It’s officially been a year since many of the country’s COVID-19 lockdowns began, and for many Americans it’s been a year of struggling to work from home while caring for kids, or a year of being unemployed and anxiously awaiting more federal aid. For American billionaires, though, it’s been a year of record profits: In the past year, the combined wealth of the nation’s 657 billionaires has increased more than $1.3 trillion, or 44.6%. ...

“They exploit the artificial markets created by the pandemic, including having their Main Street competition shuttered and our increased dependence on online technologies.”


It's all going splendidly according to plan!

And this doesn't even count the 50 new vaccine billionaires:

The ability to make billions off of an unnecessary vaccine with zero liability for manufacturers is why hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and other very cheap treatments like ivermectin are disparaged in the press. They are simply too cheap and effective.

I’m making an effort to avoid buying anything from Amazon.

I was planning on flying to San Diego then buying HCQ in Tijuana if I were concerned about getting sick.

I’m old enough to remember the Twilight Zone; I feel we’ve been living in an episode for a year.

this is the one and only FUCKING reason why we had the scamdemic. It also boggles my mind that most people supposedly on the Left do not see this - namely that scamdemic was one of the most successful wealth transfers from poor to rich ever.

First result on DDG:

Davos by the Numbers: 119 Billionaires, 309 Private Jets ...


One small nuke there would definitely make the world a better place.

That's way less than I thought. I was going to guess thousands. I suppose that's good. Maybe some of the others ain't woke.

Many of the billionaires are simply lower level management for the less numerous trillionaires who coined them. They can be defrocked of their 'billionaire' status at any time and sacrificed as knights or bishops. Politicians are errand boys who can be easily sacrificed as pawns.

A lot of these billionaires are criminal lieutenants and spies. The moniker 'billionaire' is there because it draws oohs and aahs from the peasants and politicians know that their bribes, gratuities and dirty tricks are funneled through them, and that they are an interface of executive and criminal function for the Globalists and Deep (Shallow) State.

Fucking Epstein was a 'billionaire' and Soros is nothing but a hatchet man for the various intelligence agencies and banks. Robert Maxwell was a 'billionaire'. We know how things went for Maxwell and Epstein.

What billionaires you see at Davos are these crime boss billionaires and their chained whores. Davos is more like a World Mafia Summit for the Globalists. They show up to get marching orders and to ask favors of the Mob bosses.

It is probably less likely that you would see genuine, self made billionaires there, but I imagine there are a few.

There are only about 2,200 billionaires on earth.

I don't think there are any trillionaires. Who would they be?

City of London, Vatican, Royal Family, various Swiss entities, and also some Asian families. The ones who print and control the money and have piled up the assets over the centuries, and have monopolized the major profit centers.

You're not supposed to know much about the trillionaires. A whale that doesn't surface never gets harpooned, yet many of the well known, public functionary billionaires are the sock puppets. The Royal Family are trillionaires, and are out there as figureheads, but that is by necessity. All their squealing about petty amounts of money and tapping into the tax base are show.

Mere billionaires don't have enough money to create the uniform, centrally managed wave of propaganda, insurrection, fraud and takeover that USA has experienced. Billionaires would be lower level money distributors and executives Only the major world money printing presses could keep this shit afloat and operate so many news outlets at nominal losses and keep those idiot soap star talking heads on payroll.

We are at war, and they have pulled out the stops, but I would imagine that the enormous cash flow drain would eventually tax even them to the point that things would relax. The pressures of keeping up all of these psychopathic frauds and lies is enormous. If it doesn't result in complete dominance at some point, it becomes a war of financial attrition, which I think is where it will wind up.

Those may each have more than a trillion dollars, but I was talking about individuals.

If you look at the Walton family siblings together, they are worth about $200B, much more than Jeff Bezos personally.

In theory the Queen owns, oh, Canada. Among other countries. But she can't really sell it and spend it.

Yeah, it's amazeballs how fast some of this tech fuckers got sooo rich. Former pal of mine was whining at me about the Koch bros right before the election. He had no idea one was dead and the other was an anti-Trumper globalist. Worth a mere 120B today.

Oh, well I guess that IS more than Bezos at 180B. Still, I think there's more of them. Do more damage joined at the hip.
