Dear Friend of America's Survival,
Former FBI agent Dan Smoot's 1962 book, The Invisible Government, is absolutely necessary to understanding the Council on Foreign Relations, the CFR. Referring to the CFR and other tax-exempt organiations, Smoot said, "I am convinced that the objective of this invisible government is to convert America into a socialist state and then make it a unit in a one-world socialist system."
That's when we had FBI agents who understood Marxism and the use of Marxist front groups.
CNS News has a reminder that it was at a meeting of the Council on Foreign Relations in 2018 when Joe Biden talked about his 2016 visit, as sitting vice president, to Ukraine. Biden said:
And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t. So they said they had — they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to — or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, you have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said — I said, call him. I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.
Top State Department official and communist spy Alger Hiss was a CFR member, as was Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein also belonged to the Trilateral Commission.
The Washington Post on September 10, 2019, reported:
"In his 15 years as a member of the prestigious Council on Foreign Relations, Jeffrey Epstein attended only two events — a dinner for big donors in 1998 and a 2002 conversation with Paul O’Neill when he was U.S. treasury secretary during the George W. Bush administration. But Epstein had given the council $350,000 over a decade of membership in the group’s top-level donor category, the Chairman’s Circle, and council leaders now acknowledge that they never discussed what to do about Epstein’s donations after he pleaded guilty to sex crimes in 2008."
CFR President Richard Haass was reported to have written a memo to council members last month, saying, “I deeply regret that his conviction did not automatically trigger a review of his membership status."
The Post added:
Epstein was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, whose 5,000 members include many big names in the business, government and media elites, from 1995 until 2009, at least two years after he came under investigation for sexual abuse of minors, according to council donor lists and Haass’s memo.
What kind of membership standards does this organization have?
A history of the CFR, published in 1996, was titled, "Continuing the Inquiry.The Council on Foreign Relations from 1921 to 1996." It said:
"Allen Dulles returned from the wartime OSS [predecessor of the CIA] to assume a leading role in the Council’s business, resuming his law practice at Sullivan and Cromwell for an interim between his secret work in Switzerland and a career at the soon to-be Central Intelligence Agency. Dulles was a Republican; working alongside him in the Council was Alger Hiss, a newly elected member sympathetic to the left wing of the Democratic Party, but a protégé of the older Dulles brother, John Foster. "
A footnote called Hiss "one of the most visible targets of the red-baiters" and "controversial," saying he was "quietly dropped from Council membership, for successive years’ nonpayment of annual dues." The footnote says Richard Nixon was also dropped from the rolls for nonpayment of dues. But Nixon was Hiss's accuser, documenting his communist espionage activities. Nixon knew a lot about communist infiltration of the government, including the CIA.
But then came Watergate. One of Washington Post executive editor Ben Bradlee’s reporters on the Watergate story was Carl Bernstein, whose parents were members of the Soviet-controlled Communist Party.
