Conspiracy Theater

THE EMERGENCE OF A EURO-AMERICAN OLIGARCHY

As most of you are aware, I hold the view that much of western history may be viewed as a kind of oligarchical "conspiracy," though that is a loaded and highly problematical term. But it is perhaps a better viewpoint than the bland assurances of modern western historiography that the historical process is much too complex to be reduced to conspiracies. I agree. It is. But that doesn't mean there aren't people in every generation willing to try. If you think that, then you're simply ignoring the work of academics like James H. Billington (Fire in the Minds of Men), or Carroll Quigley(The Anglo-American Establishment; Tragedy and Hope), or even C. Wright Mills (The Power Elite).  With those men in mind, I have no difficulty entertaining the possibility that it may be older than the oldest Enlightenment roots posited by Billington.

In that context, then, consider this from that American right-wing magazine, The New American:

Transatlantic Danger: U.S.-EU Merger Talks Underway in D.C.

Now normally I do not like to such sources, but here I do so because of the interesting list presented in the article, and for the thesis. First, the list:

Sierra Club

Friends of the Earth

Humane Society of the U.S./ Humane Society International

Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch

AFL-CIO

Consumer Federation of America

Public Citizen's Global Access to Medicines Program

Center for Science in the Public Interest

U.S. Chamber of Commerce

National Manufacturing Association

American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers

Grocery Manufacturers Association

Computer & Communications Industry Association

American Association of Exporters & Importers

This list is accompanied by the usual anti-left commentary that one would expect from a right-wing publication, but this is not my concern here. My concern is the thesis being advocated:

"While many of the players in this supposedly diverse cast will hold clashing opinions on a multitude of issues, they tend to agree on one fundamental issue: global governance, which is merely a euphemism for global government. The one side wants to see a global regime that would enforce global environmental and social policy, while the other seeks the alleged benefits of a global regime that would make regulations uniform and easier for businesses to navigate."

Now I am no friend to the end of national sovereignties nor to globaloney. If you think your government leviathan is unresponsive now, just wait until it goes global.  My quibble here is that we may not be looking so much as an attempt to create a global federal government, but rather, under the cover of that, to perpetuate and expand the power of the post-Cold War Anglo-American unipolar world and its oligarchy. And the real goal, it would seem to me, is less about achieving a global government, than it is about maintaining Europe as a firmly and closely held "ally" of the USA, i.e., to make it even more a puppet client than it is now, by a vast "Americanization" of its regulatory policies, laws, patents, and so on, a process my co-author in Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas and I noted with the expansion of American concepts in patent law into the World Trade Organization, the very concepts giving agribusiness corporate giants a heavy advantage in those markets adhering to such standards.

It is, in a way, an old game: that of making everyone "speak the same language," creating a kind of Tower of Babel Moment of History. The real question posed by such an observation is obvious: Why is it so necessary to do so? Weren't we interdependent before? Why the need for absolute uniformity, which inevitably dooms such schemes? I suspect that the answer may lie in the various versions of the legends associated with our previous arrival at such a stage in history.

See you on the flip side.

  1. The term I use is FedGov.Inc.. Where the domain suffix runs the show. The Anglosphere has been able to hide untold amounts of wealth and technology. They’ve had Nicola Tesla’s work for over 100 years and there is credible evidence, that fiber optics, IC chips, etc. were gained from Roswell and other off world liaisons. The Internet only gives us the tip of the iceberg. Their stranglehold on the Western economy is complete via all of the defacto monopolies in every address space. Ron Paul and Ralph Nader should do an interview where the say “Told you so.:” FedGov.Inc lives in mortal fear of the sheeple awakening. So, it will be interesting to see just how bad / good it gets in the next few mos.

  2. When one talks about oligarchy and elites, we naturally think of the Rottenchilds and Rockafailures, however I now believe that there are others to be included in these lists.

    And who I am talking about are the royal houses and families, Kings and Queens, that still exist today. UK, Holland, Denmark etc, all of the European aristocracy.

    It is known that the Annunaki appointed Kings for certain territories, and in my opinion, they did this to continue the “serfdom and slavery” agenda. So in essence, this oligarchy, behind the scenes, is still performing the “cover up” of our true hidden history, albeit covertly.

    1. There are defintitely those they can afford to be “invisible”. The last thing “they” want is exposure. It is like sunshine to a vampire: life threatening.

  3. Dr.Farrell hits the nail again. The history of the “West” is exactly that: a conspiracy to take over the world by an oligarchy. The real question is: who really is that oligarchy? They are not the keepers of the Holy Grail (you have my word!) although they masquerade as such. Atlanticism goes a long way back, perhaps even to the Bronze Age. Think of the “Peoples of the Sea” whose “migration” towards Egypt and Levant could well have originated in Western Europe (a forerunner of the Crusades). It is a hypothesis, of course, but made extremely plausible by the completely neglected work of Iman Jakob Wilkens “Where Troy once stood”. Real Troy was in England and the anti-Troyan coalition was in fact a motley of seafaring peoples on the fringes of Northern and Western Europe (the forerunners of the Vikings!).
    Consider also the insidious but continuous judaization of the “Western” Church and the birth of the alliance between the European aristocracy of warriors (and pirates and robbers) and the Jewish financial “aristocracy”.
    Think of “British Israel” also. Still alive and kicking!

  4. “It is, in a way, an old game: that of making everyone “speak the same language,””
    Telepathic communication between not only different groups of terrestrial beings but with extraterrestrial beings as well could be described as “speak the same language”.
    “creating a kind of Tower of Babel Moment of History”
    which leads us to “Yahweh the two faced god” of the Old Testament, and to the “Yahweh-like” Babylonian god Marduk.

    “The Great Chieftain of the Bow Clan led the faithful ones to this new land, but he fell into evil ways. His two sons scolded him for his mistake, and after he died they assumed the responsibilities of leadership. Each brother was given a set of Tiponi, and both were instructed to carry them to a place to which the Great Spirit directed them.”
    According to Hopi version of the “Tower of Babel Moment”, immediately after the “Great flood”, the predecessor of these tribes “fell into evil ways”, the descendant tribes then corrected their forefathers mistakes by following the teachings of the “Great Spirit”. Suggesting the very event of “Great flood” may had something to do with “fell into evil ways”. The rivalry between “evil” and “Great Spirit” probably existed in the pre-flood world, that it was a continued conflict into the fourth world of the Hopi. Hence, the identity of “evil” as well as “Great Spirit” is crucial for understanding the nature of such conflict between the two opposing factions. Graham Hancock’s “Entangled” may have provided us with a clue to what “evil” is really about. If true, the match up for “the Great Spirit” would be “universal consciousness” or “singularity”.

    1. This “Universal Consciousness” is the Divine Frequency. This is the “Image” of God in which man is conceived. The Prime Mover intends that we be attuned to & act in accordance with His Frequency or schematic for creation, thus “knowing” Him, the Active Creative Principle.

      The word atonement simply means to attune – to be at-one-with, i.e., at-one-ment. The Corporate State, which often includes organized religion, seeks to intervene & interfere with man’s Divine attunement. The entire universe is both within & of the Master Conceptualizer or Prime Mover simultaneously. All is held & defined in form or “existence” by specific individualized frequencies.

      1. There is something here, advanced physics, that manipulates us into petty discussions, while they go about business.

        On the bright side, we have better technology. on the down side bad humans hold us back…….anyone here figured out the true purpose of the pyramids yet?

        1. Yes, the Brits have experience with RED-herrings don’t they? A part of the fox hunt aren’t they? Nothing to smell here. Like the magician’s slight of hand, look over there not here. The key is to pick the critical issues & remain focused in the midst of a school of red-herrings. “Red” herrings & Left-Wing regressive Collectivism appear birds-of-a-feather, non?

      2. “It has been said, death was instituted by the Creator so as to place limits on evil. This is why they’re always trying to achieve physical immortality.”

        This is what you said in another blog. I’ve always wondered why they created mankind the way we are now as mortal beings, yet ancient traditions teach us about “life after death” and “immortality”? You just give me a very plausible explanation to the question.

        That’s what i’ve found out after rewatching “National treasure” movie. Gates and his friends entered the crypt with no way out because of those greedy theives who were after the physical wealth. Yet, when the virtuous and determined ones eventually find the treasures of the Templar knights, they also find the starway to get out of their demise, Gates and his friends break out the crypt to escape certain doom. Symbolically presented, they’ve been through “death” but the treasures of the Templar knights “resurrected” them.
        The real “treasure” thus is “never really died”, in other words “immortality”.
        So i start to wonder, is that “the National treasure” of America? To enlighten humanity with the lost knowledge of ancient Egypt? To keep our bond with the Divine Frequency? Then i can understand why dark forces has to destroy all that is “Egypt”.

    2. Henry, I read and enjoyed “Entangled”, and because I’d read so much history, the brutality didn’t shock me. But if I got it right, evil is not necessarily whether people kill and be killed but by some morality that makes you choose the higher path. This was brought out well by the the main female parts.

      They both caught on to the Divine Frequency?

      1. Hi DaphneO
        Thanks to Dr.Farrell, i’ve been listening to Catherine Austin Fitts. She often speaks of a group called “Spiritual Frontier Foundation International”, so i checked their website out and find an interesting article “Man After Death is in a Complete Human Form”
        http://www.theisticscience.org/books/hh/hh47.html

        The reason i find the article interesting is that it reminds me of the ancient belief that there are two forms of existence after death of a mortal, one is the “cloud-like” form and the other one is the “light” form.
        -You can check out these Youtube videos with the following titles,
        -I Ching, Key Learning Experiences #4, The Identity of the Sage
        Ancient Aliens S03E14 – Aliens and the Undead Pt 3
        (@5:55-9:15)
        In her “near death experience”, Jessica Haynes encountered two beings which are neither female nor male, but pure energies, energy that look like “angel”, i incline to think its the Western equivalent for the Taoist immortal called “feathered man”.
        In Buddhist terms, these are “Buddhas” or enlightened beings, according to the Buddhist teaching everyone has “Buddha” nature that is “the true Self”.

        Since you’ve also read Graham Hancock’s “Entangled”, you can check out a youtube video titled “Kesha: The Satanic Cult Leader”, and also have a look at “Dancing With The Devil” lyrics by Kesha. You’ll notice something very similar to that of young Leoni’s experience, the only difference is Leoni was saved by the “blue angel”, a spirit of feminine principle she encountered in altered state of consciousness. I’ve proposed an idea that these psychedelic experiences may have to do with a torsion field highway that carries information from “Heaven” to the human consciousness. In “Law of One” it is referred as “intelligent energy” which is linked to the realm housing the Akashic Records, probably “the spirit world” that keeps the record of Leoni’s life too.

  5. The EU/Nato was a scheme devised to contain Germany. And in realty the scheme has been a disaster for AngloAmerican Elites. Now we have another bigger scheme to once again contain “Europe”. At this rate, the Germans are going to take over the English speaking world without firing a shot. They already got a Airforce base over in America. Just wait till German manufacturing takes us over state by state. That will be easy since all American manufacturing has left the country. EU redux revisited. Americans maybe the New Greeks.

  6. Quick question for Doc (or anyone)

    The pyramids at giza face north….yet the mag north pole has moved into russia….and on the south side massive melting of the…uh forget his name field.

    How is this possible?

  7. Aryans ran the old world order, the chinese try to cover up that genetic fact, and take credit for its achievments.

    Hadrians wall was a staging point of recovering the “GODS” land.

    They didnt know how the GODS children knew so much, started drinking there blood, and all sorts of GAMES, and yet ….the mernepater is still a force to be reckoned with.

    1. “It is, in a way, an old game: that of making everyone “speak the same language,””

        It’s called “human sacrifice culture” which occured in ancient China as well. Guess what, the slaves the Shang elites captured and used for human sacrifice from neighboring tribes are essentially genetically related to the Chinese.

      2. I suppose, some who tune into “their” wave length, never return. The signpost up ahead(think twilight zone), is written in a language, so that when your able to tune into it, your literally tuned-out, from where you once belonged.

  8. That’s “Elizabeth Magie Phillips” as the conceptualizer of Monopoly & its plagiarized original The Landlord’s game. The Landlord’s Game was first conceived to convey the economic philosophy of American born Henry George & warn against the perils of monopoly. Thus, George’s 1879 book, Progress & Poverty, or to put the question as George saw it, how does poverty emerge in the midst of what appears to be progress?

    1. the ponzi scheme depends on welfare, without the poor it collapses.

      aka the GAME of fairy tales, and 40 virgins when you die, and heaven, when you die, and freedum 65 when you die, …..get in debt young, work, and then die…..blockbusters demise was not endorsing Ameinian Beauty.
      that launched a thousand ships

      1. Plunderers often posture as benefactors. Take a look at the description of the Rockefeller’s on Wikipedia for instance. Referred to as great “philanthropists” they are. Like Big Pharma & Standard oil, any so-called philanthropy is designed to create appearances & grease the wheels of Corporate Commerce & control of the economic terrain by a cartel, i.e., a non-competing Community of Like Interests to an exclusion of all others.
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_D._Rockefeller

        Also check out BIG BILL’S philanthropic credentials…
        http://observer.com/1998/05/bound-to-be-rich-rockefellers-pious-greed/

        Commensurate with government’s pretentious intercession & posturing as benefactor to an emergent dependent welfare class, is the speech by Senator, & Colonel from Tennessee Davy Crockett to the American Congress, “Not Yours To Give.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoEJ-D2bgc0

    2. They produced a movie documentary(DVD) on this subject: Under the Boardwalk: The Monoploy Story.
      I watched it to see how they would frame it, and how, in turn, they would practice deceit. For those(in my mind’s eye) producing it & distributing it, are of a certain tribe, whether they know it or not.
      The documentary was very well done,
      from a deceptive perspective viewpoint,
      that is.
      Perception management is “their” game afterall.
      They would trade mark it/perception management(like a skunk marking it’s territory),
      & have a monopoloy on it(exclusivity).
      And if you really think about it;
      it literally
      …stinks.

  9. Back cover material from Professor Anspach’s book MONOPOLYGATE.

    “…The court-validated history of the world’s most popular board game — embedded in a story of a little guy who took on Corporate America and won. Told with suspense and humor by the professor turned business man turned detective who uncovered the swindle and found the truth. Find out how a woman (Lizzie McGie) and a group of Atlantic City Quakers invented Monopoly (1903) only to be deleted from history in a scheme to fatten the Corpirate bottom line.

    Ralph Anspach is a Professor of Economics at San Francisco State University and author of two books and many professional articles. He had a harrowing childhood in Hitler’s Germany and then soldiered with the U.S. army in the Philippines and faught with the army of Israel during its war of independence. He was also a university student in Paris, construction stiff in Morocco, a secret code clerk with the U.S. army in Germany, and an exchange professor in Indonesia.

    He invented the Anti-Monopoly game, stumbled on the market on his own, and eventually sold a million games world-wide. On the way he was sideswiped by the makers of Monopoly with a ten-year law suit which he finally won in The United States Supreme Court.

    During the legal wars, he turned detective and uncovered the swindle at the roots of the world’s most popular board game.”

    The current Monopoly Game first appeared as The Landlord’s Game. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Landlords_Game_board_based_on_1924_patent.png

    1. Well, now it’s called Monopoly Empire. The old, long play classic game has been updated to reflect today’s financial shenanigans. Players try to acquire as many real brand names in as short a time as possible … without the threat of time behind bars … the ‘go to jail’ option has been eliminated … in reality, it would be replaced with a ‘get bailed out by Congress’ option.

      1. Seems like an excellent idea for an updated version Margaret.

        Indeed. While the Land”Lord’s” get bailed out, their victims are sent to jail or victimized by their medicines & chemicals. I don’t believe this is what Magie had in mind. Like so many other relationships between cause & effect, the “game” or economic terrain, has been inverted.

        With his Anti-Monopoly Game, inventor Ralph Anspach has the right idea. Maybe he just didn’t go far enough.

    2. Thanks Elm and Margaret for this great recommendation for leisure time activity. Putting banksters in jails where they belong must be a lot of fun.

  10. On the topic of current “American” patent laws, author of MONOPOLYGATE Ralph Anspach Professor of Economics at San Francisco State University writes the following: ” now, with patents being so vital to this story about monopoly in all its forms, it might help to emphasize, at this point, that a patent is the king of all monopolies because the patent owner is granted not only a monopoly in his product but his (cartel and or) monopoly is backed up by the power of the state to make sure that he won’t be bothered by competitors. Which raises the question of why the government would connive with would-be monopolists when this violates the usual national policy of doing everything possible to encourage competition, the life blood of a healthy capitalist system.” A good part of the answer is found in history.” [MONOPOLYGATE by Ralph Anspach, first printing 1998, second edition 2007:98-99]

    Note: “MONOPOLYGATE” is a true story about how a little guy took on Corporate America & won. MONOPOLISTS are not capitalists, they are Feudal Corporate Collectivists. As such, Corporatism destroys fair market capitalism, just as sure as libertinism destroys liberty. For the monopolist, “Competition is a sin,” as is also liberty.

    Anspach continues, “It all began with Queen Elizabeth, who used an ingenious way of financing her wars without getting into tax confrontations with Parliament. For a hefty sum she granted Letters of Patent, meaning “open letters,” which allowed buyers to monopolize some area of commerce. For example, if there were two taverns in a village, one of them bought a Letter of Patent and posted it on his door. If the other bar stayed open, the beer patentee would get the sheriff to close the infringing pub down and put its owner in the stocks for defying the Queen’s order. Then the patentee would raise the price of his draft and probably mix in a little water to boot.” No Bavarian purity in brewing (or purity in currency) laws for the Brits!

    “Naturally,” writes Anspach, “the patent owners loved this great way of getting rid of competition and soon merry old England was a wasps’ nest of statutory monopolies. The losers were (and still are) the consumers and all the entrepreneurial types who had their way into business (or access to a means of producing wealth for themselves, their families & communities) blocked by royal decree. Eventually, this led to such an explosion of public outrage that Parliament abolished all patent monopolies with one exception. The government continued to be authorized to grant Letters of Patents but only as a reward to inventors of new and useful ideas as a spur to innovation.” American patent laws have since come to resemble & even exceed the original Queen’s Letters of Patent.

    Thus, in the spirit of spurring innovation & creativity, we have the following reference by Anspach, “the invention monopoly system in the hands of scrupulous and responsible, that’s SCRUPULOUS and RESPONSIBLE people works so well that Jefferson wrote it into the Constitution: “the Congress shall have the power to promote the progress of science and useful art by securing for limited times for authors and inventers the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries.”

    As an aside, one’s birth (BERTH NAME) is not one’s own. It is in fact a Copyrighted item of Intellectual Property owned by the System of Finance currently under which members of the so-called “free world” labour. Ironically, each time one uses what one believes to be one’s BERTH NAME, one is in violation & guilty of Copyright infringement under Maritime & Admiralty Jurisdiction. This may be the basis upon which a “justice” system acting upon the maxim of “guilty until proven innocent” is based. Also, guilty until proven innocent rather than innocent until proven guilty (common law, as in the law of the people & not the Corporate Fiction), would seem to enable an implementation & further imposition of the Napoleonic Code which states, that which is not specifically permitted is forbidden, rather than the American way of, that which is not specifically forbidden is permitted. The legal status of the American people today, is no different from that of the blacks during the days of visible enslavement. See “The Name Game” at http://www.detaxcanada.org

    1. awesome, but try explaining reality too a universisity indoctrinated sheeple that his 50k investment is fiction.

      1. have a look around wall mart, made in slave labor reality, with a human rights policy that has nothing humane in it, chinua achebe, as conrad joseph stated……the dream state of america thrives in it….lucy furs ball and ricky on the bongos

      2. Yes, many hapless dupes unwittingly commit themselves to debt servitude in return for their training & miss-education, often to their lifelong reduction. After investing so much emotional energy & labor & afterwards its produce on being moulded into a compliant PERSON or CLONE within the Corporate Narrative it’s difficult to break with one’s indoctrination & material sustenance to think clearly so as to be able to admit one’s mistaken notions & predatory affiliations. Most people simply go blank & can’t conceive of how sophisticated (to sophisticate meaning to obfuscate & adulterate) the system really is. However, truth comes suddenly like a prairie grass fire, so keep the faith. Falsehood & evil require a tremendous latitude to succeed, which is why operatives of The System are so paranoid or focused upon achieving the “Total Cartel.”

        As the enlightened American cultural anthropologist Mark Twain writes, “I never let my schooling (formal indoctrination) interfere with my education (life long quest for knowledge, understanding, insight & learning).” Neither should any American permit their indoctrination to prevent them from breaking free from the trance they are in. The first step is a desire to know, & the will to break free from the tyrannical overlay of so-called entertainment & convenience. Americans must learn once again to think with their minds, rather than their sexual organs.

        “Man MUST think, because he alone can act.” [Henry George in Progress & Poverty, 1879] CAPS mine.

        1. there is something much greater going on….i keep the faith but i wonder if what is going on is perhaps the faith end game, ie we are just pawns.

          like poor anakin and later his son….the makers brought into a web of actors living a lie.

          1. We do what we can. Evil & falsehood can be defeated when enough good, awakened people DO something. As the motto of the Obama subterfusion suggests, “YES WE CAN!” So, continue to cast your well conceived pebbles on the pond. En-lighten-ment arrives just like the sun’s dispersal of a morning fog. It was intended America be an extension of the enlightenment. This, “illumination” has undermined.

  11. Welcome to Gordon Gecko world where greed is not enough. More ,more money to burn more toys to buy our Elites never ending addictions can never be satisfied it has no bottom or top. Their drug knowing somewhere on this world poor people are suffering starving to death dying of disease or being eaten alive by some animal that’s these psychopaths wet dream.

  12. They want more power.
    The larger the base; the better.
    The more centralized, tighter control; the better.
    The more the slave thinks he’s free; the better.

    Think it will work?
    I got to words for you:
    “Mission Accomplished”.

    1. By the way, they’re are some in intelligence circles, who say, when the “Mission Accomplished” banner was displayed, it was because Saddam Hussein had been killed. But because of certain unaccounted for factors, his double was later captured in a spider-hole, and subsequently, hung by a kangaroo noose.

      Thus giving “Mission Accomplished” more meaning, than the mainstream given.

  13. Right because organizations with attached (ads?) exhortations to join the JBS are sources to be taken real seriously, not. Poor Walmart, they’ll have to pay a living wage if they are to operate in Washington DC. Another thing this website doesn’t like, paying people to work. A bunch of banks in Hamburg, NY, London facilitated the economic crisis in Spain, Greece and Ireland, but not one of these websites supporting the JBS ever say: “Lets fine, prosecute, and regulate the ibankers”, because well those kinds of things would have to be done by central government regulators and that’s something the JBS hates.

    Daddy Koch, who gave massively to fund the John Birch Society, is more than rumored to have made a fortune in the oil fields of Stalin’s Soviet Union. And I’m sure those workers in Baku just showed up for the goodness of the wage and working conditions in those oil fields. In other words those are slaves used by Koch/Stalin to build up Soviet oil production in the 1930s. Defenders of extreme capitalism, like this website and the JBS, sure like using slaves.

    Well at least the European Union still has a big–very advanced–machine tool industry, unlike the US. There’s all sorts of things the US could learn from Europe, currency management is not one. And the idea that trade (the sale) is more important than the thing sold is an idea that has failed the US and much of the world, while enriching only the trader.

    (See Goldman Sachs shuffling aluminum it owns from warehouse to warehouse to delay filling industrial orders and thereby raise the wholesale price of a commodity that Goldman also holds futures on. This kind of thing was entirely illegal preClinton/Reagan, but would Koch/JBS object to a gamed market, no. The brothers Koch are in fact making huge monies in this way. How not at all surprising that this ‘theamerican” website actually supports the policies it ostensibly objects to.)
