Carroll Quigley (Biography, Books, Book Reviews, Interview, Lectures. Images)

The Life & Legend of Cecil Rhodes (The epic BBC mini-series on one of the most powerful, wealthy and influential men of modern times, the colossus Cecil Rhodes)


The Professor and the President

As a teenager I heard John Kennedy’s summons to citizenship. And as a student at Georgetown, I heard the call clarified by a professor I had named Carroll Quigley, who said America was the greatest country in the history of the world because our people have always believed in two great ideas: first, that tomorrow can be better than today, and second, that each of us has a personal moral responsibility to make it so.

When Bill Clinton spoke these stirring words to millions of Americans during his 1992 acceptance address before the Democratic National Convention upon receiving his party’s nomination for President of the United States, the vast multitude of his television audience paused for a micro-second to reflect: Who is Carroll Quigley and why did he have such a dramatic effect on this young man before us who may become our country’s leader?

Carroll Quigley was a legendary professor of history at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University, and a former instructor at Princeton and Harvard.

He was a lecturer at the Industrial College of the Armed Forces, the Brookings Institution, the U. S. Naval Weapons Laboratory, the Foreign Service Institute of the State Department, and the Naval College.

Quigley was a closely connected elite “insider” to the American Establishment, with impeccable credentials and trappings of respectability.

But Carroll Quigley’s most notable achievement was the authorship of one of the most important books of the 20th Century: Tragedy and Hope – A History of the World in Our Time.

No one can truly be cognizant of the intricate evolution of networks of power and influence which have played a crucial role in determining who and what we are as a civilization without being familiar with the contents of this 1,348-page tome.

It is the “Ur-text” of Establishment Studies, earning Quigley the epithet of “the professor who knew too much” in a Washington Post article published shortly after his 1977 death.

In Tragedy and Hope, as well as the posthumous The Anglo-American Establishment: From Rhodes to Cliveden, Quigley traces this network, in both its overt and covert manifestations, back to British racial imperialist and financial magnate Cecil Rhodes and his secret wills, outlining the clandestine master plan through seven decades of intrigue, spanning two world wars, to the assassination of John Kennedy.

Through an elaborate structure of banks, foundations, trusts, public-policy research groups, and publishing concerns (in addition to the prestigious scholarship program at Oxford), the initiates of what are described as the Round Table groups (and its offshoots such as the Royal Institute of International Affairs and the Council on Foreign Relations) came to dominate the political and financial affairs of the world.

For the ambitious young man from Hope, Arkansas, his mentor’s visionary observations would provide the blueprint of how the world really worked as he made his ascendancy via Oxford through the elite corridors of power to the Oval Office.

The Conservatives Discover Carroll Quigley

Published in 1966, Tragedy and Hope lay virtually unnoticed by academic reviewers and the mainstream media establishment. Then Dr. W. Cleon Skousen, the noted conservative author of the 1961 national best-seller, The Naked Communist, discovered Quigley, and the serious implications of what Quigley had revealed. In 1970, Skousen published The Naked Capitalist: A Review and Commentary on Dr. Carroll Quigley’s Book Tragedy and Hope.

This was soon followed by None Dare Call It Conspiracy. This slim volume by Gary Allen (and Larry Abraham) provided the massive paradigm shift of grassroots, populist conservatives from mere anti-Communism to a much larger anti-elitist world-view.

Millions of copies of these books came into print, and the conservative movement changed forever.

Copies of Tragedy and Hope began disappearing from library shelves. A pirate edition was printed. Quigley came to believe that his publisher Macmillan had suppressed his book. Dr. Gary North, the esteemed writer well known to readers of, has an interesting discussion of these curious facts in the chapter, “Maverick ‘Insider’ Historians,” in his book, Conspiracy: A Biblical View, available on-line.

However some persons believe Carroll Quigley was simply amplifying earlier research in conservative authors Emanuel Josephson’s Rockefeller ‘Internationalist’: The Man Who Misrules The World, and Dan Smoot’s The Invisible Government, or that of the radical sociologist C. Wright Mill’s The Power Elite, which had outlined these same elite networks of power.

I disagree with that narrow assessment. Although there is much to disagree with in interpretation in Quigley’s book, the originality and titanic scope of the work cannot be doubted or disparaged.

In a book much praised by Murray Rothbard, author Carl Oglesby’s The Yankee and Cowboy War: Conspiracies From Dallas To Watergate, has a fascinating discussion of Quigley within a wider framework of American power politics and subterranean intrigue.

And in a volume hailed by Gore Vidal, Christopher Hitchens, before he morphed from Trotskyist man of letters to Neocon mouthpiece, had some insightful musings along the line of Quigley in his Blood, Class, and Nostalgia: Anglo-American Ironies.

In the Preface to his book, The Anglo-American Establishment: From Rhodes to Cliveden, Quigley noted:

I have been told that the story I relate here would be better left untold, since it would provide ammunition for the enemies of what I admire. I do not share this view. The last thing I should wish is that anything I write could be used by the Anglophobes and isolationists of the Chicago Tribune. But I feel that the truth has a right to be told, and once told, can be an injury to no men of good will. Only by a knowledge of the errors of the past is it possible to correct the tactics of the future.

Although his book was written in 1949 it was not published until after his death in 1981. Ironically Quigley was correct concerning the contents of his expose’. As Murray N. Rothbard pointed out in his semi-autobiographical masterwork, The Betrayal of the American Right, the Midwestern voice of Old Right non-interventionism, Colonel Robert McCormick’s Chicago Tribune, published a contemporaneous series of hard-hitting muckraking articles in 1951 attacking what Rothbard described as “the Wall Street-Anglophile Establishment”: “Rhodes’ Goal: Return U.S. to British Empire,” “Rhodes Ideals Slant State Department Policies,” “Rhodes’ Wards Hawk Global Scheme in U.S.,” “Rhodes Grads Influential in Eastern Press — Aid British, Global Propaganda,” “Even Congress Not Immune to Rhodes’ Ideas,” and “OWI Propaganda Linked to Rhodes Men.” Quigley was the author of two other books, The Evolution of Civilizations: An introduction to Historical Analysis; and Weapon Systems and Political Stability: A History.

WWIII At An End??!!

The tide finally seems to be turning in WWIII, with the enemy’s commanders at the CDC hollering, “At ease! You can take off those masks!”

But why? And why now? Is Leviathan about to unleash another, worse ploy, as so many of you suspect? 

Meanwhile, what a marvel that Americans, with their notorious aversion to discomfort and inconvenience, allowed Our Rulers to muzzle them for over a year! But OK, if they didn’t object to those twin devils, isn’t vanity still a major component of the culture? And yet, even the deceitful CDC conceded that COVIDCon preys primarily on the elderly (and who wants to admit he’s ancient?) and—far worse—the obese. So why don’t the masses equate masks with—ugh!—FAT. Old, flabby, unhealthy: that’s the sort of Moron who muzzles himself. Why, then, did so many serfs happily grab a place in that ugly category?

Regardless, your fellow Patriots continue fighting WWIII in their particular theaters—some of them literal.

Slaves Who Love Their Chains

I noticed at a local Walmart today that their large “mask required to enter” signs are gone. Instead, there is just a small sign on the window that says that those who are fully vaccinated can enter without masks. However, not only is there is no longer a nazi at the door checking people for face mask compliance, no one at the door or in the store asks anyone if they have been “fully vaccinated.” So, due to the recent CDC guidance, Walmart seems to have, smartly, just given up being the mask police, at least in those areas without mask mandates, like Florida. Yet, I would say that 95 percent of the people in the store still wore face masks when they did not have to. Certainly not all of these people are unvaccinated. And I am still seeing people at the local county park running or biking at full speed with a mask on their face.

Today’s Quotes

When I thanked Kevin Taylor for alerting me to the State’s abusing the Church of God in Aylmer, Canada, he responded, “Jacob Reaume had his church locked, too.  He has fines like 900K against him plus 50 Million against the church. He knows lesser magistrate, etc. He is pretty sound.”

So I researched Pastor Reaume and discovered two of this martyr’s most magnificent confessions:

At this point, I’ve had enough of the government telling me how I should be leading our people to worship in an attempt to dictate to us what it is that Jesus Christ deserves.” said Reaume. “I don’t think we’re going to change the way we worship any time soon because our government all of a sudden decides it’s a bad idea to worship in person.”

Hold onto your hat, because the next one’s even more thrilling:

One of the assumptions that I think our government has made during this time is that people should be reduced to biotic units whose sole purpose is to avoid contracting a virus that over 99.9 per cent of Canadians haven’t died from in fourteen months,” said Reaume. “I happen to believe that life is to be lived abundantly … and that means sure, we’re going to mitigate risk and reward when it comes to contracting contagions … but at the same time, there’s much more to life.”

Join me in beseeching the Almighty not only to bless us with more such heroes but to replace the Parsons Goat with them.

Canadian Communists Consume Another Congregation

I estimate that the UK is roughly a decade ahead of us in its surrender to Marxism, while Canada is but five years. That explains both regimes’ intensifying persecution of Christians. Here’s news of the latest from our northern neighbor, courtesy of Kevin Taylor. 

Parson Goat, you are directly responsible for this wickedness. Had you remained open rather than capitulating to power-hungry tyrants at the plandemic’s start, had you trusted God instead of government, pastors wouldn’t now rot in jail, nor would churches wear padlocks.

But you didn’t. Nor will anything short of civil war loosen the communists’ stranglehold.

May God have mercy on Parson Goat. Because Patriots certainly shouldn’t.

At Last: A Basic Question Answered!

During a Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing on Tuesday, NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci and the FDA’s Peter Marks admitted nearly half of employees in their agencies have not been jabbed with the experimental COVID-19 vaccinations. …

Senator Burr also asked CDC Director Rochelle Walensky for a percentage of vaccinated employees, but she dodged the question and admitted, “We don’t know.”

“We’re encouraging our employees to get vaccinated,” Walensky said. “We have been doing town halls and education seminars… um, our staff have the option to report their vaccination status, but as you understand the federal government isn’t requiring it.”

Why would the CDC have to hold “education seminars” to convince its employees to take the vaccine?

Bill Martin, who sent me this story, also ridicules the propaganda: the Feds “can’t even convince all of their own kind,” he chortles.

The article optimistically concludes,

Maybe the federal workers know something average Americans don’t.

And maybe they do. Which means about half of these bureaucrats are as stupid and lazy as we all assumed. 

But the other, un-Jabbed half—much as it pains me to admit it—aren’t (imbeciles, I mean. Lazy, yep). 

If you’re like me, you often wonder, “Are the leeches in government stupid or evil?”

And now we know.

Score Another One for Patriots!

Minnesota’s chief commissar, Tim Walz, may have revoked his illegal “mandate” forcing serfs to muzzle themselves, but as Mr. Anonymous cautions…

…let’s not start praising this guy for doing what he should have done a long time ago, or for undoing what he never should have done in the first place.

Instead, thank Northland Baptist Church, Living Word Christian Center, and the Upper Midwest Law Center for having taken Minnesota Governor Tim “Jong” Walz to court and defeated him. It’s brave and committed patriots like these who force tyrants like Walz to heel. Walz was enforcing capacity limits on worship; these courageous pastors and their congregations took him on and won. As a matter of fact, this is his first defeat on the COVID/mask front since he locked Minnesota down last spring.

This court defeat, combined with the reopening of a number of red states, has probably forced Walz’s hand. Rather than being rewarded a year from November, Walz, his Muslim Attorney General Keith Ellison, and corrupt Secretary of State Steve Simon should all be roundly defeated … that is, if Minnesota can manage to get rid of its Dominion voting machines in time.

Hear, hear!

The Definition of a Bio-Weapon: Naming Names

More Pro-Jab Extortion Though, Alas, Not a Cool Mill This Time

That sociopathic troll, Anthony Falsi, admits that masks and other “restrictions” are attempts to coerce us into accepting The Jab:

We want virtually everybody to get vaccinated. What we’re doing now with the relaxation of the restrictions on people who are vaccinated is trying to get back to a degree of normality which people who get vaccinated deserve to have that.

Told ya. 

By the way, Falsi, whole swaths of us out here couldn’t care less about your “restrictions” or “relaxation” of them because we completely ignore you and the CDC—that is, when we’re not ridiculing you. 

That’s been one of the things that’s been the concern, saying, if I get vaccinated, what difference is it going to make? My life hasn’t really changed that much. Well, now your life is going to change that much.

Breathtaking, isn’t it?

For people who are not vaccinated, this might be an incentive for them to get vaccinated. 

Hey, Ohio’s paying a million dollars to The Jabbed. Seems Falsi’s a cheapskate in addition to his other sterling qualities.

But then he backtracks:

The decision that the CDC made was not as an incentive to get people vaccinated, but this could actually have the indirect effect of getting people to be incentivized to get vaccinated.

Wus! Stick to your guns!You confessed that it’s a quid-pro-quo; don’t back down. Let that ugly truth sink into Boobus.

One of the many joys of shunning TV is that Falsi’s whining never wastes my time. But thanks to an impersonation that Graham Dugas forwarded, I can now laugh at what I’m missing.

Traitor Joe’s and Freedom

I don’t shop at Trader Joe’s so I can’t speak from experience about their abuse of those suffering from a surfeit of common sense. But reading the letter Allan Stevo, founder of the organization “My Body, My Choice,”  sent their CEO, said abuse is egregious. I gather this chain has persecuted those customers refusing to don a mask by

Inquir[ing] about specifics of a [medical] condition 

Demand[ing] … a doctor’s note 

Elevat[ing] tension with someone seeking accommodation 

Snide[ly] comment[ing] 

Insist[ing] someone wait at the curb for their groceries…

And the list goes appallingly on, through such outrages as “Encouraging customers to ‘give a piece of your mind’ to someone seeking accommodation” (ahem: isn’t that dangerously close to “inciting violence”?) and “Laughing the phrase ‘no shoes, no shirt, no service’ at a customer seeking accommodation and pointing them out the door…”

Allan is not a guy to sit back while freedom endures such assaults. He’s written a letter to the aforementioned CEO, asking for “assurance from you that such behavior will be taken seriously, will not be tolerated, and will come to a prompt end throughout your company.”  He’s now looking for others to send a second letter, for which he’s written a template: you’re free to email the note as is or amend it as you see fit. 

If you’d like to man the ramparts with Allan, please email him at for his masterpiece to Traitor Joe’s and his suggested reinforcement from you. Someone who knows tells me that this chain abhors negative publicity; no one appreciates public criticism, of course, but apparently ol’ TJ harbors a special paranoia against it. Ergo, Allan’s campaign will likely succeed, and you’ll want to be in on the ground floor.

Attorney Robert Barnes Joins Scott Rouse and Greg Hartley of the Behavior Panel

Attorney Robert Barnes returns with Greg Hartley & Scott Rouse of the Behavior Panel to discuss Body Language Membership! Greg and Scott’s latest online offering puts body language fans together in a community where everyone can learn together.

Greg Hartley

Gregory Hartley’s expertise as an interrogator first earned him honors with the United States Army. More recently, it has drawn organizations such as the Defense Intelligence Agency, Navy SEALS, Federal law enforcement agencies, and national TV to seek his insights about “how to” as well as “why.” He is the author of ten books on body language.

Scott Rouse

Scott is a behavior analyst and body language expert with a focus on healthcare. He holds multiple certificates in advanced interrogation training and has been trained alongside the FBI, Secret Service, U.S. Military Intelligence, and Dept. of Defense.

Robert Barnes

From small-town East Ridge, Tennessee, to the elite environs of the Eastern Ivy league, Robert Barnes walks among the humble and the haughty. Traveling from the everyday to the esteemed, representing clients fighting for their civil rights and celebrities taking on the IRS, Barnes heeds the advice of his newspaper-throwing father, Walter, who was fond of reminding, “Never judge a man until you’ve walked a mile in his shoes”. As a young man, this exposure to widely varying walks of life gave Barnes a unique ability to empathize with and advocate for others no matter their background. Today, he uses this same empathy to serve his clients, persuade his juries, and win over the judges who preside over his trials.

JFK’s War with the National Security Establishment

This talk by Douglas P. Horne is part of the online conference The National-Security State and the Kennedy Administration….

Who were JFK’s major opponents and adversaries within his own government, with regard to the making of foreign policy at the height of the Cold War with the Soviet Union? How did his overall approach to the Cold War change during his Presidency, and why? Since the cover-story of a “lone nut” assassin firing from behind JFK’s limousine is not supported by the medical evidence, an examination of the serious internal conflicts within his own administration over the “making of the sausage” of foreign policy is extraordinarily relevant to what truly happened in Dealey Plaza in November 1963.

Serious scholars should examine in depth, the entire five volume series of Douglas P. Horne’s Inside the Assassination Records Review Board: The U.S. Government’s Final Attempt to Reconcile the Conflicting Medical Evidence in the Assassination of JFK. It is a phenomenal work of brilliance and the highest integrity.

Horne is the former Chief Analyst for Military Records for the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB), established by the JFK Records Act of 1992, which was tasked with defining, locating, and ensuring the declassification (to the maximum extent possible under the JFK Act) of all Federal Records considered “reasonably related” to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Horne details the numerous anomalies and interrupted chain of custody and destruction of key evidence regarding the president’s body, in the autopsy report(s), the autopsy photo collection (particularly the JFK brain photographs), the deliberate alteration and forgery of the extant Zapruder film, and the supposed “magic bullet” found at Parkland Hospital in Dallas. Watch Douglas P. Horne’s definitive five part video documentary series which summarizes his exceptional research, Altered History: Exposing Deceit and Deception in the JFK, Assassination Medical Evidence. Horne has also written the concise authoritative summary volume ,JFK’s War with the National Security Establishment: Why Kennedy Was Assassinated.

While serving as chief analyst of military records at the Assassination Records Review Board in 1997, Douglas P. Horne discovered that the Zapruder Film was examined by the CIA’s National Photographic Interpretation Center two days after the assassination of President Kennedy. In this film, Horne interviews legendary NPIC photo interpreter Dino Brugioni, who speaks for the first time about another NPIC examination of the film the day after the assassination. Brugioni didn’t know about the second examination and believes the Zapruder Film in the archives today is not the film he saw the day after the assassination. Drawing on Volume 4 of his book “Inside the ARRB”, Horne introduces the subject and presents his conclusions.

Would You Take The Jab for $1,000,000?

Ohio’s bizarre little Stalin, Mike DeWack–sorry, DeWine, is betting his serfs will. Ergo, he’s proposed a lottery in which 5 of Big Pharma’s guinea pigs in Ohio will win $1,000,000. Further evidence that this is a really bad idea comes from the fact that he’s already spreading it: DeWack has also promised five “teens who get vaccinated” “five full-ride scholarships to state schools…”

For sure this isn’t his money he’s wasting. No, your taxes are at work here: “The money will come from existing federal coronavirus relief funds.”

And of course the media leapt aboard this Satanic bandwagon, cheerily noting,

The UCLA COVID-19 Health and Politics Project found that people said they would be more willing to be vaccinated if offered cash payments of $25 to $100…

Yo, DeWack: you’re waaaaaayyyyyyy overpaying. What a chump!!!

USAToday also helpfully observes,

Here are your very rough odds of winning the prizes. Those numbers are subject to change as more people get the vaccine.

For the scholarships: 1 in 34,686.

For the million: 1 in 944,067. 

For context, your odds of winning $1 million Powerball are 1 in 11,688,053.52.”

Is that stench I smell utter desperation? Indeed:

42 percent of Ohioans who have received at least one dose of the vaccination and the number of first shots given [has] declined nearly 80% since a peak of 485,860 doses given during the first week of April…”

And Ohioans so oppose DeWack’s tyranny that he’ll have to “lift mask mandate, all COVID-19 health orders June 2” after “abandon[ing] his previous goal … set … on March 4: 50 new cases per 100,000 residents during the past two weeks.”

Congrats, Ohioans!

Congrats to Montanans! They are officially breathing free as of last Friday, when the governor “signed a bill into law putting a hard damper on county/city/local government ability to interfere in the relationship between businesses and their customers,” according to Roger Mitchell, who sent this happy news. The legislation “invalidat[es] city and county mask mandates and capacity restrictions created by health officers and city leaders…”

That’s a start. But until we abolish those Marxist critters known as “Public Health bureaus,” they’ll continue to eviscerate freedom a la this past year. Drive a stake through their hearts (if any they have) and be done with it. 

Meanwhile, neighboring Wyoming “joins other states including Alabama, Minnesota, South Carolina, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Idaho, Montana, Texas and South Dakota that have all either passed legislation or issued orders to prevent mandatory vaccinations or COVID passport schemes.” Thanks to Monnie for alerting me to another heartening story!

Is COVID’s Purpose To Enslave Us—Or Distract Us?


The audit in Maricopa County is the last chance for America to stop the Biden team of communists from completing their destruction of America while setting up the country to lose World War III. America is not paying attention to the audit and there is nothing more important right now. If Arizona were to be flipped for Trump, the dominoes would begin to topple and many other swing states would move in Trump’s direction. This is particularly true if jaiL [sic] time was attached to corrupt election officials.

The same Progressives and Marxists who hope to enslave us via COVID—or distract us from their theft of the election?—are behind the fraudulent franchise.

That Euphemism for “Mob Rule”

Mark Carroll advises:

My oldest friend and I were recently discussing “democracy.” (majority/mob rule) He mentioned that he hated that word.

I am sick of Hillary Clinton talking about “Our Democracy.” She harps about it constantly; telling us about all the threats to “our democracy.” Recently on his TV program, even Tucker Carlson referred to “our constitutional democracy.”

Frankly, I hate that word, too. We are not now, and never have been, a democracy – although the left has conditioned us to use that word and tries to transform us into one.

The Founders knew the dangers of democracy:

“…democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”   James Madison, Federalist Papers Number 10

The word ‘democracy’ is nowhere in the Declaration of Independence.

The word ‘democracy’ is nowhere in the Constitution of the United States.

The word ‘democracy’ is nowhere in the 50 state constitutions.

“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government”  Article IV, Section 4, US Constitution

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands…”*

By the way, a republic is the rule of law, where the rights of the minority are protected – whether that’s one person or 49% of the people. Contrast that with democracy, where,on a whim, 51% of the people can take your rights away.

1928 U.S. Army Training Manual:

“Democracy: A government of the masses. Authority derived through mass meeting or any form of “direct” expression. Results in mobocracy. Attitude toward property is communistic — negating property rights. Attitude toward law is that the will of the majority shall regulate, whether it be based upon deliberation or governed by passion, prejudice, and impulse, without restraint or regard to consequences. Results in demagogism, license, agitation, discontent, anarchy.”

And then the change:

The Soldiers Guide, Department of the Army Field Manual, 1952:

“Meaning of democracy. Because the United States is a democracy, the majority of the people decide how our government will be organized and run…”

The majority of the people DO NOT decide how our government will be organized and run – that’s the Constitution.

The best example of democracy in action:

Pilate: “I find no guilt in this man.”

The mob: “Crucify Him!”

The next time someone uses the word democracy – punch them in the nose.

A final indictment of democracy: it is usually a way-station on the road to Hell—I mean, Marxism.

*Quoting from the pledge of allegiance doesn’t mean I endorse it. I’m just using something everyone knows to contrast our founding as a republic and not a democracy.
