:: Libertythink :: Encouraging Cognitive Liberty in an Age of Statist Propaganda ::

Part 1 of 3

There are two common misconceptions held by those who are critical of globalism.

The first error is that there is a very small group of people who secretly run the world with all-powerful and unrestrained dictatorial powers. The second error is that there is a large amorphous and secret organization that runs the world. In both cases, the use of the word "they" becomes the culprit for all our troubles, whoever "they" might be. If taxes go up, it is "they" that did it. If the stock market goes down, "they" are to blame. Of course, nobody really knows who "they" are so a few figureheads (people or organizations) are often made out to be the scapegoats.

Depending on a person's politics and philosophy, the scapegoats could be the U.S. President, the ACLU, the Ford Foundation, or Vladimir Putin. The point is, the real power structure is not correctely defined, and thus escapes exposure.

These misconceptions are understandable because when things are wrong, we all have a driving need to know who to blame! In some cases, elitist slight-of-hand initiates and then perpetuates false assumptions.

This writer has never been accused of charging that all large corporations are guilty of initiating and perpetuating globalization. There are many businesses, including banks, who are led by moral, ethical and good-hearted businessmen or businesswomen. Just because a company might touch globalism does not mean it and its management or employees are evil.

Every bit of thirty-five years of research indicates that there is a relatively small yet diverse group of global players who have been the planners and instigators behind globalization for many decades. The primary driving force that moves this "clique" is greed; the secondary force is the lust for power. In the case of the academics who are key to globalism, a third force is professional recognition and acceptance (a subtle form of egoism and power.)

It is also important to understand that core globalists have full understanding of their goals, plans and actions. They are not dimwitted, ignorant, misinformed or naive.

The global elite march in three essential columns: Corporate, Political and Academic. For the sake of clarity, these names will be used herein to refer to these three groups.

In general, the goals for globalism are created by Corporate. Academic then provides studies and white papers that justify Corporate's goals. Political sells Academic's arguments to the public and if necessary, changes laws to accommodate and facilitate Corporate in getting what it wants.

An important ancillary player in globalism is the media, which we will call Press in this report. Press is necessary to filter Corporate, Academic and Political's communications to the public. Press is not a fourth column, however, because it's purpose is merely reflective. However, we will see that Press is dominated by members of Corporate, Political and Academic who sit on the various boards of directors of major Press organizations.

This report will attempt to identify and label the core players in the globalization process. The intent is to show the makeup and pattern of the core, not to list every person in it. Nevertheless, many people will be named and their associations and connections revealed. This is done for two reasons.

First, it will equip the reader to be able to accurately identify other core players as they are brought into focus. Secondly, the reader will be able to pass over minor players who may sound like "big fish" but in fact are only pedestrians.

Organizational Memberships

The old saying, "Birds of a feather, flock together" is appropriate for the perpetrators of globalism. Sociologically speaking, they are like any other people group with like interests: they naturally tend to form societies that will help them achieve their common interests. A side-benefit of fellowship is mutual support and encouragement. Once formed, such groups tend to be self-perpetuating, at least as long as common interests remain.

In modern history, the pinnacle of global drivers has been the Trilateral Commission. Founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski, this group is credited with being the founder of the New International Economic Order that has given rise to the globalization we see today.

The Council on Foreign Relations

Prior to the founding of the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) was the most significant body of global-minded elitists in the United States. As far back as 1959, the CFR was explicit about a need for world government:

"The U.S. must strive to build a new international order... including states labeling themselves as 'socialist'... to maintain and gradually increase the authority of the United Nations."

The site for the United Nations headquarters in New York was originally donated by the Rockefeller family, and the CFR world architects worked for many years to use the U.N. as a means to develop an image of world order. Indeed, the CFR membership roster has been, and still is a Who's Who of the elitist eastern establishment.

The first problem with the CFR is that it became too large and too diverse to act as a "cutting edge" in global policy creation. The second problem is that it's membership was limited to north America: What group could effect global changes without a global membership?

The CFR continues to be significant in the sense that politicians often look to its membership when searching for people to fill various appointments in government. It also continues to be a policy mill through its official organ, Foreign Policy.

While there are several core global elitists in the ranks of the CFR, they represent a very small percentage of the total membership. Conversely, there are many CFR members who are only lightly involved with globalism. For this reason, we do not count the CFR as being central to globalization today.

The Trilateral Commission

David Rockefeller recognized the shortcomings of the CFR when he founded the Trilateral Commission in 1973 with Zbigniew Brzezinski. Rockefeller represented Corporate and Brzezinski represented Academic.

Together, they chose approximately 300 members from north America, Europe and Japan, whom they viewed as being their "birds of a feather." These members were at the pinnacle of their profession, whether Corporate, Academic, Political or Press. It is a testimony to the influence of Rockefeller and Brzezinski that they could get this many people to say "Yes" when they were tapped for membership.

Out of the 54 original U.S. members of the Trilateral Commission, Jimmy Carter was fronted to win the presidential election in 1976. Once inaugurated, Carter brought no less than 18 fellow members of the Commission into top-level cabinet and government agencies...

GILCHRIST FOR CONGRESS ALERT! -- ''OUR BORDERS UNDER ATTACK''
Saturday, November 26, 2005

Chris Simcox, President of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps and spokesman for the JIM GILCHRIST for Congress campaign, will be hosting "Our Borders Under Attack," an insightful look at how illegal immigration is hurting our country and what can be done to stop it.

The half-hour program will air on KKLA 99.5 FM in Los Angeles on Sunday, Nov. 27, at 2:30 pm. The program can be heard live online at www.kkla.com.

Chris's guests include Minuteman Project founder JIM GILCHRIST, currently a candidate for Congress in Orange County, California's 48th Congressional District; and Congressman TOM TANCREDO (R-CO), chairman of the House Immigration Caucus.

"There is no question that illegal immigration has emerged as the number one issue imperiling our nation's future," Simcox says. "Jim Gilchrist's candidacy for Congress has dragged this crisis into the light, and forced Washington, D.C., to react. We will be talking to Jim about the illegal immigration problem and ways voters can help his campaign force the federal government to start doing its most important job - securing America from alien gangs, drug runners, sex slavers, even terrorists."

"CONGRESSMAN TOM TANCREDO has been an uncompromised champion in getting Congress to wake up to the threats posed by uncontrolled illegal immigration and our porous borders," states candidate Jim Gilchrist. "His courageous leadership on the immigration issue has forced Republicans and Democrats alike to begin taking a stand to defend our borders and crack down on the illegal alien problem in our nation today." Adds Gilchrist, "Now we need to get some accountability and action out of Washington, instead of politicians talking out of both sides of their mouths. I am fed up with career politicians who pretend they are tough on these issues, but actually vote with the open borders lobby."

"Everyone concerned about this critical national security and taxpayer issue needs to listen to "Our Borders Under Attack" on KKLA this Sunday at 2:30 pm Pacific Standard Time," says Simcox. "If the Jim Gilchrist campaign receives enough financial support from the listeners and concerned voters, we will schedule additional airings of this informative and galvanizing program. But the Gilchrist campaign does not enjoy the heavy dollars our opponent is reaping from the open borders lobby, so we need patriotic Americans to help us get Jim's message out."

JIM GILCHRIST asks that everyone receiving this message please go to www.jimgilchrist.com and contribute generously to his campaign for an end to illegal immigration and a beginning to real border security. "Our Borders Under Attack" is sponsored and paid for by Jim Gilchrist for Congress, and we hope you will tune in.
