The purpose of this book is to present, by direct quotations, the
views of the leading figures in the Council on Foreign Relations
and how such views are now affecting the Foreign Policy of the
United States.

The authors believe that the policies advocated by the Council
on Foreign Relations, and being carried out by CFR members in
high positions in the Government, are not in the best interests of
this nation.

However, it should be remembered that the Council on Foreign
Relations is composed of 1400 members, persons of high promi-
nence in industry, education and communications . The authors do
not mean to imply that the foreign policy views of the CFR are
shared by all 1400 of its members .

Unfortunately, there have been instances when, for example, a busy
industrialist will join an organization or permit his name to be used
without first fully investigating the aims and purposes of such an or-
ganization .

Perhaps after reading the documented material contained in this
book some members of the Council on Foreign Relations, who do not
agree with the national-sovereignty-destroying aims of the CFR may
wish to conduct their own investigation .

An extensively documented book such as this would never have
been possible without the assistance of a number of persons who
furnished vital pieces of information enabling the authors to fit all
the pieces-of-the-puzzle into one entity .

Our most sincere thanks to : Mary Helen Brengel,
Assistant Editor of THE INDEPENDENT AMERICAN, for the use of her copies of Senate and House Investigating Committee reports of years past, some of which are now out of print ; also for her locating, so that we could purchase, a complete set of Appendix IX, now out of print, which gives a voluminous list- ing of persons with Communist-front citations . (See Appendix II of this book as to how we utilized these governmental citations) .

In addition, Mrs . Brengel worked closely with the authors in every phase of the writing of this book, offering invaluable assistance .
Helen P . Lasell, Chairman, The United States Flag Committee, for photostatic copies of a number of documents regarding The Council on Foreign Relations,
Florence Fowler Lyons, for her documented newspaper columns showing the tie-in between the tax-free foundations and the One Worlders ; also for her guidance as to where to obtain certain in- formation which was necessary to complete our documentation prov- ing the ultimate aims of the Council on Foreign Relations .

The Staff of THE INDEPENDENT AMERICAN Newspaper, as well as our printing shop, without whose patience, loyalty and enthusiasm this book could never have been written .


On October 18, 1961, the NEWS &COURIER, of Charleston, South
Carolina, stated in an editorial :
To understand the United States today it is necessary to know
something about the Establishment. . . . Most citizens don't rea-
lize it exists, yet the Establishment makes its influence felt from
the President's Cabinet to the professional life of a young college
teacher who wants to obtain a foundation grant for research . It
affects the nation's policies in almost every area . . . . The Estab-
lishment is a general term for those people in finance, business,
and the professions, largely from the Northeast, who hold the prin-
cipal measure of power and influence in this country irrespective
of what administration occupies the White House .

The syndicated columnist, Edith Kermit Roosevelt described the
policies of the Establishment as follows :
What is the Establishment's viewpoint? Through the Roosevelt,
Truman, Eisenhower, and Kennedy Administrations, its ideology is
constant : that the best way to fight Communism is by a One-
World, Socialist State governed by "experts" like themselves . The
result has been policies which favor the growth of the super-state,
gradual surrender of U .S . sovereignty to the United Nations, and a
steady retreat in the face of Communist aggression .

On February 23, 1954, Senator William Jenner stated:
Today the path to total dictatorship in the United States can be
laid by strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by the Congress,
the President, or the people . . . . Outwardly we have a Constitu-
tional government . We have operating WITHIN our government and
political system, ANOTHER body representing another form of
government, a bureaucratic elite which believes our Constitution
is outmoded and is sure that it is the winning side . . . . All the
strange developments in foreign policy agreements may be traced
to this group who are going to make us over to suit their pleasure
We must consider our danger not only in the terms of the treaties
or agreements which have been completed, but in terms of those
still in the pipelines, or already in effect, but still invisible to
Congress or to the people . . . . This political action group has its
own local political support organizations, its own pressure groups,
its own vested interests, its foothold within our government, and
its own propaganda apparatus . . . . Someone, somewhere, con-
ceived the brilliant strategy of revolution by the assembly line
The pattern for total revolution was divided into separate parts,
each of them as innocent, safe, and familiar-looking as possible

In an article appearing in the May, 1962, issue of ESQUIRE, en-
titled "The American Establishment," Richard H . Rovere states :
It is interesting to observe the workings of the Establishment in
presidential politics . As I have pointed out, it rarely fails to get
one of its members, or at least one of its allies, into the White
House . In fact, it generally is able to see to it that both nominees
are men acceptable to it . Mr . Rovere was apparently echoing a similar statement made by Senator William E . Jenner in February, 1956, when Jenner stated
Every president since 1933 has been the captive of the govern-
mental elite . The domestic policy of the Establishment is the ultimate social-
ization of the United States, with its resultant destruction of the U .S .

Constitution and its guarantees of individual liberty and freedom .
High in the ranks of Establishment members is Arthur M . Schles-
inger, Jr ., former professor of history at Harvard University, now
a special assistant to President John F .Kennedy .

In a periodical entitled PARTISAN REVIEW, dated May-June, 1947,
there appears an article by Arthur M, Schlesinger, Jr . In describing
the PARTISAN REVIEW, Congressman John Rousselot of California
stated that it "is actually read only by professional intellectual So-
cialists of all shades, from the out-and-out pro-Communist to the
Fabian-Keynesian Socialist . . . . It is almost unknown outside the pro-
fessional Leftist group . They use it to inform each other of their
plans and projects ."

Congressman Rousselot then inserted into the CONGRESSIONAL
RECORD of September 26, 1961, an article written in 1947 by Schles-
inger, which Mr . Rousselot termed "a blueprint of the plan for turn-
ing the people of the United States over to a monolithic Socialist-
Fascist-Marxist type of tyranny,"
Below are only a few excerpts from the Schlesinger article of 1947
which clearly reflect the thinking of the man who today holds the po-
sition of Special Advisor to President Kennedy .
Socialism appears quite practicable . . . as a long-term propo-
sition .

Its gradual advance might well preserve order and law,
keep enough internal checks and discontinuities to guarantee a
measure of freedom, and evolve new and real forms for the ex-
pression of democracy . The active agents in effecting the trans-
ition will probably be, not the working class, but some combination
of lawyers, business and labor managers, politicians, and intellec-
tuals, in the manner of the first New Deal, or of the Labor Govern-
ment in Britain .

Discussing how the Socialists intend to takeover the United States,
Schlesinger, in the same article, stated : If Socialism
(i .e ., the ownership by the State of all significant
means of production) is to preserve democracy, it must be brought
about step by step, in a way which will not disrupt the fabric of
custom, law, and mutual confidence . . . That is, the transition must
be piecemeal ; it must be parliamentary ; it must respect civil li-
berties and due process of law . Socialism by such means used to
seem fantastic to the hard-eyed melodramatists of the Leninist
persuasion ; but even Stalin is reported to have told Harold Laski
recently that it might be possible .

Mr . Schlesinger's concern regarding legalities is ominously re-
miniscent of Hitler's regard for "legalities" as he took over Ger-
many in the '30s . In this connection it is also noteworthy that the
1961 edition of Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary defines Hitler's
National Socialism as "the body of political and economic doctrines
held and put into effect by the National Socialist German Workers'
Party in the Third German Reich, including the totalitarian principle
of government and state control of all industry .
. . ."


(1) What "fronts" are used by the Establishment to carry out its
goals of turning the United States into a Socialist state, and sub-
jecting the United States to the control of a Socialist world order?

(2) Who are the individuals carrying out the Establishment's pro-
grams ?

(3) Who finances the activities of the Establishment?

(4) How have members of the Establishment infiltrated key policy
positions of the U .S . Government?

The purpose of this book is to give documented answers to the
above questions . In addition we will show the giant interlock between :

(a) The Foreign Aid program

(b) The Foreign Trade program

(c) The Common Market program

(d) Organizations promoting various stages of World Government
(under which the U .S . would lose its national sovereignty)

All of the Establishment's anti-American plans, proposals and
programs can be defeated if the American people are informed and
aware of this threat to the survival of this nation as a Constitution-
al Republic .



WHO and WHAT is behind it all ? : >

The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehavior acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
