At the founding meeting of the CFR were the following Masons: 33rd degree Grand Lodge Mason "Colonel" House: 33rd degree Scottish Rite Mason Christian Herter; Grand Orient Masons Paul Warburg and Jacob Schiff, both American bankers; Scottish Rite Mason Averell Harriman, who in 1972 negotiated America's shameful withdrawal from Vietnam; and 33rd degree Scottish Rite Mason Bernard Baruch, a Jewish banker and investor in silver. Other founding members with no record of being Masons were Walter Lippmann, the Dulles brothers (John and Allen), the bankers J.P. Morgan and John D. Rockefeller. Rockefeller's two sons are today members of Lucis (Lucifer) Trust, which funds the Anglophile New Age Movement. 57 The CFR immediately set out to replace pro-American politicians with Anglophile politicians. From the 1920s through World War II, pro-America Masons dominated key positions in our government. For example in 1923,69 percent of congressman and 63 percent of senators were

By 1984 the percentages had fallen to twelve and fourteen percent respectively. 58 What is not normally realized is the fact that these positions, once staffed by pro-America Masons, are now filled by persons who are members of the pro-British Masonic front, the Council on Foreign Relations. For example, in the 1920s and 1930s, many young and aspiring politicians were "appointed" to the CFR where they were educated on the merits of Anglophile internationalism. Likewise, young American intellectuals selected for the Rhodes Scholarship and educated at Oxford, were sent back to the United States to careers in politics. These students of the CFR came of age in 1939 when they began filling posts in our federal government. By 1945 the State Department had been completely taken over by the Council on Foreign Relations. 59 Since its 1921 founding and continuing through the Nixon administration in the 1970s, twelve of eighteen Secretaries of the Treasury have been members of the CFR. Another twelve of sixteen Secretaries of State have been members. Since 1944, all Presidential candidates, both Republican and Democrat, have either been members of the CFR or its 1973 offshoot, the Trilateral Commission. The only exception was Harry Truman, who though a 33rd degree Mason was not voted into office. Six of the seven Superintendents of West Point, every Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, and every U.S. Ambassador to N.A.T.O. has been a member of the CFR. 60 British World Governance and the United Nations After World War I, French Grand Orient Freemasonry considered itself mistress of the future. Grand Orient Masons were in charge of the new European politics from 1918 to 1930.61 They promised the world an era of peace, happiness and prosperity through Grand Orient-created socialism and communism. Instead Europe was plunged into revolution followed by counterrevolution, fought between proponents of English and French Freemasonry. Traditional monarchies, under the aegis of English Freemasonry, were destroyed in favor of French Freemasonry's socialist and communist republics. Left-wing dictators - more despotic than
