"The Bilderberg Conference is an annual conference which was established in 1954 at the invitation of Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands at the Hotel de Bilderberg in Oosterbeck, the Netherlands. Its main founder was the Polish political philanthropist Joseph Retinger and its members include political leaders, statesmen, academics, businessmen, bankers, and union leaders from Western Europe and the NATO countries. They discuss the political, economic and military problems of Europe and the world."
"I don't think it's true to say that we want to keep it [Bilderberg] out [of the public consciousness], we never wanted to get it in. We don't encourage people to mention it in the mainstream press because we don't encourage idle speculation about what we do. ...... We forbid individual attendees from giving press meetings at our conferences, and we do that not because we're secrecy mad, but because we want to control the politicians who come." Martin Taylor - Secretary General, Bilderberg - interviewed by Jon Ronson for the UK Channel 4 TV programme 'Secret Rulers of the World' transmitted 27Jun01
The highly secretive Bilderberg conferences are arguably the most powerful political and economic gatherings on earth. The world's press are never informed that the conference is happening until the last black Mercedes leaves. If the press do find out it is happening they are kept away by secret police and security guards. Many world leaders and senior politicians attend these secret meetings (illegally) along with top royalty.
Prince Bernhard, creator of the Bilderberg, was a card carrying member of Hitler's SS
