The 2012 Bilderberg Conference

86 posts in this topic

Chantilly's Westfields Marriott hotel is the site of an “unprecedented” security crackdown as the world’s richest and most powerful arrive for the annual Bilderberg conference.

Hundreds of demonstrators are expected to protest the highly secretive gathering, which kicks off Thursday and lasts through the weekend. The off-the-record meeting, well known in conspiracy lore but typically given little to no media attention each year, once again will bring together heads of state, billionaire bankers, leading businessmen and other international movers and shakers.

A perimeter of about a half-mile has been set up around the Northern Virginia hotel, and all non-Bilderberg guests reportedly were kicked out of their rooms. A photographer for The Washington Times was told by law enforcement Wednesday that any attempt to get close to the building would result in arrest.

The official Bilderberg guest list is kept under wraps, as are the specific topics for discussion. Rumored to be at the top of the agenda this year is the European financial crisis.

Frequent attendees, including Henry A. Kissinger and David Rockefeller, are expected again. A copy of last year’s guest list, leaked to a journalist covering the conference, offers a window into just how much influence Bilderberg guests wield.

Google Chairman Eric Schmidt, World Bank President Robert B. Zoellick, European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands and Greek Minister of Finance George Papaconstantinou were reportedly among those in attendance at the 2011 meeting in Switzerland.

Global business titans, government officials and political figures rounded out the guest list of more than 100, though skeptics suspect dozens of names, especially of high-profile individuals, are kept off of it.

The Bilderberg organization releases virtually no information about the meeting.

Its website, bilderbergmeetings.org, states that the yearly conference “is a small, flexible, informal and off-the-record international forum in which different viewpoints can be expressed and mutual understanding enhanced.”

Critics say the organization’s benign description doesn’t come close to reality. It is at the Bilderberg’s annual meeting, they argue, that the world’s real rulers make major decisions with global implications, such as choosing future political leaders surreptitiously.

Some say the group also is laying the groundwork for an eventual one-world government, for plans to impose worldwide population control, and for using such global issues as climate change to repeal democracy or free speech.

That would be a good place for an asteriod to hit.

Given the impressive list of attendies it's funny that there is barely, if any mention of this in the main stream media.

Especially in today's world where the group can't even hide it's existence anymore. And even if the mainstream media does make mention of it, they'd do so in passing - as if it's no big deal despite the number of "elite" attendees at the meeting every year.

It's bizarre that a conference of this kind could be occurring as we speak, and yet the mainstream media makes no mention of it. It isn't right.

Don't you guys find it rather odd that the story pushing the idea that it's "hardly ever mentioned in the mainstream media" is from the mainstream media?

I've seen references to the meeting on pretty much every news site I've visited today - shockingly secret!

It will be interesting to see if any photographers capture the famous, filthy rich on cam. I wouldn't be surprised to find the whole thing was a diversion from where the real meeting was being held.....or for that matter, it could even just be an elaborate joke. Those dastardly 1% ers are like that, ya know? :w00t:

Nonetheless, if it weren't for people that oppose this gathering there would be far less mainstream "references" to the meeting than there all ready is - contrary to your statements above.

Also, merely "referencing" the meeting is far from reporting on it. Please show me, or tell me, of one mainstream news outlet on television that reported on this conference. Then, if you are able to find any, please direct me to any that did an in-depth report on what actually takes place at the Bilderberg meetings.

If you could direct me to a mainstream news outlet's website that gives an in-depth report on what goes on at this meeting I'd like to see that as well.

When I do a Google News search for "Bilderberg" the only links to anything that could be considered mainstream outlets about the gathering is to The Washington Times and The Huffington Post. There is nothing from ABC, NBC, CBS, CNBC, MSNBC, CNN, USAToday, FOX, and numerous numbers of newspapers.

The main thing I've seen discussed on these stations today is the John Edwards trial with nothing at all being said in regards to Bilderberg.

This video should worry many viewers.

CNN's founder Ted Turner is on record saying the earths population should be reduced to 2 billion people.

When Luke says to Mr. Turner he has 5 kids his reply is, "My youngest is 40.... and the population back then was just 3 billion... we need a one child policy".

hahha... meanwhile, your newly crowned Premiere of Alberta is there on 'un-official government business' yet Albertan tax payers are footing the 19K bill for her to go there for 4 days. Read that in the Calgary Herald today.

Look:

Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith is not a fan either, blasting Redford for choosing the "private, invite-only" Bilderberg conference over federal NDP Leader Tom Mulcair's visit to the oilsands today.

"We have somebody who's appointed himself the bully of the block, calling out Alberta's oilsands industry. And rather than meet with him, she's decided to go to a secretive meeting in Virginia?" Smith said.

"I think we have to question her priorities."

Smith added taxpayers shouldn't be on the hook for Redford and an aide to attend the conference, which the official Opposition leader chalked up as a $19,000 "networking event" for the premier's post-politics career.

But speaking to reporters on Wednesday before leaving on her four-day trip, Redford said she won't keep secret what issues were discussed at Bilderberg, and "people who have a sophisticated approach to world affairs" understand there's meetings like this across the globe.

"The job of a premier is to advance Alberta's interests around the world, in a number of different forums, and I feel incredibly privileged to have been invited to this."

Listen to Luke interview *Snip* [Lawrence O'Donnell] from msnbc....

Enjoy!

[media=]

[/media]

If one considers Lawrence O'Donnell's belief system -- the person being "interviewed" in this video clip -- perhaps one can see why this leading News Personality from a major TV Network is so non-committal in his responses. Maybe one could even be forgiven for thinking that Lawrence O'Donnell has a pro-Bilderberg agenda?

Political views

O'Donnell called himself a "practical European socialist" in a 2005 interview.[2] Despite regularly expressing support for regulated capitalism and mixed economies, O'Donnell again declared himself a "socialist" on the November 6, 2010 Morning Joe show, stating: "I am not a progressive. I am not a liberal who is so afraid of the word that I had to change my name to 'progressive'. Liberals amuse me. I am a socialist. I lie to the extreme left, the extreme left of you mere liberals."[27] On the 1 August 2011 episode of The Last Word, O'Donnell further explained, "I have been calling myself a socialist ever since I first read the definition of socialism in the first economics class I took in college." O'Donnell went on to state that what he means by calling himself a socialist is

Not that we choose the socialist option every time but we do consider socialism a reasonable option under certain circumstances; in fact, under many circumstances. As any introductory economics course can tell you, there is no capitalist economy anywhere in the world, and there is no socialist economy anywhere in the world, not even Cuba. We are
all
mixed economies; that is, mixes of capitalism and socialism, and we all vary that mix in different ways. ... I can argue this because every side of this is true: capitalism is good, capitalism is bad; socialism is good, socialism is bad; all of those things are true at the same time. That's why we have a mixed economy, an economy in which we are trying to use the best, most efficient forms of capitalism, and the best, most efficient forms of socialism, where necessary. So my full truth is I am as much a capitalist as I am a socialist; but since we live in the only mature country in the world where "socialist" is considered such a dirty word that no one would dare admit to being one, I feel more compelled to stand up for the socialist side of me than the capitalist side of me.

Good videos, acidhead. Thanks for posting them. I watched them all.

As much I am against the Bilderberg Group, at least I have an idea of what their doing and why. It's totally wrong, but I'm knowledgeable enough to understand how these people see things and what their agendas are.

What puzzles me though, is that others could watch each and everyone of those videos and still give a response like this.

Have a little trouble with following timed sequences there Angel Left Wing? Uhh, those vids were posted AFTER the comments you cited. I watched some of them and was actually impressed with the level of anger in the last one. They definitely have the look of a group not wanting to be bothered. But give ME some credit as well. You have this super secret, assumed to be nefarious group meeting annually. They KNOW they are the subject of great speculation and intrepid reporters will be all over them yet they rent out a friggin' Marriot? Any one of them could host such a conference in their homes with better security if they really had something to hide. While we're on the subject, what is it exactly that you suppose they do?

Surely the Bilderbergs and their Giant Owl are hardly very secret now, thanks to people like the good Alex Jones and Jon Ronson. I'm sure that, like all these Conferences, nothing at all of any significance is done there; with mdoern communications it's hardly necessary to have all the Great and good- well, the Great anyway in one place, is it, I'm sure all the important business is decided by the medium of secure communications from their Secret Bunkers. these are all just opportunities to thoroughly test the contents of the hotel bars, aren't they, Conferences always are.

I didn't link to your post for a reason. I did give you some credit even though I thought you scoffed at the subject without being very informed about it.

I linked to Rafterman's comment because I've heard his thoughts about things like Bohemian Grove before and I am fairly certain that he could watch the videos acidhead posted and still act like there is nothing wrong with what the Bilderberg Group does or even admit to how ridiculously secretive the meeting itself (as opposed to its locaion) is. There are plenty others like him as well.

I think you are being a bit naive in your belief that they could hold this conference more secretively at one's house. These people come from all over the world and the attendance is over 100. There are other reasons as well, but I'm a bit too tired to get into them at this very moment.

As for what they discuss, I believe they discuss what the reporters question them about in the videos acidhead posted. Their own "official" website even lists a "New World Order" as one of the topics they talk about at this meeting. There's much more, but again, I'm about ready to sleep so I'll have to get into it later.

I also find it a bit odd that the world's greatest conglomeration of Billionaires would need to rent out a Marriot. It will be interesting to see if any photographers capture the famous, filthy rich on cam. I wouldn't be surprised to find the whole thing was a diversion from where the real meeting was being held.....or for that matter, it could even just be an elaborate joke. Those dastardly 1% ers are like that, ya know? :w00t:

I've often thought that as well. I wonder if they take the housekeeping and banquet staff out and execute them following each meeting.

Well, let's see, the HuffPo piece links a FoxNews video so that's a mainstream outlet. So who else is there, the Guardian, Pravda,and the Daily Mail - all mainstream outlets.

As to reporting on it, why is that important to you? It's a private meeting that doesn't allow outside press - just like tens of thousands of other meetings that will be going on around the world today.

BTW, you know they have a website right which list agendas, discussions sessions, governance, and all participants.

The most unsecret secret group in the world apparently.

I'll refer you to Brian Dunning's Skeptoid episode on the Bilderbergs: http://skeptoid.com/episodes/4225

It's quite interesting and not grounded in the paranoia that is so prevalent in these discussions.
