|Joseph Retinger, Józef Hieronim Retinger (17 April 1888 – 12 June 1960) was a Polish political advisor and the founder of the European Movement.|
Joseph Retinger was born in Krakow, Poland (at that time a part of Austria-Hungary), the youngest of four children. His father, Józef Stanis?aw Retinger, was the personal legal counsel and advisor to Count W?adys?aw Zamoyski, an eminent nobleman. When Józef H. Retinger's father died, Count Zamoyski took young Józef under his wing. Retinger had planned on becoming a priest, and was enrolled in a seminary, but the prospect of celibacy made him change his mind.
Funded by Count Zamoyski, Retinger attended the Sorbonne in 1906, and was the youngest person ever to earn a PhD there, in 1908 at the age of twenty, before his move to England in 1911, where his closest friend was fellow Pole, Joseph Conrad. He would later write about Conrad in his book, Conrad and His Contemporaries (1943).
In 1917, Retinger travelled to Mexico, where he became an unofficial political advisor to union organizer Luis Morones and President Calles. Later, during World War II, he advised Prime Minister of the Polish Government in Exile, General Sikorski.
After the war, he became a leading advocate of European Unification and helped to found both the European Movement and the Council of Europe. Retinger was later to become Honorary Secretary General of the European Movement.
Retinger initiated the original Bilderberg conference in 1954.
Rome (Joseph Retinger)
* "The original Bilderberg conference was held at the Hotel de Bilderberg, ... from May 29 to May 30, 1954. The meeting was initiated by ... Joseph Retinger" [en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bilderberg_Group]. "Joseph Retinger ... founder of the European Movement" [en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Retinger]. "The European Movement ... coordinates the efforts of associations and private individuals desiring to work towards the construction of a united Europe" [en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Movement].
* "The single most important personality connected with the birth and creation of the Bilderberg Group is Joseph Retinger (also known as L'Eminence-His Grey Eminence). Retinger had a colourful, lifelong career that raised him to the top of the world power élites. ... Retinger, as a Catholic, was viewed by many as an agent of the Vatican, acting in liaison between the Pope and the Father-General of the Jesuit order" [global-elite.org/index.php/Bilderberg_Group].
* "Retinger was brought to America by Averell Harriman (Council on Foreign Relations), then U.S. ambassador to England, where he visited prominent citizens such as David and Nelson Rockefeller, John Foster Dulles, and then CIA Director Walter Bedell Smith. Previously, Retinger had formed the American Committee on a United Europe along with future CIA Director and CFR member [and Freemason] Allen Dulles, then CFR Director George Franklin, CIA official Thomas Braden, and William Donovan, former chief of the Office of Strategic Studies (OSS), forerunner of the CIA" [Marrs, Rule by Secrecy, p. 40].
One of the most powerful front groups of the Illuminati, which also works as a secret society in itself, is the Bilderbergers. This is a group which was created in the early 1950s by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands (former SS-officer) and the Polish socialist Joseph Retinger, one of the founders of the European movement. These two persons initiated scheduled meetings on a regular basis for the European foreign ministers. Their first meeting occurred at the Hôtel Bilderberg in the Dutch Oosterbreck on May 29, 1954, thus the name of the group.
The core of the group, called the Steering Committee, had an original count of 39. To reiterate, they were originally led by Prince Bernhard, a close friend to the British Crown.
|As the Cold War intensified, Knight of Malta Joseph H. Retinger, acting on behalf of the Vatican and the Priory of Sion, forged ties with the European Council of Princes (the respectable name for the Dragon Court), the CIA, and Britain's MI6 to create the New World Order think-tank "The Bilderberg Group", of which Henry Kissinger is a permanent member. It's first chairman was Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, who held that position for the next 22 years, until a financial scandal forced him to resign. His daughter Queen Beatrix attended the year 2000 meeting, as did ample other European aristocratic players. The undemocratic "Bilderberg Group" continues to play a major part in international affairs, and remains closed to public scrutiny and participation.|

|They also shared another very interesting commonality, they were all faithful Catholics. And not just that; Pinay, Habsburg, and Adenauer were members of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM). Pinay, Habsburg and the less prominent Jean Violet have also been accused of involvement with Opus Dei. On the membership list of Le Cercle you'll find plenty of names accused of having been connected with the Knights of Malta, Opus Dei, or the Priory the Sion (monarchist templar organization).|
This is all the more interesting, because Joseph Retinger, who recruited Bernhard and others to set up Bilderberg, was another Vatican agent; a Jesuit and likely a Knight of Malta. At the end of WWII, the Knights of Malta have been involved with smuggling nazis out of Germany with the help of the OSS (later CIA), an organisation they themselves created.
In turn, the CIA funded the covert anti-communist war in Europe, including Radio Free Europe, the Economist, the European Council of Princes, the Gehlen Organization, the Stay-Behind networks, the Pinay Circle, and the overall European moverment. A lot of this money was funneled through American Committee on United Europe (ACUE), which was established at the direction of Duncan Sandys, Joseph Retinger, Allen Dulles, and William Donovan. Dulles and Donovan were top CIA chiefs and Knights of Malta, Retinger a Vatican agent, and Duncan Sandys a son-in-law of Churchill. Besides the CIA's clandestine efforts, the Ford Foundation and the Rockefeller Institute were the prime sponsors of the ACUE
