America's wealthiest financial families earned the name "the Money Mafia" as they muscled the governors and legislators of the 48 continuous States to ratify the 16th and 17th Amendments between 1909 and the election of Thomas Woodrow Wilson in 1912. Those in the State legislatures who were exposed to the financial giants at the pinnacle of power not only in the United States, but in the emerging New World Order, were shocked to learn that there were men so powerful that presidents and prime ministers trembled when they called. Men so powerful that a single word from them, uttered privately, could bring the career of a prominent, successful Congressman or Senator to an abrupt end.

Ask anyone if they can guess who is the wealthiest person in the world and the odds are the first name you will hear is Bill Gates or Sam Walton's children. Or, perhaps it will be some other name that appears annually on the Forbes or Fortune list of the nation's richest families—names like Larry Page or Sergy Brin from Google, or Amazon.com's founder Jeff Bezos, or Yahoo's founders, Dave Filo and Jerry Yang since these are the "blue chips" of the cyberworld. Every now and then, because they heard the names growing up, someone will mention names like Rockefeller or Rothschild or one of the other titans of banking or industry like Carnegie, Vanderbilt, Astor or even Guggenheim. What you won't hear are names like Burns, Dawkins, Gilbert or Leffingwell. Yet those are the names of wealth. In fact, each of those families could write a personal check and buy the vast holdings of Gates, Walton, Page, Brin, Bezos or anyone else on the Forbes list of the world's wealthiest families. Real wealth is so invisible that not only is it never seen by the working class, the families who control it are never mentioned by the media they control. Paparazzos don't lay in wait to get their picture—in fact, they are seldom, if ever, photographed in public. The tabloids don't write about them because their lives are as private as their wealth. They live on the pinnacle of the world, but as far as the world is concerned, they don't exist.
The Money Mafia families, which own all of the interlocking shares of all of the central banks of the world—including the United States' Federal Reserve Bank—are provided complete anonymity. Because they don't exist to the fourth estate they, quite simply, don't exist on anyone's radar screen. Their names are names few Americans—except a history buff—would even know although national politicians and world leaders know their names, and fear them. These are the names of the invisible backers of the New World Order.
In Europe, the names are Baring, Erlanger, Fould, Kuhn, Lazard, Loebb, Mallet, Mirabaud, Nobel, Rhodes, Rothschild, Schneider, Schroder, Seligman and Speyers. In the United States, the names of Astor, Carnegie, Dillon, DuPont, Gould, Mellon, McCormick, Morgan, Vanderbilt, and Rockefeller are the most commonly known titans of banking and industry. We've heard the names and associate them with wealth. But real wealth—wealth so vast it can't be measured by any of today's yardsticks—resides within those families. Their wealth can be measured only by the worth of the dividends and interest they earn on their money since their core wealth is beyond comprehension. They are the new aristocrats. They are the spine of the New World Order. The names that will surprise you are the names of lesser known shareholders of the 1914 stock issue for the Federal Reserve Bank. Names like Walter Burns, Clinton Dawkins; John W. Davis, John Foster Dulles, S. Parker Gilbert, Edward Grenfell, William Leffingwell, and Elihu Root.
The Old World Order—the royalty of Europe and the vast landowners of Europe, America and in the emerging nations—began to lose their autonomous grip on global power as the 20th century broke over the horizon in Europe. The lofty objectives of the princes of industry and the barons of banking were suddenly at odds with the goals of the monarchs of Europe who ruled kingdoms that have existed since medieval days.
As it prepared to enter the promise of the 20th century, Europe was a boiling pot of intrigue as the Money Mafia behind the seats of governance of the nation-states jockeyed for more financial, economic, and social power over the working class masses. At the same time, the disenfranchised of Europe, emotionally fueled by the socialists who preached equality from the lecterns of the universities and religious freedom from the pulpits of the churches, prepared for revolution as they sought liberty from tyrants who believed the blood of the royals was somehow different than the blood of the working class because the power to govern rested in their hands.
War was brewing on the continent, but in the opening days of the 20th century, it was merely a disdainful rumbling, like the distant thunder of an impending storm that the world chose to ignore. Most convinced themselves that the distant thunder was merely the sounds of a rapidly expanding world economy bulging at the seams as it sought new outlets for its wares. The 20th century offered both the industrialist and the banker a heretofore unimaginable opportunity for increased wealth and prosperity. Only one thing stood in their way—the nations themselves.
Each, before they joined forces and became the Money Mafia, had their own dreams and visions of the future. The industrialist envisioned a Europe they would dominate—from the markets in Paris, London, Berlin, Stockholm, and Amsterdam to St. Petersburg and Rome—without trade barriers or tariffs to restrict their transnational marketing activities. The bankers grandiosely envisioned a Europe without borders, ruled by a consortium of men like themselves who possessed not only vast wealth, but the knowledge how to use that wealth to create a profitable global society in which they would control the counting houses that partitioned the wealth and divided the spoils of the sweat equity of the working class. Their New World order would be an economic utopia in which all men could, and would, be productive members of a world system without war, prejudice or cultural hate.
The world erupted into a war that no European nation wanted, and every nation on the continent tried to prevent. it began with the assassination of Austrian Archduke Francis Ferdinand and his commoner wife, Sophie Chotek, in the streets of Sarajevo on June 28, 1914. But to claim that the assassination of the heir to the Hapsburg throne was the catalyst that brought all of the nations of Europe to the battlefield was the reason the world went to war is like claiming its the cigarette after sex that makes a woman pregnant. The world went to war in 1914 because the Money Mafia needed a crisis of catastrophic proportions to prepare the world for the cure—world government. That was, after all, the reason the world went to war in 1914.
As Thomas Woodrow Wilson, the Money Mafia's personal president, prepared America's youngbloods for Europe's war, Congress hurriedly enacted an anti-competition bill that was loosely disguised as an anti-trade bill called The Trading With the Enemy Act of 1917. The Trading With the Enemy Act prevented anyone—except the transnational industrialists and bankers in the Money Mafia—from doing business with enemies of the United States during times of war. (During World War II the privately-owned Bank of England loaned millions of pounds to Germany financing, in part, the war Hitler waged against England.) Ford Motor Company and Standard Oil continued were among several Allied corporations allowed to continue doing business with Germany throughout the war years. Ford and Standard Oil had working arrangements with I.G. Farben, the company that shared the ownership of Zyklon-B with the German chemical giant, Degesch.
It would be The Trading With the Enemy Act that Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal Democrats would modify in 1933 to classify the American people as enemies of the government so FDR could justify seizing the gold coins or gold certificates legally owned by them. That same precedent has been used over the years to nullify the 4th Amendment and seize the assets of Americans without due process.
We are now living in perilous times. The problems which plague our nation—and the other industrialized nations that have surrendered jobs to the societal planners of the Money Mafia in their proemial effort to prepare America for membership in the stateless, multicultural global community just around the corner to global Utopia. The final phrase of the Money Mafia's century-old grandiose scheme to create a stateless world government is near. No longer is it a question of whether or not world government can be achieved. It can be. And, sadly, it will be. The only question as yet unanswered is "when."
Over the past two decades the Money Mafia has become emboldened by its success in merging the nations of Europe into the European Union, and erasing the borders that separated the nation-states of the Old World Order. NAFTA has created a tariff-free swinging door that allows goods manufactured by exported American jobs return to this country to be sold—as US brand names—in the stores and shops of America. The American dollar has already unofficially become the hemispheric monetary unit. Five regional currencies will replace 185 currencies within the next five years. Within another two years, they will all be swallowed by the cybercurrency of Utopia—as the curtains on center stage part to expose the world promised in Revelation 11, 17 and 18. And, because they appear to be doing nothing to stop it, we can only assume America awaits its arrival with gleeful anticipation of children impatiently awaiting Santa Claus.
the foundation of the Money Mafia's New World Order was cast in secret,
the framework of the soon-coming global government has not only been
largely accomplished in the open for all the world to see, but the Money
Mafia has boldly told us what they were doing as they paved the road
to Utopia. Apparently, we weren't listening—or, if we were, we didn't
care enough for liberty to protect our own right to keep it.
