The Trilateral Commission -- A Council on Foreign Relations Front Organization
Monday, March 15, 1999, an AP article titled "Trilateral Commission reaches out to others," was published on the Tampa Bay Tribune website. The article is about the Council on Foreign Relations -- the real story is hidden between the lines.
The Trilateral Commission is a Council on Foreign Relations front organization, established to influence American foreign policy, and facilitate Council on Foreign Relations expansion into Europe, Canada and Japan. The Council on Foreign Relations uses front organizations to protect it from connection to illegalities that could lead to a Congressional investigation.
Recent economic upheavals in the Far East and Russia have made them ripe for Council on Foreign Relations expansion. Chinese, Korean, Russian, and Ukrainian movers and shakers were invited to the Trilateral Commission meeting to participate in "discussion-groups." The material generated will be used to prepare propaganda designed to influence United States national policy makers to support foreign policy favorable to Council on Foreign Relations controlled corporate expansion into those nations, and manipulate United States public opinion to favor those policies.
The Trilateral Commission was not the first front organization used to cover-up Council on Foreign Relations manipulation of U.S. foreign policy concerning Russia and the Far East. In 1951 a Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Internal Security, known as the McCarren Committee, investigated another Council on Foreign Relations front organization, the American Institute of Pacific Relations, for its role in controlling and coordinating actions favorable to the Soviet Union, the expansion of international communism, and the loss of China to the Communists.
The Council on Foreign Relations established the American Institute of Pacific Relations in 1925. Morgan and Rockefeller controlled Wall Street interests, foundations , and corporations closely allied to them (including Standard Oil, International Telephone and Telegraph, and Chase National Bank) provided the funding. The Institute influenced United States policy towards Russia, China, and Japan, and helped establish Council on Foreign Relations controlled corporations in these areas.
The McCarren Committee never investigated the Council on Foreign Relations. The investigation created a battle between the "Left" and the "Right" over communism, that still serves to confuse Americans to this day, and divert attention from the organization responsible for the problems-- the Council on Foreign Relations.1
The article quotes Paul Volcker. The article tells us the Trilateral Commission was founded by David Rockefeller. The article doesn't mention Volcker and Rockefeller are Council on Foreign Relations members. Or, that Council on Foreign Relations members Zbigniew Brzezinski, and Jimmy Carter helped Rockefeller found the Trilateral Commission.
The article tells us, "The commission, founded 26 years ago by banker David Rockefeller, includes more than 300 mostly private citizens from the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan." The article warps the truth by failing to mention that over 90% of the members are American citizens that belong to the Council on Foreign Relations.
Council membership is by invitation only, and restricted to American citizens. The Trilateral Commission is an inner circle of Council on Foreign Relations members.
The RoundTable website contains a 1992 list of Trilateral Commission members. It contains 337 names, 316 are found on various Council on Foreign Relations (1992,1990,1988,1987,1985,and 1984) membership lists. The other 21 people are either Americans not found on these Council on Foreign Relations rosters, or are European and Japanese members.
The article tells us, "`The Trilateral Commission doesn't make any recommendations on anything,'' Volcker said - particularly not on reform of exchange rates or the world financial system, which were among topics briefly discussed at the meeting." This is a lie. Council on Foreign Relations founding fathers founded the Federal Reserve Bank in 1913. Paul Volcker, and Alan Greenspan, are just two Council on Foreign Relations members that chaired the FED. If exchange rates and the world financial systems were among topics discussed information from those discussions will be used to generate propaganda focused at influential decision makers, and the public to manipulate them to accept CFR/Trilateral Commission policy concerning exchange rates and the world financial system. ( See "Council on Foreign Relations & The Federal Reserve" )
Why haven't knowledgeable economists such as Volcker, Greenspan, and John Kenneth Galbraith, ever written a book exposing the Council on Foreign Relations effect on the economy? Is it because they belong to the Council on Foreign Relations and are playing an active role in a conspiracy to keep the Council's sponsorship of psycho-political operations a secret?
The article tells us, Volcker said regarding the purpose of the meetings, ``I would hope that there is some kind of changing in thinking, a convergence of thought, because people are affected by the discussions, but it's not directed deliberately towards a particular end, other than the fostering of democracy and economic development around the world.'' Volcker is lying. The discussions are deliberately directed towards a particular end. That end is to influence the national policy of the United States and other nations to maximize Council member controlled industry profits, destroy national sovereignty, and unite all nations under one world government, controlled by members of the Council on Foreign Relations and their branch organizations in other nations.
The Council on Foreign Relations operates by influencing public opinion. Well planned psycho-political operations are focused at influential decision makers. The operations manipulate decision makers to influence national policy to maximize Council member controlled industry profits. Council member controlled medicine, munitions, media, banking, energy, and food industries profit most during periods of unrest and war.
The current plan to bomb Serbia, is the latest example of this sort of Council on Foreign Relations psycho-political operation. On March 18th, Council on Foreign Relations member Madeleine Albright announced, "..if Belgrade doesn't reverse course the Serbs alone will be responsible for the consequences and I would like to remind President Milosevic that NATO stands ready to take whatever measures are necessary." In Council on Foreign Relations members Albright and Clinton's book that means bombing the Serbs.
Increasingly, it appears, key members of Congress are beginning to suspect that they have been lied to by the Clinton White House and are showing signs of real concern that the entire nation is about to become perpetrators of an attack upon a sovereign nation that could involve not peacekeeping but guerrilla warfare. Council on Foreign Relation member Clinton's Whitehouse contains 300 or more Council on Foreign Relations members he appointed to the CIA, NSC, State Department, and other agencies. President George Bush, was a Council on Foreign Relations director from 1977-1979, 300 or more CFR members were a part of the Bush administration. Who's orchestrating the lying, Albright, Clinton, the Clinton Whitehouse, or the Council on Foreign Relations?
The psycho-political operations are developed through "discussion-groups." Council members attending the "discussion-groups" study different policy issues exploring and presenting divergent views. The discussion is recorded and a digest of the discussion is produced. The material is used to create news articles and essays designed to appeal to well targeted influential decision makers in diplomacy and international relations. The Council on Foreign Relations member controlled media industry broadcasts the propaganda. "Discussion-group" sessions are closed to news coverage, but are attended by Council on Foreign Relations members who are prominent news and media figures, academics, and industrial and political leaders. . Security is usually tight, keeping the general public and news media out of the discussion. "Outsiders" who show up are identified, photographed, and added to a list of potential "security" threats.
Any connections to the Council on Foreign Relations are edited out of the "news." Council on Foreign Relations success is largely due to keeping its identity a secret. Adopting an organization of overlapping circles helps them do this. The Trilateral Commission is one inner circle of Council on Foreign Relations members used to extend its influence abroad and to act as a cover to protect it from the scrutiny of a congressional investigation.
The Council on Foreign Relations evolved from the Institute of International Affairs. British and American branches of the Institute of International Affairs were established on May 30, 1919, at a meeting in the Hotel Majestic in Paris, by American and British Paris Peace Conference delegates who belonged to the American and British branches of a secret-organization founded by Cecil Rhodes.
"Discussion-groups" were a Rhodes' Secret-Society instrument developed and used to influence public opinion, and adopted by the Institutes of International Affairs. "Study-Groups" are formalized "discussion-groups" used by the Council on Foreign Relations and its branch organizations in other nations; Council controlled think tanks such as, Rand, Brookings, Center for Strategic International Studies, and the Paul H. Nitze School. of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University; and, Council controlled governmental agencies like. the Central Intelligence Agency, and the State Department. The meetings are limited to a small group of experts. Tight security is provided. Discussions and material generated are often classified. The material is used to produce classified reports and digests meant to influence select groups of high-ranking public officials, as well as articles, essays and stories meant to influence the public to accept the proposed national policy decisions.
By 1936 Institutes of International Affairs were established in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, and Newfoundland. Each Institute , under the guise of world peace, concentrated on influencing national-policy to achieve unity of all nations under one world government. By controlling public opinion tension is created between nations wary of losing their national identity, mores, and cultures, resulting in a state of perpetual warfare used to justify peace-time National Security Emergency measures and large military budgets. The groups goal was to maximize Institute member industry profits by selling both guns and butter.
In 1918 a group of international lawyers and high-ranking officers of banking, manufacturing, trading and financing companies, headed by Theodore Roosevelt's Secretary of State Elihu Root, founded the Council on Foreign Relations. Its purpose was to promote commerce through contact with distinguished foreign visitors. After returning from the Paris Peace conference the American Institute of International Affairs approached the Council on Foreign Relations and proposed a merger. On July 29, 1921, the American Institute of International Affairs merged with the Council on Foreign Relations adopting their name. The new Council on Foreign Relations adopted the American Institute of International Affairs policy -- unity of all nations under one world government.
In 1925 ten independent national councils holding territory in the Pacific Area were created to extend the influence of the Royal Institute of International Affairs and Council on Foreign Relations into Russia and the Far East. Institutes of Pacific Relations were established in an interlocking fashion with four existing Institutes of International Affairs (Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand) and the Council on Foreign Relations in the United States. Institutes of Pacific Relations were established in five additional countries 1. China, 2. Japan, 3. France, 4. the Netherlands, 5. the Soviet Union. By 1939 the Institutes of Pacific Relations in the four British areas had merged with the local Institutes of International affairs. The American Institute of Pacific Relations remained a Council on Foreign Relations front organization until it was eventually dissolved after the McCarren Committee investigation in 1951. The Institutes of Pacific Relations held joint meetings every two years.
The Pacific Council was a seven member Institute of Pacific Relations inner circle set up in 1927. Members of the four Commonwealth Institutes of Pacific Relations (Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand) also belonged to the Institute of International Affairs.
The other three members belonged to the Chinese, Japanese, and American Institutes of Pacific Relations. Jerome D. Greene, of the American Institute of Pacific Relations, had attended the Paris Peace Conference, and after the conference was one of the early figures in the establishment of the Council on Foreign Relations. The Pacific Council planned and coordinated psycho-political operations designed to achieve the unity of all nations under one world government. One operation focused on extending the organizations influence and control throughout the League of Nations.
Jerome D. Greene was born in Japan, his parents were missionaries. Greene graduated Harvard Law, and became one of Harvard's lawyers. Through contacts made at Harvard he was introduced to John D. Rockefeller who made him his assistant, and gave him trustee positions at the Rockefeller Institute, Rockefeller Foundation, and on the Rockefeller General Education Board. Greene also went to work for the a Boston investment banking firm who sent him to their London branch. As an investment banker Greene sold millions of dollars of fraudulent securities for Ivar Krueger a wealthy Swedish match manufacture. Krueger committed suicide because of the fraud.
The annual Trilateral Commission meeting in Washington DC, is nothing more than a Council on Foreign Relations discussion group. Influential European, Canadian, and Japanese citizens were invited to join the Trilateral Commission so that they could help shape United States Foreign policy and participate in the profits of Council on Foreign Relations controlled Companies in their nations. Now, the Trilateral Commission is inviting Chinese, Korean, Russian, and Ukrainian movers and shakers to join in discussions that will be used to create psycho-political operations to influence United States Foreign policy allowing the Council on Foreign Relations to establish and control corporations is their countries.
If any wrong-doings resulting from the psycho-political operations are discovered Congress will focus their investigation on the Trilateral Commission and not the Council on Foreign Relations.If such an investigation does take place, you will find, as in past congressional investigations, such as the Rockefeller Commission , the Church Committee, the Warren Commission, and the Tower Commission, that many of the Congressional investigators are members of the Council on Foreign Relations.
When the investigators, and those investigated, are closely connected, and the investigators don't disqualify themselves because of prejudice or personal interest hasn't a crime called conspiracy to obstruct justice been committed? If the investigators are high-ranking public officials aren't the crimes high crimes, that call for impeachment and trial before Congress? Have you requested your elected representatives to call for a Congressional investigation of the Council on Foreign Relations?
FYI: Can any of you speak Greek? A friend sent a link to a website about Athanasios Strigas. The website seems to be a work in progress. The website says," Athanasios Strigas is an agent of NATO and the Trilateral Commission and has written more than 8 big books about the Trilateral Commission and the politics in general...His books are written in Hellenic and are related mainly to the connection and the involvement of the Bilderberg Club in the Hellenic politics and political events (Turkish invasion in Cyprus,Military junta etc.). Nevertheless they give very much information on the Trilateral Commission,Bilderberg Club,NSA,NATO and the secret agencies." The website contains Library of Congress listings of Strigas's books. The website is at [http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Forum/8604/strigas.zip].
The AP article, modified to identify, Council on Foreign Relations members follows:
>Trilateral Commission reaches out to others
> WASHINGTON (AP) - The Trilateral Commission, long an exclusive club of influential citizens from the world's most powerful nations, is reaching out to other countries to help find ways to foster democracy and economic freedom.
>While leading figures from nonmember countries like China, Korea, Russia and Ukraine cannot become members of the commission, which meets annually to discuss the future of the world, they sat at the table for this year's meetings in Washington, which ended Monday.
>``We have taken steps importantly to extend the range of the discussion ... to people outside the traditional trilateral areas,'' said former [COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS MEMBER ] Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, leader of the U.S. contingent in one of the world's most prestigious gatherings. The commission, founded 26 years ago by banker [COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS MEMBER ]David Rockefeller, includes more than 300 mostly private citizens from the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan.
> [COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS MEMBER ] Volcker, at a closing news conference that attracted only a handful of journalists, said three days of discussions that involved about half the council's membership reached no conclusions. Sessions are closed to news coverage, although security is not tight and some media figures belong to the commission.
>Membership includes academics and industrial and former political leaders. Current members of national governments are excluded.
>``The Trilateral Commission doesn't make any recommendations on anything,'' Volcker said - particularly not on reform of exchange rates or the world financial system, which were among topics briefly discussed at the meeting.
>Otto Graf Lambsdorff, European chairman and former German Bundestag member, said China was the focus of much discussion, again with no consensus reached. He said, however, that no one opposed cooperation with China and no one said China should not respect human rights.
> [COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS MEMBER ]Volcker said the participation of representatives from several nonmember countries enhanced the discussions and will continue at future annual sessions, held alternatively in the United States, Japan and Europe.
>``You have the opportunity of changing thinking,'' said [COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS MEMBER ] Volcker, assessing the value of the meetings. ``I would hope that there is some kind of changing in thinking, a convergence of thought, because people are affected by the discussions, but it's not directed deliberately towards a particular end, other than the fostering of democracy and economic development around the world.''
>The Japanese commission chairman, Yotaro Kobayashi, head of Fuji Xerox Co., Ltd., said, ``Having more participants from outside ... has only enriched the course of the discussions.''

Title-50 War and National Defense § 783 states - "It shall be unlawful for any person knowingly to combine, conspire, or agree with any other person to perform any act which would substantially contribute to the establishment within the United States of a totalitarian dictatorship, the direction and control of which is to be vested in, or exercised by or under the domination of control of, any foreign government."
The Council on Foreign Relations are in violation of Title-50 War and National Defense § 783. The Council on Foreign Relations has unlawfully and knowingly combined, conspired, and agreed to substantially contribute to the establishment of one world order under the totalitarian dictatorship, the direction and the control of members of Council on Foreign Relations, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, and members of their branch organizations in various nations throughout the world. That is totalitarianism on a global scale.
