In a rare turn of events, it’s been announced that this year’s 2020 Bilderberg Meeting has been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns. Should the 2020 meeting eventually go ahead, it would be 68th time the Bilderbergers have gathered in their mission to maintain the advancement of the U.S.-Europe “transatlantic” embryonic of world government. On their website, the globalist confab left the announcement to just a few words, stating in all-caps, “THE MEETING 2020 IS POSTPONED.
Stay tuned for more details on this development (see more at end of this article).
Meanwhile, off stage, one of the meeting’s previous attendees has come under scrutiny. Colorado’s Independent Ethics Commission will in fact conduct a hearing on June 4 about former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and his private business travels to determine if state law or the state constitution were violated when “Hick,” as he’s called for short, attended the highly secretive Bilderberg Meeting of 2018 in Turin, Italy.
Although four other business trips taken by Hick are on the table as well, this probe shines an unusually bright light on the Bilderberg gatherings. The gatherings have been happening since 1954, amid spotty and usually tepid mainstream news coverage that typically scoffs at Bilderberg’s significance and fails to reveal Bilderberg’s status as a world planning and networking cabal that helps build technological, financial, informational and political frameworks for unaccountable global governance and deep-state machinations.
The confirmation of Hick’s hearing from a commission staffer was secured by World Impact News (WIN) May 18—following an extended period of speculation as to whether his case would be dismissed.
The most recent proposed hearing date was April 28, following other delays in a probe that stems back to about mid-2019. The June 4 date appears to be a “go” and will take place at 9 a.m. Mountain time. It will be livestreamed on the Ethics Commission’s website.
But since the commission dragged this matter out over several months before finally announcing that hearing date, Hick managed to again enter the political arena; this time he’s vying against one major opponent for the Democratic nomination to challenge incumbent U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R).
Interestingly, the conventional press in Colorado has handled Hick with “kid gloves,” cutting him considerable slack by rarely mentioning that an ethics probe even exists whenever reports are issued about his Senate candidacy, thereby largely avoiding any mention of the Bilderberg Meetings or Hick’s connection to them.
Previously, Hick was an early Democratic would-be candidate seeking the party’s nomination to challenge President Trump in the 2020 election, but that effort quickly fizzled.
Although a 31-page investigative report produced by the Ethics Commission and released in November 2019 stopped short of drawing conclusions, the report looks into a total of 5 trips that Hickenlooper took, apparently on private planes, in 2018 while he was still governor, with considerable emphasis on his June 2018 trip to the Bilderberg Meeting.
The ethics complaint was filed by former Republican Speaker of the Colorado State House Frank McNulty, who created the Public Trust Institute in October 2018—just two days before filing, and right before Hickenlooper left the governor’s office.
In a matter that is giving Bilderberg’s organizers a highly unusual and uncomfortable degree of publicity, McNulty was quoted as saying:
“This investigation . . . underscores the fact that ‘Hick’ is guilty of a pattern of illegal activity under Colorado law. There was no justification made for his travel on private jets or for the gifts he received as part of the Bilderberg Meetings. We look forward to the commission hearing on this. It’s an open-and-shut case.”
BILDERBERG REPLIES ABOUT ‘HICK’
When asked about Hick’s situation, Bilderberg’s own “Media Team,” whose location and staff are kept anonymous, tersely replied:
“With regard to how the Bilderberg Meetings are financed, please note that the hospitality costs of the annual Meeting are the responsibility of the Steering Committee member(s) of the host country. Participants take care of their own travel and accommodation costs. Please understand that we generally don’t make additional comments on this matter.”
The core concern is whether Hick may have functioned like a lobbyist representing private interests while he was governor of Colorado.
According to the original Colorado complaint, the breach-of-ethics allegations against him concern his 2018 trips “on private jets owned by for-profit corporations both domestically and internationally.” The complaint also alleges that Hickenlooper “illegally accepted luxury hotel accommodations and expensive travel expenses from corporations.”
The remaining trips being probed besides Hick’s Bilderberg attendance in Italy include his August 2018 attendance at the Bilderberg-connected American Enterprise Institute’s (AEI) Jackson Hole Symposium (AEI has at times has sent representatives to the Bilderberg Meetings). Then there was a Connecticut trip in March 2018 for the commissioning of the USS Colorado; private travel to New Jersey in January 2018; and a wedding in Texas in April 2018. Notably, when Hick attended the Bilderberg Meeting, hundreds of acres in Colorado were ablaze from wildfires that scorched the area.
But why would a socially liberal Democrat such as Hickenlooper be interested in AEI? Isn’t it populated mainly by social conservatives who are devoted to protecting the rich and powerful and projecting military force globally like all “good” modern republicans?’
