“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected the promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years.” – David Rockefeller in a June 1991 address as reported by a French publication.
Prime Minister will take part in a debate on the global economy
Attendees include politicians, top business executives and royalty
Meeting being held in Watford and Cameron invited as head of government
But Downing Street say they will not give details of what is discussed
No 10 forced to deny decision runs counter to transparency agenda
Heavily-guarded event is the focus of conspiracy theorists
Over the past several decades, members of what’s known as the Bilderberg group have met in secret — far outside the prying eyes of of the media limelight. For years, high ranking political officials like Bilderberg regular Henry Kissinger have met with queens and business tycoons behind closed doors in meetings that violate the Logan Act. That is until investigative journalists like Jim Tucker decided to document the event and discover what the elite attendees had been discussing inside.
Jim Tucker discovered that these individuals were planning world changing events behind the closed doors of the meetings, thanks to his sources that managed to relay information to him regarding the conference. Sadly, Jim Tucker has since passed away, but Jim and others like Alex Jones have paved the way for a wider level of coverage than ever. Now, the news coverage surrounding the Bilderberg group is so tight that some Bilderberg members are slated to ‘defend’ the meetings publicly — meeting that were denied by the mainstream media for years (some truly laughable media talking heads still do).
THE SECRET IS OUT
Publications like Asia Times have covered the Bilderberg group, calling the attendees ‘The Masters of the Univserse’. WikiLeaks also brought attention to Bilderberg, posting the count of military, business, and political attendants at around 130. This year, The Telegraph actually published the ‘open’ list of attendees. And by open I mean the public list, as there are high profile attendees who are shuffled through the back via helicopter landings and so on. Interestingly, the article actually spins it into some royal get together, but it’s at least a major change in the flow of information for a publication like The Telegraph to be posting a Bilderberg attendee list.
At the end of the day, it will only open more curious readers to investigate further.
In a similar but more hard hitting report, The Guardian reported just yesterday on the Bilderberg meeting with the excellent title “Bilderberg 2013: welcome to 1984.” Detailing the massive wall that has gone up around the event to keep peaceful protesters and onlookers out, the report brought to light the total secrecy of the meeting. All in all, the reporting on Bilderberg is more on track than ever. In fact, members of the conference are likely extremely concerned. It reminds me of the David Rockefeller (a Bilderberg attendee as well) quote that details the Bilderberg blackout over the past several decades quite nicely:
David Cameron is to attend a meeting of the secretive Bilderberg Group tonight – but will not say who he meets.
The Prime Minister will take part in a debate on the global economy with an unknown group of ministers, business leaders and academics from around the world.
But his attendance at the heavily-guarded event is certain to spark controversy after Mr Cameron once promised to lead the ‘most open and transparent government in the world’.
Secret: David Cameron, pictured in Scotland today, is to attend the Bilderberg Group conference tonight, but Downing Street said it was a private meeting and will not say who he meets
Controversy: Protesters gathered to at vehicles arriving at the conference yesterday in protest at its secretive nature
Famous for being shrouded in secrecy, the Bilderberg conference is taking place in Britain for the first time since 1998 and conspiracy theorists believe this is where leaders plot world domination.
The huge police operation drafted in to monitor the four-day event in Watford, which has previously attracted mass demonstrations, could cost the British taxpayer as much as £2million or more, it has been claimed.
Mr Cameron is not due to give a speech but will take part in a discussion about ‘domestic and global economic issues’.

Cameron less popular than his party for the first time as just one in four voters think the Tories are united
The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: ‘It is a private meeting. He has been invited as head of the government here.
‘My understanding is that is is usual for the Bilderberg Group to invite the head of the government of the country in which it is meeting.
‘He feels it is an opportunity to discuss economic issues with senior ministers, business people and academics.
The spokesman said he thought it was the first time Mr Cameron had joined a meeting of the shadowy group. But as Tory leader he attended in 2008.
The Prime Minister has made great play of his commitment to be more open about who he meets.
In 2010 he promised: ‘We want to be the most open and transparent government in the world.’
Downing Street was forced to deny that Mr Cameron’s decision to attend this evening ran counter to his pledge.
The spokesman added: ‘The Prime Minister has always been clear about the importance of transparency, which is why this Government has taken a number of steps in terms of publishing more data, more information and making details of meetings available.
‘We publish far more information on meetings than previous governments. The Prime Minister regularly has meetings with key ministers from other countries and with business people and others as part of his job.
‘That doesn’t mean that he is not determined to lead the most transparent government.’

No Arrests of Bilderberg Delegates to be Made By Hertfordshire Police ~ Including War Criminal Henry Kissinger
By Neil Foster – Sovereign Independent UK –
Following enquiries made by myself over the past few weeks through the Spanish Embassy in Madrid and its London base in the UK into the presence of an active arrest warrant for Henry Kissinger, I have as yet simply been given the run around from one embassy to the other receiving no confirmation or denial of such a warrant existing. If there wasn’t one then I would think that a straightforward ‘no’ would suffice.
I put this to a Hertfordshire police officer who stated that he would look into the matter on my behalf. He has informed me that Hertfordshire police are unaware of any warrant being in place for Henry Kissinger and that, according to the Spanish Embassy in London, that no such warrant does in fact exist.
He also confirmed that no arrests of any delegates would be made by Hertfordshire police.
I wonder if that means that Bilderberg delegates are actually above the law in the UK as was Kissinger at the Trilateral Commision Meeting in Dublin in 2010?

Since its inception in 1954, Bilderberg has held annual gatherings of 120-150 invited political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia and the media, designed to ‘foster dialogue between Europe and North America’.
The group describes the conference as ‘a forum for informal, off-the-record discussions about megatrends and the major issues facing the world’ and states that the private nature of the meeting allows participants to ‘listen, reflect and gather insights’ without being bound by the conventions of office or by pre-agreed public positions.
There is no detailed agenda, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued.

Ring of steel: Police officers man a road block as delegates arrived for the four-day meeting
Several cars with blacked-out windows entered the gates of the Grove Hotel, near Watford, in Hertfordshire, have been seen arriving the secretive meeting.
It is thought billionaire executives from multinational companies such as Amazon and Google, high-ranking political figures including Chancellor George Osborne, senior minister Ken Clarke and shadow chancellor Ed Balls and even members of royal families are among the 130 or so attendees.
Downing Street refused to comment on the huge police operation surrounding the event, which has been heavily criticised.
Watford town mayor Dorothy Thornhill said: ‘I think it’s outrageous that the local taxpayer has to pick up the tab for ostensibly a private meeting of trillionaires, probably the most wealthy people in the world.
‘Hertfordshire Constabulary have suddenly got this unexpected budget strain dumped on them at literally a month’s notice. It’s not on. full
