A review of The True Story Of The Bilderberg Group, By Daniel

It is difficult to re-educate people who have been brought up on
nationalism to the idea of relinquishing part of their sovereignty to
a supra-national body.

~Bilderberg Group founder, Prince Bernhard~

As a rhetorical question, can someone please explain to me how it is
that progressive liberals such as John Edwards and Hillary Clinton, as
well as do-gooder humanitarians with multiple social projects ongoing
such as the Rockefellers and every Royal House in Europe, can
perennially attend Bilderberg meetings apparently knowing that the
final objective of this despicable group of hoodlums is a fascist One
World Empire?

~Daniel Estulin (P.318)~

Daniel Estulin

is a Madrid-based journalist and an investigative reporter who took
on the daunting and dangerous task of researching the Bildeberg
Group, and who offers his findings in The True Story Of The
Bilderberg Group, recently published by Trine Day

. Equally intriguing as his harrowing tales of being followed and
nearly killed on a couple of occasions while working on the book, is
the manner in which Estulin connects the dots between the Bilderberg
Group, world events, notable politicians and corporate tycoons and
the two other secretive monsters of the ruling elite, the Council on
Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Trilateral Commission (TC). The
project lasted fifteen years and was motivated by Estulin's curiosity
about how it is that the mainstream media has never covered in depth
the meetings of the Bilderberg Group whose combined wealth exceeds
the combined wealth of all U.S. citizens.

What Estulin's book makes clear is that the group, along with the
CFR and TC, has become a shadow government whose top priority is to
erase the sovereignty of all nation-states and supplant them with
global corporate control of their economies under the surveillance of
"an electronic global police state." (xv)

The author emphasizes that not all members of the group are "bad"
people, and he implies that membership is structured somewhat like
concentric circles in a target scheme with in inner core and various
levels of relationship between that core and the outer circles of
membership. Almost every famous player in politics and finance in the
world is a member of one of the three organizations mentioned above,
and their political affiliations range from liberal to conservative,
for example, George W. Bush, George Soros, Gerald Ford, George
McGovern, Jimmy Carter. Of this private club, Estulin says:

This parallel world remains unseen in the daily struggles of most of
humanity, but, believe me, it is there: a cesspool of duplicity and
lies and double-speak and innuendo and blackmail and bribery. It is a
surreal world of double and triple agents, of changing loyalties, of
professional psychotic assassins, brainwashed black ops agents,
soldiers of fortune and mercenaries, whose primary sources of income
are the dirtiest and most despicable government-run subversive
missions-the kind that can never be exposed.(15)

This world, according to Estulin, is so perverse and evil that "it
has left an indelible mark on my soul". (16) How not? Because the
Bilderberg Group and its two other triplets, the CFR and the TC have
set about to loot the entire planet. Their members run the central
banks of the world and are poised to control discount rates,
money-supply, interest rates, gold prices, and which countries
receive or do not receive loans. Membership is by invitation only,
many of the earliest members being handpicked, not from right-wing
groups but from among none other than the Fabian Socialists who
ultimately supported global government.

Another chilling quote Estulin includes is from William Shannon:

The Bilderbergers are searching for the age of post-nationalism:
when we won't have countries, but rather regions of the Earth
surrounded by Universal values. That is to say, a global economy; one
World government (selected rather than elected) and a universal
religion. To assure themselves of reaching these objectives, the
Bilderbergers focus on a greater technical approach' and less
awareness on behalf of the general public.


In 1991 Bill Clinton attended the Bilderberg Conference in
Baden-Baden where Estulin asserts that he was "anointed" to the U.S.
presidency, and shortly thereafter he took an unexpected, unannounced
trip to Moscow. It appears, says Estulin, that he was sent there to
get his KGB student-era, anti-Vietnam war files "buried" before he
announced his candidacy for president which happened some
two-and-a-half months later. Today, Clinton is a member of all three
groups: Bilderberg, CFR, and TC. Hillary Clinton is a member of the
Bilderberg Group.

Estulin points out that "almost all of the presidential candidates
for both parties have belonged to at least one of these
organizations, many of the U.S. congressmen and senators, most major
policy-making positions, especially in the field of foreign
relations, much of the press, most of the leadership of the CIA, FBI,
IRS, and many of the remaining governmental organizations in
Washington. CFR members occupy nearly all White House cabinet
positions."(80) When one considers that most prominent members of
mainstream media are also members of what Edith Kermit Roosevelt,
granddaughter of Theodore Roosevelt called "this legitimate Mafia",
how can we assert that Americans obtain their news from independent

For example, The News Hour with Jim Leher is the cornerstone of
PBS's programming. Leher is a CFR member, and when one examines the
funding of the news hour by: Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) whose
chairman Dwayne Andreas was a member of the Trilateral Commission;
Pepsico, whose CEO Indra Krishnamurthy Nooyi is a Bilderberger and TC
Executive Committee member; and Smith Barney which is interlocked with
Citigroup, a global financial services company that is a member of the
Bilderberg Group, the CFR, and the TC, what kind of "news" should one
expect from Leher's News Hour? Consider also that many of the
journalists on the News Hour: Paul Gigot, David Gergen, William
Kristol, and William Safire are members of one or more of the three
groups. (153)

Likewise, when we consider the membership in one or more of these
groups of almost every American president since the inception of
these organizations, we can no longer pretend that any Democratic or
Republican presidential candidate offers the American people an
alternative to ruling elite global hegemony.

In fact, Estulin's research reveals that "the Council on Foreign
Relations creates and delivers psycho-political operations by
manipulating people's reality through a tactic of deception',
placing Council members on both sides of an issue. The deception is
complete when the public is led to believe that its own best
interests are being served while the CFR policy is being carried

And what happens if the "anointed ones" become too autonomous? One
chapter in the book, "The Watergate Con-Game", answers that question.
In it Estulin suggests that Richard Nixon was set up by the Council on
Foreign Relations of which he was a member because of his
insubordination and unwillingness to submit to the shadow government.
Presumably, Nixon's demise was carefully crafted to demonstrate to
subsequent Chief Executives the price they would pay for disregarding
the agenda of those who anointed them.


In the book's final pages, Estulin's research waxes increasingly
relevant to the present moment in history. He asks: "Why would David
and other U.S. Trilateralists, Bilderbergers and the CFR members
want to dismantle the industrial might of the United States?" (184).
He then launches into a summary of the economic history of the
twentieth century and makes one of the most powerful statements of
the entire book: "What we have witnessed from this cabal' is the
gradual collapsing of the U.S. economy that began in the 1980s."

In case you haven't noticed, this "gradual collapse of the U.S.
economy" is no longer gradual, and what Estulin is asserting confirms
a great deal of the assertions

made by Catherine Austin Fitts that the current housing bubble
explosion/credit crunch/mortgage meltdown has its roots in the 1980s.
James Howard Kunstler has also written recently in his blog entitled
"Shock and Awe

" that the great American yard sale has begun. In other words, as an
engineered economic meltdown drives hundreds of thousands and
eventually millions of businesses and individuals into bankruptcy,
key players in the Big Three ruling elite organizations can buy up
the train wreck left behind for pennies on the dollar-a brilliant
fast-track strategy for owning the world.

In the final months of 2007 we are witnessing the stupendous success
of the Big Three's strategy for planetary economic hegemony as the
cacophony of their carefully engineered global economic cataclysm
reverberates across America and around the world. It was never about
buyers who didn't read the fine print when taking out liar loans. It
was always about silver-tongued, ruling elite politicians and central
bankers, anointed by the shadow government, who ultimately and
skillfully stole and continue to steal governments from people and
replace them with transnational corporations.

No one could have said it better than David Rockefeller, founder of
the Trilateral Commission, a Bilderberg member and board member of
the Council On Foreign Relations in his Memoirs:

Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the
best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me
as internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world
to build a more integrated global political and economic structure-one
world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am
proud of it.

If you want to know who really runs the world and the lengths to
which they will go to establish their globalist hegemony, you must
read Estulin's well-documented The True Story of The Bilderberg
