• Meetings in Tokyo, Chicago, Virginia part of NWO battle plan
By James P. Tucker, Jr.
The Trilateral Commission (TC) held its annual meeting April 21-22 at the Hotel Okura in the heart of the business district in downtown Tokyo. Some 400 were in attendance. Over the course of the weekend gathering, the globalist group sought to advance its goal of world government, in spite of righteous populist anger directed at international banking elites for bringing about the collapse of economies around the world.
Founded in 1974, the TC was set up by international banker David Rockefeller to foster closer economic ties between Japan, Europe and North America. Since that time, many TC figures have served in high posts in American presidential administrations, both Democrat and Republican alike.
Although Ronald Reagan effectively condemned the internationalist worldview of the TC in his 1980 campaign for president, he actually welcomed the group to the White House during his presidency, perhaps no surprise since Reagan’s vice president, George H.W. Bush, was a founding TC member.
TC is essentially a junior affiliate of Bilderberg, the most exclusive and secretive club in the world, which was largely established under the auspices of the European-based Rothschild banking dynasty.
Waggish students of the two groups say while TC membership includes university professors, bankers and business executives, to be invited to the annual Bilderberg meetings on a regular basis, you have to own a multinational bank, a multinational corporation or a country.
While not widely publicized, TC gatherings are generally more open, in contrast to Bilderberg, which meets in secret at luxurious resorts every year behind armed guards. This year, U.S. Ambassador to Japan John V. Roos hosted a welcome reception for attendees at the U.S. Embassy Residence in Tokyo.
Among other things, this year’s series of talks focused on the upcoming presidential elections, upheavals in the Middle East and, of course, the ongoing global economic crisis. China’s growing power and influence in the region also figured prominently at the confab, as did the continuing controversy surrounding North Korea’s military ambitions.
Joseph S. Nye Jr.—longtime associate of the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs—serves as chairman of what is called the “North American Group” inside the TC.
Since 1975 AFP editor emeritus James P. Tucker Jr. has won widespread recognition for his reports on the intrigues of global power blocs such as the Bilderberg Group. Tucker is the author of Jim Tucker’s Bilderberg Diary. Containing 272 pages, loaded with photos, the book recounts Tucker’s experiences over the last quarter century at Bilderberg meetings. $25 from AFP plus FREE S&H inside the U.S.
In Tokyo, Trilaterals Push Global Partitioning
• Top movers and shakers of Asia, America, Europe plan to intertwine economies
By Grace Oyama
TOKYO—Japanese hosts of the Trilateral Commission expressed strong support for the Bilderberg goal of partitioning the world into continental trading blocs, establishing for example an “Asian-Pacific Union” similar to the current European Union.
Bilderberg also wants an “American Union” so the world is lumped into three great regions for the administrative convenience of a world government under the United Nations.
“The Asian-Pacific Union will open up trade and improve our economy immensely,” said Hiroaki Fujii, chairman of the Mori Arts Center in Tokyo, former ambassador to the United States and advisor to the Japan Foundation, who hosted this year’s meeting. His words were vigorously applauded.
The focus of the talks this year largely revolved around catch phrases like “multipolarity,” “intertransparency” and “eco-connectedness”—words that imply global economic intertwining, which has long been the goal of globalist groups like the Trilateralists and Bilderberg. At the same time, concepts of state nationalism, individual sovereignty and protectionism were roundly eschewed by speakers.
There was a distinct lack of direction and leadership due to the fact that David Rockefeller is getting up in years. In addition, attendance was noticeably down. One can hope this is related to the negative publicity internationalist groups have been receiving thanks to exposure from independent newspapers like AMERICAN FREE PRESS and journalists like Jim Tucker.

Globalists Push Massive Far East Free Trade Zone
By Mark Anderson
As AMERICAN FREE PRESS recently reported, former U.S. ambassador to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Nicholas Burns told a Chicago gathering on March 28 that the 28-member, traditionally defensive military alliance is fast becoming “the first responder” of the world and seeks a bold eastward expansion to possibly absorb Japan, Australia, India and New Zealand, among others.
Burns’s revealing remarks before nearly 400 people, sponsored by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs (CCGA), officially kicked off a brisk series of meetings and programs, public and private, leading to the Windy City’s first-ever hosting of a summit of NATO ministers, to happen at McCormick Place May 20-21. AFP will be there.
Yet, another little-known CCGA speech two days later by longtime Australian official Kim Edward Beazley revealed more about NATO’s plans, as the alliance, created in 1949 to counter Soviet expansionism, morphs into a hair-trigger “top cop” for those constructing a world union under the broad planning of the Bilderberg group, in league with a host of world government consensus-builders, including the CCGA and similar World Affairs Councils that reach down to the grassroots.
The Bilderberg group is a Rothschild-and Rockefeller-oriented annual, by-invitation-only meeting of 120 to 140 very rich guests, who gather to plan how to make bigger profits from world events.
Dozens of like-minded think tanks and academics round out this coterie in pursuit of such a world union, comprised mainly of the troubled European Union, a planned American Union, an African Union and a Pacific Union. Whether these building blocks for world rule stand or fall depends a great deal on what moves the globalists make at this juncture, and how quickly counteractions happen amongst an informed populace.
Beazley suggested that the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP, a “super-NAFTA” free-trade scam that these one-worlders want to foist on the Far East to bolster the pending Pacific Union, is a critical goal for global governance. Given the context in which he announced the perceived need for a TPP, it’s highly likely the TPP will be a specific topic, as part of NATO’s eastward expansionism, at the NATO summit itself.
The TPP is pending in Congress. The watchdog group Economy in Crisis of Dublin, Ohio and other pro-middle class groups are monitoring it. They describe it as a dragon that must be slain to avoid a total economic calamity here and abroad.
Meanwhile, various devotees of global governance are carrying out myriad tasks. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who’s been exceedingly busy preparing for the NATO summit, just spoke in Washington at the Export-Import Bank, amid the spring meetings of the Bilderberg-connected World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF). The G-20 met just before the World Bank and IMF did, even as the G-8 will meet at Camp David, Md. in mid-May, having been moved out of Chicago where it was going to coincide with the NATO summit.
