JD Rockefeller was America's first billionaire, and by 1900 his oil monopolies controlled nearly two-thirds of the world's oil supply. Most Americans remember him for his self-serving philanthropic exploits, but know nothing of his predatory control behind the wheels of government. He loved to destroy competition and manipulate the cogs of finance. His power so concerned the U.S. Supreme Court that in 1911 they demanded he break up his oil monopoly by saying, "Seven men and a corporate machine have conspired against their fellow citizens. For the safety of the Republic we now decree that this dangerous conspiracy must be ended."
But Rockefeller could give a rat's ass about our American liberty and prosperity. Rockefeller and his banking cronies, including JP Morgan, devised the blood sucking money monster we call the Federal Reserve System. One of the major private shareholders in this so called Federal agency was none other than Rockefeller's New York Bank. We know this bank as JPMorgan Chase and the Rockefeller family is currently one of, if not the largest beneficiary of the Federal Reserve scam. Your tax dollars continue to make Rockefeller richer every day.
Until recently, the names of those who owned the Federal Reserve were one of the best kept secrets of international finance, but we now know the truth. The ruthless Rockefeller legacy continues today with David Rockefeller, known behind the political scenes as one of the most powerful men in the world.
"Competition is a sin."
"I would rather earn 1% off 100 people's efforts than 100% off my own efforts."
Trivia: The Rockefellers wanted to change their ruthless public image, and with the aid of a publicist named Ivy Lee, the Rockefeller Foundation was created. Newspapers were encouraged to cover Rockefeller's golf outings instead of his business practices.
