Trilateral Commission members want suffering U.S. taxpayers to shell out even more money

The Trilateral Commission—one of the three most powerful globalist groups in the world—held closed-door meetings right here in Washington, D.C. from April 25 to 28. True to form, those members of the media who knew about the meeting—or were themselves participants in the proceedings—refused to discuss what went on inside or report on the attendees. Luckily, AFP’s own editor, Jim Tucker, was on the scene to bust this clandestine confabulation wide open.

Luminaries at the Trilateral Commission meeting in Washington expressed confidence that they own all three major presidential candidates, who, despite political posturing, will support sovereignty-surrendering measures such as NAFTA and the “North American Union.”

“John has always supported free trade, even while campaigning before union leaders,” said one. “Hil and Barack are pretending to be unhappy about some things, but that’s merely political posturing. They’re solidly in support.”

He was referring to Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Barack Obama (D-Ill.).

Mrs. Clinton, they noted, held strategy sessions as first lady on how to get Congress to approve NAFTA “without changes.” As president, they agreed, she would do no more than “dot an i or cross a t.”

Candidate Obama has not denied news reports in Canada that his top economic adviser, Austan Goolsbee, assured Canadian diplomats that the senator would keep NAFTA intact and his anti-trade talk is just “campaign rhetoric.”


While they are confident they can deal with any “potential president,” the Trilateralists paid huge tribute to Ron Paul in an equally large twist of irony, by expressing alarm that he is causing “significant future damage.”

They expressed concern that Paul’s rallies have attracted multitudes of young people who are getting “their political education.” They want Republicans to pressure Paul to drop out now and stop his education rallies. This assignment was given to Thomas Foley, former U.S. House speaker.

The reasons Paul’s “education campaign” strikes fear into Trilateral hearts are obvious. Paul would refuse to surrender an ounce of U.S. sovereignty to an international organization and TC wants world government.

Paul would immediately bring U.S. troops home from Iraq, Afghanistan and from 130 UN “peacekeeping” missions around the globe. TC wants to enjoy war profiteering and global power. Paul would abolish the federal income tax while the TC wants to pile on a global tax payable to the UN.

The formal agenda was loaded with everything Paul and American patriots detest: higher taxes, more foreign giveaways, more immigration, both legal and illegal, into the United States and “engaging Iran,” among others.


The Trilaterals got down to real work on Saturday, April 26, with a high-powered panel called “U.S. Foreign and Domestic Policy: Broad Outlines for a New Administration.”

It was presided over by journalistic pimp David Gergen, who will write nothing about TC in his magazine, U.S News and World Report. Also participating were Kenneth Duberstein, former White House chief of staff for President Ronald Reagan; Strobe Talbot, president of the Brookings Institution and former deputy secretary of state; and Joseph Nye, former assistant secretary of defense. Henry Kissinger, former secretary of state and long-time Bilderberg leader, was present and listed as a participant. But a TC staff member crossed his name out. Some speculated he had throat problems.

This panel had these orders for the next president: increase foreign aid across the board because “America does not pay its fair share,” pay up the arrears in UN dues, allow as many immigrants into the United States as want to come and provide “amnesty” for illegal aliens already here.

Little, if anything, was said about the fact that American taxpayers pay one-fourth of the UN’s operating costs and one-third of the cost of 130 “peacekeeping missions” or the fact that immigrants from South America depress wages here and the average immigrant family costs the government thousands of dollars a year in welfare, health and other “benefits.”

Robert Zoellick, president of the World Bank and another long-time Bilderberg boy, largely echoed these views in a sweetheart “interview” by another journalistic strumpet, Lionel Barber, editor of The Financial Times, who will obediently report nothing.

  1. Thanks! myspace has not been working for me, so I can’t write you that way. I’ll try the other address.

    Thanks again.

  2. The reason for little immigration restraint hardly depends on the TC … just as Henry Ford imported ship loads of Swedes to work his factories, current business in the the US depends on cheap labor. Henry was the last car manufacturer to except unions.

    Who works the dish line of any freaking restaurant in this country? Who does the leave-blowing, car washing, house cleaning, fruit and vegetable picking?

    This is not justification, it’s just reality. Every business in this country would have to pay the fines and penalties for their sins, as business is the beneficiary, before any change occurs. I don’t think that is happening.

    Oh, but the average citizen of this fair land also benefits. The cost of goods and services would be jacked-up to pay ‘Americans’ working the jobs they won’t do for immigrant wages.

    This is not justification, just reality.

    As for the TC, wait and see what the corporations do while they starve half the planet. Get ready to cry, but then you probably don’t care about that. Good ole Ron Paul don’t like foreign aid, restraining corporate greed or public education. Ron Paul is just another brand name diversion while corporations
    1) build the ‘super-Corridor’ from Mexico to Canada
    2) while they waste our environment
    3) while insurance companies bilk the public on low risk policies While we pay more for drugs than any country in the world
    4) while we fight ficticious enemies and waste our budget on defense ‘systems’, maiming our soldiers lives, killing innocence Iraqis, all for the benefit of the TC few
    5) while the government increases surveillence of citizens
    6) while the corps buy and control our election process
    7) while we sit on our fat ‘a- -‘ and wine about immigrants while jobs are exported, like old rednecks used to whine about civil rights legislation
    8) Chevron pumps gas in Burma and supports the military junta(as does China)…you know, Chevron. George Schultz, Condo Rice, the ones that asked G. Bush to run for President.

    Not once did you mention anything about morality. You are right in suggesting that the TC is a rip-off. But it’s not about tax dollars. What about any human values. The corporations have formed their club to lobby for the global profit priority. The history of this country is rife with the same motivation usually draped in the same ole song and dance about god and country, same as Thomas Jefferson who couldn’t stand for a slave rebellion in Haiti in the early 1800’s so he supported the French, who lost. The Spanish-American War, Vietnam, the robber barons, slavery, all supported by Wall Street for good ole capitalist profit.

    We are in a war that kills people so Bush and his corporate bosses giggle and hoard money. Meanwhile the price of oil and food soars. This article praises Ron Paul. All of these freaking candidates trotted out there are for mass consumption. We must by hypnotized!

    Edward Bernays, the ‘father of public relations’ once put it this way:
    “If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing it,” He called this the “engineering of consent.”

    His clients included Bernays’s clients included President Calvin Coolidge, Procter & Gamble, CBS, the American Tobacco Company, General Electric and Dodge Motors.

    You may have read about Mark Penn at Penn, Schoen and Berland Associates, or the Rendon Group. will give you more.

    George W. Bush should have been a good lesson, though. Kick these bozos from Texas off at the next stop. I am from there and this is just a warning. You don’t know who Ron Paul is. A right-wing opportunist. You might as well vote for Donald Trump. These guys wish they could play with the TC crowd. Uber alles
