Billionaires, tech CEOs and top members of the Republican establishment flew to a private island resort off the coast of Georgia this weekend for the American Enterprise Institute’s annual World Forum, according to sources familiar with the secretive gathering.

The main topic at the closed-to-the-press confab? How to stop Republican front-runner Donald Trump.

Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google co-founder Larry Page, Napster creator and Facebook investor Sean Parker, and Tesla Motors and SpaceX honcho Elon Musk all attended. So did Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), political guru Karl Rove, House Speaker Paul Ryan, GOP Sens. Tom Cotton (Ark.), Cory Gardner (Colo.), Tim Scott (S.C.), Rob Portman (Ohio) and Ben Sasse (Neb.), who recently made news by saying he “cannot support Donald Trump.”

Along with Ryan, the House was represented by Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Fred Upton (Mich.), Rep. Kevin Brady (Texas) and almost-Speaker Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), sources said, along with leadership figure Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.), Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-Ga.), Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (Texas) and Diane Black (Tenn.).

Philip Anschutz, the billionaire GOP donor whose company owns a stake in Sea Island, was also there, along with Democratic Rep. John Delaney, who represents Maryland. Arthur Sulzberger, the publisher of The New York Times, was there, too, a Times spokeswoman confirmed.

“A specter was haunting the World Forum–the specter of Donald Trump,” Kristol wrote in an emailed report from the conference, borrowing the opening lines of the Communist Manifesto. “There was much unhappiness about his emergence, a good deal of talk, some of it insightful and thoughtful, about why he’s done so well, and many expressions of hope that he would be defeated.”

“The key task now, to once again paraphrase Karl Marx, is less to understand Trump than to stop him,” Kristol wrote. “In general, there’s a little too much hand-wringing, brow-furrowing, and fatalism out there and not quite enough resolving to save the party from nominating or the country electing someone who simply shouldn’t be president.”

A highlight of the gathering was a presentation by Rove about focus group findings on Trump. The business mogul’s greatest weakness, according to Rove, was that voters have a very hard time envisioning him as “presidential” and as somebody their children should look up to. They also see him as somebody who can be erratic and shouldn’t have his (small) fingers anywhere near a nuclear trigger.

Sources familiar with the meeting — who requested anonymity because the forum is off the record — said that much of the conversation around Trump centered on “how this happened, rather than how are we going to stop him,” as one person put it.

Trump, who already has nearly one-third of the delegates he needs to secure the GOP nomination, faces major tests in the Florida and Ohio primaries next week. If he wins both those states, he will need to win just half of the remaining delegates to secure the nomination.

He wasn’t the only topic of the wide-ranging conference, however. At one point, Cotton and Apple’s Cook fiercely debated cell phone encryption, a source familiar with the exchange told HuffPost. “Cotton was pretty harsh on Cook,” the source said, and “everyone was a little uncomfortable about how hostile Cotton was.” (Apple is in the midst of a battle with the Justice Department and the FBI over an encrypted iPhone that belonged to one of the San Bernardino shooters.)

AEI has held the annual forum on Sea Island for years. It’s so secret that in 2015, Bloomberg News complained that no one would even say whether it had snowed.

Federal Aviation Administration records available on FlightAware.com show that a fleet of private jets flew into and out of two small airports near Sea Island this weekend. Fifty-four planes flew out of the airport on St. Simons Island, Georgia, on Sunday — nearly four times as many as departed from the airport the previous Sunday.

pretty sure the whole forum was not dedicated to talking about trump or stopping him..but his name obviously was raised..oh the terror he brings to their eyes..why?

  1. Blueprint For A Peaceful 2nd American Revolution

    2016 is to 1776,
    as the First American Revolution
    is to the Upcoming Second Revolution

    In the decades leading up to the Age of Information, as manifested by the Internet, the World Shadow Government (WSG) has to make a crucial decision. They knew that by allowing the creation of the World Wide Web there would be a global forum and cyberspace in which to share an unprecedented amount of truth and information … about everything under the heavens. They also knew that much of that secret information would be extremely detrimental to their plans for outright world domination. The WSG was likewise aware that their personal reputations would suffer profoundly, as would the reputations of their many interlocking corporations and secret organizations. However, they proceeded to develop the Internet with the understanding that they would completely control every single aspect to it. Toward that end DARPA, the CIA, NSA, DIA as well as many other government alphabet soup agencies, are directly responsible for founding and funding all the major IT companies. In other words, the FEDs have — from the very beginning — owned and operated Microsoft and Apple, Google and Yahoo, Facebook and Twitter, Intel and Oracle, and every other major player in the Information Technology Industry. In this way they have had the whole place locked down since day one.

  2. Since it seems these bloodline families and their priestly class are all about power and control, I can’t imagine them wanting their way of life to end, no peasants to rule over in their little kingdoms – so long as they are still in control of the information, I really don’t see them taking away the 21st century bread and circuses they’ve provided for their and our amusement so long as they can muddy up the info as they have in even the Kennedy Murder, 9/11 etc. Of course until it becomes of no use to them, and then I guess they’ll tell us what we’ll do in the next phase of OUR lives. !!!^&**^%&

  3. coincidence https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jekyll_Island

    • Jekyll Island is an island off the coast of the U.S. state of Georgia, in Glynn County; it is one of the Sea Islands and one of the Golden Isles of Georgia. The city of Brunswick, Georgia, the Marshes of Glynn, and several other islands, including the larger St. Simons Island, are nearby. Its beaches are frequented by vacationers and guided tours of the Landmark Historic District are available.

      • Planning of the Federal Reserve System

        At the end of November 1910, Senator Nelson W. Aldrich and Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury Department A. Piatt Andrew, and five of the country’s leading financiers (Frank Vanderlip, Henry P. Davison, Charles D. Norton, Benjamin Strong, and Paul Warburg) arrived at the Jekyll Island Club to discuss monetary policy and the banking system, an event that led to the creation of the Federal Reserve.[9] According to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, the 1910 Jekyll Island meeting resulted in draft legislation for the creation of a U.S. central bank. Parts of this draft (the Aldrich plan) were incorporated into the 1913 Federal Reserve Act.[citation needed]

  5. Newt speaks of ‘secret societies’ as if they are the only danger to our existence, but groups like the one he belongs to, are equally as detrimental to our nation’s economic well being, as it seems they are the funders, the money launderers and the club members that allow the religious activities of slave markets, global slave trading and nation building for Big Vatican Business to hide behind.

    These are men and women who pretend to be outstanding members of society, working for and with the holy ‘ones’ who are in fact the ‘Greater Good’ they often speak of.

    It is through their activities that our hard earned money saved for a day when we can retire with at least a roof over our heads and a small safety net against the broken promises of those who steal money from our paychecks each week, which they like to call ‘entitlements’, and our 401k plans which are meticulously timed to be halved in a corrupted game of bubbles and stock market crashes to benefit themselves.

    What a delightfully true, in your face title for his website.

    If Donald Trump ‘converts’ to Catholicism, that will be a sign of who he really works for.
