The world famous, super-secret Bilderberg confab is this weekend. Arjun Walia of lewrockwell.com provides some color:
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other 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 subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march toward 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.”

The above statement comes from a 1991 Bilderberg group meeting in Baden, Germany. Bill Clinton also attended this meeting, I’m sure along with many other members of the elite class.
This is a global elite hub that gathers every single year, and whose meetings are highly secretive. Attendees include various heads of the private contractors that work with the military, intelligence agency higher ups, big bankers, and representatives from the IMF, the World Bank, the Trilateral Commission, and more.
As The Guardian points:
The secretive three-day summit of the political and economic elite kicks off on Thursday in heavily guarded seclusion at the Westfields Marriot, a luxury hotel a short distance from the Oval Office. The hotel was already on lockdown on Wednesday, and an army of landscapers have been busy planting fir trees around the perimeter, to protect coy billionaires and bashful bank bosses from any prying lenses.
As a result of independent journalists exposing what is happening here, the group has been forced to become a little more transparent. On this year’s agenda, the first topic of discussion is Donald Trump’s presidency.
