International Banking and the Capitalist Conspiracy - sumishi - 07-14-2010

Here's an interesting exchange published in the British Humor magazine, PUNCH, in April 3, 1957:





Q. What are banks for?

A. To make money.



Q. For the customers?

A. For the banks.



Q. Why doesn't bank advertising mention this?

A. It would not be in good taste. But it is mentioned by implication in references to reserves of $249,000,000 or thereabouts. That is the money that they have made.



Q. Out of the customers?

A. I suppose so.



Q. They also mention Assets of $500,000,000 or thereabouts. Have they made that too?

A. Not exactly. That is the money they use to make money.



Q. I see. And they keep it in a safe somewhere?

A. Not at all. They lend it to customers.



Q. Then they haven't got it?

A. No.



Q. Then how is it Assets?

A. They maintain that it would be if they got it back.



Q. But they must have some money in a safe somewhere?

A. Yes, usually $500,000,000 or thereabouts. This is called Liabilities.



Q. But if they've got it, how can they be liable for it?

A. Because it isn't theirs.



Q. Then why do they have it?

A. It has been lent to them by customers.



Q. You mean customers lend banks money?

A. In effect. They put money into their accounts, so it is really lent to the banks.



Q. And what do the banks do with it?

A. Lend it to other customers.



Q. But you said that money they lent to other people was Assets?

A. Yes.



Q. Then Assets and Liabilities must be the same thing?

A. You can't really say that.



Q. But you've just said it. If I put $100 into my account the bank is liable to have to pay it back, so it's Liabilities. But they go and lend it to someone else, and he is liable to have to pay it back, so it's Assets. It's the same $100, isn't it?

A. Yes. But ...



Q. Then it cancels out. It means, doesn't it, that banks haven't really any money at all?

A. Theoretically ....



Q. Never mind theoretically. And if they haven't any money, where do they get their Reserves of $249,000,000 or thereabouts?

A. I told you. That is the money they have made.



Q.How?

A. Well, when they lend your $100 to someone they charge him interest.



Q.How much?

A. It depends on the Bank Rate. Say five and a-half per cent. That's their profit.



Q. Why isn't it my profit? Isn't it my money?

A. It's the theory of banking practice that ...



Q. When I lend them my $100 why don't I charge them interest?

A. You do.



Q. You don't say. How much?

A. It depends on the Bank Rate. Say half a per cent.



Q. Grasping of me, rather?

A. But that's only if you're not going to draw the money out again.



Q. But of course, I'm going to draw it out again. If I hadn't wanted to draw it out again I could have buried it in the garden, couldn't I?

A. They wouldn't like you to draw it out again.



Q. Why not? If I keep it there you say it's a Liability. Wouldn't they be glad if I reduced their Liabilities by removing it?

A. No. Because if you remove it they can't lend it to anyone else.



Q. But if I wanted to remove it they'd have to let me?

A. Certainly.



Q. But suppose they've already lent it to another customer?

A. Then they'll let you have someone else's money.



Q. But suppose he wants his too... and they've let me have it?

A. You're being purposely obtuse.



Q. I think I'm being acute. What if everyone wanted their money at once?

A. It's the theory of banking practice that they never would.



Q. So what banks bank on is not having to meet their commitments?

A. I wouldn't say that.



Q. Naturally. Well, if there's nothing else you think you can tell me ... ?

A. Quite so. Now you can go off and open a banking account.



Q. Just one last question.

A. Of course.



Q. Wouldn't I do better to go off and open up a bank?

What follows, in a series of posts, is from an adapted and extended transcript of [color="#008000"]The Capitalist Conspiracy (by G. Edward Griffin)[/color], a 1969 documentary, which gives a brief inside view of a small group of people who control the money systems of the world. The Foreword to the transcript, published in 1982 by H. B. Patriots, states that [indent]... [The Capitalist Conspiracy] does not tell all there is to know ... But it is the author's earnest hope that it will present enough of the incredible story to stimulate a strong curiosity on the part of the reader, a curiosity that, hopefully, will lead him to explore the heavier and more scholarly works...[/indent]

[floatleft][Image: lincoln-assasination-west-point-betrayal.jpg]

[size="2"]The tenet of conspiracy has been

a dominant force in all history, yet

many cannot see it at work today.[/size][/floatleft]Conspiracy. One of the darkest words in the language of man. Yet there is hardly a single page of history that does not partially reveal the deadly eye of conspiracy at work. It was a conspiracy that directed Brutus against Caesar in the Roman Senate on the Ides of March. It was a conspiracy that plotted the betrayal of West Point by Benedict Arnold during the American Revolution. It was a conspiracy that led John Wilkes Booth to the assassination of President Lincoln on Good Friday, 1865.



The past record of man is burdened with accounts of assassinations, secret combines, palace plots, and betrayals in war. The tenet of conspiracy has been a dominant force in all history. But in spite of this clear record, an amazing number of people have begun to scoff at the possibility of conspiracy at work today. They dismiss such an idea merely as "a conspiratorial view of history."



[floatright][Image: joe-valachi.jpg]

[size="2"]Joe Valvachi, one-time mobster-

murderer, is shown as he testified

before the Senate Rackets

Committee. Once a member of the

Cosa Nostra, Valachi spilled out to

the public a tale of conspiracy,

crime, and racketeering. The Mafia

reportedly put a price of $100.000

on his head to any member of the

organization who could silence him.[/size][/floatright]The purpose of this presentation is to show that the conspiratorial view of history – particularly of recent history – is the correct view; that there is a secret and powerful combine at work today; that it constitutes the unseen government of the United States: and that it properly can be identified as The Capitalist Conspiracy.



In 1963, the nation was held spellbound by the testimony of gangster Joe Valachi as he exposed the inside workings of the international crime syndicate known as the Cosa Nostra or the Mafia. No matter how carefully criminal conspiracies are organized, eventually they are exposed because someone on the inside goes to the authorities and talks.



The same is true with political conspiracies. For instance, over the years there has been a steady stream of defectors from the Communist apparatus and, through their testimony, we now have a clear idea of how that conspiracy is organized and operated.



But one large piece of the puzzle always has been missing. It is a matter of record that some of the greatest help to world Communism often has come from prominent and respectable leaders within the United States. Obviously, these men are not Communists. As a matter of fact, most of them are extremely wealthy and are thought of as capitalists who, supposedly, would have the most to lose under socialism and Communism.



And yet the record is disturbingly consistent, the Americans repeatedly have asked why? Why have some of the richest people in the United States – both in and outside of government – aligned themselves with leftist policies that would appear to be the path to their own destruction? And if there is a conspiracy at work among these men, why hasn't someone on the inside exposed it? The answer is, someone has!

[size="2"]Dr. Carroll Quigley, professor of

history at Georgetown University,

is, by his own boast, an insider

with a front-row view of the world's

money power structure. In his book

Tragedy and Hope, he cautiously

exposed one of the best kept

secrets of all time.[/size][/floatright]Dr. Carroll Quigley is a professor of history at Georgetown University. He is the author of the widely used textbook Evolution of Civilization. He is a member of the editorial board of the monthly periodical Current History. He has been a frequent lecturer and consultant for such groups as the Industrial College of the Armed Forces, the Brookings Institution, the U.S. Naval Weapons Laboratory, the Naval College, the Smithsonian Institute, and the State Department. Dr. Quigley has also been closely associated with many of the family dynasties of the super-rich. He is, by his own boast, an insider with a front row view of the world's money power structure.



When Dr. Quigley wrote the 1300-page book of dry history entitled Tragedy and Hope, it was obvious that it would never be read by the masses. Its was intended for the intellectual elite. And to such a select readership, Dr. Quigley cautiously exposed one of the best kept secrets of all time. But he also made it quite clear that he was an extremely friendly apologist for this group and the he fully supports their goals and purposes.



On page 950, Dr. Quigley says:

[indent]... I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty wars 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 ... [/indent]

Dr. Quigley points out that, during the past 200 years, while the peoples of the world gradually were winning their political freedom from monarchies, the major banking families of the world were nullifying the trend towards representative government by setting up new dynasties of political control, but behind the scenes, in the form of international financial combines. These banking dynasties had learned that all governments – whether they be monarchies or democracies – must borrow money in times of emergency, and that, by providing such funds from their own private resources – with strings attached, of course – gradually they could bring both kings and democratic leaders under their control.



Dr. Quigley believes that people should be more familiar with the identities of these clever banking dynasties. They include such names as Barring, Hambros, Lazard, Erlanger, Warburg, Schroder. Selingman, the Speyers, Mirabaud, Mallet, Fould, and above all, Rothschild and Morgan.

[size="2"]All governments – whether they be monarchies or

democracies – must borrow money in times of

emergency. Centuries ago the international

banking dynasties learned that, by providing funds

from their own private resources with strings

attached – gradually they could bring both kings

and democratic leaders under their control.[/size][/floatleft]It should be noted that, while the Rothschilds and other Jewish families cooperated together in these ventures, this was by no means a Jewish monopoly as some have alleged. Men of finance of many nationalities and many religious and non-religious backgrounds collaborated together to create this super-structure of hidden power. Its essence was not race, nor religion, nor nationality. It was simply a passion for control over other human beings. Dr. Quigley identifies this group simply as the "International Bankers."



These are not the same as the local commercial bankers with whom we deal in everyday life. International bankers deal, not with the general public, but with the industrial giants of the world, with other financial institutions, and especially with governments. The key to their success has been to control and manipulate the money system of a nation, while letting it appear to be controlled by the government. The net effect is to create money out of nothing, lend it to the government, and then collect interest on it; a rather profitable transaction, to say the least.



[floatright][Image: william-paterson.jpg]

[size="2"]In 1694, international banker William

Paterson, obtained the charter of the

Bank of England, and the power over

England's money system fell into

private hands.[/size][/floatright]For example, in 1694, international banker William Paterson obtained the charter of the Bank of England, and the power over England's money system fell into private hands. In a boastful mood, Paterson said:

[indent]The bank hath benefit of interest on all moneys which it creates out of nothing.

[/indent]

Two hundred and thirty years later, Reginald McKenna, British Chancellor of the Exchequer, said:

[indent]The banks can, and do, create money... . And they who control the credit of the nation direct the policy of Governments, and hold in the hollow of their hands the destiny of the people.

[/indent]

[floatright][Image: jp-morgan.jpg]

[size="2"]J. Pierpont Morgan 1902.

Rivalled only by the

Rockefeller dynasty for

economic and political

power in the United States.[/size][/floatright]In 1946, England's Labour government revoked the charter and nationalized the Bank of England. Officially it became a part of the government itself. It is important to note, however, that as late as 1961, Lord Cromer of the banking family of Baring, was named governor of the bank, and the board of directors included representatives of Lazard, Hambros, and Grenfell. Nothing had changed except outward appearances to confuse and deceive the uninformed.



Turning to the United States, Dr. Quigley tells us:

[indent]The structure of financial controls created by the tycoons of "Big Banking" and "Big Business" in the period 1880-1933 was of extraordinary complexity, one business fief being built on another, both being allied and semi-independent associates, the whole rearing upward into two pinacles of economic and financial power, ... One, centered in New York, was headed by J. P. Morgan and Company, and the other, in Ohio, was headed by the Rockefeller family. When these two cooperated, as they generally did, they could influence the economic life of the country to a large degree and could almost control its political life, at least on the Federal level.

[/indent]

In the United State it was inevitable that the international banking interests would attempt to establish the same kind of private monopoly over the money system that they had achieved in England, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. The same formula would be used. Make it look like a government operation, but keep the control in private hands.



[floatleft]The key to success for the international bankers

has been to gain control over the money system

of a nation, while letting it appear to be controlled

by the government. In this way they have been able

to create money out of nothing, lend it to the

government, and then collect interest on it. This

is the ultimate in conspiratorial power and is the

key to understanding our national debt.[/floatleft]John D. Rockefeller had purchased the Chase Bank, and his brother William bought the National City Bank of New York. The Rockefeller Chase Bank was later merged with the Warburg's Manhattan Bank to form the Chase-Manhattan, one of the most powerful financial combines in the world today. Acting in concert with the Morgan banking dynasty, they spent untold millions of dollars to promote legislation that would grant to them a private franchise over this nation's money system.



[floatright] President Wilson campaigned strongly for

legislation that gave to private bankers a franchise

of this nation’s monetary system.[/floatright]To sell this scheme to the voters, the monopolists created the propaganda line that the proposed banking law somehow would work against the monopolies. Politicians took up the cry "Banking Reform" and "Down with Wall Street." And then, to make it look convincing, the financial tycoons publicly pretended to oppose the measure, all the while financing it behind the scenes.



On December 22, 1913, the Federal Reserve Act finally was passed into law. Something known as the Federal Reserve System came into being, and, with it, total control of the nation's money fell into private hands.

[floatleft][Image: federal-reserve-system.jpg][/floatleft]The Federal Reserve System solely, is responsible for creating money in the United States. The Treasury prints only what the Federal Reserve tells it to print. The far greater amount of checkbook money is also determined by this group. Yet, it is not a government agency, and is entirely beyond the reach of the American voter.



Technically, the stock of the Federal Reserve System is held by twelve privately owned National Banks that make up the system. These, in turn, are owned primarily by the private banking dynasties that worked so hard to bring that system into being.



By law, the seven members of the Federal Reserve Board are appointed by the President for a term of fourteen years each. In spite of the incredible length of these appointments, nevertheless, they are supposed to create the illusion that the people, acting through their elected leaders, have some voice in the nation's monetary policies. In practice, however, every president since the beginning of the Federal Reserve System has appointed only those men who were congenial to the financial interests of the international banking dynasties. There have been no exceptions.

[size="2"]"Colonel" Edward Mandell House,

the “unseen guardian angel” of the

Federal Reserve System, was a

behind-the-scenes manipulator of

prominent political figures.

Woodrow Wilson was totally

dependent on House for all political

decisions.[/size][/floatright]It is now known that the original Federal Reserve Board was hand picked by "Colonel" Edward Mandell House, who early in his career had represented British and American banking interests.



The Intimate Papers of Colonel House, edited by Charles Seymour, reveal House as the "unseen guardian angel" of the Federal Reserve System. It is clear from the words of Mr. Seymour that the Schiffs, the Warburgs, the Kahns, the Rockefellers. and the Morgans all had faith in House.



In 1912, Colonel House authored a book entitled Philip Dru, Administrator. The hero, a thinly disguised version of himself in real life, was a behind-the-scenes manipulator of prominent political figures. In the disguised form of a novel, the book lays bare the general strategy that has been followed ever since, even to the very present.



It tells of how a small group of Insiders cause a depression and then bring about the election of a man named Rockland. Rockland gives fireside chats and launches a program called the New Era to strengthen government control over the masses. Eventually, the Insiders who control the government weaken the country deliberately to the point of Civil War which provides them with the excuse for establishing a dictatorship under Philip Dru.



Colonel House was the man who selected Woodrow Wilson as a presidential candidate, and later became his principle advisor. Wilson was totally dependent on House for all political decisions. He was his alter ego. The President himself had written:

[indent]Mr. House is my second personality. He is my independent self. His thoughts and mine are one. If I were in his place, I would do just as he suggested.

[/indent]

When the federal government goes into debt, it borrows that money from the Federal Reserve System. The national debt presently is at the 400 billion mark. Just to pay that interest on this debt, taxpayers are forced to contribute over 20 billion dollars every year – and, remember, that is interest on money created out of nothing.



Dr. Quigley reveals the goal of this operation as:



[indent]... nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.



The apex of the system was to be the Bank of International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations.



Each central bank, in the hands of men like Montague Norman of the bank of England, Benjamin Strong of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, Charles Rist of the Bank of France, and Hjalmer Schacht of the Reichs bank, sought to dominate its government by its ability to control treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world.

[size="2"]In 1870, a wealthy British socialist

by the name of John Ruskin, was

appointed as professor of fine arts

at Oxford University in London. He

advocated the necessiy of a ruling

class and the extension of English

culture throughout the world.[/size][/floatleft]In 1870, a wealthy British socialist by the name of John Ruskin was appointed professor of fine arts at Oxford University in London. He taught his students that the state must take control of the means of production and organize them for the good of the community as a whole. But he advocated placing control of the state into the hands of a single dictator. He said:

[indent]My continual aim has been to show the eternal superiority of some men to others, sometimes even of one man to all others.

[/indent]

[floatright][Image: cecil-rhodes.jpg]

[size="2"]Cecil Rhodes, one of the world's

richest men, formed a secret

society and spent most of his vast

income to advance the ruling class

ideas of John Ruskin, his former

teacher.[/size][/floatright]Dr. Quigley tells us:



[indent]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 this 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.



Ruskin's message had a sensational impact. His inaugural lecture was copied out in long-hand by one undergraduate, Cecil Rhodes, who kept it with him for thirty years.

[/indent]

Cecil Rhodes made one of the world's greatest fortunes. With help from international bankers, he was able to establish a virtual monopoly over all of the diamonds that came from South Africa and most of the gold as well. Throughout his entire life, Cecil Rhodes spent most of his vast income to advance the ruling-class ideas of John Ruskin.



Many people are familiar with the world-famous Rhodes Scholarships which were established to promote the less controversial aspects of John Ruskin's dream, but very few are familiar with the fact that, in 1891, Cecil Rhodes established a secret society to promote the rest of that dream.



[floatright][Image: cecil-rhodes-secret-society.jpg]

[size="2"]The secret society created by Cecil Rhodes set up an inner

circle of initiates which, in turn, established Round Table

Groups in the chief British dependencies and the United

States. The Round Table Group in the United States

promptly created an external organization known as the

CFR, the Council on Foreign Relations.[/size][/floatright]Dr. Quigley explains:

[indent]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).

[/indent]

Here, then was the classic pattern of political conspiracies throughout all history. As the center, usually depicted as the all-seeing eye, there is a tiny group in complete control with one man as the undisputed leader. Next comes a circle of secondary leadership that, for the most part, is completely unaware of the inner core. They are led to believe that they are the innermost ring.



In time, as these conspiracies are built from the center out, they form additional rings of organization. Those in the outer eschelons usually are poor idealistic souls with an honest desire to improve the world. They never suspect an inner control for sinister purposes, and only those few who demonstrate a ruthless capacity for higher leadership are ever allowed to see it.

[size="2"]Lord Alfred Milner, Governor-

General and High Commissioner

of South Africa. fell heir to the

leadership of Cecil Rhode's secret

society. Under Milner's direction,

it became a dominant force in

British imperial and foreign affairs.

Later it formed semi-secret groups

in many other countries including

the United States.[/size][/floatright]After the death of Cecil Rhodes, the inner core of his secret society fell to the hands of Lord Alfred Milner, Governor-General and High Commissioner of South Africa. As director of a number of public banks and corporate precursor of England's Midland Bank, he became one of greatest political and financial powers in the world. Milner recruited into his secret society a group of young men chiefly from Oxford and Toynbee Hall and, according to Quigley:

[indent]Through his influence these men were able to win influential posts in government and international finance and became the dominant influence in British imperial and foreign affairs up to 1939. Under Milner in South Africa, they were known as Milner's Kindergarten until 1910. In 1909-1913, they organized semi-secret groups, known as Round Table Groups, in the chief British dependencies and the United States.

[/indent]

The Round Table Group in the United States promptly created an external organization known as the CFR, the Council on Foreign Relations. Its is through the organizational ring and then outward through tax-exempt foundations, universities, and government agencies that the international capitalist conspiracy has dominated the domestic and foreign policies of the United States for over fifty years. And lest there is any doubt as to who is behind the CFR, Dr. Quigley tells us bluntly:

[indent]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.

[/indent]

The CFR building is located on the west side of fashionable Park Avenue in New York. Although it definitely is not the center of the conspiracy, and although practically none of its members are aware of an inner control, nevertheless, it is semi-secret in its operation. It shuns publicity, and members are sworn not to disclose to the public the proceedings of its conferences and briefings. It has a formal membership of 400 elite personalities.



In Harpers magazine for July, 1958, there is an article entitled "School for Statesmen," written by CFR member Joseph Kraft. Kraft revealed that one of the chief architects for the CFR was none other than "Colonel" Edward Mandel House. Boasting of how the Council had succeeded in penetrating the Executive Branch of the Federal Government even before World War II, Kraft wrote:

[floatright][Image: draft-UN-charter-CFR.jpg]

Francisco, June 21, 1945. At center is acting UN Secretary

General Alger Hiss (also CFR member). At right is Andrei

Gromyko, Soviet Ambassador and head of the U.S.S.R.

delegation. It is a sobering fact that the UN was created

predominantly by CFR members and Communists. Alger

Hiss was both. Their common goal is world government.[/size][/floatright]

[indent]With the coming of hostilities, the Council's assembled pool of talent and information came into sudden and dramatic play. Stimson went to Washington as Secretary of War, taking with him the small nucleus of men, many unknown then, who were to found this country's modern defense establishment.



"Whenever we needed a man," John McCloy, the present Council chairman who served Stimson as personnel chief, recalls, "we thumbed through the roll of Council members and put through a call to New York."



At least as important, the Council provided for the U.S. government the first organized framework for postwar planning. Less than a fortnight after the guns began pounding in Europe, and a full two years before Pearl Harbor, Armstrong and the Council's executive director, Walter Mallory, journeyed to Washington with a proposition. State lacked the appropriations to set up a planning division; Congress was bearish about any official move that hinted at U.S. intervention; there was a danger that, if it finally did get going with a sudden jolt, postwar planning might be out of the hands of State. Why not, they asked, let the Council begin the work, privately, with the understanding that its apparatus would be turned over to the State as soon as feasible?



Secretary Hull was in favor. Accordingly, in December 1939, the Council, with financial aid from the Rockefeller Foundation, established four separate planning groups – Security and Armaments; Economic and Financial; Political; Territorial – comprising about a dozen men each including research secretaries of the highest caliber (Jacob Viner of Princeton and Alvin Hansen of Harvard in the economic group, for example). A fifth group was added in 1941 to consider the problems of the exiled governments of the occupied European countries which the State Department, because the United States was neutral, had to treat gingerly. In 1942. the whole apparatus with most of the personnel was taken into the State Department as the nub of its Advisory Committee on Postwar Planning Problems ...



It appears that Council studies played a considerable part in shaping the Charter of the United Nations.


[/indent][floatright][Image: hiss-meets-chambers.jpg]

[size="2"]A dramatic moment in history. Alger Hiss (standing right) comes face-to-face with Whittaker

Chambers (standing left). Chambers, a former Communist and spy courier, is the man who

identified Hiss as a member of the Party. Robert Stripling, Chief Investigator for the House

Committee on un-American Activities, is pointing at Chambers. Because of this exposure,

Hiss the Communist is now far better known than Hiss the CFR member. Yet it is that latter

connection that undoubtedly opened many doors of government to him and was responsible

for his meteoric success.[/size][/floatright]

That, of course, is a classic understatement. It is significant to recall that Alger Hiss, identified as a Communist agent by former Communist Whittaker Chambers, was one of those members of the CFR who was drafted into the State Department. His CFR connections had already earned him the position of special attorney for the Justice Department and Trustee for the Carnegie Endowment Fund for International Peace. Once in the State Department, he became Director of the Office of Special Political Affairs and was in charge of all postwar planning, most of which directly involved the creation of the United Nations.



At the San Francisco Conference, Alger Hiss was the chief planner and executive for the whole affair. He organized the American delegation and was acting Secretary-General. Visitors passes bore his signature. He also served on the steering and executive committees which were charged with the responsibility of actually writing the UN Charter. At the conclusion of the Conference, Alger Hiss personally carried the freshly written document back to Washington by plane for Senate ratification.



While Alger Hiss the Communist is now well known, Alger Hiss the CFR member is not. Yet, the latter connection was just as important – perhaps more so – for opening doors of government service to him and for his meteoric success

The CFR was able to work its success magic in practically all segments of the Federal Government and outside of government, as well. At the time of writing this article. Mr. Kraft boasted that the CFR membership, even then, included:

[indent]... the President, the Secretary of State. the Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, the Board chairmen of three of the country's five largest industrial corporations. two of the four richest insurance companies. and two of the three biggest banks, plus the senior partner; of two of the three leading Wall Street law firms, the publishers of the two biggest news magazines and of the country's most influential newspaper, and the presidents of the Big Three in both universities and foundations, as well as a score of other college presidents and a scattering of top scientists and journalists.

[/indent]

The CFR, from behind the scenes, has dominated this nation for decades. CFR members include top executives and journalists from the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Chicago Daily News, The Christian Science Monitor, Harpers, Look, Time, Life, Newsweek, U.S. News and World Report, The Encyclopedia Brittanica, CBS NBS, MGM, The Motion Picture Association of America; they include directors of the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Carnegie Endowment Fund; they include Presidents Hoover, Eisenhower, Johnson and Nixon. Secretaries of State Stettinius, Acheson, Dulles, Herter, and Rusk; a fantastic percentage of the President's Cabinet, Under-Secretaries, the Federal Reserve Board, Ambassadors to other countries, Supreme Court Justices and presidential advisors. The average American has never heard of the CFR, yet it is the unseen government of the United States.



Dr. Quigley informs us:



[indent]This group, which in the United States was completely dominated by J. P. Morgan and Company from the 1880's to the 1930's, was cosmopolitan, Angliophile, internationalist. Ivy League, eastern seaboard, high Episcopalian and European-culture conscious. Their connection with ivy League colleges rested on the fact that the large endowments of these institutions required constant consultation with the financiers of Wall Street ...



As late as the 1930's, J. P. Morgan and his associates were the most significant figures in policy making at Harvard, Columbia, and to a lesser extent, Yale. While the Witneys were significant at Yale, the Prudential insurance Company (through Edward D. Duffield) dominated Princeton. ... The chief officials of these universities were beholden to these financial powers and usually owed their jobs to them.

[size="2"]Congressman Nixon "exposed" Alger Hiss[/size][/floatleft]It is a sobering fact that the hidden power structure of international finance has exerted tremendous influence over public opinion in this country through its virtual control of higher education and major segments of mass communications. The human mind is like a computer. No matter how efficient it may be, its reliability is only as great as the information fed into it. If it is possible to control the input of the human mind, then no matter how intelligent a person may be, it is entirely possible to program what he will think. And yes, it is even possible to program people to laugh at the mere mention of the word conspiracy.



Such programming, of course, can work in both directions. While on group has been conditioned not to see any conspiracy at work, another group has been led to believe that Communists have been behind practically everything; a position easily made to look ridiculous. These well-intentioned anti-Communists have been correct in their charge of conspiracy but often incorrect in knowing who to blame.



As far back as 1907, Trotsky was financed by British bankers. By 1917, the major financing for the Communist revolution in Russia was coming through Lord Alfred Milner, the leader of that inner core within the Round Table Groups and the CFR. In America, Jacob Schiff of Kuhn, Loeb and Company gave twenty million dollars to Trotsky. From Germany, millions more came from Max Warburg. The Communist movement, not only in the United States, but around the world always has been financed by the international banking Establishment.

Alger Hiss, he became a national hero

almost overnight. But when Congressman

Reece (above right) began to expose the

link-up between Hiss, the Carnegie

Endowment, the Morgan Bank, and the tax-

exempt foundations, the Establishment

moved mightily against him.[/size][/floatright]Dr. Quigley explains why the Establishment has never greatly worried about the Communist movement in America. He says:

[indent]It must be recognized that the power that these energetic leftwingers exercised was never their own power or Communist power but was ultimately the power of the international financial coterie ...[/indent]

In the 1950s, when the public became aroused over evidence of Communist subversion in the Federal Government, it was a simple expedient for a promising young congressman from California to dramatically expose one Communist agent. The Establishment press gave it extensive coverage, the public was placated, and the obscure congressman became a national hero almost overnight. But when Congressman Reece of Tennessee began to investigate the link-up between Alger Hiss, the Carnegie Endowment, the Morgan Bank, and the interlocking tax-exempt foundations, the Establishment press and the administration moved mightily against him. The pressures were so great that he was forced to abandon his investigation. And no one has dared to try it since.

[size="2"]If those who seek world domination can stimulate leftist mobs into

violent confrontation with local law enforcement, and also provide

exhaustive news coverage so that the entire nation can see and

tremble, then the peaceful and freedom loving majority can be

programmed to a vast expansion of government powers and even a

national police force offered supposedly to end the violence.[/size][/floatleft]After a man has far more money than he possibly can spend for pleasures, what is left to excite him? For those with a ruling-class mentality, the answer is power – raw power over other human beings. Money can buy such power only to a point. Beyond that, politics is the sport. And world politics is the ultimate game.



[floatright][Image: stimulate-fear-atomic-war.jpg]

[size="2"]If those who seek world domination can raise the spectre of an enemy

armed to the teeth with superior atomic weapons on the verge of

launching a nuclear holocaust, and also offer world government as a

prevention, then millions of Americans can be programmed to accept

the loss of national sovereignty as “our last best hope for peace.” This

is the meaning of “pressure from above and below.” To put over police

state measures at home, they need chaos, crime and anarchy in the

streets. To sell, the dea of world government, they need the constant

threat of nuclear war. Or, as they say in revolutionary circles, the real

action is in the reaction.[/size][/floatright]For the purposes of this presentation, we have referred to those in the international power structure as capitalists. But these men are not really capitalists in the classical sense; they are merely rich socialists. They have gained vast wealth, not through honest competition and free enterprise, but by political influence and favoritism, the granting of government protection to eliminate competition, and by gigantic fraud of the money system backed by government force.



Money alone is not what motivates these men. They are striving to create a world super-state with the expectation that, from behind the scenes, they will be the ones who will rule. Not free enterprise capitalism, but big government is the conspiracy's life-force. World government is its ultimate goal.



[floatright]"Pressure from above and below" is the

revolutionary strategy of deliberately

creating problems and then offering only

those solutions that result in the expansion

of government.[/floatright]The answer is simple. In revolutionary literature the tactic is known as "Pressure from above and below." It is the strategy that Colonel House laid down in his book Philip Dru, Administrator. Deliberately create problems, and then offer only those solutions that result in the expansion of government. Create conditions so frightful at home and abroad that the abandonment of personal liberties and national sovereignty will appear as a reasonable price for a return to domestic tranquility and world peace.

[size="2"]James Kunen[/size][/floatleft]In 1968, Random House, Inc. published a book by James Kunen: The Strawberry Statement: Notes of a College Revolutionary. Kunen carries the usual New Left credentials and is a classic example of the extent to which a highly intelligent mind can be programmed by the Establishment into thinking that it is acting against the Establishment.



[floatright]Columbia in New York became one of the first

American universities to be seized by radical

students. Initially the movement was not large and

easily could have been stopped by a simple police

action. Encouraged by weakness on the part of

the school administration, the movement grew in

size and popularity. Eight days later, a counter-

demonstration by non-radical students attempted

to block the passing of food to the radicals who

occupied the buildings. Finally, the movement took

on the aspects of mob violence as leftist students

piled up police barricades and threatened anyone

who interfered.[/floatright]Kunen was one of the leading participants in the first student seizure of an American university which occurred at Columbia in April of 1968. Initially the movement was not large and easily could have been stopped by a simple police action. But, as usual, the anti-Establishment forces received their greatest help from the Establishment itself. For several days the police were told not to interfere. Meanwhile, university officials groveled in the face of outrageous propaganda charges, and the media made national heroes of the rebelling students. MGM even made a movie out of Kunen's book.



On page 130, Kunen wrote:



[indent]In the evening I went up to the U, to check out a strategy meeting. A kid was giving a report on the SDS convention. He said that ... at the convention men from Business International for their client groups and the heads of government, tried to buy up a few radicals.



These men are the world’s leading industrialists and they convene to decide how our lives are going to go. These are the guys who wrote that Alliance for Progress. They are the left wing of the ruling class.



They offered to finance our demonstrations in Chicago. We were also offered ESO (Rockefeller) money. They want us to make a lot of radical commotion so they can look more in the center as they move to the left.

are fighting.[/size][/floatright]Jerry Kirk, while a student at the University of Chicago, on behalf of the FBI became active in the SDS, the DuBois Club, the Black Panthers, and the Communist Party. In 1969, Mr. Kirk broke from the Party and the following year testified before the House and Senate Internal Security Committees. Here is what Mr. Kirk has told us:



[indent]Young people have no conception of the conspiracy’s strategy of pressure from above and pressure from below so well outlined in Communist Jan Kozak’s And Not A Shot Is Fired. They have no idea that they are playing into the hands of the Establishment they claim to hate.



The radicals think that they’re fighting the forces of the super-rich, like Rockefeller and Ford, and don’t realize that it is precisely, such forces which are behind their own revolution, financing it, and using it for their own purposes.

[/indent]

When Stokeley Carmichael was head of the militant revolutionary group known as SNCC, he was invited to speak at the University of Chicago. Jerry Kirk, then still a Black Panther, was among those who attended, and here is how he described Carmichael’s appearance:



[indent]Mr Carmichael was obviously in the middle of something rather important which made him more nervous and more tense than in the past ... He started speaking of things which he said he could not have said before because his research was not finished ...



He spoke of the false consciousness of many blacks who believed the Jews were the instruments of oppression of blacks, and
... he made note of the fact that, even though many Jewish people, for example in New York, owned quite a bit of land, one must understand that the overwhelming percentages of mortgages in Harlem was owned, not by Jewish people. but by Morgan Guarantee Trust (the Morgan family) and Chase Manhattan Bank (the Rockefellers).



He repeated the line from the song he liked so well. "Something is happening here, but you don't know quite what it is, do you, Mr. Jones?"



He kept hitting on the theme that a very large monopoly capitalist money group, bankers to be exact, was instrumental in formenting this idea that Jews are the ones actually behind the oppression of blacks. What he was getting at was that ... the Jews were simply one strata of society who are themselves being oppressed by people who were much richer and much more powerful.



In the agencies of this power, he cited banks, the chief among which were Morgan Guarantee Trust and Chase Manhattan. And the foundations connected with these monoliths.

[/indent]

It was not long after this that Stokely Carmichael mysteriously was ousted from both SNCC and the Black Panthers. Apparently he had learned too much.

[size="2"]The Insiders publically condemn lawless-

-ness but privately encourage conditions

that make it in inevitable because they

know that widespread anarchy and mass

destruction will provide them with a compell-

-ing excuse for establishing a police state.[/size][/floatright]More and more, young radicals are beginning to wake up to the fact that their entire lives have been carefully programmed by the very people who are their hate symbols. They are beginning to realize that their so-called anti-Establishment outlook actually is the calculated product of the Establishment press, the Establishment communications media, the Establishment entertainment industry, the Establishment schools.



By relaxing the barriers against crime drugs, pornography, and promiscuity – all in the name of constitutional liberties – the Insiders know that the predictable product will be widespread anarchy, degeneracy, and lack of self-discipline. That will provide them with a visible and compelling excuse for the application of external discipline through their favorite instrument, the police state.



Rich men's corporations publish and popularize revolutionary books and songs. Through advertising, rich men's businesses subsidize revolutionary magazines.



Rich men's tax-exempt foundations pour millions of dollars into left wing organizations. The Federal Establishment in Washington, through agencies like the OEO, provides weekly pay checks to thousands of hard-core revolutionaries. Examples of this can be found everyday. The following typical item appeared in the Detroit Sunday News, May 23, 1971:



[indent]While refusing to divulge names, IRS sources say that the Serviceman's Fund [which finances revolutionary activities among servicemen] has been largely bankrolled by well-to-do civilians. One example of this kind of support which did surface identifiably last year was the $8,500 nut channeled from the Philip Stern Family Foundation to underwrite Seaman Roger Priest's underground paper OM, which ran do-it-yourself advice for desertion to Canada and advocated the assassination of President Nixon.



"Entertainment Industry for Peace and Justice," the anti-war show-biz front organized by Jane Fonda, Dick Gregory and Dalton Trumbo, now claims over 800 film, TV, and music names.

[/indent]

And so we return again to the basic question, why? Why does the Establishment publicly condemn but privately support the anti-Establishment movement?



Former Communist Jerry Kirk answers:



[indent]The idea is to create a situation where the people are so frightened of the violence all around them that they ... will throw their hands up in the air and demand. "Federal Government-do something!" And the only choice open will be martial law.



The Communists, black militants, and revolutionaries will never succeed in overthrowing the government of the United States. But, unless they are stopped, they will scare the American people into accepting socialism from Washington and Statist rule by the Insiders of the Establishment. This is what it is really all about.

Superb lecture from Indic perspective, and very informative!!



However, Sri Gurumurthy is quite a bit off on two very important aspects/events of the Western world -- the Stars Wars programme, and 9/11. But that is very understandable as they do not belong to his core areas of interest. Also, although of great geopolitical importance, they are of minor significance to what he was conveying in the lecture.

[floatleft][Image: van-zwack.jpg][/floatleft]In Bavaria, the year 1786, acting on a tip from an informer, police raided the home of a prominent attorney named von Zwack. They seized documents and letters revealing that he was a high ranking member of an extensive conspiracy called the Order of the llluminati.



[floatright][Image: weishaupt.jpg][/floatright]Over the centuries, forms of the word Illuminati, meaning "the enlightened ones," have been used by many secret sects and occult organizations. Most prominent among these were the Illumbrados of Spain, the Guerinets of France, and the Roshaniya of Afghanistan. But these were concerned primarily with psychological and spiritual objectives, a proclaimed inner wisdom and mind-mastery of the secrets of the universe. The conspiracy exposed in Bavaria was of an entirely different order.



The Illuminati was founded on May 1, 1776 by Adam Weishaupt, a professor at Ingolstadt University. Weishaupt obviously had been a serious student of the occult, for many of its bizarre features and symbols were incorporated into his organization.



Weishaupt had been active in the Masonic Lodges of Germany, and found in them the perfect vehicle for recruiting into his secret order, which he described publically as the highest level of Freemasonry. The Illuminati was formally incorporated into the Masonic Lodges at the Congress of Wilhelmsbad in 1780. It should be noted that Freemasonry in England and America historically is quite different. Its members are characterized by the highest standards of integrity. Nevertheless, it is a fact that from 1780 on, the Illuminati did flourish as a parasite at the highest levels of the Masonic movement in Europe, especially the Grand Orient Lodges of France.



[floatright][Image: rings-of-illuminati.jpg]

[size="2"]Within the Illuminati, there were eight conspiratorial

rings. Only when the member advanced to the

level of Presbyter or "Priest" was he allowed finally

to see the ultimate goals of the Order. They were

(1) humanism and (2) world government ruled from

behind the scenes by the Illuminated Ones.[/size][/floatright]There were eight conspiratorial ring within rings advancing from the outermost "Novice" inward to "Rex" or King." The king, of course, was Weishaupt, himself, who had adopted the code name "Sparticus." Those in the outer rings were told that the grand purpose of the Order was "to make of the human race, without any distinction of nation, condition, or profession, one good and happy family."



But by the time the member had advanced to the level of "Presbyter" or "Priest" his oath of absolute secrecy and obedience had become deadly serious. Only then was he allowed finally to see the ultimate goal of the order. It was the destruction of all religion replaced by the worship of reason or humanism; and the destruction of all independent governments, replaced by a new world order – a world government ruled from behind the scenes by the Illuminated Ones. Needless to say, most members were never allowed to see these goals.



In the words of Adam Weishaupt himself:



[indent]These good folk swell our numbers and fill our money-box. Set yourselves to work: these gentlemen must be made to nibble at the bait ... But this sort of people must always be made to believe that the grade they have reached is the last ...



The most wonderful thing of all is that the distinguished Lutheran and Calvinist theologians who belong to our order really believe that they see in it the true and genuine sense of the Christian religion! O, mortal man, is there anything that you cannot be made to believe?

The public record of the Illuminati is quite thin, but it does show that before it was exposed briefly in 1786 it had already enjoyed immense success in attracting into its outer rings some of the most prominent men of Europe. Its roster included important names in both government and finance. It was the most important single force behind the French Revolution.



[floatright][Image: george-washington.jpg]

[size="2"]George Washington warned about

the Illuminati in the United States.[/size][/floatright]Not only had the illuminati deeply penetrated the Grand Orient Lodges of France, and the Masonic Lodges of Germany, but it also was known in the United States. In 1798, George Washington, who was the first master of the Alexandria Masonic Lodge, composed a letter to a Reverend G. W. Snyder. Here is what Washington wrote:



[indent]Reverend Sir: It was not my intention to doubt that the doctrine of the Illuminati and the principles of Jacobinism, had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more satisfied of this fact that I am.



The idea I meant to convey was that I did not believe the Lodges of Freemasons in this country had, as societies, endeavored to propagate the diabolical tenets.



That individuals of them may have done it, or that the founder, or instruments employed to found the democratic societies in the United States may have had this object, and actually had a separation of the people from their government in view, is too evident to be questioned.

[floatright][Image: karl-marx.jpg]

[size="2"]Karl Marx had joined a

conspiratorial circle called the

League of the Just. This group

later changed its name to the

Communist League.[/size][/floatright]Some years later, an obscure intellectual by the name of Karl Marx joined a conspiratorial circle called the League of the Just. Shortly afterward this group re-formed into still another organization called the Communist League, and, in 1847, they hired Marx to write their policy statement for the public. It was called the Communist Manifesto.



On the surface, the Manifesto appeared to be humanitarian call to the workers of the world to arise against their alleged capitalist exploiters. But it should be noted that the project was supervised by Frederick Engles, a capitalist of substantial wealth. Marx himself was so unimportant that for the first twenty years after its publication his name did not even appear on the Manifesto.



In 1920, just three years after the Bolsheviks seized Russia, Winston Churchill declared:

[indent][From] the days of Sparticus Weishaupt of those of Karl Marx, to those of Trotsky, Bela-Kuhn, Rosa Luxembourg and Emma Goldman, this world-wide conspiracy ... has been steadily growing. This conspiracy played a definitely recognizable role in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the nineteenth century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads, and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.

[/indent]

[floatright][Image: winston-churchill.jpg]

[size="2"]Winston Churchill recognized that

the Bolsheviks who seized Russia

in the name of Communism were

merely acting on behalf of the

illuminati, that older conspiracy

dating back to Adam Weishaupt.[/size][/floatright]In 1953, the Report of the California Senate Investigating Committee on Education contained an extremely revealing conclusion. It said:

[indent]So-called modern Communism is apparently the same hypocritical and deadly world conspiracy to destroy civilization that was founded by the secret order of the Illuminati in Bavaria on May 12, 1776, and that raised its hoary head in our colonies here at the critical period before the adoption of our Federal Constitution.

[/indent]

The symbol of the all-seeing eye is closely associated with the Illuminati. Like many other features of this conspiracy, apparently it was taken by Adam Weishpaut from the occult symbolism of ancient history. It appears today among the symbols of the Rosicrucians, the Freemasons, and many others around the world, including the Cao Dai in South Vietnam.



Undoubtedly, it is merely a coincidence that the all-seeing eye now appears on the alternate side of the Great Seal of the Federal Government and also on the one dollar note of the Federal Reserve System.



At the bottom of the Seal, in Roman numerals, there is the date 1776. This, of course, is the year of American Independence. Undoubtedly, it is merely a coincidence that it is also the year of the founding of the Illuminati.



[floatleft]Each year, May First is celebrated by communists

the world over as a day of international solidarity.

As mentioned previously, the Illuminati was also

founded on May First.[/floatleft]But, then, perhaps none of this is merely coincidence. Is it possible that both the Communist and Capitalist conspiracies have yet one more inner circle within the circle that is common to them both? Is it possible that both movements – unbeknownst to most of the people in them – are merely contemporary counterparts of a much older conspiracy? There is much evidence – far more than presented here – to indicate that this is the case, but, frankly, we don’t know. Until someone on the inside of such master conspiracy today, we simply have no way of finding our. But we do know that it is not impossible, and certainly not absurd.



What, then is our response? Fortunately, it in not necessary that we resolve the historical question of the conspiracy’s origin. Regardless of whether there is one controlling group, or two cooperating, or three competing, or four, or ten – in practical terms of what can be done about it, our response must be the same.



Conspiracy, as it operated at the highest level in the United States today, rests upon two solid foundations and enjoys the protection of shelter. If we could knock out its foundations it would collapse, and if we could strip away its shelter, it would wither and die.



The shelter is secrecy. The foundation are big government and manipulation of money. No conspiracy can stand the light of exposure. No conspiracy can rule the masses without the tool of an extensive government bureaucracy. And certainly no “capitalist” conspiracy can long survive without control over the nation’s money.



Expose the conspiracy. Reduce the size of government. Return our money to a standard that cannot be manipulated. This must be our response.
