Bilderberg gets under way, this year’s meeting taking place amid formidable security at the Nafsika Astir Palace Hotel in Vouliagmeni, Greece.
The main focus will be on the global economy and what steps the meeting intends to make next in this wholly orchestrated crisis.
As always, most government representatives are attending this behind-the-scenes meeting illegally under the terms of their respective country’s laws. The presence of representatives of the US government at Bilderberg such as US Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner, completely violates the Logan Act which forbids US citizens to convene and negotiate with members of foreign governments without express authorisation from their own government. But what are laws, the Constitution or the Bill of Rights to them - worthless bits of paper!
We have already learned that Obama will come under pressure to get Congress to sign on to the International Criminal Court, which, once ratified, would allow the Court to reign supreme over the US Congress and its Supreme Court. Another step towards globalism.
Meanwhile, Guardian reporter Charlie Skelton has got rather more than the paper or himself bargained for I suspect. In what might well have been a debunking jaunt for Skelton, who is, after all a comedy writer, his probing of Bilderberg has brought him face to face with the lion’s den. Ever since his arrival in Greece, his every move has been tracked and traced and he has got embroiled in many face to face confrontations with the police. Hopefully this escapade might wake up a few geo-politically slumbering minds at the Guardian and foster further investigation in a more serious light. That is until, of course, the dead hand of the censorious state catches up with them. Just how many of their ranks will then dare to put their necks on the line and defy the D-notices?
Another item on this year's agenda, according to Bilderberg investigator Daniel Estulin, will be that “One of their concerns is addressing and neutralizing the anti-Lisbon treaty movement called “Libertas” led by Declan Ganley. One of the Bilderberger planned moves is to use a whispering campaign in the US media suggesting that Ganley is being funded by arms dealers in the US linked to the US military.”
The gradual exposing of Bilderberg after five decades of its existence, is now been challenged in higher circles. A Dutch Member of Parliament, Harry van Bommel, has formally petitioned Prime Minister Jan-Peter Balkenende and his European Affairs Minister Frans Timmermans over their involvement with this secretive assembly of some of western Europe’s most influential people. And it’s thanks to those indefatible crusaders for transparency and justice, Paul Joseph Watson and his blog and articles by Daniel Estulin that have brought Bilderberg to the attention of senior politicians like van Bommel.
Dutch journalist, Jurriaan Maessen, records that van Bommel wrote in his petition that “From the leaked agenda we learn that there will be discussed how to deal with the anti-Lisbon movement ‘Libertas’ through a slander campaign against its leader Declan Ganley. It remains a serious setback for the elite, not just the European elite, that the treaty has still not been ratified”, Van Bommel explains. “They wish for a more powerful European Union, even it is realised through undemocratic games. Considering the regularly attendance of our royal house and ministers, I have asked Prime Minister Balkenende and Minister for European Affairs Timmermans to have the political participants withstand such a slander campaign.”
He than follows up with this list of questions for Balkenende and Timmermans:
1 Are you aware that from May 14 to 17 2009 in Vouliagmeni, Greece, the Bilderberg conference is gathering?
2 Is it correct that Queen Beatrix will attend?
3 Are there members of the cabinet who will participate in the conference? If so, which members?
4 Is there a consensus in the cabinet on the participation of this conference or is this left to individual members? Is there deliberation between the Prime Minister and the queen in regards to participation?
5 Will you make public the items that will be discussed as well as a list of the participants? If not, why not?
6 Is it correct that the Lisbon-treaty will be prominent on the agenda of this Bilderberg-conference?
7 Are you familiar with the report that speaks of the planned discrediting of anti-Lisbon movement ‘Libertas’ with the help of a slander campaign against its leader Declan Ganley? Are you willing to request of Queen Beatrix or political participants from the Netherlands to withstand any such slander campaign?
