You have the advantage of me in that I’ve never heard of Robion Kirby and so, when something comes my way from Sackers, whom one has to watch because he can be a mischievous lad at times, then caution is the order of the day.
The danger is that those nominally on the centre-right or anti-Statists fall into two categories – those who do their homework and keep their minds open and those who mutter about tinfoil hats without bothering to think anything through or follow leads.
Predicting the future and even the past is a fraught business anyway but as the City and NY do it, why should we be any different? Thus I bring this article by Ron Kirby and via Sackers, obviously highly abridged. Each time a paragraph is posted below, it’s just been read a few minutes before. Dateline is Feb 6, 2007.
Elementary, My Dear Watson
For me, the poignant moment in Watson’s interview was when Russo revealed that after his popular video Mad As Hell was released and he began his campaign to become Governor of Nevada, Russo was noticed by [Nick] Rockefeller and introduced to him by a female attorney. Seeing Russo’s passion and ability to affect change, Rockefeller set about on a subtle mission to recruit Russo into the [CFR] elite.
During one conversation, Rockefeller asked Russo if he was interested in joining the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) but Russo rejected the invitation, saying he had no interest in “enslaving the people” to which Rockefeller coldly questioned why he cared about the “serfs.”
The interview continues with Russo revealing:
“I used to say to him what’s the point of all this,” states Russo, “you have all the money in the world you need, you have all the power you need, what’s the point, what’s the end goal?” to which Rockefeller replied (paraphrasing), “The end goal is to get everybody chipped, to control the whole society, to have the bankers and the elite people control the world.”
Rockefeller even assured Russo that if he joined the elite his chip would be specially marked so as to avoid undue inspection by the authorities.
This all sounds deliciously conspiratorial, doesn’t it?
Perhaps the utterances of Mr. Rockefeller take on a little more meaning if one stops to consider the words of Central Banking luminary – James Paul Warburg speaking before the United States Senate in 1950, where he said,
We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.
When one stops and considers that the Warburg family was instrumental in founding not only the CFR but was part of a greater Central Banking Axis [along with Rothschild] responsible for the formation of the Federal Reserve; their motives, intent and ends become CRYSTAL CLEAR. You can read all the history here, here and here. Aside from the outright admission, the historical evidence is overwhelming.
The means to achieve their [Central Bank Inspired] ends [is?] the usury afforded by fiat money.
Getting There From Here
So how does one go about instituting a corrupt form of commerce [the usury associated with fiat money] when there already exists a [relatively] honest system of commerce and finance?
The last piece I penned, titled Forensic Economics 101, through the analytical insights and expertise of Dr. Antal Fekete – we examined how and determined that, in fact, the Gold Standard NEVER DID FAIL. It was sabotaged. I concluded that paper by posing the question; whether the sabotage was due to a naive mistake, or, was it premeditated?
Herein lies a plausible reason why the Gold Standard had to be sabotaged. Honest money, aka A Properly Functioning Gold Standard, categorically prevents the enslavement of the masses as envisaged by the elitist Bankers of The New World Order.
Along the way, there have stood men opposed to this Axis of Central Bankers and their fiat money schemes. These dissenting voices have been, for the most part, Americans. Framers of the Constitution for the United States of America knew all too well the evils of Central Banking and fiat money which is why they made provisions in their carefully crafted Constitution that only Congress would have the right to mint and coin lawful money, backed by specie.
In The Line of Fire
Through the years, a total of four sitting American Presidents have been assassinated. The following is a montage of these four Presidents along with a brief summary of their views regarding sound money, in all cases a clear and present danger to the sustenance of the Federal Reserve, the lynchpin of the Central Banking Axis.
Lincoln: Assassinated: April 15, 1865, Washington, D.C.
During the Civil War (from 1861-1865), President Lincoln needed money to finance the War from the North. The Bankers were going to charge him 24% to 36% interest. Lincoln was horrified.
Eventually President Lincoln was advised to get Congress to pass a law authorizing the printing of full legal tender Treasury notes to pay for the War effort. At one point he wrote:
“… (we) gave the people of this Republic the greatest blessing they have ever had – their own paper money to pay their own debts…”
The Treasury notes were printed with green ink on the back, so the people called them “Greenbacks”.
Lincoln printed 400 million dollars worth of Greenbacks (the exact amount being $449,338,902), money that he delegated to be created, a debt-free and interest-free money to finance the War. It served as legal tender for all debts, public and private. He printed it, paid it to the soldiers, to the U.S. Civil Service employees, and bought supplies for war.
Shortly after that happened, “The London Times” printed the following:
“if that mischievous financial policy, which had its origin in the North American Republic, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without a debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed, or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”
The Bankers obviously understood. The only thing … that is a threat to their power is sovereign governments printing interest-free and debt-free paper money. They know it would break the power of the international Bankers.
After this was published in “The London Times”, the British Government, which was controlled by the London and other European Bankers, moved to support the Confederate South, hoping to defeat Lincoln and the Union, and destroy this government which they said had to be destroyed.
They were stopped by two things.
First, Lincoln knew the British people, and he knew that Britain would not support slavery, so he issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which declared that slavery in the United States was abolished. At this point, the London Bankers could not openly support the Confederacy because the British people simply would not stand for their country supporting slavery.
Second, the Czar of Russia sent a portion of the Russian navy to the United States with orders that its admiral would operate under the command of Abraham Lincoln. [The Czarist regime would pay dearly for this transgression in the future.] These ships of the Russian navy then became a threat to the ships of the [Royal] Navy which had intended to break the blockade and help the South.
The North won the War, and the Union was preserved. America remained as one nation.
Thereafter, Congress revoked the Greenback Law and enacted, in its place, the National Banking Act. The national banks were to be privately owned and the national bank notes they issued were to be interest-bearing. The Act also provided that the Greenbacks should be retired from circulation as soon as they came back to the Treasury in payment of taxes.
In 1972, the United States Treasury Department was asked to compute the amount of interest that would have been paid if that 400 million dollars would have been borrowed at interest instead of being issued by Abraham Lincoln. They did some computations, and a few weeks later, the United States Treasury Department said the United States Government saved 4 billion dollars in interest because Lincoln had created his own money. So you can about imagine how much the Government has paid and how much we owe solely on the basis of interest.
Garfield: Assassinated: September 19, 1881, Elberon, New Jersey
Garfield was a loyal Unionist who built a reputation as a Civil War hero that earned him a seat in the House of Representatives without ever having campaigned.
During Garfield’s congressional terms, debates raged between legislators who demanded that all U.S. money be backed by gold and the “Silverites” and “Greenbackers,” who wanted to issue paper currency and coin silver more freely in an attempt to alleviate pressing debts, especially those of struggling farmers. Garfield advocated hard money policies backed by gold, making him a favorite with eastern “Gold Bug” Republicans. He opposed cooperative farm programs such as those supported by the Grange, an agrarian organization; labor unions; the eight-hour workday; and federally funded relief projects.
McKinley: Assassinated: September 14, 1901, Buffalo, N.Y.
In 1896, the Republicans again supported McKinley and he was nominated as the Republican presidential contender with Garret Hobart, a New Jersey senator, as his running mate. The Democratic opponents were William Jennings Bryan, a great orator from Nebraska, whose running mate was Arthur Sewall, a wealthy Maine shipbuilder.
McKinley’s platform was based on the protective tariff and the gold standard, which became the main issue of the campaign. Bryan favored an unlimited number of silver coins being made to increase the nation’s money supply. He attracted national attention at the Democratic National Convention with his “cross of gold” speech. Bryan traveled all over the country, traveling 18,000 miles, giving whistle-stop speeches while McKinley conducted a “front-porch” campaign in Canton, partly because he didn’t want to leave his ailing wife.
Over 750,000 people visited Canton to hear him speak. Newspapers nationwide reprinted his speeches. This campaign is noted for being the first one to hand out campaign buttons and memorabilia such as walking sticks, umbrellas, ribbons, soap babies, etc. McKinley won the election with more than 7 million of the nearly 14 million votes.
His priorities as president were to increase the protective tariff and make gold the standard of our money system. The passing of the Dingley Tariff in 1897 increased the tariff, and in 1900 Congress passed the Gold Standard Act.
Kennedy: Assassinated: November 22, 1963, Dallas, Texas
Now batting clean-up, President Kennedy was not afraid to buck the system, for he understood how the Federal Reserve System was being used to destroy the United States. As a just and honorable man, he could not tolerate such a system, for it smelled corruption from A to Z. Certainly he must have known about the Greenbacks which Abraham Lincoln created when he was in office.
On June 4th, 1963, President Kennedy signed a presidential document, called Executive Order 11110, which in itself further amended Executive Order 10289 of September 19th, 1951. This paved the way for the United States Treasury to create his own money, backed by silver, to run the country. This money would belong to the people, an Interest and debt-free money.
It’s alleged that he had printed United States Notes, completely ignoring the Federal Reserve Notes from the private banks of the Federal Reserve.
Allegedly, records show that Kennedy issued $4,292,893,825 of cash money. Some even say it was obvious that Kennedy was out to undermine the Federal Reserve System of the United States.
But it was only a few months later, In November of 1963, that the world received the shocking news of President Kennedy’s assassination. No reason was given, of course, for anyone wanting to commit such an atrocious crime. But for those who knew anything about money and banking, it did not take long to put the pieces of the puzzle together. For surely, President Kennedy must have had It in mind to repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, and return … to the United States Congress the power to create its own money.
It is interesting to note that, only one day after Kennedy’s assassination, all the United States notes, which Kennedy had issued, were called out of circulation. Was this through an executive order of the newly installed president, Lyndon B. Johnson? Was President Johnson afraid of the Bankers? Or was he one of their instruments? At any rate, all of the money President Kennedy had created was destroyed. And not a word was said to the American people.
In this regard, it is worthy of note that Fed. Reserve Biographer – G. Edward Griffin, in his Creature from Jekyll Island, asserts [Pg. 569 The JFK Rumor] that,
There was a third point, however, which everyone seemed to overlook. The Executive Order  did not instruct the Treasury to issue Silver Certificates. It merely authorized it to do so if the occasion should arise.
The occasion never arose. The last issuance of Silver Certificates was in 1957, and that was six years before the Kennedy executive order. In 1987, the order  was rescinded by Executive Order [EO] 12608 signed by President Reagan.
Interestingly, when we check the archives as to what exactly EO 12608 did rescind , we learn that it DID NOT DIRECTLY RESCIND EO 11110 but amended EO 10289. Only since the portion of EO 11110 relating to silver was/became – Paragraph 1[j] of EO 10289 (and EO 10289 1[j] WAS rescinded) , the Treasury’s right to issue silver backed notes was rescinded.
A VERY curious and I would suggest brazenly sneaky way of rescinding an EO without even mentioning the relevant [cancelled] EO by its number!!
Mr. Griffin’s explanation and rationalization of this can be found here.
Rules for enacting EO’s have been in place since June 19, 1962. These rules [Section 2 a of EO 11030] stipulate,
A proposed Executive order or proclamation shall first be submitted, with seven copies thereof, to the Director of the Bureau of the Budget, together with a letter, signed by the head or other properly authorized officer of the originating Federal agency, explaining the nature, purpose, background, and effect of the proposed Executive order or proclamation and its relationship, if any, to pertinent laws and other Executive orders or proclamations.
The rules are clear and they were not followed.
Isn’t it strange that rules relating to who has authority to coin money – were not followed with the passage of EO 12608? Strange that issues relating to OUR money, HOW it’s created and adherence to LAWS in this regard get overlooked.
Despite this, Griffin curiously concludes that EO 11110 was insignificant because it ONLY AUTHORIZED the Treasury to produce constitutionally sound money instead of INSTRUCTING it to do so. If it was insignificant, as Griffin asserts, I ask the question again; why EO 12608 DIDN’T EXPLICITLY and LAWFULLY STATE that it was rescinding EO 11110?
It does not.
Amazingly, this is presented as evidence dispelling the notion that President Kennedy’s demise had anything to do with this act. Doesn’t this omission become even odder when one considers that three prior assassinated Presidents were clearly anti usury and/or sound money advocates? How could a monetary historian skate over this fact with nary a mention?
Where I come from, one-thousand-batting-averages [4 for 4] are never referred to as flukes and are more likely to be generalized as certainties – but it seems the devil is always in the details.
One thing is abundantly clear – the population at large must be educated on the Federal Reserve, and then unite together to put pressure on the Government to get the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 repealed. Otherwise, it will spell disaster for the United States along with the rest of the free world.
1. This is presented for discussion, irrespective of my views on it.
2. Ron Kirby is a mathematician, so his reference to “where I come from” may be with that in mind.
3. The old recurring evidence v tinfoil hat debate raises its head again.
4. There was a recent – I think important – debate at Devil’s Kitchen on libertarianism. The more I think about it, the more I think DK was right to say that OoL is about free speech rather than libertarian principles, i.e. anyone of whatever politics may comment whereas a “libertarian site” would only allow a libertarian point of view to be expressed.
I don’t actually attach value judgements to DK’s view – it seems par for the course and how things are. OoL attaches more value to people being free to comment here than it does to espousing a “libertarian line”. We would say that that is the essence of libertarianism, at grass roots level. Just as many pubs used to be freehouses, so OoL is a freehouse.
If it tends one way mroe than another, that’s because more of that view are writing here. Easily remedied if you’re concerned. Either way, that’s our editorial policy – freedom to speak within the bounds most bloggers apply [see our "one" rule in the sidebar].
It is on that basis that the above argument was put.
