Julie Fernandes, who served as the deputy assistant attorney general in the civil rights division of President Barack Obama's Justice Department and then as a director of Voting Rights and Democracy at Soros's Open Society Foundations, will now serve as the associate director of the institutional accountability and individual liberty at the Rockefeller Family Fund, a New York-based nonprofit founded by the Rockefeller family. Fernandes's move is another signal that Democrats are moving to undermine voter ID laws following Donald Trump's victory in 2016. "I am thrilled to join the innovative and dynamic team at RFF at such a critical...

The first evening of a three day auction of billionaire oil dynasty scion David Rockefeller’s world class private art collection has raised over $646m, an amount that already exceeds the valuation of the entire 1,600 item list. Among the works of art for sale at Christie’s in Manhattan on Tuesday evening were a Rose period portrait by Pablo Picasso that sold for $115m (including fees) and a painting by Monet from his water garden series that sold for a record $80.7m.

This Atlantic story reveals how Americans lived 100 years ago. (HT Warren Smith) By the standards of a middle-class American today, that lifestyle was poor, inconvenient, dreary, and dangerous. (Only a few years later – in 1924 – the 16-year-old son of a sitting U.S. president would die of an infected blister that the boy got on his toe while playing tennis on the White House grounds.)You could, however, afford the state-of-the-art phonograph of the era.

David Rockefeller, the famed banker and philanthropist, died Monday at age 101, according to a spokesperson for the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Rockefeller served as chairman and CEO of Chase Manhattan Bank, which after a series of mergers is now JPMorgan Chase (JPM). But he was also born into great wealth as a grandson of John D. Rockefeller, who was the founder of the Standard Oil empire and America's first billionaire. According to Forbes, David Rockefeller was worth $3.3 billion at the time of his death, making him the world's oldest billionaire. He died in his sleep Monday morning of congestive...

David Rockefeller, the banker and philanthropist with the fabled family name who controlled Chase Manhattan bank for more than a decade and wielded influence around the world even longer as he spread the gospel of American capitalism, died on Monday morning at his home in Pocantico Hills, N.Y. He was 101. Mr. Rockefeller could well be the last of an increasingly less visible family to have cut so imposing a figure on the world stage. As an advocate of the economic interests of the United States and of his own bank, he was a force in global financial affairs and...

So rich, there was only one man’s name this dish could bear at the time according to the chef who so masterfully created famous recipes in the French Quarter. January 10 recognizes National Oysters Rockefeller Day! In 1889 in the renowned kitchen of Antoine’s, Jules Alciatore developed a recipe for baked oysters on the half shell with sauce and bread crumbs that would earn the name Oysters Rockefeller. A dish so rich Alciatore himself admitted, “…I know of no other name rich enough for their richness.” While other restaurants serve similar dishes, only historic Antoine’s (founded by Antoine Alciatore, Jules...

US Middle Class Still Suffering from Rockefeller-Kissinger Industrial Transfer Scheme to China DECEMBER 31, 2016 BY 21WIRE The Truth Hound When Henry Kissinger and David Rockefeller met with Zhou Enlai in China in 1973—just after President Richard Nixon had visited China establishing official relations—an understanding was reached whereby the U.S. would supply industrial capital and know-how to China. In return Kissinger-connected corporations would gain the monopolistic advantage of low-cost labor production which could outcompete all U.S. domestic industry. The comparative advantage gained was being able to hire Chinese laborers who were ready to work hard at exceedingly low cost—with no...
 

New Report Exposes Rockefeller Dynasty's Role in "Climate" Scam

The New American ^ | 04 January 2017 | Alex Newman
An unfathomably wealthy banking and oil dynasty has been hijacking governments, media organs, universities, non-profits, and other power centers to expand its control over the economy and the energy sector in particular, according to a recently released investigation by a watchdog group. That dynasty, of course, is the Rockefeller family. In essence, they have largely created, bankrolled, and weaponized what is known as the “green” movement “as a means to expand their empire over the past three decades,” the report found.    Under the guise of fighting alleged “man-made global-warming,” the Rockefeller family and its billions have been bankrolling everything...

American globalism is represented by Hillary Clinton, the Bush family and several Republican candidates, most of which have been members of – and participated in events organized by – the Council On Foreign Relations. Almost all American candidates that subscribe to globalism have received direct and indirect financial support from Rockefeller/Rothschild offshoots. This isn't a conspiracy, it's politics as usual. The Rockefeller and Rothschild families are so influential that gaining the direct support of one family member can mean gaining endorsements and support from several multinational organizations. A few months ago, Wikileaks uploaded thousands of emails from Hillary Clinton's personal...
 

Rockefeller Family Fund hits Exxon, divests from fossil fuels

HOUSTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Rockefeller Family Fund said on Wednesday it will divest from fossil fuels as quickly as possible and "eliminate holdings" of Exxon Mobil Corp , saying the oil company associated with the family fortune has misled the public about climate change risks. Though only a sliver of the endowment's modest $130 million in assets is invested in fossil fuels, the move is notable because a century ago John D. Rockefeller Sr. made a fortune running Standard Oil, a precursor to Exxon Mobil. The charity said it will also divest from coal and Canadian oil sands. Given...

Free Thought Project ^ | February 2, 2016 | John Vibes
Recent outbreaks of a sickness known as the Zika virus have sparked hysteria across the globe, and many reports have actually indicated that this is likely a man-made disaster, as the origin of Zika itself is somewhat strange. The virus was “discovered” in 1947, however, it was not discovered in the wild nor did it spontaneously arise. In fact, it was discovered by Rockefeller Foundation scientists in a monkey that they had in captivity, leading many to believe that this was the result of some type of experiment. Since then, cases of Zika have been extremely rare, but in the...

Five Black Lives Matter protesters—four of them women, including a 17-year-old and an intellectual property attorney—were forcefully arrested near the north entrance to Rockefeller Plaza on Monday night, after NYPD officers erected metal barricades to disrupt their weekly People's Monday march. An extension of larger protests last winter, People's Monday highlights specific victims of police brutality year-round. This week, protesters met at Grand Central around 7:00 p.m. to stage a call-and-response reading of several facts pertaining to the October 2014 death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, a Chicago teenager who was shot sixteen times by Officer Jason Van Dyke. The shooting...

To mark his 100th birthday, David Rockefeller, the former Chase Bank CEO and oldest living billionaire, is donating a thousand acres...

Happy Rockefeller, the socialite whose 1963 marriage to Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York, soon after both had been divorced, raised a political storm in a more genteel time and may have cost him the Republican presidential nomination in 1964, died on Tuesday at her home in Tarrytown, N.Y. She was 88. The family said in a statement that she died after a brief illness.
