Well there was barely a peep from the MSM last week as some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world gathered together just outside of Washington, D.C. in Chantilly, VA for their annual meeting. Though their list is usually kept secret, they have released a list of people who were invited, though quite often people attend who are not on the list.
This year, being an election year, should be most interesting to Americans. In fact, it has been claimed that Mitt Romney was present for this year’s meeting.
Charlie Skelton, writing for the UK’s Guardian reports,
Four eyewitnesses on the hotel staff told me Willard Mitt Romney was here at Bilderberg 2012. My four eyewitnesses place him inside. That’s one more than Woodward and Bernstein used. Romney’s office initially refused to confirm or deny his attendance as Bilderberg is “not public”. They later said it was not him.
So, was he being crowned, or singing for his supper? Will Mitt Romney follow in the august footsteps of Clinton, Cameron and Blair to have attended Bilderberg and then shortly become leader? Four years ago, Senator Obama shook off his press detail and nipped (many think) into Bilderberg. This exact same hotel.
Did Romney have to get down on one knee in front of David Rockefeller? This sounds flippant, but it’s a serious question: has Bilderberg switched allegiance? Are they going to toss away Obama after just one term?
In following up whether Skelton’s sources are credible, RT.com reported,
Skelton says that, when reached for comment, Romney’s office would not confirm or deny the rumor but eventually insisted that their official stance is one that does not put Romney at least week’s meetings.
Some skeptics, however, aren’t buying it.
Although Romney’s office won’t put the presidential candidate at Chantilly’s Westfields Marriott where the meeting was held, the Infowars website notes that the governor did have a gap in his publicized schedule last Thursday that coincides with the opening day of this year’s conference. Radio host Alex Jones told RT that this year’s meeting would largely be focused around the upcoming US presidential debate where Romney is expected to face off against incumbent Barack Obama.
Since Romney’s campaign won’t confirm or deny it, can we can assume the eyewitness accounts are somewhat credible? Otherwise there would be a definite affirmation or denial of his attendance. However, it can be noted that though the presumptive GOP nominee was on the West Coast for teh better part of last week that we know of, his itinerary was clear on Thursday which would have allowed for him to fly back and attend.
However, there is one small issue with Romney being in attendance on Thursday. Though his schedule remained clear, by all accounts he did stop off at the devastated Solyndra property to mock Barack Obama’s miserable failure in stimulus money and “green energy.”
Many believe that what takes place at the Bilderberg meetings have national and world policy implications. As reported by Infowars.com,
An invite to the Bilderberg conference has routinely proven beneficial to future Presidents and Prime Ministers.
Four years ago during a heated battle on the campaign trail, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton gave reporters the slip to attend the 2008 Bilderberg meeting at the same hotel. On precisely the same weekend as the confab was taking place, the Washington Post announced that Hillary was withdrawing from the presidential race and would support Obama.
The New American quoted a Romney adviser concerning Bilderberg,
Regardless of this array of evidence, Mitt Romney adviser Vin Weber dismisses any claims that the Bilderbergers have an insidious agenda or are more greatly involved in the American political system than they should be.
“These are influential folks — and they’ve all got friends in American politics — so if they see somebody that impresses them or doesn’t, I expect that they would pass that view on,” said Weber, a former Minnesota congressman who has attended two Bilderberg meetings. “But I would tell all of those bloggers and protestors to save their outrage for a real conspiracy, because this is just a conference.”
Similarly, Robert Kagan, another Romney adviser, attempted to paint over the Bilderberg’s power by asserting that the conference is merely “a lot of vaguely uninteresting people giving vaguely uninteresting lectures and then having nice meals in nice places.”
While no definitive proof has been forthcoming that Mitt Romney attended, it is quite interesting that these advisers to Romney seem to know enough about Bilderberg, a group that tried to remain secretive and that the mainstream media continues to ignore while they go on and on about the latest celebrity nonsense or the Trayvon Martin case, that they can say confidently that group is just a conference and nothing to worry about.
