As reported by local media, billionaires are gathering on the island of Kiawah, located near South Carolina. The story broke on May 10, but the meeting was reported to have started on the 8th. “Suspicion was raised when nearly 20 very expensive jets were seen lined up at the Charleston International Airport on Johns Island,” reported WBTW.
The meeting is reportedly being led by Bill Gates of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The public has been kept away from the hotel which is hosting the meeting. Other reported attendees include Michael Bloomberg of New York, Oprah Winfrey and Billionaire Warren Buffet. The potential Presidential hopeful Jeb Bush is also reported to be attending.
A similar meeting took place in 2009 in New York at the home of Sir Paul Nurse, President of the Rockefeller Foundation. Familiar names were in attendance including Bloomberg, Gates, and Winfrey. The London Times reported that the meeting discussed plans to “curb overpopulation.” As to the secrecy of this 2009 meeting, a guest said, “They wanted to speak rich to rich without worrying anything they said would end up in the newspapers, painting them as an alternative world government.”
In the meantime, the secretive Bilderberg group is preparing to host their 2013 gathering in Watford, U.K.
