Globalist Overlord David Rockefeller Dies at Age 101
Former Chase Manhattan Chief Executive David Rockefeller has died at the age of 101.
Rockefeller died in his sleep at home in Pocantico Hills, New York, on Monday morning as a result of congestive heart failure, according to a family spokesperson Fraser P. Seitel.
The businessman, who had an estimated fortune of $3 billion, retired as head of Chase Manhattan in 1981 after a 35-year career.

David Rockefeller was a leading proponent of the global liberal world order.
In fact, he was quite open about this.
In his book, Memoirs, he wrote the following:
For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to 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 is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.
The phrasing here has always amused me. He first refers to the accusations against him as if they were unfounded, only to concede, later in the same sentence, that they are, in fact, correct.
Populists and isolationists ignore the tangible benefits that have resulted in our active international role during the past half-century. Not only was the very real threat posed by Soviet Communism overcome, but there have been fundamental improvements in societies around the world, particularly in the United States, as a result of global trade, improved communications, and the heightened interaction of people from different cultures.
These “fundamental improvements” are, as you would expect, hardly improvements in any meaningful sense.
For example, global trade has decimated American industry and the White working class One need only consider the opiate-riddled Rust Belt, or the fact that White, working class Americans – particularly males – are the only demographic in the developing world with increasing death rates, to understand that trading jobs for GDP growth isn’t always the best decision.
Furthermore, interaction of people from different cultures isn’t always a good thing – just ask one of the underage victims of Muslim sex gangs in Rotherham, or one of the girls that was sexually assaulted on New Year’s Eve in Cologne.
Make no mistake – if there are any benefits of globalization, they are secondary. Globalism has always been about consolidating power into the hands of the Rockefellers and friends.
And while David Rockefeller undoubtedly left behind a successor, one less globalist overlord is a good thing as far as I’m concerned.
