2009 Bilderberg Meeting to be Held in Athens

 

The Bilderberg Club, famous for hosting secretive meetings each year with the world's highest ranking and most powerful officials, is scheduled to have the 2009 meetings from May 14th to 16th, reports the newspaper Elefterios Tipos.

The guest list includes royalty, policy makers, and business leaders. Some of the guests include Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, US National Security Council James Jones, and Domenico Siniscalco of Morgan Stanley.

“The Bilderberg Club is the camarilla of the richest economically and politically powerful people in the Western world, who meet in secret, in order to plan events, which later on just happen,” writes one Greek newspaper.

  The pictures from the last one were kind of funny  
 
The members, while being driven in were hiding in the backseats of their cars. Some of them literally laying on the seats to make sure their faces were not photographed!

Im guessing they will be discussing this new greatest depression that we are possibly facing. I am betting some radical ideas will come from this meeting. Possibly some ideas that will not sit well with the public at large...

  How about...  
 
How about we just decide the fate of the world with a George Soros and Rupert Murdoch cage match?

Seems fitting, the extreme left and extreme right pundits dueling it out for total media domination.

That sounds about right.

Maybe C&C, AOE, Total Annihilation, Empire Earth, and etc have all been our training simulations.

Join the Global Defense Initiative today and stop terrorism(or [insert rebellion name here]) at it's doorstep.

  I bet  
 
Nothing exciting happens and everything stays pretty much as boring as it has always been, but that people will keep saying that there's some sort of freaky plot going on behind the scenes, like they always have. I'm thinking that's a real safe bet.

When a meeting of policy makers get together to discuss things that will eventually affect my life, I would prefer the forum be open. When policy is made in secret, there are usually darker reasons for it. Ideas that are created in the darkness and fester in the light are not ones I generally think we should put in place an any nation!

If their ideas are good ones, then why not speak about them openly? Why not make the event open to reporters?

Because the only time you want to hide what you are talking about is when you are scared that others may not like what you have to say.

you're right i can't believe how stupid i was. nothing to see here people, just a group of the richest most influential people in the world not least of which is our own policy makers. please move along if you raise speculation you're obviously wearing a tin hat... christ when everything gets bad i'm going to blame you just so i feel better...
 
  by: mrmarler     03/30/2009 03:58 AM     
  No policy  
 
... is written at this meeting. Ideas are exchanged, and apparently some people like the opportunity to circulate ideas without the media recording everything they say.

You do realize that it is illegal for our leaders to even attend without direct approval from congress or the president. The law they are in violation of is the "Logan Act". It strictly states that public leaders are not allowed to meet in private meetings like this simply because they breed extreme corruption normally.

Geeze it seems to me like you support the idea of secrecy and corruption within our positions of government...
 
  by: slavefortheman     03/30/2009 04:27 AM     
  @slave  
 
I favor total public transparency and total respect of privacy, nothing more than that. Being as no policies are set by this group, we have no right to know what goes on at its meetings, no matter who belongs to it, unless it's illegal.

And the Logan Act is an unenforceable piece of crap -- it's a miracle it's still on the books. If it were to be enforced, it would essentially prohibit things like Westerners giving lectures to Middle Eastern leaders about how some Americans are distrustful of Arabs or Muslims.

Also, I grabbed this quote from Wikipedia, which relates a 1975 State Department opinion on the act:

"The clear intent of this provision [Logan Act] is to prohibit unauthorized persons from intervening in disputes between the United States and foreign governments."

If not then here is the best quote you can take from it:

"The very word 'secrecy' is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths, and to secret proceedings."


-John F. Kennedy

  Secrecy or Bust  
 
Lot of secrecy in the world.

There are lots of REAL conspiracies, but only the goofy, insane ones are believed.



"The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists".

J. Edgar Hoover, former head of the FBI



Even many presidents and other government officials belonged to secret societies.

  @ Ben_Reilly wow!  
 
Has America really become this dumbed down to believe that these people are meeting to do good things? Do your own research and realize that u actually have less rights in this country than many others around the world because of this very group, find out who really pulls the pres strings. I feel sorry for the people who actually go for the crap that is broadcasted by the bought and paid for media, mark my words very soon this internet will soon be controlled and regulated by our gov. and the sad thing is probably most of America will think its no big deal. You will be told and conditioned by only what they want you to hear. Oh and the Logan Act is no joke, people that say that kind of junk, surely have no problem being without any rights at all. Those who sacrifice libery for temporary security deserve neither, need I say more.
