Gary Allen (August 2, 1936 – November 29, 1986) was an American conservative journalist, book author, and sociopolitical researcher.[1]

Background

As a student, Allen majored in governor of Alabama and a one-time segregationist, during the 1968 U.S. presidential election against Richard M. Nixon and Hubert H. Humphrey. He was an advisor to the conservative Texas millionaire Nelson Bunker Hunt.[4]

Allen was the father of four children, including Mike Allen, the political news journalist who, as a Politico reporter, writes in a less editorialised manner than his father.[6]

Allen died in 1986 in Long Beach, California, at the age of 50 of a liver ailment.[1]

Writing

In 1972, Allen wrote with [7]

In this book, Congressmen Schmitz says in the Introduction, "The story you are about to read is true." Allen goes on to assert that the present political and economic systems in most developed nations are the result of a sweeping conspiracy by the Establishment's power elite, which started in the early 1900s. According to this theory, this has been a four-step process:

  1. Establish an income tax system as a means of extorting money from the common man;
  2. Establish a central bank, deceptively named so that people will think it is part of the government;
  3. Have this bank be the holder of the national debt;
  4. Run the national debt, and the interest thereon, sky high through wars (or any sort of deficit spending), starting with World War I.[8]

He quotes the Council on Foreign Relations as having stated, in its study no. 7 : ”The U.S. must strive to: A. BUILD A NEW INTERNATIONAL ORDER.” (Capitals in the original).[9]

As an investigator of U.S. financial, industrial, and political elites, Allen wrote other books about the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission, asserting that the term "New World Order" was used by a secretive elite dedicated to the destruction of all national sovereignties.[10]

Allen's last book, Say "No!" to the new world order, was published posthumously in January 1987.

Investigative reporter Chip Berlet argues that Allen's work provides an example of a synthesis of right-wing populism and conspiracism, a blend of ideas known as producerism.[11]
