Russell Simmons

The Illuminati Doesn't Exist

(I'm Rich, I Would Know)

EXCLUSIVE

020613_russell_simmons_launch
Mega-rich, ultra-successful record producer Russell Simmons says there's ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY no such thing as the Illuminati ... which is EXACTLY what someone in the Illuminati would say!!!!

Simmons -- if that's even his real name -- is connected to a whole bunch of people rumored to be in the super-secret society that controls the world ... including Jay-Z, Beyonce, Kanye and Oprah.

So when we asked if he could confirm or deny one of the alleged members ... or even acknowledge the group's existence at all ... it's almost like he protested a little too much, saying "Are you kidding me? I'm a grown f*cking man!"

Translation -- YES!!!!!

"a whole bunch of people rumored to be in the super-secret society that controls the world ... including Jay-Z, Beyonce, Kanye and Oprah." NOW I KNOW THIS HAS TO BE NOTHING MORE THAN BS! IF ANYONE THINKS KANYE WEST IS POWERFUL ENOUGH TO BE IN A SECRET SOCIETY WITH WORLD LEADERS THEN THEY NEED THEIR EFFIN HEAD EXAMINED! THE ONLY ONE LISTED ABOVE WHO IS EVEN POWERFUL ENOUGH TO BE IN THAT SOCIETY IS OPRAH!

Jay-Z, Beyonce and Oprah don't run anything. They are just used to distract and control the masses through what? Entertainment. The Rockerfellers, Rothschilds, Bush's, Kennedy's of the world RUN THE WORLD. Especially the United States. Jay, Bey, Rihanna and Russell are still just negr0es to the elite illuminati bloodlines.

I think it's funny that TMZ of all websites is asking this question. They should know already.

SoWhat    

Anyone that thinks someone like Beyonce or Simmons are part of the Illuminati are freaking stupid. These people have no power whatsoever and the money they have is chump change compared to the people in the Illuminati.

Jay Z and his minions play an indispensable role to the Illuminati: They provide the tools to keep black and brown Americans intellectually doped up on drugs, music, sports, pornography, profanity, etc. Any people who cannot think for themselves become willing, compliant tools to those in power. Imagine if black Americans were smart enough, alert enough to demand that changes be made re: jobs, street violence, etc. They held the power to define the last election. But because they spend every minute of every day calling themselves n!ggers, selling drugs, buying drugs, baring their asses to the world and doing ANYTHING else that Jay Z commands them to so, so they remain powerless drones. Z may not be at the top level of the Illuminati, but he knows how to make sure his own people stay at the very bottom of society.

Food for thought    

It's funny when BLACK(every person in this article) persons are incredibly successful it must be the illuminati, yet when whites or jews (who run the majority of the entertainment industry) amount leves of success they are never associated with cults or any evil groups. Tmz should be ashamed of themselves for posting this article. Harvey Levin is the illuminati!

If there were to be a secret ruling faction, I think they may be more concerned with people in power who could help them politically rather than toss out a few rap albums...As to being rich...Chris Rock states "Shaq is rich, the guy who signs his paycheck, is wealthy."
