There is evidence that the Illuminati was not confined to Europe. In 1797, George Washington made a statement saying, in essence, that he believed the Illuminati had spread to the United States.
By the 1800s, the Illuminates were mentioned in the correspondence of Washington, Jefferson, Madison, and John Quincy Adams. They did not want this plan infiltrating the United States. Two hundred years later, the pieces of a global world empire ruled by the elite insiders would fall into place rapidly.
FAST FORWARD TO THE TWENTIETH CENTURY
In 1966, Carroll Quigley authored a book titled Tragedy and Hope: A History of Our Time. According to Tal Brook, author of One World, it literally “rocked those who saw it when it first came out.” Quigley was a Harvard and Princeton professor emeritus. Today, according to Quigley, the power of a certain group of bankers is colossal.
Quigley confesses to being an insider and confidant of this elite group. His 1300-page book named major insider power groups attempting to manipulate a world socialist order. Quigley supported the plan but no longer wanted to do it undercover.
TRAGEDY AND HOPE
Quigley’s book, Tragedy and Hope, was Quigley’s magnum opus. Even though he supported the plan, he revealed too much information. The Macmillan first edition in 1966 literally disappeared almost overnight, even from the public libraries. Quigley’s final post was professor of history at Georgetown University.
As professor at the Foreign Service School, one of his students in the 1960s was William Jefferson Clinton. Clinton was obviously deeply impacted by Quigley, as evidenced by his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention. “[Clinton] reverently mentioned Carroll Quigley, his mentor, as being one of the two people that were most influential in his life.”
I was able to obtain a copy of Quigley’s book. In Tragedy and Hope, Quigley summarized the insider’s grand plan:
“The powers of financial capitalism had a far-reaching (plan), 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 as a whole … This system was to be controlled in a feudalistic fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.”Quigley traces some of the wealthiest, most powerful families, such as the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, and Morgans. These families would exert their influence over governments by lending money with provisions that called for specific policies. This financial power encouraged governments to become dependent on them.
INTERNATIONAL BANKING ARISTOCRACIES
These large banking institutions were owned by family dynasties. For example, the banking dynasties of Rothschild include five pivotal nations in Europe. The family privately owns the Central Bank of England. The respective governments do not own the Bank of England, the Bank of France, and the Bank of Germany, as most people believe, but they are privately owned monopolies. According to Quigley:
“It must not be felt that these heads of the world’s central banks were themselves substantive powers in world finances. They were not … The substantive financial powers of the world were in the hands of these investment bankers (also called ‘international’ or ‘merchant’ bankers) who remained largely behind the scenes in their own unincorporated private banks.”Quigley and others reveal the fact that banking houses are owned by the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. The goal is a central bank. Europe has projected a central banking system that is a major milestone toward this goal. [Since this was written, the EU has come out with the euro and Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA).] Part of the agenda includes America’s central bank, the Federal Reserve. It was established in 1913 as the New York Reserve Bank and became powerful much later.
Some of the key family dynasties behind the Federal Reserve Bank are: Kuhn Loeb, Goldman Sachs, and the Lehman Brothers.
The above family dynasties preside over multiple banks, many of them with interlocking directorates. Most of these banks are private partnerships run by family dynasties.
THE FINANCIAL PYRAMID
Diagrammatically, the levels of this financial pyramid would look like the following [with #1 as the base of the pyramid and the most powerful]:
1. Great Family Dynasties [base of pyramid and most powerful]. They ownIf the prior listings were inserted into a drawing of a pyramid, the numbers would be inverted with # 1 being the base and # 4 being at the top of the pyramid.
2. Banks, which support the
3. International Monetary Fund (I.M.F.) and the World Bank, with a goal of a
4. Global Central Bank [top of pyramid least powerful].
G-20 AND GLOBALIZATION
The G-20 financial summit met in London on April 1-2, 2009. Their reason for meeting: a global financial crisis. As a result of this meeting, over 1 trillion dollars were contributed to the International Monetary Fund (I.M.F.) to give a boost to the world economy, re-distribute the wealth, and “help pull the world out of recession” (according to a U.K. article titled G-20 to unveil $1tn boost to world economy at London summit written by Sparrow, Baldwin, and Stewart and agencies. Co.uk, Thursday 2 April 2009). Note: The one trillion dollar contribution went into the IMF, which is ultimately supported by the Great Family Dynasties.
A One World Economy is accelerating at an exponential rate. The financial and political powers that are apparent are only “the tip of the iceberg.” The real financial power lies beneath the surface.
INTERNATIONAL NETWORK OF INSIDERS (1909-1913)
According to Quigley, there is an “international network” of “insiders” who meet for semi-secret discussions. The network is referred to as “Round Table Groups.” Quigley reveals the following about this “international network” in Tragedy and Hope:
“I know of the operations of this network because I studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments.”This international network of insiders known as the Round Table Groups paved the way for similar institutes of international affairs. In the United States, the Council on Foreign Relations was born.
THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS (JULY 29, 1921)
According to Professor Quigley, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) was the result of Round Table meetings that formed several semi-secret groups to help promote globalism. This opens the door to the agenda behind the CFR.
The CFR’s stated purpose is to advise the President on foreign matters. The CFR’s real purpose, or primary agenda, is not to advise the President but to promote a “New International Order” [see Chapter 5 of my book titled The Last Generation: Prophecy, Current World Events, and the End Times for a more detailed account with documentation].
Finances for the CFR came from John Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, Bernard Baruch, Otto Kahn, and Jacob Schiff. The roster of CFR members is impressive, and “so are the power groups who have representatives in it.”
International banking organizations currently have men in the CFR. “The CFR is totally interlocked with the major foundations (Rockefeller, Ford, Carnegie) and the so-called think tanks (Rand, Hudson Institute, Brookings Institute).” “The CFR and the financial powers behind it … promote the New World Order as they have for seventy years. The CFR is the promotional arm of the Ruling Elite in the United States of America.”
The real power behind the world governments rests in the hands of the elite. According to former Justice of the Supreme Court, Felix Frankfurter (1939-1962), “The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise from behind the scenes.”
THE POWER BEHIND WORLD GOVERNMENTS
The Elite, working behind the scenes, not only have the power to direct government policy and decision making, they have the power to start wars, instigate revolutions, and remove dictators from power. One example of this is seen in Part 1 of this article posted on April 1st. Adam Weishaupt, founder of Illuminism, pulled the strings to stage the French Revolution. [For specific examples that are more recent, see Chapter 5 of The Last Generation: Prophecy, Current World Events, and the End Times.]
We can conclude that elite family dynasties, the Illuminati, and the international bankers have enormous power over the world governments. This section has confirmed the fact that “… The love of money is the root of all sorts of evil …” (1 Timothy 6:10).
Up to this point, we have discussed the “hidden hands” pulling the strings of governmental affairs, but we haven’t addressed the “inner circle.” This inner circle is where the real power originates. This statement is made with the understanding that the demonic world is where the actual power lies behind the “inner circle.”
THE DARK EMPIRE
“The god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they may not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (2 Corinthians 4: 4).
C.S. Lewis pointed out in “The Inner Ring,” a lecture given at Oxford, that those who make the inner circle will begin summoning the dark god. The deepest “inner circle” moves into the realm of the demonic mafia or underworld. This includes professionals, politicians, and Hollywood directors. There are rewards for being in this “inner circle,” but the price is high.
HOLLYWOOD SETS THE PACE
A contemporary portrayal of the supernatural through a fictional lens can be seen by two famous directors of our time, Stanley Kubrick and Roman Polanski. “Both directors in their own way may have stumbled into this dark cabal [conspiratorial group of plotters], perhaps taking risks to warn of this reality (or conditioning the public to accept this eventuality). There has been some speculation that Kubrick, at one point, got a glimpse of this secret world.”
EYES WIDE SHUT
Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut is like a final message to the world. The famed director filmed most of his final movie under absolute secrecy in England. He completed it just two weeks before he died an untimely death. As a side note: After writing this section, I rented the movie. I viewed it from an entirely different perspective after researching the topic.
Eyes Wide Shut deals with a frightening kind of power. It gives us an inside view of the hidden realities that escape the common man whose eyes are wide shut. According to Tal Brooke (author of One World), “The message is too threatening for self-satisfied and urban materialistic agnostics secure in believing there is no devil.”
The movie is a sobering experience once you realize it is not just fiction. Evidence of the movie’s reality was Kubrick’s mysterious and untimely death two weeks after it was completed. Add to this the fact that it was filmed in absolute secrecy in England.
Someone, or certain groups, did not want this movie made. They did not want the exposure.
The setting of the movie was on a palatial estate on Long Island, “perhaps suggesting the even larger Rockefeller estate in nearby Upstate New York.” An ambitious Manhattan doctor (portrayed by Tom Cruise) manages to walk in on a massive midnight gathering. There were a hundred or more of the “most powerful people in the world” wearing black robes and hoods. One cannot help but wonder who are behind the masks of these powerful people.
What followed was an event that suggested a satanic mass. Following this religious ritual was an orgy throughout the estate. All moral barriers were broken in contempt against the rigidity of a holy God.
In the end, the doctor, played by Tom Cruise, was rescued from possibly becoming that evening’s human sacrifice. “He was in over his head and did not have a clue what kind of world he had just entered.”
Kubrick’s message was direct and to the point: “THEY EXIST.”
TRUTH OR FICTION?
There is such a place in the redwood trees of Northern California that the movie seems to implicate. “The French-sounding chant during the ritual scene in Eyes Wide Shut suggests the inscription on the gate at the Bohemian Grove.”
The Bohemian Grove deals with the reality behind the fictional movie Eyes Wide Shut. There is some speculation that Kubrick was once a guest at the elite Bohemian Grove’s annual gathering. [See chapter 5 of The Last Generation for details, names, and events that have occurred at the Bohemian Grove. It will surprise you. There is documentation.]
Rosemary’s Baby is an occult classic, directed by Roman Polanski. The approach is different from Eyes Wide Shut, but the theme is the same: “that a dark, hidden cabal at the highest reaches of society operates virtually undetected—due to unbelief—controlling huge sectors of the world from a hidden vantage point. The cunning international devil worshippers blend in with the rest of society, outwardly looking harmless.”
As the story goes, Rosemary was to be the host for Satan. She was to be impregnated with a satanic fetus. The internationally known Dr. Saperstein treated Rosemary with various potions needed by the satanic fetus. The coven included the doctor. No one believed Rosemary. She was portrayed as paranoid or delusional. The coven consisted of middle or upper-class people.
“The film either exposed the blinding power of unbelief or, on a deeper level, was a paean to Satan’s power.”
Shortly after the film’s released, the Manson gang entered Polanski’s home and murdered his wife, Sharon Tate.
Satan is a master of deceit. Through deception and the power of unbelief, he controls the family dynasties, international bankers, the super rich, and the elite. Ultimately, he is moving the world toward a supernatural mindset for the end times, preparing the world for a dark messiah, the Antichrist.
In Part 1 (posted on April 1) and Part 2 of The Coming One World Economy, we have reviewed the overt development through treaties and governmental policies, and we have also looked at the covert development through the elite, the family dynasties, the international bankers, and the demonic underground connection with high profile people, i.e., professionals and politicians.
All of this is part of a prophetic pattern. These last two articles on the coming one world economy covered the third pillar of the Last Empire. We are indeed in the last generation.
If you don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, there is no time like the present to make that decision. “If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved” (Romans 10: 9). “For the Scripture says, ‘WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.’” (Romans 10:11). If you have done this, you don’t have to worry about the future because you know the One who holds the future, and you belong to Him. ________________________________________________________________________________________
