The Panic of 1907 & the history of the Banking System
‘THE PANIC OF 1907’, OCTOBER 22ND, 1907
With the stock market dropping almost 50%, many bankers called for a new central bank. But what really happened on October 22nd, 1907?
This year passed the 106th Anniversary of the ‘Panic of 1907’ on October 22nd. The ‘Panic of 1907’ was a 50% drop in the stock market from the previous peak one year prior. (1) The traditional view is that there was a scheme to corner the stock of the United Copper Company which failed and destroyed the Knickerbocker Trust Company which was New York’s third largest trust. This is considered the trigger of the ‘Panic of 1907’ which led to bankruptcies, bank runs and mass panic. (2) (3)
Furthermore, JP Morgan is credited for stepping in and injecting money into the system to calm the banking system. (4) He was considered the hero of the ‘Panic of 1907’. Historians also blame the absence of a central bank to inject money into the system to calm the markets. (5) Andrew Jackson, known for the man who had “killed the 2nd Bank of the United States and America” was without a central bank ever since. (6) The ‘Panic of 1907’ led to the creation of a new private central bank, the Federal Reserve Bank which was established in 1913. (7)
JP Morgan may not have been the savior of the panic, but the culprit. Evidence suggests JP Morgan may have created the panic, while posing as the “savior” to establish the Federal Reserve Bank in 1913 which would serve his own interests. It is believed JP Morgan allowed the false rumors of his competitor the Knickerbocker Trust Company to spiral out of control which ultimately created the Panic of 1907. Many believe that the intervention of the Treasury by suspending obligatory payments for large banks of Chicago and New York helped bring about the panic.
What isn’t discussed about the early 1900’s is independent reserve ratios and small competitive banks that were beginning to steal the market from the large banks like JP Morgan. The reserve ratios were determined by each individual bank instead of a central bank which meant the free market determined reserve ratios at each individual bank instead of a central bank determining the reserve ratio for all banks in the nation. (8) The alternative view of history is that the larger banks felt the squeeze, created a panic and posed as the saviors to create a new central bank to control reserve ratios and eliminate competition from the previous American system of governance and control.
First of all, there were other events during this time that also caused devastation in the market. In 1906 for example, there was a major earthquake in San Francisco which burst gas and water lines which caused half the city to burn and cost the economy and the city millions of dollars (which would be billions in today’s money). (9) Second, new legislation was passed that created great harm to the markets. In 1906 the Hepburn Act was passed which allowed the Interstate Commerce Commission to set price controls on rail rates which caused the railroad stocks to tank. (10) (11)
Picture of United Copper Company stock that triggered the panic
With the railroad stocks tanking and the economy faltering from these two major events, the United Copper Company came under pressure from short sellers. So the majority holding Heinze Brothers tried to squeeze the short sellers out of their positions but failed. This caused the stock to go from $36 up to $60, and then all the way down to $10. The Heinze Brothers couldn’t cover their positions and the scheme failed. (12)
This is where the controversy begins. The panic technically didn’t start when the United Copper Company stock plummeted, but when the Knickerbocker Trust Company was destroyed. So the question is this, did the failure of the United Copper Company cause the failure of the Knickerbocker Trust Company? According to many historians, the answer is yes. However, some historians argue that a the failure of the United Copper Company did not affect the Knickerbocker Trust Company, and that a rumor was started to create a “selloff” of the Knickerbocker Trust Company. According to some historians, panic from a rumor destroyed the Knickerbocker Trust Company and that the collapse of the United Copper Company didn’t actually threaten the company. If this is true, who would have started the rumor?
J.P. Morgan photographed, in a rare true look at his face & nose. Morgan despised being photographed due to a disease on his face. He would have all his photos touched up in black room ‘burning and dodging’ early ‘photo-shop’ days.
Fredrick Allen wrote of Life Magazine said, “The Morgan interests took advantage… to precipitate the panic (of 1907), guiding it shrewdly as it progressed.” (13) G. Edward Griffen had this to say in an interview with David McAlvany. “Morse and Heinze had had a prior association with the third largest trust company in the country: the Knickerbocker Trust. That relationship had long been severed by mid-1907, but facts were not to get in the way of a good story. The past relationship led the general public to believe that the trust might also be in danger of insolvency. Though such was emphatically not the case, perception trumped reality and a run on the trust ensued. As the trust scrambled to meet its depositors’ demands, JP Morgan both directly and indirectly pulled out the supports and credit lines to the Knickerbocker Trust, which subsequently collapsed. The Trust was a competitor, and Morgan’s attitude was apparently that if he couldn’t control it, he must destroy it.” (14)
Furthermore, some claim that the absence of a Central Bank was to blame for the ‘Panic of 1907’. However, the opposite appears to be true. The United States Secretary of Treasury Leslie Shaw was sympathetic for a new central bank. There were attempts to create a new central bank, but those attempts had failed. The financial oligarchs of London, Rothschild’s Central Banks of Europe, and the old Kinged aristocrats have been opposing America’s system based on constitutional freedom to thrive and in happiness. This system has over the years been dismantled and drowned through great financially burden-full wars. Abraham Lincoln stated:
I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me
and the financial institutions in the rear.
Of the two the one in my rear is my greatest foe.” – Abraham Lincoln
In the two previous years before 1907, the United States Treasury began to act like a central bank which interfered with free market principals. The United States Treasury under Leslie Shaw relieved large banks in Chicago and New York of their obligation to redeem their notes for gold and cash. The consequences of this are enormous because it allowed the large banks to loan out more money than they actually had which as a result created inflation. It wasn’t free markets that caused the panic; it was the intervention of the Treasury that fueled it. (15)
What we can learn from the ‘Panic of 1907’ is that government intervention can create panics. We learned how the Hepburn Act caused railroad stocks to tank which damaged the economy. We learned how the Treasury acted like a central bank and relieved large banks of their obligation to redeem their notes for gold and cash which created inflation and distorted the market. We learned how JP Morgan acted shrewdly during the panic until he finally injected money into the system to calm the market. This history paints a very different picture of JP Morgan and central banking as compared to traditional history. Nearly 20 years later in 1929 the country was reminded how central banks do not protect the financial system as many defenders of central banking claim. The next great collapse would happen in 1929 on the watch of the Federal Reserve. This next collapse in 1929 was the beginning of the Great Depression.
Over the years, Treasury Secretary’s came directly from the banks, which were privately ran charters upon the banking system of the old United States currency. In recent times Kennedy Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon came from Dillon Read (now part of UBS Warburg). Nixon Treasury Secretaries David Kennedy and William Simon came from Continental Illinois Bank (now part of Bank of America) and Salomon Brothers (now part of Citigroup), respectively. Carter Treasury Secretary Michael Blumenthal came from Goldman Sachs, Reagan Treasury Secretary Donald Regan came from Merrill Lynch (now part of Bank of America), Bush Sr. Treasury Secretary Nicholas Brady came from Dillon Read (UBS Warburg) and both Clinton Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin and Bush Jr. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson came from Goldman Sachs. Obama Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner worked at Kissinger Associates and the New York Fed.
Timeline of The Banking Heist (now Global post 2007)
1723: Freemason’s ‘Anderson’s Constitutions of 1723′ lays out federalism, which is nearly identical to the US Constitution. During the American Revolution, Benjamin Franklin journeyed to France to seek financial help for American revolutionaries, dealing with Rothschild controlled Central banks, which were at war with the French Monarch.
1776: The ‘New World’ of America is established as a nation by a Constitutional “Bill of Rights” & a constitutional banking Treasury away from Europe’s failed system of commerce. The nation would print and coin their own currency without the debt per dollar printed by a central banking charter, connected to the Bank of London as commander of financial policy and power over the old democratic nation of patriotic forefathers who fought and died for a true beacon of Freedom & Prosperity. Benjamin Franklin, Master Mason of the Paris Lodge & Rosicrucian, becomes de facto Ambassador to France.
1784: Rothschild financing from Europe went to Alexander Hamilton who founded two New York banks, including the Bank of New York. It existed until its merger with the Mellon Financial Corporation on July 2, 2007. [Before the onset of the Bank Panic of August 2007 became the 2008 ‘Global Financial Crisis’, on December 4, 2006: The Bank of New York and Mellon Financial Corporation announced a merger, in which the name would be changed to The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation, or BNY Mellon, creating the world’s largest securities servicing provider and a top asset management firm globally. In October, 2011, the Justice Department and New York’s attorney general filed civil lawsuits against the Bank of New York, alleging foreign currency fraud.]
1789: Alexander Hamilton becomes the first Secretary of the Treasury under Master Masonic Brother, George Washington. Alexander Hamilton was also in totally opposition to the bill of rights and pro Federalist or imperial dictatorship. You can read this from his own works “The Federalist papers” The belief of the other founding fathers was in keeping the Republic of the United States of America as individual states to prevent a totalitarian government or monarchy from taking over. where as the federalist wanted a single federal government and no individual rights like freedom of speech. Hamilton was one of many Founding Fathers who were Freemasons. He had close relations with the Rothschild family which owns the Bank of England and leads the European Freemason movement. George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Jay, Ethan Allen, Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, John Brown and Roger Sherman were all Masons. Populist founding fathers led by John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and Thomas Paine- none of whom were Masons- wanted to completely severe ties with the British Crown, but were overruled by the Masonic faction led by Washington, Hamilton and Grand Master of the St. Andrews Lodge in Boston General Joseph Warren, who wanted to “defy Parliament but remain loyal to the Crown”. Over the years these structures were hijacked and used to continue other globalist orders.
“A country which expects to remain ignorant and free…expects that which has never been and that which will never be. There is scarcely a King in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh – get first all the people’s money, then all their lands and then make them and their children servants forever…banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies. Already they have raised up a money aristocracy.” Thomas Jefferson
1791: Despite Thomas Jefferson and Attorney General Edmund Randolph advising against a private central bank, the Rothschilds get, “control of a nation’s money,” through Alexander Hamilton, often labeled as a ‘Rothschild agent’ in George Washington’s cabinet. Washington, like Hamilton, wished to expand the role of the federal government, whereas they may have had different agendas with that system once it was completed. Hamilton’s in-laws, Philip Schuyler, was a General during the Revolutionary War, while the mother Catherine instituted a scorched earth policy to deprive the British of food. Alexanders father was the son of a Scottish Lord. Vice President Aaron Burr [founder of the Bank of Manhattan with Kuhn Loeb financing] shot and killed Hamilton in a duel July 12, 1804 in Weehawken NJ overlooking Manhattan after Hamilton sought to undermine Burr with rumors and alleged slander. Hamilton’s ancestors includes Scottish nobility & freemasonry knights of the Jerusalem Temple such as Sir Reginald de Crawford and Margaret de Loudoun. They were the common ancestors of both Alexander Hamilton and Sir William Wallace. Sir William who was a Scottish knight and one of the main leaders during the Wars of Scottish Independence.
“All communities divide themselves into the few and the many. The first are the rich and the well born, the others the mass of the people…The people are turbulent and changing; they seldom judge and determine right. Give therefore to the first class a distinct, permanent share of government. They will check the unsteadiness of the second.” -Alexander Hamilton
The new charter central bank in the USA is called the ‘First Bank of the United States’. This was established with a twenty-year charter. “70 percent of the central bank was owned by foreigners, and notes that Britain was the primary source of capital for the U.S during this era. Given that the U.S. relied on British capital, and British banks were dominated by the Rothschilds, it’s safe to say the family had a substantial stake in the First National Bank.”Source: San Jose State University
1811: The Charter for the Rothschilds Bank of the United States runs out and Congress votes against its renewal. Nathan Mayer Rothschild is not amused and is supposedly rumored to state, “Either the application for the renewal of the Charter is granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war.” However the United States stands firm and the Charter is not renewed, which causes Nathan Mayer Rothschild to issue another threat, “Teach those impudent Americans a lesson. Bring them back to Colonial status.” The often NOT talked about ‘War of 1812’ expands and the city of London sends the British forces to destroy the US capital. Source: Vers Demain Journal
British Soldiers captured the capital of the old America nation, burned the White House, Congress, National Library, Treasury, and the rest of the town to black soot and ashes. This was the end of the former United States of America, which ruled without a Central Bank.
1812: Backed by Rothschild money and Nathan Mayer Rothschilds orders, the British declare war on the United States. The Rothschild’s plan was to cause the United States to build up such a debt in fighting this war, that they would have to surrender to the Rothschilds and allow the charter for the Rothschild owned First Bank of the United States to be renewed. The Bureau of the Public Debt reports “Total public debt increased from $45.2 million on January 1, 1812, to $119.2 million as of September 30, 1815.” Moses Taylor, another alleged Rothschild agent, founded the National City Bank of New York in 1812. National City Bank would later become Citibank.
1816: The American Congress passes a bill which allows yet another Rothschild dominated central bank, which gives the Rothschilds control of the American money supply again. This is called the Second Bank of the United States and is given a 20-year charter. The British war against America ends with the deaths of thousands of British and American soldiers, but the Rothschilds get their bank. The Rothschilds would go on to perfect the strategy of lending to countries on each side of a conflict over the following century of chronic warfare. President James Madison & his European cabinet authorized the creation of the Second Bank of the United States. Foreign holdings of the Second Bank of the United States grew from just under 30,000 shares in 1820 to over 84,000 shares in 1832. James de Rothschild of France was rumored to be a principal investor in the new central bank. Source: The Second Bank of the United States, Vers Demain Journal
1823: The Monroe Doctrine is aimed at curbing European influence in “The America’s.” The policy states that the US will not interfere in the internal or colonial affairs of Europe, but would regard any further attempts at colonization in the America’s as an act of aggression, which would trigger US intervention. As Spanish colonies struggle for independence, Monroe seeks to prevent the establishment of puppet British or French monarchies in their place. Whether or not Spain keeps its colonies does not concern Monroe. His goal is to prevent the “balance-of-power” politics of Europe from spreading to the Americas, and thus threatening the young USA.
1825: The Royal Romanov Family of Russia, Tsar Alexander I dies amongst alleged poisoning.
1832: President Andrew Jackson (the 7th president of the United States from 1829 1837), runs the campaign for his second term in office under the slogan “Jackson and no bank!” This is in reference to take the control of the American money system to benefit the American people, not for the profiteering of the Rothschilds. In 1828 Andrew Jackson took a run at the US Presidency. Throughout his campaign he railed against the international bankers who controlled the BUS. Jackson ranted, “You are a den of vipers. I intend to expose you and by Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people understood the rank injustices of our money and banking system there would be a revolution before morning.” Jackson revokes the Central Banking charter.
“Should its influence be concentrated under the operation of such an Act as this, in the hands of a self-elected directory whose interests are identified with those of the foreign stockholders, will there not be cause to tremble for the independence of our country in war…controlling our currency, receiving our public monies and holding thousands of our citizens independence, it would be more formidable and dangerous than the naval and military power of the enemy. It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government for selfish purposes…to make the rich richer and more powerful. Many of our rich men have not been content with equal protection and equal benefits, but have besought us to make them richer by acts of Congress. I have done my duty to this country.” President Jackson
1833: President Andrew Jackson starts removing the government’s deposits from the Rothschild controlled, Second Bank of the United States and instead deposits them into banks directed by democratic bankers. This causes the Rothschilds to panic and so they do what they do best, contract the money supply causing a depression. President Jackson knows what they are up to and later states, “you are a den of thieves vipers, and I intend to rout you out, and by the eternal God, I will rout you out.” Acting as president of the United States Bank, Nicholas Biddle deliberately causes the recession of 1834 by tightening the money supply, leaving debtors short of new currency to repay old loans. Jackson turns up the heat. He threatens the bankers and wins the public to his side in “The Bank War”.
1835: On January 30, an assassin from London tries to shoot President Jackson, but miraculously both of the assassin’s pistols misfired. President Jackson would later claim that he knew the Rothschilds were responsible for the attempted assassination. The gunman was Richard Lawrence, who confessed that he was, “in touch with the powers in Europe.”
1836: Following his years of fighting against the Rothschilds and their central bank in America, President Jackson finally succeeds in throwing the Rothschilds central bank out of America, when the banks charter is not removed. [The second victory over the Rothschild] Under his watch the US national debt went to zero for the first and last time in our nation’s history. This angered the international bankers, whose primary income is derived from interest payments on debt. The next year 1837, a Banking Panic would ensue to destabilize America back into the European banking system. Failing to secure recharter, the Bank of the United States became a private corporation in 1836. In February 1836, the Bank became a private corporation under Pennsylvania commonwealth law. It suspended payment in 1839 and was liquidated in 1841.
1841: President John Tyler (The tenth president of the United States from 1841-1845) received death threats from Rothschild banking agents when he vetoed the act to renew the charter for the “Second” Bank of the United States. Tyler’s veto sparked a riot outside the White House, as incensed–and drunk–members of the Whig party (Royal head dress slang) bombarded the White House with stones, fired their guns in the air and burned Tyler in effigy – the most violent demonstration ever held outside the White House. In response the government formed the District of Columbia’s police force.
BUS President Nicholas Biddle cut off funding to the US government in 1842, plunging the US into a depression. Biddle was an agent for the Paris-based Jacob Rothschild. A private corporation with public duties, the ‘Second Bank of the United States’ handled all fiscal transactions for the US Government, and was accountable to Congress and the US Treasury. Little than twenty percent of its capital was owned by the federal government, with the rest of its control overseas in London and Rothschilds dominated European Central Banking systems.
A few years later the Civil War was unleashed, with London bankers backing the Union and French bankers backing the South. The Lehman family made a fortune smuggling arms to the south and cotton to the north. By 1861 the US was $100 million in debt. New President Abraham Lincoln snubbed the Euro-bankers again, issuing Lincoln Greenbacks to pay Union Army bills.
The Rothschild-controlled Times of London wrote:
“If that mischievous policy, which had its origins in the North American Republic, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. 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 on the globe.”
The Euro-banker-written Hazard Circular was exposed and circulated throughout the country by angry populists. It stated:
“The great debt that capitalists will see is made out of the war and must be used to control the valve of money. To accomplish this government bonds must be used as a banking basis. We are now awaiting Secretary of Treasury Salmon Chase to make that recommendation. It will not allow Greenbacks to circulate as money as we cannot control that. We control bonds and through them banking issues”.
1841: Benjamin Disraeli is a British-Jewish literary figure and aspiring politician. He will become two-time Prime Minister of Britain (1868, and again in 1874) and the dominant politician of 19th century Europe. Long before his rise to prominence, Disraeli publishes a political novel, Coningsby: The New Generation. Although fictional, Coningsby is based on contemporary British politics and the radical Young England movement. In the book, the to-be Prime Minister writes: “You never observe a great intellectual movement in Europe in which the Jews do not greatly participate… that mighty revolution of which so little is as yet known in England, is entirely developing under the auspices of Jews. …the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.” The “Jewish Conspiracy” to rule the world comes from groups of so-called Jewish financiers and anarchists who built the bloody Russian Bolshevik Revolutionary wars. The term Jewish is WRONG, as these people are not of the tribe of Judah in any sense, and believe torture and murder are okay in their brutal wars. These people are as extreme as so-called terrorists and rebels in the Middle East wars today. Make no mistake or get fooled into anti-semetic views. The Jewish faith is one built on great wisdom built under Solomon’s temple, where many of the hidden Mystery schools stole knowledge of and continue to suppress universal truths from public educational institutions of academia. These thieves are the sole groups which have spread into offshoot brotherhoods and political agencies, whom act as so-called lords and leaders upon our planet Earth, while acting our with murder and conspiracy against the many.
1848: Revolutionary upheaval, starts in Sicily in January of 1848. Soon afterwards, revolts “spontaneously” break out in 50 different states throughout Europe and South America. The rebelling Reds and other assorted groups demand “democracy.” Very similar the the ‘New Middle East Revolutions of 2011-to present, the pre-planned revolutions wreak havoc, causing many thousands of deaths and leading to political changes in some states. Within a year, the revolutions will have mostly been put down, but the existing political structure of Europe has been weakened by the slow poison of “liberalism”. Czarist Russia, Rothschild’s hated enemy, is unaffected from the Red tumult of 1848, but not for long. German-Jewish “philosopher” Karl Marx, whom is a direct grandchild of the Rothschild family, sets forth the goals of the Communists. Behind it’s empty promise of a “workers’ paradise” and “social justice”, the Communist Manifesto is just an intellectual mask to create political change over nations, in order to control Central Banks and thus the “worker system” of debt and slavery first established during the Roman ‘Third Servile War” during the reign of Spartacus and the revolt against slavery and the newly formed creation of the “job,” which governed the slaves with a small pay, which they would come to serve and become obedient to rather than direct slavery. The Manifesto specifically calls for heavy income taxes, a Central Bank with a monopoly on credit, abolition of private land ownership and inheritance, state control of communication, education, agriculture, transportation, manufacturing, and medicine. Marx refers to this totalitarian scheme as “the dictatorship of the proletariat”.
1850: During the 64 year reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901) Great Britain will experience a transformation from a Constitutional Monarchy to a totally Rothschild owned “democracy”. Three assassination attempts against Victoria during the turbulent 1840’s, further attempts on her in 1872 and 1882, and the many other attempts and murders of European Kings in the coming years, combine to send a clear and intimidating message to the British Monarchy: The Rothschild Family, not the “Royal Family”, rules the British Empire. The wave of attempted murders of European Monarchs continues with an attempt on Austria-Hungary’s Emperor Franz Joseph. The Emperor survives a stabbing attempt by Hungarian terrorist Janos Libenyi. Franz will still be Emperor when Austria-Hungary, Serbia and Russia are manipulated into World War I in 1914 by the assassination of his nephew.
1861-1865: Civil War breaks out in America. Contrary to popular history, the American Civil War is not really about slavery. Only 2% of southerners hold slaves, and 4 of the Northern states are actually slave holding states. Lincoln does indeed oppose slavery, but he mainly uses the issue as tool to maintain popular moral support for his main goal; saving the Union. The Rothschilds view the American US Civil War as a chance to “divide and conquer” America. If the South can break away from the Union, two rival nations can be played off against each other in a European style game of “balance-of-power.” Lincoln needs money to fund the war. He is extorted by the New York bankers, who want the government to sell high interest bonds to them. Lincoln thwarts the bankers by issuing interest-free currency directly from the Treasury. (Greenbacks). Britain & France threaten to intervene on the side of the South. In the fall of 1863, Czar Alexander II sends warships to dock in New York and San Francisco. Afraid of confrontation with both the US and Russia, the instigators of the Crimean War are forced to back off.
1865: In a statement to Congress President Abraham Lincoln states, “I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the financial institutions in the rear. Of the two the one in my rear is my greatest foe.” Later that year on April 14 President Lincoln is assassinated, less than two months before the end of the American Civil War. The 1863 National Banking Act reinstated a private US central bank and banking Treasury Chase’s war bonds were issued. Lincoln was re-elected the next year, vowing to repeal the act after he took his January 1865 oaths of office. Before he could act, he was assassinated at the Ford Theatre by John Wilkes Booth. Booth had major connections to the international bankers. His granddaughter wrote This One Mad Act, which details Booth’s contact with “mysterious Europeans” just before the Lincoln assassination. On the same night of Lincoln’s murder, Lewis Powell, an associate of Booth, attacks Secretary of State William Seward in his home. Vice President Andrew Johnson was also targeted for assassination that night, but the conspirator assigned to kill him (a German immigrant named George Atzerodt) loses his nerve at the last minute. Atzerodt, Powell and 5 other plotters will be executed.
Following the Lincoln hit, Booth was whisked away by members of a secret society known as Knights of the Golden Circle (KGC). KGC had close ties to the French Society of Seasons, which produced Karl Marx. KGC had fomented much of the tension that caused the Civil War and President Lincoln had specifically targeted the group. Booth was a KGC member and was connected through Confederate Secretary of State Judah Benjamin to the House of Rothschild. Benjamin fled to England after the Civil War.
Lincoln’s post war policy towards the defeated states was to have been one of reconciliation and rebuilding. With his sudden death however, a radical faction within the Republican Party, known as the Radical Republicans, are free to abuse and punish the southern states for their attempt at succession. More so than the Civil War itself, it is the vindictive oppression of the South during Reconstruction that will incite racial tensions, and leave lasting scars that will take nearly a century to heal.
1866: One year after the murder of President Lincoln, Lincoln’s ally, Czar Alexander II also comes under fire. Red Revolutionary Dimitry Karakozov draws his pistol and attempts to fire at Czar Alexander II. The attempt is thwarted when a quick-thinking bystander jostles his arm as he fires. “Your great industrial development has built up very large fortunes in few hands; and the conditions such fortunes produce must bring on a class conflict that cannot fail to make a test of the stability of your institutions. The men who have those fortunes know only the law of greed; they have no respect for the rights of others; and they will surely make an effort to use the strong arm of government to enslave the people. They will use the public franchises you grant in so liberal, so dangerous a way, to tax the people. These men of large fortunes will organize into groups to increase their power, and their aggressions will as surely drive the body of your people to the enactment of laws which may be most hurtful to the general prosperity. I see a great conflict must soon come in America between the few who have vast fortunes and the many reduced to a kind of industrial slavery.” -The Russian Tsar Alexander II
1870: The Franco-Prussian War is a conflict between the French Empire of Napoleon III (a nephew of Napoleon I), and the Germanic Kingdom of Prussia (1870-1871). Prussia is aided by a confederation of many smaller German states. The swift Prussian/German victory thwarts French ambitions in central Europe, and brings about the end of Napoleon III’s rule. After the war, the Rothschilds of France step in with a massive bail out of the nearly bankrupt French government. The new government (The 3rd Republic) is again a “democracy”, bought and paid for by the Rothschilds, and under their influence more so than it was under the semi-controllable Napoleon III. The Prussian/German victory over France brings about the unification of the German states under Kaiser (King) Wilhelm I of Prussia. The establishment of the German Empire ends the “balance of power” that had been created with the Congress of Vienna in 1815. Although Rothschild bankers will thrive in Germany, the political powers of Germany use this heist of their nation as a prelude to rid the nation of foreign influence.
1873: German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck negotiates an agreement between the monarchs of Austria-Hungary (Emperor Franz Joseph), Russia (Czar Alexander II), and Germany (Kaiser Wilhelm I). The alliance, known as The League of the Three Emperors, is a mutual defense against the growing Red movements, which have menaced Europe with violence since 1848. The military and financial power of these three Empires forms a Central-Southern-Eastern European power base that the Rothschilds and their British & French “hit men” cannot control.
1878: The Rothschild interests war against the Three Emperors continued with two assassination attempts against German emperor Wilhelm I. Just days before the important international conference is due to take place in Berlin, two assassination attempts are made against German Emperor, Kaiser Wilhelm I. On May 11, ’78, a Red named Emil Max Hodel fires shots at the Emperor and his daughter as they travel in their carriage. Hodel is captured and then executed in August. Three weeks later, another Red named Karl Nobiling fires a shot gun at the Emperor. The 82 year old Kaiser is wounded, but he survives. Nobiling then shoots himself, and dies 3 months later. Rothschild-owned British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli dominates the Berlin conference which was called into session to settle the Russi-Turkish war. The Ottoman Turks still control the “The Holy Land”, but Britain (and Rothschild influence) wish to ultimately take over Palestine. Just before the Congress opens, Disraeli concludes a secret deal with Turkey against Russia, whereby Britain is allowed to occupy the strategic island of Cyprus. This gives Disraeli an advantage during the Congress and leads him to issue threats of war if Russia does not comply with the requests of the Turks, who lost the war. Russia pulls out of the league due to its obvious takeover. The League of the Three Emperors is no more. The foundation of The Great War of 1914-1918 (World War I) was built at the Congress of Berlin, thanks to the dirty work of the Globalist Benjamin Disraeli.
Disraeli falsely accuses Russia of planning to conquer British-India via Afghanistan. To counter the non-existent Russian threat Disraeli proposes a British occupation of Afghanistan, a campaign that ends badly for the British. They withdraw in 1880. The “Great Game” in Afghanistan will be played again in 2001. While Britain’s Disraeli wages war against Russia on the diplomatic and military fronts, Rothschild’s insane Red Revolutionaries attack Romanov Russia internally.
1879: The Russian Tsar Alexander II, the celebrated Liberator of the serfs, meets with American banker Wharton Barker (who details this account later published in The Independent (LVI) of March 24, 1904). A few years before his assassination at the hands of Bolshevik financed anarchists, the Tsar confirms that, at the height of the American Civil War in 1862-1863, the Imperial Russian government had issued an ultimatum to Britain and France specifying that, if these powers should intervene on the side of the Confederate States of America, they would immediately find themselves at war with the formidable Russian Empire. The Tsar explains that the Russian battle fleets which arrived to great éclat in New York and San Francisco in September-October of 1863 were the visible tokens of this policy. He also situates the Russian approach to the Civil War in the context of other cases in which Russia had acted to preserve a European and world balance of power designed to check the inordinate geopolitical and economic ambitions of Great Britain.
“I am at a loss to understand how you Americans could have been so blind as to leave the Negro slave without tools to work out his salvation. In giving him personal liberty, you gave him an obligation to perform to the state which he must be unable to fulfill. Without property of any kind he cannot educate himself and his children. I believe the time must come when many will question the manner of American emancipation of the Negro slaves in 1863. The vote, in the hands of an ignorant man, without either property or self respect, will be used to the damage of the people at large; for the rich man, without honor or any kind of patriotism, will purchase it, and with it swamp the rights of a free people.
Your great industrial development has built up very large fortunes in few hands; and the conditions such fortunes produce must bring on a class conflict that cannot fail to make a test of the stability of your institutions. The men who have those fortunes know only the law of greed; they have no respect for the rights of others; and they will surely make an effort to use the strong arm of government to enslave the people. They will use the public franchises you grant in so liberal, so dangerous a way, to tax the people. These men of large fortunes will organize into groups to increase their power, and their aggressions will as surely drive the body of your people to the enactment of laws which may be most hurtful to the general prosperity. I see a great conflict must soon come in America between the few who have vast fortunes and the many reduced to a kind of industrial slavery.” -The Russian Tsar Alexander II
1881: President James A. Garfield (The 20th president of the United States who lasted only a hundred days) states two weeks before he is assassinated, “Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce and when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.”
After four previous attempts, Rothschild’s Red terrorists finally succeed in assassinating Czar Alexander II of Russia. With his son Alexander III, and grandson Nicholas watching, the Marxists hurl bombs at the Czar. Alexander’s legs are blown off and he bleeds to death. Due to the presence of so many Jews in the revolutionary movement, anti-Semitic violence sweeps across Russia after the Czar’s murder. These “pogroms” trigger a wave of Jewish immigration to the United States, England, and Germany. During the Anglo-Egyptian War, the British bomb Alexandria and invade Cairo. By the end of 1882, Rothschild’s Britain is the master of Egypt. During World War I, Egypt (which borders Palestine) will be a very useful staging post to launch attacks on the Ottoman Empire.
1886: American Reds organize massive May Day demonstrations in Chicago. On May 3rd, August Spies, a German born Anarchist Labor leader and self-styled “hero of the working man” addresses a crowd of striking union workers. The agitated mob then attacks a group of non-striking workers of the McCormick Harvesting Machine Company. To protect the non-strikers (“scabs”), and themselves, the police fire shots on the frenzied mob, killing two union thugs. Red agitators then spread the false rumor that police have gunned down the strikers in cold blood. The Reds print fliers calling for the workers to take up arms and attend a mass meeting in Chicago’s Haymarket Square. The following day, a line of police officers maintains order as Red speakers address the crowd. Suddenly, a pipe bomb is thrown at police lines. Reds begin firing pistols at the police and the police return fire. When the smoke clears, eight policemen lay dead and 60 others are wounded. Four of the Reds are also killed. Seven Red leaders (most of them immigrants from Europe) will be tried and executed for the massacre
1892: Alexander Berkman, a Russian-born Jewish anarchist from New York, arrives and attempts to murder Henry Clay Frick, Carnegie Steel’s Chairman. Berkman had plotted with his lover, Russian-born Jewish anarchist Emma Goldman, to carry out the murder. Frick is shot and stabbed, but survives. Berkman will serve 14 years in prison. “Red Emma” Goldman remains free and continues to openly call for violence and the murder of prominent Americans. The collapse of the Panama Canal Co. in 1889 due to corruption causes 800,000 French investors to lose their savings. Cornelius Herz and Jacques Reinach, played prominent roles in the political bribery aspect of the massive scandal. Their role in the massive fraud leads to a breakout of more anti-Semitism. The wrongly accused Jewish faith is put in the spotlight, whereas the banking cabal is not of Jewish faith.
1894: The popular French President Marie Francois Sadi Carnot is murdered. The president had a reputation for honesty and was untouched by the massive Panama Canal scandal of 1892. He also established a friendship with Russian Czar Alexander III. Carnot’s popularity, immunity to blackmail, and close friendship with the Rothschild hated Czar make him difficult for the Rothschilds to control. At this point in history, it appears that the Zionists are “removing some of their eggs” from the increasingly anti-Semitic French basket, and placing them in the increasingly Jewish influenced German basket. (as suggested by Jewish-French Captain Dreyfus passing secrets to Germany). The one constant that remains is Rothschild’s hatred for Russia. This may explain why Carnot was stabbed to death by Italian Anarchist Sante Geronimo Caserio.
1897: Antonio Canovas the Prime Minister of Spain is killed by the Reds. His is an advocate of a Constitutional Monarchy, and a supporter of the Catholic Church. While internal Red turmoil weakens Spain from within, external Globalist elements in the United States are agitating for war with Spain over control of its Cuban colony. Canovas will not live to see the disastrous Spanish-American War. He is shot dead by Italian anarchist Michele Angiolillo just months before the war with the US begins. The First Zionist Congress is held in Basel, Switzerland and is chaired by Theodore Herzl. Jewish delegates from across Europe agree that Palestine should one day be given to them. The problem for the Zionists is that Palestine is 90-95% Arab, and falls under the sovereignty of the Ottoman Turkish Empire. Unless the Turks voluntarily agree to give Palestine to the Jews of Europe, the Zionist dream cannot be realized. In 1901, the Zionists had offered to arrange a reduction of Turkey’s foreign debt (owed to Zionist bankers) in exchange for Palestine. The Sultan of Turkey bluntly refuses the offer. The British offer to give the Jews the African colony of Uganda. The Zionists refuse, insisting upon Palestine. Prior to his death in 1904, Herzl predicts that a world body will one day give Palestine to the Jews, and that he will go down in history as father of the Jewish State. For Herzl’s dream to come true, a European military power will have to be manipulated into taking Palestine away from the Ottomans by force.
1898: The USS Maine is strangely ordered to sail into Cuba’s Havana Harbor in January of 1898. Three weeks later, she conveniently explodes and swiftly sinks, killing 261 US sailors. The warmongers and Yellow Press are quick to blame the attack on a planted Spanish mine. They demand war against Spain. Spain denies any involvement and President McKinley remains calm. (Years later, even the US government will acknowledge that Spain was wrongly accused, stating that the explosion was “an accident.”) This event marks the beginning of America’s gradual conversion from a peaceful constitutional republic, to a violent global bully. The war also has the effect of launching Teddy Roosevelt into the national spotlight. As soon as war begins, TR resigns his position as Assistant Navy Secretary and joins a cavalry unit dubbed as the “The Rough Riders.” The Pulitzer and Hearst press wildly exaggerate TR’s “heroic charge on horseback” at the “decisive” Battle of San Juan Hill. While effectively running the US Navy, Teddy Roosevelt’s role in the false-flag destruction of the USS Maine positioned him for rapid career advancement, who receives Governorship of New York in 1899.
1900: In May of 1900, Red terrorist Gaetano Bresci leaves his home in Paterson, NJ and returns to Italy. He proceeds to stalk King Umberto, arriving in the town of Monza on July 26. The King, who had survived a Red assassination attempt in 1878, arrives on the evening of the 29th in an open air carriage and begins distributing medals to the Italian athletes gathered. After a short word of congratulations, Umberto descends the platform and gets back into his carriage. As he sits, Bresci bursts from the crowd brandishing a revolver and fires four times. The King dies seconds later, having been hit three times in the chest. Bresci is tackled by police agents and arrested.
1901: Republican President McKinley is a staunch advocate of “hard money” (Gold Standard) and limited constitutional government. McKinley is re-elected in 1900. Less than one year later, a foreign born Red terrorist named Leon Czolgosz shoots McKinley in Buffalo, NY. Czolgosz is a follower of the Anarchist Red, Emma Goldman. His death launches the Globalist puppet Teddy Roosevelt into office, completing TR’s amazing ascent from obscurity to the White House in just two years. The convenient murder of McKinley marks the beginning of “The Progressive Era” in which the Federal government will expand its power and foreign involvement.
Cartoon from 1900’s: TR and Wall Street moguls greet Kark Marx.
1904: Bankers such as America’s Jacob Schiff and the Rothschilds of Europe, provide massive amounts of easy financing for the Japanese military effort against Russia in the Russo-Japanese War. The bankers use the Japanese in order to weaken Russia so that the Czar can be overthrown by internal Communist subversives (also financed by Schiff & Rothschild). Schiff even arranges for Marxist reading materials to be given to 50,000 Russian Prisoners-of-War being held in Japan. Years later, many of these “re-educated” soldiers will turn against the Czar. In 1905 the Reds assassinate the Grand Duke of Russia, Sergei Alexandrovich, the brother of the late Tsar Alexander III. Their father Alexander II was also murdered by the Reds in 1881.
1905: The attempted Russian Revolution of 1905 is a wave of political uprisings, massive labor strikes, and terrorist acts against the government of Russia. The Reds (under orders from their Rothschild/Schiff masters) use the discontent surrounding the lost war with Japan to foment the revolution. Between 1905 and 1909, Red revolutionaries will kill 7,300 people and wound about 8,000. Nicholas makes a critical mistake by showing mercy to Red leaders such as Lenin and Trotsky. Instead of executing Marxist leaders, the Russians merely arrest or deport them. Lenin finds his way to Switzerland, and Trotsky ends up in New York after escaping from prison. The exiled Communists will one day return, with money from Rothschild Financiers, to terrorize Russia once again.
Russian professor Sergei Nilus publishes a full version of the anti-Semitic spurred Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, a controversial document discovered a few years earlier. The Protocols are said to be the minutes of a secret meeting of Jewish elites in which a master plan for world domination, to be completed over the next 100 years, is laid out in chilling detail. Although the authenticity of the document remains in question, world events of the coming decades (WWI, WWII with the creation of Israel, and the current WWIII forging a New Middle East) will match the Protocols so closely that the document becomes a worldwide sensation in the 1920’s and ’30’s, and is still widely read in the Arab world today. The Protocols tell of Jewish control of world banking, world media, Communism, liberalism, and political parties of every type. This anti-Semitic document proclaims all Jews are together in a conspiracy to take over the world, leading to the false Jewish conspiracy, whereas some political group may be following this agenda in modern times, none are of any faith of Judaism.
1906: Among the most prominent of the American Globalists is John D. Rockefeller Sr., who founded Standard Oil in 1870. Rockefeller’s fortune, adjusted for inflation, makes him the richest American in history (net worth of 700 billion in 2011 dollars!) His son, John Jr. will inherit the Rockefeller Empire and expand it into banking. John Jr. will also raise five sons who will take the family’s crime operation into the 21st century.
1907: The New York bankers have artificially inflated the stock market with easy loans. When lending is then tightened, the bubble bursts. Stocks crash nearly 50% and bank runs follow. The NY Times and the Wall Street bankers use the Panic of 1907 to make a case for establishing a European style Central Bank, as Karl Marx envisioned. Several years later, Senator Owen of Oklahoma will accuse the Banksters of conspiracy: “The Panic was brought about by a deliberate conspiracy for the enrichment of those who engineered it.” JP Morgan, John D Rockefeller, Jacob Schiff, Paul Warburg, and Lord Rothschild all declare that the lesson of The Panic is that the US needs a Central Bank..Nine months before the planned crisis, Jacob Schiff warned in a speech to the Chamber of Commerce that “unless we have a central bank with control of credit resources, this country is going to undergo the most severe and far reaching money panic in its history”.The following year, President Theodore Roosevelt, appoints a “bi-partisan” National Monetary Commission to study the causes of the Panic and to make suggestions. The Chairman of the Commission is Senator Nelson Aldrich (who’s daughter will one day be the mother of the 5 Rockefeller sons, David, John III, Nelson, Winthrop, & Lawrence).
1908: The Royal bloodbath in Europe continues as Red assassins murder King Carlos of Portugal along with his son and heir, Prince Luis Filipe. The assassins- linked the secret Carbonaria Society- also try to kill the Queen. Their hope was to provoke a revolution.
The Young Turks, (like Young England years earlier) are a group of Globalist supported “progressives” who work to undermine the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire and bring about “democracy”. In 1908, the Young Turks, supported by elements within the military, stage an upsring against the Sultan. Because the Young Turks have penetrated the army, the Sultan is forced to submit to concessions which weaken his power.
Master Mason Taft goes on to win the Presidency, but his policies of limited constitutional government turn back Roosevelt’s big government “progressivism.” The Taft-Roosevelt split is the beginning of a deep divide in the Republican Party that still exists to this day (though Constitutionalist Republicans are very few now).
Rothschild estate in Britain
1909: The soon-to-be British Prime Minister Lloyd George states, in 1909, that Lord Nathan Rothschild (son of Lionel) “is the most powerful man in Britain”. The French and Austrian branches of the Rothschild syndicate also hold similar power (though to a lesser degree) over those nations. Their agents also influence American and German politics and finance. Together with other banking dynasties (Schiff, Warburg, Baruch, Lazard et al) and also Anglo-American allies and agents (Rockefeller, JP Morgan et al.) the International House of Rothschild is the beating heart of the self-perpetuating World Order crime syndicate dynasty that carries on to this day, and you will notice this history and this family name is hardly if ever published in media or discussed ever.
1910: In November 1910, the same forces that deliberately created the Panic of 1907, came together to plot a “solution” to avoid such a crisis in the future. Senator Nelson Aldrich (maternal grandfather of Nelson & David Rockefeller) invites top bankers to attend a secret conference at the Jekyll Island hunting club in Georgia. Meeting under the ruse of a duck-shooting excursion, the conspirators plot to recreate a privately owned Central Bank for America.The “duck hunt” on Jekyll Island includes Senator Aldrich, Henry P. Davison (the front man for financier J.P. Morgan), National City Bank President Frank A. Vanderlip, and the “Father of the Fed”, the recent German Jewish immigrant and Rothschild agent, Paul Warburg. From the start, the group proceeds covertly. They avoid the use of last names as they meet quietly at Aldrich’s private railway car in Hoboken, New Jersey. Details of the secret Jekyll Island meeting will not emerge until many years later. It is now openly acknowledged that the Warburg-Rothschild Central Bank, which will be established in 1913 as the Federal Reserve System, was conceived at the Jekyll Island meeting.
The Schiff Family shared a home in Germany with the Rothschilds in the late 1700’s. Schiff’s money helped Japan defeat, and weaken Russia in 1905. In 1917, he will finance the mass murderous Trotsky/Lenin Red Revolution. Paul Warburg will soon become the “Father of the US Federal Reserve”. His son James will set up the United World Federalists in 1947 to promote world government. Max Warburg is the most powerful banker in Germany.
1911: While attending a performance at the Kiev Opera House, the popular Russian Prime Minister Pyotr Stolypin is shot by a Jewish double agent named Dmitri Bogrov (born Mordekhai Gershovich). Bogrov is a member of the Ohkrana, a Russian police force that has been infiltrated by Red spies. The murder of Russia’s Prime Minister is carried out in front the Csar and his two eldest daughters.
1913: The last and current bank in America, the Federal Reserve, is set up during the presidency of Woodrow Wilson. A Marxist style ‘Progressive Income Tax” will now turn American workers into human collateral for the bankers. The Revenue Act of 1913 adjusts American tariffs, and it also institutes an Income Tax of 1-7% only for the wealthiest of Americans. Naturally, empty promises are made that the initial rates, as well as the income ranges subject to tax, will not be changed.
A 1912 attempt to set up a Central Bank (The Aldrich Bill) had failed for lack of support. The Bansters make some cosmetic changes and try again in 1913. With many anti-Bank Congressmen having already left for Christmas Break, and others eager to get of Washington DC for the Holidays, the Federal Reserve Act establishing the cleverly misnamed “Federal Reserve System” is passed and Wilson quickly signs it. The conspiratorial 1910 Jekyll Island meeting resurrects the latest version of the same privately owned monster that Andrew Jackson had so proudly killed in 1832. The new Central Bank now has the power to create money out of thin air, and then lend it to the nation’s banks and US Treasury at interest. To this day, the “Fed” plagues America with constant inflation, housing and stock bubbles, artificial booms, recessions, and depressions. Its money-creating tricks enable Big Government to borrow endlessly from the Fed. The member banks which own the Fed’s stock are controlled by the Rothschild-Warburg-Schiff-Rockefeller crime syndicate. To conceal their dominance of the Fed, Paul Warburg, (the Fed’s true founder) is not named Fed Chairman. Instead, he is appointed Chairman of the New York Branch of the Fed (the most important seat). Every Fed Chairman since 1970 has been Jewish, leading to continuing Jewish Conspiracy ideologies. (Burns, Volcker, Greenspan, Bernanke). These men are of no faith to God or Judaism to say the least.
Minnesota Congressman Charles Lindbergh Sr. (father of the famous aviator) denounces the Federal Reserve Act, both before and after its passage. Prior to Wilson’s signature, Lindbergh warns:.”This is the Aldrich Bill in disguise. …This Act establishes the most gigantic trust on Earth. When the President signs this bill, the invisible government by the Monetary Power will be legalized. The people may not know it immediately but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed. .. The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this bill.”After the Fed is up and running, Lindbergh adds:.”The financial system has been turned over to the Federal Reserve Board….The system is private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people’s money.”
1914: Young Bosnia , possibly working with The Young Turks, plots the murder of an Austrian Royal. Serbia is an independent, Orthodox Christian nation under the protection of Czarist Russia. Because of Disraeli’s past schemes, many Serbians also live under Austro-Hungarian rule (in Bosnia) instead of under the Sebian or Russian rule. This arangement has always caused friction, both within A-H, and also between Russia and A-H. Archduke Franz Ferdinand is heir to the Habsburg Family throne of Austria-Hungary. While traveling through the Bosnian city of Sarajevo with his wife Sophie, a bomb is thrown at the Archduke’s open car. He deflects the bomb with his arm and it explodes behind him. In just a few weeks time, Europe is now aflame in war as the Globalist press in France, England, Austria, and Germany whip up a mutually destructive nationalist fervor among the European nations.
1917: The Rothschilds order the execution by the Bolsheviks they control, of Tsar Nichols II and his entire family in Russia even though he had abdicated on March 2. This is both to get control of the country and an act of revenge for Alexander I [for] blocking their world government plan in 1815 at the Congress of Vienna, and Tsar Alexander II siding with President Abraham Lincoln in 1864.
“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. The apex of the system was the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the worlds’ central banks which were themselves private corporations. The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury of all other economic groups.” Tragedy and Hope: A History of The World in Our Time (Macmillan Company, 1966,) Professor Carroll Quigley of Georgetown University
