Bilderbergs meet

Today, the annual Bilderberg meeting commenced at the Hotel Suvretta in St. Moritz, Switzerland.
The Bilderberg group is one of the world's most famous clubs, it gathers bankers, politicians, industrialists, media moves and shakers, scholars and billionaires in a different location each year, usually in Europe. All the attendees share one condition of membership: discretion.

Created in 1954 by Prince Bernhard of Holland in order to bring together European and American elites, this annual meeting is named after the hotel of the Dutch village Oosterbeek where it took place for the first time.

The first meeting was to ensure that Europe and the US were BFFs. Every meeting since has basically been about that same subject. It's a bunch of rich white dudes (DSK has attended several) hanging out and keeping secrets.
Because the meetings are shrouded in secrecy, conspiracy theories abound.
The meetings do violate the Logan Act.
