In my last article in this series I asked if the Council on Foreign Relations really “owned” the mainstream media in this country. Given that the media so often parrots the CFR line on one world government I thought it was a fair question.
I got a response this morning from one of my faithful readers, who is also a good friend, and he posited the possibility that it is really the Federal Reserve that “owns” the mainstream media. Now I have no use for the Federal Reserve, which is really privately owned and not “federal” at all except in name. And that’s only to fool the public. When he ran for president Ron Paul, one of the few honest people in Washington, tried to get the Federal Reserve audited. Naturally, they could never permit a real audit to take place, anymore than they could afford to let Ron Paul be president. Ron was on target about the Federal Reserve.
However, my friend’s comment got me to looking–and what I found made me posit the question–does it really make any difference whether the Fed or the CFR controls the mainstream media?
The current Chairman of the Federal Reserve is Jerome Powell. Mr. Powell is a member of the CFR. The current Vice Chairman of the Fed is Richard W. Clarida. Mr. Clarida is a member of the CFR. The most recent chairman, Janet Yellen, is a member of the CFR. And she was also when she was Vice Chairman.
Alan Greenspan, a recent chairman was also a CFR member, as were Paul Volker, and a couple earlier chairmen, Thomas B. McCabe and William McC Martin Jr. All these sterling individuals were chairmen of the Federal Reserve Board and all were Council on Foreign Relations members.
And then there were the vice chairmen of the Federal Reserve Board. Names I came across for this position were Stanley Fischer, Donald L. Kohn, Roger W. Ferguson Jr. and Alice M. Rivlin. All these vice chairmen (vice chairpersons) were also members of the Council on Foreign Relations, which is, as I have previously stated, the premier one world government organization in this country, though they might have to share that “laudable” title with the Trilateral Commission and/or the Bilderberg group.
All of the above named outfits have as the main part of their agenda, the merging of the United States into a socialist one world government, probably governed by the United Nations. Next month is the anniversary of the founding of the United Nations, what some informed folks have called “the house that (Alger) Hiss built.
If you care to check out those names I listed above, the CFR/Federal Reserve folks you can find this info on https://www.federalreserve.gov
Don’t just take my word for it. Check it out yourselves. The question might be asked “so who really does own the news media?” I begin to wonder, with all the cross-organizational memberships between the CFR and the Federal Reserve Board, if it really makes any difference. They will both take us to the same blighted end in the long run.
