The men who framed the Constitution of the United States sought to safeguard the country against the power of the international Jewish bankers. These men knew what the nations of Europe had suffered at hands of the money power and, therefore, provided a plan whereby only the duly elected representatives of the people in Congress would have a right to control the country's finances. This was a new ideal in the science of government and it caused Europe's banking fraternity to shriek with mortal terror.
There are indications that the fathers of the American government were alert to the dangers of the Talmudic system. It is reported that when the Constitution was being written, Benjamin Franklin even went so far as to demand that Jews should be entirely excluded from the country. He based his attitude upon the experience of the nations of Europe in dealing with this problem.
Charles Pinckney of South Carolina, one of the framers of the Constitution, is said to have kept a diary of the conferences of the convention, in which Franklin is credited with the following statement:
"In whatever country Jews have settled in any great numbers, they have lowered its moral tone; depreciated its commercial integrity; have segregated themselves and have not been assimilated; have sneered at and tried to undermine the Christian religion upon which that nation is founded by objecting to its restrictions; have built up a state within a state; and when opposed have tried to strangle that country to death financially as in the case of Spain and Portugal."
"For over 1700 years the Jews have been bewailing their said fate in that they have been exiled from their homeland, as they call Palestine. But, gentlemen, did the world today give it to them in fee simple, they would at once find some cogent reason for not returning. Why? Because they are vampires, and vampires do not live on vampires. They cannot live only among themselves. They must subsist on Christians and other peoples not of their race."
"If you do not exclude them from these United States, in this Constitution, in less than 200 years they will have swarmed in such great numbers that they will dominate and devour the land, and change our form of government, for which we Americans have shed our blood, given our lives, our substance and jeopardized our liberty."
"If you do not exclude them, in less than 200 years our descendants will be working in the fields to furnish them substance, while they will be in the counting houses rubbing their hands. I warn you, gentlemen, if you do not exclude the Jews for all time, your children will curse you in your graves."
"Jews, gentlemen, are Asiatics, let them be born where they will, or how many generations they are away from Asia, they never will be otherwise. Their ideas do not conform to an American's, and will not even though they live among us ten generations. A leopard cannot change its spots. Jews are Asiatics, are a menace to this country if permitted entrance, and should be excluded by this Constitution."
Observing the manner in which other nations were being choked by the money power, the men who drafted the Constitution did everything they could to protect generations unborn, although they could not consistently go as far as Benjamin Franklin demanded. For this reason they were careful to incorporate the following clause into Section eight of the first Article of the Constitution: "The Congress shall have power to coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin, and fix the standard of weights and measures."
The purpose of this law was to forever keep the control of the nation's money out of private hands. The idea was that Congress alone, the people's duly elected representatives, should reserve this right.
If we will examine briefly the origin of money it will help to better understand what the framers of the Constitution had in mind. While it is true that money is a mysterious substance because of the intangible power that goes with it, yet when its origin is known, it becomes more understandable. It has always been to the advantage of the money changers to keep the people in darkness as to the inner workings of international finance. This is part of the scheme for enslaving the masses. They have skillfully created the impression that money technique is beyond ordinary comprehension.
The word money comes from the old Roman word Moneta, which was the name of a religious temple where gold was coined and deposited. The vaults of the place of worship were guarded by the priests. The yellow metal was regarded as being both precious and sacred.
Walking among the ruins of the ancient temple of Apollo in Delphi, Greece one day, I came upon a beautiful little building called the Athenian Treasury. Its floor had deep grooves carved out of solid rock. In these holes the pagan priests deposited the gold, silver, gems and jewels which were brought to them for safe keeping. The custodians of temple gold came to be known eventually as goldsmiths.
In olden times when a man produced more things than he needed for his personal use, the barter system was employed for exchange purposes. In other words, he would trade some object that he did not need for some other object that he did need.
Beginning about seven centuries before Christ, the custom of coining money was introduced. The power to thus create coins was vested entirely with kings. If an individual was caught usurping this right, he was put to death. This arrangement continued until about the year 1650 when certain changes began to occur which laid the foundation for modern banking.
The clever goldsmiths gained private control of the money of various nations, particularly England. Kings continued to manufacture gold and silver coins, but these began to be hidden away in vaults for the goldsmiths to use as a basis for issuing their own private money in the form of slips of paper. As the power of the goldsmiths increased, they were in many instances even able to control Kings.
Because the goldsmiths were the only persons who had safe places in which to hide valuables, the merchants adopted the plan of bringing their gold and silver coins to them for safe keeping. In exchange, the goldsmith would give the merchant a receipt or certificate. After a while these receipts came to be used for exchange purposes instead of coins. The merchants were soon buying things with their receipts.
Thus, paper money was born. Goldsmiths discovered before long that large quantities of gold and silver were accumulating on their hands, so they issued more receipts-currency. The love of money being the root of evil, designing goldsmiths conceived the plan of inflation and wrote out hundreds of times as many receipts as they had gold coins on deposit. This fraud was later made the lawful basis of modern currency. Had all of the receipt-holders demanded their gold and silver at the same time, there would have been a run on Mr. Goldsmith's "bank" -- and in all probability a banker would have been found the next morning hanging by the neck from the limbs of a nearby tree.
At this point in the evolution of money, the curse of interest was introduced. Goldsmiths were not content to loan something they did not possess; this alone was not sufficient to satisfy their greed; so they began requiring people to pay interest when they were forced to come back for more certificates.
So, by the "dog eat dog" process, merchants. were compelled to work and scheme in order to get other certificates from their fellows to be able to pay back the certificates which they had borrowed from the goldsmiths. Business began to be transacted in terms of interest-bearing certificates instead of coins. Meanwhile, the goldsmiths used interest as a means for holding merchants by the throat.
The invention of interest is called usury. It is the chain that binds the masses today. As long as the goldsmiths were able to control the gold, they could control the paper issued from the gold, and thus they could control the people who had to have the paper in order to live. Wherever the gold is, there rests the power to rule the world.
We have now seen how the trickery of the goldsmiths became the foundation of the modern gold standard. The gold reserve behind paper money is all that the goldsmiths of the twentieth century need to produce whatever panics, depressions, riots and spasms of anarchy they may desire.
That is why the international goldsmiths of today do not want to see silver taken as a basis for paper money as well as gold. There is so much silver in the world that it would be difficult for them to control it.
The late F. G. Bonfils once said: "All the gold produced in the world in 438 years would only make a block 38 feet square." This is the kind of a golden-calf that the world worships. By controlling this huge nugget, the internationalists find it possible to rule the world.
The men who drafted the Constitution wanted to keep the modern goldsmiths from gaining control of the nation. They, therefore, placed the right to govern the country's finances solely in the hands of Congress. Under this plan, the most prosperous nation in the world was built up in less than one hundred years.
But international bankers are not fools. They waited until the opportune time came and prevailed upon Congressmen to vote away the Constitutional rights of the people to "coin money (and) regulate the value thereof." How this deception was put over constitutes one of the darkest chapters in American history. It was manipulated by the Rothschilds, the Warburgs and other families of Jewish bankers.
John Sherman, a United States Congressman from Ohio, was the tool that the Rothschilds used in driving in the opening wedge. Through their plot they were able to force Congress to vote the right of governing the money out of the hands of the people and give it over to private banking interests.
Mr. John Sherman has written us from a town in Ohio, U.S.A., as to the profits that may be made in the National Banking business under a recent act of your Congress, a copy of which act accompanied his letters. Apparently this act has been drawn upon the plan formulated here last summer by the British Bankers Association and by that Association recommended to our American friends as one that if enacted into law, would prove highly profitable to the banking fraternity throughout the world.
"Mr. Sherman declares that there has never before been such an opportunity for capitalists to accumulate money, as that presented by this act and that the old plan of State Banks is so unpopular, that the new scheme will, by contrast be most favorably regarded, notwithstanding the fact that it gives the National Banks an almost absolute control of the National finance. 'The few who can understand the system,' he says 'will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantages that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interest."
"Please advise us fully as to this matter and also state whether or not you will be of assistance to us, if we conclude to establish a National Bank in the City of New York. If you are acquainted with Mr. Sherman (he appears to have introduced the National Banking Act) we will be glad to know something of him. If we avail ourselves of the information he furnished, we will of course make due compensation."
We beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of June 25th, in which you refer to a communication received from the Hon. John Sherman of Ohio, with reference to the advantages and profits of an American investment under the provision of our National Banking Act."
"The fact that Mr. Sherman speaks well of such an investment or of any similar one, is certainly not without weight for that gentleman possesses in a marked degree, the distinguishing characteristics of the successful modern financier. His temperament is such that whatever his feelings may be they never cause him to lose sight of the main chance. He is young, shrewd and ambitious. He has fixed his eye upon the presidency of the United States and is already a member of Congress. He rightfully thinks he has everything to gain both politically and financially (he has financial ambitions too) by being friendly with men and institutions having large financial resources, and which at times, are not too particular in their methods, either of obtaining governmental aid, or protecting themselves against unfriendly legislation. We trust him here implicitly. His intellect and ambition combine to make him exceedingly valuable to us. Indeed, we predict that if his life is spared he will prove to be the best friend the monied interest of the world have ever had in America."
"As to the organization of a National Bank here, and the nature and profits of such an investment, we beg leave to refer to our printed circular enclosed herein. Inquiries by European capitalists, concerning this matter, have been so numerous, that for convenience we have had our views with regard to it put into printed form."
"Should you determine to organize a bank in this City, we shall be glad to aid you. We can easily find financial friends to make a satisfactory directory and to fill official positions not taken up by the personal representatives you will send over."
The National Banking Act was the ignoble deed which made it possible for Congress to delegate its power over the nation's money to the international Jewish banking fraternity. What the National Banking Act started, the Federal Reserve System finished. Paul Warburg, president of Kuhn, Loeb and Company, was the German Jew, who was sent over to America. to finish perverting the country's financial system. He is generally credited with having written the Federal Reserve Act which was enacted during the Jewish controlled Wilson Administration. From the hour this measure was adopted by Congress, the people lost complete control of their money.
Like Warburg, the founder of the House of Rothschild was also a German Jew. The original Rothschild was born in 1743 and his real name was Mayer Amschel. He was a money lender by trade and used a Red Shield as the emblem of his company, from which the name Rothschild was derived. Like a gigantic octopus the financial tentacles of this Jewish organization now reach into all parts of the world.
The primary purpose of the foregoing dissertation is to show how easy it would be for a group of internationally minded men to mould the world according to their desires if they had access to the sources from which money originates. To admit the possibility of such an arrangement is equivalent to admitting that such a plot as that disclosed by the Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion could exist.
