The Trilateral Commission is officially an economic cooperation between the United States, Japan and Europe, but in reality it's a secretive organization/society. Its true goal is to create a system of world currency and world governance to achieve a New World Order.
Establishment of the Trilateral Commission
In July, 1973, the Trilateral Commission was founded. It's a private organization, official created to foster closer cooperation between the U.S., Japan and Europe. The founder, David Rockefeller, was the Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) at that time. The Trilateral Commission is widely seen as an off-shoot of the Council on Foreign Relations.
The Trilateral Commission arose from the Bilderberg Group when one of its prominent member, Esso of Standard Oil's David Rockefeller, came into conflict with other members over whether to include Japan in the club.
In 1970, Professor Zbigniew Brzezinski published his book 'Between Two Ages', this book impressed David Rockefeller so much he lures its author away from the Columbia University to become Chairman and co-founder of the Trilateral Commission in 1973.
Together with Zbigniew Brzezinski and a few others, including people from the Council on Foreign Relations, Ford Foundation and the Brookings Institution, Rockefeller organised meetings and held their first executive committee meeting in Tokyo in October, 1973.
The meeting was attended by politicians, corporate CEOs, prominent university presidents, labor union leaders and academics.
True Purpose of the Trilateral Commission
The Trilateral Commission was created to become a type of international CFR. Its goal is to merge all developed nations to create a world government. The Trilateral Commission is preparing the framework/power structure which is necessary for multinational banks and corporations to seize global control over the world population, governments, and economies.
In April, 1974, former U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, CFR and Trilateralist member, Richard Gardner's publishes an article in the CFR's Foreign Affairs 'The Hard Road to World Order' where he states that: "the 'house of world order' will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down...but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault."
The world can be divided into three major economic regions: North America, Europe and the Far East (China, Japan etc.). If, under the pretext of having to join forces to be able to face economic competition with the two other economic regions, the member countries of each of these three regions may decide to merge into one single nation, forming three super-states, then the one-world government will be much closer. The Trilateral Commission achieves its ultimate goal (a world government) step by step.
In 1977, Jeremiah Novak writes the 'Trilateral Connection' in the July edition of Atlantic Monthly, in which he states: "For the third time in this century, a group of American schools, businessmen, and government officials is planning to fashion a New World Order..."
In 1979, Barry Goldwater, retiring Republican Senator from Arizona, publishes his autobiography 'With No Apologies'. He states: "In my view The Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power -- political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical. All this is to be done in the interest of creating a more peaceful, more productive world community. What the Trilateralists truly intend is the creation of a worldwide economic power superior to the political governments of the nation-states involved. They believe the abundant materialism they propose to create will overwhelm existing differences. As managers and creators of the system they will rule the future."
Members of the Trilateral Commission
The Trilateral Commission consists of approximately 400 private citizens from the United States, Europe, and Asia. These individuals have a lot of power and influence in the banking sector, politics and business world.
Some notable members of the Trilateral Commission include:
- David Rockefeller: Founder of the Commission; Chairman of the Chase Manhattan Bank board from 1969 to 1981; Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations from 1970 to 1985, now honorary Chairman; a life member of the Bilderberg Group.
- Presidents George H.W. Bush, Jimmy Carter, and Bill Clinton
- Dick Cheney, William Cohen, Dianne Feinstein, David Gergen, Henry Kissinger
- Federal Reserve Chairmen Alan Greenspan and Paul Volcker
- Caspar Weinberger: Secretary of Defense under Reagan
- John H. Bryan (former CEO of Sara Lee bakeries, affiliated with the World Economic Forum and part of the Board for Sara Lee, Goldman Sachs, General Motors, British Petroleum and Bank One).
- Lee Raymond (ExxonMobil (Former CEO and Chairman, vice chairman of the Board of Trustees of the American Enterprise Institute, director of J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., director and member of the Executive Committee and Policy Committee of the American Petroleum Institute), and others.
In 1981, researcher Laurie K. Strand stated in the book People's Almanac #3:
"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 …The Trilateral Commission's tentacles have reached so far in the political and economic sphere that it has been described by some as a cabal of powerful men out to control the world by creating a supernational community dominated by the multinational corporations."
Creation of the first Super-State: the European Union
The creation of the European super-state, the European Union, was initiated by members of the Trilateral Commission. The EU is the prototype of global governance that will soon exert its influence to reshuffle world relationships.
In 1993, the Single European Act (Maastricht Treaty) was signed in Maastricht, the Netherlands, requiring all the member nations of the European Community to remove their trade barriers, and to hand over their fiscal and monetary policies to the officials of the European Commission in Brussels, Belgium.
In January, 2002, nearly all the members of the European Union (EU) replace their national currency with a common currency, the "Euro". Moreover, the Treaty of Nice removes more powers from the nations to give them over to the European Commission. What begun as an economic cooperation in 1952 with the EEC (European Economic Community, a partnership between a few European nations to regulate the coal and steel industry), finally turned into an European super-state.
In 1948, Jean Monnet, a French socialist economist and founder of the EEC, must have had a European super-state in mind when he said: "Political union inevitably follows economic union." and "The creation of a United Europe must be regarded as an essential step towards the creation of a United World."
As regards of the North American region, the merge of its member nations is just a matter of time with the passage of free trade between the USA and Canada, and later Mexico. In the next few years, it is intended that all of Central and South America join this free trade agreement, with a common currency (the Amero) for them all. The upcoming American super-state is often referred to as the North American Union (NAU).
On 6 May, 2002, Mexico's President Vucente said the following in Madrid regarding an American super-state: "Eventually, our long-range objective is to establish with the United States, but also with Canada, our other regional partner, an ensemble of connections and institutions similar to those created by the European Union."
