Mayer Amschal Rothschild (1744 – 1812), The Federal Reserve, and John F Kennedy
by Dee McLachlan
(Michael Rivero, who lives in Hawaii, created a video that would put a stop to war right now if people would watch it. It is called “All wars are bankers wars“. It is time now for everyone to give up their innocence and see what has been going on — namely, any leader who stood in the way of private central bankers, landed up being killed. Much of this article is a condensed adaptation.)
I had dinner with a banker last week. I tried to get him to explain how money was created — but he insisted that money was not printed out of thin air.
Then what about the Fed’s Quantitative Easing? I asked. But he had an answer for everything. I felt bamboozled. Consider another banker, Sir Joseph Stamp. He was the President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, and the second richest man in Britain. He said:
“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."
And this is what Wikipedia has to say on fractional banking:
“Lord Adair Turner, formerly the UK’s chief financial regulator, said “Banks do not, as too many textbooks still suggest, take deposits of existing money from savers and lend it out to borrowers: they create credit and money ex nihilo — a Latin phrase meaning “out of nothing” — extending a loan to the borrower and simultaneously crediting the borrower’s money account.”
Economists like Jesús Huerta de Soto and Murray Rothbard have said fractional-reserve banking should be criminalized — and that it’s a form of embezzlement and/or financial fraud.
Governments have been encouraged to legalize this creating money ex nihilo by powerful rich bankers. And if leaders don’t comply, then expect trouble. I summarize 12 examples below.
Opposing Bankers Could Be Detrimental To Your Health
Many leaders who tried to change the banking system were assassinated. It may be coincidence, but the assassinations paved the way for banking law reform that advantaged the money lenders.
In 1763, Benjamin Franklin, the founding father of the United States, argued against the Currency Acts (1751 and 1764) passed by King George III.
It outlawed all forms of money-production in the colonies. The people were forced to conduct all commerce using bank notes borrowed at interest from the Bank of England.
“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 of the US
Following the revolution, the new independent nation, the US, actually took steps to keep the bankers out of the new government!
“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, fourth President of the United States from 1809 to 1817.
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,” his pals succeeded in setting up a new Private Central Bank called the First Bank of the United States. That was in 1791.
By the end of its twenty-year charter this First Bank of the United States had almost ruined the nation’s economy, while enriching the bankers. An on-the-ball Congress refused to renew the charter.
Nathan Mayer Rothschild threatened, “Either the application for renewal of the charter is granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war.”
- Spencer Perceval — Shot in the Chest (1812)
The British Prime Minister at the time, Spencer Perceval, was adamantly opposed to war with the United States. Perceval was assassinated, shot when he entered the lobby of the House of Commons. A man stepped forward, drew a pistol and shot him in the chest (the only British Prime Minister to be assassinated in office).
The assassin, John Bellingham, was said to have a grudge against the government for not being compensated. He was declared insane and hung.
Percival was replaced by Robert Banks Jenkinson, the 2nd Earl of Liverpool, who was fully supportive of a war to recapture the colonies.
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. As usual, it issued the public currency as “loans at interest.” This was the Second Bank of the United States. Once again, private bankers were in control of the nation’s money supply.
2. Andrew Jackson Survives Shooting (1834)
In 1832 Andrew Jackson successfully campaigned for his second term as President under the slogan, “Jackson And No Bank!” 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... You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal, I will rout you out!" -- Andrew Jackson 1834, shortly before ending the charter of the Second Bank of the United States.
Shortly after President Jackson ended that bank, there was an attempted assassination which failed when both pistols used by the assassin, Richard Lawrence, failed to fire. Lawrence spent the rest of his life in a mental institution, and no connections to Jackson’s political rivals was found. He later said that with Jackson dead, “Money would be more plenty.”
3. President Zachary Taylor Poisoned (1850)
"The idea of a national bank is dead, and will not be revived in my time." -- Zachary Taylor
President Zachary Taylor opposed the creation of a new Private Central Bank. He 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.
4. President James Buchanan Survives Poisoning (1857)
President James Buchanan also opposed a private central bank. During the panic of 1857 he attempted to set limits on banks issuing loans for a greater amount that they held in funds.
And he required 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.
5. President Abraham Lincoln — Shot 1865
When the southern states seceded from the United States, the bankers once again saw an opportunity for a rich harvest of debt, so to speak.
They offered to fund President Lincoln’s efforts to bring the south back into the union, but would charge 30% interest for this cash. Lincoln remarked that he would not free the black man by enslaving the white man to the bankers. He claimed the authority to issue a new government currency, the greenback.
President Abraham Lincoln
Goaded by the private bankers, much of Europe supported the Confederacy against the Union. They hoped victory over Lincoln would mean the end of the greenback. The Union won the war, and Lincoln announced his intention to go on issuing greenbacks.
“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.
Lincoln was shot during a play by actor John Wilkes Booth in 1865.
Following Lincoln’s assassination, the greenbacks were pulled from circulation and the American people were forced to go back to an economy based on bank notes borrowed at interest from the private bankers. After this they never again had an “internal” national currency, despite the fact that the Constitution specifies for one (in Artcle I, section 8).
6. President James Garfield — Shot 1881
James A. Garfield was elected President in 1880 on a platform of government control of the money supply.
"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 was shot on July 2, 1881, by Charles J. Guiteau at the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad Station in Washington, D.C. He died from his wounds 10 weeks later, on September 19.
7. President William McKinley — Shot (1901)
In 1896, when William McKinley was elected President, there was a debate going on, driven by a Deprssion. The debate was 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.
McKinley was shot by an 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 (1912) and The Federal Reserve
The Federal Reserve — It is neither “Federal” nor does it have any actual “Reserves”.
In 1910, a secret meeting took place in Georgia on the privately owned Jekyll Island. Attendees were: Senator Nelson Aldrich, Frank Vanderlip of National City (Citibank), Henry Davison of Morgan Bank, and Paul Warburg. Once again, they formulated a plan for a US central bank. The Aldrich Plan would give banks the legal ability to create money out of thin air.
Due to intense public opposition, the Aldrich Plan was defeated in the House of Representatives in 1912. But in 1913, the Private Central Bankers of Europe, in particular the Rothschilds of Great Britain and the Warburgs of Germany, met with their American financial collaborators once again on Jekyll Island, Georgia to form a new central banking cartel.
Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act over Christmas holiday 1913, while members of Congress opposed to the measure were at home.
President Woodrow Wilson signed it, but later regretted that decision.
"I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit. We are no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men." -- Woodrow Wilson 1919
The World Wars — A Boom Time for Banking
This is observed in the “Federal Reserve History” records at federalreservehistory.org:
“The Federal Reserve faced its first major test during World War I, helping to finance the war by facilitating war bond sales… it emerged as a major player on the world stage after the war as it developed into a full-fledged central bank.”
During World War I the German Rothschilds loaned money to the Germans, the British Rothschilds loaned money to the British, and the French Rothschilds loaned money to the French. The Rothschilds were also said to have controlled three European news agencies, Wolff (est. 1849) in Germany, Reuters (est. 1851) in England, and Havas (est. 1835) in France.
Following the Treaty of Versailles, Germany was ordered to pay the war costs of all the participating nations. When the National Socialists took power in Germany, their first move was to issue their own state currency which was not borrowed from private central bankers. Germany blossomed. The media called it “The German Miracle”.
"Germany's unforgivable crime before WW2 was its attempt to loosen its economy out of the world trade system and to build up an independent exchange system from which the world-finance couldn't profit anymore. ...We butchered the wrong pig." - Winston Churchill (The Second World War - Bern, 1960)
8. Louis T. McFadden — Poisoned
Louis T. McFadden was the chair of the House Banking and Currency Committee during the twenties. He used his position in Congress to crusade against the Federal Reserve.
"Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal reserve banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a Government board, has cheated the Government of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt. - - Louis T. McFadden, June 10, 1932
He moved to impeach President Herbert Hoover in 1932 and introduced a resolution to bring conspiracy charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve.
There were several attempts on his life. In the first assassination attempt, McFadden dodged two bullets fired at him at close range. The second was when McFadden was poisoned at a banquet. In 1936, he was taken ill at his hotel and died of coronary thrombosis, but many speculate his death as suspicious. The most outspoken, and articulate critic of the Federal Reserve being silenced forever.
9. President, John F. Kennedy
President, John F. Kennedy understood the predatory nature of private central banking. He understood why Andrew Jackson fought so hard to end the Second Bank of the United States. So Kennedy wrote and signed Executive Order 11110 which ordered the US Treasury to issue a new public currency, the United States Note.
President John F. Kennedy
Kennedy’s United States Notes were not borrowed from the Federal Reserve but created by the US Government and backed by the silver stockpiles held by the US Government. It represented a return to the system of economics the United States had been founded on, and was perfectly legal for Kennedy to do. Four and one half billion dollars went into public circulation.
Five months later John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas Texas, and the United States Notes pulled from circulation and destroyed.
10. Judge Mahoney — Posioned
The case of First National Bank of Montgomery vs. Jerome Daly was about the mortgage for Lot 19, Fairview Beach, Scott County, Minnesota. Daly argued that since the bank simply wrote a number in a ledger to create the loaned money out of think air, there was no real value and therefore no legally binding consideration.
Bill Drexler, who assisted in the case, wrote:
“I really didn’t believe Jerome’s [Daly] theory, and thought he was making this up. After I heard the testimony of the banker, my mouth had dropped open in shock, and I was in complete disbelief… Jerome Daly had taken on the banks, the Federal Reserve Banking System, and the money lenders, and had won.
“Justice Mahoney heard the banker testify that he could create money out of thin air, and said, “It sounds like fraud to me…”
A few months later, in June 1969, the judge was dead — allegedly poisoned on a fishing trip.
Drexler was alleged to have written:
“The money boys that run the ‘private Federal Reserve Bank’ soon got back at Mahoney by poisoning him in what appeared to have been a fishing boat accident (but with his body pumped full of poison).”
Gold Goes and The Petrodollar Pawns
On August 15th, 1971, President Richard Nixon “temporarily” suspended the gold convertibility of the US Federal Reserve Notes. Many global currencies started to delink from the US dollar. Nixon started the environmental movement, with “wilderness zones”and pledged those pristine lands and their vast mineral resources as collateral on the national debt — and collateral for foreign lenders.
Then the US approached the world’s oil producing nations. In exchange for only selling their oil for dollars, the United States would guarantee the military safety of those oil-rich nations. The concept was labeled the “petrodollar”.
11. A Weapon of Mass Destruction — Saddam Hussein
Iraq, already hostile to the United States following Desert Storm, demanded the right to sell their oil for Euros in 2000 and in 2002. One year later the United States re-invaded Iraq under the lie of Saddam’s nuclear weapons, lynched Saddam Hussein, and placed Iraq’s oil back on the world market only for US dollars.
In 2007 we learned of the Pentagon memo to destroy seven countries.
Retired General Wesley Clark blew the whistle on US plans to conquer the oil-rich Middle East. He was told of a memo at the Pentagon in 2001. According to Clark, the master plan for the “dollarification” of the world’s oil nations included seven targets, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran (Venezuela, which dared to sell their oil to China for the Yuan, is a late addition).
These original seven nations originally targeted were not members of the Bank for International Settlements, the private central bankers private central bank, located in Switzerland. This meant that these nations were deciding for themselves how to run their nations’ economies, rather than submit to the international private banks.
12. Muammar Gaddafi and the Gold Dinar
Over in Libya, Muammar Gaddafi had instituted a state-owned central bank and a value based trade currency, the Gold Dinar.
Gaddafi announced that Libya’s oil was for sale, but only for the Gold Dinar. Libya was “invaded”, it’s leader murdered and a private central bank imposed on the people. They returned Libya’s oil output to the dollar. The gold that was to have been made into the Gold Dinars, 144 tons of it, is as of last report, unaccounted for.
Debt and the control of currency is a perfect and brilliant way to to “enslaving” an entire population with their full acceptance and compliance. And it will keep most of humanity trapped in poverty and conflict.
For those at the top of this pyramid, there is no way to fail. What is extraordinary, is that this is multi-generational. Century after century. Politicians, bankers and the elite see this monetary debt system as the way it should work. Our minds have been warped into believing that one entity is allowed to create financial wealth out of nothing — and for another entity, this becomes a crime.
