***Authors note*** This may be long for some readers but consider this. It took me a week of researching and three days to write this. So an hour or so of reading time is inconsequential in comparison to the importance of you learning these facts.
Okay, I’ll admit it, I’ve been holding back on you. I’ve been talking about the abuse of power and the loss of rights, (which are all quite serious issues), but I have not been telling you the whole truth. I figured that it was difficult enough to get you interested in the simple fact that our government is overstepping the limits imposed upon it by the Constitution and infringing upon your rights. It was logical for me to conclude that if you wouldn’t believe, or care about that then you definitely wouldn’t believe what I’m about to tell you.
If you have been reading my articles then you have heard me use the terms shadow government and you have also heard me call our representatives puppets for men behind the scenes who really run things in this country. Well, if you can handle it, I’m about to try to explain who these people are, how you have become their slaves, and how long this battle has been going on.
Before I begin you have to understand what it means to be really and truly free. Freedom is not just the ability to do and say whatever you will. Freedom also means to be free of any control over yourself and your property. To be free what you own must be yours and yours alone. Just to give you a quick example, if you take out a loan for a car who is it that owns that car? Do you? Try not paying back the loan and see how long you retain possession of that car. The bank owns it until you pay it off. You might think you are free to do certain things, but you are not free from debt. Keep that thought in mind as we go along.
Going back to before the time of the American Revolution there has been a battle going on between those who wished to see this country free and those who wished to see it enslaved. By enslaved I don’t mean in shackles, instead I mean enslaved to bankers who profit from your labor like parasites.
If you remember anything about the causes for the American Revolution it will probably be the saying ‘taxation without representation.’ Sure, that was one of the things that upset the colonists, but it wasn’t the only thing. Jefferson listed many of the grievances in the Declaration of Independence, but it was Ben Franklin we must turn to if we want to know what the final straw was the led to the colonists seeking independence.
Prior to the initiation of hostilities between England and the colonies Franklin was in England and was asked how the colonies were able to collect the taxes required to care for the poor. Franklin answered that “We have no poor houses in the Colonies, and if we had, we would have no one to put in them, as in the Colonies there is not a single unemployed man, no poor and no vagabonds.”
The English were astounded and asked how that was possible, to which Franklin responded, “It is because, in the Colonies, we issue our own paper money. We call it Colonial Script, and we issue only enough to move all goods freely from the producers to the Consumers; and as we create our money, we control the purchasing power of money, and have no interest to pay.”
It was shortly thereafter that Parliament passed a series of Currency Acts limiting the Colonies ability to print their own money. This, according to Franklin, was the real cause of the Revolutionary War, “The refusal of King George 3rd to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, was probably the prime cause of the revolution.”
That is why, when our Founders drafted the Constitution, they implicitly made it the power of Congress to coin money. They wanted to ensure that we would never be beholden to, as Madison called them, the money changers. But even in the very beginning of our republics existence there were those who felt that the English version of things was better for America than the vision proposed by men like Jefferson and Madison. These people also felt that it was best for America to be indebted to the banks rather than have the ability to produce its own currency.
Chief among those who favored a national debt and a central bank to issue and control our currency was Alexander Hamilton, whose face now graces our ten dollar bill. It is said by some that he was an agent of the bankers, particularly the Rothschilds, but regardless of whether that the difference of opinion between him and Jefferson in regards to currency, debt, and the scope and powers of government were what led to the formation of the first political parties in America.
Before I go any further I need to make clear that when I say ‘bank’ I’m not talking about your local branch of Bank of America. These are mere holding facilities and distribution centers for the big banking houses that control the flow of money in this country, and the biggest banking house in the country, the Federal Reserve Bank. But more on that later.
As good a man as our first president was, did not heed the warnings of his Secretary of State, (Thomas Jefferson) and his Attorney General, Edmund Randolph who felt a national bank was unconstitutional, instead Washington followed the advice of Hamilton and signed into law a bill creating the First Bank of the United States. By the end of its twenty year charter our nation’s economy was in a shambles and Congress declared its intention to go back to a state issued value based currency in which the people paid no interest to the bankers.
This enraged Nathan Rothschild who demanded, “Either the application for renewal of the charter is granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war.” Congress still refused to renew the charter to which Rothschild declared, “Teach those impudent Americans a lesson! Bring them back to colonial status!”
At the time this was happening the Prime Minister of Britain, Spencer Perceval was opposed to war with the U.S. because most of his military was engaged in the Napoleonic War. He was concerned that if England went to war with the U.S. they might not prevail. Fortunately, or was it more than coincidence, Perceval was assassinated and replaced by Robert Banks Jenkinson who was supportive of war with the U.S. Subsequently we found ourselves engaged in the War of 1812 and although we won the war we found ourselves in so much debt that we established the Second Bank of the United States.
Who was this Nathan Rothschild, a man so impudent as to demand to the United States that it renew the charter for the national bank? Nathan Rothschild was one of the five sons of Mayer Rothschild. Mayer Rothschild was a prominent Jewish banker who spread his empire by establishing his five sons as heads of major banks in Frankfurt, Vienna, London, Naples and Paris.
I could go on and on about how the Rothschild’s influenced affairs across the globe but much of what is written about them is so secretive that it is hard to substantiate. There are but three things you really need to know about the Rothschild family. First is that unlike many banks of the time the Rothschild banks were impervious to attacks upon their wealth. The way in which their assets were held and distributed placed them beyond the reach of angry mobs and almost beyond the reach of monarchs.
Secondly, the Rothschild family were very secretive about their wealth. Today when we think of someone who is super rich the names Bill Gates or Warren Buffet come to mind. But the Rothschild’s make these guys look like paupers in comparison to the extent of their wealth.
And finally, this is the most important thing to remember about them, Mayer Amschel Rothschild declared, “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws.” Now why is that particular quote so important? Well what is a bank? Is it simply someplace you deposit your money for them to hold until you need it? How could it profit if that were the case? No, a bank is a lending agency that loans money out, at interest, to others. And who borrows and spends the most money? Why governments. So if a bank can control the money of a country, it can control the country. As long as the government remains indebted to the banks it will do their bidding. It is that simple.
So, at the time in history when America gained its independence, and its ability to coin its own money, the Rothschild family had its tentacles spread over most of Europe, controlling the money supply, and therefore the governments of, most of the European nations. If America could prosper without a central bank issuing, controlling, AND profiting from its currency, then it posed a serious threat to all the central banks across Europe.
That is why, years later during the Civil War, when Abraham Lincoln decided to print his own money, (Greenbacks), the London Times reported, “If this mischievous financial policy, which has its origin in North America, shall become endurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce, It will become prosperous without precedent in the history of the world. The brains, and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That country must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”
There you have it, their end game, to destroy us economically so as to keep us perpetually in debt so that they can profit from our suffering. James Madison warned us that “History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance.”
America had been brought to heel once again and had its Second Bank of the United States. But then along comes Andrew Jackson, who is the ONLY president in our nation’s history to completely pay off its national debt. Jackson knew the dangers of being enslaved to banks and it was he who called them a den of vipers.
Jackson was successful in defeating the central banks, but our nation was not without its monetary problems in the subsequent period free from a National Bank. However, public mistrust over central banks, and banks in general. made it a tough sell for the re-establishment of any kind of banking institution to create and control our nation’s monetary supply. That is until 1913.
Before I continue, have you ever heard of the Hegelian Dialect? It can be described in many ways, but the description I have found works best is that if you want to accomplish something that the people are generally against you have to find a way to force them into accepting it willingly. So what you do is you create a crisis of some kind. When the people become panicked enough they will demand that something be done to alleviate the crisis. That is when you offer your proposal, one which they would never have accepted were it not for the crisis. Then they willingly accept what you offer because it solves the problem.
The Hegelian Dialect, if you look at things, can be applied to almost anything that is going on around you today. They want to pass stricter gun control laws, create more instances, or at least maximize the coverage of violent shootings so that people fear guns. Then they will accept stricter gun laws. You want to take a nation to war, create fear about a supposed boogie man; be it Saddam Hussein and WMD’s in Iraq or ISIS right now in Syria. Create enough fear the people will support a war anywhere.
Well prior to 1913 the bankers had no control over our nation’s monetary supply. They had to find a way back in so they could once again profit from the debt they created. Enter their use of the Hegelian Dialect. In 1907 Paul Warburg published an article in the NY Times that cautioned Americans to reinstate a central bank to ward off any bank runs, and subsequent crashes of our financial system. This placed the seed of an idea into the minds of the American people. They were yet loathe to do so, but the idea had been planted. Now all they needed was a crisis to prove that they were right, America needed a central bank to stabilize its currency.
Soon enough they got it. When the panic of 1907 came along fueled by a short selling scheme on the stock of United Copper the stock market went into turmoil. Investment brokers friendly to J.P. Morgan and Paul Warburg began yanking their money out of Wall Street causing stock prices to drop almost 50%. Enter J.P. Morgan who, along with a few friends, offered to infuse the system with their own private funds to stabilize the situation. But the damage had been done, and it had all been planned beforehand. The people were now frightened and demanding something be done. Hence, the Creature from Jekyll Island.
In the wake of the panic of 1907 Congress established a commission to determine a means to prevent further such economic crises. At the head of this commission was one Nelson Aldrich, who coincidentally was also friends with Morgan and Warburg. Aldrich toured Europe for almost two years studying their central banking systems, spending millions in the process, and yet never filed a report of his findings.
It wasn’t until 1910 that Aldrich gathered together his little coterie of scoundrels and held a conference at Jekyll Island. Among those who attended this meeting were; Abraham Piatt Andrew, Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury; Frank Vanderlip, president of the National City Bank of New York who represented the Rockefellers; Paul Warburg, whose family also represented the Rothschilds in Europe and who had just 3 years prior called for another central bank in America; Benjamin Strong and Henry Davidson of J.P. Morgan Company along with Charles Norton the head of Morgan’s First National Bank of New York. These powerful men represented almost a quarter of the wealth of the entire planet, and they all gathered together to formulate a plan for America.
What they came up with was the blueprint for the Federal Reserve System. Knowing that the people still harbored distrust over central banks they called it the Federal Reserve to give people the impression that it was government owned and operated, but it would be anything but that. The Federal Reserve may have its Chairman selected by the President, but that is as close to being a federal institution as it gets.
When Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act it created another central bank that not only produced our nation’s currency, but also regulated its value by the amount of currency it introduces into the economy and by the raising and lowering of interest rates.
To ensure its passage the Federal Reserve Act was voted upon when many of the members of Congress were away from our nation’s capital during the Christmas recess. Even so it was not without opposition. Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh Sr. stated, “This [Federal Reserve Act] establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President [Wilson] signs this bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be legalized…the worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill.”
Years after signing the bill, President Wilson would regret his decision and state, “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”
A decade after its passage Congressman Louis T. McFadden would argue, “The Federal Reserve banks are one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever seen. There is not a man within the sound of my voice who does not know that this nation is run by the International bankers.”
Although it may sound like the FED has all this money sitting around that they loan out, they have no reserves, they create money out of thin air; “When you or I write a check there must be sufficient funds in our account to cover the check, but when the Federal Reserve writes a check there is no bank deposit on which that check is drawn. When the Federal Reserve writes a check, it is creating money.” This from the Boston Federal Reserve Bank.
Why is this such a crime? Well listen to the words of Sir Josiah Stamp, who was director of England’s central bank for years, “Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of Bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits.”
Not only did they create a banking monstrosity that is able to depreciate the value of the money in your wallet but they also decided to put the people of this country on the hook for the money loaned to our government by this evil entity. During the same year the Federal Reserve Act was signed into law the Constitution of the United States was amended to allow for the government to tax your earnings to pay for its services and pay off the national debt. Prior to the ratification of the 16th Amendment in 1913 your income was not taxable, 100% of it was yours to keep.
Now, not only do they tax your earnings, the value of your money continues to decrease, meaning that it takes more of these Federal Reserve Notes to buy things. It is not that the price of goods has gone up so much as it is the spending power of the money you earn has gone down. That is the true nature of inflation. They could always print more money and pay you more, but all that will do is cause the value of that money to go down even further, requiring that you pay more of it for the same goods. That is inflation.
What is the consequence of the money you earn not being enough to buy the things you desire? You borrow. The more debt you own the more the banks profit from your suffering. Its’ not just private debt that these people worry about, it is government debt as well. Your personal debt only ensures that you remain in servitude to them to pay your bills, but it is government debt where they hit the jackpot. And what is the one thing governments do that cost the most? Simple, go to war. If you took the time to research our nation’s history you will find that after every war our country was deeply in debt.
Every so often you see a glimmer of the truth in Hollywood movies. In the film the International there is one such moment. The character Umberto Calvini is explaining to Clive Owens and Naomi Watts the nature of banking. In the film he states, “The IBBC is a bank. Their objective isn’t to control the conflict, it’s to control the debt that the conflict produces. You see, the real value of a conflict, the true value, is in the debt that it creates. You control the debt, you control everything. You find this upsetting, yes? But this is the very essence of the banking industry, to make us all, whether we be nations or individuals, slaves to debt.”
Smedley D. Butler was a Major General in the United States Marines who is famous for writing a book describing how war is a racket. From it I quote, “I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints.”
If you look beyond what you are taught in history about the wars this country has undergone since the passage of the Federal Reserve Act you might find yourself questioning the justification for the United States becoming involved in any of them.
Prior to World War I Germany was becoming an economic power that threatened the economic stability of Europe, particularly England. This jeopardized the Bank of England. When the National Socialists, (NAZI’s) came into power the first thing they did was to issue their own currency, not that printed by a central bank. Muammar Gaddafi threatened to sell oil to whomever would buy it not using U.S. dollars and threatened the stability of the dollar as a global economy.
Even during our own Civil War the banking interests of Europe supported the Confederates in the hope that they would defeat the North and put an end to Lincoln issuing his greenbacks. Lincoln himself said, “The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. The banking powers are more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. They denounce as public enemies all who question their methods or throw light upon their crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe. [As a most undesirable consequence of the war...] Corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow. The money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed.”
Now I’m not saying these are the only reasons we have gone to war, but they certainly are worth considering when it comes to our current discussion.
Unfortunately this was not the extent of the damage done to our Republic. These bankers had lost two opportunities to control a great nation’s monetary system, they weren’t about to lose it again. For them to retain control over our country via their control over our economy they must also control the government and the information the people are told about what is happening around them.
United States Congressman Oscar Calloway, (D) from Texas told us how they gained control over the news we are being told, “In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press. … They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.”
I have talked about this before in prior articles, I only show this quote to provide you with the name J.P. Morgan again to show that these people are all working together in a systematic plan to completely control this country. How they achieved control over our government is a bit more lengthy a discussion.
Up until this point I have reserved my discussion to the economic control over our country. Yet these people also control our government as well. You may think that since we still have an election process and that you can go to the polls and cast a vote for your choice of candidates that we have a free election as well. I’m here to tell you that isn’t so. They control that as well. Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter warned us, “The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes.” In 1954 Senator William Jenner declared, “Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system, another body representing another form of government, a bureaucratic elite which believes our Constitution is outmoded.”
The first attempt at control over us came at the end of World War One with the failed League of Nations which would exercise dominion over all sovereign member nations. When the bankers saw that America would not go for such a blatant attempt to subvert America’s sovereignty they tried something different, a more subtler approach.
It was suggested that a set of twin think tanks, groups who on the surface appear only to offer opinions on matters of global importance, be established, one in Britain and one in America. The one in Britain is called The Royal Institute of International Affairs and the one in the U.S. is called the Council on Foreign Relations, or CFR for short.
So, in July of 1921 the CFR came into being with some of its founding members being one J.P. Morgan, John Rockefeller, and Paul Warburg. Hmm, do those names sound vaguely familiar to you? Remember what Oscar Calloway said about how they gained control of the media, well the CFR was their modus operandi for gaining control of our government as well.
How they control our system is simple and explained by author Jonathan Vankin, “Since its founding… the CFR has been the preeminent intermediary between the world of high finance, big oil, corporate elitism, and the U.S. government. Its members slide smoothly into cabinet-level jobs in Republican and Democratic administrations. The policies promulgated in its quarterly journal, Foreign Affairs, become U.S. government policy.”
Just to give you a short list of some of these CFR members who are, or have been, in key positions in our government, here are a few names you may be familiar with: Timothy Geithner, Alan Greenspan, Henry Kissinger, Condoleeza Rice, Hillary Clinton, Supreme Court Justices Bader-Ginsberg and Breyer, George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, Dick Cheney. And getting back to what Oscar Calloway said about the media being controlled, the CFR also has members in key positions in the media as well. Katie Couric, Bill Moyers, Diane Sawyer, and Tom Brokaw are among a few of the news people we rely upon to tell us the truth who are CFR members.
These people infiltrate everything and exert their influence upon us through their members following the decisions they make, which we have no say in. They have key people in our higher education who dictate curriculum. They have people in the media who decide what slant on the news we get. They have people in both the Republican and Democrat party’s who decide which candidates get party support. They carefully select only the candidates who will remain loyal to their agenda, and what is their agenda?
Their agenda is nothing less than global control. They feel that we are too stupid to manage our own lives so they want to do it for us. They want to control us economically and legislatively via their representatives in our government. All they need us for is to keep the machinery running and to continue to remain in debt, feeding them money via the interest we pay upon that debt.
David Rockefeller said as much in the following quote, “For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as “internationalists” and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
In 1934 these people produced a civil servants book entitled ‘The Organizer’ wherein they said, “Capital must protect itself in every way…Debts must be collected and loans and mortgages foreclosed upon as soon as possible. When through a process of law the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and more easily governed by the strong arm of the law applied by the central power of leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. This is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming and imperialism of capitalism to govern the world. By dividing the people we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us except as teachers of the common herd.” That’s all we are to them, a herd of animals to be controlled and manipulated.
One more quote on their goal and I’ll close up. Carroll Quigley was Bill Clintons mentor and he once wrote, “The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank…sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world.”
So when I talk about freedom I am not only talking about your ability to freely exercise your God-given rights, but also freedom from debt to the bankers to whom you are slaves. You can go on believing that you are free, that you have a say in how your government runs, but if you want to learn the truth you are going to have to shed that illusion and begin investigating the truth. It is there, if you are willing to look for it.
If not you can continue to believe in the lie you are being told and wait until it all comes crashing down around you. And crashing down it will come. We cannot go on as a country continuing to amass such an enormous national debt, the whole while printing out more and more money to keep the economy afloat. At some point it has to crash, as all financial bubbles in the past have crashed. It’s only a matter of time as to when. Just think of having to pay $100 for a loaf of bread, meat, gas, and other things we now take for granted will be beyond our reach when the money we carry around becomes as worthless as toilet paper.
It happened in Germany during the Weimer Republic when the Mark became useless, and it happened once in America during the Great Depression, (which coincidentally happened after the creation of the Federal Reserve which was supposed to prevent such things). So don’t fool yourself into thinking all is hunky dory and that your money will retain its value forever. It won’t.
So you go ahead arguing about the things typically associated with being either conservative or liberal, while the whole time these issues are of no importance to those who really run things in this country. If you want to save our Republic you are going to have to face one fact, and one fact alone; that it is no longer ours, it is theirs. As former New York Mayor John Hylan stated in 1922, “The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities states and nation. At the head is a small group of banking houses generally referred to as ‘international bankers.’ This little coterie… run our government for their own selfish ends. It operates under cover of a self-created screen…[and] seizes…our executive officers… legislative bodies… schools… courts… newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.”
There you have it, the whole truth, the truth I have not been telling you. Now it’s up to you to either decide whether you are going to research what I said and learn that I have not been lying to you or go back to believing the lies you are being told. Or as Morpheus so eloquently told Neo in The Matrix, “You take the blue pill―the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill―you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”
Just keep this in mind, Henry Ford, the automaker, once said, “It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”
Now why would he say that unless what was going on was a danger to our republic and to you?
Think about these things, I know it is a lot of information but it is vital to our survival as a free country that you do so.
