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
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
These parent companies, in turn, are owned by

and therefore decision makers, are the same: Vanguard,
Blackrock, State Street and/or Berkshire Hathaway. In

own set of shareholders. One of the most amazing things
about this scheme is that the institutional investors
also own each other. They're all shareholders in each

Blackrock. Blackrock's largest shareholder is Vanguard,
which does not disclose the identity of its shareholders
due to its unique structure
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 at
"MONOPOLY: Who Owns the World?".
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
These investment firms
are so enormous, they control the money flow worldwide.
So, how does this scheme
While there appear to be hundreds of competing brands on the market,
Russian nesting dolls, larger parent companies own multiple
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:
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,
...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
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.
...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.
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
Here, we find the same Russian nesting doll setup.
Facebook owns Whatsapp and Instagram
Google and all
Google-related businesses, including YouTube and Gmail
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:

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
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

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.

largest textile manufacturers and many of the largest clothing

the automobile, aircraft and arms industries.

department stores and the online marketplaces like eBay, Amazon and
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:
State Street and/or Berkshire Hathaway...
In virtually every major
company, you find these names among the top 10 institutional
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
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
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,
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
"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...
The Fourth Branch of Government

referred to BlackRock as the "fourth branch of government," due
to its close relationship with the central banks.

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
"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

their fortunes via inheritance, monopoly and/or cronyism.
"This means that

Among them we find,

Gielen goes even further in his documentary, so I highly
recommend watching it below, in its entirety.
I've only summarized a
small piece of the whole film here.
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
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

currency], then it will be able to take taxes out of our

It was made by

cover story for the existence of SARS-CoV-2, which is very
likely a gain-of-function chimera produced at the Wuhan

above, is an entirely valid treatment for COVID-19-induced

antioxidant effect, scavenging hydroxyl radicals. This gives it

This leaves us with a chilling question:
