The Council On Foreign Relations

1989  Oaxaca-Zipolite (4)Two nights ago NBC Nightly News reported the massacre of 43 college students Tlatelolco in the Mexican state of Guerrero.  Though the students had been protesting austerity measures, and while Guerrero has long been a hotbed of leftist Popular Revolutionary Army (EPR) rebel activity, the report depicted the slaughter as some random act of violence carried out by Mexican drug cartels.

The reality is that the massacre was carried out by right-wing paramilitaries in cahoots with the corrupt local mayor and police.  The analyst for the report who ensured the whitewash was a member of the infamous Council on Foreign Relations, which often serves as chief obfuscator at critical moments in history.

(Excerpted from Chapter 3: The House of Saud & JP Morgan: Big Oil & Their Bankers…)

In 1919 Rothschild’s Business Roundtable launched the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) in London.  The RIIA soon spawned sister organizations around the globe, including the US Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Asian Institute of Pacific Relations, the Canadian Institute of International Affairs, the Brussels-based Institute des Relations Internationales, the Danish Foreign Policy Society, the Indian Council of World Affairs and the Australian Institute of International Affairs. [1]  Other affiliates popped up in France, Turkey, Italy, Yugoslavia and Greece.

The RIIA is a registered charity of the Queen and, according to its annual reports, is funded largely by the oil oligopoly which I have dubbed the Four Horsemen – Exxon Mobil, Chevron Texaco Phillips, BP Amoco ARCO and Royal Dutch/Shell Pennzoil.

Former British Foreign Secretary and Kissinger Associates co-founder Lord Carrington is President of both the RIIA and the Bilderbergers. [2]

The inner circle at RIIA is dominated by Knights of St. John Jerusalem, Knights of Malta, Knights Templar and 33rd Degree Scottish Rite Freemasons.

The Knights of St. John were founded in 1070 and answer directly to the British House of Windsor.  The Catholic Knights of Malta, who answer to the Vatican, retreated to Malta after their bruising Crusades defeat and turned that Mediterranean island into a nexus for drugs/guns/oil smuggling.

The Knights Templar invented insurance, the bond market and the concept of credit cards as they shuttled pilgrims to and fro’ the Middle East during the Crusades. They founded Temple Bar in the center of the City of London, which serves as global administer of British Maritime Law – very quietly the law of the land in many nations, including the US, where if you take an oath in a courtroom adorned with gold fringed American flag, you are bound not by the US Constitution, but by British Maritime Law.

Freemasons are largely unaware underling agents of the British Empire, who sponsor children’s hospitals, put on circuses and appear in all parades. They serve as a ruse for the City of London’s global domination of the “colonies”.

On this side of the pond, the City’s domination over US foreign policy and the State Department is exerted via the Council on Foreign Relations.

Bechtel/Chevron board member and former Reagan Defense Secretary George Pratt Schultz was a long-time current director at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

The CFR was created in 1922 and is headquartered in Harold Pratt House in New York City.  The building was donated by Pratt’s widow, whose husband made his fortune as a partner in John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company.

Schulz is a relative of Mrs. Harold Pratt and replaced CFR member Alexander Haig to become Reagan’s Secretary of State.  The CFR is the US affiliate of the Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA) in London.  Both foreign policy think tanks are loaded with powerful leaders of industry, academia and government.

They hold an enormous amount of sway over US and British foreign policies, providing the glue for the so-called “special relationship” between the US and Britain, whereby the Hessianized US mercenary colony pays for and fights the wars which the City of London both desires and profits from.

CFR publishes Foreign Affairs, a bi-monthly journal on the global political landscape, which is considered by many in the State Department as a kind of “how-to” guide for conducting foreign policy.

Founding members of CFR included brothers John Foster and Allen Dulles, columnist Walter Lippman, former Secretary of State Elihu Root and Colonel Edward Mandell House, who as adviser to President Woodrow Wilson pushed through the Federal Reserve Act, creating a private US central bank owned by a few wealthy banking families.

In 1912, one year before the Federal Reserve was created, House wrote Philip Dru: Administrator.  The book describes a conspiracy within the United States bent on establishing a central bank, a graduated income tax and control of both political parties.

Past funding for CFR has come from international financiers David Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, Bernard Baruch, Jacob Schiff, Otto Kahn and Paul Warburg.  International banks Kuhn Loeb, Lazard Freres, Lehman Brothers and Goldman Sachs – whose directorates interlock and whose families have interbred – heavily influence CFR proceedings. [3]

CFR members are sworn to secrecy regarding goals and operations.  But Admiral Chester Ward,  a longtime CFR member, let slip that the goal of the group is, “to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the United States…Primarily, they want a world banking monopoly from whatever power ends up in the control of global government.”

CFR members have dominated every Administration since FDR and most Presidential candidates come from its ranks.  Adlai Stevenson, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Hubert Humphrey, George McGovern, Walter Mondale, Jimmy Carter, George Bush Sr. and Al Gore are all CFR alumni.

David Rockefeller served as CFR Chairman for some time, giving way to fellow Chase Manhattan chairman/ARAMCO attorney John McCloy.

Nearly every CIA Director since Allen Dulles has been a CFR member. These include Richard Helms, William Colby, George Bush Sr., Bill Casey, William Webster, James Woolsey, John Deutsch and Robert Gates.  Interestingly, current Obama Administration CIA Director Leon Panetta is not a CFR member.

CFR’s Foreign Affairs consistently advocates US military intervention and is the most widely read periodical at the US State Department.  According to both former Deputy Director of the CIA Victor Marchetti and former State Department analyst John Marks, the CFR is the principal constituency of the CIA, since the elite who run the CFR are the ones who own the overseas assets which the CIA and the US military work to guard. [4]

It is through the CFR that the international bankers and the global intelligence community mingle.  The bankers and the spooks share a common goal of keeping the world safe for global monopoly capitalism and often intelligence operatives are recruited from the banking houses where their loyalties to the banking elite have been thoroughly tested.  OSS founding father William “Wild Bill” Donovan had been an agent for JP Morgan.

The revolving door between banking and intelligence swings the other way as well.  The very best CIA, Mossad and MI6 agents are recruited to become better paid private spooks for multinational corporate and banking empires as documented in Jim Hougan’s Spooks: The Haunting of America – Private Use of Secret Agents.  As author Donald Gibson wrote, “By the early 1960’s the CFR, Morgan and Rockefeller interests, and the intelligence community were so extensively inbred as to be virtually one entity.”[5]

The CFR is also the primary incubator for Presidential cabinet positions.  The Nixon Administration had 115 CFR members, while the Clinton Administration included over 100 CFR alumni.  They included CFR President Peter Tarnoff, National Security Adviser Anthony Lake, Vice-President Al Gore, Secretary of State Warren Christopher, Secretary of Defense Les Aspin and his successor William Cohen, Secretary of Treasury Lloyd Bentsen, CIA Director James Woolsey, Colin Powell, Tim Wirth, Winston Lord, Laura Tyson, George Stephenopoulos and Samuel Lewis.

In the fall of 1998 as impeachment loomed over Clinton, the President rushed to New York to try and muster support from his CFR “handlers”.  As publisher John F. McManus stated, “Bill Clinton knows well that he serves as President because the members of the ‘secret society’ to which he belongs chose him and expect him to carry out its plans.”

Current co-chairs at CFR are Carla Hills – Bush Sr. trade representative who was the chief negotiator of NATFA and other key WTO machinations – and Robert Rubin – former Clinton Treasury Secretary and Citigroup chairman.

Other current board members include Madeline Albright, Tom Brokaw, General John Abizaid, Fareed Zakaria, Hyatt heiress Penny Pritzker, Blackstone Group insider J. Tomlinson Hill, Caterpillar chair James W. Owens and Carlyle Group co-founder David Rubenstein. [6]

    No wonder American foreign policy is so f**cked up!

    Thanks again 🙂

    Reblogged this on Today,s Thought.

  4. one can get caught out taking sides, another perspective here on those poor downtrodden students… if this is correct , Frankfurt school would be proud of them.

    ” Calling these people activists and demonstrators is as accurate as calling a car jacker a shop lifter. Or a strong arm robber a petty crook. It’s a lie.

    Those killed were Maoists revolutionaries who saw themselves as the reincarnation of Che Guevara. They were NOT run-of-mill activists and demonstrators.

    They media only mentions–if it mentions it at all–that their mode of transportation was hijacked buses. To go to one of their demonstrations they would forcible steal a bus, often kidnapping the bus driver in the process. I’ll let you figure out what happened to the passengers.

    When I lived in Peru I saw first hand what the Maoist Shinning Path was capable of doing. I also know what other similar groups (like the one in El Salvador) do. It is nothing nice.”

    excellent summaries and writing in your post today…

    • This is the point of the first two paragraphs Pierre, that they were indeed leftists and it was political, rather than drug-related. No matter what you think of their ideology, those “poor downtrodden students” were massacred (not cool) and the CFR-led media lied about why it happened.

  5. You are getting closer to the problem . Let us remind ourselves man receives nothing unless it comes from heaven . God has allowed Satan a head start and this applies to those that worships Lucifer who is the son of Satan and thereby is Satan . The Rothschild’s really do not have any power themselves for they are counting on the dark forces that rule this world . So who is ruling this world or who is in power ? It was a shock to me what I received some sixteen years ago after I got back from London and it goes something like this and not being in detail . As I was sleeping I was awaken by someone calling my name , CARL , carl be careful of those that are in power ! You can imagine what went through my mind but that’s for another time . Anyway before I could react another voice said to the first , does that mean Prince Charles also and the first replied , yes that means Prince Charles also . So I ask you all who is in power ? Since all three Kings of the Windsor’s were put to sleep before their time there is no house of Windsor’s left . The British monarchy (as all monarch’s) are steeped into witchcraft and sorcery as is the legislative branch of this government and has been for sometime . Do you not know people there is but one GOD who is over all , in all and through all . So when you lie you lie before the Holy Ghost , you have lied to God ! Billy Graham was the spiritual leader of the United States and in truth he is not even a spiritual man ! Oh well I’m a elderly man and just like to call myself the revenge of the Windsor’s .

    Extremely informative and valuable article, thanks.
    Side note: If you haven’t been to this site, check it out. No nonsense news on the Mexican Drug cartels.

  7. I don’t think Freemasons are “largely unaware” at least not in the sense of being innocent. Even the lowest ranking lodge boys know who runs their town. The cop who stopped me & my high school girlfriend had us totally busted for beer & weed; all he did was look at my ID and say “tell your uncle I said hello” and then walk away. This was right near my uncle’s house. He knew which brother was my dad and which was my uncle. You don’t go high up in the lodge without being “initiated” in ways that leave no room for innocence. This is how they control society.

  8. The Council on Foreign Relations was formed in 1911 by J.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, and Paul Warburg representing the Rothchild bank. They knew they already controlled the money but had ambitions to control the nature and content of debate in America, so they hired several journalists to decide which were the 25 most influential newspapers in the U.S.. These they bought or bought he editorial boards for. It is vital to note the correct date for the Formation of the CFR because of the ruthless and antisocial nature of their venture n this bid for control of the American psyche. Wkipedia says “1921” as a founding date, which is patently absurd because Congressman Honorable Representative Oscar Callaway submitted into The Congressional Record in 1917 hat the Council on Foreign Relations was formed in 1911 for the purpose for which the author here(Dean Henderson) describes.

  9. Here is just one reference indicating the more accurate description of the start of the CFR. The formation of the CFR in 1911 enabled the concerted onslaught of NWO=OWO + CFR media in overloading Americans for The Fed, IRS, Spanish flu, Jehovaha’s Witnesses door to door(‘End Times’ to the MAX), WWI, and the rest. . To this, add the actual date of Callaway’s entry into The Congressional Record of February,1917.
