What do history's most notorious despots have in common with many of the flag-waving, patriotic politicians of our day? Both groups rise to power through the exploitation of fear, which has become a societal plague. There have been widespread casualties. We need an antidote. Feardom offers its readers a much-needed immunization.
Although the formal membership in the [Council on Foreign Relations] is composed of close to 1500 of the most elite names in the worlds of government, labor, business, finance, communications, the foundations, and the academy — and despite the fact that it has staffed almost every key position of every administration since those of FDR — it is doubtful that one American in a thousand so much as recognizes the Council’s name, or that one in ten thousand can relate anything at all about its structure or purpose. (Gary Allen, via Quoty)
What is the Council on Foreign Relations? What influence does its members have on public policy? What is its origin? What is its purpose? What effect has it had on our country?
These are questions that very few Americans have an answer to. The organization receives little (if any) attention from mainstream media, and thus goes undetected as its members carry out their agenda (quite successfully I might add). Mr. Allen, author of None Dare Call It Conspiracy discussed the Council’s role and effect on American policy:
The policies promoted by the C.F.R. in the fields of defense and international relations become, with a regularity which defies the laws of chance, the official policies of the United States Government. As Liberal columnist Joseph Kraft, himself a member of the C.F.R., noted of the Council in the Harper’s article:
“It has been the seat of some basic government decisions, has set the context for many more, and has repeatedly served as a recruiting ground for ranking officials.” (Gary Allen, via Quoty)
How has the Council been involved in key government decisions? As cited above, members of the CFR have filled key positions in every presidential administration for the past fifty years. The list of members is quite extensive and features many prominent individuals. Notable as well are the presidential candidates who are members as well:
- Hillary Clinton
- Rudy Giuliani
- Barack Obama
- Fred Thompson
- Chris Dodd
- Mitt Romney
- John Edwards
- Joe Biden
- John McCain
- Bill Richardson
The notable exception: Ron Paul.
Given that so many power-wielding individuals are members of this organization, it is important that Americans understand what its objectives are: the end of sovereignty and so-called “isolationism”, and the promotion and implementation of a one-world government. A 1944 publication by the CFR serves as one of countless examples demonstrating the Council’s desire to abolish American sovereignty:
The sovereignty fetish is still so strong in the public mind, that there would appear to be little chance of winning popular assent to American membership in anything approaching a super-state organization. Much will depend on the kind of approach which is used in further popular education. (American Public Opinion and Postwar Security Commitments (New York: CFR, 1944), p. 4)
Lest the reader be inclined to believe that the CFR’s goals have “softened” or changed in recent decades, the following quotes by the current President of the CFR are offered to show that they are still on course:
…states must be prepared to cede some sovereignty to world bodies if the international system is to function.
Globalisation thus implies that sovereignty is not only becoming weaker in reality, but that it needs to become weaker. States would be wise to weaken sovereignty in order to protect themselves, because they cannot insulate themselves from what goes on elsewhere. Sovereignty is no longer a sanctuary. (Richard N. Haass, “Sovereignty and Globalisation”, February 17, 2006)
Some have been even more blunt in stating their desires:
We shall have world government whether or not you like it, by conquest or consent. (CFR member James Warburg, via Quoty)
There are numerous facts documenting the pervasive influence on policy—both foreign and domestic—by this organization. Those who spurn this simple truth, deciding to live in the relative comfort and apathy that the Matrix provides them, will one day wonder how we arrived at world government without any mention in the media or public outcry.
It’s imperative that we each take the red pill and refuse to remain in ignorance. We must shun any political elitist claiming membership in this organization, for all those subscribed are in opposition to the Constitution and American republicanism. We must reject any secretive, globalist agenda that circumvents public representation and the will of “We the People”.
Rest assured, any CFR member elected to be our President will stack his/her cabinet with other CFR members who will think and act likewise, slowly sidestepping the Constitution and eroding our national sovereignty.
Do you wish to prevent such an occurrence? Then vote for Ron Paul, the only champion of the Constitution vying for the presidential office.
