|THE FEDERAL RESERVE: THE TITHE TO SATAN
by Amo Paul Bishop Roden
Satan, being Satan, has scarcely been content with a 10% tithe. As the Beatle's song says, "Be thankful I
don't take it all." The economic crisis that besets the world is the brainchild of Satan and he has used
deceit, intimidation and murder to bring the poor of the world to their knees.
Because this is meant to be a short article, I will not footnote my comments, instead I will make
statements followed by suggested web searches that will allow you to verify what I have said. There is a
suggested solution to our current economic crisis near the end of this web page.
The existence of a national bank in America has always been a source of controversy. Today many of the
dire predictions about a national banking system have been realized. Here is part of what our forefathers
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and
then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of
their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
(Thomas Jefferson, search Thomas Jefferson quotes money.) The banks have deprived thousands of
their homes in the past few years.
The charter of the First Bank of the US was not renewed in 1811. Another national bank was chartered for
20 years in 1816. Andrew Jackson was president from 1929 to 1937. After a struggle, Jackson destroyed
the national bank by vetoing its 1832 re-charter by Congress and by withdrawing US funds in 1833. In
1836, Jackson forced the closing of the Second Bank of the US.
Jackson said, "Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have
used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the
profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits
from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but
that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You
are a den of vipers and thieves." (Search Andrew Jackson quotes money.)
Andrew Jackson was the only president to pay off the national debt. He took control of the money supply
from the banks. Here is another quote. "If Congress has the right under the Constitution to issue paper
money, it was given to be used by themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations."
(Search Andrew Jackson quotes money.)
Jackson's attack on the national bank was followed by an 1835 attempt to assassinate him. As you will see,
this was only the beginning of violent attacks against presidents who opposed the control of our money
supply by national and international bankers.
After Jackson, a free banking policy allowed a multitude of banks to handle the capital requirements of
business. Abraham Lincoln went to these bankers to finance the Civil War. They offered him interest rates
of 24% to 36%. A friend, Colonel Dick Taylor of Chicago advised him to print his own money, and at
Lincoln's request, the government printed $450 million in "greenbacks," notes printed with green ink on
Lincoln was an opponent of the banking interests. "The government should create, issue and circulate all
the currency and credit needed to satisfy the spending power of the government and the buying power
of consumers..... The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of
Government, but it is the Government's greatest creative opportunity... The taxpayers will be saved
immense sums of interest, discounts and exchanges. The financing of all public enterprises, the
maintenance of stable government and ordered progress, and the conduct of the Treasury will become
matters of practical administration... Money will cease to be the master and become the servant of
humanity. Democracy will rise superior to the money power." (Search Lincoln and the money power.)
Abraham Lincoln survived the first two assassination attempts, but was assassinated shortly after his
reelection. The Civil War was over and he was in a position to continue controlling the government's
President Garfield became president in 1881. He was an opponent of the bankers as well, advocating a
currency based on gold and silver. “Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute
master of all industry and commerce…and when you realize that the entire system is very easily
controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods
of inflation and depression originate.” (Search James A. Garfield quotes money.)
Garfield was the second American President to be assassinated. He was shot in July, 1881, and died in
William McKinley became president in 1897, in his inaugural address he advocated government control of
money. "Our financial system needs some revision; our money is all good now, but its value must not
further be threatened. It should all be put upon an enduring basis, not subject to easy attack, nor its
stability to doubt or dispute. Our currency should continue under the supervision of the Government."
(Search William McKinley first inaugural address.)
Late in his first term, McKinley put the currency of the United States on the Gold Standard. His
administration was very successful. McKinley was the third president assassinated, he died in the first
year of his second term.
In June of 1963, President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order No. 11110 giving the US government
the power to issue currency, without going through the Federal Reserve. Kennedy's order gave the
Treasury the power "to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver
dollars in the Treasury." This meant that for every ounce of silver in the US Treasury's vault, the
government could introduce new money into circulation. In all, Kennedy brought nearly $4.3 billion in US
notes into circulation. (Search John F. Kennedy vs. Federal Reserve.)
Kennedy's policy of printing silver backed government notes was a challenge to the Federal Reserve,
who had control of the money supply from its inception in 1913. John F. Kennedy was the fourth president
assassinated, he died in November of 1963. Video tapes of his murder show the lead agents who
surrounded his car were pulled back from standard position just before he was shot.
Since Kennedy, no president has taken on the Federal reserve, even though the national debt has
become a heavy weight on the economy. In the 2009 fiscal year, the Treasury Department spent $383
billion on interest payments to the holders of the National Debt. (Search national debt interest.)
In addition to the death of presidents, congressmen have also died after challenging the Federal
Reserve. On May 23, 1933, Congressman, Louis T. McFadden, brought formal charges against the Board
of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank system. Among his comments was this.
"Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I
refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a
Government board, has cheated the Government of the United States and the people of the United
States out of enough money to pay the national debt... This evil institution has impoverished and ruined
the people of the United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It
has done this through the defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of
that law by the Federal Reserve Board, and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who
control it. Some people think the Federal Reserve banks are United States Government institutions. They
are not Government institutions. They are private credit monopolies which prey upon the people of the
United States." (Search Louis McFadden Federal Reserve.)
Since he had been Chairman of the Banking and Currency Commission for more than ten years McFadden
was a financial expert. He survived the first two attempts to kill him, which took place shortly after he
filed his charges. A third attempt was successful in 1936.
What is this Federal Reserve whose enemies are assassinated? It is the system that controls the money
supply in America by setting interest rates. The Federal Reserve is 12 privately owned banks, those stock
is owned by the international banking community. These are the reputed owners of the Federal Reserve:
Rothschild Bank of London
Rothschild Bank of Berlin
Warburg Bank of Hamburg
Warburg Bank of Amsterdam
Lazard Brothers of Paris
Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy
Chase Manhattan Bank of New York
Goldman, Sachs of New York
Lehman Brothers of New York
Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York
(There is a lot of web controversy about who owns the Federal Reserve, for more information on its
ownership, see No. 113, The Bankster's Myths, And Your Lost Prosperity.)
The rightful purpose of government is the care of its citizens. The purpose of banks is increasing the
wealth of their owners. These purposes are at war with one another. Because the Federal Reserve is
owned by international bankers, the American people are getting poorer and the bankers are getting
The Federal Reserve says its duties fall into four general areas:
Conducting the nation's monetary policy by influencing monetary and credit conditions in the economy in
pursuit of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates.
Supervising and regulating banking institutions to ensure the safety and soundness of the nation's
banking and financial system, and protect the credit rights of consumers.
Maintaining stability of the financial system and containing systemic risk that may arise in financial
Providing financial services to depository institutions, the US government, and foreign official
institutions, including playing a major role in operating the nation's payments system. (Federal Reserve
System - Wikipedia).
Instead of fulfilling these duties, the Federal Reserve has given us an enormous national debt, high
unemployment, inflation, bank failures, and home foreclosures. The very size of the national debt is a
major factor in the continuing recession. Meanwhile, last year the 1,011 billionaires of the world each
increased their wealth by an average of $500 million.
On top of all this, it appears to be extremely dangerous to try to free this country from the grip of the
international bankers. Nevertheless, only standing up to the international bankers will save America.
Either we get Satan's greedy hands out of our pockets, or we let Satan destroy this country's economics.
I call the Federal Reserve Satan's greedy hands because the Federal Reserve creates money out of air,
simply with an accounting entry and an order to the mint to print the required notes. Congress is also
authorized to do print money by the U.S. Constitution in Section 8, which reads in part, “Congress shall
have the power... 5: to coin money, regulate the value thereof...”
When Congress printed money, they absorbed any costs beyond those of the actual printing. When the
Federal Reserve prints money, they take the face value of the bills printed and add it to the National
Debt. Over 95% of every dollar added to the National Debt goes to pay unspecified “expenses” of the
Federal Reserve. Small wonder that they just keep issuing money year after year without demanding a
return of the principle. The interest on the inflated sum of the National Debt that the American people
have paid over the years is more that enough to keep the international bankers happy. In 2009, the
interest on the National Debt was 383 billion dollars.
Obviously over 95% expenses is ridiculous. The American people need an audit of the Federal Reserve to
determine what is a reasonable amount for the principle of the National Debt. Because a fair total debt
would greatly reduce the amount of interest paid to the international bankers, they have been
successfully unaudited for almost a hundred years.
Last year, Congressman Ron Paul had an amendment to audit the Federal Reserve added to the Financial
Reform Bill passed in the House of Representatives: HR 1207. The amendment to audit the Federal
Reserve was removed by the Senate under the leadership of Chris Dodd.
As for solutions: First, I propose that the US government stop catering to the international bankers and
audit the Federal reserve. Second, have Congress print enough money to pay the Federal Reserve off (if
they are actually owed anything) and to run the country. This would not be money based on debt as
issued by the Federal Reserve, but money based on the stability of the US government, perhaps partially
backed by gold and silver.
Third, I propose that the US government, relieved of the burden of national debt interest payments,
should become fiscally responsible and balance the budget. Particularly, they should stop being the
policeman to the world, because a balanced budget will not sustain the expense of unending wars.
With the world in continuing turmoil, a sure supply of food is an absolute necessity. Our farmers have
been at the mercy of the bankers and the commodities traders for years. The farmers are barely hanging
on, and all over the planet the poor are starving. So, fourth I propose that the American government offer
to buy food grains and soy beans at prices that will give the average farmer 20% profit, that is the average
cost of production plus 20%. The government should offer to sell grain for cost of purchase and storage
plus 20%. The unsold grains would be stored for domestic or international disaster and donated for
Finally, I propose that the US Government stop bailing out big industries. The economy is so bad that
people are afraid to buy their products. Support of the nation's farmers will slowly pull the nation out of
recession. The marginal farmers have been using old equipment and driving old trucks. They will need
Of course, a plan without implementation is useless, and I am old and under a continuous persecution for
both religious and political views. All I can do is write. But America has been very good to many of her
people. Perhaps, out of simple love and gratitude, some will take steps to preserve this great bastion of
The steps I suggest are these:
REGISTER TO VOTE! An increase in voter registrations would act as a warning to the government. There is
an election on Nov. 2, 2010 for 36 Senate seats and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives.
DO A LITTLE RESEARCH! Find out whose election you might effect. (Search 2010 elections.) E-mail them a
copy of this article with your comments.
LOOK UP THE WEB SITES OF THE CANDIDATES JUST BEFORE THE ELECTION! Are they in favor of getting
control of the Federal Reserve and the national debt by some reasonable plan? If so, vote for them.
IF NEITHER CANDIDATE HAS A PLAN, VOTE AGAINST THE INCUMBENT! They had the opportunity to solve
the problem and didn't act.
No one person, no matter how courageous, can take on the Federal Reserve and the national debt. But
you and people like you could bring forth a grassroots movement that could bring America back from the
brink of financial ruin. Do you love her enough to do your part?
