It is also no surprise that one of her first stops on the tour was for a star appearance at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the establishment brain trust that has served as the power behind the throne governing America for most of the past century, regardless of whether a Republican or Democrat has occupied the Oval Office.
This was not Mrs. Clinton’s first visit to the seat of globalist power. As CFR President Richard Haass explained in his introduction for Hillary at the organization’s History Makers Series on Thursday, June 12, in New York City: “This is Secretary Clinton's ninth visit to the Council on Foreign Relations, and we're honored to have her.”
“And,” Haass continued, “I expect I speak for everyone in this room in watching and thanking her for her decades of public service as First Lady, as senator here from the great state of New York, and as secretary of state.”
Hillary: CFR “Mother Ship” Directs State Department Policy
In a July 2009 speech at the CFR’s new Washington, D.C. headquarters, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton referred to the CFR’s New York Pratt House headquarters as her “mother ship” and confessed that the State Department looks to the CFR “to be told what we should be doing and how we should think.” Now, with the CFR office just down the street, she said, she wouldn’t have to go so far for direction.
At that 2009 event, Hillary was also introduced by CFR President Richard Haass, who has infamously editorialized in favor of world government and ending America’s national sovereignty, claiming “states must be prepared to cede some sovereignty to world bodies.” The anti-sovereignty theme of Haass is a favorite refrain and fetish of CFR maestros, who have been in the forefront of promoting world government and the destruction of national independence for most of the past century.
Following her introduction by Haass at that 2009 speech, Clinton said:
Thank you very much, Richard, and I am delighted to be here in these new headquarters. I have been often to, I guess, the mother ship in New York City, but it’s good to have an outpost of the Council right here down the street from the State Department. We get a lot of advice from the Council, so this will mean I won’t have as far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future.
