The first in the series, the world is in good hands, concentrated mainly on the BIS and how it surrounded itself with diplomatic immunity and barriers to control, together with a clear philosophy of “profit is all”. There are no loyalties. While this country is at war with Germany, trade continues with the enemy and if that western money goes into guns to shoot young western men, so be it.
The second in the series, sovereignty, concentrated on who actually owns this nation of ours – the Crown, The Crown Temple, parliament or us? It showed the interrelationship between the BIS, the City and the other elements.
The third in the series, wheels within wheels, concentrated on how far one should research and that the further you go, e.g. the Queen’s identity as a descendant of the Guelphs, the more murky the story gets. The Guelphs, of course, were part of the Venetian Black Nobility and that is not a nice story.
The fourth, below, concentrates on the Venetians, as they’re known today [not the people of Venice – that’s something else] and it explains a whole lot of why things are happening today the way they are.
Basically, the thing which has always puzzled me is that if we remove exhortations to good, e.g. the Christian or, say, Buddhist messages, then does Man settle into a happy existence, free of malice and with everything going well from that point forward? Does it hell. It always goes downhill into the grimmest and darkest scenarios.
Is it the essentially evil nature of Man or is it something else, some malcontented force pushing this human misery and fooling people into wrong choices? Now, as a Christian, I could give you a simple answer to that but you, as non-Christians, would never accept it. So the compromise position is to nail that which can be nailed, something identifiable and tangible and one need go no further than the Venetians for that.
They’re not the only ones – they have compatriots all over the world, likeminded figures in China, for example.
At the center of oligarchy is the idea that certain families are born to rule as an arbitrary elite, while the vast majority of any given population is condemned to oppression, serfdom, or slavery. During most of the past 2,500 years, oligarchs have been identified by their support for the philosophical writings of Aristotle and their rejection of the epistemology of Plato.
Aristotle asserted that slavery is a necessary institution, because some are born to rule and others to be ruled. He also reduced the question of human knowledge to the crudest sense certainty and perception of “facts.” Aristotle’s formalism is a means of killing human creativity, and therefore represents absolute evil. This evil is expressed by the bestialist view of the oligarchs that human beings are the same as animals.
Oligarchs identify wealth purely in money terms, and practice usury, monetarism, and looting at the expense of technological advancement and physical production. Oligarchs have always been associated with the arbitrary rejection of true scientific discovery and scientific method in favor of open anti-science or more subtle obscurantist pseudo-science.
This is touched on in the next post.
The oligarchy has believed for millennia that the Earth is overpopulated; the oligarchical commentary on the Trojan War was that this conflict was necessary in order to prevent greater numbers of mankind from oppressing “Mother Earth.” They’ve constantly stressed race and racial characteristics, often as a means for justifying slavery.
In international affairs, oligarchs recommend such methods as geopolitics, understood as the method of “divide and conquer,” which lets one power prevail by playing its adversaries one against the other. Oligarchical policy strives to maintain a balance of power among such adversaries for its own benefit, but this attempt always fails in the long run and leads to new wars.
The essence of oligarchism is summed up in the idea of the empire, in which an elite identifying itself as a master race rules over a degraded mass of slaves or other oppressed victims. If oligarchical methods are allowed to dominate human affairs, they always create a breakdown crisis of civilization, with economic depression, war, famine, plague, and pestilence.
Examples of this are the Fourteenth-century Black Plague and the Thirty Years War (1618-48), both of which have links to Venetian intelligence.
The post-industrial society and the derivatives crisis in our own time have brought about the potential for a new collapse of civilization. This crisis can only be reversed by repudiating in practice the axioms of the oligarchical mentality.
A pillar of the oligarchical system is the family fortune, or fondo, as it is called in Italian. The continuity of the family fortune which earns money through usury and looting is often more important than the biological continuity across generations of the family that owns the fortune.
The long and tortuous path of peoples through history sees the Khazars in the Holy Land and part of the Canaanites eventually in northern Italy, adopting the name “Sepharvaim” for deceptive purposes. They later became known as Venetians, and by marrying into European royalty and aristocracy, the “black nobility.”
In the pre-Christian world around the Mediterranean, oligarchical political forces included Babylon in Mesopotamia. The “whore of Babylon” condemned in the Apocalypse of St. John the Divine, is not a mystical construct, but a very specific cartel of oligarchical families. Other oligarchical centers included Hiram of Tyre and the Phoenicians. The Persian Empire was an oligarchy. In the Greek world, the center of oligarchical banking and intelligence was the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, whose agents included Lycurgus of Sparta and, later, Aristotle.
In Venice, the largest fondo was the endowment of the Basilica of St. Mark, which was closely associated with the Venetian state treasury, and which absorbed the family fortunes of nobles who died without heirs. This fondo was administered by the procurers of St. Mark, whose position was one of the most powerful under the Venetian system.
Around this central fondo were grouped the individual family fortunes of the great oligarchical families, such as the Mocenigo, the Cornaro, the Dandolo, the Contarini, the Morosini, the Zorzi, and the Tron. When the Venetian oligarchy transferred many of its families and assets to northern Europe, the Venetian fondi provided the nucleus of the great Bank of Amsterdam, which dominated Europe during the Seventeenth century, and of the Bank of England, which became the leading bank of the Eighteenth century.
Venice was the enemy of Charlemagne. Charlemagne’s son, King Pepin of Italy, tried unsuccessfully to conquer the Venetian lagoon. Charlemagne was forced to recognize Venice as a part of the eastern or Byzantine Empire, under the protection of the Emperor Nicephorus. Venice was never a part of Western Civilization.
Over the next four centuries, Venice developed as a second capital of the Byzantine Empire through marriage alliances with certain Byzantine dynasties and conflicts with the Holy Roman Empire based in Germany. The Venetian economy grew through usury and slavery. By 1082, the Venetians had tax-free trading rights in the entire Byzantine Empire.
The Venetians were one of the main factors behind the Crusades against the Muslim power in the eastern Mediterranean. In the Fourth Crusade of A.C.E. 1202, the Venetians used an army of French feudal knights to capture and loot Constantinople, the Orthodox Christian city which was the capital of the Byzantine Empire.
During the 1200’s, the Venetians, now at the apex of their military and naval power, set out to create a new Roman Empire with its center at Venice. They expanded into the Greek islands, the Black Sea, and the Italian mainland. They helped to defeat the Hohenstaufen rulers of Germany and Italy. Venetian intelligence assisted Genghis Khan as he attacked and wiped out powers that had resisted Venice.
The Venetians caused the death of the poet and political figure Dante Alighieri, who developed the concept of the modern sovereign nation-state in opposition to the Venetian plans for empire. A series of wars with Genoa led later to the de facto merger of Venice and Genoa. The Venetian bankers, often called Lombards, began to loot many parts of Europe with usurious loans.
Henry III of England in the years after 1255 became insolvent after taking huge Lombard loans to finance foreign wars at 120-180 percent interest. These transactions created the basis for the Venetian Party in England. When the Lombard bankers went bankrupt because the English failed to pay, a breakdown crisis of the European economy ensued. This led to a new collapse of European civilization, including the onset of the Black Plague, which depopulated the continent.
In the midst of the chaos, the Venetians encouraged their ally Edward III of England, to wage war against France in the conflict that became the Hundred Years War (1339-1453), which hurled France into chaos before St. Joan of Arc defeated the English. This was then followed by the Wars of the Roses in England. As a result of Venetian domination, the Fourteenth century had become a catastrophe for civilization.
In the midst of the crisis of the 1300’s, the friends of Dante and Petrarch laid the basis for the Italian Golden Renaissance, which reached its culmination with Nicolaus of Cusa, Pope Pius II, and the Medici-sponsored Council of Florence of 1439. The Venetians fought the Renaissance with a policy of expansion on the Italian mainland, or terra firma, which brought them to the outskirts of Milan. More fundamentally, the Venetians promoted the pagan philosophy of Aristotle against the Christian Platonism of the Florentines.
Around AD1400, European power centers coalesced into two camps: the Ghibellines, who supported the Hohenstaufen family, and the Guelphs, from Welf, the German prince who competed with Frederick for control of the Holy Roman Empire. The Pope allied himself with the Guelphs. All modern European history stems directly from the struggle between these two powers.
The Guelphs are also called the Neri, Black Guelphs, or Black Nobility, and supported William of Orange in his seizure of the throne of England, which eventually resulted in the formation of the Bank of England and the East India Company.
When Cusa and his friends succeeded in reuniting the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox and other eastern churches at the Council of Florence, the Venetians tried to sabotage this result.
The Venetians tried to use the power of the new nation-states, especially France, to crush Milan and allow further Venetian expansion. But ambassadors for the king of France and the Austrian emperor met at Cambrai in December 1508 and agreed to create a European league for the dismemberment of Venice.
An immediate target of the Venetians had always been Milan and a broader target – the papacy.
The reformation as a ploy
The leading figure of the Protestant Reformation, the first Protestant in modern Europe, was Venice’s Cardinal Gasparo Contarini, who was also the leader of the Catholic Counter-Reformation. Contarini was a pupil of the Padua Aristotelian Pietro Pomponazzi, who denied the immortality of the human soul. Contarini pioneered the Protestant doctrine of salvation by faith alone, with no regard for good works of charity.
He organized a group of Italian Protestants called gli spirituali, including oligarchs like Vittoria Colonna and Giulia Gonzaga. Contarini’s networks encouraged and protected Martin Luther and later John Calvin of Geneva. Contarini sent his neighbor and relative Francesco Zorzi to England to support King Henry VIII’s plan to divorce Catherine of Aragon.
As the Counter-Reformation advanced, the Contarini networks split into two wings – the pro-Protestant spirituali, who later evolved into the giovani and who serviced growing networks in France, Holland, England, and Scotland. The other wing were the zelanti, oriented toward repression and the Inquisition, and typified by Pope Paul IV Caraffa. The zelanti evolved into the oligarchical party called the vecchi, who serviced Venetian networks in the Vatican and the Catholic Hapsburg dominions. The apparent conflict of the two groups was orchestrated to serve Venetian projects.
Pause for breath
The obvious criticism here is that this seems to be giving inordinate credit for influence to the Venetians when there were homegrown oligarchs and tyrants in all the nation states, all pursuing their own dreams of expansion and conquest.
This is so but three factors have to be born in mind – the Lombards who were financing all European powers at the time against one another, the Papacy which meant [until Henry VIII] that dictums were coming constantly from Italy and the church had had, for centuries, a most powerful grip on the hearts and minds of men and women all over Europe and then there was the intrigue, the intelligence services and the intermarrying into the great families of Europe by the Venetians themselves.
Henry’s marriage to Catherine illustrates in itself the extent to which the English monarchy was in no way head-in-the-sand and isolationist. Look at how the Reformation came to England.
Exactly who were and who are these intermarried families conencted to the Venetians?
The old-line ruling families who believe that they have the right to rule the world because they are descended from the emperors of the ancient Roman and so-called ‘holy’ Roman Empires consist of 13-15 ‘blue blood’ families, which include: Rothschild; Kuhn; Loeb; Lehman; Rockefeller; Sach; Warburg; Lazard; Seaf; Goldman; Schiff; Morgan; Schroeder; Bush and Harriman.
Other names are: the Giustiniani family, of Rome and Venice who trace their lineage to the Emperor Justianian; Sir Jocelyn Hambro of Hambros (Merchant) Bank; Pierpaolo Luzzatti Fequiz, whose lineage dates back six centuries to the most ancient Luzzatos, of Venice, and Umberto Ortolani of the ancient Black Nobility family of the same name.
Other old Venetian Black Nobility and board members of ASG and RAS are the Doria family, the financiers of the Spanish Hapsburgs, Elie de Rothschild of the French Rothschild family, Baron August von Finck (Finck, the second richest man in Germany now deceased), Franco Orsini Bonacassi of the ancient Orsini that traces its lineage to an ancient Roman senator of the same name, the Alba family whose lineage dates back to the great Duke of Alba, and Baron Pierre Lambert, a cousin of the Belgian Rothschild family.
Has anyone ever stopped to think what the Holy Roman Empire actually meant?
Back to the story
The power of the Guelphs would extend through the Italian financial centers to the north of France in Lombardy. Lombard in German means “deposit bank”, and the Lombards were bankers to the entire Medieval world. They would later transfer operations north to Hamburg, then to Amsterdam and finally to London.
The Guelphs would start the slave trade to the colonies. The Guelphs, in order to aid their control of finance and politics, would perpetuate gnostic cults which eventually developed into the Rosicrucians, Unitarians, Fabian Society and the World Council of Churches. The East India company, together with John Stuart Mill, would finance the University of London. A friend of Mill, historian George Grote, a founder of London University donated £6000 for the study of “mental health”, which began the worldwide “mental health” movement.
Banca Commerciale d’Italia, Banca Privata, Banco Ambrosiano, the Netherlands Bank, Barclays Bank, Banco del Colombia, Banco de Ibero-America. Of special interest is Banca del la Svizzeria Italiana (BSI) – since it handles flight capital investments to and from the United States – primarily in dollars and US bonds – located and isolated in “neutral” Lugano, the flight capital center for the Venetian Black Nobility. Lugano is not in Italy or in Switzerland, and is a kind of twilight zone for shady flight capital operations. George Ball, who owns a large block of stock in BSI, is a prominent “insider” and the bank’s US representative.
In the 1822 Treaty of Verona (between Austria, France, Prussia and Russia) the Jesuits agreed to smash the US Constitution and suppress the freedom of the US. Their methods included destroying free speech, destroying and suppressing the press, universal censorship, sustaining the cooperation of the Pope and clergy to use religion to help keep nations in passive obedience and financing wars against countries with representative governments.
The monarchs who signed this treaty were ultimately deposed. Most of these families are very wealthy and may be more powerful today than when they sat upon thrones. They are known collectively as the Black Nobility. Privately these families refuse to recognize any right to rule except their own. The fact that this treaty was made long ago does not mean it is void. The treaty was placed in the Congressional Record on April 25, 1916 by Senator Owen.
Italy and in particular, Venice, is very important strategically because 1. it is the closest to the middle-east and 2. it is a gateway for drugs entering Europe from Iran and Lebanon.
After the Club of Rome was established in 1968, a body which is from this black nobility, all sorts of things began in a socialist manner – the Paris uprising, the Red Brigades, the fall of various regimes and the Aldo Moro case, which investigators found had old families somehow interested in the issue for not entirely clear reasons.
The Club of Rome’s Peccei headed the Atlantic Institute’s Economic Council for three decades while he was the Chief Executive Officer for Giovanni Agnellis’ Fiat Motor Company. Agnelli, a member of an ancient Italian family, playing a leading role in development projects in the Soviet Union. The Club of Rome is an umbrella organization for Anglo-American financiers and the old families of Europe, particularly in London, Venice and Genoa.
Hence the reference in a previous post to the Queen sailing near Venice on occasions in the Britannia.
Their key role, according to the 90s article I got it from, is to create and manage economic recessions and eventual depressions. Social convulsions on a global scale, followed by depressions, are the only real way to create “welfare” recipients of the future and a series of nanny states. That’s the long term function, meanwhile cleaning up in the financial markets as they go along.
One of their members, Etienne D’Avignon, was assigned the task of collapsing the steel industry in the US and as the Treaty of Verona showed, the European families have quite an interest in the U.S.A. and vice versa – hence the congressional record entry.
More difficult to establish is Jacques Soustelle, financed by the Swiss Oltramaire family, who ran one of the assassination centres from Confederation Helvetica. Another interesting snippet, to me, was Richard Gardner marrying into the old families in Italy and providing yet more connections between Italy and the States.
This is not all about money. It’s also about culture and science and this conflict plays a huge role in the major societal movements in modern history.
All European history since the Fifteenth century within Europe and globally, has been dominated by the cultural conflict between the radiated influence of the Renaissance and the opposing, Venice-launched force of the so-called ‘Enlightenment.’
This is the power up against which we, the lowly Davids of the Albion Alliance world are trying to pit ourselves, our power base only the legitimacy of the people themselves. Next post – the assault on Science.
