The following is a list of corporate members of the Council On Foreign Relations: America's Ruling Party.

The Council has, since its inception, promoted world government at the expense of national sovereignty. With funding coming from big foundations, wealthy individuals, and these corporate members, it's easy to understand why. Those who dominate the economy have always sought to pull government to that level on which they are operating where it can best protect and promote their interests.

When these United States were founded, the Articles of Confederation best served the interests of the farmers, plantation owners, craftsmen, and small tradesmen, in other words, probably the majority of the people in most of the new States. But the banking and interstate commerce interest of a few of the northern States were not happy with that. They didn't want to have to deal with 13 separate governments. They wanted one, so, led by economic royalists like Hamilton they set out to create a strong national government under their control. This was the intent of the Constitution. Fortunately, their were enough men who understood what these people were trying to do and delayed the power grab for awhile with the First Ten Amendments.

Unfortunately, the delay was only temporary and the power was eventually seized by the agents of wealth in Washington. You can see the program for the destruction of our State and local governments in the “Regionalism-Death of the American System post in my lostliberty blog.

Sadly, the power shift hasn't ended with the great usurpation by Washington on behalf of the interstate commerce interests. The largest of those entities are now international, and they have been working toward the destruction of national sovereignty throughout the world. This bodes ill, not only for the American people, but for all of the peoples of the world who will be uniformly reduced to serfdom.

It's entirely possible that the regionalism being promoted here has nothing to do with interstate commerce. It may have been a globalist (international finance and business) program to prepare America for merger into the planned world government. It would be difficult for a world government to deal with all of the State and local governments we have. In fact, the plan laid out in the early 1940's shows that, initially, it won't even deal with all of the countries. They will first be incorporated into regional superstates such as the European Union and the planned North American Union as a step toward the eventual merger into one. Seeing the difficulties they are having with dissatisfaction in the EU, it is clear that the planners were wise not to try to grab everything at once. Don't be fooled into thinking that is not still the plan. You can see the 1940's map and plan in the New World Order-Death of America post in my lostliberty blog.

Anyone who wants to console themselves with the wishful thinking that such conglomerations of Nations will be “democratic” should read the “NEW VOICE” post in lostliberty which is an analysis of a UK Financial Times article.

Here is the list that I like to think of as the Corporate Traitors List. Many individual members of the CFR may well not be totally familiar with its plans and might balk if they realized what they were contributing to, but I don't believe there is any chance that the same holds true for corporations. I'm certain that they must know what they are doing, at least those within the corporation who are promoting membership in the Council know.

Here's the list and url.

A couple of names on the list gave me a chuckle. Long ago I turned down a job offer from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce when I first investigated them and thought them to be a tool for the destruction of small, local businesses. The man who offered me the job was stunned when I declined. His attitude seemed to radiate disbelief. Nobody turns down the U.S. C. of C.

The other that caused a chuckle was AARP. I was briefly a member until I started getting propaganda from them about their lobbying efforts to get more from the taxpayers. I quickly realized that they were an organization of socialist gimmee gangsters. Now I see from their Council membership that they are international socialists, or, as I like to call them, Internazis.
