Essentially it is a book dealing with organization called The Council on Foreign Relations founded by Edward Mandel House, one of the Dullers brothers and others devoted to bringing "socialism as dreamed of by Karl Marx.", to quote House, to this country.
The writing is dry but effective. I think that had he lived, Senator Joseph McCarthy might have written this book himself since the Council is one of groups that he was getting into his sights before Eisenhower stopped him.
What Dan Smoot revealed is how it'c control of the national medias is so pervasive that true and vital news seldom gets to the populace at large. For instance, current members of the CFR include: Dan Rather, Tom Browkaw, Charlene Hunter Gault, and many others we have intrusted to inform and protect us.
His anaylsis of it's goals bear close attention for those who are interested in anwering befuddling questions about U.S. foreign and domestic policies.
Over twenty six years later "The Shadows of Power" by James Perloff, brought the CFR up to date, and the report on how this subversive organization has not been dealt with is not good!
From what one may gather after reading "The Invisible Government" is how many lives have been ruined or lost in order to fulfill the dreams of a few determined to create a "New World Order". If you think this is only the stuff of Ian Flemming or H.G. Wells, this book goes a long way to prove otherwise.Read more ›
