Who's Behind All of the Wars?

George Washington's picture

 

 

Bankers hate peace …

Lee Fang reports:

The possibility of an Iran nuclear deal depressing weapons sales was raised by Myles Walton, an analyst from Germany’s Deutsche Bank, during a Lockheed earnings call this past January 27. Walton asked Marillyn Hewson, the chief executive of Lockheed Martin, if an Iran agreement could “impede what you see as progress in foreign military sales.” Financial industry analysts such as Walton use earnings calls as an opportunity to ask publicly-traded corporations like Lockheed about issues that might harm profitability.

 

Hewson replied that “that really isn’t coming up,” but stressed that “volatility all around the region” should continue to bring in new business. According to Hewson, “A lot of volatility, a lot of instability, a lot of things that are happening” in both the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region means both are “growth areas” for Lockheed Martin.

 

The Deutsche Bank-Lockheed exchange “underscores a longstanding truism of the weapons trade: war — or the threat of war — is good for the arms business,” says William Hartung, director of the Arms & Security Project at the Center for International Policy. Hartung observed that Hewson described the normalization of relations with Iran not as a positive development for the future, but as an “impediment.” “And Hewson’s response,” Hartung adds, “which in essence is ‘don’t worry, there’s plenty of instability to go around,’ shows the perverse incentive structure that is at the heart of the international arms market.”

The President of Stanford University (David Starr Jordan) reported that banksters are the true power behind the throne, and that – for many centuries – they’ve made their fortunes by financing war.

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.

The U.S. Senate’s Special Committee on Investigation of the Munitions Industry found connections between the wartime profits of the banking and munitions industries to America’s involvement in World War I.  Specifically, the Committee  reported that between 1915 and January 1917, the United States lent Germany 27 million dollars, and in the same period, it lent to the United Kingdom and its allies 2.3 billion dollars, almost 100 times as much, and so the US entered the war so that the lenders would get repaid by their biggest debtors: The UK and its allies.

Subsequently, many big banks  funded the Nazis.

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:

 

And they are one of the main sources of financing for nuclear weapons.

(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.)

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.

War Makes Banks Rich

Wars are the fastest way for banks to create more debt … and therefore to make more profit. No wonder they love war.

After all, the banking system is founded upon the counter-intuitive but indisputable fact that banks create loans first, and then create deposits later.

In other words, virtually all money is actually created as debt. For example, in a hearing held on September 30, 1941 in the House Committee on Banking and Currency, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve (Mariner S. Eccles) said:

That is what our money system is. If there were no debts in our money system, there wouldn’t be any money.

And Robert H. Hemphill, Credit Manager of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, said:

If all the bank loans were paid, no one could have a bank deposit, and there would not be a dollar of coin or currency in circulation. This is a staggering thought. We are completely dependent on the commercial Banks. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash or credit. If the Banks create ample synthetic money we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent money system. When one gets a complete grasp of the picture, the tragic absurdity of our hopeless position is almost incredible, but there it is. It is the most important subject intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it becomes widely understood and the defects remedied very soon.

Debt (from the borrower’s perspective) owed to banks is profit and income from the bank’s perspective. In other words, banks are in the business of creating more debt … i.e. finding more people who want to borrow larger sums.

Debt is central to our banking system. Indeed, Federal Reserve chairman Greenspan was so worried that the U.S. would pay off it’s debt, that he suggested tax cuts for the wealthy to increase the debt.

What does this have to do with war?

War is the most efficient debt-creation machine. For starters, wars are very expensive.

For example, Nobel prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz estimated in 2008 that the Iraq war could cost America up to $5 trillion dollars. A study by Brown University’s Watson Institute for International Studies says the Iraq war costs could exceed $6 trillion, when interest payments to the banks are taken into account.

This is nothing new … but has been going on for thousands of years. As a Cambridge University Press treatise on ancient Athens notes:

Financing wars is expensive business, and the scope for initiative was regularly extended by borrowing.

So wars have been a huge – and regular – way for banks to create debt for kings and presidents who want to try to expand their empires.

Major General Smedley Butler – the most decorated Marine in American history – was right when he said:

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

War is also good for banks because a lot of material, equipment, buildings and infrastructure get destroyed in war. So countries go into massive debt to finance war, and then borrow a ton more to rebuild.

The advent of central banks hasn’t changed this formula. Specifically, the big banks (“primary dealers”) loan money to the Fed, and charge interest for the loan.

So when a nation like the U.S. gets into a war, the Fed pumps out money for the war effort based upon loans from the primary dealers, who make a killing in interest payments from the Fed.

War Is Horrible for the American People

Top economists say that war is destroying our economy.  But war is great for the  super-elites … so they want to keep it going.

And America’s never-ending wars are hurting our national security.

Never-ending wars are also destroying our freedom. The Founding Fathers warned against standing armies, saying that they destroy freedom. (update).

Perversely, our government – which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the big banks –  treats anti-war sentiment  – or protest of big banks (and here) – as terrorism.

Excellent piece.

Ohne Deckung's picture

To asses is that the people, making money with money had found out that war is a racket.

Or do you think, war was a racket already before the bankers have token notice and started to explore this niche of doings.

Bankers are spotted who are set by definition of work to make money with whatsoever that is supplying this venture.

Regardless of - you name it.

What makes war to a source of splendid income is the follow-up question. With what kind of commodity we have to deal with.

How come that the offer is inviting so that the money is flocking to the gate of opportunities provided. The money, not only the bankers.

The quest of power, standing for an open end dichotomy of occasions as soon started with.

In order to clarify the said let's suppose another routine is meddling in the process of creating wars those goal it were to teach us not to make business with wars, at all costs.

The business with war all our societies are build upon. Upon systems of enforcement concepts, backed with what is in need to make them running.

You may got itchy with, but, but - didn't we have of that lecture already enough. No need the bankers sell us more cliff hangers.

Enforcement concepts are based on a math poorly developed. That's not wondering because you get it's functioning in one step in which is foreseen no further asks. This overwhelming capacity has proven to run over all other compositions of logic.

Fact is, there are winking still enormous profit advances, you broker sure will be able to tell you more about, turning "the good that bankers do is dwarfed by their evil" in a much brighter scope.

George, why did you pull this article from the front page after only 1 day? Is there any subject more important than this one? Is there any subject more central to our current geopolitical problems? This article should be on the front page, and stay there permanently. Start a movement instead of furthering the chaos and confusion.

Gadfly's picture

It's very simple folks. You must end private central banking. Private central banking places too much money and power in private hands - and too few of them at that. This is the evil behind the curtain, the evil behind the thrown. Private central banking is anti-democratic. In fact, it actively undermines democracy and democratic institutions. There is more than ample evidence to support this glaring fact. Central banking must be put back into the hands and control of the people and democratic institutions. Far better that a national bank, created and chartered to operate in the public interest, exist, than to put this power over life and death in the hands of a few rich and self-interested men.  While it may not eliminate all problems, it will certainly eliminate many of them, including banker's wars and their wars for profit. It will put some checks and balances in place. This is where your efforts and focus should be. This is where your energy should be directed. This is what you should dedicate your political life to - ending private central banking. One person at a time. One candidate at a time. One vote at a time. A movement must be created to end private central banking. A movement must be created to oppose the one world private central banking system that is knocking off country after country to implement its system of financial and political control. Do that and you will eliminate untold suffering. And at the same time you will have left future generations and humanity a great gift.

Niall Of The Nine Hostages's picture

Yes, the bankers financed the Nazis. Think about that next time someone starts babbling about finance being a Jewish plot or Hitler being a great monetary reformer. Hitler was the tool of high finance, as they all were. Europe's Jews were a cost of doing business.

And why did they bankroll the Wolf's war machine after stiffing them on the bill from last time? Among other reasons, because they figured that in any war with the rest of Europe he'd a fair chance of winning. Great War debt was a sunk cost, as they say. 

They don't finance obvious lost causes. Contrast "Ukraine." You, dear taxpayer, are bankrolling Kiev's spat with Russia because no banker will give a thin dime of his own money to Kiev while the junta's survival is at all in doubt.

+1 Niall.... Most people realise that the super-rich run ting.  It is not a question of religion/race/nationality - it's simply a case of richest=most powerful, and goverments fall over themselves to legislate on their behalf.... If any one religion disappeared, the world would still be corrupt and manipulated.  

Ignore the trolls & dis-info agents trying to divide and conquer ZH. [yes you Tony Wilson, Self-enlightenment, etc...]. They have been shown to work for the state to cast dissent amongst those that 'get it'... but can be easily spotted due to their regurgitation of the same memes whatever the article or topic.

 

conscious being's picture

Denial is not a solution or even an effective coping mechanism.

"It is not a question of religion/race/nationality"

True to some extent, but not true for those groups conditioned to form a human-shield around the banksters. Too many people's / group's coping strategy is to aspire to the role of chief boot-licker without realizing they are still on the menu. You are telling Tony to ignore what his "lying" eyes are telling him. The boot-licker response is to extrapolate and distort these genuine observations into "They're coming to kill all the Jews.", which invokes the human-shields for the murdering banksters to hide behind. Better the human-shields take notice of the banksters putting them in this precarious situation in the first place and disassociate, which is not going to happen if Tony, shuts up about it. People at Lockheed, people at the banks, presstitutes in the media are all enablers of bankster crime, but only the Jews have been chosen for the special role of bankster human-shield. Shutting up about it won't make the problem go away. Shining some light on it might.

Standard disclaimer: of course every Jew is not involved. Of course it takes balls for a Jew to break ranks with their assigned bankster human-shield role. I repeatedly try in my posts to acknowledge those who have. People like Mordichai Venunu, Shlomo Sand, Norman Finklestein, Rabbi Michael Lehrner. Of course there are too many more to ennumerate here. Of course many of them are not famous, but have decided to leave the rah rah cheering squad for murderous, Zionist ideology which forms the basis for the human-shield trap they are supposed to be forced into.

Who funded After The Warming fifteen years before An Inconvenient Truth?

Radical Marijuana's picture

Another excellent article, that I agreed with on the level that it was presented. However, while governments are the biggest form of organized crime, which are controlled by the best organized gang of criminals, which happen to currently be the international bankers, there are NO genuine solutions which would not be better organized crime, operating better death controls, in order to back up better debt controls.

In other words, while I totally agreed with the analysis presented in the article above, I do NOT think it goes deep enough to provide better theoretical resolutions to those problems. There needs to be much more significant and profound paradigm shifts to even begin to have some political science which could cope with the paradoxical ways that governments are the biggest form of organized crime, controlled by the best organized criminals. We would need a series of intellectual scientific revolutions in order to come to terms with those apparent paradoxes.

The old-fashioned ways of thinking, using DUALITIES, that promote false fundamental dichotomies and the related impossible ideals, can never do anything but suggest bogus "solutions" which are sure to continue to backfire badly, because they continue to understand the deeper mechanisms backwards! What we should do is start using UNITARY MECHANISMS, which understand human beings and human civilizations an entropic pumps of energy flows. HOWEVER, doing that has to correct a host of profound errors that are now built into the dominant natural languages and philosophy of science.

I repeat some of the basics:

Money is measurement backed by murder.

Private property is backing up claims with coercions.

Human realities are ALWAYS organized lies, operating robberies. There is nothing but the dynamic equilibria of different systems of lies operating robberies. The banksters were the best at being dishonest, and backing that up with violence. However, everyone else lives in the same ways. While the banksters were the predatory parasites, most human beings were living as the productive prey. Most of those who live as the productive prey are adapted to live according to their niches inside the human ecology and political economy, whereby they are able to deliberately ignore the real history that made and maintained the systems that they were always living inside. That deliberate ignorance of the bigger picture was always matched by the banksters, as the dominate predatory parasites, also promoting in public the same morality as the productive prey, while covertly doing things in the opposite manner, according to the principles and methods of organized crime.

Human beings, as soon as we define them as separate from their environment, necessarily live as robbers in their environment. Everyone has some power to rob, and power to kill to back up that power to rob. Governments assembled and channeled those powers to rob and kill. The banksters, as the best organized gang of criminals, were able to persistently apply the methods of organized crime to the political processes in order to capture control over the powers of governments.

After the banksters were able to effectively privatize the public "money" supply, they were able to reinvest the profits from frauds in more frauds, which have been heading more and more towards effectively privatizing the public murder systems. Since civilization consists of almost nothing but organized crime, surrounded by more or less controlled opposition groups, that has become more and more unbalanced, due to most people being better and better brainwashed to believe in the biggest bullies' bullshit world view. Indeed, the controlled opposition groups STAY WITHIN the bullies' bullshit world view, especially since they tend to not know, and do not want to know, the degree to which their way of thinking is controlled by using the banksters' language.

IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO COMMUNICATE MORE RADICAL TRUTHS USING THE DOMINANT NATURAL LANGUAGES AND PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE.

But nevertheless, I will again try to point out that all of the popular, so-called "solutions" to the political problems presented in the article above tend to be backwards, because all those bogus "solutions" are being proposed WITHIN the same frame of reference, which presumes taking DUALITIES for granted, and therefore, goes from the correct analysis that the government is the biggest form of organized crime, controlled by the best organized gang of criminals, to then collapse inane "solutions" that go back to impossible ideals, which will continue to cause the opposite happen, because the mechanisms are still understood backwards.

The basic PROBLEMS are perpetual chronic ones inherent in the nature of life. There was no beginning to living beings acting as entropic pumps of energy flows. There was no beginning to the biggest bullies' bullshit promoting backward views of everything, which grew at an exponential rate through the history of civilization. Governments were ALWAYS military organizations, that emerged through the history of warfare, which was organized crime on larger and larger scales. The banksters were the most recent wave of the best organized criminals, that were able to apply the principles and methods of organized crime to the political processes. The ruling classes also waged war against the consciousness of those they ruled over, so that there ended up being almost nothing but organized crime, surrounded by controlled opposition, which BOTH spouted the same basic bullies' bullshit world view.

In order to enable a greater use of information and higher consciousness about those problems, enough people would have to understand that, as citizens, they are members of an organized crime gang, called their country. Realistically speaking, they would be engaged in attempting to change the dynamic equilibria between the different systems of organized lies operating robberies, because, realistically speaking, those are the only things that actually exist.

In the background to the ways that the established systems are DEBT SLAVERY BACKED BY WARS BASED ON DECEITS are the basic facts that human beings operate as entropic pumps of energy flows, which have deliberately misunderstood the concept of entropy backwards. Similarly, almost the only publicly significant opposition to the core of the current forms of organized crime, i.e., bankster controlled governments, are controlled opposition groups, which continue to promote bogus "solutions" based on the SAME false fundamental dichotomies and impossible ideals that the banksters originally developed, in order to enable them to be better professional liars and immaculate hypocrites, or wolves in sheep's clothing teaching the sheep to bleat their moralities.

IF the human species is going to survive the growing Grand Canyon Chasm opening up between progress in physical science, SO FAR, WITHOUT matching progress in political science, then the human species is going to have to go through even more profound paradigm shifts in the ways that political problems are perceived, than the paradigm shifts in physical sciences which have already been achieved. More than anything else, it is the existence of weapons of mass destruction that makes that transformation imperative ... although, there are almost no indications that enough people are willing and able to face the facts that the death control systems must and will be changed, one way or another, sooner or later, by developing weapons of mass destruction ... since, so far, barely anything has changed, other than the established systems of MAD Money As Debt, backed by MAD Mutual Assured Destruction, getting bigger and BIGGER at an exponential rate!

I REPEAT:

MONEY IS MEASUREMENT BACKED BY MURDER.

So, OF COURSE, wars, for at least several Centuries, have been the banksters' wars. However, the only genuine solutions for those problems must necessarily be better death control systems. As long as we continue to have something less than 0.000001% of the population understand and agree with that, then the extremely unbalanced dynamic equilibria between the different systems of organized lies operating robberies will continue to get way more unbalanced. Indeed, the most probable futures are for the runaway debt insanities to provoke runaway death insanities.

The same old social pyramid systems, based on some people being able to control other people by backing up lies with violence became the current systems of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, which have, during the lifetime of those still alive now become the current systems of globalized electronic monkey money frauds, backed up by the threat of force from apes with atomic bombs. By and large, less than 0.000001% of the population appears willing and able to understand the astronomically amplified SIZE or those political problems, which have become trillions of times BIGGER than ever before in human history. The progress in physical sciences have prepared the way for progress in political science. However, all of the old-fashioned religions ideologies would have to be radically transformed in order to do that!

In my view, the banksters have lost control of the systems that they originally made and maintained ... NOBODY is in control anymore, because NOBODY actually understands what pumping up social pyramid systems with powers that are trillions of times more capable means ... Instead, our civilization has become runaway criminal insanities, due to the ability to back up lies with violence, or enforce frauds, NOT keeping up with the understanding of the purposes for doing that!

After studying these issues for a long time, I was already well-aware of all the points made in the article above. However, my criticisms are not about the revelations regarding those social facts, on the superficial level at which those are correct. Rather, my criticisms are regarding the organizing paradigms of political presumptions, that are implicit in any resolutions of those problems in the future. Therefore, I attempt to combine better recognition of those social facts with a deeper and more systematic understand of how and why those became the existing facts.

My conclusions are as I outlined above: the only genuine solutions to those problems require better organized crime, to control a better government, and the central features of that must be better death control systems. Those MIGHT emerge from the on-coming social storms, when the established systems drive their debt insanities through to provoke death insanities.  However, since the banksters systems were behind the wars, civil wars, as well as controlled opposition revolutions, for several Centuries, therefore, they are also now behind the trends towards the human species committing collective suicide through some world war going out of control, resulting in runaway uses of weapons of mass destruction.

That is the context in which we are looking at runaway death insanities developing in the foreseeable future. Moreover, just more "business as usual" is headed in the same direct, only not as fast as a more sudden world war going out of control would more quickly do. I REPEAT, the BASIC PROBLEM is progress in physical sciences WITHOUT progress in political science. Only resolving that contradiction better might enable resolving the problems within social pyramid systems better. The banksters are doing the same old BACK UP LIES WITH VIOLENCE routines now that Neolithic Civilizations have been doing for thousands of years. However, progress in physical sciences has made the banksters' abilities to enforce frauds become orders of magnitude more criminally insane than ever before in human history.

At the same time, natural selection always existed, and still exists, and therefore, human cultural systems of artificial selection have always existed and must necessarily exist, which essentially means that there must be some death control systems, with the murder systems as the most extreme forms, which in turn then back up the monetary systems, which then pay for, and thus control, those murder systems in return. The only genuine resolutions to the problems that wars have become the banksters' wars, or that "war is a racket," or that "war is the harvest of the bankers," are to develop radically different militarism, that operates different death control systems, with the most extreme form of that being different murder systems.

There is NO point in merely revealing how the banksters operate their deceitful death controls, to back up their debt controls, unless one proposes how to develop better organized systems which will accomplish the same overall necessary goals in better ways. IF there ever emerges enough real opposition, which organized enough resistance to change the path of least resistance, then that would have become a new form of government. So far, there is nothing like that which is publicly significant. Rather, AROUND AND AROUND WE GO, STUCK IN THE SAME OLD RUTS, (LIKE MY DISCOURSE FOLLOWS) where the only publicly significant opposition is controlled, so that it continues to promote the same old bullshit, based on false fundamental dichotomies, and the related impossible ideals, which will continue to backfire badly, and cause the opposite to happen, because all of those kinds of controlled opposition groups continue to understand the mechanisms backwards.

From a sublime point of view, human beings already operate as entropic pumps of energy flows, through which energy is conserved. There are already UNITARY MECHANISMS that have made and maintained the world to be the way that it is now. The banksters were the best organized gang of criminals, that were able to apply the methods of organized crime to control governments. HOWEVER, the only genuine solutions are to do what the banksters did better than they are doing ... Ideally, that requires greater use of information, enabling higher consciousness, regarding how the human artificial selection systems operate within the context of the natural selection systems.

You need to read"The Web of Debt" by Ellen Brown. 

Radical Marijuana's picture

I consider Ellen Brown to be one of the most brilliant monetary "reformers." I admire her work, which is theoretically possible and relatively practical. However, I believe we are headed towards the established systems' madness NOT allowing any "reforms," but rather, driving things through some significant degree of collapses into chaos, which may then allow some monetary "revolutions" to happen ???

rex-lacrymarum's picture

Ellen Brown is the modern-day incarnation of the "greenbackers" of yore. Her proposals for the monetary system and the economy are essentially copied from Hitler (you can even find her ravings about how great the Nazi economy was in her book). Note here that I am definitely not a supporter of the current monetary system, but if you're a fan of Brown, you really need to take your blinders off. She wants even more statism than we have now.

oh and let us not forget Herman Josef Abs of Deutsche Bank who liaised very closely with Himmler and Hitler in terms of which assets they wanted in conquered territories and which Jewish assets could be expropriated, but also British, Polish, Belgian

You forgot to mention how Fritz Thyssen had his assets transferred out of Germany into Dutch companies so he could preserve his wealth and resume business post-1946. Which banks facilitated that ?

GW must read Micheal Rivero.

What REALLY happened?

 

"ALL WARS ARE BANKER'S WARS"

http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/allwarsarebankerwars.php#axzz3...

Ask Micheal. He posted his article several years ago...

If ZH (under the nome de plume of 'George Washington's Blog') reposts stuff like this, it's a sign that things are about to go HOT.

If you don't get it, here's your sign:

I have no idea what you're trying to say ...

Of course I read What Really Happened.  Michael Rivero has re-posted previous stories where I used his title "All Wars Are Bankers Wars", and where I embedded his video in the post.

Indeed, Mike reposted THIS piece!

It's SYNERGISTIC.

Give due credit, where credit is due.

If everyone on ZH read "The Lost Science Of Money" by Stephen A. Zarlenga, it would be very clear who has been behind all the wars since late 1600's..... the bankers. They loan "money", via creating debt, to both sides in every war. Just think carefully about the current conflict in Saudi Arabia/Yemen. It is being fought with weapons delivered to both sides by the USA. All those weapons are bought and paid for by the United States government, with funding running through the Federal Reserve. Can it be any clearer??? This is only the most recent war episode. The beauty of this evil scheme is: the "winners" of these conflicts gladly pay back the created "debt", while the "loser's" share is extracted by the "winner's" going back into the banker's pockets. A perfect never-ending cycle.

MontgomeryScott's picture

If everyone on ZH had manned up and gotten the balls to forment an armed rebellion against these scum (when they had seen the issues and still had the opportunity to), this question of 'reading' some 'book' would be a moot point.

BETTER STILL: If everone who reads ZH had taken up arms against these bankster scum before they had gotten the political and financial support to carry out their growth, like the vermin that ravage the host body, this simple discussion would not need to take place; and the world as a whole would NOT be such an evil place as it is now.

It's a matter of 'Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda'.

NOW, that it is OVERWHELMING the last hold-outs, what ACTIONS would you suggest? Read a BOOK, perhaps?

Try 'The Creature From Jeckyl Island', or something.

So let's get this straight.  Bankers are behind every war, and the solution is to bring war to the bankers.  So what bankers would be behind such a war?  And would the motivation behind such a war be to eradicate the destitution brought about by war?

...and the world as a whole would NOT be such an evil place as it is now.

Hate to break it to you, but man's intrinsic, self-serving nature does not ebb and flow with temporal circumstances.  Eradicate all of the bankers, and you will only supplant one evil with another.  Because war starts from within, not between, men.  Except for you, of course - you want to bring war to the bankers out of your intrinsic "goodness".

Interesting...

It turns out that the Hemphill quote is from an Introduction he wrote to a 1934 book by Irving Fisher, called 100% Money and the Public Debt.

"Irving Fisher was one of America's greatest mathematical economists and one of the clearest economics writers of all time. He had the intellect to use mathematics in virtually all his theories after he had clearly explained the central principles in his own words.

"Fisher demanded that Congress take back its Constitutional money power that had been usurped by the commercial banks. He suggested that the public debt be redeemed under the Congressional money power withtout inflationary results.

"His '100 percent money' system required that demand deposits be backed 100 percent by federal funds rather than fractional or no reserves, on grounds that such a policy would prevent bank failures and control large business cycles ('booms and recessions')..."

rex-lacrymarum's picture

Mathematics should have no place in economic theorizing. All of modern mainstream economics is unfortunatley like a small layer of dust on Fisherite economics. However, economic theory belongs to the social sciences, not the natural ones. It discusses human beings and their actions. You can describe the flight path of a rock that has been thrown mathematically, because the rock has no volition, no purpose and cannot change its mind. Human beings are not inanimate objects lacking volition and purpose. Once one admits mathematical economics into the canon of economic science, one implicitly accepts the possibility of central economic planning. Which as it were, is precisely where we find ourselves today. For some reason, economists began to suffer from physics envy and tried to ape the empirical natural sciences in economics. 

As to Fisher's opposition to fractional reserve banking, yes, FRB should be opposed. But note what Fisher really proposed: he was not trying to eradicate inflationary monetary policy - he simply wanted the central bank to control every aspect of the money creation process. He was a firm believer in central planning. His proposal's main aim was to increase the degree of state-controlled central planning in the economy.
