The following is a list of prominent persons who are known to have attended one or more conferences organized by the Bilderberg Group. The list is currently organized by category. It is not a complete list and it includes both living and deceased people. Where known, the year(s) they attended are denoted in brackets.
European Union Commissioners who have attended include:
“What do Henry Kissinger, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Colin Powell, David Rockefeller and IBM Chairman Louis Gerstner have in common?
“They are among 120 dignitaries from Europe and the United States meeting at a secluded resort in Georgia as part of an organization called the Bilderberg Group.
“For four days that began Thursday, the group’s influential guests are part of an informal think tank on world issues.”
Spanish Florida (Spanish: La Florida) refers to the Spanish territory of Florida, which formed part of the Captaincy General of Cuba, the Viceroyalty of New Spain, and the Spanish Empire. Originally extending over what is now the southeastern United States, but with no defined boundaries, Florida was a component of the Spanish colonization of the Americas and the expansion of the Spanish Empire. Wide-ranging expeditions were mounted into the hinterland during the 16th century, but Spain never exercised complete control over Florida outside an area of what is now the State of Florida, southern Georgia, southern Alabama, southern Mississippi southeastern Louisiana, and other areas along the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico.

The Bilderberg Group, Bilderberg conference, or Bilderberg Club is an annual private conference of approximately 120 to 140 invited guests from North America and Europe, most of whom are people of influence. About one-third are from government and politics, and two-thirds from finance, industry, labour, education and communications.
The original conference was held at the Hotel de Bilderberg in Oosterbeek, Netherlands, from 29 to 31 May 1954. It was initiated by several people, including Polish politician-in-exile Jzef Retinger, concerned about the growth of anti-Americanism in Western Europe, who proposed an international conference at which leaders from European countries and the United States would be brought together with the aim of promoting Atlanticism better understanding between the cultures of the United States and Western Europe to foster cooperation on political, economic, and defense issues.
Retinger approached Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands who agreed to promote the idea, together with former Belgian Prime Minister Paul Van Zeeland, and the head of Unilever at that time, Dutchman Paul Rijkens. Bernhard in turn contacted Walter Bedell Smith, then head of the CIA, who asked Eisenhower adviser Charles Douglas Jackson to deal with the suggestion. The guest list was to be drawn up by inviting two attendees from each nation, one of each to represent conservative and liberal points of view. Fifty delegates from 11 countries in Western Europe attended the first conference, along with 11 Americans.
The success of the meeting led the organizers to arrange an annual conference. A permanent steering committee was established, with Retinger appointed as permanent secretary. As well as organizing the conference, the steering committee also maintained a register of attendee names and contact details, with the aim of creating an informal network of individuals who could call upon one another in a private capacity. Conferences were held in France, Germany, and Denmark over the following three years. In 1957 the first U.S. conference was held on St.Simons Island, Georgia, with $30,000 from the Ford Foundation. The foundation supplied further funding for the 1959 and 1963 conferences.
Meetings are organized by a steering committee with two members from each of approximately 18 nations. Official posts, in addition to a chairman, include an Honorary Secretary General. There is no such category in the group’s rules as a “member of the group”. The only category that exists is “member of the Steering Committee”. In addition to the committee, there also exists a separate advisory group, though membership overlaps.
Dutch economist Ernst van der Beugel became permanent secretary in 1960, upon Retinger’s death. Prince Bernhard continued to serve as the meeting’s chairman until 1976, the year of his involvement in the Lockheed affair. The position of Honorary American Secretary General has been held successively by Joseph E. Johnson of the Carnegie Endowment, William Bundy of Princeton, Theodore L. Eliot, Jr., former U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan, and Casimir A. Yost of Georgetown’s Institute for the Study of Diplomacy.
A 2008 press release from the ‘American Friends of Bilderberg’ stated that “Bilderberg’s only activity is its annual Conference. At the meetings, no resolutions are proposed, no votes taken, and no policy statements issued” and noted that the names of attendees were available to the press. The Bilderberg group’s unofficial headquarters is the University of Leiden in the Netherlands.
According to the ‘American Friends of Bilderberg’, the 2008 agenda dealt “mainly with a nuclear free world, cyber terrorism, Africa, Russia, finance, protectionism, US-EU relations, Afghanistan and Pakistan, Islam and Iran”.
Historically, attendee lists have been weighted towards bankers, politicians, and directors of large businesses.
Heads of state, including King Juan Carlos I of Spain and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, have attended meetings. Prominent politicians from North America and Europe are past attendees. In past years, board members from many large publicly traded corporations have attended, including IBM, Xerox, Royal Dutch Shell, Nokia and Daimler.

Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss is getting some blowback online for remarks he made to Politico about gay marriage. Asked if he might ever reconsider his opposition to marriage equality, Senator Chambliss is quoted as saying: “I’m not gay, so I’m not going to marry one.”
Predictably, this has sparked a slew of mocking headlines and comments.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution, Chambliss’s hometown paper, went with “Gay Marriage? Saxby Chambliss says he’s taken.” Talking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall posted simply: “Tough Hurdle: So Sen. Saxby Chambliss has to become gay apparently before he’ll support marriage equality.” New York Magazine’s Jon Chait joked: “Given that personal experience seems to be how Republican senators change their minds on the issue, I would urge gay-rights groups to introduce some handsome, charming guys to Senator Chambliss and see if sparks fly.”
RECOMMENDED: Focus Republican Party 2.0: 4 GOP leaders share ideas for political upgrade
What’s interesting to us about Chambliss’s “quip,” however inartful, is that it doesn’t really sound like strident opposition. Unlike previous election cycles, when most Republicans were actively promoting legislative measures to prevent gay marriage, these days they seem to be taking pains to emphasize that their opposition to it is strictly personal.
Policy-wise, they’re no longer pushing for a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, but increasingly arguing that it is an issue that should be left up to the states. And more and more GOP officials like Chambliss are describing their views with lines that sound almost like “this old dog can’t learn new tricks.” The implication: they’re not really trying to fight the tide of history. They’re just asking to be allowed to maintain their own views.
We heard the same kind of tone in House Speaker John Boehner’s comments on the subject last weekend on ABC’s “This Week.” Asked about Ohio Sen. Rob Portman’s recent announcement that he now supports gay marriage, Mr. Boehner said he could not envision himself having a similar change of heart. “Listen, I believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman,” Boehner said. “It’s what I grew up with. It’s what I believe. It’s what my church teaches me. And I can’t imagine that position would ever change.” Asked how he could justify denying Portman’s son, who is gay, the right to marry, Boehner added: “Listen I think that Rob can make up his his own mind, take his own position.”

This rhetorical shift seems in line with the conclusion in the Republican National Committee’s recent “autopsy report” that Republicans must offer a more inclusive posture on issues like gay marriage, which, it said, is causing many young people to view the GOP as “totally intolerant of alternative views.” According to the report: “there is a generational difference within the conservative movement about issues involving the treatment and the rights of gays and for many younger voters, these issues are a gateway into whether the Party is a place they want to be. If our Party is not welcoming and inclusive, young people and increasingly other voters will continue to tune us out.”
This week a new Washington Post/ABC poll found a record 58 percent of Americans now believe gay marriage should be legal, including 52 percent of Republicans between the ages of 18 and 29.

BETHLEHEM, West Bank (AP) Pilgrims and locals celebrated Christmas Day on Tuesday in the ancient Bethlehem church built over the site where tradition holds Jesus was born, candles illuminating the sacred site and the joyous sound of prayer filling its overflowing halls.
Overcast skies and a cold wind didn’t dampen the spirits of worshippers who came dressed in holiday finery and the traditional attire of foreign lands to mark the holy day in this biblical West Bank town. Bells pealed and long lines formed inside the fourth-century Church of the Nativity complex as Christian faithful waited eagerly to see the grotto that is Jesus’ traditional birthplace.
Duncan Hardock, 24, a writer from MacLean, Va., traveled to Bethlehem from the republic of Georgia, where he had been teaching English. After passing through the separation barrier Israel built to ward off West Bank attackers, he walked to Bethlehem’s Manger Square where the church stands.
“I feel we got to see both sides of Bethlehem in a really short period of time,” Hardock said. “On our walk from the wall, we got to see the lonesome, closed side of Bethlehem … But the moment we got into town, we’re suddenly in the middle of the party.”
Bethlehem lies 10 kilometers (6 miles) south of Jerusalem. Entry to the city is controlled by Israel, which occupied the West Bank in 1967.
Hardock’s girlfriend, 22-year-old Jennifer Gemmell of Longmont, Colorado, compared the festive spirit in Manger Square on Christmas Eve, saying “it’s like being at Times Square at New Year’s.”
The cavernous church was unable to hold all the worshippers who had hoped to celebrate Christmas Day Mass inside. A loudspeaker outside the church broadcast the service to the hundreds in the square who could not pack inside.
Tourists in the square posed for pictures as vendors hawked olive wood rosaries, nativity scenes, corn on the cob, roasted nuts, tea and coffee.
An official from the Palestinian tourism ministry predicted 10,000 foreigners would visit Bethlehem on Christmas Day and said 15,000 visited on Christmas Eve up 20 percent from a year earlier. The official, Rula Maia’a, attributed the rise in part to the Church of the Nativity’s classification earlier this year as a U.N. World Heritage Site.
Christians from Israel Arab citizens and others also boosted the number of visitors.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg presides over the wedding of Jonathan Mintz (left), the city’s consumer affairs commissioner, and John Feinblatt (right), a chief adviser to the mayor, along with their daughters Maeve (left) and Georgia at Gracie Mansion in New York July 24, 2011.
Seeing gay marriage legalized in New York wasnt enough for Mayor Bloomberg.
The billionaire mayor this month reached into his own pocket to contribute $250,000 to an effort to pass a gay nups referendum in Maryland.
I dont think you have to be in favor or against [gay marriage], Bloomberg said Friday on his weekly radio show. The real issue is should the government be able to tell you who you can marry and I dont happen to think they should.
The money from the mayors personal piggy bank went to Marylanders for Marriage Equality, a group pushing a referendum on Novembers ballot to uphold a same-sex marriage bill passed earlier this year in the state.
Hizzoner similarly used his personal wealth to back New Yorks law when it went to a vote in Albany last year. He made maximum $10,300 contributions to the four Republicans whose votes were crucial to passing the controversial legislation last June.
Bloombergs involvement in the Maryland fight comes as hes tried to raise his profile on the national and international stage before leaving office at the end of 2013.
The mayor predicted that the Maryland measure would win voter approval because of a growing acceptance of gay nuptials.
I think its something like 10% of the public male female, across all ethnic and economic levels are gay, which means every family on average has somebody, he said.
