The Iron Mountain Conspiracy


When you speak about a shadow government, you have to tread lightly since no one can really pinpoint who is in the background dictating policy. We always tend to think of some noir-type of control, with shadowy figures in smoke-filled rooms meeting somewhere in Switzerland. While the romanticism can entertain the conspiracy minded, the shadow government conducts it’s business openly with a few of the same players.

This way there can be meetings behind closed doors to discuss policies and ideas that are quite simply enabling continuity of world government instead of sovereign government that we believe we are a part of.

The Oliver Stone film ‘JFK’ suggests that a conspiracy involving criminal elements of our government, the CIA, the FBI, perhaps people associated with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, all in the service of the military-industrial complex that President Eisenhower warned us about, might have conspired to kill John F. Kennedy because he was going to sharply change the direction of American foreign policy.

The people considered Kennedy a man of peace; however, a full and lasting peace achieved through peaceful means was a red flag for those who pocketed money from the business of war.

In terms of the military-industrial interests, there had to be a demand for their products and there had to be wars or ‘police actions‘ for those products to be bought and sold. Thus, preparation for warfare and some form of warfare had to continue. Mind you, all of these proposed wars had to be done while carefully avoiding a nuclear exchange.

That was a dilemma. However, for those who were making decisions in the background, the new direction was simple: it was merely a old idea made new again. It was the ideal of a dawn of a new age, a world government that would enforce new international and worldwide law with a newly formed militarized police force that would put all of those great war mechanisms to good use.

Even before the end of World War II, the newly structured confrontation between the world of Communism and the West was the product of ex-Nazis who made deals with American intelligence in order to avoid hanging in The Hague. Nazi Intelligence operatives and scientists were brought to the United States in exchange for information they allegedly had about Russian plans to declare war on the United States.

One Nazi in particular was Reinhard Gehlen, Hitler’s master spy who had built up an intelligence network in the Soviet Union. “Gehlen inflates Soviet military capabilities at a time when Russia is still rebuilding its devastated society, in order to inflate his own importance to the Americans (who might otherwise punish him). In 1948, Gehlen almost convinces the Americans that war is imminent, and the West should make a preemptive strike,” writes Steve Kangas.

This alone was the reason the United States employed enormous intelligence agencies like the CIA that had the power, invisibly, to wage underground warfare, economic as well as military, anywhere – including methods of warfare never before imagined. These conflicts had to be tactically designed as to not trigger nuclear mutually assured destruction or else tremendous loss of life could occur, and there was always the much-desired pocketing of trillions of dollars made in the manufacturing of war equipment.

It was at this time that the plans for the New World Order were being proposed.

The New World Order had been the vision of the Nazis and most of what they envisioned was a golden age of peace after a long fought war to keep rogue nations in a collective and controlled under one government.

A world government.

During World War II and almost two decades after, there were American elitists that shared many of the views of the Nazis. Many of them were champions of a New World Order. CIA director Allen Dulles was one of the chief enablers of Nazi intelligence within the CIA.

Earlier, when Dulles was a leading diplomat and spy, he teamed up with his brother, John Foster Dulles, a Wall Street insider, and created a financial-intelligence apparatus to assist the Nazis. So Dulles had long-standing, friendly relations with Nazis.

Another family that had a long history with the Dulles family was the Prescott Bush family. Both were powerful families that held many beliefs in common. Both families hated Franklin Roosevelt’s presidency to the point of organizing a coup to get him out of office.

They were both opposed to the United States entry into World War II; they both invested in Hitler’s war effort against the United States, Both families were responsible for the grooming of Richard Nixon to try and beat Kennedy for President. Both had mutual financial and political involvement in the attempt to overthrow Fidel Castro in Cuba in the Bay of Pigs fiasco.

In 1961, the Kennedy administration ordered a “Top Secret” study to determine what problems the United States would face if the world moved from an era of war to a golden age of peace.

Wikipedia writes: “After the Bay of Pigs, Kennedy had fired CIA director Allen W. Dulles, Deputy Director Charles P. Cabell, and Deputy Director Richard Bissell, and turned his attention towards Vietnam. Kennedy had also stripped the CIA of responsibility for paramilitary operations like the Bay of Pigs and turned them over to the U.S. Department of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which, as Commander in Chief, Kennedy could more directly control.

By 1962 proposals to spark war were brought forward to the President for review. One such document was the Operation Northwoods document.

Operation Northwoods was simply a document that featured a number of proposed false flag operations where military intelligence and the CIA would attack American citizens and then blame the attacks on Cuba. Kennedy rejected the proposals.

Now here is where we delve into conspiracy territory.

By 1963, it was proposed that there needed to be a committee that would meet in secret to come up with alternatives to war, without bankrupting the military industrial complex. This was once again part of the 1961 proposal to rein in the Communists and go into an era of peace with them.

By 1963, the selection of specialists had been made.

This study group consisted of 15 experts in various academic disciplines who were selected for their expertise in their various fields. The first and last meetings were in an underground nuclear survival retreat called Iron Mountain.

In ‘Iron Mountain; A Hoax or Betrayal?‘, Paula Demers writes: “In 1963, the same year as the selection of specialists for this “Top Secret” study, President John F. Kennedy made an astounding statement. On November 13, while speaking at Columbus University, Pres. Kennedy stated, “The high office of the President of the United States of America has been used to foment a plot to destroy America’s freedom, and before I leave office, I must inform the citizens of their plight! Ten days later, President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed.

The Iron Mountain report was submitted to President Johnson in 1966. Johnson claimed that the plans that were discussed in the report would take a generation and a half to fully implement. The plan was abandoned.

The “Report from Iron Mountain” was leaked to the mainstream press in 1967. It argued that though world peace was a nice idea, the economy of war was such a vital part of global stability, it was difficult to come up with substitutes.

The report was literally a blueprint of proposed manufactured crises that the government could employ during peace time in order to keep the war and military busy and the people demanding for protection from threats. The report claimed that a gradual implementation of such crises would guarantee the need for basic social controls. There are those who believe that the proposals in the report have been employed for 45 years conditioning the American people for acceptance of a New World Order.

The very same New World Order supported and championed by the Dulles and Bush families.

The report detailed ways to create or manufacture crises that could be substitutes for war, literally a way to keep the military in business due to public demand over fear of being harmed or killed.

The report actually admits that war or crisis is a “general social release.” According to the report:

It provides ‘the release and redistribution of undifferentiated tensions’. In other words it is a type of therapy. It is a ‘generational stabilizer’ that enables the “deteriorating older generation” to “maintain control of the younger, destroying it if necessary’. It clears ideology. It is a basis for international understanding. However, there are noted substitutions for war, that when gradually brought into society can have the same effect.

This is pointed out as a “silent weapon” strategy which in turn creates a form of war that has no exchange of gunfire or bombs.

According to the report, one of the silent weapons that a government can use on its people is a complete destabilization of the economy.

Economic surrogates for war must meet principal criteria. They must be “wasteful,” in the common sense of the word, and they must operate outside the normal supply-demand system.” — Report from Iron Mountain

This leads to a failure of government social programs and could create a social war that has to be kept from escalating by a militarized police force.

In a speech given in July of 2008, Barack Obama stated that America could not continue to rely on the military in order to achieve the national security objectives his administration had set. He spoke of a civilian national security force that’s “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.

Now we see a police force in America that is being gradually militarized. It is now normal to see police agencies around the country receive combat gear and military armored vehicles with immense firepower capabilities.

The Report from Iron Mountain also proposes that the United States be disarmed and it will be carried out in three stages. Internal security forces provided by the United Nations will honor and enforce a treaty that will be signed where guns must be surrendered by citizens in order to maintain peace.

The Iron Mountain report also states that in order for this to happen there will also have to be a focus on religious authority and their ability to convince their flocks to follow the law. However, there is also a section that states that if the religious authorities’ rebel there would have to be a way to expose religious organizations as corrupt and this way there would be no agonizing over the moral obligations of a government to religious freedom.

The solution of today’s problems requires an approach which is ruthlessly candid, with no agonizing over religious, moral or cultural values.” — Intelligence Operations Research — (Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars)

Another alternative to war, and a crisis that could spark a demand for government protection and unity with a World Government would be a manufactured “space menace.”

It has been hotly argued that such a menace would offer the “last, best hope of peace,“ by uniting mankind against the danger of destruction by “creatures” from other planets or from outer space. Experiments have been proposed to test the credibility of an out-of-our-world invasion threat; it is possible that a few of the more difficult-to-explain “flying saucer” incidents of recent years were in fact early experiments of this kind.

If so, they could hardly have been judged encouraging. We anticipate no difficulties in making a “need” for a giant super space program credible for economic purposes, even were there not ample precedent; extending it, for political purposes, to include features unfortunately associated with science fiction would obviously be a more dubious undertaking.” – Report from Iron Mountain

Finally, another silent weapon in the quiver for government is an environmental doomsday scenario according to the report.

Nevertheless, an effective political substitute for war would require “alternate enemies,” some of which might seem equally far- fetched in the context of the current war system. It may be, for instance, that gross pollution of the environment can eventually replace the possibility of mass destruction by nuclear weapons as the principal apparent threat to the survival of the species.

Poisoning of the air, and of the principal sources of food and water supply, is already well advanced, and at first glance would seem promising in this respect; it constitutes a threat that can be dealt with only through social organization and political power.

But from present indications it will be a generation to a generation and a half before environmental pollution, however severe, will be sufficiently menacing, on a global scale, to offer a possible basis for a solution.”—Report from Iron Mountain

Report from Iron Mountain was on the New York Times bestseller list and was translated into fifteen different languages. Controversy exists concerning whether the book is the result of a hoax authored by Leonard Lewin or the real result of a secret government panel.

From Wikipedia’s entry on The Report from Iron Mountain:

U.S. News & World Report claimed in its November 20, 1967 issue to have confirmation of the reality of the report from an unnamed government official, who added that when President Johnson read the report, he ‘hit the roof’ and ordered it to be suppressed for all time. Additionally, sources were said to have revealed that orders were sent to U.S. embassies, instructing them to emphasize that the book had no relation to U.S. Government policy.

On November 26, 1976, the report was reviewed in the book section of the Washington Post by Herschel McLandress, which was the pen name for Harvard professor John Kenneth Galbraith. Galbraith, who also had been a member of the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations), said that he knew firsthand of the report’s authenticity because he had been invited to participate in it. Although he was unable to be part of the official group, he was consulted from time to time and had been asked to keep the project a secret. Furthermore, while he doubted the wisdom of letting the public know about the report, he agreed totally with its conclusions.

However, there is a discrepancy and that is the New York Times reported that the Report on Iron Mountain was a clever hoax and should not be believed. However if it is a hoax then it most certainly feels like it is real because of what is happening today.

Keep in mind that both Kennedy and Johnson allegedly knew of the report and several other reports that were submitted as alternatives to war, alternatives that would be manufactured over time. Johnson believed that it would take at least a generation and a half to have full impact on the people.

Statistically, a generation is about 30 years. Add another 15 for the half and you get 45 years. The proposal was first created in 1961. Johnson received in 1966 and the public was aware of the report in 1967.

Proposals of a gradual bankrupting of the system, a three-stage disarming of the world, a manufactured environmental doomsday and the announcement of a “space menace” are all part of our lives today. It has been in our literature, our news stories, it is deeply rooted into the mass consciousness.

Kennedy rejected those proposals. He then spoke of the secret societal plans for a world government. He was assassinated in 1963.

If the proposals were taken seriously by world government advocates, and with 45 years to program the nation for these proposals to work, we can speculate that these manufactured crises are with us today – and that what was spoken of in ‘Iron Mountain’ a generation and a half ago is being used against us now.

Some have been fulfilled while others are still awaiting their fulfillment.
