The HISTORY of MONEY! A Photo of American Hundred Dollar Bills (An Investigative Report) By Ray Walter Swangkee The Colorful Peacock from Angel Ridge, Box 305E58, King’s Mountain, Kentucky 40442 The Divided States of United Lies! My E-mail Address is: email@example.com as in, “The King at TELL ALL, dot, Network of Truth!” Please Visit the most Beautiful, Enlightening, and Inspiring Website on the Internet, at: www.ThePeacock.com “O my Son, Money, itself, seems to be a Mystery to many People: because they have no Idea where it comes from, nor why that it was Invented, nor why it keeps Losing Value, nor why some People have so much of it while they have so little of it; nor who Controls its Production, Distribution, and Use; but behold, all of those Questions have been Answered, and the Answers may Shock most People: because they do not Know the HISTORY of MONEY.” “O my Daughter, just Think of the many Unnecessary Arguments that could have easily been Avoided, if you had had Sufficient Money in Order to Buy those Good Things that you Need; but cannot now Afford.” Proverbs of the Colorful Peacock from Angel Ridge The HISTORY of MONEY!

No Rights are Reserved, except that no one has the Right to Reproduce this Information by any Means for Sale: because it is provided for the General Public, Free of Charge, by The Swangkee Association of Truth Seekers and Treasure Hunters, Worldwide!1 This Unique Book is now DEDICATED to the Masses of Ignorant People, Worldwide, who have been taken Advantage of by Bankers and Money Lenders since the Beginning of History. May they come to Realize that there never was a Good Reason for a Shortage of Money, nor any Need for Bankers, except in Order to Store our Money in a Safe Place; but only after every Person in the World is Moderately Rich: because it is far more Practical for all People to be Moderately Rich, rather than go to War over the Last Cup of Recycled Sewage Water, or over the Last Loaf of Devitalized Demineralized Stale Pale Bread!2 Indeed, you might have Noticed by now that even in the Professing “Richest Country on Earth,” there are many Homeless People, and Multitudes of Poor People, in spite of so many Professing “Rich People,” most of 1 See the Peacock’s Website for his Free Booklets, called: Justification of Capitalization!, and: Is it a SIN to Make MERCHANDISE of The Words of God?? 2 See the Peacock’s Website for his Free Booklet, called: What will you Do when the Rain STOPS?? 3 The HISTORY of MONEY! whom also Owe Money to those Friendly Bankers: because they have also been Caught in the Banker’s Trap, which is as Subtle as that of any Sneaky Hunter’s Trap, which most People are Unaware of: because they are Convinced that Bankers are Necessary for Loaning Money, even though the Colorful Peacock from Angel Ridge Proves that they are not, and Offers a ONE-MILLION- DOLLAR REWARD to any Person on this Earth who can Prove his Inspired Words of Truth and Wisdom to be Wrong According to Reason and Logic, or According to the Scriptures, which Support his Beliefs, which can be Proven in a Court of Law and Order! Chapter 1 The First Money If you tell some Group of Potential Capitalists that you are going to hold a Convention for Accountants, the Response might be a few Yawns and Nods; but the Subject of HOW Money Works is probably one of the most Interesting Subjects in the World, in spite of the Lack of Interest that most People show for it. Indeed, it is Fascinating how that Money suddenly Appeared in almost all Cultures of Civilized People in the whole World: because of its Practicality when Exchanging Goods and Services. In Fact, the Principle Idea for the Use of Money is the same or similar in all Cultures, in spite of using Different Objects that Represent Money. For Example, the American Indians used Wampum, while West Africans Traded Decorative Metal Objects called Manilas, and the Fijians based their Economy on Whales’ Teeth, some of which are still Legal Tender; and then Add to that List: Sea Shells, Amber, Ivory, Decorative Feathers, Beads, various Kinds of Stones, including Jade and Quartz, plus Livestock like Cattle, Sheep, and Hogs all of which have been Accepted “Currency,” you might 4 The HISTORY of MONEY! say: because they Used those Things as MONEY and you have some Idea concerning the Diversity of Objects that were Used, and are still being Used for Money. Moreover, it was a Sensible thing for any Community to do: because the Person who has what you Need, might not Want what you have for Sale or Trade; but any Accepted Money was Workable for Trading almost anything, just as long as there were Objects of Different Values, which could be Traded for Material Things and Services of Equal Value to those Objects; and Modern Money, itself, Solves those Problems that would arise from not having the Exact Right Size of a Cow or House for Trading, for Example: because Modern Money comes in all Sizes from a Penny to billions of Dollars, and makes it very Convenient for Trading Goods and Services, even though Money, itself, is a Burdensome Thing that neither God nor his Holy Angels deal with: because they Share their Possessions, even as the Wild Animals Share their Possessions: because they all Believe in Interdependence, rather than Independence.3 Indeed, when you Consider the BURDENSOME Ordeal of Filing Income Tax Forms, for Example, under Penalty of a Fine and/or Imprisonment, if you do not get it Right, that Money, itself, is a PAIN in the Brain, and might even Account for X-amount of Migraine Headaches! Nevertheless, just as long as there is Mistrust, Selfishness, Lust, and Greed in this World of Woes, which has Inspired the Use of Money, Worldwide, we are Tied and Bound to the Monetary System, which also brings a certain Amount of Justice for the Laboring Person, who can Demand Fair Wages, or else quit his or her Job, and try to find a more Reasonable Employer who can Relate with the Needs and Wants of his or her Employees; or else he or she can Try to set up his or her own Potential Business, and then Discover what it is like to Invest many Years of Toil and Sweat in something that might easily Fail. For Example, there are 3 See my Website for my Free Booklet, called: The Declaration of Interdependence! 5 The HISTORY of MONEY! more than 10 million new Businesses that get Started each Year, both here and over the Seas; but only about 100,000 of them stay in Business for more than 3 Years: because those Failing Businesses were more or less Built on HOPE, Faith, Trust, and Love; but not on Practicality, True Knowledge, Illusion, Lies, and Deceptions such as the Addictive Cigarette, Coke, Candy, and Gasoline Industries, which Rely on LIES and Deceptions, just to Remain in Business. After all, most People Lived very Well for 5,000 Years without those Addictive Things, and they also Avoided many of our Common Ailments. Indeed, you have never read about Cancer, Asthma, Alzheimer, and Polio in the Bible: because those are mostly Modern Diseases, which have Increased according to the so-called “Prosperity” of the Masses of People: beCause Overfed People have a Tendency to Contract more Diseases and Ailments than Poor People. (See my Website for my Free Booklet, called: What is the PUNISHMENT for Dietary SINS??) Now, you can Understand that it was only Natural that the Lust for more Money would Overpower the Bounds of its Usefulness as merely a Tool for Trading Goods and Services: because certain People are not Governed by Biblical Principles of Loving their Neighbors as much as they Love themselves, and Doing unto others as they would have others Do unto them, since most People in the World have never even read the Bible from Cover to Cover so much as one Time; and those People who have read it, have often picked up on or caught onto the Negative Aspect of what the Bible Presents concerning Money, whereby they have become like Leeches in a Jungle Swamp, who Suck on the Lifeblood of whomever they come into Contact with, rather than becoming Productive Constructive Members of Society, who Produce Necessary Goods and Services. Yes, those Bloodsucking Leeches have been around for a very long Time, in all Kinds of Jungles, along with People who are like Vicious Bears, Ferocious Lions, Ravenous Wolves, Sly Foxes, Stinking Prostituting Skunks, 6 The HISTORY of MONEY! Poisonous Lying Snakes, and also Colorful Peacocks, who can WARN you about them: because they Discovered that the Banker’s Leech System was Profitable, which takes Advantage of all of the People who are like Ignorant Sheep, Lustful Goats, Hungry Cows, Hardworking Workhorses, Deer, and Innocent Birds of all Kinds. (See my Website for my Free Booklet, called: Justification of Symbols, Creatures, and Characters!, which Explains what those Creatures and Characters are like.) For Example, let us try to Visualize ourselves Living some 4,000 Years ago, when Knowledge was Limited, and Tools were Scarce. For Example, an entire Community might have just ONE 2-Man Crosscut Saw, while another nearby Community might have 3 or 4 such Saws, which they might Rent or Loan to the Poor Community that has no Saw: because it has been their Custom to use Axes, instead of Saws. However, just as soon as they Discover the Great Advantages for Using those 2-Man Crosscut Saws, they Naturally Want to take Advantage of those Advantages. However, Ignorant Poor People had no Means to make their own Saws, even as most People TODAY have no Idea as to HOW to Construct a Saw of any Kind: because they Rely on other Skilled Craftsmen to take Care of those Things. Nevertheless, when there was Great Demand for any particular Tool, it was Obtainable from someone, IF you had Sufficient MONEY: because Money could almost always Buy whatever was Available. Therefore, the Person who has Control of the Money Supply is the one who Controls or Determines WHO can Prosper, and who cannot Prosper. For Example, let us say that there just happens to be one Rich Man within that Community that has only ONE 2-Man Crosscut Saw, and he says to the Poor Hardworking Woodsman, “I will Loan to you the Necessary Money in Order for you to Rent another Saw from that Community that has 3 or 4 Saws, if you will Agree to Pay me with 10 percent of the Trees that you cut down, since that Saw will make it possible for you to cut down 4 times as 7 The HISTORY of MONEY! many Trees with half of the Effort that it would Require, if you were to Use the Customary Ax!” to which the Poor Woodsman would Naturally Respond with at least 2 Responses, saying one to himself in Private, and another one to the Lender of Money, saying to himself: “You Damned Greedy Son of a BITCH, what makes you Worthy of 10% of my Trees, just for Loaning to me the Necessary Money in Order that I might RENT a Saw from a similar Deceiving Thief and Liar like yourself, who also Wants another 10% of my Trees, while the Tax Master also Wants another 20% of my Trees, while the Sawmill Operator will Want HALF of my Trees, just for making Useable Lumber out of them!” But, to the Rich Man, he says: “O, Thank you, Sir, for making Life so much Better for me, and for making it Possible for me to Cut down 4 times as many Trees, even though it takes me all Day long just to cut down ONE Tree, remove the Limbs, and Drag it to the Sawmill by Means of my Mule!” to which the Rich Man Responds with a Laugh, while he Slaps him on the Shoulder, and says: “But you have 3 Young Healthy Boys who will soon be Old Enough in Order to Help you to do the Work, and then you will Prosper more at their Expense!” to which the Poor Hardworking Woodsman will Respond, “But who will Grow and Prepare their Food, Wash their Clothes, and Pack their Water Home from the Town Well, while they are Sweating in the Forest with me?” to which the Rich Man will Laugh once again, and say: “By that Time you will probably have 3 or 4 Daughters who can take Care of that Business: because, after Doing so much Difficult Work, your Ding Dong or Tally Whacker will not be STIFF Enough nor FULL of Enough Sperm in Order to squirt out your Sperm far Enough in Order to Quickly Fertilize the Eggs: because that is what is Required in Order to Reproduce BOYS, instead of GIRLS! Meanwhile, I have 4 or 5 other Poor People standing Outside at my Door, Patiently Waiting to Borrow more Money from me, to whom I must Explain similar Things: because they are Equally as Ignorant as you are. Therefore, make up your mind do you Want some Money for Renting that Saw, or NOT?” to which 8 The HISTORY of MONEY! the Woodsman will Naturally Respond, but only to himself: “What other Choice do I have, seeing that if I do not Borrow the Money from you, I will have to Borrow it from some other Rich Hog like yourself? Moreover, what does having Sex have to Do with this Subject? Is he simply trying to Distract my Mind with the Thoughts of Sex, or what??” But, to the Friendly Banker, he Cheerfully says: “Well, Sir, if you will be so Kind as to Loan the Money to me, I will not only Pay you 10% of the Trees; but I will also get my Lazy Wife to Bake some Delicious Whole Wheat Bread for you: because I know that you are a very Busy Person, who hardly has Enough Time to Deal with some little Piss Ant like me!” And thus, beCause of his Poverty, the Woodsman makes a 2- faced Lying Hypocrite of himself, and Wears a MASK of Pretended Love and Concern for the Overfed Pot-bellied Banker, while Bitter Tears well up Inside of him: because he cannot Afford to be Perfectly Honest with the so-called “Rich” Banker, whom he Curses in Silence, until he gets Home, at which Time he takes out his Frustrations on his own Innocent Family, whom he Blames for not doing Enough Work in Order to Help him, even though they have Sacrificed their whole Lives in Order to Help him: because Life is a Great STRUGGLE in a Cursed Land that does not have Sufficient Money for Obtaining the Proper Tools for the People to Work with, which Produces Thieves, Liars, Deceivers, and Greedy Hogs, who Practice Bankercraft, which is the Financial Art of Fleecing the Ignorant Sheep of the Good Shepherd, who have never Discovered the Word “USURY” within their Bibles. However, the Word Usury has been Changed to what is known as Charging Interest on a Loan, which Means that an Ordinary Ignorant Sheep of the Good Shepherd would have to look up the Meaning of Usury in his or her Dictionary, or else Rely on some Lazy Preacher or Misguided Sunday School Teacher in Order to give to him or her some LESSONS about Usury: because it is for Certain that no Mention will be made of it within any Public School of Ignorant Fools, even though they do read about 9 The HISTORY of MONEY! Divorces, Suicides, Murders, Bank Robberies, and all Kinds of Evil Things that are RELATED with USURY, which Inspired all Kinds of Evils. For Example, when that Woodsman got Home with his Rented Saw, after Walking 20 Miles just to get it, he Stepped on a Rock that turned over and caused him to Spring his Ankle, which made it Impossible for him to do any Work in the Woods: because, when he fell down, he also Broke his Wrist; but the Saw was Rented by the Month, with NO Excuses! Indeed, if he had Known that he was going to Spring his Ankle, and Break his Wrist, he would not have even Rented the Saw; but he had Hope that all would Work out Well, for which he Acted by FAITH, Trust, Hope, and Love: because his Occupation in Life is Innocent, Pure, and Godly; but that of the Bankers, Lawyers, Witchdoctors, Druggists, Tax Masters, and Preachers is often Dishonest, Conniving, Tricky, and usually Greedy: because the People who were Naturally Born to be MASTERS have simply taken Advantage of the People who were Naturally Born to be SERVANTS.4 Moreover, he was not Humble Enough in Order to Blame himself for Cursing at the Banker, for which Reason he probably Slipped on the Rock: because Pride comes before Destruction, as King Solomon Warned, even though he did not figure that out: because he was Blinded by his Righteous Anger, which is called INDIGNATION, which was Initially Caused by the Greedy Banker, and was Multiplied by the Greedy Capitalist who Rented the Saw to him, who Refused to Refund his Money when his Wife Returned the Saw the very next Day, and Walked another 20 Miles at her own Expense, for which no one Paid her anything! Meanwhile, both the Banker and the Renter of the Saw were Sending out Invitations for People to come to the Weddings of their Children, at which Time there would be a large Feast and much Drinking, which was Paid for by similar People to those Hardworking Woodsmen and 4 See my Website for my Free Booklets, called: Were you Born to be a MASTER, or a SERVANT??, Can Bankers be Trusted??, Can Lawyers be Trusted??, Can Medical Doctors be TRUSTED??, and: Can Politicians be Trusted?? 10 The HISTORY of MONEY! Lumberjacks, who never did get Enough Money in Order to Drag themselves OUT of the Banker’s Pit, which had very STICKY TAR in the Bottom of it, so that once a Person got his or her Feet STUCK in the Tar, there was no Way Out of it! Indeed, one Debt Led to another Debt, until the Day that he Died, and then his Poor Wife had to Borrow Money just to Bury him: because the Wicked Lying Hypocritical Government which Claims to Promote Freedom, Liberty, and Justice for ALL would not Allow her to Dig a Hole in the Garden, where she might Bury him for one-day’s Labor; but, instead, they would Force her to Waste 2 Years of Labor, just to Bury her Husband in a so-called “Proper” Cemetery! Therefore, her Poor Friends and Relatives had Pity on her, and Sacrificed their only remaining Pennies, in Order to Assist her to Bury her Husband without Borrowing Money from the Banker, even though she would have been Contented to Dig that Hole in the Garden for FREE! Yes, her Friends and Relatives would have Gladly done it for her: because they Loved her; but the Wicked Government would not Allow it: because they Claimed that the Chemical Preservatives within his Body might Contaminate the Garden, and even Poison someone during the Future, when an Apple Tree might be Growing in that same Garden. However, they had already Buried their Old Mule in that Garden, and the Grape Vines that were Planted above him were doing Well, and no one was Poisoned by it. However, that was too Reasonable of a Solution for the Policy Makers, who could not Resist making things Complicated: because Complications bring in Confusion, and Confusion brings in Frustration, and Frustration brings in Anger, and Anger brings in Arguments, and Arguments bring in False Accusations, and False Accusations bring in Hate, and Hate brings in Revenge, which was Fulfilled when those Tormented Villagers Rounded up those Greedy Bankers and Highway Robbers, and HUNG THEM by their Necks on Haman’s Gallows, until they were DEAD! (See the Book of Esther for more Details about Red Jew Bankers.) Yes, it finally Crossed their Weak Minds that they did not have to Allow such Greedy People to take 11 The HISTORY of MONEY! Advantage of them: because one of the Sons of that Woodsman Grew up, left Home, and just Happened to Visit another Country, where all of the People had Learned to Cooperate with each other: because they just Happened to Notice that their Livestock were Living in PEACE with Contentment, and therefore it might also be Possible for them to also Live in PEACE with Contentment. Yes, they had a completely Different Form of Good Government, which was Based on SHARING and CARING for one another, like one large Family. Therefore, if there was a Need for Crosscut Saws, Hammers, Shovels, Plows, Pots, Pans, Dishes, or whatever, they simply Discovered the Best Method for Producing such Tools, and then Shared their Knowledge, Skills, Abilities, Time, and Energy, in Order to Produce those Tools: because that made it Possible for all of them to Truly Prosper, without going to War over some Material Thing: because of Lust, Envy, Hate, Jealousy, Greed, or whatever. Moreover, when any of them Died, they simply put their Bodies into Family Tombs, where the Bones were gathered up and piled up for Centuries at NO Extra Expense: because no Coffins were Needed, since each large Stone Tomb was Sealed up at the Door, until the next Person in that Family should Die, who was simply Buried under a foot of Dirt, which Absorbed most of the Stink, while it also Fed some Worms: because that is the Natural Course of Life and Death, which is Acceptable with God and all Sane People, even though there are many Foolish People who have a Superstitious Belief that if their Bodies are Mummified, they will somehow be made Immortal! (See my Website for my Free Book, called: What Happens when we DIE?? Volumes 1 & 2.) Therefore, there was the Initial Expense of making the Family Tombs; but, after that, it was no longer a Problem for a thousand Years for those Wise People. Therefore, that Enlightened Son came back Home to his Native Land, and Discovered the Horrible Degree to which his own People had Corrupted themselves by Means of their Greed and Selfishness, and it Broke his Heart just to Think about them; but at the same Time, he was Compelled by his Love and Compassion for them in Order to Help them: because 12 The HISTORY of MONEY! they were his own People. Nevertheless, most of the People in his Community Rejected his Words of Truth, and even Mocked him for it: because they had been Totally Seduced by their Lies, and had Greatly Multiplied their Bankercraft, and had Added on Lawyercraft, Priestcraft, Doctorcraft, and Witchcraft, whereby certain Intellectual People took Advantage of the other Ignorant People, and set themselves up as Authority Figures among them, whom the Masses of Ignorant People Trusted: because they called themselves “Experts,” “Doctors,” and “Professionals,” who Awarded themselves with all Kinds of Medals and Trophies for their Great Achievements! For Example, the Son of that Wicked Banker got himself into the Crosscut Saw Business: because there were Multitudes of Trees in the Forests that could be Exploited for his own Gain: because he Reasoned that all such Houses that had been Built of Wood were Guaranteed to ROT DOWN, BURN UP, BLOW AWAY, GET EATEN UP BY TERMITES, or be Destroyed in some other Way. Therefore, all such Houses would have to be Rebuilt, which would keep him and his Sons and their Brothers and Sisters in Business for a very long Time to come: because the Masses of People would never Perceive that anything might be Wrong with such Wooden Firetrap Mouse-infested Cockroach Dens, since they would be too Busy trying to Earn Enough Money in Order to Pay the Usury or Interest on the Loans not to mention all of the Distractions from Reality that they might be Distracted with, which could be Invented by other Lazy Greedy Selfish Moneygrubbers, Liars, Actors, and Colorful Snakes, who Do almost nothing; but they Collect much Money for it, such as a million Dollars for a one-half-hour Political Speech, which does not even present one Reasonable Solution for anything!5 Now, you can Understand a little more about the Interest Slavery System of the Evil Empire, which does not have to 5 See my Website for my Free Booklet, called: Distractions from Reality! 13 The HISTORY of MONEY! Conquer other Lands by Means of Armies, in Order to get their Subservience; but they merely have to Conquer them Financially or Monetarily, in Order to make them into their Interest Slaves, which Bankers the World over have now done to almost all of their Citizens: because of their Great Love and Compassion for their Poor Hardworking Souls! †§‡§§6 Yes, I am being very Sarcastic: because, if those Bankers and Money Lenders were so Generous, Helpful, Kind, Loving, and Understanding, they would not Loan any Money for doing anything WRong; but only for Doing GOOD Works, which would Endure the Test of Time.7 For Example, the Romans could have made BAMBOO Aqueducts, rather than STONE Aqueducts; but the BamBOO would have Rotted away long ago, and there would be no Evidence that those Romans moved a Finger in Order to DO anything! However, they Built more than Aqueducts, and left Tunnels through Mountains that are still being Used, Today, for Highways. Therefore, they had a Better Understanding of Accumulative Wealth than most Americans, who never even Heard of those Words! Indeed, you could go all of the way through the School of Fools, and even Graduate from the Universal College of almost Worthless knowledge, and never Hear about ACCUMULATIVE WEALTH: beCause someone might get the Idea that some of those Squirrelly Bankers should be HUNG for their High Crimes, for which we have MUCH Historical PROOF! However, you have never Heard 6 See my Website for my Free Booklet, called: Justification of Symbols, Creatures, and Characters! 7 See my Website for The Swangkee Brothers’ 98% Rock Houses, which have Paint-proof Marble-faced Walls, Onyx-faced Floors, Agate Windows, and 120-tons of Colorful Fireproof Rocks in the Ceilings, which are covered up with 400 tons of Dirt and Sand, which is covered up with a foot of Insulation that is Sealed in Heavy Rubber, which is covered up with 700 Concrete Pavers that are 2 feet square, which are covered up with 150 tons of Colorful Rocks, making the Houses Hail-proof, Siding-proof, Paint-proof, Termite-proof, Mouse-proof, Insurance-proof, Self-air-conditioned to some Degree, and a Banker’s Nightmare: because Mr. Friendly Banker cannot figure out HOW to get our Houses Destroyed, except to Invite someone to go to WAR with US! 14 The HISTORY of MONEY! of a TRIAL for Wicked Bankers, who were brought to Court for Betraying our Trust in them, who have Indirectly Caused all Kinds of Sicknesses, Diseases, Divorces, Heartaches, Loneliness, and even WARS, without giving to us an Account for it: beCause they CONTROL that Wicked Federal Government, which is now more than 44 TRILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT to those Greedy Bankers! (See Bill Moyer’s Report on PBS for the PROOF!) In Fact, if it were not for those Loving Red Jew Bankers, we would not have gotten into a War in IRAQ: because those same Bankers could have just as easily have Loaned to us Enough Money in Order to Energize ourselves by Means of SOLAR POWER and WIND POWER: beCause we have an ABUNDANCE of Sunlight and Wind, for FREE Energy! In Fact, we could have Taxed ourselves in Order to Build Wind Generators and Solar Electric Collectors, rather than Tax ourselves in Order to Build $2,000,000 Obsolete Army Tanks, and $40,000,000 Obsolete Jet Bombers, and those Wind Generators would still be Filling the Coffers of the Treasury DEPARTment; but what is to be Gained by Wasting such an Enormous Amount of Time, Money, Materials, and Energy on WAR GAMES, when we could be providing a Way for all People to become Moderately Rich, Worldwide, so that no one has any Interest in going to War anymore? Indeed, we have hundreds of thousands of MOUNTAINS of ROCKS, which we could Use WISELY in Order to Build all Kinds of Beautiful Planned City States, called: $wangkee Hotels, Castles, and Fortresses!, which just Happen to have more than 248 Good Reasons and Great Advantages for Building them and Living within the Borders of them! Moreover, rather than Tax ourselves in Order to Hire Potential Murderous Soldiers to do Jumping Jacks and Squat Benders, we could Organize Seven Great Swangkee Armies of WORKING Soldiers, and put them to Work on something Constructive and Beneficial for ALL of US! Yes, by Building such Beautiful Planned City States, we would not even Need nor Want those STINKING Abominable Gas-hog Automobiles, Diesel Trucks, Polluting Busses, Dangerous Airplanes, and all that is 15 The HISTORY of MONEY! Associated with Bankers and their Evil Empire of Capitalist HOGS: beCause we would all be Moderately RICH with $wangkee Palaces!8 (See my Website for my Free Booklet, called: How GOOD are CARS??, which will make all Professing “Christians,” who Drive Abominations, very Em-BARE-assed!) Therefore, in Order to Strengthen our Faith in the GOODNESS of Truth and Wisdom, let us now Study some more of the HISTORY of MONEY! Chapter 2 The Poor get Poorer and the Rich get Richer! Now, as you have no doubt Understood from the above Chapter, the Poor Honest Hardworking Woodsman would Naturally get Poorer and POORER, while the Money Lender or Banker would Naturally get Richer and RICHER, for which we have much Physical Evidence in this World of Woes: because we have HUGE Bank Buildings within Earshot of Poor Shanty Towns in Africa, South America, and even within the Great Divided States of United LIES! Yes, just OPEN your EYEBALLS and LOOK, my Friend, and what do you SEE in that City of Confusion, where SKYSCRAPERS fill the Horizon, where Bankers and Money Lenders sit is Plush Orifices, Patiently Waiting for more Suckers to Knock on their Doors: because they are Exactly like that Signpost that reads: FOX & CROW 8 See my Website for my Free Books, called: How GOOD is CAPITALISM??, A List of the EVILS of CAPITALISM! Volumes 1 & 2, What does it Mean to PROSPER??, plus: Can Bankers be Trusted?? 16 The HISTORY of MONEY! MONEY to LOAN! Yes, Poor Ignorant Innocent Johnny B. Good comes into their Offices, anywhere in the World, Looking for Money to Loan, and he Falls Headlong into their Deep Dark MYSTERIOUS Money PIT, where he gets STUCK in the TAR PIT of CAPITALISM, which Requires MUCH Money just to Do anything other than Rent a Wooden Shanty, and try to Live on Overripe Bananas, Boiled Beans, and Fried Potatoes, while Trying to Maintain a Boring JOB in the Noisy Pollution Factory of INSANITY, which can now Produce Machines that do the Work of 10,000 People or more, and yet he is still Living in a SHANTY, in a WOODEN HUT, you might say: because he cannot Afford CONCRETE and STEEL, much less Marble and Granite! Indeed, Poor Johnny B. Good must go into DEBT for $200,000,9 just to have a Decent House with running Water, Electricity, and COCKROACHES, which somehow Discover HOW to Live between those Inner Walls of the Firetrap House, which might also Burn up his Children after he comes Home DRUNK: beCause of Attempting to FORGET all of his BURDENSOME DEBTS, or at least Smother them out with a Bottle of Jim Bean or Jack Daniel’s Whiskey, if Beer Fails to Accomplish that Task. In other Words, Poor Johnny B. Good often becomes FRUSTRATED and ANGRY: because of his Minimum Wages; but he has no Idea WHO is to be Blamed for his Problems: because he does not like to Read Books, since they only Remind him of his Problems, which Depresses him even more than he already was! Yes, he HATES to Read Books: because, after reading the TRASH Literature in the Public School of Insane FOOLS, he is more Turned On by SEX, Violent Movies, War Games, or just anything that is more EXCITING than Truth and Wisdom. Therefore, he must Suffer for his Ignorance. (See my Website for my Free 9 NOTE: If you Borrow enough Money in Order to Buy the Average American Firetrap Mouse-infested Cockroach Den, which Costs $150,000, you may easily Pay as much as $400,000 when the Interest is Added on during a Period of 40 Years, which makes me want to Run to the Bank and Borrow that Money right NOW, just to Guarantee my Future HAPPINESS! I speak as a FOOL! 17 The HISTORY of MONEY! Booklet, called: Is Ignorance Bliss??, which Proves that it is NOT!) However, can any Child be Blamed for his Ignorance, since it is supposed to be the DUTY of that School of Fools to TEACH Truth and Wisdom to him or her? (See my Website for my Free Booklet, called: Do People Need to go to School in Order to get a Good Education??, followed by: WHY were we BORN??) Indeed, we are told that Education is MANDATORY, and that every Child MUST LEARN his or her ABC’s, with NO Exceptions: beCause we Americans supposedly HATE Poverty, Crime, Sicknesses, Diseases, Prisons, Drugs, WARS, and all that one might Associate with an EVIL Empire! However, in Reality, we are like that Woodsman who CURSED the Money Lender under his Breath, while Praising him to his Face: because we are not being Perfectly HONEST with ourselves and others. No, we cannot now AFFORD to be Perfectly Honest: because we might all Lose our Jobs!10 For Example, if we Confessed that SOLAR, WIND, and MUSCLE POWER are more Practical than Burning Coal, Gas, Oil, and Alcohol; and a million times more Innocent and Pure than using Atomic Power Plants with Radioactive Dung that has a Deadly Half-life of 4.5 BILLION Years, we might put those Car Manufacturers OUT of Business, and thus put ourselves OUT of Business by putting ourselves OUT of WORK! (See my Website for my Free Booklets, called: How GOOD are CARS??, Why Buy any more TRASH??, and: $wangkee Solar Electric Power Plants!) Yes, there is a Graveyard Danger lying about like a Poisonous Snake in the Grass, which might easily Spring UP and BITE US in the Buttocks, if we should Squat and Dung on the Head of Capitalism, which is Controlled by those Greedy Bankers, who Control the MONEY SUPPLY. Therefore, let us STUDY our 10 See my Website for my Free Booklet, called: Looking for a JOB! 18 The HISTORY of MONEY! History Books, in Order to Learn HOW it all came about: because it is a very Interesting Subject, which will have a very DRAMATIC End: beCause BABYLON WILL FALL! Yes, the Book of Revelation has it written Correctly, and you had better Believe it for your own Sake: because you could possibly be one of the FOOLS who Lives UNDER one of those Skyscrapers, who gets GROUND TO POWDER when they come CRASHING DOWN! (See Isaiah 2, King James Version, KJV.) Yes, it will STINK much WORSE than any “Peacock Droppings,” or Political Donkey Dung and Elephant Patties: because it is SYMBOLIZED by the World Trade Center in New Yuck City, which was a Real Living HELL on Earth!11 Indeed, if you Question whether or not the Divided States of United Lies can CRASH, and that the Great FALSE Economy can FAIL, you should take Good Heed to the HISTORY Books, my Friend: beCause History REPEATS ITSELF! In Fact, all Evil Empires of all Kinds, including those of Egypt, Babylon, Athens, and Rome, Imagined that they were Invincible or Unconquerable; but behold, they ALL CRASHED: beCause of the Rejection of TRUTH! (See my Website for my Free Booklet, called: What is The GREATEST SIN??) Now, you can easily Understand how the Woodsman Desperately Needed some Work to Do, and the Tool Renter had the Correct Tool for Doing that Work; but the Banker Controlled the Money that made it all Possible, even thousands of Years ago: because it did not Require much Time for them to Learn Bankercraft, since the Bible and all Honest Preachers have always Spoken AGAINST Usury, or Charging Interest on Loans to Poor People: because it only makes them more Poorer than they already are. See Exodus 22: 25 27, and Leviticus 25: 35 43, which read as follows in the New King James Version (NKJV): "If you lend money to any of My people who are poor among you, you See my Website for my Free Booklets, called: One Nation America 11 Remembers September 11!, and: WHERE is HELL?? 19 The HISTORY of MONEY! shall not be like a moneylender to him; you shall not charge him interest. 26. "If you ever take your neighbor's garment as a pledge, you shall return it to him before the sun goes down. 27. "For that is his only covering, it is his garment for his skin. What will he sleep in? And it will be that when he cries to Me, I will hear, for I am gracious. `And if one of your brethren becomes poor, and falls into poverty among you, then you shall help him, like a stranger or a sojourner, that he may live with you. 36. `Take no usury or interest from him; but fear your God, that your brother may live with you. 37. `You shall not lend him your money for usury, nor lend him your food at a profit. 38. `I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan and to be your God. 39. `And if one of your brethren who dwells by you becomes poor, and sells himself to you, you shall not compel him to serve as a slave. 40. `But as a hired servant and a sojourner he shall be with you, and shall serve you until the Year of Jubilee. 41. `And then he shall depart from you, both he and his children with him, and shall return to his own family; he shall return to the possession of his fathers. 42. `For they are My servants, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt; they shall not be sold as slaves. 43. `You shall not rule over him with rigor, but you shall fear your God. Now, when the Woodsman cuts down a Tree, and it provides Work for himself, his Mule, the Lumberjacks at the Sawmill, the Carpenters who use the Lumber, the Nail Manufacturers, the Glassmakers, the Stonemasons, the Plumbers, and whomever is Involved in the House-building Industry, the 20 The HISTORY of MONEY! Money that was Loaned to all of those People is Represented by the End Products of their Labors such as those Houses, which makes that Money of some Value; but not very much Value: because those Houses are DOOMED by Nature, since they are Guaranteed to ROT DOWN, BURN UP, BLOW AWAY, GET EATEN UP BY TERMITES, or be Destroyed in some other Way: because they are not Built like Bank Buildings, which are made of Concrete, Steel, Granite, and Marble! Therefore, the Banker can Accumulate Wealth: because his Buildings Endure the Test of Time; but his Interest Slaves cannot Accumulate anything but TRASH: because it is all Designed to end up in the TRASH DUMP!12 Indeed, it would not be Profitable for Bankers to put themselves OUT of Business, by Loaning Money in Order that we Interest Slaves might Build GOOD Houses, which are even much Better than the Swangkee Brothers’ 98% Rock Houses: because Bankers THRIVE on our IGNORANCE. In Fact, True Knowledge is very DANGEROUS to most Bankers: because it is a Great THREAT to their Evil Empire, and especially when you come to Understand what a RIGHTEOUS GovernMint does for its Necessary Money! Yes, I will Reveal that Information later on, after we have Learned more about … 12 See my Website for my Free Booklet, called: Why Buy any more TRASH?? 21 The HISTORY of MONEY! Chapter 3 The History of Money "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 money and its issuance." President James Madison “Money, money, money, it has always just been there,” right? Wrong, it has not always been there: because Adam and Eve did not Use it; but you can be Certain that Cain and Abel used it: because it was for more GAIN that Cain Murdered Abel. (See The Book of MOSES for the Proof!) “Obviously it is Issued by the Government in Order to make it easy for us to Exchange Things.” Wrong again! It is Issued by Bankers. The Truth is that most People do not Realize that the Issuing of Money is essentially a Private Business, and that the Privilege of Issuing Money has been a major Bone of Contention throughout History. Wars have been Fought, and Depressions have been Caused in the Battle over who Issues the Money. However, the Majority of us are not Aware of that, and it is largely due to the Fact that the Winning Side became and increasingly continues to be a vital and Respected Member of our Global Society, having an Influence over large aspects of our Lives including our Education, our Media and our Governments. While we might feel Powerless in the Process of Trying to stop the Manipulation of Money for Private Profit at our Expense, it is easy to Forget that we collectively give to Money its Value, whether or 22 The HISTORY of MONEY! not that Value is Real. We have been Taught to Believe that Printed Pieces of Paper have Special Value, and because we know that other People also Believe that too, we are Willing to Work for all our Lives in Order to get what we are now Convinced that others will Want; and they do Want it: because it can be Used in Order to Buy the Things that they Want. However, an Honest Look at History will show to us how that our Innocent Trust has been Misused and Abused. Let's start our exploration of money with: JESUS FLIPS OUT (many coins) 33 A.D. Jesus was so Upset by the Sight of the Money Changers in the Temple, that he waded in and started to tip over the Tables and to Drive them out with a Whip, that being the one and only time we ever hear of him using Force during his entire Ministry. So what caused the Ultimate Pacifist to become so Aggressive? For a long time the Jews had been called upon in Order to Pay their Temple Tax with a Special Coin called the Half Shekel. It was a measured half ounce of pure Silver with no Image of a Pagan Emperor on it: because the Jews Believed the Second Commandment, and took it Literally. It was to them the only Coin that was Acceptable to God. However, because there was only a limited number of those Coins in Circulation, the Money Changers were in a Buyers Market; and, like with anything else in Short Supply, they were able to raise the Price to whatever the Market would bear. Therefore, they made huge Profits with their Monopoly on those Coins, and turned that Time of Devotion into a Mockery for Profit. However, Jesus saw it as Stealing from the People, and proclaimed the whole setup to be “A Den of Thieves.” See Matthew 21, Mark 11, and Luke 19, for the Details. However, once that Money is 23 The HISTORY of MONEY! Accepted as a Form of Exchange, those People who Produce, Loan out, and Manipulate the Quantity of Money are obviously in a very Strong Position. They are the now Famous “Money Changers.” MEDIEVAL ENGLAND (1000 1100 A.D.) Here we find Goldsmith's Offering to keep other People's Gold and Silver in Safe Places in their own Vaults; and in Exchange for their Silver and Gold, the People walk away with Receipts for what they have left the Safes. Moreover, those Paper Receipts soon became Popular for Trade, since they were less heavy to carry around than Silver and Gold Coins. For Example, a small Bag of Gold Coins as large as a normal Cup might weigh as much as 20 to 30 Pounds! However, after a while, the Goldsmith's must have noticed that only a small percentage of their Depositor's ever came into the Bank in Order to demand their Gold at any one Time. So, the Goldsmith’s cleverly made out some Receipts for Gold that did not even Exist, and then they Loaned it out in Order to Earn Interest that is, in Order to EARN Money without Working for it! Indeed, with a Nod and a Wink amongst themselves, they Incorporated that Foul Practice into the Banking System. Yes, they even gave to it a Respectable Name, in Order to make it seem more Acceptable, christening the practice “Fractional Reserve Banking,” which Translates to mean, in Plain English, “Lending out many times more Money than you have Assets on Deposit in Order to Represent that Money.” For Example, even Today, Bankers are Legally Allowed to Loan out at least TEN TIMES the Amount of Money that they are Actually Holding within their SAFES, for Safe Keeping for YOU, that is. Meanwhile, you might be Wondering just how that they get Rich by Charging you 11% interest, which is not 11% a Year that 24 The HISTORY of MONEY! they make on that Amount of Money; but it is Actually 110%: because of that Fractional RESERVE Banking Business! THE TALLY STICKS (1100 1854) King Henry the First produced Sticks of Polished Wood, with Notches cut along one edge in Order to Signify the Denominations. The Stick was then split full length so each piece still had a record of the Notches. The King kept one half for Proof against Counterfeiting, and then spent the other half into the Market Place, where it would continue to Circulate as Real Money. In Fact, because only Tally Sticks were Accepted by Henry for Payment of Taxes, there was a built-in Demand for them, which gave Confidence to People in Order to Accept those Sticks as Real Money, even though the Sticks had no Real Value, except perhaps to Warm up a Person’s Fingers if one should light them on Fire, since it is Impossible to Build a Practical House with such Sticks, nor even Build a Strong Wall that might hold in Stampeding Bull. However, he could have used anything other than Sticks, so long as the Masses of People Agreed that it had Value; and his willingness to Accept those Sticks as Legal Tender made it easy for the People to Agree, since he was the King. Nevertheless, Money is only as Valuable as Peoples Faith in it, and without that Faith even Today's Money is just Worthless Paper that is, except for Warming your Fingers and Toes after lighting it on Fire during a very Cold Winter that is, during a Time of Great Inflation, whereby one might Buy a Loaf of Bread with a Wheelbarrow full of Money, as it was in Germany before Adolf Hitler got into Control of the Money Supply. The Tally Stick System worked really well for 726 years! Indeed, it was the most Successful Form of Currency in recent History; and 25 The HISTORY of MONEY! the British Empire was actually built under the Tally Stick System, but how is it that most of us are not aware of its Existence? Perhaps the Answer to that Important Question is found in the Fact that in 1694, when the Bank of England was first Formed, it Attacked the Tally Stick System, giving to us a Clue as to why most of us have never Heard of those Sticks. They no doubt Realized that it was Money that was Outside of the Power and Control of the Money Changers, (the very thing King Henry had Intended by making those Tally Sticks!). Indeed, what better way could there be in Order to Eliminate the Vital Faith that People had in that Rival Currency, than to pretend that it simply never Existed and therefore not discuss it? That seems to be what happened when the first Shareholder's in the Bank of England bought their Original Shares with Notched Pieces of Wood and then Retired that System. You heard Correctly, they Bought Shares. Indeed, the Bank of England is a Privately Owned Bank, which was actually set up by Investors Buying Shares. Those Investors, who's Names were kept Secret, were meant to invest one and a quarter million British Pounds; but only three quarters of a million was received when it was chartered in 1694. Therefore, it then began to lend out many times more than it had in Reserve, collecting interest on the whole lot. However, that is not something that you could just Impose on People without some Preparation. Indeed, the Money Changers needed to created the Right Climate in Order to make the Formation of that Private concern seem to be Acceptable. Here is how they did it. With King Henry VIII relaxing the Usury Laws in the 1500's, the Money Changers Flooded the Market with their Gold and Silver Coins, becoming Richer by the minute. Indeed, the English Revolution of 1642 was Financed by the Money Changers, who were backing Oliver Cromwell's successful attempt to Purge the 26 The HISTORY of MONEY! Parliament and kill King Charles. What followed was 50 years of Costly Wars Costly to those Brave Young Men who were Fighting them, and Profitable to those Greedy Bankers who were Financing them. In Fact, they were so Profitable that it allowed the Money Changers to take over a square mile of Precious Property, which is still known as the City of London, which remains one of the three main Financial Centers in the World, today. The 50 Years of War left England, itself, in Financial Ruin. Therefore, the Government Officials went Begging for Loans from guess who the Private Bankers; and the Deal that was Proposed Resulted with a Government Sanctioned, Privately Owned Bank, which could Produce Money from nothing, essentially Legally Counterfeiting a National Currency for Private Gain. (Remember, that Privately Owned Bank was and still is known as The Bank of England, only later we will study legislation, which gave the general Public the Impression that the Bank was Nationalized, while continuing to provide Dividends to its Shareholders and continuing to increase its Independent Resources.) Now the politicians had a Source from which to Borrow all of the Money that they Wanted to Borrow, and the Debt that was Created was Secured by Public Tax Money: because the Burden of Debts falls upon the Tax Slaves, who must either Pay or else go to Prison, where they are Supported by other Tax Slaves! However, you would think that someone in some Country would have seen through that Scheme, and would have Realized that they could produce their own Money and owe no Interest at all; but behold, instead of that, the Bank of England has been used as a Financial Model for all Countries to Imitate; and now nearly every Nation has a Central Bank which is Privately Controlled: because the Model Works well for them, also. Indeed, those Central Banks 27 The HISTORY of MONEY! have the Power to take over a Nations Economy and become that Nations Real Governing Force: beCause they Control the Money Supply. Therefore, what we have here is a Masterful Scam of Mammoth Proportions, covering what is actually a Hidden Tax, being Collected by Private Concerns for their own Enrichment. For Example, the Country Sells Bonds to the Bank in return for Money that it cannot raise in Taxes: because it would Bankrupt most of the Businesses, which are already Straining themselves to keep from Drowning in the Flood of Taxes. Moreover, the Bonds are Paid for by Money that was Produced from thin Air, you might say. Indeed, the Government Pays Interest on the Money that it Borrowed by Borrowing more Money in the same Way. Therefore, there is no Way that such a Debt can ever be Paid Off: because the Debt has, and will continue, to increase. However, even if the government did find a Way to Pay Off the Debt, the Result would be that there would be no Bonds in Order to Represent or Back up the Currency. Therefore, to Pay Off the Debt would be to Kill the Currency; or, to put it another Way, to Pay Off the Debt would be to Kill the Goose that Laid the Golden Egg, which is only Golden in the Eyes of the Fools who do not Realize that there is NO Golden Egg: because the Goose is FALSE, being a False Economic and Monetary System, which has little or nothing of True Value in Order to Represent its Currency. However, with its Formation of the Bank of England, not-so-Great Great Britain was soon Flooded Britain with Phony Money. Indeed, with no Quality Control and no Insistence on True Value for Money, the Prices doubled, with Money being thrown around in every direction. In Fact, one Enterprising Company was even Offering to drain the Red Sea, in Order to find Egyptian Gold, which was supposedly Lost when the Sea closed in on their pursuit of Moses and the Children of Israel as if Pharaoh and his Army had taken all of the Gold of Egypt with them into the Sea of Reeds, when their Objective was to Recover the Gold and Jewelry that the 28 The HISTORY of MONEY! Children of Israel had taken from them before they left Egypt, when they Borrowed all that they could from them in Order to Spoil them! Therefore, by1698, the National Debt expanded from £1,250,000 to £16,000,000 and up went the Taxes that the Debt was Secured on. Therefore, as Difficult as it might be to Believe, during Times of Economic Upheaval, such Wealth is rarely destroyed; but instead, it is often only Transferred. And who Benefits the most when Money is Scarce? You may have guessed it it is those Wily Bankers. Indeed, it is that Group of People who Control what everyone else Wants, and Needs; but cannot ever get Enough of in Order to Truly Prosper, which the Money Changer's are in Charge of: because they Control the Money Supply. Therefore, when the Majority of People are Suffering through Economic Depression, you can be sure that a Minority of People are continuing to get Richer and RICHER: because they have figured out how to take Advantage of all such Situations, which they often Create by their own Maneuverings. However, even today the Bank of England expresses its Determination to Prevent the Ups and Downs of Booms and Depressions, yet there have been nothing but Ups and Downs since its Formation with the British Pound rarely being Stable: because, if it were Stable, certain People might not Prosper so much. Indeed, one thing has been Stable and that is the Growing Fortune of: THE ROTHSCHILDS (1743) An Enterprising Red Jew Goldsmith named Amshall Moses Bower opened a Counting House in Frankfurt Germany in 1743. He placed a Roman Eagle on a Red Shield over the Door, prompting People to call his Shop the Red Shield Firm, pronounced in 29 The HISTORY of MONEY! German as "Rothschild." His Son later Changed his Name to Rothschild when he Inherited the Business. Loaning Money to Individual Persons was all Well and Good; but he soon found it much more Profitable to Loan Money to Governments and Kings: because it always involved much bigger Amounts, and was always Secured from Public Taxes. Once he got the hang of things, he set his Sights on the whole World, by Training his five Sons in the Art of Money Creation, before sending them out to the Major Financial Centers of the World in Order to Create and Dominate the Central Banking Systems. J. P. Morgan was thought by many to be the Richest Man in the World during the Second World War; but upon his Death it was Discovered that he was merely a Lieutenant within the Rothschild Empire, owning only 19% of the J. P. Morgan Companies. "There is but one power in Europe and that is Rothschild," wrote a 19th century French Commentator. (See Niall Ferguson, THE HOUSE OF ROTHSCHILD, Money's Prophets, 1798 1848.) Therefore, we will Explore a little more about the Richest Family a little later, after we have had a look at: THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION (1764 1781) By the mid 1700's Britain was at its Height of Power, but was also Heavily in Debt, being much like America, Today, which is more than 44 Trillion Dollars in Debt to those Squirrelly Bankers, who have gone out of Risky Limbs in Order to Loan Money to them. Since the creation of the Bank of England, they had Suffered 4 30 The HISTORY of MONEY! Costly Wars and the Total Debt now stood at £140,000,000, (which in those days was a lot of money). However, in Order to make their Interest Payments to the Bank, the British Government set about a Program in Order to try to raise Revenues from their American Colonies, largely through an extensive Program of Taxation. However, there was a Shortage of Material for Minting Coins in the Colonies, so they began to Print their own Paper Money, which they called Colonial Script. That provided a very Successful Means of Exchange and also gave to the Colonies a Sense of Identity. Indeed, Colonial Script was Money provided in Order to help the Exchange of Goods. It was Debt Free Paper Money, not Backed up or Represented by Gold nor Silver. During a visit to Britain in 1763, a certain Member of the Bank of England asked Benjamin Franklin how he would account for the new found Prosperity in the Colonies. Franklin replied, "That is simple. In the colonies we issue our own money. It is called Colonial Script. We issue it in proper proportion to the demands of trade and industry to make the products pass easily from the producers to the consumers. In this manner, creating for ourselves our own paper money, we control its purchasing power, and we have no interest to pay to no one." Benjamin Franklin (See Unrobing the Ghosts of Wall Street by Congressman Charles G. Binderup of Nebraska.) America had learned that the People's Confidence in the Currency was all they needed, and they could be Free of Borrowing Debts. That would mean being Free of the Bank of England. But, in Response, the World's most Powerful Independent, Privately- owned Bank used its influence on the British Parliament in Order to press for the Passing of the Currency Act of 1764. 31 The HISTORY of MONEY! That Clever Act made it Illegal for the Colonies to Print their own Money, and Forced them to Pay all Future Taxes to Britain in Silver or Gold. Here is what Franklin said after that. "In one year, the conditions were so reversed that the era of prosperity ended, and a depression set in, to such an extent that the streets of the Colonies were filled with unemployed." Benjamin Franklin "The colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been that England took away from the colonies their money, which created unemployment and dissatisfaction. The inability of the colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of George III and the international bankers was the PRIME reason for the Revolutionary War." Benjamin Franklin's autobiography Therefore, by the Time that the War began on 19th April, 1775, much of the Gold and Silver had been taken by British Taxation. Therefore, they were left with no other choice but to Print Money in Order to Finance the War. What is very Interesting here is that Colonial Script was actually working so Well, that it became a Threat to the Established False Economic System of the Time. Yes, the Idea of Issuing Money as Franklin put it "in proper proportion to the demands of trade and industry" and not charging any Interest, was not causing any Problems nor Inflation. That Unfortunately was Alien to the Bank of England, which only Issued Money for the sake of making a Profit for its Shareholder's. THE BANK OF NORTH AMERICA (1781 1785) “If you cannot Beat them, then Join them,” might well have been his argument when Arms Dealer, Robert Morris, suggested that he 32 The HISTORY of MONEY! should be Allowed to set up a Bank-of-England-style Central Bank in the USA, in 1781. Desperate for money, the $400,000 he proposed to Deposit, in Order to Allow him to Loan out many times that much Money through Fractional Reserve Banking, must have looked really Attractive to the Impoverished American Government. Already Spending the Money that they would be Loaned, no one made a Fuss when Robert Morris could not raise the Deposit, and instead suggested that he might use some Gold, which had been Loaned to America from France. Once in Power, he simply used Fractional Reserve Banking, and with the Bank’s Growing Fortune he Loaned to himself, and to his Friends the Necessary Money in Order to Buy up all of the Remaining Shares! Then the Bank began to Loan out Money that was Multiplied by this new Mysterious Amount to Eager Politicians, who were probably too Drunk with the newly acquired 'power cash' to notice or care how it was done. After all, the Subject of the Creation of Money was not exactly the most Important Thing on their Minds during that Time, even as it is not NOW the most Important Thing on the Minds of Poor Americans and Britons, who have probably not given to it even 5 Minutes of Serious Thought: because their Minds are too Distracted by Ball Games, Eating, Drinking, Comedies, and Sex. The Scam lasted 5 Years, until in 1785, with the Value of American Money dropping like a Lead Balloon, which had been Blown up by Hope. The Banks Charter did not get Renewed. The Shareholder's walking off with the Interest did not go Unnoticed by the Governor, however. He said, "The rich will strive to establish their dominion and enslave the rest. They always did. They always will... They will have the same effect here as elsewhere, if we do not, by (the power of) government, keep 33 The HISTORY of MONEY! them in their proper spheres." Governor Morris (See, THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION OF 1787, 7/2.) FIRST BANK OF THE UNITED STATES (1791 1811) It worked once, it will work again. It has been six years. There are a lot of new Hungry Politicians. “Let's give it a try.” And so there it was, in 1791, the First Bank of the United States (BUS). It was not only Deceptively Named, in Order to Sound Official; but also in Order to take Attention away from the Real First Bank, which had been shut down. Its Initials (BUS), however, gave a clear indication that Americans were once again being taken for a Ride. And true to its British Model, the Name of the Investors was never Revealed. Having gotten away with it a second time, some of them probably wished Amshall Rothschild had picked a different time to make his pronouncement from his Private Central Bank in Frankfurt. He said: "Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who writes the laws." Mayer Amschel Rothschild, 1790. Not to worry, no one was Listening, the American Government Borrowed 8.2 million Dollars from the Bank in the first 5 years and Prices rose by 72%. This time around the Money Changers had Learned their Lesson, they had Guaranteed a twenty year Charter. The president, who could see an ever-increasing Debt, with no chance of ever Paying back the Debt, had this to say: "I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our Constitution taking from the federal government their power of borrowing." Thomas Jefferson, 1798 While the Independent Press, who had not been bought off yet, called the Scam "a great swindle, a vulture, a viper, and a cobra." 34 The HISTORY of MONEY! As with the Real First Bank, the Government had been the only Depositor to put up any Real Money, with the remainder being raised from Loans that the Investors had made to each other, using the Magic of Fractional Reserve Banking. When time came for the Renewal of the Charter, the Bankers were Warning of Bad Times ahead if they did not get what they Wanted. The Charter was not Renewed. Five month later Britain had attacked America and started the War of 1812. Meanwhile a short time earlier, an Independent Rothschild Business, the Bank of France, was being looked upon with Suspicion by none other than: NAPOLEON (1803 1825) Indeed, he did not Trust the Bank, either, saying: "When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes... Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain." Napoleon Bonaparte, 1815. For both Sides of a War to be Loaned Money from the same Privately Owned Central Bank is not unusual. Nothing Generates Debt like going to War. A Nation will Borrow any Amount of Money in Order to Win. So, naturally, if the Loser is kept going to the Last Straw in a Vain Hope of Winning, then the more Resources will be Used up by the Winning Side before their Victory is Obtained, and more Resources will be Used up, more Loans taken out, more Money made by the Bankers; and even more Amazing, the Loans are usually given on Condition that the Victor Pays the Debts that are left by the Loser! In 1803, instead of Borrowing from the Bank, Napoleon Sold Territory that was West of the Mississippi River to the 3rd 35 The HISTORY of MONEY! President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson, for a mere 3 million dollars in Gold, which was Big Money during those Days; being a Deal known as the Louisiana Purchase. Three million Dollars Richer, Napoleon quickly gathered together an Army and set about conquering much of Europe. Each place he went to, Napoleon found his opposition being Financed by the Bank of England, making Huge Profits as Prussia, Austria and finally Russia all went heavily into Debt trying to stop him. Four years later, with the main French Army in Russia, Nathan Rothschild took charge of a bold plan to smuggle a Shipment of Gold through France in Order to Finance an Attack by the Duke of Wellington from Spain! Wellington's Attack from the South and other Defeats eventually forced Napoleon to Abdicate. He was exiled to Elba, an Island off the coast of Italy. However in 1815 he Escaped from exile and returned to Paris. The French Soldiers who were sent out in Order to Capture him, instead Rallied around their old Leader! By March of that Year, Napoleon had equipped an Army with the help of Borrowed Money from the Eubard Banking House of Paris. With 74,000 French Troops led by Napoleon, sizing up to meet 67,000 British and other European Troops 200 miles NE of Paris on June 18th 1815, it was a difficult one to call. Back in London, the Real Potential Winner, Nathan Rothschild, was poised to strike in a Bold Plan in Order to take Control of the British Stock Market, the Bond Market, and possibly even the Bank of England. Nathan, knowing that Information is Power, stationed his trusted agent named Rothworth near the battle field. As soon as the battle was over, Rothworth quickly returned to London, delivering the news to Rothschild 24 hours ahead of Wellington's Courier. A 36 The HISTORY of MONEY! Victory by Napoleon would have Devastated Britain's Financial System. Nathan stationed himself in his usual place next to an ancient pillar in the Stock Market. This Powerful Man was not without Observers as he hung his Head with Sadness, and began openly to Sell huge numbers of British Government Bonds. Reading that to mean that Napoleon must have Won the Battle, everyone started to Sell their British Bonds as well. Therefore, the bottom fell out of the Market until you could hardly give the Bonds away. Meanwhile Rothschild began to secretly buy up all the hugely devalued bonds at a fraction of what they were worth a few hours before. In that Sly Way, Nathan Rothschild Captured more in one afternoon than the Combined Forces of Napoleon and Wellington had Captured during their entire Lifetimes! That is, he Captured more Wealth. Chapter 4 More of the History of Money The 19th Century became known as the Age of the Rothschilds when it was estimated that they Controlled half of the World's Wealth. While their Wealth continues to Increase, even Today, they have Managed to Blend into the Background, giving an Impression that their Power has Waned. 37 The HISTORY of MONEY! They only apply the Rothschild Name to a small Fraction of the Companies that they actually Control. Some authors claim that the Rothschilds had not only taken over the Bank of England but they had also in 1816 backed a New Privately-owned Central Bank in America called The Second Bank of The United States, causing huge problems to the American President. ANDREW JACKSON (1828 1836) When the American Congress voted to Renew the Charter of The Second Bank of The United States, Jackson responded by using his veto in Order to Prevent the Renewal Bill from Passing. His Response gives to us an Interesting Insight. "It is not our own citizens only who are to receive the bounty of our government. More than eight millions of the stock of this bank are held by foreigners... is there no danger to our liberty and independence in a bank that in its nature has so little to bind it to our country?... Controlling our currency, receiving our public moneys, and holding thousands of our citizens in dependence... would be more formidable and dangerous than a military power of the enemy. If government would confine itself to equal protection, and, as Heaven does its rains, shower its favor alike on the high and the low, the rich and the poor, it would be an unqualified blessing. In the act before me there seems to be a wide and unnecessary departure from these just principles." Andrew Jackson (See, Andrew Jackson, Veto of the Bank Bill, to the Senate (1832). In 1832 Jackson Ordered the Withdrawal of Government Deposits from the Second Bank and instead had them put into Safe Banks. The Second Banks head, Nicholas Biddle, was quite candid about 38 The HISTORY of MONEY! the Power and Intention of the Bank when he openly Threatened to cause a Depression if the Bank was not Re-chartered, we quote. "Nothing but widespread suffering will produce any effect on Congress... Our only safety is in pursuing a steady course of firm restriction and I have no doubt that such a course will ultimately lead to restoration of the currency and the re- charter of the bank." Nicholas Biddle 1836 By calling Back existing Loans, and by Refusing to Issue new Loans, he did Cause a Massive Depression; but, in 1836, when the Charter ran out, the Second Bank ceased to function. It was then that he made these 2 famous Statements: "The Bank is trying to kill me but I will kill it!" and later "If the American people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system there would be a revolution before morning..." Andrew Jackson When asked what he felt was the greatest achievement of his career, Andrew Jackson replied without hesitation: "I killed the bank!" However we will see this was not the End of Private Financial Influence passing itself off as Official when we look at... ABRAHAM LINCOLN and THE CIVIL WAR (1861 1865) With the Central Bank killed off, Fractional Reserve Banking moved like a Virus through numerous State Chartered Banks instead of Causing the Instability that this Form of Economics thrives on. When People lose their Homes, someone else Wins them for a Fraction of their Worth. Depression is Good News to the Lender; 39 The HISTORY of MONEY! but War Causes even more Debt and Dependency than anything else, so if the Money Changers could not have their Central Bank with a License in Order to Print Money, there would have to be a War. We can see from this quote of the then Chancellor of Germany that Slavery was not the only cause for the American Civil War. "The division of the United States into federations of equal force was decided long before the Civil War by the high financial powers of Europe. These bankers were afraid that the US, if they remained as one block, and as one nation, would attain economic and financial independence, which would upset their financial domination over the world." Otto von Bismark, Chancellor of Germany 1876 On the 12th of April 1861 this Economic War began. Predictably, Lincoln, needing Money in Order to Finance his War effort, went with his Secretary of the Treasury to New York in Order to Apply for the Necessary Loans. The Money Changers wishing the Union to Fail, Offered Loans at 24% to 36%. Lincoln declined the offer. An old Friend of Lincoln's, Colonel Dick Taylor of Chicago, was put in charge of Solving the Problem of how to Finance the War. His solution is recorded as follows. "Just get Congress to pass a bill authorizing the printing of full legal tender treasury notes... and pay your soldiers with them and go ahead and win your war with them also." Colonel Dick Taylor 40 The HISTORY of MONEY! When Lincoln asked if the People of America would accept the Notes, Taylor said: "The people or anyone else will not have any choice in the matter, if you make them full legal tender. They will have the full sanction of the government and be just as good as any money; as Congress is given that express right by the Constitution." Colonel Dick Taylor (See, Lincoln, by Emil Ludwig 1930, containing a letter from Lincoln, also reprinted in Glory to God and the Sucker Democracy A Manuscript Collection of the Letters of Charles H. Lanphier, compiled by Charles C. Patton.) Lincoln Agreed to try that Solution, and consequently Printed 450 million Dollars worth of the New Bills, using Green Ink on the back sides in Order to Distinguish them from other Notes. "The government should create, issue and circulate all the currency and credit needed to satisfy the spending power of the government and the buying power of consumers… The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of Government, but it is the Government's greatest creative opportunity. By the adoption of these principles, the long-felt want for a uniform medium will be satisfied. The taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest, discounts and exchanges. The financing of all public enterprises, the maintenance of stable government and ordered progress, and the conduct of the Treasury will become matters of practical administration. The people can and will be furnished with a currency as safe as their own government. Money will cease to be the master and become the servant of humanity. Democracy will rise superior to the money power." Abraham Lincoln (See, Abraham Lincoln. Senate document 23, Page 91. 1865.) 41 The HISTORY of MONEY! From that we see that the Solution Worked so Well that Lincoln was seriously considering adopting that Emergency Measure as a Permanent Policy. That would have been great for everyone, except for the Money Changers who quickly Realized how Dangerous that Policy would be for them. Indeed, they wasted no time in expressing their view in the London Times. Oddly enough, while the Article seems to have been Designed in Order to Discourage that Creative Financial Policy, in its put down we are clearly able to see the Policy's Goodness. "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." Hazard Circular London Times 1865 From that extract its plain to see that it is the Advantage provided by the adopting of that Policy that poses a Threat to those Countries that are not using it. In 1863, nearly there, Lincoln needed just a bit more Money in Order to Win the War, and seeing him in this vulnerable state, and knowing that the President could not get the Congressional Authority in Order to Issue more Greenbacks, the Money Changers proposed the passing of the National Bank Act. The act went through. From this point on the entire U.S. Money Supply would be created out of Debt by Bankers Buying U.S. Government Bonds and by 42 The HISTORY of MONEY! Issuing them from Reserves for Bank Notes. The Greenbacks continued to be in circulation until 1994, their numbers were not increased but in fact decreased. "In numerous years following the war, the Federal Government ran a heavy surplus. It could not (however) pay off its debt, retire its securities, because to do so meant there would be no bonds to back the national bank notes. To pay off the debt was to destroy the money supply." John Kenneth Galbrath The American False Economy has been based on Government Debt since 1864 and it is locked into that Evil System. Talk of Paying Off the Debt without first Reforming the Banking System is just Talk, and a complete Impossibility: because it would Destroy the Banking System, which is Based on Debts and Interest on Loans. During that same Year, Lincoln had a pleasant surprise. Turns out that the Tsar of Russia, Alexander II, was well Aware of the Money Changers’ Scam. The Tsar was Refusing to Allow them to set up a Central Bank in Russia. If Lincoln could Limit the Power of the Money Changers and Win the War, the Bankers would not be able to split America and hand it back to Britain and France, as planned. The Tsar knew that this handing back would come at a Cost, which would eventually need to be paid back by Attacking Russia, it being clearly in the Money Changers’ Sights. The Tsar declared that if France or Britain gave help to the South, Russia would consider this an Act of War. Britain and France would instead wait in vain to have the Wealth of the Colonies returned to them, and while they waited, Lincoln Won the Civil War. 43 The HISTORY of MONEY! With an Election coming up the next Year, Lincoln himself would wait for renewed public support before reversing the National Bank Act he had been pressured into approving during the War. Lincoln's opposition to the Central Banks Financial Control and a proposed Return to the Gold Standard is well Documented. He would certainly have killed off the National Bank’s Monopoly, had he not been Killed, himself, only 41 days after being Re-elected. The Money Changers were pressing for a Gold Standard because Gold was scarce and easier to have a Monopoly over. Much of this was already waiting in their hands and each Gold Merchant was well aware that what they really had could easily be made to seem like much much more. Silver would only widen the field and lower the Share so they pressed for... THE RETURN OF THE GOLD STANDARD (1866 1881) "Right after the Civil War there was considerable talk about reviving Lincoln's brief experiment with the Constitutional monetary system. Had not the European money-trust intervened, it would have no doubt become an established institution." W. Cleon Skousen. Even after his death, the idea that America might Print its own Debt-free Money set off Warning Bells throughout the entire European Banking Community. On April 12th in 1866, the American congress passed the Contraction Act, allowing the Treasury to call in and retire some 44 The HISTORY of MONEY! of Lincoln's Greenbacks, with only the Banks standing to Gain from that. Indeed, it is not Difficult to work out the Source of that Action. However, in Order to give to the American Public the False Impression that they would be better off under the Gold Standard, the Money Changers used the Control that they had in Order to Cause Economic Instability and to Panic the People. That was fairly easy to do by calling back existing Loans and by Refusing to Issue New ones, a Tried and Proven Method for Causing Financial Depression. They would then spread the word through the Media, which they largely Controlled, that the lack of a single Gold Standard was the Cause of the Hardship which ensued, while all of that Time they were using the Contraction Act in Order to lower the Amount of Money in Circulation. It went from $1.8 billion in Circulation in 1866, allowing $50.46 per person, to $1.3 billion in 1867, allowing $44.00 per person, to $0.6 billion in 1876, making only $14.60 per person and down to $0.4 billion only ten Years later, leaving only $6.67 per person and a continually growing Population. Most People Believe the Economists when they tell us that Recessions and Depressions are part of the Natural Flow; but in Truth, the Money Supply is Controlled by a small Minority who have always done so and will continue to do so if we let them. By 1872, the American public was beginning to feel the Squeeze, so the Bank of England, scheming in the back rooms, sent Ernest Seyd, with lots of Money in Order to bribe Congress into Demonetizing Silver. Ernest drafted the Legislation, himself, which came into law with the passing of the Coinage Act, effectively stopping the Minting of Silver during that Year. Here is what he said about his trip, obviously pleased with himself: 45 The HISTORY of MONEY! "I went to America in the winter of 1872 73, authorized to secure, if I could, the passage of a bill demonetizing silver. It was in the interest of those I represented the governors of the Bank of England to have it done. By 1873, gold coins were the only form of coin money." Ernest Seyd Or, as explained by Senator Daniel of Virginia, "In 1872 silver being demonetized in Germany, England, and Holland, a capital of 100,000 pounds ($500,000.00) was raised, Ernest Seyd was sent to this country with this fund as agent for foreign bond holders to effect the same object (demonetization of silver)." (Senator Daniel of Virginia, May 22, 1890, from a speech in Congress, to be found in the Congressional Record, page 5128, quoting from the Bankers Magazine of August, 1873.) Within three Years, with 30% of the Work Force Unemployed, the American People began to Remember the Good Old Days when the Greenbacks were Backed by Silver and Gold. The U.S. Silver Commission was set up in Order to Study the Problem, and it Responded with Revealing History: "The disaster of the Dark Ages was caused by decreasing money and falling prices... Without money, civilization could not have had a beginning, and with a diminishing supply, it must languish and unless relieved, finally perish. At the Christian era the metallic money of the Roman Empire amounted to $1,800 million. By the end of the fifteenth century it had shrunk to less than $200 million. History records no other such disastrous transition as that from the Roman Empire to the Dark Ages..." United States Silver Commission While they obviously could see the Problems being Caused by the Restricted Money Supply, that declaration did little to help the Problem; and, in 1877, Riots broke out all over the Country. The 46 The HISTORY of MONEY! Bank's Response was to do nothing except to campaign against the Idea that Greenbacks should be Reissued. The American Bankers Association’s Secretary James Buel expressed the Bankers Attitude well in a letter to fellow members of the Association. He wrote: "It is advisable to do all in your power to sustain such prominent daily and weekly newspapers, especially the Agricultural and Religious Press, as will oppose the greenback issue of paper money and that you will also withhold patronage from all applicants who are not willing to oppose the government issue of money. To repeal the Act creating bank notes, or to restore to circulation the government issue of money will be to provide the people with money and will therefore seriously affect our individual profits as bankers and lenders. See your congressman at once and engage him to support our interest that we may control legislation." James Buel American Bankers Association (Taken from a circular issued by authority of the Associated Bankers of New York, Philadelphia, and Boston, signed by one James Buel, secretary, sent out from 247 Broadway, New York in 1877, to the Bankers in all of the States.) What that Statement Exposes is the Difference in Mentality between your Average Person and a Banker. With a Banker, "less really is more" and every Need is an Opportunity for them to Exploit someone. James Garfield became President in 1881, with a firm grasp of where the Problem lay. "Whosoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce... And when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way 47 The HISTORY of MONEY! or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate." James Garfield 1881 Within weeks of releasing that Statement, President Garfield was Assassinated! However, the cry from the streets was to... FREE SILVER (1891 1912) Fleecing of the Flock is the term that the Money Changers use for the Process of Booms and Depressions which make it possible for them to Repossess Property at a Fraction of its Worth. In 1891, a Major Fleece was being Planned. "On Sept 1st, 1894, we will not renew our loans under any consideration. On Sept 1st we will demand our money. We will foreclose and become mortgagees in possession. We can take two-thirds of the farms west of the Mississippi, and thousands of them east of the Mississippi as well, at our own price... Then the farmers will become tenants as in England..." 1891 American Bankers Association as printed in the Congressional Record of April 29, 1913 The continued Gold Standard made that possible. William Jennings Bryan was the Democratic Candidate for President in 1896, Campaigning in Order to bring Silver back as a Money Standard. (free Silver) "We will answer their demand for a gold standard by saying to them: You shall not press down upon the brow of labour this crown of thorns, you shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold." William Jennings Bryan 48 The HISTORY of MONEY! Of course the Money Changers supported his opposition on the Republican Side so long as he wanted the Gold Standard maintained. The Factory Bosses were somehow convinced to tell their Work Force that Business would Close Down if Bryan was Elected, and everyone would Lose their Jobs. The Republicans won by a small margin. Bryan tried again in 1900 and in 1908, but lost both times. He became Secretary of State under Wilson in 1912; but became disenchanted and Resigned in 1915, under suspicious circumstances connected with the sinking of the Lucitania, which drove America into the First World War. J. P. MORGAN and THE CRASH OF 1907 If you want to work out the Cause of the Crash of 1907, checking out who Benefited is where you might like to look first. With the Stock Market slump causing most of the over extended Banks to Falter, in certain Steps, J. P. Morgan offering to save the day. People will do strange things when in a Panic, and this might explain why Morgan was authorized to print $200 million from nothing, which he then used in order to prop things up. Some of the troubled Bankers with less than 1% in Reserve had no choice. It was either Accept that Solution, or go Under. Even if they had worked out that their problems had been Caused by the same People now Offering the Solution, there is not a lot that they could have Done about it. J. P. Morgan was hailed as a Hero, even if only Sarcastically. 49 The HISTORY of MONEY! "All this trouble could be averted if we appointed a committee of six or seven men like J. P. Morgan to handle the affairs of our country." Woodrow Wilson But not everyone was fooled. "Those not favorable to the money trust could be squeezed out of business and the people frightened into demanding changes in the banking and currency laws which the Money Trust would frame." Rep. Charles A. Lindbergh (R-MN) Causing Booms and Busts is a Tried and Proven Method of Raking in Massive Wealth, and what People often Forget when they Lose what they have, is that in the Process someone else has Won it. Apart from making a small number of People Rich at the Expense of the Multitude, in this case the Instability also served for the second purpose of encouraging the Public to Believe that they would be better off living under a Central Bank and a Gold Standard. Desperate People have little Time for Logic. LINCOLN WATCHES In Washington, District of Criminals of the Higher Order, the Statue of Lincoln sitting in his chair is facing toward a building called the Federal Reserve Headquarters. That Institution would not be there if Lincoln had Lived in Order to Finish his second term in Office. The so-called Federal Reserve Bank is not Federal, and it has Doubtful Reserves. The Name is an open Deception, designed to give that Private Bank the Appearance that it is operating in the 50 The HISTORY of MONEY! Public's Interest, when in Fact it is run solely in Order to Gain Private Profit for its Select Stock Holders. It came into being as the result of one of the Slickest Moves in Financial History. On 23rd December 1913, the House of Misrepresentatives had passed the Federal Reserve Act, but it was still having difficulty getting it out of the SINate. Most Members of CONgress had gone Home for the Unholy days, but Unfortunately the Senate had not adjourn sine dei (without day) so they were technically still in session. There were only three members still present. On a unanimous consent voice vote the 1913 Federal Reserve Act was passed. No Objection was made, possibly because there was no one there in Order to Object! However, Charles Lindbergh would have Objected. "The financial system has been turned over to... the federal reserve board. That board administers the finance system by authority of... a purely profiteering group. The system is private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people’s money." Rep Charles A. Lindbergh (R-MN) Moreover, Louis T. McFadden would have Objected. "We have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board... This evil institution has impoverished... the people of the United States... and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through... the corrupt practice of the moneyed vultures who control it." Rep. Louis T, McFadden (R-PA) Furthermore, Barry Goldwater would also have Objected. 51 The HISTORY of MONEY! "Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders... The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates outside the control of Congress and... manipulates the credit of the United States." Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-AZ) Most Americans would also Object, if they Learned the Truth. The Federal Reserve is the largest single Creditor of the United States Government, and they are also the People who decide how much the Average Person’s Car Payments are going to be, what their House Payments are going to be, and whether or not they have a job. The 3 People who passed the Federal Reserve Act in 1913, knew exactly what they were doing when they set up that Private Bank, which was Modeled according to the Bank of England; and the Fact that THE BANK OF ENGLAND had been operating Independently, Unopposed since 1694, must have given to them a great deal of Confidence, indeed. WHERE THERE IS WAR, THERE IS MONEY War uses up more Materials more quickly than most anything else on Earth. During War, Expensive Equipment does not just Wear Out, slowly; but it gets blown up! (It is interesting to note that during the 119-year period from the founding of the Bank of England until Napoleon's Defeat at Waterloo, England had been at War for 56 Years, while the rest of the time they were Preparing for it. In the Process, the Money Changers had been getting Rich: because they Profit from Wars by Loaning more and more Money to both Sides of the Fools who Support them.) 52 The HISTORY of MONEY! So, there it was, the newly formed Federal Reserve poised itself in Order to Produce any Amount of Money that the U.S. Government might need, from thin Air, with each Dollar standing to make a healthy Interest, or Collection of Usury. Indeed, if it is Wrong to Collect Usury from a Poor Person, as the Bible Teaches, it must be many times more Wrong to Collect Interest from a Government that is more than 44 TRILLION Dollars in DEBT! Nine days after its formation, the Federal Reserve founders were wishing each other a Happy New Year. What Good Fortune might 1914 bring? Chapter 5 The Conclusion of the History of Money WORLD WAR I (1914 1918) The Germans Borrowed Money from the German Rothschild's Bank, the British Borrowed Money from the British Rothschild's Bank, and the French Borrowed Money from the French Rothschild's Bank. American Super Banker, J. P. Morgan, was amongst other things also a Sales Agent for War Materials. Six months into the War, his spending of $10 million a day made him the Largest Consumer on the Earth! 53 The HISTORY of MONEY! The Rockefellers and the head of President Wilson's War Industries Board, Bernard Baruch, each made some 200 million Dollars, while Poor American Families contributed their Sons to the Bloody Front Lines; but Profit was not the only Motive for their Involvement. Russia had spoiled the Money Changer's Plan to split America in two, and remained the Last Major Country not to have its own Central Bank. Now they would Pay for their Stubborn Independence. Three years after the start of the War the entire Russian Royal Family was killed and Communism began. You might find it strange to Learn that the Russian Revolution was also Fueled with British Money. In other Words, it was Capitalist Businessmen Financing Communism? Author Gary Allen gives his explanation: "If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead, it becomes logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs. Communism or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite." Gary Allen, Author W. Cleon Skousen wrote in his book 'The Naked Capitalist'. "Power from any source tends to create an appetite for additional power... It was almost inevitable that the super-rich would one day aspire to control not only their own wealth, but the wealth of the whole world. To achieve this, they were 54 The HISTORY of MONEY! perfectly willing to feed the ambitions of the power-hungry political conspirators who were committed to the overthrow of all existing governments and the establishments of a central world-wide dictatorship." W. Cleon Skousen Extreme Revolutionary Groups were Controlled by being Financed when they Complied, while being cut off when they did not Comply, with Money sometimes being given to their Opposition. If you find that Difficult to Believe, just Listen to what the so called Dictator of the new Soviet Union had to say. "The state does not function as we desired. The car does not obey. A man is at the wheel and seems to lead it, but the car does not drive in the desired direction. It moves as another force wishes." Vladimir Lenin (See, Wurmbrand, "Marx and Satan," p. 49) Rep. Louis T. McFadden, the Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee throughout the 1920 30's, explained it this way. "The course of Russian history has, indeed, been greatly affected by the operations of international bankers... The Soviet Government has been given United States Treasury funds by the Federal Reserve Board... acting through the Chase Bank. ... England has drawn money from us through the Federal Reserve Banks and has re-lent it at high rates of interest to the Soviet Government... The Dnieperstory Dam was built with funds unlawfully taken from the United States Treasury by the corrupt and dishonest Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks." Rep. Louis T. McFadden (D- PA) (See, United States Congressional Record, June 15, 1934.) 55 The HISTORY of MONEY! Even when Communism collapsed in the Soviet Union, Boris Yeltsin revealed where most of the Foreign Aid was ending up, we quote, "straight back into the coffers of western banks in debt service." WORLD DOMINATION With Russia down, the Money Changers now had Control of every Major National Economy. Like a Steam Roller moving and a Wolf gathering its Pack, there was only one thing left to do and that was to go Global. The first Attempt was the Proposal at the Paris Peace Conference after WWI, in Order to set up the League of Nations. However, Old Habits can hardly Die; and even what they called 'the war to end all wars' was not enough to Convince Nations to Dissolve their Boundaries. Therefore, the League Died. If Politicians really were being Controlled, you would think at least one would Break Ranks and cry out against it. Many did. One was no less than former New York City Mayor John Haylan "These international bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government.... The warning of Theodore Roosevelt has much timeliness today, for the real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over City, State, and nation... It seizes in its long and powerful tentacles our executive officers, our legislative bodies, our schools, our courts, our newspapers, and every agency created for the public protection... To depart from mere generalizations, let me say that at the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller-Standard 56 The HISTORY of MONEY! Oil interest and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as the international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties, write political platforms, make cat's-paws of party leaders, use the leading men of private organizations, and resort to every device to place in nomination for high public office only such candidates as will be amenable to the dictates of corrupt big business... These international bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of newspapers and magazines in this country." John Hylan, Mayor of New York 1927, (Former New York City Mayor John Haylan speaking in Chicago and quoted in the March 27, 1927, New York Times). Those warnings fell on Deaf Ears, being Drowned out by the Music and Excitement of the Roaring 20's. Indeed, most People do not tend to Complain much during Times of Prosperity, so the Money Changers used that Boom Time that they had Created in Order to Defuse any Complaints about their Growing Control. DEPRESSION IN 1929 Stack in front of you the Biographies of all of the Wall Street Giants, such as J. P. Morgan, Joe F. Kennedy, John D. Rockefeller, Bernard Baruch, and you will find that they all marvel at how they got out of the Stock Market and put their Assets in Gold just before the Crash. None mention a Secret Directive, which was Revealed since that Time, which was sent by the Father of the Federal Reserve, Paul Warburg, Warning of the coming Collapse and Great Depression. 57 The HISTORY of MONEY! With Control of the Press and the Education System, few Americans are Aware that the Federal Reserve Caused the Depression. It is however a well known Fact among leading top Economists. "The Federal Reserve definitely caused the Great depression by contracting the amount of currency in circulation by one- third from 1929 to 1933." Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize Winning Economist. "It 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." Rep. Louis T. McFadden (D-PA) "I think it can hardly be disputed that the statesmen and financiers of Europe are ready to take almost any means to re- acquire rapidly the gold stock which Europe lost to America as the result of World War I." Rep. Louis T. McFadden (D-PA) 40 billion Dollars somehow Vanished during the Crash. It did not really Vanish, it simply Shifted into the Hands of the Money Changers. This is how Joe Kennedy went from having 4 million Dollars in 1929, to having over 100 million in 1935. During that Time the Fed (Federal Reserve) Caused a 33% Reduction of the Money Supply, thus Causing deeper Depression. HOW THE FED CREATES MONEY We have been talking about how the Privately-owned Federal Reserve can produce Money from thin Air, so to speak; but here is how it is done. 58 The HISTORY of MONEY! 1. The Purchase of Bonds is Approved by the Federal Open Market Committee. 2. The Fed Buys the Bonds, which it Pays for with Electronic Credits made to the Seller's Bank. Those Credits are based on nothing! 3. The receiving Banks then use those Credits as Reserves from which they can Loan out ten times the Amount. However, in Order to Reduce the Amount of Money in the Economy they simply Reverse the Process. The Fed Sells Bonds to the Public, and Money is drawn from the Purchaser’s Bank in Order to Pay for them. Each million Withdrawn, lowers the Bank’s Ability to Loan by 10 million. The Federal Bank in that Way has Overall Control of the U.S. Money Supply, as each Country's Central Bank does in the same Way, by the same Method. The Bankers, through the Magic of Fractional Reserve Banking, have been Delegated the Right to Create 90% of the Money Supply. That Control makes a Mockery of any Elected Government. It places Professing Leaders behind a Toy Steering Wheel, like the Plastic ones, set up in Order to Amuse small Children. Or, as Rep. Charles Lindbergh, father of the Famous Aviator Lucky Lindy puts it, when commenting on the Federal Reserve Act: "This act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs this bill, the invisible government by the Monetary Power will be legalized. The people may not know it 59 The HISTORY of MONEY! immediately, but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed... The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking bill." Rep. Charles Lindbergh (R- MN) Or, as Woodrow Wilson put it: "We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled governments in the civilized world no longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government by... a vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it." Woodrow Wilson In Order to Clearly Establish that this is not a Conspiracy Theory, but is actually how things are Controlled, we further quote Charles Lindbergh. From the House of Representatives, Lindbergh was well placed in Order to See Exactly what was Happening back then and continues to Happen until Today. "[In Order] To cause high prices[,] all [that] the federal reserve board will [have to] do[,] will be to lower the re- discount rate..., producing an expansion of credit and a rising stock market; then when... business men are adjusted to these conditions, it can check... prosperity in mid-career by arbitrarily raising the rate of interest. It can cause the pendulum of a rising and falling market to swing gently back and forth by slight changes in the discount rate, or cause violent fluctuations by greater rate variation, and in either case it will possess inside information as to financial conditions and 60 The HISTORY of MONEY! advance knowledge of the coming change, either up or down. This is the strangest, most dangerous advantage ever placed in the hands of a special privilege[d] class by any Government that ever existed. The system is private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people's money. They know in advance when to create panics to their advantage. They also know when to stop panic. Inflation and deflation work equally well for them when they control finance..." Rep. Charles Lindbergh (R-MN) ADOLF'S BANKERS Most all People will be Aware of Hitler's rise to Power. However, what they probably do not know is that he was almost completely Financed by Money that was drawn from the Privately-owned American Federal Reserve Bank! "After WWI, Germany fell into the hands of the international bankers. Those bankers bought her and they now own her lock, stock, and barrel. They have purchased her industries, they have mortgages on her soil, they control her production, they control all her public utilities. The international German bankers have subsidized the present Government of Germany and they have also supplied every dollar of the money Adolph Hitler has used in his lavish campaign to build up threat to the government of Bruening. When Bruening fails to obey the orders of the German International Bankers, Hitler is brought forth to scare the Germans into submission... Through the Federal Reserve Board over $30 billion of American money has been pumped into Germany. You have all heard of the spending that has taken place in Germany... Modernistic dwellings, her great planetariums, her gymnasiums, her swimming pools, her fine public highways, her perfect factories. All this was done on our money. All this was given to Germany through the Federal Reserve Board. The Federal 61 The HISTORY of MONEY! Reserve Board has pumped so many billions of dollars into Germany that they dare not name the total." Congressman Louis T. McFadden (D-PA) who served twelve years as Chairman of the Committee on Banking and Currency. FORT KNOX In 1933, newly Elected President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a Bill, forcing all of the American People to hand over all of their Gold at a Base Rate, with the exception of Rare Coins. He disowned himself from the Bill, claiming to not have read it, and his Secretary of the Treasury claimed that this was "what the experts wanted." Bought at a Bargain Basement Price with Money that was Produced from nothing by the Federal Reserve Bank, the Gold was melted down and stacked in the newly built Bullion Depository called Fort Knox. Once Collected, in 1935, the Price of Gold was raised from $20.66 up to $35 per Ounce; but only non-American Gold Qualified to be Sold. That meant that those People who had Avoided the Crash by Investing in Gold that they had shipped to London, could now nearly double their Money while the rest of America starved! But that is not all, dear Folks. By the end of WWII, Fort Knox did hold 70% of the World's Gold; but over the Years it was Sold off to the European Money Changers while a Public Audit of Fort Knox Reserves was repeatedly Denied. Rumors spread about Missing Gold. "Allegations of missing gold from our Fort Knox vaults are being widely discussed in European circles. But what is puzzling is that the Administration is not hastening to 62 The HISTORY of MONEY! demonstrate conclusively that there is no cause for concern over our gold treasure if indeed it is in a position to do so." Edith Roosevelt Finally, in 1981, President Ronald Reagan was convinced to have a look into Fort Knox with a view to re-introducing the Gold Standard. He appointed a group called The Gold Commission. They found that the U.S. Treasury owned no Gold at all! Indeed, all of the Fort Knox Gold remaining is now being held as Collateral by the Federal Reserve Bank against the National Debt. Using Credits made from nothing, the Fed had Robbed the largest Treasure of Gold on Earth! WORLD WAR II (1939 1945) World War II saw the U.S. Debt Increased by 598%, while Japan's Debt went up by 1,348%, with France up by 583%, and Canada up by 417%. When you hear that, what is your First Impression? Do you Automatically think that is Bad or that is Good? Most of us feel a Well-programmed Sense of Desperation when we hear figures like that; but Remember, to the Money Changers, that is Music to their Ears: because they are Guaranteed a Greater Income. With the Hot War over, and the Cold War began, the Arms Race would Naturally Cause more and more Borrowing. Now the Money Changers could really Concentrate on Global Domination. Step one, the European Monetary Union and NAFTA. Step 2, Centralize the Global Economy via the World Central Bank. 63 The HISTORY of MONEY! THE WORLD CENTRAL BANK (1948 Present) In Washington, the Headquarters of both the World Bank and the IMF (International Monetary Fund) Face each other on the same Street. What are those Organizations, and who Controls them? In Order to find out, we need to look back to the Time just after WWI. At that point the Money Changers were Attempting to Consolidate the Central Banks under the Guise of Peacemaking. In Order to stop Future Wars, they put forward the Formation of a World Central Bank, Cleverly Named the Bank of International Settlements, a World Court called the World Court in the Hague, and a World Executive for Legislation called the League of Nations. In his 1966 book entitled Tragedy and Hope, President Clinton's mentor Carroll Quigley writes about that. "The powers of financial capitalism had [a] far-reaching [plan], nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank... Sought to dominate its government by its ability to control treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world." Carroll Quigley, Professor, Georgetown University 64 The HISTORY of MONEY! They got 2 out of 3. The League of Nations failed largely, owing to the Suspicions of the People, and while Opposition Concentrated on that, the other 2 Proposals Snuck their way through. It would take another War in Order to wear the Public Resistance down. The People on Wall Street Invested heavily in Order to Rebuild Germany, even as the Chase Bank had propped up the Russian Revolution. Now the Chase merged with the Warburg's Manhattan Bank in Order to Form the Chase/Manhattan Bank, which would later merge with the Chemical Bank in Order to become the largest Bank on Wall Street. In 1944, the U.S. approved its full participation in the IMF and the World Bank. By 1945, the second League of Nations was approved under the new Name 'The United Nations.' The War had Dissolved all Opposition. The Methods used in the National Banking Act of 1864 and the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 were now simply used on a Global Scale. The Federal Reserve Act allowing the creation of Federal Reserve Notes is Mirrored by the IMF's authority to Produce Money called Special Drawing Rights (SDR's). It is estimated that the IMF has Produced $30 billion Dollars worth of SDR's so far. In the United States, SDR's are already accepted as Legal Money, and all other Member Nations are being pressured to follow suit. With SDR's being partially Backed by Gold, a World Gold Standard is sneaking its way in through the Back Door, which comes with no objection from the Money Changers who now hold two-thirds of the World’s Gold and can use this to structure the World’s Economy to their further Advantage. Now, we have gone from the Goldsmith's Fraud being reproduced on a National Scale through the Bank of England and the Federal Reserve, to a Global Level with the IMF and the World Bank. Unless we together stop giving these Exchange Units their Power 65 The HISTORY of MONEY! by our Collective Faith in them, the Future will probably see the Intergalactic Bank and the Federation of Planets Reserve set up in much the same way. This radical Transfer of Power has taken place with absolutely no Mandate from the People. Nations Borrow Special Drawing Rights from the International Monetary Fund in Order to Pay Interest on their Mounting Debts. With those SDR's being Produced at no Cost, the IMF charges more Interest. That, even though Contrary to Bold Claims, does not Alleviate Poverty, nor further any Development. It just Creates a Steady Flow of Wealth from Borrowing Nations to the Money Changers, who now Control the IMF and the World Bank. Moreover, the Permanent Debt of Third World Countries is constantly being Increased in Order to provide Temporary Relief from the Poverty being Caused by Previous Borrowing. Those Repayments already Exceed the Amount of New Loans. By 1992, Africa's Debt had reached $290 billion Dollars, which is two and a half times greater than it was in 1980. A noble attempt to Repay it has Caused Increased Infant Mortality and Unemployment, plus Deteriorating Schools, and general Health and Welfare Problems. Moreover, as World Resources continue to be Sucked into that Insatiable Black Hole of Capitalist Greed, if Allowed to Continue, the entire World will Face a Similar Fate. As one Prominent Brazilian Politician, Luis Ignacio Silva, put it: "Without being radical or overly bold, I will tell you that the Third World War has already started a silent war, not for that reason any the less sinister. This war is tearing down Brazil, Latin America and practically all the Third World. Instead of soldiers dying[,] there are children [dying], instead of millions of wounded[,] there are millions of unemployed; instead of destruction of bridges there is the tearing down of 66 The HISTORY of MONEY! factories, schools, hospitals, and entire economies . . . It is a war by the United States against the Latin American continent and the Third World. It is a war over the foreign debt, one which has as its main weapon interest, a weapon more deadly than the atom bomb, more shattering than a laser beam." (Stated by Luis Ignacio Silva, at the Havana Debt Conference in August 1985, quoted by Susan George, in her Book, called: A Fate Worse Than Death p. 238.) However, if a Group or Organization had used its Hard-earned Money in Order to help those Developing Nations, then we might Sympathize with them, that there should be a Real Effort in Order to Repay those Loans. But the Money that was Used was Created from Fractional Reserve Banking. The Money Loaned to the Third World came from the 90% that the Banks Allow themselves to Loan on the 10% that they Actually Held. It did not Exist, it was Created from nothing, and now People are Suffering and Dying in an Effort to Repay the Loans. That has gone beyond Clever Financing, it is Wholesale Murder in the First Degree; and it is High Time that we Tax Slaves and Interest Slaves STOPPED IT. We should, and we can! Chapter 6 Supplemental Thoughts Believe it or not, most Americans have never read nor Heard such Important Words, even as Plain and Understandable as they are: because they are Distracted from the Reality of True Prosperity by Sports, TV Comedies, War Games, Bad News, Talk Shows, Vain Music, Romance Novels, Perverted History Books, Movies, and whatever. Indeed, you may also be an Average American with a Constipated Brain, who has no Real Interest in Learning such Truth: beCause it Upsets the Belly of your Mind; 67 The HISTORY of MONEY! but Remember that there is a Day of Judgment, and every Dog has his Payday: because we all Reap whatever we Sow, either now or later.13 See First Corinthians 6: 9 10, and Galatians 6: 7. Therefore, if you know of someone who is Ignorant concerning such Important Information, you should at least Suggest to them that they would do themselves a Great Favor if they should read this Good Book. Moreover, you should also do yourself a Great Favor, and read this Book one more time, until you Thoroughly Understand its Message, and Learn to Appreciate it.

Your Personal Notes: 83 Few People take Sickness and Disease SERIOUSLY, until it Happens to THEM; and then you would Naturally Think that they might Want to Learn what CAUSES such Sicknesses and Diseases; but, instead, most People just ASSUME that if the Doctor Knife or Doctor Shots does not Know the Cause and the Cure, no one else could possibly Know anything about it! However, no Wild Animal on this Earth ever Suffers with so much Ignorance, Fear, Worry, Indebtedness, Sickness, Disease, Wounds, Hospitalization, Imprisonment, and Troubles, as PEOPLE have, which Demonstrates that those Wild Animals have a Degree of “Knowledge” that is Superior to OURS! Therefore, it is Possible for us to Learn Good Lessons from all such Creatures, who Live on Natural Diets. Likewise, most People do not Think about Money, until they are Broke; but there is a Way for People to Live in Peace, and to Prosper beyond your Wildest Imagination, without going into Debt, without becoming Interest Slaves, and without Tax Slavery, which is Revealed within this Good Book, which not only gives the History of Money; but the Solution for a Lack of it!
