- Bilderberg, reputedly the most secretive
organisation in the world, comprising presidents, royal families, ministers,
top industrialists and financial leaders are set to meet in Sintra at the
beginning of June. Francisco Pinto Balsamão, former Portuguese PM,
media baron and frequent attendee of the meetings is listed as the member
for Portugal. The security for the Bilderberg meetings, which are held
at irregular intervals and prompted by the state of world affairs, is the
responsibility of the host country. According to sources in Washington,
Bilderberg will pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to reimburse the Portuguese
government for deploying military forces to guard their privacy and for
helicopters to seek out intruders. Bilderberg have ordered the resort to
be shut down for a full 48 hours before the conference.
- The News is Portugal's largest circulation
English language newspaper. Established for over 20 years, it is the only
Portuguese newspaper on the net that covers all the major news about Portugal
in the English language.
- The Bilderberg delegates, comprising
some of the world's most powerful decision makers, will be here to discuss
highly classified issues which are not supposed to be disclosed to the
public by the press before or after the meeting.
- Initially alerted to this meeting by
a New York reader who requested anonymity, The News contacted the Caesar
Park Penha Longa resort in Sintra to verify the information that the secret
meeting will be held at their resort. The only confirmation we received
was that an organization 'wishing for the utmost privacy' would be in Sintra
and that the hotel was fully and exclusively booked by this organisation
from June 2 to June 7.
- The agenda for the meeting is said to
include a "globilaztion summit", during which nations which cling
tenaciously to their sovereign identities will be denounced by its leadership.
- The principal feature of Bilderberg is
that it seeks one global government, (a structure similar to the European
Union), while counteracting nationalist sentiment is supposedly its greatest
battle. Renewed calls for the United Nations to be able to directly tax
all people of the world is said to be another major topic to be tabled
for discussion in Sintra.
- The Bilderberg meetings are only held
when and where the hosts can provide the highest levels of security for
their guests. All Bilderberg participants, their staff members and resort
employees will wear photo identification tags. They will have separate
colours to identify the wearer as participant, staff member or employee.
A computer chip "fingerprint" will assure the identity of the
- According to the Washington based investigative
newsletter, Spotlight, who claims to have a contact inside Bilderberg,
any intruders are to be manhandled, cuffed and jailed and if the intruders
resist arrest or attempt to flee, they will be shot.
- International and national media are
said to be welcome only when an oath of silence has been taken, news editors
are held responsible if any of their journalists 'inadvertently' report
on what takes place.
- Bilderberg members are immune to all
forms of bureaucracy that face ordinary citizens on a daily basis. No visas
are required and a free and safe passage is provided by the government
hosting the Bilderberg rendezvous. They travel to and from the airport
to the resort in armored vehicles with a police escort.
- Meetings are said to be held at random
intervals, and rarely at the same locations for obvious security reasons.
- The first Bilderberg conference was held
in May 1954, and the organization was said to have been established as
a secret and supportive wing of NATO and the Marshall plan which was launched
in the 1940s.
- International conspiracy
- The News having researched various sources
on the Bilderberg meetings, discovered that PSD co-founder, Francisco Pinto
Balsemão, allegedly attended at least the previous two Bilderberg
meetings held in Scotland (1998) and Georgia in the United States (1997).
Balsemão is said to be the only Portuguese representative on the
Bilderberg steering committee. Other prominent figures listed to have attended
previous meetings are Ricardo Salgado chief executive officer at Banco
Espirito Santo, Henry Kissinger, Tony Blair (who attended the meeting held
in 1995) and Giovanni Agnelli who is the owner of the Fiat Motor Corporation.

- As revealed exclusively in The News last
week, the Bilderbergs, reputedly the world's most secret society, are due
to meet in Sintra next month. We have received e-mails from all over the
world congratulating The News on making this information public. Yet in
Portugal, as we closed the paper on Thursday, the press has remained tight
lipped about this meeting, in spite of the fact that Portugal's national
press agency LUSA decided to distribute The News' report to all the Portuguese
- A quick search of the internet on the
single keyword Bilderberg, will bring up some of the most extraordinary
claims regarding the objectives and activities of this powerful group of
industrialists, financiers and ex-politicians. It will also reveal many
reports of the lengths to which this organisation will go to maintain full
secrecy over its meetings. Much of the information could be seen as scurrilous,
even far fetched, with claims that these people are part of what is described
as the New World Order. An hour or so of research will be enough to find
the names of most of the members, details of their past meetings and claims
of what has been discussed.
- It is not for this newspaper to become
part of this speculation, yet it is extraordinary that even in a democracy
such as Portugal, the very presence of what can only be described as one
of the most prestigious meetings of powerful men and women from around
the world, could remain unreported anywhere.
- Except in The News.
