Council on Foreign Relations (CFR):  The CFR was founded in 1921 by Colonel House at the direction of its financial backers.   Patterned on the British Royal Institute of International Affairs, finances for the CFR came from the same players that set up the Fed: J.P. Morgan; John D. Rockefeller; Bernard Baruch; Paul Warburg; Otto Kahn; and Jacob Schiff.

The significance of the CFR's role in both the Fed and government cannot be overemphasized.   It is a political octopus with tentacles everywhere. At least 14 CFR members have served the Fed including two of the last three Fed chairmen. The current chairman, Bernanke, last addressed the CFR in August of this year in a speech entitled "Global Economic Integration: What's New and What's Not."  

Since 1921, thousands of CFR members have served in Congress, as Ambassadors, and lesser Administrative posts; senior positions have included 8 presidents, 7 vice presidents, 21 secretaries of war/defense, 20 secretaries of the treasury, 18 secretaries of state, and 15 CIA directors. Apart from these, membership is made up of Supreme Court Justices, Federal Judges, Wall Street investors, international bankers, foundation executives, Think Tank executives, lobbyist lawyers, NATO and Pentagon military leaders, wealthy industrialist, media owners and executives, university presidents and key professors, and wealthy entrepreneurs.

Currently, CFR membership exceeds 4,000. More than 150 of the largest U.S. and international corporations are members. The CFR touts that m embers have unparalleled access to world leaders, senior government officials, members of Congress, and prominent thinkers .

The implication of sordidness of and within our government is only now beginning. The stench of sordidness will become more evident in part 3 when discussion of the CFR continues and an attempted coup, an overthrow of Franklin D. Roosevelt, will be reviewed .
