Chapter 7.2: Brookings and Carnegie Foundations


The Brookings Institution


Brookings Institution was incorporated in 1927 by:

The Brookings Institution was founded by Robert S. Brookings, born 1850, unmarried, a St. Louis merchant and head of the Cupples Co. which revolutionized the distribution of goods from railway stations.


In World War I, Brookings was Baruch's assistant at the War Industries Board, which had dictatorial powers over American industrialists, and Chairman of the Price Fixing Committee of WIB. An original trustee of Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Brookings set up the Brookings Graduate School of Economics, which merged with the Institute of Government Research and the Institute of Economics in 1927 to form the present Brookings Institution.


It is listed as "not a membership organization", whose goal is "to set national priorities", in short, to make government policy, which it does. It rode into power with Roosevelt's New Deal, hardly a surprising development, since its incorporator, Frederic A. Delano, was FDR's uncle.


The present chairman, Robert V. Roosa, was preceded in that office by C. Douglas Dillon. It has always been the forum of the world's most powerful financiers.

In 1984, Brookings Institution originated a new program for the government, written by a team of 10 economists headed by Alice Rivlin, former director Congressional Budget Office.


Rivlin proposed that the income tax be replaced or augmented by a consumption tax laid upon all consumption, bequests and gifts. In short, the traditionally leftwing Brookings Institution hopes to enact into law the illegal IRS technique of "composite net worth", laying an income tax on citizens by estimating what they spend or consume, a "cash flow" tax as inescapable as the Rockefeller-Ruml withholding tax. Their only goal is to grind the working man into hopeless poverty through ruthless extortion by government agents.


In 1978, corporations gave Brookings $95,000; in 1984, this figure had jumped to $1.6 million. Most of their $13 million budget continues to be paid by the major foundations, Ford, Rockefeller, Carnegie, Milbank Memorial Fund. The foundations work together, not only because of their close interlocking, but because they have a common program.


That program was published by Karl Marx in 1848 as "The Communist Manifesto":

The foundations never oppose or contradict a single plank of the Communist Manifesto. The program has given us "vocational training" instead of education, which is a different form of child labour.


Present directors of Brookings include:

The heavy representation of Morgan and Rockefeller directors on the board of Brookings explains the relentless drive of the "big rich" to increase taxes and government control of the average American citizen.


The Business section of the New York Times April 15, 1984, long in advance of the election, carried a headline story on the Business page that "Whoever Wins in November, There Will Still be a $100 Billion Increase for U.S. Taxpayers."





The Russell Sage Foundation


Another major U.S. foundation, the Russell Sage Foundation, was incorporated in 1907 by Daniel Coit Gilman and Cleveland H. Dodge.


A director of National City Bank, Dodge masterminded the Presidential campaign of Woodrow Wilson, after subsidizing his academic career at Princeton with $5000 a year from himself and Moses Pyne, grandson of the founder of National City Bank.


In 1980, the Russell Sage Foundation had assets of $52 million, and expenditures of $2 million. Sage was a Wall Street speculator who made a fortune in railroad stocks. Nicolson's biography of Dwight Morrow notes that:

"It has always been a tradition that the partners of J.P. Morgan should engage in all forms of public and charitable activity. Morrow was a trustee of Russell Sage Foundation, director Natl Bureau of Economic Research, N.Y. Commission of Re-Employment, and Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. He was a director of General Electric and Bankers Trust."

The present chairman of Russell Sage Foundation is Herma Hill Kaye, leading Women's Rights organizer, trustee of the Rosenberg Foundation; president is Marshall A. Robinson, also is director of Ford Foundation and director of Herbert Hoover's Belgian American Educational Foundation.


Directors of Russell Sage are:

The directors of the major foundations have been particularly active in wartime positions, even though they seem to have little experience in charitable endeavours. Beardsley Ruml was a trustee of Russell Sage Foundation from 1928-33.


For many years the most prominent figure on Sage's board was Frederic A. Delano, who was horn in Hong Kong, where his father, Captain Warren Delano, was engaged in the opium trade. An uncle of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Delano was an original member of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in 1914, and was later named by his nephew as Governor of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond.


He was an original incorporator of Brookings Institution, Carnegie Institution, and Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, director of the Smithsonian Museum, Commission for Relief in Belgium, and Belgian American Educational Foundation set up by Herbert Hoover in World War I, chmn Natl Planning Board 1934-43.


Delano's wife's sister married Ed Burling, who founded the Washington law firm of Covington & Burling, whose partners later included Dean Acheson and Donald Hiss, brother of Alger. Frederic A. Delano married Mathilda Peasley of Chicago; Edward Burling married her sister Louise. They were the daughters of a railroad tycoon, James C. Peasley of the Burlington Railroad, also president of the National State Bank. Judge J. Harry Covington and Edward Burling founded the law firm of Covington and Burling in Washington in 1919.


Covington, a Maryland congressman, had been appointed Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Washington, D.C., by Woodrow Wilson as a reward for voting for the passage of the Federal Reserve Act. In 1918, Wilson appointed Covington as United States Railroad Commissioner. Covington was a director of Kennecott Copper and Union Trust. Wilson had also appointed Edward Burling chief counsel of the U.S. Shipping Board.


He served in this post from 1917-1919, working closely with Herbert Hoover and Prentiss Gray, later of J. Henry Schroder Co. Delano's sister was Mrs. Price Collier of Tuxedo Park, N.Y.; his son-in-law was James L. Houghtaling, who was special attache at the American Embassy in Petrograd during the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 (he later wrote "Diary of the Russian Revolution"), Federal Emergency Administration 1933, Commissioner of Naturalization and Immigration 1937-90, War Finance, Dept of the Treasury 1944-46; chairman Fair Employment Board Civil Service Commission 1949-52 - his mother was a Peabody of Boston.


The first board of directors of Russell Sage Foundation consisted of Daniel Coit Gilman, Helen Gould, Margaret Sage and Dwight Morrow.





The Carnegie Foundations


Although the name of Andrew Carnegie looms large on the roster of American foundations, for many years the five Carnegie foundations have been mere appendages of the Rockefeller Foundation.


Carnegie sold his steel interests to J.P. Morgan and the Rothschilds for [?] billion, but was not permitted to walk away with the money. Like Cecil Rhodes, Rockefeller, and others, he was directed to put it into foundations which would carry out the program of the World Order.


The Carnegie Institution of Washington was incorporated in 1909 by:

Note that the original incorporators include two of the three incorporators of the Russell Trust, Gilman and White.


In 1921, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (CEIP) was incorporated by:

Thus we see that the major foundations were all organized by the same small group of people, bankers and lawyers who function as front men for the World Order.


James T. Shotwell ably represented the goals of the World Order for more than sixty years. Born in Canada in 1874, he joined the staff of Columbia University in 1900 as a professor of history. In 1916 he was invited by Col. House to set up a study group, the Inquiry, with Walter Lippmnann, to "study postwar political economic historical and legal developments," although we were not even in the war! This was the core of the American Commission to Negotiate Peace (ACNP) at Versailles which wrote the Peace Treaty.


In 1917, Shotwell became personal adviser to President Woodrow Wilson. He was appointed official historian of the ACNP, and actually wrote the social security clauses of the Versailles Treaty. He wrote a 150-volume history of World War I, published by Columbia. He had become a close friend of Herbert Hoover during the war, and advised him on setting up the Hoover Institution. Shotwell organized the International Labor Conference, and joined the Carnegie Endowment in 1924.


In 1941, Shotwell led a Committee which demanded the release of Communist Party leader Earl Browder.


Shotwell joined the State Dept. in 1940, serving until 1944. When Franklin D. Roosevelt asked him to join the State Dept. team of Alger Hiss, Henry Wallace and Sumner Welles to organize the United Nations, Shotwell was already Chairman of the Commission to Study the Organization of the Peace, which he had set up in 1939, before the war started, just as he had done in 1916! Shotwell was Honorary Chairman of the San Francisco Conference to Organize the United Nations with Alger Hiss. When Hiss was arrested, Shotwell succeeded him as President of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.


The trustees of CEIP in 1948 lists the ruling clique of America:

A key member, Philip C. Jessup had such a long record of association with Communist front groups that not a single Senator dared to vote for his confirmation as U.S. Representative to the U.N. in Oct. 1951.


President Truman stubbornly refused to withdraw his name, but sent him as an "alternate" delegate. Jessup had been assistant to Elihu Root at the Hague Court; he was Herbert Lehman's Asst. Sec. General of UNRRA, whose deputy, Laurence Duggan later fell out of the window. Jessup had represented the U.S. at the Bretton Woods Conference, and was Alger Hiss' assistant in Charge of Judicial Organization at the U.N. San Francisco Conference.


Jessup was Chairman of the Pacific Council of the Institute of Pacific Relations (IPR), a hotbed of Communist intrigue and espionage. IPR had financed the Soviet spy, Richard Sorge, when he set up his network in Japan. Laurence Rockefeller served as secretary at the IPR meetings. The McCarran Committee reported, "The IPR has been considered by the American Communist Party and by Soviet officials as an instrument of Communist policy, propaganda, and military intelligence."


In June, 1945, the FBI raided the offices of IPR's Amerasia Magazine, confiscated 1800 stolen confidential government documents, and arrested several Communist spies. The following year, the Rockefeller Foundation gave IPR $233,000. Jessup was a member of the wealthy Stotesbury family, partners of J.P. Morgan. His brother John Jessup was a wealthy banker, president Equitable Trust Co., director of Coca Cola and Diamond State Telephone Co.


CEIP has offices in Washington, and in New York at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. It has a $46 million endowment, and annual expenses of $3 million. Its president is Thomas L. Hughes, who presided over the OSS Group at the Dept. of State after it had been disbanded by President Truman. A Rhodes Scholar, he was legislative counsel for Hubert Humphrey 1955-58, adm. asst Chester Bowles, 1959-60, spl. asst to Secretary of State for Intelligence 1961-69, spec. ambassador, chief of mission, rank of ambassador London 1969-70; he had previously served as judge advocate general USAF 1952-54. He is director of German Marshall Fund, USAF Academy, Ditchley Foundation, School of Foreign Service, Georgetown; Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton; Social Sciences Foundation, Hubert Humphrey Institute Public Affairs.


Directors of CEIP are:

Note: Barbara Warne Newell's father was Colston Warne, founder of the consumer movement in the U.S., organized Consumers Union in 1936 on clearly defined Marxist goals (the elimination of private brands replaced by "cooperative" brands, supported by radical journalists, trade unionists and academicians). Consumers Union was organized by Warne, Arthur Kallet, Dewcy Palmer, Frank Palmer, an organizer with the IWW, James Gilman, Julius Hochman, Adelaide Schulkind. Warne wrote his thesis about the "cooperative" movement for Paul Douglas at the University of Chicago. After Consumers Union employees threatend to go on strike "they reluctantly decided to pay salaries 'competitive with capitalist organizations'". Colston Warne was with the Federal Reserve Bank of N.Y. 1920-21, economist OPA 1944-96, Council of Economic Advisers to the President 1947-51, ACLU, Peoples Lobby

The Carnegie Corp. of New York has assets of $346 million, expenditures $13 million in 1980.


Chairman is Alan Pifer, educated at Groton, Harvard and Cambridge England. He has been a director of American Ditchley Foundation since 1975, and is on the board of overseers of Harvard, chairman Presidential Task Force on Education, Presidential Committee of White House Fellowships, African American Institute, director Federal Reserve Bank of N.Y. -- he was secretary U.S. Educational Com. in London 1998-53, director McGraw Hill. Executive vice pres of Carnegie is David Zav Robinson, served with Office of Naval Research London 1959-60, prof. of physics Princeton 1970-76, atomic research.


The Carnegie Corporation was incorporated in 1911 by Andrew Carnegie and Elihu Root, who had been Secretary of War under McKinley and Secretary of Interior under Theodore Roosevelt, [and] lawyer for J.P. Morgan, who took charge of the Carnegie fortune for the program of the World Order.


Directors of Carnegie Corp. include:

As president of the Carnegie Corp., Alan Pifer interlocks with many leading banking institutions, according to a special chart devoted to him in "Federal Reserve Directors: A Study of Corporate Influence", an August 1976 staff report of the House Banking and Currency Committee, which shows he interlocks with Rockefeller Center, J. Henry Schroder Banking Corp., J. Henry Schroder Trust Co., J.P. Morgan Co., Equitable Life, Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and the Cabot Corp.


The Carnegie foundations also interlock with the John and Mary Markle Foundation, established 1927 with $50 million. It dispenses largesse to journalists who espouse the goals of the World Order. Markle was the biggest coal operator in the U.S., partners with the Roosevelt and Delano family in Kentania Coal Corp., which obtained millions of acres for a few cents an acre from impoverished residents of Kentucky and Tennessee, and hauled billions of dollars of coal from their holdings. In 1933, Roosevelt called on Markle to help settle the coal strike.


The first president of Markle Foundation was Frank A. Vanderlip, member of the Jekyll Island team which wrote the Federal Reserve Act in 1910. Lloyd N. Morrissette is now president; he has been vice pres. Carnegie Corp. since 1967, formerly chairman the Rand Corp., director American Council on Germany; directors are:

The Carnegie and Markle Foundations also interlock with the American Council on Germany, founded in 1952, which exercises control over the "free" nation of West Germany.

Together with the German Marshall Fund, it maintains tight control over German government, academic life, and communications in this militarily occupied country.





The German Marshall Fund


The $21 million German Marshall Fund, a branch of the CIA, is headquartered in Washington and spends $5 million a year supervising German affairs.


Its president is Frank Loy, born in Nuremberg. His father's name was Loewi, which he anglicized to the present spelling. (Loy) came to the U.S. in 1939, studied at Harvard, joined the influential West Coast law firm of O'Melveny & Myers 1954-65, political director and spec. economist AID 1965-70, pres. Pennsylvania Co. 1978-79, vice pres. Pan Am Airways 1970-73, director Arvida Corp. (subsidiary Penn Central), Buckeye Pipeline Co., and Edgewater Oil Co.

Other directors of German Marshall Fund are:

These German associated groups had their origin in the Morgenthau Plan, which resolved to lay Germany waste after World War II.


They maintain ironclad censorship in Germany, continue to split Germany into two nations, in order to protect the borders of the Soviet Union (a primary concern), with ruthless economic exploitation of the German people at the hands of the World Order, and extort huge reparations payments from the German workers, who have already paid more than $30 billion.


[Note that this was written before the "fall" of the Berlin Wall and the "collapse" of the Soviet Union, orchestrated by these same power brokers during the late 1980s. --ed]




Gatekeepers and Think Tanks


The most tragic victims of the World Order's network of foundations and universities are the nation's youth. Filled with hope and ambition, they attend colleges to prepare for careers, where their chief advisers are the foundation eunuchs. They are carefully scrutinized to see if they can be useful to the World Order, in which case they may be given grants or fellowships, but the cruel fact is that unless they are fortunate enough to be born into a family connection with members of the World Order, or become protege of a eunuch, most doors will forever remain closed to them.


Despite their talents or ability, they will be relegated to joining the hewers of wood and the drawers of water for the rest of their lives. At no time during their education will they be apprised of the fact that they are the victims of a cruel hoax; that success in business, drama, art or literature will be denied them because they do not have the required connection with the World Order.


The art scene is dominated by the New York art dealers, who in turn are dominated by the Museum of Modern Art, founded and controlled by the Rockefeller family. The founders were Nelson Rockefeller, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller (wife of John D. Jr.), Blanchette Hooker, wife of John D. 3rd, and Lizzie Bliss. Such is their power that they can declare empty beer cans or piles of rope or rocks to be Great Art, worth many thousands of dollars. They achieve a dual purpose of destroying the creative life of the people while promoting the work of their favorite propagandists. The new treasurer of the Smithsonian Museum, Ann Leven, was formerly treasurer of Museum of Modern Art, also senior vice president of corporate planning at Chase Manhattan Bank.


Nov. 1955 Fortune featured an article by William H. Whyte, "Where the Foundations Fall Down", which pointed out that the foundations only grant funds to "big team" projects in institutions which are under their control. Whyte says 76% of all foundation grants are made to these "team" projects, citing huge sums given to the Russian Research Center at Harvard by Carnegie, and Ford grants to the Center for Advanced Study in Behavioral Science at Stanford. Foundation grants are rarely given to individuals, and most can be traced to some underlying propaganda drive, such as the $200,000 which the Rockefeller Foundation gave to establish the National Bureau of Economic Research, whose "studies" effectively dominate the world of American business today.


The involvement of the major foundations in military and espionage work is shown by the makeup of two powerful "think tanks", the Rand Corp. and the Mitre Corp. Chairman of the $180 million Mitre corp. is Robert Charpie, president of Cabot Corp., director First Natl of Boston, Champion and Honeywell. President of Mitre is Robert Everett, who serves on the USAF Science Advisory Board, and Northern Energy Corp.; directors are William T. Golden of Altschul's firm, General American Investors, Block Drug, Verde Exploration Ltd. -- he is also secretary of the Carnegie Instn. Washington; William J. McCune Jr. chairman of Polaroid; Teddy F. Walkowicz, chairman Natl Aviation & Technology Corp.; and Robert C. Sprague, vice pres. of his family firm, Sprague Electric, which interlocks with the defense firm GK Technologies, of which former President Ford is director.


The chairman of Rand Corp. ($50 million research budget annually) is Donald Rumsfeld, President Nixon's righthand man in Washington for many years; president is Donald B. Rice, Jr., served in office of Secretary of Defense 1967-70, OMB 1969-72, director of Wells Fargo; directors are:
