The late Georgetown University historian Carroll Quigley said in his book titled, “Tragedy and Hope:”
“(T)he powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.”
By controlling democratic and despotic governments as well as others in between, they’ve moved closer to absolute global control of money, credit and debt to dominate economies, politics, commerce, and imperial adventurism. As a result, they’ve benefitted handsomely at the expense of nations and popular interests.

An all out campaign of corporate and government propagand has obscured the truth of the blatant reality that economic elite have raped and pillaged a generation of Americans.
The veil of secrecy that keeps us blinded to our oppressors is disguised beneath obfuscated financial data and blatantly manipulated government statistics.
The truth of the matter is every single American feels the stress and pain of increasingly burdensome economic hardships on a daily basis.
While we have been fooled to believe our troubles are isolated the light of truth is revealed from the great dark beyond and the fog that clouds our thoughts begin to clear.

When the Industrial Revolution began in Britain, in the late 1700s, there was lots of money to be made by investing in factories and mills, by opening up new markets, and by gaining control of sources of raw materials. The folks who had the most money to invest, however, were not so much in Britain but more in Holland. Holland had been the leading Western power in the 1600s, and its bankers were the leading capitalists. In pursuit of profit, Dutch capital flowed to the British stock market, and thus the Dutch funded the rise of Britain, who subsequently eclipsed Holland both economically and geopolitically.
In this way British industrialism came to be dominated by wealthy investors, and capitalism became the dominant economic system. This led to a major social transformation. Britain had been essentially an aristocratic society, dominated by landholding families. As capitalism became dominant economically, capitalists became dominant politically. Tax structures and import-export policies were gradually changed to favour investors over landowners.
Bilderberg 2011:”Elitist One World Ltd. – Global Network of Giant Cartells, More Powerful than Any Nation, to Control Mankind´s Necessities of Life and Numbers Through Bloody Wars”Posted: July 29, 2011

The Bilderberg meeetings are held 2-3 days every year – for one reason: to create a corporate world government to enslave mankind. This year, the elitist bankers, their politician and corporate henchmen and a few journalists met at St. Moritz, Switzerland on 9-10 June – all sworn in to keep silent about the matters discussed. However the Bilderberg hunters Jim Tucker and Daniel Estulin have reliable moles inside the meeting – so that important points always seep out. This year war was on the program. The elitists want a big an bloody war in the Middle East – just sparing Israel. Syria and Iran are being targeted – but another story is how NATO can manage such a big war considering all the failures in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya etc.Invasion of Libya and intervention in Syria are reported to be in the planning. Why? Jim Tucker, said the elite believe the world is over-populated and that war represents a partial solution. “They are unified on their war project,” said Tucker, citing his Trilateralist-Bilderberg source. They think “ they have to limit the population growth, the one way to do it is with our wars. They have been emphasizing that all day.” So, they had invited both NATO´s Secretary-General, Anders Fogh Rasmussen and Serving US Minister of Defence, Robert Gates. The elitists are concerned about the increasing opposition in the US Congress against endless wars for the elitist dreams – and so the elite is determined to act soon – before the opposition becomes too strong. So, they want US to stay in Iraq. “When you think of Iraq, think big,” one US Bilderberger remarked during the discussion, suggesting that the country will merely be used as a launch pad for a wider regional war that will “include every nation in the Middle East except for Israel.”

The Four Horsemen of Banking (Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo) own the Four Horsemen of Oil (Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell, BP Amoco and Chevron Texaco); in tandem with Deutsche Bank, BNP, Barclays and other European old money behemoths. But their monopoly over the global economy does not end at the edge of the oil patch.
According to company 10K filings to the SEC, the Four Horsemen of Banking are among the top ten stock holders of virtually every Fortune 500 corporation.
So who then are the stockholders in these money center banks?
This information is guarded much more closely. My queries to bank regulatory agencies regarding stock ownership in the top 25 US bank holding companies were given Freedom of Information Act status, before being denied on “national security” grounds. This is rather ironic, since many of the bank’s stockholders reside in Europe.
The US Secretary of the Treasury, Henry Morgenthau, began investigating Nazi finances 60 years ago and found Allied banks, including many British and American high street names, who continued to do business with Hitler’s Germany throughout the war.

The Bilderberg Group was formed in 1954 out of the need of corporate America to ensure cohesion of purpose on the part of its European partners in the recently formed North Atlantic Alliance (NATO) – the twin aim being to facilitate the flow of American capital into the region, and to bring Germany into the Alliance (against, it should be noted, the wishes of many of the USA’s partners). That it is a group endowed with enormous political clout can be attested to by both an examination of the lists of committee members and conference attendees over the years – together with the gravity and importance of the subjects discussed at these conferences (NATO, understandably, being repeatedly a key subject); and the fact that these conferences take place under very strict security cover supplied by the respective host countries – even though implicit within the structure of this cabal is its unaccountable, secretive nature.
The Trilateral Commission was formed in 1973, its agenda determined by the corporate-funded Brookings Institute and the Kettering Foundation – with not a little help from David Rockefeller of the Chase-Manhattan Bank. That its projected formation should have been so enthusiastically acclaimed by the Bilderberg Conference in Knokke, Belgium in 1972 should cause no surprise. Both corporate-controlled organisations, with linked membership, they shared the same aim: increasing the globalisation of their wealth and power. Certainly, the Bilderberg with its total lack of any democratic accountability, must be in agreement with the Trilateral Commission’s declaration (published in their The crisis of Democracy) that what the West needs most ‘is a greater degree of moderation in democracy’.
An examination of the list of bankers involved in these bodies reveals that, of the banking organisations, the Banks for International Settlements (BIS) is the one of prime importance on the international scene – not only because of its prestigious membership (embracing as it does the head bankers of the leading industrial nations) – but also because of the significance of its links with other groups. This article will focus on it, at the expense of the other better-known banking institutions, for two reasons: its prime ranking in the international hierarchy; and the fact that so little knowledge of it is in the public domain.
