Bilderberg | An Unelected, Unaccountable Corporatist Dictatorship

Bilderberg | An Unelected, Unaccountable Corporatist Dictatorship

In the summer of 1954, more than one hundred international bankers and industrialists, members of the surviving royal families of Europe, ambitious politicians, civil servants, academics and media barons, convened at the Bilderberg Hotel in Oosterbeek, Holland.

This was the very first meeting of the Bilderberg Group, which meets every summer in a different European or North American five star location, usually with golfing facilities.

The meetings have always been shrouded in secrecy, with every participant, including those from the media, bound by a strict code of silence for extremely pragmatic reasons.

“If the Bilderberg Group is not a conspiracy of some sort, it is conducted in such a way as to give a remarkably good imitation of one.”

C. Gordon Tether, London’s Financial Times, 1975.

Following an argument about censorship, Financial Times journalist, C. Gordon Tether, was fired one year after the publication of the above comment, by his editor, Max Henry ‘Freddy’ Fisher, who was also a member of another Bilderberg tentacle, the Trilateral Commission.

According to Aldon Hatch’s authorised biography of one of the Bilderberg founders, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, the Dutch prince said that when a person attends Bilderberg he is:

“…magically stripped of his office… When these representatives of the Western establishment leave a Bilderberg meeting they carry the Group’s consensus with them. The high-powered Bilderberg debates are intended to build unity by resolving differences, and therefore certainly have a significant influence on attendees.”

Prince Bernhard

The first meeting was organised by co-founder of the Council of Europe and Honorary Secretary General of the European Movement, Josef Retinger, with the executive participation of his friend, Prince Bernhard, the former card-carrying Nazi S.S. Officer.

Prince Bernhard claimed for more than fifty years that his Nazi Party membership was imposed upon him while living in Hitler’s Berlin during the 1930’s.

This claim was never substantiated with compelling evidence, but the Dutch royal family continues to enjoy its privileged position as permanent members of the Bilderberg steering committee.

Other permanent Bilderberg members include the Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Schiff and Warburg banking dynasties, members of the European aristocracy, and a former US Secretary of State who was accused of war crimes on three continents in Christopher Hitchens’ coruscating book, THE TRIAL OF HENRY KISSINGER (2001).

Bilderberg aimed from the beginning to succeed where their ill-fated League of Nations venture had failed: to establish totalitarian World Government, the end of the sovereign nation state, dramatic human population reduction and a single global currency. The keys to achieving these goals were control of the planet’s energy resources, economies, science, media, education, politicians, and of course, the masses.

The theory was, if they could place their people anywhere, they could control everything and everyone, for the alleged benefit of ‘the greater good’, more accurately known as the Darwinian preservation of the so-called favoured races and the phasing out of all inferior classes of Man.

Rothschild funded United Nations was always intended as a forerunner for World Government, in the aftermath of the failure of the League of Nations.

Prince Bernhard reputedly believed that another Great Depression could be avoided if a responsible, intellectual elite could manage geopolitical events from behind the scenes, with their power and influence obscured by the necessary public relations exercise. As Hatton wrote in THE RAPE OF THE CONSTITUTION, the purpose of the meetings was to bring together:

“…an Aristocracy of Purpose between Europe and the United States. The NATO alliance was their crucial base of operation, and subversion, because it afforded them the backdrop for their plans of ‘perpetual war’, or at least the ‘nuclear blackmail’ policy.”

Bilderberg Hall of Fame

It’s all-too-easy to reel off dozens of names of the most successful and powerful individuals who have attended a Bilderberg conference the moment before their careers were propelled into hyper-space, but there are a few which immediately take the eye when scanning the verified guest lists at

In 1973 an ambitious, peanut-farming Senator from Georgia announced that he was running for the U.S. Presidency. Two years later, in the wake of Watergate and the end of the Vietnam War, Jimmy Carter (pictured below with Barrack Obama’s political mentor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, founding director of the Trilateral Commission) was invited to his first Bilderberg Conference.

The Trilateralists

The following year Carter took residence in the White House, making Brzezinski his National Security adviser and filling key positions in his government with mostly Trilateral Commission members.

Indeed, according to Daniel Estulin in THE TRUE STORY OF THE BILDERBERG GROUP, an astounding 291 members of the Carter administration were members of either the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), or the Trilateral Commission. As U.S. News and World Report noted at the time:

“The Trilateralists have taken charge of foreign policy-making in the Carter administration, and already the immense power they wield is sparking some controversy. Active or former members of the Trilateral Commission now head every key agency involved in mapping U.S. strategy for dealing with the rest of the World.”

The outspoken Republican Senator and failed presidential candidate, Barry Goldwater, wrote in his book, WITH NO APOLOGIES, that Jimmy Carter was maneuvered into the White House by David Rockefeller and Brzezinski:

“…they mobilised the money power of the Wall Street bankers, the intellectual influence of the academic community – which is subject to the wealth of the great tax-free foundations – and the media controllers represented in the membership of the CFR and the Trilateral.”

Thatcher’s Induction

Also at the 1975 Bilderberg conference was an ambitious British politician who had her eye firmly set on becoming the first female Prime Minister of Great Britain.

By all accounts it took her two conferences to win over the predominantly middle-aged men in expensive suits, but Henry Kissinger openly admitted that he was “utterly charmed” the first time he saw her address the conference.

Bilderberg | An Unelected, Unaccountable Corporatist Dictatorship

In May 1979, Mrs Thatcher achieved her ambition and set about waging war against Argentina, the unions, working class communities and regulation of trade.

According to several Bilderberg insiders, she was forced out of office by the group when she refused to relinquish British sovereignty and the pound, as was her sworn obligation under English constitutional law, but not before preventing Argentina from selling nuclear power to Mexico and initiating the privatisation of Britain’s public utilities.

Bush & Clinton

“The interests behind the Bush Administration, such as the CFR, The Trilateral Commission – founded by Brzezinski for David Rockefeller – and the Bilderberger Group, have prepared for and are now moving to implement open world dictatorship within the next five years. They are not fighting against terrorists. They are fighting against citizens.”

Dr. Johannes B. Koeppl PhD, former adviser to NATO Secretary General, Manfred Werner, 1998.

In early 1991, failed presidential candidate Bill Clinton was still embroiled in the Whitewater Scandal while Governor of Arkansas, when he was invited to Bilderberg by his lawyer and close friend, Lazard Freres’ Vernon Jordan, a life member of the CFR, Bilderberg and a board member of American Express and Xerox. The following year Clinton became President at the second attempt.

While unsubstantiated rumours still circulate about Clinton’s secret career in the CIA during the late 1960’s, allegedly under the command of George H.W. Bush, America’s most charismatic President since JFK (until Obama) has publicly admitted that his first shot at the Oval Office was impeded by lack of financial muscle. All of that changed after his formal introduction to the Bilderberg Group.

Blair & Brown

The much less charismatic Tony Blair attended his first Bilderberg Conference in 1993, well before he was even elected leader of the Labour Party. Gordon Brown was also invited to the 1993 conference, but he politely declined the invitation, having already attended in 1991 with the late Labour leader, John Smith.

Brown remains resolutely silent on his Bilderberg attendances almost seventeen years after his first conference, although his refusal to tax the super-rich at the expense of those with the lowest incomes and his selling off of Britain’s gold at a fire-sale price are clear indications where his true allegiance lies.

Blair & the Carlyle Group

In November 2004, allegations were published by the Observer newspaper claiming that Bilderberg members, British American Tobacco, marked out the fiercely ambitious Blair in 1991, as a politician who would be friendly to the tobacco industry, if elected as Prime Minister.

When the information was requested, Mr Blair initially refused to compromise the business interests of his dinner guests at Chequers, until he was forced to do so by his own party’s Freedom of Information Act, which Parliament has since neutered. But not before it was confirmed that BAT did dine with the Prime Minister after he was elected, thereby establishing prima facie evidence of at least one conflict of interests.

Then came the Observer revelation in 2005 of rumours in the City of London, that Blair would, like John Major before him, become an international ambassador for the Carlyle Group, a Bilderberg group of defence contractors that has reaped vast profits from the conflicts sanctioned by Blair’s government, under Elizabeth Windsor’s authorisation.

The article, along with another printed by the Mirror, has been removed from the internet archives.

Blair and the Carlyle Group

Blair & J.P. Morgan

Blair has been tight-lipped about the appointment ever since, although his role as Middle East Peace Envoy, his sudden conversion to Catholicism after leaving office and his possible election as E.U. President seem all the more sinister because of it. If Blair has reconsidered his position, or declined the Carlyle Group’s offer, the knowledge is not yet in the public domain.

His appointment by J.P Morgan in 2008 on a part-time basis, allowing for his equally lucrative appearances on the international lecture circuit and his role as Professor of Religion at Yale University, does not exclude the possibility that he is also be on the Carlyle Group payroll.

Although the obvious links between the two companies may have provided Blair with a more publicly palatable alternative.

Brown’s Calamities

Gordon Brown revealed himself as incapable of dominating the political stage very early in his stint as Prime Minister, presiding over several reputation damaging calamities; the false-start general election; the collapse of Northern Rock; the credit-crunch caused by the sub-prime mortgage fraud, which was enabled while he was Chancellor of the Exchequer; and multiple government departments losing the personal information of millions of UK citizens.

Perhaps Brown was seen from the beginning as the man to be blamed for Nu-Labour’s deliberate mistakes, before passing the baton to the next generation of Bilderbergers.

Bilderberg Endgame: World Government

Some who have attended Bilderberg conferences, including Observer journalist, Will Hutton, have acknowledged the group’s power and influence, despite the mainstream media blackout.

This has been somewhat thwarted this century by the rise of the independent media on the internet, where Bilderberg insiders consistently leak valuable information, as well as disinformation and predictable denials about the power and influence of the group.

Significantly, former US Ambassador to West Germany, George McGhee, has publicly admitted that the Treaty of Rome, the catalyst for the formation of the Common Market and the European Union, was developed at Bilderberg meetings, as were the plans for the North American, Asian and African Unions, a single currency and World Government.

Bilderberg | An Unelected, Unaccountable Corporatist Dictatorship

“We shall have World Government whether or not you like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.”

James Warburg, statement made before the United States Senate on Feb 7th 1950.

Conquest or Consent

Formed by Brzezinski for David Rockefeller in 1973, the Trilateral Commission is another arm of this international corporate banking cabal, as is the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), which has been synonymous with both U.S. foreign policy and public relations since its formation in 1921.

It is also widely known as the American branch of the Rothschild-controlled Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA).

Without a hint of hyperbole, nobody in western politics gets mainstream media attention without having the approval of one of these organisations. Similarly, no international corporation can operate successfully without the cooperation of Bilderberg and its international banking and trade cartels.

All-powerful influence at this level cannot be bought cheaply and has taken centuries to acquire. But it has been acquired in secret without public consent, in much the same way our birthrights have been obscured from us by stealth.

The True Story of Bilberberg

“…a cesspool of duplicity and lies and double-speak and innuendo and blackmail and bribery. A surreal world of double and triple agents, of changing loyalties, of professional psychotic assassins, brainwashed black-ops agents, soldiers of fortune and mercenaries, whose primary sources of income are the most despicable government-run subversive missions – the kind that can never be exposed.”

Daniel Estulin, The True Story of Bilderberg, 2007.

Daniel Estulin has been investigating Bilderberg for fifteen years. The son of a Russian dissident, Daniel and his family were expelled from the Soviet Union in 1980. After becoming a Canadian citizen, he moved to Madrid fifteen years ago, when he began covering Bilderberg.

Estulin’s grandfather was a KGB counter-intelligence agent during the Cold War, which has provided him with valuable connections within the Secret Intelligence Services. Estulin is confident of the integrity of his sources, who insist that they are only leaking him information because they are patriots, love their countries and are terrified of the plans of the Bilderbergers.

Estulin, who has written the best-selling book, THE TRUE STORY OF THE BILDERBERG GROUP, is certain that the Bilderbergers are, and always have been, in the process of creating the New World Order, as proclaimed by George H.W. Bush in more than one speech during his time in the White House and echoed by Gordon Brown almost every time he made a speech to an international audience as Prime Minister.

Manufactured Chaos & Democide

Estulin is certain that Bilderberg will stop at nothing to crush any nation that dares to become energy self-sufficient, that Peak Oil and Climate Change are monsters created to enable a global tax on energy, that oil will reach US$200 a barrel and that another Great Depression will ensue, leaving many millions of people homeless, starving, disease-ridden or dead.

As far back as 1974, while Secretary of State Kissinger concluded in a report on the world’s alleged population problem that it should ideally be reduced by 3 billion, meaning the death of 100 million Americans by 2050.

According to the National Centre for Health Statistics, around 2.4 million Americans died during 2005. 1.6 million of those people died from preventable causes.

However, the U.S. population increase in 2005 was 1.8 million people, making a net gain of 200,000 people. Nevertheless, this issue remains high on the Bilderberg agenda more than four decades after Kissinger’s report.

“To put it in a terminology that harkens back to the more brutal age of ancient empires, the three grand imperatives of imperial Geo-strategy are to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals, to keep tributaries pliant and protected, and to keep the barbarians from coming together.”

Founding director of the Trilateral Commission and Bilderberger, Zbignew Brzezinski, The Grand Chessboard (1997).

David Rockefeller is now dead, with other prominent luminaries such as Lord Rothschild and Henry Kissinger not that far behind him.

The Bilderberg cabal are therefore growing impatient for their endgame to be realised, since they are perceptive enough to understand that they cannot sustain their illusion of control without the general compliance of the masses. Without that, every empire has crumbled into dust.

“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents, such as my encounter with Castro, to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists, and of conspiring with others around the World to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

David Rockefeller, Memoirs (Random House, 2002).
