e all know some individuals who are so obviously good and kind that we are certain if anyone were to dislike them, that’s all we would need to know about the person. We would immediately assume he or she is a bad person. To hate the manifestly good is a sure sign of being bad.
Such is the case regarding the Left’s hatred of the Salvation Army. You don’t have to be a Christian—I am not—to appreciate the goodness of the people who run and work for the Salvation Army. They devote their lives to helping the poorest, the saddest, the loneliest and the most troubled among us—completely irrespective of race, gender, transgender identity, faith or no faith. And they do it for almost no money. They do it because of their Christian faith.
They provide these downtrodden people with not only food and shelter but also human warmth and love. And they offer the people they care for the one thing most likely to get them out of their predicament: meaning. They offer it; they do not coerce it. And while the vehicle for this meaning—Christian faith—may not be your faith or mine, so what? It takes a truly narrow-minded bigot to want to deprive people of meaning just because that meaning is rooted in faith or in a faith other than their own.
Yet, leftists—most especially LGBTQ groups, which spread a remarkable amount of hate in the name of “love”—seek to crush the Salvation Army. They threaten and pressure whoever supports the Salvation Army.
“British pop singer Ellie Goulding,” the Wall Street Journal recently reported, “threatened to cancel an appearance at the Dallas Cowboys’ Thanksgiving halftime show, which will celebrate the army’s red-kettle campaign, unless it made a ‘pledge or donation to the LGBTQ community.’ She backed down after the Salvation Army assured her it serves needy members of that community.”
Most depressing of all, Chick-fil-A, a business owned by a Christian and heretofore run according to Christian principles, caved in to LGBTQ organizations’ pressure and stopped funding the Salvation Army, while it has also donated to a left-wing group that hates the good, the Southern Poverty Law Center.
I never thought I’d see the day when the Salvation Army would be hated by a substantial number of Americans or lose the support of a Christian-run business.
But given the Left’s loathing of virtually all things good—such as America, Israel, traditional Christianity and Judaism, the Boy Scouts, the nuclear-family ideal, Thanksgiving and America’s Founders—it is not surprising.
As I have said for years, the Left destroys everything it touches: music, art, Christianity, Judaism, economies, universities, high schools, late-night comedy, pro football, women’s likelihood of finding happiness, men’s likelihood of maturing, the Boy Scouts and the innocence of children (think “Drag Queen Story Hour” for 5-year-olds at public libraries), to cite some of the more obvious examples.
And while it destroys good institutions, the Left never builds a viable replacement. Is there a left-wing equivalent to the Boy Scouts, a left-wing institution that helps mold boys into responsible men? Of course not. The Left destroys, but it builds nothing—except state power. Or, to take the present example, is there a left-wing equivalent to the Salvation Army? No, there isn’t.
“We believe we are the largest provider of poverty relief to the LGBTQ+ population,” the Salvation Army said in a statement after Chick-fil-A announced its decision. As the Wall Street Journal concluded, “Considering it serves nearly 25 million people every year, that’s likely true.”
But all the good the Salvation Army does means nothing to the Left. The Left judges people or institutions not by their behavior but by their beliefs. And the Salvation Army believes—as has every civilization in recorded history, and as former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton did until a few years ago—that marriage should be defined as the union of a man and a woman. To the Left, that belief outweighs helping 25 million people, including married gays.
One of the great puzzles in contemporary American life is whether there is anything
the Left could do to make Americans understand how destructive it is. If suppressing free speech at colleges and on the internet, fomenting interracial anger, supporting those who wish to annihilate Israel, allowing (and even encouraging) teenage girls to have their healthy breasts surgically removed if they think they are a boy and trying to crush the Salvation Army don’t do it, probably nothing will.
Adam Schiff illegally subpoenaed call logs of Giuliani and Devin Nunes in fake impeachment hearing conservatives voice outrage
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said cell phone records obtained by impeachment investigators show “considerable coordination” among White House officials who Democrats believe tried to bribe Ukraine government officials into investigating Joe Biden and Democrats.
A 300-page impeachment report issued Tuesday afternoon includes records of calls between President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and White House officials.
The article goes on to state the following:
Schiff said the calls mirrored the impeachment inquiry’s determination that the Trump administration coordinated to bribe Ukraine into investigating Trump’s political opponents by dangling $391 million in security aid.
AT&T likely reportedly provided the cell phone records under subpoena, the article states.
Schiff declared there is more investigative work ahead. “One of the issues we are looking into is, did this scheme begin far earlier than we understood. That is something we continue to investigate, and that is something these phone records also shed light on,” he said.
Records about several private calls between Giuliani and Rep. Devin Nunes in April are included in the report.
Conservatives are responding in outrage, asking if this is even legal for Schiff to obtain phone records.
Benny Johnson of Turning Point USA tweeted, “Adam Schiff obtained Rudy Giuliani’s phone records from AT&T. Since an Impeachment Inquiry isn’t a Criminal Investigation was this Legal? If this is Legal, why havent Republicans requested Schiff & his staff’s records to find out about his communications with the Whistleblower?”
Schiff said at the press briefing Tuesday afternoon, “I’m going to continue to reserve judgement” on impeachment. “We will send that charlatan in the White House back to the golden throne he came from,” he declared.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) relied on the mainstream Marxist media to carry his water for him. He must’ve missed (or dismissed) the poll that revealed voters are madder at the media than they are at President Trump. By a wide margin.
You can be sure the editors at the, IMHO, increasingly discredited major media outlets didn’t miss that poll that shows 61% are disgusted with their biased coverage.
Schiff foolishly trusted that whatever he represented to the media would be repeated without question. And, while the media largely supported his lies, someone at the NY Times either didn’t receive the memo (speculation/joke) or decided that printing the truth had become more important to their long-term credibility.
Why DID SCHIFF lie about having contact with the “whistleblower?”
U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), Ranking Member of the HouseIntelligence Committee conclude that, “In light of this news, it’s hard to view impeachment as anything aside from an orchestrated farce.”
I do not see how Schiff gets out of this one still standing. I see a resignation in his future. Time will tell.
Rep. Ilhan Omar was accused of being recruited by a foreign government in testimony presented in a Florida court.
The Minnesota Democrat was allegedly recruited and funded by Qatar and “passed sensitive information through intermediates to Iran,” according to a report in The Jerusalem Post which has sparked a debate about the credibility of the information.
A spokesperson for Omar, a Somali refugee and one of the first two Muslims – along with Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan – to be elected to Congress, slammed the “outlandishly absurd story” as false. But the testimony was reportedly given in the trial of Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad al-Thani, a brother of the Qatari emir, who is accused of holding an American citizen hostage and ordering his bodyguard to kill two people.
The deposition by Canadian businessman Alan Bender, who was born in Kuwait, was obtained by Al Arabiya English, and authenticated by the attorney for the plaintiffs, The Jerusalem Post reported.
Bender told the Florida District Court in testimony via a video link from Toronto that he had met with two senior Qatari officials along with Mohammad bin Ahmed bin Abdullah al-Masnad, Qatar’s Secretary to the BEmir for Security Affairs.
“If it wasn’t for our cash, Ilhan Omar would be just another black Somali refugee in America collecting welfare and serving tables on weekends,” the men allegedly told him, Bender testified.
He also noted that he refused a request by the men to recruit American politicians and journalists as Qatari assets, telling the court that Omar was described as the “jewel in the crown” by the officials who also revealed that other prominent figures were already recruited.
Qatar “recruited Ilhan Omar from even way before she thought about becoming a government official… They groomed her and arranged the foundation, the grounds, for her to get into politics way before she even showed interest. They convinced her,” Bender testified.
Omar allegedly swore allegiance to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan after a 2017 meeting when she was serving as a junior state representative in Minnesota, Bender reportedly told the court. The congresswoman, who has been a vocal critic of Israel, also allegedly passed information to Qatar which ended up being passed on to Iran. Omar came under scrutiny last month when she became the only House Democrat to vote against imposing sanctions against Turkey.
According to the Post’s report on Bender’s testimony, Omar was “actively involved in recruiting other American politicians to likewise work for the west Asian Islamic country.”
“The best thing money can buy is American officials, because they are the cheapest of the cheapest-costing officials in the world,” the officials from Qatar reportedly told Bender.
Omar’s spokesperson blasted the report as the latest example of “misinformation and conspiracy theories” aimed at the Minnesota lawmaker who, along with Tlaib, and Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, make up the group of four first-term, progressive Democratic congresswomen dubbed “The Squad.”
“Since the day she was elected, Saudi Arabian trolls and mouthpieces have targeted Omar with misinformation and conspiracy theories,” the spokesperson said in a statement to The Jerusalem Post.
“The latest, outlandishly absurd story from a Saudi-funded media outlet is of course false and only the latest in that trend,” the statement continued. “The only people Rep. Omar represents in Washington are the people of Minnesota’s 5th District. She will continue to speak out against human rights violations around the world – whether it is war crimes in Yemen or the caging of children at our border – regardless of who commits them.”
Imam Mohammad Tawhidi, the self-declared “Imam of Peace,” has previously warned that Omar is an agent for Qatar and took to Twitter to announce he is “directly involved in the Ilhan-Qatar scandal as a victim of Qatar’s plots and malicious lawsuits; and my name is mentioned all over the Federal US legal deposition.
As speculation abounded on Twitter about whether the report, which was apparently not being reported by the major media, was even credible, the imam continued to post messages, including his claim that the Qatari government hired a lawyer to “demand that Twitter delete my tweets and suspend me for exposing their dirty deals in Congress and the mainstream media.”
The Clarion Project, which describes itself as “a non-profit organization that educates the public about the dangers of radical Islam and other extremist ideologies,” dug into the many parts of the spreading story and determined that the evidence against Omar, in this case, is “flimsy.”
Others, like foreign policy and national security reporter Jordan Schachtel, threw cold water on the quickly spreading story about Omar, who was recently found guilty by the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board of breaking campaign finance rules.
One of the attorneys representing the intelligence community whistleblower at the center of the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry, tweeted conspicuously in January 2017 that a “coup has started” and that “impeachment will follow ultimately.”
July 2017, Zaid remarked, “I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president.” Also that month, Zaid tweeted, “We will get rid of him, and this country is strong enough to survive even him and his supporters.”
Amid a slew of impeachment-related posts, Zaid assured his Twitter followers that “as one falls, two more will take their place,” apparently referring to Trump administration employees who defy the White House. Zaid promised that the “coup” would occur in “many steps.”
The tweets, which came shortly after President Trump fired then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates for failing to defend federal laws in court, are likely to fuel Republican concerns that the anonymous whistleblower’s complaint is tainted with partisanship. Trump’s call with Ukraine’s leader, which is the subject of the complaint, occurred in July 2019.
“The whistleblower’s lawyer gave away the game,” the Trump campaign’s communications director, Tim Murtaugh, told Fox News. “It was always the Democrats’ plan to stage a coup and impeach President Trump and all they ever needed was the right scheme. They whiffed on Mueller so now they’ve settled on the perfectly fine Ukraine phone call. This proves this was orchestrated from the beginning.”
Trump has repeatedly accused Democrats and partisans in the intelligence community of effectively plotting a coup against him, through selective leaks and lengthy investigations.
“45 years from now we might be recalling stories regarding the impeachment of @realDonaldTrump. I’ll be old, but will be worth the wait,” Zaid wrote in June 2017.
He emphasized his interest in impeachment in a variety of other posts.
“Johnson (1868), Nixon (1973), Clinton (1998) impeachment hearings. Next up @realDonaldTrump (2017),” he said in May.
Fox News has previously reported on social media posts by Zaid that highlighted what appeared to be open animus toward the president.
Although Zaid described Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., as a “mature professional,” and circulated articles that touted the reliability of the largely discredited Steele dossier used by the FBI to surveil a former member of Trump’s campaign, Zaid has repeatedly unloaded on the president in no uncertain terms.
“I’m not a Trump fan,” Zaid said on a podcast last year. “I go out of my way on Twitter to say ‘#Resistance.’ It’s not a resistance against the GOP or a Republican — I don’t think [Trump] is a Republican, quite frankly.” (Zaid also boasted that he has sued “every” president since 1993, and pursues “them all,” regardless of party affiliation.)
Also in the podcast, Zaid acknowledged that he had been fishing for plaintiffs to launch a lawsuit concerning the Trump hotel in Washington, D.C., alleging unfair competition by the president and his associates.
“The unfair competition becomes, when Donald Trump became president, he has exploited his use of the presidency, of the Oval Office. … to send business to the hotel. … We identified this as a cause of action, and we were looking for a plaintiff, and we finally found this one restaurant that was willing,” Zaid admitted. A federal judge dismissed the lawsuit last year.
Zaid also had something of an open casting call for whistleblowers on Twitter as Trump took office, writing that CIA employees should “come to” his law firm “to lawfully challenge” the new president.
Zaid publicly requested that celebrities Debra Messing, Nancy Sinatra, Cher and Rob Reiner help promote his whistleblower law firm.
“@cher please check out our new whistleblower page,” Zaid wrote in one tweet, which garnered no response from the famed singer.
In February, Zaid escalated his pitch to Reiner, asserting that “we have a chance to depose” Trump in court. At one point last year, Zaid even pitched his services to Michael Avenatti, after the now-embattled attorney mentioned that he was “now representing whistleblowers within ICE.”
Another of the whistleblower’s attorneys, Andrew Bakaj, tweeted in August 2017 that Trump should be removed under the 25th Amendment, which applies to incapacitated presidents.
The posts have surfaced as Republicans demand that the anonymous whistleblower come forward and testify. On Sunday, House Oversight Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, rejected an offer from Zaid for the whistleblower to anonymously provide written answers to GOP questions.
“Written answers will not provide a sufficient opportunity to probe all the relevant facts and cross-examine the so-called whistleblower,” Jordan said. “You don’t get to ignite an impeachment effort and never account for your actions and role in orchestrating it.”
Zaid acknowledged in a statement in October that his client “has come into contact with presidential candidates from both parties” — but insisted that the contact involved the politicians’ roles as “elected officials – not as candidates.”
His abrupt disclosure came shortly after The Washington Examiner reported that Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson told lawmakers the whistleblower worked “or had some type of professional relationship” with one of the Democratic presidential candidates, citing three sources familiar with Atkinson’s interview with lawmakers last month.
Zaid and the other whistleblower attorneys did assert that the whistleblower “has never worked for or advised a political candidate, campaign or party” — leaving open the possibility that the whistleblower did advise a current 2020 Democratic presidential candidate prior to his or her run for office.
“The whistleblower is not the story,” the attorneys said. “To date, virtually every substantive allegation has been confirmed by other sources. For that reason, the identity of the whistleblower is irrelevant.”
But Republicans have challenged that claim, noting that various statements in the whistleblower claim have seemingly proved inaccurate. For example, the whistleblower complaint stated that Trump made a “specific request that the Ukrainian leader locate and turn over servers used by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and examined by the U.S. cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike” — a request that does not appear in the declassified transcript of the call released by the Trump administration. Trump mentioned CrowdStrike, but did not demand the server.
Meanwhile, Democrats on Wednesday released a transcript of testimony from U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor in which he claimed to have a “clear understanding” that Trump wanted to leverage military aid to Ukraine in return for investigations that could benefit him politically — while acknowledging he didn’t have firsthand knowledge of “what was in the president’s mind.”
“That was my clear understanding, security assistance money would not come until the President [of Ukraine] committed to pursue the investigation,” Taylor said.
Taylor is a top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine who has emerged as a key figure of interest in the Trump impeachment inquiry, having alleged a quid pro quo was at play despite White House denials.
The transcript shows that Taylor testified he had been told by other officials that the White House was willing to hold up both military aid and a prospective White House meeting with Ukraine’s president to extract a public announcement from Kiev that probes related to election interference and a company linked to former Vice President Joe Biden’s son were underway.
“Coup has started. … We will get rid of him.”—
Whistleblower attorney Mark Zaid, in 2017
“That’s what Ambassador Sondland said,”
Taylor said, referring to E.U. ambassador Gordon Sondland. “He said that they were linked. They were linked.”
But Republicans have countered that Taylor did not have primary knowledge regarding the key events in question, but rather based his testimony off conversations with others.
In one exchange between GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin and Taylor during his deposition, Taylor was asked whether he had any firsthand knowledge of Trump conditioning an investigation into the 2016 election and the Bidens on military aid.
Taylor said he did not speak to the president, or have any direct communication with the president regarding the requests for investigations. Instead, he said he was basing much of his testimony on what former United States Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations Kurt Volker and Sondland told him.

PART 1: FACTS NOT FICTION: The Federal Reserve is PRIVATELY OWNED
Dear American: Pursuant to your
request, I will attempt to clear up questions you have about the Federal
Reserve Bank (FED). I spent much time researching the FED and these are the
shocking and revealing conclusions.
by Thomas D. Schauf (c 1992)
THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK IS A PRIVATE COMPANY.
Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution states that Congress shall have the power to coin (create) money and regulate the value thereof. Today however, the FED, which is a privately owned company, controls and profits by printing money through the Treasury, and regulating its value.
The FED began with approximately 300 people or banks that became owners (stockholders purchasing stock at $100 per share – the stock is not publicly traded) in the Federal Reserve Banking System. They make up an international banking cartel of wealth beyond comparison.
The FED banking system collects billions of dollars in interest annually and distributes the profits to its shareholders. The Congress illegally gave the FED the right to print money (through the Treasury) at no interest to the FED. The FED creates money from nothing, and loans it back to us through banks, and charges interest on our currency. The FED also buys Government debt with money printed on a printing press and charges U.S. taxpayers interest. Many Congressmen and Presidents say this is fraud.
Who actually owns the Federal Reserve Central Banks? The ownership of the 12 Central banks, a very well kept secret, has been revealed:
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
These bankers are connected to London Banking Houses which ultimately control the FED. When England lost the Revolutionary War with America (our forefathers were fighting their own government), they planned to control us by controlling our banking system, the printing of our money, and our debt .
The individuals listed below owned banks which in turn owned shares in the FED. The banks listed below have significant control over the New York FED District, which controls the other 11 FED Districts.
These banks also are partly foreign owned and control the New York FED District Bank:
First National Bank of New York James Stillman National City Bank, New York
Mary W. Harnman National Bank of Commerce, New York
A.D. Jiullard Hanover National Bank, New York
Jacob Schiff Chase National Bank, New York Paul Warburg
Thomas F. Ryan William Rockefeller Levi P. Morton M.T. Pyne George F. Baker Percy Pyne Mrs. G.F. St. George J.W. Sterling Katherine St. George H.P. Davidson
J.P. Morgan (Equitable Life/Mutual Life) Edith Brevour T. Baker
How did it happen?
After previous attempts to push the Federal Reserve Act through Congress, a group of bankers funded and staffed Woodrow Wilson’s campaign for President. He had committed to sign this act. In 1913, a Senator, Nelson Aldrich, maternal grandfather to the Rockefellers, pushed the Federal Reserve Act through Congress just before Christmas when much of Congress was on vacation. When elected, Wilson passed the FED. Later, Wilson remorsefully replied (referring to the FED), “I have unwittingly ruined my country”.
Now the banks financially back sympathetic candidates. Not surprisingly, most of these candidates are elected . The bankers employ members of the Congress on weekends (nickname T&T club -out Thursday…-in Tuesday) with lucrative salaries. Additionally, the FED started buying up the media in the 1930’s and now owns or significantly influences most of it.
Presidents Lincoln, Jackson, and Kennedy
tried to stop this family of bankers by printing U.S. dollars without charging the taxpayers interest. Today, if the government runs a deficit, the FED prints dollars through the U.S. Treasury, buys the debt, and the dollars are circulated into the economy. In 1992, taxpayers paid the FED banking system $286 billion in interest on debt the FED purchased by printing money virtually cost free.
Forty percent of our personal federal income taxes goes to pay this interest. The FED’s books are not open to the public. Congress has yet to audit it. Congressman Wright Patman was Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Banking and Currency for 40 years. For 20 of those years, he introduced legislation to repeal the Federal Reserve Banking Act of 1913.
Congressman Henry Gonzales, Chairman of a banking committee, introduces legislation to repeal the Federal Reserve Banking Act of 1913 nearly every year. It’s always defeated, the media remains silent, and the public never learns the truth. The same bankers who own the FED control the media and give huge political contributions to sympathetic members of Congress.
THE FED FEARS THE POPULATION WILL BECOME AWARE OF THIS FRAUD AND DEMAND CHANGE
Rep. Louis T. McFadden (R. Pa.) rose from office boy to become cashier and then President of the First National Bank in Canton Ohio. For 12 years he served as Chairman of the Committee on Banking and Currency, making him one of the foremost financial authorities in America. He fought continuously for fiscal integrity and a return to constitutional government.
Rep. Louis T. McFadden (R. Pa.) rose from office boy to become cashier and then President of the First National Bank in Canton Ohio. For 12 years he served as Chairman of the Committee on Banking and Currency, making him one of the foremost financial authorities in America. He fought continuously for fiscal integrity and a return to constitutional government.
The following are portions of Rep. McFadden’s speech, quoted from the Congressional Record, pages 12595-12603:
“THE FEDERAL RESERVE BOARD, A GOVERNMENT BOARD, HAS CHEATED THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OUT OF ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY THE NATIONAL DEBT.
The depredations and the iniquities of the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks acting together have cost this country ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY THE NATIONAL DEBT SEVERAL TIMES OVER.”
About the Federal Reserve banks, Rep. McFadden said,
“They are private credit monopolies which prey upon the people of the United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers; foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers; the rich and predatory money lenders. This is an era of economic misery and for the reasons that caused that misery, the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks are fully liable.”
On the subject of media control he stated:
“Half a million dollars was spent on one part of the propaganda organized by those same European bankers for the purpose of misleading public opinion in regard to it.” “Every effort has been made by the Federal Reserve Board to conceal its power but the truth is the Federal Reserve Board has USURPED THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES. IT CONTROLS EVERYTHING HERE AND IT CONTROLS ALL OUR FOREIGN RELATIONS. IT MAKES AND BREAKS GOVERNMENTS AT WILL.”
Rep. McFadden continued,
“No man and no body of men is more entrenched in power than the arrogant credit monopoly which operates the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks. These evil doers have robbed this country of more than enough money to pay the national debt. What the Government has permitted the Federal Reserve Board to steal from the people should now be restored to the people.”
“Our people’s money to the extent of $1,200,000,000 has within the last few months been shipped abroad to redeem Federal Reserve Notes and to pay other gambling debts of the traitorous Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks. The greater part of our monetary stock has been shipped to foreigners.”
“Why should we promise to pay the debts of foreigners to foreigners? Why should American Farmers and wage earners add millions of foreigners to the number of their dependents? Why should the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks be permitted to finance our competitors in all parts of the world?”
Rep. McFadden asked.
“The Federal Reserve Act should be repealed and the Federal Reserve banks, having violated their charters, should be liquidated immediately.” FAITHLESS GOVERNMENT OFFICERS WHO HAVE VIOLATED THEIR OATHS SHOULD BE IMPEACHED AND BROUGHT TO TRIAL”
Rep. McFadden concluded
If the media is unbiased, independent and completely thorough, why haven’t they discussed the FED? Currently, half the states have at least a grass roots movement in action to abolish the FED, but there’s no press coverage.
In July, 1968, the House Banking Subcommittee reported that Rockefeller, through Chase Manhattan Bank, controlled 5.9% of the stock in CBS. Furthermore, the bank had gained interlocking directorates with ABC.
THE MEDIA THE ENEMY
In 1974, Congress issued a report stating that the Chase Manhattan Bank’s stake in CBS rose to 14.1% and NBC to 4.5% (through RCA, the parent company of NBC). The same report said that the Chase Manhattan Bank held stock in 28 broadcasting firms. After this report, the Chase Manhattan Bank obtained 6.7% of ABC, and today the percentage could be much greater. It only requires 5% ownership to significantly influence the media. This is only one of 300 wealthy shareholders of the FED. It is believed other FED owners have similar holdings in the media. To control the media, FED bankers call in their loans if the media disagrees with them.
Rockefeller also controls the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the sole purpose of which is to aid in stimulating greater interest in foreign affairs and in a one world government. Nearly every major newscaster belongs to the Council on Foreign Relations. The Council on Foreign Relations controls many major newspapers and magazines. Additionally, major corporations owned by FED shareholders are the source of huge advertising revenues which surely would influence the media. It can be no wonder why groups such as FED-UP(tm) receive minimal, if any, press attention.
In other words, by Congress allowing the constitutionally illegal FED to continue, much of your taxes go to the shareholders of the FED and their bankers. Note: The people who enacted the FED started the IRS, within months of the FED’s inception. The FED buys U.S. debt with money they printed from nothing, then charges the U.S. taxpayers interest. The government had to create income tax to pay the interest expense to the FED’s shareholders, but the income tax was never legally PASSED.
The FED is illegal, per Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution. Not one state legally ratified the 16th Amendment making income tax legal. Why has Congress allowed the FED to continue? If a Congressperson tries to abolish the FED, the banks fund the Congressperson’s opponent in the next election.
The new Congressperson will obviously support the FED. When Congresspeople retire, political campaign funds are not taxed. Get elected and be a millionaire if you vote right. By the way, the profit of the FED is not taxed either.
Consider this fact. Most of the given sources in this booklet show how the blood line of family bankers who own the FED funded both sides of all major wars. They created fake colonial money to destroy the Americans during the Revolutionary War and tried to finance both SIDES money to destroy the Americans during the Revolutionary War and tried to finance both sides in the American Civil War. Abraham Lincoln refused (REPUBLICANS) and the South accepted (DEMOCRATS).
Many publications show that these bankers financed World War I, World War II, and the Russian Revolutionary War, which helped Napoleon, Lenin, and Hitler come to power. They financed both sides from money created from nothing and profited greatly. These same bankers created a number of American depressions to change the U.S. legislation and seize our wealth. Read the sources for details. This is why our forefathers wrote in the Constitution that only Congress can issue money – not private banks
More wars create more debt which means more profit to the bankers. These bankers planned three world wars so people would welcome United Nations intervention to govern the world in peace, not war.
The banks have publicly announced
they will force us to a cashless society by 1997. Furthermore, they plan to
create a one world government through the United Nations headed by the FED,
Trilaterals, and the Council on Foreign Relations. By the definition of
treason, they have committed treason!
This means you lose your rights under the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Does this sound far fetched?
The FED announced publicly that their first objective was to get nationalism out of the American people’s heads because patriotism to a country would not be of value in the future. The media makes us think the U.N. has all the answers, and to “think globally.” State Department document 7277 calls for the disarming of America, thus turning our sovereignty over to a one-world government.
Again, the media is pushing to eliminate guns.
Our forefathers believed that the right to bear arms would prevent a takeover of our government. History shows that before any government took over, they disarmed the citizens. Hitler did it, and before our Revolutionary War, King George told us to disarm – good thing we didn’t!
Under the Federal Reserve Bank Act, the bankers control our economy. The FED controls interest rates and the amount of money in the economy. These factors determine either economic prosperity or the lack thereof. Bankers are now pushing for a one world government and a cashless society. Why cashless? .What is a cashless society really means is the banks can now control you. Today you fear the IRS. In a cashless society, if you disagree with the bankers’ political goals, you’ll find your money gone via computer error.
If you could accurately predict future interest rates, inflation and deflation, you would know when to buy or sell stocks and make a bundle of money. The FED has secret meetings (per Congressional Record) to determine future interest rates and the amount of money to be printed. The Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) by law, stops insiders from profiting by privileged information. Congressional records prove that FED bankers routinely hold secret meetings to profit by manipulating the stock market via interest rates and the amount of money they create. FED bankers also profit greatly from economic disasters like the Depression.
The bankers create inflation, sell
their stocks before the market crashes, then buy up stocks at cheaper prices.
Bankers admitted this to Congress. This violates the law, yet Congress does not
act because these bankers are large political contributors. Thomas Jefferson
predicted this scenario if we ever allowed a private bank, like the FED, to
create our currency.
FED Chairman Burns states “[A] Killing can be made simply by knowing the
next few months newspapers ahead of time.” Congressman Patman said
“The FED officials own more than 100 million dollars (of stocks) while
making decisions influencing these stock prices…” History proves that
banks profit from bankrupting a nation.
Section 7 of the Federal Reserve Act, passed December 23, 1913, states
that much of the profit of the FED should flow into the U.S. Treasury. In 1959,
new legislation allowed the FED to transfer bonds to commercial banks at no
cost to the bank. Now the FED receives less interest income and less profit for
the U.S. Treasury because the money is diverted to other banks through an
Congress and the IRS do not have access to the financial records of the FED.
Every year Congress introduces legislation to audit the FED, and every year it
is defeated. The FED banking system could easily be netting 100s of billions in
profit each year. Through “creative accounting” profit can easily be
reclassified as expense
Within the first few years, the shareholders of the FED received their initial investment back with no risk. All the income is tax-free, except for property tax, according to the Federal Reserve Act. . “We the People” have pushed the following states to pass or introduce legislation calling for an end to the FED: Arizona, Washington, Arkansas, Idaho, Oregon, Indiana, and Texas. . By abolishing the FED, we would not pay interest on Federal Reserve Notes. Until it is abolished, the FED has a monopoly on profit on our currency and whether our money supply will be increased or decreased, inflation or depression. The banks are capable of controlling business by controlling who can or cannot obtain a loan.
WHY OUR FOREFATHERS FOUGHT THE FED

and the nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws!” The above quote
has long been attributed to the 18th century banker Amshell Rothschild (his
blood line controls the FED). For if one unscrupulous group is allowed to print
a nation’s money – it can eventually use that money to gain control of the
press AND the politicians – and thus gain control of making the nation’s laws –
and finally – control of the nation itself.
If you will take the time to read the reference material listed which has been
researched by Professors of Universities, Congresspeople, etc, you will turn up
information that might frighten you. For instance, in 1921 the stockholders of
the Federal Reserve financed an organization called the “Council on
Foreign Relations” (CFR).
Harpers magazine called this the
most powerful organization in the United States. Ninety percent of the people
in the State Department and key positions in the Executive Branch are members
of the CFR. The CFR publishes a magazine called “Foreign Affairs.”
Read it if you want to know what is going to happen in coming years.
The CFR is in favor of a New World Order.
Congressman Patman re-quoted Thomas Jefferson showing that our founding fathers knew this banking principle very well. “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies….”
“Already they have raised up a money aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power (of money),” he said, “should be taken from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs.”
The American Revolution was a struggle to wrest control of wealth from the Bank of England and to restore the centers of power to the People where it “properly belongs.” The Constitution is specific about the authority of the People, through their elected officials, to control the money, and thus, the affairs of their government.
Ben Franklin said in his autobiography that the inability of the colonists to get the power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of George III and the international bankers was [one of] the PRIME reason[s] for the Revolutionary War.
Thomas Jefferson stated, “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered”
Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh of Minnesota said: “This [Federal Reserve] Act establishes the most gigantic trust on Earth. When the President [Wilson] signs this bill, the invisible government of the Monetary Power will be legalized… the worst legislative crime of the ages, perpetuated by this banking and currency bill.”
Robert H. Hemphill (Credit Manager, Federal Reserve Bank in Atlanta): “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 [the banking problem] 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 are remedied very soon.”
Napoleon, a sympathizer for the international bankers, turned against them in the last years of his rule. He said: “When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes… Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.”
Congresspeople have referred to Federal Reserve Notes as “FIAT” (no- backing) money.
In 1879 the Supreme Court declared that the U.S. Government can legally issue United States Notes, debt and interest-free, just as Lincoln and Kennedy attempted.
A bank that attempted to repossess property on the basis of default faced Judge Mahoney in a jury trial. Jerome Daly was found innocent. The bank could not foreclose on the property because it created the loan money from thin air, as many banks do. Use this as a precedent the next time any bank tries to foreclose on your house.
California 9th Circuit Court declared FED banks are private, not government.
Mr. Marriner Eccles, who was Chairman of the board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System longer than any other man, testified before the Joint Economic Committee in August 1962. When Chairman Rep. Wright Patman asked whether it was not a fact that the Federal Reserve System has more power than either the Congress or the President, Eccles replied: “In the field of money and credit, yes.”
Dr. Hans F. Sennholz, Chairman of the Department of Economics at Grove City (PA) College stated: “The Federal Reserve System facilitates the government’s own inflationary financing in “periods of emergency.” It makes easy the inflationary financing of budget deficits and the inflationary refunding of government loans. It stabilizes the government bond market through inflationary methods and manipulates this market to the advantage of the government. It does all this by wrecking the purchasing power of the dollar; by subtly stealing from the people of this country what it thus provides for the government, through a process exactly on par with the coin clipping of ancient kings but much less visible.”

“The Federal Reserve System is in the wrong hands. No Constitutional republic can function when the government’s money powers are in the hands of the financial oligarchy such as New York financiers.
By controlling Congress, the FED has been able to control the nominating conventions of both political parties. In this way, it has been able to hand-pick the presidential nominees so that no matter which party wins, their nominee for President is under definite obligations to the FED…
In 1975, the Rockefeller Foundation
Report discussed the “Interdependence” of the countries of the world
on each other. It stated we are one world and America shall become a
nation-state under one government. They also say we must reach a zero-state
population growth. The Rockefeller Foundation stated that they have in excess
of 747 million dollars to achieve this with.
Congressman John R. Rarick states that the Council on Foreign Relations CFR) is
dedicated to a one world government. The media remains conspicuously quiet. The
CFR wants to convert the U.S. from a sovereign, constitutional republic into a
servile member state of a one world dictatorship.
On February 17, 1950, CFR member James Warburg
(banker, and architect of the Federal Reserve System) stated before a Senate
Foreign Relations Committee, “We shall have one world government whether
or not you like it, by conquest or consent.” Again, the media remained
In the April 1974 issue of the CFR
journal, “Foreign Affairs”, page 558, Richard Gardener states that
the new world order “will be built… but an end run around national
sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-
fashioned frontal assault.” Congressman McDonald, Heinz and Tower stated
that this is a conspiracy. Again, the media remained silent..
In a letter to Thomas Jefferson, John Adams wrote: “All the perplexities,
confusions, and distresses in America arise, not from defects in the
Constitution or confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, as much as
from downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit, and circulation”.
British bankers have stated “Those that create, and issue money and credit direct the policies of government and hold in their hands the destiny of the people”.
Adams, Jefferson, and Lincoln believed that banker capitalism was more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. In a republic, banks would lend money but could not create or manufacture it.
Later, Jefferson used stronger language and denounced the institution as “one of the deadliest hostilities against the principles and form of our Constitution.” Some have said that Jefferson did not favor a strong central bank. What he did not favor was the delivery of our monetary system into private hands to be run for private profit.
President James A. Garfield said: “Whoever controls the money in any country is absolute master of industry and commerce”.
By controlling our own money, Thomas Jefferson expected that the government would incur no debt, as had occurred in the European system. European banks are like the FED.
* England lost the Revolutionary War. * England nearly destroyed the Colonies by creating fake Colonial money and hyper-inflation. * Rothschilds who control the Bank of England (Like our FED) said that by controlling the issue of money (printing it) you can control the government. * The authors of the Constitution understood private banks” control over governments. The Constitution gives only Congress the right to print money. * From the beginning of the United States to present there have been two ways to issue new currency:
• The first way is to have the government print the money, debt and interest- free, and circulate it through the economy for use as a medium of exchange. There is no tax levied to pay interest on the currency in circulation because it is debt and interest-free. This is the system Lincoln used with his “greenbacks”, a system Kennedy desired, and Jefferson demanded.
• The second method is: The Citizens allow the bank to print $500 billion in currency (cash). The bank pays for printing costs, ink, and paper. • The Citizens do not charge the bank any interest for use of the $500 billion in printed currency. • The bank uses the $500 billion cash to buy a $500 billion government bond which pays the bankers interest. • The bank keeps some of the bonds and sells, for a fee (10%), some of the bonds to the public. • The bank can buy back the bonds from the public simply by printing more money. • The bankers can create inflation and depressions by manipulating the amount of currency in circulation. • The FED operates exactly like this today. It also prints money (through the U.S. Treasury) and uses this printed money to buy loans from other banks. This money has created our inflation. • We give the bank cash interest-free, then they charge us interest on our own currency
ANDREW JACKSON – A GREAT PRESIDENT!
When the 1816 charter expired in 1836, Andrew Jackson vetoed its renewal. It was then that he made two famous statements: “The Bank is trying to kill me – but I will kill it!” Later he said “If the American people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system – there would be a revolution before morning…”
ABRAHAM LINCOLN – ANOTHER GREAT PRESIDENT!
President Lincoln needed money to
finance the Civil War, and the international bankers offered him loans at
24-36% interest. Lincoln balked at their demands because he didn’t want to
plunge the nation into such a huge debt.
Lincoln approached Congress about passing a law to authorize the printing of U.S. Treasury Notes. Lincoln said “We gave the people of this Republic the greatest blessing they ever had – their own paper money to pay their debts…” Lincoln printed over 400 million “Greenbacks” (debt and interest-free) and paid the soldiers, U.S. government employees, and bought war supplies. The international bankers didn’t like it and wanted Lincoln to borrow the money from them so that the American people would owe tremendous interest on the loan. Lincoln’s solution made this seem ridiculous. Shortly after Lincoln’s death, the government revoked the Greenback law which ended Lincoln’s debt-free, interest-free money. A new national banking act was enacted and all money became interest bearing again.
The late Thomas A Edison explained the matter of issuing currency this way: “If our nation can issue a dollar bond (interest bearing) it can issue a dollar bill (interest-free). The element that makes the bond good makes a bill good also. The difference between the bond and the bill is that the bond lets money brokers collect twice the amount of the bond and an additional 20 percent, whereas the currency pays nobody but those who contribute directly in some useful way.
It is absurd to say that our country can issue $30 million in bonds and not $30 million in currency. Both are promises to pay: But one promise fattens the usurers (interest collectors) and the other helps the people.”
The FED is owned largely by foreign banks that control our economy and Congress through the power of money and the media which they bought with profits generated with profits generated by artificial debt
Lincoln printed debt and interest-free Greenbacks (cash) to finance an entire war. . Lincoln proved it. John F. Kennedy – a President with vision! On June 4, 1964, President Kennedy issued Executive Order 11110. This Executive Order called for the issuance of new currency – the United States Note.
At the time, $4,292,893 of this
currency was put into circulation. This new currency was to be distributed
through the U.S. Treasury and not the Federal Reserve System. Furthermore, it
was to be issued debt and interest-free. Upon Kennedy’s assassination, this
currency was withdrawn from circulation, never to be issued again.
The media remained silent on how Kennedy would have eliminated the debt and interest payments, and therefore eliminated the FED. U.S. history proves that issuing debt and interest-free currency allows our economy to prosper, as long as Congress controls the amount of money created.
