(The list is based on James Wardner, Planned Destruction of America, p. 143.)
Bilderberg participants denied the group's very existence for decades until forced into the open by the glare of media publicity, generated largely by The SPOTLIGHT (300 Independence Ave., SE, Washington, D.C. 20003) and its newsletter-format predecessors, "Liberty Letter" and "Liberty Lowdown" (the latter publication is now defunct).
These leaders take care of "world" business. Even the decision to divide Germany into East and West was made by men who later proved to be Bilderbergers. (Peter Thompson, "Bilderberg and The West," in Sklar, Trilateralism, Part III, Chap. 2, p. 160.)
Liberty Lowdown, (Washington DC Liberty Lobby, July 1974). "As soon as the Bilderbergers got home from their April 1971 meeting in Woodstock, Vermont, billions of dollars started mysteriously flooding out of America." Four months later the dollar was no longer convertible into gold, and thereafter the administration let the dollar float (i.e., no fixed value against gold or any other reserve asset). The increasing flow of dollars out of America and into Europe continued until just before the devaluation. On December 18, 1971, the dollar was devalued 8.5 percent. This devaluation signaled the end of American finance independence. By conspiring against the dollars, they sold the dollars short, thereby making a profit equal approximately $15-$20 billion.
The noted British authority on international groups, A.K. Chesterton, in "The New Unhappy Lords," asserts "...it will be seen that the proper study of political mankind is the study of power elites, without which nothing that happens can be understood...." ("The New Unhappy Lords, An Exposure of Power Politics", in Liberty Lowdown: A Confidential Washington Report, Washington D.C.: Liberty Lobby, p. 9.) "I affirm that the influences behind the European movement which made use of Retinger's (secretary general, Bilderberg meeting, Buxton, Derbyshire, 1958) idealism are, from a national and Christian point of view, thoroughly unwholesome and indeed evil in that what they seek is monopoly of political and financial power. Evil, too, is the method ... I propose to designate them as the chosen lackeys of the New York Money Power charged with the task of plotting to bring into being a One World tyranny." (A.K. Chesterton, The New Unhappy Lords, An Exposure of Power Politics, Hawthorne, CA: Christian Boys Club of America, 1969).
Senator John R. Rarick as he disclosed the secret workings of the Bilderbergers to the House of Representatives:
"This exclusive international aristocracy holds highly secret meetings annually or more often in various countries. The limited information available about what transpires at these meetings reveals that they discuss matters of vital importance which affect the lives of all citizens. Presidential Advisor Henry Kissinger, who made a secret visit to Peking from July 9 to July 11, 1971, and arranged for a presidential visit to Red China, was reported to be in attendance at the most recent Bilderberg meeting held in Woodstock, Vermont, April 23 to April 25, 1971. The two points reportedly discussed at the Woodstock meeting were, 'the contribution of business in dealing with current problems of social instability' and 'the possibility of a change of the American role in the world and its consequences.'
"Following these secret discussions, which are certainly not in keeping with the Western political tradition of 'open covenants openly arrived at,' the participants returned to their respective countries with the general public left uninformed, notwithstanding the attendance of some news media representatives, of any of the recommendations and plans agreed upon as a result of the discussions -- or for that matter even the occurrence of the meeting itself." (John R. Rarick, Congressional Record, 92nd Congress, 1st Session, Wednesday, Volume 117, No. 133, 15 September 1971, pp. E9615-E9624.)
Dr. Wardner provides us with a list of names in the steering committee:
Honorable John R. Rarick from the Congressional Record: " All the Americans on the Steering Committee are members or officers of the Council on Foreign Relations in New York City, an organization that has a more than symbiotic relation with the Rockefeller-Standard Oil empire...." Senator Rarick went on to list the banks and corporations that are represented at Bilderberg:
