Peter Thiel is a billionaire member of the Bilderberg Steering Committee whom Sam Biddle described for The Intercept in 2017 as "one of the American political mainstream’s most notorious figures".[1] His first Bilderberg was in 2008 and he has attended all subsequent meetings (since 2012, together with co-founder of Palantir, Alex Karp). Thiel's role in The Paypal Mafia is seldom reported, although he is named as the de facto leader, above old friend Elon Musk.


He has worked for Sullivan & Cromwell. In 1998 Thiel co-founded PayPal together with Max Levchin. He sold it in 2004. He founded Palantir with Alex Karp and Joe Lonsdale in 2004, a company which at least by 2008 was collaborating with GCHQ.[1]

Tom Scocca wrote in 2016 about the shuttering of Gawker that "a lie with a billion dollars behind it is stronger than the truth. Peter Thiel has shut down"[2]


Born in Germany, he was granted New Zealand citizenship in 2011, after a donation of NZ$1 million ($730,000) to the Christchurch earthquake relief effort, although only having visited 4 times.[3]


“I believe that it is always important to exchange views with people, no matter what their perspectives are. I think we have a lot of problems in our society and we need to be finding ways to talk to people. We need to find ways to talk to people where not everything is completely transparent. Libertarianism is not synonymous with radical transparency. That’s often an argument that Stasi would make in East Germany, when everything had to be monitored by society. And I think you have the best conversations in smaller groups where not everything is being monitored. That’s how you can have very honest conversations and you can think better about the future.”
Peter Thiel (2016)  [4]

Thiel describes himself as a "libertarian", has opposed women's suffrage[5] and has been a huge supporter of Ron Paul.[6] He has invested in online media such as Reddit.

Controlling the narrative

Thiel was a very early investor in Facebook and was "one of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's earliest advisors for nearly 20 years"[7].

In 2021 Peter Thiel invested in Rumble.[8]


Thiel has been funding private research into a range of topics, from helping to extend the human lifespan[9] to the harnessing of fusion power.[10]

“I'm looking into parabiosis stuff, which I think is really interesting. This is where they did the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect,” he said. “And so that’s... that is one that... again, it’s one of these very odd things where people had done these studies in the 1950s and then it got dropped altogether. I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely under-explored.”
Peter Thiel [11]
Allegedly, Thiel “spends $40,000 per quarter to get an infusion of blood from an 18-year-old"

Cryptocurrencies as "WMDs"

During the rise of computer mining farms with thousands of computers combined together, Thiel argued cryptocurrencies to be a Chinese WMD aimed at destabilizing the US, by making the cost of living too high for the average American, getting quoted in a large number of US corporate media.[12]

Jeffrey Epstein

Thiel had meetings with Jeffrey Epstein in 2014 on at least three occasions, either in one-on-one meetings or with others over lunch or dinner. Two other times, Mr. Thiel was listed among more than a dozen other well-known people Epstein should try to see while at his New York mansion.[13]

Personal life

Jeff Thomas, a reported lover, committed suicide in March 2023.[14]


A Quote by Peter Thiel

Transhumanism“I'm looking into parabiosis stuff, which I think is really interesting. This is where they did the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect,” he said. “And so that’s . . . that is one that . . . again, it’s one of these very odd things where people had done these studies in the 1950s and then it got dropped altogether. I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely under-explored.”


Related Quotation

Elon Musk“Despite having perhaps the greatest entrepreneurial streak of all the PayPal Mafia, Musk was purged from PayPal like some kind of toxin. Soon after the merger, Thiel resigned.

Musk became CEO of the combined company and decided it was time for a technological overhaul. Specifically, he wanted to toss out Unix and put everything on a Microsoft (MSFT) platform.

That may sound innocent enough to laypeople but not to Unix zealots like Levchin and his team. A holy war ensued. Musk lost. The board fired him and brought back Thiel while Musk was on a flight to Australia for his first vacation in years. “That’s the problem with vacations,” Musk deadpans.

Musk still contends he didn’t deserve his fate, that his biggest flaw was being cut from different cloth. “Peter, Max, and I are not directly aligned philosophically,” he says. “Peter’s philosophy is pretty odd. It’s not normal. He’s a contrarian from an investing standpoint and thinks a lot about the singularity. I’m much less excited about that. I’m pro-human.””
Elon Musk
