To bring about a politically and economically united Europe and world government, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands convened the first Bilderberg Conference in 1954. He organized the Bilderberg Group at the urging of Joseph H. Retinger and Victor Rothschild. Retinger had approached Prince Bernhard in 1952 with the idea. Soon afterwards, Retinger consulted with Averell Harriman, David Rockefeller, Walter Bedell Smith (Director of the CIA), and C.D. Jackson (publisher of Life magazine and who became Eisenhower’s special assistant for psychological warfare and who organized the American wing of the Bilderberg Group) about organizing such a group. Retinger, a Polish socialist and a founder of the European Movement and the American Committee on a United Europe, is considered the “father of the Bilderbergers.”
Bernhard owned a fortune in Royal Dutch Petroleum (Shell Oil) Corp. Another member of the Bilderberg Group was David Rockefeller, who had a fortune in Standard Oil of New Jersey (later Exxon-Mobil). Following illuministic incited revolutions in various parts of the world, these two companies usually gained the oil and natural gas concessions. Warring factions seldom touched the property of these two companies.
The goal of the Bilderberg Group is to regionalize Europe, i.e., create a European Union. (The Treaty of Rome, which created the European Common Market that has evolved into the European Union, came out of the Bilderberg Group.) This goal the Illuminists through the Bilderberg Group is close to completing. Most of Europe will soon be part of a European fascist state that the Illuminists control.
The ultimate objective of the Bilderberg Group is to establish a world government controlled by the Illuminists. To achieve this goal, its members “conspire to manufacture and manage world events” to guide and trick the people into accepting their absolute rule.
Its meetings are held in secret. Only the participants attend the meetings. Initially, even the topics of discussion were secret. The Bilderberg Group normally meets once a year. It meets at a luxurious complex that is heavily guarded. Its meetings are informal with frank discussions and without any voting or adoption of resolutions. The host country is responsible for security (military and police) to protect the meetings. Being above the law, attendees do not need to undergo custom searching, visa requirements, or public notice of their meetings—these laws apply only to the common people, the slaves.
Members of the Bilderberg Group are from the inner circles of Illuminism. They represent the international banking dynasties, multinational corporations, tax-exempt foundations, and high governmental officials (civil and military) — defined as the four major dimensions of power by Skousen — and controllers of the media. Also, well represented are the royal families of Europe. The Group normally has about 100 members. Among the members of the Bilderberg Group are, or have been, Dean Acheson (CFR member, Secretary of State in the Truman administration), Giovanni Agnelli (chairman of Fiat), George W. Ball (Under Secretary of State, director of Lehman Brothers, member of the Trilateral Commission, CFR member), Robert Bartley (Wall Street Journal, CFR member, member of the Trilateral Commission), Zbigniew Brzezinski (Carter’s National Security Advisor), William Buckley (National Review), McGeorge Bundy (President Kenney's and Johnson’s national security advisor, president of the Ford Foundation, and CFR member, member of Skull and Bones), Peter Carrington (chairman of the Bilderberg Group, British cabinet minister, secretary-general of NATO, president of the Royal Institute of International Affairs), Gordon Cowles (editor and publisher of Look, CFR member), Giscard D’Estang (President of France), C.

Most members of the Bilderberg Group are also members of the Council on Foreign Relations, Pilgrim Society, Round Table Group, or English-Speaking Union. Many Bilderbergers are also Trilateralists.
Funding for the Bilderberg Group comes primarily from the Rockefeller Foundation, Ford Foundation, Carnegie Endowment, and other major globalist institutions.
The Bilderberg Group is closely intertwined with the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) and, to a lesser extent, the Central Intelligence Agency. (Some believe that MI6 created the Bilderberg Group under the direction of the Royal Institute of International Affairs.).
