In my previous post I stated the membership of the Bilderberg Group was unknown/unverifiable. It turns out that that lists of membership are floating around the internet – though some members are speculative, others have been verified by multiple sources
Membership seems to be revolving – some are life members, while some country representatives rotate each year. The group’s size is approximately 130 members at each annual meeting.
What do they discuss: New World Order? How to keep the black man down? Interaction with extra-terrestrial life? Despite the presence of media moguls such as Rupert Murdoch and journalists such as Peter Jennings and Bill Moyers, the media never reports the content of discussions.
Notable US Political attendees have included:
Former Presidents Bill Clinton and Gerald Ford
Former Vice Presidents Dan Quayle, Walter Mondale and Nelson Rockerfeller
Former Secretaries of State Colin Powell and Henry Kissinger
Former (and current) President(s) of the World Bank Paul Wolfowitz, Robert McNamara, and Robert Zoellick
Current United States Senators:
Hillary Clinton, Chris Dodd, Jay Rockerfeller, Kay Bailey Hutchison, Chuck Hagel,and Dianne Feinstein
Former United States Senators:
John Edwards, George J Mitchell, and Adlai Stevenson III
Former Democratic Party Chairman: Terry McAuliffe
Former Republican Party Chairman: Ken Mehlman
US political participants have included a diverse cross-section of hundreds of former Senators, Congressmen, Treasury Secretaries, National Security Advisers, Governors and Ambassadors; most participated in only 1 conference.
Also represented are some notable corporate leaders and private citizens:
Lord Conrad Black – Chairman of Hollinger International (recently sentenced to 6 yrs in prison)
Louis V. Gerstner – Former Chairman of IBM; Current Chairman of the Carlyle Group
Eric Schmidt – Chairman and CEO of GOOGLE
Josef Ackermann – CEO of Deutsche Bank
Dwayne Andreas – Chairman and CEO of Archer Daniels Midland
Rupert Murdoch – Chairman and CEO of News Corp.

Bill Moyers – Journalist, Public Broadcasting Service

I like the diversity of ideology of the US participants, and looking at the full list, it seems a majority of the group represents the US. If this group is attempting to take over the world, I’m satisfied that US interests are being represented.
