excerpts from the book
The Rockefeller File
by Gary Allen
'76 Press, 1976
John D. Rockefeller was a Machiavellian who boasted that he hated
competition. Whenever he could, Rockefeller used the government
to promote his own interests and to hinder his competitors. Monopoly
capitalism is impossible unless you have a government with the
power to strangle would-be competitors.
The easiest way to control or eliminate
competitors is not to best them in the marketplace, but to use
the power of government to exclude them from the marketplace.
If you wish to control commerce, banking, transportation, and
natural resources on a national level, you must control the federal
government. If you and your clique wish to establish worldwide
monopolies, you must control World Government..
At the center of Insider power, influence, and planning in the
United States is the pervasive Council on Foreign Relations ...
The CFR was created by the Rockefellers and their allies to be
the focus of their drive for a "New World Order".
[The] group of individuals and organizations ... known as the
Eastern Liberal Establishment... The keystone of the entire Establishment
arch is the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The leadership
of the CFR is the equivalent to the brain of the octopus. David
Rockefeller is chairman of the board of the CFR. It is impossible
to comprehend fully the interlock of Rockefeller power without
being aware of the all-pervasive influence of the Council...
The Council on Foreign Relations, headquartered
in New York City, is composed of an elite of approximately 1600
of the nation's Establishment Insiders in the fields of high finance,
academics, politics, commerce, the foundations, and the mass media...
Although the membership of the CFR is
a veritable "Who's Who" in big business and the media,
probably only one person in a thousand is familiar with the organization
itself and even fewer are aware of its real purposes.
During its first fifty years of existence,
the CFR was almost never mentioned by any of the moguls of the
mass media. And when you realize that the membership of the CFR
includes top executives from the New York Times, the Washington
Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Knight newspaper chain, NBC,
CBS, Time, Life, Fortune, Business Week, U.S. News & Wand
Report, and many others, you can be sure that such anonymity is
not accidental; it is deliberate.
The CFR has served as a virtual employment agency for the federal
government, under both Democrat and Republican administrations.
In his New York Times magazine article, Anthony Lukas observed:
"... everyone knows how fraternity brothers can help other
brothers climb the ladder of life. If you want to make foreign
policy, there's no better fraternity to belong to than the Council..."
This "fraternity" of Insiders has been so successful
that its members have virtually dominated every administration
in Washington since the days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. CFR
members occupied the major policy-making positions, especially
in the field of foreign relations, under Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower,
Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon; and they are just as powerful today,
under the Administration of Gerald Ford.
As Joseph Kraft phrased it "the Council
plays a special part in helping to bridge the gap between the
two parties, affording unofficially a measure of continuity when
the guard changes in Washington."
Perhaps the most important and certainly the most prominent of
all these [CFR Establishment] Insiders is Henry Kissinger. No
man alive could more effectively represent the Council on Foreign
Relations than Herr Kissinger, who for all practical purposes
has emerged as the Assistant President of the United States. Kissinger
was a Rockefeller man, serving on the staff of the CFR, when he
received his appointment to the Nixon Administration.
... In 1956, Kissinger was an obscure
German immigrant who was a mere professor at Harvard University.
In less than twenty years, he has become so powerful that he survives
the dismissal of his ostensible boss, and apparently tells presidents,
prime ministers, and other potentates what to say and do. What
is the source of his remarkable authority?
Professor Kissinger's public commitments
were in nearly every case the opposite of those expressed by Richard
Nixon in his successful bid for the Presidency. But, after the
rah-rah of the campaign was over, the CFR boys were brought in
to run the show - and Henry Kissinger was Numero Uno.
Admiral Chester Ward, U.S. Nay (Ret.)
The objective of the influential majority
of members of CFR has not changed since its founding in 1922,...
In the 50th anniversary issue of Foreign Affairs the official
quarterly publication of the CFR], the first and leading article
was written by CFR member Kingman Brewster, Jr., entitled "Reflections
on Our National Purpose." He did not back away from defining
it: our national purpose should be to abolish our nationality.
Indeed, he pulled out all the emotional stops in a hard-shell
for global government. He described our' Vietnam-seared generation"
as being "far from America Firsters:' - an expression meant
as a patronizing sop to our young people. In the entire CFR lexicon,
there is no term of revulsion carrying a meaning so deep as "America
The "New World Order" the Rockefellers are planning
will be a world dictatorship. Conservatives will call it Socialism
or Communism, Liberals will call it Fascism. The label makes little
difference; it will be the Gulag Archipelago on a worldwide basis.
Of course, proponents of such a World
Government disguise their intentions behind all kinds of double
talk. For example, Senator Alan Cranston of California (for many
years the president of the Rockefeller-interlocked United World
Federalists), defended his proposal for a world super-state with
(World Government) Proposition 64 does
not propose that we give up a shred of sovereignty. Plainly it
proposes a means by which we can gain the ability to exercise
our presently impotent sovereignty hi the vital area of war prevention.
It proposes that we create a limited world government and deposit
our sovereignty there ....
Let us repeat that. Senator Cranston says
we won't "give up a shred of sovereignty" if we "create
a limited world government and deposit our sovereignty there."
Lewis Carroll couldn't have said it better.
George Orwell didn't even try; he called it "newspeak."
But while Senator Cranston and many of
his colleagues play the string section in the orchestration for
World Government, other CFR members trumpet other parts in this
carefully rehearsed symphony. Nelson Rockefeller, for example,
as an "altruistic millionaire," sounds the melody line
for international taxation. In his book The Future of Federalism,
first published in 1962 and then reprinted when he was nominated
for the Vice Presidency, Nelson stated: ". . . I think the
answer is some free-world super-national political being with
the power to tax ....
Alice Widener, columnist for Barron's
It is a fact that most editors and newsmen
on the staffs of Life, Look, Time, Newsweek, etc., and most editors,
reporters, and commentators at NBC, CBS, and ABC take their news
and editorial cues from the New York Times. Technically, it is
a great newspaper; but it reports much of the news in conformity
with its editorial policies.
Frederick C. Howe in his book Confessions of a Monopolist
These are the rules of big business. They
have superseded the teachings of our parents and are reducible
to a simple maxim: Get a monopoly; let Society work for you; and
remember that the best of all business is politics, for a legislative
grant, franchise, subsidy or tax exemption is worth more than
a Kimberly or Comstock lode, since it does not require any labor,
either mental or physical, for its exploitation.
Anthony Sutton, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution for
War and Peace at Stanford University ,in his book Wall Street
And The Bolshevik Revolution
... one barrier to mature understanding
of recent history is the notion that all capitalists are the bitter
and unswerving enemies of all Marxists and Socialists. This erroneous
idea originated with Karl Marx and was undoubtedly useful to his
purposes. In fact, the idea is nonsense. There has been a continuing,
albeit concealed, alliance between international political capitalists
and international revolutionary socialists-to their mutual benefit.
For fifty years the Federal Reserve-CFR-Rockefeller-Insider crowd
has advocated and carried out policies aimed at increasing the
power of their satellite, the Soviet Union...
What has been true in the past is even
more valid today, Heading the parade to transfer technology and
increase aid and trade with the Communists are the Rockefellers
and the Council on Foreign Relations.
The bandmaster for the entire enterprise
is David Rockefeller.
The Viet Cong and North Vietnamese received 85 percent of their
war materials from Russia and the Soviet bloc nations. Since their
economies are incapable of supporting a war, the Communist arm
of the conspiracy needed help from the Finance Capitalist arm.
The United States financed and equipped both sides of the terrible
Vietnamese war, killing nearly 55,000 of our own soldiers by proxy.
Again, the mass media kept the American public from learning this
Not surprisingly, the Rockefellers have
been leaders in championing this bloody trade. On January 16,
1967, one of the most incredible articles ever to appear in a
newspaper graced the front page of the Establishment's daily,
the New York Times. Under the headline, ''Eaton Joins Rockefellers
To Spur Trade With Reds," the article stated:
An alliance of family fortunes linking
Wall Street and the Midwest is going to try to build economic
bridges between the free world and Communist Europe.
The International Basic- Economy Corporation,
controlled by the Rockefeller brothers, and Tower International,
Inc., headed by Cyrus S. Eaton, Jr., Cleveland financier, plan
to cooperate in promoting trade between the Iron Curtain countries,
including the Soviet Union...
Professor Anthony Sutton ... has shown that Communism is a stagnant
system incapable of innovation or high productivity. Its survival,,
even at a subsistence level for its captives, has required regular
transfusions of capital and technology. Without aid from the West,
the Soviet Union would have long since collapsed. But without
the Soviet Union, the Rockefellers and other super-rich would
not have had an "enemy" to justify their schemes for
monopoly World Government.
The Soviet Union was first saved by Herbert
Hoover with food. Next, came Lenin's New Economic Plan which let
the super-capitalists back into Russia. This was followed by FDR's
diplomatic recognition of Russia (long advocated by the Rockefellers),
which allowed the Soviets to obtain desperately needed credits.
World War II turned on the $11 billion Lend-Lease spigot. Following
the war, Russia was allowed to denude much of Germany of factories
and scientists. During the Kennedy Administration we started providing
wheat for hungry Soviet factory workers. During the Vietnam War,
America shipped vital supplies to the East European bloc, which
was providing North Vietnam with the war equipment to kill our
own soldiers. Now we are supplying the world's largest truck factory,
extremely sophisticated computers and a cornucopia of other manufacturing
technology. To cap the climax, the Wall Street Journal of April
25, 1975, headlines "U.S. Quietly Allows Uranium Shipments
to Soviet on For Processing Into Fuel." Is that unbelievable?
Where was the public outrage that the mediacracy is capable of
former Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal
"Consistency never has been a mark
of stupidity. If the diplomats who have mishandled our relations
with Russia were merely stupid, they would occasionally make a
mistake in our favor." In short, what is happening is not
just the looting of our economy, but treason."
The Rockefellers learned nearly a century ago that there are two
standard ways for one of their companies to absorb another corporation.
If the firm to be acquired is much smaller, a "takeover"
is the simplest procedure: buy 'em out. But if the competitor
is more your equal, a "merger" must be arranged.
The same principles hold true among nations.
No matter how much this country sends abroad as foreign aid, technical
assistance, loans that are never repaid, or other largesse, there
is simply no way another country-or even a bloc of countries-can
be made powerful enough to take us over.
Recognizing this political fact of life
the master planners devised the strategy of a merger - a Great
But before such a merger can be consummated,
and the United States becomes just another province in a New World
Order, there must at least be the semblance of parity among the
senior partners in the deal. How does one make the nations of
the world more nearly equal? The Insiders determined that a two-prong
approach was needed; use American money and know-how to build
up your competitors, while at the same time use every devious
strategy you can devise to weaken and impoverish this country.
The goal is not to bankrupt the United States, we must emphasize.
Rather, it is to reduce our productive might, and therefore our
standard of living, to the meager subsistence level of the socialized
nations of the world.
Only a fascist-socialist dictatorship
would have the power to accomplish such a "redistribution."
Notice that the plan is not to bring the standard of living in
less developed countries up to our level, but to bring ours down
to meet theirs coming up.
You may be assured, however, that the
Rockefellers and their allies are not talking about reducing their
own quality of life. It is your standard of living which must
be sacrificed on the altar of the New World Order.
The Rockefeller game plan is to use population,
energy, food, and financial controls as a method of people control
which will lead, steadily and deliberately, into the Great Merger.
Much of the spade work for setting up this ploy is being done
by Henry Kissinger, who wag a personal employee of Nelson Rockefeller
for a decade before Rocky placed him in the Nixon Administration.
On numerous occasions Herr Kissinger has declared that his goal
is to create a "New World Order." Syndicated Washington
columnist Paul Scott reveals:
It is Kissinger's belief, according to
his aides, that by controlling food, one can control people, and
by controlling energy, especially oil, one can control nations
and their financial systems. By placing food and oil under international
control along with the worlds monetary system, Kissinger is convinced
a loosely knit world government operating under the frame-work
of the United Nations can become a reality before 1980.
Common sense tells us that a Rockefeller
hireling such as Kissinger would not be setting up an "international
control" system which takes assets from the Rockefellers
and gives them to someone else. Obviously, the game plan is to
take other people's assets and put them under the umbrella of
a Rockefeller-controlled World Government.
This new strategy may be termed the crisis
route to World Order. It runs parallel to and eventually will
converge with the Atlantic Union treaty and regional government
approach to the Universal State. Washington columnist Paul Scott
calls this "the new strategy change from the direct to the
indirect approach to bring about world government." The plan,
as publicly stated by the CFR's Richard Gardner, part-time State
Department functionary and Columbia University Professor of Law
and International Organization, amounts to this: Instead of trying
to make the UN a complete world dictatorship immediately, the
Establishment will identify different problems in different countries.
Then they will propose a "solution," which can only
be achieved by some kind of international agency, so that each
country concerned will be forced to surrender another segment
of its national independence. Gardner considers this piecemeal
approach the practical road to the end of nationhood:
We are likely to do better by building
our "house of world order" from the bottom up rather
than from the top down. It will look like a great "booming,
buzzing confusion," to use William James' facetious description
of reality; but, end run around national sovereignty, eroding
it piece by piece, is likely to get us to world order faster than
the old-fashioned frontal assault.
So this is what the Rockefeller gang,
working through agents like Kissinger and Gardner, have in mind-an
"end run around national sovereignty." Gardner continues,
with obvious glee:
The hopeful aspect of the present situation
is that even as nations resist appeals for "world government"
and "the surrender of sovereignty," technological, economic
and political interests are forcing them to establish more and
more far-ranging institutions to manage their mutual interdependence.
To the Rockefellers, socialism is not a system for redistributing
wealth - especially not for redistributing their wealth - but
a system to control people and competitors. Socialism puts power
in the hands of the government. And since the Rockefellers control
the governments, government control means Rockefeller control.
It makes no difference which party is in power; whether a Democrat
or Republican Administration,
the Rockefeller people hold the key positions, especially in the
fields of foreign policy and finance. The House of Rockefeller
is the eternal power.
The Federal Reserve controls our money supply and interest rates,
and thereby manipulates the entire economy - creating inflation
or deflation, recession or boom, and sending the stock market
up or down at will. The Federal Reserve is so powerful that Congressman
Wright Patman, Chairman of the House Banking Committee, maintains:
In the United States today we have in
effect two governments ... We have the duly constituted Government
... Then we have an independent, uncontrolled and uncoordinated
government in the Federal Reserve System, operating the money
powers which are reserved to Congress by the Constitution.
America is being set up today for another 1929 style debacle.
To think that the Crash of 1929 was an accident or the result
of stupidity defies all logic. The international bankers who promoted
the inflationary policies and pushed the propaganda which pumped
up the stock market represented too many generations of accumulated
expertise to have blundered into the Great Depression. As Congressman
Louis McFadden, Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee
It [the Depression] was not accidental.
It was a carefully contrived occurrence ... The international
bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so that
they might emerge as rulers of us all.
It was the game of boom and bust, using
economic crisis to consolidate political power at the top where
it can be most easily controlled.
The major cause of the economic collapse
was the deliberately created credit inflation by the Federal Reserve.
In six years it had inflated the money supply by sixty-two percent,
inducing market speculations and unwise investments by middle
Americans who were being set up for a shearing. When the shearing
came, the sheep took a realistic look at their economy and panicked.
Optimism was replaced by economic despair; despair produced a
willingness to accept a major expansion of government controls
over the economy.
[Henry] Kissinger's loyalty was not with his President [Richard
Nixon], it was with the Rockefellers! Kissinger had been through
three losing campaigns with Nelson Rockefeller and openly spoke
of despising Nixon. Biographer David Hanna quotes Kissinger as
stating, after Nixon's nomination in 1968: "That man is unfit
to be President. I would never work for that man. He is a disaster."
Yet Kissinger was the first appointment made by Nixon.
Nixon did not know Kissinger well; in
fact, he had only met the man once before in his life-at a cocktail
party. And Kissinger was on record as standing 180 degrees to
the left of Nixon's campaign utterances. Clearly, Kissinger was
put in the Nixon Administration by Rockefeller (who sent his protégé
off to Washington with a tidy little gift of $50,000). In his
Vice Presidential hearings, Nelson Rockefeller even acknowledged
that Kissinger took the job because Rocky asked him to do so.
