The New American: David Rockefeller (shown), the last of his generation of the fabled banking dynasty synonymous with wealth and power, died at the family’s sprawling country estate in Pocantico Hills, New York, on Monday, March 20. He was 101. The grandson of Standard Oil co-founder John D. Rockefeller, he was the youngest of five brothers, and the one destined to leave the biggest mark on the world.
Typical of many obituaries, the one provided by the Associated Press described him as growing up “in a famous American family that taught its children that wealth brings great responsibility. Even as children, he and his siblings had to set aside portions of their allowances for charitable giving.” And, according to the AP account, “he embraced business and traveled and spoke widely as a champion of enlightened capitalism.”
What the AP obit fails to mention is that David Rockefeller’s definition of “enlightened capitalism” had nothing to do with traditional notions of free enterprise, market economics, and property rights, and everything to do with promoting global centralized government and bureaucratic/technocratic rule, a “new world order” overseen by an elite oligarchy, of which the Rockefellers would be primus inter pares — first among equals. more …
Opinion: There is so much to say about this man. Synonymous with George Soros, David Rockefeller was everything we have been writing against for the past 6 years. From chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), to the Trilateral Commission, Rockefeller wrote the check that purchased the land for the United Nations.
While Soros got the spotlight in recent years, Rockefeller’s checkbook was behind the scenes paving the way for the final dictator:
“It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.”
The good news is that Rockefeller was wrong. Had the 8 years of Barack Obama led to a Hillary Clinton presidency with her dream of a hemispheric common market with open borders and free trade, Rockefeller would have died a happy man.
Even if that dream was only temporarily stopped in its tracks by the election of Donald Trump, both he and Hillary were rejected. And that is good.
