The Bilderberg Group (and here) is an annual meeting among current and future leaders in government, money, and media.

CA CAFR shows $600 billion tax surplus, 1% criminals cover-up and demand ‘austerity’

Clint Richardson details California’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) to reveal $577 billion in Californian taxpayers’ investments. This public evidence makes Governor Brown’s claim of a ~$16 billion budget deficit with no option than “austerity” a criminal lie of omission.
