Bilderberg Group Meets In Athens Amid Tight Security (Geithner selling out USA)
nasdaq ^ | 5/15/2009 | nasdaq

Posted on 05/15/2009 10:02:00 AM PDT by milwguy

Some of the world's top business and political leaders started annual secret talks with the Bilderberg group Thursday in a suburb of Athens, under tight security control.

The surroundings of the Astir Palace, a luxury hotel in the suburban resort of Vouliagmeni, where the group is holding its annual meeting, were protected by dozens of policemen, who were keeping the press and public at bay, an AFP journalist said.

A Greek navy launch and boats carrying elite divers could be seen a few meters off the coast of the peninsula where the hotel stands. Greek newspapers said the group had also asked for the protection of two F-16 warplanes and a police helicopter.

Reports say U.S. State Department number two James Steinberg, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, World Bank President Robert Zoellick, European Commission head Jose Manuel Barroso, Queen Sofia of Spain and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands are among those attending the Bilderberg meeting.

The group, which has been holding annual off-the record talks open to guests only since 1954, feeds conspiracy theories and speculation about its intentions, with critics accusing it of plotting world domination.

Several sources say Polish political adviser Joseph Retinger, former Belgian prime minister Paul van Zeeland and former Unilever chief executive Paul Rijkens organized the first meeting at the Hotel Bilderberg in the Netherlands to unite European and U.S. elites amid growing transatlantic tensions a half-century ago.

Its success spawned similar talks at posh hotels and palaces in Europe, the U.S. and Canada each year since

Looks like Tax Cheat Timmy is on a mission from the Messiah to continue to sell out his country.

If you can connect the dots, from Obama wanting to give the World Bank another $100 billion of your tax dollars, to Tax Cheat Timmy meeting with the elites in Greece (but not in the news anywhere?), to the Chinese buying bonds denominated in SPDR's (new int'l currency they want to supplant the USD$), the groundwork is being laid for our demise.

Is it any wonder we are in the decline we are when the Speaker of the HOUSE calls the CIA liars and it is on page A20 of the NY Times? Why is it not news when the Treasury Secretary jets off to Greece to meet in SECRET to plot who knows what, all on the taxpayer dime? It must not be news when the Chinese stop buying our debt, and the Federal Reserve is forced to intervene to prevent a failure of our bond auctions.

Our news elite have joined our financial elite who are now conspiring with our politica elite. Between the three, the people, those who live in flyover country, are being led to slaughter like sheep.

Geithner and Steinberg are there to ensure nobody is turning against Obama.

Noory had a guest on last night who said that the Overlords at the conference have decided that the economic downturn shall continue and get worse, for a long long time.

Which they probably are, because it’s a collection of elite capitalists, not commies.

You mean the liberal Coast-to-Coast AM Show believes someone is more powerful than Obama?

Exactly. Expect Obama to monitor any powerful group for signs of dissent....then he will turn Napolitano on them via Homeland Security.

It has been a theme on Noory’s show for a long time that the Overlords are more powerful than whoever the U.S. President is.

“accusing it of plotting world domination. “

Not really.
We just want to bring some order to all of the confusion out there.
We are not to be feared.

Their pro-global warming, anti-war stance lost me years ago. I doubt they have changed, but they are absolutely liberal.

George Noory knows and says Global Warming is BS and is a strong supporter of the war on terror..

So, your doubts are wrong.

Coast to Coast is entertaining sometimes, but its liberal. No denying that! However, even a blind dog sometimes finds a bone.

In truth, the burden is clearly upon the people who argue that there is NOT someone more powerful than Obama. Otherwise, u have to believe he is so wise, charismatic, and skilled, that he became president on his own merits. Clearly he was installed by a moneyed elite to be their tool, dupe, etc. Obama is clearly unintelligent by any modern standard. He was installed. As was probably Bush.

The debate isn’t about global warming[Sun can cause and others]. It’s if it’s man made.

You know what,, Bell was super liberal on issues of global warming,, etc. But he was unfailingly polite to those who disagreed. Never a jerk. Part of his charm is the way he stayed on the ven temperament no matter what someone claimed.

Good on the air. Agreed with very little of him, but could listen to him all night on a long drive.

I agree about Bell but Noory is so much better. I definately don’t like some of his guests but that’s part of the deal. On the nights that I listen, I fall asleep within the first hour anyway.

Is this build-a-burger group stuff actually real? Are they in it for themselves or are they really looking to make a one world government thing?

Should I get my tinfoil out or not?

Geithner is a *Reptillian* I use to think this was just a bunch of *hooey* but I do believe now Reptillians are in Government.

I don;t think it is so much that Reptillians exist, but that the old school elite of “old europe’ still wanting to stay relevant and push us back to serfdom.

Remeber how Clinton ‘accidentally’ bombed the Chinese embassy back in the day? What if that happened at a Bilderberger conference? A training exercise goes wrong and a cruise missile ‘accidentally’ ends up in the side of the hotel. What in the world would we ever do without the glittering jewels of the world attending those secret meetings every year?

Shadowy Bilderberg group meet in Greece — and here’s their address

Jim Tucker, veteran stalker of the Bilderberg club meetings, claims that Mrs Thatcher was ordered “to dismantle British sovereignty, but she said, ‘no way’, so they had her sacked”. Left-wing conspiracy theorists believe that Bilderbergers form a capitalist nucleus, and there is a germ of truth in this. The meetings were started in the Netherlands, in the Hotel de Bilderberg, near Arnhem, by the Polish exile Joseph Retinger. He was worried about growing anti-Americanism and the advance of Communism in Western Europe. Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands agreed to sponsor the idea, the head of the Central Intelligence Agency, Walter Bedell Smith, threw his weight behind it and so did the White House.

“To say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair,” Lord Healey told the author Jon Ronson for his book Them: Adventures with Extremists. “Those of us in Bilderberg felt we couldn’t go on for ever fighting one another for nothing. So we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing.”

Whether Lucifer will be down there on the sun-loungers remains to be seen. But what we have been able to establish from a World Bank spokesman, Alexis O’Brien, is that the organisation’s president, Robert Zoellick, will be in Athens on unspecified business on May 14. And that US Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s public schedule is mysteriously empty for the next two days. Jo Ackermann, head of Deutsche Bank, will be travelling “somewhere in Europe”. Jean-Claude Trichet, head of the European Central Bank, will not be around until the end of the week.

uhhmmmm, where is Hillary right now?

Yep Obama has concentrated the wealth of this country to a few and left the little guy to rot.

Thanks you Obama worshipers.
