The Quigley Factor

For the record, let me state that I don’t give a damn about the private (albeit sick and depraved) life of Bill Clinton. I do care about the office of the presidency and the republic.
The ‘perception’ of Bill Clinton, although titillating, is less significant that the ‘reality’ of the man.
Hillary Clinton has stated, and her husband has passively acknowledged agreement, that there is a “vast right wing conspiracy” pursuing an agenda of Clinton bashing for “personal power and profit”. She is right about the conspiracy. She is right about the pursuit of power and profit. She is wrong about where it originates.
When Bill Clinton accepted the Democratic Party’s nomination for president he said that the man who started him on the road to his “New Covenant” was one of his history professors at Georgetown University. “As a teen-ager, I heard John Kennedy’s summons to citizenship. And then, as a student, I heard that call clarified by a professor I had named Carroll Quigley….”
Most people had never heard of the professor before. Who was Quigley? Carroll Quigley earned three Harvard degrees in the 1930s. He taught at Harvard, and then at Princeton, and in 1941, started his 28-year career at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service. Quigley became the instructor of numerous future diplomats and government officials.
New York’s Macmillan Company released the 1,300-page “Tragedy and Hope” by Quigley in 1966. That book documents the existence of a powerful international “network” whose goal was “nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands” (see page 324) “able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.”
Quigley acknowledged the intellectual originators of the plot as John Ruskin of England’s Oxford University and his pet pupil, Cecil Rhodes. The concept (you can find it on page 131) was, “to federate the English-speaking peoples and to bring all the habitable portions of the world under their control.”
Rhodes had some major league help from the Rothschild banking empire and subsequently amassed a humongous fortune from the diamond and gold mines in southern Africa. He “left part of his fortune to found the Rhodes Scholarships at Oxford” to train young and ambitious students for the “secret society” (again check out page 131) they formed in 1891.
According to Professor Quigley, “In 1909-1913 they organized semi-secret groups, known as Round Table groups. In 1919 they founded the Royal Institute of International Affairs — similar Institutes of International Affairs were in the chief British dominions and the United States (where it is known as the Council on Foreign Relations) during the period of 1919-1927 (se page 132).
The anti-communist (Quigley called them “Radical Right”) factions within the U.S. were elated to find Quigley stating: “There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes Communists act.” (To find this you have to last up to page 950).
Most important however, is Quigley’s description of the network’s behind-the-scenes plotting to bring the Federal Reserve into creation, it’s worry and concern when a congressional committee started to investigate the huge tax-exempt foundations, and the serious threat posed to the plotters by Sen. Joseph McCarthy and presidential candidate Barry Goldwater.
Bill Clinton, a Quigley student, Rhodes Scholar, Bilderberger, Council on Foreign Relations and Trilateral Commission member, is following the Ruskin-Rhodes-CFR-Quigley blueprint. I ain’t making it up. It wasn’t sent to me in the vast right-wing conspiracy newsletter. It is in the book, “Tragedy and Hope”.
