A review of The True Story Of The Bilderberg Group, By Daniel Estulin

It is difficult to re-educate people who have been brought up on nationalism to the idea of relinquishing part of their sovereignty to a supra-national body. — Bilderberg Group founder, Prince Bernhard

As a rhetorical question, can someone please explain to me how it is that progressive liberals such as John Edwards and Hillary Clinton, as well as do-gooder humanitarians with multiple social projects ongoing such as the Rockefellers and every Royal House in Europe, can perennially attend Bilderberg meetings apparently knowing that the final objective of this despicable group of hoodlums is a fascist One World Empire? — Daniel Estulin (P.318)

Daniel Estulin is a Madrid-based journalist and an investigative reporter who took on the daunting and dangerous task of researching the Bildeberg Group, and who offers his findings in The True Story Of The Bilderberg Group, recently published by Trine Day. Equally intriguing as his harrowing tales of being followed and nearly killed on a couple of occasions while working on the book, is the manner in which Estulin connects the dots between the Bilderberg Group, world events, notable politicians and corporate tycoons and the two other secretive monsters of the ruling elite, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Trilateral Commission (TC). The project lasted fifteen years and was motivated by Estulin’s curiosity about how it is that the mainstream media has never covered in depth the meetings of the Bilderberg Group whose combined wealth exceeds the combined wealth of all U.S. citizens.

What Estulin’s book makes clear is that the group, along with the CFR and TC, has become a shadow government whose top priority is to erase the sovereignty of all nation-states and supplant them with global corporate control of their economies under the surveillance of “an electronic global police state.” (xv)

The author emphasizes that not all members of the group are “bad” people, and he implies that membership is structured somewhat like concentric circles in a target scheme with in inner core and various levels of relationship between that core and the outer circles of membership. Almost every famous player in politics and finance in the world is a member of one of the three organizations mentioned above, and their political affiliations range from liberal to conservative, for example, George W. Bush, George Soros, Gerald Ford, George McGovern, Jimmy Carter. Of this private club, Estulin says:

This parallel world remains unseen in the daily struggles of most of humanity, but, believe me, it is there: a cesspool of duplicity and lies and double-speak and innuendo and blackmail and bribery. It is a surreal world of double and triple agents, of changing loyalties, of professional psychotic assassins, brainwashed black ops agents, soldiers of fortune and mercenaries, whose primary sources of income are the dirtiest and most despicable government-run subversive missions-the kind that can never be exposed.(15)

This world, according to Estulin, is so perverse and evil that “it has left an indelible mark on my soul”. (16) How not? Because the Bilderberg Group and its two other triplets, the CFR and the TC have set about to loot the entire planet. Their members run the central banks of the world and are poised to control discount rates, money-supply, interest rates, gold prices, and which countries receive or do not receive loans. Membership is by invitation only, many of the earliest members being handpicked, not from right-wing groups but from among none other than the Fabian Socialists who ultimately supported global government.

Another chilling quote Estulin includes is from William Shannon:

The Bilderbergers are searching for the age of post-nationalism: when we won’t have countries, but rather regions of the Earth surrounded by Universal values. That is to say, a global economy; one World government (selected rather than elected) and a universal religion. To assure themselves of reaching these objectives, the Bilderbergers focus on a ‘greater technical approach’ and less awareness on behalf of the general public.


In 1991 Bill Clinton attended the Bilderberg Conference in Baden-Baden where Estulin asserts that he was “anointed” to the U.S. presidency, and shortly thereafter he took an unexpected, unannounced trip to Moscow. It appears, says Estulin, that he was sent there to get his KGB student-era, anti-Vietnam war files “buried” before he announced his candidacy for president which happened some two-and-a-half months later. Today, Clinton is a member of all three groups: Bilderberg, CFR, and TC. Hillary Clinton is a member of the Bilderberg Group.

Estulin points out that “almost all of the presidential candidates for both parties have belonged to at least one of these organizations, many of the U.S. congressmen and senators, most major policy-making positions, especially in the field of foreign relations, much of the press, most of the leadership of the CIA, FBI, IRS, and many of the remaining governmental organizations in Washington. CFR members occupy nearly all White House cabinet positions.”(80) When one considers that most prominent members of mainstream media are also members of what Edith Kermit Roosevelt, granddaughter of Theodore Roosevelt called “this legitimate Mafia”, how can we assert that Americans obtain their news from independent sources?

For example, The News Hour with Jim Leher is the cornerstone of PBS’s programming. Leher is a CFR member, and when one examines the funding of the news hour by: Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) whose chairman Dwayne Andreas was a member of the Trilateral Commission; Pepsico, whose CEO Indra Krishnamurthy Nooyi is a Bilderberger and TC Executive Committee member; and Smith Barney which is interlocked with Citigroup, a global financial services company that is a member of the Bilderberg Group, the CFR, and the TC, what kind of “news” should one expect from Leher’s News Hour? Consider also that many of the journalists on the News Hour: Paul Gigot, David Gergen, William Kristol, and William Safire are members of one or more of the three groups. (153)

Likewise, when we consider the membership in one or more of these groups of almost every American president since the inception of these organizations, we can no longer pretend that any Democratic or Republican presidential candidate offers the American people an alternative to ruling elite global hegemony.

In fact, Estulin’s research reveals that “the Council on Foreign Relations creates and delivers psycho-political operations by manipulating people’s reality through a ‘tactic of deception’, placing Council members on both sides of an issue. The deception is complete when the public is led to believe that its own best interests are being served while the CFR policy is being carried out.”(117)

And what happens if the “anointed ones” become too autonomous? One chapter in the book, “The Watergate Con-Game”, answers that question. In it Estulin suggests that Richard Nixon was set up by the Council on Foreign Relations of which he was a member because of his insubordination and unwillingness to submit to the shadow government. Presumably, Nixon’s demise was carefully crafted to demonstrate to subsequent Chief Executives the price they would pay for disregarding the agenda of those who anointed them.


In the book’s final pages, Estulin’s research waxes increasingly relevant to the present moment in history. He asks: “Why would David Rockefeller and other U.S. Trilateralists, Bilderbergers and the CFR members want to dismantle the industrial might of the United States?” (184). He then launches into a summary of the economic history of the twentieth century and makes one of the most powerful statements of the entire book: “What we have witnessed from this ‘cabal’ is the gradual collapsing of the U.S. economy that began in the 1980s.” (187)

In case you haven’t noticed, this “gradual collapse of the U.S. economy” is no longer gradual, and what Estulin is asserting confirms a great deal of the assertions made by Catherine Austin Fitts that the current housing bubble explosion/credit crunch/mortgage meltdown has its roots in the 1980s. James Howard Kunstler has also written recently in his blog entitled “Shock and Awe” that the great American yard sale has begun. In other words, as an engineered economic meltdown drives hundreds of thousands and eventually millions of businesses and individuals into bankruptcy, key players in the Big Three ruling elite organizations can buy up the train wreck left behind for pennies on the dollar-a brilliant fast-track strategy for owning the world.

In the final months of 2007 we are witnessing the stupendous success of the Big Three’s strategy for planetary economic hegemony as the cacophony of their carefully engineered global economic cataclysm reverberates across America and around the world. It was never about buyers who didn’t read the fine print when taking out liar loans. It was always about silver-tongued, ruling elite politicians and central bankers, anointed by the shadow government, who ultimately and skillfully stole and continue to steal governments from people and replace them with transnational corporations.

No one could have said it better than David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, a Bilderberg member and board member of the Council On Foreign Relations in his Memoirs:

Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure-one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.

If you want to know who really runs the world and the lengths to which they will go to establish their globalist hegemony, you must read Estulin’s well-documented The True Story of The Bilderberg Group.

  3. Interesting list of so-called ‘bilderbergers’ here: http://www.nndb.com/org/514/000042388/ Though I couldn’t find the source. Supposedly they published the list for the first time last year.

    Apparrently Melinda Gates, Soros and Charlie Rose are indeed members (If so I stand corrected).

    BBC Coverage here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4290944.stm
    Good, if older, analysis by Third World Traveler here: http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Trilateralism/Bilderberg.html

    But as even Brzsinski points out in a Utube, there are overt and covert meetings in all periods, the Trilateral Commission, CFR and Bilderbergers are all overt (bilderbergers being the most secretive), clearly people know who they are, where and when they meet, hardly a ‘shadow government’.

    There was a time when the secret conspiracy were communists. They were supposed to be meeting behind the iron curtain, infiltrating society and governments, brainwashing people, stopping at nothing but world dictatorship, domination and control (likely a jewish plot by Marxists).

    This is then further mixed up with the jews, who supposedly control everyone and everything via the protocols of the elders of zion (proven a hoax).

    Of course you also have PNAC and the Zionist neocons (supposedly jews are behind that as well), secretly plotting wars and world control.

    LaRouche re-inflates new fears to all who would listen, and yet another paranoid shadow conspiracist addiction via Alex Jones fans the terror-storm flames of secretive forces, using indoctrinated rappers so that even the left are dragged in.

    Bilderbergers can’t organize and control the whole world in a single meeting of 100 people once per year. The rest of the groups all publish minutes and websites.

    Take note that it’s the right who are the activists in this land, be they Zionists, republicans, warmongers, the anti-communist witch-hunters & religious zealots.

    This form of conspiracism about the bilderbergers is just another dark disease created by the right so they have an excuse to be pro NRA and chest-beat about ‘liberty’ and their violent ultra-nationalism about the glorious USA.

    If there ever was a scary, shady culture it’s every element of the right wing, right up the scale from the cave-dwelling militia-nuts, the skin-heads, the neocons, the palin-worshipers, mega-churched joe the miserable miscreants, and all the big-business banksters & corporados invested in the sick, selfish, anti-environmentalist myth of american nationalistic prominence and power.

    These are the activists in this land. These are the ones who intentionally took apart social progress, killing the counter-culture and destroying the real american potential for a progressive society. This is what’s wrong with american society today: The right wing. Don’t be further seduced.

    If people finally are catching on to the blatant mass theft of industrial capitalism, then they should stop buying into it, stop enlisting for their wars, stop making their weapons, stop paying for illegal invasions, and stop voting for republicans or conservatives, stop believing the market polices itself, and stop believing something will trickle down, and definitely don’t align with fear-mongering ultra-rightist diseased, fictional conspiracism.

    Save the revolutionary spirit for peace, humanitarian progress, and the protection of life on earth, not for the addictive, psychic terrorism of Alex Jones, Lyndon LaRouche, and their fantasmagoric constructions about the jew pulling all the strings.

  9. John Edwards and Hillary Clinton are neither liberal nor progressive. The Rockefellers and the Royalists aren’t do-gooder humanitarians. Those three organizations aren’t the only ones involved in the globalist agenda. The Illuminati, Freemasonry, Skull and Bones, the Jesuit Order, Knights Templars, Knights Of Malta, and other secret societies are also involved along with the Vatican.

  11. Thank you for publicizing this. People think I’m crazy when I bring it up.

    Suspicion and the relentless tracking of the uber-wealthy is critical because these families got rich in the first place from what might actually be an inherent pathology. Google “political ponerology” for a study of this illness as it relates to politics and power!

    I tend to believe that there is a shadow government working against the American people because of this .

  24. Lo,
    Perhaps greed should be considered an addiction, and should be treated as “we” treat all Addicts.
    Go to jail, Pay $$$$, and forfeit all holdings. A little Prison time will change their attitudes, towards the masses[people].
    Somehow slick Lawyer’s have convinced the Courts that Corporations have the rights the same as an Individual[U. & I], w/o possibility of Incarceration. This is not acceptable, or we should be considered Corporations and enjoy the same right not to be Incarcerated, just pay a little fine, a slight portion of your income.
    Evict all Incumbents ’08, Clean House[s].

  25. I have heard of these meetings but I never knew their proper name. You will notice on the list of richest people in the world the list never contains the Rothchilds and the other bankers. I hope you would expose the myth of the Federal Reserve and what it actually does and how it works. Many people believe it’s a government agency. When in fact in manipulates the system for the profit of the bankers.

    Furthermore these people who are rich beyond imagination desire control and power. Like the drug addict they can’t get enough of it. They’d like to be like the pope and have people come and kiss their big toes.

    However ultimately God is in control of the world as the whole world is soon to find out. Unfortunately the biggest and most perverted lie is that the God of the Bible supports this group. The true message of Jesus is more revolutionary than Marx by far.
