Most loathing bankers, CEOs and elected politicians met May 31st to June 3rd in a hotel in Chantilly, Va., a Washington DC suburb Attendance at the meetings is by invitation only, invitations sent out by the group's steering committee headed by Henri de Castris, Chairman and CEO of AXA Group. Castris is ably assisted by Bilderberg founding member, heir to the Standard Oil fortune and sole participant in the ‘Member Advisory Group,' David Rockefeller.
The goal of the organization is to bring together the elites of North America and Europe to allow them to speak freely with one another without the pesky restrictions of "silly liberal ideas" like public accountability. 2012 was the first time the group has met in the U.S. since 2008, a year which coincidentally also included a Presidential election. Guess who got invited that year?

The meetings are private, invitation-only for about 120 individuals from the worlds of politics, business, finance, energy, media and nobility. No resolutions are voted on, no minutes are taken and no statements are issued.
In Moscow, Russian army general colonel and military analyst Leonid Ivashov commented on the gathering:
"You see, there is a global shadow power. First of all, it's the Jewish mafia, all kinds of closed clubs that have been formed in accordance with the Marburg Plan since the beginning of the XX century when it was launched.
The Plan clearly says that its goal is the transition of world power into the hands international Jewish bankers. They are the customer. And it is now no problem to find the executioners."
While the mainstream media would be quick to dismiss the protestors as a group of conspiracy theorists, a wider range of the political spectrum was represented among the protestors in in Chantilly . Tea partiers, libertarians, traditional conservatives and even a few occupiers were woven into the coalition of long-time Bilderberg hunters.
Among the most vocal participants at Friday's rally was radio show host Alex Jones, who frequently led the demonstrators by megaphone. He argued the meeting constituted a violation of the law.
"This is illegal. Government officials meeting and discussing policy with private interests in secret, or representatives of other governments, is a violation of the Logan Act," he said, referring to a federal law first passed in 1799 that forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments.
Jones was confident the presence of protesters was having an impact on the attendees of the meeting.
He added that Bilderberg meetings allow high-ranking officials to make deals away from the public eye.
"It's mainly about big government contracts, for the big wigs," he said. "And then the big wigs give the government people in the revolving door jobs."
The protest took off around 1:00 p.m. when Alex Jones, the founder of the news website Infowars.com, arrived on the scene. Jones is the organizer of the protest and has been chasing down the Bildergers for years.
Jones led a march around the perimeter of the hotel until arriving in front of a section of the fence near the main conference building. The protesters flocked to the area, and security quickly followed.
As Jones began a "1776″ chant, two SUV's cruised over, and a group of officers corralled the protestors onto the curb around the perimeter of the hotel. Another SUV drove by with other members of the security team who took pictures and video of the protestors.
Undeterred, Jones and the protestors continued in unison to chant patriotic slogans. Many protestors brought up the fact that these public officials were violating the Logan Act, and calls for citizen's arrests echoed throughout the crowd.
According to Alex Jones, currently leading an Occupy Bilderberg protest, the annual gathering of Jewish Massons from the Bilderberg Group serves the interests of an international banking cartel intent on creating a one world government and a global Central Bank. To achieve these long term goals, the Bilderberg Group meets annually to implement international policies where they secretly manipulate national politics, economics, and global events.
The ultimate goals are all very worldly: a One World Government controlled by a World Central Bank. The international banking families would provide much of the capital for setting up the World Central Bank thereby creating virtually unlimited wealth for future generations of international bankers. This wealth would be more than sufficient to satisfy the greed, ambitions, and political needs of international banking interests in controlling humanity. The Bilderberg Group has already become, according to American author Daniel Estulin, a shadow world government:
"They have gathered yearly in a luxurious hotel somewhere in the world to try to decide the future of humanity ... the Bilderberg Group has grown beyond its idealistic beginnings to become a shadow world government, which decides in total secrecy at annual meetings how their plans are to be carried out. They threaten to take away our right to direct our own destinies".
