Excerpts: … This act (the Federal Reserve Act), establishes the most gigantic trust on Earth … When the President signs this act, the invisible government by the money power, proven to exist by the Money Trust Investigation, will be legalized … The new law will create inflation whenever the trusts want inflation … “, Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh Sr., December, 1913 …
… Have you ever had the experience of walking into a mystery movie two-thirds of the way through? Confusing, was’nt it? All the evidence made it look as though the butler were the murderer, but in the final scenes you find out that, surprisingly, it was the man’s wife all along. You have to stay and see the beginning of the film. Then, as all the pieces fall into place, the story makes sense.
This situation is similar to one millions of Americans find themselves in today. They are confused by current happenings in the nation. They have come in as the movie, so to speak, is going into its conclusion. The earlier portion of the mystery is needed to make the whole thing understandable. (Actually, we are not really starting at the beginning, but we are going back far enough to give meaning to today’s happenings.)
In order to understand the conspiracy (to usurp the constitutional right of governments to coin money so as to force these governments to borrow money with usury [interest]), it is neccesary to have some rudimentary knowledge of banking and, particularly, of international bankers. While it would be an over-simplification to ascribe the entire conspiracy to the international bankers, they nevertheless have played the key role. Think of the (world) conspiracy as a hand with one finger labeled “international banking”, others labelled “charity foundations” (i.e. Ford, Carnegie, Rockefeller Foundations, etc.), the “anti-religion movement”, “Fabian Socialism”, and “Communism”. But it was the International Bankers of whom Professor Carroll Quigly (of the Foreign Service School at Georgetown University) was speaking when we quoted him earlier (in this book) as stating that THEIR AIM IS NOTHING LESS THAN CONTROL OF THE WORLD THROUGH FINANCE.
(Professor Quigly does not see anything harmful in this(!), only objects to the secrecy with which these aims are cloaked. Hence his book, a 1300 hundred page, 8 pound tome, Tragedy and Hope.)
Where do governments get the enormous amount of money they need? Most of course comes from taxation; but governments often spend more than they are willing to tax from their citizens and so are forced to borrow. Our national (U.S.) debt is now (1974) 455 billion dollars – every cent of it borrowed at interest from somewhere.
The public is led to believe that our government borrows from “the people” through savings bonds. Actually, however, only a small ercentage of the national debt is held by individuals in this form. Most overnment bonds, except those held by the government itself through its trust funds, are held by vast banking firms known as international banks …
… After the panic of 1907, Aldridge was appointed by the Senate to head the National Monetary Commission. Although he had no technical knowledge of banking, Aldridge and his entourage spent nearly two years and $300,000 of the tax-payers’ money being wined and dined by the owners of Europe’s central banks as they toured the Continent ’studying’ central banking. When the Commission returned from its luxuriuos junket it held no meetings and made no report for nearly two years. But Senator Aldrich was busy ‘arranging’ things.Together with Paul Warburg and other international bankers, he staged one of the most important secret meetings in the history of the United States. Rockefeller agent Frank Vanderlip admiited many years later in his memoirs:
“Despite my views about the value to society of greater publicity for the affairs of corporations, there was an occasion, near the close of 1910, when I was as secretive – indeed, as furtive, as any conspirator…I do not feel it is any exaggeration to speak of our secret expedition to Jekyl Island (Georgia) as the occasion of the actual conception of what eventually became the Federal Reserve System.”
