SHADOW GOVERNMENT And the Takedown of America
Is the government you thought you elected only a front for a sinister shadow government?
Who is really behind our elected leaders? You aren't going to like these answers.
The following allegations, facts and opinions are so outrageous, so unbelievable, in the end, they make perfect sense. They may be the most credible views of our history, our current crisis, and what is possibly in store for your future. You decide.
You are about to read, view and listen to digital recordings of an account of America and world history not reported in mainstream media, or written about in traditional text books. This is not born of tin-foil-hat Internet conspiracy theorists, rather of American presidents, other government officials and private national thought-leaders, revolutionaries, religious leaders, philosophers, artists, rebels and patriots on the inside and outside of these reported conspiracies and global dictatorial schemes. While the history of financial suppression of nations and their people goes back way before the United States of America was formed, this expose' will begin with events that led to creation of the United States of America. It will identify global conspiracies, agreements and elite forces that took control of the United States and stole its wealth from the people, and identify those whose plan it is to takedown the rest of America, its Constitution and freedoms. Ultimately, this expose will tell what we must do so that all is not lost.
We can beat these evil forces, but first you must know who and what you are fighting.
The story will be told in four parts.
Part I - Events From the Very Beginnings of Currency including the origins of the concept of banking and lending which gave bankers control over borrowers. Banking is in part what led to the founding of America, and almost before independence was won, the United States was surrendered to foreign banks, shockingly, by our beloved Constitution. A congressman verifies the loss of American wealth and its Constitution.
Part II - The People Who Stole America will identify the people who robbed America of its incredible wealth, and who continues to line their pockets while emptying yours. It will name names of the "Elite." Many, you will recognize. Did you know that the song, "Wish I Were a Rich Man," from the play, "Fiddler on the Roof," was originally written in Yiddish and was titled, "Wish I Were a Rothchild." Wonder why the federal government bailed out certain financial institutions such as Goldman Sachs, and let others such as Lehman Brothers fail? When we name names, you will understand who was behind the events that brought us to the crisis of today.
Part III - Secret Societies, Religions Who Conspire Against Us from the Freemasons, to the Illuminati, to Skull and Bones, to the international banking cartel, to the Bilderberg Group, how they install, elect and assassinate heads of state, including US Presidents. We will detail not only how they influenced the course of history, but now, our daily lives. What is the real function of the FBI, the CIA? Clue: It is not to protect the American people.
Part IV - A New American Revolution is for those who by now understand how America was lost. And how you personally were born into servitude, and are robbed in ever increasing ways, daily. You are literally sickened by it, because now you understand that Healthcare Reform is actually a scheme to constrict healthcare services and costs for the aging baby boomer generation soon to overwhelm the system. What can you do? How do you protect yourself, and your family? How do you protect your assets? Can the America so many died for ever be retrieved? What can one person do to fight against the powers that oppress?
PART I - THE GENESIS
How Europe came to control the world, and the new America.
As is well known, banking in Europe began in the medieval period with store-front gold merchants who invented fractional reserve banking by lending certificates against a gold reserve held for their customers on deposit. By the time of the Renaissance, banking was centered in Italy and Germany, then spread north and west to the Netherlands, France, and England.
Lending of money at interest was often left to the European Jews, where statements in various scriptures, such as the Talmud, appeared to allow the practice when dealing with non-Jews. Some argue that the Vatican worked behind the scenes by using Jews as fronts for their own lending operations.
About this time, Samuel Pepys (1633-1703) was writing his now-famous Diary. According to Canadian monetary expert Martin Hattersley, Pepys “was describing in surprised delight the new institution of banking, by which the smart investor, instead of paying the goldsmith for warehousing his valuables, opened an account, and was actually paid interest for having his money looked after!”
Pepys was captivated by the familiar but pernicious notion that, instead of working for a living, a person could have his money “work for him.” Aristotle had spoken against this concept 2,000 years earlier: “The most hated sort of wealth getting and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself and not from the natural object of it. For money was intended to be used in exchange but not to increase at interest. And this term interest, which means the birth of money from money is applied to the breeding of money because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of all modes of getting wealth, this is the most unnatural.” (1258b Politics)
The next two centuries saw the financiers’ control of world commerce spread through the instrumentality of the British Empire . The bedrock of British policy was “free trade,” which allowed British manufacturers who paid their workers a pittance to undersell their competitors elsewhere. This was aided by having the British pound become the world’s trading currency.
Finally, concludes Hattersley, “Skipping forward three centuries (past events such as the South Sea Bubble, tulip mania, the railway boom and the 1929 market crash) we find that the little spot of inflation that Mr. Pepsys indulged in has become a universal way of life. The extensive capital development of Canada [and the U.S. ] in the post-World War II boom has been largely financed, not by personal savings and investment, but by the inflation of the money supply. This has left the thrifty who invested their little savings from the hard times of the Great Depression in mortgages, bonds, and life insurance deprived of most of the rewards of their thrift, and has caused the profits of inflation to benefit all who could borrow, build, and then repay their capital in deflated dollars later on.”
Hattersley captures the essence of the modern usury-based economy. No longer is life based on honest human labor and the resources of nature, but on financial manipulation. This is why religious people have always viewed usury as a crime. Aristotle placed the usurer in the same category as others who “ply sordid trades,” such as pimps.
Freedom Won, Freedom Lost - The first American conspiracy was its very inception, with its philosophical roots in Europe, born in secrecy by necessity, to gain freedom from oppression.
Conspiracies are carried out through action of plots, as well as agreed silence. The word "conspiracy" is worth definition in this context:
America wins its independence in 1783. Or does it?
The American Revolutionary War (1775-1783), also known as the American War of Independence, began as a war between the Kingdom of Great Britain and thirteen united former British colonies on the North American continent and ended in a global war between several European great powers. The war was the culmination of the political American Revolution, whereby the colonists and their allies overthrew British rule. In 1775, Revolutionaries gained control of each of the thirteen colonial governments, set up the unifying Second Continental Congress, and formed a Continental Army. The following year, they formally declared their independence as a new nation, the United States of America. - wikipedia
Understand the reason men laid down their lives for independence – they were fighting for the freedom of the individual. Freedom from what? Freedom from oppression. For freedom of thought. For freedom of speech. For the freedom of the individual to pursue happiness, unfettered by Kings, Queens, governments and churches. Because they were fighting for individual rights, these values were born in necessary secrecy from the King and the Church. More on this in Part II and Part III.
BEFORE THE CONSTITUTION WERE THE ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION
Prior to our current Constitution was the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union. They were the governing agreement of the alliance of thirteen independent and sovereign states. Ratified in 1781, the Articles legally united the states by compact into the "United States of America" as a union with a confederation government. Under the Articles, the states retained sovereignty over all governmental functions not specifically deputed to the central government.
The Articles set the rules for operations of the "United States" confederation. The confederation was capable of making war, negotiating diplomatic agreements, and resolving issues regarding the western territories; it could not mint coins (each state had its own currency) nor could it borrow money, whether inside or outside the United States.
Although serving a crucial role in the victory in the American Revolutionary War, a group of reformers, known as "federalists", felt that the Articles lacked the necessary provisions for a sufficiently effective government. Fundamentally, a federation was sought to replace the confederation. The key criticism by those who favored a more powerful central state (the federalists) was that the government (the Congress of the Confederation) lacked taxing authority; it had to request funds from the states. Also, various federalist factions wanted a government that could impose uniform tariffs, give land grants, and assume responsibility for unpaid state war debts.) What you have in the Constitution is the makings of a takeover of the United States of America by the Bank of England.
When America won its independence from England in the Revolutionary War, it was only on paper. Arguably, the central Bank of England still owned the United States after the war. Still does.
"Let me issue and control a nation's money, and I care not who writes its laws." - Mayer Rothschild
THE CONSTITUTION WAS CREATED AS A TAKEOVER OF THE UNITED STATES BY BANKS TO PAY THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR DEBT
Revolutionary War debt...
Under the Articles of Confederation, Congress had been unable to collect the taxes needed to pay interest on that debt, so the debt had grown by compounding interest from about $40 million to $75 million. The Constitution strengthened the central government precisely to collect taxes to pay interest on the debt. Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg may have said that the new nation was "conceived in liberty" but the Constitution was conceived in debt. Most Americans think of the Constitution purely as a document guaranteeing freedoms, not guaranteeing payment to corrupt bankers, arguably it's primary purpose.
The other problem was no money supply...
As a new nation, the United States needed to create a money supply. Congress could have created that money by the authority given it in the new Constitution: "to coin money and regulate the value thereof." It chose instead to use the authority also given it in the Constitution to borrow money. The choice was fateful. It shifted control of the country's money from Congress to its creditors, private bankers.
Hamilton's "funding" plan.
It was Alexander Hamilton, the first US Secretary of the Treasury, who lobbied to the First Congress for the first privately owned Federal Bank, and in 1789 Congress chartered the bank. Hamilton was a banker and a plutocrat. He believed that wealthy people should rule the country. He distrusted the common people.
So Hamilton recommended a "funding system," an odd name because no funds were created, that put the wealthy in control of the money supply and, therefore, the country. The first step was that Congress pass a law obligating itself to pay interest to holders of Revolutionary War debt certificates. By so doing, Hamilton argued that people would consider the debt certificates valuable and would exchange them for goods and services, thus the debt certificates would circulate as money.
Hamilton's Bank plan.
The second part of Hamilton's recommended plan was to allow holders of debt certificates to use them to buy stock in a national bank that Congress was also to charter, The Bank of the United States. That bank would create the country's money as loans costing interest. By putting these two parts of the plan in place, the $75 million debt would become the base for a growing money supply, but all of it as debt.
Interest causes debt to compound . . .
The problem with Hamilton's plan was that interest had to be paid on the debt-circulating-as-money. If the debt certificates were used to pay the interest, the money supply would shrink and money shortages would cause economic recession. To maintain debt-money in circulation, owners of the debt, the creditors, would add more debt to what was already owed. So debt would grow at about the rate of interest forever. After 200 years of debt money, total public and private debt has grown to about $20,000,000,000,000. That's $20 trillion, and it will continue to grow, like a snowball rolling downhill, by ever larger amounts.
Why did they do it?
If such a system had caused bankruptcy in so many cases in Europe, why did members of the First Congress adopt it?
On January 28, 1790, a few days before his speech to the First Congress predicting a debt explosion, Georgia Senator, James Jackson gave a speech in which he accused Congressmen of sending agents throughout the country to buy up the depreciated debt certificates before Hamilton's plan became known to the public. In this way, these Congressmen would own the certificates when the Funding Act was passed into law and the value of the certificates appreciated to their face value. Then, they and their friends would become stockholders in the new Bank of the United States and profit from interest and growing debt. James Jackson is buried in the Congressional Cemetery.
Some people protested...
At the time, James Callender, reporter for the Philadelphia Gazette, wrote: "The funding law was passed through Congress by the influence of a majority, who purchased certificates from the army at under value: and who voted for the law, with the single view of enriching themselves. It is firmly believed and loudly asserted, by at least one half of the citizens of America, that the funding system was devised, not for the sake of paying the real creditors but of wronging them. Hamilton planned. Congress voted. The president approved."
In a letter to the editor, a 'farmer' protested: "Such injustice and oppression may be colored over with fine words; but there is a time coming, when the pen of history will detect and expose the folly of the arguments in favor of the proposed system, as well as the iniquity."
Evil, not merely unfair . . .
The farmer wrote "iniquity" not inequity. He considered the system not just unfair; he considered it evil.
The precedent became practice.
After warning that, "A funding system will be highly dangerous to the welfare of the Republic," that "It must hereafter settle upon our posterity a burden which they can neither bear nor relieve themselves from," James Jackson added that, "It will establish a precedent in America that may, and in all probability will, be pursued by the Sovereign authority, until it brings upon us that ruin which it has never failed to bring." That is exactly what happened.
Why didn't someone stop it?
Thomas Jefferson tried to stop it...
He warned, "If the American people ever allow the banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children will wake up homeless.... The issuing power of money should be taken from the banks and restored to Congress and the people to whom it belongs.
I sincerely believe the banking institutions (having the issuing power of money) are more dangerous to liberty than standing armies. My zeal against these institutions was so warm and open at the establishment of the Bank of the United States (Hamilton's foreign system), that I was derided as a maniac by the tribe of bank mongers who were seeking to filch from the public." From: Olive Cushing Dwinell, The Story of Our Money.
In 1811, under President James Madison, Vice President George Clinton broke the tied vote in congress to cast the bankers out refusing to renew the charter for the bankers. Unfortunately, it was President Madison who proposed a second United States privately owned Central bank and it came into existence in 1816.
President Andrew Jackson tried to stop it...
In 1836, President Andrew Jackson, infuriated by the tactics of the bankers who were attempting to persuade him to renew the charter of the Second Bank of the United States, said, "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 a revolution before morning."
Overriding Congress with a veto, Jackson closed it commenting, "The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it." When speaking to his closest friend, Martin Van Buren, Jackson said, "The bank, is trying to kill me, but I will kill it!" (he did, but we now have another one like it.) Jackson's speech of general ruin, was published in the Annals of Congress, Volume 1, pages 1140-1143.
Although Nicholas Biddle was President of the Bank of the United States at the time, it was well known that Baron James de Rothschild of Paris was the principal investor in this central bank. Although Jackson had vetoed the renewal of the charter of the Bank of the United States, he probably was unaware that a few months earlier, in 1835, the House of Rothschild had cemented a relationship with the United States Government by superseding the firm of Baring as financial agent of the Department of State on January 1, 1835.
Henry Clews, the famous banker, in his book, "Twenty-eight Years in Wall Street", states that the Panic of 1837 was engineered because the charter of the Second Bank of the United States had run out in 1836. Not only did President Jackson promptly withdraw government funds from the Second Bank of the United States, but he deposited these funds, $10 million, in state banks. The immediate result, Clews tells us, is that the country began to enjoy great prosperity. This sudden flow of cash caused an immediate expansion of the national economy, and the government paid off the entire national debt, leaving a surplus of $50 million in the Treasury._33 Henry Clews, Twenty-eight Years in Wall Street, Irving Company, New York, 1888, page 157
Andrew Jackson managed to pay off all but a paltry $38,000 of the national debt in 1936. (Gibbons, J.S., 1970. The Public Debt of the United States. New York: Burt Franklin. Orig. published in 1867).
The European financiers had the answer to this situation. Clews further states, "The Panic of 1837 was aggravated by the Bank of England when it in one day threw out all the paper connected with the United States."
The Bank of England, of course, was synonymous with the name of Baron Nathan Mayer Rothschild. So why did the Bank of England in one day in 1837 "throw out" all paper connected with the United States, that is, refuse to accept or discount any securities, bonds or other financial paper based in the United States? Because of Andrew Jackson's veto of the federal banks' system, tied to England, which had controlled the United States and its people until the veto. The purpose of the Bank of England's action was to create an immediate financial panic in the United States, cause a complete contraction of credit, halt further issues of stocks and bonds, and ruin those seeking to turn United States securities into cash. Sound familiar?
Abraham Lincoln tried to stop it... and it may have cost him his life.
During the Civil War (from 1861-1865), President Lincoln needed money to finance the War for the North. The Bankers were going to charge him 24% to 36% interest. Lincoln was horrified and greatly distressed, and he would not think of plunging his beloved country into a debt that the country would find impossible to pay back.
So Lincoln advised Congress to pass a law authorizing the printing of full legal tender Treasury notes to pay for the War effort. Lincoln recognized the great benefits of this issue. At one point he wrote: "... (we) gave the people of this Republic the greatest blessing they have ever had - their own paper money to pay their own debts..."
The Treasury notes were printed with green ink on the back, so the people called them "Greenbacks". Lincoln had printed 400 million dollars worth of Greenbacks (the exact amount being $449,338,902), money that he delegated to be created, a debt-free and interest-free money to finance the War. It served as legal tender for all debts, public and private. He printed it, paid it to the soldiers, to the U.S. Civil Service employees, and bought supplies for the war. Greenbacks are still authorized but have been removed from circulation because bankers want to keep money scarce so they can charge interest for it. The greenbacks were debt free and interest free. Source - U.S. Public and Private Debt 1790-2000
After the Civil War was won by the North, the Banks needed to reassert their influence and control.
Lincoln needed to be assassinated. He was. And not by a lone gunman. Same as Kennedy.
After Lincoln's assassination conspiracy was carried out, and John Wilks Booth was shot to death, and four conspirators were hanged, one a woman, and four others were imprisoned, Congress revoked the Greenback Law and enacted, in its place, the National Banking Act.
The national banks were to be privately owned and the national bank notes they issued were to be interest-bearing. The National Banking Act also provided that the Greenbacks should be retired from circulation as soon as they came back to the Treasury in payment of taxes. No Lincoln, no problem.
When you follow the money you find there was no-one in the world who had a better reason to kill President Lincoln than the banks. With Lincoln gone, now the Banks could own an interest in the land as the federal government pushed west, collect debt, levy taxes, tariffs and issue currency, regulate interstate and foreign commerce. In addition, the necessary-and-proper clause gives the federal government the implied power to pass any law "necessary and proper" for the execution of its express powers. More independence and freedom for the people was lost, again, as the banks expanded their territory, The United States of America.
The power delegated to the federal government was significantly expanded by amendments to the Constitution following the Civil War, and by some later amendments--as well as the overall claim of the Civil War, that the states were legally subject to the final dictates of the federal government. -wikipedia
Our states, our land, and we the people became literally governed by the Banks, which was a primary reason for the Constitution. Let's say that again in another way: the Constitution is the formula, the contract, for the American people being enslaved by bank debt, foreign and domestic. This was not what the Revolutionary War and our forefathers' fight for independence was about. The Articles of Confederation was closer to the freedom they sought. But the Constitution contract with the Banks was, and is the result.
THE FIRST TWO FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEMS LASTED APPROXIMATELY 20 YEARS EACH, AND WE ARE NOW ALMOST 100 YEARS INTO THE THIRD ONE.
The Years Leading to Our Current Federal Reserve Bank.
With the First Zionist Congress of 1897, one of the financiers’ geopolitical goals became to support the creation of the nation of Israel, at least partly to dominate the world’s crossroads in the oil-rich Middle East . The oil was needed to fuel the British navy.
Ultimately, the most powerful men in the United States were themselves answerable to another power, a foreign power, and a power which had been steadfastly seeking to extend its control over the young republic of the United States since its very inception. This power was the financial power of England, centered in the London Branch of the House of Rothschild. The fact was that by 1910, the United States was for all practical purposes being ruled from England, and so it is today. -32 John Moody, "The Seven Men", McClure’s Magazine, August, 1911, p. 418
1913 is the year our government surrendered even the issuance of currency, the printing of money to the private banks, one year after Woodrow Wilson was elected president of the United States. Prior to his election Wilson needed financial support to pay for his campaign, so he reluctantly agreed, that if elected, he would sign the Federal Reserve Act in return for that financial support.
In December 1913 while many members of Congress were home for Christmas, the Federal Reserve Act was rammed through Congress and was later signed by President Wilson. At a later date, Wilson admitted with remorse, when referring to the Fed."I have unwittingly ruined my country".
While World War I and the Russian Revolution still lay a few years in the future, the international financiers quietly had taken control of the U.S. economic system in 1913 through the Federal Reserve Act and the 16th Amendment to the Constitution which provided for the federal income tax. The purpose of this tax was to use citizens’ earnings to pay the interest on the “funded” national debt. As with the debt owed by the British people to the Bank of England, this would be one so large the principle could never be paid off.
Now Comes the Income Tax!
We didn't have nor did we need an income tax until we got the Central Bankers back in 1913. The 16th Amendment to the Constitution which provided for the federal income tax was only needed to pay interest to the bankers for our money which they loaned to our government. The purpose of this Amendment and Income Tax was to use citizens’ earnings to pay the interest on the “funded” national debt. As with the debt owed by the British people to the Bank of England, this interest debt would be so large the principle could never be paid off. The Federal Reserve, made up of private banks, mostly on paper and computer, creates money or pays the Treasury a small printing fee for currency, and then loans this money to our government. Our taxes pay the banks, called The Federal Reserve Bank, interest on this loan that cost the "FED" virtually nothing to make.
How the Banks double their profits from war -- they finance both sides. Richard C. Cook is a former U.S. federal government analyst, whose career included service with the U.S. Civil Service Commission, the Food and Drug Administration, the Carter White House, NASA, and the U.S. Treasury Department.
It was the financier-controlled press which goaded President Woodrow Wilson into taking the nation into World War I on the side of England and France. But it was also part of the financiers’ plan to shift the apparent focal point of their financial power from London to New York . This was done through the financing of the war by loans made to the European combatants by the New York banks.
