    • Analysis of the permanent government A list of 470 private groups worldwide and the most dominant players in them "The friendship Nancy and I shared with Kay Graham is one of the legacies of my government service that we cherish most. ... The Kay of the permanent establishment never lost sight of the fact that societies thrive not by the victories of their factions but by their ultimate reconciliations. Kay and I met in 1969 at the home of Joe Alsop, another member of Washington's permanent establishment." - July 23, 2001, Henry Kissinger, Eulogy for Katharine Graham of the Washington Post, located at www.henryakissinger.com. It's not used often, but there's nothing particularly usual about the term "permanent establishment" (or "permanent government"). Note: The names on this page have been gathered from books, newspapers, official websites (including webarchive), regular websites (non-conspiracy for 99 percent), a number of membership lists and the Who's Who. ISGP's membership/biography lists related to the Pilgrims, the 1001, Le Cercle and other groups were used as a starting point to find all these private groups. Many sources can be found in those lists, but certainly all - and unfortunately there's no time to include all the sources here. This page has primarily been put together to make cross referencing a hundred times easier than before. Contents Introduction Influence index permanent government Liberal (U.S. domestic) Liberal (U.K. domestic) Liberal (Dutch domestic) Liberal (Anglo-American relations) Liberal (U.S.-German) Liberal (Russian relations) Liberal (Europe) Liberal (Institutes of international affairs) Liberal (U.K. clubs) Liberal (U.S. clubs) Liberal (fraternities) Liberal establishment (worldwide - economics and national security) Liberal-conservative (military clubs/groups and pure CIA/government) Conservative (rising "military-industrial complex") Conservative (lower level) Conservative (U.S. - intelligence) Conservative (mainly UK - intelligence) Conservative (Vatican-Paneuropa network - intelligence) Zionist establishment (set up by Zionist Jews, not American neocons)
    • Extra: anti-Vatican (esoteric) masonic, deist and (esoteric) scientific groups Extra: humanist groups Extra: secret societies Japan The "black network", the "octopus" and the "nebula" Existence uncertain Extra: reported coups (how we keep on top of the world) Introduction People studying international politics should have a good idea of the non-government organizations listed on this page. They vary considerable in purpose and influence, but are an integral part of the globalization process, as well as intelligence and covert operations. For an explanation of the terms Liberal, Conservative and Zionist Establishment, in which these groups are largely divided, the reader can visit the introduction page. The names of these groups/NGOs have been collected by the author of this site over the course of eight to nine years. Some of the less interesting institutes, like the Pugwash Conferences or Williamsburg Meetings, have been kept out. What keeps this entire network afloat are funds from corporations, related foundations, membership fees, fund raisers and occasional government grants is. Ban the foundations, curb corporate contributions, and the whole network will start to fall apart. Interestingly, back in early 2004 this author was unable to find more than six or seven of the more important organizations below on one website or in one book, even after looking for it all over the place. Often groups like the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission were mixed in with the "Illuminati", the "Freemasons" and the "New World Order". Tiny bits of information on such groups as the Pilgrims Society, Le Cercle, the 1001 Club, the JASON Group, the Sun Valley Meetings and others were scattered all over the place and often not freely accessible. Information on mainland Europe with regard to these kind of groups was especially scarce. And in all cases no one had a clue how various groups related to each other. As the reader can see, things have changed. Influence index permanent government Below the reader can find names of prominent individuals ranked according to the number of private groups that they have (certainly) been involved with. This does not necessarily accurately cover a person like Ted Shackley and other CIA personnel, but overall this is a really great index to - once and for all - identify all the key players in the liberal (globalist) and conservative (defense) establishments.
    • You can check the rankings for yourself by doing searches on this page for particular (sur)names. Ideally sources would be available with all the groups and names listed, but that just takes too much time at this point. Many names should be easy to verify on the internet or other parts of this site. The following colors have been used to give an indication of the person's professional background(s). GREEN: Career in banking, other corporations or in economic posts. YELLOW: Congress, senate, lower level government position, or (vice) president. RED Military career, defense secretary, CIA, national security advisor or national security scholar. BLUE: State Department. 1. Henry Kissinger 51 2. James/Suzanne Woolsey 34 3.

This hugely powerful conglomerate was involved in drug running, arms trafficking, gold smuggling, assassinations and bribing government officials. From other sources it became clear that black network operatives were working with the CIA and Mossad, indicating these two elements really controlled the network. See the La Nebuleuse article for some details. July 29, 1991, Time Magazine, 'The Dirtiest Bank of All': "B.C.C.I. is more than just a criminal bank. From interviews with sources close to B.C.C.I., TIME has pieced together a portrait of a clandestine division of the bank called the "black network," which functions as a global intelligence operation and a Mafia-like enforcement squad. Operating primarily out of the bank's offices in Karachi, Pakistan, the 1,500-employee black network has used sophisticated spy equipment and
    • techniques, along with bribery, extortion, kidnapping and even, by some accounts, murder. The black network -- so named by its own members -- stops at almost nothing to further the bank's aims the world over." "The more conventional departments of B.C.C.I. handled such services as laundering money for the drug trade and helping dictators loot their national treasuries. The black network, which is still functioning, operates a lucrative arms-trade business and transports drugs and gold. According to investigators and participants in those operations, it often works with Western and Middle Eastern intelligence agencies. The strange and still murky ties between B.C.C.I. and the intelligence agencies of several countries are so pervasive that even the White House has become entangled. As TIME reported earlier this month, the National Security Council used B.C.C.I. to funnel money for the Iran-contra deals, and the CIA maintained accounts in B.C.C.I. for covert operations. Moreover, investigators have told TIME that the Defense Intelligence Agency has maintained a slush-fund account with B.C.C.I., apparently to pay for clandestine activities..." "U.S. agents collaborated with the black network in several operations, according to a B.C.C.I. black-network "officer" who is now a secret U.S. government witness. Sources have told investigators that B.C.C.I. worked closely with Israel's spy agencies and other Western intelligence groups as well, especially in arms deals. The bank also maintained cozy relationships with international terrorists, say investigators who discovered suspected terrorist accounts for Libya, Syria and the Palestine Liberation Organization in B.C.C.I.'s London offices..." "The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 and the resulting strategic importance of neighboring Pakistan accelerated the growth of B.C.C.I.'s geopolitical power and its unbridled use of the black network..." "The bank was in a unique position to operate an intelligence- gathering unit because it dealt with such figures as Noriega, Saddam, Marcos, Peruvian President Alan Garcia, Daniel Ortega, contra leader Adolfo Calero and arms dealers like Adnan Khashoggi. Its original purpose was to pay bribes, intimidate authorities and quash investigations. But according to a former operative, sometime in the early 1980s the black network began running its own drugs, weapons and currency
    • deals." "I was recruited by the black network in the early 1980s," says an Arab- born employee who has ties to a ruling family in the Middle East and has told U.S. authorities of his role in running one of the black units. "They came to me while I was in school in the U.S.; they spoke my language, knew all of my friends and gave me money. They told me they wanted me to join the organization, and described its wealth and political power, but at first they never said exactly what the organization did." "This operative -- call him Mustafa -- underwent a year of training that began with education in psychology and the principles of leadership and proceeded into spycraft, with lessons in electronic surveillance, breaking and entering, and interrogation techniques. "Then the nature of our advisers changed," says Mustafa. "The pleasantness was gone, and we moved to Pakistan, where we trained with firearms." Mustafa's first operational assignment took him to London. "They gave us passports and identification, and we moved a shipment of ((unidentified)) goods. In England they had more I.D. waiting for us, because customs and immigration are strict, but when we moved many places, into India or China or Latin America, matters were taken care of, and we just slipped through borders. We would be met. It was always all arranged."" "A typical operation took place in April 1989, when a container ship from Colombia docked during the night at Karachi, Pakistan. Black-unit operatives met the ship after paying $100,000 in bribes to Pakistani customs officials. The band unloaded large wooden crates from several containers. "They were so heavy we had to use a crane rather than a forklift," says a participant. The crates were trucked to a "secure airport" and loaded aboard an unmarked 707 jet, where an American, believed by the black-unit members to be a CIA agent, supervised the frantic activity..." "The black network was the bank's deepest secret, but rumors of its activities filtered through the bank's managerial level with chilling effectiveness. Senior bankers voice fears that they will be financially ruined or physically maimed -- even killed -- if they are found talking about B.C.C.I.'s activities... Businessmen who pursued shady deals with B.C.C.I. are just as frightened. 'Look,' says an arms dealer, 'these people work hand in hand with the drug cartels; they can have anybody killed.'... Currently the black units have focused their scrutiny
    • and intimidation on investigators. 'Our own people have been staked out or followed, and we suspect tapped telephones,' says a New York law-enforcement officer." "The Octopus" Term that was created by the murdered journalist Danny Casolaro to describe the global, criminal, CIA-ran conglomerate he was investigating. Although it isn't known if this term was also used by people involved in this network, his work was very unique and he was clearly digging very deep -- too deep, it appears. Before he was killed (as have many, many others), Casolaro had already received numerous warnings and death threats, but apparently he couldn't back off. As for me, I agree with Casolaro's take on the subject. Parts of his investigation are discussed in the 1996 book The Last Circle of Cheri Seymour. Kenn Thomass and Jim Keith also discussed Casolaro's work in their 1996 book The Octopus: Secret government and the death of Danny Casolaro, pp. 69, 73 (revised edition of 2004): "Although Danny Casolaro does not state it explicitly in his notes, he apparently conceived the Octopus starting as an anti- Communist response to Philby's betrayel [found out about in 1963]; a conclave of OSS/CIA veterans, dispersing and coalescing in what Casolaro called "tag team compartments" and reaping huge profits through assassinations, arms sales, the control of governments, international drug trafficking, and the promotion of international fascism... "Danny Casolaro believed the Octopus responsible for criminal conspiracies which, linked, formed a virtual history of intelligence double dealing from 1950 to the present. These events, in Casolaro's view, included the ousters of US President Richard Nixon, Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam, the Shah of Iran, and the murders of Chilean President Allende, and, of course, of President John F. Kennedy. Casolaro saw the Octopus' tentacles entwined throughout the creation of the Golden Triangle and Latin America drug trade, the Cuban Bay of Pigs debacle, the October Surprise, the BCCI banking scandal, and, almost as an afterthought, the theft of the PROMIS software. Casolaro found a "Secret Team," a high cabal of players operating a clandestine, parallel government, identified previously by other writers. The cabal had operated beyond the control or scrutiny of the elected government, financed by drug- running from Southeast Asia and the Americas... Casolaro believed the crimes could best be identified by linking them to a small
    • network of named individuals that made up his Octopus. He outlined their hierarchy and provided specific detail about their behind-the-scenes role in contemporary political history. "Casolaro named people both familiar and unfamiliar to other researchers. He deemed the "first level" operatives to be Richard Helms, George Pender, John Philip Nichols, and Ray Cline [ASC; close to Cercle group]. The second level included Robert Chasen, E. Howard Hunt, Edwin Wilson, Thomas Clines, and Ted Shackley [Shackley was influential in Le Cercle; Shackley was definitely the leader of what Casolaro terms "second level"]. Working backward from the PROMIS theft, Casolaro saw them in a new relationship, a nearly organic entity that impacted on both past and then current events..." The Octopus', p. 71, interview with investigative reporter Virginia McCullough: "Danny would say that he couldn't believe the government would do drugs for arms. He was God, motherhood, and apple pie. I would say, 'Look Danny, let's get real, we're living in the 20th century.'" "The nebula" Spoken about in the 1994 ATLAS dossier on this website. It involves a network of Mossad agents and Russian mafia, but also CIA, politicians and bankers. Elements are very recognizable compared to the previous two terms: "black network" and "nebula". Intro of the the relevant ATLAS dossier document: "To comprehend this nebula, it is necessary to abandon traditional financial or political logic; this is not merely a question of nation, political party, or of ordinary economics... Our conclusion would be that at least over the last twenty years, the economic powers, some of which mafia types, have allied themselves with political forces and organized criminal structures, and reached the 4th stage of money laundering, namely, Absolute Power. It has been specified to us that at the present moment these characters control 50% of the world economy." Existence uncertain Committee of 26 This group is mentioned in Simon Regan's book 'Who killed Diana?'. The author was informed about this group through his intelligence contacts, including the one who advised him to look into Le Cercle. I quote from his book:
    • "My own security contacts, including the Baroness, had also told me about a highly mysterious organization called the Committee of 26, which is apparently based in Bristol, in England’s West Country. I have never heard of this and can find no other official reference in any file. But it is apparently a super-secret "liaison desk" between the highest echelons of British and American agencies and has the "co-operation" of the French. I was told it was "Old Guard" and worked unilaterally. That is, it was a kind of uncontrolled "super-agency" which answered to no one. I cannot show that this agency even exists... I trust the Baroness, but she was unable to give me any feasible further "chapter and verse." This could well be disinformation, as this is certainly the case with John Coleman's Committee of 300 ("the Olympians"). I read Coleman's book years back, looking for evidence of the committee's existence, but couldn't find it. Virtually all of the information could be found in the work of EIR and Eustace Mullins (both also propagandists, but who never used the Committee of 300 term), and most of the names he mentions have at least once visited Bilderberg. Especially since Coleman gathered so many names of this alleged Committee of 300, you'd guess he could at least point you in the right direction for proof of its existence. But he has never done that. Coleman, a former MI6 agent, is typical of conservative establishment propagandists à la Brian Crozier and others, in the sense that he links liberalism, socialism and communism all on one heap and the West has been a victim of this joint "plot". This alone is a dead giveaway that he's spreading disinformation. Maybe it's different with the Committee on 26, but don't get your hopes up. Group 13 Said to be an assassination team from Britain. You can find some information about it here. The supposed head of Group 13 turned out to be someone whose background could not be fully traced, not even by the British Parliament. This person and his allies had also infiltrated the boards of arms companies. Apparently, when these companies aren't useful anymore, they are run into the ground. This group, which appears to have close ties to the Pinay Cercle leadership, will be slightly more expanded on in the future.
    • Company 14 Another assassination team from England. The well- respected and well-connected author Gordon Thomas spoke about this group in March 2010. Supposedly this group is hunting down IRA members who killed two British soldiers and a policeman in Northern Ireland. Knight's Templar (CIA) In his 1977 book The Night Watch, former CIA officer David Atlee Phillips wrote on page 123 (according to Lobster): "...that small circle of well-bred, highly educated adventurers who were known to some in the CIA as the 'Knights Templars' - Allen Dulles, Frank Wisner, Kermit Roosevelt, Tracey Barnes, Dick Bissell, and kindred spirits. Other CIA veterans have confirmed the existence of similar associations within the agency, with names like the "Century group" and the "Gold Key group". Synarchist Movement of Empire The Synarchist and Martinist order existed, but nothing is really known about it and it may well have been very insignificant in terms of influence. But some have claimed that the philopsophies of Synarchism played a role in the French version of an underground fascist, pre-World War II movement. 1969, William L. Shirer, 'The Collapse of the Third Republic', p. 218-219: "Later Coutrot would be generally credited with being the man behind a technocratic movement called Synarchie, which to this day, despite many studies of it, remains - at least to this writer, who has pondered most of them - somewhat of a mystery... That some Synarchists organized as far back as 1922 a secret society with revolutionary aims has been established. It was called "Le Mouvement Synarchique d'Empire," or MSE, and its secret "Pact," containing "Thirteen Fundamental Points and 598 Propositions" for the Synarchist revolution, was discovered by the Vichy police in 1941 and published after the war... so far as one can make out from reading the lengthy document the movement would set up a sort of super monopoly capitalism, with competition abolished and endless plans drawn up for production and distribution, the whole - as well as the government - to be run by knowledgeable technocrats... That at one time the MSE was linked to the terrorist Cagoule [CSAR] also seems clear... this secret society of technocrats never got close to staging a
    • revolution." A number of other authors disagree with that last notion. You can find more on the SME and the Synarchie in note 3 of the article on Le Cercle and especially in note 61 and 62 of the article on the Pilgrims Society. Here's a quick timeline compiled from the work of Roger Mennevée in Les Documents Politiques, Diplomatiques et Financiers, which was published from 1946 to 1962. 1922 The SME is born in Europe and its membership slowly rises over the years. 1932 The SME controls the Theosophy Society [it is known that Saint Yves d'Alveydre with his Synarchie concept was a significant influence on Blavatsky] and other dissident branches. February 1934Jean Coutrot begins his intense recruitment. He creates organizations like the CPEE, PCES, CEPH, CHPS, etc. At that moment, the SME has about 300 members, which will start to rise more rapidly from this point on. 1934 The SME controls the leadership of the Cagoule, a fascist organization which worked to undermine the French republic. 1934 The SME tries to take over the French government through La Cagoule. Fails. 1935 The SME has quietly penetrated the Council of the Order of the Grand Orient of France and the Federal Council of the Grand Lodge of France. 1937 The SME, again, tries to take over the French government through its military wing, the SCRA. Fails. July 1940 After the Germans have conquered France, the SME ascends to power. The SME in France becomes the Vichy government. Post WWII The movement is said to have survived. Jean Violet, who was a member of the CSAR, becomes part of Otto von Habsburg's (and Coudenhove-Kalergi's) Vatican-Paneuropa network. Both become primary founders of Le Cercle, one of the
    • most important branches of this Vatican- Paneuropa network. Extra: reported coups (how we keep on top of the world) Over the years I came across certain and alleged coups in the countries below, usually carried out by by the CIA and other times by MI6 and French intelligence. Several of the coups also involved the Israelis. The dates are picked based on either a major event in that year or when a slower, more drawn-out coup went into action - like in Tibet, for example. This list is just a guide. Google the country listed, togeter with "coup" and "CIA", and you are likely to find more than enough information. Some curious assassinations, which could be suspected as having been part of coup, have not been listed. An example of this are the deaths of the left-leaning Indian politicians Sanjay Gandhi (1980), Indira Gandhi (1984) and Rajiv Gandhi (1991). Keep in mind that "open action", instead of "covert action", has become the norm since the early 1980s, meaning that major thinks tanks and foundations continue to support student and "pro-democracy" groups in all countries the West takes an interest in. Freedom House, the National Endowment for Democracy, the National Democratic Institute the Open Society Foundations of George Soros have been examples of this type of activity. Like Allen Weinstein, co-founder of the National Endowment for Democracy, acknowledged: "A lot of what we do today was done covertly 25 years ago by the CIA."
