I don't have any meaningful comment except to say thanks to Jerry for this most interesting and thought provoking article. We don't know as much as we would like about blood relationships among oligarchs, but secret societies certainly seem to share a lot of DNA. From my recent reading of Ed Griffin's "The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve", it seems that a lot of oligarchs get adopted by existing oligarchs, and then become oligarchs themselves. The Morgans and Rockefellers seem to have been "adopted" by the Rothschilds, for example. I would add a note about the Brits claiming descent from the Israelites. Several centuries earlier, they had claimed descent from Brutus in order to claim to be more Roman than the then invading Romans. Perhaps when Project Bluebeam is enacted, the Brits will claim descent from a prior set of ur-space aliens. See the 5 star review on Amazon of Adrian Gilbert's "The New Jerusalem: The Extraordinary True Story of How a Secret Society Rebuilt London", for a précis of the Brit's ancestral claims. http://www.amazon.com/New-Jerusalem...1662&sr=1-1&keywords=adrian+gilbert+jerusalem (Off topic): BTW, what is the reason for a string bass scroll as your header photo? Does one of you play this noble instrument?
