Greedy resource seizure put England into desperate financial straits. From 1642 to 1649, goldsmiths and successful merchants helped finance the English Revolution as well as Oliver Cromwell’s pursuit and execution of King Charles. The government of King William III (reigned from February 13, 1689 to March 8, 1702) was in desperate need of money. William Patterson, seeing an exploitive opportunity, assembled a cartel of wealthy men who agreed to loan the king £1.2 million on the condition that the king pay 8% interest per year. Additionally, the cartel wanted the king to grant a charter creating The Bank of England (established July 27, 1694) which would give the cartel the “sole and exclusive right” to issue notes unprotected by bank assets. [1]


Low-risk loans, used for war, were secured by taxes which created abject poverty for the majority of Britain’s citizens. Within four short years, the national debt had increased ten times. Britain continued to incur huge war debts during the 1700s. Meanwhile, America, Britain’s prosperous colony, was printing debt-free money. Britain then passed the Currency Act of 1764 which deliberately resulted in depression and severe unemployment in America. [2]

Ashkenazi Jews of the Germanic states, not legal citizens, with surnames, adopted names associated with their houses or shops. People can trace the Rothschild name back to the ancestor, Izaak, son of Elchanan as noted on his tombstone. He lived in the Frankfurt ghetto in a house at the more affluent end of Judengasse (Jews’ Alley), from which he had derived his name, zum roten Schild (at the sign of the red shield). The family retained the name when they relocated, years later, to another house, the Hinterpfann. They shared the dark and dreary three-story, 900 square feet house with the Bauer family, along with their respective businesses.

Mayer Amschel Rothschild was born in that dilapidated tenement on February 23, 1744 in the Jewish ghetto, home to about 2,500 Jews. He was the fourth of eight children of Schönche Lechnich and Amschel Moses Rothschild, a moneychanger and traveling merchant who, later accompanied by the very astute Mayer, often sold beads and trinkets to the servants at the castle of the Landgrave (Landlord). Amschel sent Mayer, his brightest child, to the Yeshiva at Fürth near Nürnberg to become a rabbi. Mayer’s father died on October 6, 1755 during a smallpox epidemic in the overcrowded ghetto. His mother died on June 29, 1756. In 1757, relatives helped Mayer secure an apprenticeship under Wolf Jacob Oppenheimer, at the Jewish banking house started by Simon Wolf Oppenheimer in Hannover,


In 1770, Mayer Amschel Rothschild married Gutele Schnapper. In that same year, he retained Jewish-born, Adam Weishaupt, an apostate Jesuit-trained professor of canon law, to revise and modernize Illuminism, the worship of Satan, with the objective of world domination and the imposition of  the Luciferian ideology “upon what would remain of the human race” after a final orchestrated social-cataclysm. [4] In 1773, Mayer summoned twelve wealthy men to Frankfort and asked them to pool their resources, then presented the 25-point plan that would enable them to gain control of the wealth, natural resources and manpower of the entire world. [5]

Those 25 points are:

1. Use violence and terrorism rather than academic discussions.

2. Preach “Liberalism” to usurp political power.

3. Initiate class warfare.  

4. Politicians must be cunning and deceptive – any moral code leaves a politician vulnerable.   

5. Dismantle “existing forces of order and regulation.” Reconstruct all existing institutions.”

6. Remain invisible until the very moment when it has gained such strength that no cunning or force can undermine it.

7. Use Mob Psychology to control the masses. “Without absolute despotism one cannot rule efficiently.”

8. Advocate the use of alcoholic liquors, drugs, moral corruption and all forms of vice, used systematically by “agenteurs” to corrupt the youth.

9. Seize properties by any means to secure submission and sovereignty.

10. Foment wars and control the peace conferences so that neither of the combatants gains territory placing them further in debt and therefore into our power.

11. Choose candidates for public office who will be “servile and obedient to our commands, so they may be readily used as pawns in our game.”

12. Use the Press for propaganda to control all outlets of public information, while remaining in the shadows, clear of blame.

13. Make the masses believe they had been the prey of criminals. Then restore order to appear as the saviors.

14. Create financial panics. Use hunger to control to subjugate the masses.

15. Infiltrate Freemasonry to take advantage of the Grand Orient Lodges to cloak the true nature of their work in philanthropy. Spread their atheistic-materialistic ideology amongst the "Goyim" (gentiles).

16. When the hour strikes for our sovereign lord of the entire World to be crowned, their influence will banish everything that might stand in his way.

17. Use systematic deception, high-sounding phrases and popular slogans. “The opposite of what has been promised can always be done afterwards... That is of no consequence.”

18. A Reign of Terror is the most economical way to bring about speedy subjection.

19. Masquerade as political, financial and economic advisers to carry out our mandates with Diplomacy and without fear of exposing “the secret power behind national and international affairs.”

20. Ultimate world government is the goal. It will be necessary to establish huge monopolies, so even the largest fortunes of the Goyim will depend on us to such an extent that they will go to the bottom together with the credit of their governments on the day after the great political smash.”  

21. Use economic warfare. Rob the "Goyim" of their landed properties and industries with a combination of high taxes and unfair competition.

22. “Make the 'Goyim' destroy each other so there will only be the proletariat left in the world, with a few millionaires devoted to our cause, and sufficient police and soldiers to protect our interest.”

23. Call it The New Order. Appoint a Dictator.

24. Fool, bemuse and corrupt the younger members of society by teaching them theories and principles we know to be false.

25 Twist national and international laws into a contradiction which first masks the law and afterwards hides it altogether. Substitute arbitration for law. [6]


Weishaupt, financed by Rothschild, had begun infiltrating the well-established Continental Order of Freemasons with this satanical doctrine. Weishaupt recruited 2,000 agents, “the most intelligent men in the field of arts and letters, education, science, finance, and industry.” Weishaupt instructed these well-paid individuals on the best methods of bribing, manipulating and controlling people and the press. [7]


Weishaupt reorganized the Illuminati by May 1, 1776. The word Illuminati, derived from Lucifer, means “holder of the light.” The plan deceptively uses the phrase “peace on earth” and necessitates the destruction of all existing governments and religions through a process of “dividing the masses into opposing camps in ever increasing numbers on political, social, economic, and other issues.” People would “fight and weaken themselves and gradually destroy national governments and religious institutions.” [8]


Mayer and Gutele had five daughters and five sons. The sons were well-tutored in the ‘family business’ and “were imbued with the same spirit of cunning and conquest.” Ultimately, Mayer’s sons established or were positioned in banks in key European locations: Amschel Mayer (1773-1855) in Frankfort, Salomon Mayer (1774-1855) in Vienna, James Mayer (1792-1868) in Paris, Kalmann Mayer (1788-1855) in Naples and Nathan Mayer (1777-1836), the most gifted, in London, where he founded the Rothschild banking dynasty. Nathan created a system of world-wide debits and credits and a new technique for “floating international loans.” [9] Kalmann (Karl) became head of the occult group, the Alta Vendita. [10]


The sons were “wizards” of finance and “fiendish calculators” who were motivated by a “demonic drive” to succeed in their secret undertakings. Regularly, Mayer recited from the Talmud while his entire family sat raptly attentive. They courted no friendships but used people as temporary steppingstones in furthering political alliances that were profit-motivated. Marriages, if not near incestuous, were arranged with the intent of preserving the Rothschild fortune. Later, as the Rothschilds gained respectability, though some viewed them as uncouth, they intermarried within other banking families. In 1785, Mayer moved his family into a five story house at 148 Judengasse, Frankfurt. The Schiff family, also bankers, shared this home. Jacob Schiff married Soloman’s daughter.[11]


Mayer had ingratiated himself to the ‘right people’ and in 1769, became “a court agent for Prince William IX of Hesse-Kassel, who was the grandson of George II of England, a cousin to George III, a nephew of the King of Denmark, and a brother- in-law to the King of Sweden. Before long, the House of Rothschild became the go between for big Frankfurt bankers like the Bethmann Brothers, and Rueppell & Harnier.” [12] Prince William, an extremely successful human flesh dealer and Rothschild, his agent, rented out troops to Europe’s royal families. A favorite customer, the British government, needed 16,800 Hessian soldiers for which they paid the equivalent of $3 million. But, before the soldiers could be paid for their services, William was forced to “flee to Denmark,” leaving the money in Mayer’s care for “safekeeping.” Mayer viewed this money as a fortuitous “business” opportunity and eventually gave the blood money to Nathan, who by 1809, had set up shop as a London banker. He invested at least 800,000 pounds in “gold from the East India Company.” [13]


Prince William, an early Blackwater-style, rent-a-troop entrepreneur had amassed a huge fortune by the time he died. Apparently, citizens rejected the low slave-soldier wages and resisted recruitment. Hired guns cost more but are not culpable to government, increase enemy body counts (for governments that actually count) and enrich government-friendly corporate cronies, a benefit at election time. Rumsfeld and Franks, early on, reminded Americans that “we don’t do body counts.” [14]


Those Hessian soldiers would be used against the American patriots who were tired of the excessive taxes extracted by the British to pay for their endless wars and decided to expel the British and demand their independence which led to the Revolutionary War. Alexander Hamilton, a Rothschild agent, convinced George Washington to have the Rothschilds finance the war. In 1791, with a big war debt to be paid, Hamilton set up a central bank, owned by the Rothschilds and other foreigners called the First Bank of the United States with a twenty-year charter. Andrew Jackson later referred to them as a den of vipers. [15]


Congress rejected renewal of the charter and the bank was closed on March 4, 1811 which ignited Rothschild’s wrath; he had controlling stock. He declared – “Either the application for renewal of the Charter is granted, or the United States will find itself in a most disastrous war.” He then ordered British troops to “teach these impudent Americans a lesson. Bring them back to Colonial status.” This brought on the War of 1812, our second war with England, which facilitated the re-chartering of the Bank of the United States.

The war raised our national debt from $45 million to $127 million.” [16]


When Nathan Rothschild asked the British Parliament to declare war, the Prime Minister objected. He was assassinated by “a lone gunman” on May 11, 1812. Parliament declared war on June 18, 1812. British troops burned the White House and other government buildings including the one that housed the ratification papers for the U.S. constitution. President Madison, a perceptive politician, proposed the establishment of a second central bank on December 5, 1815 which was created by Congress on January 7, 1817. Nicholas Biddle, a Nathan Rothschild protégé, became the bank’s president in 1822.


Mayer died on September 19, 1812. Through his will, he left one billion franks to his five sons and “business” instructions pertaining to marriage, total family control and absolute secrecy. Rothschild policies include “total ruthlessness in all business dealings.” [17] Everything is shrouded in secrecy; a characteristic they subtly impose on their multitudes of minions who, through careful observation, have discovered that discreetness is much more conducive to their general well-being. Every money-making opportunity is just business – war, terror, genocide, mass public plunder – all disguised with the ‘right rhetoric’ for mass acceptability. The Rothschild family epitomized the phrase ‘international banker.’ There really are evil-doers; they are just not those that have been so publicly targeted!


In January 1814, Nathan had received a lucrative contract with the British government to supply coinage to pay the British troops who were fighting in the European balance-of-power playoff, the Napoleonic War – both sides were financed by the House of Rothschild. From the family’s huge network of cash-carrying couriers, Nathan received ‘prior knowledge’ about the outcome of the Battle of Waterloo. He manipulated “consuls” in the London Stock Exchange to create panic and frenzied selling. He increased his fortune by 6500 times. [18] He seized control the Bank of England and England’s economy. Three years later he orchestrated a cash-coup in France. There would be many staged cash-coups, world-wide, over the years. The Rothschilds withdrew from the limelight and altered their procedures for fleecing individuals and countries. They now “operate through and behind a wide variety of fronts.” [19]


Adherence to the constitution would mean no foreign entanglements – there would be “friendship to all, alliances with none.” There would be no income tax, no inflation or national debt. If properly run, as the constitution dictates, our God-given personal freedoms would allow everyone to retain the fruits of their labor, leading to independence and prosperity. Big European banks viewed America’s constitution which authorized “no debt” money as a “major threat to their plans.” The possibility of individual prosperity and independence would attract the intelligence and wealth “of all countries.” Hence, according to the Illuminati agenda, America had to be destroyed. [20]


With such freedom to prosper, the European bankers decided that the “business connection” was “America’s Achilles’ heel.” The Rothschild House, through their Warburg-Schiff connection, financed Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Empire, Edward Harriman (railroads) and Andrew Carnegie (steel). These American business magnates would buy and control politicians. To facilitate the progress of “their American operations,” and the re-establishment of a central bank the Rothschilds sent one of their top agents, Paul Moritz Warburg, to New York in 1902 to take charge of their assault. Along with Jacob Schiff, the Rothschild-owned head of Kuhn, Loeb and Company, Warburg managed to create the banking crisis which led to the great cash-coup – the Federal Reserve System, the ultimate American slave master. [21] A majority vote by both the house and the Senate passed the bill right before the Christmas holidays. Those politicans were already managed and complicit. Congress has changed the original bill at least 75 times.
