The heads of the two most powerful financial empires of the world 97-year-old David Rockefeller, and 76-year-old Lord Jacob Rothschild, decided to combine a large portion of their assets. Although the participants of the transaction preferred to operate in an environment far away from publicity, news of it still leaked out to the media. An influential and well-informed source on big business affairs in Britain, The Financial Times, reported that after long negotiations and secret meetings, the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds “seem to have decided to form a fundamental and long-term union, joining their forces”. This is all the more sensational because these two families have keenly competed in global financial markets for nearly 150 years. The fact that age-old enemies formed an alliance demonstrates the anxiety felt by the captains of capitalism, as they realise the depth and seriousness of the current threats to the global economy.
Combining the power of these two powerful financial groups is actually a continuation of a policy that started over half a century ago. In May 1954, the then-heads of the same two families, Edmond de Rothschild and Laurence Rockefeller, met in the Bilderberg Hotel in Amsterdam in an atmosphere of great secrecy. The most influential financiers and politicians conferred on a private agenda. Experts believe that they outlined the basis of the political and economic policies followed by the Western powers in the decades ahead. Since then, these secret gatherings are held annually. This year, the secret meeting of financial and political bigwigs lasted from 31 May to 2 June in Chantilly VA. As always, the deliberations and their outcomes were shrouded in mystery.
Members of the “club” still shun “daylight” and any publicity. We only know that bankers, prime ministers, ex-presidents, and other famous world leaders meet away from prying eyes, usually in expensive hotels and luxury resorts. All come alone, without advisers and translators. Of course, the press isn’t present, since no outsiders know where and when these secret meetings occur. The authoritative Encyclopaedia Britannica stated that these meetings comprise what’s called the “Bilderberg Group”:
The meeting takes place in an informal setting, and those who have an impact on national and international politics discuss important issues. After each meeting, an unofficial “Top Secret” report is distributed to past and current participants, ensuring the continuity of the Group’s policies.
Some politicians, including well-known figures, have called the Bilderberg Group a world government. That’s an exaggeration, but the fact that an informal body, operating on a continuous basis and surrounded by secrecy, determines much of the political and economic direction in the West, we can hardly doubt. A new alliance of the Rockefeller and Rothschild clans… the Founding Fathers of the Bilderberg Group… when a global crisis threatens the foundations of the post-war economic model of the West, is intended, as they say, to “close ranks” and increase the influence of a secret community of Western bankers and politicians in the course of affairs in world economic and political policy.
