The Power Elite (PE) has been around for centuries, but a useful starting point for its “modern activities” would be about 350 years ago. In 1677 Sir William Temple (a sort of John Jay McCloy PE Agent) helped arrange the marriage of William of Orange (Holland) to Princess Mary (heir to the British throne). In 1688 another PE agent Thomas Wharton instigated the Revolution of 1688 replacing James II (a Stuart) with William and Mary as rulers of Britain. Shortly thereafter, William had the British treasury borrow heavily from the Bank of Amsterdam, whose bankers received a royal charter to establish the Bank of England which by 1698 was owed 16 million pounds by the British treasury. Indebtedness of sovereigns and nations is one of the primary means of PE control.
Wharton was a Hanoverian as was George III who became king of England in 1760. Shortly thereafter, the American colonies began to print their own script for currency, and the PE resented this movement of economic independence. Therefore, the British crown began to enact measures (e.g., Stamp Act, Coercive Acts, etc.) to counter this, and according to founding father Benjamin Franklin, this was largely the cause of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. This revolution of independence led to the establishment of the U.S., resulting in a plan by the PE to regain control of America. How the PE would do this was explained by Philip Freneau in the July 1792 edition of American Museum. The process the PE would use is the dialectic and they created communism as the antithesis to American capitalism.
In 1828, the first commune in the U.S. was founded in New Harmony, Indiana, by Robert Dale Owens and Frances Wright. Shortly thereafter, in New York they formed the Workingmen’s Party with Orestes Brownson who would later describe their plot to take control of the U.S. (See my 200-year education chronology). The PE’s controlled League of the Just financed Karl Marx to write the Communist Manifesto in 1848, and Marx’s slogan would be “workers of the world unite.”
In an effort to break up the U.S., the PE fomented the American Civil War. In 1861, U.S. minister to Vienna John Lothrop Motley wrote about a plot to break the southern states from the others, forming with Caribbean and Central American nations a “Gulf Empire.” Motley said the plot began about 25 years earlier, which would be about the time of the attempted assassination of President Andrew Jackson on January 30, 1835 by Richard Lawrence. When Lawrence was asked about his motive, he replied that “money would be more plenty” and would be more easily obtained from the Second Bank of the United States which Jackson opposed.
When asked if anyone advised him to shoot President Jackson, Lawrence replied, “I do not like to say,” and he further declared that no power in this country could punish him for having attempted to assassinate President Jackson “because it would be resisted by the powers of Europe, as well as of this country.” Lawrence also said he had been “long in correspondence with the powers of Europe” (see report written by Dr. Causin and Dr. Thomas Sewell of Washington, D.C. after interviewing Richard Lawrence).
The PE in Europe owned a sizable portion of the Second Bank of the United States, and in Europe in the early 1840s, Alfred Lord Tennyson in “Locksley Hall” wished for “the parliament of man in the Federation of the world.” As far as John Ruskin was concerned, this world government would be run by “the best northern blood” elite. Ruskin matriculated at Oxford University in 1836, only a few years after the secret Skull & Bones (S&B) elite society was founded at Yale University. The elitist Ruskin has a swastika on his gravestone, and swastikas (elitist symbol) have been in the S&B vault at Yale. In 1869, Ruskin began teaching at Oxford, and in the 1870s Oxford student Cecil Rhodes was impressed by Ruskin’s philosophy to such an extent that in 1891 Rhodes formed the Secret Society of the Elect “to take the government of the whole world” in Rhodes’ own words.
By the early 1900s, hereditary PE member John D. Rockefeller had his agents in every hamlet in the land (see Thomas Lawson’s Frenzied Finance, 1904) and a 1911 St. Louis Post-Dispatch cartoon by Robert Minor shows Rockefeller with fellow PE members J.P. Morgan, Andrew Carnegie, etc. welcoming Karl Marx’s “Socialism” to Wall Street. Also in 1911, PE agent Col. Edward M. House’s Philip Dru: Administrator was published and referred to a Socialist future to come. House was President Woodrow Wilson’s chief advisor, and Wilson was aware of “a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive….”
One of the top members of Cecil Rhodes’ secret society was Lord Esher who helped involve the U.S. in WWI, which Col. House said had to be “in fierce and exaggerated form” to bring about Tennyson’s desire in the form of the League of Nations. The American people, though, rejected the League, so the next phase of the PE’s dialectical synthesis of thesis (capitalism) and antithesis (communism) resulting in socialism was the creation of National Socialism (which is what “NAZI” means).
Col. House had succeeded in getting President Wilson to sign the Federal Reserve Act in 1913. The “Fed” was under the control of PE members like J.P. Morgan, who would then establish the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in 1930. In November 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt wrote to Col. House that they both knew the U.S. government was under the control of “a financial element in our larger centers” ever since the days of President Jackson. The BIS was the central bank of all the world’s central banks, and beginning in the 1930s it came under the control of the Nazis with American Thomas McKittrick heading the BIS from 1940-1946.
In 1933, in The Shape of Things to Come, PE agent H.G. Wells wrote that a second world war would begin around 1939, and in that year his New World Order indicated Tennyson’s World-State would come from a conference in Basra, Iraq in about five decades. The reason Wells said this was that he knew the second attempt (the UN at the end of WWII) to bring about Tennyson’s dream also wouldn’t succeed.
Because the PE’s plan involved using National Socialism (Nazism) to bring about the synthesis of capitalism and communism into a world socialist government, the brains of the Nazi movement (Himmler, Bormann, etc.) developed a secret plan to control much of the world’s economy within two generations (about now), and with a continued alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood beginning in the 1930s until today.
