No Laws, Only Power
If you had the privilege of creating dollars from thin air, and loaning them to government at interest, you might do anything to protect that privilege. Control of dollars means enough power to keep the privilege going until, as congressman Patnam said, "...the time will come when people demand that this be changed."
We may be long past that time by not understanding all the warnings, including what presidents before and after Lincoln have told us about foreign central baking.
President Andrew Jackson put it this way in 1835: "You ar e a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out, and by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be revolution before morning."
The U.S. has had three Rothschild-controlled central banks. The First Bank of the United States (1791-1811); The Second Bank of the United States (1816-1836); "The Fed" (until death do us part?). Jackson vetoed renewal of the charter for the Second Bank of the United States several years early, on July 10, 1832. Not long after his "...den of vipers" declaration, Jackson survived an assassination attempt when both of the assassin's pistols misfired; later he told his vice president, "The bank, Mr. Van Buren, is trying to kill me...."
Money is power. A monopoly to create "credit money" from nothing and loan it at compound interest--that's pure power.
Rothschilds have long been reasonably candid about their predation. In 1838, Amschel Bauer Mayer Rothschild said, "Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who makes its laws."
1912, the year before the Fed doomed the U.S. to a bitter end, Nathaniel Meyer Rothschild told a group of international bankers, "Give me control of the credit of a nation, and I care not who makes the laws."
Earth is home to 196 recognized "sovereign" nations. In 2000, 189 nations had a Rothschild-controlled central bank. But since advent of the immortal "War on Terror", Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Sudan have been captured, leaving only Iran, Cuba, and North Korea still free.
What makes challenging the Rothschild Privilege so dangerous is that protecting their privilege is well within Rothschild power. Money trumps morality, and most everything else.
The four assassinated U.S. presidents--Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, Kennedy--they all challenged the Rothschild Privilege....
Lincoln fought Rothschild attempts to get involved in financing the Civil War.
So, through their agent, Treasury Secretary Salmon P. Chase, Rothschilds forced through Congress, in 1864, The National Banking Act.
Lincoln soon warned the American people:
"The money power preys upon the nation in time of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me, and causes me to tremble for the safety of our country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the republic is destroyed."
Lincoln also said, "I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe."
