"Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day."
Theodore Roosevelt
(1858-1919) 26th US President
April 19, 1906

    They're called Bankers.

    And the way to destroy the "unholy alliance" is to abolish the Federal reserve and all Central banks.

    I recall reading a book by H.S. Kennan about 1962
    that well describes how a rep. from the house of Rothchild wormed the Fed. Reserve into our fiancial structure in about 1913 ... That was the beginning of the end for th U.S.A.'s fiancial independence......

    Not shooting the messenger (most of what actually passed as law during his day was antithetical to the above quote), very accurate.

    He is talking about the Rothschild banking dynasty. They own/control nearly every country except those troublesome middle eastern countries that issue their own money interest-free -- yes, all the countries the US military is currently bombing. But pay attention to Russia which has managed to kick out the Rothschild banks and is returning to productivity. That was definitely NOT part of the Rothschild plan. Right now, Russia is less communistic than the US. Will Americans ever learn?
