6-6-13   Delegates for a private conference of top politicians and businesspeople from around the world have started to arrive at a luxury country hotel.

Several cars with blacked-out windows entered the gates of the Grove hotel, near Watford, Hertfordshire, on Thursday morning for the secretive meeting of the Bilderberg Group.

It is thought billionaire executives from multinational companies such as Amazon and Google, high-ranking political figures including the chancellor, George Osborne, and even members of royal families are among the 130 or so attendees.

Amid tight security, members of the press and a handful of protesters gathered in a fenced-off area just inside the grounds of the hotel, but some half a mile from the redbrick hotel.

As delegates arrived for the four-day meeting, protesters heckled their cars as they disappeared down the driveway.

Former CIA Director David Petraeus is in attendance at the 2013 Bilderberg Group conference to help construct the “big data” spy grid, which is set to become the new frontier of clandestine statecraft as Internet connectivity becomes ubiquitous.

Bilderberg’s official agenda for 2013 lists one of the areas of discussion as, “How big data is changing almost everything,” a reference to how the “Internet of things” along with the ubiquitous growth of social media is transforming the world of surveillance and the ability to foresee and manipulate future events.  http://www.infowars.com/david-petraeus-at-bilderberg-to-craft-big-data-spy-grid/

Panama Canal

Nicaragua has awarded a Chinese company a 100-year concession to build an alternative to the Panama Canal, in a step that looks set to have profound geopolitical ramifications.

The president of the country’s national assembly, Rene Nuñez, announced the $40bn (£26bn) project, which will reinforce Beijing’s growing influence on global trade and weaken US dominance over the key shipping route between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans…..

Nicaraguan officials signed a memorandum of understanding last September with Wang Jing, the chairman of Xinwei Telecom and president of the newly established Hong Kong firm HK Nicaragua Canal Development Investment Company, to build and operate the canal.  http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jun/06/nicaragua-china-panama-canal
