“The bank hath benefit of interest on all moneys which it creates out of nothing.” –
William Paterson, founder of the Bank of England, 1694
“A theft of greater magnitude and still more ruinous, is the making of paper money;
it is greater because in this money there is absolutely no real value;
it is more ruinous because by its gradual depreciation during the time of its existence,
it produces the effect which would be proration of the coins.
All those iniquities are founded on the false idea the money is but a sign.”-
Count Destutt de Tracy, 1754-1836
“If ever again our nation stumbles upon unfunded paper,
it shall surely be like death to our body politic.
This country will crash.”-
George Washington, 1732-1799
Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild

“All the perplexities, confusion and distresses in America arise
not from defects in the constitution or confederation,
nor from want of honor or virtue,
as much from downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit, and circulation.”
- John Adams, 1735-1826, letter to Thomas Jefferson.
“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation,
then by deflation, the banks…
will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless
on the continent their fathers conquered….
The issuing power should be taken from the banks
and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.” . . .
“Paper is poverty. It is the ghost of money and not money itself.”-
Thomas Jefferson, 1743-1826
“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, 1751-1836
“When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of
the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes…
Money has no motherland;
financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.” –
Napoleon Bonaparte, 1769-1821,
a sympathizer for the international bankers, turned against them in the last years of his rule.
“Nothing but widespread suffering will produce any effect on Congress…
Our only safety is in pursuing a steady course of firm restriction –
and I have no doubt that such a course will ultimately lead to
restoration of the currency and the re-charter of the bank.” -
Nicholas Biddle, (1786-1844), Banker and American financier
[Speaking about 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.” . . .
“If congress has the right under the Constitution to issue paper money,
it was given them to use themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations.”-

“Coningsby, the New Generation”,
Benjamin Disraeli, first Prime Minister of England, 1844
“Of all the contrivances for cheating the laboring classes of mankind,
none has been more effective than that which deludes them with paper money.”
“We are in danger of being overwhelmed with irredeemable paper, mere paper,
representing not gold nor silver; no sir, representing nothing but broken promises, bad faith,
bankrupt corporations, cheated creditors and a ruined people.” –
Daniel Webster, circa 1845, leading American statesman
“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society,
they create for themselves in the course of time,
a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.” –
Economic Sophisms, Frederic Bastiat 1801-1850
“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to
tremble for the safety of my country.
As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned
and an era of corruption in high places will follow,
and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon
the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands,
and the Republic is destroyed.
I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before,
even in the midst of war.” –
Abraham Lincoln – In a letter written to William Elkin, 1860
“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, 1809-1865
“If this mischievous financial policy, which has its’ origins in North America,
shall be endured down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost.
It will pay off its debt and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce.
It will become prosperous without precedence in the history of the world.
The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America.
That country must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.” –
Editorial in the Times of London, 1862
“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.” –
Abe Lincoln, 1864
“My agency, in promoting the passage of the National Banking Act
was the greatest financial mistake in my life.
It has built up a monopoly which affects every interest in the country.” –
Presidential Advisor to Lincoln, Salmon P. Chase, 1864
“The division of the United States into federations
of equal force was decided long before the Civil War by the high financial powers of Europe.
These bankers were afraid that the United States, if they remained in one block and as one nation,
would attain economic and financial independence,
which would upset their financial domination over the world.
The voice of the Rothschilds prevailed…
Therefore they sent their emissaries into the field to exploit the question of slavery
and to open an abyss between the two sections of the Union.” –
Otto von Bismarck, German chancellor, 1865
“The death of Lincoln was a disaster for Christendom.
There was no man in the United States great enough to wear his boots…
I fear that foreign bankers with their craftiness and their torturous tricks
will entirely control the exuberant riches of America.
They will not hesitate to plunge the whole of Christendom into wars and chaos
in order that the earth shall become their (the bankers’) inheritance.” –
Chancellor of Germany, Otto Von Bismarck, 1865
“I went to America in the winter of 1872-1873 to secure,
if I could, the passage of a bill demonetizing silver.
It was in the interest of those I represented –
the governors of the Bank of England, to have it done.
By 1873 gold coins were the only form of coin money.” –
Earnest Seyd, Agent for the Bank of England, 1873
Baron Nathan Mayer de Rothschild
“I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England
to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets.
The man that controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire,
and I control the British money supply.”
Baron Nathan Mayer de Rothschild, 1840-1915
“It is advisable to do all in your power to sustain such prominent daily and weekly newspapers,
especially the Agricultural and Religious press,
as will oppose the Greenback issue of paper money and that you will also withhold patronage
from all applicants (for loans) who are not willing to oppose the government issue of money…
To repel the act creating bank notes, or to restore to circulation the government issue of money
will be to provide the people with money a
nd will therefore seriously affect our individual profits as bankers and lenders.
See your congressman at once and engage him to support us, that we may control legislation.” –
James Buel, American Bankers Association, 1877
“Whoever controls the volume of money in any 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 Garfield, 1881.
He was assassinated just weeks after making this statement.
“We will answer their demand for a gold standard saying to them,
‘You shall not press down upon the brow of labor this crown of thorns;
you shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold’.”
“The money power denounces, as public enemies,
all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes.”-
William Jennings Brian, 1896
“The fact is that there is a serious danger of this country becoming a Pluto-democracy; that is,
a sham republic with the real government in the hands of a small clique of enormously wealthy men,
who speak through their money, and whose influence, even today,
radiates to every corner of the United States.” –
William McAdoo, 1912 –
President Wilson’s national campaign vice-chairman, wrote in Crowded Years
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country.
A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit.
Our system of credit is concentrated.
The growth of the Nation and all our activities are in the hands of a few men.
We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled
and dominated Governments in the world –
no longer a Government of free opinion no longer a Government by conviction and vote of the majority,
but a Government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men….
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.” –
The New Freedom, President Woodrow Wilson, 1913
(after signing into passage the Glass Owen Act of 1913
that established the Federal Reserve System)
American Bankers Assoc.--still at it in 2008
“On September 1st, 1894, we will not renew our loans under any consideration.
On September 1st, we will demand our money.
We will foreclose and become mortgagees in possession.
We can take two-thirds of the farms west of the Mississippi as well, at our own price…
Then the farmers will become tenants, as in England.” –
1891 American Bankers Association Memo,
recorded as testimony in the Congressional Record, April 29th, 1913
“This act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth.
When the president signs this bill, the ‘invisible government’ by monetary power will be legalized.
The people may not know it yet, but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed…
The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking bill.” –
Rep. Charles Lindbergh Sr. (R, MN), father of the famed aviator,
just prior to the passage of the Glass Owen Act that established the Federal Reserve System.
(The bill was literally snuck through the congress on Dec. 22, 1913.
Many senators had already left for the holidays after being reassured by the leadership
that nothing would be done on the bill
until after they returned from their Christmas recess the following January.
All evidently believed that the congressional session
had been legally retired for their customary holiday break,
but this certainly could be construed as a ruse.
And so it transpired that on December 22, 1913, under the shepherding of President Wilson
and certain congressmen of both sides of the political spectrum,
and with at least 27 Senators absent on holiday recess, the Federal Reserve Act passed.
The bill provided for a privately owned central bank, disguised as the Federal Reserve System,
to not only issue this nation’s currency but to charge interest against that currency.
Today we owe our currant national debt to the bank corporations that privately own the Federal Reserve Bank,
with the exception, that is, of the debt paper the Fed regularly sells to other nations like China.
The Fed accepts dollar reserves from foreign customers and sells them US government bonds in return.
This is how the Federal Government borrows from foreign lenders.
Some even suggest this is why we are loosing control of our country.)
“To cause high prices all the Federal Reserve Board will do will be to lower the rediscount rate
producing an expansion of credit and rising stock market,
then when business men are adjusted to these conditions, it can check prosperity in mid career
by raising the rate of interest.
It can cause the pendulum of a rising and falling market to swing gently back and forth
by slight changes in the discount rate, or cause violent fluctuations
by greater rate variation and in either case,
it will possess inside information as to financial conditions and advanced knowledge
of the coming change, either up or down.
This is the strangest and most dangerous advantage ever placed in the hands of
a special privilege class by any government that ever existed.
The system is private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits
from the use of other peoples’ money.
They know in advance when to create panics to their advantage,
and they also know when to stop panic.
Inflation and deflation work equally well for them when they control finance.” –
Rep. Charles Lindbergh Sr. (R. MN), 1914
“Every effort has been made by the Federal Reserve Board to conceal its power
but the truth is the Federal Reserve Board has usurped the government of the United States.
It controls everything here and it controls all our foreign relations.
It makes and breaks governments at will.
No man and no body of men is more entrenched in power than the arrogant credit monopoly
which operates the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks.
These evil-doers have robbed this country of more than enough money to pay the national debt.
What the Government has permitted the Federal Reserve Board to steal from the people
should now be restored to the people.”-
Rep. Lewis McFadden, (D PA) Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee, 1914
(McFadden rose from office boy to become cashier
and then President of the First National Bank in Canton Ohio.
For 12 years he served as Chairman of the Committee on Banking and Currency,
making him one of the foremost financial authorities in America.
He fought continuously for fiscal integrity and a return to constitutional government.)
“They have created a super state controlled by international bankers and international industrialists
acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure.” –
Rep. Lewis McFadden, (D PA) Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee, 1914
“Those who create and issue money and credit direct the policies of government
and hold in the hollow of their hands the destiny of the people.” -
Reginald McKenna, circa 1916, former Chancellor of Exchequer, England
“In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest,
and their subsidiary organizations,
got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them
to select the most influential newspapers in the United States
and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press….
They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers.
“An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month;
an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information
regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies,
and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.”-
Oscar Callaway, U.S. Congressman, 1917
“These international bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority
of the newspapers and the columns in those papers to club into submission or drive out of office officials
who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government.” –
Theodore Roosevelt as reported in the New York Times, March 27th, 1922
“This warning of Theodore Roosevelt has as much timelessness today,
for the real menace to our republic is this invisible government which spreads its tentacles
like a giant octopus and sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation.
It seizes in its long and powerful tentacles our executive officers, our legislative bodies,
our schools, our courts, our newspapers and every agency created for the public protection…
To depart from mere generalizations, let me say that at the head of this octopus
are the Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses
generally referred to as the international bankers.
The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the
United States government for their own selfish purposes.
They practically control both parties, write political platforms, make cat’s-paws of party leaders,
use the leading men of private organizations,
and resort to every device to place in nomination for high public office only such candidates
as will be amenable to the dictates of corrupt big business.
These international bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of
newspapers and magazines in this country.” –
John Hylan, Mayor of New York City, quoted in the New York Times, 1922
“Capital must protect itself in every possible manner by combination and legislation.
Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible.
When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile
and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government,
applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.
This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism
of Capital to govern the world.
By dividing the voters through the political party system,
we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance.
Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned
and so successfully accomplished.” -
USA Banker’s Magazine, August 25, 1924
