The Trilateral Commission’s roots stem from the book Between Two Ages (16) written by Zbigniew Brzezinski in 1970. The following quotations from that book show how closely Brzezinski’s thinking parallels that of CFR founder Edward Mandell House.
On page 72, Brzezinski writes: “Marxism is simultaneously a victory of the external, active man over the inner, passive man and a victory of reason over belief.”
On page 83, he states: “Marxism, disseminated on the popular level in the form of Communism, represented a major advance in man’s ability to conceptualize his relationship to his world.”
And on page 123, we find: “Marxism supplied the best available insight into contemporary reality.”
Nowhere does Mr. Brzezinski tell his readers that the Marxism “in the form of Communism,” which he praises, has been responsible for the murder of approximately 100 million human beings in the Twentieth Century, has brought about the enslavement of over a billion more, and has caused want, privation and despair for all but the few criminals who run the communist-dominated nations.
On page 198, after discussing America’s shortcomings, Brzezinski writes: “America is undergoing a new revolution” which “unmasks its obsolescence.” We disagree; America is not becoming obsolete.
On page 260, he proposes “Deliberate management of the American future…with the…planner as the key social legislator and manipulator.” The central planning he wants for our country is a cardinal underpinning of communism and the opposite of the way things are done in a free country.
On page 296, Mr. Brzezinski suggests piecemeal “Movement toward a larger community of the developed nations…through a variety of indirect ties and already developing limitations on national sovereignty.” Here, we have the same proposal that has been offered by Richard Gardner in the CFR publication Foreign Affairs.
Brzezinski then calls for the forging of community links among the United States, Western Europe, and Japan; and the extension of these links to more advanced communist countries. Finally, on page 308 of his 309-page hook, he lets us know that what he really wants is “the goal of world government”. …”

Chapter 9.1: The Trilateral Commission
The Trilateral Commission, the CFR, and control of the White House
“…Brzezinski was the author of the book Between Two Ages, which was published in 1970, in which he called for a new international monetary system, and it was considered to be the ‘Bible’ of the Trilateralists. On page 72, he said: “Marxism is simultaneously a victory of the external, active man over the inner, passive man and a victory of reason over belief.” He called for “deliberate management of the American future” (pg. 260), a “community of nations” (pg. 296), and a “world government” (pg. 308). He became its first Director (1973-76), drafted its Charter, and became its driving force.
Funding for the group came from David Rockefeller, the Charles F. Kettering Foundation, and the Ford Foundation.
In July, 1972, Rockefeller called his first meeting, which was held at Rockefeller’s Pocantico compound in New York’s Hudson Valley. It was attended by about 250 individuals who were carefully selected and screened by Rockefeller and represented the very elite of finance and industry.
Within a year, after their first full meeting of the Executive Committee in Tokyo, the Trilateral Commission, considered to be an off-shoot of the Bilderberg group, was officially initiated, holding biannual meetings. Because of a heavy cross-membership, some researchers have said that they appear to be an inner circle of the Council on Foreign Relations, with ties to the Atlantic Institute for International Affairs (established in 1961), and the Bilderberg Group.
The Trilateral Commission represents a union of experts and transnational elite from the three noncommunist industrial regions of the world: North America, Japan, and Western Europe (excluding Austria, Greece, and Sweden). Rockefeller saw the need for such a private consultation among these three democratic areas. With the demise of the Bretton Woods system, they believed an overhaul was needed. The theory was that America’s role should be diminished, and made equal to the Common Market [E.U.] and Japan, because together, the three represent 70% of the world’s trade. …”

Obama: Trilateral Commission Endgame
By Patrick Wood
“…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 advisors 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 advisor to Obama and was mentor to Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
Robert Zoelick is currently president of the World Bank
Laurence Summers, White House Economic Advisor, 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. …”
The Obama presidency is a disingenuous fraud. He was elected by promising to bring change, yet from the start change was never envisioned. He was carefully groomed and financed by the Trilateral Commission and their friends.
In short, Obama is merely the continuation of disastrous, non-American policies that have brought economic ruin upon us and the rest of the world. The Obama experience rivals that of Jimmy Carter, whose campaign slogan was “I will never lie to you.”
When the Democrat base finally realizes that it has been conned again (Bill Clinton and Al Gore were members), perhaps it will unleash a real political revolution that will oust Trilateral politicians, operatives and policies from the shores of our country.
If the reader is a Democrat, be aware that many Republicans and conservatives are still licking their wounds after finally realizing that George Bush and Dick Cheney worked the same con on them for a disastrous eight years of the same policies! …”
The return of the Trilateral undead
“…It’s not accidental that so many of the original members of the Trilateral Commission, all of whom are now well into their 80’s, have returned to dance in the limelight once again.
TC Members like Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Paul Volker and Brent Scowcroft, for instance. …”
“…So, now we have the mother of all crises and on a global scale at that: Financial, political, religious (remember Islam?).
And socialistic solutions are being railroaded through on a daily basis.
If the New World Order baby is about to be delivered, wouldn’t you expect the fathers (Kissinger, Brzezinski, Scowcroft, Volker, Rockefeller, et al) to show up and pace the floor?
Everybody figures that these guys are just crusty and harmless old men, but I will guarantee that when the baby is finally born the screaming will begin. …”
