    Washington (CNN) - This weekend, at a posh resort near Palm Springs, California, two billionaire corporate titans will convene a semi-annual meeting of a politically well-connected set. It will include wealthy donors and powerful Republicans, including House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

    At David and Charles Koch's meeting, attendees will discuss items like how best to promote free markets and how to help elect conservatives. Donors are expected to be asked to donate to conservative causes.

    It will be conducted virtually in secret, with no press or public allowed and many attendees keeping event details on the hush.

    That's fueled criticism that this gathering is a sort of secret cabal - a "Billionaires Caucus," critics say. Robert Reich, former Labor Secretary in the Clinton administration, even said that the Koch brothers' meeting represents "a threat to our democracy."

    Talk about tin-foil head crazy conspiracies and bad timing. The (anti-semitic) left alleges that the NY based philanthropists "Koch Brothers" are conspiring to take over the Country while crazy internet messages are promoting rallies in several major cities in support of the riots in Egypt.

    China has been planning our future for about 100 years. They've almost got enough power to act on it.

    If it's so 'secret', how come CNN are reporting it? Anyone see the flaw in this assertion?
