powerful Bilderberg group is grooming one of its own for the
Democratic presidential nomination in 2004. Bilderberg has a long
history of owning American presidents and heads of state in Europe.

Bilderberg and its world government
network believe they own President Bush because of his father’s
participation in a brother group, the Trilateral Commission, but the
secret international elite likes to own both horses in a two-horse
race: Enter Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.).
Dodd has attended the last three
secret Bilderberg meetings, which in itself means the
internationalists believe he will be a useful tool.
Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) has also
attended two and was invited to Sweden last year but cancelled
because Sen. Jim Jeffords (Ver.) was at the same moment bolting the
Republican Party and was handing control of the Senate over to the
The prestigious and pricey White
House Weekly, a journal covering the inner workings of the White
House, has already pronounced Dodd, who has made no public move
toward a presidential campaign, a strong White House
The journal quotes a top strategist
for a competing presidential candidate saying: “This Dodd for
president business is getting talked about a lot.” He said it is
scaring some contenders.
“Dodd has significant relationships
with all the top Democratic money folks around the country, going
back to his time as DNC (Democratic National Committee) chairman
under Clinton,” another opponent’s aide is
“He’s championed election reform which
racked up big chits with the civil rights community and the
Democratic base; he’s fighting Bush’s right-wing nominations on the
Foreign Relations Committee,” the aide is
The secret international cabal has a
history of owning presidents. President Gerald Ford was Bilderberg.
He was defeated by President Jimmy Carter, who, like his vice
president, Walter Mondale, were Trilaterals.
The Trilateral Commission, which will
meet at the Ritz Carlton in Washington April 5-7, is less secretive
than Bilderberg, with which it has interlocking leadership and a
common agenda. David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger are powers in
both groups. Trilaterals huddle behind closed and guarded doors but
the fact of their meetings is acknowledged.
In the 1980 primaries, Ronald Reagan
scoffed at the Trilateral Commission. His campaign operative, former
Texas governor and treasury secretary John Connally, said Reagan
would block Trilaterals from his administration. After his
nomination, Reagan took Trilateral Bush on the ticket. As vice
president, Bush the Elder addressed the Trilaterals in Washington
and they were received at the White House.
In 1992, Bush lost to Bill Clinton, an
obscure governor of Arkansas. Clinton was a Trilateralist who had
been promoted to Bilderberg when it met in Baden Baden, Germany in
Dodd’s “potential candidacy is major
trouble for Joe Lieberman,” the journal said, referring to the
Democratic senator from Dodd’s state of Connecticut who was Al
Gore’s running mate in 2000. It quoted another
“Not only is Lieberman’s fate taken
out of his hands by Gore’s Hamlet routine, which is expected to
continue through ’03, but now Dodd will split his [Lieberman’s]
Connecticut and New York and national fund-raising base. He could
make Nutmeg State politics an absolute soap opera.”
