1/19/2015: When I first started writing articles in 2005, I probably promulgated many popular theories because of my ignorance. I cringe when I read some of my early efforts. I could cleanse my own archives but it would be like trying to capture feathers in a whirlwind because my articles are on other web sites. While many of the issues that appear in this multi-part article remain true, I have engaged in further, more objective research and no longer support the same conclusions that I arrived at when I began writing on the internet. People perpetuate false information, often unknowingly, because he/she is quoting or relying on other people’s information. Each of us needs to engage in independent objective research, and always use critical thinking when reading the "research" of others.


Two major events culminated in the United States going into the two major world wars. From the sinking of the British steamship the Lusitania [i] on 7 May 1915 in which 128 American citizens lost their lives to the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941 which took 2,400 lives.  [ii] Another 1,100 were wounded. [iii] An enemy attack is a justifiable reason to retaliate in kind. However, from reliable sources and witnesses we can conclude that the devised circumstances of both events were known in advance and could have been prevented.

During the administration of John F. Kennedy some very influential members of his staff proffered a document entitled “Justification for U.S. Military Intervention in Cuba,” [iv] dated 13 March 1962, which recommended a fake attack on America for the sole purpose of instigating an invasion against communist Cuba. According to them, this fake attack might incorporate any of the following strategies: hijacked airplanes, bombings, “innocent people to be shot on American streets” and blameless people would be held accountable for acts they did not commit. The proponents of this nefarious scheme stated “We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington.” So intent on their political agenda, that they were willing to target a specific group of individuals who would then be incorrectly vilified as terrorists.

This covert plan was called Operations Northwoods [v] and apparently had been drawn up before Kennedy was even inaugurated. Kennedy categorically opposed the Northwoods plan. His endorsement would have cost the lives of many Americans as well as Cubans fighting in a devised war driven by the globalist agenda.

Kennedy strongly opposed other globalist plots. On 4 June 1963 he signed Executive Order, No. 11110 that would virtually strip the privately owned Federal Reserve of its power and return the authority to issue currency, which would be backed by silver, to the Federal government. [vi] That order, still valid, would have prevented the national debt from reaching its current astronomical level. Five months later Kennedy was assassinated. No other president has ever applied that order. [vii] Sudden death can be a mighty strong deterrent.

Pertaining to the stealth Northwoods Operation, Bamford says the following: “In retrospect, the documents offer new insight into the thinking of the military's star-studded leadership. Although they never succeeded in launching America into a phony war with Cuba, they may have done so with Vietnam. More than 50,000 Americans and more than 2 million Vietnamese were eventually killed in that war.” [viii]  War is devised, orchestrated, directed and declared, for a variety of reasons, by the elite and always fought by the patriotic citizens who also comprise the resulting carnage.

What exactly did the Vietnam War accomplish? It divided our country and caused significant economic, moral, cultural and social changes. While the war raged in Vietnam there was also a battle at home. The Feminist Movement was pitted against the American family. The combination of World War I and II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Feminist Revolution impacted the American family. By the time the fifteen year Vietnam War was over, abortion was in and would ultimately take the lives of over forty-four million weaponless people. The 1965 subtle but significant change in our immigration policies also influenced the American landscape. The wars are not always fought on traditional battlegrounds. Many are fought in the halls of congress, supported by special and subversive interests, against the American citizens. The result is always the same – the citizen loses.

How does the preceding information relate to contemporary events? Coincidences are rare and nothing is accidental. Successful prototypes are frequently repeated. Seemingly random events occur to bring about a desired result. And a President’s objectives can readily be recognized by their chosen accomplices.

George W. Bush officially took office on 20 January 2001. He selected the following individuals to assist in a globalist premeditated agenda:

Richard B. Cheney (CFR) – Vice President. He was President of Halliburton until 2000 and maintains connections to this company. They build oil pipelines, among other oil related ventures. He was one of the twenty-five signatories of the mission statement of the Project for a New American Century.

Condoleezza Rice (CFR) – She is currently Secretary of State. From 1991 to 2000 she was a Manager of Chevron Oil, and a Kazakhstan go-between. Chevron named their biggest oil tanker after Rice – the Condoleezza Rice. That name was changed in May of 2001 probably by request of the Bush administration. She was on the National Security Council for the first President Bush. She met with Bush Sr. in 1998 probably to discuss tutoring Bush Jr. She has not adopted “bushisms” but he has attempted to embrace her attitudes. She left her position at Stanford University to help Bush’s campaign on 1 July 1999. She shares the foreign policy mentality of Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and other birds of prey.

Donald Evans – Secretary of Commerce. He is the former CEO of Tom Brown, Inc. (a $1.2 billion oil company).

Douglas Feith (CFR) – He is another Richard Perle protégé and is currently Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, the department's number-three man, and has worked closely with Perle both as a lobbyist for Turkey and in co-authoring strategy papers for right-wing Israeli governments. He plans to resign the summer of 2005. He also served in the Reagan administration.

Colin L. Powell  (CFR) – Secretary of State, the first general to ever be named to this position. He worked as an analyst at the Pentagon before securing an appointment in the Office of Management and Budget under the director, Caspar Weinberger, and his deputy, Frank Carlucci. In 1987 he replaced Carlucci as the national security adviser for the duration of the Reagan administration. Powell was nominated by President Bush Sr. in 1989 to become chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), the nation's most prestigious military position. He continues in this position.

Spencer Abraham - Secretary of Energy. Up through his failed bid for senatorial reelection in 2000, he received more oil and gas industry money than all but three other senators (January 1997 through July 2000)

Thomas White – Secretary of the Army. He was a former Vice Chairman of Enron and a large shareholder of that company's stock.

Donald H. Rumsfeld – Secretary of Defense. He was a member of the House of Representatives from Illinois from 1962-1969 when he resigned to join the President's Cabinet. He became U.S. Ambassador to NATO in 1973. He was the youngest Secretary of Defense during 1975-1977. He is the former Chairman of G. D. Searle & Company, a well known pharmaceutical company which was later purchased by the infamous Monsanto, known for their worldwide distribution of poison. He was one of the twenty-five signatories of the mission statement of the Project for a New American Century.

John Ashcroft – Attorney General. An ex governor of the state of Missouri. He did not appear to favor the personal freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution. This is especially apparent in the anti-terrorism legislation. Ashcroft was replaced by Alberto Gonzales who was sworn in 3 February 2005 despite strenuous opposition. He served with the president when Bush was governor of Texas.  Gonzales has a record of very questionable human rights concerns.

Roderick R. Paige - Secretary of Education. He assisted in implementing the benign sounding let us further brainwash your children “No Child Left Behind” unconstitutional program of the Bush administration.

Richard Perle – He was the ultra hawkish chairman of the Pentagon’s Defense Policy Board until he resigned on 27 March 2003 probably due to the Seymour Hersh (9 March 2003, The New Yorker) public exposure of Perle’s many conflicts of interest. [ix] “His behavior in both the public and private spheres has been investigated and the board of Hollinger International singled him out in a report citing diversion of profits from shareholders to executives. One of his nicknames is "the Prince of Darkness".” [x] Perle had been employed by the bankrupt telecommunications firm Global Crossing Ltd. which attempted to get Pentagon clearance to be sold to Asian investors. According to the reports he solicited money from a Saudi who sought to influence our policy regarding Iraq. He would benefit personally from an invasion of Iraq. [xi]

Perle served on the Defense Policy Board Advisory Committee from 1987 to 2004. He was the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy from 1981 to 1987.

Perle designed what has been called the “creative destruction” of the Middle East which included an initial invasion of Iraq. He was the group leader for the 1996 document called “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm” which called for the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. [xii] Richard Perle is an advocate of first strike bombing which is doublespeak for invading any country deemed a possible threat.

I. Lewis Libby (CFR) – Vice President Cheney’s Chief of Staff and Assistant to the Vice President for National Security Affairs. He served in the first Bush administration including the position of Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Policy. He is a founding member of the Project for a New American Century. He was one of the writers, along with Wolfowitz, Kristol, Kagan, and others in writing its 2000 report entitled, "Rebuilding America's Defenses - Strategy, Forces, and Resources for a New Century." He also assisted, with Wolfowitz, in the writing of the “Defense Planning Guidance” for Defense Secretary Dick Cheney in 1992.

Paul Wolfowitz (CFR) – He is a ruthless, uncompromising protégé of Richard Perle. He was Deputy Secretary of Defense until he was appointed by George W. Bush to be President of the World Bank. He recently announced his “plans to underwrite – with U.S. tax dollars, of course – various global initiatives to combat the mythical menace of ‘global warming.’” [xiii] During the G-8 Summit in Scotland he said he wanted to use the World Bank as a mechanism for developing dialogue among nations in order to promote sustainable development, a United Nations program under their Agenda 21 plan.

Wolfowitz was the Undersecretary of Defense from 1989 to 1993 in the administration of George H. W. Bush. In that administration he was in charge of 700 people who had the task of restructuring military policy at the termination of the cold war.

Together with Lewis Libby, he co-authored the draft (later rewritten) of the 1992 Defense Planning Guidance. This is usually prepared every few years as an internal set of military guidelines. In 1992 this plan recommended U.S. military dominance over Eurasia. It also sanctioned preemptive strikes (doublespeak for invasion) against those who are even remotely suspected of developing weapons of mass destruction.  He favors redrawing the map of the Middle East. After 9-11 the National Security Strategy of the United States incorporated some of the key points from that draft. [xiv] Wolfowitz wanted to topple Saddam Hussein’s regime during the 1991 Gulf War. He was one of the twenty-five signatories of the mission statement of the Project for a New American Century.

On 6 January 1998 the Project for a New American Century wrote a letter to Bill Clinton urging the removal of Saddam Hussein among other things. This neo-conservative group favors big government but functions under the umbrella of conservatism.

This letter was signed by the following PNAC members, some of whom, waiting for the right administration, later joined the George W. Bush administration:

Elliott Abrams (CFR) – He was Deputy Assistant to George W. Bush and Deputy National Security Advisor for global democracy strategy in February 2005. From December 2002 to February 2005, he was the Special Assistant to the president and Senior Director for Near East and North African affairs.

Elliott Abrams pleaded guilty to withholding information from Congress regarding the Iran-Contra scandal in 1991. President George H. W. Bush pardoned him in 1992. His wife is Rachel Decter, daughter of big time CFR neo-cons Norman Podhoretz and Midge Decter.

Richard L. Armitage – He is served as Deputy Secretary of State from 03/29/2001 to 02/22/2005. He worked in the previous Bush administration and was a Special Emissary to Jordan’s King Hussein during the 1991 Gulf war.

William J. Bennett – He served as Secretary of Education and Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities in the Reagan administration. He is a Distinguished Fellow with the Heritage Foundation, a front for the Republican Party. He currently has an early morning talk radio show on which he promotes the Bush agenda. He apparently has a major gambling addiction despite his popularity as a morals advocate.

Jeffrey Bergner – Recently wrote a piece for the Weekly Standard about our Iranian options – Iran apparently is our next imperialistic target. Previously, he served as Staff Director of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, overseeing 60 employees.

John Bolton (CFR) – He was recently appointed as Ambassador to the U.N. after not being confirmed by Congress. He will leave his position as Under Secretary for Arms Control which is the top non-proliferation rank in the U.S. He held various positions in both the Reagan and previous Bush administrations.

Paula J. Dobriansky (CFR) – Since March of 2001 she has been Bush’s Under Secretary of Democracy and Global Affairs. Previous to this appointment she was the Senior Vice President and Director of the Washington Office of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Francis Fukuyama – He wrote State-Building: Governance and World Order in the 21st Century. Among other books, several on democratization and international political economy, he also wrote The End of History and the Last Man in 1992. Currently he is a member of the President’s Council on Bioethics.

Robert Kagan – Cheney selected Victoria Nuland, Robert Kagan’s wife as his Deputy National Security Adviser. In that capacity she promoted the expansion of democracy in Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine and Lebanon. On 13 July 2005 she became the United States Permanent Representative to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

Zalmay Khalilzad (CFR) – George W. Bush and his talk radio cheerleaders identify the major problem as Islamic fundamentalist terrorism. And Presidential Advisor extraordinaire Khalilzad can conjure up the antidote. As Special Assistant of the National Security Council to both Afghanistan and Iraq he helped to install the Afghanistan puppet president, Hamid Karzai in December 2001.

However, for at least twenty years, Khalilzad’s chief function is carrying out the brilliant Brzezinski strategy which involves using CIA trained Islamic fundamentalist terrorists to build the U.S. Empire which in turn strengthens the United Nations. Khalilzad is a Brzezinski protégé. Both were on the board of a company called Friends of Afghanistan. No one is exempt from manipulation when it comes to fueling the fires of globalist expansion. Just indoctrinate the willing or the impoverished, provide weapons and point to the devised target. This strategy was used in Afghanistan against Russia.

William Kristol (CFR) – He is the son of neo-con originals Irving Kristol and Gertrude Himmelfarb. He is not officially part of the administration but serves as a propagandizing cheerleader as editor of The Weekly Standard, a magazine owned by Rupert Murdoch. He also owns the New York Post.

Richard Perle: See his information above.

Peter W. Rodman (CFR) – He is the current Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs. He worked in the Reagan administration as the “Director of the State Department Policy Planning Staff (1984-1986), Deputy Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs (1986-1987), and Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs and NSC Counselor (1987-1990).” [xv] He worked for Henry Kissinger before working for Reagan.

Donald Rumsfeld: See his information above.

William Schneider, Jr. (CFR) – He is the Chairman of the Pentagon’s Defense Science Board and a member the State Department's Defense Trade Advisory Group.

He also belongs to several neo-con groups including the Hudson Institute, and the Center for Security Policy.  

“Vin” (John Vincent) Weber (CFR) – He is a former Republican Congressman from Minnesota (1981-1993). He is a lobbyist at Clark and Weinstock which boasts of clients such as Governor Schwarzenegger, Microsoft, and Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers.

Paul Wolfowitz (CFR): See his information above.

R. James Woolsey (CFR) – He is a former CIA director and a Rhodes Scholar.

Robert B. Zoellick (CFR) – He is the current Deputy Secretary of State and is the former U.S. Trade Representative. As a Trade (traitor) Representative he held negotiations with China and Taiwan to entice them into the World Trade Organization. He also worked with the Central American countries to arrive at the most recent CAFTA which was narrowly passed in the House on 28 July 2005 after vote buying and arm twisting.

Zoellick worked in the first Bush Administration. He was the major U.S. official who negotiated the North American Free Trade Agreement. He played a role as the personal representative at the G-7 Economic Summits in 1991 and 1992. He was appointed as the White House Deputy Chief of Staff and Assistant to the President in August 1992.

Many citizens focus on the qualifications of Supreme Court replacements – with an emphasis on Roe versus Wade. Despite the importance of that issue, there are other more grievous appointment concerns. George W. Bush very quickly filled his administrative ranks with members of the Council on Foreign Relations, a group dedicated to a globalist New World Order. With additional predatory war hawks from the Project for a New American Century and George H. W. Bush’s globalist gang we should not be the least surprised to find the United States participating in devised warfare, the path to the New World Order. We invaded Afghanistan and Iraq and there is the war against the American citizens known as the “war on terror” in which there will be an ongoing deprivation of our freedoms supposedly to “protect” us but rather – to control and terrorize us.
