The US House of Representatives on Banking, 1911

May 23, 2012

Note: This is two years before the imposition of the Thieves Guild, popularly known as the Federal Reserve, on the American people.

…The history of these men in the United States proves that they started in the interest of and under the direction and domination of the English house of Rothschild, dealers in debts and money, and as their American correspondents the houses of Belmont, Morgan, et al., received their education and instruction from them, until at last they have become the greatest plunderers of the people the world has ever known.

The men who have manufactured the debts on the railroads and resources of the United States are not bankers. They are creators of false promises, defrauding the living, capitalizing the future, and placing mortgages upon the unborn children of this country.

Under an evil money system, and in violation of the law, banking and industrial corporations, really in partnership, one with the other, have caused the issue of stocks and bonds upon the railroads and industrial resources until it is now seriously suggested that the fundamental principles of the American Constitution must be violated, and our form of government changed in order to protect the fabulous amount of watered securities dishonestly issued by and through these corporations.

The time of the voters is taken up during each campaign with furious debates over all kinds of issues except the most important one, a sound money system. In the meanwhile, presidential candidates are syndicated by the moneyed interests. There is no patriotism in these men now controlling the politics and policies of the country. It is a cold-blooded, far-seeing, avaricious, and systematic greed for wealth and the power that goes with it. What do these men care for political creeds? Their maxim is, “Let us issue and control the money supply, and manage the United States Treasury, and we care not what political party is in power.”

The question now is, how much longer will the intelligence of the American people be diverted from this vital question by the politicians and their political theories, striving after shadows, while the people lose the substance.

Hearings on House resolution no. 314: authorizing the appointment of a committee to investigate as to whether there are not combinations of financial and other concerns who control money and credits, and operate in restraint of trade through that control, 1911
