<nettime> Bilderberger (fwd)

Bilderberg Meeting - media blackout continues

With only two weeks to go before some of the world's most famous and
influential men and women arrive in Portugal for the Bilderberg conference
at Penha Longa in Sintra, little or nothing is known about their secret
"world" agenda. More...

According to James P. Tucker Jr. writing in Washington's The Spotlight:
"The US led Nato attack on a sovereign nation is part of a much bigger
Bilderberg plan than stopping Serbians from butchering ethnic Albanians
according to a high U.S State Department source.

'It is important to the Bilderberg scheme for world government to get Nato
out from the limitations of its own charter' said the source, a reliable
observer for more than a decade."

It would not seem unlikely that the current situation in Kosovo will be
high on this year's Bilderberg agenda.

Just how strong the security around the meeting is likely to be, can be
judged from an article published in the UK Press Gazette regarding a
freelance journalist Campbell Thomas who attempted to cover the 1998
conference in Turnberry Scotland for the Daily Mail.

Thomas decided to gain neighbours' opinions and reactions on the secret
meeting being held nearby.

Thomas went on to interview a young woman who told him that he was in the
hotel's staff quarters and that he should leave immediately, he duly

A short while later, two local police officers arrested Thomas. Thomas was
kept in custody for eight hours. "I was treated in an appallingly
heavy-handed way, like a common criminal, the holding cell I was put in
was in a disgusting state, with excrement on every wall, and I was in that
cell for the best part of five hours."

Thomas was charged with a breach of peace for putting the young woman he
spoke to in a "state of fear and alarm", Thomas added "they took my shoes,
my belt, my glasses, even the wedding ring off my finger. The whole thing
was ridiculous".

Interestingly, Prime Minister António Guterres, listed his attendance at
the 1994 Bilderberg conference on his personal CV at the government
internet site, which can be accessed at
http://www.primeiro-ministro.gov.pt/p-curriculo.html, Guterres was made
Prime Minister the following year, and his name has not appeared on the
"guest lists" since that date.

Margarida Marante, an extremely successful television journalist with the
Portuguese television channel SIC, is alleged to have been invited to
attend this year's Bilderberg group meeting in Sintra. The television
presenter declined to make any comments to The News through her press

The News was, after three days of making phone calls and waiting, given
the following response: "Dr. Margarida Marante prefers not to respond (to
The News' allegations that she will be attending the Bilderberg meeting),
and with all due respect to our publication, she is very busy".

The secretary, apparently oblivious to the Bilderberg meeting, asked how
Bilderberg was spelt, though she admitted that her employer did not appear
surprised when told about the meeting and the interest of our newspaper,
adding that no further comment was forthcoming from Margarida Marante.




U.S. President Bill Clinton and the aging Pope John Paul II are found on a
"Partial Guest List" of individuals expected to attend the 1999 Bilderberg
meeting that will be taking place in Portugal June 3rd - June 6th. The
meeting is expected to include a globilization summit wherein nations that
cling to their sovereign identities will be denounced by its leadership.
