With the Bilderberg 2016 meeting now humming along at the Taschenbergpalais hotel in Dresden, deep behind closed doors and protected by heavily-armed guards, many have wondered: just how hyperbolic are allegations that the Bilderbergs run the world.
To help readers decide, here is a chart laying out the linkages and various connections – financial, political, statutory and otherwise – between the handful of people who comprise the Bilderberg core and the rest of the world.

As reported previously, starting today politicians, bankers, influential leaders, chiefs of major global businesses, even actors and pundits will meet at the 64th Bilderberg meeting, set to take place over the next three days at the Taschenbergpalais Hotel in Dresden, Germany, where the official agenda will be quite different from what will really be discussed (read this for a full breakdown).
Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is set to rub shoulders with disgraced ex-CIA (and current KKR director) Director David H. Petraeus, Philip M. Breedlove, former Supreme Allied Commander Europe, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, ex-British MI6 chief John Sawers and IMF boss Christine Lagarde at the
The conference, surrounded by tight hundreds of heavily armed guards and concrete blocks, is notoriously secretive in its discussions which take place under Chatham House rules (nothing can be revealed), and regularly attracts demonstrations against what critics describe as a global meeting of western capitalists, politicians and academics who wield great power behind the scenes.
Every year, the world’s richest and most powerful business executives, bankers, media heads and politicians sit down in some luxurious and heavily guarded venue, and discuss how to shape the world in a way that maximizes profits for all involved, while perpetuating a status quo that has been highly beneficial for a select few, even if it means the ongoing destruction of the middle class. We are talking, of course, about the annual, and always secretive, Bilderberg meeting.
And, as the Guardian notes, “you know Bilderberg’s about to begin when you start seeing the guns.”
The Taschenbergpalais hotel in Dresden – the venue of “Bilderberg 2016” which starts tomorrow and continues until June 12 – is filling up with pistol-packing plainclothes security as the last guests are ushered out. The frowning gunslingers head up and down the corridors with their hotel maps, trying door handles and checking the lay of the land while, down in the hotel lobby, corporate goons gather in muttering huddles.
Elitists seek to eviscerate online anonymity, chill free speech
The secretive Bilderberg Group is set to discuss plans to implement an Internet ID to eviscerate anonymity on the web as well as a global tax on financial transactions and air travel, according to an inside source who spoke to Infowars.
The clandestine organization is set to begin its annual meeting tomorrow at the Taschenbergpalais Kempinski hotel in Dresden, Germany.
