Revealing symbols – PART 2 – Top of the Pyramid

Part 1 in this series of essays explored the role of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in the world monetary policy. The BIS is on the tip of the top of the pyramid. The BIS has total legal immunity in exchange of the absolute financial power it has. It is a public limited company, completely independent of states or governments. Arguably, the BIS is the primary dictator of monetary policies conducted throughout the world. Please read the Part 1 first if you haven’t read it yet.

The Three Top Layers

Besides the BIS, there are theree tiers in the top of the pyramid which are the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the World Bank, both below the BIS in hierarchy. Beneath them, on the third layer, are the national central banks, the Federal Reserve System and the autonomous regions. What is issued by the BIS, flows down to the second, and third tier establishments, respectively. And from some, or all, of those, further down all the way to the… Bottom.  

The Rothschild Banking Family

The Rothschilds are an incredibly wealthy and have been involved in banking and other ventures for quite a while. The Rothschilds have been proposed to dominate the world’s money supply for more than two centuries. Yet many a people have never heard of the Rothschild banking dynasty, save for maybe in passing.

History of the Rothschilds

The rise of the family began with Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812),[1] who was not only the founder of The Rothschild Frankfurt Banking House, but also a financial adviser to the Landgraves of Hesse-Kassel (1801) as well as an agent for the British Government, and a financial supporter of the European countries in the Napoleonic wars.[2]

Mayer Amschel Rothschild had five sons. Each son expanded the Rothschild banking business in their own destinations:

  • Nathan Mayer Rothschild founded The London Banking House in 1809.[3]
  • James de Rothschild founded The Paris Banking House in 1812.[4]
  • Salomon von Rothschild founded The Vienna Banking House in 1820.[5
  • Carl von Rothschild founded The Naples Banking House in 1821.[6]
  • Amschel Mayer Rothschild continued to run The Frankfurt Banking House.[30]

Thus, the foundations for a European banking empire had been laid. Soon the Rothschild family financed the European countries, and dominated the European investment banking and brokerage, all in the course of the 19th century.

By 1815, Nathan Mayer Rothschild controlled the Bank of England and, allegedly, stated:

”I care not which puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule a kingdom over which the sun never sets. The man who controls Britain’s money supply controls Britain’s empire and I control Britain’s money supply.”[7]

This became the Rothschild maxim: Control the world’s money supply, control the world.

Gaining Control of America’s Money Supply

In 1791, the Rothschilds gained control and ascendancy over the American money markets through Alexander Hamilton – one of the “founding fathers” – and the family’s representative in George Washington’s cabinet. With Hamilton’s help the Rothschild family established a central bank in the United States called the First Bank of the United States. The bank received a 20-year charter from Congress in 1791.[9]

The continuum of the charter came under a threat in 1812 when the US Congress refused to renew it. In response to this, the Rothschilds threatened the US with a “disastrous war” with the United Kingdom. The Americans stood firm. The threat led to the second war of American Independence between the USA and the UK. The Rothschilds financed Britain’s war effort. When the war ended in 1815, the US economy was in ruins.

In 1816, the US Congress passed a bill authorizing a second central bank to be established, controlled by the Rothschilds, with a 20-year charter. This bank, called the Second Bank of America, gave the Rothschilds control over the US money supply once again.[10]

In 1823, the Rothschilds took over the financial operations of the Catholic Church, worldwide.[11]

In 1832, President Andrew Jackson successfully led the US Congress in reclaiming the control of fiscal policies from the Rothschild family control by refusing to renew the charter for the Second Bank of America.[12]

The US Congress did not stop the Rothchild banking. Instead of aiming at direct federal control, the Rothschilds focused on private enterprises. To name some, the Rothschilds financed John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company,[14] E. H. Harriman’s railroad empire,[15] and Andrew Carnegie’s steel empire[16] through their partner in New York, Jacob Schiff[17] of Kuhn, Loeb and Co.[18]

Federal Reserve Bank

In November 1910, six men – Nelson Aldrich, A. Piatt Andrew, Henry Davison, Arthur Shelton, Frank Vanderlip and Paul Warburg – met at a private Jekyll Island Club by the Atlantic coast in Georgia to compose a plan to reform the country’s banking system. The meeting and its purpose were closely guarded secrets, and the participants did not disclose having had the meeting until the 1930s. However, the plan drafted on the posh Jekyll Island Club laid the foundations for what eventually would become the Federal Reserve System.[26]

The plan to create the Federal Reserve System was opposed by Benjamin Guggenheim[27] and John Astor.[28] Sadly enough, they both died with the sinking of the Titanic.

On December 23, 1913, after the senators and congressmen had left Washington D.C. for Christmas, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act, relinquishing the financial control from the government of the federation to private entrepreneurs.[25]

This move virtually resulted in the Rothschilds finally establishing their central bank in the USA – the one we know under the name of ”Federal Reserve System”. This independent, non-federal, system of ”federal” banks (by state) regulate and control the money supply and thus, by and large, the monetary policy conducted in the USA.[19]

Although the Federal Reserve is overseen by a board of governors appointed by the US President, the Rothschild family still effectively has control of the bank. Even President Donald J. Trump was unable to break the Rothschild family’s economic grip and influence on the Federal Reserve System.[19]

Major Financier of Industrialization

The Rothschild family pioneered international wholesale finance during the industrialization of Europe and America. Rothschild banks financed railways around the world. They also financed the construction of the Suez Canal in Egypt, opened in 1869. In 1888, the Rothschild family capital also helped to found DeBeers, the world’s largest diamond mining company.

Taking Over the Media

Reuters is one of the world’s leading and oldest news agencies, operating in 94 countries in 20 languages. Ditto with the Associated Press. They, along with news outlets, such as the Washington Post, the New York Times, NBC and CBS are also under the sphere of influence of the Rothschild family.

BlackRock Inc. – Vanguard Inc.

BlackRock is an American asset management company. The company is the world’s largest asset manager, with some $9.5 trillion in assets under management as of 30 June 2021.[35]

Vanguard is another whopper. It is the world’s second largest asset management company with holdings of about $7 trillion.[36]

The thing with competition is that it is… Less fun than inbreeding. Which is why BlackRock owns a major chunk of Vanguard and, in return, Vanguard has incested its ass…

Invested a great deal of its assets to BlackRock. Together these dueling banjos manage holdings of some $17 trillion, give or take a few… Trillion.

Thousand billions, that is. Twelve zeros after the primary number.

It would be naïve to assume that the Rothschild banks are not involved in the world’s largest ”shadow banking” operation. Or – there is no need to guess. In 2002 BlackRock announced a strategic alliance with Rothschild Australia.[34]

Rothschild Projects in Recent History

In 1987, Edmond de Rothschild created the World Conservation Bank to gain control over land in third world countries, an amount which accounts for circa 30% of the world’s land area. The World Conservation Bank bought the debts of these countries in exchange for the land property handed over to the control of the bank.[20]

In 1992, Paul Volker, former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, became Chairman of the European banking group, J. Rothschild, Wolfensohn & Co.[21]

In 1995, the Rothschilds controlled an estimated 80% of the world’s uranium reserves, giving the family almost a monopoly on nuclear power.[22]

In 2001, only seven countries in the world – Afghanistan, Cuba, Libya, Sudan, North Korea – and China – did not have Rothschild-controlled central banks.

Until 5th of May 2004, the price of gold was fixed twice a day by the world’s largest bullion houses – Deutsche Bank, HSBC, Scotia-Mocatta and Societe Generale – at N.M. Rothschild & Sons in London.

In 2006, Edmond de Rothschild Banque, a subsidiary of the European Edmond de Rothschild family bank in France, was the first foreign bank to enter the vast Chinese banking market.

Edmond de Rothschild died aged 57

Inbred Family?

Royal families are infamous for their inbreeding. The Habsburg jaw is – crown example – of inbreeding. The Rothschild family did not escape this either. Mayer Amschel Rothschild denied his female descendants the right to inherit his wealth, leaving his female offspring, daughters and granddaughters, to seek out eligible, and wealthy, men to marry, including their cousins. Or uncles…[32]

The male offspring did not do any better. The youngest son of Mayer Amschel Rothschild, James de Rothschild married his niece. The couple had five children. All of them married, one of the five children married from outside the family, or at least somebody whose name wasn’t Rothchild. The family secrets are thus better kept within the ”family”.

The Rothschild family tree can be found here. Not atypical, but unfortunate – only the offspring of the male descendants has been recorded.

The Rothschild Coat of Arms

The Rothschilds first rose to the ranks of nobility in Austria, which allowed the use of the use of ”von” in their name, dating back to a Council Order in 1816 by Francis I of Austria, and in 1822 they were all granted the Austrian hereditary title of Freiherr (baron). Of the five brothers, James von Rothchild become “de Rothschild” having moved to France. The British branch of the family was elevated to nobility by Queen Victoria, who first granted the family the hereditary title of a baronet (1847), and later the hereditary peerage title of Baron Rothschild (1885).[37]

The arrowhead representing the family (five arrows – five sons) first appeared on the Austrian coat of arms in 1817. The five bundled arrows represent the five sons. The bundle represents strength. You may snap an arrow in two. It’s harder to snap a bundle of arrows.

Each coat of arms has been designed for an individual or family. Heraldry is among the oldest, most visual, and rigorously regulated form of identification in Europe.[38]

The coat of arms may evolve as the families unite, resulting in pieces of coat of arms of one family to merge with a part from the coat of arm of another family. While the symbolism behind the Rothschild coat of arms has been opened,[37] no reference has been made to the helmets (Arrows below).

I remembered having seen a feather-headed helmet somewhere. Then I remembered when. It was when I was doing an article on ”La Puta de EU – 1.8 billion corrupt vaccines” article, when I came across a similar helmet.

Each coat of arms is designed to identify a specific person, family or organization, and is designed to last forever”.

The helmet with three feathers, two blue feathers on both sides, and one white in the middle is similar to the coat of arms of von der Leyen family.[39]

Is it a coincidence or proof of something, remains unknown. I couldn’t find any reference to the von der Leyen family in the Rothschild family tree, or vice versa, so there is no proof of this. The Rothschild (and most) family trees do not list female members, or if they do, it is in just passing, and only the offspring of family males is recorded. Despite my best efforts, I could not find a helmet to match the coat of arms on the left among the thousands of different coats of arms that there are.

Heiko von der Leyen

Heiko von der Leyen received his doctorate degree in medicine in 1986 from the University of Hanover and subsequently specialized in cardiovascular gene therapy. Much to nobody’s surprise, he currently supplies pharmaceutical companies with Covid-19 mRNA technology through Orgenesis Inc.[40] Once these snake oil preparations have been manufactured, sort of, they must be distributed into various countries and continents, such as Europe.

Ursula von der Leyen

Ursula von der Leyen is Heiko von der Leyen’s wife – and his client. Ursula von der leyen is the head of the EU Commission and has been in charge of purchasing of mRNA injections for the entire Europe.

Ursula von der Leyen’s maiden name is Albrecht. The Albrecht family is one of the richest in the world, so chances of Ursula having been starving are – “slim”.[42] Yet, despite all the wealth, she seems to be above conflict of interests to gain more wealth, and no health. What other reasons might she have in order to go to politics than to protect and increase her wealth? Umm…?

Top of the Pyramid, Top of the World

The Rothschilds’ governance of the world’s financial markets continues. From the historical perspective if one needed to guess the families at the top of the pyramid, the Rothschild family is one. There are others, but none hardly as powerful as the Rothschilds. Names such as Morgan, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, and du Pont are regulars on these lists, and perhaps – von der Leyden / Albrecht are trending?

These families, what are their histories? Do they have a common history? Similarities? If they do, do they have common values as well? Is there common ground in terms of values; religious, moral, or other? Are there any other creeds but greed?

That is what we will be exploring in Part 3.
