Bilderberg Exposed In Europe; Exclusive Reports Confirmed


European media pressured Bilderberg into coughing up the documents it had re fused to provide in the United States. These documents confirmed earlier American Free Press reports.


Exclusive to American Free Press

Under threat of extensive media attention in Europe for its refusal to provide the agenda and list of participants at its secret meeting in Chantilly, Va., Bilderberg surrendered.

Tony Gosling, a European Bilderberg-hound-in-training, promptly faxed the documents to American Free Press. Gosling is one of many in Europe who have collaborated with the court-killed Spotlight—and now AFP—in exposing Bilderberg. His web site,, provides extensive coverage.

Bilderberg had hoped to keep all its secrets because the major media in the United States collaborated in the blackout. When meeting in Europe, Bilderberg now confronts a lot of coverage in the major media initially prompted by The Spotlight.

When compelled to make its list public, Bilderberg always adds a “press release.” The press release is the same each year, rationalizing its conducting public business in private, with the exception of a first-paragraph update. It reads:

“The 50th Bilderberg meeting will be held in Chantilly, Va. Among other subjects the conference will discuss: terrorism, trade, post-crisis reconstruction, Middle East, civil liberties, U.S. foreign policy, extreme right, world economy, corporate governance.”

These topics were reported regularly to AFP by a Bilderberg source inside Westfields. You read about them a week ago.

The list forced out of Bilderberg is incomplete, as always. Every time the list has been obtained by whatever means, there are people who attended but are not mentioned. For example, this year, AFP was able to get a call through to Andrew Parisiliti at Westfields during the meeting but he is not on Bilderberg’s list.

Parisiliti is foreign affairs advisor to Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.), a Bilderberg regular who was attending an Asian peace summit at the time. Parisiliti was representing Hagel at Bilderberg.


Bilderberg has, at one time or another, had representatives of all major U.S. newspapers and network news outlets attend. They do so on their promise to report nothing. This is how Bilderberg keeps its news blackout virtually complete in the United States.

This year’s crop includes Jim Hoagland (a regular) and Charles Krauthammer, both columnists for The Washington Post, Jean de Belot of France, editor of le Figaro; John Bernder of Norway, director-general of Norwegian Broadcasting Corp.; Paul Gigot, editorial page editor of the “conservative” Wall Street Journal; Charlie Rose, producer of Rose Communications who appears on public radio; Toger Seidenfaden of Denmark, editor-in-chief of Politiken and Kenneth Whyte of Canada, editor of The National Post.

Conrad Black, owner of a string of newspapers around the world, attended as a regular.


Every year, there are a few newcomers who are part of the Bilderberg fringe. Roughly 100 are regulars who have attended for many years. Fringe people are invited because Bilderberg thinks they may be useful tools. If not, they are cast aside.

When Douglas Wilder was serving his term as governor of Virginia, he was summoned by Bilderberg because he was the first black ever elected a governor in the United States. Perhaps he could be Bilderberg’s little tin Jesse Jackson.

Wilder ran in the Democratic presidential primary in 1984 but got less than one percent of the vote in lily-white New Hampshire and was cast aside by Bilderberg. Similarly, Christine Todd Whitman, as governor of New Jersey was invited and later cast aside.

The most dramatic example of a “useful recruit” was the obscure governor of Arkansas, Bill Clinton, who attended his first Bilderberg meeting at Baden Baden, Germany in 1991. There, Clinton was told what NAFTA is and that he supports it. The next year, he was elected president.

The absence of Hagel does not mean he was cast aside, because his representative attended and the senator had hoped to. But he was attending to Bilderberg business at the Asian defense meeting and remains in good standing.

So these newcomers may be emerging Bilderberg stars or future castoffs, depending on events: Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Tex.) and Rep. John LaFalce (D-N.Y.).

Bilderberg likes to control U.S. politics. They have owned every president since Jerry Ford (Bilderberg). Jimmy Carter and his vice president, Walter Mondale, belonged to Bilderberg’s brother group, the Trilateral Commission. Ronald Reagan received the Trilaterals at the White House and his vice president and future president, George Bush the Elder, was a Trilateralist. Bush addressed the group as vice president. Bush’s vice president, Dan Quayle, attended one Bilderberg meeting.

Bush’s son, the current president, has no formal connection to either group. However, he had plenty of messenger boys from his administration attending Bilderberg, as the accompanying list shows.

But for the first time, the chairmen of the two major parties were summoned to Bilderberg. Terry McAuliffe, chairman of the Democratic National Committee and Mark Racicot, chairman of the Republican National Committee, both attended Bilderberg.

Leaders of the Democratic and Republican parties now know what Bilderberg wants them to do. They also know the vast sums of money and global influence that are at stake.

Bilderberg neglected to invite Dan Charles, head of the new America First Party.
