- Here is William T Still’s epic 3 ½ hour documentary explaining the history of the money lenders, and the lengths to which they will go, in order to secure their central banking system, now controlled from the BIS (Bank of International Settlements) in Basle, Switzerland.
In the year 2000 there were seven countries without a BIS / Rothschild central bank; they were Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea and Iran. Now there are only three left !
One of the very first things the invading forces did in Iraq was to set up a BIS / Rothschild central bank, which was completed within 3 or 4 days. Iraqis were told to hand in their old currency.
Here’s the beginning of an article in The Asia Times from November 2011 about the strange decision by a ‘rag-tag bunch of rebels’ (as presented to us, in the media) to set up a central bank, as a top priority ! Yes - those dangerous looking chaps you see on the news, hanging from the back of Toyota pick-ups, with Kalashnikovs. Who would have suspected that they were so well versed in international banking and finance, as to make the setting up of a BIS / Rothschild central bank a top priority? Very peculiar.

Several writers have noted the odd fact that the Libyan rebels took time out from their rebellion in March to create their own central bank - this before they even had a government.
Robert Wenzel wrote in the Economic Policy Journal:
“I have never before heard of a central bank being created in just a matter of weeks out of a popular uprising. This suggests we have a bit more than a rag tag bunch of rebels running around and that there are some pretty sophisticated influences.”
Alex Newman wrote in the New American:
In a statement released last week, the rebels reported on the results of a meeting held on March 19. Among other things, the supposed rag-tag revolutionaries announced the "[d]esignation of the Central Bank of Benghazi as a monetary authority competent in monetary policies in Libya and appointment of a Governor to the Central Bank of Libya, with a temporary headquarters in Benghazi."
Whatever might be said of Gaddafi's personal crimes, the Libyan people seem to be thriving. A delegation of medical professionals from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus wrote in an appeal to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin that after becoming acquainted with Libyan life, it was their view that in few nations did people live in such comfort:
“[Libyans] are entitled to free treatment, and their hospitals provide the best in the world of medical equipment. Education in Libya is free, capable young people have the opportunity to study abroad at government expense. When marrying, young couples receive 60,000 Libyan dinars (about 50,000 US dollars) of financial assistance. Non-interest state loans, and as practice shows, undated. Due to government subsidies the price of cars is much lower than in Europe, and they are affordable for every family. Gasoline and bread cost a penny, no taxes for those who are engaged in agriculture. The Libyan people are quiet and peaceful, are not inclined to drink, and are very religious.”
They maintained that the international community had been misinformed about the struggle against the regime. "Tell us," they said, "who would not like such a regime?"
Libya not only has oil. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), its central bank has nearly 144 tonnes of gold in its vaults. With that sort of asset base, who needs the BIS, the IMF and their rules?
All of which prompts a closer look at the BIS rules and their effect on local economies. An article on the BIS website states that central banks in the Central Bank Governance Network are supposed to have as their single or primary objective "to preserve price stability".
They are to be kept independent from government to make sure that political considerations don't interfere with this mandate. "Price stability" means maintaining a stable money supply, even if that means burdening the people with heavy foreign debts. Central banks are discouraged from increasing the money supply by printing money and using it for the benefit of the state, either directly or as loans.
In a 2002 article in Asia Times Online titled "The BIS V the National Banks" Henry Liu maintained:
BIS regulations serve only the single purpose of strengthening the international private banking system, even at the peril of national economies. The BIS does to national banking systems what the IMF has done to national monetary regimes. National economies under financial globalization no longer serve national interests.
... FDI [foreign direct investment] denominated in foreign currencies, mostly dollars, has condemned many national economies into unbalanced development toward export, merely to make dollar-denominated interest payments to FDI, with little net benefit to the domestic economies.
He added, "Applying the State Theory of Money, any government can fund with its own currency all its domestic developmental needs to maintain full employment without inflation." The "state theory of money" refers to money created by governments rather than private banks.
Here’s a quote by Abe Lincoln, included in the documentary. What’s the betting that the issue of the creation of money will NOT be featured in the all new Hollywood ‘epic’ about Abe Lincoln?
“The government should create, issue and circulate all the currency and credit needed to satisfy the spending power of the government and the buying power of consumers.
The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of government, but it’s greatest creative opportunity.
By the adoption of these principles…taxpayers will be saved immense amounts of interest. Money will cease to be the master and become the servant of humanity”
This was a response to this monetary policy, printed in The Times, at that time (I don’t know the date)
“If this mischievous financial policy, which has it’s origins in North America, shall become indurate, down to a fixture - then that government will furnish it’s own money without cost!
It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have the money necessary to carry on it’s commerce. It will become prosperous without precedent in the history of the world. The brains and wealth of all nations will go to North America. That country must be destroyed, or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”
“The powers of financial capitalism have a far-reaching plan, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole...Their secret is that they have annexed from governments, monarchies, and republics the power to create the world's money..."
The above is a quote from Professor Carroll Quigley's Tragedy & Hope (1966). Quigley was a mentor & educator to a young Bill Clinton. Quigley taught at Georgetown University, a Jesuit university.
Here’s the blurb from you tube:
THE MONEY MASTERS is a 3 1/2 hour non-fiction, historical documentary that traces the origins of the political power structure that rules our nation and the world today. The modern political power structure has its roots in the hidden manipulation and accumulation of gold and other forms of money. The development of fractional reserve banking practices in the 17th century brought to a cunning sophistication the secret techniques initially used by goldsmiths fraudulently to accumulate wealth. With the formation of the privately-owned Bank of England in 1694, the yoke of economic slavery to a privately-owned "central" bank was first forced upon the backs of an entire nation, not removed but only made heavier with the passing of the three centuries to our day. Nation after nation, including America, has fallen prey to this cabal of international central bankers.
