America’s real rulers have access to immense fortunes, operate behind the scenes, and enjoy near-absolute power
“[The Controllers of the Invisible Government] would continue to grow in strength, until they had the whole silly world, the whole credulous world, the whole ingenuous world, in their hands. Anyone who would challenge them, attempt to expose them, show them unconcealed and naked, would be murdered, laughed at, called mad, ignored, or denounced as a fantasy-weaver.” — Taylor Caldwell, Captains and the Kings, 1972
This article argues that the five major countries of the Anglosphere — Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK, and the US — are governed behind the scenes by a coterie. This coterie shapes historical events, accounts for the near-uniformity of these five countries’ political developments, and enjoys partial or full control of most nations of the world. As far as we can guess, this coterie is comprised of a few banking families and their allies and subordinates in the information, corporate, military, intelligence, secret society, and “religious” worlds.
This coterie and its members go by such names as the deep state, One Bank, bankers, oligarchs, Directors, Men in the Shadows, Owners, or Princes of Power. In this series, I shall refer to the entity itself as the Invisible Government and, following Aldous Huxley, to its head honchos as the Controllers.
What is it that the Controllers are after? Why aren’t they content with what they already have? The best guess is that they are just as sick as the fictional Eddorians:
While not essentially bloodthirsty—that is, not loving bloodshed for its own sweet sake—they were no more averse to blood-letting than they were in favor of it. Any amount of killing which would or which might advance an Eddorian toward his goal was commendable; useless slaughter was frowned upon, not because it was slaughter, but because it was useless—and hence inefficient. And, instead of the multiplicity of goals sought by the various entities of any race of Civilization, each and every Eddorian had only one. The same one: power. Power! P-O-W-E-R!! (Doc Smith, Triplanetary, 1948)
Likewise, the head of the Invisible Government in This Perfect Day reveals his real motives:
“Chip, listen to me,” he said, leaning forward, “there’s joy in having it, in controlling, in being the only one.”
Why Prove the Reality of the Invisible Government?
I’m not aware of any near-conclusive proof for the existence of the Invisible Government. This article attempts to close that gap.
Also, most people are not even dimly aware of the Invisible Government. And even the few who are awake can still be mesmerized by the charade of elections, still subscribe to the fiction that the president of the USA is elected by the people (in reality, he is selected and disposed of by the Controllers), still look upon said president as an independent actor, still talk about him as “the most powerful man in the world.” They fail to see a simple truth: It doesn’t matter who the president of the USA is, who sits in Congress or on the Supreme Court, who performs for the mainstream media or organized religion. It doesn’t matter who writes for the New York Times, who recites at National Public Radio, who avers whatever in any of the major think tanks. All these people are jumping jacks. Hopefully, proving the reality of the Invisible Government will help some people extricate themselves from the Controllers’ pervasive propaganda.
But, you may wonder: Is it conceivable that so many people mistake puppets for puppeteers? Hollywood provides a trivial illustration. Most movie watchers know the actors, but few know the controllers behind the camera: producers, scriptwriters, and directors.
I shall explore elsewhere the profound strategic implications of shifting our focus from the puppets to the puppeteers. If mercenaries are invading your republic, your most logical target is their financial sponsor. Once you effectively shine the light on, impoverish, arrest, intimidate, or assassinate this sponsor, the looting of your country will cease. Likewise, reformers and revolutionaries must shift their attention from the likes of Monsanto, British Petroleum, President of the United States, Senior Senator from Arizona, Governor of Wisconsin, or Chancellor of Germany, to the handful of their financial sponsors.
Who are the Controllers?
I want to know who the men in the shadows are. — Jackson Browne
Jeff Nielson offers the following brilliant deduction:
At first glance; the question appears elementary. The One Bank is a financial crime syndicate which controls 40% of the global economy – a global economy with annual GDP of roughly $70 trillion. Clearly the owners of the One Bank would have to be “the world’s richest people” (richest men?).
Here the Corporate media is only too happy to be of service to us. Once a year; we are presented with a “world’s richest list”, which is then parroted by all of the other outlets of the Big Media oligopoly, ad nauseam. Thus, we simply peruse this list for the names at the top, and we have our “owners” of the One Bank. Et voila!
More than 90% of the actual wealth in the world today (real and paper) is hidden from us.
Instead, the only rational answer is that there is another, entire tier of the “world’s richest”, an echelon above all the B-List Billionaires on the official lists. The real “world’s richest” are, in fact, not billionaires at all, but rather trillionaires: the Oligarch Trillionaires who own (among other things) the One Bank.
How wealthy are these Oligarchs? Not only are these Oligarchs wealthy enough to be able to hide their names (and fortunes) from all public scrutiny, these trillionaires wield enough power to even prevent the word “trillionaire” from being recognized as an official word in our dictionaries.
Nielson then identifies the Controllers’ with the Rothschild clan.
For my part, I have been trying to fathom the Controllers’ identities for a long time. I’ve read many competing speculations but never encountered a definitive answer. So I have some vague notions about their identity and suspect that somehow the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers (Rs&Rs) are involved.
Apart from that, I can only offer a few queries.
To avoid assassination, the Controllers typically rely on proxies, shadows, and surveillance mirrors. As we shall soon see, besides the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers sit atop an immense web of regimentation. So, are the Rs&Rs collaborating as equals? Are they competitors? Or are the Rockefellers merely the American agents of the Rothschilds? (not farfetched—the “mighty” J.P. Morgan was a Rothschild agent).
Above the ordinary billionaires, way up in the stratosphere, Nielson says, are the trillionaires. That could be another way of identifying the men in the shadows: Do the Rothschild and Rockefeller clans control trillions? Does the Catholic Church? Do British or Dutch royalties? Do some secret societies?
The intelligence agencies, the police, the armed forces of the USA, UK, Israel, and allied countries, have a license to kill, and they could perhaps do away with the bankers and become the top dogs. Why don’t they? How do the Controllers keep these Praetorian Guards in line?
It’s important to note, however, that our limited information about the Controllers’ identity in no way invalidates our forthcoming conclusion that the Controllers, conniving in the background, are the real power brokers. Humans have always known that water exists, even though they were often ignorant of its constituent parts. The same goes for the Invisible Government: Truth-seekers have excellent reasons to believe it exists, although information about its internal structure and the identity of its members remains as elusive as they are.
Evidence Supporting the Existence of the Invisible Government
Insider Quotes: Many Insiders Tried to Alert us:
Banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies. — Thomas Jefferson, 1816
A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many and various powerful interests, combined in one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in banks.– John C. Calhoun, 1836
As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavour to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.–Abraham Lincoln
Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.—From the Platform of President Theodore Roosevelt’s Progressive (“Bull Moose”) Party
[W]e have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world—no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men. – Woodrow Wilson, 1913
“The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation. To depart from mere generalizations, let me say that at the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as the international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties, write political platforms, make catspaws of party leaders, use the leading men of private organizations, and resort to every device to place in nomination for high public office only such candidates as will be amenable to the dictates of corrupt big business. These international bankers and Rockefeller–Standard Oil interests control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.” — John Hylan, 1922
“I find that the Morgan [=Rothschild] and Rockefeller groups alone held, together, 341 directorships in 112 banks, railroad, insurance, and other corporations, and one of this group made an after-dinner speech in which he said that a newspaper report had asserted that 12 men in the United States controlled the business of the Nation, and in the same speech to this group he said, ‘And I am one of the 12 and you the balance, and this statement is correct.’ . . . Unless we provide for the redistribution of wealth in this country, the country is doomed; there is going to be no country left here very long.” — Huey Long, 1932
When the Federal Reserve act was passed, the people of the United States did not perceive . . . that this country was to supply financial power to an international superstate — a superstate controlled by international bankers and international industrialists acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure.”– Congressman Louis T. McFadden, 1932
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.— Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1933
The Rockefellers and their allies have, for at least fifty years, been carefully following a plan to use their economic power to gain political control of first America, and then the rest of the world. Do I mean conspiracy? Yes, I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent. — Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1975
Views of Other Knowledgeable Observers
The first quote is from an outraged journalist (in those bygone days when some mainstream journalists defended truth and people). The next two are from high-level captive intellectuals.
The treason of the Senate! Treason is a strong word, but not too strong, rather too weak, to characterize the situation in which the Senate is the eager, resourceful, indefatigable agent of interests [the Rockefellers] as hostile to the American people as any invading army could be, and vastly more dangerous; interests that manipulate the prosperity produced by all, so that it heaps up riches for the few; interests whose growth and power can only mean the degradation of the people, of the educated into sycophants, of the masses toward serfdom. — David Graham Phillips, Treason of the Senate, 1906
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country… We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. — Edward Bernays, 1928
There grew up in the twentieth century a power structure between London and New York which penetrated deeply into university life, the press, and the practice of foreign policy. . . . In addition to their power over government based on government financing and personal influence, bankers could steer governments in ways they wished them to go by other pressures. the advice given to governments by bankers . . . was consistently good for bankers, but was often disastrous for governments, businessmen, and the people generally. — Carroll Quigley
An article in one of the Invisible Government’s chief propaganda organs clearly underscores who is really in charge of the UK:
Governed either by or on behalf of the people who fleece us, we cannot be surprised to discover that all public services are being re-engineered for the benefit of private capital. . . . The financial sector exploits an astonishing political privilege: the City of London [London’s financial district] is the only jurisdiction in the UK not fully subject to the authority of parliament. In fact, the relationship seems to work the other way. Behind the Speaker’s chair in the House of Commons sits the Remembrancer, whose job is to ensure that the interests of the City of London are recognised by the elected members.
In the U.S., the Rockefellers played a key role for some 140 years. David Rockefeller in particular, in rare exhibitionist moments, likes to brag:
We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promise of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The super-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.
So, we have it straight from the Psychopath’s mouth: It’s Rockefeller and his lackeys—and not the nominal governments—who are conspiratorially developing their “plan for the world” and who possess enough power to do so. If they get their way, we shall become the slaves to conscience-less bankers like David Rockefeller and to such “intellectual” flunkeys of theirs as Kissinger, Brzezinski, Friedman, Greenspan, and Sachs.
In another overweening moment, David Rockefeller allowed these lines to be inserted into his own encyclopedia:
Rockefeller has met with and advised every American President since Eisenhower… President Jimmy Carter offered him the positions of United States Secretary of the Treasury and Federal Reserve Chairman but he declined both instead preferring a private role… Rockefeller has been able to act as bridge to various interests around the world, including Saddam Hussein and Communist leaders such as Fidel Castro, Nikita Khrushchev, and Mikhail Gorbachev… Rockefeller also reportedly has connections to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). David was extensively briefed on covert intelligence… Additionally, he serves as the only member of the Advisory Board for the Bilderberg Group… In 1992, he was selected as a leading member of the Russian-American Bankers Forum, an advisory group set up by the head of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to advise Russia on the modernization of its banking system, with the full endorsement of President Boris Yeltsin… Rockefeller began a lifelong association with the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) when he joined as a director in 1949, the youngest member appointed to that position yet. He would later become head of the nominating committee for future membership and after that the chairman of this foreign policy think-tank. In 1965, Rockefeller and other businessmen formed the Council of the Americas to stimulate and support economic integration in the Americas. In 1992, at a Council sponsored forum, Rockefeller proposed a “Western Hemisphere free trade area”, which subsequently became the Free Trade Area of the Americas in a Miami summit in 1994… Rockefeller helped found the Trilateral Commission in July 1973.
Given this web of subjection, given the Rockefellers’ 140-year-long dominance of American politics, it seems reasonable to suppose that the Rockefeller clans belongs to the exclusive club of world puppeteers.
Near-identical policies suggest that the same entity(s) is pulling strings everywhere.
At times, the Controllers are careless, treating us to such bizarre spectacle as the “heads” of Canada and Australia reciting the same speech. Is it conspiratorial to suppose that they were reading a speech handed to them by someone possessing more power than they could ever dream of having?
Here is another trivial, and yet suggestive, example of convergence:
What do New York City and London have in common? Both are eliminating their public libraries against the will of the public and replacing them with luxury housing, using secretive, deceptive tactics. . . . It is almost as if the authors of the London and NYC articles copied each other and substituted different libraries, one from London, the other from NYC.
That grotesque uniformity applies to all key policies of the Anglosphere and its colonies. They all fight “terror” and are subjected to “terror,” they all deliberately and needlessly impoverish and poison their people, they all pay lip service to environmental stewardship—while steadily undermining the physical and biological foundations of life itself.
Or take the curious case of Crimea. Any decent person who knows what really happened in the Ukraine since the 2014 CIA regime-change operation would agree that the people of Crimea—mostly anti-fascist Russians—had a right to secede from Ukraine and join their historical Russian home. Instead, the official policies of all Western countries is that this act of Russian “aggression” calls for nuclear brinkmanship that could cost—deliberately or accidentally—the lives of billions. Only a central authority controlling all these countries could bring about such suicidal compliance.
Shortly before dying of cancer, renowned filmmaker Aaron Russo said:
So I had a friend, Nick Rockefeller, who was one of the Rockefeller family. . . . And one of the things that we used to talk about . . . the goals of the banking industry — not just the Federal Reserve System but the private banks in Germany, and England, all over Italy, all over the world — they all work together, they’re all central banks. . . . And so, the ultimate goal that these people have in mind is the goal to create a one-world government, run by the banking industry. . . there’ll be no more cash. . . . And I used to say to him that I never really did that because that wasn’t where I was coming from. As much as I like you, Nick, your way isn’t my way, we’re on the opposite side of the fence. I don’t believe in enslaving people.
[Rockefeller said something like]:
What do you care about them? What do you care about those people? What difference does it make to you? Take care of your own life. Do the best you can for you and your family. What do the rest of the people mean to you? They don’t mean anything to you. They’re just serfs, they’re just people.”
It was just a lack of caring. And that’s just not who I was. It was just sort of cold.
Massive Concentration of Wealth
“You’re looking at the most expensive Congress money can buy.” — Bill Moyers, 2013
Jeff Nielson reminds us:
Roughly 2½ years ago, readers were introduced to a paradigm of crime, corruption, and control which they now know as “the One Bank.” First they were presented with a definition and description of this crime syndicate.
That definition came via a massive computer model constructed by a trio of Swiss academics, and cited with favor by Forbes magazine. The computer model was based upon data involving more than 10 million “economic actors,” both individuals and corporations, and the conclusions which that model produced were nothing less than shocking.
The One Bank is “a super-entity” comprised of 144 corporate fronts, with approximately ¾ of these corporate fronts being financial intermediaries (i.e. “banks”). According to the Swiss computer model; via these 144 corporate tentacles, the One Bank controls approximately 40% of the global economy. The only thing more appalling than the massive size of this crime syndicate is its massive illegality.
Attentive readers will notice that there is nothing new under the sun: This computer model echoes what Huey Long said 84 years ago.
The golden rule of politics states: He who has the gold, rules. Wouldn’t the owners of ill-gotten almost everything use their wealth to rule the world?
The Controllers are above the Law
Here is Jeff Nielson again:
On a near weekly basis; the Big Banks of the West are caught-and-convicted (but never punished), perpetrating criminal conspiracies literally thousands of times larger than any other financial crimes in human history. The U.S. government has now publicly proclaimed that its Big Banks have a license to steal.
Another example is provided by a U.S. Congressional report, entitled “Too Big to Jail: Inside the Obama Justice Department’s Decision Not to Hold Wall Street Accountable.” This report proved that—“despite criminal wrongdoing as insidious as supporting major drug cartels and catering to states considered enemies of the United States”—certain Big Banks are above the law.
That is precisely what you would expect from a Department of Justice that is ruled by the very individuals it is obligated to put behind bars.
Challenging the Controllers is a Life- or Career-Threatening Business
If the Invisible Government exists, then its control of government and information sources confers upon it a license to sideline, smear, incarcerate, or kill, its influential challengers.
This subject has been covered extensively elsewhere; for the moment we only need to mention that 4 of the 12 people cited in this posting for hostile criticisms of the Invisible Government were probably assassinated: Presidential candidate Huey Long, muckraking journalist David Graham Phillips, Congressman Louis McFadden (“heart attack,” having survived two earlier assassination attempts), and Congressman Larry McDonald (airplane “accident”).
Four others in this list died or were incapacitated comparatively young: Ex-President Theodore Roosevelt died at age 60, President Wilson was incapacitated in office, age 62, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt died in office (years after surviving a coup attempt) age 63, and Aaron Russo died of cancer, age 64.
On the other hand, activist Upton Sinclair died at age 90. Henry A. Wallace died at 77, Oscar Callaway at 74, and NYC ex-mayor John Hylan died at 67. All four were viciously smeared by the Rockefeller media. Thanks to those media and the Controllers’ power, the last three were unceremoniously evicted from the political world.
These data are certainly more consistent with the existence of an all-powerful Invisible Government than with its absence.
The Acknowledged Power of Billionaires
The Rockefellers and Rothschilds (Rs&Rs) hand-pick a few shrewd yet acquiescent individuals to positions of political power (e.g., Rockefeller stooges Kissinger or Brzezinski) or, in all likelihood, help some people become billionaires (e.g., Bill Gates, Mikhail Khodorkovsky). In return, the politicians promise obedience and the billionaires undertake to toe the line and never, ever, share their excessive wealth with the people. Some of these handpicked billionaires—unlike their cautious masters—are kept in the limelight while promoting their masters’ agenda (so that, if push comes to shove, they, and not their benefactors, will be pitchforked).
Here are a few examples:
Russia’s Criminal Oligarchs
In Russia, the Rs&Rs created, out of thin air, a few plundering oligarchs. One, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, was powerful enough at one point to challenge a popular, democratically-elected, government.
According to Andrei Raevsky, a titanic struggle is being waged between Russian patriots and the Controllers’ oligarchs who are still running Russian finance and banking, key economic ministries, and the Central Bank. These oligarchs “are, by far, the single biggest threat . . . to the Russian people as a whole.”
David Galland and Stephen McBride write:
During the 1980s and 1990s, Soros used his extraordinary wealth to bankroll and fund revolutions in dozens of European nations, including Czechoslovakia, Croatia, and Yugoslavia. He achieved this by funneling money to political opposition parties, publishing houses, and independent media in these nations.
There’s no doubt about Soros’s great influence on US foreign policy. In an October 1995 PBS interview with Charlie Rose, he said, “I do now have access [to US Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott]. There is no question. We actually work together [on Eastern European policy].
If you wonder why Soros meddled in these nations’ affairs, part of the answer may lie in the fact that during and after the chaos, he invested heavily in assets in each of the respective countries.
He then used Columbia University economist Jeffrey Sachs to advise the fledgling governments to privatize all public assets immediately, thus allowing Soros to sell the assets he had acquired during the turmoil into newly formed open markets.
Having succeeded in advancing his agenda in Europe through regime change—and profiting in the process—he soon turned his attention to the big stage, the United States.”
Why is Soros spending a fortune establishing a variety of organizations, mimicking his “successes” in Europe? For one simple reason: to buy political power.
More recently, Soros has given more than $33 million to the Black Lives Matter group, which has been involved in outbreaks of social unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore, Maryland, in 2015. Both of these incidents contributed to a worsening of race relations across America.
He is intent on destroying national borders and creating a global governance structure with unlimited powers. From his comments directed toward Viktor Orbán, we can see he clearly views national leaders as his juniors, expecting them to become puppets that sell his narrative to the ignorant masses. . . .
By all appearances, Soros is conspiring against humanity and is hell-bent on the destruction of Western democracies.
Soros alone, it would appear, wields more power than America’s Congress, President, and Supreme Court. Moreover, is it just a coincidence that Soros carries out David Rockefeller’s stated agenda?
Eric Margolis writes about Netanyahu:
[In 2015] came the triumphant visit to Congress by Israel’s rightwing prime minister . . . Congress put on a truly revolting display of sycophancy, servility and brownnosing . . . that included 23 rapturous standing ovations.
If you have an exceptionally strong stomach, you might want to watch this video:
YouTube – Veterans Today –
This is neither the first time, nor the worst: In 2011, in a disgraceful, shocking, display of subservience, the thoroughly corrupt Netanyahu received 29 standing ovations.
Why are these politicians openly betraying humanity and the American people? The intrigues of one minor billionaire, working probably with the explicit or tacit consent of the Invisible Government, provide a partial answer.
“[Sheldon Adelson] has already threatened to invest unlimited sums of money to prevent the reelection of any Senator or Representative who is absent from Netanyahu’s speech.”
Historical Episodes Illustrating the Invisible Government’s Enormous Power
American “Medicine:” Follow the Rockefellers
No other peaceful population, probably since the 1839 Opium Wars, has been so devastated by a drug epidemic encouraged by a government.—James Petras and Robin Eastman-Abaya (Genocide by Prescription)
Isn’t it curious that the life expectancy at birth of people born in Spain or Switzerland is 83 years, while in the USA it is 79 (38th place in the world)—even though per capita spending on health in the USA is roughly 3.5 times greater than in Spain (in 2013, $9,146 vs. $2581)? Have you ever asked yourself why a Cuban born today is likely to live as long as her American counterpart, even though the per capita spending on health in the USA is 15 times larger than in Cuba?
As Americans . . . wonder how the country became enslaved to the highest healthcare costs in the world, we turn back the pages to look at how the modern medical paradigm came together in the early 20th century, courtesy of the Rockefeller Foundation and their cronies.
[The healthcare industry came into being] “as a result of a concerted and carefully plotted plan that was laid out generations ago by people with malice of forethought. . . . By taking over the medical industry in 1910 through studies which he made through the Carnegie foundation, John D. Rockefeller emerged as the kingpin of the medical monopoly in the United States. And he now presided over an allopathic system of medicine, controlled through every legislature by accreditation of hospitals, control of physicians, control of medications and which is essentially what we have today. . . . Interestingly enough, the Rockefellers control every major drug company in the world, and when I say control, I mean directly. . . . I think we understand that profit isn’t in and of itself a motivating driving factor for the David Rockefellers and others of the world. . . . America became the most expensive healthcare system in the world . . . through methodical planning over the course of generations by people with almost unthinkable amounts of wealth.

Prohibition: Follow the Rockefellers
Using alcohol as an alternative to oil would actually drive down food prices, help enrich the soil, and have a lot of other benefits. . . . So if alcohol can provide a cheaper and better fuel than gasoline, why doesn’t anyone talk about it today?
Well, John D. Rockefeller, under the ruse of Christian temperance, gave 4 million dollars to a group of old ladies and told them to fight for Prohibition (they successfully used the money to buy off Congress). Why? Rockefeller owned Standard Oil, the main company pushing gas as an alternative fuel to alcohol. By getting Congress to pass Prohibition laws, Rockefeller eliminated his competition.
Global Brainwashing Operations: Follow the Rockefellers
William Hearst remarked: “The newspapers control the nation.” The Controllers understood that, and wisely decided to subvert most information sources. After all, why should criminals who can print as much money as they wish, steal national gold hordes, manipulate governments, and possess a license to sideline, steal, defame, and kill, have to put up with inconvenient truths? Why should they have to tolerate the likes of David Graham Phillips writing in a main circulation magazine about their crime syndicate?
The wily Rockefellers rose to the occasion, with the sad result that most people—intellectuals included—remain clueless because they read newspapers, listen to radio, watch television, go to school, and study “history” books.
We may note in passing that only one in a thousand sees the obvious: As in the case of cyanide poisoning, the only way to prevent brain poisoning is to avoid exposure.
In 1917, Congressman Oscar Callaway explained how the Controllers colonized our minds:
In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, 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. . . . They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.
To be sure, truth served money and power long before 1915. Thomas Jefferson famously said in 1807:
I really look with commiseration over the great body of my fellow citizens, who, reading newspapers, live and die in the belief that they have known something of what has been passing in the world in their time.
The 1915 and subsequent campaigns merely refined the conversion of mainstream journalists into presstitutes. Here, for instance, is Upton Sinclair, writing in 1919:
I was determined to get something done about the atrocious conditions under which men, women and children were working the Chicago stockyards. In my efforts to get something done, I was like an animal in a cage. The bars of this cage were newspapers, which stood between me and the public; and inside the cage I roamed up and down, testing one bar after another, and finding them impossible to break.
Every seeker of compassion and rationality since then would recognize Sinclair’s cage as her own.
