The Full List Of 2013's Bilderberg Attendees

Tyler Durden's picture


The only thing more ominous for the world than a Hindenburg Omen sighting is a Bilderberg Group meeting. The concentration of politicians and business leaders has meant the organisation, founded at the Bilderberg Hotel near Arnhem in 1954, has faced accusations of secrecy. Meetings take place behind closed doors, with a ban on journalists. We suspect the agenda (how the US and Europe can promote growth, the way 'big data' is changing 'almost everything', the challenges facing the continent of Africa, and the threat of cyber warfare) has been somewhat re-arranged as market volatility picks up and the status quo begins to quake once again.  The annual gathering of the royalty, statesmen, and business leaders, conspiratorially believed to run the world (snubbing their Illuminati peers and Freemason fellows), will take place this week at the Grove Hotel in London, England. The Telegraph provides the full list of attendees below - for those autogrpah seekers - including Britain's George Osborne, US' Henry Kissinger, Peter Sutherland (the chairman of Goldman Sachs), the Fed's Kevin Warsh, Jeff Bezos?, Peter Thiel, Italy's Mario Monti, and Spain's de Guindos.

    Turbo's presence is an indication that the Bildeberger Meeting, much like the CFR, is no longer of any real significance. Some other meeting/group yet generally unknown, and to be discovered 5-10 years from the time it started is where the real action is. The Bildberger meeting is probably held more as a distraction,and to keep the public from searching for the most recent grouping.

    Jones is a good opportunist & business man (like Rush Limbaugh).  Alex used his bullhorn as his "Entrance Strategy" in his biz model, and the media empire and 'caching-caching' is his "Exit Strategy", as they say in VC circles.

    He simply made CT (Conspiracy Theories) big business, and thus becomes a 'fly strip' for all the "CT flies".  Just like OBL was.  Sorry to be so blunt.

    FWIW, re Syria, from the military and intelligence agency veterans' site, Veterans Today - amazing claim that Russia is on the verge of being ready to destroy Israel with a nuke, with Obama and US military accepting this -

    Says that Syria recently sank an Israeli submarine with nuclear missiles, involved in operations against Syria

    And that in revenge, some of the recent explosions in Syria were actually a small but nuclear cruise missile warhead fired by Israel

    In response to that, Putin not only deployed the Russian missile defece throughout Syria, but also called Obama, and said the next time Israel uses a nuclear weapon, Russia will destroy Israel with a nuke in response

    And that Obama has accepted this, as two sides fight for control inside the US regime (the shadow government in favour of Israel, more traditional military and other forces now opposed to it)

    Amazing if it would be true ... possible last days of Israel, as quite a number of prominent Jews themselves (Henry Kissinger, Israeli journalist Barry Chamish) have suggested

    Iraq told Israel to keep out of its airspace, but iraq has no air force after the US destroyed it. Does that mean Iranian or Russian or Chinese bases in Iraq ?

    Not exactly ... Muslim spring is essentially Sunni religious take over of government. This was already underway in Turkey any way, so what's the point? The current troubles are more likely to form an excuse for Erdogan to destroy Turkey's secularism even faster.

    Assuming TPTB actually have a coherent plan, an unified Sunni enemy for the west to war against seems to be it.

It just so happens that the sociopathic, power mongers use their position to snuff out the rest of the possibilities. Enjoy the shit version you seem so willing to embrace!

Trying to ascribe the achievements of these imprimateurs to the collectivist parasites of Bilderberg is like calling North Korea a free market system - the statement, like your hot air about a movement like Objectivism - of which you know nothing - is riddled with falsehood and Wall Street scumbag marketing.

    HuffPost headlines today: "Why You Might Want to Think Twice About Using Splenda"... "You Probably Won't Want to Eat at Taco Bell After Seeing This."....  Who owns the Huffington Post? And how do they benefit from their power? Who profits from nonstop support of leftist and socialist policies? Who suffers when criticism of Israeli policies is blocked?

    I'll tell you who. The bankers own this and other critical media outlets. And they are used to benefit the bankers' goals and punish the bankers' and friends' competition.

    “A former insider at the World Bank, ex-Senior Counsel Karen Hudes, says the global financial system is dominated by a small group of corrupt, power-hungry figures centered around the privately owned U.S. Federal Reserve. The network has seized control of the media to cover up its crimes, too, she explained. In an interview with The New American, Hudes said that when she tried to blow the whistle on multiple problems at the World Bank, she was fired for her efforts. Now, along with a network of fellow whistleblowers, Hudes is determined to expose and end the corruption. And she is confident of success.” -- Alex Newman, a foreign correspondent for The New American, is currently based in Europe.

    I wish Karen Hudes success with her whistleblowing...I'm sure that there exists widespread, deep and sinister corruption within the banking/financial organisations will not shock a lot of people. It has become ever clearer to me in recent years that they are seeking to control the world. It might be an interesting exercise to identify names/nationalities and ethnicity of the people involved in this criminal conspiracy.

    She will meet formidable obstacles - threats on her life or worse. And we don't know how deeply this financial corruption goes. Does it include the elected political power-elites? hhmmm. If so, might she be arrested at some time and become another Manning?
