We have been repeatedly warned of the threat posed by the big banks to our democracy by a few courageous presidents.

Repeated Warnings

From John Adams to John F. Kennedy, a few courageous presidents have warned us of the threat to democracy posed by the greed and avarice of the big banks. Some of them, like Abraham Lincoln, James A. Garfield and John F. Kennedy, paid for warning us with their lives. Andrew Jackson, a flawed president who did more to disenfranchise and oppress Native Americans than any other president, nevertheless saved the country in 1828-30 from becoming 'owned' by a central bank. What follows are quotes from these brave presidents who knew all too well the evil power of bankers. If you read only one of these quotes, make it Kennedy's He hits the nail squarely on the head.

John Adams

"Banks have done more injury to the religion, morality, tranquility, prosperity, and even wealth of the nation than they have done or ever will do good."

Thomas Jefferson

"The central bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the Pinciples and form of our Constitution. I am an Enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but Coin. If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their Property until their Children will wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered." Sound familiar?

James Madison

"History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance."

Andrew Jackson

"I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of our country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost you charged it to the bank...You are a den of vipers and thieves."

Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln's warning about the power of the banks was downright prophetic:

"I have two great enemies., the southern army in front of me, and the financial institutions, in the rear. Of the two, the one in the rear is the greatest enemy...I see in the future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in ther midst of the war."

James A. Garfield

"Whoever controls the volume of money in any 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."

Theodore Roosevelt

"Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and between corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day."

We could only hope that Barack Obama had even a fraction of the integrity of Theodore Roosevelt.

Woodrow Wilson

"A great industrial nation is controlled buy its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and domionated governments in the world - no longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and vote of the majority, but a goveernment by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men."

Franklin D. Roosevelt

"We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace-business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagopnism, sectionism, war profiteering. They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know that Governement by organized money is just as dangerous as government by organized mob. Never before in history have these forces been united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimopus in their hatred for me - and I welcome their hatred. I should like to have it said of my first administration that in it the forces of selfishness and of lust for power met their match. I shopuld like to haveit said of my second administration that in it these forces met their master."

President Roosevelt survived an assassination attempt during the 1936 campaign when a bullet meant for him killed Anton Cernak, the mayor of Miami, who was riding alongside of ther president in a limosine.

John F. Kennedy

"All problems, depressions, wars, disasters, assassinations, all of them were planned, caused, instigated and implemented by the International Bankers and their attempt to establish a central bank in every country in the world, which they have now done, thanks to corrupt politicians who have been bought and paid for. This is all you need to know about the history of the world."

He didn't say a word about it. Your favorite president - the guy who dropped the A-bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? My personal favorite - Abe Lincoln.

Great job on your star page. Did you Steve that Abe Lincoln before he gotten killed, he signed into law to have a Soldiers Home here in Milwaukee, WI. It the third of the original three ever to be build for the wounded soldiers from the wars especially from the Civil War. Lincoln is one of my favorite president also. Check out my page on Reclaiming Our Heritage At Milwaukee VA Medical Center. They have the most historic buildings on the site. Again, great job on the article.

that was the most critical decision , bombing Japan....it has been subject to ethical judgement.... it killed a lot people but it ended the world war....i think the world war would have persisted if it didn't happen....Filipinos suffered a lot during the world war as we were incapable

It's debatable how much longer the war would have lasted, though it certainly would have gone on for a time. There might be an argument for dropping the first bomb, but the second one? - indefensible.

Great page Steve. Didn't Wilson sign over our future to the banks in 1913 by starting the federal reserve system. I always thought of him as a major banker's friend

Like all good Democrats, Wilson did indeed cave into the banks when they created the Federal Reserve system. Thanks for commenting JA, and a Merry Christmas to you, Michelle and the girls.

The world would have been an entirely different one had Kennedy not been assassinated.

That alone should have served as a wake up call to many.

You are so mright ark, and if Bobby Kennedy had not been assassinated the world would have taken an entirely different direction, because he would have been elected president.

Greed still rides high despite all the warnings - it is on overdrive now! Great article, Steve, and news to me that the issue of banks' greed started from time immemmorial! Not surprising though, as greed seems to be inborn and when one steps out of it, then real life choices beckon us - siva

Indeed how right you are siva. Greed goes way back - witness Jesus throwing the money lenders out of the temple.

Interesting relating development here in the UK. The Lloyds TSB banking group (41% owned by the British govt) has been instructed by the govt to sell-off a significant number of its branches to the Co-operative Bank within the next two years. This is interesting because the Co-op Bank is wholly owned by its account holders, and NOT by any shareholders or other vested interests. Worth watching!

Yes indeed, and your comment about the prophetic nature of Kennedy's speech is underscored by the quote from him above.

Steve: Your pages are remarkable - to put it mildly. You should have a publication of your own, "Kinsman Revelations", or something like that; as long as you stay safe.

Well, Steve, you don't look or sound like any of the descriptions you gave about yourself. How about me, I have been recorded on Facebook as a bitter, twisted, sad old woman with mental health issues. How about that?

Steve,
Amazing site!!!! I'm a texan , born and raised. I've lived in Dallas all my life, and up until 2 years ago I was the typical Bush loving. Conservative. Within my inner circle of family and friends, if you didn't have a copy of the Bush memoirs on the shelf in the study then you must hate america and freedom. But somehow I was able to break free, mainly through my LOVE of history. My transformation began with the Kennedy coup, without which I would still accept the illusion. This led me down the rabbit hole. Its impossible to not be saddened about the missed opportunity to pull back the curtain and reveal Oz. jFK revealed to me the hidden hand. It led me to more in depth research. I have put in at least 250 hours of study, it has become a hobby and I enjoy it. The deeper I look the more apparent it becomes. I had to become active, my conscience won't allow me to do nothing. I knew if I spoke out to family and friends they would think in was crazy. But I know that my conservative Bush backing people, really are good people. Forgive them father for they know not what they do. The evidence will do ALL the heavy lifting, they just don't know it exists. I've recently become active. I started a weekly email list and began incrementally introducing the reality. I will attach my favorite sources that discuss the topic of the day. I always begin a person on one of two topics: JFK and the federal reserve bank... A majority of my email list have responded just as I hoped. One piece at a time, and I've been getting great feedback. So I want you to know that your activism is absolutely helping turn neo conservative Texans into protectors of democracy

Steve,
After I read that last post I went and started reading some of your other topics and I LOVE it. I am not scientist but I have always been drawn to the mysteries of the universe. Are you aware of the documentary "what the bleep do we know"? I've been tripped out by the quantum world since I first read about the double slit experiment, entanglement. But this documentary really tripped me out, in a good way. I watched it 3 times in 3 days. If you are aware of this documentary then I'll have a few deeper questions
