Dear Friend of Radio Liberty,
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."
Thomas Jefferson, letter to Col. Charles Yancey, January 6, 1816 
"Everything predicted by the enemies of banks, in the beginning, is now coming to pass. We are to be ruined now by a deluge of bank paper as we were formerly by the old Continental paper."
Master Thoughts of Thomas Jefferson, 1907, p. 169 
"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 them, will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up home- less on the continent their Fathers conquered. . . . I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. . . . The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

"That there is a gigantic combination of the money dealers, a powerful international trust of usurers, asserting a superiority above all jurisdictions, and having for its servants the so-called statesmen and potentates of various nations, who willingly register the decrees for this money power upon the statute-books of the respective states, is a fact that can be sustained by irrebuttable evidence."
M.W. Walbert, The Coming Battle, 1899 
"We are not left to conjecture how the moneyed power, thus organized and with such a weapon in its hands, would be likely to use it. The distress and alarm which pervaded and agitated the whole country when the Bank of the United States waged war upon the people in order to compel them to submit to its demands can not yet be forgotten."
President Jackson's Farewell Address, March 4, 1837 
Why is America changing? Who controls the United States? Why are we losing our freedom? What does the future hold? Thomas Jefferson anticipated the situation that exists today when he wrote:
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects
what never was and never will be." 
I believe that is true. If the American people want to remain free, they must understand the battle that has been waged between the men who control the banking system, and the men who cherish freedom. Who controls the American banking system? Some of the richest men in the world. How did they amass their fortunes? They devised a deceptive system that creates credit via book-keeping entries, and money out of nothing.  What have they done with their wealth? They have purchased the corporations that produce our products, they have bought the media outlets that mold our minds, they have endowed the universities that train our children, and they have financed the politicians that rule our nation. When did the conflict between the bankers and the American people begin? It began shortly after the United States became a nation in 1789, and the final stage of the battle for freedom is being waged today. What is their goal? They want to destroy Christianity, and rule the world.
Thomas Jefferson understood the threat that lay ahead when he wrote:
"Everything predicted by the enemies of banks, in the beginning, is now coming to pass.
We are to be ruined now by a deluge of bank paper, as we were formerly by the old
Continental paper. It is cruel that such revolutions in private fortunes should be at the
mercy of avaricious adventurers, who instead of employing their capital, if any they have,
in manufactures, commerce, and other useful pursuits, make it an instrument to burden
all the interchanges of property with their swindling profits, profits which are the price
of no useful industry of theirs. Prudent men must be on their guard in this game of
Robin's alive, and take care that the spark does not extinguish in their hands. I am an
enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but coin. But our whole country
is so fascinated by this Jack o'lantern wealth, that they will not stop short of its total and
fatal explosion." 
Four years later (in 1819) the banks limited the supply of money and credit, and the American economy collapsed. The same thing happened after Andrew Jackson cancelled the Charter of the Second Bank of the United States, and there have been a number of similar incidents since that time. There was a financial contraction in 1837 because the banks limited the supply of money and credit. There was a similar panic in 1857, in 1873, in 1893, in 1907, in 1920, in 1929, in 1980, in 1987, and in 2000. Eight years later, in October 2008, the major banks and the FED limited access to credit, and precipitated the current economic meltdown. 
Thomas Jefferson opposed Alexander Hamilton's effort to establish the First Bank of the United States because Jefferson suspected England was behind the effort to establish a Central Bank in the United States, and he feared it would eventually control the American government. I believe Thomas Jefferson's assessment of the situation was correct, but he didn't understand the occult force that energized Alexander Hamilton, and the wealthy men who supported him.  Thomas Jefferson continued:
"The scheme is for Congress to incorporate a bank . . . the subscribers may be one, two,
or three or more individuals . . . (many single individuals being able to pay in the five
millions), whereupon this bank oligarchy or monarchy enters the field with ninety
millions of dollars, to direct and control the politics of the nation; and of the influence
of these institutions on our politics, and into what scale it will be thrown we have had
abundant experience. Indeed England herself may be the real subscriber. . . . The truth
is that capital may be produced by industry, and accumulated by economy; but jugglers
only will propose to create it by legerdemain tricks with paper." 
Thomas Jefferson feared the men who controlled the Central Bank would use the wealth they created by "legerdemain tricks" to elect politicians who would "direct and control the politics of the nation," but that didn't happen because Congress didn't renew the Charter of The First Bank of the United States in 1811, and the bank was disbanded.
Thomas Jefferson feared the Central Bank (the swindlers) would enslave the public, so he wrote:
"The overbearing clamor of merchants, speculators and projectors, will drive us before
them with our eyes open, until, as in France, under the Mississippi Bubble, our citizens
will be overtaken with the crush of this baseless fabric, without other satisfaction than
that of execrations on the heads of those functionaries who, from ignorance, pusillanimity
or corruption, have betrayed the fruits of their industry into the hands of projectors and
What was the Mississippi Bubble? It was a short period of stock speculation that took place after an Englishman named John Law convinced Philippe d'Orleans, the regent of France, that he could remedy his financial problems by issuing unbacked paper (fiat) money. John Law established the General Private Bank (a Central Bank) in 1716, and issued paper money that was backed by the French government. What happened? Initially there was a short period of prosperity, but when the price of products increased, John Law was forced to issue additional paper money to maintain the economy. That process was repeated a number of times until John Law's paper money became worthless, and France was forced to return to the use of gold and silver coins as the medium of exchange.
During the early years of the Mississippi Bubble, John Law encouraged the public to invest their new wealth in the Mississippi Company that owned a large tract of land in Louisiana. As a result, the price of the shares increased from 500 livre to 15,000 livre, and some of the initial investors prospered, so many people mortgaged their homes and their businesses because they wanted to become wealthy. What happened? The price of the shares fell to 500 livre, and thousands of people lost their homes and their fortunes. 
The same thing has happened in the United States on many occasions. The FED increased the supply of fiat money and credit that led to the Great Depression, they increased the supply of fiat money and credit that led to the dot-com bubble, and they increased the supply of fiat money and credit that led to the housing bubble that caused the current economic collapse. It's like deja vu all over again. 
Thomas Jefferson anticipated the tragedy that lay ahead when he wrote:
"We are already at ten or twenty times the due quantity of medium; insomuch that no
man knows what his property is now worth, because it is bloating while he is calcul-
ating; and still less what it will be worth when the medium shall be relieved from its
present dropsical state; and that it is a palpable falsehood to say that we can have
specie for our paper whenever demanded." 
The First Bank of the United States (the Central Bank) issued paper money that was valued at ten to twenty times the value of the gold and silver that was held on deposit, and that increased the price of property and other products.
Thomas Jefferson concluded his analysis with this statement:
"To the existence of banks of discount for cash, as on the continent of Europe, there
can be no objection, because there can be no danger of abuse, and they are a con-
venience both to merchants and individuals." 
There has been an organized effort to conceal the danger of the current banking system from the American people. How did the bankers (the Brotherhood of Darkness) hide the truth? They purchased most of the major media outlets, and designed an ingenious program to confuse the public. I will cite several examples. The following quotation is often attributed to Thomas Jefferson:
"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 them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up home-
less on the continent their Fathers conquered. . . . I believe that banking institutions are
more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. . . . The issuing power should be
taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." 
That statement is true, and I am certain Thomas Jefferson would agree with that premise if he was alive today, but, according to the Thomas Jefferson Encyclopedia, Thomas Jefferson didn't make that statement. Where did the quotation originate? It appeared in 1937, and has been cited since that time. The Thomas Jefferson Encyclopedia states:
"The first part of the quotation ('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 them will deprive the people of all property
until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.') has
not been found anywhere in Thomas Jefferson's writings. . . . It is identified in
Respectfully Quoted as spurious, and the editor further points out that the words
'inflation' and 'deflation' did not come into use until 1864 and 1920 respectively." The
second part of the quotation ('I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous
to our liberties than standing armies. . .') may well be a paraphrase of a statement
Jefferson made in a letter to John Taylor in 1816." 
If that is true, where did the quotation originate? Why did someone fabricate the quotation, and disseminate it throughout the world? Was it a hoax . . . like the Piltdown man that was used to validate the theory of evolution for 43 years? If the quotation is a hoax, can we believe anything that is attributed to Thomas Jefferson? Was the quotation planted to create confusion? I believe the quotation was designed to divert people's attention from the fact that the current banking system is destroying our nation.
I witnessed a similar deception twenty years ago when several prominent scientists claimed the AIDS epidemic was a hoax. What was the result? None of the leading scientists would debate that issue because the premise was preposterous, so the renegade scientists (one of them had worked on a CIA project) appeared on radio and television programs across America, and shifted the focus of the debate from: "where did the AIDS virus come from" and "why aren't we trying to stop further spread of the disease" to "is the AIDS epidemic real?" What was the result? The U.S. Public Health officials, and the World Health Organization didn't utilize the standard public health measures that were needed to stop the spread of AIDS, and millions of people have died. 
In a similar manner, the BOD is trying to conceal the origin of the current economic turmoil by disseminating confusing information about the ownership of the FED. As a result, many people believe the Rothschilds own the FED, some people believe the Zionists or the Jewish bankers own the FED, and others believe the Jesuits or the Vatican control the FED. Which position is correct? None of them. The occult brotherhood that directs the policies of the Bilderbergers, the Club of Rome, the CFR, the Group of 30, the Trilateral Commission, and several other occult organizations, control the FED, and the other Central Banks that rule the world. 
There has been a skillful effort to conceal Thomas Jefferson's concern about the banking system. I have several current books that chronicle his life and writings, but none of them address his concern about the monetary policies that threaten the survival of our nation today. Why? Because the men who control the publishing industry in the United States don't want the American people to understand the problem.
Mr. M.W. Walbert's book, The Coming Battle, describes the problem. He wrote:
This great international monetary trust now menaces the very life of this nation, and the
people must dethrone it and subordinate it to their will, or American liberty will vanish." 
"That there is a gigantic combination of the money dealers, a powerful international trust
of usurers, asserting a superiority above all jurisdictions, and having for its servants the
so-called statesmen and potentates of various nations, who willingly register the decrees
for this money power upon the statute-books of the respective states, is a fact that can
be sustained by irrebuttable evidence.
This great international monetary trust now menaces the very life of this nation, and the people must dethrone it and subordinate it to their will, or American liberty will vanish." 
The W.B. Conkey Company published The Coming Battle in 1899, and copies were sold across the United States, but most of the copies disappeared, and Mr. Walbert's information wasn't readily available until Paul Walter reprinted The Coming Battle in 1997. Copies of the book can be purchased from Radio Liberty.
Gertrude Coogan wrote a book in 1935 titled Money Creators. The book revealed the fraudulent nature of the Federal Reserve System. Many years later she told one of my friends that several wealthy men contacted her, and asked her to research the Federal Reserve System, and write another book on that subject. Gertrude said she was paid a large sum of money for her work, but when she gave the completed manuscript to the men, she was told her book would never be published. Could that be true? 
Professor Carroll Quigley wrote a book that discussed the banking system, Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in our Time, but shortly after the book was released, a competitor purchased the Macmillan Company (the publisher), and destroyed the plates to the first half of Professor Quigley's book. Radio Liberty offers an interview with Professor Quigley that describes what happened. 
Gary Allen wrote a book titled None Dare Call It Conspiracy (1972) that was based on the information that Professor Quigley presented. Gary Allen sold over 7 million copies of the pocket book edition of his book, and they could be purchased at used book stores for many years, but they are no longer available. What happened to the 7 million copies of Gary Allen's pocket book? You can purchase a hardbound copy of None Dare Call It Conspiracy from Amazon, but they don't carry the pocket book edition of Gary Allen's book. 
Radio Liberty does carry a soft-bound reprint of the book.
You will find flagrant examples of the current effort to suppress information about the banking system if you search the Internet for information on "Andrew Jackson's Farewell Address." If you access Google, the following site appears at the top of the page:
The article is an abridged version of Andrew Jackson's Farewell Address that deletes everything that President Andrew Jackson said about the danger of the banking system.
Then, if you scroll down the page, you will find: www.aircrash.org/burnelli/ajackson.htm The site provides the full text of President Jackson's Farewell address where he stated:
"We are not left to conjecture how the moneyed power, thus organized and with such a
weapon in its hands, would be likely to use it. The distress and alarm which pervaded
and agitated the whole country when the Bank of the United States waged war upon
the people in order to compel them to submit to its demands can not yet be forgotten.
The ruthless and unsparing temper with which whole cities and communities were
oppressed, individuals impoverished and ruined, and a scene of cheerful prosperity
suddenly changed into one of gloom and despondency ought to be indelibly impressed
on the memory of the people of the United States." 
Who censored President Andrew Jackson's Farewell Address? Why was President Jackson's warning about the danger of the banking system deleted? Why did someone place an abridged version of President Jackson's Farewell Address at the top of the Google page? I hope they haven't changed the page before you read this letter, but if they do, I can provide a copy of the page that I accessed for this letter.
There is a great deal more to this story, but it must wait until next month.

Millions of people have lost their homes, 12 million people have lost their jobs, one in every nine homes in the United States is empty, and over 26 million people owe more on their mortgages than their homes are worth. Why did this happen? The wicked men who control our banking system (the Brotherhood of Darkness) want to destroy our currency, impoverish our people, and establish a world government. What can we do? We can educate the American people, we can pray for God's protection, and we can remember that:
"Back of all that foes have plotted, Back of all that Saints have planned, Back of schemes by men or demons, Moves a higher, hidden hand. Mysteries which hurt and baffle, Past our power to understand In the end are turned to blessing, By the Sovereign Hidden Hand." Anonymous 
That thought must sustain us until our Lord returns.
Barbara and I appreciate your faithful support, and your prayers.
Yours in Christ,
