I am aware of the Bilderbergers, Skull & Bones, Club of Rome, CFR, TLC, Bohemian Grove, etc.!!
Please stop trying to 'educate' me with writings from obviously biased people. I keep bringing up Beck because I know you adore him and you once admonished me to "read his book", which I refused to do. Alex Jones is another one who I tried to take seriously, but quickly by fact-checking and looking at opposing views decided he was likewise not worth paying attention to.
You are following 'extremist' thinking and I am tired of you shoving them at me. I know how to research and investigate things, ThirdEye. I know how to read something, then look at critiques of it, supporters of it, and follow off-shoots. I know how to use the internet, how to assess information. I'm learning every day, and it's clear that my stance is fluid in how I assess what's out there.
None of us know 'the whole story', and while I understand this is a conspiracy-theory website, NOT EVERYTHING is a conspiracy. Yes, I do spend time looking at the issues and reading both the 'conspiracy!' and 'no conspiracy' and I understand that the truth is somewhere in between.
Some people I have given a chance, and then dismissed. Others I have discovered, followed for a time, and come to respect if not 'trust'. Because WE DON'T KNOW.
We don't really REALLY know who the shadow government are, and most analysts agree that even the actors in it don't actually know who is at the helm. THAT is what worries me

Scahill was outraged over the administration’s secrecy surrounding its national security operations, particularly drone strikes. Smiley asked him why the administration has not been more forthcoming about its use of drones, and Scahill partially blamed congressional Republicans:
He discusses the left’s disregard of their anti-war principles in favor of being loyal to leaders in their own party and the war propaganda that is fed to Americans through mass media.
MoveOn comprises two legal entities, each organized under a different section of U.S. tax and election laws. MoveOn.org Civic Action is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit corporation, and was formerly known as MoveOn.org. MoveOn Civic Action focuses on education and advocacy on national issues. MoveOn.org Political Action is a federal political action committee, and was formerly known as MoveOn PAC. It contributes to the campaigns of many candidates across the country. MoveOn calls the legal structure of MoveOn Civic Action that of "a California nonprofit public benefit corporation" and MoveOn.org Political Action that of "a California nonprofit mutual benefit corporation," and refers to both corporations collectively as "MoveOn".
While the number of conservative groups persecuted by the IRS increases, let’s reflect back on how the IRS allowed a 501(c)(3) sponsor to allow Occupy Wall Street — the violent, vandalizing, rapetastic movement which resulted in property damage but no policy change — to accept tax deductible donations.
That much had been in the news. One crucial piece of information had not. "We knew that a no-fly zone would not save the people of Benghazi," says Obama. "The no-fly zone was an expression of concern that didn't really do anything." European leaders wanted to create a no-fly zone to stop Qaddafi, but Qaddafi wasn't flying. His army was racing across the North African desert in jeeps and tanks. Obama had to have wondered just how aware of this were these foreign leaders supposedly interested in the fate of these Libyan civilians. He didn't know if they knew that a no-fly zone was pointless, but if they'd talked to any military leader for five minutes they would have.
Scahill is the national security correspondent for The Nation magazine and longtime Democracy Now! correspondent.
Jeremy Scahill is a Puffin Foundation Writing Fellow at The Nation Institute,
Son of former Bill Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal, Max Blumenthal was born in 1977. He received his B.A. in history from the University of Pennsylvania in 1999. He currently works as a Puffin Foundation writing fellow at the Nation Institute, which is funded, in part, by George Soros’ Open Society Institute. He is also a Research Fellow for Media Matters for America. Blumenthal is a regular contributor to The Nation and continues to publish in a number of liberal and leftist journals and magazines, most prominent among them, The Daily Beast, the American Prospect, Salon.com, the Washington Monthly, Alternet, and the Huffington Post. His first book, Republican Gomorrah: Inside the Movement that Shattered the Party (2009), was published by Nation Books.
But serious questions have arisen about how Democracy Now! -- which developed with the resources of Pacifica Radio and grants from the Carnegie Corporation, the Ford Foundation, J.M. Kaplan Fund and others -- suddenly in 2002 became independent and the effective property of Amy Goodman without any recompense to Pacifica. This transfer included valuable assets such as trademarks, ownership of years of archived programs and interviews, affiliate station access and more.
According to a published report in the September Rock Creek Free Press of Washington, D.C., investigative reporter Wayne Madsen says Obama’s mother Ann Dunham worked “on behalf of a number of CIA front operations, including the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Ford Foundation.” The East-West Center had long been affiliated with CIA activities in the Asia-Pacific region, Madsen says.
The unrest in Egypt, of course, was led entirely by ICG member Mohamed ElBaradei and his US State Department recruited, funded, and supported April 6 Youth Movement coordinated by Google’s Wael Ghonim. While the unrest was portrayed as being spontaneous, fueled by the earlier Tunisian uprising, ICG’s ElBaradei, Ghonim, and their youth movement had been in Egypt since 2010 assembling their “National Front for Change” and laying the groundwork for the January 25th 2011 uprising.
ICG’s George Soros would then go on to fund Egyptian NGOs working to rewrite the Egyptian constitution after front-man ElBaradei succeeded in removing Hosni Mubarak. This Soros-funded constitution and the resulting servile stooge government it would create represents the ICG “resolving” the crisis their own ElBaradei helped create.

The reasons for the intense denial about the 9/11/01 attack inside the Left establishment appear to go much deeper than the fact that many of its institutions are funded by endowments like those of the Ford Foundation. The official myth appeals to political philosophies that condemn U.S. imperialism by providing the supreme example of "blowback" -- the proverbial chickens coming home to roost. Researcher August West speaks to this and other psychological underpinnings of the denial.
