Exclusive to The Spotlight
By James P. Tucker Jr.
1999 was a bad year for Bilderberg and its future looks gloomy.
Herculean efforts to keep their meetings secret in Sintra,
Portugal, in June and in Washington in November failed miserably.
Every year Bilderberg's cover grows weaker as the European media
collaborate with The SPOTLIGHT to unmask evil acts.
The American media collaborates with Bilderberg in a futile
attempt to maintain secrecy. American "journalists" are largely
successful, however, in maintaining a domestic blackout.
At Sintra, Bilderberg was in a panic to end the war in Yugoslavia
which it had started, fearing public outrage at NATO's slaughter of
women and children in the bombings of hospitals and shopping malls.
They were able to manipulate an end to the war which had served its
purpose: Establishing NATO as the United Nations' standing army with
license to patrol the entire world.
Especially interesting was the presence of senators at Sintra.
For years, leaders in Congress regularly attended Bilderberg. But as
SPOTLIGHT penetrated the veil of secrecy, attending Bilderberg
created what former House Speaker Tom Foley once called "political
problems" with constituents. For years, no congressmen appeared at
But this year, three senators ap peared: Evan Bayh (D-Ind.),
Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) and Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.). Bayh and Dodd are
sons of former senators and, like their fathers, have a history of
internationalism. Bayh's father, Birch Bayh, led the Senate fight to
give away America's canal in Panama.
But Hagel is an anomaly for Bilderberg. He has a conservative
history. He has been a sharp critic of the UN's Kyoto treaty on
"global warming" and a staunch defender of American sovereignty.
Their presence means that Bilderberg views all three as potential
presidents, as was the obscure governor of Arkansas when he attended
his first Bilderberg meeting in Baden, Germany, in 1991. President
Clinton has been represented by his wife, Hillary, at one Bilderberg
meeting since taking office. All presidents since and including
Dwight Eisenhower have had a White House official attend Bilderberg.
Bilderberg and its brother group, the Trilateral Commission, like
to own presidents and, in most cases, control Republican and
Democratic nominees, thus owning both horses in a two-man
Their success is demonstrated by the fact that, since and
including Eisenhower, every president except Richard Nix on and
Ronald Reagan have been members of Bilderberg or the Trilateral
Commission. In office, however, Reagan and Nixon paid homage to the
world shadow government.
Another senator, Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas), attended the
secret Bil derberg steering committee meeting in Washington in
November. This suggests that they view her as a future presidential
Much of this meeting was devoted to worrying over growing
"nationalism" and "isolationism" in America and fears of as
"Buchanan backlash"—a reference to Pat Buchanan, who is running for
the Reform Party's presidential nomination.
Bilderberg's grief in 1999 is America's glory—and hope for
further restraining the power grabbers in the dawn of a new
