*This commentary is run monthly in effort to educate our new clients on what exactly the Federal Reserve is.
Throughout history central bankers have continually proven they are among the most corrupt and vial predators the world has ever seen. Most American’s have no idea that the Federal Reserve is America’s 4th central bank. The previous 3 were destroyed by righteous men including Andrew Jackson.
Behind most successful politicians is a central banker who is directing the leash. Until we dismantle the Federal Reserve the U.S. will remain on its current course of destruction, bankruptcy and socialism. Failure to understand the past means failure to comprehend the present. We wanted to offer a few thoughts concerning central bankers from past American patriots.
“Mischief springs from the power which the moneyed interest derives from a paper currency which they are able to control, from the multitude of corporations with exclusive privileges… which are employed altogether for their benefit.” – Andrew Jackson
“If Congress has the right under the Constitution to issue paper money, it was given them to use themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations.” – Andrew Jackson
“The bold effort the present (central) bank had made to control the government … are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it.” – Andrew Jackson
”You are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out and by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be a revolution before morning.” – Andrew Jackson, 1828
“A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many and various powerful interests, combined in one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in banks.” – John C. Calhoun, Vice President June 27, 1836
“Bank-paper must be suppressed, and the circulating medium must be restored to the nation to whom it belongs.” – Thomas Jefferson
“And I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.” – Thomas Jefferson
“The dominion which the banking institutions have obtained over the minds of our citizens…must be broken, or it will break us.” – Thomas Jefferson
“But if in the pursuit of the means we should unfortunately stumble again on unfunded paper money or any similar species of fraud, we shall assuredly give a fatal stab to our national credit in its infancy. Paper money will invariably operate in the body of politics as spirit liquors on the human body. They prey on the vitals and ultimately destroy them. Paper money has had the effect in your state that it will ever have, to ruin commerce, oppress the honest, and open the door to every species of fraud and injustice.” – George Washington
“We are in danger of being overwhelmed with irredeemable paper, mere paper, representing not gold nor silver; no sir, representing nothing but broken promises, bad faith, bankrupt corporations, cheated creditors and a ruined people.” – Daniel Webster”
This Act (the Federal Reserve Act, Dec. 23rd 1913) establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President (Woodrow Wilson) signs the Bill, the invisible government of the Monetary Power will be legalized… The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency Bill.” – Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh Sr.
Lastly, listen to Woodrow Wilson himself who passed the Federal Reserve Act in 1913:
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world—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 the duress of small groups of dominant men.” – Woodrow Wilson, reflecting on passage of the Federal Reserve Act
“A little group of willful men, representing no opinion but their own, have rendered the great government of the United States helpless and contemptible.” – Woodrow Wilson
