The Council on Foreign Relations
Published: The Jeremiah Project
The Council on Foregin Relations was founded on July 29, 1921 in New York City by Col. Edward Madell House, chief adviser to President Woodrow Wilson in league with the same stockholders of The Federal Reserve. Through its membership, meetings, and studies, it has been called the most powerful agent of United States foreign policy outside the State Department.
The CFR is a serpentine network of international revolutionaries and fascist ideologues whose goal is to end American sovereignty and bring about a global, Marxist paradise. House, a socialist, wrote in his book, Philip Dru: Administrator, that he was working for “Socialism as dreamed of by Karl Marx.” He told of a “conspiracy” which would gain control of both political parties, and use them as instruments in the creation of a socialist world government. (John McManus, The Insiders, pg. 7.)
The founders included many of those who had been at the signing of the Treaty of Versailles after World War I, including Colonel Edward House and Walter Lippmann. Finances for the CFR came from the same players that set up the Federal Reserve System in America: J.P. Morgan; John D. Rockefeller; Bernard Baruch; Paul Warburg; Otto Kahn; and Jacob Schiff.
The roster of CFR members is thoroughly impressive – so are the power groups who have representatives in it. Its current membership, all 2905 of them, is like reading a “who’s who” of the elite politicians, media, financiers, businessmen, and educators. From the CFR comes 90% of the people in the State Department and key positions in the Executive Branch.
International banking organizations that currently have men in the CFR include Kuhn, Loeb & Co; Lazard Freres (directly affiliated with Rothschild); Dillon Read; Lehman Bros.; Goldman, Sachs; Chase Manhattan Bank; Morgan Guaranty Bank; Brown Bors. Harriman; First National City Bank; Chemical Bank & Trust; and Manufacturers Hanover Trust Bank. The CFR is totally interlocked with the major foundations (Rockefeller, Ford, Carnegie) and the so-called think tanks (Rand, Hudson Institute, Brookings Institute). The left has been systematically infiltrating wealthy and powerful tax-free foundations and government agencies where taxpayers’ funds would begin to pour out to support the liberal agenda at home and abroad.

The CFR’s Study No. 7, published November 25, 1959, openly declared its true purpose: “…building a New International Order [which] must be responsive to world aspirations for peace, [and] for social and economic change…an international order
...including states labeling themselves as 'Socialist.'" One could safely say that a nutshell descriptor of the CFR is "to bring about a New World Order through the manipulation of U.S. foreign policy and relations and through international economic interdependence."
The CFR's Annual Report in 1974 says the project for the CFR in the '80's will be "The management of the International economy, global poverty, environment and the new "common"... the oceans, the seabeds, and space, and interstate violence, including arms control. What they are saying is "The management of your money, your land, your groceries, and your guns."
In 1975, the Rockefeller Foundation Report discusses the "Interdependece" of the countries of the world on each other. That we are of one world and shall become a nation state world under one government. They also say, we must reach a zero state population growth. The Rockefeller Foundation stated that they have in excess of 747 million dollars to achieve this with.
