The purpose of today’s article is to briefly reflect upon the sordid history of money in America and to relate this subject to the matter of the all-important Second Amendment to The Constitution. In doing so, I shall seek to quote some very well known Americans and others who have long recognized that unique breed of men that some believe the Bible refers to as “The Rich Men of the Earth.” President Andrew Jackson referred to bankers as a “den of vipers.” President Jackson has the unique distinction of destroying one of the earlier attempts to establish a central bank in America and being the only president to actually balance the federal budget. First of all, the reader should understand the distinction between the money that comes from a central bank (Federal Reserve, in America) and that from the sovereign government of the United States.

The difference is simple. One form of money is created by private people (out of thin air), loaned at face value, plus interest to the US Government, in effect, the taxpayers—quite the sweet deal, for the bankers would you not agree? Whereas United States notes and coins were created in definitive amounts and placed into circulation at no interest to the American taxpayer. Worse yet, with a central bank, fractional reserve banking permits much more “money” to be in circulation (nothing more than electronic entries) than is actually available. For example, there may be 3/4  trillion American dollars in circulation in the world today; but far greater sums of “electronic” money exist. Still, collectively, there is nowhere near enough to pay off our so-called “debt” to the international bankers who control the money supply of America...and the world for that matter. And there never will be enough. An easier way to understand the shame of our system is to grasp that if every American sought to withdraw their money from every bank in America, the money would simply not be there—the overwhelming majority is merely electronic entries. You see, the debt our international banker masters has created is purposely designed to be perpetual and it is mathematically impossible to pay off. This is a vast oversimplification of what has been happening in America since President Woodrow Wilson betrayed our nation just before Christmas Eve in 1913, upon signing the Federal Reserve Act.

Later in life, Wilson wrote:

“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 group of dominant men.”

Wilson’s quote is worth reading several times. Think.

A very brave man, Congressman Louis T. McFadden of Pennsylvania, actually brought charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank System, The Comptroller of the Currency and the Secretary of the United States Treasury for many acts the Honorable Mr. McFadden felt were outright criminal. These acts included (but were not limited to) conspiracy, unlawful conversion, fraud, and treason! McFadden’s petition was referred to the House Judiciary Committee—where it has sat, untouched, since May 23, 1933. Congressman McFadden made numerous speeches on the Floor of the House and was Chairman of the Banking and Currency Committee for over 10 years. Indeed, this was a man who spoke with the authority of knowledge and truth—and was undoubtedly feared and hated for this. Interestingly, Mr. McFadden was elected as both a Democrat and a Republican. Thus, labeling him “partisan” would be moot. In 1934, Congressman McFadden made the following comment on the Floor of the House, which I shall paraphrase. Although slightly lengthily, these comments are WELL worth reading, and please bear in mind that these words were entered into the Congressional Record in 1934!

“Mr. Chairman, we have in the Country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks, hereinafter called the Fed. The Fed has cheated the Government of these United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the nation’s debt. The depredations and iniquities of the Fed has cost enough money to pay the National debt several times over. This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of these United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through the defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Fed and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it. Some people think that the Federal Reserve Banks are United States Government institutions. They are private monopolies which prey upon the people of these United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers; foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers; and rich and predatory money lenders. In that dark crew of financial pirates there are those who would cut a man’s throat to get a dollar out of his pocket; there are those who send money into states to buy votes to control our legislatures; there are those who maintain international propaganda for the purpose of deceiving us into the granting of new concessions which will permit them to cover up their past misdeeds and set again in motion their gigantic train of crime. These twelve private credit monopolies were deceitfully and disloyally foisted upon this country by the bankers who came here from Europe...these bankers took money out of this country to finance Japan in a war against Russia...created a reign of terror in Russia with our money...financed Trotsky’s passage from New York to Russia to that he might assist in the destruction of the Russian Empire...fomented and instigated the Russian Revolution...placed a large fund of American dollars at Trotsky’s disposal at one of their branch banks in Sweden...”

The words of former Congressman McFadden are quite revealing. Imagine how far along the corruption has now gone! In sum, J.P. Morgan, according to many, artificially created a panic in 1907, spreading rumors that all banks were going under and causing a “rush” on deposits. In 1913, the Fed was created and has complete control over interest rates (which impacts everything from the car you want to buy, to a home, to the availability of loans, and the rates associated therein). In other words, entire regions can be economically depressed by literally flicking an economic switch. The Fed controls creation of all money, in defiance of Article I, Section 8 of The Constitution, which, in part, states that Congress shall have the power “To coin money, regulate the value thereof...”

Andrew Jackson stated “If Congress has the right under the Constitution to issue paper money, it was given them to use themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations.” Abraham Lincoln stated “The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying powers of consumers. By the adoption of these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity.”

The Fed has never been externally audited. Although called “federal,” aside from token Government oversight, it is privately owned. It’s policies are not approved by Congress or the President! It can inflate and deflate the money supply, at will! It has been speculated that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)—another highly questionable constitutional institution—was created solely to pay our debt to these international money vultures; that the IRS is, in effect, nothing more than a collection agency for the Fed. William Jefferson Clinton’s mentor, the late Carroll Quiqley, insider and Georgetown professor wrote in his 1966 tome Tragedy and Hope, “The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.” Whoa. Think about that.

Is this goal nearing completion today? Is America standing in the way of the final hegemony relegating us to just another third-world nation where men in black ski masks knock in our doors in the middle of the night and “disappear” our friends, relatives, neighbors, and other “thought criminals?” Folks, that IS the reality in a huge part of the world’s nations. Do we want to go there? I do not think so; but is that where we are heading, slowly but surely?
As recently as 1993, the infamous Congressman James Trafficant, Jr. rose to speak in the Floor of the House. What do you think he had to say? For those who are interested, do an Internet search on “The Bankruptcy of the United States, United States Congressional Record, March 17, 1993 Vol. 33, page H-1303.” I will offer a few brief excerpts and then proceed to conclude this article. Trafficant stated:

“Mr. Speaker, we are here now in chapter 11. Members of Congress are official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any bankrupt entity in world history, the US Government...It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law, 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent....The receivers of the United States Bankruptcy are the International Bankers, via the United Nations, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund. All United States Offices, Officials, and Departments are now operating within a de facto status in name only under Emergency War Powers. With the Constitutional Republican form of Government now dissolved, the receivers of the Bankruptcy have adopted a new form of government for the United States. This new form of government is known as a Democracy, being an established Socialist/Communist order...”

I urge you to research and read the full text of former Congressman Trafficant’s words. It does not appear unreasonable to conclude that there is at least a possibility that Mr. Trafficant is now in jail, in part due to his opinions.
I have personally concluded several possibilities concerning every president since Woodrow Wilson. They were either too stupid to understand what had been created under the auspices of the Fed and therefore did nothing; they were paid off or blackmailed; or, they fully supported the goals of the international bankers behind the Fed—namely, to create a one-world political and economic system. So, there you have it, in my opinion, every president since Wilson, almost without exception (evidence that President Kennedy attempted to undermine the Fed by issuing US Notes—not Federal Reserve Notes has been cited by many) has either been stupid, bribed, blackmailable, a genuine believer in the objectives of the New World Order, or some combination thereof. Putting aside the made-for-TV personalities of presidents we have come to accept as reality, do the words sedition and treason come to mind? What do you think? I think we want to trust our leaders; but I also think we had better heed the advice of those who signed The Constitution and remain vigilant concerning our fledgling Republic.  

Many brave men continue to speak out against the corrupt system that has ruled American and perhaps the world, with an iron first, for so very long. It would appear that they do so at their own peril, however. Congressman Ron Paul appears to be a good example. And of course, we would be remiss in not mentioning the tireless efforts of Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson, who run, by far, the most outstanding websites (, and for those seeking journalism aimed at uncovering the truth. Our founding fathers repeatedly warned us of the need to protect ourselves through means such as these, namely education, such as that involving The Constitution, The Bill of Rights, and, frankly, by staying armed, an advantage we were intended to have over the other nations of the world.

However, when it comes to arms, America has been brainwashed beyond belief, as has Canada, England, France, and just about every other western nation. The “Receivers” do not want to have to collect their unconstitutional interest, your land, and property at the end of barrel of a rifle or gun (we are too many, they too few); no, they want you disarmed and helpless. They want to pit people against people. Culture against culture. Nation against nation. Create fear and offer fascist solutions. It is always black against White. Asian against Hispanic. Race versus race. Young versus old. Instill fear and more fear. I do not know about you, but I endeavor to treat every person I meet just like I would a friend or family member. I do not care what color you are, what culture you embrace. I encourage you not to fall into the trap of those who seek to divide us, as Americans! One of the most unfortunate success stories that has managed to divide people along racial, cultural, and gender lines is the war against the Second Amendment. Folks, it is a right. Our founding fathers did not mince words on the subject. Their wisdom is supported when statistics repeatedly show that those towns, counties, and states that either require their residents to be armed or otherwise strongly support the Second Amendment to The Constitution have dramatically lower crime rates. If you were a criminal, would you want to go where there is a good chance someone will shoot you if you attempt to deprive someone of life, liberty, or property...or would you rather go where guns are practically banned...say, like Washington D.C. or Great Britain—in those locations, gun crimes are skyrocketing! The truth is not a mystery; in fact, it is a given. Guns save lives, not the other way around. I am sickened when I hear of people going to jail for shooting some criminal who has intruded in a private residence—this is ridiculous!

Wrapping up, I will leave you with some very plain quotes from those gun-loving right-wing extremists who founded this country. “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”–Thomas Jefferson. “Americans need not fear the federal government because they enjoy the advantage of being armed, which you possess over the people of almost every other nation.” – James Madison. “I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”–George Mason. “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.”–Patrick Henry. “It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from his government.”–Thomas Paine.

I think you get the message. Liberty is not free and the people who are running the show in this country and throughout most of the world do not want you to fight for your God-given rights. But George Washington did! So did Thomas Jefferson! So did Patrick Henry! So did countless others whose names we instinctively know. Today, why is it that their words seem so, well, politically incorrect. The answer is plain: We have been brainwashed into believing that government will always take care of us, that we do not need to worry about protecting ourselves—when the known history of the entire world proves this to be nothing less than a bold lie! What do you think the response of these early American revolutionaries would be to the tyranny of the Fed, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and United Nations? Do you think they would want you to support federal registration of all handguns, the USA PATRIOT Act, and the Homeland Security Act? Do you?!!

I leave you with several more quotes. “Liberties are not given; they are taken.–Aldous Huxley. “Ye shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you angry.”–Aldous Huxley. “Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far better that you fear the media, for they will steal your HONOR. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse.”–Mark Twain. And finally, “The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic, and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the State.”–Dr. Joseph M. Goebbels, Propaganda Minister, Nazi Germany.

Let us continue to expose the lie!

Love Of Money Is The Root Of All Evil: And In America, Ignorance Of Money Runs A Close Second

By Christopher Mark

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks...will deprive the people of  all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

-Thomas Jefferson
