The Bilderberg Group Exposed
The Bilderberg Group Exposed is a chilling non-fictitious story about an elite group of people who, since 1954, have been changing the global political arena. This story is not about a conspiracy theory; it’s about a conspiracy fact. This story exposes what this elite group is; who their core members are; who they invite to their annual meetings; their goals; their achievements to date as well as their overall objectives.

Globalization is a widely used term that can be defined in a number of different ways. When used in an economic context, it refers to the reduction and removal of barriers between national borders in order to facilitate the flow of goods, capital, services and labor.
Globalization is not a new phenomenon. It began in the late nineteenth century; but its spread slowed during the period from the start of the First World War until the third quarter of the twentieth century. This slowdown can be attributed to the inward looking policies pursued by a number of countries in order to protect their respective industries. However; the pace of globalization picked up rapidly during the fourth quarter of the twentieth century and the European Union (EU) is a realistic example of a regional form of globalism.
The EU is an economic and political union of 27 European member States. It was established by the Treaty of Maastricht on November 1st, 1993, upon the foundations of the pre-existing European Economic Community. With almost 500 million citizens, the EU member states combined, generate an estimated 30% share (US$16.8 trillion in 2007) of the nominal gross world product.
The EU has developed a single market through a standardized system of laws which apply in all member states, guaranteeing the freedom of movement of people, goods, services and capital. It maintains common policies on trade, agriculture, fisheries, and regional development. Sixteen member states have adopted a common currency, the Euro. It has developed a role in foreign policy, representing its members in the World Trade Organization at G8 summits as well as the United Nations. Twenty-one EU countries are also members of NATO. The EU has developed a role in justice and home affairs, including the abolition of passport controls between many member states which form part of the Schengen Area, which also incorporates some associated European non-EU countries.
The EU operates through a complex hybrid system of intergovernmentalism and supranationalism. In certain areas, it depends upon agreement between the member states. However; it also has supranational bodies, able to make decisions without unanimity between all national governments. Important institutions and bodies of the EU include the European Commission, the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union, the European Council, the European Court of Justice and the European Central Bank. EU citizens elect the Parliament every five years. The EU traces its origins to the European Coal and Steel Community formed among six countries in 1951 and the Treaty of Rome in 1957. Since then the union has grown in size through the accession of new countries, and in addition, new policy areas have been added to the remit of the EU’s institutions.
Apart from language, religion and culture, twenty-seven former sovereign countries are now virtually one homogeneous entity. Even though these twenty-seven countries still retain their respective Governments, their power is somewhat limited in so much as the real governance of the European Union is primarily the EU Commission (EUC) based in Brussels, Belgium. Many people believe that a regional globalism such as the EU, is a precursor to a world-wide globalism, commonly referred to as a New World Order.
New World Order (NWO)
In international relations theory, the term “New World Order” refers to a new period of history, evidencing a dramatic paradigm shift in world political thought and the balance of power that could be interpreted as the advent of a cryptoclastic or totalitarian World Government.
At the core of most theories, a powerful and secretive group of globalists is conspiring to eventually rule the World through an autonomous World Government, which would replace sovereign states and other checks and balances in international power struggles. Significant occurrences in politics and business are speculated to be caused by an extremely influential cabal, operating through many front organizations. Numerous historical and current events are seen as steps in an on-going plot to achieve World domination primarily through secret political gatherings and decision-making processes. Social critics have expressed concern that the synthesis of paranoid theories about a New World Order conspiracy, which was once limited to American far-right audiences, has given them mass appeal and enabled them to become commonplace in mass media, thereby inaugurating an unrivaled popular conspiracist culture in the US of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Some warn that this development may have negative effects on American political life, such as producerist demagogy and moral panic influencing elections as well as domestic and foreign policy.
While we may read or hear that there are covert groups that have already started to gradually take over the World, we are either impervious; don’t believe it or don’t have the political will to confront it. Allow me to present one such group.
Bilderberg Group Overview
The Bilderberg Group was formed in 1954, primarily by the powerful banking families of the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers, along with royal Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands who had strong ties with the Nazi regime. The group meets annually with approximately 130 guests consisting of Europe’s and America’s most wealthy and noble elites from politics, royalty, business, banking, education, media and the military. The overall goal of the group is to bring about a One World Government and global financial system under the political body of a UN style Government controlled by the central banking systems of the Rockefellers and Rothschilds. They are also advocates of aspects of modern eugenics and have plans to eventually reduce the world‘s population by 80%, as called for by the 1974 UN Assessment on Biodiversity. In his own words, on multiple occasions, Prince Philip of England has expressed his desire to ‘cull’ the surplus population. “In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation”.

Bilderberg Key Objectives
Zero-Growth Society. In a post-industrial period, zero growth will be necessary to destroy vestiges of general prosperity. When there is prosperity, there is progress. Prosperity and progress make it impossible to implement repression, and you need repression if you hope to divide society into owners and slaves. The end of prosperity will bring an end to virtually all industrialization except for the computer and service industries. The remaining Canadian and American industries would be exported to poorer countries such as Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and Nicaragua, where slave labor is cheap. One of the principal objectives of NAFTA will then have been realized.
One International Identity. By empowering International bodies to completely destroy all national identity through subversion from within, they intend to establish one set of universal values. No others will be allowed to flourish in the New World Order society.
Centralized Control of the People. By means of mind control, they plan to direct all humanity to obey their wishes. The blueprint of this plan is chillingly described in Zbigniew Brzezinski’s book, Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era (details). He is also an associate of Henry Kissinger and well known for his presentations at several Bilderberg Conferences. He foresees, under the New World Order, no middle class; only rulers and servants.
State of Perpetual Imbalance. Will be artificially achieved by manufacturing crises that will put people under continual duress – physically, mentally, financially and emotionally. Too tired and strung-out to decide their own destinies, populations will be confused and demoralized to the extent that, “faced with too many choices”, apathy on a massive scale will result.
Western Trading Bloc. By expanding NAFTA throughout the Western Hemisphere into Mexico, the US and Canada, a “North American Union” will eventually form and be modeled after the European Union.
One Legal & Enforcement System. The International Court of Justice will become the sole legal system for the World. In addition, as the UN intervenes in more trouble-spots globally (as is the current case in Afghanistan), NATO will increasingly become the UN’s World army.
Centralized Control of All Education. One of the reasons for the European Union, the North American Union and the future Asian Union, is to collectively seek greater control of education in general, so as to allow “One World” globalists to sterilize the World’s true past. They contend that today’s youth is almost completely ignorant of the lessons of history, individual liberties and the meaning of freedom and that this ignorance will only simplify their program.
Have conceived and established the European Union as the centerpiece of their global Government plan as well as having established the Euro as the Union’s common and only legal currency.
Bilderberg senior member David Rockefeller, founded the Trilateral Commission in 1973 to foster closer cooperation among core democratic industrialized areas of the world (the European Union; the US; Canada and Japan) with shared leadership responsibilities in the wider International system. Journalist Bill Moyers (PBS) spoke about the power of David Rockefeller in a television documentary, “The Secret Government” in 1980 Details
Have established influential US contacts in virtually all Government, military, academic and business arenas. During the group’s 1991 conference in Germany, a young Bill Clinton met with David Rockefeller who told Clinton why NAFTA was a Bilderberg priority and that the group needed him to support it. The next year, Clinton was elected President and became a strong proponent of NAFTA as was previous US President George H. W. Bush.
Under the previous George W Bush administration, they had already started to advance their goal of a “North American Union”. Globalization has already changed the US economic and political landscape through treaties such as NAFTA and the proposed Security and Prosperity Partnership program (SPP).
Again, under the same Bush administration, the US Patriot Act is a statute that was signed into law on October 26th, 2001. It has been criticized by many for weakening protections of civil liberties, as well as being overbroad in regard to its circumstances of application. In particular, opponents of the law have criticized its authorization of indefinite detentions of immigrants; searches through which law enforcement officers search a home or business without the owner’s or the occupant’s permission or knowledge; the expanded use of National Security Letters, which allows the FBI to search telephone, email and financial records without a court order; and the expanded access of law enforcement agencies to business records, including library and financial records. Since its passage, several legal challenges have been brought against the act, and Federal courts have ruled that a number of provisions are unconstitutional.

Note 1: There have also been 67 high profile people from the US who had attended one meeting between 2000 and 2007 that have been excluded from my list. I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt. It is possible that one-time only guests may have attended simply out of curiosity and do not necessarily espouse the objectives of the Bilderberg group. Furthermore; a guest’s place of work was established when he/she first attended a meeting and may have changed since then. If you are curious about who these 67 people are, refer to Note 2.
Note 2: My source for the “attendees” list, including one-time guests can be found by clicking on: Bilderberg Conference Attendees which lists attendees from all countries by year from 1991 to 2008. I have also created a Lotus spreadsheet that contains the following information:
1. The names & titles of all guests from all countries who have attended Bilderberg meetings between 2007 and 2007 inclusive.
2. Which annual meeting(s) that each guest attended as well as what Companies; Foundations; Organizations and Government sectors that each guest is or has been a part of

While I don’t have a native Excel version, I am told that Excel can open a Lotus file. If not, perhaps you can convert the Lotus file to Excel; send a copy of your Excel version to the aforementioned eMail address so that in the future, I can offer both a Lotus and Excel version of this information packed spreadsheet.
A simple question that begs a simple answer
In more than fifty years of meetings that brings together unprecedented power and money at the same time and place, never has any information been leaked out as to what subjects were debated during the Bilderberg Club meetings. How, in God’s name, can this be possible when the Bilderberg group’s elite membership list includes all of the most powerful individuals who run the Planet? What do the world’s most powerful people talk about at these meetings? Any modern democratic system protects the right to privacy; but doesn’t the public have a right to know what their political leaders are talking about when they meet with the wealthiest business leaders of their respective countries? What guarantees do citizens have that the Bilderberg Group isn’t a center for influence trafficking and lobbying if they aren’t allowed to know what their representatives talk about at the Club’s secret gatherings?,
Why do none of the mainstream corporate media outlets consider a gathering of such figures, to be newsworthy when a trip by any one of them on their own makes headline news on TV?
In the United States today, it is a select handful of extremely wealthy families who own the major Media such as ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, Time magazine, Newsweek, the US News & World Report, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune; – even such regional giants as the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Miami Herald, the San Diego Herald-Tribune and the list goes on and on.

Why is there no Mainstream Media Coverage?
Why do none of the mainstream corporate media outlets consider a gathering of such figures, to be newsworthy when a trip by any one of them on their own makes headline news on TV? You will note that several members of the mainstream media were in attendance at these meetings; yet, not one word of the Bilderberg meetings hath they spoken. Just look at who attended from US mainstream Medias:
International Herald Tribune: John Vinocur – Senior Correspondent
New York Times: Thomas Friedman – Foreign Affairs Correspondent.
Newsweek International: Fareed Zakaria – Editor.
NBC News: Andrea Mitchell – Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent.
Rose Communications: Charlie Rose – President

Wall street Journal: Max Boot – Features Editor.
Washington Post: Donald E. Graham – Publisher.
Washington Post:: Jim Hoagland – Associate Editor.

Amazing – Twelve high-profile US Media people and not one word about the Bilderberg meetings that they attended – Why why why?
An Authoritative Expert on the Bilderberg Group
Daniel Esulin is an investigative journalist and is one of the World’s leading experts on the Bilderberg Group. He wrote the True Story of the Bilderberg Group (original title: La Verdadera Historia Del Club Bilderberg), a report on the nature and meetings of the World’s most powerful people. According to Estulin, the ultra-secretive Bilderbergers have been making major and important political, economical and social decisions since their first gathering in 1954. His book was named Non-fiction Book of the year in Canada by the Kingston Eye Opener, and became an international bestseller.
In December 2007, he claimed that he had received information from sources inside the US intelligence community which suggested that people from the highest levels of the US Government were considering an assassination attempt against Congressman Ron Paul, because they felt threatened by his burgeoning popularity as a presidential candidate.
In a recent interview, he stated: My father was a Soviet dissident who fought for freedom of speech and was jailed and tortured by the KGB. We are Russian ex-patriots who were deported from the Soviet Union in 1980 and settled in Canada. After having lived in Canada for 12 years, I moved to Spain where I still reside. My grandfather was a Colonel in the KGB and had been involved in counter-intelligence activities in the 1950s. I will always remember what my grandfather had told me: Most secret service people (KGB, MI6 & CIA) work for the secret service, because they are true patriots and do their work for the love of their respective countries; however, they’re the first ones that are absolutely terrified of the plans of the Bilderberg Group.
Certain US States are taking Precaution
While not mentioning the Bilderberg group by name, ten states have drafted a proposal requesting the US Congress to withdraw the United States from any activity that seeks to create a North American Union, which as we recall, is one of the key objectives of the Bilderberg group. The following is the South Carolina proposal: Source: South Carolina.
Other states with similar proposals include: Georgia; Illinois; Missouri; Montana; Oregon; South Dakota; Utah; Virginia and Washington.
Judge for yourself if the Bilderberg group is a myth or a reality.
