The Real Story of David Rockefeller That the Media Isn’t Telling


While celebrated for his philanthropy in media reports, the last surviving grandson of America’s first billionaire died yesterday, leaving behind a dark legacy indicative of how American nobility often shape policy from behind the scenes.

(MPN) No one person encapsulates the enduring legacy of the “robber barons” of the Industrial Age quite like David Rockefeller. Rockefeller, who died yesterday at the age of 101, was the last surviving grandson of John D. Rockefeller, the oil tycoon who became America’s first billionaire and the patriarch of what would become one of the most powerful and wealthiest families in American history. David Rockefeller, an undeniable product of American nobility, lived his entire life in the echelons of U.S. society, becoming symbolic of the elite who often direct public policy to a much greater extent than many realize, albeit often from the shadows.

Rockefeller made it clear that he preferred to operate out of public view despite his great influence in American – and international – politics. Due to his birthright, Rockefeller served as an advisor to every president since Eisenhower, but when offered powerful positions such as Federal Reserve chairman and Secretary of the Treasury – he declined, preferring “a private role.”

As evidenced by the numerous obituaries bemoaning the loss of the last of the Rockefeller’s grandsons, he was largely successful in hiding his most significant wrongdoings from public view, as evidenced by his characterization as a generous philanthropist and influential banker.

But as is often the case, Rockefeller’s true legacy is much more mired in controversy than major media outlets seem willing to admit. In addition to having the ear of every U.S. president for the better part of the last 70 or so years, Rockefeller – once again operating “behind the scenes” – was instrumental in shaping the more cringe-worthy aspects of U.S. policy during that time, as well as being a major force in establishing banking policies that led to debt crises in the developing world.

Rockefeller – as the head of Chase Manhattan Bank from 1969 to 1981 – worked with government and multinational corporations throughout the world to create a “global order” unequivocally dominated by the 1 percent, of which his family was a part. As the New York Times noted back in the 1970s, Rockefeller became embroiled in controversy when his constant trips overseas caused the bank to become less profitable, as he prioritized the bank’s influence on foreign politics over its actual business dealings.

During his time as Chase CEO, Rockefeller helped laid the foundation for repressive, racist and fascist regimes around the world, as well as architecture for global inequality. In addition, Rockefeller helped to bring the debt crisis of the 1980s into existence, in part by direct action through Chase Bank and also indirectly through his former employee-turned-Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker. Two years before the debt crisis erupted, Rockefeller, Volcker and other top bankers met at the International Monetary Conference in 1980s to argue for the establishment of a “safety net” for major banks – like Chase – that were embroiled in bad loans given largely to countries in the developing world.

After the crisis brought financial ruin to Latin America and other developing areas throughout the world, Rockefeller – along with other bankers – created austerity programs to “solve” the debt crisis during subsequent IMC meetings, provoking inequality that still persists to this day. However, thanks to the “safety net” conveniently established years prior, Chase avoided the economic consequences for its criminal actions.

In addition, Rockefeller supported the bloody and ruthless dictatorships of the Shah of Iran and Augusto Pinochet of Chile while also supporting Israeli apartheid. Rockefeller then went on to found the influential Trilateral Commission while also serving as a major force on the Council on Foreign Relations that he, along with his close friend Henry Kissinger, would come to dominate.

Both of these organizations have come under fire for using their powerful influence to bring about a “one-world government” ruled by a powerful, ultra-wealthy elite – an accusation to which David Rockefeller confirmed as true in his autobiography. Far from the generous philanthropist he is made to be, David Rockefeller deserves to be remembered for his true legacy – one of elitism, fascism and economic enslavement.

    Como Gelar A Cerveja Rápido

    Prestem atenção nessa orientação, pois eu testei ela num churrasco
    esse fim de semana, e também fiquei muito feliz! Aliás, um congratulação especial ao Guiga (
    @filhodopadeiro ) doo Tudo Sobre Facebook , que me passou ease conhecimento milenar!

    A mddida de qualquer um desses ingredientes dependerá da
    quantidade de cerveja que se pretennde gelar. Maas usualmente,
    seria umm saco de gelo, um litro de chuva, um litro de álcool
    e meio quilo de sal. Após colocar todos oos ingredientes nuum recipiente, basta acopmodar as
    latas/garrafas de cerveja e esperar por retornamento de 3 minutos.
    Você poderá proporcionalizar essas medidas conforme
    a quantidade de cerveja quee pretende gelar.

    sal se dissolve facilmente na chuva e reduz seu pnto de frigoríficação.
    Pura, a chuva congela a cerca de 0 ºC.
    Já a chuva com sal precisa de uma temperatura menor, que é possível
    que chegar a dezenas de graus abaixo dde zero. Enquanto ssal é posto noo gelo, parte dos cubps
    derretem, roubando” caor durante a troca de
    estado físico e também esfriando a mistura como um todo.
    Aliás, sal dissolvido provoca uma reação endotérmica, isto
    é, reduz mas a temperatuyra da mistura. álcool
    possui um papel semelhante: derete gelo roubando” calor e também
    diminui ainda mas marca de refrigeração.
    É usado porque quando a temperatura ficar sob -9 ºC, sal perde um pouco do efeito,
    maas álcool não.

    De olho noo relógio: alumínio é bom condutor de
    calor, e também 3 minutos são suficientes
    a fim de que as latunhas mergulhadas encontrem equilíbrio térmico.
    Como a temperatura resta sob zero, depois pequebo número de minutos,
    a grito vai estar tão gelada que não vai conceder para senmtir palato e também periga gelificar.
    Deixse papel toalha chupar bem a água, e também emm
    seguida, ligeiro as cervejas para frigorífico. A água no papel vai gelar rapidamente,
    formando uma classe de gelo que esfria a poção.

    Pista: tomem cuidado, porque dependdndo do reezer a cerveja pode gelar numa rapidez absurda, ddeixando ssua cerveja congelada, qque não
    é lítico. Minii Refrigerados USB Mas um gadget alcoólico para você não
    perder a chance de tomar uma cervejinha geladésima no recxreio
    do seu trabalho. Há nem tinha visto… a do nitrogênio
    é a mwlhor (moleza de encontrar) hahahahahha supimpa. adicionei aos
    favoritos…. E também que pergunta acolá em cima do Leandro.
    Não funciona ccom otras bebidas não, só cerveja que gela, as
    outras se colocar esquenta! http://cervejeiromestre.com.br/cerveja/
