Another Secretive Business Haven - Right in the United States!

Special Report: A Little House of Secrets on the Great Plains

The secretive business havens of Cyprus and the Cayman Islands face a potent rival: Cheyenne, Wyoming.
At a single address in this sleepy city of 60,000 people, more than 2,000 companies are registered. The building, 2710 Thomes Avenue, isn't a shimmering skyscraper filled with A-list corporations. It's a 1,700-square-foot brick house with a manicured lawn, a few blocks from the State Capitol.
Neighbors say they see little activity there besides regular mail deliveries and a woman who steps outside for smoke breaks. Inside, however, the walls of the main room are covered floor to ceiling with numbered mailboxes labeled as corporate "suites." A bulky copy machine sits in the kitchen. In the living room, a woman in a headset answers calls and sorts bushels of mail.
A Reuters investigation has found the house at 2710 Thomes Avenue serves as a little Cayman Island on the Great Plains. It is the headquarters for Wyoming Corporate Services, a business-incorporation specialist that establishes firms which can be used as "shell" companies, paper entities able to hide assets.
Wyoming Corporate Services will help clients create a company, and more: set up a bank account for it; add a lawyer as a corporate director to invoke attorney-client privilege; even appoint stand-in directors and officers as high as CEO. Among its offerings is a variety of shell known as a "shelf" company, which comes with years of regulatory filings behind it, lending a greater feeling of solidity.
"A corporation is a legal person created by state statute that can be used as a fall guy, a servant, a good friend or a decoy," the company's website boasts. "A person you control... yet cannot be held accountable for its actions. Imagine the possibilities!"
Among the entities registered at 2710 Thomes, Reuters found, is a shelf company sheltering real-estate assets controlled by a jailed former prime minister of Ukraine, according to allegations made by a political rival in a federal court in California.
The owner of another shelf company at the address was indicted in April for allegedly helping online-poker operators evade a U.S. ban on Internet gambling. The owner of two other firms there was banned from government contracting in January for selling counterfeit truck parts to the Pentagon.
Casting the First Stone
All the activity at 2710 Thomes is part of a little-noticed industry in the U.S.: the mass production of paper businesses. Scores of mass incorporators like Wyoming Corporate Services have set up shop. The hotbeds of the industry are three states with a light regulatory touch-Delaware, Wyoming and Nevada.
The pervasiveness of corporate secrecy on America's shores stands in stark contrast to Washington's message to the rest of the world. Since the September 11 attacks in 2001, the U.S. has been calling forcefully for greater transparency in global transactions, to lift the veil on shadowy money flows. During a debate in 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama singled out Ugland House in the Cayman Islands, reportedly home to some 12,000 offshore corporations, as "either the biggest building or the biggest tax scam on record."
Yet on U.S. soil, similar activity is perfectly legal. The incorporation industry, overseen by officials in the 50 states, has few rules. Convicted felons can operate firms which create companies, and buy them with no background checks.
No states license mass incorporators, and only a few require them to formally register with state authorities. None collect the names and addresses of "beneficial owners," the individuals with a controlling interest in corporations, according to a 2009 report by the National Association of Secretaries of State, a group for state officials overseeing incorporation. Wyoming and Nevada allow the real owners of corporations to hide behind "nominee" officers and directors with no direct role in the business, often executives of the mass incorporator.

The building at 2710 Thomes Avenue, is pictured in Cheyenne, Wyoming, in this undated photograph.
"In the U.S., (business incorporation) is completely unregulated," says Jason Sharman, a professor at Griffith University in Nathan, Australia, who is preparing a study for the World Bank on corporate formation worldwide. "Somalia has slightly higher standards than Wyoming and Nevada."
An estimated 2 million corporations and limited liability companies are created each year in the U.S., according to Senate investigators. The Treasury Department has singled out LLCs as particularly vulnerable to being used as shell companies, as they can be owned by anyone and managed anonymously. Delaware, Nevada and Wyoming had 688,000 LLCs on file in 2009, up from 624,000 in 2007.
Treasury and state banking regulators say banks have flagged billions of dollars in suspicious transactions involving U.S. shell companies in recent years. On June 10, a federal judge in Oregon ordered a company registered there to pay $60 million for defrauding a Ukrainian government agency through sham transactions involving shell companies. The civil lawsuit described a network of U.S.-registered shells connected to fraud in Eastern Europe and Afghanistan.
A growing niche in the shell business is shelf corporations. Like paper-only shells, which enable the secrecy-minded to hide real ownership of assets, shelf companies are set up by firms like Wyoming Corporate Services, then left "on the shelf" to season for years. They're then sold later to owners looking for a quick way to secure bank loans, bid on contracts, and project financial stability. To speed up business activity, shelf corporations can often be purchased with established bank accounts, credit histories and tax returns filed with the Internal Revenue Service.
"They just slot in your names, and you walk away with the company. Presto!" says Daniel E. Karson, executive managing director at investigative firm Kroll Inc. "The purpose is to conceal ownership."
On its website, Wyoming Corporate Services currently lists more than 700 shelf companies for sale in 37 states. The older they are, the more expensive, like Scotch whisky. Brookside Management Inc., formed in December 2004, sells for $5,995, while Knotty Management LLC, formed in May, costs just $645. In Delaware, incorporator Harvard Business Services markets First Family LLC, created in May 1997, for $10,000.
"If they're signing a large contract, they may not want it to look like they've just formed a company," said Brett Melson, director of U.S. sales at Harvard Business Services. But he added: "Unsavory characters can do a lot of bad things with the companies."
Shell and shelf companies do serve legitimate purposes. They provide a quick and cheap way for entrepreneurs to jump into business and create jobs. Businesses can use them to protect trade secrets. Politicians or other public figures may use a shell company to hold their home so that people with ill intent have a harder time locating them.
The state of Wyoming says it cracked down on incorporation services in 2009 after discovering that nearly 5,700 companies were registered to post-office boxes. New laws require companies to have a physical presence in the state through an owner or a registered agent, and make it a felony to submit false filings.
"What we want to have is good, quality legitimate businesses," said Patricia O'Brien, Wyoming's Deputy Secretary of State. "We don't regulate what the business itself does, but we are not recruiting businesses here that are questionable or illegal."
Wyoming Corporate Services is run by Gerald Pitts, its 54-year-old founder and president. On paper, he is a prolific businessman. Incorporation data provided by Westlaw, a unit of Thomson Reuters, show that Pitts is listed as a director, president or principal for at least 41 companies registered at 2710 Thomes Avenue.
Another 248 firms name Edge Financial Inc., another incorporation service, as their "manager." Gerald Pitts is the president of Edge Financial, according to records on file with the Wyoming secretary of state's office.
Companies registered at 2710 Thomes Avenue have been named in a dozen civil lawsuits alleging unpaid taxes, securities fraud and trademark infringement since 2007, a review of Westlaw data shows. State and federal tax authorities have filed liens against companies registered at the address seeking to collect more than $300,000 in unpaid taxes, according to Westlaw.
Pitts says Wyoming Corporate Services fully complies with the law and doesn't have any knowledge of how clients use the companies he registers. "However, we recognize that business entities (whether aged, shell or traditional) may be used for both good and ill," Pitts wrote in an email to Reuters. "WCS will always cooperate with law enforcement agencies who request information or assistance. WCS does not provide any product or service with the intent that it be used to violate the law."
The Ukraine Connection
Gerald Pitts and his own incorporation firms have never been sued or sanctioned, according to federal and state court records. Wyoming officials said Wyoming Corporate Services operates legally. "If they do it by cubby holes and they are really representing each person, they meet the law," said O'Brien, the deputy secretary of state.
But clients of his have run into trouble.
Among those registered at the little house in Cheyenne are two small companies formed through Wyoming Corporate Services that sold knock-off truck parts to the U.S. Department of Defense, according to a Reuters review of two federal contracting databases and findings from an investigation by the Pentagon's Defense Logistics Agency. The owner of those firms, Atilla Kan, awaits sentencing on a 2007 conviction for wire fraud in a related matter.
Also linked to 2710 Thomes is former Ukrainian Prime Minister Pavlo Lazarenko, who was once ranked the eighth-most corrupt official in the world by watchdog group Transparency International. He is now serving an eight-year jail term in California for a 2004 conviction on money-laundering and extortion charges. According to court records, that scheme used shell companies and offshore bank accounts to hide stolen Ukrainian government funds.
Court records submitted in Lazarenko's criminal case and documents from a separate civil lawsuit, as well as interviews with lawyers familiar with the matter, indicate Lazarenko controls a shelf company incorporated in Cheyenne that owns an estimated $72 million in real estate in Ukraine through other companies.
The U.S. government continues to seek more than $250 million from bank accounts in Antigua, Barbuda, Guernsey and other countries that it says were controlled by Lazarenko and his associates, according to a forfeiture action filed by the Department of Justice.
The paper trail linking Lazarenko to the real estate in Ukraine is labyrinthine. At the heart of it is a shelf company called Capital Investments Group, registered at 2710 Thomes Avenue.
U.S. lawyers for a Ukrainian businessman named Gennady Korban submitted documents claiming that Lazarenko is the true owner of Capital Investments Group and other U.S. companies.
Lazarenko and Korban are rivals in Ukraine, and for years have traded allegations of corruption and assassination. An organization chart accompanying Korban's submission alleges Capital Investments Group owns 99.99 percent of a Ukrainian firm called OOO Capital Investments Group. That company, the chart claims, is the owner of another company, OOO Ukrainsky Tyutyun, where Pavlo Lazarenko is a director. Each of the firms and several others are used as corporate fronts to control properties in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, the filing alleges.
Seven properties are named in the 2009 filing by Korban, including 55 Pushkin Street and 58 Komsomolskaya Street. The dossier on Capital Investments Group claims that other directors of the alleged front companies include Lazarenko's wife, son and mother-in-law.
Federal prosecutors successfully urged the court in late 2009 to disregard Korban's submissions, arguing that it would take too much time to vet his account and thus delay his resentencing after a lengthy appeal.
A few months later, in February 2010, Capital Investments Group sued Korban and others in federal court in Delaware. That lawsuit claims two properties in the Ukraine controlled by Capital Investments Group - 55 Pushkin Street and 58 Komsomolskaya Street - were stolen from it using forged documents.
The lawsuit says Capital Investments was formed in September 2005. It is registered at 2710 Thomes Avenue, and Gerald Pitts, the court documents say, is "President, Secretary, Chairman and director."
But Capital Investments Group doesn't disclose the name of its owners. Daniel Horowitz and Martin Garbus, attorneys for the company, have represented Pavlo Lazarenko in other U.S. and Ukrainian litigation. They declined to provide the owners' names, citing client confidentiality, and wouldn't comment on Lazarenko's links to CIG.
The U.S. Attorney's office in San Francisco declined to comment. Asked about his association with Lazarenko and Capital Investments Group, Gerald Pitts declined to provide information on specific clients. Pitts said he is aware of the Delaware lawsuit and "is cooperating fully with authorities in the matter."
Poker Empire
Another man linked to 2710 Thomes is Ira N. Rubin. Prosecutors allege he created a Rube Goldberg-style network of shell and shelf corporations to further his scams.
In December 2006, the Federal Trade Commission sued Rubin for fraud in federal court in Tampa. Documents in the civil lawsuit allege Rubin used at least 18 different front companies to obscure his role as a credit-card processor for telemarketing scams.
These operations, the FTC alleged, offered subprime credit cards that charged an upfront fee debited from customers' bank accounts, but the cards were never delivered. The complaint also alleged Rubin processed payments for online gambling rings and pharmacy websites selling controlled substances.
One company in that network was Elite Funding Group Inc. It was registered at 2710 Thomes Avenue in August 2004 and offered for sale by Wyoming Corporate Services for $1,095. Gerald Pitts was listed in public documents as the original director, wrote an investigator hired by the FTC in a January 2007 report filed in federal court in Tampa. Pitts had resigned six months earlier as director and was replaced by Rubin, according to court records.
Rubin's maze-like network served as the back office for alleged consumer scams operating from Canada, the Philippines, Cyprus and the U.S., with names like Freedom Pharmacy and Fun Time Bingo. His companies took consumer bank account information obtained by the clients, charged the accounts via an electronic transactions network that enables direct debits, kept a portion of the proceeds, and forwarded the rest to the alleged fraudsters, according to documents in the FTC's civil lawsuit.
To minimize scrutiny, Rubin used at least 18 different firms to handle his operations. A firm called Global Marketing Group processed payments for telemarketers offering bogus credit cards, the FTC alleged. Elite Funding, the Wyoming shelf corporation, was a subsidiary of Global Marketing. Rubin used Elite to open bank accounts with Wells Fargo Bank which held more than $300,000 in proceeds from the payment processing, according to court records.
Just hours after Rubin was visited by a court-appointed receiver in the case in December 2006, $249,000 vanished from the Wells Fargo account. Rubin refused to say if he transferred the money, citing his 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination. At least $125,000 then made its way to a bank account in Chennai, India, and has never been recovered, according to documents in the civil lawsuit.
Why use a shelf company? "To hide who they are and what they are doing. In the case of Ira Rubin, he had a payment processing empire that worked on behalf of many different industries, all of which were engaged in illegal conduct," said James Davis, an attorney with the Federal Trade Commission. "It was to his benefit to make it as difficult as possible for law enforcement to connect these companies back to him."
In 2008, Rubin fled to Costa Rica to avoid arrest for contempt in the civil case. Authorities allege he went on to run another payment-processing operation from abroad: This March 10, he and 10 others were indicted in New York for allegedly running a massive scheme to hide payments made by U.S. customers to the three largest online-poker websites, in violation of a ban passed by Congress in 2006. He was extradited from Guatemala the same month. On June 8, a New York judge denied bail for Rubin.
Stuart Meissner, an attorney for Rubin, said his client was not available for comment. Pitts declined to comment.
American Loopholes
The loopholes in U.S. disclosure of bank-account and shell-company ownership have drawn fire.
The U.S. was declared "non-compliant" in four out of 40 categories monitored by the Financial Action Task Force, an international group fighting money laundering and terrorism finance, in a 2006 evaluation report, its most recent. Two of those ratings relate to scant information collected on the owners of corporations. The task force named Wyoming, Nevada and Delaware as secrecy havens. Only three states - Alaska, Arizona and Montana - require regular disclosure of corporate shareholders in some form, according to the 2009 report by the National Association of Secretaries of State.
Some lawmakers want tighter rules. Senator Carl Levin (D-Mich.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee's Permanent Subcommittee for Investigations, has introduced the Incorporation Transparency and Law Enforcement Assistance Act each year since 2008. The bill would require states to obtain and update information about the real owners of companies, and impose civil and criminal sanctions for filing false information.
"Criminals use U.S. shell companies to commit financial fraud, drug trafficking, even terrorist financing, in part because our states don't require anyone to name the owners of the companies they form," Levin said in an email to Reuters.
The bill has been beaten back by a coalition of state officials and business groups, citing concerns about the cost of implementing the new law and federal government infringement on state incorporation rights.
A leading opponent is the National Association of Secretaries of State. Kay Stimson, a spokeswoman, said in an email that the Levin bill "would have placed new burdens upon states and legitimate, law-abiding businesses-many of which are struggling to stay afloat during these difficult financial times-while continuing to provide lawbreakers with the means to evade the law."
An aide for Levin said the bill is expected to be re-introduced soon. The new bill will add provisions requiring incorporation agents who sell shelf companies to provide beneficial owner data, said a Senate aide familiar with it.
Cat and Mouse
Shell companies remain a headache for law-enforcement authorities. Officials say court-ordered subpoenas served on incorporators of shell and shelf corporations generally do deliver the names of the real owners hiding behind nominees. But if the owners are not U.S. citizens or companies, the investigation often hits a dead-end, they say.
There are additional hurdles. Wyoming Corporate Services charges $2,500 per year to supply an attorney who can provide an extra shield. Cheyenne attorney Graham Norris Jr. tells prospective clients sent to him by WCS that he will create a company on their behalf. That way, he says, he can invoke attorney-client privilege-adding a layer of privacy anytime there is an inquiry about their identities.
"When you do need to contact Wyoming Corporate Services, you may do so through me," advises a June 13 "Dear Client" letter supplied by Norris to Reuters. "If you contact them directly, there is a greater risk they may disclose that information in response to a subpoena; remember there is no privilege with Wyoming Corporate Services, only with your attorney."
For a fee, clients can request that Norris file a motion to quash any subpoena, the letter says. It warns that in cases where fraud or criminal conduct is alleged, a court might order Norris to name the owners. Still, after any inquiry about identity, the letter says, Norris must inform the client-and "I must also decline to answer the inquiry."
Investigators say they are sometimes loath to use subpoenas for the very reason highlighted in Norris' letter-fear of tipping off targets. "In the initial stages of investigation, when we encounter a domestic shell corporation, we know we can't subpoena the company that sold the corporation to the end users, because we don't want the target to find out they are being investigated," says FTC attorney James Davis.
Other U.S. agencies raise similar complaints about shells. The 2006 U.S. Money Laundering Threat Assessment, prepared by 16 federal agencies, devotes a chapter to the ways U.S. shell companies can be attractive vehicles to hide ill-gotten funds. It includes a chart to show why money launderers might like to create shells in Wyoming, Nevada or Delaware, which offer the highest levels of corporate anonymity.
The information in the chart is credited to the Web site of a firm called Corporations Today-an incorporation service run by Gerald Pitts in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Know Anything About the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives?

Time to Close Down the ATF
By Larry Pratt
June 25, 2011
NewsWithViews.com
http://www.newswithviews.com/Pratt/larry119.htm
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) has shone a spotlight on the criminal behavior of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, commonly referred to as the ATF. At a hearing last week, Issa took on Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich by asking him: “Who authorized this program that was so felony stupid it got people killed.”
Chairman Issa started off the interrogation of Weich by holding up one of the pages that the ATF had provided his committee. It was completely blackened, one of hundreds that had been totally redacted by the agency. (You can see a picture of this on GOA’s website.) Issa told Weich that this was unacceptable and that he was tired of the lack of cooperation at the Department of Justice.
Issa also caught Weich in a lie by pointing to a letter in which he denied any knowledge of Fast and Furious, when we now know that Weich did know about the program. Weich said that the letter had been written by a committee and that he did not know who had written that particular sentence. He refused to commit, however, to finding out who authored that lie and reporting back to Issa about it!
(At least during Watergate, Nixon was not covering up any dead bodies.)
The subject of the hearing was Operation Gunrunner, which had been repackaged in October of 2009 as
Fast and Furious. What had been a fairly routine sting operation to make an arrest at the time of an illegal firearms sale became a way of letting guns go unmonitored with criminals into Mexico, as well as in the U.S.
Some 2,500 guns have turned up in Mexico from Fast and Furious, and some 150 people have been murdered by criminals using these arms. Two of the deceased were U.S. federal agents.
Officially, the plan was to run a super sting operation to bring down a cartel or two. On its face, this is a lie, because the ATF refused to work with Mexican authorities. The ATF frequently lost track of the firearms after they moved south of the border, and once the guns were not under surveillance, there was no longer a chain of evidence.
Moreover, U.S. agents need permission to enter Mexico. Failure to do so could result in a year in jail -- even for ATF agents who, by the way, are not allowed to have guns in Mexico. ICE agent Jaime Zapata was assigned to Mexico and was prohibited from carrying a gun. While disarmed, he was murdered during an ambush by cartel members who used one of the “Fast and Furious” guns.
In a March 2010 internal memo that was later made public, the ATF trumpeted the violence that was
occurring on both sides of the border -- violence that was, in part, being fueled by Fast and Furious. Issa’s hearing revealed that Acting Director Kenneth Melson would expectantly watch a “live feed” of firearms sales being made at a cooperating gun store.
It’s like spending the day at the movies, opined Mike Vanderboegh of Sipsey Street Irregulars. “Hey, get me some more popcorn,” he said.
News reports have disclosed that many gun stores in the Southwest had suspicions about buyers that were not flagged by the Instant Check. But these gun dealers were told to go ahead and let the sales take place.
So, what did Democrats do in the face of this damning evidence? They wanted to discuss the need for more
gun restrictions.
Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) said Congress needed to pass more gun control because, if one massages the numbers just right (and ignores a whole bunch of others), why, 70% of guns used in Mexican crime supposedly come from the U.S. At least that’s what a brand new report from the ATF claims.
But Issa would have none of that, and he kept the committee focused on all the guns the ATF is helping send to Mexico.
ATF has a long history of death and destruction. Waco was never adequately addressed at the time. Indeed, ATF got a bigger budget the next year. Innocent people such as David Olofson were convicted with perjured testimony. The Bureau has never published a manual detailing how they determine what is, or is not, a machine gun.
We have to thank the agents who had the courage and integrity to blow the whistle on the corruption being fostered by their superiors. But this is only the tip of the iceberg. The Constitution allows no room for gun control, which is why this agency needs to be done away with and the managers of Fast and Furious (and those who signed off on it in the upper echelons of the Justice Department) need to go to jail.

Was Operation Gunrunner a Pet Project of Gun-Control Senators?
Anthony Ventre
Tue Jun 21, 2011
Commentary
There is a tenuous connection between the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Enforcement, Operation Gunrunner, and top Democrats in the Senate, but it's a connection worth looking at.
The quick brief on "Operation Gunrunner" is that it was a misguided ATF plan hatched by as yet unknown ATF officials which allowed guns purchased in the U.S. to "walk" across the borders into Mexico. Anyone tempted to think that would be a good idea should think of trying the same thing with gangs like MS-13 operating in the U.S.
Of course, guns purchased under the watchful eyes of ATF agents don't actually "walk" across the border; they are smuggled across and sold to ready buyers, often to members of Mexico's best known drug gangs, the Gulf Cartel and the Zetas.
The Gulf Cartel and the Zetas used to be pals, but the relationship fell apart with bloody consequences. Across from Brownsville, Texas is the Mexican city of Matamoras where "El Lazca," the Zetas' top man, was killed a few days ago in a gunfight that lasted for about two days.
The violent skirmish that killed "El Lazca" (real name Heriberto Lazcano) began not in the darkness of night but at 2 p.m. in the afternoon. That fight preceded one the day before which killed 13 people, according to the Brownsville Herald.
Exact figures of killed and wounded are hard to come by, but there's no doubt that Mexico's drug wars are more than a "kinetic military action."
So why was the ATF helping gun smugglers to get weapons across the border to fuel the drug wars? The official ATF answer is that it would be a useful tool leading to the capture of people like Heriberto Lazcano. Mission accomplished, you might say, minus the "capture" part.
On the other hand, the assortment of semi-auto AK-47s and AR-15s and other weapons supplied by the ATF Gunrunner managers also killed agent Brian Terry in Arizona, and likely DEA agent Jaime Zapata, ambushed along with another agent in San Luis Potoso.
The stated official purpose of the Gunrunner "Fast and Furious" Operation didn't make sense to Congressman Darryl Issa who conducted hearings on the operation. The hearings could soon lead to the resignation of ATF chief Kenneth Melson, and possibly other officials.
Attorney General Eric Holder, questioned by Issa's committee, says he didn't learn of the operation until "weeks ago" and President Barack Obama said he hadn't heard of it either.
It's possible that Melson's operation was given tacit approval in a milieu of silence, referencing the policies of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and three ardent anti-gun senators: Dianne Feinstein, Charles Schumer, and Sheldon Whitehouse.
Earlier this month, the three senators sent a report to a congressional subcommittee recommending an expansion of ATF cooperation with Mexico to curtail U.S. gun sales.
Conspicuously lacking in the senators' report are any recommendations on border security. A real plan to secure the borders would interdict drug, human, and gun smuggling, were that the real intent.
The entire purpose of Operation Gunrunner seems to be to fulfill the wishful thinking of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who made common ground with Mexico's leaders in stating that Mexico's drug violence stems from lax American gun laws.
In the fanciful analytics of top ATF bureaucrats, the solution was to force U.S. licensed firearms dealers to make repeated illegal gun sales to known criminals. It seems never to have occurred to anyone that serial numbers can be filed off the weapons or that operation Gunrunner would lead to more Americans and Mexicans being killed.

Gunrunning scandal uncovered at the ATF
By Sharyl Attkisson (CBS News)
February 23, 2011
WASHINGTON - Keeping American weapons from getting into the hands of Mexican gangs is the goal of a program called "Project Gunrunner." But critics say it's doing exactly the opposite. CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson reports on what she found.
*******

 *******
December 14, 2010. The place: a dangerous smuggling route in Arizona not far from the border. A special tactical border squad was on patrol when gunfire broke out and agent Brian Terry was killed.
Kent, Brian's brother, said "he was my only brother. That was the only brother I had. I'm lost."
The assault rifles found at the murder were traced back to a U.S. gun shop. Where they came from and how they got there is a scandal so large, some insiders say it surpasses the shoot-out at Ruby Ridge and the deadly siege at Waco.
To understand why, it helps to know something about "Project Gunrunner" an operation run by the ATF the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
"Project Gunrunner" deployed new teams of agents to the southwest border. The idea: to stop the flow of weapons from the US to Mexico's drug cartels. But in practice, sources tell CBS News, ATF's actions had the opposite result: they allegedly facilitated the delivery of thousands of guns into criminal hands.
CBS News wanted to ask ATF officials about the case, but they wouldn't agree to an interview. We were able to speak to six veteran ATF agents and executives involved. They don't want to be quoted by name for fear of retaliation. These are their allegations.
In late 2009, ATF was alerted to suspicious buys at seven gun shops in the Phoenix area. Suspicious
because the buyers paid cash, sometimes brought in paper bags. And they purchased classic "weapons of choice" used by Mexican drug traffickers - semi-automatic versions of military type rifles and pistols.
Sources tell CBS News several gun shops wanted to stop the questionable sales, but ATF encouraged them to continue.
Jaime Avila was one of the suspicious buyers. ATF put him in its suspect database in January of 2010. For the next year, ATF watched as Avila and other suspects bought huge quantities of weapons supposedly for "personal use." They included 575 AK-47 type semi-automatic rifles.
ATF managers allegedly made a controversial decision: allow most of the weapons on the streets. The idea, they said, was to gather intelligence and see where the guns ended up. Insiders say it's a dangerous tactic called letting the guns, "walk."
One agent called the strategy "insane." Another said: "We were fully aware the guns would probably be moved across the border to drug cartels where they could be used to kill."
On the phone, one Project Gunrunner source (who didn't want to be identified) told us just how many guns flooded the black market under ATF's watchful eye. "The numbers are over 2,500 on that case by the way. That's how many guns were sold - including some 50-calibers they let walk."
50-caliber weapons are fearsome. For months, ATF agents followed 50-caliber Barrett rifles and other guns believed headed for the Mexican border, but were ordered to let them go. One distraught agent was often overheard on ATF radios begging and pleading to be allowed to intercept transports. The answer: "Negative. Stand down."
CBS News has been told at least 11 ATF agents and senior managers voiced fierce opposition to the strategy. "It got ugly..." said one. There was "screaming and yelling" says another. A third warned: "this is crazy, somebody is gonna to get killed."
Sure enough, the weapons soon began surfacing at crime scenes in Mexico - dozens of them sources say - including shootouts with government officials.
One agent argued with a superior asking, "are you prepared to go to the funeral of a federal officer killed
with one of these guns?" Another said every time there was a shooting near the border, "we would all hold our breath hoping it wasn't one of 'our' guns."
Then, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered. The serial numbers on the two assault rifles found at the scene matched two rifles ATF watched Jaime Avila buy in Phoenix nearly a year before. Officials won't answer whether the bullet that killed Terry came from one of those rifles. But the nightmare had come true: "walked" guns turned up at a federal agent's murder.
"You feel like s***. You feel for the parents," one ATF veteran told us.
Hours after Agent Terry was gunned down, ATF finally arrested Avila. They've since indicted 34 suspected gunrunners in the same group. But the indictment makes no mention of Terry's murder, and no one is charged in his death.
Kent Terry said of his brother, "He'd want them to tell the truth. That's one thing my brother didn't like was a liar. And that's what he'd want. He'd want the truth.
In a letter, the Justice Department which oversees ATF says the agency has never knowingly allowed the sale of assault weapons to suspected gunrunners.

ATF Operation Gunrunner
Jonathan Hunt Fox News
Jan 17, 2008
Operation Gunrunner, the agency's attempt to stem what they call an "iron river" of weapons flowing from U.S. gun stores across the border to Mexico. These guns are going into the hands of drug cartels, who are using them to kill each other and, more worryingly, to assassinate scores of Mexican police officers and government officials.
The smugglers came across from Mexico, bringing with them their illicit cargo of drugs, and then they head back with their equally illegal cargo of weapons. And, short of stopping and searching every single vehicle and every single person crossing the border, there is no way to stop the flow of weapons.
Operation Gunrunner has been successful in stopping thousands of guns getting to the drug gangs … but thousands more have made it through, with the result that the cartels are frequently better armed than the Mexican police and army. When we toured some of the violence-wracked towns of northern Mexico, one police chief showed us the weapon he carries — a Smith and Wesson revolver that looked like something Wyatt Earp might have used. As an ATF special agent told us, a police officer armed with that sort of a weapon doesn't stand a chance against the AK-toting drug cartel enforcers.
The stark reality is that until the flow of high-powered weapons from the U.S. to Mexico is halted, there will be only one winner in the drug war.
From a reporters point of view it's not easy deciding how to cover the soaring drug-related violence in Mexico, since journalists are frequent targets of the all-powerful cartels ... so wandering around without protection isn't a good idea.
The police are happy to help out, with officers armed to the teeth, but given that police officers are being murdered almost every week, the safety they offer may be more of an illusion than a reality.
Having to make that choice, we — myself, cameraman Eric Barnes (who fears nothing except his mother), and producer Ron "Ronzilla" Ralston — opted for the illusion. Having a 300-pound policeman, with an AK47 strapped across his barrel chest, sitting next to you in the back of a pick-up just seemed to at least give us a chance if the drug gangs emerged from the shadows of the Mexican countryside.We are in Cananea, about 50 miles across the border from Douglas, Ariz. It was here that a drug gang of around 100 brazenly abducted four police officers ten days ago. The gang swept into town in a convoy of 20 vehicles; they took the four officers, drove them to the edge of town, lined them up against a fence, and shot them execution style. It was a clear warning from the cartels that the local authorities should not interfere with the billion-dollar drug smuggling operation.
Mexican President Felipe Calderon has sworn to do much more than interfere. He says he will crush the cartels, but the drug gangs have answered that call to arms with unprecedented violence. They are also adopting the methods of the Iraqi insurgency, beheading their victims and posting videos of the murders on the Internet. They have also left severed heads on the steps of government buildings. It is terror; it is intimidation, and it is war. The Mexican police and army find themselves facing an opponent who is often better armed, more disciplined, and certainly more ruthless.
It is a strange feeling to be in a country in which I, and the rest of the FOX crew, have spent many wonderful vacations ... and now, to know that we could get caught in a bloodbath at any time.
That's why we opted to stay close to the guys in uniforms, the guys with the big guns. It's not the perfect choice, but right now with Mexico at war, it's the best one we could make.

The Real Agenda of the Environmentalists! (Part 1)

*******
How Environmentalists Cause War and Repression
Environmentalists who agitate against pollution caused by foreign companies in the Third World need to take a long hard look in the mirror
Daniel Greenfield
Monday, June 20, 2011

No other group has done as much to keep America dependent on foreign oil as the environmentalists have. After leading successful campaigns against nuclear power and domestic drilling, the green movement may lecture on “oil wars”, but it is responsible for most of them.
The math of it is very simple. Resource shortages are a major cause of conflict. And environmentalists have dedicated themselves to creating resource shortages in prosperous nations. Their campaigns against nuclear, domestic oil and coal production have been big on self-righteousness and short on consequences. And the consequences are that their scaremongering has not only cost millions of American jobs, it has forced us to keep sending money to Muslim oil states who use that money for domestic repression and international terrorism.
The environmentalists have done the same thing in Europe and Asia, turning formerly moribund Communist powers, Russia and China, into energy and manufacturing superpowers. By making it more expensive and in some cases impossible to conduct manufacturing and energy production at home, they exported Western industries to the East, and enabled the transformation of struggling tyrannies into international superpowers.
China’s domestic repression is made possible by its economic boom. A boom created when American companies found it cheaper to do business in a country where they weren’t under siege by college grads with a specialty in pretending to be Rachel Carson or Erin Brockovich, both frauds turned into legends thanks to the mythmaking abilities of the left-wing movement.
The legacy of Tiananmen Square would almost certainly have been reform or revolution, if not for a limited prosperity created through outsourced industries and cheap manufacturing. When the question arises, who killed the pro-democracy movement in China—it wasn’t the tanks, but their enablers, the liberals whose regulation and exploitation had made America into an uncomfortable place to do business. Those companies went elsewhere and the money they brought, propped up the Chinese Communist party. And the industries of the Chinese boom created such intense pollution that it is worse than the worst nightmares of the environmentalists. Pollution that they can and should take credit for, because they were the ones who made it happen.
Environmentalists who agitate against pollution caused by foreign companies in the Third World need to take a long hard look in the mirror
Environmentalists who agitate against pollution caused by foreign companies in the Third World need to take a long hard look in the mirror. In many cases it was their own campaigns which drove American companies into countries where they wouldn’t be so tightly regulated. Rather than apply reasonable regulations, they made it their goal to wipe out entire industries. They didn’t get their wish. Rather those industries moved abroad to places where there were no regulations at all. And the resulting misery that caused lies at their doorstep.
In Germany, the Greens have succeeded in their campaign against the domestic nuclear industry
In Germany, the Greens have succeeded in their campaign against the domestic nuclear industry. What is the net result of this? It further degrades Europe’s energy capabilities and moves it into Putin’s orbit. That empowers Russia to begin another campaign of conquest aimed at its former republics. That is what a “Green” victory really looks like. People freezing in their homes while a dictatorship sends its tanks and infantry on a new campaign of terror.
The environmental response is always something about solar and wind energy, two technologies that are still unready to meet a major country’s energy needs. But that’s exactly why the environmental movement champions them. Aside from the optics of “getting your energy from mother nature”, the real goal has always been to drive up the cost of energy. The environmental movement is not interested in cheap energy. If solar power provided energy cheaply, the greens would be marching against it. Any technology that provides cheap power is their enemy.
The mandate of the environmental movement is artificial scarcity. But artificial scarcity doesn’t exist in a global economy
The mandate of the environmental movement is artificial scarcity. But artificial scarcity doesn’t exist in a global economy. If you raise the price of energy production, resource mining or manufacturing, it will move abroad to less regulated countries. The price will still go up and there will be other long term consequences, but people will still find a way to get what they need. Like the rest of the left, the green movement has never learned that people will act in their own interests, rather than in thrall to their dogma. That if they can’t get it legally, they will get it illegally.
Americans are not about to freeze in their homes in winter or die of heatstroke in the summer. They are not about to drive midget cars to the lumber yard or let their families go hungry so that they can buy local. And that means more money flowing to Saudi Arabia and to China. It means more war and more repression. It means more families making do without and more firing squads and terrorist attacks. All for the greater glory of the environmental movement.
It will take a lot more work to push down the poverty level to the extent that Americans will bike to work or root through the garbage for food—two behaviors popular in the environmentally pretentious left. Until then there will always be other options. No matter how bad they are.
The left has created the poverty that it mocks
Wal-Mart owes more to the left’s war on small business and manufacturing than either would care to recognize. Its Made in China merchandise sold at the lowest possible price is the aftermath of an outsourced economy which has brought formerly prosperous towns to the poverty level, and compensated for it with cheap goods from the country that has taken their industries. The left has created the poverty that it mocks. And it has created the slave labor that makes the products which they deplore. It is responsible for all of it and it should take ownership of it.
And as China approaches a new war for Pacific dominance, the left may as well take credit for that too. If it wasn’t for the shift in economic power, driven by their job killing regulations, and their spending sprees, there might be reforms happening in Bejing, instead of the clatter of factories and war machines. And if a war does come, if tens of thousands or millions die, then it too will be on their heads. Along with the clouds of pollution and the body parts of political prisoners being shipped to America for their edification and exhibition.
These are just some of the green chickens coming home to roost. And there will be lots more of them flocking on over if this goes on.
The environmental movement’s manifest hypocrisy is that it causes the very things that it deplores
The environmental movement’s manifest hypocrisy is that it causes the very things that it deplores. Its campaigns against the nuclear industry, has sent billions overseas to countries which are developing their own nuclear weapons and intend to use them. By shutting down nuclear plants in America, they have made it much more likely that nuclear bombs will be detonated in America.
It destroyed American industry in the name of worker protection and pollution, and sent the factories to countries where workers have no rights and the pollution looks like something out of a post-apocalyptic movie. And reduced those former workers to the point where they have no choice but to buy those same slave labor products at a non-union store with the profits going to China’s war machine.
Domestic drilling? Allah preserve us. It’s much better to send the money over to Saudi Arabia, which funnels it to terrorists, who kill Americans, and cause global wars. Wars that the left claims to deplore. Oil wars. Their own damn oil wars. Wars in which they are equal partners with the oil companies and the Gulf royal families who have fattened their pockets from the energy hunger of a country where there is plenty of oil, but no way to get at it.
These are all victories for the environmental movements and defeats for anyone with any sanity or sense. But the environmental movement refuses to acknowledge the consequences of its actions. Instead it champions further domestic and international repression. Like every tyrannical ideology it knows only one solution to every problem, more laws, more chains, more investigations and prison cells for anyone who disobeys.
Repression and propaganda is the environmental movement’s solution to everything
Repression and propaganda is the environmental movement’s solution to everything. Its imperative is to destroy, impoverish, oppress and intimidate. It spreads hopeless misery around the world, with a smile. The countless victims of Rachel Carson’s malaria or the prisoners of the EPA go unnoticed as the latest children’s propaganda cartoon is rolled out. Its implicit message is always that there is a war on between the environmentalists and the people who just want to live their own lives. And that it is the obligation of the youth to put on their uniforms and enlist on their side.
Generations of tyranny later, the environmental movement has little positive to show for it, besides a few cleanups. But its leaders have profited from a regulatory state that impoverishes the country and promotes war and oppression around the world. It is time for those who have chosen to align themselves with a movement that exists to enrich environmental consultants, Saudi Arabia, the People’s Republic of China and Wall Street, while impoverishing Main Street to take a long hard look at what they have done. Before all the chickens really do come home to roost.

Did You Know About the Secret Cabal?

*******
The Secret Cabal










Part 1

By Dr. Stanley Monteith
February 11, 2011
NewsWithViews.com
David Rockefeller, the founder and honorary Chairman of the Trilateral Commission, has written,
"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." (italics and underline added - ed)
Most people know something is seriously wrong in our country, but they don't understand the cause of the problem or what can be done to remedy the situation. Why are there 20-25 million unemployed people in the United States? Why isn't the federal government enforcing our immigration laws? Why does the federal government give tax incentives to manufacturers who offshore their production and outsource their jobs? Who is responsible for the economic recession that is crippling our nation?
I will address those questions in this and several subsequent Radio Liberty articles, here at News With Views. When you read them you will discover:
I. The U.S. is controlled by a secret cabal.
II. The cabal is transferring U.S. jobs, factories, and wealth to other nations.
III. The cabal is implementing provision 10A of the Earth Charter.
If the U.S. is controlled by a secret cabal, why hasn't someone told the American people? Members of the covert organizations control most of the major media outlets in the U.S., and if a commentator or writer mentions the secret cabal, or permits someone to discuss it, the commentator or writer will lose their job, be blacklisted, and never work in the media again.
Many years ago a well-known San Francisco radio talk-show host told me he couldn't say what he believed on his program because if he told the truth he would be fired.
I recently had lunch with the editor of a major newspaper, and he told me he can't write what he believes, he must write what he is told to write.
Gary Webb, a Pulitzer prize winning investigative reporter who worked for the San Jose Mercury News, wrote a series of articles about the CIA's involvement in the drug industry. The San Jose Mercury News verified the information and published the articles, but several weeks later someone contacted the editor of the newspaper and told him to fire Gary Webb, and blacklist him. As a result, Gary Webb couldn't get a job at any newspaper in the United States, and several years later he committed suicide by shooting himself in the head twice to be certain he was dead.
That situation has existed in the United States for over a hundred years.
John Swinton was the editorial page editor of the New York Times from 1860-1870. When he addressed a group of journalists at the Twilight Club in New York City on April 12, 1883, he stated:
"There is no such thing in America as an independent press, unless it is in the country towns. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dare to write his honest opinions, and if you did you know beforehand they would never appear in print. I am paid $150 a week for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for doing similar things. If I should permit honest opinions to be printed in one issue of my paper, like Othello, before twenty-four hours, my occupation would be gone. . . . We are intellectual prostitutes."
Very little has changed since that time except for the fact that members of the secret cabal control more media outlets, and they have developed very sophisticated methods of controlling the reality of the American people.
On rare occasions a courageous member of the media has tried to expose the influence of the secret cabal. Richard Harwood worked for The Washington Post for 22 years, and during those years he wrote what he was told to write, but after Richard Harwood retired, he wrote an article titled "Ruling Class Journalists" that exposed the totalitarian influence of the Council on Foreign Relations. Why is that important? It's important because the CFR is one of the major "front organizations " for the secret cabal that controls our nation.
On October 30, 1993, Richard Harwood wrote:
"The president is a member. So is his secretary of state, the deputy secretary of state, all five of the undersecretaries, several of the assistant secretaries and the department's legal adviser. The president's national security adviser and his deputy are members. The director of Central Intelligence (like all previous directors) and the chairman of the Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board are members. The secretary of defense, three undersecretaries and at least four assistant secretaries are members. The secretaries of the department of housing and urban development, interior, health and human services, and the chief White House public relations man, David Gergen, are members along with the speaker of the House and the majority leader of the Senate."
If Richard Harwood's information is correct, why don't the American people realize the CFR controls the American government? Richard Harwood's article was published on a back page of The Washington Post, the article wasn't mentioned on radio or television, and the article was never quoted by other newspapers. A similar fate has befallen every effort to expose the existence of the secret cabal.
If you would like to verify the fact that most of the major media outlets are owned by "front organizations" affiliated with the secret cabal; i.e. the Trilateral Commission, the CFR, and the Bilderbergs, you should read Professor Ben Bagdikian's book, "The New Media Monopoly" because it identifies the five (or six) international corporations that control 90% of the major media outlets in the United States, and you should also read "The Membership List of the Brotherhood of Darkness," compiled by Radio Liberty, or Robert Gaylon Ross's book, "Who's Who of the Elite." The major corporations are:
Times Warner (AOL) (Trilateral Commission)
Bertelsmann (Trilateral Commission)
Viacom (CBS) (Council on Foreign Relations) (CFR)
Disney (ABC) (CFR)
GE-Comcast (NBC) (CFR)
Fox News: Ruppert Murdoch (CFR)
What is the Trilateral Commission? What is the CFR? Who controls the organizations? Where did they come from? What is their goal? We’ll discuss the answers to these questions in future articles.

Part 2

By Dr. Stanley Monteith
February 25, 2011
NewsWithViews.com
In our first installment, we left you with several questions to ponder. What is the Trilateral Commission? What is the CFR? Who controls the organizations? Where did they come from? What is their goal?
Before you can understand the answer to those questions, you must learn the purpose and goal of the secret society that Cecil Rhodes founded in 1891 because the CFR, the Bilderbergs, and the Trilateral Commission are descendents of that covert organization.
Professor Carroll Quigley was one of the leading historians of the twentieth century, and taught at Princeton and Harvard before he accepted a position at Georgetown University. Professor Quigley accidently discovered Cecil Rhodes' secret society. He researched it for twenty years, examined their secret records, and wrote two books about the covert movement. Professor Quigley's first book, "The Anglo-American Establishment," was completed in 1949 or 1950, but it was suppressed for 30 years. His second book, "Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time," was suppressed for 6-8 years, but both books are available today.
How did Professor Quigley learn about the secret society? Sir Alfred Zimmern was a member of the inner core of the Group from 1910 to 1922, but he became disillusioned, and gradually drifted away from the covert movement. Twenty-four years later, Sir Zimmern met Professor Quigley, and told him about the Group, but Zimmern made Quigley promise he wouldn't reveal the source of his information.
How do I know that took place? I visited Georgetown University in 1980, and read the letters Carroll Quigley wrote to Alfred Zimmern and the letters Alfred Zimmern wrote to Carroll Quigley as well as hundreds of other letters and documents. In addition, Professor Quigley's book, "The Anglo-American Establishment," mentions the fact that Alfred Zimmern was a member of the inner circle of the secret society from 1910 to 1922, but didn't reveal the source of that information.
Professor Quigley's second book, "Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time," chronicles the origin of Cecil Rhodes' secret society. Professor Quigley's text is printed in bold type. My analysis is printed in regular type:
"Until 1870 there was no professorship of fine arts at Oxford, but in that year . . . John Ruskin was named to such a chair. He hit Oxford like an earthquake, not so much because he talked about fine arts, but because he talked also about the empire and England's downtrodden masses, and above all because he talked about all three of these things as moral issues. Until the end of the nineteenth century the poverty-stricken masses in the cities of England lived in want, ignorance, and crime very much as they have been described by Charles Dickens. Ruskin spoke to the Oxford undergraduates as members of the privileged, ruling class. He told them that they were the possessors of a magnificent tradition of education, beauty, rule of law, freedom, decency, and self-discipline but that tradition could not be saved, and did not deserve to be saved, unless it could be extended to the lower classes in England itself and to the non-English masses throughout the world. If this precious tradition were not extended to these two great majorities, the minority of upper-class Englishmen would ultimately be submerged by these majorities and the tradition lost. To prevent this, the tradition must be extended to the masses and to the empire."
Professor Ruskin's message appealed to the idealism of many of the young men who heard the lecture, but they didn't realize John Ruskin was deeply involved in the occult, or that they were being recruited into a sinister program that would eventually destroy the British Empire, and the Christian foundation of western civilization.
Despite the fact that Professor Quigley was one of the leading historians of the twentieth century, I am certain he wasn't aware of the spiritual implications of John Ruskin's lecture, or the spiritual force that guided the events that followed.
Professor Quigley continued:
"Ruskin's message had a sensational impact. His inaugural lecture was copied out in longhand by one
undergraduate, Cecil Rhodes, who kept it with him for thirty years. Rhodes . . . feverishly exploited the diamond and goldfields of South Africa, rose to be prime minister of the Cape Colony, . . . contributed money to political parties, controlled parliamentary seats in both England and in South Africa, and sought to win a strip of British territory across Africa from the Cape of Good Hope to Egypt, and to join these two extremes together with a telegraph line and ultimately with a Cape-to- Cairo Railway. Rhodes inspired devoted support for his goals from others in South Africa and in England. With financial support from Lord Rothschild and Alfred Beit, he was able to monopolize the diamond mines of South Africa as De Beers Consolidated Mines and to build up a great gold mining enterprise as Consolidated Gold Fields."
How did Cecil Rhodes acquire his wealth? Lord Rothschild provided most of the funds that Cecil Rhodes used to acquire the diamond mines and gold production of South Africa. Why did Lord Rothschild provide the money? Cecil Rhodes was a Mason, and Lord Rothschild was deeply involved in the occult. Why is that important? It's important because many of the men who amassed great wealth at that time were Masons, or involved in the occult, and the same situation exists today.
When I examined Professor Carroll Quigley's papers in 1980, I found a copy of Cecil Rhodes' "Confession of Faith." The document was written in 1873, and it stated:
"The idea gleaming and dancing before ones eyes like a will-of-the wisp at last frames itself into a plan. Why should we not form a secret society with but one object the furtherance of the British Empire and the bringing of the whole uncivilised world under British rule for the recovery of the United States, for the making (of) the Anglo-Saxon race but one Empire."
Cecil Rhodes wanted to bring "the whole uncivilised world under British rule," and wanted to unite the world.
Professor Quigley continued:
"In the middle 1890's Rhodes had a personal income of at least a million pounds sterling a year (then about five million dollars) which was spent so freely for his mysterious purposes that he was usually overdrawn on his account. These purposes centered on his desire to federate the English-speaking people and to bring all the habitable portions of the world under their control. For this purpose Rhodes left part of his great fortune to found the Rhodes Scholarships at Oxford in order to spread the English ruling class tradition throughout the English-speaking world as Ruskin had wanted.
Among Ruskin's most devoted disciples at Oxford were a group of intimate friends including Arnold Toynbee, Alfred (later Lord) Milner, Arthur Glazebrook, George . . . Parkin, Phillip Lyttelton Gell, and Henry . . . Birchenough. These were so moved by Ruskin that they devoted the rest of their lives to carrying out his ideas. A similar group of Cambridge men . . . were also aroused by Ruskin's message and devoted their lives to extension of the British Empire and uplift of England's urban masses as two parts of one project which they called 'extension of the English-speaking idea'. . . .
This association was formally established on February 5, 1891, when Rhodes and Stead organized a secret society of which Rhodes had been dreaming for sixteen years. In this secret society Rhodes was to be leader, Stead, Brett (Lord Esher), and Milner were to form an executive committee; Arthur (Lord) Balfour, (Sir) Harry Johnston, Lord Rothschild, Albert (Lord) Grey, and others were listed as potential members of a 'Circle of Initiates'; while there was to be an outer circle known as the 'Association of Helpers' (later organized by Milner as the Round Table organization)."
How did Professor Quigley learn the details of the formation of Cecil Rhodes' secret society? That, and other crucial information will be revealed next time.

Last time I explained that when I examined Professor Carroll Quigley's papers in 1980, I found a copy of Cecil Rhodes' "Confession of Faith." The document was written in 1873, and it stated:
"The idea gleaming and dancing before ones eyes like a will-of-the wisp at last frames itself into a plan.

Professor Quigley continued:
"In the middle 1890's Rhodes had a personal income of at least a million pounds sterling a year (then about five million dollars) which was spent so freely for his mysterious purposes that he was usually overdrawn on his account. These purposes centered on his desire to federate the English-speaking people and to bring all the habitable portions of the world under their control. For this purpose Rhodes left part of his great fortune to found the Rhodes Scholarships at Oxford in order to spread the English ruling class tradition throughout the English-speaking world as Ruskin had wanted.

Arthur (Lord) Balfour, (Sir) Harry Johnston, Lord Rothschild, Albert (Lord) Grey, and others were listed as potential members of a 'Circle of Initiates'; while there was to be an outer circle known as the 'Association of Helpers' (later organized by Milner as the Round Table organization)."
How did Professor Quigley learn the details of the formation of Cecil Rhodes' secret society? Cecil Rhodes and William Stead organized the secret society on February 5, 1891, but several years later Stead was expelled because he disagreed with Rhodes' effort to incite the Boer War. As a result, William Stead described the formation of the secret society in his diary, and wrote several articles about the covert organization.
Professor Quigley wrote two books about Cecil Rhodes' secret society. He completed the manuscript of "The Anglo-American Establishment," in 1949 or 1950, but the cabal controlled most of the major publishing houses in the United States, so Professor Quigley couldn't get his book published. When I examined Professor Quigley's papers at Georgetown University in 1980, I found a partial copy of the manuscript, but the complete text of the book wasn't available. "The Anglo-American Establishment" was published the following year (1981), four years after Professor Quigley died, and on the first page of the book, Professor Quigley wrote:
"The Rhodes Scholarships, established by the terms of Cecil Rhodes's seventh will, are known to everyone. What is not so widely known is that Rhodes in five previous wills left his fortune to form a secret society which was to devote itself to the preservation and expansion of the British Empire.
And what does not seem to be known to anyone is that this secret society was created by Rhodes and his principal trustee, Lord Milner, and continues to exist to this day.
To be sure, this secret society is not a childish thing like the Ku Klux Klan, and it does not have any secret robes, secret handclasps, or secret passwords. It does not need any of these, since its members know each other intimately. It probably has no oaths of secrecy nor any formal procedure of initiation. It does, however, exist and holds secret meetings, over which the senior member present presides."
Initially the inner core of the secret society was called "The Circle of Initiates," the second tier was "The Association of Helpers," from 1901 to 1910 the third tier was called "Milner's Kindergarden," and from 1910 to 1920 it was called "The Round Table" or "the Group." The following year (1921) the cabal established the Council on Foreign Relations in the United States and branches of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) in the Commonwealth nations. Fifty-two years later (1973) the covert movement established the Trilateral Commission. What did they accomplish? The secret society incited the Boer War, they precipitated and prolonged World War I, they orchestrated World War II, they transferred Eastern Europe and China to the communists, they got the U.S. and Great Britain to fight a no-win-war in Korea and a no-win war in Vietnam, they destroyed the infrastructure of Afghanistan and Iraq, and the modern-day extension of the covert movement is trying to precipitate a war with Iran and the Muslim world. Why do they want to precipitate a war? They believe the chaos generated by the financial crisis and the suffering caused by the coming war will force nations to relinquish their sovereignty. Henry Kissinger said, "The alternative to a new international order is chaos." That has been the quest of the secret societies down through the ages. It was the intent of Cecil Rhodes' secret society, and it is the goal of the Trilateral Commission, the CFR, and the Bilderbergs today.
Senator Barry Goldwater warned the American people about the danger posed by the CFR and the Trilateral Commission in 1979 when he wrote:
"Whereas the Council on Foreign Relations is distinctly national in membership, the Trilateral Commission is international . . . 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."
Does the Trilateral Commission (and the CFR) control the U.S. government today? Yes. Between 1977 and 2008, every president and/or vice president of the United States was a member of the Trilateral Commission: i.e. Jimmy Carter, Walter Mondale, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and Dick Cheney. In addition, during the twenty-one year period (prior to 2009): six of the eight presidents of the World Bank were members of the TC, eight of the 10 U.S. Trade representatives were members of the TC, seven of the twelve secretaries of state were members of the TC, nine of the twelve secretaries of defense were members of the TC, and most of the other key positions in the Republican and Democrat administrations were held by members of the CFR. At the present time TC members hold 11-12 key positions in the Obama Administration, and most of the other key positions are held by members of the CFR.
Does the secret cabal exist today? Yes! David Rockefeller, Honorary Chairman of the CFR, and Founder and Honorary Chairman of the North American Chapter of the Trilateral Commission, stated (in his book, Memoirs):
"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." (italics and underline added-ed)
In subsequent letters I will explain why there are 20-25 million unemployed people in the U.S., why the federal government gives tax incentives to manufacturers who offshore their production, and the cause of the current economic recession.
I cannot tell you what lies ahead, but I fear the United States will soon be at war with Iran, and there will be chaos on the streets of our nation. What can you do? You can continue your effort to educate the American people, and hopefully you can lead them into a personal relationship with our Lord, Jesus Christ. That is our primary weapon because:
"O God, our help in ages past, Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast, And our eternal home!
Under the shadow of Thy throne, Still may we dwell secure;
Sufficient is Thine arm alone, And our defense is sure."

I began this series with four questions:
1. Why are there 20-25 million unemployed people in the United States?
2. Why isn't the federal government enforcing our immigration laws?
3. Why does the federal government give tax incentives to manufacturers that offshore their production and outsource their jobs?
4. Who is responsible for the economic recession that is crippling our nation?
The vast majority of the American people can't answer those questions because there is a conscious effort to conceal the truth. If you want to learn the cause of the high level of unemployment, or why the federal government doesn't enforce the immigration laws, you must recognize the fact that there are two possible explanations for every situation. The problem either occurred by accident (the accidental view of history), or it was planned (the conspiratorial view of history). Gary Allen and Larry Abraham proposed that concept in their book, None Dare Call it Conspiracy. The authors claimed major events are planned, and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) was (is) a "front" for a secret society that controls the world, Gary Allen completed his manuscript in 1971, but he couldn't find a publisher because the members of the Council on Foreign Relations controlled most of the major publishing houses in the U.S. at that time, and they didn't want the public to know about their organization. As a result, Gary Allen printed ten million paperback copies of his book, and distributed them by direct mail and through other channels.
Millions of people read None Dare Call It Conspiracy in the 1970s, and learned about the secret society that created the Council on Foreign Relations. Thousand of copies were initially available in used book stores, but they gradually disappeared because (I suspect) the Brotherhood of Darkness (BOD) purchased the books and systematically destroyed them. It is very difficult to find a copy of None Dare Call It Conspiracy in a used book store today. When I wrote this letter, Amazon had 14 new or used copies of the paperback edition of None Dare Call it Conspiracy. What happened to the other 10 million copies of Gary Allen's paperback book?
Does the BOD suppress books today? Certainly. If one of their publishing houses releases a book that reveals the truth, the book is recalled, and the copies are destroyed.
During most of the twentieth century, if an independent publisher released a book that exposed the CFR, the company was purchased, and the book was suppressed. That happened to Professor Quigley's book, Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time. The BOD purchased Macmillan, and "accidentally destroyed" the plates of the first half of Professor Quigley's book. A similar thing happened to Monica Jensen Stevenson's book, Kiss The Boys Goodbye. Monica told me someone purchased the company that republished her book, and "accidentally" shredded 5,000 copies.
In several instances, the Brotherhood of Darkness (BOD) has encouraged people to file libel suits against companies that published books that exposed "the conspiracy." That happened to the company that published Monica Jensen Stevenson's second book, Spite House, and TrineDay, the company that published Lt. Colonel Daniel Marvin's book, The Expendable Elite.
In recent years the situation has changed. Millions of people listen to alternative radio broadcasts every day, and they have learned about the BOD's subversive effort to establish world government, and that is important because:
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."
Thomas Jefferson penned those words in 1816, and they are still true today. If we are to remain free, we must expose the dark spiritual force (the BOD) that controls our nation.
Gary Allen's book, None Dare Call it Conspiracy, is still one of the best sources of information on the origin of the subversive movement that controls the United States, but the book doesn't discuss the Trilateral Commission or the spiritual force that energizes the effort to unite the world.
Gary Allen (and Larry Abraham) wrote:
"Cecil Rhodes' commitment to a conspiracy to establish World Government was set down in a series of wills described by Frank Aydelotte in his book, American Rhodes Scholarships. Aydelotte writes:
'The seven wills which Cecil Rhodes made between the ages of 24 and 46 [Rhodes died at age forty-eight] constitute a kind of spiritual autobiography. . . . Best known are the first (the Secret Society Will. . .) and the last, which established the Rhodes Scholarships. . . .'
In his first will Rhodes states his aim still more specifically: 'The extension of British rule throughout the world . . . the foundation of so great a power as to hereafter render wars impossible and promote the interests of humanity.'
The 'Confession of Faith' enlarges upon these ideas. The model for this proposed secret society was the Society of Jesus, though he mentions also the Masons."
Who was Frank Aydelotte, and why is he very important today? Frank Aydelotte was a Rhodes Scholar, he was president of the Association of Rhodes Trustees, and he wrote a book titled The Vision Of Cecil Rhodes. The following information comes from that book. Frank Aydelotte's words are printed in bold type. My remarks are printed in regular type:
"The seven wills which Cecil Rhodes made between the ages of twenty-four and forty-six constitute a kind of spiritual autobiography. While they contain no reference to the events of his life, they reflect the most important part of him, his ideals and aspirations, and the development of his thoughts as to how those aspirations could best be realized. . . . Best known are the first (the Secret Society Will, written while he was still an undergraduate), and the last, which established the Rhodes Scholarships. The gradual change in Rhodes's thinking which led him to give up his plan for a secret society and turn instead to a great and novel plan of international education can be traced in these interesting documents."
That is a very important passage. Frank Aydelotte claims Cecil Rhodes "gave up his plan for a secret society," but Frank Aydelotte knew that wasn't true because he led the American branch of the globalist movement for many years. He was also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) that was (is) a "front" for the Round Table (Milner) Group, and the Round Table was (is) a "front" for the Association of Helpers, the inner circle of Cecil Rhodes' secret society.
How do we know Cecil Rhodes created a secret society, and that the influence of that movement exists today?
(1) Cecil Rhodes discussed the secret society in his "Confession of Faith."
(2) Five of Cecil Rhodes' seven wills mentioned the fact that he wanted to establish a secret society. Rhodes' sixth will didn't mention the secret society because it was organized in 1891.
(3) William Stead wrote about the secret society after he was expelled from the organizaton.
(4) Cecil Rhodes wrote a letter to William Stead that mentions "our Society."
(5) H.G. Wells described the organization in a fictional book titled The New Machiavelli.
(6) Frederic Howe met several members of Milner's Kindergarten in 1919.
(7) The Milner Group (the secret society), and their American counterparts, organized the Royal Institute of International Affairs and the Council on Foreign Relations.
(8) Alfred Zimmern was a member of the secret society from 1910-1922.
(9) Professor Quigley "studied it (the secret society-ed) for twenty years, and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records."
(10) I examined Professor Quigley's papers (1980), and found the records of the secret meetings.
(11) The major media concealed the existence of the CFR until (about) 2000.
(12) David Rockefeller organized the Trilateral Commission in 1973 after Gary Allen exposed the CFR in 1972.
(13) The movement suppressed Professor Quigley's books.
According to Professor Quigley:
"This society has been called by various names. During the frst decade or so it was called 'the secret society of Cecil Rhodes,' or 'the dream of Cecil Rhodes.' In the second and third decades of its existence it was known as 'Milner's Kindergarten' (1901-1910) and as 'the Round Table Group' (1910-1920). Since 1920 it has been called by various names, depending on which phase of its activities was being examined. It has been called 'The Times crowd,' 'the Rhodes crowd,' the 'Chatham House crowd,' 'The All Souls group,' and 'the Cliveden set.'"
Next time, I’ll discuss further the personalities and events which have shaped the world we live in. My hope is that you will see the chain of events which so clearly point to a “Secret Cabal.”

One of the questions that I am asked most frequently is, “How do we know Cecil Rhodes created a secret society, and that the influence of that movement exists today?” Let me submit these facts.
(1) Cecil Rhodes discussed the secret society in his "Confession of Faith."
(2) Five of Cecil Rhodes' seven wills mentioned the fact that he wanted to establish a secret society. Rhodes' sixth will didn't mention the secret society because it was organized in 1891.

(8) Alfred Zimmern was a member of the secret society from 1910-1922.

(11) The major media concealed the existence of the CFR until (about) 2000.
(12) David Rockefeller organized the Trilateral Commission in 1973 after Gary Allen exposed the CFR in 1972.
(13) The movement suppressed Professor Quigley's books.
According to Professor Quigley:
"This society has been called by various names. During the frst decade or so it was called 'the secret society of Cecil Rhodes,' or 'the dream of Cecil Rhodes.' In the second and third decades of its existence it was known as 'Milner's Kindergarten' (1901-1910) and as 'the Round Table Group' (1910-1920). Since 1920 it has been called by various names, depending on which phase of its activities was being examined. It has been called 'The Times crowd,' 'the Rhodes crowd,' the 'Chatham House crowd,' 'The All Souls group,' and 'the Cliveden set.'"
Professor Quigley discussed the man who led the American contingent of the globalist movement:
"At the time the president of Swarthmore College was Frank Aydelotte, the most important member of the Milner Group in the United States since the death of George Louis Beer. Dr. Aydelotte was one of the original Rhodes Scholars, attending Brasenose in 1905-1907. He was president of Swarthmore from 1921 to 1940; has been American secretary to the Rhodes Trustees since 1918; has been president of the American Association of Rhodes Scholars since 1930; has been a trustee of the Carnegie Foundation since 1922; and was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations for many years. In 1937, along with three other members of the Milner Group, he received from Oxford . . . the honorary degree of Doctor of Civil Law."
Frank Aydelotte described the incident that changed Cecil Rhodes' life, and fashioned the world we live in today:
"Two of Rhodes's biographers, who knew him most intimately, Sir Herbert Baker and Sir James McDonald, believe that Rhodes found the inspiration for that great dream of his in the teaching of John Ruskin. . . . Ruskin was teaching and writing in the first enthusiasm of his professorship: his Inaugural Address had been delivered and published in 1870. . . . Ruskin's theme was the destiny of England. . . . He asks himself what are the virtues of the English and what the fate of England will be. His answer to these questions was a challenge to his youthful hearers:"
Professor Ruskin proclaimed:
"There is a destiny now possible to us - the highest ever set before a nation to be accepted or refused. We are still undegenerate in race; a race mingled of the best northern blood. We are not yet dissolute in temper, but still have the firmness to govern, and the grace to obey. We have been taught a religion of pure mercy, which we must either now betray, or learn to defend by fulfilling. And we are rich in an inheritance of honour, bequeathed to us through a thousand years of noble history, which it should be our daily thirst to increase with splendid avarice, so that Englishmen, if it be a sin to covet honour, should be the most offending souls alive.
And this is what she must either do, or perish: she must found colonies as fast and as far as she is able, formed of her most energetic and worthiest men; - seizing every piece of fruitful waste ground she can set her foot on, and there teaching these her colonists that their chief virtue is to be fidelity to their country, and that their first aim is to be to advance the power of England by land and sea: and that, though they live on a distant plot of ground, they are no more to consider themselves therefore disfranchised from their native land, than the sailors of her fleet do, because they float on distant waves."
The concept inspired Cecil Rhodes. He recorded John Ruskin's words in longhand, and carried them with him during the remainder of his life. Frank Aydelotte continued:
"So Ruskin: now Rhodes. In a curiously outspoken document, 'The Confession of Faith,' which he wrote about the time that he made his first will in 1877, Rhodes outlines the great purpose of his life:" He wrote: 'It often strikes a man to enquire what is the chief good in life: to one the thought comes that it is a happy marriage, to another great wealth, and, as each seizes on his idea, for that he more or less works for the rest of existence. To myself thinking over the same question the wish came to render myself useful to my country. I then asked myself how could I, and, after reviewing the various methods, I have felt that at the present day we are actually limiting our children and perhaps bringing into the world half the human beings we might owing to the lack of country for them to inhabit, that if we had retained America there would at the present moment be many millions more of English living.'" Frank Aydelotte deleted the section of Rhodes' "Confession of Faith" that stated:
"The idea gleaming and dancing before ones eyes like a will-of-the-wisp at last frames itself into a plan. Why should we not form a secret society with but one object the furtherance of the British Empire and the bringing of the whole uncivilised world under British rule for the recovery of the United States for the making the Anglo-Saxon race but one Empire. What a dream, but yet it is probable, it is possible."
Frank Aydelotte continued:
"In his first will Rhodes states his aim still more specifically:
'The extension of British rule throughout the world, the perfecting of a system of emigration from the United Kingdom and of colonization by British subjects of all lands wherein the means of livelihood are attainable by energy, labour and enterprise, and especially the occupation by British settlers of the entire Continent of Africa, The Holy Land, the valley of the Euphrates, the Islands of Cyprus and Candia, the whole of South America, the islands of the Pacific not heretofore possessed by Great Britain, the whole of the Malay Archipelago, the seaboard of China and Japan, the ultimate recovery of the United States of America as an integral part of the British Empire, the consolidation of the whole Empire, the inauguration of a system of Colonial Representation in the Imperial Parliament which may tend to weld together the disjointed members of the Empire, and finally the foundation of so great a power as to hereafter render wars impossible and promote the best interests of humanity.'"
Cecil Rhodes claimed he wanted to create "the foundation of so great a power as to hereafter render wars impossible," but that wasn't true. Cecil Rhodes and Alfred Milner (the British High Commissioner of South Africa) precipitated the Boer War because they wanted to expand the British Empire. The English army sustained 100,000 casualties in the war, and over twenty-eight thousand Afrikaner women and children were starved and/or died of typhoid fever in Milner's prison camps. Rhodes and Milner wanted the carnage to continue, but the British Parliament intervened and stopped the brutal war.
How can you verify that information?
(1) Professor Quigley's book, Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time, has an excellent section on the Boer War.
(2) Thomas Pakenham's book, The Boer War, is an excellent source of information.
(3) Professor Quigley's book, The Anglo-American Establishment contains the letter that Cecil Rhodes wrote to William Stead during the Boer War.
"That is the curse which will be fatal to our ideas - insubordination. Do not you think it is very disobedient of you? How can our Society be worked if each one sets himself up as the sole judge of what ought to be done? Just look at the position here. We three are in South Africa. . . . I myself, Milner, and Garrett, all of whom learned their politics from you. We are on the spot, and we are unanimous in declaring this war to be necessary. You have never been in South Africa, and yet . . . you fling yourself into a violent opposition to the war."
Cecil Rhodes died before the war ended, but the senseless carnage didn't deter the members of Rhodes' secret society because most of them were deeply involved in the occult. Alfred Milner (Lord Milner) inherited Cecil Rhodes' wealth. He assumed leadership of the secret society, controlled the Rhodes Scholarship fund, and brought thousands of young men to Oxford University to learn the importance of world government.
Next time I will tell you how the Milner Group (the secret society) precipitated World War I, and created World War II.
What can you do? (1) You can copy and distribute these letters. (2) You can pray for peace. (3) You can pray for the people in the Near East and the Middle East, and (4) You can pray for the brave members of the U.S. military who will fight another senseless war.

As you continue to investigate the Secret Cabal, there are four important questions that you should be prepared to answer.
(1) Why is the world changing?
• (2) Why did the U.S. participate in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the first Gulf War?
• (3) Why is the U.S. fighting in the Middle East today?
• (4) Who funds the Islamic terrorist movement?
(1) Why is the world changing? The world is changing because a small group of men and women direct the course of world events. David Rothkopf is a member of the CFR. He was managing director of Kissinger and Associates, and he knows the men and women who run the world. He wrote:
"A global elite has emerged over the past several decades that has vastly more power than any other group on the planet. . . .
That such a group exists is indisputable. Heads of state, CEOs of the world's largest companies, media barons, billionaires who are actively involved in their investments, technology entrepreneurs, oil potentates, hedge fund managers, private equity investors, top military commanders, . . . artists, even terrorist leaders and master criminals, meet the above criteria for membership. . . . I identified just over 6,000 people who qualify."
Why did David Rothkopf write a book about the "Global Elite," and why did the Establishment publish, promote, and distribute a book that exposed the Ruling Class? I believe they wanted to divert public attention from the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderbergs, the Trilateral Commission, and the other occult organizations that direct the course of world affairs. After David Rothkopf gained his readers' confidence, he ridiculed the people who believe the Trilateral Commission is a subversive organization, and wrote:
"'The Trilateral Commission is a joke' said one especially dismissive former member, who was a senior official in several Republican U.S. administrations. 'It's a bunch of has-beens who do not have power except to convene themselves - and to feel a little bit more important because they convened themselves.'"
David Rothkopf failed to mention the fact that between 1977 and 2008:
- Every president and/or Vice-President of the United States was a member of the North American Chapter of the Trilateral Commission.
- Six out of the eight presidents of the World Bank were members.
- Eight out of the ten U.S. Trade Representatives were members.
- Seven out of the twelve U.S. Secretaries of State were members.
- Nine out of the twelve Secretaries of Defense were members.
- At least eleven key people in the Obama administration are members today.
Are all those people "has-beens?"
(2) Why did the U.S. participate in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the first Gulf War?
World War I was fought to establish the League of Nations, and end war. World War II was fought to establish the United Nations, and end war. The Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the First Gulf War were fought to establish America's dominance, and end war.
(3) Why is the U.S. fighting in the Middle East today?
I believe the current conflict in the Middle Ease is a prelude to a much larger war (World War III) that will be fought to end war. The concept isn't new. Aristotle said:
"We make war that we may live in peace."
(4) Who funds the Islamic terrorist movement?
Prior to the 9/11 attack the Islamic terrorist movement was primarily funded by Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and the CIA. At the present time the U.S. finances Pakistan. The Pakistani government finances their army, the army finances their intelligence agency (the ISI), and the ISI finances the Islamic terrorist movement. The ISI is also funded by the CIA. Why is the U.S. funding a terrorist movement that is killing American soldiers in Afghanistan today?
This series of Radio Liberty letters deals with the secret cabal that controls the United States, and their effort to unite the world. That was the goal of the ancient secret societies, the Mystery Religions, the Kabbalah, the Gnostics, the Knights Templar, the Freemasons, and the Illuminati, but they invariably failed. Then, in 1877, a young man named Cecil Rhodes devised a plan that has succeeded, and, barring divine intervention, the occult movement will establish a world government.
Cecil Rhodes' inspiration came from John Ruskin who taught at Oxford University. Ruskin was deeply involved in the occult. Cecil Rhodes' financing (primarily) came from Lord Rothschild who was involved in the occult. Cecil Rhodes purchased most of the major gold and diamond mines of South Africa, amassed a fortune, and used his money to fund a secret society, and the Rhodes Scholarship Trust. Cecil Rhodes joined the Freemasons, and swore the required occult oaths. Cecil Rhodes' Plan was modified after he died, but his objective wasn't changed. Cecil Rhodes wanted to unite the world.
Frank Aydelotte led the Milner Group (the American contingent of the secret society) during the first half of the twentieth century. His book, The Vision of Cecil Rhodes, reproduced part of Cecil Rhodes' first will. Frank Aydelotte wrote:
"In his first will Rhodes states his aim still more specifically: 'The extension of British rule throughout the world, the perfecting of a system of emigration from the United Kingdom and of colonization by British subjects of all lands wherein the means of livelihood are attainable . . . and finally the foundation of so great a power as to here- after render wars impossible and promote the best interests of humanity.'"
How did Cecil Rhodes pursue his goal? He precipitated the Boer War because he wanted to create a peaceful world. What happened? The British army sustained 100,000 casualties, 18,000 - 28,000 women and children died in the concentration camps, and large regions of South Africa were destroyed.
Professor Quigley's book, Tragedy and Hope, describes the events that took place at that time, and similar events take place today.
Professor Quigley's words are reproduced in bold type. My response is printed in regular type.
"By 1895 the Transvaal Republic presented an acute problem. All political control was in the hands of a rural, backward, Bible-reading, racist minority of Boers, while all economic wealth was in the hands of a violent, aggressive majority of foreigners (Uitlanders), most of whom lived in the new city of Johannesburg. The Uitlanders, who were twice as numerous as the Boers and owned two-thirds of the land and nine- tenths of the wealth of the country, were prevented from participating in political life or from becoming citizens (except after fourteen years' residence) and were irritated by a series of minor pinpricks and extortions (such as tax differentials, a dynamite monopoly, and transportation restrictions) and by rumors that the Transvaal president, Paul Kruger, was intriguing to obtain some kind of German intervention and protection."
Professor Quigley referred to the Boers as "a rural, backward, Bible-reading, racist minority" because they were Christians, many were poor, and Professor Quigley supported Cecil Rhodes' effort to unite the world. Elsewhere, Professor Quigley wrote (on page 950 of Tragedy and Hope):
"I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years, and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960's, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments . . . in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known."
Professor Quigley continued:
"At this point in 1895, Rhodes made his plans to overthrow Kruger's government by an uprising in Johannesburg, financed by himself and Beit, and led by his brother Frank Rhodes, Abe Bailey, and other supporters, followed by an invasion of the Transvaal by a force led by Jameson from Bechuanaland and Rhodesia."
Cecil Rhodes bribed officials, and got several members of his secret society placed in key positions in the English government because he wanted support for the coming revolution in Johannesburg, and the invasion of the Transvaal.
Professor Quigley wrote:
"Flora Shaw used the The Times to prepare public opinion in England, while Albert Grey (a member of Rhodes' secret society - ed) and others negotiated with Colonial Secretary Joseph Chamberlain for the official support that was necessary. Unfortunately, when the revolt fizzled out in Johannesburg, Jameson raided anyway in an effort to revive it, and was easily captured by the Boers. The public officials involved denounced the plot, loudly proclaimed their surprise at the event, and were able to whitewash most of the participants in the subsequent parliamentary inquiry."
Similar things have taken place in the U.S.
• The Congressional investigation of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor concealed the truth.
• The Warren Commission concealed the truth.
• The 9/11 Commission concealed the truth.

Last week we saw that Cecil Rhodes bribed officials, and got several members of his secret society placed in key positions in the English government because he wanted support for the coming revolution in Johannesburg, and the invasion of the Transvaal.
Professor Quigley wrote:
"Flora Shaw used the The Times to prepare public opinion in England, while Albert Grey (a member of Rhodes' secret society - ed) and others negotiated with Colonial Secretary Joseph Chamberlain for the official support that was necessary. Unfortunately, when the revolt fizzled out in Johannesburg, Jameson raided anyway in an effort to revive it, and was easily captured by the Boers.

Similar things have taken place in the U.S.
• The Congressional investigation of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor concealed the truth.
• The Warren Commission concealed the truth.
• The 9/11 Commission concealed the truth.
Professor Quigley continued:
"Rhodes was stopped only temporarily. . . . For almost two years he and his friends stayed quiet, waiting for the storm to blow over. Then they began to act again. Propaganda, most of it true, about the plight of Uitlanders in the Transvaal Republic flooded England and South Africa from Flora Shaw, W.T. Stead, Edmund Garrett and others. . . . ."
Cecil Rhodes recognized the importance of the media. Flora Shaw wrote for The Times (in London), W.T. Stead published The Pall Mall Gazette and Review of Reviews that were read throughout the British Empire, and Edmund Garrett published The Cape Times,the major newspaper in South Africa.
Cecil Rhodes had Alfred Milner (second in command of the secret society) appointed high commissioner of South Africa, and he precipitated the Boer War. Professor Quigley wrote:
"Milner was made high commissioner of South Africa (1897); Brett (one of the four founding members of Rhodes' secret society - ed) worked his way into the confidence of the monarchy to become its chief political adviser during a period of more than twenty-five years (he wrote almost daily letters of advice to King Edward during his reign, 1901-1910."
A similar situation existed in the United States. Colonel Edward Mandell House met Woodrow Wilson in 1911, gained his confidence, controlled President Wilson's administration from 1913-1918, and influenced other world leaders during that era.
Fifteen years later (in 1932) Colonel House met Franklin Delano Roosevelt, gained his confidence, convinced FDR he should expand the power of the federal government, and "was called by some the Hidden Master of the New Deal."
How did Colonel House control President Wilson and President Roosevelt? He was a mystic, and he was deeply involved in the occult.
Colonel House (and other members of the Inquiry) met the members of the Milner Group (Rhodes' secret society) at Versailles, and established the Council on Foreign Relations that controlled the U.S. government until David Rockefeller organized the Trilateral Commission in 1973.
Professor Quigley continued:
"By a process whose details are still obscure, a brilliant, young graduate of Cambridge, Jan Smuts, who had been a vigorous supporter of Rhodes and acted as his agent in Kimberley as late as 1895 and who was one of the most important members of the Rhodes-Milner group in the period 1908-1950, went to the Transvaal and, by violent anti-British agitation, became state secretary of that country (although a British subject) and chief political adviser to President Kruger. . . ."
I believe Cecil Rhodes sent Jan Smuts to the Transvaal to precipitate the Boer War. How did Jan Smuts incite the conflict? He gained the confidence of President Paul Kruger, ranted against the British government, criticized (his friend) Alfred Milner, the High Commissioner of South Africa, became secretary of state, and convinced President Kruger that the British troop movements that were taking place foreshadowed a British invasion of the Transvaal Republic. As a result, Paul Kruger told Jan Smuts to send an ultimatum to Alfred Milner, and that precipitated the Boer War.
A similar situation exists in Iran today. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad makes ridiculous statements, threatens Israel, rants against the United States, and does everything he can to foment a war with the U.S. that will destroy his nation.
Professor Quigley continued:
"Milner made provocative troop movements on the Boer frontiers in spite of the vigorous protests of his commanding general in South Africa, who had to be removed; and, finally, war was precipitated when Smuts drew up an ultimatum insisting that the British troop movements cease and when this was rejected by Milner."
Cecil Rhodes' agent, Jan Smuts, wrote the ultimatum that precipitated the Boer War.
Professor Quigley continued:
"The Boer War (1899-1902) was one of the most important events in British imperial history. The ability of 40,000 Boer farmers to hold off ten times as many British for three years, inflicting a series of defeats on them over that period, destroyed faith in British power. Although the Boer republics were defeated and annexed in 1902, Britain's confidence was so shaken that it made a treaty with Japan in the same year providing that if either signer became engaged in war with two enemies in the Far East the other signer would come to the rescue."
The agreement led to the Russo-Japanese war (1904-1905) that killed 130,000 soldiers and 20,000 civilians.
Why did Cecil Rhodes incite the Boer War? He wanted to establish "the foundation of so great a power as to hereafter render wars impossible and promote the best interests of humanity."
Eighty-six years after the Russo-Japanese War ended David Rockefeller is said to have addressed the Bilderberg meeting held in Sand, Germany, and stated:
"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. . . . It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during these years. . . . But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government which will never again know war but only peace and prosperity for the whole of humanity."
Note the similarity between the words in Cecil Rhodes' first will, and David Rockefeller's statement.
• Why did Colonel House, J.P. Morgan, and the members of the Inquiry plunge the United States into World War I?
• Why did the CFR (and other) American corporations build the military equipment the Nazis used during World War II? (I will cover that subject next month).
• Why did the U.S. fight no-win wars in Korea, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf?
Many of the men who control the wealth of our nation are involved in the occult, and they serve Lucifer who wants to destroy God's highest creation. We must oppose them because:
"War is at best barbarism. . . . Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, more vengeance, more desolation. War is hell." (attributed to General Sherman in 1877)
And Rudyard Kipling wrote:
"When the Cambrian measures were forming,
They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons,
that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us
and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said:
"Stick to the Devil you know.'"
Rudyard Kipling, The Gods of the Copybook Headings
We must tell the American people about the current effort to incite a war with Iran, and the dire consequences of the coming war. Will the public heed our warning? Our job is to tell them, and recognize the fact that the battle is the Lord's because:
"My sin - oh the bliss of this glorious tho't -
My sin - not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
And, Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll,
The trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend,
'Even so' it is well with my soul."

The Origin of World War I
Dear Friend of Radio Liberty,
Are you prepared for the difficult period that lies ahead? If you want to survive the coming turmoil, you must understand the origin of the bloody conflicts of the twentieth century because "those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." Why is the information important today? It's important because the covert movement that precipitated the Boer War, World War I, the Russian Revolution, World War II, the Communist takeover of China, the Korean War, the Communist takeover in Cuba, the Vietnam War, the Iranian revolution, the First Gulf War, and the Second Gulf War - that group (the Brotherhood of Darkness - BOD) is trying to precipitate a genocidal war with the Muslim world. If they succeed, they will bankrupt our nation, and destroy Western civilization.
Why does the BOD want to incite a war with the Muslim world? They believe the resulting chaos will end national sovereignty, and unite the world.
David Rockefeller revealed the BOD's goal when he addressed the Bilderberg meeting in 1991:
"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. . . . It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during these years . . . the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government which will never again know war but only peace and prosperity for the whole of humanity."
Two French newspapers published the statement, and Hilaire du Berrier verified it, but David Rockefeller's statement didn't appear in American publications because the men and women who control the U.S. media attend Bilderberg meetings, and they wanted to conceal the existence of the subversive organization.
David Rockefeller reiterated his goal (the BOD plan) in 2002, in his autobiography where he wrote: (page 405 of 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." (italics added - ed)
My June 2010 Radio Liberty letter discussed Cecil Rhodes' secret society (the Brotherhood of Darkness - BOD), and their effort to unite the world. The covert group incited the Boer War (1899) because they wanted to expand the British Empire, and end war. The English army sustained 100,000 casualties, the Boer army lost 7,000 men, and 18,000-28,000 women and children died in concentration camps, but the BOD won that conflict, and began planning their next war.
If you try to determine the cause of World War I, you won't find a logical explanation because the BOD controlled most of the major media outlets, and the truth. What, or who, was responsible for the Great War? Professor Carroll Quigley studied that period, and compiled a list of those who controlled the British government at that time. Some were members of Cecil Rhodes' secret society. They were Imperialists, and all were close to the Milner Group.
Professor Quigley wrote:
"After the split in the Liberal Party in 1886, it was the members of the Cecil Bloc who became Unionists. . . . (and - ed) as a result, the Cecil Bloc became increasingly a political force. . . . almost all the other members of the Bloc were Unionists or Conservatives. The chief exceptions were the four leaders of the Liberal Party . . . who were strong imperialists: Rosebery, Asquith, Edward Grey, and Haldane. These four supported the Boer War, grew increasingly anti- German, supported the World War in 1914, and were close to the Milner Group politically, intellectually, and socially."
Why is that important? It's important because Cecil Rhodes' secret society (and their allies) incited the Boer War, and many of the same men (the Milner Group) incited World War I. Some were members of a dinner club called the "Coefficients" that played an important role in British politics, and there were other men who wanted a war. Some were Masons, others were affiliated with the occult movement that permeated the world at that time.
Professor Quigley listed the men who controlled the British government when the Great War began:
Lord Robert Cecil. He was a wealthy banker, held several important posts in the British government during the First World War, was a member of the Coefficients, and a member of Cecil Rhodes' secret society.
Lord Herbert H. Asquith. He was British Prime Minister from 1908-1916, helped Sir Edward Grey precipitate World War I, and was a friend of Lord Milner. His wife, Margaret Asquith, had a brief affair with Lord Milner, and she often had dinner with Arthur Balfour who was a member of Cecil Rhodes' secret society.
Sir Edward Grey. He was the British Foreign Minister from 1905 to 1916. He devised the secret treaty that precipitated World War I, was a member of the Coefficients, a close friend of Lord Milner, and he may have been a covert member of Cecil Rhodes' secret society.
Viscount Haldane. He was Secretary of State for War, and sent military supplies to France prior to World War I. He was a member of the Coefficients, and was a close friend of Lord Milner.
Lord Rosebery. He was Prime Minister from 1894-1895 (during the Jameson Raid). He was married to Lord Rothschild's daughter, and was a member of Cecil Rhodes' secret society.
Lord Rothschild. He was a founding member of Cecil Rhodes' secret society, and when he resigned, his son-in law (Lord Rosebery) replaced him.
Lord Alfred Milner. He led the covert movement (Rhodes' secret society) after Cecil Rhodes died in 1902. He was the second most powerful man in the British government after 1916 (during the last two years of the Great War), and he was a member of the Coefficients.
What was the "Coefficients," and why was it important? H.G. Wells' book, Experiment in Autobiography, states:
"The only representative of that Boer War Imperialist group I ever met was Lord Milner. He seemed to me a bold-thinking man, hampered by politic reservations. . . . I came across him in a curious little talking and dining club, the 'Coefficients,' which met monthly throughout the session (of Parliament - ed) between 1902 and 1908 to discuss the future of this perplexing, promising, and frustrating Empire of ours.
In certain respects our club represented something that seems now, I think, to have faded out from contemporary English life. It had the gestures if not the spirit of free interrogation. It had an air of asking 'What are we doing with the world? What are we going to do?'"
Most of the members were Imperialists, and many of them wanted another war.
"The club included the queerest diversity of brains. Its foundation was, I believe, suggested by Mrs. Sidney Webb. It was inaugurated by a meeting in the flat of Sir Edward Grey and Mr. Haldane . . . in Whitehall Court and the first assembly included such incongruous elements as Bertrand Russell . . . Sidney Webb . . . Leo Maxse (already in 1902 denouncing the German Peril and demanding the Great War), . . . L.S. Amery, and H.J. Mackinder. . . . Later on we were joined by Lord Robert Cecil, Michael Sadler, . . . Lord Milner, John Hugh Smith, Colonel Repington . . . and others."
The members were bankers, financiers, military leaders, and socialists, and they controlled the British government at that time.
H.G. Wells continued:
"The British Empire, I said, had to be the precursor of a world-state or nothing. I appealed to geography. It was possible for the Germans and Austrians to hold together in their Zollverein because they were placed like a clenched fist in the center of Europe. But the British Empire was like an open hand all over the world. It had no natural economic unity and it could maintain no artificial economic unity. Its essential unity must be a unity of great ideas embodied in the English speech and literature. . . . I was still clinging to the dear belief that the English-speaking community might play the part of leader and mediator towards a world commonweal. It was to be a free-trading, free-speaking, liberating flux for mankind. Russell, Pember Reeves and Webb and possibly Haldane and Grey had, I think, a less clearly expressed disposition in the same direction."
Sir Edward Grey attended the monthly meetings, and in 1905 he presented the plan that precipitated World War I. Bertrand Russell described that event:
"In 1902 I became a member of a small dining club called 'The Coefficients', got up by Sidney Webb for the purpose of considering political questions from a more or less Imperialist point of view. It was in this club that I first became acquainted with H.G. Wells, of whom I had never heard until then. His point of view was more sympathetic to me than that of any other member. Most of the members, in fact, shocked me profoundly. . . . One evening Sir Edward Grey (not then in office) made a speech advocating the policy of the Entente, which had not yet been adopted by the Government. I stated my objections to the policy very forcibly, and pointed out the likelihood of its leading to war, but no one agreed with me, so I resigned from the club. It will be seen that I began my opposition to the first war at the earliest possible moment."
Sir Edward Grey was appointed British Foreign Secretary in 1906, and implemented his plan to incite the first World War. He got the leaders of France and Russia to sign a secret treaty that stated that if either country was attacked (by Germany or Austria-Hungary), they would join England, and crush their opponent. Sir Edward concealed the existence of the treaty, and lied to Parliament when he was asked about the secret agreement.

Sir Edward Grey was appointed British Foreign Secretary in 1906, and implemented his plan to incite the first World War. He got the leaders of France and Russia to sign a secret treaty that stated that if either country was attacked (by Germany or Austria-Hungary), they would join England, and crush their opponent. Sir Edward concealed the existence of the treaty, and lied to Parliament when he was asked about the secret agreement.
When I researched Professor Quigley's papers at Georgetown University, I found a notation, presumably written by Cecil Rhodes, that stated: "I want both Greys." I suspect the note referred to Albert Grey (Earl Grey) and Sir Edward Grey, but Professor Quigley didn't mention Sir Edward when he compiled his list of the members of Cecil Rhodes' secret society. Was Sir Edward Grey a covert member of the secret organization? I don't know, but that isn't important. Sir Edward was closely aligned with the secret society during the Boer War, he was aligned with the Milner Group, and he implemented the "encirclement policy" that precipitated World War I.
Kaiser Wilhelm believed Sir Edward Grey incited the war. The Kaiser wrote:
"Delcasse (the French Foreign Minister - ed) also has a large share in the guilt for the World War, and Grey an even larger share, since he was the spiritual leader of the 'encircle- ment policy,' which he faithfully pushed forward and brought to completion."
Sir Edward's friend, Viscount Haldane (the Secretary of War) sent military supplies to France and Belgium before the war began. Kaiser Wilhelm wrote:
"When our troops advanced in 1914 they found, in northern France and along the Belgian frontier, great stores of English soldiers' greatcoats. According to statements by the inhabitants, these were placed there during the last years of peace. Most of the English infantrymen who were made prisoners by us in the summer of 1914 had no greatcoats; when asked why, they answered, quite naively: 'We are to find our greatcoats in the stores at Maubeuge, Le Quesnoy, etc., in the north of France and in Belgium.'
It was the same regarding maps. In Maubeuge great quantities of English military maps of northern France and Belgium were found by our men; copies of these have been shown to me. The names of places were printed in French and English. . . . These maps date from 1911 and were engraved at Southampton.
The stores were established by England, with the permission of the French and Belgian Governments, before the war, in the midst of peace."
Sir Edward Grey, Lord Asquith, Lord Haldane, Lord Cecil, and the Milner Group precipitated the First World War, but other people helped them.
Professor Quigley knew the Milner Group was primarily responsible for the Great War, but he didn't provide that information when he described the onset of World War I: (Tragedy and Hope, page 224)
"Vienna received news of the assassination of the heir to the Hapsburg throne on June 28, 1914. The Austrians were convinced of the complicity of the Serbian government although they had no real proof. We now know that high officials of the Serbian government knew of the plot and did little to prevent it."
Why didn't the Serbian government try to prevent the assassination? I suspect some "high officials" were Freemasons who wanted to destroy the European monarchies.
Dr. Dennis Cuddy covered that subject in his book, Now is the Dawning of the New Age New World Order. He wrote:
"The First World War began August 1-4, 1914, because of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand on June 28 by the 'Black Hand,' which James Billington in Fire in the Minds of Men claims was a 'progeny of Freemasonry.' The assassin was Gavrilo Princep, and in Mary Edith Durham's The Sarajevo Crime (1925), one learns that Princep testified at his trial that his colleague, Ciganovitch, 'told me he was a Freemason. . . .[and] told me that the Heir Apparent (Franz Ferdinand) had been condemned to death by a Freemason's lodge."
Kaiser Wilhelm believed the Masons were partially responsible for the Great War. He wrote:
"I have been informed that an important role was played in the preparation of the World War directed against the monarchical Central Powers by the policy of the international 'Great Orient Lodge'; a policy extending over many years and always envisaging the goal at which it aimed. But the German Great Lodges, I was furthermore told - with two exceptions wherein non-German financial interests are paramount and which maintains secret connection with the 'Great Orient' in Paris - had no relationship to the 'Great Orient.' They were entirely loyal and faithful, according to the assurance give me by the distinguished German Freemason who explained to me this whole inter- relationship, which had, until then, been unknown to me. He said that in 1917 an inter- national meeting of the lodges of the 'Great Orient' was held, after which there was a subsequent conference in Switzerland; at this the following program was adopted: Dismemberment of Austria-Hungary, democratization of Germany, elimination of the House of Hapsburg, abdication of the German Emperor, restitution of Alsace-Lorraine to France, union of Galicia with Poland, elimination of the Pope and the Catholic Church, elimination of every state Church in Europe."
Was Professor Quigley aware of the fact that the Masons wanted to destroy the European monarchies, and the Catholic Church? I have read almost everything that Professor Quigley wrote about Cecil Rhodes, his secret society, and the covert organizations they spawned: i.e. the Milner Group, the Round Table Group, the Royal Institute for International Affairs, and the Council on Foreign Relations. When I went to Georgetown University in 1980, I researched Professor Quigley's papers. I talked to his wife, his mistress, his closest friend, and I learned a great deal about Professor Quigley. For that reason, I am certain he wasn't aware of the fact that Cecil Rhodes, Lord Milner, and many of their followers, were either Masons, or involved in the occult movement that existed at that time.
There is a great deal more to this story, but it will have to wait until next time.
What is taking place today?
It appears the BOD has postponed their effort to incite a war with Iran.
Unemployment is rising, the U.S. economy is collapsing, and a growing number of people realize something is seriously wrong.
"The Gods of the Market" may have lost control of the U.S. economy, and if that is true, we may be able to defeat them.
Rudyard Kipling didn't believe in Christianity, or "Eternal Truth," but I believe he was inspired to write:
"On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life (Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife) Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith, And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said:
"The Wages of Sin is Death." In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all, By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul; But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy, And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "If you don't work you die."
Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more."
We are entering a difficult period, but that will provide an opportunity to bring people to our Lord.

Part 10

Last time, we discussed the origin of World War I. Cecil Rhodes, Alfred Milner, and most of the members of their cabal, were either Masons, or involved in other occult organizations. In addition, a German Mason told the Kaiser the Grand Orient Freemasonic lodge orchestrated the events that led up to the Great War.
I believe both groups were involved, but they were aided by leaders in other nations who were involved in the occult.
What part did the Milner Group (Rhodes' secret society) play? Sir Edward Grey, the British Foreign Secretary, was closely affiliated with the Milner Group; he got Russia and France to sign secret agreements that committed them to join England if there was a major war in Europe. Several years later, when World War I was imminent, Sir Edward Grey denied the existence of the secret agreements because the Cabinet and the British people didn't want to be involved in a European war.
Professor Quigley researched that period. He admired the idealistic goal of the Milner Group (the Cecil Bloc), but they weren't concerned about the consequences of their actions. Professor Quigley wrote (in his book, The Anglo-American Establishment):
"The second generation of the Cecil Bloc was famous at the time. . . . This group, flitting about from one great country house to another or from one spectacular social event to another in the town houses of their elders, has been preserved for posterity in the auto- biographical volumes of Margot Tennant Asquith. . . . "The frivolity of this group can be seen in Margot Tennant's statement that she obtained for Milner his appointment to the chairmanship of the Board of Inland Revenue in 1892 merely by writing to Balfour and asking for it after she had a too brief romantic interlude with Milner in Egypt. As a respected scholar of my acquaintance has said, this group did everything in a frivolous fashion including entering the Boer War and the First World War."
Professor Quigley described the terrifying power of the Milner Group:
"The influence of Chatham House appears in its true perspective, not as the influence of an autonomous body but as merely one of many instruments in the arsenal of another power. When the influence which the Institute wields is combined with that controlled by the Milner Group in other fields - in education, in administration, in newspapers and periodicals - a really terrifying picture begins to emerge. This picture is called terrifying not because the power of the Milner Group was used for evil ends. It was not. On the contrary, it was generally used with the best intentions in the world - even if those intentions were so idealistic as to be almost academic. The picture is terrifying because such power, whatever the goals at which it may be directed, is too much to be entrusted safely to any group. . . . No country that values its safety should allow what the Milner Group accomplished in Britain - that is, that a small number of men should be able to wield such power in administration and politics, should be given almost complete control over the publication of the documents relating to their actions, should be able to exercise such influence over the avenues of information that create public opinion, and should be able to monopolize so completely the writing and the teaching of the history of their own period."
Very little has changed since that time. Cecil Rhodes' secret society incited the Boer War and spawned the Milner Group (1902), the Milner Group spawned the Round Table Group (1909), the Round Table Group incited World War I and spawned the Royal Institute of International Affairs (1919) and the Council on Foreign Relations (1921), and the CFR and the RIIA spawned the Bilderberg Group in 1954, and the Trilateral Commission in 1973. At the present time the organizations (the CFR, the RIIA, the Bilderberg Group, and the TC), have "almost complete control over the publication of the documents relating to their actions," they "exercise . . . influence over the avenues of information that create public opinion," and they "monopolize . . . completely the writing and the teaching of the history of their own period."
How did Sir Edward Grey precipitate the First World War? Kaiser Wilhelm wrote;
"Declasse also has a large share in the guilt for the World War, and Grey an even larger share, since he was the spiritual leader of the 'encirclement policy,' which he faithfully pushed forward and brought to completion."
Dr. Dennis Cuddy researched that period, and wrote:
"June 28: Austrio-Hungarian archduke Franz Ferdinand is assassinated, and this serves as the catalyst for the beginning of World War I. On July 20 and 29, (1914 - ed) British secretary of state Sir Edward Grey ('close to the Milner Group politically, intellectually, and socially,' according to Prof. Quigley) will make certain statements to the German ambassador to England (Prince Karl Max Lichnowsky) that do not make it clear Britain will enter the conflict (World War I) if Germany goes to war."
Sir Edward Grey devised the "encirclement policy" that led to World War I in 1905. He implemented the policy when he became Foreign Secretary in 1906, and he deceived the Kaiser in 1914 because Grey didn't want the Kaiser to mediate the dispute between Serbia and Austria.
One of the best sources of information on the events that took place at that time is Ambassador Gerard's book, My First Eighty-three Years in America. James Gerard was U.S. Ambassador to Germany in 1914, and, although he wasn't aware of the covert agenda of the Milner Group, he recognized the fact that Sir Edward Grey precipitated the Great War.
Ambassador Gerard wrote:
"In this question of the outbreak of war, it must be noted that Sir Edward Grey missed a great opportunity. If, in the beginning, he had told the German Ambassador that England would go to war against Germany . . . the world might have been spared a great war - a war which sowed the seeds of another and greater one twenty-five years after."
Austria declared war on Serbia on July 28, Germany invaded Belgium on August 3, and Ambassador Gerard visited Kaiser Wilhelm on August 10.
Ambassador Gerard wrote:
"Early in August 1914 President Wilson sent me a message through the State Department stating that the United States stood ready at any time to mediate between the warring powers. He directed me to present this proposal to the Emperor in person. An audience with the Emperor (the Kaiser - ed) was arranged for me for the morning of August 10. The Emperor was seated at an iron table in the little garden of the palace in Berlin. . . . In formal language I made my offer. It was declined.
Then the Emperor asked me to sit down and talk to him. . . .
The Emperor, on one of the few occasions that I saw him in a thoughtful mood, hesitated for a moment and then said slowly, 'No, the coming in of the English has changed the whole situation.
They are an obstinate race. They will never stop fighting.'
After some further discussion the Emperor said he would send a personal message to President Wilson in answer to his offer. He then wrote in pencil, on some large telegraph blanks lying on the table, a personal message to the President. . . . Of the most historical interest is that part of the message referring to Sir Edward Grey, the British Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the violation of Belgian neutrality.
The message was as follows:
For the President of the United States personally: 10/VIII 14.
1. H.R.H. Prince Henry was received by his Majesty King George V in London, who empowered him to transmit to me verbally, that England would remain neutral if war broke out on the Continent involving Germany and France, Austria and Russia. This message was telegraphed to me by my brother from London after his conversation with H.M. the King, and repeated verbally on the twenty-ninth of July."
The King's message convinced Kaiser Wilhelm there wouldn't be a major war, so the Kaiser didn't try to mediate the dispute between Serbia and Austria. Why did the King of England deceive his cousin? 
More about that next week.

This message was telegraphed to me by my brother from London after his conversation with H.M. the King, and repeated verbally on the twenty-ninth of July."
The King's message convinced Kaiser Wilhelm there wouldn't be a major war, so the Kaiser didn't try to mediate the dispute between Serbia and Austria. Why did the King of England deceive his cousin? The Milner Group, and their supporters, controlled the British government; Lord Asquith was Prime Minister, Sir Edward Grey was Foreign Secretary, Lord Haldane was Secretary of War, and Lord Esher was the King's personal advisor.
Who was Lord Esher? He was one of the four founding members of Cecil Rhodes' secret society, and he was the King's personal advisor. Lord Esher believed the coming war would regenerate the nations of the world. Is that true? I am indebted to Dr. Dennis Cuddy for calling my attention to the following entries in Lord Esher's diary.
On August 3, 1917, Lord Esher wrote in his Journal:
"No American is likely to be killed before November. This is unfortunate, as (President - ed) Wilson may require to be steadied before then and only the death of young Americans can ensure him stability."
Later that day Lord Esher wrote a letter to L.B.:
"No one can truly say that the sufferings of the world have been in vain; for they have regenerated all nations, and ours in particular. Can there be any doubt but that the war has made for progress and not for retrogression?"
Twenty-one million people died during the Great War; fifty million people were injured. Did that regenerate the world?
Eight days later (August 11, 1917) Lord Esher wrote:
"Mr. Henry Morgenthau asked me to call on him. . . (He) was one of the principal supporters of President Wilson in the campaign for the Presidency, and he possesses the friendship and confidence of the President. .
From the day of his election to the day when America declared war President Wilson and his friends have kept steadily in view the moral regeneration of their country; and it is with this objective before them that, in spite of the horrors of war, they are ready to sacrifice the lives of American citizens. The war appears to these idealists a Crusade. . . .
Mr. Morgenthau is aware, and he realises the importance upon the morale of the French army and the French people of cementing the Alliance by shedding American blood at the earliest possible moment.
If many lives have to be sacrificed, the influence upon the American people can only be beneficent."
Ambassador Gerard recorded the Kaiser's message to President Wilson. Kaiser Wilhelm II wrote:
"2. My Ambassador in London transmitted a message from Sir E. Grey to Berlin saying that only in case France was likely to be crushed England would interfere."
The King's message and Sir Edward Grey's message convinced the Kaiser there was no danger of a major war, so he didn't try to mediate the dispute. Serbia mobilized during the last week of July, Austria declared war on Serbia on July 28, and I suspect the Masonic movement held key positions in both governments.
Ambassador Gerard recorded Kaiser Wilhelm's message to President Wilson;
"3. On the thirtieth my Ambassador in London reported that Sir Edward Grey in course of a 'private' conversation told him that if the conflict remained localized between Russia - not Serbia - and Austria, England would not move, but if we 'mixed' in the fray she would take quick decisions and grave measures; i.e., if I left my ally Austria in the lurch to fight alone England would not touch me."
At that point, the Kaiser being confused by the conflicting messages, wrote:
"4. This communication being directly counter to the King's message to me, I telegraphed to H.M. (the King) on the twenty-ninth or thirtieth, thanking him for (his-ed) kind messages through my brother and begging him to use all his power to keep France and Russia - his Allies - from making any war-like preparations calculated to disturb my work of mediation, stating that I was in constant communication with H.M. the Czar. In the evening the King kindly answered that he had ordered his Government to use every possible influence with his Allies to refrain from taking any provocative military measures. At the same time H.M asked me if I would transmit to Vienna the British proposal that Austria was to make Belgrade and a few other Serbian towns a strip of country as a 'main-mise' to make sure that the Serbian promises on paper should be fulfilled in reality. This proposal was in the same moment telegraphed to me from Vienna for London, quite in conjunction with the British proposal; besides, I had telegraphed to H.M. the Czar (the Kaiser's cousin-ed) the same as an idea of mine, before I received the two communications from Vienna and London, as both were of the same opinion.
5. I immediately transmitted the telegrams vice versa to Vienna and London. I felt that I was able to tide the question over and was happy at the peaceful outlook."
The Kaiser tried to mediate the crisis. Why did he fail? The Masons wanted to destroy the European monarchies. The Milner Group wanted to unite the world, and the occult movement wanted to shed the blood of millions of people.
Kaiser Wilhelm continued:
"6. While I was preparing a note to H.M. the Czar the next morning, to inform him that Vienna, London and Berlin were agreed about the treament of affairs, I received the telephones from H.E. the Chancellor that in the night before the Czar had given the order to mobilize the whole of the Russian Army, which was, of course, also meant against Germany; whereas up till then the southern armies had been mobilized against Austria."
Why did the Czar mobilize his army, and precipitate World War I?
Professor Quigley described the events that led to the war:
"Serbia, confident of Russian support, answered (Austria - ed) in a reply which was partly favorable, partly evasive, and in one particular at least (use of Austrian judges on Serbian tribunals) negative. Serbia mobilized before making her reply; Austria mobilized against her as soon as it (Serbia's response-ed) was received, and on, July 28th, declared war. The Russian czar, under severe pressure from his generals, issued, retracted, modified, and reissued an order for general mobilization. Since the German military timetable for a two- front war provided that France must be defeated before Russian mobilizaton was completed, France and Germany both ordered mobilization on August 1st, and Germany declared war on Russia. As the German armies began to pour westward, Germany declared war on France (August 3rd) and Belgium (August 4th). Britain could not allow France to be defeated, and in addition was morally entangled by the military conversations of 1906-1914 and by the naval agreement of 1912. Moreover, the German challenge on the high seas, in commercial activites throughout the world, and in colonial activities in Africa could not go unanswered. On August 4th Britain declared war on Germany, emphasizing the iniquity of her attack on Belgium, although in the Cabinet meeting of July 29th it had been agreed that such an attack would not legally obligate Britain to go to war. Although this issue was spread among the people, and endless discussions ensued about Britain's obligation to defend Belgian neutrality under the Treaty of 1839, those who made the decision saw clearly that the real reason for war was that Britain could not allow Germany to defeat France."
Most historians present that explanation today because they don't realize the Masons and the Milner Group incited the war. Kaiser Wilhelm offered to halt the invasion of France, but Sir Edward Grey ignored the offer.
Kaiser Wilhelm continued:
"7. In a telegram from London my Ambassador informed me he understood the British government would guarantee neutrality of France and wished to know whether Germany would refrain from attack. I telegraphed to H.M. the King personally that mobilization being already carried out could not be stopped, but if H.M could guarantee with his armed forces the neutrality of France I would refrain from attacking her, leave her aloneand employ my troops elsewhere. H.M answered that he thought my offer was based on a misunderstanding; and, as far as I can make out, Sir E. Grey never took my offer into serious consideration. He never answered it. Instead, he declared England had to defend Belgian neutrality, which had to be violated by Germany on strategical grounds, news having been received that France was already preparing to enter Belgium, and the King of Belgians having refused my petition for a free passage under guarantee of his country's freedom. I am most grateful for the President's message." William, H.R.
Why did the King of England and Sir Edward Grey send the Kaiser conflicting messages? Why didn't Sir Edward Grey accept the Kaiser's offer to halt the invasion of France? Why didn't the King of Belgium give the German army permission to pass through his country? There is a great deal more to this story, but it will have to wait until next month.
President Obama claims the recession is over, but that isn't true. The Bush administration provided $750 billion for TARP in 2008, the Obama administration appropriated $862 billion to stimulate the economy in 2009, the Federal Reserve paid the major banks $1.7 trillion for defective CDOs in 2010, and, according to Bloomberg (in November 2008), the Federal government has, or will, spend over $8.5 trillion to stimulate the economy. What have they accomplished? The U2 unemployment rate is 9.6 %, the U6 unemployment rate is over 21% if you remove the "birth-death statistics", almost a million people will lose their homes this year, and the GDP fell from 3.5% in the first quarter of 2010 to 1.6% in the second quarter of 2010. Why didn't the massive infusion of funds resuscitate the U.S. economy? I believe the BOD is trying to destroy our nation, and shift industrial production to Asia where the GDP is increasing 8-10% a year.
What can you do? You can put on the whole armour of God, and stand against the wiles of the wicked people who control our nation because:
Did we in our own strength confide, Our striving would be losing;
Were not the right Man on our side, The Man of God's own choosing:
Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He;
Lord Sabaoth, His name, From age to age the same,
And He must win the battle.
I appreciate your loyal support and your faithful prayers.

Why is America changing? Why is the U.S. fighting in Afghanistan today? Why did Building # 7 collapse at 5:20 p.m. on September 11, 2001? Why is the Chinese economy expanding? Why is the U.S. economy contracting? Why does the U.S. give tax incentives to U.S. corporations that transfer their production overseas? Who controls the United States?
When President George W. Bush addressed the United Nations on November 10, 2001, several weeks after the 9/11 attack, he stated:
"Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September the 11th, malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from the terrorists, themselves, away from the guilty."
That is a misleading statement because the Bush administration proposed a "conspiracy theory." They claim al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, and nineteen terrorists hijacked four commercial airliners, and crashed them into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. Is that true? There are serious problems with the Bush administration's "conspiracy theory."
Michael Ruppert researched the 9/11 terrorist attack, and presented his findings in a book titled, Crossing the Rubicon. The U.S. military held fifteen exercises that morning. Five of them simulated terrorists hijacking airliners, and crashing them into buildings. Shortly after Michael's book was published, someone ransacked his office, smashed his computers, and destroyed his records. He discovered one of his best friends (and several employees) worked for the FBI. Then someone poisoned him. Michael Ruppert moved to Canada until 2010. He returned to the U.S. that year, and established the Collapse Network.
If al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden carried out the 9/11 attack, why did someone trash Michael Ruppert's office, and poison him?
Jimmy Walter was a successful businessman until he watched the Twin Towers fall, and realized the collapse was an engineered controlled demolition. During the months that followed Jimmy Walter spent $8 million on TV and newspaper ads in an effort to convince the public the hijacked planes didn't destroy the WTC buildings. What happened? Someone, or some group, harassed Jimmy Walters. They threatened to kill him if he didn't stop running his ads.
Jimmy Walter left the United States in 2006 because he feared for his life. He is living in Europe today. If al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, and a band of terrorists carried out the 9/11 attack, who harassed Jimmy Walters and threatened to kill him?
Sergeant Lauro Chavez claims he was stationed at USCENTCOM headquarters on the morning of the 9/11 attack. I interviewed Lauro in 2006, and he told me there was a "stand-down order" that morning; he also said there were several military exercises that simulated hijacked airliners crashing into buildings. Sergeant Chavez was viciously attacked on the Internet after I interviewed him. He disappeared, and I haven't been able to contact Lauro Chavez since that time.
You can obtain cassette copies of my interviews with Jimmy Walter and Lauro Chavez by calling 800-544-8927.
Who trashed Michael Ruppert's office? Who poisoned him?
Who harassed Jimmy Walter, and threatened to kill him?
What happened to Sergeant Lauro Chavez?
I believe there is an organized effort to conceal the truth about the 9/11 attack.
A similar situation existed after the First World War. The public wanted to know the cause of the terrible carnage. Some people believed J.P. Morgan (and his friends) incited the conflict because they profited from the war. Other people believed the weapon manufacturers, "The Merchants of Death," precipitated the war. Others thought the major corporations were responsible. There is an element of truth in all of the theories, but they are wrong. J.P. Morgan, the banks, the weapons manufacturers, and the corporations made a great deal of money, but that wasn't the primary cause of the Great War.
You cannot understand the origin of World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the First Gulf War, the Afghan War and the Iraq War, unless you recognize the influence of the occult movement that directs the course of world events. What is their goal? They want a world government, a world religion, and a world leader.
When Sir Edward Grey wrote his memoirs, Twenty-Five Years: 1892-1916, he realized the public wanted to know the true cause of World War I, so he stated:
"There is always a temptation to think that behind important events there is some great secret, and that a chance remark or indiscretion has revealed it. It is better to resist this temptation: to indulge it is more likely to lead us off than on the track of true conclusion."
Sir Edward Grey didn't want the public to learn the true cause of the Great War, and President Bush doesn't want the public to learn the truth about the 9/11 attack. As Yogi Berra said: "It's like deja` vu all over again."
Last month's Radio Liberty letter discussed the organizations that were responsible for the First World War: i.e. the European Grand Orient (Masonic) Lodge and the Milner Group (Cecil Rhodes' secret society). But other people were involved.
Nicholas II mobilized the Russian army on July 31, 1914. Professor Quigley described that event:
"The Russian czar, under severe pressure from his generals, issued, retracted, modified, and reissued an order for general mobilization. Since the German military timetable for a two-front war provided that France must be defeated before Russian mobilization was completed, France and Germany both ordered mobilization on August 1st, and Germany declared war on Russia. As the German armies began to pour westward, Germany declared war on France (August 3rd), and Belgium (August 4th)."
Why did Nicholas II mobilize the Russian army, and precipitate the First World War?
Serge Sazonov was the Russian Foreign Minister, and his book. Fateful Years: 1909-1916 describes his August 1, 1914, meeting with Count Pourtales, the German ambassador. Count Pourtales pleaded with Sazonov to stop the mobilization because it would lead to war. Serge Sazonov wrote:
"Count Pourtales was much agitated. He repeated his question, dwelling upon the serious consequences which our refusal to comply with the German request would involve. I gave the same answer. Pulling out of his pocket a folded sheet of paper, the Ambassador repeated his question for the third time in a voice that trembled. I said I could give no other answer. Deeply moved, the Ambassador said to me, speaking with difficulty:
'In that case my Government charges me to give you the following note.'
And with a shaking hand Pourtales handed me the Declaration of War. . . .
After handing the note to me, the Ambassador, who had evidently found it a great strain to carry out his orders, lost all self control and leaning against the window burst into tears. . . .
In spite of my own emotion, which I managed to overcome, I felt sincerely sorry for him. We embraced each other and with tottering steps he walked out of the room."
There was good reason to weep. The First World War killed 21 million people, injured 50 million, destroyed the Russian Empire, the Turkish Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the German Empire, and foreshadowed the destruction of the British Empire.
Why did Nicholas II mobilize the Russian army?
Last month's Radio Liberty letter noted the little-known fact that Lord Esher was the power behind the English throne in 1914. He was also a founding member of Cecil Rhodes' secret society, and they wanted to establish a world government. A similar situation existed in Russia. A "mad monk" named Rasputin controlled the Russian throne, and directed the fatal course of that nation. Wikipedia states:
"Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin . . . was a Russian mystic who is perceived as having influenced the latter days of the Russian Emperor Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra, and their only son, Alexei. Rasputin had often been called the "Mad Monk," while others considered him a 'strannik' (or religious pilgrim) . . . believing him to be a psychic and faith healer.
It has been argued that Rasputin helped to discredit the tsarist government, leading to the fall of the Romanov dynasty, in 1917. Contemporary opinions saw Rasputin variously as a saintly mystic, visionary, healer and prophet or, on the contrary, as a debauched religious charlatan. . . ."
www.occultopedia.com claims Rasputin was:
"A Russian mystic and prophet whose malign influence over the Russian imperial family contributed directly to the collapse of the Romanov dynasty shortly after his own death. . . .
Appearing at the imperial court in the Russian capital St. Petersburg about 1907, Rasputin soon acquired a reputation as a mystic and healer, and became a favorite of Empress Alexandra Fyodorovna and through her influenced Nicholas II. Rasputin's hold over Alexandra stemmed from his hypnotic power to alleviate the suffering of the hemophiliac crown prince, Aleksei."
When the war began, the German army attacked and the Russian army retreated, so Rasputin told the Czar he should go to the front and direct military operations. When the Czar departed, he left Alexandra in charge of the Russian government, and she asked Rasputin for advice. At that point the Russian people lost confidence in the Romanov dynasty because Rasputin was a drunkard, a womanizer, and many people believed he was a demonic charlatan.
Several members of the Russian nobility recognized what was happening, and decided to kill Rasputin.
www.occultopedia.com describes what happened:
"At the end of December 1916 Rasputin was invited to tea at the house of one of the noble conspirators and was fed cake and wine laced with cyanide. Unaffected by the poison, he was then shot several times and beaten with an iron bar. Still alive, he was dragged to the frozen River Neva, tied-up, and thrown through a hole in the ice. Within two years Tsar Nicholas and his family were dead, executed by the Bolsheviks."
That is an amazing story. Rasputin was poisoned, shot, and beaten, but he didn't die. Why didn't Rasputin die? I believe Raputin had supernatural power, and he used that power to control the Romanov dynasty. Could that explain why Nicholas II mobilized the Russian army, and precipitated World War I?
Lord Esher controlled the King of England, and Rasputin controlled Nicholas and Alexandra, but why did France and the United States enter the First World War?
Very few people understand the events that led up to the First World War because the Brotherhood of Darkness purchased the major publishing outlets, and concealed the truth. If you want to determine what happened, you must read the books that were written at that time.

Last time, we learned that Lord Esher controlled the King of England, and Rasputin controlled Nicholas and Alexandra, but why did France and the United States enter the First World War?
Very few people understand the events that led up to the First World War because the Brotherhood of Darkness purchased the major publishing outlets, and concealed the truth. If you want to determine what happened, you must read the books that were written at that time.
France had a secret agreement with Russia and Great Britain, but the French people didn't want to enter the First World War, and when the war began, they wanted to end the conflict. Why did France continue fighting?
Once again I am indebted to Dr. Dennis Cuddy for the following quotation. It comes from John Kenneth Turner's book, Shall It Be Again?. The information has been suppressed because the BOD doesn't want the American people to learn the truth. John Kenneth Turner wrote:
"In February, 1917, Representative Calloway, on the floor of Congress, charged the Morgan interests with having, in March, 1915, organized and financed a huge propaganda machine embracing twelve influential publishers and 179 selected newspapers, for the purpose of manufacturing sentiment favorable to American participation in the war. These charges were renewed in May, 1921, by Representative Michelson of Illinois. The latter called attention to the fact that, in his history of the war, Gabriel Hanotaux tells of a conference with the late Robert Bacon, then a member of the Morgan firm, in 1914, in which he and Bacon drew up plans and specifications for a great scare campaign in this country. Hanotaux also suggests that France was ready to make peace in 1914, but was dissuaded by Bacon and other American politicians, who gave assurances that they could ultimately bring America into the war on the side of France."
Why is that information important? It reveals France wanted to end the war in 1914, but J.P. Morgan's agent, Robert Bacon, told the French government the U.S. would enter the war, and defeat the Central Powers.
John Kenneth Turner continued:
"These charges are worth recording, but they are important only when taken in connection with other evidence. As a means of establishing the wish of our great financial interests for war, at least for some time before it was declared, they do not need to be proven. For, aside from the circumstantial evidence here given, any one who has read the Pujo Committee report on the Money Trust, showing the concentration of credit in the hands of three great banks, and the control of small banks by the big ones - and any one who appreciates the dependence of the more powerful organs of the press upon the dominant business interests of the communities which they serve, and especially upon the banks - will understand that the propaganda storm of the months preceding our entrance into the war would have been impossible without the approval and instigation of Wall Street. As Wall Street wanted war before it came, so, after it came, Wall Street promoted the war."
Robert Bacon worked for J.P. Morgan, and J.P. Morgan wanted to bring the United States into the war. J.P. Morgan was one of the wealthiest men in the world at that time. He didn't need additional money, so why did J.P. Morgan promote the deadly conflict?
Corinne McLaughlin has been involved in the occult movement for many years. Her book, Spiritual Politics, is an excellent source of information. Corinne McLaughlin wrote:
"Disney companies used astrology to open their Euro Disney theme park - just as they have done with their parks in California and Florida. Financier J.P. Morgan gave his astrologer credit for his billionaire status. . . ."
Corinne McLaughlin claims J.P. Morgan was involved in astrology, and astrology is founded in the occult. Is there other information that link J.P. Morgan to the occult? Yes! He was closely affiliated with the Milner Group, and most of the founding members of that organization were involved in the occult. The Milner Group established the Round Table Group, and the Round Table Group established the Royal Institute for International Affairs in the Commonwealth nations in 1919 and the Council on Foreign Relations in the United States in 1921. Professor Quigley described the structure of the conspiratorial organization.
"The leaders of this group were: Milner, . . . followed by Curtis, Robert H. (Lord) Brand . . . and . . . Adam D. Marris, . . . managing director of Lazard Brothers bank . . . . Money for the widely ramified activities of this organization came originally from the associates and followers of Cecil Rhodes, chiefly from the Rhodes Trust. . . . Since 1925 there have been substantial contributions from wealthy individuals and from foundations and firms associated with the international banking fraternity, especially the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust, and other organizations associated with J.P. Morgan, the Rockefeller and Whitney families, and the associates of Lazard Brothers and of Morgan, Grenfell, and Company.
The chief backbone of this organization grew up along the already existing financial co- operation running from the Morgan Bank in New York to a group of international financiers in London led by Lazard Brothers. Milner himself in 1901 had refused a fabulous offer, worth up to $100,000 a year, ($10 million a year today - ed) to become one of the three partners of the Morgan Bank in London. . . At the end of the war of 1914, it became clear that the organization of this system had to be greatly extended. Once again the task was entrusted to Lionel Curtis who established in England, and each dominion, a front organization to the existing local Round Table Group. This front organization, called the Royal Institute of International Affairs, had as its nucleus in each area the existing submerged Round Table Group. In New York it was known as the Council on Foreign Relations, and was a front for J.P. Morgan and Company in association with the very small American Round Table Group."
J.P. Morgan financed the Milner Group's effort to establish a world government. That has been the goal of the secret societies and the occult movement for 4200 years, and that is their goal today. Corinne McLaughlin claims J.P. Morgan attributed his wealth to his Astrologer, and that is probably true because most of the men who have accumulated great wealth have accessed the spiritual dimension. If you doubt that is true, I suggest you watch Pastor Joe Schimmel's DVD, "They Sold Their Souls for Rock and Roll." It documents the fact that most of the major entertainers of the past half-century were involved in the occult.
J.P. Morgan, and his associates, purchased the editorial policy of 25 major newspapers, and launched a program to convince the American people the U.S. should enter the First World War, but that wasn't the primary reason the U.S. entered the conflict.
Colonel Edward Mandell House controlled U.S. foreign policy, and manipulated the U.S. into the First World War. Who was Colonel House? Why did he control U.S. foreign policy? Ambassador James Gerard was Ambassador to Germany at that time, and was concerned about the power that Colonel House wielded. Ambassador Gerard wrote in his book, My First Eight-three Years in America:
"Certainly Colonel E. Mandell House occupied a unique position in the annals of American diplomacy. He, who had never been appointed to any position and who had never been passed upon by the Senate, was 'fully instructed and commissioned' to act in the most grave situation. I have never ceased to wonder how he had managed to attain such power and influence."
I began this letter with a series of questions. I will answer them in our future installments, and tell you why Colonel House was one of the most powerful men in the world.
The U.S. economy is contracting, the dollar is falling, 900,000 homes were repossessed in 2009, 528,000 homes were taken over by lenders during the first six months of 2010, 1.7 million homeowners received foreclosure-related warnings between January and June, 2010, and 7.3 million homes are in some stage of delinquency today. Why doesn't the government intervene, and protect homeowners? The Brotherhood of Darkness controls the U.S. government, and they want to impoverish the American people. What can you do? You can expose the sinister force that controls our nation because:
Back of all that foes have plotted, back of all that Saints have planned,
Back of schemes of men or demons, Moves a higher, hidden hand. . . .
Mysteries which hurt and baffle, Past our power to understand
In the end are turned to blessing By the Sovereign Hidden Hand.

(1) "Why is America changing? Why is the U.S. fighting in Afghanistan today? Why did Building 7 collapse at 5:20 p.m. on September 11, 2001? Why is the Chinese economy expanding? Why is the U.S. economy contracting? Why does the U.S. give tax incentives to U.S. corporations that transfer their production overseas? Who controls the United States?
I will answer those questions now, and discuss Colonel Edward Mandell House, 'the man of mystery' who chartered the current course of our nation, in our final installment of the “Secret Cabal” next week.
Why is America changing?
A small group of powerful men (the Brotherhood of Darkness) control the "political government of the United States." They work under the auspices of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA), the Club of Rome (CR), the Bilderbergs (BB), and the Trilateral Commission (TC) that has chapters in North America, Europe, and Asia. The North American Chapter of the TC is the pinnacle of power at the present time, but that is changing. Members control the Federal Reserve System (the U.S. Central Bank), the Central Bank of Canada, the Central Bank of Israel, the major U.S. banks, the major media outlets, the major corporations, both political parties, and most of the wealth of the world. Why did David Rockefeller organize the Trilateral Commission? Senator Barry Goldwater addressed that question in his 1979 book, "With No Apologies."
Senator Goldwater's words are reproduced in bold type. My response is printed in italics.
"In 1962 then Governor Nelson Rockefeller delivered a series of lectures at Harvard University on the future of federalism. In his presentation the governor dwelt at length on the inter- dependence of nations in the modern world, concluding with this statement: 'And so the nation-state, standing alone, threatens in many ways to seem as anachronistic as the Greek city-state eventually became in ancient times.'"
Nelson Rockefeller wanted to establish a world government. That has been the quest of the secret societies that have plagued mankind since the dawn of civilization, and that is the quest of the Brotherhood of Darkness today. The Rockefeller family, the Rothschilds, the Black Nobility, and many wealthy families, want to destroy Christianity, and establish a world government. They want a New World Order.
Senator Goldwater continued:
"Everything the governor said was true. We are dependent on other nations for raw materials and for markets. . . . Where I differ from the governor is in the suggestion implicit through- out the lectures that to achieve this new federalism, the United States must submerge its national identity and surrender substantial matters of sovereignty to a new political order.
The implications in Governor Rockefeller's presentation have become concrete proposals advanced by David Rockefeller's newest international cabal, the Trilateral Commission. Whereas the Council on Foreign Relations is distinctly national in membership, the Trilateral Commission is international. . . . It is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consoli- dation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States."
The Trilateral Commission controls the "political government of the United States" today. Between 1977 and 2008:
- Every President and/or Vice-president of the United States was a member of the Trilateral Commission (TC).
- Six of the eight presidents of the World Bank were members.
- Eight of the ten U.S. World Trade Representatives were members.
- Seven of the twelve Secretaries of State were members.
- Nine of the twelve Secretaries of Defense were members.
- Prior to Ben Bernanke, three of the four Chairmen of the FED were members.
- The North American Chapter of the Trilateral Commission (the BOD) controls "the political government of the United States" today.
Why is the U.S. fighting in Afghanistan Today?
The Brotherhood of Darkness (BOD) works through a number of "front organizations." They established the "Project for a New American Century" (PNAC) in 1997 because they want to control the Middle East. Three years later (in 2000) PNAC published a monograph titled "Rebuilding America's Defenses." The following statement appears on page 14:
"Since the collapse of the Soviet empire, this perimeter (the U.S. defense-perimeter -ed) has expanded slowly but inexorably. . . . In the Persian Gulf region, the presence of American forces, along with British and French units, has become a semipermanent fact of life. . . . Indeed, the United States has for decades sought to play a more permanent role in Gulf regional security. While the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides the immediate justifi- cation, the need for a substantial American force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein. . . ."
The BOD wanted to station U.S. troops in the Middle East so they could control the Muslim nations, but they needed an excuse to carry out that program. The PNAC document continued (page 50) :
"A transformation strategy that solely pursued capabilities for projecting force from the United States . . . and sacrificed forward basing and presence, would be at odds with larger American policy goals and would trouble American allies.
Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor."
The U.S. (the BOD) controlled most of the world at that time. They had 720 foreign military bases, and troops stationed in 130 nations, but the Muslim nation didn't want to relinquish their sovereignty. What did the BOD do? They engineered the false flag attack that took place on September 11, 2001, and used that incident to justify the U.S. attack on Afghanistan.
Why did Building 7 collapse at 5:20 p.m. on September 11, 2001?
Building 7 was destroyed by controlled demolition. You can watch Building 7 collapse at my Web site -www.radioliberty.com - at "Videos Around the Web" - at the bottom of the page. What will you see? You will see the center of the roof collapse when the technicians destroy the beams that support the center of the building so the walls fall inward. Then the base of Building 7 disintegrates, and the structure falls symetrically, straight down, at the speed of gravity. 1,373 architects and engineers have signed a petition that calls for an independent investigation of the destruction of Building 7.
Why is the Chinese economy expanding?
The BOD is implementing Principle 10a of the Earth Charter; it calls to:
"Promote the equitable distribution of wealth within nations and among nations."
The BOD is transferring U.S. manufacturing to China, and other nations, because the BOD wants to raise the standard of living in other nations, and lower the standard of living in the United States. They:
(1) Removed U.S. tariffs. American manufacturers can't compete with foreign companies that employ "slave labor."
(2) Encouraged the World Bank, the Asian Development Fund, the IMF, American banks, and European banks to fund construction of factories in other nations.
(3) Provided tax incentives to companies that produce products in China.
(4) Let foreign nations manipulate the value of their currency.
(5) Let foreign nations discriminate against American products.
Why is the U.S. economy contracting?
(1) The BOD rewards companies that shift their headquarters and manufacturing overseas; i.e., no U.S. corporate tax.
(2) BOD corporations outsource their jobs; i.e., answering services in India.
(3) If a CEO shifts production overseas, they receive a higher salary.
(4) BOD banks limited lending, and contracted the money supply (M3).
Why does the U.S. give tax incentives to U.S. corporations that transfer their production overseas?
The U.S. gives tax incentives to corporations that shift their production overseas, and employ H-1B workers, because the BOD wants to lower the standard of living in the United States. David Rockefeller justified the program when he wrote:
"Populists and isolationists ignore the tangible benefits that have resulted from our active international role during the past half-century . . . there have been fundamental improve- ments in societies around the world . . . as a result of global trade, improved communi- cations and the heightened interaction of people from different cultures. Populists rarely mention these positive consequences, nor can they cogently explain how they would have sustained American economic growth and the expansion of our political power with- out them."
David Rockefeller is correct. There have been "fundamental improvements in societies around the world," but the BOD program destroyed the industrial base of our nation.
Who controls the United States?
The BOD controls the United States, and they are destroying the moral and financial structure of our nation.
Who was Colonel House, and why is he important today?
Colonel Edward Mandell House never held public office, but he was the most important political figure of the twentieth century. Colonel House controlled the Wilson administration, prolonged World War I, brought the U.S. into the Great War, helped write the Treaty of Versailles that led to World War II, aided the Bolsheviks, helped J.P. Morgan organize the Council on Foreign Relations, and was a close personal friend of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
How did Colonel House control President Wilson and his administration? The amazing answer, next time.

Last time, we answered several questions which relate to the current status of the United States. One last question remains.
Who was Colonel House, and why is he important today?
Colonel Edward Mandell House never held public office, but he was the most important political figure of the twentieth century. Colonel House controlled the Wilson administration, prolonged World War I, brought the U.S. into the Great War, helped write the Treaty of Versailles that led to World War II, aided the Bolsheviks, helped J.P. Morgan organize the Council on Foreign Relations, and was a close personal friend of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
How did Colonel House control President Wilson and his administration? Arthur Howden Smith knew Colonel House, and wrote:
"Colonel House would come into an office and say a few words quietly, and after he had gone you would suddenly become seized by a good idea. You would suggest that idea to your friends or superiors and be congratulated for it; it would work first rate, beyond your wildest dreams. You might forget about it. But some time, as sure as shooting, in cogitating profoundly over it, you would come to an abrupt realization that that idea had been oozed into your brain by Colonel House in the course of conversation."
How did Colonel House "ooze" his ideas into other men's minds? Ambassador Gerard was the American Ambassador to Germany from 1913-1917. Ambassador Gerard knew Colonel House, but didn't understand the source of his mysterious ability.
Ambassador Gerard described a tragic event that took place at that time:
"In the early months of 1915 it became apparent that the German blitzkrieg had lost its initial force. The push for Paris and the German sweep to a quick victory had failed. . . . The Germans . . . knew that the quickest way to the ear of Washington was through me, and in due course it was intimated to me that Germany was ready to make peace. . . . I felt justified, on February 11, 1915, (seven months after the war began - ed) in sending President Wilson the following cable in code.
It is my conviction that if a reasonable peace proposition were offered Germany very many men of influence would be inclined to use their efforts to induce Germany to accept the proposition. If peace does not come immediately a new and protracted phase of the war will commence. It will be fatal to hesitate or wait a moment; success is dependent on immediate action. It is my belief that if you seize the present opportunity you will be the instrument of bringing about the greatest peace which has ever been signed, but it will be fatal to hesitate or wait a moment."
Germany wanted to end the war, but Colonel House had a different agenda.
Ambassador Gerard continued:
"The response to this cable was an instruction from President Wilson to refer everything to Colonel House, who, the communication specified, had been 'fully instructed and commissioned to act in all these matters'. . . All authority, therefore, had been vested in Colonel House, and as I was directed to report to Colonel House direct, the President ceased to be even a conduit of communications. . . .
Certainly Colonel E. Mandell House occupied a unique position in the annals of American diplomacy. He, who had never been appointed to any position and who had never be passed upon by the Senate, was 'fully instructed and commissioned' to act in the most grave situation. I have never ceased to wonder how he managed to attain such power and influence."
How did Colonel House attain his "power and influence"? The August Radio Liberty letter described the occult background of the organizations that were primarily responsible for World War I; i.e., the Grand Orient Masonic Lodge, and Cecil Rhodes' secret society. Sir Edward Grey precipitated the conflict. If you read Sir Edward's autobiography, you will discover he was closely affiliated with the Milner Group that was involved in the occult, and Colonel Edward Mandell House was a close friend.
The September Radio Liberty letter discussed Rasputin, the Russian mystic who controlled the Romanov family, and the part J.P. Morgan played in inciting the war. J.P. Morgan was involved in astrology.
How did Colonel House control President Wilson and his administration? Corinne McLaughlin and her husband, Gordon Davidson, answered that question in their book, "Spiritual Politics." They wote:
"Colonel Edward Mandell House, a close aide of President Wilson - who was called a 'man of mystery' -was guided inwardly to bring the idea of a League of Nations to the world. Colonel House was a quiet, self-effacing adviser with tremendous dedication, practical intelligence, and skill. 'By his idealism he touched those belonging to the Inner Government of the world, and by his mastery of practical politics he was able to influence those who governed the outer,' noted metaphysician Theodore Heline. Colonel House was also called by some, 'the Hidden Master of the New Deal.'"
I believe Colonel House was involved in occult practices, and I believe he used occult power to touch "those belonging to the Inner Government of the world." Dr. Dennis Cuddy researched the events that took place during that era, and wrote:
"In Changing Esoteric Values by Foster Bailey, on page 58, Colonel House is referred to as a 'disciple,' and President Wilson is referred to as a 'sixth ray disciple.' Foster's wife, Alice Bailey (the leading occultist of the day), referred to FDR as 'that great first ray disciple' in The Externalisation of the Hierarchy, in which she wrote of those who 'will develop the new world religion . . . [and] the new civilization. . . . They can, however, be delayed by the reactionary types of people, by the ultra-conservative and closed minds. . . . These must all be brought under the power of death.'"
Why did Colonel House prolong World War I, and kill millions of innocent people? Colonel House answered that question in an article published in Foreign Affairs magazine in June 1923. Foreign Affairs is the official journal of the Council on Foreign Relations:
"If war had not come in 1914 in fierce and exaggerated form, the idea of an association of nations would probably have remained dormant, for great reforms seldom materialize except during great upheavals. . . . If law and order are good within states (nations), there can be no reason why they should not be good between states (nations)."
Colonel House prolonged World War I because he wanted world government. I believe Colonel House, President Wilson, and President Roosevelt were knowingly, or unknowingly, involved in the occult movement, and I believe the men who lead the BOD are knowingly or unknowingly involved in the occult movement today.
The world is changing. The U.S. economy is contracting. U2 unemployment is 9.6%, U6 unemployment is over 16%, and if you remove "the birth-death ratio," U6 unemployment is over 22%. One-and-a-half million families have lost their homes since January 2009, four million homes are in some stage of foreclosure, the price of food and household necessities is increasing, and the FED is funding the major (BOD) banks that created the problem.
Most people realize something is seriously wrong, but they don't understand the spiritual component of the battle. The Republican sweep of the House of Representatives reflects the growing awareness of the American people. We must stay the course, and expose the "dark force" that controls our nation because:
Then to side with truth is noble, When we share her wretched crust,
Ere her cause bring fame and profit. And 'tis prosperous to be just,
Then it is the brave man chooses, While the coward stands aside,
Till the multitude make virtue, Of the faith they have denied. . . .
Though the cause of evil prosper, Yet 'tis truth alone is strong;
Though her portion be the scaffold, And upon the throne be wrong.
Yet that scaffold sways the future, And, behind the dim unknown,
Standeth God within the shadow, Keeping watch above his own.
Barbara and I appreciate your faithful prayers and your loyal support:

"The dirty little secret is that both houses of Congress have become irrelevant. . . America's domestic policy is now being run by Alan Greenspan and the Federal Reserve Board. . . Congress is out of the loop." Robert Reich, Former Secretary of Labor, Rhodes Scholar, CFR.
USA Today, January 7,1999
"Everything predicted by the enemies of banks, in the beginning, is now coming to pass. We are to be ruined now by a deluge of bank paper, as we were formerly by the old Continental paper. . . . I am an enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but coin. But our whole country is so fascinated by this Jack o' lantern wealth, that they will not stop short of its total and fatal explosion."
Thomas Jefferson, 1815 : Master Thoughts of Thomas Jefferson, page 169
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around (the banks) will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
Attributed to Thomas Jefferson
"The U.S. government is incurring debt at a historically unprecedented and ultimately unsustainable rate. . . . The result will be an age of American austerity. No category of federal spending will be spared . . . . There will be profound consequences, not just for Americans' standard of living but also for U.S. foreign policy and the coming era of international relations."
Richard Haas, President of the Council on Foreign Relations, Foreign Affairs magazine, November/December 2010
"In the United States, gloom has spread to our policymakers on how to deal with our economic dilemmas. Monetary policy is relatively ineffective because we are in, or near, liquidity trap conditions. Our economy is so weak that lower interest rates and other monetary tools are not working."
Mortimer Zuckerman, Editor, U.S. News & World Report. Member: Trilateral Commission and CFR
Why is America changing? When will the economy recover? What lies ahead? If you want to know what lies ahead, you must study the events that took place during, and after, the French Revolution because:
(1) The French Revolution was a watershed event.
(2) Three secret societies (the Freemasons, the Jacobins, & the Illuminati) incited the French Revolution.
(3) The secret societies wanted to destroy the existing social order, and Christianity.
(4) The secret societies precipitated the violent revolutions and bloody wars that took place during the nineteenth century.
(5) Similar organizations exist today.
(6) The true history of the French Revolution has been suppressed.
How can you can learn what happened? Radio Liberty carries two excellent books: Nesta Webster's The French Revolution, and James H. Billington's, Fire In The Minds of Men.
James H. Billington, the current Librarian of Congress, wrote:
"The revolutionary faith was shaped not so much by the critical rationalism of the French enlightenment (as is generally believed) as by the occultism and proto-romanticism of Germany. This faith was incubated in France during the revolutionary era within a small sub-culture of literary intellectuals who were immersed in journalism, fascinated by secret societies, and subsequently infatuated with 'ideologies' as a secular surrogate for religious belief. . . .
The flame of faith had begun its migrations a century earlier, when some European aristocrats transferred their lighted candles from Christian altars to Masonic lodges. The flame of occult alchemists which had promised to turn dross into gold, reappeared at the center of new 'circles' seeking to recreate a golden age. Bavarian Illuminists conspiring against the Jesuits, French Philadelphians against Napoleon, Italian charcoal burners against the Hapsburgs."
Charles Dickens' novel, A Tale of Two Cities, describes the confusion that existed during, and after, the French Revolution. The book begins with this statement:
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us. . . ."
A similar situation exists today. We live in a wonderful country - but 40,000 factories have closed since 1998, 20-25 million Americans are unemployed or underemployed, the moral fabric of our nation is crumbling, Federal power is increasing, and we are losing our freedom. Why is that happening? I believe there is an intentional effort to confuse the American people.
The following article appeared in my local newspaper on December 2, 2010. The headline proclaimed:
"Economy looks to close out 2010 with a bang."
The article stated:
"WASHINGTON - The economy is showing new life in the final months of the year.
Factories are busier, construction spending is up, and auto sales are rising. And on Wednesday the stock market had its best day since September after a report that the private sector hired the most workers in three years. . . .
'The economy is starting to show better overall momentum,' said Brian Bethune, an economist at IHS Global Insight. 'There's a steady improvement in the overall tone.'"
Is that true? Is the economy improving? No! Most of the clothing, furniture, cell phones, iPods, TV sets, recorders, and DVD players sold in the U.S. are manufactured overseas because the Ruling Elite (the Brotherhood of Darkness - BOD) has transferred our steel industry, electronic industry, textile industry, aluminum industry, light bulb industry, and a large part of the U.S. automotive industry, to other nations.
How did that happen? The Globalists devised a program to confuse the American people. I have listed several examples:
The BOD-controlled media claims:
We live in a global economy. Free trade creates jobs and benefits American workers.
Free Trade promotes exports, and creates jobs. If the U.S. imposes tariffs, employment will decline.
But, American industry can't survive without tariffs.
The outlook for the American automotive industry is improving. The U.S. will produce 12 million cars this year (2010), two million more than last year (2009).
But, the U.S. produced 16-18 million cars in 2008. Automobile production has declined.
The business climate is improving, the business climate is contracting.
Credit is readily available, credit is hard to get.
The economy is expanding, the economy is contracting.
Exports are increasing, exports are decreasing.
The job market is improving, the job market is contracting.
As of December 6, 2010:
U2 unemployment was 9.8%.
U6 unemployment was over 16%.
If you exclude the "birth-death ratio," U6 employment is over 22%.
The dollar is getting stronger, the dollar is getting weaker.
The European monetary crisis is over, the European monetary system is on the verge of collapse.
The price of gold is rising, the price of gold will collapse.
The housing market is improving, the housing market is collapsing.
Two million families have lost their homes.
Four-and-a-quarter million homes are in some stage of foreclosure.
There was a conscious effort to confuse the French people during the French Revolution, and there is a conscious effort to confuse the American people today.
The progeny of the secret societies that incited the French Revolution exert their influence through secret cabals today.
Senator Barry Goldwater warned the American people about the danger in 1979 when he wrote:
"The implications in Governor Rockefeller's presentation have become concrete proposals advanced by David Rockefeller's newest international cabal, the Trilateral Commission."
(Italics added )
Do all of the members of the secret cabals (the Bilderbergs, the Club of Rome, the CFR, the RIIA, the Freemasons, the Rosacrucians, the Trilateral Commission, etc. . .) understand the true purpose of the organizations? No! Many people join secretive groups because they want to make business contacts and meet important people, but the leaders of the organizations understand the real objective. The covert groups want to end national sovereignty, and unite the world under their control.
How did the BOD gain control of the U.S. State Department, and implement the Free Trade program that is destroying the American economy? The major banks (Rockefeller and Morgan banks) established the Federal Reserve System, the FED (a Central bank) created the money that was used to purchase the media, the major corporations, and cooperative politicians who let the BOD control the U.S. State Department.
If you access Augustreview.com you will discover most of the key positions in the Obama State Department are held by members of the Trilateral Commission. Other positions are held by members of the CFR.
We shall soon reach the conclusion of this narrative regarding the “Secret Cabal.”

Last time, we were discussing how the BOD gained control of the U.S. State Department, and implemented the Free Trade program that is destroying the American economy. The major banks (Rockefeller and Morgan banks) established the Federal Reserve System, the FED (a Central bank) created the money that was used to purchase the media, the major corporations, and cooperative politicians who let the BOD control the U.S. State Department.
If you access you will discover most of the key positions in the Obama State Department are held by members of the Trilateral Commission. Other positions are held by members of the CFR.
If you want to oppose the centralization of power that exists today, you must recognize the fact that the major (BOD) corporations control over half of the corporate wealth of our nation. When Senator William Borah addressed the Union League Club in Baltimore, Maryland, on February 12, 1913, he stated:
"If one-quarter of 1 percent of all the corporations in the United States, as they have and do, control one-half of all corporate wealth and fix prices on many of the most essential things in our daily living, then, as to the most vital things in life, the means and standard of living, concentration of economic power is already established, and, if continued, concentration of governmental power to meet the situation will inevitably follow."
Did one-quarter of 1 percent of the U.S. corporations control half the corporate wealth of the U.S. in 1913? Professor Carroll Quigley researched that subject, and wrote; (in 1966):
"In the United States the number of billion-dollar corporations rose from one in 1909 (United States Steel, controlled by Morgan) to fifteen in 1930. The share of all corporation assets held by the 200 largest corporations rose from 32 percent in 1909 to 49 percent in 1930 and reached 57 percent in 1939. By 1930 the 200 largest corporations held 49.2 percent of the assets of all 40,000 corporations in the country ($81 billion out of $165 billion); they held 38 percent of all business wealth, incorporated or unincorporated (or $81 billion out of $212 billion); and they held 22 percent of all the wealth in the country. . . . In fact, in 1930, one corporation (American Telephone and Telegraph, controlled by Morgan) had greater assets than the total wealth in twenty-one states of the Union.
The influence of these business leaders was so great that the Morgan and Rockefeller groups acting together, or even Morgan acting alone, could have wrecked the economic system of the country merely by throwing securities on the stock market for sale, and, having precip- itated a stock-market panic, could then have bought back the securities they had sold but at a lower price."
Professor Quigley found one-half of 1 percent of the U.S. corporations (200 of 40,000) controlled 57% of the corporate wealth of the United States in 1939, and the concentration of wealth has increased since that time. A recent article at www.mybudget360.com claims 1% of the U.S. population controls 42% of the wealth of our nation.
What does that have to do with the secret cabals that control the U.S. State Department and the U.S. government? If you examine the membership rolls of the CFR and the Trilateral Commission, you will discover almost all the CEO's of the major banks and corporations are members of one, or both, organizations.
Is there any connection between the secret societies that precipitated the wars and revolutions of the nineteenth century, and the subversive organizations (the BOD) that controls the U.S. today? Yes! Both groups were (are) motivated by the occult desire to unite the world.
Professor Carroll Quigley researched Cecil Rhodes' secret society, and discovered Rhodes' desire for world government was motivated by a lecture he attended at Oxford University in 1871. Professor Ruskin told his students they had a moral obligation to raise the standard of living throughout the world, and Cecil Rhodes embraced that challenge. . . . Why is that important? John Ruskin was a member of the Society of Psychical Research, and deeply involved in the occult.
How did Cecil Rhodes finance his covert organization? Lord Rothschild provided the funds Cecil Rhodes utilized to purchase the major diamond mines and gold mines of South Africa, and he used the income from De Beers and Consolidated Gold Field to fund his secret society. Lord Rothschild was a founding member of Cecil Rhodes' secret society, but Lord Rothschild resigned, and his son-in-law, Lord Roseberry, took his place.
Cecil Rhodes' secret society worked through front organizations. The Milner Group established the Round Table Group, and the Round Table created the Council on Foreign Relations in 1921 . . . with the help of J.P. Morgan who was closely aligned with the Rothschild family. Fifty-two years later the Chairman of the CFR (David Rockefeller) organized the Trilateral Commission, and the Trilateral Commission and the CFR control the U.S. government today.
Are the Rockefellers involved in the subversive effort to establish a world government? Yes! David Rockefeller became a member of the CFR's Board of Directors in 1949. He was Vice Chairman 1955-1970, he was Chairman from 1970-1985, and he is the Honorary Chairman of both the CFR and the North American Chapter of the Trilateral Commission today (2010). He is also a permanent member of the covert Bilderberg organization.
How does the BOD control the FED? There are six major banks in the U.S. at the present time, and they control most of the stock of the Federal Reserve System. The Rockefeller family has large blocks of stock in two of the major banks: J.P. Morgan Chase and Citigroup. The Rothschild family has a controlling interest in two major banks and significant holdings in the other major banks through the Barclay Bank and the State Street Bank. Why is that important? Two families control the major banks, the major banks control the FED, and the FED controls the U.S. economy.
Robert Reich understands the current power structure of the U.S. because he was a Rhodes Scholar. He is a member of the CFR, and he was Secretary of Labor during the Clinton Administration. Robert Reich's January 7, 1999, article in USA Today states:
"The dirty little secret is that both houses of Congress have become irrelevant . . . in case you hadn't noticed, America's domestic policy is now being run by Alan Greenspan and the Federal Reserve Board. . . Congress is out of the loop. Every so often, some senators or house members politely ask Greenspan to visit and talk about the economy . . . Then he goes back down to the Fed and runs the country. . . . America's foreign policy is being run by the IMF (Int'l Monetary Fund) . . . and when the president decides to go to war, he no longer needs a declaration of war from Congress."
I believe Robert Reich is correct. The FED is a privately owned central bank. They set the interest rate, they regulate the money supply, they control the U.S. economy, and they precipitated the current economic turmoil. How does the BOD control the federal government? They fund "cooperative politicians," and reward them when they retire.
A recent article at www.mybudget360.com claims 1% of the U.S. population controls 42% of the wealth. Is that true? Yes! The BOD, the banks, the CEOs of BOD corporations, and "the political class" control the U.S., and promote world government.
Thomas Jefferson foresaw the current situation when he wrote: (in 1815) :
"Everything predicted by the enemies of banks, in the beginning, is now coming to pass. We are to be ruined now by a deluge of bank paper, as we were formerly by the old Continental paper. It is cruel that such revolutions in private fortunes should be at the mercy of avaricious adventurers, who instead of employing their capital, if any they have, in manufactures, commerce, and other useful pursuits, make it an instrument to burden all the interchanges of property with their swindling profits, profits which are the price of no useful industry of theirs. Prudent men must be on their guard in this game of Robin's alive, and take care that the spark does not extinguish in their hands. I am an enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but coin. But our whole country is so fascinated by this Jack o' lantern wealth, that they will not stop short of its total and fatal explosion."
Four years later, in 1819, the banks curtailed lending, called their loans, and seized the property of people who couldn't immediately repay their loans. The process has been repeated many times since 1819, and it is being implemented today.
The following statement is often attributed to Thomas Jefferson, but I'm not certain he said it. On the other hand, the concept is accurate, and we must heed the prophetic warning:
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around (the banks), will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up home- less on the continent their fathers conquered. . . ."
Why is America changing? When will the economy recover? What lies ahead?
Richard Haas knows what lies ahead because he is the president of the CFR, and close to the men who rule our nation. His recent article in Foreign Affairs magazine (November/December 2010) states:
"The U.S. government is incurring debt at a historically unprecedented and ultimately unsustainable rate. . . . The result will be an age of American austerity. No category of federal spending will be spared . . . . There will be profound consequences, not just for Americans' standard of living but also for U.S. foreign policy . . . . Washington's ability to lead on global economic matters . . . will be compromised by the coming plunge into austerity."
Mortimer Zuckerman knows what lies ahead because he is a member of the CFR and the Trilateral Commission. Mortimer Zuckerman wrote in U.S. News and World Report, December 2010,
"In the United States, gloom has spread to our policymakers on how to deal with our economic dilemmas. Monetary policy is relatively ineffective because we are in, or near, liquidity trap conditions. Our economy is so weak that lower interest rates and other monetary tools are not working."
What lies ahead? The BOD is going to cut federal spending, increase taxes, destroy the American economy, devalue the dollar, and impoverish the American people. Difficult times lie ahead.
"A global elite has emerged over the past several decades that has vastly more power than any other group on the planet. Each of the members of this superclass has the ability to regularly influence the lives of millions of people in multiple countries worldwide." -David Rothkopf, Superclass
Is there a secret cabal? Does it control the United States? When Ronald Reagan ran for president in 1980, he criticized President Carter because 28 (of the 85) members of the North American Chapter of the Trilateral Commission held key positions in the Carter administration. In actuality, 291 TC and CFR members held positions in the Carter administration.
How did Ronald Reagan counter the TC and CFR influence? Ronald Reagan's campaign manager, William Casey, was a member of the Trilateral Commission, five key members of Reagan's campaign committee were TC members (David Packard, George Weyerhaeuser, Bill Brock, Anne Armstrong, Phillip Hawley, William Hewitt, Caspar Weinberger). Ronald Reagan selected George H.W. Bush (a member of the TC, CFR, and BB) to be vice-president. The Reagan transition team contained 28 CFR members, 10 TC members, and 10 Bilderberg members. Ronald Reagan's administration contained 287 members of the CFR and the Trilateral Commission, and David Rockefeller noted Ronald Reagan "came to understand Trilateral's value and invited the entire membership to a reception at the White House in April 1984."
The CFR and the TC control every administration. At the present time the following TC members are on leave because they are members of the Obama administration: Stephen Bosworth, Lael Brainard, Kurt Campbell, Thomas Donilon, Diana Farrell, Michal B.G. Froman, Timothy Geithner, Richard Holbrooke (recently deceased), Steven Koonin, Susan Rice, Dennis Ross, Anne-Marie Slaughter, James B. Steinberg, Lawrence Summers (recently resigned), and Robert Zoellick, president of the World Bank. Why is that important? There are 85 current members of the North American Chapter of the Trilateral Commission, and 15 of them hold key positions in the Obama administration. What is their goal? They want to destroy national sovereignty, and unite the world.
The remainder of this letter contains the 2010 membership list of the Trilateral Commission, but there are also covert members. The 2008 list included Stanley Fisher, Chairman of the Central Bank of Israel, the Chairman of the Bank of Canada, the CEO of Goldman-Sachs, the CEO of Citigroup, and several other people responsible for the current economic collapse.
Can the problem be corrected? Certainly! If the U.S. imposed tariffs, closed the FED, and the banks lent money, the economy would recover in one or two years.
What can you do? You can inform your friends, and,
"Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand."
Barbara and I appreciate your faithful prayers, and your loyal support.
Yours in Christ,
Stanley Monteith
