The Road to WWI

Up to and including Henry VIII’s reign, the financial power of Europe, including England, was the Holy Roman Empire with its head office in Rome. Once Henry threw out the Pope, England had to rely on private bankers. It was a very inadequate and sloppy system until the Amsterdam and London bankers got together in what is known as the Glorious Revolution of 1688 and created in 1689 the English Parliament followed by the Bank of England in 1694. Now that loans were guaranteed by taxes collected by a proper parliament, the bankers felt free to make loans. That’s when the Industrial Revolution really started. But the English financial system remained a parochial one.

 

Manufactured goods from England were sent all over the world and traded several times and what was brought back was worth many times the original goods. When these goods were sold in England they created a lot of wealth for the English bankers. They obviously wanted to continue that type of operation in the American Colonies, but the colonials started balking. That’s when Mayer Amschel Rothschild decided to do in America what the English and Dutch bankers had done in England. Rothschild financed the American Revolution in 1776, created the Bank of North America in 1781 and America became financially independent of the Bank of England.

 

As we have seen, the French real estate scam of 1789 made it possible for Rothschild and his five sons to buy up all the gold they could find in Europe. By 1810 Nathan Amschel Rothschild, at the ripe old age of 30, was the financial master of the world; he was in control of the monetary systems of England, America and much of Europe. He was not limited by nationalism and patriotism; he was an international banker who wanted to create market economies.

 

The American market economy would be very easy to build for the continent was empty, but the European market economy was another kettle of fish. There were all those languages and national egos, and each country had a history. That would all have to be dismantled at one point, but for now, the Holy Roman Empire or the Catholic Church had to be destroyed as a financial power.

 

Although France, the pillar of that empire, was destroyed in 1789 along with the Austro-Hungarian Empire, after Napoleon, the Catholic Royalists, especially the ones in France who had lost all their property in the grand daddy of real estate scams, wanted their stuff back and still had a lot of fight in them. It took three more revolutions to beat the stuffing out of them, but in 1875, they threw in the towel. Europe was now in the hands of the bankers. The latter could now start thinking about bulldozing the whole lot, hence WWI.

History is simple

                                        

History is simple. All one has to know is what happened in 1694, 1781, 1804, 1875, 1913 and 1944. Those are the turning points that led to the creation of the great market economies that make up our world today. If we know what important developments took place in those years, we know how our world of credit works.

In 1694, bankers from Amsterdam and London, mostly Jews and Huguenots, created the first private national bank ever: the Bank of England. They had succeeded in creating an official financial institution that replaced the unofficial one represented by the Catholic Church of Rome prior to Henry VIII’s shenanigans.

In 1781, Mayer Amschel Bauer, succeeded in snatching the American pie, a very small pie at the time, from those same English bankers. That was the year he created the Bank of North America.

Mayer then went on to destroy what was left of Europe’s financial power, the Church of Rome, and he started with France, the cornerstone of that power. He pulled off the biggest real estate scam in history and became extremely rich and powerful in the process. In 1804, the takeover of France was complete when Napoleon entrenched the Napoleon Code.

 However, the Catholic Royalists who had lost a lot of assets to Mayer weren’t about to throw in the towel. It took three more revolutions for Mayer’s descendants to make them cry uncle. In 1875, some 80 years after the French Revolution, the Catholic Royalists finally caved in and agreed to have France run by an elected president. That marked the definite end of the Church of Rome as a financial power.

In 1913, as we all know, the Federal Reserve board was created which meant the US Dollar was on the road to replacing the English Pound and become the first world fiat currency of reference.

 However, in order to do that, the ex-Holy Roman Empire countries in Europe had to be forced into accepting that currency. After two world wars and much death and destruction, in 1944, the leaders all sat down at Bretton Woods and accepted the US Dollar as the world fiat currency of reference. Mayer’s descendants were now in total control of the financial institutions of the world; all the currencies were fixed to the US Dollar. 

 Today, the world is run by pushing the levers of credit. Mayer’s dynasty can make GM go under, play with the stock exchanges, the gold prices, and the economies of Europe. Making China grow skyscrapers instead of rice is a piece of cake, rice cake that is. Everybody is forced to accept the US Dollar and that currency isn’t the property of the US Government in spite of its name. Would the dynasty that created the Bank of North America in 1781 have anything to do with printing the stuff?

Napoleon, Russia and Gold

In 1803, gold was discovered in the Urals, in Russia. It was well known that the Tsar wanted to keep it a secret, for he didn’t want the serf population to start a gold rush. However, in 1812, Rothschild and his five boys already possessed most of the gold bullion available in Europe, and Nathan was setting the world price for gold bullion out of the City in London. Is it a stretch to think the latter knew there was gold in the Urals? Is it possible that Nathan got Napoleon to stake out a claim to the region? Could Tsar Alexander have known that Napoleon’s campaign was about gold and that the Rothschilds were financing it? Could that be one of the reasons why there was so much anti-Semitism in Tsarist Russia?

We know that the Rothschilds financed all parties during the Napoleonic Wars, and that included Wellington and Napoleon. We know Napoleon started the Russian campaign in June, 1812, and that he was heading into a Russian winter, which made absolutely no sense. We know he had no valid reason for going to Moscow, and after conquering it, we know the city had been burned and stripped of supplies and was a deadly place to be. Knowing that he could easily have gone on to Saint Petersburg to defeat the Tsar and winter his troops in that city, why did he twirl his thumbs in Moscow for a whole five weeks? And where did the 22,000 troops he sent on a secret mission go? We can only assume the plan was not to defeat Russia. If Napoleon waited in Moscow, it had to be for a very good reason and since it wasn’t for military gain, it had to be for gold. If Napoleon waited five weeks with his supplies practically exhausted, it’s because he was waiting for an answer from the Tsar, to whom he had issued some kind of ultimatum. Most likely, after receiving assurances from Tsar Alexander regarding the Urals gold fields, Napoleon decided to spare Saint Petersburg and take off as fast as he could for home. And if he took the direct way back, knowing full well the countryside was totally devastated and that winter was around the corner, it was perhaps because he was overly anxious to communicate the positive results, and in his haste to get back to civilization, he gambled that he would make it home before winter set in. As for the 22,000 men he had sent on a special mission, we can only guess where they went. They probably succeeded in staking out a claim to the gold fields and stayed on to maintain control over them, for 1812 was the year the Tsar authorized “private companies” to mine for gold in the Urals.

When trying to understand something that doesn’t make sense, it’s always advisable to follow the money trail. Militarily, the invasion of Russia didn’t make any sense, but the staking out of the Urals gold fields did.

Napoleon was a hired gun

Paul François Jean Nicolas, vicomte de Barras, was a nonentity who had a major role in the French Revolution. In 1794, he came out of nowhere, took charge of the Convention and sent all the mad dogs including Robespierre to the guillotine. The Terror ended just as suddenly as it had started, and again the people had no say.

 

With the Convention wiped out, the Directoire took over. Barras, an aristocrat who had suddenly become extremely wealthy and powerful, had obviously been paid to get a hired gun to get rid of the Royalists. After Barras handed over his mistress Josephine to the love-struck Napoleon, it was obvious that Bonaparte was the chosen one. When the latter proceeded to gun down a number of Royalists in front of St. Roch Church, the deal was sealed.

 

Bonaparte grew in stature, and Barras simply stepped aside. The first thing Emperor Napoleon did was hammer through the Civil Code and put Prefects in charge of the newly-created Departments with the help of the dreaded Fouché police. France had become the police state that it is today.

 

All told, Napoleon did a great job. Under his watch, the Holy Roman Empire was defeated at Austerlitz, France was transformed into a centralist state, the French Navy was destroyed at Aboukir and Trafalgar, while the Imperial Army was annihilated during the Russian campaign and at Waterloo. As a political and financial power, the Church of Rome no longer existed.

 

In France, the Royalists fought back hard—there were three more revolutions—but they ran out of steam and finally capitulated with the passing of the Constitutional Laws in 1875. The Rothschilds had taken control of the Bank of England and the world of finance as early as 1810, but it had taken them almost seventy years to get the Ancien Regime to cry uncle.

Louisiana Purchase

By the turn of the 19th century the Rothschilds not only owned the gold that Haym Salomon had accumulated in America, but most of the gold bullion available in Europe as well, thanks to the humongous real estate fraud of 1789, the French Revolution.

In 1803, Mayer Amschel Rothschild and his five sons, especially Nathan in London, were already thinking of creating the first and greatest market economy that the world would ever know, the USA. They had the monetary control of the fledgling democracy, and after putting George Washington’s successor, John Adams, in the newly-built White House in 1800, they had successfully isolated the country’s Chief Executive. It was time to expand westward.

At the time of the Louisiana Purchase, the thirteen Colonies had around seven million dollars in revenues and were already running a 3.2 million dollar deficit. Like all governments, and especially because they didn’t yet collect taxes, they had no choice but to go to the First Bank of the United States to get the bankers’ OK. That was the bank opened by Robert Morris and Alexander Hamilton, Rothschild’s bank.

When Congress offered to pay ten million dollars for the port of New Orleans, for that’s all they wanted, to everyone’s surprise, Napoleon sweetened the deal by throwing in at no extra charge all of the French possessions in Louisiana, including a good chunk of Rupert’s Land that makes up today’s Canadian Prairie Provinces. That was, indeed, a mind-boggling offer and though Congress couldn’t believe its luck, it didn’t bother to question this ‘divine’ act. Moreover, in 1867, all of Rupert’s Land was given to Canada without a fight. It just seems that the straight line represented by the 49th parallel was drawn by another ‘divine’ power.

Of course, this ‘divine’ intervention can easily be explained. There is no doubt that the First Bank of the United States was a Rothschild bank. And in Europe, because the Rothschilds were by now in charge of the Bank of England and were financing the Napoleonic Wars, we can be sure that they had some say regarding Napoleon’s decision. The Louisiana Purchase had to have been an in-family Rothschild transatlantic operation. HR’s (House of Rothschild) main concern at that time had to be the opening of the West, and because that couldn’t happen until the Louisiana Purchase was completed, HR must have ‘convinced’ Napoleon to make Congress an offer that it couldn’t possibly refuse.
