Mayer Amschel Rothschild


The Bilderberg group was founded in 1954 by Belgian Prime Minister Paul Van Zeeland, Joseph Retinger, and Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. It is on record as being an exclusive 'think tank' of very powerful and elite individuals from North America and Western Europe. It is believed that in addition to its seemingly innocuous role as an organization that finds solutions to the worlds woes, it is also the supreme policy making group. Not only in the West and Europe, but globally.

Bilderberg is managed by a steering committee of approximately 30 individuals, there is a roster of who these people are on their official website (a very pristine website). The list will take your breath away. It is interesting that there is only one name listed under Member Advisory Group; David Rockefeller. They meet annually and invite 100 of the most powerful men and women of Europe and North America. And for the record, Bilderberg chooses you, you do not choose Bilderberg.

In the early years of Bilderberg, the bulk of the funding came from the Ford Foundation. You will find the Ford name connected to J.D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan and others. However, the one name that even these names bow to is Rothschild.

"Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws." Mayer Amschel Rothschild

The Bible says that whatever is in your heart will come out of your mouth. And this quote shows the utter contempt and disregard that is shown not only to Britain (his homeland) but America as well. The dynasty continues and the attitude remains the same.

It has been said that "the wealth of Rothschild consists of the bankruptcy of nations" - Frederic Morton, The Rothschilds (1962)

"There must certainly be some sociopathic minds behind Bilderberg since they go to so much trouble to promote policies that lead to exploitation, inequality and despair. These individuals seem oddly switched off from the suffering they are clearly causing. Surely only pernicious people would want to control the ideology of the world's mainstream press, and undermine natural political discourse. Public opinion and democratic institutions are a threat when you want to own the world.

The perverse objective of the Bilderberg Steering Group is to dress totalitarian corporate ideology up to appear rational and push it out, unattributable, for mass consumption under Chatham House rules. Meanwhile, outside the Bilder-bubble, 'god-is-money' globalisation is the new religon with the greedy given a pat on the back as they plunder both the earth and a large part of the human spirit." -

Trilateral Commission

The Trilateral Commission is another private organization that, for all intents and purposes, was formed to bring together (once again) North America, Europe and now Asia to address global concerns. Once again the member roster is a staggering who's who list of the world's top power players. According to their official website, they keep a ceiling on membership. One interesting fact; the founder of the Trilateral Commission is David Rockefeller.

Joseph S. Nye, the North American Chairman of the Trilateral Commission is also a leader in Bilderberg. Mario Monti, the European Chairman of the Trilateral Commission is also a Bilderberg member. Yotaro Kobayashi, the Pacific Asian Chairman of the Trilateral Commission is also a Bilderberg member.

The Trilateral Commission was created to be a front for the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). If you look closely, you will find that they have a shared agenda. Follow the Trilateral Commission and it will lead you to the CFR. Try connecting these dots-the same men who created the CFR, also created the Trilateral Commission, and gave us the Federal Reserve.

"In 1913, CFR founding father Colonel House helped pick the charter members of the original Federal Reserve Board." - Canada Free Press

And, once again we were warned...

"When the Democrat base finally realizes that it has been conned again (Bill Clinton and Al Gore were members), perhaps it will unleash a real political revolution that will oust Trilateral politicians, operatives and policies from the shores of our country.

If the reader is a Democrat, be aware that many Republicans and conservatives are still licking their wounds after finally realizing that George Bush and Dick Cheney worked the same con on them for a disastrous eight years of the same policies!" - The August Review, January 29, 2009

"The Trilateral Commission is international and is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. The Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power – political, monetary, intellectual and ecclesiastical." - Barry Goldwater

Commission on Foreign Relations

In his book, Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler , Professor Antony Sutton, author of nineteen books, provides a thoroughly documented account of the role played by Morgan, Rockefeller, General Electric Company, Standard Oil, National City Bank, Chase and Manhattan banks, Kuhn, Loeb and Company, General Motors, Ford, and other industrialists, in helping to finance the Nazis. To prove his point, Professor Sutton provides bank statements, letters from U.S. ambassadors, mainstream media sources, Congressional Records , excerpts from Congressional Investigations, and statements from the Nuremberg trials. Wall Street's funding of the Nazis is part of authentic history.

Professor Sutton wrote that "General Motors, Ford, General Electric, DuPont," and other "U.S. companies intimately involved with the development of Nazi Germany were ... controlled by the Wall Street elite," such as "the J.P. Morgan firm, the Rockefeller Chase Bank and to a lesser extent the Warburg Manhattan bank." - Anthony Sutton

"The deal bringing Hitler into the government was cut at the home of banker Baron Kurt von Schroeder on January 4, 1933," wrote author Marrs. Other notable figures that are said to have appeared at this meeting include Council on Foreign Relations members John Foster Dulles, and Allen Dulles, of the New York law firm Sullivan and Cromwell, which represented the Schroeder bank. Allen Dulles would eventually become a member the Bilderbergers and director of the CIA. - Jim Marrs

What do you know, another 'think' tank. Once again membership is by invitation only. New twist; only Americans can be members. In its history, we find the same names of Rockefeller, Ford and J.P. Morgan as major sources of funding the financially strapped organization.

President of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) Richard Haass, is also a member of the Trilateral Commission. Richard Holbrooke, and Dennis Ross appointed as special CFR Foreign Envoys/ Foreign Policy Advisers are Trilateral Commission members.

" was the calculated 'shearing' of the public by the World-Money powers triggered by the planned sudden shortage of call money in the New York Market." - Curtis Dall, FDR: My Exploited Father-In-Law ( Curtis B. Dall was a syndicate manager for the investment firm, Lehman Brothers and, on the day of the crash, was on the New York Stock Exchange floor.)

And we were still being warned...

"The Central Bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the principles and form of our Constitution...if the American people allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." - Thomas Jefferson

"The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes." - Felix Frankfurter, Justice of the Supreme Court (1939-1962)

"The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson." - President Franklin Roosevelt (In a letter to an associate dated November 21, 1933)

"Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system, another body representing another form of government, a bureaucratic elite which believes our Constitution is outmoded." - Senator William Jenner (warned in a speech February 23, 1954)

The Federal Reserve System, the League of Nations, and the Council on Foreign Relations had both common origins and creators. FYI, the CFR was of British -- not U.S. origin. The umbilical cord to England has never been cut.

And yet another secret society that includes some of the same names. Many of the country's foremost leaders were members of the Skull and Bones Society. I posted a link that gives you the complete roster. Take a look at the positions they held/hold. Cross check names with the other three organizations.


Founding members (1832–1833 academic year)

Frederick Ellsworth Mather (1833), Democratic member of the New York State Assembly (1854–1857)

Phineas Timothy Miller, (1833) American physician

William Huntington Russell (1833), Connecticut State Legislator, Major General

Alphonso Taft (1833), U.S. Attorney General (1876–1877), Secretary of War (1876), Ambassador to Austria-Hungary (1882) and Russia (1884–1885), father of William Howard Taft

George Ingersoll Wood (1833), American clergyman

While S&B does not have the reach of the other three organizations, I thought it important to include it primarily because of its link to the Bush family. Many of their S&B brothers were put into positions of power within the government.

Why I wrote this hub...

I wrote this hub out of pure frustration. Every day I read everywhere about the same things; debt ceiling, taxes, social security, medicare, democrats and republicans. None of it means anything. Yes, you heard me right. It has nothing to do with the world, and I do mean the world, from spinning out of control. If you think it's just America-guess again. If you think it's just recently come about-guess again. If you think it's about the democrats vs. the republicans, you're really not paying attention.

The battle we are in has nothing whatsoever to do with political parties. But we've been made to think so, and have been pitted against one another to keep our focus averted. It keeps us at each other throats, each one trying to put the blame on the other-rather than placing that blame where it should be. Kennedy was the last president we had that was not owned, or was a political puppet. For that he was killed and we have not had a president since who was his own man. And for those of you who think Obama is the Messiah, he is heavily connected to the first three groups. Has been since the beginning of his career. Surprised? You shouldn't be.

You have read about four different organizations; all secret. Do you think it is a coincidence that the same names keep cropping up? Again, look at the positions held by these people. Almost entire cabinets are made up of people from these organizations. If you dig deep enough (and I have) every major publication is owned and/or controlled by someone on these membership lists (some people are on all four). That means that what you read is tainted, slanted and only giving the illusion of telling the truth; especially figures, and graphs, and demographics. All massaged to support whatever it is they want us to believe. And it started a very long time ago, yet nothing's changed.

Both parties used the media to build the perception of opposing positions on key issues, while all the while building consensus on issues that were critical to social change. That's verified in the Congressional Record for 1917, which reported that "...the J.P. Morgan [banking] interests.... and their subsidiary organizations got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press of the US.... They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information...." - Congressman Oscar Callaway statements were included in the Congressional Record (vol. 54, February 9, 1917, p. 2947).

You want to know what is really heartbreaking? We were warned about what was happening way back in the beginning. Heck, even Thomas Jefferson was trying to warn us! And now, here we are in 2011 and everything we were told is coming to fruition. If it's a few isolated instances, one can blow them off. But when it's constant, over and over, and leaders are telling you to beware-shouldn't you take a closer look? I'm with President Kennedy, why all the secrecy?

You may call me a nut, kook, crazy or conspiracy theorist. It doesn't bother me because I'm in extremely good company. I just feel sorry for those of you who don't believe, because one day you're going to wake up and realize that us crazies had it right.



Meredith on July 28, 2015:

I agree. I feel frustrated because I want a plan of action to expose & stop control of Americans.

Time to wake up on November 09, 2013:

Who is controlling and deceiving mankind?

First find out who authorised the monetary system onto the world and there you have your answer.

Today we call these ridiculously rich family bloodlines of financial power the INTERNATIONAL BANKERS whose genealogy can be taken back through time that established the fraternity order of the 'Knights Templar.'

Trace this lineage further back and we will see this order controlling the government behind the Roman Empire and thus creating the might of the Vatican sovereignty.

Yet this order which has always hidden in the shadows of kingship, masquerading as a priesthood under many names and secret societies first appeared out of ancient Sumer/Babylon before sitting behind the throne of the Pharaohs in ancient Egypt. It is here where they become known as 'The brotherhood of the snake'.

Today we know some of their offshoot orders as the 'Illuminati' 'Skull & Bones' 'Bilderberg' etc...

Yet these orders only serve the power that lies in the dark priesthood of the Vatican.

We know this priesthood as the 'Jesuit Society' who only serve the 'Black Pope' who is the secret ruler of the Holy See.

This secret order is the military wing of the Vatican.

They are Mossad of Israel, the MI5 of British Intelligence, the CIA of the American military industrial complex etc...

They pull the strings of every secret society and military operations intelligences worldwide. They are the reason we have public schools, altered history books, banks, governments, religions and any type of controlling institution whose purpose is to control the minds of the people and to rule and divide humanity.

They are our controllers and hidden masters....


They too serve something GREATER....

something that grants them all Power here on earth.

Sylvia Van Peebles (author) from Southern California on January 25, 2012:

Hi Warren! No, we didn't listen and we'e still not listening.

Warren Baldwin from Kansas on November 15, 2011:

Mmm, this is interesting, especially after reading some stuff on Thomas Jefferson and his warnings against letting politicians and those in big business get control of the government. He worked hard against allowing the elite to control the central (federal) government, to increase debt, raise taxes, and siphon the money from the middle class into the bank accounts of the elite. To prevent that he advocated strong state govnerments and a very weak federal government. Doesn't sound like we listened to him. Interesting post. WB

Sylvia Van Peebles (author) from Southern California on August 11, 2011:

FYI - The head of S & P (Standard & Poor's) is connected to all three groups! You know, the ones who downgraded our credit standing. hmmmmm.... And the 'Feds' are dinking with the interest rate while Wall Street is having a nervous breakdown. hmmmmm...

Sylvia Van Peebles (author) from Southern California on July 29, 2011:

Hello James! Thank you for you comment. You hit the nail squarely on the head. And, as you and both have said, it's nothing new.

James A Watkins from Chicago on July 29, 2011:

Your article is very good. Thank you for the meticulous research and excellent writing. No doubt there are people who want to rule the world. There always have been—why should today be any different?

That said I do see a difference in the political parties—or I should say political ideologies more accurately. The way I see it the Progressives WANT a one-world government along socialist/communist lines because no matter the Marxist rhetoric, an elite 5 percent runs every communist system (someone has to) and lives in ultimate luxury. They do so in secret unlike under capitalism where the rich live out in the open. The Progressives see themselves as the elite 5 percent.

Conservatives are the last holdouts for a soveriegn America and against the New World Order, for they are for capitalism and Christianity. The New World Order must be Atheistic.

Sylvia Van Peebles (author) from Southern California on July 20, 2011:

Hi writeronline! When I do an article such as this I know that I will be challenged, that's why I do a lot of research. I have checked and crossed checked my information. I try to use unimpeachable sources as much as I can. Presidents, judges, people of position, influence and intelligence have brought these facts into the open and have tried to warn us. But for decades we have ignored them. It boggles the mind what people are willing to believe. How can you deny the Bush family's involvement in Skull and Bones when the pictures proving it came straight from Yale University's archives? I agree with your last statement. What's even sadder is that we have to accept our share of the blame because we let it happen. Think about it, this stuff started back in the 1800's. It's so big now and the roots so deep, it would take all of us to stop it, and I just don't see that happening.

Thanks for your comments. I always appreciate them!

Sylvia Van Peebles (author) from Southern California on July 20, 2011:

Hi MOEFLATS! Yes, I am a listener and an observer. I don't mind swimming upstream, going against traffic, or speaking truth. I don't intimidate and I will never be accused of being politically correct. Thanks for your support!

writeronline on July 20, 2011:

How I enjoy reading work about issues that really matter; work that takes a position; expresses it clearly and firmly, supports it with evidence, then sits up and says "Fault this, if you can."

That's why I enjoyed this so much.

This is impressive writing, and impressive analysis, Sylvia (imho).

Unfortunately, you've already attracted the expected comment from someone who clings to the belief that we can feel comfortable judging our political / business / religious leaders by the standards of decency we set for ourselves.

But in fact worse, much worse, also believing the hype / lies / misinformation / media personas, that the individuals you mention, manipulate honest people into accepting as truth.

The sad part is that the truth is out there. (And in here. In spades. I learned heaps, thankyou). But first, you have to be willing to look for it. Then, when you find it, willing to accept it.

Sadly, because most people either don't believe, or more often, just don't care, (even though this stuff affects every one of us), I don't think the Bilderberg group will be going away anytime soon.

MOEFLATS on July 20, 2011:

It is awesome to hear your un-fettered mind express itself. It would be logical to assume that Bilderberg group has something to do with the mass brainwashing of the American people. This specifically involves not only a completely bogus media, but also bombardment by microwave-based, subliminal messages to: dumb-down, castrate and lobotomize anyone who doesn't agree with their "shadow government". Two thumbs up on exposing the likely source of the zombifacation/mechanization of the American people.

Sylvia Van Peebles (author) from Southern California on July 20, 2011:

Correction: But then, you wouldn't believe it anyway. BTW...these are not theories but documented facts.

Sylvia Van Peebles (author) from Southern California on July 20, 2011:

American Romance, politicians are scum-both sides. And it's not just the two latest Bush men. It goes all the way back to their grandfather. But then, you would believe it anyway. BTW...these are not theories but documented facts.

Sylvia Van Peebles (author) from Southern California on July 20, 2011:

Thank you Binaya!

American Romance from America on July 20, 2011:

I was really enjoying your conspiracy theory until Iread the part about Bush and Cheney, Both of these strong family men wouldn't have the indecency to get involved in crap like that. Besides the world knows the Dems are scum!

Binaya.Ghimire on July 20, 2011:

I enjoyed your hub and concerned about the issues you raise. Nice work.
