Bilderberg group

Jump to: navigation, search

The Bilderberg group is a globalist international organization made up of liberal elites from the political, financial, academic and military realms who come together annually to discuss world affairs. The name was chosen from the Dutch hotel where it held its first meeting in 1954.[1] The group meets once a year by annual invitation-only conference and includes 150 influential figures from North America and Western Europe. No other events are held and no policy statements are issued. Bilderberg meetings are closed to the press, participants are asked not to publicly discuss the proceedings and the attendee list is only occasionally released.

Conservative critics, with good reason, believe the Bilderberg group is working to undermine – and eventually completely do away with – national sovereignty and establish a globalist utopia and one-world government that subverts the will of the working class and other regular Americans. U.S. Representative Ron Paul feared the group’s influence. "And my biggest concern is what they preach: Keynesian economics and interventionism and world planning," and "They do believe in a powerful centralized government."

Activities

According to the Bilderberg group's website, the group invites between 120 and 150 leaders from various fields in Europe and America.[2] One-third of the attendees must be from North America and the other two-thirds from Europe.[2] The group is extremely secretive, not allowing attendees to talk openly about the meetings, particularly the speakers or their positions,[3] and the agenda is not detailed and no votes, resolutions, or policy statements are made.[2][3][4]

Despite the importance of the meetings, the mainstream media generally ignores reporting on them.[5]

Driver of global policy

Despite the Bilderberg group's insistence that it exists only for discussion, the group's activities and statements by attendees strongly indicate that the group exists to direct global policies in a globalist direction.[6][7] For example, Willy Claes, a former Secretary General of NATO who attended Bilderberg meetings, stated that "the participants are then obviously considered to use this report in setting their policies in the environments in which they affect."[6][7] Etienne Davignon, a European Commissioner, stated that the Bilderberg meetings "helped create" the common Euro currency.[6] Dutch parliamentary leader Diederik Samsom admitted that Bilderberg attendees are at the meetings in their official governmental capacities, rather than as private citizens.[8] According to Will Hutton, "the consensus established [at the meetings] is the backdrop against which policy is made worldwide."[6]

Strong evidence also exists indicating that the Bilderberg group plays a strong role in choosing world leaders. Bill Clinton, who attended the meetings in 1991 as an obscure governor of Arkansas, was elected U.S. president one year later.[6] Tony Blair is just one of the several prime ministers of the United Kingdom who became prime minister shortly after attending the meeting.[6] Herman Van Rompuy of Belgium, who was not well known throughout the EU, became the President of the European Council – proclaiming the advancement of "global governance" – in 2009 very shortly after attending a Bilderberg meeting.[6] The Bilderberg group supported Rompuy's candidacy and held a dinner for that purpose.[9]

Bilderberg attendees have connections to essentially every major political, corporate, and media organization in the world, illustrating the massive effect the organization is, at least, potentially able to assert on world affairs.[7][10]

It has been suggested that due to the influence of the Bilderberg meetings, American attendees are violating the Logan Act by attending and discussing in the meetings.[11]

Advancement of globalism and one-world government

According to statements by Bilderberg attendees, the group exists to promote globalist ideals and to undermine national sovereignty. Denis Healey, the British chancellor of the exchequer, stated that "to say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair", and that "we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing."[3][6] The Bilderberg group's website itself states that "in the context of a globalised world, it is hard to think of any issue in either Europe or North America that could be tackled unilaterally."[12][13]

According to the Bilderberg group's official 2017 press release, U.S. President Donald Trump's "Progress Report" was at the top of the agenda, leading conservative and Christian commentators to speculate that the meeting would try to undermine Trump's conservative and nationalist agenda.[12]

Bilderberg group attendees also tend to be members of the Council on Foreign Relations, another globalist organization.[12]
