When it comes to being a member of a historic secret society, the Bilderberg Group is one that looks undeniably appealing. The Bilderberg Group members list has included some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world - a coalition of men and women who meet once a year to talk about the biggest issues facing the planet. Established in 1954 to encourage cooperation between North American and European political leaders, economic experts, and powerful figures in industry, academia, and media, the Bilderberg Group has been masked in secrecy for over half a century.
But what is the real Bilderberg agenda? The secrecy surrounding the Bilderberg Group has led to countless conspiracy theories about who its members are, what they intend to do, and whether or not they can be trusted. Are they a group of well-intended and well-informed elites or are they really part of a larger Illuminati plot to take over the world? Nobody knows for certain but here's some of the most outrageous facts and theories about the role they play every day without you even knowing it.
The Bilderberg Group May Have Influenced Iran To Align With Russia And China
In the minds of some outsiders, the Bilderberg Group has gone too far and the world is reacting. The lack of confidence in the European Union is one symptom of the Bilderberg Group's over-reaching plan to bring together North America and Europe. The Group's ties to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), which was outspokenly against Russia's treatment of the Ukraine in 2014, led to Russia aligning itself with China and Iran in retaliation. This, in turn, led to a security agreement between the three countries, the possibility of a Russia-China oil pipeline, and in the end - if the international pressure is strong enough - cause the Group to give into Iran in the interest of ending the "Eurasian anti-West Alliance."
The Bilderberg Group Has Been Accused Of Spreading Disease To Reduce The World's Population
Because of the Bilderberg Group's perceived connections with Nazis, eugenics, and even Chinese Communism, its been long believed that one of their goals is to reduce the population of the planet by any means necessary. Alex Jones, of InfoWars fame, accused Bill Gates, a Bilderberg Group member, of distributing "vaccines" that actually prevented women from carrying viable pregnancies while author Brad Olson accused the Bilderberg Group of developing diseases like AIDS and Ebola to kill mass numbers of people. With far fewer people on the planet, the Bilderberg Group would certainly have a much easier time establishing their New World Order.
Their Secrecy Has Led To Theories That They're Part Of The Illuminati
The Illuminati, probably the most popular group associated with conspiracies in the world, are thought to be directly connected to the Bilderberg Group. One segment of the Illumaniti also believes that there are a species of human-reptile hybrids running the world, which feeds into those theories when it comes to Bilderberg, but the secrecy surrounding the Bilderberg Group alone is enough to cause associations with the famed cabal.
The locations of the Bilderberg Group meetings are known but the conversations that take place among members are highly classified as are the actual attendees. The group functions under the Chatham House Rule, meaning "participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed." The Bilderberg group releases the names of known attendees but there's no certainty they're revealing everyone present.
The Rules Are Explicit About Who Can And Can't Attend Meetings
When it comes to the Bilderberg Group's meetings themselves, there are more rules than just the Chatham House Rule about identity and confidentiality. During its annual meeting: "the invited guests must come alone; no wives, girlfriends, husbands or boyfriends. Personal assistants (meaning security, bodyguards, CIA or other secret service protectors) cannot attend the conference and must eat in a separate hall. (Also) The guests are explicitly forbidden from giving interviews to journalists” or divulge anything that goes on in meetings. Host governments provide overall security to keep away outsiders."
When the group met in Chantilly, VA, in 2017, the Westfields Marriott Hotel was locked down and a series of trees and other shrubbery were planted to shield the event. In 2015, when the group met in Austria, the security was just as tight but it didn't prevent protestors from making their presence known, something that happens every year.
