ALL WARS ARE BANKERS’ WARS!
By Michael Rivero
“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 a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes
like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But
if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits.”
— Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain
its property and assets and all deposits and other funds entrusted to it shall be immune in time of peace and in time of
war from any measure such as expropriation, requisition, seizure, confiscation, prohibition or restriction of gold or currency
export or import, and any other measure.” — Article 10, Instrument of Foundation, Bank of International Settlements
I know many people
have a great deal of difficulty comprehending just how many wars are started for no other purpose than to force private
central banks onto nations, so let me share a few examples, so that you understand why the US Government is mired in so many
wars against so many foreign nations. There is ample precedent for this.
The United States fought the American Revolution primarily over King
George III’s Currency act, which forced the colonists to conduct their business only using printed bank notes borrowed
from the Bank of England at interest.
Benjamin Franklin, acting as the colonies’ representative to Britain, argued against this
move in 1763.
“You see, a legitimate government can both spend and lend money into circulation, while banks can only lend
significant amounts of their promissory bank notes, for they can neither give away nor spend but a tiny fraction of the
money the people need. Thus, when your bankers here in England place money in circulation, there is always a debt principal
to be returned and usury to be paid. The result is that you have always too little credit in circulation to give the workers
full employment. You do not have too many workers, you have too little money in circulation, and that [money] which circulates
all bears the endless burden of unpayable debt and usury…..In the Colonies, we issue our own money. It is called
Colonial Scrip [interest-free, wealth-based money issued by The Colonies 1750-1764 before Bank of England crooks made it
illegal]. We issue it in proper proportion to make the products pass easily from the producers to the consumers. In this
manner, creating ourselves our own paper money, we control its purchasing power, and we have no interest to pay to no one.”
The following year, King George III passed the Currency act which outlawed all forms of money in the colonies, forcing them
to conduct all commerce using bank notes borrowed at interest from the Bank of England!
“The bank hath benefit of interest on all moneys which it creates out of nothing.”
— William Paterson, founder of the Bank of England in 1694 After the revolution, the new United States adopted a radically
different economic system in which the government issued its own value-based money, so that private banks like the Bank of
England were not siphoning off the wealth of the people through interest-bearing bank notes.
“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.” — Benjamin Franklin, Founding Father
Following the revolution, the US Government actually
took steps to keep the bankers out of the new government!
“Any person holding any office or any stock in any institution
in the nature of a bank for issuing or discounting bills or notes payable to bearer or order, cannot be a member of the
House whilst he holds such office or stock.” — Third Congress of the United States Senate, 23rd of December,
1793, signed by the President, George Washington The First Bank of the United States
But bankers are nothing if not dedicated to their
schemes to acquire your wealth, and know full well how easy it is to corrupt a nation’s leaders.
Just one year after Mayer Amschel Rothschild had uttered his infamous “Let me issue and
control a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws”, the bankers succeeded in setting up a new Private
Central Bank called the First Bank of the United States, largely through the efforts of the Rothschild’s chief US
supporter, Alexander Hamilton.
Founded in 1791, by the end of its twenty year charter the First Bank of
the United States had almost ruined the nation’s economy, while enriching the bankers. Congress refused to renew the
charter and signaled their intention to go back to a state issued value based currency on which the people paid no interest
at all to any banker. This resulted in a threat from Nathan Mayer Rothschild against the US Government, “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 for the First Bank of the United States, whereupon Nathan Mayer Rothschild railed, “Teach
those impudent Americans a lesson! Bring them back to colonial status!” The British Prime Minister at the time, Spencer
Perceval was adamently opposed to war with the United States, primarily because the majority of England’s military
might was occupied with the ongoing Napoleonic wars. Spencer Perceval was concerned that Britain might not prevail in a
new American war, a concern shared by many in the British government. Then, Spencer Perceval was assassinated (the only
British Prime Minister to be assassinated in office) and replaced by Robert Banks Jenkinson, the 2nd Earl of Liverpool, who
was fully supportive of a war to recapture the colonies.
“If my sons
did not want wars, there would be none.” — Gutle Schnaper, wife of Mayer Amschel Rothschild and mother of his
at virtually no interest by the Rothschild controlled Bank of England, Britain then provoked the war of 1812 to recolonize
the United States and force them back into the slavery of the Bank of England, or to plunge the United States into so much
debt they would be forced to accept a new private central bank. And the plan worked. Even though the War of 1812 was won
by the United States, Congress was forced to grant a new charter for yet another private bank issuing the public currency
as loans at interest, the Second Bank of the United States. Once again, private bankers were in control of the nation’s
money supply and cared not who made the laws or how many British and American soldiers had to die for it.
Andrew Jackson and the Second Bank of the United States.
Once again the nation was plunged into debt, unemployment, and
poverty by the predations of the private central bank, and in 1832 Andrew Jackson successfully campaigned for his second
term as President under the slogan, “Jackson And No Bank!” True to his word, Jackson succeeded in blocking the
renewal of the charter for the Second Bank of the United States.
“Gentlemen! I too have been a close observer of the doings of
the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds
of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when
you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall
ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty
thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and
by the Eternal, (bringing his fist down on the table) I will rout you out!” — Andrew Jackson, shortly before
ending the charter of the Second Bank of the United States. From the original minutes of the Philadelphia committee of citizens
sent to meet with President Jackson (February 1834), according to Andrew Jackson and the Bank of the United States (1928)
by Stan V. Henkel
Shortly after President Jackson (the only American
President to actually pay off the National Debt) ended the Second Bank of the United States, there was an attempted assassination
which failed when both pistols used by the assassin, Richard Lawrence, failed to fire. Lawrence later said that with Jackson
dead, “Money would be more plenty.”
Following the loss of its charter, the Second Bank of the United States tried
to operate as a normal bank, but failed after just 5 years.
President Zachary Taylor
President Zachary Taylor opposed the creation of a new Private Central
Bank, owing to the historical abuses of the First and Second Banks of the United States.
“The idea of a national bank is dead, and will not be revived
in my time.” — Zachary Taylor Taylor died on July 9, 1850 after eating a bowl of cherries and milk rumored to
have been poisoned. The symptoms he displayed are consistent with acute arsenic poisoning.
President James Buchanan
President James Buchanan also opposed a private central bank. During the panic of 1857 he attempted
to set limits on banks issuing more loans than they had actual funds, and to require all issued bank notes to be backed
by Federal Government assets. He was poisoned with arsenic and survived, although 38 other people at the dinner died.
The public school
system is as subservient to the bankers’ wishes to keep certain history from you, just as the corporate media is subservient
to Monsanto’s wishes to keep the dangers of GMOs from you, and the global warming cult’s wishes to conceal from
you that the Earth has actually been cooling for the last 16 years. Thus is should come as little surprise that much of
the real reasons for the events of the Civil War are not well known to the average American.
“The few who understand the system will
either be so interested in its profits or be so dependent upon its favours that there will be no opposition from that class,
while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital
derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is
inimical to their interests.” — The Rothschild brothers of London writing to associates in New York, 1863
When the Confederacy seceded from the United States, the
bankers once again saw the opportunity for a rich harvest of debt, and offered to fund Lincoln’s efforts to bring
the south back into the union, but at 30% interest. Lincoln remarked that he would not free the black man by enslaving the
white man to the bankers and using his authority as President, issued a new government currency, the greenback. This was
a direct threat to the wealth and power of the central bankers, who quickly responded.
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.” — The London Times responding to Lincoln’s decision to
issue government Greenbacks to finance the Civil War, rather than agree to private banker’s loans at 30% interest.
In 1872 New York bankers sent a letter to every bank in the United States, urging them to fund newspapers that opposed government-issued
money (Lincoln’s greenbacks).
“Dear Sir: It is advisable to do all in your power to sustain such prominent daily and
weekly newspapers… as will oppose the issuing of greenback paper money, and that you also withhold patronage or favors
from all applicants who are not willing to oppose the Government issue of money. Let the Government issue the coin and the
banks issue the paper money of the country… [T]o restore to circulation the Government issue of money, will be to
provide the people with money, and will therefore seriously affect your individual profit as bankers and lenders.”
— Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler
“It will not do to allow the greenback, as it is called, to circulate as money any length of time,
as we cannot control that.” — Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by
“Slavery is likely to be abolished by the war power,
and chattel slavery destroyed. This, I and my European friends are in favor of, for slavery is but the owning of labor and
carries with it the care for the laborer, while the European plan, led on by England, is for capital to control labor by
controlling the wages. THIS CAN BE DONE BY CONTROLLING THE MONEY.” — Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American
public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler
Goaded by the private bankers,
much of Europe supported the Confederacy against the Union, with the expectation that victory over Lincoln would mean the
end of the Greenback. France and Britain considered an outright attack on the United States to aid the confederacy, but were
held at bay by Russia, which had just ended the serfdom system and had a state central bank similar to the system the United
States had been founded on.
Left free of European
intervention, the Union won the war, and Lincoln announced his intention to go on issuing greenbacks.Following Lincoln’s
assassination, the Greenbacks were pulled from circulation and the American people forced to go back to an economy based
on bank notes borrowed at interest from the private bankers. Tsar Alexander II, who authorized Russian military assistance
to Lincoln, was subsequently the victim of multiple attempts on his life in 1866, 1879, and 1880, until his assassination
the end of Lincoln’s Greenbacks, the US could no longer create its own interest free money and was manipulated during
the term of President Ruthford B. Hayes into borrowing from the Rothschilds banking system in 1878, restoring to the Rothschilds
control of the US economy they had lost under Andrew Jackson.
Messrs. Rothschild & Sons to Mr. Sherman.
Hon. John Sherman,
Secretary of the Treasury, Washington D. C.:
Very pleased we have entered into relations again with American Government.
Shall do our best to make the business successful.
President James Garfield
James A. Garfield was elected President in 1880
on a platform of government control of the money supply.
“The chief duty of the National Government in connection with the currency
of the country is to coin money and declare its value. Grave doubts have been entertained whether Congress is authorized
by the Constitution to make any form of paper money legal tender. The present issue of United States notes has been sustained
by the necessities of war; but such paper should depend for its value and currency upon its convenience in use and its prompt
redemption in coin at the will of the holder, and not upon its compulsory circulation. These notes are not money, but promises
to pay money. If the holders demand it, the promise should be kept. — James Garfield
“By the experience of commercial nations in all ages it has been found that gold and silver afford
the only safe foundation for a monetary system. Confusion has recently been created by variations in the relative value
of the two metals, but I confidently believe that arrangements can be made between the leading commercial nations which
will secure the general use of both metals. Congress should provide that the compulsory coinage of silver now required by
law may not disturb our monetary system by driving either metal out of circulation. If possible, such an adjustment should
be made that the purchasing power of every coined dollar will be exactly equal to its debt-paying power in all the markets
of the world. –James Garfield
“He who controls the money supply
of a nation controls the nation. — James Garfield
Garfield was shot on July 2, 1881 and died of
his wounds several weeks later. Chester A. Arthur succeeded Garfield as President.
President William McKinley
In 1896, William McKinley was elected President
in the middle of a depression-driven debate over gold-backed government currency versus bank notes borrowed at interest
from private banks. McKinley favored gold-backed currencies and a balanced government budget which would free the public
from accumulating debt.
“Our financial system needs some revision; our money is all good now, but its value must not further be threatened.
It should all be put upon an enduring basis, not subject to easy attack, nor its stability to doubt or dispute. Our currency
should continue under the supervision of the Government. The several forms of our paper money offer, in my judgment, a constant
embarrassment to the Government and a safe balance in the Treasury.” — William McKinley
McKinley was shot by an out-of-work anarchist on September 14, 1901, in Buffalo, NY, succumbing
to his wounds a few days later. He was suceeded in office by Theodore Roosevelt.
The Aldrich Plan
1910, Senator Nelson Aldrich, Frank Vanderlip of National City (Citibank), Henry Davison of Morgan Bank, and Paul Warburg
of the Kuhn, Loeb Investment House met secretly on Jekyll Island, Georgia, to formulate a plan for a US central bank, and
created the Aldrich Plan, which called for a system of fifteen regional central banks, openly and directly controlled by
Wall Street commercial banks. These banks would have the legal ability to create mnoney out of thin air and represented
an attempt to create a new Bank of the United States. Public reaction was swift.
Do to the intense public opposition to the Aldrich Plan, the measure
was defeated in the House of Representaives in 1912. One year later the bankers would be back!
The Third Bank of the United States,
aka The Federal Reserve
Following the defeat of the Aldrich Plan, in 1913, the Private Central Bankers of Europe, in
particular the Rothschilds of Great Britain and the Warburgs of Germany, met with their American financial collaborators
once again on Jekyll Island, Georgia to form a new banking cartel with the express purpose of forcing the United States to
accept a private central bank, with the aim of placing complete control of the United States money supply once again under
the control of private bankers. Owing to hostility over the previous banks, the name was changed from the Third Bank of
the United Statesto “The Federal Reserve” system in order to grant the new bank a quasi-governmental image, but
in fact it is a privately owned bank, no more “Federal” than Federal Express.
The Federal Reserve; it is neither “Federal”
nor does it have any actual “Reserves”, creating as it does money out of thin air. – Click for larger
image In 2012, the Federal Reserve attempted to rebuff a Freedom of Information Lawsuit by Bloomberg News on the grounds
that as a private banking corporation and not actually a part of the government, the Freedom of Information Act did not
apply to the “trade secret” operations of the Federal Reserve.
“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.” — From the Boston Federal Reserve
Bank pamphlet, “Putting it Simply.”
“Neither paper currency nor deposits have value as commodities.
Intrinsically, a ‘dollar’ bill is just a piece of paper. Deposits are merely book entries.” — “Modern
Workbook” – Federal Reserve of Chicago, 1975
“I am afraid the ordinary citizen will not like to be told that the banks can
and do create money. And they who control the credit of the nation direct the policy of Governments and hold in the hollow
of their hand the destiny of the people.” — Reginald McKenna, as Chairman of the Midland Bank, addressing stockholders
“States, most especially the large hegemonic ones, such as
the United States and Great Britain, are controlled by the international central banking system, working through secret
agreements at the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), and operating through national central banks (such as the Bank
of England and the Federal Reserve)… The same international banking cartel that controls the United States today
previously controlled Great Britain and held it up as the international hegemon. When the British order faded, and was replaced
by the United States, the US ran the global economy. However, the same interests are served. States will be used and discarded
at will by the international banking cartel; they are simply tools.” — Andrew Gavin Marshall
The 16th Amendment and the Income Tax
1913 proved to be a transformative year for the nation’s economy, first with the passage
of the 16th “income tax” Amendment and the false claim that it had been ratified.
“I think if you were to go back and and
try to find and review the ratification of the 16th amendment, which was the internal revenue, the income tax, I think if
you went back and examined that carefully, you would find that a sufficient number of states never ratified that amendment.”
– U.S. District Court Judge James C. Fox, Sullivan Vs. United States, 2003. Later that same year, and apparently unwilling
to risk another questionable amendment, Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act over Christmas holiday 1913, while members
of Congress opposed to the measure were at home. This was a very underhanded deal, as the Constitution explicitly vests
Congress with the authority to issue the public currency, does not authorize its delegation, and thus should have required
a new Amendment to transfer that authority to a private bank. But pass it Congress did, and President Woodrow Wilson signed
it as he promised the bankers he would in exchange for generous campaign contributions.
Wilson’s signing the Federal Reserve
Act. Under the Constitution, only a new Amendment could transfer the government’s authority to create the currency
to a private party.
Woodrow Wilson later regretted that decision.
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great
industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit. We are 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.”
— Woodrow Wilson 1919 to Thomas Edison
Thomas Edison, arguably the most brilliant man of the age, was also well aware of the
fraud of private central banks.
“People who will not turn a shovel full of dirt on the project
nor contribute a pound of material, will collect more money from the United States than will the People who supply all the
material and do all the work. This is the terrible thing about interest …But here is the point: If the Nation can
issue a dollar bond it can issue a dollar bill. The element that makes the bond good makes the bill good also. The difference
between the bond and the bill is that the bond lets the money broker collect twice the amount of the bond and an additional
20%. Whereas the currency, the honest sort provided by the Constitution pays nobody but those who contribute in some useful
way. It is absurd to say our Country can issue bonds and cannot issue currency. Both are promises to pay, but one fattens
the usurer and the other helps the People. If the currency issued by the People were no good, then the bonds would be no
good, either. It is a terrible situation when the Government, to insure the National Wealth, must go in debt and submit to
ruinous interest charges at the hands of men who control the fictitious value of gold.” — Thomas A. Edison
The War to End All Wars – WW1
The next year, World War One started, and it is important to remember that prior to the creation of the Federal
Reserve, there was no such thing as a world war.
War One started between Austria-Hungary and Serbia with the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand.
Franz Ferdinand's assassination triggered World War One
Although the war
started between Austria-Hungary and Serbia , it quickly shifted to focus on Germany, whose industrial capacity was seen as
an economic threat to Great Britain, who saw the decline of the British Pound as a result of too much emphasis on financial
activity to the neglect of agriculture, industrial development, and infrastructure (not unlike the present day United States).
Although pre-war Germany had a private central bank, it was heavily restricted and inflation kept to reasonable levels.
Under government control, investment was guaranteed to internal economic development, and Germany was seen as a major power.
So, in the media of the day, Germany was portrayed as the prime opponent of World War One, and not just defeated, but its
industrial base flattened. Following the Treaty of Versailles, Germany was ordered to pay the war costs of all the participating
nations, even though Germany had not actually started the war. This amounted to three times the value of all of Germany
itself. Germany’s private central bank, to whom Germany had gone deeply into debt to pay the costs of the war, broke
free of government control, and massive inflation followed (mostly triggered by currency speculators) , permanently trapping
the German people in endless debt.
When the Weimar Republic collapsed economically, it opened the door for the
National Socialists to take power. Their first financial move was to issue their own state currency which was not borrowed
from private central bankers. Freed from having to pay interest on the money in circulation, Germany blossomed and quickly
began to rebuild its industry. The media called it “The German Miracle”. TIME magazine lionized Hitler for the
amazing improvement in life for the German people and the explosion of German industry, and even named him TIME Magazine’s
Man Of The Year in 1938.
Once again, Germany’s industrial output became a threat to Great Britain.
merchandise (do business) again in the next 50 years we have led this war (WW1) in vain.” – Winston Churchill
in The Times (1919)
“We will force this war upon Hitler, if he wants it or not.” – Winston Churchill (1936 broadcast)
becomes too powerful. We have to crush it.” – Winston Churchill (November 1936 speaking to US – General
Robert E. Wood)
“This war is an English war and its goal is the destruction of Germany.” – Winston Churchill (-
Autumn 1939 broadcast)
Germany’s state-issued value based currency was also a direct threat to the wealth and power of the private
central banks, and as early as 1933 they started to organize a global boycott against Germany to strangle this upstart ruler
who thought he could break free of private central bankers!
As had been the case in World War One,
Great Britain and other nations threatened by Germany’s economic power looked for an excuse to go to war, and as public
anger in Germany grew over the boycott, Hitler foolishly gave them that excuse. Years later, in a spirit of candor, the
real reasons for that war were made clear.
“The war wasn’t only about abolishing fascism, but to conquer sales markets. We
could have, if we had intended so, prevented this war from breaking out without doing one shot, but we didn’t want
to.”- Winston Churchill to Truman (Fultun, USA March 1946)
“Germany’s unforgivable crime before WW2 was its attempt
to loosen its economy out of the world trade system and to build up an independent exchange system from which the world-finance
couldn’t profit anymore. …We butchered the wrong pig.” -Winston Churchill (The Second World War –
Marine Corps Major General Smedly Butler.
As a side note, we need to step back before WW2 and
recall Marine Major General Smedley Butler. In 1933, Wall Street bankers and financiers had bankrolled the successful coups
by both Hitler and Mussolini. Brown Brothers Harriman in New York was financing Hitler right up to the day war was declared
with Germany. And they decided that a fascist dictatorship in the United States based on the one on Italy would be far better
for their business interests than Roosevelt’s “New Deal” which threatened massive wealth re-distribution
to recapitalize the working and middle class of America. So the Wall Street tycoons recruited General Butler to lead the
overthrow of the US Government and install a “Secretary of General Affairs” who would be answerable to Wall Street
and not the people, would crush social unrest and shut down all labor unions. General Butler pretended to go along with
the scheme but then exposed the plot to Congress. Congress, then as now in the pocket of the Wall Street bankers, refused
to act. When Roosevelt learned of the planned coup he demanded the arrest of the plotters, but the plotters simply reminded
Roosevelt that if any one of them were sent to prison, their friends on Wall Street would deliberatly collapse the still-fragile
economy and blame Roosevelt for it. Roosevelt was thus unable to act until the start of WW2, at which time he prosecuted
many of the plotters under the Trading With The Enemy act. The Congressional minutes into the coup were finally declassified
in 1967, but rumors of the attempted coup became the inspiration for the movie, “Seven Days in May” but with
the true financial villains erased from the script.
“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service as a member
of our country’s most agile military force — the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from second
lieutenant to Major General. And during that period I spent more of my time being a high–class muscle man for Big
Business, for Wall Street and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. “I suspected
I was just a part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all members of the military profession I never had an
original thought until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders
of the higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service. Thus 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. The
record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-12.
I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that
the Standard Oil went its way unmolested. During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket.
I was rewarded with honors, medals and promotion. Looking back on it, I feel I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The
best he could do was to operate his racket in three city districts. I operated on three continents.” — General
Smedley Butler, former US Marine Corps Commandant,1935
Louis T. McFadden
Louis T. McFadden was a member of the House of Representatives in
the twenties and thirties. He was the chair of the House Banking and Currency Committee during the twenties. He used his
position in Congress occasionally to crusade against the Federal Reserve.
“Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt
institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal reserve banks. The Federal Reserve
Board, a Government board, has cheated the Government of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt.
The depredations and the iniquities of the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal reserve banks acting together have cost
this country enough money to pay the national debt several times over. This evil institution has impoverished and ruined
the people of the United States; has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through
defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Federal Reserve Board and through
the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.” — Louis T. McFadden, June 10, 1932
At one point McFadden
started impeachment proceedings against the entire board of the federal reserve. Not too surprisingly, there were three
attempts on McFadden’s life, one shooting and two poisonings, the second of which was cuccessful. Although still officially
declared as heart failure, newspapers of the time reported …
“Now that this sterling American patriot has made the Passing,
it can be revealed that not long after his public utterance against the encroaching powers of Judah, it became known among
his intimates that he had suffered two attacks against his life. The first attack came in the form of two revolver shots
fired at him from ambush as he was alighting from a cab in front of one of the Capital hotels. Fortunately both shots missed
him, the bullets burying themselves in the structure of the cab. “He became violently ill after partaking of food at
a political banquet at Washington. His life was only saved from what was subsequently announced as a poisoning by the presence
of a physician friend at the banquet, who at once procured a stomach pump and subjected the Congressman to emergency treatment.”
President John F. Kennedy
As President, John F. Kennedy understood the
predatory nature of private central banking. He understood why Andrew Jackson fought so hard to end the Second Bank of the
United States. So Kennedy wrote and signed Executive Order 11110 which ordered the US Treasury to issue a new public currency,
the United States Note.
Kennedy’s United States
Notes were not borrowed from the Federal Reserve but created by the US Government and backed by the silver stockpiles held
by the US Government. It represented a return to the system of economics the United States had been founded on, and was
perfectly legal for Kennedy to do. All told, some four and one half billion dollars went into public circulation, eroding
interest payments to the Federal Reserve and loosening their control over the nation. Five months later John F. Kennedy
was assassinated in Dallas Texas, and the United States Notes pulled from circulation and destroyed (except for samples
held by collectors).
J. McCloy, President of the Chase Manhattan Bank, and President of the World Bank, was named to the Warren Commission, presumably
to make certain the banking dimensions behind the assassination were concealed from the public.
As we enter the
eleventh year of what future history will most certainly describe as World War Three, we need to examine the financial dimensions
behind the wars.
Towards the end of World War Two, when it became obvious that the allies were going to win and dictate the post
war environment, the major world economic powers met at Bretton Woods, a luxury resort in New Hampshire in July of 1944,
and hammered out the Bretton Woods agreement for international finance. The British Pound lost its position as the global
trade and reserve currency to the US dollar (part of the price demanded by Roosevelt in exchange for the US entry into the
war). Absent the economic advantages of being the world’s “go-to” currency, Britain was forced to nationalize
the Bank of England in 1946. The Bretton Woods agreement, ratified in 1945, in addition to making the dollar the global
reserve and trade currency, obligated the signatory nations to tie their currencies to the dollar. The nations that ratified
Bretton Woods did so on two conditions. The first was that the Federal Reserve would refrain from over-printing the dollar
as a means to loot real products and produce from other nations in exchange for ink and paper; basically an imperial tax.
That assurance was backed up by the second requirement, which was that the US dollar would always be convertible to gold
at $35 per ounce.
The Federal Reserve, being a private bank and not answerable to the US Government,
did start overprinting paper dollars, and much of the perceived prosperity of the 1950s and 1960s was the result of foreign
nations’ obligations to accept the paper notes as being worth gold at the rate of $35 an ounce. Then in 1970, France
looked at the huge pile of paper notes sitting in their vaults, for which real French products like wine and cheese had
been traded, and notified the United States government that they would exercise their option under Bretton Woods to return
the paper notes for gold at the $35 per ounce exchange rate. The United States had nowhere near the gold to redeem the paper
notes, so on August 15th, 1971, Richard Nixon “temporarily” suspended the gold convertibility of the US Federal
Nixon announces the end of gold convertability
Later termed the “Nixon shock”, this
move effectively ended Bretton Woods and many global currencies started to delink from the US dollar.
Worse, since the United States had collateralized their loans with
the nation’s gold reserves, it quickly became apparent that the US Government did not in fact have enough gold to cover
the outstanding debts. Foreign nations began to get very nervous about their loans to the US and understandably were reluctant
to loan any additional money to the United States without some form of collateral. So Richard Nixon started the environmental
movement, with the EPA and its various programs such as “wilderness zones”, Roadless areas”, Heritage rivers”,
“Wetlands”, all of which took vast areas of public lands and made them off limits to the American people who
were technically the owners of those lands. But Nixon had little concern for the environment and the real purpose of this
land grab under the guise of the environment was to pledge those pristine lands and their vast mineral resources as collateral
on the national debt. The plethora of different programs was simply to conceal the true scale of how much American land was
being pledged to foreign lenders as collateral on the government’s debts; eventually almost 25% of the nation itself.
All of this is illegal as the Enclave Clause of the Constitution limits the Federal Government to owning the land under
Federal Government buildings and military bases, and that Enclave Clause was written into the Constitution by the Founding
Fathers specifically to prevent the Federal Government simply seizing the land belonging to the people to sell off, pledge
as collateral, or rent!
With open lands for collateral already in short
supply, the US Government embarked on a new program to shore up sagging international demand for the dollar. The United
States approached the world’s oil producing nations, mostly in the Middle East, and offered them a deal. In exchange
for only selling their oil for dollars, the United States would guarantee the military safety of those oil-rich nations.
The oil rich nations would agree to spend and invest their US paper dollars inside the United States, in particular in US
Treasury Bonds, redeemable through the slave labor of future generations of US taxpayers. The concept was labeled the “petrodollar”.
In effect, the US, no longer able to back the dollar with gold, was now backing it with oil. Other peoples’ oil. And
that necessity to keep control over those oil nations to prop up the dollar has shaped America’s foreign policy in
the region ever since.
But as America’s manufacturing and agriculture has declined, the oil producing nations faced a dilemma. Those
piles of US Federal Reserve notes were not able to purchase much from the United States because the United States had little
(other than real estate) anyone wanted to buy. Europe’s cars and aircraft were superior and less costly, while experiments
with GMO food crops led to nations refusing to buy US food exports. Israel’s constant belligerence against its neighbors
caused them to wonder if the US could actually keep their end of the petrodollar arrangement. Oil producing nations started
to talk of selling their oil for whatever currency the purchasers chose to use.
Saddam Hussein and the lie of Iraq’s
Iraq, already hostile to the United States following Desert Storm,
demanded the right to sell their oil for Euros in 2000 and in 2002, the United Nations agreed to allow it under the “Oil
for food” program instituted following Desert Storm. One year later the United States re-invaded Iraq under the lie
of Saddam’s nuclear weapons, lynched Saddam Hussein, and placed Iraq’s oil back on the world market only for
The clear US policy shift following 9-11, away from being an impartial broker of peace in the Mideast to one of
unquestioned support for Israel’s aggressions only further eroded confidence in the Petrodollar deal and even more
oil producing nations started openly talking of oil trade for other global currencies.
and the Gold Dinar
Over in Libya, Muammar Gaddafi had instituted a state-owned central bank and a value based trade currency, the Gold Dinar.
Gaddafi announced that Libya’s oil was
for sale, but only for the Gold Dinar. Other African nations, seeing the rise of the Gold Dinar and the Euro, even as the
US dollar continued its inflation-driven decline, flocked to the new Libyan currency for trade. This move had the potential
to seriously undermine the global hegemony of the dollar. French President Nicolas Sarkozy reportedly went so far as to call
Libya a “threat” to the financial security of the world. So, the United States invaded Libya, brutally murdered
Qaddafi ( the object lesson of Saddam’s lynching not being enough of a message, apparently), imposed a private central
bank, and returned Libya’s oil output to dollars only. The gold that was to have been made into the Gold Dinars, 144
tons of it, is as of last report, unaccounted for.
General Wesley Clark blows the whistle on US plans to conquer the oil-rich Middle East
According to General
Wesley Clark, the master plan for the “dollarification” of the world’s oil nations included seven targets,
Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran (Venezuela, which dared to sell their oil to China for the Yuan, is
a late addition). What is notable about the original seven nations originally targeted by the US is that none of them are
members of the Bank for International Settlements, the private central bankers private central bank, located in Switzerland.
This meant that these nations were deciding for themselves how to run their nations’ economies, rather than submit
to the international private banks.
Now the bankers’ gun sights are on Iran, which dares to have a government central bank
and sell their oil for whatever currency they choose. The war agenda is, as always, to force Iran’s oil to be sold
only for US dollars and to force them to accept a privately owned central bank. Malaysia, one of the few remaining nations
without a Rothschild central bank, is now being invaded by a force claimed to be “Al Qaeda” and has suffered
numerous suspicious losses of its commercial passenger jets.
With the death of President Hugo Chavez, plans to impose a US and
banker friendly regime on Venezuela are clearly being implemented.
So, just where is the gold?
gold bullion. Where is it? The German government recently asked for the return of some of their gold bullion from the Bank
of France and the New York Federal Reserve. France has said it will take 5 years to return Germany’s gold. The United
States has said they will need 8 years to return Germany’s gold. This suggests strongly that the Bank of France and
the NY Federal Reserve have used the deposited gold for other purposes, most likely to cover gold futures contracts used
to artificially suppress the price of gold to keep investors in the equities markets, and the Central Banks are scrambling
to find new gold to cover the shortfall and prevent a gold run. So it is inevitable that suddenly France invades Mali, ostensibly
to combat Al Qaeda, with the US joining in. Mali just happens to be one of the world’s largest gold producers with
gold accounting for 80% of Mali exports. War for the bankers does not get more obvious than that!
Mexico has demanded a physical audit of their
gold bullion stored at the Bank of England, and along with Venezuela’s vast oil reserves (larger than Saudi Arabia),
Venezuela’s gold mines are a prize lusted after by all the Central Banks that played fast and loose with other peoples’
gold bullion. So we can expect regime change if not outright invasion soon.
Can a bank foreclose on your house if they have provided nothing of
real value in the mortgage?
A little remembered footnote in banking history occurred in December 1968. A bank was moving to foreclose on a house,
and the homeowner decided to fight the foreclosure in court, arguing that contract law requires two contracting parties
to agree to swap two items of value, legally called the “consideration.” In the case of First National Bank
of Montgomery vs. Jerome Daly, Daly argued that since the bank simply wrote a number in a ledger to create the loaned money
out of think air, there was no real value and therefore no legally binding consideration. The lawyers for the bank admitted
that this is how the bank works. They create money out of thin air as a ledger or computer entry, which you must repay with
your labor. And there was no law in 1968 that specifically gave banks the legal right to do that. Daly argued that because
there was no equal consideration, the mortgage was null and void and the attempt to foreclose invalid. The jury agreed! So
did Judge Mahoney, who resisted demands to over-rule the jury in favor of the bank, and wrote a simple streightforward decision
that stated that there was no question that the mortgage contract was void because the claim that the bank simply made up
the money out of thin air was not disputed by the bank itself.
Judge Mahoney was murdered with poison less than six months later,
and the lawyer representing Daly was debarred. T
decision in favor of Daly was then nullified on procedural grounds and the entire matter forgotten!
been raised by a public school system and media that constantly assures you that the reasons for all these wars and assassinations
are many and varied. The US claims to bring democracy to the conquered lands (they haven’t; the usual result of a US
overthrow is the imposition of a dictatorship, such as the 1953 CIA overthrow of Iran’s democratically elected government
of Mohammad Mosaddeghand the imposition of the Shah, or the 1973 CIA overthrow of Chile’s democratically elected government
of President Salvador Allende, and the imposition of Augusto Pinochet), or to save a people from a cruel oppressor, revenge
for 9-11, or that tired worn-out catch all excuse for invasion, weapons of mass destruction. Assassinations are always passed
off as “crazed lone nuts” to obscure the real agenda.
The real agenda is simple. It is enslavement of the people by creation
of a false sense of obligation. That obligation is false because the Private Central Banking system, by design, always creates
more debt than money with which to pay that debt. Private Central Banking is not science, it is a religion; a set of arbitrary
rules created to benefit the priesthood, meaning the owners of the Private Central Bank. The fraud persists, with often
lethal results, because the people are tricked into believing that this is the way life is supposed to be and no alternative
exists or should be dreamt of. The same was true of two earlier systems of enslavement, Rule by Divine Right and Slavery,
both systems built to trick people into obedience, and both now recognized by modern civilizatyion as illegitimate. Now we
are entering a time in human history where we will recognize that rule by debt, or rule by Private Central Bankers issuing
the public currency as a loan at interest, is equally illegitimate. It only works as long as people allow themselves to
believe that this is the way life is supposed to be.
But understand this above all; Private Central
Banks do not exist to serve the people, the community, or the nation. Private Central Banks exist to serve their owners,
to make them rich beyond the dreams of Midas and all for the cost of ink, paper, and the right bribe to the right official.
Behind all these
wars, all these assassinations, the hundred million horrible deaths from all the wars lies a single policy of dictatorship.
The private central bankers allow rulers to rule only on the condition that the people of a nation be enslaved to the private
central banks. Failing that, said ruler will be killed, and their nation invaded by those other nations enslaved to private
The so-called “clash of civilizations” we read about on the corporate media is really a war between
banking systems, with the private central bankers forcing themselves onto the rest of the world, no matter how many millions
must die for it. Indeed the constant hatemongering against Muslims lies in a simple fact. Like the ancient Christians (prior
to the Knights Templars private banking system) , Muslims forbid usury, or the lending of money at interest. And that is
the reason our government and media insist they must be killed or converted. They refuse to submit to currencies issued
at interest. They refuse to be debt slaves.
So off to war your children must go, to spill their blood for the money-junkies’ gold.
We barely survived the last two world wars. In the nuclear/bioweapon age, are the private central bankers willing to risk
incinerating the whole planet just to feed their greed?
This brings us to the current situation in the Ukraine, Russia, and
European Union had been courting the government of the Ukraine to merge with the EU, and more to the point, entangle their
economy with the private-owned European Central Bank. The government of the Ukraine was considering the move, but had made
no commitments. Part of their concern lay with the conditions in other EU nations enslaved to the ECB, notably Cyprus, Greece,
Spain, and Italy. So they were properly cautious. Then Russia stepped in with a better deal and the Ukraine, exercising
the basic choice all consumers have to choose the best product at the best price, dropped the EU and announced they were
going to go with Russia’s offer. It was at that point that agents provocateurs flooded into the Ukraine, covertly
funded by intelligence agency fronts like CANVAS and USAID, stirring up trouble, while the western media proclaimed this
was a popular revolution. Snipers shot at people and this violence was blamed on then-President Yanukovich. However a leaked
recording of a phone call between the EU’s Catherine Ashton and Estonia’s Foreign Minister Urmas Paet confirmed
the snipers were working for the overthrow plotters, not the Ukrainian government. Urmas Paet has confirmed the authenticity
of that phone call.
This is a classic pattern of covert overthrow we have seen many times before. Since the end of WW2, the US has covertly
tried to overthrow the governments of 56 nations, succeeding 25 times. Examples include the 1953 overthrow of Iran’s
elected government of Mohammed Mossadegh and the imposition of the Shah, the 1973 overthrow of Chile’s elected government
of Salvador Allende and the imposition of the Pinochet dictatorship, and of course, the current overthrow of Ukraine’s
elected government of Yanukovich and the imposition of the current unelected government, which is already gutting the Ukraine’s
wealth to hand to the western bankers.
Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa have formed a parallel financial system called BRICS, scheduled to
officially launch on January 1, 2015. As of this writing some 80 nations are ready to trade with BRICS in transactions that
do not involve the US dollar. Despite US economic warfare against both Russia and China, the Ruble and Yuan are seen as
more attractive for international trade and banking than the US dollar, hence the US attempt to fan the Ukraine crisis into
war with Russia, and attempts to provoke North Korea as a back door to war with China.
Flag waving and propaganda aside, all
modern wars are wars by and for the private bankers, fought and bled for by third parties unaware of the true reason they
are expected to gracefully be killed and crippled for. The process is quite simple. As soon as the Private Central Bank
issues its currency as a loan at interest, the public is forced deeper and deeper into debt. When the people are reluctant
to borrow any more, that is when the Keynesian economists demand the government borrow more to keep the pyramid scheme working.
When both the people and government refuse to borrow any more, that is when wars are started, to plunge everyone even deeper
into debt to pay for the war, then after the war to borrow more to rebuild. When the war is over, the people have about the
same as they did before the war, except the graveyards are far larger and everyone is in debt to the private bankers for
the next century. This is why Brown Brothers Harriman in New York was funding the rise of Adolf Hitler.
As long as Private Central Banks are allowed
to exist, inevitably as the night follows day there will be poverty, hopelessness, and millions of deaths in endless World
Wars, until the Earth itself is sacrificed in flames to Mammon.
The path to true peace on Earth lies in the abolishment of all private
central banking everywhere, and a return to the state-issued value-based currencies that allow nations and people to become
