What is the Cabal and How Dark Forces Control the Masses

What is the Cabal and How Dark Forces Control the Masses

If there are dark forces, or a cabal, that control world economies (and minds), as well as secret factions within religious organizations, then a lot of strange things begin to make sense.

Many believe some covert but influential organization is responsible for globally impactful circumstances or events. And the truth is that people conspire — they gather in small groups and work together to take control. Such meetings have been going on since the beginning of our species. But when the actions of secret societies become sinister and harmful to others, then perhaps it’s time for the populace to wake up.

Sometimes called the Illuminati, the New World Order or even the Global Elite, “cabal” refers to secret factions working inside our governments with an agenda for world domination. To become aware of their entrainment, we must empower ourselves with an awareness free from their crafted agendas.

As conscious beings who can see what is happening in the world around us, we are in place to call out and disempower their secrecy. And the best news buttercup, they don’t win! There is nothing to fear.

The truth will be our greatest boon. Cosmic order will prevail and we will achieve the ascension that has been 25,000 years in the making.

The Cabal and Secret Societies

Secrecy needs darkness to survive. We may have heard the name, but what is the Cabal? If we’re unaware of their existence, we are powerless against their manipulation.

Secret societies are nothing new. From the Illuminati to the Freemasons, they have thrived behind closed doors, teaching countless generations’ beliefs and knowledge. Secrecy and power are their currency. Like the Hydra, they have many heads, many names, all with the same belief that power and domination is the role of the select few.

The Bilderberg Group

More than a half-century ago, in 1954, Daniel Estulin wrote, “the most powerful men in the world met for the first time in Oosterbeek, Netherlands,” to debate the future of the world. From that day forward, right up to the present, they have been meeting every year in secret. They called themselves the Bilderberg Group, which has a membership of world-power elites, mostly from America, Canada, and Western Europe.

These are mostly high-profile individuals who are influential in an array of areas ranging from politics to entertainment, and from industry to banking. Well represented are top figures from the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), IMF, World Bank, Trilateral Commission, EU, and powerful central bankers from the Federal Reserve, the ECB, and Bank of England.

The official Bilderberg website notes that discussions are held under the Chatham House Rule. This refers to the fact that participants can use any information they receive during the meeting, but are sworn not to reveal its source. The last meeting took place in the spring of 2019 at the Hotel Montreux Palace in the Swiss town of Montreux.

The Bilderberg Group’s highly secretive meetings, without a fixed agenda, according to The Local, a Stockholm-based news outlet, act as “regular fodder for conspiracy theorists who believe its participants act as a secret world government…However, organizers argue the private nature of the event gives attendees the chance to hold informal discussions about major issues.”

The Shadow Goverment

The Deep State

Mike Lofgren, former career congressional staff member who served on the House and Senate budget committees, explained there is a visible government in Washington, DC, and there is a shadowy, more indefinable government. The former is traditional Washington partisan politics, which is just the tip of the iceberg and features theoretically controllable via elections. But below the iceberg operates “according to its own compass heading,” and it does not matter who is formally in power.

Of the Deep State’s motives, Lofgren wrote that the state within a state is hiding mostly in plain sight, and its operators mainly act in the light of day. This other government cannot accurately be termed an “establishment.” In terms of its scope, financial resources, and sheer global reach, the American hybrid (deep) state, is in a class by itself. It is neither omniscient nor invincible. “The institution is not so much sinister (although it has highly sinister aspects) as it is relentlessly well entrenched.”

The Illuminati

Many believe that there is an inside group working to achieve world domination and that one of their greatest weapons is mind control. Also in their arsenal is believed to be ways to manipulate the world economy, monopolize resources, and limit the human potential that doesn’t serve their needs. 

The Illuminati began as a group with ambitious goals, and originally as the Bavarian Illuminati, a secret society that operated from 1776 to 1785, at the same time that the United States of America was being founded. Adam Weishaupt, a German law professor, spearheaded the Illuminati because he sought to advance Enlightenment ideals, especially among elites. Weishaupt intended to educate Illuminati members in reason, philanthropy, and other secular values. This way, they would be able to exert political decisions while holding office.

The Illuminati’s goals and reputation often exceeded the means of its leaders. At its outset, in the late 1700s, the group consisted of just a few people. And as far as anyone could tell, it never amounted to more than 2,500 members. The cabal’s growth was possible when the members infiltrated other groups as sleeper cells. For instance, Illuminati members joined Freemason lodges to recruit new members to expand their secret society.

Edwards noted that “It’s also difficult to untangle the success of the Illuminati from that of the Freemasons, which they infiltrated and commingled with. It’s just as tough to tell what influence the Illuminati actually had as opposed to the influence people think they had.”

A hundred years ago, President Woodrow Wilson made a statement that is ever more poignant today, providing numerous reasons to believe that the Illuminati is alive and thriving. He said, “We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled governments in the civilized world — no longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government by… a vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”

The Freemasons

Freemasonry is the world’s oldest and largest fraternity whose origins may be traced to local fraternities of stonemasons in the Middle Ages from the end of the 14th century. Freemasons regulated qualifications of stonemasons and their interaction with authorities and those who hired them.

Mike Colagrossi of BigThink explained, “The Freemasons encompass one of the largest secret fraternal organizations worldwide. Spread through the conquest and advancement of the British Empire throughout the last few centuries, Freemasonry remains popular in countries that were once under British rule. Estimates of membership in this group number anywhere from 2–6 million…During the 17th and 18th centuries, the Masons began to take on a more religious and ritualistic role in their organization. It became a place for men to meet, philosophize, and deal with political issues. The first Grand Lodge opened up in England in 1717.

The famous Founding Fathers of the United States, including Washington, Franklin, and others, were freemasons whose Enlightenment philosophies may have been kept secret because they clashed with church doctrine. However, some believe their secrecy was linked to the activities of the Illuminati. The Freemason’s use of the symbolism of the all-seeing eye above a pyramid on the dollar bill, for example, is said to have come from Adam Weishaupt. The Latin words encircling the pyramid translate to “it has favored our undertakings, new order of the ages,” and some take this to mean “the Announcement of a New World Order.”

False Flag Events

One of the hallmarks of conspiracy theories is that official answers are unsatisfying, vital information is withheld regarding strange events, or answers strain credibility. This leads many to the conclusion that the “powers that be” are deliberately carrying out a disinformation campaign to protect their secret activities. History is replete with examples of big news stories that have left the general public dissatisfied with official reports.

Down through the ages, we have seen false flag events — reasons to start wars or institute restrictive laws. Examples of these include:

The USS Maine sinking

The USS Maine was a US Navy ship that sank in Havana Harbor in February 1898, leading to the outbreak of the Spanish–American War in April of that year. American newspapers claimed that the Spanish were responsible for the ship’s destruction. A later investigation showed that the ship was actually destroyed due to a coal fire onboard.

The Gulf of Tonkin Incident

Was used as an excuse to escalate the war against North Vietnam. Following the incident in which the Vietnamese were said to attack US destroyer ships in neutral waters,  President Lyndon was authorized to “take all necessary measures to repel any armed attack against the forces of the United States and to prevent further aggression.”
A later investigation found that the destroyers were actually on an espionage mission in waters claimed by North Vietnam.


The Nayirah Testimony

Led to the US invasion of Iraq, yet few knew that the testimony was completely fake. The Bush administration advanced an emotionally moving testimony from a 15-year-old Kuwaiti girl named Nayirah. Crying, she described what she had seen with her own eyes in a hospital in Kuwait City — soldiers invading hospitals and taking babies out of incubators who were left to die. PR Watch online reported that following the war, human rights investigators attempted to confirm Nayirah’s story and could find no witnesses or other evidence to support it. Amnesty International, which had fallen for the story, was forced to issue an embarrassing retraction.



Despite overwhelming expert opinion from fire and emergency crews, architects and engineers, aviation experts, demolition experts, and even eyewitnesses that details in the official account are blatantly untruthful, 9/11 led to many actions to restrict freedom and invade privacy in the name of security. This one event seems to have catapulted us into a New World Order reminiscent of author George Orwell’s world of 1984, with our own government spying on us, conducting body searches, installing detectors in airports and government buildings, instituting travel restriction, creating the Department of Homeland Security, and so on.

A Fear-Based Agenda

Fear is arguably one of the two most powerful motivators of human beings, with the other being love. To many, it seems as though the mainstream media, which is owned by the most conservative and powerful multinational corporations the world has ever known, capitalizes on school shootings, acts of terrorism, and swings in the economy to control the populace.

Add to this the increasing stress of the middle and lower classes just to pay their bills, and we are left scared and confused with a world turning to giant corporations for faster (and artificially produced) foods that are deleterious to the health, pharmaceuticals to mitigate stress and anxiety, terrified that supposedly dangerous immigrants are seeking to infiltrate our country, weapons to protect ourselves from the attackers we see in the media, and foreign governments threatening to take away our rights.

Mike Lofgren adds to this list: detaining prisoners indefinitely without charge, conducting dragnet surveillance on the American people without a judicial warrant, and engaging in unprecedented (at least since the McCarthy era) politically motivated investigations against federal employees (the so-called “Insider Threat Program.” All the while, we seem to be in a situation where our protectors are actually our imprisoners.

To keep us from uniting for a common cause of freedom of mind and body, the “free world” is perpetually subjected to media broadcasts and political leaders that divide people — Democrats against Republicans, blue states versus red states, people of color against “old white men,” rich against poor, and so on. 

Six Ways the Cabal Influences the World Today

The Cabal has orchestrated its efforts through various arms working to assure we do not become aware of our true mastery.


The most insidious activity is covert media programming. From cartoons to pop music and even news and mainstream television, a fear agenda permeates all. This subconscious programming entrains us to be fearful, stressed, and sick.

Hollywood’s creative efforts often fit into a precise formulaic scripts Blockbuster movies are in place to program our reactions so that when a cataclysmic event does occur, they can predict our responses.

Pharmaceuticals and Food

Genetically modified foods, sugar, and chemicals rather than living foods are all part of a long term plan to weaken and sicken us.

In adding fluoride to the drinking water, we are unknowingly pumped with chemicals that ensure we cannot reach the states of spiritual expansion. Fluoride blocks the pineal gland chakra (center of psychic vision) and inhibits the opening of our higher spiritual functions.


The mainstream education system does not encourage free thinking, instead of creating followers. Children who do not comply in sitting quietly in their seats they are placed on drugs at a young age.

More damaging still is the fact that modern education is a complex brainwashing system designed to teach the version of the world they want us to believe is real. William Tompkins, a former Naval insider, boldly states:

“Every school on the planet has been given lies. All education has been given lies about astronomy, mathematics, technical capabilities, [and] history.”

When we are falsely taught what the world is, we cannot see beyond the scope of what we have been programmed to believe.

Science and Technology

The government uses scientific innovation, financed by the Cabal, as a means of power. When we recognize that every technological advance made in the last century is destructive to the environment, and disrupts the harmony of the natural world, we begin to glimpse the reaching of their control.

Nikola Tesla created brilliant inventions that would grant us all true freedom. His vision was so far-reaching he created technologies that would connect and empower the world. His ideas posed a huge threat to the ways the Cabal maintain wealth and control.

Suppression of patents and great thinkers who create technologies to better our world are notoriously squashed so we are crippled in our ability to thrive and grow. If they control science and technology, they proliferate their agenda to suppress freedom of thought and spirit.

Monetary System

The Cabal has created an exploited society living in debt and forced to work jobs that drain our life force. We become slaves to the money (or lack thereof) and must rely on the establishment to save us in the form of loans, credit cards, and fees. While the global elite amasses larger amounts of wealth, the middle class is buried in greater debt to simply survive.

Religion and Science

Religion is blocking our path to God while Science is closing our minds.

Belief systems limit our access to spirit and truth. Through science and religion, the cabal crafted a lens with which we view the world. This ensures we do not go beyond the current limitations of perception.

The main way they control us is by controlling our co-creative ability. They control our power of creative thinking, dreaming, and manifesting, diluting our ability to trust and know ourselves. In doing so they have made us believe we are not in control of our reality.

When we recognize that everything we think and feel is a cabal program, we lift the veil to take actions to awaken and restore our innate powers.

A Warped and Censored Sense of History

George Orwell warned, “The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” 

The American Council of Alumni and Trustees reported that less than half of college graduates could identify Washington as the American general at the Battle of Yorktown. Worse, the question was multiple choice, and the other three choices weren’t even from the Revolutionary War period.  Most top colleges do not require students majoring in history to take U.S. history class. One study showed that only 12 percent of college grads knew the relationship between the Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment, and only 15 percent identified correctly that James Madison is the “Father of the Constitution.”

The information that makes its way into the textbooks to teach successive generations is, at best, lacking in context and a multiplicity of points of view. Eleventh-grade U.S. history teacher Samantha Manchac, Houston, said that the guidelines for textbooks downplay some issues — like slavery — and skirt others — like Jim Crow laws. History professor Edward Countryman, Southern Methodist University, said that there is a “huge disconnect between all that we’ve learned and what tends to go into the standard story as textbooks tell it…It’s kind of like teaching physics and stopping at Newton without bringing in Einstein, and that sort of thing.”

No doubt, the standards of public education in the United States have been steadily declining and curriculums have been suffering from censorship by omission. But the real question is who, or what group, is behind this decline — is it an accident of bureaucracy or the result of a more nefarious plan to dumb down society to gain more control over the masses?

If we keep Orwell’s prophetic words in mind, then at least we can be aware that there have always been individuals who have formed cabals to shape the world according to their own greed, power, and vanity. The biggest question now is this: Where are these powerful few leading us as a civilization, and is it too late to escape from their clutches?

Now is a good time to remember that Orwell also said, “In a time of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

Weather Modification Technology – Good Idea or Bad? The Science of Playing God and an Overview of the Technologies

To what extent people are able to control the weather is a bit of a mystery to most. It has been a goal for ages, and perhaps could even be considered the “final frontier” in dominating and controlling Mother Nature. Despite fairly familiar terms such as “cloud seeding,” most believe that controlling the weather on a large scale cannot be done. Control a hurricane? Nonsense! Besides, the idea of controlling the weather with weather modification technology or weather changing machines is a bit alarming to most people. The sheer arrogance of such a proposal has the flavor of “playing God.”

Indeed, even at our technologically advanced state, the inner and outer workings of our planet still hold many mysteries. Have humans really advanced enough to actively manipulate this balance without harming or disrupting the overall planet? Of course, this harmony has been disrupted by climate change, the causes of which continue to spark heated debate. Regardless, with the growing concern over our changing climate, is it possible that weather modification technology could help?
