“There are powers at work in this country about which we have no knowledge.” Queen Elizabeth II to her butler in 2002, as discussed in his memoir.
The Queen is talking about the relatively few persons now living that actually control the finances of the world. The British Monarchy benefits from this group – it is not really a secret – but the how and why of how all this happened is so convoluted that the most earnest researcher merely throws up his or her hands in despair to even comment on it.
In Follow the Money – Part 1, Miss Constitution discussed the intrigue used to get public acceptance of our disastrous entrance into World War I. Once Congress and then President Wilson turned our monetary policies over to European and American bankers in 1913, the bankers insisted we enter the war. Exorbitant profits were made. Further unnecessary wars followed. We ceased to be a Republic and became an Oligarchy.
An eyewitness to the Nye hearings on the war, Dorothy Detzer sums up the testimony. “The long exhaustive investigation … produced a sordid report of intrigues and bribery; of collusion and excessive profits; of war scares artificially fostered and [disarmament] conferences deliberately wrecked.”
Americans were convinced through an extensive propaganda campaign that World War I was a fight between “good versus evil.” The truth is that European and American “money trusts”, with interlocking Boards of Directors in a variety of businesses, intermarriages of key banking families, and many Wall Street firms serving as agents for European interests, wanted America to enter the war for the purposes of profit. The “evil” turned out to be what the banking cartel was willing to do to assure we entered the war.
How could this have happened? Americans would not knowingly give up their hard-fought-for Republic for collusion with a European banking cartel with agent-partners in America. We the People would not have stood for it. One reason it happened is that the effort to bring America to her knees financially had been going on for a very long time. Britain led the charge. She was not happy about the outcome of the American Revolution.
Here’s the story.
The concept of “central banking” (central banks print the currency of a nation as a loan to the government with interest) in Europe was already in play when America won her independence from Britain in 1783. The war had been costly, relatively worthless paper currency issued, and a need for financial stability paramount. Though Britain lost the war, the European banking cartel saw an opportunity to influence American policy if George Washington would approve a United States central bank. Jefferson opposed it vehemently, but George Washington reluctantly approved the First Bank of the United States at Alexander Hamilton’s insistence. 80% of shares in the new bank were purchased by private – some foreign – investors.
The Charter for the bank was not renewed by Congress in 1811. A second war with Britain followed. Another central bank was established in 1816, the majority of shares purchased by private shareholders, some of them European bankers. Its Charter renewal was vetoed in 1832 by Andrew Jackson, saying “you are a den of vipers and by the Eternal God I will rout you out.” Under Andrew Jackson’s leadership, having gotten rid of the central bank, American debt was completely paid off. Lincoln fought off the European banking cartel during the Civil War by issuing Greenbacks from the Treasury instead of more borrowing from foreign sources, but he was under tremendous pressure to succumb.
Finally, Theodore Roosevelt, launched America onto an imperial path, formed a third political party that assured Presidential victory for Woodrow Wilson in 1912. It was Wilson, whose election was funded by the “money trusts”, that agreed to a third central bank, called the Federal Reserve, and also agreed to support America’s entrance into World War I although he promised the public otherwise.
Investigations followed, but the reality is we are now 32 trillion dollars in debt, in constant war for the profit of others (not “good versus evil” as we are told), and an Oligarchy (rule by the few) instead of a Republic (rule by the many).
“There are powers at work in this country about which we have no knowledge.”
Where does this leave us now?
The whole scheme has now moved to global holding companies, global banks, and global organizations. It’s the same group several generations later using new propaganda and trying to sell the American people on the idea that it is America that is “evil” and the global cartel that is “good.” All because we let the Republic slip out of our hands 110 years ago.
Miss Constitution suggests we all take a deep breath. We might want to start where Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln and others left off. We have to say “no” to the new global cartel and the ridiculous spokespersons for its schemes in Davos, Switzerland or the halls of Congress, or anywhere else. It’s a “den of vipers.” America must pull out of many of the worst international organizations until we can get a handle on the damage they have done and what damage they have in mind for our country in the future.
We must reacquaint ourselves with the civic institutions of our Republic and insist that the purpose of these institutions is taught to our children. America is founded on the notion that God exists, that some of our personal rights come from our Creator, (Declaration of Independence) and that we have a duty to God and to our country. Global atheistic ideologies, while tolerated as liberty of conscience, are repugnant to our Republic, to our People, and to the Judeo/Christian tenets that undergird our Rule of Law.
Our statecraft requires that our public servants practice restraint and lead with honor. Our economic system is run by the private sector, but within the ethical boundaries of moral law. Corporations are not allowed to sell out their country for a few pieces of silver.
Finally, we must review and reform the central bank we mistakenly created in the Federal Reserve.
Miss Constitution misses Queen Elizabeth II. She was right about secret powers about which we have no knowledge. She was also dutiful, faithful, and graceful. Good qualities in a Republic.
