Future of the GOP


In light of the this weekend's CPAC straw poll, it appears Romney was the favorite.† Rush Limbaugh spoke at the event, as well as Newt Gingrich.† It appears they are gearing up for a "reenergized" conservative† movement.† This is all thanks to President Obama's leftward lurch in economic policy.

As a life long Republican and one who is dreading the next four (hopefully only four) years with BHO,† the GOP's battlecry rings hollow.† I am all for Constitutional and conservative principles.† President Obama must be checked at all points.

However I feel the Republicans have forfeited the right to carry the title of†the party of conservative economic principles.† Where were these hard core Republicans over the last several years?† Where was the voting bloc of Republicans who stood up to President Bush about the fallacy of cutting taxes and creating a massive new Federal entitlement known as Medicare Part D while fighting a two front war simultaneously!

This forfeiture may only be temporary.† Ron Paul is a definite exception to these complaints.† But my fear is that the GOP botched their resume with their short tenure as the party in power. The US gave the Democrats control of Congress for nearly 40 years.† The Republicans were given 12.† I hope the Democrats don't get another 40.

I have no reason to disbelieve the statement attributed to Joseph Smith by Mosiah Hancock †

"There will be two great political parties in this country. One will be called the Republican, and the other the Democrat party. These two parties will go to war and out of these two parties will spring another party which will be the Independent American Party."†

An Independent American Party exists in the USA today.† See† www.usiap.org
"We solemnly declare that our Constitution, liberties, and national sovereignty currently hang by a thread.† We assert that institutionalized corruption and the loss of our rights and liberties are unconstitutional, unacceptable and inexcusable."


FYI, Mosiah Hancock recorded Joseph Smith as stating further that †"The United States will spend her strength and means warring in foreign lands until other nations will say, "Let's divide up the lands of the United States", then the people of the U. S. will unite and swear by the blood of their fore-fathers, that the land shall not be divided. Then the country will go to war, and they will fight until one half of the U. S. army will give up, and the rest will continue to struggle. They will keep on until they are very ragged and discouraged, and almost ready to give up--when the boys from the mountains will rush forth in time to save the American Army from defeat and ruin. And they will say, 'Brethren, we are glad you have come; give us men, henceforth, who can talk with God'. Then you will have friends, but you will save the country when it's liberty hangs by a hair, as it were"."

The Republican party can only be strong if it stands for what it claims to believe in - limited spending, limited government, and personal freedom. But their actions speak louder than their words. The leaders who call themselves Republicans like big government and big spending.

Not only do the leaders who call themselves Republicans like big government and big spending, but, truth be known, so do most American voters.†

The Republican party has ceased to be conservative because of it's leadership. Until we can get the other conservatives to stop putting them in power our party is dead.

Exactly.† The two great commandments of politics have never changed for either party:

1. Thou shalt get elected.
2. Thou shalt remain elected.

Republicans figure that if they actually stood up and fought for conservative principles, they'd lose.† To the extent they are right, that's our fault.

You just did that. Now we have Obama and the leftists in charge. Do you believe that was a wise move?

And thus my objection to the artificial false dilemma - according to most, you either have to vote for the Republican candidate or the Democratic candidate. Thus, if the Republican party is only fielding liberal republicans as candidates, then that is the choice you have to make if you don't want the even more liberal democratic candidate. Thus, either way we get liberals.
Voting for a party's candidate is approval of that candidate. When you keep voting for increasingly liberal Republican candidates, that doesn't send a message to the party that you're unhappy with their offerings. It sends a message that you approve. If you're unhappy with their offerings, you vote for a more conservative candidate.

I consider McCain more dangerous that Obama.

1.) So-called conservatives are awake and watching what†will be happening†during†a democrat administration instead of ignorantly assuming that with a†professed republican†in the White House†"all is well in Zion".† More constitutionalists will be writing and calling their congressional representatives and senators, for whatever good that will do at this point.† More people will awake to a sense of our awful situation than if a republican were in office.

2. I consider McCain more of an evil person than Obama.† But I'm taking into consideration his dumping his first wife as he did, his activities with the Keating 5 in Arizona, his betrayals of various constitutional principles, his betrayal of MIAs and POWs from the Vietnam War, his globalist ambitions, an dhis disdain for our national sovereignty.††

Both McCain and Obama were well protected by the mainsstream†news media.†

You will recall I warned you of what would happen if we elected Obama. And everything I said is coming to pass, from the devastation of our economy, harming our children and grandchildren, to the naming of Sibelius as Health Commissioner or whatever that office is called--thus opening the door to unfettered abortions--oh, the sky's the limit with what this crew can do. Yes, you can vote for whomever you want. Just know the consequences of this choice.

I suppose you've heard of forgiveness, but I'm not taking it for granted. The Lord said, "I the Lord will forgive whom I will forgive, but of you it is required to forgive all men." Yes, it's a choice between two evils. Name me a perfect person who has ever run for public office. You Constitution Party people are seemingly fond of judging people and finding them evil. McCain of course, was and is far from perfect. But I'll let the Lord decide if he's evil or not. I'll say this, those who allowed this regime to take office are complicit in what's happening IMHO.

Please excuse my harshness. I'm very frustrated with the current edition of the federal government and the effect it's going to have long, long from now. And the saddest part is, I don't think we've even seen much more than the tip of the iceberg.

Smaug, I never doubted your assertion that this would happen if Obama got elected. I think where we differ is on the subject of whether McCain would have been significantly better and/or would he have been a step in reversing the trend.

There is a difference between imperfect and dangerous, and I consider McCain, as well as Obama, and many of those around them, including their puppet masters, extremely dangerous. They truly constitute a "murderous combination". Most of the folks I know personally and many I've spoken with who voted for Constitution Party candidates have acknowledged that danger. These two guys are, IMO, among and led by the element Moroni warned us about in Ether 8: 21-25. They are among and led by those that Apostle Bruce R. McConkie, President Ezra Taft Benson, and Apostle Boyd K. Packer were referring to when they said, respectively, ‚Gadianton robbers fill the judgement seats in many nations. An evil power seeks to overthrow the freedom of all nations and countries.‚; ‚Secret combinations lusting for power, gain, and glory are flourishing. A secret combination that seeks to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries is increasing its evil influence and control over America and the entire world.‚ ; and "We live in a time of war, that spiritual war that will never end. Moroni warned us that the secret combinations begun by Gadianton ‚are had among all people. . . . Wherefore, O ye Gentiles [and the term gentile in that place in the Book of Mormon refers to us in our generation], it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you, that thereby ye may repent of your sins, and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you. . . . Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you."

Even though I sensed these things as far back as 1949-1950 at age 11 or 12, it took me 1/2 my life or more to begin to figure out what was really happening and what was behind it all. If it sounds like conspiracy theory, please consider the source of the above quoted statements. That alone should make it conspiracy fact. I'll not inundate you all with statements to the same effect by congressmen in recent years, and by other men and women who in their ways saw this conspiracy, or at least some aspects of it, and tried to warn us about it. Even though most are no longer alive, their warnings should help us recognize the continuation and seriousness of the conspiracy today. Nor will I bother anybody with statements and boasts made by people who were on the dark side of all this.

Why not? I'd like to see both quotations by those trying to warn us, and those who were on "the dark side", along with the sources. That way I can evaluate things for myself instead of relying on hearsay.

There are and have been a number of LDS Church General Authorities, U.S. congressmen, historians, investigative researchers, and ‚Johnny on the spot‚ people who have observed, experienced and reported events that certainly to me confirm the existence of the conspiracy to destroy the United States of America and merge it into regional and them world government. Just to mention the more significant to me:


Ezra Taft Benson, former Secretary of Agriculture under President Eisenhower, and later an Apostle and finally President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, speaking in a Church General Conference in October 1988: ‚I testify that wickedness is rapidly expanding in every segment of our society. It is more highly organized, more cleverly disguised, and more powerfully promoted than ever before. Secret combinations lusting for power, gain and glory are flourishing. A secret combination that seeks to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations and countries is increasing its evil influence and control over America and the entire world.


As an Apostle, Joseph Fielding Smith wrote in ‚Doctrines of Salvation‚, Vol.3, pp. 314-315: ‚Satan has control now. No matter where you look, he is in control, even in our own land. He is guiding the governments as far as the Lord will permit him. That is why there is so much strife, turmoil, confusion all over the earth. One master mind is governing the nations. It is not the President of the United States...it is not the king or government of England or any other land; it is Satan himself.‚ (Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation, Vol. 3, pp. 314-315)


President J. Ruben Clark, speaking in the October 1949 General Conference, said: Do not think that all these usurpations, intimidations, and impositions are being done to us through inadvertancy or mistake, the whole course is deliberately planned and carried out; its purpose is to destroy the Constitution and our Constitutional government.


Apostle Bruce R. McConkie, speaking in the April 1980 General Conference, stated: Gadianton robbers fill the judgement seats in many nations. An evil power seeks to overthrow the freedom of all nations and countries.


Apostle Boyd K. Packer, speaking in a 16 January 2007 BYU Devotional, stated: ‚We live in a time of war, that spiritual war that will never end. Moroni warned us that the secret combinations begun by Gadianton ‚are had among all people. . . . Wherefore, O ye Gentiles [and the term gentile in that place in the Book of Mormon refers to us in our generation], it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you, that thereby ye may repent of your sins, and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you. . . . Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you. [Ether 8:20, 23‚24]


Because I believe then President Benson, President Clark, Apostle Smith, Apostle McConkie, and Apostle Packer were correct, and I have good reason to believe they were correct, I have to conclude that at least there has been and continues to exist a satanically driven conspiracy to overthrow the freedom of and gain control of all nations. I think that‚s a safe bet. There have been and are today men and women who in their ways saw this conspiracy, or at least some aspects of it, and tried to warn us about it. I‚d like to present what they had to say, even though most are no longer alive. Their warnings should help us recognize the continuation of the conspiracy today.


Gary Allen‚s book "None Dare Call It Conspiracy" was endorsed and publicly recommended by Apostle Ezra Taft Benson in the April 1972 Church Conference. Allen wrote: In a UPI story dated December 27, 1965, Father Pedro Arrupe, head of the Jesuit Order of the Roman Catholic Church, made the following charges during his remarks to the Ecumenical Council: "This...Godless society operates in an extremely efficient manner at least in its higher levels of leadership. It makes use of every possible means at its disposal, be they scientific, technical, social or economic. It follows a perfectly mapped out strategy. It holds almost complete sway in international organizations, in financial circles, in the field of mass communications; press, cinema, radio and television." .


Marilyn Barnewall, wrote for NewsWithViews on 28 November 2008 the following:
‚The Honorable Louis T. McFadden, Congressman from Pennsylvania, leveled charges at the Federal Reserve Board on the floor of Congress that would have made the most aggressive conspiracy theorist blush.
‚McFadden accused the Federal Reserve of swindling the U.S. Treasury, of conspiring with their foreign principals (central banks in other nations) and others to defraud the American government. Thus, the charges I would make against the Federal Reserve in 2008 were first made in 1932 by a U.S. Congressman.
‚As if that were not enough, McFadden further told his compatriots on the House floor that the Fed had ‚‚¶robbed the U.S. government and the people of the United States by their theft and sale of the gold reserves of the U.S.‚
‚On June 10, 1932, Congressman McFadden launched a twenty-five minute tirade against the Fed. Some of his remarks:
‚ Mr. Chairman, we have, in this country, one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a government board, has cheated the government of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt.‚
‚McFadden continued: ‚The depredations and the iniquities of the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal reserve banks acting together have cost this country enough money to pay the national debt several times over.
‚‚This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of the United States; has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Federal Reserve Board, and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.‚‚


U.S. Senator William E. Jenner stated on the Senate floor on 23 February 1954: ‚We have something within our government...representing another form of government...which believes our Constitution is outmoded and is sure that is is the willing 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.‚


President John F. Kennedy, in a speech at Columbia University in 1963, the days before he was assassinated, said: The high office of the president has been used to foment a plot to destroy America's freedom, and before I leave office, I must inform the citizens of their plight.


Congressman John R. Rarick (D-LA), in a 1971 speech on the floor of the House of Representatives, stated: The Council on Foreign Relations...uses individuals and groups...to justify the high level decisions for converting the U.S. from a sovereign Constitutional Republic into a servile member state of a one-world dictatorship.


The late Congressman Larry P. McDonald, while in Congress, reportedly stated: The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining super capitalism and communism under the same tent, all under their control...Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent.


Barry Goldwater, in his book ‚With No Apologies‚ , wrote: Rear Admiral Chester Ward, USN (Ret'd), who was a member of the CFR for sixteen years, has written ‚The most powerful clique in these elitist groups have one objective in common - they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the United States. Their goal is to impose a benign stability on the quarreling family of nations through merger and consolidation. They see the elimination of national boundaries, the suppression of racial and ethnic loyalties as the most expeditious avenue to world peace. Pg. 278


The late Senator Barry Goldwater (R-AZ) was perhaps one of a very few people who understood the goals of the Trilateral Commission when he issued a clear and precise warning in his 1979 book, ‚With No Apologies‚:‚ The Trilateral Commission is international and is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. The Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power - political, monetary, intellectual and ecclesiastical.‚


U.S. Senator Jesse Helms stated in a 1987 speech on the Senate floor: ‚A careful examination of what is happening behind the scenes reveals that all of these interests are working in concert with the masters of the Kremlin in order to create what some refer to as a New World Order...‚


I‚m aware of only one current U.S. congressman who has acknowledged his awareness of a conspiracy to create a one-world dictatorship. Speaking in the House of Representatives 29 April 2003, Congressman Paul stated, as reported on his thelibertycommittee.org web page: ‚...Perhaps it‚s time to stop trying to manipulate the UN, and start asserting our national sovereignty. If we do not, rest assured that the UN will continue to interfere not only in our nation‚s foreign policy matters, but in our domestic policies as well. UN globalists are not satisfied by meddling only in international disputes. They increasingly want to influence our domestic environmental, trade, labor, tax, and gun laws. UN global planners fully intend to expand the organization into a true world government, complete with taxes, courts, and possibly a standing army. This is not an alarmist statement; these goals are readily promoted on the UN‚s own website. UN planners do not care about national sovereignty; in fact they are openly opposed to it. They correctly view it as an obstacle to their plans. They simply aren‚t interested in our Constitution and republican form of government.‚ And at an event near Austin, Texas on August 30th, 2003, Congressman Paul was asked: ‚...If we can take a look at the big picture, could you tell us, the people in this room, any information that you may have of an international and deceptive conspiracy to overthrow the American Republic and its Constitution & Bill Of Rights in order to set up and usher in a totalitarian World Government likely espoused under the UN also.. ? Congressman Paul replied: He asked if there was an international conspiracy to overthrow our government. The answer is Yes . I think there are 25,000 individuals that have used offices of powers, and they are in our Universities and they are in our Congresses, and they believe in One World Government. And if you believe in One World Government, then you are talking about undermining National Sovereignty and you are talking about setting up something that you could well call a Dictatorship - and those plans are there ...


Norman Dodd, director of research for the Reece Committee, which was commissioned to investigate tax-free foundations, speaking during an interview with Michael Lloyd Chadwick, editor of The Freeman Digest, stated: This brings me to two experiences which I will describe to you. The first was my response to an invitation during November 1953, from President Roman Gaither of the Ford Foundation, to meet in his office in New York. Upon arriving there, I was greeted with the following: 'Mr. Dodd, we invited you to come because we thought that perhaps, off the record, you would be kind enough t tell us why the Congress is interested in the operations of foundations such as ourselves.' Before I could think of how to reply, he volunteered this: 'Mr. Dodd, we operate here under directives...which emanate from the White House. Would you like to know what the substance of their directives is?' My answer was 'yes, Mr. Gaither, I would like very much to know.' Whereupon he said: 'the substance of the directives under which we operate is that we shall use our grant-making power to alter life in the United States so that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union.' Needless to say, I nearly fell off the chair.‚
The next experience involved the acceptance of an invitation from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace...I arrived at the office of Dr. Joseph Johnson who was then president of the Endowment. He was the successor to Alger Hiss who had been sentenced to five years for perjury because he had denied under oath that he was an agent of the Soviet Union...'Mr. Dodd, we have received your letter. We can answer the question but it will be a great deal of trouble...So we have a counter suggestion which is a follows: If you can spare a member of your staff and send him to New York for two weeks, we'll provide a room in our library and also make available to him the minute books of the corporation from its inception...As a result, I accepted the invitation and did send a member of my staff to New York. She later brought back to me on dictaphone belts what she had dictated from the minutes of the board. Following are excerpts from the minutes:

"Is there any way known to man more effective than war, assuming you wish to alter the life of an entire people? How do we involve the United States in such a war? "How do we secure control of the diplomatic machinery of the United States?
"We must get control of the State Department."
(W. Cleon Skousen was present during the above interviews, according to Glenn Kimber, then manager of the Freeman Institute and a personal friend of mine. Norman Dodd repeated this testimony at other times as well.)


In his book ‚Memoirs‚, published in 2002, David Rockefeller, Sr. made the following remarks: ‚For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‚internationalists‚ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure -- one world, if you will. If that‚s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.‚


UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, in a Council on Foreign Relations speech, 4/22/97, as reported in the Sept 1999 McAlvany Intelligence Advisor, stated: Clearly we cannot meet the challenges of the new millennium with an instrument designed for the very different circumstances of the middle of the twentieth century. Make no mistake about it, the anticipated reforms will erode national sovereignty, infringe on personal liberties, and lead the world into a system of global governance.


Dr. Carroll Quigley, late renowned history professor at Georgetown, Princeton and Harvard Universities, in his book Tragedy and Hope , stated: There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so. I know of the operation of this network because I have studied it for twenty years, and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records.... [I]n general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown....
" I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960's to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and many of its instruments. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies...but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known.
"The chief problem of American political life...has been how to make the two Congressional parties more national and international. The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can 'throw the rascals out' at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Pg 1247 - 1248

(In personal correspondence, retired columnist Charley Reese told me that according to Quigley‚s widow, her husband was preparing to revise and update the book when he discovered the printing plates had been destroyed by the publisher. In another statement which I apparently have lost, Quigley said he realized he had offended some powerful people in writing ‚Tragedy And Hope‚. )


James K. Fitzpatrick wrote the following on the editorial page of the national newspaper The Wanderer , November 18, 1993: "Clinton told reporters in an interview that Quigley's work centered on the existence of a permanent shadow government of powerful bankers and businessmen and government officials that controls the agenda of our political life from behind the scenes. Clinton spoke in that interview of coming to the conclusion, while still a young man, that it was necessary for him to gain access to the inner circle of this group in order to become part of the decision-making process that shapes our world. "


Dan Smoot, former FBI agent, assistant to J. Edgar Hoover, and close colleague of W. Cleon Skousen, independent broadcaster, and originator and editor of The Dan Smoot Report , about whom Gary Allen wrote ...considered by many to be the most sound and penetrating researcher and reporter of our time... wrote in his book The Invisible Government :
"I am convinced that the objective of this invisible government is to convert America into a socialist state and then make it a unit in a one-world socialist system." Pg. IV

Dan Smoot, in his book The Invisible Government , wrote: "Every significant movement to destroy the American way of life has been directed and financed, in whole or in part, by tax-exempt organizations, which are entrenched in public opinion as benefactors of society." Pg. 167
"...the invisible government is composed of organizations which enjoy the special privilege of federal tax-exemption (a privilege seldom given to organizations advocating return to traditional American policies)... Pg. 176


W. Cleon Skousen, former FBI agent and university professor, wrote in his book "The Naked Capitalist" the following: "I think the Communist conspiracy is merely a branch of a much bigger conspiracy'." The above statement was made to this reviewer several years ago by Bella Dodd, a former member of the National Committee of the U.S. Communist Party. Dr. Dodd said she first became aware of some mysterious super-leadership right after World War II when the U.S. Communist Party had difficulty getting instructions from Moscow on several vital matters requiring immediate attention. The American Communist hierarchy was told that any time they had an emergency of this kind they should contact any one of three designated persons at the Waldorf Towers. Dr. Dodd noted that whenever the Party obtained instructions from any of these three men, Moscow always ratified them. What puzzled Dr. Dodd was the fact that not one of these three contacts was a Russian. Nor were any of them Communists. In fact, all three were extremely wealthy American capitalists.‚ Pg.1.
I have further personal correspondence from Dr. Skousen on this subject, basically telling me that Bella Dodd never knew who the wealthy American capitalists were. Several years ago Dr. Skousen, in reply to my inquiry about Dr. Dodd having spoken of wealthy Americans who at times gave direction to the Communist Party USA right after World War 2, wrote to me: ...April 23, 1962. Bella Dodd told me that while she was working as a member of the national committee of the Communist Party, she learned from William Z. Foster, head of the American Communist Party, that if they couldn‚t make a decision on any particular problem they should go to the Waldorf Astoria for instructions. Their courier always took these inquiries to Arthur J. Goldsmith. However, she did not know whether he was one of the three or merely a go between who delivered the message to the three wealthy contacts and then later brought back the answer.


Dr. Dennis L. Cuddy, in his book Secret Records Revealed , wrote: 1917, March 24: The New York Times, on page two, prints a telegram from Jacob Schiff describing the Russian Revolution as 'what we had hoped and striven for these long years.' Schiff had heavily financed Woodrow Wilson's 1912 presidential campaign, and in 1916 Schiff paid Leon Trotsky's way to the U.S. In The New York Journal American (February 3, 1949) one will read: 'Today it is estimated even by Jacob's grandson, John Schiff, a prominent member of New York Society, that the old man sank about $20,000,000 for the final triumph of Bolshevism in Russia. Other leading banks also contributed.'
November...The White Russian General Arsene de Goulevitch would later claim that 'over 21 million rubles' had been given to the communists' cause by Lord Milner (The Group).

Gary Allen wrote in his book "None Dare Call It Conspiracy" the following: "A clique of American financiers not only helped establish Communism in Russia, but has striven mightily ever since to keep it alive. Ever since 1918 this clique has been engaged in transferring money and, probably more important, technical information, to the Soviet Union. This is made abundantly clear in the three volume history Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development by scholar Anthony Sutton of Stanford University's Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace. Using, for the most part, official State Department documents, Sutton shows conclusively that virtually everything the Soviets possess had been acquired from the West. " Pg. 75 (I have read some of Sutton‚s books and found them well researched.)


Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, in a 30 June 1975 speech at the Washington D.C. Hilton, stated: There also exists another alliance - at first glance a strange one...the alliance between our Communist leaders and your capitalists. This alliance in not new...We observe continuous and steady support by the businessmen of the West of the Soviet Communist leaders.


Dr. Bella Dodd, a former member of the National Committee of the U.S. Communist Party, wrote in 1954 in her book ‚Out of Darkness‚ (Pg 229) : ‚What now became clear to me was the collusion of these two forces: the Communists with their timetable for world control, and certain mercenary forces in the free world bent on making profits from blood.‚


"From Major Jordan‚s Diaries" was written by George Racey Jordan, one of the WW2 Lend-Lease expediters, then a U.S. Army Air force Major who during WW2 became aware of the transfer of, and actually saw and handled, among other things, materials and technical information that, as it turned out, were used by the Russians to build their first atomic bomb. After reading the book carefully, I extracted the following excerpts which implicate elements of the U.S. government, especially Harry Hopkins, the man in charge of Lend-Lease, in this activity. "But the tremendous volume of Lend-Lease material going through under diplomatic immunity , the infiltration of Soviet agents through the Pipeline, the shipments of non-military supplies and even military secrets, were more than I could stomach. I finally protested through proper channels in Great Falls, and then in Washington; nothing happened." Pg. 5

"It is true that we never knew the exact use to which anything sent under Russian Lend-Lease was put, and the failure to set up a system of accountability is now seen as an appalling mistake. But could anything be more foolish than to suppose that the atomic materials we sent were not used for an atomic bomb which materialized in Russia long before we expected it?...Our government was intent on supplying whatever the Russians asked for, as fast as we could get it to them - and I was one of the expediters. And when I say our government , I mean of course Harry Hopkins, the man in charge of Lend-Lease, and his aids. We in the Army knew where the orders were coming from, and so did the Russians." Pg. 35 & 36

"Not until the latter part of 1949 was it definitely proved, from responsible records, that during the war Federal agencies delivered to Russia at least three consignments of uranium chemicals, totaling 1,465 pounds, or nearly three quarters of a ton. Confirmed also was the shipment of one kilogram, or 2.2 pounds of uranium metal at a time when the total American stock was 4.5 pounds." Pg. 95

"There seemed to be no lengths to which some American officials would not go in aiding Russia to master the secret of nuclear fission." Pg.96

"When American supplies were cut off , the device of outmaneuvering General Groves was to procure the materials clandestinely from Canada...My share in the revelation was testimony under oath leading to one conclusion only - that the Canadian by-pass was aided by Mr. Hopkins. At his direction, Lend-Lease issued a certificate of release without which the consignment could not have moved." Pg. 98


" ... Mr. Hopkins personally directed me to expedite the Canadian shipment. ...I insisted that Harry Hopkins himself gave the order by telephone." Pg. 237
General Groves...declared there was no way for the Russians to get uranium products in this country without the support of U.S. authorities in one way or another. . Pg. 106 Under Lend-Lease law the President had full power to decide what defense articles, defense assistance the Russians were to get. He delegated that power to Harry Hopkins, with the result that in addition to defense supplies, the Russians got whatever they asked for, if someone lower in the hierarchy tried to prevent it." Pg. 130

"In his ardor for the Soviets, Hopkins never hesitated to seize upon supplies urgently demanded by other agencies, even when the issue was military success on the Western Front...The general feeling, Colonel Rounds said, was that in a given supply problem the Russians repeatedly came first." Pg. 140

Pat Robertson, in his 1990 book The New World Order , wrote: "In government policy, the most visible expression of the Establishment is the Council on Foreign Relations and its publication, Foreign Affairs .... According to a man who had been a member for fifteen years, Rear Admiral Chester Ward, former judge advocate general of the navy from 1956 to 1960, 'This purpose of promoting disarmament and submergence of U.S. sovereignty and national independence into an all-powerful one-world government is the only objective revealed to about 95 percent of 1,551 members (in 1975). There are two other ulterior purposes that CFR influence is being used to promote, but it is improbable that they are known to more than 75 members,... " Pg. 96 & 97

"The CFR is the American branch of a society which originated in England. Internationalist in viewpoint, the CFR, along with the Atlantic Union movement and the Atlantic Council of the United States, believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established." Pg. 128


Dan Smoot, in "The Invisible Government" , wrote: "The fact, however, that communists, Soviet espionage agents, and pro-communists could work inconspicuously for many years as influential members on the Council indicates something very significant about the Council's objectives. The ultimate aim of the Council on Foreign Relations (however well-intentioned its prominent and powerful members may be) is the same as the ultimate aim of international communism: to create a one-world socialist system and make the United States an official part of it." Pg. 6

Dr. Dennis L. Cuddy wrote in "Secret Records Revealed" : "1917, February 9: Rep. Oscar Calloway inserts the following statement in the Congressional Record : In March 1915 the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interests, and their subsidiary organizations got together twelve men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press on the United States...The twenty-five papers were agreed upon; emissaries were sent out to purchase the policy, national and international, of these papers; an agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers." Pg. 27 & 28


J.Ruben Clark wrote in his book "Stand Fast By The Constitution" : "The Covenant of the League of Nations...was rather fully explained to the people, and they rejected it.... The United Nations Charter...had practically no explanation made of it to the people, and they did not reject it.... A deliberate plan, carefully worked out, to adopt the Charter before the people could study and understand it, could not have worked more effectively to this end. We were so launched into a world organization, about which neither the peoples of the world, nor ourselves, had any adequate knowledge; they and we had less understanding."

Curtis Dall, for years a son-in-law of Franklin D. Roosevelt, wrote the following observations in his book "FDR - My Exploited Father-In-Law" "For a long time I felt that F.D.R. had developed many thoughts and ideas that were his own to benefit the country, the U.S.A. But he didn‚t. Most of this thoughts, his political ammunition as it were, was carefully manufactured for him in advance by the CFR - One-World Money group."

Curtis Dall also wrote that Felix Frankfurter had stated: "The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes."

Curtis Dall also stated in his book: "Dedicated to young Americans ‚ May you benefit from observing how certain shadowy forces contrive to ruthlessly advance their own financial and ideological objectives at your expense. They select, then groom, and ultimately control many of our highest government officials. They plan the wars and through foreign policy arrange to set the stage for incidents to inflate hostilities. They overwork the word peace to misled you and create a plausible smoke screen in order to conceal their real operations. You can recognize who they are. "

"The American people are not reared and trained to become international-minded schemers. As a result, we have become the ready victims of those who have been reared and steeped in that type of training. In addition, as a people, we are too inclined to hedonism, deeply absorbed in a program of pleasure. Toward that end, we are being encouraged and daily moulded by our foreign influenced press, radio and TV programs. We are encouraged to become absorbed in the trivial, for obvious reasons, by dedicated world-planners."

"Many of us are prone to feel that our political status, even our freedom and our liberty in the U.S.A. is secure....."

"Let us not fool ourselves. The wealth, freedom and liberty of the American people are being stolen and steadily nibbled away. Today, as easy suckers, we are buying many over-priced, political benefits , all paid for, of course, with our own hard-earned money We have also been goaded into trying to run the affairs of other nations which yields a fine profit for the world money powers who are in-the-know on credits and markets. Whether you realize it or not, this has all been planned for you in just that way."

"False images and managed news , however, will soon lead to the destruction of a free people, if we allow it. We means you and me..."


Pat Robertson, in his 1990 book "The New World Order" : "Further, I do not believe that normal men and women, if left to themselves, would spend a life time to form the world into a unified whole in order to control it after it had been unified. No, impulses of that sort do not spring from the human heart, or for that matter from God's heart. They spring, instead, from the depth of something that is evil, neither well intentioned nor benevolent.
"Such a world government can come together only after the Christian United States is out of the way. After all, the rest of the world can federate any time it wants to, but a vital, economically strong, Christian United States would have at its disposal the spiritual and material force to prohibit a worldwide satanic dictator from winning his battle. With America free and at large, Satan's schemes will at best be only partially successful."


The above represents a lot of reading of a lot of books and articles over a lot of years, which was motivated by the many disappointments I experienced as the forces of tyranny repeatedly won the battles with help from what I had thought were the forces of freedom.
