Madrid-based investigative researcher Daniel Estulin, author of â€œThe True Story of the Bilderberg Group,â€ writes that a New World Order and the globalists behind it is not conspiracy theory but rather conspiracy reality. Thus he contends that people ought to inform themselves about the Bilderbergers because behind each and every Bilderberg meeting is the furtherance of an agenda, "to create what they themselves call the aristocracy of purpose between European and North American elites on the best way to manage the planet.â€ (Bilderberg is 'a conspiracy reality,' Kevin Deanna, WND)
The Bilderberg is a 'by invitation only' club of around 140 very high-power people from business, finance, oil, politics, media, industry, academia and nobility. Though very high up on the Pyramid, Bilderberg is not the Global Eliteâ€™s power center but rather a key group within a much more vast, more complex, interlocking yet less centralized, and,
"....highly effective Global Power Network, where they interact and overlap with other organizations, clubs, lobbies and groups, all having common economic, financial, social and (geo)political objectives in the Globalist Agenda." (Bilderberg power masters meet in the US
The network includes such key entities as the occult spiritual Temple of Understanding, Lucis Trust (formerly Lucifer Publishing) and Cathedral of St. John the Divine, home of the Gaia Institute, as well as,
"...New York-based Council on Foreign Relations (long-term geopolitical planners), its London-based sister entity Royal Institute of International Affairs (aka â€œChatham Houseâ€), RAND Corp., CSIS, the American Enterprise Institute (strategic affairs specialists), Tavistock Institute in London (mass psychology research), the Carnegie Endowment, and the Trilateral Commission â€œumbrellaâ€ entity (founded 1973 by Rockefeller / Morgan / Rothschild interests, geared to coordinating the Americas, Europe and the East). These so-called â€œThink Tanksâ€ in turn interact with consultancies like Kissinger Associates, The Carlyle Group (specializing in oil strategies and having the Bush, Bin Laden and Baker families as key shareholders), or Trilateralist Claus Schwabâ€™s World Economic Forum." (ibid)
Last yearâ€™s attendee list is a Whoâ€™s Who of banking, industrial and media CEO top brass,
" Deutsche Bank, HSBC, CitiCorp, European Central Bank, US Federal Reserve Bank, Lazard FrÃ¨res, JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Barclays, World Bank, Bank of Canada, AXA, Royal Dutch Shell, BP, Fiat, Nestle, Novartis, Coca-Cola, Airbus, Eni, Telecom Italy, ExxonMobil, Alcoa, Marks & Spencer, Die Zeit, The Economist." (ibid)
Today's interlocking global network got its start over two hundred years ago with Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Masonic Order of the Illuminati. John T. Robison, Secretary General to Scotland's Royal Society and professor of natural philosophy at the University of Edinburgh disclosed its existence in his book, "Proofs of a Conspiracy" (1797). Though a high-degree Mason, Robison was alarmed by his discovery that Weishaupts' 'elite group of Illuminists' had penetrated the lodges.
Weishaupts' plan was to unseat the existing hereditary aristocracy and replace them with an Illumined aristocracy that was outwardly advertized as being on the side of workers.
Weishaupt was in league with powerful occult initiates, and said Robison, the true purpose of the Illuminati was global hegemony; a socialist world order ruled by an occult elite who had penetrated every aspect of society from arts and religion to politics and law while shaping public opinion with more subtlety than the average citizen was able to detect.
By 1798 the Illuminati had arrived in America, and though George Washington was a Mason, like Robison he feared the Order of the Illuminati. He wrote:
"It is not my intention to doubt that the doctrine of the Illuminati and the principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more satisfied of this fact than I am." (One World, Tal Brooke, p. 224)
In our time the network has grown into a global leviathan, and according to Harvard and Princeton professor emeritus Carroll Quigley, who confessed to being an insider and confidant of the network, global 'elites' are poised to seize control of the world.
In his opus, "Tragedy and Hope," Quigley deliberately reveals one of the worlds' best kept secrets---the existence of a gigantic leviathan of political, economic, and religious power poised to seize control of the planet. Another secret----banking dynasties are the Global Eliteâ€™s power center, the ultimate power masters who manipulate world events behind the scenes:
"I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records....Their aim is 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. The system was to be controlled in a feudalistic fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert..." (ibid, p. 226)
Cleon Skoussen lists forty-five of the networks goals for America, most of which havve been accomplished:
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

Why did Quigley expose the existence of the global financial coterie? Because he says, it is now too late for the little people to turn the tide. He urges them to not fight the noose which is already around their necks, for they will only hang themselves:
"On the other hand, those who go along with the immense pressure which is beginning to be felt by all humanity will eventually find themselves in a man-made millennium of peace and prosperity." (The Naked Capitalist, Skousen, pp. 4-6)

The banking houses owned by the great family dynasties are also the banks behind the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and America's central bank, the Federal Reserve.
Tal Brooke provides a list of the banking houses that currently have men in the CFR:
Kuhn, Loeb & Co., Lazard Freres (directly affiliated with the Rothschild dynasty), Dillon Read; Lehman Bros.; Goldman Sachs; Chase Manhatten; Morgan Guaranty Bank; Brown Bros. Harriman; First National City Bank; Chemical Bank & Trust; and Manufacturers Hanover Trust.
Brooke adds that the CFR is also,
"totally interlocked with the major foundations (Rockefeller,Ford, Carnegie) and the so-called think tanks (Rand, Hudson Business, Brookings Institute)." (p. 236)
To an atheist materialist, the idea of a long range plan to seize control of the world makes no sense, given that he has but one life. It is the spiritual dimension that is the key that unlocks the puzzle. The dynastic families are not atheist materialists, rather they are Eastern-oriented pantheists, some of them deep into the occult. They are the Enlightened ones, the Illuminists.
In his classic work, â€œNew World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies,â€ William Still writes that Illuminist philosophies are Luciferian. Illuminism, said William Still, is the Luciferian religion that teaches that man,
â€œâ€¦can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself.â€ (Still, p. 27)
Illuminism fosters revolution and chaos, said Still. Its tenets are summarized in the following five points:
1. Abolition of all ordered governments and national boundaries 2. Abolition of private property and inheritances 3. Abolition of patriotism and nationalism 4. Abolition of family life and the institution of marriage, and the establishment of cradle-to-grave state-controlled communal education 5. Abolition of all religion with particular emphasis upon orthodox Christianity and faithful Judaism
Still reveals that Communism and Fascism have their origins in Luciferian Illuminism and Orthodox Christian Russia was the first testing ground. Now it is our turn, for with the implosion of America the rest of the world's nations will fall into their hands, or so Illuminists believe.
The Book of Revelation foretells a great falling away, an apostasy so vast that the inhabitants of the earth reject God and wittingly or unwittingly embrace Luciferianism. Preparing the way are the global corporatists and banking families---the kings of this earth--who are depicted as worshipping the Dragon, the one they call Lucifer who is in fact the Devil. When the Devil-empowered Beast arrives the power elite "being of one mind" (conspiracy that is not a theory but a reality) throw their collossal fortunes and power at his feet,
"These (kings) have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast." Rev. 17: 13
In the end, the deceivers who have been deceiving everyone turn out to be the most deceived of all.
