Part 2: All Wars are Bankers’ Wars — “A Den of Vipers and Thieves” and Assassinations


Andrew Jackson, the 7th US President

By Michael Rivero

Once again the nation [United States] was plunged into debt, unemployment, and poverty by the predations of the private central bank, and in 1832 Andrew Jackson successfully campaigned for his second term as President under the slogan, “Jackson And No Bank!”

Andrew Jackson and the Second Bank of the United States

True to his word, Jackson succeeded in blocking the renewal of the charter for the Second Bank of the United States.

“Gentlemen! I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin!

You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal, (bringing his fist down on the table) I will rout you out!” — Andrew Jackson, shortly before ending the charter of the Second Bank of the United States.

(From the original minutes of the Philadelphia committee of citizens sent to meet with President Jackson (February 1834), according to Andrew Jackson and the Bank of the United States (1928) by Stan V. Henkels)

Shortly after President Jackson (the only American President to actually pay off the National Debt) ended the Second Bank of the United States, there was an attempted assassination which failed when both pistols used by the assassin, Richard Lawrence, failed to fire. Lawrence later said that with Jackson dead, “Money would be more plenty.”

Following the loss of its charter, the Second Bank of the United States tried to operate as a normal bank, but failed after just 5 years.

President Zachary Taylor

President Zachary Taylor opposed the creation of a new Private Central Bank, owing to the historical abuses of the First and Second Banks of the United States.

“The idea of a national bank is dead, and will not be revived in my time.” — Zachary Taylor

Taylor died on July 9, 1850 after eating a bowl of cherries and milk rumored to have been poisoned. The symptoms he displayed are consistent with acute arsenic poisoning.

President James Buchanan

President James Buchanan also opposed a private central bank. During the panic of 1857 he attempted to set limits on banks issuing more loans than they had actual funds, and to require all issued bank notes to be backed by Federal Government assets. He was poisoned with arsenic and survived, although 38 other people at the dinner died.

President James Buchanon

The public school system is as subservient to the bankers’ wishes to keep certain history from you, just as the corporate media is subservient to Monsanto’s wishes to keep the dangers of GMOs from you, and the global warming cult’s wishes to conceal from you that the Earth has actually been cooling for the last 16 years.

Thus is should come as little surprise that much of the real reasons for the events of the Civil War are not well known to the average American.

“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 associates in New York, 1863

President Abraham Lincoln

President Abraham Lincoln

When the Confederacy seceded from the United States, the bankers once again saw the opportunity for a rich harvest of debt, and offered to fund Lincoln’s efforts to bring the south back into the union, but at 30% interest. Lincoln remarked that he would not free the black man by enslaving the white man to the bankers and using his authority as President, issued a new government currency, the greenback. This was a direct threat to the wealth and power of the central bankers, who quickly responded.

Lincoln’s Greenback

“If this mischievous financial policy, which has its origin in North America, shall become endurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous without precedent in the history of the world. The brains, and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That country must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.” — The London Times responding to Lincoln’s decision to issue government Greenbacks to finance the Civil War, rather than agree to private banker’s loans at 30% interest.

In 1872 New York bankers sent a letter to every bank in the United States, urging them to fund newspapers that opposed government-issued money (Lincoln’s greenbacks).

“Dear Sir: It is advisable to do all in your power to sustain such prominent daily and weekly newspapers… as will oppose the issuing of greenback paper money, and that you also withhold patronage or favors from all applicants who are not willing to oppose the Government issue of money. Let the Government issue the coin and the banks issue the paper money of the country… [T]o restore to circulation the Government issue of money, will be to provide the people with money, and will therefore seriously affect your individual profit as bankers and lenders.” — Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler

“It will not do to allow the greenback, as it is called, to circulate as money any length of time, as we cannot control that.” — Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler

“Slavery is likely to be abolished by the war power, and chattel slavery destroyed. This, I and my European friends are in favor of, for slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care for the laborer, while the European plan, led on by England, is for capital to control labor by controlling the wages. THIS CAN BE DONE BY CONTROLLING THE MONEY.” — Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler

Goaded by the private bankers, much of Europe supported the Confederacy against the Union, with the expectation that victory over Lincoln would mean the end of the Greenback.

France and Britain considered an outright attack on the United States to aid the confederacy, but were held at bay by Russia, which had just ended the serfdom system and had a state central bank similar to the system the United States had been founded on.

Tsar Alexander II of Russia, who prevented France and Britain from invading the US during the civil war.

Alexander II immediately sent his fleet, headed by the frigate Oslabiya, to the New York bay. And he sent his Pacific flotilla to San Francisco with a special imperial order that it be placed under the direct command of Lincoln. Left free of European intervention, the Union won the war, and Lincoln announced his intention to go on issuing greenbacks.

Following Lincoln’s assassination, the Greenbacks were pulled from circulation and the American people forced to go back to an economy based on bank notes borrowed at interest from the private bankers.

Tsar Alexander II, who authorized Russian military assistance to Lincoln, was subsequently the victim of multiple attempts on his life in 1866, 1879, and 1880, until his assassination in 1881.

I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe.” — Abraham Lincoln

“The money power preys upon the nation in times of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, and more selfish than bureaucracy.” — Abraham Lincoln

“The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. By the adoption of these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity. ” — Abraham Lincoln

President Andrew Johnson

Andrew Johnson

In Andrew Johnson’s 1886 Fourth Annual Message (forerunner of the State of the Union), he dared question the validity and legitimacy of the accumulated debt. In particular the practice of allowing the banks to make loans using ink and paper but demanding repayment in silver and gold.

“The anomalous condition of our currency is in striking contrast with that which was originally designed. Our circulation now embraces, first, notes of the national banks, which are made receivable for all dues to the Government, excluding imposts, and by all its creditors, excepting in payment of interest upon its bonds and the securities themselves; second, legal tender, issued by the United States, and which the law requires shall be received as well in payment of all debts between citizens as of all Government dues, excepting imposts; and, third, gold and silver coin.

By the operation of our present system of finance however, the metallic currency, when collected, is reserved only for one class of Government creditors, who, holding its bonds, semiannually receive their interest in coin from the National Treasury… “

With the end of Lincoln’s Greenbacks, the US could no longer create its own interest free money and was manipulated during the term of President Ruthford B. Hayes into borrowing from the Rothschilds banking system in 1878, restoring to the Rothschilds control of the US economy they had lost under Andrew Jackson.

Messrs. Rothschild & Sons to Mr. Sherman.
[Cable message.]April 12,1878.
Hon. John Sherman,
Secretary of the Treasury, Washington D. C.:

Very pleased we have entered into relations again with American Government. Shall do our best to make the business successful.


President James Garfield

James A. Garfield was elected President in 1880 on a platform of government control of the money supply.

“The chief duty of the National Government in connection with the currency of the country is to coin money and declare its value. Grave doubts have been entertained whether Congress is authorized by the Constitution to make any form of paper money legal tender. The present issue of United States notes has been sustained by the necessities of war; but such paper should depend for its value and currency upon its convenience in use and its prompt redemption in coin at the will of the holder, and not upon its compulsory circulation. These notes are not money, but promises to pay money. If the holders demand it, the promise should be kept. — James Garfield

Whoever controls the volume of money in our 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.” — President James A. Garfield, two weeks before he was assassinated.

President James Garfield

President James Garfield was shot on July 2, 1881 and died of his wounds several weeks later Chester A. Arthur succeeded Garfield as President.

“There is too much loose talk nowadays about the danger of so much capital in the hands of a few men.” — Baron Alphonso Rothschild, 1892

President William McKinley

In 1896, William McKinley was elected President in the middle of a depression-driven debate over gold-backed government currency versus bank notes borrowed at interest from private banks. McKinley favored gold-backed currencies and a balanced government budget which would free the public from accumulating debt.

“Our financial system needs some revision; our money is all good now, but its value must not further be threatened. It should all be put upon an enduring basis, not subject to easy attack, nor its stability to doubt or dispute. Our currency should continue under the supervision of the Government. The several forms of our paper money offer, in my judgment, a constant embarrassment to the Government and a safe balance in the Treasury.” — William McKinley

President William McKinley

McKinley was shot by an out-of-work anarchist on September 14, 1901, in Buffalo, NY, succumbing to his wounds a few days later. He was succeeded in office by Theodore Roosevelt.

The Aldrich Plan

In 1910, Senator Nelson Aldrich, Frank Vanderlip of National City (Citibank), Henry Davison of Morgan Bank, and Paul Warburg of the Kuhn, Loeb Investment House met secretly on Jekyll Island, Georgia, to formulate a plan for a US central bank, and created the Aldrich Plan, which called for a system of fifteen regional central banks, openly and directly controlled by Wall Street commercial banks.

These banks would have the legal ability to create money out of thin air and represented an attempt to create a new Bank of the United States.

Public reaction was swift.

Do to the intense public opposition to the Aldrich Plan, the measure was defeated in the House of Representatives in 1912.

One year later the bankers would be back!


Complete article on What Really Happened



  1. Be interested to read rsearch on how our ‘independent from government’ Reserve bank operates, who owns it and who profits. G5; any ideas?

  2. Well researched article, banking or finance has been a bane for humanity since at least the time of Jesus, as you know He lost his cool some 2000 years ago, but the worst is the controlling financial lobby groups manipulating governments, and many outcomes such as war is a curse for really all that live on the planet, as we see in Syria, this war not only effects Syria but all people a sort of reflection of the moral decline that after all the wars of the past century and present era, that we are unable to learn by experience, a malaise of stupidity of all world leaders but also the voting public who have to share responsibility for this outcome.

  3. On June 4th 1963 Presideny Kennedy, by Presidential decree signed executive order 11110 which in effect stripped the US Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the US Federal Government at interest. (You know, the money invented out of thin air by the Fed for which the taxpayers are screwed to pay interest upon!) Thus putting the shysters and vipers out of their business
    Kennedy issued 4 billion in US GOVERMENT notes into circulation backed by silver. Those notes were distinct from Fed Reserve notes ……. the toilet paper now flushing around the world in the trillions and unable with interest to be honoured.
    6 months later Kennedy was murdered!
    For the history of the viper’s den read E. G. Griffin’s book; ‘The Creature from Jekyl Island’.
    Those countries not controlled by the viper system are invaded. Try Libya for one …… Gadaffi wanted to introduce a North African monetry system based on gold, Gadaffi ended up like Kennedy and the country is being presently destroyed with others named for destruction by General Wesley Clark to Amy Goodman in their interview in March 2007, not broadcast by our fake msm, shock jokes or our public broadcasters. ‘…. going to war sir, going to take down 7 countries in five years….. ‘ ( including Syria and Iran . Get the present picture readers?)
    Now you know why we invade countries who oppose banker snakes and our politicians aid and abett the bankers.
    Won’t see our federal politicians even realise who they sacrifice our soldiers for….. nor will the controlled fake msm banker mates inform the populace.
    CONGRATULATIONS to gumshenews.com for attempting to awaken the people and shame upon our fake politicians and media.
    Well done.
    Please support truth and pass on both parts of the article, you owe the knowledge of evil to be passed to your offspring and true Australians. ……… NO WAR.
    Get the message Turnbull? You going to be ‘Howard duped’ as well?

    • For many years the idea that Kennedy was assassinated for America taking control of money production, most citizens think that when they see on TV screens IMF or World bank its not understood that the 1% own and run these corporations, they are not government organizations, if you become a source of power leading to control that is not endorsed by old money you are a dead man walking.
      John Lennon did not understand the power he had, when he said we sell more Beetle albums than the Bible? that is signing your death warrant for example.

    • Berry, how about “All wars are RELIGIOUS BANKERS’ wars.”

      It does seem that the religion of Monsieur Diabolique is holding the top group united.

      Remember, the one that said to Eve, “Here, have a delicious apple”?

          • Thank you Berry, but the request was to Paul. This is the second time I have asked him to put his view on particular subjects forth to which he has yet to reply.

            Seems he doesn’t wish to argue his stance. He should realize that not being prepared to argue a point of view shows a lack of knowledge on the subject raised and that and a lack of response to any criticism tends to negate his own point of view.

          • If the Jews were considered outside the normal activities of a historical activity within society and allocated the duty that mainstream society felt had a side to it that was circumspect here I am reluctant to say usury? it would seem by default the Jews would become a forceful and powerful cartel that can be seen as a supreme manipulator of politicians and those in industrialization, to create wars or the ability to finance war as they chose fit, as can be seen by the Rothschild family in particular the financing achievement on two significant occasions, Cromwell and also the war between Britain and France, Napoleon, and WW1 and 2, as what degree with of the financial burden of WW1, placed on Germany, is of concern.
            Certainly Britain has played a big part in its contribution and joint collaboration with the Jews, is in my opinion significant.
            As most Gumshoe clients know the wealth of the Rothschilds is considerable if not supreme in particular operating as a covert organization, if we look at Israel, we can see what many consider a moral dilemma that is what many feel a Jewish involvement that having connections with finance, militarism, and the Imperialist powers, that also many feel in connected with the destruction of the Middle East.
            The vagaries such as Bryant, and other inquiries of a similar nature other than being of a micro value, of the bigger picture, the macro; considering the widespread destruction of the Middle East and destruction throughout the world, such as would be of concern to Pilger, and those who think along similar ideologies.
            Te control of money and the culture that surrounds this an military requires further investigation, as yet we are not privy to know who are controlling the conflicts now besieging our planet, I suggest we are still attempting resolve conflict within the framework of 19th century applications that are now redundant.

          • Thank you, downreford, for your response in place of Paul.

            But, how can you be sure that what you have put forward to me is Paul’s thinking?

            Your comment reflects recently recorded history, the exposure of which generally attributes the controlling influences around the world to the Jew. When one looks back further into history, history that is not easily available to the un-inquisitive, then one can appreciate that whatever is the controlling forces of the world today has been at it for much longer than what many will choose to believe.

            For example ; Even the Sumerians were subject to outside influences.

            If what you have put up is the sum total of how you perceive the world to work, then I would suggest to you that you delve a little deeper into pre-history to understand why we are where we are in modern times and how ideology has been used to manipulate humanity.

            For example; Did you know it was the Jesuits, and not Marx, who perfected the ideology of Communism.

          • Nemesis, I was not stating Paul’s position but mine, as Paul did not step in I did, the Sumerian’s are going back some four and half thousand year or so? as far as I am concerned going back to Cromwell is far enough, I hope Nem, you are not posturing as a academic of great learning as that is all to much for me, if so what your reading list of what is relevant? on this issue? I am centrally outlining some four hundred years ago re Cromwell and possible if we bring Jesus into it some two thousand years, with reference to the Jews and the killing of Christ as in the court said the Jews let this be upon us? now I do not want to labor on this passage as it could develop into the realm of WW2, as far as Germany go’s, at least with the idea of Germany ideology of socialism, although this is to my mind a deviation of politics and power, some would argue Jesus was a socialist.
            With reference from Sumerian history to Marx and the Jesuits that I find some difficulty in seeing the reference other than Marx a Jew, who was in the Britain as a criminal wanted by Germany and he took refuge into a dubious and complex set of books that makes no sense other than he being financed to write in the British Museum supported by a capitalist who wrote anti capitalist ideology that contributed to vast amounts of death in Russia and elsewhere, as for as Jesuits are concerned they are the elite of the Vatican and as such notwithstanding they are sort of clever but are a club of neurotic’s.and are fairly dated in what ever they think.
            I suggest your comment of perfected communism is a misunderstanding of communism, communism is not to be a condition of perfection but a constant evolution of ideas and modifications that suit the circumstance of the times of human evolution.

          • downreford, any good investigator will always seek the source as in the beginning of the story he/she wishes to understand. One cannot break into a period of history and begin from there, which is akin to start reading a novel from the last chapters – the story obviously will not make any sense.

            A story, and in order to understand completely, must be started from the beginning, and so it is with history, especially human history in order to understand the entire story.

            Believe it or not, the Bible has much to learn from as most of its contents contain relevant historical references that have been investigated and cross checked for authenticity and accuracy. Even acknowledged Archeologists will use the Bible to reference their ‘digs’- and that simple reliance on a very old book says much to me about Biblical knowledge.

            But, there are other aspects to history that is not covered by that book and human activity, idealism and day to day living has been perverted by Men in order to control other Men. Organized religion is one such ideal, and that includes Communism, arising from the fancy of Socialist ideals as a counter to organized religion when in fact, there is very little difference in how both systems operate through totalitarian mind control.

            If you believe that you can champion Communism as a constant evolution of ideas then you really have not studied how Communism first came about and for what purpose – hence my suggestions to you in my first comment about the Jesuits.

            Like the Masons, the Jesuits have two levels to their system and only the most radical thinking gets past middle base.

            If you have been paying attention to what the current Pope is doing, that should give you some clues as to the ultimate goal of the Vatican’s SS.(Jesuits)

            Mark Twain once quipped; ‘There are two major events in everyone’s life, the first is to be born and the second is to find out why we were born.’

            I’m no historical scholar, but I have taken the time to learn many things that others choose not to.

          • Really? Well, your own comments on this blog are not reflected in your reply. And if you truly believe that then why bother learning anything?

            Truth is self evident and is not open to interpretation except by those who wish to not see it.

          • History is a problem as to who is giving the account and why its interpretation is so,I have in the past debated upon the potato famine in Ireland as to whether this was a act of genocide from what I remember of the pros and cons of some two thousand comments it became ambiguous as to whether or not? this was not that long ago?
            What is objectionable about your comments to me is the moral high ground you take, it is as if you assume you are a authority on history,it is your certainty that becomes questionable?
            Are you a academic? not that this matters but you may have little knowledge as to what you are on about other than quoting Wiki.
            My point is what quotes and meanings I am making is always questionable, that is the possibility of some angle that changes meaning that one was not privy to, although at the time of comment was said in all good faith, on a ABC, a physicist were discussing facts and repetition of becoming a fact as verifiable? so the analogy was the Sun comes up? as expected, the question is does the Sun come up at all? I question, regardless although the same has occurred for millions of years does not mean this phenomena will keep happening.

          • History is history, and authentication of history can be achieved by cross referencing which any good investigator will do. At some point in one’s life, one has to form opinions on what one has learned, but having an opinion should not cause the closing of the mind to other possibilities which will always surprise.

            The English ‘establishment’ have much history in persecuting the Irish, and the Scot, even Oliver Cromwell did that. By researching the causes for such persecution instead of relying on ‘comments’ you would have arrived at your answer.

            I take no moral high ground, and if you believe I have, please point that out to me where I have done what you suggest.

            What does it matter if I am or am not, an ‘academic’?

            I don’t have much faith in Wikipedia as it is too open to manipulation and political leanings – I have a library at home, maybe that will ease your mind.

            Sites such as this blog can also be a valuable learning tool for those who wish to expand their knowledge as the posts appear to me to be well researched and not just based on opinion.

          • Hi Nemo, our problem is existential, your ideology is different to mine, the reason I ask about academia is it carries a weight of becoming radical, as if the study of the correct stuff is correct, I am extremely suspicious of those who go through the system? if you do not mind are you Jewish or have a connection?
            I have also a job, that is I am involved with my dog and she is a beagle, she is the most difficult dog, I have a relationship problem that takes time and other commitments, so may not have the amount of time you have for study, also being solitary I have little assistance in what I do I hope this clarifies our situation, all the same keep well and the good work up.

          • Thank you for the kind words downreford.

            As they say, life is a learning curve that we all have to navigate, and the only way one may know when history as recorded is accurate, apart from actually living it, is to familiarize oneself with many views – of those many views there will always be elements of the individual recording that will tend to substantiate the other individual recordings – that is when one arrives at the evidence for the recording or a dot to join with the other dots one has picked up on their learning curve and that go toward the completion of the Big Picture.

            I’m not Jewish, in fact at one time in my life I was once very anti-Jewish – that is until I began to study real history as compared to what passes for ‘history’ in government ‘education’.

            I believe we all have a connection with Judaism – it is called Christianity, a system of belief that used to be the bedrock of our Western civilization and that provided the New Testament.

            I was medically discharged from NSW Police over a decade ago, so I have lots of time on my hands as compared to your own circumstance – but history is not a subject that can learned or taught over night – you must be prepared to spend years at it, as I have, in learning.

            My neighbor has a Beagle – noisy bugger! (grin)

            Idealism is based on what could be – more wishful thinking than how life really works. It is Individuality that made the West the leading civilization, not idealism, and in most aspects it still is, but for how much longer I often wonder, will we be. And there are aspects to idealism – I call them the ‘sweet lies’ – that tend to sway the dreamer or the just plain dumb into believing those sweet lies.

            Good luck with all your endeavours, remember to keep that mind open to all possibilities and never leave any rock unturned in your learning.

          • Nem,lucky you have had a discharge from your job to enable you to work on such a stimulating level.
            I do not want you to think I am anti Jewish, I believe their is a powerful group within the Jewish culture of finance, my difference with Hitler is he felt I think in part the same except that he decision to annihilate all Jews for the a small elite if Jews that he felt had compromised Germany and debt, whereas I think his generalization was a over simplification of the problem Germany had.

          • Hitler’s direction re; the Jews came mainly from his early association within the Theosophist society, who in the main were Catholics. Until that time he had no antipathy at all toward the Jew as he actually fought side by side with them in WW1 – but he willingly used them later as a scapegoat to advance his own political career.

            So what changed his thinking? I believe it was the Protocols of the Elders of Zion as propagated through the Theosophist Society.

            I have found over time that many attribute the writing of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion to a Jewish sect – my research has found this to be wrong as have many others because it appears that the Jesuits were the original drafters of that document with the intention of blaming the Jews in what I would term a definite intent to cause a false flag.

            Like the Russian Revolution.

            But then one would need to research Karl Marx, where he was educated and who it was that set him up with money and status to pen a book called the Communist Manifesto that really cannot be attributed to Marx’s thinking, but to the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

  4. Merriam Webster Dictionary definiion of VIPER:

    1. (a) a common Eurasian venomous snake (Vipera berus) that attains a length of about two feet (0.6 meter), (b) : a venomous or reputedly venomous snake

    2. a vicious or treacherous person

    • Revised definition of viper.

      • Ned, you forgot SMUG. The other day I was listening to a Youtube interview of the late Lynn Sharman, mind control, and she mentioned the smug pleasure expressed by doctors [HISSSING DOCTORS?] as they pulled forward her eyeball and placed an implant behind it.

        They said “No matter what symptoms she ever presents to a doctor they will never think to look behind her eye.”
