Revealed: Guestlist for secretive Bilderberg includes Osborne, Balls, BBC Trust chief, spies, bankers and royalty
Chancellor is most senior British figure to attend in Telfs-Buchen, Austria
Osborne is the only serving UK politician named on the official list
Ex-Labour MP Ed Balls and BBC Trust chairman Rona Fairhead expected
Bosses of Santander, JP Morgan, HSBC, Shell, BP, Google and Airbus
By MATT CHORLEY, POLITICAL EDITOR FOR MAILONLINE

PUBLISHED: 17:38, 8 June 2015 | UPDATED: 19:49, 8 June 2015
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3115748/Guestlist-secretive-Bilderberg-Conference.html

George Osborne, his former Labour rival Ed Balls and BBC Trust chairman Rona Cameron are to attend the secretive Bilderberg Group conference, it emerged today.

Politicians, bankers, spies, business leaders and royalty will rub shoulders at the conference, later this week, held this year at Telfs-Buchen in Austria.

The talks are shrouded in mystery because no record is kept of who politicians meet or what is discussed.

Former shadow chancellor Ed Balls, who lost his seat in last month's election, will attend the conference alongside BBC Trust chairman Rona Fairhead

Since its inception in 1954, Bilderberg has held annual gatherings of 120-150 invited political leaders and business experts.

Those on the guest list this week include the heads of banking and financial giants including Deutsche Bank, Santander, AXA Group, JP Morgan, HSBC, BlackRock and Goldman Sachs.

Senior figures from Royal Dutch Shell, BP, AXA Group, Google, Airbus, Fiat Chrysler, LinkedIn, Siemens and Ryanair are also expected.

Conspiracy theorists believe this is where leaders plot world domination. Officially, it is claimed it is designed to 'foster dialogue between Europe and North America'.

The group describes the conference as 'a forum for informal, off-the-record discussions about megatrends and the major issues facing the world' and states that the private nature of the meeting allows participants to 'listen, reflect and gather insights' without being bound by the conventions of office or by pre-agreed public positions.

There is no detailed agenda, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued.

Those on the guestlist include (left to right) former European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso (left), Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary and and Nato General Secretary Jens Stolberg

Mr Osborne is the most senior British politician expected to attend the four-day conference, which is due to begin on Thursday.

In a move which will likely raise eyebrows, he will be joined by Mr Balls, the former Labour shadow chancellor who lost his seat in last month’s general election.

Ms Fairhead, who has faced criticism for her links to HSBC since taking over the BBC Trust, is also expected to be in Austria.

Former MI6 chief John Sawers, chairman of Macro Advisory Partners, is listed to attend.

Other Brits listed to attend are Margus Agius, chairman of PA Consulting Group, Ann Dowling, president of the Royal Academy of Engineering, Zanny Minto Bedoes, the editor-in-chief of The Economist and Martin Wolf. A columnist from the Financial Times.

Senior figures from around the world include Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, the President of Austria Heinz Fischer, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel and ministers from Sweden, the US, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland and the Netherlands.

Bilderberg Group: Conspiracy or talking shop?

Former World Bank President Robert Zoellick, who now chairs an advisory board for Goldman Sachs, (left) and HSBC chairman Doug Flint (right)

Jim Messina, a former Obama adviser who worked on David Cameron’s election winning campaign in Britain, is also on the list.

Guests also include Thomas Ahrenkiel, director of the Danish Intelligence Service, former European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and Nato General Secretary Jens Stolberg.

The controversial group met in Watford in 2013, when there were protests outside and a heavy police presence.

Tory MP Ken Clarke, then a Cabinet minister, defended his decision to attend the four-day conference.

He was called to give an emergency statement to the Commons, but dismissed conspiracy theories about the secretive conference as ‘total, utter nonsense’ and questioned why sensible MPs would be ‘taken in by this sort of rubbish’.

Forget the G7 summit – Bilderberg is where the big guns go
Covering issues from Europe to terrorism and IT, the lesser known Bilderberg policy conference includes prime ministers, CEOs from banks, airlines, oil and the arms industry, and even George Osborne

As one summit closes, another opens. Thursday sees the start of the influential Bilderberg policy conference, which this year is being held in Austria, just 16 miles south of the G7 summit, and in a similarly inaccessible luxury alpine resort. The participant list for the conference has just been released by the organisation, and some big names leap off the page.

No fewer than three serving European prime ministers will be attending, from the Netherlands, Finland and Belgium. They will be discussing “European strategy” with the head of Nato, Jens Stoltenberg, and the president of Austria, Heinz Fischer. Two European finance ministers are on the list: one Dutch, the other George Osborne. The UK chancellor is a regular attendee of the Bilderberg summit, and this year he will be showing off his post-election glow. Unlike that other Bilderberg regular, Ed Balls, who is being invited back despite having by some considerable distance the weakest job title on the list: “former shadow chancellor of the exchequer.


Bilderberg 2014: George Osborne and the man at the centre of everything

Europe’s hottest financial potato, Greece, is on the conference agenda, and it’s good to know Benoît Coeuré, a member of the executive board of the European Central Bank, will be there to discuss it in strictest privacy with interested parties, such as the heads of Deutsche Bank, Lazard, Banco Santander and HSBC.

The scandal-hit HSBC and everyone’s favourite vampire squid, Goldman Sachs, are both extremely well represented at this year’s conference. HSBC in particular by its chairman, its busy chief legal officer, and board member Rona Fairhead, who is also on the board of PepsiCo and chair of the BBC Trust. Good to know the BBC is in such safe hands.

Other financial luminaries on the list include the vice-chairman of BlackRock, the CEO of JP Morgan Asset Management and the president of the Royal Bank of Canada, which is the nation’s largest financial institution. Morgan Stanley will be represented in Telfs by board member Klaus Kleinfeld, who also runs the world’s third largest aluminium producer, Alcoa.

From the worlds of industry and manufacturing are some eye-wateringly big names. The CEO of Michelin is invited, along with the head of Roche, the CEO of Royal Dutch Shell, the chairman of BP, the CEO of Siemens Austria and the heads of various industrial conglomerates such as Techint and Investor AB, companies so large they’re hard to classify. Although “gigantic” goes some way towards it.

It’s a heady step up into the big league for Michael O’Leary, the CEO of Ryanair. He’ll doubtless be hoping to thrash out a few last-minute deals over dinner with the head of Airbus, Thomas Enders.

Apart from making holiday jets, Airbus is also one of the world’s biggest arms manufacturers, and the 2015 conference agenda has a distinct whiff of war. Chemical weapons threats and Nato are both set to be discussed. Luckily the head of Nato is there to discuss it.

As ever, foreign policy formation is a big part of the conference. Terrorism and Iran both make the agenda this year, and participants can expect a high-level briefing from senior US State Department official John R Allen, the special presidential envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter Isil. And it’s likely that the subject of Russia will be of interest to the German defence minister and deputy defence minister, both of whom have found the time this week to be in Telfs. As has the head of the Danish intelligence service, who will likely have a part to play in the session of cybersecurity.

Bilderberg at 60: inside the world's most secretive conference

Finally, it’s worth noting the growing presence of Google at Bilderberg. The company’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, is on the group’s steering committee; he’ll be joined in Austria by his vice-president for engineering, advanced technology and projects, and the vice-president of engineering for the not-at-all terrifying sounding Google DeepMind. They, presumably, will be leading the session on artificial intelligence. This will be listened to with great interest by Peter Thiel, the founder of PayPal and director of Facebook, as he continues his quest to merge with computers. But that’s another story.

For now, the story is: Bilderberg 2015 has an extremely high-powered participant list, featuring a large number of senior politicians and public figures. With participants this powerful, and an agenda containing this many hot topics, the Telfs policy conference is sure to be covered in depth by the world’s press. And by “sure to be”, I mean probably won’t be. For reasons that, as ever, escape me.

At the G7, we journalists were pampered – at Bilderberg we're harassed by police
Bilderberg uses the same security as the G7, just on a slightly different alp. So why don’t the lavish state resources extend to allowing free press reporting?

A mobile radar station supplied to cover the Bilderberg conference
Charlie Skelton
Wednesday 10 June 2015 16.14 BST Last modified on Wednesday 10 June 2015 16.35 BST
The clock has struck midnight. The dream is over. Back at the G7 summit, barely a day and 20 miles from here, I was treated like a prince. I was one of the chosen 3,000 journalists who were primped, pampered, fed and burped, given free T-shirts, gallons of goulash, buckets of booze, and all the cheesy footage of world leaders we could swallow. We lay back on our branded beanbags and were tickled silly by the gentle fist of the G7 PR machine. But not any more. The beanbag has burst.

“Step out of the vehicle and show me your identification!” A group of Austrian police officers took up position round my car. I pulled on the handbrake and opened the door. I swear to God one young officer shifted his hand to the butt of his sidearm, like I was about to rush them. All 12 of them. All armed. Maybe if there had only been 10 I might have taken them down using a slingshot improvised from my shoelaces, but not 12. I might be crazy but I’m not nuts.

Bear in mind, this checkpoint is all part of the same security operation, using the same police, that covered the G7. That much was admitted months ago by the Austrian authorities. It’s the exact same government-run operation that found room in its half-billion--or-so-euro budget to set up an air-conditioned accreditation centre in Garmisch and hand out branded lanyards and glossy press passes to journalists who had been duly checked out. But for some reason they can’t quite manage to do the same thing here.

Don’t worry, there’s enough money sloshing about to pay for the same military-grade security; the same military helicopters are circling the same skies around a slightly different alp. There’s a military radar station not 100 yards down from my hotel room. The beaming owner of a local schnitzel house told us how happy he was because all his 20 rooms had been filled with military personnel.

That’s right: Bilderberg has its own military radar station. It has its own no-fly zone. Nothing gets near it: there are police, right this minute, up on the surrounding mountaintops stopping hang gliders from getting airborne. Presumably to avoid them being shot down by the itchy security detail of the secretary-general of Nato.

The security operation is even using the same officers: policemen who two days ago had been making sure I had enough water on my protest walk and offering me a lift down the hill in their van are now searching my car and staring at me like I’m Jack the Ripper.

I completely understand the need to accredit us, but why isn’t that being done once, and done properly? They managed it in Garmisch, why not in Telfs? After all, we’ve got the head of Nato here, meeting for three days with the German defence minister (and her deputy), three european prime ministers, the president of Austria and the CEO of Europe’s second largest arms company. They’ll be thrashing out policy on terrorism and Russia. You think they shouldn’t expect journalists to be here covering this?

The Bilderberg summit gets state security, but there’s no quid pro quo. No state-run press centre. Media organisations, or at least the few that aren’t owned by the people inside the conference, need to start making a fuss. We need to be the ones doing the harassing for a change.

At one point, in my umpteenth roadside check, I turned round to see an officer taking my picture on his phone. I trotted over and gave him a card with my email address. “Do you mind sending me that photo? Just so I can remember this moment.” He mumbled something about not taking one, so I got my own camera out. “No photographs! You must not take pictures of police.” No, no, I assured him. Not my intention at all. I handed him the camera. “Could you take one of me?” A bit confused, he obliged – and promptly took one of me and his colleague.

I wonder if he’ll be charged under anti-terror legislation and thrown into jail for seven days for taking a photo of a policeman, because that’s what journalists here have been told. Back in Garmisch, the same cops being paid from the same budget were posing for photographers with heart shapes on their uniforms to show how loving and caring they are. Anti-terror legislation is a wonderfully flexible thing.

A friend of mine, a Swiss journalist who has been covering Bilderberg for longer than most, found himself surrounded by police in the supermarket car park as he finished his shopping. Another tired old “show me your papers” routine began. “You’ve checked me out a dozen times already,” he grumbled. “I’m going to be here all week, I don’t want to be checked every five minutes.” The lieutenant in charge of the checking shrugged: “We can check you as many times as we want. Open your car please.” My Swiss friend stood his ground: “Don’t you need probable cause?” The lieutenant shook his head and smiled: “No, we don’t.”

I remember at the Watford conference in 2013, we had a relationship with the Hertfordshire constabulary that was every bit as open and tolerant as Will Smith’s marriage. In fact, our presence wasn’t just tolerated, it was actively supported. They had a team of liaison officers. They even gave us portable toilets, for goodness sake. The same in Copenhagen last year: the cops allowed us right up to the edge of the hotel. They made a genuine (if not always successful) effort to communicate with us, and meet our needs.

Needs which are pretty simple: we just want to try and report on the conference as a news event. An event worthy of attention. It certainly gets enough attention from the police, military and intelligence services. All it needs now is a half a dozen toilet cubicles, a press hut and a laser printer. We can even recycle the G7 lanyards. We’re not fussy. We just want to be treated like journalists. It’s extremely simple, but really rather important.

And speaking of being simple but important, George Osborne will arrive at the Bilderberg summit tomorrow in his official capacity as chancellor of the exchequer. What Osborne perhaps doesn’t realise yet is that he’s about to land in the middle of an extremely serious Bilderberg-based news story.

One word, George.

HSBC.

The continual police checks are ruining my Bilderberg party
Charlie Skelton
Even a lecture on the convicted criminals due to arrive or a chat about ‘shameless’ HSBC didn’t deter Austria’s officers from yet another ID check
Thursday 11 June 2015 20.19 BST Last modified on Thursday 11 June 2015 21.01 BST
http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jun/11/continual-police-checks-ruining-bilderberg-party?CMP=share_btn_tw

I had three Austrian policemen in my hotel room last night. They stood there all grim faced with their fluorescent bibs, torches and sidearms. It was like the worst ever fancy dress party. I offered them a pilsner. They declined. They were too busy checking my ID that had been carefully checked 10 minutes prior at a police checkpoint. And carefully checked two minutes prior to that, at another police checkpoint.

This third check took so long, it was so late, and my patience was so thin, that eventually I took my shirt and trousers off in front of the officers. “I’m having a shower,” I explained, and went and had one. When I’d finished, I came out in my towel, thinking they might be gone. They weren’t. “Put your clothes on please and come to your car.” This party wasn’t getting any better.

Out at my car I couldn’t be bothered to get into the whole ‘probable cause’ thing so I flung open the doors and with as much good cheer as I could muster, said: “Help yourself”. They did. While one set of police searched my car with their torches, another lot clustered round me and asked me questions: “Where do you live? What are you doing here?” I’m a journalist and I live in a police state. What about you?

In my trouser pocket I found a “Medienhandbuch” from the G7, which I was given in my goodie bag when I was accredited there. By the light of a police searchlight, which was trained onto me like I was trying to escape Stalag 17, I read out passages to my guards to pass the time. “Experienced staff from the Federal Government will be happy to help you with your work …” An officer interrupted. “Your address please.” It was on my driving licence in his hand. This was getting silly.

A little while later, bored and a bit cold, I decided to point out to the officers that while they were treating a journalist like a criminal, there were actual criminals about to arrive at the hotel they were guarding. Convicted criminals. Such as disgraced former CIA boss, David Petraeus, who’s just been handed a $100,000 (£64,000) fine and two years’ probation for leaking classified information.

While they were treating a journalist like a criminal, there were actual criminals about to arrive at the hotel
Petraeus now works for the vulturous private equity firm KKR, run by Henry Kravis, who does arguably Bilderberg’s best impression of Gordon Gecko out of Wall Street. Which he cleverly combines with a pretty good impression of an actual gecko.

“What is a gecko?” asked one of my captors. “I’ll tell you what a gecko is if you tell me where the press accreditation centre is. What, there isn’t one? That’s a shame, because it would be really useful. You wouldn’t have to harass me in the middle of the night like this. I could just show you my press pass.” The policeman scribbled on his notebook. “Great, are you getting this down?” No. He was writing down the number on my driving licence. Again.

“Can I go now?” Another no. So I continued my list of criminals. I moved on to someone closer to home: René Benko, the Austrian real estate baron, who had a conviction for bribery upheld recently by the supreme court. Which didn’t stop him making the cut for this year’s conference. “You know Benko?” The cop nodded. It wasn’t easy to see in the glare of the searchlight, but he looked a little ashamed.

I reassured him that Benko’s crimes were in the very best traditions of Bilderberg. Don’t forget, the first chairman of the group, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, was the biggest fraudster of the lot; he was caught back in the 70s organising bribes from Lockheed and Northrop for the same arms contract. It was such a scandal that in 1976, Bilderberg had to skip a year out of sheer embarrassment.

Maybe they should think about giving this year a miss as well. I wouldn’t mind. I’m not having any fun here. “Do you mind turning off that searchlight? I won’t run away, I promise.” A stern head shook. The policemen were careful to keep officers on all sides of me. Like they’ve been trained to when faced with a slightly damp journalist wielding a G7 media handbook.

I decided to reward their vigilance with a chat about HSBC. The chairman of the troubled banking giant, Douglas Flint, is a regular attendee at Bilderberg, and he’s heading here again this year, along with a member of the bank’s board of directors, Rona Fairhead. Perhaps most tellingly, Flint is finding room in his Mercedes for the bank’s busiest employee: its chief legal officer, Stuart Levey.

The Guardian view on HSBC: a bank beyond shame
Editorial: It has multiple specific failings within a sector whose failure has cost the economy dear. And yet HSBC effectively used the eve of the Mansion House speech to threaten the chancellor
Read more
A Guardian editorial this week branded HSBC “a bank beyond shame” after it announced plans to cut 8,000 jobs in the UK, while at the same time threatening to shift its headquarters to Hong Kong. And having just been forced to pay £28m in fines to Swiss regulators investigating money-laundering claims. The big question, of course, is how will the chancellor of the exchequer, George Osborne, respond to all this? Easy – he’ll go along to a luxury Austrian hotel and hole up with three senior members of HSBC in private. For three days.

High up on this year’s conference agenda is “current economic issues”, and without a doubt, one of the biggest economic issues for Osborne at the moment is the future and finances of Europe’s largest bank. Luckily, the chancellor will have plenty of time at Bilderberg to chat all this through through with Flint, Levey and Fairhead. And the senior Swiss financial affairs official, Pierre Maudet, a member of the Geneva state council in charge of the department of security and the economy. It’s all so incredibly convenient.

Yet it doesn’t sit easily with Osborne’s intention, which he trumpeted five years ago, shortly after taking office, “to implement the most radical transparency agenda the country has ever seen”. What he’s doing this week in Bavaria is about as transparent as an alp.

I’d got about as far as the 8,000 job cuts when I was finally allowed to go free. An utterly ridiculous 35-minute ID check. I would have been more furious but I was starting to get into the swing of my lecture. The searchlight was lowered and they waved me off into the night. “But wait, I haven’t even got as far as Henry Kissinger being questioned for war crimes …”

“Goodnight, sir.”

Cartier boss with $7.5bn fortune says prospect of the poor rising up 'keeps him awake at night'

Says he is concerned about robots creating 'structural unemployment'
ADAM WITHNALL Author Biography Wednesday 10 June 2015

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/cartier-boss-with-75bn-fortune-says-prospect-poor-rising-up-keeps-him-awake-at-night-10307485.html

The multi-billionaire owner of luxury jewellery company Cartier has revealed his greatest fear – robots replacing workers and the poor rising up to bring down the rich.

Speaking at the Financial Times Business of Luxury Summit in Monaco (obviously), the fashion tycoon told his fellow elite that he can’t sleep at the thought of the social upheaval he thinks is imminent.

According to Bloomberg, Johann Rupert told the conference to bear in mind that when the poor rise up, the middle classes won’t want to buy luxury goods for fear of exposing their wealth.

He said he had been reading about changes in labour technology, as well as recent Oxfam figures suggesting the top 1 per cent of the global population now owns more wealth than the other 99 per cent.

“How is society going to cope with structural unemployment and the envy, hatred and the social warfare?” he said. “We are destroying the middle classes at this stage and it will affect us. It’s unfair. So that’s what keeps me awake at night.”

South African Rupert was estimated by Bloomberg to have amassed a fortune of around $7.5 billion from brands including Cartier, Chloe and Vacheron Constantin.

He returned to his chairman role at Compagnie Financiere Richemont in September 2014 after a one-year sabbatical which, according to Forbes, he spent reading and fly-fishing. And, it seems, contemplating a global social revolution.

Bilderberg 2015: Mystery Surrounds Shadowy Globalist Summit
Written by Alex Newman

Bilderberg 2015: Mystery Surrounds Shadowy Globalist Summit
A shadowy collection of globalists embedded throughout centers of power worldwide — political, military, banking, media, intelligence, business, academia, and more — wrapped up their annual Bilderberg summit on June 14 in Telfs-Buchen, Austria. The secrecy-obsessed confab has been receiving increased attention, relatively speaking, even from even the establishment press in recent years, following decades of complete silence. This year was no exception. But what humanity’s alleged public servants and self-appointed masters were discussing behind closed doors and armies of taxpayer-funded security officially remains a mystery — potentially in violation of numerous laws such as the U.S. Logan Act. Essentially, though, your future and the future of your nation were on the agenda.

The “key topics” on the official agenda released to the public included a number of vague but alarming subjects to anyone concerned about the inordinate power wielded by Bilderberg attendees. Among the topics listed: “artificial intelligence,” cybersecurity, chemical weapons, “current economic issues,” European “strategy,” globalization, Greece, Iran, the Middle East, NATO, Russia, terrorism, the United Kingdom, the United States, and even “U.S. elections.” In its 2015 “press release,” following similar releases issued in recent years amid escalating public outrage over the paranoid secrecy surrounding the annual summits, the Bilderberg leadership noted that “around 140” participants from 22 countries were planning to attend.


However, despite pretenses of increased transparency, virtually nothing is known publicly about what “the money-changers and the self-appointed masters of the universe,” as the U.K. Guardian’s Kevin McKenna described them, were plotting at their mega-luxury hotel (shown). “Only bankers, the CEOs of multinationals and western political leaders who have been on their payroll for a minimum of 10 years get to attend,” McKenna wrote in a sarcastic and humorous piece. Of course, key establishment media operatives are also invited to attend, but only under conditions of strict secrecy. Along with the “journalists,” editors, propagandists, and media magnates were prime ministers, foreign ministers, defense ministers, top globalist bureaucrats, a president, CEOs, royalty, and even some convicted globalist criminals (anti-U.S. sovereignty fanatic Gen. David Petraeus) for good measure.

At this year’s summit, a variety of media outlets sent reporters, including the U.K. Guardian, Infowars, American Free Press, some local outlets, and others. As has generally been the case, reporters and even locals were treated with disdain, hostility, and suspicion by the tax-funded security operatives guarding the globalists inside. More than 2,000 police, paid for with public funds, were reportedly on hand to guard the paranoid globalists against a handful of protesters, reporters, and local residents at the resort. The security was so on edge that a “COBRA” officer reportedly accidently fired an assault rifle at a police helicopter flying overhead.

The Guardian’s Charlie Skelton, who has humorously covered multiple Bilderberg confabs over the years, was harassed by police — complete with an armored personnel carrier and military helicopters overhead — amid repeated searches of his hotel, vehicle, papers, and more. Infowars reporters Rob Dew and Josh Owens were also visited by police as Bilderberg organizers exhibit growing levels of paranoia about the public, in addition to being “constantly followed and harassed” throughout the three-day confab. Even an 11-year-old boy playing in the woods was reportedly terrorized by the paranoid security operatives.

According to news reports, Bilderberg security teams even erected a jamming system to block communications in the vicinity of the InterAlpen hotel where the summit took place, reportedly to further hamper media coverage. “Apparently, Bilderberg is so afraid of media coverage, that police checkpoints miles away from the hotel are not enough, now they have resorted to installing expensive devices which shut down communications, presumably at taxpayer expense,” reported Infowars editor Paul Joseph Watson. A communications expert source also told Infowars that the system can also be used to monitor communications, Watson added in an update.

Despite numerous past statements by participants indicating that Bilderberg meetings and attendees help guide policy around the world, the official press release framed the gathering as a mere discussion forum. “Founded in 1954, the Bilderberg conference is an annual meeting designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America,” it claimed. “The conference is a forum for informal discussions about major issues facing the world. The meetings are held 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 of any other participant may be revealed.”

And indeed, the secrecy is tight, with journalists generally left to speculate about what their taxpayer-funded government officials are plotting behind closed doors with so-called “banksters,” media barons, Big Business crony capitalists, and other assorted globalists. Bilderberg’s press release, though, framed that all as a positive development, perfectly illustrating the chasm that exists between the thinking of summit attendees and the rest of humanity. “Thanks to the private nature of the conference, the participants are not bound by the conventions of their office or by pre-agreed positions,” the statement said. “As such, they can take time to listen, reflect and gather insights.”

In the official release, Bilderberg bigwigs also claimed, “There is no desired outcome, no minutes are taken and no report is written.” “Furthermore, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued,” it also said. However, those claims fly in the face of a wide array of public statements by numerous Bilderberg attendees. For example, in 2010, former NATO boss and two-time Bilderberg attendee Willy Claes said in a radio interview that reports of speeches given at the summit are, in fact, compiled. “The participants are then obviously considered to use this report in setting their policies in the environments in which they affect,” Claes added, which analysts said was essentially an admission that Bilderberg attendees are secretly plotting your future behind closed doors.

In other words, somebody is lying: Either the official Bilderberg press release, or the attendees. There are plenty of other statements that also contradict the official narrative. The year before Claes’ admission, then-Bilderberg chairman Etienne Davignon — a former European Union commissar and Belgian minister of state — told the online EUobserver that the summits “helped create” the controversial euro currency imposed on 17 formerly sovereign European nations. Much evidence also suggests that the summits played a major role in foisting the EU super-state on the peoples of Europe against their will — a process that continues despite the lack of public support.

More recently, despite protestations to the contrary, a Bilderberg attendee and the leader of the Socialist International-aligned Dutch Labor Party admitted on camera at last year’s summit that he was there in his official capacity as parliamentary leader. Asked if he was there in an informal capacity, he responded: “Well, I’m formal, because being a politician, you’re 24/7, so there’s no way of exiting my role.” The Bilderberg website claimed, by contrast, “Participants take part in the conference as individuals in their own right.” But the comments by the Dutch lawmaker and “sustainability” zealot Diederik Samsom suggested otherwise.

More than 15 years ago, far-left Bilderberg attendee Will Hutton — a former British newspaper editor, pro-EU extremist, and vehement opponent of American conservatism — also hinted at the influence of the gathering. “[Bilderberg] is one of the key meetings of the year,” he wrote in 1998. “The consensus established is the backdrop against which policy is made worldwide.” The admission could not get much clearer than that — despite claims in the official release about the confab, summit attendees themselves have regularly boasted that Bilderberg does, in fact, plot policy behind the backs of the very same people who pay their salaries and are expected to submit to their extremist “policy.”

Bilderberg also downplayed its extraordinary guest list. “Every year, between 120-150 political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia and the media are invited to take part in the conference,” it said. “About two thirds of the participants come from Europe and the rest from North America; approximately one third from politics and government and the rest from other fields.” While largely “accurate,” at least technically speaking, the truth is that, combined, attendees represent many of the world’s top powerbrokers and wield vast power over humanity. Among others at this year’s summit were top technology giant executives, former EU Commission boss and ex-Maoist revolutionary leader Jose Manuel Barroso, representatives of Big Oil, Big Banking, Big Media, Big Government, and more. For the semi-complete official guest list, which often omits key participants, visit the official Bilderberg site.

Of course, activists from across the political spectrum have long argued that Americans at the confab are feloniously violating the Logan Act. That federal law specifically bars any U.S. citizen without formal government permission from working with foreign officials on matters of policy. Passed under the John Adams administration in 1799, the Logan Act was amended as recently as the 1990s and, despite almost never being used, remains on the books today. And that, Bilderberg opponents say, means that Americans meeting with foreign officials at the secretive gathering should be investigated and eventually prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law if found to be in violation of it. As admitted by myriad attendees, practically the entire summit revolves around policy. Violators can be imprisoned for up to three years. Other nations also have laws about working on policy behind closed doors with special interests.

What sort of policy do the Bilderberg globalists have in mind? Well, examining their actions outside the secret meetings certainly provides a good clue. But in 2001, former British Chancellor of the Exchequer and Bilderberg bigwig Denis Healey gave a relatively concrete answer. He told the U.K. Guardian that it was a little “exaggerated, but not wholly unfair” to say that the outfit’s overall goal was essentially to impose a global government on humanity. “Those of us in Bilderberg felt we couldn't go on forever fighting one another for nothing and killing people and rendering millions homeless,” he claimed. “So we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing.” By “community,” globalists really mean government — after all, the European Union was the European “Community” before the full-blown super-state was openly announced.

As governments around the world influenced by Bilderberg attendees continue to wage war on the privacy rights — and other liberties — of everyday citizens, perhaps the time has come for everyday citizens, acting through their governments, to strip the privacy rights of Bilderberg attendees and their summit. After all, if they having nothing to hide, they should have no problem with losing their privacy — at least that is what they and their minions constantly tell the rest of humanity to justify the increasinlgy lawless and Orwellian surveillance of the public. The globalists in attendance should practice what they preach. If they continue to refuse, Americans and Europeans should use their remaining freedoms to ensure that transparency and legitimate government prevail.

Bilderberg looks to the future but is stuck in the past
Bilderberg has reached out to Silicon Valley; it’s even grappling with AI, but its media strategy and heavy-handed policing are from another era
http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jun/15/bilberberg-looks-to-the-future-but-is-stuck-in-the-past

Charlie Skelton Monday 15 June 2015 15.14 BSTLast modified on Monday 15 June 201515.51 BST

Disturbing news has emerged that a bullet was fired at a police helicopter during this year’s Bilderberg conference. Who would do such a thing? It turns out, the people who would do it are the police. The bullet was fired accidentally, admits a government spokesperson, by a member of Austria’s elite EKO Cobra counter-terrorism squad: the rifle went off when the officer was climbing into the helicopter.

Luckily, no one was hurt. One helicopter was slightly injured. That’s a relief, although it begs the question: what on earth is a crack anti-terror unit doing flying helicopter patrols around Telfs with live ammo and the safety off? Last time I looked we’re in the Tyrol, not Vietnam.

It seems appropriate that the single act of violence perpetrated towards police at Bilderberg 2015 was the direct result of their crazily heavy policing. In fact, the only injury the police received the entire time was when an officer sprained his lips from going “brrrm brrrm brrrm” while sitting in their redundant armoured personnel carrier and pretending to drive it.

The police won’t spend money on a much-needed press accreditation centre here, but they’re happy to splash out on an armour-plated snowplough. What a joke.

In the wake of the conference, at the bar of the Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol, I chanced upon a lingering delegate, the Portuguese media mogul Francisco Pinto Balsemão. In my terrible Portuguese I asked him whether he’d had a productive conference – uma conferência útil – and he replied in English: “We always do.” I managed one more question before being bustled away by hotel staff. “Do you think next year you might hold a press conference, like in the old days?” Senhor Balsemão smiled, and replied in Portuguese. “Talvez,” he said. Perhaps.

He seemed a charming man, but tired. He was lingering, I suspect, because this was his last Bilderberg as a member of the steering committee, and he was savouring the memories of power. In the runup to this year’s conference, the Portuguese press had reported how Balsemão had nominated his fellow countryman, José Manuel Barroso, the former European commission president, to replace him on the steering committee. And midway through the proceedings, the official website was changed to show the switch in names.

After the conference, Barroso seemed jubilant. His grin spoke volumes as he sprang from his car at the airport. He beamed and waved at the cameras, and I thought for a moment he was going to punch the air like at the end of The Breakfast Club. He looked like the cat that got the cream, then decided the cream was boring, and drank a bottle of champagne instead.

Rather less forthcoming than Barroso was the investment banker James Wolfensohn. When asked by reporter Dan Dicks whether he’d had a good conference, Wolfensohn said: “I wasn’t there … I didn’t attend.” Which is a pretty rubbish answer to give to the press when you’ve just stepped out of a V12 Mercedes with a massive “B” sticker in the front window.

Emerging from the next limo along, with a soft whir from its cyborg limbs, the remarkably lifelike Peter Thiel 3000 checked its scanners for threats, then made its way out towards its private jet.

The founder of Paypal and director of Facebook is currently pouring money into anti-ageing research, as part of his “immortality project”. He says: “I believe if we could enable people to live forever, we should do that. I think this is absolute.”

(Of course, he’s not the only Bilderberger with an eye on immortality. David Rockefeller, the godfather of the group, turned 100 during this year’s conference – it’s thought he joined the event via the huge screen they have set up in the main conference room. And Henry Kissinger is 92. He would have died years ago but Death is too scared to knock on his door.)

Back in 2006, Thiel was a co-founder, with Ray Kurzweil, of the Singularity Summit. Kurzweil is a famous futurologist, transhumanist and currently a director of engineering at Google.

By “singularity” is meant the shift towards smarter-than-human technology: the era of non-biological intelligence and, by extension, the merger of human and machine intelligence. Thiel’s ticket to immortality.

At Bilderberg this year, the executive chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt, brought along two of his top people to lead a session on AI. It might seem an odd fit for Bilderberg, but over the last few years the big shift within the group has been towards new media and new technology. Schmidt and Thiel both sit on the group’s steering committee, as does Craig Mundie of Microsoft and Alex Karp, the billionaire CEO of data analytics company Palantir, who was Thiel’s roommate at Stanford Law School.

Bilderberg has reached out to Silicon Valley; it’s grappling with AI. Looking forwards to the future, always with an eye to what’s valuable. If Bilderberg is to survive, and stay influential, it has to merge with this new technology. It knows it can’t be left behind.

And here’s where I worry for the future of Bilderberg. Inwardly, the group seems able to adapt to new technology, but what about the relationship between the group and the technology being used by the news media? It’s not the 1950s any more: you can’t just “have a quiet word” with half a dozen editors and keep a story out of the papers. You’ve got to deal with reporters like Dan Dicks and Luke Rudkowski, with their instant uploads and cameras hanging off every rucksack strap. You’ve got bloggers and citizen journalists, activists with Instagram accounts. News articles with comments sections and buttons to share them on social media. The news just doesn’t work the way it used to.

Thiel will tell you that, if no one else does.

Equally anachronistic is the heavy-handed policing: the checkpoints, the armoured snowploughs, the harassment, the helicopter patrols with itchy-fingered cops. The obstinate refusal to engage in proper press relations. It’s just a physical extension of Wolfensohn’s “I wasn’t there … I didn’t attend”. A denial of reality, a denial of change: and it’s no kind of long-term strategy.

It’s like George Osborne keeping his head down, dodging the cameras, and half-pretending he’s not been at Bilderberg, then eventually declaring the three days of meetings in his transparency data with the two words: “general discussion”.

More is required of Osborne, and more is required of the group in general. For its own sake as much as ours. So will the Bilderberg group take a deep breath, move forwards, and give us more in 2016?

In the words of Senhor Balsemão … talvez.

Not Yet Quite A Global Empire

Bilderberg: Started by a Nazi, still with the same agenda
By Michael Snyder, Blacklisted News
http://axisoflogic.com/artman/publish/Article_70720.shtml?

Blacklisted News - Sunday, Jun 21, 2015

When you want to discover what an organization is really all about, it is important to dig down to the roots. And when you uncover the roots of the Bilderberg Group, you find some very unsettling things. It turns out that the Bilderberg Group has had Nazi connections from the very beginning, and it continues to advance the agenda of the Nazis to this very day.

This year, the Bilderberg Group met from June 11th to June 14th at the Interalpen Hotel which is near the city of Telfs, Austria. This organization has so much power that even several days before the event police kept everyone (including reporters) 10 kilometers away from the hotel. If this is just a group of private citizens getting together to chat about world issues, why all the security? What is so special about this group of people that rates such extraordinary measures? And why are they so bound and determined to keep all of the rest of us away from them?

During World War II, the Nazi effort to unite all of Europe (and ultimately the rest of the world) through war failed miserably. When the war ended, those that believed in that dream decided that another approach would be necessary. Instead of war, a united Europe dominated by Germany would be achieved through international treaties and diplomacy. In 1957, the European Economic Community was established, and it began with just six countries: Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and West Germany. Since that time, it has expanded to 28 nations and has become known as “the European Union”.

The idea for the common currency that the European Union uses today, the euro, was conceived and developed by the Bilderberg Group. This organization has always been at the forefront of European unity, but most people have no idea where it came from.

Well, the truth is that the Bilderberg Group first met in 1954, and one of the key founders of the group was Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. Not only was he a founder, Prince Bernhard actually served as the organization’s chairman until 1976. So why is this important? Most people do not realize this, but Prince Bernhard actually belonged to the Nazi Party at one time. The following is an excerpt from an article that appeared in the Telegraph…
“Bernhard, a secret history” has revealed that the prince was a member of the German Nazi party until 1934, three years before he married Princess Juliana, the future queen of the Netherlands.

Annejet van der Zijl, a Dutch historian, has found membership documents in Berlin’s Humboldt University that prove Prince Bernhard, who studied there, had joined Deutsche Studentenschaft, a National Socialist student fraternity, as well as the Nazi NSDAP and its paramilitary wing, the Sturmabteilung.

He left all the groups on leaving university in December 1934, when he went to work for the German chemical giant, IG Farben.

And Prince Bernhard’s association with IG Farben also links him to the Nazis. The following comes from a book entitled “The Nazi Hydra In America” by Glen Yeadon…
“The Bilderberg group, founded by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, held its first meeting in 1954. The prince, a former officer in the SS, had worked in IG Farben’s notorious NW7 group, which served as spies for the Third Reich. Bernhard belonged to the Dutch branch of the Knights Templar. In 1954, he was appointed to govern the Dutch order. John Foster Dulles was one of the most helpful Americans in setting up the Bilderberg group. Incidentally, in 1954 Dulles testified in favor of a bill designed to return vested enemy assets, such as GAF, to their previous owners.”

As the quote above just pointed out, John Foster Dulles was instrumental in helping the Bilderberg Group get established. His brother, Allen Dulles, was responsible for Operation Paperclip which enabled large numbers of Nazi scientists (among others) to come into the United States and start working for the U.S. government in various capacities. Allen Dulles was so passionate about this program that it continued even when two presidents tried to shut it down…

Dulles’ CIA Operation Paperclip assimilated Nazi scientists into the American establishment by obscuring their histories and preventing efforts to bring their true stories to light. The project was led by officers in the United States Army. Although the program officially ended in September 1947, those officers and others carried out a conspiracy until the mid-1950s that bypassed both law and presidential directive to keep Operation Paperclip going. Neither Presidents Truman nor Eisenhower were informed that their instructions were ignored.

The “godfather” of the Bilderberg Group is a former U.S. Secretary of State named Henry Kissinger. He has attended the gathering almost every single year, and he will be there once again in 2015. This is a man that is so committed to globalization that he even wrote a book entitled “World Order“. But what hardly anyone knows is that he actually discussed overthrowing the West German government with a group of “disgruntled Nazis” back in the 1970…

A German academic has unearthed evidence showing former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger once discussed a coup with disgruntled Nazis to overthrow the West German government in the 1970s.

Kissinger and Richard Nixon were aggrieved at the left-leaning government of the day’s burgeoning friendship with the hardline East German government.

Kissinger became the contact man for a secret spy network made up of old Nazis and elite aristocrats aimed at torpedoing the plans formulated by Chancellor Willy Brandt.

The guys behind this movement have been at it for a very long time.

And they are still advancing the values and principles at the heart of the Nazi movement to this very day. The following are just a few examples of this…
Just like the Nazis, they advocate for highly centralized national governments that are heavily socialized.
Just like the Nazis, they are deeply committed to globalization. The Nazis sought to establish their empire through war, while these guys seek to do it through diplomacy and negotiation.
Just like the Nazis, they believe in strict gun control for the general population, centralized government-controlled education and the removal of organized religion (especially Christianity) from public life.
Just like the Nazis, they believe that they are the elite of the world, they are anti-Israel, and they believe in using military power to advance their cause when necessary.
And just like the Nazis, they are deeply committed to eugenics and population control. These days, they use language that is more “politically correct”, but most of them are absolutely convinced that the number one problem in our world is overpopulation.
Of course nobody associated with the Bilderberg Group would ever use the word “Nazi” to describe themselves. That term has become so associated with evil that nobody wants anything to do with it. But the values and the principles of the Nazis endure in organizations such as the Bilderberg Group.

The ultimate goal, of course, is a one world government that dominates the entire planet.

Let us hope and pray that they are never able to achieve that.
