“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”
In the early part of the 20th Century this prescient warning came into being. What a great man gave the people as a warning to the people became a really great idea to the evil – yes I do think the financial industry is evil. Usury is clearly defined as a sin in the Bible, many times, but I doubt you’ll find many Christians these days that even knows what usury is.
A modern author decided – out of casual curiosity as far as I know – to take a look the epicenter of this evil, THE FEDERAL RESERVE and what he found prompted him to write an amazing book updated into its 5th edition (don’t know the guy, not getting anything for promoting it but anyone who wants to be proactive about getting this country back on track needs to read it).
The Creature From Jekyll Island so named because the Federal Reserve was conceived & created on this island – interestingly the same island, off the coast of Georgia, where Global anti-Trump meetings are held. Makes sense as the guy has stated he will audit the Federal Reserve.
Most people assume the Federal Reserve is a Government Department IT IS NOT, it is in fact a CARTEL (in the true sense of the word) of all the big banks. They created and maintain the Federal Reserve to regulate: THEMSELVES. Yes, we really have gotten into a cesspool of corruption, its been going on for some time but the 20th Century was its heyday and – possibly – the 21st might be its undoing (we can hope).
The Federal Reserve produces our money, sets interest rates and regulates the banking industry. The Federal Reserve is owned and run by the big banks.
“The Federal Reserve uses open market operations to influence the supply of money in the U.S. economy to make the federal funds effective rate follow the federal funds target rate. The federal funds rate is an important benchmark in financial markets.” Wikipedia
ImpressiveI Insidious, manipulative and an organization that any Bond villain would love to set up. Doesn’t take long to realize why Globalists must be annoyed by the tiny annoying obstacles that get in the way of running the aquarium we all live in – like – us having a minuscule say in things through the ineffective medium of democracy.
Our Elected Government, Congress and the POTUS have lost control of, what is in effect, the blood of our nation. How money flows controls everything else. When you look at this, even a casual glance, you see that…
EXACTLY what Thomas Jefferson warned of, came into being on December 23, 1913. That’s the official date that We The People lost control of America!
Such is the ludicrousness of allowing such a corrupt entity to come into existence merely highlights another ludicrous aspect of our system: allowing men (it’s mostly men) who are almost exclusively Lawyers in search of personal fortune, to form a governing class: The Political Class. They are not only susceptible to corruption, they actively seek it out AND they don’t have to look far.
In Britain an archaic 2nd house of Government filled with hereditary Peers of the Realm still exists: The House of Lords. When it came time to possibly update it the people did not vote to do so. Why? They realized something intriguing – as wealthy aristocracy with an inflated sense of history and duty the members were immune to corruption and on the whole tended to make better decisions than the elected house. Surprising but logical…
Not that I advocate such a thing – in any case, we don’t have an Aristocracy to fill it – however, that we should more carefully define our elected representatives seems entirely obvious.
Suggestion: Political Office must be made a Public Service again. Officials seeking office should receive a modest stipend and expenses which would be regularly audited. If an official is not performing their duties (few turn up to vote) their stipend can be suspended. Additionally, any additional monetary gain must be illegal (exceptions for existing investments, pensions, inheritance etc.). If you don’t want your business to stagnate because you’re busy in Office, or you want to give speeches for $250K a time, or you want to create a charity or organization that will receive donations THEN DON’T RUN FOR OFFICE BECAUSE IT WILL BE ILLEGAL. The self aggrandizing money hungry lawyers will scurry off like rats, seeing no opportunity here. Honorable people from all backgrounds will be able to run – additionally, if candidates can secure the required signatures then a Campaign Fund will be provided by the Taxpayers, it will be modest and exactly the same for EVERY candidate – so spending it wisely & effectively will become a skill, and one we want to encourage.
Imagine if our Political Candidates were men & women, most likely around 50 years +, find themselves in a position to give public service, children grown and most time-consuming parts of careers over, or semiretired. They could still be lawyers, but there would be retired Firefighters/Police Officers, Business People, Ranchers/Farmers… anyone and everyone what was eligible could potentially run!
PEOPLE WHO, HOPEFULLY, WOULD READ THOMAS JEFFERSON AND SEE HOW CORRECT HE WAS, THEN DISMANTLE THE FEDERAL RESERVE AND RECREATE IT UNDER THE CONTROL OF OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS. REIGN IN THE BANKS!
