The Round Table Group: Googling the Elite's Who's Who

Google the Elite's Who's Who One of my favorite columnists in Canada is Judi McLeod. When I want the latest news on Maurice Strong and the Earth Charter, the UN, the environmental agenda and their New Age bedfellows, Judi's my gal. She's very good at connecting the dots when it comes to these subjects and doggedly pursues her prey. With a 30-year career with the establishment's press this type of reporting, and insight, is astonishing.

Judi McLeod even understands the significance of the Rockefeller family, the Trilateral Commission and the inherent conflict of interest these affiliations bring to an individual - especially when they're appointed to an independent inquiry designed to get the bottom of insider dirty dealings.

The January 25th cover story, by Judi, on Canada Free Press titled "Anti-American think tank pushing Canada back to prominence on world stage", however, left a lot to be desired as far as digging into the true significance of the Canadian Institute of International Affairs. As a fellow Canadian myself, I was disappointed that she missed a great opportunity to teach her readers about the Canadian arm of what John H. Hylan, Mayor of New York from 1918 - 1925, described as "the invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation."

What follows is a brief description of the elite Anglo-American Establishment and then I'll provide a cool little tool I've created, called a bookmarklet, that will aid in investigating an individual's interconnectedness and degree of affiliation with these master-elite organizations.

The Society of the Elect

“ONE WINTRY AFTERNOON in February 1891, three men were engaged in earnest conversation in London. From that conversation were to flow consequences of the greatest importance to the British Empire and to the world as a whole. For these men were organizing a secret society that was, for more than fifty years, to be one of the most important forces in the formulation and execution of British imperial and foreign policy.”

- Professor Carroll Quigley (November 9, 1910 - January 3, 1977), The Anglo-American Establishment, p.3

The three men who founded the secret society were: its leader Cecil Rhodes; William T. Stead; and Reginald Baliol Brett, later known as Lord Esher, friend, confidant and advisor to Queen Victoria, King Edward VII and King George V.

The 1891 meeting hashed out the details of this secret society and they agreed that there would be an inner circle called "The Society of the Elect," and an outer circle, to be known as "The Association of Helpers." Shortly before the meeting ended Alfred Milner was also added to the cabal by Stead.

In The Anglo-American Establishment, Professor Quigley matter-of-factly informs us that the society exists to this day in modified forms, variously called: "Milner's Kindergarten" (1901-1910), "the Round Table Group" (1910-1920), "The Times crowd," "the Rhodes crowd," the "Chatham House crowd," the "All Souls group," and the "Cliveden set." Further, he states that these groups are to be perceived as different names for the outer circle of The Association of Helpers. Signs, oathes and formal initiations were eliminated and the only distinction between the inner and outer circle was the fact that The Society of the Elect knew they were a part of a secret society - whereas the outer group(s) did not - but both were equally willing to cooperate with one another to achieve their common goal.

The Round Table Group

The Round Table Group, as identified among conspiracy "theorists" today - and the occasional honest scholar with integrity like Professor Quigley - includes the following elite organizations: Bilderberg Group, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the Club of Rome. No one has definitively identified who the The Society of the Elect are today (or have they?) but the above-mentioned groups are certainly the most powerful modern manifestations of the network that comprises the Anglo-American Establishment's outer circle; or The Association of Helpers.

It's the Chatham House crowd - the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA), the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Canadian Institute of International Affairs (CIIA) - that's the story behind the story of Judi McLeod's article.

The Inquiry

According to the CFR's Handbook of 1936, several leading members of the delegations to the Paris Peace Conference met at the Hotel Majestic in Paris on May 30, 1919, "to discuss setting up an international group which would advise their respective governments on international affairs."

The Handbook goes on to say, "At a meeting on June 5, 1919, the planners decided it would be best to have separate organizations cooperating with each other. Consequently, they organized the Council on Foreign Relations, with headquarters in New York, and a sister organization, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, in London, also known as the Chatham House Study Group, to advise the British Government. A subsidiary organization, the Institute of Pacific Relations, was set up to deal exclusively with Far Eastern Affairs. Other organizations were set up in Paris and Hamburg..."

From the Council on Foreign Relations website:

“On May 30, 1919, a little group of diplomats and scholars from Britain and the United States convened at the Hotel Majestic, billet of the British delegation, to discuss how their fellowship could be sustained after the peace. They proposed a permanent Anglo-American Institute of International Affairs, with one branch in London, the other in New York.”

From the Canadian Institute of International Affairs website:

“The origins of the Canadian Institute of International Affairs (CIIA) go back further than its founding in 1928. Descriptions of its formation usually begin with the 1919 Paris Peace Conference. ... British and American participants there expressed their concern at the widespread public apathy and ignorance of international affairs. The Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) was founded in London in 1920 in response to this concern and amongst the original members of the RIIA were ten Canadians. By 1926 there were in Canada about twenty-five members of the RIIA (many of whom were also members of the League of Nations Society which had been formed in Canada in 1921). The Americans meanwhile returned to New York to discover that the Council on Foreign Relations had been formed the previous year and they joined it rather than forming an American international institute.”

So, as you see it's all in the family when it comes to the Chatham Group. When faced with the reality of these facts the CIIA should be properly identified as a regional-specific "invisible government." For over three-quarters of a century the Canadian Institute of International Affairs have indoctrinated its members with the same propaganda spewed by the American and English Chatham branches: that national boundaries should be obliterated and a one-world rule established. The "major study" to be released? Business as usual. Instructions for members with key positions in government, the mass media, financial institutions, multinational corporations, the military, and the national security apparatus; to affect public policy accordingly and further the agenda.

Judi McLeod writes: "Canada Free Press rates CIIA as anti-American because it links to on its website." I'm afraid the truth of the matter is much more sinister than the CIIA being a "left think tank." Putting aside the elite's conquer and divide Hegelian tactic of an orchestrated right-left political dichotomy for a moment; the stakes are much higher than anti-americanism, anti-right or anti-bush: anti-sovereignty is the covert operation of the last hundred years. Treasonous persuasion turned into policy, in the very country in which each Chatham House sister organization member resides.

“I think there are 25,000 individuals that have used offices of powers, and they are in our Universities and they are in our Congresses, and they believe in One World Government. And if you believe in One World Government, then you are talking about undermining National Sovereignty and you are talking about setting up something that you could well call a Dictatorship - and those plans are there!”

A Scripted Tool For the Lazy Researcher

Whenever I come across an unfamiliar name during my continuous searches across cyberspace, I always apply a test that allows me to gauge quickly whether I should investigate this person further. If the individual is affiliated with any of the Round Table Groups - the Bilderberg Group, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, or the Club of Rome - you can be sure that they are in the top echelon of the international elite. The greater the number of affiliations and/or card-carrying memberships, the greater the power. This is an incontrovertible fact, conveniently omitted by the journalists and historians of officialdom.

Here's a few example searches querying a person's affiliation with either the Council On Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, Royal Institute of International Affairs, Canadian Institute of International Affairs, Bilderberg, Club of Rome, Bohemian Grove, IMF or World Bank: Roy MacLaren, Canadian Institute of International Affairs Board of Directors Chairman; David Rockefeller, Illuminati Superstar, self-proclaimed beneficiary of circumstance; Henry Kissinger, war criminal, accused satanic pedophile, disinformation specialist; Stanley Fischer, multitasking economic hitman; Maurice Strong, dubbed the Wizard Of the Baca Grande, and environmental godfather.

Works pretty well for the start of any investigation, I think. We can take this idea further and automate the process through a bit of javascript wizardry in the href attribute of the link itself. This way we can bookmark it - the same way as any other link - and have it accessible instantly on any page we later browse.

Here's the example. Highlight Zbigniew Brzezinski and click this link, Google the Elite's Who's Who, to see it in action!

Firefox ScreenshotIf your browser of choice is either IE 5 - 6, Mozilla 1.6+, Firefox 1.0+ or Safari 1.2+ then this bookmarklet/favelet should work like a charm. Saving it for later use on any page you browse is as simple as saving a normal bookmark. Drag the Google the Elite's Who's Who link to your toolbar or right click it and go "Bookmark this Link..." for Mozilla and Firefox users, or for IE users: "Add to Favorites..." Note: If you're using IE you will get a message - "You are adding a favorite that may not be safe. Do you wish to continue?". It does that for any Javascript bookmark. The bookmarklet is safe to use, so you can go ahead and choose "Yes" to continue to save it.

If the script finds no selection on the page then the prompt box comes up empty and you can enter in your own query. Go ahead and save the bookmarklet now and test it out on a page ... like this one. Highlight one of the names and go click the bookmark - which should be in the favorites folder - to see it in action. I dragged mine right onto my toolbar near the location bar so I can have instant one-click access.

Go try it out and send me an email if you find this tool interesting or if you're having problems using it on your particular platform.
