Rockefeller, what a great guy! [According to the author, that is!] So what if he helped to finance Hitler's Third Reich, ending in the deaths and murders of over 16 million during World War II. So what if Rockefeller's thugs and chain gangs were responsible for the murders of countless men, women and children who just demanded decent wages. So what if Rockefeller's thugs (the Truesdale family) bombed his competitors' refineries, then other Truesdale family attorneys defended the bombers in court? Rockefeller, what a saint! Who gave America its first drive-by shootings? John D. Rockefeller and company, that's who [Ludlow Massacre]. And wasn't Rockefeller clever to create those holding companies, move his stock from Standard Oil to them, then move the ownership of those holding companies to his various foundations and trusts? What a clever, clever fellow. So today, the Rockefeller family is still majority owner of: ExxonMobil, JPMorgan Chase, AT&T, Baxter Pharmaceuticals, Intel, Apple Computer, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
