Google – People Who Run the World Meeting this Weekend?
I see Google is at this meeting too. I’ve already read that Europe is trying to get the license for the Internet and are fighting for it rather furiously. I did not know the Internet had a license that could expire to begin with.
This OpenID is also a real concern. One password per se that you can use to access everything. Then one day you wont be able access anything. Right now ‘they’ know everything about us: what we surf, what we write, which ‘Christ’ we follow, where we live. I can see my house on Google Earth.
This openID thingie is controlled by the Gravatar we use so that our avatar can show up all over the Internet no matter where we go.
The Bilderberg group, the topic of many conspiracy theories, is now meeting behind closed doors in Greece:
From today until May 17, approximately 150 of the most influential members of the world’s elite will be meeting behind closed doors at a hotel in Greece. They are called the Bilderberg Group or the “Bilderbergers,” and you have probably never heard of them.
The group, co-founded by Prince Bernard of the Netherlands, has been meeting in secret every year since 1954. This year, says the British broadsheet The Times, they are meeting at the Nafsika Astir Palace in Vouliagmeni.
The individuals at the meeting come from such power houses as Google and the Wall Street Journal, the U.S. Senate and European royalty. Governments, the banking industry, big oil, media and even the world of academia are amongst the Bilderberg ranks.
Those reportedly in attendance at last year’s conference in Virginia include former U.S. senator Tom Daschle; Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner and his predecessor Henry M. Paulson; former U.S. secretaries of state Henry Kissinger and Condoleezza Rice; Microsoft executive Craig Mundie; senior Wall Street Journal editor Paul Gigot; World Bank President Robert Zoellick and Google CEO Eric Schmidt.
There is no official list of who’s who in Bilderberg and there are no press conferences about the meetings. This is because the group operates under the “Chatham House Rule,” and no details of what goes on inside are released to the press.
This secrecy has led to many claims that the Bilderberg Group are the world’s real “kingmakers,” and, some even suggest, behind the global financial crisis.
There are also rumors concerning Bilderberg’s 2008 conference in Virginia, claiming that the recent U.S. presidential election was decided upon in a secret meeting between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, courtesy of Bilderberg.
Those involved in Bilderberg reject such claims outright, arguing that the forum offers a chance for world leaders to discuss international affairs openly and honestly.
Former British cabinet minister, Lord Denis Healey, who was one of the founders of the group, branded assumptions of world domination as “crap!” and said that the group’s aims were much purer.
In an interview to journalist Jon Ronson of the Guardian, Healey said: “Those of us in Bilderberg felt we couldn’t go on forever fighting one another for nothing and killing people and rendering millions homeless. So we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing.”
Veteran Bilderberg-watcher Daniel Estulin says that the big topic on the agenda for this year is the global depression.
Estulin quotes sources connected to the group as saying that the group is looking at two options, “either a prolonged, agonizing depression that dooms the world to decades of stagnation, decline, and poverty… or an intense-but-shorter depression that paves the way for a new sustainable economic world order, with less sovereignty but more efficiency.”
As the BBC’s Jonathan Duffy noted in 2004, the air of mystery has fueled the increasingly popular conspiracy theory that the Bilderberg meetings are where decisions affecting the entire world are made.
“No reporters are invited in and while confidential minutes of meetings are taken, names are not noted,” Duffy wrote. “In the void created by such aloofness, an extraordinary conspiracy theory has grown up around the group that alleges the fate of the world is largely decided by Bilderberg.”
Recently, mainstream press coverage of the Bilderberg meeting has grown, largely due to the internet. This year’s conference may have been covered by British broadsheets, but don’t expect to see any coverage from U.S. news outlets such as The Wall Street Journal or the Washington Post – they will most likely be at the conference.
This is an almost spooky topic. Spooky in the sense that there are those with enough collective power to dismantle the world for their personal gain & dominance. What I find even more fascinating is how these Bilderberg meetings are openly exposed now & yet it still so brashly goes on ….
Your first 3 short paragraph intro to this article is telling … a couple of years ago, Google was questioned about its alignment with the NSA – arguably THE most powerful black op, quasi government group in America (makes the CIA look like school children). Is our privacy at risk? No question, yes & is pretty much gone due to our dependence to technology. Google mail constantly asks me for my phone number as a “privacy” & “security” measure – yea, right.
BTW, the NSA is moving right along with its personal data gathering center & bet the Bilderbergs have a hand in some if not the majority of the financing as they would benefit huge –
I saw a TV interview with Denis Healey being asked about the Bilderberg meetings. He actually laughed at the idea of anything sinister going on in them. Healey, being a politician and therefore a professional liar, is not to be believed on that point as well other statements of his.
The fact that the Biderberg Groups always meet in secret speaks volumes. The Masons do so all the time as do the Jesuit & Opus Dei cabals, the Knights Templar, the Gestapo, and KGB among many other secret societies. Secret societies are secret because they have something to hide and it is always something that’s to be hidden from the masses.
Interestingly, all the above secret societies I’ve mentioned above have all been involved (except perhaps for the KGB) in some way with a one world goverment or New World Order. That includes the Bilderbergers.
The people who have been caught on video at their meetings, by investigative journalists like Alex Jones, show this very clearly.
The Beast is to rise from the sea, apparently and the whole word is to ask, “Who is like unto the Beast and who can make war with him?” In other words, the Beast power will be powerful indeed. Isn’t it interesting that the Bilderbergers are contected with the most powerful people in the world? Co-incidence? I don’t think so.
