CFR prepares a memorandum for the State Department

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 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
"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
Post, Los Angeles Times, the Knight newspaper chain,

"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."

"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

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 cooperation. Cooperation 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.
