Great to see some coverage of this real news. CNN still has a story about Justin Beiber walking into a wall on their frontpage.

Very interesting. Why do they meet here?

Bob, you should check out InfoWars (dot) com if you really want to know.

"Another Patch reader said in an email at 3:30 p.m. that police were "standing in the middle of the road making traffic a nightmare" outside of the hotel entrance." Untrue. I drove by from my office on Conference Center Drive at that time and there were no police in the road nor any 'nightmare' by either protesters or police.

Some Bilderberg theorists believe they're meeting close to DC because of the presidential campaign. They met in Chantilly in 2008 as well. Logistically speaking, Westfields Marriott is the best hotel/conference center near Dulles International Airport. I don't know if you've been there, but the property is also set up in a way that ensures privacy without being in the middle of nowhere.

Thanks for the info. Maybe he was speaking about an earlier time, and it just wasn't clear in the email.

I first heard about Bilderberg in 2008 when they met here last. Then apparently they met in Greece in 2009, and then Spain in 2010, and then Switzerland in 2011, and now they are back here. They certainly do seem to get around!

Bunch of rich guys!

Take what you read there with a grain of salt though.

We live in interesting times.

They choose the Westfields Marriott for the simple reason that the reptilian pods are located deep beneath the property, having been inserted there in a special, super-secret ceremony back in 1903

Which was long before the site became a Marriott, of course, but bear in mind that the Bilderbergers have omniscience of all things past, present, and future...Alex Jones what a whackjob

I think this more coverage and pictures in one paper, than all other media combined in the last 57 years . Look up LOGAN ACT , and why politicians are not allowed there and why !
