David Rockefeller Dead At 101

1Rockefeller 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.

David was the youngest of six children born to John D. Rockefeller Jr. and the grandson of Standard Oil co-founder John D. Rockefeller.

Rockefeller graduated from Harvard in 1936 and received a doctorate in economics from the University of Chicago in 1940. Appointed president of Chase Manhattan in 1961, he became chairman and CEO eight years later.

Rockefeller often spoke about the importance of American capitalism, which he said “brought more benefits to more people than any other system in any part of the world at any time in history.”

“The problem is to see that the system is run as efficiently and as honestly as it can be,” he added.

Rockefeller was married to Margaret McGrath from 1940 until her death in 1996 and the couple had six children.

    I’m not sure how to feel about this. I have extremely mixed emotions right now. From feeling like he’s lucky he had the opportunity to die peacefully in his sleep despite the atrocities he inflicted upon others to feeling a deep pity for him. I cannot imagine the terrible things that he must have witnessed and endured to have created such a person. I guess overall I feel a sense of relief. I hope this is just the beginning and a sign of better things to come for humanity. Thank you for posting this and keeping us informed, KejRaj.

    Wasn’t it reported outside mainsteam media just a few months ago that D.R. died at the hands of the White Hats and Co.? I believed that to be true and believe we are going to hear about a lot more deaths being reported to the public, months after alt media hears it because this “death” was his clone. And since, from my understanding, all cloning centers have been destroyed, they have no choice but to make it public without any options left. And clones cannot survive nearly as long as before, now that the vibrations continue to rise on Earth, especially as of today, being spring equinox.
