A myriad of high-ranking United States government officials have publicly stated that there is a small group of men who are secretly running our government and they have evil intentions. Former Presidents began speaking out about this invisible group as far back as George Washington. The last President to voice concern was JFK, before he was assassinated.
Thomas Jefferson wrote in a letter to John Taylor on May 28, 1816:
“I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.”
Since then, many people have come to believe that a handful of the most powerful banking execs are actually running the government. In addition, a letter written by FDR in 1933 claimed:
“A financial element in the large centers has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.”
John C. Calhoun was Jackson’s Vice President. He echoed the same sentiment in a speech given on May 27, 1836:
“A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many and various powerful interests, combined in one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in banks.”
Theodore Roosevelt also attempted to inform the American people of this hidden force in control of the government in his autobiography. He wrote:
“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”
With all of this evidence coming from individuals of the highest government pedigree, it seems hard to ignore the fact that there are invisible forces at play which are dictating the controversial government decisions running our lives.
