Why 2022 is 1973

Klaus Schwab is Zbigniew Brzezinski

I wrote the following piece five years ago. It describes an elite group— whose globalist goals have been exported to the World Economic Forum (WEF), headed by Klaus Schwab.

Remember David Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission? They’re still around. But their quiet style has been replaced by the big brassy in-your-face Schwab circus: WE’RE TRANSFORMING THE WORLD. OKAY? WE ADMIT IT. ACHTUNG, BABY.

Let’s revisit the Trilaterals. It’s instructive. There are a few shockers. Here we go:

Who is in charge of destroying borders and separate nations?

One group has been virtually forgotten. Its influence is enormous. It has existed since 1973.

It’s called the Trilateral Commission (TC).

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.

In 1969, four years before birthing the TC with David Rockefeller, Zbigniew Brzezinski wrote: “[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.”

Goodbye, separate nations.

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.”

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

Here is a stunning piece of forgotten history, a 1978 conversation between a US reporter and two members of the Trilateral Commission. (Source: Trilateralism: The Trilateral Commission and Elite Planning for World Management; ed. by Holly Sklar, 1980, South End Press, Pages 192-3).

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 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 an agent of the Trilateral Commission in the White House. He had been plucked from obscurity by David Rockefeller, and through elite TC press connections, vaulted into the spotlight as a pre-eminent choice for the Presidency.

The following 1978 conversation featured reporter, Jeremiah Novak, and two Trilateral Commission members, Karl Kaiser and Richard Cooper. The interview took up the issue of who exactly, during President Carter’s administration, was formulating US economic and political policy.

The careless and off-hand attitude of Trilateralists Kaiser and Cooper is astonishing. It’s as if they’re saying, “What we’re revealing is already out in the open, it’s too late to do anything about it, why are you so worked up, we’ve already won…”

NOVAK (the reporter): Is it true that a private [Trilateral committee] led by Henry Owen of the US and made up of [Trilateral] representatives of the US, UK, West Germany, Japan, France and the EEC is coordinating the economic and political policies of the Trilateral countries [which would include the US]?

COOPER: Yes, they have met three times.

NOVAK: Yet, in your recent paper you state that this committee should remain informal because to formalize ‘this function might well prove offensive to some of the Trilateral and other countries which do not take part.’ Who are you afraid of?

KAISER: Many countries in Europe would resent the dominant role that West Germany plays at these [Trilateral] meetings.

COOPER: Many people still live in a world of separate nations, and they would resent such coordination [of policy].

NOVAK: But this [Trilateral] committee is essential to your whole policy. How can you keep it a secret or fail to try to get popular support [for its decisions on how nations will conduct their economic and political policies]?

COOPER: Well, I guess it’s the press’ job to publicize it.

NOVAK: Yes, but why doesn’t President Carter come out with it and tell the American people that [US] economic and political power is being coordinated by a [Trilateral] committee made up of Henry Owen and six others? After all, if [US] policy is being made on a multinational level, the people should know.

COOPER: President Carter and Secretary of State Vance have constantly alluded to this in their speeches. [a lie]

KAISER: It just hasn’t become an issue.

This interview slipped under the mainstream media radar, which is to say, it was buried.

US (and other nations’) economic and political policy run by a committee of the Trilateral Commission—the Commission created in 1973 by David Rockefeller and his sidekick, Zbigniew Brzezinski.

When Carter won the presidential election (1976), his aide, Hamilton Jordan, said that if after the inauguration, Cy Vance and Brzezinski came on board as secretary of state and national security adviser, “We’ve lost. And I’ll quit.” Lost—because both men were powerful members of the Trilateral Commission and their appointment to key positions would signal a surrender of White House control to the Commission.

Vance and Brzezinski were appointed secretary of state and national security adviser, as Jordan feared. But he didn’t quit. He became Carter’s chief of staff.

Now consider the vast propaganda efforts of the past 40 years, on so many levels, to install the idea that all nations and peoples of the world are a single Collective.

From a very high level of political and economic power, this propaganda op has had the objective of grooming the population for a planet that is one coagulated mass, run and managed by one force. A central engine of that force is the Trilateral Commission.

—One planet, with national borders erased, under one management system, with a planned global economy, “to restore stability,” “for the good of all, for lasting harmony.”

And one day in the future, a student would ask his teacher, “What happened to the United States?” And the teacher would say, “It was a criminal enterprise based on individual freedom. Fortunately, our leaders rescued the people and taught them the superior nature of HARMONY AND COOPERATION.”

    beginning in 1989, I was on the Prodigy Bulletin Boards, chiefly entitled “Nonfiction books”, where people posted about the Tri-Lateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Along with zbiggy, Henry Kissinger was an author of our destruction, at least he expressed how to get people in line, predictive of false flag terror attacks (9/11). i am wondering why Henry Kissinger failed to show up in this post. I am really glad you posted this–people have no idea how evil these Trilaterals were/are. thank you!

      Some of us have been trailing the Trilateralists for years, just as the Bildeberg “group” has been behind much of the details too.

        Pilgrim Society, Club of Rome, Rhode’s Kindergarten and various others. One agenda, many fronts and faces. To confuse the goyim cattle, project an impression of unrelated groups, while all originate and serve one source- Rothschild and NWO. Carroll Quigley laid it out 60 yrs ago

    Jimmy “Habitat For (What’s Left Of) Humanity” Carter? There was a billboard on I-95 in 1979 as I hitchhiked, which read, “We, the farmers of Plains, GA., apologize for putting Jimmy Carter in the White House.”

    And Henry “Power is an aphrodisiac” Kissinger’s natsec memorandum #200 – basically, depop by starvation:

    Like Janet, I vividly remember the events outlined in this post, especially the visceral feeling of doom that came with them. How do you stop a runaway train when everyone “in authority” is invested in the crash?

    Almost 50 years has passed and their biggest accomplishment is that their faces have gotten older and uglier. Yes they had their lockdowns and face diaper parade until people said, “Enough” but what have they actually accomplished in all this time? They got most of their fake fiat currency accrued to their own accounts, despoiled their home planet and tried to blame it on “all those useless carbon life forms.” They built some granite “guide stones” in Georgia to let us know we’re all dead meat, but still issue edicts and threats from behind a curtain of secrecy, deceit and dark ritual magic. They still traffic in children, worship dark gods, and ride around in yachts and planes and celebrate their atrocities with lavishly inane parties. They’re still boring as hell and always will be.

    Our only option is and always will be how we choose to live our lives as pure, loving souls despite all their lies and mischief. Be thankful you have a soul to guide you, all they have is a strange owl effigy and some freakish goat being that eats children.

  7. Jim S Smith says:

    I remember a floor speech made by Earnest Hollings in which a recording of it was aired on a local talk show years ago. He exposed the influence of the Trilateral Commission in the US CONGRESS and virtually all of the decision-making.

    Good luck finding any reference or record of that powerful speech today!

    It was a real mind-blower, and he spoke with such authority and detail about the TC.

  8. Vakzine Machst Frei says:

    First thing they did was Europeans and Americans dumber. Significantly dumber. I have no idea how they did it. GMO? water? vaccines? drugs? all of the above?

    Now they can do anything they want; the epsilons won’t understand anything. But the society will collapse. I see the signs of this at a lot of corporations. They are changing the process so dumber and dumber people could work there. but even so, it is too much for some. meaningless for others

  9. MollyMalone says:

    Thank you Raven. While I agree with Jon, and am so grateful for his courage and his incisive mind, I also agree with you and your evident ability to see through the translucence of their lies and recognize something that I often miss. Your comment made me think and consider, and it gives me hope.

  10. BDBinc says:

    With the globalist central banking cabal (and their multinational corps and trilaterals) we’ve never had anything but the the political concept of “nations”. We just had their national corporations that are called govts that are national AND global( unknown to most) .
    Their appointed( not elected) Presidents are just media spokesmen for the corporation.

    Quite a few years back, with the TPPA, the bankster’s global shadow govt came out of the closet to the point where anyone could see ( if paying attention).

    Some really, really, really bad ideas never die or go away. They just keep spreading like a poisonous fungus.

    “Why 2022 is 1973″

    2022 is also like 1913. See the creation of the so-called Federal Reserve… which many have long pointed out is NOT Federal and HAS NO RESERVES.

    Also known more properly as Thieves and Blood Suckers and Counterfeiters that contribute nothing to the health of the American Body.

    More truth-in-advertising from the Predator Class.

    Keep raking in the skim, heroes.

  13. From Elsewhere says:

    So unbelievably true, that press and people stand still, frozen, without any reaction. Dead.

  14. Gerard says:

    “the idea that all nations and peoples of the world are a single Collective.” Yes, there certainly is a extra-nationally ‘single collective’ and ‘they’ call it Freemasonry.


    Yes; we have religions world wide collective entities, who operate and control in level of Spiritual Intelligence.May I add that Spiritual Intelligence is the Highest of all Intelligence. As Christ Jesus will reign over all the for a thousand years. The world is preparing for such a season, and there is nothing any power of collectives that will be able to halt such an event for the sake of the Righteous and Chosen of God the Father.

      Amen!!! Truth can not be stopped. God has always let us know what He is going to do before He does it. These clowns are going to stand in front of Jesus and answer for their crimes, all of them.

    “Fortunately, our leaders rescued the people and taught them the superior nature of HARMONY AND COOPERATION.”

    How very Chinese/Mao-ish of Rockefeller, a great admirer of all things Chinese. He detested Americans, harping about their Constitution and Freedom, and that Legacy has only increased in his passing in 2017. This latest Planned Scamdemic and Economic Implosion defines Pure Hate towards Humanity. Our only choice is to Resist them with all our might in every way we can. They will continue to tell their lies and partial truths to confuse and divide. Before it’s over, billions will be dead, just as they want and planned.

    wow according to this article democrat POTUS’s carter and obama seem to have been up to their necks in the TC agenda, but no mention at all of the republican bush cartel who’s big daddy POTUS H.W. bush actually informed all of us little poops that “we will have a New World Order whether you want it or not”, which would embroil his predecessor puppet POTUS reagan as well wouldn’t it. and what about POTUS jr bush and his neocon Project for a New American Century, which by it’s name would suggest that they were at odds with the TC agenda, but IMO was just a smokescreen for the further dissolution of american freedom.

    anyway, a casual reader of this article might determine that all of this is the fault of democrat enablers but many of us know that every vulture has both a left-wing AND a right-wing.

    1973 was the year the movie “Soylent Green” came out. The fictional year of the story was 2022. Coincidence?

    Was Ronald Reagan our last hope or was he another instrument?

    • Scamitis says:

      Back in the day, (not very long ago, maybe 2 years), I was still under the illusion that Republican generally good and Democrat bad almost 100%,I thought Reagan was one of the best. This, along with our (Australian) great conservative Prime Ministers – Menzies and Howard. Well, that nonsense has been shattered and all the ugly truth is bared for all who will see.
