CFR Bankers Plot Coup
And Genocide
EIR senior economic staffer Richard Freeman spent two days at a closed-door meeting inside the New York Council on Foreign Relations' mansion. The power elite now shares Lyndon LaRouche's long-held assessment that its financial system is likely to explode, explosion, but the "big guys" have no idea how to save their system.
Freeman witnessed the CFR crowd preparing to come out on top after a coup d'etat against the U.S. President. And, one of their spokesmen boasts freely of his desire to see tens of millions of Africans killed off by the AIDS epidemic. These are the descendents of the same Wall Street-City of London bankers' cabal that financed Adolf Hitler's rise to power--with the help of George W. Bush's granddaddy, Prescott Bush.
The following is a taste of a far larger study, and related studies, published in the July 28th edition of EIR. Copies of this 80-page EIR will be sent free to those who call 1-888-347-3258 and say they read about it on

- CFR Bankers Plot Coup & Genocide -
By Richard Freeman
On July 12-13, the New York Council on Foreign Relation held, at its exclusive mansion-headquarters in Manhattan, a conference on "The Next Financial Crisis: Warning Signs, Damage Control and Impact." The conference examined the potential for a global financial crash; it drew together 250 people, most of them bankers, investors, corporation officials, and policymakers, mostly from the United States, but also from Europe. EIR attended.
The main theme of the conference was the continued work of the "Financial Vulnerabilities Project," a project which the CFR launched in 1999 with Wall Street banker Roger Kubarych as its director. During the past year, while U.S. policymakers and media have {publicly} raved about the soundness of the financial system, the CFR's "Financial Vulnerabilities Project" has held events and simulated "war-games" based on the assumption of a global financial meltdown.
What emerged as a dominant second theme reflecting the thinking of the CFR, was the enunciated policy that many tens of millions of Africans should be allowed to die by being denied treatment for AIDS. As one participant put it, "Those with AIDS in Africa should die quickly."
The CFR is the policy vehicle of the British and American financier oligarchy, which founded it in 1921. It dictates a considerable part of the policy of the U.S., including to the Democratic and Republican Parties. Much of the policy that emerges in official Washington comes from the CFR and its circle. The conference demonstrated the degeneration of the thinking of the CFR and U.S. policy elites, even relative to 20 years ago.
Though the financial crisis was often accurately described at the conference, no sound solution or cure was presented at all.
- Destroying Africa -
At the conference, Peter Schwartz made a naked recommendation for the murder of tens of millions of people in Africa. Schwartz directed two of the conference sessions on "Scenario Planning and Simulation," and the war-game simulation chapter of his recent book, "The Art of the Long View" was used to run the CFR's war-game simulation of a financial meltdown. Schwartz formerly directed the intelligence-linked Scenario Planning Department of Royal Dutch Shell, a key institution of the British oligarchy. (It was set up by Lord Victor Rothschild.) He is the founder of Wired magazine and the founder and current head of the Global Business Network, both of which are at the forefront of the New Age-New Economy movement.
On July 13, Schwartz had the following exchange with EIR.
{EIR}: Yesterday, at a session of the conference that you directed, you stated that we should not keep alive those who have AIDS in Africa. You are writing off part of that continent's population.
{Schwartz:} In 1986, I did a study on this for AT&T, Royal Dutch Shell, and Volvo. We concluded that people who have AIDS in Africa should not be kept alive; they spread the disease. It is better they should die quickly.
(Schwartz claimed, without credibility, that the study was "just an intellectual exercise.")
{EIR}: Why not have those who have AIDS in Africa, live in decent places where they will not transmit the disease...?
{Schwartz:} Concentration camps.
Schwartz snapped this riposte out quickly. This is exactly what the Hollywood mafia and death lobby lied that Lyndon LaRouche was proposing when his movement put Proposition 69, for a program to fight AIDS and save lives, on the California ballot in 1986.
{EIR}: I'm talking about places where people would live in good housing, with special diets that give them 50% higher protein intakes....
{Schwartz:} Concentration camps.
{EIR:} Concentration camps are places where people were worked to death, and then gassed.
{Schwartz:} Oh, well. Well, the bubonic plague was very good: It killed people right away.
Schwartz then brought Robert Hormats into the conversation. Hormats, the former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Economic Affairs, and currently vice chairman of the international division of Goldman Sachs investment bank, is a major figure in the Gore campaign. After Schwartz made some more remarks about getting rid of persons with AIDS in Africa, Hormats concurred, "This is just natural selection." Schwartz beamed at the horrifying conclusion.
Schwartz and Hormats represent the genocidal view of Lord Bertrand Russell, who in 1951 thought "bacteriological war may prove effective" in "ridding" the world of non-white people. To achieve that objective, "a Black Death [should] spread throughout the world once in every generation."
- Global Financial Meltdown -
The CFR's "Next Financial Crisis" was the third in a series of events of the Financial Vulnerabilities Project. On Sept. 29, 1999, the Project held its first event, reporting, "Our premise is that perhaps the most dangerous near-term threat to U.S. world leadership, and thus indirectly to U.S. security, would be a sharp decline in the U.S. securities markets that touched off a worldwide financial disturbance. It would likely stun the U.S. economy...."
Then on Jan. 22, 2000, the CFR held its second big event, a simulation war-game/global financial meltdown. This eight-hour simulation, which was supposed to cover a 15-day period in July 2000, involved a coup against the United States.
The CFR conscripted 75 persons to its headquarters, including bankers, former Treasury Secretaries, etc. Participants were divided into four teams and sent into four rooms, with the ability to communicate with each other and a command HQ via computer. The four teams covered a) monetary-financial, which dealt with the functions of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors; b) economic and trade, which dealt with the functions of the U.S. Treasury Department; c) regulatory matters; and d) national security.
The game-players were hit with breakdowns in several markets, which increased in severity over the eight hours. The market assumptions included the Dow Jones Average falling by stages, from 10,000 to 7,100; the price of oil shooting up to $36 per barrel; the dollar plummeting against the euro and the yen; a large failure in the derivatives market; Ukraine defaulting on payments to Russian oil companies, which increased the possibility of a Russian-Ukrainian confrontation, etc.
But according to a panel at the July 12-13 conference, which reported on results of the Jan. 22 simulation, the simulation {started with a coup against the President of the United States.} James Jones, the former U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, 1993-97, played the role of National Security Adviser during the Jan. 22 simulation. On July 12, Jones reported a critical feature in the simulation: "We assumed that the President of the United States was incapacitated. We had to decide whether to take powers from the President."
The July 12 "report-back" also divulged that a critical feature of the effort was that, according to a person who played the vice chairman of the Federal Reserve, "We kept the main markets open, and let other things go. We lowered rates and put in liquidity. The main thing was to create the perception of confidence."
The July 12-13 conference and the Jan. 22 simulation confirm that, despite media prattling, the highest levels of the financier oligarchy are making preparations for something quite different from unlimited prosperity.
At the July 12-13 conference, the danger of financial breakdown was often accurately presented, but no solution such as putting the cancerous system through bankruptcy reorganization, was even remotely discussed. Peter Schwartz's call to hasten the death of tens of millions of Africans, in the face of a financial crisis which the CFR knows to be intensifying, is the logical outcome of its thinking, and a terrible warning about the future.
