An overstatement, that Jesus would put an end to the Federal Reserve, if he were on the earth today? Read these statements by honorable and loyal Americans, and tell me. Louis T. McFadden, Congressman and Chairman of the Committee on Banking and Currency, 10 June 1932, in a speech to the House of Representatives, Congressional Record, pp. 12595–12603; see also Congressman Louis T. McFadden on the Federal Reserve Corporation: Remarks in Congress, 1934, reprinted by the Arizona Caucus Club, 1978 Mr. Chairman, we have in this Country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks, herinafter called the Fed. . . . This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of these United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through the defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Fed and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it. From the same speech, but later: Every effort has been made by the Fed to conceal its powers—but the truth is—the Fed has usurped the Government. It controls everything here and it controls all of our foreign relations. It makes and breaks governments at will. No man and no body of men is more entrenched in power than the arrogant credit monopoly which operated the Fed. . . . Mr. Chairman, when the Fed was passed, the people of these United States did not perceive that a world system was being set up here . . . and that this country was to supply the financial power to an “international superstate.” A superstate controlled by international bankers, and international industrialists acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure? Louis T. McFadden, 9 March 1933, in his Speech to the House of Representatives, Congressional Record Mr. Chairman, I see no reason why citizens of the United States should be terrorized into surrendering their property to the International Bankers who own and control the Federal Reserve. Louis T. McFadden It was not accidental [the 1929 stock-market “crash”]. 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. Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr., U.S. Senate, Nov. 1912 When the President signs this act [Federal Reserve Act of 1913], the invisible government by the money power—proven to exist by the Monetary Trust Investigation—will be legalized. The new law will create inflation whenever the trusts want inflation. From now on, depressions will be scientifically created. William Lyon Mackenzie King, Prime Minister of Canada, 1935 Once a nation parts with the control of its currency and credit, it matters not who makes the nations laws. Usury, once in control, will wreck any nation. Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most sacred responsibility, all talk of the sovereignty of parliament and of democracy is idle and futile. Henry Ford, founder of Ford Motor Company It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. Andrew Jackson, U.S. President, to Congress in 1836, closing the second Federal Bank The bold effort the present [central] bank had made to control the government . . . are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it. James Madison, 4th U.S. President 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 the money and its issuance. John Sherman, protégé of the Rothschild banking family, in a letter sent to New York bankers, Morton, and Gould, in support of the then proposed National Banking Act, 25 June 1863 The few who could understand the system will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests. President Woodrow Wilson, speaking in 1916 in reference to signing the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world—no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men. Louis Brandeis, U.S. Supreme Court Justice We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both. Baron Nathan Mayer de Rothschild (1777-1836) I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the Empire, . . . The man that controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire. And I control the money supply. James A. Garfield, former U.S. President Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce. Mayer Amschel Rothschild, in The Creature from Jekyll Island (American Opinion Publishing), p. 218 Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.
