THE ROUND TABLE
by David Icke
One of the first parts of the Illuminati network that new researchers discover is the group of organisations
which connect into the British-based secret society called The Round Table.
These include the Bilderberg Group, the
Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the Club of Rome.
This network is not the most powerful expression of the Illuminati. There are many more elite groups within it's web, but
these "Round Table" organisations are a key part of its day to day manipulation of politics, banking, business, the military
(especially NATO), "education", and so on.
You can read about all this in great detail in my books, And The Truth
Shall Set You Free and The Biggest Secret. But briefly, the network was created to advance through the 20th century and beyond
the Illuminati agenda for the centralised control of Planet Earth.
The Round Table was created in London (the Illuminati's operational centre) in the latter years of the 19th century. Its first
official "leader" was Cecil Rhodes, the man who mercilessly manipulated Southern Africa and took those lands from the black
peoples. Although, in theory, black people are back in political control of Africa, the real decisions are still made by the
European and American elites via their black puppet presidents and leaders. "Independence" is an illusion.
tribe against tribe until they destroyed each other in war, so allowing Rhodes and the British to take over. The same is happening
today in the continuing wars in Africa, details of which you will find on this site. Rhodes said the goal of the Round Table
was to create World Government controlled by Britain (the Illuminati based in Britain).
When he died in 1902, he left money in his will to fund "Rhodes Scholarships" in which overseas students had their expenses
paid to study at Oxford University - the centre of the Illuminati's manipulation of "education". The ratio of these "Rhodes
Scholars" who go back to their countries to enter positions of political, economic, and media power is enormous compared with
the general student population. They act as Illuminati agents. The most famous Rhodes Scholar in the world today is Bill Clinton,
the two-times President of the United States. But while Rhodes was the official front man for the Round Table, the real controllers
and funders were, and are, the House of Rothschild, the banking dynasty which is at the heart of so much of the global conspiracy.
This is not an anti-Jewish remark because the Rothschilds claim to be Jewish. The Rothschilds have manipulated Jewish people
more than any other!! See Was a Hitler a Rothschild on this site.
The inner elite of this Round Table in the US and UK were the key members of their government's war
administrations before and during the First World War.. As is provable with documentation, they worked together to engineer
the circumstances that led to that global conflict. Through their technique of create-the-problem-then-offer-the-solution,
they wanted to destroy the global status quo with that war and therefore have the opportunity to re-draw the world in their
agenda's image when the conflict was over. This is precisely what they did.
Power in the world was in far fewer hands
after the war than before, and this was advanced even further when they engineered the Second World War also. This has continued
to this day and, indeed, is getting quicker all the time.
In 1919, came the Versailles Peace Conference near Paris when the elite of the Round Table from Britain and the United States,
people like Alfred Milner, Edward Mandel House, and Bernard Baruch, were appointed to represent their countries at the meetings
which decided how the world would be changed as a result of the war these same people had created. They decided to impose
impossible reparations payments on Germany, so ensuring the collapse of the post-war Weimar Republic amid unbelievable ecomonic
collapse and thus create the very circumstances that brought Hitler (a Rothschild, see related article) to power. It was while
in Paris that these Illuminati, Round Table, members met at the Hotel Majestic to begin the process of creating the Bilderberg-CFR-RIIA-Trilateral
Commission network. They also decided at Versailles that they now all supported the creation of a Jewish homeland in Palestine.
As I show in my books, EVERY ONE of them was either a Rothschild bloodline or was controlled by them.
The American President, Woodrow Wilson, was "advised" at Versailles by Colonel House and Bernard Baruch, both Rothschild clones
and leaders of the Round Table in the United States; The British Prime Minister, Lloyd George, was "advised" by Alfred Milner,
Rothschild employee and Round Table leader, and Sir Phillip Sassoon, a direct decendent of Mayer Amschel Rothschild, the founder
of the dynasty; The French leader, Georges Clemenceau, was "advised" by his Minister for the Interior, Georges Mandel, whose
real name was Jeroboam Rothschild.
Who do you think was making the decisions here??
As a result of their secret meetings at the Hotel Majestic, The Royal Institute of International Affairs was founded in London
in 1920, the Council on Foreign Relations followed in 1921, and then came the Bilderberg Group (1954), the Club of Rome (1968)
and the Trilateral Commission (1973). These are dominated by the Rothschilds and Rockefellers, and major manipulators
like Henry Kissinger, who, in turn, answer to higher powers in the Illuminati.
These organisations have among their
number the top people in global politics, business, banking, military, media, "education" and so forth. These are the channels
through which the same global policies are co-ordinated outside of public knowledge through apparently unconnected countries,
political parties, and institutions. The upper levels of secret societies like the Freemasons, Knights of Malta, etc., connect
into this Round Table web also.
The Trilateral Commission:
"...a vehicle for multinational consolidation of commercial
and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States."
From Compton's OnLine Encyclopedia
House, Edward Mandell (1858-1938),
political leader, born in Houston, Tex.; confidential foreign agent of President Wilson; member American Peace Commission
Milner, Alfred, Viscount (1854-1925),
British statesman and colonial administrator; won
international fame as high commissioner for South Africa 1897-1905, period that laid foundations of British rule there; an
Imperialist and Conservative, he opposed famous Lloyd George budget of 1909, but joined coalition cabinet 1916 and except
for Lloyd George took largest share in civilian war activities; secretary of state for colonies 1919.
Although he never ran for public office, Bernard Baruch was an adviser to American presidents on economic matters for
more than 40 years. As a young man he had shown a remarkable ability to make money by investment.
Bernard Mannes Baruch
was born on Aug. 19, 1870, at Camden, S.C. His family moved to New York City in 1881, and he attended City College there,
graduating at the age of 19. In 1890 Baruch took a job as an office boy in a small New York City brokerage house. By 1897
he owned a one-eighth interest in the firm. He married Annie Griffin; they had three children.
Baruch bought a seat
on the New York Stock Exchange and within a few years became a millionaire. By 1903 he had his own firm. His refusal to join
any other financial house gave him the reputation as the "lone wolf of Wall Street."
Baruch supported Woodrow Wilson
in the presidential campaign of 1912. In 1916 Wilson appointed him to the advisory commission of the Council of National Defense.
In 1918 he became chairman of the War Industries Board.
Cecil Rhodes (1853-1902)
South Africa has long attracted men seeking wealth and power. In the 1880s and 1890s Cecil Rhodes found both. He made
a fortune in diamonds and gold. As prime minister of Britain's colony at the Cape of Good Hope he was virtual dictator of
all South Africa. Rhodes's ambition was not for himself but for his native Britain. He brought Northern and Southern Rhodesia
(now Zambia and Zimbabwe) into the British Empire (see Zambia ; Zimbabwe ).
Cecil John Rhodes was born on July 5,
1853, in Bishop's Stortford, England. When he was 17, tuberculosis kept him from entering Oxford University. He went to South
Africa and took part in the rush to the newly discovered Kimberley diamond fields. Within a few months he had made a fortune.
The active life restored his health, and he continued his education. For eight years he alternated between study at Oxford
and work in South Africa. In 1881, just before taking his degree, he was elected to the parliament of Cape Colony. In 1890
he became its prime minister.
Rhodes also controlled the huge companies that owned most of the gold and diamond fields.
In 1893 he defeated the Matabele tribe and their king, Lobengula. Meanwhile he schemed against his political opponent Paul
Kruger, leader of the Dutch settlers--the Boers--and president of the Transvaal Republic. In 1895 Leander Jameson, Rhodes's
friend, raided the Transvaal, hoping to overthrow the Boer government. The raid failed. Rhodes was implicated and forced to
resign as prime minister and as director of the British South Africa Company.
Rhodes moved to Matabeleland, planning
to develop its natural resources. Soon he had the chance to show his statesmanship. The tribal people who lived in the area
had revolted and could not be suppressed. Rhodes talked with the chiefs, heard their grievances, and promised relief. The
rebellion ended. In 1898 Rhodes was again elected to the Cape Colony parliament. He had begun to regain his old power when
the Boer War (1899-1902) began. He took part in the defense of Kimberley, but his health broke and he died on March 26, 1902,
Rhodes's dream of a South African Union came true in 1910. He left his Cape Town residence, Groote
Schuur, to be the home of future prime ministers of the Union, now a republic. The University of Cape Town is also situated
on his Groote Schuur estate.
The Rhodes Scholarships
Rhodes left most of his fortune to establish
scholarships to Oxford University. Approximately 70 scholarships are awarded each year. They last for two years. The original
grant for a scholarship-- 300 pounds--has been raised to more than 2,600 pounds a year.
Rhodes scholars are selected
from the Commonwealth, Germany, and the United States. Until 1976 only men were eligible. In the United States 32 scholarships
are offered each year. Four go to each of eight districts. Candidates must be 18 to 24 years old and must have a degree from
a recognized college or university. Each school appoints up to five candidates. From these the state committees of selection
nominate two candidates each. Awards are based on leadership, scholastic attainment, success in outdoor sports, and interviews.
Scholarship winners may select any course of study at Oxford that they are qualified to pursue. In some cases the scholarship
may be extended to cover a third year in postgraduate study.
For most of the
19th century, the House of Rothschild, a Jewish family of bankers, ruled the money markets of Europe. Many European nations
borrowed money from them to pay debts, to wage wars, or to finance peacetime projects. The family name was derived from the
red shield (rothen Schilde in German) used by an ancestor as a sign for his shop.
Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812)
laid the foundation of the family fortune. He was born in the Jewish quarter of Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany. He became a tradesman
and provided some banking services, such as exchanging currencies. An expert in rare coins, Mayer Amschel gained admittance
to many wealthy homes, notably that of the elector William of Hesse-Kassel. Soon he was entrusted with some of the elector's
major financial affairs. Mayer Amschel raised his five sons to work in the family business.
The Rothschilds owed their
rise as international bankers largely to the Napoleonic Wars. Mayer Amschel's third son, Nathan Mayer (1777-1836), went to
England in about 1800 and ran goods for the British through Napoleon's blockade. With his brothers' help, Nathan Mayer also
transported gold through France to finance the British army in Spain. This action earned Nathan a post as agent of the British
treasury. At the war's end the House of Rothschild was commissioned to handle loans to France and Austria.
s brother Jacob, or James (1792-1868), established a bank in Paris, France, and his brother Salomon Mayer (1774-1855) set
up a bank in Vienna, Austria. A bank in Naples, Italy, founded later by another brother, Karl Mayer (1788-1855), failed to
thrive and was closed in about 1861. The oldest brother, Amschel Mayer (1773-1855), remained in charge of the financial business
The House of Rothschild financed railroads in Europe and America and provided loans to the United States.
Nathan Mayer' s son Lionel Nathan (1808-79) in 1875 loaned Britain the money used by Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli to buy
control of the Suez Canal. Lionel Nathan was the first Jew to be elected to the British Parliament, and his son Nathan Mayer
(1840-1915) became the first Baron Rothschild.
The Rothschilds have received many honors. Members of the British and
French families--the only ones still engaged in banking after the Nazis seized the Austrian house--have distinguished themselves
as scientists and philanthropists.
LLOYD GEORGE, David (1863 -1945)
At the age of 17, a small slender Welshman visited the British House of Commons. Afterward he recorded in his diary his
hope for a political career. The Welshman, David Lloyd George, in time became the prime minister who guided Great Britain
to victory over Germany in World War I.
David George was born on Jan. 17, 1863, in Manchester, England, where his
Welsh father, William George, had gone to teach school. His father died in June 1864. Soon after, the family returned to Wales.
David was educated by his uncle, Richard Lloyd, the village cobbler. In his honor the boy took the name Lloyd. At the age
of 14 he began to study law and at 21 was admitted to practice as a solicitor. In 1890 he was elected to Parliament as a Liberal
from the Welsh borough of Caernarvon. "The great little Welshman" held his seat in the Commons for 55 years.
In 1917, near the end of World War I, Georges Clemenceau accepted the post of premier of France. His country seemed on
the verge of losing the war; but the premier, a man of 77, guided his people to victory. After the war he presided at the
Clemenceau founded a daily paper, L'Aurore, to aid the cause of Captain Alfred Dreyfus, convicted
of selling French military secrets to Germany. Émile Zola's famous article in defense of Dreyfus, `J'Accuse' (I Accuse), was
published in this paper in 1898. In 1913 Clemenceau founded L'Homme libre, meaning The Free Man, in which he warned of the
danger of war with Germany. The paper was briefly suppressed in 1914 but reappeared as L'Homme enchaîné, (The Man in Chains).
1919, while presiding at the peace conference, Clemenceau was wounded by an anarchist. In 1922 he toured the United States
to urge cooperation with Europe. He continued to write until his death in Paris on Nov. 24, 1929.
