The British Counterfeited The Continental  

From The Lost Science of Money. pages 380-1:  

Counterfeiting was standard British procedure and used as a military weapon. When they earlier fought the Dutch over possession of New Amsterdam (New York) the British had even flooded the colony with Indian wampum, which the Dutch were using for money….

...Benjamin Franklin, who had been one of the best printers in America, noted: "The artists they employed performed so well that immense quanti­ties of these counterfeits which issued from the British Government in New York, were circulated among the inhabitants of all the states, before the fraud was detected. This operated significantly in depreciating the whole mass."

President Lincoln Issued The Greenback

Psychopaths and Sociopaths.  

  • Laura Knight-Jadczyk wrote a book, Almost Human, A Stunning Look At The Metaphysics Of Evil, in which she describes the problem of psychopaths and sociopaths who become the financial, political and religious leaders precisely because they have no conscience.  Here is the Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Wave-Almost-Human-Stunning-Metaphysics/dp/1897244487

  • Additionally,  Filley, Christopher M. MD; Kletenik, Isaiah MD; Churchland, Patricia S. PhD published a study in Cognitive and Behavioral Neurology ( 2020 Dec;33(4):304-307),  “Morality and the Brain: The Right Hemisphere and Doing Right” . (See https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33264160/).

  • Their study states that Psychopathy and Sociopathy result from an impaired or missing connection to the right hemisphere of the Brain which is the seat of morality, i.e. a rare abnormality, not an inherent characteristic. 

  • The following video is a compilation of a series of interviews given by Ronald Bernard, a top Dutch Banker who exposed crimes of the elites, particularly in the banking industry.  In this series of interviews, Bernard exposed how elites orchestrated wars, crashed national economies, and used child sacrifices to blackmail its members. https://www.bitchute.com/video/PTV9UqAvYUSp/
