I see Richard "The Prince of Darkness" Perle is going. I like his voice, soothing and low key.

At first, I thought of this infamous thread.

My second thought was perhaps I should vote for Stephen Harper. It would keep the lizard-king-world-hegemony-men happy.

"The group, which includes luminaries such as Henry Kissinger and former UK chancellor Kenneth Clarke, does not even have a website."

Ha! Losers.

More information on why they don't have a website is available at http://www.bilderberg.org/

Good to see the BBC has learnt from its recent past and now researches ever story thoroughly.

On closer inspection, i.e. actually looking at it, that ain't the Bilderberg website. :)

Are you implying that that is their website?
Do you think the real Bilderbergs need to raise funds by selling tee shirts and controversial videos?
I guess you don't read as carefully as the BBC editors.

Why is the title of this post only a "The"? Why? WHY?!?!?

I'd be willing to set them up a CafePress shop, for a piece of the action, of course.

Number 1 isn't quite as highly ranked at Bilderberg as he is here. Still he knows what information his reptilian brethren would want censored.

Funny story...my husband and the boy always go out to get the mail in the evenings after dinner. Yesterday, I'm sitting at the dining room table reading a book while they're outside. When they come in, the Man has this odd look on his face...and I said "What?" And he said..."Did you join some secret society when I wasn't looking? Joined forces with the lizard people, didja?" And I laughed and said "Well, if I had, I couldn't very well tell you...besides, I am the Lizard Queen....why do you ask?" And he tossed an envelope from the Council on Foreign Relations on the table and said "Ok...now...is there something you want to tell me? Were the WTO protests really a front for your Bilderberg ways? Hmmm?"

It still makes me giggle.

luminaries such as Henry Kissinger

Luminary? I thought he was the devil incarnate.

five fresh fish

So? The etymology of the name Lucifer and the word luminary both have something to do with light.

Personally, I am holding out for an invitation to the Trilateral Commission.

Who controls the British crown?
Who keeps the metric system down?
We do! We do.
Who leaves Atlantis off the maps?
Who keeps the Martians under wraps?
We do! We do.
Who holds back the electric car?
Who makes Steve Guttenberg a star?
We do! We do.
Who robs cave fish of their sight?
Who rigs every Oscar night?
We do! We do.

What I want to know is, was Postroad invited this year?

inpHilltr8r, I would point out that Mr. P. has not posted in this thread, so perhaps he is behind close doors as implied.
