This Week in the News
This week on Survival Saturday, it’s apparently upside-down-and-backwards week. A hate group got a peace prize, the Bilderbergers plan to save the world, and Kathy Griffin is being “bullied” by the Trump family.
Bilderbergers will save the world for our own good.
If you aren’t familiar with the Bilderberg group, here’s the rundown:
It is an annual meeting of a bunch of political and financial elites from around the world, where, rumor has it, they choose leaders and create the direction of governments. Many people in the know believe that the group is ever pushing us toward a one-world government that would result in little more than slavery for 99% of us and even greater wealth and power for the 1%.
Here is how Bilderberg describes itself:
Founded in 1954, the Bilderberg Meeting is an annual conference designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America. Every year, between 120-140 political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia and the media are invited to take part in the conference. About two thirds of the participants come from Europe and the rest from North America; approximately a quarter from politics and government and the rest from other fields.
The conference is a forum for informal discussions about major issues facing the world. The meetings are held under the Chatham House Rule, which states that participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s) nor any other participant may be revealed.
Thanks to the private nature of the meeting, the participants are not bound by the conventions of their office or by pre-agreed positions. As such, they can take time to listen, reflect and gather insights. There is no desired outcome, no minutes are taken and no report is written. (source)
Don’t you just love it when a bunch of rich people secretly decide your future?
Here’s the list of this year’s confirmed attendees, also known as a list of people you should never, ever trust to have our best interests at heart.
This year, the meeting is being held at the Westfields Marriot in Chantilly, Virginia, and the number one topic for discussion is apparently President Donald Trump. Here’s the agenda, from a Bilderberg press release:
- The Trump Administration: A progress report
- Trans-Atlantic relations: options and scenarios
- The Trans-Atlantic defence alliance: bullets, bytes and bucks
- The direction of the EU
- Can globalisation be slowed down?
- Jobs, income and unrealised expectations
- The war on information
- Why is populism growing?
- Russia in the international order
- The Near East
- Nuclear proliferation
- Current events
Black Lives Matter is awarded a global peace prize
You know it’s upside-down-and-backwards day when a group responsible for much of the racial animosity in the United States today is awarded a prize for peace. In fact, you have to look at the source to see if it’s one of those annoying satire sites.
