In the earth 20th century, a political cartoon depicting John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil as an octopus wrapping its tentacles around all aspects of government made history.
It’s not hard to see why people feared his influence. The man practically monopolized the oil industry, and has the highest net worth of any American ever recorded. His inflation adjusted wealth in 1913 converted into 2007 dollars amounted to $336 billion. One man had the wealth which is the equivalent of 1.5%-2% of the entire U.S. economy at that time. That’s more money than Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and the Koch Brothers have – combined.
Rockefeller, of course, was a private citizen however. For all the concerns of his political influence, it’s not like he was in charge of politicians. His Standard Oil was eventually declared to be in violation of anti-trust laws by the U.S. Supreme Court, and was split up into 34 separate companies (some of which you know today as ExxonMobil, Chevron, and others).
In other words, his influence was limited.
But in the case of Hillary Clinton – she has another currency to offer: power. It’s no coincidence Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and other Gulf regimes are donating millions to her via the Clinton Foundation. It’s paying in advance for special favors in the event that she’s elected President. The cartoon below offers a much needed update to the Rockefeller cartoon from 1904.
And in this case – it’s actually accurate! She’s managed to collude with the FBI and DOJ, stemming from her influence at the State Department, so get herself off charges that would’ve sent anyone else to prison. The IRS has a history of targeting conservatives – and we know that Hillary will use that power if elected to the Presidency.
And lastly, the press is in the tank for her. We’ve heard about every single possible “scandal” of Trump’s, which have comprised of nothing but rhetoric that offended liberals. When will they ever report on Clinton’s sinister crimes?
