PEPIS#88 - 2007 Bilderberg participant list leaked

1. Bilderberg 2007 participant list leaked
2. The Economist magazine on the Bilderberg Conferences

Author Danny Estulin has managed to get hold of this year's
participant list BEFORE the event. Please circulate it to all your
National Press and broadcast media to give them as littyle excuse as
possible for ignoring argulblty the most important global political
event of the year.

This years' Bilderberg conference is the big one. If Kissinger and the
steering committee can convince the Turks, through threats and
bribery, to go for the NeoCon 'regime change' agenda for Iran we can
expect a further Middle Eastern bloodbath and Islamic genocide.

Let's hope and pray that the Turkish decision makers and political
classes are not that stupid. For anyone planning to travel to witness
the conference this year please do keep me informed over the weekend
and/or use the new(ish) Bilderberg forum.

Breaking news direct from the 2007 Bilderberg conference

So here this year's Bilderbergers! Here's hoping the Turkish police
will surround the hotel and arrest all the steering group members for
questioning while the Turkish Secret Service deal with the CIA.
Fingers crossed! And well done over-safe Danny Estulin. Nuff respect
for getting the leaked participant list BEFORE the conference - this
is unheard of.

The Economist magazine on the Bilderberg Conferences
Bilderberg - Ne plus ultra
BILDERBERG takes its name from a Dutch hotel where, in the early
1950s, the first meeting took place under the aegis of Prince
Bernhard. The occasion has outgrown the hotel, but the Dutch link
remains. Among several European royals who attend as occasional
guests, Queen Beatrix and her husband come regularly. A Dutch
professor who has brokered coalition governments into existence on her
behalf is one of the secretary-generals (the other, American, one
lives in San Francisco), and Bilderberg's tiny secretariat sits in The
Hague. The meetings now take place by informal rotation in countries
of the Atlantic community.
Some 100 or more attend, by invitation of a steering committee. The
meetings happen once a year, in the spring. They last 2.5 days
(Thursday night until Sunday lunch) and are held in varying but always
comfortable surroundings - in 1987 Lake Como, before that Gleneagles.
Apart from a half-day on the golf links or sleeping off the previous
night's dinner, morning and afternoon sessions fill up the time.
A mixture of able and distinguished folk attend - a sprinkling of
serving prime and cabinet ministers, central-bank governors, defence
and other experts. They talk, often to galvanising and fascinating
effect, about the main issues of the day - East-West relations, arms
control, deficits, debt, the Falklands, sanctions, whatever. Their
thoughts may not be repeated outside the meetings and never are. This
frustrates outsiders but helps 100 great and good people be frank with
each other, as does the fact that Bilderberg members are limited to
people of NATO and West European countries who know how to be kind or
rude to each other without causing such misunderstandings as would
occur if Indians, Fijians, Africans, Chinese or Japanese were also
Elite and discreet, Bilderberg has inevitably been talked of in hushed
tones by conspiracy theorists over the years. It needn't be. The lists
of attenders are published, as are the agendas, and before each
meeting the chairman (currently Lord Roll) holds a press conference at
which few journalists bother to turn up.
Where does the money come from? Not complicated. The steering-group
members raise from business the small sums necessary to keep the
organising secretariat going hand-to-mouth in The Hague. Members from
the host country raise enough money to pay for the hotel and
conference when it takes place on their home soil (they are allowed to
ask extra guests to make this money-raising easier). Participants pay
their own long-haul travel, but are usually shepherded as VIPs from
the nearest airport. They also pay expenses over and above the basic
bill for their hotel room - the Bilderberg custom being that a whole
hotel is booked for each meeting so that Bilderbergers may be alone
with each other, their words, their thoughts and, these days, their
security men.
When you have scaled the Bilderberg, you have arrived.
