The Banking Elite Are Not Only Stealing Our Wealth, But They Are Also Stealing Our Minds by smartknowledgeu 01/03/2013
In the past several years, people worldwide are slowly beginning to shed the web of deceit woven by the banking elite and learning that many topics that were mocked by the mainstream media as conspiracy theories of the tin-foil hat community have now been proven to be true beyond a shadow of a doubt. First there was the myth that bankers were upstanding members of the community that contributed positively to society. Then in 2009, one of their own, Paul Volcker, in a rare momentary lapse of sanity, stated “I wish someone would give me one shred of neutral evidence that financial innovation has led to economic growth — one shred of evidence.” He then followed up this declaration by stating that the most positive contribution bankers had produced for society in the past 20 years was the ATM machine. Of course since that time, we have learned that Wachovia Bank laundered $378,400,000,000 of drug cartel money, HSBC Bank failed to monitor £38,000,000,000,000 of money with potentially dirty criminal ties, United Bank of Switzerland illegally manipulated LIBOR interest rates on a regular basis for purposes of profiteering, and though they have yet to be prosecuted, JP Morgan bank, Goldman Sachs bank, & ScotiaMocatta bank are all regularly accused of manipulating gold and silver prices on nearly a daily basis by many veteran gold and silver traders. Over the past several years, many of the things that have been passed on to us as “truth” both in schools and in the media regarding financial principles have now been exposed as pure lies. We are in the process of coming full circle with the bankers and banks that were once consistently, regularly and deservedly vilified by US Presidents and US Congressmen in the late 1800s and early 1900s as “vipers and thieves” and as “evil institutions” that “impoverished and ruined the [American] people”. During the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s’, banking jobs, due to their high compensation and pay, remained the most highly sought after positions among recent MBA grads, and Presidents today still falsely laud bankers for their character (i.e. President Obama on Jamie Dimon: he’s “one of the smartest bankers we’ve got”). However, throughout history, we have often experienced cycles when the truth predominates for
a long period, followed by a period when lies predominated for many years, and then ultimately followed by a period when a return to truth was ultimately realized once again. Consider the case of Christopher Columbus, who historian Samuel Eliot Morison correctly identified in 1954, despite being a courageous explorer, as also undoubtedly an unconscionable murderer: “The cruel policy initiated by Columbus and pursued by his successors resulted in complete genocide” of native Indians in Cuba, Hispaniola and other places Columbus visited during his trek across the Atlantic. However, as time passed, the truth about Columbus was washed clean by American storytellers, and Columbus incredulously morphed from a genocidal mass murderer into a “hero” admired by millions of American school children for his “discovery” of America. Consequently, the US government followed up this revisionist delusional accounting of Columbus by bestowing him with the honor of a national holiday, Columbus Day. Finally, as the cycle of truth came full circle as it often does, and thousands of Americans learned of Columbus's genocidal activities, the US government responded to this movement of truth by revoking the status of Columbus Day as an official national holiday in America. This week, as we observe a Bloomberg journalist submit an article titled “UBS Libor Manipulation Deserves the Death Penalty”, I am confident that the circle of truth about banks and the banking industry's despicable transgressions against humanity will once again return to its rightful place as common knowledge among the masses and not just among the few. Though the banking elite are now increasingly being exposed for their criminal activities against humanity in their theft of citizens’ wealth, rarely is another one of their greatest transgressions, their theft of citizens’ minds and the process by which they target and transform young adults into docile, obedient creatures through institutional academia, ever discussed. Below, please find a video of how children are targeted at a young age with psychotropic drugs, Skinner operant and Pavlov stimulusresponse behavioral modification, and outcome based education (OBE) in the institutional schooling system to literally “dumb down” the critical thinking skills of young adults and turn them into zombielike unthinking robots. Through behavioral modification and the heavy use of drugs, the banking elite are not only stealing wealth globally at this current time, but also stealing the minds of children to ensure that they will mature into obedient citizens of the state with very little capacity to exert their free-will and determine for themselves the dirty truth of the global monetary system and of our consequent enslavement. If you do not know of the intimate connection between the banking elite and their foray into, and their control of the global education system, then the below video is for you.

JP Morgan The Man Who Shaped Our World For The Worse by James Corbett corbettreport.com March 08, 2014 Every era has its kingmakers, its wheeler-dealers, its string-pullers, its financiers, and its master villains. They are not difficult to identify when you know what to look for. In our own era we can look to someone like Donald Rumsfeld for an example of such a figure. No matter what New World Order cornerstone of the past half century you peer under, it seems you will find some trace of Rumsfeld slithering around beneath it. He was the youngest and oldest Defense Secretary in American history, presiding over the development of the cruise missile and the B-1 bomber in the former stint and the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq in the latter. He brought Dick Cheney into the White House during his tenure in the Ford Administration, and then collaborated with him throughout the Reagan era on top secret "continuity of government" contingency plans for suspension of the constitution during times of emergency (presumably the same c.o.g. plans that they implemented and carried out as Defense Secretary and Vice President on 9/11). He engaged in the infamous on-camera handshake and meet-andgreet with Saddam Hussein in 1983, back when Hussein was America's golden boy in the Middle East. He acted as CEO, President, and chairman of G.D. Searle & Company, helping it to win FDA approval for aspartame despite serious health concerns raised by clinical trials, then helping to sell Searle to Monsanto and personally pocketing an estimated $12 million in the process. He sat on the board of the Swiss-based engineering company ABB during the time the company won a contract to provide the design and components for North Korea's own nuclear reactor, which it later parlayed into its nuclear weapons program. He sat on the board of
Gilead Sciences Inc., the developer of Tamiflu, from 1997 until 2001, amassing holdings in the company that ensure that he is set to personally benefit from any future flu pandemic. And even by the official fairytale account of 9/11, Rumsfeld's staggering refusal to act in any meaningful way during the greatest crisis in modern American history (calmly proceeding with his regularly scheduled briefings as the crisis unfolded and remaining out of contact with subordinates who were desperately attempting to communicate with him) would alone be enough to indict him for misprision of treason. This is what the career of an elite super-gopher looks like. Like some evil twin of Forrest Gump, we find Donald Rumsfeld at the scene of nearly every major crime of the past half century, finding ways to personally profit and/or advance the globalist agenda. And yet, as impressive as Rumsfeld's credentials as wheeler-dealer of our era are, they pale in comparison to the man who towered over late 19th and early 20th century America: J. P. Morgan. Although remembered today mainly by way of the banking giant that still bears his name (and indirectly through the Monopoly character "Uncle Moneybags" that is said to be based on him), Morgan's influence over his own era is not well-remembered today, even as the shadow of that influence continues to cast its dark cloud over our own era. John Pierpont Morgan, or "Pierpont" as he preferred to be called, was born in Hartford, Connecticut in 1837 to Junius Spencer Morgan, a successful banker and financier, and Juliet Pierpont, daughter of John Pierpont, a fiery Unitarian preacher whose social activism forced him to resign from the pulpit. If there is any moment from Morgan's early life that prove particularly telling from today's standpoint, it is perhaps his choice of "hero" for a high school graduating essay: Napoleon Bonaparte. This is not from any military prowess on the part of the corpulent Morgan; when conscripted to fight in the civil war in 1861, he paid a substitute (whom he called the "other" J.P. Morgan) to fight in his place for $300, which is coincidentally the exact amount that he spent on cigars in just one year (1863). No, his choice of Napoleon as his personal hero was instead indicative of his outsized ambition and dreams of grandeur; dreams that, save for the title of "Emperor" and the crown to place upon his head, he would eventually realize. Morgan rode his father's coattails into the banking business, starting as an accountant at a New York firm that was a subsidiary to his father's own firm. A story that is oft-told in the feel-good "Biography" biographies of his early youth and cunning revolves around an assignment he was given as a junior accountant to study the cotton industry in New Orleans. As the legend has it, while there he encountered the captain of a ship hauling a load of Brazilian coffee that had arrived in port without a buyer. The captain was willing to sell the haul on the cheap to get rid of it before it spoiled, but Morgan didn't have the money to buy it himself. Instead, he used his firm's credit without the authorization to do so. His bosses were incensed, sending an angry telegram rebuking him for playing fast and loose with the company's finances, but by the time the telegram arrived, Morgan had already personally sold all of the coffee to local merchants, making a tidy profit in the process. Supposedly, this story is meant to teach us that Morgan was a hard-driving businessman with a nose for a good deal and nerves of steel...or something like that. What it certainly does show is that his sense of propriety and ethics, to whatever extent they existed, were no impediment to his mania for making a quick buck...especially on someone else's dime. In the ensuing decades, this reckless spirit and the monetary head start that his background and connections afforded him were to help him amass one of the largest fortunes in history. In the process, he became one of the most powerful men in the country. By 1860 he had started J. Pierpont Morgan and Company, acting as an agent for his father's firm. By 1864 he was a partner in his own firm, and by
1871 he had partnered with Anthony J. Drexel of Philadelphia, one of the architects of the modern era of global finance. After Drexel's death, the firm was renamed "J.P. Morgan and Company," and Morgan had already cemented a name for himself as one of the richest and savviest financiers in the country. His trademark move was to take over failing businesses, rejigger their structures and operations, modernize their practices, and restore them to profitability. As compensation, he always took a seat on the board, meaning that by the latter part of the 19th century he was on the boards of numerous companies all across the country, giving him further leverage for his next takeovers. The process was dubbed "Morganization." The list of businesses that he helped to finance is bewildering. He made a name for himself selling the largest block of stock ever publicly sold in 1879, when he helped railroad magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt sell a significant stake in the New York Central Railroad without driving down the stock price. He completed numerous railroad reorganizations in the 1880s, and by the time the Panic of 1893 hit, he was the one the rail tycoons turned to reorganize their railways and get them running again. He helped negotiate the largest business mergers in history to that point, including the infamous merger of Federal Steel and Carnegie Steel (amongst others) in 1901 that created United States Steel, and the merger of several leading agricultural giants into International Harvester. He financed Adolph Simon Ochs' 1896 purchase of the New York Times. Also in 1896, as the US Treasury was running out of gold, he formed a syndicate that included the Rothschilds to purchase 30-year bonds in exchange for $62 million worth of gold. The dollar stabilized and the syndicate immediately resold the bonds at a marked up price, pocketing a tidy profit in the process and raising public anger over the growing power of the financial class that increasingly held the pursestrings of the government. Throughout it all, Morgan retained the wanton disregard for everything but the bottom line that had served him so well during the Brazilian coffee venture at the beginning of his career. In 1892, he presided over the merger of Thomas Edison's Edison General Electric and the Thomas-Houston Electric Company to form General Electric, a firm large enough to take on Morgan competitor George Westinghouse. In 1900, would-be Edison rival Nikola Tesla began working on what he envisioned as a world system of wireless electrical transmission, a working model of which was able to light 200 electric lamps at a distance of 25 miles. When Morgan, the backing investor, found out that the plan was to use this system to create a worldwide network of free wireless electricity, funding was cut, and Tesla fell into poverty and obscurity until his death in 1943. For Morgan, the crisis of free energy had been averted, and his General Electric could safely go on profiting from providing electricity to an increasingly power-hungry nation into perpetuity. Of all the gambits in Morgan's storied career, however, the most important came in 1907, during what came to be known as the Panic of 1907. It started on October 21, when the Morgan-controlled National Bank of Commerce announced it was refusing to act as a clearinghouse for the Knickerbocker Trust Company, a Morgan competitor and one of the largest financial institutions in the country at the time. The next day, the Trust faced a run as customers lined up to withdraw their funds. The bank was forced to suspend operations in the afternoon, and by the 24th a domino effect had caused a chain of failures throughout the entire trust company sector. The panic spread quickly, and soon the entire banking sector and stock market was facing a complete meltdown.
So began frenzied weeks of wheeling and dealing, organized by Morgan, to draw together the funds to keep the banks open and the stock exchange trading. Narrowly averting one crisis after another, at one point Morgan locked 120 prestigious bank officials and trust company executives in his library to force them to reach a deal on a $25 million loan to keep the country's weaker institutions afloat. When the dust had finally settled, a new consensus had emerged around two points: firstly, that a new monetary system was needed in the United States to prevent such a thing from ever happening again, and secondly that J.P. Morgan had almost single-handedly saved the country with his "heroic" efforts to raise the capital to keep the banks open and the markets operating. It was not until years later that anyone dared to suggest in public that Morgan had deliberately caused the panic in a type of financial false flag. The charge was aired in the 25th April 1949 edition of Life Magazine, where Frederick Lewis Allen wrote an article on Morgan that included the subhead "Did Morgan precipitate the panic?" "...certain chroniclers have arrived at the ingenious conclusion that the Morgan interests took advantage of the unsettled conditions during the autumn of 1907 to precipitate the panic, guiding it shrewdly as it progressed so that it would kill off rival banks and consolidate the pre-eminence of the banks within the Morgan orbit." But despite citing some of the evidence that led many to this conclusion, Allen dutifully poo-pooed it: "To this hypothesis, the most obvious answer, given over and over again by bankers, is that no banker in his senses encourages a bank panic. That would be like dropping a match in a powder keg: he would be too likely to go up in the explosion himself." Certainly the Panic of 1907 was a tense situation for everyone. Would Morgan really have set a ball like that rolling simply in order to kill off some rival banks and businesses (including Westinghouse)? Of course not. But would he have done it to consolidate the entire monetary system of the United States under the control of himself and his banking associates? You bet your bottom dollar he would. To understand what the panic of 1907 was all about, we have to understand that the crisis and resulting loss of faith in the public was parlayed into a call for action for the government to step in and stabilize the banking sector. After all, men like Morgan and the "money interest" (as the banksters were known in that day) could not be allowed the power to save (or sink) the economy by themselves. This public outcry led to the creation of the National Monetary Commission, a study group headed by Senator Nelson Aldrich, the father-in-law of John D. Rockefeller Jr. and close ally of the Morgan banking interest. The commission's final report called for the creation of a "national reserve association" for the United States to stabilize the banks. It was during the period of the commission's work that Aldrich and the Morgan/Rockefeller interests slipped away to Jekyll Island in the
middle of the night to draft what eventually became the Federal Reserve Act. From Pierpont's perspective, it was doubtless a shame that he never saw the Federal Reserve, the culmination of his entire life's work, come to fruition. He died in March 1913, just months before the passage of the Federal Reserve Act. But Morgan's legacy lives with us to this day, through his namesake, John Pierpont Jr,. who was instrumental in founding the Council on Foreign Relations and ensnaring the apparatus of the State Department and the foreign policy of the country in the Morgan orbit. Pierpont's legacy also lives on in the bank that still bares his name, appropriately enough now wedded to the "Chase" of David Rockefeller's old Chase Manhattan stomping grounds. And, of course, the Morgan influence continues to this day in the Federal Reserve, that institution which he was so instrumental in founding and shaping, that continues to exercise monopoly control over the monetary system of the country in the interest of the banksters.
