“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws.”
Supposedly this is a quote from Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild. Ignore the distinct possibility that he did not make this statement, but let’s assume the concept, if not the quote, is accurate.
The Federal Reserve and other central banks exercise considerable control over our economies via interest rates, debt creation, QE and more. They create massive profits for the financial industry that in turn purchases many politicians and Presidents.
Now expand the concept into other areas and see if the results ring true.
- Give me control of a nation’s financial systems and I shall own the politicians who make the laws.
Print currencies and buy politicians. Same idea – it is easy!
- Give me control of the FBI investigators and I can avoid prosecution and indictments.
Hmmmm. There was something in the news about this recently…
- Give me control of the voting machines and I care not who the voters in the popular election actually wanted.
In Philadelphia in 2012, 59 districts cast 100.0% of their votes for Obama and the voting machines show that not one person cast their vote for Romney. Strange. Amazing. Unusual. It might happen once in the age of the universe, or again this November in Philadelphia. Still, a vote of 19,605 to zero in 59 districts is difficult to believe, even in strongly democratic districts in urban America.
