The True Story of The Bilderberg Group by Daniel Estulin
October 7, 2010 by Bob Livingston
A shadow government made up of a select group of powerful political and wealthy elites meets annually to chart the course of world affairs. This group — which today includes many familiar names like Rockefeller, Kissinger, Clinton, Bush, Ford and Greenspan — advocates for a single world government in which they hold all the power.
Named for the opulent hotel in which the first group of the world’s elites and power brokers met in Oosterbeek, Netherlands in 1954 — the Hotel De Bilderberg — the Bilderberg group operated clandestinely for many years. But a few intrepid reporters, alarmed by the group’s growing influence in world affairs and driven by a love for the truth and a passion for freedom, have managed to pierce the veil and peer inside their secret enclave.
Daniel Estulin is one of them. At great hazard to himself, Estulin has become a thorn in the sides of the world’s most powerful people. And he has documented what has uncovered in his international bestseller, The True Story of The Bilderberg Group.
The book begins like a spy novel with Estulin describing an encounter he had while covering a Bilderberg meeting in Toronto in 1996. It was at this meeting that the Bilderberg group received its first significant media coverage.
One of Canada’s most widely read newspapers, the Toronto Star, had a large headline that day that read: “Black Plays Host To World Leaders.” The story chronicled how Canadian publisher Conrad Black had offered $295 million to gain control of Canada’s largest newspaper chain and survived a week’s worth of annual meetings for his Hollinger, Inc., but was also hosting a “four-day, closely guarded meeting of world leaders and royalty just north of Toronto.”
The story named about 100 of the attendees. That same day the Toronto Sun noted the group was meeting and it (Bilderbergers) was unhappy that suggestions were being made that the private event was part of a system of secret government.
Estulin and other part-time Bilderberg chasers celebrated. And then Estulin left to meet one of his contacts who had meeting information for him.
After meeting with the contact and receiving some handwritten notes about the proceedings, Estulin was about to step into the elevator to leave the building when the contact shouted, grabbed his arm and pulled him back. The floor of the elevator was missing and Estulin had almost plunged 800 feet down an elevator shaft.
This is just one of several instances of danger and intrigue Estulin has experienced since he began covering the Bilderberg group. Most were not this frightening, but all go to show that he is operating in a world with different rules.
In The True Story of The Bilderberg Group, Estulin shows the relationship that the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations have with the Bilderberg group. He names the members and attendees of these organizations, and you’ll be astonished at how almost all of the higher ups in government and the CEOs of large corporations are a part of shadow government.
And they do make up a shadow government that forces world events — sometimes slowly, sometimes quickly — in a direction that will allow them to achieve the goals of a One World Government. One in which they hold all the power and all the wealth and those who aren’t part of their “select” society are mere vassals of one large state.
This quote, attributed to David Rockefeller in 1991 at the Bilderberg meeting in Baden-Baden, Germany by several sources, speaks volumes about the goals of the Bilderberg group:
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications, whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
As Estulin points out, the mainstream media have for years been represented at Bilderberg meetings but have pointedly abstained from providing the meetings with any coverage. This is by design, he writes, and he lays in great detail how most of the major media corporations are essentially controlled, through Chase Manhattan Bank, by the Rockefellers.
If not, they are controlled by other Bilderbergers: The aforementioned Conrad Black who once owned more than 440 media publications around the world, from The Jerusalem Post to Canada’s The National Post; Rupert Murdoch, who owns the Fox News and Sports channels other cable channels, The Weekly Standard, the New York Post and dozens of other newspapers around the world and Direct TV; and Sumner Redstone, CEO of Viacom, an international media conglomerate that touches virtually every major segment of the media industry.
Estulin explains how and why many of the events in American politics are orchestrated by the Bilderberger group. For instance, how did an unknown governor of Arkansas rise to prominence, gain the presidency and push through the North American Free Trade Agreement. One answer: The Bilderberg group.
Clinton was “anointed” for the presidency during the 1991 Bilderberg Conference in Baden-Baden. While there it was suggested he take a trip to Moscow, which he did immediately upon leaving Baden-Baden. There he met for 90 minutes with Soviet Interior Minister Vadim Bakatin, a cabinet official for President Mikhail Gorbachev. Gorbachev was in the midst of a hotly-contested Presidential election which he lost just six days later to Boris Yeltsin. But Yeltsin appointed Bakatin to his cabinet.
“It appears,” Estulin writes, “that President Clinton was sent by the Bilderbergers directly to Moscow to get his KGB student-era, anti-Vietnam War files ‘buried’ before he announced his candidacy for the U.S. Presidency, which occurred some two-and-a-half months later.”
It’s reported that Clinton promised Yeltsin that, in exchange for the “burial” Russian warships would be given full refueling and other port privileges at all U.S. Navy bases — a promise that was kept more than once.
But Clinton was neither the first nor the last U.S. President owing an allegiance to the Bilderberg group. Estulin notes that since 1928 all sitting U.S Presidents have been CFR or TC members or Bilderbergers or have had their staffs filled with them (in the case of Lyndon Johnson and George W. Bush).
Estulin has done a marvelous job of peeling back the layers to expose the Bilderbergers — with photos and documentation secreted out of the annual meetings — and explain how the shadow government directs world affairs. He lays out in great detail the designs of the Bilderbergers using their own words.
This book is a must-have for anyone who wants to truly understand who is making decisions and framing the message that affects the world today, and who wants to learn exactly what the ultimate goal is of those individuals.
