From 9 June to 12 June 2011, the Bilderberg Group had their annual meeting at St.Moritz, Switzerland.
The group brought together some of the most influential and wealthiest people in the world: European royalty; high ranking politicians - including Chinese and European Cabinet Ministers; international bankers - including the President of The World Bank, the President of the European Central Bank and the UK Chancellor of the Exchequer; corporate bosses - including those of Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Royal Dutch Shell among others; the Head of US Cyber Command and the National Security Agency; senior Executives representing media - like the BBC; and sundry puppeteers like David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger; and a number of incognito members.
The hotel the group stayed at was ringed by security rings several layers deep. Unarmed private guards outside, snipers on the roof and the secret service-types within. The venue was off-limits not just to the general public - but to ALL uninvited guests.
One Italian Member of European Parliament (MEP) was beaten and then arrested by the private guards, and the next day a Member of the Swiss Parliament - yes, Swiss Parliament, was denied entry!
Four days after a meeting of such secrecy and significance, the Reuters' website has NO news regarding the meeting; the BBC's website has one article rather condescendingly titled, "Bilderberg Mystery: Why do people believe in cabals?" (the previous article on Bilderberg being from 2005); and the CNN site has one article surprisingly (or perhaps, unsurprisingly) titled, "Why do we embrace conspiracy theories?". CNN actually has NO news with the word "Bilderberg" in its title.
Thankfully, The Guardian covers it well. (With a scathing conclusion as well.) As did over 300 journalists repesenting alternative media - mainly online ones.
So it may also come as no surprise that one of the topics discussed at the Bilderberg 2011 meeting was "Social Networks: Connectivity and Security Issues". Hmmm... Now go back and read the guestlist.
