The 2009 Bilderberg Group Conference will be held at the five-star Nafsika Astir Palace Hotel in Vouliagmeni, Greece, May 14-17, according to author Daniel Estulin.
Insiders have told Estulin that rooms have been booked and flight plans made. He has also confirmed the location and dates with sources in Greece.
Estulin is the world's foremost investigative authority on this annual secretive and exclusive assembly, having investigated and infiltrated their meetings for over 10 years. His books and reporting have helped to bring the powerful group out of the shadows, even directly affecting the very conduct and timing of the meetings . . . and encapsulating them in an even deeper shroud of secrecy.
The Bilderberg Group started meeting in 1954, with funding from the CIA, to gather together the top Western bankers, politicians, media barons, corporate CEOs and European royalty in annual gatherings for frank discussions on important issues of the day.
Promoting the first edition of his best-selling book, The True Story of the Bilderberg Group, Daniel came to the United States in the fall of 2007 and told audiences about the upcoming housing mess and resulting financial turmoil, with many homeowners owing far more than their properties were worth. On a similar tour in the spring of 2008, he announced that we were just a few months from financial calamity. These predictions were based upon his understanding of the international maneuvers of the Bilderberg Group. Though the people responded, the press was largely a no-show.
The same press then failed to report the year's largest gathering of elites: the royalty, bankers, CEOs, media bigwigs and high government officials at the 57th annual Bilderberg meeting in June 2008. Daniel's coverage of that meeting provides additional material for the new North American Union edition of The True Story of the Bilderberg Group, which has sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide in 48 languages.
According to Estulin's sources, here are a few of the talking points and concerns for this year's meeting:
- The future of the US dollar and US economy: The plan is for the Bilderberg Group players, through their allies in Washington and Wall Street to continue to deceive millions of savers and investors who believe the hype about the supposed up-turn in the economy. They are about to be set up for massive losses and searing financial pain in the months ahead. The bank stress tests now being conducted by Washington are little more than a shameless hoax based on the irrational assumption that the economy won't get as bad as it already is!
- US unemployment: Solutions and assumptions. (Stated as such in the pre-meeting booklet sent out to attendees.)
Bilderberg is quietly assuming that US unemployment numbers will hover around 14 percent by the end of this year, far higher than the official numbers released by the US government.
- Depression or a prolonged stagnation? (Stated as such in the pre-meeting booklet sent out to attendees.) Bilderberg is looking at two options: Either a prolonged, agonizing depression that dooms the world to decades of stagnation, decline, and poverty . . . or an intense-but-shorter depression that paves the way for a new sustainable economic world order, with less sovereignty but more efficiency.
- There will be a final push for the enactment of the Lisbon Treaty, pending on the Irish voting YES on the treaty in Sept or October. One of their concerns is addressing and neutralizing the anti-Lisbon treaty movement, called Libertas, led by Declan Ganley. One of the Bilderberger planned moves is to use a whispering campaign in the US media suggested that Ganley is being funded by arms dealers in the US linked to the US military.
