“When for example the organizer of the peace demonstrations, Lars Mährholz, says—in a speech that you can find on YouTube—that all world wars within the last hundred years, all major problems of humanity have their roots—really all, worldwide—at the American Federal Reserve Bank, then in these circles he’s alluding to a Jewish world conspiracy.
This means that today these kinds of Nazis or anti-Semites don’t say ‘we doubt that six million Jews have been killed by the Nazis, by Germany,’ but they’re hinting and saying ‘east coast’ or they say ‘the FED is behind it.’ And on these sites you always find anti-Semitic caricatures, hate speech against the Rothschilds, and whatever.”
Interestingly, it’s Jutta Ditfurth whose political convictions have a striking resemblance to those of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels, as Oliver Janich pointed out. Nevertheless, it’s her who accuses the demonstrators on the Monday demonstrations of being anti-Semitic and radical right-wing—without providing solid evidence. She merely refers to the criticism of the Federal Reserve and alleged anti-Semitic caricatures on unnamed websites. It’s true that in the Third Reich criticism of banks usually went hand in hand with the demonization of Judaism, and certainly there are anti-Semites today who speak out against the Federal Reserve. However, you can easily verify that the world’s biggest alternative news sites today do not spread anti-Semitism and often mention explicitly that every form of xenophobia should not be tolerated.
Here is an excerpt from Alex Jones’s radio show—which influences alternative media around the world and is also very critical of the Federal Reserve—to give an example of the street-wise and discerning attitude of the truther scene and the majority of the people on the Monday demonstrations. In this excerpt, Alex replies to a statement from a caller who believes in a Jewish world conspiracy.
Caller: We’re in a depression, uh, our economy is crumbling, [..] Goldman Sachs, Bear Stearns, the Rothschilds, and other greedy and evil international Jewish bankers on Wall Street have destroyed our economy. […]
Alex: Let me ask you a question. From your perspective, should the Jews be gotten rid of?
Caller: Yes, they should. In every country…
Alex: Alright, I’m gonna stop you right there. […] I am Jewish. Now I’m not, but if you talk like that, you wanna kill the Jews, you gonna have to kill me, OK? […] And if you say that the Hispanics were the devil and have to be killed or black people […] or white people […], you gotta go through me, OK? I mean, you just said you wanna murder millions of people, unbelievable.
Neither Alex Jones nor the majority of the truth movement is anti-Semitic. The criticism of the FED and the monetary system, however, remains. The main issue here is that we currently are confronted with a state-enforced monopoly on the creation of money, while the big private banks are de facto pulling the strings. Within the framework of this system, where money is being created out of thin air and loaned out on interest, it’s mathematically inevitable that the debt around the world perpetually increases, making it impossible to pay back the debt. All the austerity measures that we can see today are thus nothing more than a racket. The profiteers of austerity are those who in times of crises buy up physical wealth for pennies on the dollar and those who consolidate their control over the populations through increasingly rigid laws and regulations.
Apart from accusations of anti-Semitism there haven’t been a lot of reactions from the mainstream to the Monday demonstrations. This is probably due to the fact that the presstitutes attached to the mainstream talking points are unable to grasp the issues that are being brought up by the demonstrators. They will probably soon start to say that the FED is not a private bank as is claimed by the demonstrators. But who owns the FED really? On the official website it says that the FED is “not ‘owned’ by anyone and is not a private, profit-making institution.” However, this is misleading because more than 8,000 private and central banks own stock of the FED. But what may look like a very diversified ownership is in fact rather centralized, considering how intimately connected especially the major stock owners are, as has been pointed out in a study at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich in 2011. It reveals that a core group of 147 companies owns approximately 40% of all wealth in the world. 75% of these companies are banks.
Representatives of the largest of these banks met in secret on Jeckyll Island to lay the foundation for the Federal Reserve System. Through the enactment of the Federal Reserve Act, which was passed by the US Congress in 1913, the power to create money was essentially taken away from the state and given into the hands of the Federal Reserve. Frank A. Vanderlip, one of the attendees at the meeting on Jeckyll Island, would later write, “I do not feel it is any exaggeration to speak of our secret expedition to Jeckyll Island as the occasion of the actual conception of what eventually became the Federal Reserve System. […] If it were to be exposed publicly that our particular group had gotten together and written a banking bill, that bill would have no chance whatever of passage by Congress.” Publicly, many of the co-conspirators denounced the new banking bill to create the impression that it would harm the big banks and benefit the guy on the street. The bankers would also have Carter Glass and Robert Owen from the Democratic Party support the bill to make it look like the party of the working class is in favor of it.
The big banks who created the Federal Reserve don’t officially control it—in fact, legislators in the US could even abolish the FED—yet through their control of key positions within the hierarchy of the political and banking system they effectively control the creation of currency through the Federal Reserve. This also explains why certain banks are “too big to fail” and saved by the taxpayers. The fox is in charge of the hen house. Mainstream journalists will probably soon say that the US president appoints the chairman of the FED, which would prove that the Federal Reserve is not being controlled by the big banks. However, this leaves aside the fact that the president can only rule by the grace of said banks. No candidate, whether Democrat or Republican, enters any influential position if he doesn’t act according to what is being dictated by the banks. Alex Jones has proven this point impressively in his documentary The Obama Deception. The last US president who actively threatened the power monopoly of the Federal Reserve was John F. Kennedy. Less than six months after he had signed Executive Order 11110 to strip the Federal Reserve of its power he would be killed. Lee Harvey Oswald would be presented as the assassin, even though the evidence clearly contradicts this account.
The monopolistic power of the big banks behind the Federal Reserve was described in no uncertain terms by Woodrow Wilson, who served as president of the United States when the Federal Reserve was created. In The New Freedom Wilson admitted the devastating consequences of the creation of the Federal Reserve:
