Err,... Duh! Rockefeller isn't exactly the most un-biased source when it comes to determine if Rockefeller has an agenda or not. Of course he's gonna deny the whole thing, he still got a brain, you know.

You should probably check out that second link in my signature.
edit on 17-4-2013 by swan001 because: (no reason given)


And everything you have said shows YOUR bias. I have given you facts, all documented. I have given you Rockefeller in his own words, refuting the very quote you say makes him some horrible monster out to control the world.

And yet you choose to believe a myth that has NO REAL DOCUMENTED OR SOLID PROOF. And as is your right....you may continue to buy into your own delusion. C'est la vie....

Truth be told, the idea that people living in a multi-multi-million-dollar mansion cant afford to eat is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard. Kind of like the guy who drives a $50k car but cant feed his kids.



I would tend to agree....but pride can be a funny thing.

And everything you said shows that you believe everything you see in the media - although these media are members of CFR, along with Rockefeller. Your documents (which I will still consider, don't get me wrong) came from newspaper whose directors are sitting in the CFR along with Rockefeller. Rockefeller's own words will OBVIOUSLY be biased by himself. Here is the list of all members of the CFR (source: en.wikipedia.org...):

Actually I've had that happen. Read my name backwards CIA it's Walus now go and Wiki Frank Walus. That is my (Immediate) Grandfather on my dads side. I know that pain all to well. And it's not even possible for my grandfather to accomplish that which he was tried for. He would only be a young boy. Then again this is just one event. The families your talking about have a laundry list of details that goes pretty deep. I do read a lot of book containing some interesting informaiton. Yes a lot of it is filth and garbage and some I don't believe because of how far fetched it is. But then again that laundry list of detailed reports and accounts of these people is hard to discredit. I meant no disrespect with my original post I know it sounded bad =/ my apologies.

But you also cannot ignore:


From the beginning, The New School maintained close ties to Europe. Its founders had, in part, modeled the school after the Volkshochschulen for adults established in Germany. Then during the 1920s, Alvin Johnson, The New School’s director, became co-editor of the Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences. While working on this massive undertaking, Johnson collaborated regularly with colleagues in Germany and elsewhere in Europe. It was they who made him aware of the danger the Nazi movement presented to democracy and the civilized world before many in the United States had grasped the seriousness of the situation. In 1933, when Hitler came to power and began to purge Jews and politically hostile elements from German universities, Johnson responded. With the financial support of philanthropist Hiram Halle and the Rockefeller Foundation, he obtained funding to provide a haven in the United States for scholars whose careers (and lives) were threatened by the Nazis.

Yeah, but isn't obvious that's what his New School friends are gonna say that to avoid justice? Rockefeller (and his clan) other option would be to admit the whole thing and get a sentence as nazi supporters. OF COURSE they are going to say they were "opposed" to nazism after nazis got rounded up. As I said, they still got brains. You seem to assume these guys won't adapt with recent events.

It's not that I blame those who have had a lot of money and so power not only in a material sense by creating companies/jobs but also because those with money are often considered role models, they are succesful so everyone should follow them or become like them. It's impossible to blame anyone in particular for the current state of the world, the only argument I can think of is how it is a bad thing for people to keep money rather than spending it in case of wealthy families. It should be an obligation for the rich to spend as much they can either on services or material longlasting goods because of the banking system altogether.

I don't believe the rich families are wise rather cunning. If they were wise, they would have bought an island by now and settled for less luxury but more positivity from people who they would support in a town they could have built with their money. People living there could have gotten a good life with good education, a roof over their heads and food. Life would be very different there. They could also have gotten a lot of loyal spiritual supporters if they had such a village with a monastery. I don't know any of the families personally but I'm sure there have been contacts with spiritual seekers who would offer services in exchange for money.

If they had done something like that, I'm sure the afterlife would have less troubled souls who can't get out of the money system. In the afterlife I believe money doesn't exist, it's information mostly or just being kind to one another. So even if those families have had a lot of power in society which would be unequally shared between it's members in the next life I doubt they will have the same, besides possibly a lot of souls who would be against them also. That is the only price I think those families will have to pay for the next few centuries, being scorned by other souls for their contribution to the bigger mess.

The whole thing is silly.. That's kind of like when lemon face whats his name, that guy who looks like he is always sucking on a lemon...Donal Trump I believe, once I heard him or one of his clan say on TV, something along the lines of the he has lived in poverty and was poor because he has been through bankruptcy a few time...Well if you consider being poor and poverty as living in a hundred thousand $$$ a night rooms at the top of one of them giant tombstones skyscrapers hotels or whatever there called, while your supposedly broke and poor then your definition of poor and everybody else is a bit off.

In which case just shows how out of touch with there fellow men all of them really are, kind of George Bush in one of his press conferences speeches was going on how great it is to live in a country were you can work two jobs, when a lady said that she had to work two jobs just to support herself, and on and on he went like clockwork when they were not even on the same page at all. Like I said out of touch, not even in the same stratosphere. But then again, well then its all a matter of how you look at it. Or in this case and the above cases its all just a matter of how you don't look at it at all.

But people make to much about these Rothschilds, or the others, they are human after all, made of meet and they do bleed and die when you prick them just like everybody else. In all they do not even rule the world, they are merely the accumulation and congestion of the centrifugal natures and mind frames of there fellow men ie as above and so bellow. And make no mistake if you were to get rid of them all and set another in there place the same things will happen with pretty much the same frequency. Humans just need idols as they were designed that way, and really it does not matter who or what that or those idols are, as can bee seen by... Well pretty much everything, when was the last time you seen some group of people worship some idiotic and silly thing? The answer is. All the dam time, humanity has adhered to silly stupid, retarded or just plain not good for them rules, regulations, or rulers who they set above them. It merely fills a vacuum in that space which they were designed to fill and conditioned to fill.

Basically you take any other guy walking the street and you place him or her or them in that same position and things will not change by much if at all. Altruism is not generally in the nature of the human animal, Opportunism supersedes altruism at every turn and most if not all of history is proof of that. I am not even going to ask who the Astors are, I'll wait till it comes out on DVD or on HBO or they make a movie about it...

The Astors as in the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

You know, one of those tombstone buildings in New York City.

It has a pretty nice bar.

Srry I never heard of it. And those building all look the same to me, but they must have a brochure or something so I am sure it is quite lovely.

Very. 1930's Art Deco.

Even if you never heard of it you can thank them next time you stay at a hotel, they invented room service.

And everything you said shows that you believe everything you see in the media - although these media are members of CFR, along with Rockefeller. Your documents (which I will still consider, don't get me wrong) came from newspaper whose directors are sitting in the CFR along with Rockefeller. Rockefeller's own words will OBVIOUSLY be biased by himself. Here is the list of all members of the CFR (source: en.wikipedia.org...):



It has nothing to do with believing "media." Most of what I posted has nothing to do with the media.

As far as the people & companies you posted on the CFR, so what??? Take a wild guess at how many people those companies employ COLLECTIVELY? Yes...those companies drive ECONOMY. Every major corporation must have people to run them. If you, as a company executive, aren't looking out for the best interest of your shareholders....well....you aren't a very good executive, then, are you? Do you even know what the purpose of the CFR is? It's meant to be a way for businesses, academia, and government to come together....from all over the world....to talk about cooperation, solving global problems, etc.

You are only suspicious of it because

1. some conspiracy theorist played upon your class envy and made you believe anyone tied to the CFR wants to make you a slave of some sort.

2. because you aren't personally "included"

There are almost 4700 members in the CFR. Do you *honestly* believe that every one of those individuals is bent on destroying or conquering the world and making everyone slaves?

Sure they did, it was right around the time they invented rooms right? Also if your interested, have you heard that little line about how the dinosaurs were wiped out by a meteor. Well that is a utterly total and complete lie, a meteor did not kill the dinosaurs...I did.


You know how I know all of this, its because I stayed at Holiday Inn Express Hotel once.

Yeah, but isn't obvious that's what his New School friends are gonna say that to avoid justice? Rockefeller (and his clan) other option would be to admit the whole thing and get a sentence as nazi supporters. OF COURSE they are going to say they were "opposed" to nazism after nazis got rounded up. As I said, they still got brains. You seem to assume these guys won't adapt with recent events.

See? You prove my point. I can provide you evidence that refutes your position...and your response is "they are lying and faking it...."


Delusional....good luck to you and your tin foil hat.

Yes, Yes, People like the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, Warburg, Thyssen, Thurn und Taxis and especially Rothschilds are pillars of society, beacons of humanity, our saviours from evil....


well much is happening in the dark despite shills like yourself struggling to give them a good name. Here is one example how evil they are.

Do you see the smirk on his face. This guy will not spend a day in real prison. He was caught yes, but strings are pulled and positions offered to corruptable judges and prosecutors. He ll walk and continue to do what they all do best. Use ppl like yourself to promote their "philanthropic" cause in the world.

Sure you can always claim all of these scum are not like him but I know better. This case is but one small tip of a huge iceberg hidden under black surface of immeasurable evil.

Is that your goal? Defend the CFR so you could be be included in the CFR or profit some of the Rich Guy's wealth? I personally have higher ethical standards than to look for partnership with destroyers of the Earth - its ecosystem, its health, etc.

It's a pyramid structure. 4700 under the control of a handful of rich men who are afraid to lose control. Like Bush, member of the CFR.
