How many wars are started for no other reason than to force privately-owned central banks into the economic systems of nations? And why has the US government been mired in so many military actions in other nations that do not have privately-owned central banks?
To answer these questions we should start at America's beginning. According to Ben Franklin and others, the United States fought the American Revolution primarily over King George III's Currency act, which forced the colonists to conduct their business using no currency other than printed bank notes borrowed at interest from the Bank of England.
After the revolution, the new United States adopted a radically different economic system in which the government issued its own value-based money, so that private banks like the Bank of England could no longer siphon off a share of the wealth of American workers by way of privately-originated, interest-bearing bank notes. The Bank of England had to be stopped from doing exactly what America's privately-owned central bank does today.
Bankers are absolutely dedicated to their schemes for siphoning off a share of our income and wealth (which, parasites that they are, is their life's blood). They know full well how easy it is to corrupt a nation's leaders to get what they want. And so it was that just one year after Mayer Amschel Rothschild had uttered his infamous "Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws," the bankers succeeded in setting up a new, privately-owned central bank called The First Bank of the United States, largely through the efforts of the Rothschild's chief US supporter, Alexander Hamilton. Founded in 1791, by the end of its twenty-year charter The First Bank of the United States had almost ruined our nation's economy, while enriching its bankster owners in the process. Congress therefore refused to renew their charter and signaled its intention to go back to a government-issued currency on which the people paid no interest at all to any banker. This then resulted in a threat from Nathan Mayer Rothschild against the US government: "Either the application for renewal of the charter will be granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war." But Congress still refused to renew the charter for the First Bank of the United States, whereupon Nathan Rothschild railed, "Teach those impudent Americans a lesson! Bring them back to colonial status!" Then, financed by the Rothschild-controlled Bank of England, Britain launched the war of 1812. The purpose was to either recolonize the United States and force it back into debt-slavery (to the Bank of England), or to plunge the United States into so much debt that Americans would then be forced to accept a new privately-owned central bank.
Rothschild's plan worked. Even though the War of 1812 was won by the United States, Congress was forced to grant a new charter for yet another privately-owned central bank, to once again issue the public currency in the form of loans at interest. This new private bank was called The Second Bank of the United States. So, once again, "private' bankers were in control of the nation's money supply and cared not who made the laws, as long as the necessary legislation could be purchased. Nor did they care how many British and American soldiers had to die so that they could recapture the very lucrative arrangements whereby the gullible and unknowing citizens of the United States could be systematically and surreptitiously milked.
Once again, therefore, the nation was plunged into debt, unemployment, and poverty by the predations of a privately-owned central bank. So it was that in 1832, Andrew Jackson successfully campaigned for his second term as President under the slogan, "Jackson And No Bank!" (i.e. no privately-owned central bank.) True to his word, Jackson succeeded in blocking the renewal of the charter for the Second Bank of the United States, addressing these early banksters as follows:
"Gentlemen! I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal, (bringing his fist down on the table) I will rout you out!"
(This quote is taken from the original minutes of the Philadelphia committee of the citizens sent to meet with President Jackson (February 1834), and is quoted in the book, Andrew Jackson and the Bank of the United States (1928) by Stan V. Henkels)
Shortly after President Jackson (the only American President to actually pay off the national debt) ended the life of the predatory Second Bank of the United States, there was an attempted assassination, which failed when both pistols used by the would-be assassin, Richard Lawrence, failed to fire. Lawrence later said that with Jackson dead, "Money would be more aplenty."
Challenging the corporate control of media, education and history
Our public school system is subservient to the bankers' wishes to keep certain important aspects of US history from us, just as the corporate media is subservient to Monsanto's wishes to keep the dangers of GMOs from us. Thus it should come as no surprise that many of the real reasons for the Civil War are not well known to the average American.
