No More Public “Servants” at Bilderberg, Lawmakers Say

COPENHAGEN — The chorus of official resistance to the shadowy Bilderberg meetings between top globalists in Big Business and Big Government is growing louder.

While the outcry remains relatively tame considering the magnitude of the problem — over the weekend, 120 to 150 top globalists descended on Copenhagen to plot humanity’s future behind closed doors — lawmakers and the public are becoming increasingly concerned. Even a Bilderberg attendee called for more transparency.

About one-third of those gathered come from government and politics. This year, though, a coalition of Italian lawmakers decided enough was enough, and that it is time for public “servants,” supposedly employees of the people, to stop meeting behind closed doors with bailed-out mega-bank bosses, crony capitalists, and top CEOs. Around the world, lawmakers have also been lambasting various elements of the shadowy gathering, too — calling for more transparency, arrests, an end to the gatherings, and more. Other leaders called on their countrymen to represent their nation’s interests.

Like every year at the Bilderberg summit, what was really discussed by all of the bigwigs from Big Business and Big Government remains a mystery. For critics and lawmakers across the political spectrum, however, there are strong suspicions that they were up to no good. Either way, opponents of the gathering said it needs to stop — taxpayer-funded public “servants” have no right to discuss policy with crony capitalists and foreign rulers in the shadows. For Americans at the summit, the Logan Act could even make it a felony.

With all that is known or at least suspected about Bilderberg, a growing number of policymakers are starting to fight back. At this year’s summit, for example, a delegation of three Italian members of Parliament arrived in Copenhagen hoping to present some simple requests to the paranoid attendees hiding inside behind legions of taxpayer-funded security personnel. “This year, as a member of the Parliament, I decided to do a step forward,” MP Carlo Sibilia, with the surging anti-EU “Five Star Movement” party, told We Are Change in an on-camera interview.

The Italian lawmakers had simple requests. “In this meeting there are lots of people who have been elected by the people, and then there are members of the most important corporations all over the world — bankers, financial institutions — people that are really influential in the world,” Sibilia said in remarkably good English. “So we said, ‘If this is going on, and there are elected people in there, why don't you just make it public, just give us a report about what's going on in there?’”

The preferred option, the lawmaker said, would be live-streaming video coverage of the meetings. “If this is not possible, the live coverage, for instance, please, don't invite people who have been elected,” Sibilia added. He also offered a list of taxpayer-funded public “servants” who should not be there: people who are supposed to represent the public, people with government assignments, anyone involved in setting monetary policy, officials responsible for permits, and more. “This is really important,” he said.
