Brief history,Character of meetings,Participants,Governance and Funding Brief history Bilderberg takes its name from the hotel in Holland, where the first meeting took place in May 1954. That pioneering meeting grew out of the concern expressed by leading citizens on both sides of the Atlantic that Western Europe and North America were not working together as closely as they should on common problems of critical importance. It was felt that regular, off-the-record dicussions would help create a better understanding of the complex forces and major trends affecting Western nations in the difficult postwar period.
The Cold War has now ended. But in practically all respects there are more, not fewer, common problems – from trade to jobs, from monetary policy to investment, from ecological challenges to the task of promoting international security. It is hard to think of any major issue in either Europe or North America whose unilateral solution would not have repercussions for the other.Thus the concept of a European-American forum has not been overtaken by time. The dialogue between these two regions is still – even increasingly – critical.Character of meetings What is unique about Bilderberg as a forum is the broad cross-section of leading citizens that are assembled for nearly three days of informal and off-the-record discussion about topics of current concern especially in the fields of foreign affairs and the international economy;the strong feeling among participants that in view of the differing attitudes and experiences of the Western nations, there remains a clear need to further develop an understanding in which these concerns can accommodated;the privacy of the meetings, which has no purpose other than to allow participants to speak their minds openly and freely.
In short, Bilderberg is a small, flexible, informal and off-the-record international forum in which different viewpoints can be expressed and mutual understanding enhanced. Bilderberg’s only activity is its annual Conference. At the meetings, no resolutions are proposed, no votes taken, and no policy statements issued. Since 1954, fifty-seven conferences have been held. For each meeting, the names of the participants as well as the agenda are made Public and available to the press. Participants Invitations to Bilderberg conferences are extended by the Chairman following consultation with the Steering Committee members. Participants are chosen for their experience, their knowledge, their standing and their contribution to the selected agenda.There usually are about 120 participants of whom about two-thirds come from Europe and the balance from North America. About one-third are from government and politics, and two-thirds from finance, industry, labor, education, communications. Participants attend Bilderberg in a private and not an official capacity.Governance and Funding Bilderberg is governed by a Steering Committee which designates a Chairman; members are elected for a term of four years and can be re-elected. There are no other members of the Bilderberg conference.The Chair’s main responsibilities are to chair the Steering Committee and to prepare with the Steering Committee the conference program, the selection of participants. He also makes suggestions to the Steering Committee regarding its composition. The Executive Secretary reports to the Chairman. The expenses of maintaining the small Secretariat of the Bilderberg meetings are covered wholly by private subscription.
The hospitality costs of the annual meeting are the responsibility of the Steering Committee member(s) of the host country

“Fie ca vreti, fie ca nu, vom avea un guvern mondial. Singura chestiune este daca va fi acceptat sau impus” – James P. Wartburg, bancher american si consilier financiar al Presedintelui Franklin D. Roosevelt
David Rockefeller : „Tot ce avem nevoie este o criza majora, iar natiunile vor accepta Noua Ordine Mondiala“
Din această organizaţie fac parte cam 180 de personalităţi politice, culturale, economice, universitare, mass-media s.a.m.d Bilderberg se întrunesc în fiecare an în luna mai, alternativ în Europa şi America,in aproape 50 de ţări. Istoria Clubului Bilderberg se confunda cu aceea a planetei noastre dupa cel de-al Doilea Razboi Mondial. Prima reuniune oficiala a avut loc intre 29 si 31 mai 1954, in localitatea olandeza Oosterbeek. Atunci a si imprumutat numele Hotelului Bilderberg, amfitrionul intalnirii, al carui proprietar era Printul Bernhard, tatal actualei Regine Beatrix a Olandei. De-a lungul existentei sale, desi isi neaga cu vehementa responsabilitatea pentru desfasurarea istoriei, Clubul a avut cuvantul decisiv in evenimente ca razboiul din Vietnam, crearea organizatiilor CECA, Euratom si CEE, precursoare ale Uniunii Europene, razboiul de Yom Kippur, loviturile de stat din Brazilia, Indonezia, Chile, Argentina, Honduras, Guatemala, debarcarea trupelor americane in Panama, bombardarea Ceceniei, razboiul din Golf, inventarea si sustinerea euro, conflictele nesfarsite dintre Israel si Palestina. Unii critici nu ezita sa-i considere pe bilderbergeri direct raspunzatori de atentatele din 11 septembrie. Clubul Bilderberg este pretutindeni. Marii preoti ai capitalismului: Numai simpla enumerare a identitatii catorva dintre personajele care au avut fie calitatea de fondatori, fie pe cea de membri ai Comitetului Inteleptilor ori ai celui Director, fie pe cea de simpli membri activi ori participanti periodici ar putea sa confere dimensiunea influentei de neinchipuit pe care Clubul o exercita si a uriasei sale puteri decizionale. Citam la intamplare: David Rockefeller, familia Rotschild, Henry Kissinger, Romano Prodi, prim-ministru al Italiei, regele Juan Carlos si regina Sofia ai Spaniei, printul Charles al Angliei, Javier Solana, Bush-tatal si fiul, Donald Rumsfeld, Bill si Hillary Clinton, Bill Gates, Jose M. Durao Barroso, presedintele CE, George Soros, Margaret Thatcher. La care mai pot fi adaugati, de pilda, reprezentanti ai banci-lor si marilor concerne multinatio-nale, baronii marilor trusturi de presa ai lumii, academicieni sau laureati ai Premiului Nobel Fratiile: Dar pentru ca mecanismul sa functioneze fara sincope, bilderbergerii se afla in contacte neintrerupte cu „activistii” altor institutii secrete care au monopolizat puterea si influenta pe mapamond. Iata o parte din acestea. „Skull & Bones” este o societate masonica autonoma, adica neafiliata la nicio Mare Loja obisnuita, care conteaza azi pe 900 de membri. Printre ei se afla si George W. Bush, care a aderat in 1968, fara a se feri sa-si recunoasca public apartenenta. „Mesele Rotunde”, initiate de Cecil Rhodes, discipolul masonului englez John Ruskin, propovaduitorul teoriei impunerii unui control strict al statului prin intermediul unui dictator sau al unei clase conducatoare speciale, constituie astazi un labirint de companii, institutii, banci si sisteme educative „care ar avea nevoie de o munca de un an pentru a i se stabili structura” (dr. Coleman, fost agent de spionaj britanic). Consiliul Afacerilor Externe (CFR), de fapt guvernul real al SUA, este o solida grupare paramasonica, cu peste 3.500 de membri, care incearca sa sustraga bancile oricarei puteri, pentru ca acestea sa ajunga sub controlul Guvernului Mondial. Nucleul dur al CFR este condus de fratii Rockefeller. Acelasi clan care „trage atele” Comisiei Trilaterale, „…o grupare de persoane din SUA, Europa Occidentala si Japonia, legate de marile finante, lumea afacerilor si politica, ce ofera elitei provenite din masonerie posibilitatea de a se intalni, in scopul unei colaborari secrete”. I-a furnizat Americii doi presedinti: Jimmy Carter si Bill Clinton. Masa Rotunda a industriasilor europeni (ERT), un grup de presiune ale carui propuneri si indicatii devin automat legi comunitare, pe care guvernele continentului le aproba fara cracnire. Daca se confirma coexistenta a doua masonerii – una vizibila si alta ascunsa (Masoneria celei de-a Patra Coloane), atunci Clubul Bilderberg se pare ca actioneaza chiar din interiorul acesteia din urma

Grupul Bilderberg este structurat pe trei niveluri :
1. „Cercul exterior” este foarte extins. Practic peste 80% din participanţii la reuniuni nu cunosc decât o parte din strategiile şi scopurile reale ale organizaţiei, deci fac parte din cercul exterior.
2. Comitetul director (Steering Comitee), al doilea nivel, este mult mai restrâns. Acest nivel este alcătuit din aproximativ 35 de membri, exclusiv europeni şi americani. Ei cunosc în proporţie de 90% obiectivele şi strategia grupului. Membrii americani ai acestui nivel sunt de asemenea şi membri în CRE – Consiliul Relaţiilor Externe (în engleză Council on Foreign Relations – CFR).
3. Comitetul Consultativ Bilderberg, al treilea nivel, este nucleul acestei grupări. El este alcătuit din 12 membri, singurii care cunosc în totalitate strategiile şi scopurile reale ale organizatiei
