The Federal Reserve System

                    The Fed.  A Conglomerate of the biggest financial institutions in the United States designed for one thing.  To use your money to make money, keep you indebted to the state, and make you think you're working for yourself.  Meet our slave owners.
                    The Federal Reserve System is actually the 3rd Central Bank set up in America.  It wasn't a new idea in it's original inception.  It's also been shot down the other 2 times.  This time, it lives on as a beast controlling the lives of every single U.S. Citizen.  The 1st Central Bank of the United States was established in 1791 and ended in 1811.  The 2nd Bank of the United States was established in 1817 and ended in 1836.  Each bank had a 20 year charter & both banks issued currency, made commercial loans, accepted deposits, purchased securities, maintained multiple branches and acted as fiscal agents for the U.S. Treasury.  The Federal Government had to buy 20% of the banks Capital Stock Shares and appoint 20% of the board of directors for both of them.  This yielded something seen as very dangerous.  The majority of control was placed right into the hands of wealthy investors who were actually banking cartels, forcing the common man to maintain & support them.  When the 2nd Bank came up for renewal, It was none other than the Indian Killing Andrew Jackson who vetoed the bill to renew it's lease on America's Money.  He might've been an Indian Killer, but he saw through these leaches.  Andrew Jackson's entire success during his 2nd term, was centered around the Central Banking System.  
 
"Every monopoly and all exclusive privileges are granted at the expense of the public, which ought to receive a fair equivalent.  The many millions which this act proposes to bestow on the stockholders of the existing bank must come directly or indirectly out of the earnings of the American People."
                                                                                            -Andrew Jackson    1832 
                    Almost certainly, behind the military industrial complex, trillion dollar corporations, secret societies, trade markets, & even foreign policy, lies the Shadow that engulfs us all known as The Federal Reserve System.  He who controls the money, controls the power.  The original players are household names which you have heard all your lives.  Names Like: Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Morgans, Warburgs, Harrimans, & Kennedy's were all controlling the Federal Reserve and were there from the inception.  It's entirity falls short of nothing of a total underground or shadow government that directs hundreds of trillions of dollars per year, & the funding would only cost pennies on the dollar.  The people involved are known to own unfathomable wealth, and they keep theirselves entertained with controversial social causes, such as Eugenics, and International Political Operations such as overthrowing governments and so forth.  The entirity of the plot is so pervasive, so totalitarian, that it encompasses a huge international network.  
                    The foundation of any Central Bank is it's promise to provide a Nation with Economic Stability.  In theory, manipulating the value of a currency let's financial spikes to go higher, and economic crashes to be more mild.  If growth becomes speculative and unsustainable, the central bank can make the price of money go up and force some unbalancing of risky investments again, promising to make the economic crashes milder.  In reality, it's a bit more sketchy.  Absolutely America has grown more in the last 100 years than any country ever before her.  It doesn't necessarily bring stability either.  You remember the stock market crash in the 20s?  It was actually orchestrated and manipulated.  The FED was established prior to the Great Depression of the 20s, BUT The Great Depression locked the FED in place.  PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND.

Colonial Banking Prior to the Revolution
Creators of History
Controlled by Aristocrat Money, the East India Trading Co. NOT The British Crown taxed and crippled the American Economy.  King George was forced to sign
Developing a Slave Empire
Taxation without Representation was the Key to the American Revolution & Liberty in the colonies.  The Boston Tea Party wasn't about England.  It was about TEA TAX From the East India Trading Co.

Patsy King George

Being a man of natural sciences, King George the III, was not a man of politics, so he left his politics over key influential areas up to his appointed royal staff who were also his tutors growing up.  He just did not have the intuition and confidence to make good sound decisions.  Instead, he would allow his staff to make the decisions and he would comment on his direction he would like it to go.  His insecurity was his downfall.  This single King is responsible for the Corporate World Today ruling Nations, Instead of Nations Ruling the Corporations.
Sparks of Rebellion
A Rebellion to create a country for people to truly be free from the money enslavers who had enslaved the world for hundres of years.  Who wouldn't Join?
                    As we all learned in grade school, the importance of the Boston Tea Party as the result of the infamous Tea Act of 1773, we have hardly been taught the true history of this event.  Why did Boston Colonists throw tons of tea into the Boston Harbor?  If this would've happened today, the EPA would've been so pissed..  So why did they?  To say, King George we're not drinking your stinking Tea?  We're not paying another tax just to drink your tea and line your pockets?  NO.  As a matter of Fact, the Tea didn't belong to King George.  It belonged to the British East India Trading Company.  The Origins of the Tea Act Actually go back to a hidden agenda that was designed for a Corporation.  British Parliament designed the Tea Act of 1773 so the British East India Trading Company could unload the millions of pounds of unsold tea into it's English Warehouses.  Hmmm..... The Americas were the selected recipients of the tea surplus.  They had to put it somewhere.  No one else was buying it.  Talk about corporate losses.  This tea must've really been shit....  Not really, but it was designed to force the East India Tea on the Americas.  It would be like Chevrolet kicking out all the other Auto Manufacturers in America and forcing Americans to only buy Chevrolets.  See?  And guess what, King George the III did not own a dime's worth of stock in the East India Trading Company.  All of these Commodities Acts of the late 1700s which was forcing the whole "taxation without representation" was being imposed by a Corporation.  Not another "Parent" Country.  The idea of the Parent was just being used to enforce the taxes.  That's it.  The money was going into corporate funds.  Not the King's Pocket.  Big Difference.  Here's another interesting Fact:  British Regular Forces wore Royal Blue Coats!!  The Red Coats, were the private armies of the British East India Company.  This totally changes directions for the whole American Revolution.  So what were they really rebelling against?  I would say it's plain and simple, and it is non other than Corporate Control over Consumers.  What does this have to do with money and a central bank?  Well, he who owns the money, controls the world.  So, that being said,
                    Money in the Colonies was hard to come by.  There was only a certain amount of money in the colonies to begin with.  You either had some or you didn't.  This created poor poor colonies.  Plus, there were no gold or silver mines, and money had to be backed by something.  The only idea that anyone could think of was paper money credits.  This worked and made its way into a leading role in the revolution.  Might've even been the main reason for the revolution who knows.  It created a total free society.  Because Money is the true enslavers.  Think about that.  
Life Prior To
The Federal Reserve Act
The United States of America & The American Dream
"But if you want to continue to be slaves of the banks & pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money and control credit."
                                                                                                                                         -Josiah Stamp
                    The continual occurrence of the financial panics here in the United States during the 19th & early 20th centuries compelled the government to create the National Monetary Commission of 1908 to study the economic problems and create a solution.  The problem with this is, the ultra wealthy investors of the time, were corning markets and causing dives to create the illusion of a crash in a collaboration of about 10 people.  Guess who sat on the Commission?  You guessed it, the same individuals who caused it in the first place.  After several years of Analyzing and Debating, Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.  Now, keep in mind.  The only need for a Central Bank is to stabilize the markets here based on Global Economic Impact.  If you limited your international trading as George Washington advised in his farewell address, we wouldn't have this problem.  
                    For many many years following the American Revolution, in fact we had some good times.  Of course there were other controversies and wars, but for the most part, You made or broke yourself.  You either built your house, traded for what you needed, or worked for your consignments as trade.  Simple system.  We did have currency which was backed by Hard Solid Gold, and we had credit, but people seemed a bit more responsible.   Now the American Way is, If you can't afford it, then finance it!! Back then, people would only finance the necessities.  Now we are financing 70 inch flatscreens at 43.2% interest.  I mean come on.  If you can't afford it, then don't buy it.  It's this way by design.  They want you to consume and be indebted.  Think about it.  
                    Of course, back then there were no televisions or cars.  You hard to work for what you had.  You had to earn it.  You were proud of who you were, and what you stood for, because working back then was fighting.  It was fighting for your survival.  You didn't call up a roofing company to repair a damaged roof.  You went and cut down trees, cut the planks, and made shingles to go over it to keep things dry inside, before the rain season hit, or you were toast.  There was no central heat and air.  You had to begin cutting trees in the dead of summer to get your wood stores built up before the winter hit or you were going to freeze to death.  
                    It was hard.  It was a hard life, but Freedom comes at a price.  With the advent of modern technology, instead of freeing us and sending us to distant galaxies, it's tied us down more and kept us indebted more to people who only consider you as a statistic.  
                    Take a long hard look at how we live.  Right after college, you're indebted anywhere from 20,000-600,000 dollars depending on your place of education just for a collegiate degree.  You start your career in the hole.  Then we see this image of the American Dream, a big house, big fancy cars, financing vacations,  Credit Cards with half a million spending limits.  You are all slaves and you don't even know it.  It's an illusion.  Everyone in the United States today needs to compare us to the slaves way back when.  What's different?  Personal Treatment for one thing.  Conditions are a lot better and more sanitary, but the basics are the same.  Slaves in the past, had a roof over there heads, they had food to eat.  Plus they had a job to go to everyday.  The only thing that is different is the Perception of them and the perception of us.  
                    One of the Rockefellers or Rothschilds or St. Clairs figured out that if they'd give us just a taste, a little teeny weeny taste of what the good life is, they could sell us slavery, make it our idea and get us to pay them to enslave us!!  You know what?  THEY WERE RIGHT!! Look at us now.  We're all just a bunch of slaves.  Jim Morrison of the Doors was right when he said, "You're all a bunch of fucking slaves."
The 1st Organized
Central Bank in America
The First Bank of the United States
Established: 1791
 
                    Envisioned by none other than our Nation's 1st Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, the seeds were planted in 1780 when Hamilton began advocating for the idea of creating a central banking system in the United States.  Hamilton created "The Bank Bill" which was a proposal to institute a national bank in order to provide economic stability after our country gained it's independence.  Designed as a privately owned institution, Hamilton wrote several articles about his idea where expressed the foreseen success attributed to incentives for the rich to invest, ownership of bonds & shares, rooted in fiscal management, & have a stable monetary system.
                    Her original charter was even signed by our 1st President, George Washington and headquarted in Philadephia, Pennsylvania(our 1st nation's capitol & had branches in other major United States Cities.  The bank did the basics of banking tasks such as taking in deposits, issuing bank notes, and making loans as well as purchasing securities.  When it's charter ended 20 years later, it was not renewed and the country went without a Central Bank for several years.  In this period, the economic stability of the United States was not sustaining, but fluctuated and experienced inflation for the 1st time.  
The 2nd Organized
Central Bank in America
Second Bank of the United States
Established: 1816
                    The Successor to the 1st Bank of the United States was yes, the Second Bank of the United States, signed into law James Madison himself.  The Charter was removed in 1833 by Andrew Jackson, 3 years before the charter was set to expire.  It was removed by Jackson in what some term, "The Bank War."  Lead by Jackson, the Democrats were opposed to The Central Banking method because they claimed it allowed economic priviledges on the economic elite(surely not), in which it violated the U.S. Constitutional Principles on Equality.  
                    You see, Jackson might have been an Indian Murderer, but he saw a central banking system for what it was.  The Jackson Democrats considered the central bank to be an illegitmate corporation whose charter violated state sovereignty and therefore it posed an implicit threat to the agriculture-based economy dependent upon the U.S. southern states' widely practiced institution of slavery.  WHAT?  They thought the central bank was infringing on their right to own slaves?  Is that what that stated?  Hmmm...... When they tried to renew the charter in 1836, Jackson vetoed the bill.  His message in veto action, was a polemical declaration of the social philosophy of the Jackson Democratic Movement pitting "regular laymen" against the "interest built elite"and argueing the banks constitutionality.  
                    All of this centered around Jackson's run for his 2nd term, which he won.  Fearing Reprecussions & Reprisals, Jackson removed all federal deposits from the central bank in 1833 and distributed the funds to several dozen privately owned banks throughout the country.  This was seen as an abuse of executive power, and the creation of the "New Whig Party" was born as a result.  The higher ups of the central bank retalliated by contracting Bank credit, inducing a serious and protracted financial downturn.  This in effect set in through out the country and America's financial and business centers were pitted against the upper elite's in a financial warfare causing the Bank to reverse it's money policies.  By the end of 1834, renewing the charter was lost.  Rather than allow it to lay to the side in ashes, it was reduced to a state chartered corporation in Pennsylvania just weeks before it's federal charter would expire in 1836.  The bank finally died out and in 1841 it was liquidated of all it's assets.  Jackson and his Democrats won the Bank War.
Resurrection of the Beast
The Federal Reserve System
Established: December 23, 1913
                    It was the Panic of 1907.  It took 3 weeks in the middle of October.  The New York Stock Exchange fell 50% from it's peak the previous year.  When this happened, Panic occurred and the country was thrown into an economic recession, and there were numerous runs on banks and trust companies.  It eventually spread throughout the country and forced many state, local banks, & businesses to enter bankruptcy.  Hmmm... Sounds like an economic manipulation.  Primary causes of the run was retraction of market liquidity by a number of New York City banks and loss of confidence among depositors, exacerbated by unregulated side bets at bucket shops.  What does this mean?  Well, the New York Banks were owned by the Morgans, Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Harrimans, and many other financial elites, who had the money to force selling on the stock market.  The panic was triggered by the failed attempt in October 1907 to corner the market on stock of the United Copper Company.  When the bid failed, banks that had lent money to the cornering scheme suffered runs that later spread to affiliated banks and trusts, leading a week later to the downfall of the Knickerbocker Trust Company(New York City's 3rd Largest Trust(The competition).  The collapse of the trust spread fear throughout the city's trusts as regional banks withdrew reserves from New York City banks.  Panic extended across the nation as a vast number of people withdrew deposits from their regional banks.  Who interveined and bailed out the country?  None other than Mr. J.P. Morgan Himself.
                    On the great barrier island known as Jekyll Island,  there met a coalition of Wall Street bankers and U.S. Senators.  This secret meeting held in 1910, had a purpose.  The bankers wanted to establish a new central bank under the direct control of New York's financial Elitests.  This plan would Wall Street Bankers total control of the financial system and allow them to manipulate it for their own personal gain.
                    Prior to the Civil War, there were thousands of banks working throughout the Union, all of them licensed by the state governments.  There were no banking regulationsThe federal government had no meaningful controls on banking practices, and state regulations were spotty and poorly enforced at best.  Historians on the Economy call the era leading up to the Civil War as the "state banking era" or the "Free Banking Era."  
                    The biggest problem with state banking was, the nation had no uniformed currency.  State banks issued their own bank notes as currency, a system which at worst invited severe bouts of counterfeiting and at best introduced additional uncertainty in determining the relative value of each bank note(dollar).  With no mediating influence on the notes issuance, the money supply and the price level were highly unstable, introducing and perhaps causing additional volatility in the business cycle.  Plus, the frequent bank runs resulted in substantial depositor losses and severe crises of confidence in the payment system.  
                    The idea of a central bank, not all that bad, posed to remedy all this uncertainty and stabalize the economy.  There were 2 national banking acts of 1863 & 1864.  These were attempts at starting a central banks but didn't work, but it was in an attempt to keep the union from having to borrow this New York Money to fund the Union side of the Civil War.  
 
                    Their 3 main goals:  1) create a system of national banks(this way a man in Boston could deposit money, travel to Philadelphia and withdraw his money.  2) Create a Uniform National Currency(So we could all trade with each other.  3) Create an active Secondary Market for Treasury Securities to help finance the Civil War(on the side of the Union) so money would not have to be borrowed from New York.
 
                    The Meeting:  in 1910, Senator Nelson Aldrich, Frank Vanderlip of National City(today known as Citibank), Henry Davison of Morgan Bank, and Paul Warburg of the Kuhn, Loeb Investment House met secretly at Jekyll Island, Georgia to discuss and formulate banking reform, including plans for a style of central banking.  The meeting was held in secret because they knew that any plan of this nature would be shot down by the House if it included people from Wall Street.  They produced the Aldrich plan.
                    The Aldrich Plan called for a system of fifteen regional central banks, called National Reserve Associations, whose actions would be coordinated by a National Board of Commercial Bankers.  The Reserve Association as it was known, would make emergency loans to member banks, create money to provide an elastic currency that could be exchanged equally for demand deposits, and would act as a fiscal agent for the federal government.  Although it was defeated, the Aldrich Plan served as an outline for the bill that eventually was adopted.  
                    The legislation that eventually emerged was the Federal Reserve Act, also known at the time as the Currency Bill, or Owen-Glass Act.  The bill called for a system of 8-12 mostly autonomous regional Reserve Banks that would be owned by the banks in their region and whose actions would be coordinated by a Federal Reserve Board appointed by the President.  The Board's members originally included the Secretary of the Treasury, the Comptroller of the Currency, and other officials appointed by the PResident to represent public interests.  THe proposed Federal Reserve System would therefore be privately owned, but controlled publicly.  It was signed into action on December 23, 1913.         
             
      Now the truth about the Fed,
 
The Federal Reserve System, Evil by Nature, is neither "federal," nor does it have any "reserves."  It is a system of PRIVATE BANKS owned by rich foreign and American bankers.  It is the largest scam ever perpetuated upon the American Citizens.  The Fed IS the reason we have inflation, a huge national debt that will never be paid off, because they make trillions of dollars every year from us, average Americans being in debt.  Even though the Chairman of the Federal Reserve is appointed by the president, the Government does not control the FED.  The illusion is created so that it appears that way on your nightly news, but in reality, the FED controls the Government.  The FED controls our Government, Currency, & believe it or not, politicians.  That little meeting on Jekyll Island, was actually owned by 2 guys, William Rockefeller & J.P. Morgan.  Their families would go there during the winter to escape the coldness of New England.  On the island, was the clubhouse which was the center of all their social gatherings.  The Island has since been sold to the State of Georgia and the clubhouse has even been restored.  There in the room, there is a plaque on the wall which reads, "In this room the Federal Reserve System was Created."  In November of 1910, Senator Nelson Aldrich rode from New Jersey to Georgia with 6 others under the cloak of darkness and went to Jekyll Island.  They were instructed to arrive separately at the station, not eat together, don't speak to one another, and act as if they were total strangers.  They were instructed to avoid newspaper reporters, who would've wondered why prominent business men were all traveling together.  Once they got on the train, they were told to keep it to a first name basis and not even utter their last names.  Once they arrived at Jekyll Island, they spent a week hammering out the details of the Aldrich Plan which would eventually develop into the Federal Reserve Act.  They even denied for several years there was even a meeting.  It wasn't until after the System was established in 1913 that they began to talk about their secret trip.  They wrote books later, so it is all now public record.
