Who Is In Charge Of Destroying Economies

Who sets that policy? Who keeps it intact, despite new legislators and Presidents exiting and entering office?

Who keeps pushing new economy-destroying trade treaties, like the upcoming TPP? Who demands that these treaties must be ratified?

A number of groups—but one group has been virtually forgotten. Its influence is enormous. It has existed since 1973.

It’s called the Trilateral Commission (TC).

In a minute, I’m going to print a stunning piece of forgotten history, a 1978 conversation between a US reporter and two members of the Trilateral Commission.

I discovered the conversation in the late 1980s, and ever since then, I’ve been looking at it from various angles, finding new implications. Here, I want to point out that the conversation was public knowledge at the time.

Anyone who was anyone in Washington politics, in media, in think-tanks, had access to it. Understood its meaning.

But no one shouted from the rooftops. No one used the conversation to force a scandal. No one protested loudly.

The conversation revealed that the entire basis of the US Constitution had been torpedoed, that the people who were running US national policy (which includes trade treaties) were agents of an elite shadow group. No question about it.

And yet: official silence. Media silence. The Dept. of Justice made no moves, Congress undertook no serious inquiries, and the President, Jimmy Carter, issued no statements. Carter was himself a covert agent of the Trilateral Commission in the White House, a willing pawn, a rank con artist, a hustler. He had been plucked from obscurity and, through elite TC press connections, vaulted into the spotlight as a pre-eminent choice for the Presidency.

To boil down the 1978 conversation between the reporter and two Trilateral Commission members, and the follow-on response:

“The US has been taken over.”

“Yeah, so?”

Many people think the TC, created in 1973 by David Rockefeller, is a relic of an older time.

Think again.

Patrick Wood, author of Trilaterals Over Washington, points out there are only 87 members of the Trilateral Commission who live in America. Obama appointed eleven of them to posts in his administration.

For example:

* Tim Geithner, Treasury Secretary

* James Jones, National Security Advisor

* Paul Volker, Chairman, Economic Recovery Committee

* Dennis Blair, Director of National Intelligence

Several other noteworthy Trilateral members:

* George HW Bush

* Bill Clinton

* Dick Cheney

* Al Gore

Keep in mind that the original stated goal of the TC was to create “a new international economic order.”

In the run-up to his inauguration after the 2008 presidential election, Obama was tutored by the co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Brzezinski wrote, four years before birthing the TC with his godfather, David Rockefeller:

“[The] nation state as a fundamental unit of man’s organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force. International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation state.” [Bold Emphasis Added]

Any doubt on the question of TC goals is answered by David Rockefeller himself, the founder of the TC, in his Memoirs (2003):

“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” [Bold Emphasis Added]

Techie’s Diapers In A Twist Over Trump’s Apple Remark

Trump just said he’d force Apple to make their damn computers in America, and this raised a crib-howl from techies. You know, those super-intelligent “humanitarian progressives” who somehow finesse the fact that their cherished gizmos are manufactured in foreign factories where the workers are virtual slaves.

Techies: “Slaves? Just the cost of doing business. We still love everybody.”

For the moment, to avoid ad hominem arguments, let’s forget that Trump made the remark; and let’s also forget that truly free markets don’t exist on a macro scale.

Here is the obvious knock-you-in-the-face truth: you can’t have a level playing field if you allow US companies to go abroad, set up factories in places where their costs are minimal, and export those products back to the US. That kind of operation destroys companies who are making the same products in America, at much higher costs.

This isn’t economics. You don’t need algorithms to figure it out. You don’t need experts to weigh in with their fatuous bloviations. Anybody with three active brain cells can see the truth.

Here is the bottom line: free markets, to the degree they exist, were never designed for international trade. They were designed for national economies.

In order to make international trade work, you have (you had) tariffs. A company abroad, no matter who owns it, can only ship goods into the US for sale if it pays a big fat tax to level the field.

But then it all changed: no-tariff free trade entered the scene. This was the invention of Globalists, whose ambition was to “liberate mega-corporations” from any and all reasonable obligations, so they could roam the world minus any allegiance to their home countries, and basically act as predators.

This is GATT, the WTO, NAFTA, CAFTA, the upcoming TPP, and so on. Treaties.

Let’s say there are 50 companies in the US who make sneakers here. The average cost of a pair is $2. That’s the manufacturing cost. Four of these companies shut their plants in the US and go to China, where they make a pair for 16 cents. They bring all those sneakers back here for sale. What happens to the other 46 American companies who are still making their sneakers here? Get the correct answer and you earn an A in Globalism 101.
