    Default Bilderberg Meeting/Canada/VIP's Discreet 'B'

    VIPs' arrivals marked by a discreet 'B'
    Mayeda and Glen McGregor - The Ottawa Citizen; with files from Citizen News Services Published: Friday, June 09, 2006

    Greeted at the airport by limousine drivers holding single-letter "B" signs, global luminaries such as Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands began quietly slipping into Ottawa yesterday for the annual gathering of the ultra-secretive Bilderberg Group.

    Over the next three days at the Brookstreet Hotel in Kanata, they and other prominent political and business leaders from North America and Europe are expected to discuss issues such as the security threat posed by Iran and the direction of oil markets.

    The group's discreet approach was evident as attendees arrived yesterday at the Ottawa Airport.

    Outside the airport, a phalanx of limousines lined up to ferry guests to the Brookstreet, where security guards with ear pieces kept watch over the barricaded entrance to the hotel parking lot.

    Limos were also dispatched to the nearby Shell Aerocentre to retrieve participants arriving on private aircraft. Some attendees had the single-letter "B" on their luggage tags.

    Approached by a Citizen reporter upon his arrival, former U.S. defence policy adviser Richard Perle shot down criticism about the secrecy of the group's meetings. "It's a private organization," he said. He denied the charge, advanced by Bilderberg critics, that the organization crafts public policy behind closed doors. "It discusses public policy," he stressed.
    Mr. Perle also dismissed suggestions that the group's heavy representation from the oil industry gives it influence over energy prices. "If it did, I'd be trading on oil futures," he said.

    A former assistant secretary of defence to president Ronald Reagan, Mr. Perle is still considered an influential adviser in U.S. conservative circles. He advised President George W. Bush and is said to be a close friend of Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

    In 2003, he publicly chastised the Canadian government for refusing to send troops to Iraq and warned that "lame-duck" prime minister Jean Chretien would be embarrassed once weapons of mass destruction were found.

    Also seen arriving yesterday were Jorma Ollila, chairman of Royal Dutch Shell, Egil Myklebust, chairman of Scandinavian Airlines, World Bank president James Wolfenson, and Frank McKenna, former New Brunswick premier and ex-Canadian ambassador to the U.S.

    According to an unsigned press release sent by fax yesterday, presumably by Bilderberg organizers, attendees will also include New York Governor George Pataki, deputy prime minister of Iraq Ahmad Chalabi, the heads of Coca-Cola, Credit Suisse, the Royal Bank of Canada, a number of media moguls, and cabinet ministers from Spain and Greece.

    The release confirmed this year's meeting will deal with energy issues, Iran, the Middle East, terrorism, immigration, Russia, European-American relations and Asia.

    "The meeting is private to encourage frank and open discussion," said the release. "There will be no press conference."

    Security was relatively light at the airport, with only a few uniformed police on hand.

    But at the Brookstreet, the parking lot in front of the hotel was completely emptied and entrances to the lot were barricaded. A tow truck removed any vehicles that did not comply.

    Private security guards in black blazers guarded various points around the hotel perimeter, including the golf course behind the Brookstreet. A number of Ottawa police officers also provided security.

    Guests who stayed at the hotel on Wednesday night were asked to check out by 8:30 a.m. yesterday, several hours earlier than usual. The hotel is closed through Sunday.

    The sidewalk in front of the hotel has become an improvised campground for conspiracy theorists and dedicated Bilderberg watchers, few more colourful than James P. Tucker Jr., a 71-year-old writer who says he has covered every Bilderberg conference for the last 30 years.

    Mr. Tucker, who recently published a book called the Bilderberg Diary, said he spent several days this week casing out the hotel, plying Brookstreet bartenders for information over glasses of tomato juice.

    "For years they denied their very existence," said Mr. Tucker, dressed in a black pinstriped suit and straw hat. "Well, they certainly influence the world."

    Daniel Estulin, who flew from Spain to cover this week's conference, is such a regular on the circuit that he is on a first-name basis with Bilderberg security officials.

    "Their main objective is creating a world government ruled by an elite group of people whose main objective is to control all the natural resources of the planet," said Mr. Estulin, who brought a small camera to snap photos of the Bilderbergers as they arrived in dark luxury sedans with tinted windows. Some of the sedans had sheets of paper bearing the trademark "B" on the dashboard.
    But the Bilderbergers also attracted curious onlookers who only recently learned about the event through the media.

    "There are all sorts of gaps in what politicians say and do. This is just another example of the circumventing of the democratic process," said Cindy Mogensen, who took a break from work yesterday to check out the conference.

    Neocon Prince of Darkness Sighted at Bilderberg Meeting
    Friday June 09th 2006, 5:49 pm
    According to Megan Gillis, writing for the Ottawa Sun, the Straussian neocon “Prince of Darkness,” Richard Perle, is in Ottawa, possibly to attend the Bilderberg Group meeting held there, along with the standard fare of neolibs and globalists, including “David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Queen Beatrix of Holland, former N.B. premier Frank McKenna and a host of other bigwigs,” as Gillis puts it. As Perle is a prime shaker and mover behind the “clash of civilizations” agenda to “reshape” the Muslim Middle East (that is to say, shock and awe it, by way of bunker-buster and depleted uranium, into submission), it makes perfect sense for him to be on the Bilderberger roster, especially now that Iran is next up on the target list.
    It appears the globalists are at odds on Iran. “I think of war with Iran as the ending of America’s present role in the world. Iraq may have been a preview of that, but it’s still redeemable if we get out fast. In a war with Iran, we’ll get dragged down for 20 or 30 years. The world will condemn us. We will lose our position in the world,” Zbigniew Brzezinski told Vanity Fair earlier this year. I don’t know if Ziggy will attend the Bilderberg meeting, but chances are the Soros side of the neolib order will attempt to convince the neocons, and thus their sock puppet Bush, to not unleash the Pentagon’s fury against the Islamic nation, not that the traditional neolibs have any love for Iran or its people, but rather they likely believe Brzezinski is correct.
    However, now that the Straussian neocons control the levers over at the Pentagon, with their man Rumsfeld at the top of the organizational pyramid, chances are Iran will be lined up in the cross hairs, and before the coming mid-term election. “Because of his chronic unpopularity, Bush is already in a complicated political predicament,” writes Dr. Michael Carmichael, a public affairs consultant and broadcaster. “Bush is facing the loss of his American political hegemony in the midterm elections this November. If Bush loses even one house of Congress, he will face the immediate threat of official probes led by partisan special prosecutors and a rising demand for his impeachment. In his game of poker with Ahmadinejad, Bush has nothing to lose by upping the ante and wrapping himself in the American flag while dropping a massive bombardment onto the primary vortex of his Axis of Evil, Iran.”
    Of course, official probes and impeachment are, at this point, little more than wishful thinking, as few Democrats have the guts to take down Bush. Nothing short of a clean sweep of the corporate and globalist whorehouse on the Potomac will squash the neocon agenda, now moving along at a steady clip. However, if the Democrats do indeed win come November—and this is less than assured, as the neocons are now seasoned at throwing elections—they may pitch a few speed bumps and slow down the rush to shock and awe Iran into submission, and thus, as Carmichael notes, the neocons may push hard for an attack before the election.
    “Questioned by a largely supportive audience of admiring students willing to attend a late lecture on a Friday night [at the at the Oxford Union earlier this week], Perle touched upon the diplomacy between the West and Iran in the most insipid terms he could muster,” Carmichael writes. “Taking into account the latest diplomatic developments, he gave his Oxford audience the impression that the outcome remains obscure in spite of the fact that he is one of the principle architects—and the sternest—of the Iran negotiations.” Of course, as we know, there is nothing “obscure” about the path the neocons are traveling—they intend to sabotage all negotiations, as they did previously in regard to Iraq, and put the “military option on the table.” In fact, as Carmichael notes, citing former CIA analyst Ray McGovern’s comments on Alex Jones’ radio program, there “is already one carrier task force there in the Gulf, two are steaming toward it at the last report I have at least—they will all be there in another week or so. The propaganda has been laid, the aircraft carriers are in place, it doesn’t take much to fly the bombers out of British and US bases—cruise missiles are at the ready, Israel is egging us on” (see Former CIA Analyst Says Iran Strike Set For June Or July, by Paul Joseph Watson).
    “McGovern’s predictions may be unfolding already,” Carmichael continues. “The London police raid that coincided with Perle’s visit to Britain netted two men suspected of terrorist plotting to build a massive chemical bomb. But, after four days of excruciating forensic examination of their premises, the police found no evidence of bomb-building activities. Whether this ’swoop’ was staged or not remains to be seen, but this episode resonates with an official campaign to ratchet up the public concern about terrorism. The non-productive raid has produced a predictable backlash among the local residents who are demanding some form of official confirmation that the raid was based on credible evidence rather than a melange of Islamophobic paranoia.” In addition, it appears the Canadians are onboard with the neocon brand of “Islamophobic paranoia” (or rather calculated fear-mongering), as a ludicrous terrorist plot, an obvious set-up by the RCMP, demonstrates. All it will take now is for a sincere terrorist attack of the sort unrolled last summer in London to get the ball rolling and the bombing sorties unleashed from flat-top decks.
    “Exactly as Richard Perle intimated to the BBC, the world is witnessing the machinations in a game of geopolitical poker. The stakes are high. In spite of his perceived weakness, George Bush holds a very strong hand, The White House, the Pentagon, the Supreme Court and both houses of Congress. Yet his political weakness with the American public is the primary factor motivating him to launch a pre-emptive attack against Iran. With his approval rating falling into the low 30s, Bush has too little—if anything—to lose to worry about current public opinion.”
    Dare I say Bush and the neocons don’t give a whit about the American public? As even a superficial examination of the Straussian neocon ideology reveals, the neocons have nothing but contempt for the American people, who they consider clueless peons, little more than expendable pawns in their global game of domination, beginning in the Middle East. As I have noted here repeatedly, the neocons believe the American people are soft, decadent, squeamish, don’t have the “stomach” for global conquest, and must be forced, through increasingly brutal and gruesome acts of false flag terrorism, to do their murderous bidding.
    “McGovern entertained the notion that western governments and intelligence hierarchies could potentially stage terror attacks in Europe and the US either before or after an invasion of Iran,” writes Watson. “That’s altogether possible,” McGovern responded. “I would say even probable because they need some proximate cause, some casus belli to justify really unleashing things on Iran….I would put very little past this crew - their record of dissembling and disingenuousness is unparalleled…. I would say even probable because they need some proximate cause, some casus belli to justify really unleashing things on Iran….I would put very little past this crew - their record of dissembling and disingenuousness is unparalleled…. I think we all agree that an attack is likely before the election and we all agree that it has to do largely with the election—as for timing I see a likelihood that it could come as early as late June or early July, most of my colleagues predict August, September, maybe an October surprise even.”
    Perle’s appearance a the Bilderberg meeting is another indicator something is up. Is Perle in attendance to sell the shock and awe campaign to the neoliberal wing of the globalists, who usually prefer “color revolutions” * la Soros? Or did Rockefeller and Kissinger call Perle, as the neocon ambassador, on the carpet to give him a dressing down and issue a possible warning? In fact, there is no way to know precisely.
    However, one thing is for certain—left to their own criminal devices, the neocons will eventually attack Iran, as they effectively control the biggest and baddest military juggernaut history has ever witnessed.
    Finally, Dr. Michael Carmichael comments on the probable outcome: “…if Bush were to attack Iran, he would instantaneously transform Ahmadinejad into the most powerful figure in the increasingly Anti-American world. With that transfiguration, Ahmadinejad would have nothing to constrain him from launching attacks not only against American targets as Ray McGovern suggests, but the Iranian Prime Minister would be free to join forces with Hizbollah and Islamic Jihad in an attack against America’s primary ally in the region, Israel. Bristling with potential targets from its vulnerable nuclear facility at Dimona as well as its major population centers including Tel Aviv, Haifa and Elat, Israel would be in the frontline of any potential counter-attack by Ahmadinejad.”
    Faced with such a dire prospect, no doubt Israel will start lobbing around nukes.

    Shadowy group meets amid secrecy in Ottawa News Staff – June 9, 2006

    A shadowy group of world leaders and decision makers are meeting in Ottawa this weekend, cloaked in a blanket of security and secrecy that has conspiracy theorists' websites working overtime.

    Considered one of the world's most powerful and secret societies, the Bilderberg group's annual meeting was scheduled to be attended by about 130 people at the Brook Street Resort.

    The guest list, according to an unsigned press release obtained by The Canadian Press, includes the likes of David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Holland's Queen Beatrix, and New York Gov. George Pataki.

    And the Canadian complement includes Indigo books CEO Heather Reisman and former New Brunswick premier Frank McKenna.

    British prime ministers Tony Blair has spoken to the group in the past, as have former Canadian prime ministers Pierre Trudeau and Jean Chretien. Stephen Harper attended in 2003, when he was Opposition Leader. The prime minister is not expected, however, to attend this year's conference.

    Conspiracy theories

    Conspiracy theorists maintain the group has played a key role in world events, allegedly orchestrating the move to a common European currency and getting Bill Clinton elected after he agreed to sign onto NAFTA. And in Yugoslavia, Serbs have blamed Bilderberg for starting the war that led to the downfall of former dictator Slobodan Milosevic.

    And according to the release, this year's group will discuss high oil prices and the best way to deal with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

    But beyond the press release -- which was tantamount to transparency by Bilderberg standards -- there is little indication about what will take place within the hotel.

    Canadian writer Daniel Estulin, who has been following Bilderberg for years, describes it as a "powerful" group of politicians and business people with one objective: "To create a one-world government where you don't have individual nations -- you have one region, one religion, one constitution, one church, one currency and one country."

    "And you're seeing it right now as you have NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement, and you have the European Community (EC)," Estulin, author of Club Bilderberg, said Friday on CTV's Mike Duffy Live.

    The author claims he has several "intimate friends" who are Bilderbergers, who are constantly feeding him information about the proceedings.

    Journalists are banned from the proceedings, except in special cases, and attendees never speak about what took place inside the meetings.

    "No one is allowed to talk about it -- but you have within the conference itself the members of the Bilderberg press," said Estulin, adding that members of The New York Times, The Washington Post, Newsweek magazine, The Financial Times and Time magazine are in attendance.

    Security measures

    Other guests at the Ottawa hotel were asked to check-out before Thursday, cars left in the parking lot will be towed, and members of the hotel gym were told it would be inaccessible for four days.

    On Thursday, this year's guests began arriving at the suburban Ottawa location.

    They came in black limousines and sedans with darkly tinted windows, surrounded by burly security guards and passing through a security checkpoint a half-kilometre away from the hotel.

    Even uniformed Ottawa police were required to show identification to private security personnel before passing through the gates.

    The Bilderberg group has been surrounded in high level secrecy since it was established by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands in 1954.

    The group, which is known by the name of the Dutch hotel where the first conference was held, was originally formed with the goal of establishing better cooperation and understanding between the U.S. and Europe.

    There are no real members of the group. Instead, a secret steering committee sends out invitations to mainly business and political leaders each year.

    The group has headquarters in The Hague, Netherlands, at a building where phone calls are met by a recorded voice with instructions to leave a message, and calls are reportedly never returned.

    Critics such as Estulin say the group is sinister and elitist, and that it operates entirely through self interest.

    If the group's motives are legitimate, they ask, why keep their meetings so secret?

    "Now you have 125 of the most powerful people in the world, and no one seems to want to know what these people are talking about. If this is not a conspiracy, I don't know what is," he said.

    The group, however, claims secrecy is necessary in order to stimulate discussions.

    "The meeting is private to encourage frank and open discussion," said the press release.

    "There will be no press conference."

    Over the past five years, the group's annual meetings have been held in the following locations:

    2000 (June 1-3) Brussels, Belgium

    2001 (May 24-27) Gothenburg, Sweden

    2002 (May 30-June 2) Chantilly,VA, United States

    2003 (May 15-18) in Versailles, France

    2004 (June 3-6) in Stresa, Italy

    2005 (May 5-8) Rottach-Egern, Germany

    Thank you for sharing.

    That explains why our Majesty's monarchy sentry guards (Marechaussee) seemed relax and cheerful (but remain alert with their scrutinous looks )as I walked past them with my dogs.

    Truly interesting in appreciating the sightings of "B"s....
