One bank to rule them all

We live in a sham democracy. The real power is with the Federal Reserve and it’s crony banks. Since 1913, the sovereignty of the United States has steadily eroded as globalist banks and multinational corporations steadily sucked power and wealth out of the republic.

Banking magnate Baron M.A. Rothschild said, “Give me control over a nations currency, and I care not who makes its laws.” As you may have noticed, it doesn’t matter if the Democrats or Republicans hold office. That’s because the real power lies with the banks, notably the Federal Reserve, and its evil spawn, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

Grayson, Paul, and Kucinich seem to be on to this scam (at least they still get to ask questions), but the powers-that-be successfully muzzle and marginalize them.  These are brave fellows: a tide of corruption, lies, propaganda, and money, money, money constantly floods over their efforts.

Our founding fathers warned of just this state of affairs. Thomas Jefferson reportedly said, “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.” Jefferson’s sentiments must ring particular true to those who’ve been forced from their homes by the big banks.

I fear the future of America is no longer in the people’s hands. Claim to the future is the exclusive domain of the banks, the multi-national corporations, and the military.  They’ve created such a fog of propaganda that “we the people” can’t purge the rot because we can’t see where it’s coming from.

They siphon off your tax dollars through bailouts. They run a fiat-money Ponzi scheme. They debase your currency through quantitative easing.  They rig the markets through POMO, HFT, and outright fraud.

Wall Street is Mordor.  The Federal Reserve is Mount Doom. Bernanke wears the ring of power. One bank to rule them all!

The Bank owns your debt, your money, your pension, your labor, your taxes, your government…your life.

It owns you.

  1. Half of my money is in my bank and the other half is in my investment accounts…

    The US has gotten pretty wealthy over the century, just saying.

    The crony banksters and political elites – yes. Your average American – no.

    A dollar is worth literally “pennies on the dollar” if you compare 2010 to 1913 purchasing power.

    I would agree the U.S.A increased in real wealth terms from say post WWII to 1971 or so, since then it’s been a slide. I think if you look at the real rate of return on the Dow compared to gold or the dollar adjusted for inflation, you really haven’t done that well.

    The American middle class is disappearing. We live in time of unprecedented wealth confiscation. It used to be a man could work hard and take care of his family and retire on an interest bearing account. Now a second spouse must work just to pay off the taxes. Additionally, with non-existent saving rates, you have to put your money at risk in “the market” if you hope to beat inflation. You could lose it all however if the market crashes again. The banks get bailed out. The tax-payer get crushed.

    I think if you look at what’s really happening to middle-class families on “main-street”, the 21st Century has been one of decline, at least so far.

      Thanks for commenting. I have to emphasize that I’m not a financial adviser, however. I write for educational purposes only.

    I think we are of one mind…I love your blog. I actually went looking for the T. Jefferson quote about banking just a few weeks ago…fun to see you have used it too. You have spent a lot of time demonstrating how “The Club” owns the Executive and Legislative branches of government. Any substantiation of buying up the Judiciary too? Hard to feel like they haven’t after Citizens United v. FEC. (see Let me know if you know anything about how this would be possible or documented.
    I think Campaign Finance Reform may become my litmus test for this election…now to figure out where to hide my money.

      Ron Paul has been trying to get an audit of the Federal Reserve for years…to no avail. His bill can’t get any traction in Congress. Why? The banking lobby tells “our representatives” to keep it off the docket.

      The Supreme Court will have a chance to hold the Federal Reserve’s “feet to the fire” in an upcoming case, however: (If they agree to here it that is.) Pittman/Bloomberg vs. the Federal Reserve

      My guess is that if the Supreme Court hears this case, it will rule in favor of the Federal Reserve and cite concerns about “national security” or the “necessary independence of the Federal Reserve” blah. blah, blah… and the people will get hosed. If they rule against the Federal Reserve and make them tell us what they’ve done with taxpayer money (novel concept I know) we may have some hope.

      Jefferson feared the Judiciary branch had become too powerful back in 1821: “The germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body (for impeachment is scarcely a scare-crow) working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped.” (Letter to Charles Hammond, August 18, 1821)

      All of this fuss however is like chaff in the whirlwind, however. There is an oligarchy running the U.S. I have no doubt if Jefferson were to witness how the American “system” has devolved to it’s present state, he’d have no qualms labeling it for what it is: tyranny.
