[Note: Gerald Celente of Trends Research Institute has been heralded by THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, CNBC, CBS, etc. and he has recently said by 2012 the U.S. will become “an undeveloped nation” with tax revolts and a lot of homeless people and crime. Also recently, accidental fires created a state of emergency in California, which is just a reminder of the havoc that could be created by a few Iranian agents here if war should break out between the U.S. and Iran.
Regarding the terrorist attack in India last week, it was by a Pakistani group with links to Pakistan’s ISI intelligence service about whom I’ve written. The group is called Lashkar-e-Taiba which opposes India’s involvement in Kashmir, about which I wrote in my July 23, 2007 NewsWithViews.com column “Javier Solana and the Larger Plan.” Also, remember that in my Sept. 22, 2008 NEWSWITHVIEWS column, “Threats Used for Coercive Compliance,” I wrote (over two months before last week’s attack) that “globally, threats can be non-Communist as well, as India feels threatened by Pakistan and vice versa (watch Kashmir in the future).”
And concerning the Obama administration’s continuing the Power Elite’s planned alternation of power by including many Clintonistas, two examples are Rhodes scholars Dennis Blair (named director of National Intelligence) and Susan Rice (named U.S. ambassador to the U.N.).]
In a previous NewsWithViews column, I mentioned that globalization has returned us to the late 1800s where workers underbid each other for jobs whose conditions weren’t safeguarded by health regulations. “Robber barrons” ruled, and these were people like John D. Rockefeller (his nephew Percy became a member of Skull & Bones in 1900).
With the beginning of the 20th century, Theodore Roosevelt was president and came to be known as a “trust buster” against Rockefeller’s Standard Oil and others, but major corporations that were split up still had interlocking directorates. Thus, Rockefeller’s power was maintained, and he is portrayed in Robert Minor’s 1911 cartoon in THE ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH as welcoming Karl Marx to Wall Street, with Marx carrying a book titled SOCIALISM. Rockefeller was able to use his great wealth to “buy” politicians who would see to it that through laws, rules and regulations, their “owners” were not adversely affected—a type of corporate Socialism.
In August of the same year (1911), McCLURE’S magazine published an article titled “Masters of America: The Seven Men,” which warned that “all fundamental resources, all industries capable of forming a unit, are being drawn together toward monopoly control…. And if corporate centralization of power continues unchecked, what is the next great popular agitation to be in this country? For state socialism?”
Education was an important component of the Rockefeller plan, and he hired a reassuring Baptist minister, Frederick Gates, to set up his General Education Board in 1902 to oversee this effort. From this position, Gates wrote Occasional Letter No. 1 (published 1912), stating that “in our dream, we have limitless resources, and the people (rural folk) yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hand… unhampered by tradition.” Rockefeller education initiatives applied to city schools, too, as Mayor John Hylan of New York City said in THE NEW YORK TIMES (March 27, 1922): “One of my first acts as mayor was to pitch out… from the educational system of our city the Rockefeller agents” and others who planned “to fit the children for the mill and factory.”
The Rockefeller Foundation throughout the 20th century would try to influence many aspects of American education, for example supporting the School-Health Coordinating Service begun in 1939. But the Rockefeller plan’s educational component ultimately has been to facilitate globalism. In Edith Roosevelt’s 1962 article “The Universal Theocratic State,” she revealed: “Curriculum are being drafted to indoctrinate our children in what John D. Rockefeller, Jr. called ‘the church of all people.’… plans are being made to set up regional world Universities whose objectives would include… ‘to build a world outlook’….” At the end of the next decade, the Rockefeller Foundation supported a 3-volume set, including James Becker’s SCHOOLING FOR A GLOBAL AGE, attempting to convince parents and the general public of the necessity of a global perspective, “otherwise children and youth enrolled in globally oriented programs may find themselves in conflict with values assumed in the home.”
In the mid-1980s, Seattle schools “Rockefeller Project” promoted “global education,” and in 1987 the Rockefeller Foundation helped finance Global Perspectives in Education’s “The United States Prepares for its Future: Global Perspectives in Education, Report of the Study Commission on Global Education.”
In November 1992, when Bill Clinton was elected president, David Rockefeller, Jr., who was on the board of the National Center on Education and the Economy, “celebrated” Clinton’s victory which would give NCEE the chance to implement a “cradle-to-grave” plan “to integrate education and human resource development” that could require radical changes in attitudes, values and beliefs.
Changing attitudes, values and beliefs were also aspects of “social control” which, like education, was an important component of the Rockefeller plan. In order to control people, the Rockefellers knew they had to have the ability to monitor what people do. In that regard, investigative reporter Thomas Lawson in EVERYBODY’S magazine (August 1904) learned “about the greatest information bureau in the world. A ‘Standard Oil’ agent is in every hamlet of the country.” Of course, it was also an important aspect of control to be able to manage what information the American people received. In that regard, in 1905 U.S. Rep. Joseph Sibley (Rockefeller Standard Oil payoff man in Washington) wrote a letter to John D. Archbold (Standard Oil’s money provider) saying, “An efficient literary bureau is needed, not for a day or a crisis but a permanent healthy control of the Associated Press and kindred avenues. It will cost money but it will be the cheapest in the end.”
John D. Rockefeller, his son and grandson were all interested in eugenics, with Rockefeller Foundation money supporting the Eugenics Record Office and in 1926 the founding of the American Eugenics Society. And a few years later, on April 11, 1933, Rockefeller Foundation president Max Mason assured its trustees that “the rationalization of social control” would be the concern of their Social Sciences program. Then in the next decade, Rockefeller Foundation medical director Alan Gregg in 1945 sought to fund research into whether wartime psychology could be relevant for the civilian society.
At the beginning of the next decade, John D. Rockefeller III founded the Population Council in 1952 to develop population control measures worldwide. These efforts were vigorously promoted through the 1960s, and in 1973 the same John D. Rockefeller III authored THE SECOND AMERICAN REVOLUTION applauding sexual liberation and the “humanist revolution” while disparaging “old-fashioned nationalism” (remember my earlier remark about the Rockefeller plan changing attitudes, values and beliefs).
The progression of this plan continued into the 1980s with Arthur S. Miller’s THE SECRET CONSTITUTION AND THE NEED FOR CONSTITUTIONAL CHANGE (1987) sponsored in part by the Rockefeller Foundation. In his book, Miller asserted that “ours is the age of the planned society…. No other way is possible.”
Four years later, the National Commission on Children, with John D. Rockefeller IV (U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller) as Chairman, issued its 1991 report, “Beyond Rhetoric: A New American Agenda for Children and Families,” stating that many others (e.g., health professionals, the media, etc.) besides parents “must help children form attitudes.” It also proposed values education programs built on “common values” which, of course, eliminates exclusively Biblical values.
