A History of the New World Order


by cyberpatriot@hotmail.com

1773 - Mayer Amschel Rothschild assembles twelve of his most influential friends and convinces them that if they all pool their resources together, they can rule the world. This meeting takes place in Frankfurt, Germany. Rothschild also informs his friends that he has found the perfect candidate, an individual of incredible intellect and ingenuity, to lead the organization he has planned - Adam Weishaupt.

May 1, 1776 - Adam Weishaupt (code named Spartacus) establishes a secret society called the Order of the Illuminati. Weishaupt is the Professor of Canon Law at the University of Ingolstadt in Bavaria, part of Germany. [This date, May Day, is to become highly significant to the Soviet Communists. They held festive military parades on this day.] The Illuminati seek to establish a New World Order. Their objectives are as follows:
1) Abolition of all ordered governments
2) Abolition of private property
3) Abolition of inheritance
4) Abolition of patriotism
5) Abolition of the family
6) Abolition of religion
7) Creation of a world government

July 1782 - The Order of the Illuminati joins forces with Freemasonry at the Congress of Wilhelmsbad. The Comte de Virieu, an attendee at the conference, comes away visibly shaken. When questioned about the "tragic secrets" he brought back with him, he replies: "I will not confide them to you. I can only tell you that all this is very much more serious than you think." From this time on, according to his biographer, "the Comte de Virieu could only speak of Freemasonry with horror."

1785 - An Illuminati courier named Lanze is struck by lightning and killed while traveling by horseback through the town of Ratisbon. When Bavarian officials examine the contents of his saddle bags, they discover the existence of the Order of the Illuminati and find plans detailing the coming French Revolution. The Bavarian government attempts to alert the government of France of impending disaster, but the French government fails to heed this warning. Bavarian officials arrest all members of the Illuminati they can find, but Weishaupt and others have gone underground and cannot be found.

Oct. 11, 1785 - Bavarian authorities raid the home of an Illuminati member named Von Zwack. They discover Illuminati documents which show quite clearly that they plan to bring about a "universal revolution that should deal the death-blow to society...this revolution will be the work of the secret societies, and that is one of our great mysteries."

1789 - Violence erupts in France. The French Revolution not only overthrows the existing government but also attempts to eliminate Christianity from the nation. A half-naked prostitute is placed on the altar of the Cathedral of Notre Dame and extolled as the "Goddess of Reason." Revolutionary officials even do away with the seven-day week and replace it with a ten-day week.

1796 - Freemasonry becomes a major issue in the Presidential election in the United States. John Adams wins the election by opposing Masonry, and his son John Quincy Adams warns of the dire threat to the nation posed by the Masonic Lodges: "I do conscientiously and sincerely believe that the Order of Freemasonry, if not the greatest, is one of the greatest moral and political evils under which the Union is now laboring."

1797 - John Robison, Professor of Natural History at Edinburgh University in Scotland, publishes a book entitled "Proofs of a Conspiracy" in which he reveals that Adam Weishaupt had attempted to recruit him. He exposes the diabolical aims of the Illuminati to the world.

1798 - George Washington acknowledges that Illuminati activity has come to America: "It is not my intention to doubt that the doctrine of the Illuminati and the principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more satisfied of this fact than I am."

1816 - Congress grants a 20-year charter to the Bank of the United States, a private central bank for this country. [The Constitution had granted to Congress the "power to coin money and regulate the value thereof." Thomas Jefferson had specifically warned the American people against turning this power to create money over to a private group that was unelected and not accountable to the public: "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."]

1821 - Georg W. F. Hegel formulates what is called the Hegelian dialectic - the process by which Illuminati objectives are achieved. According to the Hegelian dialectic, thesis plus antithesis equals synthesis. In other words, first you foment a crisis. Then there is an enormous public outcry that something must be done about the problem. So you offer a solution that brings about the changes you really wanted all along, but which people would have been unwilling to accept initially.

1826 - William Morgan attempts to publish a book exposing the wrongdoing of the Masonic Lodges. While he is in the process of having his book printed, he mysteriously disappears. [His body was found in Lake Ontario a year later.]

1828 - Mayer Amschel Rothschild, who finances the Illuminati, expresses his utter contempt for national governments which attempt to regulate international bankers such as him: "Allow me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who writes the laws." [As Sir Josiah Stamp, president of the Bank of England in the 1920s, would remark years later: "Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The bankers own the earth; take it away from them but leave them the power to create deposits, and with a flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again."]

1829 - British Illuminist Frances "Fanny" Wright gives a series of lectures in the United States. She announces that various subversives and revolutionaries are to be united in a movement that will be called "Communism." She explains that the movement is to be made more acceptable to the public by professing to support "equal opportunity" and "equal rights."

1829-1837 - While President Andrew Jackson is in office, there are attempts to continue and strengthen the hold of a central bank over the United States. President Jackson vigorously opposes these efforts. Jackson tells his adversaries: "You are a den of vipers! I intend to rout you out, and by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be a revolution before morning." In 1832, Jackson vetoes a bill to renew the charter of the Bank of the United States. In 1833, he removes government funds from the Bank of the United States.

1848 - Moses Mordecai Marx Levy, alias Karl Marx, writes "The Communist Manifesto." Marx is a member of an Illuminati front organization called the League of the Just. He not only advocates economic and political changes; he advocates moral and spiritual changes as well. He believes the family should be abolished and that all children should be raised by a central authority. He expresses his attitude toward God by saying: "We must war against all prevailing ideas of religion, of the state, of country, of patriotism. The idea of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization. It must be destroyed."

Jan. 22, 1870 - In a letter to Italian revolutionary leader Giuseppe Mazzini, Albert Pike - Sovereign Grand Commander of the Southern Jurisdiction of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry - announces the establishment of a secret society within a secret society: "We must allow all of the federations to continue just as they are, with their systems, their central authorities and their diverse modes of correspondence between high grades of the same rite, organized as they are at present, but we must create a super rite, which will remain unknown, to which we will call those Masons of high degree of whom we shall select. With regard to our brothers in Masonry, these men must be pledges to the strictest secrecy. Through this supreme rite, we will govern all Freemasonry which will become the one international center, the more powerful because its direction will be unknown." This ultra-secret organization is called The New and Reformed Paladian Rite.

1870 - John Ruskin is named Professor of Fine Arts at Oxford University in England. He teaches his students that the government should take control of all means of production and distribution, and he is prepared to place control of the government in the hands of a single man: "My continual aim has been to show the eternal superiority of some men to others, sometimes even of one man to all others."

1871 - Albert Pike publishes his 861-page book "Morals and Dogma", intended only for Masonic eyes. He indicates that those in the lower ranks of Masonry are deliberately deceived by their superiors: "The Blue degrees [the first three degrees of the 32] are but the outer court or portico of the Temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the Initiate, but he is intentionally misled by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them; but it is intended that he shall imagine that he shall understand them. Their true explication is reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry." [This is why about 95% of the men involved in Masonry don't have a clue as to what the objectives of the organization actually are. They are under the delusion that it's just a fine community organization doing good works.]

1875 - Russian occultist Helena Petrovna Blavatsky founds the Theosophical Society. Madame Blavatsky claims that Tibetan holy men in the Himilayas, whom she refers to as the Masters of Wisdom, communicated with her in London by telepathy. She insists that the Christians have it all backwards - that Satan is good and God is evil. She writes: "The Christians and scientists must be made to respect their Indian betters. The Wisdom of India, her philosophy and achievement, must be made known in Europe and America."

1884 - The Fabian Society is founded to promote Socialism. The Fabian Society takes its name from the Roman General Fabius Maximus, who fought Hannibal's army in small debilitating skirmishes, rather than attempting one decisive battle.

July 14, 1889 - Albert Pike issues instructions to the 23 Supreme Councils of the world. He reveals who is the true object of Masonic worship: "To you, Sovereign Grand Instructors General, we say this, that you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st and 30th degrees: The Masonic religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine."

1890-1896 - Cecil Rhodes, an enthusiastic student of John Ruskin, is Prime Minister of South Africa, a British colony at the time. He is able to exploit and control the gold and diamond wealth of South Africa. He works to bring all the habitable portions of the world under the domination of a ruling elite. To that end, he uses a portion of his vast wealth to establish the famous Rhodes Scholarships.

Feb. 5, 1891 - Rhodes joins his group from Oxford with a similar group from Cambridge headed by ardent social reformer William Stead. Rhodes and Stead are members of the inner "Circle of Initiates" of the secret society which they found. There is also an outer circle known as the "Association of Helpers."

1891 - Madame Blavatsky dies. The mantle of leadership for the worldwide theosophical movement falls to Annie Besant, a militant feminist and a member of the Fabian Socialist Society of England. She enthusiastically joins in revolutionary street riots and pens numerous volumes of occultic writings to add to those of Blavatsky.

1893 - The Theosophical Society sponsors a Parliament of World Religions held in Chicago. The purpose of the convention is to introduce Hindu and Buddhist concepts, such as belief in reincarnation, to the West.

1909-1913 - Lord Alfred Milner organizes the "Association of Helpers" into various Round Table Groups in the British dependencies and the United States.

1911 - The Socialist Party of Great Britain publishes a pamphlet entitled "Socialism and Religion" in which they clearly state their position on Christianity: "It is therefore a profound truth that Socialism is the natural enemy of religion. A Christian Socialist is in fact an anti-Socialist. Christianity is the antithesis of Socialism."

1912 - Colonel Edward M. House, a close advisor of President Woodrow Wilson, publishes Phillip Dru: Administrator, in which he promotes "socialism as dreamed of by Karl Marx."

Feb. 3, 1913 - The 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, making it possible for the Federal government to impose a progressive income tax, is ratified. Plank #2 of "The Communist Manifesto" had called for a progressive income tax. [In 1948, the median American family paid 2% of its annual income in Federal income tax; now it's almost 25%.]

1913 - President Woodrow Wilson publishes "The New Freedom" in which he reveals: "Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the U.S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it."

Dec. 23, 1913 - The Federal Reserve [neither federal nor a reserve - it's a privately owned institution] is created. It was planned at a secret meeting in 1910 on Jekyl Island, Georgia, by a group of bankers and politicians, including Col. House. This transfers the power to create money from the American government to a private group of bankers. The Federal Reserve Act is hastily passed just before the Christmas break. Plank #5 of "The Communist Manifesto" had called for just such a central bank. [It is probably the largest generator of debt in the world.] Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh Sr. (father of the famed aviator) warns: "This act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs this act the invisible government by the money power, proven to exist by the Money Trust investigation, will be legalized. The money power overawes the legislative and executive forces of the Nation and of the States. I have seen these forces exerted during the different stages of this bill."

1916 - Three years after signing the Federal Reserve Act into law, President Woodrow Wilson observes: "I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men."

1916 - Italian Socialist Antonio Gramsci states: "Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. Socialism is religion in the sense that it too is a faith with its mystics and rituals; religion, because it has substituted for the consciousness of the transcendental God of the Christians, the faith in man and in his great strengths as a unique spiritual reality."

1917 - With aid from financiers in New York City and London, V. I. Lenin is able to overthrow the government of Russia. Lenin later comments on the apparent contradiction of the links between prominent capitalists and Communism: "There also exists another alliance - at first glance a strange one, a surprising one - but if you think about it, in fact, one which is well grounded and easy to understand. This is the alliance between our Communist leaders and your capitalists." [Remember the Hegelian dialectic?]

May 30, 1919 - Prominent British and American personalities establish the Royal Institute of International Affairs in England and the Institute of International Affairs in the U.S. at a meeting arranged by Col. House; attended by various Fabian socialists, including noted economist John Maynard Keynes.

1920 - Britain's Winston Churchill recognizes the connection between the Illuminati and the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. He observes: "From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, to those of Trotsky, Bela Kun, Rosa Luxembourg, and Emma Goldman, this world wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played a definitely recognizable role in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the nineteenth century, and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads, and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire."

1920-1931 - Louis T. McFadden is Chairman of the House Committee on Banking and Curency. Concerning the Federal Reserve, Congressman McFadden notes: "When the Federal Reserve Act was passed, the people of these United States did not perceive that a world banking system was being set up here. A super-state controlled by international bankers and international industrialists acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure. Every effort has been made by the Fed to conceal its powers but the truth is - the Fed has usurped the Government. It controls everything here and it controls all our foreign relations. It makes and breaks governments at will." Concerning the Great Depression and the country's acceptance of FDR's New Deal, he asserts: "It was no accident. It was a carefully contrived occurrence. The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so they might emerge as the rulers of us all."

1921 - Col. House reorganizes the American branch of the Institute of International Affairs into the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). [For the past 60 years, 80% of the top positions in every administration - whether Democrat or Republican - have been occupied by members of this organization. During that time, only two Presidents have not been directly affiliated with the CFR - John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. Kennedy was assassinated and an attempt was made on Reagan's life!]

December 15, 1922 - The CFR endorses World Government in its magazine "Foreign Affairs." Author Philip Kerr states: "Obviously there is going to be no peace or prosperity for mankind as long as the earth remains divided into 50 or 60 independent states, until some kind of international system is created. The real problem today is that of world government."

1928 - "The Open Conspiracy: Blue Prints for a World Revolution" by H. G. Wells is published. A former Fabian socialist, Wells writes: "The political world of the Open Conspiracy must weaken, efface, incorporate and supersede existing governments. The Open Conspiracy is the natural inheritor of socialist and communist enthusiasms; it may be in control of Moscow before it is in control of New York. The character of the Open Conspiracy will now be plainly displayed. It will be a world religion."

1932 - New books are published urging world order:
"Toward Soviet America," by William Z. Foster. Head of the Communist Party USA, Foster indicates that a National Department of Education would be one of the means used to develop a new socialist society in the U.S.
"The New World Order," by F. S. Marvin, describing the League of Nations as the first attempt at a New World Order. Marvin says, " nationality must rank below the claims of mankind as a whole."
"Dare the School Build a New Social Order?" is published. Educator-author George Counts asserts that "the teachers should deliberately reach for power and then make the most of their conquest" in order to "influence the social attitudes, ideals and behavior of the coming generation. The growth of science and technology has carried us into a new age where ignorance must be replaced by knowledge, competition by cooperation, trust in Providence by careful planning and private capitalism by some form of social economy."

1932 - "Plan for Peace" by American Birth Control League founder Margaret Sanger is published. She calls for coercive sterilization, mandatory segregation, and rehabilitative concentration camps for all "dysgenic stocks," including Blacks, Hispanics, American Indians and Catholics. [The American Birth Control League eventually becomes Planned Parenthood - the nation's foremost promoter and provider of abortion services. Many today are not aware of the racist origins of Planned Parenthood.]

1933 - The first "Humanist Manifesto" is published. Co-author John Dewey, the noted philosopher and educator, calls for a synthesizing of all religions and "a socialized and cooperative economic order." Co-signer C. F. Potter said in 1930, "Education is thus a most powerful ally of humanism, and every American public school is a school of humanism. What can the theistic Sunday schools, meeting for an hour once a week, teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of a five-day program of humanistic teaching?"

1933 - "The Shape of Things to Come" by H. G. Wells is published. Wells predicts a second world war around 1940, originating from a German-Polish dispute. After 1945 there would be an increasing lack of public safety in "criminally infected" areas. The plan for the "Modern World State" would succeed on its third attempt, and come out of something that occurred in Basra, Iraq. The book also states: "Although world government had been plainly coming for some years, although it had been endlessly feared and murmured against, it found no opposition anywhere."

Nov. 21, 1933 - In a letter to Col. Edward M. House, President Franklin Roosevelt writes: "The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson."

1934 - "The Externalization of the Hierarchy" by Alice Bailey is published. Bailey is an occultist, taking over from Annie Besant as head of the Theosophical Society. Bailey's works are channeled from a spirit guide, the Tibetan Master [demon spirit] Djwahl Kuhl. [Her teachings form the foundation for the current New Age movement.] She writes: "The hour for the ancient mysteries has arrived. These Ancient Mysteries were hidden in numbers, in ritual, in words, and in symbology; these veil the secret. There is no question therefore that the work to be done in familiarizing the general public with the nature of the Mysteries is of paramount importance at this time. These Mysteries will be restored to outer expression through the medium of the Church and the Masonic Fraternity." She further states: "Out of the spoliation of all existing culture and civilization, the new world order must be built."
[The book is published by the Lucis Trust, incorporated originally in New York as the Lucifer Publishing Company. Lucis Trust is a United Nations NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) and has been a major player at the recent UN summits. Later, Assistant Secretary General of the U.N. Robert Muller would credit the creation of his World Core Curriculum for education to the underlying teachings of Djwahl Kuhl, via Alice Bailey's writings on the subject.]

1937 - Students at the Lenin School of Political Warfare in Moscow are taught: "Today, of course, we are not strong enough to attack. To win, we shall need the element of surprise. The western world will have to be put to sleep. So we shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movement on record. There shall be electrifying overtures and unheard of concessions. The capitalist countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate to their own destrution. They will leap at another chance to be friends. As soon as their guard is down, we shall smash them with our clenched fist."

October 28, 1939 - In an address by John Foster Dulles [later U.S. Secretary of State], he proposes that America lead the transition to a new order of less independent, semi-sovereign states bound together by a league or federal union.

1939 - "New World Order" by H. G. Wells proposes a "collectivist one-world state" or "new world order" comprised of "socialist democracies." He advocates "universal conscription for service" and declares that "nationalist individualism is the world's disease." He continues: "The manifest necessity for some collective world control to eliminate warfare and the less generally admitted necessity for a collective control of the economic and biological life of mankind, are aspects of one and the same process." He proposes that this be accomplished through "universal law" and "propaganda" (or education).

1940 - "The New World Order" is published by the Carnegie Endowment for Peace and contains a select list of references on regional and world federation, together with some special plans for world order after the war.

December 12, 1940 - In "The Congressional Record" an article entitled "A New World Order" by John G. Alexander calls for a world federation.

March 1942 - An article in "TIME" magazine chronicles the Federal Council of Churches [which later becomes the National Council of Churches, a part of the World Council of Churches] lending its weight to efforts to establish a global authority. A meeting of the top officials of the council comes out in favor of: 1) a world government of delegated powers; 2) strong immediate limitations on national sovereignty; 3) international control of all armies and navies. Representatives (375 of them) of 30-some denominations assert that "a new order of economic life is both imminent and imperative" - a new order that is sure to come either "through voluntary cooperation within the framework of democracy or through explosive revolution."

1942 - The leftist Institute of Pacific Relations publishes "Post War Worlds" by P. E. Corbett: "World government is the ultimate aim. It must be recognized that the law of nations takes precedence over national law. The process will have to be assisted by the deletion of the nationalistic material employed in educational textbooks and its replacement by material explaining the benefits of wiser association."

June 28, 1945 - President Truman endorses world government in a speech: "It will be just as easy for nations to get along in a republic of the world as it is for us to get along in a republic of the United States."

October 24, 1945 - The United Nations Charter becomes effective. Also on October 24, Senator Glen Taylor (D-Idaho) introduces Senate Resolution 183, calling upon the U.S. Senate to go on record as favoring creation of a world republic, including an international police force.

1946 - "The Teacher and World Government," by former editor of the "NEA Journal" (National Education Association) Joy Elmer Morgan, is published. He says: "In the struggle to establish an adequate world government, the teacher can do much to prepare the hearts and minds of children for global understanding and cooperation. At the very heart of all the agencies which will assure the coming of world government must stand the school, the teacher, and the organized profession."

1947 - The American Education Fellowship calls for the "...establishment of a genuine world order, an order in which national sovereignty is subordinate to world authority."

July 1948 - Sir Harold Butler, in the CFR's "Foreign Affairs," sees "a New World Order" taking shape: "How far can the life of nations, which for centuries have thought of themselves as distinct and unique, be merged with the life of other nations? How far are they prepared to sacrifice a part of their sovereignty without which there can be no effective economic or political union?"

1948 - The preliminary draft of a "World Constitution" is published by U.S. educators, advocating regional federation on the way toward world federation. It provides for a "World Council" with a "Chamber of Guardians" to enforce world law, as well as a call for nations to surrender their arms to the world government, and the right of this "Federal Republic of the World" to seize private property for its use.

Feb. 7, 1950 - International financier and CFR member James Warburg tells a Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee: "We shall have world government whether or not you like it - by conquest or consent."

Feb. 9, 1950 - The Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee introduces Senate Concurrent Resolution #66 which begins: "Whereas, in order to achieve universal peace and justice, the present Charter of the United Nations should be changed to provide a true world government constitution." The resolution is introduced by Senator Glen Taylor (D-Idaho), who later states: "We would have to sacrifice considerable sovereignty to the world organization to enable them to levy taxes in their own right to support themselves."

April 12, 1952 - CFR member John Foster Dulles [who later became Secretary of State] begins to perpetuate a giant lie. In speaking before the American Bar Association in Louisville, Kentucky, he says: "Treaty law can override the Constitution. Treaties can take powers away from Congress and give them to the President. They can take powers from the States and give them to the Federal Government or to some international body, and they can cut across the rights given to the people by their constitutional Bill of Rights."

1952 - The World Association of Parliamentarians for World Government draws up a map designed to illustrate how foreign troops would occupy and police the six regions into which the United States and Canada will be divided as part of their world government plan.

1953 - Rowan Gaither, President of the Ford Foundation, tells a Congressional commission investigating tax-exempt foundations: "We at the executive level here were active in either the OSS [forerunner of the CIA], the State Department, or the European Economic Administration. During those times, and without exception, we operated under directives issued by the White House. We are continuing to be guided by just such directives, the substance of which were to the effect that we should make every effort to so alter life in the United States as to make possible a comfortable merger with the Soviet Union."

Feb. 23, 1954 - Senator William Jenner of Indiana says before the U.S. Senate: "Today the path to total dictatorship in the United States can be laid by strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by Congress, the President, or the people. We have a well-organized political action group in this country, determined to destroy our Constitution and establish a one-party state. It has a foothold within our Government, and its own propaganda apparatus. One may call this group by many names. Some people call it socialism, some collectivism. I prefer to call it 'democratic centralism.' The important point to remember about this group is not its ideology but its organization. It is a dynamic, aggressive, elite corps, forcing its way through every opening, to make a breach for a collectivist one-party state. It operates secretly, silently, continuously to transform our Government without our suspecting the change is underway. This secret revolutionary corps understands well the power to influence the people by an elegant form of brainwashing. We see this, for example, in the innocent use of words like 'democracy' in place of 'representative government.' "

1954 - Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands establishes the Bilderbergers, international politicians and bankers who meet secretly on an annual basis.

1959 - Norman Thomas, who six times was the candidate of the Socialist Party for President of the United States, observes: "The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism, but under the name Liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program until America will one day be a Socialist nation without knowing how it happened."

1959 - Nikita Khrushchev, ruthless dictator of the Soviet Union, states: "We can't expect the American people to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism until they awaken one day to find they have Communism."

Nov. 25, 1959 - Council on Foreign Relations Study Number 7 calls for a "...new international order which must be responsive to world aspirations for peace, for social and economic change...an international order...including states labeling themselves as 'socialist' [communist]."

1959 - The World Constitution and Parliament Association is founded, which develops a "Diagram of World Government Under the Constitution for the Federation of Earth."

1959 - "The Mid-Century Challenge to U.S. Foreign Policy" is published, sponsored by the Rockefeller Brothers' Fund. It explains that the U.S. "cannot escape, and indeed should welcome...the task which history has imposed upon us. This is the task of helping to shape a new world order in all its dimensions - spiritual, economic, political, social."

1961 - The U.S. State Department issues Document 7277, entitled "Freedom From War: The U.S. Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World." It details a three-stage plan to disarm all nations and arm the U.N. with the final stage in which "no state would have the military power to challenge the progressively strengthened U.N. Peace Force."

1962 - A study entitled "A World Effectively Controlled by the United Nations" is published, in which CFR member Lincoln Bloomfield states: "...if the Communist dynamic was greatly abated, the West might lose whatever incentive it has for world government."

1962 - "The Future of Federalism" by Nelson Rockefeller claims that current events compellingly demand a "new world order." He says there is: "A fever of nationalism...but the nation-state is becoming less and less competent to perform its international political tasks...These are some of the reasons pressing us to lead vigorously toward the true building of a new world order...Sooner perhaps than we may realize...there will evolve the bases for a federal structure of the free world."

Nov. 13, 1963 - It is alleged that just ten days prior to his assassination, President John F. Kennedy tells a Columbia University audience: "The high office of President has been used to foment a plot to destroy the Americans' freedom, and before I leave office I must inform the citizens of this plight."

Dec. 1964 - Harold Drummon, former President of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, writes in the magazine "Educational Leadership": "The basic goal of education is change - human change."

1966 - Professor Carroll Quigley, Bill Clinton's mentor at Georgetown University, authors a massive volume entitled "Tragedy and Hope" in which he states: "There does exist and has existed for a generation, an international 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 operations 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 have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to 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."

1968 - Joy Elmer Morgan, former editor of the "NEA Journal," publishes "The American Citizen's Handbook" in which he says: "The coming of the United Nations and the urgent necessity that it evolve into a more comprehensive form of world government places upon the citizens of the United States an increased obligation to make the most of their citizenship which now widens into active world citizenship."

July 26, 1968 - Nelson Rockefeller pledges that "as President, he would work toward international creation of a new world order."

1969 - A document entitled "Marriage and the Family" is published by the British Humanist Association stating that "some opponents of humanism have accused us of wishing to overthrow the traditional Christian family. They are right. That is exactly what we intend to do."

1970 - The U.S. Department of Defense appropriates funds [$2 million a year for five years] for the "development of immune-system destroying agents for biological warfare." [Source of the HIV virus which causes AIDS. The virus was then introduced into the homosexual community via hepatitis vaccine and into Central Africa via smallpox vaccine.]

1970 - Zbigniew Brzezinski [who later became President Jimmy Carter's National Security Advisor] writes a book entitled "Between Two Ages." He has nothing but praise for Marxism: "Marxism represents a further vital and creative stage in the maturing of man's universal vision...Marxism is simultaneously a victory of the external, active man over the inner, passive man and a victory of reason over belief...Marxism, disseminated on the popular level in the form of communism, represents a major advance in man's ability to conceptualize his relationship to the world." He also describes how war can be waged against a nation without its citizens even realizing they are under attack: "Technology will make available to the leaders of major nations a variety of techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of security forces need be appraised. One nation may attack a competitor covertly...techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm, thereby weakening a nation's capacity and forcing it to accept the demands of the competitor."

1972 - President Nixon visits China and toasts Chinese Premier Chou En-lai by talking of "the hope that each of us has to build a new world order."

April 1972 - In his keynote address to the Association for Childhood Education International, Chester M. Pierce, Professor of Education and Psychiatry in the Faculty of Medicine at Harvard University, proclaims: "Every child in America entering school at the age of five is insane because he comes to school with certain allegiances toward our founding fathers, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being. It's up to you, teachers, to make all of these sick children well by creating the international child of the future."

May 18, 1972 - In speaking of the coming world government, Roy M. Ash, Director of the Office of Management and Budget, declares that: "...within two decades the institutional framework for a world economic community will be in place...and aspects of individual sovereignty will be given over to a supernational authority."

1973 - International banker and staunch member of the subversive Council on Foreign Relations, David Rockefeller founds a new organization called the Trilateral Commission. He invites future President Jimmy Carter to become one of the founding members. Zbigniew Brzezinski is the organization's first director.

1973 - "Humanist Manifesto II" is published: "The next century can be and should be the humanistic century...we stand at the dawn of a new age...a secular society on a planetary scale...as non-theists we begin with humans not God, nature not deity...we deplore the division of humankind on nationalistic grounds...Thus we look to the development of a system of world law and a world order based based upon trans-national federal government...The true revolution is occurring."

1973 - The Club of Rome, a U.N. operative, issues a report entitled "Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System." This report divides the entire world into ten kingdoms.

Feb. 10, 1973 - Catherine Barrett, former president of the National Education Association, writes that "dramatic changes in the way we will raise our children in the year 2000 are indicated, particulary in terms of schooling. We will need to recognize that the so-called 'basic skills,' which currently represent nearly the total effort in elementary schools, will be taught in one-quarter of the present school day. When this happens - and it's near - the teacher can rise to his true calling. More than a dispenser of information, the teacher will be a conveyor of values, a philosopher. We will be agents of change."

Aug. 10, 1973 - David Rockefeller writes an article for the "New York Times" describing his recent visit to Red China: "Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community purpose." [Apparently, it matters very little to Mr. Rockefeller that the government of Communist China has slaughtered 64 million human beings in the process of consolidating its power and that it continues to brutally suppress all dissent.]

April 1974 - Former U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, Trilateralist and CFR member Richard Gardner's article "The Hard Road to World Order" is published in the CFR's "Foreign Affairs," where he states that: "...the 'house of world order' will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down...but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault."

1974 - In a report entitled "New International Economic Order," the U.N. General Assembly outlines a plan to redistribute the wealth from the rich to the poor nations.

1975 - In Congress, 32 Senators and 92 Representatives sign "A Declaration of Interdependence," which states that "we must join with others to bring forth a new world order...Narrow notions of national sovereignty must not be permitted to curtail that obligation." Congresswoman Marjorie Holt refuses to sign the Declaration saying: "It calls for the surrender of our national sovereignty to international organizations. It declares that our economy should be regulated by international authorities. It proposes that we enter a 'new world order' that would redistribute the wealth created by the American people."

1975 - Retired Navy Admiral Chester Ward, former Judge Advocate General of the U.S. Navy and former CFR member, writes in a critique that the goal of the CFR is the "...submergence of U.S. sovereignty and national independence into an all powerful one-world government..."

1976 - In the March/April issue of "The Humanist," Paul Blanshard writes: "I think the most important factor leading us to a secular society has been the educational factor. Our schools may not teach Johnny to read properly, but the fact that Johnny is in school until he is sixteen tends to lead toward the elimination of religious superstition. The average child now acquires a high school education, and this militates against Adam and Eve and all other myths of alleged history."

Fall 1976 - Radio operators all over the world begin receiving peculiar electronic pulses which they dub the "woodpecker." [It is learned that the source of the woodpecker is the Soviet Union. Soviet weather engineers are sending out the most powerful man-made radio beams ever created - many times more powerful than anything even planned before that - in efforts to alter the earth's weather.] [The "woodpecker" is a 1 megawatt CW tube that can now be purchased commercially from Svetlana of St. Petersberg Russia -the peripatetic Ed.]

1977 - The Trilateral Commission publishes official paper #13 entitled "Collaboration with Communist Countries in Mankind's Global Problems." The report recommends "Trilateral/Communist cooperation in nine areas of global concern" including "weather modification."

1977 - "The Third Try at World Order" is published. Author Harlan Cleveland of the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies calls for "...changing Americans' attitudes and institutions" for "complete disarmament (except for international soldiers)" and "for individual entitlement to food, health and education."

July 1977 - Jeremiah Novak's article "The Trilateral Connection" appears in the "Atlantic Monthly": "For the third time in this century, a group of American schools, businessmen, and government officials is planning to fashion a New World Order..."

April 1978 - The U.S. Department of the Army adds in its "Chaplain's Handbook of Religious Requirements" new religions which had become federally recognized and which could be legally practiced on all military bases throughout the world. These "new" religions are Satanism, witchcraft and other occult religions.

April 1978 - President Jimmy Carter sends a telegram to the American Humanist Association: "Those who participate in the annual meeting of the American Humanist Association are furthering a movement that greatly enhances our way of life. The work of your organization in this area is, therefore, especially gratifying to me, and I welcome this opportunity to applaud your important accomplishments." [Why is a "born-again Christian" congratulating the humanists? The "Humanist Manifesto" signed by Lester Mondale, brother of Vice President Walter Mondale, declares: "Humanists believe that traditional theism, especially faith in the prayer-hearing God, assumed to love and care for persons, to hear and understand prayers, and to be able to do something about them, is an unproved and outmoded faith. No deity will save us; we must save ourselves."] [Damn straight! For once something I agree with them on! -Ed.]

1979 - Barry Goldwater, retiring Republican Senator from Arizona, publishes his autobiography "With No Apologies." He writes: "In my view the Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power - political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical. All this is to be done in the interest of creating a more peaceful, more productive world community."

1979 - Congress passes and President Jimmy Carter signs into law legislation establishing a Federal Department of Education - just as William Z. Foster, top leader of the Communist Party USA for 40 years, had called for.

Sept. 1980 - At a "Prelude to Victory" party given by Presidential candidate Ronald Reagan, Mr. Reagan is photographed with the place of honor, immediately to Reagan's right, given to none other than David Rockefeller, the leader of the CFR and the Trilateral Commission. Earlier in his campaign, Reagan had promised to shun the directions of David Rockefeller's Trilateral Commission. [CFR member William Casey became Reagan's campaign manager and was later appointed CIA Director. George Bush, member of both the Trilateral Commission and the CFR, was chosen as Ronald Reagan's running mate. Cabinet members included Secretary of State Alexander Haig (CFR), Treasury Secretary Donald Regan (CFR), Commerce Secretary Malcolm Baldridge (CFR), and Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger (Trilateral Commission). Ronald Reagan had also promised that he would cut spending and reduce the size of government, but once again rhetoric did not match reality. When Reagan took office the national debt stood at $935 billion. By the end of his second term it had almost tripled to $2,572 billion.]

1980 - Derek Shearer, a longtime member of the Institute for Policy Studies, publishes a book entitled "Economic Democracy" in which he predicts that a far left President will be elected in the 1990s. [Only one President has been elected in the 1990s - Bill Clinton. And he was Derek Shearer's college roommate in 1969!] The Institute for Policy Studies is "committed to socialism in America and sides with the Soviet Union on almost every important foreign policy issue."

April 25, 1982 - A full-page ad appears in major newspapers around the world proclaiming: "THE CHRIST IS NOW HERE." The advertising campaign coincides with the beginning of a speaking tour by one Benjamin Creme, a British theosophist. In various interviews and speeches, Creme explains that in speaking of "the Christ," he does not mean Jesus Christ but Lord Maitreya, the World Teacher. According to Creme, Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, and others are merely disciples of Maitreya. These Ascended Masters comprise an enlightened Spiritual Hierarchy which has guided humanity's evolution throughout history. He maintains that Lord Maitreya fulfills the expectations of all peoples. Maitreya is the Christ awaited by the Christians; to the Jews he is the Messiah, to the Moslems he is the Imam Mahdi, to the Buddhists he is the Fifth Buddha, to the Hindus he is Krishna. In the past, Creme tells us, these Ascended Masters have usually worked through disciples, but now they're among us and ready to help our world take its next step. [Benjamin Creme's publication "Share International" is now produced in association with the U.N.'s Department of Public Information.]

1983 - "The Humanist" publishes an essay which proclaims that "the battle for humankind's future must be waged in the public school classroom...between the rotting corpse of Christianity and the new faith of humanism...and humanism will emerge triumphant."

1984 - "The Power to Lead" is published. Author James McGregor Burns admits: "The framers of the U.S. Constitution have simply been too shrewd for us. They have outwitted us. They designed separate institutions that cannot be unified by mechanical linkages, frail bridges, tinkering. If we are to 'turn the founders upside down' - we must directly confront the constitutional structure they erected."

1985 - Norman Cousins, President of the World Future Society and honorary chairman of Planetary Citizens, says: "World government is coming. In fact, it is inevitable. No arguments for it or against it can change that fact."

Aug. 13, 1986 - Associated Press reports: "People scattered over much of the eastern United States reported a mysterious light in the night sky, and residents of Kentucky said they heard a boom and felt their houses shake. There were similar reports in other parts of the East. The mysterious light was witnessed by Americans from Michigan, Maine, Louisiana and Kentucky. Some people said they saw a 'great big ball of fire,' Clark County Kentucky Sheriff Larry Lawson said. The people said their homes shook and windows vibrated as if there had been an explosion or earthquake, but it was just for a few seconds. They said the whole sky lit up."

Aug. 14, 1986 - "USA Today" describes the events which occurred on the night of August 12: "A spectacular light show that pranced across the night sky east of the Mississippi had astronomers baffled."

1987 - Governor Bill Clinton of Arkansas visits Socialist Antonio Gramsci in Italy. When asked by an Italian newspaper if he is there to learn how to implement Socialist economic policies in the United States, Governor Clinton replies in the affirmative.

1987 - "The Secret Constitution and the Need for Constitutional Change" is sponsored in part by the Rockefeller Foundation. In it, author Arthur S. Miller says: "...a pervasive system of thought control exists in the United States...the citizenry is indoctrinated by employment of the mass media and the system of public education...people are told what to think about...a new vision is required to plan and manage the future, a global vision that will transcend national boundaries and eliminate the poison of nationalistic solutions...a new Constitution is necessary."

April 2, 1987 - Raymond English, Vice President of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, tells the National Advisory Council on Educational Research and Improvement that "critical thinking means not only learning how to think for oneself, but it also means learning how to subvert the traditional values in your society. You're not thinking 'critically' if you're accepting the values that mommy and daddy taught you. That's not 'critical.' "

July 3, 1987 - The "Arizona Republic" reports: "A sharp, startling boom jolted northern San Diego County during the night, but authorities said they don't know what caused the mysterious blast." Meteorologist Wilbur Shigehara of the National Weather Service is quoted as saying: "It sounded like a blast from a cannon. It was a big momentary shake. It is a mystery. Last year, we had several shakes like this. It happened three or four times a day for a week. We never found out what it was."

July 8, 1987 - The "Arizona Republic" reports: "For reasons unknown even to weather experts, the temperature at Greensberg, Kansas, jumped 20 degrees in ten minutes." Bill Ellis, an observer for the National Weather Service, says: "I've never seen anything like it, and I don't know anybody that ever has." [A secret experiment in weather modification?]

Aug. 11, 1987 - The U.S. Patent Office grants Patent Number 4,686,605 to Dr. Bernard Eastlund, a physicist who is a consultant for the Atlantic Richfield Company. Dr. Eastlund also does work for the Defense Department's ARPA (Advanced Research Projects Agency). The patent is for a technology to "change the weather by redirecting the very high wind patterns." By bombarding the jet stream with high-intensity electromagnetic waves, Dr. Eastlund is able to divert it and alter the weather patterns in a particular area.

Nov. 2, 1987 - Mikhail Gorbachev addresses the Soviet Politburo: "In October 1917, we parted with the old world, rejecting it once and for all. We are moving toward a new world, the world of Communism. We shall never turn off that road!" He further reassures his Communist colleagues: "Comrades, do not be concerned about all that you hear about glasnost and perestroika and democracy in the coming years. These are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant internal change within the Soviet Union other than for cosmetic purposes. Our purpose is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep."

June 1988 - Lord Maitreya mysteriously appears before an audience in Nairobi, Kenya. [Maitreya has appeared to several groups in different parts of the world since that time. When Maitreya appears, it is claimed that water in the area is "charged" - that it takes on miraculous healing powers. Benjamin Creme's attitude toward those who refuse to accept this figure as the world's Messiah is seen in this statement: "When men see Maitreya they will know that the time has come to choose; to go forward with Him into a future dazzling in its promise - or to cease to be."]

Dec. 7, 1988 - In an address to the U.N., Mikhail Gorbachev says: "World progress is only possible through a search for universal human consensus as we move forward to a new world order."

1989 - Dr. Shirley McCune, Senior Director of the Mid-continent Educational Laboratory, addresses the 1989 Governors' Conference on Education: "What's happening in America today...is a total transformation of our society. We have moved into a new era...I'm not sure we have really begun to comprehend...the tremendous amount of organizational restructuring and human resource development...What we have to do is build a future...The revolution in curriculum is that we no longer are teaching facts to children."

May 12, 1989 - At Texas A&M University, George Bush states that the United States is ready to welcome the Soviet Union "back into the world order."

1990 - In his book "The Keys of This Blood," Catholic priest Malachi Martin quotes Pope John Paul II as saying: "By the end of this decade we will live under the first One World Government that has ever existed in the society of nations...a government with absolute authority to decide the basic issues of survival. One world government is inevitable."

1990 - Peter Kawaja, in charge of security for a company called Product Ingredient Technology in Boca Raton, Florida, learns to his dismay that the factory he was led to believe was manufacturing a cherry flavoring is actually producing chemical/biological agents to be shipped to Iraq. He also discovers that this is being done with the full knowledge and consent of the FBI, the CIA and the Bush Administration. When he attempts to alert authorities, government agents seize the documents he has collected and his wife is killed. [Hence, the mysterious Gulf War Illness which the Federal government refuses to acknowledge.]

Sept. 11, 1990 - In an address to Congress entitled "Toward a New World Order," George Bush says: "The crisis in the Persian Gulf offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times a new world order can emerge. We are now in sight of a United Nations that performs as envisioned by its founders." [But who were the founders of the U.N. and what exactly were their intentions? At least 43 members of the U.S. delegation to the founding conference in San Francisco were also members of the CFR. The Secretary General at the U.N. founding conference in 1945 was a U.S. State Department official named Alger Hiss. It was later determined that Alger Hiss was a Soviet spy. He was convicted of perjury for lying about his pro-Soviet activities. And Hiss was not just an aberration. The U.N. has always chosen socialist one-worlders for leaders.]

Oct. 1, 1990 - In a U.N. address, President Bush speaks of the "...collective strength of the world community expressed by the U.N....an historic movement towards a new world order."

1991 - Brittney Settle, a ninth grader in Tennessee, is given a "zero" by her teacher for writing a research paper about the life of Jesus Christ. She is told that is "not an appropriate thing to do in a public school." Other students in that same class are allowed to write papers on reincarnation, magic and witchcraft.

1991 - President Bush praises the New World Order in a State of the Union Message: "What is at stake is more than one small country, it is a big idea - a new world order...to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind...based on shared principles and the rule of law...The illumination of a thousand points of light...The winds of change are with us now." [Theosophist Alice Bailey used that very same expression - "points of light" - in describing the process of occult enlightenment.]

1991 - On the eve of the Gulf War, General Brent Scowcroft, President Bush's National Security Advisor, proclaims: "A colossal event is upon us, the birth of a New World Order."

June 1991 - The CFR cosponsors an assembly, "Rethinking America's Security: Beyond Cold War to New World Order," attended by 65 prestigious members of government, labor, academia, media, military, and professions from nine countries.

July 1991 - The Southeastern World Affairs Institute discusses the New World Order in a program with topics: "Legal Structures for a New World Order" and "The United Nations: From Its Conception to a New World Order."

July 1991 - On a CNN program, former CIA Director Stansfield Turner (CFR), when asked about Iraq, responds: "We have a much bigger objective. We've got to look at the long run here. This is an example - the situation between the United Nations and Iraq - where the United Nations is deliberately intruding into the sovereignty of a sovereign nation...Now this is a marvelous precedent to be used in all countries of the world..."

Aug. 1991 - We are told that hard-liners in the Soviet Union have mounted a coup and that Mikhail Gorbachev has been arrested. The coup attempt fails, and this results in the apparent demise of the Soviet system and the installation of Boris Yeltsin. [It has since been learned that the "coup" was a sham designed to convince the West that Communism had fallen when in reality it had not. Mikhail Gorbachev had actually planned the staged coup three weeks before it happened. All the leaders of the coup have been pardoned and released.]

Oct. 29, 1991 - David Funderburk, former U.S. Ambassador to Romania, tells a North Carolina audience: "George Bush has been surrounding himself with people who believe in one-world government. They believe that the Soviet system and the American system are converging."

1992 - "The Twilight of Sovereignty" by former Citicorp Chairman Walter Wriston (CFR) is published, in which he claims: "A truly global economy will require compromises of national sovereignty. There is no escaping the system."

1992 - "The United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) Earth Summit" takes place in Rio de Janeiro, headed by Conference Secretary-General Maurice Strong. The main products of this summit are the "Biodiversity Treaty" and "Agenda 21," which the U.S. hesitates to sign because of opposition at home due to the threat to sovereignty and economics. The summit says the first world's wealth must be transferred to the third world. We are told: "Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorganization of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced." [Under the principles of Agenda 21, the Wildlands Project seeks to return 50% of the land in the U.S. to wilderness. Already 20 locations in this country have been designated U.N. World Heritage Sites and 47 locations in this country have been set aside as U.N. Biosphere Reserves. Control over these areas within U.S. borders has been turned over to the U.N.] The sinister intentions of the radical environmentalists are revealed in a statement by famous underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau, an attendee at the Earth Summit: "In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day."

May 21, 1992 - In an address to the Bilderberger organization meeting in Evian, France, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger declares: "Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government."

July 20, 1992 - "TIME" magazine publishes "The Birth of the Global Nation," by Strobe Talbott, Rhodes Scholar, roommate of Bill Clinton at Oxford University, CFR Director and Trilateralist, in which he writes: "Nationhood as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single global authority. 'Citizen of the world' will have assumed real meaning."

Aug. 21, 1992 - Near Ruby Ridge, Idaho, the home of Randy and Vicki Weaver and their four children has been under surveillance by the U.S. Marshals Service for 17 months. When the family dog begins barking, family friend Kevin Harris and the Weavers' 13-year-old son Sammy follow, thinking it is on the scent of a deer. Men in camouflage clothing (the marshals) shoot the dog, and Harris and Sammy return fire. Deputy Marshal William Degan and Sammy are killed in the exchange. Sammy is shot in the back as he runs for the house. The Marshals Service requests assistance from the FBI, which sends its Hostage Rescue Team (HRT) to the scene.

Aug. 22, 1992 - A HRT sniper, Lon Horiuchi, fires two shots: the first wounds Randy Weaver (though not seriously); the second kills Vicki Weaver as she holds her baby in her arms and seriously wounds Kevin Harris. [Randy Weaver's "violation"? He had allegedly sawed off a shotgun barrel a quarter of an inch too short. For that, his house was surrounded by Federal agents and his wife and son were killed.]

Aug. 31, 1992 - The 11-day siege ends when Randy Weaver surrenders to authorities. [A jury found Weaver innocent of the original firearms violation he was accused of.]

Sept. 29, 1992 - At a town hall meeting in Los Angeles, Trilateralist and former CFR president Winston Lord [later Assistant Secretary of State in the Clinton Administration] delivers a speech entitled "Changing Our Ways: America and the New World," in which he remarks: "To a certain extent, we are going to have to yield some of our sovereignty, which will be controversial at home. Under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), some Americans are going to be hurt as low-wage jobs are taken away."

Winter 1992-93 - The CFR's "Foreign Affairs" publishes "Empowering the United Nations," by U.N. Secretary General Boutros-Boutros Ghali, who asserts: "It is undeniable that the centuries-old doctrine of absolute and exclusive sovereignty no longer stands...Underlying the rights of the individual and the rights of peoples is a dimension of universal sovereignty that resides in all humanity...It is a sense that increasingly finds expression in the gradual expansion of international law...In this setting the significance of the United Nations should be evident and accepted."

1993 - A second Parliament of World Religions is held in Chicago on the 100th anniversary of the first. Like the first convention, this one seeks to join all the religions of the world into "one harmonious whole," but it wants to make them "merge back into their original element." Traditional beliefs of monotheistic religions such as Christianity are considered incompatible with individual "enlightenment" and must be drastically altered.

Feb. 28, 1993 - A force of 76 ATF agents becomes embroiled in a deadly firefight with Branch Davidians while attempting to present an arrest warrant on the sect leader David Koresh for alleged federal firearms and explosives violations. Four ATF agents are killed [Steve Willis, Robert William, Conway Lebleu, and Tod McKeehan [...] transferred from the Secret Service, where they were Clinton guards - to BATF prior to the assault - Killed by friendly fire. All died with gunshot wounds to the left temple. -Ed., from Slick's Skeleton's list] and 16 wounded during the shootout, while an estimated six Davidians are killed and an unknown number (including Koresh) injured. [Federal law strictly prohibits the use of military personnel and equipment against American citizens. An exception is allowed if drugs are involved. ATF agents simply lied in order to obtain the use of National Guard helicopters in their assault. They claimed there was a methamphetamine lab in the Branch Davidian compound. There was no evidence whatsoever of the existence of a methamphetamine lab in the Branch Davidian compound. There are no indications that the ATF ever attempted to serve their warrant or even announce who they were. They just emerged from stock trailers with guns blazing. At the same time that the ground assault began, helicopter gunships began firing at the Branch Davidian compound from above. The Branch Davidians did not begin returning fire until nine minutes after the ATF attack began. The ATF had also positioned snipers in a building some distance away from the Branch Davidian compound. They could not shoot at the Branch Davidians without firing over the heads of the attacking ATF agents. It is entirely possible that some of the ATF casualties were hit by their own men. Two of the ATF agents who were killed in the raid had entered a second story window of the Branch Davidian home. A third ATF agent then fired directly into the window his comrades had just entered.]

April 19, 1993 - Following a 51-day siege, military tanks driven by FBI personnel begin punching holes in the Branch Davidian complex to insert a tearing agent and end the standoff. Shortly after noon, fire breaks out within the building and it is rapidly engulfed in flames. The remains of at least 74 individuals, including 21 children under the age of 16, are recovered from the ruins, some of whom had died of gunshot wounds. [The CS gas the FBI introduced into the Branch Davidian compound had been previously banned from international warfare. The U.S. couldn't have used it against Saddam Hussein, yet it was used on women and children at Waco. The manufacturer of the gas had quit selling it to Israel because they had used it against Palestinians in their homes, and several children had been killed by it. The manufacturer had warned that the gas should not be used in a closed space because of its potentially lethal consequences. The gas is also highly flammable. Paul Gray, the "independent" arson investigator who determined that the Branch Davidians were responsible for the fire, was a former ATF employee, and his wife was a current ATF employee - hardly an unbiased third party. In Congressional hearings, Attorney General Janet Reno claimed the government had to act because children were being abused. This raises an interesting question: Why was the ATF involved at all? Child abuse cases are not within the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms. Kiri Jewell, the 14-year-old girl whose tear-jerking testimony convinced many that the raid was justified, was not even with the Branch Davidians at the time she alleges that David Koresh abused her. She was living with her mother and grandmother in California.]

July 18, 1993 - CFR member and Trilateralist Henry Kissinger writes in the "Los Angeles Times" concerning NAFTA: "What Congress will have before it is not a conventional trade agreement but the architecture of a new international system...a first step toward a new world order."

July 20, 1993 - White House Counsel Vincent Foster is found dead in Ft. Marcy Park under mysterious circumstances. He had been shot in the head. The official ruling is suicide. FBI Director William Sessions is fired by President Clinton only hours before Foster turns up dead. [In order to get to the location where his body was found, Foster would have had to walk 700 feet through a heavily wooded park. Yet no soil was found on his shoes. FBI agents were prevented from investigating Foster's office by Administration officials until after they had removed several files. Vincent Scalice, an expert witness who has investigated thousands of homicides during his 35 years as a homicide investigator for the New York City Police Department, observes: "In my experience, I have never seen a case so poorly handled and investigated, especially since there is so much evidence of foul play." Vince Foster had been a partner with Hillary Clinton in the Rose Law Firm.]

Oct. 30, 1993 - "Washington Post" ombudsman Richard Harwood does an op-ed piece about the role of the CFR's media members: "Their membership is an acknowledgment of their ascension into the American ruling class where they do not merely analyze and interpret foreign policy for the United States; they help make it."

Feb. 1994 - A U.S. District Court jury in San Antonio, Texas, finds 11 members of the Branch Davidian sect innocent of murder and conspiracy charges at Waco.

May 3, 1994 - President Bill Clinton signs Presidential Decision Directive 25 and then declares it Classified so the American people can't see what it says. [The summary of PDD-25 issued to members of Congress tells us that it authorizes the President to turn over control of U.S. military units to U.N. command.]

May 10, 1994 - U.S. Marines stationed at Twenty-Nine Palms, California, are given a survey in which they are asked if they would be willing to swear to a code which declares: "I am a United Nations fighting person." They are also asked in the survey if they would be willing to fire on American citizens.

Sept. 1994 - The U.S. Senate comes very close to ratifying the Convention on Biological Diversity which came out of the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 and was signed by President Clinton in 1993. At the last minute, senators become aware of its outrageous agenda to subjugate most of humankind to "sacred nature." The U.N. objectives this treaty fulfills include: "make nature worship a State Religion," "classify people as the enemy," and "create areas devoid of human presence." The treaty itself is less than 30 pages long - a loosely worded, rambling conglomeration of "legalese" and statements of principle. But the implementing protocols would not be written until after the Senate ratifies the treaty! In effect, Congress would be signing a blank check. Worse yet, the enabling protocols are to be written by Non-Governmental Organizations - radical environmental and socialist organizations.

Sept. 23, 1994 - The globalists realize that as more and more people begin to wake up to what's going on, they have only a limited amount of time in which to implement their policies. Speaking at the United Nations Ambassadors' dinner, David Rockefeller remarks: "This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long." [Notice that he did not question if world order would come - only whether it would arrive peacefully.] He believes: "We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order."

March 1995 - U.N. delegates meet in Copenhagen, Denmark, to discuss various methods for imposing global taxes on the people of the world.

April 19, 1995 - An explosion devastates the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, resulting in the deaths of 168 people. [Both former FBI agent Ted Gunderson and Air Force explosives expert General Benton Partin say that an ammonium-nitrate/fuel oil bomb in a truck parked in front of the building could not possibly have caused the extensive structural damage that resulted. There had to be explosives attached to the columns inside the building. Some of the debris from the Murrah Building was blown toward the truck. Dr. Raymon Brown, a geophysicist for the Oklahoma Geological Survey, reports seismic data for that date which indicate that there were actually two explosions about 12 seconds apart. Televised video taken shortly after the bombing shows unexploded devices from the building being hauled away by the bomb squad. Edye Smith, whose two children were killed in the Murrah daycare, asked the question on national TV, "Where was the ATF?" All of their employees survived because they were told not go in to work that day. After she asked that question, she says government agents told her, "Keep your mouth shut, don't talk about it." Lester Martz, in charge of the Dallas ATF office, claims that an ATF agent and a DEA agent were riding in an elevator in the building, that after the blast their elevator free fell 50 feet and that they escaped from the elevator and rescued several people. Yet elevator service personnel say that no one was in the elevators, none of the elevators free fell and the doors of all the elevators were jammed shut by the explosion. They say that if anyone had free fallen 50 feet they would have, at the very least, broken their ankles. When asked if he had suspected that something might happen on April 19th, John Magaw, Director of the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, replied that he had, and he stated that all BATF facilities across the country had been notified to be on the alert. When BATF agents in Oklahoma City were asked that same question, they replied that they had no idea anything would happen on that date. Clearly, somebody is not telling the truth. Immediately after the bombing, the FBI launched a massive manhunt for "John Doe No. 2." Now we are expected to believe that he never existed. Witnesses who say they saw John Doe No. 2 were not allowed to testify before the grand jury which indicted Timothy McVeigh.]

May 1995 - Incredibly, Larry Potts, the FBI's man in charge of the Ruby Ridge and Waco operations, is promoted to become the number two man at the Bureau.

Sept. 1995 - "Popular Science" magazine describes a top secret U.S. Navy installation called HAARP (High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) in the state of Alaska. This project beams powerful radio energy into the earth's upper atmosphere. One of the goals of the program is to develop the capability of "manipulating local weather" using the techniques developed by Bernard Eastlund. [The program has been underway since 1990.]

Sept. 27-Oct. 1, 1995 - "The State of the World Forum" takes place, sponsored by the Gorbachev Foundation, located at the Presidio in San Francisco. [It is important to realize that Mikhail Gorbachev established his foundation in 1991, before the coup attempt which eventually led to his "fall" from office and the breakup of the Soviet Union.] Foundation President Jim Garrison chairs the meeting, which includes Mikhail Gorbachev, George Bush, Britain's Margaret Thatcher, Canadian occultist Maurice Strong, media mogul Ted Turner, Microsoft wizard Bill Gates and others. Conversation centers around the oneness of mankind and the coming global government. However, the term "global governance" is used in place of "new world order" since the latter has become a lightning rod for opponents of global government. The mission statement issued by the conference organizers is direct and revealing: "The State of the World Forum will focus on the fundamental challenges and opportunities as we enter the next phase of human development. It is being held in the belief that at this momentous juncture in history, we are giving birth to the first global civilization."

1996 - The United Nations' 420-page report "Our Global Neighborhood" is published. It outlines a plan for "global governance," calling for an international "Conference on Global Governance" in 1998 for the purpose of submitting to the world the necessary treaties and agreements for ratification by the year 2000.

March 1, 1996 - The U.S. Marshals Service presents its highest award for valor to the five surviving deputy marshals involved in the deadly Ruby Ridge siege, prompting sharp criticism from two members of Idaho's Congressional delegation: Senator Larry Craig comments, "For the U.S. Marshals Service to say the Ruby Ridge incident is worthy of special commendation is sure to provoke outrage from many Americans, and it should." Representative Helen Chenoweth remarks, "Since investigations by both Congress and the Justice Department raised significant questions about the activities of all federal agencies involved in the Ruby Ridge operation, the U.S. Marshals Service should be trying to sort out what went wrong and ensuring that such deadly mishaps don't happen again, rather than handing out awards."

May 1996 - At the J. T. Lambert Intermediate School in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, sixth-grade girls are forced to strip and undergo a vaginal exam without their parents' knowledge or consent. One girl tries to call her mother, but school officials refuse to let her do so. Some girls begin to cry. Others attempt to crawl out the windows and escape. The school nurse tells them they are a bunch of babies.

May 1, 1996 - A German airbase is established at Holloman Field near Alamogordo, New Mexico. This is the first time in U.S. history that a foreign nation has been allowed to set up a permanent military installation on American soil.

June 1996 - Episcopal Bishop William Swing moves to bring all religions of the world into a single organization called the UR (United Religions). The UR would be the spiritual counterpart of the UN. Swing plans to create a UR charter by June 1997 and to establish its headquarters in San Francisco by the year 2000. Christian denominations that say one can only come to God through Jesus Christ are considered "intolerant" and must be forced to acknowledge that there are other paths to God.

June 3-4, 1996 - The people of Pittsburgh are awakened by the sounds of low flying helicopters and gunfire. Black clad soldiers rapel out of the helicopters terrifying residents within a 20 mile radius of downtown Pittsburgh and prompting frantic phone calls to local media outlets. [Pittsburgh was not alone in this experience. Similar military exercises have been conducted in 21 U.S. cities.]

Fall 1996 - "State of the World Forum II" takes place, again in San Francisco. This time many of the sessions are closed to the press.

Oct. 1996 - Citizens of Australia are ordered to immediately take their semi-automatic firearms to local police stations. No exceptions are allowed. They are warned that if they refuse, they will be tracked down and punished with prison time. [The people of Australia are often used as New World Order guinea pigs. What happens in Australia is almost always done later in America.]

Oct. 10, 1996 - Gordon Novel, a close friend of William Colby (the former CIA Director who supposedly "drowned"), is on the "Freedom Forum" radio program with host Don Wiederman. Novel had worked for the White House as a special consultant on intelligence. He states: "Ruby Ridge was a deliberate operation to start the assault on the right wing. They are using gun confiscation and assaults on religion as a preliminary set-up for a global police state by the year 2000." He says that killing the Branch Davidians was the original intention at Waco under what was called the D Plan. He issues a chilling warning: "Colby was of the opinion that these guys were hell-bent on creating a condition that would erode all of our constitutional freedoms. Ultimately, that will happen when they start using what we call the 'pocket nuke,' a miniature Israeli-designed briefcase-sized nuclear weapon that can be left in an apartment building somewhere. It will take out about 20 square blocks. They would blame it on the Muslims, claiming that they had stolen Russian artillery shells. This would effectively move us into a condition of martial law under the United Nations."

Jan. 1, 1997 - A new Secretary General of the United Nations begins his five-year term. His name is Kofi Annan, age 58. He's from the nation of Ghana in West Africa. Kofi Annan is an insider, a longtime U.N. official. He's been in the employ of the United Nations for more than 30 years, so he's well acquainted with U.N. objectives and methods. Just prior to being elected Secretary General, Kofi Annan was the Undersecretary General for Peace Keeping Operations, so he's been heavily involved in the U.N.'s efforts to establish its own standing army. [In order to placate critics of the U.N. in the United States, Annan has promised to reform the United Nations. He has placed occultist Maurice Strong in charge of "reform."]

Jan. 1997 - The Federal government announces that COSCO (Chinese Ocean Shipping Company) has been awarded a $138 million taxpayer-subsidized loan guarantee and will be allowed to build ships in a Mobile, Alabama, shipyard.

March 1997 - In Benjamin Creme's "The Emergence" newsletter, readers are alerted that the coming of Lord Maitreya, the supposed New Age Christ, is at hand: "Stand ready to see the Great Lord, for the time of His emergence is nigh. Respond quickly to His call. End forever the hatred and intolerance of men."

March 12, 1997 - American citizens assemble at a hearing of the Long Beach Harbor Commission to voice their opposition to the Clinton Administration's leasing of a port facility to COSCO (the company owned by Communist China). [The Clinton Administration had closed down the U.S. Navy facility at Long Beach, California, earlier this decade as a result of defense cutbacks. Now they want to lease this facility to Red China! This is the same regime that had threatened to nuke Los Angeles. U.S. Customs officials would only be allowed to inspect one out of every eight containers the Chinese bring into this port. Already, COSCO has been implicated in an attempt to smuggle 2,000 AK-47 assault rifles through Oakland to arm criminal gangs.]

March 13, 1997 - Ten thousand Arizona citizens see strange lights in the night sky over Phoenix. Several capture the phenomenon on home video cameras. The lights are arranged in a V shape over a mile wide. [Police and military claim nothing unusual happened that night and nothing showed up on radar. A Canadian researcher, the late Serge Monast, reported that through "Project Bluebeam," NASA had developed the capability of projecting three-dimensional holographic images into the earth's atmosphere. Using this technology, it would be possible to fake a UFO invasion and convince the people of the world that we must unite in a one-world government in order to combat this alien menace.] [This may indeed have been an experiment in faking UFO's, but the technology was more pedestrian. A National Guard unit visiting from out of state was using parachute flares to illuminate a flight zone, and they were arrayed in the striking manner described. -Ed.]

March 19, 1997 - During a session of the House National Security Committee, Representative Duncan Hunter (R-CA) addresses the fact that Red China has now obtained control of the Panama Canal. A subsidiary of COSCO has entered into agreements to lease the "anchor ports" - Balboa on the Pacific end of the Canal and Cristobal on the Atlantic end. [Farewell, Monroe Doctrine; hello, New World Order.]

March 21, 1997 - Three Red Chinese naval vessels - two destroyers and a supply ship - dock at the North Island Naval Air Station in San Diego Bay for five days. [The warm reception the Chinese received was in marked contrast to the chilly confrontation of one year earlier, when U.S. naval carriers were sent to the Taiwan Strait in response to Red Chinese efforts to intimidate the Free Chinese during a presidential election. The mainland regime condemned the U.S. action as an infringement of Chinese "sovereignty."]

June 5, 1997 - In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, FBI Director Louis Freeh admits: "We are potentially the most dangerous agency in the country if we are not scrutinized carefully." [In the wake of Ruby Ridge, Waco, the Richard Jewell debacle and the mess at the FBI crime lab, that statement takes on especially ominous tones.]

May 1998 - President Bill Clinton issues Presidential Decision Directive 63, which provides that, in the event of an emergency beyond the capabilities of the private sector to handle, "the full authorities, capabilities and resources of the government including law enforcement, regulation, foreign intelligence and defense preparedness shall be available, as appropriate, to ensure that critical infrastructure protection is achieved and maintained." This plan is to be put in place "no later than the year 2000."

May 14, 1998 - President Bill Clinton issues Executive Order 13083, amounting to a complete inversion of the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (which states that all powers not specifically granted to the Federal government are to be retained by the States or by the people). In essence, EO 13083 claims the authority to dispense with constitutional limitations, the separation of powers and the reserved powers of individual states when the President or his subordinates in the executive branch believe such action is "necessary." [For the Clintonites, "federalism" is defined by arbitrary power in the central government, rather than diffusion of power among various complementary governments and limitation of all government power through a written constitution.]

June 17, 1998 - The Transportation Department's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issues a directive to implement driver's license-ID provisions passed by Congress. This directive contemplates requiring all states to submit certificates of compliance to the Department of Transportation by September 30, 2000. The directive also "urges states to adopt as many security features as possible," including biometric devices - like fingerprints and retina-scan data. Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) elaborates on this heavy-handed state of affairs: "Under the current state of the law, the citizens of states which have driver's licenses that do not conform to the federal standards by October 1, 2000, will find themselves essentially stripped of their ability to participate in life as we know it. On that date, Americans will not be able to get a job, open a bank account, apply for Social Security or Medicare, exercise their Second Amendment rights, or even take an airplane flight, unless they can produce a state-issued ID that conforms to the federal specifications." [Many reasons have been advanced as justification for a national ID system - assurance of health care, tracking deadbeat dads, fighting illegal immigration. But no matter how noble or politically attractive the cause, no federal law or regulation is justifiable on moral or other grounds if it is unconstitutional in the first place. Americans ignore at their peril the promulgation of national IDs. A national ID has always been a cornerstone of totalitarianism. The relentless push for a national ID brings us ever closer to the day when "no man might buy or sell, except that he had the mark of the beast." (Rev. 13:17)]

July 15, 1998 - In a "Dear Colleague" letter about Executive Order 13083 to his fellow congressmen, Rep. Mac Collins (R-GA) warns, "It seems clear to me that President Clinton intends to usurp and utilize the powers reserved by the Constitution to Congress and to the States as well...If the Federal executive branch were granted the power to determine when there is a 'need' for uniform standards or to dictate what State-level regulations are 'necessary,' then there would be little reason for State law-making bodies or the U.S. Congress to exist at all."

July 17, 1998 - In his "Between the Lines" column, Joseph Farah, editor of the popular internet newspaper WorldNetDaily, argues that the Y2K bug is a major problem but warns that the government may use this problem as an excuse to consolidate dictatorial powers. Farah fears that President Clinton may audaciously attempt to accomplish such a power grab prior to the expiration of his term. Farah asks, "Is it not possible...with all we know about the character of Bill Clinton, that he would attempt to turn such a crisis [as Y2K] into an opportunity?" [The Millenium Bug could provide an ambitious President with an opportunity to seize dictatorial powers. Such a notion seems plausible when one considers the extent to which the federal government has already exceeded the boundaries of the Constitution, the direction in which we continue to head and the quickening of the pace.]

July 17, 1998 - Gathered for a conference in Rome, 120 nations approve an International Criminal Court (ICC). The U.S. is one of only seven nations voting against the statute. The ICC is to become binding upon every individual on earth, once it is ratified by only 60 nations! [Under the ICC treaty, Americans would be faced with judges from totalitarian regimes, an unrestrained global prosecutor, no right to confront accusers, no protection against double jeopardy, no presumption of innocence until proven guilty and prosecution for vaguely defined "crimes." The definition of "genocide" includes "causing mental harm." An individual could be hauled before an international tribunal, convicted of genocide and imprisoned for years in a foreign land for merely expressing criticism of a lifestyle which he finds morally reprehensible!]

Nov. 1998 - Congress discovers that President Clinton has buried seed money for a U.N. standing army in a huge State Department funding bill. [If this U.N. standing army is created, American troops could be subject to: 1) Taking an oath to uphold the U.N. Charter, not the U.S. Constitution. 2) Serving under incompetent foreign commanders. 3) Fighting and dying in some far-away land in a U.N. war which does nothing to protect American security.]

Nov. 30, 1998 - The National Instant Check System (NICS) for the purchase of any firearm from a dealer goes into effect. A purchaser is required to state what type of firearm - handgun, rifle or shotgun - he is purchasing. [If an individual is found to be legally eligible to purchase a firearm, what difference does it make what type of firearm it is? When gun grabbers on the state or federal level achieve their oft-stated goal of banning handguns, they will know immediately who has them. The FBI has announced that it will retain records of firearm purchases for 18 months - clearly contrary to federal law, which requires that information on successful firearm purchases immediately be destroyed. Hence, we have the nation's premier law enforcement agency declaring that they intend to flagrantly violate the law! Despite claims that they only want to protect children and enhance public safety, the ultimate objective of gun control proponents is to completely disarm American civilians. They realize they will be unable to accomplish this in one fell swoop, so they have adopted a piecemeal approach - restricting firearms ownership a little at a time, repealing the Second Amendment on the installment plan. This is not merely the paranoid imagining of "gun nuts." Advocates of gun control have stated as much. Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis declared, "I do not believe in people owning guns, only police and military. I am going to do everything I can to disarm this state." Michael Stephenson of Stop Firearm Violence used the school shooting in Jonesboro, Arkansas, to disclose his real intention: "[this incident should] once and for all erase the differentiating we do between the machine gun, a .38 special and a shotgun. There's only one enemy and that is the gun, period."]
