Financial Preparedness Part II-Understanding the Federal Reserve

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 Federal Reserveself-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. Federal ReserveSubsequent 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 Federal Reservethis 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,

Federal Reserve

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.

 So once again, you may be asking why is this important to your preparedness? I have only scratched the surface of this issue in today’s article, but clearly there’s a “stench in Denmark.”  Your only protection from being sorely affected by it is to get out of the world of deception as best as you can.  My two cents is to eliminate ALL of your debt. Run away from credit cards, bank programs, etc. like they are the plague. Stock up on TANGIBLE goods that you can survive on rather than putting your trust in men who run around with aliases and behind closed doors.

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.

Question: Can you elaborate on what you mean by "Stock up on TANGIBLE goods that you can survive on rather than putting your trust in men who run around with aliases and behind closed doors"?

Our currency only has value because we are being told that it does--by the very same kind of men who traveld to Jekyll island with aliases. There is NOTHING to back up the assertion. Even our largest creditor (the Chinese) have lost faith in the value of our currency which is why they are buying up an abundance of gold.
As per my last article, the best way to be prepared for an ultimate financial collapse is to invest in tangible goods which will enable us to survive and thrive without the need of empty currency---water, food, fuel, clothing, shelter, books, land, etc.

One of the things I find myself torn over is paying off debt and buying tangible goods. What is the likely outcome on housing if the dollar collapses? What would be the benefit of foreclosing on every home? Would people let them? It is not realistic for me to have my house paid off, it's going to take decades to do that. So what are you suggesting we do?

Preparedness Pro's picture

My personal plan is to stock up and be moderately prepared (there will ALWAYS be more to do in that area) and then pay off my house. You see, the laws have been so defiled that even when you have paid off your house you still don't own it due to the taxes you have to pay on it again and again. So I do what I DO have control over and then work on the rest. Due to the questionable value of money, financial preparedness is at the bottom of the list of preparedness priorities. It's still a priority, indeed, but towards the end. Personally I will NEVER get another car loan, credit card or any other kind of debt so long as I live-- other than my home. And I'm working to get that straightened out too.

I'm with you on the debt, while we are still paying it down, we have not had any new for years. It just takes awhile.

That's quite a picture there of the Fed spider. And that's just about where they have us----caught in the web.
I think it is important for us to understand these things before we can really understand what an awful situation we are in.

Thank you for all this information.

Great read...excited to see more on this topic!

It really comes done to your top 10 list.
I think your top 6 comes down to attitude.
1. What does it mean to survive?
2. What will I do to survive?
3. How will I survive?
I saw a thing about using silver as a trade good. Relatively cheap compared to gold. It has more applications in a 1st/2nd world economy. You can buy small amounts compared to more industrial metals.
If it's not in your possession, you don't own it.
I believe that food, water and 1st items come first. After that comes trade goods and skills, then anything that you think of value or what other folks think of value.
Heck it maybe lead is considered a trade good or Gun powder. It might be medicines, Skills in building or gardening, quilting or weaving.
No man is an island, Get to know your neighbors now. Use family, you will need them. I know I will, there is no way I can secure my home unless I get help.
I was surprised at the book "Alas Babylon" Folks that lived close to the land "Negroes" were better prepared than the "white folks". It was written in 1959 but poor folks have been doing the stuff for years. It's not about race it's about economic level. Hamburger was cheap, Ribs were cheap,Brisket was cheap. Heck now you find sirloins cheaper than those because of a fad. Well adapt and overcome this nonsense. Sirloins are relatively cheap make jerky. Heck I have found Wild salmon for the same price as ribs.what's up with that?

Thank you for the article, especially the books you listed. I was interested to learn that the Federal Reserve was a private entity! Re the end of the first paragraph: maybe "fearmonger?"

At what point does the American public get angry?

There should be rage and there is nothing.

Preparedness Pro's picture

Rage is self-defeating. It lacks focus and intelligence. A strong warrior keeps fighting diligently (aka by being prepared), educates themselves, and waits for their enemy to make a disasterous mistake, then acts. Focus, Prepare, Wait...

Define the problem. (Always the hardest to to do).
What will you do to fix the problem?
Solution: Now you must implement a solution at your level.
I find myself raging at the situation. But most of folks are simply ignorant not dumb. I can't convince my own family of the need to prepare, and I think most of them like me.
So I do my best, I'll need their help.It's not political it's about survival and thriving. Yes I get all kinds of grief about this, my Mom as well. I hope we are wrong. Gosh I hope we are wrong, But if we are not. Plan for the worst and hope for the best. Americans have shown their anger. The powers that be don't care.
I'll end now because I'll get real political. I'd just ask folks to go to recovery.gov and find out how many congressional districts got money in your state. How many congressmen you get to vote. It seems I only voted for 2 congressmen and we have 36 congressmen getting jobs. Check out watch dog.org

I am a bit afraid right now it seems that the Congressional investigation of the "Fed" may actually happen. Now don't get me wrong I believe that we should know what's happening. But our economy is based on confidence in the dollar. What if there is nothing there for that confidence, and everyone finds out the dollar is a paper lion? I think they have been running a bunch of smoke and mirrors. All countries holding our debts/loans become due because of the creative accounting of our congress.
The US Congress is responsible for the monetary policies of the USA. I really think we are going to see here in America what happened in Argentina, or Brazil.
I'd like some more time to prep before that happens.

Preparedness Pro's picture

IMO, the sooner we reveal the Paper Lion the better. It's like putting off the removal of a cancerous mass. It's got to happen. We know it's there. We should have let AIG and the auto industry fail. We would have been better off now if we had as we would have been further along the way to healing. Now, all we've done is take a placebo and the infection has continued to fester.

It's a bit like a band-aid do you rip it fast. Or do you do it slow and prolong your suffering? I agree we need the "creative destruction" of true capitalism. All we have done is propped the failures. I don't think that's the way to fix the economy. Yeah it will hurt but it would have been over quick. Reagan and the 1987 stock bust. He didn't do anything, and we recovered fast.

Preparedness Pro's picture

I don't believe that there is anything wrong at all with capitalism. I definitely prefer it over other options. But there is everything wrong with deception, thievery, and whoremongering like so many have done through a capitalistic system that's left unchecked.
