1800′s Campaign Posters Attacking Free Silver

Bankster Campaign posters from the 1800′s attacking ‘Free Silver’ demonstrate that the cartel’s ostracization of silver is nothing new.

  1. I Guess It Didn’t Work On Me. LMAO  Great Posters Doc. Cartel As Usual

  2. History remembered. where in the world did you find these DOC. Since the 1,800′s they’ve been trying to keep silver down? News to all of you at CNBC (Fast Money Dummy), it hasn’t worked very well. I think I’ll increase my stack.

  3. LOL :-)


  4. “As a congressman, Garfield became an expert on financial matters by
    serving on key committees. He held various positions, including chairman
    of the Banking and Currency Committee…”

    “During Garfield’s congressional terms, debates raged between legislators
    who demanded that all U.S. money be backed by gold and the “Silverites”
    and “Greenbackers,” who wanted to issue paper currency and coin silver
    more freely in an attempt to alleviate pressing debts, especially those
    of struggling farmers. Garfield advocated hard money policies backed by
    gold, making him a favorite with eastern “Gold Bug” Republicans.”

    “He was also a member of the House Ways and Means Committee. In that
    capacity, he advocated hard money policies despite the soft money, or
    inflationary, sentiment of his home district.

    He opposed all efforts to
    inflate the supply of money through the issuance of paper currency
    un-backed by gold; use of the unbacked greenback dollars (printed during
    the Civil War) to redeem government bonds; or free and unlimited coinage
    of silver into coins. This hard money stance made him a favorite with
    eastern “Gold Bug” Republicans in their fight to keep the nation’s money
    supply from expanding.

    As creditors, “Gold Bugs,” usually bankers and
    wholesalers, did not want the money they had loaned out to be paid back
    with less valuable or inflated paper dollars—dollars that were worth
    less in their purchasing power than the dollars they had advanced to
    their debt-owing customers and business clients.”

    “In the presidential election of 1876, Garfield supported Ohio’s
    governor, Rutherford B. Hayes, for President, in part because of Hays’s
    “sound money” position…”

    “Conkling’s friend and protege, Chester A. Arthur, former customs
    collector at the Port of New York, received the party’s nomination for
    vice president with Garfield’s endorsement. Conkling warned Arthur
    against accepting the slot, predicting Garfield’s defeat and urging him
    to “drop it as you would a red hot shoe from the forge.”

    “Arthur’s nomination had been organized behind Garfield’s back. Garfield
    reluctantly approved, knowing he needed Stalwart support to emerge
    victorious.”

    “In the important Treasury post, Garfield broke openly with Conkling when
    he appointed William Windom of Minnesota; Garfield insisted that he
    wanted someone free from the influence of eastern bankers.”

    Did the Banksters Kill James Garfield?

    President James Garfield, who was murdered in 1881, is hardly ever mentioned in State brainwashing centers (schools).

    Here’s some interesting quotes.

    He who controls the money supply of a nation controls the nation.

    Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce.

    Allegedly, the latter was said during his inauguration speech.

    This quote is also interesting.

    The
    chief duty of the National Government in connection with the currency
    of the country is to coin money and declare its value. Grave doubts have
    been entertained whether Congress is authorized by the Constitution to
    make any form of paper money legal tender. The present issue of United
    States notes has been sustained by the necessities of war; but such
    paper should depend for its value and currency upon its convenience in
    use and its prompt redemption in coin at the will of the holder, and not
    upon its compulsory circulation. These notes are not money, but
    promises to pay money. If the holders demand it, the promise should be
    kept.

    It seems that James Garfield knew that the
    financial industry was one big scam. Even in 1881 before the creation of
    the Federal Reserve, a regulated financial industry was forced to
    operate under corrupt fractional reserve principles.

    That quote
    makes it sound like James Garfield was planning to issue more
    Greenbacks, like President Lincoln did to finance the Civil War. The
    banksters are *VERY* hostile to credit-based fiat money directly spent
    into circulation by the government. Such money does not come with
    debt-strings attached, and helps people escape the chains of debt
    slavery. In the present, deficit spending is financed by Treasury Bonds,
    which are owned by the banksters. The only reason the Federal
    government doesn’t directly spend money into circulation is that
    contradicts the interests of the banksters.

    Even though the
    banking cartel has a lot of power, they sometimes make a mistake and let
    someone with a clue become President. James Garfield is an example of
    such an error. Such mistakes are easily corrected via an assassination.
    That both eliminates a threat and sends a message to all other
    politicians, making sure they don’t behave too honestly.

  5. Demonetization of Silver, An Act of War & The Consolidation of the United States by J.P. Morgan

     April 20th, 2012  sv
    morgansilverdollar

    History is just that: HIS-STORY. It is a play conjured by entrenched interests who have time and history on their side. The macro-events of daily life are not the effect of democratic processes or chance, but, instead, the execution of all things by powers-that-be, with 24 hour think-tanks and the bloodline of civilization, rule of money, to their advantage.

    The 1873 Coinage Act listed all the coins to be minted under the legislation. It omitted the silver dollar, and because there was much demand for silver beyond monetary, as well as its strength through tradition, not much was changed – at first.

    The act was sprung from London. As silver was demonetized in France, England and Holland in 1872, capital—approximately $500,000—was raised so that Ernest Seyd could head to United States, as an agent of foreign bond holders, finance capitalists and elitists centered on the Rothschild Empire, to achieve the same: the demonetization of silver. This was stated in the Congressional Globe of April 9, 1872, page 2304:

    Ernest Seyd of London, a distinguished writer and bullionist, who is now here, has given great attention to the subject of mint and coinage. After having examined the first draft of this bill (for the demonetization of silver) he made various sensible suggestions, which the committee adopted and embodied in the bill.

    Injury inflicted upon the people of the United States as silver was demonetized was critical. What ensued in the form of The Panic of 1873 represented one of the most disastrous episodes in U.S history. The years of 1873 until silver remonetization in 1878 brought bankruptcies and financial disaster to millions. The economic distress, as concluded by prominent statesmen of the time, and many analysts since, was caused by “the shrinkage in the volume of money.”

    This was an effect of the departing of a flexible bimetallic standard in favor of a monometallic standard, a gold standard.

    For background, throughout most the course of American history, leading up to the demonetization of silver in the year 1873, the dollar was defined in monetary context as composed of either 22.5 grains of gold or 270 grains of silver. This meant that, in practice, the legal price of silver in comparison with gold was 16 ounces of silver to 1 ounce of gold.

    And so, in the late nineteenth century silver, alongside gold, took center-stage in American politics, though few understood the issue. The issue, however, was so key to the running of the United States, that everybody since has been affected by it.

    The problem arose with the question of what monetary standard to adopt and implement. The national debate around the issue was a focal point in the last two presidential elections of the century.

    In Populist circles called the Crime of 1873, the event itself was the demonetization of silver under the Coinage Act of the same year. In 1792, Alexander Hamilton had set the United States on a bimetallic standard, meaning the country had the flexibility of favoring either metal depending on economic circumstances.

    When silver was demonetized, millions of individuals and families lost their savings overnight. The argument could then be made that the demonetization of silver was clearly economic war and, perhaps, genocide on those who saved through the metal; namely peasants, farmers and workers.

    As numerous countries, in concert, moved from the prior bimetallic standard to a gold standard, they sold their silver in favor of gold. The market silver price of gold increased from the standard 16:1 to 40:1.

    For almost 100 years, from 1792 onwards, the United States practiced a gold/silver bimetallic standard at a ratio of 15:1 and 16:1, except for the Greenback period of the Civil War. Despite considerable gold and silver discoveries in the 1850s, the policy pursued by policy makers was one of contraction. See, while gold and silver supplies were expanding alongside the growing economy, setting the stage for their continued use as monetary elements, Northern bankers and internationalists were anticipating a massive consolidation of the economy.

    The years 1873 to 1896 were years of worldwide deflation, especially in the United States. The money stock was outpaced, partially due to demonetization, but also by by the rise in output during the period and the monetization of the economy through increasingly centralized banking power. So, as the amount of money in circulation was contracting, the amount of concentration of the money was intensifying as well.

    Producers of silver, the peasants and other classes injured by the new monetary dictum favored the Populist Party and William Jennings Bryan, who was a candidate for the Democrats during the election cycle of 1896. He rallied his supporters behind a bimetallist and progressive platform, which included women vote, the income tax, and an end to American imperialism.

    Urban voters, bondholders, bankers and financiers united behind the Republicans and their nominee William Mckinley. Such characters generally preferred gold to silver, and so were therefore referred to as gold bugs. These gold bugs benefited greatly from the demonetization of silver, since bonds then could only be paid for in gold, of which they held millions of dollars worth.

    That seventh decade of the eighteenth century, the rest of the century was decided. Totalitarian measures in the United States would be expanded and all races would be tightly controlled, when possible. Financial and political elites, supported by their brothers in London, would organize the country under their lead and roll out the “greatest march of economic growth in human history.” The labored classes toiled under this program. All labor was exploited, including black, white, Chinese, European, female who were often setup in a racial caste system, “in such a way as to create separate levels of oppression-a skillful terracing to stabilize the pyramid of wealth.”

    By 1895 the gold reserve of the United States was non-existent, and twenty-six New York City banks held $129 million in gold in their vaults. The cartel of bankers headed by J.P. Morgan & Company, August Belmont & Company, the National City Bank, and others offered the government gold for bonds. President Grover Cleveland obeyed and the bankers turned around and resold the bonds for $18 million profit..

    A journalist wrote: “If a man wants to buy beef, he must go to the butcher…. If Mr. Cleveland wants much gold, he must go to the big banker.”

    Morgan said: “We do not want financial convulsions and have one thing one day and another thing another day.” He had tied the railroads together, all of them to banks, and banks to insurance companies. By 1900, he controlled 100,000 miles of railroad, half of the mileage in the country.

    The consolidation was done, mostly, legally, as the courts and government played along. The control of industry by finance became more acute during the period, as illustrated by the control of railroads by the House of Morgan and bankers Kuhn, Loeb, and Company. J.P. Morgan had played a role in the Civil War. A son of a banker who first sold stocks for the railroads and luxurious commissions, his entrepreneurial spirit was made clear when he, during the Civil War, bought five thousand rifles for $3.50 and sold them for $22 each to a general in the field. The rifles, defective, shot off the thumbs of soldiers. Whilst congressional committee made note of this in a report, a federal judge upheld the deal as valid and legal.

    Morgan did not serve in the Civil War; instead, he avoided it by paying $300 to a substitute. The same is true of John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, Philip Armour, Jay Gould, and James Mellon.

    A billion dollars in assets had three insurance companies dominated by the Morgan cartel. Loius Brandeis, in his book Other People’s Money, before his days as a Supreme Court Justice, wrote: “They control the people through the people’s own money.”

    As a bookkeeper in Cleveland, John D. Rockefeller started. He then became a merchant, accumulated money, and decided that if he could control oil refineries, he could control the industry. By 1870 he had set up Standard Oil Company out of Ohio, and made esoteric agreements with railroads to ship his oil with them if they allowed him rebates on their prices.

    By 1899, The Standard Oil Company was a holding company with the stock of many, many companies. The capital equated to $110 million, with a profit of $45 million annually. John D. Rockefeller was worth $200. He had a stake not before long in iron, copper, coal, shipping, and banking (Chase Manhattan Bank). Profits would be $81 million a year, and the Rockefeller fortune would quickly total two billion dollars.

    According to a Senate report of the early twentieth century, Morgan sat on the board of forty-eight corporations; Rockefeller, thirty-seven corporations. Their reign meant pain and suffering for most individuals.

    I have a little boy at home,
    A pretty little son;
    I think sometimes the world is mine
    In him, my only one. . . .

    ‘Ere dawn my labor drives me forth;
    Tis night when I am free;
    A stranger am I to my child;
    And stranger my child to me.

    The demonetization of silver paralleled a time in United States history of deep wealth re-allocation. Powerful interests with the support of international power brokers managed to restructure the landscape of the U.S economy and its politics. Forty years after demonetization, the Federal Reserve was set up and the First World War was beginning.

    Power plays like demonetization of silver happen swiftly and can leave lasting effects over decades and centuries. With one decree, the course of the future can be forever remapped and a new world can come into view. What happened to silver in 1873 is the same thing that is happening to the U.S Dollar, The Federal Reserve Note, in this, the twenty-first century.

    Just as the so-called “silver fish” awoke one morning in 1873 without savings, so too will their progeny of today, one day wake up having saved in a money no longer money.

  6. Here in Nevada (the Silver State) we used to have the Silver Party, from 1892-1911.

    The Silver Party was a political party in the United States, most successful in Nevada, active from 1892-1911. The party supported a platform of bimetallism and “Free Silver.”

    In 1892 the several Silver Party candidates were elected to Nevada public offices. The party’s success continued throughout the decade, culminating in the election of Governors John E. Jones and Reinhold Sadler. Nevada was the only state to elect both Senators and Congressional representatives from the Silver Party.

    Nationally the Silver Party aligned with the Populist Party and to a lesser extent with the Silver Republican Party. By 1902 most pro-silver factions in Nevada had been absorbed by the state Democratic Party organization.

  7. The interesting thing about the 4 presidents assassinated, and 1 candidate (RFK) and two major attempts G Ford and R Reagan is the person next in line.  McKinley succeeded by Roosevelt, a major progressive president.  There was a nearly successful attempt on TR’s life when he ran for presidency in 1916.  I am am sure the Fed and major industrialists had a hand in that.   JFK is easy to figure since his death lead to Johnson assuming office.   Johnson kept the seat warm for Nixon, a shoe-in for the office. Kennedy go crossways with the Fed and CIA so he has to go.His brother, RFK,  was too close to winning his nomination so he had to go.  Teddy was so terrified due to his knowledge of what happened to his brothers, he never got the gumption to make a serious run.  Mary Joe Kopechne was side bar to this.

     Nixon conveniently signed the E.O. taking us off the gold system and then was disposed of by gruesome if somewhat less bloody means  He served his purpose.  His successor, Gerald Ford , had two attempts on his life.  Curiously enough the assassin were women, very unusual for any assassin   Both were unsuccessful since they made their attempts with the wrong guns.  If the attempt was successful, Rockefeller would have taken office. Reagan was in the same boat when Hinkley tried to take him out.  George Bush, Mr CIA would have taken over.  So the next man in line is key to seeing assassination attempts in their full story. 

  8. Sidebar to the above post.  Since Reagan, there has not been an attempt on the life of a president, including Bush I, Clinton, Bush II or Obama.  Makes you think that someone somewhere seems satisfied with the status quo of the presidential lineage.  Romney is no accident.  He is a Goldman Sachs boy through and through.

  9. THE SILVER STEALERS

    Much has been said of Blythe Masters of JPMorganChase being the
    key string puller in the silver short fraud. It’s troubling enough that
    she’s from England, but consider also that http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blythe_Masters
    stated her as a director as of May 2010 of the National Dance Institute
    (what’s that got to do with silver stealers—PLENTY!) At http://cityfile.com/profiles/jenny-morgenthau
    we see Jenny Morgenthau, granddaughter of Pilgrims Society member,
    grand scale silver stealer Henry Morgenthau Jr. is an NDI director and
    also at http://www.nationaldance.org/about_board.htm
    we notice a Rothschild on the NDI board. In scouting for an image of
    Blythe, I received a Norton Anti-Virus notice several times that an
    attack on my computer was blocked! In any event she’s under orders from
    Jamie Dimon, who I’d bet my last zinc cent is a silver stealing Pilgrims
    Society member. NDI could provide for contact in an innocuous setting.

    There are enough instances of Pilgrims Society members taking actions
    against silver to establish a decisive pattern of planned intent to
    cripple silver prices, to destroy silver as currency, to inhibit
    ownership of gold and silver from the highest official levels, that we
    will resume showing a procession of these revolting thieves as follows,
    and it is no complete listing, for in addition to concerns of
    limitations of readers time, information on who these Pilgrims are
    remains fragmentary. Leaked lists, a few rare volumes, one instance of
    Congressional testimony on August 19, 1940 and a few other sources such
    as Who’s Who volumes are all we have to go on. I am grateful to Mr. Joel
    Van Der Reijden of the Institute for the Study of Globalization for
    forwarding to me a 1980 list of The Pilgrims in exchange for the 1969
    Pilgrims of Great Britain list I was able to provide to him. He in turn
    appreciates his quiet source in the U.S. who came across the list and
    was so thoughtful as to forward it to him. We are hopeful of additional
    cooperative efforts in times to come. I was mentioned at http://www.mail-archive.com/cia-drug…/msg04649.html —

    “Just before I wanted to upload all the updates, including those done in
    the 1001 and the Jason Group membership lists, Charles Savoie, the No. 1
    Pilgrims Society researcher, decided to share some new info he had come
    across. One of those things is this simple (quite amusing) New York
    Daily News gossip article, which confirms the membership of Richard C.
    Holbrooke and Peter G. Peterson. As you can see in my intro article, I
    have long suspected Peterson of being a Pilgrims Society member. Talk
    about having some good luck.”

    If you ask me, Van Der Reijden is the number 1; so, by such examples,
    may the metals community make their goals the primary importance, rather
    than personality contests or popularity rankings. Peterson is possibly
    David Rockefeller’s single most important functionary. I offer $5,000
    for any Pilgrims list dated 2000 or more recently, subject to
    verification by genealogy, institutional, corporate and diplomatic
    connections. We need to know who the high Crown agents are currently in
    North America. This is no incitement to any illegal act; you will be
    asked how you came by the document! The most appropriate means to obtain
    the list is by Congressional subpoena, since the organization is not
    cooperative. Let them refuse and be held in contempt of Congress! This
    is the best route to follow; otherwise the incentive stands.

    Sir Henry Strakosch, Pilgrims of Great Britain and chairman of Union
    Corporation of South Africa, gold miners, starting in 1924, was a member
    of the Royal Commission on Indian Currency and Finance that recommended
    India’s silver be demonetized and the country switched to a fake gold
    standard, under which only persons holding the equivalent of over $8,000
    U.S. in paper rupees could exchange them for gold. China Weekly Review
    Nov 15, 1930, page 395 stated—

    “THE BRITISH HAVE TAKEN STEPS TO PREVENT THE NATIVES FROM HOARDING GOLD and thus draining empire vaults. INDIAN CURRENCY IS REDEEMABLE IN GOLD BUT ONLY IN LARGE AMOUNTS.
    IF ONE HAS $8,000 IN PAPER MONEY HE CAN GO TO THE BANK AND GET ITS
    EQUIVALENT IN GOLD. BUT NOT MANY INDIANS ARE LIKELY TO ACCUMULATE AS
    MUCH AS $8,000.”

    The Mining Congress Journal, September 1930, page 681, reported that the
    British Empire controlled 71.4 percent of world gold output;
    undoubtedly in their rationale for attacking silver!

    Strakosch was a member of the anti-silver Stable Money Association, along with silver user George Eastman of Eastman-Kodak!

    Hilton Young, the first Baron Kennet, Pilgrims Society, headed the Royal Commission—

    Baron Kennet later chaired the Iraq Currency Board going into World War
    II, had railroad, real estate and timber interests, joined the boards of
    English Electric and Hudson’s Bay Company and was a friend of funny
    money economist John Maynard Keynes, who testified before the Royal
    Commission that silver was no longer needed—

    The report of the Royal Commission on Indian Currency and Finance was
    submitted to Lord Irwin, then British Viceroy of India, who proceeded to
    oversee the melting and dumping of Indian silver rupees on the world
    market by the hundreds of millions of ounces, crashing the silver price
    to an all time historical low of 24.5 cents per ounce in February 1931,
    triggering the Great Depression by wiping out the majority of the buying
    power of India and the Far East and China, to whom American industry
    could no longer export goods, throwing millions of workers out of jobs
    and into the freezing cold in wintertime, forcing Mexican silver mine
    workers to choose banditry as the only alternative to starvation after
    their government couldn’t send in enough corn they could subsist on,
    inciting the murder of American silver mine owners by laid off workers
    (New York Times, June 3, 1930, page 32) AND CAUSING INTENTIONAL SEVERE DAMAGE TO SILVER HOLDERS AND MINERS ALL OVER THE WORLD—

    “ENGLAND HAS CAUSED THIS HAVOC TO THE WORLD’S FINANCES”

    —John Brisben Walker, founder of Cosmopolitan Magazine, New York Times, February 3, 1931, page 24.

    “SILVER MINERS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD ARE BADLY HIT”

    —China Weekly Review, January 17, 1931, page 244.

    “NONE KNEW BETTER THAN ENGLISHMEN THAT SILVER AS THE PEOPLE’S MONEY WAS BEING RUINED”

    —letter to New York Times, September 14, 1932, page 20.

    Lord Irwin (above), Grand Commander of the Star of India, became The
    Earl of Halifax and was president of The Pilgrims of Great Britain,
    1950-1958. The first Earl of Halifax, 1661-1715, became Lord of the
    Treasury in 1692 and according to Wikipedia “the national debt
    originated from his proposal;” he introduced the bill creating the Bank
    of England in 1694 and became Chancellor of the Exchequer. Sir Basil
    Blackett, Pilgrims of Great Britain, authored “Planned Money” (1932) and
    was a director of De Beers Consolidated Diamond Mines and the Bank of
    England. He was a member of the Anglo-French Financial Commission and an
    earlier Royal Commission on Indian Finance and Currency, 1913-1914,
    which paved the way for the sabotage against silver done by the
    successor commission in 1925-1926.

    “Responsibility for the lowered value of silver is blamed by Reed Smoot,
    chairman of the Senate Finance Committee upon “a great power,” which he
    did not name.”—New York Times, October 1, 1930, page 28

    “The fact that the British Government for India had SEVERAL HUNDRED
    MILLION OUNCES THAT IT MIGHT DUMP ON THE MARKETS OF THE WORLD NOT ONLY REDUCED THE PRICE OF SILVER ONE-HALF BUT, BY ITS THREAT TO FURTHER INDEFINITELY REDUCE SUCH PRICE, DESTROYED ITS VALUE FOR CREDIT.
    The result was inevitable. PANIC EXISTS AMONG MORE THAN HALF THE PEOPLE
    OF THE WORLD WHOSE BUYING POWER IS MEASURED SOLELY IN SILVER. It has
    cut in two the purchasing power of China, Mexico, South America, Asia
    and several European countries. It has made credit transactions with
    such silver using countries practically impossible. The reaction has
    been felt throughout the world.”

    New York Times, December 7, 1930, section III, pages 1-2

    “Minister Kung Recommends Adoption of Gold Standard—Kuo Min News
    Agency—Nanking, January 15, 1930—Peace and general security
    throughout the country so as to give impetus to trade and industry in
    the fundamental and most effective measure for relieving the present
    financial crisis in consequence of the declining silver market, Dr. H.H.
    Kung, Minister of Industry, Commerce and Labor, said at a press
    interview today. Minister Kung further stated that the Government had
    been informed that CERTAIN UNSCRUPULOUS MANIPULATORS IN SHANGHAI HAD
    BEEN PURPOSEFULLY UPSETTING THE SILVER MARKET FOR PERSONAL GAINS and the
    report is now under investigation so that the culprits may be properly
    dealt with.”

    (Kung was another version of Charlie Soong, Kung’s father in law (1863-191,
    the first international student at Duke University, endowed by charter
    Pilgrims Society member Benjamin Duke of the American Tobacco Company
    fortune; Duke Energy, a giant utility, is their fortune’s cornerstone
    today; later Soong transferred to Vanderbilt University, site of the
    anti-silver American Economic Association. One of Soong’s sons became
    chairman of the Bank of Canton. The World Money Power, preparatory to
    destroying China’s silver system installed its agents in key positions.)

    There was no problem of British India deluging world markets with silver
    in order to wreck prices! The profiteers referred to in Shanghai—what
    was the problem with them—were they long silver? Kung was a Yale
    University graduate—same effect as Soong coming from Harvard. Kung
    became Minister of Finance, 1933-1944; Premier of the Chinese Republic,
    1938-1939; and governor of the China Central Bank, 1933-1945. And guess
    what! Kung was Soong’s brother in law! H.H. Kung, betrayer of his people
    to anti-silver Western banking interests of The Pilgrims Society, who
    in 1935 as head of the Chinese central bank prohibited the circulation of silver dollars AND BANNED PRIVATE OWNERSHIP OF SILVER and then the “Pinyin” was issued, a fiat paper note meaning “legal tender”)–

    The April 5, 1931 China Weekly Review, page 164 noted—

    “Even in 1930 when silver had reached the then all-time low of 34 cents
    an ounce, BRITISH INDIA UNDER SUCH POLICY THREW ON AN ALREADY SATURATED
    MARKET 29,500,000 OUNCES OF SILVER. THE LAST THREAD OF CONFIDENCE AND
    HOPE IN THE MINDS OF THE PEOPLE OF THE SILVER USING COUNTRIES WAS BROKEN
    AND SPECULATORS IN ALL COUNTRIES COMMENCED TO DUMP SILVER ON THE
    MARKET.”

    Sir Philip Sassoon, Pilgrims Society, whose mother was Caroline
    Rothschild, inherited a massive fortune founded in the British opium
    trade, in which the drug grown in India was sent into China, which
    caused the two Opium Wars; payment for the drug was demanded in silver;
    in one large scale incident of violence, British forces opened fire
    after payment in silver was made, when their assurance was given to not
    attack if the silver was delivered (See “Silver Users And Opium” at
    Silver Investor Archives) also http://inpursuitofhappiness.wordpres…on-opium-wars/ and http://lyndonlarouche.org/larouche-british5.pdf and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sassoon_family
    I would have phrased some accounts differently in places; however the
    actual facts stand as is—the Sassoons dealt in tens of thousands of
    chests of opium! (Weight unknown but considerable). The New York Daily
    News, October 15, 1858 made reference to the “Parliamentary Blue Book”
    which claimed that British export-import trade with just the two cities
    of Canton and Shanghai, for the years 1844 through 1856, amounted to
    more than 437,700,000 pounds sterling, a truly fantastic sum; this, from
    the people who today control the world’s money system! British opium
    “exports” into China peaked in 1880 with 105,580 chests! The Sassoons
    were not alone in that filthy, murderous business, as we will see later!
    Family entities included the Sassoon Banking Company of China &
    London; Eastern Bank; Bank of China; Imperial Bank of Persia; Bank of
    China & Japan; British Burma Petroleum and others. T.V. Soong, son
    of Charlie Soong’s sellout banker family we just read about was the
    Sassoon agent running the Bank of China. We can only guess at the
    immense amounts of silver sucked out of China during the opium trade and
    how they were used to depress silver valuations; instead of blaming
    Comstock Lode silver for the Panic of 1893, it could actually have been
    British opium silver that was the source of asserted oversupply; the
    main cause was coordinated banker whipsawing of the financial system,
    which they and their pet economists then blamed on silver! The Pilgrims
    of Great Britain leaked list, 1980, shows The Duke of Leinster, a
    Sassoon relation. The Wikipedia entry on Sir Philip Sassoon has no
    mention of his opium and silver fortune—

    This organization, The Pilgrims Society, known to so few outsiders, has
    dragged the world towards fiat currencies, destabilized silver and gold
    as money, annihilated the finances of billions, and will stop at nothing
    till its goal is realized; and what is that? To be able to say and have
    carried out things such as “I WANT THAT MAN KILLED” and “BRING THAT
    WOMAN TO ME;” absolute power, that’s all the dignified bastards want!
    Review the following quotations and be convinced as to their war on
    monetary silver—

    “The natural law of supply and demand, reasonably constant over a period
    of a century, WAS THROWN INTO CHAOS BY THE SILVER DELUGE, AND FALLING
    PRICES ROBBED WITHIN A YEAR ONE HALF OF THE HUMAN RACE OF ONE HALF OF
    THEIR WEALTH AND THEIR PURCHASING POWER.”

    —Nevada Senator Key Pittman, China Weekly Review, January 31, 1931, page 318

    “BUT THE WORST IS YET TO COME, BECAUSE THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT FOR INDIA
    STILL HAS SEVERAL HUNDRED MILLION OUNCES OF SILVER MONEY THAT IT INTENDS
    TO CAST UPON THE MARKET OF THE WORLD IN THE FORM OF BULLION. THE MARKET
    CANNOT CONSUME IT. THERE IS NOT A DEMAND FOR IT, AND SUCH A THREAT WILL
    HOLD DOWN THE PRICE OF SILVER AND IF CARRIED OUT MAY ABSOLUTELY DESTROY
    ITS VALUE AS A MEASURE OF WEALTH, AS MONEY, AND AS AN INSTRUMENT FOR
    THE CARRYING ON OF TRADE AND COMMERCE.”—CWR, January 31, 1931, page
    336

    Nevada Senator Key Pittman, in the China Weekly Review, January 31, 1931, page 336, stated—

    “THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT FOR INDIA BY ITS POLICY HAS STRUCK DOWN THE
    WEALTH OF INDIA AND DESTROYED THE PURCHASING POWER OF ITS SUBJECTS. It
    has not only injured its own subjects but it has equally and in the same
    manner destroyed the purchasing power of China, South America, Mexico,
    and every silver using country in the world. This has disastrously
    reduced the export trade of the United States and every other country.
    The producers of silver, although a small group by comparison with all
    of the other groups affected, have suffered even more deeply than the
    producers of other commodities. MINES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD HAVE BEEN
    COMPELLED TO CLOSE, ADDING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF IDLE MEN TO THE
    HORDE OF UNEMPLOYED.”

    “EFFORTS WERE MADE TO INDUCE THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT FOR INDIA TO MODIFY
    SUCH POLICY, BUT SUCH EFFORTS FAILED.”—China Weekly Review, January

    In Foreign Affairs, publication of the Council On Foreign Relations
    (CFR, direct unofficial subsidiary of The Pilgrims Society), flunky
    Herbert B. Elliston, in “The Silver Problem,” April 1931, pages 441-456
    vomited out the following banker blather—

    “The history of the demonetization of silver goes back over a hundred
    years. IT HAS MARCHED HAND IN HAND WITH THE IMPROVEMENT OF LIVING
    STANDARDS.”

    Scum economists like Elliston have no scruples as to lying; we already
    saw that the silver demonetization of 1873 “caused millions of deaths”
    by starvation! He had no gripe over the British suspending conversion of
    paper rupee notes into silver! In America, the unemployed relied on
    soup kitchens to subsist—

    Another convincer of Pilgrims Society attacks on silver causing joblessness—

    After the 1918 unrest over note redemption, British military presence in
    India was increased so as to be able to screw silver over! Elliston,
    while at the CFR, worked for John W. Davis, president of the CFR,
    1921-1933. Davis, Pilgrims Society member, was Solicitor General of the
    United States, 1913-1918, arguing for the government at the Supreme
    Court; and was Ambassador to England, 1918-1921, during which time he
    helped implement the Pittman Act of 1918, providing his “Pilgrim
    Partners” with 200 million ounces of silver so they could maintain
    control over British India. Davis was chief counsel to J.P. Morgan &
    Company, trustee Rockefeller Foundation and director of American
    Telephone & Telegraph. His firm was Davis, Polk & Wardwell,
    which today “works with many of the leading companies of the world” http://www.davispolk.com/firm/ The boss of anti-silver activist Herb Elliston, John W. Davis, was the 1924 Democrat candidate for President—

    As of the 1952 Who’s Who, page 736, Elliston was a member of the CFR and
    the Cosmos Club in D.C. plus the anti-silver Royal Economic Society and
    the anti-silver American Economic Association and was editor of the
    Washington Post with a Pulitzer Prize in 1949.

    “The British Government of India commenced selling silver in 1927. BY
    THE END OF MARCH 1931 APPROXIMATELY 101,000,000 OUNCES HAD BEEN SOLD.”
    Page 811 Asia Magazine December 1931

    The Pan American Union had a more accurate tally—

    “Silver in the West and the East,” Bulletin of the Pan American Union at Washington, D.C., December 1932, page 835 reported—

    “Sales commenced in 1927 and by March 31, 1932, 127,584,564 ounces of
    silver had been sold. CLEARLY, THIS INJURED THE PRICE OF SILVER.”

    The feature noted that from 1900 inclusive through 1929, 863.4MOZ was
    used for coinage in British India; recall that at least 200MOZ of that
    came via the Pittman Act of 1918. The same Bulletin, December 1932, page
    847 commented—

    “SILVER HAS COME UPON EVIL DAYS, AND ITS FUTURE IS SURROUNDED BY UNCERTAINTY.”

    Silver leasing or silver dumping has certainly been around for many,
    many years. According to a former ambassador to Germany, the British
    dumped 640,000,000 silver ounces out of India, causing an 80% drop in
    purchasing power of silver currency countries (NYT, October 9, 1931,
    page 16). The exact figure will never be known and the 640MOZ figure
    could be overblown, but it was more than ample to achieve British plans
    to drive the world closer to full fiat. Before the dumping out of India
    started, silver was 65 cents an ounce. The fall in silver valuations
    caused the Great Depression. The crash of the U.S. stock market in
    October 1929 was just another blow on the way down, caused by a sudden
    tightening of credit on the part of the British linked central bank.
    With over half the world’s people on a silver basis, their use of silver
    as money was struck at hard by the appalling British conspiracy. People
    in many nations were thrown out of work because silver using people’s
    ability to pay had been sabotaged. Of course this also wrecked their
    basis for use of silver as credit. The NYT, May 30, 1931, page 2—

    “In spite of a request by the United States Senate that the President
    take steps to call an international conference to consider the silver
    problem, the administration has, for reasons that are undoubtedly well
    considered, taken no action.”

    For reasons that are undoubtedly Pilgrims Society related, Hoover took no action!

    Sir Austen Chamberlain, Pilgrims Society of Great Britain, was Foreign
    Secretary, 1924-1929 and backed the Royal Commission’s
    recommendations—this was the same Austen Chamberlain who as Chancellor
    of the Exchequer in 1920 shoveled 70 million ounces of silver onto
    world markets for price suppression purposes (The Times, London, January
    15, 1931, page 1. The silver came from Britain’s coinage debasement from .925 to .500 silver content as of 1920—

    “WE HAVE FOLLOWED A POLICY THAT HAD FOR ITS PURPOSE THE DESTRUCTION OF SILVER VALUES.”

    —New York Times, April 23, 1933, section 2, page 7.

    The Earl of Birkenhead was Secretary of State for India, and backed Lord
    Irwin. Birkenhead, Pilgrims Society, was described as “SOMEONE TO BE
    AVOIDED AS AN ENEMY” on page 166 of the rare (Hutchinson & Company,
    London) volume “Pilgrims And Pioneers” (1946) by Sir Harry Brittain, a
    founder of The Pilgrims Society. The Earl of Birkenhead, seen below in
    his earlier post as Lord Chancellor in medieval accoutrements, played
    his role in causing the boundless misery of The Great Depression by
    smashing the silver money systems of India and China—

    Bomanji, Indian delegate to the International Chamber of Commerce and
    representative in London of the Indian Chamber of Commerce—

    “ENGLAND MOST CERTAINLY HAS DEFRAUDED INDIA.”

    “THE ENTIRE BUSINESS MACHINERY OF CHINA IS IN CHAOS.”—China Weekly Review, January 11, 1930, page 200

    “SILVER HAS REACHED THE LOWEST POINT IN HISTORY WITH THE RESULT THAT
    THOUSANDS OF CHINESE AND FOREIGN CONCERNS WERE RUINED.”—China Weekly
    Review, January 25, 1930, page 271

    “THE CONTINUING DOWNWARD TREND OF SILVER PRICES CONSTITUTES A GRAVE
    MENACE TO WORLD TRADE. Silver in world markets is at the lowest price in
    history. No industry is suffering more from declining price levels than
    is the nonferrous metal mining industry. We have advocated the calling
    of an international conference on silver by those countries which
    produce four fifths of the world’s silver—Peru, Bolivia, Mexico,
    Canada and the United States.”—Mining Congress Journal, April 1930,
    page 284

    “THE SILVER MARKET IS AN ABSOLUTE CLOSED MONOPOLY AS IT IS NOW
    CONDUCTED, CONTROLLED BY LONDON. BUT IT IS FREQUENTLY SAID BY SILVER
    PRODUCERS THAT THIS IS AN ARBITRARY EXERCISE OF THE MONOPOLISTIC CONTROL
    OF NEW YORK.”—Colorado Congressman William R. Eaton speaking in the
    House of Representatives, May 1, 1930 (New York Times, May 11, 1930,
    section III, page 5).

    Both beliefs applied—London and New York, each having branches of a
    nearly unknown two part organization of mega-thieves who “seize the
    wealth necessary,” have suppressed silver for generations!

    “THE FACT IS THAT A FOOLISH DUMPING POLICY IN INDIA IS DISRUPTING THE
    MONETARY SYSTEM OF HALF THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD AND ADDING TO THE
    STAGNATION OF TRADE EVERYWHERE. THAT IS THE DIRECT CAUSE OF THE WORLD
    DEPRESSION. THIS DUMPING AND THREAT OF UNLIMITED DUMPING DOES NOT ONLY
    CUT IN TWO THE BUYING POWER OF HALF THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD, BUT IT HAS
    DESTROYED THE CREDIT OF EVERY SILVER USING PEOPLE.”—Nevada Senator Key
    Pittman, New York Times, May 18, 1931, page 12

    The NYT, July 10, 1928, page 32, “French Lose On Silver,” subtitled
    “Government Will Pay but 40 Cents on Dollar for Demonetized Coins”
    noted—

    “Paris—The silver coins hoarded for years by French peasants in their
    proverbial woolen socks will not be redeemed at par, but at two-fifths
    of their pre-war value. The Government has fixed the ratio, effective
    next Monday, for the silver pieces which have been demonetized under the
    stabilization bill, the value being set on the basis of the bullion
    value.”

    (The lowered bullion value was attributable 100% to the British dumping
    silver out of India that started over a year before that—and to no
    other cause! You can be sure that the authors of the stabilization bill
    knew what was taking place; maybe many of them even approved of it!)

    “Consequently, FRENCHMEN WHO DID NOT TRUST BANKS, THINKING THAT ANY HARD
    MONEY WAS ALWAYS WORTH PAR, WILL GET ONLY FORTY CENTS ON THE DOLLAR FOR
    THEIR SILVER COINS.”

    (Sick tricks such as this won’t work today—there isn’t any silver of
    any magnitude left to dump. Even if all the metal in Barclay’s ETF
    “seeped” out into the market, with more investors realizing the best
    silver is that which they privately hold, it couldn’t dent the price by
    too much for very long. It could frighten out the uninformed, however!)

    The NYT, September 16, 1928, page 17, “France Gets Hoarded Gold,”
    subtitled, “97 Tons of it and 500 Tons of Silver Have Been Turned in by
    Peasants” revealed—

    “Paris—(AP)—Five hundred tons of silver coins have been turned into the
    French Treasury since stabilization of the franc was decreed, and
    Premier Poincare announced that the silver 1, 2 and 5 franc pieces were
    NO LONGER LEGAL TENDER. Ninety-seven tons of gold coin likewise have
    found their way into the coffers of the Treasury. Bank officials say
    that the peasant hoarders prefer gold to silver and must still have
    billions of gold francs buried in their gardens and cellars.”

    The December 24, 1929 NYT, page 23 stated—

    “Although it is expected that it will be many years before silver is
    abandoned as a monetary unit, reports have been current in banking
    circles that France may insist on the gold standard for Indo-China.”

    What we find in French Indochina (what we now know as Vietnam, Cambodia
    and Laos, which colonial empire ended in 1954) were coins of zinc;
    copper; nickel; and aluminum http://art-hanoi.com/collection/iccoins/1943.html

    However, as regards the opium trade in those areas, silver was still demanded as payment and was called the opium tael http://art-hanoi.com/collection/iccoins/tael.html

    The December 22, 1930 NYT, page 30, shows the corrupting British influence in French financial circles—

    “It is also believed that any concerted plan in the direction of
    supporting silver would mean reversion to the bimetallic theory, WHICH
    NO LONGER HAS ANY SUPPORT IN FRANCE, AND WHICH IS CONSIDERED, IN VIEW OF
    FINANCIAL CONDITIONS OF THE PERIOD, TO BE AN ABSURDITY.”

    (Silver had huge support in France, but not among the corrupted,
    infiltrated, bought-off leadership. Adverse financial conditions of the
    period were caused by demonetization of silver. Then the crooks blamed
    the victim for the crime!) Yes, any bankers anywhere would be tempted to
    act against hard money, even had Britain never existed. It would take
    another essay to discuss the Latin Monetary Union, which lasted from
    1865 to 1927 (when Great Britain’s silver attack intensified). These
    nations used silver and gold coins for currency and included Belgium;
    Italy; Switzerland; Austria; Greece; Bulgaria; Romania; Serbia;
    Montenegro; Venezuela; San Marino; Vatican State; and France.)

    “Silver Reaches A New Low Level,” China Weekly Review, March 8, 1930, page 49—

    “Exchange, by which is meant the price of silver in terms of gold, and
    vice versa which has always been one of the main points of business in
    China has during recent months become a matter of much more than
    ordinary importance, owing to the continued decline of the price of
    silver. Now on top of a still further decline there have come sudden
    jerks upwards and downwards, so that businessmen, importers, exporters,
    brokers and bankers, are kept keyed up to high tension, not knowing from
    moment to moment what is likely to happen next.”

    “The price of bar silver dropped to 19.125 pence per ounce in London,
    March 1. THIS WAS THE LOWEST PRICE EVER REACHED SINCE RECORDS HAVE BEEN
    KEPT. In Shanghai where all imports and exports have to go through an
    exchange transaction, and where in addition there is huge speculation in
    gold bars, the rates for a short time went so low that a gold dollar
    was worth a little more than three Mexican dollars. THE SUDDEN DROP WAS
    ATTRIBUTED TO THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT INDIA DECIDED TO LEVY A TAX ON
    SILVER.“

    Lord Arthur Salter, Pilgrims Society of Great Britain, member of
    Parliament who became Baron Salter of Kidlington in 1953, opposed silver
    as money and argued against an international silver conference (“The
    Silver Problem,” Political Science Quarterly, September 1931)—

    “IT IS MONSTROUS THE WAY YOU HAVE DEPRESSED THE PRICE OF SILVER.”

    —Journal of Political Science, September 1931, page 329.

    Lord James Stanhope, the 13th Earl of Chesterfield, son in law of the
    6th Marquess of Sligo, who became leader of the House of Lords, was
    another Pilgrims Society member atop the British establishment who had
    icy feelings against monetary silver. He owned a 145 room estate. The
    Times, London, December 8, 1932, page 7, had this to say—

    “LORD STANHOPE SAID THE GOVERNMENT DID NOT THINK BIMETALLISM WAS OF
    SUFFICIENT IMPORTANCE TO BE PLACED IN THE FOREFRONT OF MATTERS TO BE
    CONSIDERED AT THE WORLD ECONOMIC CONFERENCE.”

    The Commercial & Financial Chronicle, December 10, 1932, page 3954,
    “British House of Lords Bars Bi-Metalism Move, Blocks Attempt to Put
    Issue Up to World Economic Conference” reported Lord Stanhope making a
    declaration that “if we could get 1,000,000,000 ounces of silver out of
    China and India” letting slip British intentions to continue silver
    dumping so prices could be managed at low levels, in their effort to
    discredit silver as money!

    Silver suppressor Lord Stanhope had his way, as the 1933 World Economic
    Conference, summer 1933, held in London at the Geological Museum, was a
    Pilgrims Society farce benefitting The Money Power at dear cost of grief
    and poverty to the world (a subject for a whole other extensive
    research, for which I have tons of info and little time) —

    Below, Pilgrims Society member Andrew Mellon, revealed in Congressional
    proceedings to be a heavy holder of shares in more than 300 corporations
    and whose property (source—Texas Congressman Wright Patman) was alleged
    to be “EQUAL TO THE ENTIRE VALUE OF ALL THE PROPERTY IN THE STATE OF
    TEXAS” (mentioned in book, cover of which is seen later on), as Treasury
    Secretary 1921-1932 acted as a silver suppressor! Mellon was the only
    man to hold off the Rockefellers in oil (Gulf Oil) and J.P. Morgan in
    steel (with Union Sharon Steel). The New York Times, March 9, 1926, page
    36, reported that Secretary Mellon rebuffed pleas from American miners
    that the Treasury comply with the balance of silver purchases at $1 per
    ounce provided for in the Pittman Act of 1918, cheating miners out of
    $14 million in revenues ( a major sum in those days)—

    [img width=600 height=876]http://silverstealers.net/Image47.jpg[/img]

    While Ambassador to Britain 1932-1933, Mellon refused to ask England to mollify its attacks on the silver price! He was chairman of the War Finance Corporation and is known to have reaped colossal profits from World War I. From The Times, London—

    The Mining Congress Journal, November 1929, page 912 reported the
    American Silver Producers Association lost its lawsuit to force the
    government to complete its agreed silver purchases under the 1918
    Pittman Act. 15 million ounces at $1 per ounce was in arrears; the
    Treasury refused to honor the remaining provisions of the Act when the
    world price was falling to well under half that level, thanks to British
    actions in India; and a corrupt Supreme Court led by Pilgrims Society
    member William H. Taft upheld the Treasury Department against the
    miners. The Wikipedia entry on decisions handed down by the Taft Supreme
    Court censored that fact out of its enumeration. William H. Taft,
    1857-1930, was tapped for Skull & Bones Society at Yale, as was his
    younger brother, Henry W. Taft; both became Pilgrims Society members,
    the senior and by far the more powerful society. See the admission by
    Henry Taft on page 2521 of the 1940 Who’s Who. The elder Taft was
    Governor of the Philippines, 1901-1903, which we took after the
    Spanish-American War; he was Secretary of War, 1904-1908; previously he
    was Solicitor General of the United States, who represents the
    Government at the Supreme Court, 1890-1892; as a Federal judge in 1893
    he ruled in favor of Mellon’s aluminum trust; he became President of the
    United States, 1909-1913, supporting the Federal Reserve Act into and
    fighting for the 16th Amendment inflicting the Income Tax on Americans.
    In 1920 William Taft became the first president of the English Speaking
    Union of the United States, a Crown organization always run by Pilgrims
    Society members whose function is to make English the universal language
    in a world government. In 1910 Taft appointed Charles Evans Hughes to
    the Supreme Court, who succeeded him as Chief Justice in 1930 and also
    became a silver suppressing Pilgrims Society member—

    The Times, London, January 1, 1929, page 18 reported—

    “In the summer the Supreme Court at Washington rejected the application
    of the American Silver Producers Association to compel the United
    States Treasury to purchase 14,500,000 ounces still remaining under the
    Pittman Act. IT IS VERY IMPROBABLE THIS PURCHASE WILL EVER TAKE PLACE.”

    The Mining Congress Journal, March 1929, page 239, reported that a
    preliminary judge, Wendell Stafford, gave his opinion that the silver
    producers “did not have sufficient interest to bring the suit.” I wish I
    could have been there to tell the judge he didn’t have sufficient
    interest to summon firefighters if his house were ablaze. The deck was
    stacked; Stafford was a member of the Cosmos Club in D.C., a network
    organization.

    “NEWS THAT BRITISH ARE UNWILLING TO END SILVER DUMPING BY INDIA ADDS TO DEPRESSION.”

    —New York Times, February 14, 1931, page 24.

    The 1897-1942 Who Was Who in America, page 828, Mellon was “chairman
    ex-officio Federal Reserve Board, Farm Loan Board, U.S. Section of Pan
    American High Commission, also director U.S. Railroad Administration and
    member board Reconstruction Finance Corporation.” The RFC’s gold
    dealings would make for an extensive investigation!

    United States Secretary of State, 1925-1929 Frank B. Kellogg, Pilgrims
    Society, had no issue with British actions in silver; he called silver
    “unsound money” (New York Times, December 12, 1933, page 2) and that it
    represented “inflation” (New York Times, December 4, 1933, page2) —

    Kellogg, a former Senator and Ambassador to England and president of the
    American Bar Association 1912-1913, became a justice of the globalist
    World Court, 1930-1935.

    In the Mining Congress Journal, September 1930, Francis Brownell,
    chairman of American Smelting and Refining, had an article, “The Silver
    Situation.” Let’s read some of his comments—

    “The fall in the price of silver of nearly 15 cents per ounce during the
    spring of 1930 caused rapidly increasing demoralization, particularly
    in China and Mexico. Mexico and other silver countries experienced a
    disastrous effect from the fall in the price of silver. The purchasing
    power of all silver countries became seriously impaired and their
    ability to acquire commodities of the United States and European
    countries substantially lessened.” (page 677)

    What was behind the collapse in the silver price at that time? Reading Brownell further we find—

    “In 1926, a Royal Commission on India’s monetary system recommended that
    India go to a gold exchange standard and gradually sell on the open
    market the excess stocks of silver, consisting of several hundred
    million ounces then owned by the Indian government. At the time of
    publication of that report in the summer of 1926, silver was selling at
    about 65 cents per ounce. A RAPID FALL IN THE PRICE FOLLOWED, and in
    December of the same year the price averaged less than 53 and a half
    cents. For a time after the War, when confidence in the monies of
    European nations had been so greatly destroyed, it seemed possible that a
    greater use of silver for monetary purposes would be necessary. BUT
    WHEN THE ROYAL COMMISSION’S REPORT BECAME KNOWN, THIS TENDENCY STOPPED.
    The European nations either greatly reduced or entirely abandoned the
    use of silver for subsidiary coinage.”

    The entire upper echelons of the British establishment were arrayed against silver as money; and remains so!

    “Neville Chamberlain, Chancellor of the Exchequer, said HE DID NOT THINK ANY USEFUL PURPOSE WOULD BE SERVED BY CALLING AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SILVER.” —Pilgrims Society member Chamberlain, World Money Power spokesman, quoted in New York Times, November 18, 1931, page 11

    The same dismal resistance to an international silver conference—to
    remedy the price collapse in silver intentionally caused by the British
    establishment (as always, Pilgrims Society members), was encountered
    from Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald (below, the truculent looking

    According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abe_Bailey
    Sir Abe Bailey, 1864-1940, was an associate of Cecil Rhodes and “became
    one of the world’s wealthiest men” due to seizing diamond bearing lands
    in Rhodesia. The Times, London, August 24, 1931, page 12 had Bailey
    making this bizarre mercenary statement—

    “I am surprised to see responsible statesmen advocating the
    remonetization of silver, which would add very little to currency AND IS
    A FORM OF CONFISCATION AND REPUDIATION.”

    PILGRIMS SOCIETY member, anti-silver financier, diamond tycoon Sir Abe Bailey—

    “GREAT BRITAIN IS THE GREATEST OFFENDER IN THE SINISTER WORK OF DEBASING SILVER.”

    —Utah Silver Senator (from 1917-1941) William H. King, New York Times, June 14, 1931, page 22.

    The Commercial & Financial Chronicle of December 10, 1932 page 3954
    quoted Montana silver Senator Burton K. Wheeler stating— “GREAT
    BRITAIN WOULD NOT AGREE TO MAKING SILVER A UNIVERSAL CURRENCY BASE.”

    Striking out from London like an octopus that strangles!

    Hidden financial alliances, danger that entangles!

    Working secretly to take our silver away!

    WHAT ARE THESE BANKER LOWLIFES PLANNING TODAY?

    The 11th Marquess of Lothian, Philip Henry Kerr, who was British
    Ambassador to Washington in 1939-1940, was another Pilgrims Society
    member. As Undersecretary of State for India in 1931-1932 his input went
    into dumping silver out of British India onto world markets, killing
    silver values and attacking it as money in order to lead the world down
    hell’s road towards full fiat—

    “HUGE DECREASES IN THE WORLD’S TRADE ARE DUE TO THE DROP IN THE PRICE OF SILVER.”

    —El Economista, Mexico City, quoted in the New York Times, March 10, 1931, page 12.

    Secretary of State, Pilgrims Society member Henry L. Stimson (below)
    quoted in the New York Times, June 4, 1932, page 5, declared—

    “I HAVE NOT FELT THAT THE CALLING OF A CONFERENCE ON SILVER BY THE UNITED STATES WOULD SERVE ANY USEFUL PURPOSE.”

    It’s as if what Neville Chamberlain and Henry Stimson said to squelch a
    world silver conference was scripted for them by a Rothschild or a
    Rockefeller or a Windsor or Astor or some such! Yes, within The Pilgrims
    Society there exists a hard inner core of globalists, the others being
    their lieutenants, functionaries and tag-alongs! Stimson—

    “THE PURCHASING POWER OF OVER 800,000,000 PEOPLE WAS SUDDENLY AND DRASTICALLY LOWERED BY GOVERNMENTAL ACTION IN REGARD TO SILVER.”

    —New York Times, May 11, 1931, page 2. It was Britain’s attack against
    silver money that caused the Great Depression! Yet we still see alleged
    experts in precious metals commentary carelessly stating that the stock
    market crash of October 1929 was the cause, when in fact it was a mere
    secondary causative agent! Please do your historical homework before
    parroting statements propagated by fiat currency activists! If stock
    price downturns cause depressions, why worry about the absence of gold
    and silver from the monetary structure?

    “The silver countries or three fourths of the 2 billion of the people
    that live on earth, have been deprived of their purchasing
    power.”—R.J. Cromie, publisher, Vancouver Sun, quoted in China Weekly
    Review, October 18, 1930, page 236.

    “The buying power of silver countries lies dormant and AS A RESULT WORLD BUSINESS IS PARALYZED.” (ibid)

    Anyone reviewing these documented details who still maintains that the
    October 1929 stock market crash caused the Great Depression must be
    suspect of being in the fiat money camp, or someone too proud to admit
    to have been wrong.

    “The decline in silver prices has caused losses estimated as high as
    $3,000,000,000 to Indian silver holders. Price declines in silver long
    preceded the general world depression.”—Current History, May 1932,
    pages 176-177

    “The evil influence of silver depreciation has been felt by all the
    countries of the world.”—Yue Kwei-Zun, director, Tung Yih Bank,
    Shanghai, China Weekly Review, June 11, 1932, page 49.

    “THE WORLD MONEY SYSTEM, WHICH HAD BEEN FUNCTIONING FROM TIME
    IMMEMORIAL ON THE TWO CYLINDERS OF GOLD AND SILVER, IS NOW BEING ASKED
    TO FUNCTION ON ONE CYLINDER ONLY.”—New York Congressman Andrew Somers, NYT, front page, May 15, 1932

    “THE RESULTS OF THE SITUATION BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE DESTRUCTION OF SILVER
    ARE VERY ACUTE AND ARE RAPIDLY GROWING WORSE.”—House Subcommittee on
    Coinage, NYT, May 15, 1932, page 26

    The New York Times, June 27, 1932, page 25, “Cheap Silver Adds to Depression” —

    “Colonel Harden and Mr. Thomas agreed that the effects on American growers were tragic. “In one day recently,” said Mr. Thomas, “30,000 COTTON FARMS IN MISSISSIPPI WERE SOLD UNDER THE HAMMER.”

    Millions of previously self supporting Americans were forced out into
    the streets, into tent cities and camping out in woodlands, and into
    rickety shacks unreliable for shielding from storms—

    indicates that large consolidated interests acquired failing textile
    operations during the Depression. Milliken & Company was connected
    to National City Bank, a top tier Pilgrims Society bank. Two Millikens
    were listed as charter Pilgrims Society members in 1903. The British
    attack on silver that started in India in 1926 was a repeat of the Crime
    of ’73, the Coinage Act of 1873 that virtually demonetized silver and
    wrecked the finances of millions, allowing concentration of wealth in
    the hands of gold holders! It of course stemmed from the Bank of England
    and its subversive lobbying of Congress during 1872!

    “SILVER ENJOYS A PRESTIGE OUT OF PROPORTION TO ITS IMPORTANCE.”—“Unimportance
    Of Silver,” World’s Work, N.Y., August 1931, page 21, by prostitute
    economist Joseph S. Lawrence, member of anti-silver American Economic
    Association, financial writer for New York Herald Tribune; owned by
    Ogden R. Reid (1882-1947) a director of Harriman National Bank, second generation Pilgrims Society member whose father was Ambassador to England—

    His sons Whitelaw Reid and Ogden R. Reid became Pilgrims Society
    members; both members of Book and Snake Society of Yale; Whitelaw ran
    the publishing empire and was a member of the U.S. National Commission
    for the United Nations Educational, Scientific & Cultural
    Organization (UNESCO); Ogden was Ambassador to Israel (1959-1961),
    director of Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance; trustee of the (British
    front) Atlantic Council of the U.S.; Congressman from New York,
    1963-1975, during which critical period he voted for everything the
    Silver Users Association wanted. On July 14, 1965, Ogden Reid,
    Republican from New York, voted for the Coinage Act of 1965, terminating
    90% silver coinage.

    The New York Times, October 11, 1931, page 3, reported that the United
    States delegate to the Pan American Union opposed that organization’s
    proposal for a world conference on the monetary rehabilitation of
    silver. The Pan American Union, now known as the Organization of
    American States, represented silver producing nations in the Southern
    part of the Western hemisphere. All American delegates to international
    conferences are subject to the orders of the Secretary of State. Henry
    Stimson of The Pilgrims Society actively opposed an international
    conference for restoration of silver money! The reason; the Society
    included those in control of central banks, who worked to send silver
    into the toilet, and to lower gold reserve requirements eventually to
    zero!

    Stimson’s mentor was Pilgrims Society member Elihu Root, called “the
    most brilliant administrator in American history” who assisted Pilgrims
    Society member, Crown loyalist Andrew Carnegie set up the astonishingly
    virulent Carnegie Foundations, which, like the Rhodes Trust, the
    Rockefeller, Mellon, Ford and other foundations, are administered by
    Pilgrims Society members.

    Viscount Simon, Pilgrims Society of Great Britain, was Foreign
    Secretary, 1931-1935 and played his role in dumping Indian silver onto
    world markets, causing the Great Depression; afterwards he became
    Chancellor of the Exchequer—

    “THE DEMONETIZATION OF SILVER BY ENGLAND, DUMPING INDIA’S SILVER ON THE MARKET BROUGHT ON THE WORLD DEPRESSION.”

    —New York Times, April 25, 1933, page 16.

    The December 28, 1932 New York Times, page 25, featured “South Africa
    Notes Off Gold Standard,” with subtitles, “Treasury Gives Reserve Banks
    Right to Refuse to Redeem in Sovereigns” and “Gold Export Is Curbed” and
    “Restrictions Will Seek to Prevent Further Hoarding and Flight of
    Country’s Capital”—

    “Pretoria, South Africa—SOUTH AFRICA, THE GREATEST GOLD PRODUCING
    COUNTRY IN THE WORLD HAS VIRTUALLY ABANDONED THE GOLD STANDARD. This was
    the purport of an official statement issued by the Treasury tonight
    relieving the Reserve Bank from responsibility for redeeming notes in
    gold. Powers for this action were taken under emergency financial
    regulations passed by Parliament last year.”

    The move against gold convertibility was made by The 6th Earl of
    Clarendon (George Herbert Hyde Villiers), Pilgrims Society of Great
    Britain, member of the Privy Council to the Crown and the House of Lords
    who was British Governor General of South Africa, 1931-1937—

    His grandfather was a three term Foreign Secretary; his father was a
    member of Parliament and the Privy Council to the Crown; his grandfather
    was the 3rd Earl of Normanton, member of Parliament. The British led
    attack against silver was followed immediately by an attack on gold,
    with their Pilgrim Partners Franklin Roosevelt and Henry Morgenthau Jr.
    screwing Americans out of gold just as soon as FDR invaded the White
    House with his diabolical, demonized presence. The Pilgrims Society of
    London and New York, the fiat World Money Power, opposes silver and gold
    as money and ownership thereof by the public, even if treated only as
    commodities! When the present synthetic system they imposed fails,
    they’ll offer as a “remedy” the taking of precious metals from We The
    People a second time! Making others aware of their existence and
    operations is the best way to frustrate their intentions!

    Charles Dawes, Pilgrims Society, authored the Dawes Plan under which
    German currency was reorganized after the 1923 Weimar hyperinflation
    debacle into the “Rentenmark,” the new paper currency was allegedly
    “backed” by all the land in Germany. Dawes, a natural gas magnate,
    became Ambassador of England, 1929-1932 and was tapped to head the $2
    billion Reconstruction Finance Corporation in 1932. The RFC had huge
    manipulative gold activities (evidence is in numerous New York Times
    news stories, I hope to review when time allows; for example, November
    7, 1933, page 37 “RFC Gold Buying a Substantial Sum but Keeps Total a
    Secret”) —

  10. Great history lesson all. I’ll bet you’ll not find this being taught in many schools today.


  11. Funny, they used to tell you to grow your own food. Now it’s considered hoarding (NDAA) and they can take it from you just because. “The FDA says “it’s unsafe and we need to inspect and regulate your food”. You must buy from the Monsato regime for your own safety. Get real. In several states, you can’t sell or give your food to your next door neighbor.

  12. You right on that 2oz!

    Our government is making everything against the law. This way if you dont agree with or talk against them, they hassel you. This way they can pick and chose who they want or need to stifle.
  13. Unfortunately, 427, the passed laws and signed executive orders that take our freedoms and the majority of the populace don’t see it. By the time most realize what is going on, it’ll be too late and many people will be starving. Then chaos and the thievery of food will ensue. It won’t be long before making a trip to the grocery store may cost you your life.

  14. The best thread ever- thanks to everyone for taking the time to post all these very informative comments. I am late to the party and you all have more than covered many aspects of the war against our own real money.

    It is apparent the banks don’t want anyone to be outside of their web of debt and social control. 

    “The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the  people versus the banks.” ~ Lord Acton

    have been assassination attempts on every President who
    attempted to eliminate these private National Banks.  Excellent Link
    A
    s a show of audacity and
    control, the Federal Reserve Bank prints their Notes with the
    faces of Presidents who adamantly opposed having a private
    National Bank, and Presidents the bank either tried to or did
    kill:

    Thomas Jefferson


    “I
    sincerely believe the banking institutions having the issuing
    power of money are more dangerous to liberty than standing
    armies” “the principle of spending money to be paid by
    prosperity under the name of funding is but swindling futurity
    on a large scale.

    Abraham Lincoln

    “The money powers prey upon the nation in times
    of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. The
    banking powers are more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent
    than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. They denounce as
    public enemies all who question their methods or throw light
    upon their crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army
    in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one
    at my rear is my greatest foe.

    Andrew
    Jackson
     

     ”The bank, is trying
    to kill me, but I will kill it!” “You are a den of vipers and
    thieves.  I intend to rout you out, and by the eternal God I
    will rout you out.”

    General Ulysses S. Grant

    General Ulysses S. Grant
    (1822-1885), who like Jackson before him was put into power to defeat
    those forces attempting to create a Central Bank said needed due to the
    United States massive debts incurred from their Civil War (1861-1865) who said:

    “The
    government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and
    credit needed to satisfy the spending power of the government and the
    buying power of consumers. The privilege of creating and issuing money
    is not only the supreme prerogative of government, but it is the
    government’s greatest creative opportunity. The financing of all public
    enterprise, and the conduct of the treasury will become matters of
    practical administration. Money will cease to be master and will then
    become servant of humanity.”

    Ben Franklin

    Ben Franklin, as reported by
    Gertrude Coogan in “Money Creators”:

    …the inability of the colonists to get the power to issue their
    own money permanently out of the hands of George III and the
    international bankers was the PRIME reason for the
    Revolutionary War. 

    Ben Franklin answering a question about the booming
    economy of the young colonies: “That is simple. In the
    colonies we issue our own money. It is called Colonial Scrip.
    We issue it in proper proportions to the demands of trade and
    industry.”READ MORE

    William McKinley


    He began his attack against the Central Bankers with his ally and Secretary of State John Sherman (1823-1900) whose connection his older brother and Civil War here General William Tecumseh Sherman (1820-1891).  The legal tool used by President McKinley and Sherman against the European bankers was the law known as the “Sherman Antitrust Act” which was first brought to bear against the Rothschild supported and funded JP Morgan financial empire known as the Northern Trust who by the late 1800′s owned nearly all of America’s railroads.

    Shortly after President McKinley began his attack against the Central Bankers he was assassinated (1901)

    Democrat Grover Cleveland (1885-1889, 1893-1897)

    Grover Cleveland may have been the
    greatest gold standard advocate ever to serve as president. In his first
    term, Cleveland singlehandedly preserved the gold standard at a time
    when the Democrats split bitterly over the money issue and populism.
    However, his opposition to tariffs cost him the 1888 election.

    When Cleveland left office after his first term, the Treasury had a
    large gold reserve, but it was depleted by Republican Benjamin Harrison
    (1889-1893). In 1890, Harrison signed the Sherman Silver Purchase Act,
    requiring the Treasury to buy 4.5 million ounces of silver monthly.

    To
    buy the silver, Treasury was to issue a new type of paper money known as
    Treasury notes. The act was a victory for the Populists, who held that
    deflation, which hurt farmers, could be reversed by free silver
    policies. Deflation continued, the gold reserve dropped, private banking
    tightened, and the Panic of 1893 ensued.

    Re-elected and back in the White House, Cleveland attacked the Silver
    Purchase Act as a “dangerous and reckless experiment. . . .” He called
    for its repeal to restore confidence in the dollar. Cleveland knew
    Gresham’s Law and defended gold against inflationists in his own
    Democratic Party. Congress tried to compromise, but Cleveland would not
    yield and the act was repealed. Cleveland was the last Democratic
    president to support gold.

    1971 Nixon Took US off the Gold Standard

    With the election the country’s fortunes neared victory when on June 4, 1963 President Kennedy issued Executive Order 1110
    which for the first time since 1913 returned to the United States
    government the power to issue currency, without going through the
    Federal Reserve (Central Bank).
    This order gave the Treasury Department the authority to issue silver certificates against any silver in the treasury.READ MORE HERE

    Five months later, on November 22, 1963, President Kennedy was brutally assassinated. One of the first things President Lyndon B. Johnson did after assuming power was
    to have the “Kennedy silver certificates” destroyed. In 1964 Johnson, serving as
    the voice of the Federal Reserve bankers, said, “Silver has become too valuable to be
    used as money.” This amounted to a brazen boast that the bankers would eliminate any
    money with intrinsic value. On November 26, 1963, the day of John F.
    Kennedy’s funeral, the first 50 million “no-promise” Federal Reserve Notes were
    released into circulation–the symbolic celebration of the Federal Reserve bankers? READ MORE
