A Facebook post of Leix Valenciano Holt saying not to be alarmed to the award received by Senator Leila De Lima is making rounds on social media. She said that one of the founders of the Foreign Policy Magazine is a co-member of Loida Nicolas-Lewis in the Council on Foreign Relations or CFR. The current CEO and editor of the magazine which is David Rothkopf is also a member of CFR. According to Holt, "The Council on Foreign Relations has been the most powerful private organization in U.S. foreign policy since it began in 1921." She also said that if you want to join, you need money. "Don't call them if you want to join; they call you. And don't wait for a call unless you have big money," Holt said. Read the full post below: "Huwag padadala sa award na yan na nakuha ni de Limao mula sa Foreign Policy Magazine. Ang isa sa mga founders ng magazine na iyan ay si Samuel Huntington na ka miembro ni Loida Nicolas-Lewis sa Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Ang current CEO at editor ng magazine ay si David Rothkopf na miyembro din ng CFR. Si Rothkopf ay nagsilbi ding managing director ng Kissinger Associates na binuo ng dating US Secretary of State na si Henry Kissinger na naakusahan ng napakaraming war crimes at crimes against humanity. Ayon sa isang diplomatic cable leak, ang CFR ay: "The Council on Foreign Relations has been the most powerful private organization in U.S. foreign policy since it beganin 1921. While priding itself on non-partisanship and on recent efforts to recruit minorities, women, and youth (under 35), CFR's 3200 members mainly reflect the resources needed by the ruling class to maintain their power. Don't call them if you want to join; they call you. And don't wait for a call unless you have big money, national security expertise, CIA experience, a political constituency, or clout with the media. CFR publishes the prestigious journal "Foreign Affairs" as well as a number of books and reports. Another major activity is to organize closed meetings for their members with assorted world leaders. Everyone feels free to share views and information about current world events, primarily because CFR has strict confidentiality rules and keeps its records locked up for 25 years." [source]
