The official Bilderberg website claims that the 62nd Bilderberg Meeting will take place in or around the capital city of Copenhagen in Denmark, on the last week of May 2014. A shortlist of possible venues in and around Copenhagen reveals a few contenders. Some online sources have put forth the Marriott Hotel in Copenhagen, which appears to be block booked between Wednesday, May 28th through to Sunday, June 1st. But as we will show you, Bilderberg may be held in two venues this year, as it was last year.
The elitist organization, which meets on an annual basis in either Europe, the United States or Canada, is comprised of some of the most powerful heavyweights of industry, banking, politics, royalty, academia and technology.
Last year, the likes of Jeff Bezos, Timothy Geithner, Christine Lagarde, Henry Kissinger, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, and British Prime Minister David Cameron were all in attendance.Although the group has been known todouble book different hotels to throw reporters off the scent, the Marriott will very likely be the site of the conference.
Here is the complete official list of Bilderberg attendees for 2013. Only few of the attendees are permanent members of the Bilderberg group, all others are regularly replaced, according to the needs of the “elites.” Also, the shadow members (David Rockefeller, Jacob Rothschild, Henry Kissinger, etc.) are probably never listed and possibly not even attending the meetings in person
It’s important to note that this year is the first time the location of their annual meeting has been announced by Bilderberg in advance, and any ‘official’ venue announcement could also be a diversion from its real location in or out of Copenhagen – or even outside of Denmark itself. Despite their announcement of this year’s event being in Denmark, both Belgium or the Netherlands still seem like more likely locations considering proximity to this year’s G7 in Brussels.‘Bait and Switch’
Last year, many hundreds of Bilderberg enthusiasts gathered at Watford’s Grove Hotel last summer, and even staged a ‘Bilderberg Festival’ on the adjacent grounds, but unknown to the alternative media crowds in attendance, the Grove Hotel was only an ‘R & R’, or ‘rest and recovery’ venue for conference attendees Thursday to Sunday, with social events, golfing and at least one interesting corporate presentations for delegates. Meanwhile, the real Bilderberg Conference actually took place on the other side of London, with steering committee meetings on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the luxury Selsdon Park Hotel resort (photo, Below) located in Croydon, South London – a venue with its own heliport and only minutes away from Gatwick International Airport.
Although this information was available in the alternative media circles and on social media in advance of last year’s event (we are told that the original source of this information came via a law enforcement tip off), it was ignored by crowds who seemed more attracted to the party on offer rather than actual meeting. Everyone was hoodwinked it seems.
With last year’s event long over, there are few activists or alternative media keen to entertain the possibility that they had been a victim of misdirection at the hands of Bilderberg, with some brushing off the plot as irrelevant in comparison to the ‘networking opportunity’ that Bilderberg 2013 provided them, and the sense of community felt at the Grove, which it was. As well-organised as the alternative media appear to have been however, it should be noted also how well-organised the Bilderbergers were in diverting their adversarial herd into a designer corral – all the way across town from the actual conference (there’s a real lesson in that for everyone).
Another prime Conference, or ‘R & R’ venue, for this year’s Bilderberg could be Copenhagen’s Kokkedal Castle, a secluded venue with suitable alternative access and egress points, along with golf course facilities and other function staging areas (and a dungeon or two), and it is also said to be fully booked from the 29th May 2014. Which ever venue it is, proximity and easy access to an international airport would be at the top of the organisers’ list.
Kokkedal Castle: Could this be the venue for this year’s Bilderberg Meeting?
Bilderberg paradigm certainly shifted in 2013, Bilderberg is getting more proactive in terms of its PR management. It’s safe to say that Bilderberg has been forced into the public eye due to the fact that alternative and mainstream media coverage, as well as access to information on Bilderberg, has grown in recent years – making it impossible to remain completely in the shadows. In light of this shift, it’s safe to assume that Bilderberg will run diversions as standard, and that the meeting itself will contain less and less substance as the public light increases, as the global elite move out of their steering committees and nudge ever closer to implementing a working framework for their beloved world government institution.
This Year’s Agenda
Much has been made in the past of Bilderberg being an audition weekend for future US Presidents and UK Prime Ministers. Past attendees included Tony Blair, Bill Clinton, and even Barack Obama – who is said to have attended with Hillary Clinton during the 2008 primary race, and where a deal may have been brokered by Bilderberg for Hillary to stand down and wait until her turn in 2016. Other hopefuls like Texas Governor Rick Perry and GOP nominee Mitt Romney have showed their face before or during their campaign trails, so attendance itself does not necessarily mean they are selected for leadership. This year could see Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, or Florida’s Jeb Bush in attendance, which would send the Bilderberg rumours flying of course.
So rather than the meeting itself, what could be more important than VIP appearances – are announcements of other globalist events taking place before and after Bilderberg. Last year saw Google’s ‘Big Tent’ event which took place before Bilderberg at their Watford venue, and shortly afterwards, the G8 was held in Ireland. One of their big announcements was of course the plan for a ‘global taxation regime’, which appeared to be a stage-managed crisis including a fake joust between UK Chancellor George Osbourne and Google ahead of the Google Summit. Nonetheless, all players appeared to be on board with the directive. This important development went mostly unnoticed by top alternative media outlets, who perhaps were more focused on the celebrity aspect which defined the spectacle that became Bilderberg 2013. Look for a similar globalist-corporate announcement or new policy directive likely to be rubber-stamped at Bilderberg this year.
One item certainly on their list will be negotiations on the EU-US Transatlantic Partnership (TP) and Free Trade Agreements, which the public and sleeping politicians are now waking up to. The TP is dangerous. It gives transnational corporations and their lawyers dominion over a nation’s laws and sovereignty. TP working groups are already way ahead of any public discourse, giving the transnational corporations behind the TP a massive head start. Bilderberg’s captains of industry and political water carriers will certainly be working hard to accelerate their TP agenda during that week in Denmark.
A mechanism called investor-state dispute settlement. Where this has been forced into other trade agreements, it has allowed big corporations to sue governments before secretive arbitration panels composed of corporate lawyers, which bypass domestic courts and override the will of parliaments.
This mechanism could threaten almost any means by which governments might seek to defend their citizens or protect the natural world. Already it is being used by mining companies to sue governments trying to keep them out of protected areas; by banks fighting financial regulation; by a nuclear company contesting Germany’s decision to switch off atomic power. After a big political fight we’ve now been promised plain packaging for cigarettes. But it could be nixed by an offshore arbitration panel. The tobacco company Philip Morris is currently suing Australia through the same mechanism in another treaty.
No longer able to keep this process quiet, the European commission has instead devised a strategy for lying to us. A few days ago an internal document was leaked. This reveals that a “dedicated communications operation” is being “co-ordinated across the commission”. It involves, to use the commission’s chilling phrase, the “management of stakeholders, social media and transparency”. Managing transparency should be adopted as its motto.
Transpacific Partnership (TPP) 7 Aspects
TPP “trade deal” that barely deals with trade is a corporate coup d’etat partnership for corporate protectionism. First off, FOOD DOMINANCE. Any of our government’s food safety regulations (on pesticide levels, bacterial contamination, fecal exposure, toxic additives, etc.) and food labeling laws (organic, country-of-origin, animal-welfare approved, GMO-free, etc.) that are stricter than “international standards” could be ruled as “illegal trade barriers.” Our government would then have to revise our consumer protections to comply with weaker standards.
Second, PUBLIC CONTROL. TPP rules would limit how governments regulate such public services as utilities, transportation and education including restricting policies meant to ensure broad or universal access to those essential needs. One insidious rule says that member countries must open their service sectors to private competitors, which would allow the corporate provider to cherry-pick the profitable customers and sink the public service.
Third, INTERNET LOCKUP. Corporations hoping to lock up and monopolize the Internet failed in Congress last year to pass their repressive “Stop Online Piracy Act.” However, they’ve slipped SOPA’s most pernicious provisions into TPP. The deal would also transform Internet service providers into a private, Big Brother police force, empowered to monitor our “user activity,” arbitrarily take down our content and cut off our access to the Internet. To top that off, consumers could be assessed mandatory fines for something as benign as sending your mom a recipe you got off of a paid site.
Fourth, DRUG MONOPOLY. Big Pharma would be given more years of monopoly pricing on each of their patents and be empowered to block distribution of cheaper generic drugs. Besides artificially keeping everyone’s prices high, this would be a death sentence to many people suffering from cancer, HIV, AIDS, tuberculosis and other treatable diseases in impoverished lands.
Fifth, BANKERS. Wall Street and the financial giants in other TPP countries would make out like bandits. The deal explicitly prohibits transaction taxes that would shut down speculators who have repeatedly triggered financial crises and economic crashes around the world. It restricts “firewall” reforms that separate consumer banking from risky investment banking. It could roll back reforms that governments adopted to fix the extreme bank-deregulation regimen that caused Wall Street’s 2007 crash. And it provides an escape from national rules that would limit the size of “too-big-to-fail” behemoths.
SIXTH, JOB IMPLOSION. US corporations would get special foreign-investor protections to limit the cost and risk of relocating their factories to low-wage nations that sign onto this agreement. So, an American corporation thinking about moving a factory would know it is guaranteed a sweetheart deal if it moves operations to a TPP nation like Vietnam. This would be an incentive for corporate chieftains to export more of our middle-class jobs.
SEVENTH, FRACKING CATASTROPHE. Our Department of Energy would lose its authority to regulate exports of natural gas to any TPP nation. This would create an explosion of the destructive fracking process across our land, for both foreign and U.S. corporations could export fracked gas from America to member nations without any DOE review of the environmental and economic impacts on local communities or on our national interests. All this plus what we don’t know about yet. US, Japan, Australia, Peru, Malaysia, Vietnam, New Zealand, Chile, Singapore, Canada, Mexico, and Brunei Darussalam are the negotiating countries.
Another one to look out for is any major IMF, ECB, or US Federal Reserve announcement after Bilderberg.
On the foreign policy and geopolitical front, the West’s severing of cooperation with Russia will be front and centre on the agenda, but look out for a major diplomatic crisis and announcement involving Syria or Iran before Bilderberg as globalists move on to the G7 (formerly G8, now sans Russia) the following week at the beginning of June 2014. The US are also in the process of ramping up the war in Syria for the summer of 2014, and new arms shipments to opposition fighters are already underway via Jordan, so Syria will be in the frame for sure.
Denmark certainly has the pedigree required for a Bilderberg bash, with many commentators pointing out its global government credentials, from its 2009 UN Climate Summit ‘COP13′, where the framework for global government was unveiled to its much hyped ‘green image’, Denmark is a bonafide internationalist nation, and synonymous with the word “progressive”, especially in liberal discourse.
