Monty has some interesting comments about the Irish Potato Famine. Both Monty and Veronica share details the attacks she experienced, recently. -LW


As you approach the end of the rule of the cabal, their desire for war becomes more urgent. Attacks on individuals become more frequent and severe. Know that the light is fast overtaking the dark as more people awaken and refuse to accept the dictates of their corrupt overlords. You have been given wonderful evidence of new ley lines – more active and powerful – that are now taking over your planet. The Earth is preparing for the New Age. The work on the ley lines is your key to freedom, peace, and joy. You are almost there. You know in your souls that this work is essential. You have the ability to bring about the changes that are required to eliminate the power of the dark forces. Good people are coming together, sharing knowledge and expertise, thus preparing the way for the light. Your ley line work is appreciated on both sides of life. It will take its place in the history of these times. Your world is changing for the better, right in front of your eyes.

There is a virus attacking the minds of those which the Dark Ones see as dangerous. These people are not aware of having the virus. The clue to its presence is that they now only say what the cabal wants them to say. It prevents them from carrying out their real work and it changes their minds on all that was light. Like the Ebola virus that was produced to attack the body, the A Virus attacks the mind. The victim is totally unaware of it.

New research that was shared with you, my dear, shows that Ireland has the world’s densest concentration of sacred sites. The cabal has always been in fear of Ireland waking up. Each time Ireland began to awaken, it was prevented. The Jesuits organised and oversaw the Irish Holocaust which you were told was a famine. No . . . for Ireland was producing shiploads of food which the Irish themselves were not allowed to eat. That food was removed at gunpoint as the people died of starvation. The plan was to kill as many Irish as possible and to move the Irish people to places like the USA, so that Irish DNA would be mixed with other DNA, and would no longer be a threat. There is an Irish song, “Forgotten is the race that no one knows”. Ask yourselves why the cabal puts so much effort into destroying Ireland and her people.

Ireland endures a very high percentage of flouride in its water to dull the minds of its people. The EU has done its best to destroy the sacred places by building roads across them. The banks have fraudulently forced Ireland to its knees. Now, smart meters are being forced on them, so that radiation can be used to destroy the race that the cabal fears most. A race whose writings date back 6 to 8 centuries AD, in their ancient language of OGAM, as was found in Virginia USA. This was BEFORE you were taught that America was discovered! What does that tell you about the history you were taught.

When the Irish people awaken and realise who they are, then the cabal will cease to exist. Our first Centre must be in Ireland, for Ireland is the KEY, and it will reveal everything. You need to move forward into the light with the TRUE HISTORY of your past. It will light the way to the future. Much effort is being put into bringing about the changes on both sides of life.

You need to become aware of the black magic rituals that are carried out every day. You have become so accustomed to seeing them that you do not even think about them. So you never ask WHY. There is black and there is white; everything can be used either for the light or for the dark. All secret societies use dark magic: the Vatican uses it every day. There are many books on this subject. The energy of sacred places can also be used through black magic for dark purposes. Veronica experienced this recently when dark magic was used to thin her blood in order to induce a massive stroke; one from which she would not survive. We in spirit have ensured that this did not happen and we made sure that assistance was available.

I tell you this, only to ensure that should this be done to you, then you will know what is happening. My nose was streaming constantly, uncontrollably, and my eyes streamed also. Yet I did not have a cold. I now know that this was my body trying to protect me from what was being done to it. It was warning me of the attack. My energy was stolen.

I have now recovered from that attack.

As Veronica and R sat at the dining room table (on the 19 September), the chair upon which Veronica sat, became severely cold. She felt her anus being forced open as a slab of ice was inserted and proceeded up inside her body. This method had been used to kill her in ancient Egypt when her energy and identity was stolen. The pain in her head was unbearable and her mouth was filling uncontrollably with fluid. R moved Veronica from the chair, and then experienced the cold herself, as she tried to sit on it. R took control and sent the dark energies back to where they had come from. Again, Veronica’s energy was drained.

This was repeated eight days later, but Veronica knew what to do, and was supported by M, who talked her through it. I asked Veronica to share this with you, so that should any of you ever experience such attacks, you can take control and send the dark energies back. As you approach the Transition, things are speeding up, and the energy becomes more intense. But, unfortunately, the attacks will become more frequent too.

You are creating a bright new future for your planet, which is responding by creating brand new ley lines to ensure that sufficient energy will be enjoyed by all. Your work is almost complete. You are in the final stages.

The cabal is losing its grip and is struggling to survive. Discuss how you will handle this situation when it arises. Be prepared. Remember, violence begets violence, so there will be no need for it. Plans need to be considered. Cover all options and all possibilities. Do not be found wanting when you achieve your goal. The truth can no longer be kept hidden. It is in your interests to acquire as much true information as possible. Fear will be used to keep you under control but the truth will set you free. The 99% are not prepared to support the pyramid of control one moment longer. All the help you will need will be available. Everything has been planned. It awaits your call.

I know, my dear, how sad you are that the planned visit to Ireland had to be put on hold. You know that it will happen in the not too distant future. Certain people need to be put in place first. Those who understand, are with you 100%. Those still locked into a 3D world must be pitied. They fear leaving what they see as a secure 3D existence and they will oppose all change or progress of any sort. Send them love and light, for they surely need it. Please send love and light to all whose input is required to bring about the Transition: they need your support.

Consciously remove all ties which the cabal has on you, whether through religion or the State. Enjoy the freedom this will bring to your lives.

My dear, it has not been easy for you. In your heart, you know that you will succeed. We are almost there.

I remain, always, your adoring, Monty.

Alien Agenda VI: The Worm Has Turned (Soft Disclosure)

This is a great article about Disclosure, the alien agenda, 9/11, and Sandy Hook. -LW

The Coming Exposure, Containment and Deconstruction of the Illuminati

by Preston James

 

Note: This article is written for retired military and Intel with advanced knowledge of Secret Space War matters. Its purpose is to provide information about a certain group of notably evil Alien ET visitors who formed a long-term association with Super-elite criminally-insane Psychopaths who hijacked America in 1913. These super-elite Deviants were given incredible power and authority in exchange for enacting the evil Agenda of this Alien ET group best described as Cosmic Parasites. This group of super-elite Deviants is best referred to as the Ruling Crime Cabal (RCC) AKA the “Illuminati”.

If you are not aware of the background information and evidence that is available about this ongoing Secret Space War, you are probably wasting your time reading this and it won’t fit into your mind.

The Ruling Crime Cabal (RCC) has done their best to keep you from knowing about Secret Space War matters. There has been a long term energetic effort to keep this information from “We the People” as well as anyone including the High Military Command who does not have what they define as an “absolute need to know”.

Recently during the last several years Majestic-12 (AKA MAJIC), the Secret Group that has maintained authority over all Alien ET matters since it was created by President Truman in 1947, has apparently voted to allow public disclosure.

The Ruling Crime Cabal (RCC) is comprised of a Working Alliance between the Bush Crime Cabal (BCC) and the International Zionist Crime Syndicate (IZCS). This Ruling Crime Cabal/Coalition is best described as the Illuminati because that is what they call themselves and prefer to be called by Insiders.

This RCC gained power in three major Coup d’ Etats, the first in 1913 with the illegal, Unconstitutional passage of the Federal Reserve Act, the second with the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and the third with the deployment of a Gladio-style, False-Flag Inside-job Nuclear Attack on America on 9/11/01. It was during this time that Israel used nuclear blackmail to coerce the US Administration and top USG officials to allow the creation of Homeland Security (DHS).

The creation of Israeli-controlled Homeland security (DHS) provided an illegal, Unconstitutional consolidation of all American Alphabets, Law Enforcement and most Intel into one large, easy to control Israeli occupying Police State Army inside America.

This article will claim that the “Worm has Turned” at a very high level and the RCC is now being contained, dis-empowered and deconstructed piece by piece due to an interesting convergence of various forces and entities including the US High Military Command. Because this article contains information leaked by insiders and as well as numerous speculations, use your own judgment to evaluate what is presented and come to your own conclusions.

Be aware that many good individuals have been seriously harassed, stalked, threatened and even murdered to bring you this kind of information because the Ruling Criminal Cabal (RCC) does not want you to have any of this information about Secret Space Wars or Alien Agenda matters. The reason? This will be explained in the article and is best summarized that full public disclosure will likely result in a major immediate loss of power for the RCC at every level and will create a complete disruption of the Alien Agenda they are working so hard to fulfill which is about as anti-American and anti-human as possible.

The True History of the Templar Knights

Update: April 14th, 2014 – Richard says…

I wanted to give you an update on the delivery of the initial supplies of “The True Stories of the Templar Knights” disc sets. I expect both the DVD and Blu-ray sets to be delivered in the next week or so, with delivery to most who have placed their order by the end of April or the first week of May.

So, if you have yet to place your order, you have time to do so and be part of the initial delivery, as there are still some of each format available in the initial shipment.

__________________________________________________________

It was a great honour to preview the wonderful chronicles of the Templar Knights recently and I wanted to share with everyone now that they have been made available to the public for pre-order.

As you can imagine, the Knights Templar have been much maligned and the subject of a tremendous amount of speculation—both positive and negative.

I think by now many of us can accept that members of the many secret societies have been painted with the same brush, when in reality, only the upper echelons know the secrets while the lower ones have no idea what goes on at the top. Early compartmentalization.

The Knights Templar were no exception, and this incredible story explains why. In fact, they wrote nothing down as their work was so secret and their lives in danger at the hands of the Roman Catholic Church around the time of the Inquisition.

These mystics have held a fascination for me for a long time and I was enthralled by the secrets revealed from so long ago; who the Templars really were, their mission, how they operated, and how they were forced underground and their impact on our lives today.

Their stories are channeled by Carolyn Evers, who is not only clairvoyant, but clairaudient and clairsentient and brings to life this series in full colour and with such detail that it’s almost like being there.

Dr. Richard Presser also brings forth detailed information from the non-physical and between the two, we have a crystal view of the pages of history previously denied us.

The creator of the DVDs who wove the information together with full-colour images presents a reasonably historically accurate pictorial of what was in many cases a ‘page’ from one of our previous lives or the Akashic Records.

You may find this production tugging at your deepest memory as your soul is gradually reawakening.

If you love history, or have felt like you may have been a Templar Knight or had some dealings with them all those ages ago, I urge you to consider this beautifully rendered production.

There are many jaw-dropping revelations within these pages from history that no one could have guessed and there are no words to say how powerful this material is, or how important to our current journey toward enlightenment.

Much of  this information you won’t find in any history books. It was suppressed to keep us from knowing who we are.

The DVDs are suitable for all ages, have images and text and are narrated by the channeler. As you may know, the energies of the non-physical come through in that voice.

I’ll stop there and let you explore this historical record for yourself if you so desire. There is detailed information about what the DVDs entail, some testimonials and a sample from the DVDs themselves. There are several hours of information presented—not a small task to create—and there is a 120-pg. eBook included. DVDs also available in Blue-ray.

Click here to learn more about “The True Stories of the Knights Templar”.

As a teaser, you may wish to listen to the two most recent BBS radio shows from The Messenger that Carolyn and Richard hosted on March 29th and April 5th when Templar Knights shared more wisdom and history with listeners as well as their view on our current reality.

JFK Calls for the Release of Bradley Manning from Beyond the Grave [video]

Thanks, Richard.

John F. Kennedy was independently wealthy and for that reason was unable to be bought by the shadow government.

He worked to bring life to his ideals and to protect the nation of the United States of America. He butted heads with the inherited administration who tried to continue in their corrupt and secretive ways.

Ultimately, he gave his life to uphold the Constitution and to build the country held in the hearts of Americans when they envisioned The American Dream and Land of the Free.

Within days of advising that he was going to share certain taboo truths with the public, JFK was gunned down in cold blood by the ruthless, soul-less beings that have controlled the planet up until now.

How many times have those who have done the right thing—the honourable thing—been violated, incarcerated, or their Light snuffed out? We will never know the full scope of that. It’s beyond our comprehension.

Soon we will embrace the world Kennedy dreamed of, fought for, and died for. It shall be ours.

But for now, we have unfinished business. We have yet to take to task those who seek to disembowel America with their lawless governance and torture of innocent citizens—our heroes. We know who the traitors are. It’s all too apparent who is committing treason here.

Bradley Manning said he would do it again. How many of us would do it even once?

Is America worth fighting for, or did we give up?

This is our wake-up call. Something is dreadfully wrong and we must fix it.

Time and time again ONE person has sacrificed all for the many. Now it is time that many sacrifice just a little for the ONE; one more hero. I salute you, PFC Bradley Manning.

JFK Demands Release of Manning

A Voice from the Grave…

From Gordon Duff, Veterans Today

Despite the smears, no real American doubts that John F. Kennedy was our greatest president.  Today he speaks from the grave, in no uncertain terms, demanding the release of Bradley Manning.

We gladly add the name, “Bradley Manning” to the two dozen Nobel Prize nominees at Veterans Today.  (We nominate each other.)

Manning, not Snowden nor Assange nor Murdoch nor Netanyahoo, [I’m going to assume that spelling is intentional] deserves our thanks and our efforts to gain his freedom.

Look for the day that West Point, the viper-school of brown nosers and whiners is renamed:

Sheldan Nidle’s Update for April 9th

6 Muluk, 17 Mac, 9 Eb

Dratzo! We come again with more to tell you. Your reality is extremely close to its major shift in consciousness. The secret sacred societies of your world have entered into new alliances which are to serve them well once your new style of governance comes into being. We have assurances from several governmental organizations that once Heaven gives the green light the new reality can begin without further delay. We continue to monitor the dark cabal as it is clear that this group remains determined to pursue its willful and destructive course of starting a widespread military conflict. This will not be permitted. We also continue to add names to the detention lists and watch closely those who are the guiding hand behind the ongoing nonsense of keeping your globe burdened with contrived, groundless confrontations. This global modus operandi will shortly become a thing of the past and your ascension path will cease to be interfered with or sidetracked, as it has been in recent years. Your new epoch is inevitable and our formal arrival will shortly be announced. To this end we have drawn up a rapid-action schedule for our arrival so as to be ready at a moment’s notice.

The new epoch will be characterized by more than just the removal of the dark’s life-crushing agendas, for you are to be presented with a cornucopia of new information and truth. Those who have worked hard to establish the global segue into your new epoch have already liberated you from the reign of the US Federal Reserve. This illegal ‘bank’ is now bankrupt, and is seen to be operating only because its new caretakers do not yet wish to impose the reality of the situation upon the general public. They intend to maintain this illusion of ‘stability’ only up until the formal changes are allowed to happen. And so we monitor this ruse, knowing that an entirely new financial and monetary system is in place and awaiting the magic moment when Heaven gives us the official go-ahead. Until then we remain in our holding pattern. All we can say at the moment is that we are in a holding pattern until Heaven formally decrees that this age of spiritual darkness is over.

Nevertheless, the new spiritual age is upon us and this means that the dark, in reality, can no longer ‘rain on our parade’! Those in the last dark cabal do indeed know that basically their time is up. This extension is giving them a respite between the outgoing and the incoming ages. Meanwhile, there is no letup in the progress of moving you toward full consciousness: your angelic body guardians and other spiritual Beings are establishing energy fields and patterns which are returning you to your natural state of Being as ordained by the Creator’s divine plan. This plan also calls for the surface realm to be rehabilitated, and this is to dovetail with your own final DNA rehabilitation to be carried out in Agartha; you and Gaia both move upwards together. Also, all animal and plant life will be safeguarded by their respective Devic kingdoms which daily nurture them. These kingdoms will move their charges to special holographic environments to prevent them from having to endure the upheaval that is an inevitable concomitant of the surface realm’s reconfiguration and transition to its 5D state. This dimensional reunion ends the current dysfunctional split between the surface world and Inner Earth.

What will emerge is a new, physically unified Gaia, not unlike the one of 13 millennia ago. She will then be capable of restoring not only her own reunified Spirit but also that of her entire multidimensional solar system. Her rehabilitation will enable her solar system to also return to the state of unity that existed prior to being rent asunder by the perfidy of the dark some 13 millennia ago. The state of dimensional separation that followed is now to be healed by the formal disclosure of your space family, who intend to place this realm firmly onto the final leg of the journey to full consciousness. These developments are planned to take place as the dark’s long hegemony at last comes to a solemn conclusion. The Agarthans have long anticipated this prophesied time and we too come now to explain to you in detail the meaning of all this, once the Heaven-decreed time arrives. What then follows will demonstrate dramatically what this wonderful turn of events signifies for humanity. It will be a time when much will be laid before you, including the revelation of what lies in store for you!

Blessings to you! We are your Ascended Masters! We come with a message full of joy and hope! Everywhere upon the surface realm there are celebrations between the Devic and Angelic Presences who are in charge of transitioning Gaia’s elemental and animal kingdoms. New species are planning to take up residence shortly in the multifaceted, fully conscious milieu of Gaia’s surface, once it is restored to its pristine state. Naturally, the same holds true for the diverse plant kingdoms which are to mirror the brilliant ecologies of Inner Earth. Gaia’s newly resuscitated environments will begin a series of shifts to prepare for the Lighter, clearer, more crystalline diversity of life that befits this most unique and precious living orb. She is to return to a way of being that she possessed before her surface was downgraded to its present savage 3D state. The affect of her transformation is to flow out through the solar system, triggering similar ecological rehabilitation there: returning flora and fauna to Mars and Venus as well as stimulating a complete reconstitution of the large water-planet, Pax.

image038Our sacred duties include providing you with spiritual teachings about your most unusual living home world and how to become her primary land-guardians. The cetaceans are to extend their spiritual influences as Gaia’s primary aquatic guardians, and together, you are to become a team whose purpose is to ensure that each of Gaia’s living environments attains its fullest potential. Gaia is to become reunited within herself and serve as a template for life as it exists throughout this soon-to-be resurrected solar system. Your new star-nation will take on the environments that were planned initially for the various daughter worlds that comprise her. We come to teach you who you are to become, and to instill within you a great love and respect for the spiritual essences that reside deep within you and which are to be manifest everywhere in this new star-nation.

Our mission then requires us to become formal guides for your future activities. This stunningly beautiful collection of worlds is to be your future home. We are receiving instructions from Heaven regarding how to evolve the divine plan for the Sun and her transformed daughters. This inspirational mission will be a blessing for all! The instruction and training you receive will prepare you for what is expected of all fully conscious Beings of Light. You are to rejoin the ranks of a magnificent array of Spiritual Hierarchies and Life Streams which, in the name of Heaven, are to change this sector of physicality. This prepares the stage for the events which are to secure a permanent galactic peace, and provides the backdrop where entire galaxies can join together in the Creator’s holy Light. These new unions will form the foundation for spreading Light throughout physicality!

Today we focused on what is planned for your solar system and all of physicality. The ongoing changes are a prelude to a great epoch of Light, especially for the whole of Mother Earth’s long-suffering surface humanity. Know, dear Ones, that the countless Supply and never-ending Prosperity of Heaven are indeed Yours! So Be It! Selamat Gajun! Selamat Ja! (Sirian for Be One! and Be in Joy!)

Who Runs The World? Solid Proof That a Core Group of Wealthy Elites Is Pulling the Strings

New readers—this one’s for you.

Obviously the article below isn’t aimed at those who are already fully awake, but it’s a darn good tool for helping to empower those who are still sitting on the fence and wondering if we bloggers are conspiracy theorists with tin foil hats, or if this really could explain some of what you see transpiring in a fabricated world of illusion; a world that’s going downhill—FAST.

Liken it to the scene in ‘The Wizard of Oz’ where Toto reveals the truth to Dorothy and her team. “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain”, a flustered wizard commanded when they saw that the “great and powerful Oz” was nothing more than a mortal such as they who had been manipulating them with his illusions with smoke and mirrors.

That’s what these control freaks have been saying to us for eons—and for a long time we listened. Now, however, the beast (We, the People) has awakened and reared its ugly head. Now WE are the powerful ones and the cabal is running with tail between the legs in fear of the 99 per cent. Unfortunately, they can’t run fast enough…and they’re “meltiiiiiiiiing…….” like the Wicked Witch of the West into a puddle of foul, putrid slime we don’t want to step in.

The NEW Earth—the one WE create with our thoughts and intentions— will be magnificent beyond belief, and far better than anything we dared hope for. In truth, very little of the world we see before us is real, but the illusion is dissolving and a new reality is drifting into form. Dare to dream—and dream BIG!

If you’re not convinced enough to DO anything about the deplorable state of affairs on this planet just now, don’t worry about it. We—the ones with the tin foil hats—we’ve got this.

There’s nothing to be ashamed of. The evil ones have done similar to other races in other galaxies and other universes, but their glory days are done.

Does a shadowy group of obscenely wealthy elitists control the world?  Do men and women with enormous amounts of money really run the world from behind the scenes?  The answer might surprise you.  Most of us tend to think of money as a convenient way to conduct transactions, but the truth is that it also represents power and control.  And today we live in a neo-feudalist system in which the super-rich pull all the strings.  When I am talking about the ultra-wealthy, I am not just talking about people that have a few million dollars.

As you will see later in this article, the ultra-wealthy have enough money sitting in offshore banks to buy all of the goods and services produced in the United States during the course of an entire year and still be able to pay off the entire U.S. national debt.  That is an amount of money so large that it is almost incomprehensible.

Under this neo-feudalist system, all the rest of us are debt slaves, including our own governments.  Just look around – everyone is drowning in debt, and all of that debt is making the ultra-wealthy even wealthier.  But the ultra-wealthy don’t just sit on all of that wealth.  They use some of it to dominate the affairs of the nations.  The ultra-wealthy own virtually every major bank and every major corporation on the planet.  They use a vast network of secret societies, think tanks and charitable organizations to advance their agendas and to keep their members in line.  They control how we view the world through their ownership of the media and their dominance over our education system.

They fund the campaigns of most of our politicians and they exert a tremendous amount of influence over international organizations such as the United Nations, the IMF, the World Bank and the WTO.  When you step back and take a look at the big picture, there is little doubt about who runs the world.  It is just that most people don’t want to admit the truth.

The ultra-wealthy don’t run down and put their money in the local bank like you and I do.  Instead, they tend to stash their assets in places where they won’t be taxed such as the Cayman Islands.

According to a report that was released last summer, the global elite have up to 32 TRILLION dollars stashed in offshore banks around the globe.

U.S. GDP for 2011 was about 15 trillion dollars, and the U.S. national debt is sitting at about 16 trillion dollars, so you could add them both together and you still wouldn’t hit 32 trillion dollars.

And of course that does not even count the money that is stashed in other locations that the study did not account for, and it does not count all of the wealth that the global elite have in hard assets such as real estate, precious metals, art, yachts, etc.

The global elite have really hoarded an incredible amount of wealth in these troubled times.  The following is from an article on the Huffington Post website

Rich individuals and their families have as much as $32 trillion of hidden financial assets in offshore tax havens, representing up to $280 billion in lost income tax revenues, according to research published on Sunday.

The study estimating the extent of global private financial wealth held in offshore accounts – excluding non-financial assets such as real estate, gold, yachts and racehorses – puts the sum at between $21 and $32 trillion.

The research was carried out for pressure group Tax Justice Network, which campaigns against tax havens, by James Henry, former chief economist at consultants McKinsey & Co.

He used data from the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, United Nations and central banks.

But as I mentioned previously, the global elite just don’t have a lot of money.  They also basically own just about every major bank and every major corporation on the entire planet.

According to an outstanding NewScientist article, a study of more than 40,000 transnational corporations conducted by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich discovered that a very small core group of huge banks and giant predator corporations dominate the entire global economic system…

An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy.

The researchers found that this core group consists of just 147 very tightly knit companies…

When the team further untangled the web of ownership, it found much of it tracked back to a “super-entity” of 147 even more tightly knit companies – all of their ownership was held by other members of the super-entity – that controlled 40 per cent of the total wealth in the network. “In effect, less than 1 per cent of the companies were able to control 40 per cent of the entire network,” says Glattfelder. Most were financial institutions. The top 20 included Barclays Bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co, and The Goldman Sachs Group.

The following are the top 25 banks and corporations at the heart of this “super-entity”.  You will recognize many of the names on the list…

1. Barclays plc
2. Capital Group Companies Inc
3. FMR Corporation
4. AXA
5. State Street Corporation
6. JP Morgan Chase & Co
7. Legal & General Group plc
8. Vanguard Group Inc
9. UBS AG
10. Merrill Lynch & Co Inc
11. Wellington Management Co LLP
12. Deutsche Bank AG
13. Franklin Resources Inc
14. Credit Suisse Group
15. Walton Enterprises LLC (Wal-Mart)
16. Bank of New York Mellon Corp
17. Natixis
18. Goldman Sachs Group Inc
19. T Rowe Price Group Inc
20. Legg Mason Inc
21. Morgan Stanley
22. Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc
23. Northern Trust Corporation
24. Société Générale
25. Bank of America Corporation

The ultra-wealthy elite often hide behind layers and layers of ownership, but the truth is that thanks to interlocking corporate relationships, the elite basically control almost every Fortune 500 corporation.

The amount of power and control that this gives them is hard to describe.

Unfortunately, this same group of people have been running things for a very long time.  For example, New York City Mayor John F. Hylan said the following during a speech all the way back in 1922

The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation. To depart from mere generalizations, let me say that at the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as the international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes.

They practically control both parties, write political platforms, make catspaws of party leaders, use the leading men of private organizations, and resort to every device to place in nomination for high public office only such candidates as will be amenable to the dictates of corrupt big business.

These international bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.

These international bankers created the central banks of the world (including the Federal Reserve), and they use those central banks to get the governments of the world ensnared in endless cycles of debt from which there is no escape.  Government debt is a way to “legitimately” take money from all of us, transfer it to the government, and then transfer it into the pockets of the ultra-wealthy.

Today, Barack Obama and almost all members of Congress absolutely refuse to criticize the Fed, but in the past there have been some brave members of Congress that have been willing to take a stand.  For example, the following quote is from a speech that Congressman Louis T. McFadden delivered to the U.S. House of Representatives on June 10, 1932

Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a Government board, has cheated the Government of the United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt. The depredations and iniquities of the Federal Reserve Board has cost this country enough money to pay the national debt several times over. This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of the United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through the defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Federal Reserve Board, and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.

Sadly, most Americans still believe that the Federal Reserve is a “federal agency”, but that is simply not correct.  The following comes from factcheck.org

The stockholders in the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks are the privately owned banks that fall under the Federal Reserve System. These include all national banks (chartered by the federal government) and those state-chartered banks that wish to join and meet certain requirements. About 38 percent of the nation’s more than 8,000 banks are members of the system, and thus own the Fed banks.

According to researchers that have looked into the ownership of the big Wall Street banks that dominate the Fed, the same names keep coming up over and over: the Rockefellers, the Rothschilds, the Warburgs, the Lazards, the Schiffs and the royal families of Europe.

But ultra-wealthy international bankers have not just done this kind of thing in the United States.  Their goal was to create a global financial system that they would dominate and control.  Just check out what Georgetown University history professor Carroll Quigley once wrote

[T]he powers of financial capitalism had another 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 in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations.

Sadly, most Americans have never even heard of the Bank for International Settlements, but it is at the very heart of the global financial system.  The following is from Wikipedia

As an organization of central banks, the BIS seeks to make monetary policy more predictable and transparent among its 58 member central banks. While monetary policy is determined by each sovereign nation, it is subject to central and private banking scrutiny and potentially to speculation that affects foreign exchange rates and especially the fate of export economies. Failures to keep monetary policy in line with reality and make monetary reforms in time, preferably as a simultaneous policy among all 58 member banks and also involving the International Monetary Fund, have historically led to losses in the billions as banks try to maintain a policy using open market methods that have proven to be based on unrealistic assumptions.

The ultra-wealthy have also played a major role in establishing other important international institutions such as the United Nations, the IMF, the World Bank and the WTO.  In fact, the land for the United Nations headquarters in New York City was purchased and donated by John D. Rockefeller.

The international bankers are “internationalists” and they are very proud of that fact.

The elite also dominate the education system in the United States.  Over the years, the Rockefeller Foundation and other elitist organizations have poured massive amounts of money into Ivy League schools.  Today, Ivy League schools are considered to be the standard against which all other colleges and universities in America are measured, and the last four U.S. presidents were educated at Ivy League schools.

The elite also exert a tremendous amount of influence through various secret societies (Skull and Bones, the Freemasons, etc.), through some very powerful think tanks and social clubs (the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group, the Bohemian Grove, Chatham House, etc.), and through a vast network of charities and non-governmental organizations (the Rockefeller Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the World Wildlife Fund, etc.).

But for a moment, I want to focus on the power the elite have over the media.  In a previous article, I detailed how just six monolithic corporate giants control most of what we watch, hear and read every single day.  These giant corporations own television networks, cable channels, movie studios, newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, music labels and even many of our favorite websites.
Considering the fact that the average American watches 153 hours of television a month, the influence of these six giant corporations should not be underestimated.  The following are just some of the media companies that these corporate giants own…

And of course the elite own most of our politicians as well.  The following is a quote from journalist Lewis Lapham

“The shaping of the will of Congress and the choosing of the American president has become a privilege reserved to the country’s equestrian classes, a.k.a. the 20% of the population that holds 93% of the wealth, the happy few who run the corporations and the banks, own and operate the news and entertainment media, compose the laws and govern the universities, control the philanthropic foundations, the policy institutes, the casinos, and the sports arenas.”

Have you ever wondered why things never seem to change in Washington D.C. no matter who we vote for?

Well, it is because both parties are owned by the establishment.

It would be nice to think that the American people are in control of who runs things in the U.S., but that is not how it works in the real world.

In the real world, the politician that raises more money wins more than 80 percent of the time in national races.

Our politicians are not stupid – they are going to be very good to the people that can give them the giant piles of money that they need for their campaigns.  And the people that can do that are the ultra-wealthy and the giant corporations that the ultra-wealthy control.

Are you starting to get the picture?

There is a reason why the ultra-wealthy are referred to as “the establishment”.  They have set up a system that greatly benefits them and that allows them to pull the strings.

So who runs the world?

They do.  In fact, they even admit as much.

David Rockefeller wrote the following in his 2003 book entitled “Memoirs”

“For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. 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 is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

There is so much more that could be said about all of this.  In fact, an entire library of books could be written about the power and the influence of the ultra-wealthy international bankers that run the world.

But hopefully this is enough to at least get some conversations started.

So what do you think about all of this?  Please feel free to post a comment with your thoughts below… (you may do that at the source web site)
