Hello Ladies and Gentlemen.

This is the first of a multi-part series into all the aspects of Global Banking and World Domination. This Thread covers the History of Banking on a surface level from Hammurabi to Reagan. Specific information within this post has purposely been left out because they fit better in other parts of the series, for instance, Hitler being a Rothschild will be covered in “The Players”, current events will be covered in “Where are we Now”, and the connection of the specific Families to every Central Bank on the planet will be covered in “World Domination”.

The links provided within this thread are mostly to Wikipedia for a basic reference. There are a few within the thread leading to specific information dealing with the topic being discussed, however, where I found the information is contained in the list of references at the end of this thread.

Please enjoy this first installment.



"So you think that money is the root of all evil.
Have you ever asked what is the root of all money?" - Ayn Rand

Hammurabi (1792-1750 BC) was considered the greatest king of Babylonia , he reigned as the sixth King during the first Babylonian dynasty, and created an empire north from the Persian Gulf through the Tigris and Euphrates river valleys and west to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Although he was a great military leader and administrator of his realm, Hammurabi is mostly remembered for his structure of the law governing Babylon, called the Code of Hammurabi (the earliest known formal law structure). Banks were held to the standards of the Code of Hammurabi. They were very different than they are today, as deposits were not of money, but of livestock, grain or other crops and later, Gold and Silver.

The worlds first banks were merchants, they made loans to farmers and traders that carried goods and wares between cities and marketplaces. Banking activities were important enough in Babylonia, that written records of practice were considered necessary.

During the Babylonian occupation of Judah(586-538 BCE), a man named Jacob Egibi brought us one step closer to what we have today. He began a business of loaning out money with an interest rate. He is also credited with the invention of private banking during the Reign of King Kandalanu of Babylon (circa 648-625 B.C.) , and found it very profitable. By the time the occupation ended, many other people in captivity with the Egibi family learned this banking style and started their own private banks.
During the Persian period, loan sharking became a business where interest rates of anywhere from 30-50% were charged. The writings of the Roman historian Tacitus , tells us that during the reigns of Caesar Augustus (27 BC - 14 AD) and Tiberius (14-32 AD) records of the Roman Empire lenders, were based in temples, they would make loans with interest, but also began accepting deposits and changing money to their arsenal. At this time, ancient China and ancient India began the independent development of lending of money, separately. By the time that Constantine created Christianity as a legal religion, the church had amassed a very strong following and forced the return of not accepting usury(interest)

...if any man is found taking usury, his lands will be confiscated, and he will be banished from England...

Alfred the Great, King of Wessex ; 849-901 A.D.

When the western Roman Empire fell, banking continued to thrive in Egypt, Byzantium, and the Arab nations of the Red Sea.

King William founded the English monarchy on October 14, 1066, AD.. In 1067 AD., William created the “Corporation of the City of London”. This area of London has privileges that do not apply to the Greater London area, or anywhere else in the British Empire for that matter. The "City"(known today as the Crown Temple) even has its own sovereign police department.
Emperor Frederick II had the first “Christian” gold coins made in 1225 A.D. and was soon followed by Portugal, Florence, France, Genoa, and Venice in creating their own coins. Through widespread trade, many different forms of currency began to accumulate in many cities across Europe. During this fractional reserve banking was added to the mix.

Because the travelers and merchants were having problems carrying multiple kinds and storing all of their silver and gold, a solution was found in the Goldsmiths of London. Having the place to safely store precious metals, they began to take deposits and issued receipts of the transaction. These receipts were then used, by many, as the first form of paper money. The goldsmiths then realized they could issue more receipts than they had metal and baring a run on the metal, began to make a vast fortune.

Modern banking began in the late Medieval and Renaissance period Italy, with the most predominant families of Bardi and Peruzzi during the 14th century. They opened banks throughout Europe to strengthen their receipts and they began loaning money to Princes and Merchants alike. Edward III while funding the 100 year war defaulted on his loans and both family banks failed.
Another Italian banker, Giovanni Medici, set up the first off street bank by placing it in the hall of a palace he had built for himself. Because of this, the Medici bank then became the Papal bank(until 1942) and received most of its business from the Pope. With this, and continuing to loan to Princes and Merchants, he was able to spread across Europe with his banking innovation. In order to gain payment without charging a usury, the bankers would take a deposit and make a loan in one city, then collect in cash, instead of a bill of exchange, in another, usually at a higher exchange rate and pocket the difference.

...”If a man is found taking usury, his lands will be confiscated. It is like taking a man's life, and it must not be tolerated”...

James 1, King of England; 1566-1625 A.D.

(“Remember, remember, the 5th of November”)

William Patterson is credited with finding a way to make money from nothing. He knew of King William IIIs money issues and made him a deal. He and his friends would loan William III the money he needed under two conditions. First, they would receive a charter for the Bank of England and second, the exclusive right to print the money for it. William III agreed and, on July 27th 1694, three things were created, the worlds first, “Monopoly” Bank, a perpetual money machine and permanent National debt. By 1698 it was said that the British Government owed, to the Bank of England, 16 X 10 to the 6th power pounds of Silver.

The Colonies were short on currency, so they did what they had to do by reverting back to bills of credit. The result was a free currency market. It had problems though, for example, the fluctuation of exchange rates and merchants didn't really want them. England responded by taking control of the money supply and forbade the printing of money. Because this happened so close to the the Sugar Act, it brought tensions to a new level within the Colonies which ultimately lead to the Revolution.

Because this brings us to the infamous meeting of 1773 between Rothschild and his Partners I would like to pause here to state, I have found many pages of links on Google to this information, however all, that have a source listed, go to the same source. That source has the only different source listed and I can not find the list of 25 within it( Fed Debt War - History Of Lies, Thievery, And Deceit by Dr. Ken Matto, Former Congressional Candidate, 6th District N.J. ). With all the other information on the Rothschilds, I wouldn't put it past him, but I leave it up to you.

In 1773, a wealthy goldsmith and coin dealer named Mayer Amschel Bauer (1743-1812) summoned 12 wealthy and influential men to his place of business in Frankfurt, Germany. His purpose for the meeting was to impress upon these men that if they pooled their resources, it was possible to gain control of the wealth, natural resources, and manpower of the entire world. He then outlined a 25 point plan on how to accomplish it.

Those 25 points are:

1. Use violence and terrorism rather than academic discussions.
2. Preach “Liberalism” to usurp political power.
3. Initiate class warfare.
4. Politicians must be cunning and deceptive – any moral code leaves a politician vulnerable.
5. Dismantle “existing forces of order and regulation.” Reconstruct all existing institutions.”
6. Remain invisible until the very moment when it has gained such strength that no cunning or force can undermine it.
7. Use Mob Psychology to control the masses. “Without absolute despotism one cannot rule efficiently.”
8. Advocate the use of alcoholic liquors, drugs, moral corruption and all forms of vice, used systematically by “agenteurs” to corrupt the youth.
9. Seize properties by any means to secure submission and sovereignty.
10. Foment wars and control the peace conferences so that neither of the combatants gains territory placing them further in debt and therefore into our power.
11. Choose candidates for public office who will be “servile and obedient to our commands, so they may be readily used as pawns in our game.”
12. Use the Press for propaganda to control all outlets of public information, while remaining in the shadows, clear of blame.
13. Make the masses believe they had been the prey of criminals. Then restore order to appear as the saviors.
14. Create financial panics. Use hunger to control to subjugate the masses.
15. Infiltrate Freemasonry to take advantage of the Grand Orient Lodges to cloak the true nature of their work in philanthropy. Spread their atheistic-materialistic ideology amongst the "Goyim" (gentiles).
16. When the hour strikes for our sovereign lord of the entire World to be crowned, their influence will banish everything that might stand in his way.
17. Use systematic deception, high-sounding phrases and popular slogans. “The opposite of what has been promised can always be done afterwards... That is of no consequence.”
18. A Reign of Terror is the most economical way to bring about speedy subjection.
19. Masquerade as political, financial and economic advisers to carry out our mandates with Diplomacy and without fear of exposing “the secret power behind national and international affairs.”
20. Ultimate world government is the goal. It will be necessary to establish huge monopolies, so even the largest fortunes of the Goyim will depend on us to such an extent that they will go to the bottom together with the credit of their governments on the day after the great political smash.”
21. Use economic warfare. Rob the "Goyim" of their landed properties and industries with a combination of high taxes and unfair competition.
22. “Make the 'Goyim' destroy each other so there will only be the proletariat left in the world, with a few millionaires devoted to our cause, and sufficient police and soldiers to protect our interest.”
23. Call it The New Order. Appoint a Dictator.
24. Fool, bemuse and corrupt the younger members of society by teaching them theories and principles we know to be false.
25 Twist national and international laws into a contradiction which first masks the law and afterwards hides it altogether. Substitute arbitration for law.”

The plan was put into operation and evidential information exists that Bauer aligned himself with Adam Weishaupt who was the founder of the Illuminati whose aim was and still is world domination. Bauer later changed his name to Rothschild which means "red shield." He took it from the red sign which hung outside his place of business. The eagle was clutching 5 golden arrows in its claws. It was supposed to symbolize his five sons. Presently the red shield represents the official coat of arms of the city of Frankfurt, Germany.

"Let me issue and control a nation's money, and I care not who writes its laws"

Mayer Amschel Rothschild

With the Revolutionary war came the separation from the English banking system. It gave the new country the ability to print and control its own currency and taxes, but the finances were in jeopardy. The English bankers had someone in place to “bring the money back” and that was Alexander Hamilton, but he met with strong resistance from Thomas Jefferson, as it was against the 10th Amendment of the Constitution and he is quoted in saying:

"I sincerely believe the banking institutions having the issuing power of money are more dangerous to liberty than standing armies"

"the principle of spending money to be paid by prosperity under the name of funding is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”

"If the American people ever allow the banks to control the issuance of their currency.. the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property, until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

"the existing banks will, without a doubt, enter into arrangements for lending their agency, and the more favorable, as there will be a competition among them for it; whereas the bill delivers us up bound to the national bank, who are free to refuse all arrangement, but on their own terms, and the public not free, on such refusal, to employ any other bank".

In other words, it forces the other banks to gain favor with the central bank rather than competing in a free market.
The charter for the “Bank of North America” was given in 1781, patterned after the “Bank of England”, and set up in Philadelphia, however the people avoided it and it folded by 1790.

Again, against President Jeffersons extreme objections, Alexander Hamilton created and led a movement for a centralized bank and the charter, limited to 20 years, for the “First Bank of the United States” was given on February 25th 1791 for the purpose of paying off the war debts. It handled 20% of the Nations money. Of the $10 million original capital, $2m from the Federal Government and $8m from private entities. Hamilton persuaded Congress to pass the Assumption Act in conjunction with The Residence Act of 1790, officially known as An Act for establishing the temporary and permanent Seat of the Government of the United States, July 16, 1790, where the Federal Government assumed States debts. Congress passed the Coinage Act on April 2nd 1792 which establishes a U.S. mint. Hamilton resigned as Secretary of the Treasury in 1793. There is speculation that Hamilton was paid by the Rothschild family for this service. By 1794, there we're seventeen more reserves nationwide.

Plans for the Civil War began in England in 1809 and It was decided the “Bank of England” would fund the North and the Rothschild Bank based in Paris would fund the South. It was also decided that slavery would be used to split the nation. The Rothschilds were heavy into the slave trade market.
Banking influence began to make the people scared and when the charter ended in 1811 it failed renewal on the vote of Vice President George Clinton. The War of 1812 and the lack of regulation in the banking system created chaos among the people. President James Monroe, early enemy of central banking, was having a hard time stabilizing the nations currency, so with a little nudging from John Jacob Astor, a bill was formed and again by a narrow margin passed, giving the charter 20 more years on April 10th 1816. The Charter was once again owned by foreign banks, ie; The “Bank of England” and the Rothschild Banks. The capital this time was $35m. The people saw it as a menace to themselves and Democracy as it again held most of the power.

In 1826 while running for President, Candidate Andrew Jackson strongly opposed the central bank and used it in his campaigns he is quoted with saying:

"You are a den of vipers. I intend to wipe you out, and by the Eternal God I will rout you out...If people only understood the rank injustice of the money and banking system, there would be a revolution by morning."

and as President in 1829 saying”

"such a concentration of power in the hands of a few men irresponsible to the people was dangerous.”

By 1832 Jackson was so against foreign ownership, he withdrew the Federal money and ended Federal deposits as part of the plan to kill the charter in 1836. The attempted assassination of Jackson, on January 30, 1835 failed, when both pistols misfired. Jackson then beat the man with a cane. These attacks drew the attention of the people and the charter was not renewed in 1836.

New York, in circumventing the need for legislation, adopted the first Free Banking Act in 1838, which stripped the government of source of revenue by allowing free incorporation. This Act allowed anyone to open a bank as long as it met certain requirements. Unfortunately, they were able to write their own notes which led to the possibility of loosing the money if the bank failed.

The Civil War brought about the legislation that chartered for National banks. It allowed for a National currency, a tax on State currency, a guarantee of payment in the case the bank failed and placed all banks under federal jurisdiction. By 1841 the private corporations of banks were bankrupt and dissolved. Congressional Bills to establish a new national bank were twice vetoed by President Tyler in 1841.

“Give me control of a nation’s money
and I care not who makes the laws.”

Mayer Amschel Rothschild

In 1846 The Independent Treasury Act was approved.

A conspiracy to assassinate President-elect Lincoln while on his way to his inauguration was perceived by Allan Pinkerton, owner of the Pinkerton National Detective Agency. Added security thwarted the attempt and it never took place. Some scholars question the validity of these accounts.

"The power confided to me will be used to hold, occupy, and possess the property and places belonging to the Government and to collect the duties and imposts; but beyond what may be necessary for these objects, there will be no invasion, no using of force against or among the people anywhere."

Abraham Lincoln in his Inaugural Address Monday, March 4, 1861

In 1861, President Abraham Lincoln attempted to secure a loan from the New York banks to fund the war. The Rothschilds had such a hold on the New York Banks they offered Lincoln a 24%-36% interest rate, knowing Lincoln would not take it. So, Lincoln began to print his own money and gave it to the people as legal tender public and private. In 1862, Lincoln, after printing and distributing almost $450m worth of debt free money, said:

"The government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency. Creating and issuing money is the supreme prerogative of government and is its greatest creative opportunity. Adopting these principles will save the taxpayers immense sums of interest and money will cease to be the master and become the servant of humanity."

“We gave the people of this republic the greatest blessing they ever had, their own paper money to pay their own debts.”

The “Times of London” published a story later that year, it said:

"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 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."

In 1863, along with the new National Bank Act, Lincoln finds out the Tsar of Russia, Alexander II (1855-1881), was fighting with the Rothschilds because they were attempting to force a central bank of Russia as well. Alexander II decided to help and stated that if France or England took the Side of the South and became active in the war, it would be seen as an act of war on Russia. To prove his point he sent ships to San Francisco and New York.

The Rothschilds used two American family members by the names of John D. Rockefeller( with the help of J.P. Morgan), to start an oil company called “Standard Oil” which quickly wipes out the competition, and August Belmont(National Chairman of the Democratic Party) to support General George McClellan as the Democratic Presidential nominee, in the attempt to gain control of the U.S. Economy. As we all know, it was Lincoln that won.

In August of 1864 a second attempt at the assassination of Lincoln occurred. It is said that while Lincoln was riding a horse a shot rang out and hit Lincolns hat, knocking it off his head. This occurrence was swept under the rug but security for Lincoln was raised.

Early 1865 Lincoln stated:

"The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. The banking powers are more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. They denounce as public enemies all who question their methods or throw light upon their crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe. Corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow. 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 the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed."

On April 9, 1865 following Lincoln's “brutal, immoral and cruel scorched earth war policy”, Lee surrendered at Appomattox. On April 14th 1865 President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. Johnston's army surrendered on April 26, 1865, and two months later the Civil War had ended. The Federal government holds Lincoln in high regards because it was Lincoln who established large central federal government positions paid for by taxing the people.

Following Lincoln's assassination, Andrew Johnson became President, who may have been involved in the assassination. On December 18, 1865, a new Thirteenth Amendment was ratified ignoring the existing properly ratified 13th Amendment which eliminated citizenship of persons who swore allegiance to other Nations or secret societies. On February 24, 1868 President Johnson was impeached by the House however his trial in the Senate failed.
On July 21, 1868 the Fourteenth Amendment was questionably adopted

After training in a Rothschild Bank in London, another Rothschild named Jacob Schiff, who was only 18, was sent to the United States with 4 objectives;

1. Gain control of America's money system through the establishment of a central bank.
2. Find desirable men, who for a price, would be willing to serve as stooges for the Illuminati and promote them into high places in the federal government, the Congress, Supreme Court, and all the federal agencies.
3. Create minority group strife throughout the nations, particularly targeting the whites and blacks.
4. Create a movement to destroy religion in the United States, with Christianity as the main target.
(Once more all the Google sources lead to one site and this site sources hard books I have not found on the internet.)

The Black Friday financial crisis, on September 24th 1869, was caused by Wall Street scam artists Jay Gould and James Fisk when they attempted to corner the gold market, President Grant did nothing. On March 30th 1870, the Fifteenth Amendment was ratified. In February of 1873 Congress demonetized silver, resulting in Financial panic. Jay Cooke's bank, who helped fund the Civil War, went bankrupt on September 18, 1873. January 1875, Congress passed the Specie Resumption Act which stipulated that beginning in January 1879 the federal government would redeem (legally exchange) greenbacks with gold.

By 1877, J.P. Morgan was holding $260m in U.S. Issued bonds in order to pull the government out of an economic collapse.

Under President Rutherford B. Hayes, in 1878, Congress enacted the Bland-Allison Act, a compromise bill which specified limited amount of silver to be coined annually.

86 days into office, President James A. Garfield, who followed in Lincolns footsteps to restore national printing rights, said:

“Whoever controls the volume of money in our 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.”

Two weeks later he was shot on July 2nd 1881 by Charles J. Guiteau using a .442 Webley British Bulldog revolver. Garfield suffered for 11 weeks when he finally succumbed to infection and died on September 19th 1881

President William McKinley, elected in 1896, based his entire campaign on the Gold standard. He was against foreign owned central banking. On September 6, 1901 he was shot twice by Leon Czolgosz while attending the Pan-American Exposition at the Temple of Music in Buffalo, New York. McKinley died eight days later, on September 14, 1901. Czolgosz was dubbed an anarchist and it is simply know as “Political reasons” as to why he did it.

Due to currency uncertainties and significant financial panics, J.P. Morgan purchased $200m in Bonds to help the U.S. Economy, but the Panics continued. In 1907 The Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis was admittedly the main contributing cause of the Panic in 1907, saying:

"If Knickerbocker Trust would falter, then Congress and the public would lose faith in all trust companies and banks would stand to gain."

JPMorgan Chase & Co. attacked F. Augustus Heinze's Knickerbocker Trust by using insider trading of assets and pushing bad loans from the Knickerbocker Bank in to the Headlines purposely causing the panics. J.P. Morgan and James Stillman, of First National City Bank(now Citigroup), acted together as a “Central Bank” in order to provide “Liquidity” using $25m provided by President Theodore Roosevelt from Governmental funds. They decided which banks would benefit and which would fail. Congressman Arsène Pujo realized, in his Congressional Investigation in to the “Robber Barrons” or “Money Trusts”, new forms of monopolies were being created. He found that monopolies like the Railroads and Oil (both Rothschilds), who had their own banks, began to merge. This strengthened not only the monopolies, but also combined the banks to form a strong and unified “Super Monopoly” made up of many little monopolies working together.

It took very little time to begin the monopolization of everything ie; Banking, Transportation, fuels, etc.. In order for this to work, independent Banks and Businesses, ie the competition, were imposed with a “tax” above the normal interest and government fees associated with printing. Due to public anger for stronger Government action and a stronger central bank, actions were taken. What the people did not understand is that these actions would lead to the creation of what the people were attempting to get away from like: Corruption, Monopolies, and central planning of normal everyday activities and business.

The National Monetary Commission was created by congress in 1908. Led by Nelson W. Aldrich. Its purpose was to define the changes needed to the U.S. banking system. The result was the National Reserve Association which was run by the bankers themselves. The public was not happy.

“The way to make money is to buy when blood is running in the streets.”

John D. Rockefeller

This brings us to the infamous meeting on Jekyll Island. Much controversy as to whether or not this meeting took place has been debated since Bertie Charles Forbes, the founder of Forbes magazine, published an article. As the story goes, U.S. Senator Nelson W. Aldrich, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Department A.P. Andrews, Piatt, Warburg and several other Banking Tycoons, snuck off to Jekyll Island to form, what the Federal Reserve of Atlanta would call, a draft legislation for the creation of a U.S. central bank. It was Paul Warburg that is credited with being the creator of the Modern Federal Reserve. Although this meeting is still debated, a return to Jekyll Island, to celebrate the 100 year anniversary, was held on November 5th and 6th of 2010. The conference was called "A Return to Jekyll Island: The Origins, History, and Future of the Federal Reserve", and was held in the exact same building where the original 1910 meeting took place.

By 1912 J.P. Morgan owned U.S. Steel and General Electric and was in control of about $22b. This put the basic necessities of the public into one “board”. The Rothschilds “Owned” and directed J.P. Morgan, who in turn “Owned” and directed Rockefeller. The result was the Rothschilds running, directly and indirectly, the dominant companies in Banking, Oil, Steel, Auto Manufacturing, Train Transport, Shipping, Gold, Silver, Utilities, Electronics and Housewares, Logging, Construction, etc.

The House Banking and Currency Committee(HBCC) came to the conclusion that America's banking system was a "money trust" defined as:

"an established and well defined identity and community of interest between a few leaders of finance . . .which has resulted in a vast and growing concentration of control of money and credit in the hands of a comparatively few men."

It is interesting to add, Theodore Roosevelt was running for Presidency in the attempt to regain the White House. He had left the Republican party and began the Progressive party, which he and other political free thinkers had created. On October 13th 1912 Roosevelt was shot by John F. Schrank in an assassination attempt. His rather lengthy speech and a metal glasses case took most of the force of the bullet, but it still penetrated Roosevelts chest. He went on to give his speech. The bullet remained in him, by his choice, until he died in 1919.

Woodrow Wilson won the election of 1912. He was also against banking control, and together with his Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan] fought

"any plan which concentrates control in the hands of the banks."

The Glass-Willis proposal was handed to President-elect Wilson on December 26th 1912 and for the next year was debated and restructured by the Reserve Board Organization Committee. The committee consisted of the Secretary of the Treasury, William G. McAdoo(Wilsons Son-in-Law), the Secretary of Agriculture, David F. Houston, and the Controller of the Currency, John Skelton Williams(a Richmond banker and capitalist) with help from J.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller and E.H. Harriman( Further information). Indirect Income Tax was initiated through the 16th Amendment, to allow Congress to pay the bankers interest on our money. The 16th Amendment was pushed through without proper ratification(?) in February of 1913.

"If you...examined [The 16th Amendment] carefully, you would find that a sufficient number of states never ratified that amendment."

U.S. District Court Judge James C. Fox 2003.

According to the two volume work by Bill Benson and Red Beckman , "The Law That Never Was" the 16th amendment, which created the IRS, was never properly ratified by even one State. These gentlemen traveled the then 48 states to verify that fact. On December 23rd 1913, the Federal Reserve Act( (ch. 6, 38 Stat. 251, 12 U.S.C. ch.3) was signed by Wilson. (I insert here that according to wiki it ha been amended twice, but this looks like a few more than twice)

“When the President 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.”

Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr.

It is said that this bill(and tax amendment) was pushed through, due to so many of congress being home for the holidays. According to official records the House of Representatives voted 298 yeas to 60 nays, with 76 not voting(December 22, 1913), and the Senate agreed(December 23, 1913) to it by a vote of 43 yeas to 25 nays with 27 not voting(including absentee votes on both sides). President Wilson signed the Act within the hour after it passed the Senate.

The Federal Reserve Act was a regional Federal Reserve System( An independent central bank) under a supervisory board in D.C.. This "Provided for the establishment of Federal Reserve Banks, to furnish an elastic currency, to afford means of re-discounting commercial paper, to establish a more effective supervision of banking in the United States, and for other purposes.”

The president appoints the chairman of the Federal Reserve and the appointment is voted on by the Senate, but the decisions of the Federal Reserve board do not need approval from any part of the Government. Among the powers given to the Bankers by this bill were a virtually unlimited supply of loans when they experience liquidity problems, new powers to the National Banks by permitting overseas branches and new banking services, and giving power, over the monetary policies of all US banks, to this independent non Governmental board. One of the strangest sections of the bill is section 30. This section reads as follows:

“The right to amend, alter, or repeal this Act is hereby expressly reserved.”

This brings the question; Reserved for whom and to what purpose?

Here is a list of banks involved with the construction of this network(I will get to who owns them and how they are connected later):

Rothschild Banks of London and Berlin
Lazard Brothers Bank of Paris
Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy(has either closed, changed its name or merged I can not find it)
Warburg Bank of Hamburg, Germany and Amsterdam
Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York
Lehman Brothers Bank of New York
Goldman Sachs Bank of New York
Chase Manhattan Bank of New York

On April 2, 1914 the 12 cities of the Federal Reserve system were chosen and they are:

Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Richmond, Atlanta, Chicago, St. Louis,
Minneapolis, Kansas City, Dallas and San Francisco

Initially, the New York Branch was limited to New York State but with over $20,000,000 in capital stock it was the largest by far(nearly 4 times the size of capital of Atlanta or Minneapolis). It opened on November 16, 1914 under the leadership of Benjamin Strong Jr., former president of the Bankers Trust Company, and its first day open took in $100m, made two re-discounts, and received its first shipment of reserve notes. Realizing that this branch would be the center of the Federal Reserve a new building was commissioned. The location was decided as an entire city block within the streets of Liberty Street, Maiden Lane, William Street and Nassau Street, and the vault was to be located 86 feet below ground and built on bedrock.

Entering into W.W.1 in 1917, President Wilson stated:

"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, therefore, 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 civilized world - no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but the Government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominated men."

And on his deathbed, Wilson is reported to have said to friends that he had been "deceived" and "I have betrayed my Country".

In the January 13, 1918 issue of “New York World”, an article was written on William Boyce Thompson, Federal Reserve Bank director and founding member of the Council on Foreign Relations, who applauded Russia for their "sweeping world changes.". The primary shareholders of the Federal Reserve Bank, the Rothschild's, funded the October Revolution by literally sending a train with 50 million dollars worth of gold and around 50 trained Jewish insurgents to instigate the communist revolution.

From the Civil War the inflation rate was close to zero but climbed to 20% by 1919, and in 1921 the Federal Reserve failed to supply enough money and it plunged the United States into its sharpest downturn in history. In 1924 the New York office moved to its new location and by 1927 its vaults contained 10% of the entire worlds monetary gold.

"The Jewish people as a whole will be its own Messiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy, and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship. In this new world order the Children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property, and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that when the Messianic time is come the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands."

(Baruch Levi, Letter to Karl Marx, La Revue de Paris, p. 54, June 1, 1928)

By 1929 the Nations money supply had expanded at a rapid pace creating large jumps of economic growth and the number of banks began to decline but asset and equity prices had skyrocketed. In August the Federal Reserve cut the money supply and bought more government bonds.

On October 24th the Large Foreign owned banks and investors like John D. Rockefeller and J.P. Morgan sold their stocks on Wall Street all at the same time, called in their 24- hour “Call Loans” The resulting market crash on “Black Thursday” was the beginning of the Great Depression. Thousands of small American banks began to fail and the older foreign banks snatched them up with pennies on the dollar, and invested in precious metals namely Gold.

Representative Louis T. McFadden, the Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee, Said about the Depression:

“it was a carefully contrived occurrence (created by international bankers) to bring about a condition of despair…so that they might emerge as rulers of us all.”

He also accused European “statesmen and financiers” of creating the situation to allow them to take back massive amounts of gold which Europe had lost to the U.S. during WWI.

This brings us to what I think is the worst event in American history. The United States government had been paying its debts with “Real” money(backed by gold) and in 1933 the Federal Reserve had succeeded in taking all the gold in the United States deposit, forcing the U.S. Government to declare and file chapter 11 bankruptcy, and by signing the Emergency Banking Act(March 9, 1933, 48 Stat.1, Public law 89-719) President Franklin Roosevelt dissolved the United States Government and placed ownership in the hands of international bankers. On April 5th, 1933 FDR signed Executive Order 6102.

On June 5, 1933 Congress passed HJR(House Joint Resolution) 192(Title 31 USC §5118 ) which made all debts, public or private, no longer collectible in gold. Instead, all debts public or private were to be payable in the non-backed Federal Reserve printed currency(fiat system). This began the process of dismantling the United States Constitution in favor of the whims of the international Bankers, which has continued to this day. Another thing to note is that people began to discuss the issue of International Centrally Owned Banking less and less until it was almost hidden and forgotten about by general society. I strongly suggest you read further into FDR and his tyranny against the United States. You can begin here.

By instigating WWII, the Bankers were able to destroy 8 monarchies throughout Europe while at the same time making extreme profits from their weapons companies. U.S. bombing attacks on Germany were often specifically targeted at the bankers competitors factories while carefully not damaging factories owned by the Bankers.

John F Kennedy, opposed to the International ownership of the Federal Reserve, on June 4, 1963 Signed Executive order 11110, which states:

AMENDMENT OF EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 10289 AS AMENDED, RELATING TO THE PERFORMANCE OF CERTAIN FUNCTIONS AFFECTING THE DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY. By virtue of the authority vested in me by section 301 of title 3 of the United States Code, it is ordered as follows:
SECTION 1. Executive Order No. 10289 of September 19, 1951, as amended, is hereby further amended – (a) By adding at the end of paragraph 1 thereof the following subparagraph (j): “(j) The authority vested in the President by paragraph (b) of section 43 of the Act of May 12, 1933, as amended (31 U.S.C. 821 (b)), to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury not then held for redemption of any outstanding silver certificates, to prescribe the denominations of such silver certificates, and to coin standard silver dollars and subsidiary silver currency for their redemption,” and (b) By revoking subparagraphs (b) and (c) of paragraph 2 thereof. SECTION 2. The amendment made by this Order shall not affect any act done, or any right accruing or accrued or any suit or proceeding had or commenced in any civil or criminal cause prior to the date of this Order but all such liabilities shall continue and may be enforced as if said amendments had not been made.


With this authorization of the U.S. Treasury to issue a new form of silver certificate currency, Kennedy issued $4,292,893,825 in “Red Seal” U.S. Notes that were Free of Debt and Interest. This effectively removed the Federal Reserve from power.

Five months later, John F. Kennedy was assassinated on Friday, November 22, 1963. (Because this is ATS most of us understand the conspiracies surrounding this event, so I am going to stick with the Banking theme only.) Almost immediately the “Red Seal” notes were removed from circulation and destroyed save the ones owned by collectors. It is also interesting to note that one of the Warren Commissions 7 members was John J. McCloy. McCloy was the former head of the World Bank and President of the Chase Manhattan Bank. That in itself brings questions. Examinations show that E.O. 11110 was never rescinded and still applies. The reason being is that, to rescind it would take an Act of Congress, which would draw the attention of the people especially right after the assassination.

President Richard Nixon was anti-communistic and at first pushed the U.S. to the Vietnam war but later changed his position and withdrew all troops in 1973 effecting the banks weapons companies. He was an activist into returning power from the Government to the States and in the attempt to slow inflation he imposed wage and price controls which ultimately effected the Banks. Samuel Byck attempted to kill Nixon by crashing a commercial airliner into the White House on February 22nd 1974. He hijacked the plane on the ground after finding out the plane could not take off without first removing the wheel blocks, he shot the pilot and copilot. He was shot by an officer through the plane's door window before turning his gun on himself. You can learn more about this assassination attempt depicted in the film "The Assassination of Richard Nixon".

Ronald Reagan was also opposed to an internationally owned central bank and on March 30, 1981 an attempt at assassination was made by , for the attention of Jodi Foster. Really? Insanity again? Whats interesting to note is that of the 17 assassination attempts on 12 of our presidents, the one who has the most, George W. Bush at a count of 4, was not against the path of the Rothschilds.

I did my own research on this a few months ago and realized ONLY THEN what kind of people we are to "follow" as our leaders. They are not quite the kind of leaders I want!

With this knowledge though....what do you do with it? It has only made me even more frustrated that others either do not care (complacent) or they do not know what to do about it. This is me....I have no idea what to do about it.

Do you?

Ok....good deal. I saw the "part one" and was indeed hoping for a part 2...I am anxious to hear what else you have.....I am ready to implement a plan thats for sure.

Good job with the thread. It is a lot to take in but once you educate yourself on the matter in an instant you want to do something to tell the entire world. SO many people have no idea...just as I didn't until I joined this site in March. Sadly the conditioning can be had even when you go against it.

I will be awaiting patiently for a solution thread.

This goes a lot deeper with the banking system. This is almost a side story of the thread "all roads lead to rome". Epic find, great, I am sure you will get applauded all day long. Good job. Hope to see more.

P.s. find a catchier name for the title.

The only thing that can be done is for states to denounce the fed and start printing their own money. Anyone can do it, you just can't copy what the fed prints. All you have to do is decide what that money will be, and merchants to accept it. Once that is done, you just have to wait for it to gain momentum. Once it does in one state, the rest will follow and the fed will be no more.

Here is a little hint as to where we are going. The Current charter for the Federal Reserve ENDS DECEMBER 23RD 2012.

ROFL! Does that date not ring a bell?

Of course it does. Coincidence?

I read the whole thing in about 20 mins... really very interesting.

The ONLY problem I have is the one source that you had to use the refers to hard copy books... I hate pinning an entire theory on a single source...


I think the obvious coincidences in the assassination attempts/successes to the Presidents' actions against the Fed system simply speak loud enough.

What's interesting to me is that during all this "debt limit" talk and all the finanacial turmoil - the quotes that essentially call out the Fed from former presidents have not been in the MSM one single time.

Why doesn't Bachman or R.Paul mobilizer this stuff and get started waking the giant that is the American people?

Some of those quotes would send shivers down "Joe the Plumber's" spine and make them take notice of the strangle hold America is in.

Interestingly enough - modern Christian movements are singularly pushing in a unified movement to get their congregations out of debt. This may be some of a "Johnny Come Lately" mindset - but there is a reason Christ mentioned $$$ so many times in the New Testament....

Debt = Slavery.

Well, being a CT site, I would assume that the charter was purposely set to expire at that date knowing what would be transpiring two days prior. however, there is no hard and fast rule that states it is an ELE. It could be that the new era of man emerges, and the banking elite wants to position themselves to be a world power when it happens.

Wow, man awesome thread, tho I already know the solution to most of these problems, unfortunately while the banking system have a say things will continue on.

But i find it really odd that the charter ends dec 23 2012 its obvious something is up with that date.

You forgot about Knights Templar. They were in the medieval times, an equivalent of modern banksters.
They were executed in 13th friday not for heresy but because French king Philips IV had a big debt he need to pay them.
As always templars were above law like modern banksters which can always be "bailed out" and exist no matter how bad their company management is. They were above law, because usury was forbidden, but templars were allowed to borrow with interest, thankfully to Pope.
The freemasons are also their legacy.

Although the primary mission of the Order was military, relatively few members were combatants. The others acted in support positions to assist the knights and to manage the financial infrastructure. The Templar Order, though its members were sworn to individual poverty, was given control of wealth beyond direct donations. A nobleman who was interested in participating in the Crusades might place all his assets under Templar management while he was away. Accumulating wealth in this manner throughout Christendom and the Outremer, the Order in 1150 began generating letters of credit for pilgrims journeying to the Holy Land: pilgrims deposited their valuables with a local Templar preceptory before embarking, received a document indicating the value of their deposit, then used that document upon arrival in the Holy Land to retrieve their funds. This innovative arrangement was an early form of banking, and may have been the first formal system to support the use of cheques; it improved the safety of pilgrims by making them less attractive targets for thieves, and also contributed to the Templar coffers.[4][14] Based on this mix of donations and business dealing, the Templars established financial networks across the whole of Christendom. They acquired large tracts of land, both in Europe and the Middle East; they bought and managed farms and vineyards; they built churches and castles; they were involved in manufacturing, import and export; they had their own fleet of ships; and at one point they even owned the entire island of Cyprus. The Order of the Knights Templar arguably qualifies as the world's first multinational corporation.

Ha! Now this does not surprise me a bit. It seems the more I know...the more I find out....the more I feel as though I am in a sick movie.

This right here is why people go mad and begin rioting. UGH! I am so ready for a solution....

I do believe Ron Paul's agenda is to get rid of the FED, or am I mistaken? This is what I have been hearing and this is the reason if given the chance to even vote another President in I will indeed vote for the one that cannot be bought and who will abolish these *&^%#$ &#^%#$@!!!!!!

Our Ron Paul grassroots campaign here in Jersey has marched on the Fed in Philly more than once. It is his position to end the Fed.

As for you, OP, S&F! This was really well written and informative. I can't wait for parts 2-6!

P.S. Thank you for reaffirming that I quit working at the bank for the right reasons.
