The Federal Reserve Banking System
An Eye Opening, Revealing, Troubling And Under the Radar Look at The Implementation and Operation of the Federal Reserve Banking System...Essentially, "Counterfeiting and Theft"
The Federal Reserve Banking System is a well thought out front for funding a power hungry, sinister and self
Disguised as Being "Legal"
serving group of "wolves dressed in sheep's clothing" who have and are continuing to fleece America of her
wealth and snuff out the very freedoms and liberty that once enabled us to become and remain a "truly free"
and liberated people. That's certainly changed. Wake up world while you still can. - Chuck Danes
What do you think the Federal Reserve is and what
purpose do you "think" it serves?
“Some people think that the Federal Reserve Banks are United States Government institutions. They are private monopolies which prey upon the people of these United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers; foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers; and rich and predatory money lenders.” – The Honorable Louis McFadden, Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee in the 1930s
If you've been on this planet for any time at all, you've no doubt heard of the Federal Reserve Banking System and/or the group who oversees it, aka the FED.
What you may not be aware of, (MOST aren't) is the power given those who oversee the Federal Reserve System, the damage they've done and will continue to do, not only in the U.S. where the so called legal creation of The Federal Reserve took place in 1913, but on a much larger scale. A global scale in fact.
Many are taught and learn of the 3 branches of government in school. What we don't learn and for the most part AREN'T aware of is what "truly happened and is still happening today as a result of control of our monetary system being handed over to what's called The Federal Reserve.
The Federal Reserve Act which was adopted into "law" in 1913, essentially gave the Fed more power than the Judicial, Legislative and Executive branches of government combined.
How so? By handing over control of our nation's money supply plain and simple.
It certainly opened the door for greed, the infiltration of special interests and widespread corruption within as well as outside of the various branches of government.
As many of our founding Fathers and the "honest politicians" who preceded them so wisely and correctly stated in various ways...
"He who controls the money supply of a nation, controls the nation."
James Garfield - 20th President of the United States
That's precisely what happened. In 1913, the Federal Reserve was given control over our "money supply", DOES control the money supply of this nation today and it's reach, power, influence and control extends well beyond U.S. borders.
Although the reach and power of those who oversee the FED is vast, it's monetary scheme "extremely complex" (on the surface that is) and could never be possibly described in it's entirety in a volume of books, what follows is a brief overview of the control and affect the FED (more accurately it's "private" investors) has on our money supply and ultimately our freedom.
Before we get into what the Federal Reserve is and how they do things, do your best to keep this in mind. In essence the FED is a "private corporation" or what some call a "private banking cartel." Not literally, because in a sense they have created a "partnership of sorts" with the federal government.
You could refer to the Federal Reserve as a "hybrid institution" that is "privately owned" and one hand and the other, a partner with the federal government.
It was certainly a questionable and under the radar kind of way, but nonetheless, it's here and it has been since 1913. No point in dwelling on water under the bridge, but it's way PAST time to clean up the stench and stagnation.
You could call this "so called" partnership between the Federal Reserve and the government, a partnership where a corporation made up of "private bankers and investors" reap huge rewards from this "partnership."
Although MANY think the Federal Reserve is a federal agency, it's not. It's no more "federal" than Federal Express.
If the Fed were actually a federal agency, the government wouldn't be "paying interest on money" that the Federal Reserve prints and literally creates out of thin air.
If the Federal Reserve WERE a "federal agency" (kind of like the U.S. Treasury is), the government wouldn't be paying interest to anyone, except maybe to itself. It could and would print and issue U.S. currency directly, avoiding an unnecessary interest-bearing debt that's handed over to a small group of private bankers who are really nothing more than middlemen who create what many "call and think" is money.
What's truly amazing, yet at the same time sinister about this "questionable arrangement" is the fact that this "so called money" is created out of thin air.
Important point. Paper currency that the Federal Reserve prints and creates out of thin air is NOT money. It's CALLED money. They would have and want you to continue to BELIEVE that it is money, but it's NOT. Things like gold and silver that have hard "intrinsic value" are money.
Printed currency is only "worthless paper" and is perceived as "money" because of how and what people have been programmed and conditioned to believe.
I go into greater detail and cover more about that in the Gold is the Ultimate Store of Value article.
Back to the Federal Reserve being a sort of "private corporation...
The board which oversees the Federal Reserve is rightfully named the Federal Reserve Board. This "board" is made up of "investors" who have a vested interest in the Fed.
It's a "private corporation" of sorts.
The Fed generates profits for its shareholders and like any "corporation", it's their "duty" to generate as much "profit" as they can for those investors.
The whole concept is quite "flawed", VERY under the radar and heavily weighted to benefit this "private corporation's" investors at HUGE cost to citizens.
It's really nothing more or less than a dark and sinister form of theft of sorts and YOU are one of the victims so to speak. The fact is, no one (including you or I) is "truly" a victim, although those who choose to remain unaware of how things work as well as those who choose to continue to turn a blind eye, will certainly "call themselves" victims.
The fact is, WE as a people are at cause for what HAS and for what IS taking place.
Although what follows is not intended to be nor does it provide a comprehensive view of the Federal Reserve Banking System, the Federal Reserve Board who oversees it, or The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 which gave the FED it's power, it provides a needed "glimpse" so more can become "aware" of what's going on.
Providing a comprehensive view would "literally" be impossible.
What it is intended to do is wake up the asleep, complacent and apathetic masses, through providing a birds eye view of the last 100 years of history revealing how and why the U.S. government handed over control of our entire monetary system as well as an incomprehensible amount of power and influence to an already influential group of elite and VERY wealthy "private" bankers.
I think it's important to say up front, I have no problem with wealthy bankers. I love the concept of free enterprise. What I do have a problem with, and am quite aware of, is a group of very wealthy power hungry bankers with dark and sinister agendas and what's transpired since 1913 when an almost unbelievable, incomprehensible and unfathomable amount of power and control was handed over to them under the guise of a being a "legal system" while masterfully creating an "illusion" that it's for the good and benefit of the people and the country.
As you'll see soon, it's not. In fact, as is proving to be the case more and more EVERY year, it's a system of theft and counterfeiting that is fleecing the wealth of the people, ruining the country and has "devalued" the dollar to the point where it's "nearly worthless."
The fact is, paper dollars are and always have been worthless "pieces of paper" since 1971, which is a topic discussed in other articles which you can learn more about through The REAL Truth About Money as well as The Bretton Woods Agreement of 1994.
What it IS purposefully intended to do, is enhance awareness, ignite curiosity, encourage critical thinking skills and perhaps even, if necessary, encourage you to do your own due diligence, so you might see the need and necessity of making more conscious decisions regarding your finances, guarding your money wisely, regardless of how much or how little you have.
Hopefully, you'll see the importance of DOING something to stop the fleecing and the erosion of our liberties and freedoms via the "mask" that is known as the Federal Reserve.
I mention due diligence and ACTION because that's something MOST don't do, which is precisely why our monetary system is in SO much trouble and why freedoms we enjoyed in years passed are long gone....for now at least. Although most aren't and DON'T DO anything about it, it's of VITAL importance to restore the Republic and our sovereignty to it's "original state" guaranteed us via Real Law created BY and FOR the people, aka The Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights.
Swift ACTION is not needed but necessary if that action equates to nothing more than "informing others" so that MORE in the world might become keenly aware of how the individuals who oversee and control the money machine known as the Federal Reserve Banking System have...
- ...devalued the purchasing power of U.S. dollars by 98% ($1.00 is REALLY .02 cents)
- ...adversely impacted many of the world's economies and financial systems since inception of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 for their own self serving interests.
- ...created a system of unfathomable debt which fleeces the people's wealth and enslaves entire populations
- ...acquired control, power and influence of tyrannical proportion from (and over) entire governments (both here and abroad)
- ...initiated an almost inconceivable amount of manipulation and control over globally structured governmental institutions and sinister, self serving power over global and individual governmental legislation created under the guise of legality
- ...systematically eroded and robbed us of our liberties and freedoms since it's inception
- ...consistently grown it's power and control to influence government, in essence becoming a "shadow government" using political parties and the institution of government itself as a mask to divert attention from the domination and power it utilizes and yields
- Enabled the "selling off" of MANY of the people's assets via U.S. land purchases to foreign entities
- ...purchased and acquired MUCH of mainstream media to better control, manipulate, program, indoctrinate and dumb down the masses
Those are some strong accusations that I don't share happily or take lightly. But they are far more than accusations. It's substantiated and verifiable FACT that can be easily discovered and clearly SEEN by ANYONE who chooses to do what's necessary to SEE it.
For those who haven't and perhaps never will, here's WHY it's important regardless of who believes it's true, (which it most certainly is) whether you or anyone else THINKS it is or not.
The front for the agenda known as The Federal Reserve extends well beyond U.S. border and is about A LOT more than money, finances and financial systems.
If you've been on this planet for anytime at all, YOU see and have personally experienced what's happening too.
In my 57 years on this planet, I've SEEN, experienced and have personally witnessed the gradual erosion of our freedoms and the liberty afforded and guaranteed to us. As troubling, scary and sinister as it is, I've watched as the continual disintegration of the letter of law granted and provided to us via the Constitution of The United States of America and the Bill of Rights has taken place.
Things are MUCH different than they were. The U.S. Constitution is considered nothing more than a living, breathing document and The Bill of Rights? What's that? The differences arising from the "shift" from a Republic to a Social Democracy (nice, friendly and "harmless sounding" phrase) are escalating at an alarming rate and becoming all the more apparent with each passing year....almost daily in fact.
The general attitude of the vast majority of people regarding The Federal Reserve as well as the institutions, private interests and the sinister agendas it funds, is something along the lines of "There's nothing we can do."
It's that very attitude that if held and continued will as Thomas Jefferson so "insightfully and on target" stated..."The banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
It's WAY Past Time to Accept Personal Responsibility and DO Something While "Something" Can Still Be Done
As it pertains to the Federal Reserve amongst many other atrocities taking place on a global scale, a lot blaming and finger pointing is going on. Blaming and finger pointing isn't going to "change" anything.
ACTION is needed and proactive steps are vitally important.
We, as a people have allowed what's unfolded to happen. We allow it to continue. A large price has been and will continue to be paid, unless and until we The People, in the U.S. and globally become AWARE, decide that enough is enough, unite and take a stand to change it.
I think it's also important to say that the years of research I've personally done regarding the Federal Reserve, (the FED) although beyond sinister and VERY troubling, those findings, perceptions and the candid sentiments that follow are in no way, shape or form intended to judge, wrongly label, nor are they directed toward any single individual in the Federal Reserve or any other institution. What it IS intended to do is reveal a SYSTEM...a very dark and sinister system that is QUITE REAL, funding a liberty destroying agenda that IS happening and is going to cost the people of the world dearly, not only dollars but their unalienable right to freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
It's intended to describe and shed light on the SYSTEM known as the FED and the many "nonprofit" as well as "for profit" institutions it uses to carry out it's global agenda. The intent is to reveal it as the "powerful, dark and sinister system" that it is, NOT as a judgement or an individual attack on any person or people who work within that system.
As is the case with many "dark, self serving and freedom eroding systems", oftentimes those who work within them have no idea whatsoever that their work is contributing to the self serving interests of a few, yet on a very large and sinister scale, impoverishing the many.
What is the Federal Reserve?
Let's cut to the chase and reveal what I've discovered and believe to be the NOT so sugar coated truth regarding what the Federal Reserve truly is and the far reaching damage that's been done on a global scale since it's inception.
Behind The Federal Reserve is a power hungry, corrupt, dark and self serving banking cartel overseen by an elite group of "private GLOBAL bankers" which is, and HAS been for MANY years, creating as well as Legally STEALING money from the uninformed and unaware masses since it's inception in 1913.
I say "legally stealing" because the the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, which gave power and control to this elite group of bankers, although CLEARLY unconstitutional, isn't widely recognized as anything "illegal" at all which is a BIG part of the problem. The system itself is designed to mask an "outright form of theft" by the majority who are impacted and affected by the fleecing that has and still is taking place.
But it goes WAY beyond money and finances.
Money is no longer the objective. This elite group has surpassed any need for acquiring more money long ago. Now it's a matter of exercising and expanding their "fear based" power and might to further diminish the freedoms and liberties that we as a people have enjoyed in years passed.
The fact of the matter is, the vast majority of those who are controlled, manipulated and being affected by it, are oblivious to what has taken and continues taking place.
The bottom line is, like it or not, the FED is slowly but surely destroying America, her monetary system and it's reach and power is impacting, in VERY sinister ways, many other parts of the world as well.
Accepting personal responsibility for what has happened individually and collectively is essential since we as a people have "enabled and allowed it" to happen.
It's more akin to a "legalized form of theft" made possible by a questionable partnership which was formed (under questionable circumstances) between the U.S. federal government and a small group of very wealthy and savvy bankers, who many years ago were granted the power to oversee and control the money supply of the United States via the the implementation of the Federal Reserve Act which was passed and adopted into "law" in 1913.
It's a questionable partnership at best with far reaching consequences, which, as warned by our founding fathers as well as many influential people in politics long before the time the current FED was given control of our money supply and the power that would yield to those who control and operate it, would lead to great trouble in the years that followed.
As our founding fathers, numerous politicians as well as FED members themselves have openly stated, giving the control of our money supply and handing over the kind of power that yields, over to a "private corporation", enabling it's small yet private group of investors to reap the benefits of a debt ridden monetary system which was designed and operates in DEBT, also enables this "elite group" to consistently increase their wealth and power by charging and earning interest off of the very debt it creates, has led to the greatest transference of wealth in U.S. history.
The result, as warned (and as is clearly evident today) has led to a GLOBAL monetary system that's in BIG trouble and a once strong American currency that is now "virtually worthless" resulting in the U.S. economy teetering on the brink of collapse.
The economic woes and troubles that are impacting much of the world today has stemmed from the initial agreement (the Federal Reserve Act of 1913) combined with a series of troubling and sinister events which have taken place since.
Perhaps one of the most troubling consequences is the DEVALUING of our currency, reducing the purchasing power of our dollar by an astounding 98% since 1913. This DEVALUING of our currency has led to not only a transference of wealth from The People to the bankers, but a mass reduction of the liberties and freedoms afforded to us via the U.S. Constitution and The Bill of Rights which were drafted and considered "Real Law" by our founding fathers long before The Federal Reserve System and a fractional reserve banking system was established.
Just as our founding fathers as well as a number of very wise and forward thinking Presidents and politicians warned long before the Federal Reserve Board was granted the power to oversee, control and manipulate our money supply, the current situation they warned us about many years ago, has blossomed into a very long list of trouble and growing problems that are clearly evident today.
To say that what's transpired since isn't pretty, would be a gross understatement.
Here are just a few of those warnings...
Here's what Thomas Jefferson had to say about allowing a central bank to oversee and control our money supply long before the FED as we know it today was formed...
"The Central Bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the principles and form of our Constitution. I am an enemy to all banks, discounting bills or notes for anything but coin. If the American people allow private banks to control the issuance 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 their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." - Thomas Jefferson
Abraham Lincoln had this to say...
"The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. 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." - Abraham Lincoln
In spite of these warnings, the transference of wealth and the inevitable reduction of our God given liberties and freedoms that both Jefferson and Lincoln warned us about, has taken place. The fact that MOST people have become slaves to money via the GLOBAL money machine which exists today, combined with the erosion of liberty and freedom that we once enjoyed, supports and solidifies both Lincoln's and Jefferson's (as well as MANY others) statements.
This transference of wealth has been transferred FROM the people and INTO the coffers of the elite group of private bankers who govern and oversee the Federal Reserve and in the process created a power within and over the operation of our government's policies and procedures that is almost unfathomable.
But that's precisely what has happened.
It's a well constructed and ingeniously designed system that has enabled and is still enabling the "legal theft" of your money to happen in various ways, not the least of which is a DRAMATIC DEVALUING of our currency, ALL of which are happening right under your nose.
Due to HOW the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was constructed and designed to operate, combined with the "secretive" under the radar way it was implemented, most in the world are oblivious to the FACT that this theft is, has and will continue taking place as long as the Federal Reserve Board is enabled to oversee, control and manipulate the money supply of the U.S.A. as well as the economies of entire countries globally.
The theft that has taken place as well as the erosion of freedom, has been made possible through an interconnected web of deceit, manipulation and other institutions, (private corporations) each of which are, for the most part also privately owned corporate entities who, it appears, have also, via questionable tactics that undermine the U.S. Constitution, created various forms of partnerships with the U.S. federal government.
The theft taking place is happening under the guise of a number of economic factors touting various "labels" which enable and allow this "legal form of theft" to continue.
The vehicles that have been used to precipitate the theft are many...
- Interest Charges on money that doesn't exist
- Federal Income Taxes
It's interesting to note that the 16th amendment and the implementation of the IRS was created just months after the Federal Reserve Act was initiated. In essence, the IRS serves as the Federal Reserve's "personal collection agency" which, like the Federal Reserve, is not a government agency per say, but rather a "private corporation" established in Puerto Rico. put in place to collect taxes which also under the guise of being "legal", attempts to force citizens to pay exorbitant amounts of taxes on their labor, which supports and pays for the "enforcement machine" which enables the theft that has taken and is STILL taking place to continue.
How could this series of events possibly take place in a country founded on liberty and freedom?
Due to the corruption, the power that money provides and the nature of man, who in FAR more cases than not, is easily swayed, driven and corrupted by the allure and acquisition of MONEY and POWER, a select group of politicians (although HOW it was implemented and passed is still questionable to this day) enabled the Federal Reserve Act to be passed and adopted into law in 1913.
I say a "select group" of politicians because the exact date that the Federal Reserve Act was passed was December 23rd 1913 happened while many of the politicians of that era were on break for the holidays.
It's important to note that the Federal Reserve Act, which precipitated the transference of wealth and power that followed, was passed and became "law" not long after a "secret meeting" between a group of elite bankers and politicians which took place on Jekyll Island, was held.
The Central Bank existed long before the Federal Reserve Act became law.
Essentially, based on my research, the Federal Reserve is a credit monopoly that has fleeced entire populations through a secretive, ingenious yet underhanded plot which manipulates and controls the entire monetary system in the U.S. which in turn has adversely impacted the entire GLOBAL monetary system as well as quality of life for the vast majority of citizens globally who make up that population, via a "so called" implementation of "law" known as the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.
It's important to note that there are MANY forms of law and this so called "legislative law" trumped and disregarded "common law" aka the "Law of the Land" which is The Constitution of the United States of America.
What is the Federal Reserve Act?
The Federal Reserve Act was essentially a piece of political legislation passed not long after a "highly secretive meeting" which took place on Jekyll Island just off the coast of Georgia, cemented a partnership between a group of elite bankers and the federal government of the U.S.
The Federal Reserve Act essentially granted this small group of elite bankers the power to create, control and manipulate a monetary system that was constructed and based on debt.
That system is still in place today and operates on the premise of what's known today as a fractional reserve monetary system.
The fractional reserve system is a fancy way to label a system that operates via a DEBT ridden system based on the premise of a tax and spend philosophy.
Although through coercion and manipulation, a debt ridden system can "seem to be working", it's operation can only "work" for so long before an implosion happens.
On June 4, 1963, President Kennedy issued Executive Order 11110. This Executive Order called for the issuance of a new currency. This new currency was called the United States Note as opposed to the Federal Reserve Notes printed by the FED.
Immediately after the executive order was signed, $4,292,893.00 of this currency was printed and put into circulation. This new currency was to be distributed through the U.S. Treasury and not the Federal Reserve System. Unlike Federal Reserve Notes, it was to be issued debt and interest-free.
It's interesting (and from my perspective NOT at ALL coincidental) that this great president was assassinated 5 months later on November 22, 1963. Upon Kennedy's assassination, this U.S. Treasury currency was withdrawn from circulation, never to be issued again.
So What Can Be Done to Secure the Value of Your Money and Ease the Burden Placed on Us by The Federal Reserve Banking System?
My personal recommendation is to do what the wealthy do and construct your own "safe store of VALUE" and make a choice to transfer as many of your "nearly worthless" paper dollars into gold while this "fiat currency" that many refer to as "money" still holds SOME value.
It's what I've done, it's what many around the world are doing and a MUST for EVERYONE to do if they "truly understand" how the monetary system works, what's happening, WHY it is and WHAT must be done to gain some form of control over your finances.
Take it from Alan Greenspan who served as chairman of the Federal Reserve Board from 1987 to 2006...
"The abandonment of the gold standard made it possible for the welfare statists to use the banking system as a means to an unlimited expansion of credit.... In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value.... Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the "hidden" confiscation of wealth.... [Gold] stands as a protector of
property rights." "This is the shabby secret of the welfare statists' tirades against gold. Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the "hidden" confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights. If one grasps this, one has no difficulty in understanding the statists' antagonism toward the gold standard."
