The Rhodes Scholars Guiding Biden’s Presidency

While the WEF’s Young Global Leader program has recently become infamous, it follows the model of a much older program and think tank established with the ill-begotten gains of Cecil Rhodes.

The Rhodes Scholars Guiding Biden’s Presidency

The recent, pandemic-ridden years have involved a steep and often traumatic learning curve for many citizens across the Trans Atlantic. One particularly shocking revelation that has ripped virally across the internet in recent days revolves around the revelations that the World Economic Forum’s ‘Young Global Leaders’ have been positioned across western governments and powerful private institutions over the past three decades. 

Videos of Klaus Schwab bragging that Young Leaders have been positioned across the governments of Canada, Argentina, Europe and beyond are now being posted across social media platforms on a daily basis, confirming the suspicions of many that the World Economic Forum is not a benign business networking operation, as it has tried to project for the credulous. Rather, it is something much darker and insidious. 

Set up in 1993 as the Global Leaders of Tomorrow and renamed WEF Young Leaders Forum in 2004 (fueled with funds from such benevolent institutions as JP Morgan Chase and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation), over 1400 young leaders (under the age of 38) from both public and private sectors have been processed through the program. For those tapped to become members of this elitist clique, they agree to attend six years of regular WEF conferences featuring seminars, focus groups and other special experiences both at Davos and at regional WEF events, at which point they graduate and become “alumni” who, in turn, become capable of nominating future young leaders.

Just a tiny sampling of the prominent figures who have been processed and installed into positions of influence to advance the WEF globalist agenda over the past 30 years include Angela Merkel, Nicholas Sarkozy, Emmanuel Macron, Tony Blair, Mark Zuckerberg, José Manuel Barroso, Bill Gates, Chrystia Freeland, Pete Buttigieg, Jacinda Arden (PM New Zealand), Jack Ma (Ali Baba founder), Larry Fink (Blackrock CEO), Larry Page (Google founder), Lynn Forrester de Rothschild (Council for Inclusive Capitalism founder), Jimmy Wales (Wikipedia founder), Peter Thiel (Paypal founder), Leonardo Di Caprio (tool), Richard Branson (Virgin Records CEO), Jeff Bezos (Amazon founder), Stephan Bancel (Moderna CEO), Pierre Omidyar (Ebay co-founder), Alizia Garza (co-founder BLM), Jonathan Soros (son of sociopath) and, according the Schwab, himself “half the Canadian Cabinet” under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

As important as it is to hold this disturbing fact in mind, it is even more important not to lose sight of the deeper historical forces at play and the older institutional practice of talent searching young blood upon which the YGL Program is based.

Just as Klaus Schwab was never his own man, having been trained by his mentors Maurice Strong (co-founder of the WEF) [1] and his Harvard mentor Henry Kissinger, so too were Klaus’ Young Leaders merely a modern version of an older practice that has been at play for over 114 years. This older institution is the Rhodes Scholarship system and the associated Round Table Movement, which created both Chatham House in 1919 and its American branch, dubbed “The Council on Foreign Relations,” in 1921.

This program has been incredibly influential and has also generated immense damage over the last century. Thousands of young Americans have been processed through the halls of Oxford since its founding who are then re-inserted back into their native land with a religious-like zeal to advance an agenda, the full scope of which very few of them truly comprehend.

The Example of Biden’s Cabinet

During the first year of the Biden administration, swarms of Oxford-trained Rhodes Scholars were swept into dominant positions of power across America’s domestic and foreign policy landscape. 

The hegemony of the Council on Foreign Relations as a major top-down planning center for the Rules-Based International Order has also been firmly re-established after having been relegated to a back seat during the four year period of Donald Trump’s presidency. Trump’s term was referred to by CFR President Richard Haass as “the aberration”. Haass himself is a Rhodes Scholar, having graduated from Oxford’s Oberlin College in 1978.

The CFR and the Rhodes Scholarship program are simply two sides of the same process that have acted as a key pillar to the establishment of fifth column operations within the USA, and the Trans Atlantic Community more generally, during the past century. Both the CFR and the Rhodes Scholarship were established by the ill-begotten fortunes of Cecil Rhodes. 

Cecil Rhodes’ Vision Revisited

Every year since its creation in 1902, over 30 talented young American scholars have been rewarded each year with the privilege of an all-expenses-paid brainwashing in the halls of Oxford University, on the dime of the riches left to posterity by the deceased diamond magnate Cecil Rhodes, before being re-deployed back to their home nations.

Rhodes himself was a leading mining magnate who was used by the powerful financiers of London to consolidate mining operations across South Africa, thereby cornering the global diamond market and founding such rapacious institutions as DeBeers. Rhodes used his economic influence to rapidly ascend through the ranks of political office, becoming Prime Minister of Cape Colony, which comprised much of today’s South Africa, from 1890-1896.

During this time, Rhodes oversaw the vast theft of lands from native Africans while also guaranteeing that no blacks would be permitted to play any role in the political process by tripling the wealth requirement for voting.

Rhodes consolidated British imperial control over much of southern Africa by directing the invasion and takeover of the region north of Cape Town (today’s Zambia and Zimbabwe), which later became dubbed Rhodesia.

During the second Boer War against the Transvaal Republic (a coalition of Dutch settlers and Zulus), Rhodes’ network of sociopathic imperial managers, dubbed “Milner’s Kindergarten,” worked with Lord Kitchener to innovate new genocidal techniques for asymmetrical warfare. These techniques included poisoning water systems  and establishing a new model of concentration camps, which killed over forty thousand innocent civilians via starvation and disease. 

Commenting upon the rates of children dying in the concentration camps, Lord Milner, a close ally of Rhodes, stated the “fact that the death rate among young children in the camps was still not dropping. ‘The theory that, all the weakly children being dead, the rate would fall off is not so far borne out by the facts… The strong ones must be dying now and they will all be dead by the spring of 1903.’”

This concentration camp system proved incredibly effective at breaking the spirits of the Transvaal soldiers who soon succumbed to the empire’s stranglehold across South Africa. It was later adopted by the Nazis during WWII.

Rhodes’ early disciples included such luminaries as Lord Alfred Milner, Sir Halford Mackinder, George Parkin, W.T. Stead and the Canadian oligarch Vincent Massey (to name a few). His early backers included high level figures among the British intelligentsia including Prince Edward Albert and Lord Nathaniel Rothschild, who saw that a new strategy was needed to halt the spread of the American System and its policies around the world, particularly in the wake of Lincoln’s victory over the South during the Civil War.

Empire in Crisis: The Late 19thCentury Breakdown of Unipolarism 

During the last decades of the 19th century, it was becoming increasingly clear to many that the unipolar days of the British Empire stood on shaky foundations. Starting in the 1870s, a new multipolar system of win-win cooperation was emerging internationally due to the spread of nationalist systems of political economy, modelled on the best attributes of America’s Hamiltonian system. 

In Germany, the Zollverein was established under Chancellor Bismarck, which unified the compartmentalized state around a holistic protective tariff to block the dumping of cheap goods from abroad, while uniting Germany’s regions around internal free trade, productive credit, rail development, industrial growth and other labor reforms. These reforms had been driven by the teachings of the influential German economist Friedrich List, who formulated his system during his five years in the USA. He was among the first to coin the term “American System of Political Economy” in 1827. 

In Russia, Finance Minister Sergei Witte led a parallel reform, adopting protectionism to favor the growth of native agro-industrial power while driving continental interconnectivity via the Trans Siberian Railway (made with Baldwin Locomotives from Philadelphia), which was assisted by teams of American engineers. Witte worked closely with a network of nationalists who had worked closely with Lincoln to save the union from British-directed dissolution during the Civil War. He initiated the sale of Alaska with plans to extend rail and telegraph through the Bering Strait and launched a vast anti-corruption program in Russia itself.

Protectionism, anti-corruption reforms and internal improvements were adopted in France by the government of Sadi Carnot and his Foreign Minister Gabriel Hanotaux and also in Japan, where American advisors like Erasmus Peshine Smith were helping the restored Meiji government adopt national banking programs and rail development.

What was most frightening for the upper echelons of the British elite, was that these developments were not isolated to the borders of various states wishing to break free of British dominance of private finance and maritime shipping – they now extended across borders. Bismarck’s Berlin-to-Baghdad railway was one example, as was the Russia-Chinese railway through Manchuria.

Rail projects extending the newly built Trans Continental railway through British Columbia, and then through Alaska and the Bering Strait into Eurasia, were being discussed by statesmen and engineers on both sides of the Atlantic from the moment Alaska was sold to the USA in 1867. These discussions continued until the day Witte was ousted from power in 1906. The 1890 Cosmopolitan Railway map published by Lincoln-ally and former Governor of Colorado William Gilpin is a reminder of the trajectory of the sort of world then being brought into existence.

The growth of a community of win-win cooperation as the basis for international law was a prospect deemed intolerable by many devout social Darwinists and eugenicists among the British ruling class.

Outlining his vision for the new paradigm then coming into being, Gilpin wrote in 1890: 

“The weapons of mutual slaughter are hurled away; the sanguinary passions find a check, a majority of the human family is found to accept the essential teachings of Christianity IN PRACTICE… Room is discovered for industrial virtue and industrial power. The civilized masses of the world meet; they are mutually enlightened, and fraternize to reconstitute human relations in harmony with nature and with God. The world ceases to be a military camp, incubated only by the military principles of arbitrary force and abject submission. A new and grand order in human affairs inaugurates itself out of these immense concurrent discoveries and events” 

[Cosmopolitan Railway p. 213]

This was not an operating system acceptable to the misanthropic ideals of Malthusian social engineers, whose self interest was located in keeping the world divided, ignorant, hungry and at war. Something had to be done.

Cecil Rhodes and the Creation of a New Religion

The early members of the Rhodes Trust hive interfaced closely with London’s Fabian Society throughout the 20th century and became the new disciplined elite that gradually infiltrated throughout society. This new breed of imperial management exerted its influence in much the same way earlier Jesuit operations had been formed and deployed across Europe beginning in the 16th century.

For anyone confused as to the purpose of this Rhodes Scholarship program, one need look no further than Rhodes’ 1877 Confessions of Faith and Seven Wills, which called for the domination of “inferior races” by Anglo-Saxon superiority, as well as the ultimate recapturing of America and the creation of a new Church of the British Empire:

“Let us form the same kind of society, a Church for the extension of the British Empire. A society which should have its members in every part of the British Empire working with one object and one idea we should have its members placed at our universities and our schools and should watch the English youth passing through their hands just one perhaps in every thousand would have the mind and feelings for such an object, he should be tried in every way, he should be tested whether he is endurant, possessed of eloquence, disregardful of the petty details of life, and if found to be such, then elected and bound by oath to serve for the rest of his life in his Country. He should then be supported if without means by the Society and sent to that part of the Empire where it was felt he was needed.’

In another will, Rhodes described in more detail his intention to create an organization: 

“For the establishment, promotion and development of a Secret Society, the true aim and object whereof shall be for the extension of British rule throughout the world. The colonization by British subjects of all lands where the means of livelihood are attainable by energy, labour, and enterprise and especially the occupation by British settlers of the entire Continent of Africa, the Holy Land, the Valley of the Euphrates, the islands of Cyprus and Candia, the whole of South America, the islands of the Pacific not heretofore possessed by Great Britain, the whole of the Malay Archipelago, these aboard of China and Japan, [and] the ultimate recovery of the United States of America as an integral part of the British Empire.”

Describing his thinking to his disciple W.T. Stead, Rhodes wrote: “Please remember the key of my idea discussed with you is a Society, copied from the Jesuits as to organisation”.

A Calamitous 20th Century

As generations passed, the continuity of purpose that transcended individual lives of players on the stage was maintained by certain organizations that grew out of the original Rhodes/Milner Round Table movements, which now had branches in the Anglo-Saxon majority countries that had formed part of the British Empire. By 1919, after the Round Table had taken control of Canadian and British governments during 1911 and 1916 coups, this group created the Royal Institute for International Affairs (also known as Chatham House). 

By 1921, an American branch was set up called the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), which was staffed with Rhodes Scholars and Fabians and has maintained a continuity of intention to the present day. This organization spawned dozens of influential sub-organizations, which always interface with a form of “central command”. When Hillary Clinton once referred to the CFR as the “mother ship” in 2009, this is what she was referring to.

Although it was inaugurated in 1921, the CFR’s creation can be traced to the same May 30, 1919 meeting at the Hotel Celeste in France that also saw the birth of the Royal Institute for International Affairs. Leading members among the 50 Anglo-American delegates attending that founding meeting included Round Table leader Lionel Curtis, Lord Eustice Percy, German-American financier Paul Warburg and Wilson-advisor Edward M. House. Many of these figures (including House and Warburg) had been instrumental in instituting the US’Federal Reserve System in 1913, and had also gone far to finance the Bolshevik Revolution that turned Russia inside out.

The official Chatham House website described the founding meeting in the following terms: 

“At the Hotel Majestic, Curtis gave a rousing speech where he told the assembled scholars and officials that it was up to them, people who operated at the intersection of high politics and scholarship, to shape the new peace by educating the public on international issues. There was also an expectation, underpinned by Anglo-American social connections and institutions such as the Rhodes scholarships, that it would be up to Britain and the United States to determine the course of international politics in the post-war period.”

Branches in Canada, Australia, and South Africa were set up in 1928, 1933 and 1934, respectively. 

Although many historians refer to the Council on Foreign Relations as “an American organization,” with the earlier Chatham House acting as junior partner, the truth is just the opposite.

A young student of Harvard’s William Yandell Elliot (himself a leading Rhodes Scholar) was none other than former Secretary of State Sir Henry Kissinger who stated gushingly at a May 10, 1981 Chatham House event:

“The British were so matter-of-factly helpful that they became a participant in internal American deliberations, to a degree probably never practiced between sovereign nations… In my White House incarnation then, I kept the British Foreign Office better informed and more closely engaged than I did the American State Department… It was symptomatic”.

It is no exaggeration to state that many important events that happened during the dark bipolar years of the Cold War intimately involved the top-down role of Rhodes Scholars. Occupying critical positions within the State Department in both the USA and Canada, UN bureaucracy and Foundations, Rhodes Scholars operated with a level of discipline, enthusiasm and coherence unseen in any modern imperial civil service [2].
From Escott Reid’s designs for NATO two full years before the anti-Russian organization was brought online, to George McGhee’s advance of the Truman Doctrine, to Dean Rusk’s guiding hand behind the Korean War, US support of the French in Vietnam and later US involvement in Vietnam, to Senator J. William Fulbright’s promotion of globalism and a European Union, everywhere you see a bad idea being born during the post-WWII years, there is almost invariably a Rhodes Scholar or “Rhodie” to be found behind it.  
Two years before his death on April 12, 1945, President Franklin Roosevelt shared his concerns of this foreign agenda and its disciples permeating his own State Department, waiting to take control of US foreign policy at a moment’s notice, when he said to his son Elliot:
“You know, any number of times the men in the State Department have tried to conceal messages to me, delay them, hold them up somehow, just because some of those career diplomats over there aren’t in accord with what they know I think. They should be working for Winston. As a matter of fact, a lot of the time, they are [working for Churchill]. Stop to think of ’em: any number of ’em are convinced that the way for America to conduct its foreign policy is to find out what the British are doing and then copy that!” I was told… six years ago, to clean out that State Department. It’s like the British Foreign Office….”
Of course, FDR’s vision for a world of US-Russia-Chinese cooperation and internationalization of the New Deal was more than a little anathema to Cold War, which Rhodes Scholars had been preparing so they could sculpt the world order after WWII. Neither FDR, his allies nor his grand design could be tolerated for long [3].
While the Rhodes Scholar hives managed to permeate ivy league schools, media outlets, private corporations, elected offices and the civil service during the 20th century, as laid out by Professor Carrol Quigley’s posthumously published The Anglo-American Establishment, the prize of the presidency remained an elusive trophy… until the day one of Quigley’s own students returned from Oxford and soon became Governor of Arkansas.
