...a good compilation.

On the "Franklin Prophecy", there has been very considerable debate as to whether or not this is a hoax. Over a number of years I have spent a considerable amount of time trying to locate source material for this without avail.

The "prophecy" is always attributed to a writing supposed to be found in the Diary of Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, a Constitutional Convention delegate (and military notable) from South Carolina. I've chased through many, many indexes and bibliographies searching for ANY sources to ANY writings of the said Pinckney, and have always come up empty handed.

An interesting tidbit from the web:

The only complete biography of Pinckney is Marvin R. Zahniser, Charles Cotesworth Pinckney: Founding Father (1967). Pinckney's papers in the Library of Congress have not been published, but letters to him from Washington and Hamilton can be found in John C. Fitzpatrick, The Writings of George Washington (39 vols., 1931-1944), and Harold C. Syrett and Jacob E. Cooke, Papers of Alexander Hamilton (15 vols., 1961-1969). The edited papers of John Adams, Rufus King, and other contemporaries should also be consulted. □
I do remember that my own research indicated a trip to Charleston SC might help to locate such a "diary", possibly in the [closed] private collection of the College of Charleston, SC. Since the papers in the LoC "have not been published" and the C of C's collection is private my guess is that access to these sources would not be available to any WN other than a "crypto" WN with sterling academic bonafides.
No way out but through the jews.

“The Jewish members of the conspiracy have used an organization called the Anti-Defamation League as an instrument to try to convince everyone that any mention of the Rothschilds or their allies is an attack on all Jews. In this way they have stifled almost all honest scholarship on
international bankers and made the subject taboo within universities.” — Gary Allen, in his book “None Dare Call It Conspiracy” (1972). pg. 38.

“The powers of financial capitalism had a far-reaching aim – nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements [BIS] in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations … Each central bank sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world.” — Carroll Quigley in his book “Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World In Our Time” (1966)

The Anglo-American Elite, Part 1: Professors Carroll Quigley and Revilo Oliver on the Evolution of the Anglo-American Establishment

October 4, 2014 — Leave a Comment

Dan Michaels

The aftermath of the Great War and its offspring, World War II, left only the capitalist Anglo-American Establishment in competition with the communist USSR for the grand prize — worldwide economic and financial hegemony.

Owing to its rapid expansion, extensive domain, longevity, and success, the Anglo-American Establishment does now indeed appear capable of establishing a “New World Order,” a worldwide hegemony based on its economic, military and financial superiority. It achieved this by first conforming to the hard-right, nationalistic business and social practices of the 19th century (imperialism, colonialism, greed, etc.) and then in the 20th century, after all the other European countries including the Communists had lost their empires, the Anglo-Americans filled the void by establishing their current left-of-center worldwide dominance.

When in the late 19th century the United States entered into this special relationship with the Crown, leadership in Britain was gradually being transferred from her native aristocracy to a new elite, the Milner Group, consisting of visionaries of a new world power based solely on economic and financial wealth rather than on traditional British military, industrial, and diplomatic skills. Lord Milner, although not himself Jewish, was an early Zionist on good terms with the Rothschilds. The partnership with America, a nation composed of immigrants from many countries, compelled this transition from the original exclusive English nationalistic and racial base to its current main object, namely, economic and financial gain on a broader international base.

In 1902 Cecil Rhodes, a founder of the Milner group, established the prestigious Rhodes scholarship program under the administration of Nathan Rothschild for promising postgraduate students from the British Colonies, the United States, and Germany willing to subscribe to the Establishment’s approach to world peace. However, no candidates were chosen from Germany in the periods 1914–1929 and 1940–1969 because of the world wars. When the awards to Germany were reinstated in 1970, opponents to the Hitler government were recognized, indicating certain left-wing political values had replaced the conservative ones of old. For example, U.S. President Bill Clinton was awarded his Rhodes scholarship in 1968 at about the same time as Robert Reich and Strobe Talbott received theirs.

The ascendancy of the Milner Group spelled the end of the exclusive British institution—the Empire, the inauguration of an anti-German policy on the Continent, much greater American participation, and a more indulgent view of the subject races. After World War II the term “Establishment” permanently retired the term “Empire.”

Professor Carroll Quigley (1910–1977), formerly of Georgetown University, has provided the best available general description of the personnel, objectives, and structure of the Anglo-American Establish**ment to about 1950. Professor Quigley generally approved of the Milner Group, which was a kind of religious brotherhood like the Jesuits, a church for the extension of British interests. Quigley:

In general, I agree with the goals and aims of the Milner Group. I feel that the British way of life and the British Commonwealth of Nations are among the greatest achievements of all history.
Cecil Rhodes, a fabulously wealthy South African with dreams of empire, founded the Establishment, essentially a secret society, in the mid 1880s. Organized along Jesuitical lines, Rhodes was advised by a “Junta of Three,” consisting of William T. Stead, the most famous journalist of his day; Reginald Baliol Brett, later known as Lord Esher, a confidant of Queen Victoria and adviser to King Edward VII and King George V; and Alfred Milner, a brilliant individual of mixed German-English background. Following the death of Rhodes in 1902 and the eclipse of Stead in 1899, Milner assumed leadership of the ever-growing society, which he held until 1925.

Lord Milner’s motivation and views coincided with those of Rhodes:

I am a British Nationalist. If I am also an Imperialist, it is because the destiny of the English race has been to strike fresh roots in distant parts…my patriotism knows no geographical, but only racial, limits…
Quigley did have certain reservations about the Group (e.g., its con*spi*ratorial methods, the members’ rather na´ve idealism, and the fact that such a small group of men should wield such power in government, control the publication of documents relating to their actions, and almost monopolize the writing and teaching of the history of their own period, including the management of the most important, opinion-forming newspaper of that era). Nevertheless, Quigley offered no explanation for the Group’s failures and the final dissolu*tion of the Empire.

Milner had recruited the best and brightest of the English public school system to staff the society whose goal at the time was world domination by the British Race, beginning with the annexation of Africa. Members of the Group were organized hierarchically—depending upon the individual’s importance— into “The Society of the Elect” and the “Association of Helpers.” The Milner Group, as it became known, dominated British foreign policy right through World War II. It bore responsibility for the instigation of the Boer War. It assumed an anti-German attitude and pressured the British Government to de*clare war on Germany in World War I. It sponsored the Balfour Plan promising the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine in exchange for which Jews would support Britain in the war and use their influence to persuade the United States to enter the war on the British side as well. [Ref. 5, pp.60-68] These policies ultimately destroyed the British Empire, sealed the alliance between Britain and the United States, and left the Near East in permanent turmoil.

It was left to the American scholar, Dr. Revilo Pendleton Oliver, former Professor of Classics at the University of Illinois, to advance a cogent, but highly controversial explanation for the Group’s subsequent failures. Oliver was himself, like the earlier Rhodes group, un*abashed*ly racialist. He was proud of his own White race and what it had achieved; he rejected all “sentimen*tal” notions based on Christianity to the effect that the dominant race should treat the subjugated peoples as equals and in any way merge with them. He was opposed to “levellers” of all sorts, especial*ly those Jews who would encourage Christians to identify with, help, and merge with the colonized peoples, while at the same time maintaining their own special status and blood laws. Moreover, and most importantly, Oliver believed that Jews had their own agenda and that it took precedence over that of any particular nation.

While Dr. Oliver had the highest regard for the Milner Group and the intelligence of the decent-minded men it recruited, he placed blame for its failure on the influential Jews in its membership. Oliver referred to the Jews in the Milner Group as the “canker in the rose,” and held them responsible for the destruction of the British Empire. Professor Oliver emphasized, as Quigley did not, the strong presence and harmful influence of powerful Jews in the Group. Thus, for example, Lord Rothschild, the first Jew in the House of Lords, was Rhode’s closest confidant; Alfred Beit, another financial backer and friend of Rhodes was also Jewish; Lord Rosebery was another. All three had been trustees of Rhode’s will. Sir Abe Bailey, who later backed Winston Churchill, and many other Jewish compatriots, were also supporters of Rhodes.

According to Dr. Oliver, the ascendancy of Jews to the British peerage began when Benjamin D’Israeli was Prime Minister (1868 and 1874–80). D’Israeli was himself a Jewish racialist who believed that it was only fair that the two aristocratic peoples of the world, namely, the British and the Jews, should jointly rule the Empire and most of the globe.

Dr. Oliver—in a backhanded compliment—attributes the ascendancy of the Jewish people into Anglo-Saxon power circles to certain psychological traits:

Our race has never been a match for the Jews in subtlety of intellect or in the chameleonic ability to simulate the manners of any nation, and the native Anglo-Saxon character has as its ideal a cultivated gentleman, perhaps somewhat bluff and hearty, who honestly says what he means. The Jewish use of language to conceal thought is so alien to our instincts as to be really unthinkable in most situa*tions. [Ref. 5]
Despite his own almost unrestrained flow of invective when discussing the “Jewish Question,” Dr. Oliver does not misjudge or underestimate his bete noire:

Passionate hatred of the Jews is almost certain to be futile, for violent emotions prevent rational thought. …The international race … by arduous, intelligent, and indefatigable work for more than twenty five centuries, has, through its own efforts, made itself the major world power today. … History provides no parallel for that stupendous accomplishment. It must be regarded with respect, even awe. [Ref. 4, p. 9]

In the competition between “perfidious Albion” and the “perfidious Jews,” Dr. Oliver believes the latter to have come out ahead.

Britain’s lead in the industrial revolution had sustained her power well into the nineteenth century, but other Continental powers now caught up to her and threaten*ed her primacy. To preserve the Empire, leading Britons thought it wise to broaden and strengthen the base of support by enticing America, their erstwhile rebellious but now flourishing colony, back to the fold. The Group accomplished this, according to Oliver, by Milner writing the Balfour Declaration for his friend Dr. Chaim Weiz*mann, whose close friend, Louis Dembitz Brandeis was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court (1916–39), followed by Felix Frankfurter who was also appointed to the Supreme Court (1939–62). Justice Frankfurter’s personality was such as to capture and dominate the Harvard Law School completely. With the lure of a homeland in Palestine, the sentiment of many Jews switched from being pro-German to anti-German.

It should also be noted that America had demonstrated concern and sym*pathy for the Jews in Russia even before World War I, as attested by immigration figures and official statements by U.S. presidents (e.g., President Theodore Roosevelt condemned Russian treatment of the Jews in his 1904 message to Congress).

Beginning with the Theodore Roosevelt Administration and continuing through FDR’s to this day, the Anglo-American Establishment has included ever more Jews in its domain. Indeed, reflecting Jewish influence, the United States has over the past century established a special relationship with worldwide Zionism to such an extent and with such enthusiasm that some critics sarcastically refer to the original Anglo-American Establishment as the Zionist Anglo-American Establishment.

Incidentally, Dr. Oliver sees strong similarities in Jewish behavior over the centuries. For example, he sees the biblical story of Joseph (Gen.47.1–27) as an object lesson on taking control of someone else’s country by making alliances with elites against the rest of the population. Professor Oliver describes the process:

The hero of this tale is a Jew named Joseph, who is said to have been brought to Egypt as a slave, but who cleverly wriggled is way upward in Egyptian society until he was in a position to prey upon the good nature and superstitions of the Egyptian king, whom he first manipulated to permit an influx of Jews, who somehow take possession of the best land in the nation; then he uses the king’s authority to corner the grain market and is thus able to take from the Egyptians all their money, all their cattle, and then all their land, so that he has all the Egyptians at his mercy, forces the famished wretches to sell themselves into slavery, and then shrewdly transports groups of the slaves from one end of the country to the other, mixing up the population so thoroughly that all his victims find themselves among strangers with whom they would scarcely dare to concert an effective protest — and the Jews, no doubt snickering in private, annexed property and ‘multiplied exceedingly.” [Ref. 4, p. 22]
Certainly, Americans today can identify with the Egyptians of old, concerned as they are with the scandalous immigration problem imposed by elites in opposition to the attitudes of most Americans and finding it ever more difficult to live in their own cities.

To return to the topic at hand, a basic principle of the Anglo-American Establishment today is to foster profitable economic, financial, and trade practices, regardless of the race, religion, politics, or ethics practiced in the countries in which the Establishment is operating. Although centered in predominantly White countries and dependent on the economic productivity and military capabilities of their predominantly White populations, the Establishment is dedicated to internationalism and is hostile to any indications of national or racial identity for Whites. Indeed, the US and UK governments assisted the transition from White to Black rule in former Rhodesia and South Africa. Lest it be thought this was an altruistic act, the mineral and other wealth required by the Establishment continue to be received through the cooperation of native Africans acting as surrogates for the previous White managers.

Today, concurrently with her special relationship with the British, America maintains a similar arrangement with the State of Israel. The United States, as heir to the British Empire, inherits considerable responsibility for the maltreatment of the Arabs and other peoples under earlier British and French imperialist rule as well as the ongoing hatred between Arabs and Jews as the result of the establishment of the State of Israel.

Proponents of the New World Order must also face the fact that many, perhaps most of the countries of the world may not want it. Even as the desired Anglo-American hegemony is nearing reality, it is being increasingly resisted by peoples and states who cherish their own heritage and history and who fear being swallowed up in a homogeneous mass of humanity without any particular distinction, having lost their own unique character traits, traditions, and sacred rites passed down through the millennia. In Europe these concerned skeptics of an American-dominated New World Order are referred to as the New Right. Although these countries harbor no animus against the United States, they simply want to preserve what was always theirs.

The Anglo-American Elite, Part 2: The Bilderbergers

October 5, 2014 — 5 Comments
Dan Michaels

Although the American people have never been informed by the public media that the Bilderberg Group is the successor organization to the Anglo-American Establishment, more than a few have surmised that it is because only the Group has the wherewithal (the experienced personnel, the agenda, and the resources) to manage such an undertaking.

Pursuant to the ambitious vision of the Milner group that the Establishment should develop a worldwide base with universal appeal, i.e., an enterprise without borders, they likely decided that the very name ‘Anglo-American’ implied both geographic and ethnic constraints. Consequently, that name was dropped and the distinguished members became known simply as the “Bilderbergers” or the Bilderberg Group, i.e., by the name of the hotel in which the organization happened to hold its first general meeting. However, no known or acknowledged official linkage has as yet been established between the old Anglo-American Establishment and today’s Bilderbergers, other than the fact that both groups of ambitious industrialists and bankers were and remain in the same business, namely to advance the cause of globalism, and increase world trade and wealth to the profit of its members.

The Bilderberg Group consists of three core organizations, each with its own area of responsibility: the Bilderbergers with their main focus of interest on NATO and Europe; the Trilateralists who work with representatives from the East Asian states; and the Council on Foreign Relations which is part of the State Department. Other important outside groups like the Carnegie Endowment for Peace also cooperate when called upon. Membership overlaps in each of the core organizations with individuals freely transferring from one to the other or as a member in two or three of the components simultaneously. Some members may also move in and out of US Government offices almost at will.

The first annual private conference of the Bilderberg Group was held in the Netherlands in May 1954. It was (and continues to be) attended by approximately 120–150 political leaders and experts from government, industry, finance, academia and the media. This group’s main stated aims are to promote Atlanticism and NATO, develop better understanding between the United States and Western Europe, and to foster cooperation on political, economic and defense issues. Part lobby, part think tank, part policy-forming body, the Bilderberg Group is a driving force and guiding light in globalization, European integration, and Anglo-American relations. Members are the global elite – the power brokers of the West.

At the 1991 Bilderberg meeting Rockefeller [Ref. 2, p. 61] himself stated his goal was to create a “supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers, which is surely preferable to the national auto determination practiced in past centuries.”

Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, one of the earliest members, helped to promote the idea, together with former Belgian Prime Minister Paul Van Zeeland and the head of Unilever at that time, Dutchman Paul Rijkens. The lowland countries of Belgium and the Netherlands geographically constitute the transition zone between continental Europe and the British Isles. Bernhard in turn contactedWalter Bedell Smith, then head of the CIA, to ask Eisenhower adviser Charles Douglas Jackson to review the Group’s plans. The annual guest list is drawn up by inviting at least two attendees from each nation, one of each to represent conservative and liberal points of view.

Besides organizing the conferences the Steering Committee maintains 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. In addition to the official post of Chairman, an Honorary Secretary General is also appointed. The following gentlemen have served as Chairman: Prince Berhard (1954–1975); Walter Scheel (1975–1977); Alec Douglas-Home (1977–1980); Baron Eric Roll (1986–1989); Peter Carrington (1990–1998); Etienne Davignon (1998–2001); and Henri de Castries (since 2001). No other formal hierarchy of Bilderberg officers appears to exist.

The Rockefeller and Rothschild [Ref. 3, pp. 1-3; Ref. 2, p. 24] enterprises collaborated in the founding of the Bilderberg Group as a way for the “movers and shakers” of the various countries to get together and discuss outstanding world problems with a minimum of governmental red tape and publicity. David Rockefeller, now a nonagenerian, has devoted much of his time to the development of the Bilderbergers. He and Evelyn Rothschild are present at most conferences. Representatives from postwar Germany are perhaps the third (after the US and UK) most important supporters of the Group. In the early days of the Group Dr. Hermann Josef Abs, formerly on the board of directors of I.G. Farben, Daimler-Benz, and Siemens as well as being chairman of the Deutschebank, was a major player. Other regular attendees: Henry Kissinger, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Vernon Jordan, Lord Peter Carrington, Henry F.Heinz II, Nelson Rockefeller, and others.

Among the prominent political figures who, like perennial and annual flowers, regularly or only occasionally attend Bilderberg confererences are the heads of foreign governments; US Secretaries of State, Vice Presidents, Senators, etc. No sitting US President may attend, but they may send a representative in their place. Once out of office former presidents may take a more active role, and do so. Thus, for example, ex-president Ford was associated with the Bilderbergers, ex-president Carter with the Trilateralists, Bush the Elder with the Trilateralists, and Clinton with the Bilderbergers. Other more controversial political figures like Neocons Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, and Paul Wolfowitz attend quite often. [Ref. 3, p. 205]

The Trilateral Commission, which is a second sister organization, is also a non-governmental, non-partisan discussion group. It was founded by David Rockefeller in July 1973 to foster closer cooperation between North America, Western Europe, and Japan. Zbigniew Brsezinski, National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981, and a professor at Columbia University helped organize the group. Its officers are Joseph S. Nye, Jr. (North American chairman); Yasuchika Hasegawa (Pacific Asian chairman); and Jean-Claude Trichet (European chairman).

The mission of the third sister organization, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), is to be “a support resource for its members, government officials, business executives, journalists, educators and students and other interested citizens in order to help them better understand the world and the foreign policy choices facing the United States and other countries”. The CFR promotes globalizaion, free trade, reducing financial regulations on transnational corporations, and economic consolidation into regional blocs such as NAFTA or the European Union, and develops policy recommendations that reflect these goals.

The CFR’s think tank, the David Rockefeller Studies Program, is composed of about fifty adjunct and full-time scholars, as well as ten in-residence recipients of year-long fellowships, who cover the major regions and significant issues shaping today’s international agenda. These scholars contribute to the foreign policy debate by making recommendations to the presidential administration, testifying before Congress, serving as a resource to the diplomatic community, interacting with the media, authoring books, reports, articles, and op-eds on foreign policy issues. Its views reach the general public through its journal Foreign Affairs.

Its officers include: Carla A. Hills (Co-Chairman), Robert E. Rubin (Co- Chairman), David M. Rubenstein (Vice Chairman), Richard N. Haass (President), Madeleine Albright, Tom Brokaw, Fareed Zakaria, and others.

Media moguls invited to attend conferences have a special responsibility to all three related organizations. Their special responsibility and pledge to the Bilderbergers is strange indeed. It is not to publish any news concerning the activities of any of the three sister organizations, nor even to mention the word “Bilderberg” in their publications. This prohibition pertains only to the American media people. The European media are quite free to publish whatever they chose about the Bilderbergers, and they do.

Among the publications of the American media that have scrupulously complied with the Bilderberg black-out requirement are The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, Time, National Review, and other Establishment news vehicles. The owners, editors, and reporters of these large companies are often invited to attend the yearly conferences and do so. [Ref. 3, pp. 5, 7, 18, 19]

Some of the policies that the Bilderberg Group has promoted over the years include: aid to the African peoples and support for Black rule in South Africa and Rhodesia; supporting global environmental projects; increasing US taxes to provide a safety net for the international financiers in the event that Third World and former communist countries default on loans made to them; subduing racial and cultural differences in a world without boundaries; developing the United Nations along the path to world government; encouraging like-thinking US candidates to high office; merging national currencies into as few as possible (e.g., the Euro); merging national armies into grand alliances (e.g., NATO). [Ref. 3, pp. 150-154; 127, 143, 149]. The Group would not object to the US Army doing jobs that the UN cannot yet manage like, for example, fighting Ebola in West Africa

Although Dr. Quigley was initially impressed by the overall elitist nature of the individual Bilderbergers to cope with their mission, he had certain doubts and concerns about the Group’s organizational modus operandi. In time all of Quigley’s concerns became unpleasant realities. Thus, the first of Dr. Quigley’s concerns, namely, that the organization’s insistent demand for privacy would give cause for outsiders to suspect some sort of conspiracy, was evident from the very first conference. It became known somewhat later that other important individuals also disapproved of Bilderberg policies and aims, including President Eisenhower, President Nixon, Lady Margaret Thatcher, and others.

In 1961 President Eisenhower, in a speech a few days before leaving office, warned the American people about the dangers of the new “military industrial complex” without ever mentioning the word “Bilderbergers:” [Wikipedia, Military-Industrial Speech, 1961]

Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United States corporations.

This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, and even spiritual — is felt in every city, every Statehouse, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
Although the president failed to mention the role played by bankers in his warning, Dr. Quigley made it quite clear:

Since it is quite impossible to understand the history of the twentieth century without some understanding of the role played by money in domestic and foreign affairs, as well as the role played by bankers in economic and political life, we must take a glance at each of these subjects. [Ref. 4, p. 45]
The Bilderberg Group is definitely not a debating society. It has its own specific “one world” agenda against which opposing points of view are not even heard. They find almost all nationalistic initiatives unacceptable. When, for example, President Nixon opposed the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) for fear that it would have led to the NAFTA agreements and the eventual amalgamation of the United States, Mexico, and Canada, the president’s troubles began, culminating in Watergate. When in 1989 Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher made it manifestly clear that she had absolutely no intention of surrendering any part of British sovereignty to the European Union, such as dropping the British pound for the Euro – much desired by the Bilderbergers – she was criticized as being a provincial. Soon thereafter her career began to decline and by 1990 she was out of office. [Ref. 3, pp. 106-108]

In an informal chat with American Free Press reporter Jim Tucker in 1995 Lady Thatcher shared her opinion about the Bilderbergers. Following are excerpts from that talk:

It is an honor to be denounced by Bilderberg. Anyone who would surrender the sovereignty of their country…They [the Bilderbergers] are a stuck-up set…They said ‘nationhood should be suppressed.’ But there will never be a New World Order…I reject the notion that we should effectively cease to govern ourselves.
Lady Thatcher warned against “passing on more powers to a Brussels bureaucracy” and a European court that “can overrule our country” and those who would “destroy nationhood and national sovereignty.” Lady Thatcher, who was removed from her office as Prime minister by her own Conservative Party in 1990, concluded her remarks by declaring:

The European superstate [EU] is an empire, and empires collapse!
The situation remains the same today — the choice between nationalism and one-worldism. Certain questions must still be answered with respect to the role and authority of the Bilderberg Group to involve itself in such high-level affairs of State: Does this private Group have the constitutional right to engage in the highest levels of Government? Does the Group have the right to control what the media reports? Is the Bilderberg Group violating the Logan Act prohibiting unauthorized citizens to negotiate with foreign governments? Does the US Government pay any of the expenses incurred in the Group’s activities? Which group members take responsibility for any violations of US law? Does America want a small unelected “elite” to govern some of the country’s most important affairs?

Because the affairs of the Bilderberg Group are shrouded in secrecy, there is an understandable tendency to produce conspiracy theories and to exaggerate their power. Greater transparency on the above questions would go a long way toward making Americans breathe more easily.

Who Really Controls the World?

By Prof. Dr. Mujahid Kamran
Global Research, January 20, 2016
New Dawn Magazine 26 April 2015

(Article originally published in April 2015)

Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organised, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it. – Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States (1856-1924)

So you see, my dear Coningsby, that the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes. – Benjamin Disraeli, British Prime Minister (1804-1881)

The advent of the industrial revolution, the invention of a banking system based on usury, and scientific and technological advancements during the past three centuries have had three major consequences. These have made the incredible concentration of wealth in a few hands possible, have led to the construction of increasingly deadly weapons culminating in weapons of mass destruction, and have made it possible to mould the minds of vast populations by application of scientific techniques through the media and control of the educational system.

The wealthiest families on planet earth call the shots in every major upheaval that they cause. Their sphere of activity extends over the entire globe, and even beyond, their ambition and greed for wealth and power knows no bounds, and for them, most of mankind is garbage – “human garbage.” It is also their target to depopulate the globe and maintain a much lower population compared to what we have now.

It was Baron Nathan Mayer de Rothschild (1840-1915) who once said:

“I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the British Empire on which the sun never sets. The man that controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.”
What was true of the British Empire is equally true of the US Empire, controlled remotely by the London based Elite through the Federal Reserve System. Judged by its consequences, the Federal Reserve System is the greatest con job in human history.

It is sad and painful that man’s most beautiful construction, and the source of most power and wealth on earth, viz. scientific knowledge – the most sublime, most powerful and most organised expression of man’s inherent gift of thought, wonder and awe – became a tool for subjugation of humanity, a very dangerous tool in the hands of a tiny group of men. These men “hire” the scientist and take away, as a matter of right, the power the scientist creates through his inventions. This power is then used for their own purposes, at immense human and material cost to mankind. The goal of this handful of men, the members of the wealthiest families on the planet, the Elite, is a New World Order, a One World Government, under their control.

Secrecy and anonymity is integral to the operations of the Elite as is absolute ruthlessness, deep deception and the most sordid spying and blackmail. The Elite pitches nations against each other, and aims at the destruction of religion and other traditional values, creates chaos, deliberately spreads poverty and misery, and then usurps power placing its stooges in place. These families “buy while the blood is still flowing in the streets” (Rothschild dictum). Wars, “revolutions” and assassinations are part of their tactics to destroy traditional civilisation and traditional religions (as in Soviet Russia), amass wealth and power, eliminate opponents, and proceed relentlessly towards their avowed goal, generation after generation. They operate through covert and overt societies and organisations.

Professor Carroll Quigley wrote:
The powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands to be able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements, arrived at in private meetings and conferences.… The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralisation of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury to all other economic groups.
Winston Churchill, who was eventually “bored by it all,” wrote around 1920:
From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, to those of Trotsky, Bela Kun, Rosa Luxembourg, and Emma Goldman, this world wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played a definitely recognisable role in the tragedy of French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the nineteenth century, and now at last, this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads, and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.

The High Cabal Exposed by JFK

It was in the dark days of World War II that Churchill referred to the existence of a “High Cabal” that had brought about unprecedented bloodshed in human history. Churchill is also said to have remarked about the Elite: “They have transported Lenin in a sealed truck like a plague bacillus from Switzerland into Russia…” (quoted by John Coleman in The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations, Global Publications 2006). Who are ‘they’?

Consider the 1961 statement of US President John F. Kennedy (JFK) before media personnel:

The word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society, and we are as a people, inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, secret oaths and secret proceedings. For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy, that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence. It depends on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published, its mistakes are buried, not headlined, and its dissenters are silenced, not praised, no expenditure is questioned, no secret revealed… I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people.”
Secret societies, secret oaths, secret proceedings, infiltration, subversion, intimidation – these are the words used by JFK!

On June 4, 1963, JFK ordered the printing of Treasury dollar bills instead of Federal Reserve notes (Executive Order 11110). He also ordered that once these had been printed, the Federal Reserve notes would be withdrawn, and the Treasury bills put into circulation. A few months later (November 22, 1963) he was killed in broad daylight in front of the whole world – his brains blown out. Upon assumption of power, his successor, President Lyndon Johnson, immediately reversed the order to switch to Treasury bills showing very clearly why JFK was murdered. Another order of JFK, to militarily disengage from the Far East by withdrawing US “advisors” from Vietnam, was also immediately reversed after his death. After the Cuban crisis JFK wanted peaceful non-confrontational coexistence with the Soviet Union and that meant no wars in the world. He knew the next war would be nuclear and there would be no winners.

The defence industry and the banks that make money from war belong to the Elite. The Elite subscribes to a dialectical Hegelian philosophy, as pointed out by Antony Sutton, under which they bring about ‘controlled conflict’. The two world wars were ‘controlled conflicts’! Their arrogance, their ceaseless energy, their focus, their utter disregard for human life, their ability to plan decades in advance, to act on that planning, and their continual success are staggering and faith-shaking.

Statements by men like Disraeli, Wilson, Churchill, JFK and others should not leave any doubt in the mind of the reader about who controls the world. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt wrote in November 1933 to Col. Edward House: “The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centres has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson.” It may be recalled that Andrew Jackson, US President from 1829-1837, was so enraged by the tactics of bankers (Rothschilds) that he said:

“You are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out and by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be a revolution before morning.”
Interlocking Structure of Elite Control

In his book Big Oil and Their Bankers in the Persian Gulf: Four Horsemen, Eight Families and Their Global Intelligence, Narcotics and Terror Network, Dean Henderson states:
“My queries to bank regulatory agencies regarding stock ownership in the top 25 US bank holding companies were given Freedom of Information Act status, before being denied on ‘national security’ grounds. This is ironic since many of the bank’s stockholders reside in Europe.” This is, on the face of it, quite astonishing but it goes to show the US government works not for the people but for the Elite. It also shows that secrecy is paramount in Elite affairs. No media outlet will raise this issue because the Elite owns the media. Secrecy is essential for Elite control – if the world finds out the truth about the wealth, thought, ideology and activities of the Elite there would be a worldwide revolt against it. Henderson further states:

The Four Horsemen of Banking (Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo) own the Four Horsemen of Oil (Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell, BP Amoco and Chevron Texaco); in tandem with other European and old money behemoths. But their monopoly over the global economy does not end at the edge of the oil patch. According to company 10K filings to the SEC, the Four Horsemen of Banking are among the top ten stockholders of virtually every Fortune 500 corporation.

It is well known that in 2009, of the top 100 largest economic entities of the world, 44 were corporations. The wealth of these families, which are among the top 10% shareholders in each of these, is far in excess of national economies. In fact, total global GDP is around 70 trillion dollars. The Rothschild family wealth alone is estimated to be in the trillions of dollars. So is the case with the Rockefellers who were helped and provided money all along by the Rothschilds. The US has an annual GDP in the range of 14-15 trillion dollars. This pales into insignificance before the wealth of these trillionaires. With the US government and most European countries in debt to the Elite, there should be absolutely no doubt as to who owns the world and who controls it. To quote Eustace Mullins from his book The World Order:

The Elites rule the US through their Foundations, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Federal Reserve System with no serious challenges to their power. Expensive ‘political campaigns’ are routinely conducted, with carefully screened candidates who are pledged to the program of the World Order. Should they deviate from the program, they would have an ‘accident’, be framed on a sex charge, or indicted in some financial irregularity.

The Elite members operate in absolute unison against public benefit, against a better life for mankind in which the individual is free to develop his or her innate creativity, a life free of war and bloodshed. James Forrestal, the first Secretary of Defence of the US, became aware of Elite intrigue and had, according to Jim Marrs, accumulated 3,000 pages of notes to be used for writing a book. He died in mysterious circumstances and was almost certainly murdered. His notes were taken away and a sanitised version made public after one year! Just before he died, almost fifteen months before the outbreak of the Korean War, he had revealed that American soldiers would die in Korea! Marrs quotes Forrestal: “These men are not incompetent or stupid. Consistency has never been a mark of stupidity. If they were merely stupid, they would occasionally make a mistake in our favour.” The Bilderberg Group, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission and the mother of all these, The Royal Institute of International Affairs, are bodies where decisions about the future of mankind are arrived at. Who set these up and control them? The “international bankers” of course.

In his book The Secret Team: The CIA and Its Allies in Control of the United States and the World, Col. Fletcher Prouty, who was the briefing officer to the President of the US from 1955-1963, writes about “an inner sanctum of a new religious order.” By the phrase Secret Team he means a group of “security-cleared individuals in and out of government who receive secret intelligence data gathered by the CIA and the National Security Agency (NSA) and who react to those data.” He states: “The power of the Team derives from its vast intra-governmental undercover infrastructure and its direct relationship with great private industries, mutual funds and investment houses, universities, and the news media, including foreign and domestic publishing houses.” He further adds: “All true members of the Team remain in the power centre whether in office with the incumbent administration or out of office with the hard-core set. They simply rotate to and from official jobs and the business world or the pleasant haven of academe.”

Training the Young for Elite Membership

It is very remarkable as to how ‘they’ are able to exercise control and how ‘they’ always find people to carry out the job, and how is it ‘they’ always make the ‘right’ decision at the right time? This can only be possible if there exists a hidden program of inducting and training cadres mentally, ideologically, philosophically, psychologically and ability-wise, over prolonged periods of time and planting them in the centres of power of countries like the US, UK, etc. This training would begin at a young age in general. There must also be a method of continual appraisal, by small groups of very highly skilled men, of developing situations with ‘their’ men who are planted throughout the major power centres of the world so that immediate ‘remedial’ action, action that always favours Elite interests, can be taken. How does that happen?

It is in finding answers to these questions that the role of secret societies and their control of universities, particularly in the US, assumes deeper importance. The work done by men like Antony Sutton, John Coleman, Eustace Mullins and others is ground breaking. Mankind owes a debt to such scholars who suffer for truth but do not give in. Whenever you trace the money source of important initiatives designed to bring about major wars, lay down policies for the future, enhance control of the Elite over mankind, etc., you will invariably find them linked to the so called banking families and their stooges operating out of Foundations.

In April 2008 I was among approximately 200 Vice Chancellors, Rectors and Presidents of universities from Asia, Africa, Europe and the US at a two day Higher Education Summit for Global Development, held at the US State Department in Washington DC. The Summit was addressed by five US Secretaries, including Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. The real emphasis throughout the Summit was only on one thing – that universities in developing countries operate in partnership with foundations so that global problems could be solved! These are private foundations and the only way to understand this emphasis is to realise the US government is owned by those who own these foundations. As an aside the inaugural address was delivered by the war criminal responsible for millions of deaths in Rwanda, trained in US military institutions, and awarded a doctorate – Dr. Paul Kagame! The very first presentation was made by the CEO of the Agha Khan Foundation!

In a fascinating study of the Yale secret society Skull and Bones, Antony Sutton uncovered numerous aspects of profound importance about this one society. In his book America’s Secret Establishment – An Introduction to the Order of Skull & Bones, Sutton points out there is a set of “Old Line American Families and New Wealth” that dominates The Order (of Skull & Bones) – the Whitney family, the Stimson family, the Bundy family, the Rockefeller family, the Harriman family, the Taft family, the Bush family, and so on. He also points out that there is a British connection:

The links between the Order and Britain go through Lazard Freres and the private merchant bankers. Notably the British establishment also founded a University – Oxford University, and especially All Souls College at Oxford. The British element is called ‘The Group’. The Group links to the Jewish equivalent through the Rothschilds in Britain (Lord Rothschild was an original member of Rhodes’ ‘inner circle’). The Order in the US links to the Guggenheim, Schiff and Warburg families… There is an Illuminati connection.

Every year 15 young men, and very recently women, have been inducted into The Order from Yale students since 1832. Who selects them? A study of the career trajectories of many of those ‘chosen’ shows how they rise to prominence in American life and how their peers ensure these men penetrate the very fabric of important US institutions. They are always there in key positions during war and peace, manipulating and watching ceaselessly.

The influence of the Elite families on the thought processes of nations is carried out through academic institutions and organisations, as well as the media. Sutton writes:

Among academic associations the American Historical Association, the American Economic Association, the American Chemical Society, and the American Psychological Association were all started by members of The Order or persons close to The Order. These are key associations for the conditioning of society. The phenomenon of The Order as the FIRST on the scene is found especially among Foundations, although it appears that The Order keeps a continuing presence among Foundation Trustees… The FIRST Chairman of an influential but almost unknown organisation established in 1910 was also a member of The Order. In 1920 Theodore Marburg founded the American Society for the Judicial Settlement of Disputes, but Marburg was only President. The FIRST Chairman was member William Howard Taft. The Society was the forerunner of the League to Enforce Peace, which developed into the League of Nations concept and ultimately the United Nations.
The United Nations is an instrument of the Elite designed to facilitate the setting up of One World Government under Elite control. The UN building stands on Rockefeller property.

Selecting Future Prime Ministers to Serve the New World Order

In his article, ‘Oxford University – The Illuminati Breeding Ground’, David Icke recounts an incident that demonstrates how these secret societies and groups, working for the Elite, select, train and plan to install their men in key positions. In 1940 a young man addressed a “study group” of the Labor Party in a room at University College Oxford. He stressed that he belonged to a secret group without a name which planned a “Marxist takeover” of Britain, Rhodesia and South Africa by infiltrating the British Parliament and Civil Services. Since the British do not like extremists they dismiss their critics as ‘right-wingers’ while themselves posing as ‘moderates’ (this seems like the anti-Semitism charge by ADL, etc. whenever Israel is criticised). The young man stated that he headed the political wing of that secret group and he expected to be made Prime Minister of Britain some day! The young man was Harold Wilson who became Prime Minister of Britain (1964-70, 1974-76)!

All young men studying at Ivy League universities, and at others, must bear in mind they are being continually scrutinised by some of their Professors with the intention of selecting from amongst them, those who will serve the Elite, and become part of a global network of interlocked covert and overt societies and organisations, working for the New World Order. Some of those already selected will be present among them, mingling with them and yet, in their heart, separated from them by a sense of belonging to a brotherhood with a mission that has been going on for a long time. These young men also know they will be rewarded by advancement in career and also that if they falter they could be killed!

Utter secrecy and absolute loyalty is essential to the continued success of this program. This is enforced through fear of murder or bankruptcy and through a cult which probably takes us back to the times of the pyramids and before. Philosophically ‘they’ believe in Hegelian dialectics through which they justify bringing about horrible wars – euphemistically called ‘controlled conflict’. Their political ideology is ‘collectivism’ whereby mankind has to be ‘managed’ by a group of men, ‘them’, organised for the purpose – a hidden ‘dominant minority’. ‘They’ believe that they know better than ordinary mortals. The Illuminati, the Freemasons, members of other known and unknown secret societies, all mesh together under the wealthiest cabal in human history to take a mesmerised, dormant and battered mankind from one abyss to the next. Former MI6 agent John Coleman refers to a “Committee of 300” that controls and guides this vast subterranean human machinery.

In his book Memoirs, published in 2002, David Rockefeller, Sr. stated that his family had been attacked by “ideological extremists” for “more than a century… Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterising my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty.

David Rockefeller’s 1991 Speech at a Bilderberg Group Meeting

Although David Rockefeller just died, it’s inevitable that his family legacy will live on, quite possibly through the implementation of a one world government. As a most elite and a globalist, David was always a strong advocate of a one world government and was proud to support the New World Order.

The transcript from a 1991 Bilderberg group meeting in Baden, Germany, was released, proving how deluded Rockefeller’s views truly were. Bill Clinton also attended this meeting, I’m sure along with many other members of the elite class. Rockefeller stated:
We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march toward a world government. . . . The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries. (source)
This quote is extremely revealing, as it proves that not only has he been striving to create a one world government since well before 1991, but mainstream media (MSM) news outlets were aware of it and chose not to disclose this information to the public. It’s disturbing that MSM turned a blind eye to this; however, it’s not really surprising given the fact that the elite people attending these types of meetings are the very people who fund and control these corporations.

MSM exercises extreme control over the masses, expertly keeping the general population ignorant and oblivious to the events going on all over the world. If you live in the U.S., you probably have no idea what’s going on with Syria or Russia, because the elite loves to keep you in the dark and feed you propaganda and misinformation (you can read more about that in our CE article here).

Despite his wrongdoings, Rockefeller was a proud member of the elite, and he voiced this pride on numerous occasions.

In 1994, Rockefeller was quoted at a U.N. dinner as saying, “We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis, and the nations will accept the New World Order.”

Could this crisis have been 9/11, an orchestrated and planned demolition by the elite? Or perhaps he’s referring to the current events in Syria? Either way, it’s no secret that the elite use false flag terrorism to manipulate the masses.

David Rockefeller wrote in his 2002 memoirs: “Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

Assad's view on how US politics actually works

Assad stated,

The American President has no policies. There are policies drawn by the American institutions which control the American regime which are the intelligence agencies, the Pentagon, the big arms and oil companies, and financial institutions, in addition to some other lobbies which influence American decision-making. The American President merely implements these policies, and the evidence is that when Trump tried to move on a different track, during and after his election campaign, he couldn’t. He came under a ferocious attack. As we have seen in the past few week, he changed his rhetoric completely and subjected himself to the terms of the deep American state, or the deep American regime. That’s why it is unrealistic and a complete waste of time to make an assessment of the American President’s foreign policy, for he might say something; but he ultimately does what these institutions dictate to him. This is not new. This has been ongoing American policy for decades.

Assad also addressed the Western media’s portrayal of him as a “devil” who kills and oppresses his own people. He stated,

Yes, from a Western perspective, you are now sitting with the devil. This is how they market it in the West. But this is always the case when a state, a government, or an individual do not subjugate themselves to their interests, and do not work for their interests against the interests of their people. These have been the Western colonial demands throughout history. They say that this evil person is killing the good people. Okay, if he is killing the good people, who have been supporting him for the past six years? Neither Russia, nor Iran, nor any friendly state can support an individual at the expense of the people. This is impossible. If he is killing the people, how come the people support him? This is the contradictory Western narrative; and that’s why we shouldn’t waste our time on Western narratives because they have been full of lies throughout history, and not something new.


TS: What is the objective behind Syria’s desire to acquire the latest generation of anti-missile systems from Russia?

BA: We are already in a state of war with Israel; and Israel has been committing aggressions on the Arab states surrounding it since its creation in 1948. So, it’s natural that we should have such systems. However, the terrorists, acting on Israeli, American, Turkish, Qatari, and Saudi instructions have destroyed some of these systems. And it is natural for us to negotiate with the Russians now with a view to strengthening these systems, whether to face any Israeli threats from the air or the threats of American missiles. That has become a real possibility after the recent American aggression on al-Shairat airbase in Syria.
