Charles Savoie

On November 24, 1980, the Associated Press quoted Leonard Bernstein, a
globally prominent musical conductor, as saying in reference to the
Kennedy assassination, �We don�t dare confront the implications. I think
we�re all agreed there was a conspiracy and we don�t want to know. It
involves such a powerful high force in what we call the high places, if we
do know, everything might fall apart.�

This is when I start to deliver what I�ve been hinting at for months as I
have referred to the World Money Power or the Society. I say start,
because a series will be necessary to convey the complete picture. In
order for a few people to exercise the colossal power they do, secrecy is
crucial. That�s why so few outside the Society ever heard of it, or if they
saw references to it, the meaning would not register. There is indeed a
powerful high force in the high places! You must know about them
because their existence governs your future to a disturbing extent. They
are the source of fiat money; the powers behind central banks;
international financiers; warmongers; globalists; cartel monopolists; and
the force suppressing precious metals. JFK, whose father was a member,
strayed from the plan! As Zad Rust commented in �Teddy Bare, The Last
of the Kennedy Clan� (1971)---

�The Warren Commission had no other mission than to conceal the
truth, and it was relentlessly helped in this mission by many official
agencies and by some powerful organized Force of universal scope and
character. This Force of Darkness has already brought the world very
near to the point of no return on the road to total annihilation of the
liberties of man and the independence of nations, and to the
enthronement of the Antichrist.�

This is an organization with two branches, the London branch
founded in 1902, the New York branch in 1903. As rule #1 of their
bylaws states, �The name of the society shall be The Pilgrims.� This is
what they call themselves---The Pilgrims. They may also be referred to
as The Pilgrims Society; Pilgrim Society; Pilgrims of America; Pilgrims
U.S.; Pilgrims of United States; Pilgrims of Great Britain; Pilgrims
(London); Pilgrims (New York) or other slight variants such as Pilgrims
(NYC). The name doesn�t exactly sound menacing, does it? Probably less
so than Skull & Bones Society (Yale University), which has had some
furor raised over it in recent years. The two organizations are
interrelated, with The Pilgrims in much the dominant position, as it is
with other groups with which it is interlocked. Francis F. Randolph of
The Pilgrims, Wall Street financier born in 1889, was treasurer of the
Russell Trust Association for many years, the corporate name of Skull &
Bones, named after the Russell that founded Bones in 1832. The Yale
�secret five� (including Wolf�s Head Society; Book and Snake Society;
Berzelius Society; Scroll & Key Society) were founded as British fronts for
sons of wealthy Americans who were in league with the British Empire
and its World Money Power. Russell & Company was granted opium-
trading concessions in China, by the British East India Company. The
BEIC didn�t have to give any territory away---it did so in exchange for
buying influence in America. Yale University itself is named after Elihu
Yale of the British East India Company, who ran an opium-trading fort in
India! You see, the British Royalty and their allied bankers NEVER give
up trying to control Planet Earth!

While Alexandra Robbins made a stink about Skull & Bones with her
recent book, she neglected to point out that Paul Mellon of Scroll & Key,
by himself, was probably wealthier than half the Bones members
combined. And while Mellon listed his Scroll & Key membership in
Who�s Who, he remained silent about his Pilgrim Society membership to
the end. His name appeared in a 1969 list, the only known year a list was
leaked to the outside world. I reviewed the list at length and concluded
its authenticity from other facts available. Skull & Bones is not equal to
The Pilgrims for several reasons. The most obvious reason is, reins of
power are not turned over to 19 year old boys. When they get to Yale,
they are inducted immediately. There is a 10-year waiting list for joining
The Pilgrims---after the person is selected (by invitation only). A death
has to occur, or by a measure within the organization, decision to
increase its numbers is reached. According to current figures (700), there
is about a one in 410,000 chance of any American being a member. It is
probably rare for a man to become a member before age 40. Also, what
about the powerful people of the country who didn�t attend Yale at all?
Do we just paint them out of the picture because it doesn�t fit into some
thesis by Alexandra Robbins or Antony Sutton? Sutton, by the way,
spent time at the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace at
Stanford University---of which Pilgrim Society members are trustees.
Esquire magazine, September 1977 ran an article on Skull & Bones,
starting on page 84. WHY haven�t they had one about The Pilgrims?

There are many indications that David Rockefeller, at age 89, remains the
most powerful man in the country, and he came from Harvard. Ms.
Robbins claimed Skull & Bones �controls the Rockefeller fortune,� but
gave no documentation. Societies such as Bones are indeed important but
must not be equated to �the senior, Anglo-American Society,� which is
The Pilgrims. Not only is The Pilgrim Society exponentially the most
powerful organization the world has ever known; it is relatively speaking,
the most secretive; and certainly the most dangerous! The sheer network
of thousands of interlocking connections is enough to overwhelm one
person trying to research them. Referring to the power of the
organization, in a speech at the House of Commons on August 20, 1941,
Winston Churchill (a member) said, �No one could stop it. Let it roll on
in full flood, inexorable, irresistible.�

I believe the reason why the name Pilgrims was chosen is an open secret,
like their very existence. The original Pilgrims, who came over on the
Mayflower centuries earlier, left the old world to found a New World
where they believed they could live life their chosen way. These other
Pilgrims, whose Royal roots trace back at least to early medieval times in
Britain and Europe, are leaving the present world system and gravitating
towards a New World---a New World Order. I have compiled enough
information on these men to write millions of words length. That won�t
be possible here. I intend to give a summary as best I can. If anyone
wishes to employ the term �conspiracy,� I have no quarrel with that.
This is precisely what we are examining. To believe otherwise is the
summit of childish naivet�. Use the word intrigue instead if you
assimilate it easier. Other applicable terms such as �Illuminati,� dating to
an Austrian professor on May 1, 1776---Mayday--- are heard. They are
elitists who know how the world should be ordered, the rest of us are
clueless. And they will do anything to achieve that order, even if it calls
for the extermination of half the world�s population---which appears to
be part of the plan.

As to which of its members are most powerful, is subject to conjecture,
and no absolute conclusion can be reached---that�s all known only on the
inside. What is obvious is that the British Royal family was involved
with the founding of the organization, and remains involved to this
moment. Also obvious is that a front man for Lord Rothschild, diamond
cartelist Cecil Rhodes, provided the framework or concept for the Society
in the wills he left. Americans involved in the founding included Joseph
Wheeler, an ex-Confederate general (the British built a lot of war vessels
for the South), and financiers and empire builders like John D.
Rockefeller; Andrew Carnegie; the Vanderbilts, Mellons and Du Ponts.
This plan started with the British, to preserve and increase their Empire.
They realized that they needed powerful allies in their drive to control
the world. The chosen allies became the North American �Robber
Barons,� empire builders including the Astors; Vanderbilts; Rockefellers;
Harrimans; Du Ponts; Mellons; Whitneys; Harknesses and others. We
can assume that however they were approached and drawn into the plan,
the offer went along the lines of �you�ve built an empire, join us if you
want to share in a World Empire!� And like a corporation with shares,
the world is to be divided up according to �shareholdings� within The
Pilgrims organization. I reluctantly call your attention to Revelation
13:16-18 which speaks of everyone being given a number, without which
we cannot buy nor sell. If it happens it will originate from within this
Society. You don�t seriously believe that one man alone could rise to
world prominence, without the concerted efforts of hundreds of powerful
men across a span of many years, do you?

It may be recalled that Rothschild emerged as the richest man in Britain
at the close of the Napoleonic Wars when the Duke of Wellington won at
Waterloo, Belgium in 1815. Assuming that he did become the wealthiest
due to his buying shares on the exchange at collapsed prices in the panic--
word was spread falsely that Napoleon won---, do not lose sight of the
fact that the Royal Family still controlled the military forces of Great
Britain, and if they took too strong a dislike to you, your head could come
off. Also, the Royals of Britain and Europe have been at the wealth
accumulation game for centuries longer than names like Rothschild and
Warburg. The Bank of England came into existence decades before the
Rothschilds became powers. Additionally, the British Empire controlled
immense territories, from whence fantastic wealth was siphoned back to
England and Europe, notably from China and India. Major Canadian
banks of today, including Royal Bank of Canada; Canadian Imperial Bank
of Commerce; and Toronto Dominion Bank, all contain words that point
to ownership by Royal interests, then there�s the Royal Bank of Scotland,
of which the huge (70,000 + employees) National Westminster Bank is a
subsidiary. That it shares its name with the Duke of Westminster is no
accident---the current Duke, Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, one of the
Royals, owns over 300 acres of the choicest property in downtown
London, plus immense land holdings in Canada, Australia, Hawaii and
elsewhere. He is a leading member of The Pilgrims of Great Britain

The Pilgrims organization is a cluster of intermarried old-line rich,
Royals and robber barons who have created the world�s financial
structure. Graphics herein are presented for educational purposes. I am
most assuredly not the first outsider to become aware of the Society.
Psalms 44:21, �Shall not God search this out? For he knoweth the secrets
of the heart.� There must be a fair number of individuals who knew
something about them, yet without realizing their significance and their
intentions. Do they have a website? Not that I have found. The first I
ever heard of them was in the 1971 book, �Nixon, The Man Behind The
Mask� by Gary Allen. That was the same author who wrote the widely
known, �None Dare Call It Conspiracy,� which I thought was an
extremely good effort. On page 223 of his unauthorized Nixon
biography, Allen wrote---

�Bobst is listed as a member of the highly secret Pilgrim Society, which is
even closer to the inner circle of the conspiracy than the CFR.�

He was referring to one of Nixon�s friends, Elmer Bobst, then head of
Warner-Lambert pharmaceutical company. There were no other
references in the book to The Society. I was ablaze with unending drive
to discover more; like a starvation victim suddenly finding himself in a
supermarket! Except in this case, facts are dispersed across millions of
pages of reference material. In �Nixon�s Palace Guard� (1971) also by
Allen, we find on page 146---

�Burns belongs to the Pilgrim Society, a secret group of leftist
international financiers and one-world intellectuals dedicated to reuniting
the United States and Great Britain.�

He was referring to Arthur Burns, head of the Federal Reserve System.
His predecessor was William McChesney Martin Jr., of The Pilgrims,
who chaired the Federal Reserve, 1951-1970 (�underground� in �Who�s
Who,� meaning, he declined to state the fact!) Afterwards, Martin, who
married Cynthia, the daughter of the founder of the Davis Cup (tennis),
was appointed chairman of the Committee to Reorganize the New York
Stock Exchange (increase the �Pilgrimization�) in 1971. (The head of the
exchange from 1951-1967, George Keith Funston, was another member).
Martin became the youngest president ever of the New York Stock
Exchange in 1938 at age 32, a post he held into 1941. From 1946-1948
Martin chaired the Export-Import Bank of the U.S.; assistant Treasury
Secretary in 1949; and a World Bank director, 1949 through 1952, along
with Pilgrim Society member Eugene R. Black Jr. of Chase National
Bank. After reorganizing the New York Stock Exchange in 1971, the
inner core Pilgrim Society members placed him on boards including
United States Steel; Freeport Minerals Company; Scandinavian Securities
Corporation; Riggs National Bank; American Express; Caterpillar Tractor;
Dow Jones & Company; Eli Lilly & Company; General Foods; and Royal
Dutch Shell Petroleum. He became a trustee of Yale University. His
father was president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Saint Louis, 19361941,
and a trustee of Washington & Lee University. Yes, The Pilgrims
control the world�s money! Not Bilderberg! We will look at some
history and other matters establishing this reality. American Opinion,
October 1970, �Who Controls The Press,� by Gary Allen, page 22,
speaking of William Paley, then head of CBS Incorporated, said---

�Paley is a member of The Pilgrim Society, sometimes called the world�s
most secret organization, which has as its goal the reuniting of England
and America.�

That was William Paley of The Pilgrims (above 1901-1990). Completing
the thought, the goal is to reunite the two countries as a basis for world
government. After losing control of such immense land areas as India;
China; Burma; the American Colonies; South Africa and so forth, they
mean to covertly take it all back through a supranational world
government. On page 27 the article, Gary Allen commented---

�David Sarnoff is a member of the super-secret Pilgrim Society, whose
official logo is entwined American and British flags. This group, which is
dedicated to merging Britain and America, has a number of
internationalist members like Paley, Sarnoff, and John Schiff whose
ancestors were not British.�

Sarnoff was at that time, chairman of RCA (Radio Corporation of
America) and the National Broadcasting Company (NBC). The European
connections of the London branch amply represent old-line continental
wealth. In American Opinion, September 1970, page 15, Allen said---

�The mysterious Lord Thomson of Fleet (Roy Thomson of Toronto) has
added to his international publishing empire some fifty-six American
papers. Thomson is also owner of the London Times, traditional voice of
the British Establishment---where the Royal Institute for International
Affairs is controlled by the same people who control our C.F.R. Thomson
is a member of the elitist Pilgrim Society, which seeks to merge the
United States into the British Commonwealth as a base for World
Government. The major international banking firms on both sides of the
Atlantic are well represented in the Pilgrim Society, and recently made it
easy for Thomson to lay out $72 million for a dozen Busch-Moore
newspapers in America.�

Who controls the Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA) in
London and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in New York? The
Pilgrim Society, that�s who, and nobody but them. The proof is simple
enough, besides the fact that the same bunch was involved in founding
the three organizations. The board of directors and upper management
of the Council on Foreign Relations have ALWAYS been members of The
Pilgrims. We will do an examination of that item later. Before going
any farther be advised that this Society refuses to release current
membership lists. What do these highly placed individuals have to hide?
Why do they wish to conceal the fact that they are members of a specific
organization? Will it take a Congressional subpoena to pry a list out of
their grasping hands? Those in Congress who are members, and those
within their influence, which appear to be the majority, wish the cover-
up to continue. I received this reply, dated December 18, 1973, signed by
assistant secretary Mrs. E. M. Simpson---

�The Pilgrims of the United States is not a secret society. It is the senior,
Anglo-American society. There is no other information available.�

Those were her central remarks, and that�s where I first encountered
their logo (the crossed British and American flags Allen mentioned aren�t
the logo, they do accompany it at meetings.) Take a look and try to sense
the dreadful power the Society represents---

The eagle represents the United States, the lion represents Great Britain.
Hic Et Ubique, old Latin, means, �Here And Everywhere.� That�s a
reference to their holdings, which are worldwide; and to their influence,
which is virtually everywhere. They are the �powerful organized force of
universal scope.� Even Bilderberg has attendance lists which can be
accessed; the same for the Trilateral Commission and the Council on
Foreign Relations. But NOT The Pilgrims. It calls to memory a quotation
from �Proofs Of A Conspiracy� (1798) by Scotsman Professor John

�The Order will thus work silently, and securely; and though the
generous benefactors of the human race are thus deprived of the applause
of the world, they have the noble pleasure of seeing their work prosper in
their hand.�

much more at:


�There is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.�

This was President Woodrow Wilson�s description of The Pilgrims! No other organization remotely approximates such a description. We continue now making the acquaintance of The Pilgrims, New York and London, the two-branch secret Society that dominates world finance through central banks, large commercial and investment banks and multi-governmental banks; and has manipulated silver and gold prices. In the event you missed the introduction to the Society, I strongly urge you to read that first (December 2004, Archives). I am told the article drew some negative comments. I expected as much, since there is in all societies an element who cannot accept that anything takes places behind the scenes. To those trusting folks I say, disprove what I said or hold your peace. If you aren�t going to disprove it please don�t annoy the website operator. Prove that any facts or references were invented and I�ll retract all I said. The critic is defeated before he starts, the facts stand, I have seen them at great length and presented a fraction of them. I assure you the organization of which I am critical of is not going to issue any refutation, since it would bring into wider view the details presented. It can only function as long as no significant number of Americans know of its existence. It could not survive intense public pressure for Congressional investigation. Before we go any further allow me to present you with a quotation from Pilgrim Society member John Martin Cates Jr. who was based in London (Who�s Who, 1981, page 578)---

�I also believe strongly in international cooperation and the stark necessity of a one-world society without national borders.�



�Moore has the fastest financial mind in existence. He can take a complex financial problem and do it in his head without drawing a breath while talking.�

This was spoken by second-generation Pilgrim Society member Walter Bigelow Wriston, chairman of Citibank-Citicorp, 1970-1984, about Pilgrim Society member George Stevens Moore, his predecessor as chairman of the huge bank. The quotation appeared in Fortune, January 1976, page 123. At that time Citicorp had branches in 104 countries. Moore was a director of Credit Suisse White Weld, and of the Harriman-Rockefeller Union Pacific Railroad. Wriston was a director of General Electric; Rand Corporation; Chubb Corporation (insurance); United Meridian Corporation; Fremont Group; York International; ICOS Corporation; AEA Investors; Sequoia Ventures and others. Wriston�s father, who was president of Brown University from 1937-1955, was a trustee of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, 1943-1954, and president of the Pilgrim Society run Council on Foreign Relations, 1953-1964. I would have no definite way to establish membership of any of these three in The Pilgrims, save for the leaked 1969 list! Two of the biggest bankers on planet earth were important enough to hold membership in this organization, and it was too blasted secret for the public to know about! And we know how these megabankers detest metallic money, since they cannot create it!

There is far more to be detailed about The Pilgrims---London and New York, than can be done in 2 dozen lengthy articles. However it won�t take so long to examine the most relevant points. If you read the first two articles, you understand that The Pilgrim Society came about as an alliance of big monopolistic rich in the United States and Great Britain. The driving force for the creation of the Society appears to be the British Crown. If you saw �Braveheart� (1995) by Mel Gibson, you saw the King of England reaching out to powerful nobles to make secret alliances with them. England used to own the American Colonies. The fact is it has never given up a disgusting dream of bringing us back under Crown rule. The world is currently locked in a struggle between the forces of �created� money issued by central banks, and a movement to return to the use of true money---gold and silver. The Pilgrims surely own huge amounts of physical gold and in the case of Warren Buffet---very likely a member---physical silver, so that no matter which way the outcome goes, they expect to dominate.



Pilgrims Society:

Author: Jo�l van der Reijden

Note beforehand: Since this article first appeared knowledge about this group has greatly expanded. Therefore I suggest you also take a look at the introduction page and appendix B where the origins of this group and its influence is discussed in more detail. In past front page articles more information can be found on the templar, Rosicrucian, and Masonic influences within this group. I also suggest you take a look at this chart, which has been put together by looking at the individual biographies of the Pilgrims Society members.
Even today it's members consist of the wealthiest businessman and the most influential politicians. It was erected over a century ago and meets at least 2 or 3 times a year. Still, 99% of the world has never heard of it. We're talking about the Pilgrims Society. An aristocratic Anglo-American dining club who's members keep themselves informed by inviting politicians to make a speech. The primary purpose of this club is to keep the ties between the United States and Britain as strong as possible. The official reason was, and is, that the forefathers of most Americans from the Virginia and New York area emigrated from the British Isles, therefore they share a common heritage. They are blood brothers so to speak. Of course, the obvious reason was to form an unofficial alliance with the United States to improve the strained relations and to vastly increase the powers of the dwindling British empire. The heart of the British empire and the later British Commonwealth became the Pilgrims Society, it's philosophies dominated by the executives of the upcoming mega corporations, largely located in the City of London and the city of New York.

�The mysterious, super-elite Pilgrim Society.�

�The most illustrious world-wide personalities.�

�The most distinguished international organization in the world.�

�The Pilgrims Society remained hidden until relatively recent years, to identify the apex of power.�
(referenced towards end of document)

Plundering International Looter$ Gaining Riche$, Injuring Megamillion$ $ecretly = PILGRIMS! If this is your first read on this organization, I suggest you obtain the introductory background first by reading the December 2004 item in the Archives. (For the rest of you, take note---silver and silver mining will be mentioned around 50 times). If you have followed the series to date, I have other disturbing case material with which to inform you. There is a boatload of fascinating material I hope to acquaint you with. And you should be fiercely interested in this Society---the rich families behind central banking---because they are interested in you, to your great detriment! And they do not wish their identities known; else they�d release a membership list. A movie quote (�They Live� 1988)---

�We could be pets, we could be food, but all we really are is livestock!�

The Pilgrims could protest, if they chose to, that I class them as a secret society. Actually they don�t meet the criteria for that definition by every measure that exists. No elitist organization appears to meet that standard, but these things are a matter of relative basis. When not one person in 10,000 has ever heard of an organization that dominates their destiny, it�s secret. The Pilgrims do fulfill the definition of secret society by the most important test which is, as I say, they refuse to release a roster. Some will say, why should a private organization have to release a membership list? Do we demand the local Rotary Club or Lions Club to release members� names? The difference is one of degree. Since we�ve already seen that the President, Secretary of State, and Ambassador to Great Britain are always �honorary� members; and that this fact fails to appear in any known textbook on government or political science---this is sufficient to need to know who all the members are. These are far from ordinary people. They are those who can and do powerfully influence events at the highest levels.

Exactly with which globalist financiers, warmongers and international cartelists do our highest officials run with? Additionally, I have noted that over the decades, numerous Ambassadors to many different nations have been members; also Generals; Admirals; Senators; Congressmen; Treasury Secretaries; Federal Reserve officials and so forth. Since these men are in control (presently) of our national destiny, it is urgently necessary to know who they all are. As a few examples, if a list were accessed, names likely to be encountered would include representatives of the traditional big rich---Rockefeller; Mellon; Du Pont; Whitney; Vanderbilt; Harriman; Pyne; Pitcairn; Pew; Phipps; Pratt; Harkness; Aldrich; Weyerhaeuser; Duke; Reynolds; Cullman; Dorrance; Schiff; Folger; Field; Fisher; Flagler; Roosevelt; Guggenheim; Gould; McCormick; Berwind; Lehman; Stillman; Baker; Livingston; and others. Top executives and directors of Citigroup; JPMorganChase; BankAmerica; Bank of New York; Wells Fargo; Mellon Bank; American Express; Merrill Lynch; Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (oversees electronic exchange of shares); Goldman Sachs; Morgan Stanley; Lehman Brothers; Prudential Financial; Aetna; New York Life; IBM; Exxon Mobil; Chevron Texaco; Conoco Phillips; Schlumberger; Halliburton; Duke Energy; El Paso Corporation; Bechtel Corporation; Alcoa; Newmont Mining; Phelps-Dodge; Microsoft; General Electric; General Motors; Ford; Goodyear; Du Pont; Dow Chemical; Eastman Kodak; Union Pacific; Wal-Mart; Coca-Cola; Philip Morris; Procter & Gamble; Unilever Bestfoods; Berkshire Hathaway; Washington Post; New York Times; Tribune Company; Time Warner; Verizon Communications; Johnson & Johnson; Pfizer; Eli Lilly; Warner Lambert; Merck & Company; Bristol Myers Squibb; Astra Zeneca; Schering Plough; Glaxo Smith Kline; Pharmacia & Upjohn; United Technologies; Raytheon; Lockheed Martin; Boise Cascade; International Paper; Federal Reserve; Treasury Department; World Bank and very many others would be found represented in The Pilgrims.

More Charles Savoie writing at:


The Pilgrims Society is the organization which consistently recruits only very elitist members of society, many with nearly endless resumes. Le Cercle is more mixed, but all participants are intelligence insiders. The 1001 Club recruits the most influential businessmen from all over the world, but also some lower level WWF employees. The WWF is very tight-lipped about this club though, as you can see in the 1001 Club article on this website.
