  1. St Gregory of Nyssa says:

    Carroll Quigley was a Harvard-educated historian who largely espoused mainstream views. He was a strong supporter of the UN and the EEC (which later became the EU). He believed that the American and British elites, including the secret societies mentioned above, were defenders of democracy, tolerance, and progress. Occasionally, though, he disagreed with their methods. He believed that the problem with American schools was that they were too lenient and soft, and promoted creativity and sentimentality too heavily to the detriment of discipline — exactly the opposite of people like John Taylor Gatto. Later writers such as G Edward Griffin and Anthony Sutton capitalized upon Professor Quigley’s research into elites in order to ascribe to them nefarious aims. Before Professor Quigley’s death, he disputed these later theories and claimed that his work had been misquoted.

    • weilunion says:

      Quigley was a firm capitalist and spokesperson for parts of the capitalist class.

      His work only told the middle classes and students like Clinton how the world worked.

      Before Quigley, the radical movements of the early 20th century could have told you much more about who ruled and rules the world. But radical ideas have been suppressed,while Quigley’s were published and shelved.

      • Duck says:

        ‘..His work only told the middle classes and students like Clinton how the world worked…’

        True, I kinda think he wanted more people to read it though, if only for his own ego. He probably thought most people would agree with him that it was all mostly a good thing

  2. renee.a says:

    Good podcast James

    • AnCap_Kev says:

      That’s what makes James one of the only sources of news I trust. He knew his SH!T way back in 2008! And he corrects himself when he makes a mistake, unlike almost all other journalist would today!

  3. Steve Smith says:

    At approximately minute 36:09 James reads “Eastern establishment” when the text on the video reads “American political life”.
    What did I miss?

  4. candlelight says:

    Lo and behold!!!

    Interesting that this podcast seemingly has spontaneously dug itself up just now, and dusted itself off! Lol

    But, now I’m wondering, have I very recently – like within the last 24 hrs, recently – confused Carroll Quigley with Anthony Sutton? I think I may have.

    In any event, this subject is very deep. I dare say that in reality, its bottom is about as deep as it gets, as human affairs go, further and deeper still, believe it or not, than go the archives of even The Corbett Report! 🙂

    Thank you, very kindly, for digging it up!

    Perhaps we will get to the bottom of it, someday.

    • candlelight says:

      [At 44.25 – ha ha ha, James, the spurious quotation alert! Spurious, indeed!]


      I wonder if you were reading from another edition of Quigley’s
      tomes, as Steve Smith points out above, the divergence of the written and spoken words. There were a number of such divergences.

      One slight divergence, or perhaps you simply misread, was when you left out the written word “radical”, where Quigley was describing “an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act.”

      Funny how Quigley used the term “radical” in describing those on the Right who saw Communist infiltration and perversion of the capitalist system. This precisely describes the G. Edward Griffin of 1969. In fact, I was rather surprised, and felt like I was suddenly living in a strange, alternative universe, to see just how radical and far-right Griffin was back in 1969! I mean, he was so radical that he could have probably made the ordinary conservative, expressing somewhat less angst than he, look like a Communist sympathizer! Basically, Griffin was advocating for ratting people out. The equivalent of the current “if you see something, say something.”

      So, it’s beyond ironic, then, Quigley’s assertion, claiming there was frequent cooperation between such seemingly disparate organizations, the so-called international Anglophile network (secretive Rhodes groups, presumably)and the Communists!

      What a world!

      But, as you end this podcast with Quigley touching upon, just about as briefly as Quigley could, the notion of the all seeing eye – the adopted symbol of the Masons – landing on the dollar bill as being “…a totally different story.”; there are, indeed, many layers to all this, with the Quigley exposition being but one.

      To be sure, it doesn’t start and end with Cecil Rhodes.

      Maybe Rhodes, himself, was a front man for a more established and more deeply embedded secret society that precedes him.

      Is it at all feasible to assume we could dig that secret society up?

      Should it even be attempted?

      • weilunion says:

        The secret society is in the open: it is called capitalism and if one is lucky enough to be in the .001% then they are part of the secret society.

        That the ruling class conspires against the working classes and dispossessed is not revealing in and of itself(it is the class struggle). That a small percentage of the world global elites, 85 according to Oxfam, have the combined wealth of half of the world’s poor is not a secret. It is an open sore, a moral calamity and a human tragedy.

        Capitalism accumulates wealth at the top as we see with the pandemic and billionaire’s net worth growth as well as corporate growth. That a private bank or banks representing private capital exist to further their own interests is also not startling.

        As to Griffith he was part of the John Birch Society. They were so far to the right they accused Eisenhower of being a Communist.

        Griffith is controlled opposition. Research his views he is not to be trusted.

  5. nosoapradio says:

    It is vital today to revisit the very fundamental premise of the organized conspiracy.

    It’s every bit as important as it is frustratingly challenging to get anyone to look at it.

    The powers of cognitive bias, rationalization and peer pressure are so strong and the powers of questioning one’s fundamental belief systems and recognition of personal capacity for tyranny and destruction so weak

    as to make for some formidable challenges for the emancipation of humankind, and in this day of institutionalized fourth industrial transhumanist resets, for its very survival.

    People must learn this information and quigley! Very quigley! Before the immunity passports and vaccination campaigns have been completed… and my children are irreparably locked in…

  6. jude.c says:

    Twice now on Tucker Carlson have been reports of newly spotted… UFO’s! Suddenly the govt. is being transparent about their findings? And the best part, they show video. These recent aliens ships are… wait for it… 3 green pyramid shaped flying saucers. You can’t make this stuff up. Prepare for a reason for the world to unite, to fight hostile alien forces (HAARP reformed)

  7. g.bon says:

    Fascinating listen again, James. Many thanks!
    Could I please be pointed in the direction where this podcast ended: the pyramid on the dollar bill is older than the masons?
    Where does this symbol come from? How old is the human race, what society used that symbol before ‘we’ did?
    Best wishes and many thanks again..

  8. ladyl says:

    This is the reason I join James 14 months ago. To hear some truth, to talk about things that others dare not say. So this program is very educational for lots of people. But must remember that before Carroll Quigley and before Rhodes there where the famous Protocols. The Protocols are the blueprint, absolutely nothing have change up to today and nothing will change. My experience tell me that reading Abbe Barruel “History of Jacobinism”, John Robinson “Proof Of Conspiracy” and completing with Henny Ford “The International Jew” , you can say with confidence that you know everything about the conspirators.

  9. Denis says:

    “Certainly ranking up there with that of Rothschild”. Lol. Elephant in the room.

    • Duck says:

      The invisible elephant… back a hundred years ago everyone knew about them, now i know people think their a made up story or never even heard of them.

      Magic…. (or owning the press, who knows?)


      At one time people even did movies about them- see review above… I saw the film and it was actually pretty good

      • Denis says:

        Thanks for the link. Yup. Like Scrooge McDuck I guess, they are benevolent… ok let’s be realistic, ‘neutral’ billionaires. They just do business, and control all money in the world.

  10. Carol says:

    Incredible episode! To think this was broadcast in 2008! Keep coming across Bank for International settlements alot lately while doing research. So much is fitting into place at last – many thanks for all your excellent work James.

    Speaking of the Warburgs. Look up “Bettina Warburg”. She was born in 1900 and died in 1990 and yet she’s the age as if she was BORN in 1990. A further search had an article saying not much was known about her personal life. Yeah right, as if the Warburgs are unknown. I don’t know what to think about it. It’s just creepy.

    • Duck says:

      Families do like to recycle their names, especially if your fav aunt or something just dropped dead…maybe thats what happened?

      I dont have access to Ancestry.com or anything like that, did you find birth dates over lapping or familial connections?

      The new one is the one doing the TED talk on crypto i guess?

      Cant find a photo of OLD Bettina Warburg and dont have a newspaper archive subscription to see if one ever came up in the newspapers… did you have any luck?

      The Old one looks like a bad apple though just from this- psychiatry being as much a weapon as fractional reserve banking her dad pushed for..actually I think he was also a funder of the Bolsheviks too but I’d need to go check

      “..Between 1938 and 1943, Warburg was instrumental in organizing and financing the emigration of 154 Jewish psychiatrists and psychoanalysts from Germany and Austria. Much of this was done using her own and her family’s money.[4]..”

      Hmn…. getting them out in 1943 must have taken some pull

      “…Yeah right, as if the Warburgs are unknown…”
      How often do you see the really rich and important people in the news, lol?

  13. Paul says:

    I like that you replay older articles that are more or less timeless. I find most content creators only ever create new content, even when older content is replayable and relevant.

  14. cj14 says:

    Just finished listening to the lecture on PNAC. A very enlightening and educational couple of hours. Thank you James.

  15. weilunion says:

    The Council on Foreign Relations has been getting some serious competition from a little known, four decades old organization called The Council on National Policy (CNP).

    The CNP is by far the most representative of the nativist and fascist Republican Party. And they are also a ‘secret society’; little is known of their actual members or what they do when assembled.

    As the traditional multinational globalists search to conquer the world, so do the nativist fascists.

    The international ruling elite are organized up to a point.

    But there are definitive arguments,splits and rifts within ranks of members of the ruling elite. That is what you see now going on in the US with the Reichpubs and the corporate democratic fascists clash over ‘policy’.

    You also see it in Europe with the rise of French nationalism, to use one example.

    The real issue is of course economic and geo-political, meaning it has to do with imperialism and capitalism.

    China changes the global playground as well. Yes, it was built up by transnational corporations,but its power now seems uncontrollable.

    This is one reason we see a rise in international fascism. This, and the fact there is no alternative vision of the world that has traction.

    For more on the CNP, its ties to Dominionism, Discordianism, the religious right, Erik Prince, mercenaries, billionaire activists and 4th and 5th Generation Warfare see:

    How the CNP, a Republican Powerhouse, Helped Spawn Trumpism, Disrupted the Transfer of Power, and Stoked the Assault on the Capitol


    • Duck says:


      I’ll listen to the podcast later but I looked at the article… and while its pretty interesting its spun too far into the left/right fake to be taken overly seriously

      First off… the Religious Right is pretty much nothing but a scam these days. Most Churches are not even conservative these days, most people dont even go anymore, those that DO go often dont vote on religious grounds.

      If Christian voters had any power to do anything the US would not have drag queen story hour and homo friendly schools in even the most conservative state… the culture war is OVER and they just drag the corpse out now and then to scare left wing voters.

      Dominionism, if it was EVER a real force in Gov (which I doubt TBH) was as much a scam on the religious as Democrat party socialism was on the poor.

      The capitol riots 100% benefited the transfer of power to Biden, since they gave an excuse to the Republicans to drop their stupid motions without having their base dump them.

      Trump was 100% as fake as Q …. consider that policy wise he was a Democrat of 20 or 30 years ago. Trump had zero intention of stopping the transfer of power… my prediction is that he will spent the next election cycle sucking up money and votes and keeping everyone where the rulers want them- conservatives split and Democrats terrified.

      The demographic flip has happened (about the same time as the religious one) in the USA, Whites are no longer the majority and are the only group that splits its vote left and right.. non white voters vote democrat ‘pretty much’ (yes, I know its not 100%) exclusively REGARDLESS of if they are religious or social conservatives.

      This means Republicans will be lucky to win any real power again and must content themselves scamming their donors….

      The Democrats will push super left (and corporate) and the Republicans will be the lite version of the same.

    Lots of potential band names in there…

    Lord Lithium
    The Smuts
    Carol and the Quigleys

    Seriously, I learned a lot from this episode of Corbett Report. I downloaded both The Anglo-American Establishment and Tragedy and Hope (HOPE???) which is not downloadable on the archives site but there are several bit torrent versions at concen dot org including an audio book. To be honest, I heard about concen in one of Mark Passio’s later video podcasts. There is just so much stuff on there; both concen and whatonearthishappening dot com. Concen is strictly bit torrent but that’s not hard to setup.

    The Vaxpyres
    Type mRNA

    Speaking of band names, unless more people come around, live music is dead. So is hope.

  17. pyoneer says:

    Wow! I had to pause the video around the 5min mark. Jan Smuts was a president of Rhodes secret society?
    I only heard about him before from Allan Savory, the founder of Holistic Management who built upon the philosophy from Jan Smuts book “Holism and Evolution”. I wonder if Allan is aware of that background…..

  18. Jed says:

    I’m putting a direct link on this episode for the next person who interrupts a conspiracy rant with the question, “Who’s they?” Quigley’s stuff is no quick easy read either, to have the best of it distilled and served up is a real treat. Nice work young JC.
    Anyone have any cool links or book ideas toward John Dee, Frances Bacon and the whole Shakespeare conspiracy they would be greatly appreciated. I put that era as the beginning of the current work toward world enslavement, Rhodes was just another tool in the box.

  19. MEFF says:

    Thank you James, for reposting, it´s a grea great video and information.
    I hope you may have more news or it´s be great a second advance of the Great Reset, what´s really going on with the CBDC.


  20. Ethan Hunter says:

    Excellent presentation!

    I don’t think I ever saw this from the archives, so glad you reposted it!

    It inspired me to go buy Joe Plummer’s Tragedy and Hope 101 book, and am avidly reading it right now.

    Thanks for reminding us about the “kabuki theater” of modern politics.

    Episode 058 – Meet Carroll Quigley

    This is stellar!
    I really appreciate the outstanding visuals in this presentation.
    Thanks ya’ll!

  22. Fact Checker says:

    Very weird that James “embellishes” the quotation ending at 14:48, so as to attribute Quigley’s OWN belief (that partisan politics SHOULD be merely a theatrical production) to “the Eastern Establishment,” almost so as to suggest that Quigley was critical of the view.

    Quigley was NOT criticizing that view, nor was he objectively describing the philosophy of the “Eastern Establishment.” Quigley was stating his own opinion plainly, and adopting and subscribing to that of the Round Table network. James adds in attributional phrases that are clearly not present in the text, which is displayed right there on the screen. (And with which I am familiar from my own hardbound copy of the tome.)

    Also, viewers should keep in mind that G. Edward Griffin’s (wonderful) speech featured here may center on the theme of Quigley, but most of the stuff from the excerpt that is included here is strictly from Griffin, and not at all from Quigley. All the stuff about “Rings within Rings,” the “Society of the Elect,” and modeling the Round Table after Weisshaupt’s Illuminati is pure Griffin. Quigley said none of those things. (Quigley does however approvingly mention Rhodes’s “Circle of the Initiates,” which included Rothschild and Lord Balfour. Tragedy & Hope, p. 131.)

    In the end, Quigley was not “exposing” anything. He was touting, lauding, and explicating out of pride. Quigley was an “exoteric” advocate and apologist for the historical figures he was chronicling. The fact that he recruited Clinton into the network should show as much. He calls the Round Table societies a “high-minded group” of “gracious and cultured gentlemen,” and maintains that all the ill effects of their machinations throughout history are unfortunate effects of their “somewhat limited social experience.” (T&H, p. 954.) LOL WTF. Incompetence theory, in other words.

    CQ was furthermore a frothing proponent of Keynesianism (which he refers to as “Unorthodox Economics,” writing in 1965. Tragedy & Hope, p. 357-58.) Quigley also lauds destruction of “surplus goods” as necessary to solve the “deflationary gap,” etc. (T&H p. 547.) One would think James would take the occasion to distance himself from those financial-economic fallacies, since James frequently decries them throughout his work.

    James does indeed take a strange, sympathetic angle on Quigley here that is quite out of step with James otherwise consistent anarchism. Not sure what to make of the tone here.

    • hugo.c says:

      Radical! People’s opinions change over time!

      • Fact Checker says:

        That’s not the issue.

        James lays into Keynesianism in the latter half of this very piece, reading from a lengthy Corbett article (“Corbetticle”??) where he denounces all forms of inflationary financial policy and trickery. Yet he gives Quigley a free pass on it, so as to give the sense that Quigley is a libertarian/anarchist fellow traveller.

        There is an inexplicable slant here that has nothing to do with the possibility of evolving views, because James actually has to alter and distort the written passages he quotes, as I cite above, in order to achieve the slant.

  23. HomeRemedySupply says:

    Back in the old days, I remember the excitement I felt as I read about the actions of PNAC…

    PNAC – The Project for a New American Citizen
    A Project for the New American Citizen was initially started in response to the growing number of questions surrounding the attacks of September 11th, 2001.
    In the Spring of 2006, Matt Dayton and Jon Roberts, two students at the University of Texas, watched a film called �Loose Change 2nd Edition� on the internet. After an exhausting realization that the official story of 9/11 was in fact a lie, the two good friends decided to start a student organization dedicated to raising awareness and asking critical questions, not only about 9/11 but a number of other issues they would soon discover.

    Over the past year the organization has hosted a number of different events, protests, and even managed to capture the lead engineer of the NIST Report, John Gross, denying the existence of molten metal at the base of WTC 1,2 and 7….[Often Cited Video]

    IMAGES and bits of timeline here…

    SEARCH on 911blogger brings up some things about them…

  24. Arby says:

    The excellent Geopolitical Monitor? “India Shows COVID-19 Pandemic Far from Over” The propaganda is far from over.

  25. rshunter says:

    Is there a proper place to purchase the book Tragedy and Hope. Wanting to make sure it has been unaltered since its original printing.

  26. ingihamp says:

    Just found this
    And there
    “Wikipedia further says that this company was “[f]inanced by N M Rothschild & Sons” and “Rhodes succeeded over the next 17 years in buying up all the smaller diamond mining operations in the Kimberley area.”
    Lo and behold, they throw it at your face even at Wiki: Rhodes was a Rothschild front from the very beginning. They did not take over the lead of Rhodes’ organizations later in the process after his death, he created them with their money and thus leadership over him.

    • ingihamp says:

      “The son of a vicar, Rhodes was born at Netteswell House, Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire.
      A sickly child, he was sent to South Africa by his family when he was 17 years old in the hope that the climate might improve his health. He entered the diamond trade at Kimberley in 1871, when he was 18, and, thanks to funding from Rothschild & Co, began to systematically buy out and consolidate diamond mines. Over the next two decades he gained near-complete domination of the world diamond market, forming a massive monopoly.”
