Secrets Of The Elite: Why Forbes’s Rich List Doesn’t Include The Wealthiest Families On The Planet



By True Activist

As Oxfam warns that global wealth inequality is spiraling out of control, we ask why the Rothschilds and Rockefellers are missing from the business magazine’s definitive annual guide…with some startling revelations.

Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws.

This is a House of Rothschilds maxim, widely attributed to banking tycoon Mayer Amschel Rothschild in 1838 and said to be a founding principle for the highly corrupt banking and political system we have today.  Along with the Rockefellers, the Rothschild dynasty is estimated to be worth well over a trillion dollars. How are these powerful families linked to the ongoing crisis of global wealth inequality, why are so many people unaware of their existence, and why doesn’t Forbes ever mention them in their annual list of the world’s wealthiest people?

Global wealth inequality is out of control, and it’s no accident

In January 2014, Oxfam announced that the richest 85 people on the planet share a combined wealth of $110 trillion. The figure was based on Forbes’s rich list 2013, and it equates to 65 times the total wealth of the entire bottom half (3.5 billion) of the world’s population. While some deluded commentators welcomed this as “fantastic news,” the rest of us were disgusted. Winnie Byanyima, Oxfam’s executive director, said at the time: “It is staggering that in the 21st Century, half of the world’s population own no more than a tiny elite whose numbers could all fit comfortably on a double-decker bus.”

Two months later, following Oxfam’s calculation and having published the new 2014 rich list, Forbes journalist Kasia Morena did some fact-checking. She found that the number of billionaires owning the same as the poorest 3.5 billion had dropped from 85 to 67: which demonstrates an enormous widening of the global inequality gap in just one year.

Fast-forward to 2015, and another Oxfam investigation. The anti-poverty charity warned in January that if nothing is done to tackle global wealth inequality- by forcing corporations to pay their taxes and closing off-shore tax havens, for example- the richest 1% will own more than everybody else in the world combined by 2016. In a paper called Wealth: Having it all and wanting more, Oxfam outlined how the richest 1 percent have seen their share of global wealth increase from 44% in 2009 to 48% in 2014, and will likely surpass 50% in 2016. Winnie Byanyima again warned that the explosion in inequality is holding back the fight against global poverty at a time when one in nine people do not have enough to eat, and more than a billion people still live on less than $1.25 a day.

The organization also outlined how 20 percent of billionaires around the world have interests in the financial and insurance sectors, a group that saw their cash wealth increase by 11 percent in the last 12 months. Billionaires listed as having interests in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors saw their collective net worth increase by 47 percent, and the industry spent more than $500 million lobbying policy makers in Washington and Brussels in 2013 alone.

“Do we really want to live in a world where the one percent own more than the rest of us combined?” Byanyima asked. “The scale of global inequality is quite simply staggering, and despite the issues shooting up the global agenda, the gap between the richest and the rest is widening fast.”

Meet the people who own 50% (and counting) of the world’s wealth

Here is Forbes’s (real-time) list of the 66 billionaires who (officially) own half of all global assets, and will soon own more than the rest of Earth’s seven billion population combined. They range from CEOs of large corporations to oil and gas tycoons and Silicon valley entrepreneurs. The list details name, net worth, percentage change since the 2015 results, their age, industry and nationality. Bill Gates is ranked first at $469 billion, and James Simons at #66 with the $14 billion he made from hedge funds.

But where are the world’s Royal families? And more to the point, where are the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers? These two families have an unimaginable amount of wealth that surpasses the trillion mark- they are the only trillionaires in the world, and yet they are missing from Forbes’s list every single year, along with the handful of other men commonly believed to own ourpoliticians, our media, our corporations, our scientists, and even our money supply.

While the truth of the post title cannot be verified, we do know that five of the most powerful and wealthiest men in the world belong to the Rothschild and Rockefeller dynasties. How much power do they hold, and why do we hear so little of them?

The Rothschild and Rockefeller Dynasties: With great power comes great secrecy

Forbes’s rich list doesn’t include members of Royal families or dictators who hold their wealth through a position of power, or who control the riches of their country. In this way, the real people pulling the strings are able to work in absolute secrecy without any media attention at all (unless it is carefully-constructed positive propaganda, like this article on the philanthropy of the Rothschilds, of course). Forbes’s policy to exclude heads of state from the rich list explains why the Queen of England is absent, although nobody has the slightest idea of her wealth in any case: her shareholdings remain hidden behind Bank of England Nominee accounts. As the Guardian newspaper reported in May 2002: ‘The reason for the wild variations in valuations of her private wealth can be pinned on the secrecy over her portfolio of share investments…Her subjects have no way of knowing through a public register of interests where she, as their head of state, chooses to invest her money. Unlike [British politicians and Lords], the Queen does not have to annually declare her interests and as a result her subjects cannot question her or know about potential conflicts of interests…’

The same can be said for the Rothschilds and Rockerfellers, whose European forebears were richer than any Royal family at the time. The families are believed to have set up and own the Federal Reserve (G Edward Griffin’s The Creature From Jekyll Island and this research by journalist Dean Henderson are recommended reading if you want to get deeper into this topic). Could this be why the families, whose power in manipulating global affairs for the past few hundred years cannot be underestimated, are protected by Forbes’s ‘don’t even go there’ policy? Retired management consultant Gaylon Ross Sr, author of Who’s Who of the Global Elite, was apparently told in 1998 that the combined wealth of the Rockefeller family was approx $11 trillion and the Rothschilds $100 trillion…what might that figure have reached 17 years later? One can hardly begin to imagine, but maybe money isn’t the most important thing to your average trillionaire, anyway…

“The only problem with wealth is, what do you do with it?” was a rhetorical question posed by none other than John D. Rockefeller. Well, if Aaron Russo’s testimony is to be believed, all the Rockefeller riches in the world certainly won’t be used to benefit the human race…

Russo’s Rockefeller revelations: False flags, power grabs, and an enslaved population

Russo, a film-maker and activist who directed America: From Freedom to Fascism, claimed that Nick Rockefeller told him about ‘an event that would allow us to invade Afghanistan and Iraq’ some eleven months before 9/11, and foretold the fact that the ‘War on Terror’ would be a hoax wherein soldiers would be looking in caves for non-existent enemies (see video). In the interview, Russo claims that he first met lawyer Nick Rockefeller after being introduced by a mutual attorney friend. The two men hit it off, and later down the line Rockefeller apparently confided in Russo privately what his family had planned for the world: never-ending war, global population reduction, economic collapse, widespread chaos and disorder on such a scale that people would actually welcome the ultimate ‘solution’: a one-world government. He was speaking in October 2000, and most of his predictions have now come to pass- including 9/11 and the subsequent War on Terror.

Russo claimed that Rockefeller asked him to be on the Council For Foreign Relations (CFR), but the man who spent his career fighting for freedom and exposing the Fed Reserve supposedly told Rockefeller that he couldn’t possibly go along with these sinister plans for mankind. “As much as I like you Nick, I don’t believe in enslaving people. We’re on opposite sides of the fence,” Russo told Nick. To which Rockefeller apparently replied: “Why do you care about those people? Take care of your own life; do the best you can for you and your family.” Russo concludes: “There was just a lack of caring; it was just cold.”

He goes on, “I used to say what the point, Nick? You have all the money in the world, you have all the power in the world, whats the end goal?” Rockefeller is said to have responded bluntly: “To get everyone chipped.” According to this theory, the families who own the banking system are bored of their wealth, it is no longer enough. To control society itself is the ultimate end-game. According to Russo, Rockefeller told him that a global government would slowly phase out paper money from circulation, with its eventual aim being to microchip the population, turning us all into slaves of the NWO.

These are wild claims indeed, and from a journalistic point of view, they cannot be verified one way or the other. But it’s worth noting that just before Russo died in August 2007, he filmed a moving message to all Americans. In it, he talked about how vital it is for people to continue to resist national ID cards and microchips, and fight for their individual freedoms against those who would enslave us. It’s also worth pointing out that it’s not only activists like Russo and scare-mongering patriots like Alex Jones who have tried to ‘out’ the Rothschilds and Rockefellers. The problem is, all those who do so are silenced.

Ashley Mote, a member of the European Parliament serving British independence party UKIP, asked the following question in Brussels, and retribution was swift: “Mr President, I wish to draw your attention to the Global Security Fund, set up in the early 1990s under the auspices of Jacob Rothschild. This is a Brussels-based fund and it is no ordinary fund: it does not trade, it is not listed and it has a totally different purpose. It is being used for geopolitical engineering purposes, apparently under the guidance of the intelligence services. I have previously asked about the alleged involvement of the European Union’s own intelligence resources in the management of slush funds in offshore accounts, and I still await a reply. To that question I now add another: what are the European Union’s connections to the Global Security Fund and what relationship does it have with European Union institutions?”

This is exactly the kind of question the European public would like an answer to. Yet Mote did not receive one. Instead, the 79 year old politician was sacked from his own party, and later arrested and sent to jail for allegedly claiming false expenses during his time as an MEP. Mote claimed throughout his trial that he was ‘targeted for being anti-Europe’, and said the money he claimed was used to pay third-party whistleblowers in a quest to uncover corruption and fight for democracy and transparency in European politics.

Like everything else relating to the people who really run the show, the truth is out there…but it’s almost impossible to pin down.

    • i guess i must be ignorant for thinking that everyone knew about these rulers of society, the top 1%, Illuminati, or what ever you call them…its only talked about in any school, in music lyrics, and actually i don’t know where you would have to be to not hear about it.

      • One percent of 7 Billion is 70 Million which is not the population at the control apex of society.
        The more appropriate percentage is 0.00001 ( 1 exp -5 percent ) which is about 700 hundred people. They are the ones who are extracting the wealth from the global population, they are the ones who foment the wars and chaos for their exclusive benefit.
        They are a clique and among them are the owners and major share holders of ALL the major banking empires. Including all the reserve banks and the “Bank of International Settlements”
        Among them are the owners and shareholders of all the pharmaceutical corporations and the media corporations and the military supply corporations.
        These people control most governments and all the presidents in the west say and do nothing if it is not directed from this control apex.
        They all share a malevolent superiority complex and ruthless disdain for the rest of the human species. Incinerating large cities with nuclear explosions is of no consequence in their criminal existence with zero morality.

        • Conspiracy theoryies aside, The 1% as used in this article refers to the people who are in the top 1% of wealth/worth, not at all related to 1% of the population… in, take the entire amount of wealth/$$$/resources throughout the world, and pick out the people who are the top 1% of owners of said wealth/$$$/resources,and you’re left with approximately 65 people….these people own more than the poorest 50% of the earth’s population combined

    • I felt the same way. A man who makes freedom films had a conversation with Nick Rockefeller who apparently revealed his family’s plans for world domination. Now, if you were in a real position for world domination, why the hell would you go around telling anyone? Let alone a person of media? -_-

  1. Oooh BURN! You got that right Ariel! He obviously has no clue who Rothschild;s or Rockerfeller’s are and how they fit into NWO. He will crash and burn in his huge pile of ignorance, like the other sheople who don’t know, don’t know what they don’t know and don’t want to know. Back to sleep Rass…”nothing” to see here.

  2. If the richest 85 people own $110 trillion in wealth then that is an average of $1.3 trillion per person which does not seem correct. I am not sure where the $110 trillion comes from. Later in the article it said that Gates is #1 with $469 billion with a link to the Forbes list that says he has $72 billion in net worth. Am I missing something or are these numbers BS?

    • Check out Forbes “Real Time” list which reflects changes since 5pm EST last trading day. Even the Elite suffer a few headaches until the numbers roll in.

    • This is clearly a mistake. The quoted source, the Oxfam report “Working for the few”, states on page 2 that “The wealth of the one percent richest people in the world amounts to $110 trillion.” The richest 1%, not 85 individuals. The same report states: “The bottom half of the world’s population owns the same as the richest 85 people in the world.”
      Capital mistake!

  3. There is a separate financial body connected to the federal reserve, one that is supposed to safeguard the dollar in the world market. The heart of darkness is there, all the black opps financing is there. The corruption would be exposed if it were to see the light of day. It is the weakest and most corrupt link. Also the most dangerous. All names connected to this institution are the most evil of the evil. look here if you dare.

  4. The Bible says in Ezekiel 7:19 “They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumbling block of their iniquity.” I am working to make money obsolete. If everyone has a robot that can make or do most anything, there will be no need of money, wage slavery, or people like Scrooge McDuck swimming in unused wealth. You’d think such a project could attract a community to help make it so…

  5. “Bill Gates is ranked first at $469 billion, and James Simons at #66 with the $14 billion he made from hedge funds.”

    This is not what the Forbes list said. Wrong.

    Bill Gates is listed with $79.2B and James Simons is not #66 but much lower. At least get the numbers right!

    Interesting article, never-the-less.

  6. Annon works for cia. If they were true they would hack the one per. And if anon why is post req to i clude pers info. Lies

  7. The numbers are so wrong when calculated. The article is very interesting but has abrupt conclusion. Almost influences the mind of reader.

  8. no wonder there are so few jobs, as money concentrates , the number of minds working towards growth diminishes. less risk taking mavericks.
    time to reset the dynamic.

  9. By all means, please do continue to demonize the ONE MAN who stood up to these people, the ONE MAN who wanted to “do something against those in society who seemingly enjoyed endless power and exemption from law” yeah by all mean, please do continue to vilify Adolf Hitler, and continue to wonder why you’re being enslaved and exploited, while shouting “freeeeeeeedom of religion is important” while people have made enslaving other people their religion.

    Stupid fucks, i cannot even pretend to care at this point, you had a better option and chose them nonetheless.

  10. These elite leaders are sick and twisted in everyway possible, they have extreme wealth and power that you and I couldn’t even imagine and unfortunately these elite leaders are the reason for war and terror its a heartless game they play. We need to make people aware of these situations its our greatest strength agains this. Thanks

  11. The only way to beat them is to give them something to fear. I suggest we need to kill them and their entire families, wipe them out. Sounds extreme but imagine how little war there would be and just think how quickly poverty would drop. Think how much cheaper it would be to live, better healthcare better quality of life

    • That is what Pol Pot did in Cambodia. he exterminated the elite oppressors and freed the people. I met a Cambodian recently who said things are beautiful in Cambodia.
      The French also did this to Louis XVI. Remember Robespierre and Danton? France turned out pretty well. Highly educated people, high standars of living, 5 weeks vacation per year.

  12. Interesting article. One wonders, at that point, where you have like 100 billion dollars, there’s literally nothing you cannot buy and you most likely own a whole country. From there up, what’s the point? I think they care little about money itself and more about control of the world. World domination?
