    Skelton: Stop Bilderberg’s Nightmare Future At All Costs

    Skelton: Stop Bilderbergs Nightmare Future At All Costs 190509top2

    London Guardian journalist Charlie Skelton, who began his coverage of the 2009 Bilderberg conference in a jovial and mocking manner, is now warning that the horrendous treatment dished out to him by both police and undercover spies is just a taste of what we can expect in our daily lives if we allow Bilderberg’s agenda, and specifically ID cards and implantable microchips, to be implemented.

    Initially setting out to cover the event in a satirical way, Skelton left Greece yesterday chilled to the bone about how he had been harassed, detained and stalked for days on end by authorities merely for taking photographs of the hotel where Bilderberg members were staying.

    “My experience over the last several days in Greece has granted me a single, diamond-hard opinion,” writes Skelton, “That we must fight, fight, fight, now – right now, this second, with every cubic inch of our souls – to stop identity cards.”

    I can tell you right now that the argument “If I’ve done nothing wrong, why would I worry about showing who I am?” is hogwash. Worse than that, it’s horse hockey. It’s all about the power to ask, the obligation to show, the justification of one’s existence, the power of the asker over the subservience of the asked. (Did you know that most Greek police don’t wear a number? This is an obligation that goes one way.)

    I have learned this from the random searches, detentions, angry security goon proddings and thumped police desks without number that I’ve had to suffer on account of Bilderberg: I have spent the week living in a nightmare possible future and many different terrible pasts. I have had the very tiniest glimpse into a world of spot checks and unchecked security powers. And it has left me shaken. It has left me, literally, bruised.

    Skelton adds that the ID card turns the citizen into a suspect and would be “the end of everything,” noting that plans are also afoot to replace the ID card with an implantable microchip for greater efficiency and tracking of the population, a subject that was up for discussion at last year’s Bilderberg Group conference.

    During the meeting in Washington DC, journalist Jim Tucker’s source told him that Bilderberg were discussing the microchipping of humans on a mass scale, which would be introduced under the pretext of fighting terrorism whereby the “good guys” would be allowed to travel freely from airports so long as their microchip could be scanned and the information stored in a database.

    Highlighting the fact that authorities in Greece found it so easy to intimidate and harass journalists because there were so few there, Skelton is now calling for a deluge of citizen journalists to descend on Bilderberg 2010 where it is held.

    “Publicity is pure salt to the giant slug of Bilderberg. So I suggest next year we turn up with a few more tubs. If the mainstream press refuses to give proper coverage to this massive annual event, then interested citizens will have to: a people’s media. Find the biggest lens you can and join us for Bilderberg 2010. No idea where it’s going to be, but there’s usually a few days’ notice,” he writes.

    Bilderberg 2009 was again marked by an almost universal media blackout of around 150 of the planet’s top powerbrokers meeting in secret to steer the future of the world. A G8 summit or a World Economic Forum would attract thousands of media stories and yet Bilderberg, despite its alluring cloak and dagger secrecy which would normally attract journalists seeking a scoop like a moth to a flame, was mentioned by a mere handful of corporate media outlets. Not one U.S. news network dared touch the story.

    As Skelton highlights, the more light thrown on Bilderberg’s shady activities will lead to more questions being asked of the people who attend.

    “Petition newspapers to send a correspondent. Petition your MP to ask a question in parliament. This happened a few days ago in Holland. Citing an article by Paul Joseph Watson on prisonplanet.com, a Dutch MP asked in parliament about the involvement of the prime minister, the minister for European affairs and Queen Beatrix, asking them to make public any items that were on the agenda, and whether the ratification of the Lisbon treaty was discussed,” he writes.

    Guardian Writer Hounded And Threatened Over Bilderberg Reporting

    Guardian Writer Hounded And Threatened Over Bilderberg Reporting 180509Bilderberg

    London Guardian writer Charlie Skelton has further detailed the constant harassment and stalking he has been forced to endure for daring to cover the 2009 Bilderberg meeting near Athens.

    A somewhat distressed and emotionally exasperated Skelton has filed a fresh report explaining how he has been consistently followed around and spied upon by undercover police (pictured opposite) and government security officials during his time in Vouliagmeni, Greece.

    “I came to make a few cracks about Bilderberg and ended up getting sledgehammered in the nuts.” Skelton writes, referring to the fact that his initial posts were written with a lighthearted and comical approach.

    The situation quickly turned serious for Skelton however, once the secretive elite confab kicked off.

    He has been arrested twice for attempting to take photographs close to the Astir Palace resort, inside of which 150 or so of the world’s most influential powerbrokers have been trading words and strategies for the past four days.

    Skelton relates how he has been threatened by his stalkers and has even gotten into a scuffle with two of them.

    “I have been stalked and harassed by Greek government security, I have hidden from them in stairwells, challenged them in the street, tried to arrest them, and been lied to by them.” he writes.

    Skelton describes how he has approached different police departments around the city to demand answers on why he is being hounded, and how he has even seen one of his stalkers inside a police department.

    Despite also visiting the British embassy after fearing for his safety, Skelton has been completely stonewalled by the authorities.

    He repeats the words spoken to him by a police captain in Athens:

    “No, I don’t think you have a problem. They only follow you to see where you are going. I think they don’t want to harm you. And if they do want to harm you, I’d sooner they don’t do that in Athens.”

    “They follow you from police station to police station. They know that you have informed police that you are threatened. They are more careful now.”
