…by Jonas E. Alexis and Henry Makow

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.” —Thomas Jefferson

Jonas E. Alexis: During the Revolution of 1848, Karl Marx wrote that “the Jew, who in Vienna, for example, is only tolerated, determines the fate of the whole Empire by his financial power. The Jew, who may have no rights in the smallest German states, decides the fate of Europe. This is not an isolated fact. The Jew has emancipated himself in a Jewish manner, not only because he has acquired financial power, but also because…money has become a world power and the practical Jewish spirit has become the practical spirit of the Christian nations.”[1]

Marx had the Rothschilds in mind when he wrote this. Heinrich Heine likewise noted, “No one does more to further the revolution than the Rothschilds themselves…and, though it may sound even more strange, these Rothschilds, the bankers of kings, these princely pursestring-holders, whose European-state system, nevertheless carry in their minds a consciousness of their revolutionary mission.”[2]

According to Heine, “the Rothschild ‘system’ is also potentially revolutionary in itself” because since it “possesses the moral force or power which religion has lost, it can act as a surrogate for religion—indeed, it is a new religion, and when the old religion finally goes under it will provide substitutes for its practical blessings strangely enough, it is once again the Jews who invented this new religion.”[3] Heine saw James Rothschild as “a powerful destroyer of patrician privilege, and the founder of a new democracy.”[4]

British philo-Semitic historian Niall Ferguson noted that “not only had the Rothschilds replaced the old aristocracy; they also represented a new materialist religion. ‘Money is the god of our time,’ declared Heine in March 1841, ‘and Rothschild is his prophet.’”[5] Heine saw this as dangerous. Marx saw it too. The “new materialist religion” was Mammon, which came in the form of capitalism.

The Rothschilds were part of the banking cartel then, and they are still trying to manipulate the economic infrastructure in even countries like South Africa. But there is more here than meets the eye and ear. Henry Makow is going to unpack these deep things for us.

Henry Makow: In November 1949, Eustace Mullins, 25, was a researcher in Washington DC when friends invited him to visit the famous American poet Ezra Pound, who was confined at St. Elizabeth’s Mental Hospital and listed as a “political prisoner.”

A leading figure in Modern English literature, Pound was the editor and critic who introduced the world to James Joyce, W.B. Yeats and T.S. Eliot. During the Second World War, he was charged with treason for broadcasts on Rome Radio that questioned the motives behind America’s involvement.

Pound commissioned Mullins to examine the influence of the banking establishment on U.S. policy. Mullins spent every morning for two years in the Library of Congress and met with Pound every afternoon. The resulting manuscript, “The Secrets of the Federal Reserve” proved too hot for any American publisher to handle. Nineteen rejected it. One said, “you’ll never get this published in New York.” When it finally appeared in Germany in 1955, the U.S. Military Government confiscated all 10,000 copies and burned them.

Thanks to the American Patriot Friends Network, this book is freely available on line. (I recommend you save it on your desktop, as I did.) Why is it so (excuse the pun) inflammatory?

Essentially it paints a picture of the world, and the role of the United States, which is radically different from the one we are given in school or in the media.

“Notwithstanding the war of independence against England,” writes Mullins, “we remained an economic and financial colony of Great Britain.” Between 1865 and 1913, he says London bankers led by the Rothschilds used agents such as J.P. Morgan and J.D. Rockefeller to gain control of American industry and organize it into cartels.

Where did these bankers get the money? For over 200 years, European bankers have been able to draw on the credit of their host countries to print it!

In the Seventeenth Century, the moneylenders and the aristocracy made a pact. If the king would make paper currency a liability of the state, the moneylenders would print as much as he liked! Thus the Banks of England, France and the Reichsbank came into being but they were all private corporations and remain so today.

According to this nefarious pact, the moneylenders got to charge interest on assets they created out of thin air. The aristocracy all took shares in the central banks plus they got to finance a burgeoning government and to wage costly wars.

This piece of chicanery is at the heart what plagues humanity.

The bankers have a vested interest in the state (i.e. the people) incurring as much debt as possible. They are behind the Marxist, socialist and liberal movements which call for big government and social spending. They are behind the catastrophic wars of the last century. The Warburgs financed the Bolshevik Revolution.

Naturally if you can create money out of thin air, your first instinct is to buy tangible assets with it. There is a powerful impulse to use debt to control nations and take over their real assets. This is the essence of the so-called Third World Debt crisis. Dedicated to owning all wealth and enslaving humanity, an irresistible vampire has been unleashed upon the world

Much of Mullins book is devoted to the subterfuge by which the United States was drawn into its lethal embrace. In 1913, the Owen-Glass Bill gave mostly foreign-controlled banks (posing as “the Federal Reserve”) the right to create currency based on the credit of the United States government and to charge it interest for doing it!

To accomplish this, the bankers had to rig the election of 1913 in order to get Woodrow Wilson elected. Then their stooges in Congress passed the legislation on December 22 after their opponents had gone home for Christmas.

“This act establishes the most gigantic trust [cartel] on earth,” Congressman Charles Lindbergh said at the time. “When the President signs this bill; the invisible government by the Monetary Power will be legalized. The people may not know it immediately but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed.”

Mullins explains that the legislation passed just in time for the American people to finance World War One. After maintaining standing armies for 50 years, European powers no longer could afford the luxury of another war. But the U.S. was relatively debt free and made the whole thing possible.

What would WWI have been without Germany? Apparently Germany was not self-sufficient in food and would have had to sit out this war. In the nick of time, the bankers organized something called “The Belgium Relief Committee” which channeled billions of dollars worth of U.S. meat and potatoes not to Belgium but to Germany. When Edith Cavell, an American working in a Belgium hospital pointed this out, British intelligence had the Germans arrest and execute her.

Mullins makes a convincing case that every U.S. President since Wilson has been a lackey of the bankers. J.F. Kennedy was assassinated because he started to print his own U.S. government-backed currency. This is also the transgression that led to the murders of Presidents Abraham Lincoln and James Garfield.

In 2001 alone, the American people paid $360 billion in interest to the bankers. To maintain this massive fraud, the bankers enforce an iron grip on the political and cultural organs of the nation. According to Mullins, “The New York Times” is owned by the Kuhn Loeb while “The Washington Post” is owned by Lazard Freres. In Europe the Rothschilds own Reuters as well as the French and German news services.

I presume US publishers, TV networks and movie producers are similarly beholden. Rockefellers, Carnegies and the Fords endow the nations’ libraries and universities. Journalists and professors dutifully parrot fantasies about democracy and freedom. Mind control laboratories run by the CIA and the British army (The Tavistock Institute) dream up ways to manipulate and undermine the population. The psychological sterilization of the human female is an example.

The “War on Terror” is part of the banking cabal’s plan to consolidate its grip on humanity in a friendly (or not so friendly) fascist “New World Order.” They want to secure their political, economic and social grip on the obstreperous Muslim world, as well as build up a security apparatus in case the docile populations of the West become restive.

Well, at least the cosmic battle between Good and Evil is out in the open at last!

  1. “The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend” Robertson Davies. We need more prepared minds. Consider “Cui Bono” – for whose benefit. The US National Debt is $31 trillion. Cui Bono? What can one say about a society – that will be more in debt (public/private) tomorrow than today. IMHO – the root cause of our challenges ares the continued transfer of “power, control, and wealth” from working people/communities to the elites. Thanks for this article – an important subject. Making debt slaves of us all.

  2. The Zio-Rothschild International Financial Crime Syndicate Clique/CLAN, owners of the ‘City of London’ & “Central Banking”-Federal Reserve, have been the ‘movers and shakers’ of the World since the time of Napoleon! The Zio-Rothschild Clan have unleashed on Mankind all the greatest, horrors/Wars and have Profited from the deaths/sufferings of many Hundreds of Millions, in the past 3 Centuries! The Rothschilds must receive the same FATE as what they have given to the Royals of France and Russia!!

  3. Many other analysts maintain that the Rottenfeller Empire is who owns and controlls everything. Already in the late 1800s, during the Oil Wars, Standard Oil was battling the Rottenchilds’ Shell and BP, often compromising, then back to battle. Aside from the Oil, banking ownership and control of the world. It’s the Rottenfeller Empire who owns the World Bank, the IMF, CFR, and just about everything else.
    And retaliations continued, in 2015 David Rottenfeller’s son died in an airplane “accident”
    The Rottenfellers had an agent working for them in the early 1900s, named Joseph Jugasvilli. His role was to organize the destruction of the oil fields in Baku, and spank the Rottenchilds and Nobel Brothers. Joseph’s stage name, as he was later known, was Joseph Stalin-

    • Other factors like the fact that England/British Empire had to pay for the WWII debt incurred in their dismantling, and those banks were Wall Street Banks. The last payment made was in 2006. The Rottenfellers also control the dual agent Heinz Kissinger and have so since they financed his Harvard Education, etc

    Quotes from Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars;
    “In order to achieve a totally predictable economy, the low-class elements of society must be brought under total control, i.e., must be housebroken, trained, and assigned a yoke and long-term social duties from a very early age, before they have an opportunity to question the propriety of the matter”.

    “Energy is recognized as the key to all activity on earth. Natural science is the study of the sources and control of natural energy, and social science, theoretically expressed as economics, is the study of the sources and control of social energy. Both are bookkeeping systems:
    Therefore, mathematics is the primary energy science. And the bookkeeper can be king if the public can be kept ignorant of the methodology of the bookkeeping”.

  5. Karl Marx was a jew. Trained in the USA before he wrote Das Kapital. He was also an Illuminati. Book by Juri Lina. Communism is Judaism. Dutch MSM Dagblad Trouw wrote an article that all European Jews descend from normal inhabitants in Europe. Ashkenazi jews are also not Semites. Are they a fake created in isolation people by one of the jewish sectleaders in Europe? Putin is also of jewish descent and great friends with rabbis in Israel. WW I and WW II were Rotschild wars. First one in the Crimea. What is special there that they are hellbent on owning the region. Zelensky intends to create a jewish autonomous state as part of the Greater Israel. Netanyahu intended to found a second jewish state in Crimea, resettling some of the settlers in the West Bank without returning that region to the Palestines who according to some researchers were the original jews never leaving the area. Shlomo Sand. Prophet Mohammed also of jewish descent.

  6. The Jews moved into the vacuum created by the Templers being exculpated by the Church. The Rothschilds actually came late to the game as the Venicians. Anyone remember the Merchant of Venice? They were just one of 13 families who have sought world domination. Some intel suggests that they have been eliminated. Would be nice if it were true.

  7. In the Hepburn vs. Griswold legal tender (for fiat) case before the US Supreme Court in 1870, the presiding Chief Justice was Salmon P. Chase, Lincoln’s Treasury Secretary. At this time there were two vacancies on the court. Voting in the majority(4-3), Chase said there was no legal tender authority in the constitution. To his credit, this was a complete reversal of his position on the legal tender of “greenbacks” during the Civil War as then Treasury Secretary. In the Hepburn vs Griswold decision, he noted that the Civil War was an exception, and that legal tender was a war measure which had to be done out of necessity, but now the war was over.
    Yet, a year later, in 1871, in another legal tender case before the court; Knox vs. Lee, and with the addition of two new justices, William Strong, of Pennsylvania, and Joseph Bradley, of New Jersey, in a 5-4 decision, the court now said that there was legal tender power in the constitution, not because of anything written in the constitution, but because legal tender came with sovereignty, that other sovereign nations had legal tender power and therefore the US did as well.
    One has to wonder about the true loyalties of justices Strong and Bradley. Two diametrically opposed decisions so close together in time, with two new members?

  8. During JFK’s administration, the millions of $1 Silver Certificate blue seal notes in use were replaced by the green seal $1 Federal Reserve Note, completing the transition of the nation’s currency to fiat Fed paper. Red seal United States Notes were printed during his term, but solely to replace notes worn in circulation, and just some 30 million $2’s and 65 million $5’s. A very small fraction of the money supply, these notes were printed to satisfy the 1862 law that mandated exactly $346,681,016 of them remain outstanding at all times. This is what the article incorrectly identifies as JFK’s “own U.S. government-backed currency.” He had nothing to do with the century-old legislation that created them.

    The factual history of U.S. currency is readily accessible in Krause Publication’s paper money collector guide, “Standard Catalogue of United States Paper Money.” a recommended reference.

    • My understanding of JFK’s printing of these silver certificates was to give the option of those who held them to exchange them for silver if so desired. They were a guarantee of the holders access to real silver or real money.

  9. One of your own contributors on VT made an excellent video on the ‘Banksters” and Your very editor Jim Dean wrote a glowing review of him, part of which can be seen below and read entirely on the VT site here, https://www.veteranstoday.com/2016/01/05/why-did-the-framers-of-the-constitution-choose-the-word-infringed-for-the-second-amendment/
    John has been busy since his first foray into the belly of the state sponsored terrorism beast. He has remained in the fight continuing to carve out a niche for himself and friends. We look forward sharing some of his ongoing work with our VT readers, also an eclectic bunch… Jim W. Dean

    • In my quest for truthfulness – I collect & connect “dots.” A challenge given the noise; gas-lighting, gatekeepers, guard rails, narratives, algorithms, fake binaries, and Mass Media B.S.. And “Cui Bono” (for whose benefit) is often a master ‘”dot”. I often assess a Web site/articles by the comments provided. I like “VT” as I find the comments just rock solid. e.g. – Axiomatic Truth “An axiom is a principle widely accepted on the basis of its intrinsic merit, or one regarded as self-evidently true. A statement that is axiomatic, therefore, is one against which few people would argue.” ~ Webster Dictionary Thank you – VooDoo6Actual.
