Former Chase Manhattan Chief Executive David Rockefeller has died at the age of 101. Rockefeller died in his sleep at home in Pocantico Hills, New York, on Monday morning as a result of congestive heart failure, according to a family spokesperson Fraser P. Seitel. The businessman, who had an estimated fortune of $3 billion, retired as head of Chase Manhattan in 1981 after a 35-year career.
In the statement from the The Rockefeller Foundation confirming his death, Rockefeller was described as “one of the most influential figures in the history of American philanthropy and finance, considered by many to be ‘America's last great international business statesman’.”
Rockefeller, also known as ‘the banker’s banker’, according to the statement, is said to have donated almost $2 billion over his lifetime to various institutions including Rockefeller University, Harvard University and art museum.

Meanwhile the rest of the global elite continue buying off 'leaders', robbing the world and fomenting wars that kill millions of innocent people.
Paul Warburg was probably the most important person at the 1913 Federal Reserve establishment meeting on Jekyll Island because of his knowledge of banking as it was practiced in Europe. He was a partner in Kuhn, Loeb & Company and was a representative of the Rothschild banking dynasty in England and France where he maintained a very close working relationships throughout his entire career with his brother, Max Warburg, who was the head of the Warburg banking consortium in Germany and the Netherlands. He was also one of the wealthiest men in the world at the time.
He also called for and attended the founding of the Council on Foreign Relations in 1921. The CFR being another tool of the global elite used to oversee US foreign policy.
Wikipedia currently suffices fine for the low down on Warburg.
Warburg died at his home in New York City on January 24, 1932, and was buried in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Sleepy Hollow, New York. At the time of his death he was chairman of the Manhattan Company and a director of the Bank of Manhattan Trust Company, Farmers Loan and Trust Company of New York, First National Bank of Boston, Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, Union Pacific Railroad, Los Angeles & Salt Lake Railroad, Western Union Telegraph Company, American I.G. Chemical Company, Agfa Ansco Corporation, and Warburg & Company of Amsterdam.

Yes, you guessed it. Its the very same I.G., as in I.G. Farben, that fueled Hitler’s war machine.
American IG owes its genesis to a German business conglomerate, namely, Interessens-Gemeinschaft Farbenindustrie AG, or IG Farben for short. The business, along with the industrial empire that “IG” controlled and commanded, has been described as “a state within a state.”
The Farben cartel was created in 1925, when Hermann Schmitz, the master organizer, with Wall Street financial assistance, created the giant chemical corporation, combining six already giant German chemical companies — Badische Anilin- und Sodafabrik Ludwigshafen (BASF), Bayer, Agfa, Hoechst, Weiler-ter-Meer, and Griesheim-Elektron. These six companies were merged into Interessen-Gemeinschaft Farbenindustrie AG or, IG Farben, for short.
In year 1928, the American holdings of IG Farben, namely, the American branches of Bayer Company, General Aniline Works, Agfa Ansco, and Winthrop Chemical Company, were organized into a Swiss holding company, which was named Internationale Gesellschaft für Chemische Unternehmungen AG or IG Chemie, in short. The controlling interest of this entity rested with IG Farben in Germany. In the following year, 1929, just a decade before the outbreak of the Second World War, these American firms merged to become American IG Chemical Corporation, or American IG, later renamed General Aniline & Film.
On the eve of World War II, IG Farben, the German chemical conglomerate, was the largest manufacturing enterprise in the world and exercised extraordinary economic and political clout in Nazi Germany. In 1936, it was the principal source for Zyklon B, the poison used in German concentration camps. From 1942-1945, the company used slave labor from Nazi concentration camps. After 1945, three members of the board of governors of American IG were tried and convicted as German war criminals. In 1952, IG Farben was split into BASF, Bayer, and Hoechst again.
So there you have it. This man led the creation of the US Federal Reserve and the Council on Foreign Relations and also was the chairman and director of American I.G., the US branch of I.G. Farben, the same I.G. Farben that supplied the gas for gas chambers and fueled the German war machine in WW2. It seems clear from this action that it wasn’t simply just Hitler who was exterminating prisoners in concentration camps. Others seem to have also had a hand in the matter, including a number of directors at large companies based in the US, Germany and Switzerland.
Quite a wicked web was woven by Paul Warburg it seems. His name seems quite fitting. Paradoxically and metaphorically speaking, he seems to have been quite the Judas.
