  • 1. The "Proud Internationalist"

    Most analysis of the role of David Rockefeller in the New World Order is usually ridiculed by smug commentators in the "responsible" press as the stuff of fantasy. For these oracles, descriptions of David Rockefeller as "one of the foremost partisans of world government under the UN" (Jasper), the "minence grise of international power politics" (Wilkes) and "one of the most high profile, and most obvious, New World Order manipulators on the planet" (Icke)1 are not to be taken seriously. Indeed, to contend that this globe-trotting billionaire ex-banker, philanthropist and founder of the Trilateral Commission could have any global designs and the political influence to realise them, is taken as a sign that one has fallen for the infantile ravings of the "black helicopter crowd." Perhaps, it is implied, only those afflicted by a peculiar mental malady could possibly believe or even contemplate such claims.

    Back in 1996, for example, high-rating US national radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh openly mocked these beliefs in his so-called "Kook Test":

    Question No. 5. Do you believe that David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger and other famous members of the New World Order provide daily instructions to agents of the FBI, CIA, BATF, and National Organization of Women?

    []

    Question No. 9. Do you believe that the feminist movement was the brainchild of David Rockefeller for the purpose of having men and women at war with each other on a daily basis so as to distract them from the real conspiracy of the CFR?

    []

    If you have answered even one of these questions "yes", then you are a kook and have passed the test.2

    David Rockefeller himself has often scoffed at such claims. In a letter to the New York Times in 1980, he took issue with the "nonsensical defamation" he claimed to have been subjected to over the years. "I never cease to be amazed by those few among us who spot a conspiracy under every rock, a cabal in every corner", Rockefeller wrote, lamenting that he was usually "singled out as the 'cabalist-in-chief'."3 Eighteen years later, Rockefeller's mirth remained intact. "It's so absurd I can't help but, to some extent, find it amusing", he told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in 1998, commenting on conspiracy theories about himself and the Trilateral Commission.4

    Yet curiously, David Rockefeller's key role in promoting global political and economic unity is not only explicitly recognised but is openly celebrated by the power-elite. According to one recent tribute, because of his "contributions to enterprise and humanity" David Rockefeller had become "one of the world's most respected citizens." The speaker, Thomas d'Aquino, President and CEO of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives, addressing an elite gathering in 2002, had no qualms praising Rockefeller's "impressible urge to promote international cooperation and understanding" and his "passions for the promotion of international cooperation"

    and "inter-American cooperation."5 Equally unrestrained was Harvard University President Neil Rudenstine, who praised David Rockefeller in a 1999 speech as an "informed, observant, experienced, modest, and generous citizen of the world, interested in the welfare of all."6

    At celebrations for the 25th anniversary of the Trilateral Commission's US group in 1998, a roster of adoring Establishment heavyweights repeatedly toasted the "sense of vision" (Georges Berthoin), "farsightedness and leadership" (Shijuro Ogata), "great munificence" (Conrad Black) and "sense of obligation" (Henry Kissinger) of their Honorary Chairman. The "first global history of mankind is about to start", claimed Berthoin, a former European Chairman of the Trilateral Commission, and it was all due to David Rockefeller, the "gentleman-pioneer of the trilateral world."7 Similarly, at a book signing for Rockefeller's autobiography, Memoirs, held in late 2002 at the United Nations headquarters in New York, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan hailed the plutocrat's contribution to world order:

    I think without internationalists like you, the international system we have been trying to build, the international system we have today, wouldn't be here. So, thank you very much, David.8

    Equally glowing accolades were delivered in November 2003 at the Synergos Institute's "University for a Night", also held in the UN's Ne
