The Council on Foreign Relations: “We Shall Have One World Government… by Conquest or Consent.”

The Council on Foreign Relations - ''We Shall Have One World Government by Conquest or Consent''

By Joachim Hagopian

New World Order propaganda rules and shapes the world. And there’s no more powerful propagator of propaganda that rules and shapes U.S. global hegemony, world events and major geopolitical developments than the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

On its own website, the CFR describes itself as “an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher.” However, the CFR is financed by the highly endowed, tax exempt Rockefeller, Ford and Carnegie foundations, and since its inception 95 years ago, it has been the most influential force dictating U.S. foreign policy throughout the 20th century (chauvinistically called “the American century”) and right into the present 21st century (aptly called “the New World Order century.”)

Addressing the CFR in 2009, the Bilderberg and CFR member chosen to become America’s next presidential puppet, Hillary Clinton, made no bones about whom she takes her New World Orders from…

“I am delighted to be here in these new headquarters. I have been often to, I guess, the mother ship in New York City, but it’s good to have an outpost of the Council right here down the street from the State Department. We get a lot of advice from the Council, so this will mean I won’t have as far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future”, said Clinton. [source]

From its very outset the CFR, subversively promoting New World Order as the U.S. elite’s most public face, has always maintained one explicit purpose — to bring about a one world government. In 1950, James Warburg, the son of one of the Council on Foreign Relations’ founders, David Warburg, emphatically decreed to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee:

 “We shall have world government whether or not you like it – by conquest or consent.”

In his 1975 book entitled Kissinger on the Couch, powerful CFR insider and former Judge Advocate General of the U.S. Navy, Admiral Chester Ward, wrote about the ultimate aim of the Council on Foreign Relations:

[The CFR has as a goal of] submergence of U.S. sovereignty and national independence into an all-powerful one-world government… This lust to surrender the sovereignty and independence of the United States is pervasive throughout most of its membership… In the entire CFR lexicon, there is no term of revulsion carrying a meaning so deep as ‘America First.’

Nearly all the top military generals (two active members were my West Point roommates) and admirals, major corporate CEO’s and numerous government leaders in all three branches have been circulating through the revolving turnstile, in and out of the public sector as prominent Council on Foreign Relations members. They represent the shadowy government where secrecy rules from behind the scenes. That said, it’s a matter of public record that virtually every U.S. Secretary of Defense has been a CFR life member.

Since 1940 every Secretary of State but one has been on the CFR and/or Trilateral Commission, and a majority of Secretaries of Treasury as well. Multiple CIA directors have been in the CFR. For eight decades nearly every key National Security and Foreign Policy Advisor were/are members. And of course a significant number of U.S. presidents and VP’s have been CFR members. So, regardless of what party happens to occupy the White House, an intransigent fixture operating at the highest echelons of power in Washington over the last century has been strategically assigned CFR plants.

The Corporate and Media Monopoly

The CFR’s interlocking marriage between the private corporate sector and the public government sector is largely responsible for today’s lop-sided world of harsh gross disparities. As cases in point, the 62 richest people on Earth possess more wealth than the majority of the 7.3 billion humans currently inhabiting the planet. The wealthiest 1% own more than the rest of the world combined and the global inequality gap between the rich and poor is widening at the fastest rate seen since the 19th century.

These alarming facts bear out the result — that the ruling elite owns and controls all the Fortune 500 transnational corporations, through backroom bribery deals owns and controls virtually every national government on Earth, and only six oligarchs own the six top mega-media corporations, and therefore control the outflow of over 90% of the world’s news and information.

Through monopolizing a centralized banking system of debt-based theft and global enslavement, and plundering the Third World for its precious natural resources, the consolidation of power into fewer and fewer hands has eliminated competition in a closed, thoroughly insulated, anything-but-free, now-stagnating global market. As an example, over the last two decades alone, the number of publicly traded companies listed on the U.S. stock exchange has declined by half, from 7,300 to 3,700. With the globalists wielding more power than ever before in human history, their centuries old, long sought-after scheme of a one world government has never been closer at hand.

And the means by which our planetary rulers plan to attain their long prized agenda is through such Rockefeller-Rothschild created entities as the Council on Foreign Relations. Indeed CFR members calling themselves the ‘Informal Agenda Group’ drafted the United Nations proposal that President Roosevelt signed the very next day, establishing the UN as a world governance precursor in 1945.

The CFR’s Public Relations Video

Assembling a diverse all-star cast of CFR members, the Council on Foreign Relations just released a self-serving infomercial video touting the significance and value of its expertise role in solving the complex challenges and problems facing humanity in the 21st century. In under three and a half minutes, multiple soundbites are delivered in rapid fire by strategically anointed elitists hailing from various walks of life, as they pontificate the need for CFR architects to masterfully craft sound U.S. foreign policy recommendations that promote peace, prosperity… and New World Order wisdom.

This A-team of 16 dynamos are perfectly and evenly divided along every demographic – from gender to racial ethnicity to represented industry to religion. This over-the-top, “feel good” commercial showcasing the elite is obviously designed to make us all feel safer trusting their benevolent wisdom. A neatly, fine-tuned grooming of elitism at its public-face best, expounding propaganda that reassures us lowly, uninformed regular folks that the world is in very skilled, capable hands with such intelligent, gifted, well-spoken movers and shakers; that these elitists are in control at the helm, solving all the world’s biggest problems and most pressing issues. In reality, however, the sample of represented powerhouse industries showcased in the video only underscores the far-reaching tentacles of the CFR’s elitist influence and power.

The PR video attempts to pass the CFR off as a benign humanitarian group out to both enlighten and save the world, and its featured CFR cheerleaders claim the organization is unbiased, having no political ideology nor any agenda — all of which is fiction. Ever since 1921 its actions have spoken louder than their favorably biased words.

The fact is the Council on Foreign Relations has been controlling U.S. foreign policy for almost a century, and chief among its most obvious agendas has been building and maintaining the U.S. Empire’s global, uni-polar hegemony and military strength at all costs. Their refusal to share power with Russia and China in a multi-polar world has humanity today teetering on the brink of WWIII, and self-annihilation.

History has also proven that the CFR has long carried an aggressive war agenda responsible for virtually unending U.S. military conflict. As the most warring nation on earth, America has been at war for 93% of its time in existence, killing fellow humans somewhere on the planet. A Gallup poll several years ago showed that the rest of the world views the U.S. as the greatest threat to world peace, in no small measure due to CFR’s role in shaping foreign policy.

And of course, part and parcel of this war agenda is the unprecedented CFR-led buildup of the arms industry and growth of the military industrial complex — which President Eisenhower gravely warned us against, in vain. Enormous defense contractor giants like Lockheed, Raytheon, Boeing and General Electric have been direct fat-cat beneficiaries of the CFR war agenda, making trillions in profit over the years thanks to the mutually self-serving Council on Foreign Relations.

And finally, the most glaring treasonous agenda of all that the Council on Foreign Relations has consistently maintained for near an entire century is the destruction of the United States as an independent, sovereign nation. The CFR has always envisioned and been working persistently towards a totalitarian one world government. Like so much corporate sponsored advertising, this CFR advert features powerful liars once again promising one thing and then betraying their promise by doing another. They clearly state that CFR has no agenda, yet the historical facts prove that the Council on Foreign Relations has always actively maintained the New World Order agenda of a one world government.


The elitist propaganda machine is obviously working overtime, engaged in a thinly veiled political ad campaign, a sleek glossy facelift designed to upgrade its Mr. Burns / David Rockefeller / rule-the-world image by appeasing and trying to win over a riled up American public that is ready to turn on its elite masters. After all, this year U.S. citizens are fast realizing that everything we’ve been taught to believe is fiction, and that in reality, a full blown oligarchy has been masquerading as a (propped up) democracy. Americans are just now starting to realize that the glorious U.S. history taught in our whitewashed schoolbooks has brainwashed multiple generations into wrongly believing America has always been God’s gift and savior to humanity and the world. (Tell that to all the darker skinned peoples around the globe who have been bombed, raped and murdered due to U.S. policy, starting on U.S. soil with the Native Americans and kidnapped African slaves and their descendants…) And the public is just now finally coming to terms with recognizing that the system has been rigged against them for a long time. With Hillary’s criminal exposure, it is now blatantly obvious that presidential elections are rigged, the two-tiered justice system is horrendously in-your-face rigged, the stock market is rigged, and gold prices are rigged.

The dumbed-down education system that extends even to ‘higher learning’ is rigged, having turned generations of college grads into lifetime indentured servants, who are unemployed or working minimum wage jobs. (While college grad wages increased only 1.6% in the last quarter century, the student debt burden has skyrocketed 163.8%.) The U.S. meritocratic work ethic that preaches ‘working hard all your life eventually pays off’ is rigged, because the entire Ponzi-scheme economy has been rigged ever since the 1913 Federal Reserve Act. Placing privatized central banksters in charge of the nation’s money supply, manufacturing paper fiat out of thin air, and charging interests off invisible reserves that don’t even exist, has given the elite unlimited power to infiltrate and hijack our government through organizations like the Federal Reserve and CFR, which have systematically degenerated the once-vibrant U.S. democratic republic into a fascist totalitarian police state on the verge of utter collapse.

The unpredictable and volatile dynamic currently gripping America has made the divided populace ever more agitated, unstable and angry over facing the cold hard reality that the nation so many of us grew up loving has been thoroughly fleeced — destroyed by the treasonous Bush-Clinton-Obama international crime cabal that governs the world, masquerading as legitimate government while employing the same bloody, lawless thuggery as organized crime. Their ruthlessly violent, demonically motivated tactics are one and the same; the only difference is that the ruling elite and their political and corporate puppets have historically enjoyed a deceptive, undeserved legitimacy not afforded the mafia.

Despite what the CFR infomercial claims, history explicitly exposes the Council on Foreign Relations’ real agenda, one world governance — an agenda that is already operating informally, behind the scenes — and the way it has relentlessly pursued that agenda, promoting global scarcity, global overpopulation, global warming, global terrorism, global refugee crises, global war and global economic collapse, all of which have been covertly contrived, manipulated and engineered by the ruling elite.

The elite’s not so secret, final objective of the New World Order is to finalize a cashless, RFID microchipped society under the absolute tyranny and control of an entrenched one world government.

As a war machine maker, the Council on Foreign Relations should remain an enemy to every citizen of the world who values and desires peace and freedom.
