The Bankers Manifesto of 1892

(they're megalomaniacs!!)

http://www.federalobserver.com/archive.php?aid=7124

Revealed by US Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, SR from Minnesota before the US Congress sometime during his term of office between the years of 1907 and 1917 to warn the citizens.

"We (the bankers) must proceed with caution and guard every move made, for the lower order of people are already showing signs of restless commotion. Prudence will therefore show a policy of apparently yielding to the popular will until our plans are so far consummated that we can declare our designs without fear of any organized resistance.

The Farmers Alliance and Knights of Labor organizations in the United States should be carefully watched by our trusted men, and we must take immediate steps to control these organizations in our interest or disrupt them.

At the coming Omaha Convention to be held July 4th (1892), our men must attend and direct its movement, or else there will be set on foot such antagonism to our designs as may require force to overcome. This at the present time would be premature. We are not yet ready for such a crisis. Capital must protect itself in every possible manner through combination (conspiracy) and legislation.

The courts must be called to our aid, debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible.

When through the process of the law, the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of the government applied to a central power of imperial wealth under the control of the leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders.

History repeats itself in regular cycles. This truth is well known among our principal men who are engaged in forming an imperialism of the world. While they are doing this, the people must be kept in a state of political antagonism.

The question of tariff reform must be urged through the organization known as the Democratic Party, and the question of protection with the reciprocity must be forced to view through the Republican Party.

By thus dividing voters, we can get them to expand their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us, except as teachers to the common herd. Thus, by discrete action, we can secure all that has been so generously planned and successfully accomplished."

It seems as if they are continuing to follow that same MO today. Very revealing. I bookmarked and saved a copy to my OWS folder. Thanx!

Another good read about the past that I recommend:

The article about Eccles, which was interesting btw, made me think of George Bailey.

Yeah right, every banker/trader gets initiated through a secret ritual which involved human sacrifice as well. I went through the same when I joined Wall St and I had to swore to the ultimate goal of owning the world. We are on it and proceeding well.

To add some grist to that mill, Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh was flying ace, 'Lucky Lindy's' father whose child was kidnapped and never found ... !!! ~{:-(

I wonder how Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh learned about the Bankers Manifesto of 1892 and what the public reaction was when he revealed it. If the Manifesto is real, the bankers were conspiring against honest Americans way before the Federal Reserve Act was enacted in 1913. Not much has changed over the past century except that the bankers are more firmly in control of the levers of government than ever before and can do pretty much as they like, independent of which political party controls the White House or the U.S. Congress.

He wasn't the first or the last to pay the ultimate price for being one of the White Hats.

I think this (OWS) is the initiation for those banker/traders brave enough to go thru it ;)

Thanks for the inside information. You weren't supposed to tell.
