The United Nations
With World War II still being fought, delegates from the United States and twenty-five other nations met and issued a "Declarations of the United Nations," the first official use of the term "United Nations." In 1943 representatives of the USSR, Great Britain, Nationalist China, and the United States met in Cairo, Egypt where plans were laid for the creation of a world organization. Another high level conference was held in Tehran, where Joseph Stalin was brought into the planning.
In 1944 the initial drafts of the UN Charter was drafted at Dumbarton Oaks in Washington DC. Finally, at a meeting in Yalta in February, 1945, the allied leaders agreed to form a world governmment organization. It was at this meeting that Roosevelt, Churchill. and Joseph Stalin agreed that the Officer in charge of United Nations Military Affairs would always be disignated by Russia.
In San Francisco, 1945, the Charter was finalized. More than forty of the U.S.delegates were, or would shortly become, members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). One of these was James T. Shotwell, a trustee of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (CEIP), who participated in that groups planning session where the trustees decided to use war as the means to "alter the life" of our nation. The CEIP president during the 1910-1919 period was former Secretary of State Elihu Root, one of the earliest members of the CFR. He served from 1931 to 1937 as the CFR's honorary president.
The formal report issued by the Reece Committee made note of these organizational linkages. Congressman Reece stated, "Miss Casey's report shows clearly the interlock between the Carnegie Endowment for international Peace, and some of it's associated organizations, such as the Council on Foreign Relations and other foundations, with the State Department. Indeed these foundations and organizations would not dream of denying these interlocks. They note it proudly in reports. They have undertaken vital research projects for the department; virtually created minor departments or groups within the department for it supplied advisors and exceutives from its ranks, fed a constant of personnel into the State Department trained by themselves or under programs which they have financed; and have much to do with the formation of foreign policy both in principal and detail.
They have, to a marked degree, acted as direct agents of the State Department. And they have engaged actively, with the expenditure of enormous funds , in propagandizing (educating) the public in support of the policies which they have helped to formulate.
What we see here is a large number of foundations, primarily the Rockefeller Foundation, the Carnegie Foundation of New York and the Carnegie Foundation for International Peace, all using their enormous public funds to finance a one-sided approach to foreign policy and to promote it actively - among the public by propaganda, and in the government through infiltration. The power to do this comes out of the power of the vast funds employed. ["Report of the Special Committee on Tax-Exempt Foundations" Government Printing Office, Dec. 15 1954 as cited in Dan Smoot, "The Invisible Government"] [Appleton, Wi. Western Islands, 1965]
In addition to the dozens of CFR members involved in the United Nations' founding, seventeen individuals were named by the State Department itself as having helped to shape U.S. policies leading to the creation of the UN. All but one were later identified as secret communists.
The close relationships between these individuals from the CEIP, the State Department, the Communist Party, and the CFR - all of whom were working to create the United Nations - is typified by Alger Hiss. From his position of a high official of our nations State Department, he was named Secretary General of the UN's founding conference and became its most important figure. The CFR welcomed him to membership in 1945. After the UN Charter had been accepted and the organization began to function, Hiss left the State Departnment in 1947 to become CEIP president. Then in the much celebrated espionage case ending in January 1950, Hiss was convicted of perjury for lying about his communist party membership which dated back to the 1930s.
Hiss was therefore a high State Department official, a secret communist party member, the Secretary General of the UN's founding conference, and the president of the CEIP. Many other UN founders had most of these same credentials.
In 1941, the CEIP's annual yearbook revealed that its economics and history division was planning for "a new world order." Subsequent editions of the Yearbook discussed the organizations close cooperation with the CFR and numerous foundation-supported organizations, in efforts to bring the United Nations into existence.
This was taken from "Changing Commands: The Betrayal of America's Military," "Shadows of Power," and the Congressional Record.
The United Nations was formed as a communist organization, has acted as a communist organization, and remains a communist organization.
In 1953 Norman Dodd accepted as Research Director for the House of Representatives Special Committee to Investigate Tax-exempt Foundations and Comparable Organizations. The purpose of the committee, spelled out in the House resolution creating it, was to "determine which such foundations comparable and organizations are using their resources for un-American and subversive activities." The panel, chaired by Representative Carroll Reese[R-Tenn.], decided at the outset to focus on the 12 largest foundations [Carnegie, Ford, Rockefeller, and others] because they accounted for 70% of all foundation assets.
One of the committtee's first moves was to send a formal inquiry to the groups to be investigated. Upon recieving his copy of the inquiry, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace [CEIP] president Joseph E. Johnson contacted Dodd by telephone and suggested that, instead of his answering all the questions, he would cooperate in having the committee send a stafff member to foundation headquarters to examine CEIP minute books. Dodd accepted the offer at once and assigned the task to attorney Kathryn Casey, instructing her to focus on the decade 1910-1919. Returning from her assignment shocked and dazed, she reported to Dodd and he summarized her findings as follows:
In the minutes of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace about 1911] the trusties raised a question. "Is there any means known to man more effective than war, assuming you wish to alter the life of an entire people?" At the end of the year, they came to the conclusion that there was no more effective means to that end known to man. So, they then raised question Number 2, " How do we involve the United States in a war? [see Hearings, U.S. Congress, House of Representatives, Special Committee to investigate Tax-exempt Foundations and Comparable Organizations, 83rd Congress, second session, 1954; William H. MecLhany 11--The Tax Exempt Foundations [Westport, CT; Arlington House,1980]; The Hidden Agenda, A video presentationcontaing Norman Dodd's in person account [Westlake Village, CA.; American Media,1991]; and Rene A, Wormser, Foundations [New York, Devin- Adair Co. 1958].
The Reece Committee's work was abruptly terminated in 1954. But Dodd had gathered enough data to conclude the leaders of numerous large foundations had been using resources at their disposal to destroy the independence of the United States and create a world government ruled by themselves and like minded individuals.
Several reasons why these men wanted to "alter the life" of the people in the United States come to mind. They sought to change the American people's desire to stay out of the affairs of other nations; they wanted to compromise, even destroy, our nations independence; and their ultimate goal was to control all mankind through a world government they would establish. There was nothing patriotic in all this; the motive was solely and entirely a grandiose and sinister grab for power.
Kathryn Casey's work bared additional plans of the foundation's trustees. They pointed to Miss Casey's further discovery that the trustee's met in 1917 " and had the brashness to congratulate themselves on the wisdom of their original decision because already the impact of war had indicated it would alter life ...in this country." The trusteees were so committed to having war change America that they even had the audacity, said Dodd, "to dispatch a telegram to Mr. Wilson cautioning him to see that the war did not end to quickly.
According to Dodd, Miss Casey also came upon information showing that these same trustees later secured financial help from the Rockefeller, Guggenheim, and other foundations for two additional purposes: to gain influence over the State Department and to gain control over American education as a way of insuring that " there would be no reversion to life in this country as it existed' prior to world war one.

And so came about the beginning of the dumbing down of American children and the government schools and the use of war "to alter the life of the American people.
