“Somebody is using us. The business of banking was set up in the year 1099. An income tax form is a 1099. Who decided on that? Think about it.” -Jordan Maxwell, “Matrix of Power”
When a country centralizes banking, it concentrates an enormous amount wealth into a single institution, works mainly to make the rich richer, and opens the government to control from foreign interests. As Bill Clinton’s mentor Dr. Carroll Quigley 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 private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was the Bank for International Settlements in
; a private bank owned and controlled by the worlds' central banks which were themselves private corporations. The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury of all other economic groups." Basle, Switzerland
With institutions like IMF and World Bank along with new
Union currencies like the EU Euro further consolidating and centralizing the world’s banking and currencies, the amount of global influence these international bankers have on world economies and politics is extraordinary. Their method of control is just like a loan-shark or the mafia. Firstly to qualify for loans, desperate nations are forced into pawning mines, railways, forests, power or water companies. Then to pay off the loans nations are forced to do things like ignore environmental laws, lower wages/cut back on education or health care, and privatize/sell off their resources to crooked corporations like Enron and Exxon. Whenever these poor countries cannot pay off the loans, the “generous” international bankers simply give new, higher-interest loans to pay off the old ones, further indebting/enslaving the nation. As Mayer Amschel Rothschild said, "Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” More recently, Richard McKenna, former President of Midlands Bank of said, “Those that create and issue the money and credit direct the policies of government and hold in their hands the destiny of the people.” England
“It is a well known fact that international bankers have financed nations to fight against each other. Where do you think the countries get their money to buy tanks, guns, uniforms, etc., to arm their nation for war? They borrow from international bankers. International bankers have financed both sides of countries at war with each other. They don't care who wins, because while the nations are borrowing huge amounts of money to kill each other, international bankers make huge amounts on money from the interest charges that they make each nation pay. They also have the power to control the outcome of the war by simply cutting off the flow of money they lend. So, under the threat of war, international bankers have used their power to gain or increase control over governments. By keeping a nation in debt they are in a position to demand a voice in the government affairs of the nation. Another goal which they have already achieved is to control all the world's monetary systems.” -Alex Christopher, “Pandora’s Box – The Ultimate Unseen Hand Behind the
New World Order,” (146)
Despite Jefferson’s warnings, in 1791 Alexander Hamilton, the Secretary of the Treasury, pushed a Congressional charter through to create the First Bank of the
ates which stood for 20 years until 1811 when President James Madison and Vice President George Clinton refused to sign/renew the charter. United St said, “History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, Madison deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance.” Strangely enough, only 5 years later, still under ’s Presidency, in 1816 he signed the charter for the second Madison national bank. Such hypocritical action raised suspicion of bribe or blackmail at work behind the scenes.
From 1864 – 1913 the National Banking Act and the Civil War all but forced the majority of
’s banks to become nationalized. The effort to create the third America central bank began in 1873 when the bloodline international banking cartel engineered the first of three financial panics which they used to scare the public into accepting the Federal Reserve. U.S.
"A study of the panics of 1873, 1893 and 1907 indicates that these panics were the result of the international bankers' operations in
. The public was demanding in 1908 that Congress enact legislation to prevent the recurrence of artificially induced money panics." -Eustace Mullins, “Secrets of the Federal Reserve” London
In 1881 President Garfield was assassinated less than four months after taking office. He was another anti-banking establishment President, who took action and spoke out against them. He was “coincidentally” shot and killed shortly after declaring: “Whosoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce … And 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.” The next Presidential assassination happened 20 years later when a supposed “anarchist” shot William McKinley twice at point-blank range. Once again, McKinley was a strong supporter of the gold standard and helped pass the
Gold Standard Act of 1900 less than a year before his death.
On November 22nd, 1910, seven of the richest men in the world met at J.P. Morgan’s personal island retreat off the coast of
Georgia called “ Jekyll .” The 7 men were Frank A. Vanderlip, Abraham Piatt Andrew, Henry P. Davidson, Charles D. Norton, Island Benjamin Strong, l Moritz Warburg, and Nelson W. Aldrich. Behind these men stood the banking/investment interests of the Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Pau rgans, and Warburgs. The 7 Schiffs, Mo conspirators met for 7 days and planned a series of radical banking reforms necessary to create the Federal Reserve. Jekyll Island
When the media learned about the
meetings, the bankers all claimed they were out duck hunting. Later in life, however, conspirator and president of NY National City Bank, Frank A. Vanderlip admitted otherwise when he wrote: "There was an occasion near the close of 1910, when I was as secretive, indeed, as furtive as any conspirator ... I do not feel it is any exaggeration to speak of our secret expedition to Jekyll Island as the occasion of the actual conception of what eventually became the Federal Reserve System." Woodrow Wilson had said of the earlier three financial crises that, "All this trouble could be averted if we appointed a committee of six or seven public spirited .men like J. P. Morgan to handle the affairs of our country." And that is exactly what happened. Jekyll Island
"So the American people, who had suffered through the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the battles between Andrew Jackson and the Second Bank of the United States, the Civil War, the previous panics of 1873 and 1893, and now the Panic of 1907, were finally conditioned to the point of accepting the solution offered by those who had caused all of these events: the international bankers. That solution was a central bank.” -Ralph Epperson
“These men concluded not to have one central bank in the
, but several and they agreed that no one was to utter the words ‘central’ or ‘bank.’ Most important, they decided that this creation would be made to look like an official agency of the United States government.” -Jim Marrs, “Rule by Secrecy” (73) U.S.
They called it the Federal Reserve, but it is neither federal nor a reserve. It is about as federal as Federal Express, and as much a reserve as
n Indian reservations. It is a network of banks (5 originally, now 12), headed at the America branch, all of them privately owned, but made to appear like an official government agency. The original stockholders of the Federal Reserve were Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Warburgs, Russells, Morgans, Peabodys, and Reynolds - all Illuminati families. New York
“The Federal Reserve Bank of
was controlled by five banks which owned 53% of its stock. These five banks were controlled by Nathan M. Rothschild & Sons of New York . Control over the London Fed is basically control over the world’s money. That fact alone shows how immense the Rothschild Power is. If one examines who has been appointed to head the Fed, and to run it, the connections of the "Federal" Reserve System to the Rothschilds can further be seen. Another private enterprise using the name Federal that the Rothschilds also direct is Federal Express. Any one else might be taken to court for making their businesses sound like they are government, not the Rothschilds. It is appropriate for them to appropriate the name of Federal, because by way of MI6 via the CIA they instruct the U.S. government. Senators are bought and paid off by their system, as investigators of the BCCI are discovering.” –Fritz Springmeier, “Bloodlines of the Illuminati” U.S.
Island planners Vanderlip and Aldrich spoke out venomously against Glass's bill, even though entire sections were identical to the Aldrich Plan. It was clearly an effort to garner public support for the Glass bill by the appearance of banker opposition … The appearance of opposition by Wall Street was necessary. William McAdoo, Wilson's son-in-law who was appointed secretary of the Treasury, later revealed, ‘Bankers fought the . . . Federal Reserve Act with the tireless energy of men fighting a forest fire. They said it was populistic, socialistic, half-baked, destructive, infantile, badly conceived and unworkable.’ However, McAdoo said in interviews with these bankers, ‘I perceived gradually, through all the haze and smoke of controversy, that the banking world was not really as much opposed to the bill as it pretended to be....’ signed the Federal Reserve Act on December 23, 1913, just two days before Christmas with some Congressmen already home for the holidays and with the average citizen's attention clearly elsewhere.” -Jim Marrs, “Rule by Secrecy” (73-5) Wilson
