Who was he: Cecil Rhodes is best known today for the "world's oldest and most prestigious international graduate scholarship," the Rhodes Scholarships, which are awarded annually by the Rhodes Trust; but Rhodes's life was about far more than his famous scholarship. Rhodes's vision for a worldwide Anglo-American Empire is shared today by the power elite, albeit with some modern-day tweaks and adjustments. In other words, Cecil Rhodes helped establish modern Money Power.
Rhodes was a mining magnate, businessman and politician in South Africa. Together with Rothschild interests, and through De Beers, Rhodes cornered the market on diamonds, at one time marketing 90 percent of all the new stones in the world. Rhodes was a believer in the British Empire and imperialism and his goal of establishing a new world order and global governance to be ruled by the Anglo-American power elites remains an active goal today. Rhodes helped start the Boer Wars for resources, which is also where concentration camps for innocent civilians were first used. Rhodes also founded the very prosperous state of Rhodesia which later in the 1970s was known as the "bread basket" of Africa but today is better known as a failed state.
Rhodes went back and forth between Africa and Oriel College at Oxford University where Rhodes received his degree and also became a lifelong Freemason at the Apollo University Lodge. In this fraternity Rhodes developed the idea for his own secret society, which would work to bring the entire world under British control. Rhodes worked tirelessly toward this end in advancing British Empire interests in Africa, promoting mercantilism and lebensraum. In his will, Rhodes also opened up Rhodes Scholarships to Germans and Americans.
The will and testament stated when speaking of the British, "I contend that we are the first race in the world and that the more of the world we inhabit the better it is for the human race." Furthermore, Rhodes believed that eventually Great Britain, the USA and Germany could work together to dominate the rest of the world and that the Anglo-Saxon race was destined for greatness.
The goal was a new world order, an Anglo-American control and occupation of "the entire Continent of Africa, the Holy Land, the Valley of the Euphrates, the Islands of Cyprus and Candia, the whole of South America, the Islands of the Pacific not heretofore possessed by Great Britain, the whole of the Malay Archipelago, the seaboard of China and Japan, the ultimate recovery of the United States of America as an integral part of the British Empire."
To this end, the will and estate assets of the Rhodes estate, which was administered by Nathan Rothschild, established the Rhodes Scholarships in 1902. The trust has annointed over 7,000 Rhodes Scholars and claims the awards are granted on the basis of strength of character and academic achievement.
The Rhodes Scholarships allow recipient students to be educated, vetted and introduced to the Anglo-American power elites who then invite them to serve in leadership positions and enter the fast-track program to wealth and success. In return, these rising young men and women are only asked for loyalty and to share the global governance goals of the group, which will make them powerful and successful.
There is no secret or rigid hierarchy in the Anglo-American axis or new world order, but rather these individuals know the broad goals and agendas of their employers and the think tanks that research and suggest solutions to world problems – both real and contrived. To get ahead, each scholarship recipient simply advances the agenda through their best efforts, knowing doors will open and advancement will take place. A few modern Rhodes Scholars include Russ Feingold, Bill Clinton, General Wesley Clark, Bill Bradley, Larry Pressler, David Souter, Kris Kristofferson and George Stephanopoulos.
Background: Cecil John Rhodes was born on July 5th, 1853 in Hertfordshire, England and as a sickly teenager his parents sent him to Natal, South Africa hoping the climate would improve his health. Beginning in 1871, Rhodes and his brother, financed by N.M. Rothschild & Sons, spent the following 17 years creating a monopoly of the world's diamond industry and in 1889 through a strategic partnership with the Diamond Syndicate the monopoly was completed. This monopoly control syndicate still continues today.
Cecil Rhodes was laid to rest in 1902 in Southern Rhodesia, which was named after him. Black racism and dictatorial control eventually doomed the economic success of Rhodesia and the region is better known today as the lifeless nation of Zimbabwe, where impoverished citizens search in the dirt for roots to eat and roll wheelbarrows of worthless money through towns.
