Bill Clinton’s Mentor Carroll Quigley Reveals Fraud of the ‘Two Party System’

“In American politics we have several parties included under the blanket words “Democratic” and “Republican.” In oversimplified terms, as I have said, were the party of the middle class, and the Democrats were the party of the fringes. Both of these were subdivided, each with a Congressional and a National Party wing.

The Republican Congressional Party (representing localism) was much further to the right than the National Republican Party, and as such was closer to the petty-bourgeois than to the upper-middle class outlook. The Democratic Congressional party was much more clearly of the fringes and minorities (and thus often further to the Left) than the Democrat National Party.

The party machinery in each case was in Congressional party control during the intervals between the quadrennial presidential elections, but, in order to win these elections, each had to call into existence, in presidential election years, its shadowy National Party. This meant that the Republicans had to appear to move to the Left, closer to the Center, usually moving to the Right.

As a result, the National parties and their presidential candidates, with the Eastern Establishment assiduously fostering the process being the scenes, moved closer together and nearly met in the center with almost identical candidates and platforms, although the process was concealed, as much as possible, by the revival of obsolescent or meaningless war cries and slogans (often going back to the Civil War).

As soon as the presidential election was over, the two National parties vanished, and party controls fell back into the hands of the two Congressional parties, leaving the President in a precarious position between the two Congressional parties, neither of which was very close to the brief National coalition that had elected him.

The chief problem of American political life for a long time had been to make the two Congressional parties more national and international.

The argument of two parties should represent opposed ideas and policies, one perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinate and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. The policies that are vital and necessary for America are no longer subjects of significant disagreement, but are disputable only in details of procedure, priority, or method.”

From Wikipedia:

Quigley was born in Boston, and attended Harvard University, where he studied history and earned B.A, M.A., and Ph.D. degrees. He taught at Princeton University, and then at Harvard, and then at the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University from 1941 to 1976.

From 1941 until 1969, he taught a two-semester course at Georgetown on the development of civilizations. According to the obituary in the Washington Star, many alumni of Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service asserted that this was “the most influential course in their undergraduate careers”

In addition to his academic work, Quigley served as a consultant to the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Navy, the Smithsonian Institution, and the House Select Committee on Astronautics and Space Exploration in the 1950s.

In his freshman year in the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown, future U.S. President Bill Clinton took Quigley’s course, receiving a ‘B’ as his final grade in both semesters. Clinton named Quigley as an important influence on his aspirations and political philosophy in 1991, when launching his presidential campaign in a speech at Georgetown.

Former UN official ‘not sure’ if 9/11 was created to justify war in the Middle East

Under The Radar Media

In an interview given to Arab Voices, a Pacifica radio program, anti-war activist Denis Halliday was on to discuss President Obama’s announcement on the U.S. withdrawal of some of its troops from occupied Iraq.  Halliday is a former UN Assistant Secretary General, and former UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq (1997-1998).  He resigned after a 34 year career with the UN to free himself of the constraints imposed on him and thereby speak out publicly on the terrible impact of UN economic sanctions on the people of Iraq.

At 49m55s into the interview, Halliday was posed with a question on whether American citizens, given the nation’s current Anti-Muslim hysteria and climate of fear, coupled with the desire to invade Iran should be concerned about the possibility of a false flag terror attack which could be used as another pretext for war.

Halliday anknowledged that Pearl Harbor was invented, as well as used as a pretext for the US to enter World War II, yet admitted that he was not so sure if he believed that 9/11 was the same type of event. Completely sidestepping the issue of a terror attack being used as a pretext to attack Iran, Halliday admitted he was well aware that people doubted the official story of 9/11, yet he could not wrap his mind around the concept that 9/11 could be anything other than Muslim retaliation against US military aggression.

Surprisingly, he seemed to blame 9/11 on Muslim anti-American sentiment over the military presence in Saudi Arabia. The host of Arab Voices, Said, countered that US foreign policy in the Middle East could not have been a justification for the 9/11 attacks as an act made in the name of Islam, since the killing of a human is forbidden according to the Quran.

It is almost unimaginable that someone with the breadth of knowledge of history and current events that Mr. Halliday holds could still be laboring under the delusion of 19 Muslim hijackers with the intent of committing Jihad as being the real culprits of the 9/11 staged media terror event. One must wonder if Mr. Halliday simply hasn’t bothered to review the extensive and exaustive 9/11 research that is easily available, or if he is aware of it but is worried about the stigma of being labeled a “conspiracy theorist,” or worse.

Mr. Halliday’s willingness  to promote the government storyline is consistent with the other left leaning individuals and media outlet’s efforts to stifle  any unapproved debate on 9/11 and US foreign policy.  Liberal funny man John Stewart  of the Daily Show recently took a swipe at anyone doubting the 9/11 Commission’s findings as he promoted his ‘Rally to Restore Sanity’.

Dr. Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff from the non-profit national media watchdog group Project Censored have recently been blackballed by the left-leaning Minuteman Media and Washington think tank  The Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) for suggesting “that the events of September 11th have all the trappings of a potential state crime against democracy.”  Project Censored have long been well receieved by the liberal establishment, and has put its reputation on the line for daring to challenge the 9/11 Commission’s findings, and for promoting the controlled demolition theory of World Trade Centers 1, 2 and 7.

David Ray Griffin’s excellent article Left-Leaning Despisers of the 9/11 Truth Movement documents the phenomenon of left-leaning anti-war activists such as Mr. Halliday opposing the war, yet neglecting the very obvious reasons and machinations that got the US into these Middle East quagmires:

The Fear of Being Discredited

You are certainly right to fear that the left would be discredited by being aligned with a conspiracy theory that is scientifically unsupportable and even absurd. It is hard to imagine, however, what could discredit the left more than having many of its recognized leaders endorsing the Bush-Cheney administration’s 9/11 conspiracy theory, especially at a time when more and more scientists and people in relevant professions are pointing out its absurdities.

The Fear of Being Distracted

The second fear – that the focus on a false conspiracy theory has been distracting many people from more important matters – is equally valid. But this fear has been directed toward the wrong conspiracy theory. Nothing has distracted the United States and its allies from issues such as global apartheid, the ecological crisis, nuclear proliferation, and corporate power more than the “war on terror” – with its huge operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, its incessant terror alerts and stories of attacks prevented, and its depletion of our national treasuries. Lying at the root of this so-called war on terror, both historically and as present justification, is the official account of 9/11. So it is, as I wrote in response to Cockburn in Le Monde Diplomatique three years go, “The Truly Distracting 9/11 Conspiracy Theory.”

I recently completed a 15-city tour, presenting a lecture entitled “Is the War in Afghanistan Justified by 9/11?” My hope was that, by providing clear evidence that it is not – because the official account of 9/11 is false from beginning to end – “the 9/11 Truth Movement and more traditional Peace and Anti-War groups [would] be able to combine forces to oppose this illegal and immoral war.” I have written the present essay with the same hope.

President Barack Obama’s recent bizarre statement about “absorbing a terror attack”, along with Senator Lindsey Graham’s outrageous assertions that “there’s going to be an attack,” and “we have to get hit again,” have spurred  a false debate on the political left and the right as the mainstream media/banking/military complex appears to be conditioning the public for a host of horrible events.
