves controlled by the hidden hand.” One wonders what Disraeli would have to say about the Bilderberg meetings. Source
This morning as I thought about this “Secret Society” meeting in D.C. – less than a half hour from me, I found myself becoming angry. I mean, who elected them? They elected themselves!
But then reality hit me square between the eyes. I thought “What can I do about these people?” And then that still small voice inside said “Pray.”
And I did.
