Thomas Jefferson saves the United States from devolving into a Federalist (cabal) dictatorship; Madison and Monroe allow themselves to retreat from Jeffersonian principles 1811 - Congress voted to abandon the First National Bank
1816: Second National Bank of the United States chartered
Second National Bank of the United States Second National Bank largely controlled by foreign investors through front men such as John Jacob Astor and David Parish, a New York agent for the Vienna branch of the Rothschild money interest. Nicholas Biddle runs 2nd Natl. Bank to benefit foreign owners, not Americans 1832: President Jackson vetoed 2nd National Bank recharter; Amos Kendall speech; 1833: Jackson removed deposits from Second National bank; Biddle retaliated by creating a panic to blackmail government for recharter; 1834: Biddle forced to stop bank panic; 5/6 of people in prison are debtors; 1837: Currency inflation caused a panic and banks refused to redeem currency for hard money; 1840: President Van Buren created U.S. Treasury; payments to federal agencies in hard money; 10 hour work limit for federal employees Federalist cabal adopted propaganda as major strategy; William H.

Garfield states two weeks before he was assassinated: “Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce…and when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.” The Rothschilds and their agents in the U.S. foment the Crash of 1893
The Northern Pacific Railway, the Union Pacific Railroad and the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad all failed. This was followed by the bankruptcy of many other companies; in total over 15,000 companies and 500 banks failed (many in the West). About 17%-19% of the workforce was unemployed at the Panic's peak.
1907: Rothschild agent, Jacob Schiff, head of Kuhn, Loeb and Co., in a speech to the New York Chamber of Commerce:
“Unless we have a Central Bank with adequate control of credit resources, this country is going to undergo the most severe and far reaching money panic in its history.”
The Rothschilds and their agents in the U.S. foment the Panic of 1907
The concocted panics are for the purpose of scaring Americans into a central bank
  The Rothschilds and their agents in the U.S. (the cabal) create the Federal Reserve System
Congressman Charles Lindbergh condemns the passing of the Federal Reserve Act on December 23: “The Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs this Bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be legalized . . . The greatest crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill.”
1914: Rothschilds own the three European news agencies, Wolff in Germany, Reuters in England, and Havas in France and manipulate the European people into a fervor for war; the cabal adopts "never-ending war" policy

1972: Nixon travels to China

A "lone psychotic assassin" sidelines Ronnie Reagan and Bush I becomes de facto President

Cabal steals 2000 and 2004elections for Bush II, plans and carries out 9/11 atrocity, economically plunders other nations through the contrivance of the American dollar, murders American military personnel, and enslaves American workers through vulture capitalism
