Freedom and Liberty are words with different meanings to many; I suppose we could see, like beauty, freedom and liberty are in the eyes of the beholder. Millions sing along with the lyric “land of the free and home of the brave” even though we currently reside in a country where the masses are more enslaved economically than at any other time in history. We also hear repeatedly that our military is fighting for our freedoms, yet with the past 16 years of continuous warfare, conducted by our military, personal freedoms have evaporated at a rate never before seen in the history of this country.
The country promised by those of our founders known as the Federalists ended and the government predicted by our founders known as the Anti-federalists began on that fateful day of April 9, 1865 at a place known to history as Appomattox Court House. Then and there we all became economic and physical slaves on that great nationalist plantation known as the American Empire, for that is the day our country and its people became the property of the international bankers and their bought and paid for minions known as government employees.
“The funding systems are always based on public debts, for the purpose of transferring the control of the government into the hands of the bondholders as security for their obligations.
Whilst the funding systems last, the government is administered in the interest of the bondholders, who control its legislation. Every independent government is jealous of the rival power of those monied oligarchies, which dethrone monarchies and destroy governments by the transfer of the debt to strangers, who thereby secure a powerful and dangerous influence in the government and work its destruction.” Crimes of the Civil War and the Curse of the Funding System by Henry Clay Dean, published in 1867.
In April of 1865, America, because of its great indebtedness to the international banking cartel, debt incurred to prosecute a war, was no longer the home of freedom or liberty. Few are those who know, or even care for that matter, that the bankers of Europe financed both sides of the war history mistakenly calls the Civil War.
Why would anyone finance both sides in a war you might ask; the answer is obvious: regardless of who wins, the victors and the vanquished become the property of those who hold that debt. In this case, as in every war since, the owners are those known simply as the international banking cartel. Those same folks who own you, your home, your business and all the property you call your own. The only thing they cannot own is your soul, unless you become a worshiper of the entity known as government.
You really don’t have to openly worship government itself as long as government employees are viewed as entities worthy of praise and adoration in your eyes. Just ask yourself: who gathers more of your attention, those who teach the tenets of freedom and liberty or politicians and other “public servants?” If government owns and controls them, by default it owns and controls you.
In order to survey the country the international bankers sought to control, in 1859 they sent one of their own to America to survey the political and economic landscape in order to devise a plan to place this country into total subservience by miring it in oppressive debt which can logically and physically never be repaid.
Remember, the founder of the Bank of London, one William Paterson, said in 1694, “The bank hath benefit of interest on all monies it creates out of nothing.”
The person who came to this country in 1859 was the 24 year-old son of James Mayer de Rothschild, Salomon James de Rothschild, sent by his father to “help advance the families banking interests.” And help those banking interests he did; within 6 short years those banking interests owned this country and its government and continue to this day to do so.
Salomon James kept his family informed of his progress in several letters which described in detail current events occurring in America and how those events could be manipulated in order to gain control of the vast resources our country contained.
Salomon James de Rothschild saw through the character of Abraham Lincoln and also saw the true cause that was bringing this country to the brink of war—and it was not slavery. Lets look at Salomon James’ own words in a letter of Sunday, June 23, 1861:
“Now the struggle has been entered into between the North and the South, a struggle of giants, or rather of boule-dogues, in which no one will yield, and where-in, after months and perhaps years of implacable combat, the two sides will find themselves back at the very place from which started, both of them weakened, with their resources exhausted, their country ruined, and with the best of their blood sacrificed, and with no other result obtained than deepening the abyss between them…
I’ll come back later to the slavery question, which was the first pretext for secession, but which was just a pretext and is now secondary. The true reason which impelled the Southern states to secede is the question of tariffs. The South is simply a producer and consumer; the West and the North, and especially the East are most entirely manufacturers, but they need strong protection. The South could supply itself with all necessary items in Europe, at prices from twenty-five to forty percent lower than they have been paying up to now. It [the South] contends that these duties do it no good and that the money goes back into the pockets of the Northern manufacturers. Therefore it wants to escape from this tax. The suppression of , or even a strong reduction in, these duties would completely ruin the eastern states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, which could not compete with the cheap prices attained by England and even France. Thousands of men would find themselves unemployed and would therefore threaten the well-being and even the very existence of not only of their employers, but even of the merchants and producers in those areas, leading to an imminent danger of social revolution, which the North must avoid at all costs.
The question of tariffs has been discussed in the deliberative assemblies for more than twenty years, and despite the efforts of the South, despite the majority which its supporters in the North gave it, the country has leaned more toward protectionism than toward free trade. Since a Republican president was elected, the South felt its cause was lost, that the encroachments on its principles would become greater and greater each day under the protection of the federal government. It therefore preferred to fight at once rather than be paralyzed by the measures of the president.”
Here, in the words of an observer who sought only to advance the banking interests of his family, we have an unbiased view of the prelude to our Second War for Independence. Those men in Butternut and Gray took to the field of battle for the very same reason those men on Lexington Green stood in the face of the most powerful military on the planet: in defense of their personal freedoms and liberty, the right to consent of the governed and to avoid a crippling form of taxation— the theft of their own labor.
But, there is much more to this story as was revealed in other letters sent from Salomon James de Rothschild to his banking family in Europe. Letters we shall examine further in subsequent offerings on this subject.
