The Secretive Bilderberg Group Is About To Meet - Here's Why That Matters

Those that feel there’s a secretive group of power brokers behind the scenes that are pulling the strings to suit their agendas are often dismissed as conspiracy theorists, but the fact remains that there are secretive groups out there that include elite global power brokers among their ranks. That could certainly be nothing more than mere coincidence, but it does give one pause. One of those organizations is known as the Bilderberg Group, which is in the midst of a four-day meeting in Chantilly, Virginia.

As the Daily Mail shares, 131 people in total will be attending, and the guest list includes bankers, business titans, members of European royalty and politicians. Although the agenda is on the hush-hush side, it’s expected that topics of conversation will include the future of the European Union, transatlantic relations and a state of the union on the Trump administration. Outside of that, that’s about all we’ll ever know about what’s discussed, as no minutes are kept and no reports are released upon the conclusion of the meeting.

News outlets - outside of a select few - are also prohibited from attending, so that just adds to the intrigue. Among the luminaries expected to be in attendance are Google chairman Eric Schmidt, NATO Secretary Jens Stoltenberg, former CIA Director John Brennan and Carlyle Group’s David Rubenstein. In short, if you’re not a major heavy hitter, your invitation didn’t get lost in the mail.

Other topics on the agenda could include Russia, China, globalization, nuclear weapons and the general dissemination of information in today’s day and age. The group has met every year since 1954, and it was initially established as a forum that would keep the conversation rolling between Europe and North America. There has been a whole host of conspiracy theories attached to the group through the years, and the vast majority of them point to the group having the desire to create a one-world government.

While those that don’t buy conspiracy theories view such talk as hogwash, there’s plenty of food for thought that gives rise to such theories. For example, a number of political candidates through the years - most recently 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton - have expressed a desire for a "world without borders." Some observers take that as a sign that the conspiracy theories about a one-world government aren’t really that outlandish, especially when you consider how many countries are standing down on matters of immigration in recent times.

Of course, the group could just be a collection of like-minded folks that travel in elite circles. When you reach a certain level of power, it can be tough to get together with the neighbors for a weekly bridge game or whatnot. Power attracts power, so perhaps this is just an opportunity for members of the global elite to let their hair down among company they can trust.

In any event, if the group is really meeting up so that they can pull the strings even further, we’ll have no idea about it until it’s too late to stop it.
