connects the dots between the Bilderberg Group, world events, notable politicians andcorporate tycoons and the two other secretive monsters of the ruling elite, the Councilon Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Trilateral Commission (TC). The project lastedfifteen years and was motivated by Estulin's curiosity about how it is that themainstream media has never covered in depth the meetings of the Bilderberg Groupwhose combined wealth exceeds the combined wealth of all U.S. citizens.What Estulin's book makes clear is that the group, along with the CFR and TC, has become a shadow government whose top priority is to erase the sovereignty of allnation-states and supplant them with global corporate control of their economies under the surveillance of "an electronic global police state." (xv)The author emphasizes that not all members of the group are "bad" people, and heimplies that membership is structured somewhat like concentric circles in a targetscheme with in inner core and various levels of relationship between that core and theouter circles of membership. Almost every famous player in politics and finance in theworld is a member of one of the three organizations mentioned above, and their political affiliations range from liberal to conservative, for example, George W. Bush,George Soros, Gerald Ford, George McGovern, Jimmy Carter. Of this private club,Estulin says:
This parallel world remains unseen in the daily struggles of most of humanity, but,believe me, it is there: a cesspool of duplicity and lies and double-speak and innuendoand blackmail and bribery. It is a surreal world of double and triple agents, of changing loyalties, of professional psychotic assassins, brainwashed black ops agents, soldiers of fortune and mercenaries, whose primary sources of income are the dirtiest and most despicable government-run subversive missions-the kind that can never beexposed.(15)
This world, according to Estulin, is so perverse and evil that "it has left an indeliblemark on my soul". (16) How not? Because the Bilderberg Group and its two other triplets, the CFR and the TC have set about to loot the entire planet. Their membersrun the central banks of the world and are poised to control discount rates, money-supply, interest rates, gold prices, and which countries receive or do not receive loans.
