|According to the foundation owned and controlled libs, "the perpetuation of the myth that groups such as Biliderberg are all-powerful is a political distraction" and "a right-wing anti-communist conspiracy theory," never mind that David Rockefeller, Bilderberg heavyweight, has admitted an internationalist conspiracy to control the world. "If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it," Rockefeller writes on page 405 of his memoir.|
Fire up the Google News search engine and enter “Bilderberg” and check out the results. Not one corporate media source — not the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, et al — deemed it appropriate to mention, even in passing, the 56th Bilderberg meeting in Chantilly, Virginia, this week. The American Friends of Bilderberg, described as “an offshoot Bilderberg front group that has accepted donations from the Ford Foundation to fund Bilderberg meetings” and “a secretarial outpost through which Bilderberg conferences are organized,” issued a press release this year, but the corporate media did not follow-up. Surprisingly or not, few so-called “alternative” media sources mentioned it, either.
Raw Story, WorldNetDaily, Gather, the American Chronicle, the Canada Free Press, the American Free Press, and the Moderate Voice covered the story. Of course, Prison Planet and Infowars covered the story in depth. In Istanbul, the Turkish Daily News ran a story, reporting Turkey’s Foreign Minister Ali Babacan was in attendance, along with a handful of Turkish politicians and business leaders. Radio Netherlands reported that Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende would attend “the highly secretive annual meeting of the world’s most influential people,” but left it at that.
Raw Story’s article points to the participation list posted on Infowars and mentions Paul Joseph Watson’s article on the Obama campaign’s refusal to deny “the Democratic nominee attended Bilderberg last night following reports that he and Hillary Clinton were present at ‘an event in Northern Virginia,'” an “obvious link to the ongoing Bilderberg conference” in Chantilly.
Popular blogger Wonkette mentioned Bilderberg, but only as a platform to launch an attack against Jim Tucker and “several people” who protested the event. Wonkette also made mention of the “angry paultard-esque emails” received after posting the above. Apparently, according to Ana Marie Cox and her stable of libs at Wonkette, only “paultards” are concerned about the Bilderbergers and their agenda of predatory globalism, as everybody else realizes the conference is simply an informal gathering of politicians and business leaders harmlessly talking over world events as they munch fiddlehead ferns and caviar.
According to Chip Berlet and like-minded “progressives” (read, Democrats), all of this obsessive business about the Bilderbergers is a waste of time. Berlet “argues that the perpetuation of the myth that groups such as Biliderberg are all-powerful is a political distraction,” explains SourceWatch. “Why are people recycling a right-wing anti-communist conspiracy theory? People need to be less credulous and gullible. Not everyone who has an anti-elitist framework is our ally,” an exasperated Berlet declares. Discussion of the Bilderbergers is “right-wing populist conspiracism” and “diverts us from a systematic analysis of how wealthy elites control the economy and the political scene.” It should be noted that Berlet hails from Political Research Associates, funded by the Ford Foundation and the very wealthy elites he complains about. The PRA functions as the elite’s gatekeeper on the so-called Left. Berlet and PRA also take money from the Tides Foundation, a creation of the Pew Charitable Trusts, in the business of controlling “progressives” for decades.
On its face, it makes no sense the corporate media would ignore and fail to report a confab comprised of newsworthy royal elites, chancellors, prime ministers, presidents, ambassadors, secretaries of state, Wall street bankers and investors, CEOs of transnational corporations, and corporate media executives. It makes no sense — that is until you realize the corporate media is owned and directed by this very same elite. In the past, darlings of the corporate media have attended Bilderberg meetings, including the late Peter Jennings of ABC, Joseph C. Harsch of NBC, the “liberal” Bill Moyers of PBS, the “conservative” William F. Buckley, Jr., Robert L. Bartley of the Wall Street Journal, the neocon William Kristol, Thomas L. Friedman of the New York Times, the late Katharine Graham of the CIA’s favorite newspaper, the Washington Post, Leslie Stahl of CBS, and many others. Many are also members of the CFR and the Trilateral Commission.
It is no mistake a Google News search reveals absolutely no reportage from the corporate media on the Bilderberg confab currently underway in Virginia. In effect, the Bilderbergers own the corporate media. “Critics have suggested that the media have been slow to investigate and report on the Bilderberg because many corporate news executives and journalists are members of the Group,” noted Parascope. “Like all other Bilderberg attendees, these individuals have agreed to remain silent about the meetings, in spite of their responsibilities as high-ranking members of the national and international media…. Although underground information activists have managed to pierce the local media bubbles and gather useful information about the Bilderberg’s meetings, scrutiny of the Group in the establishment press is still verboten.”
Indeed, so verboten is coverage of the Bilderbergers they have dispatched “security” thugs to harass, intimidate, and threaten journalists, as Alex Jones and the Infowars team discovered this past week. However, even with this concerted campaign to stifle coverage of Bilderberg events, with each passing year more information detailing their secretive proceedings is revealed to the public, thus demanding more strenuous effort on the part of the Chip Berlets and Wonkettes of the world to deride this information as the kooky delusions of far right-wing nuts jobs and Paultards.
