The Trilateral Commission (TLC) was founded by Zbigniew Brzezinski and David Rockefeller in 1973. David Guyatt reports that it could be "said to be the Bilderberg group dressed in another frock". It is often mentioned together with the Bilderberg group and the Council On Foreign Relations. As of May 2019, it was still very poorly documented by this website, but its importance in the world of deep politics should not be underrated.
The Rockefeller Influence
The members are not elected, they are chosen. The Chairman of the Executive Committee, the committee that chooses members, was for many years deep state politican David Rockefeller (died 2017), who was also founder and Chairman of the overall Trilateral Commission. The entire structure reflects the Rockefeller choices, not impartial or democratically representative choices.
As for membership, the Trilateral Commission notably brings together the Administrators of power rather than the Holders. Politicians, lawyers, bureaucrats, media executives, trade unionists come and go in the Trilateral meetings — they are transient administrators of power. The agenda is set elsewhere.
Within ten days of assuming power, Barack Obama had appointed eleven members of the Trilateral Commission to top-level and key positions in his administration, some 12% of the TLC's entire US membership.
The membership list (see above) contains the members from 1978 and 1993, the 2020 member list published by the Trilateral Commission itself, and some miscellaneous known members. With some coming and some going, the known membership is fairly complete, but will still have some gaps.
Failed Call for Investigation
In 1980, congressman Larry McDonald introduced American Legion National Convention Resolution 773 to the House of Representatives calling for a comprehensive congressional investigation into the Council on Foreign Relations and Trilateral Commission, but nothing came of it. McDonald was killed in 1983 aboard Korean Air Lines Flight 007.
|Will Hutton||“Along with the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberg Conference, this (the World Economic Forum) is one of the key meetings of the year. No policy is made here; it is all talk, some of it banal and platitudinous. But the consensus established is the backdrop against which policy is made worldwide”||Will Hutton|
|Paul Volcker||“In 1952, straight from the London School of Economics, Volcker joined the Federal Reserve Bank of New York as an economist. He stayed for five years, until 1957, at which time Volcker moved from Liberty Street to become an economist for Chase Manhattan Bank, where he stayed for four years, until 1961. In 1961, Volcker went to the Treasury Department in Washington, thus completing the first round of his three stop "revolving door." Appointed as Deputy Undersecretary for Monetary Affairs, he held that job just long enough to learn the ropes in Washington, and returned to New York, to Chase Manhattan Bank, as Vice President in charge of Planning. After three years in that post, Volcker left in 1969 to become Undersecretary for Monetary Affairs at the U. S. Treasury Department. After five years, Volcker completed the second round of his "revolving door" with an appointment as President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
Volcker is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Rockefeller Foundation and the American Friends of the London School of Economics.If Paul Volcker was a solitary phenomenon, we could make no case for Trilateral control of the Federal Reserve System. In fact, the Volcker phenomenon is one of a dozen parallel situations.”
