Obama advocates military strikes on new
middle eastern countries
other more private groups, Obama advocates military strikes on new
middle eastern countries. Obama has aligned himself with several
lobbying firms and nongovernmental organizations who seek further US
militarization of the world. In several speeches and essays, Obama
makes his foreign policy goals clear – and he is not anti-war. Is
Obama intentionally sending a deceptive message to his constituency?

Obama outlines his
ambitious geopolitical plans in a recent essay for Foreign Affairs
magazine. Foreign Affairs is published by the Council on Foreign
Relations, which describes itself as a non-partisan group of which he
is a member. Established in the 1920's and headquartered in New
York, its membership includes prominent politicians and business
elite, including heads of academia and media. The organization seeks
to centralize both political power and market power to craft
legislation outside the checks and balances of democracy. The CFR is
rarely mentioned by the mainstream media, making it difficult to
fully gauge its influence. When it is mentioned in the press, it is
likely whitewashed as trivial or irrelevant. Notable members of the
CFR include:

Dick Cheney

John Kerry

Bill Clinton

Al Gore

Ronald Reagan

George H. W. Bush

Gerald Ford

Richard Nixon

John, David &
Nelson Rockefeller

Condolezza Rice

Paul Wolfowitz

Alan Greenspan

Colon Powell

Henry Kissinger

Angelina Jolie
(Yes, the actress has a five year term membership as an

Its membership list
is a who's who of Washington and Wall St. elite going back nearly a
century. It should not be surprising that most presidential
candidates in the 2008 election are CFR members. Candidates do not
advertise their CFR membership to the public. They pose as
“liberals” and “conservatives” to control all aspects of the
debate. The CFR has stacked the deck for the 2008 election with
several members in the race from both sides of the isle:

Democrat CFR

Barack Obama

Hillary Clinton

John Edwards

Chris Dodd

Bill Richardson

Republican CFR

Mitt Romney

Rudy Giuliani

John McCain

Fred Thompson

Newt Gingrich

The mainstream
media's self-proclaimed “top tier” candidates are united in their
CFR membership, while an unwitting public perceives political
diversity. The unwitting public has been conditioned to
instinctively deny such a mass deception could ever be hidden in
plain view. Presidential Candidate & Congressman Ron Paul is
the only “top tier” candidate who is not a member of the CFR.

Although many
politicians hold membership, It must be noted that the Council on
Foreign Relations is a non-governmental organization. The CFR's
membership is a union of politicians, bankers, and scholars, with
several large businesses holding additional corporate memberships.
Corporate members include:

Halliburton of

British Petroleum

Dutch Royal Shell

Exxon Mobile

General Electric


Lockheed Martin


News Corp (FOX)



Time Warner

JP Morgan/ Chase

& several other
major financial institutions

Members are united
in their interventionist intentions with the goal of a consolidated
global governance. The CFR's mission is to influence policy through
the reach of its members and publications. Those who study the CFR
ideology are recruited and cultured for membership. The best and
brightest university students are taught to propagate the CFR model.
Individuals who both subscribe to the CFR ideology and can bring an
element of capital (political status, business influence, money) to
the group will be given membership. Members meet at the CFR
headquarters in Manhattan and Washington DC, and round-table style
discussions are held for its membership to discuss foreign affairs
and make recommendations on policy. The CFR often creates “task
forces” to report “findings and policy prescriptions” (
for specific current world events, and also publishes the periodical
Foreign Affairs magazine. CFR authors are often found in mainstream
media publications. In a recent issue of TIME magazine, one CFR
member writes: “The US should make (Pakistani President & US
intelligence asset) Musharraf the best dictator he can be”.
Another author, this time in Newsweek magazine objectively argues to
the readers that the world really isn't all that bad in an article
titled “Don't Worry, Be Happy”. Currently, the front page of features essays on European anti-terrorism measures, radical
Iranians, and the reemergence of the nuclear threat (CFR members in
government control the nuclear football). Many prominent
publications are influenced and controlled by the CFR:



US News & World

Atlantic Monthly


& several major
publishing houses

Members of the CFR
in the media intend to inject it's pro-globalist arguments into the
mainstream consciousness. Although the CFR is self-described as a
non-partisan association, it unabashedly promotes a
one-world-government agenda without regard for US sovereignty or the
desires of the American people.

The goals of the
CFR is best described by its very own members. Bill Clinton's
Georgetown mentor and CFR member Carroll Quigley states: “The
Council on Foreign Relations is the American branch of a society
which originated in England... (and) ...believes national boundaries
should be obliterated and one world rule established.”. Quigley
differs from many of his CFR colleagues in that he believes their
plan for a new world order should be more publicly disclosed. In his
book Tragedy and Hope, Quigley concedes he is unique among his peers
in that he believes the new world order plan of global government's
“role in history is significant enough to be known”. Quigley
also admits that the two-party system allows for both groups to be
controlled at the highest level but operate like bitter rivals. As
Quigley says, this gives the voters the chance to “throw the
rascals out at any election without leading to any profound of
extreme shifts in policy.”. Controlling Washington elite allowed
private central banks to “dominate the political system... ...and
economy of world as a whole” and implement a new system of
“feudalist fashion” through “secret agreements”. Although he
believes the CFR's intentions should be more public, Quigley
understands the average person doesn't understand feudalism or
serfdom and will never read his book.

Surprisingly, many
of its own members admit the CFR goal is to subvert the democratic
process. CFR member and Judge Advocate General of the US Navy
Admiral Chester Ward writes “The main purpose of the (CFR) is
promoting the disarmament of US sovereignty and national dependence
and submergence into and all powerful, one world government.”.
This high ranking military officer went on to explain their
procedures for influencing policy, claiming: “Once the ruling
members of the CFR shadow government have decided that the US
government should adopt a particular policy, the very substantial
research facilities of the CFR are put to work to develop arguments,
intellectual and emotional, to support the new policy and to confound
and discredit, intellectually and politically, any opposition.”.

The CFR's strategy
is also being used to promote world government as well as the new
environmental agenda. Obama and most candidates have made the
environment a major issue in the policy. The CFR has long suggested
a global tax, specifically identifying the environmental movement as
a means for its advancement. All CFR candidates align themselves
with the position that the government has both the ability and
responsibility to maintain the world's environment. Good intentioned
individuals may genuinely seek environmental protection, but
nongovernmental organizations are quickly capitalizing on land
acquisitions and taxes in the name of global warming. While most
scientist agree the planet earth is undergoing a degree of climactic
change, the CFR admits the environmental argument will be used to
erode national sovereignty and build up their global authority.
Proposed “Carbon Taxes” place carbon expenditure ratings on
mundane human activities. Contrary to popular misconceptions, CO2
is by no means a pollutant. As an essential gas for life, plants
thrive on increased levels of CO2 which in turn they produce higher
levels of oxygen. Furthermore, carbon based life forms emit carbon
to the atmosphere, hence a “Carbon Tax” is a tariff for doing
nothing but maintaining life. A popular movement lead by the CFR's
own Al Gore would have you believe CO2 is the root cause of
environmental woes while ignoring real industrial pollution in
developing countries. There are serious environmental problems that
are ignored in favor of issues that can be used to tax the broad

protection has already lead countries to willingly surrender control
of natural resources. The US has ceded control of natural resources
to the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural
Organization (UNESCO) in a land grab under the guise of environmental
protection. UNESCO is part of the United Nations, an organization
controlled by many CFR members like permanent US ambassador John
Bolton. The CFR's President Richard N. Haass boldly admits “Some
governments are prepared to give up elements of sovereignty to
address the threat of global climate change.”. He adds that this
“Globalisation thus implies that sovereignty... ...needs to become
weaker.”. While it is important to be conscious of humans' effects
on the earth, nongovernmental organizations like the CFR see an
opportunity to redistribute wealth through selective enforcement
targeting the US. The CFR openly states its intentions of using the
environmental movement and other emotional arguments to build up
global authority and undermine US sovereignty.

The CFR backs other
programs that promote regional governments. Another ambitious goal
of the CFR is the implementation of regional unions under the control
of a central world government. World leaders are moving towards a
regional partnership of North America consisting of Canada, the US,
and Mexico. In 2005, the CFR released a report titled “Building
an American Community” which sought to eliminate borders between
the three North American countries. One part of the plan called for
decreasing government control of cross-border traffic in an effort to
dissolve national borders. Robert Pastor, a vice chairman of the
task force that released “Building a North American Community”,
names the “Amero” as a hypothetical unified North American
currency similar to the Euro. Carried out with precision, the
private, run-for-profit federal reserve bank has massively devalued
the US dollar, allowing foreign corporations to buy up US resources
for literal pennies on the dollar.

The European Union
is a similar model to the North American partnership. The EU was
hugely opposed by Europeans, and took a half century for the
complicit European power elites to fully implement the union.
During his time as Prime Minister, Tony Blair tried several times for
the United Kingdom's adoption of the unpopular EU constitution that
was also staunchly rejected by French and Dutch voters. The current
Prime Minister Gordon Brown continues to advance a similar
constitution under a new name. Like the EU, American countries would
keep their governmental infrastructure but all policy would be
superseded by a regional constitution.

Already in place in
North America is the Security and Prosperity Partnership (
established in a meeting between Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox,
and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin. The SPP consolidates
protection of the North American Union by establishing a security
perimeter extending north of Canada to the Mexican/ Guatemalan
border. This measure was authorized under Bush's ambiguous executive
authority, thus avoiding any congressional input or oversight. It is
a precursor to a trilateral authority between the three North
American economies.

A similar measure
to the SPP in the establishment of a unified North American region is
the NAFTA “Superhighway” which eliminates border restrictions on
shipping, allowing imported goods destined for the US to arrive in
North America at ports in Mexico. Rather than arriving at the port
of Long Beach, imported goods would enter the US via a “port” in
the mid-west that lies along the shipping lane. This measure has
been unanimously opposed by US cities in proximity of the highway,
but the democratic voice is ignored as the government covertly
advances. Congress has largely looked away from the issue. Members
who are aware of this plan avoid this issue and prefer that it stay
secret, and the CFR presidential candidates will not address it. The
presidential candidates' association with the the self-described
“shadow government” compromises the the voting process and
defrauds the constituency.

Barack Obama has
captivated voters from all parties with his refreshing new style of
rhetoric. He has the voting record to back his criticism of the Iraq
war. But like his CFR colleagues, he vows to continue the pursuit of
a shadowy enemy under the vague threat of “terrorism” - a policy
that has cost citizens their personal liberties, trillions in debt
and untold lives. The war on terror has been crafted to spend the
US into bankruptcy and setup a domestic police state. Money
continues to be being printed out of thin air by the private
run-for-profit Federal Reserve, while China remains leveraged with
over $1 trillion in US dollar holdings. In the middle east, the
CFR's blank check for U.S. military operations will deplete U.S.
resources while inciting sectarian strife and anti-U.S. sentiment,
ignoring the history of blowback as documented by the CIA. Obama and
other CFR candidates affiliation with the organization is not
promoted on their websites or in any press releases because the
organization has centralized political power and financial capital to
set policy the public would otherwise oppose. The career
politicians in the CFR know corporate sponsorship is frowned upon by
voters. The Council is one of the major conduits between government
and business leaders in the US. The CFR is guaranteeing power by
owning all the horses in the race that is the 2008 election. Obama
is captivating unlike most of his competition, undoubtedly
intelligent enough to understand his political niche. Another CFR
US president guarantees more of the same costly foreign policy that
protects corporate interests and isolates the US. Like his
colleagues, Barack Obama's stated foreign policy intentions foment
the long term militarization and balkanization of the middle east
while resources will continue to be spent in deficit to finance an
illegal foreign policy. Only when the control of the CFR is fully
exposed will the voters have a real democratic choice.

Hillary's campaigners are using the ol' Rove tactics; accusing the "other" of doing what you are doing yourself.

Obama's most prominent foreign policy advisers are less circumspect: Lawrence Korb, a former assistant secretary of defense from 1981 to 1985, said in an August 29 interview with the Associated Press, "It is essential that the military begin planning for a phased withdrawal from Iraq now so it can be safely completed within 10 to 12 months."

This boils down to who do you believe and more so who do you trust!

Political camps pretending to be arch enemies and vying for the public vote and both will do nothing for the greater good in the end...................But only for themselves!!

Animals could not even begin to be as conniving or devious as man......................

As a child I understood

When are the people in this country going to realize that there is not two parties sitting in Washington DC. There is only one party governing the UNITED STATES and the people that actually govern this country for the most part aren't even citizens of this country. The Bilderbergers run world politics, The FEDERAL RESERVE is the PIGGY BANK from the US to them and makes all of the political and financial decisions of every President that has served since its inception on Dec 23 1913. John F Kennedy was going to disband the Fed and repeal the federal reserve act, OOPS just a coincident he was murdered before that could happen. Bobby who was just as adamant about repealing the Federal Reserve act, OOPS just a coincident he to was murdered. Since then no one but RON PAUL has even talked about repealing the ACT and guess what hes not a member of the CFR. Its always amazed me that we the American people allowed a PRIVATE BANK called the FEDERAL RESERVE to charge 1,000,000,000 for 500 dollars worth of cotton and linen that print into currency and then are charged INTEREST ON THAT MONEY. No the United States has been RUN now for almost 100 years by a few ELITE FAMILIES most of whom are of the NOBILITY of EUROPE and their Cousins by BLOOD here in the STATES. We the tax payers of AMERICA have been forced to pay TRILLIONS of DOLLARS in interest to these very INVISIBLE CRIMINALS at the point of a gun and until we have a very real REVOLUTION and take back our country from these people they are going to continue to run our ECONOMY, our FORIEGN POLICY and every aspect of our lives as they see fit.

Its a DAMN SHAME to know that we DONT HAVE A SAY in who is going to be our next PRESIDENT or even CONGRESSMEN or SENATORS. If these men and women don't pass muster with CFR then they are shunned by their parties and don't receive any money or media exposure {as in the case of DR RON PAUL}. The only time Ron Paul was even mentioned in the media was when they major media outlets whose owners are all part of either CFR or the BILDERBERGERS couldn't hide the fact that he was able to raise so many millions of dollars by his dedicated followers and the extent of the GRASS ROOTS movement to get him elected. The media has purposely not given him any airtime to limit his exposure to the people who could actually get him elected. This election which seems like it has gone on forever is nothing more then a carefully orchestrated illusion that the political process really works. The RIGHT is having JOHN MCCAIN shoved down its throat when clearly this man stands for none of the conservative principles of the PARTY. With John McCain's Hispanic outreach director Juan Hernandez we all know that John has reached a significant deal with this OPEN BORDER LET THEM ALL IN IDIOT {REMEMBER THE MCCAIN / KENNEDY AMNESTY BILL}. One has to ask why would these CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS "Bush and McCain" want to open the borders and give these ILLEGAL ALIIENS AMNESTY. Because it fits into the BILDERBERGERS ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT doctrine to hurry this up in there lifetime. Folks the Presidential, Congressional and Senate elections are manipulated to look as though we have had FAIR elections when that couldn't be further from the truth. The ELECTORIAL COLLEGE system of electing the PRESIDENT should make the LIGHT BULB gone on when a candidate can absolutely win the POPULAR VOTE and then LOSE the ELECTION by the ELECTRIAL COLLEGE. Some one please explain to me how that works. It should tell everyone that the DIEBOLD MACHINES didn't STEAL the elections but was actually STOLEN by a few dozen people that run the WORLD through the BILDERBERGERS. PEOPLE WAKE THE F@#K UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A world government could be a good thing as I see it- It has the porential to facu=ilitate large scale co-operative efforts on schemes advantageous to humanity as well as the opposite. This thing about figureheads may not be true- If it is how come they are disrupting the vote with machines that do not work to count correctly?
If it did not matter who got in they would not be doing this - or so it seems to me.
