Who Really Runs the World? Conspiracies, Hidden Agendas & the Plan for World Government

So, who runs the world? It’s a question that people have struggled with since people began to struggle. It’s certainly a question with many interpretations, and incites answers of many varied perspectives.

Often, it is relegated to the realm of “conspiracy theory,” in that, those who discuss this question or propose answers to it, are purveyors of a conspiratorial view of the world. However, it is my intention to discard the labels, which seek to disprove a position without actually proving anything to the contrary. One of these labels – “conspiracy theorist” – does just that: it’s very application to a particular perspective or viewpoint has the intention of “disproving without proof;” all that is needed is to simply apply the label.

What I intend to do is analyse the social structure of the transnational ruling class, the international elite, who together run the world. This is not a conspiratorial opinion piece, but is an examination of the socially constructed elite class of people; what is the nature of power, how does it get used, and who holds it?

In answering the question “Who Runs the World?” we must understand what positions within society hold the most power, and thus, the answer becomes clear. If we simply understand this as heads of state, the answer will be flawed and inaccurate. We must examine the globe as a whole, and the power structures of the global political economy.

The greatest position of power within the global capitalist system lies in the authority of money-creation: the central banking system. The central banking system, originating in 1694 in England, consists of an international network of central banks that are privately owned by wealthy shareholders and are granted governmental authority to print and issue a nation’s currency, and set interest rates, collecting revenue and making profit through the interest charged. Central banks give loans to both governments and industries, controlling both simultaneously. The ultimate centre of power in the central banking system is at the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), in Basle, Switzerland; which is the central bank to the world’s central banks, and is also a private bank owned by the world’s central banks.

As Georgetown University history professor Carroll Quigley wrote:

[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. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations.1

The central banks, and thus the central banking system as a whole, is a privately owned system in which the major shareholders are powerful international banking houses. These international banking houses emerged in tandem with the evolution of the central banking system. The central banking system first emerged in London, and expanded across Europe with time. With that expansion, the European banking houses also rose and expanded across the continent.

The French Revolution resulted with Napoleon coming to power, who granted the French bankers a central bank of France, which they privately controlled.2 It was also out of the French Revolution that one of the major banking houses of the world emerged, the Rothschilds. Emerging out of a European Jewish ghetto, the Rothschilds quickly rose to the forefront in banking, and established banking houses in London, Paris, Frankfurt, Vienna and Naples, allowing them to profit off of all sides in the Napoleonic wars.3

As Carroll Quigley wrote in his monumental Tragedy and Hope, “The merchant bankers of London had already at hand in 1810-1850 the Stock Exchange, the Bank of England, and the London money market,” and that:

In time they brought into their financial network the provincial banking centres, organised as commercial banks and savings banks, as well as insurance companies, to form all of these into a single financial system on an international scale which manipulated the quantity and flow of money so that they were able to influence, if not control, governments on one side and industries on the other.4

Final Conflict 2012? Engineering World War III

20121001-191750.jpg

By Adrian SALBUCHI, NewDawn magazine

In today’s increasingly interdependent and interactive world, every action has a myriad of causes, meanings, objectives and reactions; many visible, many invisible. Some, openly admitted and declared; others no one would dare confess.

When trying to come to grips with the many complex conflicts going on in the world and the dizzying pace at which they transpire, it would be a mistake to approach them in isolation. Only a “holistic” bird’s eye view gives us the picture of where we are and, more importantly, whereto we are being dragged.

21st century geopolitics cannot be understood applying a silo mentality. Syria’s civil war, Egypt’s “Arab Spring,” the destruction of Libya and Iraq, growing China, crippled Japan, the Eurozone crisis, America’s “missile shield” in Poland, Iran’s nuclear program, the coming Latin American “Spring…” Approached haphazardly, the picture we get is one of utter chaos. Approached applying the right model of interpretation, we begin to see how things interrelate, react and move in obedience to extremely powerful and dynamic – albeit, mostly invisible – forces silently driving today’s world.

Don’t (just) Read the Newspapers…

Optical Illusion of the Globalists: Al-Qaeda Attacking US Embassies Across the World

20120919-185210.jpg

By Susanne Posel, Activist Post

On September 15th, Obama stated in his weekly address that the US “must also send a clear and resolute message to the world: those who attack our people will find no escape from justice.”

Obama asserts that:

We are in contact with governments around the globe, to strengthen our cooperation, and underscore that every nation has a responsibility to help us protect our people. We have moved forward with an effort to see that justice is done for those we lost, and we will not rest until that work is done.

US Embassies across the globe are coming under attack with coordinated efforts by the CIA-controlled al-Qaeda. In Sydney, Australia, 8 plants are being charged with inciting and participating in violent clashes with police and protesters at a rally sparked by the US-sponsored anti-Islamic film that is being blamed for this sudden uprising in the Islamic world.

Rothschilds’ BCCI Shake Down of Arabs

(Excerpted from Chapter 6: The Bank of Crooks & Criminals International: Big Oil & Their Bankers in the Persian Gulf…)

By Dean Henderson, LEFT HOOK

The Black Network

The Bank of Credit & Commerce International’s (BCCI) most notorious acts were hatched out of its Karachi branch, where the bank’s Black Network (BN) operated. BN was a global intelligence and enforcement unit that specialized in transporting arms, drugs and gold. BN operations overlapped with the operations of CIA, Israeli Mossad, the Pakistani ISI and Saudi intelligence, all of whom had accounts at BCCI. BN served as middleman for Saudi aid to both the Nicaraguan contras and the Afghan mujahadeen, aid which was being solicited by Richard Secord. [1]

BN worked extensively with the Israeli Mossad to coordinate Israeli arms deals, especially to Arab countries. Saudi billionaire Adnan Khashoggi was often at the middle of these deals, along with Manucher Gorbanifar, the former SAVAK agent for the Shah of Iran, whose prowess in the fine arts of torture had landed him a job at Mossad.

Challenging the Globalists: Solving Syria at the Root of the Problem

Solving problems means first understanding them.

By Tony Cartalucci, Land Destroyer for Infowars.com

As difficult as it might be for some to believe, Syria’s problem is not violence, armed insurrection, or political upheaval. Neither is it economic or social. These are but symptoms, many purposefully induced from abroad, of Syria’s real problem, and therefore any solution aimed at treating only these symptoms will provide only but the most superficial and temporary relief.

Many geopolitical analysts know this, and yet champion for the immediate treatment of these symptoms, particularly the end of violence, which makes perfect sense in a sense of “triage,” but will ultimately fail if the root of the problem is not also exposed and a solution for “digging it out” not formulated and appropriately promoted.

The Problem

Syria’s problem is not the “Free Syrian Army” nor the “Syrian National Council,” nor the myriad of terrorist organizations operating under this umbrella – but rather the corporate-financier driven foreign interests that created them, fund them, arm them, and both tactically and politically perpetuate their activities. Syria’s problem is that it has attracted the attention of Wall Street and London and found itself in the middle of their geopolitical aspirations for global hegemony.

New EU ‘Army’ on the Ground in Somalia and Afghanistan

20120525-084815.jpg

By A.M. FREYED, AmericanFreed

Mystery Surrounds European Union Raid in Somalia … All is not apparently as it seems with the story of the raid. The European website DefenseReport claims that the Haradheere raid was carried out not by helicopters, but by actual EU troops on the ground. If true, this would mark a new, dramatically different approach … – EdsWorld (5/15/12)

Since December 2008, the EU has kept five to 10 warships off the Horn of Africa in an operation known as Atalanta. NATO has a similar anti-piracy flotilla known as Ocean Shield, and other countries — including the United States, India, China, Russia, and Malaysia — also have dispatched naval vessels to patrol the region … – AP (5/15/12)

Others points on Mr Hollande’s agenda include … plans to promote wider EU defence co-operation, including the prospect of a Euro Army long resisted by Britain. [He] will also argue that EU countries should abandon austerity measures to boost growth. – Daily Mail (5/17/12)

FAREWELL PARADE FOR AFGHANISTAN SOLDIERS OF HQ EUROCORPS … Due to the deployment of Eurocorps soldiers to Afghanistan from beginning of January 2012 to January 2013, the Deputy and Acting Commander of Eurocorps, Major General Walter Spindler, will give a Farewell Parade on 4 January 2012 for the soldiers. – Eurocorps.org (12/21/11)

EU ground troops have reportedly been employed in an attack on Somalia. The occasion was a raid against Somali pirates and EU helicopters were used as well.

Didn’t know that the EU had an army? Welcome to the 21st century.

Not only may the EU have placed troops on the ground in Somalia, but “Eurocorps” – the EU’s standing army based in Strasbourg – has headed over to Afghanistan for a one-year stint.

NWO AGENDA: Dutch Royal Family Member Calls For Compulsory Birth Control For The “Unfit”

20120515-193253.jpg

By Jurriaan Maessen, Infowars.com

In an episode of an investigative television program Zembla that aired yesterday on Dutch national television, Pieter van Vollenhoven- queen Beatrix’ son-in-law- called for forced birth control for people with drug addiction, psychiatric patients and other people deemed unfit to reproduce.

As head of the Dutch Safety Board, Van Vollenhoven investigated several cases in which children were abused at a young age. After concluding that “the government is not sufficiently capable of delivering on its responsibility to ensure the safety of young children in the age group 0 to 12 within the home”, Van Vollenhoven went on to propose a classical eugenic solution:

Bilderberg 2012: Secret Conclave Site Found

• Bilderberg group will meet in Chantilly, Va. in late May
• Tucker heads to Memphis to attend two patriot rallies

20120511-182032.jpg

By James P. Tucker Jr., American Free Press for the IntelHub

MEMPHIS—Hundreds of patriots were on hand for two consecutive rallies held in Memphis on April 27, one at noon and one in the evening. Many pledged to bring busloads of other like-minded advocates for American sovereignty to Chantilly, Va. on the weekend of May 31 – June 3 to protest the annual meeting of the secretive Bilderberg group being held there.

Bilderberg will meet in Chantilly at the Westfields Marriott, a short distance from Dulles International Airport, some 30 miles outside Washington, D.C. Bilderberg previously met there in 2002 and then again in 2008.

A gathering of high-level figures from the elite ranks of global finance and industry in the self-interested sphere of influence of the plutocratic Rothschild and Rockefeller families, Bilderberg works to direct the course of world affairs, unimpeded by popular concerns, rightly raising the hackles of the kind of good patriots who gathered in Memphis.

Globalists Pull Plug on #StopKony 2012 with Spectacular Crash & Burn

The ravaging of Africa will still proceed as scheduled.
by Tony Cartalucci ( Land Destroyer )

March 17, 2012 – Over the past week, as Invisible Children and their corporate sponsors performed desperate damage control, ties between the alleged “charity” and the US State Department, Wall Street speculator George Soros and his Open Society Institute, and a myriad of corporate-funded foundations began surfacing and spreading just as quickly as their documentary Kony 2012 rose to fame.

Image: (via Infowars) A visual representation of Invisible Children's true backers and master minds. They will gladly shed their front group in the name of self-preservation and making a clean escape.

Perhaps most importantly, the term AFRICOM began gaining wider notoriety as did the mission of AFRICOM – the neo-colonial plundering of all of Africa. And as this single backfiring propaganda stunt threatened to unhinge a continent-spanning corporate-military industrial campaign, the plug was abruptly pulled with news of Invisible Children’s director Jason Russell being arrested for lewd behavior in public.
