Billionaire Philanthropist David Rockefeller Passes Away

David Rockefeller, the billionaire businessman and philanthropist who was the last in his generation of one of the country’s most famously amd richest philanthropic families, died Monday. He was 101.



Rockefeller died in his sleep at his home in suburban Pocantico
Hills, New York, according to Newyork Times.
He was the youngest of six children born to John D. Rockefeller Jr. and the grandson of Standard Oil co-founder John D. Rockefeller.


With the passing of his siblings, he became the guardian of his family’s fortune and head of a sprawling network of family interests, both business and philanthropic, that ranged from environmental conservation to the arts.

To mark his 100th birthday in 2015, Rockefeller gave 1,000 acres of land next to a national park to the state of Maine. Aspects of the Rockefeller brothers’ upbringing became famous, including the 25-cent allowance, portions of which had to be set aside for charity and savings, and the inculcation that wealth brings great responsibility.

Two of his brothers held elected office: Nelson Rockefeller served as the governor of New York, hungered for the White House and briefly served as vice president. Winthrop Rockefeller was a governor of Arkansas.
David Rockefeller, however, wielded power and influence without ever seeking public office. Among his many accomplishments were spurring the project that led to the World Trade Center. And unlike his other brothers, John D. III and Laurance, who shied from the spotlight and were known for philanthropy, David Rockefeller embraced business and traveled and spoke widely as a champion of enlightened capitalism and never spoke personally about his worth. 

In 2015, Forbes magazine estimated his fortune at $3 billion.

Oh wow finally! After all his five heart transplants!

How did you know he is occult if? Did you initiate him? When people are successful the poor are quick to shout evil money but never try to take a risk of losing a dime.

As in. The family single handedly financed the World war Z as I love to call it.

Judgement is so sure when he meets with his creator.

When God says it's your time, no amount of heart transplants can save you.

Only 3 billion dollars?
Our politicians bury zillions of dollars in their farms and hide in tanks.

Rest in peace Rockefeller.
No offspring?

When a man gets 6 heart transplants and we sit waiting for one, something is messed up when money buys you a longer life.

An Occultic man that touched thousands of lives positively?
An Occultic man that influenced several American presidents from Eisenhower to Jimmy Carter and had major connections with the CIA?

An Occultic man that was worth $3.1B in 2016?
You are a faithful adherent of your creator's dictates, I hope you get to see his face with your judgemental, Nigerian sun burning yansh.

Let me educate your judgemental, self righteous self, hopefully you have the assimilative capability that is higher than a frog's to comprehend...

Financial success is in tandem with slurs, labels, stereotypes and insults. Me I go rather receive all the insults wey dey this world and be wealthy and influential than to be a broke, pea sized brained judgemental person who insults revered personalities on a blog.

Go read a book, Anonymous.

Btw, is it your occultism or your creator? Anumpama

Thought he'll live forever. After how many heart transplants he still died. Death is inevitable indeed. Not money or power can stop it. RIP son of Lucifer.

Illumatic? Corrupt?

You went crazy over being labelled as gay but it's alright to put a label on others?


Simpletons everywhere!

My dear, Don't mind Nigerians. Maybe that's why we are cursed with useless leaders.

Can you imagine people saying Zuckerberg did blood money when he said he will leave 99% of his wealth to charity upon his death. So people calling this man a cultist is not even news to me.

Since such philanthropy is alien to us and our nature, we are quick to label them cultists.

Somwtimes I wonder why I am from Africa. But God knows better..

Five of those hearts came from Africa America.

Rest In peace. I first heard this name on empire, when lauras brother did a song about him.

Occultist? It's obvious that some knots in brain have become loose and need to be properly tightened.
I don't know if its poverty mentality disturbing you as well or maybe its the recession in Nigeria or possibly that you are going through depression.
EWU.

Not just the Banking system in America. They control the Central Bank of The Whole World. Except for Cuba and North Korea. His family and that of Rothschild are part of the Illuminati.

This man with his family financed The Evil Hitler's experiments on Blacks and Jews. And it's deeply etched in all that is going wrong in our world today.

Surprised many don't have a clue as to who he is.
Was born a Billionaire. Funny all that Heart transplants didn't keep him alive.

The General's Wife said...

Thanks Vice and Virtue!

I read some comments and laughed.
This man? And his cohorts control the World Order.
Wait let me get home. There is this Book I want to Know if u have read. Actually a set of Books.
I read the Book and my perception of the World and its workings changed.

Beautiful Eagle said...

The General's Wife, please what's the name of the book?

The General's Wife said...

Vice and Virtue,that's not his real net worth o.
It's said his money can't be traced.
Which ofcourse makes sense.
