Part 1: All Wars are Bankers’ Wars


The First Bank of the United States

By Michael Rivero

“The most hated sort [of moneymaking], and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself, and not from the natural use of it. For money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest. And this term usury 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 making money this is the most unnatural.” — Aristotle (384-322 BCE)

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits.” — Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain.

“The Bank, its property and assets and all deposits and other funds entrusted to it shall be immune in time of peace and in time of war from any measure such as expropriation, requisition, seizure, confiscation, prohibition or restriction of gold or currency export or import, and any other measure.” — Article 10, Instrument of Foundation, Bank of International Settlements.

“When the world around the IMF goes downhill, we thrive. We become extremely active because we lend money, we earn interest and charges and all the rest of it, and the institution does well. When the world goes well and we’ve had years of growth, as was the case back in 2006 and 2007, the IMF doesn’t do so well both financially and otherwise.” — Christine Lagarde

I know many people have a great deal of difficulty comprehending just how many wars are started for no other purpose than to force private central banks onto nations, so let me share a few examples, so that you understand why the US Government is mired in so many wars against so many foreign nations. There is ample precedent for this.

The United States fought the American Revolution primarily over King George III’s Currency act, which forced the colonists to conduct their business only using printed bank notes borrowed from the Bank of England at interest.

Benjamin Franklin, acting as the colonies’ representative to Britain, argued against this move in 1763.

“You see, a legitimate government can both spend and lend money into circulation, while banks can only lend significant amounts of their promissory bank notes, for they can neither give away nor spend but a tiny fraction of the money the people need. Thus, when your bankers here in England place money in circulation, there is always a debt principal to be returned and usury to be paid. The result is that you have always too little credit in circulation to give the workers full employment. You do not have too many workers, you have too little money in circulation, and that [money] which circulates all bears the endless burden of unpayable debt and usury…..In the Colonies, we issue our own money. It is called Colonial Scrip [interest-free, wealth-based money issued by The Colonies 1750-1764 before Bank of England crooks made it illegal]. We issue it in proper proportion to make the products pass easily from the producers to the consumers. In this manner, creating ourselves our own paper money, we control its purchasing power, and we have no interest to pay to no one.”

The following year, King George III passed the Currency act which outlawed all forms of money in the colonies, forcing them to conduct all commerce using bank notes borrowed at interest from the Bank of England!

King George III

“The bank hath benefit of interest on all moneys which it creates out of nothing.” — William Paterson, founder of the Bank of England in 1694

Interest Bearing bank note from the Bank of England, 1764 

After the revolution, the new United States adopted a radically different economic system in which the government issued its own value-based money, so that private banks like the Bank of England were not siphoning off the wealth of the people through interest-bearing bank notes.

“The refusal of King George 3rd to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, was probably the prime cause of the revolution.” — Benjamin Franklin, Founding Father

Following the revolution, the US Government actually took steps to keep the bankers out of the new government!

“Any person holding any office or any stock in any institution in the nature of a bank for issuing or discounting bills or notes payable to bearer or order, cannot be a member of the House whilst he holds such office or stock.” — Third Congress of the United States Senate, 23rd of December, 1793, signed by the President, George Washington

“If ever again our nation stumbles upon unfunded paper, it shall surely be like death to our body politic. This country will crash.” — George Washington

“All the perplexities, confusion and distresses in America arise not from defects in the constitution or confederation, nor from want of honor or virtue, as much from downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit, and circulation.” — John Adams, letter to Thomas Jefferson.

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks…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.” — Thomas Jefferson

“Paper is poverty. It is the ghost of money and not money itself.” — 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 its issuance.” — James Madison

“Of all the contrivances for cheating the laboring classes of mankind, none has been more effective than that which deludes them with paper money.” . . . “We are in danger of being overwhelmed with irredeemable paper, mere paper, representing not gold nor silver; no sir, representing nothing but broken promises, bad faith, bankrupt corporations, cheated creditors and a ruined people.” — Daniel Webster

“Capital must protect itself in every possible way, both by combination and legislation. Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible.
“When, through process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of the government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers.
“These truths are well known among our principal men, who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance.
“It is thus, by discrete action, we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.” — Montagu Norman, Governor of The Bank Of England, addressing the United States Bankers� Association, NYC 1924

The First Bank of the United States

But bankers are nothing if not dedicated to their schemes to acquire your wealth, and know full well how easy it is to corrupt a nation’s leaders.

Mayer Amschal Rothschild

“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

Just one year after Mayer Amschel Rothschild had uttered his infamous “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws,” the bankers succeeded in setting up a new Private Central Bank called the First Bank of the United States, largely through the efforts of the Rothschild’s chief US supporter, Alexander Hamilton.

Alexander Hamilton

Founded in 1791, by the end of its twenty year charter the First Bank of the United States had almost ruined the nation’s economy, while enriching the bankers. Congress refused to renew the charter and signaled their intention to go back to a state issued value based currency on which the people paid no interest at all to any banker. This resulted in a threat from Nathan Mayer Rothschild against the US Government, “Either the application for renewal of the charter is granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war.”

Congress still refused to renew the charter for the First Bank of the United States, whereupon Nathan Mayer Rothschild railed, “Teach those impudent Americans a lesson! Bring them back to colonial status!” The British Prime Minister at the time, Spencer Perceval was adamently opposed to war with the United States, primarily because the majority of England’s military might was occupied with the ongoing Napoleonic wars. Spencer Perceval was concerned that Britain might not prevail in a new American war, a concern shared by many in the British government.

Then, Spencer Perceval was assassinated (the only British Prime Minister to be assassinated in office) and replaced by Robert Banks Jenkinson, the 2nd Earl of Liverpool, who was fully supportive of a war to recapture the colonies.

Financed at virtually no interest by the Rothschild controlled Bank of England, Britain then provoked the war of 1812 to recolonize the United States and force them back into the slavery of the Bank of England, or to plunge the United States into so much debt they would be forced to accept a new private central bank. And the plan worked.

Second Bank of the United States

Even though the War of 1812 was won by the United States, Congress was forced to grant a new charter for yet another private bank issuing the public currency as loans at interest, the Second Bank of the United States. Once again, private bankers were in control of the nation’s money supply and cared not who made the laws or how many British and American soldiers had to die for it.

Bank note from the Second Bank of the United States

If my sons did not want wars, there would be none.” — Gutle Schnaper, wife of Mayer Amschel Rothschild and mother of his five sons.


Complete article on What Really Happened



  1. This and the complete article should be compulsary reading and on the sylabis in years 11 and again year 12 in every school in Australia.
    For a corresponding video, see ‘All wars are banker’s wars’ at Mike Rivero’s site at.
    Bankers should be barred from our parliaments, unless they include the exposure by Rivero in all their election material and acknowledge the criminal role bankers play in mass murder, genocide and serial warmongering theft and destruction throughout the world.
    How about it, ex(?) Goldman Sacks Prime Minister Turnbull?
    You too, Tony Abbott.

        • ‘……banned……… if it got around..’
          Well let us see if they do, everyone send the article all around with this gumshoenews link. You owe it to and for your children and grandchildren!
          Maybe the fleeced sheep will then realise why and whom has shawn them for decades……….. and has had so many of our ‘ANZACS’ killed and maimed.
          How many more to be sacrificed Malcolm, for the bankers?

          • Sadly, very few will bother reading it. I share articles all the time and information all the time. Hardly anyone even looks at it. They’re all busy with their own little lives and seem to have no interest in the bigger picture.

        • Mary,
          Thinking is best encouraged when one is informed, thus the information should at least be provided to the year 11 and 12 students. Then we will not have the soldiers to be sacrificed!!!!

  2. War mass migration debt usury all part of the global agenda .
    What we have here is de facto communism .
    Good nations good people , but sadly , all leaders are corrupt puppets enforcing pure evil agenda of the hidden hand .

  3. “In 1944, Bank of England chief Montagu Norman suddenly quit his banking post in order to start a Tavistock spin-off called the National Association for Mental Health. Norman had been at the apex of the international financial oligarchy: One of his protégés, longtime Australian Reserve Bank head H.C. “Nugget” Coombs, called him the “head of a secret international freemasonry of central bankers.” As such, he had supervised the banking arrangements which put Adolf Hitler in power, as EIR History Editor Anton Chaitkin has documented. Norman tapped his Bank of England assistant, Sir Otto Niemeyer, to be the NAMH’s treasurer, and Niemeyer’s niece Mary Appleby, to be general secretary of the association. Niemeyer is well known to Australians: He headed the infamous “Niemeyer mission” to Depression-wracked Australia in 1930, to tell Australia to savagely cut its health and welfare spending, in order to pay her British creditors.”
    googled: Montagu Norman Tavistock Australia and found this
    -link with Mental Health of Interest to me–whole article was about Martin Bryant and Tavistock-Psychological Warfare department.

  4. Aristotle’s quote as the lead in header to this article gives a good indication of just how old the world control system is.

    In fact, the monetary system of control goes way back past Aristotle and the Greeks and into the shadows of ancient history.

    As Winston Churchill once quipped: “When people find out who really controls this world, and after they pick themselves up and dust themselves off, they continue on as if nothing happened.’

    Banks and Bankers have become the preferred means with which to affect monetary control over every country on Earth while the real controllers, those who pull the strings of the Banks and the Bankers, remain well hidden behind monarchies and parliaments using their influence through wealth and political power to affect changes and sometimes profoundly so.

    Nothing in world politics happens by chance – as a retiring British parliamentarian once quoted that only adds meaning to what Churchill once quipped.

    Fiat money (paper money) is intrinsically valueless, especially in times of high inflation, recession and depression as those who know their history realize. The Banking system as it now controls the West is a total fraud and a house of cards, just waiting to collapse.

    As to what is in store to replace the current fraudulent system only time will tell.

  5. Fantastic piece of work! After reading the entire article, I believe:

    1. We’ve already had a “ministry of Truth” for probably over 100 years.
    2. It seems clear a political solution is not possible.
    3. The dirty rats need to pay all of the national debt out of their personal holdings since their family members are responsible for it. If they end up destitute, that’s fine.

    • Speculator. There is a political solution to what ails us, but it will take a very determined and brave government to pull it off.

      My thoughts on that are this; A company or individual are able to declare bankruptcy under common law to save them from becoming completely insolvent, so why cannot a government do the same?

      The monies owed to the Bankers by various governments around the world is largely made up out of thin air – there is no intrinsic value to it other than what the Bankers say it is worth.

      This country sold its gold bullion reserve (not publicly heralded) to the World Bank back in 2002 just so the LNP could show a budget surplus of 20 Billion dollars in 2007 that the LNP could then crow about. But Rudd soon disposed of that ‘surplus’ while borrowing even more ‘money’ that no government since has bothered to rein in, only increase.

      And it is getting worse.

      There is no way that this country can ever pay back what it has borrowed since 2007 without drastic budget cuts, and not unless many of us are starved to death in the process. As I see it we have two choices, the huge financial problem we all now face will at some time have to be dealt with in higher inflation that will cripple us financially while providing even more wealth for those greedy Bankers or we can come up with another solution to get that monkey off our backs instead of continually kicking that can down the road as everyone in government now takes to doing.

      My solution is to tell the World Bank and its centralized Banking system to go to buggery. After all, and legally speaking, there really is not much that they can do to us apart from degrading our economy to junk status and refusing to loan us any more of their valueless fiat money. If that were to occur, we would then be on our own as far as any kind of economy goes and maybe that would hit our reset button for the better?

      • Let me just say a couple of things. First, I think you’re putting too much faith in the legitimacy of the “debt” and the entire system for that matter. Second, have you read the entire article by Michael Rivero? If not, I suggest that you go to the link at the bottom of this article and read the entire thing very carefully. Political solutions have been tried in this country since its inception to no avail. In fact, these banking types have only increased their own security within and outside of the system.

        After you’ve read the article in its entirety, I’d love to know your thoughts.

        • Speculator, this is a quote from my own post; ‘The monies owed to the Bankers by the various governments around the world is largely made up out of thin air – there is no intrinsic value to it other that what the Bankers say it is worth.’

          And likewise, there is no ‘legitimacy’ to any national debt other than what the politicians tell you it is because they have all become controlled by a Central Banking and intelligence system that is beholden to outside influence and is apart from the country it greedily rapes.

          Let me put this question to you. How many of our parliamentarians would you consider over any period of time from Federation on, have truly understood how the international Banking/intelligence system works?

          Our governments are controlled via the money and the intelligence as presented to them, not what they seek out. And that is a very important observation.

          In times past, what the ‘establishment’ put forth was generally accepted to be beneficial for all. Seldom was the status quo questioned as to its legitimacy. But, times have changed and now questions are being asked about where that ‘status quo’ has us headed. Unfortunately, the questions now being asked do not go to the fundamental aspects of how we now find ourselves in this place that is becoming increasingly suffocating to good government and economic/social viability, let alone surviving intact as a country that has never known wide spread violence.

          Many of those who know inhabit – and they believe as a career – our parliaments are straight out of university or the unions. Where is their life experience, let alone their actual working experience? Why would people such as these be concerned with economics when they have been indoctrinated to believe that the world runs itself and that all they have to do is to turn up to parliament and their electoral offices and pretend that they are interested in doing what they are doing?

          Which then brings me back to the only solution apart from bloodshed, the political solution, a solution that can be attained with the right people in place. And they would be those who understand how money works and how those who control it have always been fearful of us, the Plebs, in finding out how it is that we have been constantly ripped off over millenia by those who like to control and enjoy the best of what life offers obtained from those who stupidly slave for them because they have been trained via ‘education’ to do so.

          Henry Ford once noted, that if the people ever found out how the Banking system works they would be rioting in the streets the next day.

          • Yes, agreed, the “monies” (debt) were/was created from thin air and “money” has no intrinsic value. And, yes, all countries are either controlled in some way by this system or are currently defending their countries from becoming controlled by the system. I live in the U.S., but the system/cabal is international and wants to be the global controller. Where are you going to place the (locally elected, I assume) “right people” so that they can effect a political solution to an international problem? And what’s going to keep them from being assassinated or otherwise stopped?

            The people who slave for and do the dirty work of the cabal are, of course, mis-educated. But what political solution is going to change this when the cabal has no reservations about “assassinating” anyone who gets in their way? This includes presidents, congress members, senators, journalists, judges, lawyers, scientists, doctors, educators, etc., etc., etc. Even if you could find honorable people with the courage to take on this challenge, they’d have to be naive and/or somewhat stupid to step into such a scenario because any attempt to make meaningful changes is punished. We know this. It’s been happening in the U.S. since the country’s beginnings and continues to happen all the time, as I’m sure it does in other countries.

            Presidents Andrew Jackson, Zachary Taylor, James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, James Garfield, William McKinley all tried to remove the death grip that the bankers had over the financial system. Each of these people was targeted for assassination even though only four resulted in the death of the intended victim. Louis McFadden, congress member, continued the fight by trying to impeach corrupt government officials after the Federal Reserve Act was fraudulently signed into law and was finally assassinated. Apparently, this was enough to keep Federal Reserve opponents quiet for a time…until John F. Kennedy. Since then, apparently “attempts” have been enough to get presidents to toe the line. Some of us thought we had a good one in Obama and others thought they had a good one in Trump, but alas no. There are no “free and fair” elections. All candidates are now selected beforehand by the cabal. So please explain how a political situation could result in removing the cabal and the fraudulent monetary system?

            Neither a political solution nor a bloody revolution (which is really a political solution in the extreme) is an outside-the-box idea and are not the only possibilities. The offending parties always sit safely outside the fight and direct the action, working out strategies and tactics for their own benefit that will further their agenda after the fight is over. They’ve built themselves a “higher hill” to work from where they have a greater perspective than we do. They can see the interactions and the mechanics of how everything works together. They need money, technology, secrecy, and the assistance of others to keep their hill. Losing these things would create a more level playing field, but then they’d still have the advantage of knowledge that’s been hidden from us over a very long period of time.

            I’m not trying to be defeatist. I believe there will be a solution or a combination of solutions to relieve us from debt slavery and all of the problems caused by it, but they will most likely originate outside the political realm.

          • Speculator, I wouldn’t call you a defeatist, maybe a realist. All your points except one, which I will get to, have been well thought out and would be unsurmountable just a few short months ago, however things have now changed.

            Whether you realize it or not, there has been a paradigm shift in the ‘sheeple’s’ awareness of things in this world that appear to them to not be quite right.

            Also, there is an ongoing upheaval within the geopolitical, financial, industrial, military and intelligence conglomeration that will probably continue for some years to came.

            The election of Trump has not only heralded that upheaval and the awakening of the ‘sheeple’, but is now causing much concern within the ranks of those who control this world via that conglomeration. When a newly elected President is continually attacked from all sides except by those who actually voted for him, then such ongoing actions have the impact of awakening even more of those who could not quite put their finger on what is wrong with the way things now operate.

            If Trump can survive his first term in office then he will be re-elected for a second term and that is the time when the ‘swamp’ will be well and truly drained. The reactions to Trump’s win that we are witnessing now, and on a daily basis, is from people who have been utterly shocked by the election of an ‘unelectable’ President and who are jockeying for position based on their political allegiance and the prospect of their own longevity on the gravy train – their own self-interest.

            By their own words and actions those people are now being uncovered for what they truly represent and have become exposed for their true purpose.

            Political change is occurring right now and for the better, and all that it has taken to effect that change is the electing of one man who was not afraid of taking on those who have been pulling the strings of all of our governments for well over 100 years.

            If Le Pen is elected as the French President on May 7, then I would recommend to you to sit back and enjoy the ride because the Western world is changing, the political paradigm is shifting right and away from the totalitarian Left. Throughout Western history, what is spontaneously occurring in all Western countries and as well, simultaneously, is unprecedented.

            And it is in times such as this that we get the chance to clean out our own swamps, only this time, let’s do it properly!

          • All I really want to say in reply is that Donald Trump is no swamp drainer. He’s a swamp filler. I don’t know where this idea originated about him really draining the swamp in his second term, but I’ve heard it from several people. There will be no swamp to drain by then, which is not necessarily a bad thing if it’s possible to then pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and start all over again, but in a more mature and wiser fashion. Trump is no hero and no savior. Of course, I can’t convince anyone of this and don’t really want to. It just seems so completely obvious, but we’ll have to watch and see what happens.

          • I believe you are selling Trump way too short of his true impact and future potential.

            I would not term Trump a hero, but more an American Patriot, the kind of person that appears very thin on the ground today. He chose to run for office knowing of all the toes he would be necessarily treading on and some dangerous ones at that, yet there he is putting up with attacks from all sides, including from within, in his endeavour to change a country.

            You may not know this, but back in 1984/5? Trump appeared on an Oprah Winfrey show telling all who would listen that he was not happy with where America was headed. When asked if he would ever run for President he said he would think very seriously about it.

            I call that exhibit one – for Trump’s intentions and Patriotism.

            The doubting more mature and wiser person should be asking themselves why would a man who has made his own empire deliberately choose to place his own life and that of his family at risk to become a President intent on changing the course of an entire country when he could have easily just stuck to taking care of his own and remained out of harms way?
