Condensed from "Descent Into
Slavery" by Des Griffin, Chapter Five
For many years the words international
banker, Rothschild, Money and Gold have held a mystical type of
fascination for many people around the world but particularly in the
Over the years in the United States, the international bankers have
come in for a great deal of criticism by a wide variety of
individuals who have held high offices of public trust - men whose
opinions are worthy of note and whose responsibilities placed them
in positions where they knew what was going on behind the scenes in
politics and high finance.
President Andrew Jackson, the only one of our presidents whose
administration totally abolished the National Debt, condemned the
international bankers as a "den of vipers" which he was determined
to "rout out" of the fabric of American life. Jackson claimed that
if only the American people understood how these vipers operated on
the American scene "there would be a revolution before morning."
Congressman Louis T. McFadden who, for more than ten years, served
as chairman of the Banking and Currency Committee, stated that the
international bankers are a,
"dark crew of financial pirates who
would cut a man's throat to get a dollar out of his pocket... They
prey upon the people of these United States."
John F. Hylan, then mayor of New York, said in 1911 that,
menace of our republic is the invisible government which, like a
giant octopus, sprawls its slimy length over our city, state and
nation. At the head is a small group of banking houses, generally
referred to as 'international bankers.'"
Were these leading public figures correct in their assessment of the
situation, or were they the victims of some exotic form of paranoia?
Let's examine history analytically and unemotionally and uncover the
facts. The truth, as it unfolds, will prove to be eye-opening and
educational to those who are seeking to more clearly understand the
mind-boggling events that have been (and are) taking place on the
national and international scenes.
Europe, towards the end of the eighteenth century or at the time of
the American Revolution, was very different from what we know in the
same area today. It was composed of a combination of large and small
kingdoms, duchies and states which were constantly engaged in
squabbles among themselves. Most people were reduced to the level of
serfs - with no political rights. The meager 'privileges' that were
granted to them by their 'owners' could be withdrawn at a moment's
It was during this period of time that a young man appeared on the
European scene who was to have a tremendous impact on the future
course of world history; his name was Mayer Amschel Bauer. In later
years his name, which he had changed, became synonymous with wealth,
power and influence. He was the first of the Rothschilds - the first
truly international banker!
Mayer Amschel Bauer was born in Frankfurt-On-The-Main in Germany in
1743. He was the son of Moses Amschel Bauer, an itinerant money
lender and goldsmith who, tiring of his wanderings in Eastern
Europe, decided to settle down in the city where his first son was
born. He opened a shop, or counting house, on Judenstrasse (or Jew
Street). Over the door leading into the shop he placed a large Red
At a very early age Mayer Amschel Bauer showed that he possessed
immense intellectual ability, and his father spent much of his time
teaching him everything he could about the money lending business,
and the lessons he had learned from many sources. The older Bauer
originally hoped to have his son trained as a Rabbi but the father's
untimely death put an end to such plans.
A few years after his father's death Mayer Amschel Bauer went to
work as a clerk in a bank owned by the Oppenheimers in Hannover. His
superior ability was quickly recognized and his advancement within
the firm was swift. He was awarded a junior partnership.
Shortly thereafter he returned to Frankurt where he was able to
purchase the business his father had established in 1750. The big
Red Shield was still displayed over the door. Recognizing the true
significance of the Red Shield (his father had adopted it as his
emblem from the Red Flag which was the emblem of the revolutionary
minded Jews in Eastern Europe), Mayer Amschel Bauer changed his name
to Rothschild; in this way the House of Rothschild came into being.
The base for a vast accumulation of wealth was laid during the 1760s
when Amschel Rothschild renewed his acquaintance with General von Estorff for whom he ran errands while employed at the Oppenheimer
When Rothschild discovered that the general, who was now attached to
the court of Prince William of Hanau, was interested in rare coins
he decided to take full advantage of the situation. By offering
valuable coins and trinkets at discount prices he soon ingratiated
himself with the general and other influential members of the court.
One day he was ushered into the presence of Prince William himself.
His Highness bought a handle of his rarest medals and coins. This
was the first transaction between a Rothschild and a head of state.
Soon Rothschild was doing business with other princes.
Before long Rothschild tried another ploy to secure an 'in' with
various local princes - and to further his own aims! He wrote them
letters that played on their princely vanity while asking them for
A typical letter would read:
"It has been my particular high and good fortune to serve your lofty
princely Serenity at various times and to your most gracious
satisfaction. I stand ready to exert all my energies and my entire
fortune to serve your lofty princely serenity whenever in future it
shall please you to command me. An especially powerful incentive to
this end would be given me if your lofty princely serenity were to
distinguish me with an appointment as one of your Highness' Court
Factors. I am making bold to beg for this with the more confidence
in the assurance that by so doing I am not giving any trouble; while
for my part such a distinction would lift up my commercial standing
and be of help to me in many other ways that I feel certain thereby
to make my own way and fortune here in the city of Frankfurt."
His tactics paid off. On September 21, 1769, Rothschild was able to
nail a sign bearing the arms of Hess-Hanau to the front of his shop.
In gold characters it read:
"M. A. Rothschild, by appointment court
factor to his serene highness, Prince William of Hanau."
In 1770 Rothschild married Gutele Schnaper who was aged seventeen.
They had a large family consisting of five sons and five daughters.
Their sons were Amschel, Salomon, Nathan, Kalmann (Karl) and Jacob
History records that William of Hanau, "whose crest had been famous
in Germany since the Middle Ages," was a dealer in human flesh. For
a price the Prince, who was closely related to the various royal
families of Europe, would rent out troops to any nation. His best
customer was the British government which wanted troops for such
projects as trying to keep the American colonists in line.
He did exceptionally well with his 'rent-a-troop' business. When he
died he left the largest fortune ever accumulated in Europe to that
time, $200,000,000. Rothschild biographer Frederic Morton describes
William as "Europe's most blue-cold blooded loan shark" (The
Rothschilds, Fawcett Crest, 1961, p. 40).
Rothschild became an agent for this 'human cattle' dealer. He must
have worked diligently in his new position of responsibility
because, when William was forced to flee to Denmark, he left 600,000
pounds (then valued at $3,000,000) with Rothschild for safekeeping.
According to the late Commander William Guy Carr, who was an
Intelligence Officer in the Royal Canadian Navy, and who had
excellent contacts in intelligence circles around the world, the
founder of the House of Rothschild drew up plans for the creation of
the Illuminati and then entrusted
Adam Weishaupt with its
organization and development.
Sir Walter Scott, in the second volume of his Life of Napoleon,
states that the French Revolution was planned by the Illuminati and
was financed by the money changers of Europe. Interestingly enough,
the above book (which this author has both seen and read) is the
only book written by Scott that is not listed under his name in any
of the 'authoritative' reference works.
It is now a 'non book'!
For an account of what happened next we turn to the Jewish
Encyclopedia, 1905 edition, Volume 10, p. 494: "According to legend
this money was hidden away in wine casks, and, escaping the search
of Napoleon's soldiers when they entered Frankfort, was restored
intact in the same casks in 1814, when the elector returned to the
electorate. The facts are somewhat less romantic, and more
Pay particular attention to the last nine words. They are loaded
with significance. Here the leading Jewish authority states that
what Rothschild actually did with the $3,000,000 was "more
businesslike," from a Jewish point of view, than what was stated in
The simple truth of the matter is that Rothschild embezzled the
money from Prince William. But even before the money reached
Rothschild it was not 'clean' (or Kosherl). The vast sum had been
paid to William of Hess by the British government for the services
of his soldiers. The money was originally embezzled by William from
his troops who were legally entitled to it.
With the twice embezzled money as a solid foundation, Mayer Amschel
Rothschild decided to vastly expand his operations - and become the
first international banker.
A couple of years earlier Rothschild had sent his son, Nathan, to
England to take care of the family business in that country. After a
brief stay in Manchester, where he operated as a merchant, Nathan,
on instructions from his father, moved to London and set up shop as
a merchant banker. To get the operation under way Rothschild gave
his son the three million dollars he had embezzled from William of
The Jewish Encyclopedia for 1905 tells us that Nathan invested the
loot in "gold from the East India company knowing that it would be
needed for Wellington's peninsula campaign." On the stolen money
Nathan made "no less than four profits;
on the sale of
Wellington's paper [which he bought at 50 cents on the dollar and
collected at par]
on the sale of gold to Wellington
on forwarding it to Portugal
This was the
beginning of the great fortunes of the house" (p. 494).
Yes, the Jewish Encyclopedia claims that the great fortune
accumulated by the Rothschilds over the years was based on the
"businesslike" method of fraud.
With their huge accumulation of ill-gotten gain the family
established branches of the House of Rothschild in Berlin, Vienna,
Paris and Naples. Rothschild placed a son in charge of each branch.
Amschel was placed in charge of the Berlin branch; Salomon was over
the Vienna branch; Jacob (James) went to Paris and Kalmann (Karl)
opened up the Rothschild bank in Naples.
The headquarters of the
House of Rothschild was, and is, in London.
An anonymous contemporary described Nathan Rothschild as he leaned
against the 'Rothschild Piller' at the London Stock Exchange, hung
his heavy hands into his pockets, and began to release silent,
motionless, implacable cunning:
"Eyes are usually called the windows of the soul. But in
Rothschild's case you would conclude that the windows are false
ones, or that there was no soul to look out of them. There comes not
one pencil of light from the interior, neither is there one gleam of
that which comes from without reflected in any direction. The whole
puts you in mind of an empty skin, and you wonder why it stands
upright without at least something in it.
By and by another figure
comes up to it. It then steps two paces aside, and the most
inquisitive glance that you ever saw, and a glance more inquisitive
than you would ever have thought of, is drawn out of the fixed and
leaden eye, as if one were drawing a sword from a scabbard. The
visiting figure, which has the appearance of coming by accident and
not by design, stops just a second or two, in the course of which
looks are exchanged which, though you cannot translate, you feel
must be of most important meaning. After these the eyes are sheathed
up again, and the figure resumes its stony posture.
During the morning numbers of visitors come, all of whom meet with a
similar reception and vanish in a similar manner. Last of all the
figure itself vanishes, leaving you utterly at a loss."
Morton, The Rothschilds, p. 65)
When he died on September 19, 1812, the founder of the House of
Rothschild left a will that was just days old. In it, he laid down
specific laws by which the House that bore his name would operate in
The laws were as follows:
All key positions in the House of
Rothschild were to be held by members of the family, and not by
hired hands. Only male members of the family were allowed to
participate in the business.
The eldest son of the eldest son was to be the head of the
family unless the majority of the rest of the family agreed
otherwise. It was for this exceptional reason that Nathan, who
was particularly brilliant, was appointed head of the House of
Rothschild in 1812.
The family was to intermarry with
their own first and second cousins, thus preserving the vast
fortune. This rule was strictly adhered to early on but later,
when other rich Jewish banking houses came on the scene, it was
relaxed to allow some of the Rothschilds to marry selected
members of the new elite.
Amschel forbade his heirs "most
explicitly, in any circumstances whatever, to have any public
inventory made by the courts, or otherwise, of my estate ....
Also I forbid any legal action and any publication of the value
of the inheritance .... Anyone who disregards these provisions
and takes any kind of action which conflicts with them will
immediately be regarded as having disputed the will, and shall
suffer the consequences of so doing."
Rothschild ordered a perpetual
family partnership and provided that the female members of the
family, their husbands and children should receive their
interest in the estate subject to the management of the male
members. They were to have no part in the management of the
business. Anyone who disputed this arrangement would lose their
interest in the Estate. (The last stipulation was specifically
designed to seal the mouths of anyone who might feel like
breaking with the family. Rothschild obviously felt that there
were a lot of things under the family 'rug' that should never
see the light of day).
The mighty strength of the House of
Rothschild was based on a variety of important factors:
Complete secrecy resulting from
total family control of all business dealings
An uncanny, one could almost say a
supernatural ability to see what lay ahead and to take full
advantage of it. The whole family was driven by an insatiable
lust for the accumulation of wealth and power
Total ruthlessness in all business
Biographer Frederic Morton, in The
Rothschilds, tells us that Mayer Amschel Rothschild and his five
sons were "wizards" of finance, and "fiendish calculators" who were
motivated by a "demonic drive" to succeed in their secret
From the same authoritative source we learn that,
evenings, when prayer was done at the synagogue, Mayer would
inveigle the rabbi into his house. They would bend towards one
another on the green upholstery, sipping slowly at a glass of wine
and argue about first and last things deep into the night. Even on
work days... Mayer... was apt to tear down the big book of the Talmud
and recite from it... while the entire family must sit stock still
It could be said of the Rothschilds that the "family that preys
together stays together." And prey they did! Morton states that it
is difficult for the average person to "comprehend Rothschild nor
even the reason why he having so much, wanted to conquer more." All
five brothers were imbued with this same spirit of cunning and
The Rothschilds formed no true friendships or alliances. Their
associates were but mere acquaintances who were used to further the
interests of the House of Rothschild, and then thrown on the garbage
heap of history when they had served their purpose or outlived their
The truth of this statement is demonstrated by another passage from
Frederic Morton's book. He relates how, in 1806, Napoleon declared
that it was his "object to remove the house of Hess-Cassel from
rulership and to strike it out of the list of powers."
"Thus Europe's mightiest man decreed
erasure of the rock on which the new Rothschild firm had been
built. Yet, curiously, the bustle didn't diminish at the house
of the [Red] Shield.... Rothschilds still sat, avid and
impenetrable, portfolios wedged between body and arm.
"They saw neither peace nor war, neither slogans or manifestos,
nor orders of the day, neither death nor glory. They saw none of
the things that blinded the world. They saw only steppingstones.
Prince William had been one. Napoleon would be the next"
'Curious'? Not exactly!
The House of
Rothschild was helping to finance the French dictator and, as a
result, had free access to French markets at all times. Some years
later, when both France and England were blockading each other's
coast lines, the only merchants who were allowed to freely run the
blockades were - yes, you guessed it, the Rothschilds.
financing both sides!
"The efficiency which powered
Mayer's sons brought on enormous economic spring cleaning: a
sweeping away of fiscal dead wood; a renovation of old credit
structures and an invention of new ones; a formation - implicit
in the sheer existence of five different Rothschild banks in
five different countries - of fresh money channels via
clearing-houses; a method of replacing the old unwieldy shipping
of gold bullion by a worldwide system of debits and credits.
"One of the greatest contributions was Nathan's new technique
for floating international loans. He didn't much care to receive
dividends in all sorts of strange and cumbersome currencies.
"Now Nathan attracted him - the most powerful investment source
of the nineteenth century - by making foreign bonds payable in
THE BATTLE OF
As the wealth and power of the Rothschilds grew in size and
influence so did their intelligence gathering network. They had
their 'agents' strategically located in all the capitals and trading
centers of Europe, gathering and developing various types of
intelligence. Like most family exploits, it was based on a
combination of very hard work and sheer cunning.
Their unique spy system started out when 'the boys' began sending
messages to each other through a network of couriers. Soon it
developed into something much more elaborate, effective and far
reaching. It was a spy network par excellence. Its stunning speed
and effectiveness gave the Rothschilds a clear edge in all their
dealings on an international level.
"Rothschild coaches careened down
the highways; Rothschild boats set sail across the Channel;
Rothschild agents were swift shadows along the streets. They
carried cash, securities, letters and news. Above all, news -
the latest exclusive news to be vigorously processed at stock
market and commodity bourse.
"And there was no news more precious than the outcome at
(The Rothschilds p. 94).
Upon the battle of Waterloo depended the
future of the European continent. If the Grande Armée of Napoleon
emerged victorious France would be undisputed master of all she
surveyed on the European front. If Napoleon was crushed into
submission England would hold the balance of power in Europe and
would be in a position to greatly expand its sphere of influence.
Historian John Reeves, a Rothschild partisan, reveals in his book
The Rothschilds, Financial Rulers of the Nations, 1887, page 167,
"one cause of his [Nathan's] success was the secrecy with which
he shrouded, and the tortuous policy with which he misled those who
watched him the keenest."
There were vast fortunes to be made - and lost - on the outcome of
the Battle of Waterloo. The Stock Exchange in London was at fever
pitch as traders awaited news of the outcome of this battle of the
giants. If Britain lost, English consuls would plummet to
unprecedented depths. If Britain was victorious, the value of the
consul would leap to dizzying new heights.
As the two huge armies closed in for their battle to the death,
Nathan Rothschild had his agents working feverishly on both sides of
the line to gather the most accurate possible information as the
battle proceeded. Additional Rothschild agents were on hand to carry
the intelligence bulletins to a Rothschild command post
strategically located nearby.
Late on the afternoon of June 15, 1815, a Rothschild representative
jumped on board a specially chartered boat and headed out into the
channel in a hurried dash for the English coast. In his possession
was a top secret report from Rothschild's secret service agents on
the progress of the crucial battle. This intelligence data would
prove indispensable to Nathan in making some vital decisions.
The special agent was met at Folkstone the following morning at dawn
by Nathan Rothschild himself. After quickly scanning the highlights
of the report Rothschild was on his way again, speeding towards
London and the Stock Exchange.
COUP OF COUPS
Arriving at the Exchange amid frantic speculation on the outcome of
the battle, Nathan took up his usual position beside the famous
'Rothschild Pillar.' Without a sign of emotion, without the
slightest change of facial expression the stony-faced, flint eyed
chief of the House of Rothschild gave a predetermined signal to his
agents who were stationed nearby.
Rothschild agents immediately began to dump consuls on the market.
As hundred of thousands of dollars worth of consuls poured onto the
market their value started to slide. Then they began to plummet.
Nathan continued to lean against 'his' pillar, emotionless,
expressionless. He continued to sell, and sell and sell. Consuls
kept on falling. Word began to sweep through the Stock Exchange:
"Wellington has lost at
The selling turned into a panic as people rushed to unload their
'worthless' consuls or paper money for gold and silver in the hope
of retaining at least part of their wealth. Consuls continued their
nosedive towards oblivion. After several hours of feverish trading
the consul lay in ruins. It was selling for about five cents on the
Nathan Rothschild, emotionless as ever, still leaned against his
pillar. He continued to give subtle signals. But these signals were
different. They were so subtly different that only the highly
trained Rothschild agents could detect the change. On the cue from
their boss, dozens of Rothschild agents made their way to the order
desks around the Exchange and bought every consul in sight for just
A short time later the 'official' news arrived in the British
capital. England was now the master of the European scene.
Within seconds the consul skyrocketed to above its original value.
As the significance of the British victory began to sink into the
public consciousness, the value of consuls rose even higher.
Napoleon had 'met his Waterloo.' Nathan had bought control of the
British economy. Overnight, his already vast fortune was multiplied
twenty times over.
THE JEWISH ENCYCLOPEDIA
1905 (P. 494)
Owing to Napoleon's seizure of Holland in 1803, the leaders of
the anti-Napoleonic league chose Frankfort as a financial center
where-from to obtain the sinews of war. After the battle of Jena
in 1806 the Landgrave of Hesse-Cassel fled to Denmark, where he
had already deposited much of his wealth through the agency of
Mayer Amschel Rothschild, leaving in the hands of the latter
specie and works of art of the value of 600,000 pounds.
According to legend, these were
hidden away in wine-casks, and, escaping the search of
Napoleon's soldiers when they entered Frankfort, were restored
intact in the same casks in 1814, when the elector returned to
his electorate (see Marbot, "Memoirs," 1891, i. 310-311). The
facts are somewhat less romantic, and more business-like.
Rothschild, so far from being in danger, was on such good terms
with Napoleon's nominee, Prince Dalberg, that he had been made
in 1810 a member of the Electoral College of Darmstadt.
The elector's money had been sent to
Nathan in London, who in 1808 utilized it to purchase 800,000
pounds worth of gold from the East India Company, knowing that
it would be needed for Wellington's Peninsular campaign.
He made no less than four profits on

This was the beginning of the great
fortunes of the house.
CLEAN UP IN
Following their crushing defeat at Waterloo, the French struggled to
get back on their feet financially. In 1817 they negotiated a
substantial loan from the prestigious French banking house of Ouvrard and from the well-known bankers
Baring Brothers of London.
The Rothschilds had been left on the outside looking in.
The following year the French government was in need of another
loan. As the bonds issued in 1817 with the help of Ouvrard and
Baring Brothers were increasing in value on the Paris market, and in
other European financial centers, it appeared certain that the
French government would retain the services of these two
distinguished banking houses.
The Rothschild brothers tried most of the gimmicks in their vast
repertoire to influence the French government to give them the
business. Their efforts were in vain.
The French aristocrats, who prided themselves on their elegance and
superior breeding, viewed the Rothschilds as mere peasants, upstarts
who needed to be kept in their place. The fact that the Rothschilds
had vast financial resources, lived in the most luxurious homes and
were attired in the most elegant and expensive clothes obtainable
cut no ice with the highly class conscious French nobility. The
Rothschilds were viewed as uncouth - lacking in social graces. If we
are to believe most historical accounts, their appraisal of the
first generation Rothschilds was probably valid.
One major piece of armament in the Rothschild arsenal the French had
overlooked or ignored - their unprecedented cunning in the use and
manipulation of money.
On November 5, 1818, something very unexpected occurred. After a
year of steady appreciation the value of the French government bonds
began to fall. With each passing day the decline in their value
became more pronounced. Within a short space of time other
government securities began to suffer too.
The atmosphere in the court of Louis XVIII was tense. Grim faced
aristocrats pondered the fate of the country. They hoped for the
best but feared the worst! The only people around the French court
who weren't deeply concerned were James and Karl Rothschild. They
smiled - but said nothing!
Slowly a sneaking suspicion began to take shape in the minds of some
onlookers. Could those Rothschild brothers be the cause of the
nation's economic woes? Could they have secretly manipulated the
bond market and engineered the panic?
They had! During October 1818, Rothschild agents, using their
masters' limitless reserves, had bought huge quantities of the
French government bonds issued through their rivals Ouvrard and
Baring Brothers. This caused the bonds to increase in value. Then,
on November 5th, they began to dump the bonds in huge quantities on
the open market in the main commercial centers of Europe, throwing
the market into a panic.
Suddenly the scene in the Aix palace changed. The Rothschilds, who
were patiently biding their time and waiting quietly in an ante
room, were ushered into the presence of the king. They were now the
center of attention. Their clothes were now the height of fashion.
"Their money [was] the darling of the best borrowers." The
Rothschilds had gained control of France...and control is the name
of the game!
Benjamin Disraeli, who was the prime minister of Britain, wrote a
novel titled Conings by. The Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol. 10, pp. 501,
5O2 describes the book as "an ideal portrait" of the Rothschild
Disraeli characterized Nathan (in
conjunction with his four brothers) as,
"the lord and master of the money
markets of the world, and of course virtually lord and master of
everything else. He literally held the revenues of southern
Italy in pawn, and monarchs and ministers of all countries
courted his advice and were guided by his suggestions."
"INAUDIBILITY AND INVISIBILITY"
The financial coups performed by the Rothschilds in England in 1815,
and in France three years later, are just two of the many they have
staged worldwide over the years.
There has, however, been a major change in the tactics used to
fleece the public of their hard earned money. From being brazenly
open in their use and exploitation of people and nations, the
Rothschilds have shrunk from the limelight and now operate through
and behind a wide variety of fronts.
Their 'modern' approach is explained by biographer Frederic Morton:
"Rothschilds love to glisten. But to the sorrow of the socially
ambitious, Rothschilds glisten only in camera, for and among their
"Their penchant for reticence seems
to have grown in recent generations. The founder of the house
enjoined it a long time ago; but some of his sons, while
storming Europe's innermost bastions of power, wrapped their
hands around every weapon, including the rawest publicity. Today
the family grooms the inaudibility and invisibility of its
presence. As a result, some believe that little is left apart
from a great legend. And the Rothschilds are quite content to
let legend be their public relations.
"Though they control scores of industrial, commercial, mining
and tourist corporations, not one bears the name Rothschild.
Being private partnerships, the family houses never need to, and
never do, publish a single public balance sheet, or any other
report of their financial condition"
(The Rothschilds. pp. 18, 19).
Throughout their long history the
Rothschilds have gone to great lengths to create the impression that
they operate within the framework of 'democracy.' This posture is
calculated to deceive, to lead people away from the fact that their
real aim is the elimination of all competition and the creation of a
Hiding behind a multitude of 'fronts'
they have done a masterful job of deception.
It would be extraordinarily naïve to even consider the possibility
that a family as ambitious, as cunning and as monopolistically
minded as the Rothschilds could resist the temptation of becoming
heavily involved on the American front.
Following their conquest of Europe early in the 1800s, the
Rothschilds cast their covetous eyes on the most precious gem of
them all - the United States.
America was unique in modern history. It was only the second nation
in history that had ever been formed with the Bible as its law book.
[The United States was not formed with
the Bible as its law book. It was founded by Masonic deists. Only
low rank Masons respect the Bible and consider it their law book;
the Founders were high rank Masons, and many professed their lack of
respect for the Bible. The writer probably means that the Colonies
were formed with the Bible as their law book, and this is basically
Its uniquely magnificent Constitution
was specifically designed to limit the power of government and to
keep its citizens free and prosperous. Its citizens were basically
industrious immigrants who 'yearned to breath free' and who asked
nothing more than to be given the opportunity to live and work in
such a wonderfully stimulating environment.
The results - the 'fruit' - of such a unique experiment were so
indescribably brilliant that America became a legend around the
globe. Many millions across the far flung continents of the world
viewed America the Beautiful as the promised land.
The Big Bankers in Europe - the Rothschilds and their cohorts -
viewed the wonderful results borne by this unique experiment from an
entirely different perspective; they looked upon it as a major
threat to their future plans. The establishment Times of London
"If that mischievous financial
policy which had its origin in the North American Republic [i.e.
honest Constitutionally authorized no debt money] should become
indurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish
its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be
without a debt [to the international bankers]. It will become
prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized
governments of the world. The brains and wealth of all countries
will go to North America. That government must be destroyed or
it will destroy every monarchy on the globe."
The Rothschilds and their friends sent
in their financial termites to destroy America because it was
becoming "prosperous beyond precedent."
The first documentable evidence of Rothschild involvement in the
financial affairs of the United States came in the late 1820s and
early 1830s when the family, through their agent Nicholas Biddie,
fought to defeat Andrew Jackson's move to curtail the international
bankers. The Rothschilds lost the first round when in 1832,
President Jackson vetoed the move to renew the charter of the 'Bank
of the United States' (a central bank controlled by the
In 1836 the bank went out of business.
In the years following Independence, a close business relationship
had developed between the cotton growing aristocracy in the South
and the cotton manufacturers in England. The European bankers
decided that this business connection was America's Achilles Heel,
the door through which the young American Republic could be
successfully attacked and overcome.
The Illustrated University History, 1878, p. 504, tells us that the
southern states swarmed with British agents. These conspired with
local politicians to work against the best interests of the United
States. Their carefully sown and nurtured propaganda developed into
open rebellion and resulted in the secession of South Carolina on
December 29, 1860. Within weeks another six states joined the
conspiracy against the Union, and broke away to form the Confederate
States of America, with Jefferson Davis as President.
The plotters raided armies, seized forts, arsenals, mints and other
Union property. Even members of President Buchanan's Cabinet
conspired to destroy the Union by damaging the public credit and
working to bankrupt the nation. Buchanan claimed to deplore
secession but took no steps to check it, even when a U.S. ship was
fired upon by South Carolina shore batteries.
Shortly thereafter Abraham Lincoln became President, being
inaugurated on March 4, 1861. Lincoln immediately ordered a blockade
on Southern ports, to cut off supplies that were pouring in from
Europe. The 'official' date for the start of the Civil War is given
as April 12, 1861, when Fort Sumter in South Carolina was bombarded
by the Confederates, but it obviously began at a much earlier date.
In December, 1861, large numbers of European Troops (British, French
and Spanish) poured into Mexico in defiance of the Monroe Doctrine.
This, together with widespread European aid to the Confederacy
strongly indicated that the Crown was preparing to enter the war.
The outlook for the North, and the future of the Union, was bleak
In this hour of extreme crisis, Lincoln appealed to the Crown's
perennial enemy, Russia, for assistance. When the envelope
containing Lincoln's urgent appeal was given to Czar Nicholas II, he
weighed it unopened in his hand and stated:
"Before we open this paper or know
its contents, we grant any request it may contain."
Unannounced, a Russian fleet under
Admiral Liviski, steamed into New York harbor on September 24, 1863,
and anchored there. The Russian Pacific fleet, under Admiral Popov,
arrived in San Francisco on October 12. Of this Russian act, Gideon
"They arrived at the high tide of
the Confederacy and the low tide of the North, causing England
and France to hesitate long enough to turn the tide for the
(Empire of "The City," p. 90).
History reveals that the Rothschilds
were heavily involved in financing both sides in the Civil War.
Lincoln put a damper on their activities when, in 1862 and 1863, he
refused to pay the exorbitant rates of interest demanded by the
Rothschilds and issued constitutionally-authorized, interest free
United States notes. For this and other acts of patriotism Lincoln
was shot down in cold-blood by John Wilkes Booth on April 14, 1865,
just five days after Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Court
Booth's grand-daughter, Izola Forrester, states in This One Mad Act
that Lincoln's assassin had been in close contact with mysterious
Europeans prior to the slaying, and had made at least one trip to
Europe. Following the killing, Booth was whisked away to safety by
members of the Knights of the Golden Circle.
According to the author, Booth lived for
many years following his disappearance.
BANKERS PURSUE THEIR GOAL
Undaunted by their initial failures to destroy the United States,
the international bankers pursued their objective with relentless
zeal. Between the end of the Civil War and 1914, their main agents
in the United States were Kuhn, Loeb and Co. and the J. P. Morgan
A brief history of Kuhn, Loeb and Co. appeared in Newsweek magazine
on February 1, 1936:
"Abraham Kuhn and Solomon Loeb were general
merchandise merchants in Lafayette, Indiana, in 1850. As usual in
newly settled regions, most transactions were on credit. They soon
found out that they were bankers... In 1867, they established Kuhn,
Loeb and Co., bankers, in New York City, and took in a young German
immigrant, Jacob Schiff, as partner. Young Schiff had important
financial connections in Europe. After ten years, Jacob Schiff was
head of Kuhn, Loeb and Co., Kuhn having retired. Under Schiff's
guidance, the house brought European capital into contact with
Schiff's "important financial connections in Europe" were the
Rothschilds and their German representatives, the M. M. Warburg
Company of Hamburg and Amsterdam. Within twenty years the
Rothschilds, through their Warburg-Schiff connection, had provided
the capital that enabled John D. Rockefeller to greatly expand his
Standard Oil empire. They also financed the activities of Edward
Harriman (Railroads) and Andrew Carnegie (Steel).
At the turn of the 20th century the Rothschilds, not satisfied with
the progress being made by their American operations, sent one of
their top experts, Paul Moritz Warburg, over to New York to take
direct charge of their assault upon the only true champion of
individual liberty and prosperity - the United States.
At a hearing of the House Committee on Banking and Currency in 1913,
Warburg revealed that he was,
"a member of the banking firm of
Kuhn, Loeb and Co. I came to this country in 1902, having been
born and educated in the banking business in Hamburg, Germany,
and studied banking in London and Paris, and have gone all
around the world...."
In the late 1800s, people didn't study
banking in London and "all around the world" unless they had a
special mission to perform!
Early in 1907, Jacob Schiff, the Rothschild-owned boss of Kuhn, Loeb
and Co., in a speech to the New York Chamber of Commerce, warned
"unless we have a Central Bank with adequate control of credit
resources, this country is going to undergo the most severe and far
reaching money panic in its history."
Shortly thereafter, the United States plunged into a monetary crisis
that had all the earmarks of a skillfully planned Rothschild 'job.'
The ensuing panic financially mined tens of thousands of innocent
people across the country - and made billions for the banking elite.
The purpose for the 'crisis' was
(1) To make a financial
'killing' for the Insiders
(2) To impress on the American
people the 'great need' for a central bank
Paul Warburg told the Banking and
Currency Committee: "In the Panic of 1907, the first suggestion I
made was, 'let us have a national clearing house' [Central Bank].
The Aldrich Plan [for a Central Bank] contains many things that are
simply fundamental rules of banking. Your aim must be the same...."
Digging deep into their bag of deceitful practices, the
international bankers pulled off their greatest coup to date - the
creation of the privately owned
Federal Reserve System, which placed
control of the finances of the United States securely in the hands
of the power-crazed money monopolists. Paul Warburg became the
'Fed's' first chairman!
Congressman Charles Lindbergh put his finger firmly on the truth
when he stated, just after the 'Federal' Reserve Act was passed by a
depleted Congress on December 23, 1913:
"The Act establishes the most
gigantic trust on earth. When the President [Wilson] signs this
Bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be
legalized....The greatest crime of the ages is perpetrated by
this banking and currency bill."
CONQUER THE WORLD
Having consolidated their financial grip on most of the European
nations by the middle of the last century, the international bankers
worked feverishly to extend their sphere of influence to the ends of
the earth in preparation for their final assault on the United
States - a nation which, through its unique Constitution, remained
In the decades that followed it became apparent that, in order to
achieve their goal of world domination, they would have to instigate
a series of world wars which would result in leveling of the old
world in preparation for the construction of
the New World Order.
This plan was outlined in graphic detail by Albert Pike, the
Sovereign Grand Commander of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite
of Freemasonry and the top Illuminist in America.
In a letter to Giuseppe Mazzini dated
August 15, 1871. Pike stated that the first world war was to be
fomented in order to destroy Czarist Russia - and to place that vast
land under the direct control of Illuminati agents. Russia was then
to be used as a 'bogey man' to further the aims of the Illuminati
World War II was to be fomented through manipulation of the
differences that existed between the German Nationalists and the
Political Zionists. This was to result in an expansion of Russian
influence and the establishment of a state of Israel in Palestine.
The Third World War was planned to result form the differences
stirred up by Illuminati agents between the Zionists and the Arabs.
The conflict was planned to spread worldwide.
The Illuminati, said
the letter, planned to,
"unleash the Nihilists and Atheists"
and "provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its
horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute
atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then
everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against
the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those
destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned
with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment
be without compass [direction], anxious for an ideal, but
without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the
true light through the universal manifestation of the pure
doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view, a
manifestation which will result from the general reactionary
movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and
atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."
At the time Pike wrote this remarkable
leaflet there were five different ideologies extant on the world
scene and involved in a "struggle for space and power."
The secret ideology of the
international bankers or the Illuminati as laid out in Fourth
Reich Of The Rich. Their aim was the creation of a One World
Government to be ruled over by the "Illuminated ones" at the
The Russian "Pan-Slavic" ideology
which was originally conceived by William the Great and
expounded in his will. According to A.H. Granger, the author of
England World Empire, 1916, p. 173, this ideology called for the
elimination of Austria and Germany, then the conquest of India
and Persia and ends with the words: "...which will ensure the
subjugation of Europe."
The ideology of "Asia for the
Asiatics" as expounded by the Japanese. This called for a
confederation of Asian nations dominated by Japan.
The ideology of Pan Germanism which
called for German political control over the European continent,
freedom from the Crown's restrictions on the high seas and the
adoption of an "open door" policy in trade and commerce with the
rest of the world.
Pan-American or the ideology of
"America for the Americans." This called for "trade and
friendship with all, alliances with none." Secretary of State
Root stated in 1906 that, under this ideology which was given
expression in the Monroe Doctrine of 1823, we are "debarred from
sharing in the political aims, interests, or responsibilities of
Europe, just as by the equally potential doctrine, now nearly a
century old, the European powers are excluded from sharing or
interfering in the political concerns of the sovereign states of
the Western Hemisphere."
If the plans of the international
banker/Illuminati cabal were to be brought to fruition Russia,
Germany, Japan and the United surrender, poverty and ignominy.
The Illuminati plan for world conquest, referred to by Albert Pike,
was a diabolical masterpiece of Luciferian ingenuity that would take
the lives of hundreds of millions of human beings and cost hundred
of billions of dollars in its accomplishment.
The plan that the Illuminati devised to accomplish their world
conquering goal is as simple as it is effective. Along the way
towards the accomplishment of their final objective this plan has
been adapted by the international bankers and their comrades in arms
around the globe to amass vast fortunes in real estate. As we shall
see, the implementation of the plan has been so smoothly executed
that it has frequently won applause from the ranks of those it is
destroying. Their plan can be called Urban Renewal.
It has been said that there are three types of people:
1. Those who make things happen
2. Those who watch things happen
3. Those who wonder what
The vast majority of mankind find
themselves in the last two categories. Most have "eyes to see" but
don't "see" what is happening.
Most have "ears that hear" but don't
"understand" what IS happening - LOCALLY, NATIONALLY OR
