Bilderberg 2017: The Agenda and the Full Attendees List

86

This year, the Bilderberg meeting is taking place in Virginia, USA. Here’s a look at the topics that will be discussed at this elite meeting and the full list of attendees. 

The three-day summit of the political and economic elite began on June 1st at the Westfields Marriott in Virginia. The luxury hotel has been on complete lockdown since Wednesday as a team of landscapers have been busy planting trees around the perimeter to protect the site from prying eyes.

This year, Bilderberg meeting is taking at less than 50 miles from the Oval Office, a location that is somewhat symbolic and appropriate. Indeed, the #1 topic of discussion listed on the official Bilderberg website is The Trump Administration: A progress report.

Is the Trump administration working according to plan? Remember that the motto of the elite is Order After Chaos.

Here is the official agenda of the Bilderberg meeting:

  1. The Trump Administration: A progress report
  2. Trans-Atlantic relations: options and scenarios
  3. The Trans-Atlantic defence alliance: bullets, bytes and bucks
  4. The direction of the EU
  5. Can globalisation be slowed down?
  6. Jobs, income and unrealised expectations
  7. The war on information
  8. Why is populism growing?
  9. Russia in the international order
  10. The Near East
  11. Nuclear proliferation
  12. China
  13. Current events

The meeting will include a few members of the White House such as national security adviser HR McMaster, the commerce secretary Wilbur Ross, and Trump’s new strategist, Chris Liddell. Henry Kissinger, a Bilderberg veteran, will also attend. He recently visited Trump at the White House to discuss “Russia and other things”.

The meeting will also include top figures in news and mass media such as the President of Turner International (which owns CNN), the editors of publications The Economist and the London Evening Standard and the head of the British media watchdog organization Ofcom.

Yawn ! For some reason this list of ‘topic titles’ seems a bit of a stretch. I’m starting to think this ‘secret out in the open’ stuff is a dog and pony show while the real leaders Skype from Brussels and who knows where else.

Lol! Possibly true…

Although the list of subjects on the Agenda made me smile slightly. The topics are presented in such a corporate way.

The thought of a group with evil strategic intentions having to sit through lengthy, boring PowerPoint presentations…Not exactly James Bond super villain stuff!! They might be evil but at least they will be incredibly bored…

You take that agenda at face value⁉️

Well, Bilderberg is not about “what” to do. Its is about “how” to do, no matter what. That’s a whole difference.

Whatever it once might have been, the current Bilderberg meetings seem very “outer court”.

No matter what anyone’s agenda is, we all just need to continue to realize the power of numbers and groups. “Why is populism growing?” is like asking “Why are the people suddenly becoming more empathetic to ordinary people?” This is a change in the intellectual climate and they want to know why it’s happening so rapidly. The more we continue to care about one another, the more threatening we become to “them”. Yeah well, here’s my advice to “them”: You know damn well what you’re keeping from us can’t Ben kept from us forever. Every powerful person knows better than to change too much stuff too quickly, and the reason populism is growing is because you’ve gotten sloppy over time, due to your overconfidence in yourselves and lack of confidence in humanity. I shouldn’t have to say this, but I can illustrate what you are in for like this: If… Read more »

Populism = poeple majority = democracy. That’s why politic men and medias hate populism.

I think I agree with you…

Any idea why any Latin American country never participated in those meeting?

South america does not bend to the bullies

false! as South American I can tell you that South America is always the first to bend. Even those that don’t look like puppets, are in fact, puppets. I.E. Venezuela is involved in the worldwide network of drug dealing.

Define “bend.” I recently met a guy from Ecuador, who told me how the Chinese are pouring money into his and other SA countries in the form of “loans” with deferred payments, which they’ll all have to start paying back in a couple of years. If they can’t pay, China will pretty much OWN them. In the interim, the people of these SA countries think that the economy is doing great, blissfully unaware that it’s all due to this huge influx of Chinese cash…

Please read the book CONFESSIONS OF AN ECONOMIC HITMAN, Perkins and his More Confessions book which deals with this country call the united States of America. He shows and has walked the walk of creating the “bending” of South America from the 60s forward. China has stepped in now because the USA Inc. has bleed those countries dry so the people are docile. The cycle continues on burying these countries under more debt with major corrupt leaders, i.e., Venezuela. Just a different payor.

Its mostly american and west European guys that attend the meetings.

There are women there too..not just MEN

Wow feminist propaganda again. Such a lon gtime without …. (3 minutes)

They don’t run the world, nor do they try to.

The former president of attended some years ago.

of Chile¨¨

I was wondering the same!
