The Council on Foreign Relations
and the New World Order

By Charles Overbeck (PSCPirhana) - Matrix Editor
The Council on Foreign Relations, housed in the Harold Pratt House on East
68th Street in New York City, was founded in 1921. In 1922, it began
publishing a journal called Foreign Affairs. According to Foreign Affairs'
web page (, the CFR was founded when
"...several of the American participants in the Paris Peace Conference
decided that it was time for more private American Citizens to become
familiar with the increasing international responsibilities and obligations
of the United States."

The first question that comes to mind is, who gave these people the authority
to decide the responsibilities and obligations of the United States, if that
power was not granted to them by the Constitution. Furthermore, the CFR's web
page doesn't publicize the fact that it was originally conceived as part of a
much larger network of power.

According to the CFR's Handbook of 1936, several leading members of the
delegations to the Paris Peace Conference met at the Hotel Majestic in Paris
on May 30, 1919, "to discuss setting up an international group which would
advise their respective governments on international affairs."

The Handbook goes on to say, "At a meeting on June 5, 1919, the planners
decided it would be best to have separate organizations cooperating with each
other. Consequently, they organized the Council on Foreign Relations, with
headquarters in New York, and a sister organization, the Royal Institute of
International Affairs, in London, also known as the Chatham House Study
Group, to advise the British Government. A subsidiary organization, the
Institute of Pacific Relations, was set up to deal exclusively with Far
Eastern Affairs. Other organizations were set up in Paris and Hamburg..."

The 3,000 seats of the CFR quickly filled with members of America's elite.
Today, CFR members occupy key positions in government, the mass media,
financial institutions, multinational corporations, the military, and the
national security apparatus.

Since its inception, the CFR has served as an intermediary between high
finance, big oil, corporate elitists and the U.S. government. The executive
branch changes hands between Republican and Democratic administrations, but
cabinet seats are always held by CFR members. It has been said by political
commentators on the left and on the right that if you want to know what U.S.
foreign policy will be next year, you should read Foreign Affairs this year.

The CFR's claim that "The Council has no affiliation with the U.S.
government" is laughable. The justification for that statement is that
funding comes from member dues, subscriptions to its Corporate Program,
foundation grants, and so forth. All this really means is that the U.S.
government does not exert any control over the CFR via the purse strings.

In reality, CFR members are very tightly affiliated with the U.S. government.
Since 1940, every U.S. secretary of state (except for Gov. James Byrnes of
South Carolina, the sole exception) has been a member of the Council on
Foreign Relations and/or its younger brother, the Trilateral Commission. Also
since 1940, every secretary of war and every secretary of defense has been a
CFR member. During most of its existence, the Central Intelligence Agency has
been headed by CFR members, beginning with CFR founding member Allen Dulles.
Virtually every key U.S. national security and foreign policy adviser has
been a CFR member for the past seventy years.

Almost all White House cabinet positions are occupied by CFR members.
President Clinton, himself a member of the CFR, the Trilateral Commission and
the Bilderberg Group, employs almost one hundred CFR members in his
administration. Presidents come and go, but the CFR's power--and
agenda--always remains.

Closed Circuit--the shroud of secrecy around the CFR.

On its web page, the CFR boasts that its magazine, Foreign Affairs, "is
acclaimed for its analysis of recent international developments and for its
forecasts of emerging trends." It's not much of a challenge to do so, though,
when you play a part in determining what those emerging trends will be.

This point is underscored a paragraph later on their web page: "Perhaps best
known for the history-making "X" article by George Kennan, that defined Cold
War containment policy, a recent Foreign Affairs article by Harvard's Samuel
Huntington, "The Clash of Civilizations?" has already helped define the
post-Cold War debate."

So are they predicting trends or creating them? The answer is fairly obvious
to anyone who has earnestly reflected on the matter.

The CFR fancies itself to represent a diverse range cultural and political
interests, but its members are predominantly wealthy males, and their
policies reflect their elitist biases.

The CFR attempts to maintain the charade of diversity via its Non-Attribution
Rule, which allows members to engage in "a free, frank, and open exchange of
ideas" without fear of having any of their statements attributed in public.
The flip side of this, obviously, is a dark cloud of secrecy which envelopes
the CFR's activities.

CFR meetings are usually held in secret and are restricted to members and
very select guests. All members are free to express themselves at meetings
unrestrained, because the Non-Attribution Rule guarantees that "others will
not attribute or characterize their statements in public media forums or
knowingly transmit them to persons who will," according to the Council on
Foreign Relations' 1992 Annual Report.

The report goes on to forbid any meeting participant "to publish a speaker's
statement in attributed form in any newspaper; to repeat it on television or
radio, or on a speaker's platform, or in a classroom; or to go beyond a memo
of limited circulation."

The end result is that the only information the public has on the CFR is the
information they release for public consumption, which should send up red
flags for anyone who understands the immense effect that CFR directives have
on America's foreign policy. The public knows what the CFR wants the public
to know about the CFR, and nothing more.

There is one hole in the fog of secrecy, however: a book entitled Tragedy and
Hope, written by an "insider" named Dr. Carroll Quigley, mentor of Bill

Tragedy and Hope--a glimpse behind the scenes of global management.

Dr. Quigley knew a lot about the behind-the-scenes work of global power
because he was a part of that power network for most of his life. In his
book, Tragedy and Hope, Quigley states:

"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 aversions 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. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its
policies ... but 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."

The "Hope" in the title of Quigley's book represents the thousand-year reign
of a collectivist one-world society which will be created when the "network"
achieves its goal of world government. Quigley believed that the "network" is
so powerful at this point that resistance by the common people is futile.
Hence, those who resist the schemes of the globalist planners represent the
"Tragedy." By Dr. Quigley's logic, there is no point in struggling against
the noose around our necks, because resistance will merely guarantee

Dr. Quigley identified the "network" as the "international bankers," men who
were "different from ordinary bankers in distinctive ways: they were
cosmopolitan and international; they were close to governments and were
particularly concerned with questions of government debts...; they were
almost exclusively devoted to secrecy and the secret use of financial
influence in political life. These bankers came to be called international
bankers, and, more particularly, were known as merchant bankers in England,
private bankers in France, and investment bankers in the United States."

The core of control, according to Dr. Quigley, resides in the financial
dynasties of Europe and America who exercise political control through
international financial combines. The primary tactic of control is lending
money at high interest to governments and monarchs during times of crisis. An
example of this is the current national debt in the U.S., which is at five
trillion dollars right now. Every penny of it is owed to the Federal Reserve,
a corporation comprised of thirteen private banks.

According to Dr. Quigley, the Council on Foreign Relations is one of several
front organizations set up by the network's inner circle to advance its
schemes. The ultimate goal: a New World Order.

The Council on Foreign Relations and the New World Order

According to State Department Publication 2349, submitted by secretary of
State and CFR member Edward Stettinius, a committee on "post-war problems"
was set up before the end of 1939 at the suggestion of the CFR. In other
words, two years before the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, the CFR was
planning how to order the world after the war ended.

In 1946, the Rockefeller Foundation spent almost $140,000 to produce a
history of how the United States entered World War II. This history was
intended to counter "revisionist" historians who argued that the U.S. was
"tricked" into the war by the Roosevelt Administration. The Rockefeller
family has always taken a lead role in the CFR.

In the 1960s, while American men and women were dying in the jungles of
Vietnam and while the military/industrial complex was sucking trillions of
dollars out of American taxpayers' wallets, the Rockefeller dynasty was
financing Vietnamese oil refineries and aluminum plants. If there had ever
been a formal declaration of war, the Rockefellers could be tried for
treason. Instead, they reaped dividends.

These are just a few of the abuses of power which demonstrate the results of
the power elite's manipulations of our destiny as a society. If you've ever
wondered why you don't hear about this network of power, just take a look at
the CFR's membership roster (posted online in ParaScope). Many of the chief
executives and newspeople at CBS, NBC/RCA, ABC, the Public Broadcast Service,
the Associated Press, the New York Times, Time magazine, Newsweek, the
Washington Post, and many other key media outlets are CFR members.

Even if these members of the media's elite had the inclination to report on
what they saw and heard at CFR meetings, they are prevented from doing so by
the Non-Attribution Rule. To put this in perspective: many of the people who
are trusted to provide information about national and world politics are
deliberately withholding crucial information from the public because of
membership in a secretive globalist organization.

This organization has taken it upon itself to participate in the
manufacturing of a new vision for humanity, and dissidence will not be
tolerated. If you believe the words of Carroll Quigley, all resistance is
futile and doomed to failure. If you believe the rhetoric of
internationalists in our own government, the current "trend towards
isolationism" will result in a loss of American hegemony in the New World
Order, leaving the United States a wrecked Third World wasteland.

World government can come in time, piece by piece, arrived at through the
full participation and consensus of the human beings who will be affected by
the negotiations. But the idea of the world's elite determining what path
that the common herd should follow is repulsive to the human spirit. The
story of the CFR goes far deeper than this brief report, and is interlocked
with several other international power groups.

International power orgs depend on the masses remaining ignorant for their
plans to come to fruition. It's up to you to do your own research and draw
your own conclusion. But remember: there's a hell of a lot more to the story
than Dan Rather will ever tell you. Educate yourself, or remain a passive
consumer. The choice is entirely yours.
