The Origin of a Dynasty
Neal Ross

For almost as long as there has been money there have been bankers; those whose chosen profession is to profit off the use of other people’s money. One aspect of banking that people do not pay much attention to is money changing; the exchanging of the currency of one country for that of another. Much has been written and said about these predatory vipers, but there are two specific instances that I feel are worthy of discussion.

The first is found in the Bible, when Christ overturned the tables of the money changers in the temple; declaring, “My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.” I have heard many different explanations for why Christ did that; with two being the most prominent. Some say that it was simply due to the fact that the money changers had set up shop on holy ground. The other explanation is that the money changers were robbing the people by exchanging the Roman currency for Sheckels at a rate far less than they were worth; pocketing the profit. In either case, Christ called them a den a thieves; a term that applies just as much today as it did back then. 

James Madison

Another instance where the term ‘money changers’ is found is in the Writings of Madison, Volume 2, Page 14, “History records that the “money changers” have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance.” It is this quote, more than the passage from the Bible, that is applicable to the subject matter of this essay; so keep it in the back of your mind as we move forward.

Our story begins in 1744, in the ghetto of Judengasse; located just outside what is now modern-day Frankfurt, Germany. It was there that a child was born to Amschel and Schönche Rothschild. They named their son, Mayer Amschel Rothschild. Mayer’s father, Amschel, was an Ashkenazi Jew whose great grandfather was Issac Elchanan Bacharach. Sometime, between the years 1577-1664 Bacharach adopted the name Rothschild; which is a shortening of zum rothen Schild; which can be translated to mean ‘Red Shield.’ By the time young Mayer was born, the family had been going by the name Rothschild for generations.

Mayer Amschel Rothschild

By the time Mayer was born his father, Amschel, was making a pretty good living for himself as a money change and trader of silk. In fact, Amschel had earned the patronage of the Prince of Hesse; which was as close to nobility one can get without actually being a noble. Yet is not Amschel I wish to discuss; it is his son Mayer; who would go on to establish the wealthiest banking dynasty the world has ever seen; with an estimated wealth of ranging from $20 trillion to $500 trillion; depending upon who you get your data from.

For the sake of discussion, let’s assume it is the lower figure. People today marvel at the wealth of men like Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Bill Gates; yet in comparison to the Rothschilds they are paupers. It would take roughly 200 men with the wealth of Bill Gates to equal the fortune amassed by the Rothschild Family. We hear about Gates, Bezos, and Musk because they are always making news; yet we rarely hear about the Rothschilds; unless your circle of friends happens to include a few conspiracy theorists like me.

I do not know if the Rothschilds have paid to keep their names out of the news, or if they own the media; thereby ensuring they do not make the headlines. In any case, they remain in the shadows; just were they like it; exercising their control and influence without worrying about the prying eyes of the public. In any case, if they are not the wealthiest family on the planet, they are right up there at the top of the dung heap, for lack of a better term.

Getting back to Mayer, when he was 13 he secured an apprenticeship with the prestigious firm owned by Simon Wolf Oppenheimer; where, over the course of the next six years Mayer learned a great deal about banking and finance from the firms owner. In 1763 Mayer took the knowledge he had learned with him to Frankfurt, to work alongside his brother; where he quickly rose to prominence. Soon, young Mayer had gained the position of Court Factor; also known as Court Jew.

As I’d never heard of a Court Factor, I had to look the term up. Essentially it is a banker of Jewish origin who lends money to, or handles the finances of the nobility. These Court Factors were often gained social privileges that were not granted to the common people; sometimes being granted titles of nobility themselves. So, it was quite the rags to riches story for the Rothschilds; rising out of the poverty of the Judengasse to mix with the nobility; often becoming nobles themselves.

Gutle Schnapper Rothschild

Sometime over the course of his life, Mayer married Gutle Schnapper; who bore him ten children; five boys and five girls. Although it was the sons that built the Rothschild Empire into what it is today, the daughters also tended to marry into prominent families; securing the Rothschilds a place among the elite. However, it was his sons, Amschel, Salomon, Nathan, Kalman, and Jacob who would carry on in their father’s footsteps; building the Rothschild Empire into what it is today; spreading their tentacles across all of Europe.

Amschel would stay in Frankfurt, and assume control of his fathers business when he passed away in 1812. In 1820, Salomon moved to Vienna to discuss negotiations for a loan with Prince Metternich, Austrian Minister for Foreign Affairs. Salomon stayed in Austria, establishing a Rothschild bank in Vienna. Kalman, who began calling himself Carl, moved to Naples, Italy, where another branch of the Rothschild empire was established. Jakob, who later changed his name to James, moved to Paris, where yet another branch of the Rothschild Dynasty was established. However, is the last remaining son, Nathan, that I wish to discuss in more detail.

At the age of 21, Nathan moved to England; settling in Manchester and began selling textiles and dabbling in the financial markets. He then relocated to London, where he made a fortune in the London stock markets.

There is an interesting story about how Nathan amassed his wealth. It is said that he employed a large number of agents, (spies for lack of a better word), who kept him abreast of affairs throughout Europe. When Napoleon was defeated at Waterloo, it is rumored that Nathan’s agents got word back to him days before the news arrived in London; allowing him to make a killing speculating on the battle in the London Stock Exchange. The first record of this rumor is found in Georges Marie Mathieu-Dairnvaell’s 1846 pamphlet, Edifying and Curious History of Rothschild the First, King of the Jews. Of course, Dairnvaell often went by the pen name of Satan; so you can form your own conclusions about the validity of his claims; I just thought I would share that with you.

Nathan Mayer Rothschild

Nathan eventually began dealing in gold bullion; further adding to his wealth. Stories about Nathan Rothschild abound; with people saying he was ruthless, cunning, and belligerent. The following is taken from a biography written about him,

Nathan almost burst out of Frankfurt, the first of his brothers to found a branch of the family firm, to settle in England in 1798, initially as a textile merchant in Manchester and subsequently as a London bill broker nonpareil. Nathan was a larger than life figure on the London exchanges, giving himself totally to his business, permitting no half measures. His brusqueness and off-handedness were legendary, and his tactics were examined and re-examined time and time again. No one knew quite how he became so supreme in his world, but all recognized the fact. His marriage to Hannah, daughter of Levi Barent Cohen, gave him a position in society and a range of business contacts which might have taken him years to achieve alone. Building on this foundation and wedding it to the Rothschild network, Nathan was credited by his brothers with securing for them the best opportunities to achieve their position in the world of finance.”

It is said that Nathan was so arrogant that he is claimed to have said, I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.” Of course, he was merely expanding upon something his father, Mayer, once said, Give me control of a nations money and I care not who makes its laws.”

Before I go any further, I need to explain what I mean when I refer to banks and bankers. I am not talking about the small financial institutions where you store your money, or take out a home or auto loan; I am talking about big banking houses that deal in sums of money that would make your head spin; funds that would make what you might win on a lottery ticket look like chump change in comparison. These are the banks/bankers who rule the world; for lack of a better description. They finance governments, and in so doing exert a great deal of control and influence over the politicians who depend upon them. They buy up companies and start wars for the profit they earn off the interest they make.

I know I am getting ahead of myself here, but I think it is important that people read what Sir Josiah Stamp, who once served as Director of the Bank of England, had to say:

Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them but leave them the power to create money, and, with the flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again… Take this great power away from them and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for then this would be a better and happier world to live in… But, if you want to continue to be a slave of the bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let the bankers continue to create money and control credit.”

So, you may begin to understand why I say that bankers are among the most unscrupulous people on the planet; the real scum of the earth!

Since the Rothschilds prefer to keep in the shadows, it is difficult to determine the structure and scope of their organization, but it has been said that there are about 8,000 members of the upper echelon; the elite of the elite. Although they no longer do this to the extent they used to, it is said that the Rothschilds only married into families that were already well established; to further increase their scope of power and influence. It is also said that their Bank of International Settlement, established in 1931, sits at the top of every bank on the planet; exercising controlling influence over every central bank on the planet; including the Bank of England and the Federal Reserve.

I will get into this in more detail later, but the Rothschilds are Luciferians; which essentially means, they worship Satan. To keep their ‘religion’ hidden, more palatable, they dub their religion Zionism. Yet they are claimed to engage in ritual abuse, pedophilia, and even the sacrifice of children. Although there is no irrefutable evidence to substantiate those claims, the recent news stories about Pizzagate, Jeffrey Epstein, and Ghislaine Maxwell lend a certain amount of credence to them. As I said, I will discuss that in greater detail in a later segment; so for the time being, let’s stay focused on the topic at hand.

If it is true that the Rothschilds own controlling influence over the central banks of the world, then that plays into the history behind the American Revolution. Although people do not think about it as often as they should, money is the grease that keeps the wheels of government/s turning. Without money governments could not do a damned thing; they could not wage war, they could not provide the people with benefits, and they could not fund the standing army they use to keep the people obedient to their authority. As the saying goes, ‘Money makes the world go round.’ Therefore, is it really that hard to believe that those who control the money, also control the world?

So how does all this apply to the American Revolution? Well, prior to the Revolution England and France had been engaged in an on again, off again, war with each other. During the 17th Century England had suffered one humiliating defeat after another at the hands of the French; culminating with their crushing defeat that the 1690 Battle of Beachy Head. King William III had had enough; deciding it was high time he rebuild his navy so that it could defeat the French. The problem was, his kingdom was essentially bankrupt, and no one would loan him the £1,200,000 he needed to do so.

So, what he did was he offered the bankers a deal; he would incorporate them under the name of the Governor and Company of the Bank of England. This bank would be given exclusive possession of the government’s monetary system; basically handing the British Government and economy to the bankers on a silver platter. Hence, the Bank of England was formed. Now this is where the 13 British Colonies, enter into the picture.

The Colonies belonged to the King of England; much like pieces of property might be owned by real estate moguls. They were his to do with as he pleased; including milking them dry in taxes; if need be. There is also the fact that the Colonies were a great source of raw materials; such as the Scotch Pines needed to build the masts for his navy. Therefore, it was in his best interests to defend them against attack by enemies of the realm; such as the French.

So, when England went to war against the French, in what is known as the Seven Years War, the Colonies found themselves fighting alongside the British to defeat the French; in what historians have called The French and Indian War. Of course, war means debt; which is why bankers like it so much; they profit off it no matter who comes out victorious. So, to pay off his debt, King George III decided to impose the Stamp Tax upon the Colonies; setting into motion a chain of events that would result in the Colonies declaring their independence in 1776.

Dr. Benjamin Franklin

That is the story we are taught in our history books, but there is more to it than that. A quarter century before the Colonies declared their independence, Ben Franklin wrote the following regarding the economic prosperity of the Colonies, “…it was impossible to find a happier and more prosperous population on the surface of the globe.” When Franklin travelled to England as ambassador for the Colonies, he was asked to explain how it was possible the Colonies enjoyed such prosperity; had no poor. His response was simple, and to the point, “That is simple. In the Colonies we issue our own money. It is called Colonial Scrip. We issue it in proper proportion to make the products pass easily from the producers to the consumers. In this manner, creating ourselves our own paper money, we control its purchasing power, and we have no interest to pay to no one.”

When the Bank of England heard about this, they pressured Parliament to pass a law putting an end to that nonsense; they couldn’t have the Colonies printing money they had no control over, could they? So it was that, in 1764, Parliament enacted the Currency Act. Franklin would later state that within a year of its passage, “…the conditions were so reversed that the era of prosperity ended, and a depression set in, to such an extent that the streets of the Colonies were lined with the unemployed.”

Now here is where it gets to the meat and potatoes of the matter. In his autobiography, Franklin would write, “The Colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters, had it not been the poverty caused by the bad influence of the English bankers on the Parliament: which has caused in the Colonies hatred of England, and the Revolutionary War.” So, one could say that the American Revolution was fought to free the Colonies of the controlling influence the Bank of England had over the British government.

We all know that America gained her independence. What we are not taught is how that independence from the clutches of central banks was short lived; which will be the topic of my next segment…
