News and means for supranational Banks to avoid
another Crash due to their greed and to continue their desperate Agenda for 'Reset' of humanity.
From the day of September 11, 2001 into December 2008 I contributed newspaper columns, online articles, interviews, and three books that are concerned with the crimes of 9/11/01.
These studies quickly realized that " '9/11' " is part of larger, global crimes against humanity. Understanding that the World Trade Center's Twin Towers and Building 7 must have been brought down by controlled demolition opened into more understanding of orchestrators and ends. In 2002 I published the book " '9/11' " / Facing Our Fascist State. Research for it helped to make a lot of contemporary events and preceding history gruesomely clear. One section of FOFS is titled 'Lords of a Feudal New World Order.'
In 2004 I gave a talk in Toronto that embodied further research: 'The Financiers behind " '9/11' " '. This talk was basis for one section of the Waking Up From Our Nightmare book that Jim Hoffman and I co-wrote and brought out in August 2004. In 2005 I published a follow-up to FOFS. This short book has a long title: To Prevent the Next " '9/11' " / Abandoning the 'New World Order' of Financiers' Corporate State.
The excerpt below, the first in this 'Always the Banksters' series
for March 2022 and the companion crises of COVID-19 and
war in the Ukraine, chronicles about 220 years of financiers secretive empire. The money-lenders and money-changers have extended their Banks and private but national Central Banks across Europe, North and South America, India, China, Africa, Australia, ... everywhere their cunning but diseased hubris can control economies and societies.
My 2008 book, The World Is Turning: " '9/11' ", the Movement for Justice, and Reclaiming America for the World, added two commentators to its inclusion of To Prevent. You can meet them below--Auld Krow and Sid the Elephant. They're kind of in the
spirit of Nat King Cole and Stubby Kaye in "Cat Ballou" or Jonathan Richman and Tommy Larkins in "There's Something About Mary." The two friends--caustic bird AULD KROW
perched upon the often wrinkled brow of SID THE ELEPHANT--
represent afflictions and insights of We Masses, we billions who remain a working-class of boundless and unfulfilled genius, as
we've suffered and still suffer under profiteers of the empire behind Empires, the Ruling Few.

More than 200 Years of Conspiracies by Financiers,
Nobility, and Politicians
to Gain Profits and Power from Wars, Revolutions and Assassinations
The main education I've received since finishing " ' 9/11' " / Facing Our Fascist State in 2002 concerns banking and bankers' creation and manipulation of the most murderous pretexts, deprivations and conflicts that have ravaged humanity from the mid-18th century to " '9/11' " and beyond.
Among the prime objectives of these private bankers has been control of nations' money-supply and currencies. While waging vicious wars of economic conquest throughout the world, these financiers have kept themselves even more removed from physical danger than the politicians who have advanced their interests.
Let me here try to give an overview of this deeply layered history.
Financiers' conspiracies in the West over the past two and one-half
centuries may be traced through the growing wealth and power of
one family, the Rothschilds, and this family's accumulated and often
inbred allies, criminals equal to them, whether nominal Jews,
Protestants, Catholics, Moslems, or other.
Mayer Amschel Bauer was the founding father of the Rothschild
family's supranational empire. Born in 1743, the money-lender
Bauer became a close associate of the Elector of Hesse, William IX.
Bauer/Rothschild profited by lending of the Elector's fees for
supplying Hessian troops to King George III of England during the
American Revolutionary War. He changed the family's surname to
Rothschild (meaning 'Red Shield', their subsequent insignia) to
accord with the sign he'd put up for his business: an eagle on a red
shield with a golden arrow extending from each of the bird of prey's
In the late 18th century Mayer Amschel sent one son each out to
begin banking business in five European capitals: London, Paris,
Frankfort, Vienna and Venice. Nathan in London and James in Paris
especially flourished, Nathan most due to Napoleon's last war and
James most due to the induced 1819 Panic across France.
The brothers' profits let them gain shared control of the Bank of
England and Bank of France and the issuance of these nations' and
Austria's currencies. In a partnership that would be often repeated
over the next 180 years, they shared controlling interests in these
Banks with families of so-called nobility--Tudors, Bourbons,
Hapsburgs, et cetera, families who were themselves much inbred.
During the same late 18th century to middle 19th century span,
Rothschilds reached into the riches of 'America'.
Associates of theirs and of Illuminati theoretician Adam Weishaupt
(Alexander Hamiliton one) figured in the institution of the United
States' first two Banks that issued national currency under private
ownership. Later agents of the Rothschild family's (Nathaniel Biddle, August
Belmont or Schoenberg, George Peabody, and Junius S. Morgan)
worked to frustrate Andrew Jackson's check to any further charter
for such a privately owned 'National' Bank'. Denials of credit and
funds to U. S. farmers and other businessmen by European bankers
prompted the United States' ruinous Panics of 1837 and 1857.
Bankers' manipulations were one cause of the U. S. Civil War.
Their lowering of the price of cotton pressured economies of both
the South and North to desperation in the late 1850s. In 1859, too,
Salomon de Rothschild, he the son of James' inheritor in Paris,
Lionel, and he the great-grandson of Mayer Amschel, toured the
U. S. and defended slavery, writing that he 'would be as much a
"staunch slavery man" as the oldest plantation owner in the
Once the Civil War began, Rothschild agent Judah Benjamin
(who'd met with Salomon in New Orleans just before the war) served
as a chief advisor to Confederate President Jefferson Davis while
August Belmont (formerly Schoenberg) was the same to Abraham
Another Rothschild front-man in London and New York, George
Peabody, he the slave-trading founder of an iron-dealing company
that became headed by this and that J. P. Morgan over the next
century, supplied both Northern and Southern Armies with guns.
Peabody's and Junius S. Morgan's Company also enriched itself by
wartime speculations. 'No individuals contributed so much to flooding
our money markets and weakening financial confidence in our nationality
than George Peabody & Company, and none made more money in the
operation', the Springfield Republic of Illinois wrote in 1866. (29)
In 1866, too, the New York Times observed: 'The Bank of England
with its subsidiary banks in America (under the domination of J. P.
Morgan), the Bank of France, and the Reichsbank of Germany,
composed an interlocking and cooperative banking system, the main
objective of which was the exploitation of the people.' (30)
Then was as now, you may see, in regard to international Banks'
control for 'exploitation of the people.'
Do yah see, Sid? Facts. Facts 'und figures!
Sid the Elephant:
Also in my life I've pulled barges. I've crossed
Oceans. I've borne rails upon my back. This is hurting my feelings. I have soft feelings, Mr. Crow--I'm part-Black and part-Jewish and part-Mongol and I'm not one damned bit ashamed of any of it! I'm getting almost angry, Mr. Crow. Yes, I am!)
In 1863 the Northern States instituted another private Bank to issue
U.S. currency, the National Bank. The letter that's quoted at the start
of To Prevent ... , from Rothschild Brothers of London to their
investment-banking associates Iklheimer, Morton and Vandergould
on New York's Wall Street, is reprinted in full below.
The letter, quoted in J.R. Elson's Lightning over the Treasury Building, slyly
uses 'A Mr. John Sherman of Ohio' (a Congressman and later author
of the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890), as the mouthpiece for
perceived advantages from this National Bank whose origins actually
owed to the British Bankers Association.
Always use someone else to speak for your interests, as well as to fight wars for your benefit, might be said to be exploitative bankers' maxim.
'Dear Sirs: A Mr. John Sherman has written us from a town in
Ohio, U.S.A., as to the profits that may be made in the National
Banking business under a recent act of your Congress (National
Bank Act of 1863), a copy of which act accompanied his letter.
Apparently this act has been drawn upon the plan formulated here
last summer by the British Bankers Association and by that
Association recommended to our American friends as one that if
enacted into law, would prove highly profitable to the banking
fraternity throughout the world.
"Mr. Sherman declares that there has never before been such an
opportunity for capitalists to accumulate money, as that presented by
this act and that the old plan, of State Banks is so unpopular, that the
new scheme will, by contrast, be most favorably regarded,
notwithstanding the fact that it gives the National Banks an almost
absolute control of the National finance. 'The few who can
understand the system,' he says 'will either be so interested in its profits,
or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that
class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally
incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantages that capital
derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint and
perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical (adverse)
to their interests.' Please advise us fully as to this matter and also state
whether or not you will be of assistance to us, if we conclude to establish
a National Bank in the City of New York...
Awaiting your reply, we are
Your respectful servants.
London, June 25, 1863' (31)
At this same time in 1863, English and French warships blockaded
Northern harbors in support of the Confederacy.
When confronted with the National Bank Act and private bankers'
demands for 28% interest on lending to the Northern States,
President Abraham Lincoln remarked: 'I have two great enemies, the
Southern Army in front of me and the financial institutions in the
rear. Of the two, the one in my rear is my greatest foe.' (32)
Abraham Lincoln resisted bankers' control by his issuance of $450 million
in U. S. Constitutional Notes, currency printed by the U. S. Government itself,
free of interest-bearing charges and known by the public as "greenbacks."
Lincoln's interest-free "greenbacks" moved the London Times to
worry: 'If this mischievous financial policy, which has its origin in
the North American Republic, shall become endurated down to a
fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without
cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debt. It will have all the
money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become
prosperous without precedent in the history of the world... That
government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on
the globe.' (33)
The U. S. Civil War killed 365,00 of the North, 258,000 of the South, the
great majority of them soldiers, very few of them bankers before this War.
The printing of "greenbacks" was destroyed soon after Lincoln's
assassination. this President killed by a secret-society conspiracy (the
Knights of the Golden Circle, a Masonic offshoot), a conspiracy for
which four participants other than John Wilkes Booth were convicted
and hung. (34)
International banks had to wait 48 more years before they could
realize another entity (the Federal Reserve System) that issued U. S.
Dollars under private ownership.
During the intervening span (1863--1913) Rothschilds and their
Warburg in-laws used new and plentifully funded agents and/or
debtors (Jacob Schiff, John D. Rockefeller, William Harriman, the
Dillon ((formely Lapowski)) family) and Corporations (the Kuhn,
Loeb investment-bank of New York City; Standard Oil: U. S. Steel;
the Northern Pacific and Southern Pacific Railroads) to control and
fleece emergent U. S. industries and territories.
They also profited from thefts that went with Reconstruction.
They also promoted Jim Crow laws, the Ku Klux Klan and racist
They also induced the Panics of 1873, 1893-94 and 1907 both to
profit themselves and to compel re-institution of a central, 'money-
lending bank for the United States that they and their allies and
agents would own.
'Because of his links with the Peabody firm, Morgan [John P.
Morgan, son of Junius] had intimate and highly useful connections
with the London financial world, and during the 1870s he was
thereby able to provide the rapidly growing industrial corporations
of the United States with much-needed capital from British bankers',
The New Encyclopedia Britannica relates in Jim Marrs' excellent Rule
by Secrecy. And by the middle 1890s: 'Through a system of interlocking
memberships on the boards of companies he had reorganized or
influenced, Morgan and his banking house achieved a top-heavy control
over some of the nation's leading corporations and financial institutions.' (35).
Again, then was as now.
A memo circulated among the American Bankers Association in
1891 is clear-cut as to one plot's traps and aims. "On Sept. 1st, 1894,
we will not renew our loans under any consideration', this memo
says. 'On Sept. 1st we will demand our money. We will foreclose and
become mortgagees in possession. We can take two-thirds of the
farms west of the Mississippi, and thousands of them east of the
Mississippi as well, at our own price...Then the famers will become
tenants as in England...' (36)
Pirates, Sid! Damned pirates behind desks!
Sid the Elephant:
They rode me. They fed me. They put tassels on my tail--oh, Mr. Crow, I'm shaking now--yes, I am! I am Sid the Elephant and I know the work I have done and my family has done!)
The most famous J. P. Morgan was known as " 'the Corsair' ", one
who concentrated wealth and power within his U. S. conquests, one
who 'knew how to make governments as well as small capitalists and
armies of rebellious laborers bend to his will' (Matthew Josepehson,
The Robber Barons, 1934). He made competing firms merge into
single Corporations (General Electric, U. S. Steel, International
Harvester). And yet the gold this " 'Corsair' " lent to the U. S. Government in
1893 came from Rothschilds of Europe (37) and at his death in 1913
only 19% of his estate of $68 million was found to be owned by his
In December of 1913 Senator Nelson Aldrich of Rhode Island,
son-in-law of John D. Rockefeller, John D. Rockefeller another
Rothschild debtor via the National City Bank of Cleveland (39),
sponsored the Bill that created the Federal Reserve System.
Henceforth the Federal Reserve Bank of New York--owned
principally by Banks controlled by the Rothschild-funded
Rockefeller and Morgan families and their partners--determined the
money-supply and set the interest-rates for the United States. (40)
Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, father of the aviator, declared:
'The Federal Reserve Act establishes the most giantic trust on earth ...
The worst legisilative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking
and currency bill,' (41)
How is the Federal Reserve System unjust and dangerous for
U. S. society? Why is it an insane burden for We Masses to bear?
Through its lead Bank, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the
"Fed" may print more than $20 million in U. S. currency at cost to
itself of little more than $20.
Further, through a marvelous invention that's termed 'fractional
reserve banking', the Fed's network of private Banks may then value
this nice profit of $20- million-from-$20 at seven and one-half times
$20 million, or $150 million, in capital for loans.
Those who borrow from this sheer fabrication of capital--borrowers
such as home-buyers, shop-keepers, and the U. S., British, French,
German, et cetera Governments--are then charged usurious
interest-rates by private Banks.
In 1997 the 19,752,655 total shares of the Federal Reserve Bank of
New York were owned 32.35% by the Rockefeller-controlled Chase
Bank and 20.51% by the Morgan-controlled Citibank, according to
Eric Samuelson's article 'Central Banking and the Private Control of
How much has the United States' debt grown since "the Fed" began
to be the nations' lender?
Sheldon Emry's very useful 'Billions for Bankers--Debts for the
People' offers a summary. In 1910 the U. S. Federal debt was $1
billion, or $12.40 per citizen. In 1920, following involvement in a
World War that financiers orchestrated, the nation's debt was $24
billion, or $228 per person, 'By 1960', Emry writes, 'the U. S.
Federal debt was $284 billion, or $1,575 per citizen, and state and
local debts were mushrooming.' (43)
Now, early in our year 2005, the U. S. Federal debt is $7.5 trillion,
individual consumers' debt is about $10 trillion, and the total debt
mounted on this nation is the barely imaginable sum of $37 trillion,
four times the U. S.'s annual gross domestic product. (44)
Jim Hoffman's and my Waking Up from Our Nightmare / The 9/11/01
Crimes in New York City, supposes that such debt is setting up the
U. S. public for 'Big Falls'--for a 'Crash' and
'Depression' that will exceed 1929's. The resulting ruin would let
bankers again buy property for pennies on the (greatly devalued)
U. S. dollar and consolidate material wealth as never before.
