Mercola – “Puppet Master Portfolio” Who Owns Many of World’s Big Stocks? Housing and Macro Economy – Facts, Analysis Plus, Manufactured Housing Stocks Updates


When you want the truth, an old adage among investigators and journalists is to follow the money trail. Cui bono? See who benefits from what is occurring. To tee up the headline topic, jump back in time to the MHProNews report on Juneteenth, 6.19.2021. Our Daily Business News segment on MHProNews published a report and analysis that dealt with several broad and interconnected topics. The “Who Owns Big Pharma and Big Media?” segment of that report linked here and below looked at the interlaced connections through stock ownership of some of the most powerful brands on the planet. They wield an outsized influence on major media and “Big Pharma.” Then, there was a segment of the report that featured “14 Signs America Is Being Undermined From Within,” which MHProNews connected the dots between those separate topics with the Civic Alliance that placed Joe Biden into the White House. Against that obviously related background, see that and another related report linked below, is a new “fact-checked” report from Dr. Joseph Mercola. Mercola and lifelong Democrat Robert F. Kennedy Jr are reportedly at the top of two on the list of those that the Biden White House wants banned by social media.

Where some of us come from, if the powers that be want something banned, that may be a good reason to take a closer look to see why.


Juneteenth 2021-Views from Left, Right Perspectives – 14 Signs America Is Being Undermined From Within – Civic Alliance Members with Manufactured Housing Interests Dominate Media, Big Pharma Brands – plus, Manufactured Home Industry Stock Updates

With that backdrop is this new report from Dr. Mercola. Stating the obvious, this footnoted for key references article. Note that housing is specifically mentioned by Mercola in the context of Blackrock. Blackrock has direct interests in manufactured housing focusing on land-lease communities. Note the video’s provocative “who owns the world” is apparent exaggeration to make their point.

Puppet Master Portfolio

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

August 21, 2021





  • Behind the scenes of many of the companies that provide the products and services you use each day are two investment firms that own more shares than other shareholders. The list includes social media, transportation, news media, food manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies
  • Blackrock and Vanguard hold large interests in pivotal companies, and Vanguard holds a large share of Blackrock. In turn, Blackrock has been called the “Fourth Branch of Government” by Bloomberg as they are the only private firm that has financial agreements to lend money to the central banking system
  • Blackrock also developed the software used by the Fed to manage financial transactions; one Princeton University lecturer has said Blackrock controls the Federal Reserve and has more power than most governments
  • Ascertaining who owns large portions of Vanguard is more difficult as it is a private company that is not publicly traded. It’s important to think globally but act locally to protect your civil rights, including supporting state legislators who support your right to choose health care

Until recently, it has appeared that economic competition has 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 are vying for your loyalty and Pfizer and Bayer are battling for your pharmaceutical dollars. But what is revealed in this video, using publicly available data you can check, is that this has been an illusion.

On the surface, all appears to be the same as it always has been. But the growth of a few corporations, beginning in the mid-1970s, has all but destroyed the competitive market on which America’s strength has rested. As demonstrated in the video, a quick look through Yahoo! Finance shows that Vanguard and Blackrock have been the puppet masters behind nearly every large industry that affects your life.

As you can quickly discern, the global economy may be the greatest illusionary trick ever pulled over the eyes of people around the world. Without doubt, we are in a new place and facing new challenges. It will take accurate information and local action to continue to have the right to take control of your health.

Behind the Scenes, Two Companies Own the Supply Chain

As you watch the video, you’ll see that most of the large corporations that supply the food, information, data and drugs used every day are controlled by a select few investment firms whose sole goal is a greater return on their profits. Of course, that’s been the backbone of a competitive economy — to grow your profit margin while competing against other companies for the same market.

In theory, this competition drives innovation, advancement and price structures that benefit the consumer. However, when one, two or three large companies own most of what you use, competition becomes an illusion, resulting in a monopoly where companies can set a price and there are no other products from which to choose.

As the World Economic Forum1 and United Nations2 collaborate to “build back better,” it is crucial to pay attention to how large corporations across the world may contribute to a societal shift that moves more money into the hands of billionaires and creates a new depth of poverty across the world.

One of the mandates for the Federal Trade Commission is to ensure there is competition in the marketplace. For example, in 2000, a federal judge ruled that Microsoft had maintained a monopoly with Windows and tied the company browser, Internet Explorer, to the operating system, thus gaining a greater economic foothold.3

The company barely escaped being split up, until it agreed with a settlement to curb its practices. More than 20 years later, the Department of Justice is now looking at antitrust allegations against Google’s business dealings that have hurt smaller competitors.4 But the two major investors in both these companies appear to have escaped unscathed.

As you go through the list of companies in which Vanguard and Blackrock strategically hold a large investment interest, consider how the products and services provided by these companies are inextricably intertwined with your daily life.

You may recognize many of these names and some may not be as recognizable. You can do your own search on Yahoo! Finance,5 typing in the company and clicking “holdings” in the navigation bar. The companies span a variety of aspects of daily life, including:

Transportation Holiday companies Car companies
World media


However, as comments on my Twitter feed indicate, it is not always apparent why this information is important to your rights as an individual.6 It may be difficult to imagine a world where your news is being manipulated. As is illuminated in the video, Vanguard and Blackrock:7

“… own the news that’s been created, they own the distribution of the news that’s been created, they own the lives of the reporters that are reporting the news that’s being distributed that’s being created on your TV screen. CBS, FOX, ABC, it doesn’t matter which you’re watching.

They all are using that wonderful phrase from Davos now — build back better. The point being is that you’ve got very few people controlling everything and that’s information. Talk about information is power, well not only do they create the information, but they have all the distribution nodes to literally change the world mindset as it were.”

Every Media Chain Using the Same Narrative

Davos is a ski town in the Swiss Alps but has become the shorthand for the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting that’s held in the town.8 It is a chance for some of the most powerful figures in the world to collaborate. The meeting has been headed and organized by Klaus Schwab, an 83-year-old German engineer and economist. As you consider what you’re hearing in the news, remember:9

“Everything we see on the shelves in the shops, what you buy online, who delivers it, who is making the COVID jab, who is distributing the jab, who is reporting on the jab, who is censoring alternative information about the jab, and all the rest of it. It’s all the same people.”

The consistency of news reporting across mainstream media should now make sense since each of them have similar major investors and those major investors have a singular focus of raising their profit margin while pushing the Fourth Industrial Revolution. How can you believe what’s being told in the news when every news channel is saying the same thing?

It may have been that Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, who broke the Nixon Watergate story in 1972, were the last investigative journalists working for a major news media company who were allowed to follow a news story to conclusion without blatant censorship.

Around the world, doctors are being silenced. At the beginning of the pandemic, medical professionals were told not to speak to the media about a lack of personal protective equipment within the hospital. Although the American Medical Association10 initially came out in support of a physician’s right to speak out about the care conditions, the tables have since turned.

In the quick, six-minute video below, Dr. Dan Stock from McCordsville, Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis, speaks to the board of the Mount Vernon Community School Corporation. He provides the board with documentation to back up his claim that the way in which the community was addressing an attempt to stop the spread of infection was, in fact, ineffective.

The video went viral11 with several million views within a day of its posting on YouTube, before it was taken down for “violating YouTube’s community guidelines.” August 11, 2011, Tucker Carlson featured the video and Stock on his Fox show,12 where Stock said, “It seems to me that focusing on immune system improvement whether through a vaccine or non-vaccine methods is the more rational approach to this.”

Yet, even though Stock provides research evidence and speaks knowledgeably about the transmission of viral illnesses, the rest of mainstream media have not picked up on the story and this information is not being communicated to the public. Those in power want to ensure this type of information is not shared because it’s contrary to the narrative they are promoting.

House for Sale? Blackrock Is Interested

A recent expose in The Wall Street Journal warns, “… yield-chasing investors are snapping up single-family houses to rent out or flip. They are competing for houses with ordinary Americans, who are armed with the cheapest mortgage financing ever, and driving up home prices.”13

Yet, why would institutional investors be interested in overpaying for single family homes? To gain a greater understanding of the answer, you must take a look at Blackrock’s partners, which include the World Economic Forum. The company manages assets that are worth $5.7 trillion and appears to be focused on pushing the average American out of the housing market.

If most of the available housing is owned by investment groups and corporations, they become your landlord. This is one of the ways in which the World Economic Forum envisions society in 2030. It’s the part where you will “own nothing and be happy.”

While it sounds like it came straight from George Orwell’s book, “1984,” it is in fact the agenda published on the World Economic Forum website.14 In fact, Forbes15 published an article in 2016 titled “Welcome To 2030: I Own Nothing, Have No Privacy And Life Has Never Been Better,” which was written by the World Economic Forum.

Interestingly, the World Economic Forum once had a link to the article on their website under “agenda,” but that link is now dead,16 even though a WEF Twitter post17 touting it in 2017 is still up. The link on the Twitter post, however, is also dead. And, curiously, in February 2021, Reuters did a “fact check” which claims the WEF never had anything to do with it.

The Fourth Branch of Government

BlackRock not only is an investment firm, but also has been called the “Fourth Branch of Government” because they are the only private firm with an intimate relationship with the Federal Reserve and financial agreements to lend money to the central banking systems. Interestingly, software developed by BlackRock — Aladdin — is used by the Fed to manage their financial transactions.18

In comparison to other large financial investment firms who have political ties to one party or the other, Blackrock “possesses a power that’s more technocratic.”19 The firm has a global influence as well. They were tapped as an adviser to the Bank of Canada and the European Union hired them to advise them on incorporating governing and social practices.

According to an analysis by Bloomberg,20 the company may be paid as much as $48 million a year in fees, which could cement the company’s ties with powerful policymakers.

To put this into perspective, BlackRock, an investment firm, has more power than most governments and controls the Federal Reserve, Wall Street mega-banks like Goldman Sachs and the WEF’s Great Reset, according to F. William Engdahl, a strategic risk consultant and lecturer who holds a degree in politics from Princeton University.21 They don’t just want your house, they want your life.

But Who Owns Vanguard?

When you take a look at who owns the largest portion of BlackRock, you learn its Vanguard.22 But ascertaining who has the greatest investment in Vanguard is a little more difficult. The company has a corporate structure that makes ownership challenging to discern.

It appears it’s owned by a variety of funds, which in turn are owned by shareholders. Aside from these shareholders, the company has no outside investors and is not publicly traded. As reported in the featured video:23

“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.”

Although getting to the bottom of the major investors in Vanguard is difficult, it’s important to keep in mind that BlackRock and Vanguard, individually and combined, own enough shares in Big Pharma and mainstream media to have control over what is produced, shared and distributed.

This information is important because it is the drug companies and media that are driving the response to this infection. Thus far, it has all endangered rather than optimized public health and the official narrative continues to be false, leading the public further astray and fostering fear based on lies.

To have a chance of righting this situation, we must understand the central players and why these false narratives are being created in the first place. In the Global Justice Now December 2020 report entitled “The Horrible History of Big Pharma,”24 they review the shameful history of the top seven drug companies in the world.

These companies 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.

Think Globally and Act Locally

Just as the market collectively impacted the downfall of the Grocery Manufacturers Association,25 you have an impact in your local community. It may be overwhelming to consider how quickly the world is changing, but you can have a voice in your local community.

As you may know, after my articles have been published for 48 hours, they are no longer available to read. This means, to reference the information you need to protect your health, you must copy and paste the articles and keep them on your hard drive. I encourage you to share these with your friends and family and encourage them to share as well.

It may be inconceivable to think about making a difference on a national scale to protect your civil rights, but there are approaches you can take on a local level that will make a big difference as people across the world speak up.

Many large communities and states are forming groups to stand up for individual rights, to prevent vaccine passports and limit governmental power in a peaceful manner.26 It’s also important to find a group with which to work and to support your state legislators who support your right as an individual to choose your health care.” ##

It should go without saying that having an interest in a stock is not automatically equal to having a monopoly interest in something.

That said, as has long been stated here on MHProNews and MHLivingNews, with all sources, someone should approach it with the notion in mind of separating the wheat from the chaff. The facts can be accurate, while any hyperbole for effect can be muted in our own minds. Some speakers, authors, and producers like to use hyperbole or exaggeration to make their point. That should not be taken literally.

That noted, the principle that a relatively few firms have a keen interest or a strong position in major industries that includes necessities such necessities as housing, health, food, transportation, communications, and related nonprofits should neither be surprising nor doubted.

Dr. Mercola presumably has researchers and allies that aid him in producing reports and analysis like the one above. What Mercola is apparently doing is painting an important picture that some have been warning about for years or even decades.

Among those who issued a parallel statement that confirms that concern is none other than Warren Buffett.




Ronald Reagan quipped that the most frightening words in the English language are wrapped around the notion of government helping. Per the Reagan Foundation, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help.”

America became great not because of big government or giant corporations. The Revolutionary War was on several levels premised against those notions. By winning their independence from England, Americans staked their claim to the notion that We the People should be able to do the honest work that the people themselves chose to do. Incrementally, in steady steps, that ideal has been undermined until what exists today is more frightening to some freedom lovers than what the colonists rebelled against.

Paraphrasing Ronald Reagan, he said that if facism ever comes to America it will come from the political left. Reagan began his career as a Democrat, and ended it as a two-term president who was one of the most famous Republicans of the 20th century.

Reagan’s point about facism coming to America is being echoed by another lifelong Democrat and others who came from or still do lean left. Formerly with the Washington Post, Joel Kotkin has been increasingly warning about the threat from the left and what he says is a parallel to the rise of facism in Germany, Italy, and Japan pre-World War II.



Pre-election and post-election, attorney turned award-winning journalist (and liberal) investigative reporter Glenn Greenwald has sounded the alarm on the takeover of much of the Democratic Party by the financial powers that includes the brands Dr. Mercola is mentioning.



These are not just voices from the left sounding the warning, apparently against their own political roots. That is a sign of integrity, to challenge your own ‘team’ or historic interests in exposing something that is apparently wrong, corrupt, and at times arguably wildly illegal. There are centrists and those on the right who have made a similar argument for decades. Nor is it that just Democrats have been infected. Clearly, there have been Republicans like the Bush family that could be lumped into that category too. Or as MHProNews has noted, there are DINOs, RINOs, and now there is arguably a CINO and PINO in the White House.

We are living in a dystopian era. There is “a tapestry of lies” as Edward Curtin has described it. That tapestry of lies has for too long bamboozled tens of millions of Americans. It was a blizzard of lies that took America into Iraq and Afghanistan during the Republican administration of George W. Bush. It was a tapestry of lies that kept Americans there during the Democratic President Barack Obama and V.P. Joe Biden years. The Trump plan to withdraw from Afghanistan was fought tooth and nail by the military-spy-industrial complex. That same military-industrial-spy complex has contradicted aspects of what Biden has told Americans in two different press ‘briefings.’ In fairness, there is a blizzard of lies occurring in other countries. New Zealand, for example, just went back into lockdown over a single new case of COVID19. That’s madness. Covid19 is real. The Wuhan Coronavirus is simply not as lethal as it has been hyped. A medical tyranny is being driven by often weaponized reports that are a blend of truth and lies, a type of paltering. If reporting out of New York City (NYC) is true, then it is not just people on the right who are objecting to arguably unconstitutional vaccine passports. Per reports, most blacks in NYC are unvaccinated. Per polling, most blacks vote Democratic. So, there are reasons to believe that there are numbers of those on the left and right who for whatever reason reject the necessity of taking an experimental jab that is only authorized for “emergency use.”




Decades ago, the John Birch Society (JBS) warned about the Trilateral Commission and Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), two groups from which members of both major parties often came from those ranks. “The Birchers” were mocked as conspiracy theorists. Never mind that much of what they said was well documented, again, noting that no merely human source is perfect.

Fast forward to the Davos era. Billionaires, corporate, and political leaders, would make their annual trek to discuss their common interests and move toward globalization. Don’t look too carefully, but part of the ‘global order’ is the World Health Organization (WHO), which failed the world badly by not listening to early warnings from Taiwan, and possibly others about the COVID19 virus spreading in Communist China. Of course, those who rail on about Davos are mocked by certain talking heads in mainstream media or their political allies.


These items are almost a year old, but exemplify that what is happening in the U.S. is occurring in other ‘western’ nations too. Is that coincidence? Why is it that Sweden has done better than many by taking a herd immunity stance than many nations who locked down and hurt hundreds of millions in the lower and middle classes? Follow the facts, use reason, look at the trends. What is apparent when viewed objectively is that the technocrats, largely but not only from the left, have proven that they are incompetent OR that they are deliberately failing at their stated mission. Trillions of dollars are spent every year to ‘solve’ problems that do not get solved. Meanwhile, a small percentage of elites benefit. What more evidence is needed that this left-leaning cabal is working for their own interests, and not that of the nation or nations at large?
What would be the motivation to do this? The argument can be made, as RJ Kennedy Jr and others have done, is that this ‘pandemic’ is making a few people wildly wealthier. It is eliminating competitors. It puts millions at greater financial and economic risk, who then in turn often look to government for help.

There is no more evidence needed that much of big government and globalization are seriously flawed and corrupt. The Boston Globe, a pro-Biden and pro-Democratic publication made the case earlier this week that Biden has blown his own credibility. This is what their statement emailed to MHProNews said.



After the chaotic retreat from Afghanistan, the Biden presidency — premised on competency — will never be the same | Analysis  

From the moment President Biden entered the White House his team has tried to brand the presidency as one built on competence and empathy.

Over the weekend, as the Taliban retook control over Afghanistan, critics of Biden have found a major counterpoint to all the competence talk. As the Taliban swept into Kabul with stunning speed and Americans and allies on the ground retreated for safety, the Biden administration looked anything but competent.” – So said James Pindell for The Boston Globe.

The Globe made an apt point. The Biden team’s campaign was premised on competency. The Biden-Harris campaign was sold as uniting Americans, when it has fueled the racial and other divides since taking office.

It was over 130 years ago, during the Gilded Age and Robber Baron era that “Senator John Sherman put it, “If we will not endure a king as a political power we should not endure a king over the production, transportation, and sale of any of the necessaries of life.” Congress passed the Sherman Antitrust Act almost unanimously in 1890, and it remains the core of antitrust policy.”

The answer to these vexing issues must include breaking up what used to be called “the trusts.” The Free Dictionary describes monopolizers like this. “1. To acquire or maintain a monopoly of. 2. To dominate or use to the exclusion of others…”

That some are working to monopolize our society is near the heart of much that has gone wrong in America and numerous nations around the world.

Stopping the “Monopolizers” – the Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, George Soros, et al class – is near the core of fixing a rigged and corrupt system. MHLivingNews reported about a year ago that the financial elites were profiting during this outbreak, while smaller firms were often getting crushed.



Is that a mere coincidence that those who wanted Biden-Harris in office also were profiting from a contagion that is real, but is nevertheless been documented to have been overhyped and mishandled from the outset?



The good news is that in steady steps, Americans across left and right appear to be awakening to these realities.

MHProNews spotlights granular issues in manufactured housing, but also takes a periodic look at macro issues too. This is to set the concerns of our industry into a broader context. In order to solve our industry’s problems, good existing laws must be properly enforced. There is no
need to wait years for legislation that in the past has often led to little or no discernable benefit.

They often have entirely different proposed solutions, but they each have pointed to several of the same facts. Once the basic facts are understood, then the causes and cures become more clear. Monopolists in the late 20th and early 21st century are primarily, but not exclusively, from the left. President Trump was an imperfect vessel, but so are all politicos. Much of what he said and did in office was demonstrably correct. The first 7 months of the Biden regime are proving that point day by day.
Quote from a 1996 interview with former Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown. The concerns over a ‘rigged system’ are not new.


During the post-World War II ear, when leaders like Democratic President Harry S. Truman or Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower were in office, the working and middle class experienced a significant boost. During those years, roughly through the 1960s and somewhat beyond, a man could feed, shelter and clothe an often larger family then without his wife working. Roughly following the period when American oligarchs began shifting production overseas, the interests of the working and middle class became steadily eroded.
When push came to shove, AG William “Bill” Barr did not stand with President Trump on the controversial 2020 election fraud issue. That said, Barr’s statement above is demonstrably true. The capital that flowed into China that built their economy was often U.S. money, and those of corresponding ‘western’ capitalist nations.

Senator Mike Lee (UT-R) has accused the Biden team of implementing policies that harm the poorest and middle class more while enriching the wealthy. Weeks before others in the mainstream media began to flash their ‘inflation warnings,’ MHProNews added first the top, then later the second notice above. When someone has even a basic understanding of the principles of economics, ‘inflation’ was predictable. The question is, will hyper-inflation follow? There are voices on both sides of that debate.
