The Federal Reserve- A Criminal Cartel

by Ben Taylor

The possibly Apocalyptic economic crisis that America now faces has not happened simply by chance. We have been brought to this precipice by the careful and cunning calculation of evil men whose goal is to destroy America and bring her to economic collapse so that we can then be integrated into the one world government spoken of in Bible prophesy.

Audit the FED!

The end result of this usury money system has been forecast by astute men almost since the birth of this Nation. The battle against ‘central banks’ owned by a private international banking cartel was a battle being waged prior to and immediately after America declared and won her independence. This was more the trigger to the American Revolution than was “taxation without representation”, but these facts have been carefully edited out of American history books.

These money changers and manipulators had already controlled the economies and hence the governments of Europe, in part or ‘in toto’ for several hundred years. They were not inclined to permit the building of a new nation with the natural resources of America without having their greedy fingers in the pie.

They had worked at perfecting their ‘craft’ and consolidating their power in Europe since the Middle Ages when they had gained great wealth via their control of the northern “silk road” trade routes going from the Orient to Europe north of the Caspian and Black Seas. Over time they became the primary gold and silver merchants of Europe, subsequently establishing the earliest banking cartels in Europe, loaning money to both sides of most European conflicts since the Middle Ages. Through this practice of not publicly taking sides, but funding both sides, they were able to have their fingers in both sides of this proverbial pie and eventually gained enough monetary influence to even instigate wars for their own personal gain.

By the time of world-wide European explorations, this criminal enterprise and its various branches had become the banking system of Europe. They were not only masters of money and economics, but of political intrigue and infiltration, usually knowing more about what was about to happen in a nation before that nation’s people knew. They have been successful because their vision and planning transcends time and location. I believe that this is only possible if there is a controlling intellect whose lifespan also transcends time and space. The evidence is clear that this criminal syndicate is none other than the economic system that we are warned about in the Bible, where no man will be able to buy or sell without ‘the mark’ of this system and its’ master “the beast”.

After the founding of the American Republic, it took over 100 years before these banking gangsters (banksters) finally bought off enough Congressmen to get the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 passed. Although they already had much influence in America prior to that time because of the shear volume of their wealth, they had not yet consolidated their power until this Act passed in 1913. Since that time the fate of our nation has been sealed by the greed of politicians and the blindness of the American People, especially the Christian Church, who had 2000 years and more of warning, but heeded it not. What we are observing now simply may be the death of the American Republic. May God help us; it is now in His hands.

Please take time to watch this video. When it is over, you will understand more than the average person does about how and why our Nation is on the verge of economic collapse.

Money As Debt

In the central Bank, Jackson found a concrete focus for all his fears of aristocratic subversion—fears he shared with many citizens. “I was aware that the Bank question would be disapproved by all the sordid, and interested, who prised self interest more than the perpetuity of our liberty, and the blessings of a free republican government,” he confided shortly after the annual message. “This monied aristocracy” was everywhere at work, buying up voters and lawmakers and “silencing opposition, by its corrupting influence, & preparing for a renewal of its charter, which I viewed as the death blow to our liberty.”

The recipient of this disclosure was none other than James Alexander Hamilton, son of the late Treasury secretary and himself a federal district attorney and Jackson confidant. Hamilton had helped craft the passage opposing recharter in the annual message. Now, at Jackson's prompting, he prepared a detailed critique, arraying objections to the Bank under two heads. The Bank was unconstitutional, because Congress had no power to charter corporations and withdraw them from the regulatory and taxing power of the states. (This was the Jeffersonian position, which the Supreme Court under Chief Justice John Marshall had rejected in the landmark case of McCulloch v. Maryland in 1819.) The Bank was also dangerous to liberty, because its concentrated power gave it a “fearful influence” over citizens' lives and an unchecked sway over government, inviting corruption and oppression.

Jackson copied Hamilton's headings into his private memorandum book. Over the next two years, he recopied and reworked his bill of particulars, always under the same two heads: The Bank was unconstitutional, and it was dangerous to liberty. [He could not have been more right.] Meanwhile, the question of re-charter simmered. In his 1830 and 1831 annual messages, Jackson reiterated his opposition to the Bank. He proposed in its stead a wholly government institution—in name a bank, but in effect an arm of the Treasury, without power to make loans, acquire property, or issue notes.

In 1832, President Jackson vetoed the move to renew the charter of the 'Bank of the United States' (a central bank controlled by the international bankers). In 1836 the bank went out of business.

The Bank of the United States (1816-36), an early attempt at an American central bank, was abolished by President Andrew Jackson, who believed that it threatened the nation.

He wrote:

"The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government, the distress it had produced…are but premonitions of the fate that awaits the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it."

Andrew Jackson had at least two attempts made on his life. So proud and intent on
warning the future generations was he that his tombstone is inscribed with the phrase
"I killed the bank!"

It came back.

The Federal Reserve Act was passed in December 1913; ostensibly to stabilize the economy
and prevent further panics, but as Congressman Charles Lindberg Sr. warned Congress:

"This act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth…the invisible government by the money power, proven to exist by the Money Trust investigation, will be legalized."

Even as early as 1916 President Woodrow Wilson was saying:

"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, 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 a Government by the opinion
and duress of a small amount of dominant men."

No more stinging condemnation of a concept can be given than by the man who, convinced
it was for the good, championed it in the first place!

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist”. — Marcus Cicero, speaking to Caesar, Crassus, Pompey and the Roman Senate.

“The blunt reality is that the Rothschild banking dynasty in Europe was the dominant force, both financially and politically, in the formation of the Bank of the United States [The Federal Reserve System].” — G. Edward Griffin, The Creature from Jekyll Island, American Opinion Publishing, p. 331.

“Over the years since Nathan Mayer Rothschild, the Manchester textile manufacturer, had bought cotton from the Southern states, The Rothschilds had developed heavy American commitments. Nathan… had made loans to various states of the Union, had been, for a time, the official European banker for the U.S. government and was a pledged supporter of the Bank of the United States.” — Derek Wilson, Rothschild: The Wealth and Power of a Dynasty, Charles Scribner’s Sons, p. 178.

“The Rothschilds long had a powerful influence in dictating American financial laws. The law records show that they were the power in the old Bank of the United States.” — Gustavus Myers, History of the Great American Fortunes, Random House, p. 556.

Mayer Rothschild said: “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws….”

Thomas Jefferson has this to say about the central bank.

“A private central bank issuing the public currency is a greater menace to the liberties of the people than a standing army… We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.” — Ibid. p. 329.

Jefferson also wrote:

"The [privately-owned] Central Bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the principles and form of our Constitution… if the American people allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations
that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

“President Andrew Jackson had earned the undying hatred of monetary scientists, both in America and abroad. It is not surprising, therefore, that on January 30, 1835, an assassination attempt was made against him. Miraculously, both pistols of the assailant misfired, and Jackson was spared by a quirk of fate. It was the first such attempt to be made against the life of a President of the United States. The would-be assassin was Richard Lawrence who either was truly insane or who pretended to be insane to escape harsh punishment. At any rate, Lawrence was found not guilty due to insanity. Later, he boasted to friends that he had been in touch with powerful people in Europe who had promised to protect him from punishment should he be caught.” — Ibid. p. 357.

Even Abraham Lincoln shared Jefferson's view of the private bankers. In order to finance the Civil War, he approached the New York bankers to see about getting a loan for the North. The interest rates they proposed were in the order of 30%. Lincoln's response was akin to; "stuff it." He then had Congress live up to its Constitutional responsibility for issuing and valuing currency and issued his famous greenbacks. Incredibly, like so many of us, even to the heights of power, Lincoln didn't know at first that he had the OPTION, let alone the probably-intended OBLIGATION
to create money for the nation. With the civil war ending, he had come to the conclusion that his government issued currency should become the basis of the re-United States monetary system. Within a matter of weeks he was shot in the Ford theatre with his monetary system dying with him.

President John F. Kennedy

By virtue of the authority vested in me by section 301 of title 3 of the United States Code, it is ordered as follows:

Kennedy Tried To Change It

Excerpted from an article by Harry Martin

In 1963, President John Kennedy wanted an end to the Federal Reserve System, which had a strangle-hold on the United States and virtually the world. By a simple stroke of the pen, President Kennedy dismissed the Federal Reserve System and ordered the U.S. government to restore its Constitutional-mandate of controlling the money. President Kennedy was dead three weeks later. When President Lyndon Johnson took office, he immediately rescinded Kennedy's order and the Federal Reserve won another round.

Representative Charles A. Lindberg, Sr., the father of the famous aviator, was a member of the Banking and Currency Committee. He opposed the Federal Reserve Act and gave a speech on January 20, 1915. "The system is private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people's money, and in the interest of the stockholders and those allied with them." Representative Louis T. McFadden, chairman of the Housing Banking and Currency Committee, stated on June 10,1932, "Some people think the Federal Reserve Banks are United States Government institutions. They are not Government institutions. They are private credit monopolies that prey upon the people of the United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign and domestic swindlers; and rich and predatory money lenders."

Foreign Bankers Own Majority of the Federal Reserve

More that half the shareholdings in the Federal Reserve Bank arc controlled by large New York City banks, including National City Bank, National Bank of Commerce, First National Bank, Chase National Bank, and Marine National Bank. When Rockefeller's National City Bank merged with J.P. Morgan's First National Bank in 1955, the Rockefeller group owned 22 percent of the shares of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, which in turn holds the majority of shares in the Federal Reserve System – 53 percent. But who really owns what? Here are the primary stockholders of the Federal Reserve Bank:

1. Rothchild banks of London and Berlin.

2. Lazard Brothers Banks of Paris.

3. Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy.

4. Warburg Bank of Hamburg and Amsterdam.

5. Lehman Brothers Bank of New York.

6. Kuhn, Loeb bank of New York.

7. Chase Manhattan Bank of New York, which controls all of the other 11 Federal Reserve Banks.

8. Goldman, Sachs Bank of New York.

This ownership combination has been challenged by the Federal Reserve Bank, but a study of Standards and Poors will verify the ownerships. This means that the controlling interest of our national monetary system is foreign. In 1797, John Adams wrote to Thomas Jefferson, "All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects of the Constitution or Confederation; not from any want of honor or virtue, as much as downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation." In simple terms, the United States Government borrows money from the Federal Reserve Bank with interest. Here is how it works: The Government wants $1 billion. The Federal Reserve prints $1 billion – based upon no hard asset – and lends it to the Government at a high interest rate. The bank did not have the original money, it created it and made a bookkeeping entry – like you writing yourself a check without funds and cashing it. The Federal Reserve controls the flow of money, making it tight and creating unemployment or printing more than actually exists and creates inflation. It is, in essence, a paper corporation, which controls the entire economic well-being of the nation.


No Congress, no President has been strong enough to stand up to the foreign-controlled Federal Reserve Bank. Yet there is a catch – one that President Kennedy recognized before he was slain – the original deal in 1913 creating the Federal Reserve Bank had a simple back out clause. The investors loaned the United States Government $1 billion. And the back out clause allows the United States to buy out the system for that $1 billion. If the Federal Reserve Bank were demolished and the Congress of the United States took control of the currency, as required in the Constitution, the National Debt would virtually end overnight, and the need for more taxes and even the income tax, itself. Thomas Jefferson was concise in his early warning to the American nation, "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
