In a speech last Wednesday to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton effectively admitted that she has often been to the CFR�s mother ship in New York, but is happy that she now only has to travel to a CFR outpost in Washington, DC, to get her orders.

According to the official transcript, Clinton said, �I am delighted to be here in these new headquarters. I have been often to, I guess, the mother ship in New York City, but it�s good to have an outpost of the Council right here down the street from the State Department. We get a lot of advice from the Council, so this will mean I won�t have as far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future.�

She went on to say, �Today we must acknowledge two inescapable facts that define our world. First, no nation can meet the world�s challenges alone. The issues are too complex. Too many players are competing for influence, from rising powers to corporations to criminal cartels, from NGOs to al Qaeda, from state-controlled media to individuals using Twitter.

�Second, most nations worry about the same global threats -- from non-proliferation to fighting disease to counter-terrorism, but also face very real obstacles for reasons of history, geography, ideology, and inertia. They face these obstacles and they stand in the way of turning commonality of interest into common action.�

She concluded with, �More than 230 years ago, Thomas Paine said, �We have it within our power to start the world over again.� Today, in a new and very different era, we are called upon to use that power. I believe we have the right strategy, the right priorities, the right policies, we have the right president, and we have the American people, diverse, committed, and open to the future.�

Clinton�s comments are yet another step towards getting people to accept that, regardless of where you are from, there are organisations and families, such as the Rockefellers� and Rothschilds� that are more powerful than the government of your country. Once that is accepted, it is, theoretically, a smaller step to accepting global governance by a New World Order (NWO).

Nietzsche wrote that �knowledge is potential power.� We have to use our knowledge to regain our power, but too many people are too apathetic to try. Simply feed them mind rotting TV and drip feed them carefully selected news of current events and they will sit fat, dumb and happy while their freedom is taken away from them bit by bit.

The NWO is not even trying to cover things up anymore. They are obviously of the opinion that people are either unwilling or unable to do anything other than go along with whatever the NWO chooses to say or do. And now that more people are experiencing unemployment, poverty, homelessness, hunger and illness, the NWO are confident that statements, such as those made by Hillary Clinton, will soon be forgotten as people concentrate on their own problems.

In 1939, Clarence Streit, a New York Times correspondent at the League of Nations, published his work Union Now. As a proposal for a federal union of the leading democracies, Union Now advocated the gradual growth of a democratic world federation as a means of forestalling the possibility of future wars. Streit offered the federal union idea as a method of defending the free world against these totalitarian regimes with an expectation that they could eventually become integrated members of the union once they were replaced with democratic governments rooted in freedom. Thus, from the very beginning, the mission of the Association to Unite the Democracies (AUD) has been to defend, extend and sustain individual liberty and peace.

Here is what George Orwell had to say about Streit�s Union Now:

  • . . . Briefly, what Mr Streit suggests is that the democratic nations, starting with fifteen which he names, should voluntarily form themselves into a union . . . similar to the United States, with a common government, common money, and complete internal free trade . . . Later, other states could be admitted to the Union when and if they �proved themselves worthy.� It is implied all along that the state of peace and prosperity existing within the Union would be so enviable that everyone else would soon be pining to join it.

  • . . . they contain within their own territories everything they need, and Mr. Streit is probably right in claiming that their combined strength would be so great as to make any attack on them hopeless . . .

  • . . . . Why then does one see at a glance that this scheme has something wrong with it? What is there about it that smells?

  • . . . . What it smells of, as usual, is hypocrisy and self-righteousness. �

The CFR is testing the water and after a few months, it will agree, okay, we got away with that, now for the next step . . .

Who is the Grand Puppet Master of the NWO?

Will the real Keyser S�ze please stand up?
