Chapter Three




With the Illuminati in complete control of our monetary system, they
were ready for the next step. They couldn't touch the money of the
people, because the Constitution did not contain any provision for the
taxing of income; so they now set into motion a plan to accomplish this,
in order to oppress the middle class, and increase the lower class, who
would have to depend on the government for their survival.

>From 1862-72, to support the Civil War effort, Congress enacted the
nation's first income tax: 3% on incomes from $600 to $10,000, and 5%
for incomes above that, which was later deemed to be insufficient, and
it was increased twice, till it reached a high of 10% on all incomes
over $5,000. The tax was criticized because it wasn't apportioned among
the states according to population. The Act of 1862 also provided for a
sales tax, excise tax, and inheritance tax; and established the office
of Commissioner of Internal Revenue, who was given the power to assess,
levy, and collect taxes, and was given the authority to enforce tax
laws. In 1868, tobacco and alcoholic beverages were taxed.

The income tax was discontinued in 1872, but after heavy lobbying by the
Populist Party, it was reinstated in 1894, as part of the Wilson-German
Tariff Bill, when Congress enacted a 2% tax on all incomes over $4,000 a
year. On May 20, 1895, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that the tax was
unconstitutional, because it was not distributed among the states in
accordance with the Constitution. Newspapers controlled by the
Illuminati denounced the Court's decision.

When the income tax legislation was introduced in the Senate in 1894,
Sen. Aldrich had come out against it, saying it was "communistic and
socialistic," but in 1909, he proposed the 16th Amendment to the
Constitution, with the support of President Taft, which called for the
creation of a progressive graduated income tax. It was ratified in
February, 1913, and levied a 1% tax on all incomes over $3,000, and a
progressive surtax on incomes over $20,000. Although praised by
reformers, conservatives said it was "a first step toward complete
confiscation of private property."

According to a book called The Law That Never Was, by Bill Benson and M.
J. Beckman, on February 25, 1913, shortly before the end of his term,
Secretary of State Philander C. Knox ignored various irregularities, and
fraudulently declared that the 16th Amendment had been ratified by
three-fourths of the 48 states. Benson traveled to all the states, and
to the National Archives in Washington, DC, obtaining more than 17,000
pages of documents that proved that the 16th Amendment was not ratified.
A 16-page memo dated February 15, 1913, to Knox, from his solicitor,
stated that only four states had "correctly" ratified the amendment,
that Minnesota had not forwarded their copy yet, and that the
resolutions from 33 states contained punctuation, capitalization, or
wording different than the Resolution that was approved by Congress. The
memo read: "In the certified copies of the resolutions passed by the
legislatures of the several states ratifying the proposed 16th
amendment, it appears that only four of these resolutions (those
submitted by Arizona, North Dakota, Tennessee and New Mexico) have
quoted absolutely accurately and correctly the 16th amendment as
proposed by Congress. The other thirty-three resolutions all contain
errors either of punctuation, capitalization, or wording. Minnesota, it
is to be remembered, did not transmit to the Department a copy of the
resolution passed by the legislature of the state. The resolutions
passed by twenty-two states contain errors only of capitalization or
punctuation, or both, while those of eleven states contain errors in the
wording..." Benson discovered that some word changes and misplaced
commas were done by legislative intent. State Legislatures voting to
ratify a proposed Constitutional amendment, must use a certified, exact
copy, as passed by the Congress. Since this was not done, legally, the
Government can only collect an income tax within the guidelines set
forth by the Supreme Court in Pollock v. Farmers Loan & Trust Co., 157
U. S. 429(1895), and all sections of the Internal Revenue Code, based on
the 16th Amendment, are not valid.

However, this fact does not really get to the heart of the matter.
According to Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution of the United
States: "The Congress shall have power...to exclusive legislation in all
cases whatsoever, over such district (not exceeding ten miles square) as
may, by cession of particular States and the acceptance of Congress,
become the seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise
like authority over all places purchased by the consent of the
legislature of the State in which the same shall be, for the erection of
forts, magazines, arsenals, dockyards, and other needful building..."
This passage reveals the true intention of our forefathers, which was
for the Federal Government to coordinate the efforts of all the States
in order to combine their resources when it came to things like trade
and defense, since the States were actually like separate countries.
Therefore, the Congress only had jurisdiction over the area of
Washington, D.C., and non-state territories like Alaska, and
Hawaii(before they became states); and the present countries of Puerto
Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and others; and Federal
property such as military bases. This area will be hereinafter referred
to as the District(as in the District of Columbia), as it is in the
United States Code ( see 26 USC 7701(a)(l), and 26 USC 3121(e)(l) ).

Since America is a Republic, and not a democracy, the Government has a
responsibility to protect the inalienable rights of its citizens, as
granted by the Constitution, rather than to grant privileges, known as
civil rights, which are decided by the will of the majority. When the
sovereign state citizen gave power to the State Constitution, which
created State Government; this in turn gave power to the U.S.
Constitution, which created the Federal Government; which has, in a
sense, incorporated and gave power to the United States Government; who
has turned the U.S. citizen into a subject of the U.S. Government.
Therefore, the Federal Government has been able to wield its influence
over the entire country, rather than the area referred to as the

This is possible, because, for all intents and purposes, there are two
of every state. For example, the official name of Pennsylvania, is the
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; but to the U.S. Government, it is known as
the State of Pennsylvania. There are even two state flags. One with a
gold fringe, which represents the State of Pennsylvania, and martial law
under the U.S. Government; and one without the fringe, which represents
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The gold-fringed flag was reserved for
use by the General of the Army, where it was present at military
headquarters and displayed at courtmartials. Its use elsewhere, as a
government battle flag, was only to be done at the discretion of the
President, within his role as the Commander-in-Chief of the military, to
establish the jurisdiction of the military presence. This gold-fringed
flag, which is common in many public places, such as courthouses, and
schools, is not the national flag which represents our constitutional
republic. It is a symbol of federal government jurisdiction.

When Franklin D. Roosevelt was inaugurated on March 4, 1933, he called
for an emergency session of Congress on March 9, where the Emergency
Banking Relief Act (also known as the War Powers Act, which seized all
the country's constitutional gold and silver coinage) was passed, which
gave FDR the power to issue any order, and do anything he felt was
necessary to run the country, without restriction, by authority of the
Trading With the Enemy Act of October 6, 1917 (which placed all German
citizens under the authority of the President, because they were enemies
of the U.S). We then became under the authority of an emergency war
government. According to the Congressional Record in 1933, Rep. James
Buck said: "...the doctrine of emergency is the worst. It means that
when Congress declares an emergency, there is no Constitution. This
means it's dead." According to Senate Report 93549 in 1973, this country
has continued to be in a state of emergency since 1933, which means that
"freedoms and governmental procedures guaranteed by the Constitution
have, in varying degrees, been abridged by laws brought into force by
states of national emergency." The Act was never repealed after war-tim
e, and in 1976, Congress passed the National Emergencies Termination Act
(Public Document 94412). However, the last paragraph said that it didn't
apply to any "authorities under the act of October 6, 1917, as amended."

Because of Executive Orders 6073, 6102, 6111, and 6262 by President
Franklin D. Roosevelt, it is believed that the District went bankrupt in
1933, and since then, have undergone various "reorganizations". It was
in 1933 that FDR enacted the Social Security Act, which effectively
redefined the word "employee" to indicate "government worker". Then came
the Public Salary Tax Act in 1939, which gave the U.S. Government the
power to levy a tax on those people who were either government
employees, or who lived and worked in a "Federal Area". A year later,
the Buck Act was passed, which gave the U.S. Government the power to
create a "Federal Area" so they could levy the Public Salary Tax. Since
it was unconstitutional to tax anyone outside of the jurisdiction of the
District, this Act, in Section 110(d) and (e), made the land within the
territorial boundaries of a State, a "Federal Area". This, in effect,
created a paper state, known as a Federal Area, for the purposes of the
U.S. Government; and those people who were a sovereign state citizen,
now found themselves also living in this Federal Area. Now the U.S.
Government had to make that citizen one of their subjects by bringing
them under the jurisdiction of the District.

This was accomplished by deceiving the citizen into entering any
adhesion contract with the U.S. Government, such as a Social Security
application, an Income Tax form, a Driver's License application, a Bank
Account application, and other similar things. Contrary to what most
people believe, it is not mandatory to apply for a Social Security
number; however, in order for a sovereign state citizen to be eligible
for Social Security benefits, they have to waive the rights given to
them under our Republic.

Probably, the most incredible example of the adhesion contract, is the
Income Tax system. In 1884, it was accepted that the "property which
every man has is his own labor (and) as it is the original foundation of
all other property, so it is the most sacred and inviolable." Therefore,
since "wages" are received as compensation for labor, it can not be
legally taxed. "Income", however, is the process of profiting from a
business (someone else's labor) or investments, and is taxable, as in a
Corporation, which is an artificial entity which is given the right to
exist by the State. The Constitution only allows the Congress to collect
taxes, and that is limited to a uniform excise tax on gasoline, alcohol,
tobacco, telephone bills, firearms, and tires- things revolving in one
way or another around interstate commerce. The payment of these taxes
are voluntary, because they are based on consumption. These funds go
directly to the U.S. Treasury to pay the expenses of the country.

Because we live in a Republic, the Internal Revenue Service Code, Title
26 USC, could not be passed into law by the Congress, and instead, was
passed only as a Resolution, which is a formal expression of intent that
was to pertain only to citizens of the District. So, how do they make
you a citizen of the District? In the upper left-hand corner of the 1040
Federal Income Tax form is a place to put your preprinted address label,
which is designated with the words "label here". However, to the left of
that is the word "label", which seemingly identifies the entire section
as a whole. However, the word "label" actually has another legal meaning
that has nothing to do with your name and address. According to Black's
Law Dictionary, "label" is defined as: "A slip of ribbon, parchment, or
paper, attached as a codicil to a deed or other writing to hold the
appended seal." Since your "seal" is your signature, the "label" is
actually a codicil which indicates you are waiving your constitutional
right as a sovereign state citizen to become a citizen of the District
and its Federal Area..

Although the Internal Revenue Service is considered to be a Bureau of
the Department of Treasury, like the Federal Reserve, they are not part
of the Federal Government, and in fact were incorporated in Delaware in
1933. It is pointed out that all official Federal Government mail is
sent postage-free because of the franking privilege, however, the IRS
has to pay their own postage, which indicates that they are not a
government entity. They are in fact a collection agency for the Federal
Reserve, because they do not collect any taxes for the U.S. Treasury.
All funds collected are turned over to the Federal Reserve. If you have
ever sent a check to the IRS, you will find that it was endorsed over to
the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve, in turn, deposits the money
with the International Monetary Fund of the United Nations, where it is
filtered down to the International Development Association (see Treasury
Delegation Order No. 91), which is part of the International Bank for
Reconstruction and Development, commonly known as the World Bank.
Therefore, it is now clear, that the American people are unknowingly
contributing to the financing of a World Government in-the-making.

The income tax was intended to rob the earnings of the low and middle
class; or as the saying goes, "the more you make, the more they take."
However, the tax didn't touch the huge fortunes of Illuminati members.
The tax was an indication that the U. S. was heading for a planned war,
because they couldn't go into a war without money. Since the tax
provided less than 5% of total Federal revenues, increases were later
made to accommodate World War I, FDR's New Deal, and World War II. In
July, 1943, workers in this country were subject to a payroll
withholding tax in the form of a "victory tax" that was touted as a
temporary tax to boost the economy because of the War, and would later
be discontinued. However, the deduction remained because it forced c

Under the guise of philanthropy, the Illuminati avoided taxation by
transferring their wealth to tax-free foundations.

Foundations are either state or federally chartered. The first, was
chartered by Benjamin Franklin in 1790, in Philadelphia and Boston, from
a $4,444.49 fund, to make loans "to young married artificers (artisans)
of good character." In 1800, the Magdalen Society was established in
Philadelphia, "to ameliorate that distressed condition of those unhappy
females who have been seduced from the paths of virtue, and are desirous
of returning to a life of rectitude." In 1846, the Smithsonian
Institution was established by the bequest of English scientist James
Smithson "for the increase and diffusion of knowledge among men." The
Peabody Education Fund was initiated in 1867 by banker George Peabody,
to promote education in the South.

Before 1900, there were only 18 foundations; from 1910-19, there were
76; during the 1920's, 173; the 1930's, 288; the 1940's, 1,638; and
during the 1950's, there were 2,839 foundations.

United Press International (UPI) reported on July 19, 1969, that the top
596 foundations had an income that was twice the net earnings of the
country's 50 largest commercial banking institutions.

According to Rep. Wright Patman, in a report to the 87th Congress, it is
because of the existence of foundations, that "only one-third of the
income of the nation is actually taxed."

Some of the important foundations are: Ford Foundation (Ford Motor Co.),
Rockefeller Foundation ( Standard Oil), Duke Endowment (Duke family
fortune), John A. Hartford Foundation (Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea),
W. K. Kellogg Foundation (the Kellogg Cereals), Carnegie Corp.(Carnegie
Steel), Alfred P. Sloan Foundation (General Motors), Moody Foundation
(W. L. Moody's oil, realty, newspapers, and bank holdings), Lilly
Endowment (Eli Lilly Pharmaceuticals), Pew Memorial Trust (Sun Oil Co.
or Sunoco), and the Danforth Foundation (Purina Cereals), which all have
assets of well over $100 million.

The first Congressional Committee to investigate the tax-free
foundations, was the Cox Committee in 1952, led by Rep. Eugene E. Cox, a
Democrat from Georgia. Its purpose was to find out which "foundations
and organizations are using their resources for purposes other than the
purposes for which they were established, and especially to determine
which such foundations and organizations are using their resources for
un-American and subversive activities or for purposes not in the
interest of tradition of the United States."

Cox discovered that officers and trustees of some foundations were
Communists, and that these foundations had given grants to Communists or
Communist-controlled organizations. A former Communist official, Maurice
Malkin, testified that in 1919 they were trying "to penetrate these
organizations (foundations), if necessary take control of them and their
treasuries...that they should be able to finance the Communist Party
propaganda in the United States." During the investigation, Cox died,
and the facts were glossed over in a cover-up. Another member of the
Committee, Rep. Carroll Reece of Tennessee, the former Chairman of the
Republican National Committee, forced another investigation in 1953, to
see if foundations were being used "for political purposes, propaganda,
or attempts to influence legislation." The Washington Post called the
investigation "unnecessary," and that it was "stupidly wasteful of
public funds." Reece even referred to a "conspiracy." The Eisenhower
Administration was clearly against the probe. Three of the four who were
selected for the Committee, with Reece, were House members who had voted
against the investigation. Rep. Wayne Hays of Ohio, worked from the
inside to stall the investigation. During one 3-hour session, he
interrupted the same witness 246 times. He prohibited evidence
discovered by two of its investigators from being used. Rene A. Wormser,
legal counsel to the Committee, revealed why, in his 1958 book
Foundations: Their Power and Influence: "Mr. Hays told us one day that
'the White House' had been in touch with him and asked him if he would
cooperate to kill the Committee." Wormser also revealed that the
Committee had discovered that these foundations were using their wealth
to attack the basic structure of our Constitution and Judeo-Christian
ethics; and that the influence of major foundations had "reached far
into government, into the policy-making circles of Congress and into the
State Department."

Reece's Special Committee to Investigate Tax Exempt Foundations
discovered that many foundations were financing civil rights groups,
liberal political groups, political extremist groups, and supporting
revolutionary activities throughout the world. The Committee reported:
"Substantial evidence indicates there is more than a mere close working
together among some foundations operating in the international field.
There is here, as in the general realm of social sciences, a close
interlock. The Carnegie Corporation, the Carnegie Endowment for
International Peace, the Rockefeller Foundation and, recently, the Ford
Foundation, joined by some others, have commonly cross-financed, to a
tune of many millions... organizations concerned with internationalists,
among them, the Institute of Pacific Relations, the Foreign Policy
Association (which was "virtually a creature of the Carnegie
Endowment"), the Council on Foreign Relations, the Royal Institute of
International Affairs and others...and that it happened by sheer coin
cidence stretches credulity."

On August 19, 1954, Reece summed up his investigation: "It has been said
that the foundations are a power second only to that of the Federal
Government itself... Perhaps the Congress should now admit that the
foundations have become more powerful, in some areas, at least, than the
legislative branch of the Government." The investigation ended in 1955,
when funding was withheld.


The Rockefeller Family:

John Davison Rockefeller, Sr. (1839-1937)

John Davison Rockefeller, Jr. (1874-1960)

John Davison Rockefeller, III (1906-78)

Nelson Rockefeller (1908-79)

Laurance Rockefeller (1910- )

Winthrop Rockefeller (1912-73)

David Rockefeller (1915- )

John Davison Rockefeller(1839-1937), grandfather of former
Vice-President Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller, and David Rockefeller(head of
the Chase Manhattan Bank) was the richest man of his time. He started
out in 1859 as a produce merchant, turning to oil in 1865, at the age of
26. In 1870, when Standard Oil of Ohio was incorporated, Rockefeller
controlled 21 out of 26 refineries in Cleveland. By 1871, Standard Oil
was the largest refining company in the world. In 1879, he controlled
over 90% of all refined oil sold in the country, with 20,000 producing
wells, and 100,000 employees. In 1884, he moved his main office to New
York City; and by 1885, Standard Oil virtually controlled the entire oil
industry in the United States, and had set up branches in Western Europe
and China.

The Rockefellers and Rothschilds have been partners ever since the
1880's, when Rockefeller was able to get a rebate on each barrel of oil
he shipped over the Pennsylvania, Baltimore and Ohio railroads, which
were owned by Kuhn, Loeb and Co.

In 1888, details concerning the Rockefeller Oil Trust began to leak out
in the newspapers. In Ohio, at the time, a company within the state
could not own stock in a company in another state, which occurred when
Rockefeller bought out smaller companies. Using the secret Trust, which
was established in 1879, the trustees for the companies that had been
taken over, the 37 Standard Oil stockholders, and Standard Oil of Ohio,
relayed all out-of-state subsidiary stock to three clerks from Standard
Oil. In 1882, the three "dummy" trustees, 42 Standard Oil stockholders,
and Standard Oil of Ohio, transferred all its stock to nine trustees,
who were controlled by Rockefeller. In March, 1892, the Ohio Supreme
Court ordered Standard Oil to withdraw from the Trust, after Ohio and
other states outlawed trusts. Rockefeller countered by moving Standard
Oil to New Jersey, who allowed their corporations to hold stock in
out-of-state companies, thus, Standard Oil of New Jersey became that
holding Company.

In 1889, Rockefeller helped establish, with a grant of $600,000, the
University of Chicago. He promised to support the school for ten years,
which he did, donating $34,708,375. In 1901, he incorporated the
Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research (now Rockefeller University),
with a grant of $200,000. In 1903, he established the Rockefeller
General Education Board, which he donated $42 million to, within a two
year period (and $129 million in total). The Board was organized by Fred
Gates, the front man for the Pillsbury flour company. In 1909, the
Rockefeller Sanitation Commission was established, to which he gave $1

Rockefeller's goal was for Standard Oil to be the world's only refining
company, and to that end, it was alleged that he blew up a competitor's
refinery in Buffalo, New York. He owned large blocks of stock in quite a
few newspapers, including the Buffalo People's Journal, the Oil City
Derrick (in Pennsylvania), the Cleveland Herald, and the Cleveland News
Leader. He had contracts with over 100 newspapers in Ohio, to print news
releases and editorials furnished by a Standard Oil-controlled agency,
in return for advertisement. He "owned" several New Jersey and Ohio
state legislators. Rep. Joseph Sibley, of Pennsylvania, was President of
the Rockefeller-controlled Galena Signal Oil Co.; and in 1898, Rep. John
P. Elkins, also of Pennsylvania, accepted a $5,000 bribe from Standard
Oil. In 1904, Sen. Bois Penrose of Pennsylvania received a $25,000 bribe
from Rockefeller, and Sen. Cornelius Bliss received $100,000. Others who
received Standard Oil bribes: Sen. Matthew Quay(PA), Sen. Joseph B.
Foraker(OH), Sen. Joseph Bailey(TX), Sen. Nathan B. Scott, Sen. Mark
Hanna(OH), Sen. Stephen B. Elkins(WV), Rep. W. C. Stone(PA), and Sen.
McLaurin(SC). President William McKinley, through Sen. Mark Hanna, was a
pawn of Standard Oil and the bankers.

The "rebates" Rockefeller received from various railroads, were actually
kickbacks. These rebates made it possible for him to keep his prices
lower so he could bankrupt his competition. He said: "Competition is a
sin." Standard Oil also made kickbacks , in the form of stock, to
railroad people, such as William H. Vanderbilt, who received stock
without contributing any capital, as did various bankers who lent money
freely to Standard Oil.

Willie Winkfield, a Rockefeller messenger, sold evidence of
Rockefeller's bribery to William Randolph Hearst's New York American,
for $20,500, and Hearst revealed the information at election time, in an
attempt to get the Rockefeller stooges out of office. In 1905, an
expose' by Ida M. Tarbell, called The History of Standard Oil Co., which
came on the heels of an 1894 book by Henry Demarest Lloyd, called Wealth
Against Commonwealth, began to turn public opinion against Standard Oil.

Robert M. LaFollette, Sr., in a speech to the Senate in March, 1908,
said that fewer than 100 men controlled the business interests of the
country. However, a few years later, through an analysis of the
Directory of Directors, it was discovered that through interlocking
directorates, less than a dozen men controlled the country's business
interests. Most notable were Rockefeller and Morgan. On December 13,
1911, George M. Reynolds of the Continental and Commercial Bank of
Chicago, said to a group of other bankers: "I believe the money power
now lies in the hands of a dozen men."

In March, 1910, Sen. Nelson Aldrich of Rhode Island, introduced a Bill
of Incorporation for the Rockefeller Foundation, but it came at a time
when there was an antitrust suit against Standard Oil, and the Bill was
withdrawn. On May 15, 1911, Standard Oil was found to be in violation of
the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890, and the U. S. Supreme Court ordered,
in a 20,000 word decision, the breakup of Standard Oil of New Jersey.
The Court said that Standard Oil wanted to establish a monopoly in order
"to drive others from the field and exclude them from their right to
trade," and that "seven men and a corporate machine have conspired
against their fellow citizens. For the safety of the Republic, we now
decree that the dangerous conspiracy must be ended..." Standard Oil was
forced to dissolve into 38 separate companies, including Standard Oil of
Indiana(Amoco), Standard Oil of Ohio(Sohio), Standard Oil of Louisiana,
Standard Oil of New Jersey(Exxon, which is one of the largest
corporations in the world, controlling 321 other companies, including
Humble Oil and Venezuela's Creole Oil), Standard Oil of New York(Socony
or Mobil); and others such as Continental Oil(Conoco),
Atlantic-Richfield (Arco) , Gulf, Phillips 66, Texaco, and Marathon Oil,
which were also Rockefeller-controlled companies. Rockefeller owned 25%
of Standard Oil of New Jersey, which meant that he now owned 25% of all
38 Standard Oil subsidiaries. In 1914, the Congressional Record referred
to Standard Oil as the "shadow government" and as the extent of its
holdings became known, its value tripled.

In May, 1913, after three years of Congressional opposition, the New
York States Legislature voted to establish the Rockefeller
Foundation(now located in the Time-Life Building), "to promote the
well-being of mankind throughout the world." However, a 1946 report
stated that the "challenge of the future is to make this one world." The
endowment to establish the Foundation totaled $182,851,000, and was
given in securities, enabling the foundation to disperse over $1
billion, even though it is only third in total assets compared to the
Ford and Johnson Foundations.

In 1899, with an estimated wealth of $200,000,000, Rockefeller
"retired". But only in regard to being involved in the day-to-day
operation of the company. He didn't officially retire until 1911, when
he resigned as President of Standard Oil. He had become America's first
billionaire, yet when he died, he only left a taxable estate of
$26,410,837.10, which after Federal and State taxes were levied, left
about $16 million. The remainder of his fortune had been left to
surviving relatives ($240 million), his sons($465 million), and his

Rockefeller, said to own 20% of American industry, between 1855 and his
death in 1937, gave away nearly $550 million. In 1855, when he was 16,
he gave $2.77 of his meager earnings to charity, 1856($19.31),
1857($28.37), 1858($43.85), 1859($72.22), 1860($107.35), 1861($259.97),
1865($1,012), 1869($5,000), 1871($6,860), 1879($29,000), 1880($32,865),
1884($119,000), 1891($500,000), 1892($1,500,000), 1893($1,472,122),
1907($39,170,480), 1909($71,453,231), 1913($45,499,367),
1914($67,627,095), and 1919($138,624,574 ). He gave $182,851,480 to the
Rockefeller Foundation, $129,209,167 to the General Education Board,
$73,985,313 to the Laura Spelman and Rockefeller Memorial Fund, and
$60,673,409 to the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research.

John D. Rockefeller, Jr.(1874-1960), who was married to Abby Aldrich,
daughter of Sen. Nelson Aldrich, according to a February, 1905 McClure's
 magazine article, was part of a corrupt political machine. He continued
the charitable tradition of his father. He spent over $40 million to buy
up land and convert it to National Parks, donating it to the public. The
most prominent of these parks is the Jackson Hole Preserve at the Grand
Teton National Park in northeastern Wyoming. In 1926, he reconstructed
the colonial town of Williamsburg, Virginia, spending $52.6 million to
restore 81 colonial buildings, and rebuild 404 others from original
plans, on their original foundations. Over 700 modern homes were torn
down in the 83 acre area to bring the 18th century town back to life. He
also built 45 other buildings, including three hotels to serve the
public, and planted gardens.

In 1929, he began building the Rockefeller Center in New York City, a
complex of 14 buildings, at a cost of $125 million, which was to surpass
the stature of the Dupont's Empire State Building. The Rockefeller
empire is run from the 55th and 56th floors of the RCA building, at 30
Rockefeller Plaza.

Rockefeller was quoted to have said: "So it may come to pass that
someday...no one will speak of 'my country', but all will speak of 'our

He pushed his sons into five different areas of influence: John III,
into philanthropy; Nelson, into government(4-term Governor of New York,
and Vice-President under Ford); Laurance, into business; Winthrop, into
oil(also 2- term Governor of Arkansas); and David, into banking(Chairman
of the Chase Manhattan Bank and Director of the Federal Reserve Bank of
New York).

The Rockefellers, undeniably the richest family in America, increased
their fortune by marrying into other wealthy and influential families.
By 1937, there existed "an almost unbroken line of biological
relationships from the Rockefellers through one-half of the wealthiest
sixty families in the nation."

Percy Rockefeller(John, Jr.'s cousin), married Isabel Stillman, daughter
of James A. Stillman, President of National City Bank. William G.
Rockefeller(another cousin), married S. Elsie Stillman.

Ethel Geraldine Rockefeller married Marcellus Hartley Dodge, which
linked Standard Oil and National City Bank, to the $50,000,000 fortune
of the Remington Arms Company and the Phelps Dodge Corp.

J. Stillman Rockefeller(grand nephew of John, Sr.) married Nancy C. S.
Carnegie, the grand niece of Andrew Carnegie. Their son was named Andrew
Carnegie Rockefeller.

Edith Rockefeller(John, Jr.'s sister), married Harold F. McCormick, an
heir to the International Harvester Co. fortune. Their son, Fowler,
grandson to John, Sr. and Cyrus McCormick(who invented the Reaper),
married Fifi Stillman, the divorced wife of James Stillman.

Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller, was married to Mary Todhunter Clark, the
granddaughter of the President of the Pennsylvania Railroad. They were
later divorced.

Winthrop Rockefeller married Jeanette Edris, a hotel and theater
heiress; and John (Jay) D. Rockefeller IV(one of John, Jr.'s grandsons),
the family's only Democrat(2-term Governor, and later U. S. Senator, of
West Virginia), married Sharon Percy, the daughter of Sen. Charles
Percy, who had been one of the Senate's most influential members.

All together, the Rockefeller family had been joined in marriage to the
Stillman, Dodge, McAlpin, McCormick, Carnegie, and Aldrich family
fortunes, and its wealth has been estimated to be well over $2 billion.
Some estimates even claim it to be as high as $20 billion. To compare,
John Paul Getty, Howard Hughes, and H. L. Hunt, had fortunes between
$2-$4 billion; and the Duponts and Mellons had fortunes between $3-$5

Ever since the TNEC hearings in 1937, which convened for the purpose of
finding out who was controlling the American economy, the Rockefellers
had been able to avoid any sort of accounting in regard to their vast
assets and holdings. That ended in December, 1974, when Nelson
Rockefeller was nominated to be Vice-President. Two University of
California professors, Charles Schwartz and William Domhoff, circulated
a report called "Probing the Rockefeller Fortune" which indicated that
15 employees working out of room 5600 of the RCA building had positions
on the boards of almost 100 corporations, that had total assets of $70
billion. This was denied by the family, and in an unprecedented event, a
family spokesman, J. Richardson Dilworth, appeared before the U.S. House
of Representatives' Judiciary Committee during the 1975 "Hearings into
the Nomination of Nelson Rockefeller to be Vice-President of the United
States" to document the family's wealth, which he said only amounted to
$1.3 billion.

Part of the Rockefeller's financial holdings consists of real estate,
foremost being the 4,180 acre family estate at Pocantico Hills, north of
New York City, which has 70 miles of private roads, 75 buildings, an
underground archives, and close to 500 servants, guards, gardeners and
chauffeurs. They also maintain over 100 residences in all parts of the
world. Besides investments held in personal trusts, the family holds
stock in numerous companies. Some of their major holdings: Chase
Manhattan Bank, American Telephone & Telegraph(AT & T), Eastman Kodak,
IBM, General Electric, Texas Instruments, Xerox, Minnesota Mining and
Manufacturing, Monsanto Chemical, Aluminum Co. of America(Alcoa),
Armour, Bethlehem Steel, Chrysler, DuPont, General Motors, International
Paper, Polaroid, Sears and Roebuck, Standard Oil of California(Chevron),
Standard Oil of New York(Mobil), Standard Oil of Indiana, U. S. Steel,
International Basic Economy Corp., International Harvester, Quaker Oats,
Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel, Itek, Federated Department Stores, Walgreen
Stores, Transcontinental Gas Pipeline, Consolidated Edison, Anaconda
Copper Co., General Foods, Pan American World Airways,
Colgate-Palmolive, E. I. du Pont de Nemours, W. R. Grace, Inc., Corning
Glass Works, Owens Corning Fiberglass, Cummins Engine, Hewlett-Packard,
R. R. Donnelly and Son, Dow Chemical, Teledyne, Inc., Warner-Lambert,
Westinghouse, International Telephone and Telegraph (IT & T), Motorola,
S. S. Kresge, Texaco, National Cash Register, Avon, American Home
Products, Delta Airlines, Braniff Airlines , Northwest Airlines, United
Airlines, and Burlington Industries.

The financial core of the family fortune includes the Chase Manhattan
Bank, Citicorp(which grew out of the Rockefeller-controlled First
National City Bank), the Chemical Bank of New York, First National Bank
of Chicago, Metropolitan Equitable, and New York Mutual Life Insurance.
By the 1970's, Rockefeller-controlled banks accounted for about 25% of
all assets of the 50 largest commercial banks in the country, and about
30% of all assets of the 50 largest life insurance companies.

The Chase Manhattan Bank, however, remains the supreme symbol of
Rockefeller domination. Founded in 1877 by John Thompson, the Chase
National Bank was named after Salomon P. Chase(Lincoln's Secretary of
Treasury). It was taken over by the Rockefellers in a merger with their
Equitable Trust Co., whose President was Winthrop Aldrich, son of Sen.
Nelson Aldrich. In 1955, it merged with the Bank of Manhattan(which had
been controlled by Warburg; and Kuhn, Loeb and Co), the oldest banking
operation in America(founded in 1799 by Alexander Hamilton and Aaron
Burr), which had 67 branches in New York, and $1.6 billion in assets.
Although it is only the sixth largest bank(over $98,000,000 in assets),
it is the most powerful.

In 1961, the Chase Manhattan Bank Plaza was built in downtown Manhattan,
at a cost of $125,000,000. It is 64 stories high, with five basement
floors, the lowest of which contains the largest bank vault in the

They have 28 foreign branches, and over 50,000 banking offices in more
than 50 countries, and have a controlling interest in many of the
largest corporations in America. Some of those that were listed in the
Patman Report: American National Bank and Trust, Safeway Stores,
Reynolds Metals, White Cross Stores, J. C. Penney, Northwest Airlines,
Eastern Airlines, TWA, Pan American World Airways, Western Airlines,
Consolidated Freightways, Roadway Express, Ryder, Wyandotte Chemicals,
Armstrong Rubber, A. H. Robins, G. D. Searle, Sunbeam, Beckman
Instruments, Texas Instruments, Sperry Rand, Boeing, Diebold, Cummins
Engine, Bausch and Lomb, CBS-TV, International Basic Economy Corp.,
Addressograph-Multigraph , Aetna Life, American General Insurance Co.,
Allegheny-Ludlum Steel, National Steel.

Men from the Chase Manhattan's Board of Directors have also sat on the
Boards of many of the largest corporations, which have created a system
of interlocking directorates. Some of these have been: Allegheny-Ludlum
Steel, U.S. Steel, Metropolitan Life, Travelers Insurance, Continental
Insurance, Equitable Life Assurance, General Foods, Chrysler Corp.,
Standard Oil of Indiana, New York Times, Cummins Engine, Burlington
Industries, ABC-TV, Standard Oil of New Jersey, R. J. Reynolds Tobacco,
Scott Paper, International Paper, International Basic Economy Corp.,
International Telephone & Telegraph, Goodyear Tire & Rubber, Anaconda
Copper, Allied Stores, Federated Department Stores, R. H. Macy,
Colgate-Palmolive, Bell Telephone of Pennsylvania, Consolidated Edison
of New York, DuPont, Monsanto, Borden, Shell Oil, Gulf Oil, Union Oil,
Dow Chemical, Continental Oil, Union Carbide, and S. S. Kresge.

Chase also owned or controlled the Banco del Commerce(with over 100
branches in Columbia and Peru), Banco Continental(with about 40 branches
in Peru), Banco Atlantida(with 20 branches in the Honduras),
Nederlandsche Crediet(with over 60 branches in the Netherlands), and
Standard Bank Group(with over 1,200 branches in 17 African countries).

Through a subsidiary, the Chase Investment Corp., they own a sheep and
cattle raising operation in Australia, hotels in Puerto Rico and
Liberia, a ready-mix concrete facility in Brazil, a cotton textile mill
in Nigeria, a paint factory in Venezuela, a steel mill in Turkey, a
petrochemical plant in Argentina, a bus line in the Virgin Islands, and
bowling alleys in England.

Our tax dollars, through the Export-Import Bank, International Monetary
Fund, Cooperation for Overseas Investment, and the International
Stabilization Fund, are used to give aid to other countries, some who
were communist. Millions of dollars were given to Yugoslavia, including
hundreds of jets, many of which ended up being given to Castro in Cuba.

Chase, and the Export-Import Bank financed 90% of the $2 billion loan to
build the Kama River truck complex in Russia, which was equipped with
the world's largest industrial computer system, with the capability of
producing up to 200,000 ten-ton trucks a year. A U. S. Government
official who toured the facility, reported that V-12 diesel engines were
being produced there, and said: "There is only one vehicle in Russia
that uses that type of engine, and that's a Russian battle tank."
Besides the production of trucks, they also have the capability of
producing jeeps, military transports and rocket launchers. The repayment
period for the loan was twelve years, with a 41/2 year grace period. The
loan repayment was guaranteed by the U. S. taxpayers through government
agencies like the Overseas Private Investment Corp., and the Foreign
Credit Insurance Association.

Chase Manhattan and the Bank of America lent about $36 million for the
Bechtel Corp. to build and equip an international Trade Center in
Moscow, which had been arranged by Armand Hammer of Occidental
Petroleum, a personal friend of Lenin, and son of one of the founders of
the U. S. Communist Party.

The Export-Import Bank, and other private American banks also put up all
but $40 million for a $400 million fertilizer plant in Russia.

In 1967, the International Basic Economy Corp.(with 140 subsidiaries and
affiliates), owned by all five Rockefeller Brothers, run by Richard
Aldrich(grandson of Sen. Nelson Aldrich) and Rodman Rockefeller(son of
Nelson Rockefeller, and a CFR member); and Tower International, Inc.,
headed by Cyrus S. Eaten, Jr., a Cleveland financier(who was the son of
a man who started his career as secretary to John D. Rockefeller, later
making his own fortune), joined to promote trade among the Iron Curtain
countries. In 1969 the IBEC announced that N. M. Rothschild and Sons of
London had become a partner. This partnership built a $50 million
aluminum production center in Russia, and announced a multi-million plan
for Russia and other Eastern European countries, which included the
building of large hotels in Bucharest, Sofia, Budapest, Belgrade,
Prague, and Warsaw; rubber plants, and a glass plant in Romania. In
addition, Tower International made an agreement with the Soviet patent
and licensing organiaation, Licensintorg, to promote Soviet-American
trade, which up to that time, was done by Amtorg Trading Corp., the o
ffic ial Soviet agency in America. This gave the Rockefellers and Eatens
complete control over what technology was sent to Russia.

David Rockefeller, the head of the Chase Manhattan, and the family
patriarch, controls many secondary interlocks which contribute to the
family's power and influence. Some of these have been: Firestone Tire &
Rubber Co., Honeywell, Inc., Northwest Airlines, Minnesota Mining and
Manufacturing Co., Allied Chemical Corp., General Motors, Chrysler
Corp., International Basic Economy Corp., R. H. Macy and Co., Mutual
Benefit Life Insurance Co. of New York, American Express Co., Hewlett-
Packard, Exxon, Equitable Life Assurance Society of the U.S., Federated
Department Stores, General Electric, Scott Paper, AT & T, Burlington
Industries, Wachovia Corp., R. J. Reynolds Industries, U.S. Steel Corp.,
Metropolitan Life Insurance Co., May Department Stores, Sperry Rand Cor
p., and Standard Oil of Indiana.

On July 9, 1968, the New York Times reported on a study by a House
Banking Subcommittee, headed by Rep. Wright Patman of Texas, which said:
"A few banking institutions are in a position to exercise significant
influence, and perhaps even control, over some of the largest business
enterprises in the nation." Just as the Rockefellers have these
extensive interlocking connections, other leading bankers, the other 107
directors of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks, and members of the Council on
Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, and Bilderbergers, also have
similar connections to these and hundreds of other major corporations.
Now you can see how these like-minded individuals have been able to
control American industry and business.

Though the Rockefeller Foundation is the primary foundation of the
family, there are many others operated by them, such as the Rockefeller
Family Fund, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Martha Baird Rockefeller Fund
for Music, Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial Fund, John D. Rockefeller
III Fund, Rockefeller Institute, Standard Oil(Indiana) Foundation, Esso
Education Foundation, American International Foundation for Economic and
Social Development, China Medical Board, Agricultural Development
Council, Government Affairs Foundation, Sealantic Fund(oversees
contributions to religious charities "to strengthen and develop
Protestant education" to which John Rockefeller, Jr. contributed $23
million)), Jackson Preserve, Inc., Council on Economic and Cultural
Development, and the Chase Manhattan Bank Foundation. There are some who
believe that the Rockefellers may run close to 200 trusts and

Prior to their appointments, Cyrus Vance(Secretary of State under
Carter) and Dean Rusk(Secretary of State under Kennedy), were both
Presidents of the Rockefeller Foundation.

You have seen how powerful the Rockefeller family is, now let's look at
how the Rockefeller Foundation uses its money.

Through interlocking directorates, the Foundation controls the Carnegie
Endowment, and the Ford Foundation. While the Carnegie Endowment deals
with education, as it relates to international matters; the Rockefeller
Foundation concentrates on education, as it relates to domestic issues.
It financed and influenced seven major policy-making agencies: Social
Science Research Council(who explored the means of controlling people
through scientific methods, such as mass media), Russian Institute of
Columbia University(who developed methods of conditioning Americans into
accepting a merging of the Soviet Union and America under a one-world
government), Council on Foreign Relations, National Bureau of Economic
Research(who worked closely with the Federal Reserve Board), Public
Administration Clearing House(in Chicago), Brookings Institution, and
the Institute of Pacific Relations(who was responsible for planning the
communist subversion of America).

The Rockefeller Foundation provided over $50,000 to fund the Building
America textbook series, which played up Marxism, and sought to destroy
"traditional concepts of American government." Over 100 communist
organizations contributed material, including the writings of over 50
communist writers. The California Legislature said that the books
contained "purposely distorted references favoring Communism..." The
Foundation contributed money to the pro-communist New School for Social
Research in New York City, and funded projects for the communist-staffed
Southern Christian Leadership Conference, led by Rev. Martin Luther
King, Jr. Rep. Cox said that the Rockefeller Foundation has "been used
to finance individuals and organizations whose business it has been to
get communism into private and public schools of the country, to talk
down to America, and play up Russia..." The Foundation also funded the
Kinsey Report, which heralded a new era of sexual immorality.

The purpose of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, is the "support of efforts
in the U.S. and abroad that contribute ideas, develop leaders, and
encourage institutions in the transition to global interdependence." In
1974, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund gave grants to: A.C.L.U.
Foundation($45,000); Atlantic Institute for International Affairs, in
Paris($10,000); Carnegie Endowment for International Peace($60,000);
Columbia University($9,500); Council on Foreign Relations($125,000),
Foreign Policy Association($20,000); International Institute for
Strategic Studies, in London($5000); NAACP($145,000); National Council
of Churches of Christ in the U.S.A.($10,000); National Urban
League($100,000); Trilateral Commission($50,000 ); U.N. Association of
the U.S.A., Inc.($25,000); United Negro College Fund, Inc.($10,000); and
the U.S. Conference for the World Council of Churches, Inc. ($2,500).
