Dear Friend of Radio Liberty,
"A global elite has emerged over the past several decades that has vastly more power than any other group on the planet. . . . That such a group exists is indisputable. Heads of state, CEOs of the world's largest companies, media barons, billionaires who are actively involved in their investments, technology entrepreneurs, oil potentates, hedge fund managers, private equity investors, top military commanders, a select few religious leaders, a handful of renowned writers, scientists, and artists, even terrorist leaders and master criminals, meet the above criteria for membership . . . . I identified just over 6,000 people who qualify." David Rothkopf, Superclass: The Global Power Elite and the World They Are Making, 2008. preface. 
"We make war that we may live in peace."
Aristotle, 384-322 B.C. 
"In his first will Rhodes states his aim still more specifically: 'The extension of British rule throughout the world, the perfecting of a system of emigration from the United Kingdom and of colonization by British subjects of all lands wherein the means of livelihood are attainable . . . and finally the foundation of so great a power as to here- after render wars impossible and promote the best interests of humanity.'"
Frank Aydelotte, The Vision of Cecil Rhodes, 1946, p. 5 
"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. . . It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during these years . . . the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government which will never again know war but only peace and prosperity for the whole of humanity."

"War is at best barbarism. . . . Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, more vengeance, more desolation. War is hell."
Attributed to General William Sherman, June 19, 1879 
There are four important questions that you should be prepared to answer.
(1) Why is the world changing? The world is changing because a small group of men and women direct the course of world events. David Rothkopf is a member of the CFR. He was managing director of Kissinger and Associates, and he knows the men and women who run the world. He wrote:
"A global elite has emerged over the past several decades that has vastly more power than any other group on the planet. . . .
That such a group exists is indisputable. Heads of state, CEOs of the world's largest companies, media barons, billionaires who are actively involved in their investments, technology entrepreneurs, oil potentates, hedge fund managers, private equity investors, top military commanders, . . . artists, even terrorist leaders and master criminals, meet the above criteria for membership. . . . I identified just over 6,000 people who qualify." 
Why did David Rothkopf write a book about the "Global Elite," and why did the Establishment publish, promote, and distribute a book that exposed the Ruling Class? I believe they wanted to divert public attention from the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderbergs, the Trilateral Commission, and the other occult organizations that direct the course of world affairs. After David Rothkopf gained his readers' confidence, he ridiculed the people who believe the Trilateral Commission is a subversive organization, and wrote:
"'The Trilateral Commission is a joke' said one especially dismissive former member, who was a senior official in several Republican U.S. administrations. 'It's a bunch of has-beens who do not have power except to convene themselves - and to feel a little bit more important because they convened themselves.'" David Rothkopf failed to mention the fact that between 1977 and 2008:
- - Every president and/or Vice-President of the United States was a member of the North American Chapter of the Trilateral Commission.
- Six out of the eight presidents of the World Bank were members.
- Eight out of the ten U.S. Trade Representatives were members.
- Seven out of the twelve U.S. Secretaries of State were members.
- Nine out of the twelve Secretaries of Defense were members.
- At least eleven key people in the Obama administration are members today. 
Are all those people "has-beens?"
(2) Why did the U.S. participate in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the first Gulf War?
World War I was fought to establish the League of Nations, and end war. World War II was fought to establish the United Nations, and end war. The Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the First Gulf War were fought to establish America's dominance, and end war.
(3) Why is the U.S. fighting in the Middle East today?
I believe the current conflict in the Middle Ease is a prelude to a much larger war (World War III) that will be fought to end war. The concept isn't new. Aristotle said:
"We make war that we may live in peace." 
(4) Who funds the Islamic terrorist movement?
Prior to the 9/11 attack the Islamic terrorist movement was primarily funded by Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and the CIA.  At the present time the U.S. finances Pakistan. The Pakistani government finances their army, the army finances their intelligence agency (the ISI), and the ISI finances the Islamic terrorist movement. The ISI is also funded by the CIA.  Why is the U.S. funding a terrorist movement that is killing American soldiers in Afghanistan today?
This series of Radio Liberty letters deals with the secret cabal that controls the United States, and their effort to unite the world. That was the goal of the ancient secret societies, the Mystery Religions, the Kabbalah, the Gnostics, the Knights Templar, the Freemasons, and the Illuminati, but they invariably failed. Then, in 1877, a young man named Cecil Rhodes devised a plan that has succeeded, and, barring divine intervention, the occult movement will establish a world government.
Cecil Rhodes' inspiration came from John Ruskin who taught at Oxford University. Ruskin was deeply involved in the occult.  Cecil Rhodes' financing (primarily) came from Lord Rothschild who was involved in the occult. Cecil Rhodes purchased most of the major gold and diamond mines of South Africa, amassed a fortune, and used his money to fund a secret society, and the Rhodes Scholarship Trust.  Cecil Rhodes joined the Freemasons, and swore the required occult oaths.  Cecil Rhodes' Plan was modified after he died, but his objective wasn't changed. Cecil Rhodes wanted to unite the world. 
Frank Aydelotte led the Milner Group (the American contingent of the secret society) during the first half of the twentieth century. His book, The Vision of Cecil Rhodes, reproduced part of Cecil Rhodes' first will. Frank Aydelotte wrote:
"In his first will Rhodes states his aim still more specifically: 'The extension of British
rule throughout the world, the perfecting of a system of emigration from the United
Kingdom and of colonization by British subjects of all lands wherein the means of
livelihood are attainable . . . and finally the foundation of so great a power as to here-
after render wars impossible and promote the best interests of humanity.'" 
How did Cecil Rhodes pursue his goal? He precipitated the Boer War because he wanted to create a peaceful world. What happened? The British army sustained 100,000 casualties, 18,000 - 28,000 women and children died in the concentration camps, and large regions of South Africa were destroyed. 
Professor Quigley's book, Tragedy and Hope, describes the events that took place at that time, and similar events take place today.
Professor Quigley's words are reproduced in bold type. My response is printed in regular type.
"By 1895 the Transvaal Republic presented an acute problem. All political control was
in the hands of a rural, backward, Bible-reading, racist minority of Boers, while all
economic wealth was in the hands of a violent, aggressive majority of foreigners
(Uitlanders), most of whom lived in the new city of Johannesburg. The Uitlanders,
who were twice as numerous as the Boers and owned two-thirds of the land and nine-
tenths of the wealth of the country, were prevented from participating in political life
or from becoming citizens (except after fourteen years' residence) and were irritated
by a series of minor pinpricks and extortions (such as tax differentials, a dynamite
monopoly, and transportation restrictions) and by rumors that the Transvaal
president, Paul Kruger, was intriguing to obtain some kind of German intervention
and protection." 
Professor Quigley referred to the Boers as "a rural, backward, Bible-reading, racist minority" because they were Christians, many were poor, and Professor Quigley supported Cecil Rhodes' effort to unite the world. Elsewhere, Professor Quigley wrote (on page 950 of Tragedy and Hope):
"I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years, and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960's, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments . . . in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known." Professor Quigley continued:
"At this point in 1895, Rhodes made his plans to overthrow Kruger's government by
an uprising in Johannesburg, financed by himself and Beit, and led by his brother
Frank Rhodes, Abe Bailey, and other supporters, followed by an invasion of the
Transvaal by a force led by Jameson from Bechuanaland and Rhodesia." 
Cecil Rhodes bribed officials, and got several members of his secret society placed in key positions in the English government because he wanted support for the coming revolution in Johannesburg, and the invasion of the Transvaal. 
Professor Quigley wrote:
"Flora Shaw used the The Times to prepare public opinion in England, while Albert Grey (a member of Rhodes' secret society - ed) and others negotiated with Colonial Secretary Joseph Chamberlain for the official support that was necessary. Unfortunately, when the revolt fizzled out in Johannesburg, Jameson raided anyway in an effort to revive it, and was easily captured by the Boers. The public officials involved denounced the plot, loudly proclaimed their surprise at the event, and were able to whitewash most of the participants in the subsequent parliamentary inquiry." 
Similar things have taken place in the U.S.
"Rhodes was stopped only temporarily. . . . For almost two years he and his friends
stayed quiet, waiting for the storm to blow over. Then they began to act again.
Propaganda, most of it true, about the plight of Uitlanders in the Transvaal Republic
flooded England and South Africa from Flora Shaw, W.T. Stead, Edmund Garrett
and others. . . . ." 
Cecil Rhodes recognized the importance of the media. Flora Shaw wrote for The Times (in London), W.T. Stead published The Pall Mall Gazette and Review of Reviews that were read throughout the British Empire, and Edmund Garrett published The Cape Times,the major newspaper in South Africa.
Cecil Rhodes had Alfred Milner (second in command of the secret society) appointed high commissioner of South Africa, and he precipitated the Boer War. Professor Quigley wrote:
"Milner was made high commissioner of South Africa (1897); Brett (one of the four founding members of Rhodes' secret society - ed) worked his way into the confidence of the monarchy to become its chief political adviser during a period of more than twenty-five years (he wrote almost daily letters of advice to King Edward during his reign, 1901-1910." 
A similar situation existed in the United States. Colonel Edward Mandell House met Woodrow Wilson in 1911, gained his confidence, controlled President Wilson's administration from 1913-1918, and influenced other world leaders during that era. 
Fifteen years later (in 1932) Colonel House met Franklin Delano Roosevelt, gained his confidence, convinced FDR he should expand the power of the federal government, and "was called by some the Hidden Master of the New Deal."
How did Colonel House control President Wilson and President Roosevelt? He was a mystic, and he was deeply involved in the occult. 
Colonel House (and other members of the Inquiry) met the members of the Milner Group (Rhodes' secret society) at Versailles, and established the Council on Foreign Relations that controlled the U.S. government until David Rockefeller organized the Trilateral Commission in 1973. 
Professor Quigley continued:
"By a process whose details are still obscure, a brilliant, young graduate of Cambridge,
Jan Smuts, who had been a vigorous supporter of Rhodes and acted as his agent in
Kimberley as late as 1895 and who was one of the most important members of the
Rhodes-Milner group in the period 1908-1950, went to the Transvaal and, by violent
anti-British agitation, became state secretary of that country (although a British
subject) and chief political adviser to President Kruger. . . ." 
I believe Cecil Rhodes sent Jan Smuts to the Transvaal to precipitate the Boer War. How did Jan Smuts incite the conflict? He gained the confidence of President Paul Kruger, ranted against the British government, criticized (his friend) Alfred Milner, the High Commissioner of South Africa, became secretary of state, and convinced President Kruger that the British troop movements that were taking place foreshadowed a British invasion of the Transvaal Republic. As a result, Paul Kruger told Jan Smuts to send an ultimatum to Alfred Milner, and that precipitated the Boer War.
A similar situation exists in Iran today. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad makes ridiculous statements, threatens Israel, rants against the United States, and does everything he can to foment a war with the U.S. that will destroy his nation.
Professor Quigley continued:
"Milner made provocative troop movements on the Boer frontiers in spite of the
vigorous protests of his commanding general in South Africa, who had to be
removed; and, finally, war was precipitated when Smuts drew up an ultimatum
insisting that the British troop movements cease and when this was rejected by
Cecil Rhodes' agent, Jan Smuts, wrote the ultimatum that precipitated the Boer War.
Professor Quigley continued:
"The Boer War (1899-1902) was one of the most important events in British imperial
history. The ability of 40,000 Boer farmers to hold off ten times as many British for
three years, inflicting a series of defeats on them over that period, destroyed faith in
British power. Although the Boer republics were defeated and annexed in 1902,
Britain's confidence was so shaken that it made a treaty with Japan in the same year
providing that if either signer became engaged in war with two enemies in the Far
East the other signer would come to the rescue." 
The agreement led to the Russo-Japanese war (1904-1905) that killed 130,000 soldiers and 20,000 civilians.
Why did Cecil Rhodes incite the Boer War? He wanted to establish "the foundation of so great a power as to hereafter render wars impossible and promote the best interests of humanity."
Eighty-six years after the Russo-Japanese War ended David Rockefeller is said to have addressed the Bilderberg meeting held in Sand, Germany, and stated:
"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine, and other
great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their
promises of discretion for almost forty years. . . . It would have been impossible for us
to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity
during these years. . . . But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march
towards a world government which will never again know war but only peace and
prosperity for the whole of humanity." 
Note the similarity between the words in Cecil Rhodes' first will, and David Rockefeller's statement.
"War is at best barbarism. . . . Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have
neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud
for blood, more vengeance, more desolation. War is hell." (attributed to General
Sherman in 1877) 
And Rudyard Kipling wrote:
"When the Cambrian measures were forming,
They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons,
that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us
and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said:
"Stick to the Devil you know.'"
Rudyard Kipling, The Gods of the Copybook Headings 
We must tell the American people about the current effort to incite a war with Iran, and the dire consequences of the coming war. Will the public heed our warning? Our job is to tell them, and recognize the fact that the battle is the Lord's because:
"My sin - oh the bliss of this glorious tho't -
That is our wonderful promise.
My sin - not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
And, Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll,
The trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend,
'Even so' it is well with my soul." 
Barbara and I appreciate your loyal support, and your faithful prayers.
Yours in Christ,
