Obviously this article is dated, but the information is still useful.
Who's behind the so-called "New World Order"
which President George Bush and his Establishment allies have been promoting?
First things first. It's not really a
"new" idea. The grand design for a New World Order has been in the
works for decades; it was the original premise upon which the ill-fated League
of Nations was conceived and, later, the basis upon which the United Nations was
Only now, however, as a result of the crisis in
the Middle East, have those who have been scheming for a New World Order begun
to talk publicly of their ultimate aim: One World Government.
This is because it has taken them until now to
see their Globalist dream placed within their reach.
A lot of key players in global affairs have
been in the forefront of the drive for a New World Order, but foremost among
them are the members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
As early as 1974 the CFR launched its
"1980s Project" which had as its aim "nothing less than the
creation of a new global political and economic system to replace the existing
one." That is, a New World Order.
This is the assessment of Professors Laurence
H. Shoup and William Minter, writing in their landmark study of the CFR,
"Imperial Brain Trust: The CFR and United States Foreign Policy."
(Monthly Review Press, 1977).
To understand how U.S. foreign policy is
conducted, you have to understand the CFR. Some go so far as to say that the CFR
is "America's secret government." What is the CFR?
Formally headquartered in New York, the CFR's
membership constitutes a wide ranging array of powerful individuals (including
members of the Rockefeller family) who operate in the Rockefeller sphere of
These include major figures in the media,
academia and the corporate, legal and financial worlds. There is also a
significant number of government officials (both elected and appointed) who
serve as CFR members.
According to author Ferdinand Lundberg, writing
The Rockefeller Syndrome (Lyle Stuart, Inc. 1975): "The people associated
with the CFR include just about all who have a direct ownership stake in the
external economic and financial instrumentalities that service the American
"They know long before the average citizen
does when these instrumentalities are being threatened or interfered with. The
maintenance of peace, of course, is important. But there comes times when one
may have to fight for one's vital interests."
As shown by this quote, the CFR plays a major
role in deciding whether America goes to war. Today, as the United States stands
on the brink of catastrophe in the Middle East, it is members of the CFR who are
deciding when and if America should go to war.
The CFR publishes the quarterly journal FOREIGN
AFFAIRS and conducts regular meetings and seminars. Key meetings are strictly
confidential and off the record.
Created in 1921 with Rockefeller family
funding, the CFR emerged as the American branch of the British Royal Institute
on International Affairs (RIIA).
The RIIA was the brainchild of English
financier and imperialist Cecil Rhodes. It was devoted to the ultimate goal of
restoring British hegemony over the United States.
It is this British link that leads many critics
to charge that the CFR is, in effect, the U.S. office of Whitehall (the British
As a consequence, the CFR has never failed to
advance U.S. foreign policy measures that prop up Britain in one fashion or
another: most notable, engineering U.S. intervention into the European Conflict
that evolved into World War II.
It has been this way since the establishment of
the CFR. CFR members, beginning with the Republican administration of Herbert
Hoover, on through the present day in administrations of both parties, have
continuously been appointed to key policy making posts, steering the course of
America’s engagement in world affairs.
Leading figures from within the CFR played the
primary role in creating the UN, the global body that at least under the
so-called New World Order would function as the DEFACT "world
(No surprise, then, that it was the Rockefeller
family itself that donated the land upon which the United Nations headquarters
According to Shoup and Minter, "The
planning of UN can be traced to the 'secret steering committee' established by
Secretary [of State Cordell] Hull in January 1943." All of the members of
this secret committee, with the exception of Hull a Tennessee politician were
members of the CFR.
"They saw Hull regularly to plan, select,
and guide the labors of the [States] Department's Advisory Committee. It was, in
effect, the coordinating agency for all the State Department postwar
These CFR figures "were most responsible
for the final shape of the United Nations."
Today the UN the CFR creation is playing a
pivotal role in President Bush’s design for a New World Order.
The president has cast his war against Iraq as
part and parcel of the plan for a New World Order. Once Saddam has been
vanquished, Bush promises, the New World Order can come to full flower.
However, for the Establishment to successfully
foist its new world order onto the American people, it will first be necessary
for the powers that be to propagate its "party line" to the masses.
The mechanism is there for the CFR to do this.
Although the CFR in Manhattan based, its reach
is coast to coast, and beyond. The CFR has affiliated entities (dozens of them,
in fact) in major cities across the country: Locally prominent figures in
politics, society and academia are invited to "exclusive" membership
in the CFR affiliates.
These entities bring to their forums well known
global figures and conduct policy seminars, which promote the New World Order
propaganda line of the CFR on the local level.
A major part of the Establishment's drive for
the new world order is shaping public opinion this so that the voting public
will accept the internationalist agenda laid forth by the planners behind the
According to one leading CFR member, the
planners of the new world order, "seek a private consensus" on major
issues. "Consensus seeking," he said, "must be a central
The power brokers "will seek to educate
attentive audiences so that public opinion will come to reflect the private
In other words, the CFR power brokers will seek
a consensus among their own particular elite regarding what approaches to take
toward major international issues.
And after such a consensus" is reached,
the power brokers will use their influence to "educate" local elites
(such as those who make up CFR affiliates around the country) as to what is
"best" for the people.
As a result, these influential local groups
will then propagate the CFR's new world order propaganda line "in the
In this way, a small clique (such as those
operating in the Rockefeller CFR sphere of influence) is able to propagate its
views to eager local audiences who then spread globalist, anti-national thinking
in their own communities.
TO THE NEW WORLD ODOR!!!
