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."

"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

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.

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.
