CITY OF LONDON

"When people hear of 'The Crown' they automatically think of the King or Queen [of England]; when they hear of 'London' or 'The City' they instantly think of the capital of England in which the monarch has his or her official residence.
... When we speak of 'The City' we are in fact referring to a privately owned Corporation - or Sovereign State - occupying an irregular rectangle of 677 acres and located right in the heart of the 610 square mile 'Greater London' area.
... The 'Crown' is a committee of twelve to fourteen men who rule the independent sovereign state known as London or 'The City.' 'The City' is not part of England. It is not subject to the Sovereign. It is not under the rule of the British parliament. Like the Vatican in Rome, it is a separate, independent state. It is the Vatican of the commercial world.
The City, which is often called "the wealthiest square mile on earth, is ruled over by a Lord Mayor. Here are grouped together Britain's great financial and commercial institutions: Wealthy banks, dominated by the privately-owned (Rothschild controlled) Bank of England."

Des Griffin in his book "Descent Into Slavery?"

 

"The merchant bankers of London had already at hand in 1810-1850 the Stock Exchange, the Bank of England, and the London money market... In time they brought into their financial network the provincial banking centers, organized as commercial banks and savings banks, as well as insurance companies, to form all of these into a single financial system on an international scale which manipulated the quantity and flow of money so that they were able to influence, if not control, governments on one side and industries on the other."

Carroll Quigley in his book "Tragedy and Hope"

 

"In the heart of London, England, the financial district is known as 'The City,' or the 'Square Mile.' All major British banks have their main offices here, along with branch offices for 385 foreign banks, including 70 from the United States... It is virtually the financial hub of the world."


David Allen Rivera in his book "Final Warning: A History of the New World Order"

 

"England, Scotland, Wales, and, especially, Northern Ireland, are today little more than slave plantations and social engineering laboratories, serving the needs of ...the City of London.
European dynastic families constitute a financial oligarchy; they are the power behind the Windsor throne [Britain]. They view themselves as the heirs to the Venetian oligarchy, which infiltrated and subverted England from the period 1509-1715, and established a new, more virulent, Anglo-Dutch-Swiss strain of the oligarchic system of imperial Babylon, Persia, Rome, and Byzantium.
The City of London dominates the world's speculative markets. A tightly interlocking group of corporations, involved in raw materials extraction, finance, insurance, transportation, and food production, controls the lion's share of the world market, and exerts virtual ``choke point'' control over world industry."

historian Jeffrey Steinberg

 

"Both E. C. Knuth, in his book 'Empire of the City', and Des Griffin, in his book 'Descent into Slavery', stated their belief that 'The City' is actually a sovereign state (much like the Vatican), and that since the establishment of the privately owned Bank of England in 1694, 'The City' has actually become the last word in the country's national affairs, with Prime Minister, Cabinet, and Parliament becoming only a front for the real power. According to Knuth, when the Queen enters 'The City,' she is subservient to the Lord Mayor (under him, is a committee of 12-14 men, known as 'The Crown'), because this privately-owned corporation is not subject to the Queen, nor to Parliament."

David Allen Rivera in his book "Final Warning: A History of the New World Order"

 

"England is a financial oligarchy run by the "Crown" which refers to the "City of London" not the Queen. The City of London is run by the Bank of England, a private corporation. The square-mile-large City is a sovereign state located in the heart of greater London."

Henry Makow, 2004

 

"With the exception of a few thousand very powerful people, the entire world's population, all seven billion of us, are trapped ... trapped into a criminal debt creating banking 'system' that has taken hundreds of years to perfect and to come to fruition. This 'system' results in enslavement and servitude. It creates dreadful unhappiness amongst ordinary decent people and causes wars, debt, starvation, pollution and environmental destruction. It feeds on greed, fear and division. It forces people onto the corporate treadmills of mass mindless production and mass mindless consumption. It uses lies, deception, intimidation and entrapment at all times. It is a system that is so clever and so cunning that most of the world is completely oblivious to its existence. It is a system that allows a few winners at the expense of a huge number of losers. It is a system that considers itself to be unbeatable and indestructible and is now so arrogant that it believes it can control everything and everyone on its terms. It is a system where psychopaths and sociopaths can flourish. And without question the center of this system, the heart of this global corporate beast is the innocent sounding Square Mile known as the City of London."

Justin Walker

 

"The City of London caters for those above the law, it operates on the basis of bypassing democratic society as a whole. This has come about over time where an extraordinary 'gentlemens agreement' has stood the test of time. The head of state and his/her governments have the need of large loans for wars and the like, "The City", in exchange for such commodity has extracted certain privileges the rest of the population do not enjoy. The end result over the centuries is that it now has its own financial jurisdiction to do pretty much as it pleases.
... The City of London has its own private funding and will 'buy-off' any attempt to erode its powers; any scrutiny of its financial affairs are put beyond external inspection or audit."

Graham Vanbergen

 

"The City of London is the financial and commercial heart of Britain. It is often referred to as "The City" or "The Square Mile", and is at the heart of the world's financial markets. The City is not a part of England, but is a sovereign financial state. The local authority for the City is the City of London Corporation. The City is the historical core of London. and today is the business and financial center of Europe. This area contains over 255 foreign banks, more than any other financial center. It is recognized as the richest square mile in the world."

"The CIty of London" from www.justlondon.org

 

"London's inner city is a privately owned corporation or city state, located right in the middle of greater London. It became a sovereign state in 1694 when King William III of Orange privatised & turned the Bank of England over to the bankers. Today, the City State of London is the world's financial power centre & the wealthiest square mile on the face of the Earth. It houses the Rothschild controlled Bank of England, Lloyds of London, the London stock exchange, all British banks, the branch offices of 385 foreign banks & 70 US banks. It has its own courts, its own laws, its own flag & its own police force. It is not part of greater London, or England, or the British Commonwealth & pays no taxes. The City State of London houses Fleet Street's newspaper & publishing monopolies. It is also the headquarters for world wide English Freemasonry & headquarters for the world wide money cartel known as The Crown.
Contrary to popular belief, The Crown is not the Royal Family or the British Monarch. The Crown is the private corporate City State of London. It has a council of 12 members who rule the corporation under a mayor, called the Lord Mayor. The Lord mayor & his 12 member council serves as proxies or representatives who sit-in for 13 of the worlds wealthiest, most powerful banking families, including the Rothschild family, the Warburg family, the Oppenheimer family & the Schiff family. These families and their descendants run the Crown Corporation of London.
The Crown Corporation holds the title to world wide Crown land in Crown colonies like Canada, Australia & New Zealand. British parliament & the British prime minister serve as a public front for the hidden power of these ruling crown families."

The Hidden Empire, http://lightworkersxm.wordpress.com/, August 4, 2012

 

"At the last census, London's population stood at just 7,325, its employees stand at 414,600, nearly 40 per cent of them in financial services. Nearly 17,000 businesses are registered there, 2,700 are finance and insurance based and just over 45 per cent are foreign owned entities."

Graham Vanbergen, 2016

 

"In 1694, King William III of the House of Orange privatized the Bank of England, established the City of London, and turned control of England's money over to an elite group of international bankers. Like Vatican City, the City of London (not to be confused with Greater London) is a privately owned corporation operating under its own flag, with its own constitution and free from the legal constraints that govern the rest of us. This action paved the way for a private cartel of international bankers to embark on a plan of implementing world governance."

"How the City of London Controls World Power" - thedailybell.com

 

"In 1991 the [Bank of England] directors decided to work out more explicitly what the bank is for, and they came up with three main aims. Two were the usual central bankers' goals: to protect the currency and to keep the financial system stable. The third is to ensure the effectiveness of the United Kingdom's financial services and advance a financial system which enhances the international competitive position of the City of London and other UK financial centres. In other words, to protect and promote the City as an offshore centre."

Nicholas Shaxson in his book "Treasure Islands: Tax Havens and the Men Who Stole the World"

 

"The City of London, with its own borders and police force, sits within the Isles of Britain as an international hub, the tax haven of all tax havens. The banks use offshore business organisations to escape regulation and the grip these organisations have over an ever weakened and corrupt political class is utterly astounding. The Conservative party is literally bankrolled by bankers and hedge funds. Half of the wealthiest hedge fund managers in the land pay millions each year to the Tories. This is neoliberalism out of control. "

Graham Vanbergen

 

"Margaret Thatcher invented the idea that the City of London would become financial dealers for oligarchs and oil people from around the world."

Nicholas Shaxson in his book "Treasure Islands: Tax Havens and the Men Who Stole the World"

 

"The City of London now stands as money launderer of the world, the capital of global crime. It is the heart and engine of the offshore haven, with Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man its european collection centres, the caribbean and others hoovering up billions of dollars from all over the globe... It has a dark and shadowy client list; terrorists, drug barons, arms dealers, politicians, corporations and companies, millionaires, billionaires - most with something to hide."

Graham Vanbergen

 

"The City of London dominates the world's speculative markets. A tightly interlocking group of corporations, involved in raw materials extraction, finance, insurance, transportation, and food production, controls the lion's share of the world market, and exerts virtual ``choke point'' control over world industry."

Jeffrey Steinberg, 2008

 

"British Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies make up around 25 per cent of the world's tax havens.
... Tax havens include Anguilla, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Montserrat and the Turks and Caicos Islands to name just a few and each is inextricably linked to the City of London's crime offices.
The consequence of its operations is that money laundering is now at such levels and so widespread that the authorities have admitted defeat in its battle of attrition by stating openly it has been completely overwhelmed and lost control."

CLUB OF ROME

"Club of Rome is a conspiratorial umbrella organization, a marriage between Anglo-American financiers and the old Black Nobility families of Europe, particularly the so-called "nobility" of London, Venice and Genoa. The key to the successful control of the world is their ability to create and manage savage economic recessions and eventual depressions.

John Coleman in his book "The Committee of 300"

 

"The Club of Rome (COR) was established with a membership of 75 prominent scientists, industrialists, and economists from 25 countries. Along with the Bilderbergers, it has become one of the most important foreign policy arms of the Roundtable group."

David Allen Rivera in is book "Final Warning: A History of the New World Order"

 

"There is no other viable alternative to the future survival of civilization than a new global community under a common leadership."

Club of Rome website

 

"The Club of Rome is a premiere think tank composed of approximately 100 members including leading scientists, philosophers, political advisors and many others who lurk in the shadows of power."

Brent Jessop, Global Research, 2008

 

"The solution of these crises can be developed only in a global context with full and explicit recognition of the emerging world system and on a long-term basis. This would necessitate, among other changes, a new world economic order and a global resources allocation system."

from a Club of Rome book called "Mankind at the Turning Point"

 

"The global warming myth is an extension of The Club of Rome's activities."

Brent Jessop, Global Research, 2008

 

"The Club of Rome will encourage the creation of a world forum where statesmen, policy-makers, and scientists can discuss the dangers and hopes for the future global system without the constraints of formal intergovernmental negotiation."

The Club of Rome book "The Limits to Growth", 1972

 

"On September 17, 1973, The Club of Rome released a Report called the "Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System"." It revealed the Club's goal of dividing the world into ten political/economic regions, which would unite the entire world under a single form of government. These regions are North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Japan, Rest of Developed World, Latin America, Middle East, Rest of Africa, South and Southeast Asia, and China."

David Allen Rivera in his book "Final Warning"

 

"The international bankers' Club of Rome arm advocated depopulation of the world's undesirable poor."

Dean Henderson in his book "Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf"

 

"The Club of Rome has indicated that genocide should be used to eliminate people who they refer to as 'useless eaters."

David Allen Rivera in his book "Final Warning"

 

CLUB OF THE ISLES

"Club of the Isles is a European cartel - centered within the City of London and headed by the House of Windsor - which controls every aspect of the global economy -- banks, insurance and pharmaceutical companies, raw materials, transportation, factories, major retail groups, the stock and commodities markets, politicians and governments, media, intelligence agencies, drugs and organized crime."

"The Windsors' Global Food Cartel: Instrument for Starvation" an article from Executive Intelligence Review, 1995

 

"The Club of the Isles is a House of Windsor-led Anglo-Dutch-Swiss cartel. The cartel's Big Six grain trading companies own and control 95% of America's wheat exports, 95% of its corn exports, 90% of its oats exports, and 80% of its sorghum exports. A few smaller companies, almost all in the grain cartel's orbit, control the remaining market share. The grain companies' control over the American grain market is absolute."

Richard Freeman, Executive Intelligence Review, 1995

 

"The Club of the Isles, since the era of the Opium Wars against China, has been the leading sponsor and controller of global organized crime."

Jeffrey Steinberg, 2008

 

"Club of the Isles is a vast network of private financial interests, controlled by the leading aristocratic and royal families of Europe. It is modeled on the 17th-century British and Dutch East India Company models.
The Rothschild family has been at the financial heart of the Club of the Isles.
The Club of the Isles is centered in the City of London."

William Engdahl , Executive Intelligence Review, 1997

 

"The "Club of the Isles" is an informal association of predominantly European-based royal households including the Queen [of England]. The Club of the Isles commands an estimated $10 trillion in assets. It lords over such corporate giants as Royal Dutch Shell, Imperial Chemical Industries, Lloyds of London, Unilever, Lonrho, Rio Tinto Zinc, and Anglo American DeBeers. It dominates the world supply of petroleum, gold, diamonds, and many other vital raw materials; and deploys these assets at the disposal of its geopolitical agenda.
Its goal: to reduce the human population from its current level to below one billion people within the next two to three generations; to literally ``cull the human herd'' in the interest of retaining their own global power and the feudal system upon which that power is based."

Henry Makow, 2004

 

"Ten to twelve pivotal companies, assisted by another three dozen, run the world's food supply. They are the key components of the Anglo-Dutch-Swiss food cartel, which is grouped around Britain's House of Windsor. Led by the six leading grain companies-Cargill, Continental, Louis Dreyfus, Bunge and Born, André, and Archer Daniels Midland/Töpfer - the Club of the Isles - a House of Windsor-led oligarchy, has complete domination over world cereals and grains supplies, from wheat to corn and oats, from barley to sorghum and rye. But it also controls meat, dairy, edible oils and fats, fruits and vegetables, sugar, and all forms of spices."

Richard Freeman, Executive Intelligence Review, 1995

 

"A collection of families, numbering no more than 3,000-5,000 people, live and work in and around the City of London... These families constitute a financier oligarchy; they are the power behind the Windsor throne. Among their own ranks, these financier oligarchs refer to themselves as the Club of the Isles.
... The Club of the Isles, under the direction of the British monarchy, draws in resources and personalities from the Netherlands, Switzerland, France, Germany, and Italy, and orchestrates the actions of a caste of Anglophilic Americans, typified by Henry Kissinger and former President George HW Bush."

Jeffrey Steinberg, 2008

 

"The Anglo-Dutch-Swiss food cartel - Club of the Isles - grain cartel companies are run by the same families that have run them for centuries. The inter-married MacMillan and Cargill families run Cargill; the Fribourg family runs Continental; the Louis Dreyfus family runs Louis Dreyfus; the André family runs André; and the Hirsch and Born families run Bunge and Born."

Richard Freeman, Executive Intelligence Review, 1995

 

"The Club of the Isles provides capital for George Soros' Quantum Fund NV - which made substantial financial gains in 1998-99 following the collapse of currencies of Thailand, Indonesia and Russia. Soros was a major shareholder at George W. Bush's Harken Energy. The Club of Isles is led by the Rothschilds and includes Queen Elizabeth II and other wealthy European aristocrats and Nobility."

Dean Henderson in his book "Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf"

 

"Club of the Isles is a European cartel - centered within the City of London and headed by the House of Windsor - which controls every aspect of the global economy -- banks, insurance and pharmaceutical companies, raw materials, transportation, factories, major retail groups, the stock and commodities markets, politicians and governments, media, intelligence agencies, drugs and organized crime."

"The Windsors' Global Food Cartel: Instrument for Starvation" an article from Executive Intelligence Review, 1995


 
"You will not read about the Club of the Isles in any textbook or popular magazine. It is unincorporated and it has no membership lists. Yet, as an informal association of predominantly European-based royal households and princely families, the Club of the Isles commands an estimated $10 trillion in assets. It lords over such corporate giants as Royal Dutch Shell, Imperial Chemical Industries, Lloyds of London, Unilever, Lonrho, Rio Tinto Zinc, and Anglo American DeBeers. It dominates the world supply of petroleum, gold, diamonds, and many other vital raw materials; and deploys these assets not merely in the pursuit of wealth, but as resources at the disposal of its geopolitical agenda. Its goal: to reduce the human population from its current level of over 5 billion people to below 1 billion people within the next two to three generations in the interest of retaining their own global power and the feudal system upon which that power is based.
"

"The Coming Fall of the House of Windsor" an article from The New Federalist newspaper, 1994

 

"The Club of the Isles - a House of Windsor-led oligarchy - has developed four regions to be the principal exporters of almost every type of food; the oligarchy has historically acquired top-down control over the food chain in these regions. These four regions are: the United States; the European Union, particularly France and Germany; the British Commonwealth nations of Australia, Canada, the Republic of South Africa, and New Zealand; and Argentina and Brazil in Ibero-America. Through the centuries, the oligarchy has taken control of these regions' markets, and thus over the world food supply. These four regions have a population of, at most, 900 million people, or 15% of the world's population. The rest of the world, with 85% of the population-4.7 billion people-is dependent on the food exports from those regions."

Richard Freeman, Executive Intelligence Review, 1995

 

"The Rothschild's are founding members of the exclusive $10 trillion Club of the Isles - which controls corporate giants Royal Dutch Shell, Imperial Chemical Industries, Lloyds of London, Unilever, Barclays, Lonrho, Rio Tinto Zinc, BHP Billiton and Anglo American DeBeers. It dominates the world supply of petroleum, gold, diamonds, and many other vital raw materials."

Dean Henderson in his book "Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf"

 

"Club of the Isles is an immensely influencial network of institutions and companies controlled by the British House of Windsor and the Black Nobility European dynastic families. It is a web of interlocking directorships which hold independent companies in a network of common control and common agenda.

COLOR REVOLUTIONS
COUPS/REGIME CHANGE

 

"Behind the veil of legitimacy and humanitarian concerns can be found the same powerful people and organizations such as the Open Society Institute of George Soros, the Ford Foundation, the United States Institute of Peace, the National Endowment for Democracy and many more, financing and using a maze of well known NGO's such as Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, the International Crisis Group, etc., as well as more obscure entities.
With the help of these various groups it is possible not only to shape but to create the news, the agenda and public opinion to further aims which are, in short, the control of the world, its natural resources and the furtherance of the uniform ideal of a perfect world polity made in America."

Gilles d'Aymery, 2001

 

"In the year 2000, a strange new political phenomenon emerged' Belgrade, the capital of Serbia in the former Yugoslavia... On the surface, it seemed to be a spontaneous and genuine political 'movement.' In reality, it was the product of techniques that had been under study and development in the US for decades.
... In Belgrade several specific organizations were key players: the National Endowment for Democracy and two of its offshoots, the International Republican Institute, tied to the Republican party, and the National Democratic Institute, tied to the Democrats. While claiming to be private Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), they were, in fact, financed by the US Congress and State Department. Armed with millions in US taxpayer dollars, they were moved into place to create a synthetic movement for 'non-violent change."

F. William Engdahl in his book "Full Spectrum Dominance"

 

"Through slick Madison Avenue marketing techniques and careful study of genuine protest movements, the US Government had perfected techniques for 'democratically' getting rid of any opponent, while convincing the world they were brought down by spontaneous outbursts for freedom.
The Serbian Otpor! revolution had been founded, guided and financed covertly by the US Government via select NGOs."

F. William Engdahl in his book "Full Spectrum Dominance"

 

"The U.S. has long been involved in supporting 'freedom movements' throughout this region [Central Asia] that have been attempting to replace Russian influence with U.S. corporate control. The CIA, National Endowment for Democracy and Freedom House have been key funders and supporters of placing politicians in power throughout Central Asia that would play ball with 'our side'. None of this is about the good guys versus the bad guys. It is power bloc politics. Big money is at stake. Both parties share a bi-partisan history and agenda of advancing corporate interests in this part of the world."

Bruce Gagnon, coordinator of the Global Network against Weapons and Nuclear Power,, 2008

 

COMMITTEE OF 300

"The Committee of 300 is an "aristocracy" claiming ownership of the U.S. Federal Reserve banking system, and globally, insurance companies, corporations, foundations, and communications networks. It has front organizations, including the Royal Institute for International Affairs (Chatham House), the Club of Rome, NATO, U.N., the Black Nobility, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and affiliated organizations, think tanks and research institutions, and the military establishment.
The Committee of 300 is the ultimate secret society made up of an untouchable ruling class, which includes the Queen of the United Kingdom (Elizabeth II), the Queen of the Netherlands, the Queen of Denmark and the royal families of Europe. These aristocrats decided at the death of Queen Victoria, the matriarch of the Venetian Black Guelphs that, in order to gain world-wide control, it would be necessary for its aristocratic members to "go into business" with the non-aristocratic but extremely powerful leaders of corporate business.
... Some notable members of the Committee of 300 include: The British royal family, Dutch royal family, House of Hapsburg, House of Orange, Duke of Alba, Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh, Lord Carrington, Lord Halifax, Lord Alfred Milner, John Jacob and Waldorf of the Astor Illuminati bloodline, Winston Churchill, Cecil Rhodes, Queen Elizabeth II, Queen Juliana, Queen Beatrix, Queen Magreta, King Haakon of Norway, Colonel Mandel House, Aldous Huxley, John Forbes, Averill Harriman, William and McGeorge Bundy, George Bush, Prescott Bush, Henry Kissinger, J.P. Morgan, Maurice Strong, David Rockefeller, David and Evelyn Rothschild, Paul, Max and Felix Warburg, Ormsby and Al Gore, Bertrand Russell, Sir Earnest and Harry of the Oppenheimer Illuminati bloodline, Warren Buffet, Giuseppe Mazzini, Sir William Hesse, George Schultz, H.G. Wells, and Ted Turner."

"The Committee of 300: A Brief History of World Power:
Venetian Black Nobility - Roots of Today's Ruling Oligarchy" an article by Dr. John Coleman

 

"Committee of 300 front organizations, include the Royal Institute for International Affairs (Chatham House), the Club of Rome, NATO, U.N., the Black Nobility, the Tavistock Institute, CFR and all its affiliated organizations, the think tanks and research institutions controlled by Stanford and the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations and last, but certainly not least, the military establishment."

John Coleman, 2012



"In 1991 President George Herbert Walker Bush was ordered by Margaret Thatcher on behalf of the "300"[Committee of 300] to take a belligerent stance against Iraq. Within two weeks, not only in the United States, but in almost the entire world, public opinion was turned against Iraq and Saddam Hussein.
... The Club of Rome reported to the Committee of 300, at whose head sits the Queen of England. Her Majesty rules over a vast network of closely-linked corporations who pay no taxes, and are answerable to no one; who fund their research institutions through foundations whose joint activities have almost total control over our daily lives.
... These linked institutions and their leading personnel form an upper-level parallel government that controls the lives of every American, whether they know it or not. Together, the interlocking corporations, insurance companies, banks, finance corporations, the mega-oil companies, newspapers, magazines, radio and television broadcasting companies they make up a vast apparatus that sits astride the United States and the world. There is not a politician in Washington, D.C. who is not somehow beholden to it."

John Coleman in his book "The Committee of 300"

 

"Banking, while not its mainstay [Committee of 300], it is of vital importance, especially following the burgeoning drug trade that began in 1997, for which its banks act as clearing houses and money launderers of billions of dollars derived from drug money. The main "big name banks" are:

· The Bank of England
· The Federal Reserve Banks
· Bank of International Settlements
· The World Bank
· The Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank
· American Express

American Express Bank Travelers checks are a convenient method of recycling drug dollars. Each of these banks is affiliated with and/or controls hundreds of thousands of large and small banks throughout the world. Banks large and small in the thousands are in the Committee of 300 networking cycle."

There is not a politician in Washington, D.C. who is not somehow beholden to it."

John Coleman in his book "The Committee of 300: The Conspirator's Hierarchy"

 

"To the oligarches and plutocrats of the Committee of 300, drugs have a two-fold purpose, firstly to bring in colossal sums of money and secondly, to eventually turn a major part of the population into mindless drug zombies who will be easier to control than people who don't need drugs. Punishment for rebellion will mean withholding of supplies of heroin, cocaine, marijuana, etc. For this it is necessary to legalize drugs so that a monopoly system, which has been readied for introduction once severe economic conditions cause drug usage to proliferate as hundreds of thousands of permanently jobless workers turn to drugs for solace.
In one of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) top secret papers, the scenario is laid out as follows: 'Having been failed by Christianity, and with unemployment on every hand, those who have been without jobs for five years or more will turn away from the church and seek solace in drugs. That is when full control of the drug trade must be completed in order that the governments of all countries who are under our jurisdiction will have a monopoly which we will control through supply.... Drug bars will take care of the unruly and the discontent, would be revolutionaries will be turned into harmless addicts with no will of their own'."

John Coleman in his book "Conspirators' Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300"

 

"By the early 1930's, the British Crown had a stranglehold on the biggest supplies of gold and diamonds ever found in the world. Now, the Committee of 300 had at its disposal both the vast fortune coming from the drug trade and the equally vast fortune of the minieral and metal wealth of South Africa. Financial control of the world was complete."

John Coleman in his book "Conspirators' Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300"

 

COMMUNISM

"If you wanted a national monopoly, you must control a national socialist government. If you want a worldwide monopoly, you must control a world socialist government. That is what the game is all about. "Communism" is not a movement of the downtrodden masses but is a movement created, manipulated and used by power-seeking billionaires in order to gain control over the world ... first by establishing socialist governments in the various nations and then consolidating them all through a "Great Merger," into an all-powerful world, socialist super-state."

Gary Allen in his book "None Dare Call It Conspiracy"

 

"The myth of monolithic Communism - that all activities of people everywhere who call themselves Communists or whom J. Edgar Hoover calls Communists are planned and controlled in the Kremlin - is essential to the ideology of the national security bureaucracy. Without it the President and his advisers would have a harder time identifying the enemy. They certainly could not find opponents worthy of the 'defense' efforts of the mightiest military power in the history of the world."

Richard Barnet

 

"Third World elites dread socialism the way the rest of us might dread poverty and hunger. So, when push comes to shove, the wealthy classes of Third World countries, with a great deal of help from the corporate-military-political elites in our country, will use fascism to preserve capitalism while claiming they are saving democracy from communism."

Michael Parenti in his book "Dirty Truths"

 

"The Soviet Union and something called communism per se had not been the object of Washington's global attacks. There had never been an International Communist Conspiracy. The enemy was, and remains, any government or movement, or even individual, that stands in the way of the expansion of the American Empire; by whatever name the US gives to the enemy-communist, rogue state, drug trafficker, terrorist."

William Blum in his book "Killing Hope"

 

"A clique of American financiers not only helped establish Communism in Russia, but has striven mightily ever since to keep it alive. Ever since 1918 this clique has been engaged in transferring money and, probably more important, technical information, to the Soviet Union... Virtually everything the Soviets possess has been acquired from the West. It is not much of an exaggeration to say that the U.S.S.R. was made in the U.S.A.."

Gary Allen in his book "None Dare Call It Conspiracy"

 

"In the Bolshevik Revolution we have some of the world's richest and most powerful men financing a movement which claims its very existence is based on the concept of stripping of their wealth, men like the Rothschids, Rockefellers, Schiffs, Warburgs, Morgans, Harrimans, and Milners. But obviously these men have no fear of international Communism. It is only logical to assume that if they financed it and do not fear it, it must be because they control it."

Gary Allen in his book "None Dare Call It Conspiracy

 

"Communism and socialism are themselves forms of monopoly. The only difference is that in this case, the monopoly is operated by the government. But what if an international banker, through loans to the state, manipulation of a central bank, campaign contributions, or bribes, is able to achieve dominion over a government? In that case, he would find socialism welcome, for it would serve him as an instrument to control society."

James Perloff in his book "The Shadows of Power: The Council on Foreign Relations and the American Decline"

 

"Without communism - once monolithic and on the march - our state lacks a Wizard of Oz to terrify all the people all the time. So the state looks inward, at the true enemy, who turns out to be-who else? the people of the United States"

Gore Vidal in his book "Dreaming War"

 

"Communism is the ultimate monopoly, not only controlling the government, the monetary system and all property, but also a monopoly which, like the corporations it emulates, is self-perpetuating and eternal."

Eustace C. Mullins in his book "The Rockefeller Syndicate"

 

"Communism is an enormously serviceable tool for achieving morally dubious goals under a morally acceptable cover. It is not acceptable to destabilize a country, overthrow its democratically elected government, and institute a reign of terror in order to lower taxes and wages for one's own multinational firms. It is necessary to put forward a higher moral imperative [fighting communism]."

Edward S. Herman

 

"The so-called demise of Communism is a Great Deception, having been stage managed for the transition to world government."

G. Edward Griffin in his book "The Creature from Jekyll Island: a second look at the Federal Reserve"

 

"If one understands the socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead, it becomes logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs.
Communism, or more accurately socialism, its not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite."

author Gary Allen from the documentary "The Money Masters: How Banks Create the World's Money"

 

"In general, the Reagan administration tried to propagate the notion that communism was the main threat to democracy in Latin America and that therefore fighting communism was equivalent to promoting democracy. In reality, however, the main obstacles to democracy in Latin America have historically been a variety of structural domestic factors such as the extreme concentration of economic and political power in the hands of undemocratic elites, the sociopolitical marginalization of whole classes of citizens, and the lack of any underlying national consensus on basic democratic values."

Thomas Carothers in his book "In the Name of Democracy - U.S. Policy Toward Latin America in the Reagan Years"

 

"There is no such thing as a bad system of government. Not even Communism. It is the men who execute it who make it good or bad.
... We consider capitalism as the exploitation of man by capital and Communism the exploitation of the individual by the state."

Juan Peron, dictator of Argentina,1968

 

"Among Latin American elites, a peasant asking for a higher wage or a priest helping organize a peasant cooperative is a communist. And someone going so far as to suggest land reform or a more equitable tax system is a communist fanatic. There is no word or act suggesting the desirability of elite generosity toward the poor, or the need for education, organization or material advance for the majority, that has not been branded communistic in Latin America in recent decades. Since communism is the enemy and peasants trying to improve themselves, priests with the slightest humanistic proclivity, and naturally anyone seriously challenging the status quo, are communists, they are also, by definition, enemies."

Edward S. Herman

"The educated, urbane men of the State Department, the CIA, and the United Fruit Company, the pipe-smoking men of Princeton, Harvard, and Wall Street, decided that the illiterate peasants of Guatemala did not deserve the land which had been given to them, that the workers did not need their unions, that hunger and torture were a small price to pay for being rid of the scourge of Communism."

William Blum in his book "Killing Hope"

 

"The CIA is not now nor has it ever been a central intelligence agency. It is the covert action arm of the President's foreign policy advisers. In that capacity it overthrows or supports foreign governments while reporting "intelligence" justifying those activities... Disinformation is a large part of its covert action responsibility, and the American people are the primary target audience of its lies.
... The Agency's task is to develop an intemational anti-communist ideology. The CIA then links every egalitarian political movement to the scourge of intemational communism. This then prepares the American people and many in the world community for the second stage, the destruction of those movements. For egalitarianism is the enemy and it must not be allowed to exist."

Ralph McGehee in his book "Deadly Deceits"

 

"Terrorism has replaced Communism as the rationale for the militarization of the country, for military adventures abroad, and for the suppression of civil liberties at home. It serves the same purpose, serving to create hysteria."

Howard Zinn in his book "Terrorism and War"

 

"After World War II, in the name of containing Communism, the United States, mostly through the actions of local allies, executed or encouraged coups in, among other places, Guatemala, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Argentina and patronized a brutal mercenary war in Nicaragua ... By the end of the Cold War, Latin American security forces trained, funded, equipped, and incited by Washington had executed a reign of bloody terror - hundreds of thousands killed, an equal number tortured, millions driven into exile-from which the region has yet to fully recover."

Greg Grandin in his book "Empire's Workshop"

"Since the anticommunism hysteria in the years following the Second World War, a bipartisan consensus has existed on foreign policy, with at least three consequences. First, meaningful political discourse has been almost absent about foreign policy issues. At election time, debates about foreign policy amount to contests to see which of the candidates is "toughest" on communism or "communist"-sponsored insurgencies in various countries. Second, as a result voters have never been presented with alternatives outside the Cold War consensus. And third, so many foreign policy decisions have been placed beyond public scrutiny-only surfacing periodically in public "scandals"-that almost all of what passes as official information about foreign policy is manufactured by government agencies for its propaganda effect."

Daniel Hellinger and Dennis R. Judd in their book "The Democratic Facade"

 

CONSPIRACIES

"World events do not occur by accident. They are made to happen, whether it is to do with national issues or commerce; most of them are staged and managed by those who hold the purse string."

Denis Healey, former British Secretary of Defense

 

"'Conspiracy theory' is a term that at once strikes fear and anxiety in the hearts of most every public figure, particularly journalists and academics. Since the 1960s the label has become a disciplinary device that has been overwhelmingly effective in defining certain events off limits to inquiry or debate. Especially in the United States raising legitimate questions about dubious official narratives destined to inform public opinion (and thereby public policy) is a major thought crime that must be cauterized from the public psyche at all costs."

Professor James F. Tracy, Global Research, 2013

 

"No matter how paranoid or conspiracy-minded you are, what the government is actually doing is worse than you imagine."

William Blum in his book "Rogue State"

 

"We have been conditioned to laugh at conspiracy theories, and few people will risk public ridicule by advocating them... Almost all of history is an unbroken trail of one conspiracy after another. Conspiracies are the norm, not the exception."

G. Edward Griffin, Federal Reserve Historian inis book "The Creature from Jekyll Island"

 

"The media use the epithet 'conspiracy theorist' to discredit anyone who discusses the criminal activities of real people."

Daniel Estulin in his book "Shadow Masters"

"In an oligarchical society characterized by the preponderant role of secret intelligence agencies - such as the United States at the beginning of the twenty-first century - anyone who rules out conspiracies runs the risk of not understanding very much of what is going on."

Webster Griffin Tarpley in his book "9/11 Synthetic Terror - made in the USA"

 

"In America, a 'conspiracy nut' is defined as a journalist who reports the news two years before the New York Times."

Greg Palast

 

"There is a huge tacit conspiracy between the U.S. government, its agencies and its multinational corporations, on the one hand, and local business and military cliques in the Third World, on the other, to assume complete control of these countries and "develop" them on a joint venture basis. The military leaders of the Third World were carefully nurtured by the U.S. security establishment to serve as the "enforcers" of this joint venture partnership, and they have been duly supplied with machine guns and the latest data on methods of interrogation of subversives."

Edward S. Herman

 

""Conspiracy theorist" as an all-purpose term of 'ad hominem' argument to dismiss arguments which cannot be refuted, goes back to the years after the Kennedy assassination, when the public was expected to accept that it was US government policy that this great crime, along with the further assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy in 1968, would remain permanently unsolved, and that those who objected would be vilified."

Webster Griffin Tarpley in his book "9/11 Synthetic Terror - made in the USA"

 

"The corporate-owned press and numerous political leaders have suppressed or attacked the many revelations about the murder [of President John Kennedy in November 1963] unearthed by independent investigators.
... Their efforts reveal a conspiracy to assassinate the president and an even more extensive conspiracy to hide the crime."

Michael Parenti in his book "Dirty Truths"

 

"The high officials, media executives and military officers who are bound by law and ethics to serve the American people have become a textbook example of a grand conspiracy. To look at it from their point of view, they are historic actors who are beyond good and evil, who must stimulate the American people to a necessary geostrategic adventure by any means necessary. To them, the official account of the 9/11 "terror" attacks is what Plato once described as the "noble lie," a necessary falsehood told to a childlike public in order to direct it maturely. The simple fact is that 9/11 has justified an attempt to seize and control the ultimate geostrategic resource: oil."

Captain Eric H. May, a former Army military intelligence and public affairs officer, 2008

 

"Am I a conspiracy theorist if I suggest that since the network's nightly news broadcasts are sponsored almost entirely by prescription drug ads, that you might have to hold your breath a long time before you hear the alternative point of view to using pharmaceuticals to cure all our ailments?
... Do pharmaceutical companies want to cure diabetes or do they want to sell diabetes drugs and equipment? Well, they sure do sell a lot these days, and the food companies are what make that possible. Read David Kessler's book about the deliberate way food companies use salt, fat and sugar as foodcrack to get people literally addicted to eating bad food and too much of it. Is that a conspiracy? Only if you define corporations putting profit ahead of human health as conspiracy. The fact that Americans will do anything to each other for money is not a conspiracy, it's a scandal."

Bill Maher, 2009

 

"There is an Establishment history, an official history, which dominates history textbooks, trade publishing, the media and library shelves. The official line always assumes that events such as wars, revolutions, scandals, assassinations, are more or less random unconnected events. By definition events can never be the result of a conspiracy, they can never result from premeditated planned group action.
... Woe betide any book or author that falls outside the official guidelines. Foundation support is not there. Publishers get cold feet. Distribution is hit and miss, or non-existent."

Antony Sutton in his book "America's Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of Skull and Bones"

 

CONTINUITY OF GOVERNMENT (COG)

"COG (Continuity of Government) called for suspension of the Constitution, turning control of the government over to FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) ,emergency appointment of military commanders to run state and local governments, and declaration of martial law during a national crisis. The plan also gave the FEMA which had been involved in drafting it, sweeping new powers, including internment."

Alfonso Chardy, Miami Herald

 

"COG (Continuity of Government) is a secret program to deal with running the state in the event of national emergency. The COG program was partially implemented on 9/11 by Dick Cheney... If the National Emergencies Act has been rendered inoperative by COG, this would indicate that the constitutional system of checks and balances no longer applies, and also that secret decrees now override public legislation.

Peter Dale Scott

 

From the beginning of the Reagan presidency in 1981, arrangements were made for a secret group outside government to work on so-called "Continuity of Government" or COG plans for running the state in the event of national emergency. Initially this was an extension of existing plans for a response to a nuclear attack which would decapitate the United States' leadership, but before Reagan retired, the terms were modified by his Executive Order 12686 of 1988 to cover any emergency.
The COG actually began under President Jimmy Carter, although Carter may have never been aware of it. Carter did create FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which has always been charged with being the infrastructure for this COG planning... the COG plans were extreme plans, but Congress didn't know about them in the 1980's. Only a small group of people - including Oliver North, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld - were secretly assigned to work on them by a 1981 top secret executive order from Reagan."

Peter Dale Scott

 

"On 9/11, COG (Continuity of Government) plans were implemented, along with an officially proclaimed state of emergency that is still in effect, ignoring a post-Watergate law calling for either approval or termination of an emergency by Congress. The COG plans are a closely kept secret, but there were reports in the 1980's that these involved warrantless surveillance and detention, and a permanent militarization of government. To some extent these changes have clearly been put in place since 9/11."

Peter Dale Scott

 

"As developed in the mid-1980s, the plans for COG (Continuity of Government) called for not just the surveillance but also the potential detention of large numbers of American citizens.
... The COG planning eventually called for suspension of the Constitution, not just "after a nuclear war" but for any "national security emergency." This was defined in Executive Order 12656 of 1988 as "any occurrence, including natural disaster, military attack, technological emergency, or other emergency, that seriously degrades or seriously threatens the national security of the United States."

Peter Dale Scott

 

CORPORATE MEDIA

"We have a corporate media cartel that overlaps with the war industry. It has no interest in democracy."

David Swanson , 2010

 

"Concentrated corporate media have acted as a government megaphone, largely blocking out criticism of the official 9/11 account and the lies that led our troops into the disastrous war in Iraq."

9/11 and American Empire : Intellectuals Speak Out
edited by David Ray Griffin and Peter Dale Scott

 

"If deliberate distortion of reality by corporate media could be effectively prosecuted in the United States, the entire industry would be behind bars."

Cynthia McKinney, 2007

 

"Corporations, which have hijacked the state, are delighted with the demise of journalism. And the mass communications systems they control pump out endless streams of gossip, trivia and filth in lieu of news.
... Money flows to advertising rather than to art or journalism because manipulation is more highly valued than truth or beauty.
... The faux objectivity and neutrality of the traditional news industry hastened the cultural irrelevance of traditional news gathering. The narrowing of debates within the press to the minor differences among the power elite had a debilitating effect on news.
... The lie told by newspapers and traditional news is the lie of omission, which is not as bad as the outright lies told on Fox News, but in the end it is still a lie. Our power elite are bankrupt, and the press, tethered to the elite, is as bankrupt as those it covers.
... Once we lose a system of information based on verifiable fact, will become disconnected from reality. All totalitarian societies impart their propaganda through manipulated images and spectacles. And the death of traditional news is one more stage in the terminal illness that is ravaging American democracy.

Chris Hedges, 2010

 

"Big media in the United States effectively represent the interests of corporate America. The media elite are the watchdogs of acceptable ideological messages, the controllers of news and information content, and the decision-makers regarding media resources."

9/11 and American Empire : Intellectuals Speak Out
edited by David Ray Griffin and Peter Dale Scott

 

"In 2005, newspaper circulation declined over the previous year by 2.6 percent, with the largest declines posted in the major newspapers. Still worse, in 2007, newspaper advertising revenue fell by 9.4 percent.
... In 1980, the combined audience for the NBC, CBS and ABC newscasts was 53 million. Just last month, that audience tallied at 21.5 million: about seven percent of the US population. And the median age of that audience is 60.2, which means that the networks are failing to reach the essential younger age cohorts.
... The newspaper and broadcast industries cite a number of alleged reasons for these figures: the internet, competition from cable news programs, and declining literacy and political interest among the public.
Missing from this list is "the crud factor"; namely, that the quality and credibility of reporting has deteriorated so spectacularly that the public, fed-up with the insults and lies, has turned to other sources of news and information."

Ernest Partridge, 2008

 

"The real problem with professional journalism becomes evident when political elites do not debate an issue and march in virtual lockstep. In such a case professional journalism is, at best, ineffectual, and, at worst, propagandistic. This has often been the case in U.S. foreign policy, where both parties are beholden to an enormous global military complex, and accept the right of the United States, and the United States alone, to invade countries when it suits U.S. interests. In matters of war and foreign policy, journalists who question the basic assumptions and policy objectives and who attempt to raise issues no one in either party wishes to debate are considered 'ideological' and 'unprofessional. This has a powerful disciplinary effect upon journalists."

Robert W. McChesney and John Nichols, 2010

 

"The corporate media is funded by the corporations and wealthy Americans who don't want to pay higher taxes or even pay any taxes and who are largely profiting off the continuing wars."

Coleen Rowley, retired FBI Agent

 

CORPORATOCRACY

"Corporations are totalitarian sociopathic organizations. They are institutional serial killers."

Andrew Gavin Marshall

 

"The forces running the corporate state ... are surely now aware of the impending disaster. Their fear and anxiety is caused by the realization that when the impoverished masses have lost all or most of what they had, they will organize and take to the streets. Hence, every means of mass control is being put in place by the legislature and by executive order, to provide for the use of force to control the population. A pretext for the declaration of martial law and the wholesale detention of American citizens must not be ruled out during a period of decline and disaster."

William F. Pepper in his book "An Act of State: the Execution of Martin Luther King"

 

"The governments of the world are restructuring their economies, and the global economy as a whole, into a corporatist structure. Thus, this new international economic system being constructed is one representative of economic fascism. The governments now work directly for the banks, democracy is in decline everywhere, and the militarization of domestic society into creating "Homeland Security states" is underway and accelerating."

Andrew Gavin Marshall, Global Research

 

"The corporate-dominated economy and the transnational corporate state had consolidated its power over almost every aspect of public and private life, and under a formal globalization movement the transnational corporations were extending their tentacles all over the planet.
Footsoldiers like Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, the ever-dutiful Bush family, Helmut Kohl, and a list of Japanese leaders had diligently kept the faith. Working with the timeworn International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank and ultimately with the new engine of globalization, the World Trade Organization, they ensured that the interests of capital were nowhere endangered by the needs of the world's three billion poor to eat, have shelter, clothing, sanitation, medical care, and education."

William F. Pepper in his book "An Act of State: the Execution of Martin Luther King"

 

"This empire that we've created really has an emperor, and it's not the president of this country... it doesn't really matter whether we have a Democrat or a Republican in the White House or running Congress; the empire goes on, because it's really run by what I call the corporatocracy, which is a group of men who run our biggest corporations. This isn't a conspiracy theory. They don't need to conspire. They all know what serves their best interest. But they really are the equivalent of the emperor, because they do not serve at the wish of the people, they're not democratically elected, they don't serve any limited term. They essentially answer to no one, except their own boards, and most corporate CEOs actually run their boards, rather than the other way around. And they are the power behind this."

John Perkins, 2007

 

"The framework for the post-1945 economy had largely been worked Out by the United States and Britain. It called for the creation of three multilateral institutions - the World Bank, the IMF, and an international trade organization {WTO]... With the demise of the Soviet Union at the beginning of the 1990s, however, there were no longer any alternatives or restrictions on the planet to the spread of corporate colonialism."

William F. Pepper in his book "An Act of State: the Execution of Martin Luther King"

 

"Ronald Reagan .. was most definitely a global empire builder, a servant of the corporatocracy... He would cater to the men who shuttled back and forth from corporate CEO offices to bank boards and into the halls of government. He would serve the men who appeared to serve him but who in fact ran the government - men like Vice President George H. W. Bush, Secretary of State George Shultz, Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger, Richard Cheney, Richard Helms, and Robert McNamara. He would advocate what those men wanted: an America that controlled the world and all its resources, a world that answered to the commands of that America, a U.S. military that would enforce the rules as they were written by America, and an international trade and banking system that supported America as CEO of the global empire."

John Perkins in his book "Confessions of Economic Hit Man"

 

"U.S. multinationals are in a class of their own. Their top managers, the CEOs, have the highest salaries in the world. Japan, Germany, France and England also have global corporations, but managers there earn about a third of what their U.S. counterparts make.
... U.S. CEOs earn three times the average of CEOs in the 13 other advanced countries for which there are comparable data. Only in one country, Switzerland, are 7 CEOs paid even as much as 50 percent of what the average U.S. CEO makes.
... According to the Federal Reserve, while the CEO compensation in Britain was 22 times the pay of an average worker in 2004, in the United States it was 170 times, and in Japan only 11 times."

Ravi Batra in his book "The New Golden Age", 2007

 

"The governments of the world are restructuring their economies, and the global economy as a whole, into a corporatist structure. Thus, this new international economic system being constructed is one representative of economic fascism.

COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS (CFR)

"The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) took control of the ideological foundations of the American empire, encompassing the corporate, banking, political, foreign policy, military, media, and academic elite of the nation into a generally cohesive overall world view. By altering one's ideology to that of promoting such an internationalist agenda, the big money that was behind it would ensure one's rise through government, industry, academia and media. There are divisions within the elite, predicated on the basis of how to use American imperial power, where to use it, on what basis to justify it, and other various methodological differences. The divide amongst elites was never on the questions of: should we use American imperial power, why has America become an Empire, or should there even be an empire? If one takes such considerations to heart and questions these concepts, be it within the foreign policy establishment, intelligence, military, academia, finance, corporate world, or media; chances are, such a person is not a member of the CFR."

Andrew Gavin Marshall

 

"Before America had even entered the war in late 1941 [World War II], the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the American branch of the Round Table groups that originated from the secret society of Cecil Rhodes, was planning on America entering the war. The CFR had essentially captured US foreign policy firmly in the grips of the banking elite. The establishment of the Federal Reserve (1913) ensured that the United States would become indebted to and owned by international banking interests, and thus, act in their interest. The Fed financed the US role in World War I, provided the credit for speculation, which led to the Great Depression, and massive consolidation for the interests that own the Federal Reserve System. It then financed US entry into World War II."

Carroll Quigley, historian and Georgetown University professor, in his book "Tragedy and Hope"

 

"The formal membership in the CFR [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 in spite 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. Indicative of the CFR's power to maintain its anonymity is the fact that, despite its having been operative at the highest levels for nearly fifty years and having from the beginning counted among its members the foremost lions of the Establishment communications media. Only a handful of articles on the Council [on Foreign Relations] have appeared in the nation's great newspapers. Such anonymity - at that level - can hardly be a matter of mere chance."

Gary Allen in his book "None Dare Call It Conspiracy"

 

"For a long time I felt that FDR had developed many thoughts and ideas that were his own to benefit this country, the United States. But, he didn't. Most of his thoughts, his political ammunition, as it were, were carefully manufactured for him in advanced by the Council on Foreign Relations - One World Money group. Brilliantly, with great gusto, like a fine piece of artillery, he exploded that prepared "ammunition" in the middle of an unsuspecting target, the American people, and thus paid off and returned his internationalist political support."

Curtis Dall, FDR's son-in-law, as quoted in his book "My Exploited Father-in-Law"

 

"The CFR (Council on Foreign Relations), dedicated to one-world government, financed by a number of the largest tax-exempt foundations, and wielding such power and influence over our lives in the areas of finance, business, labor, military, education and mass communication media, should be familiar to every American concerned with good government and with preserving and defending the U.S. Constitution and our free-enterprise system. Yet, the nation's news media, usually so aggressive in exposures to inform our people, remain conspicuously silent when it comes to the CFR, its members and their activities.
The CFR is the establishment. Not only does it have influence and power in key decision-making positions at the highest levels of government to apply pressure from above, but it also finances and uses individuals and groups to bring pressure from below, to justify the high level decisions for converting the U.S. from a sovereign Constitutional Republic into a servile member state of a one-world dictatorship."

Rep. John R. Rarick of Louisiana, 1971

 

"The Trilateral Commission doesn't run the world, the Council on Foreign Relations does that."

CFR member Winston Lord,
U.S. Ambassador to China during the Reagan Administration

 

"In foreign affairs the Council on Foreign Relations, superficially an innocent forum for academics, businessmen, and politicians, contains within its shell, perhaps unknown to many of its members, a power center that unilaterally determines U.S. foreign policy. The major objective of this submerged - and obviously subversive - foreign policy is the acquisition of markets and economic power, for a small group of giant multi-nationals under the virtual control of a few banking investment houses and controlling families."

Antony C. Sutton in his book Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler, 2002

 

"Of some 1600 CFR [Council on Foreign Relations] members, 120 either own or control the nation's major newspapers, magazines, radio and television networks, as well as the most powerful book publishing companies. The interlock with academia is immense.
... CFR members virtually control the major foundations, whose grants quite often are bestowed on persons or groups tied to the CFR.
... The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has been under virtual CFR control since its creation.
... Of the CFR's 1974 membership, about 90 represented the major Wall Street international banking organizations. In addition, presidents, vice-presidents and chairmen of the boards of most of the giant corporations are members of the CFR."

Gary Allen in his book "Kissinger", 1976

 

"The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is the American Branch of a society which originated in England ... (and) ... believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established."

Carroll Quigley, historian and Georgetown University professor, in his book "Tragedy and Hope"

 

"I believe that the Council on Foreign Relations and its ancillary elitist groups are indifferent to communism. They have no ideological anchors. In their pursuit of a new world order, they are prepared to deal without prejudice with a communist state, a socialist state, a democratic state, a monarchy, an oligarchy - its all the same to them."

Senator Barry M. Goldwater in his book "With No Apologies"

 

"The most powerful clique in these groups [Round Table Groups] - the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) - have one objective in common: they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the U.S. They want to end national boundaries and racial and ethnic loyalties supposedly to increase business and ensure world peace. What they strive for would inevitably lead to dictatorship and loss of freedoms by the people. The CFR was founded for "the purpose of promoting disarmament and submergence of U.S. sovereignty and national independence into an all-powerful one-world government."

Harpers magazine, July 1958

 

"The Council on Foreign Relations gets little publicity and is virtually unknown to the general public. But it represents Big Government, Big Business, Big Banking, and the Big Media. At the apex of this power elite sits none other than David Rockefeller."

Gary Allen in his book "Kissinger", 1976

 

"When you examine the Council on Foreign Relations' member list, you will find that 90% either sit on the Trilateral Commission or belong to the Bilderberg Group."

Daniel Estulin in his book "The Bilderberg Group"

 

"The CFR [Council on Foreign Relations] established six years after the Federal Reserve was created, worked to promote an internationalist agenda on behalf of the international banking elite. It was to alter America's conceptualization of its place within the world ­ from isolationist industrial nation to an engine of empire working for international banking and corporate American interests. Where the Fed took control of money and debt, the CFR took control of the ideological foundations of such an empire ­ encompassing the corporate, banking, political, foreign policy, military, media, and academic elite of the nation into a generally cohesive overall world view. By altering one's ideology to that of promoting such an internationalist agenda, the big money that was behind it would ensure one's rise through government, industry, academia and media. The other major think tanks and policy institutions in the United States are also represented at the CFR. They are constitutive of divisions within the elite, however, such divisions are predicated on the basis of how to use American imperial power, where to use it, on what basis to justify it, and other various methodological differences. The divide amongst elites was never on the questions of: should we use American imperial power, why has America become an Empire, or should there even be an empire? If one takes such considerations to heart and questions these concepts, be it within the foreign policy establishment, intelligence, military, academia, finance, corporate world, or media; chances are, such a person is not a member of the CFR."

Carroll Quigley, historian and Georgetown University professor, in his book "Tragedy and Hope"

 

"In foreign affairs the Council on Foreign Relations, superficially an innocent forum for academics, businessmen, and politicians, contains within its shell, perhaps unknown to many of its members, a power center that unilaterally determines U.S. foreign policy. The major objective of this submerged - and obviously subversive - foreign policy is the acquisition of markets and economic power (profits, if you will), for a small group of giant multi-nationals under the virtual control of a few banking investment houses and controlling families."

Antony C. Sutton in his book "Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler"

 

"In the beginning, the Council on Foreign Relations was dominated by J.P. Morgan. It is still controlled by international financiers. The Morgan group gradually has been replaced by the Rockefeller consortium. It is the most powerful group in America today. It is even more powerful than the federal government, because almost all of the key positions in government are held by its members. In other words, it is the United States government."
G. Edward Griffin in his book "The Creature from Jekyll Island: a second look at the Federal Reserve"



"The CFR (Council on Foreign Relations), established six years after the Federal Reserve was created, worked to promote an internationalist agenda on behalf of the international banking elite. Where the Fed took control of money and debt, the CFR took control of the ideological foundations of such an empire - encompassing the corporate, banking, political, foreign policy, military, media, and academic elite of the nation into a generally cohesive overall world view."

Carroll Quigley in his book "Tragedy and Hope"



"The Council on Foreign Relations remains active in working toward its final goal of a government over all the world - a government which the Insiders - a global financial elite - and their allies will control."

Gary Allen in his book "None Dare Call It Conspiracy"



"[The goal of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is] to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the United States ... Primarily, they [CFR] want a world banking monopoly from whatever power ends up in the control of global government."

Admiral Chester Ward, longtime Council on Foreign Relations member
