FOUNDATIONS: THEIR POWER AND INFLUENCE by Rene Wurmser
REVIEW: Shocking, Little-Known, and Gigantically Important American History
This is a gigantically important book. Wurmser documents how the great tax-exempt foundations (Rockefeller, Carnegie, Ford, et al) went about deliberately capturing and collectivizing (i.e, communizing) the U.S. public school system since around the turn of the 20th century. This is no theory either. It is historical fact. It is a part of the congressional record. Two separate congressional investigation hearings confirmed it–the latter Reece Committee Hearings in particular. But where there is money, where there is a lot of money, there is power, and both congressional inquiries were only allowed to get so far, and uncover enough criminal conspiratorial behavior, before they were summarily shut down. Wurmser documents how the Reece Committee–which was uncovering traitorous unconstitutional activity on the part of the foundations with every rock it was lifting up to look under–was suddenly forced to close up shop and call an end to the proceedings when one of its members, representative Wayne Hays of Ohio, suddenly imploded in front of and during the proceedings and began to spazmodically interrupt witnesses every 2 or 3 seconds like an obstreperous infant. It became obvious to the Reece Committee that one of their own was a mole. Hays later admitted to some that he was getting his orders to act that way at the hearings from the White House itself (at the time harboring the Eisenhower Administration, though that hardly matters when one considers that presidents come and go, but gov’t agencies are there to stay). One has to wonder where the White House was getting its orders from. And that leads us right back to the foundations, which represent the Money Lords of this nation, of which Wurmser is describing in this shocking but little-known work. (Indeed, the fact that so few know about this book makes it all the more shocking.)
The book “heats up” toward the end, when it starts actually describing the proceedings of the Reece Committee, and the traitorous behavior of Hays. As I was reading this part, I kept picturing Hays in my mind, and the picture I kept getting was very much akin to the traitorous character of “Dr. Smith” from the old “Lost in Space” TV show. It’s that ludicrous, this behavior that Hays was really and actually allowed to get away with, which really and actually caused a congressional inquiry to be shut down, and an investigation called off.
