The Council On Foreign Relations

Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)


"The Council on Foreign Relations took control of the ideological foundations of empire encompassing the corporate, banking, political, foreign policy, military, media, and academic elite of the nation into a generally cohesive overall world view.

The divide among aristocracy was never a question of -

Should we use American imperial power?

Why has America become an Empire?

Should there even be an Empire?

The CFR effectively undertook a policy coup d'état over American foreign policy at the outbreak World War II.

When war broke out, the Council began a "strictly confidential" project called the War and Peace Studies, in which top CFR members, financed by the Rockefeller Foundation, collaborated with the State Department in determining US policy.

The Rockefeller Foundation, pivotal in funding the eugenics movement in the US, played a pivotal part in bringing the eugenics ideology to Nazi Germany by facilitating the beliefs that brought about the Holocaust.

The policy of "containment" towards the Soviet Union that would define American foreign policy for nearly half a century was envisaged in a 1947 edition of Foreign Affairs, the academic journal of the Council on Foreign Relations.

So too were the ideological foundations for the Marshall Plan and NATO envisaged at the Council on Foreign Relations, with members of the Council recruited to enact, implement and lead these institutions.

The Council also played a role in the establishment and promotion of the United Nations, which was subsequently built on land bought from John D. Rockefeller, Jr." - Andrew Gavin Marshall


1921 Council on Foreign Relations founded as US counterpart to Royal Institute for International Affairs.

Paul Warburg and John D. Rockefeller are among initial funders.

John W. Davis, attorney to JP Morgan, is first president.

1922 Council on Foreign Relations begins publishing Foreign Affairs.

1939 Marshall Plan originates in the 'War and Peace Study Groups' instituted by the Council on Foreign Relations.

On December 6, 1939 the Rockefeller Foundation granted the Council $50,000 to finance the first year of the project.

March 11, 1941 The lend-lease program, formally titled "An Act to Promote the Defense of the United States", supplies Free France, the United Kingdom, the Republic of China, and later the Soviet Union and other Allied nations with food, oil, warships and warplanes, along with other weaponry totaling $31.4 billion all together with an $11.3 billion cutout for the Soviets.

1944 Foreign Affairs – the journal of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) – publishes an article entitled “Korea in the Postwar World” suggesting turning Korea, occupied by Japan, into a protectorate ruled by the Allies.

It suggest the Soviets occupy North Korea, while the US occupy South Korea.

Stalin supplies the communist government of Kim Il-sung in North Korea, building a 150,000-man army with hundreds of tanks, hundreds of warplanes, and heavy artillery largely using lend-lease equipment given to the Soviets by the Americans.

When the Americans departed South Korea they left only a constabulary force of 16,000 South Koreans with small arms – they did not have a single tank or even one anti-tank gun.

CFR prepares a memorandum for the State Department which states: "A further possible difficulty was cited arising from the Constitutional provision that only Congress may declare war. This argument was countered with the contention that a treaty would override this barrier, let alone the fact that our participation in such a police action as might be recommended by the international security organization [UN] need not necessarily be construed as war."

1947 US Secretary of State General George Marshall presents the Plan in a speech on June 5 1947 outlined in the proposals of the CFR study group of headed by the lawyer Charles M. Spofford and David Rockefeller, labeled 'Reconstruction in Western Europe'.

A specific proposal for unifying the Upper Silesian Coal basin as a bulwark against the USSR is made by John Foster Dulles.

William Clayton, the Under-Secretary for Economic Affairs, played a key role in preparing the plan and who, after pushing it through Congress, personally profited.

Anderson, Clayton & Co. secured $10 million of Marshall Plan orders up to the summer of 1949.

General Motors secured $5.5 million worth of orders between July 1950 and 1951 and the Ford Motor secured $1 million.

"The Objective of the influential majority of members of CFR has not changed since its founding in 1922, more than 50 years ago. In the 50th anniversary issue of Foreign Affairs, the first and leading article was written by CFR member Kingman Brewster, Jr. - Reflections on Our National Purpose. He did not back away from defining it: our national purpose should be to abolish our nationality. Indeed, he pulled out all the emotional stops in a hardsell for global government. In the entire CFR lexicon, there is no term of revulsion carrying a meaning so deep as - America First." - Admiral Chester Ward, former Judge Advocate General of the Navy, CFR member





if i remember correctly are not communists red ?


"The Council on Foreign Relations, headquartered in New York City, is composed of an elite of approximately 1600 of the nation's Establishment Insiders in the fields of high finance, academics, politics, commerce, the foundations, and the mass media.

During its first fifty years of existence, the CFR was almost never mentioned by any of the moguls of the mass media and yet the membership included top executives from the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, the Knight newspaper chain, NBC, CBS, Time, Life, Fortune, Business Week, US News & World Report, and many others." - Gary Alan


"In the technetronic society the trend seems to be toward effectively exploiting the latest communication techniques to manipulate emotions and control reason.

People are becoming increasingly malleable with increasing availability of biochemical means of control.

The projected world information grid for Japan, Western Europe, and the United States will create the basis for a common educational program.

We are witnessing the emergence of transnational elites.

It is likely that before long the social elites of most of the more advanced countries will be highly internationalist or globalist in spirit and outlook.

The nation-state is gradually yielding its sovereignty.

Further progress will require greater American sacrifices." - Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzezinski


"When Henry Stimson - the group's quintessential member - went to Washington in 1940 as Secretary of War, he took with him John McCloy, who was to become Assistant Secretary in charge of personnel. McCloy has recalled: "whenever we needed a man we thumbed through the roll of the council members." - Jack Anderson

"The Council on Foreign Relations is 'the establishment.' Not only does it have influence and power in key decision-making positions at the highest levels of government to apply pressure from above, but it also announces and uses individuals and groups to bring pressure from below, to justify the high level decisions for converting the US from a sovereign Constitutional Republic into a servile member state of a one-world dictatorship." - Former Congressman John Rarick

In the 1960s, as growing attention centered on the surreptitious governmental activities of the Council on Foreign Relations, subsidiary groups, known as the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderbergers, representing the identical financial interests, began operations, with the more important officials being members of all three groups.

"Five years ago, the Council on Foreign Relations gave me my first opportunity to work systematically on problems of foreign relations. My relations with it have remained close and my admiration for it has, if anything, increased." - Henry Kissinger 1961

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.





This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their philosophical ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought. All factual information presented on this web site is believed to be true and accurate and is presented as originally presented in print media which may or may not have originally presented the facts truthfully.
