Chapter 6 – Trilateral Commission

                          The Trilateral Commission

The Trilateral Commission was founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski. It has headquarters in New York, Paris, and Tokyo. It is said to be funded by the tax-exempt giants like Ford, Lilly Endowment, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the German Marshall Fund, and corporations such as Time, Bechtel, Exxon, General Motors, Wells-Fargo, etc.
Its membership is composed of past and present presidents, ambassadors, secretaries of state, Wall Street investors, NATO and pentagon military personnel, international bankers, foundation executives, media owners, university presidents and professors, senators and congressmen, and wealthy industrialists and entrepreneurs.

“The Trilateral Commission was formally established in 1973 and consisted of leaders in business, banking, government, and mass media from North America, Western Europe, and Japan,”   “With the blessing of the Bilderbergers and the CFR, the Trilateral Commission began organizing on July 23-24, 1973.”
Its existence is a proven fact as verified by mainstream news sources such as Time Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, U.S. News and World Report, and The Washington Post.

In this Book written by Professor Antony Sutton, and Patrick M. Wood ” America’s Secret Establishment”,
Professor Antony Sutton wrote, “The organization is completely above ground. In fact,” he stated, “this author has openly debated with  George Franklin, Jr., … of the Trilateral Commission on the radio.
” Mr. Franklin did show a rather ill-concealed dislike of the assault on his pet global New World Order–and made the mistake of attempting to disguise this objective.”

“The Trilateral Commission was formed in 1973 by private citizens of Western Europe, Japan and North America to foster closer cooperation among these three regions on common problems. It seeks to improve public understanding of such problems, to support proposals for handling them jointly, and to nurture habits and practices of working together among these regions.” Sutton and Wood then explain that the rest of their book is devoted to telling the truth about the commission.

Referring to the Task Force Report entitled, The Crisis of Democracy written in part by Harvard political scientist Samuel P. Huntington, author Marrs noted, “The paper suggested that leaders with ‘expertise, seniority, experience and special talents’ were needed to ‘override the claims of democracy.’” He added, “Three years after his paper was published, Huntington was named coordinator of the 1979 presidential order creating the” Federal Emergency Management Agency” [FEMA], a civilian organization with the power to take totalitarian control of government functions in the event of a national ‘emergency.’”

Trilateral Commission has infiltrated the executive branch of the United States government. Regarding the beginning of this pattern of infiltration into the White House, Sutton and Wood commented,       “On 7 January 1977 Time magazine, whose editor-in-chief, Hedley Donovan, is a powerful Trilateral Commissioner, named President Carter ‘Man of the year.’” They added, “Carter had already chosen his cabinet.

Three of his cabinet members–Vance, Blumenthal, and Brown–were Trilateral Commissioners… In addition, Carter had appointed another fourteen Trilateral Commissioners to top government posts. … These presidential appointees represented almost one-third of the Trilateral Commission members from the United States.

Try to give odds to that!”

The January 16, 1977 issue of The Washington Post expressed, “Trilateralists are not three-sided people.

They are members of a private, though not secret, international organization put together by the wealthy banker, David Rockefeller, to stimulate the establishment dialog between Western Europe, Japan  and the United States.

But here is the unsettling thing about the Trilateral Commission. The President-elect [Carter] is a member. So is the Vice-President-elect Walter F. Mondale. So are the new Secretaries of State, Defense and Treasury. So is Zbigniew Brzezinski, who is a former Trilateral Director and Carter’s National Security Adviser, also a bunch of others who will make foreign policy for America in the next four years.”

The same issue of The Washington Post reported that, “At last count,  13 Trilateralists had gone into top positions in the administration, not to mention six other Trilateralists who are established as policy advisers, some of whom may also get jobs. This is extraordinary when you consider that the Trilateral Commission only has about 65 American members.”

“The new President [Carter] appointed more than seventy men from the CFR, and over twenty members of the much smaller Trilateral Commission. Zbigniew Brzezinski acknowledges in his White House Memoirs: “Moreover, all the key foreign policy decision makers of the Carter Administration had previously served in the Trilateral Commission…” “Brzezinski,” stated Perloff, “of course, became  National Security Adviser, the same position Kissinger had held.”

Commenting on a June 18, 1974 article in the New York Times, which stated, “the lives and fortunes of large numbers of human beings hang upon the outcome of decisions taken by a small handful of national leaders-on the Trilateral Commission,” Gary Allen warned that “it was time to pay more attention–a lot more attention–to the group.”

Regarding the consolidation process of the New World Order, Sutton and Wood commented, “In September 1974 Brzezinski was asked in an interview by the Brazilian newspaper Vega, ‘How would you define this new world order?’” Brzezinski answered, “We need to change the international system for a global system in which new, active and creative forces–recently developed–should be integrated.

This system needs to include Japan, Brazil, the oil producing countries, and even the USSR…” When asked if Congress would have an expanded or diminished role in the new system, Brzezinski declared, “The reality of our times is that a modern society such as the U.S. needs a central coordinating and renovating organ which cannot be made up of six hundred people.”

This man is telling you that this New World Order will be a consolidation of individual countries into a single world government, which will be controlled by a small clique of insiders, who believe they are fit to rule the planet. Anytime you have a consolidation of the power such as this, you have a dictatorship!

Quoting from Brzezinski’s book, Between Two Ages, Sutton and Wood wrote that Brzezinski described Marxism as, “a further vital and creative stage in the maturing of man’s universal vision. … Tension is unavoidable as man strives to assimilate the new into the framework   of the old.

But at some point the old framework becomes overloaded.” Brzezinski continued, “The new input can no longer be redefined into traditional forms, and eventually it asserts itself with compelling force. Today, though the old framework of international politics–with … the fiction  of sovereignty … is clearly no longer compatible with reality.”

According to Sutton and Wood, when Brzezinski uses the word “framework” he apparently means the U.S. Constitution; if this is so, then what he told us in 1971 is that the Trilateral Commission plans to make drastic changes to the U.S. Constitution.

“One of the most important ‘frameworks’ in the world … is the United States Constitution,” exclaimed Sutton and Wood. So why is it so important to these elite organizations that the Constitution be  changed?

Well, they’ve admitted in their own publications that they tend to merge the U.S. and other NATO countries into a single world government controlled by the big corporations.

Would a constitution which guarantees individual freedom interfere with their plan?

Before the amendments made by the U.S. Patriot Act, and other anti-terror legislation, the constitution made it impossible for a totalitarian regime to flourish in the United States.

Sutton and Wood wrote that the Trilaterals wanted to assemble, “a national constitutional convention to re-examine the nation’s formal institutional framework,” in order to open up “a national dialog on the relevance of existing arrangements… The needed change,” said the Trilaterals “is more likely to develop incrementally and less overtly.” Brzezinski himself declared, “International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance   of the political concepts of the nation-state.”

Changing “existing arrangements” can be safely translated to existing freedoms, such the Bill of Rights. And “less overtly” means they’ll be making these changes without your approval using deception. Sutton and Wood commented, “When Brzezinski refers to “develop(ing) incrementally and less overtly” he is specifically recommending a deceptive … approach to abandonment of the Constitution.” After the current “framework” is removed, it will apparently be replaced with a world constitution furnished by the UN, which doesn’t guarantee personal freedom as a human right, but makes it a privilege, which is granted if possible.

When multinational corporations and banks run the planet, this is basically global fascism. Whether it’s called fascism, or communism,   or socialism, it’s all the same, which is control by those in charge of the state, or super-state, in the case of the New World Order.

Again Sutton and Wood warn, “Those ideals which led to the heinous abuses of Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, and Mussolini are now being accepted as necessary inevitabilities by our elected and appointed leaders.”

“Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.” -Benito Mussolini

In his bestselling book, With No Apologies, Senator Barry Goldwater described the true intentions of the Trilateral Commission as, “a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power-political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical [religious].” He added, “All this is to be done in the interest of creating a more peaceful, more productive world.” In other words by using a big lie.

The Task Force report put out by the TC entitled, The Crisis of Democracy stated, “The democratic political system no longer has any purpose. The concepts of equality and individualism give problems to authority. The media is not sufficiently subservient to the elite. Democracy has to be “balanced” (i.e., restricted). The authority and power of the central government must be increased.”

These people are telling you that they’re going to restrict your individual rights and centralize power into corporate hands. There can be no confusion over the objectives of this group that has infiltrated the executive branch since the 1970s.

They are telling you in their own publications exactly what they intend to do. They are setting up a worldwide fascist dictatorship!

“Trilateralism is the current operational vehicle for a corporate socialist takeover,” advised Sutton and Wood. Likewise, Senator Goldwater calls the Trilateral Commission an “international cabal,” which “is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States.” This covert takeover has been done, not by a civil war but by infiltration.

On July 23, 1976, the Greek newspaper Exormisis recognized this overthrow when they wrote, “A new kind of fascism emerges with Carter. The oppression will not have the form we used to know, but it will be the ‘depoliticization’ of all citizens in the U.S., and the generating of all power in the executive branch, that is, the Presidency, without the President giving any account to the Congress or anybody else except the multinationals [Banks/Corporations], which have financed Carter’s campaign… The accession to power of Carter …   would mean a new era of dictatorial policies.”

“Like sheep going to slaughter, our people cannot smell the death that awaits them,” warned Sutton and Wood.

“If we are about to be thrown into the pits of the dark ages, the most logical catalyst, or motivator on the horizon is the TRILATERAL COMMISSION.”

Those com­mis­sioners who Carter brought into his admin­is­tra­tion (the ini­tial “steering com­mittee”, if you will) were Walter Mon­dale (Vice Pres­i­dent), Zbig­niew Brzezinski (National Secu­rity Advisor), Cyrus Vance (Sec­re­tary of State), Harold Brown (Sec­re­tary of Defense) and  W. Michael Blu­men­thal (Sec­re­tary of the Trea­sury,) among others.As the Wash­ington Post phrased it: “Tri­lat­er­al­ists are not three-sided people. They are mem­bers of a pri­vate, though not secret,inter­na­tional orga­ni­za­tion put together by the wealthy banker, David Rock­e­feller, to stim­u­late the estab­lish­ment dia­logue between Western Europe, Japan and the United States. “But here is the unset­tling thing about the Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion.

The President-elect is a member. So is Vice-President-elect Walter F. Mon­dale. So are the new Sec­re­taries of State, Defense and Trea­sury, Cyrus R. Vance, Harold Brown and W. Michael Blu­men­thal.              So is Zbig­niew Brzezinski, who is a former Tri­lat­eral director, and, Carter’s national secu­rity advisor, also a bunch of others who will make for­eign policy for America in the next four years.”3

Before Carter’s term was com­pleted, no less than 18 mem­bers (thirty per­cent of the U.S. Com­mis­sion mem­ber­ship) of the Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion served in his admin­is­tra­tion.Coin­ci­dence? Hardly!

This article pur­posely leaves out dis­cus­sion of the non-U.S. mem­ber­ship of the Com­mis­sion mem­ber­ship, which will be saved for another day. Suf­fice it to say that the Euro­pean and Japanese con­tin­gents were just as pow­erful and effec­tive in their respec­tive home coun­tries.

Approx­i­mately one-third of the mem­ber­ship came from Europe and the other third from Japan. The joint mem­ber­ship met annu­ally (no press allowed) to for­mu­late policy and action plans for their respec­tive regions. Many, if not most, of their poli­cies were pub­lished in the Commission’s quar­terly journal, Trialogue.

The most damning argu­ment ever launched against the Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion is the uncon­sti­tu­tional influ­ence of other gov­ern­ments and forces upon the U.S. For instance, Com­mis­sion mem­bers are not elected nor rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the gen­eral pop­u­la­tion of the U.S., yet they effec­tively dom­i­nated the Exec­u­tive Branch of the U.S. gov­ern­ment.

When the Com­mis­sion resolved poli­cies (behind closed-doors) with non-U.S. mem­bers, who were a mere one-third minority, could it be said that for­eign influ­ences effec­tively con­trolled U.S. policy?

These con­cerns were never addressed by Con­gress or the Judi­ciary. The Exec­u­tive branch would have nothing to address because it has been con­tin­u­ously dom­i­nated by Com­mis­sion mem­bers — who repeat­edly assured us that there was no such con­flict of interest.

Of course, the answer to these ques­tions are self-evident: U.S. inter­ests, eco­nomic and polit­ical, have been subverted.

Cur­rent Tri­lat­eral Membership

The fol­lowing list of north Amer­ican mem­bers is not exhaus­tive. These are selected because of their high vis­i­bility in posi­tions within Cor­po­rate, Polit­ical or Eco­nomic and Press. The pur­pose here is to show that the Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion has grown, rather than declined, in strength over the years.
Keep in mind that there is no enroll­ment or appli­ca­tion process to belong to the Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion. One is invited to join in a manner sim­ilar to a col­lege stu­dent being “tapped” for mem­ber­ship in a fra­ter­nity. Thus, the process is highly selec­tive and dis­crete.

Can­di­dates are thor­oughly screened before invi­ta­tion is deliv­ered. For this reason, one can be rel­a­tively sure that anyone who is or who has ever been a member of the Com­mis­sion is in the core of the global   elite.

There are likely a few mem­bers who are not truly a part of the core, but for the sake of aggre­gate analysis, this is not an impor­tant issue.

Rock­e­feller and Brzezinski’s strategy was nefar­ious, yet brilliant.

The elec­tion of demo­crat James Earl “I will never lie to you” Carter was assured by deliv­ering the mostly demo­c­ratic labor vote. This was accom­plished by adding to the inner core: Leonard Wood­cock (UAW), I.W. Abel (United Steel­workers) and Lane Kirk­land (AFL-CIO).

By 1977, three more labor leaders were added to the mem­ber­ship: Glenn E. Watts (Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Workers of America), Martin J. Ward (pres­i­dent of United Asso­ci­a­tion of Jour­neymen and Appren­tices), and Sol Chaikin, pres­i­dent of the Inter­na­tional Ladies Gar­ment Workers Union.

Leonard Wood­cock served as Chief Envoy to China under Carter, and was largely respon­sible for solid­i­fying eco­nomic and polit­ical ties with Com­mu­nist China. [Editor’s note: Any reader who is or was a member of one of these unions will instantly have flashes of insight as to the enduring duplicity of labor man­age­ment — you were effec­tively “sold down the river” starting 1973 and con­tin­uing into the present.]

Those com­mis­sioners who Carter brought into his admin­is­tra­tion (the ini­tial “steering com­mittee”, if you will) were Walter Mon­dale (Vice Pres­i­dent), Zbig­niew Brzezinski (National Secu­rity Advisor), Cyrus Vance (Sec­re­tary of State), Harold Brown (Sec­re­tary of Defense) and W. Michael Blu­men­thal (Sec­re­tary of the Trea­sury,) among others.

As the Wash­ington Post phrased it:

“Tri­lat­er­al­ists are not three-sided people. They are mem­bers of a pri­vate, though not secret, inter­na­tional orga­ni­za­tion put together by the wealthy banker, David Rock­e­feller, to stim­u­late the estab­lish­ment dia­logue between Western Europe, Japan and the United States.

The eco­nomic sub­ver­sion of the U.S. was studied in The August Review’s America Plun­dered by the Global Elite and was likened to the plun­dering of a nation, the likes of which have not been seen in modern history.

The More Things Change, the More They Remain the Same

The occu­pa­tional makeup of the Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion has obvi­ously changed over time, but that only rep­re­sents the maturing of the glob­al­iza­tion process. What was needed in 1973 is not what is needed today. Still, there are some con­sis­ten­cies that are easily observed.
The most obvious con­sis­tency (and expan­sion) is the very large rep­re­sen­ta­tion by the banking cartel: two chairmen and two board mem­bers of of the Fed­eral Reserve System, two pres­i­dents of the World Bank, director of the Inter­na­tional Mon­e­tary Fund, and chairmen/CEO’s of sev­eral promi­nent global banks.

This does not take into account any link­ages from Com­mis­sion mem­bers who are also direc­tors of com­mer­cial and invest­ment banks. Finan­cial rep­re­sen­ta­tion is not inci­dental because money is the life-blood of glob­alism.

Through mem­ber­ship, the Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion dom­i­nates the exec­u­tive branch of the U.S. gov­ern­ment, the Fed­eral Reserve System, and is closely aligned with the Bank for Inter­na­tional Set­tle­ments, which con­trols the world’s cur­ren­cies and money supply. This is seen even without ana­lyzing the remaining two-thirds of Com­mis­sion mem­ber­ship that resides out­side of the U.S.

The Insti­tute for Inter­na­tional Eco­nomics (IIE)

The IIE is an example of a key orga­ni­za­tion in which one might iden­tify other core mem­bers of the global elite. Founded in 1981, IIE is a small policy-wonk orga­ni­za­tion with only 60 employees and an annual budget of $7 mil­lion.

According to its own web site, “The Insti­tute for Inter­na­tional Eco­nomics is a pri­vate, non­profit, non­par­tisan research insti­tu­tion devoted to the study of inter­na­tional eco­nomic policy. Since 1981 the Insti­tute has pro­vided timely, objec­tive analysis and con­crete solu­tions to key inter­na­tional eco­nomic problems.

“The Insti­tute attempts to antic­i­pate emerging issues and to be ready with prac­tical ideas to inform and shape public debate. Its audi­ence includes gov­ern­ment offi­cials and leg­is­la­tors, busi­ness and labor leaders, man­age­ment and staff at inter­na­tional orga­ni­za­tions, university-based scholars and their stu­dents, other research             insti­tu­tions and non­govern­mental orga­ni­za­tions, the media, and the public at large.

It addresses these groups both in the United States and around the world.“

This would be easily over­looked unless you examine IIE’s board of direc­tors. Tri­lat­er­alist Peter G. Peterson is chairman of the board. Anthony M. Solomon is hon­orary chairman of the exec­u­tive com­mittee. Solomon is the former chairman of War­burg (USA) Inc., former pres­i­dent and CEO of the Fed­eral Reserve Bank of New York and former Under Sec­re­tary of the Trea­sury for Mon­e­tary Affairs. Solomon was listed only as “Con­sul­tant” on the 1973 Com­mis­sion mem­ber­ship list.

There are 12 other Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion mem­bers (including David Rock­e­feller) on IIE’s board of direc­tors! Having estab­lished Tri­lat­eral influ­ence (if not total dom­i­na­tion), con­sider the fol­lowing non-Commission IIE board mem­bers who might well be can­di­dates    for inclu­sion in the core of the global elite:

Chen Yuan – Gov­ernor, China Devel­op­ment Bank; former Deputy Gov­ernor, Peo­ples Bank of China.

Jacob A. Frenkel – Former gov­ernor of the Bank of Israel and former IMF eco­nomic coun­selor and director of research.

Mau­rice R. Green­berg – Chairman, Amer­ican Inter­na­tional Group.

David O’Reilly – Chairman and Chief Exec­u­tive Officer, Chevron­Texaco Corporation.

James W. Owens – Chairman and CEO of Caterpillar.

Lawrence H. Sum­mers – Pres­i­dent, Har­vard Uni­ver­sity; former Sec­re­tary of the Treasury.
These are just a few of the non-Trilateral board mem­bers, and are reviewed only to show the process by which one might iden­tify addi­tional global elite core members.
There are other orga­ni­za­tions like IIE that could stand sim­ilar analysis of pur­pose, lead­er­ship and directorship.

Con­clu­sion

As was declared in the begin­ning of this analysis, the stam­pede to glob­alism is con­ducted by a small group of indi­vid­uals with aspi­ra­tions for global dom­i­nance. It should be noted again that there are mem­bers of the global “core” who are not mem­bers of the Tri­lat­eral Commission.

In gen­eral, they are driven by lust for money and power. They have clearly made an end-run around the Amer­ican people in order to achieve per­sonal goals that, in many cases, are dia­met­ri­cally opposed to U.S. inter­ests.

If the Amer­ican people fully under­stood the mag­ni­tude of the decep­tion and power-grab, they would imme­di­ately and totally repu­diate these indi­vid­uals and their self-serving global schemes.

In 1971, Zbig­niew Brzezinski wrote in Between Two Ages: The Tech­netronic Era,“…the nation-state as a fun­da­mental unit of man’s orga­nized life has ceased to be the prin­cipal cre­ative force: Inter­na­tional banks and multi­na­tional cor­po­ra­tions are acting and plan­ning in terms that are far in advance of the polit­ical con­cepts of the nation-state.”
Brzezinski could not have been more clear than this.

Of the few people who paid atten­tion to Brzezinski pre­vi­ously, only one person needed to receive his mes­sage fully: David Rock­e­feller, chairman of Chase Man­hattan Bank and con­sum­mate glob­alist. When they teamed up to start the Tri­lat­eral Com­mi­sison in 1973, the rest, as we say, “became history.”

So, how can one deter­mine if an indi­vidual is a member of the core of the global elite? There is a good chance that such a person will be:

 closely aligned with and accepted by many of the people already iden­ti­fied as core;

 often family-related to other core mem­bers (i.e., the Bush family, Rock­e­feller family, etc.);

 part of the “revolving-door” that switches them in and out of impor­tant and crit­ical posi­tions in gov­ern­ment, acad­emia and business;

 a member (director or high-level exec­u­tive) of an orga­ni­za­tion iden­ti­fied as a core com­pany, such as J.P. Morgan Chase, Cit­i­group, Cater­pillar Tractor, etc.;

 edu­cated at a pres­ti­gious and global-minded university;

 belong to one or more orga­ni­za­tions that are dom­i­nated by people already iden­ti­fied as core.

This list is not com­pre­hen­sive, nor is it meant to be some sim­plistic litmus test. It is impor­tant to realize that many names being bandied about are NOT part of the core of the global elite, but rather become decoys that shift the focus away from the real elite core. Dis­cre­tion, common sense and study is required to under­stand the dif­fer­ence between the two.

[Comment]

Thou its is not clear if all members listed and those that are not , are fully under the influence fully of the controllers of “CFR”  or the “Elites”, however these people do definately help in shape and determine policy in achieving the  goals and direct into the”Global Agenda “.

“The Trilateral Commission is international and is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the U.S.”
– Sen. Barry Goldwater

The Trilateral Commission is another tool used by the leaders of the CFR shadow government.
The world’s elite utilizes secretive organizations such as the Committee of 300 structure, the CFR, the Bilderberg Society, and the Trilateral Commission to further its ultimate goal of global domination.
Although all these groups play a part in the movement toward a One World Government, the facts on the Trilateral Commission all lead us more specifically to the Council on Foreign Relations.

“The concept of the Trilateral Commission was originally brought to (David) Rockefeller by Zbigniew Brzezinski, then head of the Russian Studies Department at Columbia University. While at the Brookings Institution, Brzezinski had been researching the need for closer cooperation between the trilateral nations of Europe, North America, and Asia. -Rule by Secrecy

With the blessing of the Bilderbergers and the CFR, the Trilateral Commission began organizing on July 23-24, 1972, at the 3,500-acre Rockefeller estate at Pocantico Hills New York–Rule by Secrecy.

“Many of the original members of the Trilateral Commission are now in positions of power where they are able to implement policy recommendations of the Commission; recommendations that they, themselves, prepared on behalf of the Commission. It is for this reason that the Commission has acquired a reputation for being the Shadow Government of the West.”
– Journalist and Trilateral Commission researcher Robert Eringer

“We’re all about exposing the frauds that an investigation of the facts on the Trilateral Commission bring up, like the fact that the same founders who formed the CFR (which formed the Commission), formed the Federal Reserve.”

“You need to understand that the elite funds its plans through illegal taxation and fraudulent debt creation. By blindly buying into federal taxes and a mountain of debt, Americans are unwittingly funding the elite and their totalitarian plans. It doesn’t have to be this way. If the people are educated on the fraud, the fraud falls apart. “

The facts on the Trilateral Commission show us that its most influential members (who also are on the CFR Membership List) are extremely active in forming U.S. Government policy.
