Today, these men are leaders of predatory global finance: Petraeus now heads KKR Global, the leveraged buyout firm, while Zoellick is a senior advisor to Goldman Sachs International.
Both men were also in attendance at the secretive 2014 Bilderberg conference.
Petraeus and Zoellick are the co-chairs of the CFR's North America - Time for a New Focus report, a globalism blueprint they claim carries an "integration and sovereignty" approach that somehow meaningfully differs from the EU's "shared sovereignty".
According to Robert Zoellick, North America can become a "new growth market" under integration, rife with exploitable opportunities through a "doubling down" of NAFTA-style policies that they expect 2016 presidential candidates to pursue.
Zoellick explicitly stated,
Hillary Clinton, for one, has already admitted (above video) that her orders are issued at the Council on Foreign Relations, while Jeb Bush, also a prospective candidate in 2016 (see: Dirty Secrets of The Bush's and The Clinton's) authored a CFR report on immigration reform and is brother to the president who founded the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, based on CFR blueprints for Building a North American Community.
Under the CFR's vision, North America would focus on U.S. markets "in energy, robotics, biotech, software, and big data" and combine with Canada's developed economy and natural resources and 'reforms' in Mexico that have helped "harmonize" it with the U.S. banker-led vision for the continent.
The CFR report claims that:
There is a particular focus on energy, with emphasis on boosted production expected from the Keystone pipeline, hugely expanded shale gas fracking operations and new markets for liquid natural gas.
Another CFR report this month is The Shale Gas and Tight Oil Boom - U.S. States' Economic Gains and Vulnerabilities, focusing on a predicted shift away from foreign oil dependence - as the dollar fades and its petrodollar privilege declines with it.
Under a "smart regional energy policy," Mexico - and its natural gas supplies - would be chained into a North American power grid alongside the United States, while Americans-at large would be committed to carbon reductions and environmental austerity policies.
Robert Zoellick told the CFR's Jonathan Masters in an interview:
The report also continues the trend of pushing for immigration reform, opening erasing borders to a globalized labor force, migrant workers, foreign consumer goods, service and finance and, of course, "harmonized policies" wherever possible.
Significantly, Petraeus - once a four-star general and head of the CIA - and Zoellick also recommend an office at the National Security Council for North America - making national security a matter of continental and global security.
This creates a fundamental and important runaround of constitutional protections for the United States of America, its people and their sovereignty.
This report represents a major update in the pursuit of a North American Union introduced publicly circa 2005 with the CFR's Building a North American Community and the signing of quiet trilateral agreements for the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America by President George W. Bush and his counterparts Stephen Harper and Vicente Fox in Canada and Mexico in 2006.
Media figures like Jerome Corsi and Lou Dobbs led the charge in exposing the global-corporate merger and criticizing the blackout in coverage of the events, with most of the corporate media eerily silent about these tectonic events on the North American continent.
Moreover, this North American merger joins the larger chorus of instituting global governance that has already sung loudly in the EU, and more softly in the African Union and various formative stages of unions Pacific, Latin/Pan-America and other global unions.
As Bilderberg investigative reporters,
...have noted, the European Union was the result of a 50 year project launched as a major component of the Bilderberg meetings themselves, founded in 1954.
The insider connections of the European and American banking, political and industrial powers fostered a series of benchmarks to bind the continent together through progressive agreements to integrate first through the European Coal and Steel Community, the European Common Market and then various subsequent treaties before the European Union became a formal - and binding - institution.
Interestingly, Putin just signed a Russo-centric Eurasian Economic Union agreement for his corner of the world - complementing the Russian-led creation of the BRICS development bank, widely seen as a landmark move in shattering the petrodollar paradigm, yet clearly still another BRIC in the wall of the New World Order global governance project.
The U.S. has also been pushing two important, but lesser known agreements to bind the world under Anglo-centric trading terms.
The secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) - to encompass the Asia-Pacific sphere (save China) - has been under negotiation for the last couple of years, though little of it has seen the light of public disclosure, while the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) would economically encircle the the European sector to create a corporate friendly atmosphere for Anglo-centric trade.
Some have blasted it as a trade off of national sovereignty for corporate sovereignty, a just and succinct analysis of the world.
As Pepe Escobar writes:
Gen. Petraeus, Zoellick and company are calling for Canada and Mexico to be included in the TTIP - as they already are with the Trans-Pacific Partnership - in the name of greater North American integration, and for U.S. leaders to focus on globalizing their home turf in the coming period after Obama.
