This group of Anglo-American financiers and industrialists from ten different countries, met in April, 1968 at Rockefeller's private estate in Bellagio, Italy, at the request of Aurelio Peccei, the Italian industrialist who had close ties to Fiat and the Olivetti Corporation. He claimed to have solutions for world peace and prosperity, which could be accomplished through world government. The Club of Rome was established with a membership of 75 prominent scientists, industrialists , and economists from 25 countries, which along with the Bilderbergers, have become one of the most important foreign policy arms of the Roundtable group.
Many of the Club of Rome executives were drawn from NATO, and they have been able to formulate a lot of what NATO claims are its policies. Through Lord Carrington, they were able to split NATO into two factions, a left-wing political group, and its former military alliance.
The first Club of Rome conference in the U.S. was in 1969, where the American branch is organized as "The American Association of the Club of Rome". Among its members were: Norman Cousins (honorary Chairman of Planetary Citizens), John Naisbitt (author of Megatrends), Amory Lovins (a speaker at Windstar, John Denver's New Age center in Snowmass, Colorado), Betty Friedan (founding President of NOW, the National Organization of Women), Jean Houston and Hazel Henderson (New Age authors and speakers), Robert O. Anderson and Harlan B. Cleveland (CFR members and part of the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies), Sen. Claiborne Pell, and Rep. Frank M. Potter (staff director of the House Subcommittee on Energy).
For the most part, the Club functions as a research institute on economic, political, and social problems, and claim that "there is no other viable alternative to the future survival of civilization than a new global community under a common leadership." On September 17, 1973, they released a Report called the "Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System", which was prepared by Mihajlo Mesarovic and Eduard Pestel, which revealed the Club's goal of dividing the world into ten political/economic regions, called "Kingdoms", which would unite the entire world under a single form of government. These regions are: North America, Europe, Japan, South Africa and Australia, Asia, South America, North Africa and the Middle East, Central Africa, India and Indo-China, and China. The term "Kingdoms" was omitted, when the plan was published in a book called Mankind at the Turning Point, which said that the solutions to the problems of the world could only "be developed in a global context."
Howard Odum, a marine biologist at the University of Florida, who is a member of the Club of Rome, was quoted in the August, 1980 edition of Fusion magazine, as saying: "It is necessary that the United States cut its population by two-thirds within the next 50 years." He didn't say how this would be accomplished. However, one of their reports, "Limits to Growth", in 1973, dealt with the problem of overpopulation. During the Carter Administration, a task force was appointed to expand upon this report, and on July 24, 1980, a two-volume document called "Global 2000 Report", which had been written by former Secretary of State Cyrus R. Vance, was presented to President Carter, and then Secretary of State Edward S. Muskie. It attempted to project global economic trends for the next twenty years, and indicated that the resources of the planet were not sufficient enough to support the expect dramatic increase in the world population. The report called for the population of the U.S. to be reduced by 100 million people by the year 2050.
About six months later, the Council on Environmental Quality made recommendations based on the Report, called "Global Future: A Time to Act." They suggested an aggressive program of population control which included sterilization, contraception and abortion. In August, 1982, the Executive Intelligence Review published a report called "Global 2000: Blueprint for Genocide" which said that the two aforementioned Presidential reports "are correctly understood as political statements of intent - the intent on the part of such policy centers as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the International Monetary Fund, to pursue policies that will result not only in the death of the 120 million cited in the reports, but in the death of upwards of two billion people by the year 2000." Throughout the world, the Club of Rome has indicated that genocide should be used to eliminate people who they refer to as "useless eaters."
This would be accomplished by using limited wars in advanced countries, and even a limited nuclear strike at a strategic location; starvation through created famines and diseases in Third World countries. This echoed an earlier plan. In 1961, Robert McNamara, McGeorge Bundy, and Dean Rusk, all CFR members, were concerned that there were no studies concerning long-term plans for peace, and they wanted to study the direct and indirect ramifications of war. They wanted a study which would explore ways to control the economy during peace-time. A group of of fifteen individuals, including a psychiatrist, anthropologist, a specialist on international law, biochemist, physicist, astronomer, mathematician, literary critic, historian, military expert, economist, sociologist, and an industrialist, began meeting in an underground nuclear shelter in Hudson, New York to design a long-range plan to control the population. Since then, some have speculated that the think-tank known as the Hudson Institute, actually conducted the Study. Started by Herman Kahn in 1961 "to help determine the entire future of the U.S.- and time permitting, much of the world beyond," many of there members and fellows belong to the CFR.
This secret report (which wasn't released until September, 1966), known as the Report from Iron Mountain on the Possibility and Desirability of Peace, appeared to be a blueprint for the future of this country, and contained recommendations that included plans for governmental control and manipulation, depopulation, gun control and disarmament, an international police force, and concentration camps. The Report stated some of the invisible functions of war: "...provides anti-social elements with an acceptable role in the social structure...the younger, and more dangerous, of these hostile social groupings have been kept under control by the Selective Service System...man destroys surplus members of his own species by organized warfare...enables the physically deteriorating older generation to maintain control of the younger, destroying it if necessary." The Report also made this observation: "War has provided both ancient and modern society with a debatable system for stabilizing and controlling national economies. No alternate method of control has yet been tested in a complex modern economy that has shown it is remotely comparable in scope or effectiveness. War fills certain functions essential to the stability of our society; until other ways of filling them are developed, the war system must be maintained, and improved in effectiveness."
In the 1976 novel Ceremony of the Innocent by Taylor Caldwell, she effectively explains the rationale behind their actions: "...there will be no peace in the tormented world, only a programmed and systematic series of wars and calamities- until the plotters have gained their objective: an exhausted world willing to submit to a planned Marxist economy and total and meek enslavement- in the name of peace."
Have their plans for genocide already started? I am referring to the disease known as AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome), which has become a plague in our society, spreading to 91 nations. The U.S. News and World Report stated a few years ago: "If there is not a cure for AIDS within the next thirteen years, tens of millions will die." Even though there has been alot of talk about AIDS awareness and prevention, the full danger of it has been covered-up by the Center for Disease Control, and the media, which has increasingly shown its pro-homosexual bias.
In the 1972 Bulletin of the UN's World Health Organization (WHO), volume 47, page 251, it says: "An attempt should be made to see if viruses can in fact exert selective effects on immune function. The possibility should be looked into that the immune response to the virus itself may be impaired if the inflicting virus damages, more or less selectively, the cell responding to the virus." This sounds like the AIDS virus, so why is it being discussed by a health organization?
Derivatives from sheep and cattle have been commonly used to manufacture vaccines, however, certain viruses common to these animals can interact indefinitely, forming a new strain of deadly viruses called retro-viruses. In 1974, the National Academy of Sciences recommended that "Scientists throughout the world join with members of this committee in voluntarily deferring experiments (linking) animal viruses." Dr. Robert Strecker, a practicing gastroenterologist, with a Ph.D. in pharmacology, who was hired as a consultant to work on a health-care proposal for Security Pacific Bank, said: "I don't think there is any doubt that AIDS is a man-made problem. The question is whether it was created either accidentally or intentionally. I believe the AIDS virus was requested, predicted, produced, and deployed."
The most common theory about the origin of AIDS, was that it came from green monkeys in Africa. Yet several virologists have said that the AIDS virus does not occur naturally in any animal. Besides, it would have been statistically impossible to reach the point we are at now, just from a single episode. If the AIDS virus had originated with the monkeys, then the disease would have surfaced with the Pygmies, who are closer to them, and use them as a food source, yet, it appeared first in the cities. Further damaging evidence comes from the fact that AIDS practically occurred simultaneously in the United States, Haiti, Brazil, and Central Africa.
