by James Corbett, The International Forecaster:
…it’s that time of year when confabulators are conferring and conclaves are conspiring. Keep your wits about you and stay tuned to for more information on all of these events when, if, and as they transpire.
Oh, pity the poor globalists. They’re going to be running around like chickens with their heads cut off in the next few days. …Well, OK, more like flying around in their private jets like well-pampered chickens with their heads cut off, but you get the idea.
Why? Well, because globalist conference season is in full swing and there are going to be plenty of air miles racked up in the coming days by the top global super-gophers. There’s Bilderberg in Italy, the G7 in Canada, and of course the much-ballyhooed North Korea summit in Singapore. Lost yet? Well, don’t worry. Here’s the handy-dandy Corbett Report guide to globalist conference season and what we can expect to see in the coming days.
Remember when genuinely useful intel used to come out of the Bilderberg meetings? Like when Jim Tucker reported that the group decided to postpone the Iraq war at the 2002 confab in Virginia? Or when Daniel Estulin reported Kissinger’s pronouncement at the 2005 conference in Germany that oil prices would double within 12 months? It seems we don’t get accurate, predictive reports like that out of Bilderberg anymore, so instead we end up scrutinizing the (Bilderberg-supplied) press release and the (Bilderberg-supplied) attendee list and guessing at what might be happening. But I’ve talked about these issues at great length in my reporting on Bilderberg in recent years so let’s move on to scrying the tea leaves.
As James Evan Pilato notes in the most recent episode of New World Next Week, one of the most interesting (officially announced) attendees of this year’s conference is Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State at the Vatican. Perhaps the fact that the meeting is being held in nearby Turin just makes it convenient for the Vatican to send a representative this year, but there may be more at play here than a mere drop-in by a Vatican official.
You see, as long-term Bilderberg watchers will know, the group is a vetting ground for up-and-coming political candidates: Bill Clinton attended the 1991 meeting when he was still an unknown Governor of Arkansas; Tony Blair attended in 1993, the year before he became Leader of the Opposition in the British Parliament; and Stephen Harper attended in 2003, one year before becoming Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada. Heck, even the Old Gray Presstitute, the New York Times, reported that it was a speech at Bilderberg that led to John Edwards being picked as John Kerry’s running mate in 2004.
So what’s the connection to Cardinal Parolin? Well, he’s been identified as the leader of a rebellion in the Vatican and tipped as the likely successor to Pope Francis, who, as it turns out, is now openly musing about his own retirement. So is Bilderberg vetting the next Pope?
You heard it here first, folks! If the Cardinal impresses the assembled string-pullers in Turin, Pope Francis will be gone in the next 12 months and replaced by Parolin. (DISCLAIMER: I have no sources at Bilderberg and this is total hypothetical speculation.)
For those still looking for up-to-the-minute reporting on what’s happening outside the well-fortified security perimeter of the conclave, the usual sources like Dan Dicks and Luke Rudkowski are there on the scene streaming live reports… but you better hurry up as the conference officially ends on Sunday.
The G7 is one of those things that happens and gets reported extensively by local media in the host country…and promptly memory holed. Not out of censorship, mind you, but sheer disinterest. No one knows or cares what the G7 really does, and it doesn’t seem to be a body that directly impacts people’s day-to-day lives. There’s a meeting, some world leaders line up for a group photo, and a bland, mealy-mouthed joint declaration is issued.
