Political discussion and consensus are what America is all about. However such things only have value when they are based upon true and accurate information. One of the problems evident in America today, which is also evident on this message board, is that most of us have little understanding of American history and how it affects current events. Exclusive of our Revolutionary War, the most important event in American history was passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913, because it constituted an overthrow of our government from within by virtue of the fact that it gave a cartel of Bankers control of our government. From 1913 forward, Americans would never again know the truth about how our government functions and why it does what it does. I am sure most of you will disagree with me. However, perhaps you will believe some famous people who spoke on this subject. Benjamin Franklin: The inability of the colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of King George III and the international bankers was the prime reason for the Revolutionary War. Mayer Anselm Rothschild: Permit me to issue and control the money of a Nation and I care not who makes its laws. Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States, 1912 1920: I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit. We are 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. William Lyon MacKenzie King, Former Prime Minister of Canada: Until the control of the issuance of currency and credit is returned to the government and recognized as its most conspicuous and sacred responsibility, all talk of sovereignty and parliamentary democracy is idle and futile. Once a nation parts with control of its credit, it matters not who makes the nations laws. Usury once in control will wreck any nation. David Rockefeller in an address to the Trilateral Commission, 1991: We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the light of publicity during those years. But now the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supra-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries. Any reasonable person examining what these famous people said would conclude that our government was overthrown from within in 1913 by passage of the Federal Reserve Act. Incredibly, the vast majority of Americans have no clue about the dire implication of what occurred. Furthermore, because of this lack of knowledge, we have no idea of what is really happening in the world today or of what our New World Order masters have in store for us. And here we sit, posting on this political message board Messages, smugly thinking are in touch with what is going on in the world.
