Owns the World?  https://www.bitchute.com/video/2tFstBs61PE5/

Mercola – <https://www.mercola.com/>Mercola.com – 
October 30, 

Until recently, it appeared economic competition 
had been driving the rise and fall of small and 
large companies across the U.S. Supposedly, 
PepsiCo is Coca Cola’s competitor, Apple and 
Android vie for your loyalty and drug companies 
battle for your health care dollars. However, all 
of that turns out to be an illusion.

Since the mid-1970s, two corporations ­ Vanguard 
and Blackrock ­ have gobbled up most companies in 
the world, effectively destroying the competitive 
market on which America’s strength has rested, 
leaving only false appearances behind.

Indeed, the global economy may be the greatest 
illusionary trick ever pulled over the eyes of 
people around the world. To understand what’s 
really going on, watch Tim Gielen’s hour-long 
documentary, “MONOPOLY: Who Owns the World?” above.

Corporate Domination

As noted by Gielen, who narrates the film, a 
handful of mega corporations ­ private investment 
companies ­ dominate every aspect of our lives; 
everything we eat, drink, wear or use in one way 
or another. These investment firms are so 
enormous, they control the money flow worldwide. So, how does this scheme work?

While there appear to be hundreds of competing 
brands on the market, like Russian nesting dolls, 
larger parent companies own multiple smaller 
brands. In reality, all packaged food brands, for 
example, are owned by a dozen or so larger parent companies.

Pepsi Co. owns a long list of food, beverage and 
snack brands, as does Coca-Cola, Nestle, General 
Mills, Kellogg’s, Unilever, Mars, Kraft Heinz, 
Mondelez, Danone and Associated British Foods. 
Together, these parent companies monopolize the 
packaged food industry, as virtually every food 
brand available belongs to one of them.

These companies are publicly traded and are run 
by boards, where the largest shareholders have 
power over the decision making. This is where it 
gets interesting, because when you look up who 
the largest shareholders are, you find yet another monopoly.

While the topmost shareholders can change from 
time to time, based on shares bought and sold, 
two companies are consistently listed among the 
top institutional holders of these parent 
companies: The Vanguard Group Inc. and Blackrock Inc.

Pepsi and Coca-Cola ­ An Example

For example, while there are more than 3,000 
shareholders in Pepsi Co., Vanguard and 
Blackrock’s holdings account for nearly one-third 
of all shares. Of the top 10 shareholders in 
Pepsi Co., the top three, Vanguard, Blackrock and 
State Street Corporation, own more shares than the remaining seven.

Now, let’s look at Coca-Cola Co., Pepsi’s top 
competitor. Who owns Coke? As with Pepsi, the 
majority of the company shares are held by 
institutional investors, which number 3,155 (as 
of the making of the documentary).

As shown in the film, three of the top four 
institutional shareholders of Coca-Cola are 
identical with that of Pepsi: Vanguard, Blackrock 
and State Street Corporation. The No. 1 
shareholder of Coca-Cola is Berkshire Hathaway Inc.

These four ­ Vanguard, Blackrock, State Street 
and Berkshire Hathaway ­ are the four largest 
investment firms on the planet. “So, Pepsi and 
Coca-Cola are anything but competitors,” Gielen 
says. And the same goes for the other packaged 
food companies. All are owned by the same small 
group of institutional shareholders.

Big Tech Monopoly

The monopoly of these investment firms isn’t 
relegated to the packaged food industry. You find 
them dominating virtually all other industries as 
well. Take Big Tech, for example. Among the top 
10 largest tech companies we find Apple, Samsung, 
Alphabet (parent company of Google), Microsoft, Huawei, Dell, IBM and Sony.

Here, we find the same Russian nesting doll 
setup. For example, Facebook owns Whatsapp and 
Instagram. Alphabet owns Google and all 
Google-related businesses, including YouTube and 
Gmail. It’s also the biggest developer of 
Android, the main competitor to Apple. Microsoft 
owns Windows and Xbox. In all, four parent 
companies produce the software used by virtually 
all computers, tablets and smartphones in the 
world. Who, then, owns them? Here’s a sampling:
    * Facebook ­ More than 80% of Facebook shares 
are held by institutional investors, and the top 
institutional holders are the same as those found 
in the food industry: Vanguard and Blackrock 
being the top two, as of the end of March 2021. 
State Street Corporation is the fifth biggest shareholder
    * Apple ­ The top four institutional 
investors are Vanguard, Blackrock, Berkshire 
Hathaway and State Street Corporation
    * Microsoft ­ The top three institutional 
shareholders are Vanguard, Blackrock and State Street Corporation

You can continue going through the list of tech 
brands ­ companies that build computers, smart 
phones, electronics and household appliances ­ 
and you’ll repeatedly find Vanguard, Blackrock, 
Berkshire Hathaway and State Street Corporation among the top shareholders.

Same Small Group Owns Everything Else Too

The same ownership trend exists in all other 
industries. Gielen offers yet another example to 
prove this statement is not an exaggeration:

“Let’s say we want to plan a vacation. On our 
computer or smart phone, we look for a cheap 
flight to the sun through websites like 
Skyscanner and Expedia, both of which are owned 
by the same group of institutional investors 
[Vanguard, Blackrock and State Street Corporation].

We fly with one of the many airlines [American 
Airlines, Air France, KLM, United Airlines, Delta 
and Transavia] of which the majority of the 
shares are often owned by the same investors 

The airline we fly [on] is in most cases a Boeing 
or an Airbus. Again, we see the same 
[institutional shareholders]. We look for a hotel 
or an apartment through Bookings.com or 
AirBnB.com. Once we arrive at our destination, we 
go out to dinner and we write a review on Trip 
Advisor. The same investors are at the basis of every aspect of our journey.

And their power goes even much further, because 
even the kerosene that fuels the plane comes from 
one of their many oil companies and refineries. 
Just like the steel that the plane is made of 
comes from one of their many mining companies.

This small club of investment companies, banks 
and mutual funds, are also the largest 
shareholders in the primary industries, where our raw materials come from.”

The same goes for the agricultural industry that 
the global food industry depends on, and any 
other major industry. These institutional 
investors own Bayer, the world’s largest seed 
producer; they own the largest textile 
manufacturers and many of the largest clothing companies.

They own the oil refineries, the largest solar 
panel producers and the automobile, aircraft and 
arms industries. They own all the major tobacco 
companies, and all the major drug companies and 
scientific institutes too. They also own the big 
department stores and the online marketplaces like eBay, Amazon and AliExpress.

They even own the payment methods we use, from 
credit card companies to digital payment 
platforms, as well as insurance companies, banks, 
construction companies, telephone companies, 
restaurant chains, personal care brands and cosmetic brands.

No matter what industry you look at, the top 
shareholders, and therefore decision makers, are 
the same: Vanguard, Blackrock, State Street 
and/or Berkshire Hathaway. In virtually every 
major company, you find these names among the top 10 institutional investors.

Who Owns the Investment Firms of the World?

Diving deeper, we find that these major 
investment firms are in turn owned by their own 
set of shareholders. One of the most amazing 
things about this scheme is that the 
institutional investors ­ and there are many more 
than the primary four we’ve focused on here ­ 
also own each other. They’re all shareholders in each other’s companies.
At the top of the pyramid ­ the largest Russian 
doll of all ­ we find Vanguard and Blackrock. 
“Together, they form an immense network that we 
can compare to a pyramid,” Gielen says. Smaller 
institutional investors, such as Citibank, ING 
and T. Rowe Price, are owned by larger investment 
firms such as Northern Trust, Capital Group, 3G 
Capital and KKR. Those investors in turn are 
owned by even larger investment firms, like 
Goldman Sachs and Wellington Market, which are 
owned by larger firms yet, such as Berkshire 
Hathaway and State Street. At the top of the 
pyramid ­ the largest Russian doll of all ­ we find Vanguard and Blackrock.

“The power of these two companies is something we 
can barely imagine,” Gielen says. “Not only are 
they the largest institutional investors of every 
major company on earth, they also own the other 
institutional investors of those companies, giving them a complete monopoly.”

Gielen cites data from Bloomberg, showing that by 
2028, Vanguard and BlackRock are expected to 
collectively manage $20 trillion-worth of 
investments. In the process, they will own almost everything on planet Earth.

BlackRock ­ The Fourth Branch of Government

Bloomberg has also referred to BlackRock as the 
“fourth branch of government,” due to its close 
relationship with the central banks. BlackRock 
actually lends money to the central bank, the 
federal reserve, and is their principal adviser.

Dozens of BlackRock employees have held senior 
positions in the White House under the Bush, 
Obama and Biden administrations. BlackRock also 
developed the computer system that the central banks use.

Who Owns BlackRock?

While Larry Fink is the figurehead of BlackRock, 
being its founder, chairman and chief executive 
officer, he’s not the sole decision maker, as 
BlackRock too is owned by shareholders. Here we 
find yet another curiosity, as the largest 
shareholder of BlackRock is Vanguard.

“This is where it gets dark,” Gielen says. 
Vanguard has a unique structure that blocks us 
from seeing who the actual shareholders are. “The 
elite who own Vanguard don’t want anyone to know 
they are the owners of the most powerful company 
on earth.” Still, if you dig deep enough, you can 
find clues as to who these owners are.

The owners of the wealthiest, most powerful 
company on Earth can be expected to be among the 
wealthiest individuals on earth. In 2016, Oxfam 
reported that the combined wealth of the richest 
1% in the world was equal to the wealth of the 
remaining 99%. In 2018, it was reported that the 
world’s richest people get 82% of all the money 
earned around the world in 2017.

In reality, we can assume that the owners of 
Vanguard are among the 0.001% richest people on 
the planet. According to Forbes, there were 2,075 
billionaires in the world as of March 2020. 
Gielen cites Oxfam data showing that two-thirds 
of billionaires obtained their fortunes via 
inheritance, monopoly and/or cronyism.

“This means that Vanguard is in the hands of the 
richest families on earth,” Gielen says. Among 
them we find the Rothschilds, the DuPont family, 
the Rockefellers, the Bush family and the Morgan family, just to name a few.

Many belong to royal bloodlines and are the 
founders of our central banking system, the 
United Nations and just about every industry on 
the planet. Gielen goes even further in his 
documentary, so I highly recommend watching it in 
its entirety. I’ve only summarized a small piece of the whole film here.

A Financial Coup D’etat

Speaking of the central bankers, I recently 
interviewed finance guru Catherine Austin Fitts, 
and she believes it’s the central bankers that 
are at the heart of the global takeover we’re 
currently seeing. She also believes they are the 
ones pressuring private companies to implement 
the clearly illegal COVID jab mandates. Their 
control is so great, few companies have the 
ability to take a stand against them.

“I think [the central bankers] are really 
depending on the smart grid and creepy technology 
to help them go to the last steps of financial 
control, which is what I think they’re pushing for,” she said.

“What we’ve seen is a tremendous effort to 
bankrupt the population and the governments so 
that it’s much easier for the central bankers to 
take control. That’s what I’ve been writing about 
since 1998, that this is a financial coup d’etat.

Now the financial coup d’etat is being 
consolidated, where the central bankers just 
serve jurisdiction over the treasury and the tax 
money. And if they can get the [vaccine] 
passports in with the CBDC [central bank digital 
currency], then it will be able to take taxes out 
of our accounts and take our assets. So, this is a real coup d’etat.”

The Spartacus Letter

Again, I urge you to watch the documentary at the 
top of this article, and keep an eye out for my 
interview with Austin Fitts, which will be 
published in the near future. In closing, I want 
to highlight a mysterious letter posted by an 
anonymous individual who goes by the name “Spartacus.”

“COVID-19 ­ The Spartacus Letter” was originally 
posted on docdroid.net, but has since been 
deleted. Another copy can be found on mega.nz.1 
The Automatic Earth2 and ZeroHedge3 have also 
published the letter in full. The letter starts 
out saying, “My name is Spartacus, and I’ve had enough”:

“We are watching the medical establishment inject 
literal poison into millions of our fellow 
Americans without so much as a fight. We have 
been told that we will be fired and denied our 
livelihoods if we refuse to vaccinate. This was the last straw.”

What follows is a compilation of data showing the 
COVID pandemic was a biowarfare attack that has 
been kept going using sophisticated psychological 
warfare tactics. It also reviews the dangers of 
the COVID shots, noting that the virus and the 
“vaccines” were made by the same entities.

A summary of Spartacus’ findings is as follows. 
Each summary point is elaborated upon in later 
sections of the letter, which you can read in any 
of the three references provided.
    * COVID-19 is a blood and blood vessel 
disease. SARS-CoV-2 infects the lining of human 
blood vessels, causing them to leak into the lungs.
    * Current treatment protocols (e.g. invasive 
ventilation) are actively harmful to patients, 
accelerating oxidative stress and causing severe 
VILI (ventilator-induced lung injuries). The 
continued use of ventilators in the absence of 
any proven medical benefit constitutes mass murder.
    * Existing countermeasures are inadequate to 
slow the spread of what is an aerosolized and 
potentially wastewater-borne virus, and constitute a form of medical theater.
    * Various non-vaccine interventions have been 
suppressed by both the media and the medical 
establishment in favor of vaccines and expensive patented drugs.
    * The authorities have denied the usefulness 
of natural immunity against COVID-19, despite the 
fact that natural immunity confers protection 
against all of the virus’s proteins, and not just one.
    * Vaccines will do more harm than good. The 
antigen that these vaccines are based on, 
SARS-CoV-2 Spike, is a toxic protein. SARS-CoV-2 
may have ADE, or antibody-dependent enhancement; 
current antibodies may not neutralize future 
strains, but instead help them infect immune 
cells. Also, vaccinating during a pandemic with a 
leaky vaccine removes the evolutionary pressure 
for a virus to become less lethal.
    * There is a vast and appalling criminal 
conspiracy that directly links both Anthony Fauci 
and Moderna to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
    * COVID-19 vaccine researchers are directly 
linked to scientists involved in brain-computer 
interface (‘neural lace’) tech, one of whom was 
indicted for taking grant money from China.
    * Independent researchers have discovered 
mysterious nanoparticles inside the vaccines that 
are not supposed to be present.
    * The entire pandemic is being used as an 
excuse for a vast political and economic 
transformation of Western society that will 
enrich the already rich and turn the rest of us into serfs and untouchables.

A Criminal Conspiracy

It’s a long letter, so I won’t reproduce the 
whole thing here. However, the following sections 
are of particular interest, with regard to a 
criminal elite that is orchestrating the 
destruction of life as we know it, in an effort 
to usher in a technocracy-led system of global governance and control:4

“In November of 2019, three technicians at the 
Wuhan Institute of Virology developed symptoms 
consistent with a flu-like illness. Anthony 
Fauci, Peter Daszak, and Ralph Baric knew at once 
what had happened, because back channels exist 
between this laboratory and our scientists and officials.

December 12th, 2019, Ralph Baric signed a 
Material Transfer Agreement (essentially, an NDA) 
to receive Coronavirus mRNA vaccine-related 
materials co-owned by Moderna and NIH.

It wasn’t until a whole month later, on January 
11th, 2020, that China allegedly sent us the 
sequence to what would become known as 
SARS-CoV-2. Moderna claims, rather absurdly, that 
they developed a working vaccine from this sequence in under 48 hours.

Stephane Bancel, the current CEO of Moderna, was 
formerly the CEO of bioMerieux, a French 
multinational corporation specializing in medical 
diagnostic tech, founded by one Alain Merieux. 
Alain Merieux was one of the individuals who was 
instrumental in the construction of the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s P4 lab.

The sequence given as the closest relative to 
SARS-CoV-2, RaTG13, is not a real virus. It is a 
forgery. It was made by entering a gene sequence 
by hand into a database, to create a cover story 
for the existence of SARS-CoV-2, which is very 
likely a gain-of-function chimera produced at the 
Wuhan Institute of Virology and was either leaked 
by accident or intentionally released. The animal 
reservoir of SARS-CoV-2 has never been found.

This is not a conspiracy ‘theory.’ It is an 
actual criminal conspiracy, in which people 
connected to the development of Moderna’s 
mRNA-1273 are directly connected to the Wuhan 
Institute of Virology and their gain-of-function 
research by very few degrees of separation, if 
any. The paper trail is well- established.

The lab-leak theory has been suppressed because 
pulling that thread leads one to inevitably 
conclude that there is enough circumstantial 
evidence to link Moderna, the NIH, the WIV, and 
both the vaccine and the virus’s creation together.

In a sane country, this would have immediately 
led to the world’s biggest RICO and mass murder 
case. Anthony Fauci, Peter Daszak, Ralph Baric, 
Shi Zhengli, and Stephane Bancel, and their 
accomplices, would have been indicted and 
prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. 
Instead, billions of our tax dollars were awarded to the perpetrators.

The FBI raided Allure Medical in Shelby Township 
north of Detroit for billing insurance for 
‘fraudulent COVID-19 cures.’ The treatment they 
were using? Intravenous Vitamin C. An 
antioxidant. Which, as described above, is an 
entirely valid treatment for COVID-19-induced 
sepsis, and indeed, is now part of the MATH+ 
protocol advanced by Dr. Paul E. Marik.

The FDA banned ranitidine (Zantac) due to 
supposed NDMA (N-nitrosodimethylamine) 
contamination. Ranitidine is not only an H2 
blocker used as antacid, but also has a powerful 
antioxidant effect, scavenging hydroxyl radicals. 
This gives it utility in treating COVID-19.

The FDA also attempted to take N-acetylcysteine, 
a harmless amino acid supplement and antioxidant, 
off the shelves, compelling Amazon to remove it 
from their online storefront. This leaves us with 
a chilling question: did the FDA knowingly 
suppress antioxidants useful for treating 
COVID-19 sepsis as part of a criminal conspiracy against the American public?

The establishment is cooperating with, and 
facilitating, the worst criminals in human 
history, and are actively suppressing non-vaccine 
treatments and therapies in order to compel us to 
inject these criminals’ products into our bodies 

Conclusions: The current pandemic was produced 
and perpetuated by the establishment, through the 
use of a virus engineered in a PLA-connected 
Chinese biowarfare laboratory, with the aid of 
American taxpayer dollars and French expertise 

Either through a leak or an intentional release 
from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a deadly 
SARS strain is now endemic across the globe, 
after the WHO and CDC and public officials first 
downplayed the risks, and then intentionally 
incited a panic and lockdowns that jeopardized 
people’s health and their livelihoods.

This was then used by the utterly depraved and 
psychopathic aristocratic class who rule over us 
as an excuse to coerce people into accepting an 
injected poison which may be a depopulation 
agent, a mind control/pacification agent in the 
form of injectable ‘smart dust,’ or both 

They believe they can get away with this by 
weaponizing the social stigma of vaccine refusal. 
They are incorrect. Their motives are clear and 
obvious to anyone who has been paying attention.

These megalomaniacs have raided the pension funds 
of the free world. Wall Street is insolvent and 
has had an ongoing liquidity crisis since the end 
of 2019. The aim now is to exert total, 
full-spectrum physical, mental, and financial 
control over humanity before we realize just how 
badly we’ve been extorted by these maniacs. The 
pandemic and its response served multiple purposes for the Elite:

    * Concealing a depression brought on by the 
usurious plunder of our economies conducted by 
rentier-capitalists and absentee owners who 
produce absolutely nothing of any value to society whatsoever 

    * Destroying small businesses and eroding the middle class.
    * Transferring trillions of dollars of wealth 
from the American public and into the pockets of 
billionaires and special interests.
    * Engaging in insider trading, buying stock 
in biotech companies and shorting 
brick-and-mortar businesses and travel companies, 
with the aim of collapsing face-to-face commerce 
and tourism and replacing it with e-commerce and servitization.
    * Creating a casus belli for war with China, 
encouraging us to attack them, wasting American 
lives and treasure and driving us to the brink of nuclear Armageddon.
    * Establishing technological and biosecurity 
frameworks for population control and 
technocratic- socialist ‘smart cities’ where 
everyone’s movements are despotically tracked, 
all in anticipation of widespread automation, 
joblessness, and food shortages, by using the 
false guise of a vaccine to compel cooperation.

 The Elites are trying to pull up the ladder, 
erase upward mobility for large segments of the 
population, cull political opponents and other 
‘undesirables,’ and put the remainder of humanity 
on a tight leash, rationing our access to certain 
goods and services that they have deemed 
‘high-impact,’ such as automobile use, tourism, meat consumption, and so on.

Naturally, they will continue to have their own 
luxuries, as part of a strict caste system akin 
to feudalism. Why are they doing this? Simple. 
The Elites are Neo-Malthusians and believe that 
we are overpopulated and that resource depletion 
will collapse civilization in a matter of a few short decades.

They are not necessarily incorrect in this 
belief. We are overpopulated, and we are 
consuming too many resources. However, 
orchestrating such a gruesome and murderous power 
grab in response to a looming crisis demonstrates 
that they have nothing but the utmost contempt for their fellow man.

To those who are participating in this disgusting 
farce without any understanding of what they are 
doing, we have one word for you. Stop. You are 
causing irreparable harm to your country and to your fellow citizens.

To those who may be reading this warning and have 
full knowledge and understanding of what they are 
doing and how it will unjustly harm millions of 
innocent people, we have a few more words. Damn 
you to hell. You will not destroy America and the 
Free World, and you will not have your New World 
Order. We will make certain of that.”
