Boldly Going Nowhere

Bilderbergers and Hackensackers

In 1954, a group of powerful men and women met in the Bilderberg Hotel in Holland to form an alliance whose purpose was to organize the world in a manner suitable to their liking. This alliance, known as the Bilderberg Group, has held annual meetings ever since to influence the fate of the world. This year is the 50th anniversary of the organization, made up of 120 prominent businessmen, politicians and European royalty.

The annual meetings are held in total secrecy in posh locations in Europe or North America. This year, the meeting will be held in Stresa, Italy, during June. Reporters and other outsiders are prevented from attending, or even entering the premises, by armed security forces, and not a word of what is said in a Bilderberg meeting can be breathed outside. Meetings are held behind closed doors and the minutes are not published.

According to former Bilderberg delegate Will Hutton, a British economist, the meetings are the "backdrop against which policy is made worldwide." Prince Bernhard of Denmark, a Bilderberg Group founder, stated, "It's difficult to reeducate the people who have been brought up on nationalism to the idea of relinquishing part of their sovereignty to a supernatural body." The primary goal of the Bilderberg Group is a one-world government. And to no one's surprise, the Bilderbergers would like very much to be in charge of that government.

Bilderberger George McGhee, former U.S. Ambassador to Germany, contends, "The Treaty of Rome, which brought the European Market into being, was nurtured at Bilderberg meetings." In the 1998 Bilderberg meeting, one of the decisions was to encourage British Prime Minister Tony Blair to press harder for Britain's entry into the European Union, another step toward one-world government. British journalist Tony Gosling claimed, "I first heard about the determination of U.S. forces to attack Iraq from leaks that came out of the 2002 Bilderberg meeting."

Critics of the Bilderberg Group claim that they coercively manipulate global finances and establish rigid, binding monetary rates around the world. The Group selects political figures they believe will further their cause and targets those who oppose their goals. This strategy guarantees the propagation of their own power and the enrichment of its members, often at the expense of human rights and environmental concerns.

Like it or not, powerful people in high places are meeting regularly and secretly to manipulate world affairs.

Samuel Berger, formerly Bill Clinton's national security advisor, speaking recently at the Brookings Institute, observed, "Globalization -- economic, technological, cultural and political integration -- is not a choice. It's a growing fact. It's a fact that will proceed inexorably, with or without our approval. It's a fact we ignore to our peril."

It's not too farfetched to believe that powerful people meet to discuss a common agenda. The problem is the secrecy. Any activity that is honorable should be available for public scrutiny. Our currency says it all: Novus Ordo Seclorum -- New World Order. Perhaps a one-world government has been in the works for a long time.

I once belonged to a similar secret organization that operated on a slightly smaller scale. In 1996, we held a meeting at a Motel Six near the airport in Hackensack, New Jersey. We were much like the Bilderbergers -- full of ambition and avarice, yearning for power. Thereafter, we were referred to as the Hackensack Group.

Our goal was to acquire acreage by homesteading the median strip of the New Jersey Turnpike, from Bayonne to Perth Amboy, and grow asparagus. We spent two days surveying the area and formulating strategy.

Unfortunately, one of the Hackensackers discovered that the Homestead Act of 1862 was repealed in 1977, bringing our operation to a grinding halt. Rather than come up with another plan, we met for breakfast at a waffle house and disbanded the group. After 48 hours in New Jersey, we figured it just wasn't worth it.

Sometimes it's better to go with the flow and let the greed-heads who want to control the world flounder in their own ambitions. Anyone who wants to be in charge of this planet is either a masochist or an idiot. Or both.
