You left no stone unturned.

"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."

Nathan Rothschild (1778 - 1836)

The Federal Reserve, is not, as the name might infer, a publicly owned banking system, but a private cartel of banks whose stock is 100% owned by private shareholders, who charge the American government (taxpayers), to print its own money, for the financial benefit of its shareholders.

Thomas Jefferson famously declared, "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

The Global Banking Conspiracy Theorists, cite what's happening in contemporary America, as proof Jefferson was correct in the assertion above.

There is a fascinating 15 minute piece on msnbc's Dylan Ratigan Show, from a few days ago, on 'foreclosure fraud', about how the banks were trying to improperly re-posses houses whose complex ownership trail, the people on his show argue, lead to the gates of a $45 trillion con that, if unravelled to show the true scale of the (global) mess America is currently in, would expose how basic is the con enacted by a shadowy and unaccountable Federal Reserve banking system run as institutes, for the financial profit of its million and billionaire shareholders and ruinious to the interests of the vast majority of ordinary Americans.

The 1913 Federal Reserve Act that brought the (private cartel) Federal Reserve into being, was initially proposed in 1908 by Rhode Island Republican leader in the Senate, Nelson Aldrich, his home state's thirty-third degree Grand Master freemason, whose only daughter, Abigail Aldrich, married John Davison Rockefeller Senior's only son, J.D. Rockerfeller Jr, who ended up in 1930 owning 4% of the then largest bank in the world, Chase National Bank (now JP Morgan Chase), that Nelson Aldrich's son & scion, Wintrop Aldrich, was president and chairman of the board on, from 1930 to 1953.

Abigail Aldrich and J.D.R Jr's son, is 95 year old David Rockefeller, claimed by the Global Banking Conspiracy theorists, as one of the richest and most influential people on the planet.

The Federal Reseve Act transferred control of the money supply from Congress to the banking system you now have, headed by Bernanke, and the act went through the final stage of ratification in the Senate, between 1.30 & 4.30 am, on Monday December 22 1913, during which 20 to 40 substantial differences in the House and Senate versions, were described, deliberated upon, debated, reconciled and voted upon, in four-and-a-half to nine minutes per item.

It has a very controversial history, as you can read here

At 4.30 am, a prepared report of this Committee was handed to the printers. Senator Bristow of Kansas, the Republican leader, stated on the Congressional Record that the Conference Committee had met without notifying them, and that Republicans were not present and were given no opportunity either to read or sign the Conference Committee report. The Conference report is normally read on the Senate floor. The Republicans did not even see the report. Some senators stated on the floor of the Senate that they had no knowledge of the contents of the Bill.

At 6.02 PM on 23 December, when many members had already left the Capital for the Christmas holiday, the very same day that the Bill was hurried through the House and Senate, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 into law.

Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr (father of famous aviator), wrote in his book Banking and Currency and The Money Trust, 1913:

"This Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth... The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency Bill."

Louis McFadden, Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee in the 1930s, mirroring what Ron Paul is saying today, said then:

"Some people think that the Federal Reserve Banks are United States Government institutions. They are private monopolies which prey upon the people of these United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers; foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers; and rich and predatory money lenders."


The G.B.S theory states that the American government is powerless in the face of a banking system that is run for private profit. J.F.K began the first steps to end the usurious relationship between the people and America's bank that charges you to print your own money, when he signed The Federal Reserve And Executive Order 11110, a little known attempt that was 'made to strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the government at interest. Executive Order No. 11110 returned to the U.S. government the power to issue currency, without going through the Federal Reserve. Kennedy gave the Treasury the power "to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury."

For every ounce of silver in the U.S. Treasury, the government could introduce new money into circulation. In all, Kennedy brought nearly $4.3 billion in U.S. notes into circulation.

With the stroke of a pen, he was on the way to putting the Federal Reserve Bank of New York out of business. If enough of these silver certificats were to come into circulation they would have eliminated the demand for Federal Reserve notes. This is because the silver certificates are backed by silver and the Federal Reserve notes are not backed by anything. Executive Order 11110 could have prevented the national debt from reaching its current level, because it would have given the gevernment the ability to repay its debt without going to the Federal Reserve and being charged interest in order to create the new money.

Executive Order 11110 gave the U.S. the ability to create its own money backed by silver.

After Kennedy was assassinated just five months later, no more silver certificates were issued, tho the Executive Order was never repealed by any U.S. President through an Executive Order and is still valid. Why then has no president utilized it? Virtually all of the nearly trillions in debt has been created since 1963, and if a U.S. president had utilized Executive Order 11110 the debt would be nowhere near the current level. Perhaps the assassination of JFK was a warning to future presidents who would think to eliminate the U.S. debt by eliminating the Federal Reserve's control over the creation of money. Kennedy challenged the government of money by challenging the two most successful vehicles that have ever been used to drive up debt - war and the creation of money by a privately-owned central bank. His efforts to have all troops out of Vietnam by 1965 and Executive Order 11110 would have severely cut into the profits and control of the New York banking establishment. As America's debt reaches obscene levels, with all the conflicts started on an incorrect, wrong premise by Bush Jr, that have bankrpupted you, and with the Bananke further increasing America's debt, one is forced to ask, will President Obama have the courage to consider utilizing Executive Order 11110?

At the end of the day, there's low-hanging fruit to be plucked, and only time will tell if cooler heads will prevail.

What do you say to the argument that the debt level is neutralized by Chinese dependence on their American holdings? As for the assassination of JFK as a warning to the bankers, it wouldn't be the first time. Didn't the financiers target Lincoln because of his decision to change the basis of the currency?

Wasn't the currency also why Lincoln was targeted?

I remind you that BAP is a poetry site, and this is actually a coded description of Emily Dickinson's secret sexual liason with Judge Otis Lord. Those who have ears, let them hear.

You've confirmed what I, a respected Dickinson scholar, have known all along. As the former editor of Contemporary Literature in Translation, I've probed this subject deeply and at length.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
