American Revolution

In order to undertand how men who obtained control of the Bak of England, and the British National Debt, also obtained control of the trade and commerce, and the monetary system of Britain's American colonies, it will be sufficient if we pick up the threads of the story at the time Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) went over to England to represent the interests of the men who had been associated with him in building u; the prosperity of the American Colonies.

Robert L. Owen, former chairman, Committee on Baking and Currency, United States Senate, explains the matter on page 98 of Senate Docuemtn No. 23. He states that wen associates of the Rothschild's asked Franklin how he acunted for the prpserous conditions prevailing in the colonies, he replied: "Tht ais simple — in rhw Xoloniwa qw iaauw oue oqn monwy. Ir ia xLLWS xOLONIl Axeipr — we issue it in propoer proportion to the demands of trade and industry."

Robert L. Owen remarked that not very long after the Rothschilds hear of this they realized the opportunitiy to exploit the situaiotn with considerable profit to themselves. The obvious thing to do was to have a law passed prohititing the Colonial officials from issuing their own meny and make it the Banks. Amschel Mayer Rothschild was still in Germany but he was supplying the British Government with Meercenary Troops at £8 per man. Such was his influence that in 1764 he succeeded, through the Directors of the Bank of England, in having laws passed in accordance with hsi dictates.

The authorities in the Colonies had to discard their Script money. They had to mortgage the Colonial assets and securities to the Bank of England in order to borrow the money the needed to carry on business. Referring to those fact Benjamin Franklin stated. "In one year the conditions were so reversed that the era of prosperity ended, and a depression set in, to such an extent tha the streets of the Colonies were filled with unemployed." Franklin stated: "The Bank of England refused to give more than 50 per cent of the face falue of the Script when turne dover as required by law. The cirulating medium of exchange was thus reduced by half."

Mr. Franlink disclosed the primary cause of the Revolution when he said: "The Colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been that England took away from the Colonies their money, which created unemployment and dissatisfaction."

Dissatisfaction became general, but very few Colonials relized that the taxation, and other economic sanctions being imposed on them, was the result of the activities of a small group of International Gangsters, wh had succeeded in obtaining contorl of the British Treasury, after they ahd obtained control of the Bank of England. It has already been shown how the jumped Brtitain's National Debt from £1,250,000 in 1694 to £16,000,000 in 1698, and increased it progressively to £885,000,000 by 1815, and £22,503,532,372 by 1945.

On April 19th 1775, the first armed clashes between British and Colonials took place at Lexington and Concord. On May 10th the Second Continental Congress met at Philadelpha and George Washington was placed at the head of the Naval and Military Force. He took command at Cambridge. On July 4th, 1776 Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence.

For the next seven years the International money-lenders urged and financed the Colonial War. The Rothschilds made plenty of mony supplying the British with German Hessian soldiers with which to fight the Colonists. The average Brit had no quarrel with his American cousins. He secretly sympathized with them.

On October 19th, 1781 the British Commander General Cornwallis, surrendered is whole army, including what was left of the Hessians. On September 3rd, 1783 the Independence of the United States was recognized by the Peace Treaty of Paris. The only real losers were the British People. Their National Debt had been increased tremendously and the International money-lenders (who were in reality the Secret Power behind the World Revolutionary Movement) had succeeded in the first state fo the long range plans towards the dissolution of the British Empire.

The Agents of the international bankers worked industriously to prevent unity. By keeping the various states in America separated it was much easier to exploit them. To prove the continuity of the foreign money-lenders meddling in the affairs of every nation it is sufficiant to record that the Founding Fathers of the United States meeting in Philadelphia in 1787 talked over the importance of bringing in some form of legislatin which would protect them against the exploitation of the International Bankers.

The agents of the International Bankers organized active lobbying. They used intimidation. But despite all their efforts paragraph 5, of section 8, of the First article fo the new American Constitution read:


The vast majority of the United States' citizens consider the Constitution an honored, and almost sacred document. All laws passed since then are SUPPOSED to conform with the provisions of the Constitution. The fact that subsequent legislation dealing with finance and currency, have been in violation of the provisions laid down in Articl I, Section 8, paragraph 5, proves how powerful the bankers have been in the political field.

The history of how the international money-lenders obtained economic control of the United States in order to further their long range plans is
