    Fellowship of the Stakeholders III: The Rotarian Oligarchy

    The purpose of this article is to expose the manner in which a group of about 300 conspirators with a globalist agenda, controls most of our region's political, cultural, and economic institutions.   

    In previous articles we have referred to this group of "insiders" as RINOs and Rotarians, but that is a simplification.   Their hidden network involves others and not all Rotarians are equally blameworthy. Nevertheless, the Rotary Club is an important part of the "Stakeholder Fellowship" and its members are easily identified and active in public life.  Therefore, Rotarians are a fitting group to focus on and expose

    The Rotarian Oligarchy rules by controlling the governing boards of dozens of commissions, foundations, and non-profits.

    Rule by Unelected Committees

    Very few of the government officals who influence the daily lives of area residents are actually elected.  Most of the people who run our cities, schools, and health districts are long term employees, and the citizens who serve on advisory boards or commissions are usually appointed.   And in addition to these non-elected government officials, there are many other privately controlled organizations that impact the lives of area residents. 

    For example, many non-profits provide important community services but are organized privately and are not accountable to the public.  And since donations are an effective way to gain control over these agencies,  the boards of many non-profits and foundations are dominated by wealthy donors or stakeholder proxies.  The directors of these communitiy organizations are often well-connected investors, financial advisors, realtors, or developers, and they frequently sit on numerous boards.  Still, the fact that relatively few people govern many interconnected agencies is not in itself, proof of corruption.  If these board members were independent-minded patriots instead of globalist lackeys, their dominance of our civic life would not be harmful.

    But if it can be determined that many of these directors are members of an exclusive club that meets weekly, uses its influence to place its agents on governing boards, and is openly allied with INTERNATIONAL political societies, then the threat of subversion and foreign interference is real.  And the data provided below proves that this is undeniably the case. 

    Rotarian Domination of Civil Institutions

    The Institutions listed below are of enormous importance to Kootenai County.  All are worthy of more study, but at this we are only attempting to expose the vast, disportionate influence of Rotary International members on community agencies. There are only about 300 active Rotarians in a county of over 170K.  Yet this small group controls dozens of civic organizations.

    Each of the institutions listed below includes a short description their purpose and a link to a list of board members.   Our charts include professional and civic associations, as well as the names of each board member.  Civic associations are included because many Rotarians are involved in numerous commercial, cultural, or charitable organizations, and it is this network of interconnected financial and political institutions that is the key to understanding the Rotarian oligarchy

    Rotarians and the Stakeholders they represent rely on faceless corporations and unaccountable organizations,—never personally responsible individuals,—to promote their hidden agenda.  There is always a remote authority;  a bureaucratic obstacle, or necessity regulation,  that opposes individual liberty.   All growth must be "planned"; all development must be "sustainable", and even Rotarians themselves are just cogs in the machine—interchangeable agents of oligarch-controlled bureaucracies. 

    It is significant the Rotarian logo is a COG with the word INTERNATIONAL on it.  Symbolism is important.   

    Foundations and Non-Profits:  Board Member Lists

    A sample Board Member list is shown above.  Rotarians are shown in RED.    Agencies highlighted in BLUE or BLACK are under Rotarian influence. A link to a similar list of Board Members is provided for each of the following organizations.  (**See NOTES


    • CDA Chamber of Commerce—A national network of Chambers of Commerce arose in 1915 shortly after the Rotary Club were founded, and the organizations are closely related.   15 of 24 board members are Rotarians.
    • CDA Economic Development Corp—CDAEDC (formerly Jobs Plus) is part of a national network of EDC's funded by the Commerce department.   They offer low interest loans, grants, and tax credits to businesses relocating to the area.  12 of 30 board members are Rotarians.
    • CDA 2030—is a privately established “City Planning” organization that advocates for Agenda 21 and Smart Growth development.  It was created by CDA officials who thought it would be advantageous if City Planning could be done off site, out of public purview.   The current board of includes 8 of 16 Rotarians.   
    • Envision CDA—was a collaboration between CDA 2030 and the City of CDA that  produced the highly controversial 2042 Comp Plan.   4 of 9 members of the Planning Board, and 8 of 21 on the Advisory Board were Rotarians.
    • IGNITE CDA, and HURA are “Urban Renewal” agencies. They are financed by Tax Increment Financing (TIF), a method by which property tax dollars are siphoned off from general funds to subsidize development. It is, of course, a racket designed to benefit “insiders”. In CDA  4 of 10 on the Ignite board and in Hayden 4 of 7 on the HURA board have Rotarian connections. 
    • The Panhandle Affordable Housing Alliance (PAHA) is a HUD/IHFA sponsored “Community Housing Organization” that uses federal funds to build and manage “low income housing"  3 of 6 board members are Rotarians.



    • North Idaho College is funded by state and local taxes and overseen by an elected Board of Trustees.   2 of 5 current trustees, are Rotarians, both of whom were appointed rather than elected.   5 of the 8 "finalists" selected by the state to replace resigned board members were Rotarians.  
    • The North Idaho College Foundation contributes to many special projects, and has always had a great deal of sway over the institution.  17 of 27 board members are Rotarians.   



    • Heritage Health is a “Federally Qualified Health Center”  that receives most of its money from federal grants for providing services to “underserved” residents, such as non-citizens, drug-addicts, and mentally ill.   5 of 17 board members are Rotarians.
    • Kootenai Health is a public hospital funded primarily by local taxes and federal grants. KH Trustees are elected and oversee both operations and new development.  5 of 9  Trustees are Rotarians.
    • The Kootenai Health Foundation raises money for medical related projects and development. The foundation has significant influence over the Hospital especially regarding new facilities and development.   8 of 16 board members have Rotarian connections.



    There are dozens of non-profit organizations in Kootenai, and many of the larger, important ones have a significant Rotarian presence.  Many do valuable work, but some non-profit agencies are used to channel federal funds to fund left-wing activism or to promote a globalist agenda.  The politics of federally-subsidized non profits is too complicated to discuss here, but suffice it to say that our local oligarchy is well aware of the advantages of working under the cover of fake "community service".   The following is a short list of non-profits that illustrate the range of  “Charitable” activities that Rotarians use to disguise their globalist ambitions. 

    • The Human Rights Education board includes 4 of 12 Rotarian members. Both paid staff members are Rotarians.
    • The Museum of North Idaho board includes 5 of 10 Rotarian members, including its director.  
    • The Kroc Center/Salvation Army advisory board includes 8 of 30 Rotarians, and 7 of 9 of the founding members, who secured the original $70 Million dollar grant from the Kroc foundation, were Rotarians.  
    • The North Idaho Boys and Girls Club is one of the designated charities associated with the Rotary Club, and 10 of 17 board members are Rotarians.
    •  Most of North Idaho's St. Vincent de Paul budget comes from state or federal grants. It's Housing board operates over 300 units of "affordable housing".  5 of 12  lay board members are Rotarians.    


    Dethroning the Rotarian Oligarchs

    To bring about government by oligarchy, masquerading as democracy, it is essential
    that  authority and control be centralized in our Federal government.
    The  sovereignty of our states must be destroyed — Franklin D. Roosevelt

    The key to dethroning the Rotarian Oligarchs is to understand the nature of the threat they pose. Rotarians and their Globalist, "Stakeholder" cronies are neither conservative or liberal:  They are Federalists.   The primary purpose of the Rotary Club has always been to help federalize local government, under cover of community involvement.    The Federalist objective is to undermine local control and turn all community decision making;  from urban planning, to children's libraries, to public health, over to national (or global) authorities.   Many of the institutions listed above were designed for the purpose of minimizing personal autonomy, subverting democracy, and imposing a globalist vision of "safe", "sustainable", and "equitable"  growth on an unwilling population. 

    To rid ourselves of the unelected Rotarian oligarchy, the focus must be on dismantling their institutions rather than removing individuals.  There is no point in removing a Rotarian from a position, if an unknown globalist conspirator step into his place.   CDA 2030,  Jobs Plus, Urban Renewal, and Public "Arts" Commissions, should not exist.  Reform is neither possible or desirable.   The Rotarian oligarchy will collapse when Rotarian institutions are exposed, discredited, and quashed. 


    1. We've counted former and immediate family members as Rotarians.
    2. Information about member associations has been taken from internet sources, and may not be accurate.  However, the importance of the data is in the aggragate, not in particulars
    3. Many important governing boards were not analyed in this report.  Some of those omitted include P/Z Commissions, Library Boards, Highway Districts, School Boards, and Conservation Districts.  
    4. Important non profits  with Rotarian associations have not been yet considered. This may be a topic of future investigation.
