At one time, the United States was a “free democracy”. When did it end? Assigning a precise date to that question would be the subject of considerable debate. However, clearly the beginning-of-the-end traces back to a very specific date: November, 1910.
It was at that time that a cabal of the Western world’s wealthiest and most-powerful oligarchs (mostly bankers) met, in secret, on a private island off the coast of Georgia, named (ironically) Jekyll Island. At that secret meeting they plotted the creation of “the Federal Reserve”.
As author, and noted authority on the Federal Reserve, G. Edward Griffin observed; “the Fed” is a legislated banking cartel, a “hybrid” between a government agency and a private corporation. When it wishes to invoke the authority of government in order to command obedience for its decrees; it cloaks itself in the guise of being a part of that government.
At all other times, it behaves purely as the privately-owned corporation that it is: acting solely in the self-interest of the handful of oligarchs who own/control it. The Federal Reserve is the ultimate “wolf in sheep’s clothing”, and thus the (deliberate?) irony of the choice of location where the Federal Reserve was effectively created.
The actual legislation which institutionalized this banking cartel was merely a formality, as even by 1910 these oligarchs already “controlled” (i.e. owned) enough members of the U.S. government to ensure passage of any legislation they commanded. Proof of this comes merely by looking at the exact date when “The Federal Reserve Act” was signed into law: December 23, 1913 – after most members of the U.S. government had already deserted Washington to prepare for their Christmas festivities.
How and why did the creation of the Federal Reserve signal the beginning-of-the-end of the U.S.’s endlessly-hyped “democracy”? It was (is) because the Federal Reserve was legislated as an entity above the government of the United States, and thus above any of its laws. Any who doubt this conclusion need merely listen as Sir Alan Greenspan explains what the “independence” of the Fed really means: that the Federal Reserve was (and is) the supreme authority within the U.S.
Obviously no nation whose government is subordinate to a private cabal of (ultra-wealthy, ultra-powerful) bankers can possibly be characterized as “a democracy”. In any real democracy; the government elected by the people is the supreme authority of the land.
Why did these bankers consider it necessary to seize effective control of the U.S. government in a bloodless, unofficial coup? They did it to gain the absolute (economic) power needed to successfully implement their own, monstrous agenda, which had been articulated twenty years prior to this: The Bankers’ Manifesto of 1892.
…Capital [i.e. the wealth of the oligarchs] must protect itself in every possible manner through combination (conspiracy) and legislation. The courts must be called to our aid, debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible.
When through the process of law, the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government applied to a central power of imperial wealth under the control of the leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. [emphasis mine]

The U.S. dollar is dying an ugly death. The U.S. government knows it, and the bankers who run the U.S. government are certainly aware of it – since they are the ones who have (already) undermined its value to worthlessness.
Naturally, the dollar’s ugly death is never mentioned in the Corporate media. Even with the manipulation choke-hold which this banking cabal has over our so-called “markets”; it would be extremely difficult to pump-up the value of the dollar to its present, absurdly fraudulent level if everyone knew that this was a dying currency – which will be obsolete (and thus officially worthless) in a few year’s time.
All this is carved in stone. What has (previously) been the subject of considerable debate and speculation is what currency will replace the U.S. dollar as the world’s “reserve currency”. The crooked bankers and corrupt governments of the Western bloc have already floated several trial-balloons, in their efforts to attempt to maintain control over the global economy by being in complete control of the principal money supply for the global economy.
“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.”
- Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744 – 1812)
This mantra of financial criminals (in general), and crooked big-banks (in particular) is based on the simplest of premises. If one controls the printing press of a nation (or, in this case, the global economy); that criminal can print-and-steal as much currency as he/she desires – and then use all that dirty money to buy-off politicians, regulators, and entire governments.
Buying politicians is “good business” (assuming that one has no scruples) because these stooges-for-hire are notoriously cheap. Spend $100’s of thousands (or perhaps a few $millions) buying-off politicians, and it can yield countless $billions in (generally illegal) profits. Put another way; “investing” in governments (i.e. buying them off) pays much better than investing in markets.
The result of this obsession of the Old World Order with attempting to maintain control of the printing press for the global economy has been several pathetic attempts to cobble together some (corrupt) replacement paper for the USD. First we had “the Amero”.
The “Amero” (as the name implies) was to be launched in North America as the official currency for that (new) bloc, and (if the banksters had succeeded in their conspiring) would have coincided with the launch of a “North American Union”. However, despite having complete control over the Corporate media (and thus all mainstream “news”); the banking cabal’s puppet politicians couldn’t sell either the Amero or a North American Union.
The next attempted replacement for the USD was even more pathetic. The bankers and their Western governments attempted to take an ordinary credit instrument (the “special drawing rights” by which the International Monetary Fund extends credit), and convert that (somehow) into a currency.
This would have entirely eliminated the distinction between “money” and “debt”. But it was such outrageous monetary voodoo that even the One Bank’s puppet governments wouldn’t embrace the scheme. In part; this was due to the simple fact that there would have been no way to portray this instrument of financial fraud (and infinite debt) as “money” to the masses of Sheep in our societies.
Lesser, and even sillier schemes have been put forth by the bankers and their minions, but none of them ever achieved enough significance to merit mention. Meanwhile in the Rest of the World (i.e. its less-corrupt regimes) there has been a steady, inexorable move toward at least a quasi-legitimate replacement for the USD: China’s renminbi.
