100 years ago the Titanic sunk on its maiden voyage to kill opposition to the Federal Reserve. While watching the movie and reading about the Federal Reserve at the time I came across this idea independently. After doing some digging I came across the following information:
1) The boat was owned by JP Morgan. He was supposed to be on the boat but slipped out in the last minute. 2) John Jacob Astor, Benjamin Guggenhuem and Isa Strauss were on that ship. They were among the richest individuals in the world and they used their power and influence to prevent the formation of a central bank. 3) hardly any life boats on the ship 4) no distress flares 5) the captain had the ship moving at top speeds dispite several warnings of iceberg activity. 6) captain knew those waters for like 30 years. 7) radio was shut off. And much more information.
Interestingly enough the idea of sinking the Titanic wasnt even an original idea back in 1912 because A book was written about it in 1898 before it was constructed. The name of the book is called ” The Sinking of the Titan / Futility” and this book also describes the sinking of a unsinkable ship.
Once these individuals were killed off the Federal Reserve Act was passed the next year in 1913. And then signed into law by Woodrow Wilson(a democrat). 1912 was an election year and Woodrow Wilson was elected president. John Jacob Astor was a contributor to the Republican party and would have used his influence to have a republican win instead. He would have also tried to block legislation.
The Lusitania was driving across the Atlantic in 1916 despite the warnings from the Germany diplomatic corps that it may be fired upon by submarines. It was and hundreds of lives were lost. It was not the only event to draw us into WWI but it was the one best remembered. Pearl Harbor? That’s too easy. FDR was opposed to entry into WWII, seemingly to prefer that Great Britain be hobbled by the war until he was comfortable that Hitler could be defeated by our forces after we finished up in the South Pacific. GB fell from the great power position it once held. The pound was removed as the world’s reserve currency with the loans Truman and the Fed provided after the war was over. GB has never been the same.
The line I like most and may be the most revealing to conspiracy theorists is the one from 1897. Frederick Remington, an artist for Hearst Newspapers, cabled from Cuba to the great one, Wm Hearst, that there would be no war. Hearst cabled back ‘You provide the pictures, I’ll provide the war’ Does anyone see comparisons betweenthe US and GB after WWII and the US and China now that they have declared economic war against us. This was has been a little less bloody despite the casualties suffered by our troops in the war we lost aka The Vietnam War. But we are losing the battle for currency supremacy at the hands of China, their ownership of our debt and their ability to grow their economy at the cost of ours. GB has suffered for 60 years under the soft tyranny of diminished economic expectations and the penury of their people. We face the same end. The Titanic story seems to fit into that part of the larger puzzle.
Publicly FDR was opposed but I think he wanted in on the war. Some newspaper reported that japan would attack Pearl Harbor on the weekend it happened and he did nothing to heighten security. In fact from what I read he had docked at the harbour old obsolete, ready to be condemned ships in anticipation of the attack. I believe we placed an embargo on them as well before the attack. Which was a non aggressive act of war.
that definitely connects the dots. The embargoes of oil, coal and ironin 1934 or so forced the Japanese to take over large parts of China and the southeast region through the Asian Coprosperity Sphere. There’s an great phrase. We now embargo Iran with SWIFT as the lastest salvo while Russia and China made it clear that attacking Iran would be considered an act of war. We are living in interesting times.
Interesting times indeed. I believe by 2016 WW3 will be upon us. Unfortunately.
Its all about supply and demand. If oil is withheld from the US world war will be upon us all. So if our Dollar dies say 2014 and no one is willing to accept our currency then the USA will attempt to take it. 2015/16?
But who knows Israel has a death wish, so after the elections we might have a confrontation with Iran. 2013 isnt going to be pleasant.
The Federal Reserve now has a Twitter manage. Finance-minded customers
with an eye for transparency can follow the organization now,
@federalreserve. Well, source predict that Federal Reserve videos
linked to via Twitter will be a mix of current topics and instructional
archived lectures. With only-140 character brevity, Fed’s twitter
account is the simplified @fedralreserve instead of policy making panel
which is the Federal Open Market Committee. In fact, Bernanke and top
officials likely won’t be doing the tweeting directly. That job will
fall upon the tweeting fingers of junior Fed staff. Article source: https://personalmoneynetwork.com/moneyblog/2012/03/19/federal-reserve-tweeting-updates-of-rates-speeches-and-more/

Follow buttons around the world are clicking today because the most closely watched central bankers in the world just joined the Twitterverse.The Associated Press reports that the Federal Reserve has strapped on its social networking wings in order to better communicate what it is doing to the public. The organization recently unveiled its official Twitter channel, @federalreserve. While not necessarily humorous or philosophically insightful, Fed tweets will without doubt serve to educate the general public as to what is happening with rates of interest, currency and other internal workings of the organization.

" Thanks, APMEX and Provident are the only two I've dealt with online. Similar to you my experiences with both were great. I like APMEX for some of the more unique coins that they offer. Generally Provident is best for prices on regular stuff. "Reply To: Pawn Shop
