There is something behind the throne greater than the king himself. –Sir WIlliam Pitt.
“The world is governed by very different personages from what its imagined by those who are not behind the scenes. — Benjamin Disraeli
The real truth of the matter is that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson–Franklin D Roosevelt.
MY NOTE: Roosevelt was not completely right, he was “stretching” the truth. Andrew Jackson ended the rule of the central bankers when he vetoed the charter for the central bank. Alexander Hamilton and John Marshall were two founders who were manipulating behind the scenes against the Bill of Rights -in my opinion- because “By their fruits ye shall know them”. Hamilton pushed with all his might to establish a central bank for perpetuity — a private bank with a monopoly on all federal government transactions and with a view toward controlling private commerce– and Chief Justice Marshall presided over the decision to declare it constitutional.
The king outlawed the debt-free currency issued by the colonies in 1775.
“The refusal of King George III to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, was probably the prime cause of the Revolution”. — Benjamin Franklin
Central banks control interest rates, and money supply. Every unit of fiat currency comes with debt attached. Payment for that debt is done with the issuance of more units of debt. So they have to continue expanding the money supply. (“The debtor is servant to the creditor”–Proverbs)
Probable quote from one of the founding fathers:
“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous than standing armies… If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency.. THe banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of their property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
–Usually credited to Thomas Jefferson or Benjamin Franklin, more consistent in my opinion with Jefferson
“If you want to remain slaves of the bankers and pay for the costs of your own slavery, let them continue to create money and control the nation’s credit” — Sir Josiah Stamp, 1880-1941

Early 20th century.. J.P. Morgan’s rumor-mongering causing the panic of 1907. Life Magazine Frederick Allen of LIfe Magazine exposed it. Congress formed a commission to investigate headed by Senator Nelson Aldrich, later related to the Rockefellers by marriage. Later Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act as a promise for campaign funding.
Woodrow WIlson later said that this banking cartel now governed, and “democracy” was dead.
Charles Lindbergh, 1921 after the 1919 bank runs caused by a doubling of the money supply followed by a call for loan repayment by the Fed: “Under the Federal Reserve Act, panics are scientifically created. The present panic is the first scientifically created one, worked out as we figure a mathematical equation.”
That was followed by margin rules for stocks, with an option for a 24-hour margin call. Early 1929 the insider bankers quietly got out of stocks, then the Fed called in the margins, and banks collapsed. Then they shrunk the money supply.
Louis McFadden brought impeachment proceedings against the bankers: “It was a carefully contrived coccurence, international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair, so that they might emerge the rulers of us all.” But he was poisoned before he could bring it to realization.
The bankers associated with the Fed bought a bunch of banks at the time.
“Give me control of a nation’s currency and I care not who sits on the throne.” Amschel Rothschild.
