The Dark Shadow of American Tyranny
Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the U.S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it. President Woodrow Wilson
The Presidential campaign of 1912 was one of the worst political upsets in American history. The incumbent, William Howard Taft, was a popular president, and the Republicans had majority in both houses. The challenger, Woodrow Wilson (Dem.), Governor of New Jersey and former president of Princeton University, had no national recognition and little public support.
The election platform of both parties included a monetary reform bill. The Republicans were aligned with the Aldrich Plan, which had been denounced as a Wall Street plan, and the Democrats had the Federal Reserve Act. The secret was that both bills were almost identical except for the names.
In order to confuse the American people and obfuscate the real purpose of the Federal Reserve Act, the architects of the Aldrich Plan, Nelson Aldrich, although no longer a senator, and Frank Vanderlip, president of the National City Bank, set up a campaign against the bill. They denounced the proposed Federal Reserve Act as inimical to banking and to good government.
Theodore Roosevelt also decided to run again and ran as a third party candidate, the Bull Moose Party. As a Republican ex-president, Roosevelt would divide Taft voters, and Wilson won the election. Since the bankers were financing all three candidates, they would win regardless of the outcome of the election.
The result was that a Democratic Congress and a Democratic President were elected in 1912 to get the central bank legislation passed.The signing of the Federal Reserve Act by Woodrow Wilson represented the culmination of years of collusion with his friend, Col. House, and Paul Warburg.
One of the men with whom Col. House became acquainted in the Wilson Administration was Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was then Assistant Secretary of Navy. Col. House would become a close advisor to future President FDR.
Conspiracy and Treason at Jeckyl Island
“Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws…” – Mayer Anselm Rothschild
On the night of November 22, 1910, a delegation of the nation’s leading financiers leave a railway station at Hoboken, New Jersey on a secret mission and clandestine journey to Jeckyl Island, Georgia a privately held reserve owned by the Money Power.
The clandestine delegation had left in a sealed railway car, for an undisclosed destination. They were led by Senator Nelson Aldrich, head of the National Monetary Commission.
In 1908, after the tragic Panic of 1907 had resulted in a public outcry that the nation’s monetary system be stabilized. President Theodore Roosevelt had signed into law the bill creating the National Monetary Commission.
The panic was itself instigated by the by a cabal of international bankers who desired to take control of American currency, thereby taking control of the country and it’s government.
Accompanying Nelson Aldrich was his private secretary, Shelton; A. Piatt Andrew, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, and Special Assistant of the National Monetary Commission; Frank Vanderlip, president of the National City Bank of New York, Henry P. Davison, senior partner of J.P. Morgan Company, and generally regarded as Morgan’s personal emissary; and Charles D. Norton, president of the Morgan-dominated First National Bank of New York.
Also joining the group was Benjamin Strong, also known as a lieutenant of J.P. Morgan; and Paul Warburg, a recent immigrant from Germany who had joined the banking house of Kuhn, Loeb.
Jekyll Island, over a thousand miles from Hoboken New Jersey, was chosen as the place to draft the plan for control of the money and credit of the people of the United States, because of its isolation, and because it was also the private preserve of the Jekyll Island Club representing one-sixth of the total wealth of the world.
The Aldrich group journeyed there in private to write the banking and currency legislation which the National Monetary Commission had been ordered to prepare in public. At stake was the future control of the money and credit of the United States. If real monetary reform had been prepared and presented to Congress, it would have ended the power of the elitist one world money creators. The Jekyll Island conspiracy ensured the establishment of a central bank that was so abhorrent to the Framers. A central bank would give these bankers everything they had always wanted.
The “monetary reform” plan prepared at Jekyll Island was to be presented to Congress as the completed work of the National Monetary Commission’ not of a cabal of international bankers. It was imperative that the real authors of the bill remain a secret.
Public resentment against bankers since the Panic of 1907 was so great that no Congressman would dare to vote for a bill even remotely acquainted Wall Street, no matter who had contributed to his campaign expenses.
The Jekyll Island plan was the establishment of a central bank, in a country where there was a long tradition of struggle against inflicting a central bank on the American people.
Thomas Jefferson fought against Alexander Hamilton’s scheme to create the First Bank of the United States, backed by James Rothschild and in 1791 wrote an opinion on the matter which quite frankly reveals that a central banking system is antithetical to the US Constitution:
I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground–that all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states, or to the people (12th amend.). To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition.
The incorporation of a bank, and the powers assumed by this bill, have not, in my opinion, been delegated to the United States by the Constitution.
Attempts by the notorious Money Power continued with President Andrew Jackson’s successful war against Alexander Hamilton’s scheme for the Second Bank of the United States, in which Nicholas Biddle, an American financier who served as the president of the Second Bank of the United States, was acting as the agent for James Rothschild of Paris. President Jackson dissolved the Bank in 1836.
The result of that struggle was the creation of the Independent Sub-Treasury System, to keep the funds of the United States out of the hands of the financiers. In 1846 the Independent Treasury was finally and rigidly established and with it the subtreasury system. Public funds were not to be deposited in any bank but either kept in coin in the Treasury or subtreasury or retained by the public officers receiving them until paid out on proper authority. No banknotes were to be received in payments to the government.
A study of the panics of 1873, 1893, and 1907 show that these panics were the result of the international bankers’ operations out of London. The public demanded in 1908 that Congress enact legislation to prevent the recurrence of artificially induced money panics. This resulted in the formation of the National Monetary Commission set up with Nelson Aldrich at its head, since he was majority leader of the Senate. The panics had done the work the Bankers desired. They were now able to create legislation which put them in control of America, a literal coup d tat.
Establishing the Fed
The main problem, as Paul Warburg informed his colleagues, was to avoid terminology such as Central Bank. For that reason, they decided upon the designation of Federal Reserve System.
The proposed Federal Reserve Bank was to be publicly controlled by Congress and answerable to the US government, but the directors were to be chosen by the banks of the Federal Reseve association. The Federal Reserve Board of Governors would be appointed by the President of the United States, but the real work of the Board would be controlled by a Federal Advisory Council, meeting with the Governors. The Council would be chosen by the directors of the twelve Federal Reserve Banks, and would remain unknown to the public.
Paul Warburg designed the primary deception which would prevent the citizens from recognizing that his plan set up a central bank. This was the regional reserve system. Twelve branch reserve banks located in different sections of the country. Few people outside the banking world would realize that the existing concentration of the nation’s money and credit structure in New York made the proposal of a regional reserve system a delusion.
Senator Nelson Aldrich and Warburg determined that the administrators for the proposed regional reserve system should be appointive, not elected, and that Congress should have no role in their selection but subject to executive approval by the President, whom of course they control. This patent removal of the system from Congressional control meant that the Federal Reserve proposal was unconstitutional from its inception, because the Federal Reserve System was to be a bank of issue.
Article 1, Sec. 8, Par. 5 of the Constitution expressly charges Congress with “the power to coin money and regulate the value thereof.”.
The plan would deprive Congress of its sovereignty, and the systems of checks and balances of power set up by Thomas Jefferson in the Constitution would now be destroyed. Administrators of the proposed system would control the nation’s money and credit, and would themselves be approved by the executive department of the government. The judicial department (the Supreme Court, etc.) was already virtually controlled by the executive department through presidential appointment to the bench.
Testifying before the Congressional Committee on Rules, December 15, 1911, after the Aldrich plan had been introduced in Congress, Congressman Lindbergh stated,
“Our financial system is a false one and a huge burden on the people . . . I have alleged that there is a Money Trust. The Aldrich plan is a scheme plainly in the interest of the Trust . . . Why does the Money Trust press so hard for the Aldrich Plan now, before the people know what the money trust has been doing?…….The Aldrich Plan is the Wall Street Plan. It is a broad challenge to the Government by the champion of the Money Trust. It means another panic, if necessary, to intimidate the people. Aldrich, paid by the Government to represent the people, proposes a plan for the trusts instead. It was by a very clever move that the National Monetary Commission was created. In 1907 nature responded most beautifully and gave this country the most bountiful crop it had ever had. Other industries were busy too, and from a natural standpoint all the conditions were right for a most prosperous year. Instead, a panic entailed enormous losses upon us.
Wall Street knew the American people were demanding a remedy against the recurrence of such a ridiculously unnatural condition. Most Senators and Representatives fell into the Wall Street trap and passed the Aldrich Vreeland Emergency Currency Bill. But the real purpose was to get a monetary commission which would frame a proposition for amendments to our currency and banking laws which would suit the Money Trust. The interests are now busy everywhere educating the people in favor of the Aldrich Plan. It is reported that a large sum of money has been raised for this purpose. Wall Street speculation brought on the Panic of 1907. The depositors’ funds were loaned to gamblers and anybody the Money Trust wanted to favour. Then when the depositors wanted their money, the banks did not have it. That made the panic.”
Money Power Assassinations of Presidents – Part I
During the Civil War (1861-1865), President Lincoln required money to finance the War from the North. The Bankers would charge him 24% to 36% interest. Lincoln, a man of principle, was horrified and went away greatly distressed, for he would not think of plunging his beloved country into a debt that the country would find impossible to pay back.
President Lincoln asked Congress to pass a law authorizing the printing of full legal tender Treasury notes to pay for the War effort. Lincoln recognized the great benefits of this issue. At one point he wrote:
“… (we) gave the people of this Republic the greatest blessing they have ever had – their own paper money to pay their own debts…”
The Treasury notes were printed with green ink on the back, so the people called them “Greenbacks”. Lincoln printed $449,338,902 dollars worth of Greenbacks, a debt-free and interest-free money to finance the war effort. It served as legal tender for all debts, public and private. He printed it, paid it to the soldiers, to the U.S. Civil Service employees, and bought supplies for war. Shortly after The London Times printed the following:
“If that mischievous financial policy, which had its origin in the North American Republic, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without a debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed, or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”
The only thing that is a threat to the power of the financiers is sovereign governments printing interest free and debt free paper money. They know it would break the power of the international Bankers.
After The London Times published the above piece, the British Government, controlled by the London bankers and other European bankers, moved to support the Confederate South, hoping to overthrow Lincoln and the Union, and destroy this government which they said had to be destroyed.
Two things stopped them. First, Lincoln knew that the people of Britain would not support slavery, so he issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which declared that slavery in the United States was abolished. At this point, the London Bankers could not openly support the Confederacy because the British people simply would not stand for their country supporting slavery. Second, the Czar of Russia sent a Russian navy fleet to the United States which would be under the command of Abraham Lincoln.
The North won the war, and America remained as one nation. Of course, the Bankers were not going to give in that easy, for they were determined to put an end to Lincoln’s interest-free, debt-free Greenbacks. He was assassinated by an agent of the Money Power shortly after the War ended – John Wilkes Booth.
John Wilkes Booth
Contrary to popular opinion, many people believe that Booth, a rising star in American theater, was not killed at the Garret farm in Virginia. According to Boothe’s own granddaughter Izola Forrester and Theodore J Nottingham, the 3rd great-grandson, he was not killed by a Union soldier but survived and escaped. In fact there are several documentaries which have examined this theory including PBS and the History Channel.
Izola Forrester wrote in her 1937 book This One Mad Act that Booth had been aided and abetted in his escape from Washington by the Knights of the Golden Circle, a Masonic order.
According to the Booth relatives, it was common knowledge that he never died in the barn. He was not killed until much later, in 1903, by the infamous outlaw Jesse Woodson James at the Grand Avenue Hotel in Enid, Oklahoma after Booth continually reneged on his oath to never talk about his secret membership in the Masonic-oriented Knights of the Golden Circle (KGC) and to never mention the murder of Abraham Lincoln. Legend has it that Jesse was a 33rd degree Freemason and a high-ranking Knight of the Golden Circle.
The KGC claimed 200,000 members all over America during the war. All of the men in Lincoln’s cabinet were Knights, except for Lincoln. The KGC was financed by the London and Paris Rothschild brothers. Their goal was to foment as much chaos and discord as possible in order to keep the country divided and to usher in a Rothschild-owned central bank.
The official version of the Lincoln assassination was put out as dis-information, to hide the involvement of the Bankers. The Booth family version of the story is further corroberated by two Civil War veterans who swore an affidavit in 1922 stating that the body removed from the Garrett farm was not Booth. Joseph Zeigen and Wilson Kenzie said that they had served with the cavalry troop which had surrounded the barn. The man dragged from the barn wore a Confederate uniform and on his feet were yellow brogans, the service footgear of a Confederate soldier. The two veterans were sworn to secrecy.
Congress, under pressure from the Money Influence, soon revoked the Greenback Law and enacted, in its place, the National Banking Act. The national banks were to be privately owned and the national bank notes they issued were to be interest bearing. The Act also provided that the Greenbacks should be retired from circulation as soon as they came back to the Treasury in payment of taxes.
In 1972, the United States Treasury Department was asked to compute the amount of interest that would have been paid if that 400 million dollars would have been borrowed at interest instead of being issued by Abraham Lincoln. They did some computations, and a few weeks later, the United States Treasury Department said the United States Government saved 4 billion dollars in interest because Lincoln had created his own money. So you can about imagine how much the Government has paid and how much we owe solely on the basis of interest.
The Assassins of Presidents – Part II
“The bane of our civil institutions is to be found in Masonry, already powerful and daily becoming more so. I owe to my country an exposure of its dangers.” – Captain William Morgan, murdered Sept 11, 1826
Captain Morgan was a Mason and decided to go public with the knowledge that the organization had become corrupt. As Captain Morgan stated, “He had witnessed the corruption of the Institution and saw it was an engine of personal advantage and political aggrandizement; that it gave to its members unfair advantages and extra privileges over the unsuspecting community; that its insidious influence extended to every transaction in society, raising as it were the Masonic combination unto a PRIVILEGED ORDER, who, under the Royal Names of GRAND KINGS, Grand Sovereigns, and Grand High Priests, in darkness and secrecy, ruled and plundered the people. CAPTAIN MORGAN was a soldier and a brave man.
When did the United States first fall prey to the Masonic influences? Yes it is true that George Washington admitted being a Mason and the records show he was titled as a Master of his Lodge just 5 months before taking office as first President of the United States, but he also admitted that he only visited the Masonic Lodge twice during his professional career. It is also true that Dr. Ben Franklin had secretive dabblings in the subject in Europe. Thomas Jefferson had correspondences with Adam Weishaupt (the founder of the Illuminati/Masonic Order on may 1, 1776). Even though these early founders had Masonic ties, it was a fairly benign organization until it was infiltrated by Adam Weishaupt’s Illuminati. The Constitution and the framework which had been established by the founding fathers with the help and influence of St. Germain began its serious degradation when Andrew Jackson took office in 1828. In addition to being poorly educated and making a mockery of the Executive Office, Jackson deviated significantly from the previous Presidents. A good example of this is in the following quote: “the fact that Jackson, unlike previous Presidents, did not defer to Congress in policy-making but used his power of the veto and his party leadership to assume command.”
A curious but very credible Internet document called “The Mardi Gras Secrets” states that Illuminati agents poisoned and killed Presidents William Henry Harrison (1773-1841) and Zachary Taylor (1784-1850). They also poisoned James Buchanan in 1857 but he survived. All three were obstructing Illuminati- House of Rothschild plans for the US Civil War (1860-1865). William Henry Harrison was the first President ever to die in office, serving only 31 days. According to Wikipedia he died of “pneumonia.”
On July 3, 1850, Zachary Taylor threatened to hang those “taken in rebellion against the Union.” The next day the President fell ill, vomited blackish material, and died July 9. (Kentucky authorities recently dug up Taylor’s body looking for evidence of arsenic poisoning.)
President William McKinley: 1896 McKinley won the presidential race with a great deal of support from Big Business, e.g.,John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil contributed $250,000 to the “front porch” campaign that defeated Bryan and his populist platform of returning to the constitutionally mandated monetary system and reform of McKinley’s high tariffs that had allowed domestic manufacturers to raise their prices to a level that matched the artificially induced higher prices of foreign goods, thus causing a severe depression.
1897-1901 William McKinley, 25th. President of the United States (R) Confirmed Mason. (New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies, William T. Still, pg. 21) Assassinated. Died in office on September 14.
Vice President, Garret A. Hobart, 1897-1899. Unknown Mason status. Vice President Theodore Roosevelt, 1901. Confirmed Mason. (Fritz Springmeier, Illuminati Bloodlines) Note: Mason power put in Vice Presidency, before a President dies.
“Among the most important domestic issues that President William McKinley had to deal with during his presidency, bimetallism and tariff legislation loomed large. Through most of 1897, the McKinley administration pursued an international agreement to include silver, along with gold, as an acceptable backing for the major European currencies. McKinley indicated his support for bimetallism if England, France, Russia, and Italy would go along. When negotiations with these nations over bimetallism failed in late 1897, McKinley began advocating a gold-based currency. In 1900, he signed the Gold Standard Act, which formally placed U.S. money on the gold standard. All currency was fully backed by gold, with a fixed price at $20.67 an ounce.”
John D. Was not happy with this “change of heart”, not happy at all. You see Standard Oil was not Rockefellers most lucrative enterprise. This award went to his ownership of financial and banking operations under the umbrella of the Equitable Trust Company. Banking, not oil was the Rockefeller Family’s greatest concern. As evidenced by the fact that the firstborn, John D Rockefeller Jr. pursued banking almost exclusively.”In 1921, he (John D Jr.) received about 10% of the shares of the Equitable Trust Company from his father, making him the bank’s largest shareholder. Subsequently, in 1930, the Equitable merged with the Chase National Bank, now JP Morgan Chase, and became at that time the largest bank in the world. Although his stockholding was reduced to about 4% following this merger, he was still the largest shareholder in what became known as the “Rockefeller bank”.
So , denying the Rockefellers the opportunity to make money with paper money that charged interest was not good for ones health. One year after he signed the “Gold Standard Act”, he was assassinated.
“Teddy Roosevelt became President after William McKinley was shot. Roosevelt received passage into the 33rd. degree and became a secret king of the Mystick Krewe of Comus. During his presidency, the Skull and Bones became firmly entrenched and controlled the U.S. Republic.”
Eustis says her father emphasized that most Masons below the 3rd degree were good hardworking people. The Illuminati-Skull and Bones used the Masons as a disguise. Those who rose past the 33 degree level did so by participating in the “Killing of the King” ritual. The lower levels did as they were told without realizing their part in the “Killing of the King”.
For assassinating Abraham Lincoln, Pike, Benjamin, Slidell and August Belmont (Rothschild’s Northern agent) were made secret Kings of the Mystick Krewe of Comus. Andrew Johnson Vice President became President and pardoned Albert Pike. Albert Pike awarded Andrew Johnson the thirty-third degree rite of passage.
” Doctors were an essential part of the Illuminati plan to kill U.S. political leaders [who] hindered the take over of the U.S. Republic by the international banking elite,” Eustis writes.
” Illuminati doctors eventually did in both U.S. President William Henry Harrison and Zachary Taylor. They also played a death role in the shooting assassinations of U.S. Presidents Abraham Lincoln on April 14, 1865 (died April 15, 1865), James Garfield on July 2, 1881 (died September 19, 1881), and William McKinley Jr. on September 6, 1901 (died September 14, 1901).”
“Teddy Roosevelt became President after William McKinley was shot. Roosevelt received passage into the 33rd. degree and became a secret king of the Mystick Krewe of Comus. During his presidency, the Skull and Bones became firmly entrenched and controlled the U.S. Republic.”
The Assassins of Presidents – Part III
“The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings…Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.” – John F Kennedy April 27, 1961
It was not long after this speech concerning secret societies and clandestine groups that John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated. He doesn’t mention names but makes it clear in the speech that truth, freedom, and any goodness is confronted by a ruthless and monolithic conspiracy.
November 22, 2013 will mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy, and many Americans still believe that there was a conspiracy behind this assassination.
No United States president since Abraham Lincoln dared to go against the system and create his own money, as many of these so-called elected presidents were actually only instruments or puppets of the Bankers. That is until President John F. Kennedy came into office.
President Kennedy was not afraid to buck the system, for he understood how the Federal Reserve System was being used to destroy the United States. As a just man, he could not tolerate such a system, for it smacked of corruption. Certainly he must have known about the Greenbacks which Abraham Lincoln created when he was in office.
On June 4th, 1963, President Kennedy signed a presidential document, called Executive Order 11110, which further amended Executive Order 10289 of September 19th, 1951. This gave Kennedy, as President of the United States, legal clearance to create his own money to run the country, money that would belong to the people, an interest and debt-free money. He had printed United States Notes, completely ignoring the Federal Reserve Notes from the private banks of the Federal Reserve.
Records show that Kennedy issued $4,292,893,825 of cash money. It was clear that Kennedy was out to undermine the Federal Reserve System of the Banksters. Executive Order 11110 returned to the government of the United States the specific right for the Treasury Department to create and issue currency by issuing silver certificates against silver bullion. Two dollar and $5 bills were circulated but $10 and $20 bills were never circulated as they were still being printed at the time that Kennedy’s was assassinated.
In November of 1963, that the world received the shocking news of President Kennedy’s assassination. No reason was given, of course, for anyone wanting to commit such an atrocious crime. But for those who knew anything about money and banking, it did not take long to put the pieces of the puzzle together. President Kennedy must have had the intention to repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, and return back to the United States Congress the power to create its own money.
And in a complex Freemason chess game, JFK was assasinated in the same way Hiriam Abiff was killed. President Kennedy was wounded in the exact three same spots as Hiram Abif, who was murdered in the Masonic initiation, representing the persecution of the Templars on Friday, the 13th, in the year 1307, where Hiram Abif is struck in the back, and in the throat, and in the head. Dealey Plaza is just a very few short miles from the 33rd parallel. The highest degree of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, the Meritorious Degree, the Degree of the Illuminati, whose motto is “Ordo Ab Chao” (Order out of Chaos) which literally means if they break down the existing structure and cause the population to cry out for order, they will emerge as the rulers and will have the world that they seek.
After November 22, 1963, these silver certificates were immediately withdrawn as the legal currency of the United States – all the debt-free United States notes were called out of circulation.
There is much that can be learned from our past history. Here we are in 2012, and the United States is still operating under the Federal Reserve System. It has already plunged this country over sixteen trillion dollars into debt – Federal debt, (the total debt, including that of individuals and corporations, is probably over 50 trillion) a debt it will never be able to pay.
All the Bankers have to do to keep their power is to get rid of the few politicians who are honestly working for a reform in our economic system, and the people at large remain ignorant and controlled. It is obvious the American people need to be awakened to the truth.
