Whoever holds the purse strings, is the boss -- always was, always will be.

History has proven, has it not?

As evidenced by the Bush administration's actions...

Mr. Rothschild quite pointedly shows us the nature, desires, and methods of both he and his fellow Jews through this one quote.
 -- Brian D. Pickett, Tampa, Florida
 
I will exceed Rothschild family wealth and than see who makes the law.
 -- Upcoming Illminati , The Global World
 
Where did this quote come from? WHAT is its source? All I see is a anti-Semitic back-slapping
 -- William Ballintine, Fort Worth
 
I think that the exact qoute is, "Give me control of a nation's money SUPPLY, and I care not who makes the laws."
 -- Anonymous
 
Yep, William, how did you derive at anti-Semitic back-slapping? At issue is funny money's monopoly. The green doesn't care about race or religion.

The establishment has spoken. The Rothschilds (Bauers) started out as thieves and have perfected it.
 -- J Carlton, Calgary
 
Who wouldn't agree with that? I'll take all the money and I damn sure would no longer care about who made the laws. Whoops take that back. Hillary would take it all back. He probably didn't conceive of such an act of tyranny in this country back then.
 -- warren, olathe
 
A well known quote that far too few people really understand. Most upon discovering the trick of creating interest-bearing debt get sucked in to how to make money off the system rather than how to get rid of it. warren, if you do not know who the Rothschilds are, their history, and their inroads into the American economy, you have a lot to learn.
 -- E Archer, NYC
 
E Archer, NYC yea I do know about the Rothschild’s. So what. What the hell is your point? You don't think that having control of the money is more power than making laws? If you control all the money do you not have the maker of laws at your disposal? The only thing you would fear is a socialist in power.
 -- warren, olathe
 
Let's not make this quote or responses to it racist when the issue of race is totally irrelevant to this issue. Economic freedom is necessary for political and religious freedom. They are not separate freedoms. They are all part of freedom. When economic freedom is jeopardized, as the manipulation of the currency has done, all freedom is in check.

Since the Woodrow Wilson presidency and FDR, taking this country off of the gold standard, this country has been on the "fast-forward" slippery slope toward a Totalitarian State. (The One-World-Order) Incrementally, we are folding from within!! We are presently only as FREE as the small group of "ELITIST'S" running the world, will allow us to be. Where is the PUBLIC'S OUTRAGE???

I think we ought to find this Son of a Bitch and execute him. Then lets see what he does with his 100 trillion dollars.

That, Mr Pickett, is an unacceptable and ignorant comment.
 -- Richard, Europe
 
William Ballantine pulls the old "Anti Semite" card. Very outdated and overused tactic especially because many of the people who have been totally against the Rothschilds family are Jewish (like myself). You demand a "Source". What part of "Creature from Jekyl Island" did you not comprehend? This is now a well known book.

Wow. This guy is really corrupt.

I would truly like to see the current family of Rothchilds gently swaying from trees. You would think the 6 billion or so who are NOT Illuminati could somehow get this done. Long rifles would also be an acceptable remedy (JFK style).

When you have the control about nations money, you also have the control about the nations economy, about the people and about ALL! Dictature!

Considering the Rothschild dynasty was in part responsible for backing Hitler, I find the claim of "anti-Semitism" to be laughable. This is THE quote that sums up the elites' nihilism and arrogance.

Most but not all central bankers are NOT Jewish. Why talk about a quote from some long-dead Jew? Why not talk about ME and what we're STILL doing to YOU with our privately-owned "Federal" Reserve banks in the USA? You ain't seen nothin' yet. With love & kisses, "Helicopter Ben" & the Boys.

as long money control this world the rothchilds will be in charge so let it go and just live for you and not just money.

Scary as hell when you look around and see what is going on right now. We have all forgotten our fore father's dreams and let these kind of men rule us with illegal taxation and fear and yet we do nothing. Our Father's would disown every last one of us for not getting off our knees
 -- Sinner, Minot nd
 
don't be a "dreamer"...WAKE UP! and SEE the TRUTH! I never learned any of this in school!! What I was taught were all LIES! Thank god for internet! There is a wealth and tomes of information available if you really want to know: "WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON IN OUR WORLD?" You will be shocked into reality! As always: "eat the meat, spit out the bones". Bon appetit!

Except you would NOT have to fear a socialist in power, because then you wouldnt have to hide in your business handing checks to the government to get what you want done, because it would be a part of the same revenue sheet and you would simply have your own chair with the knights of the oval table. Then you would be bound by its legal systems, but you would have a self-elected vote in what was legal. And that would be more difficult because then your lacky politicians would see themselves equal to you in some way then figure out they can vote you out of power, just like the people will realize we can vote ourselves largesse out of the public treasury, the fallible idea of democracy will fail, and we will renew our constitution and republic, unmolested by the tyranny of greed.

And now Big Pharma says the same. "Give me control of a nation's drugs and I care not who makes the laws.". Free thinking outside the established medical box and having the audacity to actually try and seek the cause of disease rather than treat the end result is now classified by many Western Medical 'Authorities' as unacceptable. We must now move forward into the exciting fields of energy medicine and out of the umbrella of drug therapy controlled money hungry cartels. Dr.Michael Tait Gold Coast Australia

why did the rothschild's bank (lehman) have to declare bankruptcy in 2008 if the rothschilds are so powerful
 -- dujac, henleyfield
 
dujac,because they could afford to do it. With many subsidiaries and their power(Roths.) and the help of other likeminded NWO friends the tactics are deflate the shares run the economies down whence many companies and businesses go broke then buy up at VERY LOW prices the bad shares and miraculously ,some how the disaster is'nt as bad the Dow Jones goes up and thousands,maybe even millions of companies get taken over by the elites. The Rothschilds never loose a cent.Its all mirrors and phoney figures.

The world's first central bank, the Bank of England, was chartered in 1792, largely at the behest of Mayer Rothschild. He was the most politically connected, hence most influential banker in England at that time, and, in retrospect, the meaning of his remark is clear: give me a central bank which I can control and, over time, I can get around whatever institutional safeguards are present, and use it to seize control of the country. And that's what eventually happens in every nation that establishes a central bank. Rothschild's quote, in short is a concise description of the root cause of the present global crisis.

If you ever wondered how Hitler could afford this war and why some jews could leave Germany early enough to save their lives, where others suffered for those who's financial plan got wrong when they realised that Hitler was actually not controllable, the Rothschilds could probably answer your questions.

for those that don't get it, the rothschild family line is in no way jewish. they do not have hebrew blood in them at all.

People have to remember the Rothschild family rode the wave of industrialization which originated in the UK. The key to their success was the fact that many stupid monarchs had no idea about financial security and flailed in times of war and unrest. The rothschilds were basically intelligent people in the right place at the right time which resulted in them gaining more and more trust. Although they missed being the face of a new emerging America after the civil war they still had huge influence from afar. This is all ok I suppose but what is of concern is how they and other influential financial families/banks can effectively enforce a kind of regionalism, where any form of decision making responsibility is taken away from localized groups or councils and centralized to their benefit. Also, influence of the federal reserve is something which should become more transparent as we are given no information regarding it's true control and backing, who is the fed res truly answerable to.

Fuuny isn't it how we complain about thingsthat are so dear and important to us. TV said the other night that banks will continue to get bigger and bigger. In a free market (which every ones says they love) when this happes it is considered a good thing. I don't know what I would do without my banks and the services that they peovide me. We (in the form of the government) simply need to regulate them more. Today's quotes suck! Those interested in The Fed should google it and read up on it.
 -- Waffler, Smith
 
The Federal Reserve, or rather its owners are the source of almost every evil on the planet. The Rothscilds are the epitome of evil.
 -- J Carlton, Calgary
 
Mayer Amschel Bauer is his real name, his blood is traced like the other elite families to the Edom/Esau which are the twin brother of Jacob/Israel. So The Bauers/so called Rothchilds are not Jews. They just took this "Red Shield" name (in German) as they tried to steal the identity of the Maccabean Revolt (led by Judas Maccabeus) during the time of the Greeks invading Jerusalem 167160 BC. Study Edomea in history and the Elite will make sense on why they try to steal the Jewish identity and why they stir the world to anti-Semitism - more accurately anti- Jews. In my part this is a great tragedy and in my opinion, very wrong in the eyes of God.

I understand that you all are resentful of the Rothschild family. But the truth is, the series of events that they and their cohorts have triggered can no longer be stopped or reversed. There is no reason to believe that anything can or will prevent the rise of the so-called New World Order. Even the Bible says that it will come. Democracy's time is almost up, and the masses are too stupid to organize themselves to save it. Don't resist the NWO. Embrace it. If you cant beat them, join them. Democracy is doomed. Adapt to this fact, or die.

The quotation forced into Rothschild's mouth is a brazen fake. No quoted source is ever given. Is he supposedly being quoted from a book he wrote, a pamphlet he published, a speech he gave, a casual remark he made at dinner - or what? Where did Rothschild supposedly say these words - at home, at the club? To whom did he utter these supposed words?
 -- GJL, Abbotsford BC
 
Right you are. More nonsense has been written about the Rothschilds than nearly any other family....ever. However, they ARE Jewish as irrelevant as that really is. As for the quote? True or not, the curren Fed sure makes use of it. In the coming Presidential Election, without regard to WHO gets elected, will it make any difference? Will the debt go down? OR, as is more likely, the Fed will continue to create FIAT money at the same alarming rate.

I think you're all right wing Anti-Semetic nut jobs.

And don't go around using Ralph Nader's name in vain while you're spouting this garbage

As for the rare voices of reason on this blog- don't even bother with these people- you can't reconnect them with reality- they're too far gone.

The Creature from Jekyll Island takes that quote from:

Robert L. Owen, "National Economy and the Banking System" (United States Govt. print. off., 1939) p.99

Robert L. Owen was a U.S. Senator who co-sponsored the Federal Reserve Act, and a former Chairman for the Committee on Banking and Currency.

That publication doesn't attribute any source for the quote, just a name and year (Mayer Anselm Rothschild, 1790.)

I believe in the endoctrine of the nation of the people governed for the people and by the people. We the People of The United States hereby stand forth and declare the abiding rights of every man and women, regardless of race, color, creed, sexual preference or religion, that each each individual shall be promised the same outcomes and livelihoods as all of those around them. To state forth is to give equal opportunity to everyone who lives in this country and allow for the breeding grounds of civility and human rights as in the humanity for others.

To just say the Rothchilds are not Jews is incorrect. They are religiously Jews. To say they are not Hebrews perhaps is another thing .
 -- STEPHEN, JHB
 
While I agree with the quote as being 100% true, Mayer & his money changer descendants (who have no religion other than gold, corruption & greed, but who invented & use the propaganda of anti-semitism as a scapegoat to hide behind) have infiltrated every nation of the globe & implemented a central bank in all but a handful of countries. In these nations they control the money, economies, politics & therefore the world… but only as long as people choose to play their game & accept their monopoly money. The choice to stop is ours at any time, the only hinderance is the massive brainwashing & lack of education of the masses. As long as they choose to believe the TV, which is owned & controlled by these same men, there is no hope for the multitudes. They shall be forever enslaved, thinking they are free men.

I think we'd all do the same thing in that position with that much money, power, and freedom (think about it..) and we'd all call that person a Jew regardless, because that is the definition of one, because is no other, making it divine as their near deathstiny.
