BOOK REVIEW OF FORGOTTEN CLASSIC DETAILS BANKERS’ BETRAYAL OF EVERY AMERICAN
‘People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders.’
‘. . . a money system based on debt will ultimately ruin any nation
and every person in the nation except the money lender.’
‘Wars are not fought for democracy; they are fought
for the preservation of the money system.’
There’s something you probably don’t know that you probably should know. The people who sabotaged the founding of the American republic are the same ones who are sabotaging it now.
Written in 1940 in the months before World War II broke out, Lightning Over the Treasury Building is a concise and compact history of banking, clear as a bell in a hundred pages about the disease that is slowly killing something we never dreamed would be destroyed — that farfetched experiment in freedom known as the once-beloved but now-feared United States of America.
You could make an interesting chart of three presidential assassinations (1865-1881-1900) as being a roadmap that tracks the incursion of control by the Rothschilds into the U.S. banking system, culminating in the Great Panic of 1893, which led up to the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913, which is when the United States became totally subservient to the Jewish bankers in London. Abraham Lincoln’s ‘Greenbacks’ earned him a bullet in Ford’s theater, James Garfield’s comment about the volume of money got him a visit from a would-be assassin but he was finished off by doctors, and William McKinley was gunned down while shaking hands with citizens by a man sent from the Jewish-dominated Workingmans Hall in Brooklyn (a kosher mafia neighborhood which was to send Trotsky’s terror troops to Moscow in 1916).
Author John R. Elsom is said to be a pseudonym for a group of men in Washington who were primarily focused on the poverty that had gripped the U.S. for more than a decade after the start of the Great Depression. It’s chilling to realize the authors were not expecting a war, but when they wrote this book, FDR had not yet engineered the inside job fiasco of Pearl Harbor.
President Garfield’s tumultuous quote was this: “Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of industry and commerce.” Today, most readers will not comprehend the validity of this observation because they have been taught not to recognize that it has been the sudden, unannounced reduction in the VOLUME of the money supply that even to this day enables the rich to foreclose on struggling farmers and the poor among us to regularly lose all our belongings.
The whole narrative of Lightning Over the Treasury Building aims to chronicle the stunning cuts in the money supply that ruined the lives of millions of Americans by poverty. Instead that money was used as the fuel that runs the engine of death which has been so profitable for the banks down through time.
Listen to what the bankers said in 1935.
The Banker’s Manifest
“Capital must protect itself in every way, through combination and through legislation. Debts must be collected and mortgages foreclosed as soon as possible. When through a process of law the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and more easily governed by the strong arm of the law, applied by the central power of wealth, under control of leading financiers.
People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders.
This is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of capital to govern the world. By dividing the people we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us except as teachers of the common herd. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been generally planned and successfully accomplished.
The above was printed from the banker’s manifest — for private circulation among leading bankers only — taken from the Civil Servants Year Book, “The Organizer” of January, and the “New American” of February 1934.
FDR and Trump: Warmongering brothers
While campaigning for his first term as president in 1932, Franklin Delano Roosevelt stole a sales pitch from Jesus when he promised to drive the moneychangers from the temple. In keeping with a tradition among winning presidential candidates begun long before and still running today, no further mention of this vow was heard during FDR’s 12 years in office.
Appealing to patriotic Americans has always been a surefire hit during presidential campaigns. This same strategy calls for the disappearance of such sentiments once the election is won. Far from driving the moneychangers from their impregnable financial fortress, Roosevelt made more money for the Jews than any of his predecessors by almost single-handedly coordinating the start of World War II. (Reference Mark Weber’s story on the Polish ambassador.)
Eighty-six years later Donald Trump won his election in 2018 by convincing white patriots he was on their side. A few blinks of the eye later, Trump is Israel’s public relations director, enlisting the fake Muslims in Saudi Arabia and selling their sadistic sheik billions in state-of-the-art weaponry to aim at Iran. The more things change, the more they remain the same. Will the new Hiroshima be in Tehran or Sebastopol?
Pauperization through interest
“It is surely quite obvious that a money system based on debt will ultimately ruin any nation and every person in the nation except the money lender,” Elsom wrote. But the golden nugget here: the only way to get money into circulation is to borrow it. When the people become too poor to borrow it, the government steps in and borrows it. This is the first of many bites the bankers take out of your dollar. It is what they charge you to use your own money.
The bankers had another reason to want to shrink the money supply, a slightly darker reason, which this snip from the New York World reveals.
“American labor must make up its mind henceforth not to be so much better off than European labor. Men must be content to work for less wages. In this way the working man will be nearer that station in life to which it has pleased God to call him.”
The parasitical banking fraternity, which makes the largest profits of any class of business, also pays the lowest wages to their employees. They like to see 300 men clamoring for every job [and they don’t mind] seeing long lines of half starved men at their factory gates, seeking employment, each morning.
Garfield’s warning was adequately verified by the statistics which show a collapse of the per capita currency rate which began at $50.46 in 1863 and by subtle confiscations impoverished all but the richest Americans down to $11.23 by 1878, and later down to 6.67 by 1887.
“During the 14 years in which money was being destroyed by the bill “To Reform Coinage and Mint Laws” . . . there were almost 150,000 business failures . . . with the resultant profits to the bankers, through the acquiring of those properties, together with a proportionately greater number of farms and homes.”
The sly move to demonetize silver probably was the biggest single chunk out of the American fortune that was taken by the bankers in their drive to reduce everyone to slave status. The move was triggered by the Rothschilds in England, who owned a lot of gold but not much silver. This initially unnoticed piece of legislation in 1882 during the U.S. Grant administration turned out to be a time bomb that went off during the Panic of 1893, when the banks “retired” silver certificates and Treasury notes.
It was the order to all the bankers that really hit the nation in the gut: “You will at once retire one third of your circulation and call one half of your patrons — especially among influential business men. This meant that the powers that be were ordering financial Armageddon for even the most prosperous of Americans, and because they stated it openly there was no way to even oppose the decision.
Once again, the bankers had put a gun to the heads of ordinary Americans. Even then, it was business as usual, and still is.
Why borrow money?
“We were not foolish enough to try to make a currency coverage of gold of which we had none, but for every mark that was issued we required an equivalent of a mark’s worth of work or goods produced.”
— Adolf Hitler
“Little pieces of paper made Germany in six years a nation whose power challenges the world,” Elsom wrote, “because those little pieces of paper put people to work, gave them food, unified them into a phalanx behind their leaders, and built an empire whose boundaries if they continue to extend will encompass our earth.”
“Why can’t American statesmanship take this lesson to heart?” Elsom asked. Perhaps this was the salient question of the 20th century.
This is but one of many questions Elsom addressed about the funny business involved with the creation of our money.
Why notes instead of bills?
Elsom once wrote to the Assistant Secretary of the Treasury:
Will you be so good as to explain to me why it is necessary to issue United States Bonds instead of United States notes? . . . millions of American citizens asking the question why congress does not us the power vested in it by Artcle 1, Section 8, Part 5 of the Constitution to “coin money and regulate the value thereof.”
This is the fateful question that has yet to be forthrightly answered up until the present moment.
The negative effects of this practice?
Bankers have stolen from Congress the right to issue and regulate the value of money. “It has given us a system of legalized banditry unparalleled in the history of nations,” Elsom wrote.
It has allowed a small group of Internationalists (a well known synonym for Jews and their goy lackeys) to dominate all legislatures. It has made every citizen a slave of money-creating bond-holding bankers. The entire national debt would never have happened if Congress had issued the money rather than borrowed it.
Among the ten other aspects Elsom enumerates,
It has caused the domination of our School System by the money monopolists, in the matter of Economics, so that college graduates do not know that the Government does not issue our principle medium of exchange — that the Federal Reserve is not a Government Bank — that the Government gave, without charge, to the Federal Reserve Bank, 7/9ths of the Nation’s hoard of Gold — that our present economy is unconstitutional — or that Wars are not fought for the preservation of Democracy, but rather for the preservation of the Money System, collection of European investments and to increase the National Debt.
But looking on the bright side . . .
If Congress live up to its Constitutional mandate and coined its own money, the benefits to the people would be immediate and enormous.
Firstly, the principle motive for war will be removed.
Second, there will be no future debt problem once Interest free Constitutional Money is used for government business.
It will reduce taxation from 50 to 75 percent — or perhaps erase taxation entirely — by ending the payment of interest on unconstitutionally issued and unnecessary Government Bonds.
It will forever end inflation and deflation . . . by which the Banking System has engineered the exploitation of the people so that the real wealth of the nation could be gathered to themselves.
It will solve the unemployment crisis immediately.
Among 15 ways Elsom lists government retaking control of its own money supply these two stand out:
It will end all un-American activities by rescuing the people of the nation from the grip of the fountain-pen money-creators, bond holders, interest collectors and mortgage foreclosers — the present wreckers of the republic — and by making American a Nation of happy, prosperous people. Every citizen and every stranger within our gates will be so completely sold on the “American way” that no other way will be thought of.
. . . and . . .
It will dethrone Gold as the Nation’s god and make money the servant instead of the master of the people. The Rule of Gold will be superseded by The Golden Rule and true spiritual values will gain the ascendancy over material values. Thus the Kingdom of God will be extended on earth.
Countdown to oblivion
Our leaders, rather than helping us, have been slowly bleeding us to death, preaching noble thoughts but collecting Jewish money under the table and safekeeping it next to Mitt Romney’s store of cash in the Cayman islands.
As far as I’m concerned, any society run by bankers will be destroyed by its own greed. Bankers may never be entrusted with the moral direction of civilization. It is a false sense of necessities they create. We have reached such an advanced point of deterioration that only the generosity of nature can save us now, and that is a matter for the spiritual realm. To avoid the spiritual realm, as the world is doing now, guarantees disaster and extinction.
Lightning Over the Treasury Building was written at a time when forthright opposition to the criminal Jews and their control of the money supply was still a mainstream conversation topic. This relevant speech was made in the same era.
Father Coughlin "Drive the money-changers from the temple!" 2:35
“Why? Oh! Why? Will someone please stand and state why the Federal Reserve System should not be taken over by the Government and the interest on our borrowings from ourselves paid to ourselves instead of to the money barons?” Elsom asked.
Instead of having a $500 billion debt (this was in 1940, remember) we would have a $100 billion surplus, which gives you some idea of both how much the bankers have stolen from us and how much we would make if we paid ourselves for our money instead of giving our hard-earned cash to the money barons, who manage to stay rich by fomenting wars and getting us to kill our own children.
That calculates out to today's $21 trillion debt could have been our $4 trillion surplus but for the greed of the bankers and the politicians they bought.
