MARCO RUBIO, THE ASPEN INSTITUTE, AND THE CFR

NewsWithViews.com

The NWO Establishment: If we can’t get Jeb, well take Rubio

The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men. —Samuel Adams

Marco Rubio Affiliations

The Aspen Institute is sort of an American Bilderberger Group. In addition to the globalist Aspen and Brookings Institutes, there are a staggering number of private groups that shape and command American policy, including the CFR, and Trilateral Commission, etc. Nearly every elected official is influenced by them, and this includes Marco Rubio. The Aspen Institute is largely funded by one world government foundations such as the Carnegie Corporation, The Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Ford Foundation, none of whom have freedom and liberty as their top priorities.

Surely most folks remember that UN Agenda 21 author and promoter, Maurice Strong, was the Director of the Aspen Institute for some years. If you like Smart Growth and the elimination of property rights, you’ll love Agenda 21 and the Aspen Institute.

Aspen Institute named Marco Rubio as one of the top young elected officials to its third class of Aspen-Rodel fellows. The Institute’s Rodel Fellowships in Public Leadership program brings together bipartisan groups of public officials judged to be the rising stars of American politics. Isn’t that just lovely?

Aspen Institute President, Walter Isaacson, said the Rodel Fellows “represent the best hope for America’s future—upcoming leaders committed to working together for the common good.” The “common good” is code for the globalist socialist agenda of destroying free market growth and leveling all the playing fields.

Scroll down in the article to see the list of names including Marco Rubio, along with the photo of Rubio as Aspen Inst. Rodel fellow. [Link]

Walter Isaacson is the former head and CEO of CNN and the Managing Editor of Time Magazine. Aspen participates in the Ethical Globalization Initiative (EGI), headed by former UN official Mary Robinson, who calls the International Criminal Court, which could prosecute and imprison US citizens, “a great legal enterprise.” Isaacson serves on the EGI board, along with global tax supporter, Jeffrey Sachs, an advisor to U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan. George Soros is extremely involved in the Aspen Institute. [Link] Sure doesn’t make me feel warm and cozy. And there you have Marco Rubio…

Marco Rubio and the CFR

The Washington Post reported on Marco Rubio’s speech at the Council on Foreign Relations in May of 2015. He was invited to speak on foreign policy with member Charlie Rose, and was introduced by the president of the CFR, Richard Haass. Link

The American Conservative believes Rubio’s speech was pretty lame, but you can decide for yourself. He stated that America’s role in the world is as a security guarantor. Rubio also claimed as president, he would “use the American power to oppose any violations of international waters, airspace, cyberspace, or outer space. This includes the economic disruption caused when one country invades another, as well as the chaos caused by disruptions in chokepoints such as the South China Sea or the Strait of Hormuz.”

Personally, I do not believe we have any business being the world’s policeman, and neither do I believe the president has the right to use any military power without Congress’s approval.

The New American article on Rubio’s CFR speech, stated, “Were the 2016 election to be a contest between Marco Rubio and Hillary Clinton, the future of U.S. foreign policy would be clear. It would mean a continuation of the same policies that have dominated our nation since the onset of World War II — interventionism, more war, and more casualties.”

Rubio’s Liberal Voting Record

Is it any wonder Rubio has been named an Aspen-Rodel fellow, or invited to speak at the Council on Foreign Relations? Take a look at his voting record and you’ll see why these organizations love Senator Rubio.

Amnesty and Refugees – The Rubio-Schumer Gang of Eight amnesty bill likely would not have passed the Senate had Rubio not been such a prolific supporter. [Link], [Link] He’s now waffling on the fact that he is a great supporter of illegal aliens gaining citizenship.

Senator Rand Paul wanted to restrict the amount of Muslims entering our country, and his amendment would have suspended visas to 30 Muslim countries with Jihadist populations. Rubio, on the other hand stated that he would “hate” to block funding for Obama’s refugees. (Yes they’re Obama’s, they’re certainly not main stream American’s ideas of good immigrants.) Rubio even stated he felt limiting Muslim migration might be unconstitutional. Excuse me lawyer Rubio, but you obviously haven’t read any of our immigration laws lately. Needless to say, Rubio joined the rest of the Ryan moderate (euphemism for socialist) Republicans in voting down Rand Paul’s amendment.

Rubio has been one of the most ardent champions for increasing Muslim migration. The U.S. has admitted roughly 1.5 million migrants from Muslim countries since 9/11 on a permanent lifetime basis. Yet Rubio has sought to grow that number vastly. In 2015, Rubio introduced an immigration bill which would have allowed for an unlimited increase in Muslim migration. [Link]

One wonders if Rubio’s love of amnesty is payback. His grandfather was ordered deported by a judge after flying in from Cuba without a visa. [Link]

Trade Agreements – Remember Ted Cruz voting for Fast Track for the TPP trade agreement? Well guess who cast the deciding 60th vote to give Obama Fast Track?

Yep, it was Marco Rubio!

The entire purpose of fast-track is for Congress to surrender its power to the Executive for six years. Legislative concessions include: control over the content of legislation, the power to fully consider that legislation on the floor, the power to keep debate open until Senate cloture is invoked, and the constitutional requirement that treaties receive a two-thirds vote. Legislation cannot even be amended.

By contrast, without fast-track, Congress retains all of its legislative powers, individual members retain all of their procedural tools, and every single line, jot, and tittle of trade text is publicly available before any congressional action is taken. [Link]

Tell me again how Republicans are the stop gap to Obama’s destruction of America!

Food Stamp Reform – Marco Rubio is almost the only republican to take the democrat’s side on this bill. The bill would have saved taxpayers about 10 billion a year by blocking families with substantial assets from receiving food stamps.

When Rubio served as speaker in the Florida House, he stopped bills from coming to the floor that would have deported illegal immigrants in state prisons and that would have denied food stamps to illegal immigrants.

He even stopped a bipartisan proposal that would have allowed the deportation of about 5,000 illegal immigrants in Florida prisons, provided they had served half their sentence and agreed to be deported. Similar legislation saved $141 million and $13 million in prison costs in New York and Arizona.

Cap and Trade – As Florida speaker, Marco Rubio aggressively pushed for Florida to adapt to the inevitable federal “cap and trade program.” Cap and trade is an environmental system that hardcore liberals including former Vice President Al Gore support. A federal cap and trade program would be centered around a carbon tax.

Watch Rubio Back Cap and Trade:

Worst Attendance Record – Rubio’s attendance record for votes is one of the worst in Senate history. His seat is regularly empty for floor votes, committee meetings and intelligence briefings. He even missed the vote on Obama’s Omnibus bill which he probably would have voted for anyway, although he stated the outcome was predetermined.

That outrageous $1.1 Trillion Omnibus Bill funds the most horrendous programs, which also locks in huge spending increases!

funds entirely Obama’s 2012 executive amnesty for “DREAMers”—or illegal immigrants who came to the country as minors and has granted around 700,000 illegal aliens with work permits, as well as the ability to receive tax credits and federal entitlement programs
funds sanctuary cities (remember Kathryn Steinle)
funds all refugee programs
funds illegal alien resettlement
quadruples H-2B foreign worker visas
funds the release of criminal aliens
funds tax credits for illegal aliens, and much more

Political Influence

While the Majority Whip of Florida House, Rubio used his official position to urge state regulators to grant a real estate license to his brother-in-law, a convicted cocaine trafficker who had been released from prison 20 months earlier, according to records obtained by The Washington Post. [Link]

Marco Rubio’s brother-in-law was the ‘front man’ for a multi-million dollar cocaine-smuggling ring headed by a drug kingpin who ran the operation from an exotic animal sanctuary, it has been revealed.

Orlando Cicilia was arrested for his part in the illicit operation in 1987 during Miami’s narcotics heyday when Republican presidential hopeful Rubio was just 16. Cicilia, 58, who is now working as a real estate agent, served just 12 years in prison despite being sentenced to 35 for his part in the scheme.

Conclusion

American Bridge put out a Marco Rubio Report in 2012. It is 500 pages long, but tells a great deal about Rubio. Take a gander at it…really telling.

It appears as though we have a socialist Democrat running as a conservative on the GOP ticket….again.

Stay tuned, there’s more to come, soon.

Trump catches attention of CFR, Bilderberg, Trilateral

5BY  Jon Rappoport FOR NOMOREFAKENEWS.COM

The powerful Globalist players at the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, and the Trilateral Commission are certainly watching the presidential campaign of Donald Trump.

Trump has already made statements about immigration they find troubling. They may or may not be taking Trump’s presidential run seriously. They may or may not view him as an inconsequential blowhard, a shoot-from-the-hip cowboy who forgets today what he said yesterday—but today the New York Times has made reference to Trump in a way that will make these Globalist heavy hitters pause and blink while drinking their morning coffee (Here in “As Stock Market Plunges, Donald Trump Takes a Worldview” by Alan Rappeport):

“Mr. Trump has said that bad trade deals with China and Mexico are to blame for a sluggish American economy and weak job creation. He has promised to make ‘great’ deals with other countries to protect American workers and has threatened to raise taxes on imports to the United States to bolster domestic production.”

It’s the last part that rings alarm bells and shoots firecrackers into the sky:
“[Trump] has threatened to raise taxes on imports to the United States to bolster domestic production.”

Taxes on imports. Also known as tariffs.

Every significant trade-treaty negotiated since 1945 has been aimed at lowering or eliminating tariffs, in order to establish Globalist “free trade.”

Treaties like GATT, NAFTA, CAFTA, for example; as well as the current TPP and its cousins.

Free trade is code for: mega-corporations and banks can roam the planet and set up shop anywhere they please. They can bankroll and build production facilities, produce cheap goods, and sell them anywhere in the world without paying tariffs.

Tariffs would make that whole operation useless. It would defeat mega-corporate greed and ambition internationally.

“We’ve got these factories making gizmos in East Nowhere, we’re paying workers four cents an hour, we’ve got no environmental/health regs and rules that would raise production costs, there are no worker unions, and we’ve therefore got a big edge on our smaller competitors, because we can ship these gizmos anywhere in the world and sell them cheaper than they can, and all of this is possible because we pay no tariffs. If there were stiff tariffs, we’d have to shut down the whole scene, pack our bags, and leave…”

Globalism, at one level, is all about erasing tariffs.

Whether in a momentary fit, or by serious intent, Trump has crossed swords with the Globalists.

President Nixon tried that for a few moments in the early 1970s, and betrayed his main sponsor, David Rockefeller. Nixon erected a few tariffs to save American-based companies.

Rockefeller was and is Globalism personified.

Soon, Nixon found himself on a helicopter heading away from the White House for the last time.

Trump might want to think about pumping up his security detail.

He’s just stumbled into the Twilight Zone where money makes money for money making money. Trump $$$ is nothing compared with Globalist $$$.

He’s just pulled the pin on a quiescent grenade in the world of mainstream media, where the subject of tariffs is a no-no.

“Reggie, Klaus here. I was just reading the Times this morning. Did you see the reference to Donald Trump? Tariffs? Maybe we should take a second look at this lunatic. If he presses forward with the idea of protecting American businesses, and it catches on, and people figure out what he’s saying…if he figures out what he’s saying…we could have a problem. If all sorts of business people—I don’t mean people like us—but ordinary business people see a chance to come back to life…with tariffs to protect them…Trump’s campaign could take on a new dimension. We’d have to do whatever it takes to stop it…”

Yes, if the American people figure out that the new normal economy, as miserable as it actually is, is linked like a lock and key to the Globalist plan; if the American people figure out that no recent American president, including Obama, had any ambition whatsoever to lift up the American economy; that all these presidents are liars of the first order; something might happen.
Something might change.

If Trump, jumping and leaping and cavorting, suddenly grabs on to that secret and that issue, and tells the American people that their jobs really disappeared because of Globalist trade deals and no-tariffs…and he keeps growling and slathering and foaming…

He’s definitely caught the attention of the big-time Globalists at the CFR, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderberg Group.

Note to The Donald: Step up your security, and watch all the bankers you do business with very carefully. They will try to find a way to cut you off at the knees. You just stumbled into the Globalists’ private game preserve. They don’t like that shit.

Conservatism: When the Rhetoric Doesn’t Match the Record

My comments:  I know Jack McManus personally and have found him to be the most upstanding gentleman who is fighting to save our country.  His book, WILLIAM F. BUCKLEY, PIED PIPER FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT is probably one of the finest books I’ve ever read explaining what happened to old right Christian Constitutional Conservatives.  Buckley and men like Irving Kristol, Bill Kristol’s father, are responsible for destroying true Constitutionalists.  It is why we see the Republicans of today doing nothing to save the Republic.  I would greatly suggest buying this very important referenced and documented book, as well as buying several extra copies to give as Christmas gifts.  This is a superb read, and you will finally understand what has happened and why the Republicans of today are really Trotskyites.  Forget calling them RINOs, that’s too nice, they truly are Trotskyites.

Conservatism: When the Rhetoric Doesn’t Match the Record
adapted from the “William F. Buckley, Jr., Pied Piper for the Establishment” book by JBS President John F. McManus

When William F. Buckley, Jr., came onto the scene in the 1950s, the word “conservatism” could have been equated with “Americanism.” Conservatives wanted to preserve those institutions and principles that made America great and good. They cherished both the U.S. Constitution and traditional morality. They wanted government to protect them from evil-doers but not regulate their lives or provide them with handouts.

But over the past half century, the word “conservatism” has lost its former meaning. These days mainstream conservatives want to interject the U.S. government into everything from massively funding the nation’s schools to policing the world. And many conservatives support them.

What happened is that most conservatives were led astray. They were deceived, not by overt liberalism, but by counterfeit conservatism. And the liberal Establishment’s principal pied piper — who hit just enough of the right notes to captivate conservatives — was William F. Buckley.

The book, “William F. Buckley, Jr.: Pied Piper for the Establishment” examines the following details of Buckley’s life:

  • connections to the Council on Foreign Relations, the CIA, and Yale’s Skull & Bones
  • selection of ex-Communists, Trotskyites, and CIA veterans to staff National Review
  • failed attempt to destroy The John Birch Society
  • promotion of liberal causes, including abortion, drugs, homosexuality, and pornography.

Buckley set the stage for younger pied pipers who would lead unwitting conservatives even further astray. But by understanding how Buckley fooled at least two generations, today’s conservatives should be all the wiser. Not only should they learn from the past to avoid being fooled again, but they should begin the process of undoing the damage already done. This book provides vital information on both scores. Purchase today to learn more of the foundations of the neo-conservative movement!

If the record doesn’t match the rhetoric, or if the meaning of words need to evolve to match the actions of today’s conservatives, then a critical eye must be cast to those leaders and to their intent.

Council On Foreign Relations

Written by James Perloff for THE NEW AMERICAN MAGAZINE
During his presidential campaign, Barack Obama consistently promised Americans “change.” Such promises aren’t new to the voting public.

When Jimmy Carter ran for president, he said: “The people of this country know from bitter experience that we are not going to get … changes merely by shifting around the same group of insiders.” And top Carter aide Hamilton Jordan promised: “If, after the inauguration, you find a Cy Vance as Secretary of State and Zbigniew Brzezinski as head of National Security, then I would say we failed. And I’d quit.” Yet Carter selected Vance as Secretary of State and Brzezinski as National Security Adviser; the “same group of insiders” had been shifted around; and Jordan did not quit.
Carter’s administration was dominated by members of the Trilateral Commission, which had been founded by Brzezinski and David Rockefeller. In 1980, when Ronald Reagan was campaigning against Carter, he protested:
I don’t believe that the Trilateral Commission is a conspiratorial group, but I do think its interests are devoted to international banking, multinational corporations, and so forth. I don’t think that any Administration of the U.S. Government should have the top nineteen positions filled by people from any one group or organization representing one viewpoint. No, I would go in a different direction.
Yet after his election, President Reagan picked 10 Trilateralists for his transition team, and included in his administration such Trilateralists as Vice President George Bush, Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger, U.S. Trade Representative William Brock, and Fed Chairman Paul Volcker. Yet the entire North American membership of the Trilateral Commission has never numbered much over 100.
The reason that presidential candidates’ promises of “change” go largely unfulfilled once in office: they draw their top personnel from the same establishment groups — of which the Trilateral Commission is only one.
Chief among these groups is the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the most visible manifestation of what some have called the American establishment. Members of the council have dominated the administrations of every president since Franklin D. Roosevelt, at the cabinet and sub-cabinet level. It does not matter whether the president is a Democrat or Republican. As we will later see, Barack Obama is no exception to CFR influence.
Power Behind the Throne
In theory, America’s government is supposed to be “of the people, by the people, for the people.” While this concept rang true in early America, and many individuals still trust in it, the last century has seen the reality of power increasingly shift from the people to an establishment rooted in banking, Wall Street, and powerful multinational corporations. Syndicated columnist Edith Kermit Roosevelt, granddaughter of Teddy Roosevelt, explained:
The word “Establishment” is a general term for the power elite in international finance, business, the professions and government, largely from the northeast, who wield most of the power regardless of who is in the White House. Most people are unaware of the existence of this “legitimate Mafia.” Yet the power of the Establishment makes itself felt from the professor who seeks a foundation grant, to the candidate for a cabinet post or State Department job. It affects the nation’s policies in almost every area.
Roosevelt added that this group’s goal is “a One World Socialist state governed by ‘experts’ like themselves.”
David Rockefeller, the longtime chairman (and now chairman emeritus) of the CFR, acknowledged the role of the establishment in trying to lead America in the one-world direction in his 2002 book Memoirs:
For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as “internationalists” and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.
Two major means the establishment employs for controlling government policy: (1) through its influence within the two major parties and the mass media, it can usually assure that both the Republican and Democratic presidential candidates will be its own hand-picked men; (2) by stacking presidential cabinets with CFR members at key positions — especially those involving defense, finance, foreign policy, and national security — it can assure that America will move in the direction it wants. Since the council’s founding in 1921, 21 secretaries of defense or war, 19 secretaries of the treasury, 17 secretaries of state, and 15 CIA directors have hailed from the Council on Foreign Relations.
Background
Prior to the CFR’s founding, what Congressman Charles Lindbergh, Sr. (the father of the famous aviator) called the “Money Trust” — a cabal of international bankers including the houses of Rockefeller, Morgan, and Rothschild — conspired to create the Federal Reserve System. Their agents, such as Paul Warburg and Benjamin Strong, who had secretly planned the Fed at a nine-day meeting on Jekyll Island, were then put in charge of the system itself. This gave them control of American interest rates, and, by virtue of this, control of the stock market, as well as the capacity to have the U.S. government spend without limit by having the Fed create money from nothing. The result has been decades of inflation and skyrocketing national debt. (For full details, see the April 13, 2009 New American or Our Monetary Mayhem Began With the Fed.)
Not just an accumulation of wealth, but a consolidation of political power was involved. The Money Trust had backed Woodrow Wilson in the presidential elections, and then controlled him through their front man, Edward Mandell House, who lived in the White House. The trust recognized how the power of government could be used to advance their own interests.
Wilson, surrounded by the bankers, traveled to the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, which was settling the aftermath of World War I. His chief proposal there, of course, was the League of Nations — a first step toward world government. However, although the League was established by the Versailles Treaty, the United States did not join because the Senate refused to ratify the treaty.
In response to this rejection, the bankers’ circle, still in Paris, held a series of meetings and proposed to establish a new organization in the United States, whose purpose would be to lead America into the League. This organization was incorporated in New York City two years later as the Council on Foreign Relations.
Architects of a New World Order
The CFR’s goal was formation of an incrementally stronger world government. Admiral Chester Ward, former Judge Advocate of the U.S. Navy, was a CFR member for 16 years before resigning in disgust. He stated: “The main purpose of the Council on Foreign Relations is promoting the disarmament of U.S. sovereignty and national independence, and submergence into an all-powerful one-world government.”
After World War II, the League’s successor, the United Nations, was born. Contrary to what the public is commonly told, the UN was not founded by nations who had tired of war. The UN was conceived by a group of CFR members in the State Department calling themselves the Informal Agenda Group. They drafted the original proposal for the UN, and secured the approval of President Roosevelt, who then made establishing the UN his highest postwar priority. When the UN held its founding meeting in San Francisco in 1945, 47 of the American delegates were CFR members.
Though the UN was not initially set up as a world government, the intent was that it would develop into one over time. John Foster Dulles (CFR), an American delegate to the UN founding meeting who later became Secretary of State under Eisenhower, acknowledged as much in his book War or Peace: “The United Nations represents not a final stage in the development of world order, but only a primitive stage. Therefore its primary task is to create the conditions which will make possible a more highly developed organization.”
Two other postwar institutions, the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, were technically created at the 1944 Bretton Woods Conference. But the initial planning was done by the CFR’s Economic and Finance Group, part of their wartime War and Peace Studies Project. The World Bank and IMF act as a loan-guarantee scheme for multinational banks. When a loan to a foreign country goes awry, the World Bank and IMF step in with taxpayer money, ensuring that the private banks continue to receive interest payments. Furthermore, the World Bank and IMF dictate conditions to the countries receiving bailouts, thus giving the bankers a measure of political control over indebted nations.
Despite what Americans were told, the postwar Marshall Plan was not invented by General George Marshall, though he did announce it in a 1947 Harvard commencement speech. The Marshall Plan was dreamed up at a CFR study group with David Rockefeller as its secretary. Marshall was simply selected to announce the plan because, as a general, he would be perceived as politically neutral and help garner bipartisan congressional support for the plan. Unknown to the public, Marshall Plan funds were circuitously rerouted by John J. McCloy — appointed U.S. High Commissioner to Germany — to Jean Monnet, founder of the Common Market, which evolved into today’s European Union, a microcosm of world government. McCloy returned home to become chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations in 1953.
The tragic Vietnam War was run almost entirely by CFR members. William P. Bundy (CFR) drafted the Tonkin Gulf Resolution before the now-discredited Tonkin Gulf Incident even took place. Bundy’s father-in-law, Dean Acheson (CFR), as leader of a senior team of advisers nicknamed “the Wise Men,” persuaded Lyndon Baines Johnson to dramatically escalate the war beginning in 1965. And Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara (CFR) helped develop the “rules of engagement” (e.g., preventing the Air Force from attacking critical targets) that guaranteed the war’s disastrous prolongation. This generated a huge slide to the left among American college students. When Bundy left the State Department, David Rockefeller appointed him editor of the CFR’s journal Foreign Affairs. And McNamara, one of the leading architects of the Vietnam War debacle, became president of the World Bank.
Broadening the Scheme
The CFR is not a uniquely American phenomenon. It has counterpart organizations throughout the world — e.g., the Royal Institute of International Affairs in England, the French Institute of International Relations, etc.
To help coordinate policy on an international scale, CFR chairman David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski founded the Trilateral Commission in 1973. “Trilateral” refers to the coordination of three global regions: North America, Europe, and Asia. The commission’s meetings allow the gathering together of heads of state, banks, multinational corporations, and media. Republican Senator Barry Goldwater called the commission “David Rockefeller’s newest cabal,” and said, “It is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States.” The commission, like the annual secretive meetings of the Bilderbergers and the notorious Bohemian Grove, enables the international power elite to privately assemble and plan our destiny.
Jimmy Carter was a member of the commission, hand-picked to be president after meeting with Brzezinski and Rockefeller at the latter’s Tarrytown, New York, estate. Carter filled his administration with CFR members and Trilateralists. Indeed, Brzezinski noted in his memoirs that “all the key foreign policy decision makers of the Carter Administration had previously served in the Trilateral Commission.” Carter then embarked on a destructive course of foreign policy that included betraying the Shah of Iran, leading to the installment of Ayatollah Khomeini and the U.S. hostage crisis; betraying President Anastasio Somoza of Nicaragua, resulting in a Marxist dictatorship under the Sandinistas; and betraying Taiwan in order to recognize Communist China — a move previously set up by Richard Nixon’s overtures to China, dictated by his own CFR advisers.
Under Bill Clinton (a CFR member who selected 12 CFR members for his cabinet), the United States enacted NAFTA, an economic alliance with Mexico and Canada. This arrangement was created by the establishment, not by the American people, who did not suspect the game being played on them. Not only did NAFTA swamp us with cheap, job-destroying imports, but it was designed to be the foundation for a continental economic union leading to political union. Robert Pastor (CFR), a key architect of North American integration, acknowledged in the January/February 2004 issue of Foreign Affairs: “NAFTA was merely the first draft of an economic constitution for North America.” And Andrew Reding of the World Policy Institute said: “NAFTA will signal the formation, however tentatively, of a new political unit — North America. With economic integration will come political integration. By whatever name, this is an incipient form of international government. Following the lead of the Europeans, North Americans should begin considering formation of a continental parliament.” [Emphasis added.]
A similar stratagem had been used against the peoples of Europe — by first deceptively hooking them into an “economic” alliance called the Common Market, which then, requiring common laws to regulate trade, transformed via a series of steps into the European Union, the super-national government of Europe that is swallowing up national sovereignty.
Following the initial step enacted under Clinton, President George W. Bush, whose father was a CFR director, moved toward politicizing the NAFTA alliance. On March 23, 2005, he met Mexican President Vicente Fox and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin to launch the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), the rudiments of a North American Union. CNN’s Lou Dobbs said of it: “President Bush signed a formal agreement that will end the United States as we know it.”
Furthermore, regional alliances such as the European Union and proposed North American Union are not ends, but only steppingstones to world government. As CFR/Trilateralist Zbigniew Brzezinski stated: “We cannot leap into world government in one quick step. The precondition for genuine globalization is progressive regionalization.”
In furtherance of this, on April 30, 2007, President Bush stood at the White House beside Angela Merkel, president of the European Council, and José Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission, and announced the signing of a new agreement to “strengthen transatlantic economic integration.” It called for “joint work in the areas of regulatory cooperation, financial markets, trade and transport security, innovation and technological development, intellectual property rights, energy, investment, competition, services, and government procurement,” and various other steps toward economic integration. But as usual, “economic integration” is the predecessor of political integration. CFR members have dreamed of a political union between the United States and Europe since the 1950s, when the CFR-dominated Atlantic Union Committee promoted a merger they called “Atlantica.”
Enter Obama
Candidate Barack Obama revealed he would proceed with the Bush initiatives. In a speech in Berlin on July 24, 2008, he stated:
That is why the greatest danger of all is to allow new walls to divide us from one another. The walls between old allies on either side of the Atlantic cannot stand. The walls between the countries with the most and those with the least cannot stand. The walls between races and tribes; natives and immigrants; Christian and Muslim and Jew cannot stand. These now are the walls we must tear down…. Yes, there have been differences between America and Europe. No doubt, there will be differences in the future. But the burdens of global citizenship continue to bind us together…. In this new century, Americans and Europeans alike will be required to do more — not less. Partnership and cooperation among nations is not a choice; it is the one way, the only way, to protect our common security and advance our common humanity.
Obama had only been president for a little over two months when he traveled to Europe for a series of meetings with European leaders. He attended the G20 Summit, which ended with a tentative agreement to launch a new global financial system, using as the rationale for this major step toward global government the recent Fed- and government-spawned financial meltdown.
Henry Kissinger — foreign policy mouthpiece of the establishment for four decades — wrote an article for the January 12, 2009 issue of the International Herald Tribune entitled “The Chance for a New World Order.” He stated:
As the new U.S. administration prepares to take office amid grave financial and international crises, it may seem counterintuitive to argue that the very unsettled nature of the international system generates a unique opportunity for creative diplomacy….
Even the most affluent countries will confront shrinking resources. Each will have to redefine its national priorities. An international order will emerge if a system of compatible priorities comes into being….
The alternative to a new international order is chaos.
Kissinger also stated on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street”: “The president-elect is coming into office at a moment when there is upheaval in many parts of the world simultaneously…. His task will be to develop an overall strategy for America in this period when, really, a new world order can be created. It’s a great opportunity, it isn’t just a crisis.”
Past statements reveal that the establishment wants a single currency for the world, just as the EU has consolidated its currencies into the “euro.” As far back as the 1944 Bretton Woods Conference, John Maynard Keynes proposed a world currency he dubbed bancor. Richard L. Gardner (CFR) wrote in the Fall 1984 Foreign Affairs: “I suggest a radical alternative scheme for the next century: the creation of common currency for all the industrial democracies and a joint Bank of Issue to determine that Monetary Policy.”
In March of this year, Obama and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown met with reporters at the White House. Brown announced that “there is the possibility in the next few months of a global new deal that will involve all the countries of the world in sorting out and cleaning up the banking system.” Obama added that
Globalization can be an enormous force for good…. But what is also true is … we still have a 1930s regulatory system in place in most countries designed from the last great crisis, that we’ve got to update our institutions, our regulatory frameworks, so that the power of globalization is channeled for the benefit of ordinary men and women.
If trends continue, however, the changes can be expected to benefit a tiny handful of the global elite, not “ordinary men and women.” Further evidence that Obama’s administration will simply continue the globalist agenda is indicated by his appointments.
CFR Domination Continues
During his campaign, Obama selected the ubiquitous Zbigniew Brzezinski (CFR), promoter of the “regional” approach to world government, as one of his top foreign policy advisors. Obama called Brzezinski “one of our more outstanding thinkers” and “somebody I have learned an immense amount from.” Presumably Brzezinski’s teachings included the world government he advocates.
For Treasury Secretary, Obama chose Timothy Geithner: Senior Fellow in International Economics at the CFR, Bilderberger, former head of the New York Federal Reserve, and former employee of both the IMF and Kissinger Associates. One doesn’t get more establishment than that! It is Geithner who is managing the bailout of Wall Street with taxpayer dollars. Assisting Geithner at Treasury in overseeing the auto industry bailout is fellow CFR member Stephen Rattner.
For Director of the National Economic Council — a U.S. government agency created by a Bill Clinton executive order — Obama selected Lawrence Summers (CFR, Bilderberger). Former Chief Economist at the World Bank, his last position was at the investment firm of D. E. Shaw & Co, where he earned $5.2 million in one year while working one day per week. Henry Kissinger had said Summers should “be given a White House post in which he was charged with shooting down or fixing bad ideas.”
For Defense Secretary, Obama elected to continue with Bush pick Robert Gates (CFR, Bilderberger). During the Carter administration, Gates served as a special assistant to Zbigniew Brzezinski. In 2004, he co-chaired a CFR Task Force on Iran with Brzezinski, who lauded Gates in Time in 2008. Joining Gates in the Defense Department are fellow CFR members Michele Flournoy (Under Secretary of Defense for Policy), Jeh C. Johnson (Defense Department General Counsel), and Kathleen Hicks (Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Strategy, Plans and Forces).
For Secretary of State, Obama chose Hillary Clinton, who has attended the top-secret Bilderberger meetings. Hillary is not a CFR member, but husband Bill is, and her State Department is laden with CFR members, including James B. Steinberg (Deputy Secretary of State), William J. Burns (Under Secretary for Political Affairs), Susan Rice (U.S. Ambassador to the UN), Jacob J. Lew (Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources), Todd Stern (Special Envoy for Climate Change), and many others.
The Department of Homeland Security, which many Americans fear may turn our country into an Orwellian surveillance society, was conceived before 9/11 by a task force called the U.S. Commission on National Security, nine of whose 12 members belonged to the CFR. The administration of the department under Obama is particularly heavy with CFR members, including Janet Napolitano (Secretary), Jane Holl Lute (Deputy Secretary), Juliette Kayyem (Assistant Secretary, Office of Intergovernmental Programs), and Alan Bersin (Assistant Secretary, Office of International Affairs).
Thus the CFR continues to dominate our government’s key areas: finance, defense, foreign policy, and security. To this may be added various other Obama CFR appointees, such as Mona Sutphen (White House Deputy Chief of Staff), Paul Volcker (Chairman, Economic Recovery Advisory Board), Peter Cowhey, (Senior Counsel, Office of U.S. Trade Representative), and Eric Shinseki (Secretary of Veterans Affairs).
The Future
The idea that Barack Obama became president from a “grass-roots” movement is illusory. American government policy continues to be largely dictated by the rich and the few. This is generally unknown to the public — not because it is a bizarre conspiracy theory, but because the same power elite who run our government, mega-banks, and multinational corporations also run the major media, as an inspection of the CFR membership roster would reveal.
Membership in the CFR, of course, is not an automatic condemnation. A few people are added as “window dressing” to give the group distinction and a veneer of diversity. An example is movie star Angelina Jolie. No one suspects Jolie knows much about foreign affairs or is a conspirator for world government. But within the CFR are hardcore globalists who, linked with their foreign counterparts through the Bilderbergers and Trilateral Commission, head the drive for one-world government.
Though numerically small (less than 1,000 members during the Kennedy years, less than 4,500 today), this organization has dominated every administration for over seven decades.
As long as the CFR controls our government, we can anticipate more of the same: diminishing national sovereignty; free flow of immigration (which confuses national identity and weakens national loyalties); increasing jobs losses through multinational trade agreements; further internationalization of law (Law of the Sea Treaty, Kyoto Protocol, World Court, global taxation, etc.); increasing loss of freedoms in a “surveillance society”; progressive organization of the United States, Mexico, and Canada into a North American Union; and ultimately, broader merger into a world government where all power will be concentrated in the hands of the elite.
Eternal vigilance continues to be the price of freedom.

Americans Unwittingly Elect Terrorists to Congress?

 

 

debt and politicians

I truly believe that Politicians and any other people responsible for placing America’s finances into such chaos as to make us vulnerable to strong arming by foreign Governments, and specifically Red China are Terrorists. America is deep in debt to China and that has empowered the Chinese to push us and test us. Internet attacks, conflicts in Trade, The current debacle in the S. China Seas – And there is nothing we can do to fight back as WE OWE them TRILLIONS of $.

The folks who put us in that position, all who are still living, need to be rounded up and convicted for their financial crimes against America – I suppose that’s just one mans opinion. But it’s my story, and I am sticking to it!

Rubio Promotes Interventionist Foreign Policy In Speech at the CFR

Written by  for THE NEW AMERICAN MAGAZINE

Speaking before the internationalist Council on Foreign Relations in New York on May 13, senator and presidential candidate Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) defended “America’s role as a security guarantor” for the world. While denying that he advocated making the United States “the world’s policeman,” Rubio said that America should “ “convene the world to take action” during international crises.”

RUBBARD

Speaking before the internationalist Council on Foreign Relations in New York on May 13, senator and presidential candidate Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) defended “America’s role as a security guarantor” for the world. While denying that he advocated making the United States “the world’s policeman,” Rubio said that America should “convene the world to take action” during international crises.

Senator Rubio made it clear that he advocated using U.S. military power beyond the mandate given to the president as commander-in-chief, to the federal government (in general) to “protect each [state] against invasion,” or even to Congress, to “repel invasions,” “define and punish piracies and felonies committed on the high seas,” and to “declare war.” Each of these actions presumes cooperation between the president and Congress to defend American interests, not the interests of the world. He said:

As president, I will use American power to oppose any violations of international waters, airspace, cyberspace, or outer space. This includes the economic disruption caused when one country invades another, as well as the chaos caused by disruptions in chokepoints such as the South China Sea or the Strait of Hormuz.

The above statement not only indicates that, despite his denials, Rubio would use the U.S. military as “the world’s policeman,” but by failing to mention Congress in his game plan, apparently would assume unilateral presidential power to do so.

Rubio approvingly summarized U.S. foreign policy in recent years as “a passionate defense of human rights, the strong support of democratic principles, and the protection of the sovereignty of our allies.”

The Constitution is clear that the obligation of the federal government is to “guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and [to] … protect each of them against invasion.” It says nothing about supporting “democratic principles” (which are far different than a republican form of government) or about protecting “the sovereignty of our allies.”

Rubio, however, sees a different mission for the United States, stating that “vulnerable nations still depend on us to deter aggression from their larger neighbors.”

George Washington, our first president and president at the 1787 convention where our Constitution was drafted, strenuously opposed involving the United States in defending allies instead of our own interests. In his oft-quoted “Farewell Address,” Washington stated, “It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.”

Rubio lamented that the interventionist foreign policy he champions has been “replaced by, at best, caution, and at worst, outright willingness to betray those values for the expediency of negotiations with repressive regimes.”

At the time Washington delivered his Farewell Address (1796) France was still under the thumb of the bloody French revolutionists, who could have given the worst of today’s tyrants a lesson in repression. France’s “republican” government that year put down a peasants’ revolt in Vendée in such brutal fashion that it has been described as genocide.

Yet, though Washington (as expressed in his 1793 Proclamation of Neutrality) had refused to ally himself with France in its war against Great Britain, the United States did recognize the new government and maintained diplomatic relations with France.

By so doing, Washington was practicing the advice he gave in his Farewell Address: “Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all.”

Though the CFR’s primary interests are related to foreign policy, Rubio also addressed other topics. In what CNN described as “a knock on GOP presidential opponent Rand Paul, who is working to reign in government surveillance programs and opposes extending the PATRIOT Act.” Rubio asserted that “we cannot let politics cloud the importance of this issue.” He stated:

A strong military also means a strong intelligence community, equipped with all the tools it needs to defend the homeland from extremism both home-grown and foreign-trained. And key to this will be extending section 215 of the Patriot Act. We cannot let politics cloud the importance of this issue. We must never find ourselves looking back after a terrorist attack and saying: We could have done more to save American lives.

The National Security Agency (NSA) has used Section 215 of the Patriot Act to justify its bulk collection of U.S. phone records, but this section is set to expire on May 31. New legislation, the USA Freedom Act, which passed the House by 338-88 on May 13, purports to limit those powers, but does so only modestly and extends some portions of Section 215 for five more years. For this reason, it would not be a surprise if Paul again opposes the bill when it comes to the Senate, as he did last year. Paul favors not just partial limitations of the NSA’s surveillance powers justified by the Patriot Act, but elimination of them.

If Rubio sought a sympathetic venue to outline his interventionist foreign policy, he could hardly have done better than the CFR. Founded in 1921 by a group tasked several years earlier by President Woodrow Wilson to formulate new U.S. foreign policy after World War I, a major impetus for those founding the CFR was the rejection of the Treaty of Versailles that provided for the League of Nations by the Senate on November 19, 1919. These internationalists were determined to counter the perceived “isolationism” of those who had rejected the treaty and the league, and usher in a new era of interventionist U.S. foreign policy.

Within a decade, CFR members had begun to dominate the State Department, and all but a few secretaries of state from the Roosevelt administration until our present time have been CFR members. Secretary of State John Kerry is not a CFR member, but his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, is. Presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is not a member, but her husband, Bill, and daughter, Chelsea, are both members. The administration of George W. Bush, under which the United States invaded Iraq, was dominated by CFR members: Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of State and National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of State Colin Powell, and Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

The most notable characteristic of CFR influence on presidential administrations is an interventionist foreign policy that had led to U.S. involvement in a succession of wars, including World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, and the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq. These wars have produced approximately half a million U.S. battle deaths.

Senator Rubio is not a member of the CFR, but he is certainly on good terms with the organization and shares their outlook. His picture appeared in the 2012 CFR annual report and he prefaced his talk on May 13 with these words: “It is an honor to be back at the Council on Foreign Relations, and — I appreciate very much the opportunity to address you here today.”

Were the 2016 election to be a contest between Marco Rubio and Hillary Clinton, the future of U.S. foreign policy would be clear. It would mean a continuation of the same policies that have dominated our nation since the onset of World War II — interventionism, more war, and more casualties.

Who is Grover Norquist? Part 1

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” Marcus Cicero

I recently finished Jack Abramoff’s book, Capitol Punishment. Link Abramoff is a long time member of the secretive Council for National Policy (CNP) which I’ve often mentioned in previous articles. Link I found it interesting that throughout the book, Jack’s friends and co-workers were also CNP members; mentioned were Ralph Reed, Howard Phillips, Dick Armey, Tom DeLay, and Grover Norquist. According to an investigative report from the Senate Indian Affairs Committee on the Jack Abramoff scandal, released in June 2006, Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) served as a “conduit” for funds that flowed from Abramoff’s clients to finance grass-roots lobbying campaigns. Records show that donations from the Choctaw and Kickapoo tribes to ATR were coordinated in part by Abramoff, and in some cases preceded meetings between the tribes and the White House. Abramoff and Norquist are long time friends and in their youth they were partners in College Republicans.

Conservatives Gather For Annual CPAC Convention

At the end of the book, Abramoff states, “In my view, only the creation of a new organization dedicated to a serious agenda of reform can push the legislative changes which must be enacted to clean up our system. The organization should be modeled like the effective and powerful group Grover built, Americans for Tax Reform, and hold Congressional feet to the fire in the same forceful way ATR does it.” 

I read Abramoff’s final statement and I wanted to scream! Obviously he learned nothing during his stint in prison! Remember the words of Clinton’s mentor, Carroll Quigley, professor of history at Georgetown University and author of the 1966 book, Tragedy and Hope. “The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, 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. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.” 

Abramoff never mentioned anything in his book about Norquist’s membership in either the Council for National Policy nor the Council on Foreign Relations. Link In Carroll Quigley’s Tragedy and Hope, he said this about the CFR, “The Council on Foreign Relations is the American branch of a society which originated in England … [and] … believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established.” 

The Real Grover Norquist 

Grover Glenn Norquist (born October 19, 1956) is an American lobbyist, claims to be a conservative activist, and is founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform. He grew up in Weston, Massachusetts and graduated in 1974 from Harvard where he obtained both a B.A. and an M.B.A.

Norquist is a member of the Board of Directors of the National Rifle Association and in 2010, he joined the advisory board of GOProud, an organization of conservative gay Republicans. He is also on the boards of the Hispanic Leadership Fund, the Indian-American Republican Caucus, and ParentalRights.org, an organization that wishes to add a Parental Rights Amendment to the United States Constitution. The dangers of trying to add an amendment to our Constitution today have been written about many times. With today’s political corruption, adding an amendment could easily lead to a Constitutional Convention and a new socialist/communist constitution. Link  Link.

Grover was the economist and chief speechwriter for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce from 1983-1984. Erica Carle wrote a three part article entitled, “Who is in Charge of the New World Order,” that exposes the Chamber’s one-world-order agenda.

Norquist was Executive Director for the National Taxpayers’ Union (NTU) from 1978 to 1982, the same years we fought the first accelerated drive for a Constitutional Convention under the guise of a Balanced Budget Amendment. James Dale Davidson founded the NTU in 1969 and was the major force for a Con-Con especially during the years Norquist was Executive Director. The ruse back then was a Balanced Budget Amendment, the same excuse they’re using today. Link

Grover was formerly a federally registered lobbyist for Microsoft. The CEO of Microsoft is Bill Gates, who recently donated $1 billion to the United Nations for its population control agenda. See also, Bill Gates And Neo-Eugenics: Vaccines To Reduce Population | Rockefeller Foundation.

The ATR founder also supports Obama’s amnesty for illegal aliens and has been a facilitator of Islamist infiltration of the right. Even fellow CNP member Joe Farah of World Net Daily wants to dump Grover from the so-called “Conservative Movement.” Norquist is staunchly against Arizona’s immigration law and totally supports the 13 story Ground Zero Mosque, and  Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf.

American Legislative Exchange Council

ATR is a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). ALEC is a member of the Council for National Policy and was founded by Paul Weyrich, the former grand poobah of the CNP. ALEC is a corporate bill mill. It’s not just a lobby or front group, ALEC is one of the most powerful unelected councils in the country. Corporations hand to state legislators their “wish lists” of legislation to benefit their bottom lines. The membership of ALEC is 98% corporate and the corporate membership is the one that funds almost all of ALEC’s operations. They have bought their way into the process by which corporate lobbyists and special interest reps vote with elected officials to approve “model” bills. ALEC’s legislative leaders are responsible for getting the bills introduced and passed. They introduce the bills in their statehouses as their own brilliant ideas. They never disclose that corporations wrote and vetted these bills along with politicians behind closed doors at ALEC meetings. So, everyone who is a member of ALEC is influencing not only state bills, but likely most federal bills as well, written by corporations with vested interests…along with lobbyists like Grover. ALEC is also a long time supporter of a Constitutional Convention. More on ALEC in a future article.

Choice, Vouchers and Charter Schools

In 1995, Norquist was the keynote speaker at the National Conference on School Choice, which is sponsored by the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA). The NCPA is a free market think tank primarily funded by private foundations established by wealthy neo-conservative business families and billionaires, including Charles and David Koch. I wrote about David Koch in The Tea Parties, Part One. Koch is a member of the globalist new age Aspen Institute formerly headed by socialist UN member Maurice Strong, who wrote UN Agenda 21. Link How typical of Council for National Policy members like Norquist to argue for the communist School Choice.

Other Conference speakers included Paul Hill of the Rand Corporation.   RAND developed the mind control Delphi method in the 1950s for the U.S. Department of Defense. It was originally intended for use as a psychological weapon during the cold war. Also present was Peter Flanigan who was assistant to the president of the United States under Nixon and founded the Center for Education Innovation at the Manhattan Institute. The Manhattan Institute was founded in 1978 by none other than former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, William Casey.

A number of Council for National Policy members are promoting School Choice, Vouchers, and Charter Schools including the Family Research Council, Eagle Forum, James Dobson formerly with Focus on the Family, and The Heritage Foundation.

Heritage was founded in 1973 by three CNP members, grand poobah Paul Weyrich, Edwin Fuelner and Joseph Coors. Richard Mellon Scaife, who funds both sides of the aisle was a major early contributor and has given a total of $19.6 million to Heritage. Scaife initially funded Heritage groundbreaking efforts to the tune of $900,000, and he currently serves as vice-chairman of the Heritage Foundation board of trustees. Link Scaife also funds Planned Parenthood and had a full page ad in the WSJ on April 4, 2011, stating, “Why Conservatives Should Oppose Efforts to Defund Planned Parenthood.”

Grover’s relationship with Heritage Foundation, started in 1994 when he worked with Newt Gingrich and the Heritage Foundation to draft the Contract with America. See Chey Simonton’s, The Rockefeller/Heritage Connection for the truth about Heritage Foundation. Link Heritage is presently promoting Grover’s new book, Debacle: Obama’s War on Jobs and Growth and What We Can Do Now to Regain Our Future. Link

Charlotte Iserbyt, former Senior Policy Advisor in the U.S. Department of Education blew the whistle in the 80s on government activities withheld from the public. Here’s what she said about School Choice, “School Choice is the Trojan Horse to bring our country down. The tragedy of the matter is that many of our own people are involved in the demise of our Constitutional system of government and are willing to merge with Russia (the old Soviet Union). Charter schools are ungraded, continuous progress, mastery learning, come under the Effective School Research label, are international, involved with multinationals, and use the Skinner method.” Link Link Another wonderful article by Jed Brown that exposes the communist rot of School Choice is The Dirty Little Secret of School Choice and Charter Schools.

In a 1995 letter from Charlotte Iserbyt to Phyllis Schlafly, Charlotte exposes choice, vouchers, and Charter schools. Charlotte has the documented proof that Outcome Based Education (OBE) is communist and based on the 1933 Eight-Year Study drawn up by Progressive Education Association types (PEA being a communist front). These PEA members travelled back and forth to the Soviet Union in the thirties.

Charlotte also included the draft of a Charter School Initiative in Washington state by Jim Spady, a friend of new age futurist, Barbara Marx Hubbard, recommending a complete move from representative government to participatory government, using councils and unelected persons!  She attached copies of letters from those who supported Spady’s initiative along with letters from luminaries who supported this communist change to American education. They include former Reagan education czar, William Bennett, Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander, and of course, Grover Norquist. I urge you to thoroughly read and research the people mentioned in Charlotte’s letter. It is essential people understand that Phyllis never responded to Iserbyt’s letter, and that they had worked closely together on education for many years with Charlotte providing Schlafly with most of her information for “Child Abuse in the Classroom.” By all means purchase The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America on Amazon.

In Part 2, we’ll discuss Grover’s influence with former President George W. Bush and how he ushered silver-tongued jihadists into the Oval Office of our President after the worst attack ever on American soil.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Enemies on the Left, False Friends on the Right – Part 3

If there is to be any future for America as an independent nation, somebody must tell the truth. That truth is painful to most Americans who have been silently reeducated over the last one hundred years. The Don Bell Report

As I mentioned in Part 2, the CNP still has CFR members on their membership lists today. It is populated by neo-con Trotskyites and corporate fascists, along with Dominionists/Reconstructionists, and cultists. There was a long and planned process of destroying old right Constitutional conservatism which has unfortunately succeeded. Here’s what happened:

Forty or fifty years ago or more, those who have become leaders in today’s Republican party drifted away from Trotskyism and began to identify themselves as democratic socialists. Still later, under the guise of neo-conservatives, Irving Kristol and William F. Buckley, who emasculated true old right conservatism, slithered into the Republican party as “moderates.” They stole the name of “conservative” and seized intellectual control of the true conservatives, as well as the entire Republican party. I strongly suggest the purchase of John McManus’s well documented and referenced book, William F. Buckley, Pied Piper for the Establishment. Buckley was CFR, CIA agent, Skull and Bonesman from Yale, as well as an invited guest to Bilderberger conferences. Link

We must not ignore Leon Trotsky. Trotsky, unlike Stalin and Lenin, favored the slow and patient imposition of Marxist socialism without murders and gulags, yet he had no problem murdering three million Russians. Trotsky wished for the people to “choose” Marxism, rather than having it forced upon them. Irving Kristol, father of Bilderberger, Bill Kristol, stated, “I regard myself as lucky to have been a young Trotskyite and I have not a single bitter memory.”

Dominionists/Reconstructionists desire a Christian theocracy to head the country, a return to old testament laws, (punishment for sin, i.e. stoning in the street for homosexuals, adulterers, etc.) and they believe Christ will not return until they have theocratized the world. Here is a more thorough definition.

As for cults, the main influence in the CNP was none other than Sun Myung Moon through the front group, American Freedom Coalition, headed by Dr. Robert Grant. The Church of Scientology is also a member of American Legislative Exchange Council. Link

In the late 70s, the view on the Right was that an organization such as the Council for National Policy was needed. It stemmed from their perception that the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) – closely identified with the Rockefeller family – was selling out American interests in the pursuit of a “left-wing foreign policy agenda.” This is true. However, these right wing groups, under the CNP umbrella, have been extremely helpful in promoting the exact same agenda. Go back and reread the statement in Tragedy and Hope by Carroll Quigley in Part 1 of this series, and remember that statement is from 1966.

All the organizations within the CNP sent us fund raising letters promising to stop the abortion agenda, the homosexual agenda, the anti-gunners and everything else. They are tied to the Heritage Foundation in promoting great sounding rightwing principles, which failed to tell the core and truth of the Republic’s destruction. The grassroots people trusted these alleged Christian patriots, and sent them millions and millions of dollars. These groups all became wealthy, and grew exponentially. The grassroots middle class Christians and patriots became poor. Nothing changed. It is even worse today after 35 years of funding these groups.

The majority of these various groups claimed to be Christians, yet had a self righteous attitude towards those who had abortions or were homosexuals. Needless to say, their rhetoric didn’t win any converts, and why should it? They were busy pointing fingers and screaming “Sinner!” The love of Christ was not in their hearts or in their treatment of their fellow man.

So now, let’s take a look at two of the four top movers and shakers who founded the CNP. Please note this is just skimming the surface of their involvements.

Nelson Bunker Hunt

hunt

Hunt was a Texas Oil Man and silver manipulator and financial provider for fellow CNP member, Bill Bright’s Campus Crusade for Christ. He lost his fortune in the silver market, but has since regained it. Link Bunker also provided Wycliffe Bible Translators property in TX for a new international translation center.   Thy Will Be Done, by Colby and Dennett, documents the connections between Wycliffe Bible Translators, the Rockefeller family, and the CIA who carried out the genocide of indigenous tribes in the Amazon basin. As well, he funded CNP member Ed McAteer, “the Colgate-Palmolive salesman who was the organizing force behind the politicized Fundamentalist movement”…and who had the McAteer Roundtable years ago where these CNP members met to decide policy. McAteer was also on the Wycliffe Bible Translation board. Colby and Dennett also describe the vital role of Ed McAteer in bringing together wealthy liberal and conservative patrons to fund and direct the Wycliffe organization which, in the name of Christ, was assisting Nelson Rockefeller in the conquest of Latin America. Link Ed McAteer was also instrumental in the founding of CNP member, Jerry Falwell’s Moral Majority.

In 1951, Bunker Hunt and Wallace Johnson, founder of Holiday Inns, worked with and funded Bill Bright’s Campus Crusade for Christ donating $15.5 million. In 1967, Hunt formed the Christian World Liberation Front (CWLF) as a covert front for Campus Crusade, which split off and became a leading ministry in the Jesus People movement. He once organized a paramilitary force called “Americans Volunteer Group” which he intended to use as a “death squad” against political opponents. [Ominous Politics, Saloma 53; Roads to Dominion, Diamond 51-56, 250]

Recently, Wycliffe’s effort was to complete a new translation which eliminated both Father and Son from the Bible in order to be more appealing to Muslims. The outcry of the public apparently stopped this.

Pat Robertson

robertson

Robertson is a Southern Baptist and was active as an ordained minister with that denomination for many years, but holds to a charismatic theology not traditionally common among Southern Baptists. Pat holds a law degree from Yale, having turned to the ministry after he failed to pass the bar in New York State.

He is the founder of Christian Broadcasting Network, and stated in his book, Shout it From the Housetops, that he was led to Christ by Dutch Missionary Cornelius Vanderbreggen.

Vanderbreggen was present at the 1987 National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Convention, and according to new age expert and attorney, Constance Cumbey, author of Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, Vanderbreggen was at the booth for Willis Carto‘s Liberty Lobby, the former publisher of the Spotlight Magazine. Vanderbreggen was actually doing seminars for Liberty Lobby about Israel and the Bible. Carto is also the co-founder of the Institute for Historical Review, considered the leader in Holocaust denial groups. Critics claim, and rightly so, that Carto and his organizations are anti-Semitic.

Connie was at the 1987 National Religious Broadcasters‘ Convention, where she saw Vanderbreggen at the Liberty Lobby booth. She immediately remembered reading Robertson’s book, and that Vanderbreggen was mentioned as having led Robertson to Christ. Vanderbreggen was sent to talk to Connie and dissuade her of the belief that the Institute for Historical Review was a holocaust denial group. Anyone who knows Constance Cumbey knows she documents everything and has a memory like a steel trap. Present with Connie, and witness to all this was none other than Joseph Carr, author of The Twisted Cross: The Occultic Religion of Hitler and the New Age Nazism of the Third Reich. I asked Connie if she thought Vanderbreggen was a dominionist because Robertson so often featured the leading Council for National Policy dominionists on his Christian Broadcasting Network program. She said she thought of him as more of a Nazi. Read Connie’s 5 part article at NWVs, entitled, The Family” and It’s Hijacking of Evangelicalism.

Pat also was the founder of Christian Coalition, headed by fellow CNP member, Ralph Reed, who was later disgraced for his involvement with another CNP member, Jack Abramoff. Jack was a D.C. lobbyist, who went to prison for the Indian lobbying scandal. Christian Coalition was famous for their voter guides, but there are countless incidents where lies or omissions were told about true Constitutional conservatives in order to elect the moderates or neo-conservatives instead.

In 1997, Robertson also sold his Family Channel for 1.9 billion to CFR member, Rupert Murdoch, which renamed it Fox Family. A condition of the sale was that the station would continue airing Robertson’s television program, The 700 Club, twice a day in perpetuity, regardless of any changes of ownership. The channel is now owned by Disney and run as “ABC Family.” Robertson worked for two years as financial analyst and management trainee at W.R. Grace Co., who employed émigré Nazis after WWII. Robertson was also godfather of the child of company president J. Peter Grace, who, as I stated in Part 2, was head of the Sovereign Military Order of the Knights of Malta in the United States, and a key figure in the CIA’s Operation Paperclip to remove classified information from dossiers on Nazi war criminals. Grace was CFR as well as CNP on the initial membership roster, and was also on the board of CNP member, Willard Garvey’s International Conference on Privatizing Education. In 1984, between the establishment of Garvey’s National Center for Privatization and Reagan’s executive order to permanently establish low fees for public land grazing, Willard Garvey wrote a letter to President Reagan, dated April 6, 1984, which stated, in part, “Privatization is now an idea whose time has come.’ The knowledge, communication, and computer industry can make political representatives obsolete!” Link  This letter also included a brochure for the Heritage Foundation.

In 2008, Pat rushed to endorse pro-abort, pro homosexual, anti-gunner, Rudi Guilliani, and in 2012, endorsed Willard Mitt Romney.

In Part 4, we’ll look at Tim LaHaye and T. Cullen Davis as well as other powerful people within the Council for National Policy.

Ted Cruz is no Larry McDonald – Part 1

The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining super capitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control…. Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent.” Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976, allegedly killed in the Korean Airlines 747 that was allegedly shot down by the Soviets

“We have four boxes with which to defend our freedom: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.” Representative Larry McDonald

“It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged.” G. K. Chesterton

Representative Larry McDonald was born April 1, 1935 in Atlanta, Georgia and supposedly died September 1, 1983 in the Sea of Japan. He was aboard Korean Airlines Flight 007.   McDonald was invited to South Korea to attend a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the United States–South Korea Mutual Defense Treaty with fellow members of Congress, Senator Jesse Helms of North Carolina, Senator Steve Symms of Idaho, and Representative Carroll Hubbard of Kentucky. Because of delays, the other three did not take the same flight as McDonald. A Soviet MiG-23 Flogger and three Soviet Su-15 Flagon fighters intercepted and allegedly shot down the plane over Sakhalin Island in the Sea of Japan. There were 268 others allegedly lost at sea.

Larry McDonald

It is my belief, along with many others, that the plane was forced to land on Soviet soil, and those who survived, including, and especially, McDonald, became Soviet prisoners. Link

Larry was a US Representative from Georgia from 1975-1983. He was also the National Chairman of the John Birch Society. McDonald graduated from Emory Medical School in 1957, just prior to his 18th birthday. He was the second youngest physician in Georgia state history at the age of 22, but his father had topped him by a couple months, having been the youngest physician in the state’s history. He then joined the US Navy and served four years as a physician and flight surgeon. While in Reykjavik as a Navy flight surgeon, he saw something that awakened his understanding about communism.

When he returned home, he began reading political history and books on foreign policy. He looked for others concerned about the communist threat he had seen, and was now aware of, but the only organization he found trying to warn the people was the John Birch Society. He joined them in 1963, and he became the Chairman in March, 1983, shortly before his death. He was well versed on America’s founding fathers and the Constitution, and he also saw the rise of Bolshevism in Russia and the spread of international communism. He knew this was led in the US by the elitist globalist agenda of the Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, and Rockefellers.

In 1972, Dr. McDonald ran for the House of Representatives as a Democrat. He lost, but still won 48% of the votes, proving his efforts to build an informed electorate in the 7th Congressional District of Georgia.

McDonald was known for his conservative views, even by Southern standards, and he was more conservative than the Republican Party. In fact, one scoring method published in the American Journal of Political Science named him the second most conservative member of either chamber of Congress between 1937 and 2002 (behind only Ron Paul). He also scored “perfect or near perfect ratings” on the congressional scorecards of the National Right to Life Committee, Gun Owners of America, and the American Security Council.

Referred to by The New American magazine as “the leading anti-Communist in Congress,” McDonald admired Senator Joseph McCarthy and was a member of the Joseph McCarthy Foundation.   Unlike many national Democrats, McDonald held a consistently conservative line on issues such as foreign policy, defense spending, fiscal restraint, states’ rights, gun rights, and pro-life. He called the welfare state a disaster and wished to turn over the “Great Society” of LBJ to the states.

In 1978, the Democratic party censured him for the despicable act of calling himself a Democrat, basically for two reasons. The first was his involvement with the anti-communist John Birch Society, and the second reason was his failure to support Jimmy Carter.

During his time in Congress, McDonald introduced over 150 bills, including legislation to:

  • Repeal the Gun Control Act of 1968.
  • Remove the limitation upon the amount of outside income which a Social Security recipient may earn.
  • Award honorary U.S. Citizenship to Russian dissident Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
  • Prohibit Federal funds from being used to finance the purchase of American agricultural commodities by any Communist country.
  • Impeach UN Ambassador Andrew Young.
  • Limit eligibility for appointment and admission to any United States service academy to men.
  • Direct the Comptroller General of the United States to audit the gold held by the United States annually.
  • Increase the national speed limit to 65 miles per hour (105 km/h) from the then-prevailing national speed limit of 55 miles per hour (89 km/h).
  • Abolish the Federal Election Commission.
  • Get the U.S. out of the United Nations.

McDonald also introduced numerous bills to stop the making of loans and selling of arms to communist or communist friendly regimes.

He was adamant about the lack of education regarding the Federal Reserve and wrote a booklet, We Hold These Truths, published in 1976, explaining to the public the formation of the Constitution and the issues facing the country. Larry McDonald, Steve Symms of Idaho, and Ron Paul of Texas were considered the three most conservative men in Congress at that time. I wish we had hundreds of them today.

Now let’s take a look at who we call one of the top conservatives today, namely:

Texas Senator, Ted Cruz

Senator Cruz recently announced his candidacy for President of the United States at, now deceased, Council for National Policy member, Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University.  Remember how close Falwell was to cultist, Sun Myung Moon. So I find the choice of Liberty University of extreme interest.  This article was written in February of 2014, and I stand behind every word.  Ted Cruz is a globalist, as are all the rest of the candidates.

Ted Cruz

Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz was born December, 1970 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada to an Irish-Italian mother who was born and raised in Wilmington, Delaware, and to Rafael Cruz, who was born in Matanzas, Cuba, in 1939. His father fled Cuba at the age of 18, and became a US Citizen in 2005. Accordingly, Cruz is ineligible for US president or vice president. See Publius Huldah’s important article on this subject.

He holds dual citizenship with Canada and the United States. He was elected to the Senate in 2012, and is the junior Republican Senator from the state of Texas. He was Solicitor General of Texas from 2003 to May 2008 and was the first Hispanic Solicitor General in Texas, the youngest in the United States, and the longest tenure of a Solicitor General in Texas history. He is one of three Latinos in the Senate, along with Marco Rubio and Bob Menendez, all Cuban-Americans.

During high school, Cruz participated in a Houston-based group called the Free Market Education Foundation where Cruz learned about free-market economic philosophers such as Milton Friedman, Friedrich Hayek, Frédéric Bastiat, and Ludwig von Mises, all of whom were proponents of classical liberalism.   Cruz graduated cum laude from Princeton University with a Bachelor of Arts from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs in 1992. Cruz then attended Harvard Law school, graduating, magna cum laude in 1995 with a Juris Doctor.  Professor Alan Dershowitz stated, “Cruz was a terrific student, he was always very active in class, presenting a libertarian point of view. He didn’t strike me as a social conservative, more of a libertarian.”

Cruz served as law clerk to Chief Justice of the United States, William Rehnquist. After his clerkships, he then took a position with the law firm of Cooper, Carvin & Rosenthal. In 1998, Cruz served as private counsel for Congressman John Boehner, during Boehner’s lawsuit against Congressman Jim McDermott for releasing a tape recording of a Boehner telephone conversation. Link

After a couple of years at this D.C. law firm, Cruz became domestic policy adviser to the presidential campaign of then-Texas Governor George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Cruz brought to the table his own formidable, even astonishing, elite connections which, in 1999, helped enable candidate George W. Bush’s lock on the 2000 election. In that same year, when Cruz was a George W. Bush campaign aide, he arranged a meeting between one of the key architects of the Christian right movement, Paul Weyrich, who played a pivotal role in drawing evangelicals into electoral politics, and one of Bush’s campaign leaders, Timothy Goeglein. Goeglein went on to serve as Special Assistant to U.S. President George W. Bush and Deputy Director of the White House Office of Public Liaison from 2001 to 2008, and now works with Focus on The Family,(a UN-NGO). After President Bush took office, Cruz served as an associate deputy attorney general in the U.S. Justice Department and as the director of policy planning at the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.

Cruz’ ties to Paul Weyrich are nonetheless even more jaw-dropping considering who Weyrich was. How did Cruz earn the friendship of the man who helped create the Heritage Foundation, the Moral Majority, Free Congress Foundation, and the American Legislative Exchange Council, (ALEC)?

Cruz’ tenure as legal aid to Justice Rehnquist gained him inside access to the new “Christian right” leaders.   He had inherited ties as well, through his father, Rafael Cruz, businessman and pastor, who explained his role at a July, 2013 Iowa pastors conference sponsored by Council for National Policy members and Dominionists, Don and Tim Wildmon, of American Family Association,(a UN-NGO), in helping get Ronald Reagan elected. This Conference was also attended by his U.S. Senator son, Ted.  It was through Rafael’s involvement in one of the earliest incarnations of the politicized religious right, Ed McAteer’s Religious Roundtable, of which Paul Weyrich was a co-founder.  (In the massive book, Thy Will Be Done: The Conquest of the Amazon: Nelson Rockefeller and Evangelism in the Age of Oil, authors Gerard Colby and Charlotte Dennett present the disturbing evidence of Rockefeller’s use of American missionaries, and in particular, the Summer Institute of Linguistics, who cooperated in conducting surveys, transporting CIA agents, and indirectly assisting in the genocide of tribes in the Amazon basin. Colby and Dennett also describe the vital role of Wycliffe board member, Ed McAteer, in bringing together wealthy liberal and conservative patrons to fund and direct the Wycliffe organization which, in the name of Christ, was assisting Nelson Rockefeller in the conquest of Latin America. Wycliffe recently attempted to publish a Bible removing the words “Father” and “Son” in order to be more appealing to Muslims Arab translations. However, an outcry temporarily stopped this. Link)

In Part 2, we’ll take a closer look at just who Paul Weyrich was and the power he had in the neo-conservative Christian right circles, as well as those who are funding and promoting Ted Cruz.
