It is a surprise, but frankly Tucker has had him on several times in the past week so no fresh ground for Joorch to tread here - worth a listen just to see how soft the questions are. ???

For the record I donít think Carter was a great president but he was a decent man who was compromised by the same people who controlled your hero, GHW Bush. Canít wait for your huur durr establishment response. :D

He was a bad enough Prez that it took Obummer to reset the scoreboard on him. Commission Formed

The Trilateral Commission was formed in 1973, and it is widely perceived as an off-shoot of the Council On Foreign Relations. According to Christopher Lydon, writing in the July 1977 Atlantic, "The Trilateral Commission was David Rockefeller's brainchild." At the time, David Rockefeller was Chairman of the Council On Foreign Relations, having been elected to that post in 1970. David Rockefeller became the founding Chairman of the Trilateral Commission, which consists of leaders in business, banking, government and mass media from North America, Europe, and Japan invited to join by Rockefeller himself.

The word "Trilateral" means "three-sided" - the three sides in this case being North America, Europe,and Japan. North America, Europe and Japan have several things in common. Most important is their wealth, which is derived primarily from industrial production. Even agriculture is industrialized in the sense that farmers in the Trilateral countries use large amounts of machinery.

The industrially-generated wealth of the Trilateral countries is a product of their technological advance over the rest of the world. Kenichi Ohmae, in his book Triad Power notes that as of 1981, the Trilateral countries produce about 90% of the airplanes manufactured world-wide; about 80% of the computers;over 70% of the cars and similar proportions of other high-technology products.

Perhaps more telling, Ohmae notes that "...the vast majority of new patents registered and exchanged among Free World countries are concentrated within five nations: Japan, the United States, West Germany, France and the United Kingdom. During 1982, these five nations represented 85 percent of the 10,000 patents registered in the world." (page 126)

The industries of Europe and Japan are very dependent on imported raw materials and imported oil, as is, to a lesser degree, the United States.

As noted, the Trilateral Commission was founded in 1973, in the midst of the Middle East oil crisis. The ostensible cause of the oil crisis was a decision by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries to dramatically raise the posted price for oil, with the price hike enforced by limited production quotas for each member country.
In 1973, the U.S. was winding down its involvement in Vietnam. The Vietnam War had proved to be a costly mistake, and had turned a majority of the American people against the idea of military intervention in other countries.

Despite this, the Democrats in 1976 nominated Jimmy Carter, who had supported the Vietnam War, and who, upon election included pro-war advisors in his inner circle. His National Security Advisor was Zbigniew Brzezinski, who had been a founder of the Trilateral Commission. Jimmy Carter himself had been recruited into the Trilateral Commission in the summer of 1973.

Richard Barnet, an analyst with the Institute for Policy Studies, observed that "The Trilateral Commission was barely mentioned in the 1976 campaign. When the Carter cabinet was announced, a few columnists noted the coincidence that so many of them belonged to Mr Rockefeller's new organization. By the time Jimmy Carter ran for a second term, however, the Trilateral Commission was a major campaign issue..."

And so it was. Supporters of Ronald Reagan attacked both President Carter and Republican hopeful George Bush for their Trilateral Connection.

Did you really go back and get cuckshacked at ellgab again?

Are you guys really think that Bart Ell is Keith Rowland ??
Does he has that much time to interact on EllGab and do his other work?
Finally a reasonable question from you - let's just say they work hand in hand and leave it at that...

Please post tits. Please.
I'm sure I am not the only one who likes to see them. :)

I guess it depends on when one first encountered Whitley and his craft.

I recall being surprised that the author of "Wolfen" and "The Hunger" was less of a Stephen King type and had a far broader range than I imagined.

That said he's had books adapted into screenplays across multiple decades:

Is he really that famous? I consider him irrelevant.

Fame is his, as an author anyway. Suffice to say he's not just prolific he's a master of both fiction and non fiction. I highly commend "Majestic" to you.

I was raised Catholic and it took me many years to realize why I'd always fall asleep in church. It's because masses are the opiate of religion.

Didnít we already have this discussion, Ellgab mole?

It's not a "discussion" Dr. Safe Space, it's an observation.

Jesus, youíre starting to sound like Dave Schrader.  ::) ;D

Well that stings! :(

I donít have the time to go back through each example. Iím honestly not in disagreement with you on a number of things like your stated support for Perotís general platform however calling Bush 2 a logical choice?  The guy who delivered unto us the massive social program of Medicare part D as a wolf in sheepís clothing?

Please demonstrate for the any logic in the choice of the Goreon?

We conservatives  had a choice, we had mostly Bush's governance resume in Texas to go by, and frankly McStain might have been far worse had he broken from the pack and taken the nomination, agreed?

Vote your principles not the lesser of two evils.  Iím not suggesting Al Snore wouldíve been better by any means but you have to just reject the paradigm complete win the long game.

A 3rd party vote remains by any measure a wasted vote.

I also am flummoxed at you buddying up to the self proclaimed Antifa wacko.

And who is this person?

I am confused by anyone who would essentially try to buddy up to anyone who would without hesitation brain you with a bike lock or fling their poop at you like an animal if you did as much as attend a rally for something like the constitution party. After all theyíre on the infallible SPLCís hate groups list donítcha know.

More or less Iím just confused by your apparent fluctuations.

Of course, that's the drug of the Hegelian sort - an either/or decision tree is like a quarterback with only 2 receivers.

Y'know, Metron is just one of those folks who spreads joy everywhere he goes. I've never come away with a bad vibe after interacting with Metron!
May I return the compliment, your interactions with me have been rewarding and insightful.

Uggh...the Christmas cheer bug has got me good!

I donít at all hate the constitution party in fact Iíve voted that way. You must misunderstand many originalist principles.

This sounds like what you might say to prep the public for a tolerant response to a violent crackdown.
