CHAPTER ONE: THE JOURNEY
The spiritual roots of the New World Order can be traced back to the biblical stories of the expulsion of Lucifer from heaven and the building of the Tower of Babel in Babylon. The economic and political roots can be found in the great empires of the ancient world--Egyptian, Sumerian, Chinese, Persian, Roman, Byzantine, and others. All of these were based on conquest by force of arms, and all eventually perished.
The modern history of the New World Order is based on a different concept--obtaining control of the world by first gaining control of human minds and then gradually expanding economic and political control until domination of the masses by the elite is complete.
Let's begin our journey in the year 1776, when three significant events took place. Adam Smith wrote his classic treatise, The Wealth of Nations, which advocated economic freedom and free trade. In America, the Continental Congress issued the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, which declared the colonies to be politically free from England and which formalized the Revolutionary War, begun the previous year by the fighting at Lexington and Concord. On May 1, 1776, Adam Weishaupt formed a secret society called the Order of the Illuminati.
The Order of the Illuminati
Adam Weishaupt (1748-1811) was born to Jewish parents but ostensibly became a Roman Catholic. He became Professor of Canon Law at the University of Ingolstadt, Munich, Bavaria, a Jesuit school. He was interested in occult religions and was really a Satanist, rather than a Jew or Christian. He conceived of an idea for world domination by way of the mind control process mentioned earlier. Being a Freemason, he adapted the Masonic concept of progression through a series of secret rituals to higher levels of inner secrets. He received financing from Meyer Amschel Rothschild, scion of the financial dynasty which has been consistently at the center of the New World Order ever since.
The Order of the Illuminati (which means illuminated or enlightened ones) had six basic objectives in its plan of world conquest: 1. abolition of all existing governments and the establishment of a one-world supergovernment, 2. abolition of inheritance, 3. abolition of private property, 4. abolition of patriotism, 5. abolition of the family, 6. abolition of freedom.
The Order was exposed in 1785 by a curious event. One of the members, Jacob Lang, was struck and killed by lightning when he was on his rounds to infiltrated Masonic organizations. Secret papers were found on his person. The Elector of Bavaria launched an investigation of the Order and banned it in 1786. The conspirators went even deeper into hiding and their plans were carried on by other secret societies. One of these was the Jacobin Society in France, which played a key role in the French Revolution in 1789 and its infamous Reign of Terror.
A later branch of the Order is the League of the Just, of which Karl Marx was a leading member. It is no coincidence that his Communist Manifesto (1848), which we will discuss later, is remarkably similar to the objectives of the Illuminati.
The present-day successor to the Order of the Illuminati is the Committee of 300, an outgrowth of the British East India Company, which today is the central coordinating organization of the New World Order.
The Rothschild Dynasty
Meyer Amschel Bauer (1743-1812) was a goldsmith in Frankfort, Germany. Goldsmiths minted and stored gold coins for their customers and gradually became merchant bankers. They developed the concept of fractional reserve banking, by which they made loans far in excess of their gold holdings, knowing from experience that only a few customers would want to take possession of their gold at any given moment of time. The symbol outside of Bauer's shop was a red shield. Bauer changed the family name to Rothschild, the German word for red shield. Thus began the largest financial dynasty in the history of the world.
Meyer had five sons. He set them up with banking businesses in five large European cities. The Rothschild family specialized in making large loans to governments, usually to finance wars and gradually came to exert enormous influence in political affairs. Their power was magnified by their influence over, or control of, central banks. They have a passion for secrecy and usually work behind the scenes through various agents. Meyer Amschel Rothschild once commented ``Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws.''
International bankers operate on a variation of the Golden Rule: he who has the gold, rules. Throughout history, you will see the central importance of money in the big picture. A good rule for keeping track of the inner workings of the conspiracy is this: follow the money.
Events in America
Returning to our review of early American history, the Declaration of Independence in 1776 formalized the Revolutionary War with England, the world's most powerful military force at the time. George Washington lead a poorly-equipped militia which consisted of about 3% of the colonial population. He was a very devout man and prayed to God for an hour or more every day. Actually most of our founding fathers were very religious.
On November 15, 1777, the Continental Congress adopted the Articles of Confederation to coordinate the efforts of the thirteen sovereign colonies.
In 1781, the Continental Congress chartered the Bank of North America. This was our country's first central bank. Due to the exigencies of war, the bank issued paper money far in excess of its holdings of gold. The resulting inflation lead quickly to a nearly worthless currency and the expression ``not worth a Continental.''
On October 19, 1781, General Cornwallis surrendered to General Washington at Yorktown, the last major battle of the Revolutionary War. As time went on, it became apparent that the Articles of Confederation did not give the national government enough powers to be effective. A convention was called in 1787 for the purpose of amending these Articles. The convention met in Philadelphia from May 25 to September 17, 1787. It went far beyond its assigned task and drafted what is now known as the Constitution of the United States of America. This document increased the powers of the federal government, giving it the power to raise certain taxes but still left most of the power in the hands of the states and ultimately the people.
Our Constitution was ratified by the ninth state on June 21, 1788, and was declared to be effective on March 4, 1789. George Washington was inaugurated as our first President on April 30, 1789.
Congress submitted the first ten amendments to the Constitution, known as the Bill of Rights, on September 25, 1789. They were adopted on December 15, 1791. It should be emphasized that these rights were the unalienable rights granted to the people by God, not by the government. The Bill of Rights expressly prohibits the government from infringing on these rights.
Also in 1791, the Coinage Act of 1791 was passed. This Act established the exact amounts of gold or silver in each denomination of coin. This Act was never repealed.
Another event in 1791 was the chartering of the first Bank of the United States for a 20-year period. This was promoted by Alexander Hamilton, then Secretary of Treasury, one of the first advocates of big government. Actually this was our second central bank, the Bank of North America being the first.
In 1792, the Coinage Act of 1792 was passed. This allowed free coinage, by which citizens could bring their gold or silver bullion to a U. S. mint to have it made into coins for a nominal charge. It also set the relative value of gold to silver at 15 to 1.
On September 19, 1796, President Washington gave his farewell address. Prophetically, he gave strong warnings against permanent alliances with foreign powers, big public debt, a large military establishment and the devices of a small, artful, enterprising minority to control or change our government.
The first major attack on the Constitution was the U. S. Supreme Court case, Marbury v. Madison, decided on February 24, 1803. Chief Justice John Marshall and his Federalist colleagues declared that the Supreme Court had the authority to declare the acts of Congress unconstitutional. No Constitutional authority was cited for this opinion and for good reason -- there is none. Actually this power remains with the people in accordance with the Tenth Amendment and is supposed to be implemented by citizens in their capacity as grand jurors or trial jurors.
The Founding Fathers were men of great wisdom and political experience. They were especially aware of the many abuses of government and clearly had no intention of letting nine non-elected lawyers overrule a much larger elected Congress. The proper function of courts is to serve in a capacity similar to umpires in a baseball game, making decisions as things happen rather than making up the rules of the game as they go.
If you stop and think about it, the whole idea of ``case law'' is rather silly. What you end up with is a huge body of ``law'' consisting of mutually contradictory opinions of different judges on almost every point, resulting in an incomprehensible mess rather than a guide to proper behavior.
Banking and the War of 1812
In 1811, Congress refused to renew the charter of the first Bank of the United States, so the nation was once again free of a central bank. This greatly displeased the international bankers in London and lead directly to a British attempt to recapture her former American colonies.
The War of 1812 began on June 18, 1812. In this same year, Napoleon invaded Russia and was ultimately forced to retreat. The war continued until December 24, 1814, concluding with the Treaty of Ghent. The United States survived its first major challenge.
In America, the Federalists continued to press for a central bank. In 1816, the Second Bank of the United States was chartered for twenty years. Thus we had our third central bank. On March 4, 1829, Andrew Jackson was inaugurated President. He was a strong opponent of central banks and all of their financial shenanigans. Being aware of the growing popular opposition to their activities, the bankers persuaded Congress to renew the charter of the Second Bank of the United States for another twenty years in 1832, even though the current charter then had four more years to run. President Jackson vetoed that bill and Congress did not override him. As a result, the Bank continued on until its charter expired in 1836.
From 1836 until 1913, when the Federal Reserve Act was snuck through Congress, the United States did not have a central bank. It is no coincidence that this period of time marked the greatest real economic growth in the history of our nation. There was sound banking, virtually no inflation and very little unemployment.
The Communist Manifesto
In 1848, Karl Marx and Frederick Engels published The Communist Manifesto. It expanded on the objectives of the Order of the Illuminati, described earlier. Its ten main points were as follow:
1. Abolition of property in land and the application of all rents of land to public purposes.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the State by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
6. Centralization of the means of communications and transport in the hands of the State.
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands and the improvement of soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equitable distribution of population over the country.
10. Free education for all children in public schools.
It is scary how much this sounds like the Democratic and Republican party platforms today and President Clinton's recent Executive Order 12919, which establishes a virtual dictatorship on the American economy at the whim of the President." (snip) ...
