“Justice, full and ample justice, to every portion of the United States, should be the ruling
principle of every freeman, and should guide the deliberations of every public body, whether it
be state or national.” – Andrew Jackson.
“The third and most insidious and most dangerous form of power that has yet appeared to
threaten the material well-being of the race; which new holds every civilized and semi-civilized
people in its merciless grasp; which is appropriating to itself the productive energies of the
world; which is subordinating the press, the pulpit, and the statesmen of the day to its ambitious
ends; which openly boasts of its nefarious methods in the courts, legislatures, and other
parliamentary bodies of nations, is the modern money power.
That there is a gigantic combination of the money dealers, a powerful international trust of
usurers, asserting a superiority above all jurisdictions, and having for its servants the so-called
statesmen and potentates of various nations, who willingly register the decrees of this money
power upon the statute-books of the respective states, is a fact that can be sustained by
This great international monetary trust now menaces the very life of this nation, and the people
must dethrone it and subordinate it to their will, or American liberty will vanish.
The Declaration of Independence, which announced the true principles of government, was a
memorable protest against the rapacious money power composed of the landed aristocracy, the
trading, commercial, and manufacturing interests of England, which, by a long series of vicious and unconstitutional acts of Parliament, sought to eat out the substance of the colonists.” (page 9 The Coming Battle)
“Andrew Jackson was in many respects the most remarkable man in American history. A sincere
patriot of the purest integrity, with a clearness of mental vision that was unsurpassed, with a
profound insight into the principles upon which our Government rested, he plainly saw that the
interests of the bank were wholly at variance with that of American liberty.
He well knew that to transfer to a private corporation for its gain, the issuance and control of the
currency of the country, and to accumulate in its vaults the national revenues, would eventuate
in building up a moneyed monopoly, ultimately controlling the press, the business interests, and
the legislation of the nation.” (pg26 ibid)
“…a circular was issued by the London bankers, and distributed by one Hazard, who was their representative in this country at that time. The contents of this famous circular are as follows:”
– “Slavery is likely to be abolished by the war power and chattel slavery destroyed. This I and my European friends are in favor of; for slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care of the laborer, while the European plan, led on by England, is capital control of labor by controlling wages. This can be done by controlling the money. The debt, that capitalists will see is to be made out of the war, must be used as a measure to control the volume of money. To accomplish this the bonds must be used as a banking basis. We are now waiting for the Secretary of the Treasury to make his recommendation to Congress. It will not do to allow the greenback (as it is called) to circulate as money any length of time, for we cannot control it.” ( pg 52 ibid)
