Bilderberg Conference Convenes
by Stephen Lendman
On June 5, the London Evening Standard headlined "No minutes, no press conferences - just the world's power brokers chewing the fat on the issues of the day. It's the Bilderberg conference - and it's coming to a suburb near you."
On June 6, it convened. It continues through June 9. It's a rite of spring. A previous article said British political economist Will Hutton calls attendees the "high priests of globalization."
Powerful movers and shakers have their own agenda. They're up to no good. They meet annually face-to-face. They conspire, collude and collaborate against populist interests. Their's alone matter.
According to Bilderberg Meetings.org:
"Founded in 1954, Bilderberg is an annual conference designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America."
"Every year, between 120 -150 political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia and the media are invited to take part in the conference."
"About two thirds of the participants come from Europe and the rest from North America; one third from politics and government and the rest from other fields."
"The conference is a forum for informal, off-the-record discussions about megatrends and the major issues facing the world."
"Thanks to the private nature of the conference, the participants are not bound by the conventions of office or by pre-agreed positions."
"As such, they can 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."
"The 61st Bilderberg meeting will take place at the beginning of June 2013 in the UK."
Earlier articles discussed their agenda. Their ideal world isn't fit to live in. Democracy is verboten. They want one world government. They want unchallenged global dominance.
Their wish list includes universal rules they set, centralized global control, perpetual crises and wars, NATO operating worldwide, abolishing the middle class, establishing ruler-serf societies, and having unchallenged wealth and power in their hands.
They want what they say goes enforced as policy. Obedient serfs can expect subsistence crumbs at best. Non-believers will be eliminated. New world order priorities alone matter.
Bilderberg's Steering Committee includes a dozen prominent Americans. David Rockefeller's called an Advisory Group member.
It's uncertain if he's attending. A published list excludes his name. He's called the master spider for good reason. He's been dominant for decades. On June 12, he turns 98. He's fading. Who'll replace him isn't clear.
In her book "Web of Debt," Ellen Brown quoted economist/geopolitical analyst Hans Schicht saying:
"What has been good for Rockefeller, has been a curse for the United States. Its citizens, government and country indebted to the hilt, enslaved to his banks."
"The country's industrial force lost to overseas in consequence of strong dollar policies (pursued for bankers not the country."
Rockefeller's no longer the force he once was. "(S)ixty years of dollar imperialism (is ending). The day of financial reckoning is not far off any longer."
"With Rockefeller's strong hand losing its grip and the old established order fading, the world has entered a most dangerous transition period, where anything could happen."
Bilderberg rogues plan a world unfit to live in. They may end up destroying it in the process. It's hard imagining a more malevolent force. US members reflect the worst of what it stands for. More on some prominent ones attending below.
They're meeting at Britain's five-star Grove Hotel. It's 18 miles from London. It's ideal for secluded meetings. While ongoing, police state security's enforced.
Operations go on round-the-clock. Area residents have to show police passports, drivers licenses, or other accepted photo IDs to go home, to work, or attend to other personal business.
Civil liberties are suspended. De facto martial law's in force. What Bilderberg rogues want they get. They want the worst of all possible worlds spread globally.
Prominent American attendees in alphabetical order include:
He's a former Lehman Brothers partner. He left before its dissolution. Perhaps he helped push it over the edge. He was Clinton's Deputy Treasury Secretary. He's a Bilderberg Steering Committee member.
He's founder and executive chairman of Evercore Partners. It's a prominent predatory investment banking advisory firm. It specializes in mergers, acquisition, divestitures, restructurings, financings and other strategic transactions.
It operates the old-fashioned way. It recommends leveraged buyouts, asset-stripping targeted companies, and leaving thousands of employees high and dry on their own.
He's Amazon's founder and CEO. It's the world's largest online retailer. Earlier he worked on Wall Street and for a New York-based hedge fund.
In March 2013, Forbes estimated his net worth at .2 billion.
He's Harvard University Professor of Economics. From 1982 - 1984, he was Reagan's Council of Economic Advisors chairman and chief economic advisor. He's National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) president emeritus. It's an elitist organization.
Many of its members have been conservative Nobel economics laureates. Others served as White House chairmen of the Council of Economic Advisors.
It's well known for announcing when recessions begin and end. It does so inaccurately. It ignores an ongoing protracted Main Street Depression.
In 2006, Feldstein was on Bush's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. In 2009, he served Obama in a likewise capacity.
His other affiliations include the Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, and American Enterprise Group among others. He been a board member of several major corporations.
A previous article discussed his legacy of shame. His rap sheet includes various Treasury posts, IMF Policy Development and Review director, New York Fed president, vice chairman of the Fed's Open Market Committee (FOMC), and Obama's Treasury Secretary.
He partnered with former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and Fed chairman Ben Bernanke. They planned the grandest of grand thefts. They implemented banker bailouts.
They looted the federal treasury. They stuck taxpayers with the bill. They debased the currency. They transformed America into an unprecedented money making racket.
He and other Bilderberg rogues want spread globally what they did to America. They conspired with their EU partners doing the same thing to Western Europe.
They bear full responsibility for today's global economic crisis. They planned it for greater wealth and power control.
He's Washington Post Company chairman and CEO. His holdings include TV stations, municipal cable systems, and Kaplan, Inc. It provides higher education testing, training, and professional courses. It's ethically and legally challenged.
It specializes in ripping off students. It does so for profit. It features scams and other fraudulent schemes. It sacrifices education for bottom line priorities.
It's faced numerous lawsuits. In 2007, a class-action one on overcharging was settled. It shows no signs of changing its ways. Doing business the old fashioned way matters most.
Robert D. Kaplan
His articles are featured in numerous scoundrel media publications. Defense Secretary Robert Gates appointed him to the Defense Policy Board. Bill Clinton and George W. Bush reportedly sought his counsel.
In 2011, Foreign Policy magazine called him one of the world's "top global thinkers." He's Stratfor Global Intelligence chief geopolitical analyst. According to Professor Daniel Drezner:
"What Kaplan and George Friedman share is a sense of geographical determinism that allows them to claim predictive powers."
They and likeminded ideologues advance amoral national interest priorities. Resource control weighs heavily.
Professor Robert Farley added:
"Kaplan's talent is to tell the powerful what they want to hear with the veneer of both theoretical insight and empirical knowledge, while possessing neither."
His book "Balkan Ghosts" allegedly influenced Clinton's thinking on Serbia, Bosnia and Kosovo. Its dark side analysis characterized Yugoslav people as primitive and violent.
He calls Iran a potential regional hegemon. He says "Iranians do respond to pressure, but it has to be extreme."
At an earlier Davos World Economic Forum meeting, Stratfor's George Friedman addressed Iran saying, "There is a solution to (weapons) proliferation, and this is bombing them." Perhaps Kaplan's view is likeminded.
Previous articles discussed him. He was an early architect of new world order harshness.
He's a notorious war criminal. His rap sheet includes three to four million Southeast Asian war deaths.
He was instrumental in overthrowing Chile's democratic government. Augusto Pinochet replaced Salvador Allende. Reign of terror arrests, killings, torture and neoliberal harshness followed.
He backed Suharto
