BILDERBERG: What’s The Big Deal?

At this year’s Bilderberg meeting, over 130 top executives from banks, financial firms, multinational corporations, media organisations and governments are conferring behind closed doors. Actually this happens every year, and the mainstream media barely gives it a glance – publicly anyway.

As 21WIRE reported this week in an article by Mark Anderson, this year’s attendees from the government sector include not only Trump’s National Security Advisor H R McMaster, but also the prominent US Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC). Other notable names include:

  • Wilbur Ross, US Secretary of Commerce
  • Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF)
  • Henry Kissinger (photo, above), former US Secretary of State and National Security Advisor
  • George Osborne, former UK Chancellor of the Exchequer, now editor of the Evening Standard
  • Jens Stoltenberg, NATO’s Secretary General
  • John Brennan, former CIA Director, now with Kissinger Associates
  • David Petraeus, former CIA Director, now with KKR
  • José Manuel Barroso, former President of the European Commission, now Chairman of Goldman Sachs International
  • Robert Rubin, former US Treasury Secretary, now Co-Chair of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)

Other public sector representatives include current sitting ministers from Canada, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands and Denmark, as well as the chiefs of several central banks, the Chinese Ambassador to the US, and others.

From the private sector there are dozens of CEOs and chairmen from well known companies such as Google, The Carlyle Group, Bayer, Fiat Chrysler, Airbus, Ryanair and AT&T.

From the financial sector there are representatives from Deutsche Bank, Santander, Goldman Sachs, Allianz, AXA, ING, Lazard, KKR and others.

From the media sector, the Wall Street Journal, Financial TimesEvening Standard and The Economist are all represented.

But the press will not report on the proceedings inside the meeting, and the Bilderberg Group’s cherished secrecy will remain intact.

To some people this may not seem like a major problem. But to those who understand the Bilderberg Group – and are willing to be honest about it – it most assuredly is. James Corbett of The Corbett Report encapsulated the problem very nicely in a piece he did during a prior meeting of the Bilderberg Group.

The Corbett Report

Now I know what you’re thinking: “Why we must oppose the Bilderberg Group? Really? Do we need an essay on this?” If you’re reading this, you’re probably one of the ones who don’t even have to be told what the Bilderberg group is, much less why it must be opposed. And if you do consider yourself in that group, then I salute you. You are clearly one of the more tuned-in members of the public, one who has dared look beyond the veil of normality at the rotten core of corruption at the heart of our political and economic world.

But I dare say that for every one of us who are aware of the Bilderberg group and its significance, there are many thousands more who have still never even heard of it. These are the unfortunate victims of propaganda and brainwashing, the 24/7 exhortations to “go home, there’s nothing to see here.” We all know people like this; the ones who don’t know what the Bilderburger with Cheese Group is and don’t want to know. After all, why should they care?

All else aside, then, there are at least two reasons why we should have a decent answer to the question of “Why we must oppose the Bilderberg Group.” Firstly, it’s so that we have a clear, well-reasoned, cogent reply to those who ask us that question in all sincerity. Even the most propagandized can be coaxed out of their reality inversion bubble with a well-reasoned argument, after all. It worked on you at some point, didn’t it? And secondly, even those of us who are aware that the Bilderberg group is something to be opposed should have a clear idea of why it must be opposed, because the answer to that question will help us to answer the second and more important question, “How should we oppose the Bilderberg group?”

So, then, to the question itself. If we are attempting to communicate with those who cover their ears and hum loudly at the first sign of something that might be construed as “conspiracy theory,” maybe we should start with something they can relate to: their political overlords! We can point them to candidate Obama on the 2008 campaign trail, for example, promising that his government will be one of the most transparent in history. After all, as Obama himself noted: “It’s no coincidence that one of the most secretive administrations in our history has favoured special interests and pursued policies that could not stand up to the sunlight.” And Hillary Clinton, delivering remarks at the Transparency International-USA’s Annual Integrity Award Dinner: “Before government officials spoke as openly and loudly about these issues, Transparency International was already bringing corruption out of the shadows, sunlight being the best disinfectant.” Or then-newly elected British Prime Minister David Cameron: “It is our ambition to be one of the most transparent governments in the world, open about what we do and, crucially, about what we spend.”

Yes! Of course! Transparency! Obama, Clinton, Cameron; they are all so dedicated to the cause of transparency, so concerned about the dangerous collusion of business, finance, media and government, that the very thought of the Bilderberg Group must be repugnant to them, right? It must so rankle them to learn that politicians are meeting behind closed doors with corporate lobbyists and–

Wait…What’s that? They’ve all attended Bilderberg? Oh, never mind then.
