Rick Perry announcing GOP candidacy not a surprise to conspiracy theorists

Rick Perry is announcing his GOP candidacy for President this Saturday. If you know of the Bilderberg Group and its last conference in Switzerland, this should come as no surprise. According to those trying to keep a close eye on the secret Bilderberger meetings and this Austin News 8 report below, Perry was invited to attend the 2007 conference in Istanbul. Many believe it was at this conference that Perry was presumably vetted for the higher office of presidency in 2012.

Many believe the Bilderberger Group puts its influence behind a presidential candidate from each party who will help the group move its agendas forward. American voters are given the illusion of choice, but in reality, the real decision on who becomes President is made for them. They believe that Bilderberg likes to own both horses in a two horse race for the White House. This is how the powerful elite in the world will always get their way. Whether or not any of this is true, it does appear odd that many other U.S. Presidents have attended Bilderberger conferences prior to being elected. As governor, Clinton attended his first Bilderberg meeting in 1991 and was elected president about a year later. President George W. Bush’s trip to Italy coincided neatly with the 2004 conference in Stresa, Italy. Obama attended the 2008 Bilderberg meeting in Chantilly, Va., just before winning the 2008 Democratic nomination.

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) is one of few on the inside who have openly answered questions regarding the Bilderberg Group and their influence in world politics. Read that here.

Another interesting caveat here is that Newt Gingrich thought to be a member of the Bilderberger Group and the Trilateral Commission. Newt allegedly said he never had participated and never would participate in Bilderberg or Trilateral Commission meetings. One might wonder why his candidacy for President has fallen flat and his entire campaign staff has quit on him. What’s really going on here?

Time will tell if the conspiracy theorists are correct on this one. If Perry wins the Republican nomination for 2012, we may want look a little more closely at who is really pulling the strings. If he doesn’t, then maybe the conspiracy folks are wrong on this issue altogether. Let’s wait and see.

Could the Minnesota Twins go from worst to first like they did in 1991?

Do supporters of gay marriage in Minnesota realize that boycotting the Basillica Block Party would only take away money from the homeless?

Bruins fan allegedly stabbed in neck during riot

I am seriously considering not wearing a team jersey if I am watching a sporting event in a different city. With Bruins fans being stabbed in Vancouver and Giants fans being beaten in Los Angeles, I think I’ll dress a little more inconspicuously.

Bilderberg meeting this weekend

The Grand Hotel Kempinski in St. Moritz, location of the 2011 Bilderberg meeting

The Grand Hotel Kempinski in St. Moritz, location of the 2011 Bilderberg meeting. It has been closed down since April 10th and will reopen to the public on June 17th.

For those of you who don’t know, The Bilderberg Group, Bilderberg conference, or Bilderberg Club is an annual, unofficial, invitation-only conference of approximately 140 guests, most of whom are people of influence in the fields of politics, banking, business, the military and news media. The names of attendees are made available to the press, but the conferences are closed to the public and the media, and no press releases are issued.

Because of its exclusivity and privacy, the Bilderberg group is frequently accused by conspiracy theorists from both extremes of the political spectrum of being an all-powerful secret society fixing the fate of the world behind closed doors including orchestrating wars, world economies, and even manipulating presidential elections. Here is a current article regarding thoughts about the 2012 election.

Critics of Bilderberg conspiracy theories counter that it is nothing more than a policy discussion forum and social club which only serves as a means to brainstorm, reach consensus, and create social cohesion within the power elite of Western European and North American nations, to better promote Atlanticism and a neoliberal form of globalization.

If you want to learn more about this group, I would recommend reading “The True Story of the Bilderberg Group” by Daniel Estulin.

The annual meeting is taking place in St. Moritz, Switzerland on June 11, 2011.

Here is an alleged list of attendees for Saturday.
