Hillary Clinton Brags about Getting Her Marching Orders from the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)

In-depth Report:

For those who may be unaware, the Council on Foreign Relations is essentially a sister organization to the Royal Institute of International Affairs, one of the primary Anglo-American policy developers, and functions as one of the most effective direct control mechanisms in the world in regards to government-based decisions and governmental policy. It is from the RIIA and the CFR, as well as the other relevant sister organizations set up in nations all across the world, that the direction in which the world will go is decided and implemented through a number of other front organizations, conferences, publications, foundations, and NGOs.

Politicians – Senators, Congressmen, Presidents, Prime Ministers, Parliamentarians – all attend their relevant organization’s functions, participate in “discussions” and hold memberships in their CFR-related clubs for the purposes of receiving their “marching orders” from their bosses. As one might suspect, this is no different for Hillary Clinton.

While a list of members and participants of the CFR would be far too exhaustive a list to reproduce during the course of this study, it is nevertheless important to point out that not only is Dick Cheney a member of the organization, he was actually a director for a period of time.[1]

In fact, David Rockefeller was Chairman of the CFR until Peter G. Peterson, banker, hedge fund hyena, and Rothschild associate, took over the position.[2] [3] Robert Rubin later took the post but David Rockefeller has remained an honorary chairman ever since.[4]

While Clinton herself is not an official member of the CFR, her affiliations with the organization are abundantly clear as she herself admits. On July 15, 2009, Clinton spoke to the Washington DC satellite facility of the CFR where she stated,

I am delighted to be here in these new headquarters. I have been often to, I guess, the mother ship in New York City, but it’s good to have an outpost of the Council right here down the street from the State Department.

We get a lot of advice from the Council, so this will mean I won’t have as far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future.[5]

(Clinton’s speech.)[6]

Clinton’s speech then went on to address the “global agenda,” “global consensus,” and “global architecture” of the coming years.

Despite her own lack of official membership with the CFR, an invited address to the organization often functions as a means of acceptance into the group. In other words, it should be understood as a de facto membership.

Nevertheless, both Clinton’s husband and daughter are indeed official members of the CFR.[7]

When Hillary was appointed as Secretary of State, her own first appointment to the agency was George Mitchell, not only a member of the CFR but also a former director.[8] Mitchell owed the jumpstart of his political career to Jimmy Carter, another member of the CFR.[9]

Clinton’s ties to the Council on Foreign Relations are solid and her foreign policy as well as her domestic policies should serve as ample evidence that the agenda of the CFR and the agenda of Hillary Clinton are one in the same.
