These are long movies and not sure if people have seen them or not, but worth the time to discover more about what really runs the country and politicians.

Mod EDIT to remove links, see my post below.
Movie is available here:

Hi NumberMan, thanks for the links. Would you perhaps like to give us a summary of the content and some of your own thoughts about same to kick the discussion off?

The Federal Reserve is named that to get the average person in the US the impression that our Government controls our money. In reality its a privately owned operation by World Banks who control the amount of money in circulation as well as interest rates etc...

Fort Knox is not US gold and it probably isn't there anymore. In fact no one is allowed inside to review it's contents. This is a doc. about how the banks have come to control 2/3 of the Worlds gold to have the upperhand in controlling the worlds economy.

In 1913 I think it was, a law dealing with the Fed Reserve was passed through the senate by the 3 who were still there through some loop hole in the system while the other senate members were away. It makes this and many other points

It basically has very good references as it quotes famous persons including ex presidents and founding fathers as well as economists.

I think it's almost a little over 3 hours long. So many things are covered its hard to sum it all up because I didn't take notes. You can right click the link and save as instead of watching the stream too.

Well worth the time.

How are those links viewed then?

I think DTOM is trying to tell you that those links are not legal, that you have to buy them from the authors.
Did you read the quote she has about duplicating the works?

Legally, through the author's site.

It seems you can still discuss the material. If not, this thread should probably be removed.

Yes they were posted on another forum so I wasn't aware they weren't free or linked to within that web page. I'm questioning the person who linked on another forum about this to find out what the deal is.

For all you ever need to know about the Fed, read Eustace Mullins' "Secrets of the Federal Reserve".

the copyright info

It never ceases to amaze me
that in the course of trying to "protect"
ones work , THAT drive, overrides
the OBVIOUS BENEFIT of sharing the info
FOR FREE, which would end up
benefitting the creator in sales [ HELLO !!!!! ]
and the people with good info
[ a win-win combo to me ]

It seems to me that their BEST PROTECTION
that would at least give credit to the author.
[ credit , where credit is due ]

AND there are lots of people GIVING
their stuff away , just to spread
the word in whatever way possible.

I'm not advocating TAKING anything
away from their work or depriving them
due credit and income for the work done .
I'm just saying that they are shooting
themselves in the foot , in the process ...

lawyers , ya can't live with them , and ya can't live without

What evceryone is saying is that it's illegal to view it unless you pay for it and you're not allowed to post links to it here on ATS. However, if somehow you managed to find it yourself on google then it's not our fault.

I've seen the Money Moasters, it's quite well done, and as I recall the movie states that the Fed is actually chartered by the Bank of England. Everyone should read The American Political Tradition as it talks a great deal about the fight against a strong central bank becasue it would undermine the enitre economy and give complete economic power to the ruling elite. The main problem with the Fed lies in the fact that they, and they alone, control the printing of new currency which leaves our economy laying at their feet like a broken a dog.

We were taken off a gold standard so the ruling elite could contorl the only real currency we have, our US Dollars are really just theoretical and faith based these days. Don't you find it odd that the dollar fluctuates conversly to the value of gold?? That means that when the Dollar goes down, Gold goes up. Since we Citizens no longer in control or even own any of the gold we become ever more indebted to the ruling elite when the dollar drops. It basicly doubles the gap between citizens and elite, look at it this way.

The dollar drops 20 cents, gold goes up 20 cents.
You have dollars, the elite have gold
There is now a 40 cents different between your two currencies with you on the down side.

We were taken off the gold standard and now we have become slaves to the Fed and the government and keep running around thinking our Monopoly money is worth somthing.

In addition, one of the main jobs of the Fed is to loan money to the government, who in turn taxes us to pay back the loan. When you borrow money from a bank you become indebted to the bank, we all know that. But when our government borrows money form the Fed they become indebted to a foreign chartered bank. Our government's only real collateral is it's land and it's people.

Put 2 and 2 together and what do you get? Our government is selling us out to pay off it's debt to a foreign bank.

The "Federal" Reserve Bank should be abolised

I think understanding WHY

is of the utmost importance.

cuz a snowjob will just make this go away

and I'm sure there is a ready made snowjob

ON THE SHELF as we speak,

waiting for the right moment to pacify the masses.

this is a clue as to WHY;

but the CAUSES mentioned are fabrications.
this is what we are mostly taught , fabrications
and lies by omission as facts. Some people
just memorize them and forget about them
others are confused by them and forget about them
and still others, not many, keep digging. which
are you ?

I have heard that Kennedy and another were assinated because they wanted to bypass the Fed Reserve.

It WAS - the government would print money and put it into circulation.

It is NOW - the fed prints money for the cost of the paper, gives it to the government to put into circulation, then the government has to pay that money back with interest. What a scam.

I think most of the worlds money is controlled the same way. Iran is NOT one of them - hmmmm.

KNow this though, folks have died to in an attempt to get it back like it was before 1913, so it is here to stay. There is nothing we can do about it.

This is why I own no credit cards, I buy used cars under $1000 (in fact, I paid a total of $200 for my last 3 vehicles) and I owe no one any money - NONE! Well, I do owe someone $5 - I better nip that in the bud now. And making over 50k, it leaves more for doing great things with my children.

The federal reserve is a scam and has always been a scam made by the powerful families of the time with wealth to control the uneducated classes of the time.

Now the descendants of those family groups own our government to the point that they rule the nation and chose our leaders.



But with such much educated people in this days why they are still holding the power?

Because they now use intimidation and scare to keep the nation under their thumbs.

This site have no problem for people that wants to copy and distribute their information as a matter of fact they encouraged

The Federal Reserve Scam!

BTW the link name have nothing to do with preaching or anything religious in content.

Care to elaborate on these videos? Why dont you post a little about what they say instead of saying "hey watch this and tell me what you think," why not tell us what YOU think

Yes I recently read the Rothschilds started the Federal Reserve Bank. They have started many banks all over the world. They are crooks and made their money and fortune with blood, war and greed! Seriously they are kind of creepy.

No, it most certainly isn't Federal, nor is it owned, or controlled, or even operated by the Federal Government. See the links below.

A phone call to the Fed

The Federal Reserve is a Private Financial Institution Text of court ruling and analysis

Who Owns and Controls the Federal Reserve?

"The few who understand the system, will either be so interested from it's profits or so dependant on it's favors, that there will be no opposition from that class." — Rothschild Brothers of London, 1863

"The Federal Reserve bank buys government bonds without one penny..." — Congressman
Wright Patman, Congressional Record, Sept 30, 1941

"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)

"Some people think the Federal Reserve Banks are the United States government's institutions. They are not government institutions. They are private credit monopolies which prey upon the people of the United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign swindlers" — Congressional Record 12595-12603 — Louis T. McFadden, Chairman of the Committee on Banking and Currency (12 years) June 10, 1932

"The Federal Reserve Banks are not federal instrumentalities..." — Lewis vs. United States
9th Circuit 1992

"The regional Federal Reserve banks are not government agencies. ...but are independent,
privately owned and locally controlled corporations." — Lewis vs. United States, 680 F. 2d 1239 - 9th Circuit 1982

Thomas Jefferson
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power (of money) should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people towhom it properly belongs." — Thomas Jefferson, U.S. President.

Need I say more?

Yeah I'm just about finished with Money Masters -- it's 3 1/2 hours long but WAY WORTH IT!!

Essentially originally the U.S. colonies had script -- INTEREST FREE MONEY printed by the colonial governments.

Europe got pissed because under mercantalism the private bankers controlled the European governments through gold-based fractional banking.

So then Ben Franklin said that the Revolution was because Britain no longer allowed colonial script -- it was not because of taxes.

Right there that makes the doc well worth it.

Anyway to fund the Revolution war the money became worthless and "a barrow full of cash did not buy a barrow full of bread." As one President stated.

So the new government was forced to use fractional banking through state banks set up by the "money changers." But then the bankers conspired to set up a federal bank which Madison and Jefferson were against.

So then it was set up -- the North American Bank -- but their money monopoly quickly caused inflation -- and so the bank charter did not get renewed.

So then the Europeans got pissed again because for the federal government to pay the banks the Yankees set up tariffs against European machinery imports. Import substitution!

So the Europeans stopped buying Southern slave cotton -- so the South could neither buy cheaper European machines nor sell their cotton to Europe.

So that's the REAL REASON FOR THE CIVIL WAR -- not slavery.

Myth number 2 destroyed by the Money Masters.

O.K. so then Abe Lincoln created greenbacks to fund the war -- and this was a return to the colonial script -- but, just like with the Revolution -- quickly there was deflation due to over-printing.

Even more so the Europeans got pissed again about the greenbacks and so threatened to cut off funding. Finally the Tzar of Russia said that if Europe supports the South then Russia would also declare war!!

So Abe Lincoln, due to the European bankers, was forced to rely on private banking instead of greenbacks but once the war was over Lincoln wanted to go back to greenbacks. Too late!!

So then a new central bank was set up I think but then Andrew Jackson got rid of it.

But then McKinley set it up again -- or almost did -- so then finally there was the Jekyll Island conspiracy of 7 bankers to create the Federal Reserve -- after decades of using private banks to cause depressions.

By 1886 not only were all of Lincoln's greenbacks out of circulation but all silver money was out of circulation -- has had by the latest populist attempt to stop the gold fractional reserve system.

O.K. so with the population booming there was NO MONEY in circulation -- again inflation!!

And so people caved in -- but first the bankers had to secretly back the Democrat Woodrow Wilson professor -- bought and trained by the bankers.

Wilson was then the sneak attack to get the Federal Reserve bank in and he confessed that he had ruined the country.

That was 1913 -- and after that all the huge crashes and world wars, etc. have been contrived by the bankers.

Well there's still an hour left of Money Masters -- so I've only watched 2 1/2 hours.
