The Bilderberg Depression


Elitists divided on whether to quickly sink economy and replace it with new world order, or set in motion long, agonizing depression.

On the eve of the 2009 Bilderberg Group conference, which is due to be held May 14-17 at the 5 star Nafsika Astir Palace Hotel in Vouliagmeni, Greece, investigative reporter Daniel Estulin has uncovered shocking details of what the elitists plan to do with the economy over the course of the next year.

The Bilderberg Group meeting is an annual confab of around 150 of the world’s most influential powerbrokers in government, industry, banking, media, academia and the military-industrial complex. The secretive group operates under “Chatham House rules,” meaning that no details of what is discussed can ever be leaked to the media, despite editors of the world’s biggest newspapers, the Washington Post, the New York Times and the Financial Times, being present at the meeting.

According to Estulin’s sources, which have been proven highly accurate in the past, Bilderberg is divided on whether to put into motion, “Either a prolonged, agonizing depression that dooms the world to decades of stagnation, decline and poverty … or an intense-but-shorter depression that paves the way for a new sustainable economic world order, with less sovereignty but more efficiency.”

The information takes on added weight when one considers the fact that Estulin’s previous economic forecasts, which were based on leaks from the same sources, have proven deadly accurate. Estulin correctly predicted the housing crash and the 2008 financial meltdown as a result of what his sources inside Bilderberg told him the elite were planning based on what was said at their 2006 meeting in Canada and the 2007 conference in Turkey.

Details of the economic agenda were contained in a pre-meeting booklet being handed out to Bilderberg members. On a more specific note, Estulin warns that Bilderberg are fostering a false picture of economic recovery, suckering investors into ploughing their money back into the stock market again only to later unleash another massive downturn which will create “massive losses and searing financial pain in the months ahead,” according to a Canada Free Press report.

According to Estulin, Bilderberg is assuming that U.S. unemployment figures will reach around 14% by the end of the year, almost doubling the current official figure of 8.1 per cent.

Estulin’s sources also tell him that Bilderberg will again attempt to push for the enactment of the Lisbon Treaty, a key centerpiece of the agenda to fully entrench a federal EU superstate, by forcing the Irish to vote again on the document in September/October despite having rejected it already, along with other European nations, in national referendums.

“One of their concerns is addressing and neutralizing the anti-Lisbon treaty movement called “Libertas” led by Declan Ganley. One of the Bilderberger planned moves is to use a whispering campaign in the US media suggested that Ganley is being funded by arms dealers in the US linked to the US military,” reports CFP.

Daniel Estulin, Jim Tucker, and other sources who have infiltrated Bilderberg meetings in the past have routinely provided information about the Bilderberg agenda that later plays out on the world stage, proving that the organization is not merely a “talking shop” as debunkers claim, but an integral planning forum for the new world order agenda.

Indeed, just last month Belgian viscount and current Bilderberg-chairman √Čtienne Davignon bragged that Bilderberg helped create the Euro by first introducing the policy agenda for a single currency in the early 1990’s. Bilderberg’s agenda for a European federal superstate and a single currency likely goes back even further. A BBC investigation uncovered documents from the early Bilderberg meetings which confirmed that the European Union was a brainchild of Bilderberg.

In spring 2002, when war hawks in the Bush administration were pushing for a summer invasion of Iraq, Bilderbergers expressed their desire for a delay and the attack was not launched until March the following year.

In 2006, Estulin predicted that the U.S. housing market would be allowed to soar before the bubble was cruelly popped, which is exactly what transpired.

In 2008, Estulin predicted that Bilderberg were creating the conditions for a financial calamity, which is exactly what began a few months later with the collapse of Lehman Brothers.

Bilderberg has routinely flexed its muscles in establishing its role as kingmaker. The organization routinely selects presidential candidates as well as running mates and prime ministers.

Bill Clinton and Tony Blair were both groomed by the secretive organization in the early 1990’s before rising to prominence.

Barack Obama’s running mate Joe Biden was selected by Bilderberg luminary James A. Johnson, and John Kerry’s 2004 running mate John Edwards was also anointed by the group after he gave a glowing speech at the conference in 2004. Bilderberg attendees even broke house rules to applaud Edwards at the end of a speech he gave to the elitists about American politics. The choice of Edwards was shocking to media pundits who had fully expected Dick Gephardt to secure the position. The New York Post even reported that Gephardt had been chosen and “Kerry-Gephardt” stickers were being placed on campaign vehicles before being removed when Edwards was announced as Kerry’s number two.

A 2008 Portuguese newspaper report highlighted the fact that Pedro Santana Lopes and Jose Socrates attended the 2004 meeting in Stresa, Italy before both going on to become Prime Minster of Portugal.

Several key geopolitical decisions were made at last year’s Bilderberg meeting in Washington DC, again emphasizing the fact that the confab is far more than an informal get-together.

As we reported at the time, Bilderberg were concerned that the price of oil was accelerating too fast after it hit $150 a barrel and wanted to ensure that “oil prices would probably begin to decline”. This is exactly what happened in the latter half of 2008 as oil again sunk below $50 a barrel. We were initially able to predict the rapid rise in oil prices in 2005 when oil was at $40, because Bilderberg had called for prices to rise during that year’s meeting in Munich. During the conference in Germany, Henry Kissinger told his fellow attendees that the elite had resolved to ensure that oil prices would double over the course of the next 12-24 months, which is exactly what happened.

Also at last year’s meeting, former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice formalized plans to sign a treaty on installing a U.S. radar base in the Czech Republic with Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg.

Rice was joined at the meeting by Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who reportedly encouraged EU globalists to get behind an attack on Iran. Low and behold, days later the EU threatened Iran with sanctions if it did not suspend its nuclear enrichment program.

There was also widespread speculation that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s “secret meeting,” which was accomplished with the aid of cloak and dagger tactics like locking journalists on an airplane to keep them from tracking the two down, took place at the Bilderberg meeting in DC.

It remains to be seen what kind of mainstream media press coverage Bilderberg 2009 will be afforded because, despite the proven track record of Bilderberg having a central role in influencing subsequent geopolitical and financial world events, and despite last year’s meeting being held in Washington DC,the U.S. corporate media oversaw an almost universal blackout of reporting on the conference, its attendees, and what was discussed.

Once again, it will be left to the alternative media to fill the vacuum and educate the people on exactly what the globalists have planned for us over the coming year.

Are these the guys that took over the Trilateral Commission? Or is this a puppet of the Commission? Or, was the Tirlateral Commission always a diversion while Bilderberg did the real work? Did they kill JFK?

If this is true then does negate the Elliott Wave Theory that social psychology and mood are the primary factors in market swings. Or is this the proof that social mood is artificially generated by Bilderbergers?

It all sounds a little ridiculous (but that's what they want us to think).

Whatever happened to Lassie and Leave It to Beaver?

What characterizes the elite more than anything is arrogance. The belief without question that they can play puppetmaster to the world. Take for example Bernanke. Does he look the least bit bothered, the least bit troubled to you about printing trillions of dollars in debt? No. Not at all. Europer at least has some fight left in it. You at least see people rioting in France, Greece, Iceland, etc. Americans have become so fucking fat, stupid, and lazy that they will let the state roll over them and put them into slavery if it comes to it. It's really sad and pathetic what this country has become. People watching sports, American Idol, eating KFC, getting fat, going to the mall, eating mall food, getting fatter. Just look at the blank, stupid cow eyes and 4x4 asses of people on the street and it tells you everything you need to know. Just a bunch of overfed cows on their way to the slaughterhouse. Sorry to rant. But it's true.

60 Minutes tonight did a profile on Robert Gates, Obama's Secretary of Defense. Gates is also a member of the Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission and Council of Foreign Relations. Oh yea, he was also George Bush's Secretary of Defense.

All merely coincidental..........

To Anon at 3:59...Arrogance? Read your comments while looking in the mirror. The definition of irony.

PENN STATE Eric said...

I don't see the arrogance in ANONs post. It's pretty truthful. He wasn't claiming to be better than anyone or anything, so arrogance may be a poor word choice by definition. I think his comment bothered you because it holds weight, no offense, but denial is the first....anyway.

We've been too comfortable with our success which has led to complacency. Such is the housing market situation for example, our leaders got brazen due to this American complacency with leadership and it's burnt economies across the globe because everyone just figured they could get rich and make money from these half-ass sales and transfers of debt. And it's not just the housing market, it's society here in the US in general. Welfare, Olympic basketball (up until '08), taxation WITHOUT representation (which for some reason we just accept, our forefathers would be ashamed), TV timeouts in sports (horrible), there are so many things that we've just accepted because none of us have stood up...we just eat it.

We've grown to half-ass things from our jobs to ourselves. This is complacency in action. Don't believe it? We're living it. Denial is the first....

Well, Penn state, the difference is that at least you say "we" as opposed to they. But do you mean it?

Sweeping generalizations are easy. "All Americans are fat and lazy."

See. But what about you, me and that other guy?

PENN STATE Eric said...

Well, I'm not exactly sure what you're asking. My intrepretation is you're asking if you, me, and that other guy are 'stupid/fat' etc Americans. My answer is maybe. I'm fit enough tu run a few 5 or 10k races and sharp enough to make for, and understand, a decent conversation here with all the intellects. I think within every society you have winners and losers. Some get rich by using their abilities, some are only skilled enough to flip the burgers (and barely for that matter). But as a whole all of us here in America feel that we 'deserve' to be rich. Is that statement not true? We've 'worked soooo hard' and 'done the right things' why can' I just win the lottery? Right? But the facts remain, we haven't earned it. This is where we've derailed through complacency. We're so accustom to being winners as a culture that when we realize that the majority of us are financial losers or career loser or sports has-been losers or whatever it is that causes this realization, it's "too late". We're already lazy because we thought we were winners and now we don't want to change ourselves for the better as a big "FU" to the rest of the people around us who may have turned out to be winners. Does this make sense, or am I rambling?

I say "we" because I am an American through and through. Fat, lazy, stupid, arrogant, drop dead sexy, whatever you want to call me, or us, I am an American. I don't believe as a whole we are all fat/lazy/stupid/etc but we have strayed away from our go get it attitudes. I'm am in sales by trade. I understand, and preach, that you have to go get the money, the money isn't going to come to you. I think we've gotten to believe that the money is going to come to us like it has done for 50 years, which has made us less competitive in recent years. I cite the UAW for example. Chinese parts replacing American made parts. The Union can have American workers slowing down their production so older union workers don't look bad. This drives up the price of the part, a well made part though. However, China sells the same part with a 20% failure rate for 80% less. China wins and the company that sells the part looks better for having great customer service when they replace that failed part immediatly with a good part from China. It's a win-win for the international market. Now the union guy wants another $3/hr. That's our mindset. Needs to change and it's going to be forced to change in order to be competitive.

Not sure if I answered your question, sorry.

Charlie was blogging about the meeting or he tried to blog.;)

Here's a story about IMF.

Klein said during last week's interview on Charlie Rose that 'Obama is under a lot of pressure and needs the help of the voters' or something to that effect. Perhaps it's true. You can't assume your civic duty is done once the election is over. It was an informative interview and worth taking the time to watch it if you haven't done so already.

Do something constructive with your anger, organize.
