The Trilateral Commission: excerpt 3

another Trilateral critic, now-retired Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz.), views the Commission as a Rockefeller family operation through and through - according to Goldwater: "the Trilateral organization created by David Rockefeller was a surrogate - the members selected by Rockefeller, its purposes defined by Rockefeller, its funding supplied by Rockefeller - David Rockefeller screened and selected every individual who was invited to participate" -- David Rockefeller and Brzezinski then began the process of selecting from among the "Trilateral" nations the several hundred elite power brokers who would be permitted to join in Trilateral policy making in the coming years.

one of the Commission's primary goals was to place a Trilateral influenced President in the White House in 1976, and to achieve that goal it was necessary to groom an appropriate candidate who would be willing to cooperate with Trilateral aims - Rockefeller and Brzezinski selected a handful of well-known liberal Democrats and a scattering of Republicans (primarily of the liberal-internationalist bent) to serve on the Commission - and in an effort to give regional balance to the Commission, Rockefeller invited the then-obscure one-term Democratic governor of Georgia, Jimmy Carter, to join the Commission - Rockefeller had longtime ties to the local Atlanta political and economic Establishment - in fact, much of Rockefeller's personal investment portfolio is in Atlanta real-estate (according to David Horowitz, co-author of "The Rockefeller's", Atlanta is Rockefeller Center South) - and Rockefeller himself had once even invited Carter to dine with him at the Chase Manhattan Bank several years before, as early as 1971, the year Carter began serving as Governor.
