Who was he: Gary Allen was a conservative journalist certainly best known and remembered for his book, None Dare Call It Conspiracy, which was co-authored by Larry Abraham, a friend of several Daily Bell editors. The book was a bestseller in 1972, selling over five million copies during the 1972 election and millions since that time. Allen's book introduced many Americans to the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission and their plans for a new world order.
Gary Allen's hypothesis is basically that these organizations are front groups for the banking and monetary elites we now describe as the Anglo-American Axis. This is a power elite of very wealthy families out to achieve permanent global governance. We hope many of you will read his somewhat dated book and take advantage of the extensive research to learn more about the real enemies of freedom and free markets in combination with what we provide today at The Daily Bell.
Background: Gary Allen was born on August 2, 1936 and after high school Allen majored in history at Stanford University and also attended California State University. Allen was very active in the John Birch Society, often acting as its spokesman; he also contributed as a valued member of their American Opinion Speaker's Bureau.
In addition, Allen wrote speeches for presidential candidate George Wallace and many editorials for the American Opinion magazine and Conservative Digest. Allen's major accomplishment was writing a number of well-read books on the elites and their goal of establishing a new world order.
In his bestselling book, None Dare Call It Conspiracy, even the title attempted to counter the establishment media propaganda to the effect that there were no secret conspiracies and that even suggesting one existed was beyond the boundary of responsible journalism.
The book made four important points, which have since been vindicated by political, economic and monetary events since 1972. First, Allen suggested that the political/economic system of the West (remember, at the time the world was divided between communism and democracy) was a conspiracy that began in the early 20th century with the progressive era. We believe the Anglo-American Axis is far older than this.
Second, Allen believed one of their major goals was to create an income tax system to steal money from the lower and middle classes. While this is correct, today the value added tax (VAT) and many other taxes and fees are used to get even more wealth.
Third, the conspiracy desired to establish a central bank like the Federal Reserve System but to hide the ownership and beneficiaries of its actions. Here we also agree with Allen but suggest the battle to create the bank began after the death of the Articles of Confederation and moved to center stage as a result of the manufactured Civil War.
Fourth, Gary Allen said they wanted to allow the central bank to hold the national debt and to expand the national debt through wars and conflicts. If you look at Washington's national debt explosion from 1972 until today, they certainly have met their objectives.
Allen postulated a rigid, tight, centralized control structure. However, there are other interpretations. In fact, the elites may operate via competing factions and a decentralized hierarchy where some current events and elite actions are dictated from above.
What is indisputable is that the progress of the Anglo Power Elite depends in large part on secrecy and on the implementation of fear-based dominant social themes used to control the expanding populace and to further consolidate wealth and power. These themes are promoted through an intricate array of think tanks, universities and government organizations that first present the concept or problem and then provide authoritarian solutions.
The elites do the same thing with major investments such as the stock and bond markets and real estate where the investing public follow financial themes promoted by Wall Street. When the limit of gullible investors is reached, the markets fall and the monetary elites are usually on the other side of the transaction thus making profits on both sides of the investment market. When they are wrong or events impact their timing or plans, even losing situations are now covered by government bailouts.
An interesting aside on Gary Allen is although Allen died young from complications of diabetes at age 50 on November 29, 1986, his interest in politics is carried on by a son. One of Gary Allen's children is Michael Allen, born in 1964 and one of the most followed political journalists and reporters in Washington, DC. Michael Allen is the chief political reporter for Politico and everyone in politics from the left to the right reads his daily blog first thing every morning. Unlike his dad, a political outsider, Michael has become the ultimate reporter for politics and power on the inside of Washington. Michael Allen claims to have never read any of his father's books or writings.
Gary Allen was a true American patriot and everyone in the freedom movement owes him a debt of thanks for his efforts and the many books he wrote about those who would enslave and control the world. At the time, Allen was forced to rely on the print media and an almost total blackout of his work by the mainstream media establishment except when they sought to criticize his research and ideas. We applaud Gary Allen's work.
