100 Years of Slavery is Enough: End the Fed

Watch the following animated cartoon concerning the collapse of the “American dream.” You’ll notice that at no point in its entire half-hour run time is there any mention of “Jews” or “AIPAC” or “Israel”—nor about the subservience to the Jewish state exhibited by our leaders in Washington, nor the wars or financial ruin brought upon us by this subservient, satellite alliance. BUT—the animation does give us a rather interesting depiction of the international bankers…as snakes with red shields.

In German, the words “red shield” translate to rot Schild, or Rothschild. Moreover, there can be no doubt the Jewish Rothschild family is the one being referred to, for the history of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815—as related at about 15 minutes into the video—is clearly the history of the Rothschild family. A Jewish family whose members are depicted as snakes. Is the cartoon therefore anti-Semitic? Or is it merely making a truthful observation?

What we have here is a video created by an obvious “non-anti-Semite,” but which at the same time possesses, shall we say, certain “anti-Semitic connotations” in its depiction of Jewish bankers as snakes. The lesson to be drawn would therefore be that even if you’re not an anti-Semite, or if you’re at any rate making a concerted effort to avoid sounding like one, “anti-Semitism” nonetheless is completely unavoidable if you’re to say anything of substance about the world we live in. That seems to be the nature of reality these days.

I mention all this because next year, 2013, will mark the 100th anniversary of the passage of the Federal Reserve Act. Presumably there will be some kind of protest. Ideally, this would be a massive demonstration outside the main Federal Reserve in Washington, with related protests at each of the 12 Federal Reserve regional banks. This could easily become a nationwide movement, and one thing it has going for it is that whether you’re a Tea Party-ist on the Right, or an antiwar activist on the Left, presumably we could all agree that the bankers have too much power and the Fed ought to be ended. Yet so far, at least as of now, there doesn’t seem to be much on the Web about a protest or even about the anniversary at all. On a Ron Paul site here you can find a brief acknowledgement that the anniversary is approaching, likewise here, or go here and here and read about the 100th anniversary of the Jekyll Island meeting (an anniversary that actually occurred two years ago). But that’s largely it, other than, of course, mentions by the Federal Reserve itself (which seem to be stated in a deliberately low key manner).

The Federal Reserve was created by act of Congress on December 23, 1913, so there’s plenty of time yet to organize something. But a key question, as the date approaches and people plan events, is to what extent organizers will feel themselves able to freely discuss the “anti-Semitic” aspects of the issue that could and should be addressed. My guess is there will be a huge reticence in this regard, but the fact is the Federal Reserve is Jewish at its very core. The Rothschild family was intimately involved in establishing the Fed, mainly through the efforts of its U.S. agents, Jacob Schiff and Paul Warburg, both of whom were connected to the Kuhn, Loeb, and Co. investment bank. Here is what I wrote about the Fed in an article I posted roughly a year ago:

Since its creation in 1913, the Federal Reserve has had 14 chairmen, five of whom have been Jewish, including Charles S. Hamlin, the very first Fed chairman, and Ben Bernanke, who holds the position today. This means slightly more than a third of all the chairmen have been Jewish. To put that into perspective, Jews make up roughly 2.2 percent of the U.S. population, while Asians, African-Americans and Hispanics/Latinos together comprise approximately 34.5 percent. There has never been a single Hispanic, African-American, or Asian-American Fed chairman. Last year, Obama appointed three new members to the Fed’s Board of Governors: Janet Yellen, Sarah Bloom Raskin, and Peter Diamond. Though such things are difficult to verify, it has been claimed that all three are Jewish. Yellen succeeded Donald Kohn as vice-chairman of the board.

So as I say, an “End-the-Fed” protest is very much in order, and of course such a protest could perhaps use a logo. The graphic you see at the top of this post is one I did myself. It’s a humble offering, and without a doubt better artists than I could improve upon the design, but if you so desire, feel free to copy and make use of it.

    It is amazing that over a century Americans have somehow managed to shelter themselves from the knowledge that the FED is a PRIVATE institution. I talked to people who are lawyers and physicians who were convinced the Fed is the central bank of the government. The video –which is terrific–makes a good point of explaining one of the reason for the (intentional) confusion: what has befuddled people is that it is called “federal”… Incredible. Just like, what? FedEx?
    Great posting!
