Report: at least $20.3 trillion hidden in offshore banks by global elite

According to the most detailed study of the so-called offshore economy to date, conducted by James Henry, former chief economist with the consultancy McKinsey, the world’s richest people have taken advantage of cross-border tax laws in order to put away a shocking $20.31 trillion in offshore banks.

While this likely isn’t all that crazy to those who are familiar with the massive conflicts of interest in the Federal Reserve and the fact that the Federal Reserveworks with banks to put Americans on the line for the failures of banks, it might be surprising to those who have no clue how the international financial system works.

The astounding sum uncovered by the Henry is slightly less than the 2011 Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Japan ($5.87 trillion) on top of the 2011 United States GDP ($15.09 trillion).

The findings were published in the new report, “The Price of Offshore Revisited,” which shows that money continues to leak out of major nations and into infamous tax havens like Switzerland and the Cayman Islands.

These transactions are enabled by private banking institutions which all battle to get the accounts of what the Guardian calls the “global super-rich elite,” also known as high net-worth individuals.

Henry demonstrates that sums between £13 trillion ($20.3 trillion) and £20 ($31.23 trillion) have made their way from countries around the world into these secretive banking jurisdictions.

BREAKING! – US Marshals Expose Biggest [Financial] Scandal in History

TheRedPillGuide
July 21, 2012
Editor’s Note

Allow me to preface the information below with a significant caveat.

The situation presented by David Wilcock at his website Divine Cosmos has been an ongoing undertaking of prodigious proportions which has spanned a lengthy amount of time.  Due to this, there is additional information at his website which is vital to comprehend the key steps that have lead to this current development.

Many people have rightfully been concerned at the current state of the global economy.  They may not comprehend how some of these dilemmas began, but these folks do inherently realize something very disturbing is occurring in the financial sector.

In addition to that, a sizable amount of alternative media pundits have been warning of another looming financial tsunami that is likely to decimate the global economy [and many other sectors for that matter] once mass panic ensues.

The criminals syndicates responsible for the 2008 financial crisis, and the current economic downturns in Europe are addressed below.

There are a total of fifty corporations at this moment in time essentially at the top of the pyramid controlling the world.  Evidence of this has been ascertained by Swiss Scientists and can be seen in page 33 of the document provided below.  The Swiss team published this scientific paper in September of last year.

Why should all this concern you?  Because not only have these corporations controlled nigh every facet of society for profit, but also they have siphoned [y/our] wealth via a variety of methods, particularly the LIBOR manipulation.  As an adjunct, please keep in mind that LIBOR is not the only manipulated economic number, which is extremely disconcerting because additional turmoil is underway.

Below there are mostly key points in order to facilitate the understanding of the event taking place.  However, it is urged that the entire report is read at length at Divince Cosmos in order to attain a greater understanding of the full predicament taking place.  And please remember to always do your own due diligence & exercise discernment.

The Department of Justice — home of the US Marshals — has now blown the lid off of the biggest financial scandal in human history… after a highly covert three-year investigation.

The LIBOR scandal has started the Great Revealing of Financial Tyranny. Mass arrests must begin with mass charges, and mass court cases — and that has now arrived. Disclosure of many great hidden truths will follow.

THE MEDIA IS ALSO IMPLICATED

The Great Revealing has not yet become the one thing everyone is talking about.

The arrests and resignations have only just begun — and the mainstream Western media is equally as culpable as those controlling the financial system.

After all, it’s the same people.

This is one of many popular notions that are proven in Financial Tyranny. It is no longer a “conspiracy theory.”

Vast psyops have been used — including tens of thousands of professional online hit-men, paid to look like normal people sharing their opinion.

Shame has been a very powerful weapon to stop people from learning the truth. No one wants to be “crazy” or hated for their beliefs.

You are about to see a variety of article links where the writers express surprise that the American media isn’t covering this story yet.

As you are well aware, this has nothing to do with the press being “shy.” They are simply staring into the face of their own destruction.

THE COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING COMMISSION — WITHIN THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

On June 27, 2012, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, or CFTC, filed a surprise legal order against Barclays Bank — in a move that has shocked the world.

A wealth of emails were presented, giving irrefutable evidence that Barclays was manipulating their own credit score — to generate almost unthinkably vast profits.

Here is the link where you can download the legal order yourself — and a photograph of the top page of this historic document.

http://www.cftc.gov/ucm/groups/public/@lrenforcementactions/documents/legalpleading/enfbarclaysorder062712.pdf 

This may not seem like a big deal at first — but in order for Barclays to have rigged their own credit score, they had to be conspiring with all the other biggest banks in the world.

These are the banks they are supposedly in competition with.

This story has taken off with unprecedented, explosive force in the UK — but is almost non-existent in the US, except on Huffington Post and alternative news sites.

This legal action required extraordinary secrecy to perform. Had the Cabal gotten wind of it, they would have killed everyone involved.

ALL THE BIGGEST BANKS ARE IN BED TOGETHER

Indeed, the world just found out that all the biggest banks are in bed together.

They are all implicated in a vast conspiracy to lie to the public, and create artificial investor confidence that benefits no one but themselves.

Mass criminal charges are already being prepared — by labor unions, local banks, local governments, state governments and federal governments — as a result of this move by the Department of Justice.

All the evidence is now freely available, as we will see — and the story is nearly moving faster than we can keep up with at this point, with new developments on a day-by-day basis.

THE SCIENCE ALREADY CAME IN — BUT NO ONE WAS PAYING ATTENTION

Last September, an incredible scientific paper was released that proved, irrefutably, that the world is being controlled by a vastly interconnected cabal.

It is rather ironic that these scientists are based in Switzerland — the world capital of secretive, off-the-books banking.

http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/1107/1107.5728v2.pdf

I am going to re-quote some of the first section of Financial Tyranny at this point, and add new material as well.

PROOF OF A WORLDWIDE INTERLOCKING DIRECTORATE

Three scientists from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich — Vitali, Glattfelder and Battiston — recently found conclusive proof that the world is being run by a vast interlocking directorate.

The computer power, database and networking capabilities necessary to prove this point were not available until recently.

Their results were published in New Scientist, a respected science magazine.

 

A VAST COMPUTER DATABASE OF CORPORATIONS

Glattfelder’s team unleashed an impressive armada of supercomputers on Orbis 2007 — a very elaborate database of the top 37 million corporations and individual investors worldwide.

The results were absolutely stunning.

If you don’t mind “getting your hands dirty” with scientific lingo, this excerpt from page 3 of their study explains more about the database and what they found. I have added emphasis where appropriate.

http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/1107/1107.5728v2.pdf

We start from a list of 43060 TNCs [Trans-National Corporations] identified according to the OECD [Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development] definition, taken from a sample of about 30 million economic actors contained in the Orbis 2007 database (see IS Appendix, Sec. 2).
We then apply a recursive search (Fig. S1 and SI Appendix, Sec. 2) which singles out, for the first time to our knowledge, the network of all the ownership pathways originating from and pointing to TNCs [Trans-National Corporations] (Fig. S2).
The resulting TNC network includes 600508 nodes and 1006987 ownership ties….

737 CORPORATIONS HAVE 80 PERCENT OF THE CONTROL

The magic trick isn’t over. This is all still just the set-up, as the elusive magician draws us more and more into the realm of the fantastic — and the impossible.

Believe it or not, only 737 corporations control this network that directly earns 80 percent of all the world’s profits.

The smoke rises — and the audience gasps in awe at how the magician could have ever pulled off a stunt like this.

This next excerpt from page 6 of the paper reveals the truth — in stark, black and white words on this screen.

Don’t let the technical jargon fool you. This single sentence has earth-shaking implications — and everyone needs to know about it.

http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/1107/1107.5728v2.pdf

In contrast, we find that only 737 top holders accumulate 80% of the control over the value of all TNCs [trans-national corporations] (see also the list of the top 50 holders in Tbl. S1 of SI Appendix, Sec. 8.3).

TEN TIMES MORE CONTROL THAN THEY SHOULD HAVE BY PROFITS ALONE
 
And that’s still not all.
The “top actors” within this group of 737 corporations have ten times more control than they should — if the control was only based on how much money they are earning.

http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/1107/1107.5728v2.pdf

In particular, the top ranked actors hold a control ten times bigger than what could be expected based on their wealth.

The results are robust with respect to the models used to estimate control.

THE TOP 147 ALSO APPEAR TO CONTROL 80 PECENT OF THE WORLD’S WEALTH, IN TOTAL

Let’s not forget that these 147 companies appear to be in complete control of the 737 corporations that we were just talking about.

This was very difficult to find, and could not have been revealed without massive computer power — which almost borders on artificial intelligence.

Therefore, we now know that this “super-entity” of 147 companies likely controls 80 percent of all the money to be earned in the world.

Without the advanced technology of supercomputers and chaos theory, no one would have been able to discover this.

History has caught up to the Powers that Were.

THE SAME PEOPLE RUN THE FEDERAL RESERVE

Next question: What kind of companies do you think these top 147 corporations are? Remember – they control a staggering 40 percent of the world’s wealth.

As it says on page 6 of the paper, 75 percent of the corporations within the “super-entity” were financial institutions.

The top financial institutions within the “super-entity” should sound pretty familiar to you by now.

They include Barclays Bank, JP Morgan Chase & Co., Merrill Lynch, UBS, Bank of New York, Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs.

Multiple investigators have concluded that these same financial institutions are the private banks that run the Federal Reserve.

Our Swiss scientists did provide us with a list of the top 50 of these corporations — fully one-third of the whole problem.

 

THE TOP 50 COMPANIES RULING THE WORLD

This list is featured in page 32 of the paper. From left to right, we see the Rank of the company, the Economic Actor Name, a two-digit Country code, a NACE Code, their Network Position, and their Cumulative Network Control (TM, %)
The lower the Cumulative Network Control number you see at the far right, the higher the amount of power they have.
Notice right away that Barclays Bank is the number one most powerful corporation in the entire hidden network — based on this analysis.

YES, THERE IS A MONOPOLY — AND THAT POSES SEVERE RISKS

The next big question is whether this monopoly is engaged in cartel-style corruption. Do they secretly conspire to rig the markets and profit extensively?

The Swiss scientists used the term “bloc” to describe such a cartel, as we will see in a bit.

In this first excerpt from the Discussion section, they reveal that there is no direct evidence yet that this is being done — but the implications are fearsome if there is.

http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/1107/1107.5728v2.pdf

The fact that control is highly concentrated in the hands of few top holders does not determine if and how they are interconnected….

This remarkable finding raises at least two questions that are fundamental to the understanding of the functioning of the global economy.

Firstly, what are the implication for global financial stability?….

Recent works have shown that when a financial network is very densely connected, it is prone to systemic risk [24, 16].

Indeed, while in good times the network is seemingly robust, in bad times firms go into distress simultaneously.

This knife-edge property [25, 26] was witnessed during the recent financial turmoil [in the Lehman Brothers collapse of 2008].

Surprising Links: How Big Banks Manipulate and Influence Your Health

TheRedPillGuide
July 15, 2012

If there is one link you read today from this blog, please let this one be it.  The incisive Ellen Brown, who is an attorney, catalogs in her book Web Of Debt the link between the Banking Cartels and the Medical Mafia.

For those who wonder how the Big Banks are linked implicitly to our health, the medical establishment and to cancer, the interview below is a must watch when time permits.

There is a large amount of information out there which goes more in depth as to how the Banking Cartels control nigh every facet of our society.  For those interested, the links below give additional information in respect to this abstruse topic.

Ellen Brown is a civil litigation attorney who has written 11 books on health and the politics of health, including the Web of Debt: The Shocking Truth About Our Money System (which focuses on the money and banking system itself), and Forbidden Medicine, which traces the suppression of natural health treatment back to the corrupting influences of our financial system.

In the course of writing her books, Brown was asked to join the legal team of Jimmy Keller, an alternative cancer therapist in Tijuana, who was jailed for, as she puts it, “the alleged crime of representing that he had a high rate of cure for cancer.”

“He always showed the movie World Without Cancer to his patients, which is by Ed Griffin,” she says, “so I read the book World Without Cancer, and it linked the cancer industry—the cancer cartel, basically—with the banking cartel. It showed they had the same roots.

It went back to the Rockefeller-Morgan cartel at the turn of the 20th century. Rockefeller, Morgan, and Carnegie supported drugs, funded the medical schools, and basically got the homeopathic schools shut down. (In the 19th century, the homeopathic schools were the leading health treatment.)

… I realized in the course of that that if you wanted to get to crux of the problem, you had to deal with banking, because that was actually where they got their power. They got their power from the power to create money.”

The Shocking Truth about Our Money System, and the Power it Wields Over Your Health

As Brown explains, the shocking truth about our money system is that virtually all of our money is created by banks when they make loans. It’s not created by the government, as most people believe. The way it works is that, while the banks create the principal, they don’t create the interest, so they’re always getting more back than they’re putting out.

“The thing that most people don’t realize is that banks don’t just take in people’s money, and then lend it out again,” Brown explains. “What they do is, literally, every time they make a loan, they create that money on their books. They need the deposits in order to clear the checks, but they’re basically double-counting the money.

… When you’ve put your money in the bank and then you go to withdraw it, they never say, “Sorry, we just lent your money out to your neighbor for 30 years. You’ll have to come back later.” No, they always give you your money. That’s because your deposit’s still there at the same time that they’ve lent it out. So, if you need the money, then they’ll borrow it from somewhere else. But where do they borrow it from? Basically, from the very bank that the check just went into from the loan that they just made.

It’s like a big check-kiting scheme, where you create the money; it goes into another bank; and then you borrow it back. The banks can borrow it back at 0.25 percent at the moment, which is the Fed funds rate. And of course, they lend it out at five percent, or on credit cards 18 percent… or outrageous industry rates. They get a huge spread on money that didn’t actually exist until they created the loan.

… Their control over money is how they manage to corner politics, buy up the media, and basically monopolize the field.”

The Links Between Big Banks and the Drug Industry

Two good primers if you want to learn more about the banking system and the link between the pharmaceutical industry and banking, are The Creature from Jekyll Island, and World Without Cancer.

To me, this link between banking and Big Pharma intuitively makes sense. It was just earlier this year that I came to appreciate what Brown is talking about here. While the focus of this web site is on the damage done by the drug companies, it’s becoming increasingly clear to me that the banking system is the behemoth backing the Goliath-like drug industry.

As explained by Brown, the drug connection goes back to the 19th century. John D. Rockefeller’s father was actually, literally, a snake-oil salesman.

“He was a patent remedy seller. The drugs, of course, are oil-based, and John D. Rockefeller was an oil magnate. He also had a bank. So did J.P. Morgan. The drug industry—the patent remedy industry—was in competition with the natural herbal remedies, and the homeopathic remedies. And the way they prevailed in the whole system was that, first of all, they funded the American Medical Association—the AMA Journal, which got their funding from advertising. And if your drug was advertised in the AMA Journal, then you’ve got the AMA’s seal of endorsement… It was a cartel.”

Where the Federal Reserve Fits in

In this interview, Brown discusses far more than I have included here, so to learn more, I urge you to listen to this fascinating interview in its entirety. Of course, it’s virtually impossible to discuss the financial system without touching on the Federal Reserve. According to Brown, there’s an important distinction that needs to be understood regarding the role of the Federal Reserve, because while both banks and the Fed are creating money out of thin air, there are some differences:

“The Federal Reserve is the lender of last resort, so it is allowed to [create money] without actually backing the money from anywhere… There are basically two banking systems.

This is also very complicated, but there is what’s called ‘base money,’ and that’s created by the Federal Reserve. Those are the banks’ reserves. At one time the reserves were gold. You actually, literally, had to keep a certain amount of gold for your depositors, who could cash in their dollars for gold. But in 1933, everybody stopped trusting the banks, because they knew they didn’t have enough gold, so there were runs on the banks. At that time the dollar was 40 percent backed by gold. So, every time somebody would bring two dollars and cash it in for gold, the bank had to call in three dollars’ worth of loans. The whole money supply was just closing in on itself and collapsing.

That’s why Roosevelt finally took the dollar off the gold standard.

Then, to back the dollar, the Fed created “base money” for the banks to use as reserves.  But it’s a separate system. We don’t actually get to borrow the Fed’s reserves. That’s the bankers’ money. The bankers’ bank is the Federal Reserve.” 

The Economics of Our Medical System and the Drug Cartel

While at UCLA law school, Brown wrote an article about the economics of California’s regulations on doctors and other medical professions, and how these regulations effectively eliminate all competition to the conventional medical paradigm.  It may not be immediately apparent, but the medical profession is very cleverly manipulated and influenced in such a way as to bolster profits for the pharmaceutical industry. It’s a tightly controlled profession, and any competition—such as alternative or integrative treatments related to natural health—is more or less illegal. You cannot claim to treat disease without a medical license.

 “I think what’s even worse than that is they control information,” Brown says. “People don’t even know that there are alternative remedies. Or if they do hear about them, they think it’s quackery, and that it’s been disproven, because that’s what the conventional media says [which is largely owned by the same banking cartel as the pharmaceutical industry is]. You really have to dig to find out what’s out there, and how well natural remedies work. Also, you have to dig to find out how drugs don’t work, and how they’ve been over-hyped…”

The Rothschilds and Rockefellers Join Forces in Multi-Billion Dollar Deal

via: VigilantCitizen
July 7, 2012

If you needed proof the world elite is a tightly-knit group geared on dynasties and bloodlines, well here’s a pretty good one. The most powerful family of Europe, the Rothschilds have joined forces with the most powerful family of America, the Rockefellers, in a super-multi-billion-dollar deal that greatly expands the influence of both families. For centuries, the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers silently shaped the world as we know it, influencing political decisions, the economy and even wars between nations. As Mayer Amschel Rothschild stated: “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes her laws.” 

Both families are now major actors in the creation a New World Order and this deal is a great example of how these ancient dynasties are merging into a single, world-dominating unit. As David Rockefeller stated in his 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.”

-David Rockefeller, “Memoirs of David Rockefeller” p.405

Here’s an article on the mega-deal between the two most powerful families on Earth.

Transatlantic alliance between Rothschilds and Rockefellers for wealth management

As if they weren’t already well-connected enough, the world’s two greatest dynasties joined forces yesterday as Europe’s Rothschild banking clan bought a stake in the Rockefeller group’s wealth and asset management business to gain a foothold in the US.

The patriarchs of the two families – 96-year-old David Rockefeller and Jacob Rothschild, 76 – cemented a five-decade acquaintance as the younger man’s London-based £2bn RIT Capital investment trust bought a 37 per cent stake in the American’s business.

In addition to bringing together the two doyens, the deal will considerably expand the vast networks of both families.

To give a taste: Lord Rothschild’s son, Nat Rothschild, is a well-known entrepreneur with stakes in a range of companies such as Genel, the Kurdistan-focused oil producer run by former BP chief executive Tony Hayward and Bumi, the Indonesian mining group. He was also linked with George Osborne and Peter Mandelson at a notorious party on an oligarch’s yacht off Corfu in 2008.

Lord Rothschild’s niece Kate is married to Ben Goldsmith, brother of Conservative MP Zac Goldsmith and Jemima Khan and son of the late billionaire business tycoon Sir James Goldsmith.

On the Rockefeller side, for starters, David’s granddaughter Ariana is a successful fashion designer who married the construction heir Matthew Bucklin in 2010. And let’s not forget the founders who, although no longer with us, live on through their business creations.

The Rockefeller family’s journey to vast riches began in 1870 when John D Rockefeller set up Standard Oil and went on establish a fortune that is widely regarded to be the largest in US history. The family’s wealth management operation was set up in 1882 to manage that fortune.

The Rothschild dynasty goes back even further, to when Mayer Amschel Rothschild started a business in Frankfurt towards the end of the 18th century. It helped finance Britain’s war against Napoleon in the 19th century and raised funds for a loan allowing the British government to buy the Suez canal.

The Rothschilds bought the stake in Rockefeller from French banking group Société Générale for an undisclosed sum. SocGen, which has owned the stake since 2008, appointed a new head of private banking in March, replacing Daniel Truchi with Jean-François Mazaud.

SocGen’s sale of the stake comes as banks around the world sell peripheral assets to reduce their risks and strengthen their capital bases in order to meet tough regulations aimed at preventing a repeat of the 2008 financial crisis.

Commenting on the deal, Mr Rockeller said: “Lord Rothschild and I have known each other for five decades. The connection between our two families remains very strong. I am delighted to welcome Jacob and RIT as shareholders.”

The Illumination Merchants

(Excerpted from Big Oil & Their Bankers…Chapter 7: Four Horsemen)

By the late 1800’s John D. Rockefeller had become popularly known as “the Illumination Merchant”, during a time when oil was powering the reading lamps of every American household. [1]

Rockefeller’s nickname also alluded to his membership in a grand secret society of global elites known as the Illuminati. Rockefeller had figured out that it was the refining of oil into various end products and not actual crude production which held the key to control of the industry.

By 1895 his Standard Oil Company owned 95% of all refineries in the US while expanding operations overseas. Summing up his attitude towards his new oil monopoly, Rockefeller once stated, “The day of combination is here to stay. Individualism is gone never to return”.

Meanwhile, across the Atlantic the British du Reuter family plunged into the oil business in Iran via its Anglo-Persian Oil Company. The Swedish Nobel and French Rothschild families discovered oil in Russia through their Far East Trading Company, which later combined with Oppenheimer family interests to become Shell Oil.

The Dutch House of Orange joined forces with the British House of Windsor in the Dutch East Indies to launch Royal Dutch Petroleum. The Rothschilds and the European monarchs were Illuminated leaders of the Freemason movement in the Old World.

Freemasonry was derived from the Knights Templar whose inner circle, the Priory of Sion, claim to be guardians of the bloodline of Jesus Christ (Sangreal) which they believe is carried forth by the Merovingan family, French royals who ruled that country from the 5th century until they were vanquished by French revolutionaries. [2]

The Priory of Sion most likely wrote the sinister Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion. Freemasonry and the Knights Templar are highly secretive, organized in a pyramidal and compartmentalized fashion much like the CIA, which recruits heavily from these Brotherhoods.

There are thirty-three degrees in Freemasonry. To achieve advancement to one higher degree, members are asked to spit on a cross. Those who refuse are congratulated, while those who accept are advanced to the next level because they did what they were told. Once a person reaches the 33rd Degree, which very few do, the person is considered illuminated and hence becomes a member of the Illuminati.

According to many researchers of the Illuminati, their goal is to restore monarchies around the world, culminating in the crowning of a Merovingan bloodline World King who will rule over a New World Order dominated by a handful of royal and banking families, enforcing government by decree and employing a single world electronic currency implanted in every human being.

The Illuminati originates from ancient secret societies beginning with the Guardians of Light in Atlantis, the Sumerian Brotherhood of the Snake and the Egyptian Mystery Schools, who suppressed spiritual truths such as mankind’s true origins and one’s ability to self-heal from the masses. These self-professed Princes of Darkness, who may be hybrids of an alien race known as Annunaki, wish to rid Earthlings of their spiritual earthly essence and powers, making it easier to set up global dictatorship.

In 1400 BC Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaton built a Brotherhood Temple in the shape of a cross at El-Amarna, Egypt. Here he established the first Mystery School, which soon multiplied in Babylon and elsewhere. Human sacrifice and mind control were common practice at the schools, which employed initiation rites identical to those of modern Freemasonry. The “Great Work of Ages”, which Freemasons talk of today, is synonymous with world domination and the takeover of the human mind. [3]

Freemasonry is the largest modern-day extension of the Brotherhood. Colonel Albert Pike, former Grand Commander of the Supreme Council of Freemasonry in America describes the secretive group as, “The Custodian and depository of the great philosophical and religious truths unknown to the world at large and handed down from age to age by an unbroken current of tradition, embodied in symbols, emblems and allegories.”

Every US President since FDR has been a 33rd Degree Illuminated Mason, except Ronald Reagan, who was given the honorary title, John F. Kennedy, who was assassinated, and Barrack Obama.

The Italian mafia was founded by Guiseppe Mazzini, the 33rd Degree Illuminati Grand Master Mason of the P-2 Lodge. P-2 is close to the Vatican Bank, ran Banca Nacionale de Lavoro and funded South America’s fascist drug-ridden governments of the 70’s. [4]

Pike brought Freemasonry to America at Charleston, SC in the 1870’s. His book Morals and Dogma serves as a bible for US Freemasons today. In the book Pike proclaims the Satanist bent of Freemasonry espousing, “The Masonic Religion should be by all of us initiates in the High Degrees maintained in the purity of the Luciferic Doctrine”. Pike put his dark side to work, presiding over the Western expansion and genocide of Native American people. Pike also founded the Ku Klux Klan.

Lower level initiates don’t know of this darker side of Masonry and spend their time planning circuses and parades, ostensibly to divert people’s attention from Illuminati plans for global dictatorship. The Masons started the first insurance firm in the US called Woodman’s. The very concept of insurance counts on fear, death and destruction and is nothing more than a mob-style protection racket, with proceeds going into the guns for drugs trade via the Bermuda subsidiaries that virtually all insurance firms have.

The most corruptible men advance to the higher degrees of Masonry, where they become aware of the Freemason role in the Great Work of Ages or New World Order. The Masons swear blood oaths to secrecy. An initiate into the 1st Degree pledges, “binding myself under no less penalty than to have my throat cut across, my tongue torn out by the roots, and my body buried in the rough sands of the sea…”. [5]

The oaths get increasingly morbid as a Mason climbs the degree ladder. The British Crown officially warrants every Freemason Lodge in the world. Whether they know it or not, every initiated Freemason in the world pledges loyalty to the British Crown.

Many of America’s founding fathers were Freemasons including Alexander Hamilton, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. Washington apparently began to see the dark side of the group. He wrote in 1782, “It was not my intention to doubt that the Illuminati…had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more fully satisfied of this fact than am I”. [6]

Both Thomas Jefferson and John Quincy Adams wrote essays warning of the Freemasons, who they knew wanted to return America to British Crown control. In the 1830’s an American Anti-Mason Party sprang forth after a New York State Senate investigation revealed that powerful Masons controlled the US government. Candidates won several state and local elections. The Anti-Masons were eventually absorbed into the Whig Party.

The Illuminati know that energy is the key to global hegemony. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Trust began illuminating the New World with funding from Kuhn Loeb and Rothschild banking families. While the Rockefellers worked the American side of the energy matrix, the Rothschilds consolidated their control over Old World oil resources.

By 1892 Shell Oil, under the direction of Marcus Samuel, began shipping South Sea crude through the new Suez Canal to supply Europe’s factories. Shell took its name from the abundance of seashells which lined the shores of the Dutch-controlled archipelago that is now Indonesia. The Samuel family controls London’s biggest merchant bank Hill Samuel, along with the trading house Samuel Montagu. In 1903 the Nobel and Rothschild’s Far East Trading, which was financed by King Wilhelm III, combined with Samuel and Oppenheimer’s Shell Oil to form the Asiatic Petroleum Company.

In 1927 Royal Dutch Petroleum discovered oil at Seria off the coast of Brunei, whose Sultan would become the world’s richest man as a result of his loyalty to Royal Dutch. The Dutch and British monarchs who control Royal Dutch merged their company with the Oppenheimer and Samuel’s Shell Oil and Nobel and Rothschild’s Far East Trading. Royal Dutch/Shell was born. [7] Queen Juliana of the Dutch House of Orange and Lord Victor Rothschild are the two largest shareholders of Royal Dutch/Shell.

In 1872 Baron Julius du Reuter was granted his 50-year concession in Iran. In 1914 the British government took control of his Anglo-Persian Company renamed it British Petroleum. Britain’s House of Windsor controls a large stake in BP Amoco. The Kuwaiti monarchy owns 9.5%.

In 1906 the US government ordered the dissolution of the Standard Oil Trust, charging that Standard had violated the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. On May 15, 1911 the US Supreme Court declared, “Seven men and a corporate machine have conspired against their fellow citizens. For the safety of the Republic we now decree that this dangerous conspiracy must be ended by November 15th”. [8] The breakup of Standard Oil increased the wealth of the Rockefeller family who retained 25% interest in each new company.

Standard Oil NY merged with Vacuum Oil to form Socony-Vacuum which became Mobil in 1966. Standard Oil IN joined with Standard Oil NE and Standard Oil KS and in 1985 became Amoco. In 1972 Standard Oil of NJ became Exxon. In 1984 Standard Oil CA joined with Standard Oil KY to become Chevron. Standard Oil OH (Sohio) retained the Standard brand until bought by BP, which also bought trust baby Atlantic Richfield (ARCO).

The Rockefellers created powerful foundations to shield their oil billions from taxation, while steering social, political and economic policy. Their philanthropic endeavors included the General Education Board, the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, the University of Chicago, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Lincoln School, where Rockefeller children are educated.

The Rockefellers are big financiers of the eugenics movement which spawned Hitler. Nazi scientists sought a genetically-superior race. Anatomy textbooks used at US universities are based on this Nazi science. DNA research is the next frontier down this slippery slope. The idea is to convince people that they are genetically flawed and must be “repaired” by the Rockefeller pharmaceutical/medical monopoly.

In 1912 railroad magnate Edward Harriman’s widow sold her stake in Morgan Guaranty Bank to J.P. Morgan. She joined Rockefeller in funding a eugenics research lab at Cold Spring Harbor, NY. It was the Harrimans who gave George Walker and Prescott Bush their starts in investment banking and industry.

That same year the First International Congress of Eugenics was convened in London with Winston Churchill presiding. In 1932 the conference was held in New York. Hamburg-Amerika Shipping Line, owned by George Walker and Prescott Bush, brought the German contingent to the gene-fest. One member of the German delegation was Dr. Ernst Rudin of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Genealogy in Berlin. He was unanimously elected president for his work in founding the German Society of Race Hygiene, a forerunner to Hitler’s race institutes. [9]

By 1920 Exxon, BP and Royal Dutch/Shell dominated the world’s booming oil business, with the Rockefeller and Rothschild families and the British and Dutch royals owning the brunt of stock in the Horsemen. [10]

Two other Rockefeller babies, Mobil and Chevron, weren’t far behind the Big Three. The Texas Murchison family, themselves patronized by the Rockefellers, controlled Texaco, while the Mellon family, with its own ties to the Rockefeller fortune, controlled Gulf Oil.

In 1984 the Gulf was swooped up by Chevron. Amoco made a run at replacing Gulf as the 7th Sister but BP swallowed it, creating BP Amoco. In 1999 Exxon and Mobil, who always worked closely, merged in a $75 billion monster deal creating Exxon Mobil. A year later Chevron and Texaco- also historically joined at the hip- officially combined to create Chevron Texaco.

Four Horsemen rode on.
