Ah, yellow journalism. That would not be the first time such meddling acts dragged us into a war we could have prevented. Try going back in time to
1898 with the sudden and mysterious explosion then sinking of the USS Maine; the media hungry for war insisted it was the Spanish and whipped the
American public into frenzy. They were able to put pressure on President McKinley to launch a war with Spain that was absolutely unnecessary and
avoidable. I am certain there were forces with in
vested interest in that event as well.
Yet this does not surprise me at all. The ‘Progressive Era’ was the beginning of our decline in nihilism and authoritarianism. We had all the
right ingredients converging on our Republic at the same time. In the field of finance the Gilded Age had just come to an end with the Panic of 1893
(which itself could be a conspiracy since Cleveland was close with the railways) during which prices plummeted destroying farmers and indebting them,
allowing private creditors to move in and take their land out from under them. As that occurred the East Coast banking and businesses establishments
grew wildly as Americans suffered through what is historically termed the First Great Depression. They consolidated this wealth under the Presidency
of McKinley, he was a true puppet and what made him so special? Well guess what, he wanted to win so badly against William Jennings Bryan that he
began the era of big financing of political campaigns through his connections with industrialist Mark Hanna.
During his presidency we entered the Spanish-American War and helped suppress the Boxer Rebellion in China. He used the navy to collect private debts
and is regarded as America’s first imperialist. This same imperialist dogma ran through Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft. None of this
could have been possible without the dramatic influence of public opinion held by William Randolph Hearst, whom at his peak owned 30 newspapers across
the country. It would not surprise me the least if he was bought and paid for by higher ups, a mere front man. He is also a noted early Zionist. Not
to mention he was an honorary member of the Bohemian Club, which is the sponsor of the Bohemian Grove meetings.
Enter Panic of 1907, as the trusts were going under in this banking panic J.P. Morgan stepped in after refusing to help the insolvent Knickerbocker
Trust which set the whole thing in motion. Trust Company of America asked Morgan for help on October 22. That same evening he conferred with George F.
Baker, President of First National Bank, James Stillman of the National City Bank of New York (Citibank), and the US Secretary of the Treasury, George
B. Cortelyou. The Treasury Secretary agreed to deposit money into the Trust Company of America; how could he deny after Morgan already ‘rescued’
the US Treasury during the Panic of 1893 with his investments into it.
After large sums of money were poured into these banks they refused to make short-term loans which facilitated daily stock trades, thus the market
crashed on October 24. So Morgan called on 14 big bankers again to invest $25 million into the markets to rescue them in 10 minutes, they gathered
$23.6 million and thus bought up the stock markets, avoiding disaster. By the evening of October 25 the bankers formed two committees one to persuade
clergy to calm their congregations on Sunday (i.e. bought up the preachers) and the other to explain various aspects of the rescue package to the
press (i.e. bought up the press).
In a response to this Panic the bankers convened a secret meeting at Jekyll Island led by Senator Aldrich alongside A.P. Andrew (Assistant Secretary
of the Treasury Department), Paul Warburg (Kuhn, Loeb, & Co.), Frank A. Vanderslip (President of National City Bank of New York), Henry P. Davidson
(senior partner J.P. Morgan Company), Charles D. Norton (President of Morgan-dominated First National Bank of New York), and Benjamin Strong
(representing J.P. Morgan). They traveled by train using fake names to meet in secret to discuss establishing a central bank in the United States as a
response to the Panic. So much for the supposed efforts of Theodore Roosevelt to bust them up, I think he was a fraud especially
"He (Theodore Roosevelt) got down on his knees to us. We bought the son of a bitch and then he did not stay bought." – Henry Clay Frick, steel
magnate, referring to 1904 Presidential Election
The Federal Reserve Bill was passed on December 23, 1913 with the signature of President Wilson. This was one of the academic elites. He was the first
US President and the only so far to have a PhD. As we can observe today with the masses of followers who cling to the words of our academic elite
know-it-alls that claim the constitution is an old document which has outlived its purpose, Wilson was the first prominent figure to make such
“How is the schoolmaster, the nation, to know which boy needs the whipping? ... Power and strict accountability for its use are the essential
constituents of good government... It is, therefore, manifestly a radical defect in our federal system that it parcels out power and confuses
responsibility as it does. The main purpose of the Convention of 1787 seems to have been to accomplish this grievous mistake. The "literary theory" of
checks and balances is simply a consistent account of what our Constitution makers tried to do; and those checks and balances have proved mischievous
just to the extent which they have succeeded in establishing themselves.”
As you can clearly see from our time spent during the Progressive Era and beyond, ruining our Republic, it was the cabal of editors, bankers,
theorists, and university professors who worked together to dramatically change our country.
