Throughout history there have been those who sought to rule others. There have been Kings, Emperors, Tsars, Pharaohs and other similarly titled rulers. They all had something in common besides their desire to rule; they all claimed a Divine Right to rule. It was a claim to legitimacy that said, quite simply, I am better than my subjects, for I rule by the Right given to me by the Divine Power. Who could contest a decree issued by someone who was appointed by God to rule the Kingdom? It was a clever ruse that worked for centuries to subject the masses. The Magna Carta put a dent in that idea, but it was the American Revolution that really put a spike in the heart of Divine Rule, followed by the French Revolution. It took another Century for the idea of Divine Rule to disappear from most of the world. Most of today’s Kings, Queens and Emperors no longer claim Divine Right to rule, instead substituting Divine Right with the Right of Lineage as their basis for their thrown. Dictators, of course, only claim brute force as their justification for ruling.
The Twentieth Century saw a new twist, substituting a King with “The Party”, as in the Communist Party of China or the Soviet Union. The “Party” ruled in the place of the King. The individual was replaced by a Collective, the Party. Keep that concept of the Collective in mind as we venture further down the rabbit hole.
Here in the US, we have avoided this shift to a Collective rulership, haven’t we? Well, haven’t we? Think again. Our Founding Fathers set up a Democratic Republic, not a democracy. Their vision did not include there being only two political Parties. In fact, some of them warned against political Parties as a danger to the Republic.
George Washington, in his farewell address had the following to say about political parties:
“They serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation, the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties, to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common counsels, and modified by mutual interests.”
How prescient he was, for this is precisely what we see today. We have, at least on the surface, two political parties fighting it out every two or four years. Each party serves its own constituency, or so it seems. Or so it is meant to look. Two ‘collectives’ vying for power. However, it is not two distinct political parties that exist in America. It is merely two branches of the same Collective Tree, one labeled the Republican Party and the other the Democratic Party.
Carroll Quigley was a Professor at Georgetown University. He was also the mentor of Bill Clinton.
In Carroll Quigley’s book Tragedy and Hope, On page 1247, regarding the two-party, Left vs. Right system (or the sham we call “democracy”), he stated:
“The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers.
Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so the the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy.”
Isn’t this a perfect description of what we have today? Was there any real difference between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney? Has there been any real difference between the policies of George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama? I see little. They have all been globalist in nature.
On page 950 of “Tragedy and Hope”, Quigley states:
“There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act.
In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so.
I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years 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.”
Regarding the Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA) and Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), on pages 951-952, Quigley states:
“At the end of the war of 1913 it became clear that the organization of this system had to be greatly extended… The task was entrusted to Lionel Curits who established in England and each dominion a front organization to the existing local Round Table.
This front organization called the Royal Institute of International Affairs, had as its nucleus in each areas the existing submerged Round Table Group. In New York it was known as the Council of Foreign Relations, and was a front for J.P. Morgan & Co.”
Carroll Quigley has also written “The Council of Foreign Relations is the American branch of a society which originated in England… [and] believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established.”
On page 952:
“The New York branch was dominated by the associates of the Morgan Bank. For example, in 1928 the Council of Foreign Relations had John W. Davis as president, Paul Cravanth as vice-president, and a council of thirteen others, which included Owen D, Young, Russell C. Leffingwell, Norman Davis, Allen Dulles, George W. Wickersham, Frank L. Polk, Whitney Shepardson, Isaiah Bowman, Stephen P. Duggan, and Otto Kahn.”
Quigley, on page 324 of “Tragedy and Hope,” states:
“The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, 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 for 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 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.”
I’d like you to reread the following, “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.” Quigley, who mentored Bill Clinton, and nominated him as a Rhodes Scholar, believed in the aims of this secret group.
Tragedy and Hope was published in 1966. If you do a little investigation, you will see how powerful the American branch of this secret society, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), has become. Look at the membership rolls of the CFR both past and present, and you will find Presidents, Senators, Congressman, Secretaries of State and Defense, from both political parties. Supreme Court Justices, too. You will find media owners and personalities are, and have been, members. Powerful bankers and businessmen have regularly been members. The membership of the CFR is a veritable Who’s Who of politics, banking, the media and industry. Isn’t this what the founders of the Round Table dreamed of?
Getting back to our original idea, it is not a Divine Right Rule of the monarchs that we have today. No, it is the Divine Right Rule by the self-appointed Oligarchy composed of bankers, businessmen, media moguls and the Intelligentsia. The “Collective” of the CFR runs America. They feel they are special and therefore are entitled to rule. They follow the belief in The Republic, that Plato wrote about, a Republic of the Intelligentsia, of the philosopher Kings. The Utopia Plato speaks of is not for the common man. It is relegated to the Elite. This is the feudal system Quigley mentions. The Republic, as we knew it, is gone. The CFR dominated Oligarchy has no belief in the Constitution we hold dear. As Quigley stated: 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. (Think CFR meetings, Bilderberg meetings, Davos, G8, G20, Doah and Rio meetings.) The Oaths they take to defend it mean nothing to them. The two-party system they control is meaningless to we the people. It makes no difference which party is in power, for they are both controlled by the Oligarchy. When enough people recognize the truth, we can begin to bring back our Republic. When enough people are ready to stand up and say no to the Oligarchs, we can change things. Until that time, we are merely fighting a rear-guard action.
