This has to be pretty old if he mentions Hank Paulson.
If you recall , Old vote for the Bailout or face Martial Law Hank Paulson was Bush Jr's (Dubya's) Treasury Secretary and former Goldman Sachs CEO.
He also was the one who strong armed the senate & the house of representatives into approving the bank bailouts.
Goldman Sachs is essentially the NY Branch and main shareholders/owner of the FED.
Anyone in the Financial circles is well aware of the Illuminati's role in the current banking cabal here in the US and Europe which is where it all
The fact that this interviewee mentioned the word, and not necessarily an MSNBC employee/journalist/anchor puts an entirely different spin on this
It is known that these elitist organizations exist and it's similar to when Dubya was questioned about his allegiance to the secret society , Skull
and Bones ....and his famous reply being, "...I can't tell you, its a secret ".
Here's an exerpt from an 2007 article by Heny Makow PhD on Benjamin Fulford on Rense.com pertaining to the Iluminati. Its a good intro to the
controlling elite. :
"First the Illuminati are really inbred families of European and North American traditional aristocracy and banking families. They control the U.S.,
England, Europe (except for Scandinavian countries, Germany and Italy; Italy kicked them out in the 1970's),Japan, Africa, Iran, Canada and Mexico.
They do not control China, Russia (Putin kicked them out for the first time since 1917), India, South East Asia, South America, Cuba etc.
"Their goal is to create a world government. Until 2 years ago the plan was the New World Order. That was outlined pretty clearly in the Project for
a New American Century. However, with the debacle in Iraq, the secret government of the West changed to a new plan that is a world government based on
the EU. To do this they will sabotage the U.S. economy.
"However, there is a big schism in the secret government. Jay Rockefeller and Philip Rothschild support one faction, the Global Warming Faction.
Opposing them is the War on Terrorism Faction supported by David Rockefeller and the JP Morgan descendants (Bush, Harriman, Walker etc.). The warming
people want to sell 500 nuclear power plants to China and a similar amount to the rest of the world. The terrorism guys want to keep U.S. dominance by
maintaining control over oil. Putin was a huge setback for them.
"They are also neo-Nazis who want to reduce the amount of colored people in the world by at least half through disease, starvation and war. The
Chinese secret society got wind of this and is preparing to stop them."
