As For That Little "Secret" Shindig In Sitges, Spain...

Tyler Durden's picture


Love them or hate them, they sure know how to pick nice, and soon to be insolvent, resorts. After meeting in Vouliagmeni, Greece in 2009, 6 months before it was uncovered the country is glaringly bankrupt, the Bilderberg group is doing its annual resort camp out in the Barcelona resort town of Sitges this weekend. Regardless of one's opinions of the Logan Act, any meeting that will probably see Tim Geithner and Ben Bernanke as its attendees should likely have much more press exposure. Either way, if the Greece "study" is any case in point to the near-term consequences of what one can expect, it may be time to really load up on Spain CDS. And not only - the least subtle headline of the day comes courtesy of the Telegraph, that the "Euro will be dead in five years", and goes on to say: "The single currency is in its death throes and may not survive in its current
membership for a week,
let alone the next five years, according to a
selection of responses to the survey – the first major wide-ranging litmus
test of economic opinion in the City since the election." Secret meeting lore aside, one can be certain that the primary topic of discussion in Sitges' Dolce hotel will be what to do with the euro. We would be very wary of whatever kneejerk reaction is provoked in the market come late afternoon when the EURUSD starts trading again.

The Telegraph does a good job of separating the Bilderberg fact from fiction in the following article, and RT has a good video clip summary of this weekend's events for the reading challenged.

"it is easier to kill a single Zbigniew Brzezinski , than control a million people."

I would say the reverse is true. Pretty simple to control billions and ZB still lives. so does Henry K, W, Poppy and far too many "power brokers" to name.

That was certainly the case over the last 50 years, when everyone was asleep, I'm a touch more optimistic...I would like to think that coverage of these meetings is superb progress especially as we enter into this economic disaster.  When Mr average worker, policeman, civil servant (alot feel something is very wrong in the world but don't know where to look)  starts Googling the likes of The Bilderberg it could turn out a bit rougher for these people than we think.  Everyone pick a bloodline.

Baghdad Barrack


With Romer, Summers, and Geithner, the President has managed to put together the economic scream team. Even Volcker is starting to look tired and ineffective. His recent proposal of a VAT, the most regressive of taxes, sounded less like a democratic reform and more like something from the Bilderberg playbook. One has to wonder how long will it be until they start recommending the sale of key sovereign assets to corporate oligarchs.

A few days ago, Kazakhstan announced that it had completed the restructuring of BTA, one of the largest Kazakh banks, by imposing severe haircuts on investors holding BTA bonds and loans. These creditors, which include ABN Amro, Commerzbank, Standard Chartered, ING, KfW, and funds DE Shaw and Fortis Investment Management, have effectively had to swallow some $6.8bn of write-downs to enable the bank to cuts its debt burden from $12.2bn to $4.4bn.


Hence, some of the powerful western creditors who held the debt of BTA and other banks started pushing for a furtive state rescue, of sorts – and warned that if this did not occur Kazakh-style financial Armageddon would occur. However, to its credit, the Kazakh government faced down some of the more aggressive western banks by insisting on something rarely seen anywhere in the world: an orderly restructuring, with creditor haircuts, of a still-functioning bank.

Well organized criminals never make decisions at large sitdowns like this.

 Bilderberg is just a gathering intended to allow the mega capitalists to impose their beliefs on a collection of worldwide government attendees....not the other way around. A demonstration of solidarity is always important when it comes to gang banging elected or appointed " leaders " and a perfect setting in which to winnow out the unwilling.

Those with opposing views or alternate strategies are, of course, considered bad company and will be earmarked for future destruction.

The real decisions take place elsewhere.

Hdawg, what a brilliant observation!  If the masses start Googling Bilderbergs (etc.) they will read some of the stuff that most of US read (at least sometimes).

I believe they're all whores bought and paid for, tiny actors playing their parts up on stage.

If you had a conscious and any moral and ethical standards, you wouldn't attend the meetings in the first place.

But, money and lots of it, can sooth any qualms one has about the integrity of the Bilderburgs.

Money and lots of it, has a way of raising you from the greasy mud pits the majority of the human population endures, into the rarified stratosphere of, who gives a fuck about the little people, let them eat cake.

Better to be rich and powerful, no matter how much an illusion that is, than to be a Dalit, or untouchable, crawling in the dirt before those that delusionally believe they're better than you, while using violence and severe punishment to hold you in the pigsty.

No, you don't become rich and powerful because the god's smiled upon you one day, you become rich and powerful because you sold your soul to Satan.

All Greeks are phucking Nazis--and they're now at zero.  Their worthless nation is dead and it should be.  C'est la vie.  Spain is totally different.  This is an empire--strongly Catholic to boot.  They won't fold like a flaming Greek.  My bet is on the Italians getting "exterminated" since they long ago gave up on their Catholic faith in return for "A Few Dollars More."  Pigs indeed.  But first we have "Switzerland."  Hmmm.  2 banks so big they're bigger than the country.

When decision makers meet in secret, it is usually because they plan to promulgate a policy that is so flawed that not only will it be strenuously resisted by those affected, not only would it not pass a smell test by a disinterested party, but they themselves studiously avoid doing even a cursory analysis because they know it will fail. If you are near but not privy to one of these meetings you might hear the curious phenomenon I call the "laughter of the damned," which sounds like guilt so tangible it can be carried on waves through the air.

Of course, in this case they could just be a group of kindly, philanthropic souls who have a wonderful present for everybody and don't want to spoil the surprise.

Here is something for all the conspiracy theorists.  With the links (IMF, Swap Facilities, etc.) between the dollar and The Union of European Socialist Republics, if the euro goes, so goes the dollar.  One single currency for North America AND The USER?


Just a conspiratorial thought.

Nah, they can't pull it off. A private gold standard would be a de facto world currency.

Look, Bilderberg etc. couldn't even get anyone to respect the ICC. There's no way they can pull together a world currency.

If they would quit worrying about the DOW and the S&P, and concentrate on the economy by actually creating real longterm jobs, instead of fake temporary census jobs, then the country would start growing again.  This administration, who's first claim was they don't care about Wall St, sure have not shown us that.  Everything they have done is completely encased around propping up Scam St and its crooked bankers. They need to let the likes of JPM, Shittybank, WFC, BAC, and GS falter and collapse. Unwind their crap derivatives and let's start to heal. Until that happens, more suffering.


If they would have given the trillions in stimulus to the people in the form of a large lump sum of money, we would already be back in business and out of the depression.  They screwed up when they gave free money to the bankers.  That simple.  A debt free people have money to spend.  Giving money to the banks, and telling them to lend more to people already hocked up to their necks, is not going to create jobs or help people get to a level where they have money to spend.

Your comment could not be more wrong.


1.  Government does not create jobs.

2.  The only way to solve the problem is to purge the debt.

The only difference between your proposals and what has actually happened is that in your proposal you would get the money instead of Goldman Sachs.  Seriously, dude.  Try harder.

Its not that simple.

The banks are insolvent , bust.  And all the "stimulus" packages and bailouts etcetc are simply to safe them and not main street.  To keep the power brokers alive they needed TAX dollars of which you , me and dupree , see fuk all back apart from HIGHER TAXES.  Yes , you should be angry. This is far beyond simple economics , its about power and influence.

If Ben Bernanke really wanted to kill deflation or stimulate the economy he could wire 200k into 50 million househoulds and sit back and watch the fireworks. The result wouldnt be any worse in the long run , it would funnily enough stimulate small and mid cap businesses to the extent we would be shielded from the ensuing bank runs and collapses.

At the end of the day , this banking cartel and dead. Its lose lose for them. The parasite , them , is either going to kill the host , us , or they are going to die to Darwinism.

If regulators allowed it , i could set up a bank tomorrow and ensure i dont blow up. Id stimulate the economy in my region because i wouldnt have any interested in power , politics or influence. Id simply be doing a job.

Wall St simply has turned into Frankensteins monster.

 euro denominated countries should be considered dangerously incompetent if they are not now secretly planning backup currencies for immediate use.

I don't exactly see anything better coming out of MSNBC, CNN, NYT, WaPo, etc

Wake up and smell the sulpfur, in case you haven't noticed, the current political establishment throws out crumbs to their bases, but the REAL agenda for BOTH parties is providing cover for TPTB.

Before Obama was the cadidate I saw a conspiracy video about this group. the video stated Obama would be elected. he would run and be seen as the anit bush (african american muslim middle name) he would talk about change, but do nothing. the sole purpose of his presidency getting wealth back to the wealthy they lost in the "crisis"


I didn't believe it at the time. But I kept it in the back of my mind because I couldn't understand how all these polices to "help" the economy

were being adopted that wouldn't work. no debt haircuts, etc. I could easily see how the policies would hep bankers, but they made no economic sense to me. After seeing energy reform, healthcare reform, financial reform, and still being in Iraq, more folks in Afghanistan I in fact have decided I believe that first video I saw.


 interesting to learn the British guy who didn't want to go along with plans died!!!. they apparently picked the next british guy. I mean how many times do you see a pattern to say it appears to be more factual than not.
