The International Rescue Committee formed in 1933 to help German refugees escape Germany. It began in Europe as the International Relief Association. It was founded at the suggestion of Albert Einstein who became one of the beneficiaries of the Association when he arrived in the United States as a refugee. The Association also helped refugees escape from Italy – under Mussolini and Spain – under Franco.
Another organization, the Emergency Rescue Committee (ERC) formed to assist Europeans in leaving occupied France. In 1942, the International Relief Association and the Emergency Rescue Committee joined forces to ultimately become the International Rescue Committee.
World War II caused a massive upheaval as civilians sought to escape the fighting. To deal with the crisis, the Allied powers established the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA) in 1943. At that time, the term ‘United Nations’ referred to the Allied Powers and in particular, the United States and Britain. The term United Nations was coined in the Atlantic Charter that was signed by Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Winston Churchill in 1941.
“The United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration was therefore set up in 1943, and this was replaced in 1947 by the International Refugee Organization…. these organizations… were the direct predecessors of the UNHCR”. (UNHCR ‐ United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees). UNHCR History.
When the war ended, the UNRRA was focused on the mission of repatriation of refugees back to their home countries. This caused a dispute because the Western Allies thought that people should be free to choose where they wanted to live. The Eastern Allies wanted refugees repatriated.
“The debate went to the heart of the fundamental ideological conflicts dividing East and West at the time. This concerned the issue of whether or not people should have the right to choose their country of residence, to flee oppression and to express their own opinions”.
The International Refugee Organization (IRO) was created in 1947 as a non‐permanent United Nations specialized agency. When it was set up, the expectation was that its three‐year programme would be completed by 30 June 1950.” Page 4 UNHCR history.
“Western governments argued that the scattering of refugees around the world would promote a more favourable distribution of population by decongesting Europe and benefiting the under‐populated, less developed ‘overseas democracies’.” Page 17
The cold war was the hardening of positions in the east‐west stand‐off. The Berlin blockade followed by the formation of two German states, the creation of NATO, Mao Zedong’s victory in China and the start of the Korean War were all justification to continue the operations of the IRO as a permanent United Nations programme. The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly.
“It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country. It also has a mandate to help stateless people.”
The trap was set and the United States has been at war – or rather, “police action”, ever since. Rather obviously, whenever there is any sort of civil disturbance, people leave. It’s not rocket science to figure out that if an enemy causes upheaval, then the United States would be obligated to take the “refugees” among whom are the very enemies who caused the upheaval in the first place.
To see how this strategy works, we have to look back at Germany in 1933. Recall that the IRC was formed in 1933 to help German Jews escape Germany and the idea is attributed to Albert Einstein who was then head of the International Relief Association. In 1933, the war in Europe hadn’t started. What happened in 1933 was that Hitler was appointed as Chancellor following elections in which his coalition, the Nazi Party, won.
“Hitler gained popular support by attacking the Treaty of Versailles and promoting Pan‐ Germanism, antisemitism, and anti‐communism with charismatic oratory and Nazi propaganda. Hitler frequently denounced international capitalism and communism as being part of a Jewish conspiracy.” Wikipedia
The Treaty of Versailles included language to create the League of Nations which was the predecessor to the United Nations. In 1922, following the Paris Peace Conference, the International Committee on Intellectual Co‐Operation was formed. Albert Einstein was a member of that Committee. (See overview HERE ).
Some of the first German refugees to enter the United States were settled in Asheville, North Carolina at a place that was called Black Mountain College. Black Mountain College was “conceived by John A. Rice”. The refugees at Black Mountain were scholars and artists from the Bauhaus School of Art and Architecture in Germany. The United States was in the Great Depression but Franklin Delano Roosevelt established a program called the Public Works Art Project to provide funding for them. The New Deal – WPA project didn’t start until 1935.
Rice was a Rhodes Scholar and a disciple of John Dewey’s principle of progressive education. Black Mountain College was actually a commune ‐ a communist cell for scholars and artists who fled Germany when Hitler closed the Bauhaus which was their base of operations.
The intellectuals and artists of the Bauhaus were Dadaists. Stated simply, Dadaists are culture jammers – anarchists who are anti‐culture, anti‐norm, anti‐values, anti‐society – what’s ugly is beautiful and what’s beautiful is ugly. They use their talents – music, art, intellect, theatre, oratory to denigrate and tear down everything about a culture and a society that normal people hold dear. They create the chaos in a society – to generate disorder, disharmony, discontent. The more they push the societal boundaries – the more Authoritarian the State becomes which in turns builds the movement of dissidents among which are patriots who seek to restore their society but who become the unwitting dupes of the communist‐dadaists. [Note: The Social Justice Warriors and the LGBT community are the Dadaists this time around. And Black Lives Matter are the Nazis Update 11/19/2016. VLD]
“Steven Metz, an expert in insurgencies described it this way: A successful insurgency doesn’t need a popular uprising. They only need a small percentage of active supporters. They need the public to be so afraid of them or to be so turned off that they are willing to be passive ‐ to stay out of the whole thing.” [MORE]
So that’s the formula for installing an Authoritarian regime. When the society breaks down, the military steps in and the culture jammers beat feet for their next target of operations. The culture jammers are labeled refugees and the International Rescue Committee gets them set up in their new target of operations.
The International Rescue Committee is located in many places in the United States – importing “refugees” as fast as they possibly can. And Congress is funding this invasion of our country – not coincidentally under the same conditions as when they started – during a Depression.

The current President and CEO of the IRC is a Brit named David Miliband. Miliband served as the Secretary of the Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs under Prime Ministers: Gordon Brown and Tony Blair. (See Tony Blair, Bill Clinton – Third Way – Progressive Policy Institute)
“From 2007 to 2010, he served as the youngest U.K. Foreign Secretary in three decades, driving advancements in human rights and representing the United Kingdom throughout the world. As Secretary of State for the Environment he pioneered the world’s first legally binding emissions reduction requirements.
From the UK Independent:
David Miliband was born on 15 July 1965 to Ralph Miliband, a prominent left-wing intellectual in the 1950s, and Marion Kozak, a feminist and historian of the early 20th century. Born in London, Miliband was educated at Haverstock Comprehensive School in Camden, North London.
He studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and took a masters in Political Science at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He edited the 1994 essay collection “Reinventing the Left”, and coedited “Paying for Inequality” with Andrew Glyn in the same year.
New York Magazine, September 6, 2013, 91 Minutes with David Miliband:
“The unabashedly intellectual son of a famous Marxist theorist, he had been appointed Tony Blair’s chief of policy at 29. Election to Parliament soon followed, as did stints as environmental secretary and foreign secretary.”
Quotes by and about David Miliband:
“David Miliband, the former foreign secretary, has broken ranks with world leaders by describing the military intervention in Egypt as a “coup” and urging all sides to embrace “political Islamism” for the sake of democracy.
