Introduction to Power by Association

Bilderberg says it is ‘a forum for informal discussions about major issues facing the world.’ At www.bilderbergmeetings.org they state, ‘The Bilderberg meeting is an annual meeting designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America.  Bilderberg was established in 1954 as a forum for informal discussions, bringing together individuals who share an active interest in affairs relevant to the relationship between Europe and Northern America.  The meeting has one main goal: to foster discussion and dialogue.  There is no desired outcome, there is no closing statement, there are no resolutions proposed or votes taken.’

If there ‘is no desired outcome’ than what is the point of the ‘designed’ platform for ‘dialogue?’  Do you take us all for fools?  It is interesting that the Trilateral Commission was created in the same manner. “The Commission was originally created in 1973 to bring together experienced leaders within the private sector to discuss issues of global concern at a time when communication and cooperation between Europe, North America, and Asia were lacking (www.trilateral.org 10/2016).”  And that Commission was originally set up to be temporary for ‘3 years,’ but of course as these International Committees with their sense of pride and power are almost always ongoing in the same manner as Corporate entities; they may change their names as that League of Nations transformed into the United Nations, but they typically grow in membership (UN – about 195 nations representing 99% of the world) and both Trilateral and Bilderberg expanded in membership and power.

And do not miss the fact that the Rockefellers were key and the set up and continuance of Bilderberg, the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).  Zbigniew Brzezinski, National Security Advisor to President Carter was a Rockefeller advisor.  And Gerard Smith, son of John T. Smith (chief counsel for General Motors), was an adviser during SALT (Strategic Arms Limitation Talks), founder of Consultants International Group, on the Atomic Energy Commission, friend and counsel to David Rockefeller (Chairman Chase Bank) and Trilateral’s first Chairman.  Robert Bowie (died 2013 at age 104), co-founder with Henry Kissinger (Bilderberg principal, Trilateral Comm., CFR, Sec. of State, etc.) of the Center for International Affairs (1958), was a chief member of CFR, Trilateral, CIA (Chief National Intelligence Officer) and the America Academy of Diplomacy, as well as recipient of the Legion of Merit, Order of Merit, and friend of David Rockefeller.  And George Franklin, with the CFR from 1945 to 1971, was its executive director from 1953 to 1971, a member of the Trilateral Commission and longtime associate of David Rockefeller.

And these power elites are not satisfied until they have a portion of control in all world matters.  It was Rockefeller’s friend and associate John McCloy who ran much of the War Department during WWII with Sec. Stimson (of J. P. Morgan Bank).  And it was McCloy who was president of the World Bank (U.N.) and who introduced Professor Henry Kissinger to Rockefeller.   And McCloy’s brother-in-law Lewis Douglas, a trustee of the Rockefeller Foundation, was a board member on the CFR.  And when President Truman entered the Korean War, he created the Office of Defense Mobilization to assist we our domestic economy, and placed Charles Wilson, president of J. P. Morgan controlled General Electric Company.  Charles took in Sidney Weinbeig of Goldman Sachs and Lucius Clay of the Lehman Corporation.  And after McCloy was president of the World Bank, Eugene Black (V.P. Chase Bank) served a term until Winthrop Aldrich, brother-in-law to John D. Rockefeller, Jr, took the post as World Bank president.

As reported in our blog Exposing the Sorcerers, Under the section, Applying for Individual Membership, at The Council on Foreign Relations (www.cfr.org  2016) it writes, “’The convening power of CFR is unparalleled, attracting the most prominent world leaders in government and business.’ – CFR Board Co-Chairs ‘ Understand, the convening power of these ‘behind the scene’ ‘clubs, groups, and institutions,’ is quite simply their ability to gather such influential ‘world leaders’ to central meeting places where they move from becoming acquaintances to becoming ambassadors to and for each other’s common agendas.”

And George Franklin was quoted in Trilateral Commission Task Force Reports from 1978 (report 9-14; p. 268), “The economic officials of at least the largest countries must begin to think in terms of managing a single world economy in addition to managing international economic relations among countries.”  Yet, when asked on a KLMG Radio program in July 1979, ‘Is the Trilateral commission presently involved in any effort to make a one-world?’  Franklin said, ‘definitely not.  We have not.  We have no one-world doctrine.  Our only belief is …that this world will somehow do better, if the advanced industrial democracy that serves Japan and the United States can cooperate…’  Next, he was asked, ‘Why is it, in the Trilateral Commission that the name David Rockefeller shows up so persistenly…?’  Franklin: ‘Well, this is very reasonable.  David Rockefeller is the Chairman of the North American group.  There are three chairman; one …N. American… one is the Japanese group, and one is the European group.’

Likewise, Dan Smoot, formerly in the FBI Headquarters, stated, ‘The ultimate aim of the CFR is to create a one-world socialist system, and to make the U.S. an official part of it.’  Even by 1980, over 300 members of CFR were U.S. Government officials.

In Brzezinski’s book, ‘Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era (1970),’ he wrote, “”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…  The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities.”  In his book, he also spoke of meetings between “201 Christian and Marxist philosophers, theologians and scientists from 16 European countries and the United States… theme ‘Creativity and Freedom in a Human Society’ …Christian-Marxist Dialogue… (meetings 1967).”

Brzezinski was a professor in New York City; David Rockefeller read his book and in 1973 launched the Trilateral Commission.  In his book, What is the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission?  Jack Newell wrote, “The original literature of The Trilateral Commission also states, exactly as Brzezinski’s book had proposed, that the more advanced Communist States could become partners in the alliance leading to world government. In short, David Rockefeller implemented Brzezinski’s proposal.”  On March 21, 1978, “The New York Times” featured an article about Zbigniew Brzezinski’s close relationship with the President (Carter).  In part, it reads: “The two men met for the first time four years ago when Mr. Brzezinski was executive director of The Trilateral Commission… and had the foresight to ask the then obscure former Governor of Georgia to join its distinguished ranks. Their initial teacher-student relationship blossomed during the campaign, and appears to have grown closer still.”

During the 1976 political campaign, Jimmy Carter repeatedly told the nation that he was going to get rid of the Establishment Insiders if he became president; as did Hillary Clinton.  But when he took office, he filled his Administration with 284 members of the Council on Foreign Relations and The Trilateral Commission, the two most prominent insider organizations in America.  Included in this list of members of The Trilateral Commission were Walter Mondale and Dr. Henry Kissinger.  Beginning with Jimmy Carter, all the recent presidents, including President Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama, have promptly filled their administrations with members of the Council on Foreign relations and The Trilateral Commission.  Very Secretary of State since Kissinger has been a member of CFR and or the Trilateral Commission and or Bilderberg.

Barry Goldwater once stated, “The Trilateral Commission is international, and it is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. The Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power – political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical.”

Before Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton was elected President, in 1991/1992 he was courted by Rockefeller and Bilderberg.  Likewise, Tony Blair was in 1993 before becoming the Prime Minister.  Likewise, Hillary Clinton attended Bilderberg at least twice (1997, 2006), and Barack Obama did in 2008 before becoming President.

Of course not all members of these organization are out to destroy America’s culture and sovereignty; nevertheless, by and due to their consent and participation, America’s culture not only changes conforming to the United Nations and Bilderberg agendas, but it loses some of its own power every decade, until at some point in the future, the power elites of the Central Banks will fund all wars and run the world.

WHAT IS BILDERBERG?

The Bilderberg is the Hotel de Bilderberg in Oosterbeek, Netherlands, where the first ‘Bilderberg Meeting’ was held in May 1954.  According to their site, “Founded in 1954, the Bilderberg conference is an annual meeting designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America. Every year, between 120-150 political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia and the media are invited to take part in the conference. About two thirds of the participants come from Europe and the rest from North America; approximately one third from politics and government and the rest from other fields.  The conference is a forum for informal discussions about major issues facing the world. The meetings are held under the Chatham House Rule, which states that participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s) nor any other participant may be revealed.”   Bilderberg is ran by its Steering Committee.

The meeting took place just 16 miles south of the G7 Summit that preceded it.  In addition to the regulers like the UK Chancellor and Michael O’Leary of Ryanair and Thomas Enders of Airbus attended.  Airbus is one of the world’s largest manufactures of weapons.  Eric Schmidt of Google spoke of the DeepMind project and modern technology.   Likewise, former DARPA director and Google executive Regina Dugan discussed the DeepMind ‘artifical intelligence’ chip.   The chip can be swallowed in a capsule – the ‘pill has a small chip inside of it with a switch’ which goes on and off and allows the body to act as a biological authentication system for cellphones, cars, doors and other devices.
