Now that my head cold has taken a turn for the worse I'm stuck at home today and on the loose as I surf roguishly about the cybersphere, lookin' for trouble.
Somehow I picked up a March 10, 2001 interview with Denis Healey, one of the founders of the Bilderberg Group, titled Who pulls the strings? and thought you might have a grain of salt large enough to digest his quite mild statements about what the "private" club of power elite string-pullers are really up to.
Of course, Healey takes exception to the term "secretive" - they're "private" - and each attendee who's invited to participate must do just that - participate by speaking. Seems they can't just sit through the meetings like bumps on logs but must open their precious traps and tell the group how the world should be run within their areas of expertise - political, business, banking, and media.
Here's a brief excerpt from Mr. Healey circa 2001:
"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."
Never mind that entire cultures of people the world over don't want a "single community" which seems quite impossible to me. Most people just want to be left alone from the meddling string-pullers of the Bilderberg Group and other secret societies yet a certain 'weeding out' (aka, population control) is taking place as I type, isn't it?
Imho, Healey's "killing people and rendering millions homeless" is an ongoing project these 8 years later for they're at it still. But apparently that's what they 'feel' takes to impose a one-world government on a global population that totally disagrees with the high-minded ideals of a few concerning how the masses should live what are, after all, their own lives.
And I do remember in spite of my stuffed-snoot haze that it was UK's The Guardian that ran 'joke coverage' of the Bilderberg conference held in Athens, Greece (May 2009) in an attempt to make outsiders' interest in their secret doings seem conspiracy-theory-mad.
Interestingly, their May 2009 meeting occurred during authoritarian Saturn's Direct Station @ 14Vir54.
Well, if you wish, check out a long yet incomplete list of members and attendees through the years - that is, if Wikipedia doesn't follow through on their stated intention of deleting the list of names. (I have the list tucked away in case it should suddenly disappear.)
Vernon Jordan invited Bill Clinton to the 1991 conference where his presidency was endorsed, or decided, depending on what you believe about the way the world 'works' as directed from the halls of power and the infested bowels of power politics.
So you may notice that the list of names includes Hillary Clinton, Timothy Geithner, Larry Summers, Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, Tom Daschle, and others from the US, any one of whom might have invited presidential candidate Barack Obama to the annual Bilderberg meeting at Chantilly, VA, June 2008.
But so far, I haven't found President Oabama's name on the list. Funny, that.
