"Here is one optimist's reason for believing unity will prevail over disunity, integration over disintegration. In fact, I'll bet that within the next hundred years... nationhood will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. A phrase briefly fashionable in the mid-twentieth century - 'citizen of the world' - will have assumed real meaning by the end of the twenty-first century."

- Strobe Talbott
President of the Brookings Institution,
former Deputy Secretary of State,
Time Magazine, 7/20/92.


"I have never believed there is a secret United Nations plot to take over the U.S. ... But, for the first time in my life, I think the formation of some sort of world government is plausible.

"A 'world government' would involve much more than co-operation between nations. It would be an entity with state-like characteristics, backed by a body of laws. The European Union has already set up a continental government for 27 countries, which could be the model. The EU has a supreme court, a currency, thousands of pages of law, a large civil service, and the ability to deploy military force. So could the European model go global? There are...reasons for thinking it might."

-Gideon Rachman
Chief Foreign Affairs Commentator
Financial Times , 12/8/08.


"For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. 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's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."

- David Rockefeller
Former Chief Executive of Chase Manhattan Corporation and founder of the Trilateral Commission, an organization bringing together the elites of North America, Europe, and Asia,
Memoirs , p. 405, 2002.


A Conspiracy?

"The CFR is the American branch of a society which originated in England. Internationalist in viewpoint, the CFR, along with the Atlantic Union Movement and the Atlantic Council of the United States, believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established.

"In my view, the Trilateral Commission [created by David Rockefeller] in 1979 represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize, control, and consolidate the four centers of power - political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical.... What the Trilaterals truly intend is the creation of a worldwide economic power superior to the political government of the nation-states involved."

- Barry Goldwater
Former U.S. Senator
With No Apologies , pp. 128 and 284.


The European Union

"The ultimate purpose of the Soviet Union was to create a new historic entity, the Soviet people, all around the globe. The same is true in the EU today. They are trying to create a new people. They call this people 'Europeans,' whatever that means."

- Vladimir Bukovsky
Former Soviet dissident,
The Brussels Journal , 2/27/06.


"What is at stake in this election is the continuity of France as a free nation, our existence as a people. The French have been dispossessed of their patriotism. They are suffering in silence from not being allowed to love their country.... The divide is no longer between Left and Right, but between patriots and globalists."

- Marine Le Pen
Presidential candidate of the National Front party in the 2017 French elections,
quoted on Breitbart , 2/24/17.


"National governance in Hungary is under continuous pressure and attack ... the most important thing at stake is whether we will have ... a government that will serve the best interests of the Hungarian people or ... a government that will seek to serve foreign interests.... If we were to accept that Brussels ... should dictate to us, or that Hungarian or American billionaires should tell us how things should be in our country, then we would have no conflicts.... George Soros must not be underestimated: he is a powerful billionaire of enormous determination who, when it comes to his interests, respects neither God nor man. We want to protect Hungary, and so we must commit ourselves to this struggle."

- Victor Orban
Prime Minister of Hungary,
quoted on Breitbart , 4/16/17.


North American Union

"What we need to do now is forge a North American Community.... Instead of stopping North Americans on the borders, we ought to provide them with a secure, biometric Border Pass that would ease transit across the border like an E-Z pass permits our cars to speed through toll booths.... North American governments can learn from the EU's efforts to establish EU Educational and Research Centers in the United States. Centers for North American Studies in the United States, Canada, and Mexico would help people in all three countries to understand the problems and the potential of an integrated North America-and to think of themselves as North Americans.... In addition, the United States and Canada should begin to merge immigration and refugee policies."

-Dr. Robert Pastor
Vice President of International Affairs
American University, testimony
U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, 6/9/05.


Free Trade

"But, generally speaking, the protective system in these days is conservative while the free trade system works destructively. It breaks up old nationalities and carries antagonism of proletariat and bourgeois to the uttermost point. In a word, the Free Trade system hastens the Social Revolution. In this revolutionary sense alone, gentlemen, I am in favor of Free Trade."

-Karl Marx
Premier theoretician of Communism
speech to the Democratic Assembly of Brussels, 1/9/1848.
