Bankers are Behind the Wars

Former managing director of Goldman Sachs – and head of the international analytics group at Bear Stearns in London (Nomi Prins) -  notes:

Throughout the century that I examined, which began with the Panic of 1907 … what I found by accessing the archives of each president is that through many events and periods, particular bankers were in constant communication [with the White House] — not just about financial and economic policy, and by extension trade policy, but also about aspects of World War I, or World War II, or the Cold War, in terms of the expansion that America was undergoing as a superpower in the world, politically, buoyed by the financial expansion of the banking community.

 

***

 

In the beginning of World War I, Woodrow Wilson had adopted initially a policy of neutrality. But the Morgan Bank, which was the most powerful bank at the time, and which wound up funding over 75 percent of the financing for the allied forces during World War I … pushed Wilson out of neutrality sooner than he might have done, because of their desire to be involved on one side of the war.

 

Now, on the other side of that war, for example, was the National City Bank, which, though they worked with Morgan in financing the French and the British, they also didn’t have a problem working with financing some things on the German side, as did Chase

 

When Eisenhower became president … the U.S. was undergoing this expansion by providing, under his doctrine, military aid and support to countries [under] the so-called threat of being taken over by communism … What bankers did was they opened up hubs, in areas such as Cuba, in areas such as Beirut and Lebanon, where the U.S. also wanted to gain a stronghold in their Cold War fight against the Soviet Union. And so the juxtaposition of finance and foreign policy were very much aligned.

 

So in the ‘70s, it became less aligned, because though America was pursuing foreign policy initiatives in terms of expansion, the bankers found oil, and they made an extreme effort to activate relationships in the Middle East, that then the U.S. government followed. For example, in Saudi Arabia and so forth, they get access to oil money, and then recycle it into Latin American debt and other forms of lending throughout the globe. So that situation led the U.S. government.

Indeed, JP Morgan also purchased control over America’s leading 25 newspapers in order to propagandize US public opinion in favor of US entry into World War 1.

And many big banks did, in fact, fund the Nazis.

The BBC reported in 1998:

Barclays Bank has agreed to pay $3.6m to Jews whose assets were seized from French branches of the British-based bank during World War II.

 

***

 

Chase Manhattan Bank, which has acknowledged seizing about 100 accounts held by Jews in its Paris branch during World War II ….”Recently unclassified reports from the US Treasury about the activities of Chase in Paris in the 1940s indicate that the local branch worked “in close collaboration with the German authorities” in freezing Jewish assets.

The New York Daily News noted the same year:

The relationship between Chase and the Nazis apparently was so cozy that Carlos Niedermann, the Chase branch chief in Paris, wrote his supervisor in Manhattan that the bank enjoyed “very special esteem” with top German officials and “a rapid expansion of deposits,” according to Newsweek.

 

Niedermann’s letter was written in May 1942 five months after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor and the U.S. also went to war with Germany.

The BBC reported in 1999:

A French government commission, investigating the seizure of Jewish bank accounts during the Second World War, says five American banks Chase Manhattan, J.P Morgan, Guaranty Trust Co. of New York, Bank of the City of New York and American Express had taken part.

 

It says their Paris branches handed over to the Nazi occupiers about one-hundred such accounts.

One of Britain’s main newspapers – the Guardian – reported in 2004:

George Bush’s grandfather [and George H.W. Bush's father], the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.

 

The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.

 

His business dealings … continued until his company’s assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act

 

***

 

The documents reveal that the firm he worked for, Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH), acted as a US base for the German industrialist, Fritz Thyssen, who helped finance Hitler in the 1930s before falling out with him at the end of the decade. The Guardian has seen evidence that shows Bush was the director of the New York-based Union Banking Corporation (UBC) that represented Thyssen’s US interests and he continued to work for the bank after America entered the war.

 

***

 

Bush was a founding member of the bank [UBC] … The bank was set up by Harriman and Bush’s father-in-law to provide a US bank for the Thyssens, Germany’s most powerful industrial family.

 

***

 

By the late 1930s, Brown Brothers Harriman, which claimed to be the world’s largest private investment bank, and UBC had bought and shipped millions of dollars of gold, fuel, steel, coal and US treasury bonds to Germany, both feeding and financing Hitler’s build-up to war.

 

Between 1931 and 1933 UBC bought more than $8m worth of gold, of which $3m was shipped abroad. According to documents seen by the Guardian, after UBC was set up it transferred $2m to BBH accounts and between 1924 and 1940 the assets of UBC hovered around $3m, dropping to $1m only on a few occasions.

 

***

 

UBC was caught red-handed operating a American shell company for the Thyssen family eight months after America had entered the war and that this was the bank that had partly financed Hitler’s rise to power.

Indeed, banks often finance both sides of wars:

 

(The San Francisco Chronicle also documents that leading financiers Rockefeller, Carnegie and Harriman also funded Nazi eugenics programs … but that’s a story for another day.)

After all, wars are the fastest way for banks to create more debt ... and therefore to make more profit.  No wonder they love war.

The Federal Reserve and other central banks also help to start wars by financing them.  Thomas Jefferson and the father of free market capitalism, Adam Smith, both noted that the financing wars by banks led to more – and longer – wars.

And America apparently considers economic rivalry to be a basis for war, and is using the military to contain China’s growing economic influence.

Multi-billionaire investor Hugo Salinas Price says:

What happened to [Libya's] Mr. Gaddafi, many speculate the real reason he was ousted was that he was planning an all-African currency for conducting trade. The same thing happened to him that happened to Saddam because the US doesn’t want any solid competing currency out there vs the dollar. You know Gaddafi was talking about a gold dinar.

Senior CNBC editor John Carney noted:

Is this the first time a revolutionary group has created a central bank while it is still in the midst of fighting the entrenched political power? It certainly seems to indicate how extraordinarily powerful central bankers have become in our era.

 

Robert Wenzel of Economic Policy Journal thinks the central banking initiative reveals that foreign powers may have a strong influence over the rebels.

 

This suggests we have a bit more than a ragtag bunch of rebels running around and that there are some pretty sophisticated influences. “I have never before heard of a central bank being created in just a matter of weeks out of a popular uprising,” Wenzel writes.

Indeed, many claim that recent wars have really been about bringing all countries into the fold of Western central banking, and that the wars against Middle Eastern countries are really about forcing them into the dollar and private central banking.

The most decorated American military man in history said that war is a racket, and noted:

Let us not forget the bankers who financed the great war. If anyone had the cream of the profits it was the bankers.

The big banks have also been laundering money for terrorists. The big bank employee who blew the whistle on the banks’ money laundering for terrorists and drug cartels says that the giant bank is still aiding terrorists, saying:

The public needs to know that money is still being funneled through HSBC to directly buy guns and bullets to kill our soldiers …. Banks financing … terrorists affects every single American.

He also said:

It is disgusting that our banks are STILL financing terror on 9/11 2013.

And see this.

According to the BBC and other sources, Prescott Bush, JP Morgan and other leading financiers also funded a coup against President Franklin Roosevelt in an attempt – basically – to implement fascism in the U.S. See this, this, this and this.

Kevin Zeese writes:

Americans are recognizing the link between the military-industrial complex and the Wall Street oligarchs—a connection that goes back to the beginning of the modern U.S. empire. Banks have always profited from war because the debt created by banks results in ongoing war profit for big finance; and because wars have been used to open countries to U.S. corporate and banking interests. Secretary of State, William Jennings Bryan wrote: “the large banking interests were deeply interested in the world war because of the wide opportunities for large profits.”

 

Many historians now recognize that a hidden history for U.S. entry into World War I was to protect U.S. investors. U.S. commercial interests had invested heavily in European allies before the war: “By 1915, American neutrality was being criticized as bankers and merchants began to loan money and offer credits to the warring parties, although the Central Powers received far less. Between 1915 and April 1917, the Allies received 85 times the amount loaned to Germany.” The total dollars loaned to all Allied borrowers during this period was $2,581,300,000. The bankers saw that if Germany won, their loans to European allies would not be repaid. The leading U.S. banker of the era, J.P. Morgan and his associates did everything they could to push the United States into the war on the side of England and France. Morgan said: “We agreed that we should do all that was lawfully in our power to help the Allies win the war as soon as possible.” President Woodrow Wilson, who campaigned saying he would keep the United States out of war, seems to have entered the war to protect U.S. banks’ investments in Europe.

 

The most decorated Marine in history, Smedley Butler, described fighting for U.S. banks in many of the wars he fought in. He said: “I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”

 

In Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, John Perkins describes how World Bank and IMF loans are used to generate profits for U.S. business and saddle countries with huge debts that allow the United States to control them. It is not surprising that former civilian military leaders like Robert McNamara and Paul Wolfowitz went on to head the World Bank. These nations’ debt to international banks ensures they are controlled by the United States, which pressures them into joining the “coalition of the willing” that helped invade Iraq or allowing U.S. military bases on their land. If countries refuse to “honor” their debts, the CIA or Department of Defense enforces U.S. political will through coups or military action.

More and more people are indeed seeing the connection between corporate banksterism and militarism ….

Indeed, all wars are bankers’ wars.

Why doesn't someone just stand up and say it?  The international bankers are our enemies.  They impoverish us, lead us into wars, and destroy our democracies.  Why do we let them rule us?

I know why.  We are comfortable, even with our enslavement.  We prefer a known status quo to a scary future, even if the status quo is unsustainable.  And we are dim, pathetically dim.

They could be defeated.  They are not Chronus and they are definitely not doing God's work.

"... and by extension trade policy, but also about aspects of World War I, ..."

So how does it come to pass that ol' WW, he of "too proud to fight" (pussy) fame gets tarred with the banksta' connection?  Just wondering, because a root cause solution might be to do something with certain graduates of certain institutions.

Of course, that would also be War against the Weak and therefore intolerable.

What Washington/banksters hate about Iran is that Iran is a religious Muslim nation and therefore Sharia banking is subject to Sharia Muslim law.

Your Sharia banker follows strict non-usury banking laws and prays to his God to pay interest and not to be tempted to steal your money.

The western multinational Banking/Big Oil/Military Complex conglomerate hate competition. If I had to choose between a Sharia bank and a criminal bank, I would choose to deposit my money with the honest bank.

Do not believe the hate propaganda against (Muslim) Sharia banking.

bankers are out in front of the wars, its their policies which acerbate nationalism, and competition. (see the Bankers Arab Spring) the decision to bankroll CHINA was another story altogether. in most ways that decision has been a failure, but only in the present tense. it did create a new Cold War between China and the US, at least militarily, and the centralized government of China is not going to hold power forever, but the wall street jakylls must wonder why China hasnt' devoved into anarchy yet? in part because of US technology! oi vey! to paraphrase the boys in southpark, i think we've learned something here today...

Viewing 9/11 live tv broadcast I don't see any airplane debris, no leftover landing gear, no jet engines, no seats, no wing parts, no human remains, no black orange bocks, no nothing.

"I can think of no good reason...."

Naaaah, you are missing the point --- you are missing the Big Picture --- the point is for you and others to focus, to concentrate on the arbitrary stuff (was it a plane or missile, etc.) not on the important stuff as who died in the Pentagon, who died aboard those four airliners that day.

Just as with the arguments about the collapse of the Twin Towers (the basic point is always, what happened to compound resistance, how could all three buildings collapse in a steady state manner, which only happens with controlled demolitions) instead of what companies were situated at the points of impact, and what their computer centers and communications centers were involved in leading up to the events of 9/11/01.

Focus, please.

We need to stop fighting the paycheck morons and government thugs and mercenaries. There are thousands and thousands of us and just a few of the bureaucratic and judicial thugs that drive and empower those bastards.

Lone wolves and tight, trusted groups of two or three patriots would sow chaos and fear among those Kenyan-appointed crooks and criminal sociopaths that lead any of those rogue agencies (all of them). Until we get it through our heads that this U.S. Government is the greatest danger to our freedoms and national sovereignty the American People have ever faced then we don't have a chance. Using the instruments of this government to try to fix this lawless mess is a long, lost, cause.

This neo-con bankster military, with trillions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of troops couldn't even subdue the dedicated stone-age guerillas of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

It only took 5% of the population of the original 13 colonies to defeat the mighty British army in the first revolution.

With a population of over 300 million people in the U.S. Just 1% of the population would field a guerilla force of 3 million well-armed dedicated patriots. Operating in tight, trusted groups of 2 or 3 people, or as lone wolfs, the neo-con, bankster fascist politocos, judicial degenerates, and their paycheck thugs wouldn't be able to protect either themselves or their families.

The U.S. Government is no longer the constitutionally-controlled entity created by our founders, it is a lawless entity intent upon murdering murdering millions of Americans and eliminating our national sovereignty. The U.S. government is at war with the American people. Until we get this through our government-dependent skulls, we are doomed.......we are about to be encamped, re-educated/indoctrinated and/or exterminated.

The next false-flag attack on the U.S., will again be orchestrated by U.S. Government black ops and their seeded muscum terrorists. It will be far more devastating than the 9-11 fiasco. An EMP attack will leave us unable to feed and support more than 30% to 40% of our population. We will self-destruct and there will be nobody on earth that could or would help us. The Ebonic, and Islamic, and drug-funded Plagues that have been seeded into our urban centers will flood out across the nation in an unabatable mass-murderous rampage.

All of these pieces of the plan are already readied and in place. One executive order could take down our nation overnight. Incurable, horrific, biological weapons are in storage in U.S. Government bunkers and laboratories in quantities that could radically reduce the existing population of the entire world. One man, whose real identity is unknown to the vast majority of the world, one phone call, one executive order, could quickly finish his planned destruction of the USA.

It is difficult for most of us to comprehend that anybody would be that evil, but make no mistake, this is the culmination of a plan that has been carried out for more than a century. The demons behind this plan have already murdered, maimed, and destroyed hundreds of millions of human beings in the execution of this plan over the past centuries. They will not be stopped now.

Time is very short. Don't look for some national political savior to rise to the top of the current political cesspool and save us all from this evil. Those who rise to the top of this political cesspool are just the biggest turd in the cesspool.

It will take individuals, with 2 or 3 close like-minded friends, with the balls to get up off the couch and move away from their computers, to take up their weapons and go hunting sociopaths, hunting their paycheck thugs, and hunting their families. This is not a fight for gentlemen, ladies, pansies, and wimps. This is a fight for smart, dedicated patriots who know what is happening and how to stop this ongoing sociopathic evil dead in its tracks.......and who can keep their mouths shut.

If you cannot do what is necessary to save our nation, then sit back down, stuff some GMO government grub into your face and breathe whatever the government is spraying into the air to keep you docile and brain-dead.

that perform based on those manipulated rates.
the banks that set the rates are also party to the
spoils of those securities. abandon all hope ye who
enter here. aka how to take over the world.
" to wit...
"...Why would keeping interest rates low enrich the rate-setting banks? Don’t they make more money if interest rates are high?
The answer is no. Unlike most banks, they make most of their money not from ordinary commercial loans but from interest rate swaps. The FDIC suit seeks to recover losses caused to 38 US banking institutions that did make their profits from ordinary business and consumer loans – banks that failed during the financial crisis and were taken over by the FDIC." ..e.b.

If you want to understand how to fix the current problem, then just read Frank Herbert's DUNE.

IT IS PRETTY MUCH THAT SIMPLE!

You can easliy see Jamie and Lloyd turning themselves into Herbert's Titans: their brains encased in nutrients, installed in huge robots with weapons of mass destruction.  I just finished The Butlerian Jihad, and it's many resemblances to the current times we are in....

imo, the best book about this subject is "War is a Racket" by Brigadier General Smedley Butler. Apparently the US army still relays stories about this legendary general to army recruits sans the truth that General Butler revealed about wars in this book being financed by bankers and Wall Street in the name of profits.

For even more insight on how bankers and other multinational American corporations profited from the meddling from the World Bank and the IMF, read The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein.

Sweet Jaysus, reading Naomi Klein is about as sanitized as one can get --- does Klein ever mention in her book focusing on the University of Chicago boys, that the Rockefeller family financed the University of Chicago?  No, of course not.

Puhhlease, pay attention to economists like Michael Hudson, Michael Perelman, financial journalists like Nomi Prins, Pam Martens and Matt Taibbi.

History and banking must include the Jews. Yet the courts will "deal" with anti- Semetic anything.

http://www.iamthewitness.com/books/Andrew.Carrington.Hitchcock/The.History.of.the.Money.Changers.htm

Christians were not allowerd to profit, charge interest on loans...."Usary"

Being of the Jewish faith....didn't have to follow this rule so they became the money changers and over time they got good, Very good at the controls.

Maybe when the Courts investigate the truth.....the truth will be released to the public.  Maybe before the next war? Both side have beed affected and still are..................Guillitine or noose.........now that would be a Vote....

Now I'll wait to see how long before I'm no longer allowed to post.

But as a sideline....don't let your family die for Bankers Profits.......

Well i may not be a banker elite or "superior" to anyone else...

but i know this:

Had the braniacs spent the last few hundred years trying to improve humanity rather than trying to control and destroy it...

they would all be alot better off today. Imagine the wonders that we dont have and can never have under their leadership as they are blind to everything because they are ruled by fear, greed and hate.  

our current path is the result of no intelligence, not greater intelligence. Inferiority, not superiority. Paranoia, not vision, fear not love. Whether you conqeuor the world of not doesnt matter because of the way you chose to do it. What makes us different from the animals is our ability to choose. 

feel free to rejoin humanity anytime you want. We will take you back when you change your evil ways. Weve been waiting for you for so long now......

Anyone ever see the media getting behind having the jewish Bolsheviks repay the Russian people for the trillion or so they stole?

Read "History's Greatest Heist" for more info on what they stole.
