Who Is Running the US?


Some people think the US president is running the show, but he is simply a representative of the people who selected him for the office (and these people are not necessarily the voters).  The real power lies in the hands of men who operate quietly behind the scenes, the shadow government.

The original plan for distributed power in the US
Originally, when the USA was established in 1776, power was mainly in the hands of the individual 13 colonies or states.  At the start the USA was similar to the European Union today.  Each state had its own laws and its own budget.  The national or federal government was supposed to be very limited in power, and so were banks.

The First Bank of the United States was a bank chartered by Congress on February 25, 1791. The charter was for 20 years. The Bank was created to handle the financial needs and requirements of the central government of the newly formed United States, which had previously been thirteen individuals colonies with their own banks, currencies, and financial institutions and policies.

In the last decade of the eighteenth century the United States had just three banks but more than fifty different currencies in circulation: English, Spanish, French, Portuguese coinage, script issued by states, cities, backwood stores, and big city enterprises. The values of these currencies were wildly unstable, thereby making it a paradise for politically indifferent currency speculators who thrive on uncertainty. In addition, the value and exchange rate was almost always outdated or unknown by the party agreeing to receive it, especially the further it moved away from the coast; and, thanks to distances, primitive roads, and absence of communications technology, values were not only unknown but unknowable as well.

Supporters of the bank argued that if the nation was to grow and to prosper, it needed a universally accepted standard coinage and this would best be provided by a United States Mint, aided and supported by a national bank and an excise tax.

The 1809 the Debate Over The Recharter Of The Bank Bill
In 1809, in the Debate Over The Recharter Of The Bank Bill, Thomas Jefferson said, "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies . . . If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] . . . will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered . . . The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

Independent Treasury System
The Independent Treasury System was a system for the retaining of government funds in the United States Treasury and its subtreasuries, independently of the national banking and financial systems. In one form or another, it existed from the 1840s to 1921.

The Panic of 1907, however, finally revealed the inability of the system to stabilize the money market; agitation for a more effective banking system led to the passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913. Government funds were gradually transferred from subtreasuries to district banks, and an act of Congress in 1920 mandated the closing of the last subtreasuries in the following year, thus bringing the Independent Treasury System to an end.

Privatization of the US Treasury Department
The Independent Treasury Act of 1920 turned the treasury department over to a private corporation, which actually became a monopolistic cartel, the Federal Reserve and their agents. 

Change after the 1929 Stock Market Crash
After the stock market crash of 1929, a lot of people went into debt or went bankrupt.  Many banks failed too, and many people lost their life savings.  Soon, 25% of the US workforce was unemployed, and drastic measures were needed to help the people.  State governments in the US and national governments in Europe were running out of money.

Golden opportunity for rich bankers

The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender. (Proverbs 22:7)

Rich bankers took this opportunity to quietly gain control of the US government.  In 1930 the governments of U.S., Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, etc. met to discuss the Great Depression that was spreading all over America and Europe.  The individual US states were represented as a whole, not separately.

The International Bankers told these various countries that they were now in a state of bankruptcy. The countries had been taken over by the creditor/bankers. And there was no choice, but for all these participating countries to declare bankruptcy. If they didn't agree to declare bankruptcy, the bankers threatened to collapse the economies.

So all the countries involved agreed, because they realized that the International bankers had them by the throat. If they didn't agree, there would be chaos and/or revolution.

The countries therefore agreed that over a period of several years that they would pass statutes and legislation for the implementation of the bankruptcy in favor of the international bankers.

Under the doctrine of Parens Patriae, "Government As Parent", as a result of the manipulated bankruptcy of the United States of America in 1930, ALL the assets of the American people, their person, and of the country itself were held by the Depository Trust Corporation at 55 Water Street, NY, NY, secured by Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Commercial Liens, which are then monetized as "debt money" by the Federal Reserve.  At that point the individual US states lost their real power.

Under the umbrella of the Depository Trust Corporation lie the following:

  • The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (CEDE - The unknown 20 trillion dollar company)

  • The Federal Reserve Corporation

  • The American Bar Association, the legal arm of the banking interests, and

  • The Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the system's collection agency.

Well kept secret ownership
The bulk of the ownership of the Federal Reserve System, a very well kept secret from the American Citizen, is held by these banking interests, and NONE is held by the United States Treasury:

  • Rothschild Bank of London

  • Rothschild Bank of Berlin

  • Warburg Bank of Hamburg

  • Warburg Bank of Amsterdam

  • Lazard Brothers of Paris

  • Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy

  • Chase Manhattan Bank of New York

  • Goldman, Sachs of New York

  • Lehman Brothers of New York

  • Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York

The golden rule: 
"The man with the gold makes the rules."

Today, the US Federal Reserve is at the root of most of the present statutory regulations or "laws" of the US and controls and regulates virtually all aspects of human activity in the United States.  Basically, the Federal Reserve is the "STATE" of the United States.

Who controls the media in the US and around the world?
The men who own the media and the news you watch are the rich bankers who make up the Federal Reserve.  Very convenient, right?

Who controls the US legal system?
All US law is private law, written by The National Law Institute, Law Professors, and the Bar Association.  These institutions basically follow the Hague or the United Nations treaties, which are controlled by rich international bankers.  Thus, they effectively control all three branches of the  US government - the executive branch (the president), the legislative branch (Congress, i.e., the Senate and the House of Representatives) and the judicial branch.  They also control the military, the education system, real estate, the printing of money and almost every activity requiring government involvement.

Who is behind the war in Iraq?
Remember the movie Star Wars?  Chancellor Palpatine was secretly running the show from behind the scenes on both sides of the war between the Republic and the Separatists.  Now think about Iraq.  If most of the world is controlled by a few rich bankers, then what are they up to? Think about it.
