We now have documented evidence that the Civil War, Spanish-American War, WWI, the Bolshevik Revolution, WWII, the Korean War and the War in Vietnam were all based on lies and fraud orchestrated and managed by people whose names few would recognize … and so the history we thought we knew is just not so.
There are many important books –and of course I would never claim I know them all– but a few major works provided me a peek over the walled garden in which I lived most of my life. These represent a few milestones in my journey to better understand the world into which I was born and provided me actual facts that cut deeply against the mythology promulgated 24X7 from womb to tomb by the propaganda organs of our existing power structure. Unfortunately these propaganda organs include our public schools, our news and entertainment media, our universities, tax-exempt foundations and our government. Most believe these myths and so repeat them. These common myths have now become the bedrock of our general understanding and collective agreement of how the world works. In short, these myths have become our generally accepted and agreed-to reality. A reality based not in fact but in deception, fraud, obfuscation and lies. So who would do such a thing? And how could so few men keep this information hidden for so long? Surely someone would have discovered these facts and told the world, right? Well they did tell the world but few have the time or interest to pay attention while the generally promulgated myths have their many benefactors.
So what to do? Spread knowledge based on sourced, documented fact.
Most people don’t have time, energy or interest to read Quigley’s academic 1,348 page ‘Tragedy and Hope’ or his 354 page ‘Anglo-American Establishment’ or the many other books by Sutton, Griffin, Perloff, etc.… to get their own front row seat to the workings of real power on the world stage, and so are denied their real history or an understanding of how it was managed.
Recognizing the problem of the large size and difficulty of these great books, Joseph Plummer invested many years of his life distilling these great works into two small easily approachable books: ‘Tragedy & Hope 101’ and ‘Dishonest Money’ which are now available to anyone.
For my part, I offered to give Plummer’s two books away for free (including the S&H) to any who would promise to read them. I am proud to say, I have given away 11 sets of these excellent books. I’m planting good, clean, healthy, honest seeds which may take years to germinate, but am hoping this butterfly wing flapping in the wind of this small town in Texas will become a tsunami washing away some of the evil which has enslaved the minds of so many; replacing false data with real data.

Interview 1158 – Joe Plummer Teaches Tragedy and Hope 101
Clocking in at 1300 pages of small print text, Carroll Quigley’s seminal work, Tragedy and Hope, is an intimidating and weighty tome. Today we talk to Joe Plummer of JoePlummer.com about his guide to Quigley’s massive book. Available as a free e-book or as a paperback or kindle purchase and dubbed Tragedy and Hope 101, Plummer’s guide condenses, summarizes, explains and footnotes the highlights and lowlights of the text so you can understand the nature of the conspiratorial network that Quigley exposed and why this information is so important. – The Corbett Report
Please take time to listen to this outstanding speech by renowned Federal Reserve expert G. Edward Griffin, author of The Creature from Jekyll Island. There are some sound drop-out issues at the beginning of this video; and the video and sound are out of sync throughout, but the information contained herein is critical to any understanding of who controls the real power centers in the United States and around the world. G. Edward Griffin does an excellent job summarizing Quigley’s 1,300 page Tragedy and Hope volume and quotes from Quigley’s equally important The Anglo-American Establishment . I’ve listened to many Griffin speeches, but this one does the best job summarizing Quigley’s substantial contribution to our understanding of history and then bringing this critical information into current time. You will not be disappointed.
Note: Due to the sync problems of this video, I listened but could not watch.
If you don’t have the time to read Quigley’s Tragedy and Hope, please check out Joe Plummer’s excellent –much shorter version- Tragedy and Hope 101.

Author Patrick Wood discusses his recent book “Technocracy Rising”, in a 3-part interview. (Summary of parts, below) Technocracy Rising
Patrick Wood is an author and lecturer who has studied elite globalization policies since the late 1970’s, when he partnered with the late Antony C. Sutton to coauthor Trilaterals Over Washington, Volumes I and II. He remains a leading expert on the elitist Trilateral Commission, their policies and achievements in creating their self-proclaimed “New International Economic Order.”
An economist by education, a financial analyst and writer by profession and an American Constitutionalist by choice, Wood maintains a Biblical world view and has deep historical insights into the modern attacks on sovereignty, property rights and personal freedom. Such attacks are epitomized by the implementation of U.N. policies such as Agenda 21, Sustainable Development, Smart Growth and in education, the widespread adoption of Common Core.
Wood is a frequent speaker and guest on radio shows around the nation. His current research builds on Trilateral Commission hegemony, focusing on Transhumanism, Technocracy and scientism, and how these are co-opting economics, politics and religion around the world.

Tragedy and Hope 101: The Illusion of Justice, Freedom, and Democracy by Joseph Plummer, Introduction by G. Edward Griffin (Apr 24, 2014)
CLEARNFO Rating:5 / 5 Stars 203 Pages (Paperback) Available at Amazon and other book re-sellers
Also available at no charge from Mr. Plumber’s web site HERE
Don’t have time to read 1,300 pages? Joseph Plummer’s ‘Tragedy & Hope 101’ is for you.
There is no question in my mind that one of the seminal books that authoritatively exposes the predominant power structure’s manipulation of world events is Carrol Quiqley’s ‘Tragedy & Hope’; but it is over 1,300 pages of incredible detail, which most of us don’t have time to read. This is why ‘Tragedy & Hope 101’ is such an important book.
Without an understanding of statecraft, it’s nearly impossible to make sense of the chaos in our world. Carroll Quiqley’s books are the on-ramp to this understanding.
To give you a taste of what you can expect from Plummer’s new book, here is a short excerpt from the Introduction to ‘Tragedy & Hope 101’ by G. Edward Griffin . . .
“Knowledge of who Carroll Quigley was and the deceptions that he revealed is essential for understanding the real world of today. His close relationship with the Network and his approval of its aims made it possible to provide an insider’s analysis of the minds and methods of the global elite. Without this knowledge, the actions of those who dominate the U.S. government and the Western world do not make sense. With it, everything falls into place.
Be forewarned. The journey you are about to begin is not for the faint hearted. If you are comfortable with the illusions that currently pass for political reality, this book is not for you because, once you discover how the deceivers perform their magic, the comfort of ignorance is no longer possible. Once the bell is rung, it cannot be unrung.
The bell starts ringing on the next page.”
ClearNFO gives ‘Tragedy & Hope 101’ 5 out of 5 stars for a well researched, written and organized book that does more than summarize Quigley’s ‘Tragedy and Hope’; it makes this important knowledge accessible to the average person. ClearNFO recommends this book as a primer for Quigley’s T&H and perhaps more importantly as a companion for Quigley’s ‘Ango-American Establishment’.
As a Bonus Mr. Plummer is offering a 90 percent reduced “excerpts” version of ‘The Anglo-American Establishment’ and ‘Tragedy and Hope’, where you can find a few hundred pages from the two books here: Tragedy & Hope 101 – Bonus Material
From The Naked Capitalist, Skousen’s review of Carroll Quigley’s Tragedy and Hope:
“Power from any source tends to create an appetite for additional power… It was almost inevitable that the super-rich would one day aspire to control not only their own wealth, but the wealth of the whole world.” “As I see it, the great contribution which Dr. Carroll Quigley unintentionally made[…]was to help the ordinary American people realize the utter contempt which the network leaders have for ordinary people. Human beings are treated en masse as helpless puppets on an international chess board where giants of economic and political power subject them to wars, revolution, civil strife, confiscation, subversion, indoctrination, manipulation and outright deception as it suits their fancy and their concocted schemes for world domination.”
MORE NFO: Excellent commentary and summary of Carroll Quigley’s Tragedy & Hope can be found at the link below. T&H is perhaps the most important book of the 20th Century. Don”t neglect Quigley’s ‘Anglo-American Establishment’. Excellent reading list below in the show notes including critical books by Antony C Sutton. An understanding of the contents of these books will make current national and geopolitics crystal clear. All these books are sourced and based on documented fact that today’s educational systems have been rigged to obfuscate.
