Patrick Wood On Caravan To Midnight

A Video Review From Elias Alias, Editor


 “The C.F.R. is the American branch of a society which originated in England. Internationalistic in viewpoint, the C.F.R., along with the Atlantic Union Movement, and the Atlantic Council of the U.S., believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established … What the Trilaterals truly intend is the creation of a worldwide economic power superior to the political government of the nation-states involved. As managers and creators of the system they will rule the world … In my view, the Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power: political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical.” (With No Apologies, [1979], the auto-biography by Senator Barry Goldwater, pp. 128, 284). 


The New International Economic Order

Patrick Wood has been in the trenches fighting for America for many years. He was co-author with the late Antony C. Sutton of the two-volume classic, “Trilaterals Over Washington”. His original “August Review” has morphed into the August Forecast. He speaks at events, such as the upcoming Arizona Freedom Fest. Patrick’s latest book is “Technocracy Rising“.

This video is three and a half hours in length. Below the video are some points of interest for readers who are reluctant to start into a film that long.  I hope that the text below will influence motivated readers to make time to enjoy seeing Patrick Wood and John B. Wells on the screen – they deliver a great show, with a great ending.

Super-revelations from Patrick Wood.

In late March, 2015, John B. Wells of Caravan To Midnight hosted for three and a half hours a man who is America’s foremost researcher on the Trilateral Commission. Many in the Liberty movement already know that Patrick Wood co-authored with Antony C. Sutton the now-famous “Trilaterals Over Washington” (in two volumes). Personally, I began to follow Patrick Wood about ten years ago when I discovered at his website a fascinating article he had written about the Bank for International Settlements. I began subscribing to his newsletter, and that is how I received notice that Patrick Wood was interviewed by John B. Wells.

From his interview with John B. Wells I have taken down a few notes to share with readers here. Mr. Wood’s latest book, Technocracy Rising, is packed with facts and information, and its contents are the focus in this video interview. The interview gets started early by discussion of the Trilateral Commission’s employment of Technocracy’s principles and their “New International Economic Order”, with mention of the Trilateral Commission’s goal of “transforming government”. By about 24 minutes into the video we see that more than just government is being transformed. Wood lists seven of their primary targets as being:

1. Economics
2. Government
3. Religion
4. Law
5. Energy
6. Humanity
7. Christianity

“Who” is to do all this “transforming”?

1) the Trilateral Commission;

2) Technocracy;

3) the United Nations; and

4) Non-Government Organizations (NGOs).

We note that neither the American People nor the Congress of the United States of America are party to the transformation. Technocracy and Trilateralism and the United Nations and Non-governmental organizations are the four horses on which the New International Economic Order is riding into our lives. Keep that in mind as we go.

Mr. Wood gives us things to notice, things being used by Technocracy to “transform” us:

1. Agenda 21
2. sustainable development
3. smart meters
4. climate change
5. cap and trade
6. the Green Economy
7. Human enhancement (Trans-Humanism: the merger of man and machine, literally)

As John B. Wells allows Mr. Wood to lay it all out in full, supporting knowledge is provided to the viewer to flesh-out the above listings, plus more. John B. and Patrick discuss “Scientism”, and Patrick Wood offers a passage by the “father of Technocracy”, Henri de Saint-Simon:


A scientist, my dear friends, is a man who foresees; it is because science provides the means to predict that it is useful, and the scientists are superior to all other men.(End Quote)


Scientism Is Central To Technocracy


Technocracy Logo

Science shall tell us what to do, as evidenced by myriad manifestations ranging from regulating how long one may spend in one’s shower at home to the EPA’s wish to outlaw wood-burning stoves to central regulation of one’s thermostat from downtown, to the elimination of privately-owned single-dwelling homes and private automobiles as called for by the United Nations’ Agenda 21. Scientism is at the base of Technocracy. Here are some notes from Patrick Wood regarding Scientism:

1. The application of scientific methods to social and political modeling
2. Science is the absolute and only access to truth and reality about man and the universe
3. Scientism is specifically opposed to the Holy Bible as truth
4. Scientism upholds Atheism – there is no God
5. Scientism purports to be predictive, able to foretell the future
6. Scientism rejects any opposing inquiry
7. Scientism demands acceptance by non-scientists

Scientism is defined at Wikipedia this way:

“Scientism is belief in the universal applicability of the scientific method and approach, and the view that empirical science constitutes the most authoritative worldview or most valuable part of human learning to the exclusion of other viewpoints.”

 In the three and one-half hour video interview by John B. Wells of Caravan To Midnight Patrick Wood points out that Ray Kurzweil, a senior scientist for Google, is a trans-humanist. Kurzweil wrote the 2005 book entitled “The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology”. Kurzweil, being a Google hotshot, works with the Chair of the Google corporation, Eric Emerson Schmidt, who is a Trilateral Commission member.

From Wikipedia < >

Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin interviewed Schmidt. Impressed by him, they recruited Schmidt to run their company in 2001 under the guidance of venture capitalists John Doerr and Michael Moritz.
Schmidt joined Google’s board of directors as chairman in March 2001, and became the company’s CEO in August 2001.
In 2013 Schmidt stated that the government surveillance in the United States was the “nature of our society” and that he was not going to “pass judgment on that”. However, on the revelation that the NSA has been secretly spying on Google’s data centers worldwide, he called the practice “outrageous” and criticized the NSA’s collection of Americans phone records
Schmidt was a campaign advisor and major donor to Barack Obama and served on Google’s government relations team. Obama considered him for Commerce Secretary. Schmidt was an informal advisor to the Obama presidential campaign and began campaigning the week of October 19, 2008, on behalf of the candidate. He was mentioned as a possible candidate for the Chief Technology Officer position, which Obama created in his administration. After Obama won in 2008, Schmidt became a member of President Obama’s transition advisory board. He proposed that the easiest way to solve all of the problems of the United States at once, at least in domestic policies, is by a stimulus program that rewards renewable energy and, over time, attempts to replace fossil fuels with renewable energy.

Schmidt and Kurzweil work together at Google and Schmidt is a member in the Trilateral Commission. The Trilateral Commission is the chariot for Technocracy’s scientism. Bear that in mind.


Technocracy: The 1930s to Present


Technocracy originated in 1932 at Columbia University. It was founded by M. King Hubbert and Howard Scott in 1933. In 1934 they were booted from Columbia, but carried forth their Technocracy by writing the Technocracy Study Course. (PDF)

In 1954 Hubbert created “Peak Oil Theory”, and later became known as the “father of the eco movement”.

Patrick Wood gives some characteristics of Technocracy:

By nature it produces volumes of inviolable regulations which are “science based”.

It creates totalitarian control in the end, but is not socialism or communism.

Technocracy seeks to replace price-based economic system with energy-based system — (energy credits).

Communism, Marxism, Socialism, and Fascism are all based on a price-based economic system. Technocracy shifts away from that, so it is neither.


Did we catch that third characteristic of Technocracy above? “…Seeks to replace price-based economic system with energy-based economic system”. That is positively huge! Technocracy is talking about doing away with our way of doing business, our system of money, of monetary exchange, replacing it with “energy credits”, which we may not find authorized in the Constitution — a far cry from coining silver and gold. But of course Scientism, Technocracy, and the thusly-directed geniuses of the Trilateral Commission care not one whit about our Constitution.

At 55 minutes into the video Wood gives us some requirements necessary to make Technocracy work.

1. Register on a continuing basis the 24 hour-per-day basis of the total net conversion of energy.

2. By means of registration of energy converted and consumed, make possible a “balanced load”.

3. Provide a continuous inventory of all production and consumption. [Scott, Howard, et al, Technocracy Study Course, p. 232]Think: datamining.

4.Provide a specific registration of the type, kind, etc, of all goods and services, where produced and where used.

5. Provide specific registration of the consumption of each individual, plus a record and description of the individual.

Today, Mr. Wood notes, we have the technology to do these things. Hence Obamacare, the NSA spying on all Americans, Common Core, fitting students into a master plan, etc., etc.  — data collection gone wild. Combined with the Trilateral Commission’s strong-armed reach into seats of governmental power, Technocracy is quite literally transforming America.




Trilaterals Over Washington


At about the 01:02:35 point in the video we’re given a bit of a timeline regarding the Trilateral Commission.

1. The idea was floated at the 1972 Bilderberg meeting

2. It was created in 1973 by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski.

3. It had 289 hand-picked members.

4. It’s three economic regions of primary focus were Japan, North America, and Europe.

5. There were 97 U.S. members, both “R”s and “D”s.

6. Members are primarily bankers, industrialists, academics, politicians, media, law firms, and NGOs.

In 1976 the Trilateral Commission hijacked the White House / Executive Office. Brzezinski had picked Carter for the White House, and according to Barry Goldwater’s autobiography both Rockefeller and Brzezinski groomed Carter and helped get him in. Then as the American people blinked Carter appointed Brzezinski to be his National Security Adviser. Carter then appointed almost a third of the American Trilateral membership to top Cabinet and Administration posts.

 They took over government on behalf of economic policies for International consolidation which would foster:

1. a New International Economic Order

2. promote interdependence

3. promote “free trade” by dismantling tariffs and trade barriers.

Wood: (quote): “It was an economic takeover but they needed the political machinery to pull it off. Technocracy is not a political system — it is an economic system.” (end quote)

* In June 1992 Bush-41 attended the Earth Summit where the Agenda 21 was born.

* In March of 1993 Clinton announced his “National Partnership For Reinventing Government”.

* In April of 1993 the Agenda 21 book was published.

* In June of 1993 Clinton signed Executive Order 12852 creating the President’s Council on Sustainable Development.

* On September 11, 1993 Clinton signed Executive Order 12862, the “National Performance Review/Reinventing Government”.

* In April of 2005 Bush-43 created the National Intelligence Agency, seating for its first Director John Negroponte, a Trilateralist.

I grew quite excited when next Patrick Wood brought up, at about the 01:11:30 mark in the interview, Brzezinski’s book from back in 1970.  Wood says that “Between Two Ages: America’s Role In The Technetronic Era” is the book which launched the Technocracy and Trilateral movement.


I do not really know Patrick Wood, but have been following his work for about ten years, having first appreciated his writing on the Bank for International Settlements at his website. He chances to be the only man I know of, beside myself, who has a copy of Brzezinski’s “Between Two Ages: America’s Role In The Technetronic Era”. I had run across a copy after viewing Michael C. Ruppert’s 9/11 video in 2002. In 2007 I took my copy of this book to the State capitol of Montana and held it up while speaking before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding some bill which was going through at that time. I showed the Committee members the book and read them a few passages from the book. I will share with you now the passages I read out loud to the Committee.

“The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values…

“Today we are again witnessing the emergence of transnational elites…[whose] ties cut across national boundaries… It is likely that before long the social elites of most of the more advanced countries will be highly internationalist or globalist in spirit and outlook….

“Within a few years the rebels in the more advanced countries who today have the most visibility will be joined by a new generation making its claim to power in government and business… accepting as routine managerial processes current innovations such as planning-programming-budgeting systems (PPBS) … A national information grid that will integrate existing electronic data banks is already being developed…. The projected world information grid, for which Japan, Western Europe, and the United States are most suited, could create the basis for a common educational program, for the adoption of common academic standards….

“The nation-state is gradually yielding its sovereignty. … In the economic-technological field, some international cooperation has already been achieved, but further progress will require greater American sacrifices. More intensive efforts to shape a new world monetary structure will have to be undertaken, with some consequent risk to the present relatively favorable American position.”

Can you believe that? Brzezinski wrote that forty-five years ago in 1970. He could see what was coming in scientific fields, and David Rockefeller could see that Brzezinski was seeing just what the globalist elite had been seeing in the political field. Rockefeller tapped Brzezinski quickly and they co-founded the Trilateral Commission in 1973.  Brzezinski is a very bright mind, but one which leans toward Technocracy and scientism, which ultimately leads to a one-world government system in the political realm and a one-world economic grid with which to control the populations of the earth. Oddly enough, Brzezinski was a professor at the very campus where Technocracy was born in 1932, Columbia University, when Rockefeller (in Rush Limbaugh’s word for it) “plucked” Brzezinski. (As Rush was meaning it, Rockefeller “hand-picked” Brzezinski.)

Brzezinski had used the word “technetronic” in the title of his book. Patrick Wood notes that “Technetronic” and “Technocracy” are closely linked, practically interchangeable.  So let me interject something here please —

Brzezinski was envisioning in 1970 a gradual appearance of a more controlled society. He called it the “Technetronic Era” for Technocracy, in which his book is heavily immersed. He co-founded the Trilateral Commission with that sort of ideology in mind.

Let us pause for about four minutes to allow Mr. Brzezinski to explain himself, courtesy of C-SPAN:

[ot-video type=”youtube” url=””]

Is America’s so-called “war on terror”, which is now turning inward on the American people ourselves, really just a massive promotion by governmental and private sector players who seek to regulate and control the  patterns of traditional American behavior toward the policies desired by an Elite, who are “internationalists” who believe in the power of a totally surveilled societal structure?

That aside, Patrick Wood notes that the U.S. President appoints the head of the World Bank, and that of the eight heads of the World Bank since its inception six have been Trilateralists. Six out of the eight heads of the World Bank is a staggering percentage. But Patrick Wood goes much deeper in looking into Technocracy’s grip on the inner workings of our government. He lists all Presidents and Vice Presidents since Carter who are Trilateralists. He lists all Presidentially-appointed U.S. Trade Representatives who are Trilateralists.  He lists the ten out of seventeen National Security Advisers who are/were Trilateralists. All are named in the video interview by John B. Wells.

The Trilateral Commission is such a small elite group, but they manage to permeate our Federal offices in departments and agencies. They are heavily tied in with the representatives of the military-industrial complex, the machinery of war.

So What Is The New International Economic Order?


Patrick Wood
Patrick Wood

According to Patrick Wood, this new order is:

1. The Technetronic Era

2. A controlled society in which the Elite rule

3. Primary actors and planners of economic life will be global banks and multi-national corporations.

4. A continuous surveillance of every citizen

5. Files containing all information about every citizen will be instantaneously available to authorities

At about two hours into the interview Mr. Wood moves the mark even further. He reminds us of something from UNEP, (the UN’s Environment Programme), called the Green Economy Initiative.  He tells us that “The Green Economy” is Technocracy. According to Wood, a green economy implies a “de-coupling” of resource use and environmental impacts from economic growth. He reminds us that UNEP says:

“These initiatives, both public and private, provide the mechanism for reconfiguration of businesses, infrastructure and institutions, and for the adoption of sustainable consumption and production processes”.

Reconfiguring businesses, infrastructure and institutions means overhauling our very society, our way of life, for openers, and it can and will get much worse as control by the Elite is expanded. Bill Clinton, a failed Rhodes Scholar, did say he would “reinvent government“. This is what he had in mind. Recall, when G.H.W. Bush could not get NAFTA through Congress, Bill Clinton did, and that was just a beginning.

Patrick Wood next reports that the World Council of Churches, at their 2014 “Interfaith Summit on Climate Change” said proudly, the “World’s faiths will declare themselves, irrevocably, as Green Faiths”.

Next we learn about “Reflexive Law” as “Legal Paradigm For Sustainable Development“.

“At the same time, sustainable development’s broad sweep strains our intellectual grasp of its meaning and outruns the capacity of our current legal and political systems to channel society’s activities toward its achievement…there is no doubt that sustainable development needs new paradigms to transform it from visionary rhetoric to a viable political goal. The World Summit on Sustainable Development showed a world desperately seeking effective sustainable development policies and strategies. The desperation was reflected in the new mantra of “governance” and the shifting emphasis in sustainable development measures from “Type 1” traditional regulation and government programs to “Type 2” non-regulatory private or public-private partnership initiatives… This essay will consider whether the sociological construct “reflexive law,” which comes out of the German sociology of law tradition, and some American offshoots such as “democratic experiments” with non-regulatory schemes, might help sustainable development resolve its conceptual dilemmas. Reflexive law has immediate appeal because it speaks to the sustainable development mandate for integrated decision making: it normatively urges social systems or subsystems (such as science, economics, the marketplace, politics, and law itself) to communicate and to interact. Moreover, reflexive law teaches that law works best by specifying procedures for regulated entities to observe in striving for a complex objective like sustainable development,..”  >Link to text:

So Technocracy will put an end to “rigid” law and transform it into reflexive law, all the better to suit the needs of their global government. Remember, “Sustainable Development” is a UN phrase originating in Agenda 21. So now we see that Mr. Wood was correct in his opening assessments, in which he said that the Trilateral Commission’s Technocracy would transform not only government and economics and religion, but also would transform “law”.

But he also said the Trilaterals want to transform “energy”, “humanity”, and “Christianity”. He has laid in the fact that Agenda 21 is being used by Technocracy to transform things, so let’s see what he says about transforming “energy”.

At about 02:15:00 we learn that the Global Smart Grid is both national and international. Mr. Wood points out that the 2009 stimulus money went to energy companies globally to kick-start Smart Grid. At this link we can read:

“There is a new world wide web emerging right before our eyes. It is a global energy network and, like the internet, it will change our culture, society and how we do business.  More importantly, it will alter how we use, transform and exchange energy. There is no energy supply problem, there is an energy distribution problem — and the emerging solution is a new world wide web of electricity.”

In Kerry Cassidy’s interview with Catherine Austin Fitts, Ms Fitts has indicated that trillions of  “stimulus dollars” were dispersed globally. The topic of that interview was the “Black Budget”, which itself is yet another tool in the globalists’ tool chest. We may write and read non-stop into all this madness, only to find that the rabbit hole goes deeper and deeper, branches infinitely into a web of incredible overwhelm. So I will force myself to break this off at this point, in agreeing that we all can see that trans-humanism is a threat to human life as we’ve known it, and that Christianity is indeed under attack in America today. I do not think any reader at Oath Keepers national will want to dispute that.

So in summation, let me simply urge every Oath Keeper to get Patrick Wood’s book, view John B. Wells’ interview with Mr. Wood, above, and reassure oneself that while our problems are giants at the national and international level, they are quite controllable at the local level. In harmony with the philosophy of Stewart Rhodes, founder and president of Oath Keepers, acting locally while thinking globally is the best perspective for the preservation of freedom. Mr. Patrick Wood says the same thing in his offered solutions:

1. Act Local

2. Educate and advocate locally.

3. Saturate meetings of City Council, School Boards, planning/zoning meetings, transportation meetings, etc.

4. Support and educate local Sheriffs.

5. Name and shame those who practice un-American thinking and activity.

6. Serve Misprision of Treason wherever appropriate.

That falls hand-in-hand with Oath Keepers Community Preparedness Team concept as well as with our central mission of educating police and military and firefighter personnel to the meaning in their Oath.

  1. “The dark horse of the New World Order is not Communism, Socialism or Fascism: It is Technocracy.”
    That is a gravity-laden statement by Patrick Wood. When he sent me his book, Technocracy Rising, he included a sheet of paper with some talking points. I would like to offer readers here a sampling of these talking points, while encouraging all Oath Keepers to get his book and study the whole thing. This is the kind of info every freedom fighter needs to know as a foundation upon which one may build informed perceptions of current events and governmental mischief. Get his book here:

    What is Technocracy?
    In a nutshell, Technocracy is a utopian economic system that started in the 1930s and that discards price-based economics in favor of energy of resource-based economics. Technocrats demanded that control over society be given to them instead of elected officials. It is key to understand that it was an economic model designed to completely replace capitalism. Technocracy would result in a totalitarian state, ending national sovereignty and personal liberty.

    What do you mean by “global transformation”?
    The three pillars of society — Economics, Politics, and Religions — are being simultaneously transformed into a state of Technocracy. Europe and China are already largely converted, and the European Union is a good example. Both are run by unelected and unaccountable regulators who exercise god-like control over their respective people.

    Who is responsible for this Transformation?
    The Trilateral Commission, its members and their globalist cronies are the principal drivers for Technocracy. This is demonstrated by their key roles in creating Sustainable Development, Agenda 21, the creation of the European Union and the restructuring of China into an economic powerhouse.

    What is the “green economy”?
    This is the heartbeat of Technocracy — the U.N. defines it as a “decoupling of resource use from economic growth”, which is actually an oxymoron, but is what is happening. Principles of Sustainable Development now take precedence over traditional economic and political policies. The pseudo-science of Sustainable Development affects every area of society and its functions.

    How is government being “reinvented”?
    Traditional government based on geography and local control are being replaced by what early Technocrats called “Functional Sequences.” The best modern examples of this include health care (Obamacare), control over water (Army Corps of Engineers(, land (Councils of Governments(, agricultural practices (Bureau of Land Management), education (Common Core), energy (Department of Energy, Smart Grid), transportation (Metropolitan Planning Organizations), emergency management (FEMA) and so on. This modern reinvention of government started in 1993 when President Bill Clinton signed Executive Order 12862 formalizing the National Performance Review, which was later renamed the National Partnership for Reinventing Government.


    1. Elias, I first became aware of much of this back in 1962 while deployed and in London. It was my own great uncle, Baron Lord Alfred Thomas Denning that spoke of it in Parliament, later enlightening me on the dangers presented.
      For years now I’ve been posting about the Trilaterals, Bilderbergers, IMF, NAU, NWO, Agenda 21, and many others, only to be poo-pooed by the majority. Hopefully this will enlighten many, as it has increased my knowledge, befor things at local levels become impossible to dispel.
      Thank you for presenting this in-depth revelation!

      1. Stingray.SWC, thank you for noting that the remarkable volume of work Mr. Wood has put into this may get good traction. It is interesting that your great uncle actually spoke about it in Parliament. Like you, I’ve done a lot of Internet talking about everything from the Rhodes Round Table groups to the CFR, and have sent a number of people to Patrick Wood’s site over the years — but where you and I could only offer the topic to people while inviting them to “do their own investigating” into it, Patrick has packaged it all up in a way that the public may grasp more readily. I’m all for supporting his work and helping him spread the word. His research is extremely important, as you and i both know. Please send the link to this article to your friends, yes?
        Elias Alias, editor

    2. So what are we to do? I’m not being sarcastic, I’m genuinely interested. Up until I stumbled onto this website, still am thinking that this party(US of A) is over.0

      [Editor’s Note: What to do? First, if you have not already, lend your support to Oath Keepers by joining as a member or as an associate member. Secondly, go get two books which will hone your perception to the point you will not need to ask “what to do?”. The first book to get is “Three Rights” by Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr. The second book is “Technocracy Rising” by Patrick Wood.

      Here is where to go to get these books:
      “Three Rights”

      “Technocracy Rising” at Amazon:
      Or you may wish to buy the book directly from Patrick Wood (scroll this page):

      Patrick Wood has defined “the enemy”, and Dr. Vieira has provided the Constitutional remedy. When one arms oneself with knowledge, one’s path forward to liberty becomes a sequence of steps based on truthful, factual, complete, and Constitutional knowledge. We are Americans. We can defeat the threat, but we must first inform ourselves. Armed with the knowledge in just those two books, one next turns to a neighbor or friend and shares that knowledge. It’s a grassroots process which I refer to as “Each One Teach One”. As Sir Francis Bacon noted, “Knowledge is Power“. Sharing knowledge is a powerful thing to do for our country right now. Thank you for being here.

      You can do it. Do it now.
      Elias Alias, editor]

    3. Elias…thank you for putting it all into perspective and doing such a good job. I must admit I’m still very much in the learning stage, although I did wake up a few years ago to the fact that something sinister was going on in this country.
      However, regarding all this horrendous transformation of America and the world at large, I find it mind boggling that a group, or several groups, that represent this movement to transform America can manage to pull such a thing off! I realize it’s being done incrementally, but still, these evil people have to have ‘enforcers’ to pull it off. These enforcers includes the military, local law enforcements etc. So I’m at a loss to understand how all the elite’s enforcers can obediently follow orders to bring about so much death and destruction upon the population? Surely they have families themselves, and surely not all have hearts made of stone. So how do they justify their actions?
      We had a taste of it during Hurricane Katrina when LEO… and National Guard I believe… went door to door confiscating citizen’s firearms. They did this without anyone fighting back and turning the tables on them? This astounded me beyond words…..and I’m an old lady of almost 80 years of age.
      I’ve heard of various military coups in my life, but I’m wondering if such a thing would take place in the US, and if so, if it would be stopped in its tracks or not. I know that Oath Keepers have a sworn oath, but I’m guessing they don’t have enough numbers to go against whole armies. I’m really wondering about all this and would like another person’s view point?
      Thank you again, and all Oath Keepers for your dedication and loyalty. God bless each and every one of you.

  2. This is my third time listening to Technocracy Rising and I find there is always something that did not get firmly grasped within my mind the time before. Lots of excellent information here!

    One thing, Hillsdale College calls it (basically) rule by “experts”, but this is – in a mild way – being taught there in the free Constitution, etc online classes they have. No where near in depth, but at least it shows that this is getting recognized elsewhere and taught – even if under a different name.

    This is great information and all who will listen to it will find it informative I believe. I know I did.

    Thank You!

  3. The book “Technocracy Rising” – and this video – should be *required* reading for anyone that is concerned about the Globalist interests that have been steadily working against the Constitution for decades.

    Patrick Wood has details, names names, and gets to the root of who is behind this with specific details. If you want to know what the “new world order” really is – THIS IS IT. Please take the time to see the evidence and make up your own mind.

  4. It does not cease to amaze me how quickly all these deliberate changes to our country are being accomplished. It has been possible so far since operating under the radar of the American people and without informed consent. This is all occurring at lighting speed; however if we educate others perhaps we could reverse the damage. Common core concerns me the most for its part of the blueprint nationwide to transform us and most schools are adopting common core without parents having a clue that it will lead down the road to loss of our property Rights among other things such as privacy. We will lose the ability to be secured in our persons and private property so everything is open for grabs for intrusion by the inimical interests. I bought the book and watched the John B Wells interview and its full packed with information so we can prepare for what’s to come. I am hoping enough people will wake-up in time so we can take our country back from the madness of Technocracy society. Also, of its future Scientific Dictatorship once implemented fully that will be worse than Hitler’s Germany and with technology it won’t be reversible. for it will be a total death-like lock down of all civilization.

    1. You Spoke It very well, I might add , “My People Perish from Lack Of Knowledge And Knowledge of The Word of God”. They in some respect work in the Shadows ,& using word’s that are not know to is, & their meaning, so many do not research for themselves These words & Titles, So many don’t know the meaning of Common Core & Agenda 21, I tried a number of Yrs ago with Total transforming USA to Alert to this Evil plot & planning. People must be informed in every possible way we can, thank you to Mr. Wood’s for His Much work in getting this move on The People of the USA, it is never for our betterment , but of taking over Mind, Body & All! that effect us Our Live’s are being attacked to destroy all we once knew & held on to, they can’t destroy our Faith In Jesus our Faith, but it is there to up to try to drum out & destroy Never as long as we have a Heart that beats Blessings stay informed & inform others

  5. Again, Elias brings forth people we need to know, Pat Wood/via J.B.Wells. Agree nearly 100%w/all. The important thing to realize is first, not to get intimidated,over-welmed or depressed, but know that everything can be controlled at the local level. Oath Keepers was a rush of “a well being feeling” when i discovered you, because it is a basis for defence and is progressing. Well done E.A.

    1. Sarge,
      Thanks for your support. I’m very glad you like the article. And yes, everything can be controlled at the local level, and soon I will be posting an article here about Edwin Vieira’s beautiful book, “Three Rights”, which will show us quite clearly just how We The People can reclaim our full right to self-government. America is blessed to have sharp minds writing for the liberty movement, and many of them are seeing the advantages of working together with Oath Keepers to get their work out to a larger audience.
      Thank you again for reading and commenting here Sarge.

      1. Wow!!! Elias… words cannot express how enlightened I feel right now after having read the article. I honestly thought I pretty well knew about all the elite’s schemes for world dominance, but this shows me how lacking I have really been about the complete picture. Still, this has done me a world of good knowing that Oath Keepers is there… just makes me feel very optimistic that we’ll see a reversal of these maniacs’ diabolical plot to rule the world. What kind of twisted minds conjures up stuff like this is mind boggling!
        I will be 80 y/o this year and I never dreamed in this advanced stage of life it would be so full of strife….especially after surviving WWII in England as a young child! I thought that was as bad as it could get, but this sinister movement by global elites is sickening to the core because it is working to eliminate every aspect of human sovereignty.
        I promise this much, I will definitely pass along this valuable information to everyone I know. Oath Keeper’s dedication in helping to rescue our American culture from sociopaths of the NWO cannot go unrewarded and I thank God that your organization exists. I thank you so much for all the people who collectively make Oath Keepers a valiant endeavor. God bless you all.

  6. Very good stuff. I would recommend one additional book for study. This began before 1932. Read “The Forgotten Man” by Amity Schlaes. The documents “The Travelers” where a whole shipload of progressives went from Columbia and other universities to Russia to study Communism and planned economies. They came back and infiltrated our federal government. Their grandchildren are there today. Those children who grew up in Communist homes were called “red diaper babies”. Barack Obama is such a person. Amity Schlaes documents the entire movement. She is a noted economist and the man who is forgotten in all this is the head of the middle class family.

    1. The Old Guide,
      Thank you for turning me onto that book. I’ll try to get a copy, for I’m sure that it will flesh out yet more of what is known of the Progressive movement in the early 1900s. I also am sure that you would be aware of Carroll Quigley’s revelations in “Tragedy and Hope” and also in his “The Anglo-American Establishment”. So we know that the movement in general goes back to the 1890s when Cecil Rhodes created his secret society which later spawned the Council on Foreign Relations, which of course backed the founding of the Trilateral Commission. Deeply runneth the rabbit hole, but thanks to the work of men like Antony Sutton and Patrick Wood, we’re now getting the condensed yet concise synopsis in a way that the mass of Americans can relate to it. I’m very excited by Mr. Wood’s work.

  7. It is time for action by the American people to rid the government of the poison known as the house and senate. It appears that D.C. has become a retirement home for those are interested in the top 1%. There is away for the people to take back what is ours,irregardless what politicians might say or believe. Action needs to be taken now.

    1. @Billy: You are correct, if people can’t see by now what’s taking place and having more head knowledge is great, but its action that gets it done and it is not found in a book!

      1. I agree, info on many things has come out for years, now with internet it comes at lightning speed.
        Info without action is just info.
        Action is a promise to commit till end goal is achieved through all means necessary.

  8. Thank you so much, Elias, for bringing all of this information to us in such a way that we can understand the whole of what’s happening to our country/world. I did the Patrick Wood video in two sessions, and I will start thru it again today. Your review with all the other sources is invaluable. I’ve ordered two books so far, “Technocracy Rising” and “Three Rights”.

    The puzzle pieces are fitting together. I’m already spreading this link far and wide. The more people understand these attempts to control everyone and everything, the easier it will be to see thru programs and/or bills that “sound good”, but are actually evil. We the People are under attack by domestic enemies. It is past time to push back.

    1. Nancy, thank you so much for making time to study the video and order the book(s). This kind of knowledge will empower the people, so I thank you sincerely for spreading the word about this article, Patrick’s book, and Edwin’s book. I am thinking about adding a bit from Three Rights in a reply to someone further down this comment thread, so you will get a tiny sneak preview of the kind of writing Dr. Vieira has now published. I think that Technocracy Rising works very nicely with Three Rights — one showing the character and nature of the problem and the other showing how We The People can use that knowledge by taking appropriate action. Very powerful stuff, Nancy. Thank you for your support.
      Elias Alias, editor

  9. This does put all the pieces together, and is presented very well! It’s good to know Whois behind this mess. Now that we know who the enemy is, we can and will deal! God Bless and Happy Easter! TYVM Elias!

    1. Thank you Parfie! You are more than welcome. I appreciate your support. Keep the Faith, yes? We’ll get it done, and 2015 will be a good year to see tangible results. Knowledge indeed is powerful stuff. 😉

      Elias Alias, editor

  10. I’d like to thank each of you who have studied the material presented. Knowledge is power, and Mr. Wood has furnished much power with his life’s work. I have found another article about Patrick Wood, and would like to add it to this thread now.

    Project Censored 2010 with Patrick Wood

    Project Censored w/ Patrick Wood (2010)- Obama’s Trilateral Team – Link good March 31 2015

    August, January 30, 2009
    Title: “Obama: Trilateral Commission Endgame”
    Author: Patrick Wood
    Student Researcher: Sarah Maddox
    Faculty Evaluator: Peter Phillips
    Sonoma State University

    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 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

    There are many other links in the Obama administration to the Trilateral Commission. For instance, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is married to Commission member William Jefferson Clinton. Secretary of Treasury Tim Geithner’s informal group of advisors include E. Gerald Corrigan, Paul Volker, Alan Greenspan, and Peter G. Peterson, all members. Geithner’s first job after college was with Trilateralist Henry Kissinger at Kissinger Associates. Trilateralist Brent Scowcroft has been an unofficial advisor to Obama and was 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.

    According to the Trilateral Commissions’ website, the Commission was formed in 1973 by private citizens of Japan, Europe (European Union countries), and North America (United States and Canada) to foster closer cooperation among these core democratic industrialized areas of the world with shared leadership responsibilities in the wider international system. The website says, “The membership of the Trilateral Commission is composed of about 400 distinguished leaders in business, media, academia, public service (excluding current national Cabinet Ministers), labor unions, and other non-governmental organizations from the three regions. The regional chairmen, deputy chairmen, and directors constitute the leadership of the Trilateral Commission, along with an Executive Committee including about 40 other members.”

    Since 1973, the Trilateral Commission has met regularly in plenary sessions to discuss policy position papers developed by its members. Policies are debated in order to achieve consensuses. Respective members return to their own countries to implement policies consistent with those consensuses. The original stated purpose of the Trilateral Commission was to create a “New International Economic Order.” Its current statement has morphed into fostering a “closer cooperation among these core democratic industrialized areas of the world with shared leadership responsibilities in the wider international system.”

    Since the Carter administration, Trilateralists have held these very influential positions: Six of the last eight World Bank Presidents; Presidents and Vice-Presidents of the United States (except for Obama and Biden); over half of all US Secretaries of State; and three quarters of the Secretaries of Defense.

    Two strong convictions guide the Commission’s agenda for the 2009-2012 triennium. First, the Trilateral Commission is to remain as important as ever in maintaining wealthy countries’ shared leadership in the wider international system. Second, the Commission will “widen its framework to reflect broader changes in the world.” Thus, the Japan Group has become a Pacific Asian Group, which includes Chinese and Indian members, and Mexican members have been added to the North American Group. The European Group continues to widen in line with the enlargement of the EU.

    Update by Patrick Wood

    The concept of “undue influence” comes to mind when considering the number of Trilateral Commission members in the Obama administration. They control the areas of our most urgent national needs: financial and economic crisis, national security, and foreign policy.

    The conflict of interest is glaring. With 75 percent of the Trilateral membership consisting of non-US individuals, what influence does this super-majority have on the remaining 25 percent?

    For example, when Chrysler entered bankruptcy under the oversight and control of the Obama administration, it was quickly decided that the Italian carmaker Fiat would take over Chrysler. The deal’s point man, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, is a member of the Trilateral Commission. Would you be surprised to know that the chairman of Fiat, Luca di Montezemolo, is also a fellow member?

    Congress should have halted this deal the moment it was suggested.

    Many European members of the Trilateral Commission are also top leaders of the European Union. What political and economic sway do they have through their American counterparts?

    If asked, the vast majority of Americans would say that America’s business is its own, and should be closed to foreign meddlers with non-American agendas.

    But, the vast majority of Americans have no idea who or what the Trilateral Commission is, much less the power they have usurped since 1976, when Jimmy Carter became the first Trilateral member to be elected president (Project Censored Story #1, 1976).

    In light of today’s unprecedented financial crisis, they would be abhorred if they actually read Zbigniew Brzezinski’s (co-founder of the Commission with David Rockefeller) statement from his 1971 book, Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era, which states that, “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.”

    Yet, this is exactly what is happening. The global banks and corporations are running circles around the nation state, including the United States. They have no regard for due process, Congress, or the will of the people.

    Why have the American people been kept in the dark about a subject so great that it shakes our country to its very core?

    The answer is simple: The top leadership of the media is also saturated with members of the Trilateral Commission who are able to selectively suppress the stories that are covered. They include:

    • David Bradley, Chairman, Atlantic Media Company
    • Karen Elliot House, former Senior Vice President, Dow Jones & Company, and Publisher, the Wall Street Journal
    • Richard Plepler, Co-president, HBO
    • Charlie Rose, PBS
    • Fareed Zakaria, Editor, Newsweek
    • Mortimer Zuckerman, Chairman, US News & World Reports

    There are many other top-level media connections due to corporate directorships and stock ownership.

    For more information, this writer’s original 1978 book, Trilaterals Over Washington, is available in electronic form at no charge at This site also has many papers analyzing various aspects of the Trilateral Commission’s hegemony in the United States and elsewhere, since it’s founding in 1973.

  11. Nicely composed and well written presentation,Thanks~

    At the time when the TriLateral Commission was formed there was a lot of perceived danger to the civil structure. It was widely felt among personages that lead society that prophylactic policy measures needed to be instituted to, hopefully, avert disaster. It was known then that it would curb freedoms and reform or replace a lot of structures, both societal and cultural. But this looked like a better result than many another. So that is what happened and this is what we got. It’s better than war or violent social upheaval, and it is impossible to say what would have happened had this set of policies not be pursued. It is hard to imagine that I would like to live here in 2050, or even 2020, and am not that thrilled with things even now, but it is what it is and beyond that there really isn’t much to say. The old ways are passing out of living memory, as they have been doing for a hell of a long time.

    1. There will never be aversion of disaster as long as the elites are bent on being top dog in this world. This whole agenda is Satanic because anyone who wants to rule.. as dictators do.. will never treat their fellow humans with dignity and respect. That’s why it can’t and won’t ever work out…..Utopia is a fantasy of the elitists so they can be in charge while living in their ivory towers far removed from the servile masses. Yes, they salivate at the idea of total control of those masses, without having to be ‘contaminated’ by them. Sadly the masses have a lot of catching up to do in order to become educated about the NWO…..I just hope it’s not too late.

  12. I note two key terms:

    Citizen. Legal terminology. It has to do with jurisdiction. Note how all of this only applies to them (citizens).

    Nation state. Note how they are disappearing, and why they must for this to work.

    Perhaps the only answer is to have a majority walk away from their system, trading their citizenship in for State National status (consent of the governed). Pacinlaw just might contain a viable solution. Don’t know for sure. Just punting in the dark, I guess. I suggest looking into it, though.

  13. Elias: It’s a well written article, and a good, thorough review of the many clever new justifications for, and pathways to, tyranny, that Technocracy poses. But the lesson I get from it, is the same I get from any of the many schemes being floated and touted as “necessary, and inevitable.” They all argue, in devious ways, that we (“ordinaries”) must yield whatever scraps of our rights still remain available to us, for reasons that we’re too unenlightened to understand, and if it all works out badly for us, too bad(!), because whatever they are proposing is both necessary and inevitable.

    “Don’t bother to examine a folly — ask yourself only what it accomplishes.” — Ayn Rand

    Cut to the chase: Save one, all “modern” governmental/economic/social schemes (e.g., communism, fascism, Technocracy) are merely variants of the basic attempt of the con-man (or group of them) to come up with words, phrases, and concepts that a majority will accept as valid reasons to meekly allow themselves to be robbed, enslaved — and exterminated, should they rebel. That one exception is the now bastardized, truncated, and denounced, concept of human liberty enunciated in the Declaration of Independence, and imperfectly implemented by the Constitution for the united States of America, currently being buried, kicking and screaming (but not too loudly — “it wouldn’t be tasteful.”)

    UE: Where would you go? Do you think they’ll honor the “King’s X” of expatriation, after they consolidate their control of the world? It would be easier to just throw a token shovelful of dirt on the grave, and slink away — just as it would be easier to let the lion eat you. Or, you could wait for the slavers to arrive with loaded weapons, and die bravely. Changing the game would mean attempting to persuade those who have already surrendered, or been “converted,” because the real battleground for anything but getting flattened is the mind. But if the majority of your nation choose to be slaves, you’re going to need another planet. Speak up while you still can!

    1. I know for a fact that they will honor expatriation, if done properly. They already do. I don’t want to appear as though I respect them but they do have a working system of honor. The problem is that they are not required to respect those who do not have the knowledge to play their game.

      To be honest, though, L Tecolote, if the majority (consent) is endangered, then they will attempt to do what that which they know, and that would be lie, cheat, steal, murder and call it peace. In the meantime, however, I see a transition of ideas and a transfer of personnel based on ideology. It will be bad, but it already is. Don’t be such a fuddy-duddy! Heh heh heh…

      There are those out here already meeting them eye-to-eye, on equal ground. Of course, you never hear about them, it would no be in the best interest of the high stakes players to allow that. Not right now, anyway. Some elites are getting some strange ideas of freedom for all (those bastards). There just aren’t a whole lot of them, for some unknown reason. Ask yourself why they haven’t got all of our guns yet. there must be a hidden piece to this puzzle somewhere out there, if you really think about it.

      I do speak, therefore I am.

  14. Excellent piece on how evil works among men; but this is nothing new, since the Garden of Eden.

    Now it is time for ACTION; we have approached Stewart Rhodes to join Oath Keepers in an alliance called FEAR The People — an action plan already underway. Step One: finish ratifying the original First Amendment, gathering dust for 226 years, so it will become the 28th Amendment, giving us 6,400 members of the U.S. House of Representatives, as the Founding Fathers designed representation apportionment to be!

    Second step: fill as many of those 6,400 House seats and 33 open Senate seats with real constitutionalists and citizen-statesmen.

    Third step: Have those new citizen statesmen force through our Bring Congress Home Act, removing Congress from Washington DC forever!

    The TEA Party has never had an opportunity like this. We The People — including Oath Keepers — can make history before the end of 2018, forever breaking up Washington DC and ending the rule of corporations and their D.C. lobbyists! See the crowdfunding site here, and tell Stewart Rhodes to respond to my invitation…let’s ROLL!

  15. I am really beginning to hate the UN and NWO. I do not need these vile criminals or the illuminati to tell me how to live. I support oath keepers. The real GOD Jehovah Yahweh bless them!
