Before you trust a power player, read up on their history.
The history, family, and associations of a power player are essential prerequisite info, if a person truly wants to understand who they are and what they do.
Since we’re forced to deal with President Donald Trump, let’s take a look at what he was born into. He inherited millions of dollars from his US military affiliated real estate baron father, Fred Trump.
His uncle, John G. Trump, was an engineer working with the military industrial complex affiliated school MIT, and examined brilliant engineer Nikola Tesla’s stolen papers after his death.
Donald Trump’s grandfather Frederick Trump was an immigrant from Germany to the US. Fred and John G. Trump inherited the foundation of their opportunity from Frederick.
Frederick Trump had problems with immigration in his lifetime, and was denied the ability to again become a German citizen, after fleeing to the US to dodge military service (not that there is anything wrong with avoiding serving in the military of a government you don’t believe in).
At the age of 16, in 1885 Friedrich Trump landed in New York after emigrating from Kallstadt, Germany. He made a fortune in the Pacific Northwest during the gold-rush era, selling restaurant rooms with prostitutes and alcohol to miners trying to find gold.
He worked under the direction of John D. Rockefeller’s investment near Seattle in the last decade of the 1800’s. According to an article by researcher Gwenda Blair published in Politico:
“Friedrich Trump’s Seattle restaurant flourished, but he kept his ears open—another aspect of the Trump family MO. In 1894, he heard that John D. Rockefeller, the wealthiest man in the world, was bankrolling a mining operation in a small town north of Seattle named Monte Cristo. Without delay, Trump scoped out the best location there, secured it by filing a bogus mineral claim, built a hotel on the parcel even though it didn’t actually belong to him, and began giving the customers, once again, exactly what they wanted: plenty to eat, lots to drink and of course women.
When Monte Cristo proved slow to deliver on its promise, Rockefeller publicly reiterated his support while secretly arranging an exit. In the summer of 1897, Trump also decided to cash out and return to Seattle—making him, along with Rockefeller, one of the few investors in Monte Cristo to end up winners rather than losers.”
Although this doesn’t imply any kind of close relationship between Rockefeller and Trump, it is telling in some way that they both made their fortunes in the same atmosphere. It paints a picture of where power today originates and how it inherently behaves.
Whether or not John D. Rockefeller had a relationship with Friedrich Trump, Donald Trump today has a relationship with Rockefeller’s Standard Oil corporation, which is now ExxonMobil.
