Wars are Not Fought for Democracy;
They are Fought for the Preservation of the Money System
There's something you probably don't know that you probably
should know. The people who sabotaged the founding of the
American republic are the same ones who are sabotaging it now.
Written in 1940 in the months before World War II broke out,
Lightning Over the Treasury Building is a concise and compact
history of banking, clear as a bell in a hundred pages about the
disease that is slowly killing something we never dreamed would
be destroyed that farfetched experiment in freedom known as the
once-beloved but now-feared United States of America.
You could make an interesting chart of three presidential
assassinations (1865-1881-1900) as being a roadmap that tracks
the incursion of control by the Rothschilds into the U.S.
banking system, culminating in the Great Panic of 1893, which
led up to the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913, which is
when the United States became totally subservient to the Jewish
bankers in London. Abraham "Lincoln Greenbacks" earned him a
bullet in Ford’s theater, James Garfield's comment about the
volume of money got him a visit from a would-be assassin but he
was finished off by doctors, and William McKinley was gunned
down while shaking hands with citizens by a man sent from the
Jewish-dominated Workingmans Hall in Brooklyn (a kosher mafia
neighborhood which was to send Trotsky's terror troops to Moscow
Author John R. Elsom is said to be a pseudonym for a group of
men in Washington who were primarily focused on the poverty that
had gripped the U.S. for more than a decade after the start of
the Great Depression. It's chilling to realize the authors
were not expecting a war, but when they wrote this book, FDR had
not yet engineered the inside job fiasco of Pearl Harbor.
President Garfield's tumultuous quote was this: "Whoever
controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master
of industry and commerce." Today, most readers will not
comprehend the validity of this observation because they have
been taught not to recognize that it has been the sudden,
unannounced reduction in the VOLUME of the money supply that
even to this day enables the rich to foreclose on struggling
farmers and the poor among us to regularly lose all our
The whole narrative of Lightning Over the Treasury Building aims
to chronicle the stunning cuts in the money supply that ruined
the lives of millions of Americans by poverty. Instead that
money was used as the fuel that runs the engine of death which
has been so profitable for the banks down through time.
Listen to what the bankers said in 1935.
The Banker's Manifesto
"Capital must protect itself in every way, through combination
and through legislation. Debts must be collected and mortgages
foreclosed as soon as possible. When through a process of law
the common people have lost their homes, they will be more
tractable and more easily governed by the strong arm of the law,
applied by the central power of wealth, under control of leading
People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders.
This is well known among our principal men now engaged in
forming an imperialism of capital to govern the world. By
dividing the people we can get them to expend their energies in
fighting over questions of no importance to us except as
teachers of the common herd. Thus by discreet action we can
secure for ourselves what has been generally planned and

circulation among leading bankers only ” taken from the Civil
Servants Year Book, "The Organizer" of January, and the "New
American" of February 1934.
FDR and Trump: Warmongering brothers
While campaigning for his first term as president in 1932,
Franklin Delano Roosevelt stole a sales pitch from Jesus when he
promised to drive the moneychangers from the temple. In keeping
with a tradition among winning presidential candidates begun
long before and still running today, no further mention of this
vow was heard during FDR's 12 years in office.
Appealing to patriotic Americans has always been a surefire hit
during presidential campaigns. This same strategy calls for the
disappearance of such sentiments once the election is won. Far
from driving the moneychangers from their impregnable financial
fortress, Roosevelt made more money for the Jews than any of his
predecessors by almost single-handedly coordinating the start of
World War II. (Reference Mark Weber's story on the Polish
Eighty-six years later Donald Trump won his election in 2018 by
convincing white patriots he was on their side. A few blinks of
the eye later, Trump is Israel's public relations director,
enlisting the fake Muslims in Saudi Arabia and selling their
sadistic sheik billions in state-of-the-art weaponry to aim at
Iran. The more things change, the more they remain the same.
Will the new Hiroshima be in Tehran or Sebastopol?
Pauperization through interest
"It is surely quite obvious that a money system based on debt
will ultimately ruin any nation and every person in the nation
except the money lender," Elsom wrote. But the golden nugget
here: the only way to get money into circulation is to borrow
it. When the people become too poor to borrow it, the government
steps in and borrows it. This is the first of many bites the
bankers take out of your dollar. It is what they charge you to
use your own money.
The bankers had another reason to want to shrink the money
supply, a slightly darker reason which this snip from the New
York World reveals.
"American labor must make up its mind henceforth not to be so
much better off than European labor. Men must be content to work
for less wages. In this way the working man will be nearer that
station in life to which it has pleased God to call him."
The parasitical banking fraternity, which makes the largest
profits of any class of business, also pays the lowest wages to
their employees. They like to see 300 men clamoring for every
job [and they donā€™t mind] seeing long lines of half starved
men at their factory gates, seeking employment, each morning.
Garfield's warning was adequately verified by the statistics
which show a collapse of the per capita currency rate which
began at $50.46 in 1863 and by subtle confiscations impoverished
all but the richest Americans down to $11.23 by 1878, and later
down to 6.67 by 1887.
"During the 14 years in which money was being destroyed by the
bill "To Reform Coinage and Mint Laws" . . . there were almost
150,000 business failures . . . with the resultant profits to
the bankers, through the acquiring of those properties, together
with a proportionately greater number of farms and homes."
The sly move to demonetize silver probably was the biggest
single chunk out of the American fortune that was taken by the
bankers in their drive to reduce everyone to slave status. The
move was triggered by the Rothschilds in England, who owned a
lot of gold but not much silver. This initially unnoticed piece
of legislation in 1882 during the U.S. Grant administration
turned out to be a time bomb that went off during the Panic of
1893, when the banks "retired" silver certificates and Treasury
It was the order to all the bankers that really hit the nation
in the gut: "You will at once retire one third of your
circulation and call one half of your patrons” especially among
influential business men. This meant that the powers that be
were ordering financial Armageddon for even the most prosperous
of Americans, and because they stated it openly there was no way
to even oppose the decision.
Once again, the bankers had put a gun to the heads of ordinary
Americans. Even then, it was business as usual, and still is.
Why borrow money?
"We were not foolish enough to try to make a currency coverage
of gold of which we had none, but for every mark that was issued
we required an equivalent of a mark's worth of work or goods
-- Adolf Hitler
"Little pieces of paper made Germany in six years a nation whose
power challenges the world," Elsom wrote, "because those little
pieces of paper put people to work, gave them food, unified them
into a phalanx behind their leaders, and built an empire whose
boundaries if they continue to extend will encompass our earth."
"Why can't American statesmanship take this lesson to heart?"
Elsom asked. Perhaps this was the salient question of the 20th
This is but one of many questions Elsom addressed about the
funny business involved with the creation of our money.
Why notes instead of bills?
Elsom once wrote to the Assistant Secretary of the Treasury:
Will you be so good as to explain to me why it is necessary to
issue United States Bonds instead of United States notes? . . .
millions of American citizens asking the question why congress
does not us the power vested in it by Artcle 1, Section 8, Part
5 of the Constitution to "coin money and regulate the value
This is the fateful question that has yet to be forthrightly
answered up until the present moment.
The negative effects of this practice?"
Bankers have stolen from Congress the right to issue and
regulate the value of money. It has given us a system of
legalized banditry unparalleled in the history of nations,"
It has allowed a small group of Internationalists (a well known
synonym for Jews and their goy lackeys) to dominate all
legislatures. It has made every citizen a slave of
money-creating bond-holding bankers. The entire national debt
would never have happened if Congress had issued the money
rather than borrowed it.
Among the ten other aspects Elsom enumerates,
It has caused the domination of our School System by the money
monopolists, in the matter of Economics, so that college
graduates do not know that the Government does not issue our
principle medium of exchange -- that the Federal Reserve is not
a Government Bank" that the Government gave, without charge, to
the Federal Reserve Bank, 7/9ths of the Nation's hoard of
Gold -- that our present economy is unconstitutional -- or that
Wars are not fought for the preservation of Democracy, but
rather for the preservation of the Money System, collection of
European investments and to increase the National Debt.
But looking on the bright side . . .
If Congress live up to its Constitutional mandate and coined its
own money, the benefits to the people would be immediate and
Firstly, the principle motive for war will be removed.
Second, there will be no future debt problem once Interest free
Constitutional Money is used for government business.
It will reduce taxation from 50 to 75 percent or perhaps erase
taxation entirely by ending the payment of interest on
unconstitutionally issued and unnecessary Government Bonds.
It will forever end inflation and deflation . . . by which the
Banking System has engineered the exploitation of the people so
that the real wealth of the nation could be gathered to
It will solve the unemployment crisis immediately.
Among 15 ways Elsom lists government retaking control of its own
money supply these two stand out:
It will end all un-American activities by rescuing the people of
the nation from the grip of the fountain-pen money-creators,
bond holders, interest collectors and mortgage foreclosers" the
present wreckers of the republic" and by making American a
Nation of happy, prosperous people. Every citizen and every
stranger within our gates will be so completely sold on the
"American way" that no other way will be thought of.
. . . and . . .
It will dethrone Gold as the Nation's god and make money the
servant instead of the master of the people. The Rule of Gold
will be superseded by The Golden Rule and true spiritual values
will gain the ascendancy over material values. Thus the Kingdom
of God will be extended on earth.
Countdown to oblivion
Our leaders, rather than helping us, have been slowly bleeding
us to death, preaching noble thoughts but collecting Jewish
money under the table and safekeeping it next to Mitt Romney's
store of cash in the Cayman islands.
As far as I'm concerned, any society run by bankers will be
destroyed by its own greed. Bankers may never be entrusted with
the moral direction of civilization. It is a false sense of
necessities they create. We have reached such an advanced point
of deterioration that only the generosity of nature can save us
now, and that is a matter for the spiritual realm. To avoid the
spiritual realm, as the world is doing now, guarantees disaster
Lightning Over the Treasury Building was written at a time when
forthright opposition to the criminal Jews and their control of
the money supply was still a mainstream conversation topic. This
relevant speech was made in the same era.
Father Coughlin "Drive the money-changers from the temple!" 2:35
"Why? Oh! Why? Will someone please stand and state why the
Federal Reserve System should not be taken over by the
Government and the interest on our borrowings from ourselves
paid to ourselves instead of to the money barons?" Elsom asked.
Instead of having a $500 billion debt (this was 1940, remember)
we would have a $100 billion surplus, which gives you some idea
of both how much the bankers have stolen from us and how much we
would make if we paid ourselves for our money instead of giving
our hard-earned cash to the money barons, who manage to stay
rich by fomenting wars and getting us to kill our own children.
That calculates out to today's $21 trillion debt could have been
our $4 trillion surplus but for the greed of the bankers and the
politicians they bought.
