Gustavus Myers Quote

“Under the surface, the Rothschilds long had a powerful influence in dictating American financial laws. The law records show that they were powers in the old Bank of the United States [abolished by Andrew Jackson].”

~ Gustavus Myers

"Great Fortunes from Railroads", 1910, p.183

Anyone starting to see the real reason for the civil war yet?

I think it is interesting that the wealthiest family on the planet is beyond reproach, ever ignored by the media and politicians, never spoken of at all in any public forum, yet they control nearly all the governments of the world -- except those nations that the Western nations continually bomb decade after decade. Also interesting to note that every president that has challenged their power has been the target of assassination -- usually successfully, Jackson being the exception who survived the assassination attempt. The only successful killing of a central banker was Hamilton. The deaths of Lincoln, Garfield, and Kennedy are all linked to the attempts to circumvent the Rothschild's monopoly on money. Perhaps even the unsuccessful assassination of Reagan was linked to his plans to change the economic policy of the US. I think it is fair to say, that today's government representatives are all kept in line by this threat to their lives and their pockets. The Rothschilds are the de facto rulers of the world, and if you really look at the history, I think you will find that all these supposed 'mistakes' our government is making are really successes for totalitarian rule by the banking cartels under the thumb of the Rothschilds.

Oh, yeah, I forgot Squeaky Fromme's assassination attempt on Ford, and about 2 weeks later Sara Jane Moore's assassination attempt. Interesting that the vice-president was none other than Nelson Rockefeller (the Rockefellers and Rothschilds are long time partners in the banker's cabal) who was appointed by Ford (neither Ford nor Rockefeller had been elected to the Executive office). Had either attempt succeeded, we would have had a Rockefeller as president. Perhaps the whole Watergate fiasco was just an attempt to get the Rockefellers into the presidency. Coincidence? ;-)

This quote is false. The book does not contain it.

Thanks, Frank.  You are right, the source is incorrect (even though it is declared as a reference in many other places).  The quote is actually from "Great Fortunes from Railroads", 1910, p.183.  The source has been updated.
