Members of the world’s largest and most elite secret society recently descended on the town of St. Moritz, Switzerland, and the Swiss are not at all pleased. The Bilderberg group, who have convened quietly for fifty years, suddenly found themselves the center of media and International attention when protestors took to the street with accusations concerning their yearly conferences.
Bilderberg, named after the Dutch hotel where members first met in 1954, brings together some of the most influential figures on Earth. More than 120 top-level officials in government, banking, media, finance, business, think-tanks, armed forces, and even European royalty attend the confab every year. According to James P. Tucker, Jr., of American Free Press, Bilderberg is the most exclusive and secretive club in the world. To be admitted, you have to own a multinational bank, a multinational corporation or a country.
The Bilderberg gathering has, in the past, been so secret, their functions have been left to the conspiracy theorists. You may attend by invitation only. The press invited to attend a conference must agree to publish only what has been cleared by the group. Any journalist who violates this confidence is not invited back. Most of the Bilderberg conferences passed unnoticed, with no press coverage at all. This year was different. Perhaps because of the global economic slump, perhaps because of a surge in online independent press, but the Bilderberg summit did not go quietly into the night.
According to The New American, hundreds of protesters and critics from all across the political spectrum descended on St. Moritz to lambaste the elite attendees. They held up anti-Bilderberg signs and blasted their opposition through bull horns around the perimeter of the luxury Suvretta House hotel throughout the whole four-day gathering.
On the first day of the conference, along with a bogus “bomb” scare, a giant wall of curtains was erected around the edge of the Bilderberg compound. Presumably it was designed to keep protesters from looking in and conference attendees from being forced to see the growing crowd outside.
Several lower-ranking members of the political class made a fuss about the event as well. Italian member of the European Parliament Mario Borghezio, for example, attempted to force his way into the conference on the first day. He was reportedly detained and roughed up by police, prompting the Italian embassy in Switzerland to demand answers.
Prominent Swiss politicians were furious about the gathering, too. Center-right Parliamentarian Dominique Baettig of the nation’s largest political party, for example, asked prosecutors to consider arresting attendees such as former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger for war crimes, suggesting that Swiss officials at the event should be charged with treason. Baettig, too, tried unsuccessfully to barge in on the conference in what the Guardian’s Charlie Skelton called a “historic moment.”
The Invisible Economy
The Bilderbergers have often been called “the shadow government”, the scene behind the scene. The “inner circle”, or the Advisory Group, includes Giovanni Agnelli of Italy, Eric Roll of Ipsden from Great Britain, David Rockefeller of the USA and Otto Wolff von Amerongen of Germany. This year’s conference included Alexei Mordashov, the Russian steel magnate, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon.com, Peter R. Orszag of Citigroups Global Markets, Inc., and Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google Inc., along with nearly two hundred other participants.
The official website claims that Bilderberg is a small, flexible, informal and off-the-record international forum in which different viewpoints can be expressed and mutual understanding enhanced. Bilderberg’s only activity is its annual Conference. At the meetings, no resolutions are proposed, no votes taken, and no policy statements issued. Since 1954, fifty-seven conferences have been held. For each meeting, the names of the participants as well as the agenda are made Public and available to the press.
The press is so well informed that the most they could cover concerning the conference, was a description of the various handbags and bad haircuts; that is, apart from the protests. In the intense political atmosphere, it was an awkward moment for Switzerland, which has maintained a position of political neutrality for over four hundred years. With black copters swarming overhead, security guards and cameras stationed at every corner, not even Swiss diplomats and press journalists were allowed into the conference.
Bilderberg members like it that way. Said David Rockefeller, “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 their 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 subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
But if we know absolutely nothing about what goes on in the gatherings of the richest and most powerful people in the world, aren’t we indulging in conspiracy theories? Investigative journalist, and author of the book, The True Story of the Bilderberg Group, Daniel Estulin, says no.
“Over almost 20 years of research I’ve found out that what today is called the Bilderberg group already existed over eight hundred years ago,” Estulin told RT correspondents.. “Back then they were called the Venetian Black Nobility. Bilderberg is the creation of the Sinarchy movement, who are very potentially founders and financiers of Hitler. As Sinarchy International they, in turn, were founded by the Freemason esoteric secret society back in the 1770s, as a kind of a counter attack on the principles upon which the United States of America was built.”
“A lot of people speak of Bilderberg as a domain of conspiracy theories, and of course it’s not, it’s a historical fact,” Estulin stated. “A lot of people believe that Bilderberg is a one-world government or creating the new world order, especially people point to a speech made by George W. Bush back in the 1990s about the creation of a one world government. It’s actually not about that at all. It’s a meeting of people who represent a particular ideology. That ideology is of money.”
“So the idea is not to create a one world government, rather the creation of a one world company, limited to where financial concerns are far more powerful than any government on Earth,” the journalist added.
Bilderberg founding member and, for 30 years, a steering committee member, Denis Healey said, “To say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair. 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.”
Leaders of the Bilderberg Club argue that discretion is necessary to allow participants in the debates to speak freely without being on the record or reported publicly. Wikipedia recently deleted the Bilderberg attendees list, citing it to be possibly defamatory towards living persons.
At the website, “Jeremiah Project”, the author asks, “Why are the Davos World Economic Forum and G8 meetings carried in every newspaper, given front page coverage, with thousands of journalists in attendance, while no one covers Bilderberg Club meetings even though they are annually attended by Presidents of the International Monetary Fund, The World Bank, Federal Reserve, chairmen of 100 most powerful corporations in the world such as DaimlerChrysler, Coca Cola, British Petroleum, Chase Manhattan Bank, American Express, Goldman Sachs, Microsoft, Vice Presidents of the United States, Directors of the CIA and the FBI, General Secretaries of NATO, American Senators and members of Congress, European Prime Ministers and leaders of opposition parties, top editors and CEOs of the leading newspapers in the world.”
The One World Company
For over fifty years, the world’s wealthiest, most powerful and elite, have been meeting in secret, designing in secret for their own economic security, and quite possibly playing the world’s population like puppets. Their activities passed by unnoticed during the years of relative prosperity and comfort. The world is no longer comfortable. The recession, which began as a real estate bust, quickly became a global depression when the middle class ran out of buying power. Instead of accepting the losses due to over-extended lending, high interest rates and inflated values, the banks petitioned for and received a bail-out to continue their reckless policies. This bail-out was acquired by printing money with no real assets behind it except the promises that the consumer, who has already consumed more than affordable, will be able to buy the goods and services offered and pay them off sometime in the future. The value placed on the consumer has been over-extended. Monetary figures have become meaningless. A trillion dollars represents the same degree of debt accumulated just a few years by a billion dollars. A millionaire no longer represents a successful businessman; just someone who has managed to retain an upper middle-class status.
In Europe; the euro-dollar was meant to safe-guard against inflation. Their system of uniform currency intended to ease the difficulties with trade transactions and maintain support for the regional assets and resources within the European Union. When the dollar first weakened, the Euro dollar stayed strong. Countries whose foundations had been shaken by national bankruptcy, such as Iceland and Russia, petitioned for, but failed to gain acceptance into the European Union. However, for some countries, their position within the European Union has not saved them from bankruptcy. Their debt was to the International Monetary Funds, which is still governed primarily in dollars. The weakened millions have loomed into billions and the billions into trillions.
While some members of the seventeen nation European Union consider giving Greece another bail-out as its economy continues to flounder in bankruptcy, others are considering letting go of Greece in order to keep the value of the Euro-dollar strong. Some believe that including Ireland as a dysfunctional family member worth dumping is a good idea. The Euro dollar struggles, just a little ahead of the dollar, with investors hedging their bets on which currency is the most like to stay afloat. Meanwhile, China sits on the sidelines as the major lender in the world market, casually tossing out remarks, like using gold as the medium exchange for currency. China also had members arrive for the Bildergroup conference; Fu, Ying, Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs and Huang, Yiping, Professor of Economics, China Center for Economic Research, Peking University.
The 2011 Billionaires List breaks two records: total number of listees (1,210) and combined wealth ($4.5 trillion). This horde surpasses the gross domestic product of Germany, one of only six nations to have fewer billionaires this year. BRICs led the way: Brazil, Russia, India and China produced 108 of the 214 new names. These four nations are home to one in four members, up from one in ten five years ago. Before this year only the U.S. had ever produced more than 100 billionaires. China now has 115 and Russia 101. War-torn Mexico added Carlos Slim Helu, whose fortune has increased by $20.5 billion, more than any other billionaire. The telecom mogul, who gets 62% of his fortune from America Movil ( AMX – news – people ), is now worth $74 billion and has pulled far ahead of his two closest rivals. Bill Gates, No. 2, and Warren Buffett, No. 3, both added a more modest $3 billion to their piles and are now worth $56 billion and $50 billion, respectively. Gates, who now gets 70% of his fortune from investments outside of Microsoft ( MSFT – news – people ), has actually been investing in the Mexican stock market and has holdings in Mexican Coke bottler Femsa and Grupo Televisa ( TV – news – people ).
Using only pure logic and reason, one can certainly understand why the Bilderberg group desire secrecy. Their concerns are for ways to maintain their own income, to walk away from economic disasters unscathed. There’s nothing personal attached to it; just business. However, people take it personally when they feel they have been deceived, when their own business has been manipulated to fall because the value placed on their assets has decreased through the exchange rate of their currency. They take it personally when they invest in a market that only a few actually control, a stock market with ups and downs surprising only to the uninvited and uninitiated into the Bilderberg group. They take it personally when their entire country falls through an unpaid debt that cannot be paid back because the distribution of the wealth lies only in the hands of a few who have no intention of distributing it, but intend to accumulate more buying and spending power on paper. The paper accumulates. The billions escalate into trillions and millions are nothing more than an upper middle class wage.
Revolutions have been fought for less. In every corner of the globe, civil riots and protests are taking place; not over democratic freedom; not for new roads, hospitals and schools, but for food and shelter. Their governments have failed them because the moratorium of International law has failed to protect them. We are not, nor should we become, a One World Order, assimilating all countries, cultures and ethnic backgrounds into one ideal. It is a mistake to become a One World Company, governed by those who successfully made it to billionaire status. Our individual value is not in the paper currency of a monopoly game. Our goods, our services, our natural and human resources should be equitable, regardless of our economic situation. We’ve been gambled with and the game is rigged. The only winners are 1,200 billionaires and two hundred members of the Bilderberg conference.
The Bilderberg Club: a secret society
of the richest and most influential people
conspiring to achieve a world government
The November-December, 2005 issue of the Kingston Eye Opener (Box 3514, Kingston, ON, Canada, K7L 5J9) published an interview of editor Geoff Matthews with Daniel Estulin, Communications Training Specialist, who wrote a book on the Bilderbergers:
Daniel, could you please define Bilderberg for our readers.
Bilderberg is not a person, but an idea. It is an idea centred on the perception of man as intrinsically evil. Humanity cannot gain its freedom from synarchism unless it defeats the idealism that it represents. It is the idea that creates the policies of state which rip up the tallest constitutions and drag humanity into war from the highest position of power. That is why it must be acknowledged that World War II has not been won in real terms. A single man and his clique had been brought down in this war at a cost of a hundred million lives lost, but the idea behind them had not been defeated. The idea has now come to roost in America, and has infested its platform of business, its economy, its institutions for learning, and finally, its highest position of government.
The 2006 meeting of the Bilderbegers took place June 8-10 at the Brookstreet Hotel, in Ottawa, Canada. Ottawa police officers were standing guard outside a dozen metal gates that served as security checkpoints a half kilometre from the hotel. But to approach the hotel property, even uniformed officers had to show their credentials to the half -dozen black-suited men working for a private security firm hired by the Bilderbergers.
Some of this year's attendees were pictured on the front page of the Ottawa Citizen: from left to right, first row: David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission and former chairman of the Chase Manhattan Bank; Frank McKenna, former Premier of New Brunswick and ex-ambassador to the U.S.; Gordon Nixon, President and CEO of the Royal Bank of Canada; second row: James Wolfensohn, former president of the World Bank; Richard Perle, assistant secretary of defence to U.S. President Reagan and advisor of present President Bush; Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands
Who was the most prominent individual involved with the founding of the Bilderbergers?
Without a doubt, Joseph Retinger, a 33rd degree mason. He was the political aide to General Sikorski, and served for the London-based Polish government-in-exile. In addition, at the age of 58, he parachuted into German-occupied territory outside Warsaw for some sabotage missions.
Due to his high-profile career, in the 1950s he was able to create contacts with numerous high-ranking military officials and political leaders. His main aim was to unite the world in peace. His peace dividend was to be under the control of supranational, powerful organisations. He believed that such organisations would be immune from short-term ideological conflicts erupting between governments. To Retinger, it was insignificant what dominated the economic ideology of a country. He believed these differences could be brought into line by powerful multinational organisations dictating and applying powerful economic and military policies, thereby creating a union and a bond between the nations.
Oh really!? I thought that it was Prince Bernhard of Holland who actually founded the secret Club.
Bernhard was a poster boy. A pretty face and a facade. In 1952, Retinger approached Bernhard with a proposal for a secret conference to involve the NATO leaders in an open and frank discussion on international affairs behind closed doors. Prince Bernhard, at the time, was an important figure in the oil industry and held a major position in Royal Dutch Petroleum (Shell Oil), as well as Société Générale de Belgique — a powerful global corporation.
In which ways (people, institutions, etc.) are the decisions of the Club “networked” and forwarded in the level of international organizations, the media, banks, states and governments in a way that they can be implemented?
You know, everywhere you look — government, big business, and any other institution seeking to exercise power — the key is secrecy. Meetings such as those of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the G-8, World Trade Organisation, World Economic Forum, Central Banks, the European Union Council of Ministers and the EU Commission, EU summits, government cabinet meetings, numerous think tanks, etc., are always conducted behind closed doors. The only possible reason for this is that they don't want you and me to know what they are really up to. That well worn excuse for keeping things under wraps — “it is not in the public interest” really means that it is not in the interest of the powers that be that the public should know.
However there is, in addition, a network of private forums and meetings that take place where the secrecy principle extends to the forums and meetings themselves — by and large, we don't even know that they are taking place, let alone what is being planned and discussed.
There's the World Economic Forum at Davos in January/February, the Bilderberg and G8 meetings in June/July, and the IMF/World Bank annual conference in September. A kind of international consensus emerges and is carried over from one meeting to the next. But no one's really leading it. This consensus becomes the background for G8 economic communiqués; it becomes what informs the IMF when it imposes an adjustment programme on Argentina; and it becomes what the US President proposes to Congress.
With what other international centres of power/authority does the Club cooperate and in what aspect?
Bilderberg controls the IMF, the World Bank, the UN, all the European Central Banks. Every prominent European commissioner has at one time or another attended a Bilderberger meeting. Every NATO general secretary is a Bilderberger. You see what we are up against.
Are there any other centres of power/authority that are considered opposite/rival to the Club? If yes, which are they and what do they stand for?
Bilderberg, in fact, is a foreign policy arm of an all-powerful and completely unknown group called “The Committee of 300” whose ancestors were the British East Indian Tea Company, whose main line of work didn't have anything to do with selling tea but rather with moving drugs.
In fact, the entire world drug trade is controlled by the most powerful man and a few women in the world. All of them belong to the Committee of 300. I have spoken on several occasions with deep cover intelligence officers, both in Europe and the US, and all of them have given me a rough estimate of annual drug profit margins between US $500-$700 billion. Most of this dirty money is recycled through all the major stock markets, and then pocketed as a legitimate profit.
Who invites the people that attend the gatherings of the Bilderberg, and what criteria do the guests have to fulfil in order to be invited?
Bilderberg, from its inception, has been administered by a small nucleus of persons, appointed since 1954 by a committee of the wise men, which is made up of a permanent chair, an American chair, European and an American secretary and treasurer. The annual invitations are only sent out to important and respected people who, through their special knowledge, personal contacts and influence in national and international circles, can amplify the objectives and resources of the Bilderberg Group.
Nobody can buy their way into a Bilderberg meeting, although many corporations have tried. The steering committee decides who to invite — what the Guardian newspaper of London aptly calls a “Bilderberg person”, that hasn't changed in 50 years of secret meetings — a Fabian Socialist (Translation: Fabianism believes in what it describes as “the democratic control of society in all its activities.” The key word is control of the individual. This as being best achieved through global government, a goal it shares with Communism) and a One World Order enthusiast.
What means do they use in order to keep their activity silent and away from the media?
Big time media is part of the world elite and with the slyness of a slave, they don't need to be told by the Bilderbergers to keep the meeting secret. They do it voluntarily. The Washington Post, The New York Times, Grupo Prisa in Spain, Le Monde, The Economist, the Wall Street Journal, Toronto Star, the National Post to name just a few, fully realize the advantages of cooperating with the Bilderbergers.
They also know what will happen if they are to “betray” the most secret of secret societies. Newspapers live and die by the advertising they take in. Do you know how simple it is for Rockefeller, the Prime Minister of Canada, Etienne Davingnon, and other influential Bilderbergers to pick up the phone and tell GE, Siemens, Mercedes, Novartis, etc., to stop advertising in such and such media?
Actually, as all the biggest and the most powerful corporations in the world belong to the Bilderbergers, they police themselves. For those not entirely convinced what may happen to them, we have a case of Richard Nixon being destroyed in the false Watergate crisis for the entire world to see, as I explain in my new best seller on the Bilderbergers.
Or the case of Argentina being destroyed, again, for the whole world to see by the New World Order in the Falkland's War because Argentina was willing to sell nuclear power, the cleanest, cheapest, and best source of energy to Mexico against the wishes of the Global Masters. So, Kissinger gave the order to attack.
If the President of the US can be put out of business, or an independent nation be subjugated, what chance, I ask you, does a newspaper have against the all-powerful Bilderbergers? So, the big-time media follows every direction and command without as much as a whimper.
What would you consider to be the more “curious coincidences” for some of Bilderberger recruits?
The most dramatic example of a “useful recruit” was the obscure governor of Arkansas, Bill Clinton, who attended his first Bilderberg meeting at Baden Baden, Germany, in 1991. There, Clinton was told what NAFFA (North American Free Trade Agreement) is by David Rockefeller, and that he was to support it. The next year, he was elected President. Tony Blair attended a Bilderberg meeting in 1993, became party leader in July 1994, and became Prime Minister in May 1997. John Edwards was invited to a Bilderberg meeting in 2004, several weeks later to be “chosen” John Kerry's Vice Presidential candidate. The fact that Edwards wasn't invited back this year suggests to me that his political career is over by the way he was discarded as an old shoe by the Bilderbergers.
What Canadians have participated in previous Bilderberg meetings?
There have been many over the years; this is just a partial list: Donald S. MacDonald, ex-Finance Minister; Conrad Black, Ralph Klein, Israel Asper of the CanWestCapital Group; Lloyd Axworthy, Isabel-Bassett, Parl. Assistant Finance Minister of Ontario; Jean Chretien, Marshall A. Cohen of Olympia & York; Stephane Dion, A.L. Flood, Chairman, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce; Louise Frechette, Deputy Secretary-General, United Nations; David Frum from the National Post; Peter C. Godsoe, Chairman and CEO, Bank of Nova Scotia; Allan E. Gotlieb, former Ambassador to the US; Michael Harris; Donald J. Johnston, Secretary-General, OECD; Preston Manning; Paul Martin; Stephen Harper; etc.
What are some of the Bilderberger objectives?
Amongst some of their more ambitious plans are the creation of a One World Government with a single globalized marketplace, policed by a world army; a single global currency financially regulated by a world bank; a universal church as an outlet to channel mankind's inherent religious belief in the direction desired by the New World Order.
All other religions of the world will be destroyed; empowering international bodies to completely destroy all national identity through subversion from within. Only universal values will be allowed to flourish in the future; creation of “the post-industrial zero-growth society” (Translation: Zero growth is necessary to destroy vestiges of prosperity and be able to divide the society into owners and slaves. When there is prosperity, there is progress, which makes repression a lot harder to execute) which is meant to bring an end to all industrialization and the production of nuclear generated electric power (except for the computer and service industries.)
The remaining Canadian and American industries will be exported to poor countries such as Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Nicaragua, etc., where slave labor is cheap. One of the principal objectives for NAFTA will then be realized; empowering the United Nations until it becomes a demure, as well as a de facto, world government. Advancing this goal by creating a direct UN tax on “world citizens,” expanding NAFTA throughout the Western Hemisphere as a prelude to creating an “American Union” similar to the European Union; establishing NATO as the UN's world army.
What are some of Bilderberger achievements?
Bilderberg proposed and decided to establish formal relations with China before Nixon's administation made it publicly known policy. At a meeting in Saltsjöbaden, Sweden, in 1973, Bilderbergers agreed to increase the price of oil to $12 a barrel, a 350% jump, in order to create economic chaos in the United States and Western Europe, as part of the “softening up” policy.
In 1983, Bilderbergers got a secret promise out of the then “ultraconservative” President Ronald Reagan to transfer $50 billion of American taxpayers' money to the Third World and communist countries through its favourite conduits, the IMF and the World Bank, in order to pay the interest the Bilderbergers owed on their loans to the Western banks. That pledge was more than kept and became known as the Brady Plan.
The Bilderberg-orchestrated decision of getting rid of Margaret Thatcher as British Prime Minister, because she opposed the wilful hand-over of British sovereignty to the European Super State designed by the Bilderbergers. And incredulously, we all watched as her own party sold her out in favour of the Bilderberg poodle — John Major.
In 1985, Bilderbergers were ordered to give full support to the Strategic Defence Initiative (Star Wars), long before it became the official policy of a US government, grounding it on the premise that it would grant unlimited riches to the Masters of the Universe.
At their 1990 meeting at Glen Cove, Long Island, in New York, they decided that taxes had to be raised to pay more towards the debt owed to the International Bankers. Bilderberg ordered President [George] Bush Sr. to increase taxes in 1990, and watched him sign off of the tax-hiking “budget agreement” that lost him the election.
The multimillion dollar sale of Ontario Hydro, whose owner at the time was the Canadian Government, was discussed for the first time at the Bilderberg meeting in King City, Toronto, Canada, in 1996. Shortly after, Ontario Hydro was broken up into five independent companies and privatised.
Leaked reports from the 2002 meeting stated that the war in Iraq had been delayed until March 2003 at a time when every newspaper im the world was expecting the attack to be launched in the summer of 2002.
Splintering of Canada
Splintering of Canada. This theme was originally scheduled for discussion in 1997, but unexpected Bilderberg media coverage in the Toronto Star, Canada's leading daily during the 1996 meeting in King City, forced the globalists to postpone their plan to 2007.
Really!!! I think our readers would love to hear the details of the plan to destroy Canada!
The long and short of it is that the Bilderbergers planned the destruction of Canada through the Quebec referendum which they themselves organised, which also ties into a billion dollar scheme they concocted to steal Canada's water supply through the Grand Canal project. Of course, to destroy Canada, these vile people needed NAFTA and GATT as a precursor to US-Canadian continental union by 2007. That's the intended result. However, as you well know, not every plan, no matter how brilliantly set up, can be executed to perfection.
Do you remember Quebec's supposedly “authentic” independence drive in 1995? It was all a hoax. Through my intelligence sources, I discovered that Quebec was to separate from Canada abruptly via a Unilateral Declaration of Independence, orchestrated by the Rockefeller-controlled Canadian politicians. Most of the key political figures on both sides, though apparently in “opposition” to each other, are connected to David Rockefeller such as Brian Mulroney, ex Prime Minister; Lucien Bouchard, separatist PQ leader brought into politics by Brian Mulroney; Preston Manning also controlled by the Rockefeller-Bilderberg combines; Jean Chretien, ex-Prime Minister, liberal party, controlled by David Rockefeller.)
Let me give you an example:
John Rae was a leading strategist for former Prime Minister Chretien's election campaign. He was also an Executive Vice-President of Power Corp. and Paul Desmarais' right-hand man.
His brother is Bob Rae, ex-NDP Premier of Ontario (who is now running for the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada), who appointed Maurice Strong to the chairmanship of Ontario Hydro, which he proceeded to dramatically cut in both skilled human resources amd generating capacity (to provide a future need for power from James Bay/Grand Canal.)
Paul Martin, former Canada's Prime Minister, rose through the ranks at Power Corp., mentored by Paul Desmarais. He also attended the 1996 meeting of the-Bilderberg Group where the dismantlement of Ontario Hydro is hotly debated.
Jean Chretien's daughter, France, is married to Andre Desmarais, son of Paul Desmarais, chairman of Power Corporation. Chretien's “advisor, counsellor and strategist” for the past 30 years has been Mitchell Sharp, who brought Chretien into politics when he was Finance Minister. Sharp has been, since 1981, Vice-Chairman for North America of David Rockefeller's Trilateral Commission. Chretien, like so many lackeys, attended the 1996 meeting of the Bilderberg Group in King City, Toronto.
However, there is much more.
Daniel Johnson, former leader of the Quebec Liberal party and Quebec Premier in 1994, also rose through the ranks of Power Corp.
Brian Mulroney needs no introduction. He is one of the most hated Prime Ministers in Canada's history. He was also a lawyer and a lobbyist for Power Corporation and a member of the board of Archer-Daniels-Midland, a Rockefeller-owned conglomerate, which was headed by Dwayne Andreas who, like Rockefeller himself, is also a member of the Bilderberg Group.
Finally, you have Mike Harris, former Premier of Ontario, close friend of George Bush and Paul Martin. Harris, like his colleague Ralph Klein of Alberta, is also a Bilderberger.
So, the former federal Conservative Party (via Mulroney), the Liberal Party (via Chretien) and the NDP (via Rae) are all tightly connected to... Paul Desmarais and Power Corp. And we have the Prime Minister, the Finance Minister, and the Prime Minister's key aide all tightly connected to... Paul Desmarais and Power Corp.
Power Corp. co-chief executives Andre Desmarais, left, and Paul Desmarais Jr., right, leave with their father, Paul Desmarais Sr., after the company's annual meeting in Montreal Thursday, May 11, 2006. Paul Desmarais Sr. was obviously one of the attendees at this year's Bilderberger meeting.
If you have ever wondered why the same experts and politicians, though apparently representing opposing ideologies, always seem to appear on news, political debates, and current event programs, all pushing the same line, now you have the answer.
Who would benefit from Quebec's separation?
The answer is the Bilderberg Group. The ultimate outcome was a planned Continental Union of the U.S. and Canada by the early 21st century, in which both would be regionalized. This would necessitate a new Constitution for the resulting United States of North America. A fundamental piece of this jigsaw puzzle was a little known “Grand Canal” water-transfer project, a scheme estimated to cost between $80 billion and $130 billion.
Never heard of the continent-wide “Grand Canal” project? GRAND being an acronym for Great Recycling and Northern Development — envisages a dike across James Bay and the creation of a new fresh-water lake through the impoundment of rivers that now empty into the bay. This fresh water would then be pumped back to the Great Lakes basin and beyond. (See the article “The planned destruction of Canada” in the March-April, 2002 issue of Michael.)
Not surprising — the Bilderbergers, the Canadian Government, and the media whores such as Conrad Black and Robert S. Prichard, president of Torstar Media Group (Toronto Star) and a 2005 Bilderberg attendee, aren't too keen to publicize it!
When I found out about Rockefeller financing every Canadian politician, I went back and re-read everything I could get my hands on regarding NAFTA. There is a lot of talk in NAFTA about “free flowing water being free.” It is obvious, isn't it! Then, why is it in the document? Because when you put up dikes, you can suddenly charge for the water.
Think of money. If you had your choice, if you could pull a genie out of a bottle, and the genie could grant three wishes, what would your three wishes be? Remember your goal is to make the most money possible? Number one, give me control over the sun. Number two, give me control over the air. Number three, give me control over water. Now, leaving our little genie aside, we know we cannot control the sun, nor can we control the air, but we can control water. On the scale of things that are required for human life, it is the most important element that can be controlled.
The Bilderbergers thought they could get away with another media blackout. Not to be. When Canadian media got wind of it, it quickly spread like wildfire. A trickle turned into a torrential downpour, and Canadians were on to them. It is one thing not to report the news, quite another to be an accomplice in the willful destruction of your own country. On record, that was their worst defeat ever.
