Federal Reserve Directors: A Study of Corporate and Banking Influence

Published 1976
Chart 1 reveals the linear connection between the Rothschilds and the Bank of England, and the London banking houses which ultimately control the Federal Reserve Banks through their stockholdings of bank stock and their subsidiary firms in New York. The two principal Rothschild representatives in New York, J. P. Morgan Co., and Kuhn,Loeb & Co. were the firms which set up the Jekyll Island Conference at which the Federal Reserve Act was drafted, who directed the subsequent successful campaign to have the plan enacted into law by Congress, and who purchased the controlling amounts of stock in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 1914. These firms had their principal officers appointed to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and the Federal Advisory Council in 1914. In 1914 a few families (blood or business related) owning controlling stock in existing banks (such as in New York City) caused those banks to purchase controlling shares in the Federal Reserve regional banks. Examination of the charts and text in the House Banking Committee Staff Report of August, 1976 and the current stockholders list of the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks show this same family control.

Over the objection of a small handful of Senators Big Pharma couldn't buy, Andrew von Eschenbach, M.D, was confirmed to head the FDA.
By Byron J. Richards, CCN
December 11, 2006
Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson not only rolled over in their graves, they had a stake driven through their coffins by the departing 109th Congress. Big Pharma is now fully in charge of the FDA. Therapeutic nutrition is now marked for elimination from the free market. How did this happen? What does it all mean? Why did the House Democrats, at 3:06 A.M., while Americans slept, stab our people in the back? It is an ominous sign of things to come.
As the lame duck session drew to a close, it became clear that the Republican's scorched-earth policy was intended to make it difficult for the Democrats to get anything done next year. They are hoping to regain voter confidence by making Democrats look even worse than the Republican's near-total ineptitude, which is not a very tall order.
However, the Republicans and Democrats were able to agree on several key points regarding your health: health options for Americans should be curtailed and the American public should be subjected to massive drug experimentation. Thus, with little fanfare or reporting by the general media, the Destroy Effective Supplements and Poison Americans with Biotech Drugs Innovation Act of 2006 (S.666 and HR.1832), was passed in the middle of the night, just as the lame duck session came to a close.
Americans seem almost numb to the fact that Big Pharma kills several thousand of us every week. Kudos to the 109th Congress, those numbers will now dramatically rise.
Big Pharma Now Runs the FDA
Yes, the fox is now officially in charge of the henhouse. Over the objection of a small handful of Senators Big Pharma couldn't buy, Andrew von Eschenbach, M.D, was confirmed to head the FDA. His clearly stated agenda is, and always has been, speeding new and dangerous drugs onto the market with little testing for safety or effectiveness. Von Eschenbach would like to turn every doctor's office in America into a large clinical trial run by an FDA supercomputer, he would like a computer chip in your arm, and your DNA in his supercomputer – and if you don't comply you soon won't get medical services (read Fight for Your Health: Exposing the FDA's Betrayal of America). The experiment, known as the Critical Path Initiative, is now full steam ahead! Of course, when Americans are injured and killed, von Eschenbach is pushing heavily to make sure no one can sue for damages.
Andrew von Eschenbach is up to his eyeballs in Big Pharma connections. As director of the National Cancer Institute he perverted billions of taxpayer dollars away from solid science on desperately needed cancer research and into the coffers of his biotech and pharmaceutical pals, collectively known as C-Change. Now, he actually wants to turn part of the FDA into a drug company and even has a name for it, the Reagan-Udahl Center for Biomedical Research. Big Pharma co-sponsors, Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA) and Mike Enzi (R-MT), are attempting to fund his new FDA drug company with taxpayer money, which could easily be funneled through the National Cancer Institute, into the hands of his C-Change friends, and then used to pay for FDA drug approvals (S.3807). In other words, the American taxpayer will soon be slated to pay for the development of all these new biotech drugs, and then pay exorbitant drug prices for the "privilege" of being part of a human experiment.
As temporary head of the FDA, von Eschenbach proved he could adeptly cover for drug companies, even when they blatantly lied to the FDA! Such was the case with Trasylol, the Bayer heart bypass drug that needlessly kills and causes permanent kidney damage, which, thanks to von Eschenbach, is still on the market injuring Americans this holiday season.
Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) was hot and heavy on the von Eschenbach protection agenda for Big Pharma and had placed a hold on his nomination over von Eschenbach's flagrant violations of law and the FDA's cover-up of fraud relating to the Ketek antibiotic. Von Eschenbach's utter disdain of Congressional oversight should be a major concern to all Americans. On December 7, 2006, this is what Grassley had to say:
People ought to be ashamed of saying Dr. Andrew von Eschenbach has done a superb job in the position he is currently occupying [acting head of the FDA].…That is an insult….In my interactions with the Department of Health and Human Services and the FDA these last 8 months, I have seen a complete and utter disrespect for congressional authority and hence the law.…In Cedar Rapids, IA, I have a family that lost an 18-year-old because of a drug [Ketek] that was on the market then and which is not on the market now….It seems to me that if you are concerned about the safety of drugs, this information is important, and if you are going to have it covered up in the FDA, you aren't protecting the public.…This body [the Senate] should not walk hand in hand with the executive branch and sit idly by as instances of abuse and fraud continue to endanger the health and safety of American people.
Following these frank and chilling statements of fact, the opinions of Orrin Hatch (R-UT) were put forth to quell the concerns just raised:
To me it is simply unconscionable that the Food and Drug Administration, one of the best little agencies in Government, has gone leaderless for such a period of time…I know Dr. von Eschenbach well. He is a man of integrity….I urge my colleagues--no, I implore my colleagues--to do what is right and vote [for] this nomination….it is what the American people deserve.
Such a character endorsement, coming from a man at the top of Big Pharma's payout list, is hardly an encouragement to anyone. What is it that constitutes integrity in Hatch's mind? And just what is it that the American people deserve? These questions were answered for us by Grassley, in his follow-up testimony:
A vote for this nominee would be an endorsement of the stonewalling, but, more importantly, the disrespect for Congress he has shown by not cooperating with congressional oversight.…Under Dr. Von Eschenbach, the FDA has not only avoided transparency, it also has threatened those who are trying to desperately expose the truth….
This started back in January with Ketek and our getting involved in the oversight. There was fraud in this Ketek study….In June, Dr. Von Eschenbach held a meeting of FDA staff involving this drug I have been investigating, questioning how it was handled--Ketek. FDA employees who were present say that he used a lot of sports metaphors regarding being a "team player" and keeping opinions "inside the locker room." Basically, he said to not criticize the FDA outside the locker room, "outside the locker room" being his words. Apparently he stated that anyone who spoke outside the locker room might find themselves "off the team"…
This nominee held this meeting in the midst of this ongoing congressional investigation of this drug Ketek. He called the meeting after a number of critical reports in the media about the FDA's handling of Ketek. A number of FDA employees interviewed by the committee were offended by his comments, found them highly questionable, inappropriate, and potentially threatening. I don't think there was any "potential"' about it, they were meant to be threatening, and I agree with the employees.
Leaders of an agency should not hold a meeting to suggest that dissenters will be kicked off the team, particularly when the lives of American people are at stake, when drugs are going to be put on the line and they might not be safe. I can refer to the death of an 18-year-old in Cedar Rapids, IA. His is the type of action that shows the true stripes of the nominee….The way the Food and Drug Administration under this nominee has handled the investigation of Ketek shows the agency would like to keep its business secret.
This gives us a very clear understanding of how Hatch defines a "man of integrity."
The Rise of the Hatch-et-man
In the gospel according to Orrin Hatch (R-UT), the R now stands for regulation. It has been somewhat difficult for him taking large sums of money from the supplement industry and Big Pharma at the same time; however, after 30 years of Senate politicking Hatch-et-man has talking out of both sides of his mouth down to a science. And unfortunately for the supplement industry, he takes the most money from Big Pharma. He has even been able to completely forget that Republican core values center around less government regulation, not more - especially when such regulation is totally unnecessary.
Under the false guise of consumer safety, Hatch-et-man was clearly the driving force that ramrodded AER (Adverse Event Reporting) legislation for dietary supplements, without any testimony or hearings, through the Senate and the House. The net effect of the legislation will be to remove therapeutic nutritional supplements from the market, health options millions of Americans count on to remain well. This is a favor to Big Pharma, not the supplement industry.
Of course, Democrats love the smell of any legislation smacking of increased regulation of health care, thus they pounced on the bill, driving it through the House with Democrats voting 134-4 to pass it. This is the first of many bills the Democrats will endorse in the coming months to undermine the supplement industry. Leading the charge against health freedom will be the Big Pharma Democrat cartel. This group is composed of the vitamin-hating Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), along with Rep. John Dingell (D-MI), Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), Rep. Susan Davis (D-CA), Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY), Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA), and Senator Hilary Clinton (D-NY). These Big Pharma sponsors are sure to pile on in the coming months.
Now there are those out there who think Hatch-et-man is a friend of the supplement industry, based on his long ago support of DSHEA. Well times have change. Hatch-et-man wears a supplement industry suit and has a heart of Big Pharma gold. His veins are icy cold, filled with a synthetic FDA-approved blood.
Emboldened by his rise to power as a profit broker between Big Pharma, the FDA, and the supplement industry, Hatch-et-man actually started to publicly spill the beans. Maybe all the idiots in the supplement industry that either supported the AER legislation or did little or nothing to stop it will start to wake up.
In his December 6, 2006 Senate testimony he tells us that he has spoken to Andrew von Eschenbach to ensure that the FDA will more vigorously pursue supplement companies. His AER legislation was crafted with the help of over twenty meetings with the supplement-despising FDA. He pays special thanks to David Dorsey, a Senator Kennedy staffer, once a top FDA lawyer, who was instrumental in drafting the bill, and his own Bruce Artim who has now, but not surprisingly, moved on to a top position at Eli Lilly.
Yes, our wonderful Big Pharma-sponsored legislative system has now produced draconian supplement-regulating legislation that could easily obliterate natural therapeutic health options from planet earth, the true competition to Big Pharma profits.
In Part 2 of this report I will explain how Hatch-et-man accomplished the sell out of health options and health freedom for Americans, with special help from traitors within the supplement industry itself.

12/13/06 - Interview w/ former Boston Center Air Traffic Controller regarding 9/11 (Video)

Boston Center ATC tells the 9/11 Conspiracy Story.

Leahy to Chair Senate Judicial Committee

It always feels good to come back to Georgetown Law Center. I am grateful to this law school for nurturing my appreciation for the rule of law in a just and free society. I thank Dean Aleinikoff for his invitation and we wish his duties allowed him to be with us today, and I also appreciate the sponsorship of the Constitution Project, which is making a real difference in focusing public discourse on first principles and away from the partisan divisiveness of the last few years. I will not speak long because I know that the students among you, including a number of talented folks who have helped me — Chanda Betourney, Phil Toomajian, and Emily Dakin, to name a few — are in the throes of finals for your classes this semester. With the Congress finally adjourning early Saturday morning, I want to take this opportunity to look forward to the next Congress and some of the priorities that will help restore balance to our system and better protect the rights and serve the interests of the American people.
I came to the Senate during the ebb tide of Watergate and Vietnam. In my 32 years since then in the Senate, I have never seen a Congress so willfully derelict in its duties as during this Administration. This has been an unfortunate chapter in Congress’s history, a time when our Constitution was under assault, when our legal and human rights were weakened, when our privacy and other freedoms were eroded. This election was an intervention. The American people rose up to take away Congress’s rubber stamp, and to demand a new direction with more accountability.

The Senate Judiciary Committee will do its part. We will take an active role – and, I hope, a bipartisan role -- in charting a new course. I have enjoyed working closely with our current Chairman, Arlen Specter, who has accomplished much and has tried to accomplish even more, under difficult circumstances and with incredible stamina. We have a strong bond of friendship to build upon.

Investigative Reporter Breaks Israeli 9/11 Foreknowledge

Alex Jones was joined on air this week by investigative reporter Ed Haas to discuss an important story he has broken concerning direct evidence of Israeli prior knowledge of and possible complicity in the 9/11 attacks of 2001.
Haas details in his expose how in October 2000, approximately 11 months prior to September 11, 2001, a former Israeli Defense Force member and veteran of the Yom Kippur War overheard a conversation at the Gomel Chesed Cemetery, located in Newark, NJ., concerning the attacks and spoken in Hebrew between three men.
“The Americans will learn what it is to live with terrorists after the planes hit the twins in September.” Hass's contact said he heard one of the men say. After 11 months of desperately attempting to alert the authorities and being systematically ignored all along the line, the contact watched in horror as the attacks unfolded exactly as he had overheard.
Haas revealed on air that he had been asked by a reader to contact the source, who has asked to remain anonymous for fear of his own safety, as he had in depth information about prior knowledge of the attacks and no one would listen to him.
Haas stated:
"I approached this individual as if his story was BS, you know that's kind of how I had to approach it, is this guy might be a nutcase, let's follow through though and see if his story starts to have merit, and it did. I reached a point where I felt as though this guy has some information based on his documentation and it smells like more cover up to me."
The source also told Haas that one of the men he overheard expressed concerns regarding whether the upcoming presidential election (November 2000) between Bush / Cheney and Gore / Lieberman could impact the plans. Another man, he believed to be the most senior of the three, replied “Don’t worry, we have people in high places and no matter who gets elected, they will take care of everything.”
The source also reported to Haas that he overheard one of the three men say, “The Arabs are so stupid. They don’t even imagine that we are using them.”.
Could this be a reference to the 9/11 hijackers? It certainly fits other evidence that they, or their doubles/namesakes depending on which line you take, were intimately known to US intelligence and were being used as patsies.
Haas has received copies of letters that his contact had received from the FBI after emailing and calling to tell them he had important information to share. A first letter advised the source to contact the Newark FBI division which he did several times with no response. Upon writing to the FBI a second time, a further response informed the source that the FBI would not be able to do anything on his behalf.

Elevated Tritium Levels at the WTC

Traces of tritiated water (HTO) were detected at the World Trade Center (WTC) ground zero after the 9/11/01 terrorist attack. A method of ultralow-background liquid scintillation counting was used after distilling HTO from the samples. A water sample from the WTC sewer, collected on 9/13/01, contained 0.174 plus or minus 0.074 (2s) nCi/L of HTO. A split water sample, collected on 9/21/01 from the basement of WTC Building 6, contained 3.53 plus or minus 0.17 and 2.83 plus or minus 0.15 nCi/L, respectively. Several water and vegetation samples were analyzed from areas outside the ground zero, located in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and Kensico Reservoir. No HTO above the background was found in those samples. All these results are well below the levels of concern to human exposure.”
Notes to the Above
by Dr. Stefan Grossmann,, 5-19-6
1. Elevated tritium levels were already found as evidence for the mini-nuking of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995, see two reports by Sherman H. Skolnick:
The Secrets of Timothy McVeigh, 6-15-1
The Overthrow of the American Republic, Part 32, 4-21-3
People tend to forget, so we stress this for clarity.
2. Elevated tritium levels were again found in the smoldering ruins of the World Trade Center after alleged Arab terrorists flew alleged passenger planes into the towers in an alleged Muslim terror attack in the morning of 9-11-1. Government scientists actually published their data, see at the top of this page. No government, scientist or university has ever stated any doubt about the published findings.

The 9/11 Truth Movement's Dangers (CBS News)

According to a July poll conducted by Scripps News Service, one-third of Americans think the government either carried out the 9/11 attacks or intentionally allowed them to happen in order to provide a pretext for war in the Middle East. This is at once alarming and unsurprising. Alarming, because if tens of millions of Americans really believe their government was complicit in the murder of 3,000 of their fellow citizens, they seem remarkably sanguine about this fact. By and large, life continues as before, even though tens of millions of people apparently believe they are being governed by mass murderers. Unsurprising, because the government these Americans suspect of complicity in 9/11 has acquired a justified reputation for deception: weapons of mass destruction, secret prisons, illegal wiretapping. What else are they hiding? This pattern of deception has not only fed diffuse public cynicism but has provided an opening for alternate theories of 9/11 to flourish. As these theories — propounded by the so-called 9/11 Truth Movement — seep toward the edges of the mainstream, they have raised the specter of the return (if it ever left) of what Richard Hofstadter famously described as "the paranoid style in American politics." But the real danger posed by the Truth Movement isn't paranoia. Rather, the danger is that it will discredit and deform the salutary skepticism Americans increasingly show toward their leaders. The Truth Movement's recent growth can be largely attributed to the Internet-distributed documentary "Loose Change." A low-budget film produced by two 20-somethings that purports to debunk the official story of 9/11, it's been viewed over the Internet millions of times. Complementing "Loose Change" are the more highbrow offerings of a handful of writers and scholars, many of whom are associated with Scholars for 9/11 Truth. Two of these academics, retired theologian David Ray Griffin and retired Brigham Young University physics professor Steven Jones, have written books and articles that serve as the movement's canon. Videos of their lectures circulate among the burgeoning portions of the Internet devoted to the cause of the "truthers." A variety of groups have chapters across the country and organize conferences that draw hundreds. In the last election cycle, the website even produced a questionnaire with pointed inquiries for candidates, just like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce or the Sierra Club. The Truth Movement's relationship to the truth may be tenuous, but that it is a movement is no longer in doubt.
