Romney policy advisors on defensive over secretive group’s power

The secretive Bilderberg Group’s agenda for its 2012 meeting has attracted national attention with an article by veteran Politico journalist Ken Vogel exploring charges that the organization is set to play a decisive role in the upcoming U.S. presidential election.
The article, entitled Marco Rubio as vice president: the Bilderberg conspiracy, focuses around our piece from back in April which flagged the fact that the Washington Post, itself a creature of Bilderberg, had not so subtly implied that Bilderberg may have a hand in picking Mitt Romney’s running mate just as they picked VP candidates in 2004 and 2008.
“Like any good conspiracy theory, there’s just enough there to stoke questions,” writes Vogel. “John Edwards’s speech to the Bilderberg Group’s 2004 meeting in Stresa, Italy, reportedly helped clinch his selection as that year’s Democratic vice presidential candidate. And Jim Johnson, the man who chaired that vice presidential selection process and initially was tasked with spearheading Barack Obama’s 2008 search for a running mate, is a leading Bilderberg member, while prominent Romney advisers including Robert Kagan and Vin Weber have attended past meetings, as have Bill Clinton, Donald Rumsfeld and top finance, media and tech executives.”
Vogel also quotes two time Bilderberg attendee Vin Weber, who claims that no scheming takes place at the event and that it is “just a conference.” Another Romney foreign policy adviser, Robert Kagan, claims the meeting merely represents, “a lot of vaguely uninteresting people giving vaguely uninteresting lectures and then having nice meals in nice places.”
However, as we have exhaustively documented with numerous different examples, Bilderberg does indeed create the consensus for setting policies of global significance, including the introduction of the euro single currency.

As former NATO Secretary-General and Bilderberg member Willy Claes admitted during a 2010 radio interview, Bilderberg attendees are mandated to implement decisions that are formulated during the annual conference of power brokers.
Claes said that Bilderberg guests are normally given around 10 minutes of talk time, after which a report is compiled of their presentation.
“The participants are then obviously considered to use this report in setting their policies in the environments in which they affect,” stated Claes, according to the translated text.
Vogel’s Politico piece is another sterling example of how Bilderberg’s cloak of secrecy is gradually being unveiled through pressure as a result of increasing numbers of activists doing the mainstream media’s job for them by drawing attention to the annual confab.
The ‘Occupy’ Bilderberg protest that Alex Jones first initiated has now gone viral, and Bilderberg 2012 looks set to attract record protests that will outstrip anything seen previously.
Alex Jones has developed two sources within the Bilderberg Group itself. The veracity of these sources was successfully put to the test when Jones was informed that the code name for this year’s meeting was the “Palm Tree Conference,” a fact later confirmed when Jones called the Westfields Marriott hotel and pretended to be a Bilderberg attendee who wanted to confirm his booking.
The 2012 Bilderberg Group meeting will take place from May 31st to June 3rd at the Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles hotel in Chantilly, Virginia.
