The United States fought the American Revolution primarily over King George III's Currency act, which forced the colonists to conduct their business only using printed bank notes borrowed from the Bank of England at interest.

After the revolution, the new United States adopted a radically different economic system in which the government issued its own value-based money, so that private banks like the Bank of England were not siphoning off the wealth of the people through interest-bearing bank notes.

But bankers are nothing if not dedicated to their schemes to acquire your wealth, and know full well how easy it is to corrupt a nation's leaders.

Just one year after Mayer Amschel Rothschild had uttered his infamous "Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws", the bankers succeeded in setting up a new Private Central Bank called the First Bank of the United States, largely through the efforts of the Rothschild's chief US supporter, Alexander Hamilton.

Very illuminating video that distills the Truth of this fake printed money and usury system to appropriate the wealth & economic efforts of the little people and to enslave the masses to never ending debt respectively.
However, I doubt this (now global) central banking monster can ever be effectively eradicated because the very people themselves being enslaved, also pander to Mammon.

My neighbor who saw this same video often rails against the evil Banksters and the politicians in bed with them, but within the same breath he will proudly praise his daughter who managed to get a job in a Big Banking corporation, and thereby earn big bucks working for these Financial Priesthood. Guess he is also eagerly looking forward to buying a new Chrysler with the increased stipend he gets from his daughter. lol.

Yes - All Wars may be Bankers' Wars, but until the little people themselves pray to a different religion, then nothing will change. Fathers (of all the little people) will encourage their daughters to join with Mammon and Mothers will (stupidly) encourage their Sons to fight in pointless wars for their "Country" or "Democracy" or "Freedom" of the little people.

Today is July 13, 2020, and the USA's horrific wars for profit have been raging nonstop. It's the number ONE atrocity to the American people, our biggest threat is our own military madness. Yet the people are successfully manipulated by political distractions such as sex scandals, "terrorist" attacks which were all merely reactions to our wars, and a virus pandemic caused by the continued destruction to Earth through the biggest polluter on Earth: the US Military.

I do not really know where to stand in all this. I fully agree that the private central banking system and the finical world are the main cause of our societies pain. Unfortunately the global warming discussion was put onto the table. Although i cannot disagree that global warming is a fantastic opportunity for governments to impose more taxes and control over its citizens, the fact that people are still denying in the comments that co2 has been driving temperature changes throughout history is scary. Once again, i fully understand the purpose of this video, but going has far as to question even natural events (provoke by the human in that case) is going too far on this crusades of yours against central bankers...

I always liked the analogy that there was this grove of apple trees. Everyone had always loved to gather them when in season. Then one season there was a fence with a sign that said BOB'S Apples $1.00. Now bob was nice as he would let you pick them apples for which he would give you some money to buy you some apples. We cant do crap to Bob cuz he has people that will kill you if you try and take them apples without paying. Poor us?

It was about money and who controls it. The freemasons had not been completely inssurected during the revolutionary war, but was pretty badly infected by the time the US central bank charter was up for renewal. The rothchilds eventually bought off the higher freemasonic members in England where they are headquartered and then executed their plan to clandestinely occupy the high political and financial offices of the US. hoping to avoid war. After the Jackson presidency the freemasons knew they had to have the POTUS. Freemasonry is a completely jewish owned, clandestine group and is pretty much the cia, mi5/6, mossad. The coup was complete after the "federal" reserve act was passed. The war of 1812 most certainly was about money and those who control or want to control it. Who controls money? The bankers. All wars are bankers wars.

Immediately jumps with broad generalizations with very little evidence. For example,Currency Act caused the Revolutionary War. It's way more complicated than that. Plus the idea of he Currency Act, was just a natural consequece of global trade. It allowed for paper money to be legal tender for payments of goods and services. Considering back then gold had to be shipped via ships it made for faster payment. Yes, the colonies were not allowed to print their money because they were still English territory. This process was not disagreeable.

What was though was lack of representation from the colonies. No one from the American colonial government had a say in interest rates or taxation. Allowing the colonies to be leeched of to continue the English war campaign against France.

This documentary will tremendously open your mind to the possibilities of war. I cannot really say that I one hundred
percent believe everything in the documentary is true, but based on the
evidences given, the information that you’ll digest should be mind-blowing.

For the situation of China right now, they’re
the second largest economy in the world and one of the biggest threat to the
United States of America. China is currently claiming seas in Asia which is in
violation of maritime laws according to the UN. My theory is that the United
States which is not currently occupied in the disputes between the countries
(China, Vietnam, and the Philippines) will take action in thrashing China’s
economy. Moreover, considering good historical relations between the Philippines
(One of the main countries majorly affected in the takeover of China in several
seas) and the United States, the US will help the Philippines start a war in
which it will help decrease the wealth of China. With this, the Philippines
will be further destroyed and owe more debts to the United States.

The professor F who criticizes Rivero has got a point. There are indeed oversimplifications in the account and some false rumours. But the real truth is even worse than Rivero believes. The elites, for whom the bankers are the middlemen, are nearly always on both sides. Lincoln and FDR were their men too. The coup attempt against FDR probably was intended to strengthen him.

Totally agree..except for the War of 1812 rewrite. Actually, Madison invaded Canada boasting that it was theirs for the taking. US atrocities turned a sympathetic majority into patriots joining Tecumseh's indians and Briish regulars and militia to successfully drive them out of Canada and all threatening nearby US garrisons in the bargain. The only losers were the Indians who were abandoned to the genocide that followed everywhere west of the Mississippi valley
when the remaining protecting British garrisons there were withdrwan to appease America for good trade and banking relations .
In fact, it was the end of the protection Britain had promised them at the end of the 7 year Indian war that was the real cause of the revolution. The elite and bankers had gotten rich on stolen Indian land in the 13 colonies and beyond until then. They were losing until Thomas Payne roused the masses to their cause with democratic reasons.
The elite and their bankers have been spilling the masses blood ever since pretending they were just trying to bring democracy to their enemies deprived people.

Bankers bridge the financial gap. Similar to the loan purchase of a flat or wheels; it provides the ability to use resources that you still do not possess but are willing to work for in the next few years by becoming productive or by wealth creation.

As a university professor who has a PhD in Global Affairs with a specialization in development and international political economy, a masters in Law, and a Bachelors in political science and philosophy about 75 percent of this documentary is misleading and most of it has poor academic scholarship and empirically driven data.

Woodrow Wilson for example took much pride in the creation of the Federal Reserve System and also the quote used in the documentary is fabricated with no historical proof. One must study merchant capitalism and the emergence of capitalism in the 17-18th centuries to understand the monetary system of the time. Much of the cause of war in the US Colonies was a result from the debts England incurred from the East India Company trickled down via taxes and interests. The non-aristocratic banking regimes where separate from the new financial capitalist regimes that baled a more parliamentary system of governance. The information is portrayed with a monolithic conspiracy when it was actually more layered. E.G, read Karl Polyani onward.

Many causes of war cannot be blamed solely on bankers it is much more complicated than that - even if they most benefit from "sovereign debt". Debt, banking, and economics are all treated in quiet an elementary way in the documentary with the ambition for more reaction on the half of the viewer than thoughtful critique. This misinformation actually discredits the thesis of a more inclusive economic system that does not externalize costs and risks to the citizen hence our modern banking and fictionalization system.

Also, ... the world is not "cooling". Come on

Facts in this are pretty much accurate. I do note the people below pontificating irrelevant bull**** about what their opinion is, or disagreeing on minor issues using name calling and ignorance based ad hom.

Only a fool doesnt get the fact that at least 3 presidents have been whacked by the bankers, for obvious reasons. There is no greater motive than the right to create money out of nothing for a nation, and charge them interest for it.

"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin.
The Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them,
but leave them the power to create deposits,
and with the flick of the pen they will
create enough deposits to buy it back again.
However, take it away from them, and
all the great fortunes like mine
will disappear and they ought to disappear, for
this would be a happier and better world to live in.
But, if you wish to remain the slaves of Bankers
and pay the cost of your own slavery,
let them continue to create deposits."
Josiah Stamp - former head of the Bank of England.

Bankers are going to take your sovereignty, while the fools still argue against the facts of FIAT banking.

"This regionalization is in keeping with the Tri-Lateral Plan which calls for a gradual convergence of East and West, ultimately leading toward the goal of one world government. National sovereignty is no longer a viable concept."
— Zbigniew Brzezinski

I liked most of this guys research and it confirms allot of my own study in this area but one thing that he didn't mention was that the principle of not having debt comes directly from the bible and in particular the Old Testament that comes from Jewish teaching. EG "Proberbs 22:7 borrower is slave to the lender" Deuteronomy 8:18 "God gives us the power to create wealth" Proverbs 10:22 blessing of the LORD creates wealth and he adds no sorrow with it. And this one that would fix the worlds problems and break the control of central banks!

Deuteronomy 15:1 "At the end of every seventh years you must cancel the debts of everyone who owes you money.

It's time for war to destroy the true enemy. The money changers of old described in scripture are alive and thriving as they did in the past. Zionism is structured to destroy the goyim; to enslaves and create hatred so there is a reason for war. The Rothschilds funded WW2 on both sides then provided the money to rebuild. These and their barbaric prostitutes are what form "civilization".

re: The Fed successfully defended itself from FOIA because it's a private corporation. False, it's a special US Govt-Chartered quasi-private corp with the Board of Directors (Governors) appointed by the President. (most corps are chartered by one or more of 50 states) The 12 Branches operate in some sense as private corps, costs self-funding via profits not govt revenue, but all net profits after expenses are returned to the Treasury, after a dividend is paid to member commercial banks, a payment which apparently offsets interest and fees charged to such banks.

The following is about CONCEALMENT and unjust enrichment after a decade of PRIVATE bank fraud by CEOs looting their own corporations. The *institutions* were bailed out -- a pragmatic matter that could have been done by FDIC, with appropriate investigations and punishment suggested. The executives were not investigated nor prosecuted. Most were allowed to keep all past profits and bonuses. In some cases, the main "looters" had already resigned and turned the bank over to new executives. (The fraud was (imo) not really a good justification to allow the entire institutional edifice to collapse, and crash all interconnected business, no more than if executives looted a hospital would it make sense to fire all staff and shut down operations, if the hospital could be bailed out.)

BLOOMBERG: Secret Fed Loans Gave Banks $13 Billion Undisclosed to Congress

The Federal Reserve and the big banks fought for more than two years to keep details of the largest bailout in U.S. history a secret. Now, the rest of the world can see what it was missing.

The Fed didn’t tell anyone which banks were in trouble so deep they required a combined $1.2 trillion on Dec. 5, 2008, their single neediest day. Bankers didn’t mention that they took tens of billions of dollars in emergency loans at the same time they were assuring investors their firms were healthy. And no one calculated until now that banks reaped an estimated $13 billion of income by taking advantage of the Fed’s below-market rates, Bloomberg Markets magazine reports in its January issue.

Saved by the bailout, bankers lobbied against government regulations, a job made easier by the Fed, which never disclosed the details of the rescue to lawmakers even as Congress doled out more money and debated new rules aimed at preventing the next collapse.

A fresh narrative of the financial crisis of 2007 to 2009 emerges from 29,000 pages of Fed documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act and central bank records of more than 21,000 transactions. While Fed officials say that almost all of the loans were repaid and there have been no losses, details suggest taxpayers [e.g. consumers, citizens, investors .. since the Fed does not collect taxes] paid a price beyond dollars as the secret funding helped preserve a broken status quo and enabled the biggest banks to grow even bigger.

Court Orders Fed to Disclose Emergency Bank Loans (Update2)

Aug. 25 (Bloomberg) -- The Federal Reserve must for the first time identify the companies in its emergency lending programs after losing a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

Manhattan Chief U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska ruled against the central bank yesterday, rejecting the argument that loan records aren’t covered by the law because their disclosure would harm borrowers’ competitive positions.
Note: Did the defense claim they were NOT an agency of Govt and the FOIA did not apply? Not according to the Plaintiffs.

This supports my opinion that each side of every argument will always have certain perceived flaws observed by the other side. No one has it 100% for everyone, and every information/media source has its biases, from FOX to CNN. It's obvious that something's happening with climate change, but those on the right like to manipulate the facts for the sake of their love of fossil fuels, by hiding "climate change" behind a global conspiracy of left wing dominance. Unfortunately, the powers that be tend to support and infiltrate these grass roots movements into believing that the only way to correct these problems is to hand your independence over to the United Nations or some one world government, like we did with the WTO, IMF and World Bank, NAFTA, etc. That's worked out well, hasn't it? Yeah, right. But you keep voting for these Democrats and Republicans because each ticket has the complete and perfect ideology for you. Well, that's BS. Rarely do I find a candidate that's on point with me on every single issue they run on. It's up to me to disseminate the information and choose the best solutions coming from ALL sides and make as informed a decision as I possibly can. I think this is an excellent documentary that quickly and concisely explains the fraud of the banks and the results of their actions. Any opinions from the narrator on any other issue need to be compartmentalized for a later debate, but on the banking issue, he's dead on. When the extreme right and extreme left finally realize their arguments are very similar in many ways, then maybe we can effect some change. To close out an argument on one issue because of another random statement of "opinion", is neither intelligent nor productive. Stop hiding behind your political and religious dogma and start making decisions on your own. The most important thing we can possibly do with our minds, that most of you have forgotten, is to keep them open. I do not have any respect left for the Republican party and their corporate fascist methods, but recently the Democrats are filled with the same amount of hot air as the rest. If they had their way, they'd be giving us the same. It's just being sold differently. So keep watching these documentaries, Keep commenting and criticizing, and when you're done, keep repeating History. Go home, shout we are the 99% for a weekend or two, act like an Anarchist, and when that gets boring, go back to finger f#@king your electronic ear dildos, putting your pretty dog pictures up on Face Book, while your money rots in those bank accounts that your too lazy to close.

Rothschild was an opportunist but he did not propose the one currency for Europe. WWI was so crushing as had been all the other European wars so French FM Aristide Briand first suggested a single trading bloc with a single currency in 1929. Finally after the horrors of WWII Jean Monnet initiated the plan in 1945 He was a member of the French planning commission for economic reconstruction. Having the Euro is good, it's about trade and balancing the status quo of people in Europe BUT the lovers of the USD hate the Euro and we are suffering from a currency war because of that -- charging interest is criminal - perhaps it has always been -

Except for the global cooling comments, the documentary is fundamentally bang on regarding human history in the last couple of hundred years.. In my opinion, going back to a gold, or silver standard does not solve the problem, because this is how they got control over the monetary system to begin with. Money should be based upon one's labor, created from nothing. (fiat currency) For this reason, there is no need to pay interest because no one put anything of value on the line to back it.(highly effiicient, no free lunch) The solution lies in getting rid of usury. (interest) The federal reserve in the U.S collects 1 trillion dollars a year to pay the interest on the American debt that they created out of thin air, to line their pockets. Since banks, and corporations runs the world, (admitted in the doc) national distinction will soon be extinct. (except of course when they wish to rally the people to fight a war for banking, and corporate purposes)
