There are growing numbers of people from all walks of life who are becoming aware of what appears to be a plot by an elite secret society to install a totalitarian world government. There are countless books and websites on the subject, as well as individuals who tour the globe conducting lectures. Still, the average citizen of the world is quite unaware of the matter partly because it's such a hard story to swallow, but mainly because of the control this secret society has over all aspects of our lives. Despite overwhelming evidence showing that a global fascist state is in the works, the mainstream press never addresses the issue the "how"' and "why" for this is explained in the 'Media' section. While this might sound like a joke, read this entire booklet and you might change your mind. The people who have put this booklet together want to make it clear that we've never been paranoid that people were out to get us. Only a few years ago we laughed at the "conspiracy theorists" who claimed that there is a plot to control the world, but enough information has surfaced since then to make us realize that this is not just paranoid fantasy. Books concerning this 'New World Order' (the term most commonly used to describe the planned global fascist state) can be expensive and hundreds of pages long, and the average Joe is unaware that they even exist in the first place -- that is why we have gathered some of the more pertinent information together here, to be distributed free to anyone who cares to listen. This is neither right-wing nor left-wing propaganda, it is simply information aimed at the average intelligent human being. If you are skeptical and don't feel like reading this entire booklet then at least read the sections about 9/11 as they raise some interesting points. Also the section on the smallpox vaccine is important as it pertains to your health. We apologize in advance for any grammatical errors and the absence of paragraphs which was done to conserve space.
First of all, who are the Freemasons? Most people have never heard of the Freemasons, while many have heard of them but have no idea who or what they are. According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, Freemasonry is the largest worldwide secret society. Oldest mention of the word "Freemason" can be traced to the 1450's, but Masonic lore claims its origins predate ancient Egypt. It is estimated that there are more than 6 million Freemasons active in the world today. The organization usually consists of upper class white men who undergo a series of degrees (rituals) supposedly connected to the "Ancient Mysteries". Freemasonry is based on symbolism, and Masonic symbols can be found on the dollar bill and many government buildings. The six and seven-pointed stars worn as police badges are ancient occult symbols employed by the Freemasons. Many names and logos used by large corporations, and even the interlocking rings of the Olympics, can be traced to Freemasonry. Many researchers believe that even most Masons themselves have lost sight of the organization's true origin and purpose. Albert Pike, a prominent 33rd degree (the highest known rank) Mason in the 1800's, explained that members of the lower degrees are intentionally misled: "It is not intended that he shall understand ... but it is intended that he shall imagine he understands ..." This may explain the surprise of former 33rd degree Mason Jim Shaw (who exposes the craft in his book 'The Deadly Deception') when a fellow 33rd degree Mason said "they" had told him he was "going higher" and then left the lodge through a previously unused door. In 1826, a former Mason named William Morgan announced plans to publish a book exposing the secrets of Freemasonry. He said, "The bane of our civil institutions is to be found in Masonry, already powerful and daily becoming more so. I owe my country an exposure of its dangers." This very quote is inscribed on his memorial in Batavia, N.Y. The book was published, but Morgan was kidnapped and murdered by Masons. This led to a backlash against Freemasonry ... under public pressure, the New York State Senate investigated them and found that wealthy and powerful Masons were found at every level of government. The Senate also criticized the silent news media, saying: "This self-proclaimed sentinel of freedom has felt the force of Masonic influence." This led to the formation of the Anti-Masonic Party, which lasted until 1843 and was the first time a third party was formed in the U.S. Despite this, and the fact that at least 13 U.S. presidents (including George Washington) were Freemasons, we are not taught about it in American history class. The 33rd president, Harry Truman, was a 33rd degree Mason. It is a very unpublicized fact that Truman ordered the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (in which 150,000 people died) even though Japan was already trying to negotiate a formal surrender. That Freemasonry is never mentioned in education or media, even though countless famous names can be traced to it, should make it clear that there are secretive forces exerting control over these institutions. We are not suggesting that Freemasonry itself is the force that seeks to install a global government -- many join the Masons for a sense of purpose or belonging, while others join simply because they've heard it can get you out of a ticket if you flash a Masonic hand signal to a cop who is also a Mason. But if the organization consists largely of upper-class white men (i.e. people in positions of influence in the media, academic world, health industry, etc.) and those people are intentionally misled by the higher-ups, then that makes Freemasonry an effective tool for those higher-ups to wield considerable power in exerting their will upon society. This is known as social engineering, defined in the dictionary as: "management of human beings in accordance with their place and function in society." If the idea of a secret society attempting to install a totalitarian world government seems totally ludicrous to you, then ask yourself: how is it that something like Freemasonry, a powerful organization hundreds of years old with membership in the millions (including many of the key players in world history), has managed to thrive with the average person completely oblivious to its existence?
This is another word most people have never heard, and most of those who have don't know what it means. If secret societies like the Freemasons ever had good intentions, it is believed that the Illuminati took control of the top levels of these to redirect their purpose toward world conquest -- this would make the Illuminati a secret society within a secret society. Although older groups have used the name "Illuminati", the order that concerns us was first publicly identified in Bavaria in 1776. The known leader was a man named Adam Weishaupt, and one of his co-founders was a business partner of Mayer Rothschild (the Rothschild family have been major players in the goal of establishing the New World Order). A 1794 letter written by Weishaupt to fellow members states: "The great strength of our Order lies in its concealment. Let it never appear in any place in its own name, but always covered by another name, and another occupation. None is fitter than the three lower degrees of Freemasonry. In like manner we must try to obtain an influence in all offices which have any effect, either in forming, or managing, or even in directing the mind of man." Bavarian authorities saw them as a serious threat and outlawed the organization, but this prompted many members to flee the country and spread their philosophy even further. Officials collected Illuminati documents into a publication and distributed it to other European governments, but the warning fell on deaf ears ... the extravagance of the Illuminati scheme rendered it unbelievable, and so the leaders of Europe did not take it seriously. Whether the name "Illuminati" is still used is irrelevant -- their plot to control society seems to still exist today.
Understanding the pyramid structure is vital to understanding how the few can manipulate the many on a global scale. Adam Weishaupt created a pyramid chain of command so secure that no one knew he was head of the Illuminati until the authorities seized the group's internal papers. In these documents he described the pyramid structure: "I have two immediately below me into whom I breathe my whole spirit, and each of these again has two others, and so on. In this way I can set a thousand men in motion and on fire in the simplest manner, and in this way one must impart orders and operate on politics." This structure is mirrored in government, banking, religion, education, business, the media, etc. where a small number of individuals at the very top make the most money, make the policy decisions that affect all those beneath, and decide who will be in charge of who is hired, fired, or promoted. At the bottom of the pyramid are the masses of people who make the least money, don't make policy decisions, and must submit to what is dictated by those at the top or risk being fired, discharged, defrocked, disbarred, deported, arrested, etc. In this way, those at the top can push forward their agenda by rewarding those who serve it, and punishing those who do not. Through use of the law (laws are constantly being passed without the public's knowledge or approval) and the guns of the police and military, the federal government has convinced us that they are at the top of the pyramid even though we outnumber them by the millions and it is their purpose to serve our will, not the other way around. Several states have agreed that people suffering from cancer and extreme arthritis should be allowed access to medical marijuana, yet people are still being arrested and sent to prison for supplying it to them -- the government is defying the will of the voters just to insure that sick people keep suffering. Realize that forces in the government, in collusion with other governments of the world, are seeking to control us even further. But those at the top are only there because we are holding them up -- the New World Order can only succeed if the rest of us allow it.
EYE IN THE PYRAMID
The philosophy of using a pyramid structure as a means for the few to control the many appears in Masonic symbology as an eye in the top-most part of a pyramid known as the "all seeing eye". The eye represents the elite few who possess the knowledge of the Ancient Mysteries, while the rest of the pyramid is made up of everyone else under their control (some researchers say the pyramid originally symbolized spiritual wholeness but that its meaning, like that of the swastika, has been corrupted). Yes, this is the same symbol that is printed on the American dollar bill, with the words "Novus Ordo Seclorum" right beneath it -- this is Latin for "New Order of the Ages", or New World Order. The symbol was put on the dollar bill by President Roosevelt, who has also been identified as a high ranking Freemason. It's interesting to note that Roosevelt, like many other top ranking politicians around the world, has a bloodline that can be traced back to ancient royalty. Both George W. Bush and Al Gore have bloodlines that can be traced back to emperor Charlemagne (and all of Great Britain is ruled by a certain family simply because they claim to have "royal blood"). Be aware that the all-seeing-eye is also the official seal of the Information Awareness Office, formed after 9/11 and headed by John Poindexter (the man who masterminded the Iran-Contra scandal and then lied to Congress about it). The IAO is currently working on something called "Total Information Awareness" which will use supercomputers to scrutinize every available bit of information on everyone in the country, supposedly to protect us from terrorists. All available data will go to a "collaborative multi-agency analytical environment" which will decide if you are a potential "terrorist". Most Americans seem unaware that section 802 of the Patriot Act states the new definition of terrorism as being: "any action that endangers human life that is a violation of any Federal or State law." If you are selected as a potential terrorist then your information will go to the "policy and ops environment", and the ops include "pre-empt" (you can be detained without even having done anything wrong). In January 2003, a federal appeals court ruled that a wartime president can indefinitely detain a U.S. citizen captured as an enemy combatant and deny that person access to a lawyer, leaving them completely at the mercy of secret military courts. Already over a thousand people have been arrested in secret. Should events take place that equal or surpass the devastation of 9/11, federal agents will again start snatching people right off the street without explanation. Since the writing of this booklet began, the IAO has tried to shed its "big brother is watching you" image by dropping the all-seeing-eye as its official seal and changing the name of its program to "Terrorist Information Awareness". While this makeover may have eased the public's fears of a totalitarian government, the purpose of the agency has not changed.
THE JEWISH CONSPIRACY
There is no Jewish conspiracy. Even though one of the major families connected to the New World Order is Jewish (Rothschild), most of them are not. J.P. Morgan, who oversaw mergers forming the massive corporations that would dominate the electric, steel, agriculture and banking markets, publicly made anti-Semitic statements yet this did not stop the Morgans and Rothschilds from working closely together in private to pursue profit and control. Hitler received enormous support from the international banking fraternity which was closely entwined with the Rothschild dynasty (and researchers point to compelling evidence that Hitler may have been the grandson of Solomon Mayer Rothschild). Although the Rothschilds are credited with helping to create the state of Israel, one should consider all the religious, racial, and territorial strife connected with it to this day, not to mention its proximity to oil rich nations. Interestingly, what is known as the Star of David is actually an ancient occult symbol that is commonly found in Freemason imagery. This symbol is associated with Israel because it was also used as the Rothschild family seal. Despite being of Jewish descent, the Rothschild family's devotion to the Jewish people and the reasons behind the formation of the state of Israel are suspect. In the 1880's, Charles Taze Russell (a Freemason who founded the Jehovah's Witnesses through funding from the Rothschilds ... the Mormon founders were also Freemasons with Rothschild funding) "predicted" that the Jews would return to their homeland. Not such an amazing prediction considering his connection to the Rothschilds -- Baron Edmond de Rothschild had been financing Russian Jews to establish settlements in Palestine at the time. In 1901 these colonists complained to the Baron that he was running the settlements like a dictatorship, to which he replied: "I created the vishuv (settlement), I alone. Therefore no men, neither colonists nor organizations, have the right to interfere in my plans ..." In 1917, British foreign minister Lord Balfour stated on behalf of his government that they supported the creation of a Jewish homeland in Palestine (the Balfour Declaration). Balfour was a member of a secret society called The Round Table, which was founded by Cecil Rhodes and funded by the Rothschilds. Then in 1919 came the Versailles peace conference where it was decided that a Jewish homeland in Palestine would be created. It was also at this conference that the impossible reparations payments were imposed on Germany, leading to the economic collapse which allowed the Nazi's rise to power. It is important to note that almost everyone at this conference were members of the Roundtable secret society, of Rothschild bloodline, or otherwise under Rothschild financial control ... in fact, their host while in France was the Baron Edmond de Rothschild. It was at this time that these same people began creating the Council on Foreign Relations (which as you will read has played a major role in moving us towards a one world government). As for a Jewish conspiracy, former FBI agent and police chief W. Cleon Skousen sensibly stated that racial identification is "an oversimplified explanation for the rise of the global power structure which has ensnared mankind. In studying the global conspiracy it is important to keep in mind that it was not any particular race or religion but the passion for money and power which has drawn the tycoons of world finance into a tightly knit mutual aid society." It is also worth noticing that many groups or individuals who try to expose the New World Order agenda become victims of a smear campaign to present them as being anti-Semitic, even when all evidence points to the contrary. The Jews themselves have been victims of a massive smear campaign first with the death of Christ, and more recently with the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion".
THE PROTOCOLS OF THE LEARNED ELDERS OF ZION
In 1864, a French lawyer and secret society member named Maurice Joly wrote a book called 'Dialogue in Hell between Machiavelli and Montesquieu ...' The contents of the book actually led to Joly serving time in prison. In the mid-1880's, this obscure book was rewritten by the Russian Czar's secret police and re-titled to make it appear that it was written by Jews. The objective was to relieve public pressure on the Czar by portraying Russian revolutionaries as pawns of an international Jewish conspiracy. Unfortunately this deceitful plan worked all too well and a counter-revolution took place in which many Russian Jews were massacred. Hitler used the Protocols to generate hatred of Jews among the Germans. In Mein Kampf, he claimed that attempts by the Jewish press to expose them as a forgery were "the best proof that they are genuine after all ..." Author Konrad Heiden, an anti-Nazi contemporary of Hitler, stated that "Today the forgery is incontrovertibly proved, yet something infinitely significant has remained: a textbook of world domination." Although the Protocols were made to seem like a Jewish plot, it is believed that they were actually the doctrines of the Illuminati secret society. Some of the more pertinent points include: Protocol 1 -- the plan "will remain invisible until the moment when it has gained such strength that no cunning can any longer undermine it." Protocol 4 -- "The minds of the masses must be diverted toward industry and trade. Thus all the nations will be swallowed up in the pursuit of gain and ... will not take note of their common foe." Protocol 5 -- "We shall create an intensified centralization of government." Protocol 6 -- "We must develop a super-government by representing it as the protector and benefactor of all those who voluntarily submit ... We shall soon begin to establish huge monopolies." Protocol 9 -- "We have fooled, bemused and corrupted the youth of the masses by rearing them in principles and theories which are known to us to be false." Protocol 12 -- "The majority of the public have not the slightest idea what ends the press really serves. We shall saddle it and bridle it with a tight curb ... Not a single announcement will reach the public without our control." Protocol 13 -- "The need for daily bread forces the masses to keep silent and be our humble servants ... In order that the masses themselves may not guess what they are about we further distract them with amusements, games, pass-times, passions ..." Protocol 15 -- "When we at last definitely come into our kingdom by the aid of a coups d'etat prepared everywhere for one and the same day ... we shall make it our task to see that against us such things as plots shall no longer exist." Protocol 17 -- "In our program one-third of the masses will keep the rest under observation from a sense of duty, on the principle of volunteer service to the state." Protocol 18 -- "Until dissenters commit some overt act we shall not lay a finger on them but only introduce into their midst observation elements." Later protocols deal with taxes and banking, effectively describing what is now our national debt and the Federal Reserve System. They even brag that "'Economic crises have been produced by us ... by no other means than the withdrawal of money from circulation." The Protocols proclaim that "By all these methods we shall so wear down the nations that they will be forced to offer us world domination." Even though these things were written well over a hundred years ago they have startling relevance today -- it would seem that all the protocols except for the final "coup d'etat" have been realized. In 2003, the U.S. State Department tried to prevent Egypt from broadcasting a week-long documentary about the Protocols."
THE P2 LODGE
"Propaganda Masonica Due, AKA the P2 Lodge, was founded in Italy in 1877 to serve Italian Freemasons visiting Rome. A man named Licio Gelli gained control of the P2 in 1966 and increased its membership from fourteen to nearly a thousand. Gelli was also a member of a Freemason group called the American Order of the Knights of Malta, whose membership included former CIA directors John McCone and William Casey, as well as former secretary of state Alexander Haig. Italian journalist Mino Pecorelli, also a P2 member, claimed the CIA was funding P2 (a charge echoed by CIA contract agent Richard Brenneke in 1990). Pecorelli was later murdered. In 1981 Italian authorities discovered a plot by the P2 Lodge -- it was a carefully designed plan to fabricate so much "leftist" terrorism that the Italians would demand an authoritarian or even fascist government. This plan was described in a document called "The Strategy of Tension" found in Gelli's home. Also found was a list of the names of his fellow Freemason conspirators, which included three cabinet ministers, forty members of parliament, forty-three military generals, eight admirals, as well as security service chiefs, police chiefs of four major cities, industrialists, financiers, entertainers, and many journalists, diplomats and civil servants. Gelli, a paid CIA contact and honored guest at President Reagan's inauguration, was the mastermind of what the Italian court called a "secret structure that had the incredible capacity to control a state's institutions to the point of virtually becoming a state within a state." The plan was evolved from "Operation Gladio", created just after WW2 by CIA official James Jesus Angleton, supposedly to prevent a Communist takeover in Italy. "Gladio" tactics involved creating alliances between the Mafia, Vatican, CIA, and the Knights of Malta. Several investigators have said that a major force behind the P2 Lodge was the highly secret Freemason Grand Alpine Lodge of Switzerland, which former British prime minister Harold Wilson claimed has more power than any government. The P2 Lodge was implicated in several acts of terrorism beginning with the 1980 bombing of a Bologna train station in which eighty-five people were killed. During subsequent trials a prime minister (and friend of Gelli) being tried for mafia involvement named Henry Kissinger as a character witness. Italian prime minister Aldo Moro was kidnapped and murdered, supposedly by leftist terrorists -- however both his own wife and a close associate testified that Kissinger had told Moro to halt his stabilizing policies or he would "pay dearly for it." The P2 case caused a major scandal in Europe but was curiously ignored by the U.S. media, even when it grew to implicate Vatican officials, Henry Kissinger, and American Catholic bishop Paul Marcinkus. New York DA Frank Hogan, who prosecuted several local Mafiosi for involvement in the P2 plot, attempted to extradite and prosecute Marcinkus as well, but was blocked by White House intervention.
THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS
In 1919, Colonel Edward Mandell House and several members of society's elite, all with connections to secret societies and international banking, met in Paris to discuss the formation of an "Institute of International Affairs". This institute was for the purpose of guiding public opinion toward acceptance of a one world government through the process of "globalism" (Colonel House was the author of a 1912 book entitled 'Philip Dru: Administrator', which described the goals of establishing a central bank, a graduated income tax, and the control of both political parties ... two years after its publication, two, if not all three of his literary goals had become reality). The English branch became the Royal Institute of International Affairs, while the U.S. branch was called the Council on Foreign Relations. Article 2 of the CFR's bylaws stated that anyone revealing details of CFR meetings could be dropped from membership, thus qualifying them as a secret society. Early funding for the CFR came from bankers such as Morgan, Rockefeller, and Warburg, the same people behind the formation of the Federal Reserve System. Today, CFR funding comes from major corporations such as Xerox, General Motors, Bristol-Meyers, Texaco and others. It is also funded through the Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund and many more. The Council even offers a "Corporation Service", though which subscribing companies are provided twice-a-year dinner briefings by government officials such as the treasury secretary or CIA director. Author Kenneth Galbraith, who resigned from the CFR, asks: "Why should businessmen be briefed by government officials on information not available to the public, especially since it can be financially advantageous?" The CFR's invitation-only membership today numbers well over three-thousand, representing the most influential leaders in finance, commerce, communications, and academia as well as nearly all past and present senior U.S. government officials who deal with international matters. The Council has stated that it is merely "a unique membership organization and think tank that educates members and staff to serve the nation with ideas for a better and safer world." Critics dispute this goal, noting that the CFR has had its hand in almost every major twentieth century conflict. A study of the Vietnam War shows that nearly all of the most important advocates of U.S. involvement in Vietnam were from the CFR. The fact that almost no one is aware of this, even though we've all heard about the Vietnam War all our lives, shows the level of control this organization (in union with other such organizations) has over our society. The CFR also insured that financing and trade continued with the same communist nations that were providing North Vietnam with funds and materials to fight U.S. troops. It was also CFR member, Robert McNamara, serving as Secretary of Defense, who vontinually cut back on U.S. military capabilities and formulated the policies forbidding strategic air strikes in North Vietnam. These "rules of engagement" were declassified and published by the Congressional Record in 1985, showing how these policies greatly increased U.S. casualties and insured North Vietnamese victory In 1978, after the war ended with a communist takeover of South Vietnam, McNamara became president of the World Bank (a for-profit agency of the U.N. and CFR pet project) and coordinated a $60 million loan for the victors. A study of the Korean War also shows how the CFR had their hands in both sides of the conflict, and prevented General McArthur from taking any effective military action. A CFR article at the time explained: "The meaning of our experience in Korea ... is that we have made historic progress toward the establishment of a viable system of collective security." This is another way of describing a world government. CFR member Dean Acheson actually admitted: "The only reason I told the president to fight in Korea was to validate NATO." The CFR were also the main force behind the formation of the U.N. -- even the land the U.N. building is built on was donated by the Rockefeller family. The public face of the CFR is its publication 'Foreign Affairs' ...even the Encyclopaedia Britannica acknowledged their influence, stating: "Ideas put forward tentatively in this journal often, if well received by the Foreign Affairs community, appear later as U.S. government policy or legislation." CFR member Admiral Chester Ward admitted: "CFR, as such, does not write the platforms of both political parties or select their respective political candidates, or control U.S. defense and foreign policies. But CFR members, as individuals, acting in concert with other CFR members, do." Every U.S. government administration since the Council's inception has been packed with CFR members. Conservative journalist James Perloff noted: "Through 1988, 14 secretaries of state, 14 treasure secretaries, 11 defense secretaries and scores of other federal department heads have been CFR members." In fact, nearly every CIA director has been a CFR member, including George Bush. According to published reports, the Clinton administration was top-heavy with more than one hundred CFR members (including Clinton himself), and currently more than a dozen members of both the House and Senate belong to the Council as well. If CFR membership were in the millions this would not be so surprising, but at only a few thousand it shows a clear attempt to control the government from both sides. The late author Gary Allen said in 1972 of the national elections: "There really was not a dime's difference. Voters were given a choice between CFR world government advocate Nixon and CFR world government advocate Humphrey. Only the rhetoric was changed to fool the public." The elections of 2000 were really no different -- the choice was between "Democrat" Al Gore and "Republican" George W. Bush., both of whom have strong business and family ties to corporate/banking interests and CFR members.
THE TRILATERAL COMMISSION
Former CFR chairman David Rockefeller, possibly in an effort to deflect public attention from CFR activities, instigated the creation of a more public offshoot organization: The Trilateral Commission. The Commission, officially formed in 1973, publishes its membership as well as position papers, but its inner workings are kept secret. The concept for the TC was brought to Rockefeller by Zbigniew Brezinski, a man who has openly called for one world government in his books. In 'The Grand Chessboard' he writes that America must dominate the world through its foreign policy for the next several years before giving way to a world government, at which time the sovereignty of all nations will be dissolved. This would be a cashless society with a "global taxation system" and pervasive surveillance technology to prevent any uprising against it. In explaining that a cooperative hub, such as the Trilateral Commission, might set the stage for future consolidation, Brezinski says: "Though the objective of shaping a community of developed nations is less ambitious than the goal of world government, it is more attainable." Like the CFR, TC funding comes from tax exempt foundations such as the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Lilly Endowment, as well as from corporations like Time, Bechtel, Exxon, General Motors, Wells Fargo, etc. Commission spokesmen stress that the group does not receive any government funding, yet most of the original members are now in government positions where they implement policy recommendations of the Commission which they, themselves, prepared on behalf of the Commission. For instance, the TC published a paper in 1975 called "The Crisis of Democracy" in which one of the authors, Samuel P. Huntington, claimed that America needed "a greater degree of moderation in democracy." The paper suggested that leaders with "expertise, seniority, experience, and special talents" were needed to "override the claims of democracy." Three years after his paper was published, Huntington became a member of Carter's National Security Council ... in this capacity, Huntington prepared Presidential Review Memorandum 32, which led to the creation of FEMA, an organization with the power to take totalitarian control of government functions in the event of a national "emergency". During Carter's presidency, the government was packed with 39 Trilateral Commission members -- more than a coincidence when you consider that the total TC membership is only about 300 people. Concern spilled over into veteran's organizations in 1980 -- the American Legion national convention passed Resolution 773, which called for a congressional investigation of the TC and CFR. The following year a similar resolution was approved by the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Congressman Larry McDonald (a vocal critic of the TC and CFR who died in the still controversial downing of Korean Airlines flight 007 in 1983) introduced the resolutions in the House of Representatives ... nothing came of it. During the 1980 presidential campaigns, Ronald Reagan went on record blasting his competitors, Jimmy Carter and George Bush, for their membership to the Trilateral Commission and vowed to investigate the group if elected. Reagan even pledged not to allow Bush a position in the government. Inexplicably, Reagan then completely changed his tune and actually made Bush his running mate. Once elected, Reagan never again uttered a word against the TC and CFR. In fact, almost everyone in his 59 member transition team were members of either the TC, CFR, or Bilderberg group. CFR members were appointed to three of the nation's most sensitive offices; secretary of state Alexander Haig, secretary of defense Caspar Weinberger, and secretary of the treasury Donald Regan. Realize that at the top of the government pyramid there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans: Bill Clinton was a member of the CFR and TC, yet so was his political "adversary" George Bush. In the public arena these two fought it out like schoolyard brats, but behind the scenes they both serve the same master. Late senator and presidential candidate Barry Goldwater warned of this when he said: "David Rockefeller's newest international cabal 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. What the Trilaterals truly intend is the creation of a worldwide economic power superior to the political government of the nation-states involved. As managers and creators of the system they will rule the world."
