Given all this, the future
economic enslavement of Americans is not an impossibility!

2) THE POWER ELITE'S CONSPIRACY AGAINST AMERICA
By Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.
January 8, 2007
"Get them in debt" for centuries has been a slogan used by the power elite to control individuals and entire nations. Regarding America, one of the driving forces behind the conflict between Britain and Americans 240 years ago was the colonies' printing of their own currencies in the mid-1700s. This represented an independence from the power elite, which the latter began conspiring to crush.
The formation of the Illuminati in 1776, the year of the American Declaration of Independence, was not by the lower class but by an elite group of "philosopher kings" determined to overthrow existing monarchical and religious authority. In league with powerful financial interests, these elitists desired to ensconce themselves as philosophical rulers over the masses.
When the Illuminati was uncovered in the 1780s by the Bavarian police, they were not destroyed but rather dispersed to many places, including France where they formed the Parisian Outlaws League and helped foment the French Revolution in 1789. They also strategically placed themselves as tutors to young princes so they could influence them as future rulers (e.g., Alexander I in Russia in the early 1800s).
Three years after the French Revolution began, in the July 1792 edition of AMERICAN MUSEUM (and NATIONAL GAZETTE), Philip Freneau tried to warn the American people about the power elite's plan to take control of the young independent republic of the United States. "Independence" is not long tolerated by the power elite. I quote Freneau at length in my book THE ROAD TO SOCIALISM AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER, and a primary part of the power elite's plan was the creation of debt "made as big as possible, as perpetual as possible, in as few hands as possible." And 6 years after Freneau's article appeared, President George Washington wrote a letter on October 24, 1798, expressing his concern about the Illuminati presence in the U.S. (letter reproduced in my NOW IS THE DAWNING OF THE NEW AGE NEW WORLD ORDER).
Early in 1811, there was an attempt to recharter the Bank of the United States, but it was rejected because there was resentment against the largely British power elite's ownership of the bank's stock. Not to be thwarted, the power elite knew that a war is always useful to force a nation back into line, thus the War of 1812 with Britain. As a result of the financial hardships created by the war, on March 14, 1816, Americans reluctantly chartered the Second Bank of the United States.
According to WEBSTER'S GUIDE TO AMERICAN HISTORY, the bank became "a symbol of monopoly, aristocracy, and corporate power" to various groups, and its charter renewal was opposed by President Andrew Jackson. An assassin unsuccessfully attempted to kill Jackson, but the assassin informed investigators that he had powerful allies in Europe supporting him.
During this same period, the Parisian Outlaws League evolved in Europe into the League of the Just, which paid Karl Marx to write the Communist Manifesto (1848). Marx based his thesis on the French Revolution's Comte de Saint-Simon's Socialist principles taught to Marx by his father-in-law Ludwig von Westphalen. While Marx presented his ideas as designed to help the working class, the power elite used Marx's monopolistic Socialism to further its goals via government rules and regulations (see 1911 cartoon showing power elite members welcoming Marx and his Socialism to Wall Street, reproduced in my THE ROAD TO SOCIALISM AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER).
Thwarted in its attempt to maintain control over the U.S. by rechartering the Second Bank of the United States, the global power elite developed a strategy of breaking up the U.S. Though the planter class of the South comprised only about 7% of the South's population, it was supported by the global power elite and it was the primary force behind Confederate secession (93% of Southerners owned NO slaves).
On March 15, 1861, John L. Motley (U.S. Minister to Austria) wrote to his mother about "the great conspiracy to establish the Southern Republic, concocted for twenty years, and brought to maturity by Mr. (President) Buchanan's Cabinet Ministers." Motley also in 1861 wrote a letter to the LONDON TIMES explaining that the conspiracy was "to establish a great Gulf Empire, including Mexico, Central America, Cuba and other islands, with unlimited cotton fields and unlimited negroes---this is the golden vision in pursuit of which the great Republic has been sacrificed, the beneficent Constitution subverted."
Once again, a war was created with the power elite's hope that the North would be driven into debt. President Lincoln, however, began to print Greenbacks, making the power elite furious. In M.W. Walbert's THE COMING BATTLE (1899), the author referred to an 1865 editorial by the LONDON TIMES, which stated regarding Lincoln having the U.S. government print its own money to avoid indebtedness to the power elite: "It will have all the money that is necessary to carry on its trade and commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized nations of the world. The brain and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed...." On April 14, 1865, Lincoln was assassinated, just 5 months after writing November 21, 1864, to William Elkind expressing his concern about "the money power of the country" and how they might destroy the Republic.
Texas cotton grower, Thomas House, an agent of the power elite, after the Civil War prepared his son, Col. Edward M. House, to follow in his footsteps. Col. House would guide President Woodrow Wilson toward enactment of the power elite's Federal Reserve (1913), which would place the U.S. in ever greater debt. The concept of a Federal Reserve had been developed in the late 1800s by Col. Elisha Garrison, member of the secret elitist Skull & Bones society. Fellow Bonesman William Whitney at the same time developed a strategy to control both major political parties and alternate power between them so the public thought it had a choice when it didn't. Also at the same time, "philosopher king" Fabian Socialists in Britain formed and linked with the power elite members of Cecil Rhodes' secret Society of the Elect, which was designed "to take the government of the whole world." The Fabians and Rhodes promoted Socialism, while Col. House (President Wilson's chief adviser) supported "Socialism as dreamed of by Karl Marx" (quote from House's PHILIP DRU: ADMINISTRATOR).
The goal as expressed in the 1930s by early Fabian H.G. Wells was to synthesize Western Capitalism and Eastern Communism into a World Socialist Government. And in 1942, P.E. Corbett, a member of Rhodes' Association of Helpers, explained in POST-WAR WORLDS that their goal would be accomplished by linking regional economic arrangements. Rhodes scholar Richard Gardner in FOREIGN AFFAIRS (April 1974) described how they would use GATT to undermine national sovereignty.
FOREIGN AFFAIRS is published by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), founded by Col. House and other agents of the power elite. And GATT is part of the "Western scheme of free trade," foretold by Robert Hugh Benson in LORD OF THE WORLD (1907), which described the American Socialism to come. Rhodes scholar President Bill Clinton saw to it that NAFTA and GATT were approved not long after he became President in 1993 and wrote a letter of support to the World Federalist Association.
In 1996, I wrote a booklet CONSPIRACY explaining what the future would be like under "The Order." Among what I predicted was The Order's "management" of people, including exercise and diet. I indicated that if people didn't "voluntarily" exercise and eat what The Order determined they should, insurance premiums would increase. Sure enough, ten years later on December 28, 2006, an article appeared regarding a poll stating: "73% said they would support government incentives for companies that reduced the cost of health care insurance for employees who adopt healthier lifestyles and shed extra weight."
This is how the power elite works. Remember immediately after the attacks of 9/11, there was a poll showing two-thirds of Americans would be willing to give up some of their freedoms in order to have safety, and shortly thereafter we got the Patriot Act taking away some freedoms. And remember we saw the torture of Abu Ghraib not long after a poll showed two-thirds of Americans would support torturing prisoners in the war on terror (which has increased our debt).
Another way the power elite works, as I have described in previous articles, is by psychological probes to see what the American people will tolerate. Just last month, President Bush had a "signing statement" attached to the postal reform bill on December 20, 2006, indicating that in emergencies or foreign intelligence cases, Americans' mail could be opened without judicial warrants. Do you really believe terrorists are going to communicate with each other via the slow, unreliable U.S. postal service? Of course, they're not. This "signing" was actually a psychological probe to see Americans' reaction to yet another erosion of our rights.
The power elite's plan for America has not just involved economics and politics, but religion as well. Using the historical tension (wars) between Protestants and Catholics, the power elite dialectically used "separation of church and state" to undermine the influence of traditional religious values on American life and government. Via the Delphi technique, fundamentalist Christians have been portrayed as right-wing extremists wanting to impose their morality on everyone. Thus, America has become increasingly secularized, and the power elite can therefore call for "what values we all have in common."
The power elite is using internationally this same principle. For example, when one doesn't look at Iraq logically but rather in terms of the power elite's goals, one doesn't see the sectarian violence between Sunnis and Shiites as undermining American efforts, but something quite different. (Just as the pictures of Abu Ghraib didn't surface by accident, do you really believe the photos of Saddam Hussein's hanging were allowed and circulated to the media by accident?) Rather, the Sunnis vs. Shiite violence is used to weary the combatants so they will accept secularization via "separation of mosque and state." The participants are told this is the only way to avoid an expanded war involving other Muslim nations, and the Wahhabites are also described as the extremist element in the scenario.
A larger war involving Iran is presented as avoidable only by deposing the religious mullahs with a secular regime (perhaps under Dr. Froud Fouladvand, formerly with the Shah of Iran who was also brought to power and deposed as part of the power elite's plan). The CIA, of course, will assist in this, just as they helped overthrow [duly elected] Iranian leader Mohammad Mossadegh in 1953. Why do you think U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan, Ryan Crocker, is replacing Zalmay Khalilzad in Iraq?

3) OUR FEUDAL FUTURE
By Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.
July 24, 2006
In the 1950s, I used to watch a TV show called "Robin Hood" in which the hero was also called the Earl or Baron of Locksley. I didn't think much about it at the time, but then I learned President Harry Truman used to carry in his pocket part of an 1842 poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson called "Locksley Hall." The part Truman carried with him predicted a "parliament of man, the federation of the world" with "universal law," and Truman explained "That's what I have been working for."
Later in the 1950s, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund Special Studies Project produced THE MID-CENTURY CHALLENGE TO U.S. FOREIGN POLICY, in which one reads: "We cannot escape, and indeed should welcome, the task which history has imposed upon us. This is the task of helping shape a new world order in all its dimensions---spiritual, economic, political, social."
I thought it strange that the powerful Rockefellers would use the word "spiritual" first in the "new world order," but then I reflected upon who Robin Hood was. He had also been referred to as Robin of Greenwood or Green Robin, named for the Green Man, who was the Celtic vegetation god.
Thus pagan gods and goddesses will be acceptable in the spiritual new world order. Before President George H.W. Bush called for a "new world order," Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev called for it, and Gorbachev is now head of Green Cross International (note especially the words "Green" and "Cross"). Gorbachev (along with Maurice Strong) is also responsible for the Earth Charter, which Gorbachev and Strong both have stated will be like a new Ten Commandments. And they have placed the Charter (written by Steven Rockefeller) in the Ark-of-Hope, modeled after the Ark of the Covenant. Do you get the religious symbolism?
On June 25, 2001, the U.S. Conference of Mayors passed a resolution stating that the conference "endorses the Earth Charter and commits the organization to the realization of its aim." And one of the main goals of the Earth Charter is to "promote the equitable distribution of wealth within nations and among nations." Thus, just as Robin Hood "redistributed wealth" in feudal times, under the Earth Charter the wealth of primarily middle class Americans will be given to people in other nations.
While the Earth Charter has been paraded around the world (including the U.S.), display of the Ten Commandments in public places has come under attack.
It seems that today we're going
"back to the feudal," not only spiritually, but economically,
politically, and socially as well.
Socially, troubadours and court jesters have been replaced by the media and press. Recent fashions have included women's leotard-style pants and hairstyles like men wore in feudal days, along with pan flutes (feudal music).
Politically, the King becomes Big Brother, princes and princesses become international bankers, Knights of the Round Table become members of Cecil Rhodes' Round Table Groups, the Sheriff (of Nottingham) becomes the U.N. Secretary-General with his blue-helmet troops, dukes and duchesses become corporate heads, lords and overlords become world government leaders, earls become heads of nations, viscounts become legislative leaders, and barons and baronesses become state governors. [rule via the perks of profit, power and privilege - CR]
Economically, there was no middle class in feudal times, and that's exactly why there is an assault upon the middle class today. The tax burden today is largely borne by the middle class, which pays a higher percentage of its income in taxes than the serfs of feudal days paid from what they produced. Small businessmen (regulated by bureaucrats) today have become like feudal vassals on fiefs. You and I are like the peasants of feudal times. We're called "human capital" or "human resources," and are to be "managed" like feudal "human chattel." [making merchandise of people. CR]
The famous author Jack London in THE IRON HEEL (1907) said that OUR BENEVOLENT FEUDALISM (1902) by W.J. Ghent (editor of THE AMERICAN FABIAN) was "the textbook" the "Oligarchs" would use to rule in the future. London stated that the Oligarchs and Plutocrats would have new ways "of molding the thought processes of the nation," and that the banks would constitute "one of the most important forces of the Oligarchy....The labor castes, the Mercenaries, and the great hordes of secret agents and police...were all pledged to the Oligarchy....The condition of the people of the abyss was pitiable....All their old liberties were gone. They were labor-slaves. Choice of work was denied them. Likewise was denied them...the right to bear or possess arms. They were not land-serfs like the farmers. They were machine-serfs and labor-serfs."
In Ghent's article, "The Next Step: A Benevolent Feudalism," published in THE INDEPENDENT (April 3, 1902), he predicted that "the coming status...will be something in the nature of a benevolent feudalism....Group fidelity...is already observable....The autocrats...will distribute benefits to the degree that makes a tolerant, if not satisfied, people....A person of offensive activity may be denied work in every feudal shop and on every feudal farm from one end of the country to the other....His actions will be promptly communicated to the banded autocracy of dukes, earls and marquises of industries....The individual security of place and livelihood of its members will then depend on the harmony of their utterances and acts with the wishes of the great nobles; and so long as they rightly fulfill their functions their recompense will be generous.
They will be at once the assuagers of popular suspicion and discontent and the providers of moral and intellectual anodynes for the barons....A host of economists, preachers and editors will be ready to show indisputably that the evolution taking place is for the best interests of all....What the barons will most dread will be the collective assertion of the villains at the polls, but this, from experience, they will know to be a thing of no immediate danger. By the putting forward of a hundred irrelevant issues they can hopelessly divide the voters at each election; or, that failing, there is always to be trusted as a last resort the cry of impending panic....Two divisions of the courtier class are the judges and the politicians....They must satisfy the demands of the multitude, and yet, on the other hand, they must obey the commands from above....The nobles will have attained to complete power, and the motive and operation of Government will have become simply the registering and administering of their collective will....Armed force will, of course, be employed to overawe the discontented and to quiet unnecessary turbulence. Unlike the armed forces of the old feudalism, the nominal control will be that of the State....When the new order is in full swing...so comprehensive and so exact will be the social and political control that it will be exercised in a constantly widening scope....Peace (and stability) will be the main desideratum....A happy blending of generosity and firmness will characterize all dealings with open discontent....(To) the prevention of discontent...the teachings of the schools and colleges, the sermons, the editorials...and even the plays at the theaters will be skillfully and persuasively molded."
Isn't this an accurate description of what we are witnessing today? The power elite educationally has dumbed-down the populace and considers us no better than the knaves and oafs of feudal times. Their attitude is exemplified by what David Rockefeller told Congressman William Dannemeyer: "There are some men born to rule. Most men are born to be ruled."
The power elite simply ordered their puppets in the White House and Congress to approve NAFTA and GATT even though an overwhelming majority of Americans opposed both. Then through globalization, they sent manufacturing jobs overseas, outsourced high-tech jobs, and imported guest workers to perform lower-skilled jobs.
Why do Americans allow this to happen? It's because their retirement funds are in 401Ks that are heavily invested in transnational corporations whose profits increasingly come from outside the U.S. Thus, to criticize globalization is to jeopardize one's own retirement funds. So the masses today are kept entertained by sports (like jousts and archery contests of feudal times), music (by the equivalent of feudal minstrels), and by TV soap operas and sitcoms (like feudal puppet shows).
As long as Americans are willing
to be kept fat, dumb and happy, it seems futile to think our future will not be

4) THE POWER ELITE EXPOSED
By Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.
March 16, 2004
There is... little doubt that the American power elite has... planned and plotted... The power elite is not altogether 'surfaced.' ...With the wide secrecy covering their operations and decisions, the power elite can mark their intentions, operations and further consolidation... New men come into it [the power elite] and assume its existence without question. --from The Power Elite (1956) by Columbia University sociologist C. Wright Mills
The nation's immediate problem is that while the common man fights America's wars, the intellectual elite sets its agenda. Today, whether the West lives or dies is in the hands of its new power elite: those who set the terms of public debate, who manipulate the symbols, who decide whether nations or leaders will be depicted on 100 million television sets as 'good' or 'bad.' This power elite sets the limits of the possible for Presidents and Congress. It molds the impressions that move the nation, or that mire it. --from The Real War (1980) by President Richard Nixon
At the national level, this conditioning of the public might be brought about via certain crises, such as a terrorist attack... For the sake of peace and security, people may be willing to give up certain of their freedoms to some extent. --from The Globalists: The Power Elite Exposed (published July 2001, two months before the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001) by Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.
Popular national radio talk-show host [idiot] Rush Limbaugh repeatedly refers to anyone who believes in a one-world government conspiracy involving the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) as a "kook." However, on his February 7, 1995 program, he remarked: "You see, if you amount to anything in Washington these days, it is because you have been plucked or handpicked from an Ivy League school -- Harvard, Yale, Kennedy School of Government -- you've shown an aptitude to be a good Ivy League type, and so you're plucked so to speak, and you are assigned success. You are assigned a certain role in government somewhere, and then your success is monitored and tracked, and you go where the pluckers and the handpickers can put you."
While there are conspiracies going on in the world today, the pursuit of world government now is no longer conspiratorial in the sense of being hidden or secret. Rather, it's what socialist author H.G. Wells called "The Open Conspiracy," as prominent people such as Bill Clinton have openly written in support of world government. It will probably be a World Socialist Government, synthesizing western capitalism and eastern communism. In fact, Joseph Stalin in a speech at Sverdlov University in April 1924 pronounced that "the amalgamation and collaboration of nations within a single world system of economy constitutes the material basis for the victory of socialism." And regarding what world government will ultimately mean, it will be authoritarian and repressive, for as Lord Acton wrote: "Absolute power corrupts absolutely."
In 1891, gold and diamond magnate Cecil Rhodes formed a secret society, the Society of the Elect, to "absorb the wealth of the world" and "to take the government of the whole world," according to Rhodes. According to Prof. Carroll Quigley, Bill Clinton's mentor at Georgetown University, in The Anglo-American Establishment, Rhodes' conspiratorial secret society lasted almost 60 years. By that time, enough members of the society and Rhodes scholars had penetrated the areas of politics, economics, journalism and education, so that the society was simply replaced by a network of power elite, who would openly pursue world government.
According to Quigley, "The [Rhodes] scholarships were merely a facade to conceal the secret society, or, more accurately, they were to be one of the instruments by which members of the secret society could carry out Rhodes' purpose." And in case anyone doubts the credibility of Prof. Quigley regarding this matter, The Washington Post article (March 23, 1975) about him and his information obtained from the power elite's "secret records" was titled, "The Professor Who Knew Too Much."
Cecil Rhodes' secret society was comprised of a small "Circle of Initiates" and a larger semi-secret "Association of Helpers" which formed Round Table Groups.
Rhodes scholars today will tell you that Rhodes abandoned his conspiratorial plans, instead opting simply to establish Rhodes scholarships. However, Association of Helpers member Arnold Toynbee, a world famous British historian, revealed in a June 1931 speech to the Institute for the Study of International Affairs at Copenhagen: "We are at present working discreetly with all our might to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world. All the time we are denying with our lips what we are doing with our hands, because to impugn the sovereignty of the local nation states of the world is still a heresy for which a statesman or publicist can perhaps not quite be burned at the stake but certainly ostracized or discredited." (See "The Trend of International Affairs Since The War" in the November 1931 edition of the Royal Institute of International Affairs' journal International Affairs.) This was decades after Rhodes established his scholarships.
Members of the Round Table Groups along with members of the Fabian (Socialist) Society as well as "the Inquiry" (a group formed by President Woodrow Wilson's chief advisor, Col. Edward M. House) formed the Royal Institute of International Affairs in Great Britain, and its American branch, the CFR. Both Prof. Quigley in Tragedy and Hope and CFR member Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. in A Thousand Days have referred to the CFR as a "front" for the power elite. And in Men and Powers, former West Germany chancellor Helmut Schmidt referred to the CFR as "the foreign policy elite," which prepared people for "top-level missions" in government and "other centers of international policy" and "had very silent but effective ways of seeing to its own succession."
Members of Rhodes' secret society networked with Fabian Socialists, who established the London School of Economics in 1895. One early Fabian, H.G. Wells, in New Worlds for Old explained what he called "a plot," whereby heads of state would come and go, but bureaucrats trained at the London School of Economics, for example, would remain in government making rules and regulations furthering the goals of the Fabian Socialists. Wells broke with the Fabians, not in terms of goals, but only in believing they should be open about them, as he explained the coming synthesis of western capitalism and eastern communism into a world socialist government. In this regard, he authored The Open Conspiracy: Blue Prints for a World Revolution (1928) and The New World Order (1939), in which he said sovereign states (nations) would end and "countless people... will hate the new world order... and will die protesting against it."
The power elite understood that it would be difficult to get the people of the world to accept a world government all at once, and so a gradualistic approach was suggested. Association of Helpers member and Canadian Rhodes scholar P.E. Corbett in Post-War Worlds (1942) wrote: "A world association binding together and coordinating regional groupings of states may evolve toward one universal federal government... World government is the ultimate aim, but there is more chance of attaining it by gradual development." More recently, at Mikhail Gorbachev's first State of the World Forum in 1995, Zbigniew Brzezinski (President Jimmy Carter's National Security Advisor) announced that we "cannot leap into world government through one quick step, but rather via progressive regionalization."
During the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the trend toward socialism was obvious, but even after World War II it continued, as U.S. Rep. Carroll Reece on April 6, 1956 delivered a speech saying, "We approach closer and closer to socialism [i.e. monopoly capitalism for the Elite]," and "The foundation-financed cartel promotes the idea of government by an elite." One of the elite was Rhodes scholar Walt Rostow who, in The United States in the World Arena (1960), proposed "an end to nationhood as it has been historically defined." He became Deputy National Security Advisor for President John F. Kennedy, whose Secretary of State was Rhodes scholar Dean Rusk, who in September 1961 issued "Freedom From War: The U.S. Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World."
The same year "Freedom From War" was issued, another Rhodes scholar, Richard Gardner, became Deputy Assistant Secretary of State and three years later, while still in that position, authored In Pursuit of World Order. The Foreword to this book was written by Rhodes scholar Harlan Cleveland, who has been a CFR member, Ambassador to NATO, Director of International Affairs at the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies, and Chairman of the U.S. Weather Modification Advisory Board. Cleveland's books include The Third Try at World Order, Birth of a New World, and The Global Commons: Policy for the Planet.
How would "World Order" be pursued? In the April 1974 edition of the CFR's Foreign Affairs, Richard Gardner wrote in "The Hard Road to World Order," that it would involve "an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece." He believed that approach would "accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault," and he further explained how GATT could be involved in the process. Gardner would eventually become an advisor on the United Nations to CFR member Bill Clinton's first presidential campaign, after which he would become U.S. Ambassador to Spain, from which would come Marxist Javier Solana as the head of NATO with the support of the Clinton administration.
Bill Clinton had become a Rhodes scholar in the late 1960s with support from Prof. Quigley and Rhodes scholar U.S. Senator J. William Fulbright, who had authored Old Myths and New Realities (1964), announcing: "Indeed, the concept of national sovereignty has become in our time a principle of international anarchy... The sovereign nation can no longer serve as the ultimate unit of personal loyalty and responsibility."
During then Governor Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign, his Rhodes scholar roommate at Oxford University, CFR director Strobe Talbott, wrote in Time (July 20, 1992) that "perhaps national sovereignty wasn't such a great idea after all... But it has taken the events in our own wondrous and terrible century to clinch the case for world government." For that article, Talbott would receive the World Federalist Association's "Norman Cousins Global Governance Award," and on June 22, 1993, President Clinton would send a congratulatory letter to the WFA regarding the award, saying that previous WFA president Norman Cousins had worked for world peace "and world government." President Clinton ended the letter by wishing the WFA "future success." The WFA's objective is world federal government, and in 1994 it published The Genius of Federation: Why World Federation Is the Answer to Global Problems, in which it strategized: "Let the U.N. establish new agencies such as the International Criminal Court... National sovereignty would be gradually eroded until it is no longer an issue. Eventually a world federation can be formally adopted with little resistance." In November 2003, the WFA merged with the Campaign for United Nations Reform to form a new organization called Citizens for Global Solutions with the motto "Building a World Community Under Law."
During his presidency, Bill Clinton would also develop a close relationship with British Prime Minister Tony Blair (a vice-president of Socialist International), whose "The Third Way: New Politics for the New Century" calling for "ethical socialism" was published in September 1998 by the Fabian (Socialist) Society. And in The Washington Post (April 7, 1999), Rhodes scholar E.J. Dionne, Jr. wrote "A World Safe for Socialism," describing how the Democratic Leadership Council "found itself playing host... to four Western European leaders whose parties have socialist and social democratic roots... All subscribe to versions of the 'Third Way' approach to politics that Blair and Clinton have been marketing."
When Bill Clinton was first campaigning for the presidency, he took a "tough" stand concerning policy toward Communist China. However, over the years of his presidency, his policies toward that nation took a dramatically more friendly shift. On ABC's "This Week" (March 15, 1997), Rhodes scholar and former Clinton administration communications director George Stephanopoulos (CFR member) revealed: "There were a lot of reasons the president changed his policy on China... It had little to do with [Chinese] contributions." And when Cokie Roberts on the same program, said, "It had more to do with American money," Stephanopoulos replied: "Council on Foreign Relations, Lehman Brothers, Goldman-Sachs, absolutely." Quite a few Rhodes scholars have occupied high-level positions with Goldman-Sachs over the years.
At this point, someone might say that they understand that Cecil Rhodes had a secret society to take over the world, and that Rhodes scholars like Robert Reich, Ira Magaziner, James Woolsey and others played important roles in the Clinton Administration. But, they might say, "That's all over, isn't it, now that Clinton has left office?"
It's important to remember, though, in this regard what Prof. Quigley said in Tragedy and Hope. He noted that William C. Whitney and others of wealth in the late 19th century developed a plan whereby they would control both major political parties through financial contributions, and then have those parties alternate power so that the public would think it had a choice. Prof. Quigley said that Whitney's plan lasted about 16 years, and after that, the "Eastern Establishment" (power elite) moved the Democrat and Republican presidential candidates toward the political center, "assiduously fostering the process behind the scenes." Prof. Quigley also said, "the process was concealed, as much as possible," and Quigley himself believed "the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can 'throw the rascals out' at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy."
William C. Whitney and his son were members of Yale University's secret society Skull & Bones. And while Rhodes scholars were penetrating the areas of education, economics, journalism and politics, Skull & Bones member and Fabian Socialist ally Daniel Coit Gilman brought G. Stanley Hall to Johns Hopkins University, where he mentored Fabian Socialist ally John Dewey, the "father of progressive education," who said in Individualism, Old and New that "we are in for some kind of socialism."
In economics, Skull & Bones member Thomas Daniels was Chairman of the Board of Archer-Daniels-Midland transnational corporation, and Fabian Socialist John Maynard Keynes was promoting his debt-laden "Keynesian economics," which President Richard Nixon (CFR member) in a January 4, 1971 interview with Rhodes scholar Howard K. Smith said he had now adopted. On September 30, 2001 on "Fox News Sunday," Skull & Bones member President George W. Bush's chief-of-staff Andrew Card also said he believed a combination of supply-side and Keynesian economics works best.
In journalism, just as Rhodes scholars like Erwin Canham (president of the American Society of Newspaper Editors) and newsmen Howard K. Smith and Charles Collingwood along with Fabian (Socialist) Society members like Walter Lippmann (member of "the Inquiry" and CFR founding member) became prominent, Skull & Bones members Richard Ely Danielson became publisher of Atlantic Monthly, Russell Wheeler Davenport became editor of Fortune, William F. Buckley, Jr. became publisher of National Review, and Henry Luce became the founder of Time. Luce biographer Robert Herzstein wrote: "Early on, young Harry [Henry Luce] learned that a powerful circle of contacts and friends could move the world."
In politics, Skull & Bones member William Howard Taft in 1912 lost his presidential re-election bid in a three-way race similar to that of 1992 when Skull & Bones member George H.W. Bush lost his re-election bid to Bill Clinton. In 1912, Taft lost to Gov. Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat whose chief advisor Col. Edward M. House had promoted in Philip Dru: Administrator "socialism as dreamed of by Karl Marx." And in 1992, President George H.W. Bush lost to Rhodes scholar Bill Clinton, who soon thereafter introduced a health care plan about which Milton Friedman on C-Span (Nov. 20, 1994) said: "You can't think of a more Socialist program than the health care program that he [Bill Clinton] tried to get us to adopt."
Relevant to Prof. Quigley's reference to William C. Whitney's plan for an alternation of power and the power elite's promotion of Democrat and Republican presidential candidates whose foreign policy views are similarly globalist, Skull & Bones member George W. Bush then succeeded Bill Clinton as president, but foreign policy remained basically the same, which is what the power elite want. George W. Bush, his father, and Bill Clinton all supported such things as NAFTA, GATT, the World Trade Organization, U.N. peacekeeping operations, and Most Favored Nation trading status for Communist China. And like his father and Bill Clinton, President George W. Bush (whose website for his presidential campaign of 2000 was with Illuminati Online) has appointed notable CFR members to high-level positions in his administration. They include Colin Powell, Christine Todd Whitman, Elaine Chao, Condoleezza Rice and Robert Zoellick. Vice-President Dick Cheney is also a CFR member, and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is a former CFR member.
In the presidential campaign of 2004, among the leading Democratic challengers to President Bush were General Wesley Clark (Rhodes scholar from Little Rock, Arkansas) and U.S. Senator John Edwards, whose primary domestic policy advisor was Bruce Reed (Rhodes scholar who was President Clinton's Domestic Policy Council deputy assistant). Though each of these candidates won a state's primary, U.S. Senator John Kerry has won far more primary states and is the presumptive Democratic nominee for President. Like President George W. Bush, Sen. Kerry is also a member of Skull & Bones, so whether the Democratic or Republican nominee wins the election in November 2004, a member of Skull & Bones will be President. And like President Bush, Sen. Kerry has also supported NAFTA, GATT, etc., which are vitally important to the power elite.
At this point, someone might argue that neither President George H.W. Bush nor his son, President George W. Bush, promotes socialism per se, and that is correct. But it should be remembered that what is at work is a "process," and when President George H.W. Bush gave us national education goals and his son's federal education budget is the largest ever, including an element of "accountability" to the federal Department of Education, that cannot be considered a movement away from socialism. Similarly, when President George H.W. Bush and his son both show some deference to the U.N., which is overwhelmingly dominated by socialist nations, that cannot be considered a movement away from a world socialist government. Is there really any substantial difference between President George H.W. Bush saying the Gulf War against Iraq was conducted under the authority of a U.N. resolution, and Bill Clinton saying on October 19, 1993 regarding Somalia that his administration is engaging in a political process "to see how we can... do all the things the United Nations ordered [us] to do"? And in case one doesn't believe the U.N. is pursuing world government status, what else can one call it when the U.N.'s International Criminal Tribunal claims the right to indict even an elected head of state of a sovereign nation and pursue him anywhere in the world?
Concerning the United Nations, one can find examples of both Rhodes scholar and Skull & Bones involvement. At the suggestion of President Clinton, U.N. Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali made Rhodes scholar James Gustave Speth head of the U.N. Development Program. This was after Vice-President Bush in 1986 had recommended Skull & Bones member William Henry Draper III for the same position. Incidentally, Draper in 1977 had contributed $93,000 to Skull & Bones member George W. Bush's first company, Arbusto Energy, of which Salem bin Laden (Osama bin Laden's brother) was also a founder. Regarding other Skull & Bones members around George H.W. Bush (whose brother, Jonathan, is a member), Christopher Buckley (William F. Buckley, Jr.'s son) is a member of this Yale University secret society and was a speechwriter for Vice-President Bush. And member Bruce S. Gelb (CFR member) was director of the U.S. Information Agency and later Ambassador to Belgium after Vice-President Bush became President. And regarding President George W. Bush, he appointed a number of fellow Skull & Bones members including Edward McNally (General Counsel to the Office of Homeland Security), William Howard Taft IV (legal counsel to Secretary of State Colin Powell), and William Henry Donaldson (Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission).
In the U.S. Government, there has also been matching Rhodes scholar and Skull & Bones involvement. In the executive branch, at the same time Rhodes scholar Strobe Talbott was becoming number two at the State Department, President Clinton had appointed Skull & Bones member Winston Lord (former CFR president) as an Assistant Secretary of State. And just as President John F. Kennedy had a number of Rhodes scholars at high levels in his administration, Skull & Bones members McGeorge Bundy and brother William Bundy occupied high-level positions then as well. William Bundy also worked for the CIA as have other Skull & Bones members such as William F. Buckley, Jr., his brother James Buckley, William Sloane Coffin, Archibald MacLeish, Richard Bissell, F. Trubee Davison, Amory Howe Bradford (officer of The New York Times from the mid-1940s until 1963), Richard Drain, Howard Weaver, and Hugh Cunningham (also a Rhodes scholar). Skull & Bones member George H.W. Bush actually headed the CIA as have Rhodes scholars Stansfield Turner and James Woolsey.
Regarding the military, Skull & Bones member Henry Stimson (who initiated George H.W. Bush into the same secret society) was Secretary of War in the administration of President Franklin Roosevelt, and President Clinton appointed Rhodes scholar Gen. Wesley Clark as head of NATO forces. President Clinton also appointed Rhodes scholar Richard Danzig as Secretary of the Navy and Rhodes scholar Admiral Dennis C. Blair as Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Pacific Command.
In the legislative branch, a number of Rhodes scholars and Skull & Bones members have been in Congress, and former U.S. Senator David Boren (CFR member) is both a Rhodes scholar and Skull & Bones member, who on August 26, 1992 wrote an article in The New York Times advocating a rapid deployment force for the U.N. to facilitate "the new world order." During the Clinton presidency, Sen. Boren as a Rhodes scholar persuaded President Clinton to make George Tenet head of the CIA, and then Sen. Boren as a Skull & Bones member persuaded fellow Bonesman President George W. Bush to keep Tenet in that important position.
In the judicial branch, the U.S. Supreme Court has included Skull & Bones members Potter Stewart and William Howard Taft (Chief Justice), and Rhodes scholars John Harlan, David Souter, and Byron White. One of Justice White's law clerks was Rhodes scholar David Kendall, who was also President Clinton's attorney during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Outside of government, of course, Rhodes scholars and Skull & Bones members have also been involved in important areas of American life, such as finance. Earlier it was mentioned how quite a few Rhodes scholars have worked for Goldman-Sachs over the years, and Skull & Bones members Averell Harriman, his brother E. Roland Harriman, and Prescott Sheldon Bush (George H.W. Bush's father) were partners in Brown Brothers, Harriman & Co.
These individuals have formed a network of power over the years, and although not every Rhodes scholar and Skull & Bones member has been plotting to take over the world, they are, for the most part, an elite whose globalist goals must be resisted by Americans who oppose any diminution of our Constitutional freedoms or our national sovereignty.
How might this diminution occur? At the top of page 303 of my book, The Globalists: The Power Elite Exposed, published in July 2001, I state: "At the national level, this conditioning of the public might be brought about via certain crises, such as a terrorist attack... For the sake of peace and security, people may be willing to give up certain of their freedoms to some extent." Then on September 11, terrorists attacked the Pentagon near Washington, D.C., and the World Trade Center in New York City, and a few hours later ABC News/Washington Post released poll results showing two-thirds "say they would sacrifice some personal liberties in support of anti-terrorism efforts." Does this mean the power elite plotted the attacks on September 11? After all, didn't the public affairs website indiareacts.com report on June 26 that the U.S. and Russia plan "'limited military action' against the Taliban if the contemplated tough new economic sanctions don't bend Afghanistan's fundamentalist regime"? And didn't the PBS program "Jihad in America" in 1994 show radical Muslims speaking in the U.S. over a decade ago and saying they would attack our airplanes and go after our high buildings? And in the same year of 1994, didn't Islamic terrorists hijack a plane in Algiers, intending to fly the passenger aircraft full of fuel into a tall prominent structure, the Eiffel Tower, exploding the plane over Paris?
Closer to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, didn't AirlineBiz.com on June 23, 2001 carry a report by a Muslim who had just interviewed Osama bin Laden and concluded that it was a race to see whether the U.S. would attack bin Laden first or he would attack the U.S. first? Shortly after this report, didn't the Northwest Airlines flight attendants' website carry a "Backgrounder" by Washington Times reporter Bill Gertz referring to Project Bojinka with hijacked airliners flying into the World Trade Center, Pentagon and other buildings? Then on September 10, 2001, didn't some top Pentagon officials suddenly cancel their travel plans for the next morning apparently because of security concerns, according to two reports by Newsweek? And on the evening of September 10, 2001, eight hours before the terrorist attacks of September 11, didn't San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown's security people at the airport there call him before his flight to New York City the morning of September 11 and advise him that he and all Americans should be cautious about their air travel (see The San Francisco Chronicle, September 12, page A17)? How could our leaders following the September 11 terrorist attacks here say that no one could have imagined such a thing would occur? I filed a Freedom of Information request regarding any warnings, alerts, or emergency rulings by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) or other government agencies pertaining to transportation between May 2001 and September 15 of that year. The Department of Homeland Security replied they had found 12 relevant Information Circulars, but they would not let me see them.
Wasn't Marcus Mabry's Newsweek Web Exclusive of September 15, 2001, about the terrorist attacks and their aftermath titled, "Welcome to the New World Order"? And didn't Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien say on September 29, 2001, that "there will probably be a new order in the world that will probably be better than we have now"?
Rather, there is a dialectic at work here. You may recall that under at State Department contract, CFR member Lincoln Bloomfield in 1962 wrote: "A world effectively controlled by the United Nations is one in which 'world government' would come about through the establishment of supranational institutions, characterized by... some ability to employ physical force... [But] if the communist dynamic was greatly abated, the West might lose whatever incentive it has for world government." Interestingly, Bloomfield also wrote that the world government could come about by means of "a grave crisis or war to bring about a sudden transformation in national attitudes sufficient for the purpose... The order we examine may be brought into existence as a result of a series of sudden, nasty, and traumatic shocks."
Relevant to today, it is the reaction (public willingness to give up some Constitutional freedoms) to the action (terrorist attack wherever and whenever and however it occurs) that is important to the power elite. And in case anyone doesn't believe the power elite wants a diminution of our Constitutional freedoms and our national sovereignty, just look at Our Global Neighborhood: The Basic Vision, a document produced several years ago by The Commission on Global Governance, whose work was supported by then U.N. Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali. Members of the Commission included Maurice Strong (Secretary-General of the Rio Earth Summit, co-author of the current Earth Charter, and right-hand man of U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan) and Barber Conable (former president of the World Bank). Among the Commission's proposals are that "a new world order must be organized... In certain fields, sovereignty has to be exercised collectively... The principle of sovereignty must be adapted in such a way as to balance... the interests of nations with the interests of the global neighborhood... We strongly endorse community initiatives to... encourage the disarming of civilians... We would like to see a permanent international criminal court instituted as a matter of the highest priority... We are... in need of a mobilizing principle... a new world order that secures the ascendancy of global neighborhood values over divisive nationalism."
Of course, the public will have to be prepared to accept world government, and what better way to do that than via education. The primary arm of the U.N. dealing with education is UNESCO, and in its first Director -- General Sir Julian Huxley's UNESCO: Its Purpose and Its Philosophy (1948), he wrote: "Political unification in some sort of world government will be required." On October 3, 2003, on the occasion of the U.S. rejoining UNESCO (after President Reagan had withdrawn the U.S.), U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige declared: "The United States is pleased to return to UNESCO... Our governments have entrusted us with the responsibility of preparing our children to become citizens of the world... UNESCO is a powerful forum for sharing our views, developing a common strategy, and implementing joint action."
The problem with the concept of
"world citizens" is that just as "citizens" of a state have to obey the laws of
that state, "citizens of the world" will be expected to obey world laws. And the
clear majority of the world's nations are socialist, so that world laws will
reflect a socialist perspective.
The conditioning of the public in the past has been gradual, but as famous author H.G. Wells noted, the process will speed up in the end as the synthesis toward a World Socialist Government gains greater momentum. Hopefully, Americans will wake up before it's too late and resist this global effort on the part of the power elite.
