The Federal Reserve: The Conspiracy Players
Why is it important for you to really understand the Federal Reserve System in order to be better prepared financially? Well, it’s like I tell my firearm self-defense students—to be forewarned is to be prepared. I keep saying in my articles that the financial collapse is the disaster that is most likely to occur in our nation, and relatively soon. When I say that, it’s not with any intent to be a fearmonger. Rather it’s based upon my 15 years in the finance industry and understanding how money really works and how it is supposed to work.
Before I go on, I know that there will be a handful of you that will ask me for sources and such. Usually a person who asks for such info is really just looking for an internet link. However, I don’t spend my days reading what others have posted on the internet for my info as a lot of it is simply unverifiable. Understand that a lot of my info comes from actually being a part of the trenches for 15 years. I also got a lot of information from studying appropriate books such as “The Naked Communist” by W. Cleon Skousen, “Hiding in Plain Sight” by Ken Bowers, “The Creature from Jekyll Island” by G. Edward Griffin, “Secret Combinations Today” by Representative Louis McFadden, and “The Rich and the Super Rich” by Ferdinand Lundberg. I also have studied excerpts from old “Washington Post” and “New York Times” articles dating back as far as 1913. Also helpful in understanding this topic was conducting an in-depth study of the founding fathers and their specific concerns with the money system in our nation.
When you initially see a magician pull a rabbit out of his hat, it’s amazing. Subsequent tricks of this same nature don’t quite capture your attention the same way. But if you realized later that he did the trick at the demise of a cute little bunny rabbit, then not only would you not be impressed with the trick, but you’d be a bit ticked off. Well, this is what is about to happen when you understand the Federal Reserve System.
To be clear, the Federal Reserve System is NOT government run (in fact, it now has the influence to RUN our government—more on that later). It never has been and it never will be. It is a PRIVATE, stock owned, lending institution and most of the stockholders are NOT Americans—not even on paper. The name “federal” was chosen specifically to be deceptive and to entice the American people into accepting it. It is the ultimate evidence that our nation’s economy is run by private bankers, not elected government officials. Additionally, there is nothing “Reserve” about the Fed. They have never had anything tangible backing up the issuance of currency, and they never will. Again, it’s simply another creative word usage used by conspirators to deceive the American people. In fact, the Federal Reserve is well beyond any demands of the voters. It’s even beyond the Congress.
While the Congress supposedly has the authority to audit the Federal Reserve, it has NEVER happened. The Federal Reserve will not allow itself to be audited. Their books have never been opened, their shareholders are all private, there is no accounting of where their money goes, how much is produced, and even their “public” meetings are closed to the public and government. In fact, they elected several years ago to even cease reporting on how much currency is in circulation at any given time.
Federal Reserve Deception
The deception of the Federal Reserve System began in 1910 at a meeting at the Georgia State Park on Jekyll Island. Fitting name, actually. This location was a private hunting club/winter resort. The participants who met in this meeting represented the worlds richest individuals and organizations—in fact one fourth of the entire world’s wealth! Not one of them was an elected official. They were all private individuals. They were actually competitors with each other in the world of finance. However, they all had a common enemy—freedom. At the time of their meeting, freedom was flourishing and the establishment of many local banks resulted throughout the country.
This monetary independence was shifting the control away from these wealthy, power hungry individuals. Freedom also made it so that the economy was still based on the gold standard. Considering that this group all had experienced the satiating taste of making something out of nothing through usury and interest, the gold standard actually threatened to impede their financial progress. Profits from the banks and the gold standard were used to expand the wealth and prosperity of this nation. These financiers recognized that if the United States was permitted to continue to prosper in this honest and ethical manner, then duplicate their template of success in other countries, it would actually threatened to destroy all of the criminal rackets these men had established elsewhere. So a meeting was called. These men all traveled under aliases and some even in disguise to the appointed place on Jekyll Island. They even addressed each other by their alias names—yup, real cloak and dagger kind of stuff. Present at this meeting were the following:
Federal Reserve Players
- Nelson Aldrich, the Chairman of National Monetary Commission. He was in charge of recommending to Congress any persons who would be good advisers on banking reform.
- Abraham Andrew, the Assistant Secretary of the United States Treasury
- Hendry Davidson, the senior partner of the J.P. Morgan Company
- Charles D. Norton, President of J.P Morgan’s First National Bank of New York
- Benjamin Strong, the head of J.P. Morgan’s Banker’s Trust Company. (He was later named as the chairman of the Federal Reserve Board)
- Frank A. Vanderlip, the President of National City Bank of New York. This bank was the most powerful bank in the world at this time. Vanderlip was also the spokesman for William Rockefeller and for the international investment banking house of Kuhn, Loeb & Company.
- Paul M. Warburg, partner in Kuhn, Loeb & Company. He was also a representative of the Rothschild banking dynasty in England and France. As if that wasn’t enough, he was also the brother of Max Warburg who was the head of the Warburg banking consortium in Germany and the Netherlands.
These men were not interested in prosperity as the result of an abundance of goods and services. These men were literally addicted to making wealth as the result of the incurrence of debt. As a result, they wanted to form a central type of bank and essentially establish themselves as the “go-to source” for countries, cities, etc. to borrow money. They would then in turn lend far more money than could ever be paid back. As a result, the borrower would either have to go bankrupt—not a good choice when you’re a nation,
or they would receive “leniency” on their debts in exchange for the Federal Reserve to influence political, social, and economic policies. It is because of this status of influence that our country is run more by those who hold our debt rather than the virtues and people that truly make up this nation.
In the next article I will discuss more about how currency is manipulated to earn something out of nothing and what you need to do about it.
