According to a press release issued by RIT Capital Partners and Rockefeller & Co, the two financial giants created a partnership between what the release describes as a collaboration between two “family interests”. The assets at stake in the deal include Rockefeller’s $34 billion, and RIT’s $1.9 billion in assets.
While there are not many very good sources to draw upon for legitimate conspiracies about the two families, there are enough legitimate sources that confirm a certain agenda exists between two of the world’s wealthiest families to achieve even more money and power than ever before.
This strategic partnership confirms that such a collaboration exists, and that the controlling interests within those families hope to extend their power and influence within a struggling world market.
Evidence of the Rothschild and Rockefeller Conspiracy
While you’ll find conspiracy theorists blaming the Rockefeller and Rothschild families for everything from 9-11 to whatever crashed at Roswell, the hard facts show that while the two families hold some power and influence throughout the world, they are by no means the most influential families in the world.
It is no secret that David Rockefeller, the current “patriarch” of the Rockefeller family is an honorary chair of both the Bilderberg group and the European Council on Foreign Relations (1).
According to the French press and first reported in the Hilaire duBerrier Report in 1991, Rockefeller publicly stated his viewpoints on whether or not there should be an elite group of wealthy controlling the financial, political and social direction of the entire world.
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years….It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during these years….The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers … is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in the past centuries.” (2)
Sure enough, the quote is taken out of context, but the overall sentiment is clear. The Rockefeller family and its leadership have every intention to secretly direct the world with its “intellectual” superiority and “supranational sovereignty”.
There are two very scary ramifications of his comment, and it is that if all folks within the secretive circle of these financial elite truly feel that they are intellectually superior to the rest of the world – rather than the fact that they’ve been born into their socio-economic stations in life – it reveals the borderline sociopathic, delusional nature of the group.
Even scarier is the fact that if there are truly world leaders taking these groups seriously – as there usually are when there is so much financial backing involved – it paints a ominous picture for the future of freedom and liberty around the world.
The Rothschild Family
The picture is somewhat different for the Rothschild family. To support the power of the Rothschild family, many cite the fact that the Rothschild family bailed out the England banking system as far back as the Victorian times, and profiting from the wars through the decades.
However, the Rothschild family is nowhere near its financial might from Victorian times, and the assets cited in the recent press release, in comparison to the Rockefeller fortune, is evidence of that. It’s nothing to shake a stick at, but it isn’t at the level of assets that the wealthiest institutions in the world own.
Forbes list of the world’s billionaires include Carlos Slim Helu and Family at $69 billion, Bill Gates at $61 billion, Warren Buffet at $44 billion, and Amancio Ortega at $37.5 billion.
For all his power and “intelligence”, David Rockefeller Sr is listed as number 491 at $2.5 billion, and Nathaniel Rothschild is way toward the bottom at 1,153 with a measly $1 billion net worth. This isn’t exactly the sort of overwhelming wealth and power one would expect the leaders of the two “most influential” families in the world would have. After all – if they are so in control of the world’s financial institutions and the global direction of the Earth’s banking structure, one would expect they’d give themselves a slightly larger piece of the pie.
Alas, while the announcement of these two large financial institutions – these family institutions – joining forces may represent a significant collaboration of two somewhat influential families, it does not represent an Earth-shattering shift of power. Now, if you told me that Bill Gates and Warren Buffett were joining forces, I’d start to worry.
Wealthy Elitism is Most Troubling
What is probably the most troubling aspect of these institutions joining forces isn’t so much the financial power the two families hold, but it’s the delusions of grandeur that family members maintain. You can see it in their public statements and writings – an unhealthy belief in their elitist nature, simply because of the mounds of family wealth that has been hoarded through the generations.
You can get a sense of that elitism in the statement of David Rockefeller in the press release, when he stated:
“Lord Rothschild and I have known each other for five decades. The connection between our two families remains very strong. I am delighted to welcome Jacob and RIT as shareholders and partners in the ongoing development of our investment management and wealth advisory businesses.”
It is a blatant nod in the direction of conspiracy theorists that contend much of the power and wealth of these families come mostly from family connections and global power than anything else. It’s almost as though the two families bask in such notoriety and myth, enjoying the illusion of global control and power, even though the two families enjoy nothing of the sort when compared to some of the leading financial institutions and the wealthiest people in the world.
In other words, the biggest danger of this collaboration is less that the Rothschild and Rockefeller families are going to take over the world, but instead that the elitist mentality of these two wealthy families is going to continue to grow, fueled by the ramblings and awe of delusional conspiracy theorists across the world.
This doesn’t mean that I don’t believe there is a wealthy cabal of individuals meeting secretly in the hopes of directing the world’s financial and political path in a direction they would prefer. What it means is that these individuals hold far less power than people give them credit for, and even less influence than they give themselves credit for.
