“They” Are Dividing Us. But Who are “They,” anyway?

Round up the usual suspects. The image is of St. Ignatius Loyola, often credited as the founder of the Jesuits. In the good ol’ days, whenever someone talked about “They,” folks were often referring to the Jesuits.

So I’ve been talking quite a bit about the gun control vs second amendment debate. I’ll post links to all the lovely things I’ve said about it:




I am afraid after one o’clock I wore out. So I finally just posted what I had, feeling like I’d done a terrible job of covering the topic. But if you are still with me, you have seen that from a tired bloggers perspective, the polarity of Left vs Right started way back in the 30s, and has finally culminated in a society with one side saying that half our nation is evil, wicked, and hell bent on the desecration of all we hold dear. Meanwhile, the other half are saying the same about the other side…..

I mean….really….how can you hate this guy? Image from The Times of Israel.

“So well played tired blogger! Yes, you are right….this time! But everybody knows we have become a nation of bipolars….what is so special about what you say?”
I believe some of this division has been crafted by insidious artists, like a psycho-historian from the Foundation Trilogy. Perhaps some of this was random evolution, but I believe the current chaos is orchestrated by composers of destruction.

Let us compose the music of the night! We gave them our music, made our votes take wing! And now….how they’ve repaid us….denied us and betrayed us….they will filibuster….when the stock bell rings!!!!

No, I don’t really think “they” are tormented musicians hiding under the subterranean depths of that undrained swamp, D.C. Nor do I think the actual government is pulling the strings, at least, not the one set up by our Constitution. And as fun as it would be to think that Aramis is somewhere in the Vatican, or in Paris, calculating his centuries long plans to unify the world under the reign of the Last Musketeer….no, I doubt the Jesuits are the culprits.

There are three groups I would like to discuss here. Let’s do an exclusive Tired Blogger investigation into these folks:

  • The Trilateral Commission 
  • The Bilderberg
  • The World Economic Forum

Huh….something else happened in 1968….oh well, I wasn’t born yet, so it can’t really matter to me….Shall we begin…..?

I first heard of the Trilateral Commission when I was a boy. I don’t remember exactly, but I think I was somewhere between eight and twelve when Dad came home with a tape to listen to that was not music. He only did this twice in my memory, so it was kind of an event. This tape was a person going on and on about the dangers of this group. I remember very little, except he was saying the group was either the cause of or a response to WWII, and that every President since had been a member. Let’s dig in.


My first step on this quest for enlightenment is to visit their own website. I mean, after forty years maybe I should let them speak for themselves. They introduce themselves with “Championing a commitment to the rule of law, open economies and societies, and democratic principles.” But that still tells me little about who they are.

According to their site, they are ” a global membership organization that for decades has brought together senior policymakers, business leaders, and representatives of media and academe to discuss and propose solutions to some of the world’s toughest problems. Founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller, the Commission has long been an important venue to incubate ideas and form relationships across sectors and geographies.” I still feel a bit confused. I mean….I’m on the globe, but I don’t have a membership….how do I get one?

These folks know the answer to the question….if the conspiracy theorists are correct, these are the faces of the One World Government. Do you know any of these folks? Because I don’t. Did you vote for any of these people? If so, would you let me know where to turn in my ballet? I have a few ideas of who should be on this board…..

On their website they inform me that David Rockefeller founded the organization in 1973, so either the tape as profoundly wrong, or they are hiding thirty years of history.

The day after typing that sentence, I’m sitting drinking coffee in the kitchen pondering what I just wrote and it dawns on me….if the Commission was founded in 1973….how did they write a publication in 1968 called “Crisis in Democracy.” Is this a group of time travelers? And holy crap, why hasn’t Dan Ackroyd talked about this?

I say this because the AZ Quote of Noam Chomsky that ya’ll read above was in reference to a Trilateral Commission publication in 1968….what’s that? My well paid assistance are saying that I’m misreading the quote, that the book wasn’t published then, it was published in part as a reaction to the 1968 Democratic Convention.

Then why did someone believe in the late seventies and early eighties that the Trilateral Commission, that couldn’t have been around much over a decade, had been around since the forties?

Here are some of the “usual suspects.” The roster seems to change a bit from decade to decade, but there usually is a Rockefeller, some Bushes, and a bunch of Rothschilds claimed to be be in on the scheme to unite the world in a diabolic dictatorship, reminiscent of Marvel Comic’s Hydra. Well….Hail Hydra!

I did some digging on the wikipedia page for David Rockefeller, the touted founder of the Commission. According to it, he formed the Commission because of his displeasure with the Bilderberg group to include Japan. Is this the key to the misinformation I was fed as a child?

Bilderberg meetings were begun in 1954. According to their website (all these conspiracy folks have websites!), the meetings have “been a forum for informal discussions to foster dialogue between Europe and North America. Every year, approx. 130 political leaders and experts from industry, finance, labour, academia and the media are invited to take part in the Meeting. About two thirds of the participants come from Europe and the rest from North America; one third from politics and government and the rest from other fields. The Meeting is a forum for informal discussions about major issues.”

I don’t know if I feel better or worse looking at this photo. I see only two faces I know….Henry Kissinger, And David Petraeus, the disgraced hero of the second Gulf War and former director of the CIA; the rest of these faces I don’t know. I see Goldman Sachs is pretty well represented. I only see two heads of state, Anders Rasmussen, the NATO Sec General is “sort of” a national leader, and Queen Beatrix (alas, not Potter) of the Netherlands. Otherwise I see CEOs, NSA directors, senior advisors to CEOs, the IMF director (International Monetary Fund), and the head of MI6 (that’s right….James Bonds boss…..don’t fuck with these folks or they’ll bring back Sean Connery and put a shank in your ass. Once again….how many of these people do you know? Were you allowed to vote for them? Should they be making major policy decisions for the world?

So, if I am understanding this correctly, David Rockefeller was at one time a member of this ultimate country club, but left and started his own agency of chaos when the Bilderberg folks decided they didn’t want to play nice nice to Japan. I’m curious to see if this explains the discrepancy between the reports that the Trilateral Commission was around at WWII, and the official story that they were founded in the seventies.


The Bilderberg are “annual meetings attended by 120 to 150 political leaders, government officials, and experts from industry, finance, media, and academia in Europe and North America. The meetings, held in a different European or North American country each year, provide a private, informal environment in which those who influence national policies and international affairs in the West can get to know each other and discuss without commitment their common problems. After each conference a private report of the meeting is circulated only to past and present participants” this quoted from the Encyclopedia Britannica. “The meetings were initiated by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands and took their name from the hotel at Oosterbeek, Netherlands, where the first conference was held in 1954.” Damned Dutch…..any way they can to save a buck….

A little known Dutch girl at her homework. Possibly writing in her journal, private thoughts that will never be read. Her name? Anne Frank. Yeah, she was persecuted for her Jewish ethnicity. But her citizenship was Dutch.

Just as the Trilateral Commission has their own website that makes everything so plain (not!), the Bilderberg meetings also have their own website.


I need to start my own website. How does http://www.htps\\bitemebitemebiteme.zip sound?

From the site: “The annual Bilderberg Meeting is designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America. Bilderberg was established in 1954 as a forum for informal discussions, bringing together individuals who share an active interest in affairs relevant to the relationship between Europe and Northern America. The Meeting has one main goal: to foster discussion and dialogue. There is no desired outcome, there is no closing statement, there are no resolutions proposed or votes taken, and the organisation does not support any political party or viewpoint.”

Ok. Sounds harmless enough. So then….why all the sinister mystery surrounding them? I think part of it may be their extreme exclusivity. Membership is via invitation only, according to their website. Don’t call us, we’ll call you. According to the website they have never sought publicity (which is neither really good or bad). “Chatham house rules” are imposed on the meetings….ok….what does that mean?


Distinctly different from Robert’s Rules of Order, the Chatham House Rules were devised in 1927 (which would very roughly correspond with the rather inexact discussion I heard on the tape about the Trilateral Commission).

Q. What are the benefits of using the Rule?
A. It allows people to speak as individuals, and to express views that may not be those of their organizations, and therefore it encourages free discussion. People usually feel more relaxed if they don’t have to worry about their reputation or the implications if they are publicly quoted.”

Q. Can a list of participants at the meeting be published?
A. No – the list of participants should not be circulated beyond those participating in the meeting.”

I think this alone may explain a lot of the suspicion. We don’t get to know who these people are, and we don’t get to know what they have said. Even if there are no transactions going on, just the fact that powerful people are basically hiding what is going on creeps most of us out.

It takes only a few seconds to find a moderately reputable article vehemently criticizing the Bilderberg folks.


According to thefactual.com, The Guardian, while it is styled as a tabloid, actually scores as higher than average:

“Over a dataset of 1,000 articles, The Guardian scored an average Factual Grade of 64.8%. This is slightly above the average of 61.9% for all 240 news sources that we analyzed. This places the newspaper in the 60th percentile of our dataset. 

“These moderate scores are attributable to “The Guardian’s minimal sensationalism and consistently neutral tone — qualities uncommon to its tabloid format.”

Now that I’ve established I’m not quoting Alex Jones, here is the quote:

“But my favourite joke by far from this year’s agenda is this item: “The war on information”. Bilderberg is concerned about fake news? The world’s most secretive conference, which is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars keeping the press away from its sacred discussions, which has spent decades lying and obfuscating about itself, wants to ensure the spread of truth?

“So when Bilderberg talks about the “The war on information” , you have to wonder what side they’re fighting on. Not here in Chantilly, but many times before I’ve been detained by armed police for trying to report on this conference. I’ve been bundled into police cars and yelled at to hand over my camera. I’ve been escorted out of my bedroom at 1am and made to stand under a police spotlight on an Austrian mountainside. I’ve actually wrestled with a policeman in an Athens metro station. And they want to talk about a war on information?

“If Bilderberg wants an answer to “Why is populism growing?” – another question on the agenda – they might take a look in the mirror. It’s almost as if people aren’t all that comfortable with unaccountable technocratic elites and billionaire globalists lobbying their ministers and party leaders behind closed doors.”

One of these people is part of the Bilderberg group. Care to take a guess? Answer will be given at the end of the post. Saying I’m not assassinated before I can finish it….image from New York Post.

I can’t go back in time and dig up that tape, but I think this may be the clue. The Bilderberg group has been doing things in the shadows, and us small folk below, busy building our ant dens, have not been able to pay much attention. The dude on the tape likely just lumped the Trilateral Commission in with the Bilderberg. Honestly, since they seem so similar, I think the mistake forgivable. But still an error.

Images of folks reported to be on the Bilderberg in 2014. No idea who any of these folks are. And not to beat a dead horse but….I never voted for any of these people. Image from Turkishnews.com, so take it for what it’s worth. Why is it Istanbul, not Constantinople?

I’m going to move on to the last organization I want to discuss. Honestly, you can ridicule me all you want about my fears about the other two groups. But I hope you really pay attention to this one. The last, and I am beginning to think possibly the most dangerous organization is the World Economic Forum.

I’ve already done a small post about these folks, I’ll link it here:


I wonder which of these fellows most needed a shower after this meeting. Klaus Schwab, founder and chairman of the World Economic Forum, shaking hands with Vladimir Putin.

I pulled my punches in that post, I was trying to allow my readers to make up their own minds. Maybe I should do the same thing here, but I made the link between them and two other organizations branded evil, so I suppose now I should make my case.

No group of people can ever be branded as perfectly evil, so please understand, I don’t doubt some good has come from this forum. In the interests of fairness, let’s take a look at their own website:


Drew Carry and Melinda Gate’s ex husband….I feel better already! Meanwhile Tina Fey looks on. I may have some of that information wrong. Image from WEF website.

Paradoxically, while the WEF is more open (by leaps and bounds) than the other two organizations, I am puzzled. When I specifically look up them up, all I get on the negative side on the first page is Russel Brand discussing his fears about them. All the rest of the page is full of glowing praise of WEF programs. And…..all this praise comes from WEF articles themselves. Maybe not logical, but I smell a rat. Even when I deliberately google “the world economic forum is evil” the first four suggestions are WEF articles. Surely…..google isn’t in cahoots with these guys?


Well looky there! They are a “partner.” I wonder who else is a “partner?”


In case you were wondering, here is a list. Take a glance. It’s pretty big. Granted, in a list this long statistically speaking you will have some bad eggs. Still….I feel a bit nauseous seeing The Bank of China, China Construction Bank, China Energy Investment, GE, Apple, Goldman Sachs, Nestle, PB, Walmart, Microsoft, China Bohai Bank, Johnson & Johnson, JP Morgan Chase Bank, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola HBC, Dow Chemical, Dow Jones & Company, Bayer, Visa, Pfizer, Lockheed Martin.

On the positive, they did give Sadhguru a forum, and some of the articles do look like good work is being done. But….yeah….I honestly do want a Great Reset….but not one run by the organizations I’ve just listed.

And the Bilderberg member from the above photo? No, not Biden. Linsey Graham.

    In the book *Killers of the Flower Moon* about the murders of numerous Osage Natives for their wealth from oil & mineral rights, (minor spoiler that does not change the POWER of this book’s message)….

    ….the fledgling FBI discovers that there was no grand conspiracy, no secret network, no cabal. It was merely two-handfuls or so local people succumbing to the greed of human nature — each acting on their own because of internal selfishness and evil — not some new world machination.

    George Orwell from *1984* has it right when the “Goldstein Book” discusses that society is made up of three distinct social classes: the elite Inner Party, the industrious Outer Party, and vast numbers of uneducated proles. Winston Smith learns that the history of humankind has been a cyclical struggle between these competing social group.
    The Middle group wants to become High, which they can only do with help from the Low Group, but, of course, after the Medium gains power and becomes the new High group, they break their promises — or says “hang on. wait. Just let things settle” and they thrust the Low back into servitude. Eventually a new Middle group splits off and the cycle begins again.

    However, in our modern world, I don’t think the elites have some secret cabal — now surely a few of them understand how important it is not to let the Medium and Low truly unite — but they understand that if they just throw a few breadcrumbs to the Upper Middle, that they can keep us all in check.

    “”The masses never revolt of their own accord, and they never revolt merely because they are oppressed. Indeed, so long as they are not permitted to have standards of comparison, they never even become aware that they are oppressed.”
    1984. Part 2, Chapter 9
