Combining the following quotes and reading them as a group does an excellent job of painting the big picture of what’s going on in the world. It tells an illuminating story effectively, efficiently, and convincingly.
Many of the quotes will no doubt be known by some of you.
I have simply gathered quotes from prominent people, current and past, and organized them to clearly show the three basic elements – means, motive, and opportunity.
For those of you ready to hit the delete button, first consider how easily verified these quotes are. Some of the quotes in more recent years appeared on television and are archived as short video clips on the internet. Others appear in books, magazines, or radio, and can be traced back to their original source to verify their authenticity. I challenge all of you, especially those that are new to this information and care about future generations, to begin verifying this information for yourself.
(Note: this article is best read from a printed copy. Also, it serves a purpose to print it out IT SPEAKS FOR ITSELF! And since it does speak (in the words of others) for itself, having a hard copy to leave on coffee tables or take to work, etc., is an easy way to educate people.) (Note also, some of the quotes pertain to more than one element.)
I. WHO (as in who would have the OPPORTUNITY)
“There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fund raising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.”
— Senator Daniel K. Inouye at the Iran Contra Hearings – on national Television
“The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise their power from behind the scenes.”
— Justice Felix Frankfurter, U.S. Supreme Court.
“We have operating within our government and political system, another body representing another form of government, a bureaucratic elite which believes our Constitution is outmoded… All the strange developments in foreign policy agreements may be traced to this group who are going to make us over to suit their pleasure… This political action group has its own local political support organizations, its own pressure groups, its own vested interests, its foothold within our government, and its own propaganda apparatus.”
— Senator William Jenner, February 23, 1954.
“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”
— President Woodrow Wilson
“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. ”
— Theodore Roosevelt, April 19, 1906
“I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.”
— General Douglas MacArthur
“I never would have agreed to the formulation of the Central Intelligence agency back in ’47, if I had known it would become the American Gestapo.”
— Harry S Truman (1961)
“The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. ….At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties.”
— New York City Mayor John F. Hylan, 1922
“For some time I have been disturbed by the way the CIA has been diverted from it’s original assignment. It has become an operational and at times a policy making arm of the government.”
— President Harry Truman
The drive of the Rockefeller’s and their allies is to create a one-world government combining super-capitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control…. Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent.”
— Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976, killed in the Korean Airlines 747 that was shot down by the Soviets
“………Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
— David Rockefeller, in his book “Memoirs” , 2002
“The Council on Foreign Relations is “the establishment.” Not only does it have influence and power in key decision-making positions at the highest levels of government ….. to justify the high level decisions for converting the U.S. from a sovereign Constitutional Republic into a servile member state of a one-world dictatorship.”
— Former Congressman John Rarick 1971
“The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) … believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established.”
— Professor of History Carroll Quigley, Georgetown University, in his book “Tragedy and Hope”.
“The interests behind the Bush Administration, such as the CFR, The Trilateral Commission – founded by Brzezinski for David Rockefeller – and the Bilderberger Group, have prepared for and are now moving to implement open world dictatorship within the next five years. They are not fighting against terrorists. They are fighting against citizens [rights].”… “ The current elites are creating so much fear that people don’t know how to respond.“
— Dr. Johannes B. Koeppl, Ph.D., former German defense ministry official and adviser to former NATO Secretary General Manfred Werne
“The powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled … by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements, arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the worlds’ central banks which were themselves private corporations.
—Tragedy and Hope, Professor Carroll Quigley
“Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the earth; take it away from them but leave them with the power to create credit; and, with a flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again… If you want to be slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let the bankers control money and control credit.”
— Sir Josiah Stamp, Director, Bank of England, 1940.
“The modern theory of the perpetuation of debt has drenched the earth with blood, and crushed its inhabitants under burdens ever accumulating.”
— Thomas Jefferson
“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson.”
— U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt in a letter..
The governments of the present day have to deal not merely with other governments, with emperors, kings and ministers, but also with the secret societies which have everywhere their unscrupulous agents, and can at the last moment upset all the governments’ plans.”
— British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, 1876
II. What / WHY (as in what is the MOTIVE and why are they doing it)
“We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.”
— Statement made before the United States Senate on Feb. 7, 1950 by

— Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., in Foreign Affairs Journal – July/August 1995
“The invisible Money Power is working to control and enslave mankind. It financed Communism, Fascism, Marxism, Zionism, Socialism. All of these are directed to making the United States a member of a World Government …”
— AMERICAN MERCURY MAGAZINE, December 1957, pg. 92.
“Fundamental Bible-believing people do not have the right to indoctrinate their children in their religious beliefs because we, the state, are preparing them for the year 2000, when America will be part of a one-world global society and their children will not fit in.”
—Nebraska State Senator Peter Hoagland, speaking on radio in 1983.
“We believe a new order will be born no later than early in the next century and that the death throes of the old and the birth pangs of the new will be a testing time for the human species.”
— Richard A. Falk, “Toward a New World Order”
“We have before us the opportunity to forge for ourselves and for future generations a new world order, a world where the rule of law, not the rule of the jungle, governs the conduct of nations. When we are successful, and we will be, we have a real chance at this new world order, …..”
— President George H. W. Bush, on national Television – 9/11/1991
“… when the struggle seems to be drifting definitely towards a world social democracy, there may still be very great delays and disappointments before it becomes an efficient and beneficent world system. Countless people … will hate the new world order … and will die protesting against it. When we attempt to evaluate its promise, we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and graceful-looking people.”
— H. G. Wells, in his book entitled “The New World Order” (1939)
“What is important is to dwell upon is the increasing evidence of the existence of a secret conspiracy, throughout the world, for the destruction of organized government and the letting loose of evil.” (Christian Science Monitor 6/19/1920)
“The one who cannot see that on Earth a big endeavor is taking place, an important plan, on which realization we are allowed to collaborate as faithful servants, certainly has to be blind”

III. a. HOW (as in MEANS)
“As America becomes an increasingly multicultural society, it may find it more difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues, except in the circumstances of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat. ”
— Zbigniew Brzezinski in his book “the Grand Chessboard”
“Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government.”
— Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference in Evians, France, 1991
“The easiest way to gain control of the population is to carry out acts of terror.” The public “will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened.”
— Joseph Stalin
“If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.”
— James Madison
“We need a common enemy to unite us.”
— Condoleeza Rice, March 2000
The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists.
— J. Edgar Hoover
“Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything.”
— Joseph Stalin
“Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination. This is the war of the future.”
— Adolf Hitler
“The Technocratic Age is slowly designing an every day more controlled society. The society will be dominated by an elite of persons free from traditional values who will have no doubt in fulfilling their objectives by means of purged techniques with which they will influence the behavior of people and will control and watch the society in all details”. “… it will become possible to exert a practically permanent watch on each citizen of the world”.
— Zbigniew Brzezinski – (Illuminati and co-founder of Trilateral Commission)
“The high office of President has been used to foment a plot to destroy the American’s freedom, and before I leave office I must inform the citizen of his plight.”
— President John F. Kennedy, Ten days before his assassination.
“The Trilateral Commission is 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. ….”
— U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater from his 1964 book “No Apologies”
“The idea was that those who direct the overall conspiracy could use the differences in those two so-called ideologies [marxism/fascism/socialism v. democracy/capitalism] to enable them [the Illuminati] to divide larger and larger portions of the human race into opposing camps so that they could be armed and then brainwashed into fighting and destroying each other.”
— Myron Fagan
“In politics nothing happens by accident, if it happens you can bet it was planned that way.”
— Franklin D. Roosevelt
“For a long time I felt that FDR had developed many thoughts and ideas that were his own to benefit this country, the United States. But, he didn’t. Most of his thoughts, his political ammunition, as it were, were carefully manufactured for him in advanced by the Council on Foreign Relations-One World Money group” ……
……”The UN is but a long-range, international banking apparatus clearly set up for financial and economic profit by a small group of powerful One- World revolutionaries, hungry for profit and power”…..
….”The depression was the calculated ‘shearing’ of the public by the World Money powers, triggered by the planned sudden shortage of supply of call money in the New York money market
….The One World Government leaders and their ever close bankers have now acquired full control of the money and credit machinery of the U.S. via the creation of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank.”
— Curtis Dall, FDR’s son-in-law as quoted in his book, My Exploited Father-in-Law.
“Let me end my talk by abusing slightly my status as an official representative of the Federal Reserve. I would like to say to Milton and Anna: Regarding the Great Depression. You’re right, we did it. We’re very sorry.”…
— Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke – At the Conference to Honor Milton Friedman, University of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois November 8, 2002 – On Milton Friedman’s Ninetieth Birthday
“NAFTA is a major stepping stone to the New World Order,”
— Henry Kissinger.
“The Final Act of the Uruguay Round, marking the conclusion of the most ambitious trade negotiation of our century, will give birth – in Morocco – to the World Trade Organization, the third pillar of the New World Order, along with the United Nations and the International Monetary Fund.”
— Part of full-page advertisement by the government of Morocco in The New York Times (April 1994)
“It doesn’t matter who the people voted for; they always vote for us”.
— Joseph Stalin
IV. b. How – Propaganda / Media
“The CIA owns everyone of any significance in the major media.”
— William Colby, former director of the CIA (1973-1976).
We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.
— William Casey, CIA Director
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected the promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world-government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the National auto determination practiced in past centuries”
— David Rockefeller in an address to a Trilateral Commission meeting in June of 1991
“Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.”
— Joseph Goebbels
“It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion.”
— Joseph Goebbels
“A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”
— Vladimir Lenin
“By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise.” “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.” “What good fortune for governments that the people do not think.”
— Adolf Hitler
“Many people would sooner die than think. In fact they do.”
— Bertrand Russell
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” “The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly: It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.” “During a war, news should be given out for instruction rather than information.” “We have made the Reich by propaganda.”
— Joseph Goebbels
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. …In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”
— Edward Bernays, in his book “Propaganda”
“Our job is not to give people what they want but what we decide they ought to have.”
— Richard Salant, former president of CBS News.
“We know in the not too distant future, a half dozen corporations are going to control the media. We took this step (merger) to ensure we were one of them”
— Time Warner spokesperson.
“In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press….They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. “An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.”
— U.S. Congressman Oscar Callaway, 1917
“Why of course the people don’t want war … But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship … Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.” — Hermann Goering, German leader, at the Nuremberg Trials after World War II
“All this was inspired by the principle – which is quite true in itself – that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying. These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes…..”
— Hitler Mein Kampf
“…. Producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”
— Aldous Huxley
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed, and hence clamorous to be led to safety, by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”
— H.L. Mencken
V. c. How – Banking / Money
“Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world.” – Henry Kissinger, Council on Foreign Relations
““Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812), founder of the House of Rothschild.”
“The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or be so dependent upon its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.” The Rothschild brothers of London writing to associates in New York, 1863.
“The bank hath benefit of interest on all moneys which it creates out of nothing.” William Paterson, founder of the Bank of England in 1694, then a privately owned bank
International Banker “History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance.”
— James Madison
“The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. The banking powers are more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. They denounce as public enemies all who question their methods or throw light upon their crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe. [As a most undesirable consequence of the war…] Corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow. The money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed.”
— Abraham Lincoln 1862
“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies . . . . . . The issuing power (of currency) should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”
— Thomas Jefferson
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks…will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered…. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs. – Thomas Jefferson in the debate over the Re-charter of the Bank Bill (1809)
If congress has the right under the Constitution to issue paper money, it was given them to use themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations. – Andrew Jackson
The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. By the adoption of these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity. – Abraham Lincoln
Years later, reflecting on the major banks’ control in Washington, President Franklin Roosevelt paid this indirect praise to his distant predecessor President Andrew Jackson, who had “killed” the 2nd Bank of the US (an earlier type of the Federal Reserve System). After Jackson’s administration the bankers’ influence was gradually restored and increased, culminating in the passage of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. Roosevelt knew this history.
The real truth of the matter is,as you and I know, that a financial
element in the large centers has owned the government ever since
the days of Andrew Jackson… –Franklin D. Roosevelt
(in a letter to Colonel House, dated November 21, 1933)
When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes… Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.” – Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of France, 1815
“The death of Lincoln was a disaster for Christendom. There was no man in the United States great enough to wear his boots and the bankers went anew to grab the riches. I fear that foreign bankers with their craftiness and tortuous tricks will entirely control the exuberant riches of America and use it to systematically corrupt civilization.” Otto von Bismark (1815-1898), German Chancellor, after the Lincoln assassination
“Money plays the largest part in determining the course of history.” Karl Marx writing in the Communist Manifesto (1848).
“I am afraid the ordinary citizen will not like to be told that the banks can and do create money. And they who control the credit of the nation direct the policy of Governments and hold in the hollow of their hand the destiny of the people.” Reginald McKenna, as Chairman of the Midland Bank, addressing stockholders in 1924.
“The banks do create money. They have been doing it for a long time, but they didn’t realise it, and they did not admit it. Very few did. You will find it in all sorts of documents, financial textbooks, etc. But in the intervening years, and we must be perfectly frank about these things, there has been a development of thought, until today I doubt very much whether you would get many prominent bankers to attempt to deny that banks create it.” H W White, Chairman of the Associated Banks of New Zealand, to the New Zealand Monetary Commission, 1955.
“This Act [the Federal Reserve Act, Dec. 23rd 1913] establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President [Woodrow Wilson] signs the Bill, the invisible government of the Monetary Power will be legalized … The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency Bill.”
– Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh (R-MN), Sr.
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”
– Woodrow Wilson 1916
“Every effort has been made by the Federal Reserve Board to conceal its power. But the truth is, the Federal Reserve Board has usurped the government of the United States. It controls everything here; and it controls our foreign relations. It makes or breaks governments at will. No man, and no body of men, is more entrenched in power than the arrogant credit monopoly which operates the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks. These evildoers have robbed this country of more than enough money to pay the national debt. ….. Faithless government officers who have violated their oaths of office should be impeached and brought to trial.”
– Congressman Louis T. McFadden before the House of Representatives, in the midst of the Great Depression, 1932.
“It is well enough that the people of this nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”
– Automaker Henry Ford, during the Great Depression.
“Money is the god of our time, and Rothschild is his prophet,” –Heinrich Heine, German poet.
“Money is a new form of slavery, and distinguishable from the old simply by the fact that it is impersonal – that there is no human relation between master and slave.” Leo Tolstoy, Russian writer.
“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is, perhaps, the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and un-mint the modern ledger-entry currency.” Major L L B Angus.
“The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it. The process by which banks create money is so simple the mind is repelled. With something so important, a deeper mystery seems only decent.” John Kenneth Galbraith (1908- ), former professor of economics at Harvard, writing in ‘Money: Whence it came, where it went’ (1975).
As Nicolas Trist – secretary to President Andrew Jackson – said about the incredibly powerful privately owned Second Bank of the United States, “Independently of its misdeeds, the mere power, — the bare existence of such a power, — is a thing irreconcilable with the nature and spirit of our institutions.” (Schlesinger, The Age of Jackson, p.102)
“According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 Trillion in transactions,” Rumsfeld admitted. ($2.3 Trillion — that’s $8,000 for every man, woman and child in America.) September the 10th, 2001
“Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen: …… The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society ……. For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence
— on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.
— President John F. Kennedy (April 27, 1961)
“….. This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence – economic, political, even spiritual – is felt in every city, every Statehouse, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society……
….. In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.”
— President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Farewell address 1961
“The house of Rothschild has arisen from the quarrels between states, has become great and mighty from wars. The misfortune of states and peoples has been its fortune.” –Friedrich Edlen von Scherb
“The Rothschilds are the wonders of modern banking… We see the descendants of Judah, after a persecution of two thousand years, peering above kings, rising higher than emperors, and holding a whole continent in the hollow of their hands. The Rothschilds govern a Christian world. Not a cabinet moves without their advice. They stretch their hand, with equal ease, from Petersburg to Vienna, from Vienna to Paris, from Paris to London, from London to Washington. Baron Rothschild, the head of the house, is the true king of Judah, the prince of the captivity, the Messiah so long looked for by this extraordinary people. He holds the keys of peace or war, blessing or cursing… They are the brokers and counselors of the kings of Europe and of the republican chiefs of America. What more can they desire?” –Niles Weekly Register, 1835-1836
In part one of the book The True Story of the Bilderberg Group, it states three quotes that will explain what the Bilderberg Group secrecy is all about.
The Times of London in 1977 called the Bilderbergers “a clique of the richest, economically and politically most powerful and influential men in the Western world, who meet secretly to plan events that later appear just to happen.”
“It is difficult to re-educate people who have been brought up on nationalism to the idea of relinquishing part of their sovereignty to a supranational body.” -Bilderberg Group founder Prince Bernhard of The Netherlands (The late prince has been replaced by his daughter, Queen Beatrix, who regularly attends the Bilderberg meetings.)
Former British Defense Minister Denis Healey, put it this way, “World events do not occur by accident. They are made to happen, whether it is to do with national issues or commerce; and most of them are staged and managed by those who hold the purse strings.”
Every US president since Eisenhower has either belonged to the Bilderberg Group or its older parallel group, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), or been approved by them. As Estulin wrote, the race is no contest when you own both horses. That is why no matter which political party is in power nothing really changes other than the packaging. The puppets who drink at the champagne fountains of the powerful do the bidding of their masters. The people are superfluous to the process.
