associates among the “elite” class. One of his students was Bill Clinton. In Tragedy and Hope, Quigley wrote: “There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and many of its instruments.... in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known.”3 Quigley says it all began with a wealthy Englishman named Cecil Rhodes, who’d worked with financiers like the Rothschilds to gain a monopoly over South Africa’s diamonds and gold. “The Rhodes Scholarships, established by the terms of Cecil Rhodes’ seventh will, are known to everyone. What is not so widely known is that Rhodes in five previous wills left his fortune to form a secret society, which was to devote itself to the preservation and expansion of the British Empire.”4 Funding for “the widely ramified activities of this organization,” later came from groups “associated with J.P. Morgan, the Rockefeller and Whitney families.” In looking to expand after the First World War, front organizations were set up—the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London and, in New York, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), “a front for J.P. Morgan and Company in association with the very small American Round Table group.”5 The CFR in 1928, according to Quigley’s list, had John W. Davis as its president —the very same fellow who, along with Morgan and others, established the American Liberty League that tried to use General Butler in the plot against FDR. Also among the CFR’s leading lights was attorney Allen Dulles, future director of the CIA and member of the Warren Commission to investigate JFK’s assassination. And “closely allied with this Morgan influence were a small group of Wall Street law firms” that included another future Warren Commission member, John McCloy. Same cast of characters, from FDR to JFK. The goal of this cabal of global financiers, writes Quigley, was “nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a
