The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an international organization founded in 1921, which has long promoted the involvement of the United States in other nations and the protection of international business interests.[1] The CFR seeks to influence American politics by inviting presidential candidates to speak at its events and by encouraging potentially influential businessmen, lawyers and government officials to join its organization or participate in its events. Many American presidents have spoken at CFR events.

It publishes a bi-monthly journal entitled Foreign Affairs, which has long been influential in some political circles.

Membership in the CFR is complex procedure designed to ensure continuation of its globalistic vision.[2] President Ronald Reagan was unusual among leading American politicians in shunning the CFR. Cong. Larry McDonald of Georgia was another strong opponent of the CFR.
