Eustace Mullins, known for his seminal book, The Secrets of The Federal Reserve, passed away at the age of eighty-seven on February 2, 2010.
His passing, like his books, was completely buried in the establishment media. For all his efforts in revealing the nature of "our" banking system, he achieved the status of a non-person, a blacked-out dissident in the American Oligarchy.
While I may not agree with many of Mullins' other positions and assertions he remains worthy of respect for his voluminous research into the ruling elites and his revelations concerning their grasp on our institutions and way of life.
Eustace Mullins was an American political writer, author and biographer. He also served honorably in the Army Air Force for three years during World War II. He later went to work for the Library of Congress and was cleared by the Office of Naval Intelligence to photograph top secret documents, and he also had entree to many offices on Capitol Hill. This led to his ability to research many arcane books, documents and records not available to the public a fascination that eventually became a lifelong pursuit.
As an amateur poet himself, in 1948, some friends persuaded him to visit the great American expatriate poet Ezra Pound, who was then being held "as a political prisoner' in St Elizabeth's hospital. The reason for his involuntary confinement was, as Wikipedia noted, that "Pound believed that economics was the core issue for the cause of World War II. Specifically, his talks were largely about usury and the notion that representative democracy has been usurped by bankers' infiltration of governments through the existence of central banks, which made governments pay interest to private banks for the use of their own money. He maintained that the central bank's ability to create money out of thin air allowed banking interests to buy up American and British media outlets to sway opinion in favor of the war and the banks. Pound believed that economic freedom was a prerequisite for a free country. Inevitably, he touched on various sensitive political matters in his denunciations of the war. In addition, various comments of his were considered anti-semitic."
We must remember here that the struggles over banking, as well as the treason of Woodrow Wilson in signing the Federal Reserve Act (an act he deeply regretted on his death bed) had been raging ever since the founding of the country. Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln attempted to unseat the "London Connection" bankers among others. Later, the 1929 Crash on Wall Street and the Great Depression meant the issue was again red hot, and with rhetoric to match. Today, with another market crash and emerging depression, and rapacious looting by bankers, we are again at the same juncture in history.
In any event, the epithet of anti-semitism, and the ever-reliable ad hominem deflection, has been hurled at many of the critics of central banks and their private owners, including Mullins. The latest to experience this unwarranted defamation is Matt Taibi, for his revealing articles in Rolling Stone Magazine on the corruption on Wall Street and in "our" banking system.
Clearly, however, with regard to the banking system and the "Federal" Reserve, the issue of anti-semitism is completely irrelevant. It is not a matter of religion or the ethnicity of central bank stock owners, it is a matter of the few controlling the money and credit of the many, period - and in contravention of the Constitution and intent of the founders.
As a librarian of Congress with special access to top secret documents and records, and at the urging of Ezra Pound, Mullins continued his research into the banking system ownership and the influential foundations of the ruling elite. As an expatriate, Ezra Pound had already done extensive research in the libraries of Europe and so his material served as a starting point for Mullins' research.
As Mullins noted in his book, The World Order Our Secret Rulers, "The American people remain blissfully unaware that their Constitutional government with its separated powers of legislature, judicial and executive departments, has been entirely superseded by the foundations, which generate basic policy for all three branches... staffs of all three departments are heavily infiltrated by foundation operatives. The CIA functions as the coordinating agency between foundations and the departments of government."
Indeed, as we've seen in administration after administration, regardless of party, it is these interlocking foundation relationships and corporate directorships that constitute a web of control over our "managed democracy. The same people beget the same people in positions of power and influence, and oligarchy rules behind a facade of democracy.
It is the job of establishment corporate media to prevent revealing such relationships and influence to the American people, and to maintain the pretense of democracy and hide the rude fact of fascist oligarchy. Once again, however, the game is up, the mask is off, and the people want banker's blood today. We want our country back.
But will we get it, or will it be more wars and market manipulations while distraction and dissuasion continue to serve the ruling elite? Who is the next Mullins?
What Mullins revealed in his books is the extent of the societal control and the willingness of the ruling elite to wage wars and to serve up penury for Americans and punishments for dissidents.
To understand the depth of the paranoia of the Banksters, in 1956, all copies of the German edition of Mullin's The Secrets Of The Federal Reserve were seized by German police and ordered to be burned by a German court - all on the pretext that it was "anti-semitic." As Mullins notes, "the German Edition was a word for word translation of my original book, which contained no anti-semitic material, and which no one had ever claimed to be anti-semitic."
Clearly, any book burning in 1956 is a throwback to the Inquisition days of the Middle ages, as well a revelation into the devious and dangerous mentality of the banksters and their behind-the-scenes powers.
