The True Legacy of David Rockefeller

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Via MintPressNews.com,

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

No one person encapsulates the enduring legacy of the “robber barons” of the Industrial Age quite like David Rockefeller. Rockefeller, who died this week 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 publications 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 lay 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.

      Looking at our country today, and the dire straits that it is in. I must agree with the writer of this article. Not much good appears to have been given to the world, or the United States for that matter by David Rockefeller. His legacy is not what it could have been with the tremendous wealth he had. He could have helped the poor countries, and not destroyed our middle class here in the United States Of America.

        The death of this treasonous vermin is worth celebrating. Someone needs to manufacture toilet paper with his, George Soros and bill gates of hell (your friendly neighborhood genocide general) image for inspiring a good wipe. And remember… Courtesy flush first.

        • diane

          yes, let us flush daily all the way to Waahington DC. Then unplug the swamp.

          ” Someone needs to manufacture toilet paper…”

          Friend Equalizer, that someone’s need can indeed be your command. Now, I don’t work for this fine online printing firm and have not done any business with them, BUT:

          printedtp.com/collections/all/products/your-custom-roll-of-toilet-paper

          sure looks like the Place to BE for the purpose. (Thank’ee, DuckDuckGo.) Per their site, forty bux for a minimum two-roll order drops off to a mere hundred for ten – a fine price break by any standard imvho.

          Wish I had the cash… Downloaded the pic of dirty ol’ Unca’ Davey Himself from the article, though, just in case something changes tomorrow. (After all, HE is DEAD now and *I* am NOT. Life is GOOD!) :wink:

          Gee… Might need to borry a c-note from the Merry Banksterz at PayPal to git this done if no other means appears, anyway… ;) Gee. Banksters financing such a thing on request sure is a sweet additional irony, ain’t it? And to think that all I’se gots to do is pay ‘em back in less than six months and THEY make NO money off of MY borry… :grin:

          SWEET. Especially for so long as that PP promo lasts. And that is all. 0{;-)o[
