Skip to comments.Friends in High Places: Bilderberg 2011 Kicks Off

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, naturally, isn't attending this year, and his likely successor Christine Lagarde is in China, but the Bilderberg Conference which kicks off in the Swiss resort of St. Moritz on Thursday retains its conspiratorial chic and pulling power.
The attendee list of Bilderberg is still pretty much the only thing that is not a closely guarded secret, as 120 of the world's richest and most powerful people meet behind closed doors, this time at the Suvretta House hotel in Switzerland, a venue which not only boasts a "fairytale castle" design, but also its own "Teddy World."
U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne are known to have attended in the past, although it seems unlikely that either will attend this week.
A spokesperson at the U.K. Treasury press office said it "didn't know" whether or not Osborne would go this year, but promised to call CNBC.com back. They did not. Given the secretive spirit of Bilderberg, that could well be taken as a confirmation.
The first Bilderberg meeting in 1954 was an attempt to stamp out post-war anti-Americanism in Europe, bringing together senior U.S. and European figures to meet and discuss the international challenges of the day.
Since then, the rich and powerful have continued to meet. The 2010 event, in Sitges, Spain, included on its agenda "The Growing Influence of Cyber Technology," "Security in a Proliferated World," "Promises of Medical Science," and "Can We Feed the World." according to its official website.
Its secrecy only serves to add fuel to the innumerate conspiracy theories that circulate around the event, with Internet message boards often channelling Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown and putting the "club" in the same bracket as the Freemasons and "Illuminati."
The 120 participants attend in a private capacity and, officially, they do not forge agreements over global economic policy.
"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," the official Bilderberg website says.
In which case, you might ask, what is the point of Bilderberg?
Why does Turbo Tax Timmy Geithner attend he is not particularly wealthy enough; he uses turbo tax forgodssakes!
Fredericks of Hollywood?
Because he’s a useful tool.
No it’s for kids only go figure LOL
The nannies bring the chillrens there when the place it not being used to buildburgers I guess?
I do not want unelected elitist P’s OS controling my life in any way, shape or form.
It will collapse like the tower of babble when the builder bergers turn on one another
I agree. It can’t work. But how far will it go before it collapses? Look at how far Obama is let to go every day...
In an ideal world where people had similar beliefs, ideologies, worldviews, ambitions, etc, this one world stuff might just work. But just the divide between Christians and Muslims is enough to nullify the whole thing.
Is Alex Jones, (as in the article Drudge is currently headlining) still tin foil hat here or some truth to him? I remember when Alex Jones/WND were called kooks just for mentioning that bilderbergers exist. Can I post the link that was removed in comment one of this thread to the Drudge headlined article? The globalization/NWO, world currency and Soros/Obama is in the news (they actually tried to implement with global warming before they were exposed) so why demonize Jones? Just wondering thanks for your time.
BTW: I think it is telling that a$$hat Romney is pro global warming and the MSM love him.
Exactly which is why I think Obama is allowing Israel to be surrounded with the muslim brotherhood and Hamas’ in Egypt and Libya so the war is resolved somehow to usher in NWO? Obama will USE the terrorists as allies and go against Israel; how crazy is this?
Open Lawbreaking in my opinion....
Competition law, known in the United States as antitrust law, is law that promotes or maintains market competition by regulating anti-competitive conduct.
They violate this LAW at these meetings.
Alex Jones is not welcome here at all.
That is freaky.
This flash animation comes to mind.
Alex Jones has no credibility whatsoever. Find other sources.
Isn’t this a cabal of one-worlder UN type supporters?
