Inquiring minds are awed by a clear look into the workings of a liberal’s mind. In “Who runs America?“, a Canada Free Press article by Philip V. Brennan, is a rare piece of writing where the author opens the inner workings of his brain…
During the Civil War he [Abraham Lincoln] thwarted the international banking community which lusted after the opportunity to lend the North big bucks, and collect big bucks in interest for years to come.
Lincoln said: “The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of Government, but is the Government’s greatest creative opportunity…”
On February and March, 1862, and March 1863, Lincoln received Congressional approval to borrow $450 million from the people by selling them bonds, or “greenbacks”, to pay for the Civil War. They were not redeemable until 1865, when three could be exchanged for one in silver. They were made full legal tender in 1879.
Thus, Lincoln solved America’s monetary crisis without the help of the International Bankers, thereby enraging them.
The London Times later raged about Lincoln’s greenbacks: ‘If that mischievous financial policy which had its origin in the North America Republic during the late war in that country, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debt. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.’ “
Actually this is not an article praising the use of financing overall…it is a liberal’s view of the Boogie Man. Notice how there is not one piece of true “evidence” mentioned above. Just an assumption that the paradigm is true. Mr. Brennan is assuming the sale here…big time.
Funny how Leftists/Progressives always think there is a conspiracy in financing. If this proves anything, it is that humans create conspiracies when they don’t understand a process.
And this particular process is the free market of money. Most people don’t learn the rules of money. Therefore, they don’t understand financing. Our problem today is not a ‘conspiracy’…it is a deadly combination in the electorate of willful ignorance and a complete absence of introspection.
The idea in pop culture thinking that a society can break immutable laws of life (economy) and NOT have to face consequences is shocking. The post-WWII generations’ brains have settled into vain, narcissistic paradigms.
This article is a great example of no evidence being presented but a conclusion is produced. Without evidence, there is only one way left to manufacture a conclusion…feelings.
Here is exhibit 1:
This is not simply my opinion. You read what FDR wrote about the people who ran things when he was around, and they continue to run things today. The rest of this column will be the statements of other statesmen and politicians who have been warning against a not-so-secret cabal of international moneymen who control just about everything in Washington and most every other place on the face of the earth.
Notice what the author writes?
“This is not simply my opinion.”
Not just his opinion…but also the opinion of others. Of course, there is no hard evidence presented because of a “not-so-secret cabal of international moneymen who control just about everything”. And since “they” control “everything” how could there be evidence?
It must be a terrible, frightening existence to feel so helpless.
The article is great on many levels. Just the quotes are worth the time and effort.
