“The Love of Money is the Root of ALL Evil”
1 Timothy 6:10
And the Source of ALL Wars!
by Lorraine Day, M.D.
Usury is the Cause of ALL Wars, because ALL wars are Bankers’ Wars. Virtually NO Christian understands this very important concept.
What is the definition of Usury?
The present-day dictionary defines Usury in the following way:
“The illegal action or practice of lending money at unreasonably high rates of interest.”
But God’s definition of Usury is very different. God says that lending money at ANY rate of interest - - - is Usury!
There are many texts in the Bible regarding Usury, so it is a very important concept to the Lord and He wants us to fully understand it.
Who will abide in God’s tabernacle? Those who do not participate in Usury!
“Lord, Who shall abide in Thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell in Thy holy hill?
“He that walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart.
“He that does not backbite with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor
“In whose eyes a vile person is condemned; but he honors them that fear the Lord. He that swears to his own hurt, and changes not.
“He that puts not out his money to usury, nor takes reward against the innocent. He that does these things shall never be moved.” Psalm 15:5
Texts showing that one must not lend with usury to a “brother.”
“If thou lend money to any of my people that are poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as an usurer neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.” Ex 22:25
“Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God that thy brother may live with thee.” Lev 25:36
“Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury nor lend him thy victuals for increase.” Lev 25:37
“Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of anything that is lent upon usury.” Deut 23:19
“Then I consulted with myself, and I rebuked the nobles, and the rulers, and said unto them, Ye exact usury, everyone of his brother. And I set a great assembly against them.” Neh 5:7
“I likewise, and my brethren, and my servants, might exact of them money and corn: I pray you, let us leave off this usury.” Neh 5:10
“He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.” Prov 28:8
“And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.” Isa 24:2
Woe is me, my mother, that thou hast borne me a man of strife and a man of contention to the whole earth! I have neither lent on usury, nor men have lent to me on usury; yet everyone of them doth curse me.” Jer 15:10
“He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man.” Eze 18:8
“That hath taken off his hand from the poor, that hath not received usury nor increase shall he then live? He shall not live; he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him.” Eze 18:13
“That hath taken off his hand from the poor, that hath not received usury nor increase, hath executed my judgments, hath walked in my statutes; he shall not die for the iniquity of his father, he shall surely live.” Eze 18:17
“In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury and increase, and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbors by extortion, and hast forgotten me, saith the Lord God.” Eze 22:12
Is it forbidden to lend to a stranger with usury?
“Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it.” Deut 23:20
But the Old Testament (literal) must be interpreted through the New Testament (Spiritual). The Old Testament looked forward to the coming of Christ the Messiah. Jesus said, “The Old Testament is about - - - ME - - NOT Israel.”
“You search the Scriptures because in them you think you have eternal (eonian) life (the life of Christ in you), but they (the Scriptures) are they which testify of ME.” John 5:39
The ONLY “Scriptures” Jesus could have been referring to were the Old Testament Scriptures, because the New Testament hadn’t been written yet. Jesus was telling the disciples and the people that the Old Testament Scriptures were about HIM, not Israel.
When Jesus Christ came to earth, then the Old Testament had to be interpreted through HIS life, and just whom did Jesus say is our “neighbor”?
The parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:30-37 was told by Jesus in response to an expert in the laws of the Pharisees asking the question, “Who is my neighbor?” after Jesus said had said, “Love thy neighbor as thyself.”
At the end of the Parable, Jesus asked this “expert” “Which now of these three do you think was a neighbor unto him that fell among thieves” (the priest who passed on the other side, the Levite who passed on the other side, or the Samaritan from a group that was hated by the Israelites - who showed mercy and helped the man who was beaten and robbed by thieves)?
The “expert” responded appropriately, “He that showed mercy on him.” Then Jesus said unto him, “Go and do thou likewise.” Luke 10:37
Jesus was pointing out that even a stranger is our “neighbor.”
What about Jesus’ own words regarding usury in His parables?
“Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming should have received mine own with usury.” Matt 25:27
“Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury.” Luke 19:23
A person who does not understand spiritual things would interpret these two texts with “sense” knowledge. But Jesus wasn’t referring to actual money, He was referring to our sharing the Good News of the Gospel with others. The Israelites felt they were “special” the “Chosen of God.” They were given the commission to take the truth of God to all the nations. But instead, they kept the information for themselves and refused to have anything to do with the Unbelievers incorrectly translated “Gentiles” in the Bible.
The Israelites “hid their message under a bushel basket” (Matt 5:15) keeping it for themselves. They were so antagonistic to those whom they considered “lower than animals” the “Gentiles” (goyim) that they performed ceremonial washings before every meal, washing themselves up to their elbows because, just perhaps, they may have “touched” a “Gentile” in the market place.
That’s why the Pharisees asked Jesus why His disciples “didn’t wash their hands before eating.” (Mark, Chapter 7) They were speaking of “ceremonial washing” to rid themselves from being defiled by having touched a “Gentile.”
This is yet further evidence of the Israelites perverted understanding of Jesus and His Word the teaching of Jesus that everyone is equal in His sight.
Unfortunately, the Christian churches of today are suffering from the same ignorance believing they’re “saved” because they are IN the church. And all those Unbelievers (the actual meaning of the word “Gentiles” or nations those who “know not God” 1 Thess 4:5) who are OUTSIDE the “church” will be lost, and will burn in Hell (a word that is not even found in the Original Scriptures of the Bible).
The only way anyone can properly understand the Word of God is to move away from “sense” knowledge (meaning just the use of our senses: what we see, hear, taste, touch and smell) and mature in Christ so we can understand God’s Word with Spiritual Understanding. This requires that Jesus put in our heart HIS disposition and character.
“The natural man (literal: “soulish” man one who only understands with his five senses) cannot receive the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them, because they (Spiritual things) are spiritually discerned (understood).” 1 Cor 2:14
As Jesus said, Everyone is our “neighbor.”
Usury in the Catholic Church
Depraved Economics Breeds Depraved Morals
Contemporary ‘Conservatives’ seldom make the connection between a depraved economic system and depravity of morals among a passively consumptive, dehumanized populace possessed of disposable income and unlimited wants. These “Conservatives” view Communist economics as a great evil, but never the Capitalist. But as Wendell Berry observes:
‘Communism and free market Capitalism both are modern versions of oligarchy…The fraudulence of these oligarchic forms of economy is in their principle of displacing whatever goods they recognize (as well as their debts) from the present to the future…Communists and Capitalists alike have needed to replace genuine religious faith with some form of determinism, so they can say to their victims… ‘It’s inevitable.’
‘Predatory Capitalism hides the destruction it wreaks through a process of false accounting, substituting for the real economy of creative labor and natural production, the symbolic economy of money ‘which cannot symbolize or account for anything but itself.’ And so we have before us the spectacle of unprecedented ‘prosperity’ and ‘economic growth’ in a land of degraded farms, failing families and perishing communities.’ Michael Hoffman, Usury in Christendom, pp 290-291.
The BIG Stores
Walmart, a ‘Goliath’ seeks to devour all the mom and pop small businesses that are the foundation of the American economy. Walmart’s loyal customer base includes pastors and patriots who laud this greedy giant as “the American Way” while it destroys the very fabric of our once Christian society.
In Germany in the 1930’s, the influx of the BIG stores, equivalent to present-day Walmart, Target, Sam’s Club, K Mart, etc., virtually all owned by Jews both then and now, were forcing the mom and pop stores out of business, just as they have done in America. In addition, the Jews had essentially taken over the government of Germany, infiltrating every department in the administration. During the four-year period before the rise of Adolf Hitler, the president and administration of Germany had changed 23 times. Why? Not only were they corrupt, but the masses of Communist Jews who had virtually taken over Germany sabotaged every elected Government.
Essentially, the entire population of Germans in Germany had been enslaved by their “captors” - the Jews - in an “open air” prison.
The very same thing has happened to America.
“Christian” Capitalism vs Communism
‘In many ways, ‘Christian’ Capitalism is far more hypocritical than Communism, for the Communists did not blasphemously invoke God as a cover for their crimes, yet somehow ‘Conservatives’ in America feel impelled to drag God into their dog-eat-dog corporate system and invoke His mantle as justification for the unbridled money-worship that is turning towns once full of neighborhoods, into suburbs crammed with soulless housing developments, ripping communities that are indispensable to the spiritual well-being of a nation to pieces, and creating the symptoms of rootlessness and alienation which manifests in our young people as drug addiction, suicide, squalor and perversion, and in our elderly as extraordinary isolation and loneliness. The soul of Americans is being rotted by this system…
‘Loyalty to one’s home-place, the obligation to protect the neighborhood and the community as a locus of ennobling and humanizing values and folkways worthy in themselves, apart from any immediate gain on the profit-ledger, is derided by the globalists as ‘protectionism,’ as if the preservation of the neighborhood where the Christ-centered practice of neighborliness is made possible, is some kind of sinful subversion.
As Wendell Berry, an American novelist and environmental activist, notes, ‘A corporation, essentially, is a pile of money to which a number of persons have sold their moral allegiance. Unlike a person, a corporation does not age…it does not come to see the future as the lifetime of the children and grandchildren of anybody in particular. It goes about its business with the single purpose of becoming a bigger pile of money. The stockholders are essentially usurers, people who ‘let their money work for them,’ expecting high pay in return for causing others to work for low pay. The World Trade Organization enlarges the old idea of the corporation-as-person by giving the global corporate economy the status of a super-government with the power to overrule nations. I don’t mean to say, of course, that all corporate executives and stockholders are bad people. I am only saying that all of them are very seriously implicated in a bad economy.” Wendell Berry, Citizenship Papers,
Unfortunately, denominations and individual churches have been “infected” with this same mentality bigger is better. Even to the point of wanting to “do great things for God.” It is much easier to “work for God” than it is “to be one with God” to allow God to work through us, even when we may not know exactly how He is doing that.
America was founded on Agrarianism, the family farm, where each family produced their own food, their own clothing from the wool from their own sheep, their own house and their own heating from the wood from their own trees. They were quite self-sufficient. That is how God designed it.
It should be noted that the first city was built by a murderer, Cain, who had just killed his brother Abel because of jealousy. Even though God told Cain He would protect him after his terrible sin, Cain did not trust God and chose to provide his own safety by building a walled city for his own protection.
This was a major departure from God’s chosen path for humanity. Fortunately, the agrarian life still flourished for thousands of years, even though there was a significant increase in the population of cities, again, mainly for fortification from the enemy by people who did not trust God.
God endorsed life on the farm because of its constant reminder that everything comes from God. Good soil and the right amount of rain are both necessary for a plentiful harvest. They both come from God. Everything in this type of life is meant to keep our mind focused on God.
Farming in America in the 20th Century
“In 1900 more than half 54 percent of Americans lived in places where the population was less than 1,000. Another ten percent lived in towns of one to four thousand people and only 36 percent in urbanized areas of five thousand or more. Even in the great age of industrial capitalism, nearly two of every three Americans spent most of their days in towns and villages or on farms with fewer than five thousand residents.
“What is striking about these numbers is two things: first, the small size of the model American residence and how sharply this differs from our own time. Second is the surprising scarcity of what might be called the middle-sized American town the place with 1,000-5,000 residents. America was less a land of moderate-size towns than one divided between very small communities and distinctly urban place.” Michael B. Katz, Rural and Regional Diversity in Early Twentieth-Century America; America At the Millennium Project, Working Paper # 1 May, 2001
Farming in America in the 21st Century
“An entire way of life is rapidly dying right in front of our eyes. The family farm is being systematically wiped out of existence in America, and big agribusiness and the federal government both have blood all over their hands. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the number of farms in the United States has fallen from about 6.8 million in 1935 to only about 2 million today. That doesn't mean that there is less farming going on. U.S. farms are producing more than ever. But what it does mean is that farming is increasingly becoming dominated by the big boys. The rules of the game have been tilted in favor of big agribusiness so dramatically that most small farmers find that they simply cannot compete anymore. Back in 1900, about 39 percent of the U.S. population worked on farms.
“At this point, only about 2 percent of all Americans now live on farms. Big agribusiness, the food processing conglomerates, and big seed companies such as Monsanto completely dominate the industry. Unless something dramatic is done, the family farm is going to continue to be wiped out of existence. Unfortunately, it does not look like things are going to turn around any time soon.
“The way that the farming industry is structured today, it is simply not economically feasible to operate a small family farm. According to Farm Aid, every week approximately 330 farmers leave their land for good.
“Another factor that is shaping the farming business is the incredible power that the giant food processing conglomerates have accumulated.
“Today, there are 10 corporations that control most of the things that Americans eat and drink on a daily basis.
“The giant food processing conglomerates have a massive amount of influence over how food is grown in the United States today. Small farmers that try to go against the tide often have a very rough go of it.
“That is also true when it comes to seeds.
“For example, approximately 80 percent of all corn grown in the United States is grown using seeds that have been genetically modified by Monsanto.
“If you want to try to defy companies such as Monsanto, you are playing a very dangerous game. The predatory business practices of Monsanto have been well documented. Monsanto has taken countless numbers of farmers to court, and they are absolutely ruthless.
“Plus, it certainly does not help that there is a constant revolving door between Monsanto and federal government agencies.
“Amazingly, in spite of all this there are still some small farmers that are able to overcome all of these obstacles and run successful businesses.
“But that is where the federal government comes in.
“In recent years, the federal government has become absolutely obsessed with going after small farmers.” Michael Snyder, The Family Farm is Being Systematically Wiped Out in America, April 26, 2012. http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/the-family-farm-is-being-systematically-wiped-out-of-existence-in-america
“He that kills a man, rids him of his pains at once, but he that takes usury is long in butchering his patient, suffering him little by little to anguish and sucking out his heart blood…” Philip Stubbes, Anatomy of Abuses, chapter eight.
The terms “usury” and “money lending” are almost synonymous with the word “Jew.” But as made plain in this study, the Christians have embraced this corrupt habit, totally prohibited by the word of God, almost as much as the Jew.
Monarchs and aristocrats, even before 1500, permitted some degree of license for usury by Jews, even though it was considered a grievous transgression by gentiles. The monarchs needed loans to fight wars. Little did they know that, in many instances, the “wars” were instigated by Jews precisely to increase the need for money-borrowing by the leaders of the nation-states being (unknowingly) forced to engage in war.
Who Rewrote the Bible?
“By the man-made laws of the Renaissance Catholic Church and succeeding generations of popes and councils, no one who receives interest on loans of money ‘need trouble his conscience.’ Has the Roman Church the power to suspend God’s laws against idolatry? Against adultery? Against the Seventh-day Sabbath? If not, how does it have the power to suspend God’s laws against interest on money?
“The Word of God concerning interest on loans of money, the words from the very lips of Jesus Christ concerning loans, their confirmation by the apostles, and even their confirmation by early popes, councils and theologians for 1500 years, are now, supposedly mistaken, inadequate, and subject to changes based on “circumstances” and “discoveries.” Michael Hoffman, Usury in Christendom, p 337
Why is God’s Word so against Usury?
1. It allows one to make money without working leading to a life of idleness.
The Bible says, “He who does not work, should not eat.” 2 Thess 3:10
All one has to do is look at the lives of the super wealthy and see their lack of ethics (rampant corruption) and their lack of empathy towards everyone else, to see where a rich, idle life leads.
2. The accumulation of wealth is seductive. No one ever “has enough.”
3. People compromise their principles in order to Get Rich! In fact, many of the wealthy end up with no principles at all!
4. Usury leads to wars. In fact, it is Usury that has been the source of ALL WARS in America, as Michael Rivero, former NASA scientist and film maker, points out.
ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS!
January 14, 2013
By Michael Rivero
I know many people have a great deal of difficulty comprehending just how many wars are started for no other purpose than to force private central banks onto nations, so let me share a few examples, so that you understand why the US Government is mired in so many wars against so many foreign nations. There is ample precedent for this.
The United States fought the American Revolution primarily over King George III's Currency act, which forced the colonists to conduct their business only using printed bank notes borrowed from the Bank of England at interest. After the revolution, the new United States adopted a radically different economic system in which the government issued its own value-based money, so that private banks like the Bank of England were not siphoning off the wealth of the people through interest-bearing bank notes.
"The refusal of King George 3rd to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, was probably the prime cause of the revolution." -- Benjamin Franklin, Founding Father.
But bankers are nothing if not dedicated to their schemes to acquire your wealth, and know full well how easy it is to corrupt a nation's leaders. Just one year after Mayer Amschel Rothschild had uttered his infamous "Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws", the bankers succeeded in setting up a new Private Central Bank called the First Bank of the United States, largely through the efforts of the Rothschild's chief US supporter, Alexander Hamilton.
Founded in 1791, by the end of its twenty year charter the First Bank of the United States had almost ruined the nation's economy, while enriching the bankers. Congress refused to renew the charter and signaled their intention to go back to a state issued value based currency on which the people paid no interest at all to any banker. This resulted in a threat from Nathan Mayer Rothschild against the US Government, "Either the application for renewal of the charter is granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war."
Congress still refused to renew the charter for the First Bank of the United States, whereupon Nathan Mayer Rothschild railed, "Teach those impudent Americans a lesson! Bring them back to colonial status!" The British Prime Minister at the time, Spencer Perceval was adamantly opposed to war with the United States, primarily because the majority of England's military might was occupied with the ongoing Napoleonic wars. Spencer Perceval was concerned that Britain might not prevail in a new American war, a concern shared by many in the British government.
Then, Spencer Perceval was assassinated (the only British Prime Minister to be assassinated in office) and replaced by Robert Banks Jenkinson, the 2nd Earl of Liverpool, who was fully supportive of a war to recapture the colonies. Financed at virtually no interest by the Rothschild controlled Bank of England, Britain then provoked the war of 1812 to re-colonize the United States and force them back into the slavery of the Bank of England, or to plunge the United States into so much debt they would be forced to accept a new private central bank. And the plan worked. Even though the War of 1812 was won by the United States, Congress was forced to grant a new charter for yet another private bank issuing the public currency as loans at interest, the Second Bank of the United States.
Once again, private bankers were in control of the nation's money supply and cared not who made the laws or how many British and American soldiers had to die for it.
Once again the nation was plunged into debt, unemployment, and poverty by the predations of the private central bank, and in 1832 Andrew Jackson successfully campaigned for his second term as President under the slogan, "Jackson And No Bank!" True to his word, Jackson succeeds in blocking the renewal of the charter for the Second Bank of the United States.
"Gentlemen! I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal, (bringing his fist down on the table) I will rout you out!" -- Andrew Jackson, shortly before ending the charter of the Second Bank of the United States. From the original minutes of the Philadelphia committee of citizens sent to meet with President Jackson (February 1834), according to Andrew Jackson and the Bank of the United States (1928) by Stan V. Henkels
Shortly after President Jackson (the only American President to actually pay off the National Debt) ended the Second Bank of the United States, there was an attempted assassination which failed when both pistols used by the assassin, Richard Lawrence, failed to fire. Lawrence later said that with Jackson dead, "Money would be more plenty."
Of course, the public school system is as subservient to the bankers' wishes to keep certain history from you, just as the corporate media is subservient to Monsanto's wishes to keep the dangers of GMOs from you, and the global warming cult's wishes to conceal from you that the Earth has actually been cooling for the last 16 years. Thus it should come as little surprise that much of the real reasons for the events of the Civil War are not well known to the average American.
When the Confederacy seceded from the United States, the bankers once again saw the opportunity for a rich harvest of debt, and offered to fund Lincoln's efforts to bring the south back into the union, but at 30% interest. Lincoln remarked that he would not free the black man by enslaving the white man to the bankers and using his authority as President, issued a new government currency, the greenback. This was a direct threat to the wealth and power of the central bankers, who quickly responded.
"If this mischievous financial policy, which has its origin in North America, shall become endurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous without precedent in the history of the world. The brains, and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That country must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe." -- The London Times responding to Lincoln's decision to issue government Greenbacks to finance the Civil War, rather than agree to private banker's loans at 30% interest.
In 1872 New York bankers sent a letter to every bank in the United States, urging them to fund newspapers that opposed government-issued money (Lincoln's greenbacks).
It is advisable to do all in your power to sustain such prominent daily and weekly newspapers... as will oppose the issuing of greenback paper money, and that you also withhold patronage or favors from all applicants who are not willing to oppose the Government issue of money. Let the Government issue the coin and the banks issue the paper money of the country... To restore to circulation the Government issue of money, will be to provide the people with money, and will therefore seriously affect your individual profit as bankers and lenders." -- Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler
"It will not do to allow the greenback, as it is called, to circulate as money any length of time, as we cannot control that." -- Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler
"Slavery is likely to be abolished by the war power, and chattel slavery destroyed. This, I and my European friends are in favor of, for slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care for the laborer, while the European plan, led on by England, is for capital to control labor by controlling the wages. THIS CAN BE DONE BY CONTROLLING THE MONEY." -- Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler
Goaded by the private bankers, much of Europe supported the Confederacy against the Union, with the expectation that victory over Lincoln would mean the end of the Greenback. France and Britain considered an outright attack on the United States to aid the confederacy, but were held at bay by Russia, which had just ended the serfdom system and had a state central bank similar to the system the United States had been founded on. Left free of European intervention, the Union won the war, and Lincoln announced his intention to go on issuing greenbacks. Following Lincoln's assassination, the Greenbacks were pulled from circulation and the American people forced to go back to an economy based on bank notes borrowed at interest from the private bankers. Tsar Alexander II, who authorized Russian military assistance to Lincoln, was himself assassinated one year later.
Finally, in 1913, the Private Central Bankers of Europe, in particular the Rothschilds of Great Britain and the Warburgs of Germany, met with their American financial collaborators on Jekyll Island, Georgia to form a new banking cartel with the express purpose of forming the Third Bank of the United States, with the aim of placing complete control of the United States money supply once again under the control of private bankers. Owing to hostility over the previous banks, the name was changed to "The Federal Reserve" system in order to grant the new bank a quasi-governmental image, but in fact it is a privately owned bank, no more "Federal" than Federal Express. Indeed, in 2012, the Federal Reserve successfully rebuffed a Freedom of Information Lawsuit by Bloomberg News on the grounds that as a private banking corporation and not actually a part of the government, the Freedom of Information Act did not apply to the operations of the Federal Reserve. 1913 proved to be a transformative year for the nation's economy, first with the passage of the 16th "income tax" Amendment and the false claim that it had been ratified.
"I think if you were to go back and try to find and review the ratification of the 16th amendment, which was the internal revenue, the income tax, I think if you went back and examined that carefully, you would find that a sufficient number of states never ratified that amendment." - U.S. District Court Judge James C. Fox, Sullivan Vs. United States, 2003.
Later that same year, and apparently unwilling to risk another questionable amendment, Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act over Christmas holiday 1913, while members of Congress opposed to the measure were at home. This was a very underhanded deal, as the Constitution explicitly vests Congress with the authority to issue the public currency, does not authorize its delegation, and thus should have required a new Amendment to transfer that authority to a private bank. But pass it Congress did, and President Woodrow Wilson signed it as he promised the bankers he would in exchange for generous campaign contributions. Wilson later regretted that decision.
"I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit. We are no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men." -- Woodrow Wilson 1919
The next year, World War One started, and it is important to remember that prior to the creation of the Federal Reserve, there was no such thing as a world war.
World War One started between Austria-Hungary and Serbia, but quickly shifted to focus on Germany, whose industrial capacity was seen as an economic threat to Great Britain, who saw the decline of the British Pound as a result of too much emphasis on financial activity to the neglect of agriculture, industrial development, and infrastructure (not unlike the present day United States). Although pre-war Germany had a private central bank, it was heavily restricted and inflation kept to reasonable levels. Under government control, investment was guaranteed to internal economic development, and Germany was seen as a major power.
So, in the media of the day, Germany was portrayed as the prime opponent of World War One, and not just defeated, but its industrial base flattened. Following the Treaty of Versailles, Germany was ordered to pay the war costs of all the participating nations, even though Germany had not actually started the war. This amounted to three times the value of all of Germany itself. Germany's private central bank, to whom Germany had gone deeply into debt to pay the costs of the war, broke free of government control, and massive inflation followed (mostly triggered by currency speculators) , permanently trapping the German people in endless debt.
When the Weimar Republic collapsed economically, it opened the door for the National Socialists to take power. Their first financial move was to issue their own state currency which was not borrowed from private central bankers. Freed from having to pay interest on the money in circulation, Germany blossomed and quickly began to rebuild its industry. The media called it "The German Miracle". TIME magazine lionized Hitler for the amazing improvement in life for the German people and the explosion of German industry, and even named him TIME Magazine's Man Of The Year in 1938.
Once again, Germany's industrial output became a threat to Great Britain.
"Should Germany merchandise (do business) again in the next 50 years we have led this war (WW1) in vain." - Winston Churchill in The Times (1919) "We will force this war upon Hitler, if he wants it or not." - Winston Churchill (1936 broadcast) "Germany becomes too powerful. We have to crush it." - Winston Churchill (November 1936 speaking to US - General Robert E. Wood) "This war is an English war and its goal is the destruction of Germany." - Winston Churchill (- Autumn 1939 broadcast)
Germany's state-issued value based currency was also a direct threat to the wealth and power of the private central banks, and as early as 1933 they started to organize a global boycott against Germany to strangle this upstart ruler who thought he could break free of private central bankers!
So what happened next?
The Jews Declared War Against Germany!
The U.S. President at the time, Franklin Delano Roosevelt (AKA Rosenveldt), was Jewish. The Prime Minister of England at the time was Winston Churchill. He was Jewish. His Jewish mother was Jennie Jerome. And the leader of Russia was Joseph Stalin (real name: Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili) was also Jewish. (For documentation also on Stalin’s three Jewish wives, see: http://www.jewwatch.com/jew-leaders-stalin
So all three of the allied commanders were Jewish. It was these three Jewish world leaders, plus the other leaders of International Jewry who Declared War on Germany.
Here is a the UK Daily Express headlines revealing that it was the Jews who declared war against Germany! Not the other way around.
As had been the case in World War One, Great Britain and other nations threatened by Germany's economic power looked for an excuse to go to war, and public anger in Germany grew over the boycott. Yet Hitler showed great restraint. Great Britain bombed Germany six times before Germany retaliated.
"The war wasn't only about abolishing fascism, but to conquer sales markets. We could have, if we had intended so, prevented this war from breaking out without doing one shot, but we didn't want to."- Winston Churchill to Truman (Fultun, USA March 1946)
"Germany's unforgivable crime before WW2 was its attempt to loosen its economy out of the world trade system and to build up an independent exchange system from which the world-finance couldn't profit anymore. ...We butchered the wrong pig." -Winston Churchill (The Second World War - Bern, 1960)
Marine Major General Smedley Butler tells his story: "I spent 33 years and four months in active military service as a member of our country's most agile military force -- the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from second lieutenant to Major General. And during that period I spent more of my time being a high--class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. "I suspected I was just a part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it.
“Like all members of the military profession I never had an original thought until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service. Thus I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-12. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that the Standard Oil went its way unmolested.
“During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. I was rewarded with honors, medals and promotion. Looking back on it, I feel I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three city districts. I operated on three continents." -- General Smedley Butler, former US Marine Corps Commandant,1935
As President, John F. Kennedy understood the predatory nature of private central banking. He understood why Andrew Jackson fought so hard to end the Second Bank of the United States. So Kennedy wrote and signed Executive Order 11110 which ordered the US Treasury to issue a new public currency, the United States Note.
The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 took control of America’s money supply OUT of the hands of Congress and gave it INTO the hands of the Jewish International Bankers. The Federal Reserve Bank is NOT “Federal” nor does it have ANY “Reserves.” It is a private Corporation run by the International Jewish Bankers for the sole purpose of controlling the money supply of the United States. Every member of the Board of the Federal Reserve Bank is Jewish.
As Jewish Banker Mayer Amschel Rothschild said:
“Give me control of a Nation’s money, and I care not who makes its laws.”
Below, you will see a legal United States Note. Below that you will see an illegal Federal Reserve note, what Americans now refer to as actual “money.”
Kennedy's United States Notes were not borrowed from the Federal Reserve but created by the US Government and backed by the silver stockpiles held by the US Government. It represented a return to the system of economics the United States had been founded on, and was perfectly legal for Kennedy to do. All told, some four and one half billion dollars went into public circulation, eroding interest payments to the Federal Reserve and loosening their control over the nation. Five months later John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas Texas, and the United States Notes pulled from circulation and destroyed (except for samples held by collectors). John J. McCloy, President of the Chase Manhattan Bank, and President of the World Bank, was named to the Warren Commission, presumably to make certain the banking dimensions behind the assassination were concealed from the public.
As we enter the eleventh year of what future history will most certainly describe as World War Three, we need to examine the financial dimensions behind the wars.
Towards the end of World War Two, when it became obvious that the allies were going to win and dictate the post war environment, the major world economic powers met at Bretton Woods, a luxury resort in New Hampshire in July of 1944, and hammered out the Bretton Woods agreement for international finance. The British Pound lost its position as the global trade and reserve currency to the US dollar (part of the price demanded by Roosevelt in exchange for the US entry into the war). Absent the economic advantages of being the world's "go-to" currency, Britain was forced to nationalize the Bank of England in 1946.
The Bretton Woods agreement, ratified in 1945, in addition to making the dollar the global reserve and trade currency, obligated the signatory nations to tie their currencies to the dollar. The nations that ratified Bretton Woods did so on two conditions. The first was that the Federal Reserve would refrain from over-printing the dollar as a means to loot real products and produce from other nations in exchange for ink and paper; basically an imperial tax. That assurance was backed up by the second requirement, which was that the US dollar would always be convertible to gold at $35 per ounce.
Of course, the Federal Reserve, being a private bank and not answerable to the US Government, did start overprinting paper dollars, and much of the perceived prosperity of the 1950s and 1960s was the result of foreign nations' obligations to accept the paper notes as being worth gold at the rate of $35 an ounce. Then in 1970, France looked at the huge pile of paper notes sitting in their vaults, for which real French products like wine and cheese had been traded, and notified the United States government that they would exercise their option under Bretton Woods to return the paper notes for gold at the $35 per ounce exchange rate. Of course, the United States had nowhere near the gold to redeem the paper notes, so on August 15th, 1971, Richard Nixon "temporarily" suspended the gold convertibility of the US Federal Reserve Notes.
This "Nixon shock" effectively ended Bretton Woods and many global currencies started to delink from the US dollar. Worse, since the United States had collateralized their loans with the nation's gold reserves, it quickly became apparent that the US Government did not in fact have enough gold to cover the outstanding debts. Foreign nations began to get very nervous about their loans to the US and understandably were reluctant to loan any additional money to the United States without some form of collateral.
So Richard Nixon started the environmental movement, with the EPA and its various programs such as "wilderness zones", Roadless areas", Heritage rivers", "Wetlands", all of which took vast areas of public lands and made them off limits to the American people who were technically the owners of those lands. But Nixon had little concern for the environment and the real purpose of this land grab under the guise of the environment was to pledge those pristine lands and their vast mineral resources as collateral on the national debt. The plethora of different programs was simply to conceal the true scale of how much American land was being pledged to foreign lenders as collateral on the government's debts; eventually almost 25% of the nation itself.
With open lands for collateral already in short supply, the US Government embarked on a new program to shore up sagging international demand for the dollar. The United States approached the world's oil producing nations, mostly in the Middle East, and offered them a deal. In exchange for only selling their oil for dollars, the United States would guarantee the military safety of those oil-rich nations. The oil rich nations would agree to spend and invest their US paper dollars inside the United States, in particular in US Treasury Bonds, redeemable through future generations of US taxpayers. The concept was labeled the "petrodollar".
In effect, the US, no longer able to back the dollar with gold, was now backing it with oil. Other peoples' oil. And that necessity to keep control over those oil nations to prop up the dollar has shaped America's foreign policy in the region ever since.
But as America's manufacturing and agriculture has declined, the oil producing nations faced a dilemma. Those piles of US Federal Reserve notes were not able to purchase much from the United States because the United States had little (other than real estate) anyone wanted to buy. Europe's cars and aircraft were superior and less costly, while experiments with GMO food crops led to nations refusing to buy US food exports. Israel's constant belligerence against its neighbors caused them to wonder if the US could actually keep their end of the petrodollar arrangement.
Oil producing nations started to talk of selling their oil for whatever currency the purchasers chose to use. Iraq, already hostile to the United States following Desert Storm, demanded the right to sell their oil for Euros in 2000 and in 2002, the United Nations agreed to allow it under the "Oil for food" program instituted following Desert Storm. One year later the United States re-invaded Iraq, lynched Saddam Hussein, and placed Iraq's oil back on the world market only for US dollars.
The clear US policy shift following 9-11, away from being an impartial broker of peace in the Mideast to one of unquestioned support for Israel's aggressions only further eroded confidence in the Petrodollar deal and even more oil producing nations started openly talking of oil trade for other global currencies.
Over in Libya, Muammar Gaddafi had instituted a state-owned central bank and a value based trade currency, the Gold Dinar. Gaddafi announced that Libya's oil was for sale, but only for the Gold Dinar. Other African nations, seeing the rise of the Gold Dinar and the Euro, even as the US dollar continued its inflation-driven decline, flocked to the new Libyan currency for trade. This move had the potential to seriously undermine the global hegemony of the dollar. French President Nicolas Sarkozy reportedly went so far as to call Libya a “threat” to the financial security of the world. So, the United States invaded Libya, brutally murdered Qaddafi ( the object lesson of Saddam's lynching not being enough of a message, apparently), imposed a private central bank, and returned Libya's oil output to dollars only. The gold that was to have been made into the Gold Dinars is, as of last report, unaccounted for.
According to General Wesley Clark, the master plan for the "dollarification" of the world's oil nations included seven targets, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran (Venezuela, which dared to sell their oil to China for the Yuan, is a late addition). What is notable about the original seven nations originally targeted by the US is that none of them are members of the Bank for International Settlements, the private central bankers private central bank, located in Switzerland. This meant that these nations were deciding for themselves how to run their nations' economies, rather than submit to the international private banks.
Now the bankers' gun sights are on Iran, which dares to have a government central bank and sell their oil for whatever currency they choose. The war agenda is, as always, to force Iran's oil to be sold only for dollars and to force them to accept a privately owned central bank. Malaysia, one of the new nations without a Rothschild central bank, is now being invaded by a force claimed to be "Al Qaeda", and with the death of President Hugo Chavez, plans to impose a US and banker friendly regime on Venezuela are clearly being implemented.
The German government recently asked for the return of some of their gold bullion from the Bank of France and the New York Federal Reserve. France has said it will take 5 years to return Germany's gold. The United States has said they will need 8 years to return Germany's gold. This suggests strongly that the Bank of France and the NY Federal Reserve have used the deposited gold for other purposes, most likely to cover gold futures contracts used to artificially suppress the price of gold to keep investors in the equities markets, and the Central Banks are scrambling to find new gold to cover the shortfall and prevent a gold run.
So it is inevitable that suddenly France invades Mali, ostensibly to combat Al Qaeda, with the US joining in. Mali just happens to be one of the world's largest gold producers with gold accounting for 80% of Mali exports. War for the bankers does not get more obvious than that!
Mexico has demanded a physical audit of their gold bullion stored at the Bank of England, and along with Venezuela's vast oil reserves (larger than Saudi Arabia), Venezuela's gold mines are a prize lusted after by all the Central Banks that played fast and loose with other peoples' gold bullion. So we can expect regime change if not outright invasion soon.
You have been raised by a public school system and media that constantly assures you that the reasons for all these wars and assassinations are many and varied. The US claims to bring democracy to the conquered lands (they haven't; the usual result of a US overthrow is the imposition of a dictatorship, such as the 1953 CIA overthrow of Iran's democratically elected government of Mohammad Mosaddegh and the imposition of the Shah, or the 1973 CIA overthrow of Chile's democratically elected government of President Salvador Allende, and the imposition of Augusto Pinochet), or to save a people from a cruel oppressor, revenge for 9-11, or that tired worn-out catch all excuse for invasion, weapons of mass destruction. Assassinations are always passed off as "crazed lone nuts" to obscure the real agenda.
The real agenda is simple. It is enslavement of the people by creation of a false sense of obligation. That obligation is false because the Private Central Banking system, by design, always creates more debt than money with which to pay that debt. Private Central Banking is not science, it is a religion; a set of arbitrary rules created to benefit the priesthood, meaning the owners of the Private Central Bank. The fraud persists, with often lethal results, because the people are tricked into believing that this is the way life is supposed to be and no alternative exists or should be dreamt of. The same was true of two earlier systems of enslavement, Rule by Divine Right and Slavery, both systems built to trick people into obedience, and both now recognized by modern civilization as illegitimate.
Now we are entering a time in human history where we will recognize that rule by debt, or rule by Private Central Bankers issuing the public currency as a loan at interest, is equally illegitimate. It only works as long as people allow themselves to believe that this is the way life is supposed to be.
But understand this above all; Private Central Banks do not exist to serve the people, the community, or the nation. Private Central Banks exist to serve their owners, to make them rich beyond the dreams of Midas and all for the cost of ink, paper, and the right bribe to the right official.
Behind all these wars, all these assassinations, the hundred million horrible deaths from all the wars lies a single policy of dictatorship. The private central bankers allow rulers to rule only on the condition that the people of a nation be enslaved to the private central banks. Failing that, said ruler will be killed, and their nation invaded by those other nations enslaved to private central banks.
The so-called "clash of civilizations" we read about on the corporate media is really a war between banking systems, with the private central bankers forcing themselves onto the rest of the world, no matter how many millions must die for it. Indeed the constant hatemongering against Muslims lies in a simple fact. Like the ancient Christians (prior to the Knights Templars private banking system) , Muslims forbid usury, or the lending of money at interest. And that is the reason our government and media insist they must be killed or converted. They refuse to submit to currencies issued at interest. They refuse to be debt slaves.
So off to war your children must go, to spill their blood for the money-junkies' gold. We barely survived the last two world wars. In the nuclear/bioweapon age, are the private central bankers willing to risk incinerating the whole planet just to feed their greed?
Flag waving and propaganda aside, all modern wars are wars by and for the private bankers, fought and bled for by third parties unaware of the true reason they are expected to gracefully be killed and crippled for. The process is quite simple. As soon as the Private Central Bank issues its currency as a loan at interest, the public is forced deeper and deeper into debt. When the people are reluctant to borrow any more, that is when the Keynesian economists demand the government borrow more to keep the pyramid scheme working. When both the people and government refuse to borrow any more, that is when wars are started, to plunge everyone even deeper into debt to pay for the war, then after the war to borrow more to rebuild. When the war is over, the people have about the same as they did before the war, except the graveyards are far larger and everyone is in debt to the private bankers for the next century.
As long as Private Central Banks are allowed to exist, inevitably as the night follows day there will be poverty, hopelessness, and millions of deaths in endless World Wars, until the Earth itself is sacrificed in flames to Mammon.
The path to true peace on Earth lies in the abolishment of all private central banking everywhere, and a return to the state-issued value-based currencies that allow nations and people to become prosperous.
What would America and the world be like now if the nation had truly been “Christian” and Usury had not been practiced?
If all people, and all nations, had obeyed the command of God against Usury, the American economy would not be in its present state of depression with a phony national debt (to the international Jewish bankers the Federal Reserve Bank) for trillions of dollars, there would be no wars, and there would not be even one individual deceived and financially destroyed by any Ponzi scheme, including the one by infamous Bernie Madoff (again, a Jew).
The economy would be thriving, jobs would be plentiful, there would be no wars and no loved ones horribly slaughtered in war defending NOT “freedom” but the Jewish bankers insatiable appetite to take over the natural resources of every nation in the world.
There would be no phony “War on Terror,” and we would not have been enslaved by the Jewish international bankers who take, in taxes from the American people, EVERY DOLLAR they make, working at their job between January and July of EVERY year! When will we learn to obey God rather than man? We are slaves to the Jews of the Federal Reserve Bank.
When will we learn to obey God rather than man? The Bible tells us:
“We ought to obey God rather than man.” Acts 5:29
When will be learn that God’s way is the ONLY way?
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean NOT on thine own understanding. In ALL thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.” Prov 3:5,6
As Jesus said,
“The Love of money IS (indeed) the root of all evil.” 1 Tim 6:10
