    I have heard of the term, the power elite, most of my life. As a child, I associated this with the old 'them' that everyone talked of.

    But now it seems there really is a group labeled The Power Elite, This group is said to be made up of some of the members of the upper class who have the interest, and the financial abilities to involve themselves in molding those of us not in this tight group. That's probably is 99% of the rest of humanity.

    Now I do understand that the majority of the upper classes are not involved or even want to be involved in such a group.

    I also understand that this group has been around for all time. Although, in the past, elitists were more localized to certain areas. But, the advent of world wide communications has made it possible to manipulate whole countries and the world in general.

    So of course I ask myself just what is the agenda of such a group as "The Power Elite".

    After thinking about it this political season, I have really seen that our TV news, our online medias, and even the way and what our schools are teaching is used to manipulate all of us into of thinking about and doing things that ultimately benefit the members of the power elitists. Those benefits include power, position, class, and most of all money.

    Do you think there is anything that could ever break or even crack the holds these power elitists have on our countries and our world?

    People who have money and power have always been able to use that power to get whatever they wanted, whether it was good or bad for the rest of humanity.
    We have talked on this forum about the control that these elites have on the media, both here and in other countries. Anytime that you have 5-6 large corporations controlling something, they have a virtual monopoly on what is happening in that area. Reporters have to say what they are told, and report the news with the correct slant, or they lose their jobs (and sometimes their lives) when they do not follow orders. Since all of the media is controlled, they are then blacklisted and can't work anywhere else; so most of the news media tells us what they are told.
    This part is well-known and not really a secret or conspiracy anymore.
    It is when you delve into the inside of the power elite and ask whether they are more than just powerful, but instead if they are actually evil, then you get into the underworld of a conspiracy , and the theories abound about the New World Order, the satanic upper level Freemasons, and other secret societies that we never hear about except as conspiracy theories.
    Some believe the elites are controlled by other-world aliens who have come here, and maybe been here for many years. I don't believe in these kinds of aliens; but I do think that there are untold evil forces at work that create the wars and other tragedies in the world.

    Here is one part of a 5-part series by Ron Paul , talking about the power elite. He talks about the banking system right at the first part, and this video was recorded from some television program news way back in 1988.
    Ron Paul was running for President even back then as a Libertarian candidate.
    What is interesting is when he is talking about the big bankers gobbling up the little bankers, and that is exactly what we saw happening in the years following this presentation. I remember there being little city and county banks for each town, even when it was a small town of only a few thousand people.
    Gradually, the larger banks bought out the smaller local banks, and after that the megalith banks bought out the larger ones, and now we have no guppies and only sharks in the waters.
    Much of what Ron Paul is talking about has happened, so he had a good grasp on things even back then. He speaks about the fact that even though we have always had the two-party system, it doesn't really matter as long as the same agenda goes forward with either party in control. This is exactly what @Ken Anderson has been talking about , and it is still happening.

    Here is the first video in the series, but if you look on Youtube , you can watch all five if you are interested.

    North Dakota still has community banks, ones that serve only one or two towns, many of which are not connected with the FDIC.

    Ron Paul explains things very well, btw.

    I think that there are some in Idaho still, too, and probably in some of the other states. The ones that I see here are mostly part of larger banks; but I really haven't looked to see if there are some smaller ones around. Even so, these small banks used to be the norm, and now they seem to be few and far between.

    So, that`s what they are calling themselves these days...A name change...but, of course, the agenda remains basically the same...with maybe just a little variation on the theme of distributing the vast ocean of wealth and power. I`m sure that Mr. Trump is involved in all this at some point. But, then again...perhaps he was when they still referred to themselves as the ...Illuminati...There is just one thing which can break this pattern. But, it would be necessary to be a part of a faith based philosophy in order to believe it.
