Central Banking 101

For those of you who might doubt claims that the Elite have intentionally dumbed-down our educational system, I’d like to raise the subject of Central Banks…

Ringing any bells…? Probably not, because if you were born anytime after World War II, you have probably never had any reason to be interested in the subject of Central Banks. It has been mostly ignored in our economics textbooks, and it rarely showed up in any of our newspaper, magazines or on the evening news. In fact, the average American, if he has an opinion about it at all, would probably guess that Central Banking is simply some system for organizing they way money is stored and moved around… face it, we really don’t know much about banking.

You might be surprised, however, to learn that prior to the early 1900s, the issue of Central Banking was a frequent, divisive and hotly contested political issues in American politics. You’re only surprised because this topic has been largely removed from our textbooks and is generally taboo within the editorial rooms of the main stream media. This is because Central Banking – and it’s corruption – are critical to the power and control of the elites and key to their domination of the world for over the last few centuries.

The original Bankster, Amschel Rothschild. One of the first big-time money lenders, he was famous for funding both sides of the Battle of Waterloo and reaping magnificent fortunes off of wars. Rothschild was perhaps the first financier to realize the power of Central Banking. ” Give me control of a nation’s money supply,” he said. “And I care not who makes it’s laws.”

The magnitude of the potential wealth and immense power possible through central banking is perhaps best evidenced in the legacy of the Amschel Rothschild, whose family today is estimated to be worth Trillions of dollars – and yet, whose name almost never shows up in any of the yearly lists of the world’s richest – because they don’t want it to.

Central  Banks are formed when the Wealthy Elite coerce, bribe or extort from the government the power to issue a country’s money. This essentially means that country has to borrow its money supply from a private bank – rather than just issuing and printing its own. The craziest thing about this cozy arrangement is that the Central Bank doesn’t really have the money, it simply has been given the right to create from thin air whatever money the country needs. This is a formula for funneling enormous power and wealth to the elite owners of the bank, and one which some of freedom’s great champions have vigorously opposed.

Thomas Jefferson – surely one of the greatest, wisest Americans of all time, was vehemently against Central Banks, declaring them to be “more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.”  He described the danger of Central Banking as follows: “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency – first by inflation, then by deflation – the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.”

Seventh President of United States, Andrew Jackson was also strongly against Central Banks. One of his most greatest personal achievements was vetoing the renewal of the charter for the  Bank of the United States – a central bank that Jackson felt: concentrated the nations financial strength into a single institution, exposed the government to control by foreign interests, served mainly to make the rich richer, exercised too much control of congress and were controlled by a few select families.

But opposing the banks can be a dangerous thing, even for a president.

When seeking $150 million in funding for the civil war, Abraham Lincoln went against the Banking elite, rejecting as extortion their 36% interest fees. He knew such a loan would be impossible to pay off, so rather than subject the country to debt slavery, he authorized the government to issue and print it’s own money – $450 million in Greenbacks – a betrayal of the elite for which he likely paid with his life. “The Money Power,” Lincoln said, “preys upon 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. I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the few hands and the republic is destroyed.”

President John F. Kennedy may himself have been trying to rein in the power of the Federal Reserve – our current Central Bank – when on June 4th of 1963 he signed Executive Order 11110 – which allowed the Treasury to issue and print its own money in the form of Silver Certificates, which, if it had been allowed to continue would in time have significantly impinged on the monopoly power of the Federal Reserve and the billionaires and power elite behind it. In a speech before the American Newspaper Publishers Association, JFK spoke openly about the dangers and growing power of this unelected shadow elite. For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.”

It’s entirely likely that these people, and their henchmen in the CIA killed Kennedy in Dealy Plaza on November 22, 1963.

Kennedy’s son, JFK Jr., was someone who knew something about the evil and corruption of Central Banking’s moneyed elite. He had seen first hand how murderous they could be, and yet, in an October 1998 interview in “George”, the political magazine he founded he said that if he were president he would do the following: “First, I would repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, which created what l believe is the privately owned central bank of the United States government and which confiscates the incomes of Americans and gradually transfers them into the accounts of the ruling class. I would replace the Fed with a model based on the only state-owned banking system, the Bank of North Dakota, because it creates wealth for the people. Second, I would reduce the reach of the Fed’s collection agency, the IRS, by assigning it the task of managing a state-run national sales tax…” He had to know that in publicly speaking against the Fed, he would incur the wrath of the very same people who likely killed his father.

When asked in the same interview who he thought would become president in 2000, JFK Jr. replied, “The next choice of the Money Lords… He or she will be picked by the same people who selected George Bush and Bill Clinton.”

John F. Kennedy Jr. died just nine months later when his airplane mysteriously crashed on a approach to Martha’s Vinyard killing him and two passengers.

So, we’ve been warned… that’s clear. The devastating effects on our liberties that Jefferson, Jackson, JFK and his son have come true. Our banking system is out of control – too big to fail, or jail. Our corporations have grown all-powerful and answerable to no nation and no one. Corruption in high places is the norm. And the American people are indeed becoming homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

What should be done?  Well, it just so happens that the Federal Reserve’s 100 Year Charter expires this year. A Jacksonian move to reject its renewal would be a bow shot against the evil-archy which has stolen control of our country.

What do you say… let’s Expire the Fed!







Sand in our Ears

HeadInSandAmerica has lost its way. We have lost our position as world leader in anything other than military power. Our political system is mired in party brinksmanship and completely incapable of solving any of our national problems, much less lead us toward a better future. Our economy has been shelled by the profit-maximizing, off-shoring of our industries by the globalist/capitalist elite. Corruption of our media and educational systems have left most of us either uninformed, misinformed, or just plain unable to comprehend the problems and issues facing us as a country and a world. We have become so accustomed to being lied to by our government that we have come to accept their deceit and corruption. We are subjected to a level of surveillance and invasions of our privacy that was once common only in countries like Nazi German and the Soviet Union. And we stand in dumb incomprehension as our constitutional rights are dismantled by the very people who are sworn to defend them. And meanwhile, our once world class standard of living has steadily eroded, with more people unemployed or on assistance than at any other time in our country’s history.

We are failing as a country… and badly.

But oddly enough… we really don’t appear to be all that angry about it.

With all that is wrong with this country, all that has been lost, stolen and debased, you have to wonder why more of us are not protesting. Why there aren’t marches every week, why we aren’t calling for the heads of our elected officials – or at least the bankers and capitalist criminals who have destroyed our way of life.

You have to wonder indeed, what might it take to get a rise out of Americans these days?

There is still a lot of “Love it or Leave it” mentality out there today. But though there is still alot to love about this country, there are many, many things that have gone horribly wrong. The source of the problems are much more complex, more sinister, and more hidden from our view than many of us would like to believe. Too many of us are too quick to accept the simple solutions, or point fingers at the obvious villains that are placed before us. Too many of us fall for the divide-and-conquer mind control techniques of the paid propagandists in the media. We are cleverly divided into right and left sides – with red meat thrown between, us so that we have something to fight over. But we cannot see that we are not each other’s enemy – but all victims of the master class who pits us against one another.
