Republicans’ Immutable America
Part II: The Intelligence Agencies
By Servando Gonzalez
August 1, 2015
In Part I and Part II of this series, I mentioned
how, to conservative Republicans, nothing evolves; nothing changes.
To them, everything remains the same, forever and ever. Their
view of the world is focused on immutability.
In the previous articles, which I devoted to the police and the
military, I explained how the view conservative Republicans have
of the police and the military, which was adequate fifty years
ago, is outdated, because currently the police and the military
have not much to do with the image conservatives keep in their
minds. Far from being agencies to defend and protect Americans,
today’s American police and military have become oppressive
forces to guarantee submissiveness at home and abroad.
Nevertheless, tough conservative Republicans have a benign image
of current U.S. intelligence agencies (CIA, NSA, DIA, DHS and
others), contrary to the police and the military, those agencies
didn’t evolve over time from their mission to serve and
protect the American people. Since their very creation, the true
purpose of these agencies was to serve only the interests of the
oil magnates, international bankers and transnational corporations
who created them.
Traditionally, the U.S. had no central intelligence agency. Usually,
intelligence needs had been carried out by Military Intelligence,
Naval Intelligence, the Secret Service, the Customs House the
Bureau of Investigation of the U.S. Department of Justice and
the State Department’s own intelligence agency. The first
attempt to create a civilian, independent intelligence agency
was made by a group of Wall Street bankers and oil magnates, particularly
Most books about the Central Intelligence Agency claim that the
CIA was an offshoot of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS).
What they don’t mention, however, is that the OSS itself
was an offshoot of a select group of scholars handpicked in the
Fall of 1917 by Colonel Edward Mandell House, President Woodrow
Wilson’s confidential adviser, acting on behalf of powerful
Wall Street bankers to act as spies and intelligence analysts
allegedly to brief President Wilson about the U.S. options for
a postwar world, which eventually turned into a veritable intelligence
agency. This secretive group was called “the Inquiry.”
Since its very creation the Inquiry was organized and acted like
an intelligence agency. In the first place, it was divided in
several study groups. Some of these groups studied different geographic
areas and countries: Africa, Austria-Hungary, Balkans, the Far
East, Italy, Latin America, Pacific islands, Russia, Western Asia
and Western Europe. Other groups were devoted to study Diplomatic
History, Economics, International Law and Cartography. This division
was quite similar to what later was known as the CIA’s “desks.”
Secondly, the Inquiry’s activities were surrounded in secrecy.
Even its bland, disingenuous name, “the Inquiry,”
was adopted to hide the true purpose of the organization.
Thirdly, the Inquiry’s activities were divided among four
general categories: planning, collecting, digesting, and editing
the raw data. This roughly corresponds to the CIA’s intelligence
cycle: planning and direction, collection, processing, production
and analysis, and dissemination.
The newly created intelligence agency the conspirators disingenuously
called the Inquiry served the international bankers so well that
they decided to make it permanent. A few days after the end of
the conference, a group of conspirators from the U.S. and Britain’s
Round Table Groups met at the Hotel Majestic, where the British
delegation was staying, to talk about how to continue their intelligence
and espionage experiment. To this effect, they planned the creation
of a permanent espionage agency, with branches in London and New
York, to continue serving their interests. As usual, they used
an innocuous, disinforming name, Anglo-American Institute of International
Affairs, as a cover to hide its real espionage and intelligence
Just a few months later, however, the American branch of the conspirators
decided to go independent, and created their own espionage agency.
It was named the Council on Foreign Relations. Most of the Inquiry
members later joined the CFR when it was created in 1921.
If you still don’t know what the Council on Foreign Relations
is, who its members are, what its role is in dictating the U.S.
foreign and domestic policy, or what its ultimate goal is, you
are not alone, because most Americans are not aware of it. And
this lack of awareness is not by mistake, but by design, which
explains why the CFR is not mentioned in U.S. History textbooks
or barely mentioned by the mainstream press despite the fact that
many editors of the most important American newspapers and magazines
are CFR members.
Though apparently just another club for the East Coast Establishment
wealthy, particularly Wall Street bankers, the CFR is a very secretive
organization. Since its creation, its activities have been private
and confidential. It is CFR policy not to publish the minutes
of its proceedings.
Since its very creation, the CFR reflected the psychology, mindset
and interests of its creators, the Warburgs, the Rothschilds,
the Rockefellers and other international bankers. The CFR’s
intelligence and espionage activities increased when Nelson and
David Rockefeller took control of the organization. Like their
grandparent John D., the Rockefellers, particularly David and
Nelson, always have shown a special fascination for the activities
of intelligence, espionage and covert action as a way to advance
their business interests and increase the family’s fortune.
Like all intelligence agencies, the Council on Foreign Relations
is a semi-secret society: although it is not secret where its
headquarters are located and who are its senior executives, nobody
really knows about its secret activities, much less its secret
goals. Like all intelligence agencies, the CFR has listed members
and secret ones. Like all intelligence agencies, the CFR has a
department specialized in information collection and analysis.
But, contrary to conventional intelligence agencies, the intelligence
analysts of this department do not work in-house, but live a parasitical
life disseminated among other government and private institutions
like the CIA, the NSC, the State and Defense departments, the
Pentagon, the mainstream press, universities, think tanks and
Like all intelligence agencies, the CFR has a department specialized
in psychological warfare, subversion, insurgency, and paramilitary
operations —functions that, until very recently, had been
mostly carried out by one of its branches: the CIA. Currently,
however, after the conspirators gained more control over most
key U.S. government areas, including a large segment of senior
U.S. military officers, they don’t need the CIA anymore
and have transferred these functions directly to the U.S. military.
Like all intelligence agencies, the main job of some CFR members
is to recruit spies and agents of influence, as a way to infiltrate
other organizations they want to control, in the U.S. and abroad.
In the case of ambitious and intelligent, but morally and ethically
challenged young people, once the CFR recruiters find them and
decide to proceed with their recruitment, the first step is usually
granting them a Rhodes Scholarship. If they successfully pass
this first step, they are offered a grant to study at the London
School of Economics. In 1941 President Franklin Roosevelt established
the first central intelligence agency of the United States, the
Office of Coordination of Information. The man chosen to head
the new office, which became the Office of Strategic Services
(OSS) in June 1942, was William J. Donovan.
Nevertheless, the authors who attribute to President Roosevelt
the creation of the Office of Special Services miss a very important
point: like most American presidents before and after him, Franklin
D. Roosevelt was a puppet put in the White House and closely manipulated
by the CFR puppeteers. Prominent in this group of close advisors,
who FDR euphemistically called his “brain trust,”
were Harry Dexter White, Harry Hopkins, George Marshall and Henry
Morgenthau, Jr., all of them CFR secret agents. They were an early
version of today’s National Security Council advisors surrounding
Most officers of the OSS, the WWII intelligence agency, were Wall
Street lawyers and bankers. There is abundant evidence proving
that Wall Street bankers were instrumental in helping Hitler to
grab power in Germany, and later did business with Nazi Germany
before and during the war. Therefore it makes sense to think that
not all of the men and women who joined the OSS did so out of
patriotism or altruism, to fight the Nazis or to protect the interests
of the American people, but to protect their own interests. Actually,
one of the OSS’s main secret missions during WWII was to
help senior Nazi war criminals escape with their gold and to protect
German corporations like the I.G. Farben, who had been collaborating
with the Nazis while associated with Wall Street banks.
On July 26, 1947, President Harry S. Truman signed into law the
National Security Act establishing the National Security Council
(NSC). It also created the Central Intelligence Agency as well
as the Secretary of Defense, the Joints Chiefs of Staff and a
separate Air Force branch of the military. This marked the official
beginning of the Cold War, an artificial creation of the CFR conspirators.
As the name implies, the role of the Central Intelligence Agency
was to act as a clearinghouse to gather intelligence provided
by other existing intelligence agencies and collate it. It was
not supposed to gather information. Even more important, it had
no authority to carry on covert operations abroad.
But, less than a year after it was created, CFR agents in the
NSC illegally assumed executive powers and, on June 18, 1948,
they produced NSC 10-2, a directive that authorized the CIA to
conduct not only psychological but also all types of covert operations.
The National Security Council was the first step in the creation
of an aberration known as the national security state. Soon after
it was created, the NSC became an unaccountable power on its own
bringing only insecurity to the American people.
The National Security Council is a key element in understanding
how the CFR conspirators indirectly control the U.S. government.
It is the visible head of the conspirators’ fifth column
infiltrated inside the U.S. government. Though NSC members have
taken an oath of allegiance to defend the U.S. Constitution, their
true allegiance is to the CFR conspirators.
There is a question that may come to mind: Why did the conspirators
need a new intelligence agency, the CIA, when they already had
an excellent one, the CFR?
The answer is relatively simple: they didn’t need another
intelligence agency, and did not create a new one, because, as
I explained above, the CIA has never been an intelligence agency
in the true sense of the word —at least, not for the CFR
conspirators who created it. So, again, why did they create the
CIA if not to profit from its intelligence gathering and analysis
The CFR conspirators had enormous economic power to buy supporters
and critics, but they also needed physical power to intimidate
the cowards and punish the rebels. So, since late in the 19th
century they began using the U.S. military as their strong arm
to enforce their policies. The long list of American military
interventions all around the world, especially the Cuban-Spanish-American
war, marked the beginning of “American imperialism,”
— or, more properly, “Wall Street imperialism.”
These military interventions on behalf of the Wall Street Mafia,
which have gained the U.S. so many enemies around the world, were
the direct result of this raw deal for the American people.
But eventually the world changed, and it became more and more
risky and problematic for the CFR conspirators to keep openly
using the U.S. armed forces, particularly in Latin America, as
the main tool to impose their will upon other peoples.
So, the CFR conspirators needed an option short of the use of
direct U.S. military action when coercion and intimidation alone
cannot do the job. Consequently, perhaps following Sun Tzu’s
dictum that all warfare is based on deception, the conspirators
decided to create their own illegal private army. And the best
way to create this army without alarming the American people and
the world was by making it invisible. Therefore, they created
it surreptitiously, keeping it hidden from public scrutiny under
the cover of a legitimate U.S. government organization.
Therefore, using their secret agents infiltrated in the U.S. government,
in 1947 the conspirators forced down the throats of naive, or
corrupt American politicians, the National Security Act, which
created an organization they planned to use to fully exert their
puppeteers’ control over the American presidents: the National
Security Council. And an important component of the National Security
Act was the creation of a Central Intelligence Agency, which they
never planned to use as an intelligence agency, but as a cover
to hide their military arm, now in the form of covert operations.
The CIA proved to be exactly the right type of organization the
conspirators needed to help them accomplish their illicit purpose
of conducting their pillage and plundering all around the world.
In the first place, it was for free, because the American taxpayers
were paying for it. Secondly, thanks to the CIA’s operational
principles of secrecy, compartmentation and need-to-know inherent
to all intelligence services, it was relatively easy to hide its
real activities from both the American public and non-CFR-controlled
CIA employees who were unaware of the Agency’s true goals.
Following the trend, and using the pretext of protecting us from
foreign enemies, they later created the NSA and, most recently,
aberrations like the Department of Homeland Security, the Transportation
Security Administration, and the rest of the alphabet soup of
newly-created intelligence agencies, many of which we have been
never told about.
As the information leaked by Edward Snowden revealed, the NSA’s
true goal is not spying on America’s potential enemies —
a job at which they have proved to be totally inefficient —
but to spy on the CFR conspirators’ potential business competitors
— which include most of America’s allies all around
So, I think that the only rational, sensible thing to do is to
terminate these so-called civilian “intelligence agencies,”
and keep this job in the hands of the U.S. military.
Intelligence agencies, like all organizations, have a covert goal:
the advancement of their creators’ interests. The very nature
of intelligence agencies make it that the amount of effort the
organization devotes to its covert goal, in detriment of its overt
one, goes beyond what is considered socially acceptable.
There is no place for such types of organizations to exist in
a democratic republic. If someone wants to advance his business’
interests—a logical goal in it—the honest thing is
to create his own organization for that goal, and to pay for it.
That means that if Exxon, Monsanto or the United Fruit wants to
advance their interest in Latin America, they should create their
own intelligence services, pay for it, and use them to protect
Nevertheless, what is not ethical is using CIA or the NSA, paid
by American taxpayers, to do it. Currently, however, we Americans
are facing an even worse case. The CFR conspirators are using
the U.S. intelligence agencies to help them impose their New World
Order upon the peoples of the world, including us. Allowing them
to continue doing it is tantamount to committing suicide.

4. In 1953, CIA Director, Allen Dulles (CFR) used the CIA to overthrow
Iranian nationalist leader Mohammed Mossadegh to protect the interests
of the Rockefellers’ Standard Oil, the Royal Dutch-Shell,
and the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company had formed a powerful oil cartel
after Mossadegh nationalized Iran’s oil production, breaking
the oil cartel. The Iranian operation was so successful to Dulles
and his associates, that they repeated it a year later. In1954
the CIA planned and directed Operation Ajax, the coup d’état
that overthrew Guatemala’s democratically elected head of
state. A few months after being elected, Arbenz nationalized some
unused land owned by the United Fruit Company.
Allen Dulles and his brother John Foster Dulles, (CFR) were partners
in the Wall Street law firm of Sullivan & Cromwell. Among
their important clients was the Rockefeller-owned United Fruit.
With John Foster Dulles heading the State Department and Allen
Dulles heading the CIA, they were the czars of Eisenhower's foreign
policy, and they made sure that the interests of Sullivan &
Cromwell clients weren't ignored.
In September 1973, after a long process of destabilization orchestrated
by the CIA and CFR agents Henry Kissinger and Fidel Castro, democratically
elected Chilean President Salvador Allende was overthrown by a
coup d’état. The Agency had run a powerful propaganda
campaign against Allende, depicting him as a Stalinist would-be
despot and a tool of Moscow and Castro. Actually, during a long
visit to Chile Castro began the process of destabilization of
the Allende government that culminated in the coup d’état.
It was not a coincidence that ITT, one of the US corporations
actively involved in the coup, was headed by John McCone, (CFR)
a former CIA Director.
