Kermit Roosevelt, the Mossadegh coup-master [Iran, 1953] admitted in his memoirs that SAVAK was 100% created by the CIA and Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency that acts as appendage of the CIA.

No corporations profited more than US defense contractors [from the 1953 Iran coup]. From 1950-63 the Middle East received 3% of US military aid to the world. From 1971-75 it received 60.2%. [21] The bulk of it went to Israel, Saudi Arabia and Iran. Iran and Saudi Arabia were the "Twin Pillars" in President Nixon's 1972 Guam Doctrine. Nixon and his cronies saw these two nations as critical to ensuring a steady cheap supply of crude oil to the US. Saudi reserves are estimated at 261 billion barrels, while Iran sits atop nearly 100 billion barrels.

... Revenues received by both the Shah and his House of Saud counterparts were recycled back into US money-center banks JP Morgan, Chase Manhattan and Citibank. These banks own huge blocks of stock in the Four Horsemen [Big Four oil companies - Royal Dutch Shell, ChevronTexico, ExxonMobil, British Petroleum] and in the defense contractors which now jostled for position in both Tehran and Riyadh. Chase Manhattan owned Iran's Central Bank - Bank Markazi. The international bankers were the main beneficiaries of this new oil for arms quid pro quo. In Iran the Shah was given carte blanche on US arms purchases. Iran came to account for 25% of US military sales.

The State Department once called the Middle East, "a stupendous source of strategic power and one of the greatest material prizes in world history, the richest prize in the world in the field of foreign investment."

Oil revenues financed the Shah's military procurement program. He agreed to recycle surplus petrodollars into US banks, mainly Chase Manhattan, which his good friend David Rockefeller chaired. Iran's Central Bank, the Bank Markazi, acted as wholly-owned subsidiary of Chase Manhattan. Oil revenue also went to banks like BCCI where it funded CIA covert operations

The Shah served as cop on the beat for the US in the Persian Gulf, while Israel filled that role in the Mediterranean. President Truman called Israel, "a stationary aircraft carrier to protect US interests in the Mediterranean and the Middle East".

Israel is a stationary aircraft carrier to protect US interests in the Mediterranean and the Middle East.

On September 8th, 1978, 3,000 protesters were massacred when Iranian troops under orders from General Azhari opened fire in the streets of Tehran in a macabre scene that became known as Black Friday. Two days later US President Jimmy Carter called the Shah to reaffirm his support.

Within a few years of the Iranian Revolution, the CIA was helping Ayatollah Khomeini identify nationalist leaders so he could target leftists who had formed the Committee of 60, which led the Iranian revolution. In 1983 the CIA and British MI6 supplied a long list of Tudeh Party members to Khomeini. The Ayatollah unleashed a reign of terror against the left; assassinating, torturing and imprisoning over 10,000 Tudeh members and supporters. In 1989 many of those imprisoned were sentenced to death.

SAVAK used heroin money to finance counter-revolution in Iran. The CIA allowed wealthy Iranians to smuggle their heroin into the US using diplomatic pouches. Iranian revolutionaries cracked down on the heroin trade, which had thrived under the Shah.

Zbigniew Bzrezinski co-founded the Trilateral Commission (TC) in 1973 with David Rockefeller... The stated purpose of TC was to form a triad of global influence consisting of North America, Western Europe and Japan.

The TC published The Crisis of Democracy in 1975. One of its authors, Harvard professor Samuel P. Huntington, is a prominent writer for the CFR publication Foreign Affairs. Huntington, intellectual darling of the global elite, argued that America needed "a greater degree of moderation in democracy".

The TC paper suggested that leaders with "expertise, seniority, experience and "special talents" were needed to "override the claims of democracy". More recently Huntington has been pushing his "Clash of Civilizations" thesis, which argues that war between the West and Islamic nations is inevitable.

Barry Goldwater, in his book "With No Apologies"

David Rockefeller's newest international cabal (the Trilateral Commission) intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States.

President Carter in his 1980 State of the Union speech

An attempt by any outside force to gain control of the Persian Gulf region will be regarded as an assault on the vital interests of the United States, and such an attempt will be repelled by any means
necessary, including military force.

Air America re-supplied the CIA-created Meo [Hmong] Army in Laos, which fought a proxy war for the US against the communist Pathet Lao, who had overrun the Plain of Jars region in 1964. Air America ferried weapons into remote Meo villages, then returned to its base at Long Tieng loaded with opium grown by the villagers.

Danish journalist Henrik Kruger penned "The Great Heroin Coup"... Kruger believes [Richard] Nixon used the Vietnam War as a means to take control of the global drug trade.

By the end of the Vietnam War 3 million Vietnamese people were dead. Hundreds of thousands more died in CIA adventures in Laos, Cambodia, Burma, Thailand and China. Thirty thousand US soldiers became heroin addicts and 70% of the world's heroin was being supplied from the Golden Triangle.

In 1975 Cambodia fell to the Khmer Rouge whose leader Pol Pot launched a genocide that rivaled the earlier purges of Hitler and Stalin. The Khmer Rouge, with vigorous support from the CIA, killed 1.5 million Cambodians.

Long before the Vietnam War, the British elite had made a healthy living smuggling opium from the region [Asia]. Lord Shelbourne launched the Chinese opium trade in 1783 with Scottish merchants from the East India Company and members of the House of Windsor-allied Knights of St. John Jerusalem.

Shelbourne's chief propagandist was Adam Smith who worked for East India company which emerged from the slave-trading Levant Company and later became known as Chatham House, home to the powerful Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA). East India worked with members of two secret societies - the Muslim Assassins and the Christian Knights Templar - in organizing the global drug trade. In 1776 Adam Smith wrote Wealth of Nations, which became the bible of international capitalism.

In the Far East the British organized the Triad Society, also known as the Society of Heaven and Earth, to smuggle their opium. Beginning in 1788 the Freemason Grand Lodge of England established lodges in China, one of which was the Triad Society. Another was known as the Order of the Swastika.

The Triads were so named due to the significance of the pyramid to the global elite. The apex of a pyramid represents a king's power to the ancient Freemasons, who promote monarchy as a form of government. The base of a pyramid represents the masses of workers who are the king's subjects. Superimposed with an inverted pyramid representing godly powers, the two pyramids form the Star of David, an ancient symbol used by the Freemason predecessor Knights Templar and now associated with the occult, Zionism and the state of Israel.

In 1839 William Jardine, a Canton-based opium trafficker steered Britain into the first Opium War after Chinese officials confiscated his stash. The second Opium War lasted from 1858-1860. Lord Palmerston commanded both expeditions for the Brits. He was also the High Priest of Scottish Rite Freemasonry in the British Empire.

Throughout the 19th century the British families of Matheson, Keswick, Swire, Dent, Inchcape, Baring and Rothschild controlled the Chinese heroin traffic. The Inchcape's and Baring's Peninsular & Orient Steam Navigation Company (PONC) transported the dope around the world. When a British subject named Mohandas Ghandi spoke out against the opium trade in 1921, he was jailed by India's British rulers for "undermining the revenue".

To the US West Coast, the families brought Chinese coolies to build JP Morgan's railroads, slave laborers who were kidnapped (shanghaied) by the Triads. The Triads came along too, setting up opium dens in San Francisco and Vancouver and using a network of Chinatowns as a channel for heroin. This network exists today. To the US East Coast the families brought African slaves and cotton. These same families built plantations and became kings of southern cotton on the backs of shanghaied Africans.

The Sutherland family, first cousins to the Mathesons, was the most powerful of these cotton families. The Barings owned the clipper ships, which brought cotton to the Old World, while shipping opium and slaves back to the New World. The Rothschild and Lehman families both entered the US via the pre-Civil War cotton trade. The Lehman's made their fortune smuggling cotton to the Union and guns to the Confederacy. The southern cotton barons were the channel through which the British fomented the US Civil War.

The American families Perkins, Astor and Forbes made millions off the opium trade. The Perkins' founded Bank of Boston, which is today known as Credit Suisse First Boston. The Perkins and Morgan families endowed Harvard University. William Hathaway Forbes was a director at Hong Kong Shanghai Bank shortly after it was founded in 1866. John Murray Forbes was the US agent for the Barings banking family, which financed most of the early drug trade. The Forbes family heirs later launched Forbes magazine. Steve Forbes ran for President in 1996. John Jacob Astor invested his opium proceeds in Manhattan real estate and worked for British intelligence. The Astor family home in London sits opposite Chatham House.

Cantonese heroin trafficker William Jardine combined forces with fellow Anglo-Scots the Keswicks and William Sutherland Matheson, to form Jardine Matheson. The families launched the Hong Kong Shanghai Bank Corporation (HSBC) after the second Opium War as a repository for their opium proceeds. HSBC, a subsidiary of the London-based HSBC Holdings, today prints 75% of Hong Kong's currency, while the British Cecil Rhodes-founded Standard Chartered Bank prints the rest.

Freemasonry is a highly secretive society, making it an ideal vehicle for global drugs and arms trafficking.

P-2 is an Italian fascist Freemasonary movement.

Wahhabism [a radical form of Islam] is only practiced in Saudi Arabia and by the Afghan Taliban.

With 261 billion barrels of crude oil lying beneath its soil, Saudi Arabia remains the lynchpin in the international oil grab presided over by the Four Horsemen [Shell, Chevron. British Petroleum, Exxon].

... ARAMCO [Arabian American Oil Company] now controls over one-quarter of the world's crude oil reserves.

... As of 1990 ARAMCO produced over 8 million barrels of crude oil a day, ensuring the Saudi role as "swing producer". During the 1991 Gulf War ARAMCO underwent another expansion and now cranks out an unprecedented 10 million barrels a day.


ARAMCO's primary construction contractor is Bechtel, a San Francisco-based private company that is the largest engineering firm in the world.

... In oil-rich Venezuela [Bechtel] constructed the Mena Grande pipeline. In Saudi Arabia it built ARAMCO's "industrial city" at Jubail, the world's largest industrial project ever.

Bechtel built Japan's Tokyo Narita Airport and the convention center for the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics. It built Egypt's Aswan Dam, the Euro-Disney Theme Park and San Francisco's Golden Gate bridge. Most every dam in the US was built by Bechtel, including the massive Hoover Dam. It built the nation's first nuclear power plant for ARCO in Idaho in 1951 and builds most every nuclear and electrical power plant of any size in the world. It also builds military installations and seaports. Pick your modern engineering marvel and there is a good chance it was built by Bechtel.

... Rural Bolivian farmers saw their private water wells seized by the state and were forced to hook up to the Bechtel grid. Fees shot up 300% for city dwellers who were suddenly spending 25% of their monthly income on water. Bolivian peasants responded with four months of blockades and protests... The Bolivian government was finally forced to cancel the Bechtel contract. In 2002 at a secret world Bank court, Bechtel sued the provincial government in Bolivia for $25 million claiming a loss of profits for the next 40 years.

Admiral Chester Ward a longtime CFR [Council on Foreign Relations] member, let slip that the goal of the group is, "to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the United States ... Primarily, they [CFR] want a world banking monopoly from whatever power ends up in the control of global government."

The CFR [Council on Foreign Relations] is the principal constituency of the CIA, since the elite who run the CFR are the ones who own the overseas assets which the CIA and the US military work to guard.

It is through the CFR that the international bankers and the global intelligence community mingle. The bankers and the spooks share a common goal of keeping the world safe for global monopoly capitalism and often intelligence operatives are recruited from the banking houses where their loyalties to the banking elite have been thoroughly tested.


The very best CIA, Mossad and M16 agents are recruited to become better paid private spooks for multinational corporate and banking empires.

publisher John F. McManus

Bill Clinton knows well that he serves as President because the members of the 'secret society' to which he belongs [Council on Foreign Relations] chose him and expect him to carry out its plans.

By 1974 one-third of the $60 billion pool of OPEC windfall petrodollars flowed into the largest US banks.

Out of $14.5 billion in Middle East oil revenues that made it to US shores, 78% was deposited into six mega-banks: Chase Manhattan, Morgan Guaranty Trust, Citibank, Bank of America, Manufacturers Hanover Trust and Chemical Bank. After a spate of mergers those six banks are now three: JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Bank of America.

[In 1973] future Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volker led US bank and oil company power brokers to a Lagos, Nigeria meeting where they convinced both the Nigerian and Kuwaiti governments to accept only US dollars when they sold their premium grades of oil on world markets.

... By setting a standard where oil could be bought only in dollars, the US bankers were effectively trying to prop up the greenback... The establishment of spot futures markets allowed the oil trading arms of powerful US investment banks like Lehman Brothers and Goldman Sachs to more easily control the price of a barrel of oil on world markets. With the oil markets now dollarized, the bankers could, by controlling oil prices, also control the value of the US dollar.

The launching of a Eurodollar market created a vehicle for recycling the huge slush fund of petrodollars in an unregulated and highly secretive environment. Most all the major offshore banking centers where the Eurodollar shuffle takes place (Cayman Islands, Bermuda, Bahamas, Isle of Jersey, Isle of Man, etc.) are British Crown-controlled. It is through these offshore money centers that Big Oil money flowing through mega-bank subsidiary accounts finances CIA/Mossad/MI6 covert operations and the global drug trade.

Between 1972 and 1978 OPEC earnings rocketed from $23 billion to $140 billion... Most of the windfall from higher oil prices found its way back into the pockets of Western bankers, since many of OPEC's ruling elite, fearful of local IMF-induced currency devaluations, stashed their dollars in foreign banks, causing chronic capital flight problems for their home countries. Other windfall petrodollars went spent buying weapons from US defense contractors like Lockheed, Boeing and Northrup. Still more greenbacks funded CIA covert operations through spook banks like BCCI and Nugan Hand.

In 1981 the US and Saudi governments spearheaded an effort to create the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), consisting of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and UAE. All except Oman are members of OPEC.

The elite families of the six GCC nations [Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) - Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and UAE] are heavily invested in Western economies. High volume crude oil production keeps this investment capital flowing to Wail Street while allowing the GCC elites to live opulent lifestyles, In this way the volume of oil production is much more important than the price received for the oil for Western bankers and the GCC monarchs alike.

As Western dependence on Third World resources has increased, it has become increasingly necessary for the international bankers and their corporations to include local elite cliques in their capital accumulation schemes, making a small group of local people extremely wealthy so that this group will cooperate in selling local resources cheaply to the West.

The richest man in the world is Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, Sultan of Brunei, a tiny oil enclave on the island of Borneo, where Royal Dutch/Shell holds a virtual monopoly over the oil industry and has paid the Sultan well to keep it that way. The Sultan of Brunei is reported to be worth over $60 billion and lives in a l,778-room palace.

The Saudis alone now have over $600 billion invested abroad. Citigroup owns 33% of the Saudi American Bank but is itself now controlled members of the House of Saud. In 1993 Saudi Prince al-Waleed bin Talal, owner of Saudi Commercial Bank, plunged $590 million into Citibank. bin Talal now owns 17.34% of Citigroup, while Crown Prince Abdullah owns a 5.4% share, making them the bank's two largest shareholders.

The Saudi Citigroup share purchases were facilitated by the Washington-based Carlyle Group' which is 20%-owned by the Mellon family that owned Gulf Oil and now owns a large chunk of Chevron Texaco. Carlyle is led by former Reagan and Bush Defense Secretary and Reagan NSC Chairman Frank Carlucci. George Bush Sr., James Baker III and former British Prime Minister John Major are senior advisers and board members at Carlyle.

The Saudis and Kuwaitis are the clear leaders in GCC overseas investments. The Kuwaiti Investment Authority has over $250 billion invested abroad and is the biggest foreign investor in Japan and Spain. Citigroup and JP Morgan Chase handle Kuwaiti investments in the US, where the al-Sabah clan owns stock in each of the 70 largest firms listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

GCC [Gulf Cooperation Council - Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and UAE] investments in Western banks and corporations total over $I trillion. The bulk of this is invested in long-term US and Japanese government bonds. The GCC sheiks are crucial to floating the entire house of cards that is the global economy. Their guaranteed purchases of US debt, which has largely been accrued through defense spending in the Persian Gulf region, keep the US dollar strong and prevent the international financial architecture from crumbling. The emirs and their elite friends also bankroll CIA covert operations, while re-balancing their trade surpluses with the West through the purchase of US weaponry to protect their oil fiefdoms.

It is the House of Saud which most frequently serves as conduit, financier and "deniability factor" for US cloak and dagger military adventures [around the world]..

The Crusader Templars created the Prieure de Sion on Mt. Zion near Jerusalem in the 11th century to guard such relics as the Shroud of Turin, the Ark of the Covenant and the Hapsburg family's Spear of Destiny, which was used to kill Jesus Christ as he hung on the cross.

The Priory of Sion's more important purpose was to safeguard the gold which the Templars had looted from beneath Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem and to preserve the Holy Grail bloodline, or Sangreal, of Jesus Christ which they believe is carried forth by the French Bourbon royalty, the Merovingan family.

... By the 13th century the [Crusader Knights] Templars used their looted gold to buy 9,000 castles throughout Europe and ran an empire stretching from Copenhagen to Damascus. They founded modern banking techniques and legitimized usury, also known as interest payments. Templars' bank branches popped up everywhere, backed by their new-found gold wealth.

The Protocols of the [Vise Men of Zion ... were a manifesto written by a secret society that claimed itself superior to the rest of mankind ... they were intent on a political movement called Zionism which seeks to use Israel as its lynchpin for global hegemony and as guardian of the vast oil reserves of the Middle East region.

... Protocol 4: "In order to give the goyim no time to think and take note, their minds must be diverted towards industry and trade. Thus, all nations will be swallowed up in the pursuit of gain and...will not take note of their common foe. But, again, in order that freedom may once and for all disintegrate and ruin the communities of goyim, we must put industry on a speculative basis, the result of which will be that what is withdrawn from the land by industry will slip through their hands and pass into speculation, that is, to our classes."

Protocol 10: "It is from us that all-engulfing terror proceeds. We have in our service persons of all opinions: monarchists, demagogues, socialists., trying to overthrow all established authority. By these acts all states are in torture; they exhort tranquility, are ready to sacrifice anything for peace. But we don't give them peace until they openly acknowledge our international super-government, and with utterly exhaust humanity with dissension, hatred, struggle, envy and even by use of torture, by starvation, by inoculation of diseases, by want, so that the goyim see no other issue than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty in money."

Protocol 13: "And how far-seeing were our learned elders when they said that to attain a serious goal behooves not to stop at any means or to count the victims sacrificed ...We have not counted the victims of the goyim cattle. In order that the masses themselves may not guess what they are about we must further distract them with amusements, games, pastimes, _passions, people's palaces...these interests will finally distract them from questions in which we should find ourselves compelled to oppose them. Growing more and more disaccustomed to reflect and form opinions of their own, people will begin to talk in the same tone as we, because we alone shall be offering them new directions of thought."

Protocol 15: "We shall create and multiply Freemasonic Lodges in all countries of the world, absorb into them all who may become or who are prominent in public activity, for in these Lodges we shall find our principle intelligence office and means of influence. Among the members of these Lodges will be almost all the agents of international and national police since their service is for us irreplaceable in the respect that the police are in a position not only to use its own particular measures with the insubordinate, but also to screen our activities and provide pretexts and disguises. All these Lodges we shall bring under one central administration, known only to us and to all others absolutely unknown, which will be composed of our learned elders (Illuminat)...The most secret political plots will be known to us and will all under our guiding hands on the very day of their conception."

Protocol 16: "...we shall emasculate the first stage of collectivism - the universities ...any form of study of ancient history ...we shall replace with the study of the program of the future. We shall erase from the memory of men all facts of previous centuries which are undesirable for us. Each.. life must be trained within strict limits corresponding to its destination and work in life. The system of bridling thought is already at work in the so-called system of teaching by object lessons (objectivity). In our program one-third of our subjects will keep the rest under observation ...It will be no disgrace to be a

Another section of the Protocols... states, 'We are the chosen, we are the only true men. Our minds give off the true power of the spirit; the intelligence of the rest of the world is merely instinctive and animal. They can see, but they cannot foresee ...Does it not follow that nature herself has predestined us to dominate the world. Outwardly we... (will) do our best to appear honorable and cooperative. A statesman's words do not have to agree with his acts. If we pursue these principles, the governments and peoples which we have thus prepared will take our IOU's for cash ...the substitution of interest-bearing money ...Economic crises have been produced by us no other means than the withdrawal of money from circulation... One day they will accept us as benefactors and saviors of the human race. If any state dared to resist us, if its neighbors make common cause with it against us, we will unleash global war."

... Its concluding statement reads, "Signed by the representatives of Sion of the 33rd Degree."

In the Middle East region ... Israel was inserted by the Rothschild clan after WWII under the guise of guardian of the secrets of man's origins" and "a Jewish homeland". The actual role of Israel is as guardian of the energy force [oil], which the nondenominational Illuminati bloodline elite control and which they have carefully woven into the fabric of modern life in their quest for control of the global economy.

Since 1973 65% of US arms sales have gone to the Middle East.

Saudi Arabia now boasts the highest per capita defense spending in the world. In 1984 alone the Saudis spent $22.7 billion on US weaponry. The GCC also "rents" military troops from the best US-trained armies in the region, using aid as payment. The Saudis have elaborate military assistance arrangements with Pakistan, whereby the Saudis send Karachi aid in return for the services of Pakistani military units. Kuwait has long received military forces from both Pakistan and Egypt in exchange for billions of dollars in aid. Pakistan's best pilots are sent to the UAE to fly the emir's F-16 fighters. Similar arrangements exist between the GCC and Turkey.

US-trained militaries in Pakistan, Egypt and Turkey are renowned as the best Muslim forces in the world. When combined with Israel, the three countries account for one-half of US military aid.

The US is defending GCC oil with third country armies which it has trained and over which it holds the purse strings, thus curtailing the power of any potential rogue GCC sheik who may decide to go it alone. The arrangement dilutes the political power of the Gulf States' people, whose countries are occupied by foreign troops, ready to dispassionately put down any revolt that might threaten either the emirs or the oilfields.

Technological dependencies insure a perpetuation of the oil for arms quid pro quo which the Four Horsemen, the US defense establishment and the international bankers wish to impose upon the GCC.

The US Army Corps had made a conscious effort to overbuild the Saudi military infrastructure so that it might later be utilized by the US during a Middle East regional war.

BCCI [Bank of Credit and Commerce International] would become the mixing bowl into which Persian Gulf petrodollars were stirred with generous helpings of drug money to finance worldwide covert operations for the CIA and its Israeli Mossad and British MI6 partners.

BCCI was the bank of choice for the world's most notorious dictators, including the Somoza family, Saddam Hussein, Philippine strongman Ferdinand Marcos and Haiti's Jean-Claude "Papa Doc" Duvalier. The South African apartheid regime used BCCI, as did Manuel Noriega.

... With branches in 76 countries, BCCI dealt in conventional and nuclear weapons, gold, drugs, mercenary armies, intelligence and counterintelligence... The bank had close relations with the CIA, Pakistan's ISI intelligence service, the Israeli Mossad and Saudi intelligence agencies... BCCI's main stockholders were monarchs and wealthy oil sheiks from the GCC [Gulf Cooperation Council] nations.

... BCCI was founded 1972 in Pakistan by Agha Hasan Abedi, a close friend of Pakistani military dictator Zia ul-Huq... BCCI took its wings when Bank of America put up $2.5 million for a 30% stake in BCCI. At that time Bank of America was the largest bank in the world, controlled by N.M. Rothschild & Sons.

Bank of America [in the 1970s] was the largest bank in the world, controlled by N.M. Rothschild & Sons.

BCCI's major investors were GCC [Gulf Cooperation Council] oil sheiks. The head of the ruling family of Abu Dhabi Sheik Zayed bin Sultan al-Nahiyan was BCCI's biggest shareholder, controlling 77% of BCCI's stock. Sheik Khalid bin Mahfouz, the Saudi Arabian billionaire who controls that country's National Commercial Bank, the biggest bank in the Arab world, owned 20%. The al-Khalifa monarchs of Bahrain and the al-Qaboo monarchs of Oman owned large shares in BCCI, while BCCI owned the National Bank of Oman.

[In the 1980s] Dubai, one of the emirates comprising the United Arab Emirates (UAE), became a duty-free port and drug money laundry, serving much the same role as Hong Kong had during the Vietnam War. Where Hong Kong had financed CIA opium for arms swaps in the Golden Triangle, Dubai served the CIA smack-for-weapons trade in the Golden Crescent, an area which comprises parts of Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Gold dominates is the currency of drug and weapons traffickers and Dubai is a favorite hub in the global bullion trade. The British Bank of the Middle East dominates the Dubai gold trade. It is 100% owned by Hong Kong Shanghai Bank (HSBC), which monopolizes the Hong Kong gold trade along with Kleinwort Benson, which has close relations with Rio Tinto, a company founded on Matheson family opium proceeds. Matheson's heirs are the Keswick and Swire families which dominate the board of directors at HSBC, Jardine Matheson, P&O and Cathay Pacific Airlines.

Diamonds are important in the laundering of drug money since they are small and easy to transport, yet hold great value. Sir Harry Oppenheimer's , De Beers controls 85% of the global wholesale diamond market. De Beers is a subsidiary of Anglo-American.

Diamond cutting was until recently done in only two places in the world - Antwerp, Belgium and Ashqelon, Israel... In Israel the cutting was financed by Bank Leumi, Israel's biggest finance house which is controlled by the British Barclays Bank.

The world's three biggest mining companies: BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto and Anglo American are all controlled by Oppenheimer/Rothschilds.

According to former British Intelligence officer John Coleman, author of "The Committee of 300", Cecil Rhodes was principal agent for the Rothschilds.

In 1888 Cecil Rhodes wrote his third will and left everything to Lord Rothschild. Rhodes, Milner and Rothschild founded the Business Roundtable in London in early 1900 which charted a course for expansion of the British Empire and for Crown control over the global economy.

The IMF serves as gatekeeper for the World Bank and the giant international money center banks which fall under its umbrella. The IMF serves as judge and jury in ordering Third World countries to privatize their economics. and in imposing harsh austerity measures which hit the poorest people the hardest... If the country in question follows IMF mandates it continues to receive loans from the World Bank. If it does not, the country is cut off, its currency devalued and its economy ravaged by hyperinflation.

In 1975 Anthony Sampson penned The Seven Sisters..., bestowing a collective name on the shadowy oil cartel, which throughout its history has sought to eliminate competitors and control the world's oil resource. After a tidal wave of mergers at the turn of the millennium, Sampson's Seven Sisters were Four Horsemen: Exxon Mobil, Chevron Texaco, BP Amoco and Royal Dutch/Shell.

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.

There are thirty-three degrees in Freemasonry... 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.

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

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 and funded South America's fascist drug-ridden governments of the 1970's.

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". Both Thomas Jefferson and John Quincy Adams wrote essays warning of the Freemasons, who they knew wanted to return America to British Crown control.

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. Queen Juliana of the Dutch House of Orange and Lord Victor Rothschild are the two largest shareholders of Royal Dutch/Shell.

... 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 most of stock in the Horsemen. Two other Rockefeller babies Mobil and Chevron, weren't far behind the Big Three.

The IMF serves as enforcer and collection agency for the international bankers by pressuring Third World debtor nations to open their economies to multinational corporations owned by their banks.

The GCC [Gulf Cooperation Council] shoreline on the southwest side of the Persian Gulf contains
42% of the world's oil.

The Four Horsemen [British Petroleum, Royal Dutch Shell, ChevronTexaco, ExxonMobil] are the top four retailers of gas in the US and own every major pipeline in the world and the vast majority of oil tankers.

During the 1970s Big Oil invested S2.4 billion in uranium exploration. Today they control over half the world's uranium reserves, key to fueling nuclear power plants... Exxon Mobil is the leading coal producer in the US and has the second largest coal reserves.

80% of US oil reserves are still controlled by the nine biggest oil companies.

The world's largest mining company is BHP Billiton.

The Four Horsemen [of oil] have interlocking directorates with the international mega-banks. Exxon Mobil shares board members with JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, Royal Bank of Canada and Prudential. Chevron Texaco has interlocks with Bank of America and JP Morgan Chase. BP Amoco shares directors with JP Morgan Chase. RD/Shell has ties with Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, N. M. Rothschild & Sons and Bank of England.

The Rothschild, Rockefeller and Warburg banking combines control Big Oil.

... Royal Dutch/Shell is controlled by the Rothschild, Oppenheimer, Nobel and Samuel families along with the British House of Windsor and the Dutch House of Orange.

Queen Juliana of the Dutch House of Orange and Lord Victor Rothschild are the two largest shareholders of Royal Dutch /Shell. Queen Juliana is the richest woman in the world... Prince Bernhard, who married Juliana in 1937, was a member of the Hitler Youth Movement, the Nazi SS and an employee of Nazi combine G. Farben. He sits on the boards of over 300 European companies.

The Bilderbergers are a powerful group of European royalty, international bankers and industrialists... Dutch Prince Bernhard founded the Bilderbergers with encouragement from the Rothschilds.

A unified Europe is a major step down the road to Illuminati global dictatorship. The Bilderbergers were the key force it making sure unification occurred.

Prince Bernhard articulated the Bilderberger agenda

It is difficult to reeducate the people who have been brought up on nationalism to the idea of relinquishing part of their sovereignty to a supranational body.

Through a combination of joint ventures, tightly-held technological secrets, vertical and horizontal integration, manipulation of production sites, cheap labor, interlocking bank directorates and outright collusion; the Four Horsemen [of oil] ... are now even more firmly in control of an increasingly oil-dependent world economy than they were 100 years ago. And the same old money families are still riding high in the saddle.

The Baker family is Houston's most powerful political gang. For four generations they have worked closely with Rockefeller family oil interests.

The Bakers heavily endow Rice University and control the key law firm employed by the Four Horsemen [Big Oil]. Baker Botts has offices in Riyadh and carries a huge amount of sway over US policy towards Saudi Arabia.

In a 1973 interview published in the Atlantic Monthly, Kennedy Vice President and successor Lyndon Johnson, himself a Texas oilman, hinted at a conspiracy on that gloomy day in Dallas and talked of a "Murder Incorporated" being run by the CIA out of the Caribbean. Johnson was referring to Permindex (Permanent Industrial Exhibitions), an assassination bureau run by the Special Operations Executive (SOE) of Britain's MI6.

According to a book published by Executive Intelligence Review called Dope Inc., Permindex was funded by the Canadian Bronfman family and the wealthy Polish Solidarist Radziwill family. Permindex leader, MI6 SOE Colonel Sir William "Intrepid" Stephenson, had earlier deployed the Meyer Lansky syndicate and helped rehabilitate Lucky Luciano. SOE Colonel Louis Mortimer Bloomfield was an OSS veteran and Bronfman liaison who chaired Permindex since its 1958 founding in Montreal and Geneva. SOE and Permindex insider General Julius Klein ran guns to the murderous Haganah when the Zionists seized Israel from the Palestinians. He now "handles" Buffalo mob boss Max Fischer and Carl Lindner at United Brands.

... According to many researchers, the seven-shooter hit team consisted of an elite group put together by J. Edgar Hoover and Sir William Stephenson in 1943. The team was formed through the American Council of Christian Churches (ACCC), which Bloomfield, Stephenson and Hoover had founded as a cover for US and British intelligence via ACCC Latin American missions.

... ACCC is a network of aristocratic far-right religions. Its west coast director E. E. Bradley was indicted by New Orleans prosecutor Jim Garrison for his role in the JFK hit. David Ferrie worked under ACCC cover. An ACCC orphan school near Puebla, Mexico was used to train 25-30 of the world's premier marksmen. ACCC Minister Albert Osborne ran the school after he fled the US due to his support of Hitler during WWII. These "students" carried out the Kennedy assassination. Assassins from this same team may have deployed to kill both Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King.

John Kennedy's fate was sealed in June 1963 when he authorized the issuance of more than $4 billion in United States Notes by his Treasury Department in an attempt to circumvent the high interest rate usury of the private Federal Reserve international banker crowd. President Lincoln had made a similar move 100 years earlier and suffered the same consequences.

the wife of accused John Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald told author A. J. Weberman in 1994

The answer to the Kennedy assassination is with the Federal Reserve Bank. Don't underestimate that. It's wrong to blame it on Angleton and the CIA per se only. This is only one finger on the same hand. The people who supply the money are above the CIA.

Warren Commission Chairman Earl Warren, John McCloy, Allen Dulles, J. Edgar Hoover and Gerald Ford were all 33rd Degree Illuminized Freemasons.

In 1957 President Dwight Eisenhower commissioned a panel of scientists to study the issue of overpopulation. The scientists put forth Alternatives I, II and III, advocating both the release of deadly viruses and perpetual warfare as means to decrease world population.

According to Nexus magazine, the Rockefellers own one-half of the US pharmaceutical industry.

In 1969 the Senate Church Committee discovered that the US Defense Department (DOD) had requested a budget of tens of millions of taxpayer dollars for a program to speed development of new viruses which target and destroy the human immune system.

... Out of this research came the AIDS virus which was targeted at "undesirable elements" of the population. The first AIDS viruses were administered through a massive smallpox vaccine campaign in central and southern Africa by the World Health Organization in 1977. A year later ads appeared in major US newspapers soliciting "promiscuous gay male volunteers" to take part in a Hepatitis B vaccine study.

The program targeted male homosexuals age 20-40 in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis and San Francisco. It was administered by the US Centers for Disease Control which, under its earlier incarnation as the US Public Health Department in Atlanta, oversaw the Tuskegee syphilis experiments on African American males.

... The intellectual force behind the introduction of AIDS was the Bilderbeger Group ... the Policy Committee of the Bilderbergers gave orders to DOD to introduce the AIDS virus. The Bilderbergers are close to the Club of Rome, which ... is backed by the same European Black Nobility who frequent Bilderberger meetings. A 1968 study by the Club of Rome advocated lowering the birth rate and increasing the death rate. Club founder Dr. Aurello Peccei made a top-secret recommendation to introduce a microbe that would attack the auto-immune system, then develop a vaccine as a prophylactic for the global elite.

In 1975, a year after attending a Club of Rome conference on the topic, Secretary of State Kissinger founded the Office of Population Affairs (OPA).

Latin American OPA case officer Thomas Ferguson spilled the beans on OPA's agenda when he stated, "There is a single theme behind all our work; we must reduce population levels. Either they do it our way, through nice clean methods or they will get the kind of mess that we have in El Salvador, or in Iran, or in Beirut Once population is out of control it requires authoritarian government, even fascism, to reduce it... The professionals aren't interested in reducing population for humanitarian reasons... Civil wars are somewhat drawn-out ways to reduce population. The quickest way to reduce population is through famine like in Africa. We go into a country and say, here is your goddamn development plan. Throw it out the window. Start looking at your population ...if you don't ...then you'll
have an El Salvador or an Iran, or worse, a Cambodia".

Ferguson said of El Salvador, "To accomplish what the State Department deems adequate population control, the civil war (run by CIA) would have to be greatly expanded. You have to pull all the males into fighting and kill significant numbers of fertile, child-bearing age females. You are killing a small number of males and not enough fertile females to do the job ...If the war went on 30-40 years, you might accomplish something.

FDR's son-in-law Curtis Dall

For a long time I felt that he [FDR]... developed many thoughts and ideas that were his own to benefit this country. But he didn't. Most of his thoughts were carefully manufactured for him by the Council on Foreign Relations - One World Money group.

Professor Stuart Crane

If you look back at every war in Europe will see that they always ended up with the establishment of a balance of power. With every reshuffling there was a balance of power in a new grouping around the House of Rothschild in England, France or Austria. They grouped nations so that if any King got out of line, a war would break out and the war would be decided by which way the financing went. Researching the debt positions of warring nations will usually indicate who was being punished.

Israel serves as a forward base for the Rothschild/Rockefeller oil combine and their European fondi banking pals. Ashqelon, Israel is key to the DeBeers diamond trade which is financed by Union Bank, a subsidiary of Bank Leumi, Israel's largest commercial bank.

Bank Leumi is controlled by the British Barclays, one of the four British banks that preside over Caribbean Silver Triangle drug money laundering. Bank Leumi chairman Ernst Israel Japhet's family controls Charterhouse Japhet, of which Barclays also holds a large stake. Charterhouse monopolizes the Israel/Hong Kong diamond trade.

Israel's second largest bank is Bank Hapoalim, whose founder and owner is British Viscount Erwin Herbert Samuel, another Royal Dutch/Shell insider. Samuel heads the Israeli Red Cross, an arm of British intelligence, and is a Knight of St. John Jerusalem. Bank Hapoalim was also affiliated with BCCI. A third Israeli banking behemoth is Israel Discount Bank, which is 100 %-owned by Barclays, controls the brunt of Israel's financing and funds the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). Sir Harry Oppenheimer, chairman of DeBeers' parent Anglo-America, sits on the Barclay's board, which contains five members of Queen Elizabeth's Knights of St. John Jerusalem, the most of any firm in the world.

Paz Oil holds a monopoly over Israel's oil, petrochemical and shipping sectors. Paz is controlled by the Rothschild family, which was instrumental in founding Israel.

According to Tony Murphy, a researcher at the International War Crimes Tribunal, the US attack on Iraq killed 125,000 civilians, while destroying 676 schools, 38 hospitals, 8 major hydroelectric dams, 11 power plants, 119 power substations and half the country's telephone lines. The attacks occurred mostly at night when people were most vulnerable.

In the months following the war the death rate of Iraqi children under five tripled. Thirty-eight percent of these deaths were caused by diarrhea.

Victor Filatov, a Russian journalist reporting for Sovetskaja Rossya from post-war Baghdad

What further bloodshed do these barbarians of the 20th century need? I thought the Americans had changed since Vietnam... but no, they never change. They remain true to themselves."

The US dropped 88,000 tons of bombs on Iraq during the Gulf War and has rained down countless more bombs since. Many bombs were tipped with armor piercing depleted uranium (DU) warheads, which may account for chronic Iraqi health problems... Three hundred tons of DU ammunition was deployed during the war.

Many believe DU [depleted uranium] is responsible for Gulf War Syndrome, which has killed and permanently injured many US soldiers who fought in the Persian Gulf theater. Since 2000, nearly 11,000 US Gulf War veterans have died from Gulf War Syndrome.

According to UNICEF, as of late 2001, 1.5 million Iraqi children had died as a result of sanctions, while one child in ten died before their first birthday. Thalassemia, anemia and diarrhea were the biggest killers and could have been prevented were it not for a chronic shortage of blood and medicine in Iraq due to the sanctions.

The Gulf War decimated Iraq's sewer and water treatment systems. Iraqis were forced to drink polluted water, leading to numerous health problems. Iraq was not allowed to import chlorine to clean the water since it was deemed it a potential chemical weapon.


Dennis Haliday, former Assistant Secretary of the UN who initially headed the UN Humanitarian Program to Iraq, but resigned his post in protest

We are guilty of committing genocide, through the Security Council against Iraq.

Report from Iron Mountain

In 1961 Kennedy Administration officials McGeorge Bundy, Robert McNamara and Dean Rusk, all CFR and Bilderberger members, led a study group which looked into "the problem of peace". The group met at Iron Mountain, a huge underground corporate nuclear shelter near Hudson, New York, where CFR think tank The Hudson Institute is located. The bunker contains redundant offices in case of nuclear attack for Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell and JP Morgan Chase. A copy of the group discussions, known as Report from Iron Mountain, was leaked by a participant and published in 1967 by Dial Press.

The report's authors saw war as necessary and desirable stating "War itself is the basic social system, within which other secondary modes of social / organization conflict or conspire. (War is) the principal organizing force ...the essential economic stabilizer of modern societies."

... The report goes on to say, "... the war system cannot responsibly be allowed to disappear until... we know exactly what we plan to put in its place ...The possibility of war provides the sense of external necessity without which no government can long remain in power ...The basic authority of a modern state over its people resides in its war powers... (War) has served as the last great safeguard against the elimination of necessary classes."

historian Howard Zinn

American capitalism needed international rivalry - and periodic war - to create an artificial community of interest between rich and poor, supplanting the genuine community of interest among the poor that showed itself in sporadic movements.

In 1909 the trustees of the Andrew Carnegie Foundation for International Peace met to discuss pre-WWI American life. They concluded,

There are no known means more efficient than war, assuming the objective is altering the life of an entire people... How do we involve the United States in a war?

The Report from Iron Mountain goes on to propose a proper role for those of the lower classes, crediting military institutions with providing antisocial elements with an acceptable role in the social structure. The younger and more dangerous of these hostile social groupings have been kept under control by the Selective Service System. A possible surrogate for the control of potential enemies of society is the reintroduction, in some form consistent with modern technology and political process, of slavery... The development of a sophisticated form of slavery may be an absolute prerequisite for social control in a world at peace.

Cargill Continental now controls over 50% of the world's grain trade. It is one of four giant privately held companies that have quietly monopolized the world's grain business since the mid 1800s.

Cargill Continental, the French Louis Dreyfus, the Braziban Bunge and the Swiss Andre constitute the Four Horsemen of grain.

The Italian P-2 Freemason Lodge had a penchant for working with South American dictators, fascist death squads and drug traffickers. P-2's activities affected the European continent as well. P-2 Grand Orient Lodge leader Robert Calvi controlled Banco Ambrosiano... Calvi was referred to as "God's banker".

... Michelle Sindona was Robert Calvi's partner at Banco Amrosiano. Sindona funneled CIA cash to the Vatican and to European Christian Democratic Parties, which the CIA much preferred to the Socialists... over 850 international banks [moved] Italian mafia and P-2 heroin proceeds out of Italy.

... In 1969 Sindona was financial adviser to Pope Paul 'VII and the Vatican Bank became Ambrosiano's biggest shareholder.

... In 1967 Continental Illinois sent $4 million through BFP [Banca Privita Finanziara] to finance a CIA-sponsored right-wing coup in Greece that toppled the Socialists and gave rise to the November 17 underground left, which has since killed both US and British military officers and bankers. During the 1972 elections Continental used BPF to channel $10 million in CIA funds to the Italian Christian Democrats. In 1973 Continental CEO David Kennedy joined the board of FASCO, the Liechtenstein holding company which controlled Banco Ambrosiano. FASCO was a CIA conduit for funding the Italian P-2 and had close ties with Gulf & Western Corporation, controlled by United Brands powder pushers Carl Lindner and Max Fischer.

The Vatican's secretive Opus Dei, often referred to as the "saintly Mafia" was behind the ascent of Polish Cardinal Karol Wojtyla to Pope John Paul II. The new Pope launched an Opus Dei/Vatican offensive to roll back Latin American liberation theology movements.

Gladio [was] a secret NATO strategy implemented after WWII that advocated an alliance between the mafia, CIA, Vatican and Knights of Malta.

The Vatican's Opus Dei had strong ties to P-2 and Patria y Libertad South American fascist movements. The CIA and P-2 propped up the narco-terrorist regime of Alberto Fujimori in Peru during the 1990s.

In 1993 Argentine President Carlos Menem, a close friend of Citigroup and the Bush family, resigned amidst a major drug scandal. Menem was just the latest in a series of crooks to run Argentina, long a favorite drop point for Southeast Asian HSBC-financed heroin entering Latin America. In 1968 the CIA began training police and right-wing death squads in Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina to attack leftist revolutionary groups. The region became an Orwellian nexus of bloody fascist dictators and CIA/P-2 drug running.

Decades of drug corruption have left the Argentine economy in shambles. In late 2001 Argentina defaulted on its $132 billion debt to the international bankers led by Citigroup. Argentine protestors attacked banks, the Argentine peso was severely devalued and the IMF issued the typical austerity demands. Five Presidents later, Argentina has refused to comply with IMF demands and remains cut off from international lending.

The directorate that presides over the P-2 Freemasons who terrorized South America and armed Saddam Hussein through BNL [Banca Nationale de Lavaro] is based in Switzerland at the Alpina Lodge. Members of the Alpina Lodge Directorate include Stephan Delle Chiaie, Lucio Geffi, Club of Rome founder and depopulation advocate Aurelio Peccei and Henry Kissinger. The Alpina Lodge is joined by every Swiss banker worth his salt. The Alpina power-brokers are often referred to as the Gnomes of Zurich.

P-1, P-2 and Freemason lodges worldwide, which house the real mafia, are chartered by ... the Duke of Kent in London, who answers directly to his cousin Queen Elizabeth II, who presides over the British House of Windsor.

The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) [was] a large group of nations traditionally led by India who chose not to align themselves with either the US or the Soviets during the Cold War. The international bankers despised NAM because its members tended to be left-of-center nationalists who guarded their resources from Big Oil and other multinationals.

The international bankers despised NAM because its members tended to be left-of-center nationalists who guarded their resources from Big Oil and other multinationals. NAM was a thorn in the side of the CFR/Bilderberger crowd who wished to portray all Third World revolutionary struggles against their financial hegemony as Soviet-backed Communist threats. They could then play the "Red Menace" card to justify their bloody wars of depopulation.

Yugoslavia ... became a respected leader of the G-77 group of developing nations, which tried to divert OPEC oil revenues away from international banks and into Third World development.

... What really galled [Western multinational corporations] was that ... Yugoslavia had created a highly successful socialist economy no longer dependent on the unjust international financial system. Other Third World countries took note of the Yugoslav example.

Yugoslavia's natural resources are vast... significant deposits of oil [were found] off the coast beneath the Adriatic Sea... The Yugoslav land mass figures into any overland pipeline route connecting Caspian Sea oilfields to mainland Europe. It also sits astride a major highway that connects Europe to Central Asia, while the strategic Danube River flows through the center of the nation. In the eyes of ,the international oligarchy, ripe Yugoslavia now demanded harvest.

The CIA began to sew ethnic division in country [Yugoslavia]. The global powers wanted to smash socialist Yugoslavia into tiny fiefdoms modeled after their GCC [Gulf Cooperation Council] puppet emirates. The US organized the Balkan Stability Pact, which called for a regional free market while CIA-backed Croat and Muslim separatists called for armed revolt.

No war in history has been so driven by a completely unquestioning corporate media than was the war ... against the people of Yugoslavia.

John Swainton, Chief of Staff of the New York Times from 1860-1870

There is no such thing as a free press. You know it and I know it. There's not one of you who would dare to write his honest opinions. The role of journalism is to destroy truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to fawn at the feet of Mammon...We are tools and vassals of the men behind the scenes. We are jumping jacks: they pull the strings, we dance; our talents, our possibilities and our lives are the property of these men. We are intellectual prostitutes.

The aristocratic families of Yugoslavia, largely Muslims who gained power during the reign of the Ottoman Empire, banded together with the largely Croat business class, to form the pro-Hitler Utashe, which committed horrific acts of genocide against the working class Serb majority.

The Serbs are largely Eastern Orthodox, while Yugoslavia's 4.7 million Croatians are mostly Roman Catholic. The Vatican has been accused by Jewish holocaust victims' groups as having served as a repository for the gold which the- Utasbe plundered from Jews and Serbs alike during their terror campaign.

When Hitler invaded Austria, Catholic bishops told their congregations to support the Nazis. Swastikas flew over the Vienna Cathedral.

The international banks backed the Nazis. Max and Paul Warburg sat on I. G. Farben's board, as did H. A. Metz, who was director at the Warburg Bank of Manhattan- later Chase Manhattan. Bank of Manhattan director and Federal Reserve Board member C. E. Mitchell sat on the board of I. G. Farben's US branch. In 1936 Avery Rockefeller set up a combination with the German Schroeder family, who served as Hitler's personal bankers. Time magazine called the new Schroeder, Rockefeller & Company "the economic booster of the Rome-Berlin Axis". Morgan Guaranty Trust and Union Banking Corporation (UBC) also funded the Nazis. UBC board ember Prescott Bush is President George Bush Jr.'s grandfather.

US corporations pitched in for the Nazi's a well. I.G. Farben joined forces with ITT, along with GM, Exxon, Ford and GE in sending funds and key military goods to Himmler's SS. ITT's Sosthenes Behn was a director at National City Bank, now Citigroup. ITT supplied the Nazis with radar equipment, air raid warning devices, artillery shell fuses and all the ingredients that went into the rocket bombs that later reigned down on London. Nazi armored vehicles were manufactured by Ford and the GM subsidiary Opel.

... In 1932 leaders of German industrial behemoths Krupp, Siemens, Thyssen and Bosch signed a petition urging Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg to appoint Hitler Chancellor of Germany. A year later at banker Baron Kurt von Schroeder's home a deal was cut to bring Hitler to power. Attending the meeting were brothers John Foster and Allen Dulles of the law firm Sullivan & Cromwell, which represented Schroeder Bank.

... In the spring of 1934 Bank of England Chairman Montagu Norman convened a meeting of London bankers who decided to covertly fund Hitler. Royal Dutch/Shell Chairman Sir Henri Deterding helped in this effort.

... Even after the US went to war with Germany, Exxon Chairman Walter Teagle remained on the board of I. G. Chemical, the US I. G. Farben subsidiary. Exxon was integral in supplying the Nazis with tetraethyl lead, an important component of aviation fuel. Only Exxon, Du Pont and GM made the stuff. Teagle also supplied the Japanese with his product.

Exxon and I. G. Farben were such close business associates that by 1942 Thurman Arnold, head of the US Justice Department's Anti-Trust Division, produced documents that showed, "Standard and Farben in Germany had literally carved up the world markets, with oil and chemical monopolies established all over the map."

According to a Gallup Poll conducted in the six Muslim countries of Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Jordan, Lebanon and g Indonesia published on February 27, 2002 in USA Today, 78% of those queried had a negative view of the US. A whopping 96% of Pakistanis said the US war against Afghanistan was unjustified and 77% of all Muslims polled agreed. In Indonesia, an OPEC nation far from the Persian Gulf, 89% held a dim view of America.

Mexican President Carlos Salinas de Gortari [was] elected in 1988 as candidate of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI).

... Salinas came to power promising to raise the standard of living in Mexico and modernize the country. But he was a tramp for international capital. His name became synonymous with corruption in the collective mind of Mexico. Salinas was implicated in the biggest drug trafficking scandal in Mexican history. He was kicked out of Mexico and fled to the US.

Mexican narco-dictator President Miguel Aleman allowed JFK's Permindex assassins to be trained in Mexico... Aleman made a living trafficking in drugs through his TAMSA Group, Mexico's fifth largest conglomerate. The director of TAMSA is Bruno Pagliai, cousin of Princess Beatrice of the Italian House of Savoy. Aleman's personal banker was Max Schein of Banco Mercantil de Mexico, whose correspondent bank is Israel's Bank Leumi-subsidiary Barclays and financier of the Asquelon diamond trade. Schein also chairs Sociedad Technion de Mexico, a branch of the Israel Technician Society (ITS), which serves as Mossad's overseas scientific espionage arm. British MI6 operative and Kennedy assassin Colonel Louis Mortimer Bloomfield is an ITS board member.

Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo ... faced a serious challenge from Cuahtemec Cardenas of the leftist Democratic Revolutionary Party (PRD), which had the support of the oil unions and has long been the party of Mexican workers and peasants. The 1994 Presidential vote was close, but ... the PRI made sure Zedillo emerged victorious. According to the Mexican business newspaper El Financiero, the PRI has two separate vote-count systems on its Unisys mainframe computer. One system reflects the actual vote count. The other is automatically stacked in favor of the PRI candidate. In both 1988 and 1994 electoral fraud was rampant.

The PRI launched campaigns of intimidation during both elections. Cardenas had run against Carlos Salinas in 1988. During both campaigns his chief aides were gunned down just prior to the elections.

... PRD President Munoz Ledos' son was kidnapped prior to the 1994 election and a student leader whose group supported Cardenas was kidnapped and tortured. PRI candidate Zedillo narrowly won the 1994 election.

In December 1994 the Mexican stock market crashed, precipitating the Mexican debt crisis. In 1995, just as NAFTA kicked in, the Mexican peso was severely devalued making maquiladora labor even cheaper for multinational corporations. Mexico's banking system was privatized. State-run industries were given away to US multinationals in return for debt relief from international bankers through a flurry of crooked debt-equity swaps.

President Jose Lopez Portillo had nationalized Mexico's banking system in 1982, citing the international bankers' betrayal of Mexico through encouragement of flight capital from the Mexican elite. Lopez Portillo stated that the IMF remedy was to "deprive the patient of food".

The international bankers received a $50 million front-end fee just for sitting down to negotiate with debt-ridden Mexico. JP Morgan Chase and Citibank handled the debt negotiations,.. The US Treasury kicked in $50 billion to get the bankers off the hook, allowing them to pass their Mexican losses on to US taxpayers, while taking ownership of Mexican companies... PEMEX was looted and the money stashed away in those same US banks.

... Raul Salinas - brother of President Carlos Salinas - was laundering drug money through Texas Commerce Bank, where he had over $20 million on deposit. Texas Commerce had branches all along the US/Mexico border. Major stockholders included James Baker and Robert Mosbacher. Jeb Bush worked at the bank. Board members included Mosbacher and Warren Commission goon President Gerald Ford.

... According to a November 1, 1996 article in the Wall Street Journal, Citibank was also laundering some of Raul's drug proceeds. Vice-President Amy Elliot received over $80 million in Citibank deposits from Salinas. Elliot worked in Citibank's private banking department, which specializes in helping the global elite set up offshore corporations and other instruments to avoid paying taxes.

... Swiss investigators found that Raul Salinas had over $100 million in that country's banks which they believed were drug profits. They found thirteen accounts worth $123 million in Geneva, Bern, London, New York, Houston and Hamburg. French authorities questioned Enrique Salinas, brother of Raul and Carlos, for stashing another $120 million in drug proceeds in French banks.

... Prior to the Mexican Presidential Elections of June 2006, PRI Candidate and Mexico City Mayor Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador led all polls. (But ... after a three day delay, PRI Candidate Felipe Calderon was declared the winner.

With the passage of NAFTA, Mexico became the main transshipment point for [Mexican President Carlos] Salinas-greased cocaine entering the US from Columbia. The first stage of the new Free Trade Agreement of the America's is being carried out under the name Plan Columbia. The Plan includes a large energy component, assisting Big Oil in the development of their extensive oil and petrochemical ventures in Columbia, where they hold a monopoly over the nation's energy resources. In the 1980's Shell bought the Columbian operations of Occidental Petroleum and Tenneco. Exxon Mobil owns large coal mines in the country. BP Amoco recently discovered huge oilfields in Columbia.

... The Columbian left began to go underground after the 1948 assassination of popular leader Jorge Eliecer Gaitan... The two armies [are] FARC (The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia) and ELN (The National Liberation Army).

... While the US paints the [FARC] guerrillas as narcotraffickers, the reality is that Columbia's oligarchy and military are firmly in the driver's seat of the country's cocaine business. US multinationals, international banks and the CIA are also involved.

A long succession of Columbian presidents have been in the pay of the drug cartels.

... In 1998 ... the head of Columbia's Air Force was forced to resign after an Air Force jet he was flying on was found carrying 600 kilos of cocaine when it landed at Ft. Lauderdale.

... Columbia's military is knee-deep in the cocaine business, as are the country's paramilitaries, which wealthy Columbian oligarchs and drug kingpins train to attack the Columbian left. The right-wing paramilitaries carry out their state-sanctioned terrorism under the banner of the United Self-Defense of Columbia. They are, in fact, death squads whose record of slaughtering innocent civilians, union members and human rights workers is among the world's worst.

... The goons are trained by British and Israeli mercenaries and often torture peasants on cartel-owned haciendas.

... Confessions by former Army Major Oscar Echandia- Military Mayor of Puerto Boyaca in the early 1980's- shed light on the cozy relationship between the cocaine cartels, the Columbian military and Big Oil. Echandia described how paramilitaries were ordered to kill supporters of the centrist Liberal Party. He said the alliance between paramilitaries and drug traffickers was formed in 1983-1984... Echandia said British and Israeli mercenaries began showing up in Puerto Boyaca in 1989 accompanied by Columbian F-2 intelligence agents and Army personnel. He said financial support for training and maintenance of the paramilitaries came from wealthy ranchers and Big Oil.

From the 1970's until 1986 Haiti was ruled by Papa Doc and son Baby Doc Duvalier. The dictators were propped up by the US, which sent them over $400 million.

... Haiti was the centerpiece of the Caribbean Basin Initiative, launched by David Rockefeller's International Basic Economy Corporation, which aimed to create a low-wage manufacturing platform in the Caribbean for US multinationals. Real wages in Haiti declined 56% from 1983-1991 after the Caribbean Basin Initiative kicked in... The US textile industry has a huge presence in Haiti. Nowhere in the world is labor cheaper.

... President Jean Bertrand Aristide, the Roman Catholic priest who won Haiti's first democratic elections in 1991, was a leader of the Lavalas Family Movement.

He preached liberation theology ... which inspired revolution throughout Latin America... Upon taking office he began arresting (SIN) officials involved in drug trafficking and raised the Haitian minimum wage from $.22/hour to $.37/hour. US corporations groused and began a smear campaign against Aristide. USAID came to their rescue, launching a 326.7 million US-taxpayer-funded assault on Aristide's minimum wage proposal and other progressive initiatives he had implemented.

Andre Apaid, a wealthy Haitian businessman, was hand-picked by USAID to spearhead the anti-Aristide campaign.

... In 1991, just months after Aristide took office, the groups that USAID funded led a military coup.

... Aristide went into exile in the US. He eventually cut a deal with the World Bank which would allow him to return to Haiti. The deal involved ... privatizing 300 state-owned companies, slashing Haiti's tariffs and import duties, and rewriting Haiti's corporate tax and investment laws. Aristide's Lavalas Family Movement would be banned from politics and wages would be frozen at a rate of $ .11-$.18/hour- lower than under the Duvalier dictatorship. Haiti was to establish a World Bank price floor for wages in the Western Hemisphere.

Once the deal was cut, President Clinton intervened in Haiti to bring Aristide back.

... The US quickly tired of Aristide's interference in the drug business. In 2000, after Aristide again won the Haitian elections, the US deemed the count fraudulent and cut off all aid, effectively relegating the island to slow death. A few years later, in a bizarre bit of spook theater, Aristide was kidnapped and flown into exile in Africa.

Freidrich Hegel's Hegelian dialectic put forth a process whereby opposites thesis and antithesis are reconciled into synthesis.

The Rothschild's Business Roundtable that sponsored him ... saw in the dialectic a boon to their monopolies by presenting phony communism (antithesis) as bogeyman to capitalism (thesis). The ensuing conflict which manifest in the Cold War produced a huge market for arms and oil which their trusts manufactured.

Genuine revolutionary struggle in the Third World could be labeled as "Soviet communist conspiracy" and more arms could then be sent to depopulate the undesirable poor, dispensing of agitators who threatened Roundtable interests... By upholding Soviet state capitalism to all the world as an example of "failed Communism", the bankers could discredit this dangerous idea while producing their desired synthesis - a New World Order ruled by the Illuminati banking families and Black Nobility monarchs, with laissez faire monopoly capitalism as their economic paradigm.

In 1915 the American International Corporation (AIC) was formed to finance a Russian revolution... AIC directors included Frank Vanderlip, who two years prior had attended the secret Jekyll Island meetings that formulated the private Federal Reserve; and George Herbert Walker, grandfather of George Bush Sr. The families of Rockefeller, Rothschild, Du Pont, Kuhn, Loeb, Schiff and Harriman were represented on AIC's board.

The [Russian Revolution] lasted until 1922. Some 28 million Russians died. The unruly anarchists were eventually disposed of and the Roundtable crowd launched its "antithesis" in Moscow. Trotsky and Lenin were likely unaware they were being used by the bankers. Trotsky fled to Mexico City, where he was murdered by Stalin's agents in 1940. Lenin died in 1924. He had by then identified the powerful forces behind his ascent as "monopoly finance capitalists"

columnist Paul Scott wrote in 1976

It is [Henry] Kissinger's belief that by controlling food one can control people, and by controlling energy - especially oil - one can control nations and their financial systems. By placing food and oil under international control along with the world's monetary system, Kissinger is convinced a loosely knit world government can become a reality by 1980.

Chilean Minister of Agriculture Jacques Chonchol

Whoever controls food exports controls the world.

Ronald Reagan entered the White House in 1980 determined to splinter the Soviet Union into little pieces and open the country's oilfields to the Four Horsemen.

The Vatican's secretive Opus Dei "saintly Mafia" was behind the ascent of Polish Cardinal Karol Wojtyla to the Papacy. Wojtyla became Pope John Paul II and launched an Opus Dei/ Vatican offensive to roll back Latin American liberation theology movement... During the 1940's he was a chemical salesman for Nazi combine I. G. Farben. Wojtyla sold the Nazis the cyanide they used at their Auschwitz death camps.

In 1982 Reagan met with Pope John Paul II... At the meeting the two agreed to launch a clandestine program to tear Eastern Europe away from the Soviets. Poland, the Pope's country of origin, would be the key. Catholic priests, the AFL-CIO, the National Endowment for Democracy, the Vatican Bank and CIA would all be deployed.

The Vatican is the world's largest owner of equities.

Malta is a nexus of CIA/MI6/Mossad intrigues.

In the 13th century Pope Clement V, backed by France's King Philip, charged the Protestant Knights Templars with heresy, citing their penchant for drug running, arms peddling, gambling and prostitution rings... The Templars took their loot and fled to Scotland to found Scottish Rite Freemasonry. They bankrolled the House of Windsor, which controls Britain and presides at the apex of Freemasonry around the world.

Dr. Johannes Koeppi, former German Defense Ministry official and adviser to NATO

The interests behind the Bush Administration, such as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberger Group, have prepared for and are now implementing open world dictatorship... They are not fighting against terrorists. They are fighting against citizens.

While the US issues certifications to judge countries on their ability to stop drug traffic, Big Oil produces 90% of the chemicals needed to process cocaine and heroin, which CIA surrogates grow, process and distribute.

Ecuadorian Presidential Candidate Manuel Salgado

The world order ... doesn't allow for any frontal attack aimed at destroying narco-trafficking because that business, which moves $400 billion annually, is far too important for the leading nations of world power to eliminate. The US...punishes those countries which don't do enough to fight against drugs, whereas their CIA boys have built paradises of corruption throughout the world with the drug profits.

At the center of Four Horsemen [Big Oil] / GCC/CIA petrodollar drugs for guns recycling scheme quietly sit the international mega-banks. Through every major scandal and behind every despotic regime sitting atop petrodollar wealth, stands a global financial oligarchy - ultimate beneficiary of the world's addiction to oil, guns and drugs... The oil wealth generated in the Persian Gulf region is the main source of capital for these bankers. They sell the GCC sheiks 30-year treasury bonds at 5% interest, then loan the sheiks' oil money out to Third World governments and Western consumers alike at 15-20% interest. In the process these financial overlords, who produce nothing of economic import, use debt as their lever in consolidating control over the global economy.

At the nadir of Four Horsemen [Big Oil] / GCC/CIA petrodollar drugs for guns recycling scheme quietly sit the international mega-banks. Through every major scandal and behind every despotic regime sitting atop petrodollar wealth, stands a global financial oligarchy - ultimate beneficiary of the world's addiction to oil, guns and drugs.

Anglo-American is the Oppenheimer-controlled conglomerate whose subsidiary monopolizes world gold refining. The Oppenheimers also control Rio Tinto and DeBeers - the Cecil Rhodes-founded monopolizer of the global diamond trade.

Kissinger Associates'... co-founder Lord Carrington, board member at both Barclays and Hambros, chairs both the Bilderberger Group and the Royal Institute for International Affairs.

A Eurodollar is simply any convertible currency existing in a country other than its country of origin. A key feature of the Eurodollar market is its lack of regulation and secrecy. The strength of the British pound, unjustified on purely economic grounds, has to do with the multi-trillion dollar Eurodollar petro-slush fund which London attracts, in tandem with the string of British Protectorate off-shore banking centers which facilitate the Eurodollar trade and markets for narcotics, diamonds, gold, platinum, plutonium and arms.

... In 1963 the Eurodollar market was worth around $148 million. By 1982 it was worth $2 trillion.

Citibank Chairman Walter Wriston

If Exxon pays Saudi Arabia $50 million, all that happens is that we debit Exxon and credit Saudi Arabia. The balance sheet of Citibank remains the same. And if they say they don't like American banks, they'll put it in Credit Suisse. All we do is charge Saudi Arabia and credit Credit Suisse. Our balance sheet remains the same. So when people run around waiting for the sky to fall there isn't any way that money can leave the system. It's a closed circuit.

[In the 1970s] a tidal wave of dollar-denominated petrocash flowed into the London -controlled offshore Eurodollar markets, cementing the US-British "special relationship" which props up the House of Windsor.

In 1963 the Eurodollar market was worth around $148 million. By 1982 it was worth $2 trillion.

The ability of corporations and the wealthy to hide their billions in the euro markets is a chronic problem for both the US Treasury and its Third World counterparts. In 1950 US corporations footed 26% of the total US tax bill. By 1990 they were covering only 9%, contributing to massive budget deficits and a $2.4 trillion US debt. It's worse in poor countries, who borrow the sheiks' money from the international bankers at exorbitant interest rates, then watch helplessly as IMF oligarch cronies make off with the loot through BCCI-type bankster stings, sending the cash right back into the vortex of the offshore Eurodollar market. The New York Times estimated that between 1978-1987 Latin America alone lost $600-$800 billion to this type of capital light, an amount nearly equal to the combined debt of the Third World.

the African revolutionary leader and Tanzanian President Julius Nyerere

Should we let our people starve so that we can repay our debts?

The international bankers' ... Club of Rome arm ... advocated depopulation of the world's undesirable poor.

By 1982 the total external debt of the Third World was $540 billion, with 70% of that owed to Western mega-banks.

Profits derived from lending petrodollars to the Third World at the seven largest US banks went from 22% to 60% of total earnings. The biggest victims were Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Yugoslavia.

... If countries are unable to repay the usurious loans, their resources are handed over to the bank's multinational clients... Investment banking giants Lehman Brothers, UBS Warburg, Lazard Freres, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch and CS First Boston take the lead in the profitable arena of default, as advisers to debtor governments.

The world's gold standard had been replaced by a petroleum standard.

By 1982 the euro market had assets of $2 trillion, while US M-1 money supply stood at $442 billion. The US debt skyrocketed while the fat cat bankers which US forces are deployed to protect got "filthy rich". One year following the seminal events of 1973, international money center banks saw their assets increase 72%.

In 1975 of the $14.5 billion in Middle East oil revenues that made it to US shores 78% was deposited with just six mega-banks: Chase Manhattan, Morgan Guaranty Trust, Citibank, Bank of America, Manufacturers Hanover Trust and Chemical Bank.

In the 1960's economist Peter Dooley identified fifteen major financial groups in the US. The Rockefeller/Morgan group dwarfed the other fourteen. It controlled five of six of the mega-banks. Bank of America was controlled by the Rothschild's. The group also controlled Banker's Trust and Master Card.

Senator Lee Metcalf (D-MT) conducted a mid-1970's investigation into concentration of economic power in the US. He found that Chase Manhattan Bank was among the top ten stockholders in forty-two utility companies. Citibank was a top ten owner of forty-one utilities. Manufacturers Hanover was among the top ten shareholders of thirty-one utilities. These three plus Chemical Bank controlled 38% of all foreign deposits in the US. A 1973 Federal Reserve report stated that nine New York mega-banks held 90% of all oil industry debt, 75% of rubber and chemical industry debt and 66% of all machinery and metals industry debt.

Most all Federal Reserve Chairmen have come from the Rockefeller/Morgan combine. Paul Voicker came from Chase Manhattan. When he stepped down from the Fed he became chairman of the Trilateral Commission, founded by David Rockefeller. Alan Greenspan succeeded Voicker as Fed Chairman. He came from Morgan Guaranty Trust and served on the board of Rockefeller's Mobil. The first Governor of the Federal Reserve was Paul Warburg of the German Warburg banking dynasty, while the first Governor of the powerful New York Fed was Morgan banker Benjamin Strong.

The Rockefeller/Morgan combine controls three of the Four Horsemen [Big Oil], largely through its Banker's Trust holding company and interlocking board directorates. In 2000 Chase Manhattan merged with Morgan Stanley, Morgan Guaranty Trust and J.P. Morgan & Company to form JP Morgan Chase. The behemoth banks of Rockefeller and Morgan, recyclers of petrodollars for Iran, Saudi Arabia and the other GCC emirates, were now one.

With the advent of the oil spot futures market in 1973, the oil industry came under increasing control of investment bankers.

The September 2000 marriage which created JP Morgan Chase was just the final merger in a frenzy of bank consolidation that took place throughout the 1990's. Merger mania was fed by a massive deregulation of the banking industry including revocation of the Glass Steagal Act of 1933, which was enacted after the Great Depression to curb the banking monopolies which had caused the 1929 stock market crash and precipitated the depression.

In July 1929 Goldman Sachs launched two investment trusts called Shenandoah and Blue Ridge. Through August and September they touted these trusts to the public, selling hundreds of millions of dollars worth of shares through the Goldman Sachs Trading Corporation at $104/share. Goldman Sachs insiders were bailing out of the stock market. By the fall of 1934 the trust shares were worth $1.75 each. One director at both Shenandoah and Blue Ridge was Sullivan & Cromwell lawyer John Foster Dulles. John Merrill, founder of Merrill Lynch, exited the stock market in 1928, as did insiders at Lehman Brothers. Chase Manhattan Chairman Alfred Wiggin took his "hunch" to the next level, forming Shermar Corporation in 1929 to short the stock of his own company.

In February 1995 President Bill Clinton announced plans to wipe out both Glass Steagal and the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956 - which barred banks from owning insurance companies and other financial entities.

In 1991 US taxpayers, already billed over $500 billion dollars for the S&L looting, were charged another $70 billion to ball out the FDIC, then footed the bill for a secret 2 1/2-year rescue of Citibank, which was close to collapse after the Latin American debt crunch hit home.

In 1992 Bank of America bought its biggest West Coast rival Security Pacific, then swallowed up the looted Continental Bank of Illinois for cheap. Bank of America later took a 34% stake in Black Rock (Barclays owns 20% of Black Rock) and an 11% share in China Construction Bank, making it the nation's second largest bank holding company with assets of $214 billion. Citibank controlled $249 billion. [803] A year later Chemical Bank gobbled up Texas Commerce to become the third largest bank holding company with $170 billion in assets. Chemical Bank had already merged with Manufacturers Hanover Trust in 1990. North Carolina National Bank and C&S Sovran merged into Nation's Bank, then the fourth largest US bank holding company, with $169 billion in its war chest. Fleet Norstar bought Bank of New England, while Norwest bought United Banks of Colorado.

Throughout this period US bank profits were soaring, breaking records with each new quarter. The year 1995 broke all previous records for bank mergers. Deals totaling $389 billion occurred that year.

According to Standard & Poors [1995] the top five investment banks were Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, Salomon Smith Barney and Lehman Brothers.

In late 1998 the Citibank colossus merged with Travelers Group to become Citigroup, creating a behemoth worth $700 billion.

[In 1998] Bankers Trust and US investment bank Alex Brown were swooped up by Deutsche Bank, which had purchased Morgan Grenfell of London in 1989. The purchase made Deutsche Bank the world's largest bank with assets of a staggering $882 billion. In January 2002, Japanese titans Mitsubishi and Sumitomo combined operations to create Mitsubishi Sumitomo Bank, which surpassed even Deutsche Bank with assets of $905 billion. By 2004 HSBC had become the world's second largest bank.

... Chase Manhattan swallowed up Chemical Bank. Wells Fargo bought Norwest Bank, while Bank of America absorbed Nations Bank. The coup de grace came when the reunified House of Morgan announced that it would merge with the Rockefeller Chase Manhattan/Chemical Bank/ Manufacturers Hanover machine.

[By 2000] four giant banks emerged to rule the US financial roost. JP Morgan Chase and Citigroup were kings of capital on the East Coast. Together they control 52.86% of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. Bank of America and Wells Fargo reigned supreme on the West Coast.

During the 2008 banking crisis these firms got even bigger, taking on distressed assets for pennies on the dollar. Barclays took over Lehman Brothers. JP Morgan Chase got Washington Mutual. Bank of America was handed Merrill Lynch and Countrywide, while Wells Fargo got the nation's 5th biggest bank- Wachovia.

The Four Horsemen of Banking [Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citigroup] own the Four Horsemen of Oil [Shell, Chevron, British Petroleum, Exxon] , in tandem with Deusche Bank, Banque Paribas, Barclays and other European old money behemoths... These same Four Horsemen of Banking are also among the top 10 stock holders of virtually every Fortune 500 corporation.

J. W. McCallister, oil industry insider with House of Saud connections, wrote in The Grim Reaper that information he acquired from Saudi bankers cited 80% ownership of the New York Federal Reserve Bank- by far the most powerful Fed branch - by just eight families, only four of which reside in the US. They are the Goldman Sachs, Rockefellers, Lehmans and Kuhn Loebs of New York; the Rothschild's of Paris and London; the Lazards of Paris; and the Israel Moses Seifs of Rome.

... CPA Thomas D. Schauf corroborates McCallister's claims, adding that ten banks control all twelve Federal Reserve Bank branches. He names N.M. Rothschild of London, Rothschild Bank of Berlin, Warburg Bank of ( Hamburg, Warburg Bank of Amsterdam, Lehman Brothers of New York, Lazard Brothers of Paris, Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York, Israel Moses Seif Bank of Italy, Goldman Sachs of New York and JP Morgan Chase Bank of New York.

Eustace Mullins in his book "The Secrets of the Federal Reserve" displays charts connecting the Fed and its member banks to the families of Rothschild, Warburg, Rockefeller and the others. The control that these banking families exert over the global economy cannot be overstated and is quite intentionally shrouded in secrecy.

The House of Morgan presided over American finance ... acting as quasi-US central bank since 1838, when George Peabody founded it in London. Peabody was a business associate of the Rothschild's. In 1952 Fed researcher Eustace Mullins put forth the supposition that the Morgans were nothing more than Rothschild agents.

Eustace Mullins in his book "The Secrets of the Federal Reserve"

[The Rothschild's]... preferred to operate anonymously in the US behind the facade of J.P. Morgan & Company.

author Gabriel Kolko in his book "The Triumph of Conservatism"

J.P. Morgan's activities in 1895-1896 in selling US gold bonds in Europe were based on an alliance with the House of Rothschild.

By 1890 the House of Morgan was lending to Egypt's central bank, financing Russian railroads, floating Brazilian provincial government bonds and funding Argentine public works projects. A recession in 1893 enhanced Morgan's power. That year Morgan saved the US government from a bank panic, forming a syndicate to prop up government reserves with a shipment of $62 million worth of Rothschild gold.

In 1879 Cornelius Vanderbilt's New York Central Railroad gave preferential shipping rates to john D. Rockefellers Standard Oil. The Rockefeller/Morgan relationship was cemented. The House of Morgan was now under Rothschild and Rockefeller family control.

J P Morgan and Edward Harriman's banker Kuhn Loeb held a monopoly over the railroads, while banking dynasties Lehman, Goldman Sachs and Lazard joined the Rockefellers in controlling the US industrial base. In 1903 Banker's Trust was set up by the Eight Families. Benjamin Strong of Banker's Trust soon became the first Governor of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. The 1913 creation of the Federal Reserve fused the power of the Eight Families to the military and diplomatic might of the US government. If overseas debt went unpaid, the oligarchs could now deploy US Marines to collect their money. Morgan, Chase and Citibank soon formed an international lending syndicate.

The House of Morgan was cozy with the British House of Windsor and the Italian House of Savoy. The Kuhn Loebs, Warburgs, Lehmans, Lazards, Israel Moses Seifs and Goldman Sachs also had close ties to European royalty.

In 1904 John Moody - founder of Moody's Investor Services - said it was impossible to talk of Rockefeller and Morgan interests as separate. Public distrust of the combine spread. Many considered them traitors working for European old money. Rockefeller's Standard Oil, Andrew Carnegie's US Steel and Edward Harriman's railroads were all financed by banker Jacob Schiff at Kuhn Loeb, who worked closely with the European Rothschild's.

Several Western states banned the bankers. Populist preacher William Jennings Bryan was narrowly defeated in his underdog run at the US Presidency in 1896. The central theme of Bryan's campaign was that America was falling into a trap of "financial servitude to British capital".

The House of Morgan financed half the US war effort [WWI], while receiving commissions for lining up contractors like GE, Du Pont, US Steel, Kennecott and ASARCO. All were Morgan clients. Morgan had also financed the British Boer War in South Africa and the Franco-Prussian War.

In the 1930's populism resurfaced in America after Goldman Sachs, Lehman Bank and others profited from the Crash of 1929. House Banking Committee Chairman Louis McFadden (D-NY) said of the Great Depression, "It was no accident. It was a carefully contrived occurrence... The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so they might emerge as rulers of us all".

Sen. Gerald Nye (D-ND) chaired a munitions investigation in 1936. Nye concluded that the House of Morgan had plunged the US into WWI to protect loans and create a booming arms industry. Nye later produced a document titled The Next War, which cynically referred to "the old goddess of democracy trick", through which Japan could be used to lure the US into WWII.

BIS [Bank of International Settlements] is the most powerful bank in the world, a global central bank for the Eight Families who control the private central banks of almost all Western and developing nations.

BIS is owned by the Federal Reserve, Bank of England, Bank of Italy, Bank of Canada, Swiss National Bank, Nederlandsche Bank, Bundesbanke and Bank of France.

Historian Carroll Quigley says BIS [Bank of International Settlements] was part of a plan, "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 be controlled in a feudalistic fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert by secret agreements."

BIS [Bank of International Settlements] holds at least 10% of monetary reserves for at least 80 of the world's central banks, the IMF and other multilateral institutions. It serves as financial agent for international agreements, collects information on the global economy and serves as lender of last resort to prevent global financial collapse.

... BIS served as conduit for Eight Families funding of Adolf Hitler led by the Warburg's J. Henry Schroeder and Mendelsohn Bank of Amsterdam. Many researchers assert that BIS is at the nadir of global drug money laundering... Other institutions which the Eight Families control include the World Economic Forum, the International Monetary Conference and the World Trade Organization.

The Rockefellers control Metropolitan Life, Equitable Life, Prudential and New York Life. Rockefeller banks control 25% of all assets of the 50 largest US commercial banks and 30% of all assets the 50 largest insurance companies.

... Companies under Rockefeller control include Exxon Mobil, Chevron Texaco, BP Amoco, Marathon Oil, Freeport McMoran, Quaker Oats, ASARCO, United, Delta, Northwest, ITT, International Harvester, Xerox, Boeing, Westinghouse, Hewlett-Packard, Honeywell, International Paper, Pfizer, Motorola, Monsanto, Union Carbide and General Foods.

The Rockefeller Foundation has close financial ties to both Ford and Carnegie Foundations.

The Dulles and Rockefeller families are cousins. Allen Dulles created the CIA, assisted the Nazis, covered up the Kennedy hit from his Warren Commission perch and struck a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood to create mind-controlled assassins. Brother John Foster Dulles presided over the phony Goldman Sachs trusts before the 1929 stock market crash and helped his brother overthrow governments in Iran and Guatemala. Both were Skull & Bones, CFR members and 33rd Degree Masons.

Of all the Rockefeller brothers, it is Trilateral Commission (TC) founder and Chase Manhattan Chairman David who has spearheaded the family's fascist agenda on a global scale. He defended the Shah of Iran, the South African apartheid regime and the Chilean Pinochet junta. He was the biggest financier of the CFR, the TC and the Committee for an Effective and Durable Peace in Asia- a contract bonanza for those who made their living off the conflict.

Alexander Hamilton

All communities divide themselves into the few and the many. The first are the rich and the well born, the others the mass of the people...The people are turbulent and changing; they seldom judge and determine right. Give therefore to the first class a distinct, permanent share of government. They will check the unsteadiness of the second.

Thomas Jefferson
A country which expects to remain ignorant and free... expects that which has never been and that which will never be. There is scarcely a King in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh - get first all the people's money, then all their lands and then make them and their children servants forever... banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies. Already they have raised up a money aristocracy.

In 1791 the Bank of the United States was founded, with the Rothschild's as main owners. The bank's charter was to run out in 1811. Public opinion ran in favor of revoking the charter and replacing it with a Jeffersonian public central bank.

... In his 1828 campaign for the presidency of the United States, Andrew Jackson railed against the international bankers who controlled the Bank of the United States (BUS) a privately-held central bank

You are a den of vipers. I intend to expose you and by Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people understood the rank injustices of our money and banking system there would be a revolution before morning.

after his election in 1828, Andrew Jackson revoked the charter of the Bank of the United States, stating

The Act seems to be predicated on an erroneous idea that the present shareholders have a prescriptive right to not only the favor, but the bounty of the government.., for their benefit does this Act exclude the whole American people from competition in the purchase of this monopoly. Present stockholders and those inheriting their rights as successors be established a privileged order, clothed both with great political power and enjoying immense pecuniary advantages from their connection with government. Should its influence be concentrated under the operation of such an Act as this, in the hands of a self-elected directory whose interests are identified with those of the foreign stockholders, will there not be cause to tremble for the independence of our country in war.., controlling our currency, receiving our public monies and holding thousands of our citizens independence, it would be more formidable and dangerous than the naval and military power of the enemy. It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government for selfish purposes make the rich richer and more powerful. Many of our rich men have not been content with equal protection and equal benefits, but have besought us to make them richer by acts of Congress. I have done my duty to this country.

International bankers primary income is derived from interest payments on debt.

The Civil War was unleashed, with London bankers backing the Union and French bankers backing the South. The Lehman family made a fortune smuggling arms to the south and cotton to the north. By 1861 the US was $100 million in debt - New President Abraham Lincoln snubbed the Eurobankers issuing Lincoln Greenbacks to pay Union Army bills. The Times of London now called for the "destruction of the US government".

The "Hazard Circular" written by European bankers, was exposed and circulated throughout the country by angry populists. It stated:

The European Bankers favor the end of slavery... the European Plan is that capital money lenders shall control labor by controlling wages. The great debt that capitalists will see is made out of the war and must be used to control the valve of money. To accomplish this government bonds must be used as a banking basis. We are now awaiting Secretary of Treasury Salmon Chase to make that recommendation. It will not allow Greenbacks to circulate as money as we cannot control that. We control bonds and through them banking issues.

The 1863 National Banking Act reinstated a private US central bank. President Abraham Lincoln was re-elected the next year, vowing to repeal the act after he took his January 1865 oaths of office. Before he could act, he was assassinated at the Ford Theatre by John Wilkes Booth. Booth had major connections to the international bankers.

Nearly a century after Lincoln was assassinated for issuing Greenbacks, President John Kennedy was assassinated for issuing silver-backed United States Note.

The Rothschild family combined with the Dutch House of Orange to found Bank of Amsterdam in the early 1600's as the world's first central bank.

In 1694 William III teamed up with the Rothschild's to launch the Bank of England.

Bank of England Deputy Governor George Blunden

Fear is what makes the bank's powers so acceptable. The bank is able to exert its influence when people are dependent on us and fear losing their privileges or when they are frightened.

Rothschild-controlled Barings Bank bankrolled the Chinese opium and African slave trades. It financed the Louisiana Purchase.

The House of Rothschild financed the Prussian War, the Crimean War and the British attempt to seize the Suez Canal from the French. Nathan Rothschild made a huge financial bet on Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo, while also funding the Duke of Wellington's peninsular campaign against Napoleon. Both the Mexican War and the Civil War were gold mines for the family.

A Rothschild family biography mentions a London meeting where an "International Banking Syndicate" decided to pit the American North against the South as part of a "divide and conquer" strategy.

German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck once stated

The division of the United States into federations of equal force was decided long before the Civil War. These bankers were afraid that the United States ...would upset their financial domination over the world. The voice of the Rothschild's prevailed.

Author Frederick Morton estimates that by 1850 the Rothschild's were worth over $10 billion. Some researchers believe that their fortune today exceeds $100 trillion.

The Warburgs, Kuhn Loebs, Goldman Sachs, Schiffs and Rothschild's have intermarried into one big happy banking family.

The Rothschild's control a far-flung financial empire, which includes majority stakes in most world central banks. The Edmond de Rothschild clan owns the Banque Privee SA in Lugano, Switzerland and the Rothschild Bank AG of Zurich. The family of Jacob Lord Rothschild owns the powerful Rothschild Italia in Milan. They are members of the exclusive Club of the Isles, which provides capital for George Soros' Quantum Fund NV, which made a killing in 1998-1999 destroying the currencies of Thailand, Indonesia and Russia.

The Club of Isles group which funds Quantum is led by the Rothschild's and includes Queen Elizabeth II and other wealthy European aristocrats and Black Nobility.

The largest repository for Rothschild wealth today is Rothschild's Continuation Holdings AG - a secretive Swiss-based bank holding company. By the late 1990s scions of the Rothschild global empire were Barons Guy and Elie de Rothschild in France and Lord Jacob and Sir Evelyn Rothschild in Britain. Evelyn is current chairman of the Economist.

The Rothschild's exert political control through the secretive Business Roundtable, which they created in 1909 with the help of Lord Alfred Milner and South African industrialist Cecil Rhodes... Rhodes founded De Beers and Standard Chartered Bank. Milner financed the Russian Bolsheviks on Rothschild's behalf, with help from Jacob Schiff and Max Warburg.

In 1917 British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour penned a letter to Zionist Second Lord Lionel Walter Rothschild in which he expressed support for a Jewish homeland on Palestinian-controlled lands in the Middle East. The Balfour Declaration justified the brutal seizure of Palestinian lands for the post-WWII establishment of Israel. Israel would serve, not as some high-minded "Jewish homeland", but as linchpin in Rothschild/Eight Families control over the world's oil supply. Baron Edmond de Rothschild built the first oil pipeline from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean to bring BP Iranian oil to Israel. He founded Israeli General Bank and Paz Oil. He is considered by many the father of modern Israel.

John Coleman in his book "Committee of 300"

Round Tablers armed with immense wealth from gold, diamond and drug monopolies fanned out throughout the world to take control of fiscal and monetary policies and political leadership in all countries where they operated.

In 1919 Rothschild's Business Roundtable spawned the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) in London. The RIIA soon sponsored sister organizations around the globe, including the US Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

The RIIA [Royal Institute of International Affairs] is a registered charity of the Queen of England and, according to its annual reports, is funded largely by the Four Horsemen of Banking.

United World Federalists (UWF) first president Cord Meyer

Once having joined the One-World Federated Government, no nation could secede or revolt ...with the atom bomb in its possession the Federal Government would blow that nation off the face of the earth.

United World Federalists founder James Warburg testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1950

We shall have world government whether or not you like it - by conquest or consent.

The Illuminati serves as ruling council to all secret societies. They encouraged US independence from Britain so that American affairs could be secretly run by the Crown without interference from British Parliament.

British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli before the House of Commons in 1856

There is in Italy a power which we seldom mention. I mean the secret societies. Europe covered with a network of secret societies just the surfaces of the earth are covered with a network of railroads.

The forerunners of the Freemasons - the Knights Templar - founded the concept of banking and created a "bond market" as a means to control European nobles through war debts... The Crusader Knights Templar looted a huge store of gold and numerous sacred artifacts from beneath the Solomon Temple. (King Solomon was the son of King David)... The claimed lineage to the House of David is what the Illuminati use to justify their global control.

The Rothschild's ... sit at the apex of the both the Illuminati and the Eight Families banking cartel. The family accumulated its vast wealth issuing war bonds to Black Nobility for centuries, including the British Windsors, the French Bourbons, the German von Thurn und Taxis, the Italian Savoys and the Austrian and Spanish Hapsburgs.

author David Icke

The Rothschild's had the crown heads of Europe in debt to them and this included the Black Nobility dynasty, the Hapsburgs, who ruled the Holy Roman Empire for 600 years. The Rothschild's also control the Bank of England. If there was a war, the Rothschild's were behind the scenes, creating conflict and funding both sides.

The Rothschild's and the Warburgs are main stockholders of the German Bundesbank. Rothschild's control Japan's biggest banking house Nomura Securities via a tie-up between Edmund Rothschild and Tsunao Okumurahe.

The Rothschild's are the richest and most powerful family in the world.

Colonel Eli Garrison wrote in "Roosevelt, Wilson and the Federal Reserve"

Paul Warburg was the man who got the Federal Reserve Act together after the Aldrich Plan aroused such resentment and opposition. The mastermind of both plans was Baron Alfred Rothschild of London.

New York City Mayor John Hylan, 1911

The real menace to our republic is the invisible government which, like a giant octopus, sprawls its slimy length over our city, state and nation. At the head is a small group of banking houses generally referred to as the 'international bankers".

The Balfour Declaration leading to the creation of Israel was penned to Zionist Lord Rothschild.

In the 1920's Baron Edmund de Rothschild founded the Palestine Economics Commission, while Kuhn Loeb's Manhattan offices helped Rothschild form a network to smuggle weapons to Zionist death squads bent on seizing Palestinian lands. General Julius Klein oversaw the operation and headed the US Army Counterintelligence Corps. Klein diverted Marshall Plan aid to Europe to Zionist terror cells in Palestine after WWII.

The year 1917 saw the 16th Amendment added to the US Constitution, levying a national income tax, though it was ratified by only two of the required 36 states. The IRS is a private corporation registered in Delaware. Four years earlier the Rockefeller Foundation was launched, to shield family wealth from the new income tax provisions, while steering public opinion through social engineering.

Representative Charles Lindberg, Sr. (D-NY)

[The Federal Reserve Act would] establish the most gigantic trust on earth ...When the president signs this act, the invisible government by the money power will be legitimized. The law will create inflation whenever the trusts want inflation. From now on, depressions will be scientifically created. The invisible government by the money power, proven to exist by the Money Trust Investigation, will be legalized. The whole central bank concept was engineered by the very group it was supposed to strip of power.

The Federal Reserve is made up of all banks in the US, but the New York Federal Reserve Bank controls the Fed by virtue of its enormous capital resources. The true center of power within the Fed is the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), on which only the NY Fed President holds a permanent voting seat.

In the fifth sub-basement [of the Federal Reserve building] lie 10,300 tons of mostly non-US gold, 1/3 of the world's gold reserves and by far the largest gold stock in the world.

When the Fed was created five New York banks - Citibank, Chase, Chemical Bank, Manufacturers Hanover and Bankers Trust - held a 43% stake in the New York Fed. By 1983 these same five banks owned 53% of the NY Fed. By year 2000, the newly merged Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase and Deutsche Bank combines owned even bigger chunks. The remainder is owned by the European faction of the Eight Families. Collectively they own majority stock in every Fortune 500 corporation and do the bulk of stock and bond trading. In 1955 the above five banks accounted for 15% of all stock trades. By 1985 they were involved in 85.2 of all stock transactions.

Still more powerful [than the Federal Reserve] are the investment banks which bear the names of many of the Eight Families. In 1982, President Reagan pushed through SEC Rule 415, which helped consolidate securities underwriting in the hands of six large investment houses owned by the Eight Families: Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Salomon Brothers, First Boston and Lehman Brothers. These banks further consolidated their power via the merger mania of 1980s and 1990s.

A handful of investment banks exerts an enormous amount of control over the global economy. Their activities include advising Third World debt negotiations, handling mergers and breakups, creating companies to fill a perceived economic void through the launching of initial public stock offerings, underwriting all stocks, underwriting all corporate and government bond issuance, and pushing the bandwagon down the road of privatization and globalization of the world economy.

Following the Lehman Brothers fiasco and the ensuing financial meltdown of 2008, the Four Horsemen of Banking got even bigger. For pennies on the dollar, JP Morgan Chase was handed Bear Stearns and Washington Mutual. Bank of America commandeered Merrill Lynch and Countrywide. And Wells Fargo seized control over Wachovia. Barclays got a sweetheart deal for the remains of Lehman Brothers.

House Banking Committee Chairman Wright Patman (D-TX), declared of Federal Reserve Eight Families owners

The United States today has in effect two governments. We are the duly constituted government. Then we have an independent, uncontrolled and uncoordinated government in the Federal Reserve System, operating the money powers which are reserved to Congress by the Constitution.

Since the creation of the Federal Reserve, US debt to the Eight Families has skyrocketed: from $1 billion to over $13 trillion today. This far surpasses the total of all Third World country debt combined, debt which is also owed to these same Eight Families who own most all the world's central banks.

Sen. Barry Goldwater

International bankers make money by extending credit to governments. The greater the debt of the political state, the larger the interest returned to lenders. The national banks of Europe are also owned and controlled by private interests. We recognize in a hazy sort of way that the Rothschild's and the Warburgs of Europe and the houses of JP Morgan, Kuhn Loeb & Co., Schff, Lehman and Rockefeller possess and control vast wealth. How they acquire this vast financial power and employ it is a mystery to most of us.

George Bush Sr. [works] as financial adviser for the Mellon family-controlled Carlyle Group - chaired by Frank Carlucci, who was Reagan and Bush Defense Secretary and chaired Reagan's NSC. Carlucci worked with mobsters in the 1961 CIA assassination of Congolese Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba. He was a Yale roommate of Bush Jr. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. They were joined at Yale by James Baker and George Bush Sr. member of Skull & Bones.

... Carlyle Group was founded by Carter aid David Rubenstein in 1987. It is a private equity fund that specializes in recycling petrodollars from Persian Gulf sheiks back into Eight Families banks.

George H W Bush, James Baker and Deutsche Bank's Peay are joined on Carlyle's board by former British Prime Minister John Major, former SEC Chairman Arthur Levitt, Reagan Budget Director Richard Darman and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General John Shalikashvili. Former Philippine President Fidel Ramos - head of intelligence for the Marcos regime - joins a former Thai Prime Minister, former South Korean Prime Minister Park Tae Joon and the director of the BCCI-tainted Abu Dhabi Investment Authority on Carlyle's Asia Advisory Board.

Carlyle is the 11th largest defense contractor in the US. It is 20% -owned by Mellon Bank and is controlled by the Mellon family's Blackstone Group.

The Eight Families and their Four Horsemen progeny find Islamic fundamentalism quite congruent to the global monopoly capitalism from which they continue to derive their wealth. Both ideologies advocate centralized control, intolerance of opposition, rule by decree and a return to feudalistic rule by monarchy. They share common enemies in nationalism and socialism, which seek to redistribute wealth and power.

Many times throughout history the Illuminati bankers have turned to Islamists to terrorize popular nationalist movements that aimed to wrest control over their nations from the bankers' IMF/ World Bank program of global domination.

There has been a well-founded notion since America's inception that the European Rothschild-led Illuminati bankers have sought to bring America to its knees and return it to the fold of the Crown of England - whose power is derived from oligarchical remnants of the Roman Empire. This medieval rollback could be easily accomplished through the mere withdrawal of Eight Families funding of America's $13 trillion debt, which has mostly accrued owing to the US military's role as mercenary praetorian guard of the Illuminati global empire. Coupled with a devastating US military defeat, America could be brought to its knees.

On August 15, 1871 Sovereign Grand Commander of the Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry General Albert Pike wrote a letter to Italian P-1 33rd Degree Grand Commander and Mafia founder Guiseppe Mazzini. In the letter Pike talked of a Brotherhood plan for three World Wars. The first, he said, would destroy czarist Russia and create a Communist "bogeyman" which the bankers could employ to justify their foreign interventions around the world. The second, Pike said, would be used to create Israel, which would become a mercenary force for the international bankers, protecting oil interests for Rothschild and Rockefeller combines.

The Third World War, stated Pike's letter, would pit Arabs against Zionists, and would culminate in a New World Order completely controlled by the international bankers and their secret societies.

A group of commercial airline pilots, many of them Vietnam veterans, met in the aftermath of 911 to discuss the logistical aspects of the tragedy. They concluded overwhelmingly that the three Arabs who supposedly flew the jumbo jets into the WTC and the Pentagon could absolutely not have done so with the limited flight simulator experience which they received at US flight schools. The group found it odd that the transponders on the planes had been turned off, since this would serve no purpose if the Arabs were in control of the planes. The group came to believe that the planes' flight paths were programmed by AWAC surveillance planes flying off the Atlantic coast. This fly by wire technology has existed for years and is employed on drone CIA Predator spy planes.

... The commercial pilots said this accounts for the transponders being turned off, since this is necessary to hand over manual control of an aircraft to computerized AWACS, which then fly the plane by remote control. This would also account for the pinpoint accuracy of the attacks, which had to have been calibrated using engineering specifications to have brought down both WTC towers- though it also appears that bombs played a key role.

In June 2001 a female Russian doctor stated in a Pravda column that the US would be subject to a massive terrorist attack in late August 2001. She was then asked what she believed was coming next. She suggested selling dollars and buying Russian rubles, saying that the secret group behind 911 was the most powerful force in the world, worth over $300 trillion. She said this group would soon "strike America in the back" while it was down and that the next shoe to drop would be the decimation of the US economy... This secret group cold only be the Illuminati Rothschild-led Eight Families.
