Those who knew the truth...

“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

“The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks.”

Lord Acton (1834-1902) English historian

“Until control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most conspicuous and sacred responsibility, all talk of sovereignty of Parliament and democracy is idle and futile … Once a nation parts with its credit, it matters not who makes the nation’s laws … Usury once in control will wreck any nation.”

William Lyon Mackenzie King, former Prime Minister of Canada

“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.”

John Adams, Founding Father

“The refusal of King George to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators was probably the prime cause of the revolution.”

Benjamin Franklin, Founding Father

“The money power preys on the nation in times of peace, and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes.”

“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me, and causes me to tremble for the safety of our country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavour to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the republic is destroyed.”

“The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency, and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government, and the buying power of consumers. By the adoption of these principals, the taxpayers will be saving immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master, and become the servant of humanity.”

Abraham Lincoln, assassinated President of the United States

“I believe that [private] banking institutions are more dangerous than standing armies … If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency … the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of their property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
President Thomas Jefferson

“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson…”President Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Issue of currency should be lodged with the government and be protected from domination by Wall Street. We are opposed to … provisions [which] would place our currency and credit system in private hands.”

President Theodore Roosevelt

“Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce … and when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.”

James A. Garfield, assassinated President of the United States

“The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it. The process by which banks create money is so simple the mind is repelled.”

John Kenneth Galbraith, former professor of economics at Harvard

“… our whole monetary system is dishonest, as it is debt-based… We did not vote for it. It grew upon us gradually but markedly since 1971 when the commodity-based system was abandoned.”
The Earl of Caithness, in a speech to the House of Lords, 1997

“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.”

Senator Barry Goldwater

“Only the small secrets need to be protected. The big ones are kept secret by public incredulity.”
Marshall McLuhan

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected the promise of discretion for almost forty years.

It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world-government.

The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”

Corporate magnate David Rockefeller, in an address to the Trilateral Commission Meeting, 1991

“A definite factor in getting a lie believed is the size of the lie. The broad mass of the people, in the simplicity of their hearts, more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one.” Adolf Hitler

“In a time of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
George Orwell
