Daily Caller Senior Editor Jamie Weinstein visited “Occupy Bilderberg” Thursday outside a Marriott hotel in Chantilly, Va.¬†to see what all the commotion was about and talk to some protesters.

The Bilderberg meeting is an annual gathering of influential political, media and business figures. Since the meetings are by invitation only and held in secrecy, conspiracy theorists project them as gatherings with awesome powers, and speculate that participants are laying the groundwork for a one-world government. Some even allege they have the power to select the next American president.

It is believed that this year’s conference ended Sunday.

Weinstein also¬†encountered¬†arch-conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on-site, and had an enlightening discussion with one anti-Bilderberg protester who told TheDC to “go fuck yourself.”
