It’s not easy these days being members of the world’s elite class of business tycoons, bankers, political leaders of various “neo”-ideology stripes, and “bought-and-paid for” members of the media. In the European elections, the people have spoken. What the European electorate had to say about the globalization promoted for years by the cabal of Bilderberg billionaires, politicians, and propagandists that gathers in different countries annually to plot their next moves is certainly not music to the ears of the elite.
“Bilderberg 2014” chose Copenhagen, Denmark, as their venue for their annual “off-the-record” meetings and side chats that adhere to the so-called “Chatham House Rule.” Chatham House is the headquarters for the elitist Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) in London, a well-known front for Britain’s MI-6 Secret Intelligence Service. The RIIA serves as Britain’s version of the powerful and U.S. intelligence-connected Council on Foreign Relations in New York. The Chatham House Rule states: “Participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.”
Among the topics on the Bilderberg agenda this year are those that put the global elites in a crisis mode. Considering the number of times former U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) directors and their corporate surveillance facilitators have attended Bilderberg meetings, it’s easy to see why NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and his revelations about how the U.S. and other nations well represented at Bilderberg engage in wholesale invasions of personal privacy threaten the world’s elites. For that reason, the Bilderberg 2014 agenda poses the questions, “Does privacy exist” and “How special is the relationship in intelligence sharing?”
Of course, for the movers and shakers at Bilderberg, most would argue that privacy is not an inherent right but a privilege extended by the very powerful to only the most law-abiding of citizens. As for the second question, the extent of the FIVE EYES intelligence sharing between the United States, Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand (the FIVE EYES partners) and over 40 “Third Party” allies, has called into question the need for such widespread eavesdropping. Of course, the Bilderbergers would, as indicated by their topic question, that such intelligence sharing relationships are, in fact, “special,” and must be protected at all costs from the likes of Snowden and his supporters. To keep NSA’s interests at the forefront, former NSA director General Keith Alexander, is in attendance at Bilderberg 2014 just as he attended several past meetings of the secretive group while serving as NSA director. Joining Alexander in Copenhagen is Tom Donilon, President Barack Obama’s former national security adviser, and Henry Kissinger, the eminence grise for major cabalistic conspiracies over the last two generations. Also in Copenhagen is John Sawers, the head of Britain’s MI-6 and an expert in the Chatham House Rule . . .
Alexander’s cohorts in surveillance, Eric Schmidt, the chairman of Google, and Alex Karp, the CEO of Palantir, are with the former NSA director in Copenhagen, just as they had been together at past Bilderberg conclaves talking about their favorite subject: the public-private partnership for total information surveillance or “collect it all” as Alexander referred to it while leading NSA.
Two other Bilderberg agenda topics indicate that events in Europe pose an existential threat to Bilderberg. One is the onset of Cold War-era tensions between Europe and Russia over Ukraine and the other is the rejection of a federalized Europe, and indeed, globalization, by voters across Europe in the recent elections for the European Parliament.
As usual with Bilderberg conclaves, the 2014 meeting in Copenhagen is cloaked in secrecy, with a massive public and private security presence in place to deter protesters or inquisitive reporters. For example, journalists were cleared out of the Copenhagen Marriott Hotel, one of the venues for the Bilderberg meeting, by security staff. The journalists were later detained by Danish police for asking too many questions about the Bilderberg meeting.
While some journalists were being arrested, other elite journalists from Rainews 24 of Italy, The Economist, Le Monde, The Financial Times, and Svenska Dagbladet are joining their cabalistic masters in Copenhagen, under the publication prohibition of the very non-journalistic Chatham House Rule.
Those with a vested interest in promoting the inclusion of Ukraine in the European Union/NATO contrivance of the global bankers are bolstered by the presence at Bilderberg Copenhagen of Ukraine’s new major debt holder, Christine Lagarde, the chief of the International Monetary Fund, along with Peter Sutherland, the Irish chairman of Goldman Sachs International. And the military viceroy and chief centurion for the global bankers—outgoing NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, a former Danish prime minister, and NATO military commander General Philip Breedlove, respectively—are in Copenhagen to boast to their corporate masters that the West has successfully pushed its military domain well into Ukraine after the U.S.- and EU-financed coup that ousted from power in Kiev, President Viktor Yanukovych, an opponent of EU loans and NATO membership for Ukraine.
Representing European royalty in Copenhagen is the Queen of Spain. Europe’s royal houses in Spain, Britain, and Belgium are facing redrawn borders with strong independence movements taking hold in Catalonia, Scotland, and Flanders, respectively. Bilderberg, as the secret guarantor of the status quo for the royal houses of Europe and the banking houses of the Rothschilds, Warburgs, and Rockefellers, will undoubtedly discuss keeping Europe’s current borders intact, by force, if necessary. The Bilderberg attendees also see problems ahead for the much-touted Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), a corporate contrivance that intends on further reducing the sovereignty of not just European nation-states but also the United States and Canada in a transatlantic economic union that will destroy life sustaining jobs and social safety nets.
The first-place European Parliament election finish for nationalist right-wing and anti-EU parties in Britain (the UK Independence Party—UKIP), France (the National Front), and Denmark (the Progress Party) has, along with the first place results for the far left and anti-austerity SYRIZA Party in Greece, sent shock waves through the European elitist establishment, including Bilderberg circles. To further shake up the EU, which has been a partner of the United States in backing NATO and neoconservative adventurism in Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia, the right-wing Jobbik party, which is opposed to NATO intervention in Ukraine, finished a strong second-place in Hungary. The first and second place results for European nationalist parties opposed to a confrontation with Russia came as very bad news for the neocon likes of Richard Perle and disgraced former CIA director General David Petraeus, both of whom traveled to Copenhagen.
Greece’s neo-Nazi Golden Dawn and Sweden’s neo-Nazi Sweden Democrats, along with Germany’s neo-Nazi National Democratic Party, were to be represented in the EU Parliament for the first time. These parties all have an earnest dislike for the EU, the global bankers who call the shots for the EU, and groups like Bilderberg which, although being started by a Nazi sympathizer, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, after World War II, has earned the enmity of neo-Nazis and leftist socialists and communists, alike.
The arrogance of some European politicians to the will of the people in the elections was staggering.
Jean-Claude Juncker, the current Euro-federalist prime minister of Luxembourg who was widely considered to be Barosso’s replacement as president of the European Commission, rejected the successes of the anti-EU nationalists and the anti-austerity leftists by saying, “I don’t care. I’m not on my knees. I won the election.”
Center-right European pro-federalist leaders almost immediately yanked their support for Juncker, a development that pointed to the disarray among the Euro-elites across the center-right and center-left political spectrum.
Juncker met his friend, the president of the European Parliament and the socialist’s candidate to replace Barosso, Martin Schulz of Germany, after the election. Juncker joked that he and Schulz, “met in the dark back rooms where the decisions in Brussels are made.” Although Juncker insisted he was joking, for the Euro-skeptics who won big and who threaten the very existence of the EU and its secretive Bilderberg puppet masters, he was not joking at all. Secrecy and “dark back rooms” are the name of the game with the EU, NATO, TTIP, and Bilderberg.
Other European leaders appeared ignorant and bewildered about the importance of the election results. French Prime Minister Manuel Valls, who was born in Spain, complained that the National Front win was a “political earthquake.” In fact, far from a natural disaster like an earthquake, the French electorate knowingly and with Valls chiefly in mind, rejected the continued immigration policies that permitted Valls, who was born in Spain, and his faux Socialist colleague Anne Hidalgo, the new mayor of Paris, who was also born in Spain, to migrate into France in the first place.
Although the British Conservatives, Labor, and Liberal Democratic parties were beaten by the UKIP, it did not stop Britain’s leading EU supporters, including Chancellor of the Exchequer and “Mr. Austerity” George Osborne; the Labor shadow Exchequer Chancellor Ed Balls, and Labor’s corporate man Peter Mandelson, from traveling to Copenhagen to plot a counter-strategy against British withdrawal from the EU.
Europeans, as shown by the EU election results, are growing wiser and more opposed to the way decisions are made to affect their daily lives by their leaders in collusion with unelected corporate barons and tycoons at venues like Bilderberg, Davos, the G8/G20, and other secretive conclaves of the world’s elite class. The elites scoff at and ignore the results of the EU elections at their own peril.
