BY WAY OF DECEPTION, WE SHALL DO WAR-PART 2

By 1953, the CIA had 7,200 people working on covert actions, activities that took 74% of the CIA‚Äôs yearly budget. The CIA always recruited their leaders from the elite class ‚Äď businessmen, credible journalists, Ivy League scholars and Wall Street lawyers and bankers. Irving Kristol, Paul Weyrich, William Simon, Richard Mellon Scaife, Frank Shakespeare, and William F. Buckley, Jr. were connected to the CIA.
George Washington, in his farewell address, advised Americans to avoid an ‚Äúunnatural connection with any foreign power‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúto have with them as little political connection as possible.‚ÄĚ Apparently, future leaders ignored that advice. By June 1953, the U.S. government had given Israel $293,000,000 with an additional of $200,000,000 as Export-Import bank loans. The New York Herald-Tribune of March 12, 1953 reported that, in the first five years of Israel‚Äôs existence, including gifts, the total amounted to $1,000,000,000. This was in addition to the money they extracted from Germany.
Beginning in 1953, Irving Kristol (CFR), ‚Äúthe godfather of neo-Conservatism,‚ÄĚ and a former Trotskyite (opposed Stalin‚Äôs focus on Russia in preference of a worldwide system), co-edited the magazine Encounter, published in London and financed by the CIA. It was the voice of the CIA-funded Congress for Cultural Freedom and regularly promoted Fabian Socialism and the Labour Party. Kristol was also the editor of Commentary (1947-1952) and the editor of The Reporter (1959-1960). Kristol moved his family back to the U.S. by 1960. Daniel Bell (CFR) and Kristol founded The Public Interest (1965-2002), a publication of Freedom House, under the direction of George Field, its executive director. Field was also chairman of the RAND School for Social Science which was owned by the American Socialist Society and financed by the Garland Fund. Both Bell and Kristol were subsidized by the CIA, through the Congress for Cultural Freedom, the same organization that funded some of Gloria Steinem‚Äôs social engineering activities. Bell worked for Henry Luce (S&B, CFR) and advocated the dissolution of all borders and local governments.
