- Today, after the conversion of Iraq
to the Banklords, only five countries in the world are without a central
bank: Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Cuba and Libya . All of these just happen
to be on George Bush's "Evil of Axis" list.
- At the January, 2006 World Economic Forum, five of the
world's most important economists bewailed the fact that they had missed
the rise in oil and in gold. By May, gold had risen to $730 oz. while energy
had gone over $70 bbl.
- When gold stayed at $600 oz. after falling from its high
in May and the oil markets reached $75 bbl., their most recent high, I
asked myself what would be used to change the commodity cycle. In May we
saw a 10-15% drop in the price of gold and a correction in the price of
oil. Throughout the summer the market recovered with oil reaching $75bbl.
While gold stocks made up some of the loss, gold bullion did not. It stayed
around $600 oz. Oil today is at $60 bbl. CNBC said on September 21, "With
oil down 20%, the steep decline is even confounding the experts!"
Is what we are seeing indeed confounding all the experts, or is it managed
and manipulated to benefit a small group of powerful insiders?
- Last week, we saw once again how Wall Street changes
the minds of investors. For the last ten years or so, the gas guzzling
SUV has been the premier choice of vehicles for most Americans. High oil
prices put both General Motors and Ford at risk, as both companies announced
drastic measures and big lay-offs last week. The Ford Company, in announcing
they were not going to manufacture the SUV any longer said, "The North
American business model does not work." In response to this information,
a friend of mine, who just visited Italy, told me that she was surprised
at the increase in the number of SUVs in Italy.
- Why the huge drop in the price of oil? Wall Street would
have us believe that it was the new oil reserve found in the Gulf, even
though it will take 7-10 years to bring it on line. On 9/11, 2006 CNBC's
Larry Kramer forecasted that oil will never go back to $75bbl, and that
it is time to buy drug stocks. A little later that same day, we were told
that the rise in gold and oil, which began 9/11/01, was over. The price
of gas at the pump began to drop and, according to CNBC the next day, "Consumers
are feeling better, more secure, and richer over lower energy." CNBC
then went on to show SUV's and tell us, "Maybe it is time to buy an
- The bottom line is that Wall Street and our central bank
made a huge mistake by raising interest rates at the same time they increased
the price of energy and they are back-peddling. What they found is that
the power of the consumer to buy is gone. They are not able to put gas
in their SUVs and they are not buying new ones. Furthermore, they cannot
afford a new home which doubled in price as a result of 45 year low interest
rates. In other words, there is a very high inventory of SUVs by all the
auto dealers and home builders have at least one year of homes on the market.
- Currently, gold is at $565 (9/21) and has lost over 22%
in spite of the fact that the metal hit a 26 year high of $730 oz. in mid-May.
Within the last two weeks, gold is down 10%, for a total drop of 20% year
to date. According to one gold analyst, the central bankers began dumping
gold on July 18 to keep it from rising as a result of the new Middle East
War. They say that if gold had risen to $700 oz., oil would have exploded
to $90bbl. Does any of this make sense? As a friend of mine would say,
"What in the earth is going on?"
- Perhaps, instead, we need to ask "Who is in control?"
Are there natural forces that set the value of diamonds, gold, bonds, stocks,
housing, farm land, etc., or are they manipulated to fill the coffers of
powerful groups and individuals, as they skim off the top of the world's
asset highs? This newsletter is not an excuse for the market but hopefully
will educate you about forces behind the scene.
- Having spent 25 years in this business and having covered
90 global meetings over the last 12-13 years, I have observed presidents,
prime ministers, kings, princes, dukes, key officials from the various
United Nations organizations, CEO's from some of the world's most powerful
corporations, economists, and others.My research and observations have
led me to determine that there are a number of powerful forces that rule
the world, independent of government. In fact, government is getting weaker
through privatization, as it spins off assets and sells them to corporations.
Just recently, Norway overthrew their Democratic Socialist government so
they can privatize more of their government assets! While I personally
believe the British royal family rules the world, they do not rule it alone.
There are at least three actors: central banks, the power and legacy of
Cecil Rhodes, and the immense financial power of the biggest international
banking family, the Rothschilds. When you consider all of these, you have
a three-strand cord -- in other words, a strong cord that it will not break.
- Central banks control the monetary system of the world
and determine when business cycles are going to change simply by increasing
or decreasing the money supply in the banking system. This small group
of powerful insiders know when to sell high and buy low because they determine
when the market cycle is going to change. What has just happened with oil
and gold prices is an example of the power brokers who rule the world.
- Cecil Rhodes was a British aristocrat who went down to
South Africa to mine diamonds and ended up discovering gold. DeBeers Diamonds
was the corporation that he founded as a result of the Anglo-Boer War.
He also founded one of the largest gold companies in the world, Gold Fields.
- Rhodes loved his mother country so much that he dedicated
everything he had to setting up secret societies and college scholarships
(Rhodes Scholars) for the furtherance of bringing the world under British
rule. Rhodes said the British "are the finest race in the world and
if the world were British, there would be no further wars." (Interestingly
enough, he would have to wage war against all the independent nations of
the world in order for "peace" to happen.) Working closely with
Rhodes in helping to finance his quest to corner the diamond and gold markets
and to carry out his final vision, was his banker, Nathaniel Rothschild
of the British Rothschild banking family.
- I make no claim to knowing everything. We are all entitled
to our opinions. The following analysis is mine, based on years of extensive
research both in regard to history and to the market. Consider:
- When Rhodes died, he left a series of wills in which
he wanted to set up a secret "society of the just", based on
the Jesuit Society, to carry out his vision of a world united under British
rule. Interestingly enough, he worked very closely with the British and
French Rothschild families to finance the merger and consolidation of all
the various South African diamond and gold concessions. One of his directives
was to educate well selected men (and recently, women) from key colleges
and universities from around the world, in the philosophy of bringing the
world under British rule. These people are known as "Rhodes Scholars"
and include former President Clinton and many others in government.
- CENTRAL BANKS
- Regarding the power of central banks, if you will take
a piece of paper money out of your wallet -- any denomination -- you will
see these words, "Federal Reserve Note -- This note is legal tender
for all debts, public and private." You might ask yourself why the
paper money does not state that it is a note from the Treasury of the United
States? If the Federal Reserve is not the Treasury, what is it? The Federal
Reserve is a "central bank." To put it in every day terms, it
is a private corporation which claims to provide a service to the people
of the United States by providing the money used in our banking system.
- When America was founded, there were great and serious
debates over who should control the monetary system of our new country.
While President Washington was chosen by unanimous vote, he appointed a
number of constitutional advisers. Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson
believed in the capacity of the common people for self-government. Secretary
of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton, an aristocrat by birth and breeding
and connected to the Tory element of the Revolution, believed our monetary
system should be like that of England's with a private corporation -- central
bank (Bank of England). Washington accepted the views of Hamilton and signed
a bill into law creating our first central bank (The Coming Battle, M.W.
Walbert, 1899, republished 1977, 3).
- When Congress refused to renew the Bank's charter in
1811, the War of 1812 ensued, and in 1816 Congress re-chartered the bank
with a capital stock of $35M. "From 1816 to 1828, it was the sole
arbiter of the financial affairs of the nation, both public and private.
Its power in politics was immense and it swayed elections as well"
- Senator Benton of Missouri thoroughly understood the
means by which the bank had obtained its mastery over the commerce and
industry of the nation and at the session of Congress presented a resolution
in the Senate to the effect that the charter should not be renewed (Walbert,12).
Senator Benton said,
- The government itself ceases to be independent, it ceases
to be safe when the national currency is at the will of a company [Bank
of the United States, now Federal Reserve]. The government can undertake
no great enterprise, neither war nor peace, without the consent and co-
operation of that company; it cannot count its revenues six months ahead
without referring to the action of that company -- its friendship or its
enmity, its concurrence or opposition -- to see how far that company will
permit money to be scares or to be plentiful; how far it will let the money
system go on regularly or throw it into disorder; how far it will suit
their interest or policy. People are not safe when such a company has such
power. The temptation is too great, the opportunity too easy, to put up
or put down prices, to make and break fortunes, to bring the whole community
upon its knees to the Neptunes who preside over the flux and reflux of
paper. All property is at their mercy, the price of real estate, of every
growing crop, of every staple article in the market, is at their command.
Stocks are their playthings -- their gambling theatre on which they gamble
daily with as little secrecy and as little morality and far more mischief
to fortunes than common gambles carry on their operations (emphasis added)
- When Andrew Jackson was elected President in 1828, he
announced in his first message to Congress that he would not renew its
charter. By that time, the Bank had great accumulations of reserves. Jackson
advocated the passage of a law distributing these surplus revenues back
to the states. He ended up vetoing the law Congress passed to re-charter
the Bank. His reasons were salient and vital to future U.S. security. Jackson
pointed out that the bank's stock, worth $8 million, was held by foreigners,
chiefly in Britain, and that this was the most dangerous feature of the
plan because a majority of shares of its stock might fall into alien hands,
which, if we were involved in a war, could use its influence against the
United States (Walbert, 17).
- In 1881, President James A Garfield said,
- Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is
absolute master of all industry and commerce....and when you realize that
the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few
powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation
and depression originate.
- Needless to say, the move to re-establish control over
the economy of the United States did not abate. Between 1840 and 1913,
there was much done to try and re-establish a private corporation to control
our monetary system.
- In 1910 a group of men met in secret on Jekyll Island
to plan the establishment of the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States.
These men were members of Cecil Rhodes secret circles: Frank Vanderlip,
Benjamin Strong, Paul Warburg, Henry P. Davison, Charles Norton, and Senator
- Three years later in 1913, the central bankers took action.
This time the people involved in this effort included some of the wealthiest
people in America: Senator Nelson Aldrich (grandfather of David Rockefeller);
Jacob Schiff and Paul Warburg of Kuhn, Loeb and Company, an international
banking house; Piatt Andrew, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury; Henry
P. Davidson, Senior Partner of J.P. Morgan & Company; Charles D. Norton,
and Frank Vanderlip, President of National City Bank which today is CitiGroup.
The passage of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was done through chicanery.
Those in the Senate who favored the Act did not go home while those that
were against it went home for Christmas. In a special session convened
with quorum, the Act passed at 11:45 p.m. on December 24, 1913 -- an evil
act of bondage for the American people.
- Today, only five countries in the world are without a
central bank: Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Cuba and Libya. All of these just
happen to be on George Bush's "Evil of Axis" list.
- With the passage of the Federal Reserve Act, our monetary
system changed back to one of control by a private corporation and not
the U.S. Treasury. Our currency is an IOU against the "Federal Reserve
Note." Earlier in the day on December 24, 1913, Congressman Charles
A. Lindberg, Jr. stated from the House floor: "This Act established
the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs this bill, the
invisible government by the Monetary Power will be legalized...The worst
legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking bill."
We should note that President Woodrow Wilson could have vetoed this bill
like Andrew Jackson did, but he had been put into power by the same powers
that passed the bill.
- Since 1913, the Federal Reserve Act has been amended
over 195 times. In 1914-1939, U.S. Federal Reserve Notes were backed by
gold certificates to 40% of their value. This was reduced by 25% in 1945
and today it is questionable as to how much gold backing there may be.
- There have been a number of empowerments given to all
central banks, including the Federal Reserve, over the last ten years.
In 1997, the Bank of England was given powers, like the Federal Reserve,
which included the power to set interest rates without permission from
government and to have a separate pool of foreign exchange reserves to
INTERVENE in currency markets at their discretion. A Washington Times article
has stated that their central bank minister, Gordon Brown, was "modeling
the Bank of England much more closely after the U.S. Federal Reserve which
can adjust rates even if that causes short-term political discomfort for
the White House" (Washington Times-WT, 5/7/97,1). About the same time,
the Bank of Japan was also given more power to determine monetary policy.
Currently, the Bank of England, the Bundesbank and the European Central
Bank all have the same power as the Federal Reserve to change interest
rates without approval from government, first.
- Also in 1997, it appears that there was a harmonization
between Fed concerns and market direction. Starting then, every time Federal
Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan made any kind of comment about the market,
it reacted. This continues. The market takes its direction from the Fed.
- Then, in 1999 Congress passed HR1094, which amended the
Federal Reserve Act to broaden the range of discount window loans (i.e.
where banks borrow from the Fed overnight to maintain their capitalization)
that could be used as collateral for Federal Reserve Notes. Assets eligible
for collateral include: Treasury and federal agency securities, gold certificates,
Special Drawing Rights, foreign currencies, and discount window loans made
under Section 13 of the Federal Reserve Act. What we can see is that as
our indebtedness grows, this private corporation wants more collateral
for the loans it is making to the U.S. government. Furthermore, with the
expansion and harmonization of central bank powers, the Fed has gained
great power over the government. It is the Federal Reserve Chairman who
TELLS Congress what he thinks and some of what he is doing, not the other
- Karl Marx said this about central banking, "By means
of the banking system the distribution of capital is taken out of the hands
of the private capitalists and usurers. But at the same time, banking and
credit thus become the most effective means of driving capitalist production
beyond its own boundaries, and one of the most potent instruments of crises
and swindles" (Mayer, 39).
- CECIL RHODES
- In the book The Founder: Cecil Rhodes and the Pursuit
of Power by Robert Rotberg, a Rhodes Scholar, he says this about Cecil
- He is the Founder -- of international diamond industry,
of Rhodesia, and of the Scholarships; the Premier -- of the Cape; the Lawgiver
-- of the Glen Grey act, of the Rhodesia's; the World States man -- the
confidant of Queen Victoria and Kaiser Wilhelm, the colleague of Lord Salisbury,
Lord Rosebery [a British Prime Minister who was related to Rothschilds],
and other British political leaders; and the Visionary -- the giant genius
who dreamed of reuniting the English-speaking worlds, linking the Cape
to Cairo by rail and telegraph, and propagating a heady gospel of decent
deeds, of noble ends absolving questionable means, and of the compelling
pull of purposeful magnets of destiny (Rotberg, 3).
- Born an aristocrat, by the time of his death in 1902
at 48, Cecil Rhodes and his siblings received rents from nearly 1600 properties
of the family estate, which were purchased before his father died in 1794.
Rhodes was ruthless, evil, vain, and cunning. He used whatever means to
bring Southern Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) and Northern Rhodesia (Zambia) under
British rule, as well as, give British protection to Botswana and Malawi.
He almost took Mozambique from the Portuguese, and Zaire from the Belgians.
He fought the Anglo-Boer War against the Afrikaners who lived in Natal
and the interior highlands, where they set up two independent republics,
the Orange Free State and the South African (Transvaal) Republic. There,
gold was discovered and Rhodes used any and all means to gain control of
these countries in order to gain control of the gold. It should be noted
that back in Britain, supported by the British Foreign Office and sympathetic
newspapers, the Brits were fed a steady diet of why it would be good for
Britain to help the poor, backward Africans have peace.
- Rhodes spent most of his time in South Africa looking
to consolidate all of the diamond concessions under his power. There were
the two DeBeers mines and the "Kimberley", which was divided
into four mine with over 3,600 claims against it and owned by 98 companies
and individuals. According to his biographer, "power" and "control"
were central organizing principles for Rhodes. He used his own money, along
with that of several others, including: Alfred Beit, who owned the most
powerful South African financial house of Wernher, Beit & Co.; Lionel
Phillips, who controlled H. Eckstein & Company, the largest South African
mining syndicate; and the heavy financial backing of the British and French
Rothschild banks. And so, by 1889 Rhodes was able to put the Kimberley
diamond mines under his DeBeers Diamonds.
- Rhodes waged war against any and all who got in his way
of consolidating the diamond mines. Supported by the British government,
which agreed to his Anglo-American vision, Rhodes waged a financial war
against competitors Barney Barnato and the Standard Company, and Baring
Gould and the Central Company. Rhodes said of the Central Company, "We
must have the four mines and I will allow no foreign vulture to step in
at the end and form a separate mine on the Stock exchange apart form us
to get a flotation on our name" (Rotberg, 205). His method was to
swallow up poorer ones and buy out richer ones.
- After diamonds were found on the DeBeers farms, Rhodes
mercenaries fought a vicious war against the Boers, "independent-minded
farmers, ranchers, and merchants in southern Africa who lived by the Bible
and rifle" (Institute for Historical Review). They were lead by President
Paul Kruger. According to Mark Weber of the Institute for Historical Review,
Jan Smuts, a 31 year old Boer general, and future South African prime minister,
wrote that for every male Boer killed four Boer women and children were
starved to death in British concentration camps. He described the war as
- Lord Kitchener has begun to carry out a policy in both
Boer republics of unbelievable barbarism and gruesomeness which violates
the most elementary principles of the international rules of war. Almost
all farmsteads and villages in both republics have been burned down and
destroyed. All crops have been destroyed. All livestock which has fallen
into hands of the enemy has been killed or slaughtered (Rotberg).
- The British government declared war after the Boers signed
a treaty that recognized King Edward VII as their sovereign. The DeBeers
corporate trust was, permitted to acquire any asset of any kind by any
means. It could also own mines, water rights, houses, farms -- anything.
It could trade in precious stones, all manner of miners, any kind of machinery,
patents, inventions, and products in Africa or elsewhere. It could construct
and operate canals, railways, gasworks, reservoirs, factories, and so on.
It could engage in banking. It could even acquire 'tracts of country' in
Africa or anywhere, together with rights transferred to it by indigenous
rulers, and expend moneys for the pacification and administration of such
estates (Rotberg, 209).
- DeBeers was to be run by "Life Governors",
which was a new and innovative concept at the time. They would control
the operations of the concern and be able to operate in nearly all respects
as if there were no other shareholders. The five Life Governors would be
entitled to 14 of all profits beyond the first 30% which would go to dividend
recipients (Rotberg, 207). Once they had control, the Life Governors, basically,
had another kind of East India Company operating, thus controlling 90%
of the world diamonds. Without this cartel, the price of diamonds would
be a fraction of the current market value -- as they are very plentiful.
In fact sapphires and rubies have a higher per carat value, depending on
the quality of the stone, than diamonds.
- Regarding the Life Governorship and the ability of Rhodes
to take DeBeers cash whenever he wanted to seize a new opportunity, both
he and Beit gave up their life governorship in exchange for 80,000 shares
of DeBeers, so that Rothschild and the others could manage the corporation
- In the case of gold, Rhodes fomented war, whenever it
was needed and was not afraid of exploiting the graciousness of African
rulers to effectively take their countries from them, instead of just mining
gold. Regarding gold found in the trans-Limpopo region, the trans-Zambezia,
the copperlands of Katanga, and the borderlands of Lake Malawi, Rhodes
betrayed the trust of the ruler of that region, Lobengula.
- To help with the operation, Rhodes offered Rothschild
a large share, gratis, in what he believed would eventually prove to be
a great thing, as he subdued Lobengula's territory. Rhodes was able to
control Zimbabwe by "moneys obtained by pyramiding shares backed by
promises rather than assets. DeBeers and Gold Fields had solid stakes but
the famous trust deeds were licenses for stock speculations" (Rotberg,
274). What Rhodes did before he took control of new lands is get a royal
charter from the Queen to establish a mining corporation and, then, he
raised monies by selling shares. The Rothschilds were always important
shareholders in every scheme Rhodes floated.
- While the following is based on strong research of Georgetown
University professor, Dr. Carroll Quigley, because of the secrecy surrounding
Rhodes dealings, it cannot be verified. Dr. Quigley named the following
as being included as key players or Initiates with Rhodes: Nathan Rothschild,
Baron Rothschild; Sir Harry Johnston; William T. Stead; Reginal Brett;
Viscount Esher; and Alfred Milner, Viscount Milner; Alfred Beit; Archibald
Primrose, Earl of Rosebery; Arthur James Balfour; Lionel Curtis; Viscount
Waldorf Astor and Lady Astor. The Association of Helpers or the Inner Circle
included: Philip Kerr, Marquess of Lothian; Lionel Curtis; Jan Smuts; and
Arnold Toynbee; The Outer Circle included: Robert Cecil, Viscount Cecil
of Chelwood and Isaiah Berlin (Quigley, The Anglo-American Establishment,
- After the death of Rhodes, Lord Rothschild, Alfred Beit,
and Stead carried out the plans in his seven wills, which includes the
Rhodes Scholarship program. According to Dr. Carroll Quigley who wrote
from an insiders point of view in his book, Tragedy and Hope,
- In 1891, Rhodes organized a secret society with members
in a 'Circle of Initiates' and an outer circle known as the 'Association
of Helpers' later organized as the Round Table organization. In 1909- 1913,
they organized semi-secret groups known as Round Table Groups in the chief
British dependencies and the United States. The Round Table Groups were
semi-secret discussion and lobbying groups whose original purpose was to
federate the English speaking world along lines laid down by Cecil Rhodes.
In 1915, Round Table groups existed in England, South Africa, Canada, Australia,
New Zealand, India, and the United States. Money for their activities originally
came from Cecil Rhodes, J. P. Morgan, the Rockefeller and Whitney families,
and associates of bankers Lazard Brothers and Morgan, Grenfell and Company.
In New York, it was known as the Council on Foreign Relations and was a
front for J.P. Morgan and Company, in association with the very small American
Round Table Group.
- Quigley also wrote,
- There does exist and has existed for a generation, an
international Anglophile network which operates to some extent in the way
the Radical Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which
we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating
with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so.
- According to one expert on the dream of Cecil Rhodes',
the U.S. Roundtable Group, known as the Council on Foreign Relations-CFR
is the equivalent of the British Royal Institute for International Affairs,
now known as Chatham House. Another group is the Pilgrims Society of which
Queen Elizabeth II is the patron. There are other related groups. Many
of the people who are members of one group are also members of other related
groups. President Bill Clinton was our first Rhodes Scholar president and
he, along with most of our presidents, and key officials, throughout the
present and past administrations, are members of the CFR.
- In several previous newsletters on oil, I discussed the
role of President Nixon and Henry Kissinger's National Strategic Study
Memorandum 200, as well as, the role of the Council on Foreign Relations
with regard to keeping third world countries backward, so they would not
need their own oil resources for industry or manufacturing plants. The
old adage, "He who owns the gold, makes the rules" will always
be true. If gold were not important or valuable, Rhodes would not have
waged vicious wars over it. The same is true for diamonds. When will gold
lose its shine? When diamonds lose theirs.
- THE ROTHSCHILDS
- In describing the activities of the Rothschild family,
author Fritz Springmeier wrote, "They have indebted kings, manipulated
kingdoms, created wars, and molded the very shape of the international
world." This powerful banking firm had humble beginnings. The man
responsible for this global banking empire was born in the ghetto in Frankfurt-am-Main
in 1743, and the son of a money lender. Mayer Amschel Bauer, who eventually
took the name Rothschild (which means "red shield"), had five
sons and five daughters.
- After his father died, he was sent to the firm of Wolf
Jakob Oppenheim[er], where he learned the coin business. In 1764, he became
a dealer in rare coins and metals. Mayer Amschel envisioned a very closely
connected family banking empire on five continents with each son in a different
country. While he started the vision and set down very strict rules for
his sons, it was the brilliance and cunning of his 3rd son, Nathan, who
started NM Rothschild & Sons in England that paved the way for the
firm to become the first, truly, international banking cartel.
- Mayer Amschel's first coin transaction was with William,
Hereditary Prince of Hesse-Kassel. By the end of the 17th century, he had
established himself as Frankfurt's leading dealer, not only in coins and
metals, but also in all kinds of antiques. By 1797, he was one of the richest
Jews in Frankfurt and his business had moved into banking. According to
English historian, E. C. Knuth,
- It was Nathan, founder of the British house which plays
so important a role in the affairs of the City (the financial and legal
part of the City of London which is in itself a private corporation and
known by the same name as the larger City of London) and consequently in
the affairs of all the world. Professor Usher stated in his Pan-Germanism
of 1913: "Russia, Turkey, Egypt, India, China, Japan and South America
are probably owned, as far as any nation can be owned in London or Paris.
The world itself, in fact, pays them tribute; it actually rises in the
morning to earn its living by utilizing their capital, and occupies its
days in making the money to pay them interest, which is to make them still
wealthier" (Knuth, p.69).
- Furthermore, it was the goal of poverty-stricken Mayer
Amschel to have titles of nobility. However, because they were Jewish,
they were shunned and restricted from society. This went back to the first
king who booted the Jews out of his kingdom because they lent at usury,
something that was not done in the Christian religion. However, as lending
at interest became more widespread, especially because of the rise of central
banks, their integration into society became accepted.
- Amschel's benefactor, Prince William of Hesse-Kassel,
made his money by selling mercenaries to the rulers of Europe, so they
could wage war to enlarge their kingdoms. William's cousin, King George
III was one of William's largest customers, helping him with his was against
the Colonies. William was pure royalty. His grandfather was George II of
England. He was a nephew of the King of Denmark and a brother-in-law to
the King of Sweden. The income from selling mercenaries made William the
richest ruler in Europe. From a very clever business standpoint, Mayer
Amschel determined he was going to be his banker and gain his business.
He did so by selling him rare coins at rock bottom prices. It worked and
soon he was selling to other members of royalty.
- According to Frederick Morton, Mayer was at the right
place at the right time. Since the entire treasury of Denmark consisted
of a deficit, and William had a huge surplus, the question was how to help
his uncle, the king of Denmark? William could not do it, directly, because
of delicate family ties. So he used his kingdom of Denmark as collateral
to cut a deal, incognito, with an obscure bank, like the Rothchilds' (Morton,
- However, it was Napoleon who really enriched Mayer Amshel
Bauer who by that time had changed his name to Rothschild. Napoleon was
determined to rid Europe of Prince William and so, as the prince fled Napoleon,
he entrusted Rothschild with $3M. His son, Nathan, who established banking
interests in England, invested this money in "gold from the East India
Company, knowing that it would be needed for Wellington's peninsula campaign."
On the temporarily stolen money, N. Rothschild made four profits before
he returned it to the Prince with interest: (1) on the sale of Wellington's
bonds which he bought at 50 cents on the dollar and collected at par, (2)
on the sale of gold to Wellington, (3) on its repurchase, and (4) then
selling it to Portugal.
- Furthermore, the Rothschilds funded both sides of the
Napoleonic War with their various banks across Europe. Because of their
unrivalled network of secret routes and fast couriers, including, pigeons,
it was their intelligence system that allowed Nathan in England to provide
Napoleon with important information on how the war with Wellington was
- Nathan had a particular place (a favorite column) at
the London Stock Exchange from which he would conduct business. From that
position he could direct his traders, while non-affiliated traders could
see if he was buying or selling, which usually set the trend for the day.
After he learned that Wellington had won the war with Napoleon, Nathan
stood at his post and without any expression on his face began to direct
his traders to sell. This went on for most of the day. The non-affiliated
traders determined that Wellington had lost, and they started to sell.
Then, right before the market closed, when prices had hit rock bottom,
Rothschild directed his agents to purchase all the bonds for pennies on
the dollar. He had known more than they did. Biographer Frederick Morton
wrote this about Nathan,
- We cannot guess the number of hopes and savings wiped
out by this engineered panic. We cannot estimate how many liveried servants,
how many Watteaus and Rembrandts, how many thoroughbreds in his descendants'
stables, the man by the pillar won that single day (Morton, 50).
- Once it was clear that Britain won the war, these bonds
increased in value higher than the face value, which provided Rothschild
with a 20:1 return on his investment. This coup gave the Rothschild family
complete control of the British economy, now the financial center of the
world, following Napoleon's defeat. Nathan Rothschild, now in essence controller
of the new central Bank of England, said,
- I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England
to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls Britain's
money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money
- After Napoleon's defeat the leaders of Europe were meeting
in Congress at Aix-la-Chapelle. Important financial arrangements were going
to be discussed. The most important piece of business was the floating
of a second installment of a French loan, designed to help the new government
pay off its war indemnity. The first French loan went to various investment
banking houses: the Ouvards of Paris, then Hopes (the ancient Anglo-Dutch
banking house) and Barings of London, while the Rothschilds were shunned.
The established banking houses would not give them any piece of the action.
But, unbeknownst to them, the Rothschilds started buying the same bonds
these banks were floating. This boosted the price of the bonds which encouraged
the above referenced banking houses about the demand for these bonds. By
the end of the week, the market was on the verge of an unexpected crash.
Little did they suspect that the Rothschilds, whom they had snubbed, had
all their banks buy the bonds and then sell them all at once after they
had given them a false high! The Rothschild's made their abilities very
clear and were permitted entry into this privileged club of finance.
- According to Derek Wilson, in 1830 there were uprisings
in Poland, Belgium, and the northern Italian states of Parma, Modena, and
Romagna. The Rothschilds worked to maintain peace and stability. Armed
intervention meant money. Money meant applying to the "five brothers
of Europe" who began to attach political strings to their loans. Salomon
was quite open: "These gentlemen should not count on us unless they
decide to follow a line of prudence and moderation...Our goodwill does
not yet extent to the point of putting clubs into the hands that would
beat us." When the Rothschild's would not finance the Belgian revolutionaries,
they relied on their negotiation skills. When they got into power, James
Rothschild said of the change, "Now is the moment to make ourselves
absolute masters of that country's finances. The first step will be to
establish ourselves on an intimate footing with Belgium's new Finance Minister,
to gain his confidence...and to take all the treasury bonds he may offer
us" (Wilson, p.100).
- On the other hand if you offended the Rothschilds, as
the Spanish government did, the five brothers taught them a lesson by buying
1,800,000 pounds to speculate in Spanish government stock and engineered
a dramatic fall in its value (Wilson, 101).
- One of the reasons for the acumen of the Rothschild's
is that, when you have banks in five countries, you need to have access
to the news before anyone else. Therefore, early on, a courier service
was set up. The Rothschild's attributed their ability to have the scoop
before any king or ruler to their carrier pigeons which flew as far as
Rio de Janeiro. As their business evolved down through the centuries, the
Rothschilds found ways to carry information to all parts of the world.
However, during the 18th and 19th centuries, they relied on horse and ships.
As a result of the business they did between themselves, this information
service developed to the point of being considered one of the first intelligence
services. The Rothschild coaches would careen down highways, carrying cash,
securities, litters, and news. Their news service was considered the best
in Europe which prompted other countries to use it. As is the case, "the
mails were not only an instrument for carrying letters but also for inspecting
them (Morton, 92). One wrote, "If the breeze didn't carry Rothschild
pigeons, it pushed Rothschild sails. 'The English ministry,' wrote Talleyrand
to Louis Philippe's sister, 'is always informed of everything by Rothschild
ten to twelve hours before the dispatches of the British ambassador arrive.
This is necessarily so because the vessels used by the Rothschild couriers
belong to that house take no passengers and sail in all weathers'"
- The Rothschild's were very instrumental in setting up
the first Bank of the United States and financing the War of 1812. While
the British were successful in burning the White House, thanks to Andrew
Jackson, and in burning other important buildings and vital documents,
they were routed out of America in the War of 1812. As president, Andrew
Jackson vetoed the charter for the Bank of the U.S. According to Niall
Ferguson in his book, The House of Rothschild's - Money's Prophets,
- No sooner had the Rothschild's appeared on the American
scene then Governor McNutt of Massachusetts, was denouncing 'Baron R' for
having 'the blood of Judas and Shylock flow[ing] in his veins, and ...unit[ing]
the qualities of both his countrymen. The first and second central banks
of the United States employed the Rothschild's as agents.
- The Rothschild's did bullion brokering and refining,
accepting and discounting commercial bills, direct trading in commodities,
foreign exchange dealing and arbitrage, as well as, insurance. Recall that
it was the British Rothschild's who financed Cecil Rhodes and DeBeers Diamonds,
becoming the biggest shareholders. Rhodes purchased the two farms from
the DeBeers brothers (they were Boers), where diamonds were found for 6,300
- In 1905, the largest diamond in the world, weighing 530.20
carats, the Cullinan Diamond, was found. It was cut into 9 large stones
which include the Cullinan I at 530.20 carats, which is now part of the
British royal scepter. (I remember the first time I saw it in 1978, I could
not believe it was real and asked the guard. He looked at this naive American
and said in a very dry tone, "Yes Mum.") The Cullinan II is 317.40
carats and is in the British Imperial State Crown. The Cullinan III weighs
94.40 carats and is in Queen Mary's Crown. Both the Cullinan IV at 63.60
carats and the Cullinan V at 18.80 carats are worn by Queen Elizabeth II
as pieces of jewelry. Note that 5 of the 9 Cullinan stones belong to the
British royal family. What would you give the Lord Rothschild in return
for these baubles?
- It was the Rothschild's who financed the railroad system
of Europe and the Suez Canal for Britain. Prime Minister Disraeli formed
a very close relationship with the Rothschilds, even becoming "uncle"
to their children. At one point Disraeli, to avoid government hassle and
"seize the moment" took it upon himself to ask the Rothschilds
for a 4M pound loan to finance the Suez Canal for the Queen. Their terms
were 5% with a 2 12% commission. In a letter to the Queen, Disraeli wrote,
"Four millions sterling! And almost immediately. There was only one
firm that could do it -- Rothschilds....the Khedive [canal] is yours, Madam"
(Wilson, 236). Disraeli was elevated to the House of Lords, as the Earl
- In 1870, the Rothschilds formed the world's second largest
oil producer, the Caspian and Black Sea Petroleum Company. In 1910 Henry
Ditterding (Royal Dutch Petroleum) and Marcus Samuel (Shell Transport and
Trading Company) began acquiring Caucasian oilfields. In 1912, they approached
De Rothschild Freres, who had his own oil fields in the Caspian and Black
Seas. The new company became known as Royal Dutch Shell in 1912, and is
the second largest oil company in the world.
- There is much to be said about the Rothschilds' cunning
and unscrupulous ways, yet they have become the bankers to all the crown
heads of Europe: Britain's King George IV, French King Louis XVIII, the
Duke of York, the Duke of Clarence, Prince Leopold of Saxe-Coburg, the
Duke of Kent who married Victoria of Saxe-Coburg from whom Queen Victoria
was birthed, numerous members of the most important families of the Austro-Hungarian
aristocracy, including the Thurn und Taxis family. According to Ferguson,
"When Europe was restored, the Rothschild's established a network
of private financial relationships with key public figures. The image of
the Rothschilds as the centre of a web of 'corruption' would become a recurrent
one in the years after 1830. But it was not, in reality, the 'bribes, loans,
and other favors they bestowed on men like Metternich which made them the
dominant force in international finance after 1815, it was the sheer scale
-- and sophistication -- of their operations" (Ferguson, 162).
- I have not begun to scratch the surface, concerning the
amazing feats this family has achieved. The various biographies that I
have read contain descriptions of their mansions, assets, wineries, tamed
zebras, patronage of the arts and music, power, and political and financial
achievements. From very little means, they are considered almost royal.
They have their own crest of arms, as a result of the titles bestowed upon
them by numerous royal families, and they are socially connected to all
of the world's royal and non-royal elite. A number of Rothschilds were
instrumental in populating Palestine back in the late 1890s, were involved
with the first Zionist Congress in Basel in 1893, and with the founding
of the State of Israel, as well as financing it. Edmond de Rothschild worked
closely with Lord Balfour and Lloyd George in getting the Balfour Declaration
to create the State of Israel.
- The Rothschilds financed Britain's Anglo-Boer War for
control of the vast diamond mines on Boer property. For that, Nathaniel
Rothschild in 1885 was given the title of Lord Rothschild. He became the
first Jewish peer in England. A. N. Knuth says this about their vast wealth,
- The Annual Encyclopedia of 1868 records that Jacob (Paris
House of Rothschild) had been established in Paris in 1812 with a capital
of $200,000 by Mayer Amschel, and at that time of his death in 1868, 56
years later, his fortune was estimated at over $300M and his yearly income
at $40M. In comparison it may be significant to note that there was at
this time no fortune in all America that equaled only one year's income
of Jacob (Baron James de Rothschild (70).
- In short, the Rothschild's created modern banking, international
banking, global bonds, and every other type of finance available. Today,
they are busy "privatizing" the assets of the world and taking
control of toll roads, water companies, electric companies, space, infrastructure,
etc. It is the central banking system that controls the monetary system
of the world, as well as, the investors in the central banks, including
royalty such as the King and Queen of England and other international bankers,
of which the Schiffs, Morgan's, Lazard Freres, and Rothschild's are part.
- In 1852, Nathan began reining gold and silver for the
Royal Mint and the Bank of England. Today, at the Bank of England, the
Rothschild's fix the world's daily price of gold. Lastly, CitiGroup is
a financial conglomerate, as well as, an international bank. It was instrumental
in getting the Congress to repeal the Glass-Steagall Act, a 1933 law that
put "firewalls" between banking and brokerage activities to avoid
another 1929 crash. CitiGroup was instrumental in helping to facilitate
the crash of the NASDAQ. The reason why your brokers do not know anything
about gold (i.e. the only protection against a fiat paper money system)
is that they work for brokerage companies that are either controlled by
the Rothschilds or by others like the Rothschilds. Like most everyone else
brokers do not know, or even care, as long as they have jobs.
- Former Federal Reserve Chairman, Paul Volcker went to
work for the Rothschild's, as chairman of the European investment banking
firm, J. Rothschild, Wolfensohn and Co. from 1992 until 1995. It should
be noted that the former World Bank President James A. Wolfensohn, sold
his company to Kissinger and Co. when he became president of the World
Bank in 1995.
- San Jose Mercury reported in January 12, 1992 that the
longtime chief executive of BankCal invited Edmond Rothschild to purchase
the bank as a minority shareholder. Through manipulation, he carried out
a series of actions, which dropped the value of BankCal's stock drastically.
Meanwhile financial advisors and securities analysts convinced small stockholders
to sell their BankCal stock at rock bottom prices for as little as $16
a share. Rothschild bought some at that price but had others buy for him
at bottom prices, so that he had a majority of stock. He then sold the
majority of shares to the Japanese and made a killing. Richard Freemon,
a large stockholder, who had sold, sued Rothschild and the directors for
cheating him on his stock. The $25M law suit was settled out of court.
This has been their method of operation. Are the Rothschilds only ones?
No, but they appear to be the chief power.
- The reason for discussing the Rothschilds is that, apart
from the Queen, I believe they control -- or have more control than the
other powerful families on Planet Earth--the entire monetary system of
the world. While there is some natural supply and demand in the market,
I think we need to understand that most of the market changes are orchestrated
to take from us--and transfer it to the international bankers. Rarely is
there mention of them or do you see a photograph of them and their endeavors--that
is because they own many newspapers.
- A number of years ago, the DeBeers Diamond cartel came
under the control of the Oppenheimers who also control Rhodes gold-mining
company, the Anglo-American Corporation. Interestingly enough, it was the
first Rothschild, Amschel Mayer Bauer, who went to work for the Oppenheimers
in Frankfurt after his father died. Perhaps an old debt is being repaid.
- Today the Rothschild's are worldwide, involved in investment
banking, debt-related financing, restructuring, privatization, equity capital
markets, oil and gas, mining, mergers and acquisitions, and private placements.
Some of the deals include convertible preferred stock for the Chicago Climate
Exchange; restructuring for France Telecom, Rio Tinto, Euro Disney, and
Vivendi; debt advisory to Royal Ahold, Texas Pacific Group, and South African
Airways; and privatization for Beijing Capital International Airport, the
Government of Peru, the Government of Chile, the Government of Denmark,
Air Portugal, and the Philippines National Transmission Company. Oil and
Gas include acquisitions in Royal Dutch Petroleum, Petrochemical and gas
stations by Sinopec, and Xstrata. Regarding mergers and acquisitions, out
of the top investment banks by country Rothschilds rank #4 in France, #1
in the UK, #4 in Germany, #1 in Italy, #7 in Australia, #2 in Latin America
and #9 in Spain. The Rothschilds have banks all over the world, providing
a seamless connection worldwide. They operate three different banks in
the UK, besides Frankfurt, Zurich, Moscow, and North America, as well as,
banks in Brazil, Mexico, Australia, Asia, and South Africa.
- IN CONCLUSION
- In short, this newsletter is about power to control and
power to determine value. This letter by no means exhausts the topic. It
would take a sizeable book to discuss other powerful families, like the
Rockefellers, the Schiffs, the Morgans, the DuPonts, the Astors, the Li's
from China, and the British royal family, in addition to the Carnegies,
Mellon's, and Vanderbilts.
- In light of the rapid drop in the price of gold and oil,
and to answer the question posed earlier of "Who controls value?"
we see one name: Rothschild. When we want to discuss the value of gold
-- it is set by the Rothschilds on a daily basis. When we want to discuss
the value of oil -- they own one of the largest oil companies in the world.
And, when we want to discuss interest rates, they are one of the controlling
families that own the Federal Reserve Bank, with equally great power over
the Bank of England.
- We have just seen a major shift--or reversal--in two
major trends that have been dominant since 2000: gold and oil. Is this
temporary? At every turn we hear of more wars. There are those who say
Bush is preparing for an October strike against Iran. If that is the case,
the drop in oil and gold was an excuse to skim off the top of the world's
assets (yours and mine). It appears that we are in a time of perpetual
war for war is a transfer of wealth and an opportunity to finance both
sides. There is nothing in this world that is not affected by the supreme
power of a few major families worldwide. Furthermore, most of the major
political players today are members of one of Rhode's secret societies:
the Council on Foreign Relations, the Royal Institute for International
Affairs, and the Pilgrims Society.
- In conclusion, we get to participate in the "crumbs
from the master's table." To quote King Solomon, the richest man in
the world, "The thing that has been, it is that which shall be and
that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing
under the sun" (Eccl. 1:9).

- Dear Treasured Friends,
- Covering global meetings for ten years was a real milestone
for me. Now, we have just completed our 11th year and are entering our
12th year. During the last 11 years, the world has vastly changed. My first
book was Prince Charles the Sustainable Prince, which dealt with the role
of Prince Charles and his behind-the-scenes role in making sure Agenda
21 was agreed to at the 1992 Rio "Earth Summit". At the heart
of Agenda 21 is sustainable development, which is involved with reducing
the population of the world through abortion, homosexuality (that lifestyle
does not pro-create) and euthanasia. Plagues, viruses, wars, and natural
disasters reduce the population as well. It appears that we are in the
midst of increased plagues, viruses, wars, and natural disasters! Also,
the prince has encouraged ways to change the structure of government through
public-private partnerships. At the 60th General Assembly meeting of the
United Nations, which was held in September, the programme of action highlighted
both sustainable development and public-private partnership as being the
two key pillars of its agenda today.
- In 1994 when I first started covering global meetings,
I did so because the United Nations was interested in floating the idea
of global taxation. Eleven years later, the UN General Assembly approved
the idea of a tax on airline tickets. France, I am told, recently announced
it was adding a tax on every airline ticket sold in France. It was French
president Jacques Chirac who called for a global tax on airline tickets
at the January, 2005 World Economic Forum. He then called for a tax on
airline tickets at the Gleneagles G8 meeting in July. I asked him what
kind of taxation we could expect, if an airline tax went well and he told
me that they had a number of forms of taxation planned. A global tax was
also discussed by Frances Prime Minister, Dominique De Villepin at the
UN. He told me that there were 66 countries that supported the idea.
- What does a global tax signify? It signifies that there
are no more barriers between the nation-states--that the countries of the
world are now ONE. For a number of years, I have maintained that world
government is not coming, IT IS. WE ARE IN WORLD GOVERNMENT. Little by
little our freedoms are being reduced and altered. There are changes all
around with regard to the structure of local government. Actually, it was
President Nixon's Executive Order 11647 that divided the U.S. into 10 regions.
He then appointed an administrator over each region who is directly accountable
to him only. Over the years, the government has stripped the States of
their Constitutional powers--States demand that their monies now be sent
to Washington, so they can be sent back to the States that need them. Unfortunately,
ELECTED government has no power, as the APPOINTED level of REGIONAL OR
METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENTS are now receiving the tax monies that the States
were suppose to get. When you consider the U.N. is appointed government,
it all comes neatly together.
- When I look at how fast things are moving, all I have
to do is take a look at what I wrote in UN Watch! in the September/October,
2004 edition issued in January, 2005. At that time I wrote about the power
of the British Commonwealth. At the international level, the Commonwealth
organization, which is comprised of 54 British countries and former colonies,
are allowed to operate inside the United Nations. As such, they have 38
potential votes at the Bank for International Settlements, 2 at the Group
of Eight, 54 at the United Nations, 45 at the International Monetary Fund,
46 at the World Trade Organization, 44 at the World Bank and 13 in the
Free Trade Areas of the Americas. When you look this hemisphere, Canada,
the Bahamas, Guyana, and other countries are members of the Commonwealth.
Even in our own hemisphere, we are out voted by 13 countries! For now,
the only place where the U.S. is not outvoted is at the Security Council---that
is until they change the composition. Countries, which are possible candidates
for admission, include the following Commonwealth countries: Canada, Australia,
New Zealand, India, Pakistan and Malaysia.
- The combined November/December, 2004-January/February,
2005 issue was on the Reform of the United Nations. The world has moved
from "common security" in which we all have a concern to one
of "collective security", which basically says that all of the
countries of the world have an obligation to come to the rescue of the
people in a failed state, where they do not get the adequate treatment
that they would in a non-failed state. Again, using humanitarianism as
the core, it is no longer the state that matters but individuals--so much
for the UN being a place where countries could come together to talk out
- The next issue was on the "Growing Reach of the
World Economic Forum." I have covered the World Economic Forum every
year since 1998 with the exception of 1999. In my opinion, it equals the
Bildebergers, as it is a forum where the
- CEO's of the world can interact in political issues and
even take part in them. Through public-private partnerships, the world
has moved from individual nation-states into global corporate fascism,
where corporations are now buying out governments. In this new structure,
there is no representative government. In that issue, I went back 3 years
and looked at the "inner core" of participants who are members
of the Council on Foreign Relations-CFR, the Tri-Lateral Commission-TLC,
the Royal Institute for International Affairs-RIIA, now called "The
Chatham House", and the Prince of Wales International Business Leaders
Forum, which also has connections with the London School of Economics.
- The July/August through November/December, 2005 issue
took a hard look at how natural disasters are being used to further integrate
the countries of the world. It provided a very thorough analysis of the
hurricanes in the Gulf States and addressed the question of planned and
managed disasters as a way of economic benefit and gain.
- Bottom-line--the above newsletters have described a very
powerful global mafia that, basically, runs the world. What can "we
the people" do? Knowledge has always been power. If you operate out
of ignorance, you just might sell the family farm! Although the rich and
powerful have always run the world, we are now seeing and identifying the
forces that run the world in our time. Is this world government part of
Biblical prophecy, where the world is going to "end"? I don't
know. I do know that Jesus Christ was born in the middle of the world government
of His time, which was called "Rome." There have been lots of
other conquerors, who wanted to be king of the world. Napoleon was one
of them. Who is the world dictator of our time? While we can identify those
who are part of the world governmental structure as being member of the
Bildebergers, CFR, and TLC, we need to go higher. In all my research, I
find that there is another very powerful level of people: the international
bankers which includes the Rothschilds, Kuhns, Loebs, etc. And, we must
not leave out the world's royal families. But who in particular? I would
have to point to Prince Charles. Now we must remember that his father,
Prince Philip and Prince Bernhard (now deceased) of Holland, started the
World Wildlife Fund, which has been instrumental in putting forth the value
of the environment over the value of man. Who else? I don't know. This
is as high as I can see or understand. Is there an occult power behind
these people? I believe the answer is yes.
- Beginning with the Garden of Eden, we have seen how Satan
has usurped his power with the desire of becoming "King of the World".
The evil side of man has never gone away. We live in a fallen world. However,
in OUR time, the structure of the nation-state has been stripped away.
At every turn, our government is passing laws that adhere to the international
level of government. So, how do we live?
- Again, if we have knowledge of things that are usurping
our freedoms, it will allow us to make better decisions. I can tell you
that the knowledge that I have gained on the international level has helped
me tremendously with decisions that I have had to make and with how I invest
client monies. When you understand this evil agenda, you will not have
the rug pulled out from under you, and you will not be shocked, or at least
as shocked, when you need to respond. Furthermore, this knowledge allows
you to pray more effectively for your family, for the country, and for
yourself. The Bible clearly tells us that it is the "effective and
fervent prayers of a righteous man that avails much" James 5:16.
- For those of you who received the June, 2005 letter,
you read about the heartfelt encounter I had with Ukrainian president Victor
Yushchenko. Only God could have provided the opportunity to touch his heart.
At the UN60th General Assembly, Venezuelan president Victor Chavez gave
a press briefing and God put it on my heart to tell him not to "judge
the American people by Pat Robertson's heart." A colleague of mine
said he was visibly touched. This hard hearted Marxist who probably has
not known real love in his life, was touched by God in an unexpected way,
in an unexpected place.
- In the past year, I covered the World Economic Forum,
the spring World Bank meeting, the Bank for International Settlements in
Basel, Switzerland and the G8 meeting in Gleneagles, Scotland. While in
England, I had three speaking engagements. I then spent a week at the UN
in New York City. In addition to the UN related trips, I spoke three times
in Louisiana and Mississippi. One of those times included explaining the
whole agenda of world government to Judge Roy Moore. To be honest I don't
know what kind of impact it had on him, since a number of his aides are
more liberal and globalist in their beliefs than he is. I then spoke at
Freedom 21's conference in Las Vegas and then at the Agri-Women's meeting
in Monterrey, California. Lastly, I presented a paper on sustainable development
at a conference on culture and diversity at Oral Roberts University. Finally,
I was able to be present at was the arrival of Prince Charles and Camilla
at the dinner given by the President and Mrs. Bush at the White House.
- I have analyzed Prince Charles' speeches, given while
in America. I was shocked at the information I learned. Furthermore, he
and the Duchess went to New Orleans, where he announced that some of his
people were at a planning meeting given by Mississippi Governor Haley Barber
last month. The prince announced that they are all working on how to rebuild
the area. Just recently someone called and told me that a woman from New
Orleans who was testifying in front of a congressional commission on Katrina
wanted to know why Prince Charles could buy a house in an area that she
was told she cannot inhabit. These, indeed, are interesting days.
- Over the years, it has been your support that has helped
us do some of things that we have done. You have planted a seed in my ministry.
I have tried to be faithful to God, to you and to the mandate, which I
believe I have been given. I have seen how God has allowed me to touch
two interesting world leaders this year and pray that I will have more
opportunities in the future to be used in the life of world leaders. I
cannot do that unless I am at the international level. The Women's Group
has a credit card balance for 2005 which does not include the trips and
conferences for 2006. In fact, the G8 will be held in Moscow for the first
time. While I subsidize in many ways through my investment business, I
rely on your kindness to help accomplish some of what has been described
above. I basically am asking you to SEED into this ministry. If I pay for
everything, then you do not have that opportunity. Please help us by ordering
books and materials or by giving gifts which are tax deductible.
- How will we live in a world in which the freedoms, which
were given to us through the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, are being
demolished? How will we respond, when our jobs are outsourced? How will
we respond, when our children tell us that they are global citizens? How
will we respond, when we are told that the elderly cannot produce and,
therefore, cannot keep their space on planet Earth? How will we respond
when they tell us that Christianity is out of date and old fashioned and
that we have to pledge allegiance to a new global religion?
- Most recently, I was on a farm program in which I discussed
world government. A farmer called in and asked what my problem was. I told
him that I did not have the problem, he did. The farmers are on the front-lines
of loss of property rights and will lose the farm, when our government
eliminates all of their subsidies and tariffs to come into compliance with
the WTO. I told him it was time to get another tractor trailer parade to
the Capitol and protest. Are we going to stick our heads in the sand and
pretend that it is okay to take our property and our rights? Ask the people
of New Orleans. In the testimony of Dyan French-Cole who is from New Orleans,
she told a Congressional panel the following:
- I live in America, ya all. I am free. Does that sound
strange to anybody in 2005? I hope not. I have lived through thousands
of hurricanes. Why are we so excited about hurricanes. Katrina didn't do
this. The "isms" of America did this. [Those isms say] we need
more money. Please, someone order up more paper with ink on it and put
denominations on it. Is it really going to be about this--capitalism? My
neighbors want some answers. They want to know where the children are.
What insane group of people separated our children from parents? Where
are the deceased? The first person accused of looting was looking for his
son. They want to know where our rights as Americans are. Are these folk
coming to fix us? We want to know why we [America] can go to the tsunami
and to New York and get things straight, but why we can't get it straight
in New Orleans? They want to know that how is it that we created some agency
to buy our land because it is not good enough and that they can do something
to it and make it good enough to sell back to us? What kind of insanity
is that? It is almost like [what] Christopher Columbus [did to the Indian-owned
land]. I own it, but why do I have to sell it to someone at slave wages?
My house is not for sale. Please let whoever these people are know that
New Orleans is not for sale. We are not going to give up our property.
Who comes to rescue with guns instead of life vests? No supplies-- nothing
to help the handicap? Why is it mandatory that we leave-at gunpoint? That
is not America. What are we doing here? One of the problems is that Mr.
Trump came months ago and has decided that he wants Padres Street. Prince
Charles, [wants to buy] property on the street where my independent living
mentally ill community is- where they say I need to wear a mask? Why is
Prince Charles trying to buy a house in New Orleans that you all say[should
not exist]. It isn't making sense. Will someone explain it to me. Why were
we held hostage and not allowed to rescue our people?
- In the Katrina paper I wrote, I discussed that I felt
New Orleans would be set up as a sustainable city-with regional government
and funded through public-private partnerships. It appears that I am right.
This lady's testimony just confirmed my suspicions. Is New Orleans the
US model for sustainable development for the rest of the U.S. and for third
world countries? When will it be your turn or mine? Take prime land, move
the owners off and then let the casinos and the luxury hotels buy the land
at a rock bottom prices with the promise of paying higher real estate tax
and proving jobs. That is exactly what happened in the Kelo vs. New London
where the Supreme Court ruled that the city has the right to use eminent
domain to force the highest and best use of property that would create
jobs and increase revenue. This breaches the sacredness of personal property
rights as they are now subject to the highest bidder-the isms.
