Specifically, Hopkins asserts, if I understand him correctly, that members of the Rhodes – Milner Group were duped by one of their members who went on to devise a new plan for the domination of the World which is now being put into effect.
This is an interesting hypothesis and I should be glad of any clarification that Alan Hopkins or anyone else can provide showing the connection between the Rhodes-Milner Group, which promoted the idea of a global federation of democratic states, and the powers behind the presently unfolding system of global corporate control mediated by pseudo-democratic processes performed by puppets of the money power.
In the meantime, Jon Rappoport's Who really runs things in America? provides fascinating insight into the power and objectives of the Tri-lateral Commission (TC) founded by Zbigniew Brzezinski and David Rockefeller.
Concerning objectives, Rappoport quotes Brzezinski:
[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.A statement that perhaps accounts for the genocidal promotion of mass immigration and multi-culturalism by European nation states ruled by globalist tools such as Blair, Cameron, Sarkozy, Berlusconi, Barroso, who it may be assumed, take their direction from those international banks and multinational corporations that Brzezinski refers to.
Concerning the power of members of the TC, Rappoport notes:
Obama appointed eleven of them to posts in his administration. [And note that according to Rappoport, altogether there are only 87 TC members resident in the United States.]
Keep in mind that the original stated goal of the TC was to create “a new international economic order.” Knowing that you have to break eggs to make an omelette, consider how the following TC members, in key Obama posts, can help engender further national chaos; erase our sovereign national borders; and install binding international agreements that will envelop our economy and money in a deeper global collective: a new world order:
Tim Geithner, Treasury Secretary;
James Jones, National Security Advisor;
Paul Volker, Chairman, Economic Recovery Committee;
Dennis Blair, Director of National Intelligence.
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.
In Europe, the financially embattled nations of Greece and Italy brought in Lucas Papademos and Mario Monti as prime ministers. Both men are Trilateral members, and Monti is the former European chairman of the Trilateral Commission.
In the US, since 1973, author Wood counts eight out of 10 US Trade Representative appointments, and six out of eight World Bank presidencies, as American Trilateral members.
... other noteworthy Trilateral members: George HW Bush; Bill Clinton; Dick Cheney; Al Gore. The first three men helped sink the US further into debt by fomenting wars abroad; and Gore’s cap and trade blueprint would destroy industrial economies, while vastly increasing the numbers of people in Third World countries who have no access to modern sources of energy.
Does all this offer a clue as to why the US economy has failed to recover from the Wall Street debacle of 2008, why the federal bailout was a handout to super-rich criminals, and why Obama took actions which prevented a recovery?
A closer look at Tim Geithner’s circle of economic advisers reveals the chilling Trilateral effect: Paul Volker; Alan Greenspan; E. Gerald Corrigan (director, Goldman Sachs); and Peter G Peterson (former CEO, Lehman Brothers, former chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations). These men are all Trilateral members.
How many foxes in the hen house do we need, before we realize their Trilateral agenda is controlling the direction of our economy?
