Bilderberg & The Double-Headed Eagle Jurriaan Maessen Infowars.com ( http://www.infowars.com/?p=7234 ) January 19, 2009 Some unsavoury stars glowed in the sky above Oosterbeek, the Netherlands, where a meeting at the Bilderberg hotel was convened in 1954. A club of wealthy robber barons met under the inspired chairmanship of a Prussian prince named Bernhard von Lippe-Biesterfeld, a confessed Nazi and acclaimed neâer-do-well. Discussed was the formation of a new Anglo-American pact, or so it was stated. In line with the eliteâs habit of using bold euphemisms, the group was officially presented as an informal transatlantic think tank. As we know, the real setup was much more sinister. A band of robber barons Top military figureheads met with the representatives of European and American banks to forge a new road ahead since the Austrian painter of picture-postcards had paved the way for them before splattering his brains across his bunker ceiling. Both the military and economic arm flared up under the careful supervision of European royalty, and intertwined to form a single flame (with a cloud of political moths hovering around it), enveloping the European continent under an ominous cloud. Prime focus of the meeting was the gradual abandonment of sovereignty in favour of a great international government. To quote the complaining prince: âIt is difficult to re-educate people who have been brought up on nationalism to the idea of relinquishing some of their sovereignty to a supra-national bodyâ. Bernhard was not the only one cherishing this vision. In the following decades the Bilderberg group would attract likeminded psychopaths to work tirelessly on wiping out existing borders as they went along. All this would have to be achieved with the help of well organised military, economic and political components, carefully placed inside key locations of the infrastructure to grease the wheels of globalism. An ambitious plan for sure. But they would not have to start from scratch. Rise of the Hanseatic League Around the year 1175, somewhere in the vast forests of Northern Germany, a similar plan was contrived. An unsuspecting peasant who would have happened to walk past would have seen- glimmering through the dark tree trunks- a wild fire ablaze and some intimidating looking men warming their hands around it. Several Germanic merchants and noblemen were gathered in secret to discuss an idea that was already years in the making. Although initially the plan was probably still as shapeless as the forest deities they praised, it slowly grew into more than just a plan that would have great implications for Northern Europe in the centuries to come. Ancient trading guilds from all over Germany, Hansas as they were called, set out to build a great unified trade organisation. This new organisation was out to gather as many European towns under its wing as possible, offering all kinds of trading privileges along the Baltic and North Sea and in return demanding free access through all ports along the great inland rivers. Good news, it seemed, for the impoverished forts of the Low Countries in the west, for now they were able to trade more goods over longer distances. But the local riverside lords had unknowingly entered into an agreement with a cunning serpent. Over the next three centuries the League would dictate economic policy in Western Europe and therefore exert influence on the everyday politics of those days. Playing cities and counties off against each other, the organisation held medieval North-West Europe in a tight economic stranglehold that would last for the better part of the Middle Ages. In the course of this time the number of towns that swore (or were forced to swear) allegiance to the League rose to a staggering 200. A bewildering number when we take into account we are still in the dirty depths of the Dark Ages. The League realised however that controlling and expanding her monopoly would require more than just relying on the weapon of economic boycott. The new trade organisation would enforce its rule with the help of an industrious military arm, clearing the way for hanseatic settlements in the remotest of areas.
