DYNASTIC BANKING FAMILIES

These eight private banks own the most shares of the Federal Reserve. Essentially, they own the FED.

1. Rothschild Bank of London
2. Warburg Bank of Hamburg
3. Rothschild Bank of Berlin
4. Lehman Brothers of New York
5. Lazard Brothers of Paris
6. Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York
7. Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy
8. Goldman, Sachs of New York
9. Warburg Bank of Amsterdam
10. Chase Manhattan Bank of New York

 

"During the past two centuries when the peoples of the world were gradually winning their political freedom from the dynastic monarchies, the major banking families of Europe and America were actually reversing the trend by setting up new dynasties of political control through the formation of international financial combines. These banking dynasties had learned that all governments must have sources of revenue from which to borrow in times of emergency. They had also learned that by providing such funds from their own private resources, they could make both kings and democratic leaders tremendously subservient to their will.

Carroll Quigley in his book "Tragedy and Hope"

 

"The merchant bankers of London had already at hand in 1810-1850 the Stock Exchange, the Bank of England, and the London money market when the needs of advancing industrialism called all of these into the industrial world which they had hitherto ignored. In time they brought into their financial network the provincial banking centers, organized as commercial banks and savings banks, as well as insurance companies, to form all of these into a single financial system on an international scale which manipulated the quantity and flow of money so that they were able to influence, if not control, governments on one side and industries on the other. The men who did this, looking backward toward the period of dynastic monarchy in which they had their own roots, aspired to establish dynasties of international bankers and were at least as successful at this as were many of the dynastic political rulers. The greatest of these dynasties, of course, were the descendants of Meyer Amschel Rothschild (1743-1812) of Frankfort, whose male descendants, for at least two generations, generally married first cousins or even nieces. Rothschild's five sons, established at branches in Vienna, London, Naples, and Paris, as well as Frankfort, cooperated together in ways which other international banking dynasties copied but rarely excelled."

Carroll Quigley in his book "Tragedy and Hope"

 

"Hundreds of years ago, bankers began to specialize, with the richer and more influential ones associated increasingly with foreign trade and foreign-exchange transactions. Since these were richer and more cosmopolitan and increasingly concerned with questions of political significance, such as stability and debasement of currencies, war and peace, dynastic marriages, and worldwide trading monopolies, they became the financiers and financial advisers of governments.
Moreover, since their relationships with governments were always in monetary terms and not real terms, and since they were always obsessed with the stability of monetary exchanges between one country's money and another, they used their power and influence to do two things: (1) to get all money and debts expressed in terms of a strictly limited commodity - ultimately gold; and (2) to get all monetary matters out of the control of governments and political authority, on the ground that they would be handled better by private banking interests."

Carroll Quigley in his book "Tragedy and Hope"

 

"By the end of the 1890's [J.P.] Morgan and [John D.] Rockefeller had become the giants of an increasingly powerful Money Trust controlling American industry and government policy. There was little room for the actual practice of democracy in their world. Power was the commodity of their trade. It was the creation of an American aristocracy of blood and money, every bit as elite and exclusive as the titled nobility of Britain, Germany or France - despite the Constitutional ban on titled nobility in America. It was an oligarchy, a plutocracy in every sense of the word - rule by the wealthiest in their self-interest.
Some 60 families - names like Rockefeller, Morgan, Dodge, Mellon, Pratt, Harkness, Whitney, Duke, Harriman, Carnegie, Vanderbilt, DuPont, Guggenheim, Astor, Lehman, Warburg, Taft, Huntington, Baruch and Rosenwald formed a close network of plutocratic wealth that manipulated, bribed, and bullied its way to control the destiny of the United States. At the dawn of the 20th Century, some sixty ultra-rich families, through dynastic intermarriage and corporate, interconnected shareholdings, had gained control of American industry and banking institutions."

F. William Engdahl in his book "Gods of Money"

 

"We are ruled, though it may be difficult to imagine, by a small dynastic power structure, largely consisting of powerful banking families, such as the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, and others. The emerged in controlling the financial system, extended their influence over the political system, the educational system, and, through the major foundations, have become the dominant social powers of our world, creating think tanks and other institutions which shape and change the course of society and modern human history. Among these central institutions which extend the domination of these elites and their social group are the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, and the Trilateral Commission."

Andrew Gavin Marshall

 

"J. W. McCallister, oil industry insider with House of Saud connections, wrote in The Grim Reaper that information he acquired from Saudi bankers cited 80% ownership of the New York Federal Reserve Bank - by far the most powerful Fed branch - by just eight families, only four of which reside in the US. They are the Goldman Sachs, Rockefellers, Lehmans and Kuhn Loebs of New York; the Rothschild's of Paris and London; the Lazards of Paris; and the Israel Moses Seifs of Rome."

Dean Henderson in his book "Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf"

 

GLOBAL DYNASTIC ELITE

"At the center of oligarchy is the idea that certain families are born to rule as an arbitrary elite, while the vast majority of any given population is condemned to oppression, serfdom, or slavery. Oligarchs identify wealth purely in money terms, and practice usury, monetarism, and looting.
... The essence of oligarchism is summed up in the idea of the empire, in which an elite identifying itself as a master race rules over a degraded mass of slaves or other oppressed victims. If oligarchical methods are allowed to dominate human affairs, they always create a breakdown crisis of civilization, with economic depression, war, famine, plague, and pestilence. A pillar of the oligarchical system is the family fortune. The continuity of the family fortune which earns money through usury and looting is often more important than the biological continuity across generations of the family that owns the fortune."
"The Venetian Black Nobility and the Concept of Oligarchy" an article by Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley & James Higham
 
"There is a vast network of private financial interests, controlled by the leading aristocratic and royal families of Europe.
... A secret cross-linked vast holding of private financial interests is tied to the old aristocratic oligarchy of Western Europe."

William Engdahl , Executive Intelligence Review, April 1997

 

"European dynastic families constitute a financial oligarchy; they are the power behind the Windsor throne [Britain]. They view themselves as the heirs to the Venetian oligarchy [Black Nobility] ."

historian Jeffrey Steinberg, henrymakow.com

 

"The Black Nobility are the oligarchic families of Venice and Genoa, who in the 12th century held privileged trading rights (monopolies). The first of three crusades, from 1063 to 1123, established the power of the Venetian Black Nobility and solidified the power of the wealthy ruling class. In 1204 the oligarchic families parceled out feudal enclaves to their members, and from this date, they built up power until government became a closed corporation of the leading Black Nobility families.
The European Black Nobility is responsible for the insidious entanglements of numerous secret societies and organizations, which are backed with high finance and powerful political connections. Such organizations include: Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), United Nations, International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, Bank of International Settlements (BIS), Club of Rome, Chatham House, and many others. Present day European Black Nobility families are connected with the House of Guelph, one of the original Black Nobility families of Venice from which the House of Windsor and thus the present Queen of the United Kingdom Elizabeth II descends."

Dr. John Coleman in his book "The Committee of 300: A Brief History of World Power"

 

"During the Middle Ages, European power centers coalesced into two camps: the Ghibellines and the Guelphs. The Pope then allied himself with the Guelphs against the Ghibellines resulting in their victory. All of modern history stems directly from the struggle between these two powers. The Guelphs were also called the Black Guelphs and Black Nobility. Every subsequent coup d'état, revolution and war has centered in the battle of the Guelphs to hold and enhance their power, which is now the World Order. The power of the Guelphs grew through their control of banking and international trade."

Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley & James Higham in their book "The Venetian Black Nobility and the Concept of Oligarchy"

 

HOUSE OF WINDSOR

"The House of Guelph, one of the Black Nobility families of Venice, is the oldest dynasty in Europe being some 800 years old. It survives to this day as the British House of WIndsor. Other important present-day European "Black Nobility" families include: House of Bernadotte (Sweden), House of Bourbon (France), House of Braganza (Portugal), House of Grimaldi (Monaco), House of Habsburg (Austria,) House of Hanover (Germany), House of Hohenzollern (Germany), House of Karadjordjevic (Yugoslavia), House of Liechtenstein (Liechtenstein), House of Nassau (Luxembourg), House of Oldenburg (Denmark), House of Orange (Netherlands), House of Savoy (Italy,) House of Wettin (Belgium), House of Wittelsbach (Germany), House of Württemberg (Germany), House of Zogu (Albania)."

Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley & James Higham in an article "The Venetian Black Nobility and the Concept of Oligarchy"

 

"The forerunners of the Freemasons - the Knights Templar - founded the concept of banking and created a "bond market" as a means to control European nobles through war debts... The Crusader Knights Templar looted a huge store of gold and numerous sacred artifacts from beneath the Solomon Temple. (King Solomon was the son of King David)... The claimed lineage to the House of David is what the Illuminati use to justify their global control."

Dean Henderson in his book "Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf"

 

"The bulwark of the British financial oligarchy lies in its ageless and self-perpetuating nature, its long-range planning and prescience, its facility to outwait and break the patience of its opponents. The transient and temporal statesmen of Europe and particularly of Britain itself, who have attempted to curb this monstrosity have all been defeated by their limited tenure of confidence. Obligated to show action and results in a too short span of years, they have been outwitted and outwaited, deluged with irritants and difficulties; eventually obliged to temporize and retreat. There are few who have opposed them in Britain and America, without coming to a disgraceful end, but many, who served them well, have also profited well."

E.C. Knuth in his book "The Empire of The City", 1946

 

"Queen Elizabeth II, head of state of the United Kingdom and of 31 other states and territories, is the legal owner of about 6,600 million acres of land, one sixth of the earth's non-ocean surface. She is the only person on earth who owns whole countries. The value of her land holding is approximately $28,000,000,000,000. This makes her the richest individual on earth."

Kevin Cahill from his book "Who Owns The World"

 

"The British royal family rules the world, but they do not rule it alone. There are at least three other actors: central banks, the legacy of Cecil Rhodes, and the immense financial power of the biggest international banking family, the Rothschilds."

"Who Runs The World And Controls The Value Of Assets?" an article by Joan Veon

 

"Club of the Isles is a European cartel - centered within the City of London and headed by the House of Windsor - which controls every aspect of the global economy -- banks, insurance and pharmaceutical companies, raw materials, transportation, factories, major retail groups, the stock and commodities markets, politicians and governments, media, intelligence agencies, drugs and organized crime."

"The Windsors' Global Food Cartel: Instrument for Starvation" an article by Executive Intelligence Review, 1995

 

VATICAN

"The Vatican has large investments with the Rothschilds of Britain, France and America, with the Hambros Bank, with the Credit Suisse in London and Zurich. In the United States it has large investments with the Morgan Bank, the Chase-Manhattan Bank, the First National Bank of New York, the Bankers Trust Company, and others. The Vatican has billions of shares in the most powerful international corporations such as Gulf Oil, Shell, General Motors, Bethlehem Steel, General Electric, International Business Machines, T.W.A., etc. At a conservative estimate, these amount to more than 500 million dollars in the U.S.A. alone.
... In a statement published in connection with a bond prospectus, the Boston archdiocese listed its assets at Six Hundred and Thirty-five Million ($635,891,004), which is 9.9 times its liabilities. This leaves a net worth of Five Hundred and Seventy-one million dollars ($571,704,953). It is not difficult to discover the truly astonishing wealth of the church, once we add the riches of the twenty-eight archdioceses and 122 dioceses of the U.S.A., some of which are even wealthier than that of Boston.
... Some idea of the real estate and other forms of wealth controlled by the Catholic church may be gathered by the remark of a member of the New York Catholic Conference, namely 'that his church probably ranks second only to the United States Government in total annual purchase.' Another statement, made by a nationally syndicated Catholic priest, perhaps is even more telling. 'The Catholic church,' he said, 'must be the biggest corporation in the United States. We have a branch office in every neighborhood. Our assets and real estate holdings must exceed those of Standard Oil, A.T.&T., and U.S. Steel combined. And our roster of dues-paying members must be second only to the tax rolls of the United States Government.
... The Catholic church, once all her assets have been put together, is the most formidable stockbroker in the world. The Vatican, independently of each successive pope, has been increasingly orientated towards the U.S. The Wall Street Journal said that the Vatican's financial deals in the U.S. alone were so big that very often it sold or bought gold in lots of a million or more dollars at one time.
... The Vatican's treasure of solid gold has been estimated by the United Nations World Magazine to amount to several billion dollars. A large bulk of this is stored in gold ingots with the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank, while banks in England and Switzerland hold the rest. But this is just a small portion of the wealth of the Vatican, which in the U.S. alone, is greater than that of the five wealthiest giant corporations of the country. When to that is added all the real estate, property, stocks and shares abroad, then the staggering accumulation of the wealth of the Catholic church becomes so formidable as to defy any rational assessment.
... The Catholic church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence. She is a greater possessor of material riches than any other single institution, corporation, bank, giant trust, government or state of the whole globe. The pope, as the visible ruler of this immense amassment of wealth, is consequently the richest individual of the twentieth century. No one can realistically assess how much he is worth in terms of billions of dollars.
...The Vatican has billions of shares in the most powerful international corporations... The Vatican has large investments with the Rothschilds of Britain, France and America, with the Hambros Bank, with the Credit Suisse in London and Zurich. In the United States it has large investments with the Morgan Bank, the Chase-Manhattan Bank, the First National Bank of New York, the Bankers Trust Company, and others."

from the book "The Vatican Billions" by Avro Manhattan, 1983

 

"During a war you will never see the Vatican, City of London or Switzerland get attacked. On the grand chessboard these are considered neutral ground because it is where all the money flows. Without money to fund war, there is no war."

from an article "Bank of England, City of London and The Queen" http://wideshut.co.uk

 

"Early in the 19th century the Pope came to the Rothschilds to borrow money... The Rothschilds over time were entrusted with the bulk of the Vatican's wealth.
... The Rothschilds took over all the financial operations of the worldwide Catholic Church in 1823. Today the large banking and financial business of the Catholic Church is an extensive system inte
rlocked with the Rothschilds and the rest of the International Banking system."

Fritz Springmeier, 2003

 

"At the present time (1905) the Rothschilds are guardians of the papal treasure."

The Jewish Encylopedia, 1905

 

"In 1982 Reagan met with Pope John Paul II... At the meeting the two agreed to launch a clandestine program to tear Eastern Europe away from the Soviets. Poland, the Pope's country of origin, would be the key. Catholic priests, the AFL-CIO, the National Endowment for Democracy, the Vatican Bank and CIA would all be deployed."

Dean Henderson in his book "Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf"

 

ECONOMIC SHOCK THERAPY

"The neoliberal global system never was open in practice. America never imposed on itself the kind of shock therapy that President Clinton's Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin promoted in Russia and the rest of the former Soviet bloc, from the Baltic countries in the northwest to Central Asia in the southeast. Just the opposite! Despite the fact that America's own balance of trade and payments is soaring, consumer prices are rising and financial and property markets are plunging, there are no calls among its power elite to let the system self-correct. The Treasury is subsidizing America's financial markets so as to save its financial class and support its asset prices. Interest rates are being lowered to re-inflate asset prices, not raised to stabilize the dollar or slow domestic price inflation."

Michael Hudson and Jeffrey Sommers

 

"The entire thirty-year history of he Chicago School experiment has been one of mass corruption and corporatist collusion between security states and large corporations, from Chile's piranhas, to Argentina's crony privatizations, to Russia's oligarchs, to Enron's energy shell game, to Iraq's "free fraud zone." The point of shock therapy is to open up a window for enormous profits to be made very quickly-not despite the lawlessness but precisely because of it."

Naomi Klein in her book "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism"

 

"The Latin American debt crisis ... erupted as a direct result of [US Federal Reserve Chairman Paul] Volcker's interest rate shock therapy. In August 1982 Mexico announced it could no longer pay the interest on its staggering dollar debt. Mexico, along with most of the Third World from Argentina to Brazil, from Nigeria to Congo, from Poland to Yugoslavia, had fallen for the New York banks' debt trap."

F. William Engdahl in his book "Gods of Money"

 

"Along with former Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker; Citibank vice-chairman H. Anno Ruding, who was formerly with the IMF; and Harvard Professor Jeffrey Sachs, George Soros had a big hand in creating the Polish model of "shock therapy." [Sachs drew Soros's attention through his work in implementing IMF-style "shock therapy" in Bolivia.]"

Executive Intelligence Review Special Report, April 1997

 

"The Communist state was simply replaced with a corporatist one: the beneficiaries of the boom were confined to a small club of Russians, many of them former Communist Party apparatchiks, and a handful of Western mutual fund managers who made dizzying returns investing in newly privatized Russian companies. A clique of nouveaux billionaires, many of whom were to become part of the group universally known as "the oligarchs" for their imperial levels of wealth and power, teamed up with Yeltsin's Chicago Boys and stripped the country of nearly everything of value, moving the enormous profits offshore at a rate of $2 billion a month. Before shock therapy, Russia! had no millionaires; by 2003, the number of Russian billionaires had risen to seventeen, according to the Forbes list.
... By 1998, more than 80 percent of Russian farms had gone bankrupt, and roughly seventy thousand state factories had closed, creating an epidemic of unemployment. In 1989, before shock therapy, 2 million people in the Russian Federation were living in poverty, on less than $4 a day. By the time the shock therapists had administered their "bitter medicine" in the mid-nineties, 74 million Russians were living below the poverty line, according to the World Bank. That means that Russia's "economic reforms" can claim credit for the impoverishment of 72 million people in only eight years. By 1996, 25 percent of Russians - almost 37 million people-lived in poverty described as "desperate."
Russia's population is ... in dramatic decline-the country is losing roughly 700,000 people a year. Between 1992, the first full year of shock therapy, and 2006, Russia's population shrank by 6.6 million."

Naomi Klein in her book "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism"

 

"The aim of Washington's IMF "market reforms" in the former Soviet Union was brutally simple: destroy the economic ties that bound Moscow to each part of the Soviet Union .... IMF shock therapy was intended to create weak, unstable economies on the periphery of Russia, dependent on Western capital and on dollar inflows for their survival -- a form of neocolonialism .... The Russians were to get the standard Third World treatment... IMF conditionalities and a plunge into poverty for the population. A tiny elite were allowed to become fabulously rich in dollar terms, and manipulable by Wall Street bankers and investors."

William Engdahl in his book" A Century of War"

 

"The country has been intentionally plundered and will eventually wind up in the hands of its creditors... After a nation is successfully driven to destitution, public policy decisions are made by creditors and not by representatives of the people .... The catastrophe that middle class Americans face is what these elites breezily refer to as "shock therapy"; a sudden jolt, followed by fundamental changes to the system. In the near future we can expect tax reform, fiscal discipline, deregulation, free capital flows, lowered tariffs, reduced public services, and privatization."

Mike Whitney, 2005

 

"For over 40 years, Washington had quietly supported Yugoslavia, and the Tito model of mixed socialism, as a buffer against the Soviet Union. As Moscow's empire began to fall apart, Washington had no more use for a buffer - especially a nationalist buffer which was economically successful, one that might convince neighboring states in eastern Europe that a middle way other than IMF shock therapy was possible. The Yugoslav model had to be dismantled, for this reason alone, in the eyes of top Washington strategists. The fact that Yugoslavia also lay on a critical path to the potential oil riches of central Asia merely added to the argument."

William Engdahl in his book" A Century of War"

 

ECONOMICS

"Economic science is an ideological construct which serves to camouflage and justify the New World Order. A set of dogmatic postulates serves to uphold free market capitalism by denying the existence of social inequality and the profit-driven nature of the system is denied. The role of powerful economic actors and how these actors are able to influence the workings of financial and commodity markets is not a matter of concern for the discipline's theoreticians. The powers of market manipulation which serve to appropriate vast amounts of money wealth are rarely addressed."

Andrew Gavin Marshall, Global Research

 

"The theories offered by economists rationalize the self-interest of big business and the wealthy. Such theories claim to benefit society and the public's well-being. But they do just the opposite: they make the great mass of people poorer while making the rich fabulously richer."

economist Ravi Batra

 

"What [the wealthy elite] are trying to do is to roll back the Enlightenment, roll back the moral philosophy and social values of classical political economy and its culmination in Progressive Era legislation, as well as the New Deal institutions. They're not trying to make the economy more equal, and they're not trying to share power. Their greed is (as Aristotle noted) infinite. So what you find to be a violation of traditional values is a re-assertion of pre-industrial, feudal values. The economy is being set back on the road to debt peonage. The Road to Serfdom is not government sponsorship of economic progress and rising living standards; it's the dismantling of government, the dissolution of regulatory agencies, to create a new feudal-type elite."

Michael Hudson, 2008

 

"Today CEOs and wealthy businessmen are the ruling elite in the Western world, especially the United States. Their donations finance elections and even education, which they are constantly saying has to adapt itself to the needs of the market (that is, be molded to inculcate their views. It should come as no surprise therefore that the theories offered by economists rationalize the self-interest of big business and the wealthy. Overtly, of course, such theories claim to benefit society and the public's well-being. But covertly, they do just the opposite: they make the great mass of people poorer while making the rich fabulously richer."

Ravi Batra in his book "The New Golden Age", 2007

 

"The advanced capitalist economies of North America and Europe are desperately trying to maintain their hegemony and economic survival by means of austerity programs which shift the burden of the depression from the wealthy financiers and speculators who created it to the poor and working class who must pay for it... The Western imperial powers seek to destroy the social safety net and drive their populations into further destitution and desperation. This is the crisis of advanced, post-industrial capitalism - an economic system which must expand the divide between rich and poor, create extremes of wealth and poverty and generally perpetuate itself on the misery and poverty of the lower classes."

Eric Draitser, Global Research, 2013

 

"Economists are schooled in bank-funded university economics departments where they are thoroughly indoctrinated in monetary theories. The Money Power ensures that economists are methodically trained in economic language and thought and are programmed to spout the official, approved version.
... Economists show no inclination whatsoever to challenge the fundamentals of a centuries old fraudulent practice of private, debt-based, interest-bearing money creation.

Gabriel Donohoe

 

"Why don't elite economists ever want to reduce payroll, gasoline and sales taxes? Why do they always want to cut income and corporate taxes? Why do some Ivy League experts always want to slash tax rates on capital gains and dividends? Why is their theory silent about the beneficial effects of cuts for low-income people? The reason is simple: these other rate cuts won't offer much benefit to the rich, so well-paid economists working for the affluent see no investment and growth benefits from such reductions. If the experts urged consideration of tax cuts for the middle and lower classes, their colleges would likely starve for donations from the CEOs."

Ravi Batra in his book "The New Golden Age", 2007

 

"83 percent of all U.S. stocks are in the hands of 1 percent of the people.
66% of the income growth between 2001 and 2007 went to the top 1% of all Americans.

"The big question is why hasn't government and the Fed tried to solve the economic situation [in the United States]? The answer is they have no intention of doing so, because they want the public on their knees economically and financially so they can impose World Government."

Bob Chapman, 2011

 

ENEMIES

"The need for major states as enemies stems partly from the fact that only the perceived presence of enemy states can justify military spending at the level which the industries concerned have come to demand."

David Edwards - Burning All Illusions

 

"There was no comer of the known world where some interest was not alleged to be in danger or under actual attack If the interests were not Roman, they were those of Rome's allies; and if Rome had no allies, then allies would be invented When it was utterly impossible to contrive such an interest-why, then it was the national honor that had been insulted. The fight was a/ways invested with an aura of legality. Rome was always being attacked by evil-minded neighbors, always fighting for a breathing space. The whole world was pervaded by a host of enemies, and it was manifestly Rome's duty to guard against their indubitably aggressive designs."

Joseph Schumpeter, Austrian economist, 1979 essay "The Sociology of Imperialisms"

 

"However unlikely some of the possible alternate enemies may seem, we must emphasize that one must be found, of credible quality and magnitude, if a transition to peace is ever to come about without social disintegration.... It is more probable, in our judgment, that such a threat will have to be invented, rather than developed from unknown conditions."

Report from Iron Mountain, 1967

 

"Enemies are necessary for the wheels of the U.S. military machine to turn."

former CIA official John Stockwell

 

"Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear - kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor - with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant funds demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real."

General Douglas MacArthur, 1957, as quoted in "American Caesar" by William Manchester, 1978

 

"Were the Soviet Union to sink tomorrow under the waters of the ocean, the American military-industrial establishment would have to go on, substantially unchanged, until some other adversary could be invented. Anything else would be an unacceptable shock to the American economy."

George Kennan, State Department Cold War strategist

 

"However unlikely some of the possible alternate enemies ... may seem, we must emphasize that one must be found, of credible quality and magnitude, if a transition to peace is ever to come about without social disintegration... It is more probable, in our judgment, that such a threat will have to be invented, rather than developed from unknown conditions."

Report from Iron Mountain, 1967

 

"Now that the cold war is becoming a memory, America's foreign policy establishment has begun searching for new enemies. Possible new villains include "instability" in Europe, the "vanishing" ozone layer, nuclear proliferation, and narco-terrorism. Topping the list of potential new global bogeymen, however, are the Yellow Peril, the alleged threat to American economic security emanating from East Asia, and the so-called Green Peril (green is the color of Islam)."

Leon T. Hadar, Cato Institute, in the 1990s

 

"Among Latin American elites, a peasant asking for a higher wage or a priest helping organize a peasant cooperative is a communist. And someone going so far as to suggest land reform or a more equitable tax system is a communist fanatic. There is no word or act suggesting the desirability of elite generosity toward the poor, or the need for education, organization or material advance for the majority, that has not been branded communistic in Latin America in recent decades. ... Since communism is the enemy and peasants trying to improve themselves, priests with the slightest humanistic proclivity, and naturally anyone seriously challenging the status quo, are communists, they are also, by definition, enemies."

Edward S. Herman

 

"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed ... by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary... The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false face for the urge to rule it."

H L Mencken, In Defense of Women, Dover Publications, 1918

 

"The ruling elites know who their enemies are, and their enemies are the people, the people at home and the people abroad. Their enemies are anybody who wants more social justice, anybody who wants to use the surplus value of society for social needs rather than for individual class greed, that's their enemy."

Michael Parenti

 

"America cherishes her enemies. Without enemies, she is a nation without purpose and direction. The various components of the National Security State need enemies to justify their swollen budgets, to aggrandize their work, to protect their jobs, to give themselves a mission in the aftermath of the Soviet Union."

William Blum in his book "Rogue State"

 

"How does continuous war act to keep the Lows "stupefied by poverty" and thereby assure the maintenance of the social structure? The goal of the wars is to enable the economy to be kept going for the benefit of the High, its military, and its bureaucracy and control personnel (the Thought Police, etc.), but at the same time to assure that any excess production capacity is prevented from producing consumer goods for the lower classes. That excess capacity is instead directed to producing excess military goods which will ' ultimately rust away or be destroyed in warfare; that is, the excess capacity is deliberately wasted in order to turn it away from the production of goods which would result in added leisure or well-being for the lower classes. Those classes are instead continually forced into group activities expressing hatred toward the current enemy (any enemy) and dependency upon and love toward their benevolent rulers for protecting them from that enemy. They are thereby led to accept the consumer shortages, the poverty, and the other privations to which they are subjected. Their economic status is kept at the subsistence level, forcing their priorities to be focused on simply acquiring basic food, clothing, and shelter. They are thus denied either the time or the inclination to question the fairness or permanence of their societal condition, or to otherwise evolve into a threat to the established hierarchy."

George Orwell in his book "1984"

 

"It is now clear that we are facing an implacable enemy whose avowed objective is world domination by whatever means and at whatever cost. There are no rules in such a game. Hitherto acceptable norms of human conduct do not apply. If the United States is to survive, long-standing American concepts of "fair play" must be reconsidered. We must develop effective espionage and counterespionage services and must learn to subvert, sabotage and destroy our enemies by more clever, more sophisticated, and more effective methods than those used against us. It may become necessary that the American people be made acquainted with, understand and support this fundamentally repugnant philosophy."

Doolittle Report - White House commission to study the ClA's covert activities , 1954

 

"The collapse of the Soviet Union ... ended China's main usefulness to the United States as an ally, while enhancing its new status as a possible long-term rival to American hegemony. In the wake of the Cold War, with the Pentagon intent on maintaining near Cold War levels of military spending, enemies on the global horizon were much needed.
With the Soviet army increasingly seen as a disintegrating "paper tiger," China's economic emergence as a major power in the Pacific offered one possible fit with the Pentagon's need for a major enemy."

Chalmers Johnson in his book "Blowback"

 

"There's really no serious proposal about what to do about the severe problems of health, education, homelessness, joblessness, crime, soaring criminal populations, jails, deterioration in the inner cities - the whole raft of problems... In such circumstances you've got to divert the bewildered herd, because if they start noticing this they may not like it, since they're the ones suffering from it... You have to whip them up into fear of enemies."

Noam Chomsky in his book "Media Control"

 

"This is total war. We are fighting a variety of enemies. There are lots of them out there. All this talk about first we are going to do Afghanistan, then we will do Iraq, then we take a look around and see how things stand. This is entirely the wrong way to go about it... If we just let our vision of the world go forth, and we embrace it entirely, and we don't try to piece together clever diplomacy, but just wage a total war . . . our children will sing great songs about us years from now."

neoconservative Richard Perle

 

"In the eyes of officials and citizens of a given country, a 'terrorist' is someone who is killing friends, but the murderer of political enemies is labeled a 'rebel' or a 'freedom fighter."

Chicago Sun-Times columnist Carl T. Rowan, 1984

 

"In order to rally people, governments need enemies...if they do not have a real enemy, they will invent one in order to mobilize us."

Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietnamese Buddhist monk

 

"The need for major states as enemies stems partly from the fact that only the perceived presence of enemy states can justify military spending at the level which the industries concerned have come to demand."

Anatol Lieven in his book "America Right or Wrong"

 

"From the era of US wars to disarm and eliminate "merciless Indian savages" to the era of capitalist wars to contain and then vanquish red communism, to the current era of global police and military operations mounted in the name of opposing the largely manufactured demon of al-Qaeda, the American empire of material aggrandizement has always required an external enemy to give military support to the expansionary enterprises of its biggest engines of corporate profit. It has required pretexts to present wars of aggression as self-defence."

Anthony J. Hall in his book "Earth into Property: Colonization, Decolonization, and Capitalism"

 

ENVIRONMENTALISM

"'Big Green' has been used to describe the biggest environmental organizations in the United States. These are heavily-staffed, well-funded non-profit corporations each with budgets in the tens of millions of dollars a year, offices in Washington, DC and other major cities, highly paid executive directors, and a staff of lobbyists, analysts and marketers. Big Green environmental groups together raise and spend hundreds of millions of dollars a year, most of it contributed by non-profit foundations and individual donors. Many of the Big Green groups partner with corporations and have representatives of major corporations on their boards of directors."

"Report from Iron Mountain (1967) was the first publication to draw together themes that have been linked together ever since. It is the source document for a key constellation of ideas, namely: (1) that the threat of war must be replaced by another threat, preferably global in scope, (2) that the ecothreat is the best of several possible replacements, and, finally, (3) that the threat must be cultivated and the populace prepared before the "solution" to the threat can be applied."

Larry Abraham with Franklin Sanders in their book "The Greening: The Environmentalists' Drive for Global Power"

 

"It may be that gross pollution of the environment can eventually replace the possibility of mass destruction by nuclear weapons as the principal apparent threat to the survival of the species. Poisoning of the air, and of the principal sources of food and water supply, is already well advanced, and at first glance would seem promising in this respect; it constitutes a threat that can be dealt with only through social organization and political power. But from present indications it will be a generation to a generation and a half before environmental pollution, however severe, will be sufficiently menacing, on a global scale, to offer a possible basis for a solution."

Report from Iron Mountain, 1967

 

"The World Wildlife Fund is supported by the Rockefeller family and a host of oligarchical families and major corporations. It is an organization of stealth designed to parade about as a pro-environment, pro-animal organization but in reality, is a tool of the 1% to gain control of wildlife and wildlife refuges for the benefit of international banks and corporations."

Brandon Turbeville, 2016

 

"The figures at the helm of each and every one of the major environmental foundations such as the World Wildlife Fund, the Heritage Trust, the Nature Conservancy, the National Wildlife Federation, The Sierra Club, the World Wilderness Congress, Conservation International, and the Center for Earth Resource Analysis, are key members of the elite political organizations, including the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, the Club of Rome, and the Trilateral Commission)."

Larry Abraham with Franklin Sanders in their book "The Greening: The Environmentalists' Drive for Global Power"

 

"The WWF [World Wildlife Fund] was established in 1961... Thirty years later, the WWF controls 10% of the world's surface."

Dutch Attorney J. Wilgers

 

"The figures at the helm of each and every one of the major environmental foundations (such as the World Wildlife Fund, the Heritage Trust, the Nature Conservancy, the National Wildlife Federation, The Sierra Club, the World Wilderness Congress, Conservation International, and the Center for Earth Resource Analysis are key members of the elite political organizations previously and repetitiously identified (i.e., the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, the Club of Rome, and the Trilateral Commission)."

Larry Abraham with Franklin Sanders in their book "The Greening: The Environmentalists' Drive for Global Power"

 

"Global environmentalism requires global planning, global regulation. and inevitably, global bureaucrats."

Wall Street Journal, November 8, 1989

 

"The environmental issue has clearly been selected as the major policy initiative to be developed... It might be possible to enhance the environmental threat, or even to invent a fake issue if an appropriate real one could not be found."

Larry Abraham with Franklin Sanders in their book "The Greening: The Environmentalists' Drive for Global Power"

 

"The global elites genuinely believe they are the destined elite worthy to rule the world. Environmentalism is merely the rally, ragged rationalization designed to hoodwink the world into accepting their rule."

 

ESPIONAGE ACT - 1917 / SEDITION ACT - 1918

"Anti-war protesters in 1917, after the Espionage Act was passed, were often arrested and sentenced... Today's Espionage Act, ostensibly \directed at domestic terrorism, is just as wide-ranging."

William F. Pepper in his book "An Act of State: the Execution of Martin Luther King"

 

"The Espionage Act of 1917 made it a crime punishable by a fine of $10,000 and 20 years in jail to attempt to "convey false reports or false statements with intent to interfere with the operation or success of the military or naval forces of the United States or to promote the success of its enemies...or attempt to cause insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, or refusal to duty.
... The Sedition Act of 1918, made it illegal to "utter, print, write, or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the form of government of the United States...or any language intended to...encourage resistance to the United States."

Annie Zirin, 2002

 

"The Sedition Act passed by the Federalist Congress in 1798 prohibited "any false, scandalous and malicious writing... against the government of the United States, or President of the United States, with intent to defame said government (or Congress or President) with intent to bring them into contempt or disrepute, or to excite against them the hatred of the good people of the United States."

Lewis Lapham in his book "Gag Rule"

 

"The Espionage Act of 1917, and an amendment, the Sedition Act of 1918 made it a crime to "willfully utter, print, write or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the form of government of the United States," punishable by a $10,000 fine and up to twenty years in prison."

"At the center of oligarchy is the idea that certain families are born to rule as an arbitrary elite, while the vast majority of any given population is condemned to oppression, serfdom, or slavery. Oligarchs identify wealth purely in money terms, and practice usury, monetarism, and looting. The oligarchy has believed for millennia that the Earth is overpopulated.
The essence of oligarchism is summed up in the idea of the empire, in which an elite identifying itself as a master race rules over a degraded mass of slaves or other oppressed victims. If oligarchical methods are allowed to dominate human affairs, they always create a breakdown crisis of civilization, with economic depression, war, famine, plague, and pestilence. A pillar of the oligarchical system is the family fortune. The continuity of the family fortune which earns money through usury and looting is often more important than the biological continuity across generations of the family that owns the fortune."

"The Venetian Black Nobility and the Concept of Oligarchy" an article by Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley & James Higham

 

"By the early 1930's, the British Crown had a stranglehold on the biggest supplies of gold and diamonds ever found in the world. Now, the Committee of 300 had at its disposal both the vast fortune coming from the drug trade and the equally vast fortune of the minieral and metal wealth of South Africa. Financial control of the world was complete."

John Coleman in his book "Conspirators' Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300"

 

"The British East India Company/British government held the monopoly in opium trading - the only people allowed to make instant fortunes were the nobility, the aristocracy, the plutocrats and oligarchical families of England."

John Coleman in his book "Conspirators' Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300"

 

"European dynastic families constitute a financial oligarchy; they are the power behind the Windsor throne [Britain]. They view themselves as the heirs to the Venetian oligarchy, which infiltrated and subverted England from the period 1509-1715, and established a new, more virulent, Anglo-Dutch-Swiss strain of the oligarchic system of imperial Babylon, Persia, Rome, and Byzantium."

historian Jeffrey Steinberg, henrymakow.com 2004


"The European Black Nobility is responsible for the insidious entanglements of numerous secret societies, lodges, and organizations, which are backed with high finance and powerful political connections.
Such organizations include: Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group (German version of CFR), Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), United Nations (founded by CFR), Illuminati order Skull & Bones (inner circle of the CFR), International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, Bank of International Settlement, Club of Rome, Chatham House (formally the Royal Institute of International Affairs ­ RIIA), Round Table, Tavistock Institute for Human Studies (England's psychological warfare think tank), Associated Press, Reuters (Rothschild owned news monopoly used for brainwashing the masses), and many others, all of which, whether they are dupes or adapts, work in favor of Great Britain's aristocracy and their one world government agenda. Although there is a wide cross-section, all roads lead to the Queen of England."

John Colman, 2012

 

"The Swedish Nobel and French Rothschild families discovered oil in Russia through their Far East Trading Company, which later combined with Oppenheimer family interests to become Shell Oil. The Dutch House of Orange joined forces with the British House of Windsor in the Dutch East Indies to launch Royal Dutch Petroleum."

Dean Henderson in his book "Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf"

 

"The British Crown, i.e., the Royal Family, joined the British East India Company's trade, and used it as a vehicle to produce opium in Bengal, and elsewhere in India, controlling exports through what was called "transit duties," that is, the Crown levied a tax on all producers of opium duly registered with the state authority, who were sending their opium to China.
Prior to 1896, when the opium trade was still "illegal"- there never having been the slightest attempt to stop the trade - colossal amounts of opium were shipped out of India on board "China Tea Clippers" which supposedly carried chests of tea from India and China to the London exchanges."

John Coleman in his book "The Committee of 300: A Brief History of World Power"

 

"Royal Dutch/Shell is controlled by the Rothschild, Oppenheimer, Nobel and Samuel families along with the British House of Windsor and the Dutch House of Orange."

Dean Henderson in his book "Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf"

 

"The Black Nobility are the oligarchic families of Venice and Genoa, who in the 12th century held privileged trading rights (monopolies). The first of three crusades, from 1063 to 1123, established the power of the Venetian Black Nobility and solidified the power of the wealthy ruling class. In 1204 the oligarchic families parceled out feudal enclaves to their members, and from this date, they built up power until government became a closed corporation of the leading Black Nobility families.
The European Black Nobility is responsible for the insidious entanglements of numerous secret societies and organizations, which are backed with high finance and powerful political connections. Such organizations include: Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), United Nations, International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, Bank of International Settlements (BIS), Club of Rome, Chatham House, and many others. Present day European Black Nobility families are connected with the House of Guelph, one of the original Black Nobility families of Venice from which the House of Windsor and thus
the present Queen of the United Kingdom Elizabeth II descends."

John Coleman in his book "The Committee of 300: A Brief History of World Power"


"During the Middle Ages, European power centers coalesced into two camps: the Ghibellines and the Guelphs. The Pope then allied himself with the Guelphs against the Ghibellines resulting in their victory. All of modern history stems directly from the struggle between these two powers. The Guelphs were also called the Black Guelphs and Black Nobility. Every subsequent coup d'état, revolution and war has centered in the battle of the Guelphs to hold and enhance their power, which is now the World Order. The power of the Guelphs grew through their control of banking and international trade."

Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley & James Higham in their book "The Venetian Black Nobility and the Concept of Oligarchy"

 

"Every British monarch since 1729 has benefited immensely from the drug trade."

John Coleman in his book "Conspirators' Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300"

 

"There is a vast network of private financial interests, controlled by the leading aristocratic and royal families of Europe.
A secret cross-linked vast holding of private financial interests, tied to the told aristocratic oligarchy of Western Europe, was developed (Club of the Isles). It was in many ways modeled on the 17th-century British or Dutch East India Company models.
The center of this Club of the Isles is the financial center of the old British Empire, the "City of London"."

William Engdahl , Executive Intelligence Review, April 1997

 

"Dope = Big Business and Big Business is done by the oligarchical families of Europe and the United States Eastern Liberal Establishment. The drug business is not a Mafia operation, nor one run by the Colombian cocaine cartels. The noble families of Britain and America's top people are not going to advertise their role in the shop windows; they always have a layer of front men to do the dirty work."

John Coleman in his book "Conspirators' Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300"

 

FALSE FLAGS

"The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. [The public] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened."

Josef Stalin

 

"The easiest way to carry out a false flag attack is by setting up a military exercise that simulates the very attack you want to carry out . This is exactly how government perpetrators in the US and UK handled the 9/11 and 7/7 "terror" attacks, which were in reality government attacks blamed on "terrorists"."

Captain Eric H. May, former Army military intelligence and public affairs officer, 2008

 

"9/11 was an example of state-sponsored, false-flag, synthetic terrorism. The 9/11 events were organized and directed by a rogue network of high government and military officials of the United States, with a certain participation by the intelligence agencies of Britain and Israel, and with a more general backup from the intelligence agencies of the other Echelon states Australia, New Zealand, Canada."

Webster Griffin Tarpley in his book "9/11 Synthetic Terror - made in the USA"

 

"For many Americans, the idea that we are living in a country whose own leaders planned and carried out the attacks of 9/11 is simply too horrible to entertain. Unfortunately, however, there is strong evidence in support of this view."

9/11 and American Empire : Intellectuals Speak Out
edited by David Ray Griffin and Peter Dale Scott

 

"Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Stephen Hadley, Elliott Abrams, and Condoleezza Rice ran the attacks [9/11].
It was called a stand down, a false flag operation in order to mobilize the American public under false pretenses... it was told to me by the general on the staff of Wolfowitz.
I taught stand down and false flag operations at the national war college, I've taught it with all my operatives so I knew exactly what was done to the American public."

Dr. Steve R. Pieczenik , Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under Nixon, Ford and Carter

 

POWER: "At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now."
BBC HOST: "To get this quite straight, you were running an exercise to see how you would cope with this and it happened while you were running the exercise?"
POWER: "Precisely."

Peter Power, former Scotland Yard anti-terrorism agent, who was a contract employee working in government exercises on the day of the July 2007 London railway bombings - interviewed by BBC

 

"The owner of all three [World Trade Center] buildings was Larry Silverstein, who had recently doubled the insurance value of the Twin Towers. He stated in a PBS interview that he and the New York Fire Department agreed to a controlled demolition of WTC 7. Since skyscrapers are not [normally] wired for demolition -- unless someone intends to demolish them -- Silverstein's statement is an admission that 9/11 was an inside job."

Captain Eric H. May, former Army military intelligence and public affairs officer, 2008

 

"[Operation Northwoods] The U.S. government declassified documents showing that in the 1960's, the American Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a plan to blow up American airplanes, and also to commit terrorist acts on American soil, and then to blame it on the Cubans in order to justify an invasion of Cuba."

Washington's Blog, Global Research, 2010

 

"The Israeli embassy had been advised in advance by Scotland Yard of an impending bomb attack [London, July 7, 2005]:
Just before the blasts, Scotland Yard called the security officer at the Israeli Embassy to say they had received warnings of possible attacks.
... Israeli Finance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was warned by his embassy not to attend an economic conference. Netanyahu was staying at the Aidridge Hotel in Mayfair. The conference venue was a few miles away at the Great Eastern Hotel close to the Liverpool subway station; where one of the bomb blasts occurred."

Michel Chossudovsky in his book " America's War on Terrorism"

 

"The former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence admit that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA, carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s and blamed the communists, in order to rally people's support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism."

Washington's Blog, 2010

 

"At least until 1978, the Israeli secret service infiltrated Italian subversive organizations and on more than one occasion gave arms, money and information to the terrorist Red Brigades. The Israeli plan was to reduce Italy to a country torn by civil war so that the United States would have to depend more on Israel for security in the Mediterranean."

Italian senior magistrate Ferdinando Imposimato

 

FASCISM

"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of State and corporate power."

Benito Mussolini - dictator of Italy

 

"When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross."

Sinclair Lewis, 1835

 

"Don't even whisper that the USA is a fascist empire, even though it's obvious to anyone who's even half awake that corporations own the government on every level, and that fascism by Mussolini's own definition is the merger of state and corporate power."

John R. Hall

 

"Bankers represent corporatist fascism and monopoly. Through their great wealth they control most governments and their court systems. That is why your elected representatives do not listen to you. They have already been purchased by Wall Street and banking. These are the same people who have financed most wars on both sides for centuries. Through their banks, and the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), they control money laundering and the worldwide drug trade, which is the most lucrative of all enterprises."

Bob Chapman

 

"The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism - ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power."

President Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

"We're not moving toward Hitler-type fascism, but we're moving toward a softer fascism: Loss of civil liberties, corporations running the show, big government in bed with big business."

Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX), 2007

 

"The really dangerous American fascist is the man who wants to do in the United States in an American way what Hitler did in Germany in a Prussian way. The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power.
They claim to be superpatriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution. They demand free enterprise but are the spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest. Their final objective toward which all their deceit is directed is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjugation."

US Vice President Henry Wallace to the New York Times, April 9, 1944

 

"I wouldn't call it fascism exactly, but a political system nominally controlled by an irresponsible, dumbed down electorate who are manipulated by dishonest, cynical, controlled mass media that dispense the propaganda of a corrupt political establishment can hardly be described as democracy either"

columnist Edward Zehr

 

"The central bank of a nation finances monopoly industry and imperial states, both of which are created out of debt bondage to the central bank. Both the commercial/industrial elites and political elites merge their interests - the state will pursue imperial policies that have the effect of benefiting industry, while industry will support the building of a strong, powerful state (and provide a cozy job for the political elite upon leaving the public sector). This makes up the ruling class of a nation, the capitalists, or owners of the means of production, merging with the political rulers of the nation [a definition of fascism]."

Andrew Gavin Marshall

 

"The dictionary definition of fascism is government control over the means of production with ownership held in private hands... The twentieth century fascism of Germany was private monopoly control over the government which then did control industry, but in such a way as to favor the monopolists and to prevent competition."

G. Edward Griffin

 

"Fascism emerges in the midst of a capitalist crisis when the ruling elements mobilize chauvinism and racism to divert the attention of the working people from mobilizing against the capitalist class. This was the concrete experience of fascism during the last major capitalist depression."

Horace G. Campbell

 

"The Nazi state is a dictatorship of monopoly capitalism. Its 'fascism' is that of business enterprise organized on a monopoly basis, and in full command of all the military, police, legal and propaganda power of the state."

economist Robert Brady

 

"There will be no swastikas in an American fascism, but Stars and Stripes and Christian crosses. No fascist salute, but mass recitations of the Pledge of Allegiance. These symbols contain no whiff of fascism in themselves, of course, but an American fascism would transform them into obligatory litmus tests for detecting the internal enemy."

historian Robert O. Paxton

 

"The CFR is a supragovermnental organization that overshadows congress. It is financed by the Tax-exempt Foundations, and portrays itself as a humanitarian group. But its objectives are to erode national sovereignty and merge America into a worldwide government under the control of its members, which include people of tremendous wealth. Basically, their goal is global fascism. The CFR is responsible for setting major policy, which is activated without public knowledge or consent. It is beyond congressional investigation."

Mark M. Rich, "The Hidden Evil"

 

"The chief distinction of fascism is the partnership between business and government."

Larry Abraham with Franklin Sanders, "The Greening"

 

"Dominionists wait only for a fiscal, social or political crisis, a moment of upheaval in the form of an economic meltdown or another terrorist strike on American soil, to move to reconfigure the political system. Such a crisis could unleash a public clamor, for drastic new national security measures and draconian reforms to safeguard the nation. Widespread discontent and fear, stoked and manipulated by dominionists and their sympathizers could be used by these radicals to sweep aside the objections of beleaguered moderates in Congress and the courts, those clinging to a bankrupt and discredited liberalism, to establish an American theocracy, a Christian fascism."

Chris Hedges

 

"Every day that the conservatives in Congress, the right-wing talking heads, and their noisy minions are allowed to hold up our ability to govern the country is another day we're slowly creeping across the final line - toward fascism - beyond which, history tells us, no country has ever been able to return."

Sara Robinson

 

"Hitler has a deep respect for the Catholic church and the Jesuit order; not because of their Christian doctrine, but because of the 'machinery' they have elaborated and controlled, their hierarchical system, their extremely clever tactics, their knowledge of human nature and their wise use of human weaknesses in ruling over believers."

Hermann Rauschning, 1939

 

"The United States is extremely lucky that no honest, charismatic figure has arisen. Every charismatic figure is such an obvious crook that he destroys himself, like McCarthy or Nixon or the evangelist preachers. If somebody comes along who is charismatic and honest this country is in real trouble because of the frustration, disillusionment, the justified anger and the absence of any coherent response. What are people supposed to think if someone says 'I have got an answer, we have an enemy'? There it was the Jews. Here it will be the illegal immigrants and the blacks. We will be told that white males are a persecuted minority. We will be told we have to defend ourselves and the honor of the nation. Military force will be exalted. People will be beaten up. This could become an overwhelming force. And if it happens it will be more dangerous than Germany."

Noam Chomsky

 

"I'm afraid, based on my own experience, that fascism will come to America in the name of national security."

Jim Garrison, New Orleans District Attorney, prosecutor in the JFK assassination conspiracy trial

 

"It may well be that the real agenda of the George W Bush administration is to create a kind of soft fascism, a presidential dictatorship or one-party system that presides over a de facto Christian plutocracy, and that has managed to squelch all opposing voices."

Morris Berman

 

"Franklin Delano Roosevelt warned Congress in 1938 that when government is controlled by private economic power, he called that fascism. And he would consider today's control by private economic power -- namely, giant corporations astride the world -- as an even more advanced form of what he called fascism: control of government by corporate interests... the clinical definition of "fascism" is when private concentrated economic power takes government away from the people, turns government into a guarantor, a subsidizer, a covering of corporate power. And corporations now have their executives in high government positions. They have 35,000 full-time lobbies here... And they have 10,000 political action committees."

Ralph Nader, 2007

 

"US policymakers use fascism to protect capitalism, while claiming they are saving democracy from Communism."

Michael Parenti

 

"Fascism is the imposed dictatorship of the ruling class utilizing armed force to preserve the social-economic system wherever it is collapsing. The destruction of democracy-"that bourgeois illusion"-the suppression of all civil liberties, the destruction of the trade unions and the intellectuals, the glorification of the State-these are the natural results of the coming into power of a regime whose one purpose is the salvation of the profit system and whose hired leaders are superpatriots, demagogues, militarists, political racketeers, and fanatics."

George Seldes

 

"I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America."

Senator Frank Church, 1975

 

"When and if fascism finally takes hold in America, the basic forms of government will remain... Fascism will appear to be friendly. The legislators will be in session. There will be elections, and the news media will continue to cover the entertainment and political trivia. Consent of the governed, however, will no longer apply. Actual control will have finally passed to the oligarchic elite controlling the government behind the scenes."

John W. Whitehead, 2015

 

"Left unchecked, the hatred for radical Islam will transform itself into a hatred for Muslims. The hatred for undocumented workers will become a hatred for Mexicans and Central Americans. The hatred for those not defined by this largely white movement as American patriots will become a hatred for African-Americans. The hatred for liberals will morph into a hatred for all democratic institutions, from universities to government agencies to the press. Our continued impotence and cowardice, our refusal to articulate this anger and stand up in open defiance to the Democrats and the Republicans, will see us swept aside for an age of terror and blood."

Chris Hedges

 

"People have reached a point where anything which will save them from Communism is a godsend; and if Fascism or Nazism promises more security than our own democracy we may even turn to them."

Eleanor Roosevelt

 

"Democracy is dead in the United States and the forces of tyranny and authoritarianism offer no apologies for their hatred of democracy and the culture of poverty, immiseration, and cruelty that they want to impose on the American people, if not the rest of the world.
... The protean forces for creating an authoritarian state are in full play in the United States and extend far beyond the shadow of a debased and corrupt politics. A set of complex forces working in tandem is slowly, insidiously eroding the very foundations of a civic and democratic culture. Some of the most glaring issues are massive unemployment; a rotting infrastructure; the defunding of vital public services; the dismantling of the social safety net; expanding levels of poverty, especially for children; and an imprisonment binge largely targeting poor minorities of color."

Henry Giroux

 

"It would be easy for us, if we do not learn to understand the world and appreciate the rights, privileges and duties of all other countries and peoples, to represent in our power the same danger to the world that Fascism did."

Ernest Hemingway

 

"We are being ruled by an oligarchy disguised as a democracy, and arguably on our way towards fascism - a form of government where private corporate interests rule, money calls the shots, and the people are seen as mere subjects to be controlled.
...We are now ruled by an oligarchic elite of governmental and corporate interests. We have moved into "corporatism" which is a halfway point on the road to full-blown fascism."

John W. Whitehead, 2015

 

"Fascism: a system of government that exercises a dictatorship of the extreme right, typically through the merging of state and business leadership, together with belligerent nationalism."

American Heritage Dictionary, 1983

 

"A principle of Italian corporatism, and economic fascism in general, is that private property and business ownership are permitted, but are in reality controlled by government through a business-government 'partnership'."

Andrew Gavin Marshall

 

"The Rockefeller group within the American power establishment, along with numerous related corporate heads from Henry Ford to the DuPonts, had long been attracted to the European models of Mussolini's corporatist Fascism and even German Nazism."

F. William Engdahl, "The Gods of Money"

 

"The elements are in place for fascism: a weak legislative body, a legal system that is both compliant and repressive, a party system in which one party, whether in opposition or in the majority, is bent upon reconstituting the existing system so as to permanently favor a ruling class of the wealthy, the well-connected and the corporate.
... That scheme is abetted by a sycophantic and increasingly concentrated media."

Sheldon Wolin, "Inverted Totalitarianism", The Nation, May 19, 2003

 

"Rather than forcing a populace to adhere to a particular state ideology, the general public in the United States is largely depoliticized through the influence of corporations over schools, higher education, and other cultural apparatuses. The deadening of public values, civic consciousness, and critical citizenship are also the result of the work of anti-public intellectuals representing right-wing ideological and financial interests, a powerful corporate controlled media, and a market-driven public pedagogy that reduces the obligations of citizenship to the endless consumption and discarding of commodities. In addition, a pedagogy of historical, social, and racial amnesia is constructed and ciculated through a highly popular celebrity culture and its counterpart in corporate-driven news, television, radio, and entertainment to produce a culture of stupidity, censorship, and diversionary spectacles."

Henry Giroux

 

"Fascism is on the march today in America. Millionaires are marching to the tune. It will come in this country unless a strong defense is set up by all liberal and progressive forces... A clique of U.S. industrialists is hell-bent to bring a fascist state to supplant our democratic government, and is working closely with the fascist regime in Germany and Italy. Aboard ship a prominent executive of one of America's largest financial corporations told me point blank that if the progressive trend of the Roosevelt administration continued, he would be ready to take definite action to bring fascism to America."

William Dodd, former US Ambassador to Germany, 1938, told a reporter aboard a U. S.-bound ship

 

"I think we already have a fascist executive branch, but that does not translate into systemic fascism yet. Fascism is a middle class phenomenon, which means it is something that happens in countries that have achieved a level of development. Right now we are seeing a preparatory phase by the fascist executive branch, putting in place the legal infrastructure to impose a distinctly American fascism if the opportunity arrives. Guantanamo, PATRIOT Act, the FTAA demonstrations, all of it."

Stan Goff, a retired military. officer' who has spoken out eloquently against the invasion of Iraq

 

"Fascism is a method of preparing a nation for imperialistic adventures which have in the past and will in the future include wholesale slaughter as one of its means."

George Seldes

 

"With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power. American fascism will not be really dangerous until there is a purposeful coalition among the cartelists, the deliberate poisoners of public information. They claim to be super-patriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution."

US Vice President Henry Wallace, 1944

 

"The United States is now a hair's breath from becoming a turnkey totalitarian state."

William Binney, former NSA officer

 

"The Weimar Republic [Germany] was the peak of Western civilization and was regarded as a model of democracy... In 1928 the Nazis had less than 2 percent of the vote. Two years later, millions supported them. The public got tired of the incessant wrangling, and the service to the powerful, and the failure of those in power to deal with their grievances."

Noam Chomsky

 

"Authoritarianism in the American collective psyche and in what might be called traditional narratives of historical memory is always viewed as existing elsewhere. Viewed as an alien and demagogic political system, it is primarily understood as a mode of governance associated with the dictatorships in Latin America in the 1970s and, of course, in its most vile extremes, with Hitler's poisonous Nazi rule and Mussolini's fascist state in the 1930s and 1940s. These were and are societies that idealized war, soldiers, nationalism, militarism, political certainty, fallen warriors, racial cleansing, and a dogmatic allegiance to the homeland. Education and the media were the propaganda tools of authoritarianism, merging fascist and religious symbols with the language of God, family, and country, and were integral to promoting servility and conformity among the populace."

Henry Giroux

 

FEDERAL RESERVE

These eight private banks own the most shares of the Federal Reserve. Essentially, they own the FED.
1. Rothschild Bank of London
2. Warburg Bank of Hamburg
3. Rothschild Bank of Berlin
4. Lehman Brothers of New York (filed for bankruptcy in 2008)
5. Lazard Brothers of Paris
6. Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York
7. Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy
8. Goldman, Sachs of New York
9. Warburg Bank of Amsterdam
10. Chase Manhattan Bank of New York

 

"The Federal Reserve is commonly called the "Fed," confusing it with the U.S. government; but it is actually a private corporation. It is so private that its stock is not even traded on the stock exchange. The government doesn't own it. You and I can't own it. It is owned by a consortium of private banks, the biggest of which are Citibank and J. P. Morgan Chase Company. These two megabanks are the financial cornerstones of the empires built by J. P. Morgan and John D. Rockefeller, the "Robber Barons" who orchestrated the Federal Reserve Act in 1913."

Ellen Brown in her book "Web of Debt"

 

"Every effort has been made by the Federal Reserve Board to conceal its power, but the truth is the Federal Reserve Board has usurped the government of the United States. It controls everything here and it controls all our foreign relations. It makes and breaks governments at will. No man and no body of men is more entrenched in power than the arrogant credit monopoly which operates the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks. These evil-doers have robbed this country of more than enough money to pay the national debt."

Rep. Lewis McFadden, (D PA) Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee, 1914

 

"The Federal Reserve Act, 1913, [was] a coup that authorized a private cartel to create money out of nothing, lend it to the government with interest and control the national money supply, expanding or contracting it at will."

Nikki Alexander, 2009

 

"A private central bank issuing the public currency is a greater menace to the liberties of the people than a standing army...We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt."

Thomas Jefferson

 

"The American central bank (the Fed or the Federal Reserve System) is an institution that is entrusted to regulate banks and other financial institutions, but it is partly owned by the large money center banks. It is in a perpetual conflict of interests. In fact, it can be said that the Fed is the banks' own private government. In good times, large Wall Street banks, bank holding companies and other large integrated financial groups are pretty much left alone and allowed to build profitable but risky and shaky financial pyramids, with scant supervision. When things go bad, however, the Fed stands ready to bail them out with automatic discounting, zero-interest loans and other goodies, the overall cost being transferred to the general public through an inflation tax and a debased currency."

Professor Rodrigue Tremblay, Global Research

 

"To cover the fact that a central bank is merely a cartel which has been legalized, its proponents had to lay down a thick smoke screen of technical jargon focusing always on how it would supposedly benefit commerce, the public, and the nation... there was not the slightest glimmer that underneath it all, was a master plan which was designed from top to bottom to serve private interests at the expense of the public... the system is merely a cartel with a government facade... The Federal Reserve is a scam, and we are its victims."

G. Edward Griffin

 

"The establishment of the Federal Reserve (1913) ensured that the United States would become indebted to and owned by international banking interests, and thus, act in their interest."

Andrew Gavin Marshall, Global Research

 

"Eight families - only four of which reside in the US. - have 80% ownership of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, by far the most powerful Fed branch. They are the Goldman Sachs, Rockefellers, Lehmans and Kuhn Loebs of New York; the Rothschild's of Paris and London; the Lazards of Paris; and the Israel Moses Seifs of Rome."

J. W. McCallister, an oil industry insider with House of Saud connections writing [in The Grim Reaper] about information he acquired from Saudi bankers - from Dean Henderson's book "Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf"

 

"There is no reason why the banks should be in control of the Federal Reserve system."

Senator Robert Owen, 1913

 

"American history in the twentieth century has recorded the amazing achievements of the Federal Reserve bankers. First, the outbreak of World War I, which was made possible by the funds available from the new central bank of the United States. Second, the Agricultural Depression of 1920. Third, the Black Friday Crash on Wall Street of October, 1929 and the ensuing Great Depression. Fourth, World War II. Fifth, the conversion of the assets of the United States and its citizens from real property to paper assets from 1945 to the present, transforming a victorious America and foremost world power in 1945 to the world's largest debtor nation in 1990. Today, this nation lies in economic ruins, devastated and destitute, in much the same dire straits in which Germany and Japan found themselves in 1945."

Eustace Mullins, Secrets of the Federal Reserve, 1991

 

"The Federal Reserve System is a privately owned central bank. While the Federal Reserve Board is a government body, the process of money creation is controlled by the twelve Federal Reserve banks, which are privately owned. The shareholders of the Federal Reserve banks (with the New York Federal Reserve Bank playing a dominant role) are among America's most powerful financial institutions."

Michel Chossudovsky

 

"The shareholders of the banks which own the stock of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York are the people who have controlled our political and economic destinies since 1914. They are the Rothschilds, of Europe, Lazard Freres, Israel Sieff, Kuhn Loeb Company, Warburg Company, Lehman Brothers, Goldman Sachs, the Rockefeller family, and the J.P. Morgan interests."

Eustace Mullins in his book "The Secrets of the Federal Reserve"

 

"When the federal government needs more money, the Federal Reserve does not merely create and print it as it would do were it a government agency. No, the Federal Reserve creates it as a loan and charges the government interest on it."

U.S. State Senator Jack Metcalf (R-WA)

 

"In 2012 the Government Accounting Office conducted the first top-to-bottom audit of the Federal Reserve. It revealed that the Fed had provided $16 trillion in secret loans to bail out American and foreign banks and businesses during the 2008 economic crisis."

Ellen Brown

 

"The Chairman of the Federal Reserve has one essential mandate: to preserve the power of the big banks."

F. William Engdahl

 

"Here are the card-carrying shareholders in the `Federal' Reserve Corporation: Rothschild Banks of London and Berlin, Lazard Brothers Bank of Paris, Isreal, Moses Sieff Banks Of Italy, Warburg Bank of Hamburg and Amsterdam, Lehman Brothers Bank of new York, Kuhn Loeb Bank Of New York, Chase Manhattan Bank Of New York, Goldman Sachs Bank Of New York."

Miles Franklin Newsletter

 

"In the early 20th century, European and American banking interests achieved what they had desired for over a century within America, the creation of a privately owned central bank [Federal Reserve - 1913]. It was created through collaboration of American and European bankers, primarily the Morgans, Rockefellers, Kuhn, Loebs and Warburgs."

Andrew Gavin Marshall, Global Research

 

"All public debt operations go through the Federal Reserve, which is in charge of monetary policy, acting on behalf of private financial interests. The government as such has no authority over money creation. This means that public debt operations essentially serve the interests of the banks."

Michel Chossudovsky

 

"The financial system has been turned over to the Federal Reserve Board. That Board administers the finance system by authority of a purely profiteering group. The system is Private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people's money."

Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr., 1923

 

"We have, in this country, one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board. This evil institution has impoverished the people of the United States and has practically bankrupted our government. It has done this through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it."

Congressman Louis T. McFadden in 1932

 

"The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the president signs this bill, the 'invisible government' by monetary power will be legalized. The people may not know it yet, but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed. The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking bill."

Rep. Charles Lindbergh Sr. (R, MN), just prior to the establishment of the Federal Reserve System

 

"There are six major banks in the U.S. at the present time, and they control most of the stock of the Federal Reserve System. The Rockefeller family has large blocks of stock in two of the major banks: J.P. Morgan Chase and Citigroup. The Rothschild family has a controlling interest in two major banks and significant holdings in the other major banks through the Barclay Bank and the State Street Bank. Why is that important? Two families control the major banks, the major banks control the FED, and the FED controls the U.S. economy."

Stanley Monteith

 

"The dirty little secret is that both houses of Congress have become irrelevant ... in case you hadn't noticed, America's domestic policy is now being run by Alan Greenspan and the Federal Reserve Board ... Congress is out of the loop. Every so often, some senators or house members politely ask Greenspan to visit and talk about the economy.... Then he goes back down to the Fed and runs the country.".

Robert Reich

 

"When the President signs this act [Federal Reserve Act of 1913], the invisible government by the money power - proven to exist by the Monetary Trust Investigation - will be legalized. The new law will create inflation whenever the trusts want inflation. From now on, depressions will be scientifically created."

Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr., 1912

 

"The regional Federal Reserve banks are not government agencies. ... but are independent, privately owned and locally controlled corporations."

US Supreme Court ruling - Lewis vs. United States, 1982

 

"When you or I write a check there must be sufficient funds in our account to cover the check, but when the Federal Reserve writes a check there is no bank deposit on which that check is drawn. When the Federal Reserve writes a check, it is creating money."

"Putting it simply" Boston Federal Reserve Bank

 

"Some people think the Federal Reserve Banks are the United States government's institutions. They are not government institutions. They are private credit monopolies which prey upon the people of the United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign swindlers.

Congressman Louis T. McFadden, 1932 [He was poisoned in 1936]

 

"The Federal Reserve ... controls our monetary policy. By changing the supply of dollars in circulation, they have influence over interest rates, mortgage payments, whether the financial markets boom or collapse, and basically whether our economy expands or stumbles. But the Fed is only partly an institution of government. The stockholders in a dozen different Federal Reserve banks in different regions of the country are the big private banks.
The Federal Reserve was created by Congress in 1913, after a financial panic that led to a secret meeting at banker J.P. Morgan's private resort, off the coast of Georgia at a place called Jekyll Island.
... What emerged was a cartel agreement with five objectives: stop the growing competition from the nation's newer banks; obtain a franchise to create money out of nothing for the purpose of lending; get control of the reserves of all banks so that the more reckless ones would not be exposed to currency drains and bank runs; get the taxpayer to pick up the cartel's inevitable losses; and convince Congress that the purpose was to protect the public. It was realized that the bankers would have to become partners with the politicians and that the structure of the cartel would have to be a central bank."

Jesse Ventura in the book "American Conspiracies"

 

"The Federal Reserve system is private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other peoples' money. They know in advance when to create panics to their advantage, and they also know when to stop panic. Inflation and deflation work equally well for them when they control finance."

Rep. Charles Lindbergh Sr. (R. MN), 1914

 

"For most of the twentieth century the Federal Reserve System, particularly the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (which is outside the control of Congress, unaudited and uncontrolled, with the power to print money and create credit at will), has exercised a virtual monopoly over the direction of the American economy."

Antony C. Sutton in his book "Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler"

 

"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 money system. When one gets a complete grasp of the picture, the tragic absurdity of our hopeless position is almost incredible, but there it is."

Robert H. Hemphill, circa 1939, Credit Manager, Federal Reserve Bank in Atlanta

 

"When the Federal Reserve Act was passed, the people of these United States did not perceive that a world banking system was being set up here. A super state controlled by international bankers and international industrialists acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure. Every effort has been made to conceal its power but the truth is the Fed has usurped the government."

Congressman Louis Mcfadden

 

"What the people of the United States do not understand and never have understood is that while the Federal Reserve Act was governmental, the whole Federal Reserve System is private. It is an officially created private banking system.
... The Federal Reserve System is a system of private banks, the creation of a banking aristocracy within an already existing autocracy, whereby a great proportion of banking independence was lost, and whereby it was made possible for speculative financiers to centralize great sums of money for their own purposes, beneficial or not."

Dearborn Independent, July 2, 1921
