Martial Law coming to a neighborhood near you October 1st

by Jock Doubleday on September 24, 2008

Jock Doubleday was suspended as an author in October 2008. Despite his claims of censorship, none of his posts have been removed.

I guess the Law in Martial Law should be in quotes, because Section 1385 of the Posse Comitatus Act states:
“Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.”

Dear Friends,
Whenever a Great Bipartisan Consensus is announced, and a compliant
media assures everyone that the wondrous actions of our wise leaders
are being taken for our own good, you can know with absolute
certainty that disaster is about to strike.
The events of the past week are no exception.
The bailout package that is about to be rammed down Congress’ throat
is not just economically foolish. It is downright sinister. It
makes a mockery of our Constitution, which our leaders should never
again bother pretending is still in effect. It promises the American
people a never-ending nightmare of ever-greater debt liabilities they
will have to shoulder. Two weeks ago, financial analyst Jim Rogers
said the bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac made America more
communist than China! “This is welfare for the rich,” he said. “This
is socialism for the rich. It’s bailing out the financiers, the
banks, the Wall Streeters.”
That describes the current bailout package to a T. And we’re being
told it’s unavoidable.
The claim that the market caused all this is so staggeringly foolish
that only politicians and the media could pretend to believe it. But
that has become the conventional wisdom, with the desired result that
those responsible for the credit bubble and its predictable
consequences – predictable, that is, to those who understand sound,
Austrian economics – are being let off the hook. The Federal Reserve
System is actually positioning itself as the savior, rather than the
culprit, in this mess!
• The Treasury Secretary is authorized to purchase up to $700
billion in mortgage-related assets at any one time. That means $700
billion is only the very beginning of what will hit us.
• Financial institutions are “designated as financial agents of
the Government.” This is the New Deal to end all New Deals.
• Then there’s this: “Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the
authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency
discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any
administrative agency.” Translation: the Secretary can buy up
whatever junk debt he wants to, burden the American people with it,
and be subject to no one in the process.
There goes your country.
Even some so-called free-market economists are calling all this
“sadly necessary.” Sad, yes. Necessary? Don’t make me laugh.
Our one-party system is complicit in yet another crime against the
American people. The two major party candidates for president
themselves initially indicated their strong support for bailouts of
this kind – another example of the big choice we’re supposedly
presented with this November: yes or yes. Now, with a backlash
brewing, they’re not quite sure what their views are. A sad display,
Although the present bailout package is almost certainly not the end
of the political atrocities we’ll witness in connection with the
crisis, time is short. Congress may vote as soon as tomorrow. With
a Rasmussen poll finding support for the bailout at an anemic seven
percent, some members of Congress are afraid to vote for it. Call
them! Let them hear from you! Tell them you will never vote for
anyone who supports this atrocity.
The issue boils down to this: do we care about freedom? Do we care
about responsibility and accountability? Do we care that our
government and media have been bought and paid for? Do we care that
average Americans are about to be looted in order to subsidize the
fattest of cats on Wall Street and in government? Do we care?
When the chips are down, will we stand up and fight, even if it means
standing up against every stripe of fashionable opinion in politics
and the media?
Times like these have a way of telling us what kind of a people we
are, and what kind of country we shall be.
In liberty,
Ron Paul

Mr. Paul said it all. Now, it is up to US to stand up for our Constitution our freedom, and our Country. I don’t care what uniform they wear, if they are against the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, they are Enemies of the People. The President is an Enemy of the people, most of Congress are Enemies of the people.
This is a Nation Of the people, For the People and By the People. Presidents are nothing. They are supposed to safeguard the People’s Freedom. If they don’t, they are enemies of the People, and should be Impeached, tried and imprisoned or executed for treason. Bush is a Traitor, just as his entire family are traitors, decended from traitors, starting with Prescott Bush and his connection with the attempted Coup against FDR in 1933, then his working with the Nazis continued after the war started. He had his wrist slapped in 1942 for being a traitor. The key being: A wealthy Traitor. Money buys all in a Government run by Traitors.
Stand up and be counted, or go to a concentration camp and be tortured, starved and worked to death. The choice is yours.

THE ROTHSCHILD DYNASTY, Descent Into Slavery..
For many years the words international banker, Rothschild, Money and Gold have held a mystical type of fascination for many people around the world but particularly in the United States.
Over the years in the United States, the international bankers have come in for a great deal of criticism by a wide variety of individuals who have held high offices of public trust — men whose opinions are worthy of note and whose responsibilities placed them in positions where they knew what was going on behind the scenes in politics and high finance.
President Andrew Jackson, the only one of our presidents whose administration totally abolished the National Debt, condemned the international bankers as a “den of vipers” which he was determined to “rout out” of the fabric of American life. Jackson claimed that if only the American people understood how these vipers operated on the American scene “there would a revolution before morning.”
Congressman Louis T. McFadden who, for more than ten years, served as chairman of the Banking and Currency Committee, stated that the international bankers are a “dark crew of financial pirates who would cut a man’s throat to get a dollar out of his pocket… They prey upon the people of these United States.”
John F. Hylan, then mayor of New York, said in 1911 that “the real menace of our republic is the invisible government which, like a giant octopus, sprawls its slimy length over our city, state and nation. At the head is a small group of banking houses, generally referred to as ‘international bankers.’”
Were these leading public figures correct in their assessment of the situation, or were they the victims of some exotic form of paranoia?
Let’s examine history analytically and unemotionally and uncover the facts. The truth, as it unfolds, will prove to be eye-opening and educational to those who are seeking to more clearly understand the mind-boggling events that have been (and are) taking place on the national and international scenes.
Europe, towards the end of the eighteenth century or at the time of the American Revolution, was very different from what we know in the same area today. It was composed oil a combination of large and small kingdoms, duchies and states which were constantly engaged in squabbles among themselves. Most people were reduced to the level of serfs — with no political rights. The meager ‘privileges’ that were granted to them by their ‘owners’ could be withdrawn at a moment’s notice.
It was during this period of time that a young man appeared on the European scene who was to have a tremendous impact on the future course of world history; his name was Mayer Amschel Bauer. In later years his name, which he had changed, became synonamous with wealth, power and influence. He was the first of the Rothschilds — the first truly international banker!
Mayer Amschel Bauer was born in Frankfurt-On-The-Main in Germany in 1743. He was the son of Moses Amschel Bauer an itinerant money lender and goldsmith who, tiring of his wanderings in Eastern Europe, decided to settle down in the city where his first son was born. He opened a shop, or counting house, on Judenstrasse (or Jew Street). Over the door leading into the shop he placed a large Red Shield.
At a very early age Mayer Amschel Bauer showed that he possessed immense intellectual ability, and his father spent much of his time teaching him everything he could about the money lending business, and the lessons he had learned from many sources. The older Bauer originally hoped to have his son trained as a Rabbi but the father’s untimely death put an end to such plans.
A few years after his father’s death Mayer Amschel Bauer went to work as a clerk in a bank owned by the Oppenheimers in Hannover. His superior ability was quickly recognized and his advancement within the firm was swift. He was awarded a junior partnership.
Shortly thereafter he returned to Frankurt where he was able to purchase the business his father had established in 1750. The big Red Shield was still displayed over the door. Recognizing the true significance of the Red Shield (his father had adopted it as his emblem from the Red Flag which was the emblem of the revolutionary minded Jews in Eastern Europe), Mayer Amschel Bauer changed his name to Rothschild; in this way the House of Rothschild came into being.
The base for a vast accmulation of wealth was laid during the 1760s when Amschel Rothschild renewed his acquaintance with General von Estorff for whom he ran errands while employed at the Oppenheimer Bank.
When Rothschild discovered that the general, who was now attached to the court of Prince William of Hanau, was interested in rare coins he decided to take full advantage of the situation. By offering valuable coins and trinkets at discount prices he soon ingratiated himself with the general and other influential members of the court.
One day he was ushered into the presence of Prince William himself. His Highness bought a handful of his rarest medals and coins. This was the first transaction between a Rothschild and a head of state. Soon Rothschild was doing business with other princes.
Before long Rothschild tried another ploy to secure an ‘in’ with various local princes — and to further his own aims! He wrote them letters that played on their princely vanity while asking them for their patronage. A typical letter would read:
“It has been my particular high and good fortune to serve your lofty princely Serenity at various times and to your most gracious satisfaction. I stand ready to exert all my energies and my entire fortune to serve your lofty princely serenity whenever in future it shall please you to command me. An especially powerful incentive to this end would be given me if your lofty princely serenity were to distinguish me with an appointment as one of your Highness’ Court Factors. I am making bold to beg for this with the more confidence in the assurance that by so doing I am not giving any trouble; while for my part such a distinction would lift up my commercial standing and be of help to me in many other ways that I feel certain thereby to make my own way and fortune here in the city of Franfurt.”
His tactics paid off. On September 21, 1769, Rothschild was able to nail a sign bearing the arms of Hess-Hanau to the front of his shop. In gold characters it read: “M. A. Rothschild, by appointment court factor to his serene highness, Prince William of Hanau.”
In 1770 Rothschild married Gutele Schnaper who was aged seventeen. They had a large family consititing of five sons and five daughters. Their sons were Amschel, Salomon, Nathan, Kalmann (Karl) and Jacob (James).
History records that William of Hanau, “whose crest had been famous in Germany since the Middle Ages,” was a dealer in human flesh. For a price the Prince, who was closely related to the various royal families of Europe, would rent out troops to any nation. His best customer was the British government which wanted troops for such projects as trying to keep the American colonists in line.
He did exceptionally well with his ‘rent-a-troop’ business. When he died he left the largest fortune ever accumulated in Europe to that time, $200,000,000. Rothschild biographer Frederic Morton describes William as “Europe’s most blue-cold blooded loan shark” (The Rothschilds, Fawcett Crest, 1961, p. 40).
Rothschild became an agent for this ‘human cattle’ dealer. He must have worked diligently in his new position of responsibility because, when William was forced to flee to Denmark, he left 600,000 pounds (then valued at $3,000,000) with Rothschild for safekeeping.
According to the late Commander William Guy Carr, who was an Intelligence Officer in the Royal Canadian Navy, and whohad excellent contacts in intelligence circles around the world, the founder of the House of Rothschild drew up plans for the creation of the Illuminati and then entrusted Adam Weishaupt with its organization and development.
Sir Walter Scott, in the second volume of his Life of Napoleon, states that the French Revolution was planned by the Illuminati and was financed by the money changers of Europe. Interestingly enough, the above book (which this author has both seen and read) is the only book written by Scott that is not listed under his name in any of the ‘authoritative’ reference works. It is now a ‘non book’!
For an account of what happened next we turn to the Jewish Encyclopedia, 1905 edition, Volume 10, p. 494: “According to legend this money was hidden away in wine casks, and, escaping the search of Napoleon’s soldiers when they entered Frankfort, was restored intact in the same casks in 1814, when the elector returned to the electorate. The facts are somewhat less romantic, and more businesslike.”
Pay particular attention to the last nine words. They are loaded with significance. Here the leading Jewish authority states that what Rothschild actually did with the $3,000,000 was “more businesslike,” from a Jewish point of view, than what was stated in the legend.
The simple truth of the matter is that Rothschild embezzled the money from Prince William. But even before the money reached Rothschild it was not ‘clean’ (or Kosherl). The vast sum had been paid to William of Hess by the British government for the services of his soldiers. The money was originally embezzled by William from his troops who were legally entitled to it.
With the twice embezzled money as a solid foundation, Mayer Amschel Rothschild decided to vastly expand his operations — and become the first international banker.
A couple of years earlier Rothschild had sent his son, Nathan, to England to take care of the family business in that country. After a brief stay in Manchester, where he operated as a merchant, Nathan, on instructions from his father, moved to London and set up shop as a merchant banker. To get the operation under way Rothschild gave his son the three million dollars he had embezzled from William of Hess.
The Jewish Encyclopedia for 1905 tells us that Nathan invested the loot in “gold from the East India company knowing that it would be needed for Wellington’s peninsula campaign.” On the stolen money Nathan made “no less than four profits; (1) On the sale of Wellington’s paper [which he bought at 50 cents on the dollar and collected at par; (2) on the sale of gold to Wellington; (3) on its repurchase; and (4) on forwarding it to Portugal. This was the beginning of the great fortunes of the house" (p. 494).
Yes, the Jewish Encyclopaedia claims that the great fortune accumulated by the Rothschilds over the years was based on the "businesslike" method of fraud.
With their huge accumulation of ill-gotten gain the family established branches of the House of Rothschild in Berlin, Vienna, Paris and Naples. Rothschild placed a son in charge of each branch. Amschel was placed in charge of the Berlin branch; Salomon was over the Vienna branch; Jacob (James) went to Paris and Kalmann (Karl) opened up the Rothschild bank in Naples. The headquarters of the House of Rothschild was, and is, in London.
An anonymous contemporary described Nathan Rothschild as he leaned against the 'Rothschild Piller' at the London Stock Exchange, hung his heavy hands into his pockets, and began to release silent, motionless, implacable cunning:
"Eyes are usually called the windows of the soul. But in Rothschild's case you would conclude that the windows are false ones, or that there was no soul to look out of them. There comes not one pencil of light from the interior, neither is there one gleam of that which comes from without reflected in any direction. The whole puts you in mind of an empty skin, and you wonder why it stands upright without at least something in it. By and by another figure comes up to it. It then steps two paces aside, and the most inquisitive glance that you ever saw, and a glance more inquisitive than you would ever have thought of, is drawn out of the fixed and leaden eye, as if one were drawing a sword from a scabbard. The visiting figure, which has the appearance of coming by accident and not by design, stops just a second or two, in the course of which looks are exchanged which, though you cannot translate, you feel must be of most important meaning. After these the eyes are sheathed up again, and the figure resumes its stony posture.
During the morning numbers of visitors come, all of whom meet with a similar reception and vanish in a similar manner. Last of all the figure itself vanishes, leaving you utterly at a loss." (Frederic Morton, The Rothschilds, p. 65)
When he died on September 19, 1812, the founder of the House of Rothschild left a will that was just days old. In it, he laid down specific laws by which the House that bore his name would operate in future year.
The laws were as follows:
(1) All key positions in the House of Rothschild were to be held by members of the family, and not by hired hands. Only male members of the family were allowed to participate in the business.
The eldest son of the eldest son was to be the head of the family unless the majority of the rest of the family agreed otherwise. It was for this exceptional reason that Nathan, who was particularly brilliant, was appointed head of the House of Rothschild in 1812.
(2) The family was to intermarry with their own first and second cousins, thus preserving the vast fortune. This rule was strictly adhered to early on but later, when other rich Jewish banking houses came on the scene, it was relaxed to allow some of the Rothschilds to marry selected members of the new elite.
(3) Amschel forbade his heirs "most explicitly, in any circumstances whatever, to have any public inventory made by the courts, or otherwise, of my estate .... Also I forbid any legal action and any publication of the value of the inheritance .... Anyone who disregards these provisions and takes any kind of action which conflicts with them will immediately be regarded as having disputed the will, and shall suffer the consequences of so doing."
(4) Rothschild ordered a perpetual family partnership and provided that the female members of the family, their husbands and children should receive their interest in the estate subject to the management of the male members. They were to have no part in the management of the business. Anyone who disputed this arrangement would lose their interest in the Estate. (The last stipulation was specifically designed to seal the mouths of anyone who might feel like breaking with the family. Rothschild obviously felt that there were a lot of things under the family 'rug' that should never see the light of day).
The mighty strength of the House of Rothschild was based on a variety of important factors:
(A) Complete secrecy resulting from total family control of all business dealings;
(B) An uncanny, one could almost say a supernatural ability to see what lay ahead and to take full advantage of it. The whole family was driven by an insatiable lust for the accumulation of wealth and power, and
(C) Total ruthlessness in all business dealings.
Biographer Frederic Morton, in The Rothschilds, tells us that Mayer Amschel Rothschild and his five sons were "wizards" of finance, and "fiendish calculators" who were motivated by a "demonic drive" to succeed in their secret undertakings.
From the same authoritative source we learn that "on Saturday evenings, when prayer was done at the synagogue, Mayer would inveigle the rabbi into his house. They would bend towards one another on the green upholstery, sipping slowly at a glass of wine and argue about first and last things deep into the night. Even on work days...Mayer...was apt to tare down the big book of the Talmud and recite from it...while the entire family must sit stock still and listen" (p. 31).
It could be said of the Rothschilds that the "family that preys together stays together." And prey they did! Morton states that it is difficult for the average person to "comprehend Rothschild nor even the reason why he having so much, wanted to conquer more." All five brothers were imbued with this same spirit of cunning and conquest.
The Rothschilds formed no true friendships or alliances. Their associates were but mere acquaintances who were used to further the interests of the House of Rothschild, and then thrown on the garbage heap of history when they had served their purpose or outlived their usefulness.
The truth of this statement is demonstrated by another passage from Frederic Morton's book. He relates how, in 1806, Napoleon declared that it was his "object to remove the house of Hess-Cassel from rulership and to strike it out of the list of powers."
"Thus Europe's mightiest man decreed erasure of the rock on which the new Rothschild firm had been built. Yet, curiously, the bustle didn't diminish at the house of the [Red] Shield…. Rothschilds still sat, avid and impenetrable, portfolios wedged between body and arm.
“They saw neither peace nor war, neither slogans or manifestos, nor orders of the day, neither death nor glory. They saw none of the things that blinded the world. They saw only steppingstones. Prince William had been one. Napoleon would be the next” (pp. 38,39).
‘Curious’? Not exactly! The House of Rothschild was helping to finance the French dictator and, as a result, had free access to French markets at all times. Some years later, when both France and England were blockading each other’s coast lines, the only merchants who were allowed to freely run the blockades were — yes, you guessed it, the Rothschilds. They were financing both sides!
“The efficiency which powered Mayer’s sons brought on enormous economic spring cleaning: a sweeping away of fiscal dead wood; a renovation of old credit structures and an invention of new ones; a formation — implicit in the sheer existence of five different Rothschild banks in five different countries — of fresh money channels via clearing-houses; a method of replacing the old unwieldy shipping of gold bullion by a worldwide system of debits and credits.
“One of the greatest contributions was Nathan’s new technique for floating international loans. He didn’t much care to receive dividends in all sorts of strange and cumbersome currencies.
“Now Nathan attracted him — the most powerful investment source of the nineteenth century — by making foreign bonds payable in Pounds Sterling” (p. 96).
As the wealth and power of the Rothschilds grew in size and influence so did their intelligence gathering network. They had their ‘agents’ strategically located in all the capitals and trading centers of Europe, gathering and developing various types of intelligence. Like most family exploits, it was based on a combination of very hard work and sheer cunning.
Their unique spy system started out when ‘the boys’ began sending messages to each other through a networh of couriers. Soon it developed into something much more elaborate, effective and far reaching. It was a spy network par excellence. Its stunning speed and effectiveness gave the Rothschilds a clear edge in all their dealings on an international level.
“Rothschild coaches careened down the highways; Rothschild boats set sail across the Channel; Rothschild agents were swift shadows along the streets. They carried cash, securities, letters and news. Above all, news — the latest exclusive news to be vigorously processed at stock market and commodity bourse.
“And there was no news more precious than the outcome at Waterloo…” (The Rothschilds p. 94).
Upon the battle of Waterloo depended the future of the European continent. If the Grande Armee of Napoleon emerged victorious France would be undisputed master of all she surveyed on the European front. If Napoleon was crushed into submission England would hold the balance of power in Europe and would be in a position to greatly expand its sphere of influence.
Historian John Reeves, a Rothschild partisan, reveals in his book The Rothschilds, Financial Rulers of the Nations, 1887, page 167, that “one cause of his [Nathan's] success was the secrecy with which he shrouded, and the tortuous policy with which he misled those who watched him the keenest.”
There were vast fortunes to be made — and lost — on the outcome of the Battle of Waterloo. The Stock Exchange in London was at fever pitch as traders awaited news of the outcome of this battle of the giants. If Britain lost, English consuls would plummet to unprecedented depths. If Britain was victorioug, the value of the consul would leap to dizzying new heights.
As the two huge armies closed in for their battle to the death, Nathan Rothschild had his agents working feverishly on both sides of the line to gather the most accurate possible information as the battle proceeded. Additional Rothschild agents were on hand to carry the intelligence bulletins to a Rothschild command post strategically located nearby.
Late on the afternoon of June 15, 1815, a Rothschild representative jumped on board a specially chartered boat and headed out into the channel in a hurried dash for the English coast. In his possession was a top secret report from Rothschild’s secret service agents on the progress of the crucial battle. This intelligence data would prove indispensable to Nathan in making some vital decisions.
The special agent was met at Folkstone the following morning at dawn by Nathan Rothschild himself. After quickly scanning the highlights of the report Rothschild was on his way again, speeding towards London and the Stock Exchange.
Arriving at the Exchange amid frantic speculation on the outcome of the battle, Nathan took up his usual position beside the famous ‘Rothschild Pillar.’ Without a sign of emotion, without the slightest change of facial expression the stony-faced, flint eyed chief of the House of Rothschild gave a predetermined signal to his agents who were stationed nearby.
Rothschild agents immediately began to dump consuls on the market. As hundred of thousands of dollars worth of consuls poured onto the market their value started to slide. Then they began to plummet.
Nathan continued to lean against ‘his’ pillar, emotionless, expressionless. He continued to sell, and sell and sell. Consuls kept on falling. Word began to sweep through the Stock Exchange: “Rothschild knows.” “Rothschild knows.” “Wellington has lost at Waterloo.”
The selling turned into a panic as people rushed to unload their ‘worthless’ consuls or paper money for gold and silver in the hope of retaining at least part of their wealth. Consuls continued their nosedive towards oblivion. After several hours of feverish trading the consul lay in ruins. It was selling for about five cents on the dollar.
Nathan Rothschild, emotionless as ever, still leaned against his pillar. He continued to give subtle signals. But these signals were different. They were so bubtly different that only the highly trained Rothschild agents could detect the change. On the cue from their boss, dozens of Rothschild agents made their way to the order desks around the Exchange and bought every consul in sight for just a ‘song’!
A short time later the ‘official’ news arrived in the British capital. England was now the master of the European scene.
Within seconds the consul skyrocketed to above its original value. As the significance of the British victory began to sink into the public consciousness, the value of consuls rose even higher.
Napoleon had ‘met his Waterloo.’ Nathan had bought control of the British economy. Overnight, his already vast fortune was multiplied twenty times over.
Owing to Napoleon’s seizure of Holland in 1803, the leaders of the anti-Napoleonic league chose Frankfort as a financial center where-from to obtain the sinews of war. After the battle of Jena in 1806 the Landgrave of Hesse-Cassel fled to Denmark, where he had already deposited much of his wealth through the agency of Mayer Amschel Rothschild, leaving in the hands of the latter specie and works of art of the value of 600,000 pounds. According to legend, thse were hidden away in wine-casks, and, escaping the search of Napoleon’s soldiers when they entered Frankfort, were restored intact in the same casks in 1814, when the elector returned to his electorate (see Marbot, “Memoirs,” 1891, i. 310-311). The facts are somewhat less romantic, and more business-like. Rothschild, so far from being in danger, was on such good terms with Napoleon’s nominee, Prince Dalberg, that he had been made in 1810 a member of the Electoral College of Darmstadt. The elector’s money had been sent to Nathan in London, who in 1808 utilized it to purchase 800,000 pounds worth of gold from the East India Company, knowing that it would be needed for Wellington’s Peninsular campaign. He made no less than fonr profits on this: (1) on the sale of Wellington’s paper, (2) on the sale of the gold to Wellington, (3) on its repurchase, and (4) on forwarding it to Portugal. This was the beginning of the great fortunes of the house,
Following their crushing defeat at Waterloo, the French struggled to get back on their feet financially. In 1817 they negotiated a substantial loan from the prestigious French banking house of Ouvrard and from the well-known bankers Baring Brothers of London. The Rothschilds had been left on the outside looking in.
The following year the French government was in need of another loan. As the bonds issued in 1817 with the help of Ouvrard and Baring Brothers were increasing in value on the Paris market, and in other European financial centers, it appeared certain that the French governmant would retain the services of these two distinguished banking houses.
The Rothschild brothers tried most of the gimmicks in their vast repertoire to influence the French government to give them the business. Their efforts were in vain.
The French aristocrats, who prided themselves on their elegance and superior breeding, viewed the Rothschilds as mere peasants, upstarts who needed to be kept in their place. The fact that the Rothschilds had vast financial resources, lived in the most luxurious homes and were attired in the most elegant and expensive clothes obtainable cut no ice with the highly class conscious French nobility. The Rothschilds were viewed as uncouth — lacking in social graces. If we are to believe most historical accounts, their appraisal of the first generation Rothschilds was probably valid.
One major piece of armament in the Rothschild arsenal the French had overlooked or ignored — their unprecedented cunning in the use and manipulation of money.
On November 5, 1818, something very unexpected occurred. After a year of steady appreciation the value of the French government bonds began to fall. With each passing day the decline in their value became more pronounced. Within a short space of time other government securities began to suffer too.
The atmosphere in the court of Louis XVIII was tense. Grim faced aristocrats pondered the fate of the country. They hoped for the best but feared the worst! The only people around the French court who weren’t deeply concerned were James and Karl Rothschild. They smiled — but said nothing!
Slowly a sneaking suspicion began to take shape in the minds of some onlookers. Could those Rothschild brothers be the cause of the nation’s economic woes? Could they have secretly manipulated the bond market and engineered the panic?
They had! During October 1818, Rothschild agents, using their masters’ limitless reserves, had bought huge quantities of the French government bonds issued through their rivals Ouvrard and Baring Brothers. This caused the bonds to increase in value. Then, on November 5th, they began to dump the bonds in huge quantities on the open market in the main commercial centers of Europe, throwing the market into a panic.
Suddenly the scene in the Aix palace changed. The Rothschilds, who were patiently biding their time and waiting quietly in an ante room, were ushered into the presence of the king. They were now the center of attention. Their clothes were now the height of fashion. “Their money [was] the darling of the best borrowers.” The Rothschilds had gained control of France…and control is the name of the game!
Benjamin Disraeli, who was the prime minister of Britain, wrote a novel titled Coningsby. The Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol. 10, pp. 501, 5O2 describes the book as “an ideal portrait” of the Rothschild Empire. Disraeli characterized Nathan (in conjunction with his four brothers) as “the lord and master of the money markets of the world, and of course virtally lord and master of everything else. He literally held the revenues of southern Italy in pawn, and monarchs and ministers of all countries courted his advice and were guided by his suggestions.”
The financial coups performed by the Rothschilds in England in 1815, and in France three years later, are just two of the many they have staged worldwide over the years.
There has, however, been a major change in the tactics used to fleece the public of their hard earned money. From being brazenly open in their use and exploitation of people and nations, the Rothschilds have shrunk from the limelight and now operate through and behind a wide variety of fronts.
Their ‘modern’ approach is explained by biographer Frederic Morton: “Rothschilds love to glisten. But to the sorrow of the socially ambitious, Rothschilds glisten only in camera, for and among their own kind.
“Their penchant for reticence seems to have grown in recent generations. The founder of the house enjoined it a long time ago; but some of his sons, while storming Europe’s innermost bastions of power, wrapped their hands around every weapon, including the rawest publicity. Today the family grooms the inaudibility and invisibility of its presence. As a result, some believe that little is left apart from a great legend. And the Rothschilds are quite content to let legend be their public relations.
“Though they control scores of industrial, commercial, mining and tourist corporations, not one bears the name Rothschild. Being private partnerships, the family houses never need to, and never do, publish a single public balance sheet, or any other report of their financial condition” (The Rothschilds. pp. 18, 19).
Throughout their long history the Rothschilds have gone to great lengths to create the impression that they operate within the framework of ‘democracy.’ This posture is calculated to deceive, to lead people away from the fact that their real aim is the elimination of all competition and the creation of a world-wide monopoly. Hiding behind a multitude of ‘fronts’ they have done a masterful job of deception.
It would be extraordinarily naive to even consider the possibility that a family as ambitious, as cunning and as monopolistically minded as the Rothschilds could resist the temptation of becoming heavily involved on the American front.
Following their conquest of Europe early in the 1800s, the Rothschilds cast their covetous eyes on the most precious gem of them all — the United States.
America was unique in modern history. It was only the second nation in history that had ever been formed with the Bible as its law book. Its uniquely magnificent Constitution was specifically designed to limit the power of government and to keep its citizens free and prosperous. Its citizens were basically industrious immigrants who ‘yearned to breath free’ and who asked nothing more than to be given the opportunity to live and work in such a wonderfully stimulating environment.
The results — the ‘fruit’ — of such a unique experiment were so indescribably brilliant that America became a legend around the globe. Many millions across the far flung continents of the world viewed America the Beautiful as the promised land.
The Big Bankers in Europe — the Rothschilds and their cohorts — viewed the wonderful results borne by this unique experiment from an entirely different perspective; they looked upon it as a major threat to their future plans. The establishment Times of London stated: “If that mischievous financial policy which had its origin in the North American Republic [i.e. honest Constitutionally authorized no debt money] should become indurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without a debt [to the international bankers]. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”
The Rothschilds and their friends sent in their financial termites to destroy America because it was becoming “prosperous beyond precedent.”
The first documentable evidence of Rothschild involvement in the financial affairs of the United States came in the late 1820s and early 1830s when the family, through their agent Nicholas Biddie, fought to defeat Andrew Jackson’s move to curtail the international bankers. The Rothschilds lost the first round when in 1832, President Jackson vetoed the move to renew the charter of the ‘Bank of the United States’ (a central bank controlled by the international bankers). In 1836 the bank went out of business.
In the years following Independence, a close business relationship had developed between the cotton growing aristocracy in the South and the cotton manufacturers in England. The European bankers decided that this business connection was America’s Achilles Heel, the door through which the young American Republic could be successfully attacked and overcome.
The Illustrated University History, 1878, p. 504, tells us that the southern states swarmed with British agents. These conspired with local politicians to work against the best interests of the United States. Their carefully sown and nurtured propaganda developed into open rebellion and resulted in the secession of South Carolina on December 29, 1860. Within weeks another six states joined the conspiracy against the Union, and broke away to form the Confederate States of America, with Jefferson Davis as President.
The plotters raided armies, seized forts, arsenals, mints and other Union property. Even members of President Buchanan’s Cabinet conspired to destroy the Union by damaging the public credit and working to bankrupt the nation. Buchanan claimed to deplore secession but took no steps to check it, even when a U.S. ship was fired upon by South Carolina shore batteries.
Shortly thereafter Abraham Lincoln became President, being inaugurated on March 4, 1861. Lincoln immediately ordered a blockade on Southern ports, to cut off supplies that were pouring in from Europe. The ‘official’ date for the start of the Civil War is given as April 12, 1861, when Fort Sumter in South Carolina was bombarded by the Confederates, but it obviously began at a much earlier date.
In December, 1861, large numbers of European Troops (British, French and Spanish) poured into Mexico in defiance of the Monroe Doctrine. This, together with widespread European aid to the Confederacy strongly indicated that the Crown was preparing to enter the war. The outlook for the North, and the future of the Union, was bleak indeed.
In this hour of extreme crisis, Lincoln appealed to the Crown’s perennial enemy, Russia, for assistance. When the envelope containing Lincoln’s urgent appeal was given to Czar Alexander II, he weighed it unopened in his hand and stated: “Before we open this paper or know its contents, we grant any request it may contain.”
Unannounced, a Russian fleet under Admiral Liviski, steamed into New York harbor on September 24, 1863, and anchored there, The Russian Pacific fleet, under Admiral Popov, arrived in San Francisco on October 12. Of this Russian act, Gideon Wells said: “They arrived at the high tide of the Confederacy and the low tide of the North, causing England and France to hesitate long enough to turn the tide for the North” (Empire of “The City,” p. 90).
History reveals that the Rothschilds were heavily involved in financing both sides in the Civil War. Lincoln put a damper on their activities when, in 1862 and 1863, he refused to pay the exorbitant rates of interest demanded by the Rothschilds and issued constitutionally-authorized, interest free United States notes. For this and other acts of patriotism Lincoln was shot down in cold-blood by John Wilkes Booth on April 14, 1865, just five days after Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia.
Booth’s grand-daughter, Izola Forrester, states in This One Mad Act that Lincoln’s assassin had been in close contact with mysterious Europeans prior to the slaying, and had made at least one trip to Europe. Following the killing, Booth was whisked away to safety by members of the Knights of the Golden Circle. According to the author, Booth lived for many years following his disappearance.
Undaunted by their initial failures to destroy the United States, the international bankers pursued their objective with relentless zeal. Between the end of the Civil War and 1914, their main agents in the United States were Kuhn, Loeb and Co. and the J. P. Morgan Co.
A brief history of Kuhn, Loeb and Co. appeared in Newsweek magazine on February 1, 1936: “Abraham Kuhn and Solomon Loeb were general merchandise merchants in Lafayette, Indiana, in 1850. As usual in newly settled regions, most transactions were on credit. They soon found out that they were bankers… In 1867, they established Kuhn, Loeb and Co., bankers, in New York City, and took in a young German immigrant, Jacob Schiff, as partner. Young Schiff had important financial connections in Europe. After ten years, Jacob Schiff was head of Kuhn, Loeb and Co., Kuhn having retured. Under Schiff’s guidance, the house brought European capital into contact with American industry.”
Schiff’s “important financial connections in Europe” were the Rothschilds and their German representatives, the M. M. Warburg Company of Hamburg and Amsterdam. Within twenty years the Rothschilds, through their Warburg-Schiff connection, had provided the capital that enabled John D. Rockefeller to greatly expand his Standard Oil empire. They also financed the activities of Edward Harriman (Railroads) and Andrew Carnegie (Steel).
At the turn of the 20th century the Rothschilds, not satisfied with the progress being made by their American operntions, sent one of their top experts, Paul Moritz Warburg, over to New York to take direct charge of their assault upon the only true champion of individual liberty and prosperity — the United States.
At a hearing of the House Committee on Banking and Currency in 1913, Warburg revealed that he was “a member of the banking firm of Kuhn, Loeb and Co. I came to this country in 1902, having been born and educated in the banking business in Hamburg, Germany, and studied banking in London and Paris, and have gone all around the world….”
In the late 1800s, people didn’t study banking in London and “all around the world” unless they had a special mission to perform!
Early in 1907, Jacob Schiff, the Rothschild-owned boss of Kuhn, Loeb and Co., in a speech to the New York Chamber of Commerce, warned that “unless we have a Central Bank with adequate control of credit resources, this country is going to undergo the most severe and far reaching money panic in its history.”
Shortly thereafter, the United States plunged into a monetary crisis that had all the earmarks of a skilly planned Rothschild ‘job.’ The ensuing panic financially mined tens of thousands of innocent people across the country — and made billions for the banking elite. The purpose for the ‘crisis’ was two-fold:
(1) To make a financial ‘killing’ for the Insiders, and (2) To impress on the American people the ‘great need’ for a central bank.
Paul Warburg told the Banking and Currency Committee: “In the Panic of 1907, the first suggestion I made was, ‘let us have a national clearing house’ [Central Bank]. The Aldrich Plan [for a Central Bank] contains many things that are simply fundamental rules of banking. Your aim must be the same….”
Digging deep into their bag of deceitful practices, the international bankers pulled off their greatest coup to date — the creation of the privately owned Federal Reserve System, which placed control of the finances of the United States securely in the hands of the power-crazed money monopolists. Paul Warburg became the ‘Fed’s’ first chairman!
Congressman Charles Lindbergh put his finger firmly on the truth when he stated, just after the ‘Federal’ Reserve Act was passed by a depleted Congress on December 23, 1913: “The Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President [Wilson] signs this Bill, the invisible government of the monetaary power will be legalized….The greatest crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill.”
Having consolidated their financial grip on most of the European nations by the middle of the last century, the international bankers worked feverishly to extend their sphere of influence to the ends of the earth in preparation for their final assault on the United States — a nation which, through its unique Constitution, remained free.
In the decades that followed it became apparent that, in order to achieve their goal of world domination, they would have to instigate a series of world wars which would result in leveling of the old world in preparation for the construction of the New World Order. This plan was outlined in graphic detail by Albert Pike, the Sovereign Grand Commander of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry and the top Illuminist in America. In a letter to Guisseppe Mazzini dated August 15, 1871. Pike stated that the first world war was to be fomented in order to destroy Czarist Russia — and to place that vast land under the direct control of Illuminati agents. Russia was then to be used as a ‘bogey man’ to further the aims of the Illuminati worldwide.
World War II was to be fomented through manipulation of the differences that existed between the German Nationalists and the Political Zionists. This was to result in an expansion of Russian influence and the establishment of a state of Israel in Palestine.
The Third World War was planned to result form the differences stirred up by Illuminati agents between the Zionists and the Arabs. The conflict was planned to spread worldwide. The llluminati, said the letter, planned to “unleash the Nihilists and Atheists” and “provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass [directionl, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view, a manifestation which will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquored and exterminated at the same time.”
At the time Pike wrote this remarkable leaflet there were five different ideologies extant on the world scene and involved in a “struggle for space and power.” These were:
1. The secret ideology of the international bankers or the Illuminati as laid out in Fourth Reich Of The Rich. Their aim was the creation of a One World Government to be ruled over by the “Illuminated ones” at the top.
2. The Russian “Pan-Slavic” ideology which was originally conceived by William the Great and expounded in his will. According to A.H. Granger, the author of England World Empire, 1916, p. 173, this ideology called for the elimination of Austria and Germany, then the conquest of India and Persia and ends with the words: “…which will ensure the subjugation of Europe.”
3. The ideology of “Asia for the Asiatics” as expounded by the Japanese. This called for a confederation of Asian nations dominated by Japan.
4. The ideology of Pan Germanism which called for German political control over the European continent, freedom from the Crown’s restrictions on the high seas and the adoption of an “open door” policy in trade and commerce with the rest of the world.
5. Pan-American or the ideology of “America for the Americans.” This called for “trade and friendship with all, alliances with none.” Secretary of State Root stated in 1906 that, under this ideology which was given expression in the Monroe Doctrine of 1823, we are “debarred from sharing in the political aims, interests, or responsibilities of Europe, just as by the equally potential doctrine, now nearly a century old, the European powers are excluded from sharing or interfering in the political concerns of the sovereign states of the Western Hemisphere.”
If the plans of the international banker/llluminati cabal were to be brought to fruition, Russia, Germany, Japan and the United States would have to be brought to their knees in unconditional surrender, poverty and ignominy.
The llluminati plan for world conquest, referred to by Albert Pike, was a diabolical masterpiece of Luciferian ingenuity that would take the lives of hundreds of millions of human beings and cost hundred of billions of dollars in its accomplishment.
The plan that the Illuminati devised to accomplish their world conquering goal is as simple as it is effective. Along the way towards the accomplishment of their final objective this plan has been adapted by the international bankers and their comrades in arms around the globe to amass vast fortunes in real estate. As we shall see. the implimentation of the plan has been so smoothly executed that it has frequently won applause from the ranks of those it is destroying. Their plan can be called Urban Renewal.
It has been said that there are three types of people:
1. Those who make things happen. 2. Those who watch things happen, and 3. Those who wonder what happened.
The vast majority of mankind find themselves in the last two categories. Most have “eyes to see” but don’t “see” what is happening. Most have “ears that hear” but don’t “understand” what IS happening — LOCALLY, NATIONALLY OR INTERNATIONALLY.

Thanks, Jock, for providing the link to the article on Prison Planet in support of your latest post. In its opening sentence, the article states that a brigade of the army will be “carrying out Homeland patrols” beginning October 1. But that appears to be completely false. The brigade will just be in training for possible use in an emergency.
So unless you can provide some credible evidence that the brigade is actually already scheduled to conduct patrols beginning October 1, I’m afraid I’m going to have to assess you a Whopper for that misstatement of fact.
Also, there is of course a big difference between conducting patrols in an emergency and a general declaration of martial law. You made that leap all by yourself, again without any apparent evidence. So that’s another Whopper.
“Coming soon to a neighborhood near you” is a further misstatement of fact, because the training activity is being conducted only in Georgia. I’m going to give you credit for a little harmless hyperbole on this one, so that only counts as a Ding.
Two Whoppers and a Ding adds up to five of Davy’s Demerits.
For those who may still be worried about it, here is the link to the original article in the Army Times:

David, your vendetta against Jock appears to be getting the better of you. I’d hate to see your new demerit system swamp itself so quickly. But Jock’s source here is the Army Times and Amy Goodman. Everything Amy says in this clip appears to be fully backed up by the army’s own press release.
This issue Jock reports is not new. The ACLU raised a stink when the rules first began to be relaxed in 1999:
Jock may be applying a little rhetorical flourish, but with all due respect, you are the one making the leap too far when you label any of this a misstatement of fact.
Fact: Starting October 1st, a brigade of the army will be deployed “for the first time” on an “enduring mission” on U.S. soil that includes “… help with civil unrest and crowd control. The soldiers are learning to use so-called nonlethal weapons designed to subdue unruly or dangerous individuals and crowds.”
With respect to your first “Whopper,” the referenced “Army Times” article and Amy Goodman are both credible evidence that U.S. Army brigades stand ready as of October 1st deploy against citizens within the U.S.
With respect to your second “Whopper,” first you selectively redefine the term “martial law”, and then fault Jock for failing to back up your definition. That’s a no no. For most people, the term “martial law” adequately captures the concept of a national army deployed within the country against citizens for purposes of “civil unrest and crowd control.”
Finally, with respect to your “ding”, I think most people are comfortable that the idea of the army deployed against civilians anywhere within the country is close enough to a “neighborhood near you.”
Frankly, I think there is true cause for concern with this new mission. What is going to cause that “civil unrest”? Who will be among the “unruly” “crowd” to be controlled?
Perchance you and me?


david September 24, 2008 at 11:47 pm

Don’t think you read my post too carefully, Anon #9.
1. Jock’s source is not Army times but Prison Planet. Prison Planet misquotes Army times. Amy Goodman does not misquote, but then she does not claim the brigades are actually assigned to any missions yet.
2. I didn’t redefine martial law. Just used it in its ordinary sense.
3. “neighborhood” near Ojai does not mean Georgia.
Got no vendetta against Jock… only against Material and Demonstrable Misstatements of Fact.
Demerits stand.

Facts are like trees: put enough of them together in one place and you have a forest. Focus on a few fact-trees and you can develop a theory that there is in fact no forest at all.
Thanks, Tommy, for the info on the house of the red shield. Again we have the problem of a believable theory based on what appear to be historical facts.
One person’s facts are another’s fractal. Such is the power of perception powered largely by the unconscious. Something’s happening here but you don’t know what it is, do you Mr. Jones?
Is martial army law coming to the land of the free? It doesn’t take a weatherman to tell which way the wind is blowing. That’s a fact…or is it a theory in fact?
My own theory is that love is a fact. So even if the army comes to our neighborhood, I’ll make love, not war.
Will the army be paid by the red shields? Who knows? Depend on your theory and your facts. For me, hearts are trump, at least in the game of love. Save your trump.

The Federal Reserve of which is unconsitutional (private bankers not allowed to loan money to US govt.) in its originality and never ratified or approved by Congress (another violation to the US Constitution).
Does it ever make you wonder why unifying Canada, US and Mexico together is of such importance. Look how quickly the US dollar has been decimated ‘by design’ by these International banksters.
Once our economy collapses, those that caused it to crash benfit in the end. The bailout is not from the govt!!! its from these SAME international banking elite. The mass media keeps calling it a govt. bailout. The Fed Reserve is NOT the govt. but rather a private cartel of international banksters looking to create a NWO with them at the helm of the new Socialist World Empire and everyone else the surf
Can we allow this to happen?
Dissolve the Fed Reserve and investigate its role in the collapse of the US economy.
Audit the IMF, the World Bank and the Bank of International Settlements of which all are owned and run by the same cartel (Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Warburg etc.)

The Baron September 26, 2008 at 10:19 am

N M Rothschild & Sons, the UK-based investment bank founded in 1811, known as Rothschild.
N M Rothschild & Sons (more commonly known simply as Rothschild) is the investment bank company of the Rothschild family. It was founded in the City of London in 1811, and is now a global firm with over 40 offices around the world. The firm acts as a financial advisor to some of the most important companies, largest governments, and wealthiest families in the world.
In the late 18th century and early 19th century, Mayer Amschel Rothschild rose to become one of Europe’s most powerful bankers in the principality of Hesse-Kassel (Hesse-Cassel) in the Holy Roman Empire. In pursuit of expansion, he appointed his sons to start banking operations in the various capitals of Europe, including sending his third son, Nathan Mayer Rothschild, to England. Nathan Mayer Rothschild first settled in Manchester, where he established a business in finance and textile trading. He later moved to London, where he founded N M Rothschild & Sons in 1811, through which he made a fortune trading bills of exchange.
According to notable historian and professor at Harvard University Niall Ferguson, “For most of the nineteenth century, N. M. Rothschild was part of the biggest bank in the world which dominated the international bond market. For a contemporary equivalent, one has to imagine a merger between Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, J. P. Morgan and probably Goldman Sachs too—as well, perhaps, as the International Monetary Fund, given the nineteen-century Rothschild’s role in stabilising the finances of numerous governments.”
Early 19th century
During the early part of the 19th century, the Rothschild’s London bank took a leading part in managing and financing the subsidies that the British government transferred to its allies during the Napoleonic Wars. Through the creation of a network of agents, couriers and shippers, the bank was able to provide funds to the armies of the Duke of Wellington in Portugal and Spain. In 1818 the Rothschild bank arranged a £5 million loan to the Prussian government and the issuing of bonds for government loans. The providing of other innovative and complex financing for government projects formed a mainstay of the bank’s business for the better part of the century. N M Rothschild & Sons financial strength in the City of London became such that by 1825-6 , the bank was able to supply enough coin to the Bank of England to enable it to avert a liquidity crisis.
Late 19th century
Nathan Mayer’s eldest son, Lionel de Rothschild (1808-1879) succeeded him as head of the London branch. Under Lionel the bank financed the British government’s 1875 purchase of a controlling interest in the Suez Canal. Lionel also began to invest in railways as his uncle James had been doing in France. In 1869, Lionel’s son, Alfred de Rothschild (1842-1918), became a director of the Bank of England, a post he held for 20 years. Alfred was one of those who represented the British Government at the 1892 International Monetary Conference in Brussels.
The Rothschild bank funded Cecil Rhodes in the development of the British South Africa Company and Leopold de Rothschild (1845-1917) administered Rhodes’s estate after his death in 1902 and helped to set up the Rhodes Scholarship scheme at Oxford University. In 1873 de Rothschild Frères in France and N M Rothschild & Sons of London joined with other investors to acquire the Spanish government’s money-losing Rio Tinto copper mines. The new owners restructured the company and turned it into a profitable business. By 1905, the Rothschild interest in Rio Tinto amounted to more than 30 percent. In 1887, the French and English Rothschild banking houses loaned money to, and invested in, the De Beers diamond mines in South Africa, becoming its largest shareholders.
20th and 21st centuries
The First World War marked a change of fortune and emphasis for Rothschild. After the War, the Rothschild banks began a steady transition towards the raising of finance for commercial and industrial concerns, including the London Underground. In 1938, the Austrian Rothschilds’ interests were seized by the Nazis, bringing to an end more than a century at the heart of Central European banking. In France and Austria, the family was scattered for the duration of the Second World War. After the war, the British and French banks committed themselves to further developing their new operation in the United States, which was eventually to become Rothschild Inc, and increased focus on mergers and acquisitions and asset management. The 1980s gave birth to the international phenomenon of privatisation, where the Rothschilds were involved from the beginning and developed a pioneering role which spread out to over 30 countries worldwide.
Over this time, the London banking house continued under the management of Lionel Nathan de Rothschild (1882-1942) and his brother Anthony Gustav de Rothschild (1887-1961) and then to Sir Evelyn de Rothschild (b.1931). In 2003, following Sir Evelyn’s retirement as head of N M Rothschild & Sons of London, the English and French financial firms merged under the leadership of Baron David de Rothschild. All Rothschild offices around the world therefore now operate as one firm.
The only major non-family owner is Jardine Matheson, a hong which holds 20% of the main Rothschild company (Rothschild Continuation Holdings). The stake was acquired in 2005 from Royal & Sun Alliance through the Jardine Strategic subsidiary, which specializes in leveraging stakes to protect family owners.
Operations Overview
Rothschild is consistently in the top 10 global investment banks for M&A advisory. According to Thomson Financial data, in 2007 Rothschild announced 390 deals worth a total of $566bn, giving it 12.6% market share.[1] The firm is particularly strong in Europe, especially in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, and the Benelux countries, in each of which Rothschild consistently holds a top league table position. Rothschild’s strength also extends to Eastern Europe, Asia, and Latin America. The main anomaly is in North America, where the firm leads the market in restructuring, but has made few inroads in M&A advisory.
The firm competes against a wide range of investment banks, from conglomerates like Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan, to other M&A specialists like Lazard and Greenhill & Co.. For comparison, Lazard is slightly smaller, and in 2007 announced 263 deals worth a total of $529bn; and Greenhill is about half the size, announcing 34 deals worth a total of $239bn.[2]
Rothschild operates through three divisions:
* Investment banking
* Corporate banking
* Private banking and trust
Next to these three main divisions, Rothschild is also active in real estate, venture capital, and asset management.
Rothschild’s headquarters are in the City of London, the chief financial district of London. The firm is now a global investment bank with over 40 offices around the world.
[edit] New Court headquarters
Rothschild’s headquarters in London have been continuously located at the same site over the past two centuries, at New Court, St. Swithin’s Lane. In the 1950s, the firm outgrew its New Court headquarters and took up space in nearby Chetwynd House. Eventually, in October 1962, at the suggestion of Evelyn de Rothschild, the firm demolished New Court and built a 6-story glass-and-steel building on the same site.
In the 1980s and 1990s, Rothschild outgrew its New Court headquarters for a second time, and now operates out of several buildings on St. Swithin’s Lane, including 1 King William Street, which was originally the site of the first Gresham Club. As before, the firm has decided to demolish the New Court and build a taller 15-story glass-and-steel building, again on the same site. This third reincarnation of New Court was designed by Rem Koolhaas and will provide 20,992 square metres of office space (with associated plant, servicing and car parking). The new building will open up views of St Stephen Walbrook church from its lobby, and views of the London skyline from a roof-top “sky pavilion”.[3] Construction will take place over a 30-month period from March 2008 to August 2010, so the building will be completed shortly after Rothschild celebrates its 200-year anniversary.

Before Rockefeller, There Was Rothschild
Greedy resource seizure put England into desperate financial straits.
From 1642 to 1649, goldsmiths and successful merchants helped finance
the English Revolution as well as Oliver Cromwell’s pursuit and
execution of King Charles. The government of King William III (reigned
from February 13, 1689 to March 8, 1702) was in desperate need of
money. William Patterson, seeing an exploitive opportunity, assembled
a cartel of wealthy men who agreed to loan the king £1.2 million on
the condition that the king pay 8% interest per year. Additionally,
the cartel wanted the king to grant a charter creating The Bank of
England (established July 27, 1694) which would give the cartel the
“sole and exclusive right” to issue notes unprotected by bank assets. [1]
Low-risk loans, used for war, were secured by taxes which created
abject poverty for the majority of Britain’s citizens. Within four
short years, the national debt had increased ten times. Britain
continued to incur huge war debts during the 1700s. Meanwhile,
America, Britain’s prosperous colony, was printing debt-free money.
Britain then passed the Currency Act of 1764 which deliberately
resulted in depression and severe unemployment in America. [2]
Mayer Amschel Bauer, born 1743 in Frankfort-On- The Main, was the son
of Moses Amschel Bauer. After his father’s death, Mayer served a three
year apprenticeship at the Bank of Oppenheimer in Hanover. Because of
his monetary skills, he became a junior partner. Mayer accrued
sufficient money to return to Frankfort and purchase his father’s
counting house located on Judenstrasse (Jew Street). The shop
displayed a red shield over the door, the emblem of the revolutionary-
minded Jews in Eastern Europe. Bauer adopted the name Rothschild, the
German word for `red shield’ and the infamous House of Rothschild was
born. [3]
In 1770, Mayer Amschel Rothschild married Gutta Schnapper. In that
same year, he retained Jewish-born, Adam Weishaupt, an apostate
Jesuit-trained professor of canon law, to revise and modernize
Illuminism, the worship of Satan, with the objective of world
domination and the imposition of the Luciferian ideology “upon what
would remain of the human race” after a final orchestrated
social-cataclysm. [4] In 1773, Mayer summoned twelve wealthy men to
Frankfort and asked them to pool their resources, then presented the
25-point plan that would enable them to gain control of the wealth,
natural resources and manpower of the entire world. [5]
Those 25 points are:
1. Use violence and terrorism rather than academic discussions.
2. Preach “Liberalism” to usurp political power.
3. Initiate class warfare.
4. Politicians must be cunning and deceptive – any moral code leaves a

Weishaupt, financed by Rothschild, had begun infiltrating the
well-established Continental Order of Freemasons with this satanical
doctrine. Weishaupt recruited 2,000 agents, “the most intelligent men
in the field of arts and letters, education, science, finance, and
industry.” Weishaupt instructed these well-paid individuals on the
best methods of bribing, manipulating and controlling people and the
press. [7]
Weishaupt reorganized the Illuminati by May 1, 1776. The word
Illuminati, derived from Lucifer, means “holder of the light.” The
plan deceptively uses the phrase “peace on earth” and necessitates the
destruction of all existing governments and religions through a
process of “dividing the masses into opposing camps in ever increasing
numbers on political, social, economic, and other issues.” People
would “fight and weaken themselves and gradually destroy national
governments and religious institutions. ” [8]
Mayer and Gutta had five daughters and five sons. The sons were
well-tutored in the `family business’ and “were imbued with the same
spirit of cunning and conquest.” Ultimately, Mayer’s sons established
or were positioned in banks in key European locations: Amschel Mayer
(1773-1855) in Frankfort, Salomon Mayer (1774-1855) in Vienna, James
Mayer (1792-1868) in Paris, Kalmann Mayer (1788-1855) in Naples and
Nathan Mayer (1777-1836), the most gifted, in London, where he founded
the Rothschild banking dynasty. Nathan created a system of world-wide
debits and credits and a new technique for “floating international
loans.” [9] Kalmann (Karl) became head of the occult group, the Alta
Vendita. [10]
The sons were “wizards” of finance and “fiendish calculators” who were
motivated by a “demonic drive” to succeed in their secret
undertakings. Regularly, Mayer recited from the Talmud while his
entire family sat raptly attentive. They courted no friendships but
used people as temporary steppingstones in furthering political
alliances that were profit-motivated. Marriages, if not near
incestuous, were arranged with the intent of preserving the Rothschild
fortune. Later, as the Rothschilds gained respectability, though some
viewed them as uncouth, they intermarried within other banking
families. In 1785, Mayer moved his family into a five story house at
148 Judengasse, Frankfurt. The Schiff family, also bankers, shared
this home. Jacob Schiff married Soloman’s daughter.[11]
Mayer had ingratiated himself to the `right people’ and in 1769,
became “a court agent for Prince William IX of Hesse-Kassel, who was
the grandson of George II of England, a cousin to George III, a nephew
of the King of Denmark, and a brother- in-law to the King of Sweden.
Before long, the House of Rothschild became the go between for big
Frankfurt bankers like the Bethmann Brothers, and Rueppell & Harnier.”
[12] Prince William, an extremely successful human flesh dealer and
Rothschild, his agent, rented out troops to Europe’s royal families. A
favorite customer, the British government, needed 16,800 Hessian
soldiers for which they paid the equivalent of $3 million. But, before
the soldiers could be paid for their services, William was forced to
“flee to Denmark,” leaving the money in Mayer’s care for
“safekeeping. ” Mayer viewed this money as a fortuitous “business”
opportunity and eventually gave the blood money to Nathan, who by
1809, had set up shop as a London banker. He invested at least 800,000
pounds in “gold from the East India Company.” [13]
Prince William, an early Blackwater-style, rent-a-troop entrepreneur
had amassed a huge fortune by the time he died. Apparently, citizens
rejected the low slave-soldier wages and resisted recruitment. Hired
guns cost more but are not culpable to government, increase enemy body
counts (for governments that actually count) and enrich
government-friendly corporate cronies, a benefit at election time.
Rumsfeld and Franks, early on, reminded Americans that “we don’t do
body counts.” [14]
Those Hessian soldiers would be used against the American patriots who
were tired of the excessive taxes extracted by the British to pay for
their endless wars and decided to expel the British and demand their
independence which led to the Revolutionary War. Alexander Hamilton, a
Rothschild agent, convinced George Washington to have the Rothschilds
finance the war. In 1791, with a big war debt to be paid, Hamilton set
up a central bank, owned by the Rothschilds and other foreigners
called the First Bank of the United States with a twenty-year charter.
Andrew Jackson later referred to them as a den of vipers. [15]
Congress rejected renewal of the charter and the bank was closed on
March 4, 1811 which ignited Rothschild’s wrath; he had controlling
stock. He declared – “Either the application for renewal of the
Charter is granted, or the United States will find itself in a most
disastrous war.” He then ordered British troops to “teach these
impudent Americans a lesson. Bring them back to Colonial status.” This
brought on the War of 1812, our second war with England, which
facilitated the re-chartering of the Bank of the United States.
The war raised our national debt from $45 million to $127 million.” [16]
When Nathan Rothschild asked the British Parliament to declare war,
the Prime Minister objected. He was assassinated by “a lone gunman” on
May 11, 1812. Parliament declared war on June 18, 1812. British troops
burned the White House and other government buildings including the
one that housed the ratification papers for the U.S. constitution.
President Madison, a perceptive politician, proposed the establishment
of a second central bank on December 5, 1815 which was created by
Congress on January 7, 1817. Nicholas Biddle, a Nathan Rothschild
protégé, became the bank’s president in 1822.
Mayer died on September 19, 1812. Through his will, he left one
billion franks to his five sons and “business” instructions pertaining
to marriage, total family control and absolute secrecy. Rothschild
policies include “total ruthlessness in all business dealings.” [17]
Everything is shrouded in secrecy; a characteristic they subtly impose
on their multitudes of minions who, through careful observation, have
discovered that discreetness is much more conducive to their general
well-being. Every money-making opportunity is just business – war,
terror, genocide, mass public plunder – all disguised with the `right
rhetoric’ for mass acceptability. The Rothschild family epitomized the
phrase `international banker.’ There really are evil-doers; they are
just not those that have been so publicly targeted!
In January 1814, Nathan had received a lucrative contract with the
British government to supply coinage to pay the British troops who
were fighting in the European balance-of-power playoff, the Napoleonic
War – both sides were financed by the House of Rothschild. From the
family’s huge network of cash-carrying couriers, Nathan received
`prior knowledge’ about the outcome of the Battle of Waterloo. He
manipulated “consuls” in the London Stock Exchange to create panic and
frenzied selling. He increased his fortune by 6500 times. [18] He
seized control the Bank of England and England’s economy. Three years
later he orchestrated a cash-coup in France. There would be many
staged cash-coups, world-wide, over the years. The Rothschilds
withdrew from the limelight and altered their procedures for fleecing
individuals and countries. They now “operate through and behind a wide
variety of fronts.” [19]
Adherence to the constitution would mean no foreign entanglements –
there would be “friendship to all, alliances with none.” There would
be no income tax, no inflation or national debt. If properly run, as
the constitution dictates, our God-given personal freedoms would allow
everyone to retain the fruits of their labor, leading to independence
and prosperity. Big European banks viewed America’s constitution which
authorized “no debt” money as a “major threat to their plans.” The
possibility of individual prosperity and independence would attract
the intelligence and wealth “of all countries.” Hence, according to
the Illuminati agenda, America had to be destroyed. [20]
With such freedom to prosper, the European bankers decided that the
“business connection” was “America’s Achilles’ heel.” The Rothschild
House, through their Warburg-Schiff connection, financed Rockefeller’ s
Standard Oil Empire, Edward Harriman (railroads) and Andrew Carnegie
(steel). These American business magnates would buy and control
politicians. To facilitate the progress of “their American
operations,” and the re-establishment of a central bank the
Rothschilds sent one of their top agents, Paul Moritz Warburg, to New
York in 1902 to take charge of their assault. Along with Jacob Schiff,
the Rothschild-owned head of Kuhn, Loeb and Company, Warburg managed
to create the banking crisis which led to the great cash-coup – the
privately-owned Federal Reserve System, the ultimate American slave

Here is a reasonably sober view regarding the significance of the Army’s deployment of troops on domestic soil:
David, perhaps the truth lies somewhere between your dismissal of any cause for concern, and Jock’s fear that a declaration of martial law is imminent?

Commenter #18:
Thanks for the reasonably sober view. However, maybe you didn’t notice the Update at the bottom of the article you cited:
“There’s no need to start manufacturing all sorts of scare scenarios about Bush canceling elections or the imminent declaration of martial law or anything of that sort.”
In addition, you have repeated the exaggeration that this brigade is going to be “deployed” in October. What is going to happen is that it is going to begin training for possible deployment.
If you can’t see a distinction between an Army unit TRAINING to be deployed IN AN EMERGENCY, and ACTUALLY being deployed IN THE ABSENCE of an emergency, I don’t know if I can reach you.
Nevertheless, I will make this deal:
If the First Brigade of the Third Army Division is deployed to enact martial law, not just in a neighborhood near us but anywhere in the United States, and not just on October 1 but any time during the month of October, then I will humbly beg Jock’s apology. In addition, I will rescind his demerits and will refrain from all further comments on the Ojai Post for a period of six months.
On the other hand, if the First Brigade of the Third Army Division is not deployed to enact martial law anywhere in the United States in the month of October, then Jock must beg my apology and refrain from posting any further articles on the Ojai Post for a period of six months.
OK, Jock??

Thanks, #17, for the post about the Rothchilds. I’ve read others here recently and yours is a nice summary with some additional info.
My mind is reverberating between fact vs. fiction. Some of it seems a bit simplistic and fundamentalist. On the other hand, the facts as we see them unfolding as I type almost demand such an explanation. The Rothchild masterplan of 1770 sounds almost too modern. But then fact is stranger than fiction. And if this Red Shield story is not made up, something like it should have been to explain the facts.
I was intrigued by this apostate Jesuit being the mastermind, since I was once a Catholic priest myself, although a peaceful Franciscan as opposed to a warrior Jesuit. What also gets my interest is the connection with satanism. Talk about selling your soul to the devil. I was trained to do exorcism but casting out this devil? God himself would hesitate where angels fear to tread.
So I sit and wonder. Regardless, these questions are being raised right here in Ojai. Will miracles never cease? Damn. And I thought Ojai was mostly a dead town. There’s life in the old gal after all. She may yet become the talk of the world town.
I’ve still got this gut feeling that the Rothchilds are a cover for something else. But what? The Vatican? A Jewish-Christian secret alliance? Father Weishaupt the Jesuit as double agent? Judeo-Christianity in spades? Both expect a messiah and a rapture, actually in Jerusalem. Both are being backed into a corner nowadays. Their roots tap into deep patriarchy.
Damn. Is this a create your own reality game like Eco wrote about in one of his books? Am I nuts half believing in this conspiracy matrix? Am I getting sucked into something way over my head? Help!
I’ll tell you one thing. If it weren’t for love I’d be long gone, swept away. Those who have read my scribblings have learned to pass on by when they see my name. No wonder I was called on my “crackpot nonsense” as a card carrying member of the “fringe element” by the present Ojai mayor, and that in council, and non-agendized. Maybe I should have sued them for 10M. Think the ACLU would have come to my defense, Anonymous Jeff?
Oh well, life is short. When the grim reaper comes, he’ll pass me by too because I’m not alive enough. Yet. But I’m getting there. You folks and your Ojai nuttown are to blame. I was “OK until I fell in love with you.”

sorry, i meant beg Jock’s pardon (not apology)…. and vice versa….
