Powerful Bilderberg Group's Tax Returns

The Bilderberg Group is a secretive club of some of the world’s most powerful people. Formed 58 years ago, the group met for the first time on May 29, 1954, at Hotel de Bilderberg in Oosterbeek in the Netherlands, and derived its name from the hotel.
As described on its official website that has no insignia or symbols, the Bilderberg Group is a “by-invitation-only” club of around 140 very high-power people from the world’s business, finance, oil, politics, media, industry, academia and nobility who meet once a year in “a small, flexible, informal and off-the-record international forum in which different viewpoints can be expressed and mutual understanding enhanced. Bilderberg’s only activity is its annual Conference. At the meetings, no resolutions are proposed, no votes taken, and no policy statements issued.”
The Bilderberg Group customarily meet in some European country or another — France, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Denmark, England, Scotland, Norway. But not this year.
This year, from May 30 to June 3, the Bilderbergers met in the United States — at the Westfield Marriott Hotel in Chantilly, Virginia, just a stone’s throw from Washington, D.C. The last time Bilderberg met in the United States was in 2008.
So what do 2012 and 2008 have in common?
Answer: Both are presidential election years in the United States!
On June 5, 2008 — the first day of the Bilderberg meeting in Chantilly, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton both “mysteriously disappeared” for some hours “somewhere in the DC area,” their agendas blocked out. Two days later, Hillary withdrew from the race and Obama became the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate.
This year too, four staff members of the Westfield Marriott Hotel told The Guardian‘s Charlie Skelton that they saw Mitt Romney at the Bilderberg meeting.
Though extremely secretive, in the United States the Bilderberg group operates under the business entity “American Friends of Bilderberg” as a 501c3 tax exempt foundation.
Since the IRS requires all 501c3 Tax Exempt Foundations to make certain records public, Mark Dice of Stop Making Sense was able to obtain the secretive group’s 2007-2010 tax returns.
In 2008, the American Friends of Bilderberg filed a 22-page tax return c/o James Johnson, Perseus, LLC, 1325 Ave. of the Americas, 25th fl, New York, NY 10019. (James Johnson signed the tax return as “Treasurer”.)
That year, Bilderberg received $645,000 in contributions to fund their annual meeting (travel, hotel, etc.). Below are the contributors and the amounts of their monetary contribution to Bilderberg:

  • Henry Kissinger: $20,000
  • David Rockefeller: $50,000
  • Freeport McMoran Foundation (of New Orleans, LA): $10,000
  • Microsoft: $75,000
  • Marie Josee & Henry R. Kravis Foundation: $50,000
  • The Jennie Zoline Foundation: $25,000
  • Wolfensohn Family Foundation: $25,000
  • Peter Thiel: $75,000
  • Johnson Family Fund: $25,000
  • Big Hen Grkoup [sic] LLC: $75,000
  • Altman/Kazickas Foundation: $25,000
  • The Washington Post Company: $25,000
  • The Ripplewood Foundation Inc: $75,000
  • Goldman Sachs & Co: $25,000
  • Lazard Freres & Co LLC: $25,000
  • RW Sant Revocable Trust: $25,000
  • The Coca Cola Company: $10,000
  • William S Paley Foundation: $5,000

The following is a list of Bilderberg’s officers, directors, trustees, and key employees in 2008 (they are all volunteers as they received $0 in compensation):

  • Marie-Josee Kravis, President/Director
  • James A. Johnson, Treasurer/Director
  • Jessica T. Mathews, Secretary/Director
  • Henry Kissinger, Director
  • David Rockefeller, Director
  • Richard N. Perle, Director
  • Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., Director

Bilderberg’s 2010 Tax Returns listed the following contributors:

  • Botwinick-Wolfensohn Foundation: $25,000
  • Donald Graham (NY): $25,000
  • Peter Thiehl: $50,000
  • Marie Josee Henry R Kravis Foundation: $50,000
  • Freeport-McMoran Foundation: $10,000
  • David Rockefeller: $25,000
  • Henry Kissinger: $10,000

In its 2010 tax returns, Bilderberg listed its “Directors” as Klaus Kleinfeld, James D. Wolfensohn, Roger Caltman, Vernon E. Jordan Jr., Richard N. Perle, David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Jessica T. Mathews (also Secretary), James A. Johnson (also Treasurer), and Marie-Josee Kravis (also President).

Wow Dogs, they really are called the “Bilderberg” group. Wow Dogs. Big, big, wow. As in “oh man.”


Thank you so much Dr. Eowyn for this interesting, well-researched and well-documented post! It is indeed noteworthy that the “adjusted qualifying distributions for 2008 were $925,724.00,” as opposed to the year 2005-$98,063.00, 2006-$114,166.00, 2007-$100,063.00 and 2009-$85,223.00. What a disparity coincidentally, inasmuch as this was the election year for our country! I will continue to review the tax returns more carefully. . .


Likely, every American president since the inception of this group has made a pilgrimage to kiss the rings of these leeches. We didn’t for a moment think that Romney would not be summoned. He was made to wait his turn. Why would such a seemingly accomplished man pause for four years in the prime of his life? That’s because he was chosen to be next. You’ve all seen and heard the overt Bush endorsements of Romney. McCain didn’t get that treatment. He wasn’t chosen. You have to read the signs, they’re right there. The elites knew this move to a… Read more »

Look at all the bigshot foundations on the Bilderberg bandwagon. If congress rescinded the “tax exempt” status from the foundations retroactively, it would rake in at least as much revenue as going after the individuals in the 1%. That’s why Billionaires and multi-national corporations form foundations, to shelter their money from taxes……… duh!


Celestine, although there is some merit in your comments, it is unwise to be such a fatalist without hope. Your comment, “It’s incredible to think that the future of freedom and liberty in the United States and perhaps the continued existence of theUnited States depends on you and me.” Thank God indeed! Yes, it is incredible, which is why our Republic is a government of the people and for the people, which is why our nation is so great! I completely disagree with you that “Barry” and Bush were and/or are on the same team. You provide no specific, substantial… Read more »


Here’s a question for you joandarc. Do you think if Romney blew off the Bilderbergs he could then become the POTUS?
Question 2. I claim Obama is an atheist. I have “no specific, substantial evidence”. I have however eyes to see and ears to hear. Why is it that Barry insists on all religious symbols being covered when he speaks at Notre Dame and Georgetown?

Why is the awakening so slow while the orchestrated events (perpetual wars for perpetual peace!!!!) and the ever-growing poverty and dumbing down of the world’s population are extremely clear signs of this ugly cancerous grouping’s manipulation. This cabal controls all levers in our society because we, the people, let them get away with literal murder. So many of us are awake, we must continue our ardent work to shake up our brothers and sisters and counteract their lies with our truth and facts. We must disempower them by resisting and propagating the TRUTH. Only truth and total resistance, boycotting the… Read more »


Celestine and Dr. Eowyn – It is clear that you know much more about this subject than I do and I am rightfully chastised. Thank you so much for all of the information. Hence, I will assume then that Obama and George Bush, Sr. are on the same team, since that is what I questioned in particular reference to requesting substantial evidence about that conclusion. They are both on a team that wants a “New World Order” and apparently, they have the same ideas as to what that “New World Order” should be – very discouraging, isn’t it?


By the way, maybe I did not make my question clear: Celestine, since you said that George Bush, Sr. and Obama are on the same team, what are the specifics of the New World Order that they are both in favor of to justify that they are on the same team? I must be a little dense today, as I just do not understand. Please clarify this for me with specifics. Thank you very much!


Celestine, in answer to your question, if Romney blew off the Bildergergs would he still become president? My answer is yes. We are a government for the people, by the people and of the people. I am a determnined realist, but I am also an idealist. I do not believe that all of the power lies with the Bilderbergs. I am also praying for help from Our Lord, from His Blessed Mother, Mary, from the angels and from the saints, the Church Triumphant, to help this country. If all power lied with the Bilderbergs, there would not be much merit… Read more »
