Created in 1973, the Trilateral Commission has exerted a dramatic effect on the entire Third World. Its effect on the Middle East is due to the vast amounts of oil in the region and the West's need to have a cheap source of energy for industry and transportation.
The need to dominate the entire Third World, not the least of which includes the Middle East, is caused by the ever increasing quest for profit. Capitalism creates the necessity to earn more and more profit necessitating sacrifices in wages and benefits to those who are not owners.
To the extent that this organization needs to gain huge profits for those who share in their wealth, namely the stockholders, the Trilateral Commission is compelled or forced to control the government. Government, therefore, becomes subservient to the corporations so corporations will continue to make ever larger and larger profits.
Thus, the multinational corporations provide the means by which to dominate the federal government, controlling the Congress and parliaments of the following areas of the world: United States, Japan, and Western Europe.
Since the original research was completed, Japan and Western Europe have tended to pull away from the United States for various reasons which should be examined in another article. The United States, however, is still embraced in this phenomenon which is now hurting the poor and the middle class in the United States.
There was an economic crises in the early 1970s which precipitated the formation of this commission. The organization of OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) was basically caused because the West, or as some who are wiser than many say North, as the northern countries dominate over the southern hemisphere, decreased the price of oil twice within one year. There were other factors also, such as the Soviet Union's increased military capacity and Cuba's support for developing countries. The developments in the oil rich nations enabled them to directly invest heavily in foreign lands thereby threatening a significant loss of ownership control by the First World community.
All these circumstances caused the formation of the Trilateral Commission, a relatively secret organization composed of elites. Headed by David Rockefeller, who was considered at that time to be "the most widely recognized leader of transnational enterpÑises" according to Kowalewski and Leitko, the Trilateral Commission was formed to achieve cooperation in government policy making.
David Rockefeller claimed that the Trilateral Commission was begun by a group of concerned citizens interested in fostering greater understanding and cooperation among international allies in the present day international political climate. This statement is vague at its best and dishonest at worst.

The official version of the colonel's death just doesn't add up. So his brother is left asking a number of questions: What happened? Is it possible that elements of every major department of government could have been involved in either incompetence or intentional malfeasance, including a coordinated coverup? And if the latter is the case, what could have been the motive?

On the morning of January 22, 1991, neurologist Dr. David Sabow received a telephone call while he was at work in his office. The call was one that would change his life forever, and change his outlook on the integrity of parts of this country's military and political systems. It was from a Marine Corps chaplain, informing him that his older brother, Colonel James E. Sabow, had just committed suicide. At first, Dr. Sabow could not process the information. His thoughts were continually interrupted by snapshots of his brother Jimmy's life. And there was also this: David knew his brother so very well, and suicide was completely out of character for the man. Jimmy Sabow was a well-respected, highly intelligent, and extremely talented Marine officer, a man who had the ability to work as hard as he played and who demonstrated a strong devotion to his family. David recalls, "He was, without exaggeration, one of the best balanced individuals I've met in my life. So, I was immediately taken aback by the designation of suicide, simply because I knew my brother inside and out."
As it turned out, there were logical holes in the official account of Colonel Sabow's so-called suicide. These, combined with the discrepancy between what Dr. Sabow knew his brother to be and the idea of the man committing suicide, led Dr. Sabow into an investigation of his brother's death. He knew in his heart he could do no less.
Colonel Sabow's "suicide" and its aftermath have turned up far-ranging ramifications. As this special in-depth investigation will show, an unreported secret network of CIA agents was involved in illicit drug traffic from Mena, Arkansas, and dozens of other small airports around the country, the illegal sale of C-130 aircraft from the Forest Service, and the untimely deaths of investigative reporters and pilots. These agents were also involved with one of the largest drug trafficking operations coming into the country and illegal arms going out of the country.

Other Casualties of the Sabow Affair
The following additional individuals connected to the Sabow affair have met with strange misfortunes. Evidently, they knew too much.
Randy Robinson, the MP who witnessed evidence tampering at the death scene, was arrested two months after the murder, and charged with rape. The charge was then changed to the lesser one of adultery, for which he has served a six-month sentence. Captain Verducci, who acted in Robinson's defense, felt that the whole affair was bizarre, because the alleged victims did not file a complaint and refused to testify in court.
Archibald Scott, a highly decorated colonel who heard Colonel Sabow exclaim to Underwood that "Quitters never win and winners never quit," was accused of impersonating an officer. Scott took the case to court, and the decision has been reversed in his favor.
Captain Leslie Williams worked for Colonel Sabow and thought highly of him. She openly protested derogatory remarks against him. Despite a highly rated performance and recommendations for promotion by Colonel Sabow, Williams was "passed over" by the military and had to "get out."
Provost Marshall Goodrow and deputy, Forquer, were the first on the scene when Sabow died. Both were given new assignments in the summer of 1991. One was sent to Okinawa and the other to Twenty-Nine Palms. They were "short-termed."
Jack Chisom, the co-owner of T&G Aviation, who supplied C-130 and DC-7 operations in the Persian Gulf, was found dead in the Arizona desert as the result of a hit-and-run accident.
"Kevin," a marine who retired in the summer of 1994, was at the home of some friends when ®MDBR¯Eye-to-Eye With Connie Chung®MDNM¯ appeared on television. The program contained a segment on the death of Colonel Sabow and included a reference to large quantities of drugs being delivered to military bases, and an interview with a pilot who was involved in these flights. The group of people watching the program were astounded. "Kevin" assured them that everything they saw was true. He himself had been ordered to load vast quantities of drugs onto airplanes with the idea that drugs would be used for sting operations. He was not supposed to discuss the matter with anyone. Later, David Sabow learned of him and tried to reach "Kevin" for an interview. Five days later, a secret source told him "Kevin's" place of work and his unlisted phone number, but "Kevin" was dead. He was found hanging from the rafters of his parents' barn.
Tom Wade was a computer specialist who accessed confidential records for the Inspector General during his bogus investigation in January 1991. He found that the MWR files had been purged, including contracts with proprietary airlines, which are suspected of being involved in illegal C-130 acquisitions and illicit drug traffic. Wade's brutal death remains a mystery. He was shot in the head early on Christmas Day, 1994, as he was returning from Midnight Mass. As Wade's colleague at El Toro, computer installation chief Felix Segovia, explains, Wade was a single parent living in an apartment complex. "He had a small daughter. He was going home Christmas Eve from services. He was on his way home to pick up some gifts to take back to the church...to give out to the kids, and he was accosted by a couple of individuals in the parking lot of his complex, and shot in the back of the head, execution-style. Nothing was taken from his car. His daughter was left in the car crying. And no one saw anything. And until 6 in the morning when finally someone heard his daughter crying, it was never reported to the police."
Sergeant Felix Segovia is awaiting court-martial. He was a close friend of Tom Wade's, and had filed a "wholesale theft of computer equipment" report after having found that hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of computers, hardware, and software were missing from the El Toro base.
Colonel Jerry Agenbroad was found hanged in the BOQ in El Toro, on Feb. 24, 1994, five days after a 60 Minutes segment on illegal acquisitions and use of C-130s. He was in charge of MWR and at one time had been the head of the Air Museum at El Toro.

Today is International Women's Day, which the world began observing about a century ago. In many parts of the world, workplace discrimination has become an artifact of the past. Women have risen to leadership positions that just decades ago seemed out of reach.
Yet widespread violence against women endures. From Liberia and the Congo to Burma and Bhutan, pervasive and severe violence against women is the norm.
Some of the survivors live in our community. At our healing centers in St. Paul and Minneapolis, the Center for Victims of Torture provides treatment to victims of state-sponsored torture. We treat many women who have survived torture and escaped their perpetrators, but still struggle with the effects.
I work with an interpreter named Timka. From Banja Luka in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Timka herself is a refugee. Many of her friends and family members were devastated by the war. As she translates from Bosnian and Serbo-Croatian to English, Timka has watched many survivors fill with pride that they can begin to accomplish tasks, even small ones, on their own. When a client is comfortable making jokes again, it makes her feel good: "There are still people inside of these people. There's still a lot of joy."

By stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, Robin Hood gained legendary status as a selfless re-distributor of wealth.
But a new book claims that the outlaw of Sherwood Forest was in fact something of a loan shark, who operated a sophisticated lending scheme for those short of cash.
Robin Hood: The Unknown Templar points to several passages in an old English ballad that depict Robin loaning £400 to an impoverished knight.
The claim threatens to tarnish the image of a hero of English folklore who has been played on screen by actors including Errol Flynn and Kevin Costner, and who even has even has an airport, in Doncaster, named after him.
John Paul Davis, the author of the new book, cites scenes from A Gest of Robyn Hode, one of the earliest references to Robin Hood which dates from the 1500s, to support his theory.
In the ballad, Robin is approached by a knight who is indebted to an abbot and asked for a loan. Robin asks the knight if he has a guarantor, then agrees to give him the money, to be repaid over a year.
He asks Little John to count out £400 from his treasury.
Later in the ballad, which is written in Middle English, the knight returns to see Robin, and with his debts to the abbot cleared, offers to repay the loan together with an extra deposit charge.
Robin, however, declines the repayment, saying he has already received the money after stealing it from the abbot himself as a punishment for his greed, and tells the knight that it would be wrong to take the money twice.
Mr Davis also claims in the book that Robin was a member of the Knights Templar, a powerful Christian military organisations of the Middle Ages.
He argues that during the period, the sort of banking transaction described in the ballad was the preserve of the Templars alone, who were known to charge deposit fees as usury was officially forbidden by the Church.
Mr Davis, said: "The Templars were the most famous moneylenders in the world and £400 was a vast sum of money, which hints at an organisation behind the loan rather than the act of a lone outlaw.

A couple addicted to computer games let their real life baby starve to death while raising a virtual daughter online, cops said today.
The couple spent up to12 hours a day at internet cafes leaving their three-month-old daughter home alone at their apartment in Suwon, South Korea.
Cops say the couple had become obsessed with living online and neglected their real lives.
They raised an avatar baby through their profiles on a Second Life-style game called PRIUS, while their real daughter was given just one bottle of milk a day.
Dad Kim Yoo-chul, 41, and mum Choi Mi-sun, 25, called the emergency services when they returned from one online session and found their daughter dead.
They told police: "We found she had passed away when we woke up in the morning."
But cops became suspicious about how severely dehydrated the tot was.
A spokesman for the National Scientific Criminal and Investigation Laboratory, which carried out an autopsy on the girl, said: "She appears to have starved to death because she was not fed for such a long period of time."
