In 1835, President Andrew Jackson declared his disdain for the international bankers:”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.
The money power preys upon the nation in time of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me, and causes me to tremble for the safety of our country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the republic is destroyed.
President James Abram Garfield, our 20th President, had previously been Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations and was an expert on fiscal matters. (Upon his election, among other things, he appointed an unpopular collector of customs at New York, whereupon the two Senators from New York–Roscoe Conkling and Thomas Platt–resigned their seats.) President Garfield openly declared that ““Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce.”
After only four months in office, President Garfield was shot at a railroad station on July 2, 1881
This [Federal Reserve Act] establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President [Wilson} signs this bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be legalized….the worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill. From now on, depressions will be scientifically created.
— Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh Sr. , 1913
“We have, in this country, one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board. This evil institution has impoverished the people of the United States and has practically bankrupted our government. It has done this through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.” — Congressman Louis T. McFadden in 1932 (Rep. Pa)
“When the Federal Reserve Act was passed, the people of these United States did not perceive that a world banking system was being set up here. A super-state controlled by international bankers and industrialists…acting together to enslave the world…Every effort has been made by the Fed to conceal its powers but the truth is–the Fed has usurped the government.”
McFadden may have paid with his life for his outspokenness. After he lost his congressional seat in 1934, he remained in the public eye as a vigorous opponent of the financial system; that is, until his sudden death on October 3, 1936, of a “dose” of “intestinal flu” after attending a banquet in New York City.”
There were two previous attempts on Louis McFadden’s life. Two bullets were fired at him on one occasion and later he was poisoned at a banquet.
Evidently the third time the assassins succeeded, and the most articulate critic of the Federal Reserve and the financiers’ control of the nation was dead. He was 60 years old.
Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corr[pt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.
==Theodore Roosevelt, 1912
President John F. Kennedy planned to exterminate the Federal Reserve System. In 1963 he signed Executive Orders EO-11 and EO-110, returning to the government the responsibility to print money, taking that privilege away from the Federal Reserve System.
Why do we always refuse to listen or listen without comprehension? Why is that we have been warned almost continuously by our leaders, who, in moments of an epiphany of candor try and tell us the truth. A truth which when told might endanger their own lives? Fighting finance capital has proved itself a very dangerous undertaking, no matter how high the profile or presumed political power–and this applies to those who have and do oppose the rule of finance and fascist capital in every land on this earth.
Russia appears to be the next target.
In another scene of the film “The Truman Show”, one of the actresses, disgusted with her unethical role, confronts the program director and complains that everything in the show is a lie: “You’re a liar and a manipulator. What you’ve done to Truman is sick. Don’t you ever feel guilty?”
The director’s reply is highly revealing: “While the world he inhabits is in some aspects counterfeited, there’s nothing fake about Truman himself.” Another actor fully agrees with the director: “It’s all true. It’s all real. Nothing here is faked. Nothing you see in the show is faked. It’s merely controlled.”
The world we live in today, which more and more is turning into a totalitarian nightmare, is just the beginning of the implementation of what the Council on Foreign Relations conspirators call the New World Order. It is the result of more than a century of manipulation by the conspirators behind the curtains.
Most of what today we take for granted and perfectly natural -women working outside the home and bringing their children to schools where they are brain washed, a growing majority of children born out of wedlock , the extensive practice of abortion, the promotion of homosexuality, the growing violence in society and the diminishing value of human life, the extensive use of drugs (both illegal and prescription), the loss of individual freedom, the implementation of a police state, just to mention a few -is not the result of random natural forces or chance, it has been carefully planned this way.
On the eve of entering WWII, Prime Minister Winston Churchill told the British people:
If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may be even a worse fate. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves.
The demise of our Constitutional Republic has been underway for nearly a hundred years as the people placidly accepted intolerable offenses against the republic, the states, and the Constitution for decades. The Invisible Government of the United States has grown ever more powerful, ever more abusive, and ever more disconnected from the American people. The Invisible Government has committed the most egregious offenses against the people, the states and the Constitution.
Almost since the founding of our Republic and today, the Invisible Government has been operating as a virtual dictatorship against the governed, beyond the scope and authority the people granted the legitimate government in the Constitution and at odds with the will of the vast majority of American citizens. The actions of the Invisible Government of the United States in total, rise to the level of treason against the United States and its people. This must not be permitted to continue.
This must be stopped by any means necessary.
For more than a century, this small group of conspirators has been waging a quiet, non-declared war of attrition against us, the American people, and it seems that they are now ready for the final, decisive battle.
==I Dare Call It Treason, Servando Gonzalez
Politicians, a moribund labor movement, and the mass media—either cowed or in the service of corporate power—assure the population that the old prosperity is still attainable, but via a different route. Prosperity will no longer come from expanding the manufacturing base, which characterized the very real prosperity of working men and women immediately after World War II. The neoliberal version of the promise of rising living standards is based on the fallacy of economic deregulation and financialization. Let us be rich, the elites say, and you will share in the spoils. All you have to do is work hard, obey the rules, and believe in yourself. This myth is disseminated across the political spectrum. It is the essential message peddled by everyone from Oprah and the entertainment industry to the Christian Right and positive psychologists. But this promise, as the masses of underemployed and unemployed are discovering, is a fiction.
==Wages of Rebellion (Hedges, Chris)
For some time now, I have been analyzing American history in the light of what I have called structural deep events: events, like the JFK assassination, the Watergate break-in, Iran-Contra, or 9/11, which repeatedly involve law-breaking or violence, are mysterious to begin with, are embedded in ongoing covert processes, have political consequences that enlarge covert government, and are subsequently covered up by systematic falsifications in the mainstream media and internal government records. The more I study these deep events, the more I see suggestive similarities between them, increasing the possibility that they are not unrelated external intrusions on American history, but parts of an endemic process, sharing to some degree or other a common source.
For example, one factor linking Dallas, Watergate, Iran-Contra, and 9/11, has been the involvement in all four deep events of personnel involved in America’s highest-level emergency planning, known since the 1950s as Continuity of Government (COG) planning, or more colloquially inside the Pentagon as “the Doomsday Project.” A few of these actors may have been located at the top, as overseers of the secret COG system. Others – including some I shall talk about today – were located further down in its secret communications network.
Despite strong opposition, on June 24 the US Senate passed the Fast Track bill 1,2 (known as Trade Promotion Authority or TPA) that gives the President carte blanche to negotiate and finalize free trade deals in complete secrecy, which brings us one step closer to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).The TPP, which appears to be nothing short of a corporate takeover of global powers, has the legal ability to thwart all future attempts at protecting the public from genetically engineered (GE) foods. For this and many other reasons, the TPP must be stopped.
Of course the fast tract bill has already been signed by the President–and the American people have been sacrificed on the alter of the transnational corporate/fascist capitalist class. Our guts have already been ripped out and our life blood will drain away over the next few years, that is if not well before. We are nothing but sheep.
