We all know "behind" the banks are the vampire elites, e.g., The Bilderberg Group and a few thousand billionaire/trillionaire filth, but at least now we know the "face" of The Beast.
As a relevant aside, we should never forget that Bill and Hillary Clinton have been licking the jack boots of the Bilderberg Group, the Monsanto corporation (described as the most toxic corporation on the planet, which is steadily poisoning the entire food supply of the Earth), but probably most of all, the Israel Lobby (please read the objective and documented book with this title about how this astronomically rich lobby is literally destroying human civilization and that the psychotically righteous Israeli right wing does not now and never has wanted a "two state solution" -- rather they openly want to steal the entire State of Palestine.)
Remember The Beast (mentally ill religious fanatics, the lunatic right wing of every country on the Earth, and parasitical, vampire elites), functions best is it's "Heart of Darkness", and here the "vampire" image fits perfectly, since their ultimate fear is the "daylight" of truth.
We also know The Beast has been ravaging civilization (in various historical forms) for probably thousands of years; however, for the last few hundred years the ultimate weapon of The Beast has been banks, banks, and more banks.
Ironically, the billionaire bailout of banks (which Obama has done nothing to stop!), followed by the financial rape of frequently doubling bank credit card rates, has drawn the world's attention to "the banks". Suddenly, we see them for what the are: the face and weapon of The Beast.
The Beast image has been very useful, particularly with its spiritual innuendos, but you can only go so far with metaphors and images, and eventually you need something more concrete and specific for the target of America's rage.
And now we have it! BANKS are where we can focus our rage. BANKS basically totally explain the death of our economy – and our Constitutional Republic. BANKS are warehouses of treason, limitless dishonesty, limitless greed, and the ultimate origin of the rape of America.
Again, "behind" the banks are a few thousand billionaires and trillionaires, but Daddy Rockefeller can no longer be seen as an aging American, because now we KNOW this monster is responsible not only for the bankruptcy of millions of Americans (and vulnerable people all around the globe); he is also responsible either directly or indirectly for the deaths of literally millions of human beings. The evidence continues to mount that groups like "The Illuminati" are systematically committing planet-wide genocide as we speak.
