Bankers All the Way Down

                Redux #101 features two long-time listeners talking about the effect that Alan Watt’s work had on them, interspersed with excerpts from two talks:  Alan solo hosting Sweet Liberty on February 14, 2006, and a blurb from April 17, 2007, entitled “Common Cause and Coming Together.”  This is how Alan began the talk from Feb. 14, 2006:


                “…I had no major topic to talk about today, except, perhaps, to put some of the tremendous finger-pointing that goes on between who's behind this move towards the Great Society, as they call it, that is being created gradually, down through the last many centuries, actually.  Who's behind this.  And who's right and who's wrong when it comes to all the finger-pointing between different groups.  And, the thing is, if you check into the material, the written materials of every group, and follow what they say, and the documentation that they have, you can check out yourself, and say, my God, they're all right.  Every one of these sides with their documentation tend to make you think they're right.  Well, how can they all be right?  And the facts do all check out.  You'll find characters on every side of this affair, who did make certain statements, who did make policies, who did decide to make major moves within the world, and it's all well documented.  And yet, they're all doing it.  And it isn't until you understand the big picture. 

            You have to get above the world, and look down here, to see the big picture, to understand that all of these groups, at the top, are led by the same high, occult society.  The top members know each other.  They're all brothers, high brothers.  The idea of a pyramid that appears in so many of their emblems, is that, you cannot see, if you're on one side of a pyramid, how many other sides there are.  You can't see them.  Only the guy at the top, on the capstone, can look down on all sides.  And then, remember, there's another side, which you don't see, which is the base.  So, there's actually five sides to the pyramid.  So only the guy at the top knows all the secrets.  And Masonry is a degreed system, where every degree means that you cannot tell the secrets of your new degree, and the new truths as they call them – new truths, because they keep changing the truth as you go up – to the guy beneath you.  So, it's a need-to-know basis.” 


                The Trilateral Commission was started in 1973 by David Rockefeller, a banker and an internationalist, with the aim of creating a global economic order.  Fostering agreements between multiple countries for a common goal (multilateralism) and global governance were among the priorities.  Rockefeller advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski organized the Commission.  He would later become President Jimmy Carter’s National Security Advisor.  Carter was also a key player in the new enterprise of the Trilateral Commission.

                Founding members included Alan Greenspan and Paul Volcker.  Both would later head be heads of the Federal Reserve System.

                Over the years there have been many members of the Trilateral Commission whose names you would recognize.  The list is too long to recap, but here are a very view notable names:


Michael Bloomberg

Jeffrey Epstein

Henry Kissinger

Larry Fink (BlackRock CEO)

David Rubenstein (chair of the Council on Foreign Relations, founder of The Carlyle Group, private equity management with $376 billion in assets under management, trustee of the World Economic Forum)

Eric Schmidt (ex-CEO Google)

Robert Zoellick (CFR member, former head of the World Bank)


                Patrick M. Wood of the website Technocracy News has written about various aspects of this agenda for many years.  In 1979-80, he co-wrote Trilaterals Over Washington with the late Antony C. Sutton.  This is a well-researched book, with a new addition published in 2017.


                With Alan’s talks on my mind, I wanted to write about the brotherhoods and secret societies behind this ancient agenda, but of course that’s not an easy thing to do on a Sunday morning.  The internet is full of “amazing” things, but we don’t have access to an exhaustive list of the “secret” organizations to which our current movers and shakers belong.  It occurred to me to have a glance at the Wiki page on the Trilateral Commission, a not-so-secret organization.  See the “References” at the end of the Wiki article.  With entries such as these, one could stay busy for a whole afternoon:


·         "Hill says Soros conspiracy theories are 'new Protocols of the Elders of Zion'"       


·         The World Economic Forum | A Partner in Shaping History | The First 40 Years | 1971 – 2010, p. 35: "Klaus Schwab with two important mentors, Henry Kissinger, . . . his former professor at Harvard. . ."


·         (2013), "Jeffrey Epstein, Education Activist, Applauds Bloomberg's Plan for New York City Charter Schools", CBS MoneyWatch: " . . . Bloomberg's funding will come through his foundation, the Young Men's Initiative, which is also funded by George Soros Open Society Foundations. . . . Jeffrey Epstein also founded the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics at Harvard University in 2003 with a $30 million grant. He is a former member of the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, Rockefeller University, New York Academy of Science and sits on the board of the Mind, Brain and Behavior Committee at Harvard University."


·         Robert Frank, (May 26, 2009), "Billionaires Try to Shrink World's Population, Report Says", The Wall Street Journal: "The New York meeting of billionaires Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, David Rockefeller, Eli Broad, George Soros, Ted Turner, Oprah, Michael Bloombеrg and others was . . . a friendly chat . . . . 'Taking their cue from Gates they agreed that overpopulation was a priority' . . . "



                But rather than get lost in Wiki’s labyrinth, I took a quick peak at Patrick Wood’s website and was delighted to find that one of his latest postings was this:


Trilateral Commission Declares “2023 is Year One of this new global order”


2023 is the 50th anniversary of the Trilateral Commission, so this bold declaration is their celebration of all that they’ve been able to accomplish.  Here is a quote from Patrick Wood’s article of 17 March, 2023 which I encourage you to read in its entirety:


Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF), stated in 2020, “The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world”. 




                Are we in another banking crisis?  Is it systemic or are these recent failures and wild fluctuations in the market localized?  Is the rescue of Credit Suisse an isolated event?  Why is this happening?  Is it Biden’s interest rate policies?  Is it Janet Yellen’s interest rate policies?  Who is to blame?

                The Wall Street Journal said that another banking crisis was predictable, and they point to the Dodd-Frank Act which Congress passed in 2010.  What happened to Glass-Steagall Act, part of the United States Banking Act of 1933?  Who is Dodd and who is Frank and what secret societies or brotherhoods do they belong to?  We won’t find mention of Dodd’s blood oaths, but here are a few things of interest. 

                Senator Dodd is the son of Senator Dodd, and his brother was appointed ambassador to Uruguay and Costa Rico by President Clinton.  Senator Dodd the younger was a long-time chairman of the Senate Banking Committee.  He has been involved in a few scandals and scrapes such as the Countrywide Loan controversy, the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac controversies, the AIG federal assistance and bonuses controversies and the Irish cottage controversies.  This last controversy is interesting.  Senator Dodd purchased a “cottage” in Ireland with Edward Downe Jr., a former principal in the investment bank Bear Stearns.  Downe Jr. was convicted of insider trading, but Dodd successfully lobbied Clinton to pardon Downe.  A “controversy” in Washington D.C. would be known in other parts of the world as “fraud” or a “felony,” “lying,” “cheating,” et cetera.

                In 2009, President Obama announced sweeping reforms in response to the financial crisis of 2007-2008 and so Fox Dodd was put in charge of the Henhouse.




                Back to the Trilaterals.  Don’t read too much into this organization.  It’s just benevolent fellows keeping an eye on things.  Some conspiracy theorists believe the organization to be a central plotter of a world government or synarchy…Neo-conservative pundit Charles Krauthammer mockingly alluded to the conspiracy theories when he was asked in 2012 who makes up the "Republican establishment", saying, "Karl Rove is the president. We meet every month on the full moon... [at] the Masonic Temple. We have the ritual: Karl brings the incense, I bring the live lamb and the long knife, and we began... with a pledge of allegiance to the Trilateral Commission.”

                As a neo-conservative, Krauthammer would have been swimming the same waters with those of the infamous Project for a New American Century.  Trained as a psychiatrist, Krauthammer joined Jimmy Carter’s administration as director of psychiatric research.   He was involved in the creation of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders III in 1980.  I will leave it to you, the readers, to research the importance of changes made to that edition of the DSM and the one that followed in 1987, in terms of cultural changes we are now living through specific to sexuality and gender.




                We won’t find “brotherhoods” that our current head of the Federal Reserve belongs to.  The newspapers all report that Janet Yellen is doing all possible to avoid “contagion” surrounding the Silicon Valley Bank collapse or bail-out or whatever.  Yellen is the first woman to “head the U.S. central bank, or any major central bank, and the first Democrat to do so since Paul Volcker assumed that position in 1979 via President Jimmy Carter.  She was sworn into office on February 3, 2014…According to a Fed representative, on Yellen's request, her title would be altered to "chair" rather than "chairman" or "chairwoman," as she prefers a gender-neutral manner.”

                President Clinton appointed her as a member of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in 1994 and President Obama made her chairwoman of the Federal Reserve following Ben Bernanke, in 2010.  Whatever her “secret” affiliations are, Yellen is a “made” woman, or a made, gender-neutral “It.”




                That Trilateral Kissinger wrote an article in 2020 for the Wall Street Journal entitled “The Coronavirus Pandemic Will Forever Alter the World Order” and we can talk for weeks about the honey trap operation of Trilateral Jeffrey Epstein and the silence and cooperation that blackmail delivers.

                Trilateralist Larry Fink of BlackRock also had a lot to say about a more sustainable world following Covid.  Crisis is always an opportunity.  Like all the other bankers nowadays, Fink champions ESGs: environmental, social and governance.  Because that’s what banking is all about.  Being woke and sustainable.

                Trilateral Michael Bloomberg: 

                Many people have remarked that they’d like to forget that 2020 ever happened. But the fact is, there’s never been a year more important to remember — and learn from. We faced four historic crises in 2020: a new global health crisis, an accelerating climate crisis, an American political crisis four years in the making, and a long-simmering crisis of racial injustice that finally reached a breaking point. The end of the year did not end any of the crises…The calendar will not save us. We have to do it ourselves, and that has been the focus of our work at Bloomberg Philanthropies…” Blah, blah, blah.

                Trilateral and billionaire David Rubenstein of private equity group Carlyle Group predicts the Federal Reserve will continue to hike interest rates through March to show its commitment to fight inflation, despite the SVB collapse.

                I’ll end with Trilateral Timothy Geithner, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York from 2003 to 2009 and appointed United States Secretary of the Treasury by President Obama, a position Geithner held from 2009 to 2013.  Geithner’s mentors included Robert Rubin and Lawrence Summers.  His tenure oversaw the financial crisis of 2007–08 and the “Great Recession.”  At the New York Fed, Geithner helped manage crises involving Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, and the American International Group; as Treasury Secretary, he oversaw allocation of $350 billion under the Troubled Asset Relief Program, enacted during the previous administration in response to the subprime mortgage crisis.”             

                Geithner left the Treasury for a fellowship at the Council on Foreign Relations in the International Economics department.  He was also director of the Policy Development and Review Department at the International Monetary Fund from 2001 to 2003.  He is now managing director of Warburg Pincus LLC, a global private equity firm.  Yes, those Warburgs!


            In the February 14, 2006 Sweet Liberty talk, Alan Watt said,These guys write what they're going to do, an event happens, right on cue, when they need it, ten years exactly to the date, where George Bush Sr. talked about the coming New World Order, the Big Idea.  The Masonic term, the Big Idea, you see.  That was on September 11th, 1990 and repeated in 1991.  So, I don't need to go over and over the events of 9/11 to convince myself what happened here.  You have to carry on from there and see what's evolved since then, because the push is now on for the US to fulfill its supposed Manifest Destiny, that which it was created to do.”

            I understand the human tendency to focus on the exciting mysteries that are dangled in front of us.  If we can just solve this one thing…if we can prove that big lie.  People dedicate the better part of their lives looking for the smoking gun.  Who was on the Grassy Knoll?  What brought the towers down?  Virus/no virus?  Germs or terrain theory?  Is the earth a sphere or is it flat?

                I’ve seen the world.  It’s bankers all the way down.
