Secretive Meeting Of Elites Underway In Portugal
Even as Americans are growing increasingly skeptical that leaders are acting in their best interest, a group of well-connected political and business leaders are taking part in a shadowy meeting in Portugal over the weekend.
The list of topics set to be discussed at the Bilderberg summit includes many of the most pressing issues of the day, such as artificial intelligence, the banking crisis, China’s quest for world dominance, and the ongoing war in Ukraine.
As for the individuals invited to take part in the clandestine meeting, many of the names are controversial either on their own or due to the organizations they represent.
For example, World Economic Forum President Borge Brende will be among the prominent participants while critics across the U.S. and beyond accuse the organization he leads of attempting to bring about a devastating new world order.
Other notable figures taking part in the Lisbon meeting include Pfizer CEO Albert Boula, Goldman Sachs COO John Waldron, and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt. Sam Altman, whose company OpenAI created the powerful ChatGPT AI chatbot, is also on the guest list.
Democrat Stacey Abrams, a twice-failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate mired in scandals of her own, is among the many U.S. political operatives invited to participate.
Bilderberg meetings have been held for nearly 70 years and have been billed as efforts to lead discussions that impact America and Europe. The secretive nature of these summits, however, have long opened the organization up to rampant speculation about its true intentions.
Even the Bilderberg website outlines the steps participants take to keep their remarks and actions under wraps.
“The meetings are held under the Chatham House Rule, which states that participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s) nor any other participant may be revealed,” the site explains.
Furthermore, the group notes that “the participants take part as individuals rather than in any official capacity, and hence are not bound by the conventions of their office or by pre-agreed positions.”
Avoiding any official paper trail stemming from the annual meeting, the website concludes that there “is no detailed agenda, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued.”
