According to the website:

The Trilateral Commission was formed in 1973 by private citizens of Japan, Europe (European Union countries), and North America (United States and Canada) to foster closer cooperation among these core democratic industrialized areas of the world with shared leadership responsibilities in the wider international system. Originally established for three years, our work has been renewed for successive triennia (three-year periods), most recently for a triennium to be completed in 2003.
When the first triennium of the Trilateral Commission was launched in 1973, the most immediate purpose was to draw together—at a time of considerable friction among governments—the highest level unofficial group possible to look together at the key common problems facing our three areas. At a deeper level, there was a sense that the United States was no longer in such a singular leadership position as it had been in earlier post-World War II years, and that a more shared form of leadership—including Europe and Japan in particular—would be needed for the international system to navigate successfully the major challenges of the coming years.
As the 2000-03 triennium begins, two strong convictions guide our thinking. First, the Trilateral Commission remains as important as ever in helping our countries fulfill their shared leadership responsibilities in the wider international system and, second, its framework needs to be widened to reflect broader changes in the world. Thus, the Japan Group has become a Pacific Asia Group, and Mexican members are being added to the North American Group. The European Group continues to widen in line with the enlargement of the EU. We are also continuing in the new triennium our practice of inviting a number of participants from other key areas.
The “growing interdependence” that so impressed the founders of the Trilateral Commission in the early 1970s is deepening into “globalization.” The need for shared thinking and leadership by the Trilateral countries, who (along with the principal international organizations) remain the primary anchors of the wider international system, has not diminished but, if anything, intensified. At the same time, their leadership must change to take into account the dramatic transformation of the international system. As relations with other countries become more mature—and power more diffuse—the leadership tasks of the original Trilateral countries need to be carried out with others to an increasing extent.
The members of the Trilateral Commission are about 350 distinguished leaders in business, media, academia, public service (excluding current national Cabinet Ministers), labor unions, and other non-governmental organizations from the three regions. The regional Chairmen, Deputy Chairmen, and Directors constitute the leadership of the Trilateral Commission, along with an Executive Committee including about 40 other members.
The annual meeting of Trilateral Commission members rotates among the three regions. It was held in Tokyo in 2000, in Washington, D.C., in 1999, and in Berlin in 1998; and it will be held in London in 2001. The agendas for these meetings have addressed a wide range of issues, an indication of how broadly we see the partnership among our countries. A publication on the annual meeting (Trialogue) draws together each year’s presentations.
The project work of the Trilateral Commission generally involves teams of authors from our three regions working together for a year or so on draft reports which are discussed in draft form in the annual meeting and then published. The authors typically consult with many others in the course of their work. The task force reports (Triangle Papers) to the Trilateral Commission have covered a wide range of topics.
The regional groups within the Trilateral Commission carry on some activities of their own. The European Group, with its secretariat based in Paris, has an annual weekend meeting each fall. The North American Group, with its secretariat based in New York, occasionally gathers with a special speaker for a dinner or luncheon event. The new Pacific Asia Group, with its secretariat based in Tokyo, had an inaugural regional meeting in November 2000 in Seoul. Each region carries on its own fund-raising to provide the financial support needed for the Trilateral Commission’s work.
The Founder and Honorary chairman of the TRILATERAL COMMISSION 2001 is DAVID ROCKEFELLER.

The biography of DAVID ROCKEFELLER, as written on the website is as follows: “David Rockefeller is Founder and Honorary Chairman of the Trilateral Commission. He is also Non-Executive Chairman of Rockefeller Center Properties Trust and RCP Holdings. Mr. Rockefeller serves as Honorary Chairman of the Americas Society, the Council on Foreign Relations and Rockefeller University. He is also Chairman of the Rockefeller University Council, and Chairman Emeritus of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. A graduate of Harvard University and the University of Chicago (Ph.D., 1940), Mr. Rockefeller served as an officer of the Chase Manhattan Bank from 1946 to 1981. He was Chairman and Chief Executive Officer from 1969 until 1980, and continued as Chairman until his retirement in 1981. Since that date he has been Chairman of the bank’s International Advisory Committee. Mr. Rockefeller has also been involved in numerous other business, cultural and educational organizations. His publications include Unused Resources and Economic Waste (1940) and Creative Management in Banking (1964). From Henry Kissinger’s 25th tribute to David Rockefeller on the occasion of the U.S. Group’s 25th Anniversary Evening, December 1, 1998: “David’s function in our society is to recognize great tasks, to overcome the obstacles, to help find and inspire the people to carry them out, and to do it with remarkable delicacy....”
For the 25th Anniversary of the Trilateral Commision, HENRY KISSINGER wrote a tribute to DAVID ROCKEFELLER:
Henry Kissinger Chairman, Kissinger Associates
In 1973, when I served as Secretary of State, David Rockefeller showed up in my office one day to tell me that he thought I needed a little help. I must confess, the thought was not self-evident to me at the moment. He proposed to form a group of Americans, Europeans, and Japanese to look ahead into the future. And I asked him, “Who’s going to run this for you, David?” He said, “Zbig Brzezinski.” (I must ruin Zbig’s reputation here by saying usually he and I agreed. We managed to hide it very well.) I had worked with Nelson for many years; I had first known David at the Council on Foreign Relations in the ’50s, and I knew that Rockefeller meant it. He picked something that is important; and they got the best man to do it for them. When I thought about it, there actually was a need.
We were in the middle of the energy crisis, totally unforeseen by us. The last study that had been made in our government said the oil price might reach $5 by 1980; it had reached $12 at that point. All the industrialized democracies needed to find some method of concerted action, a common approach. And so, I encouraged David to go ahead, though I deserve no credit whatever for the consequences because David and Zbig and David’s Co-Chairmen created what we have today. Any society needs some people who bridge the gap between where they are and where they should be going—people with vision and courage—and the Trilateral Commission fulfilled a crucial role in that respect....
David, he is now over 80, has done great things in his life, but he is a little bit naive. He believes that any good idea can be implemented. And, by God, you have to be a little bit innocent to do great things. Cynics don’t build cathedrals. David’s function in our society is to recognize great tasks, to overcome the obstacles, to help find and inspire the people to carry them out, and to do it with remarkable delicacy....
David, I respect you and admire you for what you have done with the Trilateral Commission. You and your family have represented what goes for an aristocracy in our country—a sense of obligation not only to make it materially possible, but to participate yourself in what you have made possible and to infuse it with the enthusiasm, the innocence, and the faith that I identify with you and, if I may say so, with your family. And so I would like to propose a toast that this be preserved to us for a long time.

The strategy of the ONE WORLD GLOBALISTS attempting to establish a ONE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM would involve funneling American and European consumer money to Japanese industrialists and Arab oil princes who would promptly use the money to acquire Western companies and real estate.
In the 1970s the Arab leaders united together to impose an effective oil embargo in 1973, because of the 4th Arab-Israeli War and the World’s support for Israel. The common denominator, besides Islamic States uniting against Israel and the United States (for their support of Israel) was oil, which was being explored, drilled, and marketed for them by the AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN OIL CARTELS. All that Arab leaders had to do was sit back and watch as their partners made them rich. The fact was, and continues to be, that the ARAB PRINCES owe most of their wealth to THE ROCKEFELLERS and their allies, such as the BECHTEL GROUP, who built up Saudi Arabia and Kuwait from the ground up.
Some of this oil money was immediately funneled back into American and European superbanks, such as CHASE MANHATTAN, a Rockefeller bank, with a few of the Arab sheiks actually becoming vice-presidents of these same banks. Much of the rest of the money was reinvested into American industry and real estate.
THE OPEC ENERGY CRISIS in the 1970s would also have the effect of turning Japan into an industrial giant. Japan had the compact cars ready to go. American consumers, forced to cut back their energy consumption, flocked to purchase these inexpensive, fuel-efficient cars. Japanese auto manufacturers could hardly keep up with the demand. All of these activities would be protected under our liveral free-trade laws. In the meantime, the U.S. auto industry was plunged into a deep recession from which it has never fully recovered.
Japanese industrialists would invest their fortunes in other budding Japanese industries. Before long the U.S. was being flooded by inexpensive imported products, ranging from consumer electronics to industrial robots. A good part of the money from these profits, like the Arab oil money, has been used to buy real estate in the United States and throughout the rest of the world. The same is true today. It never ends!
In the Year 2000-2001, the beginning of the 21st Century would experience the power-hungry capitalist groups cashing in on their Globalization Agenda. Although these groups would all claim an attempt to benefit the poor, the GLOBAL companies laid off thousands of employees from the end of the Year 2000 throughout the Year 2001. A website listing these thousands of worldwide layoffs, demonstrated a financial control of the stock market, which had plowed the Dow Jones Industrial Average from over 13,000 to about 9,600 points on March 21, 2001.
As it turned out, the oil crisis in the 1970s and the beginnings of the 21st Century would serve to build the New World Order at a rate even faster than insiders of the Trilateral Commission could have hoped for. By working through Japanese and Arab partners, the GLOBALISTS would be able to advance their agenda with little suspicion.
The redistribution of the world’s wealth would simply be used to foster a new era of GLOBAL ECONOMIC INTERDEPENDENCE, a concept that would prove useful in laying the groundwork for world government.
To accommodate these efforts, David Rockefeller formed the TRILATERAL COMMISSION in 1973.
The purpose of the Trilateral Commission would be to promote world government by encouraging ECONOMIC INTERDEPENDENCE among the superpowers. Steering the economies of the member nations into a position where they would be completely intertwined, the Trilateral Commission augments the regionalization efforts of its sister organizations, THE BILDERBERGERS and THE CLUB OF ROME. Rockefeller’s main accomplice in this endeavor would be Zbigniew Brzezinksi, who drafted the Commission’s charter and went on to become the organization’s first director (1973-1976).
Guided by MASONIC/NEW AGE beliefs, the Trilateral Commission (TC) imitated the structure of the Council on Foreign Relations. The TC is led by many of the same people, espouses the same philosophies, and is funded by the same sources, with the FORD FOUNDATION having been the Trilateral Commission's largest contributor. In fact, all 8 American representatives to the founding meeting of the Commission, held at ROCKEFELLER’S ESTATE, were members of the CFR.
Like the CFR, the Trilateral Commission is headquartered in New York City. However, unlike the CFR, whose membership is drawn only from the United States, the Trilateral Commission is composed of leaders from the world’s three economic superpowers—North America, Western Europe, and Japan. Thus, the term ‘TRILATERAL’ defines the geography. These are also the first three economic regions (kingdoms) listed on the Club of Rome’s global model.
Remember, the original strategy of these organizations was and is to divide up the map of the world into TEN ECONOMIC REGIONS:
The Trilateral Commission is one of many organizations developed to create this REGIONAL ECONOMIC interdependence. Unlike the CFR, which has over 2,500 members, the Commission has only 325 members from North America, Europe, and Japan.
The Commission’s North American chairman continues to be a Rockefeller who is joined with a European chairman.
On December 15, 1987 Senator Helms made an urgent appeal to his colleagues These are some excerpts from his speech:
“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 (DEMOCRATIC PARTY). Among this group we find THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE, THE DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE, THE MONEY CENTER BANKS and MULTI-NATIONAL CORPORATIONS, 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 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 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…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.”
Now we understand who the ROLLERS AND SHAKERS of the GLOBAL ECONOMY are. This is clearly the workings of ONE mind and we know who this ONE mind is:
“The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads THE WHOLE WORLD astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.” We can be 100% positive that SATAN and his angels are on the earth and these organizations are a part of the great GLOBAL DECEPTION that is preparing us for the fulfillment of Revelation 20 where Satan will “go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the world to gather them for battle.”
Nobody can BUY OR SELL without this ONE WORLD ECONOMY and all of us are trapped under the GLOBALIST vision for a MASONIC NEW WORLD/AGE ORDER.
The beast, Allah, and Muhammad, the false prophet, as well as the Syrian King Yasser Arafat who has pitched his tents between the seas at the Beautiful Holy Mountain of Jerusalem, has been supported and financed by SATAN’S NETWORK. My viewpoint is unpopular to the ONE WORLD agenda, but my stereotypical response to these groups is that they have fulfilled the words of the prophets and are fulfilling them now. The nations in the four corners of the world are DECEIVED. The NEW WORLD needs a villain like Sadaam Hussein, who will unite nations together for a common purpose to wipe out evil and establish the good of a GLOBALIST CONSPIRACY meant to turn nation against nation and then unite them into ONE WORLD.
No one can buy or sell without OPEC, or the GLOBALIST/CAPITALIST agenda and it is up to us as individuals to oppose those who claim to be “open-minded think-tanks” and are destroying the planet that God created.
The Bush administration (1991) appointed more than 350 CFR and TC members who held positions within the executive branch. Top-level Bush officials who were past or present members of the CFR and TC included: GEORGE H.W. BUSH, President, Brent Snowcroft, National Security Advisor, RICHARD CHENEY, Secretary of Defense, Dick Thornburgh, Attorney General, COLIN POWELL, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Carla Hills, U.S. Trade Representative.
NOTE: It is possible for anyone to belong to these organizations without understanding their purpose or mission. Some people may join the Trilateral Commission or Council on Foreign Relations to advance their careers, not knowing the full implications, dangers, or hidden agendas from those who are the sponsors of these organizations. It may very well be that COLIN POWELL and GEORGE BUSH are genuinely Christian men who are no longer affiliated with these groups, even though they were former members. Why else would George Bush Jr. push for a FEDERAL TAX CUT, or grant the military $6 Billion Dollars and Religious Organizations $4 Billion during the first 100 days of his Presidency? Of course, we understand that no matter what decisions George Bush (2001) could make, the same GLOBAL conspiracy moves forward and neither the President nor the Congress has the power to stop it—not without a majority vote which would move America back towards ISOLATIONISM or NATIONALISM, being an independent superpower. For this to happen, we would have to pay off the $6 Trillion Dollar National Debt.
Whether or not the world community is aware, the same GLOBAL agenda always moves forward through a NETWORK of companies and there is very little any American President can do to stop investors from plundering the Stock Market. MONEY rules the game.
Only God knows their hearts and it was and is possible for righteous men to catch onto the AGENDA and then resign from the membership to promote an outside lobbyist movement, which would seek to repel what they were once a part of. However, the NEW WORLD ORDER is so huge with so much political and corporate influence FINANCIALLY, that it would be extremely difficult for any member of Congress or World Leader to oppose the GLOBAL interests of the wealthy.
THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT is another division of the executive branch, which has been dominated by the CFR and the TC.
GLOBALISTS within the TREASURY DEPARTMENT have been assisted by the efforts of their partners at THE FEDERAL RESERVE, including FEDERAL RESERVE CHAIRMAN ALAN GREENSPAN.
Through the TREASURY DEPARTMENT and the FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM, the ROCKEFELLERS and their ALLIES have been able to direct America’s fiscal and monetary policies, making the U.S. economic policies harmonious with their own.
What about the Treasury Department and how does our FEDERAL RESERVE NOTE MONEY get printed? As states: “The Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP), located in Washington, D.C., is responsible for designing and printing our paper currency. There is also a satellite production facility located in Fort Worth, Texas, which began operations in January 1991. Every day, the BEP prints approximately 22.5 million paper notes in denominations ranging from $1 to $100.
“The BEP produces the currency notes as ordered by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. Responsibility for the replacement of unfit notes rests with the Federal Reserve Banks. When commercial banks receive unfit (soiled, worn, or torn) currency notes, the banks return the currency to the Federal Reserve bank. The Federal Reserve destroys these notes and replaces them with new bills.
“During fiscal year 1992, for example, the BEP produced approximately 8.5 billion currency notes. That same year, the Federal Reserve withdrew from circulation and replaced about 7.5 billion notes. In past years, approximately 95 percent of the currency notes produced were to replace worn and damaged notes removed from circulation. The remaining 5 percent of the notes produced were new currency notes that the Federal Reserve issued into the economy to increase the money supply. You can view our Currency Production Statistics fact sheet. It shows yearly currency production totals for each denomination of United States paper currency.”
“The Secretary of the Treasury is the principal economic advisor to the President and plays a critical role in policy-making by bringing an economic and government financial policy perspective to issues facing the government. The Secretary is responsible for formulating and recommending domestic and international financial, economic, and tax policy, participating in the formulation of broad fiscal policies that have general significance for the economy, and managing the public debt. The Secretary oversees the activities of the Department in carrying out its major law enforcement responsibilities; in serving as the financial agent for the United States Government; and in manufacturing coins and currency. “The Chief Financial Officer of the government, the Secretary serves as Chairman Pro Tempore of the President's Economic Policy Council, Chairman of the Boards and Managing Trustee of the Social Security and Medicare Trust Funds, and as U.S. Governor of the INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND, the INTERNATIONAL BANK for Reconstruction and Development, the INTER-AMERICAN Development Bank, the ASIAN DEVELOPMENT BANK, and the EUROPEAN BANK for Reconstruction and Development.” For more information on U.S. TREASURY DEPARTMENT you can visit
In addition to foreign affairs and economic policy, key positions dealing with U.S. NATIONAL SECURITY have been held by the insiders of these elite organizations. Every U.S. defense secretary of since 1945 has belonged either to the Council on Foreign Relations or the Trilateral Commission. They have also extended their NEW AGE efforts in the Defense Department with the control of other strategic military posts. For example, every Supreme Allied Commander in Europe has been a member of the CFR or TC.
Every U.S. Ambassador to NATO has been a member of the CFR or TC as well. And the CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY (CIA) which is so critical to the United States national defense, has also been dominated by CFR and TC members, with nine of its thirteen directors having been CFR members.
Almost every U.S. President since World War II has either been a FREEMASON, a member of the CFR, or a member of the Trilateral Commission. GEORGE BUSH, 1991, was one of the most respected FREEMASONS ever to have attained the position of President. In addition to belonging to the SKULL AND BONES SOCIETY, a secret society at YALE UNIVERSITY, Bush has served as DIRECTOR OF THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS from 1977-1979 and was listed by the TRILATERAL COMMISSION as a “Former Member in Public Service.” Ron Rosenbaum, a writer for Esquire Magazine, revealed in a 1977 article that the Skull and Bones was linked to the Illuminati. The Skull and Bones also happens to be one of the secret symbols of FREEMASONRY.
The following is a list of presidents along with their past organizational affiliations:
Not only have our presidents belonged to these organizations, but the candidates running on the opposing tickets have, almost without exception, been members as well. Membership in these organizations has been mandatory for running for the U.S. Presidency or for being promoted to a high position in the Government. It really doesn’t matter who gets elected, the same MASONIC agenda moves forward, because candidates from both parties are consistently drawn from the same school of thought – GLOBALISM, NEW WORLD ORDER, ONE WORLD. see also United States Presidents and the Masonic Power Structure

Newspaper and Magazine publications are often paid hundreds of thousands of dollars by industries that are all interconnected with the GLOBALIST agendas. The Rockefeller oil companies, banks, and blue-chip corporations have bought advertising space and along with financially controlling the major networks, newspapers, and magazines, the Rockefellers also have a powerful influence in the BOOK PUBLISHING INDUSTRY.
The following book publishers have been represented on the Council on Foreign Relations:
How many published textbooks have been influenced by the GENERAL EDUCATION BOARD (GEB), which was formed by John D. Rockefeller in 1902? Between 1902 and 1907, John D. Rockefeller, Sr. contributed $43 million dollars to the General Education Board. From 1902 to 1930, the Rockefellers contributed over $2 billion dollars to promote their MASONIC agenda within education. According to Gary Allen, who wrote The Rockefeller File, “The Carnegie-Rockefeller complex supplied 20% of the total income of colleges and universities and became in fact, if not in name, a sort of U.S. Ministry of Education.”
THE NATIONAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION (NEA), was also financed by the Rockefeller and Carnegie Foundations. The Rockefellers used their money to gain control of America’s Educational Institutions, spending millions of dollars on rewriting history books and creating textbooks.
