The theme of this month’s magazine is to expose the “puppet masters”. I find it strange that I knew exactly what I was being asked to write about, even though most of the Internet references pointed to a science fiction novel about aliens attacking the earth. Although “puppet master” hasn’t earned an official place in our lexicon, many people wonder whether the growing political and economic unrest in this country is the result of a covert plan devised by a small cabal of rich men intent on controlling the entire world.
As bizzare as that must sound to those who have never considered the possibility, it is human nature to influence the circumstances in our own favor whenever possible. Taking the last cookie before anyone else demonstrates this simple principle. The greater the advantage over others, the more likely it is that force or fraud will be used to create the desired outcome.
During the convention in Philadelphia where they were writing the Constitution, delegates were divided into two primary factions. Alexander Hamilton wanted a strong, centralized, national govermentment, whereas Thomas Jefferson’s supporters wanted a decentralized federal government comprised of sovereign and independant states. Hamilton knew that the people would never support the consolidation of power he was proposing, so he deliberately misled the public by labeling his supporters “Federalists” while simultaneously casting serious doubt on Jefferson’s supporters by calling them “Anti-Federalists”. So before our Constitution was even written our politicians were already lying to us.
Some will argue that Hamilton is only guilty of clever politics, however we have conclusive evidence that “puppet masters” were responsible for forcing the passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 while nearly all of the members of Congress were at home with their families during the Christmas holiday. (I strongly urge you to read “Creature from Jekyll Island” if you haven’t already.) The Constitution grants Congress the privilege and responsibility to “coin money and regulate the value thereof”. It certainly does not give Congress the authority to print worthless, fiat, paper money, nor does it give them the authority to transfer this power to a privately owned company. Common sense will also show that Congress cannot delegate a power that it doesn’t have itself. The only way to enact such blatantly unconstitutional legislation is to “work behind the scenes” so no one will notice the crime. If it is human nature to commit a crime, it is often a human reflex to confess to, or brag about commiting the crime.
Woodrow Wilson supposedly confessed, “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country.” “[The United States is] no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men”.
In his 1935 autobiography, Frank A. Vanderlip, one of the members the secret Jekyll Island meeting, bragged “I was as secretive, indeed I was a furtive as any conspirator. Discovery, we knew, simply must not happen, or else all our time and effort would have been wasted. If it were exposed that our particular group [of wealthy bankers] had got together and written a banking bill, that bill would have no chance whatever of passage by Congress.”
Clearly there were and are powerful people unethically influencing the legislation being passed by Congress. Everybody knows that the recent multi-billion dollar bailout will do nothing to protect “Main Street” and instead will certainly line the pockets of “Wall Street”.
As President Eisenhower was leaving office he cautioned us to be wary of “puppet masters”, though he didn’t use that phrase. “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarrented influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disasterous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” “The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.” Our protracted and undeclared war in Vietnam continued to make huge profits for those involved in the arms industry. Today Haliburton and Blackwater are companies that will continue to make huge fortunes as long as the American military continues its involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Cecil Rhodes wanted the British Empire to literally dominate the world. He arrogantly states in his last will, “I contend that we [British] are the finest race in the world and that the more of the world we inhabit the better it is for the human race.” He used his vast wealth to create the Rhodes Scholarship because he wanted “to breed an American elite of philosopher-kings who would have the United States rejoin the British Empire.”
The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is another group of wealthy and unelected individuals who exert undo influence on our governmental process. This is why I always stress the difference between “Rights .vs. Privileges” and focus on individualism over collectivism. Without this knowledge the CFR appears to be simply a gathering of political activists. If that is your view, then you may be shocked by this 1991 quote from David Rockefeller who is a prominent member of the CFR.
“It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But now the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supra national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely prefereable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
Prefereable to WHOM?! Only the “intellectual elite” and world bankers who are slowly but surely manipulating us by manipulating our economy. It is time for us to recognize our Congress as the Pinochio that it is. Only dedicated activism on our part will force them to stop lying to us, and cut the strings to the puppet masters that are making them dance in the direction of socialism.
