You can rob a bank with a gun but you can rob the world with a bank

"We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent." --(Jewish Banker Paul Warburg, February 17, 1950, as he testified before the U.S. Senate).

In our time, the curse is monetary illiteracy, just as inability to read plain print was the curse of earlier centuries. ----Ezra Pound

“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson.”
-Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1933-Nov-21, in a letter to Colonel E. Mandell House

“The Federal Reserve Banks are one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever seen. There is not a man within the sound of my voice who does not know that this Nation is run by the International Bankers.”
-Congressman Louis T. McFadde

Well they had a secret meeting at the millionaires club, on Thanksgiving of 1910, at Jekyll Island, Georgia. Which, at that time, the members of the Jekyll Island club controlled one-sixth of the wealth of the entire world. These people were very powerful: Rockefeller, Morgan, Aldrich... The same people, by the way, the same banking houses, which are running the world today, they got together in 1910. And this "federal reserve" was simply a takeover scheme! It was sort of like a Mafia group of chieftains, getting together for the biggest robbery in history! [Interview 2003]  by Tom Valentine

Paul Warburg was born in Germany, he was a naturalized American citizen...... the Federal Reserve System was modeled very closely after the Bank of England. It was what the textbooks call a "central bank". That's just a code word. It doesn't really mean anything. It's not a bank at all....... What it basically is, is a cartel - it's a partnership between the government and the private banks. ......the cartel went into partnership with the federal government - and cartels like to do that because only governments can enforce the cartel agreements. ....... In this case, the banking cartel was very eager to get the United States government into the contract so that all of the banks - once they were in the cartel - had to follow the cartel agreements or else they would be violating the law and then the police could be brought after them.....cartels always have an affinity to government to enforce their cartel agreement. Interview with G. Edward Griffin, Author of 'The Creature from Jekyll Island'

it finally dawned on me that it really doesn't make any difference what we know about these problems if we don't do anything about it. And that led me to the question: what is it that one can do about these things? And up until that time, I had been pretty much following the line that, well, if we are just informed, the truth will set us free. And it finally dawned on me: that is a myth. The truth alone is not going to set anybody free. Truth is often shackled in chains by a tyrannical system. It's up to the people who know the truth to get off their chairs and do something about it. Interview with G. Edward Griffin, Author of 'The Creature from Jekyll Island'

the first thing they were trying to hide at that meeting was the fact that the Federal Reserve System was written BY the money trust. The people who attended that meeting were the epitome of the money trust. These were literally the wealthiest men in the world. When you added up the wealth which was controlled by the seven men who went to that meeting .....they represented, approximately one-fourth of the wealth of the entire world. We're talking about the J. P. Morgan dynasty, the Rockefeller dynasty, Kuhn Loeb & Company, the Rothschilds from Europe, and the Warburgs from Germany and the Netherlands. These were the people who were represented at that meeting, and they are the ones who created the Federal Reserve System - supposedly - to break the grip of the money trust. Interview with G. Edward Griffin, Author of 'The Creature from Jekyll Island'

At the turn of the century, people like Rockefeller and Morgan and Carnegie had decided that since they were at the top of the heap, they didn't want any more competition. They wanted to put an end to competition. ......when you look at these men sitting around the table at a clubhouse on Jekyll Island, all of a sudden you realize, "Oh my gosh, the Federal Reserve System is a CARTEL." And that is exactly what it is. It is not a government agency. It is a cartel no different than the banana cartel, the oil cartel, or any other. It just happens to be a banking cartel. That is the second thing that emerges from the study of what happened on Jekyll Island. Interview with G. Edward Griffin, Author of 'The Creature from Jekyll Island'

It was Paul Warburg who was a master at all of this. I think he had more experience with this central bank mechanism than all of the rest of them put together. So he was the technician - but also, we mustn't forget that all throughout his business career he maintained a close relationship with his brother, Max Warburg, who was head of the Warburg Banking Consortium in Germany and the Netherlands. Not only that, he was a senior partner in Kuhn-Loeb & Company, which was one of the giant investment firms in New York, and as such they handled the financial affairs of the Rothschilds. So, he was well-connected at several different levels, as you can imagine. Paul Warburg is really the role model for the Little Orphan Annie caricature called "Daddy Warbucks". Everybody at the time knew that Paul Warburg was "Daddy Warbucks". Interview with G. Edward Griffin, Author of 'The Creature from Jekyll Island'

In 1913, the Morgans were the dominant American banking influence. Before I say anything more, you should know that J. P. Morgan was really - most biographers say and have said of him - that he was probably an agent of the Rothschilds. Interview with G. Edward Griffin, Author of 'The Creature from Jekyll Island'

So, in any event, in 1913, it was pretty clear that J. P. Morgan - The House of Morgan - was the dominant banking influence. But today, that seems to have shifted to the Rockefellers. There's no doubt in my mind today that the Rockefellers are the dominant banking force in the United States Interview with G. Edward Griffin, Author of 'The Creature from Jekyll Island'

“... the powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.”
-Prof. Carroll Quigley, author of Tragedy and Hope (1966)

"I am now quite sure that Tragedy and Hope was suppressed although I do not know why or by whom"
-Carroll Quigley, in a letter to a friend

“...the increase in the assets of the Federal Reserve Banks from 143 million dollars in 1913 to 45 billion dollars in 1949 went directly to the private stockholders of the [Federal Reserve] banks.”
-Eustace Mullins, The Federal Reserve Conspiracy

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs.”
-Thomas Jefferson

“Communism is not [and never was] a creation of the masses to overthrow the Banking establishment, but rather a creation of the Banking establishment to overthrow and enslave the people.”
-Anthony J. Hilder

“Although Communism, like other `isms,' had origined with Marx's association with the House of Rothschild, it enlisted the reverent support of John D. Rockefeller because he saw Communism for what it is, the ultimate monopoly, not only controlling the government, the monetary system and all property, but also a monopoly which, like the corporations it emulates, is self-perpetuating and eternal. It was the logical progression from his Standard Oil monopoly.”
-Eustace Mullins, chapter 10 (“The Rockefeller Syndicate”), of Murder by Injection

“These are the rules of big business. They have superseded the teachings of our parents and are reducible to a simple maxim: Get a monopoly; let Society work for you; and remember that the best of all business is politics, for a legislative grant, franchise, subsidy or tax exemption is worth more than a Kimberly or Comstock lode, since it does not require any labor, either mental or physical, for its exploitation.”
-Frederick C. Howe, in Confessions of a Monopolist (1906)
