Sorry guys, this thread puzzles me.
I see some facts about Liechtenstein which are true, but I do not see anything "secret", "conspiracy related" or elitist at all.

I have been digging deeper and deeper (for years now) into the history of European and global finance when I discovered that Liechtenstein, a tiny German-speaking country nestled in the Alps, is a tax haven. The nation's banks operate similarly to some of the better-known Swiss banks, providing a secret storehouse for gobs of wealth for the global elite.
Hitler and the Nazis cancelled their plan to invade Liechtenstein after Hitler's astronomer saw a "change in the stars."
Sure, the alpine landscape of Liechtenstein would be somewhat of a logistical nightmare to invade and many historians would have you believe that Liechtenstein had nothing to offer the Nazi regime. However...
"Snow-bearded, 84-year-old Prince Franz Paul I, ruler of the 65-square-mile principality of Liechtenstein... has not visited his tiny nation for five years. He has run his Government by long-distance from Vienna and his Czechoslovakian estates... His wife, whom he married in 1929, is a wealthy Viennese Jewess and local Liechtenstein Nazis have already singled her out as their anti-Semitic 'problem.'"
Liechtenstein shares a national anthem with the UK and the historical anthem of the US.
The Prince of Wales' motto is "Ich Dien," German for "I Serve". Why British royalty would have a motto in German and not English or at least Latin is curious, to say the least.
Nationalism is certainly a very important thing to rulers, and Germany is a centuries-old competitor to British Imperialism. Using the language of a competitor as a royal motto would be...in poor taste.
Here you can see Prince Alois of Liechtenstein stumbling through the English language.
The Princely House of Liechtenstein has held monarchical rulership in Europe since at least 1140AD
According to www.celebritynetworth.com (surprisingly reliable, yet tends to align with mainstream numbers), Prince Alois is worth $3.5 billion...
"EU's relations with Liechtenstein are based on the EEA (European Economic Area) Agreement, and there are very few issues that are not covered by this Agreement. However, Liechtenstein also has a customs and monetary union with Switzerland since 1924 and is strongly integrated in the Swiss economy in addition to its participation in the European Economic Area. In addition to the EEA Agreement, the EU has bilateral agreements with Liechtenstein on subjects such as taxation of savings . Liechtenstein will also be part of the Schengen/Dublin co-operation. Negotiations on EU-Liechtenstein co-operation on combating fraud and exchange of information on tax matters are expected to be concluded in the near future."
Europe's dirty little secret: Where dictators, crooks and British tax dodgers hide their billions
The cows seemed remarkably relaxed, even for animals free to roam lush, breathtaking Alpine pastures.
After rumours emerged about their strange behaviour, the Prince of Liechtenstein ordered official investigators to fan out across the mountains and inspect the country's dairy herds.
They returned with bad news: his farmers were feeding their cattle with cannabis.
Horrified, Prince Alois acted swiftly. Television crews from all over Europe were descending on the tiny Principality, nestling between Austria and Switzerland and the glare of publicity was the worst thing imaginable for its many investors who include some of the wealthiest - and most reclusive - individuals in the world.
They come to Liechtenstein to deposit vast amounts of cash. With the strictest financial confidentiality laws anywhere on the planet, this tiny country of just 35,000 people has become the place for the wealthy to bank.
For years, Germany, Britain and America had been trying to "crack open" Liechtenstein's secretive banking system. As a haven for Nazi gold during World War II, Liechtenstein had refused to hand over any of the money until another whistle-blower revealed documents proving that millions was being held here.
Jewish Holocaust survivors finally got back their money less than ten years ago and

I have real doubts about the validity of a story that has Hitler cancelling his plans to invade Liechtenstein because "the stars had changed,"
It is more likely, as Dotan goes on to explain that some lower-ranking war planners had worked out an invasion plan for Liechtenstein (should it be needed), but then word came from those in the know that one does NOT invade Liechtenstein -- implying that it had a special protected status. Woe to those who mess with Liechtenstein.
I found this very interesting. Since his wife is Jewish that means that their children are automatically considered Jewish (matrilineal). Dotan also mentioned the House of Liechtenstein connected to the Black Nobility of Europe (rumored to be Jewish in origin). The Black Nobility are supposed to comprise the "Inner Court" of the Global Elite.
Interesting coincidence? Britain's national anthem "God Save the Queen" has the same tune as the American "My Country, Tis of Thee" -- when did Liechtenstein adopt this tune for their national anthem?
The British royal family has been VERY German since 1714, when the House of Hanover (Braunschweig-Lunesburg) took over the British throne. The House of Hanover provided five British kings and one queen, Queen Victoria. Then Victoria married her German cousin, Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. This was transformed into the House of Windsor during WWI.
Dotan points out how this timing coincided with the Crusades -- the Knights of Jerusalem, the Teutonic Knights and the Knights Templar. On "Uncommon Knowledge" the interviewer points out that the principality was created by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI and Pope Benedict XVI in 1719, five years after Queen Anne died and the British throne was taken over by the House of Hanover.
