For as long as there has been an America, there have been those who seek to exploit her prosperity and might: Pirates, who operate in international waters outside the rule of law, elitists of the high seas, plundering the wealth of nations and leaving the smoldering husks of conquest in their wake. Time and time again, these international banks, corporations, and the politicians they finance, have effectively used strategic alliances to engage in economic warfare against their competition while incrementally using escalating crises they generate to establish global political hegemony.
For decades, the movements of these command-and-controllers have been closely monitored and resisted only by academics, deep insiders, and the most highly knowledgeable of watchdog groups. All of that is changing. Now, with the advent of the internet and the subsequent amalgamation of incalculable data, the average computer savvy individual with access to electronic media can conduct their own investigations with greater ease. This has notably led to a shift in the knowledge base of the grassroots and an exponential surge of anti-globalist groups around the world, particularly in the United States.
While the young America was in its inception as British colonies in revolt, another kind of revolution was taking place in Europe that would change the dynamics of empires forever. In 1773, Mayer Amschel Rothschild organized a meeting of the money powers of manufacturing and banking to discuss his plan. By combining their resources they would gain complete control of the economic and political sphere. Politicians would be servile and obedient to them. They would control all outlets of public information and provide all manner of vice to systematically corrupt the youth of all nations. Finally, they would fund all factions in war to draw all nations into their debt and use crises to push for new world order of a one-world government that is completely owned and operated by them. This plan would involve implementation by stealth until such a moment where no cunning or force could undermine it (Mullins, 1991).
In a similar fashion to the Rothschild meeting of the late eighteenth century, a secret gathering of elitists took place in a hotel room at a luxury resort in Jekyll Island, Georgia in 1910. With representatives of the Rockefellers’, Rothschild’s, the Vanderbilt banking family, Senator Nelson Aldrich, and others, constituted one quarter of the wealth of the entire planet. At this meeting the Federal Reserve System was devised. The voting and signing into law of the Federal Reserve Act by Woodrow Wilson on December 23, 1913 was done under the radar when most of Congress was home for Christmas (Griffin, 1994).
According to author and professor Murray N. Rothbard of the Ludwig von Mises Institute, “The Federal Reserve System virtually controls the nation’s monetary system, and it is accountable to no one. It has no budget, is subject to no audit, and no Congressional Committee knows of, or can truly supervise its operations.”(Rothbard 1996 ). All of their meetings are held in secret and half the owners are foreign nationals (Mullins 1991). They print money, issue credit “out of thin air,” and finance both sides of every war (Griffin 1994). Lew Rockwell, founder of the Mises Institute adds, “The century of central banking is also the century of total warfare.” Shortly after the formation of the Federal Reserve, World War I was in full swing.
During this, “War to end all wars,” a National Relief Fund was established and Republican Herbert Hoover was dispatched by Democrat Woodrow Wilson to live in Belgium and work for Emile Francqui, the twelfth richest man in Europe and an owner of the Federal Reserve. Hoover was sent under the guise of a National Relief Fund program to feed the war orphans in Belgium. After trading 200,000 slaves from the Kaiping copper mines in China to the Congo for Franqui, Hoover was deemed the perfect humanitarian for just such an occasion. Instead of helping orphans however, he used US taxpayer funds to provide relief to German army by shipping food and supplies because they were losing interest in war and could no longer afford it (Mullins 1991). Levying war against the several States and providing aid and comfort to the enemy is clearly an act of treason according to Article III Sec. 3 of the US Constitution. By feeding the German army in WW I, Hoover committed treason.
After the war, a League of Nations was proposed by Woodrow Wilson; however, the US Senate blocked America’s entry. In the interim between the world wars, an American branch of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) was incorporated in 1921 and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) was born. Their mission was to incrementally change the political atmosphere in favor of the internationalists (Perloff, 1988). Out of the CFR’s “Informal Agenda Group” The United Nations would ultimately be formed after World War II by the Rockefellers at the Presidio Naval Shipyard in 1945 (Jones, 2006), not by nations tired of war (Perloff 2009).
Also, between the wars was the German consortium IG Farben. Germany made a determination that one of the reasons they lost the war was because they ran out of gas. Since Germany was rich in coal, IG Farben developed a process called hydrogenation that converted up to fifty percent of the weight of coal into fuel. They used this technology as leverage to convince the Rockefeller’s to let them merge with Standard Oil. Ultimately merging with over 2000 companies through the United States and ninety three countries, the agreement was to allow all joint oil exploration outside of Germany be led by the US, and all joint ventures for petrochemical pharmaceuticals be led by Germany and Professor Bayer from Bayer Pharmaceuticals, a founding member of IG Farben (Griffin 1975).
The German war machine of the next World War would be fueled almost entirely from oil that was converted from coal. The oil was good for German panzers manufactured by Ford and for warships; however, it was too crude for the Luftwaffe, Germany’s air force, and the planes had to be supplemented with an additive from Standard Oil in the US. While the German word Farben is benign, meaning dye-stuffs, a tribute to the company’s origin, the use of IG stands for Interessengemeinschaft, meaning “Community of Interest,” or in plain English, a cartel (Griffin, 1975).
While the CFR and IG Farben were moving forward with their international agenda between the world wars, other factions of elitists in the US, more nationalist in nature, believed that brute force was a superior method for implementation of their plans and accelerated their plans. Brigadier General Smedley Darlington Butler testified in Congress to the McCormack/ Dickstein Committee on Un-American Activities from 1934-1935 about a fascist plot by the American Nazi Party to assassinate President Franklin D. Roosevelt and an attempt to takeover of the federal government. He implicated members of Citibank, the DuPont’s, and Remington Firearms (Parfrey, 2003).
By blowing the whistle, two time Medal of Honor recipient Smedley Butler, affectionately known as “Old Gimlet Eye” to his marines, had single-handedly stopped the Nazi takeover of America. Time Magazine, controlled by banker JP Morgan, lambasted Butler in an article titled “A plot without plotters” (Parfrey, 2003). Although the committee did agree with Butler, they did not release their findings to the public at the time (McCormack). In his timeless classic War is a Racket, Butler lays out the horrors of war while explaining who makes the profits and who pays the bills. The thirty three year veteran acknowledged being a “high class muscle man for big business,” adding, “profits are measured in dollars and losses are measured in lives” (Butler 1935).
Another example of war as a racket for big business transpired shortly after the US involvement in the Korea under UN direction. In 1954, the Central American multinational United Fruit Company had a big problem. Jacobo Arbenz came to power in Guatemala. He campaigned on a land reform bill to combat a seventy percent ownership of land by only three percent of the people. In order to prevent disruption of their monopoly, they colluded with the CIA to launch a public relations campaign against Arbenz. Despite Guatemala having no official diplomatic relations with the USSR and no Russian Embassy, accusations of Guatemala as Soviet satellite were enough to justify US pilots bombing Guatemala City and overthrowing Arbenz (Perkins, 2004).
Meanwhile in that same year, across the Atlantic, another internationalist event that would shape the economic and political direction of America was taking place. Much like the 1773 meeting between the Rothschild and European captains of industry, and the Jekyll Island meeting in 1910, the Bilderberg Group met in secret to combine over 120 of the world’s most influential multinational corporations, heads of state, bankers, consulting firms, and media moguls, to come to a consensus and make public policy, while behind closed doors. The elitist confab had been meeting under a total media blackout since 1954 (Jones 2006). This already violates the laws of several nations including the United States such as the Logan Act. This law is found in Title 18 in US Code of Federal Regulations, Sec 593. Because of the corruption that it breeds, all public officials who attend are guilty of felony crimes and can be punished with three years of incarceration.
As a result of the more overt and aggressive international policies, the late 1950’s through the 1960’s, experienced a more galvanized public resistance to internationalist corporate shenanigans and their interlocking globalist bureaucracies. In 1962, the American Legion passed a resolution condemning the CFR. The daughter of the American Revolution petitioned Congress to investigate them. The Goldwater movement, which was to restore the GOP to its roots, and the newly formed John Birch Society rose in strong opposition to the globalists and CFR (Perloff, 1988).
Even with pushback from these highly motivated groups and others, most people were still in the dark. This allowed corporate agents like John Perkins to move across the world and shakedown nations for trillions of dollars in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Recruited by the National Security Agency to be the Chief Economist for the Boston based Charles T. Main Inc., corporate skullduggery was the name of the game. To justify massive World Bank loans to developing countries, he produced an exaggerated false economic prospectus for infrastructure projects and skillfully sold it to his critics. After the loans were approved, contractors from outside the host nation would pour in to start massive water and power construction (Perkins, 2004).
The indigenous people did not benefit as a whole because no new jobs were created for them and they could not afford the services rendered if the projects were finished. By the time the bill came due for the interest on the loans, the leaders had been replaced. The pound of flesh required by these corporations, like Main, Bechtel, and Halliburton, would be to tax the people into submission and strip the land of coveted natural resources. Additionally, these developing nations would have to support US foreign policies and military presence. If a leader of a nation did not get with the corporate program, the “jackals” were right behind him to mop up. Jaime Roldos of Ecuador and Omar Torrijos of Panama were examples. If the leaders were too heavily guarded, or the CIA installed replacements developed hubris of their own then justification for military intervention of that nation would be waiting (Perkins, 2004).
Perkins, who coined the word “Corporatocracy” (Irvine, 2014), lays out how international corporations dominate the majority of the world’s nations in his New York Times bestselling autobiographical novel, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. A good Illustration of this concept from the time period was the film, Network. “There is no America. There is no democracy. There is only IBM and ITT and AT&T” the antagonist shares his vision with newscaster Mr. Beale. “One vast and ecumenical holding,” he describes, “in which all men will share a common stock” (Lumet, 1976).
The omnipresence of industry and arms merging with government was a key point in President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s 1961 farewell address. “In the counsels of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought the by the military industrial complex.” Eisenhower continued, “The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and persists.”
In a speech to the American Newspaper Publishers Association three months later, President John F. Kennedy also warned of a “vast and monolithic conspiracy” and added “The word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society.” Kennedy himself resisted the Federal Reserve by issuing Executive Order 11110, which introduced billions of dollars of silver and silver certificates into circulation, as competing currency against Federal Reserve Notes. He resisted the CIA when he fired its director, Allen Dulles, in the wake of the “Bay of Pigs” disaster. He resisted the CFR when he fired his Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Lyman L. Limnitzer, for the proposing terrorists against Americans as a pretext for war with Cuba in the declassified Northwoods Document. Kennedy opposed the military industrial complex by ordering all troops out of Vietnam by 1965 in National Security Action Memorandum (NSAM) 263.
Kennedy was publicly executed and his direction was subsequently reversed. Since then, the CFR has been that driving force of influence and misplaced power for decades in both the Democrat and Republican parties. Every Secretary of Defense, over forty United States UN ambassadors, many dominant news media figures, and every member of every presidential cabinet from that day in 1963 have been CFR (Perloff, 1988), even unto this day (Jones, 2009).
“They [globalists] weren’t able to do this [take over] because they had better products,” explains radio host Alex Jones, in his YouTube video, Full Spectrum Evil: The Secrets of Global Domination, “They were able to do it because they created, through fractional reserve banking here in the US, and similar systems worldwide, unlimited free credit for themselves which they then loan out to you at interest.” Jones includes, “They have the get out of jail free card” (Jones 2011).
This was demonstrated in by Inside Job, which is a documentary film about the sub-prime mortgage crisis and subsequent financial meltdown in 2008, costing investors and taxpayers trillions of dollars. Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the French socialist and Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund in 2007, was asked about the Simon Johnson’s article in The Atlantic magazine. Johnson stated, “The economic and political power of the financial services industry has become so great that the policy-making has become prisoner to the financial oligarchy.” Strauss-Kahn admitted, “That is not wrong,” adding, “I think he puts too much emphasis on this” (Ferguson 2010).
The abuse of economics as a political weapon for corporate control continues. In Foreign Affairs magazine. Shinzo Abe, Japanese Prime Minister from 2006-2007, told Foreign Affairs magazine, the chief publication of CFR’s scholarly white papers, that he was going to use “Abenomics,” his own brand of economics that dumped 100 trillion yen of stimulus onto the Japanese market. “Abenomics” merges “Reaganomics” and “Clintonomics,” as a decisive tool for steering Japan into the international Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) treaty (Rose, 2013).
These endorsements by the Council on Foreign Relations of economic and political activities at home and abroad such as the TTP and the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) have culminated in blowback across the land. At a Conference in Seattle, prolific filmmaker and historian, G. Edward Griffin, described his organization, Freedom-Force International, as the Antithesis to the CFR because it is built on the model of individualism and not collectivism (Griffin, 2010).
TTP and TTIP affect the sovereignty of all nations involved. In America, it is being negotiated in secret. There is no congressional or legislative oversight worldwide for its 30,000 pages. Before being quietly released recently, five out of twenty nine chapters that have been leaked, not only can corporations ignore the laws of all nations altogether if the laws interfere with profits, they can sue governments for losses to their expected future gains through “Investor State Tribunals.” Massive sweeping legislation for, guns, climate, cybersecurity, income, pharmaceutical, vitamins & minerals, surveillance, and copyrights are known to be included. In June, after being denied access by the Obama Administration, Congress abdicated its constitutional oversight powers to give the president unlimited “Fast Track” authority to negotiate the terms with 500 corporate lobbyists in secret, even secret from Congress (McAdoo 2014).
This blatant disregard for transparency and congressional oversight has lit a fire into the online Anti-globalist community worldwide, especially in the United States. No longer are these individuals and groups limited to books, magazines, talk radio, and documentaries. The Anti-globalists have taken up arms on the Internet. Former twelve time Congressman and three time presidential candidate Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty, the Ron Paul Channel, his homeschooling curriculum, and Institute for Peace and Prosperity have resisted globalism with a softer, more palatable tone that is easily digestible to the public.
The fight against globalism in governments, banks, and corporations is not a phenomenon that is mutually exclusive to isolated pockets of a geographical area within the states; it is widespread throughout all regions of America. The John Birch Society operates from Wisconsin, Abbey Martin’s Media Roots Podcast is a spin off from her forceful Breaking the Set show on RT News is in Washington DC. Luke Rudkowski’s We Are Change (WRC) is home-ported in New York and has activists in every state. Mark Dice frequently wreaks havoc with his petitions in San Diego. Storm Clouds Gathering is a popular YouTube channel. The Jacksonville based Radio Show Earth: with Dr. Drake & Dr. Truth, is overtly Anti-New World Order in tone. Caravan to Midnight with John B. Wells and Truthstream Media with Aaron & Melissa Dykes are organizations in Texas, Crossing the Void Radio with Scott Haire is based in Connecticut, Dan Bidondi of the Rhode Island stationed Truth Radio Show single-handedly shut down three FBI conferences about the 2013 Boston bombings with questions about “false flag” operations.
Another prominent figure in the world of resistance is Lew Rockwell, the author of several books including the Economics of Freedom and The Left, The Right, and the State. He is a staunch anti-war, anti-state, “anarcho-capitalist,” and founder of the Ludwig von Mises Institute of Austrian Economic Studies in Auburn, Alabama. The Mises Institute is a central hub for liberty oriented scholars from around the world. Mises.org alone gets over half a million visitors per month. More media savvy activists include Constitutional lawyer Krissanne Hall from the Tallahassee based Krissanne Hall Show, who frequently travels the country on speaking tours. Decorated Marine and author of Freedom Adam Kokesh started out as the host of RT’s Adam vs the Man. Author, actor, wrestler, US Navy Seal, and former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura hosts the hard core anti-establishment Off The Grid. Gerald Celente’s Trends Research Institute is harshly critical of globalist scandals. Joel Skoussen’s World Affairs Brief and Matt Drudge’s Drudge Report are also famous within the Anti-globalist community. These activists also share a common trait; they are primarily non-party affiliated.
Among these individuals and organizations, Alex Jones of Infowars.com is considered by many in Anti-globalist circles to be at the “tip of the spear” in the fight against what global leaders themselves call the “New World Order. Alex Jones’s Infowars.com and PrisonPlanet.tv have risen from a public access radio show in the late 1990’s in Austin, Texas to 9.9 million viewers per month according to Similarweb.com.
These groups have plenty to say about a great deal of issues across the geopolitical spectrum. The UN Global Biodiversity Assessment Agenda 21 is a good example because it has caused alarm in the alternative independent media community. Agenda 21 usurps federal and state authorities and goes directly into local communities. Adrian Whylie, a former Libertarian candidate for governor of Florida, warns of the “Florida Forever” program to confiscate private property under the guise of environmentalism and turning over wetlands to Nestle, a Swiss company, so they can bottle the water and sell it back to us (Irvine 2014). From lauding the virtues of bringing back gladiatorial events in a Hunger Games type of scenario, to cramming people into compact cities, fierce opposition to Agenda 21 is looming, After UN Secretary General Kofi Anon recommended humans eat bugs to save the planet, radio host Alex Jones talked about an anti-human agenda that wants people to live in a 200 square foot apartment and pay $100 for a steak (Jones 2006).
The Globalists can push back too, and play dirty. When the World Trade Organization (WTO) had a meeting in Seattle in 1999, thousands of people who criticized the organization as being a thinly veiled asset collection tool for elitists on the global plantation, showed up to protest. “What do you do when you have an angry crowd with a legitimate gripe? You call in your boys” according to documentary film Police State II: The Takeover. In the film, Anarchists known as the “Black Block,” under Delta Force protection, and a rent free a base of operations across from the Seattle Police station, injected themselves into the crowd of legitimate protesters. After hours of destructive behavior against the will of the majority, they created the pretext for the police to crack down on the entire crowd, beating and arresting them indiscriminately. The First Amendment was suspended, martial law was in effect, and sixty percent of the city was shut down while WTO meeting continued unabated. Anyone so much as wearing an Anti-WTO pin in downtown Seattle was arrested at the checkpoint (Jones 2001).
The advent of this internet activism has led to a mass awakening and also resulted in the establishment globalists counter-responding in other, more positive ways after decades of press and media denial and blackout, the Bilderberg Group now has an official website. Sometimes, even Congress responds, Rep Mike Rogers has even introduced HR 1205, the “American Sovereignty Restoration Act” to permanently end US membership in the United Nations (American 2015).
“Monopoly needs government,” G. Edward Griffin best explains while unmasking the paradox of the rich socialist: “The biggest industries today, the multinationals, are not interested so much in efficiency in production or competition in price or product level. They are competing at the government level,” adding, “so they can use the power structure of government to eliminate or hinder their competition” (Griffin 1975).
The progress that capitalism and corporate profits bring can certainly empower humanity or it can be an incredible engine for global tyranny. What will we choose for the future of international business? Competitive goods and services or coercion? The consequences of inaction to the future of humanity can be severe. The battle rages on. What else can be done? Be Vigilant, conduct your own research, vote with your dollars, and be prepared.
Frederick Douglass stated, “A man’s liberties rest in three boxes, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.”
