It wasn’t too long ago that any utterance of the “CFR” or the “Council of Foreign Relations” would be met by whispers of: “oh, you’re a conspiracy nut…the CFR doesn’t exist…sure, there is a CFR but they don’t have any influence.”
To that, I still respond: “wrong, wrong, wrong!”
May I present some evidence for you to ponder:
“We shall have world government whether or not you like it, by conquest or consent.” Statement by Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member James Warburg to The Senate Foreign Relations Committee on February 17th, 1950
“The New World Order will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down…but in the end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old fashioned frontal assault.” CFR member Richard Gardner, writing in the April 1974 issue of the CFR’s journal, Foreign Affairs.
So, whether we like it or not, the CFR’s stated goal is to usher in a New World Order. It doesn’t matter what you say or what you believe. No unalienable rights from God. Just alienable laws from unelected world bureaucrats hell-bent on destroying sovereignty, liberty, and freedom.
Now, let’s address the argument that the CFR is just a “think tank”. “The CFR really doesn’t have any influence. There is no way they can dictate foreign policy.”
Really? Let’s see what Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says about the CFR’s influence on the United States’ foreign policy:
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: “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 that I won’t have far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future.”
So, if you are at all curious about what the CFR is currently telling our State Department what to do, you need look no further than their latest published article in Foreign Affairs:
Don’t worry about us getting into another devastating war though. The CFR has no influence.
