Original title: Southern Strategy: Assault on the American Republic published in EIR January 2001
The political success of Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter’s “Southern Strategy,” transforming the White House and Congress into bastions of white Southern power, would have been impossible, without the economic transformation of the United States from the greatest industrial and scientific nation-state in history, to a post-industrial nation of white-collar accountants, real estate brokers, computer programmers, retail clerks, and hamburger-flippers.
This transformation of America, over the past 30-plus years, has been characterized by the collapse of the urban industrial and cultural centers of the North–New York, Detroit, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Cleveland, etc.–and the gradual emergence of the “New South” as the heartland of America’s post-industrial economy.
Today, Southern cities like Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, and even Charlotte, North Carolina dominate the new economy” and house the multinational corporate and banking headquarters that preside over the deregulated looting of every last remaining income stream.
This Houston-Atlanta-Charlotte nexus can be dubbed “Southern Strategy, Inc.” Of course, it was Wall Street–most prominently the financial interests associated with Harriman, Morgan, and Rockefeller–which set this shift in motion. But the deregulated monster represented by such corporate creatures as Enron Corp. in the energy field, the Rainwater interests buying up hospitals, or Corrections Corporation of America in private prison operations, signals as process of financial speculation and physical-economic chaos, which Wall Street can no longer control. With President George W. Bush and Vice President Richard Cheney moving from Texas to Washington, the power of this Southern-based corporate looting apparatus is almost certain to grow at an even more accelerated rate.
We take up one significant slice of that corporate octopus, the Texas-centered network of oil industry giants that have been tied to the political fortunes of the Bush clan for much of the last century.
Behind the Bushes
The role of the Bushes in pushing deregulation, like their role in grabbing control of physical assets, is in the service of something much older and nastier.
Sitting at the center of this web, and typifying the level of corruption, are two Texas-based energy industry giants, each with ties into the nastiest of the Wall Street and European financial oligarchies: Schlumberger and Enron.
By far the older and filthier of the two is Schlumberger, the intelligence apparatus masquerading as an oil services company. Schlumberger is one of the two biggest oilfield services companies in the world, Halliburton being the other. While Schlumberger, the company, was formed in Paris in the early 1900s, the intelligence network which operates through it is much older, a part of the banking empire of the interlocked de Neuflize, Schlumberger, and Mallet-Prevost families, which have been running operations against the United States since the American Revolution. In Houston, the Schlumberger/Lazard nexus is closely allied with a nest of British assets centered around the Harriman interests and operating through a group of powerful law firms. E.H. Harriman was a 19th-Century railroad robber baron whose companies were fronts for the British royal family and their fellow aristocrats. Harriman’s agents in Houston included Baker & Botts, the law firm of former Bush Secretary of State James A. Baker III, which has also represented Schlumberger since the 1950s. The Bush family is also a creature of the Harriman networks and their British controllers, through both the Bush and the Walker sides of the family. Both George H.W. Bush’s father, Prescott Bush, and his uncle Herbert Walker were top officials of the Harriman investment bank, and the Harrimans, Lazard, and Scottish banker James Gammell funded the business and political career of Sir George (Prescott, Herbert, and Sir George were also members of Skull & Bones, the powerful Yale-based secret society). Also coming together in Houston were the British intelligence networks of Col. Edward Mandell House, the global oil cartel, and the “legendary” King Ranch.
Enron, which has an energy trading room in its Houston headquarters which rivals the trading rooms of the big Wall Street investment banks, is perhaps the single company most responsible for the chaos in today’s domestic energy markets. Its “success” in energy speculation has raised virtually every electricity bill, natural gas bill, and heating oil bill in the country, some of them by orders of magnitude,
Enron is a relative newcomer, but plays an important role in allowing the financial sharks, under the guise of deregulation, to get their hands on the income streams generated from the production and consumption of electricity, natural gas, and related energy products. Enron’s fortunes are directly tied to the Bush League: Enron is the single largest contributor to the political campaigns of President George W. Bush, and the firm hired as “consultants” a number of top officials of his father’s administration–including James Baker III, and Commerce Secretary Robert Mosbacher–after they left Washington. In return, these officials used their political pull to get Enron a series of lucrative contracts around the world. Enron chairman Kenneth Lay has been touted as a potential member of the Bush Cabinet, and Southern Strategy zealot Rep. Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) is widely known as “the Congressman from Enron.”
Enron is “Dubya” Bush’s biggest career patron, having given him more than $500,000, according to the Center for Public Integrity.
A Bit of Texas History
When Texas became a Republic in 1836, the political battle revolved around the forces of patriot Sam Houston on the one side, and Mirabeau Buonaparte Lamar on the other. Lamar was a member of the aristocratic, plantation-owning Lamar family of Georgia and New York. Houston was inaugurated as the first President of Texas in October 1836, with his bitter enemy Lamar as his Vice President. Under the Texas Constitution, Houston could not succeed himself in office, and not one, but two of his hand-picked successors died while campaigning for the Presidency, a fortuitous set of circumstances which helped Lamar become the second President of the Republic of Texas, in 1838.
This Texas-Georgia-New York connection is one of the recurring themes in this report, exemplified by the Carter-Menil Foundation of former President Jimmy Carter and Dominique Schlumberger de Menil, and the Houston connections of Atlanta-based Coca Cola. Coke chairman J.P. Austin was the Trilateral Commission member who helped Zbigniew Brzezinski recruit and train Jimmy Carter, to be the President of the Democratic Party’s version of the Southern Strategy. The Lamar tradition also remains strong in Texas: It was in the Lamar Hotel that the Houston elite gathered to play cards and run much of the state, and when Texas Commerce Bancshares celebrated the 150th anniversary of the Republic of Texas with an ad paying homage to the heroes of the Texas Revolution, leading the list was oligarch Mirabeau Buonaparte Lamar, with no mention of the patriot Sam Houston.
In the late 1800s-early 1900s, the government of the State of Texas was dominated by an alliance between the King Ranch and Col. Edward House. House, who later gained fame as Woodrow Wilson’s controller, was the son of a wealthy British plantation owner in Houston. Back in Houston, the House family groomed young Jesse Jones to take over as Houston’s leading light. In the 1920s, Jones became a real estate developer in New York, and among his partners was Robert Lovett, who succeeded E.H. Harriman as the head of the Union Pacific Railroad. Jones’s personal attorney was Capt. James Addison Baker of Baker & Botts, a firm which represented Harriman interests in Texas. Jones, in turn, passed the torch to what became known as the “8F Crowd,” so named because they gathered to play poker and run the state in Room 8F of Jones’s Lamar Hotel. The 8F crowd ran Houston and exerted considerable control over state affairs from the 1940s to the 1960s, and created institutions that continue to exert significant power today, notably three of the most powerful law firms in the country, Baker & Botts, Vinson & Elkins, and Fulbright & Jaworski. Until the late-1980s demise of the Texas banking system, these law firms were all closely associated with a major bank: Baker & Botts with Texas Commerce; Vinson & Elkins with First City; and Fulbright & Jaworski with Bank of the Southwest.
Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch
In 1983, Debrett’s Peerage Ltd., publisher of Debrett’s Peerage and Baronetage, issued a book entitled Debrett’s Texas Peerage, on “the aristocrats of Texas.” Featured quite prominently in the book was “The Royal Family of Ranching,” the Klebergs of the King Ranch.
“Robert Justus Kleberg, Jr., was a god among Texas ranchers,” the chapter on the King Ranch began. “They still talk about him today in reverent tones, not only on ranches around the world, but at `21,’ The Pierre, Saratoga, The Jockey Club and other exclusive enclaves which he used to frequent during racing season in the East.”
The New York Times has repeatedly referred to the spread as “the legendary King Ranch,” and Debrett’s said that before the ranch opened itself to oil production, it was known as “the Walled Kingdom.” The Klebergs, Debrett’s gushed, had “lifelong friendships with the Whitneys, Vanderbilts and other horsey families of the East.” The ranch has also been host to some of the most powerful oligarchs in the world, including Prince Johannes von Thurn und Taxis, hereditary head of the Venetian intelligence service, and Prince Charles of Britain. Anne Armstrong of the King Ranch was U.S. Ambassador to Britain in the 1970s, as well as being chairman of the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (PFIAB) from 1982 to 1990, under Reagan and Bush. 
The King Ranch was formed in 1857 by Captain Richard King, who had made his living as a steamboat captain running cargo and passengers along the Rio Grande River; he had arrived on the Rio Grande just after Gen. Zachary Taylor arrived with his army to defend the State of Texas against Mexico. King and his partner, Mifflin Kenedy, ran supplies for Taylor, in an operation which was actually an intelligence network operating under the cover of commerce. Just prior to the Civil War, King and Kenedy bought huge tracts of land just south of Corpus Christi; another member of the network was Charles Stillman, a border merchant who later moved to New York to found the National City Bank (a.k.a. Citibank). King’s principal lawyer in the early days was Stephen Powers of Brownsville, who had previously been a U.S. consul to Switzerland.
During the Civil War, the King Ranch was an important transshipment point for Confederate supplies, particularly when the Mexican port of Matamoros took on crucial importance after the Union blockade closed the ports in the South. The ranch also functioned as an intelligence center for the Confederacy.
The Klebergs entered the picture when Robert Justus Kleberg (“Kleberg the First,” according to Debrett’s) married Captain King’s daughter, Alice. When Captain King died in 1885, Kleberg took command of the ranch. Kleberg the First and Alice had two sons and three daughters. The elder son, Richard Mifflin Kleberg, went to Washington as a Congressmen, and hired a young man named Lyndon Johnson as an aide. The younger son, Robert, Jr., eventually took over the ranch from his father.
The business operations of the ranch in the mid-1980s were run by Jim Clement, the Princeton-trained son of Martin Clement, a former honcho of the Pennsylvania Railroad. One of Clement’s friends and regular guests was the late Prince Johannes von Thurn und Taxis, the aforementioned Venetian spook and oligarch.
The King Ranch got a financial boost when oil was discovered on the property, and royalties from Humble Oil & Refining (later bought by Exxon) started rolling in. With their social and political connections, and the oil money, the King-Kleberg heirs moved into the corporate world. 
In 1977, Prince Charles visited the Armstrong Ranch to play polo with Anne’s husband, Tobin Armstrong of the Armstrong Ranch; his brother John Armstrong of the neighboring King Ranch; John’s son Charles Armstrong, and oil heir Will Farish of Houston, among others.
Enter the Schlumbergers
On Jan. 10, 1901, Captain Anthony Lucas and Patillo Higgins discovered oil at Spindletop, Texas. The Spindletop salt dome contained enough oil to double the production of the Pennsylvania fields where John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil ruled, and allowed the United States to surpass Russia as the world’s leading oil producer. Oil had been drilled in Texas since 1866, but Texas had never come close to matching the output of Pennsylvania–until Spindletop. With the Spindletop gusher, a black-gold rush began, and fortune-seekers from all over the world poured into Texas. Among them were oligarchs and their agents, seeking to gain control over this new source of wealth. Over time, Houston became a center of the oil industry, and a captive of the British-dominated global oil cartel.
With Schlumberger came two important figures: Jean de Menil and his wife, Dominique Schlumberger de Menil. Jean, whose background had been deliberately muddied, was a Tsarist White Russian of some stature, who had fled Russia to avoid Communist reprisals, while Dominique was the daughter of company co-founder Conrad Schlumberger. As a top official of Schlumberger, Jean de Menil’s responsibilities included the company’s Ibero-American operations, while Dominique was a cultural and political warfare operative who founded the Rothko Chapel as a coordinating point for all sorts of unsavory operations, including terrorist networks involved in the assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat.
While the full story of Schlumberger’s intelligence remains the subject for further investigation, some aspects are already known. Jean de Menil, as documented in EIR’s book Dope, Inc., was a member of the Solidarists, a group comprised of Eastern European and White Russian fascists and feudalists. Many of the Solidarists had been officials of “quisling” pro-Hitler governments during World War II. A leading component of the Solidarist movement was a highly professional espionage, sabotage, and assassination network called the Narodnyi Trudovoy Soyuz (NTS). The NTS had been founded by Menshevik circles in Russia in the 1920s, and functioned as one of British Intelligence’s premier spy rings inside Russia. The principal Western financing conduit for the NTS and the Solidarist movement was the Tolstoy Foundation of New York, of which Jean de Menil was a director.
De Menil and Schlumberger were involved in helping to put Castro in power in Cuba, and later in attempts to overthrow him, in operations involving both the CIA and George Bush’s Zapata Offshore oil company. More importantly, Jean de Menil was a key figure in Permindex, the corporate front for the assassins of John F. Kennedy and the numerous attempts on the life of French President Charles de Gaulle. Permindex was closely linked with British Intelligence’s Special Operations Executive of Sir William Stephenson and Col. Louis Mortimer Bloomfield, and with the FBI’s secret Division Five, headed by Bloomfield. Schlumberger’s links with the intelligence community are also indicated by its close relationship to former CIA director George Bush, and the presence on its board today of former CIA director John Deutch. This is not to suggest that Schlumberger is a CIA “front,” however, but rather that Schlumberger is part of a much older oligarchic intelligence network, with tentacles into national intelligence agencies such as the CIA.
The Schlumberger/de Menil apparatus had strong ties to the Houston corporate world and ruling elite. Jean de Menil was, for a time, on the board of Bank of the Southwest, the bank closely interlinked with Fulbright & Jaworski, the firm which produced Nuremberg and Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski. Baker & Botts partner Dillon Anderson, an official in the Eisenhower administration, was on the board of the Schlumberger Foundation in the 1950s, and senior partner George Jewell was on the board of Schlumberger in the 1980s. Schlumberger is also closely linked with Lazard, which played a big role in financing Texas companies like George Bush’s Zapata and Pennzoil. Later, Dominique de Menil would co-found the Carter-Menil Center in Atlanta, with former President Jimmy Carter. A key liaison between Carter and de Menil was Charles W. Duncan of Houston, who is both a former president of Coca-Cola and Carter’s Secretary of Energy. Both Charles and his brother John House Duncan sat on numerous corporate boards of relevance to this network, including John Duncan’s seat on the King Ranch board.
Schlumberger family and board member Didier Primat has rather secretive operations in the Carolinas and Virginia, overlapping the intelligence and eugenics operations of the Smith-Richard Foundation and the family of Bush legal counsel C. Boyden Gray. Primat also held the property title to Mary Sue Terry, who, as Virginia Attorney General, led a witch-hunt against the Lyndon LaRouche movement, throwing a number of innocent individuals into state prison on trumped-up charges.
These Texas-Virginia-Carolina connections also played a role in the rise of Charlotte, N.C. as a national banking center. Charlotte’s North Carolina National Bank (NCNB) has, through an ever-larger series of acquisitions, transformed itself into Bank of America, one of the largest banks in the world, while crosstown rival First Union has grown into a top-ten bank in the United States. NCNB significantly extended its reach in 1989, when it bought the bankrupt First RepublicBank of Dallas for virtually nothing, in a move that helped conceal the maneuvering that was used to keep First RepublicBank’s doors open until after Presidential candidate (and former director) George Bush had won the Texas primary. NCNB transformed itself into NationsBank in 1991, with the acquisition of C&S/Sovran, itself the union of Georgia and Virginia banks. After a number of smaller acquisitions, NationsBank bought the San Francisco-based Bank of America in 1998; with the takeover, NationsBank renamed itself Bank of America, with the headquarters, and the control, remaining in Charlotte. Bank of America is number 12 on the list of top contributors to the political campaigns of Gov. George W. Bush, and in its NCNB days, the bank was caught running dirty tricks against the LaRouche movement.
The Bush League
After graduating from Yale, young Skull & Bones member George Herbert Walker Bush got his start in the business world at Cleveland-based Dresser Industries, where his Bonesman father, Prescott Bush, was a director from 1930 until he entered the U.S. Senate in 1952. Dresser was controlled by the W.A. Harriman & Co. bank,  where Prescott Bush worked and where George H.W. Bush’s uncle and namesake, George Herbert “Bert” Walker, was president. After stints in Cleveland and California, young Bush moved to the Permian basin oilpatch town of Odessa, Texas, circa 1949, to work for Dresser’s IDECO subsidiary. While Bush would cultivate an image as a Texan, the money which would finance his career came from Wall Street and the City of London; under the cowboy hat was a preppie Connecticut Yankee.
Not long after arriving in Texas, Bush decided to strike out on his own, forming the Bush-Overbey Company with landman John Overbey, funded with $300,000 raised through Uncle Bert Walker. A significant portion of that money came from the City of London and from Scottish investor James (later Sir James) G.S. Gammell of Edinburgh’s Ivory & Sime. Other investors included the Lazard-linked publisher of The Washington Post, Eugene Meyer, and daddy Prescott Bush. Gammell, by the way, would later partner with Schlumberger’s Didier Primat in Adams Bank.
In 1953, Bush decided to link up with Midland oilmen the Leidtke brothers, the sons of a Tulsa judge who became a top lawyer for the Mellons’ Gulf Oil. They formed a new company, Zapata Petroleum, financed through Uncle Herbert; Herbert kept a chunk of the company for himself, and sold some to James Gammell, who got a seat on the board. Basically, Herbert Walker raised $500,000, and the Leidtkes’ Tulsa crowd raised a like amount. In 1954, the company formed Zapata Offshore, a for-hire drilling subsidiary. Officially, the offshore company was formed to take advantage of the new leases being offered in the Gulf of Mexico, but there were other reasons as well. Zapata’s first rig, the Scorpion, was leased by Gulf Oil in 1958 (three years before the Bay of Pigs fiasco) and started drilling just 54 miles north of Isabela, Cuba, a perfect base for covert intelligence operations against Castro.
In 1959, Bush and the Leidtkes decided to split their company into two parts, with Bush taking the CIA-connected Zapata Offshore, and the Leidtkes taking the rest. Bush became CEO of Zapata Offshore and moved it to Houston, while the Leidtkes expanded Zapata Petroleum through mergers, eventually transforming it into the Houston-based Pennzoil. But it wasn’t long before Bush cast his eye on politics.
In those days, the Democratic Party, dominant in Texas, was divided into two camps: a liberal/FDR-influenced wing led by Ralph Yarborough, Sam Rayburn, and Wright Patman, and a Dixiecrat wing, grouped around former Democratic Texas Governor Alan Shivers and John Connally, who ultimately ran for President as a Republican. These Dixiecrats would become the basis for a Republican takeover of the South, determined to undo the industrial and racial progress which had occurred in the South under FDR and the war mobilization.
When Bush moved to Houston in 1959, he began socializing with the likes of James A. Baker III, and the Houston oily-garchs, and became active with the Harris County Republican Party, of which he became chairman in 1963, helped both by Harriman money and the sudden dropping out of the race by his opponent. In September 1963, he announced another Senatorial bid. Bush won the Republican nomination, but lost the election to Yarborough. But Bush had an ace up his sleeve, with a lawsuit to force a redrawing of Congressional districts in Texas. The result was the creation of an entirely new district on the west side of Houston, an area which Bush had carried in the 1964 election. Faced with this gift of a friendly district with no incumbent, Bush left Zapata Offshore in 1966 to run for Congress. Not surprisingly, he won, and in January 1967, George Bush became a member of the House of Representatives. In Congress, Bush heavily pushed birth control and malthusian policies, while defending the oil depletion allowance. Dissatisfied with a seat in the House, however, Representative Bush decided to run for the Senate in 1970. In that race, he expected to face Yarborough, but Yarborough lost the Democratic nomination to Lloyd Bentsen, who beat Bush 53% to 47%.
After the defeat, Bush took a series of non-elective offices. In December 1970, Nixon appointed Bush to the post of U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Bush moved to New York City, and the Waldorf-Astoria. He was nominally working for Secretary of State William Rogers, but his real boss was National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger. In 1973, Nixon appointed Bush to head the Republican National Committee. When Nixon resigned in 1974, Bush angled for President Gerald Ford to appoint him Vice President, but the job went to Nelson Rockefeller, and Bush got the job as U.S. Liaison to the People’s Republic of China; since the United States did not have formal diplomatic relations with China at the time, Bush was not officially an ambassador, and thus did not require what would likely have been a difficult confirmation by the Senate. In late 1975, Ford shifted personnel around, in preparation for his own Presidential bid, and George Bush was appointed director of the CIA. After a contentious confirmation battle, Bush was confirmed by the Senate and sworn in as CIA Director on Jan. 30, 1976. It was a short-lived post, as Ford lost to Carter, and Bush returned to Texas when Carter took over in 1977.
Back in Houston, Bush was appointed to the board of First International Bank of Houston, its parent First International Bankshares (a.k.a., InterFirst) of Dallas, and InterFirst’s London-based First International Bankshares merchant bank.  Bush also joined a few corporate and educational boards, and became an adjunct professor at Rice University.
Bush’s main preoccupation was building a political machine that would carry him to the White House, and one of his key allies was James A. Baker III. Baker was the chairman of the Reagan-Bush campaign in 1980, while fellow Texan Robert Strauss headed the Carter-Mondale effort. Baker had headed the Ford campaign in 1976, and had been Ford’s Deputy Secretary of Commerce. Oilman Robert Mosbacher headed up Bush’s national finance operation.
Bush formally announced his Presidential candidacy on May 1, 1979, and one of his campaign themes was the Union of English-Speaking Peoples. “The British are the best friend America has in the world today…. Sure, I’m an Anglophile,” Bush said at the time. “We should all be. Britain has never done anything bad to the United States.”
`Post-Industrial’ Southern Strategy
The heart of the Southern Strategy was the oligarchy’s plan to shift the United States from the world’s most powerful industrial economy, into a post-industrial rentier-financier empire. The industrialized cities of the North would be allowed to decay, while the relatively small cities of the South would be built up as cheap-labor service centers. As the Industrial Belt turned into the Rust Belt, the New South ascended. Houston, spurred by the oil boom, became the fourth-largest city in the country, old Atlanta became the “New Atlanta,” and sleepy Charlotte became a major international financial center. Existing cities were transformed–Dallas, San Antonio, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa-St. Petersburg, Miami, to name a few–while Northern cities such as Baltimore, Cleveland, and Philadelphia went into decline.
Coincident with this Southern shift, was the ascension of finance over industry. U.S. industry had largely been in the hands of the financiers since the days of J.P. Morgan’s creation of the industrial trusts, and that control was rapidly consolidated during the 1980s. Orchestrated by Bush’s masters, the speculators took over. The corporate raiders, financed by the dirty-money junk bond networks, bought up significant chunks of corporate America, and terrified the rest. The raiders’ targets, and those who feared they might become targets, turned to Wall Street’s investment banks and law firms for “protection.” As such, the leveraged buy-out/junk bond operation functioned as a giant protection racket, destroying some as a way of collecting tribute from the rest. At the same time, dirty money poured into the real estate market, notably through the giant Canadian developers Olympia & York and Cadillac Fairview. These firms built the skyscrapers which were then filled up with service workers–bankers, lawyers, accountants, clerks, and other white-collar types. Having the tallest office building became something of a fetish for the business leaders, spurring ever larger towers, which in turn were filled with ever larger numbers of white-collar workers.
The pouring of hot money into the real estate markets caused real estate prices to rise. The “wealth” created by these rising values provided more money to pump into the bubble. The rising stock market served a similar function. The cities were transformed into service centers ringed by suburbia, leaving the inner cities full of the poor and minorities, ripe for Strategic Bombing Survey decimation through drug distribution and “Negro removal.”
In the office buildings and the suburbs, the ordinary citizen was also being hooked on speculation. One of the effects of Fed Chairman Paul Volcker’s deadly interest-rate hikes in 1979-80, was that ordinary savings accounts suddenly started paying high rates of interest, giving the ordinary citizen a taste of the action. As more and more of the “little people” discovered the joys of usury, the modern “my money” era was born. That process escalated with the rise in residential real estate prices–homes were transformed from residences to “investments,” with rising equity values adding significantly to the pools of “my money.” The ordinary citizen also began making money from the rising stock market. Over time, a significant portion of the population became addicted to usury and speculation, considering it their right to make money from the manipulation of money. The speculator went from being the enemy to being the role model; the suckers now identified with the casino. The old-style productive industry became the realm of “losers,” replaced by the hot new “industries” of finance and information. Make derivatives, not steel!
While this transformation was made possible by the policy changes in Washington and in the states, the mechanism for the change was specific networks within the corporate world.
The junk-bond market of the 1980s, for example, was a joint operation of the Morgan/Rothschild Drexel Burnham Lambert investment bank, and the money laundries of Dope, Inc. Today, the junk bond market is bigger than ever, with more junk bonds issued in 1998 alone, than in all of the 1980s combined. The leveraged buy-out (LBO) wave was led by Kohlberg Kravis & Roberts, which was closely linked to the Harriman/Bush machine, and continues with such new Bush-connected players as Hicks Muse Tate & Furst, the Carlyle Group, the Bass Brothers, Richard Rainwater, and Sam Wylie’s Maverick Capital hedge fund. The LBO market declined significantly during the 1990s, as highly inflated stock prices became the currency of choice for takeovers, but is now making a comeback as a vehicle for taking key assets private in preparation for a crash.
The Texas networks have spawned wave after wave of deregulation. The deregulation of the airline industry began in Texas with Frank Lorenzo and Texas Air, which became Texas International, and ultimately took over Continental and Eastern, while the Bush League’s Albert Checchi took over Northwest Airlines. Texas is also the center of energy deregulation, home to Enron and a host of smaller competitors, such as James A. Baker III’s Reliant Energy (the parent of Houston Lighting & Power) and Dynegy; while many other players have Houston links, notably North Carolina’s Duke Energy and the Schlumberger-linked CMS and American Electric Power. Enron has also moved into the private water market in England and the United States, hoping to get a piece of the income streams from water and sewage.
The effect of all this deregulation and speculation has been the decimation of the physical economy of the United States. Over the last three decades, the productive capacity of the U.S. economy has been cut in half, measured in terms of market baskets of goods on a per-capita, per-household, and per-square-kilometer basis. At the same time, the monetary claims on that declining production have risen hyperbolically. The process defined by rapidly rising claims on a steadily declining production is clearly unsustainable–at some point, it must break down; the question is not if, but when, that will occur.
It is widely understood among the governments, political elites, and by the financial oligarchy, that the present financial system is doomed. While there is a desperate attempt to postpone the inevitable as long as possible, the serious thought is being put into preparing a new system to be implemented when this one goes. From the oligarchic perspective, the key to retaining control in a post-crash environment is twofold:
1) smash the power of sovereign nations through balkanization and globalization, so that they cannot protect their citizens from looting; and
2) grab control of as much of the world’s supplies of essential raw materials, strategic minerals, food supplies, energy supplies, and similar assets as possible. If they can do those two things, the oligarchs believe, they can run the post-crash world.
This process is far advanced, both within the United States and internationally. Take electricity, for example: U.S. firms such as Enron have been buying up power plants all over the world. One little-known firm, AES Corp., is poised to become the largest generator of electricity in Ibero-America, once its various acquisitions are completed. If you and a cartel of “competitors” can control the electricity supply of a continent, you have tremendous power to decide who survives and who dies, while grabbing as much of the electricity income stream as the market will bear.
Apply the same process to agriculture, where consolidation among the major food companies is proceeding at a breathtaking pace. Apply it to the telecommunications companies, which provide essential communications services; apply it to the production of strategic minerals and metals that are essential to modern industrial production. What you are left with, in effect, is a return to the days of the empires, when imperial trading companies controlled entire continents, and those who were not involved in making the companies rich, were considered expendable.
1. Halliburton, which acquired the Harrimans’ Dresser Industries, has surpassed Schlumberger as the largest oilfield services company. Among Halliburton’s subsidiaries is Brown & Root, the Houston construction firm which does sensitive work worldwide for the Pentagon and the State Department. Halliburton was also the first U.S. oil company to work the Chinese mainland and, beginning in 1986, was selected by the People’s Republic of China to perform offshore field work. In the 1980s, the Halliburton board included James Glanville of Lazard, Lord Polwarth of the Royal Bank of Scotland, William Simon of Wesray and Kissinger Associates, and the King Ranch’s Anne Armstrong. The “Torbitt” report identified Halliburton and Brown & Root as being among the principal financiers of Permindex, the financial front suspected of involvement in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Halliburton head Richard Cheney, a former Secretary of Defense, left the firm to become George W. Bush’s Vice President.
2. The Schlumberger family was part of a Swiss-based intelligence network operating in partnership with the British Secret Intelligence Service, to defeat the American Revolution. Among the agents run by this network were Aaron Burr, the man who killed Alexander Hamilton and who was tried for treason, Jefferson’s Treasury Secretary Albert Gallatin, and the most notorious of all American traitors, Benedict Arnold. A key role was played by members of the Prevost family, British military commanders from a Swiss oligarchic family which was intermarried with the Mallet family of the de Neuflize, Schlumberger Mallet Bank, known today as the Schlumberger interests. For further details, see Anton Chaitkin, Treason in America (Washington, D.C.: Executive Intelligence Review, 1998).
3. Lazard Freres is an international investment bank, operating out of Paris.
4. The firm today known as Baker & Botts was formed in 1866 by Judge Peter Gray and Walter Browne Botts, and became Baker & Botts when Captain James A. Baker joined in the 1870s. It had a distinct Confederate and Masonic heritage. Judge Gray had been the Assistant Treasurer of the Confederate States of America, where, under the command of Confederate Secretary of State Robert Toombs, he had financed the operations of Gen. Albert Pike among the Indian tribes in the Southwest. After the war, Pike and Toombs reestablished the Southern Jurisdiction of the Scottish Rite, and Pike deputy Philip C. Tucker set up a Scottish Rite lodge in Houston in 1867, with Walter Browne Botts and Benjamin Botts as leaders. Captain Baker would later play a key role in pushing eugenics–the precursor of Nazi race science–for the Harrimans, through Rice University, which he helped found and chaired for 40 years. In 1912, Baker brought in the head of the British Eugenics Society, Julian Huxley, to help the school set up its biology department.
5. Anne Legendre Armstrong, the daughter of aristocratic New Orleans coffee merchant Armant Legendre, became friends with Helenita Kleberg at the exclusive Foxcroft School and Vassar College. She married Tobin Armstrong, whose brother John was married to Helenita’s sister Henrietta Kleberg, and was second in command at the King Ranch. The Armstrongs trace their heritage to Texas Ranger John Armstrong, an enforcer for the King Ranch in its early days. Their much smaller Armstrong Ranch is, politically, an adjunct to the King Ranch. At PFIAB, Armstrong was involved in operations against Lyndon LaRouche and his associates, and helped bring Henry Kissinger into the Reagan administration in 1983. She chaired the advisory committee of the influential Georgetown Center for Strategic and International Studies, and was co-chair of the Republican National Committee in 1971-73.
6. Belton Kleberg “B.K.” Johnson started his own ranch, and joined the boards of AT&T, Campbell Soup, Tenneco, U.S. Trust and First City Bancorp., among others. His half-brother Robert Richard “Bobby” Shelton bought a ranch in Kerrville, Texas; Bobby Shelton also served a stint as head of the Texas Department of Public Safety, the state police agency which included the famous Texas Rangers, which at times seemed to have functioned as the private police of the King Ranch and its cohorts. These offspring, along with Anne Armstrong, were heavily interlocked with the 8F Crowd institutions in Houston. BK and Anne both sat on the board of First City Bancorp. of Houston, and Anne was also a director of American Express, General Motors, Boise Cascade, Braniff, Union Carbide, and Halliburton.
7. W.A. Harriman & Co., organized in 1919, was the private bank of the Harriman family. The chairman was W. Averell Harriman, who with his brother Roland “Bunny” Harriman controlled the bank, while founding members included George Herbert Walker, Sr. and Percy Rockefeller. Prescott Bush joined the firm in 1926. All but one were members of Skull & Bones; Walker was not, but his son, G.H. Walker, Jr., would be.
In 1931, W.A. Harriman & Co. merged with the Brown Brothers investment bank to form Brown Brothers Harriman. The Harriman brothers and Prescott Bush were senior partners at BBH, while Walker retired to his own G.H. Walker & Co. Brown Brothers was a spin-off of the British bank Brown, Shipley, whose best-known partner was Bank of England head Montagu Norman.
In October 1942, the U.S. government seized the Union Banking Corp. under the Trading With the Enemy Act for acting as an agent of Nazi Germany. UBC had been co-founded by Bert Walker, Sr., and its board included Roland Harriman and Prescott Bush. Several other Harriman-Bush-related companies were also seized, for the same reason.
8. In 1987, the ailing InterFirst merged with its Dallas crosstown rival RepublicBank to form First RepublicBank, which became the biggest bank in Texas and ultimately its biggest banking disaster. Within months, First RepublicBank was insolvent, but Federal regulators kept the bank open until after the Texas primary in Spring 1988, to avoid embarrassing Bush in his Presidential bid. A few weeks after Bush won the primary, the remnants of the bank were sold to Charlotte’s NCNB in a sweetheart deal. A Federal study later revealed that the government had pumped $3 billion into the bank to keep it afloat.
9. AES may be not be widely known, but it has very high-level sponsors. Co-founder Roger Sant is a director of Prince Philip’s World Wildlife Fund/World Wide Fund for Nature, and AES director Russell Train is the former chairman and president of the WWF. AES specializes in expanding into areas controlled by narco-terrorists.

Brainwashed into slavery | published circa 1940 By KENNETH GOFF Editorial Note Psychopolitics, a less known division of geopolitics, is the art of capturing the minds of a nation through brainwashing and ‘fake’ mental health – the subjecting of whole nations of people to the rule of the Kremlin by the capturing of their minds.

The Allies of Humanity is being presented to prepare people for a whole new reality that is largely hidden and unrecognized in the world today. It provides a new perspective that empowers people to face the greatest challenge and opportunity that we, as a race, have ever encountered.
The Allies Briefings contain a number of critical if not alarming statements about the growing extraterrestrial intervention and integration into the human race and about the extraterrestrial activities and hidden agenda.
The purpose of the Allies Briefings is not to provide hard evidence about the reality of the ET visitation to our world, which is already well documented in many other fine books and research journals on the subject. The purpose of the Allies Briefings is to address the dramatic and far-reaching implications of this phenomenon, to challenge our human tendencies and assumptions regarding it and to alert the human family to the great threshold we now face.
The Briefings provide a glimpse into the reality of intelligent life in the Universe and what Contact will really mean. For many readers, what is revealed in the Allies of Humanity Briefings will be entirely new. For others, it will be a confirmation of things they have long felt and known.
Though these Briefings provide an urgent message, they are also about moving towards a higher consciousness called “Knowledge”,which includes a greater telepathic facility among people and between races. In light of this, the Allies Briefings were transmitted to the author, Marshall Vian Summers from a multi-racial, extraterrestrial group of individuals who refer to themselves as the “Allies of Humanity.”
They describe themselves as physical beings from other worlds who have gathered in our solar system near the Earth for the purpose of observing the communications and activities of those alien races who are here in our world interfering in human affairs. They emphasize that they themselves are not physically present in our world and are providing needed wisdom, not technology or interference.
The Allies Briefings were given to the author over a one-year period. They offer perspective and vision into a complex subject which, despite decades of mounting evidence, continues to baffle researchers. Yet this perspective is not romantic, speculative or idealistic in its approach to this subject. To the contrary, it is bluntly realistic and uncompromising to the point where it may be quite challenging, even to a reader who is well versed in this subject.
Therefore, to receive what these Briefings have to offer requires that you suspend, for a moment at least, many of the beliefs, assumptions and questions that you may have about extraterrestrial Contact and even about how these Briefings were received. The contents of these Briefings are like a message in a bottle sent here from beyond the world. Thus, we should not be so concerned about the bottle but about the message itself.
To truly understand this challenging message, we must confront and question many of the prevailing assumptions and tendencies regarding the possibility and the reality of Contact. These include:
- hopeful expectation;
- misinterpreting the evidence to affirm our beliefs;
- wanting and expecting salvation from the “visitors”;
- believing that ET technology will save us;
- feeling hopeless and submissive to what we assume is a superior force;
- demanding government disclosure but not ET disclosure;
- condemning human leaders and institutions while maintaining unquestioned acceptance of the “visitors”;
- assuming that because they have not attacked or invaded us, they must be here for our good;
- assuming that advanced technology equals advanced ethics and spirituality;
- believing that this phenomenon is a mystery when in fact it is a comprehensible event;
- believing that ETs in some way have claim to humanity and to this planet;
- and believing that humanity is irredeemable and cannot make it on its own.
The Allies Briefings challenge such assumptions and tendencies and explode many of the myths we currently have about who is visiting us and why they are here.
The Allies of Humanity Briefings give us a greater perspective and a deeper understanding of our destiny within a larger panorama of intelligent life in the Universe. In order to achieve this, the Allies do not speak to our analytical mind but to Knowledge, the deeper part of our being where the truth, however clouded, can be directly discerned and experienced.
The Allies of Humanity will raise many questions, which will require further exploration and contemplation. Its focus is not to provide names, dates and places but to provide a perspective on the ET presence in the world and on life in the Universe that we as human beings could not otherwise have.
While still living in isolation on the surface of our world, we cannot yet see and know what is happening regarding intelligent life beyond our borders. For this we need help, help of a very extraordinary kind. We may not recognize or accept such help at first. Yet it is here.
The Allies’ stated purpose is to alert us to the risks of emerging into a Greater Community of intelligent life and to assist us in successfully crossing this great threshold in such a way that human freedom, sovereignty and self-determination can be preserved.
The Allies are here to advise us of the need for humanity to establish our own “Rules of Engagement” during this unprecedented time. According to the Allies, if we are wise, prepared and united, we will then be able to take our destined place as a mature and free race in the Greater Community.
Over the course of time that this series of briefings occurred, the Allies repeated certain key ideas that they felt were vital to our understanding. We have maintained these reiterations in the Briefings in order to preserve the intention and integrity of their communication. Because of the urgent nature of the Allies’ message and because of the forces in the world that would oppose this message, there is a wisdom and a necessity to these repetitions.
Following the publication of the Allies of Humanity in 2001, the Allies provided a second set of Briefings to complete their vital message to humanity. The Allies of Humanity Book Two, published in 2005, presents startling new information on the interactions between races in our local Universe and on the nature, purpose and most hidden activities of those races who are interfering in human affairs.
The Allies initiated communication again in 2008, further describing the complex environment into which humanity is emerging. The third set of Briefings was published in 2012.
Thanks to those readers who felt the urgency of the Allies’ message and translated the Briefings into other languages, there is an expanding worldwide awareness of the reality of the Intervention.
We at The Society for the New Message consider that these three sets of Briefings contain one of the most important messages being communicated in the world today.
The Allies of Humanity is not just another book speculating about the UFO/ET phenomenon. It is a genuine transformational message aimed directly at the underlying purpose of the alien Intervention in order to raise the awareness that we will need to face the challenges and the opportunities that lie ahead.
In order to understand the visitors’ activities in the world today, we must present more information regarding their influence on world religious institutions and values and on the fundamental spiritual impulses which are common to your nature and which, in many ways, are common to intelligent life in many parts of the Greater Community.
We should begin by saying that the activities that the visitors are conducting in the world at this time have been carried on many times before in many different places with many different cultures in the Greater Community. Your visitors are not the originators of these activities but merely use them at their own discretion and have used them many times before.
It is important for you to understand that skills in influence and manipulation have been developed to a very high degree of functionality in the Greater Community. As races become more adept and more capable technologically, they exert more subtle and more pervasive kinds of influence upon one another. Human beings have only evolved thus far to compete with each other, so you do not yet have this adaptive advantage. This in itself is one of the reasons why we are presenting this material to you. You are entering a whole new set of circumstances that require the cultivation of your inherent abilities as well as the learning of new skills.
Though humanity represents a unique situation, emergence into the Greater Community has happened countless times before with other races. Therefore, what is being perpetrated upon you has been done before. It has been highly developed and is now being adapted to your life and to your situation with what we feel is relative ease.
The Pacification Program that is being implemented by the visitors is making this possible, in part. The desire for peaceful relations and the desire to avoid war and conflict are admirable but can be, and indeed are being, used against you. Even your most noble impulses can be used for other purposes. You have seen this in your own history, in your own nature and in your own societies. Peace can only be established upon a firm foundation of wisdom, cooperation and true ability.
Humanity has naturally been concerned with establishing peaceful relations amongst its own tribes and nations. Now, however, it has a greater set of problems and challenges. We view these as opportunities for your development, for it will only be the challenge of emerging into the Greater Community that will unite the world and give you the foundation for this unity to be genuine, strong and effective.
Therefore, we come not to criticize your religious institutions or your most fundamental impulses and values, but to illustrate how they are being used against you by those alien races who are intervening in your world. And, if it is within our power, we wish to encourage the right employment of your gifts and your accomplishments for the preservation of your world, your freedom and your integrity as a race within a Greater Community context.
The visitors are fundamentally practical in their approach. This is both a strength and a weakness. As we have observed them, both here and elsewhere, we see that it is difficult for them to deviate from their plans. They are not well adapted to change, nor can they deal with complexity very effectively. Therefore, they carry out their plan in an almost careless manner, for they feel that they are in the right and that they have the advantage. They do not believe that humanity will mount resistance against them—at least not resistance that will affect them greatly. And they feel that their secrets and their agenda are well preserved and are beyond human comprehension.
In this light, our activity in presenting this material to you makes us their enemies, certainly in their sight. In our sight, however, we are merely attempting to counter their influence and to give you the understanding that you need and the perspective that you must rely upon to preserve your freedom as a race and to deal with the realities of the Greater Community.
Due to the practical nature of their approach, they wish to accomplish their goals with the greatest efficiency possible. They wish to unite humanity but only in accordance with their own participation and activities in the world. To them, human unity is a practical concern. They do not value diversity in cultures; they certainly do not value it within their own cultures.
Therefore, they will attempt to eradicate it or minimize it, if possible, wherever they are exerting their influence. In our previous discourse, we talked about the visitors’ influence on new forms of spirituality—on new ideas and new expressions of human divinity and human nature that are in your world at this time. In our discussion now, we would like to focus on the traditional values and institutions that your visitors seek to influence and are influencing today.
Attempting to promote uniformity and conformity, the visitors will rely on those institutions and those values that they feel are the most stable and practical for their use. They are not interested in your ideas, and they are not interested in your values, except insofar as these things might further their agenda. Do not deceive yourself in thinking that they are drawn to your spirituality because they lack such things themselves.
This would be a foolish and perhaps fatal mistake. Do not think that they are enamored with your life and with those things that you find to be intriguing.
For only in rare cases will you be able to influence them in this way. All natural curiosity has been bred out of them and very little remains. There is, in fact, very little of what you would call “Spirit” or what we would call “Varne” or “The Way of Insight.” They are controlled and controlling and follow patterns of thinking and behavior that are firmly established and strictly reinforced. They might seem to empathize with your ideas, but it is only to gain your allegiance.
In traditional religious institutions in your world, they will seek to utilize those values and those fundamental beliefs that can serve in the future to bring you into allegiance to them. Let us give you some examples, born both of our own observations and of the insight that the Unseen Ones have given us over time.
Many in your world follow the Christian faith. We think this is admirable though it is certainly not the only approach to the fundamental questions of spiritual identity and purpose in life. The visitors will utilize the fundamental idea of allegiance to a single leader in order to generate allegiance to their cause. Within the context of this religion, the identification with Jesus the Christ will be greatly utilized. The hope and the promise of his return to the world offers your visitors a perfect opportunity, particularly at this turning point in the millennium.
It is our understanding that the true Jesus will not return to the world, for he is working in concert with the Unseen Ones and serves humanity and other races as well. The one who will come claiming his name will come from the Greater Community. He will be one who is born and bred for this purpose by the collectives that are in the world today. He will appear human and will have significant abilities compared to what you can accomplish at this moment.
He will seem completely altruistic. He will be able to perform acts that will engender either fear or great reverence. He will be able to project images of angels, demons or whatever his superiors wish to expose you to. He will seem to have spiritual powers. Yet he will come from the Greater Community, and he will be part of the collective. And he will engender allegiance to follow him. Eventually, for those who cannot follow him, he will encourage their alienation or their destruction.
The visitors do not care how many of your people are destroyed so long as they have a primary allegiance amongst the majority. Therefore, the visitors will focus on those fundamental ideas that give them this authority and influence.
A Second Coming, then, is being prepared by your visitors. The evidence of this, we understand, is already in the world. People do not realize the presence of the visitors or the nature of reality in the Greater Community, and so they will naturally accept their prior beliefs without question, feeling that the time has come for the great return of their Savior and their Teacher. But he who will come will not come from the heavenly host, he will not represent Knowledge or the Unseen Ones, and he will not represent the Creator or the Creator’s will. We have seen this plan in formulation in the world. We have also seen similar plans carried out in other worlds.
In other religious traditions, uniformity will be encouraged by the visitors—what you might call a fundamental kind of religion based upon the past, based upon allegiance to authority and based upon conformity to the institution. This serves the visitors. They are not interested in the ideology and values of your religious traditions, only in their usefulness. The more that people can think alike, act alike and respond in predictable ways, the more useful they are to the collectives.
This conformity is being promoted in many different traditions. The intent here is not to make them all the same but to have them be simple within themselves.
In one part of the world, one particular religious ideology will prevail; in a different part of the world, a different religious ideology will prevail. This is entirely useful to your visitors, for they do not care if there is more than one religion so long as there is order, conformity and allegiance. Having no religion of their own that you could possibly follow or identify with, they will use yours to engender their own values.
For they value only total allegiance to their cause and to the collectives and seek your total allegiance to participate with them in ways that they prescribe. They will assure you that this will create peace and redemption in the world and the return of whatever religious image or personage is considered of the greatest value here.
This is not to say that fundamental religion is governed by alien forces, for we understand that fundamental religion has been well established in your world. What we are saying here is that the impulses for this and the mechanisms for this will be supported by the visitors and used for their own purposes. Therefore, great care must be given by all who are true believers in their traditions to discern these influences and to counteract them if possible. Here it is not the average person in the world that the visitors seek to convince; it is the leadership.
The visitors firmly believe that if they do not intervene in a timely manner, humanity will destroy itself and the world. This is not based upon truth; it is only an assumption. Though humanity is at risk of self-annihilation, this is not necessarily your destiny.
But the collectives believe that this is so, and so they must act with haste and give their programs of persuasion great emphasis. Those who can be convinced will be valued as useful; those that cannot be convinced will be discarded and alienated. Should the visitors become strong enough to gain complete control of the world, those who cannot conform will simply be eliminated. Yet the visitors will not do the destruction. It will be wrought through the very individuals in the world who have fallen completely under their persuasion.
This is a terrible scenario, we understand, but there must be no confusion if you are to understand and receive what we are expressing in our messages to you. It is not the annihilation of humanity, it is the integration of humanity that the visitors seek to accomplish. They will interbreed with you for this purpose. They will attempt to redirect your religious impulses and institutions for this purpose. They will establish themselves in a clandestine manner in the world for this purpose. They will influence governments and government leaders for this purpose. They will influence military powers in the world for this purpose. The visitors are confident that they can be successful, for so far they see that humanity has not yet mounted enough resistance to counteract their measures or to offset their agenda.
To counteract this, you must learn a Greater Community Way of Knowledge. Any free race in the universe must learn The Way of Knowledge, however it may be defined within their own cultures. This is the source of individual freedom. This is what enables individuals and societies to have true integrity and to have the wisdom necessary to deal with the influences that counteract Knowledge, both within their worlds and within the Greater Community.
It is, therefore, necessary to learn new ways, for you are entering a new situation with new forces and new influences. Indeed, this is not some future prospect but an immediate challenge. Life in the universe does not wait upon your readiness. Events will happen whether you are prepared or not. Visitation has occurred without your agreement and without your permission. And your fundamental rights are being violated to a far greater degree than you yet realize.
Because of this, we have been sent not only to give our perspective and our encouragement but also to sound a calling, an alarm, to inspire an awareness and a commitment. We have said before that we cannot save your race through military intervention. That is not our role. And even if we attempted to do so and garnered the strength to carry out such an agenda, your world would be destroyed. We can only advise.
You will see in the future a ferocity of religious belief expressed in violent ways, carried out against people who disagree, against nations of less strength and used as a weapon of attack and destruction. The visitors would like nothing better than for your religious institutions to govern the nations. This you must resist.
The visitors would like nothing better than to have religious values shared by everyone, for this adds to their labor force and makes their task easier. In all of its manifestations, such influence fundamentally reduces down to acquiescence and submission—submission of will, submission of purpose, submission of one’s life and abilities.
Yet this will be heralded as a great achievement for humanity, a great advancement in society, a new unification for the human race, a new hope for peace and equanimity, a triumph of human spirit over human instincts.
Therefore, we come with our counsel and encourage you to refrain from making unwise decisions, from giving your life over to things that you do not understand and from acquiescing your discernment and your discretion for the sake of any promised reward. And we must encourage you not to betray Knowledge within yourself, the spiritual intelligence with which you were born and which now holds your only and greatest promise.
Perhaps in hearing this you will view the universe as a place devoid of Grace. Perhaps you will become cynical and afraid, thinking that avarice is universal. But this is not the case. What is needed now is for you to become strong, stronger than you are, stronger than you have been. Do not welcome communications with those intervening in your world until you have this strength. Do not open your minds and hearts to visitors from beyond the world, for they come here for their own purposes. Do not think that they will fulfill your religious prophesies or greatest ideals, for this is a delusion.
There are great spiritual forces in the Greater Community—individuals and even nations that have achieved very high states of accomplishment, far beyond what humanity has demonstrated thus far. But they do not come and take control of other worlds. They do not represent political and economic forces in the universe. They are not involved in commerce beyond fulfilling their own fundamental needs. They rarely travel, except in situations of emergency.
Emissaries are sent to help those who are emerging into the Greater Community, emissaries such as ourselves. And there are spiritual emissaries as well—the power of the Unseen Ones, who can speak to those who are ready to receive and who show good heart and good promise. This is how God works in the universe.
You are entering a difficult new environment. Your world is very valuable to others. You will need to protect it. You will need to preserve your resources so that you do not require or depend upon trade with other nations for the fundamental necessities of your life. If you do not preserve your resources, you will have to relinquish much of your freedom and self-sufficiency.
Your spirituality must be sound. It must be based upon real experience, for values and beliefs, rituals and traditions can be used and are being used by your visitors for their own purpose.
Here you can begin to see that your visitors are very vulnerable in certain areas. Let us explore this further. Individually, they have very little will and have difficulty dealing with complexities. They do not understand your spiritual nature. And they most certainly do not understand the impulses of Knowledge.
The stronger you are with Knowledge, the more inexplicable you become, the harder you are to control and the less useful you become to them and to their program of integration. Individually, the stronger you are with Knowledge, the greater challenge you become to them. The more individuals that become strong with Knowledge, the more difficult it is for the visitors to isolate them.
The visitors do not have physical strength. Their power is in the Mental Environment and in the use of their technologies. Their numbers are small compared to yours. They are wholly reliant upon your acquiescence, and they are overly confident that they can succeed. Based upon their experience so far, humanity has not offered significant resistance. Yet the stronger you are with Knowledge, the more you become a force that opposes intervention and manipulation and the more you become a force for freedom and integrity for your race.
Though perhaps not many will be able to hear our message, your response is important. Perhaps it is easy to disbelieve our presence and our reality and to react against our message, yet we speak in accordance with Knowledge. Therefore, what we are saying can be known within you, if you are free to know it.
We understand that we challenge many beliefs and conventions in our presentation. Even our appearance here will seem inexplicable and will be rejected by many. Yet our words and our message can resonate with you because we speak with Knowledge. The power of truth is the greatest power in the universe. It has the power to free. It has the power to enlighten. And it has the power to give strength and confidence to those who need it.
We are told that human conscience is highly valued though perhaps not always followed. It is this that we are speaking of when we talk about The Way of Knowledge. It is fundamental to all of your true spiritual impulses. It is contained in your religions already. It is not new to you. But it must be valued, or our efforts and the efforts of the Unseen Ones to prepare humanity for the Greater Community will not be successful. Too few will respond. And the truth will be a burden for them, for they will not be able to share it effectively.
Therefore, we come not to criticize your religious institutions or conventions, but only to illustrate how they can be used against you. We are not here to replace them or to deny them, but to show how true integrity must pervade these institutions and conventions in order for them to serve you in a genuine way.
In the Greater Community, spirituality is embodied in what we call Knowledge, Knowledge meaning the intelligence of Spirit and the movement of Spirit within you. This empowers you to know rather than only believe. This gives you immunity from persuasion and manipulation, for Knowledge cannot be manipulated by any worldly power or force. This gives life to your religions and hope for your destiny.
We hold true to these ideas, for they are fundamental. They are lacking in the collectives, however, and should you encounter the collectives, or even their presence, and have the power to maintain your own mind, you will see this for yourself.
We are told that there are many people in the world who wish to give themselves over, to give themselves away to a greater power in life. This is not unique to the world of humanity, but in the Greater Community such an approach leads to enslavement. We understand that in your own world, before the visitors were here in such numbers, such an approach often led to enslavement. But in the Greater Community, you are more vulnerable and must be wiser, more careful and more self-sufficient. Recklessness here brings with it a heavy price and great misfortune.
If you can respond to Knowledge and learn a Greater Community Way of Knowledge, you will be able to see these things for yourself. Then you will confirm our words rather than only believe them or deny them. The Creator is making this possible, for the Creator wills that humanity prepare for its future. That is why we have come. That is why we are watching and now have the opportunity to report what we see.
The religious traditions of the world speak well for you in their essential teachings. We have had the opportunity to learn about them from the Unseen Ones. But they also represent a potential weakness.
If humanity were more vigilant and understood the realities of life in the Greater Community and the meaning of premature visitation, your risks would not be so great as they are today. There is hope and expectation that such visitation will bring great rewards and will be a fulfillment for you. Yet you have not been able to learn of the reality of the Greater Community or of the powerful forces that are interacting with your world. Your lack of understanding and premature trust in the visitors do not serve you.
It is for this reason that the Wise throughout the Greater Community remain hidden. They do not seek commerce in the Greater Community. They do not seek to be part of guilds or trading cooperatives. They do not seek diplomacy with many worlds. Their network of allegiance is more mysterious, more spiritual in nature. They understand the risks and the difficulties of exposure to the realities of life in the physical universe. They maintain their insulation, and they remain vigilant at their borders. They only seek to extend their wisdom through means that are less physical in nature.
In your own world, perhaps, you can see this expressed in those who are the wisest, the most gifted, who do not seek personal advantage through commercial avenues and who are not given to conquest and manipulation. Your own world tells you so much. Your own history tells you so much and illustrates, though on a smaller scale, everything that we are presenting to you here.
Thus, it is our intention not only to warn you of the gravity of your situation but to provide you, if we can, a greater perception and understanding of life, which you will need. And we trust that there will be enough who can hear these words and respond to the greatness of Knowledge. We hope there will be those who can recognize that our messages are not here to evoke fear and panic but to engender responsibility and a commitment to the preservation of freedom and good within your world.
If humanity should fail in opposing the Intervention, we can paint a picture of what this would mean. We have seen it elsewhere, for each one of us came very close, within our own worlds.
Being part of a collective, the planet Earth will be mined for its resources, its people will be corralled to work and its rebels and heretics will be either alienated or destroyed. The world will be preserved for its agriculture and its mining interests. Human societies will exist, but only in subordination to powers from beyond your world. And should the world exhaust its usefulness, should its resources be completely taken, then you will be left, bereft. The supportive life upon your world will have been taken from you; the very means of survival will have been stolen. This has happened before in many other places.
In the case of this world, the collectives may choose to preserve the world for ongoing use as a strategic post and as a biological storehouse. Yet the human population would suffer terribly under such oppressive rule. The population of humanity would be reduced. The management of humanity would be given to those who are bred to lead the human race within a new order. Human freedom as you know it would no longer exist, and you would suffer under the weight of foreign rule, a rule that would be harsh and exacting.
There are many collectives in the Greater Community. Some of them are large; some of them are small. Some of them are more ethical in their tactics; many are not. To the extent that they compete with one another for opportunities, such as the rule of your world, dangerous activities can be perpetrated. We must give this illustration so that you will have no doubt as to what we are saying. The choices before you are very limited, but very fundamental.
Therefore, understand that from your visitors’ perspective, you are all tribes that need to be managed and controlled in order to serve the visitors’ interests. For this, your religions and a certain degree of your social reality will be preserved. But you will lose a great deal. And much will be lost before you realize what has been taken from you. Therefore, we can only advocate a vigilance, a responsibility and a commitment to learn—to learn about life in the Greater Community, to learn how to preserve your own culture and your own reality within a greater environment and to learn how to see who is here to serve you and distinguish them from those who are not.
This greater discernment is so needed in the world, even for the resolution of your own difficulties. But regarding your survival and well-being in the Greater Community, it is absolutely fundamental.
Therefore, we encourage you to take heart. We have more to share with you.
The Human Family is facing the greatest threshold in its long history – its emergence into a Greater Community of intelligent life in the universe. This emergence will change human perception, belief and how we live here on Earth. Yet humanity is unprepared. For the first time, the preparation for crossing the great threshold into the Greater Community is being made available through the writings of MV Summers. This vast body of Teachings in its entirety is unlike anything in the world today and represents a New Message for Humanity.
Education and Action are essential to bring this new message and awareness to Humanity.
