Despite widespread expectation that former British Prime Minister Tony Blair would be announced as the first European Union President, the former Prime Minister of Belgium, Herman Van Rompuy, was picked for the role just days after he attended a Bilderberg Group dinner meeting.
Reports suggest that there is “dismay” in some quarters over the appointment because Van Rompuy has a “low international profile,” but his fealty towards taking orders from his bosses at Bilderberg is likely to have swayed the decision.
As we have exhaustively documented, Bilderberg has displayed its kingmaker power on numerous occasions, contradicting claims that it merely represents a “talking shop” for aging elitists.
Both Bill Clinton and Tony Blair attended Bilderberg meetings in the early 90’s before becoming President and Prime Minister respectively.

In 2004 it was reported  that John Edwards’ performance at the Bilderberg conference in Italy was a key factor in his selection as John Kerry’s number two. Bilderberg attendees even broke house rules to applaud Edwards at the end of a speech he gave to the elitists about American politics.
Pedro Santana Lopes and Jose Socrates attended the 2004 Bilderberg meeting in Stresa, Italy before both going on to become Prime Minster of Portugal.
Just days before the announcement was made, Van Rompuy attended a dinner organized by the Bilderberg Group in Brussels, where he met with top Bilderberg steering committee members and gave a speech about implementing a raft of new taxes, including airline tax, fuel duty tax and value added tax, all of which will form an EU tax that goes straight to Brussels.
“The possibilities of financial levies at European level must be seriously examined and for the first time the large countries in the union are open to that,” said Van Rompuy, according to Dutch newspaper De Tijd .
The report describes how Van Rompuy held discussions with Bilderberg chairman Étienne Davignon, who earlier this year bragged to the EU Observer  about how the Euro single currency was a brainchild of the Bilderberg Group. Van Rompuy also had a meeting with lifelong Bilderberg member Henry Kissinger.

The foundations for the EU and ultimately the Euro single currency were laid by the secretive Bilderberg Group in the mid-1950’s. Bilderberg’s owned leaked documents prove that the agenda to create a European common market and a single currency were formulated by Bilderberg in 1955. One of the group’s principle founders was H. Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands , a former Nazi SS officer.
But the ideological framework for the European Union goes back even further, to the 1940’s when top Nazi economists and academics outlined the plan for a single European economic community, an agenda that was duly followed after the end of the second world war.
As we have highlighted in the past , Nazism and the EU have some very disturbing parallels. Indeed, the two are fundamentally intertwined and the origins of the EU can be traced directly back to the Nazis.
The fact that the EU was a brainchild of top Nazi economists and industrialists, formulated as a means of preserving dictatorial power and then implemented by a former Nazi working under the auspices of the Bilderberg Group in 1955, proves that the entire European Union system is poisoned with a legacy and a raison d’être of totalitarianism.
This is becoming increasingly obvious in the 21st century as popular social movements across Europe rise up to oppose the blatant power grab being undertaken by the EU via the Lisbon Treaty, which was forced through in Ireland earlier this year despite the population having already rejected it in a previous national referendum.
Just like Hitler repeatedly polled Germans of the 1930’s until he could intimidate them into delivering the result he wanted, the European Union has followed the same method. The ratification of the Lisbon Treaty was what enabled the EU to create the post of a European President in the first place, and there seems little doubt that Van Rompuy will do everything in his power to accelerate the move towards Bilderberg’s ultimate goal – a dictatorial European federal superstate that completely swallows up what tattered shreds of sovereignty member states have left.
