A History of How We Became Pawns for the Ruling Elite

ELDER PATRIOT – Throughout the ages there have always been men whose desire to be wealthy transcended that of their peers.  A small percentage of those men cross over to the dark side in their desire to control all wealth and amass all power.


Meyer Amschel Rothschild was one of those men; “Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes the laws.”  He understood that while laws were useful in controlling the behavior of ordinary citizens, they mattered little to the person or persons who controlled of the money supply.


One man who understood this threat in its entirety was our great Founding Father Thomas Jefferson.  Jefferson warned; “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue 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 property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”


Unfortunately for the American people, while George Washington was a noble man, he did not possess Jefferson’s financial smarts.  While Jefferson was in France, Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton convinced President Washington of the need for a central bank to address the “crisis” stemming from the debt that remained after the revolutionary war.  Crises such as war and economic duress have been used in this manner throughout history to tighten the control of the Elite Bankers over our nations wealth.


Lincoln’s realization of this during our great civil war is reflected in this statement; “I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and cause me to tremble for the safety of my county…corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”


Lincoln’s concerns were well founded when, only 50 years later the Federal Reserve came into existence.  Then President Woodrow Wilson signed the bill.


Wilson later said, “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 of 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 group of dominant men.”


The laws were now enacted for the financial enslavement of the American people.  Freedom is powerful, though, and America’s entrepreneurs continued to flourish bringing innovation and creating jobs consistently renewing America’s economic vitality.  Large corporations, threatened by continued growth and multitude of these entrepreneurial endeavors felt the need to limit them.  The banker overlords agreed.


The opportunity came with the manufactured financial crisis at the conclusion of George Bush’s second term.  Under the pretext that these corporations were “too big to fail” a bailout was arranged with the American people left owing the money to private bankers.  Two hundred years of bankruptcy laws were ignored.  Neither the politician nor the bankers who created this mess were held to account.


So successful was the “too big to fail” marketing campaign paid for by the mainstream media that when the newly elected Congress and President were in place they were able to pass the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.  Memorializing “too big to fail,” this bill now protected large corporation with automatic bailouts when needed.  As well, the bill had a number of provisions restricting the ability of entrepreneurs to borrow.


Since the passage of Dodd-Frank small business has suffered.  Once the source of economic innovation that served to revitalize our economy, main-street was rendered largely impotent.  The small businesses that had supplied 75% of new employment was mostly dormant or shuttering their operations altogether.  This is evidenced in the jobless recovery.


Large corporations experiencing record level stock valuations with little to no new employee costs are enjoying the ride.  The bankers funding this corporate growth are secure in the knowledge that any failure to pay will be picked up by the American taxpayer.


Finally, the Elite Super Rich who reside as the overlords of the world’s financial system are now owed $18 Trillion dollars by the American taxpayer.


Everyone one wins except us.
