Sir Keir Starmer: The Trilateral Commission and Jeffrey Epstein

Keir Starmer and Jeffrey Epstein

The Washington Post is the publication that brought to light ‘The Watergate scandal’ it revealed to its American readers a conspiracy that shook a nation, The same newspaper also brought to light the truth about the ‘Trilateral Commission’ an organisation with dark connections to what’s termed the ‘Deep State’ the title of that publication was:


Behind closed doors, they meet hidden away. Some call them “the shadow government,” “the Establishment,” the “global elite” that runs the world.

They call themselves simply … The Trilateral Commission.

There are plenty of conspiracy theories about the Trilateral Commission. This 47-year-old organisation helps make that easy work. They range from, anti-democratic, anti-Christian or anti-worker, that it is scheming ultimately to abolish the sovereignty of nations and establish a one-world government! However, sometimes you don’t need conspiracy theories, the truth is far more shocking.


Most reporters/journalists or commentators tend not to explore or bring to light anything remotely conspiratorial, it ruins reputations and allows others the ability to scorn at the readership. Real investigative journalism died a very long time ago. Today we are spoon feed directly by the ‘fourth estate‘ for the mainstream our views are channelled directed and manipulated.

George Orwell writes: “If publishers and editors exert themselves to keep certain topics out of print, it is not because they are frightened of prosecution but because they are frightened of public opinion. In this country, intellectual cowardice is the worst enemy a writer or journalist has to face, and that fact does not seem to me to have had the discussion it deserves.

It is no secret that over the last four decades, mainstream media has been consolidated from dozens of competing companies to only six. Hundreds of channels, websites, news outlets, newspapers, and magazines, making up ninety percent of all media are controlled by very few people—giving people the illusion of choice.

But in the interest of democracy, we should always have an informed society. Almost every democratic theorist or democratic political actor sees an informed electorate as essential to good democratic practice. Citizens need to know who or what they are voting for, who they choose to represent them, and who and what are their associations. The very reason we have a members interests bill.

It should, therefore, be very concerning when we find that the Labour Party Leader Sir Keir Starmer is a member of an organisation that believes, we the people have too much freedom. Too much democracy.

An organisation that believes the working class and the masses should be removed from any democratic process leaving the issues of democracy and government to the elite, the establishment.

It is therefore incumbent on all Labour Party members to understand that Sir Keir Starmer is a member of such an organisation, a very powerful undemocratic organisation that advocates a ‘New world order‘ one in which the people’s role in government and democracy is greatly reduced.

The Foundations of a new world order

In 1973, David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski founded the Trilateral Commission. Involving highly influential people from business and politics in the US, Western Europe, and Japan, the Commission was soon perceived as constituting an embryonic or even shadow world government.

This global governance and body of international diplomacy should be considered a product of overlapping elite networks that merge informal and formal spheres across national borders.

An organisation that was created to spread neoliberal free-market values across the globe, that now finds itself having to recreate its form and mission to manage the spread of nationalism, populism and protectionism all of which they vehemently oppose.

Advocates of a new world order

Critics accuse the Commission of promoting a global consensus among the international ruling classes in order to manage international affairs in the interest of the financial and industrial elites under the Trilateral umbrella.

Preposterous, say members of the Trilateral Commission. It is merely a “discussion group” on world affairs, composed of high-level corporate and public-policy types from North America, Western Europe and Japan. The commission seeks only to promote international cooperation, for the betterment of everybody. Nothing sinister.

Its annual reports and task force papers are available for the public to read. Its membership list isn’t secret. Just ask and the commission will send you stuff. Anyone who can dial directory assistance can get their New York phone number.

Still, plenty of ordinary, educated people have no idea what the Trilateral Commission is or what it does, even though its former members include some very prominent people including US presidents Jimmy Carter, George Bush, Bill Clinton to name drop but a few.

The Trilateral Commission is led by three regional chairs for Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific regions. The regional chairs have several deputies and an executive committee. The entire membership meets annually in rotating locations to consider their strategies and organisational platform. Regional and national meetings are held throughout the year. Regional headquarters are in Washington, D.C., Paris and Tokyo.

The Trilateral Commission wields its power economically and politically. It is sometimes considered a “rich men’s club” with few women members. The Trilateral Commission espouses support for private enterprise, economic freedom and stronger collective management of global problems. Its members include influential current politicians, banking and business executives, media, civic, and intellectual leaders and several union chiefs.

The Trilateral Commission’s agendas sync with those of the G7 summits between the leaders of the world’s largest economies. Members have held key positions in U.S. administrations and in the governments of other member countries.

Five questions for politicians

Tony Benn

If you have ever wondered how Sir Keir Starmer could go from being first elected in 2015 as a Labour MP to Labour Leader in 5 years, That’s one parliamentary term, maybe look at his friends and the organisations he belongs to.

Sir Keir Starmer: Trilateral commission member Labour Leader

Sir Keir Starmer seems to be doing a good job at pitching himself as being on the Left. He and his supporters make claims he will “unite the party” while emphasising his so-called “Left-wing credentials” with such outtakes as this:

You may hear that in his twenties he edited a Trotskyist magazine. Or that he was the defence barrister for the miners out on strike in 1984/5. That he stood alongside McDonald’s’ workers on picket lines.

But there is one association Sir Kier Starmer and his supporters are not talking about…

The Trilateral Commission, members include top executives of multinational conglomerates such as AT&T and ITT. Oil companies such as Mobil and Exxon, but also the top C.E.Os of the Chase Manhattan Bank, First Chicago Corp, General Electric, TRW, Archer Daniels Midland, Pepsi, RJR Nabisco, Nissan, Toshiba, Fuji Bank and Goldman Sachs.

“I pledge allegiance to the Trilateral Commission, and to the domination for which it stands, one planet, indivisible, with tyranny and poverty and top-down order for all…”

LINK Trilateral membership January 2020

Starmer’s name first appeared on the membership list of the Trilateral Commission in April 2019. Out of 650 MPs, he was the only one invited to become a member. These perhaps aren’t the sort of people Sir Keir would see as an ideal photo opportunity or use in his campaign highlighting his “lefty credentials”.

What we have is Sir Keir Starmer part of an elitist group. One that Holly Sklar, who edited a book on the organisation entitled Trilateralism:

“The Trilateral Commission and Elite Planning for World Management”. It identifies as the commission that “represents the interests of multinational corporations and banks”. This means it is contrary to the interests of so-called ‘non-developed countries and workers the world over.

It wants wages kept low. It wants voters kept apathetic and polarised.

Sklar states that the Trilateral Commission “is not a conspiracy” and is not “omnipotent… “But that doesn’t mean it’s not influential.” And the Commission set out to economically “co-opt” OPEC to persuade the Saudis to put their petrodollars into Western banks and to purchase Western arms, rather than investing in the ‘developing’ world.

In an explosive interview with two Trilateral Commission members, highlighting how much political power can be controlled in the hands of a few, this stunning piece of forgotten history, a 1978 conversation between a US reporter and two members of the Trilateral Commission.

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, and that the people who were running US national policy (which includes trade treaties) 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 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.

People often misunderstand how the game works. In the area of US foreign policy, for example, they focus on the long-standing rats’ nest called the State Department.

Well, they should. But that bureaucracy implements policy. It doesn’t really formulate the basics. The basics come from higher on the food chain.

The Globalist movement—within which the Trilateral Commission is a leading force—dictates a “one-world” theme. Separate nations and their power should be melted down and folded into one planet-wide management system.

This system would ultimately determine worldwide production quotas for goods and services and their distribution. Energy, in particular, is a prime target. How much will be created? Who will benefit? Who will suffer?

The US federal government and other governments around the world are currently trying to bring us closer to that “utopian day.”

Who sits in the shadows pulling their strings?

Here is another question that has the same answer: who is in charge of undermining free markets and thus taking down economies?

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

trilateral commission
Trilateral commission 1973

It’s called the Trilateral Commission (TC).

Keep in mind that the originally stated goal of the TC was to create “a new international economic order.”

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, to 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.”

The 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.

How does a shadowy group like the TC accomplish its goal?

One basic strategy is: to destabilise nations; ruin their economies; ratify trade treaties that effectively send millions and millions of manufacturing jobs off to places where virtual slave labor does the work; adding insult to injury, export the cheap products of those slave factories back to the nations who lost the jobs and undercut their domestic manufacturers, forcing them to close their doors and fire still more employees.

And then solve that economic chaos by bringing order.

What kind of order?

Eventually, 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.”

Noam Chomsky: Neoliberalism Is Destroying Our Democracy

How elites on both sides of the political spectrum have undermined our social, political, and environmental commons. 

Chomsky on Crisis of Democracy by Trilateral Commission

Noam Chomsky says the Trilateral Commission’s aim is to bring about a moderation in democracy to allow only the elite to vote. A backwards step in democracy and the working class movement.

Social critic and academic Noam Chomsky criticised the commission as undemocratic, pointing to its publication, ‘The Crisis of Democracy’, which describes the strong popular interest in politics during the 1970s as an “excess of democracy”. 
Chomsky described it as one of the most interesting and insightful books showing the modern democratic system not to really be a democracy at all but controlled by elites. 

Apathy and obedience.

Two documents came out right in the mid-’70s, which are quite important. They came from opposite ends of the political spectrum, both influential, and both reached the same conclusions. One of them, at the left end, was by the Trilateral Commission—liberal internationalists, three major industrial countries, basically the Carter administration, that’s where they come from.

That is the more interesting one [The Crisis of Democracy, a Trilateral Commission report]. The American rapporteur Samuel Huntington of Harvard, he looked back with nostalgia to the days when, as he put it, Truman was able to run the country with the cooperation of a few Wall Street lawyers and executives. Then everything was fine. Democracy was perfect.

But in the ’60s they all agreed it became problematic because the special interests started trying to get into the act, and that causes too much pressure and the state can’t handle that. We have to have more moderation in democracy.

The cure for democracy is more democracy.” He said,
“No, the cure for this democracy is less democracy.

“The cure for democracy is more democracy.” He said, “No, the cure for this democracy is less democracy.”

This is the liberal establishment. This is a consensus view of the liberal internationalists and the three industrial democracies. They—in their consensus—they concluded that a major problem is what they called, their words, “the institutions responsible for the indoctrination of the young.” The schools, universities, and churches, they’re not doing their job. They’re not indoctrinating the young properly. The young have to be returned to passivity and obedience, and then democracy will be fine. That’s the left end.

Now, what do you have at the right end? A very influential document, the Powell Memorandum, came out at the same time. Lewis Powell, a corporate lawyer, later Supreme Court justice, he produced a confidential memorandum for the US Chamber of Commerce, which has been extremely influential. It more or less set off the modern so-called “conservative movement.” The rhetoric is kind of crazy. We don’t go through it, but the basic picture is that this rampaging left has taken over everything. We have to use the resources that we have to beat back this rampaging New Left which is undermining freedom and democracy.

Connected with this was something else. As a result of the activism of the ’60s and the militancy of labor, there was a falling rate of profit. That’s not acceptable. So we have to reverse the falling rate of profit, we have to undermine democratic participation, what comes? Neoliberalism, which has exactly those effects.

Chomsky says that as it was an internal discussion they “let their hair down” and talked about how the public needs to be reduced to its proper state of apathy and obedience. Essentially liberal internationalists from Europe, Japan and the United States, the liberal wing of the intellectual elite. 

The Trilateral Commission are concerned with trying to induce what they call a “more moderation in democracy”—turn people back to passivity and obedience so they don’t put so many constraints on state power and so on. In particular they were worried about young people. 

They are concerned about the institutions responsible for the indoctrination of the young (that’s their phrase), meaning schools, universities, church and so on—they’re not doing their job, [the young are] not being sufficiently indoctrinated. They’re too free to pursue their own initiatives and concerns and you’ve got to control them better.

Critics accuse the Commission of promoting a global consensus among the international ruling classes in order to manage international affairs in the interest of the financial and industrial elites under the Trilateral umbrella.

An example of Government influence

Barack Obama appointed eleven members of the Trilateral Commission to top-level and key positions in his administration within his first ten days in office. This represents a very narrow source of international leadership inside the Obama administration, with a core agenda that is not necessarily in support of working people in the United States.

Obama was groomed for the presidency by key members of the Trilateral Commission. Most notably, Zbigniew Brzezinski, co-founder of the Trilateral Commission with David Rockefeller in 1973, has been Obama’s principal foreign policy advisor.

According to official Trilateral Commission membership lists, there are only eighty-seven members from the United States (the other 337 members are from other countries). Thus, within two weeks of his inauguration, Obama’s appointments encompassed more than 12 percent of the Commission’s entire US membership.

Trilateral appointees include:

* Secretary of Treasury, Tim Geithner

* Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice

* National Security Advisor, Gen. James L. Jones

* Deputy National Security Advisor, Thomas Donilon

* Chairman, Economic Recovery Committee, Paul Volker

* Director of National Intelligence, Admiral Dennis C. Blair

* Assistant Secretary of State, Asia & Pacific, Kurt M. Campbell

* Deputy Secretary of State, James Steinberg

* State Department, Special Envoy, Richard Haass

* State Department, Special Envoy, Dennis Ross

* State Department, Special Envoy, Richard Holbrooke

Trilateralist Brent Scowcroft has been an unofficial advisor to Obama and was a mentor to Defense Secretary Robert Gates. And Robert Zoelick, current president of the World Bank appointed during the G.W. Bush administration, is a member.

Connections to the Dark side

Jeffrey Epstein

Jason Cridland and David Hitchen from the Dorset Eye write: In 2019 the Commission published a report with the express aim of becoming more en vogue. The rise of Trump and other right-wing neoconservative governments and parties has meant that the free market has come under attack. Neoliberalism and neoconservatism was always a contradiction (as Thatcherism and Reaganism found out) and the lurch to the political right has had a negative effect upon the ideals of the economic right. 

The Trilateral Commission has sought to reinvent its doctrine in the face of increasing suspicion, certainly of globalisation and its impacts upon nation-states but also in cases in which some people have become increasingly aware of the deep state in which the Trilateral Commission, Davos, Bilderberg, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) are significant parts.

To add to their problems there are those whose behaviour could somewhat tarnish their already suspect reputations including among the most prominent, Jeffrey Epstein, former hedge fund manager and convicted sex-trafficker

Birds of a feather, flock together.’ It is almost certain that some current and former members of the elitist Trilateral Commission who participated in Epstein’s follies are likely very nervous that he would ‘flip’ and expose their debauchery, if not their sexual felonies.’ This, of course, has now been ‘avoided’ as Jeffrey Epstein ‘officially’ took his own life in August 2019. LINK

Let’s take a closer look at Mr. Epstein, shall we.

One of the most surprising things about Epstein is that he is a member of some of the most powerful and influential groups in the US.

He’s a member of:

  1. The Council on Foreign Relations
  2. The Trilateral Commission
  3. Trilateral North American Group



Aside from Clinton who are the people that Epstein is associated with?

  1. Prince Andrew
  2. Alan Dershowitz
  3. Larry Summers
  4. Donald Trump
  5. Ehud Barak
  6. Eliot Spitzer
  7. Kevin Spacey
  8. Peter Mandelson

Powerful associates, including Bill Clinton, Donald Trump and Prince Andrew, have had their conduct scrutinised in the wake of the ongoing scandal.

Lord Peter Mandelson, now Sir Keir Starmer’s second within the Labour party shadow cabinet is also a trilateral commission member he was also a very good friend of Kevin Kevin Spacey and Epstein’s former lover Ghislaine Maxwell, here he is staying on the island of Saint Barthelemy where the pictures were taken.

Peter Mandelson shopping with Jeffrey Epstein both Trilateral commission members

But it is suggested the two may have met on other occasions.

In 2011, Virginia Roberts – who claims she was a sex slave to Epstein – said that she was introduced to Mr Mandelson at a dinner party at the financier’s house in New York.

She said: “I never heard of Jeffrey knowing Tony Blair, but he did know Peter Mandelson. I remember him being at the house in New York and I was introduced to him at a dinner party.

One of Britain’s most powerful politicians wasn’t afraid to phone Jeffery Epstein looking for a favour — even while the paedophile was behind bars for sex crimes, according to a new documentary.

A new “Dispatches” documentary set to air on Britain’s Channel 4 Monday claims Lord Peter Mandelson was Labour Business Secretary in 2009 when he called Epstein — then cooling his heels in a Florida jail after pleading guilty to procuring an underage prostitute — trying to arrange a meeting with the boss of JP Morgan bank, according to The Sun.

The pedo and the politician were seemingly so close that Epstein even had a pet name for the UK cabinet member — calling him “Petie,” according to the report. LINK

“I must say I was astonished that a British Cabinet minister at that time, probably the most powerful man other than the Prime Minister, was calling Jeffrey in jail,” a friend of Epstein’s who revealed the call told the documentary.

Here are some of the people that have current (past) membership in elite organizations.

Members of all three: CFR, Trilateral, Trilateral N.A. include

David Rockefeller Sr., Harold Brown, John Deutch, Mortimer Zuckerman, Richard Holbrooke

Democracy has to be about more than just casting a vote. An informed society creates a better more open democracy. A democracy that does not have an informed public is destined to decay. Unjust legislation would be passed, laws would be unequally enforced and elected officials would fall to corruption.
