The Red Cross is widely considered a great American institution. It is generally thought of as among the world’s premier humanitarian organizations. Clearly, almost everyone thinks of it as a life-saving agency. Most people know this non-governmental organization (NGO) to be heavily dependent upon the blood and currency generously donated by the American people. But, what if all of the above is untrue? What if everything you think you know about the American Red Cross is a ghastly nauseating lie?
Founded in 1881 by American humanitarian Clara Barton, the American Red Cross (ARC) was first chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1900. A second charter, still in force, was granted in 1905. To begin, during this time, John D. Rockefeller and his associates were making a concerted effort to control the entire field of medicine in America. During the 1890s, Rockefeller interests in medical education and scientific medicine were spearheaded by Frederick T. Gates, John D. Rockefeller’s investment manager. 1901 saw the founding of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. In 1902, Rockefeller’s General Education Board was founded. This agenda was clarified two years later with the publication of John D. Rockefeller’s Occasional Letter No. 1 in which he detailed his plans to mold Americans to his concept of perfect human nature. This, he claimed, might best be accomplished by destroying parental influence, traditions and customs, while reducing national intelligence levels.
By 1907, medical education had been mostly monopolized by the Rockefeller consortium. That year, the American Medical Association (AMA) advanced its medical education rating system effectively eliminating, by 1918, approximately 600 of the initial 650 medical schools. Through Rockefeller cohorts in the Andrew Carnegie Endowment for the Advancement of Teaching, Abraham Flexner was appointed to survey medical schools throughout America. This led to the infamous Flexner Report that vilified every alternative to drug-based medicine. The Rockefeller’s political control over this American medical coup was clearly reflected in Flexner family relations. Abraham Flexner served on the Rockefeller’s General Education Board. Abraham Flexner’s brother, Simon, headed the Rockefeller Institute of Medical Research. Simon’s brother, Bernard, later joined the board of trustees of the Rockefeller Foundation after he helped found the politically powerful Council on Foreign Relations.
