The true purposes of the 1st Boer War (run by Cecil Rhodes, 1880-1881), and the 2nd Boer War (run by Rhodes disciple Viscount Alfred Milner, 1899-1902) were for the British to seize control over the vast mining resources of West Africa from Egypt to Cape Town, and to drive out their business and political competition from Afrikaners of the Dutch East India Company, Germans, French and Portuguese.
To facilitate this control of African resources, especially diamonds and gold, bankers N.M. Rothschild & Sons funded De Beers Consolidated Mining established by Cecil Rhodes on Mar. 12, 1888.
To justify this naked white racist British hegemony, Rhodes penned his “Manifesto” for Anglo-American English-Speaking dominance in the world through a secret society. He called for a reorganized Imperial British Empire run by corporations in English-speaking brotherhood with their American oligarch robber barons like Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, DuPont and Carnegie. Rhodes instructed them to use secrecy and rapacious Jesuit-style ruthless politics.
They were dedicated to establishing a one-world government run either from London or New York, Rhodes didn’t care, in fact, he appeared to prefer setting it up in America which would avoid some of the baggage of Empire, while continuing to enjoy the Privy Council’s protection by the King’s Court.
Rhodes was adamant that America should return to the British white supremacist English-speaking fold and told his followers this should happen no matter the cost. To this end he set up Rhodes Scholarships to recruit and train his future Anglophile one-world government leaders.
Rhodes had dedicated followers, like Sir Harry Brittain, Viscount Alfred Milner, Sir John Buchan, Sir Edward Levy-Lawson (Lord Burnham), N.M. Rothschild and Lord Northcliffe, among others.
Rhodes’ Round Table was essentially the forerunner of the Pilgrims Society which picked up the banner upon his death in 1902. Viscount Alfred Milner carried on a parallel entity called the Round Table Movement as well.
On Mar. 26, 1902, Cecil Rhodes died, but not before he had set up and funded his Rhodes Scholarships with De Beers money for recruiting English-Speaking students to his white supremacist Anglo-American one-world Manifesto.
After the death of Cecil Rhodes, the inner core of his Round Table secret society fell under the control of Lord Alfred Milner, Governor-General and High Commissioner of South Africa. Management of the Rhodes Scholarships was a key task. “As director of a number of public banks and as corporate precursor of England’s Midland Bank, he became one of the greatest political and financial powers in the world. Milner recruited into his secret society a group of young men chiefly from Oxford and Toynbee Hall.” (G. Edward Griffin, The Creature From Jekyll Island).
ON JUL. 16, 1902, THE PILGRIMS SOCIETY WAS FORMED. SIR HARRY BRITTAIN WAS NAMED CHAIRMAN. GENERAL LORD FREDERICK ROBERTS (2ND BOER CONCENTRATION CAMP FOUNDER) WAS NAMED PRESIDENT.
Other founding members were Lord Burnham (Edward Levy-Lawson), owner of The Daily Telegraph; Burnham’s son Harry Levy-Lawson; Lord Northcliffe, owner of The Daily Mail, The Times, The Daily Mirror, Sunday Dispatch, Observer, The Sunday Times, The Children’s Encyclopedia and Harmsworth’s Universal Encyclopedia.
The Pilgrims first set up in London, got organized, then started their New York chapter on January 13, 1903. They made the British and American memberships reciprocal, meaning if you were a member in Britain, you were automatically an American member without additional membership requirements.
Only self-anointed elitists could join or be patrons of the Pilgrims Society, and join they did. J.P. Morgan, Jacob Astor, John D. Rockefeller, Prescott Bush, Andrew Carnegie, Rothschild, Viscount Alfred Milner, Lord Burnham, Lord Edward Levy-Lawson, His Majesty Edward VII (Windsor), Sir Stewart Menzies, H.G. Wells, J.P. Morgan, Thomas W. Lamont, Thomas J. Watson (IBM), Baring, Rockefellers, Winston Churchill, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Neville Chamberlain, Forbes, Knights of Malta, Rudyard Kipling, as well as many viscounts, dukes, earls, barons, lords and knights, etc.
By 1909, the Pilgrims Society was well organized in both Britain and America. On the surface, they gathered innocently for dinners and social events. Often times the British monarch would attend or send his greetings. However, the devil is in this detail. Over drinks and cigars, they plotted in secret how best to carry out the Cecil Rhodes vision of an Anglophile world government.
Their membership by 1909 included Astor, Morgan, Chase, Carnegie, Rothschild, Chamberlain, Churchill, Milner, Heinz, Schiff, Buchan, Burnham, Levy-Lawson, Forbes, Northcliffe, Rockefeller, Smuts, Kennedy, Dupont, Roberts, Curzon, Dillon, Vanderbilt, Mark Twain, Taft, Lamont, Windsor, etc.
On Jun. 05, 1909, Pilgrim founders Sir Harry Brittain and Lord Burnham (Sir Edward Levy-Lawson) organized a 650-person Imperial Press Conference, at Shepherds Bush, White City, in London’s West End.
The 1909 conference site is the current home of BBC TV Centre. The themes of the conference were “Parliament of the Press” and “The Evolution of Journalism Etcetera.”
Speaker after speaker extolled the virtues of British imperialism, the supremacy of the white race to control the world, the right of the white race to organize the world and its resources, and most notably, the imperative that newspapers CREATE public opinion as the only way to have lasting peace.
The delegates were given three documents totaling over 1,271 pages—all or mostly all underwritten by the big pharmaceutical and chemical giant Burroughs Wellcome.
Behind the scenes, Brittain, Burnham, Milner, Buchan and others were meeting with Prime Minister Asquith and Churchill (president of the Board of Trade, then Home Secretary, then First Lord of the Admiralty).
These men were secretly plotting how newspapermen were the best positioned around the Empire to keep the Prime Minister supplied with accurate intelligence at now wireless speeds.
The Conference ended on Saturday, Jun. 26, 1909. Just prior to the close of the conference.
On Jun. 23, 1909, selected delegates met to form the Empire Press Union which was to be a “permanent body” to carry forward the work of the Conference. It was organized and staffed by Pilgrims Society members. Lord Burnham (Edward Levy-Lawson) its first president.
On Jun. 26, 1909, the Imperial Press Conference ended having formed the Empire Press Union to carry forward their vision to create public opinion.
On Jul. 29, 1909, just three days later, Prime Minister Asquith informed Parliament that he was going to form three intelligence sub committees focused on Home Defence (MI5), Colonial Defence (MI6) and Information Archiving (GC&CS, renamed GCHQ).
Under the secret Imperial, English-Speaking, white supremacist, corporatist guiding hand of the Pilgrims Societies of Britain and the United States, the Empire Press Union (later renamed the Commonwealth Press Union, now CPU Trust) became the primary recruiting and organizing vehicle for British MI5, MI6 & GCHQ. It was a perfect cover for Anglo-American spies now called “Five Eyes” following the Mar. 05, 1946 intelligence sharing agreement where America essentially allow Britain full access to almost all intelligence.
In short, the Imperial Press Conference, 1909 was the front for a spy recruiting effort by Imperial Britain to staff its newly forming intelligence agencies with newspaper spies from all over the Empire. This recruitment included the London correspondents for American newspapers.
Newspapers and media were weaponized into tools of pure propaganda for the Pilgrim Society worldwide.
The Empire Press Union’s fingerprint on the BBC, RCA and NBC is unmistakable.
The BBC predates RCA and NBC and set the standard for how radio, TV (and now Internet) would be operated as pure media-spy intelligence that would be sold to the British and American Governments if they followed their quid pro quo wishes.
On Oct. 18, 1922, the British Broadcasting Company (BBC) incorporated. Telegraphing the control of its formation by the Anglo-America Pilgrims Society, six British and American companies were given equal numbers of shares.
These companies were spying equally for Britain and America by loyal Pilgrims Society members who were carrying forward the Rhodes Manifesto of British imperial corporatism and white supremacy.
Media runs the intelligence agencies. The Pilgrims Society controls the media.
Chris - The Pilgrims Society, Club of Rome, CFR, Trilateral Commission, etc. are overwhelmingly white (or Zionists who claim to be Jewish). It's their "white supremacy" that matters, not us peons. They push the white supremacy, people of color, LGBTQ and so on to the sheeple, so we remain divided and fighting among ourselves.
Much like the Rothschilds and their agents in the Chilean government of the day stole the Bolivian coast line and only ocean port/access. The petrol chemical rich Atacama desert and Altiplano along with putting another nail in the revival of the Bolivarian revolution as their motivations.
