Revealing quotes from those who know
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." - Thomas Jefferson 1816
"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed." - U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864 (letter to Col. William F. Elkins) Ref: The Lincoln Encyclopedia, Archer H. Shaw (Macmillan, 1950, NY)
"The real menace to our Republic is the invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over the city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen. At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as the International bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually runs the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties. It seizes in its long and powerful tentacles our executive officers, our legislative bodies, our schools, our courts, our newspapers, and every agency created for public protection" - John Hylan, 1922, Mayor of New York (1918-1925)
"We have in this country, one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known.

It has done this through the corrupt practices of the money vultures who control it." - Rep. Louis T. McFadden (R-PA) 1932
"Capital must protect itself in every possible way, both by combination and legislation. Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible.

"These truths are well known among our principal men, who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance.
"It is thus, by discrete action, we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."
- Montagu Norman, Governor of The Bank Of England, addressing the United States Bankers' Association, NYC 1924

"With the creation of the new global economy comes the demand for a fundamental re-alignment of policy-making power, away from national governments to some as yet undefined institutional order where the traditional nation-state plays a subordinate role."
- "The World Economy: The search for mechanism of transition", National Australia Bank Share-holder's Review, October 1986
"The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented ... Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money, and with a flick of the pen they will create enough money to buy it back again ... if you want to continue to be slaves of the bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money and control credit." - Sir Josiah Stamp, Head Of The Bank of England, 1781
"The [Council on Foreign Relations] grew out of the Inquiry, a secretive group of well-educated bankers and lawyers who accompanied Woodrow Wilson to the Paris Peace Conference of 1919. The council saw [as] its mandate the calling of signals from the sidelines.... [T]he [elites] govern, while the lowly men of elective office...dirty their hands with politics... The international institutions conceived in 1945 - the UN, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund - were anticipated in studies done at the council." - New York Magazine, Oct. 7, 1996

I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country. - Thomas Jefferson
"I believe that if the people of this nation fully understood what Congress has done to them of the past 49 years, they would move on Washington, they would not wait for an election… It adds up to a preconceived plan to destroy the economic and social independence of the United States." - Senator George Malone of Nevada, 1957, while speaking of the Federal Reserve
"History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance." - James Madison, fourth President of the United States (1809–1817)

Woodrow Wilson (These statements were made after his realization that the signing of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was the worst decision he ever made)

"Right after the Civil War there was considerable talk about reviving Lincoln's brief experimentation with the Constitutional monetary system. Had not the European money-trust intervened, it would have no doubt become an established institutional." - Willard Cleon Skousen (1913 - 2006, conservative author, political commentator, and academic)
"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 the other people's money." - Rep. Charles A. Lindberg (R-MN)

By 1873, gold coins were the only form of coin money." - Ernest Seyd (Representative of International Bankers)
"The division of the United States into federations of equal force was decided long before the Civil War by the high financial powers of Europe.

"The money power preys upon the nation in times of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy." - Abraham Lincoln

"Actually it was the calculated shearing of the public by the World-Money powers triggered by the planned sudden shortage of call money in the New York Money Market" (That triggered the collapse of the stock market in '29) "For a long time I felt that FDR had developed many thoughts and ideas that were his own to benefit this country, the United States. But he didn't... Most of his thoughts were carefully manufactured for him in advance by the Council on Foreign Relations - One World Money Group." "The United Nations is but a long range, international banking apparatus clearly set up for financial and economic profit by a small group of powerful One-World revolutionaries, hungry for profit and power."

"If this mischievous financial policy, which has its origin in North America, shall become endurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessity to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous without precedent in the history of the world. The brains, and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That country must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe." - Times of London
"It is not our own citizens only who are to receive the bounty of our government. More than 8 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." - Andrew Jackson, Bank Veto Message, July 10, 1832
"If [government] would confine itself to equal protection, and, as Heaven does its rains, shower its favour alike on high and the low, the rich and poor, it would be an unqualified blessing.

"The death of Lincoln was a disaster for Christendom. There was no man in the United States great enough to wear his boots...

They will not hesitate to plunge the whole of Christendom into wars and chaos in order that the earth should become their inheritance." - Otto von Bismark
