The annual secretive Bilderberg Group conference, which brings together the capitalist world’s financial, political, and media kingpins in various venues, was held this year in Chantilly, Virginia, near the back gate of Washington Dulles International Airport. The Marriott Westfields resort hotel venue allowed official and unofficial guests to make their way from the airport as clandestinely as possible, thus avoiding the large number of protesters representing both the progressive “Occupy” and conservative “Tea Party” movements who gathered at the government security perimeter erected for the “private” conference.
This year’s Bilderberg conference featured three guests from Russia. However, unlike the “establishment” figures from Western nations, including the United States, Britain, Germany, France, and Canada, two of the three Russians represented the anti-Valdimir Putin opposition. Present at Bilderberg 2012 were Anatoly Chubais and Garry Kasparov, leading anti-Putin Russian politicians.
Chubais is reviled among a majority of Russians for shepherding the wholesale privatization of Soviet and Russian Federation state enterprises under the administration of President Boris Yeltsin and Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin. The chief benefactors of the privatization were a handful of Russian entrepreneurs who soon became billionaire oligarchs. Many of these oligarchs soon found themselves in prison in Russia or in exile in Britain and Israel to avoid prosecution in Russia. Today, Chubais is the head of Rusnano, a leading Russian nanotechnology firm.
At the Chantilly conclave, Chubais rubbed shoulders with the robber barons of Wall Street, including former Goldman Sachs and Citigroup senior executive and Bill Clinton Treasury Secretary Robert E. Rubin, Goldman Sachs International Chairman Peter Sutherland, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Company co-chairman Henry Kravis and former Obama Office of Management and Budget director and current Citigroup vice chairman Peter Orszag.
Chubais has also held meetings with the U.S. ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul. McFaul has, like a number of new breed activist U.S. ambassadors, grossly interfered in the domestic affairs of the country to which he is posted. After one recent meeting with Chubais, McFaul publicly complained that Russian Russian NTV journalists were waiting for him as he departed the from the meeting. Displaying all the signs of a paranoid conspiracy theorist, McFaul bellyached that his email and phone calls were being eavesdropped upon by the Russian press thus giving the media a heads up as to his daily itinerary.
Kasparov, the leader of the United Civil Front of Russia, and his colleague Boris Nemtsov are leading members of the Russian opposition to Putin. McFaul has openly championed the opposition cause. Moreover, Nemtsov is an old political ally of Chubais. Chubais, Kasparov, and Nemtsov represent the “neo-liberal” political ideology that is supported by the likes of international stock and currency speculator and multi-billionaire George Soros. Neo-liberals, if they were to come to power in Russia, would transform Russia into a nation totally dependent on the dictates and whims of the financial elites of New York, London, and Frankfurt. It is apparent that given the representation of bankrupted European nations at Bilderberg 2012, Chubais and Kasparov would relish a Russia forced to impose strict austerity measures on its citizens on the orders of the global banking elites, turning Russia into another Greece, Spain, and Ireland.
Bilderberg 2012 was not lost on American protesters who abhor the secret deliberations of the global elites who regularly gather to plot and scheme at venues like Bilderberg, G-8 and G-20, Davos, and the more obscure but no less important annual Ambrosetti Forum, called “mini-Davos,” held in Cernobbio on the shores of Lake Como, Italy. This year at Bilderberg, protesters of the progressive “Occupy Wall Street” movement and the right-wing “Tea Party” joined forces to call attention to the secret machinations transpiring inside the Chantilly, Virginia hotel.
Although Russia was certainly on the agenda of Bilderberg 2012 as witnessed by the presence of two leading Russian opposition figures, it was not the only country targeted by the secretive global power brokers. The Bashar al Assad government of Syria was also on the Bilderberg hit list. Present at the Chantilly conclave was Bassma Kodmani, member of the executive bureau and chief foreign affairs spokesman of the Syrian National Council, the umbrella rebel alliance that includes “Al Qaeda” veterans of guerrilla wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, and Libya. As further evidence of the collusion of the Western elites with controlled forces of disruption that include “Al Qaeda,” leading neo-conservatives, including those who advocated for the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq, were also in attendance at Bilderberg. They included Richard Perle of the American Enterprise Institute, a frequent habitué of Bilderberg; noted Zionist Dennis Ross, the “career” U.S. Middle East envoy who has ensured that recent Democratic presidents align their foreign policies with Israel, and the always reliable Arab apologist for Israel and the United States, Fouad Ajami of the Hoover Institution.
The attendance of corporate media executives is also a hallmark of Bilderberg. Chantilly was no exception this year. Present at Bilderberg 2012 were Donald Graham, chairman and CEO of the Washington Post Company; Charlie Rose, member of the elitist Council on Foreign Relations and host of the U.S. Public Broadcasting System’s Charlie Rose Show; John Micklethwait, the editor-in-chief of The Economist; Martin Wolf, chief economics commentator for the Financial Times; Erik Izraelewicz, the CEO of France’s Le Monde; Enis Berberoglu, editor-in-chief of Turkey’s Hurriyet newspaper; Jonas Bonnier of the Swedish media giant Bonnier AB; and Oscar Bronner, owner of Austria’s Der Standard newspaper. Bilderberg meetings are all off-the-record so it is evident that the media representatives are not serving the interests of the Fourth Estate or the journalism profession but are acting as facilitators for the architects of the “new world order” of vulture, vampire, and vermin capitalism.
The director of the U.S. National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command, General Keith Alexander, made a repeat Bilderberg showing at Chantilly. Undoubtedly, America’s and Israel’s new willingness to engage in cyber-warfare through the use of the “Flame” virus launched against Iran in the CIA’s and Mossad’s operation “Olympic Games” and their earlier use of the Stuxnet virus against Iran was on the agenda at Bilderberg. Also present in Chantilly was Thomas Donilon, President Obama’s National Security Adviser.
Representatives of Europe’s banker-ravaged nations of Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy, and Ireland were also present in Chantilly, obviously to give the bankers an update on how their vile form of capitalism has managed to successfully re-introduce high unemployment, starvation, and homelessness to the European continent.
In a display of “transparency” Bilderberg has, in recent years, published its attendee list. However, this list is misleading. Although the list includes those who attend the entire conference, it omits those who slip in and out covertly. The names of Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton appeared no where on the official list at Bilderberg 2008, which was also held in Chantilly. However, it is reasonably certain that both were present at the conference. Some government leaders are quite content to openly attend Bilderberg. This year’s conference saw Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann, Netherlands Prime Minister Mark Rutte, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, and Alberta Premier Alison Redford on the official guest list.
It is also noteworthy that Bilderberg is always held at the Marriott hotel in Chantilly. This year’s Republican presidential candidate Willard Mitt Romney owes his first name to J. Willard Marriott, founder of the Marriott Corporation.
For all of its evils, Bilderberg is instructive in so many ways. Largely the brainchild of the Nazi collaborator, the late Dutch Prince Bernhard, in the post-war years in Europe, Bilderberg attracts its fair share of pro-Israel businessmen and bankers. The collaboration of the “Israelites” with an organization founded by a Dutch collaborator of the Nazis illustrates the meaningless nature of the left/right and Zionist/anti-Semitic paradigms in the world of the Bilderbergers. In the mind sets of the elites, political labels and epithets are mere trivia and fodder for the powerless masses. For in the end, it is raw power and obscene wealth that truly counts.
