The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) End Run Around the Logan Act

The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 30 January 1799, currently codified at 18 U.S.C. § 953) is a United States federal law that forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments. It was passed in 1799 and last amended in 1994. Violation of the Logan Act is a felony, punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years.

The Act was intended to prohibit United States citizens without authority from interfering in relations between the United States and foreign governments.

The Council on Foreign Relations has only 5000 members yet they control over three-quarters of the nation’s wealth. The CFR runs the State Department, the CIA and the NSA. The CFR has placed CFR members in every Presidential Administration since Woodrow Wilson. Today over 500 CFR members work in President Obama’s Administration. They work together to misinform and disinform the President to act in the best interest of the CFR not the best interest of the American People. The best interests of the CFR are endless wars from which the CFR generates billions in profit. The profit comes from the destruction of lives and property of millions of people all over the globe.

CFR members created and run the Carlyle Group. Carlyle manages more than $75 billion in assets and has bought and sold a long string of military contractors since the early 1990s. The Carlyle Group is one of the world’s largest private equity funds and acquired the government contracting consulting giant Booz Allen Hamilton. Booz-Allen-Hamilton is one of the biggest suppliers of technology and personnel to the U.S. government’s spy agencies. Edward Snowden was a Booz Allen Hamilton Employee. In his open letter to Brazil Snowden tells us about the NSA terrorism spying programs. Snowden writes, These programs were never about terrorism: they’re about economic spying, social control, and diplomatic manipulation. They’re about power.”

Is the reason the CFR has people in government positions an end run around the Logan act that allows the CFR to interfere in the relations between the United States and Foreign Governments, keep the United States in a state of endless war, generate endless war profits, control the US citizenry and avoid imprisonment?

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, and 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.17

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 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 has never turned 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 approached the year 2000. Spending resulting in a national debt of $18 Trillion Dollars that continues to grow. Over the last decade  and interest payments have grown from of $270 billion a year to $880 billion a year. Has the CFR turned the United States Government into a CFR run National Security State? Is the Council on Foreign Relations trying to make the United States economically vulnerable to influence from outside sources, give up its sovereignty and become part of a one world government controlled by them and their cohorts from foreign countries? Cohorts who are members of UK’s Chatham House, the Bilderberg Group, and the US based Trilateral Commission. Isn’t that treason?
