Two more conspiracies against humanity: The Trilateral Commission & The Council on Foreign Relations

The Trilateral Commission:

"By the early 1970s, ... many Americans were becoming more aware of secretive organizations such as the Council on Foreign Relations. Former CFR chairman David Rockefeller, apparently in an effort to deflect public attention from CFR activities, instigated the creation of a more public offshoot organization: the Trilateral Commission.
"Trilateral" means "Europe, North America, and Asia".

The concept of the Trilateral Commission was originally brought to Rockefeller by Zbigniew Brzezinski, then head of the Russian Studies Department at Columbia University. Brzezinski declared that "National Sovereignty is no longer a viable concept".

Brzezinski's hope for a global society did not exclude nations under the rule of Marxism, which he described as "a further vital and creative stage in the maturing of man's universal vision... a victory of reason over belief." Brzezinski was named North American Director, when the Trilateral Commission was founded on July 1, 1973.

Trilateral Commission led to the 1979 creation of 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 acquired a reputation for being the "Shadow Government of the West".

Trilateral Commission 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.


The Trilateral Commission...started by David Rockefeller. It's amazing that the same names involved with the FED are involved with the Trilateral Commission. And....the concept of the TC was created by Brzezinski??...and he was the first director of the TC??

This BS organization was created to take attention off of the Council on Foreign why would that be necessary??

The Council on Foreign Relations:

"...the granddaddy of the modern American secret societies...".
The council began as an outgrowth of a series of meetings conducted during World War I. In 1917, Colonel Edward Mandell House, President Woodrow Wilson's confidential adviser, had gathered about one hundred prominent men to discuss the postwar world. Dubbing themselves "the Inquiry", they made plans for a peace settlement...

The CFR's [current-day] invitation-only membership, originally limited to 1,600 participants, today numbers more than 3,300 representing the most influential leaders in finance, commerce, communications [media!], and academia. Admission is a very discriminating and painful process: candidates have to be proposed by a member, seconded by another member, approved by a membership committee, screened by the professional staff, and finally approved by the board of directors.

Once the ruling members of the CFR have decided that the U.S. Government should adopt a particular policy, the very substantial research facilities are put to work to develop arguments, intellectual and emotional, to support the new policy, and to confound and discredit, intellectually and politically, ANY opposition...

John Kenneth Galbraith ... called off-the-record talks by the Treasury Secretary or CIA Director a "scandal". "Why should businessmen be briefed by government officials on information not available to the public...?" he asked.

This is the good part: "Once the ruling members of the CFR have decided that the U.S. Government should adopt a particular policy, the very substantial research facilities are put to work to develop arguments, intellectual and emotional, to support the new policy, and to confound and discredit, intellectually and politically, ANY opposition... "

Part of their goal is to confound and discredit ANY opposition......big surprise.

Everyone wants to know about the "Shadow Government".......well this is it. The FED, the TC, the CFR.....and don't forget the Bildebergers. I honestly did not know who the Bildebergers were until:

The Bilderbergers
...are a group of powerful men and women - many of them European royalty - who meet in secret each year to discuss the issues of the day. Despite the fact that many highly regarded American media members meet with the Bilderbergers, LITTLE OR NOTHING gets reported on the group or its activities, leading writers to claim censorship and news management.
"Bilderbergers" derives from Bilderberg Hotel in Oosterbeek, Holland, where the group was first discovered by the public in 1954.

Bilderbergers have included CIA Director Allen Dulles, CIA official Thomas Braden, OSS Director William Donovan, and CIA-connected C. D. Jackson, Life Magazine publisher and President Eisenhower's "special consultant for psychological warfare".

Primary impetus for meetings came from Dutch Prince Bernhard, a former member of the Nazi SS, who later married Princess Juliana and became a major shareholder and officer in Dutch Shell Oil.

Americans who have attended Bilderberger meetings include CFR members George Ball, Dean Acheson, Dean Rusk, McGeorge Bundy, Christian Herter, Douglas Dillon, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Walter Reuther, Jacob Javits, Robert McNamara, Walter Bedell Smith, General Lyman Lemnitzer, J. William Fulbright, Henry Ford II.

An obvious connecting link between the CFR, Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderbergers is the Rockefeller family, particularly th youngest son, David.

Senator Barry Goldwater: "David Rockefeller's newest international cabal [The Trilateral Commission] intended to be the vehicle for consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by SEIZING CONTROL OF THE POLITICAL GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES."

So...we have the FED, the TC, the CFR and the Bildebergers all controlling every aspect of our government. I've heard people on here say voting is the answer to ridding ourselves of all this corruption. How is voting the answer when all the candidates are in the pockets of the Illuminati?...the "Illuminated Ones"

Example: Our VP, Dick Cheney is a member of both the Trilateral Commission and The Council on Foreign Relations......

Yup. That pretty much sums it up. Its a common thread of duscussion on this site.

The CFR, The trilateral Commision, Bilderbergers, Skull and Bones, and Bohemian groves are the top suspects for NWO and global control conspiracies.

Even the comming EU president, Javier Solana, has been involved with CFR, Trilater, and Bilderbergers. The magic tripod of political success.

I also find it very interesting that the same names seem to pop up when referencing the memberships of these secret organizations. People need to understand that the manipulation (economic, social, and political) that these groups have exercised over them are real and also not coincidental. It is a very well organized scheme that has been in place many years and even centuries. The "un-Illuminated" masses need to be awoken to the realities of modern society so that decisive action can be taken to root out the true evils of the world.

One name that pops up everywhere: Henry Kissinger. he is still quite active too, but mostly from behind the scenes.

You have that right. Nixon sure had a lot of Germans in his circle. The other two big names that pop up in all these Cabals is Rockefeller and Rothschild......the biggest scum bags of them all....and also German.

The conferences and meetings of the Council on Foreign Relations, Council of the Americas, Royal Institute for International Affairs, Institute of Pacific Relations, Trilateral Commission, Gorbachev Foundation, Bill Gates, etc., are not places where major decisions are made or new strategies embraced. These are simply arenas where the agenda of the inner circle is imparted in camouflaged form to representative leaders from the six establishment categories (industrialists, financiers, ideologues, military, professional specialists (lawyers, medical doctors, etc.), and organized labor). These representatives also provide feedback on the status of their area of responsibility. If you were a fly on the wall at one of these conferences, you would seldom hear anything approaching ``smoking gun'' evidence of the grand design of the inner circle establishment. Most of the 3000-odd rank and file members of the CFR have no more suspicion of it than do most rank and file members of the public at large. The Bilderberg apparatus is indeed a place where one would hear noticeably more candid treatment of the strategies discussed in this compilation, but is still not by any means truly open. Bilderberg and the other gatherings are all arenas in which psychological warfare is waged on the world's visible elite.


Psychological nice. The source I just posted has a great deal of information on all these lovely cabals.....example:

The Council on Foreign Relations, housed in the Harold Pratt House on East 68th Street in New York City, was founded in 1921. In 1922, it began publishing a journal called Foreign Affairs. According to Foreign Affairs' web page (, the CFR was founded when "...several of the American participants in the Paris Peace Conference decided that it was time for more private American Citizens to become familiar with the increasing international responsibilities and obligations of the United States."

The first question that comes to mind is, who gave these people the authority to decide the responsibilities and obligations of the United States, if that power was not granted to them by the Constitution. Furthermore, the CFR's web page doesn't publicize the fact that it was originally conceived as part of a much larger network of power.

It seems this group granted itself its own power.....

When it was founded in 1921, the CFR was dominated by J.P. Morgan. Morgan is a Rothschild tentacle. This simply reinforces the obvious, that the CFR is a Rothschild instrument operated by the Rockefellers. The CFR is the immediate progeny of Rhodes' Round Table, which was underwritten by the Rothschilds.

David Rockefeller is the chairman emeritus of the CFR. Rockefeller also founded in 1973, and is honorary chairman of, the Trilateral Commission.

Like I said....Rockefellers and Rothschilds!! Two of the biggest scum bag families on the planet!!

the following is an abridged version of a speech given by Senator Jesse Helms (on the Senate floor) on 1987-Dec-15, from the Congressional Record 1987-Dec-15 p.S18146 (et seq), from

This campaign against the American people -against traditional American culture and values - is systematic psychological warfare. It is orchestrated by a vast array of interests comprising not only the Eastern establishment but also the radical left. Among this group we find the Department of State, the Department of Commerce, the money center banks and multinational coporations, the media, the educational establishment, the entertainment industry, and the large tax-exempt foundations.

Mr. President, a careful examination of what is happening behind the scenes reveals that all of these interests are working in concert with the masters of the Kremlin in order to create what some refer to as a New World Order. Private organizations such as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Trilateral Commission, the Dartmouth Conference, the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies, the Atlantic Institute, and the Bilderberger Group serve to disseminate and to coordinate the plans for this so-called New World Order in powerful business, financial, academic, and official circles. . . .

The psychological campaign that I am describing, as I have said, is the work of groups within the Eastern establishment, that amorphous amalgam of wealth and social connections whose power resides in its control over our financial system and over a large portion of our industrial sector. The principal instrument of this control over the American economy and money is the Federal Reserve System. The policies of the Industrial sectors, primarily the multinational corporations, are influenced by the money center banks through debt financing and through the large blocks of stock controlled by the trust departments of the money center banks.

Anyone familiar with American history, and particularly American economic history, cannot fail to notice the control over the Department of State and the Central Intelligence Agency which Wall Street seems to exercise....

The influence of establishment insiders over our foreign policy has become a fact of life in our time. This pervasive influence runs contrary to the real long-term national security of our Nation. It is an influence which, if unchecked, could ultimately subvert our constitutional order.

The viewpoint of the establishment today is called globalism. Not so long ago, this viewpoint was called the "one-world" view by its critics. The phrase is no longer fashionable among sophisticates; yet, the phrase "one-world" is still apt because nothing has changed in the minds and actions of those promoting policies consistent with its fundamental tenets.

Mr. President, in the globalist point of view, nation-states and national boundaries do not count for anything. Political philosophies and political principles seem to become simply relative. Indeed, even constitutions are irrelevant to the exercise of power. Liberty and tyranny are viewed as neither necessarily good nor evil, and certainly not a component of policy.

In this point of view, the activities of international financial and industrial forces should be oriented to bringing this one-world design - with a convergence of the Soviet and American systems as its centerpiece - into being. . . . All that matters to this club is the maximization of profits resulting from the practice of what can be described as finance capitalism, a system which rests upon the twin pillars of debt and monopoly. This isn't real capitalism. It is the road to economic concentration and to political slavery.

The road to "political slavery." This is what is really going on in the world. This needs to end......

The source I posted has much more's a very good read! it also has excellent info on some nastiness going on in Canada....I will leave you with this final quote:

"Television commentator Bill Moyers found out during a fifteen-day, globe-spanning trip in the company of David Rockefeller that 'just about a dozen or fifteen individuals made day-to-day decisions that regulated the flow of capital and goods throughout the entire world.'"

Pretty scary stuff.....IT NEEDS TO END!

it seems that before the 1950, alot of politicians and business people talked somewhat openly about the role of secret societies in politics...but nowadays if you even mention a secret society people atomaticaly dismiss ANYTHING you have to say about anything...

i wonder how many current politicians can be liked to some of these societies??

how did it come to this, did it get so far......

Something to chew on:

excerpt from , "The Shadow Government of the United States and the Decline of America" by Richard D. Eastman (November 1994):

CFR control in government actually began in earnest in 1939 by establishing within the U.S. State Department a "Committee on Post-War Problems", the group (staffed and funded by the CFR) which designed the United Nations. (the story of which is contained in State Dept. Publication 2349-"Report To The President On The Results of the San Francisco Conference").

Since WWII, the CFR has filled key positions in virtually every administration since then. Furthermore, since Eisenhower, every man who has won the nomination for either party (except Goldwater in 1964 and Reagan in 1980) has been a member of the CFR:


John W. Davis(1924)
Adlai Stevenson (1952,56)
John F. Kennedy (1960)
Hubert Humphrey (1968)
George McGovern (1972)
Jimmy Carter (1976,80)
Walter Mondale (1984)
Michael Dukakis (1988)
Bill Clinton (1992)

Herbert Hoover (1928,32)
Wendell Wilkie (1940)
Thomas Dewey (1944,48)
Dwight Eisenhower (1952,56)
Richard Nixon (1960,68,72)
Gerald Ford (1976)
George Bush (1988,92) (who was also a director of the CFR 1977-1979)


This comes from a source from it's not updated with info after the Clinton administration...but this: "Since WWII, the CFR has filled key positions in virtually every administration since then. Furthermore, since Eisenhower, every man who has won the nomination for either party (except Goldwater in 1964 and Reagan in 1980) has been a member of the CFR" pretty scary stuff!!

It doesn't appear that our wonderful current president was ever a member of the CFR...but he has surrounded himself with members of the CFR.....i.e. Cheney, Powell, Rice.....

And check this out.....Dubya had Alex Jones arrested for asking this question:

"Sir, shouldn't we abolish the Federal Reserve and the CFR? That's the real reality that none of you will talk about and most of you are members. That's what's destroying this country governor. Don't you stand for America sir? What about the Federal Reserve and the CFR?"

Alex is then grabbed by Texas police, taken outside and handcuffed. The cameraman is threatened as he films the entire incident. Afterwards, Alex was kidnapped and driven around for half an hour before being thrown out on the side of the road. All for the crime of asking a question!


So much for anyone trying to take a stand against the FED and CFR and any other of the Cabals that OWN OUR GOVERNMENT!!

Hey now, let's not go hating on the Borg here. That hurts.

In all seriousness though, I understand what you're saying. I have also been doing some in-depth studies on this lately, and have found some interesting things out.

One of which is that to understand just how much we're controlled, we need to trace the flow of money to it's source. After having done some serious looking, I have come up with The World Bank. This institution singlehandedly controls the flow of money to all nations around the world.

Now, that all by itself should be alarming enough, but it gets much worse. If you look closely, you'll find the name of the President of the World Bank. Digging a little deeper, if we look at a list of members of the CFR, we find that he's number 4335. He was inducted in '85.

Now, what does this leave us with? It leaves us with a huge list of men and women that control all of the wealth on the planet. With said wealth, they in effect control all of the people on the planet, since without money, we have no means by which to do anything. We rely on said money to pay debts that we have incurred, and without it, we would lose everything that we have.

What can we do about it? I'm not sure. If we all band together, and let the world know what's going on, then maybe We the People might have a chance, even though it'll be slim. Slim's better than none in my book. As with anything, education is the impetus for change. We all need to speak out about these kinds of things, so that others may learn what's going on. Will it bring unwanted heat? Quite possibly, but will it be worth it? Hard to say. It all depends on if the People listen to reason.

The truth has been staring us in the face all along, and we've just chosen to ignore it. What does that make us? It makes us acquiescent. We've succumbed to the the same failing that our ancestors fell to, we believed too much in our leaders. Our leaders are just human, as we all are. They are just as easily corrupted as any of us. The key is to diffuse the control so much that no one group has all of the power, and can never have it. Which is why this nation needs to have a government that TRULY represents it's people, rather than the Aristocratic one that currently exists.

What the People really need is a government of, by, and FOR them, as it was intended to be. The founding fathers wanted a direct democracy to start, but they couldn't make it work with the lack of technology at the time. Well, that time has come. It's time we take our voice back. We have a right to be heard, listened to, and obeyed, since we put them there to begin with. They ultimately answer to us, and to no one else, in this realm anyway. It's time we got some answers.

I just want to try and keep this thread towards the top of the forum because it's of huge importance to everyone here. Please take the time to do some self-searching to prove what's been posted here for yourselves. It's important that everyone discover this for themselves firsthand, as it makes the point all that much clearer. Good luck in the search.




I just spotted this story about Paul Wolfowitz, the President of the World Bank. He's in trouble because he's been caught giving jobs to friends of his, just because they're his friends. This is indeed pertinent because if one looks at my first post above this one, they'll see that he's the subject of it.

The question I lay before you now is this, Is this the beginning of a change for our benefit, or just a "changing of the guard", so to speak?

Hey Excitable_Boy:

I was just curious if you could point me to a copy of the full speech that you excerpted there from Former Senator Jesse Helms. If you could link me to a source other than rense (who no longer hosts it on their website) I'd be very appreciative.

Thanks in advance,

Wow. I'd hate to be the only one posting here, but I was wondering if anyone else has been doing any research on this, and also why it's gotten so quiet. Is it just because it's an accepted fact, which needs no supporting arguments? Or is it because people are scared of who might be watching what they say?

Just a curiosity is all.

Not scared, if anything the more I read and the more I wake up the less frightened I become, and the more determined I am to do something.
Their time will come, mark my words,

Brzezinski was actually right. National Sovereignty is no longer a viable political system -- just do a search for some of the Political writings on this subject, I highly recommend Camilleri's "The End of Sovereignty?". In today's world of MNCs, NGO's, the International Economy, the UN and various organisations like it, national sovereignty has become severely undermined.

While I certainly find it entertaining that such names pop up time and time again, I don't think the idea of a global system of government is an all that radical or totalitarian of an idea. I see it as a natural progression away from a deeply flawed system of states.

Edit: Oh yes Paul Wolfowitz goes way back. Way past PNAC too! Though not as far back as some of the Rockerfellers.
