    Default Bilderberg Conference (2012) News & Updates

    Alex Jones Banned From Bilderberg Hotel, Calls For Press Mob

    Media not welcome at site of power brokers’ confab

    Tuesday, May 29, 2012

    Alex Jones has been banned from the Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles hotel in Chantilly, Virginia today two days before the start of the 2012 Bilderberg conference.



    Contacted by Bryan Stolz, Director of Hotel Operations at Marriott International, Jones was told that his room booking was cancelled and that he and his crew would be banned from entering the premises of the hotel.

    When Jones asked Stolz if he could come for a hamburger at the hotel’s restaurant on Friday, Stolz laughed and said “yeah, if you can get in.”

    Stolz made it clear Jones wasn’t welcome and offered to put him up in a different hotel.

    Alex Jones is now calling for a peaceful “press mob” to surround the Westfields Marriott from the start of the confab on Thursday in order to do what the mainstream media habitually fails to accomplish – covering a meeting of 120 of the most powerful people on the planet.

    Jones is also calling for everyone to have breakfast at the Westfields Marriott on Thursday morning before the hotel is emptied in readiness for the arrival of Bilderberg members.

    As we reported yesterday, Bilderberg is fuming over the significant amount of press coverage they have received before the conference has even started, in addition to the large numbers of protesters expected to arrive later this week.

    This is not the first time Jones and his crew have been treated with similar disdain at the behest of the Bilderberg Group. Flying in to cover the 2006 meeting in Ottawa, Jones and his colleagues were detained by immigration authorities in Canada for 15 hours during which they were threatened with 10 years in jail.

    Article of Mark Dice about Bilderberg Group meeting:

    "Dice is a conservative libertarian and the author of several books
    about conspiracies and secret societies, including The Illuminati: Facts and Fiction,
    which analyzes the various conspiracy theories surrounding elite secret societies and
    private organizations such as the Bilderberg Group, the Federal Reserve and Bohemian
    Grove. He has been featured in various conspiracy television shows, documentary films
    and is a frequent guest on conspiracy talk radio shows."


    ..

    “When you look at the independent journalists and bloggers
    who have photographed and videotaped the attendees at
    the Bilderberg Group, it’s quite shocking that the major news
    networks have never even touched the issue,” Dice said.

    ..

    “How could this not be news?” Dice continued. “How is it that,
    year after year, 120 of the world’s most powerful men meet in
    secret for three days, and yet there isn’t a word of it mentioned
    in the American media?”

    ..

    Documents show that in 2008, they received $645,000 in
    contributions, with money coming from Goldman Sachs,
    The Washington Post, Microsoft, Henry Kissinger,
    David Rockefeller and others. Dice has published the
    records from 2007 to 2010 on his website, www.markdice.com.

    A day before the official kick off of the Bilderberg conference Alex Jones and crew were officially kicked out of the Westfields Marriott Hotel because they are 'renovating'.
    Infowars has confirmed from multiple sources that the Bilderberg group will indeed be meeting at the Westfields Marriott in Chantilly Virginia this weekend.
    Considering that a staff member told Alex that all the rooms were occupied just a day before, it obviously confirms without a doubt that Westfields Marriott is hosting the top criminal elite of the planet this weekend.



    An exclusive interview with legendary Bilderberg sleuth Jim Tucker who has reported on the secret Bilderberg meetings since 1975. This was recorded during last years Bilderberg conference in Switzerland.

    I'll take a stab at this. The first Bildeberg meeting in 1954 was set up and designed to run the covert underground black op's projects and the underground global economy to support it, and designed to be secret and kept from the masses.

    I mean, why not? If you are going to loot the surface global economy and use those resources to fund nefarious projects, such as stellar craft, off world bases, underground bases, genetic experiments, human cloning, star-wars weaponry, zero gravity, free energy, celestial technology back-engineering, and self serving hedonistic pleasure, would you want to let the planet in on what you are doing?

    probably not.

    On the Wednesday, May 30th 2012 edition of the Alex Jones Show...

    Alex talks with American Free Press roving editor Mark Anderson and legendary Bilderberg sleuth Jim Tucker who has reported on the internationalist coven since 1975. Charlie Skelton stops by Alex's roaming Bilderberger radio studio, to discuss Charlie's take on Bilderberg meeting 2012. Alex and the Infowars crew provide live coverage of the events unfolding in Chantilly, Virginia, as the Bilderbergers prepare to assemble and demonstrators opposed to the secretive group convene. Alex talks about the unprecedented security for the meeting, the Bilderberger plan to discuss the United Nations' Agenda 21, and other breaking news surrounding the globalist confab.

    Just watched a few minutes of video of that fence they are building. As if they will make any difference. And it isn't like they are afraid or fear for their safety. They just are explaining, in their own particular way, that they rule the planet......so back off.///see///we can even build a fence.....arn't we smart?

    Pathetic really.

    I was thinking about this last night (mediating on it), and I realize that it isn't that they have all the power, it is that humans, in general, are worshiping them (giving themselves to these people). Without people wanting (what they have), none of this would be happening (is all I am saying).

    Hey folks,

    The above picture is a great example that people are not awake as some think.

    Where are the thousands of people from the occupy movement now?

    I mean, if at least a small percentage of the US population was indeed awake, this place would be crowded with thousands of people!

    Cheers,

    Thanks for relaying that shot Christian, priceless!!! At this time four years ago, I didn't know a Bilderberger from a water burger, as Glenn "The False" Beck jokes about concerning the very mention of their meetings, and/or who they are. I don't think an encounter like pictured here was much of a concern for these people even ten years ago, much less twenty. They will never show it publicly, but they are in full panic mode.

    Mold thrives in dark and out of the way places, as it's just not built to sustain exposure to the light of day. This is undoubtably an age of awakening, but for us to dare step foot on untrodden "ground", which is rich with the blood of Troubadours, those cameras need even more to be pointed at the photographers.

    The real crux of the matter, lies in all of us acknowledging our roll in what has brought us to this point, and coming to terms with that.

    Geez, why do you always have to be such a party pooper Raf? lol
    Only kidding, yours was an astute observation and logical assessment to make IMO.
    So then, where are all the ever-increasing numbers of awakened folk, OWS protesters, militia groups etc that we've been hearing so much about when we need them?
    Here we have one of the largest gatherings of criminal cabal/bankster/elitist/mega-corp scumbags on the planet all conveniently convened in one place for them to harrass, heckle, question, and make a MSM spectacle out of... but the efforts we see here (unfortunately) look to be feeble at best!
    Apparently an opportunity like the one presented here barely registers as a blip on the radar of all the so-called "awakened masses" that are supposedly ready to tip the scales in the US and force change for the better in the very near future.
    The fact that this latest Bilderberger meeting has been allowed to go ahead virtually unchallenged and unimpeded is not a very encouraging sign at all if you ask me.
    In fact, I would probably go as far as saying that we still have a lot if work to do before we'll start seeing any real significant change in how this planet, its people, and its resources are being managed.
    I will concede, however, that I do think we as a collective are currently undergoing a consciousness shift that is building momentum (slowly), but I dare say massive planet-wide transformations are not likely to occur (IMO at least) for some time yet.
    I hope I'm wrong about that though, as I would dearly love for something miraculous to happens that speeds up the process for us.

    Bilderberg Releases Official Attendee List And Press Release

    May 31, 2012

    In an uncharacteristic move, the official Bilderberg Meeting website has released a press release and attendee list for 2012 before the conference has officially started. Both are posted below:



    Press Release:

    The 60th Bilderberg Meeting will be held in Chantilly, Virginia, USA from 31 May – 3 June 2012. The Conference will deal mainly with political, economic and societal issues like Transatlantic Relations, Evolution of the Political Landscape in Europe and the US, Austerity and Growth in Developed Economies, Cyber Security, Energy Challenges, the Future of Democracy, Russia, China and the Middle East.

    Approximately 145 participants will attend of whom about two-thirds come from Europe and the balance from North America and other countries. About one-third is from government and politics, and two-thirds are from finance, industry, labor, education, and communications. The meeting is private in order to encourage frank and open discussion.

    Bilderberg takes its name from the hotel in Holland, where the first meeting took place in May 1954. That pioneering meeting grew out of the concern expressed by leading citizens on both sides of the Atlantic that Western Europe and North America were not working together as closely as they should on common problems of critical importance. It was felt that regular, off-the-record discussions would help create a better understanding of the complex forces and major trends affecting Western nations in the difficult post-war period.

    The Cold War has now ended. But in practically all respects there are more, not fewer, common problems – from trade to jobs, from monetary policy to investment, from ecological challenges to the task of promoting international security. It is hard to think of any major issue in either Europe or North America whose unilateral solution would not have repercussions for the other.

    Thus the concept of a European-American forum has not been overtaken by time. The dialogue between these two regions is still – even increasingly – critical.

    What is unique about Bilderberg as a forum is the broad cross-section of leading citizens that are assembled for nearly three days of informal and off-the-record discussion about topics of current concern especially in the fields of foreign affairs and the international economy; the strong feeling among participants that in view of the differing attitudes and experiences of the Western nations, there remains a clear need to further develop an understanding in which these concerns can be accommodated; the privacy of the meetings, which has no purpose other than to allow participants to speak their minds openly and freely.

    In short, 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-nine conferences have been held. The names of the participants are made available to the press. Participants are chosen for their experience, their knowledge, and their standing; all participants attend Bilderberg in a private and not an official capacity.

    Default Re: Bilderberg Conference (2012) News & Updates

    Bilderberg 2012: the technocrats are rising at this year's annual conference


    by Charlie Skelton

    Our man at Bilderberg is back for a fourth year and has touched down in Chantilly for the 2012 gathering. The shadowy elite leaders' conference starts tomorrow, so what's on the agenda?


    It's all change at Bilderberg this year, with a new chairman, new media and Occupy Bilderberg knocking at the gates.


    Dutch Queen Beatrix arrives at the 2010 Bilderberg conference in Sitges, Spain.

    Everything's set. The hotel is being primped and hoovered, the security is arriving, the press is nowhere to be seen, and I just had a really boring crab salad. It's shaping up to be a vintage Bilderberg.

    We were lunching in the Palm Court restaurant of the Westfields Marriott hotel, in Chantilly, Virginia. A few days from now, this hotel will be dripping with billionaires and bankers, industry CEOs and finance ministers, here for the annual Bilderberg summit. "The leaders of the world are coming to our hotel", beams one member of staff. "Are you here for the brunch?"

    We are. Most of the other guests have left by now. The hotel is edging towards lockdown. All that's left is a team of nervy conference organizer who start filming us with their iPhones, several dozen security operatives, me, my wife and a really rather boring 'spook', brunching on an adjacent table.

    He droned on for the full length of a crab salad about his "internal and external drivers", about how "I got a panel of three-star admirals together" to secure a "$30m contract" and how "CACI excels in capture management".

    He talked fondly of CACI International Inc (a giant defense contractor), although more recently he's had "a nice success rate with Booz Allen" (another giant defense contractor). His world was the deathly dull blur between the federal government and private defense corporations. The grim feeding trough of "systems solutions", "security logistics" and "mission assurance". My crab ended just as he was declaring, wisely: "When you leave the navy and you go to a contractor, you say: what's my mission?"

    His mission for the next week or so is to keep the queen of the Netherlands, the chairman of Barclays, and the chairman, vice-chairman and CEO of Shell Oil safe and sound for a three-day conference. The hotel is encircled by the offices of the world's largest arms' manufacturers, 15 minutes up the road from the headquarters of the CIA. I suspect they'll be OK.


    Welcome to Chantilly: a little bit of paradise on earth. Photograph: Charlie Skelton for the Guardian

    The Bilderberg conference was last here in Chantilly, at the exact same godforsaken spot, back in 2008 – which, like 2012, was a US election year, and the moment the current economic woes really started hitting the fan. You might remember, it was the year when then-senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton paid a flying visit to Bilderberg (aka 'an event in northern Virginia'), after shaking off the press pack during the Democratic presidential campaign. AP had the story:

    "Reporters travelling with Obama sensed something might be happening between the pair might when they arrived at Dulles International Airport after an event in northern Virginia and Obama was not aboard the airplane."

    You can watch the hilarious footage of Robert Gibbs, Obama's press secretary, trying (and failing) to placate a furious press corp, who found themselves tricked aboard a flight to Chicago. "Others had a desire to meet with him in a private way," he explains. This is an extraordinary admission from Gibbs – "others" clicked their fingers, and Obama came running, with Hillary in tow.

    Bill Clinton was introduced to the political big league at Bilderberg 1991. The man who introduced him was Vernon Jordan, a lawyer, civil rights activist and currently board member of Lazard investment bank. Speaking last year about the occasion, Jordan recalls:

    "In 1991, I took Bill Clinton to the Bilderberg meetings in Baden Baden, Germany. Bilderberg meetings have been going on since 1954, sort of the North-American / European Alliance."

    Later, after Clinton won the election:

    "The steering committee of Bilderberg came to Washington in January, and I called the president up and I said 'Mr President, they're here' – and he came to the Four Seasons hotel, and the Europeans felt like they owned him because they met him when he was totally unknown."

    That's interesting: a meeting of the Bilderberg steering committee at the Four Seasons in Washington? In January? But according to Bilderberg's official website, "Bilderberg's only activity is its annual conference".

    As for this year's election, rumours are already circulating about Bilderberg and presidential running mates, sparked off by a Washington Post report back in April on the matter of Republican senator Marco Rubio's speech at the Summit of the Americas:

    "[John] Edwards gave a speech in June 2004 at the Bilderberg conference that was widely credited as one reason John Kerry chose him."

    Aside from the US presidency, the big debate of Bilderberg 2012 is likely to be: what in Hades do we do about Greece? The Eurozone is Bilderberg's biggest project, but it's been looking distinctly shaky of late. What's to be done? You can feel the unwillingness of Bilderberg to countenance a 'Grexit' in the stern words of Bilderberg spokesperson, the UK member of parliament for Rushcliffe, Kenneth Clarke. To leave the Euro, says Clarke, would be "disastrous" for the Greeks. "If they get a hopeless lot of rather cranky extremists elected at the next election then they will default on their debt." Clarke took the time to brand eurosceptic British MPs "right-wing nationalists", and euroscepticism itself "irresponsible".

    Clarke's most telling remark is that: "It's going to take a crisis, an absolute crisis, to make Europe's leaders act." This week's Economist magazine agrees: "For the past six decades, steps forward to greater European union have taken place at moments of incipient crisis."

    "A consensus is slowly emerging that, whether a Greek exit is to be averted or weathered, there will have to be a greater level of integration in the euro zone, with tighter constraints on the freedom of national governments."

    This message, that out of the struggle will come a new strength, seems to be the Bilderbergian line. For example, EU Commissioner Joaquin Almunia (whom we spotted at Bilderberg 2010) says we need now to "reinforce the European Parliament's role" which "will also strengthen the role of the [EU] Commission". So his solution to the crisis: "I need a bigger office."

    The Economist says that if the "elite venture" of Europe is to survive and thrive, "Europe's elites" have got their work cut out. It ventures to give the elites some "unashamedly technocratic" advice on how to forge their closer union, but it needn't worry, the technocrats of Bilderberg seems to have the matter in hand. Mario Monti (unelected Italian PM, Bilderberg steering committee) said this week: "Europe can have euro bonds soon."

    But we're not in Europe now, we're in Chantilly, and the CIA is just up the road from the conference venue, so protestors had better stay on their best behaviour. And we're expecting plenty of them – gathering under the activist umbrella: "Occupy Bilderberg"

    What a difference a year makes. Occupy Bilderberg? I love it. The Occupy movement seems finally to have realised that the problem isn't the 1%, it's the 0.001%. It's the guys and gals and whatever David Rockefeller is who are meeting in Chantilly, Virginia, at the end of the week. Many hundreds of protestors have pledged to show up. And who knows, they may just manage to drag the mainstream news media with them.

    Historically, one of the biggest problems people have had with Occupy is that its aims and demands have been a little, shall we say, "diffuse". Not the case with Occupy Bilderberg. That's the nail getting hit squarely on the head. Occupy Bilderberg is keyhole activism. Picking the exact right spot and sticking the scissors in.

    "We refuse to pay for the banks' crisis" was the cry from OccupyLSX back in the autumn. They demanded an end to "our democracy representing corporations instead of the people." What Bilderberg represents is the fact that our democracy IS our corporations. And politics is just the wake behind a shark fin.

    Time to go fishing.

    No doubt someone will inform Charlie of this error.
