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.

[ YouTube- CFR Meeting: Zbigniew Brzezinski Fears The Global Awakening ]

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

"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.

Hdawg's picture

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.

if not a bloodline how about a cake line..................

Is it just me, or does everyone in that clip pronounce "geopolitical" in a way that makes it sound like "jew-political"? It is so noticeable, I did a double-take and said "He said WHA?"

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.

As for the latter, that's happening already. It's just not in the press yet.

Gotta cover Miley Cyrus and LiLo. Priorities, priorities...

What are people missing...the give away is already on!  To name but a few....

GM and C ownership to unions at expense of senior secured creditors...abrogation of Contract Law
FDIC proposal to discretionarily treat holders of one class of obligations differently
Debasement of US $ favoring borrowers (Duh)
Blatant political appeasement of entities for political gain (Nebraska, Health Care example)
HFT and flashorders
GSquid Octopus

It's along list, and all managed by the Government.

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.

"yes, and it will be very niiice.."

awesome, who'd have thought Borat's crew would lead the way.

One must wonder if a large portion of the Kazakh populace did not vacation in Iceland.

I wouldn't worry too much about the creditors,

Kazakhstan is loaded with oil, and they can

always barter it to the Chinese

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.

Well, then, seeing as Niall Ferguson is an attendee, and will not say anything that will please this crowd, could somebody make sure he's donned his lead-lined top hat and kevlar vest today? I just don't want to see this awesome bloke leave Sitges in a body bag or, worse yet, having agreed to co-author a new New York Beta Times blog with Mrs. Paula Krugman about the wonders of stimulus spending.

"Niall Ferguson is an attendee, and will not say anything that will please this crowd."

I would not be so sure of that.  They like what he says, I think, because they like to hear their triumphs.  He also is a gold bug.

agreed with lennon.   best way to read fergie (even if you agree with the points that he makes) is between the lines.  there is a reason he's throwing these bones out there in the way that he's doing.   just like ol' georgie soros.

But it's used to give the decision makers apparatus 'ownership' and keep them in line.


Imagine when the middle class people that are currently getting their living standards crushed Google: Bilderberg and start getting links into all the alternative media...the awakening could go parabolic.


Nothing but good news here.

DoChenRollingBearing's picture

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).

That might (maybe) get the awakening into 2nd gear.

Personally I think they are imposing beliefs on eachother, if you know what I mean.

Pure Evil's picture

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.

All currencies are circling the toilet bowl, some just happen to be at the top of the swirl. Spain, like the US and Canada are all at risk. Domino toppling is currently in play
