It is well enough that the people of this 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 whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace in a continual state of alarm (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing them with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. H. L. Mencken
Congress shall have the power to coin money and regulate the value thereof. Article 1 of the U.S. Constitution.
We fix the price of gold and silver to make them valuable or not. J. P. Morgan, in a letter to his son
The Illuminati bankers rule the world through debt, which is money they create out of nothing. They need world government to ensure no country defaults or tries to overthrow them. As long as private bankers, instead of governments, create money the human race is doomed. These bankers and their allies have bought everything and everyone. Henry Makow
It (the Great Depression) was not accidental, it was a carefully contrived occurrence. The international Bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so that they might emerge as rulers of us all. Louis McFadden
The Federal Reserve caused the Great Depression by contracting the amount of currency in circulation by one third from 1929 to 1933. Milton Friedman
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 the money and its issuance. President James Madison
If the people were to ever find out what we have done, we would be chased down the streets and lynched. George H. W. Bush told a White House reporter.
The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. By the adoption of these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity. Abraham Lincoln
The course of history shows as a government grows, liberty decreases. President Thomas Jefferson
We have been communized in that: production in relation to consumption must be ruthlessly regulated or . . . the fraud upon the public, perpetuated by bank credit, will be revealed. American's Bulletin
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. President Thomas Jefferson
I would never have agreed to the formulation of the Central Intelligence Agency back in '47, if I had known it would become the American Gestapo. Harry S. Truman (1961)
The standard of living of the average American has to decline . . . I don't think you can escape that. Paul Volcker, former Federal Reserve Chairman
Very soon every American will be required to register their biological property in a national system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging. By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will affect our security as a charge back for our fiat paper currency.
Every American will be forced to register or suffer being able to work and earn a living. They will be our chattels (property) and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions. Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading (Birth Certificate) to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, secured by their pledges.
They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans and, if by accident one or two should figure it out, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability. After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debts to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges.
This will inevitably reap us huge profit beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor to this fraud, which we will call 'Social Insurance'. Without realising it, every American will unknowingly be our servant, however begrudgingly. The people will become helpless and without any hope for their redemption and we will employ the high office (presidency) of our dummy corporation (USA) to foment this plot against America. Colonel Edward Mandel House
The great mass of people . . . will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one. What luck for rulers that men do not think. Adolf Hitler
The man who never looks into a newspaper is better informed than he who reads them; in as much as he who knows nothing is nearer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors. It is a melancholy truth that a suppression of the press could not more completely deprive the nation of its benefits than is done by its abandoned prostitution to falsehood. T. Jefferson
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property, until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. Thomas Jefferson.
When you control opinion, as corporate America controls opinion in the United States by owning the media, you can make the (many) believe almost anything you want, and you can guide them. Gore Vidal from 'The Golden Age'.
Democracy is indispensable to Socialism. V. I. Lenin
The surest way to overthrow an existing social order is to debauch the currency. Lenin
Socialism leads to Communism. Karl Marx
There are two methods, or means and only two, whereby man's needs and desires can be satisfied. One is the production and exchange of wealth; this is the economic means. The other is the uncompensated appropriation of wealth produced by others; this is the political means. Albert Jay Nock
Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russian, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament , or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All I have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country. Goering at the Nuremberg Trials
Banks create credit. It is a mistake to suppose that bank credit is created to any extent by the payment of money into the banks. A loan made by a bank is a clear addition to the amount of money in the community. Encyclopaedia Britannica, 14th Edition
The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the People vs. The Banks. Lord Acton, Lord Chief Justice of England, 1875
Our goal is gradually to absorb the wealth of the world. Cecil Rhodes, on the secret banking cabal
I am afraid that ordinary citizens will not like to be told that the banks can, and do, create and destroy money; and they who control the credit of the nation direct the policy of governments and hold in the hollow of their hands the destiny of the people. R. McKenna, then Chairman of Midland Bank, London
There is no more direct way to capture control of a nation than through its credit (money) system Mr. Phillip A. Benson, President of the American Bankers' Association, 1939
This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world. By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished. Sir Denison Miller
We are now permitted to own gold again only because the intention is to force the Can/Am people onto a strict gold standard while we have no gold which will permit this system to operate even marginally. Forcing us onto a gold standard, under the guise of our 'proven' inability to manage debt, will complete the destruction of the middle class and finish our subjection to the International Bankers and the UN. Howard Freeman.
In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value. If there were, the government would have to make its holding illegal, as was done in the case of gold . .. The financial policy of the welfare state requires that there be no way for the owners of wealth to protect themselves. This is the shabby secret of the welfare statists' tirades against gold. Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the 'hidden' confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights. Alan Greenspan, Gold and Economic Freedom
The US will bring in the New World Order and its seat will be England. Governor Cornwallis (200 years ago)
. . . Debts must be collected mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When through the process of law the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. . . . It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished. 1924 U.S. Banker's Association Magazine
The financial system has been turned over to the Federal Reserve Board. That board administers a finance system by authority of a purely profiteering group. That system is private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people's money. This (Federal Reserve) Act establishes the most gigantic trust on Earth. When the president signs this bill, the invisible governments by the monetary power will be legalized. The people may not know it immediately but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed, the worst legislatives crime of the ages perpetrated by this banking bill. Charles A. Lindbergh, Representative, MN
I have unwittingly ruined my country. President Wilson, upon passage of the Federal Reserve Act, 1913
Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troups entered Los Angeles to restore order [referring to the 1991 LA Riot]. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond [i.e., an "extraterrestrial" invasion], whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government. Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France, 1991
Every effort has been made by the Federal Reserve Board to conceal its powers, but the truth is . . . the Fed (Federal Reserve System) has usurped the government. It controls everything here (congress) and it controls all our foreign relations. It makes and breaks governments at will. Louis McFadden, ex-Chairman of the House Committee on Banking and Currency
A few who can understand the system (check money and credits) will either be so interested in it's profits, or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear it's burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests. Rothschild, London
All the property of this country now belongs to the state and will be used for the good of the state. FDR, 1933
It may appear that what goes on is happenstance, but the gov't most surely has planned it. FDR
The actual process of money creation takes place primarily in banks . . . bankers discovered that they could make loans merely by giving their promise to pay, or bank notes, to borrowers. In this way banks began to create money. Transaction deposits are the modern counterpart of bank notes. It was a small step from printing notes to making book entries crediting deposits of borrowers, which the borrowers in turn could 'spend' by writing checks, thereby 'printing' their own money. Modern Money Mechanics, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, so what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. They pull the strings and we dance. John Swinton, former chief of staff for the New York Times, in an address to fellow journalists.
When you control opinion, as corporate America controls opinion in the United States by owning the media, you can make the [many] believe almost anything you want, and you can guide them. Gore Vidal
From the days of Wieshaupt, Karl Marx, Trotski, Belacoon, Rosa Luxenberg, and Ema Goldman, this world conspiracy has been steadily growing . . . . It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th Century . . . Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of England--the London Press, 1922.
When the people fear the government, there is Tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is Liberty. Thomas Jefferson
Peace can never be achieved by force. It can only be achieved by understanding. Albert Einstein
If you wanna keep the peace, you gotta have the authorization to use force. George W. Bush
Our mind is of three categories: what we know, what we don't know, and what we don't know we don't know. Not knowing is unfortunate; not knowing that we don't know is tragic. W. Erhart.
There are no problems apart from the mind. Krishnamurti
I regard consciousness as primary . . . I regard matter as a derivative of consciousness. M. Planck (one of the founders of quantum physics)
The ultimate ignorance is the rejection of something you know nothing about and refuse to investigate. Dr. Wayne Dyer.
Each progressive spirit is opposed by a thousand mediocre minds appointed to guard the past. Maurice Maeterlinck.
If you want to make someone angry tell him a lie; if you want to make him furious, tell him the truth. All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed , second it is violently opposed, and third it is accepted as self-evident. Arthur Schopenhauer, Philosopher, 1788-1860
The next revolution in physics will occur when the properties of mind will be included in the equations of quantum physics. Eugene Wigner (Nobel Laureate in physics)
Just as in classical mechanics there is no natural place for consciousness, so in quantum mechanics there is no natural place for matter. Physicist Stapp
The stuff of the world is mind-stuff. Eddington
In the 1890's the head of the US Patent Office said:
should shut the Patent Office down because everything that will be
invented has been invented.
What you can't imagine, you can't discover. Albert Einstein
Imagination is more important than knowledge. Einstein
Reality is an illusion, albeit a very persistent one. Einstein
