"Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws."- Mayer Amschel Rothschild, patriarch of the Rothschild banking dynasty.
This quote illustrates where the real power lies. It is also something that the founding fathers of the US and many other world leaders over the years understood. One of Thomas Jefferson's quotes is the best example of the forefathers knowing the dangers of giving the power to print money to private bankers. He states:
I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.And James Madison had this to say:
"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."Unfortunately, most of the world and not just the US is now controlled by what Jefferson warned about. An international banking cartel led largely by House Rothschild, has taken control of virtually every country's money supply and installed a fiat currency that they own. This process is not a fast one; it is not measured in months, years, and decades, but instead-- by generations.
The modern-day Rothschild-lead banking cartel likes to keep a low profile. Although, this was not always the case. Nathan Rothschild, one of Meyer Amschel's 5 sons sent throughout Europe to install their family banking empire, was quite brash and did not shy away from letting everyone know who had the power.
"I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the Empire, ... The man that controls Britain's money supply controls the British Empire. And I control the money supply."The international banking elite, who I call the "ruling class", are the puppet masters behind all the governments of the world. Their fiat-based currency gives them this control.
Throughout history, however, there has been a handful of people who have stood up to this banking cartel. It often ends badly for these men, but I have faith that in the future we, humanity, will break the invisible chains of slavery that these bankers have put on us. Until then, let's have a look at the men that did stand up to these men.
Napoleon had this to say about the cartel:
“When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.”Sometime around 1800, he installed the Bank of France canceling the debt owed to the money lenders who created it out of thin air. He also made charging interest illegal. He stated:
"Terrorism, War & Bankruptcy are caused by the privatization of money, issued as a debt and compounded by interest "With this, Napoleon effectively declared war against the Rothschild-ran banking system, which wasted little time to retaliate. Nathan Rothschild used his power to back a royalist plot to reinstate a Bourbon Prince on the French throne. The plot failed. Nevertheless, the banking cartel was able to finally defeat Napoleon at Waterloo and exile him.
Incidentally, Nathan Rothschild was funding Napoleon's enemies, the Wellington’s troops. This allowed him to get information about the battles well before anyone else. Nathan heard about Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo about 12 hours before the English government did. Nathan was never a man to let information like this go to waste. This was no different. He orchestrated a genius plan to use this knowledge to completely take over ownership of the Bank of England. Everyone knew Nathan's spy ring was top notch, so they were looking to him for information on the outcome. They got it when he started dumping massive amounts of stock making it look as though Napoleon lost. This caused a huge panic that ended with everyone dumping their stock. Nathan then secretly bought back the stock pennies on the dollar!
This illustrates his, and other members of his families, deviousness.
Known as old hickory, Andrew Jackson vehemently opposed the Second Bank of the United States. The bank, like it's successor The Federal Reserve, did not belong to the federal government. It instead, was privately owned. However, the owners and director did not have as much power as the Federal Reserve does today. The charter for the Second Bank of the United States only lasted 20 years, unlike the 100 year charter of the Federal Reserve.
The charter did not end until 1936, but politicians close to the money cartel decided to push up the legislation for the recharter to 1932. They thought that Jackson would not be able to veto the bill in an election year out of fear of losing votes.
Jackson was true to his word, killing the bank via using his power to veto the bill. He stated in the veto message to the Senate that
“It is not our own citizens only who are to receive the bounty of our Government. More than eight millions of the stock of this bank are held by foreigners…. Is there no danger to our liberty and independence in a bank that in its nature has so little to bind it to our country? ….”
“Controlling our currency, receiving our public moneys, and holding thousands of our citizens in dependence …. would be more formidable and dangerous than a military power of the enemy.”
“If [government] would confine itself to equal protection, and, as Heaven does its rains, shower its favor alike on the high and the low, the rich and the poor, it would be an unqualified blessing. In the act before me, there seems to be a wide and unnecessary departure from these just principles.”
He also ordered the federal government's deposits removed from the Bank of the United States. The people of the US loved his move and reelected him into office.
A few years after the veto there was an assassination attempt on Jackson's life. The would-be assassin stood trail spent the rest of his life in a mental institution after he was found guilty. Jackson, however, felt the banking cartels were behind the assassination attempt.
Unfortunately, these people do not give up easily. In 1863, the cartel regained control over the money supply of the US via the National Banking Act. This act also did away with individual state's ability and right's to create their own currency. It is easy to see why the cartel would want to get rid of all the different currencies by implementing one currency -- it is exponentially easier to control one currency than multiple currencies.
The three presidents (Lincoln, Garfield and Kennedy) who opposed and threatened the cartel's power wound up dead. This has led to their complete and utter control over the US political system. They are who many Presidents have referred to as "the invisible government".
Incidentally, in modern times, the control the cartel has on the world via controlling the money supply, has grown immensely as well. Every time a world leader has dared to threaten the international banker's control by challenging the petrodollar, a war quickly starts. We, in America, receive a constant assault of propaganda from the media to justify the invasion. However, if you look at the countries we have invaded post 9-11 you will see similarities.
In the case of Iraq, Saddam threatened the petrodollar by threatening to sell oil for the Euro. In Libya's case, Gaddafi got particularly risky. He was trying to make a gold-backed currency that would give Africa its freedom of the western bankers.
Additionally, all the countries that we invaded post 9-11 have one thing in common-- they don't have central banks. In 2000, the list of countries without a Rothschild controlled central bank read: Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea, and Iran. In 2011, there are only 3 from this list left: Cuba, North Korea and Iran. The instillation of a central bank happened right after we invaded Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya.
The true reasons behind these invasions are blatantly clear to those who have looked into it.
As dire as it may seem, I do believe the tides are turning and the days of this cartel ruling the world from the shadows will not last much longer. To most Americans, part 2 of this article, explaining who is behind the active attempts to destroy the fiat currencies and the world economic structure ran by international bankers of the west, will be a shock. This is simply because of the propaganda we receive about any world leader who attempts to overthrow the bankers. If you read with an open mind and look at all the evidence, I believe you will see the truth.
