Hillary Clinton spills the beans at the inauguration of the new office for Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in Washington, D.C. Some have said it was simply a slip of the tongue but whatever the perception is Clinton frankly revealed who’s running the show in these United States.
The CFR is thought to be the most influential foreign policy Think Tank. Since its 1921 origination it has served as an intermediary between, big oil, corporate, high finance, corporate elitists and the United States Government.
Members of the CFR hold key positions within the government, financial institutions, military, intelligence communities, mass media and multinational corporations. The CFR has a non-attribution law which allows member to speak freely. Hence, Clinton was among peers and could speak candidly without being subjected to media attribution; as a result many don’t see this as an accident.
Participants of CFR meetings are not allowed to publish a speaker’s statement in accredited form outside of a memo of limited circulation; including newspaper, television, classroom setting, radio or any other platform.
With this in mind the only way the public gets access to CFR information is when they release it to the public. This should concern anyone who has an idea of the deep effect that CFR has on America’s foreign policy.
On the CFR website it brags that its magazine, “Foreign Affairs” is highly regarded for its analysis of recent international developments as well as forecasts of rising trends. That’s not hard to believe when the CFR is responsible for those trends.
Clinton addresses the members of CFR in the following manner:
She opens by thanking Richard and expressing her delight to be there at the new headquarters of, “ I guess ‘The Mothership’ in New York City.” She went on to say that they get a lot of advice from the CFR and so now it’s good to know she won’t have to travel as far to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future.
Within every United States Presidential Administration over the last 70 years, just about every cabinet position has been held by a CFR member. During almost the entire existence of the CIA it’s been headed by a CFR member. With one exception, every US Secretary of State since 1940 has been a member of the CFR and practically every US national security and foreign policy adviser was a CFR member.
Whether stated by accident or with purposeful intention, Secretary of State and CFR member, Hillary Clinton made it quite clear that the Council on Foreign Relations is running these United States of America.
