Our last post, “It Is Now Mathematically Impossible To Pay Off The U.S. National Debt“, has created a ton of controversy and has generated over 100 comments so far.  Much of the discussion has been about the role of the Federal Reserve and how they create money and debt.  The truth is that the Federal Reserve system is a very complex subject that is very difficult to get a handle on.  One thing that the Federal Reserve is NOT is a government agency.  In fact, it is about as “federal” as Federal Express.  It is a private central bank designed to make money for the people who created it.  In fact, the Federal Reserve was the culmination of an effort by the international banking elite to force a permanent private central bank on the American people that began all the way back during the days of our Founding Fathers. 

But don’t just take our word for it. The following are famous quotes about the Federal Reserve and central banking from past presidents, congressmen and other notable historical figures….  

“Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders. The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates outside the control of Congress and manipulates the credit of the United States.”
-Sen. Barry Goldwater

It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”
-Henry Ford

“The regional Federal Reserve banks are not government agencies. …but are independent, privately owned and locally controlled corporations.”
-Lewis vs. United States, 680 F. 2d 1239 9th Circuit 1982

“The Federal Reserve banks are one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever seen. There is not a man within the sound of my voice who does not know that this nation is run by the International bankers.”
-Congressman Louis T. McFadden

“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson.”
-Franklin Delano Roosevelt

“As soon as Mr. Roosevelt took office, the Federal Reserve began to buy government securities at the rate of ten million dollars a week for 10 weeks, and created one hundred million dollars in new [checkbook] currency, which alleviated the critical famine of money and credit, and the factories started hiring people again.”
-Eustace Mullins

“This [Federal Reserve Act] establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President [Wilson} signs this bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be legalized….the worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill.”
-Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr. , 1913

“When you or I write a check there must be sufficient funds in our account to cover the check, but when the Federal Reserve writes a check there is no bank deposit on which that check is drawn. When the Federal Reserve writes a check, it is creating money.”
-Putting it simply, Boston Federal Reserve Bank

“We have, in this country, one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board. This evil institution has impoverished the people of the United States and has practically bankrupted our government. It has done this through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.”
-Congressman Louis T. McFadden in 1932

“The few who understand the system, will either be so interested from it’s profits or so dependent on it’s favors, that there will be no opposition from that class.”
-Rothschild Brothers of London, 1863

“While boasting of our noble deeds were careful to conceal the ugly fact that by an iniquitous money system we have nationalized a system of oppression which, though more refined, is not less cruel than the old system of chattel slavery.”
-Horace Greeley

“The Federal Reserve bank buys government bonds without one penny…”
-Congressman Wright Patman, Congressional Record, Sept 30, 1941

“…the increase in the assets of the Federal Reserve banks from 143 million dollars in 1913 to 45 billion dollars in 1949 went directly to the private stockholders of the [federal reserve] banks.”
-Eustace Mullins

“The financial system has been turned over to the Federal Reserve Board. That Board administers the finance system by authority of a purely profiteering group. The system is Private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people’s money”
-Charles A. Lindbergh Sr., 1923

“Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money and control credit, and with a flick of a pen they will create enough to buy it back.”
-Sir Josiah Stamp, former President, Bank of England

“All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects in their Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation.”
-John Adams

“Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce.”
-James A. Garfield, President of the United States

“A great industrial nation is controlled by it’s system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the world–no longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men.”
-President Woodrow Wilson

“History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and it’s issuance.”
-James Madison

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power (of money) should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs.”
-Thomas Jefferson

“The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, and more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces as public enemies all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe.”
-Abraham Lincoln

“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes it’s laws”
-Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild

Are you starting to get the picture?

The Federal Reserve is at the center of a controversy over central banking that has been around since the very beginning of the United States.  But unfortunately, the Federal Reserve system is so incredibly complex and the American people of today are so uneducated that the vast majority of people out there simply do not even understand enough about what is going on to get upset about anything.

But that is changing.  An increasing number of people are starting to wake up.  Instead of thinking that “we’ll get this debt under control if we could just get the right person in the White House”, more Americans than ever are realizing that it is the Federal Reserve that is the root of our debt problem.

    I’ve been a student of American History though
    coin collecting for 50 years. The Constitution
    didn’t only ordain only Gold,Silver,Copper could be coined,but implemented an egalitarian
    system opf weights & measures to guarantee an ample money supply for all 3 classes. 4,000 quater sized half cents = $20. in Gold. That system held from 1792 through 1855, until the Mint made a radical abandonment. Small nickle
    cents were minted from 1856-1858. Then Copper
    cents returned with the same thickness, but at
    the same size as today. I sense a rich cabal unduely influenced the Treasury to create an imbalance which gave them leverage to exploit
    the lower class. And shift the middle class wealth into their pockets also. By 1896 people
    were screaming for fiat “money” because bullion coins were hoarded by banks, and made too valuable. By 1907, a Bank Panic occurred.
    So that by 1913, the banksters’ “Fed” Trojan Horse was deposited as the enemy at the gates.
    Without an FDIC, and an SEC to immunize people, it was easy for inside traders to manipulate the 1020 Stock Market Crash, and export 40% of the USA’s Gold to French and Swiss banks owned by the Rothchilds et al owners of the “Fed”. From there it was all a long slide down the slippery slope. It took only 20 years for the banksters to eat the Treasury, and replace our U.S.Notes to their
    FRS toilet paper worth only $0.02 of a Gold
    backed dollar because we’re still paying for
    financing WW1, and WW2. The “Fed” is the Rothchild’s idea of a “business development
    company”. Have you seen the 2007 D Ameros which the US had to export to China’s banks to
    pay $800 Billion owned on the national debt ?
    It’s on U Tube.

    The Pharisees in Christ’s day were no more than the religious cronies for the real power brokers, the money changers in the temple. They were the “Federal Reserve” of their day. Jesus went about doing good: Healing the sick, delivering the demonized, forgiving sinners. He even tolerated the Pharisees, answering their idiotic questions. But what was the gentle Lamb of God’s action when confronting the money changers? A whip! He drove them out. He saved this action until He had come to the end of His ministry. They were and are His true enemies. Four days later He hung on a cross. One more time He will drive them out. This time they will stay out.

  • Stability of any social system depends on stability and legitimacy of its elite. With all the talk about democracy and Obama bringing “change”, the world’s elite remains to be financial elite of Wall Street, – simply because now the bankers take 50% of all corporate profits.

    Having said this, – it is clear that the elite cannot “deliver” anymore, – so that everyone else gets a “cut” from the “pie”. The question is now: how will take over after the financial elite is deposited?

    The federal reserve are scum
    It is in the constitutuion for congress to coin its money
    An audit is not enough it needs to be ended full stop
    why can they not just do this?
    The constitution says you can bypass them so why not do it

    The FED should be disbanded in its current structure however the politicians will not adhere as they can be bought by those who own the FED. The FED is a government within the government. The bankers have hi-jacked the governments and feel they should rule.

    While there has been a cry for the return to “the gold standard”, considering that Basel Bank in Switzerland is holding the lion’s share of our gold (it is no longer in Ft. Knox), it would be unwise to do so. Gold is too rare, and as such much more easily controlled and monopolized by the very few and very powerful.

    If we return to any standard at all, it should be Silver and Copper, both of which are far more plentiful in this country, and not easily monoplizable by the banksters.

    In the end, all money is, is what we the people agree on that has value. Fiat currency, or currency that is decreed by government fiat to have value can work, as long as it is not controlled by private individuals. Such money must be created out of pure value, with no interest attached to it.

    A simple amendment to the constitution, outlawing the “creation of money through debt” will solve this problem completely. It will take away any motivation for any private entity to try and control our nations money. After that, through careful taxation vs. creation, the government can regulate the number of dollars per capita so as to prevent either depression/recession and inflation.

    Whether the government uses fiat currency or metals to achieve this end is irrelevant, so long as the supply of money is regulated against population, periods of inflation and recession will virtually disappear.

    This is economics 101, and is basic. All else will stem from these princiles.

    I support the ending of the Federal Reserve, and its regional subsidiarys, in support of monetary reform and control by “We the People”.

    Dr. James Bradley.

  • Nice quote

    I am currently reading “The Creature From Jekyll Island” by G. Edward Griffin. His book is the definitive expose on the Federal Reserve although I am under the impression that his research is based heavily upon the earlier writings and research of Eustace Mullins. I am truly amazed at how important historical events have unfolded in history due to the influence of monetary policy and central banking. I hope and pray that the American people will someday awaken spiritually and financially to the reality of this evil fraud. We need to audit the accounts of the Fed, and ultimately abolish its charter. When I look at the reality of our latest economic recession, I can’t help but be reminded of the famous quotes of Pres. Jefferson warning us of the dangers of yielding control of our monetary system to private bankers. Everything he predicted over two hundred years ago has come to pass. Fortunately, many Americans are beginning to wake up to the evils of the private banking cartel. We largely have Ron Paul, Glenn Beck, and the libertarians and conspiracy theorists to thank for that. I wish them well in their endeavors to wake the rest of the country up.
