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.
Donald Trump’s Secretary of State is Rex Tillerson, ex-Exxon executive.
Continuing from the article:
“In the New Arctic Restaurant and Hotel, which he opened in the raw new town of Bennett in May 1898, he again offered ‘private boxes’ for ladies, facilities that included not only a bed, but a scale for weighing the gold dust used to pay for services.
It was the best restaurant in town, one newspaper reported at the time, but added that it ‘would not advise respectable women to go there to sleep as they are liable to hear that which would be repugnant to their feelings and uttered, too, by the depraved of their own sex.’”
The story is continued by Wikipedia:
“He bought all the necessary supplies, sold off his remaining property in Monte Cristo and Seattle, and transferred his 40 acres in the Pine Lake Plateau to his sister Louise. In 1900, Louise sold the property for $250. In the winter following Trump’s departure from Monte Cristo, the town suffered some of the worst avalanches and floods in its short history, and this time, Rockefeller refused to reconstruct the almost vital railroad to Everett.”
The same author wrote another article in the Week, continuing the story into the 20th Century. It says:
“Friedrich died in May 1918, just before the end of World War I. There was a rising tide of anti-German sentiment in America, manifested in accusations of disloyalty against people with German backgrounds, diatribes against music by German composers, even bonfires of books by German authors. People with German names changed them, and readership plummeted for the nation’s hundreds of German-language publications.
This xenophobic atmosphere had a profound impact on Friedrich’s older son, Fred (named after Friedrich but in an Americanized form). Only 12 years old when his father died, Fred was now the man of the house, and he began to tamper with his family history — that is, to tell it like it wasn’t. Despite growing up in a German-speaking home and speaking his parents’ language on visits to Kallstadt, he said he didn’t know German, and by the beginning of World War II, he said his family was from Sweden.”
So that brings us to Donald Trump’s father, Fred Trump. When Fred Trump’s father Freidrich died, 13 year old Fred became the man of the house.
By age 15, his mother helped him begin a career in building homes and real-estate, using the wealth accumulated by Freidrich: Donald Trump’s father was given a more modest silver spoon than Donald, but a silver spoon nonetheless. With the inheritance from his father and his work in real estate, Fred Trump helped his brother John G. Trump enter academia.
Fred Trump became a millionaire working with the US Military in WWII, building barracks and apartments. According to Wikipedia:
“During World War II, Trump built barracks and garden apartments for U.S. Navy personnel near major shipyards along the East Coast, including Chester, Pennsylvania, Newport News, Virginia, and Norfolk, Virginia.
After the war he expanded into middle-income housing for the families of returning veterans, building Shore Haven in Bensonhurst in 1949, and Beach Haven near Coney Island in 1950 (a total of 2,700 apartments). In 1963–1964, he built Trump Village, an apartment complex in Coney Island, for US$70 million.”
This is how Donald Trump was born into a position to create his own fortune, following his father into the real estate business with both his money and business connections.
The exact amount Donald received from his father to start his life is debated. Hillary Clinton (not that she is to be trusted or respected) claimed he received $14 million.
Donald Trump claimed he received a “small” sum of $1 million to start, and other evidence suggests that he received other loans from his father. He also received a $1 million trust, as did his siblings. According to the Washington Post:
“The casino document lists several other loans from Trump’s father to his son, including a $7.5 million loan with at least a 12-percent interest rate that was still outstanding in 1981.
In a 2007 deposition, Trump admitted he had borrowed “a small amount” from his father’s estate: ‘I think it was like in the $9 million range.’”
During the time that Fred Trump earned his fortune, his brother and Donald’s uncle John G. Trump was working with the mad scientists at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), de-coding brilliant engineer Nikola Tesla’s stolen papers.
MIT is a central hub of science for the military industrial complex, as we’ve scratched the surface of in past articles. Researcher and author Peter A. Kirby thoroughly exposed the root of geoengineering (spraying the skies) in MIT, and his latest article can be found here.
John G.’s association to Tesla was summarized by Big Think:
“A few days after Tesla died on January 8th, 1943, his possessions were seized by officials from the amazingly-named government Office of Alien Property. About 3 weeks after that, all of Tesla’s things and documents were given a thorough examination by a group of FBI agents that included none other than John G. Trump.“
John G. Trump wrote about Tesla’s stolen papers, but perhaps his statement was meant to dissuade people from believing they found something of value in them, to keep the findings a secret. He said:
Tesla’s “thoughts and efforts during at least the past 15 years were primarily of a speculative, philosophical, and somewhat promotional character,” but “did not include new, sound, workable principles or methods for realizing such results.”
More basic info about John G. Trump can be garnered from Wikipedia:
“During 1942, Trump became Secretary of the Microwave Committee, a sub-committee of the NDRC. The director of the Microwave Committee was Alfred Lee Loomis, the millionaire physicist, who decided to create a laboratory. He selected a site for it, chose a suitably discreet and ambiguous name for it and funded the construction, until the Federal administration was established. The new institution was the MIT Radiation Laboratory, or the “Rad Lab”.”
So what does this say about Donald Trump? One thing is certain: he is not new to the game of political power, to the military industrial complex, or to wealth.
He has never had a history of caring about our class of people, and he has filled the White House with nothing but bankers, oil barons and people who loot and pillage our class of people.
Just as Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama represented forces larger than them, from Goldman Sachs to the modern day incarnation of Rockefeller’s Standard Oil (ExxonMobil), all of them accept money and direction from the exact same entities.
It is purposefully difficult to differentiate who is against who in this powerstructure, but it’s safe to say none of them have our best interest at heart.
