Bilderberg club: list of participants from Russia
An informal conference is held annually, consisting of about 130 participants, most of whom are influential people in the field of politics, banking and business, coming from the editorial boards of the largest Western media. Login is possible only by personal invitations. The topics of the meetings are not announced in the press (although lately it is increasingly possible to find out what the members of the Bilderberg club are talking about). At meetings, you can not shoot and record on the recorder, the press is not allowed.
Meetings of the Bilderberg Club have been held annually since 1954. Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands suggested that influential politicians and businessmen from Western Europe and the United States of America meet at the Bilderberg hotel 90 km from Amsterdam. Those who fought along different front lines of the Second World War 10 years ago were invited. The site was needed to define a new world order.
The meeting was attended by 50 of the most influential personalities from 11 countries. The composition of the Bilderberg club claimed Prince Bernhard himself, together with the CIA, as well as Henry Kessinger and David Rockefeller. Henry Kessinger is an American statesman and diplomat, an expert in international relations and the US Secretary of State from 1973 to 1977. The name of David Rockefeller is familiar to everyone - an influential banker and statesman, grandson of the first oil magnate, the first dollar millionaire in history and the founder of Standard Oil, John D. Rockefeller.
The idea was an informal meeting of the powerful to discuss world problems. The participation of the press was not expected. It was planned that the first meeting will continue for three days. The safety of the participants was ensured by the country in whose territory the Bilderbergers are gathered. Today, the organization’s headquarters is in New York (Carnegie Endowment), and meetings are held around the world.
When it became known about the meetings
The general public about the secret meetings of the powers that be became known in 1957, when the American columnist Westbrook Pegler wrote an article about a meeting of politicians and businessmen in the state of Georgia.He himself learned about the meeting from the reader, who said that during a vacation in one of the local hotels he noticed a large crowd of police and federal agents who ensured the safety of invited guests. This closeness of the club later gave rise to many conspiracy theories that have not ceased until now.
Secret world government
In some sources, the Bilderberg Group is called the world government, because the meetings discuss supranational problems and outline the direction in which the whole world is moving. Perhaps this is just an informal meeting of leaders, at which the problems of humanity are discussed in order to take into account the interests of the entire world community. Someone thinks that this is a collection of the richest clans to consolidate the status and redistribute the world's wealth.
Secrets of the Bilderberg club begin to reveal. Today it is not such a closed society as before. Official meetings are held to strengthen the dialogue between the United States and Europe, but during the Cold War, it seemed to many that this was coordinating actions against the Soviet Union,and then against other states or organizations that could potentially be dangerous for capitalist Europe and the States.
Members of the Bilderberg Club
The club includes about 400 people, a third of them are citizens of the United States, the rest are Europeans and Asians (Koreans, Japanese, Singaporeans). After each meeting, an informal report is prepared, which is distributed only between current and former members of the club. Speakers usually change every year. Only eight members are members of the club’s government: Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld, Henry Kissinger, Nelson and David Rockefellers, Alan Greenspan, Robert McNamara and Richard Perl.
Nelson, David Rockefeller's older brother, died in 1977. David himself passed away in 2017. Most likely, now his son, the new head of the Rockefeller House, David Rockefeller Jr., is invited to the meetings. Paul Wolfowitz - American politician, President of the World Bank (2005-2007), who was forced to resign after a scandal with the promotion of his mistress Shah Raza. Henry Kessinger (like Paul Wolfowitz) is still part of the Bilderberg Club.
Donald Rumsfeld - politician from the United States, Secretary of Defense during the presidency of George W. Bush and Gerald Ford. Alan Greenspan - American economist, manager of the Federal Reserve for 18.5 years. Robert McNamara died in 2009. A Republican politician helped rebuild Ford Motors after the end of World War II, for some time served as president of the company, but then became Minister of Defense. In this position, set a record - 2595 days in office. Richard Pearl is a defense specialist, political analyst, politician, active participant in US-Russian relations.
Interestingly, most members of the Bilderberg club are of Jewish origin. Their methods of doing business and affairs in politics sometimes caused extremely negative reviews from colleagues and compatriots, scandals and a wide public resonance were played out around them. The powerful of this world never looked to the opinion of the majority.
Chairman of the Bilderberg Group
The organization’s chairman today is Etienne Davignon. The 85-year-old Viscount was in the past one of the Commissioners of the European Commission, today he is the head of a large corporation. Davignon's office in Brussels is covered with caricatures of himself.He does not like to give interviews, but in 2005 he shared with the BBC representatives his opinion on the activities of the Bilderberg club. Who really rules the world, Etienne Davignon does not know, but believes that they are definitely not representatives of the organization, which he prefers to call private, rather than secretive. The chairman downplays the importance of the club, arguing that these are just meetings of influential people who want to communicate with such influential representatives of politics and big business.
