The Freemasons. The Illuminati. These are secret organizations, many of which suspect they have an extreme, shameful impact on society around the world. But they seem like little fries compared to the Bilderberg Group, an annual gathering of many of the richest and most powerful people in the world to make plans for global issues. It is as if the group was founded with the specific attempt to raise suspicions of conspiracy theorists.
So who is this changing group? What was officially attributed to them or accused of? Do they have to worry at all? We'll see if we can find answers from the available data.
0th The Beginning
Almost every source of the Bilderberg meetings reports that they started in 1954 at the Hotel de Bilderberg in Oosterbeek, the Netherlands. The truth was that planning and organization began to some extent in 1952 in response to the accession of Greece and Turkey Organization of the North Atlantic Treaty and many elites in Europe make it clear that the struggle against communism in the USSR and in China requires more coordinated efforts. The first meeting was reportedly primarily concerned with how to manage Germany's accession to NATO. This was such a difficult subject that it dragged on the 1955 meeting.
From the outset, the meetings appeared to have approximately 130 participants and approximately two-thirds to be European, while the rest were American. Usually only about a third of the participants are politicians, the rest are business people, scientists, media personalities, etc. They probably had no idea how much paranoia their first meeting over the years would create.
. 9 Henry Kissinger
For many, this former US Secretary of State is one of the darker characters who have often attended the Bilderberg group meetings. It is known that he went to meetings in the 90s and at every meeting from 2016 to 2019. Given Kissinger's support for military dictatorships in South America that violate human rights, such as Argentina's Jorge Videla ] and Chiles Pinochet, and his move to bomb civilians in Vietnam and Cambodia, it is understandable that many do would not want to be in a position with such influence.
Kissinger himself did very little to alleviate the fears that his engagement caused. During the meeting of 1992 for example, he is said to have said: “ Today the Americans would be outraged if UN troops marched into Los Angeles to restore order. They will be grateful tomorrow. “Given the notorious distrust that many Americans have of the United Nations in general, let alone the resistance of almost every nation to regime change.
. 8 Protesters
In recent years, meetings of the Bilderberg group have attracted angry people, with hundreds of people carrying signs saying "Stop New World Order" or "Smash the Empire". It is meant that there have been some counterproductive groups that have protested together. For example, in 2012 both the far-right tea party movement and the far-left Occupy Wall Street movement were associated with 9/11 truth-seekers. No cases have been reported so far in which the demonstrators have committed violence, and armed demonstrators appear to be rare enough that only one person had brought a weapon to the 2012 protest mentioned above .
By far the best known demonstrators of the Bilderberg meetings are Alex Jones and Jesse Ventura. Jones traveled to Bilderberg meetings, including Hertfordshire Great Britain in 2013. Jesse Ventura started 2009 with an episode of the TruTV program Conspiracy Theory in which he claimed that the group had plans proposed to thin out the population using a combination of " Diseases and Vaccine " while trying to infiltrate the meeting. Given that Conspiracy Theory ran two more seasons after this episode, we can at least comfort ourselves when we know that they don't have the power to simply silence everyone they do want.
. 7 Brexit
Attacks on the Bilderberg group were shot in the arm with a real shot in 2016 when they were accused of promoting the Remain movement during the Brexit referendum. Already on March 14, three months before the Momentus referendum, the Conservative MP Phillip Hollobone stood in front of the House of Commons and claimed that the Bilderberg leaders would "unite against the British people" Right Party UKIP had publicly accused Bilderberg since 2013 of supporting EU-friendly parties in the UK. It received approximately the same attention and criticism as President Barack Obama's official visit.
The allegation became somewhat credible because the Bilderberg website claimed that Brexit was an agenda item for this year's meeting. On the other hand, the meeting was only on June 8, 1965/95, just a fortnight before the referendum vote, and the participants were expressly "not bound by their office's conventions or previously agreed positions". It is hard to imagine what they could have done to turn the referendum vote the other way, even if they had decided that they should have.
. 6 Unlisted guests
On paper, the Bilderberg organizers appear to be remarkably open about who their attendees are. It was well known that Bill Clinton went to a meeting in 1991 when he was governor of Arkansas. This was exactly the right time to reaffirm the idea when he was elected president in 1992 that Bilderberg was a collection of royalists. This was only reinforced when the then opaque MP, but later Prime Minister Tony Blair, was present in 1993. When a meeting is so informal, a lot can happen above and below it at the same time.
Much attention was drawn to the meeting on May 13, 2019, in which both Jared Kushner and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo would attend. Pompeo reportedly participated primarily to try to sell the other participants to support the US print campaign against Iran. It turned out that Pompeo was not actually invited to the event, although Kushner did. While future trade agreements would indicate that Pompeo was unsuccessful (some sources claim that he was not even approved), there is a clear possibility that there were unannounced, perhaps not officially invited, participants.
. 5 The 2010 Leak
A common statement made by the Bilderberg group is that no official minutes are kept to make the meeting more informal. Presumably the rich and powerful are more willing to say what they really think if there is no written record. But as it came out in 2010, the claim that no logs were kept was incorrect.
In October this year, Wikileaks published the allegedly non-existent minutes of the 1955 to 1958 meetings, the 1960 session, the 1963 session, and finally the 1973 session. In addition, Wikileaks published the Das protocol Book published by the Roosevelt Institute in 2013, senior researchers Giles Scott-Smith and Valerie Aubourg (19659060) Atlantic, Euratlantic or Europe-America (19659061), contained quotes from the Steering Committee's 1966 minutes. While none of the published minutes mentioned names or shocking revelations that confirmed any conspiracy theories, they strongly suggested that the Bilderberg meetings were documented more thoroughly than the public would have believed.
. 4 A World Government
Some demonstrators have accused Bilderberg of having launched a One World Government, as this is expected from an international organization that meets privately with the powerful. Many end-time Christians don't want this because the 17th chapter of the New Testament book of Revelation supposedly says that such a government will be a sign of the apocalypse. If there are members or organizers of Bilderberg meetings who want to dispel this reputation, then Lord Dennis Healey cheerfully said in an interview with the Guardian Labor MP and former Defense Secretary in 2001 about the worst that is possible.
While dealing with the various participants from old meetings (for example, Bill Clinton claimed to be there in 1991 only to be happy and that nobody thought he would be the next president), Healey said: " to say we strive A one-world government is over the top, but not entirely unfair. “He kept talking about all the wars, poverty, etc. that were caused by the international conflict. However, it was undisputed that he provided an almost perfect quote for any conspiracy theorist wishing to call the congregations a tricky globalist agenda.
. 3 Connection to the Third Reich
In addition to the allegations made by One World Government, Anti-Bilderbergers can point out that one of the founders, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, joined the NSDAP in 1933 English: emagazine.credit-suisse.com/app/ He actually joined the infamous SS in 1934. Bernhard claimed that he only did this to avoid some university exams, and when he met Adolf Hitler personally, it was a waiver of German citizenship. When Bernhard married in 1937, Hitler was said to be the only head of state in Europe who did not send him a wedding present.
In Bernhard's favor, at the beginning of the Second World War, he gave up his National Socialist connections as firmly as possible. In 1940 he led Dutch troops against the Wehrmacht, and when the Netherlands fell, he fled to Britain with some of his troops. In 1942 he became a pilot with the Royal Air Force. His most notable tasks included organizing food drops for starving Dutch citizens in Operation Manna (19659005) (which was to continue as part of the Marshall Plan to rebuild Western Europe after the end of World War II) and bombing V-1 launch sites , Until 1944 he led all Dutch troops in the liberation of the Netherlands. He was satisfied to be present at the surrender of the Third Reich. It is misleading to say that there is a strong connection between the Nazis and the Bilderberg group.
. 2 The canceled meeting
Despite all protests and attempts at infiltration, there was only one year in which the Bilderberg meeting was canceled. This year was 1976. To understand it, we have another entry dedicated to Prince Bernhard . Since the end of World War II, he had contributed to the establishment of the World Wildlife Fund in 1961, but in 1976 he was accused of making bad decisions for his life again.
In February 1976, the armaments company Lockheed Aircraft Corporation (which later merged into Lockheed Martin) admitted to having bribed Bernhard $ 1.1 million to accept F-104 G Starfighter jets into the Dutch Air Force. Bernhard would never be officially exempt from the bribe, and it would never be determined where exactly the money went. But since 1976, when the Vietnam conflict in the United States no longer grew in importance, the anti-war mood in the country was so strong that none of the invited Americans was willing to attend the scandalous meeting of the monarchs. By modern standards, canceling a momentum gathering of captains of industry and monarchs is a rather curious scandal.
. 1 Hosting Headaches
As Lord Denis Healey claimed, Bilderberg is less of an honor than a headache for the host country. Even if this amount of demonstrators has not yet become violent, the cost of law enforcement to protest against around 130 people with global influence is so high that British taxpayers in 2013 paid £ 1.3m million for it had to pay a meeting near Waterford. That means none of the cost of renting five-star hotels for four-day meetings.
On the positive side, the event is almost always sponsored by companies. The sponsors offered to pay UK taxpayers £ 500,000 for this 2013 bill. Even if there are no participation fees, every invited participant is expected to bear their own travel and accommodation costs . One might argue that knowing that corporate sponsors are buying access to the rich and powerful is not reassuring (to the extent that former Google CEO Eric Schmidt attended a meeting in 2019). It's also not reassuring how insistent Bilderberg is that the meetings are not influential.
Dustin Koski has never been to a Bilderberg meeting, but if enough of you buy a copy of his fantasy book he may one day .
