"Daddy Warbucks" of Drugs and Death - CFR member George Soros
In "Theirs Was the Kingdom: Lila and DeWitt Wallace and the Story of the
Reader’s Digest". [New York: W.W. Norton, 1993. 701 pages], author
John Heidenry writes how the Reader’s Digest grew to become the world’s most
successful publisher of magazines, and largest global marketer of books. At
one time the Digest had a circulation of 18 million. Heidenry also writes
how the Reader’s Digest through its Washington Bureau, was a major
distributor of Cold War propaganda with strong connections to the US
What Heidenry, fails to point out are the strong connections the
Digest has to the Council on Foreign Relations. Reader’s Digest Chairman,
and CEO George V. Grune is a Council on Foreign Relations member .
In April 1998 Reader’s Digest printed an article by Senior Editor
Levine, titled "HIGH ON A LIE." The article is about the "medical marijuana"
movement and explains how the movement is a hoax and a fraud. Levine fails
to point out the Council on Foreign Relations links to sponsorship of the
In November of 1996 the California voters passed Proposition 215 - the
Compassionate Use Act. It allows the marijuana to be grown and used for "any
illness for which marijuana provides relief." The Campaign for the
"Compassionate Use Act" to legalize medical marijuana would not have been
successful without the funding of billionaires George Soros, Peter Lewis and
John Sperling. Levine doesn’t identify George Soros as a
Council on Foreign
The Joint Chiefs of Staff DoD Publication 1 (1987) Glossary of Department of
Defense Military Associated Terms defines:
"COVERT OPERATIONS: (DoD, Interpol, Inter-American Defense Board) Operations
which are so planned and executed as to conceal the identity of or permit
plausible denial by the sponsor. They differ from clandestine operations in
that emphasis is placed on concealment of identity of sponsor rather than on
concealment of the operation."
The Council on Foreign Relations has used covert operations to conceal their
identity while methodically taking control of the Department of State,
Central Intelligence Agency, and the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial
branches of the Government.
The Council on Foreign Relations is part of an international group of
co-conspirators, that have been carrying out successful covert operations
since the mid-1800’s. If the Council and its branch organizations weren’t so
successful at divorcing themselves from their operations they would have
been stopped long ago. The American Branch is the Council on Foreign
Relations. The British Branch is the Royal Institute of International
Affairs. They have a web site at

The Council on Foreign Relations is one of the organizations. In 1942
Council on Foreign Relations member James Warburg was appointed deputy
director of the overseas branch of the Office of War Information in London
with responsibility for propaganda aimed at the Axis powers and occupied
European Nations. In UNWRITTEN TREATY, Warburg writes,
" Psychological warfare aims at the undermining of a people’s confidence in
its cause, its strength, its leaders and itself, and at the destruction of
its determination to fight for its cause or even for its life.
This combination of confidence and determination we call morale. When a
nation’s morale is destroyed, it commits suicide - as did Austria - or else
it submits to conquest after feeble and disorganized resistance - as did
France. In any case, it reaches a state of mind in which resistance seems
hopeless and surrender less of an evil than endurance of armed conflict...
Psychological warfare against an enemy nation seeks to paralyze the will of
that nation by spreading confusion, by alternating excessive hope and
excessive fear, by exploiting every cleavage and adding fuel to every
The Council on Foreign Relations propaganda machine manipulates American
Citizens to accept the particular climate of opinion the Council on Foreign
Relations seeks to achieve in the world. Council on Foreign Relations
members working in an ad hoc committee called the "Special Group" and
through a vast intragovernmental undercover infrastructure called the
"Secret Team" formulate this opinion in the US.
The dominant Council on Foreign Relations members belong to an inner circle
that plan and co-ordinate the psycho-political operations used to manipulate
the American public. These are the Council on Foreign Relations members in
an ad-hoc governmental committee called the "Special Group."
The rest of the Council on Foreign Relations members, past and present,
inside and outside of the government, are part of a "Secret Team" that play
key parts in carrying out the psycho-political operations. The "Secret Team"
is set up as circles within circles. Not every Council member knows exactly
what psycho-political operations are being planed or what their exact role
in the operation is. This allows them to deny responsibility and deny
Council sponsorship of the operation.
Secret Team circles include Council on Foreign Relations members in top
the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of
who control television, radio, and newspaper corporations

who run the largest and most prestigious
who direct the largest private foundations
who direct the
largest public corporations

who hold top commands in the military
Council on Foreign Relations members are focusing
operations (psyops) at the American public. The psycho-political operations
are designed to undermine our confidence, and destroy our determination to
fight. The psycho-political operations target the family, loyalty to our
nation, and our faiths. Two of the psycho-political operations are abortion,
and legalization of drugs. Council on Foreign Relations member
is helping to finance both operations. Council on Foreign Relations members
in the "Special Group" and on the "Secret Team" help plan and co-ordinate
The abortion and drug legalization psyops are covert operations. The
identity of the Council on Foreign Relations sponsorship is kept secret. A
covert operation makes the target aware something is wrong while making them
helpless to do anything about it because they don’t know who is attacking
them. A covert operation allows the sponsor to place members of its
organization on both sides of an issue. Former Heath, Education and Welfare
Secretary Council on Foreign Relations member Joseph A. Califano, Jr., calls
Council on Foreign Relations member George Soros the "Daddy Warbucks of drug
legalization." However, Califano never links the Council on Foreign
Relations to sponsorship of drug legalization or abortion, thus
participating in concealing the identity of CFR sponsorship and
participation in the covert operation.
Council on Foreign Relations member George Soros is one of the world’s
richest men (estimated worth: $10 billion) and probably the biggest
international investor of all time. This guy lost $600 million in one day
speculating on which way the yen would jump and never flinched.
Soros doesn’t flinch because he and his fellow Council on Foreign Relations
members can always steal more money. In 1995, Senator Alfonse D’Amato, as
head of the Senate Banking Committee, issued a report about the Clinton
Administration’s $20 billion loan to Mexico. The reason given for the loan
was to prop up a staggering Mexico because any default on loans would end
foreign investment in all developing countries.
The real reason was to rescue American and Mexican investors who had thrown
their money into the craps game of high-interest Mexican Government bonds.
For a year before the loan was ordered, on January 31, 1995, top Treasury
officials and President Clinton were telling us how great things were going
economically in Mexico. It was a cover-up to prevent Congressional defeat of
the North American Free Trade Agreement, to bolster the Mexican and US
administrations in upcoming elections in both countries, and to protect the
An article from Newsday , "Peso Hits Record Low As Bailout Is Debated" (
Karen Rothmyer - 1/31/,95) identifies some of the Council on Foreign
Relations members involved in the cover-up. They were,
George Bush, Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford [who] signed a declaration of
support for the [bailout] plan. Also endorsing the plan was George Soros,
probably the world’s most influential international investor."
George Soros is also a member of the
The Carlyle Group is an
investor team led by Ronald Reagan’s Defense Secretary Frank C. Carlucci III
and funded in part by the Mellon family. Carlucci is a sawed off runt with a
Napoleon complex and a poor self image. The furniture in Carlucci’s office
is miniaturized so he feels bigger. When Carlucci is photographed with other
men, they sit down, and he stands up, to give the perception he is bigger.
As president and CEO of Sears World Trade center, Carlucci left the company
with a $60 million dollar loss, and went work for government.
The managing director of the
Carlyle Group is George Bush’s White House
Office of Management and Budget Director Richard Darman. A partner in the
group is George Bush’s Secretary of State James A. Baker III. Another member
of the Carlyle group is Richard Nixon’s White House Office of Management and
Budget Deputy Director Frederic Malek. George Bush Sr.’s son George Bush
Jr., former CIA Director Robert Gates and current
SEC Chairman Arthur Levitt
are advisors to, investors in or board members of Carlyle’s companies.
Included in Carlyle’s press kit are Vernon Jordan and Bob Strauss.
Carlucci, Darman, Gates, Jordan, Malek and
Strauss are Council on Foreign
Relations members. The
Carlyle Group has exploited their governmental
connections and ties to turn itself into one of the twenty-five largest
defense contractors in the world. All the members of the Carlyle group have
been part of dubious investment activities. Many have been exposed in
scandals that involve the Central Intelligence Agency.
Soros uses some of the money he steals to fund a group of international
foundations. Foundations are used by The Council on Foreign Relations to
funnel corporate and personal wealth into the policy-making process.
Foundations are tax-free. Contributions to foundations are deductible from
federal corporate and individual income taxes. The Foundations themselves
are not subject to federal income taxation. Foundations control hundreds of
Billions of dollars of money that would normally go to pay federal and
individual income taxes. In 1970 there were 7000 foundations that controlled
$20 Billion in assets. Nearly 40% of these foundation assets were controlled
by the top 12 foundations:
The top twelve foundations were controlled
by the Council on Foreign Relations.
Foundations can he created by corporations or individuals. These
corporations or individuals can name themselves and their friends as
directors or trustees of the foundations they create. Large blocks of
corporate stock or large amounts of personal wealth can be donated as
tax-exempt contributions to the foundations. The foundations can receive
interest, dividends, profit shares, and capital gains from these assets
without paying any taxes on them. The directors or trustees, of course, are
not allowed to use foundation income or assets for their personal expenses,
as they would their own taxable income, But otherwise they have great
latitude in directing the use of foundation monies-to underwrite research,
investigate social problems, create or assist universities, write research,
investigate social problems, establish "think tanks," endow museums, etc. 
At the Soros foundation Web Site (http://www.soros.org/) we learn that the:
"National foundations are autonomous institutions established by
in particular countries to initiate and support projects. National
foundations are located primarily in the previously communist countries of
Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, but also in
Guatemala, Haiti, Mongolia, and South Africa. Each national foundation has a
board of directors and staff who set the priorities for the foundation’s
work. The national foundations are, in most cases, autonomous
nongovernmental organizations registered in their own countries and staffed
by local professionals. The foundations develop distinct programs in support
of the mission and strategic goals established by their directors and staff.
These programs vary greatly in nature and urgency from country to country.
The local nature of the foundations represented here is one of the
distinctive features of Mr. Soros’ approach to philanthropy."
One of the Foundations, the
Open Society Institute, is issuing grants to
promote abortion. Among the programs those that use abortion as a method for

The Council on Foreign Relations controls the US Banking industry, and has
controlled the Federal Reserve since it’s inception. Council on Foreign
Relations member Robert Edward Rubin was sworn in as the 70th Secretary of
the Treasury on January 10, 1995. On May 18, 1998 Reuter’s reported

High on a Lie
Funded by billionaires, the "medical marijuana" movement is blowing smoke in
BY DANIEL LEVINE, Senior Editor,
READER’s DIGEST, April 1998
ONE SATURDAY last September, 50,000 people, most of them teenagers, crowded
into the Boston Common for the eighth annual Freedom Rally. Its organizers
billed it as the largest marijuana-legalization event on the East Coast.
Strolling through the crowd, holding a joint, was a 17-year-old high- school
senior who said his name was Bill. "If they allow sick people to use it," he
said, "it can’t be that damaging."
Sharing a marijuana pipe with two friends, a 15-year-old named
agreed. "Pot is harmless," she said. "It should be legalized because there
are so many medical benefits. It helps you with a lot of things. It’s the
An increasing number of young Americans agree. They have gotten this idea
from a well-funded movement to legalize the "compassionate" use of
marijuana. While every legitimate drug requires rigorous
testing by the FDA before being approved, marijuana advocates are opting for
medicine by popular vote. This year signatures are being gathered for
medical-marijuana initiatives in a half-dozen states and the District of
Marijuana’s main active ingredient, THC, is effective in relieving nausea
and inducing weight gain in cancer and AIDS patients. That is why the FDA
has approved Marinol, a synthetic pill form of THC. But marijuana in its
smoked form has never been shown in controlled scientific studies to be safe
or effective. In fact, marijuana smoke contains over 2000 chemicals many of
which produce psychoactive reactions, cause lung damage and - in cancer and
AIDS patients-increase the risk of pneumonia and weaken the immune system.
Inhaling the smoke also disrupts short-term memory and leads to changes in
the brain similar to those caused by heroin, cocaine and other highly
"There is no conclusive scientific evidence that marijuana is superior to
currently available medicines," says Dr. Eric Voth, chairman of the
International Drug Strategy Institute in Omaha. "Medical marijuana is a scam
that takes advantage of sick and dying patients."
Says Gen. Barry R. McCaffrey, (Ret.), director of the Office of National
Drug Control Policy,
"Medical marijuana is a stalking-horse for
legalization. This is not about compassion. This is about legalizing
"Daddy Warbucks" of Drugs
The legalization of marijuana and other drugs has been debated for more than
30 years, with a vast majority of Americans standing in opposition.
Legalization supporters have used the argument that drugs are necessary for
medical reasons. But now, for the first time, they have significant
In the last six years a handful of Americas wealthiest people have
contributed $20 million to groups that promote medical marijuana or other
radical drug-policy reforms. Billionaire financier George Soros is the
biggest giver, donating more than $16 million. Others include Peter Lewis,
CEO of Cleveland-based Progressive Corp., the nation’s sixth-largest auto
insurer, and John Sperling, president of the Apollo Group, a holding company
that controls for-profit universities and job-training centers.
In an interview with
Reader’s Digest, the 76-year-old Sperling said he
believes doctors should be allowed to prescribe all drugs, including heroin
and LSD. Lewis declined to be interviewed.
A spokesman for Soros said he does not support drug legalization.
Nonetheless, Soros has donated millions since 1992 to groups led by people
advocating it. Former Heath, Education and Welfare Secretary Joseph A. Califano, Jr., calls him the "Daddy Warbucks of drug legalization."
Soros created a drug-policy institute called The Lindesmith Center and has
funded it with $4 million. Its director, Ethan Nadelmann, Sores’s point man
on drug policy, has said he wants to "legalize the personal possession of
drugs by adult Americans."
Soros has also given $6.4 million to the
Drug Policy Foundation (DPF) a
leading advocate for medical marijuana. Its stated mission is "publicizing
alternatives to current drug strategies." Its founder, attorney and college
professor Arnold Trebach, calls himself a "flat-out legalizer" who advocates
the repeal of current drug laws.
Richard J. Dennis, a 49-year-old Chicago commodities trader and member of
DPF’s board of directors, supports both medical marijuana and legalization
in general. In fact, says Dennis,
"I’d like to see legalization for adults
for all drugs, including heroin."
On DPF advisory board is Harvard Medical School psychiatrist
Lester Grinspoon, a leading advocate of medical marijuana for over 25 years. He
compares marijuana’s potential benefit to that of penicillin, predicting,
"It will be the wonder drug of the new millennium."
Lewis and Spelling gained their biggest victory in November 1996 when
California voters passed Proposition 215, also known as the
Use Act. It allows pot to be grown and smoked for "any illness for which
marijuana provides relief." There are no age restrictions. "Illness" is
loosely defined and can include headaches, chronic pain and arthritis. A
doctor’s oral recommendation is all that is required.
The principal author of the California initiative was 52-year-old
Peron, a San Francisco "medical pot club" owner who’s been arrested 15 times
on marijuana charges. Peron says he worded the initiative vaguely because he
believes "all marijuana use is medical."
Peron’s Cannabis Cultivators’ Club is the state’s largest pot club, taking
in over $20,000 a day. One day last fall, Peron wandered the club greeting
patrons and handed one a bulging quarter-pound bag of marijuana. Standing in
line at Peron’s smoke-filled club to buy an eighth of an ounce of high-grade
Mexican marijuana was a 39-year-old named Anthony. Under California’s law,
Anthony is considered a "seriously ill patient" who can purchase and smoke
pot. He tokes up four or five times a day.
When asked about his ailment,
Anthony answered: "Officially, hernia
discomfort from overstrenuous intercourse. Actually, I can’t feel it." He
said the club admitted him without any medical referral. A self-described
"potaholic," Anthony has smoked dope since he was 16. "My problems," he
conceded, "are related to a general life-style kind of thing."
Peron’s club had operated for years, despite violating state and federal
drug laws. In August 1996, state drug agents raided it, seizing 86 pounds of
pot and $62,000. "The club was running a sophisticated illegal drug
distribution network," said a spokesman for California Attorney General
Dan Lungren. A grand jury indicted Peron, and he awaits trial on felony drug
charges. Meanwhile, Peron is running for governor of California. Peron’s
initiative never would have made it to the ballot without the help of Soros,
Lewis and Sperling.
California requires 433,269 valid petition signatures before a "citizen’s
initiative" can be placed on the ballot. As the deadline neared, Peron and
his unorganized group of volunteers had collected only 40,000.
That is when
Ethan Nadelmann of Soro’s Lindesmith Center stepped in. He
helped create Californians for Medical Rights, a sophisticated campaign
organization that pushed the medical-marijuana initiative. Soros and
poured $400,000 into the group, which paid professional signature gatherers
who, in 90 days, obtained more than 700,000 signatures.
Once the measure was on the ballot,
Soros, Lewis and Sperling contributed a
combined $450,000 for advertising. Commercials featured emotional appeals
for relief through the use of marijuana. The ads never mentioned that
Proposition 215 would allow marijuana to be smoked for any condition,
without age restriction and without a prescription.
One of the numerous medical- marijuana clubs that opened as a result of
Peron’s measure was the Dharma Producers Group in San Francisco, which
bragged that it offered "medical marijuana with a Tibetan touch." The club’s
"medical director," a pony-tailed 52-year-old named Lorenzo Pace, laughed
when he explained his medical- marijuana credentials: "I did preliminary
research all through the ’60s."
Californians for Medical Rights has since changed its name to Americans for
Medical Rights. Today it is leading a campaign to place medical-marijuana
initiatives on state ballots across the country.
While Californians were voting on medical marijuana, their neighbors in
Arizona were considering an even more radical initiative. The Drug Medicalization, Prevention and Control Act of 1996 proposed to legalize not
only marijuana but also more than 100 other drugs--including heroin, LSD and
PCP (angel dust) for medical use.
Arizona’s initiative was sold to voters as a way to get tough on violent
criminals. How? Open up jail space by paroling all first- and second-time
drug offenders. This ignored the fact that virtually all of the 1200 inmates
affected had plea-bargained down from much more serious charges or had prior
In Arizona, Sperling spearheaded the campaign. He,
Soros and Lewis
contributed a total of $1.2 million; the DPF gave $303,000. This accounted
for 99 percent of the initiative total funding. As in California, much of
this money paid for a massive media campaign. Opponents of the initiative,
caught unprepared, did not run a single advertisement.
The measure passed, but a post-election survey revealed that Arizona voters
had been badly misled. Seventy-four percent did not believe doctors should
be able to prescribe drugs such as heroin, PCP and LSD, as the proposition
allowed; 70 percent agreed the initiative would give children the impression
the drugs were also acceptable for recreational use. The state legislature
subsequently passed a statute that effectively overrode the initiative.
The organizers of Arizona’s initiative moved to place a similar measure on
the ballot in Washington State. Sperling, Lewis and Soros contributed a
total of more than $1.5 million.
Despite being outspent more than ten to one, opponents of the Washington
initiative were not about to be caught unprepared. They took every
opportunity to stress that the measure was not about compassion, but about
legalizing dangerous drugs. Last November voters rejected the measure.
The defeat in Washington has not sidetracked plans for similar medical
marijuana initiatives in other states. Battlegrounds include Hawaii,
Florida, Arkansas, Maine and Alaska. An Oregon initiative would not only
legalize use of many drugs but also permit the sale of marijuana in state
liquor stores. In Washington, D. C., Initiative 59 would allow up to four
caregivers, including "best friends," to cultivate pot for a "seriously ill"
person. Organizers are hoping that passage of these initiatives will spur
Congress to legalize medical marijuana under federal law.
Says Dr. Robert DuPont, a former director of the National Institute on Drug
"Never in the history of modern medicine has burning leaves been
considered medicine. Those in the medical-marijuana movement are putting on
white coats and expressing concerns about the sick. But people need to see
this for what it is: a fraud and a hoax."
