Here Come The Bilderbergs: The Complete 2014 Cast And Host Nation Breakdown

Tyler Durden's picture

The only thing more ominous for the world than a Fed raising interest rates 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. As InfoWars notes, the 2014 Bilderberg meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark is taking place amidst a climate of panic for many of the 120 globalists set to attend the secretive confab, with Russia’s intransigence on the crisis in Ukraine and the anti-EU revolution sweeping Europe posing a serious threat to the unipolar world order Bilderberg spent over 60 years helping to build.

It would only be a good start.  The real power brokers send their peasants to do the leg work.

knukles's picture

And get this one

INT Reding, Viviane Vice President and Commissioner for Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, European Commission

Minister for "Fundamental Rights" from a unelected body that represents the power elite, to which not a single person is a "Citizen".

Fuck the EU

Looney's picture

This bunch of nice folks deserves a healthy dose of plutonium-laced cuppa-tea ;-)


knukles's picture

And here's another one: Breedlove, Philip M.    Supreme Allied Commander Europe

Funny how all the industrialists (MIC and contributors) bankers (money, duh) press (propaganda and perceptions management) and military (tip of spear control) are all in the same room together.
Fuck me, the Narrator and Tyler were never even in the same room together as Marla at the same time!

Talk about Conspiracies!

And just 5 years ago, AJ was being slighted as a fucknutcase with shit like this..
Fucking Conspiracy Theory turning again into Conspiracy Fact, again

There are no Conspiracy Theories.  They're all Based in Fact

Looney's picture

Awww... Marla... Yeah, I know...  ;-)


Hexagon's picture

This is so ridiculous this is funny..., really?

Who is supposed to believe this? Any time ZH posts something like that, its credibility takes a hit...

Just by looking at the list of european politicians included in this list, you know the guy that made up this BS knows next to nothing about european politics.

Thanks for the good laugh though. Seeing such a concentration of insanity in the comments is very entertaining...

the mayor of atlanta is attending.  

big event!!!!  :-P

"...with Russia’s intransigence on the crisis in Ukraine and the anti-EU revolution sweeping Europe posing a serious threat to the unipolar world order Bilderberg spent over 60 years helping to build. "


While no one from Russian is invited, interesting three Chinese (including one China expert from USA) are invited...

One of the two from China, Liu He is a Xi confidant.

Ghordius's picture

I have a different angle to your criticism: what about freedom? Bilderberg is a private meeting. those are all both public officials and private people

what's the alternative? planting bugs on them so that every word they say or listen to can be scrutinized by the public, best on YouTube? (yes, this is a straw man. burn it, if you can)

you can twist it in any way you want, what they do is meet, talk and listen to each other (and afterwards even release minutes, though without names)

of course it helps them to know what the others think about certain things, and of course it builds consensus - where consensus can be found

it's a debate club for appointed elites. with some royals (inviting) and some elected politicians. lots of American ones with quotas for their allies. so?

site is real, or at least it fooled the Guardian's fact checking team on release anyway

and the all Wiki editors 



Sean7k's picture

Don't forget Etienne Davignon. Dont see any "Olympians" but a few 300 committee members. Just remember folks, these are the puppets pulling the strings on the puppets you elect to office. Why is Kissinger still alive? Is he just a cyborg now?

aVileRat's picture

Fount of youth jello shooters. 3 million a hit.

Kennedy wanted to sell the formula to Coke to fund the space program but that was the final straw.

True story~



moonstears's picture

"Why is Kissinger still alive?" I'm guessing frequent blood transfusions from younger people and regular injections of semen in the anus.

Ya, Hey Tylers, can't you screening for a new Marla?

Come on.

weburke's picture

they all assume so much, like they will survive culling. They assume maintaining the world of the well to do is high on the real agenda.

old naughty's picture

"USA Petraeus, David H. Chairman, KKR Global Institute"

is that the Major General?

The movie "The Pope Of Grennwich Village" comes to mind. Eric Roberts gives Paulie a cup of tea laced with lime.

That's fine too.  In 2 years we will finish off the next list.  Soon they will begin to get the picture.

Regretfully, I had to decline my invitation.  It's hunting season near my Fortress of Solitude and I need to club the perfect baby seal to finish my mittens.

knukles's picture

Will you be sharing the blood to take the place of that of small innocent children since that'll all be used between this years Bilderberg and Bohemian Grove?

813kml's picture

Heavens no, the ritual requires sodomy before sacrifice and bloodletting to keep the essence pure.  Beastiality is frowned on in the power circles, members tend to be strictly plain vanilla sociopathic sadist pedophiles.

By the by, baby seal tears work wonders on chapped lips.

Where in the fuck are the Chinese and Brown People?

Bollixed's picture

Didn't see an invite for Ron Paul, either...

sleigher's picture

He is on the other list.  The list of attendees who are not to be made public.  Controlled opposition and all that.

JoeSexPack's picture

Not many entreprenuers or self-made types on there.


Mostly corporate & gov't drones that support the status quo.



benb's picture

He is on the other list all right.  The list the attendees want to see in a plane crash.

Where's the military when we need them? Sworn to protect us against our enemies?

10 Hellfire Missiles could go a long way in ridding us of this filth.

wow.  0 russians, 0 japanese, 2 nobodies from china? 

ForTheWorld's picture

No Australians either, but then again, I can't blame them for not inviting any of the morons running around this place.

UselessEater's picture

the graph shows 2 from "Austrlia"...... Rupert Murdoch attends I don't what he's counted as. Anyway I'm sure our resources and serfdom is not forgotten in their planning & plotting.

However I take exception to saying we're run by 'morons'; we are run by useful-idiots ;)


ForTheWorld's picture

I took it as a misspelled Austria, because there's a few Austrians in attendance. I do agree that our resources will be on the agenda.

As for useful idiots - they'd make good human shields, so they do have some use.

savagegoose's picture

The chart of  attendees by country has 1 aussie but non on the list?  hmmm kylie is singing?


silverserfer's picture

this isint a fucking episode of sesami street. Ya they're all prett much white, racist, sociopath elite Europpeans/Westerners hell bent on world domination thru banking and government. Duh. 

Sean7k's picture

The Li family is big in the triads. Chinese finance as well. They're represented. 

The Bilderbergers are mainly a european concoction with some american flavor. The tri-lateral commission include the others.
