Was Alex Jones right in how he spoke to David Mayer de Rothschild?

David de Rothschild was a guest on the Alex Jones show

David Mayer de Rothschild is a fabulously wealthy member of the Rothschild banking family, so in other words he is part of the elite who run the world but does this mean that he should be condemned because of his background? Does this mean that he personally agrees with what others in his family believe or have done? I personally don't think so.

Alex Jones, a name well-known to conspiracy theorists and truthseekers, is a man I usually have a lot of time for, however, I thought he acted really badly when he had David de Rothschild as a guest on his show back in 2007.

Alex Jones versus David de Rothschild

Although Jones made some very good points he became rude and insulting to his guest and in my opinion failed miserably in making his audience think badly of De Rothschild. If anything he achieved the opposite.

As I see it, just because David comes from the Rothschild family does not mean that he is guilty of any evil crimes against humanity that Jones would like to pin on him. Because someone is related by blood to someone else or is part of a family does not mean anything more than that. Often children can disagree very strongly with their parents or other relatives and should not be tarred with the same brush because of the bad ways of people they are related to.

Nevertheless, I don't think De Rothschild's views are always correct either and I am not at all convinced that Global Warming has been caused by people nor that "green taxes" that have been put forward as a solution are the answer. I think that De Rothchild's opinions on the throwaway society are right though - we do need to cut back on our wasteful ways of living and we need to find solutions to the very real problems we face.

David de Rothschild is known as an adventurer, an explorer and an environmentalist. He is the founder of Adventure Ecology and also the author of The Live Earth Global Warming Survival Handbook: 77 Essential Skills to Stop Climate Change—Or Live Through It.

He has an advanced Diploma in Natural Medicine from the College of Naturopathic Medicine, and he is the owner of an organic farm in New Zealand. This is of interest to me because it shows that De Rothschild favours alternative healthcare and healthy food as opposed to what is generally available.

National Geographic

David de Rothschild was highly acclaimed by National Geographic magazine and he has travelled to the North Pole, crossing the Arctic from Russia to Canada. He has also journeyed to Ecuador and seen the rainforests and their ongoing destruction for himself.

David de Rothschild is embarking on another new adventure, in many ways following in the footsteps of the late Thor Heyerdahl, who crossed the ocean on his raft the Kon-Tiki and proved that such journeys across the sea were possible. De Rothschild is sailing a raft known as the Plastiki across the Pacific Ocean and it is made up of 12,000 plastic bottles.

David de Rothschild at Zeitgeist Europe 2007

Great Pacific Garbage Patch

He will be passing by the Great Pacific Garbage Patch on his journey, a vast area spanning hundreds of miles made up of floating garbage and held there by a vortex of currents. Besides showing the degree to which plastic waste is not being recycled but is a major source of pollution he will be raising awareness of the extreme dangers to marine life that such rubbish can create. Turtles and seabirds such as albatrosses mistake plastic floating items for jellyfish and swallow the indigestible trash, which often results in their deaths.

De Rothschild has the wealth to do whatever he likes and yet he has chosen to pursue an often very difficult and hazardous way of life on his expeditions and adventures. I have included some videos and links to information and I will let you make up your own minds about him.

Thank you, Yasmeen!

Yasmeen E. Stewart on January 20, 2013:

Moreover you know that I believe the banking system was installed by greedy men and must be dismantled by noble men, that is with out question. David is just one member of a family and is not responsible for the entire unit. He can only take credit for what he undertakes and I think he is trying to educate a future generation in a positive way on what is happening to our oceans!

Yasmeen E. Stewart on January 20, 2013:

Look Alex is just hyped up over the Rothschild banking interests. It is what he has built his whole career on the 12 families that rule the world. Seems my blood line is one of them all my conspiracy theorist friends relish telling me that and I have been deleted over it. I think the Stewart bloodline having ruled Europe for a 1000 years and having still all of our blood line in power the O negative reptilian bloodline which I believe is most recent U.S. Presidents blood type is as believable as anything The Rothschild's are only the bankers It is the constant hunt for the boogie man. When all anyone needs to do is get a mirror and have a cold hard look! The enemy is always within!

SmedleyJr on October 15, 2012:

The interview was a setup. Jones is a Fed, controlled opposition meant to make a mockery of the Patriot/9/11 Truth movment. The interview was conducted in order to make Jones appear to be an irate, irrational buffoon while Rothschild appeared calm and collected. Anyone tuning in who was not a believer in the NWO would be immediately turned off to the truth movement. Additionally, you have a permanenet record of the event. Jones accomplished the same thing a few years back when he disrupted a pro gun rally in Austin.

Infowars is meant to attract and catalogue the diehard rebels and extremists for tptb while maintaining the appearance of a circus just enough so as to turn away the vast majority of first time listeners. I believe that Jones speaks much truth, but his oftimes puerile, insulting and hyper-emotional ranting discredits the truth that he speaks. How much info he twists or omits is the subject for another discussion.

Also, the fact that he allows blatant racists and self-confessed White Supremacists to post on his website, coupled with his constant harping on those nebulous banksters which encourages anti-Semitism amongst his "infowarriors," conveys quite clearly to a first time visitor that these "Truthers" are, in fact, right-wing, Bible-thumping, tin foil-hat-wearing, neo-Nazis white trash. Infowars even included an article by Suzanne Posel a few days ago in which she blamed the woes of the world on Zionist Jews. Infowars is meant to turn the masses AWAY from the simple truth that the .001% are in the process of killing the vast majority of us and permanently and completely enslaving the rest.

As the elite take incremental steps towards complete control over the world and each one of us, there must come a point when it starts to become obvious to thinking people that we have a profound problem with our government, if you could call it that. The elite have reasoned that they must control this awakening and stifle it, relegate it to a fringe movement in the eyes of the majority. IMO, Jones is their crown jewel in this arena.

Marty Lybbert on October 10, 2012:

Mr. David Mayer de Rothschild remained composed while self-proclaimed christian, Alex Jones, went on showing no christian traits whatsoever. I follow neither, for no truth was there.

Mr. David Mayer de Rothschild should be interested to know that Mitt Romney will be president and God's church will go unto every nation, kindred, tongue, and people. God left the ancient knowledge in King Solomon's temple to be found and guide the New World Order for His wise purposes. The NWO brought down the haughty while lifting the poor, leveling the global playing field for Christ's return. God is now done with the NWO. The "illuminated" will see who exactly is illuminated. If Americans had loved their enemies they would have avoided all the death and destruction their own government conned them into. God proved He was right about forgiveness and now with all the terror throughout the world He will show us all the way to His restored church. Latter-Day Saints have no enemies. The NWO did God's will with minimal casualties. Everyone is a product of his environment and innate disposition, so no sailor is so far from shore that he cannot be saved.

All is well in Zion. Give peace a chance. Traitors and tyrants will fight us in vain.

dont give your name on comments like this on October 12, 2011:

alex jones is the"turd in the punch bowl"of conspiracy theorist .he promotes truth while also promoting a bunch a bs so your average ignorant person sees this an thinks everything he beleaves in is bs.this means that the ones in charge are aware of our awarness an are putting forth measures to control/confuse us.why wouldn't the rothschilds see the need to have a spokesman in the "aware" community?who better then a member of their own family!

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on October 11, 2011:

So what are you trying to say exactly apart from babbling on about money?

Lance Johnson on October 11, 2011:

thats just under $100,000 for every person in the world.

Lance Johnson on October 10, 2011:

Some experts have estimated the net worth of the Rothschild's to be between 100 to 500 trillion.

How do I contact David DeRothschild? I am apolitical.

transcend on August 28, 2011:

first let me say .. fk alex jones.. he is a low life opportunist riding off the truth movement.. the left put him in the spot light and he is a closet right wing nut job.. however, the simple fact is that 911 was a demolition and the rothchilds had the most to gain.. it is royal dutch shell that is the senior partner of the oil cartels that include exxon/mobile and the rest who now sit in the heart of the green zone in bagdhad.. it is owned by the rothchilds.. i don't know david.. and i don't know if he is a bad guy.. i don't think you can blame him for being born a rothchild.. and meanwhile alex is hosting people like ''lord monckton'.. who is a complete corporate sellout.. but i have also seen the people who oppose the truth of what is going on with the rich starting wars around the world for corporate profits be the most loud mouthed and rude fools around.. they quickly fall into ignorant name calling when they are cornered by the truth..

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on August 22, 2011:

Frater Perdurabo, I agree with all you say here, having observed the same behaviour of which you speak from conspiracy theorists and Icke and Jones supporters! Thank you for your feedback!

Frater Perdurabo on August 21, 2011:

The arrogance and hypocrisy of conspiracy theorists continues to astonish me; they behave just like (and sometimes even more like) "sheep" and "brainwashed cult members" than those who they accuse of being "sheep" and "brainwashed cult members." It is a prevalent trait amongst conspiracy forum members; you only need to visit David Icke's forums to notice it.

For example, more often than not, they'll praise themselves to the high heavens because they see themselves as "enlightened" (as if only they are privy to some profound truth, rather like a member of a gnostic sect) and laud it over the "idiot sheep" who follow "everything they see and hear on the media." Where on earth do they think they receive their information if not from the media, or a media of sorts? Yes, they receive information from "alternative" as opposed to "mainstream" media sources, but why can't the former be as susceptible to same doubts as the latter? Why trust figures such as Alex Jones and David Icke implicitly?

I also find that there is a proclivity towards inverse snobbery (which indicates fear) amongst conspiracy theorists, which dictates that all people with aristocratic and royal blood, and anyone who happens to be a scion of a wealthy family, is regarded as "SCUM" simply by virtue of their birth. To be honest, I'd rather associate myself with the "SCUM" than with the common cry of curs who seem to populate forums similar to David Icke's. At least those of the "upper-class" are more likely to express themselves clearly, unlike the barrage of incoherence and vulgar language you see from a lot of members of conspiracy theory forums. I've noticed it too in your comments section, Bard of Ely. It seems that whenever a conspiracy theorist criticize David for simply being a Rothschild, they seem to do it in a vulgar and incoherent manner with very little grasp of grammar and punctuation. Maybe I'm being a little too harsh, but it seems to be indicative of a particular mindset

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on July 23, 2011:

Thanks for your feedback, Bud! I heard that it wasn't planned at all but had "slipped in" in promotional work David was doing for his book at the time.David once tweeted that perhaps he should phone Alex and thank him though because after all the show resulted in him finding a new and loyal supporter in me!

Bud Gallant from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada on July 23, 2011:

I remember hearing this interview and I did think Alex Jones came across rude and obnoxious, but I suspected at the time that this was likely something they had planned to be entertaining for listeners. It is a radio show, after all. But, either way, I don't believe in condemning someone for the actions of their ancestors. I also do not think there is inherently anything wrong with being wealthy and powerful. It's what you do with that wealth and power that matters.

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on June 24, 2011:

For a start I don't think David has anywhere near the sort of money you believe he has so I disagree with you on that, and even if he did that is not an answer.If you did some research on me and my background and what I have looked into (much of which is published here), and my opinion on the very biased way conspiracy theorists view individuals like David based on nothing more than the family name and what, for example, a David Icke book says, you might understand a bit more of where I am coming from. You are clearly an example of someone within a "belief system" yourself! In your case it is that of the standard conspiracy theorist, most of whom hold views like yours! I suggest you read my hub about Familyism. Over the past few years I have woken up to the way that conspiracy 'gurus' like Icke and Jones weave a spell over their followers with material that has a vast number of holes in it, often cannot be scientifically proven, and is often little more than propaganda in itself. The people who listen to Icke and Jones then seem to feel some sort of superiority in their knowledge to 'lesser mortals' whom they call "sheeple" and tell to "wake up!" The problem is these people are as much sheeple themselves! I don't believe in chemtrails and I don't believe in reptilian shape-shifters in the bodies of the elite family members and world leaders either. These things are belief systems as well.

MindEagle on June 23, 2011:

Hey Bard. What I want to know is why if Rothschild is so worrying about the environment why doesn't he use all his wealth (which is more than a few Europan nations GDP combined) to buy all the platic factories and change the world? You think I am kidding about how much wealth he has.

What makes me smell a rat. Well he won't give up his billions as an offering will he? He doesn't care about this stuff, if he did he would prove it through his actions. Yet all his actions show him as an egocentric figure keen on promoting his own ideological agenda.


Think that one over Bard and wake up mate! Your being controlled and the first reaction to being controlled is to be in denial to attack yourself and pretend your not. But I never said the truth was going to be easy or comforting. It has taken me a journey of 8 years to see through the illusions and this has come from doing yoga, meditation and studying philosophy and everything I could get my hands on to understand the human condition and how the EGO works.

Throughout history elite families have always devised newer and and more manipulative schemes to hold onto their vast sums of wealth and power. They love giving it to you right up the backside and you seem to want more and more of it. Its called PROBLEM -> REACTION -> SOLUTION. This is the formula they have used for centuries. This is what starts wars, this is the driver of global change. Pose a problem, make the public react to it, then give them the solution that you had planned all along (carbon credits to create more wealth).

Even Rothschild's himself has admitted in another video that there is so much money to be made out the climate change. I suggest you look at a few more of his videos and discover these Freudian Slips.

Let me give you a little starter in POWER 101 class. By the way I have studied sociology and psychology and have a PhD in Public Relations so I know rhetoric when I see it.

1. The World is controlled by belief systems. So anyone who offers you a belief system is your enemy. Truth needs no belief, let me remind you truth needs no belief. Don't believe totally in anybody's BS. The second commandment is like unto the first: don't believe totally in your own BS.

2. Deep down every man is a theif, rapist and murderer. Instincts are only diverted into socially acceptable and unacceptable.

3. Anything that brings fear you should be skeptical of. Anything which claims something "is" be skeptical. Anything that brings happiness, laughter and joy embrace.

4. This world has been around for billions and billions of years. Humans have been around for perhaps 200,000 and industrial humans have been around for perhaps 200 years.

What is going to happen to the Earth is going to happen to it no matter what. It is a ridiculously naïve assumption to think we can have any control over nature. Nature and evolution is blind and always finds a balance and equilibrium.

Rothshchild's is a scam based on the idea of carbon credits which will be used by the rich industrial nations to tax the poor developing third world nations and hold them back from competing with the developed world. This is exactly why the Rothschilds are so worried, that there hegemony on global power is being challenged by developing nations and individuals in China and India etc.

Here are some vids for you to check out which may increase your conciousness:

George Carlin - Saving the Planet

K Foundation burns a million quid:




Don't you see the Rothschild worship money. That is the this milleniums greatest idol. You can burn all the money in the world today and it wont change a thing about people starving in Africa or the environment etc. Its a scam and always has been. Its about power.

Thanl you for reading Bard if you got this far. I don't claim to have the truth. But please ask Rothschild to prove his not caring about money first before you buy his story.

Alex might have some good information to share; but I think he let his cards too far from his chest on that one, he's blown his cover, you might say, and not his "cool."

Satan on January 20, 2011:

Nothing is black or white indeed. Some of us see the truth and it's good for rothschilds we are a minority. You should delete this post too, it's no good for PR. No point arguing further is there. Every 1 has an agenda.. it's down to who wins, and my money is on rothschilds, they are 2 smart :) Seeya man!

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on January 20, 2011:

Dams can cause big problems too and destroy the way of life of people who depended on the free flow of rivers. Nothing is black or white!

Satan on January 19, 2011:

Well, it is up to the people now whether they choose to believe in man made global warming, and make the Rothschild family more powerful than ever before (aside from what the media says about them).

Bard of Ely, agree with some of your views, and some of Davids about sustainable living. But carbon trading is nothing but a scam. And so is 'water scarcity'. Simply by building many more dams, many countries can hold more fresh water than they need.

But hey, it's up to the people to choose what they believe.. Did we go to the moon? are we all going to die from man made global warming? and is water a scarce resource? The TV will sure tell you YES to those 3.

@J: Greenland was called Grennland because Erik the Red was exhiled there and wanted people to come and visit, so gave it an endearing name!

Good points, Joan! Thanks for posting!

joan on January 05, 2011:

most of these guys just want to make name for themselves and if they can make someone like david look bad than that's good for their ratins sorta like those crappy rag mags where those jerks hang out of trees to try to get bad pictures of decent people just to make a few dollars it really doesn't matter decent people like david will always be decent and theses will always try their crap

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on January 01, 2011:

I don't need to look far or do any research because I loook to nature on on this island the other year there was very little snow on Mt Teide plus we experienced a terrible drought that dried up freshwater ponds and ruined crops. Meanwhile in Columbia the Kogi mamos, who are experts on watching the ecology of the planet, have been dismayed to see that the snow that should be on the peak of their sacred mountain the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta has been getting less and less each year and as they have pointed out without snow there is no water and with no water everything will die! If the world was not experiencing Global Warming why no snow and why the droughts? Jones did David a favour because he gained a supporter in me!

dhowdy on January 01, 2011:

If you can find evidence of global warming you researched yourself I would like to see it. I have seen no evidence so see no reason why we should be taxed for it. You are blinded to De Rothschild and it is no surprise. Wealth, good looks and charm are all very seductive. Jones did himself no favours in his interview but he was right nonetheless.

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on December 15, 2010:

Thank you for your comments, GmaGoldie! In many ways the most interesting thing about this in my personal life is this motivated me to become a supporter of David's so with me it had the reverse effect of what Jones was trying to achieve.

Kelly Kline Burnett from Madison, Wisconsin on December 15, 2010:

Bard of Ely,

Rehashing a conversation for this purpose is needed. Kudos to you for bringing this to our attention.

The media and the global citizens of the world NEED to take responsibility. Freedom is not free, offending even the rich has no place in sharing information. Words such as "information war" sell because they play upon emotions.

Screaming at a guest - wow! My admiration for Mr. Rothschild for his ability to return the conversation even though he was interrupted several times by a screaming man.

Citizens of the world need to speak up. Bard of Ely, you are doing an important service. It is the responsibility of the citizens of the world to speak up when someone is offended - even the very rich, even the elite rich.

Differing opinions must be encouraged. Offending anyone is a disservice to democracy.

glendoncaba from Somewhere in the hubverse on October 26, 2010:

Lots of ammo here for conspiracy theorists. As if more is needed.

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on August 16, 2010:

VCastro, you have spelled my name wrong as has the last person to post here but whatever...I am actually really sick of hearing all this anti-Rothschild stuff that I have have to delete at Facebook where I have had long arguments with bitter and biased conspiracy theorists and David Icke fans! Global Warming or Climate Change is real enough for me and I see enough evidence for it. I note that the Kogi mamos in Columbia, an ancient tribal people who know all the signs of what to watch for in the ecosystem are dismayed that the top of their sacred mountain no longer gets the clouds and snow it should have. I saw Mt Teide here have the same problem the year before last when we had the worst drought in 48 years as well. I see now that Greenland is continuing to melt. I would say all these things are evidence enough for me. Why are they happening if the planet is not warming?

But no, I don't think humans have much impact on Global Warming but they have a very big one on global pollution, which is what David is focused on showing up and has done so. Green taxes help stop polluters polluting, that is the big companies that make this mess. I have also seen for myself the public left to show "green responsibility" and they do nothing until forced to by law. Where I used to live the residents were given the choice of putting recyclables in green bags for collection. I was the only person in a street that did so. I moved away and came back some years later and was pleased to see all the green bags out. I commented to a friend and she said, they haven't done this by choice but because it is a rule now here! That said a lot to me! People will not act to do something responsible like recycling unless forced to.

If something is not done to stop global and environmental pollution we are going to see a lot more species go extinct!

As for Alex Jones, when David asked him if he had been to see the real state of the Arctic for himself, of course he had no answer because he hasn't and David has! He has been to both polar regions, been to the South American rainforest areas and now has just crossed the Pacific Ocean so I think he would be a very qualified person to speak from experience on these places. He recently pointed out that in all the thousands of miles they covered with the Plastiki they hardly saw any marine life and caught only three fish. That should show us what a very real mess the oceans are and I applaud David's efforts for doing what he has done!

VCastro on August 16, 2010:

Bard of Fly, David de Rothschild is pushing for global conservation justified by a false need and fabricated notion that man made pollution is what is responsible for the current warming of the planet's cycle, so that his wealthy banking family cartel that already rules most of the worlds monetary systems and makes hand puppets out of all the government officials that run and tax the countries (and kills them if they don't agree, like thugs) to impose new taxes on activities that are said to pollute the atmosphere, such as the carbon tax. David's part in this is to come across as the all time nature world lover /explorer who's 'been there' and 'has seen it' and disguise the elite's new underlying agenda through 'a good cause'. Alex Jones was trying to get him to acknowledge that 35,000 scientists all agree that anything man is doing is not what is causing any normal planetary warming and cooling cycles. The fact that David de Rothschild does not acknowledge the evidence as described by actual scientists who know this stuff 1000 times better than his 'explorer' title allows him to understand should tell you that he is part of a large scale effort and agenda to sway the public into accepting new taxes based on 'global conservation'. Just like Al Gore's participation in this. You think the Rothschilds didn't engineer is role in this effort? He does not deserve our trust to participate in any public and politial agenda based wholey on who his brothers and fathers are and what the banking cartel are all about. I believe Alex Jones had to raise his voice in anger for thinking David was going to simply walk in there and lie to him about what is happening to the world and dodge the questions about scientific evidence and the underlying politial motivation of his family & the corrupt elitist revolving around this. Good for Alex Jones for expressing insult and anger towards the Rothschild's lineage, he is representing a much needed sentiment from all peoples of the world whos lives have been negatively affected by the greedy and forcefull agenda's of the Rothschilds. People like you don't seem to understand this it seems, and you are hung up on treating a man nicely out of respect to the fact that he is not his family, but you don't seem to realize, that he is his family's new generation of deception and drive for control & eventual ownership of a centralized corrupt banking cartel. He is tightly associated with premeditated agenda's steming from this family's current politial position and involvement in efforts to be in global control. He's a wolf in sheeps clothing Bard de Fly. Don't you get it?

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on July 17, 2010:

Thank you, BebeGlobe!

BebeGlobe from NewYork on July 17, 2010:

Hello Bard Of Fly,

I have read your profile and many of your earlier stories, and I gotta say. You're a very interesting character! I'm intrigued!

Thanks for writing this very interesting story. Yes, people are not to be blamed for being born into rich families that did some questionable things, especially if these descendants are trying their best to do the right thing.

Thank you, Cameron!

Cameron on June 27, 2010:

He seems like a decent stand up fellow.

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on June 22, 2010:

Thanks for all that, Rose! A lot of it I have heard before in conspiracy theory and alternative history sources. As for the Bible I do not believe it is at all reliable as a source of info and I have no need for it in my life or any of the other man-made world religions which I see as an amazingly successful method of mass mind control!

Rose on June 22, 2010:

Yes,Yes I have read and heard many say the Bible was written by fallible men suggesting they have put one over on the whole world...and some men have but who and how...they mixed truth with what part is the truth and what part is lies and how to know the difference?

Rather then all the back and forth debate which I don't have much time for ...I will just sum it all up in the below...if you want to read it...your choice and be done with it for I have to move on.

I am an very skeptical personality myself and I want nothing but the pure truth and I am a truth seeker as my basis to start with I am a history buff,Biblical,World and US and have done much research which I love to do.

I have searched out translations of the Bible long ago, I have read up on origins and history and practices of of world religions and I have read and studied the Bible and more so with the advent of internet to search through museums and on archeological findings..each piece of evidence found only proved God's Word correct to me, as are world events in relation to the prophecy in God's Word....the one world money the prototype already made and presented in the upper echelon finance meetings of the elitist, Globalist that privately call themselves the Olympians who work for the Committee of 300 now with all is added subgroups who are ruled over themselves, they are financed by the Rothschild Family Banking Empire ..they claim to be Jews but as history shows there are Jews and there are Jews (those who call themselves Jews but really are not, the first commercial bankers were those who called themselves Jews, descendants of ancestors that had been in Babylonia/Sumer(ruled over by fallen angles who the people called gods and their hybrid children ( can find museum and archeological site photos of them, found at dig sites and some hidden away skeletons..the flood in Noah's day was sent because of what they had turned the earth and its inhabitants into...they and there bloodlines were extremely, insatiably evil) these so called Jews learned Babylonian money changing ways and brought those teachings/ways into Spain) the Ancestor of the Rothschild banking family,so I have read, had a so called "angelic" visitation he was a poor Jew(Jews so called came from Judah in the south captives returning from Babylon but Israel was in the North and is gone the 10 lost tribes are from there) in a European ghetto...the visitor told him the Messiah was not Christ but would come forth from him and all his family line carrying out the perpetual plan the visitor gave him...he started carrying it out and eventually the Rothschild family had full control of England's banking system using their fractional reserve banking techniques (really just a racket) and Monarchs through debt and the people of England through the Monarchs taxation of them to pay their debts to the Rothschild Family...they came to America in its beginning..stealthy as they had in England and France, infiltrator certain organizations and used these connections to carry out their plans...they even had a postal system in Europe so I read, that intercepted high ranking mail they used to then help carry out their plans(they instigate wars on both sides and finance both sides and the reconstruction costs earning high interest rates which they use to loan to the Monarchs etc of these countries at higher and higher rates until they are forever in debt to them renegotiating the terns time and again adding municiples like public water supplies and energy and then land as collateral for this never ending debt, who owns your municiples, who sits on the board of that company do they attend the Bilderberg meetings are they in any of the subgroups of the occult Committee of 300 are they secret Masons or secret Zionist Jew Masons who follow the orders of the occult infiltrator GrandMasters who follow the orders of the Committee of 300 who follow the orders of the ones that rule over them which I elect not to mention at this time but you can research it out if you want) to take over the money of countries so as to rule over the leaders hencej the people by proxy,this is and has been done since early on in America(though there was short period America had it's own issue money and was very rich and in need of no debt by its industrious people or Gov.) through their then called Central Bank now called Federal Reserve which is privately owned by a few holders of stock that is not publicly offered on the market, then their created US silver certificate then fiat dollar/note and the Federal Reserve Act which was passed after aj very secret meeting held on Jekyll Island.

As for Gods Word telling lies....wrong and here is why, and why you would say that.

God is in control of ALL of HIS Creation all the time and he has used evil ones to do good.

God does not lie but his WORD says he has by proxy,read this:

I don't think anyone wants to be deluded but they can be by their own will for many reasons...

God,Creator but also a Father to many is in charge of the going out of his Word(which is extremely important to him for he is literally the WORD,HIS WORD says so in Hebrew (Hebrew writing referred to below) in Genesis and HIS WORD became flesh and dwelled among men i.e. Jesus Christ) he gave it to HIS faithful,loyal people/children to write with their hand but were writing what his spirit told them to write (they had a personal relationship with him,they communicated to each other...there is too much ancient historical documentation,Hebrew,Secular historians and Christian history to show this to refute that God was with them and among them) to prove the truth of this which was the Hebrews in Old Testament times who wrote the Word given them in Hebrew (so read the Hebrew, PC translates)and then the born again Gentiles and Jews of the New Testament writings and of the first Christian churches overseen by the Apostles (read Polycarp and Iraneaus who were disciples of the Apostles of Jesus Christ who commanded the Apostles teach orally all that Jesus had taught them and so and so on orally(the tradition of orally handing down information was already in use for thousands of years so was handing it down word for word as there were few that could read or write,the disciples of Christ did both) and they did this but also warned the born again children of God that wolves had already crept in among them teaching wrong things causing confusion,Origien who SOME call an early Church Father had attended the schools of Philosophy of Greece and in his writings he blended those philosophical teachings of man with the pure teachings given by Jesus to the Apostles (blending truth with lies which is still ongoing today in many forums in the world,church,media wherever the Beast's New World Order occult ideologists are serving in the many,many positions they have been groomed to placed in and then by the people they have swayed by using those forums into believing their blended information and so engineering)this mixing causing confusion beginning very very early in church history within the first church....the "Protest"ants felt that some VERY important knowledge had been taken away and lost but did not/could not know what all the knowledge was to find(great libraries of knowledge hidden/locked away from man which is why Martin Luther went into exile to hide because he had learned some truth and was writing it and Gutenberg was printing it and more of men were learning to read for themselves..this was why men were hunted down and stop the going forth of that truth that had been hidden/taken away gradually over the course of time by mixing lies with truth and verbally giving this mixture to the illiterate people with great pomp from a church that had connected itself to the state to rule the leaders who ruled over the people and they killed many through these leaders who would not believe "their" truth) it as they did not live in the age of information technology that man now have (and Obama is working turn

Okay...all here need to research the origin of the going green is coming from the NWO globalist...their international org. the U.N. created with money from a fund called Lucifer's Trust Fund later. for obvious reason that name was changed to the Lucis Trust Fund, anyway their U.N has been given very large segments of land in a great many of US states via treaties..the U.N. has large segments of land in many countries in which they are creating and operating bio reserves and have remapped the land of the world and are changing land areas to match that map..some of created communities in these bio reserves have become cashless societies which is of course leading into the whole one world monetary system...that would be found in the Good Book in the Book of Revelation...God don't lie.

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on April 26, 2010:

Why would National Geographic give David de Rothschild publicity? Simple: because he is a very famous person. That is often how the media and the way of the world works - who wants to read about someone they have never heard of or who has no claim to fame? If you were running a media publication who would you want to feature - someone who was a celebrity or someone nobody has heard of? Which is going to get you the most readers and the most sales? David is doing something it is in his power to do - use his name and fame to get media attention and coverage for his Plastiki Expedition and in so doing raise awareness about plastic pollution and the need for responsible use of resources. How can he be expected to use his family's wealth and power? He is a family member not the family!

def on April 25, 2010:

Why is it that whenever a member of the establishment elite takes up the green banner they are suddenly hailed as an iconoclastic, visionary hero by the press? Why would National Geographic give Rothschild such glowing publicity? Consider that National Geographic is owned by Rupert Murdoch's Fox Broadcasting empire. Murdoch has close ties with the Rothschild family, whose scion, Jacob Rothschild, serves as the deputy director of UK Bskyb, a Murdoch media holding. Good PR for the Rothschild family whom is still very active in the murky and unscrupulous world of international finance and have done much to elicit suspicions and accusations throughout the world.

How is it that someone as dull as Al Gore, or a member of the infamous Rothschild dynasty, can become a media celebrity overnight crusading as an eco-warrior? While I value the health of our planet's ecosystems as much if not more than most the green agenda definitely appears to have been co-opted by powerful interests. The green energy industry is poised for explosive growth so is this really a surprise? We already know the earth is being trashed and we don't need a self-righteous tycoon to point this out. If David de Rothschild was truly a compassionate and mindful person, he would use the power and wealth of his family to directly better the lives of those in developing countries whose misery his family and others have profited from.

Concerning Alex Jones he is rude and insulting as ever.

You can run on for a long time sooner or later god will cut you down.- Johnny cash.

You see guys what we have here is gods grand plan. Look at your bible its full of nothing but the truth ( except the certain books the roman Catholics slipped in the old testament) everything going on right now is in there from money being evil to the exact description of Rome being the evil church and its place in Jesus Christ return and it describes our friend David a handsome brilliant young man from Jewish german decent who is going to come from no where and change the earth. Well I have nothing to bash David with I hope he enjoys his life BC I am enjoying mine seeing our lord Jesus Christ prophecy coming true :) god bless you all

Snydely on March 29, 2010:

I just think Rothschild is completely out of touch with the challenges faced by us plebs. And yes, Alex was incredibly rude.

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on March 11, 2010:

Thank you, Charles! We certainly do have a very long way to go but that is part of why I decided David was worth supporting because he has said as much - that the time for debating is over and that the time for action is now and has shown by his current own example that he was going to do his bit with the Plastiki. If he can motivate and inspire people and if he can make a lot more people aware of the pollution issue then he is doing very good work to my mind. Similarly with his book, if people follow suggestions in there then the world will be better for it.

Chales Kafka on March 11, 2010:

bard of ely.

i totally respect what you are doing. and any solutions to these problems that beset us, if they are to be cured, are going to have to be followed by open dialogue.

So I applaud both you and David R for this.

But we have so far to travel.

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on March 11, 2010:

For me, Charles, it is a question we can all ask ourselves - what do I actually need? The problem as I see it is that all of us have lots of things we don't need and this is driven by the consumerist materialist society and advertising. I have too many clothes and they are not all ones I bought but many have been gifts. Most people have too many clothes. Animals have the one coat of fur or feathers or scales they are wearing. I have given a lot of thought to this and concluded that we have become a consumerist culture and it's not just via advertising and the media because under tribal conditions too, people have an urge to decorate their bodies with clothes and ornamentation and to have possessions and a home. People in the consumerist society have increased this and taken advantage of it to manipulate others and accumulate riches. I once asked my good friend King Arthur Pendragon what a person needs in terms of material possessions and he answered it would be those items from all that you have that you could wear or carry with you and nothing more. He is the only person I know who has voluntarily given up nearly all his material possessions at one point in his life. He left his house and everything in it, his job and all he took was his motorbike and what he was wearing.

I believe David de Rothschild makes a valid point in talking about how "shopping as a hobby" is wrong and that we should buy only what we need. As to what our needs are, as I say, I think that is for each of us to judge having given thought to the matter.

Thanks for respecting my comment. you have my respect. May god guide you in the right direction.

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on March 09, 2010:

Well, Mike, you have your opinions and I have mine. As it happens I am now in contact with David and helping run a fansite for him. As I have often stated I fail to see why he cannot be treated as the individual he is and not blamed for the sins of others in his family. David is doing what he can to help clean up the mess the world is in with his Plastiki mission. He has spoken out against consumerism and "shopping as a hobby."

Mike Santos on March 09, 2010:

As much as I would like to believe in the true generosity of The Roths'David, I do know what his family has done to the whole planet, Almost every country in the world is ruled by his bank conglomerate cartel. His family has killed in the past two U.S presidents in the past for not letting his family institute the Federal Reserve ( which is owned by his family)who was abe lincoln, and later killed JFK for trying to rid our government of the federal resrved. 2 his family has caused the most massive holocaust of last century, they created facism and marxism (btw K marx and then funded both sides to make themselves wealthier. they instituted the state of Israel (ashkenazi Jews as they call themselves, are not even ethnic Jews, they )which now terrorizes the whole world with the hepl of their MOSSAD, (Zionist CIA) to creat turmoil to which their banking interests best fit. 3.his family and friends controls all or most media around the world and have created the most biased censor driven media that ever before,and his family is the cause of most of the terror, famine, plunder, to humanity over the last two centuries, and you expect us to give him some credit. Seriously, A jones acted very foolish but what can u expect someone to react to someone who's got the blood of hundreds of millions of people on his bare hands, his family are the initiator of the masonic cult and accepted satanics. I dont know if you are religious or not but as a christian I do know that the devil dont show himself as a wolf but as sheep and he is doing just that. he aint fooling me, I dont care if he takes fleas out of a kangaroo's butt in alice springs in Australia, he is still a Rothschild, Evil in flesh!!!

i like Alex Jones, but I think his ego is getting a little too big...

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on February 16, 2010:

Thanks, Jim! Well, AJ did get a reaction - he got me siding with David and since then I have been in support of him and been in touch via Twitter.

Jim Strutzin on February 16, 2010:

Because of his laugh, I am unconvinced that David's reference to the planets distance from the sun was a mistake. I also feel that it is possible Alex purposefully insulted Rothschild as an attempt to draw a reaction. It was a very interesting interview to say the least, thanks Bard.

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on January 13, 2010:

David did not get much of a chance now did he? So what if he made an error about those planets. But under the torrent of verbal abuse from Jones it was hardly surprising he wouldn't be at his best and why would that be something he should know in any case? As I have explained before it is the sort of thing I would really have to think about to put the planets in order and might make an error myself. David is not an astronomer. I don't know for sure but I suspect that if you asked a cross section of the general public to list the planets of this solar system in the right order you would find that many could not do it. He was supposedly there to talk about his book but was not given much chance to do so.

Brad on January 12, 2010:

Alex Jones might of got mad, but why couldn't David talk about anything? All he did was give generic details. He even said jupiter mars and saturn are closer to the sun than the earth.

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on December 29, 2009:

Thanks for your comments!

RaizedUp on December 29, 2009:

Hi, Bard. I have to agree. Jones is either conducting generally pretty random ad hominem attacks against some "evil elite individual of the Nooooo Woarld Orderrr", or sucking the sack of the flavour-of-the-month (generally unwitting) co-intel stooge, who he will no doubt slander to hell and back the very next week. He loves a bogeyman, and the Rothschild-Rockefeller "axis of evil" normally features towards the top of the bill. Tune in if you want a bit of pantomime, but otherwise I give him a pretty wide berth.

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on August 31, 2009:

For a start I believe in giving credit where credit is due and as I have pointed out I agree with the bulk of the info and advice De Rothschild has in his book. All the people that criticise him have not read the book or have such biased opinions against him that even though he is doing good they still brand him as evil! He is recommending organic farming and diets, recycling what you can, reading all labels, avoiding harmful chemicals, appreciating and connecting with nature, planting trees, growing your own fruit and veg, walking and riding a bike, taking less flights, being vegetarian, and even promoting hemp clothing and including Friends of the Earth and Greenpeace in the organisations listed in an appendix, but significantly, not the WWF.

He is encouraging people to go out and have an adventure and see the state of the planet for themselves, and to do something about it. He is trying to motivate young people, he is trying to motivate everyone to do something!

What I don't agree with is the global warming caused by us idea and support for Al Gore etc but I would suggest that it is possible De Rothschild does not have the full picture and has been "educated" with wrong info. But that's not surprising - many people have the same incorrect viewpoint because that has been taught in the mainstream.

I would like to think that he could be the guy to turn the whole thing around and I would think it more logical to be trying to get him to see the big picture rather than railing against him that accomplishes nothing.

The fact that he asked AJ to send him the evidence Alex had shows he is willing to look at material he does not know about.

If the Plastiki project is successful at raising awareness of plastic pollution in the oceans and how plastic can be and should be recycled then I would say that was very worthwhile.

John on August 30, 2009:


Thank you for your comments, but if these forums are to be used for the good of all and not just for D D Rothschild then we must raise these important issues with him instead of praising him for this insignificant work.

Wouldn't it be better if he were to use his wealth and his publicity for raising these important issues, but I guess his relatives and corrupt associates wouldn't allow for that. But if he had the courage he would no matter what the outcome.

Remember its people like JFK who came before us and had the courage to raise these issues and ultimately pay for it with his life. These are the people we must praise.

Look I'm not praising Alex Jones but I don't see anybody else raising these issues and putting it out there so people can become aware. As for Mr Rothscild, I just think he's just trying to divert the public from the real problems. And we all know what they are (and if we don't, it's about time we got off our facebook and twitter and became more aware instead of being the ignorant human beings that we are).

And if we are really concerned about this planet and quality of our lives then we (and I mean all of us) must raise our voices in the right direction and demand real change!

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on August 30, 2009:

John and Ozzy, I hear what you are saying and I am well aware of the fact that this planet could be using free energy and that this has not been allowed. It has not been allowed or promoted because it would totally change the way the world is run and would overturn the power structure as it is and the ways that wealth is generated. It is my hope for the future that eventually it will be used!

In the meantime, however, recycling the materials we are currently using is completely logical and worthwhile so De Rothschild raising awareness on that as an issue is of great value.

The Global Warming scam is another part of the big picture's big problem!

OZZY on August 30, 2009:

I agree with John.

And the Australian Labour Government has proved this. They have tried to pass a bill giving concessions to carbon polluting corporations while increasing taxes on their citizens. In 2007 the Labour government was elected on the basis that it would reduce emissions and fight global warming however just this year alone they have increased its carbon footprint by 1%, that's not what I call fighting global warming.

And by the way they've just signed off on a $60 Billion gas exploration venture to supply China and India with gas so they can pollute the world further then they have already.

So I guess this is what Governments call Global Warming solutions!!!

john on August 30, 2009:

All you people believing in the global warming scam need to open your eyes and see the TRUTH. Please consider the following.

If global warming is man made and is a real threat then why hasn't the world embraced Tesla's free electricity????

Why have numerous energy saving inventions being suppressed and inventors silenced or even killed????

These are facts.

Why Mr David Rothschild???? If your a real environmentalist wouldn't you start to save the world by reducing the amount coal and other fuels used to produce energy????

I would of thought that's a good place to start!!!!

Did you know people there are ways to produce free energy even on a domestic level. None of which have been discussed by the main media or Mr Rothschild!!! I wonder why???

FYI. Tesla's free energy ideas were stopped by JP Morgan, a Banker and Rothschild's associate. I wonder why???

My question is, if world governments and Mr Al Gore (Rothschild's Puppet) really care about the the planet way the F**K are they still polluting it and collecting vast amounts of taxes from its production and its consumer use!!!



Alex on August 29, 2009:

You say in your article that you can't blame this Rothschild for his families ills but you are immediately discredited because of this; he is pushing a carbon taxing scam.

But I guess we shouldn't blame him for, no, let's blame his relatives. That makes perfect sense.

MatTheCat on July 28, 2009:

Whilst I am quite sure that Rothchild junior will not be doing anything that might upset the mainstay operators of the Rothchild empire, he is clearly just a rich kid doing his own thing with as far as he is concerned, the best intentions at heart. It just so happens that the wealth that supports him to run around the world acting the Exploring Environmentalist Extraordinaire, happens to come from probably the largest single private concentration of wealth on the planet and indeed the wealth whose creation has had the most devastating social, political and environmental impact.

David de Rothchild may be a great great great grandson of Nathan Rothchild and the son of Evelyn Rothchild, but this genetic reiteration of the Rothcild bloodline is clearly a very different 'genetic expression' than those guys and many other Rothchilds like them.

When I graduated from uni with an Environmental Science degree, I was a firm believer in global warming and with the very best of intentions would defend the theory passionately against anyone who questioned it? However, should I have ever went on the Alex Jones show back than I am quite sure I would be labelled as some kind of New World Order undercover operative working incognito for the big banking cartels. This is the sort of simplisitic sensationalist tabloid worldview that Alex Jones promotes. In short, the guy is a trashy american bigot and does a lot to disuade the 'thinking man' from any countertheory argue he promotes.

Although I am quite sure that the 'other' Rothchilds would consider Davids appearing on Alex Jones sensationalist conspiracy radio show as nothing more than a minor embarassment, Rothchild junior done an excellent job of making Jones look like the abrasive samll minded bigot that he is.

Jason on July 28, 2009:

The Cap and Trade money (ie. carbon taxes) will be paid by the billions to the Rothschild bank in London. Do you really think the Rothschilds give a shit about the environment? They want even more money than the trillions they currently control. Money is the root of all evil. Look what happened to Jesus when he drove the money changers from the temple. He was dead in a week.

MatTheCat on July 26, 2009:

Wot Ron Tal said!

Alex Jones is tabloid sensationalist scum and any 'alternative theory of events' that he gets his hands on soon very much becomes a CONSIPIRACY THEORY in every sense of the paranoid delusional sense of the world.

Jones has become practically globally famous and very wealthy from churning out this lowest common denominator US v THEM; 'the people' versus the 'elitists' bullshit. Therefore, it is in his personal interests and probably also in-keeping with the gratification of his own personal paradigm on how the world operates to portray David de Mayer Rothchild as an evil overlord hell-bent on wiping out most of the planet and then ruling over the remnants of us for the rest of eternity.

David De Mayer Rothchild may have the blood of devils in him and he may be a relative of devils in the present, and an ancestor of devils in the future. Indeed, the source of the fortune that allows him to lead the life that he leads, or the devastating impacts the creation of the fortune has had on whole nations is very well documented. But to him, that is all just academical.

In summation, David Rothchild is just a well-meaning rich kid living his life the way he wants to live his life and trying to have as positive an impact as he can. (although I am quite sure that if in his green pursuits he went barking up any of the 'wrong trees or promoting the 'wrong' things, then someone somewhere would soon pull him into line) Any reasonable person could from listening to the interview see that much for themselves. Jones on other hand just came across as a small minded, abbrasive, and arrogant red neck bigot. Which is of course what he is. I couldn't believe the way in which he picked up on the 'Planets Closer to the Sun' thing.

This interview has put me right of Jones even more than I already was.

Ron Tal on June 30, 2009:

David is a rich spoiled brat... I wouldn't look much more into it.

As for the global warming bill... the scam of the century, but if people like Alex Jones think it's logical to pin it down on a narrow group of people... they are really doing disservice when it comes to understanding what's wrong with our system of government.

Andrew Hawkley on June 21, 2009:

Peter, what's wrong with Satan? Jesus lovers haven't always proven to be too peaceful. You're missing the point. I don't assume the rest of your family is rude and abusive just because of what you've written here.

peter on June 21, 2009:

Rothchilds are scum.You idiots are being duped by a family who are confessed satanist. 34 000 scientist do not agree that man made global warming.But are not allowed to say such bc off,off th corporate media scum who are actually controlled by families like the Rothchild. THey are infact manipulating the atmosphere through thing like harp and paying companies which they own to do this. Taxes thats all . F**k these scum .And for you all who actually like listen to this crap. From an elitist family you people are scum too. They are confessed satanist simple truth. Well done Alex jones. They are scum and that little rothchild will be deafeated. Well done, sheep. The house of rothchild wiil fail.

How can you say David is scum? Do you know him? On what basis do you make such a judgement?

blavla on June 19, 2009:

im sorry,

yes alex got angry, maybe he should have kept his cool. BUT BUT BUT

he is talking to david rothchild. who is SCUM. his family is SCUM.

So in the end of the day..

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on June 18, 2009:

Yes, David de Rothschild did stick to what he wanted to talk about and kept his cool despite Alex Jones going off at him with a barrage of irate and hostile remarks. The best Jones could come up with was that Rothschild made a mistake about the planets and their distance from the Sun. For me as someone who has supported Jones, and still do, it was a real mess of an interview and showed Jones at his worst!

Pete Maida on June 18, 2009:

Anytime one resorts to personal attacks they lose the high ground in a debate. If you are confident in your position you should be able to stick to the issue.

Steve Andrews (author) from Lisbon, Portugal on June 18, 2009:

William, whilst I would agree with you that the problem is that it is men that run the world, the point I was making here is that it is wrong to judge David de Rothschild because of who his family are which is what Jones was doing. De Rothschild is not portrayed by the media as "an ordinary decent guy" at all but as a handsome and heroic adventurer with plans for saving the world. Conspiracy theorists like Jones have branded him as part of the evil elite and I don't think this is right. De Rothschild's current adventure project will raise a lot of awareness about the dangers of dumping plastic in the oceans and is a call for recycling. I think people need to know about these matters so I think this project deserves to be applauded. That he is known to be a follower of natural medicine and organic farming are also very good things.

BTW in the following interview David de Rothschild credits Sylvia Earle as his inspiration:

And I quote:

"What's inspiring you right now?

Sylvia Earle… the deepest woman I know! She is an explorer in residence at National Geographic and an inspiration to all beings… What a lady!"

William Bond from England on June 18, 2009:

There is a problem in seeing someone like David Mayer de Rothschild as just an ordinary decent guy, and that if the people who rule our world are just ordinary men, then why is the world in the mess that it is?

We have the choice of seeing the rulers of the world as just ordinary people who haven't a clue what they are doing.  Or see our rulers as people who know exactly what they are doing, but are basically evil.  Neither prospect gives us much hope for the future.

My personal take on this is that the problem with our world, is that it is ruled by men, and 5,000 years of history has shown men to be incompetent rulers of our world.  It would be better if we were ruled by women.

I cant agree with you more about tarring people with the same brush, just because they are family........... We are all individuals and should be treated as such, and indeed treat others as such also...

Sadly many people in my opinion, dont have that much insight, and just listen to what media say........ I thought the points you made were very good, I enjoyed your hub, and have enjouyed your posts in the forum very much recently...... May your god be with you...... HA HA Brenda xx
