Fox News: The Illuminati


www.foxnews.com

They are said to be behind everything from the French and American revolutions, to the rise of socialism and communism, to the symbols on the US dollar. They are furtive formidable and undeniably fascinating. Arguably the most mysterious organization in modern history. What do they call themselves? The Illuminati. The secret society plays a starring role in the new movie based on Dan Brown's best seller "Angels and Demons".

I was taken back, that Hannity of all sheeple herders would objectively cover this subject in a very documentary-like approach/style, with what appears to be integrity. Though it is initiated by plugging the movie "Angels and Demons", overall i thought the segment was well done and even impressive when you consider the source.



Though when recognizing that Murdoch is the Wiz of Oz behind Fox News, and Hannity's cheerleading record for the past ten years, i can't help but think that the light, positive and respectful spin given is part of the current broader collective NWO PR campaign.

It figures that Sean Hannity would be the one talking about the illuminati.

My personal opinion as they see themselves as illuminating the world and it’s people forward in a slow Darwinian struggle from primal fears, emotions and impulses towards a logically ordered civilization where science and precision thinking create a level of productivity and cooperation that allows for human beings to see their true potential in the universe.

While many would point to their seemingly endless criminal undertakings, cruel and deceitful manipulations and the excessive wealth such self described characters perpetrate and then amass, I have a sneaking suspicion that they might claim either falsely or truthfully they only do so to expose people again and again to such cruelties and emotionally insightful things in a process of teaching people to abandon their penchant for cruel responses born of emotion and rarely a complete logic or understanding of that which effects their emotions so sharply and leads to negative and destructive reactions.

Some see them as a super class of criminal.
Some see them as a super class of teachers exploiting humanities own vagaries and vanities for seemingly their own gain, yet to teach the pupils a harsh lesson.

As with most things in life the truth likely lies somewhere in between and the light they are trying to shine is on the truth of all things, by encouraging people to suffer to learn to not simply embrace the lies of all things, because it is convenient, because it is easy, because everyone else seems to do it, and because it creates some primal emotional satisfaction in them to exert dominance even though in their position of embraced ignorance all they can to is dominate the path to their own worst nightmares and demise.

Heroes or villains as always history will decide, but more and more this elitist class of people are making their presence known and shining light on to things that most people would prefer not to contemplate or look at or accept as the truth to the underlying realities that bind us all together on a war torn, disease ridden, impoverished planet where humankind has learned in part how to subvert natures own balance and impose their own on an ecosystem, planet and universe that they are in but their mere infancy of just beginning to understand.

It’s like an angry or frustrated and disappointed parent or teacher might tell an errant pupil. You can learn the hard way or you can learn the easy way.

Humans by and large love learning the hard way. It creates a hard life, and it could be that the illuminists are trying to shed light on that in their own way.

In my own humble oppinion the illuminists are in control, but they are in control by default, humans want to cling to their illussions and avoid the responsibility of sometimes dealing with a much more difficult reality.

You create such interesting threads lately. S&F.

I honestly don’t see why people are associating the Illuminati with this movie. Yes it plays a role in the film, but a lot of people are going to be disappointed when they see it. The Illuminati that we discuss on ATS is not a dominating figure in the book, it’s a different interpretation with a twist at the end that was kind of annoying. Not sure if the film is the same though, though I’m sure it is I haven’t seen it yet.

Based on the trailer, it looks like the writers of the film put the Illuminati at center stage:



...and here's Howard, Hanks & McGregor disclosing how central the Illuminati is to the plot:

Well, I hope it’s not as disappointing as the book. The book in general was good, but I have a feeling the film will leave a lot of people with the same disappointment, if it’s true to the book.

In the end, I’m just glad to see the media and Hollywood discussing the Illuminati.

Sigh, sometimes I honestly feel this forum is doomed.

NOONE Can see the MSM's slant on everything. How can people be so blind? Honestly please check out my threads and learn more.

This is not a SUPPORT piece, exposing the illuminati, the first guy they have on to comment completely throws the entire concept into the fire. The average viewer who knows nothing about the illumanati is going to watch this segment, and leave with the belief that its all a load of bull, and not actually reality. Furthermore, when people bring it up it will be referred to "oh that's just in the movies... remember angels and demons?".

How anyone watches this and sees it as "Fox news being open minded" and supporting alternate views is out of there flipping mind. It is terribly disheartening that the influence of MSM does not just affect sheeple, or average users of this forum but also admins and mods. And it's sick.

QUIT WATCHING FOX, CNN, CBS, MSNBC, NBC, ALL MAINSTREAM NEWS AND INTERPRETING WHAT THEY SAY AS FACT. IF YOU CANNOT TELL BETWEEN FULL ON PROPAGANDA AND REALITY, DON'T BOTHER TO TURN THE TV ON OR ELSE YOUR HOOOOOPED!

But hopefully it will intrigue some people. There's a lot of people who don't know anything about this conspiracy theory, there's a lot of people who don't know that communities like ATS exist. I'd rather see it mentioned then having it quietly escaping everyone's attention.

I certainly didn't see it that way, so I wouldn't assume that everyone who was glad to see this on TV felt that way.

Be careful..., MSM is notoriously purposeful in there timing of such media pieces.

I suspect the culprit is the 'entertainment' angle.

I believe that marketeers are attempting to realize a surge in a small, but persistent audience for all thing conspiratorial.

It reaps profit, and after all, isn't THAT what it's all about?

I wouldn't go looking for fundamental facts in the book, nor would I ever expect anything approaching 'revealing' from the Hollywood/Madison Avenue collaborations....

It is interesting how level Sean Hannity was about this. And that quote from Washington and the one from the former SCOTUS Justice were very interesting, I'd never heard them before(I know I know, bad conspiracy boy.) Why is FOX news doing this?

I never understood why people think the Illuminati was behind larger government when they were essentially anarchists and anti-government...

Maybe because our current society is looking more and more like the one they were striving to create?

Also, they were not anarchist, many of them were progressive politicians.

FOX in my humble oppinion represents one side of the coin while CNN represent another in a divide and conquer strategy of war.

If a New World Order conspiracy exists it's greatest threat is a United States united in it's resistence to it.

You divide. You let the divisions attack one another and weaken one another. You create divisions amongst the divisions. You keep your enemy fighting amongst itself and tearing itself apart, and constantly weakening and destroying itself until it is weak enough to no longer pose a threat to your existence and plan, which you have been gradually and steadily increasingly exposing people to, so when the time comes they have some vague idea to who and what they are submitting to.

The total and still worsening of the economy, the election of the Nation's first Black President, the rising tensions amongst the world's 3 most populace and competing and warring religious sects, the open and blatant corruption of the body politic and it's insane rewards to the even more corrupt corporations at the citizen's expense, and a skillful media always looking to exploit the differences between left and right, black and white, poor and rich, young and old, Christian, Jew, Muslim and Athiest are all clearly aimed at inciting America to explode into a sea of competing agendas, doctrines and phillosophies in a rash and likely violent attempt for one to seize dominance at the other's expense.

A people poor enough, angry enough, and with little to loose, simply need to be served up villians that their own unique idealogy sees the villany in simply because it stands in such stark contrast to their own.

Illuminating these stark differences and exploiting them and punishing them through that exploitation is what the Illuminati and New World Order do.

You need a voice that seems official and credible that can make one of the each sides feel that it is speaking just to them, and validating what they think and believe and in the process empowering them to act more forcefully and more often to champion those ideals and thoughts.

Rome offers you peace or war, the choice is yours and Rome cares not which you decide. The Illuminists know that people will choose for war again and again and again, they simply have to show the people reasons to fight and exploit them.

That is the medias job. To break people in to camps, to report on that camps virtues, to report on the other camps villiany, to enflame their passions, to incite anger, because angry people rarely make rational decisions.

The real conspiracy is people simply don't want to stop doing that. They choose war.

Turn off the TV Set and choose peace, a good book, an intelectually stimulating conversation, or a moment to appreciate nature's still ever abundant beauty and focus more on the ever magnificent amount of natural wealth at all our disposals to enjoy.

The Illuminists are in fact the people who illuminate your TV, Computer, Palm Pilot, Lap Top, and Cell Phone Screens.

In the old days they made the most beautifully hand written and illustrated Bibles, the Getty Museum in Malibu has a great collection of them. They are amazing works of art.

War is an art, and it's all about divide and conquer.

I agree, and if they do exist they are doing a fine job of this. They’ve definitely gotten under our skin with religion and politics. The division is a marvelous distraction.

I'm glad to see the media actually talking about something besides the usual hollywood crap, or their own political belief, I guess for once fox was fair and balanced on a subject, that most networks would never even bring up

I find it very interesting that FOX news is coming out with all of this now. They were so silent during the Bush years, always defending everything done during that time. Nothing has changed, so why are they doing what they are doing now? What is behind it all, what are the reasons?

It's unfortunate that MSM can't investigate things like The Illuminati off their own bat and in a serious journalistic way, rather than have to link it up to fantasy land Hollywood.

It really just makes it look kooky, fringy and sci fi.

And we all know how serious the topic really is.
Too bad no one else is going to see it that way.

I believe that since it is now pretty much universally accepted that FOX news is a laughing stock, they have become free to cover "alternative news". It brings in the ratings and will simply be discredited because it was shown on FOX, even if it is truthful
