Delaware. They have been one of the richest families in America since the 19th Century. Two family members are known for their role in criminal cases. John DuPont murdered Olympic gold medalist Dave Schulz in 1996 and his heir was convicted of raping his 3-year-old daughter in 2009. As of 2016 the family fortune was estimated to be over $15 billion.
The Astor Family
The name of the Astor family stretches back all the way to the early 1700’s. Again, this family has its roots in the USA, once hailed as being the land of the free, but simultaneously also accredited as being the home of globalism and the New World Order. For many years the Astor’s were known as the landlords of New York due to the amount of real estate they owned in this area. They also came to prominence in the UK during the 19th and 20th Centuries. Originally the roots of the family can be traced back to the Alp in Italy. John Astor was one of the richest people in history, born from a family of flute makers in Germany who settled in England.
The Bundy Family
The Bundy family are perhaps one of the lesser known families of the 13 bloodlines. The Bundy’s are a modern Illuminati family (rose to prominence in 19th Century) with ties to America and a lot of the Illuminati operations that take place there. This includes the Manhattan Project, matters of private security and CIA operations including mind control. They are also involved in groups such as the Bilderberg group, the Council of Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission. Many Bundy’s went to top American universities and are/all members of the notorious Skull and Bones society associated with every President of the USA. While most would not associate the Bundy’s with an Illuminati elite bloodline, in the modern era two Bundy brothers held key positions that controlled much information fed to U.S. Presidents during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. They prefer to take roles very close to primary positions so they can control the process. If you were to look back through the ranks of political offices you may find that the Bundy’s have all held key role in political positions. THE Three most prominent Bundies include Harvey Hollister Bundy, Sr., William P. Bundy, and McGeorge Bundy. They were extremely influential in shaping American politics but are not as well-known as typical Illuminati members.
The Collins Family
Again, another secret family of the Illuminati. Precious little is known about the history of this family. It is suspected that this family is actually one of the more powerful families within the “cabal”. This is becoming a popular theory, that the families that are most commonly heard about, such as the Rothschilds, are actually the weaker of the 13 bloodlines. However, power is always sifting back and forth between these families so the lines are not clearly drawn. Every family seeks more and more power in what they view as a giant game with humanity as a mere pawn. No quarter is given to losers, as not winning is a sign of natural selection that the loser is predestined to shortly join the extinct. The Collins family is rumored to have links with the New England Satanists. Astronaut Michael Collins is a possible member. Joan Collins is another key Illuminati member. It is said that the Rothschilds are the financial power, but that the Collins hold the power of magic. Many of their family members are witches and wield great spiritual power. They have been kept out of the limelight because they have more occult power than the Rothschilds or the Rockefellers.
The Freeman Family
Again, another family that is not traditionally though to be members of the infamous 13. They are heavily connected with the French fraternal organization known as the Priority of Zion. Two Freeman’s have been key advisors to French Presidents. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is run by the Freemans, ostensibly as an Illuminati front. Whenever any legitimate criticism comes on an Illuminati organization the ADL can declare this to be mere defamation. It was Walter Freeman who introduced the concept of lobotomy into the US. This is regarded as a brutal form of mind control permitted to be done as a benefit to humanity but being anything but. The late Grand Master of the Priory of Zion was Gaylord Freeman.
The Li Bloodline
It should be noted than family names mean more to Chinese people than to those in the West. Two people in China with the same surname, such as Li, would view themselves as relatives. This is obviously not the case if two people were to meet each other in the West with the name ‘Smith’ or ‘Johnson’. The Li family is quite popular in China and has a rich and varied history. But there are 3 very significant Chinese individuals with the surname ‘Li’. There are around 6000 surnames for over 1 billion Chinese. And 5 big family names in China, Chen, Li, Huang, Zhang, and He. The 3 notable individuals are:
• Billionaire, philanthropist and de facto ruler of Hong Kong, Li Ka-shing
• Li Peng, the ruler of Red China
• Lee Kuan Yew President of Singapore
Li Ka-Shing is the one to watch out for and the one most definitely a member of the Illuminati, if Illuminator and occult researcher Fritz Springmeier. The Rothschild and the Rockefellers have a good relationship with the Li’s.
The Kennedy Family
This family is the matter of some debate when it comes to Illuminati membership. This is mainly because of the love many have for President John Francis Kennedy and the belief that he was one of the last true presidents. Many contend that every President since has been no more than a puppet. It does seem as if he went against the status quo and existing power structures and fought for the American people against the existing elites. Nevertheless, the Kennedy empire was built on bootlegging and criminal activity. It is an American political dynasty which stretches back for some generations. The general consensus seems to be that they are members of the Illuminati but have a history of battling against them. In other words, they simply wanted more power for themselves and were unwilling to be puppets. JFK’s father John Patrick Kennedy was a member of the Pilgrim society, ranking him as a 6th level Illuminati initiate. These types of power structures are renowned for having chains of hierarchies and levels so it is impossible to gauge who really rules. The controlling hands and the all-seeing eye are now known to the public, no matter how many declare that the truth is coming out.
The Onassis Family
The Onassis family was a key Illuminati family; however, their power had waned considerably in the last number of years. The key player in the Onassis family was Aristotle Onassis, who died in 1975. Aristotle made his fortune through the purchase of oil tankers in the 1950’s. Aristotle financed and assisted Hitler during the war effort along with Rockefeller and the Kennedys. Huge profits were made as a result. Despite this there are still some key players in the Onassis family. Aristotle’s brother in law, Stavros Niarchos, is a powerful Bilderberg elite. Allegedly, the executive committee of the Bilderberg group is equivalent to a 9th level Illuminati initiate. Stavros married the granddaughter of Henry Ford, 38 years his junior, only to divorce her shortly afterwards, making a fortune in the process. He worked closely with David Rockefeller.
The Reynolds Family
The Reynolds are famous for their role as tobacco merchants, and less well known for their many dealing in drugs of all kinds, which is where they really made their fortune. Some of the family members have written occult books and they are heavily connected to the Knights Templar and to the Freemasons. They are allied with the DuPont’s, the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, the Grace’s and the Grey’s. Definitely one of the more powerful Illuminati bloodlines. They are also closely associated with the Duke and Cullman families. Their major financial interests lie in banking, Aluminum, tobacco and illegal drugs. Because they are so closely interwoven with the Duke’s and the Cullman’s the three are best dealt with together. Important members of these three families include Angier Biddle Duke, Richard S. Reynolds, Jr., and Joseph F. Cullman, all of whom are members of the Pilgrim society.
The Van Duyn Family
The Van Duynn’s are one of the more mysterious Illuminati families. They have their origins in Holland and it is difficult to trace their history. As a general rule of thumb those who are lesser known wield the most power. Interesting that there is not even a Wikipedia page about the family bloodline, only some individual members. I would say the fact that there is literally no information about this family is a telltale sign of the true power wielders.
The Merovingian Family
Like the Van Duyn’s, practically nothing is available online about this family, except for the fact that they are definitely a ruling Illuminati family. The roots of the family can be traced back for centuries but as for the activity of specific family members in the modern era little is known.
Other notable families that are also sometimes claimed to be of the ranks of Illuminati are the Russel’s, the Disney’s, Krupp’s and McDonalds. In addition to these four families, there are hundreds of others who are considered less pure by the main 13 members. They wield less influence and may have married with a few ‘pure’ members. Some contend that the list is always changing given that the dark Illuminati at the higher levels can shape shift and reincarnate consciously. Thus, a century ago the families were different, including perhaps the Borgias, the De Medici’s and the Spears.
It is interesting to look at popular science fiction and fantasy movies and see the many references to these ruling elites. In Harry Potter, there are the Pure Bloods of Voldemort who intermarry and these 13 families do not permit any interference. In Lord of the Rings there is reference to the great eye of Sauron and in Underworld there is much interesting talk of family dynasties who look at humans as a resource to be managed. As the battle between the royal families’ wages on there is little thought given to the welfare of the humans.
The Bilderberg Group
The Bilderberg group is a group of powerful elites who meet once a year to discuss world affairs. This group is accused of being the shadow government of the world and at their annual meeting discuss. Officially it is a closed door meeting where leader in industry and academia can discuss world affairs. Centenarian David Rockefeller, an adviser to the group, is said to have a large influence on the agenda and who gets invited. In 2014 at the annual meeting the closing statements mentioned the issue of overpopulation on the planet and how to curb the number of individuals. This led many theorists to lump the Bilderberg group in with the Illuminati and that the the main theme of the Bilderberg annual meetings is global depopulation. The chairman also allegedly talked about reducing the mass population to “classical slave wages” and reducing the population under the guise of trans humanism. While these sort of claims can be viewed with skepticism, surely an organization where presidents, billionaires, prime ministers, established families and aristocracy sit side by side to discuss world affairs represents, at the very least, a conflict of interest.
Illuminati Symbols and Gestures
Conspiracy proponents are claiming that Illuminati symbols are constantly in plain sight. It is alleged that by putting the symbols in plain sight individuals are giving subconscious consent to be ruled by their overlords. The Illuminati are reported to have a well-known hand gesture for their identification. The same hand gesture is seen by celebrities and politicians and is what identifies these individuals as members of the infamous group. One question is whether or not such celebrities and politicians actually know that they are members of these groups. Some claim that they are hypnotized and are simply not aware of what they are doing. Tales of the Illuminati often go hand in hand with those of mind control, the occult and hypnotism.
The great Eye
The All seeing eye on the pyramid or the “Eye of Providence” is the most commonly seen Illuminati symbol, and is even included on American Dollar Bills, along with the word “A New Order for the Ages” (Novos Ordo Seclorum , in Latin). The eye is thought to represent the eye of Lucifer or the eye of Horus and it’s floating over an unfinished pyramid, as the Illuminati’s work is never quite complete. Roman numerals MDCCLXXVI (1776) appear at the base, the year the Illuminati was founded. The great eye is also mentioned in Lord of the Rings. The official and logical explanation is that the declaration of Independence was founded in 1776, the all seeing eye represents God’s omni-present in the universe and the pyramid is unfinished because America is always working for perfection.
The inverted pyramid is another common symbol used often by heavy metal bands and is undoubtedly one of the most prolific symbols of satanism. By inverting a symbol the opposite meaning is attached, and the pentagram is deemed a symbol of white magic, often associated with Christianity, the five senses or the five wounds of the Christ. With the single point upward it depicts the mastery of the Spirit over the 4 elements of matter. When inverted it represents the power of the body over the soul or spiritual body, often used by followers of the Left Hand Path, Satanists and black magicians, and often associated with Free Masonry.Conspiracy proponents often cite the fact that the U.S Medal of valour is an inverted pyramid.
The “A-ok” hand sign is touted by conspiracy theorists as a standard Illuminati sign, known as the 666 sign. Yes, this is the sign used by divers to communicate that everything is running smoothly. The rationale given by the occultists is that the three fingers are representative of the unholy trinity – the horned god, goddess and antichrist. The circle is symbolic of the sun deity and the Illuminati’s never ending search for more light. Another alleged hand sign is the sign of the horns, used often by presidents, heavy metal bands and celebrities, with the index and little finger pointing out and the middle and ring finger curled inwards. This is supposed to represent the horns of Satan and is apparently a salute to Satan himself. If this holds ground it would appear we are all part of the Illuminati – Who hasn’t used the a-ok sign?
One prominent Illuminati hand gesture is known as El Diablo. A lot of the information with regard to Illuminati symbolism can be attributed to researcher Texe Marrs. According to some, such as Fritz Springmeier, the sign of el Diablo/Sign of the Horns is a type of hypnotic induction which may trigger certain forms of programming. However, this sign has a variety of meanings and has been used in many cultures. This sign is formed by holding the index and little finger up while holding the middle and ring finger down. It is frequently seen in rock and roll and this thus it is also claimed that these musicians are consciously or subconsciously part of the Illuminati or that their music is satanic. The flip side of this is that is was also frequently seen in India usef by none other than Gautama Buddha as Karana Mudra. It helped with the expulsion of demons. So, using another perspective you could actually claim that all the people using these are actually light workers who are working against the Illuminati. It all depends on what you believe or chose to believe. The sign is also used in Italy and other Mediterranean cultures to ward off bad luck when an unfortunate event occurred. It was actually used in Italy to ward off another alleged Illuminati symbol, the evil all seeing eye of Horus.
Hand on Heart
Apparently having the hand over the heart is another sign of Illuminati symbolism. Placing the right hand over the heart and having the left hand facing outwards is a sign that the instigator is a member of the Illuminati. Both the pop and George Bush have been seen using these signals on multiple occasions. And the truth lies within the eyes of the beholder. Conspiracy theorists can claim that this is evidence that the pope and George Bush are both members of the Illuminati. While other can claim that if the pope is doing it, then it is evidence that it is not an Illuminati sign. The hand over the heart is allegedly symbolic of the fact that should a Freemason reveal the secrets of the society of free masons then his or her heart would be ripped out. This vow of sign is called the masonic oath. Picture
V for Victory
Also known as the Chevron, Sign of Pan the Horned God, Peace Sign. This hand gesture is formed using the index and middle finger to form a V shape with the other fingers closed. It was originally popularized with Winston Churchill during World War II. According to Texe Marrs’s Codex Magica :
Done in the typical fashion, this sign literally means intercourse by the devil—to be violated sexually by the horned God. The thumb holding down the fingers creates the “vulva,” while the two largest fingers pointed up are the horns of the God (Satan).
This sign can also be taken to mean a symbol of wrath and destruction. In typical satanical fashion, it is allegedly twisted to mean its opposite. It is now the universally acceptable sign for peace. This particular sign has the numerical value of five (3 +2) and is taken to represent the sign for the satanic sign of fives.
Masonic Cry of Distress, Hailing Sign of Distress
The sign can be formed by raising both hands in the air with palms facing outwards. Should a Freemason ever find him or herself in a court of law and wish to appeal to a fellow Freemason (who the judge invariably is) all they need do is make this gesture. The judge will then simply rule in the favor of the Freemason. Remember, the Freemason is oath bound to help other Freemasons get off the hook by all means possible.
Other Illuminati Conspiracy Theories
There are numerous other Illuminati Conspiracy theories which I won’t waste too much time on, given their unsubstantiated and unlikely nature. There is the Illuminati Cloning Conspiracy, where the Illuminati regularly clone celebrities, and that the Queen of England is herself a clone. This particular conspiracy came from a man called Donald Marshall, who claims to have been a clone himself and to have seen the cloning center. A more popular theory believed by an astoundingly large group of people is that of an Extra-Terrestrial Reptile Alien race governing man kind by taking human form or by bribing/threatening individuals in positions of power. This theory originated with an Englishman called David Icke, who has for some reason made numerous books and documentaries on the issue. He also claimed to be Jesus Christ on live television. Another Illuminati Conspiracy claims that the headquarters of Satan are located in the Vatican where evil rituals take place under neath the very ground where a catholic mass is undertaken. Every sort of criminal and satanic activity that can be thought of has been lain at the feet of the Illuminati – from organ harvesting, satanic rituals involving blood sacrifice, pedophilia, sex trafficking, Area 51 torture, murders, bribery and mind control.
The Freemasons and The Illuminati
Just who, and what are, the Freemasons? Freemasonry has long been linked with the notorious Illuminati. However, it can easily be said that the real truth has been dead and buried or at the very least twisted. And it could also quite easily be said that that the truth of the matter is far more complex than simply labeling either group as good or bad or pure or evil. It could well be that both the Illuminati and the Freemasons started out as inherently pure groups which were later corrupted by dark forces. There are definitely people who believe that the Freemason society is simply a group which consists of good people who recognize and protect sacred knowledge for the good of all. They are quite open about their comings and goings, openly posting on internet forums and having public meetings and lodges. It may be true that the group is corrupt at the top but the individuals at the bottom are trying to better themselves and to work for their fellow man. We will never know unless we actually join the order as everything is mere speculation. There are so many hierarchies and layers of secrecy that the truth of freemasonry is murky at best, and probably a mix of both good and evil. It is most likely that the vast majority of Freemasons are ignorant of the true purpose as there are so many degrees from the bottom of the pyramid to the top. Judging from the activity of Freemasons on the internet, is does seem by and large that the group consists of a group of brothers helping one another out through the mutual recognition of hand gestures. And by using good people to do good works at the bottom it keeps the real actions of the leaders shrouded in mystery. Such as it always was, the majority know not what they do while there is a ruling elite of 1% and 1% of enlightened beings who truly know what is going on.
In relation to the Illuminati, the name literally means illumined/enlightened ones. So, it could well be that the name of light/illumined ones has been poisoned by dark forces so that most now actually believe that being part of an enlightened group is something to be avoided! It could also be that the group was initially full of enlightened beings who wanted to protect sacred knowledge and bring light to the world was later corrupted. This is the actual stated aim of the group of Bavarian Illuminati setup in 1776 by Adam Weischaupt. It could well have been quickly infiltrated when the powers that be found out about their intentions. Societies of Illumination and societies of darkness both have to go underground in many places as the battle between the two wages while broader society remains in darkness.
How to Join the Illuminati
It must be understood that there is no real way to “join” the Illuminati. There is a hierarchy of individuals in a certain order who can work for the Illuminati. At best, you can be a pawn of said Illuminati on the premise that they do in fact exist. You can join the ranks of the Freemasons if you have a friend who is contained within their groups. You can lookout for some of the typical hand gestures outline above. If you see someone doing this sign often, then inquire subtly. You will then be taken to an initiation of sorts. You will have to swear the masonic oath. But after this expect to have years of service and not to really get anywhere. There may be certain things you can do to “Advance”, but it is most definitely not a clear-cut process. Asking how to join the Illuminati is like asking how to join the Denver Broncos or the Barcelona soccer team. Have lots of skill, talent and possibly lots of financial backing and you are on the right track, yet it is still not a guarantee. You might think you are part of the Illuminati, yet you will still only be their servant like a lot of the politicians and celebrities. You will be a Freemason, yet not a core group of the ruling elites.
Those who are members of the Illuminati all go to prestigious schools and all undergo some form of initiation. In the US, this is done through the Skull and Bones Society in the best universities(Skull and Bones is at Yale but there are equivalent societies and initiation groups in other universities). All Presidents were instated this way. The whole idea behind the Illuminati is that the people are previously selected to occupy certain roles within society based on their purity(bloodline, coming from the right interbred family). All of the important people will have the finances and go to the best schools where they will be initiated and take the pledge of the Brotherhood. Presidents take this pledge which means they swear allegiance to the Illuminati before they swear allegiance to the United States of America. So there is no way to join they, as it is all panned in advance.
In conclusion, it seems that Illuminati started out as an enlightenment group in 1776, was rapidly shut down and now has been used by conspiracy theorists ever since. Any group of elites who meet in secret seem to be deemed “Illuminati”. Any group alleged to have a depopulation or mass subjugation agenda are also deemed to be Illuminati, as is anyone who uses certain usually innocuous hand signs.
The recent news and activity with regard to the Illuminati has died down. This is due to the intangible nature of the Illuminati themselves. It can be said that even conspiracy theorists have gotten sick of the concept. It is too vague and the term is now more or less meaningless. The Illuminati are connected with the killing of practically every high-profile individual in some way or another. The Illuminati are “Old News” in comparison to the New World Order, the Deep State and the Shadow Government.
There may be some merit to the New World Order as there does appear to be a globalist agenda involving consolidated power at the top with a merging of countries. Aliens, Reptiles, and subconscious symbolism are by their nature impossible to verify. If the Illuminati exist they are far smarter and more ordered than the general populace and we are no closer to the truth of the matter despite lots of work from various individuals. To add to the mystery, there are many spiritual masters who declare themselves to be illumined or enlightened. This could well be the original meaning of the word. And thus, there are more than likely secret societies whose job it is to guard sacred knowledge but are entirely benevolent, as well as secret societies which are entirely malevolent. But there is no way of knowing without actually being in these orders.
