WIDER ROAD TO PERDITION

Can the U.S. of A survive another two plus years of its president's agenda to marginalize the nation and become just another third world puppet, a part of the New World Order?
Alexander Tytler (1771) is credited to have made the following statement regarding the cyclical rise and fall of democracies and republics ... that they invariably revert to failed democracies. This country is far along the path towards its tortured demise because once citizens realize that they can obtain largess at the expense of others without their earning it, the system simply implodes upon itself.
Our country was fortunate from its earliest stages to have immigrants who experienced the yoke of religious intolerance, the cruelest poverty imposed by fiefdoms and kings, but they took the risk using fortitude and perseverance to settle in a hostile wilderness where starvation was ever present and natives and wild animals challenged at every turn in the process of creating a homeland. For months, through thousands of treacherous miles, they were incased within the walls of tiny sailing ships and treacherous North Sea.
The pioneer spirit was born in the progeny of these early settlers. They had imbedded within themselves the desire for independence, the will to sacrifice and the drive to achieve goals , create economic independence that was unique to those countries from which they left.
The challenge of the settlers arose from the tentacles of British rule and military occupation that King George III enforced on his colonial subjects, using unfair taxation, brutality and measures so abhorrent as to cause the writing of a declaration of independence by men of intelligence and noble intent. By doing so, for the most part, they signed their death warrants, their family inheritances, their own lives, even their wives and children. They assembled to write a constitution, so endowed from their Creator that a bill of Rights was affixed to the document from which our nation was to follow despite political future, pearls of the Revolutionary war, economic diversions, divisions so enormous as to finally bring the nation to its knees in civil war in 1861.
After the Civil War, The Homestead Act opened up the western plains for agriculture, oil and industrial development from Oklahoma to the Continental Divide and a flood of settlers continued on to California.
Before the Civil War, the Southern states depended on cotton and agriculture and a work force to farm crops and export produce and cotton to Europe and the textile mills located in the North. The North was far advanced in industrial development and a vibrant economy and the imbalance was so great, that the Southern States were teetering on economic ineptitude. There were attempts to block Southern cotton shipment to Europe because of the needs of Northern mills. The politics on both sides collided and the members of the South within the U.S. congress left to join Jefferson Davis who formed a new , separate democratic government. Without declaring seine die congress remained still in session throughout the war without any representation from the deep South. In 1865, the congress reunited, but with a wholly different representation favoring the northern Republican members and a much weakened membership representing what was a desolate, bombed out countryside and piles of rubble instead of cities. A significant part of the ruin was the result of Sherman's March to the Sea and Grant's ruthless tactics, approved by President Lincoln, that quickly destroyed what was left of a civilized South.
When Grant became President, and his administration was the most corrupt and mismanaged until the 20th Century where too many remnants with similar proclivities found their way in the nation's political caldron.
The Southern states suffered a second invasion of carpetbaggers and scallywags, protected by Union Troops on every street corner. The desolate farmers and those owning anything of value were illegally denied protection under common law because members of the Republican Party were ruthless and condoned the thievery and corruption equal to any of Hitler's Shutstoffel or Stalin's Red Army as occupiers of the fallen Third Reich. The result of this cruelty birthed the Democrat Party wholly representing the South's interests for the following one hundred-twenty-nine years.
The South really never emerged from deep recession, even depression, and a deep hatred of the Northern States was imbedded in the culture until the invention of air conditioning which allowed rail and truck transport of perishable goods. This slowly improved the economy up to the period of Roosevelt's Lend Lease Program and war preparations which introduced high employment and a fledgling army to be rebuilt after it massive reduction after WW I. Heavy manufacturing of the weapons of war created an impetus for long needed prosperity.
There were glitches of long lasting negative consequences in the process of tumultuous growth; the major impediment was the money system. The dollar was backed by duel metals, silver and gold. The ratio of the value of gold cause the silver portion of the nation's reserves to be less desirable and a run on the U.S. gold by foreign countries holding drafts redeemable in gold destabilized the value of the dollar and with it the ratio of silver to gold. A financial panic ensued in 1893. That problem motivated Grover Cleveland to approach Pierpont Morgan for help in saving the country from bankruptcy. According to Ron Chernow's epic book, THE HOUSE OF MORGAN, there were just 9 million dollars in gold left in the government vaults and Morgan told the president that he knew that there was a foreign government's draft for $10 million in gold to be presented that very day.
The Morgan and Rothschild houses in New York and London provided 3.5 million ounces in gold at least half from Europe in exchange for about 65 million worth of thirty year bonds, The legality to do this was a 1862 Lincoln emergency statute granted the Lincoln Administration powers to bu gold during the Civil War.
The scheme worked temporarily and the bonds paid 3!/2% considered extremely high at par and sold out in the first hours at 112, by the end of the day they were priced at 119. In just 22 minutes the bankers had booked $6 to $7 million in profits. The populist uproar was furious and laced with anti-Semitism because of the Rothschild participation.
According to Ron Chernow's research They labeled President Cleveland a tool of Jewish bankers and the New York World described the syndicate as a pack of "bloodsucking Jews and aliens." In his vehement denunciation in Congress, William Jennings Brian ask the clerk to read Shylock's Bond from the Merchant of Venice.*
Oh No! ANOTHER PANIC???
On March 25th, 1907, a selling panic occurred that shook up Wall Street which became the impetus for the Frick, Rockefeller, Schiff and, Harriman interests to have a secret meeting, the purpose of which was to create a $25 million dollar pool to steady prices. They prevailed upon Jack (JP Morgan) to contact his father, Pierpont Morgan Jack favored the scheme, but Pierpont, a wiser banker with a memory of the 1893 bailout didn't buy the proposal because the money really needed according to Jacob Schiff would be very small, a moral effect of concerted action would be sufficient without the actual purchase. Pierpont fired back that the proposal was unwise, entire at variance with all the policies of the past being the head of a declared stock exchange,
* Shylock wanted a pound of human flesh from the debtor for failure to fulfill his repayment obligation.
As the panic increased Pierpont rushed back from Europe to save the financial security of the United States and the stock exchange along with several trust companies. According to Ron Chernow's account in his book, it turns out that the government and the public considered the House of Morgan too powerful to be in control. The panic was blamed on many factors - tight money, Teddy Roosevelt's Gridiron Club speech attacking the malefactors of great wealth, speculation in copper mining and railroad stocks. That was Piermont's last hurrah. He never was able to perform what he did and paid the price. Never let it be said that a good deed will be left unpunished.
As far back as 1893, the Rothchilds were planning to introduce central banking to the United States. It wasn't long before the seeds were adopted by Jack Morgan's grandfather, Senator Aldrich, who was on Jack and his brothers' maternal side, Aldrich was uptight with the Rothchilds and Rockefeller interests and became the inside manipulator within the Senate as a key member contributor of ideas and political schemes in the Jekyll Island Club's secret meetings. The plan was to create debt created money instead of solid backing of the dollar. Soon, the Secretary Franklin McVeigh was enlisted, a traitor disloyal to President Taft who was not enamored with a central banking system of which the Rothschild mega banks were involved. Other key congressmen were enlisted. The plotters were able to convince many members of the U.S. Senate to approve a central bank as early as 1911, but that effort failed because the democrat opposition to Senator Aldrich's involvement and ties with the Rothchilds and Morgan Stanley's London interests its active involvement within the circle of Jekyll Island Club plotters.
It took until December 22, 1912, while the majority of the Senate was on Christmas break and with only a quorum present, to pass the Federal Reserve Act legitimizing foreign banking intervention within the central bank system of the United States of America. The result of this treasonous Act was the creation of money backed by debt in the form of U.S. Treasury bonds without collateral, but approved by Congress as the political need arises. From that point on money could be created out of thin air and the central banks could collect interest on loans through the use of factoring.
The debt, at first increased slowly, but as the imperialism desires of the Willsonian adventure in global hegemony and its enormous cost of WW I, including loans to our foreign allies which they refused to repay. The solution was to forgive the loans and wipe them from records. The solution to the debt to the United States Treasury resulting from hundreds of millions of dollars to France and Great Britain in order to defeat the Bosch and its economic juggernaut of unbeatable competition using quality products better than any other nation in competition to it. WW I was contrived with Teddy Roosevelt's complicity after leaving office.
Teddy was interested in his desire to involve the United States away from isolationism and place the nation's interests on the world stage. He believed Taft was in agreement with these objectives, but soon was disabused to continue supporting Taft because of Taft's objection to involvement in the affairs of Europe.
As a result, Teddy formed the Bull Moose Party to split the political support for Taft thus enhancing Wilson's chances to be elected president. It worked and the candidate that was the tool of the international bankers launched America into WW I.
The policy prior to the Willsonian era were defensive and predicated on the Monroe Doctrine which declared that all foreign influence within the Americas would be regarded as an act of hostility against the interests of the United States. The Spanish occupation of Cuba fell into that category. Grover Cleveland skillfully avoided any American involvement after the rebellion in 1895 and the revolution that followed in Cuba. President McKinley followed the Cleveland Administration in 1897 and proceeded with caution. In May of 1897, he asked congress to appropriate $50,000 for the relief of Americans stranded on the Island. Publisher William Randolph Hurst and Joseph Pulitzer began using the Cuban Revolution to increase circulation. They sent reporters to Cuba to exaggerate atrocities committed by the Spanish troops. This fires up the politicians in Congress to revive the expansionist fever that was not the "Manifest Destiny" of the United States beyond its existing borders. McKinley hoped that he could intervene and act as a mediator between Cubans and the Spanish Government. This was not to be because on February 15th the battleship Maine was blown up. On April 25th, McKinley asked congress for a declaration of war.
