â€œAll wars are banker's wars.â€ - this is an important quote from a banking insider. This short ebook presents evidence that our global system of private banking is seriously flawed, primarily due to the greed and fraud conducted by a small group of wealthy families. In the United States, the Federal Reserve system is owned by a group of private corporations, including the Rothschilds. The Federal Reserve is a private corporation. It is not Federal, and there are no reserves. We, the taxpayers of the United States, have been lied to, stolen from, and exploited by these private banking corporations. The owners of these private banks are responsible for many, if not all, of the wars on our planet. This has been happening for more than 200 years, with the Rothschild family. A few quotes from respectable sources: â€œI sincerely believe that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.â€ - Thomas Jefferson It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. - Henry Ford "Let me issue and control a nation's money, and I care not who makes the laws" - Mayer Amschel Rothschild. These are the private companies that own the Federal Reserve Banks: Rothschild Bank of London Warburg Bank of Hamburg Rothschild Bank of Berlin Lehman Brothers of New York Lazard Brothers of Paris Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy Goldman, Sachs of New York Warburg Bank of Amsterdam Chase Manhattan Bank of New York â€œThe modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing.â€ - Josiah Stamp, Director of the Bank of England â€œMost Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders. The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates outside the control of Congress and manipulates the credit of the United States.â€ - Sen. Barry Goldwater â€œThe regional Federal Reserve banks are not government agencies. â€¦but are independent, privately owned and locally controlled corporations.â€ - Lewis vs. United States, 680 F. 2d 1239 9th Circuit 1982 According to former Congressman, Dr Ron Paul, the Federal Reserve is an illegal banking system, owned by a cartel; and it should be eliminated. The First Bank of the United States was set up, largely through the efforts of the Rothschild's chief US supporter, Alexander Hamilton.
