My response to Bob Livingston’s article, ‘Islamic terror and the great deception’

My response to Bob Livingston’s article, “Islamic Terror and the Great Deception”

by Jon Rappoport

February 18, 2015

In his important article, “Islamic Terror and the Great Deception,” Bob Livingston describes how recent US Presidents have continued to wage war against “terrorism,” when in fact their true goals have been quite different:

For example, keeping Middle East nations from nationalizing their precious oil supplies. For example, justifying tighter and tighter control over the lives of US citizens, in order to “protect them from terrorist attacks.”

I want to add a piece to the puzzle.

War is a permanent US government policy. Make no mistake about it. Who sets the policy? Who keeps it intact, despite legislators and Presidents exiting and entering office?

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 war) 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 in the White House, a willing pawn, a rank con artist, a hustler.

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.”

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.”

Okay. Here is a close-up snap shot of a remarkable moment from out of the past. It’s through-the-looking-glass—a conversation between reporter, Jeremiah Novak, and two Trilateral Commission members, Karl Kaiser and Richard Cooper. The interview took place in 1978. It concerned 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 Trilateral member 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.

KAISER: It just hasn’t become an issue.

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

US economic and political policy (including war-making) run by a committee of the Trilateral Commission—the Commission had been been created in 1973 as an “informal discussion group” by David Rockefeller and his sidekick, Zbigniew Brzezinski.

The Matrix Revealed

When Carter won the presidential election, 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.

How does a shadowy group like the TC accomplish its goal? One basic strategy is: keep making war. Destabilize nations. Invent endless enemies. Through war, create chaos.

And solve that chaos by bringing order. What kind of order?

One planet, with national borders erased, under one management system, “for the good of all, for lasting peace.”

  1. Jon, there is a layer of control in our world that you seem to ignore. I suggest you watch the YouTube videos of Benjamin Freedman, beginning with his ’61 speech in Washington. He was a Zionist insider and broke with them after WWII. Also read Henry Ford’s articles from the Dearborn Independent from 1920-1, later published in “The International Jew”. Also, read the recent book by Nicholas Kollerstrom entitled “Breaking the Spell”, published earlier this year. Writing it cost him his job. He demonstrates that there were not 6M Jews killed in WWII and much of the testimony at Nuremberg was made up. He does it using some basic science and research.
    In my view, the Trilateral Commission is just a tool. Watch the videos by David Cole (a Jew) from 20 years ago showing that there were no gas chambers at Auschwitz. The evidence on this is now unequivocal. Perhaps your own Jewishness blinds you, as it does most Jews. Sadly, most Jews are just pawns in the Zionist game, yet they are convinced otherwise.
    I will share more evidence of this on my blog in the coming days.
    Perhaps you are more caught inside the consciousness you believe you are seeking to liberate others from. Until I see you expose this, I can only conclude this is true. Sad, but true.
    Look at the evidence, Jon, which you claim you do. It is unequivocal.

    Alex Jones has been warning people about that, since he’s been on the air, 20 years ago. He was called a tin foil hat. Even today, some pseudo intellectuals, will still not listen to his show.

    He even made films about it. Here is one:

    It will take all the Imagination in the world to defeat these psychopaths. And time is running short for us.

    I was thinking about all that last night, and I realized that some dual reality is still tolerated in this world:

    – Allopathic medicines versus Alternative medicines.
    – GMO’s versus Organic foods.
    – Vaccines vursus Vitamins
    – MSM versus alternative media internet sites.

    So, I came out with this idea:

    What if all of the alternative internet media sites, came together to create a dual reality huge network on television?

    Imagine, Jon Rappoport, Alex Jones, Ben Swan, Ron Paul, Jerome Corsi,, Paul Craig Roberts, Gerald Celente, judge Napolitano and many more, including famous whistleblowers on your television screen every night of the week, reporting on what is really going on in this world?
    It would be devastating for the Elites.

    These people could easily fund their Network with alternative medicine advertizing, who would hurt Big Pharma and maybe destroy them completely. And also with alternative solutions to block every dirty trick the Elites create to enslave us.

    Citizens could put posters on every available place they find to advertise the new network . Also huge billboards would appear everywhere on traffic jammed highways. It would soon be known by everyone. The MSM would soon lose all of their audience.

    We would have to find a stunning name for the Network who would cover all the “What, Who, When Where, Why”.

    Too bad a Canadian network has already used the name: W5 for it’s news broadcasting. It would have been perfect for us. But we will find something even more powerful.

    Anchors would be rotating, depending on the subject of the day. And they could also advertise their internet sites. That means, more comments on their site, so more ideas will pop up.

    What do you think about this idea? Is it possible?
    I think so.

      But then you replace one type of consensus with another…nes’t pas Q.
      Duality will always polarize, that is it’s nature…it always has polarized… if you look at history from that perspective.
      The ‘Us vs Them’ dichotomy as is apparent in politics, religion, education, GMO’s, health, etc, ad nauseum…is never going to be resolved.
      And why?
      Because the underlying context is egoic senses, especially emotion…one camp is empathic, altruistic, imaginative and concerned with equality and self governance, fairness and justice. To say the least.
      While on the other hand the opposing camp lives by a credo of survival of the fittest, greed, a fundamental God belief system, eye for eye justice, and a strong fist leads the world.
      These are simple a few of generalizations one could come too in regards to these problems we face…our problems are multifaceted with sutleties and individual details that are I grant lost in my translation. We have all become enemies of each other…
      To join together in like minded alternative news media into a network like the MSM will only cause another form of mind control. An opposing form of mind control. And that when thought of rationally is a extremely loaded thought. I would say.

      A discovery of ones own Individualism is the only way up…eyes wide open…awake…with a diehard need for truth and honesty. A exercised imagination expressed through the creative power of individuals. A deep understanding that we are simply custodians here on planet earth. And that the only way we all survive is by leaving the planet better than you found it. But really that is a purely communist ideal. Equality for all. Or we all get to go to hell together.

        It’s: “N’est-ce pas?”…lol
        I’m not really laughing at you, I myself, make so many errors in English writing, that I must make you crack up sometimes.

        I understand what you are saying. But the goal would be to transmit information to people who never heard of these things before. To convince yourself, just take a look at some of Mark Dice videos. Not everybody goes or knows about internet alternative media, but most people listen to the television news.

        People do not like to be slaves. So if a majority knows about the Elites plan, maybe we will be able to succed in destroying it.

        “A discovery of ones own Individualism is the only way up…eyes wide open…awake…with a diehard need for truth and honesty.”

        The Elites have constant meetings to realise their plan. One elite alone would go nowhere.

        ” A exercised imagination expressed through the creative power of individuals.”

        Yes, but most people are afraid of their own imagination, they believe they will lose their sanity…lol.
        By the way, I didn’t see you on the two last posts of “Outside the reality Machine”. I miss you there.

        “While on the other hand the opposing camp lives by a credo of survival of the fittest, greed, a fundamental God belief system, eye for eye justice, and a strong fist leads the world.”

        Here I agree fully with you. These people are so depressing.

        I still believe it would be a good idea to have a new network, exposing the Elite’s plan.

        • Michael Burns says:

          Thank-you for the French lesson ‘Mr french grammar expert’ your so gracious…merci buckets…lol.
          I didn’t know we were on formal terms. I stand corrected…okie dokie.
          I admire your heart Q, you seem to like to wear it on your sleeve. Courage is the only condition I could see that would explain your care of the masses. I agree with you to a point…but I also understand, that those of us who think and are individual…stand with very few others. For the most part we are surrounded by morons, knuckle dragging, God fearing, self appointed alphas. Who only understand an invisible chain of command. And will never break from the “survival of the fittest’ which really is a eugenics issue.
          We, as a society, have a family dynamic, that is neither loving or family in the greater sense of that word. We have lost the understanding of what true parentage means. Family is a micro of the macro of elitist ideology. Whither first born, last born and middle born into psychologies that explain their successes and failures. I hear so many simple say it’s genetics. When they haven’t a clue of what that means. Genetics is the biggest bullshit line to date.
          For me Alex Jones represents fear mongering as a job. I’m sure he started out as a concerned individual. And probably is still quite radical in his heart. How much difference is there between him and an elitist. His website sells a lot of product…and he is a controlled opposition.
          Money and power is the perfect brainwashing tool as its purpose is addicting and corrupting. It’s like trying to convince one that there is a good side to heroin…you can make morphine, a powerful pain reliever from it. But morphine is still heroin.
          To have alternative media coalesce into a network opposing MSM is exactly what elites would want…its a perfect solution.
          They don’t want to have to deal with individual opinions spread all over the internet like a virus. It’s like trying to herd cats. If you have all the goldfish in same barrel. Divide and conquer is well proved tactic to destroy opposition.
          Have you paid any attention to the in-house fighting over the problem of getting GMO’S labeled or any of the most common plites against big corporation these days.

            Fisrt, I have a question for you:

            How can people fight corruption and tyranny if they don’t even know it exist in their countries and through out the world?

            “They don’t want to have to deal with individual opinions spread all over the internet like a virus.”

            Of course not, this is why I’ve mentionned in my post:
            Anchors would be rotating, depending on the subject of the day. And they could also advertise their internet sites. That means, more comments on their site, so more ideas will pop up.

            Concerning Alex jones, I wouldn’t be so harsh on him. I’ve been listening to his show for 10 years on a daily base. Everything I know about the NWO, false flags, vaccines, GMO’s, fluoride, corruption, tyranny, eugenics, the Federal reserve, wars, etc., I owe it to him.

            I don’t think he is fear mongering, because everything he was saying 10 years ago, are now happening. I think he is trying to open eyes, find solutions to fight all that and find ways to protect ourselves meanwhile..
            Sure, he sells products to fund his operation, I see no problem with that. And he also has real good products.

            Now, a bit of French for you:

      I came up with a similar idea. Instead of a top-down effort, my idea was bottom-up. It sets up lots of commercial, Internet-based, neighborhood radio stations.

      I’ve been trying to get it going for about a year and a half now. You wouldn’t believe the flack I’ve received. It’s convinced me that I’m really on to something.

        Very interesting indeed and surely doable. You have a lot of imagination creativity and logic A perfect combination for success..

        And you also have a powerful resumé:

        “M. J. Sperry Pm. is a futurist & writer living in San Diego. He is an “out of the cage” free thinker, who brings to his writing innovation and creativity honed from years in industry in Southern California. There he was as a successful troubleshooter for hire, a troubleshooter of “unsolvable” problems. He left that lucrative work behind fourteen years ago, to devote his time and talents to the unraveling of the most formidable problems he’s yet tackled, those of government and society.”

    Good article Jon, even though I have read some of it before.

    This fits in with Atheist-Darwinism, misconstrued (or manipulated) “Draco” “survival of the fittest”, “type” civilisations (spruiked by NWO “muppet” Michio Kaku).

    Those “Terminator” movies are THEIR reality and that what they have in store for YOU.

    To answer your question they do know government and corporation are corrupt. Social network have pages and pages on these matters…Alex Jones is on Facebook with a following of 800,000…amongst others social networks he is on.
    Psychopathic behavior is being pick up by the general public, as the proper way to succeed in this paradigm.
    You make a lot of sense though Q, and I have thought seriously about what you suggest…consensus homogenized ideas though. And that is what bothers me. Some who don’t completely agree will compromise and give up power in order to gain another type of to power their cause…or should I say similar cause.

      They are convinced that I am a tin foil hat weardo..

    all that Jon and others have mentioned, (most, I am on the fence with Alex jones) I understand. If the media could ever, be brought down, and truth told perhaps people would then see, maybe.. I am continually amazed at the behavior of the majority, I do not understand how they continually deny when so much information has been exposed… My hope is that truth is continually expanding in our collective consciences. I hardly watch any tv I cannot tolerate the ridiculous, but the extent of this programming is amazing, just amazing. Why some see it and most don’t? that is a question that continually perplexes me…

  9. mary says:

    let me add that when 9-11 happened I was among the many who believed terrorism must be checked. Now I laugh at the reports, if you read them, the ideas put forth are just insane. I have even wondered how do we really know the extent of the terrorist killing is real? could it be sensationalized? yes, it can. As I write this, a family member has tv news on and being reported how London teenage girls are heading to turkey to join Isis. and people believe this crap..The “guys” at the top have got to be enjoying this insanity

    .As far as not trusting alex jones, I am cautious as to why he and many others are still standing… we live in a very complex deception

      .”As far as not trusting alex jones, I am cautious as to why he and many others are still standing… we live in a very complex deception”

      Well, at first, they just ignored him. Then they ridiculed him, calling him a Tin foil hat. They tried every dirty trick to discredit him.

      And now he is winning the info war.

      So now that he has such a hude audience, conservatively 22 million and more a week, (six hundred millions on just one YouTube documentary alone), plus top expert guests from every country in every field of life, I believe they are afraid that if they shut him down or kill him, that it will grant him credibility. So I believe it is too late for them to shut him down now. They have underestimated his power for too long.

      Besides, he now has a great studio, plus an incredible crew who can do the show when Alex is out of town.

      Plus, Alex doesn’t push violence, he doesn’t want a civil war, He much prefers to win an Info war.

      And also, maybe the fact that his audience is mostly composed of religious believers who will not stand on their own, but are waiting for the Rapture to save them,,,lol.

    Getting the word out is so very important as Alex Jones has shown.

    I think your idea of a new media is quite worthy.

    If you’re in Canada, a US-Canadian partnership “peoples” news network might be a nice move wouldn’t you say?

    Jon, thought you would appreciate this. Wow is all I can say.Right in our face, all the way back then. Thinking more and more these guys have access to a timeline that we simply do not.
