What is the Bilderberg Group?
The Bilderberg group is an annual, invitation-only conference. Those in attendance number between 120 and 150 and are influential individuals from throughout North America and Western Europe. Some are from governments, most are from finance, industry, labor, education, and communications.
These are secret meetings that politicians are often invited to prior to an explosion of media coverage focusing on said politicians; often this coincides with a run for some type of office.
History of the Bilderberg group
The first Bilderberg meeting was held at the Hotel de Bilderberg in the Netherlands during May 1954.
Notably, Polish politician Jo'zef Retinger, along with several other people concerned with growing anti-American sentiment in Western Europe, proposed the first Bilderberg meeting. Jo'zef Retinger devoted much of his political energy to advocating the unification of Europe.
The meeting was intended to bring together leaders from Europe and the US in order to attain better understanding of the inter-workings of European and US politics, economics, and so called "national defense".
Elites in the Western world became concerned that the United Nations was no longer controlled by western powers. Representatives from third world countries are not invited to the Bilderberg conference. It has been said that they don’t want to become a “mini united nations”.
Notable people who helped found the Bilderberg meetings
Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands - a former Nazi who left the party in 1934, the year that Hitler became Fuhrer.
Paul van Zeeland - A liberal socialist who served as economic adviser to the council of ministers of NATO between 1949 and 1954; 1954 is the year that Bilderberg held its first conference.
The head of Unilever at the time. Keep in mind that Unilever and Nestle have long been in competition with each other. The former making use of child labor in India and the latter in Cote d' Voire for the cocoa industry.
Walter Bedell Smith- Head of the CIA at the time. During his administration the CIA vastly expanded its function from merely gathering intelligence to being the branch of government responsible for covert operations.
Edmond De Rothschild - Has been a member of the groups steering committee.
David Rockefeller - sits as the single member of the member advisory group to the steering committee. Also a pivotal part of the formation of the original Bilderberg meeting along with Carnegie and Ford.
Sharon Percy Rockefeller – served on the steering committee
Structure of the Bilderberg group
The inner circle of the Bilderberg group consists of an advisory group of which David Rockefeller has been a member. The names and number of the advisory group members are unknown to me. The membership of the advisory group is a well guarded secret and even Bilderberg attendees know that they will not be informed on the matter.
The member advisory group then trickles down influence to a steering committee composed of 32 members all from first world countries and influential in either business, finance, government, or media. Members of the advisory group are also sometimes members of the steering committee. Members of the committee are elected for four years and can be re-elected.
The committee then elects a chairman who leads discussions, prepares the invitation list, and makes suggestions on the composition of the committee. The chairman is answerable to the member advisory group.
In 1960 Ernst van der Beugel became the secretary who answers to the member advisory group upon Jo'zef Retingers death. He resigned in 1976, the year of the Lockheed affair in which US aerospace company Lockheed payed millions in bribes to Dutch, Japanese, West German, Italian, Chinese, and Saudi Arabian officials so that they would buy aircraft produced by Lockheed.
Fifty delegates from eleven Western European countries attended the first meeting, along with 11 Americans.
The meetings were from then on held annually and a register of attendees was kept. The attendees also exchanged names and contact information creating a secretive, informal network of coalescents.
Bilderberg meetings have been held all over the world. The first meeting in the US was held in St. Simons Georgia. Every nation invited to send representatives to the Bilderberg has two representatives. One representing conservative points of view, the other liberal. This is why we can not trust either political party in America today. In fact David Rockefeller stated in his own memoirs:
“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” – David Rockefeller as stated in his own memoirs
Indeeed, many people have taken issue with the Rockefellers and/or the Bilderberg group. Their ranks include, but are not limited to, the John Birch Society, activist Phyllis Schlafly, journalist Jim Tucker, Lyndon La Rouche, Alex Jones, Jesse Ventura, Russian-Canadian Daniel Estulin, David Icke, and even Fidel Castro.
In August of 2010 Castro wrote an article for the Cuban Communist Party Paper Granma in which he cited Daniel Estulins' 2006 book saying "sinister cliques and the Bilderberg lobbyists" [manipulating the public] "to install a world government that knows no borders and is not accountable to anyone but its own self."
If you can't tell from the above text, when you are not a member of the Bilderberg group you are extremely likely to get the short end of the stick regardless of who you are, where you're from, or what you believe in. When members of the Bilderberg group reach a consensus over anything, powerful strings from finance, industry, labor, education, and communications can be tugged on all over the world. Imagine the insider trading, money laundering, and racketeering that this group would be capable of ; and of course secrecy is paramount among the Bilderbergs. The FBI should have reason enough to concern themselves with club Bilderberg considering the membership roster and David Rockefellers' memoirs where he confesses to being part of a "secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States".
Only a more educated and discontent public can oppose the Bilderberg group. If they are united, and the people are divided, then oligarchy rules. It is not satisfactory to merely see a popular candidate win political office. We as conscious citizens and consumers must ensure that these issues face persistent and widespread public scrutiny; so much so that the issue simply can not be avoided in the public arena any longer. This will pressure the one-world conspirators into delaying their plans a little longer. We must never rest our case.

Bilderbergs media blackout
No one is allowed to occupy the premises of a hotel or building where the conference is held. Reporters and journalists are regularly arrested for intruding on the premises of a conference or taking pictures of vehicles headed to or from the conference.
The Bilderberg group today
According to Jim Tucker, long time Bilderberg investigator, a mole inside both Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission has informed him that current Secretary of Defense Leon E. Panetta attended the meeting in 2011 along with Bill Gates.
Jim Tucker also stated he was informed that Bilderberg felt the world is too populated and there is no way to control the population without war.

We are opposed by a ruthless and monolithic conspiracy.
The very word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society. And we are as a people, inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths, and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago, that the dangers of excessive and unwarrented concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.
To be blind is bad, but worse is to have eyes and not see. - Hellen Keller
