Today the path of total dictatorship in the United States can be laid by strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by the Congress, the President, or the people. Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system, another body representing another form of government - a bureaucratic elite.Author: Senator William Jenner, Source: February 23, 1954 speech
From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played... a definitely recognizable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the Nineteenth Century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.Author: Winston Churchill, Source: http://www.fpp.co.uk/bookchapters/WSC/WSCwrote1920.html
Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the Field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.Author: Woodrow Wilson, Source: The New Freedom, 1913
Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.Author: Theodore Roosevelt, Source: http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/collections/troosevelt_film/trfpcp...
From 1936 through 1960 the Republican presidential nominee was selected by a small group of secret kingmakers who are the most powerful opinion makers in the world. They dictated the choice of the Republican presidential nominee just as completely as the Paris dressmakers control the length of women’s skirts.Author: Phyllis Schlafly, Source: A Choice Not an Echo, p. 6
After several months had passed, I began to realize the 1932 Democratic ‘platform’ prepared for the voters was merely something... to forget after the ballots had been counted. Instead of... implementing the platform.. out popped a so-called ‘Brain Trust.’ This was a small group of men.. who advanced some political ideas of the advisors, (who were) some CFR leaders, a few bankers and other internationalists, to the administration for legislative action.Author: Curtis Dall, Source: FDR: My Exploited Father-in-Law, p. 91
A presidential candidate may be ‘drafted’ in response to ‘overwhelming popular demand.’ but it is well known that his name may be decided upon by half a dozen men sitting around a table in a hotel room.. There are invisible rulers who control the destinies of millions. It is not generally realized to what extent the words and actions of our most influential public men are dictated by shrewd persons operating behind the scenes.Author: Edward Bernays, Source: Propaganda, pp. 60-1
