How The Council on Foreign Relations Shapes Your Reality World
The CFR’s Psychological Strategy Board aka The Operations Coordination Board aka The SPEciaL Group
The Council on Foreign Relations was formally established in Paris in 1919 along with its British Counterpart the Royal Institute of International Affairs. The Council on Foreign Relations wasn’t incorporated as the American branch until July 29, 1921 in New York. The Council on Foreign Relations was founded by a group of American and British imperialists and racists intent on ruling the world. Many of the American members were American intelligence officers that belonged to the first American Intelligence Agency called, “THE INQUIRY.” The British members were British Intelligence Agents.
The Council on Foreign Relations and the Royal Institute of International Affairs works by controlling public opinion. They go to great lengths to keep the identity of their groups secret. They learn the likes and dislikes of influential people, who they surround and manipulate into acting in the best interest of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Royal Institute of International Affairs. The Council on Foreign Relations, and Royal Institute of International Affairs are adept at using the media to create massive psycho-political operations used to manipulate public opinion. The psycho-political operations are often designed to create tensions between different groups. The object is to keep the world in a state of perpetual tension and warfare to maximize CFR/RIIA munition, medicine, media, energy, and food business profits.
The Council on Foreign Relations runs the State Department and the CIA. The Council on Foreign Relations has placed 100 of their members in every Presidential Administration since Woodrow Wilson. They work together to misinform and disinform the President to act in the best interest of the Council on Foreign Relations, and not the best interest of the American people. At least seven Presidents (Eisenhower, Ford, Carter, Bush, and Clinton, Bush Jr. and Obama ) have been members of the Council on Foreign Relations. The Council on Foreign Relations has packed every Supreme court with Council on Foreign Relations insiders. Three CFR members (Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, and Sandra Day O’Connor) sit on the supreme court. The CFR’s British Counterpart is the Royal Institute of International Affairs. The members of these groups profit by creating tension and hate. Their targets include British and American citizens.
The 100 CFR members that surround the president are known as the “Secret Team.” The “Secret Team” helps carry out psycho-political operations scripted by CFR members in the state department and the Intelligence Organizations. The psycho-political operations are coordinated by a group of Council on Foreign Relations members called the Special Group. The Special Group evolved from the Psychological Strategy Board.
On 20 June 1951 Harry S. Truman signed a directive establishing the Psychological Strategy Board. The directive read,
The Secretary of State
The Secretary of Defense
The Director of Central Intelligence
It is the purpose of this directive to authorize and provide for the more effective planning, coordination and conduct, within the framework of approved national policies, of psychological operations. There is hereby established a Psychological Strategy Board responsible, within the purposes and terms of this directive, for the formulation and promulgation, as guidance to the departments and agencies responsible for psychological operations, of over-all national psychological objectives, policies and programs, and for the coordination and evaluation of the national psychological effort.
The Board will report to the National Security Council on the Board’s activities and on its evaluation of the national psychological operations, including implementation of approved objectives, policies, and programs by the departments and agencies concerned. The Board shall be composed of:
a. The Undersecretary of State, the Deputy Secretary of Defense, and the Director of Central Intelligence, or, in their absence, their appropriate designees
b. An appropriate representative of the head of each such other department or agency of the Government as may, from time to time, be determined by the Board
The Board shall designate one of its members as Chairman. A representative of the Joint Chiefs of Staff shall sit with the Board as its principal military adviser in order that the Board may ensure that its objectives, policies and programs shall be related to approved plans for military operations…”
The director and architect of, the Psychological Strategy Board was Gordon Gray:
• Henry Kissinger was Gray’s consultant
• Kissinger was also the paid political consultant to Rockefeller family
• Gray, Kissinger, and Rockefeller were members of the Council on Foreign Relations
• Gray served in the administrations of Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford
• Gordon Gray was heir to the R. J. Reynolds tobacco fortune and President of the University of North Carolina
• Gray was a broadcast and publication media specialist
• Gray was instrumental in keeping the uniformed electorate uninformed
Eisenhower signed Presidential Executive Order 10483 replacing the Psychological Strategy board with the Operations Coordinating Board
The Operations Coordinating Board was composed of,
(1) the Under Secretary of State, who shall represent the Secretary of State and shall be the chairman of the Board
(2) the Deputy Secretary of Defense, show shall represent the Secretary of Defense
(3) the Director of the Foreign Operations Administration
(4) the Director of Central Intelligence
(5) a representative of the President to be designated by the President
(6) The Undersecretary or corresponding official of any Presidential agency that has been assigned responsibilities for implementation of national security policy
(7) the Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs
(8) the Director of the United States Information Agency
On February 19, 1961, President John F. Kennedy issued a Statement abolishing the Operations Coordinating Board.
No President ever wrote or signed an Executive order establishing the Special Group. No President had a way of abolishing the Special Group. The Special Group was not established by Executive Order, it established itself, this was illegal. When Kennedy killed the Operations Coordinating Board, the Special Group operated as normal without the designated Presidential representative.
The Special Group is alive and well today. It consists of,
• the Secretary of State
• the Secretary of Defense
• the Director of The CIA
none of which are elected officials
The only way to abolish this ad hoc committee is to abolish,
• the Department of Defense
• the Central Intelligence Agency
• the Department of State
The Joint Chiefs of Staff have defined psychological operations (PSYOPS) as those that:
“include psychological warfare and, in addition, encompass those political, military, economic and ideological actions planned and conducted to create in neutral or friendly foreign groups the emotions, attitudes, or behavior to support achievement of national objectives.” Another proposal “develops the concept of ’strategic psychological operations’ as aimed at influencing and shaping decision-makers’ power to govern or control their followers.”
Truth be told, the American people are among the groups being targeted and controlled.
Council on Foreign Relations members in,
• the State Department
• the National Security Council
• the Central Intelligence Agency
• the Department of Defense,
continue to control the lives of the American people through well planned psycho-political operations. These psychological operations rob American citizens of the present, by creating false reality worlds. These false reality worlds are created to trick the American public into acting not in their own best interest but in the best interest of a group of subtle fascists intent on creating a one world order under their control.
On September 12, 1939, the Council on Foreign Relations began to take control of the Department of State. On that day Hamilton Fish Armstrong, Editor of Foreign Affairs, and Walter H. Mallory, Executive Director of the Council on Foreign Relations, paid a visit to the State Department. The Council proposed forming groups of experts to proceed with research in the general areas of Security, Armament, Economic, Political, and Territorial problems. The State Department accepted the proposal. The project (1939-1945) was called Council on Foreign Relations War and Peace Studies. Hamilton Fish Armstrong was Executive director.
In February 1941 the CFR officially became part of the State Department. The Department of State established the Division of Special Research. It was organized just like the Council on Foreign Relations War and Peace Studies project. It was divided into Economic, Political, Territorial, and Security Sections. The Research Secretaries serving with the Council groups were hired by the State Department to work in the new division. These men also were permitted to continue serving as Research Secretaries to their respective Council groups. Leo Pasvolsky was appointed Director of Research.
In 1942 the relationship between the Department of State and the Council on Foreign Relations strengthened again. The Department organized an Advisory Committee on Postwar Foreign Policies. The Chairman was Secretary Cordell Hull, the vice chairman, Under Secretary Sumner Wells, Dr. Leo Pasvolsky ( director of the Division of Special Research) was appointed Executive Officer. Several experts were brought in from outside the Department. The outside experts were Council on Foreign Relations War and Peace Studies members:
• Hamilton Fish Armstrong
• Isaiah Bowman
• Benjamin V. Cohen
• Norman H. Davis
• James T. Shotwell
In total there were 362 meetings of the War and Peace Studies groups. The meetings were held at Council on Foreign Relations headquarters — the Harold Pratt house, Fifty-Eight East Sixty-Eighth Street, New York City. The Council’s wartime work was confidential. In 1944 members of the Council on Foreign Relations The War and Peace Studies Political Group were invited to be active members at the Dumbarton Oaks conference on world economic arrangements. In 1945 these men and members of Britain’s Royal Institute of International Affairs were active at the San Francisco conference which ensured the establishment of the United Nations.
In 1947 Council on Foreign Relations members George Kennan, Walter Lippmann, Paul Nitze, Dean Achenson, and Walter Krock took part in a psycho-political operation forcing the Marshall Plan on the American public. The PSYOP included a “anonymous” letter credited to a Mr. X, which appeared in the Council on Foreign Relations magazine FOREIGN AFFAIRS. The letter opened the door for the CFR controlled Truman administration to take a hard line against the threat of Soviet expansion. George Kennan was the author of the letter. The Marshall Plan should have been called the Council on Foreign Relations Plan. The so-called Marshall Plan and the ensuing North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) defined the role of the United States in world politics for the rest of the century.
In 1950 another PSYOP resulted in NSC-68, a key cold war document. The NSC (National Security Council) didn’t write it — the Department of State Policy Planning Staff did. The cast of characters included CFR members George Kennan, Paul Nitze, and Dean Achenson. NSC-68 was given to Truman on April 7, 1950. NSC-68 was a practical extension of the Truman doctrine. It had the US assume the role of world policeman and use 20 per cent of its gross national product ($50 billion in 1953) for arms. NSC-68 provided the justification — the WORLD WIDE COMMUNIST THREAT!
NSC-68 realized a major Council on Foreign Relations aim — building the largest military establishment in Peace Time History. Within a year of drafting NSC-68, the security-related budget leaped to $22 billion, armed forces manpower was up to a million — CFR medicine, munition, food, and media businesses were humming again. The following year the NSC-68 budget rose to $44 billion. In fiscal 1953 it jumped to $50 billion. Today (1997) we are still running $300 billion dollar defense budgets despite Russia giving up because it went bankrupt.
America would never turn back from the road of huge military spending. Spending that included the purchase of radioactive fallout on American citizens in the 50’s, and buying thermonuclear waste from the Russians as we approach the year 2000. Spending resulting in a national debt of $5.5 Trillion Dollars that continues to grow, and interest payments of over $270 billion a year. Is the Council on Foreign Relations trying to make the United States economically vulnerable to influence from outside sources? Isn’t that treason?
THE INQUIRY, the PSB/OCB/Special group, the War and Peace Studies, the “X” Affair, and NSC-68 have had tremendous historical impact. Yet these events and the role played by the Council on Foreign Relations in sponsoring and carrying out the events are missing from our History books. You represent the people. Can you explain to me why the Council on Foreign Relations role in History has been left out of the History books? Why don’t we learn about them in High School History courses? Why don’t History majors in college learn about the Council on Foreign Relations?
Why, because the Council on Foreign Relations members control both Government agency, and “private-industry” news sources. Round Table Group members in different nations control the news sources in their respected countries. The Council on Foreign Relations propaganda machine manipulates American Citizens to accept the particular climate of opinion the Round Table Groups are seeking to achieve in the world. Council on Foreign Relations members working in an ad hoc committee called the “Special Group” and through a vast intragovernmental undercover infrastructure called the “Secret Team” formulate this opinion in the United States.

William Base’s take on the New World Order:
If one group is effectively in control of national governments and multinational corporations; promotes world government through control of media, foundation grants, and education; and controls and guides the issues of the day; then they control most options available. The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and the financial powers behind it, have done all these things, and promote the “New World Order”, as they have for over seventy years. The CFR is the promotional arm of the ruling Elite in the United States of America. Most influential politicians, academics and media personalities are members, and it uses its influence to infiltrate the New World Order into American life. Its’ “experts” write scholarly pieces to be used in decision making, the academics expound on the wisdom of a united world, and the media members disseminate the message.
Felix Frankfurter, Justice of the Supreme Court (1939-1962), said:
“The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes.”
In a letter to an associate dated November 21, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt wrote,
“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.”
February 23, 1954, Senator William Jenner warned in a speech:
“Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system, another body representing another form of government, a bureaucratic elite which believes our Constitution is outmoded.”
Since 1934 almost every United States Secretary of State has been a CFR member; and ALL Secretaries of War or Defense, from Henry L. Stimson through Richard Cheney. The CIA has been under CFR control almost continuously since its creation, starting with Allen Dulles, founding member of the CFR and brother of Secretary of State under President Eisenhower, John Foster Dulles. Allen Dulles had been at the Paris Peace Conference, joined the CFR in 1926, and later became its president. “The most powerful cliques in these elitist groups have one objective in common: they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and national independence of the United States.” What must be remembered is that this is not some lunatic- fringe group…these are members of one of the most powerful private organizations in the world: the people who determine and control American economic, social, political, and military policy. Members’ influence and control extends to “leaders in academia, public service, business, and the media,” according to the CFR 1993 “Annual Report.”
James Warburg, son of CFR founder Paul Warburg, and a member of FDR’s “brain trust,” testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on February 17, 1950,
“We shall have world government whether or not you like it – by conquest or consent.”
