Dr. Joseph Mercola, Who Owns Big Pharma + Big Media? You’ll Never Guess

By Dr. Joseph Mercola

BlackRock and the Vanguard Group, the two largest asset management firms in the world, combined own The New York Times and other legacy media, along with Big Pharma.

Story at-a-glance:

  • Big Pharma and mainstream media are largely owned by two asset management firms: BlackRock and Vanguard.
  • Drug companies are driving COVID-19 responses — all of which, so far, have endangered rather than optimized public health — and mainstream media have been willing accomplices in spreading their propaganda, a false official narrative that leads the public astray and fosters fear based on lies.
  • Vanguard and BlackRock are the top two owners of Time Warner, Comcast, Disney and News Corp, four of the six media companies that control more than 90% of the U.S. media landscape.
  • BlackRock and Vanguard form a secret monopoly that own just about everything else you can think of too. In all, they have ownership in 1,600 American firms, which in 2015 had combined revenues of $9.1 trillion. When you add in the third-largest global owner, State Street, their combined ownership encompasses nearly 90% of all S&P 500 firms.
  • Vanguard is the largest shareholder of BlackRock. Vanguard itself, on the other hand, has a unique structure that makes its ownership more difficult to discern, but many of the oldest, richest families in the world can be linked to Vanguard funds.

What does The New York Times and a majority of other legacy media have in common with Big Pharma? Answer: They’re largely owned by BlackRock and the Vanguard Group, the two largest asset management firms in the world. Moreover, it turns out these two companies form a secret monopoly that owns just about everything else you can think of too. As reported in the featured video:

“The stock of the world’s largest corporations are owned by the same institutional investors. They all own each other. This means that ‘competing’ brands, like Coke and Pepsi aren’t really competitors, at all, since their stock is owned by exactly the same investment companies, investment funds, insurance companies, banks and in some cases, governments.

“The smaller investors are owned by larger investors. Those are owned by even bigger investors. The visible top of this pyramid shows only two companies whose names we have often seen …They are Vanguard and BlackRock.

“The power of these two companies is beyond your imagination. Not only do they own a large part of the stocks of nearly all big companies but also the stocks of the investors in those companies. This gives them a complete monopoly.

“A Bloomberg report states that both these companies in the year 2028, together will have investments in the amount of 20 trillion dollars. That means that they will own almost everything.’”

Who are the Vanguard?

The word “vanguard” means “the foremost position in an army or fleet advancing into battle,” and/or “the leading position in a trend or movement.” Both are fitting descriptions of this global behemoth, owned by globalists pushing for a Great Reset, the core of which is the transfer of wealth and ownership from the hands of the many into the hands of the very few.

Interestingly, Vanguard is the largest shareholder of BlackRock, as of March 2021. Vanguard itself, on the other hand, has a “unique” corporate structure that makes its ownership more difficult to discern. It’s owned by its various funds, which in turn are owned by the shareholders. Aside from these shareholders, it has no outside investors and is not publicly traded. As reported in the featured video:

“The elite who own Vanguard apparently do not like being in the spotlight but of course they cannot hide from who is willing to dig. Reports from Oxfam and Bloomberg say that 1% of the world, together owns more money than the other 99%. Even worse, Oxfam says that 82% of all earned money in 2017 went to this 1%.

“In other words, these two investment companies, Vanguard and BlackRock hold a monopoly in all industries in the world and they, in turn, are owned by the richest families in the world, some of whom are royalty and who have been very rich since before the Industrial Revolution.”

While it would take time to sift through all of Vanguard’s funds to identify individual shareholders, and therefore owners of Vanguard, a quick look-see suggests Rothschild Investment Corp. and the Edmond De Rothschild Holding are two such stakeholders. Keep the name Rothschild in your mind as you read on, as it will feature again later.

The video above also identifies the Italian Orsini family, the American Bush family, the British Royal family, the du Pont family, the Morgans, Vanderbilts and Rockefellers, as Vanguard owners.

BlackRock/Vanguard own Big Pharma

According to Simply Wall Street, in February 2020, BlackRock and Vanguard were the two largest shareholders of GlaxoSmithKline, at 7% and 3.5% of shares respectively. At Pfizer, the ownership is reversed, with Vanguard being the top investor and BlackRock the second-largest stockholder.

Top owners of Pfizer Inc.Keep in mind that stock ownership ratios can change at any time, since companies buy and sell on a regular basis, so don’t get hung up on percentages. The bottom line is that BlackRock and Vanguard, individually and combined, own enough shares at any given time that we can say they easily control both Big Pharma and the centralized legacy media — and then some

Why does this matter? It matters because drug companies are driving COVID-19 responses — all of which, so far, have endangered rather than optimized public health — and mainstream media have been willing accomplices in spreading their propaganda, a false official narrative that has, and still is, leading the public astray and fosters fear based on lies.

To have any chance of righting this situation, we must understand who the central players are, where the harmful dictates are coming from, and why these false narratives are being created in the first place.

As noted in Global Justice Now’s December 2020 report “The Horrible History of Big Pharma,” we simply cannot allow drug companies — “which have a long track record of prioritizing corporate profit over people’s health” — to continue to dictate COVID-19 responses.

In it, they review the shameful history of the top seven drug companies in the world that are now developing and manufacturing drugs and gene-based “vaccines” against COVID-19, while mainstream media have helped suppress information about readily available older drugs that have been shown to have a high degree of efficacy against the infection.

BlackRock/Vanguard own the media

When it comes to The New York Times, as of May 2021, BlackRock is the second-largest stockholder at 7.43% of total shares, just after The Vanguard Group, which owns the largest portion (8.11%).

In addition to The New York Times, Vanguard and BlackRock are also the top two owners of Time Warner, Comcast, Disney and News Corp, four of the six media companies that control more than 90% of the U.S. media landscape.

Needless to say, if you have control of this many news outlets, you can control entire nations by way of carefully orchestrated and organized centralized propaganda disguised as journalism.

BlackRock-and-Vanguard own the media.

If your head is spinning already, you’re not alone. It’s difficult to describe circular and tightly interwoven relationships in a linear fashion. The world of corporate ownership is labyrinthine, where everyone seems to own everyone, to some degree.

However, the key take-home message is that two companies stand out head and neck above all others, and those are BlackRock and Vanguard. Together, they form a hidden monopoly on global asset holdings, and through their influence over our centralized media, they have the power to manipulate and control a great deal of the world’s economy and events, and how the world views it all.

Considering BlackRock in 2018 announced that it has “social expectations” from the companies it invests in, its potential role as a central hub in the Great Reset and the “build back better” plan cannot be overlooked.

Add to this information showing it “undermines competition through owning shares in competing companies” and “blurs boundaries between private capital and government affairs by working closely with regulators,” and one would be hard-pressed to not see how BlackRock/Vanguard and their globalist owners might be able to facilitate the Great Reset and the so-called “green” revolution, both of which are part of the same wealth-theft scheme.

BlackRock and Vanguard own the world

That assertion will become even clearer once you realize that this duo’s influence is not limited to Big Pharma and the media. Importantly, BlackRock also works closely with central banks around the world, including the U.S. Federal Reserve, which is a private entity, not a federal one. It lends money to the central bank, acts as an adviser to it, and develops the central bank’s software.

BlackRock/Vanguard also own shares of a long list of other companies, including Microsoft, Apple, AmazonFacebook and Alphabet Inc. As illustrated in the graphic of BlackRock and Vanguard’s ownership network below, featured in the 2017 article “These Three Firms Own Corporate America” in The Conversation, it would be near-impossible to list them all.

In all, BlackRock and Vanguard have ownership in some 1,600 American firms, which in 2015 had combined revenues of $9.1 trillion. When you add in the third-largest global owner, State Street, their combined ownership encompasses nearly 90% of all S&P 500 firms.

Blackrock and Vanguard ownership

A global monopoly few know anything about

To tease out the overarching influence of BlackRock and Vanguard in the global marketplace, be sure to watch the 45-minute-long video featured at the top of this article. It provides a wide-view summary of the hidden monopoly network of Vanguard- and BlackRock-owned corporations, and their role in the Great Reset. A second much shorter video (above) offers an additional review of this information.

How can we tie BlackRock/Vanguard — and the globalist families that own them — to the Great Reset? Barring a public confession, we have to look at the relationships between these behemoth globalist-owned corporations and consider the influence they can wield through those relationships. As noted by Lew Rockwell:

“When Lynn Forester de Rothschild wants the United States to be a one-party country (like China) and doesn’t want voter ID laws passed in the U.S., so that more election fraud can be perpetrated to achieve that end, what does she do?

“She holds a conference call with the world’s top 100 CEOs and tells them to publicly decry as ‘Jim Crow’ Georgia’s passing of an anti-corruption law and she orders her dutiful CEOs to boycott the State of Georgia, like we saw with Coca-Cola and Major League Baseball and even Hollywood star, Will Smith.

“In this conference call, we see shades of the Great Reset, Agenda 2030, the New World Order. The UN wants to make sure, as does [World Economic Forum founder and executive chairman Klaus] Schwab that in 2030, poverty, hunger, pollution and disease no longer plague the Earth.

“To achieve this, the UN wants taxes from Western countries to be split by the mega corporations of the elite to create a brand-new society. For this project, the UN says we need a world government — namely the UN, itself.”

As I’ve reviewed in many previous articles, it seems quite clear that the COVID-19 pandemic was orchestrated to bring about this New World Order — the Great Reset — and the 45-minute video featured at the top of the article does a good job of explaining how this was done. And at the heart of it all, the “heart” toward which all global wealth streams flow, we find BlackRock and Vanguard.

  1. There is no evidence of “DEW” being used to start the fires in Colorado. I am happy to consider that possibility if some real evidence is presented. Anything is possible. Eyewitness accounts and on-site photos are a good place to start.

  2. This header graphic of spider webbing connecting who is behind most strife and suffering supersedes all other claims of “it’s the Zionists” “it’s the CCP” “it’s the democrats” “it’s the Devil Worshippers”. If you reject the wild driven wildfire explanation for the carnage in Colorado, who would be ultimately responsible? You could use the same spider web graphic.

    I can confirm a savage directed energy attack on Superior, Colorado based on the tell tale signature of structures turn to dust; a light gray ash while adjacent evergreen trees were untouched. It resembled the Santa Rosa and Paradise fires to the nines. Over 500 houses were turned to dust. Car wheels and engine heads were melted nowhere near a ready flame source. The evergreens stand nearby untouched like green ghosts. The DEW fires would be even more noticeable had it happened before leaves dropped off.

    The News Kens and Barbies have already spun the tale of downed power lines from wind causing this damage. No fucking way.

    Melting points of materials bore people to stone. When I talk about the impossibility of porcelain vanishing in a house fire, their eyes roll with disinterest. When i speak of the rim to rim Grand Canyon like distance between melting points of car wheels and wildfire temps, they just don’t care. The News told them it’s a wildfire so my table of unchanging melting points is just an annoyance. You become a bur in their saddle. It’s so much easier to dismiss the message than to face the horrifying reality. The powers that be could wipe your world from the map with the snap of a finger. isn’t that a bit more frightening than Kung Flu?

    The fires from directed energy weapons are not actual fires. it resembles the house turning into a giant welder’s arc or perhaps an ignited magnesium strip from your high school chemistry class. I recall a neighbor’s house fire from the mid 70s. The house was a total loss and had to be scraped and rebuilt from scratch. You know what was different about this fire verses the directed energy ignition? The Parish family home was still intact. None of the exterior vanished from this realm. It stood there for weeks blackened and yet very much intact until demolished and hauled away. If you look up pictures of structure fires from long ago, very much the same phenomenon can be observed. Some times parts of the structure collapse, however much of them remained standing.

    For those wondering how the map for a re-wilded suburbia in Agenda 21 would be realized, look no further than this photo of Superior, Colorado.


    1. Dig deeper and you discover that the major stockholder in Blackrock and Vanguard is–Surprise! Surprise!–the Rothschild Banking Empire.

      1. Check this photo out of Marshal, Colorado which is nearby to Superior ad Louisville, Colorado. I know this area well from delivering bottled water there in the mid 80s It would be fascinating to find out if this was the only home without a smart meter. Kind of interesting I know a former meter reader who was given the job of destroying his livelihood by Holy Cross Electric COOP. He installed all the smart meters on his route before being permanently laid off. He failed to see the irony of his last job title. This was after he survived a mine cave weeks before it closed permanently. Michael Jaco discusses the latest Colorado SMART fire with a local who also connect the dots between the “fire” and aluminum laden chemtrails. If you have never seen aluminum powder burn, it’s even a more explosive fire than lighting a magnesium strip.


    2. DKraft:
      For years there’s been a lot of talk about ‘DEW’ but never a word about HOW its done. [I have no idea.] If its true, there must be a very technical manner of how its done. Do you have any idea? If you do, please reply here rather than the usual name calling and swearing that you do. Otherwise, “DEW” is just a random theory looking for real evidence.

      As a hundreds of years old fact, large trees are very hard to burn to the ground. Its been photographed many times that if a house or car is near a large tree in a fire, the car and/or house can be burned but the large tree is only superficially charred. The thick bark and internal water protect the large tree. Plus the ground brush soaks up the fire.

      1. Locheed Martin had a promo video on their directed energy cannon using a drone aircraft as the target. It heated up the tail section from long range until it caught fire. After the tail fins were destroyed the aircraft went down and crashed. There was pictures of the device. Random theory okay. Fine. If I can dig up the video I will post it here. I don’t consider it my mission to convince you of anything. When wheels melt off cars no where near a flame source, wildfires ain’t doing that. Porcelain has a melting point of 3500 degrees f and house fires burn at 1500. Why are all the toilets vanishing ? These are not typical house fires. Believe whatever you want.

  3. It’s easy to see from this article why they have tried to Knee Cap Dr. Mercola. And it becomes very clear that Joe Brandon is completely illegitimate. Trump was taken out by a Democrat directed Coup d’etat on Jan 6, 2021. If only legitimate legal votes were counted, Trump won with a landslide of popular support.

    1. GRB writes: “If only legitimate legal votes were counted, Trump won with a landslide of popular support.”.

      Many people agree with this assessment. The cheating by many and any means possible in the 2020 Election was monumental. The 100s of sworn affidavits are a testimony to this FACT.

      I do not know if it was 500 or 1000 Affidavits. To not believe these numbers means that they were LYING which is a felony.

      1. The Affidavits I refer to in my reply are sworn testimonies by people who witnessed cheating or actually participated in cheating in the 2020 Election. By cheating I mean changing votes AWAY from Trump or adding fake Biden votes to the tally.
        I hope that is clear.
