More On The Media And Council On Foreign Relations

"Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have." - Richard Salent, former president, CBS News

Now here is an interesting video about the media and the Council on Foreign Relations.

The New World Order is nothing new. Leaders have mentioned it in various speeches. President George H.W. Bush used the term "New World Order" to try to define the nature of the post Cold War era, and the spirit of great power cooperation that they hoped might materialize. Mikhail Gorbachev stated: "9-11 was not in vain if world leaders use the crisis to create the New World Order."

President Clinton talked about it as well. Other leaders like the United Kingdom's Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, who called for a "new world order" in his 2007 speech in New Delhi, which touched on the rise of Asia and growing concerns over global warming and finance. Brown said the new world order should incorporate a better representation of "the biggest shift in the balance of economic power in the world in two centuries. Hillary Clinton has promoted this globalist agenda as well, even back in 1984.
"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years....It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during these years,"but the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government which will never again know war but only peace and prosperity for the whole of humanity."
- David Rockefeller, June 5, 1991 Sand, Germany at an ultra-elite conclave of banking, political media, and industrialist committed to world government. The subject of his particular comments was the media's role in promoting the power elite's objectives.
One World Government - Crackpot Conspiracy Theory or Reality? Aren't we seeing the formation and knitting together various "coalitions" such as the big four: European Union(EU), The North American Union (SPP), Asian Union also known as the Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) and the African Union (AU) ?

Then there is the United Nations and the World Court, and the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, and then there is of course UNESCO directing global education.

It's all there, and the infrastructures to a New World Order have been in the making right before our eyes. The bigger picture includes global redistribution of wealth, and when one considers the hysteria over Al Gore's global warming and ultimate goal of taxing energy users and the political overtones to that one could see where this is all going.

But what about the press? They move to form public opinion, they tell you what they want you to see and hear and they also misdirect your attention to the unimportant.
“In the past 15 years, council directors have included Hedley Donovan of Time Inc, Elizabeth Drew of the New Yorker, Philip Geyelin of The Washington Post, Karen Elliott House of the Wall Street Journal and Strobe Talbott of Time magazine.… The editorial page editor, deputy editorial page editor, executive editor, managing editor, foreign editor, national affairs editor, business and financial editor, and various writers as well as Katharine Graham, the paper's principal owner, represent The Washington Post in the council's membership. The executive editor, managing editor and foreign editor of the New York Times are members, along with executives of such other large newspapers as the Wall Street Journal and Los Angeles Times, the weekly news-magazines, network television executives and celebrities - Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw, and Jim Lehrer, for example - and various columnists, among them Charles Krauthammer, William Buckley, George Will and Jim Hoagland.… They do not merely analyze and interpret foreign policy for the United States; they help make it...

[CFR] members are the nearest thing we have to a ruling establishment in the United States.” (Columnist Richard Harwood, Ruling Class Journalists, Washington Post, October 30, 1993, p.A21.)
Quote from the Free Library :
"Richard Harwood, the Washington Post's ombudsman, wrote an important column that ran in that paper on October 30, 1993, entitled "Ruling Class Journalists." In that piece, Harwood focused on the enormous influence exercised by members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) who occupy top positions in the media: editors, publishers, reporters, commentators, columnists. These "ruling class journalists" (RCJ) said Harwood, "do not merely analyze and interpret foreign policy for the United States; they help make it." George Will, who is syndicated by the CFR-laden Washington Post, was one of the RCJ whom Harwood mentioned by name. Mr. Will has since let his membership in the CFR lapse, but he carries out his RCJ role, nonetheless."
My previous post about the CFR is here.

So it is said: The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) are the wealthy and powerful elite. Their main objective is for a one-world-government. A New World Order (NWO). Here is a list of some members:

Hilary Clinton
Barack Obama
John McCain
John Edwards
Al Gore
David Rockefeller
Alan Greenspan
Donald Rumsfeld
Dick Cheney
Barbara Walters
Henry Kissinger

One World Government: Crackpot Conspiracy Theory or Reality?

"In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn't such a great idea after all." - Strobe Talbot, President Clinton's Deputy Secretary of State, as quoted in Time, July 20th, l992.

Does anyone recall why sovereignty is important:
"But if we are to be told by a foreign Power ... what we shall do, and what we shall not do, we have Independence yet to seek, and have contended hitherto for very little." - George Washington, letter to Alexander Hamilton, May 8, 1796
