David Rockefeller’s recentl death at age 101 merits universal attention. The founder of Standard Oil and at one time the world’s richest billionaire, establishment media celebrates his largess through philanthropic efforts of his family’s Rockefeller Foundation.

The Rockefeller Foundation has been a leader in social change since the early 1900s and pioneered many causes now furthered by Gates and Soros.
