Obama and the Tri­lat­eral Commission

Since Jimmy Carter in 1976, the Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion has exe­cuted a hege­mony over each Admin­is­tra­tion, using their power and influ­ence to fur­ther their own narrow, self-interested goals. The first Obama admin­is­tra­tion was no dif­ferent. As I wrote in Obama: Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion Endgame,

For anyone who doubts the Commission’s con­tin­uing influ­ence on Obama, con­sider that he has already appointed no less than eleven mem­bers of the Com­mis­sion to top-level and key posi­tions in his Administration.

According to offi­cial Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion mem­ber­ship lists, there are only 87 mem­bers from the United States (the other 337 mem­bers are from other regions). Thus, in less than two weeks since his inau­gu­ra­tion, Obama’s appoint­ments encom­pass more than 12% of Commission’s entire U.S. membership.

Is this a mere coin­ci­dence or is it a con­tin­u­a­tion of dom­i­nance over the Exec­u­tive Branch since 1976? (For impor­tant back­ground, read The Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion: Usurping Sov­er­eignty.)

  • Sec­re­tary of Trea­sury, Tim Gei­thner
  • Ambas­sador to the United Nations, Susan Rice
  • National Secu­rity Advisor, Gen. James L. Jones
  • Deputy National Secu­rity Advisor, Thomas Donilon
  • Chairman, Eco­nomic Recovery Com­mittee, Paul Volker
  • Director of National Intel­li­gence, Admiral Dennis C. Blair
  • Assis­tant Sec­re­tary of State, Asia & Pacific,  Kurt M. Campbell
  • Deputy Sec­re­tary of State, James Stein­berg
  • State Depart­ment, Spe­cial Envoy, Richard Haass
  • State Depart­ment, Spe­cial Envoy, Dennis Ross
  • State Depart­ment, Spe­cial Envoy, Richard Hol­brooke

There are many other inci­dental links to the Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion, for instance,

Sec­re­tary of State Hillary Clinton is mar­ried to Com­mis­sion member William Jef­ferson Clinton.

Gei­thner‘s informal group of advi­sers include E. Gerald Cor­rigan, Paul Volker, Alan Greenspan and Peter G. Peterson, among others. His first job after col­lege was with Henry Kissinger at Kissinger Associates.

Brent Scow­croft has been an unof­fi­cial adviser to Obama and was mentor to Defense Sec­re­tary Robert Gates.

Robert Zoelick is cur­rently pres­i­dent of the World Bank

Lau­rence Sum­mers, White House Eco­nomic Adviser, was men­tored by former Trea­sury Sec­re­tary Robert Rubin during the Clinton administration.

There are many other such links, but these are enough for you to get the idea of what’s going on here.

Ana­lyze the positions

Notice that five of the Tri­lat­eral appointees involve the State Depart­ment, where for­eign policy is cre­ated and imple­mented. Hillary Clinton is cer­tainly in line with these poli­cies because her hus­band, Bill Clinton, is also a member.

What is more impor­tant than eco­nomic recovery? Paul Volker is the answer.

What is more impor­tant than national intel­li­gence? Gen. James Jones, Thomas Donilon and Adm. Dennis Blair hold the top three positions.

What is more impor­tant than the Trea­sury and the saving of our finan­cial system? Tim­othy Gei­thner says he has the answers.

The State Depart­ment is vir­tu­ally dom­i­nated by Tri­lat­erals: Kurt Camp­bell, James Stein­berg, Richard Haass, Dennis Ross and Richard Hol­brooke.

This leaves Susan Rice, Ambas­sador to the United Nations. The U.N. is the chosen instru­ment for ulti­mate global gov­er­nance. Rice will help to sub­vert the U.S. into the U.N. umbrella of vassal states.

As the First Obama term draws to a close, it is worth noting that our for­eign policy is in total sham­bles, national intel­li­gence appears to be worse than it was prior to 9/11 and the economy is still depressed. Yet, these areas were the ones tar­geted for Tri­lat­eral hege­mony, for “experts” who osten­sibly know more than anyone else. In Europe, these people would be prop­erly labeled as “technocrats.”

In a recent video inter­view with Sheila Bair, former head of the FDIC (Fed­eral Deposit Insur­ance Cor­po­ra­tion), she was point­edly asked “Why do you think he (Obama) chose (Trea­sury) Sec­re­tary Gei­thner?” Bair answered, “I assume this was a rec­om­men­da­tion of former Sec­re­tary Rubin who had been actively involved in the cam­paign. Most of his nom­i­nees were drawn from the Rubin Trea­sury department.”

Robert Rubin, a promi­nent member of the Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion, served as Sec­re­tary of the Trea­sury for 8 years under the Clinton/Gore Administration.

A person can hammer all he wants on the Obama char­acter and record, but his energy would be wasted. Obama is a puppet on a string, an empty suit, a teleprompter junkie reading speeches he could not and did not write. How­ever, locating the puppet-masters is not dif­fi­cult: They have been in plain sight all along.

Repub­li­cans take note: If you think that a vote for Romney will be a vote against Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion hege­mony, you are wrong. They are already sur­rounding him just as they sur­rounded Obama. A Romney pres­i­dency will only extend the Tri­lat­eral con­tinuum for another four years, and allow them more time to create/complete their “New Inter­na­tional Eco­nomic Order” that they have been pushing since 1973.

The Battle for GMO Foods: CA Prop 37

Cal­i­fornia cit­i­zens are waging a lop-sided war against genet­i­cally mod­i­fied food by asking for food labels that list GMO com­po­nents and per­cent­ages. I haven’t talked to any person who doesn’t want to know which foods con­tain GMO elements.

The global GMO industry thinks oth­er­wise, and the finan­cial war chest is swelling with money from donors such as Mon­santo ($7.1 mil­lion), Dupont ($4.9 mil­lion), BASF Plant Sci­ence ($2 mil­lion), Bayer Crop­science ($2 mil­lion), Dow Agro­sciences ($2 mil­lion), Pep­sico ($1.7 mil­lion),  Nestle USA ($1.1 mil­lion), Coca Cola ($1.1 mil­lion), Conagra Foods ($1 mil­lion) and Syn­genta Corp ($1 million).

These are the com­pa­nies who make GMO seeds (Mon­santo, Bayer, Dupont, BASF, Dow, Syn­genta) and those who use their prod­ucts (e.g., high-fructose corn syrup) by the mil­lions of tons per year (Pep­sico, Coca Cola, Nestle, etc.) High-fructose corn syrup is made from mostly GMO  corn, which rep­re­sents over 80 per­cent of the U.S. corn crop.

There are mul­tiple dan­gers and risks with GMO crops, including corn, that have led to con­sumer blow-back. Many coun­tries have out­right bans on growing GMO crops, such as France, Hun­gary and Japan.  It’s no wonder that the GMO industry is freaked out that people in Cal­i­fornia should have a choice to eat GMO or not because they would lose a ton of revenue.

    It is scary what Mon­santo is doing to plants, ani­mals and people. Please watch this video which will be off the internet after tonite. It is long, but well worth it.

  2. Debbie says:

    It is a legal respon­si­bility of the Drug and Food admin­is­tra­tion to enforce the list­ings of GMO’s and every state should be pushing to enforce it. Most Amer­i­cans have no idea what it is and how dan­gerous this is. And I also believe that before run­ning for any office it should be made known your con­nec­tion to the Tri­lat­eral Commission.

    Dear Patrick,

    Just a query. Why are you con­tin­uing to list Richard Hol­brooke, as though he was still a Spe­cial Envoy to the State Depart­ment, when he died almost two years ago on 13 Decebmer 2010? Oth­er­wise, great article.

    The US is the full time Vasal for the New World Order (through Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion) since the time of Senior Bush as Pres­i­dent. All Pres­i­dents, both repub­lican and demo­crat, have been sub­servient to the TC and NWO, from the time of Carter. Obama has done great job for them. He expanded the global mon­e­tary and eco­nomic align­ments to G20 from G 7 and he helped polit­i­cally realise the Arab Spring agenda! So, without doubt, it is Obama for a second term!!!

What is Globalization?

It is the col­lective effect of pur­poseful and amoral manip­u­la­tion that seeks to cen­tralize eco­nomic, polit­ical, tech­no­log­ical and soci­etal forces in order to accrue max­imum profit and polit­ical power to global banks, global cor­po­ra­tions and the elit­ists who run them. It is rapidly moving toward an full and final imple­men­ta­tion of Technocracy.

What is the Tri­lat­eral Commission?

Founded in 1973 by David Rock­e­feller and Zbig­niew Brzezinski, the Com­mis­sion set out to create a “New Inter­na­tional Eco­nomic Order”, namely, Tech­noc­racy. The orig­inal mem­ber­ship con­sisted of elit­ists (bankers, politi­cians, aca­d­e­mics, indus­tri­al­ists) from Japan, North America and Europe. Col­lec­tively, they have dom­i­nated and con­trolled trade and eco­nomic policy in their respec­tive coun­tries since at least 1974.

What is Technocracy?

Tech­noc­racy is a move­ment started in the 1930’s by engi­neers, sci­en­tists and tech­ni­cians that pro­posed the replace­ment of cap­i­talism with an energy-based economy. Orig­i­nally envi­sioned for North America only, it is now being applied on a global basis. Authors Aldous Huxley and George Orwell believed that Tech­noc­racy would result in a Sci­en­tific Dic­ta­tor­ship, as reflected in their books, “Brave New World” and “1984″.

Who is M. King Hubbert?

Hub­bert was a geo-physicist who co-founded Tech­noc­racy, Inc. in 1932 and authored its Tech­noc­racy Study Course. In 1954, he became the cre­ator of the “Peak Oil Theory”, or “Hubbert’s Peak” which the­o­rized that the world was rapidly run­ning out of carbon-based fuels. Hub­bert is widely con­sid­ered as a “founding father” of the global warming and green movements.

Who is R. Buck­min­ster Fuller?

A pio­neer in global eco­log­ical theory, Fuller (1895 – 1984) was the first to sug­gest the devel­op­ment of a Global Energy Grid that is today known as the Global Smart Grid. Fuller is widely con­sid­ered to be a “founding father” of the global green move­ment, including global warming, Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment, Agenda 21, etc.

Is the Venus Project like Technocracy?

The Venus Project, founded by Jacque Fresco, is a utopian, modern-day iter­a­tion of Tech­noc­racy. Like Tech­noc­racy, it scraps cap­i­talism and pro­poses that “a resource-based economy all of the world’s resources are held as the common her­itage of all of Earth’s people, thus even­tu­ally out­growing the need for the arti­fi­cial bound­aries that sep­a­rate people.” The appli­ca­tion of tech­nology is the answer to all of the world’s prob­lems, including war, famine and poverty.
