"Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who writes the laws." -Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812)
"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." -Napoleon Bonaparte
The old saying that money is the root of all evil is a worthy debate, without doubt. Those of unfathomable and untold wealth control this world. They do so by controlling the currency systems of nations, and then holding them hostage with their interest bearing fiat currency, which soon bankrupts each nation, thus forcing them to need and rely on the bankers even more.
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies." -Thomas Jefferson.
"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 money and it's issuance." -James Madison
Because the victor always writes the history, few know that the American Revolution was not inspired by a tax on tea. It was because the crown had reached across the Atlantic and taken away from the colonists their right to create "interest free" currency, known as colonial script. The bankers did not want the colonists to have debt-free currency, but they don't teach us that in school, do they?
"The colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been that England took away from the colonies their money, which created unemployment and dissatisfaction. The inability of colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of George the III and the international bankers was the prime reason for the Revolutionary War." -Benjamin Franklin
The Civil War was not about slavery as much as it was a coup instilled by the European bankers, to divide the nation, to get another national bank granted in the US, for control of the nation.
Please consider the following comments, written by the Rothschild's in a letter to New York banking interests, proposing a new “system” to the ultra-wealthy banking interests of our country (Rockefeller, JP Morgan), just two years before Lincoln’s assassination.
"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 wealthy banking associates in New York, 1863.
The “system” that the Rothschild's were referring to was a new proposed monetary control scheme, capable of toppling government through the takeover of its banking and currency. The “system,” as it was described, would eventually become known as the Federal Reserve System.
After three presidential assassinations (all under the watchful eye of the Secret Service, which was created the year that Lincoln was murdered) a third national bank was established with the creation of the Federal Reserve System in 1913. This took control of the nation's currency, stealing the country's sovereignty and eventually bankrupting the US in 1933, as planned.
Despite allowing the Federal Reserve to come into being through a prearranged deal prior to the election of 1912, President Wilson realized the error of his ways and had great remorse, saying...
"The money power preys upon the nation in times of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. -Abraham Lincoln
Before the war was even over, they were already setting up the second phase of their plan, a 3rd national bank in the US. The bankers tried to charge Lincoln 24% to 36% interest to finance the war. Rather than sink the nation in debt with the foreign bankers, Lincoln instead passed the Legal Tender Act, creating interest free US currency known as the Lincoln Greenbacks. This angered the European bankers immensely, so much so, that the London Times had this to say about Lincoln's greenbacks...
"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 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 world--no longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men." -President Woodrow Wilson
"If that mischievous financial policy which had its origin in the North America Republic during the late war in that country, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debt. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government (the Lincoln administration) must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe."
Those appear to be fighting words.
As coincidence would have it, Lincoln was assassinated afterwards, even though the war was over. They repealed Lincoln's greenbacks with the Contraction Act on April 12, 1866.
The third and final interest free currency the US ever printed came from President John F. Kennedy, with his defiant issuance of Executive Order 11110 which gave back to the US Treasury the ability to create its own interest free money. The Kennedy "silver certificates" were named this way because they were backed with silver, instead of gold. This angered the international bankers.
Kennedy had fired a direct shot at the central banking cartel, and for that, they returned fire on a November day (22) in 1963, with a hail of bullets as they gunned down and murdered a US President in cold blood on an American street in public view.
All for profit and power... and control over the United States. $$$
