The Trilateral Commission
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," wrote James Perloff. "David Rockefeller was
founding chairman and Brzezinski founding director of the North
American branch, most of whose members were also in the CFR," he
added. Author Jim Marrs announced, "With the blessing of the
Bilderbergers and the CFR, the Trilateral Commission began
organizing on July 23-24, 1973 at the 3,500-acre Rockefeller
estate at Pocantico Hills, a subdivision of Tarrytown, New
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, as well as
multiple books including, Trilaterals Over
Washington, by Professor Antony Sutton and Patrick M.
Wood, America's Secret Establishment,
by Professor Antony Sutton, Dark Majesty
by Professor Texe Marrs (no known relation to Jim Marrs),
The Shadows of Power, by James
Perloff, and others.
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
The Trilateral Commission has an official
publication called, Trialogue. It
also issues multiple Task Force Reports (also called Triangle
Papers) per year. Although its meetings are invitation-only, its
membership list is publicly available and can be obtained by
contacting them at: 345 East 46th Street, Suite 711, New York,
Authors Sutton and Wood comment about the
seemingly innocent objectives of the Trilateral Commission.
Quoting from the objectives which appear in every issue of
Trialogue, they wrote, "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
Like the Council on Foreign Relations, the
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."
Author Perloff wrote, "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
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
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."
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

Security Advisor, and Cyrus Vance for Secretary of State.(*)
"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." [Emphasis in original]
The Trilateral Commission presents itself as a
humanitarian group, which seeks to promote world peace through
understanding and cooperation. However, its publications
indicate that it plans to install a worldwide dictatorship,
which will be dominated by the multinational corporations. This
is being accomplished using deception.
