The Bilderbergers are an international group composed of European Royalty, Wall Street investors, politicians, international bankers, prominent businessmen, media executives, and military leaders from around the planet. "Those in attendance include leading political and financial figures from the United States and Western Europe," proclaimed Allen. Allen also says that it is probably "not accidental," that less than one person in 5,000 is aware of this group. Jim Marrs wrote, "The Bilderbergers are a group of powerful men and woman-many of them European royalty--who meet in secret each year to discuss the issues of the day."
The first official meeting of the Bilderbergers took place at the Hotel de Bilderberg in Oosterbeek, Holland in May 1954. It was formed in part by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, a former Nazi. "The primary impetus for the Bilderberger meetings came from Dutch Prince Bernhard," wrote author Marrs, "a former member of the Nazi Schutzstaffel (SS) and an employee of Germany's I.G. Farben in Paris." The Rockefellers and Rothschilds are said to have played an important part in its inception also. Pictured right is the Hotel de Bilderberg in Oosterbeek, Holland.(*)
Veteran journalist James P. Tucker has investigated the Bilderbergers nearly 30 years. His book, The Bilderberg Diary, which includes photographic evidence, is a well-documented account of the results of his investigation. In it he writes, "The Bilderberg group is an organization of political leaders and international financers that meets secretly every spring to make global policy. There are about 110 regulars," he says, including, "Rockefellers, Rothschilds, bankers, heads of international corporations and high government officials from Europe and North America." These people meet at varying locations around the planet.
Referring to the financial elite's various fronts, Professor Marrs wrote, "Comprising themselves in the form of the Bilderberger Group, they have met at least annually since 1954." Their meetings are by invitation only, and according to Gaylon Ross, of the three interlocking Think Tanks, they are the most secretive. They are also the most influential. Their meetings are financed by the Tax-exempt Foundations. Allen asked, "Why do the Ford, Rockefeller and Carnegie foundations finance the meetings if they are not important?"
In 1964, Dan Smoot acknowledged this elite group when he wrote, "The 'Bilderbergers' are another powerful group involved in the internationalist web." Speaking of the interlocking membership, he proclaimed, "American firms associated with the society are said to be among the large corporations whose officers are members of the Council on Foreign Relations and related organizations."
The Bilderbergers have close ties to Europe's nobility such as the British royal family, as well as royalty from Holland, Sweden and Spain. They also contain the same representatives in finance and industry as their counterparts, The Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations. There is also a heavy cross-membership with the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations.
"As with the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderbergers often carry cross-membership in two or more of these three groups, commented Marrs." Allen remarked, "Those who adhere to the accidental theory of history will claim that it is sheer coincidence that every single one of those named as past and present members of the Bilderberger Steering Committee is or was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations."
The Bilderbergers are said to be the organization that sets global policy which is then passed on to the CFR and TC to implement. While the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations both publish their membership rolls, the Bilderbergers keep the meetings, goals, and membership lists secret. "Bilderberg does not publish membership lists but they have been obtained by investigative reporters working for The Spotlight," wrote Ross.
Each year the hosting government is responsible for providing heavy security for three days, which includes: the military, the secret service, federal and local police, and private security firms. Allen explains, "The participants are housed in one location and are protected by a thorough security network. Decisions are reached, resolutions adopted, plans of action initiated..." A Swedish SWAT team member confronts Tucker during the 2001 Bilderberg meeting in Gothenburg Sweden.
"When they meet, they clear out all the guests, and employees in the building in which they are to meet," Ross said, and added "they completely de-bug all the rooms, bring in their own cooks, waiters, housekeepers, heavily armed security guards, etc. and do not allow 'outsiders' anywhere near the meeting place just before, during and immediately after they meet."
Continuing he explained, "Each time they have met on US soil, the meetings were held on Rockefeller owned property." According to veteran journalist Tucker, some hotel staff is allowed to stay but are given strict orders to never to speak to a Bilderberger unless spoken to, or look them in the eyes. The picture on the right was taken during the 2003 Bilderberg meeting in Versailles, France, where Bilderberg attendees received police escorts.

The Rutland Vermont Herald apparently received notice of a Bilderberg meeting when local officials were given instructions on how to prepare for it. It declared on April 20, 1971, "A rather tight lid of secrecy was being kept on the [Bilderberg] conference." "A closed-door meeting," it described, "was held in Woodstock last week to brief a handful of local officials on some phases of the [future] conference. ... The Woodstock Inn will apparently be sealed up like Fort Knox. ... No press coverage will be allowed."
Referring to the same meeting which took place on April 23, 1971 in Woodstock, Vermont, Allen wrote, "When Prince Bernhard arrived at Boston's Logan Airport, he did admit to reporters that the subject of the conference would be the "change in the world-role of the United States." Allen remarked, "Isn't it nice to have changes in America's role in the world decided upon by Bernhard, Rothschild and Rockefeller?"
The mainstream news will normally not report on these meetings. Speaking of the media blackout Tucker said, "Bilderberg has, at one time or another, had representatives of all major U.S. newspapers and network news outlets attend. They do so on their promise to report nothing. This is how Bilderberg keeps its news blackout virtually complete in the United States." According to Tucker, as part of a disinformation strategy, mainstream newspapers in the United States may even portray these meetings as harmless talk-sessions of little importance.
Marrs commented, "Unlike their American counterparts, some members of Scotland's news media found their voice. Under the headline, Whole World in their Hands, Jim McBeth of The Scotsman described the tight security surrounding the  meeting [at the Turnberry Hotel near Glasgow, Scotland], commenting, 'Anyone approaching the hotel who did not have a stake in controlling the planet was turned back.'"
"The press, naturally, is not allowed to be present, although occasionally a brief press conference is held at the end of the meeting at which time the news media are given in very general terms the Bilderberger version of what was discussed," observed Allen. Reporters that are not invited and attempt to document these meetings have been arrested. Marrs added, "Despite the fact that many highly regarded American media members meet with the Bilderbergers, little or nothing gets reported on the group or its activities..."
Although there is a media blackout concerning these meetings, the news media are always present, agreed Ross. He lists past attendees, "such as: Peter Jennings (BB, and Anchor and Senior Editor of ABC News, World News Tonight), Joseph C. Harsch (BB, CFR, and former Commentator for NBC, Inc.), Bill D. Moyers (BB, and Executive Director of Public Affairs TV, Inc., and former Director of the CFR), [and] William F. Buckley, Jr. (BB, CFR, and Editor-in-Chief of National Review, and host of PBS's Firing Line)."
Ross says other media personnel which have attended include, "Gerald Piel (BB, CFR, and former Chairman of Scientific America, Inc.), Henry Anatole Grunwald (BB, CFR, and former Editor-in-Chief of Time, Inc.), Mortimer B. Zuckerman (BB, CFR, and Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of the US News and World Report, New York Daily News, and Atlantic Monthly), Robert L. Bartley (BB CFR, TC, and Vice President of the Wall Street Journal)."
More media attendees, according to Ross, are Peter Robert Kann (BB, CFR) of Dow Jones and Company, Donald C. Cook of the Los Angeles Times, Thomas L. Friedman of the New York Times, and Katherine Graham owner of The Washington Post. Most of these attendees have cross memberships in the CFR and TC. Here to the right we see Washington Post publisher Donald Graham (center) during the 2004 meeting in Stresa, Italy.
Tucker commented that mainstream media apparently doesn't think these meetings are newsworthy. Evidently, for decades the Post and most other major media outlets didn't think the public would be interested in learning about these world leaders meeting to shape world events. Is it possible that there's something else of major significance they're not reporting or are being used to cover-up?
On May 26, 1995 the Swiss newspaper, Tagesschau, ran a story entitled, The Swiss Military to Protect International and Leading Economists and Statesmen. The article explained, "Prominent leaders from the world of politics and economics will be meeting at Nidwalden on Mt. Bergenstock, Switzerland, for the very secretive Bilderberg conference. ... [A]mong the participants are Leading Bankers, politicians and industrialists from Europe and North America. The Luminaries from the 1995 meeting include Kurt Furgler, Walter Scheel, Henry Kissinger, Helmut Kohl, Fiat Chairman Giovanni Agnelli, shipping magnate Stavos Niarchos, David Rockefeller and Prince Claus of the Netherlands."
The 1994 meeting in Helsinki, Finland, Tucker wrote, included, "In addition to Rockefeller and Kissinger, other familiar faces ... [such as] Lord Peter Carrington, Queen Beatrix of Holland, NATO chief Woerner, President Ahtisaari and Prime Minister Esko Aho of Finland, German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, German central banker Hans-Otto Pohl and Atos Erkko, a well known Finnish publisher."
To the top left we see David Rockefeller at the 2004 Stresa Italy Bilderberg meeting. Below it we see him again (seated right) next to Vernon Jordan. Standing is Richard Perle (far right), and Jessica Mathews of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
Also in attendance says Tucker, were, "Franz Vranitsky, President of Austria; Percy Barnevik, President of ABB (Asea Brown Boveri Ltd.) of Sweden; Giovanni Agnelli, head of the giant Fiat firm in Italy; Max Jacobson and Jaakko Illoniemi of Finland; Rozanne Ridgway, Assistant Director of the White House Office of Management and Budget; and Volker Ruhe of Germany." Tucker lists other attendees as, "Katherine Gram, owner of The Washington Post Co.; Louis Gerstner of IBM; Thomas Pickering, U.S. Ambassador to Russia; Brent Scowcroft, Adviser to Bush; Paul Allaire of Xerox; Peter Sutherland of Britain; [and] Queen Sofia of Spain."
Referring to the meeting in Versailles, France in 2003, Tucker announced, "The following have been positively identified as participating: Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands; Ali Babacan, Minister of the Economy in Turkey; King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia of Spain; Jacques Chirac, President of France, Kenneth Clark, former British Chancellor of the Exchequer and member of the Parliament; Etienne D'avignon, Societe General of Belgium; Jean Louis Debre, President of the French National Assembly; Kermal Dervis, Turkey; Sevein Gjerem, CEO of the National Bank of Norway."
Gerald Ford attended Bilderberg meetings 1964 and 1966, and in 1974 became President. And while Governor of Arkansas, Bill Clinton attended a 1991 meeting before becoming President in 1992. Regarding Clinton's Bilderberg connection, Marrs wrote, "In 1991, then Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton was honored as a Bilderberg guest. The next year he ran for and won the presidency of United States."
The plan for a common European currency, the Euro, is said to have been formulated by the Bilderbergers. Tucker claims that the plan for a "European super-state" and the "euro" had been on the Bilderberg agenda for years. "It was viewed as a major step toward their goal of a world government and creates a favorable climate for the huge banks to consume the small ones and for the huge, international conglomerates to absorb the small firms," he observed.
Quoting a Bilderberger, Marrs added that, "Jack Sheinkman, Chairman of Amalgamated Bank and a Bilderberger member, stated in 1996, 'In some cases discussions do have an impact and become policy. The idea of a common European currency was discussed several years back before it became policy. We had a discussion about the U.S. establishing formal relations with China before Nixon actually did it.'"
"Bilderberg has had a direct influence on the White House since President Dwight Eisenhower's years," wrote Tucker. "They are accustomed to owning the president-whoever he is and whatever party is in control of the White House. A look back: Clinton, Trilateral and Bilderberg; Bush, Trilateral; Regan, received the Trilateralists at the White House and had his Vice President (Bush) address their meeting; Carter [Trilateralist] and his Vice President, Walter Mondale, both Bilderberg; Jerry Ford and his Vice President, Nelson Rockefeller, both Bilderberg..."
Tucker further proclaimed that "Most presidents have been members of at least one of these two groups [Bilderberg or Trilateral Commission], and all have had representatives attend Bilderberg meetings to receive their orders." Allen observed the same pattern; he stated, "While the 'new world order' is being built, the Bilderbergers coordinate the efforts of the European and American power elites." So according to this information the leaders of the NATO nations are covertly controlled by this elite group of financial elitists.
A single currency is said to be in the planning for the entire Western Hemisphere by the Bilderbergers, which will eventually be followed by a world currency. The Bilderbergers, according to Tucker, are also in the process of implementing a global citizens' tax which will be payable to the United Nations. He wrote, "Like the federal income tax, a UN levy would be so small at the outset the consumer would hardly notice. But establishing the principle that the UN can directly tax citizens of the world is important to Bilderberg. It is another giant step toward world government. It is openly discussed with little public notice or objection..."
The objective of the Bilderberg Group appears to be the same as its interlocking Think Tanks, which is a one-world dictatorship, dominated by the financial elite. Journalist Tucker asserts, "Leaders of Bilderberg and its brother group, the Trilateral Commission ... together make up the word shadow government." Tucker informs us that what the Bilderbergers really intend is "a global army at the disposal of the United Nations." And that "it has been a long standing goal of Bilderberg for the UN to become the world government to which all nations will be subservient."
To the right we see Honorary Bilderberg Chairman Etienne Davignon (left) with Paul Wolfowitz, former Secretary of Defense and current head of the World Bank, at the Bilderberg meeting in Rottach-Ergen, Germany in 2005. Professor Texe Marrs, has lectured at the University of Texas, authored over 25 books, and has retired from the USAF as an officer with numerous decorations. Writing with authority, backed by careful research, he concludes, "The goal of the Bilderbergers is to create a pretense [fake] democratic World Government, controlled by them."
Author Marrs noted that Bilderberg members that are not part of the inner-core, may not be aware of the true intentions or objectives of the group, and may be convinced that world government is the only way to peace. This also appears to be the situation with its interlocking Think Tanks, the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations.(*) "Not everyone who attends one of the Bilderbergers' secret meetings is an Insider," agreed Allen. "Bilderberg policy is not planned by those who attend the conferences, but by the elite steering committee of Insiders."
"Remember, the Bilderbergers are philosophically neither Republican nor Democrat, declared Professor Marrs. "Their only 'party' is filthy lucre. ... Money, in turn, brings them power, and these folks have a never satisfied appetite for raw power." Apparently Gorbachev was influenced by the Bilderbergers and talked about a global union during a speaking tour in the United States. "Gorbachev's speeches could have been dictated by Kissinger after being drafted by Rockefeller ... as content was concerned," charged Tucker. "Gorbachev held out the Bilderberg-Trilateral vision of a UN military force that could invade once-sovereign nations to enforce 'human rights.'" "The New World Order means a new kind of civilization," Gorbachev told the Chicago CFR on May 8, 1991.
Regarding how President Clinton pushed the Bilderberger objective in 1999, Tucker wrote, "It appeared in daily newspapers for all to read, but too many sleep. The developments were celebrated by The Washington Post's Bilderberg representative Jimmy Lee Hoagland in a column on June 27, 1999 ... [When he proclaimed], 'The president promises a future in which Americans stand ready to intervene militarily if they can stop wholesale racial or ethnic slaughter "within or beyond other nations' borders" ... He promises a new world order.'" The first American woman to attend a Bilderberg meeting was Hilary Clinton in 1997. Author Marrs senses they may have plans for her in the following years.
Presidents and prime ministers are selected by the Bilderbergers and controlled like puppets. Bilderberg meetings are guarded by the military, SWAT teams, local police and private security firms. Like the CFR, their policy is passed without public approval. Their goal is to create a world government under their control, which will have the illusion of freedom.
Their motives for establishing a global dictatorship using a fake democracy will be expanded upon when we examine a future chapter on psychopathy. Most are unaware of their existence due to a media blackout. Despite attending Bilderberg meetings, mainstream media owners have reported little on this group for over fifty years.
