Growing Up in a
“Who really owns our Money?”
How does our Money System work?
Money. We immediately think of dollars. But what are these dollars we consider to be money? A Federal Reserve Note creates what we know as U.S. dollars. These dollars are the most dangerous weapons in the United States, and potentially, the world. There are quite literally trillions upon trillions of these ‘weapons of mass economics’ between paper money and virtual money. Just like in a real war, the guy with the most weapons, generally wins. So who has the most guns? We grew up in this system of money so this is how we believe money is supposed to be. However, is there another way? Is this truly how an economy is supposed to function with money? Let’s discuss this in greater detail.
The Federal Reserve
Did you know the Federal Reserve in the United States is a private company owned by private individuals and is an autonomous, independent figure, separate than the United States government? The Federal Reserve states that it is not privately owned. Read between the lines of their ownership statement and it is obvious that the central bank is actually owned by private individuals through other banks by law and regulation manipulation. The claim is also that the Federal Reserve does not operate for profit. Yet with promised private dividend payments and exclusive private stock options, this is a highly interwoven complex system that appears as public yet is clearly private. After all, how can those dividends be paid out if the Federal Reserve is not generating income, and looking at the United States federal government interest payments on the U.S. deficit shows just how inflated those payments truly are (source). This means the entire money supply of the United States is produced and controlled by a very select few rich elitists that own the Federal Reserve (through ownership of the banks that own the Federal Reserve) completely separate than elected Congressman, and, as a result, have sufficient unlimited funds to lobby for their choice of Congressmen to elect to the United States government at all positions. Ever heard the saying that 1% of the world population own the majority of the world’s wealth? Well these people, commonly referred to and known as ‘Money Changers’ are not the 1% rich elitists of the population, but rather the 1% of the 1%. One particular well-known family belonging to these Money Changers is the Rothschild family.
The Money Changers
‘Money Changers’ is a name passed on since Biblical times for the what we now know as the international bankers that control the central banks of the world we now live in. Note that though we have depicted an image based on Biblical times, the reference is to illustrate the importance of the story, not the religious implications. The key to take away is that the Money Changers have been around for centuries, conspiring and deceiving, dating far enough back to be seen in Biblical stories. These Money Changers make their living by manipulating society through accumulated wealth to utilize their choice of currency as a means of
medium of exchange and charge a premium to acquire that medium of exchange, known as money.
This may sound complicated, but really it is not. If you have wealth that people desire, you can utilize that wealth by giving it to a few unique leaders, and through those leaders, convince the general population to use your choice of money. Since you have independent control of that money, you can manipulate the use of it by the general public to meet your own investment needs. For example, if you want a recession to occur, you’d simply remove money from circulation. Less money means less buying power by people, and therefore people spend less and buy less. When people buy less, a recession occurs as the economy has less money circulating through it. These Money Changers then force prices down, in which today, we know as the stock market. When prices are lowered, the Money Changers buy up the stock (after all, the market can’t drop if people are not selling stock, and you can not sell something unless someone is buying it). Once the Money Changers buy up the stock at lower prices, they manipulate the market by producing more money into society, increasing buying power, which makes people spend more, making prices rise and the economy grow. This raises the stock market. So what happens? Stocks go up from small companies to large companies, food commodities like corn to metal commodities like copper. The key is that the stocks that the Money Changers bought goes up in value, and therefore, generate wealth. This is a factually known manipulation that has gone on for centuries and is kept secret for the general population for very obvious reasons. This control of the money supply is through central banks.
A central bank, is a privately owned and controlled company which has a monopoly on the entire money supply of an economy. These central banks focus heavily on manipulating banking regulations of the country they reside in to suit their needs. The first major central bank to successfully control a government is the Bank of England, which formed and officially took power in 1694. The Federal Reserve, though very government-sounding, is a private company in the United States that took power in 1913, contrary to the wishes of the general public. These private companies, called central banks, have complete control over the creation of of money in any given nation they reside in. They control the economics of a country through expanding and contracting the money supply, causing bull and bear markets respectively. These private companies quite literally have a monopoly on the money creation industry of a country.
But aren’t companies sued if they are considered monopolies? Microsoft in the 1990s comes to mind. Yet Microsoft and Bill Gates are mere drops in the bucket compared to how rich the people behind the Federal Reserve are. The extreme rich people, ie: Money Changers, lobby/bribe/etc all political parties in the United States so that no matter the political outcome, a debt-based currency presides. We watch our politicians debate over one budget cut versus another. Cuts for the military. Cuts for social programs. Increases for the military. Increases for social programs. The Money Changers do not care which wins or loses. Either way, as long as we are in a debt-based society, the Money Changers win. This is a concept most people do not know. And this is something most people should know. There is a solution. But first, let’s touch on debt-based currencies.
What is a debt-based currency?
Simple. The United States currency is based on bonds, which are based on the good faith of the United States government, produced by the Federal Reserve, then lent out to the banks. These banks then, utilizing fractional reserve banking, lend out that money at 10x the quantity of the original amount lent out. And what makes matters worse is that the big banks like JP Morgan Chase Bank NA, Citibank National Assn, Bank of America NA, and Goldman Sachs Bank NA, all get money from the Federal Reserve, and, almost certainly, own the Federal Reserve as well. The absolutely crazy part is that these big banks lend out the money at 10x to people in the form of loans, usually as mortgages. These elitists that own the banks collect interest on these loans, making money. What is worse is that the United States government has a deficit, which is quite literally a debt owed to the Federal Reserve. This debt requires interest payments. These payments go to the same people that own the big banks. The payments come
from federal income tax of the American people based on their wages and businesses. This absolute dominance and control is, by nature and definition, a monopoly. It is a monopoly on the money supply owned by one independent and private company. All the American citizens are paying for it. This sounds like a good deal for the elitist rich Money Changers and a rather bad deal for the majority of tax paying citizens (and even the non-tax paying people) in the United States.
Whoever Controls the Banks Controls the Money System
“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations will grow up around them and will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”
Third President of the United States
Do we need a debt-based currency? No. Not in the slightest. The United States Constitution gives the authority to the U.S. government to issue its own currency, without debt. A note in the form of debt is backed by the good faith of the United States government. A bill based on no debt is still backed by the good faith of the United States government. Either suffices since all a bill is, is a medium of exchange for goods and services, ie: the definition of money. No matter the article used as money, Dollars, Euro, or as the ancients Aztecs used, Chocolate, the point is simple: Money is a means to an end of getting what we want. The concept of having money in the form of debt is simply a means for the Money Changers to get an ends of revenue and income based on that debt. The only reason we operate with debt in such a fashion is because the Money Changers use their wealth, mostly acquired through this debt-based system, to continue having a debt-based system, by their monetary influence and control over our governmental officials and politicians. The point is that a debt-based currency means higher taxes on people to pay down government debt. A non-debt based currency means less taxes because no interest has to be paid for that government debt, therefore reducing the cost. The answer seems a simple choice for the majority of the population.
“It is not our own citizens only who are to receive the bounty of our Government. More than eight millions of the stock of this bank are held by foreigners… Is there no danger to our liberty and independence in a bank that in its nature has so little to bind it to our country? … Controlling our currency, receiving our public moneys, and holding thousands of our citizens in dependence would be more formidable and dangerous than a military power of the enemy. If government would confine itself to equal protection, and, as Heaven does its rain, shower its favor alike on the high and the low, the rich and the poor, it would be an unqualified blessing. In the act before me there seems to be a wide and unnecessary departure from these just principles.”– Andrew Jackson, in his veto against renewing the Second Bank of the United States Charter
This quote is a portion of a speech by Andrew Jackson, the Seventh President of the United States, in opposition of a fiat currency based on debt by a centrally held bank. This was the second central bank to come into power in the United States. And Andrew Jackson would not see it survive knowing the dangers. Andrew Jackson realized a central bank was controlled by the Money Changers, of international banking decent. In other words, foreigners of elitist wealth and greed would be in control of the entire United States economy money supply. Unfortunately for the American people, this was not the end of Money Changers attempts to conquer America through a centralized banking system. The exact same bank did succeed in 1913 and was named the Federal Reserve.
Abraham Lincoln, the Sixteenth President, attempted to create a non-debt based currency known today as the Greenbacks. This was a very welcomed form of currency by the American people as a currency.
“The government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credit needed to satisfy the spending power of the government and the buying power of consumers. The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of government, but it is the government’s greatest creative opportunity. By the adoption of these principles… the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity.”
Lincoln had it right. There was no need for a central bank. By having the U.S. government in control of its own money, the taxpayers would therefore be in control of their own money supply. By being in control, American citizens would have the ability to determine what social services they wished to pay taxes on, and how much those taxes should be. The currency known as Greenbacks that Abraham Lincoln had created was becoming widespread, at the time, and a danger to the Money Changers. Ironically and coincidentally (though in no ways being claimed in this writing as deliberate), Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. No longer alive, he could not stop the Money Changers from working to remove the Greenbacks from circulation. This left the American people dangerously open to attack by the Money Changers’ debt-based currency.
Money System Conclusions
Why is this debt-free currency not used in our money system in today’s society? Because money is power. And the elitist that control the debt-based currency have power. Every time a war is fought, aid is sent overseas, a house rebuilt, a mortgage drawn, a car loan issued, or any form of government spending or bank-based loan is created, debt is made. Interest is owed on that debt, and the Money Changers make money as a result.
These banks have an insane amount of money in assets and risk in the form of derivatives.
As of June 30th, 2011:
|Bank Name||Total Assets||Total Derivatives|
|JP Morgan Chase Bank NA||
|CitiBank National Assn||
|Bank of America NA||
|Goldman Sachs Bank USA||
Total risk of derivatives of these four financial institutions:
Before reading on. Go back to that chart and just look at those numbers. Read them aloud. That amount of money is, quite literally, insane. It is almost incomprehensible to contemplate how much money that actually is to have invested in the markets. To simplify the definition of a derivative: A derivative is something that is based on another source. Therefore, the derivative money is based on the asset money. These banks “create” that value based on the assets, even though it is virtual money that does not technically exist.
The next closest bank is HSBC Bank USA National Assn with $195,000,000 in total assets and $3,916,173,000,000. A huge number, but not even remotely close to the top contenders. It seems rather apparent that if one had to guess which banks own the Federal Reserve that one could guess correctly. This is public information. This information and more can be found on the Comptroller of the Currency Administrator of National Banks web site in this report.

The key is do something. Anything. As long as it is legal of course. The United States Constitution allows the U.S. government to issue its own currency debt-free. The Federal Reserve swindled the American people and should be sued in the name of the people by the federal government to take back our stolen wealth.
One could even go so far as to properly audit Fort Knox and discover where all the gold went that was illegal confiscated in 1933 from the American people. Getting that gold back through the legal court systems would also be an ideal solution.
Get our gold back. Bring back a debt-free currency. No interest payments for a government deficit means lower income tax. Get our economy back on track. Support Equality. That is the most viable and direct solution to our economy to bring power, money, and the American Dream back to the American people.
In fact, if the United States government called for an audit and open books of the Federal Reserve, the true owners of the privately controlled central bank would be discovered. Imagine if the owners did turn out, as widely known and accepted, to officially be the major banks listed above (meaning the owners of the banks listed above). The national debt as of October 2011 is 14,868,218,296,426.05. Through the “magic” of fractional reserve banking and derivative risks on assets, the total the above banks have invested in the open market is $235,104,741,000,000. The U.S. debt is but a fraction compared to the money these banks have invested off of non-existing, digital money. Capturing the debt-based stolen wealth back from these individuals would easily pay off the entire Federal government debt, and then some.
Remember, we have been living in the United States under this system since 1913. Before that, the people using this system had been trying to take over for centuries, and had already solidified themselves internationally centuries before that. There is no need for overnight action. Expecting to take back our country could take years. Slow and careful planning to retake back our own society, economy, and freedoms must be done together, realizing it will take time. Change won’t happen over night. The key to change is simple:
