The Bilderberg Club: a secret society
of the richest and most influential people
conspiring to achieve a world government
The November-December, 2005 issue of the Kingston Eye Opener (Box 3514, Kingston, ON, Canada, K7L 5J9) published an interview of editor Geoff Matthews with Daniel Estulin, Communications Training Specialist, who wrote a book on the Bilderbergers:
could you please define Bilderberg for our readers.
Bilderberg is not a person, but an idea. It is an idea centred on the
perception of man as intrinsically evil. Humanity cannot gain its
freedom from synarchism unless it defeats the idealism that it
represents. It is the idea that creates the policies of state which rip
up the tallest constitutions and drag humanity into war from the highest
position of power. That is why it must be acknowledged that World War II
has not been won in real terms. A single man and his clique had been
brought down in this war at a cost of a hundred million lives lost, but
the idea behind them had not been defeated. The idea has now come to
roost in America, and has infested its platform of business, its
economy, its institutions for learning, and finally, its highest
position of government.
Who was the most prominent individual involved with the founding of
Without a doubt, Joseph Retinger, a 33rd degree mason. He was the
political aide to General Sikorski, and served for the London-based
Polish government-in-exile. In addition, at the age of 58, he
parachuted into German-occupied territory outside Warsaw for some
Due to his high-profile career, in the 1950s he was able to create
contacts with numerous high-ranking military officials and political
leaders. His main aim was to unite the world in peace. His peace
dividend was to be under the control of supranational, powerful
organisations. He believed that such organisations would be immune
from short-term ideological conflicts erupting between governments. To
Retinger, it was insignificant what dominated the economic ideology of
a country. He believed these differences could be brought into line by
powerful multinational organisations dictating and applying powerful
economic and military policies, thereby creating a union and a bond
between the nations.
Oh really!? I thought that it was Prince Bernhard of Holland who
actually founded the secret Club.
Bernhard was a poster boy. A pretty face and a facade. In 1952, Retinger
approached Bernhard with a proposal for a secret conference to involve
the NATO leaders in an open and frank discussion on international
affairs behind closed doors. Prince Bernhard, at the time, was an
important figure in the oil industry and held a major position in
Royal Dutch Petroleum (Shell Oil), as well as Société Générale de
Belgique — a powerful global corporation.
In which ways (people, institutions, etc.) are the decisions of the
Club “networked” and forwarded in the level of international
organizations, the media, banks, states and governments in a way that
they can be implemented?
You know, everywhere you look — government, big business, and any other
institution seeking to exercise power — the key is secrecy. Meetings
such as those of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and
Development (OECD), the G-8, World Trade Organisation, World Economic
Forum, Central Banks, the European Union Council of Ministers and the
EU Commission, EU summits, government cabinet meetings, numerous think
tanks, etc., are always conducted behind closed doors. The only
possible reason for this is that they don't want you and me to know
what they are really up to. That well worn excuse for keeping things
under wraps — “it is not in the public interest” really means
that it is not in the interest of the powers that be that the public
However there is, in addition, a network of private forums and meetings
that take place where the secrecy principle extends to the forums and
meetings themselves — by and large, we don't even know that they are
taking place, let alone what is being planned and discussed.
There's the World Economic Forum at Davos in January/February, the
Bilderberg and G8 meetings in June/July, and the IMF/World Bank annual
conference in September. A kind of international consensus emerges and
is carried over from one meeting to the next. But no one's really
leading it. This consensus becomes the background for G8 economic
communiqués; it becomes what informs the IMF when it imposes an
adjustment programme on Argentina; and it becomes what the US
President proposes to Congress.
With what other international centres of power/authority does the Club
cooperate and in what aspect?
Bilderberg controls the IMF, the World Bank, the UN, all the European
Central Banks. Every prominent European commissioner has at one time
or another attended a Bilderberger meeting. Every NATO general
secretary is a Bilderberger. You see what we are up against.
Are there any other centres of power/authority that are considered
opposite/rival to the Club? If yes, which are they and what do they
Bilderberg, in fact, is a foreign policy arm of an all-powerful and
completely unknown group called “The Committee of 300” whose
ancestors were the British East Indian Tea Company, whose main line of
work didn't have anything to do with selling tea but rather with
In fact, the entire world drug trade is controlled by the most powerful
man and a few women in the world. All of them belong to the Committee
of 300. I have spoken on several occasions with deep cover
intelligence officers, both in Europe and the US, and all of them have
given me a rough estimate of annual drug profit margins between US
$500-$700 billion. Most of this dirty money is recycled through all
the major stock markets, and then pocketed as a legitimate profit.
Who invites the people that attend the gatherings of the Bilderberg,
and what criteria do the guests have to fulfil in order to be invited?
Bilderberg, from its inception, has been administered by a small nucleus
of persons, appointed since 1954 by a committee of the wise men, which
is made up of a permanent chair, an American chair, European and an
American secretary and treasurer. The annual invitations are only sent
out to important and respected people who, through their special
knowledge, personal contacts and influence in national and
international circles, can amplify the objectives and resources of the
Nobody can buy their way into a Bilderberg meeting, although many
corporations have tried. The steering committee decides who to invite
— what the Guardian newspaper of London aptly calls a “Bilderberg
person”, that hasn't changed in 50 years of secret meetings — a
Fabian Socialist (Translation: Fabianism believes in what it describes
as “the democratic control of society in all its activities.” The
key word is control of the individual. This as being best achieved
through global government, a goal it shares with Communism) and a One
World Order enthusiast.
What means do they use in order to keep their activity silent and away
from the media?
Big time media is part of the world elite and with the slyness of a
slave, they don't need
to be told by the Bilderbergers to keep the meeting secret. They do it
voluntarily. The Washington Post, The New York Times, Grupo Prisa in
Spain, Le Monde, The Economist, the Wall Street Journal, Toronto Star,
the National Post to name just a few, fully realize the advantages of
cooperating with the Bilderbergers.
They also know what will happen if they are to “betray” the most
secret of secret societies. Newspapers live and die by the advertising
they take in. Do you know how simple it is for Rockefeller, the Prime
Minister of Canada, Etienne Davingnon, and other influential
Bilderbergers to pick up the phone and tell GE, Siemens, Mercedes,
Novartis, etc., to stop advertising in such and such media?
Actually, as all the biggest and the most powerful corporations in the
world belong to the Bilderbergers, they police themselves. For those
not entirely convinced what may happen to them, we have a case of
Richard Nixon being destroyed in the false Watergate crisis for the
entire world to see, as I explain in my new best seller on the
Or the case of Argentina being destroyed, again, for the whole world to
see by the New World Order in the Falkland's War because Argentina was
willing to sell nuclear power, the cleanest, cheapest, and best source
of energy to Mexico against the wishes of the Global Masters. So,
Kissinger gave the order to attack.
If the President of the US can be put out of business, or an independent
nation be subjugated, what chance, I ask you, does a newspaper have
against the all-powerful Bilderbergers? So, the big-time media follows
every direction and command without as much as a whimper.
What would you consider to be the more “curious coincidences” for
some of Bilderberger recruits?
The most dramatic example of a “useful recruit” was the obscure
governor of Arkansas, Bill Clinton, who attended his first Bilderberg
meeting at Baden Baden, Germany, in 1991. There, Clinton was told what
NAFFA (North American Free Trade Agreement) is by David Rockefeller,
and that he was to support it. The next year, he was elected
President. Tony Blair attended a Bilderberg meeting in 1993, became
party leader in July 1994, and became Prime Minister in May 1997. John
Edwards was invited to a Bilderberg meeting in 2004, several weeks
later to be “chosen” John Kerry's Vice Presidential candidate. The
fact that Edwards wasn't invited back this year suggests to me that
his political career is over by the way he was discarded as an old
shoe by the Bilderbergers.
What Canadians have participated in previous Bilderberg meetings?
There have been many over the years; this is just a partial list: Donald
S. MacDonald, ex-Finance Minister; Conrad Black, Ralph Klein, Israel
Asper of the CanWestCapital Group; Lloyd Axworthy, Isabel-Bassett,
Parl. Assistant Finance Minister of Ontario; Jean Chretien, Marshall
A. Cohen of Olympia & York; Stephane Dion, A.L. Flood, Chairman,
Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce; Louise Frechette, Deputy
Secretary-General, United Nations; David Frum from the National Post;
Peter C. Godsoe, Chairman and CEO, Bank of Nova Scotia; Allan E.
Gotlieb, former Ambassador to the US; Michael Harris; Donald J.
Johnston, Secretary-General, OECD; Preston Manning; Paul Martin;
Stephen Harper; etc.
What are some of the Bilderberger objectives?
Amongst some of their more ambitious plans are the creation of a One
World Government with a single globalized marketplace, policed by a
world army; a single global currency financially regulated by a world
bank; a universal church as an outlet to channel mankind's inherent
religious belief in the direction desired by the New World Order.
All other religions of the world will be destroyed; empowering
international bodies to completely destroy all national identity
through subversion from within. Only universal values will be allowed
to flourish in the future; creation of “the post-industrial
zero-growth society” (Translation: Zero growth is necessary to
destroy vestiges of prosperity and be able to divide the society into
owners and slaves. When there is prosperity, there is progress, which
makes repression a lot harder to execute) which is meant to bring an
end to all industrialization and the production of nuclear generated
electric power (except for the computer and service industries.)
The remaining Canadian and American industries will be exported to poor
countries such as Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Nicaragua, etc., where slave
labor is cheap. One of the principal objectives for NAFTA will then be
realized; empowering the United Nations until it becomes a demure, as
well as a de facto, world government. Advancing this goal by creating
a direct UN tax on “world citizens,” expanding NAFTA throughout
the Western Hemisphere as a prelude to creating an “American
Union” similar to the European Union; establishing NATO as the UN's
What are some of Bilderberger achievements?
Bilderberg proposed and decided to establish formal relations with China
before Nixon's administation made it publicly known policy. At a
meeting in Saltsjöbaden, Sweden, in 1973, Bilderbergers agreed to
increase the price of oil to $12 a barrel, a 350% jump, in order to
create economic chaos in the United States and Western Europe, as part
of the “softening up” policy.
In 1983, Bilderbergers got a secret promise out of the then
“ultraconservative” President Ronald Reagan to transfer $50
billion of American taxpayers' money to the Third World and communist
countries through its favourite conduits, the IMF and the World Bank,
in order to pay the interest the Bilderbergers owed on their loans to
the Western banks. That pledge was more than kept and became known as
the Brady Plan.
The Bilderberg-orchestrated decision of getting rid of Margaret Thatcher
as British Prime Minister, because she opposed the wilful hand-over of
British sovereignty to the European Super State designed by the
Bilderbergers. And incredulously, we all watched as her own party sold
her out in favour of the Bilderberg poodle — John Major.
In 1985, Bilderbergers were ordered to give full support to the Strategic
Defence Initiative (Star Wars), long before it became the official
policy of a US government, grounding it on the premise that it would
grant unlimited riches to the Masters of the Universe.
At their 1990 meeting at Glen Cove, Long Island, in New York, they
decided that taxes had to be raised to pay more towards the debt owed
to the International Bankers. Bilderberg ordered President [George]
Bush Sr. to increase taxes in 1990, and watched him sign off of the
tax-hiking “budget agreement” that lost him the election.
The multimillion dollar sale of Ontario Hydro, whose owner at the time
was the Canadian Government, was discussed for the first time at the
Bilderberg meeting in King City, Toronto, Canada, in 1996. Shortly
after, Ontario Hydro was broken up into five independent companies and
Leaked reports from the 2002 meeting stated that the war in Iraq had been
delayed until March 2003 at a time when every newspaper im the world
was expecting the attack to be launched in the summer of 2002.
Splintering of Canada
Splintering of Canada. This theme was originally scheduled for discussion
in 1997, but unexpected Bilderberg media coverage in the Toronto Star,
Canada's leading daily during the 1996 meeting in King City, forced
the globalists to postpone their plan to 2007.
Really!!! I think our readers would love to hear the details of the
plan to destroy Canada!
The long and short of it is that the Bilderbergers planned the
destruction of Canada through the Quebec referendum which they
themselves organised, which also ties into a billion dollar scheme
they concocted to steal Canada's water supply through the Grand Canal
project. Of course, to destroy Canada, these vile people needed NAFTA
and GATT as a precursor to US-Canadian continental union by 2007.
That's the intended result. However, as you well know, not every plan,
no matter how brilliantly set up, can be executed to perfection.
Do you remember Quebec's supposedly “authentic” independence drive in
1995? It was all a hoax. Through my intelligence sources, I discovered
that Quebec was to separate from Canada abruptly via a Unilateral
Declaration of Independence, orchestrated by the Rockefeller-controlled
Canadian politicians. Most of the key political figures on both sides,
though apparently in “opposition” to each other, are connected to
David Rockefeller such as Brian Mulroney, ex Prime Minister; Lucien
Bouchard, separatist PQ leader brought into politics by Brian Mulroney;
Preston Manning also controlled by the Rockefeller-Bilderberg
combines; Jean Chretien, ex-Prime Minister, liberal party, controlled
by David Rockefeller.)
Let me give you an example:
a leading strategist for former Prime Minister Chretien's election
campaign. He was also an Executive Vice-President of Power Corp. and
Paul Desmarais' right-hand man.
His brother is Bob
Rae, ex-NDP Premier of Ontario (who is now running for the
leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada), who appointed Maurice
Strong to the chairmanship of Ontario Hydro, which he
proceeded to dramatically cut in both skilled human resources amd
generating capacity (to provide a future need for power from James
former Canada's Prime Minister, rose through the ranks at Power Corp.,
mentored by Paul Desmarais. He also attended the 1996 meeting of the-Bilderberg
Group where the dismantlement of Ontario Hydro is hotly debated.
daughter, France, is married to Andre Desmarais, son of Paul Desmarais,
chairman of Power Corporation. Chretien's “advisor, counsellor and
strategist” for the past 30 years has been Mitchell
Sharp, who brought Chretien into politics when he was
Finance Minister. Sharp has been, since 1981, Vice-Chairman for North
America of David Rockefeller's Trilateral Commission. Chretien, like
so many lackeys, attended the 1996 meeting of the Bilderberg Group in
King City, Toronto.
However, there is much more.
former leader of the Quebec Liberal party and Quebec Premier in 1994,
also rose through the ranks of Power Corp.
needs no introduction. He is one of the most hated Prime Ministers in
Canada's history. He was also a lawyer and a lobbyist for Power
Corporation and a member of the board of Archer-Daniels-Midland, a
Rockefeller-owned conglomerate, which was headed by Dwayne Andreas
who, like Rockefeller himself, is also a member of the Bilderberg
Finally, you have Mike
Harris, former Premier of Ontario, close friend of George
Bush and Paul Martin. Harris, like his colleague Ralph Klein of
Alberta, is also a Bilderberger.
So, the former federal Conservative Party (via Mulroney), the Liberal
Party (via Chretien) and the NDP (via Rae) are all tightly connected
to... Paul Desmarais and Power Corp. And we have the Prime Minister,
the Finance Minister, and the Prime Minister's key aide all tightly
connected to... Paul Desmarais and Power Corp.

If you have ever wondered why the same experts and politicians, though
apparently representing opposing ideologies, always seem to appear on
news, political debates, and current event programs, all pushing the
same line, now you have the answer.
Who would benefit from Quebec's separation?
The answer is the Bilderberg Group. The ultimate outcome was a planned
Continental Union of the U.S. and Canada by the early 21st century, in
which both would be regionalized. This would necessitate a new
Constitution for the resulting United States of North America. A
fundamental piece of this jigsaw puzzle was a little known “Grand
Canal” water-transfer project, a scheme estimated to cost between
$80 billion and $130 billion.
Never heard of the continent-wide “Grand Canal” project?
GRAND being an acronym for Great Recycling and Northern Development
— envisages a dike across James Bay and the creation of a new
fresh-water lake through the impoundment of rivers that now empty into
the bay. This fresh water would then be pumped back to the Great Lakes
basin and beyond. (See
the article “The planned destruction of Canada”
March-April, 2002 issue of Michael.)
Not surprising — the Bilderbergers, the Canadian Government, and the
media whores such as Conrad Black and Robert S. Prichard, president of
Torstar Media Group (Toronto Star) and a 2005 Bilderberg attendee,
aren't too keen to publicize it!
When I found out about Rockefeller financing every Canadian politician, I
went back and re-read everything I could get my hands on regarding
NAFTA. There is a lot of talk in NAFTA about “free flowing water
being free.” It is obvious, isn't it! Then, why
is it in the document? Because when you put up
dikes, you can suddenly charge for the water.
Think of money. If you had your choice, if you could pull a genie out of
a bottle, and the genie could grant three wishes, what would your
three wishes be? Remember your goal is to make
the most money possible? Number one, give me
control over the sun. Number two, give me control over the air. Number
three, give me control over water. Now, leaving our little genie
aside, we know we cannot control the sun, nor can we control the air, but
we can control water. On the scale of things that are
required for human life, it is the most important element that can be
The Bilderbergers thought they could get away with another media
blackout. Not to be. When Canadian media got wind of it, it quickly
spread like wildfire. A trickle turned into a torrential downpour, and
Canadians were on to them. It is one thing not to report the news,
quite another to be an accomplice in the willful destruction of your
own country. On record, that was their worst defeat ever.
