Meet the companies fighting to save New World Order in the Age of Trump
[World Tribune] When one thinks of the Council on Foreign Relations, images of a powerful, moneyed and thoroughly connected edifice come to mind. So it’s a bit surprising to discover that this group that so epitomizes well-heeled globalism depends upon funding by rich foundations and corporate donations like so many smaller activist organizations do.
Alongside well-known leftist globalist foundations such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation and yes, of course, George Soros’s Open Society Foundations, a "grateful" CFR acknowledges the companies that "have provided support for specific projects and initiatives" undertaken by the group. CFR donor lists for 2016-17 and 2017-18 reveal that certain corporations sponsor specific programs dedicated to furthering the organization’s globalist and anti-nationalist agenda.
James M. Lindsay is a senior vice president at CFR who "oversees the work of the more than six dozen fellows in the David Rockefeller Studies Program." Globalization and Politics and Government are listed among his subjects of "expertise."
