The elite Bilderberg group for 2019 includes 95 year-old Henry Kissinger and Jared Kushner. The two biggest topics will be the future of capitalism and the growing instability of their global order. ⁃ TN Editor
More than a hundred of the world’s elite including Henry Kissinger, Mark Carney and the Dutch King will meet at the secretive Bilderberg summit this week.
Bankers, Prime Ministers, CEOs and defence experts will meet in Montreux, Switzerland, to discuss a wide range of topics including Russia, cyber threats and Brexit.
From Thursday to Sunday 130 influential men and women from 23 countries will meet under strict secrecy rules and the precise location of their venue has not been revealed.
Notable attendees include former US Secretary of State Kissinger, Governor of the Bank of England Carney, former CIA director David Petraeus and White House Adviser Jared Kushner, Donald Trump‘s son-in-law.
Google chief Jared Cohen, who heads the Jigsaw subsidiary of Alphabet Inc., will also be in attendance, as well as Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary and anti-Brexit Labour peer Lord Andrew Adonis.
According to the Bilderberg Group, their discussions will be ‘informal’ and without specific agenda, besides their publicised list of broad talking points.
They do not vote, they do not set policy and they do not release statements, the group claim.
In addition, they hold talks under Chatham House rules – members can use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of a speaker nor any other participant may be revealed.
News outlets are not invited to the event, though there are journalists attending, including Economist editor Zanny Minton Beddoes and Bloomberg editor John Micklethwait.
The meeting attracts protesters and many conspiracy theorists have ideas about how the Bilderberg Group control the world.
It is not known exactly where the meeting is being held in the city on the shores of Lake Geneva but the five-star Fairmont Le Montreux Palace is fully booked.
In recent annual meetings security has soared to tens of millions in ensuring the safety of the dignitaries.
Some have made wild claims that the group serves as a front for the Illuminati, a secret and sinister order founded in 18th century Bavaria.
