"The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the People vs. the Banks." - Lord Acton
"The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson — and I am not wholly excepting the Administration of W. W. The country is going through a repetition of Jackson's fight with the Bank of the United States — only on a far bigger and broader basis." - President Franklin D. Roosevelt (Letter to Col. Edward Mandell House, November 21, 1933)
"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." - President Andrew Jackson
"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 the money and its issuance." - James Madison
"And the banks -- hard to believe in a time when we're facing a banking crisis that many of the banks created -- are still the most powerful lobby on Capitol Hill. And they frankly own the place." - Senator Dick Durbin
"No King ever existed without the permission of the priesthood. I don't care what religion you're talking about or what period of history you're talking about. It is the truth. The Kings never had the power and don't to this day. Kings exist at the whim of the real power which is the priesthoods standing behind the throne. And when the King cease to be of benefit to the priesthood they will simply poison him, or get rid of him in some other way." - William Cooper. The quote is from the 06:08 - 06:36 mark in this video.
"Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws." - Mayer Amschel Rothschild
I think works of mythology and fantasy fiction like 'The Lord of the Rings' contain more historical truths than the average history textbook. History is not cut and dry as it is often told by textbook writers, it is a great and mysterious drama, even better than a fantasy story. The objective truth is better perceived by the eyes of artists and authors who understand that the facts of any historical age or social system is not recoverable by looking at the surface of things while ignoring the little details and minor characters who make the wheels of power turn. Read fantasy books if you want to know about the true nature of power, how kingdoms are ruled, why governments make war, and what kind of games are played by power-hungry traitors and thieves who like to gain possession of kingdoms, enslave their peoples, and plunder all the treasures.
What I've learned from reading mythology and watching fantasy films is that if a true King acts for the good of his land he is poisoned, brought under the influence of magical spells and thought manipulation, or killed. There are always snakes who fester around the King's chambers, and misdirect the warriors and the people for their own pleasure and profit. In the modern age the snakes are the global private bankers and corporatists who steal hundreds of billions of dollars from the people and rape entire countries.
The public face of any kingdom or country can be directed and maneuvered to do the bidding of the hidden rulers who make up the unelected priesthood, and if the King acts against their interests then he is killed, as William Cooper said. John F. Kennedy met this fate because his rebellious and independent spirit was a big threat to the powerful establishment in Washington.
America has never suffered from the tyranny of the Clergy, but in its place there has lurked another kind of priesthood which has sought to control its government ever since it was created: the priesthood of money, or international banking.
Benjamin Franklin and George Washington despised the Bank of England even more than the British Empire. Before Washington raised the sword against the British King he went to war with his pocketbook and became self-sufficient, debt-free, and truly independent. Washington took care of his finances before he ever thought about going to war. He knew that a man can't fight for freedom if he is in debt, and neither can a nation enjoy its fruits if its fate is in the hand of foreign creditors.
I never learned about the founding fathers' views on money and banking in school but I wish I had because the American revolution can't be understood without recognizing the hatred against the Bank of England for its abusive lending practices and its manipulation of credit in the American colonies. The American founding fathers were truly revolutionary because they opposed the power of the money changers.
Although the revolution was won in 1783, the war for America never ended, and it is still being waged today. The banking clerics made it their mission to enslave America through debt, and demonize and kill the leaders who resisted their thirst for control. They were victorious in 1913 when they created the Federal Reserve Bank and thereafter instituted the unjust income tax. This move signaled the end of America's constitutional republic and the end of freedom in America.
In most civilizations the priests rule but in America the bankers rule. Instead of the Vatican and a Pope, America has Wall Street and a Fed Chairman. The big banks on Wall Street don't serve America but foreign, private banks that operate internationally. What is good for Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and JPMorgan Chase is bad for the American people. What is good for the private owners of the Federal Reserve Bank is bad for America. What is good for the IMF and the World Bank is bad for humanity.
It is us or them, "the People vs. the Banks," as Lord Acton said. Life does not get anymore clear than this. There will never be freedom in America or anywhere in the West if the banking terrorists, the "suicide bankers," as Max Keiser puts it, are not dethroned and brought to justice for their crimes against humanity. Electing another puppet as President or Prime Minister won't change anything in the big picture. Barack Obama has no power. The American President is beholden to the terrorists of international finance. They hold the destiny of America and the West in their hands by controlling the circulation of credit and using debt as a weapon to get what they want.
It is time we look them in the eyes and follow the example of Andrew Jackson, who said: "You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal God, I will rout you out!"
