I've been thinking that the true rulers globally, are the Bilderbergs. Just the title alone ( if you've done your reading ) suggests that they are the elite of the elite.


Bilderberg Group ORGANIZATION Founded in 1954, the Bilderberg Group holds "by invitation only" annual meetings of the rich and powerful. About two-thirds of the attendees are European, the rest American. Informally named for the site of the group's first meeting, the Hotel de Bilderberg in Oosterbeek, Netherlands. Founding Date:

I would quite like the truth.

Which of the many theories do you offer?


Uhh... come again?

I thought you were claiming to know the truth and was interested what you had to say.

I was also joking about the many conspiracy theories there are as to who really rules the world.

The truth is out there somewhere but there is so much disinformation out there it is hard to know the real truth.

The Devil runs the world via religion, banking, politics, education and media. He's got his children (call them aliens if you wish) throughout all of society, sabotaging slandering and generally trouble making. We've all met them.

I personally think its not one group of people....

bankers control our money
politicians control our freedoms
media controls our minds


I forgot the Media.

According to the U.S. Congressional Record February 9, 1917, page 2947 J. P. Morgan asked experts to pick out what newspapers he needed to own to control generally the policy of the daily press in the United States....

He bought out the 25% indicated.

And today it hasn't changed:


JP Morgan: Our next big media player?
If U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Carey today approves Tribune Co.'s reorganization plan, enabling it to emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, New York-based banking giant JP Morgan Chase will become a significant media player, owning more television stations than any major network and becoming America's second largest newspaper publisher.

JP Morgan Chase was one of Sam Zell's leading banks, helping fund the real estate baron's $8.2 billion buyout in December 2007 to take Chicago-based Tribune from a publicly held company to one that's private....

If it takes control of Tribune today, JP Morgan will now oversee 54 U.S. daily newspapers, the largest being the Los Angeles Times, making it the country's second largest daily newspaper publisher after Gannett.

JP Morgan will also own 31 television stations, surpassing the number of TV stations owned by CBS and News Corp....





The media is basically dominated by five major companies they are:
Time Warner
VIACOM
Vivendi Universal
Walt Disney
News Corp
Those 5 companies own 95% of all the media that we get every day. They own the major entertainment theme parks, entertainment movie studios, television and radio broadcast networks and programing, video news and sports entertainment.

You did not mention this but here is another goody:

New York Times: LEVERAGED BUYOUTS: AMERICAN PAYS THE PRICE January 29, 1989

"....These days, corporations seem to exist for the investment bankers.... In fact, investment banks are replacing the publicly held industrial corporations as the largest and most powerful economic institutions in America....

THERE ARE SIGNS THAT A VICIOUS spiral has begun, as each corporate player seeks to improve its standard of living at the expense of another's. Corporate raiders transfer to themselves, and other shareholders, part of the income of employees by forcing the latter to agree to lower wages.

Most to gain from what though?

The near destruction of humanity? (I mentioned this as their only option in an earlier post)

If you mean that then you mean the finanicially elite. Those whose wealth and power transcends national boundaries and whose goal is secure a one world government. Specifically as someone mentioned earlier (possibly yourself) the people who own the International Banks. Who are, and correct me if I am wrong, supposedly the 13 bloodline families of the Illuminati at the head of which is the council of 7. It said that these 7 people are they who control the world.

As I have stated in earlier posts I have not concluded if any theory is correct I am merely trying to find out about as much as I can in order to develop the biggest clearest picture I can. There is so much disinfo it can be hard to believe in anything.

One of my favourite quotes however is:

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincare

Can anyone tell me how I can add that to my signature I am being a dunce.

How about someone clarify what they mean by "runs the world"? If there was any kind of small group in control, don't you think there would be a lot less problems??

How many people do you think are in this "group" that runs the world?????

I put on my tinfoil hat and came up with this theory as to WHY things have happened in the last forty years. That is why the elite are moving out of the EU, Astralia, Canada and the USA. The Ultimate Conspiracy Theory!

There were different factions at work before, during and after WW1 and WW2.

At the start of WW1 the British Empire held most of the cards, by the end of it the United States and its Federal Reserve were sitting pretty.

The BIS was set up after the war to facilitate war reparations, the reparations in turn were used to pay debts to the US/ Federal Reserve.

World War 2 broke the British Empire and Europe. Roosevelt and the American Banks had the entire world at their feet. The BIS was supposed to be liquidated and its assets to become part of Bretton Woods which was dominated by the IMF and World Bank Group.

Roosevelt died though and Truman suspended liquidation of the BIS due to British influence.

The BIS sat in the background while Bretton Woods dominated until 1971, when Nixon killed Bretton Woods. Nixon accomplished what Kennedy failed to do, which was weaken the Federal Reserve.

Shortly afterwards, the BIS was instrumental in setting up the foundations for the Euro.

With the fall of the Soviet Union 1991, another faction was eliminated from the table.
The US Federal Reserve finally took its seat, after 64 years, at the Board of the BIS in 1994.

By the 2000s, the BIS had come to dominate what was left of Bretton Woods, like the IMF and World Bank.
The economic crisis that began in 2008 gave even greater power to the BIS. The G-20 began to supplant the United Nations and in 2009, the BIS set up the Financial Stability Board which essentially oversaw the G-20. They are also pushing for the end of the US dollar as the global reserve currency, which would be replaced by Special Drawing Rights. The BIS itself stopped using the Gold Franc in 2003 replacing it with SDRs.

There is one significant faction still outside the direct influence of the BIS. The Islamic world, which doesn't allow ursury. This creates friction between the Islamic central banks and the BIS. They and North Korea are the last of the factions resisting the BIS.

When North Korea and the Islamic world falls, for good or bad, their domination will be complete.

The alledged group of people of steer world events in their favour. For instance by instigating wars and then financing both sides making a literal killing. Crippling the countries involved in the wars and using the situation to then further agenda.

That kind of thing...

First think Pyramid - only the top point is relevant. Notice how the capstone is separated from many pyramids you see?

Protoplasmictraveler has pointed out the top of the pyramid has but 8 people who are in charge - they are on the earth plane.

The eight answer to the unseen, not on the earth plane - the separated capstone. Who they are is not relevant, but they are not physical.

You will never meet any of them and you will not influence any of them. The unseen are beyond nearly everyone's ability to comprehend at all, the eight are simply hidden from all and will never reveal themselves.

Everyone below the top is middle management. Everyone. They are all subject to dismissal at anytime, for any reason. The names you know, the groups you have heard about, are not in charge, they are implementors of policy handed to them.

The middle management are the ones with ego, believing they are powerful but one fact remains - the have sold out their own people for power and cannot be trusted, as such they are the first to go in any change.

When the Old pre- war influence of the noble families, had to make way for "democraty" they fled into the diplomatic world.. and there they still are.

Diplomats:
- Do not get choosen, appointed.
- Do not bare responsibility ( The "government" does)
- Do not have airport control
- Have ALL expensive paid jobs, houses and living ( Salaries can just go untouched on a bankaccount eeh strike that, gold bars;-)
- Have immunity against almost any kind of prosecution
- Whisper in and listen out of every place on earth
- Most are not publicly known
- Have Major influence on policies
- Operates in a silenced world (before Wiki leaks ;-)
- etc.

It may not be all the power, and not always be united, but they do have a great worldwide network and influence.
