David Rockefeller (June 12, 1915 – March 20, 2017) was a banker, former head of Chase Bank, and a leader of the liberal establishment faction of the Republican Party.


Born in New York City on June 12, 1915, Rockefeller was the eldest son of billionaire John D. Rockefeller Jr. (1874–1960) and also was the brother of former Vice President Nelson Rockefeller.

On March 20, 2017, Rockefeller died at his home at an age of 101.[1]

Business and political influence

Rockefeller helped to found the globalist Trilateral Commission, an elitist group of political and business members from North America, Asia, and Europe. He was an advocate of a one-world government. Rockefeller had attended the Bilderberg conferences several times, which his first meeting was in 1954 at Hotel de Bilderberg, Netherlands. Rockefeller was also involved with other globalist organizations, including the Council on Foreign Relations.

In the late 1940s, Rockefeller joined the Chase National Bank in Manhattan, New York City a successful global banking company.

The liberal faction of the Republican Party in the 1960s and 70s was called the "Rockefeller Republicans", which was named after Rockefeller's brother Nelson.[2] Though slightly more liberal, the Rockefeller Republicans resemble the globalist and establishment factions of the GOP today.


  • "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's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."[3]
