Famous Quotes

This page is a collection of excerpts from my favorite readings.  Some of these quotes are made by deeply intelligent and gracious souls.  Some were made by deeply despotic and lost souls. Some were made by people simply speaking truth and some are made by people exposing pride based ignorance.  One thing is common to them all:

5. If the nation can issue a dollar bond it can issue a dollar bill. The element that makes the bond good makes the bill good also.

(Thomas Edison)

13.If the patriot is executed he knows his crime was that he did something. If the majority are terminated will they know their crime was that they did nothing? Alan Gourley 1985

14.Educators use scientifically designed `social engineering' and Douglas Swan. N.S.W.

No `ifs' or `buts'; no explanation - the people are scorned.

24.Count Destutt de Tracy: "A theft of greater magnitude and still more ruinous, is the making of paper money; it is greater because in this money there is absolutely no real value; it is more ruinous because by its gradual depreciation during the time of its existence, it produces the effect which would be proration of the coins. All those iniquities are founded on the false idea the money is but a sign."

25.: "Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce." (Paul Warburg, drafter of the Federal Reserve Act)

26. The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is when good men do nothing. ( Edmund Burke)

27."A great industrial Nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the Nation and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the world -- no longer a Government of free opinion, no longer a government of conviction and vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men." (Woodrow Wilson)

28."A power over a man's subsistence amounts to a power over his will." (Alexander Hamilton)

29."It is not a matter of what is true that counts, but a matter of what is perceived to be true." (Henry Kissinger)

30."We have had to borrow money to pay the king's tax on our fields and vineyards. Although we are of the same flesh and blood as our countrymen and though our sons are as good as theirs, yet we have to subject our sons and daughters to slavery. Some of our daughters have already been enslaved, but we are powerless, because our fields and our vineyards belong to others" (Nehemiah 5:4-5).

31.I Samuel 8:11-18 He said: "This is what the king who will reign over you will do: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. Your menservants and maidservants and the best of your cattle and donkeys he will take for his own use. He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that day."

32."Among other deformities, it has an awful squinting: it squints toward monarchy. And does not raise indignation in the breast of every American? Your President may easily become King. . . The army will salute him Monarch: your militia will leave you and assist in making him King and fight against you. And what have you to oppose this force? What will then become of you and your rights? Will not absolute despotism ensue?"  (Patrick Henry  re : constitution July 7 , 1788)

33.Hosea 4:6: "My people are destroyed by a lack of knowledge."

35."Those unaware are unaware of being unaware." (Merrill Jenkins)

36., Marriner Eccles, then chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, in testimony before the Banking and Currency Committee of the House of Representatives on the Banking Act of 1935. Mr. Eccles testified: "In purchasing offerings of Government bonds, the banking system as a whole creates new money, or bank deposits. When the banks buy a billion dollars of Government bonds as they are offered -- and you have to consider the banking system as a whole, as a unit -- the banks credit the deposit account of the Treasury with a billion dollars. And they debit their Government bond account a billion dollars, or actually create, by a bookkeeping entry, a billion dollars."

37.President Eisenhower's Secretary of the Treasury Anderson in an interview with U.S. News and World Report on August 31, 1959 was asked: "Do you mean that banks, in buying Government securities, do not lend out their customers' deposits? That they create the money they use to buy the securities?"
Answer (by Secretary Anderson): "That is correct. Banks are different from other lending institutions. When a savings and loan association, an insurance company, or a credit union makes a loan, it lends the very dollar that its customers have previously paid in. But when a bank makes a loan, it simply adds to the borrower's deposit account in the bank by the amount of the loan. The money is not taken from anyone else's deposit; it was not previously paid in to the bank by anyone. It's new money, created by the bank for the use of the borrower."

38."We are completely dependent on the commercial Banks. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash or credit. If the Banks create ample synthetic money we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent money system. When one gets a complete grasp of the picture, the tragic absurdity of our hopeless position is almost incredible, but there it is. It is the most important subject intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it becomes widely understood and the defects remedied soon." (Robert H. Hemphill, Credit Manager of Federal Reserve Bank, Atlanta, Ga.)

39."The banks -- commercial banks and the Federal Reserve -- create all the money of this nation and its people pay interest on every dollar of that newly created money. Which means that private banks exercise unconstitutionally, immorally, and ridiculously the power to tax the people. For every newly created dollar dilutes to some extent the value of every other dollar already in circulation." (Congressman Jerry Voorhis)

40.1765: Prior to the establishment of the United States, Blackstone said in his commentaries: "If a man counterfeits the King's money; and if a man brings false money into the realm counterfeit to the money of England, knowing the money to be false." As to the first branch, counterfeiting the King's money; this is treason, whether the false money be uttered in payment or not. Also if the King's own ministers alter the standard of alloy established by law, it is treason."

41.DECEMBER 5, 1836: President Andrew Jackson said in his message to Congress: "It is apparent from the whole context of the Constitution as well as the history of the times which gave birth to it, that it was the purpose of the Convention to establish a currency consisting of the precious metals. These were adopted by a per-exchange, such as of certain agricultural commodities recognized by the statutes of some States as tender for debts, or the still more pernicious expedient of paper currency."

42.AUGUST 19, 1877: In a speech made by the Secretary of Treasury John Sherman, he said: "There is a large class of people who believe that paper can be, and ought to be, made into money without any promise or hope of redemption; that a note should be printed: "This is a dollar," and be made a legal tender. I regard this as a mild form of lunacy, and have no disposition to debate with men who indulge in such delusions, which have prevailed to some extent, at different times, in all countries, but whose life has been brief, and which have shared the fate of other popular delusions. The Supreme Court only maintained the constitutionality of the legal tender promise to pay a dollar by a divided court, and on the ground that it was issued in the nature of a forced loan, to be redeemed upon the payment of a real dollar; that is, so many grains of silver or gold. I therefore dismiss such wild theories, and speak only to those who are willing to assume, as an axiom, that gold and silver or coined money, have been proven by all human experience to be the best possible standards of value, and that paper money is simply a promise to pay such coined money, and should be made and kept equal to coined money, by being convertible on demand.

43.Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! (Patrick Henry 1775)

44. ADAM WISEHOPHF, Professor at Germany's Ingolstadt University, founded The Order of the Illuminati on May 1, 1776. This man designed the very plan of world domination that is still in use today to enslave the world's masses. Here, upon establishing his "Order of the Illuminati", he smugly reflects on his "conning" the gullible Christians of his day, saying:

"The most wonderful thing of all is that the distinguished Lutheran and Calvinist theologians who belong to our order really believe that they see in it (Illuminati) the true and genuine sense of Christian Religion. Oh mortal man, is there anything you cannot be made to believe?"

45. BENJAMIN DISRAELI, Prime Minister of England, was attributed with this statement in 1844: The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes."

46. WINSTON CHURCHILL, Prime Minister of England, stated to the London Press in 1922: "From the days of Sparticus Wisehophf, Karl Marx, Trotski, Belacoon, Rosa Luxenburg, and Ema Goldman, this world conspiracy has been steadily growing. This conspiracy played a definite reconizable role in the tragedy of the French revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th Century. And now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their head and have become the undisputed masters of that enormous empire."

47. JUSTICE FELIX FRANKFURTER, U.S. Supreme Court Justice: "The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes."

48. JOHN F. HYLAN, Mayor of New York 1918 - 1925, said "The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities states and nation."

49. FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT, U.S. President, in a letter written Nov. 21, 1933 to Colonel E. Mandell House, Roosevelt states: "The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson." (History points to the last truly honorable and incorruptible American president as Andrew Jackson "Old Hickory".)

50. ROWAN GAITHER, President of the Ford Foundation, in 1954 lends proof to what we know to be fact today, namely that many of our Presidents have been a knowing part of this World Conquest plot. Mr. Gaither stated to Congressional Reese Commission investigator Norman Dodd: "We operate here under directives which emulate from the White House...The substance of the directives under which we operate is that we shall use our grant making power to alter life in the United states so that we can comfortably be merged with the Soviet Union. " (Ike was President at the time.)

51. CARROLL QUIGLEY, Professor of History at Georgetown University, member of the CFR (one of the U.S. Organizations dedicated to World Government) stated in his book Tragedy & Hope: "The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is the American Branch of a society which originated in England... (and) ...believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established." (Professor Quigley, according to his book, was totally dedicated to the One World Government program. Hundreds of our City, State and National politicians are members of this and other NWO groups. Governor Clinton, for example, attended Georgetown U. and stated that his mentor, Professor Q., taught him so many wonderful things. Since Gov. Clinton and his wife are totally dedicated, International Socialists amd NWO promoters, perhaps Prof. Q. did have a great affect!)

52. BARRY GOLDWATER, U.S. Senator (Arizona) in his book WITH NO APOLOGIES stated this about another Globalist group: "The Trilateralist Commission is international...(and)...is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. The Trilateralist Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power POLITICAL, MONETARY, INTELLECTUAL, and ECCLESIASTICAL

53. PETER HOAGLAND, Nebraska State Senator and Humanist, speaking on radio in 1983 with the great American Pastor and Patriot Everett Sileven said:

"Fundamental, Bible believing people do not have the right to indoctrinate their children in their religious beliefs because we, the state, are preparing them for the year 2000, when America will be part of a one-world global society and their children will not fit in."

54. DAVID ROCKEFELLER, International billionaire, Humanist, CFR kingpin, founder of the Trilateralist Commission, World Order Godfather (and in all probability the High School graduate voted "Most Likely to Be Hanged for Treason"), voiced his praise of the controlled U.S. media for keeping their oath not to divulge the Globalist plans to the public. Speaking to his fellow conspirators at a meeting, June 1991 in Baden Baden, Germany, of yet one more infamous World Order group, the Bilderbergers, Mr. Rockefeller said:

"We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of descretion for almost forty years."

He went on to explain:

"It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodeter- mination practiced in past centuries."

(It is not reported if the attendees kissed his ring - or anything else - after their leader bestowed his blessing on those in attendance). Actually, we could ask Governor Clinton or Dan Quayle, both of whom were there. Bush and Clinton are Bilderbergers, Internationalists, and their goals are exactly the same for America.

Let us repeat ... CLINTON'S, BUSH'S, AND PEROT'S, PLANS FOR AMERICA ARE VIRTUALLY IDENTICAL. The Republicans and Democrats goals for America are virtually identical. They both are taking our nation into global government

55. JAMES PAUL WARBURG, Foreign Agent of the Rothschild Dynasty, major player in the Federal Reserve Act scam: on February 17, 1950, while speaking before the United States Senate, this pompous Internationalist boasted confidently, "We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent."

56. ROBERT KENNEDY, former U.S. Attorney General of the U.S.: "All of us will ultimately be judged on the effort we have contributed to building a NEW WORLD ORDER." - 1967

57. GEORGE W. MALLONE, U.S. Senator (Nevada), speaking before Congress in 1957, alluded to the families that secretly own the "Federal" Reserve Bank and control the finances of the U.S.. He stated:

"I believe that if the people of this nation fully understood what Congress has done to them over the last 49 years, they would move on Washington; they would not wait for an election.... It adds up to a preconceived plan to destroy the economic and social independence of the United States!"

58. THOMAS JEFFERSON, U.S. President: "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the Government at defiance. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs."

59. JAMES A. GARFIELD, U.S. President: "Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce."

60. HENRY FORD, Founder of Ford Motor Company, commented on the privately owned "Federal" Reserve System scam: "It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning."

61. LEWIS MCFADDIN, U.S. Congressman, said this about those same international financial conspirators, during the very time they were taking over the monetary control of America: "We have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks, hereinafter called the FED. They are not government institutions. They are private monopolies which prey upon the people of these United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers..."

62. AMERICAN MERCURY MAGAZINE, December 1957, pg. 92. "The invisible Money Power is working to control and enslave mankind. It financed Communism, Facism, Marxism, Zionism and Socialism. All of these are directed to making the United States a member of World Government..."

63. ROTHSCHILD BROTHERS OF LONDON. In a letter discussing their new banking scheme with fellow conspirators, June 25, 1863, they stated:

"The few who understand the system, will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors that there will be no opposition from that class. The great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantages will bear its burden without complaint".

63. RUSSELL MUNK, Assistant General Counsel, Dept. of the Treasury, in a 1977 letter admitted: "Federal Reserve Notes Are Not Dollars." (Then what is that paper stuff in your wallet?)

64. John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff for the New York Times, was one of America's best loved newspapermen. Called by his peers "The Dean of his Profession", John was asked in 1953 to give a toast before the New York Press Club, and in so doing made a monumentally important and revealing statement. He is quoted as follows:

"There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilties and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes."

65. RICHARD M. COHAN, Senior Producer of CBS political news said: "We are going to impose OUR AGENDA on the coverage by dealing with the issues and subjects WE choose to deal with."

66. RICHARD SALANT, former President of CBS News stated: "Our job is to give people not what they want, but what WE decide they ought to have." And what is their "agenda"? What do they believe we, the American people THE COMMON HERD, "...ought to have"? Here is the answer:

NORMAN THOMAS, For many years the U.S. Socialist Presidential candidate proclaimed:

"The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of "liberalism" they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." (How sadly true his words. He (Thomas) and Gus Hall, the U.S. Communist Party Candidate, both quit American politics, agreeing that the Republican and Democratic parties by 1970 had adopted every plank on the Communist/Socialist agenda and they no longer had an alternate party platform on which to run.)

67. DR. KURK E. KOCH, Professor, Lectured at 100 Universities in 65 countries on 5 continents. Subjects of expertise: New World Order, Occultism, Extreme Movements, Parapsychology. His accessment of the coming NWO under the United Nations is that it will reduce everything to one common denominator:

"The system will be made up of a single currency, single centrally financed government, single tax system, single language, single political system, single world court of justice, single head (one individual leader), single state religion."

He further states: "Each person will have a registered number, without which he will not be allowed to buy or sell; and there will be one universal world church. Anyone who refuses to take part in this universal system will have no right to exist."

68. JOHN E. RANKIN, U.S. Congressman: "The United Nations is the greatest fraud in all History. Its purpose is to destroy the United States."

69. GEORGE BUSH, New York 1991, "My vision of a NEW WORLD ORDER foresees a United Nations with a revitalized peacekeeping function."

And one more classic quote from our traitor President: "It is the SACRED principles enschrined in the UN Charter to which we will henceforth pledge our allegiance." - UN Building, February 1, 1992.

70. ZBIGNIEW BREZHINSKY, National Security Advisor to Pres. Jimmy Carter and advisor to 4 other presidents, Exec. Dir. of Trilateral Comm. Marxist and proud of it! Here he speaks about what a New World Order will be like: "The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values."

71. ZBIGNIEW continues: "Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities." From Zbig's book, BETWEEN TWO AGES.

72. WALT RUSTOW, Council on Foreign Relations member and U.N. spokesmen: "It is in the American interest to put an end to Nationhood." (Sure it is, Walter!)

73. HUMANIST MANIFESTO, Article 12: "We deplore the division of humankind on nationalistic grounds. We have reached a turning point in human history where the best option is to transcend the limits ,of national sovereignty and to move towards the building of a world community. We look toward the development of a system of world law, world order, based upon transnational government." (Humanists propose that the United Nations care for and control all peoples of the earth.)

74. LT. COL. JAMES "BO" GRITZ (RET), U.S. Presidential Candidate 1992, Most decorated Green Beret Commander in American history. Commander, U.S. Army Special Forces, Latin America. Chief, Delta force. This great American hero explains the conspiracy within the U.S. government as follows: "...A spider web of "patriots for profit," operating from the highest positions of special trust and confidence, have successfully circumvented our constitutional system in pursuit of a New World Order. They have infused America with drugs in order to fund covert operations while sealing the fate of our servicemen left in communist prisons. Hiding behind a mask of official righteousness, this secret combination seeks to impose its own concept of geopolitical navigation, nullifying liberty as the hardwon birthright of all Americans".

75. DAVID SPANGLER, Director of PLANETARY INITIATIVE, (a United Nations World government group): "No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation."

76. "There is no distinctly American criminal class - except Congress."
Mark Twain (1835-1910)

77. Alexander I. Solzhenitsyn said the alliance is "at first glance a strange one, a surprising one--but as you think about it, one which is well grounded and easy to understand. This is the alliance between our communist leaders and your Capitalist." Solzhenitsyn said American Capitalists assisted Lenin "In the very first years of the Revolution," and that since then "we observe continuous and steady support by the businessmen of the West." This is Conspiracy. Then Solzhenitsyn says "...I only requested one thing...When they bury us in the ground alive...please do not send them shovels. Please do not send them the most modern earthmoving equipment."

78. Dr. William Glasser, author of Reality Therapy, says, "...we have to let students know there are no right answers, and we have to let them see that there are many alternatives to certainty and right answers...The truth does not make much difference basically...It is very unfortunate that we get so concerned that what we teach is certain and correct." Now really, what kind of idiotic nonsense is this? And people have taken this numbskull seriously? If anything should cause parents to worry about their children, and not trust the school system, this should do it.

79. "The war against illegal plunder has been fought since the beginning of the world. But how is... legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime. Then abolish this law without delay ....... If such a law is not abolished immediately it will spread, multiply and develop into a system."
Frederic Bastiat, French author of The Law (1848)

80. "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter."
Isaiah 5:20

81. Rowan Gaither, President, Ford Foundation,1954, stated to Congressional Reese Commission investigator Norman Dodd:
"We operate here under directives which emulate from the White House... The substance of the directives under which we operate is that we shall use our grant making power to alter life in the United States so that we can comfortably be merged with the Soviet Union."

82. Georgetown professor Dr. Carroll Quigley (Bill Clinton's mentor while at Georgetown) wrote about the goals of the investment bankers who control central banks: "... 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... controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences."

83. The Bank of the United States (1816-36), an early attempt at an American central bank, was abolished by President Andrew Jackson, who believed that it threatened the nation. He wrote: "The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government, the distress it had wantonly produced...are but premonitions of the fate that awaits the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it."

84. Congressman Louis McFadden, House Committee on Banking and Currency Chairman (1920-31), stated: "When the Federal Reserve Act was passed, the people of these United States did not perceive that a world banking system was being set up here. A super-state controlled by international bankers and industrialists...acting together to enslave the world...Every effort has been made by the Fed to conceal its powers but the truth is--the Fed has usurped the government."

85. "Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough
to take everything you have .... The course of history shows that
as a government grows, liberty decreases."

Thomas Jefferson

86"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society,
they create for themselves in the course of time, a legal system that
authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it."
Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850)
Economic Sophisms

87. "The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists".
J. Edgar Hoover, former head of the FBI

88. "Every child in American who enters school with an allegiance toward our elected officials, toward our founding fathers, toward our institutions, toward the preservation of this form of government... all of this proves the children are sick, because the truly well individual is one who has rejected all of those things and is what I would call the true international child of the future".
Chester M. Pierce, Harvard University psychiatrist, at a 1973 International Education Seminar, as quoted in "Educating For The New World Order" by B.K. Eakman

89. "The CFR [Council On Foreign Relations, New York City] is the American Branch of a society which originated in England and believes national directives should be obliterated and one-world rule established. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years, and was permitted in the early 1960's to examine its papers and secret records... I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known".
Dr. Carroll Quigley, Professor of International Relations, Georgetown University Foreign Service School, Washington, D.C., author of the epic "Tragedy & Hope", advocate of one-world government and personal mentor of President William Clinton (who acknowledged Professor Quigley during his 1992 presidential inauguration speech)

The most secret knowledge, a science which outdates history, is the science of control over people, governments and civilizations. The foundation of this ultimate discipline is the control of wealth. Through the control of wealth comes the control of public information and the necessities of life. Through the control of news media comes thought control. Through the control of basic necessities comes direct physical control of people.

121. WASHINGTON, Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- When asked what's wrong with letting local school districts decide how best to spend federal education dollars, President Clinton replied, "because it's not their money"

Once again, Bill knows how to spend other people's money better than they do.

122. "That paper money corrupted the morals of the people; it had diverted them from the paths of honest industry to the ways of ruinous speculation; it had destroyed both public and private credit, and had brought total ruin on numberless widows and orphans...I apprehend these general reasoning will be found true with respect to paper money: that experience has shown that, in every state where it has been practiced since the revolution, it always carries the gold and silver out of the country, and impoverishes it."6 (C.C. Pinckney)

123. An informed, productive, independent citizenry is not in the public interest. (The government refers to its own self-interest as the "public" interest). The government has everything to lose, and nothing to gain, from the appearance and growth of an intelligent, productive, independent population.  (Paul Hien , Jan 1, 2001)

124. "Our rulers will become corrupt, our people careless... the time for fixing every essential right on a legal basis is [now] while our rulers are honest, and ourselves united. From the conclusion of this war we shall be going downhill. It will not then be necessary to resort every moment to the people for support. They will be forgotten, therefore, and their rights disregarded. They will forget themselves, but in the sole faculty of making money, and will never think of uniting to effect a due respect for their rights. The shackles, therefore, which shall not be knocked off at the conclusion of this war, will remain on us long, will be made heavier and heavier, till our rights shall revive or expire in a convulsion."11 (Thomas Jefferson)

125. "All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined could not, by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge in a trial of a thousand years. At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we ourselves must be its author and finisher." ( Abraham Lincoln)

126. There are several ways to gain control over a nation beyond armed conflict. To quote John Maynard Keynes (1838-1946), a well known English economist, "Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer way to overturn existing society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the economic forces on the side of destruction which not one man in a million is able to diagnose."

127. The greatest obstacle in America adopting socialism is literacy.  ( John Dewey father of the whole word teaching method)

128. Dewey's former professor and close friend, G. Stanley Hall, said this at about the same time. "Reading should no longer be a fetish. Little attention should be paid to reading."

129. One of Bismark’s  great discoveries was that of the Pussian School system,  which in the 1800’s was the model of the finest military school systems,  could be expanded to the proletariat in general to achieve  the following:
 1) Obedient soldiers to the army;
2) Obedient workers to the mines;
3) Well subordinated civil servants to government;
4) Well subordinated clerks to industry;
5) Citizens who thought alike about major issues.

...You need to know this because over the first 50 years of our school institution Prussian purpose - which was to create a form of state socialism - gradually forced out traditional American purpose, which in most minds was to prepare the individual to be self-reliant.

...Well-schooled children cannot think critically, cannot argue effectively.

130. Here is a fine example quoted by Caldwell & Zanfagna in their book Fluoridation and Truth Decay p8, from writings of Edward L Bernays; quote:
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses must be done by experts, the public relations counsels (Bernays invented the term); they are the invisible rulers who control the destinies of millions ... the most direct way to reach the herd is through the leaders. ... all this must be planned ... indoctrination must be subtle. It should be worked into the everyday life of the people - 24 hours a day in hundreds of ways ... A redefinition of ethics is necessary ... the subject matter of propaganda need not necessarily be true. EQ. EA.

The battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith ...

132. The following quotation is from an address given by Sir Herbert Gepp to the Constitutional Association (30/5/1938) Sydney, Australia.
Emphasizing the duties and responsibilities of youth in a democracy he said; quote:
The so-called mysteries of banking, finance and economics are mysteries only to those who will not take the trouble to try to understand.
I do not suggest it is possible to obtain a complete appreciation of all factors operating in our complex civilization, but I do maintain that the colossal ignorance today of economic fundamentals is the gravest danger to the continuance of democracies. EQ.

133. Chartered Accountant Stanley Allen F.C.A. Quote:
To the average citizen, economics still remains 'the dismal science', but the speaker was correct in his suggestion that it goes to the root of most of the world's trouble today. It may at least be suspected that a condition of affairs in which men are able and willing to work are unable to find secure jobs, and in which urgent works are delayed because a prosperous community declares that it can raise no money for them, is no advertisement for the knowledge of economics possessed by the community. It may also be suspected that a better knowledge of economics on the part of the leaders might at least mitigate these evils to which democracy at the present moment is prone. EQ.

135. "The second general phrase is, "to make all laws necessary and proper for carrying into execution the enumerated powers." But they can all be carried into execution without a bank. A bank therefore is not necessary, and consequently not authorized by this phrase.
It has been urged that a bank will give great facility or convenience in the collection of taxes. Suppose this were true: yet the Constitution allows only the means which are "necessary," not those which are merely "convenient" for effecting the enumerated powers."10 (Thomas Jefferson)

Should the stock of the bank principally pass into the hands of the subjects of a foreign country, and we should unfortunately become involved in a war with that country, what would be our condition?...If we must have a bank with private stockholders, every consideration of sound policy and every impulse of American feeling admonishes that it should be purely American."18  ( A. Jackson)

141. "A great industrial Nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the Nation and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the world -- no longer a Government of free opinion, no longer a government of conviction and vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men."32 (President Woodrow Wilson)

142. "...And to preserve their independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, and give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses; and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do, on oatmeal and potatoes; have not time to think, no means of calling the mismanager's to account; but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow sufferers..."37 (Thomas Jefferson)

143. "The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in inequity and born in sin...Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them but leave them the power to create money, and, with a flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again...Take this great power away from them and all great fortunes like mine will disappear, for then this would be a better and happier world to live in...But, if you want to continue to be the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money and control credit."39 (Sir Josiah Stamp)  Former president of the Bank of England.

145. T. Coleman Andrews served as Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service for nearly three years in the early fifties. Finally he resigned and made the following statement: "The income tax is fulfilling the Marxist prophecy that the surest way to destroy a capitalist society is by steeply graduated taxes on income and heavy levies upon the estates of people when they die. As matters now stand, if our children make the most of their capabilities and training they will have to give most of it to the tax collector and so become slaves of the government. People cannot pull themselves up by their own bootstraps anymore because the tax collector gets the boots and the straps as well. The income tax is bad because it is oppressive to all and discriminates particularly against those people who prove themselves most adept at keeping the wheels of business turning and creating maximum employment and high standard of living for their fellow men. I believe that a better way to raise revenue must be found because I am convinced that the present system is leading us right back to the very tyranny from which those, who established this land of freedom, risked their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to forever free themselves."

146 “..…. if a child were kept in a place where he never saw any other but black and white till he were a man, he would have no more ideas of scarlet or green than he that from his childhood never tasted an oyster or a pineapple has of those particular relishes.”  John Locke

147.  “… any simple idea not received in by his senses from external objects, or by reflection from the operations of his own mind about them. I would have anyone try to fancy any taste which had never affected his palate, or frame the idea of a scent he had never smelt; and when he can do this, I will also conclude that a blind man hath ideas of colors, and a deaf man true, distinct notions of sounds.
John Locke.

148    "I think of all the damnable heresies that have ever been suggested in connection with the Constitution, the doctrine of emergency is the worst. It means that when Congress declares an emergency there is no Constitution. This means its death....But the Constitution of the United States, as a restraining influence in keeping the federal government within the carefully prescribed channels of power, is moribund, if not dead. We are witnessing its death-agonies, for when this bill becomes a law, if unhappily it becomes law, there is no longer any workable Constitution to keep the Congress within the limits of its constitutional powers."

172. John Taylor Gatto was a public school teacher in Manhattan for 26 years. Each year from 1989 to 1991 he was named New York City Teacher Of The Year. In 1991 the New York Senate named him State Teacher Of The Year. The following excerpts are from his book, Dumbing Us Down:

"Was it possible I had been hired not to enlarge children's power, but to diminish it? That seemed crazy on the face of it, but slowly I began to realize that the bells and the confinement, the crazy sequences, the age-segregation, the lack of privacy, the constant surveillance, and all the rest of the national curriculum of schooling were designed exactly as if someone had set out to prevent children from learning how to think and act, to coax them into addiction and dependent behavior.
"...the truth is that reading, writing and arithmetic only take about one hundred hours to transmit as long as the audience is eager and willing to learn.

"...Institutional schoolteaching is destructive to children. ...[T]he massive rethinking the schools require would cost so much less than we are spending now that powerful interests cannot afford to let it happen.

"The lesson of my teaching life is that both the theory and structure of mass-education are fatally flawed; ...Mass education cannot work to produce a fair society because its daily practice is practice in rigged competition, suppresion, and intimidation. The schools we've allowed to develop can't work to teach nonmaterial values, the values which give meaning to everyone's life, rich or poor, because the structure of schooling is held together by a Byzantine tapestry of reward and threat, of carrots and sticks. Working for official favor, grades, or other trinkets of subordination; these have no connection with education - they are the paraphernalia of servitude, not freedom.

"Break up these institutional schools, decertify teaching. Let anyone who has a mind to teach bid for customers, privatize the whole business - trust the free market system. I know it's easier to say than do, but what other choice do we have? We need lees school, not more."

According to an article by John Taylor Gatto published in the Las Vegas Review-Journal on June 13, 1993 under the title "The Public School Nightmare," the American state education system [infact, all "compulsory education" systems of other countries also] was copied from the Prussian 19th century system with the objective to produce:

1) Obedient soldiers to the army;
2) Obedient workers to the mines;
3) Well subordinated civil servants to government;
4) Well subordinated clerks to industry;
5) Citizens who thought alike about major issues.

...You need to know this because over the first 50 years of our school institution Prussian purpose - which was to create a form of state socialism - gradually forced out traditional American purpose, which in most minds was to prepare the individual to be self-reliant.

184. "The money power preys upon the nation in times of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few and the Republic is destroyed...I feel at the moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war."

There will be no significant internal change within the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our purpose is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep." On another occasion he said: "We are moving toward a new world, the world of Communism. We shall never turn off that road."

189. Henri-Paul Spaak(1888-1972), the socialist leader and former Secretary-General of NATO, who was one of the three major proponents of a united Europe said: "We do not want another committee.
