You’ve Heard of John D. Rockefeller, But You’ll Never Guess Where His Father is Buried – History of The Family

_DSC0787The history of the Rockefeller family began, not with Standard Oil and not with honor, but with a con man, womanizer and a thief. Various authors note that the Rockefeller “oil” beginnings were not solely from “crude oil.”  John D. Rockefeller Seniors father, William Avery Rockefeller, “Big Bill,” was a traveling salesman who advertised himself as a “William Rockefeller, the Celebrated Cancer Specialist” and who hawked “herbal remedies” and other bottled medicines.” He guaranteed “All Cases of Cancer Cured Unless They Are Too Far Gone”. Those claims allowed him to charge $25 for his magic cancer, which he retailed for $25 a bottle, a sum then equivalent to two month’s wages. The “cure” survived until quite recently as Nujol, consisting principally of petroleum and peddled as a laxative. Nujol was manufactured by a subsidiary of Standard Oil of New Jersey, called Stanco, whose only other product, manufactured on the same premises, was the famous insecticide, Flit.  [1]

“William posed as the town’s peddler that sold cheap novelties with a small board with the words “I am deaf and dumb” chalked across it, tied by a string to his shirt. Big Bill can be described as a faker that lived-off scamming from others, posing as mentally challenged” [2].

“He fled from a number of indictments for horse stealing, eventually disappearing altogether as William Rockefeller and magically re-emerging as a Dr. William Levingston of Philadelphia, a name which he retained for the rest of his life. An investigative reporter at Joseph Pulitzer’s New York World received a tip that was followed up. The World then disclosed that William Avery Rockefeller had died May 11, 1906 in Freeport, Illinois, where he was interred in an unmarked grave as Dr. William Levingston.” [3] He married Eliza Davison in 1837, and shortly thereafter brought Nancy Brown home, as a “housekeeper” who became an alternate lover and who also bore his children. [4]

“On June 28, 1849, he was indicted for raping a hired girl in Cayuga, New York; he later was found to be residing in Oswego, New York and was forced once again to decamp for parts unknown. He had no difficulty in financing his woman-chasing interests from the sale of his miraculous cancer cure and from another product, his “Wonder Working Liniment”, which he offered at only two dollars a bottle. It consisted of crude petroleum from which the lighter oils had been boiled away, leaving a heavy solution of paraffin, lube oil and tar, which comprised the “liniment”.  [5]

1 John 2:16-17 “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.”

John D. Rockefeller (1839-1937) laid claim to the title of being the “most ruthless American.” He was a war profiteer during the Civil War selling unstamped Harkness liquor to Federal troops at a high profit, gaining the initial capital to embark on his drive for monopoly in the oil business.

_DSC0789In 1870 Rockefeller, along with his associates and older brother William, incorporated his petroleum holdings into the Standard Oil Company (Ohio). Rockefeller bought out his competitors or put them out of business through tactics that included price cutting and the acquisition of such supporting enterprises as pipelines, oil terminals, and cooperage plants. By 1881, when Rockefeller formed a trust with nine directors to control Standard Oil and its affiliates, he had a near monopoly of the petroleum industry in the United States. Rockefeller was also prominent in the affairs of railroads and banks, being second only to J. P. Morgan in the domain of finance.

When the United States Steel Corporation was formed (1901), Rockefeller was one of the directors. From 1897 Rockefeller had turned his interests toward philanthropy. He funded the Baptist Church, the YMCA, and to the Anti-Saloon League, and founded (1892) and endowed theUniversity of Chicago, ultimately giving the school more than 80 million dollars. He endowed major philanthropic institutions, including the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, founded (1901) in New York City and since 1965 known as  Rockefeller University, the General Education Board (1902), organized (1902) to make gifts to various educational and research agencies; the Rockefeller Foundation (1913), established to promote public health and to further the medical, natural, and social sciences; and the Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial Foundation (1918), named for his late wife.   [6]

From the Rockefeller Foundation History 7, “… 1889 Rockefeller [made] the first of what would become $35 million in gifts, over a period of two decades, to found the University of Chicago. … In 1903 he created the General Education Board at an ultimate cost of $129 million to promote education in the United States….Rockefeller was prepared to begin the Rockefeller Foundation in 1909, even signing a deed of trust to turn over 72,569 shares of Standard Oil of New Jersey stock worth $50 million. But delays and difficulties in seeking a federal charter for the Foundation, … resulted in a lapse until 1913, when the Foundation was officially incorporated in the state of New York. Since its inception the Rockefeller Foundation has given more than $2 billion to thousands of grantees worldwide and has assisted directly in the training of nearly 13,000 Rockefeller Foundation Fellows….”

From an article about Rockefeller and UFO’s: “By the 1920s John D. Rockefeller, the founder of the Rockefeller dynasty, was funding the notorious “racial hygiene” think tank Eugenics Records Office. Its ideas of mass sterilization, the ‘inferiority’ of Black people and “breeding better humans” directly influenced Adolf Hitler and provided ‘scientific legitimacy’ for the Nazi race laws….” [8]

John Davison Rockefeller, Jr., (1874-1960) was the only son and heir of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. … After graduating from Brown University in 1897, he worked in family enterprises. In New York City he financed the Rockefeller Center …. By donating land in New York City, Rockefeller was instrumental in the decision to locate the United Nations headquarters in the United States.Riverside Church in New York City was built through his gifts. Rockefeller had one daughter, Abby (born 1903), and five sons: John D. III, Nelson, Laurance, Winthrop, and David. [9]

_DSC0790The General Education Board started by John D. Rockefeller Sr. in 1902– “In Raymond Fosdick’s memorial history of the Board, he indicates that it was part of John D. Rockefeller Jr’s effort toward “this goal of social control.” [as cited in Research ManualAmerica 2000/Goals 2000, p. 54]   The Rockefeller Foundation History also states: 1923…John D. Rockefeller, Jr., creates the International Education Board in 1923 with $20 million to promote education abroad, a parallel effort to the U.S. General Education Board.”

The RF History also adds this important information about the activities of the Rockefellers: .”..The American Council of Learned Societies, which from the beginning derived most of its support from the General Education Board and then from RF, receives the first of many additional grants to support fellowships in humanistic studies….Beginning in 1933 and extending for more than 20 years, RF expends $1.5 million in identifying and assisting 300 scientists and scholars from Nazi Germany to settle in friendly locations; many relocate to U.S. universities. 1936…Raymond B. Fosdick becomes president of RF and serves until 1948…1948…Dr. Albert C. Kinsey, professor of zoology at Indiana University, publishes Sexual Behavior in the Human Male-popularly called the “Kinsey Report.” Kinsey received his first RF support in 1946…1971…RF funds the Population Council’s newly established International Committee for Contraceptive Research to develop and test new methods of fertility control….

In 1962 Edith Roosevelt, writing about the “Universal Theocratic State” stated, “Curriculum is being drafted to indoctrinate our children in what “John D. Rockefeller Jr. calls ‘the church of all people.’…Plans are being made to set up regional World Universities whose objectives would include ‘to instruct in all religious but will not make religion it’s aim,’ ‘build a world outlook’ and teach the physiological , psychological and spiritual aspect of sex.’…On July 31, 1962 Dwight D. Eisenhower endorsed setting up a World University to provide ‘World Thinkers’ to funnel into the United Nations….Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara is a sponsor of the Temple of Understanding, the $5,000,000 “Spiritual UN’ for the six major faiths…UN official lecture at meetings of the Arcane School, the international ‘group of New World Servers’, who form ‘Triangles’ to work for UNESCO.” These were established by occultist Alice Bailey’s Lucis Trust, which was to be affiliated with the U.N. Meditation Room. [10]

UNESCO  11— The first director -general of UNESCO (1946-48) was Sir Julian Huxley, an ardent defender of Darwin’s evolution, and who wrote the 1948, “UNESCO: Its Purpose and Its Philosophy.” “The general philosophy of UNESCO should be a scientific world humanism, global in extent and evolutionary in background…its education program it can stress the ultimate need for world political unity and familiarize all peoples with the implications of the transfer of full sovereignty from separate nations to a world organization…Political unification in some sort of world government will be required…Tasks for the media division of UNESCO (will be) to promote the growth of a common outlook shared by all nations and cultures…to help the emergence of a single world culture….Even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care, and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that now is unthinkable may at least become thinkable.” 12

Expected Outcomes of UNESCO’s Partnership Policy

  • Increased support from the Business sector for UNESCO’s mission and projects
  • Reinforcement of internal mechanisms for regular exchange of information and consultation inside UNESCO
  • A Data Base on past, ongoing and envisaged alliances and the establishment of a pool of functional partners in various fields…..

James 4:4 “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”

John D. Rockefeller III (1906-78) Graduated from Princeton University in 1929 and served on the boards of several family philanthropies. Rockefeller endowed the India International Center and the Asia Society. “…philanthropic ventures, such as Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the United Negro College Fund, and the Population Council….” 16  Founded the Population Council, aka, pro-abortion council.

Jay Rockefeller (John Davison Rockefeller 4th), 1937– son of John D. Rockefeller 3d, was elected governor of West Virginia as a Democrat in 1976; reelected in 1980, he was then elected to the U.S. Senate in 1984 and reelected in 1990 and 1996. 17  Member of the Trilateral Commission and Council on Foreign Relations.

_DSC0796Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller (1908-79) … Graduated from Dartmouth College in 1930 and, after working in various branches of family business, entered public service. Rockefeller held numerous federal posts, including under secretary of state (1944), head of the International Development Advisory Board (1950-52), and under secretary of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (1953-55). He was elected governor of New York in 1958 and reelected in 1962, 1966, and 1970. Rockefeller unsuccessfully sought the Republican presidential nomination three times (1960, 1964, and 1968). In 1974 Rockefeller was sworn in as vice-president under President Gerald Ford and served until the term ended in 1977.  18  Participated in the founding of the United Nations.

While unknown to many, Robert Welch, founder of the John Birch Society, was helped by the sale of his brother’s Candy Company to Rockefeller owned National Biscuit Company, which for many would appear to be in direct opposition to the JBS goals. Robert, with some of his original candy recipes, had joined James Welch after his own candy business shut down.

In the obituary of James O. Welch, published February 1, 1985 by the New York Times, it was stated:

“…He founded his candy company in 1927 in Cambridge, Mass. Over the years the company produced such popular brands as Junior Mints and Milk Duds.In 1963 the National Biscuit Company, now Nabisco Brands Inc., bought Mr. Welch’s company. Mr. Welch was a director of Nabisco from 1963 until his retirement in 1978. His son, James O. Welch Jr., of Short Hills, N.J., is president of Nabisco.

…An older brother, Robert H. W. Welch Jr., founder of the John Birch Society, died Jan. 6. “ [James O_ Welch Dies at 79; Founder of Candy Company – New York Times]

From another source:

“…. To enable Robert Welch, a 32nd degree Mason, to devote all of his time to the John Birch Society, Nelson Rockefeller purchased his family firm, the Welch Candy Company, from him at a most handsome price. Welch chose the principal officers of the John Birch Society from his acquaintances at the Council on Foreign Relations…” 19

In the article My ‘One-Minute’ Membership In the John Birch Society, the following information, concerning the buyout of the Welch Candy Company is related:

“…. In the August 1965 edition of Capsule News, Morris Bealle (now deceased) laid it bare. He wrote:

Robert Welch (and his brother Jimmy) received a tremendous payoff from the House of Rockefeller two years ago, for organizing the John Birch Society and sitting on the communist lid for the past seven years. The total pay-off was $10,800,000, less the value of the family candy company, which is reputed to be maybe $100,000 or $200,000.

On October 1, 1963, Rockefeller’s National Biscuit Company announced the “purchase” of the James O. Welch Candy Company of Cambridge, Massachusetts.

In Moody’s Manual of Industrials, and in Standard-and-Poor’s Business Index, NBC gave the alleged purchase price as “200,000 shares of National Biscuit common stock.” According to The Wall Street Journal for Oct. 1, 1963, NBC common stock was selling for $54 a share on the New York Stock Exchange.

Today it is selling for $58. Thus the Welch brothers were given $10,800,000 just like that.”

Candy people say the whole family business, with plants and five sales offices, [was] hardly worth $200,000. Welch will tell those dopes who will believe him mat National Biscuit is not a Rockefeller concern.

Again, Moody’s Manual will trip him up. It lists as two of the directors the names of Roy E. Tomlinson and Don. G. Mitchell. [Both are] members of the Council on Foreign Relations. Further, they are a pair of Rockefeller’s “professional directors.” Tomlinson is also a director of their Prudential Life and American Sugar Refining.

It was American Sugar that was directly concerned with the financing and embargoing into the hands of Communist Russia of Cuba in 1959. They made the deal with Castro, which ended freedom on the island of Cuba and made possible those Havana missile bases designed to wipe out American eastern seaboard cities.

It also appears that the Rock Mob financed and promoted the organization of the John Birch Society. How else could it have gotten millions of dollars worth of newspaper publicity by the phony “attacks” on Welch that came with dramatic suddenness.

And, for the record, in more recent years, famed populist historian Eustace Mullins, author of The Federal Reserve Conspiracy, The World Order and other classics, has said publicly-more than once-that his research led him to the conclusion that the Birch Society was indeed a creation of the Rockefeller empire, based on precisely the same data that led Bealle to reach his assessment. So Bealle was not standing alone, by any means, in making these allegations…” end quote []

In 1962 , Nelson wrote, “The Future of Federalism” which claims that current events demand a “new world order.” He stated that there is: “A fever of nationalism…but the nation-state is becoming less and less competent to perform its international political tasks…These are some of the reasons pressing us to lead vigorously toward the true building of a new world order…Sooner perhaps than we may realize…there will evolve the bases for a federal structure of the free world.”

Nelson developed the CIAA, which was his own version of the CIA, and which had intelligence oversight of the South American continent. He used what ever political and social networks that were available to achieve his goals, using the intelligence community to advantage. His lust for wealth propelled him to desire control over every aspect of the continent. He planned major highways spanning the Amazon jungle, building dams, lakes, ranches, incorporating drilling and mining and reaping what belonged to the Native population. With Nelson’s endorsement, the governments of South America were manipulated and managed extensively by the CIA, to benefit not only Rockefeller, but the US desire for global wealth and control against “communism.” [Thy Will Be Done] His ventures have impacted not only the native peoples but devastated the environment, which comes in sharp contrast to his brothers Laurence’s and David’s environmental ventures, which supposedly are to protect the environment.

Laurance Spelman Rockefeller (born 1910) … After graduating from Princeton University in 1932, he worked in business and participated in the founding of Eastern Airlines. … He served on the boards of the American Conservation Association and the Citizens Advisory Committee on Environmental Quality.  20 He provided seed money for companies such as Intel Corporation and Apple Computers. He establishment conservation organizations such as The Conservation Foundation and American Conservation Association, Inc. and participated on the boards of the National Geographic Society, National Recreation and Parks Association, regional conservation societies, New York Zoological Society, and others.

Laurence controls the stock of Readers Digest, which, “…By 1980, two-thirds of Reader’s Digest stock was transferred to seven charities controlled by Laurence. The Fund for the Hudson Highlands received 475,000 shares of stock, vastly undervalued at $30 per share at the time….The Rockefeller charities profited. The gift of 588,424 shares to the Metropolitan Museum of Art “would come to be worth a vast fortune …the greatest gift ever given… to any cultural institution in the world,…In January1990, Hudson Highlands received $51,693,290 from the sale of Reader’s Digest stock, and in May 1991 $48,128,000. With their $322,822,000 worth of remaining Reader’s Digest holdings, their total wealth from Lila and DeWitt Wallace, according to Canning, amounts to $422,000,000.” 21 David Rockefeller is chairman of the Metropolitan Museum of Art

“…. By the late 1960s [Laurence] he moved closer to an environmentalist position. He was one of the most influential individuals in America to make that journey, from conservation to a muted environmentalism. He had the capacity to put his money into that journey, to educate teachers, politicians, and policy analysts. … LSR was, by the 1990s, willing to at least consider the possibility of life in outer space, to consider the efficacy of holistic and alternative medicines, to consider the implications of biocentrism, to consider a trajectory … away from business and organized religion entirely. As he remarked, he remained open to influence….In turn, LSR was an influence himself: on the international as well as national park movement, on outdoor recreation, national beautification, historical preservation, and on what constitutes the public good. Through his interventions and his generally well-placed insertions of seed money he reshaped the hotel industry, promoted better zoos and more extensive greenways, and raised expectations and performance on the part of travelers, conservationists, and environmentalists…”22

His wife, Mary French Rockefeller, worked for years on behalf of the YWCA. She joined the YWCA’s national board in 1951 and served until she became a member of its Board of Trustees in 1988. 23  She was also a trustee of Spelman College and the Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

Dr. Harold Ockenga helped found Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary 24 in 1969 and was President of it and Gordon College from 1969-1985. “The Conwell School of Theology and Gordon Divinity School merged in 1969 through the efforts of philanthropist J. Howard Pew, Dr. Harold J. Ockenga and Dr. Billy Graham…Dr. Ockenga, the long-time pastor of Boston’s historic Park Street Church, became the new institution’s first president. Dr. Ockenga retired in 1979 but maintained an active emeritus relationship with the school and served as member of the Board of Trustees until his death in 1985″

Dr. Billy Graham is Chairman Emeritus of the Board of Trustees. Harold Ockenga was a co-founder of Fuller Theological Seminary, who, along with J. Edwin Orr, was also Co-Founder of the National Association of Evangelicals in 1942.  He served as President of both the National Association of Evangelicals and the World Evangelical Fellowship, which are merely the national and world organizations of the same thing.

The CIA’s mind control experiments under the Human Ecology Fund were replaced by groups such as the Human Potential Foundation funded by Laurence Rockefeller. Laurence also funds UFO research. In 1999 the New York Daily News ran a report about Laurence’s UFO funding. “Michael Luckman, director of the New York Center for UFO Research, says the Rockefeller report entitled ‘The Best Available Evidence,’ “features testimony from former military officials and astronauts that contradicts Air Force denials of an alien landing.” 25

Laurence has funded “Dr. John Mack, the Harvard psychiatrist famous for his book on so-called ‘alien abductions’.”

“Greens and Greys [Linking Alien Presence to Environmentalism] “… intelligences of the highest power are absolutely appalled that this one species is so out of control, so insensitive to the living ecosystem of the earth…” — Dr. John Mack, Harvard Psychiatrist….Mack’s bridge between UFOs and ecology is evident in a recent book of articles compiled by the Sierra Club. Entitled Ecopsychology, Mack asks: “How do we invent a new psychology of our relationship to the earth?”

Critics accuse Mack of founding a new religion in the “green politics” of the aliens. His response that he “cannot help it if this is the communication coming through,”….Laurence Rockefeller also funds the Green Earth Foundation headed by Terence McKenna. McKenna scouts the globe collecting psychoactive plants, which he is permitted to cultivate in Hawaii. One of McKenna’s theories is that psychoactive substances used by native cultures in religious ceremonies induce telepathic links with alien cultures. He believes the patriarchal “dominator” cultures of the past few thousand years have failed us and the earth, and calls for an “archaic revival”, which requires a return to humanity’s last “sane” moment 15,000 years ago on the plains of Africa “rocked in the cradle of the great horned mushroom goddess.”

Human Potential Foundation [Global Mind – Change Potential] The Human Potential Foundation (HPF), founded by U.S. Senator Claiborne Pell and based in Falls Church, Virginia, is another project funded primarily by Laurence Rockefeller.

According to Dick Farley, who worked for the organisation for about three years, Rockefeller’s interest in HPF seemed to be the promotion of “alternative religious and psychiatric/psychological paradigms, including so-called ‘UFOs’ and ‘abductions,’ having ‘Global Mind Change’ potentials. Rockefeller put more than $700,000 through the ‘HPF’ from 1991 to 1994, as Common Cause Magazine recently reported.” 26

The Complementary & Alternative Medicine Program At Stanford (CAMPS) 27 program at Stanford sports a ying/yang symbol. It’s database project is worth noting.

CAMPS Database Project: CAMPS in conjunction with, Inc. will launch a subscription-only database that will house citations, abstracts and articles that were donated in 1997 by Esalen Institute co-founder Michael Murphy and Laurence Rockefeller….” 28

The Rockefellers supported Esalen and it’s “Esalen Soviet-American Exchange Program.” Esalen is involved in paraspychology, self-actualization, self-hypnosis, with similar techniques of manipulation and mind-control as Tavistock. Esalen’s activities include psychological manipulation to solve political problems. 29

David Rockefeller (born 1915) Graduated from Harvard University in 1936 and did graduate work in economics at Harvard, the London School of Economics, and the University of Chicago. In 1946 he joined the staff of Chase National Bank (later Chase Manhattan Bank), serving as chairman of the board from 1969 to 1981 and as chief executive officer (1969-80).  31

Mr. Rockefeller serves as Honorary Chairman of the Americas Society, the Council on Foreign Relations and Rockefeller University. He is also Chairman of the Rockefeller University Council, and Chairman Emeritus of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. A graduate of Harvard University and the University of Chicago (Ph.D., 1940), Mr. Rockefeller served as an officer of the Chase Manhattan Bank from 1946 to 1981. He was Chairman and Chief Executive Officer from 1969 until 1980, and continued as Chairman until his retirement in 1981. Since that date he has been Chairman of the bank’s International Advisory Committee. Mr. Rockefeller has also been involved in numerous other business, cultural and educational organizations…”

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), incorporated on July 29, 1921, is the American counterpart to Britain’s Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA). David has been a director from 1949-85, chairman of the board 1970-85, vice president 1950-70.  The Rockefeller Group is a corporate member.

The Trilateral Commission was founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller with Zbigniew Brzezinski as executive director, after Brzezinski published Between Two Ages, which became the blueprint for the TC. David read and appreciated his ideas, which included,

“Though Stalinism may have been a needless tragedy for both the Russian people and communism as an ideal, there is the intellectually tantalizing possibility that for the world at large it was, as we shall see, a blessing in disguise.”“Marxism represents a further vital and creative stage in the maturing of man’s universal vision. Marxism is simultaneously a victory of the external man over the inner, passive man and a victory of reason over belief.”

“Such a society would be dominated by an elite whose claim to political power would rest on allegedly superior scientific know-how. Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by the latest modern techniques for influencing public behavior and keeping society under close surveillance and control.”

“The Soviet Union could have emerged as the standard-bearer of this century’s most influential system of thought and as the social model for resolving the key dilemmas facing modern man.” 33

1973 founding members of the Trilateral Commission also included Jimmy Carter, who chose Zbigniew Brzezinski as his National Security Adviser during his presidency. Brzezinski, also a member of the CFR, wrote in his Power & Principle: Memoirs of the National Security Advisor, 1977-1981, on page 49, “The new President’s specific views on foreign affairs–going beyond his desire for a foreign policy governed by humane and moral concerns–had been formed during his time with the Trilateral Commission. Contrary to the myth, the Trilateral Commission is not a conspiracy designed to dominate the world but genuinely strives to engage Americans, Western Europeans and Japanese in a common endeavor to shape a more cooperative world…”

On page 289, he wrote,  ‘”Moreover, all the key foreign policy decision-makers of the Carter Administration had previously served in the Trilateral Commission….”

Zbigniew Brzezinski is a CSIS Trustee and Trustee Counselor, Center for Strategic and International Studies; and Professor of American Foreign Policy at the School of Advanced International Studies, the Johns Hopkins University, Washington, D.C.

On Aug. 10, 1973, David Rockefeller wrote an article for the “New York Times” in which he described a recent visit to Red China: “Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community purpose.” 37

Speaking at the Sept. 23, 1994 United Nations Ambassadors’ dinner, David Rockefeller remarked,

 “This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long.” “We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.” 38

David founded the Council of the Americas 39 in 1965 with, “… like-minded business people founded the Council of the Americas based on the fundamental belief that free markets and private enterprise offer the most effective means to achieve regional economic growth and prosperity. Since that time, membership has grown to over 200 blue chip companies that represent the majority to the U.S. private investment in Latin America.”

David Rockefeller was the connection and influence to the Earth Charter and Maurice Strong of Canada. In 1972 Strong was Secretary General of the first Earth Summit in Stockholm. This led to the creation of the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) 40 in 1972. Strong was UNEP’s first Exec. Director. At the same time Strong served as the Director of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).41 The IUCN was accredited by the UN in 1946 to become its “scientific advisor” and was made up of various government scientists. Within the IUCN, the EPA, USFWS (who administers The US Endangered Species Act), Nat. Park Service, US Forest Service, and Nat. Ocean and Atmosphere Adm. huddle behind closed doors with the Sierra Club, National Audubon, National Wildlife Federation, Nature Conservancy, Natural Resources Defense Council, Environ. Defense Fund, etc. to plan and implement this global agenda and the new global ethics from above and below. The IUCN wrote the Convention on Biodiversity 42 and created the pantheistic pseudoscience called “conservation biology” to “prove” earth’s ecosystems were being mortally wounded by human use. The IUCN also founded the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) and the World Resources Institute (WRI) which pass the banner back and fourth in developing and promoting treaties and agreements … ” 43

Rockefeller Liberalism

2 Corinthians 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

Although reportedly coming from Baptist roots, the Rockefellers were liberal in their theology, and were sympathetic to “higher criticism” of the Bible, replacing faith with an acceptance of modern sciences versions and interpretation of history, creation and so on. As seen by their grants to all manner of ecumenicalism and occultism, saying one is “Christian” does not mean one is.Being Baptist was and is not an indicator one is a “Christian” by any way, shape or means.

For example, The American Baptist Publication Society, in 1919 published “The New World Order” by Samuel Zane Batten.

In it, Batten declares, “…the new world rises upon our vision….We have vindicated the right of social control….There must be developed a national spirit of service….The natural resources of the nation must be socialized…The state must socialize every group…Men must learn to have world patriotism. World patriotism must be a faith….There is no more justice for the claim of absolute sovereignty on the part of a nation than on the part of an individual….The only alternative is World Federation…with a world parliament, an international court, and an international policy force…Men must have an international mind before there can be a world federation. They must see and affirm that above the nation is humanity. Internationalism must first be a religion before it can be a reality and a system.” 46 

An avid supporter of the Northern Baptist Convention and missions, liberal theology changed the acceptance of [John D. Rockefeller] Juniors funding by some. Many, however, chose to move into liberal and “modernist” theology, including those the Rockefellers entrusted their investments and philanthropies to. According to Colby and Dennett, originally ‘fundamentalist’  they were replaced by liberals, such as “lawyer Raymond Fosdick and his brother Rev. Harry Emerson Fosdick, the liberal theologian.” Raymond Fosdick was President of the Rockefeller Foundation from 1936-1948.

John D. Rockefeller Jr. provided the funds for the building of New York’s Riverside Church  47, considered one of the ten largest churches in the World. The Rev. Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick, was Senior pastor from 1930 – 1946. Their information states:

” We are an interdenominational, interracial, & international congregation.” “The Riverside Church seeks to be a community of faith. Its members are united in the worship of God known in Jesus, the Christ, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. The mission of The Riverside Church is to serve God through word and witness; to treat all human beings as sisters and brothers; and to foster responsible stewardship of all God’s creation.
The Riverside Church commits itself to welcoming all persons, celebrating the diversity found in a congregation broadly inclusive of persons from different backgrounds of race, economic class, religion, culture, ethnicity, gender, age, and sexual orientation. Members are called to an individual and collective quality of life that leads to personal, spiritual, and social transformation, witnessing to God’s saving purposes for all creation.

Therefore, The Riverside Church pledges itself to education, reflection, and action for peace and justice, the realization of the vision of the heavenly banquet where all are loved and blessed.

The church is interdenominational. It is affiliated with both the United Church of Christ and the American Baptist Churches and cooperates with the Council of Churches in the City of New York as well as the New York State, National, and World Councils of Churches.

The Temple of Understanding is based in the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, which is the Episcopal “mother” church.

“The Temple of Understanding collaborated with the Global Commission of Parliamentarian Leaders in 1985 and gave birth to the Global Forum.” 77

“…New Age organizations behind the Global Forum just happen to be the Temple of Understanding, which is closely tied to the United Nations and is housed at Madeleine L’Engle’s church, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine…The Temple’s purpose…is to facilitate the one world religion, through the promoting both the acceptance and the embrace of all religions, beliefs and rituals.”  78

“According to the Temple of Understanding’s own literature, it is the world’s second oldest international interfaith organization, just behind the World Congress of Faith’s, founded in England in 1935…The Temple began through the efforts of …”Founding Friends,” including world leaders Eleano r Roosevelt, Albert Schweitzer, Thomas Merton, the Dalai Lama, U Thant, Pope John XXIII, Pope Paul VI…” 79

“The “Friends” assisted the founder, Juliet Hollister…in establishing a world interfaith center based in the U.S. Additional sponsors have included John D. Rockefeller II, Margaret Sanger… International Planned Parenthood…Bishop James A. Pike…the Society of Friends (Quakers), the Jewish Theological Seminary, the Unitarian Fellowship…” 80

“In October of 1988, the Temple of Understanding…held a “North America Assisi,” in Wichita, Kansas…Faith delegates represented Jains, American Indians, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Shintoism, Bahaism, Unitarian Universalism, Sikh and Zorastrianism. Some spanned more than one faith, such as John L. Jory, a Quaker…who is also a practicing Buddhist.”  81  [See: Renovaré & The Christian Mystic ]

The Rockefeller Foundation 49  has given to Rand, Stanford University and the ecumenical and New Age World Conference on Religion and Peace and many more.

They also funded the League for Industrial Democracy, whose directors include such staunch “anti-Communists” as Jeane Kirkpatrick and Sidney Hook.” Previous to 1921, the League for Industrial Democracy was named the Intercollegiate Socialist Society 50, it’s goals to advance the ideas of Marxism. Intercollegiate Socialist Society, was organized by Upton Sinclair, Jack London and also Clarence Darrow, John Dewey and others. It’s permanent headquarters was at the Rand School of Social Science in 1908, and whose 1935 president was John Dewey. See: CNP’s Alan P. Dye and Alan Keyes .
