Every year, the world's richest and most powerful business executives, bankers, media heads and politicians sit down in some luxurious and heavily guarded venue, and discuss how to steer the global economy in a way that maximizes profits for all involved, while perpetuating a status quo that has been highly beneficial for a select few, even if it means the ongoing destruction of the middle and working classes and the creation of a servile, uneducated, ill informed underclass, the 'proleteriat' of Karl Marx' writing.. We are talking, of course, about the annual, and always secretive, Bilderberg meeting.
And, as the Guardian notes, "you know Bilderberg’s about to begin when you start seeing the guns."It is quite ironic that a left wing publication like the Guardian, which is naturally dead against corporate capitalism, bankers, Soros and all that shite, actually supports all the Bilderberg Group initiatives aimed at creating chaose and uncertainty in the developed world (e.g. mass migration, debt crisis, unemployment, establishment assaults on democracy, dumbed down education, racial and religious tensions, offshoring jobs to low labour cost areas etc.) in order that the billionaires who meet each year for this jamboree will profit from.
The venue for Bilderberg 2016 is The Taschenbergpalais hotel in Dresden. The event, which starts tomorrow and lasts until June 12 is filling up with pistol-packing plainclothes security as the last regular guests check out and what could be described as the annual convention of the world's greatest paranoiacs gets into gear.
Heavies in black suits and ray bans lurk in the corridors the corridors, or patrol the perimeter fences checking for signs of attempts at unauthorised entry. In the hotel lobby, corporate goons gather in muttering huddles. The Guardian's Bilderberg correspondent Charlie Skelton tells us:
According to the local newspaper DNN, at least 400 police officers will be surrounding the venue for the three days of the talks. There’s already a ring of concrete blocks around the entrance.Year after year, an elite group of extremely rich and powerful bankers, investors, natural resource owners and corporate overlords seem to think it’s worth heading for the Bilderberg shindig, which we are told is just a bunch of rich people enjoying a jolly old shindig over coffee and petit fours or cocktails and canapes.
Is that not enough? What are they expecting? The charge of the light brigade?
The hotel is being trussed up tighter than Reid Hoffman’s trousers. No one gets in or out without the right lanyard. As Ed Balls remembers only too well, from that awkward business in Copenhagen. Inside the security cordon, the final nervy tweaks are being made by conference staff. They’ve got to make sure Henry Kissinger’s curtains don’t let any light in. A single ray could be fatal.
Believe that and you'll believe anything. So what is really bringing the head of Google, two prime ministers, a vice-president of the European commission, the chairmen of HSBC and several other banks, George Soros, David Rockefeller, Jacob Rothschild, and a host of billionaires and business leaders together in the same hotel basement for the three days in June? On its official website, Bilderberg attempts an answer. It describes itself as “a forum for informal discussions” that are “designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America”. Dialogue which is designed to foster dialogue. Pure, unadulterated bollocks.
Charlie Skelton, a freelancer who has covered bilderberg for years, tells us that’s nonsense. And yet Bilderberg insists “there is no desired outcome”. As Skelton comments: " That’s like a Club 18-30 rep saying there’s no desired outcome of his tequila groin-slurping contest. Someone’s getting something out of the event. Even if that something is chlamydia."
For years, from 1954 to sometime in the 1990s we were told Bilderberg did not exist, it was all a conspiracy theory dreamed up by left / right wing anti establishment nutters. Now thanks to diligent investigative journalists and whistleblower sites like Wikileaks and The Intercept we know that not only is bilderber very real, they even have a rather disturbing (to those of us who do not want to live as slaves under a global totalitarian government) agenda.
What is really discussed at Bilderberg is how to take existing trends in the world, some favorable and mold them in such a way as to concentrate even more wealth and power in the hands of the world's top 0.01%, while preserving the status quo politically and economically, even though most of the world, and even the IMF agrees the current model is no longer working.
As Paul Joseph Watson infers, the secretive Bilderberg Group whose Steering Committee Advisory Group consists of one, David Rockefeller, will discuss how to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president, the possibility of mass riots as a result of wealth inequality, the migrant crisis, the rise of populism as well as the United Kingdom’s vote on leaving the European Union.
As noted above, the official list of "key topics" to be discussed is both broad quite vague and includes:
- Current events
- Europe: migration, growth, reform, vision, unity
- Middle East
- US political landscape, economy: growth, debt, reform
- Cyber security
- Geo-politics of energy and commodity prices
- Precariat and middle class
- Technological innovation
Of course, that will never happen, because the real agenda must remain under wraps. However one can infer from the agenda and some of the names on the participant list what the group will be discussing. As PJW writes, the attendance of anti-Trump Senator Lindsey Graham is an obvious sign that Donald Trump will be a prominent topic of discussion at this year's Bilderberg meeting, with the likely focus on how to prevent Trump from defeating Bilderberg’s chosen candidate, Hillary Clinton, who has already raked in tens of millions in fees from "speaking" before numerous participants at the meeting.
In 2015, the Bilderberg elite was confident that Clinton could with their backing and funding, blow away the Republican challengers, but the brave campaign of Bernie Sanders to stop Clinton being the sole candidate for the Democrats nomination and Trump’s self-funded campaign aimed at disillusioned white voters and his public opposition to globalism and internationalist trade deals like TTIP and TPP has shocked the elitists as has the popularity of anti EU parties in Europe. As a result, it will now have to spend much more time dealing with the damage control.
Brexit will be another major topic. With opinion polls on the British referendum showing the public mood edging towards leave, the vote only two weeks away and David Cameron getting concerned that he can't guarantee the result his globalist masters want, a vote to secede threatens to trigger more exits by member states the future of the European Union federal superstate that was the brainchild of Bilderberg in the first place.
The inclusion of “precariat and middle class” on the list also means that the powerful lobby group will be ruminating on how they can exploit and manage the inevitability of more riots and civil unrest in the west - and increasingly, the east with an emphasis on China whose government is terrified about the prospect of rising social unrest - a topic that elitists were also concerned about at the 2015 Davos Economic Summit.
The flooding of Europe with third world migrants, a process which has driven European voters into the arms of nationalist parties that typically oppose Bilderberg’s wider agenda, will also be a key topic of discussion, as per bullet point 3.
An interesting name on this year's list of attendees is that of Richard Engel, NBC News’ chief foreign correspondent. "Normally, a semi-secret meeting of over 100 of the most powerful people on the planet would be a monumental news scoop, but don’t expect Engel to utter a word about what goes on." After all, real journalists are not allowed anywhere on the premises; Engel likely has to sign an Non Disclosure Agreement. Ind in these days of spin and presentation, the task of mainstream media is to ensure the big stories about what is going on in the world are NOT reported.
Bilderberg operates under the so called Chatham House Rules, which means that none of the participants are able to reveal any comments made during the conference. As the Guardian floridly puts it, "after the politicians drag their drained and bloodless bodies back to their respective parliaments, they don’t say a word about what happened. They act like abuse victims. “It’s just our little secret,” murmurs Henry Kissinger as he pops the politicians back into their coffins.
Although it was reported in the German media that German Chancellor Angela Merkel would attend this year’s conference, her name does not appear on the list. However, it is a common practice for Bilderberg to omit names from the official list if the individual’s attendance is politically sensitive.
OK, now you know as much as David Icke, Charlie Skelton and I do about this year's Bilderberg group meeting. So don't call us conspiracy theorists OK?
What Is A Globalist? - Globalism Explained
If you have been following political trends you will probably be bored with the words "globalist" and "globalism" which tend to be bandied about a lot. In fact the advocates of globalism far from being the social justice warriors of their imagination, are avid supporters of the establishment, centralisation of authority, the abolition of free speech, social engineering and all the socio - economic policies well - read people associate with fascism rather than liberalism.
Globalization: The False Narrative and The Death Of Western Steel Industry
In popular perception, the downfall of the steel industry in Britain, Europe and the USA symbolizes the decline of manufacturing industry in the developed world more clearly than any other of the past half century's economic trends.
