The Bilderbergers

000016(Excerpted from Chapter 7: The Four Horsemen: Big Oil & Their Bankers…)

The Bilderbergers are a powerful group of European royalty, international bankers and industrialists.  They have no official name but are associated with their first publicly discovered meeting in 1954 at Oosterbeek, Holland’s Bilderberg Hotel.  Dutch Prince Bernhard founded the Bilderbergers with encouragement from the Rothschilds. [301]

Since 1991 the Bilderberger chairman has been Lord Peter Carrington, former British Foreign Secretary, whose job descriptions have also included Secretary General of NATO, President of the Royal Institute of International Affairs and co-founder of Kissinger Associates.  Carrington is also on the board of Hollinger Corporation, which was chaired by Jerusalem Post and London Daily Telegraph owner Conrad Black, who runs his Zionist empire from Toronto.  In December 2003, CNBC reported that US regulators had launched an investigation into improprieties at Hollinger involving a $32 million non-competition deal. Black was later convicted of fraud.

The Bilderbergers meet once a year at plush resorts. Their activities are shrouded in secrecy.  The Spotlight reported in May 1989 that the Bilderbergers had voted at their La Toja Island, Spain meeting to remove British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher due to her resistance to European integration.  Thatcher was indeed dispensed of shortly in favor of the more compliant John Major, now an adviser at Carlyle Group.

A unified Europe is a major step down the road to Illuminati global dictatorship.  The Bilderbergers were the key force it making sure unification occurred.  George McGhee, former US Ambassador to Germany and himself a Bilderberger, admitted, “The Treaty of Rome, which brought the Common Market into being, was nurtured at Bilderberg meetings”.  In 1996 Bilderberger Jack Sheinkman of Amalgamated Bank stated, “The idea of a common currency was discussed (by the Bilderbergers) several years back before it became policy”. [302]  Prince Bernhard himself articulated best the Bilderberger agenda when he said, “It is difficult to reeducate the people who have been brought up on nationalism to the idea of relinquishing part of their sovereignty to a supranational body.”

The corporate media has been remiss to report on the activities of the group but Jim McBeth of The Scotsman got a glimpse of the May 1998 Bilderberg meeting at the exquisite Turnberry Hotel near Glasgow.  Under the headline “Whole World in their Hands”, McBeth commented glibly of the gathering, “Anyone approaching the hotel who did not have a stake in controlling the planet was turned back”.

There is much we don’t know about the Bilderbergers and their Four Horsemen cash cows.  In 1972 when Senator Lee Metcalf (D-MT), who was heading an investigation into monopolistic practices in the oil industry, tried to get a list RD/Shell’s top 30 stockholders, of which Prince Bernhard is certainly one, the company refused to give him the information. [303]  As 2000 Green Party US Presidential candidate Ralph Nader once said in testimony before the US Senate, “We know more in public about the CIA and NSA than is known about the internal workings of Standard Oil.”

What we do know is that through a combination of joint ventures, tightly-held technological secrets, vertical and horizontal integration, manipulation of production sites, cheap labor, interlocking bank directorates and outright collusion; the same Four Horsemen which rode to power on the crest of the oil boom of the late 19th century are now even more firmly in control of an increasingly oil-dependent world economy than they were 100 years ago.  And the same old money families are still riding high in the saddle.

One response to “The Bilderbergers

  1. Dmitry Orlov has an interesting interview concerning his new book, Shrinking the Technosphere, where he links big oil to the shaping of society for purposes of dependency on their products. Find it at cluborlov.com , Interview with Ecotopia.
