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
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.
The article quotes Paul Volcker. The article tells us the
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
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."
article warps the truth by failing to mention that over 90% of the
members are American citizens that belong to the Council on Foreign
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 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
"..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
As we all know, 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,
Department, and other agencies. Whose orchestrating the lying,
Albright, Clinton, the Clinton Whitehouse, or the
Council on Foreign
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.
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. Security is
usually tight, keeping the general public and news media out of the
discussion, and identifying, photographing, adding as many
"outsiders" as possible who do show up, to a list of potential
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
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. The Institutes of
International Affairs adopted their use. "Study-Groups" are
formalized "discussion-groups" used by the Council on Foreign
Relations and its branch organizations in other nations;
controlled think tanks such as,
And, Council controlled
governmental agencies like,
The meetings are limited to a small group 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
By 1936 Institutes of International Affairs were established in,
Each Institute , under the guise of world peace,
concentrated on influencing national-policy to achieve unity of all
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.
Could the reason famous economist John Kenneth Galbraith has never
written a book exposing the Council on Foreign Relations effect on
the economy because Galbraith , is a Council on Foreign Relations
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.
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
4. the Netherlands
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.
Greene 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.
The annual Trilateral Commission meeting in Washington DC,
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
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
Greek and are related mainly to the connection and the
involvement of the Bilderberg Club in the Greek 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."
