Bombshell: David Gergen’s Elite Connections, His Attempt To Stop Trump

Yes, he works for CNN. He’s operated as “White House advisor” to four presidents: Ford, Nixon, Reagan, and Clinton. That should give you pause.


Because Washington insider David Gergen, currently a CNN political commentator, is also a member of the executive committee of the Trilateral Commission (TC) (see here, here, and here). The TC is one of the most powerful elite groups on the planet. Founded by David Rockefeller in 1973, the TC has been making domestic and foreign policy for America since the Jimmy Carter administration.

Before we get to the significance of Gergen’s TC ties, here is a sprinkling of critical statements about Donald Trump that Gergen made during the presidential race:

“Whatever chance Donald Trump still had of capturing the White House largely evaporated Sunday night in his second debate with Hillary Clinton.” (here)

“Donald Trump’s behavior on stage Thursday night and in the days that have followed strike many as unfathomable: How can anyone act so arrogantly and meanly in public life?” (here)

“[Donald Trump made the 2016 election a] ‘national joke’ [when he guested on The Dr. Oz Show to say he was in good health].” (here)

“[Trump delivered a] ‘slanderous speech’ [against Hillary Clinton, saying she should go to jail].” (here)

“Donald Trump is a walking example of someone who’s dismissive of women. Can you imagine what it’s like for him to think that he might be beaten by a woman? Serves him right.”

David Gergen never writes in depth about his own membership in the elite Rockefeller Trilateral Commission. The TC a) is a Globalist juggernaut, and b) Donald Trump’s attack on Globalism, its trade treaties, and its wholesale theft of US jobs, is in direct opposition to the Trilateral Commission’s aims.

A simple conflict-of-interest statement from Gergen would do. Something like this:

“Hi, I’m David Gergen, and I’m a member of an elite group determined to create a new international economic order. We favor the eventual eradication of national borders and the ascendance of transnational corporations and banks as the captains of the world. Therefore, I’m ideologically opposed to what that son of a bitch Donald Trump stands for.”

Then we’d know.

Here are two key Trilateral Commission quotes that reflect its global outlook:

“The nation state as a fundamental unit of man’s organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force: International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state.” — Zbigniew Brzezinski, co-founder of the Trilateral Commission.

Any doubt on the question of Trilateral Commission goals is answered by David Rockefeller himself, the founder of the TC, in his Memoirs (2003):

“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 Trans-Pacific Partnership Treaty (TPP), a Globalist nightmare, is now under consideration. Trump has vowed to stop it as soon as he takes office. David Gergen, of course, as a member of the Trilateral Commission, favors it.

Gergen: “The [Obama] administration’s increasing focus on Asia is a welcome move, but it too has gone less well than expected…the famous ‘pivot’ will depend upon completion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the most important trade agreement in decades. To its credit, the administration has aggressively pursued the deal but to little avail.”

Again, why doesn’t Gergen discuss his Trilateral membership in depth? Obviously, because it would fatally compromise his position as a journalist.

In order to avoid disseminating more fake news, CNN—already a Niagara of fake news—ought to introduce Gergen this way, every time he’s prepared to comment on Trump, the TPP, or Globalism:

“And now, remarks on the new president from our resident insider, David Gergen. David is a veteran member of the little-known but very powerful Trilateral Commission. He sits on its executive committee. The Trilateral Commission, founded by none other than David Rockefeller, favors eradication of national boundaries, a new international economic order, and Globalist trade treaties which of course give mega-corporations and banks control of the planet’s future. President-elect Trump opposes all this. David? What do you have for us today?”

“Well, when you put it that way…”

“Thank you, David. Talk to you again next week. We’ll be right back after the break.”

Going all the way back to 1978, here is the essence of an astonishing interview with two Trilateral Commission members about who was setting US domestic and foreign policy in Jimmy Carter’s administration.

The interview was conducted by reporter Jeremiah Novak. He was speaking with two American members of the Trilateral Commission:

NOVAK (reporter): Yes, but why doesn’t President Carter come out with it and tell the American people that [US] economic and political power is being coordinated by a [Trilateral Commission] committee made up of Henry Owen and six others? After all, if [US] policy is being made on a multinational level [by the Trilateral Commission], the people should know.

RICHARD COOPER [Trilateral Commission member]: President Carter and Secretary of State Vance have constantly alluded to this in their speeches.

KARL KAISER [Trilateral Commission member]: It just hasn’t become an issue.

Source: “Trilateralism: The Trilateral Commission and Elite Planning for World Management,” ed. by Holly Sklar, 1980. South End Press, Boston. Pages 192-3.

It didn’t become an issue because major media didn’t expose it, and neither did President Carter, contrary to what these two TC members claimed.

The very idea that Trump might not continue this massive covert op to deliver US government power into the hands of the TC and David Rockefeller…insider David Gergen and his TC cronies wouldn’t be happy about that at all. Not at all.

And CNN talks about “fake news.” They are Fake News Central.

They are complicit in maintaining the United States as a satellite of the Trilateral Commission.

You think this might be an overstatement of the TC’s power now?

In the run-up to his inauguration after the 2008 presidential election, Obama was tutored by the co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Patrick Wood, author of Trilaterals Over Washington, points out there are only 87 members of the Trilateral Commission who live in America. Obama appointed eleven of them (!) to posts in his administration.
