Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppression of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day”
It is important to understand Andrew Jackson because in understanding him you begin to grasp the unique form of corruption posed when the enemy is in control of the Money Supply. Follow the site from left to right and top to bottom for a overview of facts detailing the corruption we are faced with. You might have thought this not possible. The fact is, it is made possible by that very thinking because it is a game as old as mankind.
Excerpts taken from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Jackson#Opposition_to_the_National_Bank
The Second Bank of the United States was authorized for a twenty year period during James Madison’s tenure in 1816. As President, Jackson worked to rescind the bank’s federal charter. In Jackson’s veto message (written by George Bancroft), the bank needed to be abolished because:
- It concentrated the nation’s financial strength in a single institution.
(probably a good idea now with distributed computing)
- It exposed the government to control by foreign interests.
(Greenspan spoke about this directly at his last speech to Congress.)
- It served mainly to make the rich richer.
(Greenspan spoke about this directly at his last speech to Congress. )
- It exercised too much control over members of Congress.
(This refers to total corruption)
- It favored northeastern states over southern and western states.
(That is the Banking region)
- Banks are controlled by a few select families with personal interest.
(Greenspan touched upon this at his last speech to Congress. )
- Banks have a long history of instigating wars between nations, forcing them to borrow funding to pay for them.
(This would explain alot)
Following Jefferson, Jackson supported an “agricultural republic” and felt the Bank improved the fortunes of an “elite circle” of commercial and industrial entrepreneurs at the expense of farmers and laborers. After a titanic struggle, Jackson succeeded in destroying the Bank by vetoing its 1832 re-charter by Congress and by withdrawing U.S. funds in 1833.
1833 Democratic cartoon shows Jackson destroying the devil’s Bank.
The bank’s money-lending functions were taken over by the legions of local and state banks that sprang up. This fed an expansion of credit and speculation. At first, as Jackson withdrew money from the Bank to invest it in other banks, land sales, canal construction, cotton production, and manufacturing boomed. However, due to the practice of banks issuing paper banknotes that were not backed by gold or silver reserves, there was soon rapid inflation and mounting state debts. Then, in 1836, Jackson issued the Specie Circular, which required buyers of government lands to pay in “specie” (gold or silver coins). The result was a great demand for specie, which many banks did not have enough of to exchange for their notes. These banks collapsed. This was a direct cause of the Panic of 1837, which threw the national economy into a deep depression. It took years for the economy to recover from the damage.
The U.S. Senate censured Jackson on March 28, 1834, for his action in removing U.S. funds from the Bank of the United States. When the Jacksonians had a majority in the Senate, the censure was expunged.
The destruction of the Bank loosed American enterprise from its only central restraint. Gorged with federal deposits and with no one to control their note issues, state banks went on a lending spree that built up a speculative bubble and ended, just as Jackson left office in 1837, in a sickening crash. Jackson’s culpability for the ensuing depression is still debated. Jackson himself came to oppose all chartered banks and banknotes, state as well as federal, and to favor a return to gold and silver “hard money”—a radical deflation which Whigs charged would throw progress back a century. In Jackson’s farewell address on retiring from office, he elaborated the language of the Veto, condemning bank paper as an engine of oppression and warning of the insidious “money power” and of the growing control exerted by faceless corporations over ordinary citizens’ lives.
The problem is Jackson did not have a plan once the bankers were defeated to keep them out. It is also clear he did not have a good grasp of banking. He also seemed to forget these are families with an agenda, not an army you defeat and it goes away. Nationalizing the banking system is not communism, it takes the corruption out of much of life. As you see above the infiltration is insidious and we must be happy at least we have the best intelligence agency on the planet. We can fight this mistake, We Must!!!
Attack and assassination attempt
Richard Lawrence’s attempt on Jackson’s life, as depicted in an 1835 etching.
The first attempt to do bodily harm to a President was against Jackson. Jackson ordered the dismissal of Robert B. Randolph from the Navy for embezzlement. On May 6, 1833, Jackson sailed on USS Cygnet to Fredericksburg, Virginia, where he was to lay the cornerstone on a monument near the grave of Mary Ball Washington, George Washington’s mother. During a stopover near Alexandria, Virginia, Randolph appeared and struck the President. He then fled the scene with several members of Jackson’s party chasing him, including the well known writer Washington Irving. Jackson decided not to press charges.
On January 30, 1835, what is believed to be the first attempt to kill a sitting President of the United States occurred just outside the United States Capitol. When Jackson was leaving the Capitol out of the East Portico after the funeral of South Carolina Representative Warren R. Davis, Richard Lawrence, an unemployed and deranged housepainter from England, either burst from a crowd or stepped out from hiding behind a column and aimed a pistol at Jackson, which misfired. Lawrence then pulled out a second pistol, which also misfired. It has been postulated that moisture from the humid weather contributed to the double misfiring. Lawrence was then restrained, with legend saying that Jackson attacked Lawrence with his cane, prompting his aides to restrain him. Others present, including David Crockett, restrained and disarmed Lawrence.
Richard Lawrence gave the doctors several reasons for the shooting. He had recently lost his job painting houses and somehow blamed Jackson. He claimed that with the President dead, “money would be more plenty” (a reference to Jackson’s struggle with the Bank of the United States) and that he “could not rise until the President fell.” Finally, he informed his interrogators that he was a deposed English King—specifically, Richard III, dead since 1485—and that Jackson was merely his clerk. He was deemed insane and institutionalized.
