Famous Quotations on Money
“The Federal Reserve (privately owned banks) is one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever seen.” - Senator Louis T. McFadden (Chairman of the U.S. Banking and Currency Commission)
“If two parties, instead of being a bank and an individual, were an individual and an individual, they could not inflate the circulating medium by a loan transaction, for the simple reason that the lender could not lend what he didn’t have, as banks can and do….Only commercial banks and trust companies can lend money which they manufacture by lending it.” - Professor Irving Fisher, Yale University, in his book, 100% Money
“The people can and will be furnished with a currency as safe as their own Government. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity. Democracy will rise superior to money power.” - Abraham Lincoln
“Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes it’s laws…” - Mayer Amschel Rothschild
“All the perplexities, confusion, and distress in America arise, not from the defects in the Constitution or confederation, not from want of honour or virtue, so much as from downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation.” - President John Adams
“The only honest dollar is the dollar of stable, debt paying purchasing power. The only honest dollar is the dollar which repays the creditor the value he lent and no more, and requires the debtor to pay the value borrowed and no more.” - Senator Robert L. Owens
“I believe the 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 restored to the people to whom it properly belongs.” - President Thomas Jefferson
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 (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. - Thomas Jefferson
“Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce.” - President James Garfield
“If Congress has the fright under the Constitution to issue paper money, it was given to be used by themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations.” - President Andrew Jackson
“My agency, in promoting the passage of the National Bank Act, was the greatest financial mistake of my life. It has built up a monopoly which affects every interest in the country. It should be repealed; but before that can be accomplished, the people will be arrayed on one side and the banks on the other, in a contest such as we have never seen before in this country.” -Salmon P. Chase
“Under the Federal Reserve Act, panics are scientifically created; the present panic is the first scientifically created one, worked out just as we figure a mathematical problem.” - Hon. Charles Lindbergh, Sr. writing on the panic of 1920
“The youth who can solve the money question will do more for the world than all the professional soldiers of history.” - Henry Ford Sr.
“If all bank loans were paid, no one would have a bank deposit, and there would not be a dollar of currency or coin in circulation. This is a staggering thought. We are completely dependent on the commercial banks. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash or credit. If the banks create ample synthetic money, we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent monetary system. When one gets a complete grasp upon the picture, the tragedy and absurdity of our hopeless position is almost incredible – but here it is. It (the banking system) is the most important object
intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it is widely understood and the defects remedied very soon.” - Robert Hemphill, for 8 years credit manager of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta
“The money power prays upon the nation in times of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces, as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes.”- Abraham Lincoln
The London Times printed the following during the Civil War: “If that mischevious financial policy, which had it’s origins in the North American Republic, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish it’s own money without cost. It will pay off debts without a debt. 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 the whole of Christendom into wars and chaos in order that the earth should become their inheritance.” - Bismarck
“We have stricken the (slave) shackles from four million human beings and brought all labourers to a common level, not so much by the elevation of former slaves as by practically reducing the working populace, white and black, to a condition of serfdom. While boasting of our noble deeds, we are careful to conceal the ugly fact that by our iniquitous money system we have nationalized a system of oppression which though more refined, is no less cruel than the old system of chattel slavery.” - Horace Greeley
“The Federal Reserve Banking is nothing but a banking fraud and an unlawful crime against Civilization, Why? Because they “create” the money made out of nothing, and our Uncle Sap Government issues their “Federal Reserve Notes” and stamps our Government approval with no obligation whatever from these Federal Reserve Banks, Individual Banks or National Banks etc..”
H.L. Barnum, Sr., American Mercury, August 1957, p. 43 ”You will recall that the first act of Marxists, who were surreptitiously infiltrated into key positions in our Government in 1933, was to depreciate the dollar and deny to the American people the right of redemption because these conspirators had learned from Karl Marx that the surest way to overturn the social order was to debauch the currency. To accomplish this they installed the Laski-Keynes-Marxist monetary system of a so called “managed currency”. - Hon. John T. Wood, American Mercury, 1957, p. 145
The Duke of Bedford, realizing the enormity of the sell out to the international bankers, made the following remarks before the House of Lords on December 17th, 1945, at the time the Bretton Woods proposal was before the British Government:
“I find that opposition to the Bretton Woods scheme, which is one of the conditions of the loan, is almost universal among people of widely different political and economic outlook…I find that the really fine and enlightened people of America are as much against Bretton Woods and all that it stands for as I am….then there is the very grave objection indeed that we are proposing to hand over the control of our economic life, in a very large measure, to a gang of representatives of Wall Street finance, who are responsible to no one and are above every Government.” - Duke of Bedford, American Mercury, April 1957, p. 137
“The few who can understand the system (check money and credits, will either be so interested in it’s profits, or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no oppositions from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.” - Rothschild Brothers of London
“It is the people who constitute the basis of Government credit. Why then cannot the people have benefit of their own gilt-edge credit by receiving non-interest bearing currency-instead of bankers receiving the benefit of the people’s credit in interest-bearing bonds. If the United States Government will adopt this policy of increasing its national wealth without contributing to the interest collector-for the whole national debt is made up on interest charges-then you will see an era of progress and prosperity in this country such as could never have come otherwise.” - Thomas A. Edison
We quote from “The History of Money in the United States” by Willis A. Overholser, LLB.: - “One of the most devastating manipulation of the Federal Reserve System occurred during the year 1920. On May 18, 1920, the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Advisory Council met in Washington, at which time resolutions were passed, ordering the pursuance of a drastic policy of deflation for the avowed purpose of reducing prices and wages.”
At the Goldsborough hearing in Congress on April 14th, 1932, one very reliable witness is reported to have testified that he went to Mr. Williams in February 1920, and asked Mr. Williams when the Federal Reserve Board was going to start to deflate. Mr. Williams with tears in his eye, said they were going to begin on May 18th, 1920, Mr Williams is alleged to have told the Federal Reserve Board: “you will bust a great many Country banks,” and he was answered, “It don’t make a damn bit of difference; there are too many of them already.” He then told the Board, ”you are going to ruin a lot of farmers throughout the Country,” to which he was answered, “well, they have made so much money they won’t work-let them bust.” This action of the Federal Reserve has been referred to as “The Crime of ’20.” Within a period of approximately a year there after, the amount of Federal Reserve Notes in circulation was reduced by a billion dollars or more. In addition to that, loans were called and credit was drastically contracted, thus creating the depression of 1921. During that depression hundreds of banks in the West were broken and thousands of farmers were forced into bankruptcy. As Mr. Leslie Erickson has stated in his book entitled: The Bankers Racket, “Billions of dollars for the speculator but not a dollar for the farmer, the toiled or the industrialist.”
Imagine making the people pay a usurious tribute to the banks for the use of their own money! The biblical injunctions against usury have been flaunted in the most contemptuous manner. In Leviticus 25:35 to 37, God has commanded:
“And if the brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee. Take thou no usury of him, or increase, but fear thy God; that thy brothers may live with thee. Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase.”
Usury is also strongly condemned in many other parts of the Bible. It is difficult to understand how we can class ourselves as a Christian and Godly civilization when we pursue a nation on a course such as this. Our banker “money” system is THE great usury conspiracy. It makes usury an inherent part of our system. It is economically unsound, and is wicked, vicious and defenceless method of exploitation. It is contrary to the laws of reason, to the laws of nature and to the laws of God. Such violation of the laws of nature and of God could only have resulted in bringing the great curses upon our civilization known as “depressions.” The Communists want us to be drowned in an ocean of worthless currency. The privately owned Federal Reserve System (created by Paul Moritz Warburg, agent for the Rothschild’s), stands ready to create that ocean. - Major George Racey Jordan
“The invisible Money Power is working to control and enslave mankind. It financed Communism, Marxism, Zionism and Socialism. All of these are directed to making the United States a member of a World Government in which we will have only 1 vote to oppose 82 nations.” - American Mercury, December 1957
“Anyone who claims that he is fighting the Money Monopoly while refusing to advocate the distribution of money power from that Monopoly to the people is, because he misleads others; a dangerous fool, if he is not a rogue; and the more powers of persuasion he has, the more dangerous is he. It is the Money Power which is the real enemy of British Empire and people.” - Candour Magazine, London
“From the testimony of Marriner Eccles, Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, before the House Banking and Currency Committee, Sept. 30th, 1941.
Congressman Patman: - “Mr. Eccles, how did you get the money to buy those two billion of Government securities?”
Eccles: - ”We created it.”
Patman: - “Out of what?”
Eccles: - ”Out of the right to issue credit money.”
“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of slight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in iniquity and born in sin….Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them but leave them the power to create money, and, with a flick of the pen…they will create enough money to buy it back again….Take this great power away from them and all great fortunes like mine will disappear (he was said to be the second richest man in Great Britain, next to Rothschild of course) and they ought to disappear, for then this would be a better and happier world to live in….but, if you want to continue to be the slaves of the bankers, and pay the costs of your own slavery, then let the bankers continue to create money and control credit.” - Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the bank of England.
“I set to work to read the Act of Parliament by which the Bank of England was created. The investors knew what they were about. Their design was to mortgage by degrees the whole of the country…lands…houses…property…labour. The scheme has produced what the world never saw before – starvation in the midst of abundance.” - William Cobbett, “The Political Register”, XVIII, July 14th, 1810.
From the “Deserted Village”….
“Ill fares the land to hastening ill a prey,
where wealth accumulates and men decay.
Princes and Lords may flourish or may fade,
A breath can make them, as a breath has made:
but a bold peasantry, their country’s pride,
when once destroyed can never be supplied.
A time there was, ere England’s grief began,
When every road of ground maintained its man:
For him light labour spread her wholesome store,
Just gave what life required, but grave no more,
His best companions, innocence and health,
And his best riches, ignorance of wealth.
But times are altered: trade’s unfeeling train
Usurp the land and dispossess the swain.”
Oliver Goldsmith 1700 A.D.
”Whether it be not a might privelege for a private person to create a hundred pounds with a dash of his pen.” - Bishop Berkeley of Cloyne, 1735
“Can anything be more absurd than that a nation should apply to an individual to maintain its credit, and with it’s credit, its existence and its comfort as a people?” - Lionel Rothschild: quoted by Benjamin D’Israeli in 1844
“To talk about regularization of banks means either to betray complete ignorance or to fool the simple folk with high sounding words. To control the delivery of bread, or in general, the production and distribution of goods, without controlling banking practices, is an absurdity.” - Ulyanov Lenin; Pravda, may 29-30, 1917.
“it is an absurdity that private individuals should have the power to create the Unit of Exchange…” - Opening line of a speech given by David Astle in 1962 in Toronto
Did you know that the “Bank” of England was supposedly created in 1694 A.D. to enable the King to repay 1.5 million pounds lent to him to continue the war with France?
These are the most profound statements that I have found on the banking scam. Each man woman and child in the world should know what is controlling their governments behind the scenes.
