According to a London Times report, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner will probably be in attendance at this week’s Bilderberg Group meeting, as top globalists meet to plot the financial future of the planet behind closed doors.
The Times article notes that “US Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s public schedule is mysteriously empty for the next two days,” speculating that he will be in Vouliagmeni, Greece for the annual elitist confab, following in the footsteps of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, who attended last year’s conference in Washington DC just months before the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the start of the economic crisis.
Geithner, who has overseen Obama’s bailout agenda since taking over from Hank Paulson, is the perfect stooge to implement the global financial regulatory systems that elitists have called for in the aftermath of the financial downturn.
Back in March, Geithner publicly stated that there were no plans to move towards a global currency to supplant the dollar, and yet at a private CFR meeting he assured his fellow globalists that he was “open” to the notion of a new global currency system.
Geithner’s presence at Bilderberg is noteworthy, not only because Bernanke attended immediately before the economic crisis last year, but also because Bilderberg’s agenda for 2009 is heavily weighted towards the financial crisis. According to a pre-meeting booklet handed out to members that was leaked to investigative journalist Daniel Estulin, “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 Times also reports that World Bank President Robert Zoellick, “Will be in Athens on unspecified business on May 14,” meaning it’s almost certain that he too will attend Bilderberg, as numerous past World Bank chiefs have done in previous years.
During a speech which preceded this year’s G8 summit, Zoellick openly admitted Bilderberg’s plan to eliminate national sovereignty and impose a global government via the imposition of worldwide financial regulatory powers.
Speaking about the agenda to increase not just funding but power for international organizations on the back of the financial crisis, Zoellick stated, “If leaders are serious about creating new global responsibilities or governance, let them start by modernising multilateralism to empower the WTO, the IMF, and the World Bank Group to monitor national policies.”
“To say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair,” top Bilderberg member Lord Healey once told author Jon Ronson, adding that Bilderberg members thought “A single community throughout the world would be a good thing.”
As we have previously highlighted, the European Union was a creation of Bilderberg founding members, aided by top Nazi economists such as Hermann Abs, Hitler’s top banker and a man described by Bilderberg luminary David Rockefeller as “the greatest banker of the 20th century”.
In addition to Geithner’s probable attendance, US Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg is using the pretext of an obscure meeting with Greek officials, the first time a member of the Obama administration has done so, to take his place at Bilderberg.
According to Greek newspaper Kathimerini, “Steinberg will be in Athens for a meeting of the international invitation-only club, the Bilderberg Group, which begins today and runs until Saturday.”
