Well a bunch of opinions yet no real research. Please show me where the Bilderburgers actually run ANYTHING.
The Bilderbergs run practically EVERYTHING, and we have done an extensive amount of research. Here you go, a list of Bilderberg members who attended
this year's meeting. Note- I've enclosed the link, but also enclosed the requested information in this post for ease of reading. The list is
extremely long, but I'm sure you expected that!
Special thanks to NANS for taking pictures of them & getting the list for us!

Here is an incomplete list of Bilderberg occupations in the US:
-Under-Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security
-Senior Managing Director and CEO, Ripplewood Holdings LLC.
"Ripplewood Holdings is making waves in the world of private equity investment. The firm manages more than $2.5 billion in capital, and invests in
automotive retail, food manufacturing, industrial manufacturing, banking, entertainment, and technology. Ripplewood entered the chemical industry when
it bought Kraton, the polymers business of Shell Chemicals (part of Shell Oil). In an effort to expand operations in Japan, the company bought Shinsei
Bank (formerly Long-Term Credit Bank of Japan) and ailing recording label Nippon Columbia. Founder and CEO Timothy C. Collins' zeal for buying iconic
Japan companies has elicited the wrath of Japanese industrialists fearful of foreign ownership."
-Senator (D, New Jersey)
-Executive Vice President, Fannie Mae
-President and CEO, National Bureau of Economic Research.
"The NBER is committed to undertaking and disseminating unbiased economic research among public policymakers, business professionals, and the
academic community......[and] The NBER is the nation's leading nonprofit economic research organization. Twelve of the 31 American Nobel Prize
winners in Economics and three of the past Chairmen of the President's Council of Economic Advisers have been researchers at the NBER."

significant value to the investment. In particular, Perseus invests in companies that have the strategic characteristics described more fully below,

-Member, Defense Policy Board:

and White House. As such, this board of non-elected shady characters is exerting a significant influence on the shaping of U.S. foreign policy."
-Member J.P. Morgan International Council
