The idea that behind the global chaos that gave rise to Obamas popularity was a secret network, a transnational hand directing the course of civilization. Yet no account of history including recent times is complete or even sincere without at least acknowledging the behind-the-scenes masters who manipulate international policy, banking and finance, securities and exchange, trade, commodities, and energy resources. Numerous works including scholarly ones have connected the dots between this ruling superclass and the integration of policy handed down to governing bodies of nation-states and supra-national organizations.
The Economist Newspaper in April 2008 pointed to research by academic David Rothkopf, whose book, Superclass: The Global Power Elite and the World They Are Making documented how only a few thousand people worldwide actually dictate the majority of policies operating at a global scale. The Economist described this comparatively small number of elites as being groomed in world-spanning institutions [who] meet at global events such as the World Economic Forum at Davos and the Trilateral Commission or the Bilderberg meetings or the Bohemian Grove seminars that take place every July in California. 
Long time radio host and author of Brotherhood of Darkness, Stanley Monteith says such persons are part of an Occult Hierarchy that rules the world and directs the course of human events. The movement is led by powerful men who reject Christianity, embrace the dark side, and are dedicated to the formation of a world government and a world religion, he writes. They control the government, the media many corporations, and both [US] political parties. 
Before his death, it was prominent American political scientist Samuel P. Huntington who brought the uber-echelon behind the push for global government up from conspiracy theory to academic acceptability when he established that they have little need for national loyalty, view national boundaries as obstacles that thankfully are vanishing, and see national governments as residues from the past whose only useful function is to facilitate the elites global operations. 
According to experts, international affairs, foreign and domestic politics and taxpayer funded investment economics are being largely decided by a privileged cadre of families who are dedicated to a New World Order and One World Government.
The CFR, the Trilateral Commission, Bohemians, Masons, the Bilderbergers and other Illuminatus subgroups, my original intention included several chapters on the memberships past and present of the largely unknown powers working behind public affairs. In the end I determined that enough of this type material is already available to the public and that this work would be better served in raising awareness beyond the machinations of financiers and occult ideologues who direct global institutions, by showing that behind their matrix of illusion—which most citizens perceive as reality—is an arena of evil supernaturalism under which these human conduits are willingly organized.
The objectives of the secret orders and the very real forces they serve is seldom perceived by citizens of democratic societies who view national officials as ruling their countries and representing their interests. Yet according to sacred texts, not only does an active collaboration exist between unregenerate social architects and fallen angels, but politicians in particular are vulnerable to principalities and powers. According to well-known exorcist Gabriele Amorth who has performed over 70,000 official exorcisms, Evil exists in politics, quite often in fact.
The devil loves to take over those who hold political office.  As a result, it is not difficult to see how fleshy gloves such as US Presidents may be unaware of their role as chess pieces on a terrestrial game board sliding in and out of position as they are moved by the god of this world toward the phantasmogoric end game (see 2 Cor. 4:4). If researchers like Dr. Monteith are correct and world governments are to this day influenced by such dark angelic powers, the elite who head the current push to establish a New World Order are directly connected with an antichrist system whether they know it or not. With vivid testimony to this, Satan offered to Jesus all the power and glory of the kingdoms of this world. He said, All this power [control] will I give thee, and the glory of them [earthly cities]: for that is delivered unto me: and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine (Luke 4:6-7)
