The “Federal Reserve Bank” (Fed) is not part of the United States Government. The Fed is a private, for-profit corporation ultimately owned by eight elite banking families:
1. Rothschild’s of London and Berlin
2. Lazard Brothers of Paris
3. Israel Moses Seaf of Italy
4. Kuhn, Loeb & Co. of Germany and New York
5. Warburg & Company of Hamburg, Germany
6. Lehman Brothers of New York
7. Goldman, Sachs of New York
8. Rockefeller Brothers of New York
Magically, the Fed has exclusive rights to the dollar, and for them it’s even better than money growing on trees. Whether paying nominal U.S. mint printing costs for Federal Reserve Notes (like those papering your wallet), or simply entering digits into their banks’ computers, they lend this “money” back to us at a profit, making the following seem inevitable:
“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
A problem with this quote attributed to Thomas Jefferson is that he never said it, apparently. But one great thing about truth, it rings no matter who says it.
Here’s some truth from Wright Patman, Texas Democratic congressman from 1929 to 1976:
“…it is absolutely wrong for the Government to issue interest-bearing obligations. It is not only wrong: it is extravagant. It is not only extravagant, it is wasteful. It is absolutely unnecessary.”
Congressman Patman was chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Banking and Currency for forty years; for twenty of those years he introduced legislation to repeal the Federal Reserve Banking Act of 1913.
Patman also said:
“I have never yet had anyone who could, through the use of logic and reason, justify the Federal Government borrowing the use of its own money. I believe the time will come when people will demand that this be changed. I believe the time will come in this country when they will actually blame you and me and everyone else connected with the Congress for sitting idly by and permitting such an idiotic system to continue.”
That “idiotic system” is the Fed.
$454,393,280,417.03…for the year 2011, that’s how much Americans paid a consortium of twelve private banks for creating dollars out of nothing, and loaning them to the government at interest.
There may be no greater con job than the Fed. Even the name is a con—any influence the United States Government has over the Fed is a dog and pony show. The Fed is Top Dog, and there are no reserves to pony up.
Consider Americans accepting control of their money supply by debt predators—European establishments rank with old money. Seems incredible, but mainstream corporate media (MSM) is controlled by those same old spiders, so they also control the mass American mind. Obviously, even the government is in their web.
Many people aware of America’s submission to Rothschild-controlled central banking call the whole bleeding mess The Crime of the Century.
In June of 2012, when Congress renewed the Fed’s charter for another century, MSM made it a non-event. That’s right, renewal of the Fed’s charter for another 100 years but MSM was loading up for something popularly seismic on their radar: Hostess Twinkies in jeopardy.
Shook the very foundation of consumerism, rumbled from coast to coast. Twenty-dollar Twinkies…fifty?
Twinkies will probably be ushered back via carpet bombing of American attention span with irresistible cream-filled news. And the Fed will barely cast shadows.
No Laws, Only Power
If you had the privilege of creating dollars from thin air, and loaning them to government at interest, you might do anything to protect that privilege. Control of dollars means enough power to keep the privilege going until, as congressman Patnam said, “…the time will come when people demand that this be changed.”
We may be long past that time by not understanding all the warnings, including what presidents before and after Lincoln have told us about foreign central baking.
President Andrew Jackson put it this way in 1835:
“You are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out, and by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be revolution before morning.”
The U.S. has had three Rothschild-controlled central banks. The First Bank of the United States (1791-1811); The Second Bank of the United States (1816-1836); “The Fed” (until death do us part)? Jackson vetoed renewal of the charter for the Second Bank of the United States several years early, July 10, 1832. Not long after his “…den of vipers” declaration, Jackson survived an assassination attempt when both of the assassin’s pistols misfired; later he told his vice president, “The bank, Mr. Van Buren, is trying to kill me….”
Money is power. A monopoly to create “credit money” from nothing and loan it at compound interest, that’s pure power.
Rothschilds have long been reasonably candid about their predation. In 1838, Amschel Bauer Mayer Rothschild said, “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws.”
1912, the year before the Fed doomed the U.S. to a bitter end, Nathaniel Meyer Rothschild told a group of international bankers, “Give me control of the credit of a nation, and I care not who makes the laws.”
Earth is home to 196 recognized “sovereign” nations. In 2000, 189 nations had a Rothschild-controlled central bank. But since advent of the immortal “War on Terror”, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Sudan have been captured, leaving only Iran, Cuba, and North Korea still free.
What makes challenging the Rothschild Privilege so dangerous is that protecting their privilege is well within Rothschild Power. Money trumps morality, and most everything else.
The four assassinated U.S. presidents, Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, Kennedy—they all challenged the Rothschild Privilege….
Lincoln fought Rothschild attempts to get involved in financing the Civil War.
So, through their agent, Treasury Secretary Salmon P. Chase, Rothschilds forced through Congress, in 1864, The National Banking Act.
Lincoln soon warned the American people:
“The money power preys upon the nation in time of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me, and causes me to tremble for the safety of our country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption will follow, and 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 a few hands, and the republic is destroyed.”
Lincoln also said, “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.”
Instead of saddling citizens with the 24% to 36% interest demanded by bankers to finance the Civil War for the North, Lincoln came up with “Greenbacks”. $449,338,902 of these full legal tender Treasury Notes were printed. The London Times responded quickly:
“If that mischievous financial policy, which had its origin in the North American Republic, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without a debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed, or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”
President Garfield warned of the dangers to America should these European Central Bankers ever gain power:
“Whoever controls the money of a nation, controls that nation and is absolute master of all industry and commerce. When you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.”
Garfield was assassinated in 1881.
President McKinley began his attack against the Central Bankers with Secretary of State John Sherman (1823-1900). They used the “Sherman Antitrust Act”against the Rothschild supported and funded JP Morgan financial empire known as the Northern Trust, which by the late 1800s owned nearly all of America’s railroads.
McKinley’s fight against the Central Bankers ended with his assassination in 1901. Vice President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt took power. Rothschild supported Roosevelt immediately dropped the United States government lawsuits against the Northern Trust.
Kennedy was the other president to create a U.S. money system in defiance of the Rothschild Privilege.
On June 4, 1963, Kennedy signed Executive Order 11110, and the Treasury issued $4.3 billion in U.S. Notes (“Silver Certificates”) into circulation. Five months later, Kennedy was assassinated by a “lone gunman” firing magic bullets.
Congressman in the 70s and 80s, Larry P. McDonald fought to expose hidden holdings of international bankers. McDonald died aboard Korean Airlines flight 007 when it was “accidentally” shot down in Soviet Airspace on August 31, 1983.
Senator John Heinz and former Senator John Tower were staunch critics of the Fed, and both served on the powerful Senate Banking and Finance Committee. Heinz was killed in a plane crash on April 4, 1991. Tower also died in a plane crash, the next day.
If these “coincidences” are in fact, coincidence, and not obvious protection of the Rothschild Privilege, that might seem a coincidence somewhat as profound as the Privilege itself.
Only One Solution
Regardless of how much death and destruction a nation is capable of inflicting, and how much “benign global hegemony” they can enforce militarily, if that nation borrows the use of its own money, how can it be regarded as a superpower?
The only real superpower on the planet is Rothschild-controlled central banking and their debt grip on 98% of nations. When the spider spins its fiat money, an equal amount of debt–plus interest–is created. Compound interest.
In the U.S., we will careen from debt crisis to debt crisis while astounding ignorance of the real problem is massaged into the mass American mind by MSM. Threatened government shutdown after threatened government shutdown while austerity dogs the most vulnerable American citizens and debt crushes all but the .001%, unless….
The only way the we might have a future is if we reclaim the right, mandated in the Constitution, of issuing and controlling our own debt-free money. That means a dead Fed is our only hope. Debt is venom, and the Fed will always keep us topped up.
Are we all out of Jacksons, Lincolns, Garfields, McKinleys, Kennedys…or does the U.S. still have some people power?
Perhaps a better way to put it: The U.S. has tremendous people power, but thanks largely to MSM, the people have little idea how to use their power.
