"The Bankers Manifesto of 1892"

Articles & Blogs - US Commentary

[Note to readers: this is a "revised" version (i.e. updated and re-edited) from a blog post which I originally wrote late last year.]

The actions of the banker-servants in the U.S. government must seem utterly incomprehensible to most people. Since "Helicopter" Ben Bernanke and "Bazooka" Paulson began handing out blank-cheques to the U.S. financial crime syndicate, they have already spent or pledged more than $10 TRILLION. With the balance-sheets of Wall Street banksters leveraged by an average of 30:1, this has amounted to paying off 'bad bets' at 30:1 odds - with most of those bets based on the (declining) housing prices of the U.S. market.

Meanwhile, only roughly 1% of that mind-boggling total has actually been directed to bailing out the housing sector itself. It is simple arithmetic that bailing out U.S. real estate assets directly would be 30 times as efficient as the current policy of bailing out the banksters' leveraged-bets.

Could even the brain-dead puppets of the U.S. Congress be throwing away tax dollars with this degree of stupidity and inefficiency? What if there was a "method" to their madness?

To properly answer this question, it is necessary to look back through history - seeking some common "theme". To me, such a theme is painfully obvious. Since the beginning of civilization, there has only been one, real "war" - the war between rich and poor.

In the times of Kings, Queens, and Emperors, that "war" was out in the open. However, having observed how badly the war was going with the "kings, queens, and emperors" (lol!), the truly rich got smarter. They realized that the only long-term means of getting the "little people" to willingly wear their yokes is by deceiving them into believing those yokes don't exist.

A"yoke of debt" has proven to be infinitely superior to the chains of slavery, in that the masses not only willingly embrace their debt-yokes, but have been steadily striving, themselves, to make those yokes both larger and tighter. And nothing in history has accelerated the bankers' grip over the masses as much as the credit card.

Programmed into believing that a credit card "limit" was the same thing as a savings-account balance, hundreds of millions of people in Western industrialized societies have willingly sought to indebt themselves to the maximum amount possible. Roughly half of these self-created "victims" are Americans, who also carry the highest average debts.

Simultaneously, the filthy-rich have sought to transform their title in this new paradigm of slavery from "rulers" to "bankers". And while bankers get rich from people as they pay back there self-incurred debts, they become wealthier (and much more powerful) from bankrupting the "little people" and seizing their assets.

Over the past century, their propaganda machine has become much more adept, and infinitely more sophisticated. As a result, and with the end of a "free press" (except for the internet) you will no longer hear the rich openly discuss their plans as they did in 1892. Meanwhile, Americans are bombarded with the message that living with huge debts is not simply acceptable but desirable.

The "Bankers Manifesto" was written in 1892, but apart from some archaic language, it sounds like it could have been written in 1992. Can anyone argue that this "manifesto" appears to perfectly describe Wall Street's "play-book" in 2009?


The Bankers Manifesto of 1892

(Revealed by US Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr. from Minnesota before the US Congress sometime during his term of office between the years of 1907 and 1917 to warn the citizens.)

We (the bankers) must proceed with caution and guard every move made, for the lower order of people are already showing signs of restless commotion [that would be us]. Prudence will therefore show a policy of apparently yielding to the popular will until our plans are so far consummated that we can declare our designs without fear of any organized resistance [that would be SOON]. The Farmers Alliance and Knights of Labor organizations in the United States should be carefully watched by our trusted men, and we must take immediate steps to control these organizations in our interest or disrupt them.

At the coming Omaha Convention to be held July 4th (1892), our men must attend and direct its movement, or else there will be set on foot such antagonism to our designs as may require force to overcome. This at the present time would be premature. We are not yet ready for such a crisis. Capital 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 the law, the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of the 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.

History repeats itself in regular cycles. This truth is well known among our principal men who are engaged in forming an imperialism of the world
[that would be SENIOR politicians]. While they are doing this, the people must be kept in a state of political antagonism.

The question of tariff reform must be urged through the organization known as the Democratic Party, and the question of protection with the reciprocity must be forced to view through the Republican Party.

By thus dividing voters, we can get them to expand their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us, except as teachers to the common herd. Thus, by discrete action, we can secure all that has been so generously planned and successfully accomplished.

I think this is a must read if one would understand modern US Banking Infrastructure and how in has infiltrated our govt. We the people (our forefathers) have been quite wary in our creation our democracy with the separation of Church from State. In this day and age we need to be equally concerned about separating BANKS from state. Will we be the democracy envisioned by our forefathers, or puppets to private interest?
