1313 GROUP

Hail Hydra!

I have never heard of these guys before.
But for nearly a hundred years the combined influence centered in this group has affected world events more than anyone can know.
The various foundations and organizations that participated in this information Clearing House of public control are still very much in power and influence today.
This is the same 1313 group that gets mentioned together with the Weather Underground Black Panthers and other subversive groups of the sixties.

Myron C Fagan in his 1967 speech called out the 1313 group among others such as the CFR as Illuminati front organizations used to carry out their bidding across the globe

One of the most interesting and remarkable aspects of the development of modern public administration in the 1930s is the joint occupancy by 17 organizations of public officials of a building at 1313 E. 60th Street in Chicago.

The building became famous (infamous to some) and was known simply as 1313. A 2004 article, "1313's Hidden History," in the Hyde Park Herald tells the story of the building's beginnings:

1313, completed in 1938, embodied the vision of two men, Charles E. Merriam, and Louis Brownlow. Brownlow had forged a career (without benefit of formal education) as a city manager and as a forceful advocate for the public service professions. Merriam was a University of Chicago political science professor with a bent for activism that led to service as a Chicago alderman and to two (unsuccessful) runs for the Mayoralty. The two men conceived 1313 as a vibrant center for (in the words of a 1963 booklet) “the improvement of the organization, administrative techniques, and methods of government--municipal, county, state, and federal--in the United States.” Within a few years, 1313 had clearly become a nerve center for American public administration. By 1963, it was organizational home to 22 non-profit entities, including:

American Public Works Association
American Public Welfare Association
Council of State Governments
American Society of Planning Officials
American Society of Public Administration
National Legislative Conference [One of NCSL's predecessor organizations]
Public Administration Service
National Association of State Budget Officers
National Association of Attorneys General

Each individual Administration or Foundation or Council has major power and influence.
Who ever knew that so far back there existed such a centralized seat of control?
Over time I would like to evaluate and analyze each member Council and organization from where they were then to where they are now today.

And in many ways they seem to be ahead of their time.
Suspiciously so.
They invented LEGISNET before the internet was even a twinkle in aol's eye. They install policy for tax assessors policy at every level of government tax collection law enforcement and anything you can imagine.
This was then. Imagine today.

The President has his work cut out for him.

On the surface and in plain sight are the Dems and the Cabal throwing huge amounts of money to topple his administration.

The Cabal don't seem to be getting anywhere.

But we know about the other insidious organizations, trying to control from the shadows. The Clinton Foundation and this one, 1313.

Strange how we also have other groups such as MS13 ... and M is the 13th letter of the alphabet.

One by one, down they must go.

If solid ties can be made with Friedman and the Chicago school of economics or mayor Daley/B.H. Obama then that would add some legitimacy of any conspiracy going on.

APWA, founded in 1930 as the American Association of Public Welfare Officials, is a professional organization for staff members of public agencies and others interested in public welfare. APWA studies and distributes information regarding legislation and also offers its members professional development opportunities.

A grant from The Rockefeller Foundation's Spelman Fund enabled the association to hire, in 1931, its first administrator, Frank Bane, formerly commissioner of the Virginia State Department of Public Welfare. The association grew rapidly, from the initial 151 persons to nearly 1,000 members two years later. In May 1932, the association changed its name to the American Public Welfare Association. (APWA)

Initially, the association's offices were in Washington D.C., but in 1932, APWA moved its headquarters to Chicago. It returned to Washington D.C. in 1974, where APWA remains at this writing.

The American Public Works Association

History of the Chicago Metropolitan Chapter of APWA The Chicago Metropolitan Chapter is the oldest and one of the largest, most active Chapters in the Association.
The Chapter was officially formed on January 15, 1933, which is the first date that the American Public Works Association came into existence. APWA was formed by the merger of two predecessor organizations; The American Society of Municipal Engineers and the International Association of Public Works Officials. Beginning in 1894 and until its relocation to Kansas City, Missouri in 1992, the association was headquartered (along with a number of other municipal associations) in the Merriam Center on the campus of the prestigious University of Chicago.

Founded in 1917 and renamed the American Planning Association in 1978 makes you wonder some things about some things......

Although AIP was incorporated in 1917 as the American City Planning Institute (renamed the American Institute of Planners in 1939), and ASPO in 1934, we trace our roots even further back to 1909 and the first National Conference on City Planning in Washington, D.C. From that and subsequent conferences, the organized planning movement emerged. This model of a single organization — a "big tent" for everyone interested in planning, with an internal institute to advance the interests of the profession — was unique at the time and has attracted great interest around the world.

Makes me think of all those wacky grid planned cities.

like chicago...
just a thought

This was then. Imagine today.

So what are you saying, that they were the prototype group for the UN and they are just as inefficient as it is?

People can dream I suppose. You know they say that for the average person there is nothing more scary then the boogieman, badman, Illuminati, or what not secret shadowy group, being in control and the pilots of the ship. Is the fact that there is no captain of the ship and the majority of things are just happenstances.

In which case one will either have to be appointed or made up. One of the two options. The tale of bad and good, brought to you from the book on the knowledge of good and evil. Primitive indeed.

Where is the anti Federal Reserve posts? I suppose it just common knowledge that our governments print money out of thin air.

I think it's a mix of both, just like in a war battlefield. Good strategy and tactics can go a far way, but accidents and random chaos does happen.

Persistence and determination though can remedy a lot of the chaos and keep the ball rolling in a certain direction.

Think of a random corporation. Is that company's success due to the pilot or is it purely happenstance? Clearly it's complex and all of these things play into the company succeeding or failing. The degrees of how much each factor plays into it varies and every situation is different.

Anyhow, thanks for sharing your research, it was a fascinating read.
It's really interesting information.

The civil service assembly of the United States and Canada , just from reading their publishing and reports seems to me, from its inception hell bent on reforming government control to encompass everything from the federal to small town level.
They wrote the procedures and handbooks on gov't administration , hiring practices and many more facets of civil service implementation that are in use globally today

The main thing I'm taking away from researching here is that all of these organizations are tax exempt nonprofits that received their money straight from city state and federal funds.
They receive tax money but at the same time form policy for tax laws and collections.
They are publicly subsidized yet do not answer to the public.
Several of the original 17 founders of the 13 13 group are today part of something called the Big 7.
Nongovernmental organizations which are funded by taxpayers yet do not represent the taxpayers.
I've already started doing my research on the individual founders of many of these organizations.
I have gone so far as to call a grand Masonic Lodge to find out if some of them were members about a hundred years ago. So far I see a good portion of these groups were funded by The Rockefellers.
I think this is a deep rabbit hole

I don't even think its that big. John D. Rockefeller alone threw his big bucks behind the spoiler candidacy of William Howard Taft in the 1912 election, essentially crippling Theodore Roosevelt's reelection campaign. This, as we all know, resulted in the election of Woodrow Wilson, stopping Roosevelt's campaign to stop the Big Banks, Oil Tycoons, Robber Barons, Industrialists and philanthropists (Carnegie and Rockefeller chief among them) in its tracks, which is why I believe the Progressive Era was essentially stillborn. We got into WWI, the Federal Reserve was founded by the Jekyll Islanders (the original Bilderberg) and then we had eugenics and other idiocies that led to WWII and in turn led to the establishments and power structures we see today. A lot of it was due to selfish rich people engaged in a tug-o-war with the people and their representatives (and bankrolling their own representatives or maneuvering into power representatives who could be manipulated or bent to the whims of the power elite) as opposed to some grand scheme or conspiracy. You don't even really need to ponder about "secret societies" or "deep states" when society itself is sick enough and you can see ostensibly apparent atrocities committed by the State in general before our very eyes day in and day out.

Given how many of these groups began in the 1930's under the FDR administration there are likely also many ties to the American Communist party (CPUSA) and American socialist parties.

However likely that maybe so far many of these founding members are the largest lobbying groups of their kind in America today but at the same time are subsidized with taxpayer money

the Council of state governments which was founded by Henry Wolcott toll.
A Colorado States senator who founded the organisation as a Clearinghouse and public advocate of strengthening States power in relation to the federal government.
Mr. Toll was a member of Phi Delta Phi the oldest American legal Society even predating the Bar Association.
Again another nonprofit which gets its money straight from taxpayers without it advocating for taxpayers

Our next victim is the Federation of tax administrators

What is FTA
The Federation of Tax Administrators (FTA) was organized in 1937 to improve the quality of state tax administration by providing services to state tax authorities and administrators. These services include research and information exchange, training, and intergovernmental and interstate coordination. The Federation also represents the interests of state tax administrators before federal policymakers where appropriate.

FTA serves the principal tax collection agencies of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Philadelphia, and New York City. The work of FTA is directed and governed by an eighteen-member Board of Trustees composed of tax administrators representing all regions of the country. The Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service is an ex-officio board member. The FTA staff consists of 10 full-time positions, headed by an Executive Director appointed by the Board of Trustees.

FTA is financed primarily from annual dues assessed to member tax agencies. Other sources of revenue include the sale of publications to non-members and proceeds from conferences and workshops. FTA is organized as a nonprofit corporation under § 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

FTA was organized in 1937 by representatives of the North American Gasoline Tax Conference (NAGTC), the National Association of Tax Administrators (NATA), and the National Tobacco Tax Association (NTTA).
