Financial Vipers of Venice: Alchemical Money, Magical Physics, and Banking in the Middle Ages and Renaissance
Financial Vipers of Venice
Alchemical Money, Magical Physics, and Banking in the Middle Ages and Renaissance
by Joseph Farrell
In Babylon’s Banksters, Joseph Farrell dug up an ancient international class of bullion brokers, their penetration of the ancient temples, their control and suppression of an ancient knowledge and their strategy for usurping the money-issuing power of states and nations. Financial Vipers of Venice is the sequel to that ancient tale where we fast forward to medieval times, in the midst of a 1500-year story of a foggy swamp that became the financial center of the Western World.
Mr. Farrell approaches his books like expanded essays, and structures his contents in clearly delineated outline form. This is fortunate for the reader trying to keep pace with the weaving complexities of Farrell’s narrative. And there certainly is a narrative … only it’s delivered with all the twists and turns of a Tarantino movie.
“To sum up, thus far Bruno has accomplished the following…Subtly challenged the Calvinist doctrine of debt-interest in the hands of a private monopoly by distinguishing it from the ‘the public wealth,’ which is, in the final analysis, a not-so-subtle attack on the very idea of private monopoly central banking, that is, upon the banking practices of the northern Italian city-states, Florence and Venice, themselves.”
Our tale begins with Giordano Bruno, a 16th century Hermeticist who was executed by the Inquisition thanks in no small part to the complicity of the Venetian oligarchy. Mr. Farrell asks why. What motivated members of the Venetian elite — who had previously welcomed him in their homes — to hand over Bruno to the Inquisition and denounce him?
The answers Mr. Farrell uncovers reach into the heart of what differentiates Hermeticism — an ancient universal spirituality with roots in ancient Egypt — from the monotheistic religions that sprung up centuries later. Mr. Bruno reportedly had a vision of uniting the whole world under one single spirituality — Hermeticism — in which we are all connected to an infinite divinity — a philosophy of abundance. This vision stood in stark contrast to the debt-based philosophy of monotheism’s “original sin,” a debt which is impossible to repay.
Clearly, Mr. Bruno intended to upset the religious applecart which Mr. Farrell contends was a direct philosophical threat to the time’s dominant fiscal philosophy — a philosophy belonging to the elite oligarchy of medieval Venice.
“…for not only did these [Babylonian] slaves bring with them their religion and culture — a point that would explain the increasing ‘orientalization’ of the Roman imperium — but they also brought with them ‘their “Babylonian” business and banking practices.’ And of course, when Attila the Hun ravaged the peninsula and threatened even Rome itself, many of these mercantile families fled to northern Italy. It is here that we find, then, the connection between ancient Babylon’s ‘bullion brokers,’ Roma, and the later Italian city-states, with their banking oligarchies.”
Mr. Farrell engagingly paints a picture of medieval Venice ruled by an oligarchical elite, a network of families and familial relations that even then, spanned the centuries. Members of this elite network played influential roles in all parts of Venetian society — from political and military leaders to heads of banking and business. The tactics that Mr. Farrell illuminates bear a striking resemblance to the playbook of today’s oligarchy.
For instance, in describing one of the Venetian super-companies, Mr. Farrell states:
“A glance — and it can only be a glance — at the rise of the Peruzzi company will demonstrate just how quickly the medieval super-companies mastered all the techniques that many would now ascribe to the conspiratorial machinations of modern banksters, corporations, and groups like the Bilderbergers, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and so on.”
Clearly, the oligarchy rigs the game in favor of those within its circles, as the rise of the Venetian super-companies demonstrate. This was done by spreading into society, almost like a cancer.
“The penetration into the loci of public power — the church, professional occupations, military, and the organs of domestic and international politics — became the ‘playbook’ for financial elites ever after, and…the Venetians perfected this strategy to a very fine art.”
“Maintain careful posture of public neutrality in cases of political conflict, while continuing to act as financial agents for both sides.”
An Unbroken Story
Mr. Farrell outlines certain tactics of the medieval Venetian oligarchy which we find in eerie continuance by today’s 21st century global oligarchy. Using balance-of-power diplomacy to play both sides of a battle; absorb philosophical rivals; suppress hidden knowledge; and on. The continuity of strategy is certainly no passing matter.
“Consequently, one sees two familiar patterns — first appearing in ancient times, and continuing into modern times — of a financial elite that is actively seeking ancient sources of information, and seeking to monopolize and suppress it, lest that knowledge break out of the closed system of finance that made their power, position, and prestige, possible.”
Is it possible that there is an unbroken story that weaves through what we know of ancient Babylon, medieval Venice and our modern New World Oligarchy? Is there an ancient wisdom that has been suppressed this whole time, a wisdom that by its very suppression has allowed a small network of families to maintain control over humanity throughout recorded history?
The idea is definitely tantalizing and logical, at the least. Personally I think this idea holds a lot of weight. Though perhaps we’ll never truly be able to say whether it is or isn’t fact — simply because the genealogical and financial records to prove the theory likely no longer exist. Nevertheless, the Hermetic wisdom that Giordano Bruno tried to spread is likely no small matter. And for that, the Inquisition burned him.
It might be worth considering that if methods of empire are similar between today’s oligarchy and the oligarchy of Mr. Bruno’s time, then perhaps the two share in common methods of enforcing their control as well.
Remember Who You Are
Remember Who You Are
by David Icke
“… we are hurtling towards, at least at the moment, a global centralised fascist/communist dictatorship in which the very few are dictating the increasingly fine details of the lives of the very many.” (p2)
David Icke is one of the most important researchers of our time. And though no one person has all the answers to our current human enigma, Icke is at the leading edge when it comes to connecting the dots of the Conspiracy and putting this entangled mess into a coherent perspective.
I’m not exactly sure when I first heard of Mr. Icke and his fantastic claims of a Reptilian Agenda that exerts its fascist influence over humanity, but it all seemed very fanciful until I stumbled upon one of his day-long lectures on YouTube entitled “Melbourne 2009.”
Icke’s presentation gripped me. I was glued to my computer for nearly 8 hours while he completely changed the way I look at reality. And once the old constraints of reality were shattered, the story that is the Conspiracy, the movie that’s being played out for us, suddenly made perfect sense.
Even the shape-shifting Reptilian Agenda is a plausible scenario. And I’ve gone through my own roller coaster ride of immediately recognizing the Reptilian influence as clearly true … to rebelling against it, insisting that it must be a disinformation campaign … and now I feel that I am firmly back in the camp of supporting Mr. David Icke and his work 100%. But I do so with a slight caveat, which I will get to at the end of this post.
Nevertheless, I can’t stress enough the importance of what Mr. David Icke has to say, particularly in books like his most recent, Remember Who You Are. It truly is time for humanity to wake up and David Icke is among those who are sounding the alarm. The question is: Will we keep hitting the snooze button until our dream world becomes a nightmare?
* * *
“I can see from today’s perspective that my life has been perfect right from the start as a preparation for what I came here to do.” (p15)
The Man Behind the Book
Mr. Icke has lived his life in the spotlight from the outset of his career — first as a professional football (soccer) player, then as a television newsman and finally as a politician for England’s Green Party, before being awakened through a series of highly influential spiritual experiences in early 1990.
The spiritual experiences Icke began having were initiated by disembodied entities who Icke refers to as “They”. Unfortunately, that is the extent to which “They” are identified. I would imagine that “They” are beings of Light, higher dimensional extraterrestrials that are charged with helping to wake up humanity from our veiled slumber. I would have liked to know that “They” identified themselves to Mr. Icke, but as far as this book details, “They” is all we get.
Regardless, “They” began channeling messages to Icke (either directly into his mind, or through psychic mediums) that identified him as something akin to a prophet. He was told, for instance, that:
“Knowledge will be put into his mind and at other times he will be led to knowledge.” (p9)
At the end of 1990, Icke finished writing his first book, Truth Vibrations, and in it he described reality as akin to frequency — an important topic that he continues detailing in his most current work.
“The body’s five senses and its entire genetic structure is a decoding system. It picks up frequencies within a certain very narrow band and we perceive that band as the world that we ‘live in’. But all the other ‘worlds’ and expressions of infinite existence are sharing the same space. We can’t see them because they are resonating to frequencies that the five senses cannot pick up, just as you can’t hear Radio 1 when you are tuned to Radio 2. I said all this on a British television programme in 1991, during a time of enormous ridicule for me, and, 17 years later, in 2008 the famous American physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku, said the same, virtually word for word.” (p7)
(Icke’s claim of Kaku’s verbal plagiarism is true and can be seen on YouTube in a video called: “Michio Kaku Confirms Icke To Be Correct“)
Soon after Icke published Truth Vibrations, he became the laughing stock of England, thanks largely to a television interview on Terry Wogan’s BBC talk show “Wogan” in which Icke claimed to be the son of the “Godhead”. According to an interview Icke gave on British TV in the early ’90s, the majority of humanity are children of creator gods who themselves are descendants of the Godhead (or Prime Creator). During this explanation, Icke claimed that his spirit is not only directly descended from this primal Godhead — but that he is in direct communication with Prime Creator.
The British public and press mocked him relentlessly, interpreting his words to mean that he claimed to be the son of God, or the second coming of Jesus Christ. Icke, who had once been a respected public figure, said he couldn’t walk down the street without being laughed at. It was, as one can only imagine, truly a test of Icke’s will, and to his credit he carried on. Icke now refers to that time in his life as a necessary trial that forced him to shed any dependence or care of what the public might think of him. And now, fearless in the face of public response, Icke has been able to take his research into areas of what some might call extreme speculation. There was a time when I might have called Icke’s claim of a higher dimensional Reptilian influence on our planet extreme speculation. Now, however, I don’t. Icke, meanwhile, presses forward in the face of public skepticism with the courage and conviction that the story of humanity (and of our reality) which he has uncovered — the extremes of which, in particular — will prove in time to be vindicated.

“We cannot grasp what is happening in our lives or the world until we understand at least the themes and foundations of reality itself. What is ‘reality’? Who are we? Where are we? Where do we ‘come’ from?” (p24)
Thanks to the technological advancement of modern humanity we now have the terminology and reference points to describe reality more clearly to those of us in the West whose minds are dominated by left-brain conditioning. It’s becoming clearly apparent that the universe in which we live is an endlessly repeating fractal representation of itself (As Above, So Below), and we are able to see how our technological paradigm is an artificial microcosm of a multi-dimensional macrocosm.
“…we are living in a virtual-reality universe that we decode into (illusory) ‘physical’ form from an information construct that is the same in theme as the wireless Internet. The information is encoded in waveform or energetic vibration/resonance, and the mind-body is an incredibly advanced biological computer system which decodes that information and allows our Infinite Awareness to interact with this range of frequencies that we call the ‘world’.” (p26)
Our bodies are tuners much like a radio or television receiver and we are simply tuned into the frequency of this particular reality, decoding invisible waveform information via our five senses like a computer system decodes wireless Internet data into the virtual experience we call the World Wide Web.
Another very interesting point that suggests our reality is more of a subjective interpretation than concrete physical fact is the idea of hypnotism, and Icke provides some convincing examples of how the mind can be implanted with suggestions which then completely alter the way in which a hypnotized subject decodes reality. Icke tells a story of a hypnotized subject who was given instructions that when he was awakened from the trance he would not be able to see his own daughter. Once awakened, the subject not only couldn’t see his own daughter standing right in front of him, but he was able to see objects that his daughter was standing in front of. In other words, the subject was able to see right through her as if she wasn’t standing there at all. (The source of this story is from author Michael Talbot, who relates witnessing this experience is his book The Holographic Universe.)
“Humanity as a whole is being programmed to decode reality in the desired way – desired by the controllers – by having beliefs and perceptions implanted through ‘education’, the media, religion, doctors, scientists, politicians, and so on (p31) … This monopoly of the media by a few corporations, ultimately owned by the same families, is not primarily about money. It is about programming the perceptions of the population so that we perceive self and the world in the way that suits them and their aims.” (p45)
In other words, Icke suggests that the population at large is being subjected to mass mind control techniques. The vast majority of us are, to some extent, living in a trance of limited awareness.
[*Further explanations on the holographic nature of reality can be found in Michael Talbot’s The Holographic Universe and Lynne McTaggart’s The Field, both of which detail leading edge scientific research into our multi-dimensional waveform reality.]

“The Illuminati say in their own documents that the only danger to their plans is what they call ‘maverick people’; and truly maverick people are heart people. They are unpredictable, intuitive and inspired.” (p413-414)
Icke truly shines when he deconstructs reality into a matrix of vibrational information. Ultimately what he is doing is teaching spirituality to those of us in the West who are dominated by the left side of the brain. He is cracking open our minds to be able to see a more expansive view of reality. This is a necessary step for many of us if we are to understand the true nature of the Conspiracy, because the Conspiracy functions beyond the scope of normal everyday perception. Humanity in its current state is often described as being imprisoned in a cell without walls, a prison without bars. The Conspiracy achieves this state of control by working beyond the normal realms of perception.
“The ‘game’ is interactive and there is a constant interchange of information between ‘the game’ (the waveform construct, or Metaphysical Universe) and those experiencing the game — humans, non-humans of every conceivable kind, animals, trees, everyone and everything. We can play the game or be played by the game. We can live life or let life live us. It all depends on the level of awareness of the ‘player’. There is nothing malevolent about the ‘game’. It was created as a sort of cosmic vibrational theme park to allow the Infinite to experience itself through its infinite expressions. The ‘game’ was created with love, by the Infinite that is love: Infinite Love is the only truth — everything else is illusion.” (p133)
Most of humanity, unfortunately, is being played by those who understand the “game” in a far more sophisticated way. But as Icke deconstructs reality for us, we are being afforded the opportunity to understand how we are being manipulated.
The two key elements used by the Illuminati to advance the manipulation of humanity are what Icke calls Problem-Reaction-Solution and The Totalitarian Tiptoe.
* * *
“There are two mass mind and manipulation techniques that are vital to understand. I dubbed the first one a long time ago: ‘Problem-Reaction-Solution’. I call the second the ‘Totalitarian Tiptoe’. They work in concert to advance Illuminati plans by justifying changes they want to impose while hiding the connections between world events.” (p175)
Problem-Reaction-Solution and The Totalitarian Tiptoe
We can clearly see what Icke terms Problem-Reaction-Solution (PRS) in the events surrounding the 9/11 attacks on the United States. The attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were the Problem. The public Reaction was fear and a desire for the government to respond in a heavy-handed way. The Solution was a new set of draconian laws (thanks in large part to the Patriot Act) that have served to shred this nation’s Constitution, empower a police state mentality, desensitize the population to invasive checkpoints and slowly strip us of civil rights that many in this country are only too willing to forfeit in exchange for what they feel is protection against future terrorist activity. Not to mention an endless series of wars which are uniting Western powers to trample through the Middle East.
Icke describes PRS like this:
“(1) You create a problem. It could be a terrorist attack, a financial crash or a war — whatever suits the outcome that you are looking for. You then blame someone or something else for the problem that you have covertly created. (2) You want a reaction of fear and ‘do something’ from the public when you tell them through an unquestioning lap-dog media the version of the problem that you want people to believe, and the repeater media reports your version of events as if it’s true. This could be that Osama bin Laden orchestrated 9/11 from a cave in Afghanistan; or that swine flu is deadly and broke out on a pig farm in Mexico, when it didn’t affect a single pig worldwide. (3) You propose the solutions to the problems that you have created, and those solutions advance your transformation of the world.” (p175)
Once you become accustomed to this formula, you can almost see it being enacted on a daily basis. Once you understand how the Illuminati play the game, mainstream media news reports clearly reveal themselves for the propaganda that they truly are. And once the propaganda of the news media becomes clear, it becomes readily apparent that the manner in which all things are connected leads to an increasingly centralized global control structure.
One needs only to follow the money. Unfortunately, this money trail is not detailed in Remember Who You Are. But if we look at how every single nation in the world is beholden and hopelessly indebted to the global central banking system that culminates in the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, it only takes a little bit of imagination to see how the pyramid-structure of global control begins to take shape. We are as a world increasingly under the thumb of banking dynasties with names like, among others, Rockefeller, Warburg and Rothschild.
“…the world needs to understand this. America, via the Rothschilds and Rockefellers, is owned by the Rothschild Zionist secret society. They own and control the banks that crashed the American (and world) economy and put Americans and vast numbers of others across the planet out of work and on the street; and they own the Federal Reserve cartel that bailed out the banks with stupendous amounts of credit ‘money’ which the American people will be paying back for generations, if indeed they ever do.” (p242)
I highly recommend a pair of documentaries that expose the central bank conspiracy throughout the history of America. These two documentaries, both produced by the brilliant Bill Still, clearly explain how this central banking system, epitomized by the Federal Reserve, have literally enslaved the globe in a web of debt. Please see The Money Masters and The Secret of Oz.
Up until this point in the story, Icke is largely working with confirmable data. Icke is far from the only person to be shedding light on a Conspiracy that has been gaining influence and power through many generations. He is, however, among the few that tie spirituality and a multi-dimensional reality into the fabric of this control matrix.
However, Icke does not stop there.
* * *
“There are Reptilian entities living inside the Earth that operate within visible light, as do the Greys, and there are many Reptilian bases underground where they interact with ‘human’ scientists to introduce enslaving and controlling technology on the surface and continue their genetic experimentation. The cutting edge of ‘science’ is not even close to what you see in the public domain. There are also bases on other frequency dimensions of the Earth, because the centre of the Reptilian power structure operates from frequencies beyond visible light. In other words, we can’t see them. They can come in and out of visible light using technology, and by energetic means, but they generally operate outside of human sight. I am sure that humans could see them when we had access to a much greater range of visual frequency, but since the genetic intervention we can’t see them unless they enter our frequency range.” (p. 88)
The Reptilians and the Saturn-Moon Matrix
Icke claims that the elite at the center of this control structure — the central bankers and the royal families throughout history — are genetically different than the rest of humanity. According to Icke, they aren’t entirely human. Rather they are human/reptilian hybrids who trace their history back to a higher dimensional reptilian race of extraterrestrials who invaded and took over the Earth hundreds of thousands of years ago. These reptilian ETs feed off of the negative energy produced by humanity’s fear and they exert their influence over the planet through the hybrid bloodlines. These hybrid bloodlines keep their reptilian genetics intact by incestuous intermarriage (generally by marrying cousins).
Icke claims that the ETs are responsible for disconnecting the majority of humanity’s DNA to keep us trapped in five-sense reality and thereby limiting the extent of our spiritual experience, disconnecting us from Source and ultimately trapping us in a prison without bars. (This conclusion seems to run parallel to Zecharia Sitchin’s interpretation of ancient Mesopotamian tablets that detail an extra-terrestrial intervention around 400,000 years ago that genetically altered humanity to its current physical form. I’m skeptical that an off-world reptilian race were the sole engineers of humanity in its current form. I am, however, certainly open to the idea that we were genetically modified at some point … but whether that modification came as the result of off-world ETs, or the churning energy fields of the Universe interacting with our DNA, or if it was the result of collective human intention, or a mixture of all that and more, I don’t yet have a firm answer.)
Icke continues that to further control the bounds of our perception, the reptilians broadcast certain frequencies from Saturn (via Saturn’s rings) which are picked up by the Moon and amplified to the Earth. These frequencies are, according to Icke, “blocking frequencies” which alter the organic, spiritual and loving frequencies broadcast by the center of the galaxy.
“[HAARP], together with GWEN-type technology on the ground, Smart Grids in the home and workplace, and so on, comprises a multi-level energetic defence shield to the Truth Vibrations. What was called the ‘Star Wars’ defence shield, created allegedly to stop incoming missiles, was primarily a front for establishing a planetary defence shield to block incoming information and awareness, and benevolent extraterrestrials/interdimensionals.” (p405)
Within the framework of the multi-dimensional reality that Icke cogently describes, the reptilians and their supposed Saturn-Moon matrix are entirely plausible, and Icke provides a litany of circumstantial evidence to support his claims. I am certainly not about to say that Icke is wrong, for there is clearly something sinister at work and there is plenty of historical and circumstantial evidence to support the claim that off-worlders have been playing significant roles during various stages of humanity’s development — through to current times.
* * *
“…I have long said that a Third World War is planned at some point involving China, Russia, Europe and North America with the trigger coming out of the Middle East through conflict involving Israel and Muslim states that will draw in the major powers.” (p277) … “…the plan is to devastate the major powers in the world – the United States, Europe, Russia and China – and then introduce their global structure of centralised dictatorship with a global army ‘to stop a world war ever happening again’.” (p298)
The Game Plan
The Conspiracy likes to spread disinformation to keep the general population off guard and unaware. If we know what the game plan is, if we are expecting it, my feeling is that the Plan becomes less and less likely to occur. Despite the fact that the psychotic murderous criminals who run the world refer to themselves as Illuminati, being exposed to the light is the last thing that they want.
Nevertheless, we also know that the so-called Illuminati prey off of humanity’s fear. Our fear allows them to proceed with what Icke insightfully refers to as Problem-Reaction-Solution and the Totalitarian Tiptoe.
With the preceding in mind, I am going to enumerate the Game Plan as Icke details it in Remember Who You Are. My purpose is not to induce fear, but rather to spread awareness of a possible scenario that we as a globally connected consciousness are increasingly preventing from occurring simply by waking up and exposing it. As more and more of us continue to live in an awakened state, the process by which the Game Plan proceeds becomes increasingly apparent and we become armed with an expanded view that allows us to proceed in constructive ways — instead of trance-like reactionary ways that only serve to propagate the Problem-Reaction-Solution methodology.
According to Icke, the Game Plan is:
- “They establish a vibrational defence shield to maintain the Earth’s atmosphere within frequency bands that will cause most of humanity to remain asleep.” (p406)
- “A Third World War is planned … involving China, Russia, Europe and North America with the trigger coming out of the Middle East” (p277)
- The President will declare a cyber-security emergency and “either close down or restrict any information network ‘in the interest of national security’… They plan to do this … when it is vital for them to stop information reaching the public to expose what they are doing.”(p373)
- “The major powers in the world – the United States, Europe, Russia and China” will be devastated” (p298)
- The Conspiracy will “then introduce their global structure of centralised dictatorship with a global army ‘to stop a world war ever happening again’.” (p298)
- “They are planning to project holograms into the sky to depict religious figures ‘returning’…An invasion by ‘aliens’, even whole ‘Planet Nibirus’, brown dwarfs, comets and other manifestations in the heavens and the sky can be projected holographically …If they announce a threat from an alien presence or invasion, don’t believe them.” (p403)
- The population will be reduced underneath a “jackboot structure of world government, world army, world central bank and single electronic currency.” (p266)
- Everybody will be “microchipped by law and connected to a global computer network and the Global Positioning System (GPS).” Children will be microchipped at birth. (p266)
- “They want control of all food production through a handful of corporations.” (p266)
- “The water supply is planned to be drugged.” (p266)
- “There would be compulsory vaccinations to devastate the human immune system.” (p266)
- “A Nazi-like global police state would be imposed in which views that oppose the official line would be banned.” (p266)
- “A surveillance system would ensure that no-one could do anything without the authorities knowing about it.” (p266)
Perhaps unsurprisingly, these same themes are apparent in George Orwell’s 1984 and Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, two authors who are reported to have been privy to the machinations of this global cabal.
“Combine the two [Orwell and Huxley] and you have the major themes of what is planned, and much of what they say is clearly happening today. Were these remarkable examples of prophecy only a lucky guess? Oh, no. Orwell and Huxley knew what was coming — unless it was stopped.” (p267)
* * *
“We need people all over the world in every town, city, village and community to step forward as organisers of groups and gatherings of people willing to come together regularly — several times a week — to connect their energy fields and project love, peace and harmony into the atmosphere … I have called this project ‘Awakening the World — Every Heart Makes a Difference’.” (p409-410)
The Solution – Peaceful Non-Cooperation/Non-Compliance
We don’t have to acquiesce to the Game Plan — whether or not it is being controlled by reptilian hybrids and their multi-dimensional off-world overlords or simply by psychotic, murderous criminals who lack any sort of empathy for their fellow human beings. And Icke is completely correct when he calls for peaceful non-cooperation and non-compliance.
We simply have to stop participating in their game.
- Turn off your TV. Or better yet, disconnect your cable box and return it.
- Support local organic farmers and family-owned farms; buy the majority of your groceries from farmers markets. Avoid corporate-produced foods; avoid preservatives and any other questionable ingredients. A good rule of thumb is: if it’s not produced by nature, don’t consume it.
- Start growing your own food in whatever fertile soil and available land you have.
- Begin storing seeds from whatever locally grown heirloom and organic (non-GMO, non-hybrid) fruits and vegetables that pass through your own kitchen.
- Remove your money from profit-driven commercial banks and use community-based credit unions.
- USE CASH WHENEVER POSSIBLE. Stop using credit cards that give the banksters a percentage of every transaction you make.
- Get to know your neighbors.
- Approach life from a heart perspective. Radiate LOVE.
- Be the change you want to see in the world.
If every single human on the planet were to suddenly stop what they were doing and instead radiated love to the planet at a single moment, our whole reality would change in an instant. We are that powerful.
Assuming, however, that a global mass heart-inspired consciousness event is unlikely to happen in the near future, Icke has an intermediate suggestion.
“Every day we bring people together at specific times for 20 minutes through the website to connect our hearts and minds, and focus love and heart coherence either on the planet in general or a specific place, person or event. We want tens of millions coming together as soon as possible — hundreds of millions eventually — and what a difference this will make to the world. We are diluting the energy of fear, anger, hatred and hostility and replacing it with love, peace and harmony — everything the Control System doesn’t want.” (p410)

Whether this is your first time being introduced to Mr. Icke or whether you’ve read every single one of his books since he first started publishing in the early ’90s, you have likely by this time formulated your own opinion on the man and the information he conveys. Whatever your conclusion is, I’m confident that it is valid for you.
My opinion on the Reptilian matter has fluctuated for two main reason. First, the idea that humanity’s problems are a result of off-world beings from beyond our perceptive dimension seems to remove responsibility, in a sense, from humanity for the suicidal, planet-destroying course we’ve taken. Instead, we are just pawns in the Dark Side’s game. And secondly, I have had a hard time swallowing the idea that the Dark Side could ever out-influence the Light — despite the reality of today’s world. Perhaps it has just been a more comfortable idea for me to conclude that humanity, as a result of being so severely separated from Divine Source, has simply chosen to take this course out of self-serving greed and a Lord of the Flies mentality.
However, as my research into the realm of multi-dimensional spirituality continues, I now firmly believe that there exists a myriad of benevolent ET beings from a whole host of distant star systems who have taken a vested interest in Earth during this time of Earth’s dimensional shift (aka the 2012 Transformation). These beings deliver their messages to humanity via channels (like Gina Lake, Patricia Cori, Patricia Pereira and many others) in order to help those who choose to ascend with Earth during this dimensional transformation. These beings are uplifted by the love and positive vibrations that humans emanate.
And since we live in a world of duality, then the converse of that must also be true. There must be malevolent entities who instead are nourished by the fear and negative vibrations generated by humans who are trapped in self-defeating modes of thought. I can then imagine that these entities, as Icke describes, have the ability to possess the host bodies offered to them during Illuminati ceremonies. This is a plausible scenario, in my opinion, to describe the hybrid human/reptilian beings that Mr. Icke claims are at the center of our global control structure.
Mr. Icke does a wonderful job of detailing the global control structure – although from a personal standpoint, I would certainly have appreciated referenced and sourced footnotes to accompany the research in this book. My only real caveat is this: the picture that Mr. Icke brilliantly paints lacks one crucial element – the forces of Light that are acting on humanity’s behalf. The Reptilian story is not the whole story. In my opinion, the Reptilians are simply parasites feeding on their host. There does seem to be, however, many levels of reality beyond which the Reptilians can operate — because self-serving entities can only evolve so far in our multi-dimensional matrix. Beyond the dimensions within which the Reptilians operate, there exists higher dimensional entities who are dedicated to “Service to Others.” Some of these “Service to Others” entities have been involved with planet Earth since long before the Reptilians arrived here, and their story is equally as important.
Nevertheless, in order to truly understand what is occurring on the ground, right here and right now, Remember Who You Are is a must read.

ADDENDUM – 10/19/2012
I feel that I need to add a slight note after giving the Reptilian topic some more consideration. I don’t know that the negative entities that may exist at the heart of our global control structure are Reptilians. I don’t know what physical form they assume, if any — or, perhaps, they assume more than one. At this point in time, I don’t know.
We will definitely be delving further into this topic as this blog continues.
The Banking Crash of 2008 and the Federal Reserve’s Involvement Explained
I’m sure this idea is already out there, but at the time of the economic crash of 2008, I had no idea why we had a housing bubble that suddenly burst and destroyed the American economy.
After watching Bill Still’s brilliant documentaries The Money Masters and The Secret of Oz, I now have a much better understanding of monetary policy. So I’m going to succinctly explain the crash of 2008. If you remember, the media told us that the reasons behind the crash were far too complicated to explain, what with credit-default swaps and toxic assets and all sorts of fiduciary jargon that was meant to confuse an issue that, at its heart, is clear and simple.
It all has to do with, as Mr. Still puts it, who controls the money supply. When those who control the money supply provide enough money into the system for the system to grow, we have good years. When those who control the money supply contract that supply, we have lean years. The Federal Reserve controls the ebb and flow of the money supply via interest rates. The chart above shows the history of the Fed’s interest rate policy over that past 55+ years.
Before we get to the crash of 2008, I want to make a quick point about something that George W. Bush said when he first took office in 2001. I remember this time quite clearly. We had just finished two terms of economic prosperity that the Clinton administration rode through like wave surfers. If you notice the chart above, the Fed began lowering interest rates a little bit in 1990, then the rates plunged starting in 1992, releasing the constraints on the flow of money that facilitated the technology and dot.com boom which was just around the corner. In 1995, the dot.com bubble officially began and the Fed began raising the interest rates. It’s certainly logical to think that the Fed was trying to rein in the free spending of the bubble. But it’s interesting to note in the chart above that interest rates were raised significantly and quickly at the end of 1999 through to 2001 – well beyond the burst of the dot.com bubble in March, 2000.
Although the bubble had burst in 2000, its effects were generally limited to the investor class. Our government was operating with budget surpluses at the time! So it seemed puzzling to me that after Bush took office, he started making claims about our economy heading towards a recession. Here’s a quote from one of his speeches in March 2001:
“Tax relief is central to my plan to encourage economic growth, and we can proceed with tax relief without fear of budget deficits, even if the economy softens. Projections for the surplus in my budget are cautious and conservative. They already assume an economic slowdown in the year 2001. Even if the slowdown were to turn into a recession similar to that of 1990 and ’91, the Congressional Budget Office projects that the 10-year surplus would shrink by only 2 percent, from a little more than 5.6 trillion to a little less than 5.5 trillion.” (source: presidency.ucsb.edu)
Bush’s outlook on the economy predicted an economic slowdown because he knew that the Fed would continue to raise interest rates — and thereby contracting the money supply. I think it’s also worth noting in the chart above that the recession of 1990 and 1991 to which President Bush alludes follows a spike in interest rates by the Fed — another contraction of money followed by an economic slowdown.
So if we look at the chart above around the end of 2001, just after the event of 9/11, the Fed drops the interest rate like a lead balloon. I’m sure that the reasoning was to spur economic activity following the attacks of 9/11 … and perhaps, as well, to make wartime government borrowing more attractive.
It also facilitated the buying of houses and property for little to no money down, with low variable payments and attractive initial offers. People bought on credit. Interest rates were low. The economy was vibrant and active.
Then, at the end of 2004, the Fed began raising the interest rates sharply. People’s variable rate mortgages shot through the roof — beyond what they were able to afford. Did the Fed help these people by lowering the rates? No, they flatlined the rates sometime in 2006 and held them steady until 2008 when enough people defaulted on their loans to collapse the banking industry.
So We, the People, then had to bail out the banks because, as a result of the Fed’s interest rate spike, people were defaulting on their loans.
Ever wonder would have happened if we didn’t bail out the banking system? Here’s what Congressman Brad Sherman [D-CA] said on October 2, 2008:
“The only way they can pass this bill is by creating and sustaining a panic atmosphere. That atmosphere is not justified. Many of us were told in private conversations that if we voted against this bill, on Monday, that the sky would fall, the market would fall two or three thousand points the first day, another couple thousand the second day. And a few members were even told that there would be martial law in America if we voted no.”

Joseph Farrell spans the ages in Babylon’s Banksters, tying together an ancient international class of what he terms “bullion brokers,” their involvement with humanity’s ancient temples (along with the predictive capabilities of the temples’ astrological functions), the control and suppression of technologies and ultimately the total usurpation of the money-issuing power of states and nations around the globe.
The Background Story
Babylon’s Banksters begins with a theoretical scenario in which two ancient civilizations pre-dating our historical eras destroyed each other in a great and encompassing final war. The devastation was so complete as to wipe out both of the civilizations’ technological capabilities.
Humanity’s remains were left to pick up the pieces and begin again from square one — while a select class of survivors kept shreds of the ancient wisdom alive. Sacred geometry and its powerful secrets were guarded in the temples and secret societies. Mystery schools were established to maintain the wisdom among a small class of adepts.
The story continues to suggest that those who have controlled this wisdom from ancient times are the predecessors, if not ancestors of those at the top of the financial pyramid today. And those at the top continue to use predictive cyclical patterns to their own enriching and often nefarious ends. But their aims are not simply to control the money supply, but to control the physics of the technologies that could, on the one hand, free humanity from this monetary control, and on the other, destroy us once again.
Ultimately, the story of these ancient bullion brokers and their progeny is their search to re-establish the technology that was lost following the theoretical great and final battle of pre-history.
The Power of Money
The most important factor in Farrell’s equation of physics, religion and finance is the control of the money supply. And the banksters will go to any length to ensure that control rests with them.
Farrell cites evidence that strongly suggests Presidents Lincoln, Garfield and Kennedy were all assassinated for their attempts to take the money-issuing power away from the privately controlled central bank — with the intention of issuing debt-free government created money.
Farrell traces evidence that central bankers have historically flooded the market with counterfeit bills whenever the U.S. has intended to oversee the issuance of its own currency — intending to devalue the non-central bank currency. Once devalued, the banksters then offer the central bank as a stabilizing solution.
This scheme of inflating a nation’s currency to induce instability, then offer the central banking system to stabilize the system has been, according to Farrell’s evidence, the method used by the international class of bullion brokers throughout history.
Astrology & Cyclical Trends
Following the Great Depression, economic analyst Edward Dewey and his associate Edwin Dakin were commissioned by President Herbert Hoover to find the cause of the economic downturn via statistical analysis.
Dewey and Dakin found that it’s not just the economy that rises and falls according to waves that resonate in predictable patterns. Everything in nature follows these same wave patterns.
Farrell details the story of Dewey and Dakin’s research and notes that when these waves hit their lows during certain astrological conjunctions, that’s when all hell breaks loose. Our worst economic depressions have apparently occurred in line with noteworthy astrological alignments. Farrell suggests that banksters have used these predictive elements — tying in known economic cycles with certain astrological conjunctions — to exacerbate downturns and take advantage of the crisis.
A Global Story
But this is not just an American story. It is a multi-headed beast and the banksters are not the only ones playing.
Farrell suggests that the American economic collapse of 2008 was a sneak attack of sorts by the Chinese. Farrell also notes that the Nazi party, although financed by the banksters during their rise to power, ultimately turned the relationship sour by its move to create state-issued debt-free money.
Even as far back as the Peloponnesian War, Farrell claims that Sparta was the sole holdout among a republic of Greek states that had already fallen into the hands of the international bankers’ central banks — and its debt-creating policy of money issuance.
Fast forward to the annual ultra-secretive Bildergerg Group meetings. Farrell suggests that the first assembly of the Bilderberg Group was ultimately a meeting of detente between the banksters and the fabulously wealthy post-war Nazis that had escaped to South America to resume research on advanced physics technology — things like the legendary anti-gravity, hyper dimensional Nazi “bell” device.
Tying It All Together
Farrell covers a lot of ground in a short amount of space and he undoubtedly has a brilliant mind, along with a healthy background on a variety of esoteric subjects. That brilliance and his vast knowledge spurs him to launch into a number of disparate directions.
However, this book is not meant to be a chronological tale of the international banksters through history. Rather, it is a detailed essay on where physics, astrology, ancient religion and alchemical transmutation tie into the banksters ability to create something out of nothing — in other words, their ability to transmutate something valueless like our existing fiat currency into something that not simply has value, but it has ultimately become the purpose of most of our lives.
That process is, in a sense, alchemical magic.
For those, like myself, who are interested to read further into the chronological story of who these banksters are and how they’ve influenced the course of our history, Farrell’s sources for this book are a treasure chest of information:

The True Story of the Bilderberg Group, Daniel Estulin
The Anglo-American Establishment: From Rhodes to Cliveden, Carroll Quigley

The Unseen Hand
The Unseen Hand
by A. Ralph Epperson
I’m not one that needs to be convinced of a global New World Order conspiracy. I already know it exists. I see it and feel it creep into every aspect of our daily lives – into the corporate control of our political system, corporate control of the global food supply, the introduction of a menagerie of toxic chemicals into processed foods, the spraying of pesticides, the chemtrails, the mind control propaganda fed to us on television, and on and on. So I’m going into The Unseen Hand: An Introduction to the Conspiratorial View of History knowing full well that the Conspiracy already exists.
The Unseen Hand was not a book that was originally on my reading list. I had been ruing the demise of the local independent bookstores, and had been in a conversation with a business associate who shared my feelings. Although we both agreed that the Internet has brought us the ease of finding whatever books we choose, he made a point that without the local bookstore there is no more browsing the shelves. You have to know what you’re looking for, he contended, instead of stumbling upon some gem by chance because it shared the shelf of a particular choice topic. Although I didn’t agree one hundred percent with his sentiment, I did see his point. So it was with this background that I went into a local independent bookstore that I had only recently discovered existed. The bookstore is called Alias, and it is literally the last of its kind in my area.
Inside of Alias, I found they had a thickly stocked section of esoteric books – most of which I couldn’t afford. But I had to buy something. I had to support the local bookstore. And at 400+ pages, The Unseen Hand seemed like a pretty interesting trove of information.
Author A. Ralph Epperson makes it clear in the subtitle that this book is an “introduction.” It is rife with information, but it is an overview of his research into the research of others. And the important point there is that few of his sources are primary sources. So although the footnotes are 30 pages long, the pages are filled with non-primary sources – often American Opinion and The Review of the News (two publications published by the John Birch Society.) Nevertheless, the timeline in Unseen Hand spans from the founding of America to the 1980s (this edition was published in 1994). So, understandably, it’s a lot of conspiracy to cover.
The Point of View
Another important point to consider (when reading any book) is the point of view from which the author’s voice originates. It soon became clear to me that Epperson is a religious man, a Christian, whose views are shaped by what he sees as the Conspiracy’s goal to snuff out God and religion.
Epperson sees the Conspiracy as a communist/socialist plot to destroy individuality, property ownership, God and our republican form of government and replace it with a totalitarian form rule. He begins the book by explaining the freedom that this nation’s founding fathers wrote into the founding documents and then continues to examine how the “money power” has stealthily infiltrated the system, using its influence to control economic booms and busts, foment wars and create problems to which it then offers solutions that ultimately result in further consolidation of the Conspiracy’s power.
And he’s right.
From the American Revolution to the Civil War to the Federal Reserve, World Wars 1 & 2, the sweep of communism through Cuba and South America, the atomic bomb and the infiltration of our political system by groups such as the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission, Epperson details how the money power has undermined us, curtailed us and has kept us fighting amongst ourselves all the while crushing us under an oppressive system of ever-increasing debt.
World War II
I think among the more interesting points in the book are the events following World War II. America and its allies had just given everything they had to fight the good fight and keep fascist totalitarianism from sweeping through Europe. And then following the war, the Allies freely gave Russia the green light to sweep communist totalitarianism through Eastern Europe.
Some may view the Conspiracy as simply the invention of the paranoid. I don’t. I’ve investigated it enough to know that not only is it real, but it infects every aspects of the average sleepwalker’s life. And if you don’t have your eye on the Conspiracy, then you are a sleepwalker.
And when I say “every aspect” I mean every aspect. I don’t believe, as Epperson contends, that the Conspiracy means to destroy God and religion. Rather, it aims to control it, just as it aims to control everything else. The Conspiracy funds both sides of every war. It funds both sides of every issue. It most likely funded and had a back-door involvement in the recent Occupy movement – along with the Anonymous Hacker phenomenon. Since the Conspiracy prints our money and puts us in debt for its creation, it has a limitless supply of funds. And it uses them.
I do not believe, as Epperson contends, that the Conspiracy meant to supplant American democracy with communism. Rather, it meant to create and foment communism as the enemy of capitalism so we would be in a state of never-ending conflict. And as communism faded, the Conspiracy brought us terrorism.
Because we must always have an enemy to fight if they are to control us.
