"Wars and Rumors of Wars"

"Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don't want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."--Statement by Nazi war criminal Hermann Goering during [the] Nuremberg trials. [1]

No more so than since 9-11, have Americans been discouraged from questioning the apparent.  Conversely, we are encouraged to unify against terrorism by demonstrating "vigilance" in outward displays of "patriotism"-- frantic plastic flag-waving to endless loops of "I'm Proud to be an American", and pinning multitudinous magnetic yellow ribbons all over our vehicles; we are warned against the loose, dangerously communistic tendencies of "liberal" mindsets, and to instead extol those more "conservative" values, to pledge unfailing allegiance to the flag and elected leaders at all costs, to excuse such atrocities as perpetual detention and deprivation of suspects at Camp X-Ray and the justified terrorizing and torture of human beings at Abu Graib, and to accept being repeatedly lied to by everyone in this administration; dissent is treason, conformity is patriotism, focus on the message, ignore the messenger--collateral damage is necessary. 

Don't ask questions.  Don't disagree.  Proceed in lockstep.  Don't look behind the curtain of the apparent, even under the FOIA.

But look behind the curtain we must begin to do, lest we ourselves also contribute to the descent--no--to the demise of humanity.

For those who operate the curtain of current propaganda called "news", generate deception.  And anyone whose works remain out of the harsh light of scrutiny behind a curtain of illusion, intentionally conceal their deeds from public view, and do so not for our collective benefit. 

And it is my contention that anyone who hides his deeds from view obscures truth. 

What is it the media wish to conceal?

Interestingly, Webster's Dictionary defines that which is, "hidden from view, concealed," as OCCULT.  Webster's goes on to define OCCULT, " in occult blood; operating in secret (as in secret societies, fraternities)."  Webster's Student Dictionary defines OCCULT as, "Having to do with secret skills or powers that most people do not pretend to have."  Our English word OCCULT is derived from the Latin root word OCCULTUS, past participle of OCCULERE, meaning "to cover over."

Don't look behind the curtain. 

Don't question what you read or hear. 

Don't think for yourself.  

In the movie "The Wizard of OZ", when Dorothy's little dog Toto eventually runs behind the wizard's curtain (despite repeated admonitions) with Dorothy following him,  what do they find there?   A true wizard?  No, Dorothy and her friends discover what most who dare to peer behind the curtain of illusions find--no wizard at all--but instead a distortion of reality generated by a rather smallish man who has merely enlarged his visage via technology--quite literally via smoke and mirrors---tools manipulated for the express purpose of controlling the kingdom of Oz, and by which he also preserves his position of power.  

Only by slight of hand was the Wizard of Oz able to sustain such control and power over the Munchkins--by simply obfuscating truth and altering the appearance of reality. 

Josef Goebbels, mastermind of the Third Reich and Hitler's ingenious "Minster of propaganda," understood human's childlike proclivity for believing illusions and observed: "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

"The great mass of people ... will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one."
-- Adolf Hitler (1889–1945), Mein Kampf, vol. 1, ch. 10 (1925).

"If you lie, lie big, for a little of even the most outrageous lie will stick if you press it hard enough.
Never hesitate, never qualify, never concede a shred of validity or even decency to the other side.
Attack, attack, attack!"
-- Adolf Hitler

"There [were] many survivors of [torture at] Auschwitz, some from Tremblinka and Sobibor, but only one known survivor of Belzec. The only information available about the operations of those camps [came] from Kurt Gerstein a German chemical engineer, an Anti-Nazi who joined the SS with the hope of sabotaging the Nazi extermination operations from within. As a chemical expert he visited the Belzec Camp. He tried to alert the world about the atrocities; he sent notes to the Swedish Government, tried to contact the Papal Nuncio in Berlin, to no avail, nobody wanted to get involved. After the war, while imprisoned by the French, he furnished the following eyewitness account:

   "In January 1942 I was named chief of the Waffen -SS technical disinfection services, including section for the extremely toxic gases. On June 8, 1942, SS Sturmfuhrer Gunther of the RSHA came to see me. He was dresses in civilian clothing. I had never met him before. He ordered me to get him prussic acid and to bring for him immediately 100 kilograms of prussic acid and to bring it to a place known only to the truck driver. He said he needed the acid for a top secret mission . . . As soon as the truck was loaded we left for Lublin. There, SS Gruppenfuhrer (Globocnik) was waiting for us . . . "This is one of the top secret matters there are, even the most secret. Anyone who talks will be shot immediately. Only yesterday two who talked were shot ," Globocnik explained to us. " You will have to disinfect large piles of clothing coming from the Jews, Poles Czechs, etc. Your other duty will be to improve the workings of our gas chambers, which operate on the exhaust from a Diesel engine. We need a more toxic and faster working gas, something like the prussic acid. The Fuhrer and Himmler -they were here the day before yesterday, August 15- and ordered me to accompany anybody who has to see the installation." Professor Pfannenstiel asked him," but what does the Fuhrer say? Globocnik answered": Fuhrer has ordered more speed. Dr. Herbert Lidner, who was here yesterday, asked him, 'Wouldn't it be more prudent to burn the bodies instead of burying them? Another generation may take a different view of these things.' I answered: 'Gentlemen, if there is ever a generation after us so cowardly, so soft, that it would not understand our work as good and necessary, then gentlemen, National Socialism will have been for nothing. On the contrary, we should bury bronze tablets saying that it was we, who had the courage to carry out this gigantic task!" Then the Fuhrer said: "Yes, my brave Globocnik, you are quite right.' "

-- Testimony of Kurt Gersten, Nuremberg Tribunal PS 1553 (from:

Any group of people whose deeds are likewise carefully concealed from public view,  are said to be operating in an occult manner. 

Our own government officials purportedly acting on our nation's behalf, and in our best interests, are ever more increasingly removing themselves from public scrutiny.  Yet we excuse them, for we are told our nation's security is at stake--we are under orange alert due to constant threats (acts) of "terrorism".

We have been further warned not to doubt or question our leaders ("Let us not tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories..."). Don't look behind the curtain. 

We have somehow been persuaded that only enemies of the state, terrorists, would disobey such directives.   Don't question what you hear.

Don't question history...........

In 1870, John D. Rockefeller began buying up all the oil and gas reserves, refineries, and transportation he could acquire.
By 1880 his Standard Oil Trust comprised of nine men, controlled 90% of the nation's oil production.

Those smaller "independent" companies outside Standard Oil Trust's auspices could neither compete nor survive.  Standard Trust (as Rockefeller's "holding company") soon absorbed them into itself, one by one.

In 1882, all of Standard Trust's rapidly acquired corporations were merged into the Trust.

In 1911, however, Rockefeller was wrist-slapped by the US Supreme Court for his then monopoly of energy and transportation.  In apparent acknowledgment of the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, he obliged by reorganizing (mostly changing the appearance and  the names of said companies to avoid the appearance of monopoly).  The Standard Trust networks then diversified, co-investing in scientific research and actively marketed themselves as public benefactors....

Meanwhile, however, The Rockefeller Foundation helped to establish such benevolent institutions as the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute
for Anthropology, Eugenics and Human Heredity, the German Society for Racial Hygiene, even funding the program that Josef Mengele himself worked in before he went to Auschwitz, while Standard Oil financed IG Farben, the chemical engineering company that created Zyklon B gas, used at Auschwitz to kill the Jews during the Holocaust, and the University of Chicago:

From c. 2003 article on eugenics in the San Francisco Chronicle:

By 1990, however, nearly a century later, Rockefeller and his heirs and assigns owned seven of the largest energy companies on the planet --  known to insiders as the "Seven Sisters". These were BP America (ARCO, Standard Oil Indiana, Standard Oil of England, Truckstops of America) and Royal Dutch/Shell, and the five (American) companies born out of the dismantling of Standard Oil's monopoly: Exxon, Mobil, Texaco, Chevron and Gulf Oil. (A really great page!)
(if Adobe's not on your computer, there's HTML version of above article, HERE)

The paternal parent of those Seven Sisters, however, was and always will be Standard Oil (Trust) of New Jersey. 

After numerous subsequent and ongoing mergers, however, Standard Oil's/Rockefeller's  "Seven Sisters" have ultimately converged into what is now deemed the world's largest INTEGRATED oil and gas producers. 

In fact, the only real competition to Rockefeller global empire appears to have been the Nobel (as in Peace Prize) - Rothschild Petroleum Company (as in Russia).

But that is another story.

The Saudis don't even own their own oil.  They couldn't get it out of the ground in the early part of the 20th century when oil was discovered in their deserts.   Walter Teagle of Standard Oil of New Jersey, advocate of foreign oil production, lead the U.S. consortium seeking entry to Middle East. Already monopolizing the growing industry through control of drilling, refining and getting product to market, Rockefeller then offered his equipment and related services in order to get the Saudi oil out of the sand, to the refinery, and then to market.  The Saudis would be made wealthy for their part, but those who financed Rockefeller (see: Central Banks, below) would control the deal.  And the Saud kingdom, powerless to excavate on their own, would sign related leases and concessions--and, in some cases, in perpetuity.

And Rockefeller would retain CONTROLLING INTEREST in each concession/lease signed. 

Yes, the Saudis got their financial stipend--enough to enlarge their tents, but the exchange was always controlled by Rockefeller, and dictated by Rockefeller's financiers, and handled through central banking systems established for the express purpose of controlling, managing and supervising such monetary and fiscal arrangements therein. 

"Through diplomacy by deception it seems the majors were able to induce governments to parcel out oil concessions to them, no matter who opposed it." [2]

In order to achieve a stable monetary mechanism and stability of currency, in October 1952 the government created the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency (SAMA). From its head-quarters in Riyadh and a network of offices spread across Saudi Arabia,  SAMA currently  manages the Saudi Kingdom's money supply and supervises its entire banking industry. (

But who brought enough $$$ to the table to centralize Saudi banking?

One of the clearest and most concise books ever written on the subjects of money and banking is G. Edward Griffin's book, "The Creature From Jekyll Island."

International bankers make money by extending credit to governments. The greater the debt of the political state, the larger the interest returned to the lenders. The national banks of Europe are actually owned and controlled by private interests. These same private interests can be demonstrated to own and control our Federal Reserve System. (Marrs, Jim. RULE BY SECRECY, HarperCollins Publishers, 2000.) 

Economic hardships/disaster has always left a country's people more receptive to outside economic intervention.  The populous cries for relief, for a financial "savior", and, then, ask yourself--who on earth always seems to have enough $$$$$$$$$$$ to offer such assistance?  

"By the 1820s, the Rothschilds had become the dominant banking family of Europe, controlling the fastest growing banking houses in France, England, Austria, Italy, and Germany. Operations in these countries were overseen by the five Rothschild brothers, each of whom controlled a different country. Those bankers who allied themselves with the Rothschilds (and subsequently the Masonic Order) became wealthy in their own right. Those who didn't would find the going rough."  (Kah, Gary H. EN ROUTE TO GLOBAL OCCUPATION. Huntington House Publishers, 1991)

This is not a conspiracy theory.  It is information anyone can access from any worthy encyclopedia. 

For example, Microsoft's Encarta (online) offers, in its "Origins of Banking" section, the following:

"Many of today's banking services were first practiced in ancient Lydia, Phoenicia, China, and Greece, where trade and commerce flourished. The temples in Babylonia made loans from their treasuries as early as 2000 bc. The temples of ancient Greece served as safe-deposit vaults for the valuables of worshipers. The Greeks also coined money and developed a system of credit. The Roman Empire had a highly developed banking system, and its bankers accepted deposits of money, made loans, and purchased mortgages. Shortly after the fall of Rome in ad 476, banking declined in Europe.

The increase of trade in 13th-century Italy prompted the revival of banking. The moneychangers of the Italian states developed facilities for exchanging local and foreign currency. Soon merchants demanded other services, such as lending money, and gradually bank services were expanded.

The first bank to offer most of the basic banking functions known today was the Bank of Barcelona in Spain. Founded by merchants in 1401, this bank held deposits, exchanged currency, and carried out lending operations. It also is believed to have introduced the bank check. Three other early banks, each managed by a committee of city officials, were the Bank of Amsterdam (1609), the Bank of Venice (1587), and the Bank of Hamburg (1619). These institutions laid the foundation for modern banks of deposit and transaction.

For more than 300 years, banking on the European continent was in the hands of powerful statesmen and wealthy private bankers, such as the Medici family in Florence and the Fuggers in Germany. During the 19th century, members of the Rothschild family became the most influential bankers in all Europe and probably in the world. This international banking family was founded by German financier Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1743-1812), but it soon spread to all the major European financial capitals."


"These supranational giants have expertise and accounting methods that have flummoxed the best brains in government, out of whose reach they remain." [3]

“At its zenith from the 1820s until the 1860s, this group had five distinct establishments. In addition to Nathan’s London, there was the original firm of M.A. Rothschild & Sons in Frankfurt…, which his eldest brother Amschel took over when their father Mayer Amschel died; the Rothschild Freres in Paris, founded by his youngest brother James; and two subsidiaries of the Frankfurt house, C.M. von Rothschild in Naples, run by the fourth of the brothers, Karl, and S.M. von Rothschild in Vienna, managed by the second born, Salomon. Up until the 1860s, the five houses worked together so closely that it is impossible to discuss the history of one without discussing the history of all five: they were, to all intents and purposes, the component parts of a multinational bank.”
(Ferguson, Niall. THE HOUSE OF ROTHSCHILD: MONEY'S PROPHETS 1798-1848, Penguine Bookes, 1998)

Hence, the European Rothschild (translated: "Red [Roth/Rote] Shield" [schild/shild]; See: origins Knights Templar & Freemasonry) empire and banking system soon morphed into our World Bank/IMF/Federal Reserve

For over a century such information has long been the subject of numerous books and articles.   Yet such information is not openly divulged in casual discussions of national economics or in polite society. 

Probably now is a good time to review our Webster's Dictionary definition of OCCULT...
....that which is, "hidden from view, concealed, as in occult blood; operating in secret (as in secret societies, fraternities)." 

And again, Webster's Student Dictionary defines OCCULT as, "Having to do with secret skills or powers that most people do not pretend to have."

How does this pertain to Rockefeller's Standard Oil? 

During the late 1800s, Rothschild money began to finance various American industrialists as well. Working through the Wall Street firms Kuhn, Loeb and Co. and J.P. Morgan Co., the Rothschilds financed John D. Rockefeller so that he could create the Standard Oil empire. They also financed the activities of Edward Harriman (railroads) and Andrew Carnegie (steel).

Mayer Amschel Rothschild was reported to have written, "Give me control of the economics of a country; and I care not who makes her laws." (Springmeier, Fritz, THE TOP 13 ILLUMINATI BLOODLINES, Portland, OR: Fritz Springmeier, 1995)

“Mr. R.E. McMaster, the publisher of a financial newsletter called ‘The Reaper,’ was able to determine who the Fed’s principal owners were through his Swiss and Saudi Arabian contacts. According to McMaster, the top eight stockholders are Rothschild Banks of London and Berlin; Lazard Brothers Banks of Paris; Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy; Warburg Bank of Paris; Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy; Warburg Bank of Hamburg and Amsterdam; Lehman Brothers Bank of New York; Chase Manhattan Bank of New York; and Goldman, Sachs Bank of New York. These interests own the Federal Reserve System through approximately three hundred stockholders, all of whom are known to each other and are sometimes related to one another.” (Kah, Gary H. EN ROUTE TO GLOBAL OCCUPATION. Huntington House Publishers, 1991.)

This is a giant private bank, which not only issues all money in the US, but underpins currency used for all international settlements and trading all commodities; i.e., the US dollar. It is THE central bank of the US that sets monetary policy. Notably, the Fed also handles all US Tax receipts - corporate, government and private. But please NOTE: the Federal Reserve is not actually part of our Federal Government. It is a privately held corporation owned by aprroximately 300 stockholders.

On  November 22, 1910--one year before the Sherman Anti Trust Act would cause the reorganization and ordering of one of the largest monopolies on earth, Standard Oil Trust--a group of six men quietly and surreptitiously entered a train car southward bound from NYC for a secret meeting scheduled to occur on Jekyll Island, off the coast of Georgia. Those who would attend would later be dubbed members of the Jekyll Island Club [1A], and as a result of their agreements, the world's financial and economic history would be rewritten, permanently altered.

Author and film producer, G. Edward Griffin, writes, "Centralization of control over financial resources was far advanced by 1910.  In the United States there were two main focal points of this control: the [J.P.] Morgan group and the [John D.] Rockefeller group. Within each orbit was a maze of commercial banks, acceptance banks, and investment firms. In Europe, the same process had proceeded even further and had coalesced into the Rothschild group and the Warburg group. [2A]

The New York Times was to later report that those six men comprising the 1910 Jekyll Island Club were said to have comprised one-sixth of the world's entire wealth. Excluding the European faction, Griffin observes that the NYT's original estimate was probably conservative. Since the six members of the Jekyll Islan Club represented four actual entities, Griffin is probably correct.

Griffin further writes; "The purpose of this meeting on Jekyll Island was not to hunt ducks. Simply stated, it was to come to an agreement on the structure and operation of a banking cartel. The goal of the cartel, as is true with all of them, was to maximize profits by minimizing competition between members, to make it difficult for new competitors to enter the field, and to utilizes the police power of the government to enforce the cartel agreement. In more specific terms, the purpose and, indeed, the actual outcome of this meeting was to create the blueprint for the Federal Reserve System." [3A]

In total, those six men represented those private investors who would maintain a monopoly on not only the world's wealth through centralized banking systems, but also maintain the controlling interest in the world's resources, including but not exclusive to, energy, transportation, communication, and the military industrial complex. Also, education and research. And--oh, yes--control over the respective (puppet) governments themselves.  For it would take whole governments and the appointed collection agents to insure that those original wealthy private investors (and their heirs and assigns) who established the Federal Reserve, would never be left empty-handed.

In the US, the Internal Revenue Service, or IRS, was subsequently established as its collection agent, that is, fire insurance agent against ultimate bankruptcy--not collection agent of the US government, but strong-armed enforcer for the Federal reserve.  And it would be the IRS who would perpetually muscle the American people, albeit illegally (yes, there is no law concerning) taxing wage earners (like the mafia charging to "protect") and securing the private property of those who couldn't or wouldn't pay, while overlooking large business(s), in order to cover the shareholders in the Fed.  Yes, it is indeed via loans and compounding interest rates--that is, usury--that those private investors are reimbursed, but it is out of taxpayers wages that the Fed itself remains insured of its solvency.  Eternally.  And it would be through perpetual control of governments and the news media that propaganda would be constantly generated to insure that workers pay taxes "to help the government pay off its debts".  And it would be through world banks such as the Fed that every country on earth, the globe itself, would be held in perpetual debt, through credit.

Because of the way the Reserve was organized, whoever controls the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, controls the system.  Not surprisingly, Rockefeller interests are among the largest held. It is believed, however, that the Rothschilds, hold 53% of the stock of the U.S. Federal Reserve. And Rothschild's (Nathan M. Rothschild & Sons et al) descendants still meet twice daily in London to dictate to the world what the price of gold will be...  (

As word of discovered oil spread around the globe during the early part of the twentieth century, so followed Rockefeller's apparent availablility to enable subsequent oil production, refining and distribution, undeterred.  As Rothschild sought to quietly control world finances, Rockefeller too must have known that any country that controls energy and transportation, could eventually control the world.  He also knew he would need power over communication as well, both to supress the truth of his energy monopoly from getting out, and to prevent the public from finding out that those countries that would be beneficial for us to demonize (terrorists, communists),  were really under our control all along.  For Rockefeller had made them dependent upon American companies--many controlled by Rockefeller--for energy, transportation and communication. (See definition; "Puppet government", below.)

Our possession of such commodities was to be protected AT ALL COSTS, too, from enemies both foreign and domestic, even though the Saudi oil fields are now apparently controlled by Saudi's oil giant, ARAMCO--the burning question is WHO is ARAMCO, really?

Wikipedia defines ARAMCO:
"Saudi Aramco (Saudi Arabian Oil Company) is one of the largest oil companies in the world, and the largest in terms of proven crude oil reserves and production. Located in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, this company controls the world's largest oil reserve. Saudi Aramco also operates the world's largest single hydrocarbon network, the Master Gas System. "

Saudi Aramco's history dates back to May 29, 1933, when the government of Saudi Arabia signed a concessionary agreement with Standard Oil of California (Socal), Standard of NY, Standard of New Jersey,  and Texasco, allowing them to exploit Saudi Arabia for oil.

Standard Oil of California passed this concession to an affiliate called California-Arabian Standard Oil Co. (CASOC).

In 1936 with the company having no success at locating oil, the Texas Oil Company purchased a fifty percent stake of the concession." (

The company name was changed in 1944 from California-Arabian Standard Oil Company to Arabian American Oil Company (or ARAMCO).

In 1948 Standard Oil of California and the Texas Oil Company were joined as investors by Standard Oil of New Jersey who purchased 30% of the company, and Socony Vacuum who purchased 10% of the company, leaving Standard Oil of California and the Texas Oil Company with equal 30% shares.

In November 1988 the company changed its name from Arabian American Oil Company to Saudi Arabian Oil Company (or Saudi ARAMCO).

As I stated, the Rockefeller family, however, retained controlling interest in ARAMCO. 

FYI, In 2000, Texaco and Shell Oil merged to form Motiva Enterprises LLC (Shell/Texaco/Saudi. Refining) and Equilon Entreprises LLC (Shell/Texaco). (

And, in reality, the Saudi Royal Family is but a "puppet government"; sustained, that is, until they buck the system that runs them.

So, why, then, does the US sell weapons of mass destruction (see; US Senator Donald Riegle's 1994 Report on US Biological Weapons & Shipments to Iraq/Iran) to other Arab countries, only to turn around and declare war on them for allegedly possessing materials necessary to make nuclear weapons and other WMD's?

Why, to make a profit, of course, and--most importantly--to keep them in line.

Who will be our next "enemy"?

What does the American public truly know about what goes on in the oil politics of Saudi Arabia et al?

From :

"[The author is] often asked why it is that the American domestic petroleum industry, once so bustling and full of promise, went into a steep decline.

The answer, in one word, is GREED.  For this reason, domestic production of oil had to be curtailed, in case the public should ever discover what was going on. This knowledge is much more difficult to obtain when dealing with foreign operations. "

Even while making record profits, the petroleum industry demands and gets additional tax breaks, both open -- and hidden from public view...

Have the citizens of the United States benefited from the record profits made by Exxon, Texaco, Chevron and Mobil (before it was sold)?

The answer is no, because most of the profit was made "upstream" -- that is, outside of the United States, which is where the profits were kept, non-taxable, while U.S. consumer paid ever-rising prices for gas at the pumps. . . . (The Industry can be divided into two broad themes: Upstream producers and Downstream transporters -- tanker, Pipeline transport, refiners, retailers, and consumers).

Who were Rockefeller's "Seven Sisters", again?

"In secret, [Rockefeller's] Seven Sisters club has plotted wars and decided amongst themselves which governments must bow to their depredations.  When trouble arises ... it is only a matter of calling upon the right air force, navy, intelligence service to solve the problem and get rid of the 'nuisance . . .' " [3]
And yet, as quick as one could blink, Standard Oil Trust's original "Seven Sisters" have now consolidated to four.

But, for God's sake, don't look behind the curtain...

"...I was in a market yesterday, waiting behind one woman to check out, and she was telling the store owner than she had just gotten back from a month in Europe and she was positively gushing that there was no place like the United States and she and her husband were so glad to get home. They had decided that, in the future, when they came into contact with people who criticized the US, they would simply not talk to them. The owner agreed that was very smart. Don't listen, just ignore them. I was positively fuming and thinking that is the dumbest thing I have ever heard! Put your head in the sand and don't even wonder why many, many people are concerned and downright frightened at the direction and actions of this country.

Rothschilds and the Grail Bloodline
by (author and historian) David Livingstone

Jacob Rothschild, the current head of the Rothschild dynasty, has intermarried with the Sinclair family, forging an important dynastic alliance between the head family of the Illuminati, and the supposed descendants of the Grail family. 

As has been popularized recently by Dan Brown in the Da Vinci Code, or before him by the Holy Blood Holy Grail, the Sinclairs are an important Grail family affiliated with the Stuarts of Scotland, who are supposedly descended from King Arthur and Jesus Christ.  These families are of course not descended from Jesus.  The idea is preposterous.  But they are related to the Holy Grail, and they are not Christians, but Kabbalists.

In reality, they, like all the aristocratic bloodlines that form the core of the Illuminati, are descended from Guillaume de Gellone of the eighth century AD.  Guillame’s father was Rabbi Makhir, among the Exilarchs who ruled the Jews in Baghdad, who was sent West after a dispute over the successorship.  In France, he took the name Theoderic, married Alda, the aunt of Charlemagne, and was appointed “King of the Jews” in the region of the Languedoc, with his capital the city of Narbonne.

Narbonne then became the heartland of the Medieval Kabbalah.  The Kabbalists of Narbonne seem to have been responsible for instigating the Crusades, in order to retrieve sacred texts that had been burried beneath the Temple of Jerusalem, but which had been innaccessible because of first the rule of the Romans, and then the Muslims.  Once Jerusalem was conquered, a Kabbalistic order of knights known as the Templars conducted excavations, and discovered the text of the Sepher ha Bahir, which revived the lost mystical tradition, and set off the cultural revolution of the Midieval Kabbalah.

Another aspect of the penetration of these Kabbalistic ideas was the heresy of the Cathars.  The Cathar foothold was in the region of Tolouse, the bastion of the descendants of Guillame, also known as the family of the Guilhemids, several of whom were ardent defenders of the heresy.  However, the Cathars have been idealized by numerous Illuminati propagandists as having been innocent victims of Church persecutions, but the Cathars rejected the God of the Bible, in favour of the worship of Lucifer and practiced withcraft.  It was the Cathars who influenced the heretical aspects of the Templars, for which the order was disbanded in 1307.

Part of this Kabbalistic revolution were the legends of the Holy Grail, which were formulated in the region of Aquitaine, another stronghold of the Guilhelmids.  The Holy Grail, or San Greal, should have been translated as Sang Real, or Royal Blood, because it referred to the sacred bloodline that supposedly issued from Guillame de Gellone, and utlimately King David, but which in reality, was understood to represent the descendants of the Fallen Angels, and their leader, Lucifer.

The Sinclairs were descendants of Guillaume de Gellone, through his great-great-grandaughter, Poppa of Bavaria, who married the Viking leader, Rollo Ragnvaldsson.  Among Rollo’s descendants were William the Conqueror of Normandy.  The Sinclairs, or St. Clair, were given various other castles around France.  However, they all went to England with the Conqueror.  One Sinclair, though, named William, did not like the Conqueror, so with some other discontented barons, he went to Scotland and placed himself in the service of King Malcolm III of Scotland.

Malcolm III King of Scotland was the father of David I “the Saint” King of Scotland.  In 1128, soon after the Council of Troyes, Hugh de Payens, the Templars’ first Grand Master, met with King David I of Scotland.  King David later surrounded himself with Templars, and appointed them as “the Guardians of his morals by day and night”. 

David married the grand-daughter of Lambert II, the brother of Godfroi de Bouillon, leader of the first crusade, and the sister of William the Conqueror.  Godfroi’s younger brother, Eustace III, married David’s sister, Mary Scots.  Their daughter married Stephen I King of England, the son of Adela of Normandie, daughter of William the Conquerer.  Adela’s brother, Henry I King of England, married David’s sister, Editha of Scotland.  Their daughter, Mathilda Empress of England, married Geoffrey V Plantagenet, Comte d’Anjou, of the Guilhemids, whose son Henry II, married Eleanor of Aquitaine.

King David granted Hugues and his knights the lands of Ballantradoch, by the Firth of Forth, but now renamed Temple, near the site of Rosslyn.  And, legend has it that, when the Templars came under trial, their leader de Molay arranged for the Templars to return to Scotland, where they assisted Robert the Bruce at the Battle of Bannockburn.

Robert the Bruce claimed the Scottish throne as a great-great-great-great grandson of David.  Walter Stewart, the sixth High Steward of Scotland, also played an important part in the Battle of Bannockburn.  Walter Stewart then married Majory, daughter of Robert the Bruce, and their son Robert II of Scotland was heir to the House of Bruce; and eventually inherited the Scottish throne after his uncle David II of Scotland died.

In Scotland, the Templars served Robert the Bruce as members of the Scots Guard, of which two prominent families were those of the Stuarts and the Sinclairs.  Henry Sinclair was a supporter of Robert the Bruce, and one of his descendants, William Sinclair, designed Rosslyn Chapel, a church in the village of Roslin, replete with occult symbolism, and believed to be one of the sites where the Grail might be buried.  Finally, the Sinclairs became the Hereditary Grand Masters of the Masons of Scotland.

After Queen Elizabeth died without an heir, she was succeded by the son of Mary Queen of Scots, James Stewart I of England, also known as King James.  It is for this reason that the Freemasons of the eighteenth century conspired to back the Stuart cause, after their last monarch, James II Stuart, King of England, was deposed, and replaced by William of Orange.  The Stuart cause then became the essence of Scottish Rite Freemasonry, which regarded the Stuarts as the inheritors of the Templars, who had rescued the secret tradition of the East, otherwise known as the Kabbalah.

Since the late eighteenth century, however, the Illuminati has come under the leadership of the Rothschild family.  The founder of the dynasty, Mayer Amschel Rothschild, ordered his sons to marry only their first cousins, continuing the careful intermarrying practiced by their predecessors.

However, the first exception was Hannah, the daughter of Amschel Mayer’s son, the notorious Nathan Mayer Rothschild, who married the Rt. Hon. Henry Fitzroy, a direct descendant of Charles II Stuart King of England, the father of James II.

More recently, however, is the great-great-great grandson of Nathan Mayer, Nathaniel Charles Jacob Rothschild, 4th Baron Rothschild, who married Mary Serena Dunn.  The mother of Mary Serena was Lady Mary Sybil St. Clair-Erksine, who was the daughter of James Francis Harry St. Clair-Erskine, 5th Earl of Rosslyn. 

Jacob Rothschild is the current head of the UK Rothschild family, having inherited the fourth baronetcy from his father, Victor, an eminent zoologist, and sometime MI5 agent and friend of KGB agents Anthony Blunt and Guy Burgess.  Jacob resigned from the family’s bank NM Rothschilds in 1980, run by his cousin Evelyn, and started RIT Capital Partners. 

Jacob Rothschild is chairman of Yad Hanadiv, the Rothschild foundation, which chairs the Jewish Policy Research, dedicated to promoting issues affecting Jews worldwide.  Yad Hanadiv was also responsible for building and granting the Knesset government buildings, and the Supreme Court of Israel, which prominently features Masonic symbolism and the pyramid and all-seeing eye of the Illuminati.

Jacob was a close personal friend of Princess Diana, and maintains strong personal and business links with Henry Kissinger.  He knows Rupert Murdoch well, having been friends since the Australian newspaper proprietor first came to the UK in the 1960s.  His country estate has been a regular venue for visiting heads of state including Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton.  Margaret Thatcher received French President François Mitterrand there at a summit in 1990.  He hosted the European Economic Round Table conference in 2002, attended by such figures as James Wolfensohn, president of the World Bank, Nicky Oppenheimer, Warren Buffet and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

From a pal in Pittsburgh, August 21, I received the following a propo quote:

"Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power."
    --Benito Mussolini

On August 19, from friend, renowned poet, Thom the World Poet:
Subject: "Blessed by Your Bravery"

we are blessed with your bravery
there is only truth
and song
and lines of birds
etching temporary skin skies
there is only here
and now
and you ,and eye
and what is
and what might be
there is only art,and song,music and dance
independent and autonomous signs
of life and its transitory promises-
we are here(together)
on one small blue globe
we cannot get off
we barely stay on
all around -
what we cannot beam out
we must let in /within
dreaming the impossible
brings it ever closer
there is only...
and it seems...enough...
             --THOM AUGUST 19,2005

1. See Snopes site for background on this quote including: The quote cited above does not appear in transcripts of the Nuremberg trials because although Goering spoke these words during the course of the proceedings, he did not offer them at his trial. His comments were made privately to Gustave Gilbert, a German-speaking intelligence officer and psychologist who was granted free access by the Allies to all the prisoners held in the Nuremberg jail. Gilbert kept a journal of his observations of the proceedings and his conversations with the prisoners, which he later published in the book Nuremberg Diary. The quote offered above was part of a conversation Gilbert held with a dejected Hermann Goering in his cell on the evening of 18 April 1946, as the trials were halted for a three-day Easter recess:
