In a lengthy speech I found that Cleon Skousen gave at
Grantsville High School in 1992, he spoke about the Life of J. Reuben Clark
as a statesman, diplomat,
and prophet of God. President Clark led a very interesting life. I'm not
sure if this is OK, but I'm going to put the whole talk here since it was
a public address of some sort. As I said, it's lengthy, but it sets up the
concept of Track Two and explains very clearly how these secret combinations
came into effect and how President Clark saw them first hand since he was
hired by them.
Cleon Skousen's speech on J. Reuben Clark in 1992
Mentioned in that speech are talks J. Reuben Clark gave in 1923 in Salt
Lake City at the Tabernacle, and in General Conference in 1938, 1941, and
1952. I have never been able to locate the speech
1923, but here are the other three speeches.

So what is Track
Two? It is quietly going to work learning all that we can about the constitution
and agency of man that God has given us, and preparing
at a moments notice to switch a speeding train from a dead end track back
to a place that will save the lives of those passengers. In a sense, we're
all on that train and constructing Track Two by the process of educating
ourselves about the constitution. The more we learn and the better prepared
we are to restore our constitution the smoother the transition will be when
Track One is nearing its end.
"In questions of power then, let no more
be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the
chains of the Constitution."
- Thomas Jefferson
The problems we face are a direct result of public apathy in our leaders
changing the text or meaning of the constitution as it was originally given
and the full support and compliance of the media to not bring those things
to our attention or downplay them. The "talking heads" syndrome creates the
impression that we can't do anything because we think things are too big
and insurmountable. But we can! Read Ezra Taft Benson's excellent motivational
talk Actively Engaged.
