The 64th annual Bilderberg meeting is in Dresden, Germany this year and it is a very exclusive affair. Whether these meetings are seen as an opportunity for the world’s power players to informally converse about important global trends, or just a secret gathering of the Illuminati puppet masters who custom-build history to suit their mysterious agenda.
The guest list includes names such as Henry Kissinger, LinkedIn Founder Reid Hoffman, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Former CIA head David Petraeus, Washington Post columnist Anne Applebaum, NBC News Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel, Bloomberg View’s Megan McArdle, Bloomberg LP Editor-in-Chief John Micklethwait, Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan and guess who else?
And that would be South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham.
Yes that Lindsey Graham who launched a failed presidential bid. You do not suppose that they will be discussing the U.S. presidential race between Clinton and Trump behind closed doors, do you?
Graham is likely to have been invited to speak about Donald Trump, whose unlikely rise to become the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has generated concern in Europe. In the last year Graham has compared voting for Trump to being poisoned, a Trump presidency to “booking a ticket on the Titanic” that could “lead to another 9/11” and civil war, and declared that his party has “gone bat—- crazy.” His insistence that electing Trump is dangerous, not only for the U.S. but also for its allies, mirrors the concerns of many European politicians who have listened to the businessman’s inflammatory statements with increasing alarm.
But by doing this Lindsey Graham is in violation of the Logan Act and needs to be brought up on felony charges. The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. § 953, enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments having a dispute with the U.S. It was intended to prevent the undermining of the government’s position. The Act was passed following George Logan’s unauthorized negotiations with France in 1798, and was signed into law by President John Adams on January 30, 1799. The Act was last amended in 1994, and violation of the Logan Act is a felony.
This is not the first an obscure United States political figure that is not known world wide as attended Bilderberg. Anyone remember Bill Clinton attending in 1991?
