Global Power Structures: Masterlist of 1,150 NGOs and 300 Key People in Them
Includes 70 Key Banks and Corporations, as well as 80 "Independent" Government Advisory Committees

"The friendship Nancy and I shared with Kay Graham is one of the legacies of my government service that we cherish most. ... The Kay of the permanent establishment never lost sight of the fact that societies thrive not by the victories of their factions but by their ultimate reconciliations. Kay and I met in 1969 at the home of Joe Alsop, another member of Washington's permanent establishment."
- July 23, 2001, Henry Kissinger, Eulogy for Katharine Graham of the Washington Post, located at Kissinger's personal website.

"[Think tanks] exert definite and even considerable influence on the process of elaborating and making political decisions. It is connected with the fact that ... leaders of such centers have as a rule personal close links with the [government]. Second, the centers are created in order to prepare and adopt the major political decisions in the shade, far from public. Third, such analytical and expert centers really accumulate the best intellectual forces of the country and fourth, not always but rather often, the centers were founded simply to provide jobs to [retired] politicians."
- 1999, Yuri Pivovarov, 'Power Institutions in Post-Communist Russia: Official Forms and Hidden Transcrips,' p. 18 (NATO library). The influence of Russian think tanks on the executive body seems to be many times less than is the case in the United States, but the reasons for their existence seem to be the same.

Introduction

Note: The names of institutes and individuals on this page have been gathered over the course of hundreds of hours from books, newspapers, official websites (don't forget Webarchive), regular websites (names were always double checked), a number of membership lists, and the Who's Who. ISGP's membership/biography lists related to the Pilgrims, the 1001, the American Security Council, Le Cercle and other groups were used as a starting point to find all these private groups. Many sources can be found in those lists or in various articles on this website, but certainly not all - and unfortunately there's no time to include all the sources here. This page has primarily been put together to make cross referencing a hundred times easier than before.

People studying political science should have a good idea of the non-government organizations listed on this page. They vary considerable in purpose and influence, but are an integral part of the globalization process, as well as intelligence and covert operations. For an explanation of the establishments termed "Liberal", "Conservative", "Zionist" and "Vatican-Paneuropa", in which these groups are largely divided, the reader can visit the introduction page.

The names of these groups/NGOs have been collected by the author of this site over the course of eight to nine years. All really low level institutes have been left out - there are probably over a 1000 more filled with names nobody knows and which really have no influence.

What keeps this entire network afloat are funds from corporations, foundations, membership fees, fund raisers and occasional government grants is. Ban the foundations, curb corporate contributions, and the whole network will start to fall apart. I'm not necessarily saying that this is a solution.

Interestingly, back in early 2004 this author was unable to find more than six or seven of the more important organizations below on one website or in one book, even after looking for it all over the place. Often groups like the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission were mixed in with the "Illuminati", the "Freemasons" and the "New World Order". Tiny bits of information on such groups as the Pilgrims, Le Cercle, the 1001 Club, the JASON Group, the Sun Valley Meetings and others were scattered all over the place and often not freely accessible. Information on mainland Europe with regard to these kind of groups was especially scarce. And in all cases no one had a clue how various groups related to each other. As the reader can see, things have changed. A lot!

Influence index permanent government (U.S., Europe, Russia, Middle East)

Below the reader can find names of prominent individuals ranked according to the number of private groups and a number of key corporations that they have (certainly) been involved with. This does not necessarily accurately portray the influence of a person as a Ted Shackley, a Yoshio Kodama or an Adnan Khashoggi, because they mainly operate behind the scenes, but overall this appears to be a very accurate influence index that once and for all - and quite scientifically - identifies all the key players in the liberal (globalist), conservative (defense), Zionist, Vatican-Paneuropa, and Russian establishments. As the reader will soon realize, most of these people know one another very well.

intro

It's possible to check the rankings for yourself by doing searches on this page for particular (sur)names. Ideally sources would be available with all the groups and names listed, but that just takes too much time at this point. Many names should be easy to verify through the sources just mentioned.

GREEN: Career in banking, corporations, or in economic government posts.
YELLOW: Congress, senate, lower level government position, or (vice) president.
RED Military career, defense secretary, CIA, national security advisor or national security scholar.
BLUE: State Department.
GRAY: Soviet/nationalist Russian

Saudi Investment Company (SICO)
An international subsidiary of the Saudi Binladen Group ran by Yeslam bin Laden, a half brother of Osama bin Laden. Already in 1999 French intelligence linked the company to the financing of Osama bin Laden's terrorist network. In addition, Yeslam owned Avcon Business Jets SA and is known to have sent at least one person to the same tiny Florida airport where 9/11 ringleader Mohammed Atta and some of his aides were trained by CIA and White House-linked individuals. Also on the board: Shakarshi family (linked to drug trafficking and money laundering).

Saleh bin Abdul-Aziz Al ash-Sheikh (chair; Saudi minister of Islamic affairs and endowments since 1996; fired officers and disbanded the charity in June 2004 after reports of terrorist financing) | Aqeel Abdulaziz Aqeel al-Aqeel / Aqil Abdulaziz Al - Aqil (founder and general manager 1988- Jan. 2004) | Mansour al-Kadi (deputy general until Jan. 2004) | Wa'el Hamza Julaidan (director from at least 1997 to 2004; president Tuscon Islamic Center 1984-1985) | King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz (donor while crown prince in 2003, as mentioned by al-Aqeel in late 2003).

Apparently Ruslan Saidov was the manager of the foundation's Kavkaz/Caucasus center. Saidov was a key partner in Far West Ltd., for which, among other things, he managed a 5% stake of Al Haramain. Other 5% stake holders apparently were Saudi intelligence chief Prince Turki al Faisal, a reported friend of Saidov, and notorious arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi. U.S. partners of Far West included retired top CIA officer Fritz Ermarth, KBR Halliburton (under Cheney when it co-founded Far West in 1998) and Diligence, LLC, co-founded by William Webster and tightly linked to Carlyle and the Bush administration, and, later on, the Rothschild family.

United Nations Security Council Committee pursuant to resolutions 1267 (1999) and 1989 (2011) concerning Al-Qaida and associated individuals and entities: "Julaidan was a member of Al-Haramain & Al-Aqsa’s board of directors, and he opened three bank accounts on behalf of the NGO between 1997 and 2001. As at 2003, Julaidan continued to have authority to handle two of Al-Haramain & Al Masjed al-Aqsa’s bank accounts as a signatory of its two Bosnian accounts. Al-Haramain & Al Masjed al-Aqsa Charity Foundation in Bosnia and Herzegovina was linked to the Saudi Arabia-based Al-Haramain Islamic Foundation which presented itself as a private, charitable and educational non-governmental organization. When viewed as a single entity, Al-Haramain was one of the principal NGOs active throughout the world providing support for the Al-Qaida network. Funding generally came from individual benefactors and special campaigns which targeted selected business entities around the world. "

Important: executive director David Brower left in protest in 1969 after clashes about opposition to nuclear energy (Brower did not support it). That same year he founded Friends of the Earth with $200,000 of Robert Anderson money.

Also: Steven Greer has lectured the Sierra Club.

Journalist Ben Metcalfe was another among the board members and was part of the small group that continued protests against French atmospheric nuclear tests at Mururoa. He became the Greenpeace Foundation's first chairman. Metcalf left when focused shifted from anti-nuclear protesting to anti-whaling actions.

Exposed the Iran-Contra drug trafficking scandal for State Department friends George Shu1tz and John C. Whitehead, as well as secretary of defense Caspar W. Weinberger. William Casey and conservative McCarthyites, as well as CIA friens as Ted Shackley, had become too influential on Reagan at the time. In addition, Garrison was close to Condi Rice.

1986
Manitou Foundation, Baca Ranch, San Luis Valley
Founders: Maurice Strong and Laurance Rockefeller. Also involved: Steven Greer (Baha'i follower who organized CSETI UFO contact trainings at the Baca Ranch and surrounding areas from at least 1993 to 1998, in the same period he was cooperating with Laurance on UFO disclosure). It's a remote spiritual retreat center at the Sangro de Cristo mountains where many world religions have one or two representatives. The location is known for its past UFO activity and for being the first location where cattle mutilations were reported (1967, Snippy case). There appears to be a lot of gnostic symbolism involved and the retreat seems to have a lot in common with the globalist ideas of the Baha'i Faith, which in turn is completely, one hundred percent compatible with the United Nations ideas on world government.
1988
Human Potential Foundation (HPF)
C. B. Scott Jones (president; six year special assistant to Sen. Pell) | Claiborne Pell | Laurance Rockefeller (financier to the tune of $700,000) | Hans Adam II von Liechtenstein | John Mack (abduction researcher who received $200,000 from HPF).

Helped finance the Center for Treatment and Research of Experienced Anomalous Trauma (TREAT) conferences on abductions and other paranormal phenomena. Rima Laibow (founder and organizer; psychiatrist; later wife of Army Intelligence Gen. Albert Stubblebine; both major disinformers) | Victoria Lacas (abduction researcher married to Col. John Alexander, a friend of Stubblebine and Hans Adam) | Budd Hopkins (close friend of Hans Adam; both tried to find out details of the alleged alien kidnapping of UN secretary general Javier Perez de Cuellar) | Lyn Buchanan (remote viewer).

L. Rockefeller financed John Mack's 1993 Program for Extraordinary Experience Research (PEER), an alien abductee support group which laid the groundwork for Mack's 1994 best-selling book 'Abduction: Human Encounters with Aliens'. Allegedly provided Mack with $250,000 annually in the early 1990s.

Colin Andrews: The premier British crop circle researcher (and certainly in recent years a believer in a global warming armageddon) was financed by Laurance R. in the late 1990s. Already in 1992 Greer accompanied Andrews, doing meditation experiments.

1995 HPF conference: John Mack | Zecharia Sitchin (reportedly had his office at Rockefeller Center) |
1989
Intruders Foundation
Budd Hopkins (founder and executive director) | Hans Adam II von Liechtenstein (financier). Advisory committee: Edward H. Davis, Jr. (psychologist; applied behavior specialist with autistic children) | Carol Rainey (documentary producer) | Peter Robbins (UFO researcher) | Greg Sandow (journalist who writes about UFOs) | Jed Turnbull (psychiatrist with a MA from Fordham) | Oliver von Kemenczky (global account manager Honeywell Corp.) | Dennis K. Anderson (media consultant) | Cathy Del Grosso (forensic psychologist) | Sal Amendola (comic book artist with DC Comics)

1992: Intruders movie. Running time: 2 hours and 40 minutes. Budd Hopkins was played by Richard Crenna. Several reasonable well known actors appear and a very television movie.

1989
Fund for UFO Research Roswell conference, Washington, D.C.
Held at the Smithsonian. Heads of FUFOR: Don Berliner and Bruce Maccabee. Financiers of the conference: Hans Adam II von Liechtenstein and Robert Bigelow. Brought together numerous witnesses of the 1947 Roswell crash. Interviews with the witnesses leads to the video 'Recollections of Roswell', which appears to be good for the most part - except for the questionable San Agustin crash witnesses. Bigelow was involved in financing part of the research into that aspect of the crash, as a picture can be seen in Stanton Friedman's book 'Crash at Corona' of Bigelow and Friedman looking out over the San Agustin plains.
1990
International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD)
Maurice Strong (long-time distinguished fellow)
1990
Turner Foundation

1993
Rockefeller Initiative on UFO disclosure
Laurance Rockefeller (prime mover). White House: Bill Clinton (on April 14, 1993 Laurance meets Clinton at the White House over the issue) | Jack Gibbons (White House scientist briefed by Rockefeller and C. B. Scott Jones on the subject) | John Podesta (Clinton's assistant and later chief of staff; spoke out publicly in favor of disclosure) | Webster Hubbell (Clinton's associate attorney general; looked into UFOs and JFK, but got nothing).

Round table discussion at the JY Ranch: representatives from Gibbons office | Richard Farley | Laurance Rockefeller | Henry Diamond | C. B. Scott Jones | John Mack | Dr. Bruce Maccabee | Leo Sprinkle | Linda Moulton Howe | Steven Greer | Keith Thompson. Bill and Hillary Clinton were also been guests of Laurance at the ranch.

Eventually Laurance Rockefeller and the president back off, apparently fearing repurcussions. The only thing published is 'UFO's: The Best Available Evidence', at different times funded by Laurance Rockefeller, Robert Bigelow and Joe Firmage.
1993-1996
Disclosure Project
Dr. Steven Greer (founder and CEO) | Daniel Sheehan (long-time lawyer to the project and witness) | Laurance Rockefeller (limited financial supporter) | Mary and Evan Galbraith (cooperated with Greer for some time in the 1990s in writing 'UFO's: The Best Available Evidence' - until they had a falling out).

Examples of witnesses used:
- Dr. Fred Bell (listed as "Dr. B.". Not mentioned: new age guru, Pleiadean contactee who believes in reptilians, that Greys eat humans dissolved in acid, that no plane hit the WTC and that 2012 was going to be the end of the world)
- Jim Dilettoso (identity kept hidden, but reported as being reliable. Not mentioned: murky past and known UFO cultist. George A. Hormel II, owner of the Wrigley Mansion, invested in Dilettoso's projects.)
- James Angleton, Jr. (Greer has hinted that this person gave him information. Not mentioned: Reportedly no relationship to the CI chief. However, he is an AFIO leader with the nation's CIA covert operations establishment - with people who would absolute have no interest in releasing classified information)
- Sergeant Robert O. Dean, backed by L. Rockefeller and Claiborne Pell in Congress in 1996, became an important Disclosure Project witness (talking about "ACIO" and 20-something levels about top secret), but these days talks about Annunaki and reptilians to anyone who wants to hear it. In addition, an interested and moderate NATO historian rationally debunked papers he provided as being fake.
- Gordon Creighton and Lord Admiral Hill-Norton are presented as reliable. In fact, both have viewed the abduction subject as being done by demons. Already in the 1970s Creighton was warning that people "have been carried off and ... certainly haven't come back again." Already back then Creighton promoted an author who in turn inspired Erich von Daniken.

Without naming their names directly, Greer has claimed that General Albert Stubblebine and Colonel John Alexander have tried to recruit him into a cell that has infiltrated the civilian UFO community. Those who watched the Hans Adam-financed movie 'Intruders' can see that the same thing happened to Budd Hopkins (by an actor who plays a general who looks like the twin brother of Gen. Stubblebine).

Mentioned by Greer as not having any inside knowledge:

1) General Patrick Hughes, DIA director 1996-1999, who has a major special operations background but is far from an elitist.

2) Adm. Thomas R. Wilson, J-2 intelligence chief for the joined chiefs and DIA head 1999-2002.

Mentioned by Greer as having inside knowledge on the subject (true or not, he spoke to these people or persons close to them): George Shultz | the Bechtel family | David Rockefeller | Peter Peterson | Maxwell Rabb | Claiborne Pell | the Rothschild family | Pehr Gyllenhammar (indirect, but controlled Volvo until the early 1990s) | Hans Adam | Adm. Harry Train | Adm. Bobby Ray Inman. Also: Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld (warned against their re-election in 2004 and that these individuals have direct knowledge of these topics - then again, Greer is politically hundred percent in line with men as Al Gore and Maurice Strong).

Interesting observation: Greer most definitely had a dinner party in 1993 with then-sitting CIA director James Woolsey (who was never allowed to meet president Clinton one-on-one) and John Petersen and their wives on the subject. The participants in the dinner disagree, however, with Greer's account of it. Greer claimed the CIA director was almost in tears that he wasn't told anything about the subject. The other participants, claim, however, that they were just politely listening to his views, but did not necessarily believe in them. Strangely, James W. has incredibly deep ties to the defense industry, the liberal and conservative establishment, and the Navy at the highest levels. If he doesn't know anything about the subject, then pretty much no one does.
1993
State of the World Forum conferences
James Garrison (founder, chair and president) | Daniel Sheehan (founder).

Coast to Coast AM / Art Bell Show
Guests: Frank Gaffney (listed as a guest, but no dates visible; CSP founder) | Richard Hoagland (in the 1980s in contact with SDI/Star Wars figure George Keyworth II, later of the CSP; Keyworth may also have had a hand in providing Hoagland with fake THEMIS IR imagery in 2002 - likely to promote interest in space adventures, military or not) | Joe Firmage | Michael Lindemann (employee of Firmage) | John L. Petersen | Steven Greer | Catherine Austin Fitts (wrote a foreword to one of Mike Ruppert's books) | Mike Ruppert | Daniel Sheehan | Bill Moore (into electric transportation; bio says he has been in contact with James Woo1sey and Gen. Wesley C1ark) | Gordon Novel | Edgar Mitchell | Alex Jones | Stanley Monteith | Dean Radin | Colin Andrews | Hal Puthoff | Russell Targ | Uri Geller | Ingo Swann | Jacques Vallee | Joseph McMoneagle | Deepak Chopra | Amit Goswami | Dr. John Mack | William Jasper | Jeff Rense | Joel Skousen | Malachi Martin and Father Nicholas Gruner | Col.

Also: Ann Finkbeiner (wrote official history on the JASON Group, a year after ISGP's first article which had led to harressment by the JASONs. Ian Punnett thanked this author for a number of questions sent in, but subsequently forgot to ask a single one of them to Finkbeiner (or even one critical question). Since C2C is a show on UFOs and the paranormal, what's the purpose of bringing Finkbeiner on if there's no focus on these topics? And why would Finkbeiner target the conspiracy community if she wants to be taken seriously?)
1995

Daniel Sheehan is general counsel to ISSO.

9th Annual International UFO Congress Convention, held on March 5-11, 2000: Sheehan and Firmage are speakers at the meeting. Dr. Robert and Ryan Wood give a presentation.

They named all these men, as well as: Roy Cohn | Joseph Bonanno | Hans Seligman | Carlo d'Amelio | Max Hageman | Munir Chourbagi | Giuseppe Zigotti | Ferenc H. Simonfay. Incredible that after 50 years we still don't have photocopy proof of who the directors of this company were.

Robertson (co-founder and chair; INCA director) | Cecil Shilstone (co-founder; INCA director). Known financial contributor: Eberhard Deutsch (law partner of Jim Garrison, his political mentor and INCA director).

Committee of New Orleans businessman that decided to privately finance the investigation of Jim Garrison into the JFK assassination, with a primary focus on Clay Shaw -- instead of Shaw's superiors, who were some of the persons financing the investigation. Joseph Rault, Jr. Rault quoted in the National Observer, 'The Kennedy Case', of Feb. 26, 1967:

  "We are prepared to back Jim Garrison all the way. It can be a year--or five years if necessary--and we will provide whatever he needs. No questions asked."

Jim Garrison was inspired to investigate JFK after conversations with his friends Joseph Rault, Jr. and Senator Russell Long on a plane trip to a conference of the American Petroleum Institute. Estimates of how much the group raised range from $30,000 to $100,000.

Liberty Lobby
Founding members advisory council: Willis Carto | Gen. Pero Del Valle | Gen. George Stratemeyer | Taylor Caldwell. Also: General Alfred Wedemeyer (at the very least lots of correspondence with the lobby in the early years) | Mark Lane (attorney to the Lobby, including to Victor Marchetti, since the 1980s and speaker at its conventions) | Col. L. Fletcher Prouty (member of the Lobby's populist action committee; his book 'The Secret Team' was published by Noontide Press, which belongs to the Lobby; special operations expert for the Joint Chiefs under JFK) |

Zionist Watch, set up in 1987 by the lobby. Mark Lane (basically CIA) and Victor Marchetti (CIA) were the original editors. Lawyer for the lobby who supposedly took over its assets in 1993. Lane was a JFK investigator and lawyer for the Jonestown Cult, just before the massacre began. Earlier he had been the same to Martin Luther King and JFK investigator Jim Garrison. Lane is one of the most prominent authors on the JFK case.

Spotlight and American Free Press are anti-Jewish and anti-black (thus, Nazi) conspiracy-oriented publications of the Lobby. July 2008, AFP staff: James Tucker (national editor; anti-BB) | Michael Piper Collins (national corresponding editor) | Willes Carto (national correspondent) | Ted Gunderson (co-editor Southwest regional bureau; employee ultra-right CIA-linked Murchison family) | Anthony Hilder (anti-BB, Illuminati, etc.) and Rev. Ted Pike (co-editors regional bureau West). Speakers at the 2006 American Free Press-Barnes Review International Conference in Washington: Dave Von Kleist (major 9/11 disinformer) | Collins Piper | Doug Rokke (anti-depleted uranium activist) | Colonel Donn de Grand Pre (9/11 disinformer) | Victor Thorn and Lisa Guliani (Wing-TV 9/11 disinformers) | Ellen Mariani | William Rodriguez (major 9/11 disinformer; reversed 9/11 testimony, claiming all of sudden a bomb went off in the basement of the WTC) | Lindsey Williams (abiotic oil/peak oil disinformer) | Eustace Mullins (protege of the Nazi poet Ezra Pound and H.L. Hunt; major anti-NWO author) | Ted Gunderson (disinformer on chemtrails, child abuse and everything else) | Willis Carto (Nazi) | Texe Marrs (religious extremist Illuminati believer and extremely anti-Jewish) | Mark Lane.

Lyndon Larouche: allied with Willis Carto and the Liberty Lobby 1974-1979, until Carto became involved in holocaust denial. Was more socialist thinking, however, and also always maintained ties with the Soviet Union, as well persons in the U.S. government. By far the most knowledgeable conspiracy group ever, but very manipulative, radical and holds a lot of info and sources back.

Institute for Historical Review (IHR), founded by Carto in 1978, was part of the Lobby. It tries to provide "science" that the holocaust never happened or had very limited impact. Has become the leading group for holocaust denial/revisionism. Principals: David Duke | David Irving | Mark Weber.

Jeff Rense website and radio program, founded in the 1990s, is today's most prominent continuation of Liberty Lobby Nazi-inspired conspiratorial thinking. Terry Arnold (columnist at Rense since 2002; associate of Neil Livingstone and his CIA/Pentagon group) | Paul Craig Roberts (columnist since 2010) | Webster Tarpley (columnist; Larouche background) | William Engdahl (columnist; Larouche background) | David Duke (long-time columnist; KKK and Nazi background) | David Irving (long-time columnist; IHR Nazi) | Mark Weber (long-time columnist; IHR Nazi).
1958
John Birch Society
Primary publication has been the New American, which attacks BB, the TC, the CFR and does not distinguish between liberalism, communism and socialism. Early(McCarthyite) board members: Robert Welch | Nelson Bunker Hunt | Gen. Wedemeyer | Clarence Manion | Adolphe Menjou | Larry MacDonald | Harry Bradley | Fred Koch | Spruille Braden | Edward Butler (ordinary member). Also: Gary Allen (famous author on the CFR and TC; speech writer for George Wallace and advisor to Nelson Bunker Hunt) | William Jasper (prominent editor The New American) | Ron Paul and Father Nicholas Gruner (supporters who were in JBS documentary 'United Nations: Global tyranny, step by step') | Malachi Martin (interviewed in 1997 and major critic of the Rockefeller, Ford and Carnegie Fdns.) | John McManus (protege of Welch since 1966 at the JBS and president since 1991).

The Alex Jones Show is largely a modern spin-off of the JBS with an additional focus on modern conspiracy. In 2010 John McManus stopped by at Jones HQ, where Jones stated on air:
  "I've had you on a few times over the phone, but Mr. McManus, it's great to meet you in person and I appreciate your tireless work for the John Birch Society over the last 40 years. Boy, I'll tell you, everything you guys have talked about has unfortunately come true."

Some of Alex Jones guests from the JBS and CNP: Phyllis Schlafly | G. Edward Griffin | Stanley Monteith | William Jasper | Dr. Michael Coffman (also in Jones' Endgame movie) | Gina Parker Ford (in Endgame) | Joel Skousen (son of Cleon Skousen, also of the ASC) | Jerome Corsi (close to JBS leadership and a propagandist against Kerry and Obama who pushed for war with Iran) | Paul Craig Roberts | Ron Paul (about the only dovish but fervant JBS backer). Also: James Tucker (until his death Jones' BB expert). Other guests: Ted Gunderson of the Liberty Lobby and John De Camp (cooperated in apparently limiting the fall-out of the Franklin child abuse scandal and in Oklahoma).

Statements of Alex Jones on his show. On August 31, 2010:

  "There's a left-wing CFR-funded conspiracy theory that says some group called the CNP runs everything [bored expression]. It's a total diversion, but we'll talk about it from the other side."

On July 1, 2011, while being confronted with a guest who is just as right-wing as the CNP, but frustrated by its lack of what appears to be political compromise:

  "She brought up the, uh, [thinking hard] CNP, which I haven't done a lot of research on. People have asked me about it, so I have done some. They, reportedly, the Hunt brothers set it up and things. And she was saying that that was not a real organization, or that that isn't a conservative group trying to take America back, or fight the New World Order, as they claim. ... Is the whole CNP bad? There have also been a lot of people who have been in the CNP, like a Paul Craig Roberts - he's grown, he's learned things. I've talked to him about it and he says it's just basically ineffectual." [starts to agree that neocons may be controlling the CNP]

At least in 2011 Alex Jones received his "pocket constitution" flyers from the Heritage Foundation, which he sent to people who purchased items from his website. Considering the Heritage Foundation is the main U.S. arm of the secretive CIA, MI6 and Opus Dei-ran Cercle group, that explains why Jones all of sudden withdrew all support for ISGP when it began to focus on the right-wing of the spectrum in late 2006, starting with a massive article on Le Cercle, in which the Heritage Foundation, the CNP and the JBS were also put under the magnifying glass. Before, while writing much less detailed articles about the liberal establishment and globalization, there hadn't been any issues.

Also:
- Henry Regnery: the family publishing firm published books of Ezra Pound (the fascist mentor of Eustace Mullins), UFO authors as Jacques Vallee, J. Allen Hynek and Raymond Drake, and the first prominent book on Multiple Personality Disorder/Dissociative Identity Disorder.
Gen. Twining: his publishing firm - also the one of the husband of Jeane K. - published Mark Lane’s Rush to Judgment, the prominent critique of the JFK assassination and the Warren Commission. It was published while Twining was vice chair.

Separate: Col. Michael Aquino was listed as an advisory council member in a biography of his in the 1980s. This is the Temple of Set satanist at the center of a massive ritual abuse scandal in the 1980s. He walked free. Denied being involved with the ASC. Confirmed to this author that he is still friendly with his superior at the time, Gen. Paul Vallely, but literally denies knowing anyone mentioned on this page. He even claimed never to have heard of James Woolsey, who has been among Gen. Vallely's closest associates for years. Woolsey was also a regular at Offutt AFB at the time Aquino supposedly carried out questionable mind control research. Another coincidence: Aquino is a very close friend of Col. John Alexander, but wouldn't elaborate on when they first met.

The "black network", "octopus", "nebula" and "Joint"

"The black network"
On July 29, 1991, Time Magazine reported in great detail how the corrupt BCCI bank had been controlled by what senior officers termed the "black network", which had ties to many western intelligence agencies (including the CIA, DIA and Mossad), arms merchants and dictators around the world. This hugely powerful conglomerate was involved in drug running, arms trafficking, gold smuggling, assassinations and bribing government officials. From other sources it became clear that black network operatives were working with the CIA and Mossad, indicating these two elements really controlled the network. See the La Nebuleuse article for some details. July 29, 1991, Time Magazine, 'The Dirtiest Bank of All':

"B.C.C.I. is more than just a criminal bank. From interviews with sources close to B.C.C.I., TIME has pieced together a portrait of a clandestine division of the bank called the "black network," which functions as a global intelligence operation and a Mafia-like enforcement squad. Operating primarily out of the bank's offices in Karachi, Pakistan, the 1,500-employee black network has used sophisticated spy equipment and techniques, along with bribery, extortion, kidnapping and even, by some accounts, murder. The black network -- so named by its own members -- stops at almost nothing to further the bank's aims the world over."

"The more conventional departments of B.C.C.I. handled such services as laundering money for the drug trade and helping dictators loot their national treasuries. The black network, which is still functioning, operates a lucrative arms-trade business and transports drugs and gold. According to investigators and participants in those operations, it often works with Western and Middle Eastern intelligence agencies. The strange and still murky ties between B.C.C.I. and the intelligence agencies of several countries are so pervasive that even the White House has become entangled. As TIME reported earlier this month, the National Security Council used B.C.C.I. to funnel money for the Iran-contra deals, and the CIA maintained accounts in B.C.C.I. for covert operations. Moreover, investigators have told TIME that the Defense Intelligence Agency has maintained a slush-fund account with B.C.C.I., apparently to pay for clandestine activities..."

"U.S. agents collaborated with the black network in several operations, according to a B.C.C.I. black-network "officer" who is now a secret U.S. government witness. Sources have told investigators that B.C.C.I. worked closely with Israel's spy agencies and other Western intelligence groups as well, especially in arms deals. The bank also maintained cozy relationships with international terrorists, say investigators who discovered suspected terrorist accounts for Libya, Syria and the Palestine Liberation Organization in B.C.C.I.'s London offices..."

"The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 and the resulting strategic importance of neighboring Pakistan accelerated the growth of B.C.C.I.'s geopolitical power and its unbridled use of the black network..."

"The bank was in a unique position to operate an intelligence- gathering unit because it dealt with such figures as Noriega, Saddam, Marcos, Peruvian President Alan Garcia, Daniel Ortega, contra leader Adolfo Calero and arms dealers like Adnan Khashoggi. Its original purpose was to pay bribes, intimidate authorities and quash investigations. But according to a former operative, sometime in the early 1980s the black network began running its own drugs, weapons and currency deals."

"I was recruited by the black network in the early 1980s," says an Arab- born employee who has ties to a ruling family in the Middle East and has told U.S. authorities of his role in running one of the black units. "They came to me while I was in school in the U.S.; they spoke my language, knew all of my friends and gave me money. They told me they wanted me to join the organization, and described its wealth and political power, but at first they never said exactly what the organization did."

"This operative -- call him Mustafa -- underwent a year of training that began with education in psychology and the principles of leadership and proceeded into spycraft, with lessons in electronic surveillance, breaking and entering, and interrogation techniques. "Then the nature of our advisers changed," says Mustafa. "The pleasantness was gone, and we moved to Pakistan, where we trained with firearms." Mustafa's first operational assignment took him to London. "They gave us passports and identification, and we moved a shipment of ((unidentified)) goods. In England they had more I.D. waiting for us, because customs and immigration are strict, but when we moved many places, into India or China or Latin America, matters were taken care of, and we just slipped through borders. We would be met. It was always all arranged.""

"A typical operation took place in April 1989, when a container ship from Colombia docked during the night at Karachi, Pakistan. Black-unit operatives met the ship after paying $100,000 in bribes to Pakistani customs officials. The band unloaded large wooden crates from several containers. "They were so heavy we had to use a crane rather than a forklift," says a participant. The crates were trucked to a "secure airport" and loaded aboard an unmarked 707 jet, where an American, believed by the black-unit members to be a CIA agent, supervised the frantic activity..."

"The black network was the bank's deepest secret, but rumors of its activities filtered through the bank's managerial level with chilling effectiveness. Senior bankers voice fears that they will be financially ruined or physically maimed -- even killed -- if they are found talking about B.C.C.I.'s activities... Businessmen who pursued shady deals with B.C.C.I. are just as frightened. 'Look,' says an arms dealer, 'these people work hand in hand with the drug cartels; they can have anybody killed.'... Currently the black units have focused their scrutiny and intimidation on investigators. 'Our own people have been staked out or followed, and we suspect tapped telephones,' says a New York law-enforcement officer."
   
"The Octopus"
Term that was created by the murdered journalist Danny Casolaro to describe the global, criminal, CIA-ran conglomerate he was investigating. Although it isn't known if this term was also used by people involved in this network, his work was very unique and he was clearly digging very deep -- too deep, it appears. Before he was killed (as have many, many others), Casolaro had already received numerous warnings and death threats, but apparently he couldn't back off. As for me, I agree with Casolaro's take on the subject. Parts of his investigation are discussed in the 1996 book The Last Circle of Cheri Seymour. Kenn Thomass and Jim Keith also discussed Casolaro's work in their 1996 book The Octopus: Secret government and the death of Danny Casolaro, pp. 69, 73 (revised edition of 2004):

"Although Danny Casolaro does not state it explicitly in his notes, he apparently conceived the Octopus starting as an anti- Communist response to Philby's betrayel [found out about in 1963]; a conclave of OSS/CIA veterans, dispersing and coalescing in what Casolaro called "tag team compartments" and reaping huge profits through assassinations, arms sales, the control of governments, international drug trafficking, and the promotion of international fascism...

"Danny Casolaro believed the Octopus responsible for criminal conspiracies which, linked, formed a virtual history of intelligence double dealing from 1950 to the present. These events, in Casolaro's view, included the ousters of US President Richard Nixon, Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam, the Shah of Iran, and the murders of Chilean President Allende, and, of course, of President John F. Kennedy. Casolaro saw the Octopus' tentacles entwined throughout the creation of the Golden Triangle and Latin America drug trade, the Cuban Bay of Pigs debacle, the October Surprise, the BCCI banking scandal, and, almost as an afterthought, the theft of the PROMIS software. Casolaro found a "Secret Team," a high cabal of players operating a clandestine, parallel government, identified previously by other writers. The cabal had operated beyond the control or scrutiny of the elected government, financed by drug- running from Southeast Asia and the Americas... Casolaro believed the crimes could best be identified by linking them to a small network of named individuals that made up his Octopus. He outlined their hierarchy and provided specific detail about their behind-the-scenes role in contemporary political history.

"Casolaro named people both familiar and unfamiliar to other researchers. He deemed the "first level" operatives to be Richard Helms, George Pender, John Philip Nichols, and Ray Cline
[ASC; close to Cercle group]. The second level included Robert Chasen, E. Howard Hunt, Edwin Wilson, Thomas Clines, and Ted Shackley [Shackley was influential in Le Cercle; Shackley was definitely the leader of what Casolaro terms "second level"]. Working backward from the PROMIS theft, Casolaro saw them in a new relationship, a nearly organic entity that impacted on both past and then current events..."

The Octopus', p. 71, interview with investigative reporter Virginia McCullough: "Danny would say that he couldn't believe the government would do drugs for arms. He was God, motherhood, and apple pie. I would say, 'Look Danny, let's get real, we're living in the 20th century.'"
"The nebula"
Spoken about in the 1994 ATLAS dossier on this website. It involves a network of Mossad agents and Russian mafia, but also CIA, politicians and bankers. Elements are very recognizable compared to the previous two terms: "black network" and "Octopus". Intro of the the relevant ATLAS dossier document:

"To comprehend this nebula, it is necessary to abandon traditional financial or political logic; this is not merely a question of nation, political party, or of ordinary economics... Our conclusion would be that at least over the last twenty years, the economic powers, some of which mafia types, have allied themselves with political forces and organized criminal structures, and reached the 4th stage of money laundering, namely, Absolute Power. It has been specified to us that at the present moment these characters control 50% of the world economy."
   
"The Joint" Network described by Kay Griggs. "Joint" is actually one of several terms her husband, a top Marine Corps official, used for the network he was involved with. "Joint" specifically refers to his group's alliance with the Zionist network headquartered in New York. I have interacted with Kay Griggs, did extensive research on her claims and see no reason at all to doubt her statements, despite the fact that she has a severe bias against Jews. This is only to be expected, as Kay Griggs was protected by Sarah McClendon, part of the old non-neocon, anti-liberal establishment and old anti-Zionist American Security Council and John Birch Society network. That also seems to explain why she is allowed to speak out, as shows like Alex Jones and Jeff Rense have their roots in these same groups.

Existence uncertain

Committee of 26
This group is mentioned in Simon Regan's book 'Who killed Diana?' The author was informed about this group through his intelligence contacts, including the one who advised him to look into Le Cercle. I quote from his book:

"My own security contacts, including the Baroness, had also told me about a highly mysterious organization called the Committee of 26, which is apparently based in Bristol, in England’s West Country. I have never heard of this and can find no other official reference in any file. But it is apparently a super-secret "liaison desk" between the highest echelons of British and American agencies and has the "co-operation" of the French. I was told it was "Old Guard" and worked unilaterally. That is, it was a kind of uncontrolled "super-agency" which answered to no one. I cannot show that this agency even exists... I trust the Baroness, but she was unable to give me any feasible further "chapter and verse."

This could well be disinformation, as this is certainly the case with John Coleman's Committee of 300 ("the Olympians"). I read Coleman's book years back, looking for evidence of the committee's existence, but couldn't find it. Virtually all of the information could be found in the work of EIR and Eustace Mullins (both also propagandists, but who never used the Committee of 300 term), and most of the names he mentions have at least once visited Bilderberg. Especially since Coleman gathered so many names of this alleged Committee of 300, you'd guess he could at least point you in the right direction for proof of its existence. But he has never done that. Coleman, a former MI6 agent, is typical of conservative establishment propagandists à la Brian Crozier and others, in the sense that he links liberalism, socialism and communism all on one heap and the West has been a victim of this joint "plot". This alone is a dead giveaway that he's spreading disinformation. Maybe it's different with the Committee on 26, but don't get your hopes up.
 
Group 13
Said to be an assassination team from Britain. You can find some information about it here. The supposed head of Group 13 turned out to be someone whose background could not be fully traced, not even by the British Parliament. This person and his allies had also infiltrated the boards of arms companies. Apparently, when these companies aren't useful anymore, they are run into the ground. This group, which appears to have close ties to the Pinay Cercle leadership, will be slightly more expanded on in the future.
 
Company 14
Another assassination team from England. The well-respected and well-connected author Gordon Thomas spoke about this group in March 2010. Supposedly this group is hunting down IRA members who killed two British soldiers and a policeman in Northern Ireland.
 
Knight's Templar (CIA)
In his 1977 book The Night Watch, former CIA officer David Atlee Phillips wrote on page 123 (according to Lobster): "...that small circle of well-bred, highly educated adventurers who were known to some in the CIA as the 'Knights Templars' - Allen Dulles, Frank Wisner, Kermit Roosevelt, Tracey Barnes, Dick Bissell, and kindred spirits. Other CIA veterans have confirmed the existence of similar associations within the agency, with names like the "Century group" and the "Gold Key group".
 
Synarchist Movement of Empire
The Synarchist and Martinist order existed, but nothing is really known about it and it may well have been very insignificant in terms of influence. But some have claimed that the philopsophies of Synarchism played a role in the French version of an underground fascist, pre-World War II movement.

1969, William L. Shirer, 'The Collapse of the Third Republic', p. 218-219: "Later Coutrot would be generally credited with being the man behind a technocratic movement called Synarchie, which to this day, despite many studies of it, remains - at least to this writer, who has pondered most of them - somewhat of a mystery... That some Synarchists organized as far back as 1922 a secret society with revolutionary aims has been established. It was called "Le Mouvement Synarchique d'Empire," or MSE, and its secret "Pact," containing "Thirteen Fundamental Points and 598 Propositions" for the Synarchist revolution, was discovered by the Vichy police in 1941 and published after the war... so far as one can make out from reading the lengthy document the movement would set up a sort of super monopoly capitalism, with competition abolished and endless plans drawn up for production and distribution, the whole - as well as the government - to be run by knowledgeable technocrats... That at one time the MSE was linked to the terrorist Cagoule [CSAR] also seems clear... this secret society of technocrats never got close to staging a revolution." A number of other authors disagree with that last notion. You can find more on the SME and the Synarchie in note 3 of the article on Le Cercle and especially in note 61 and 62 of the article on the Pilgrims.

Here's a quick timeline compiled from the work of Roger Mennevée in Les Documents Politiques, Diplomatiques et Financiers, which was published from 1946 to 1962.

1922
The SME is born in Europe and its membership slowly rises over the years.
1932
The SME controls the Theosophy Society [it is known that Saint Yves d'Alveydre with his Synarchie concept was a significant influence on Blavatsky] and other dissident branches.
February 1934
Jean Coutrot begins his intense recruitment. He creates organizations like the CPEE, PCES, CEPH, CHPS, etc. At that moment, the SME has about 300 members, which will start to rise more rapidly from this point on.
1934
The SME controls the leadership of the Cagoule, a fascist organization which worked to undermine the French republic.
1934
The SME tries to take over the French government through La Cagoule. Fails.
