The refusal of King George to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from clutches of the money manipulators was probably the prime cause of the revolution. – Ben Franklin
Please do not misunderstand nor make excuses for the title of this article. America is under attack, and the middle class is the target of destruction.
The middle class is the central load-bearing column in this nation's foundation. The middle-class funds and defends the law of the land: the US Constitution. And this class of people is entirely responsible for the general product of the nation through educated creativity and labor.
As I have said previously: A nation without a middle class soon becomes a feudal society
Feudalism with banker class controllers is the goal of those who religiously believe they are entitled to the world.
According to Caroll Quigley, author of Tragedy and Hope:
The powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. […]This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent and private meetings and conferences.
Bankers Behind The Curtain Of War.
The Major Wars of the 20th century were impossible without central banking, and it was to the goals of central bankers and those they served who benefitted from these wars – while the people suffered the agony, misery, bloodshed, and lies. The 20th and 21st centuries wars were battles to maintain the US dollar's hegemony and keep central banks in most nations.
Central banking is a parasite that enriches a tiny percentage of the population while enslaving the rest.
The excuses created to get the people behind these wars were lies built on a mountain of propaganda.
Starting with Germany. In reality, Germany's great strength threatened the religion of central banking. The banking-supported controllers decided Germany needed to be not just defeated – but obliterated so Oligarchs and Robber Barons could continue their system of plunder in Europe and the world.
The same bankers funded and supported with intelligence and human resources the scourge of Communism via the Soviet Union and Mao in China – perfecting a system of human slavery that would forever destroy individualism and dash any hopes of a world made better via competition and freedom of people.
Competition is a Sin – John D. Rockefeller
After World War Two, bankers, using the United States Military, enforced the adoption and installation of central banks worldwide. The US was constantly at war, fighting under ridiculous pretenses such as “Making The World Safe For Democracy” (Wilson's reason for getting the US involved in WW1.) These continuous wars were for testing new military technology, draining American fighting-age men, and creating new debt, continuously benefiting the bankers.
JFK Against The Bankers
JFK was not prepared to embroil the US in another foreign war of aggression and resisted pushes from the central bank-controlled military to send troops to fight in Vietnam, just one of the many reasons he later fell victim to the same cabal controlling the world today.
Among numerous reasons for John F. Kennedy's death comes the little-known fact that he, like Lincoln, had created a new United States Note, much like the greenback, and had issued $4 million worth of these notes. The US Note was a note of value and not of debt and would significantly reduce the costs of issuing money while eliminating the constant flow of interest payments to bankers.
The hands of bankers have been behind all the significant events of American history – the terrible events resulting in bloodshed, pain, suffering, and loss of wealth and property.
The Vietnam War was just another way to destroy the US Dollar long-term because so much gold was pledged during Vietnam for wartime financing that inflation, economic turmoil, and military failures forced the US out of the war. After the US left Vietnam, the dollar was fully converted into a fiat, un-backed, paper currency and set on the course for the total devaluation of purchasing power we see today. This was the expected outcome and one of the primary purposes of the war in Vietnam.
And the time has now for the priests of Central Banking to once again introduce a new (and more efficient) form of slavery that will not just surreptitiously steal wealth around the clock but will imprison and lock down people using the invisible force field of the digital gulag.
Project Icebreaker: The Beginning Of A One World Digital Currency System?
In the worst case scenario, though, economic access is the greatest oppressive tool. With CBDCs in place and no physical cash in existence, your savings will never be truly yours and you'll never be able to hold your purchasing power in your hands. The means of exchange would be bottle-necked by the banks, and governments would have the option to freeze your ability to transact. If one day you get angry about a particular government policy and openly call the system corrupt on social media, they can simply shut off your option to transfer your digital money to others until you submit, or die.
Will The Bankers Go To War To Save The Federal Reserve Note
Those in charge of the Federal Reserve and the government that serves them are working to destroy the purchasing power of the US dollar while wiping out the American middle class. But some believe that ultimately the bankers will bring war (yet another) to prop up the dollar and prevent the World's Reserve currency status from being transferred to the Chinese or the BRICS nations whose currencies are vying to become the new US Dollar.
That would be only possible if there were warring factions within the banking houses that control central banking worldwide. The US Dollar destruction is deliberate, as we have pointed out numerous times in previous articles, and – even though debt-based theft currencies always self-destruct, it is still possible to slow down the destruction by reducing the money supply and lowering interest rates to compensate (As will see below, the money supply is increasing and there is more talk of further interest rate hikes.) These actions would reduce the explosive growth of inflation and provide more time to continue dollar dominance.
The dollar's days are ending; this is the plan and has been all along. The only way war will come to the US during the destruction of the dollar is if there is resistance from the people. If there are men in positions of power and influence that can rally the support of the American people around saving the dollar or even converting the debt dollar into a Constitutional dollar, then, for sure, the barbarous bankers descended from Babylon will indeed bring war to the USA.
There Are No Real Markets, Only Rigged Markets.
Remember, the stock market is no longer a mechanism for price discovery. It does not represent buyers and sellers but an entire macrocosm of political interests, each pushing and pulling on the prices behind the scenes.
I offer prices for monitoring your holdings weekly. The stock market trends, however, do not originate from free market buyer-seller interactions but rather from the deliberate decisions of private groups like the Federal Reserve and BlackRock, to name a few.
The collapse of the massive global debt will decide when the market will shake off the chains of the central bankers and discover the value of all things dollar-denominated.
Inflation Continues To Rise
No surprises here – the Federal Reserve continues its money supply creation machine while interest rates continue to rise. According to John Williams at shadowstats.com [emphasis by author]:
Intensifying Risks of a Highly Inflationary, Major U.S. Economic Downturn (Updated April 14th). Given intensifying instabilities in the US Banking System, the Federal Reserve continues to spike systemic liquidity with inflation-driving Money Supply creation, which should continue to exacerbate the price inflation problem. At the same time, the FOMC keeps hiking interest rates in an effort to kill economic activity, which otherwise is neither overheating nor driving the inflation, contrary to the publicly expressed views of the Federal Reserve's Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) and its Chairman. The best bet coming out of all these numbers is for a spike in inflation, eventually much higher than currently headlined, and a deepening economic contraction.
Banks Quietly Being Consolidated
If Regional Banks Continue To Fail, Commercial Real Estate Investors Can Plan On Fewer And More Expensive Loans
The overriding consensus is that the country's regional bank liquidity crisis, though presently stabilized, is far from over. Regional banks are losing deposits to the big banks while attempting to shore up their loan issues, much of which is being blamed on the commercial real estate (CRE) sector.
In the 1980s, there were over 18000 regional and small banks, now it's closer to 5000. This number will continue to fall as more banks fall to the predatory activity of the Federal Reserve – raising rates in high inflation will notably cause banks loaning money to the middle class to become unstable as rates drive out mortgage loan customers.
Banks that fund the middle class and American growth are the target of forced bank consolidation. According to banking expert Robert Hockett, a professor at Cornell Law School, The big national banks are operating in the global capital markets […] A lot of their assets are based on speculation. They're not fueling economic growth. They're not funding new companies. Or farms. You need patient capital for that, and capital at the Big Four (banks) is not patient.
The Federal Reserve continues to talk like the US economy is not in a recession right now, but that is just banker-speak. We are in a recession heading for the worst downturn in US History.
Fed expects banking crisis to cause a recession this year, minutes show.
Middle-Class Under Attack
The middle class is under attack, and even for those used to having enough, the economic pressures are causing problems.
The number of Americans earning over $100,000 who are living paycheck to paycheck is climbing as inflation squeezes households, survey shows.
Some 64% of US consumers were living paycheck to paycheck as of December 2022, a survey by Pymnts.com and Lending Club Corp of almost 4,000 US consumers between December 8 and December 23 found.
Mortgage loans continue to fall, even as temporary interest rates drop, feeding the housing industry's hopes of a turnaround. Housing prices continue to fall, and rising inflation diverts new home payment money to essentials. This trend will continue, and we can expect housing to continue in a downturn for the foreseeable future.
Silver Demand Rising
Demand for silver continues to increase this year. Online sellers of silver and gold are posting signs on their sites stating waiting times are rising.

It is easy, in hindsight, to follow the dots back to the beginning of the United States and show that central banks were at war with colonies and then the United States after that. The war has never ended and continues to rage hot now.
To continue to wage this war, one of the bankers' imperatives has been the control of American spending, especially spending for schools and management of the educational system, while also making possible the funds necessary to consolidate all American media into the hands of those connected to central banking families.
The damage has been done, and most have no idea what happened. People quickly blame politicians and the government structure without seeing the bloody war required to keep this all together for hundreds of years.
The expectation is that inflation will continue to cripple the middle class. At the same time, alternatives to the currency system of financial slavery will be offered that will be said to be better – they will be worse.
Those who see what is happening must educate people around us and prepare for the next battle with the banks. That battle will start with a simple and easy choice – choose central bank digital currencies or a continuation of the inflation and horrific problems it creates.
This is where it gets complicated. We must reject the idea of central banking, raising the call to entrepreneurs and men of courage to come forward and provide a system of money that will ensure privacy and autonomy using competition of currencies while educating the people on how to use systems to grow wealth and independence.
We must end central banking or be slaves forever.
But if you want to continue to be slaves of the banks and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money and control credit. –Josiah Stamp
