mepire This international financial oligarchy uses the allegoric “Crown” as its symbol of power and has its headquarters in the ancient City of London, an area of acres; which strangely in all the vast expanse of theacres of Metropolitan London alone is not under the jurisdiction of the Metropolitan Police, but has its own private force of about 2, men, while its night population is under 9, This tiny area of a little over one square mile has in it the giant Bank of England, a privately owned institution; which as is further elaborated hereinafter is not subject to regulation by the British Parliament, and is in effect a sovereign world power.

Within the City are located also the Stock Exchange and many institutions of world-wide scope. The City carries on its business of local government with a fanciful display of pompous medieval ceremony and with its officers attired in grotesque ancient costumes.

Its voting power is rhe in secret guilds with names of long extinct crafts such as the Mercers, Grocers, Fishmongers, Skinners, Vintners, etc. All this trivial pomp and absurdity and horse-play seems to serve very well to blind the eyes of the public to the big things going on behind dmpire scenes; for the late Vincent Cartwright Vickers, em;ire Deputy-Lieutenant of this City, a f of the great British armament firm of Vickers, Ltd.


The Empire of the City: The Secret History of British Financial Power by E.C. Knuth

That the British people and the British Parliament have little to say in the foreign affairs of the British Empire, and that the people of the British Empire must fight when International Finance and the Rhe blow the trumpet, appears from the paean of praise of America by Andrew Carnegie, “Triumphant Democracy,” published in by that American super-industrialist and British newspaper publisher, in tje following words: This is the most pernicious, palpable effect flowing from the monarchial theory, for these men do this in ‘the king’s Name,’ who is in theory still a real monarch, although in reality only a convenient puppet, to be used by the cabinet at pleasure to suit their own needs.

Clapp, Professor of Economics at New York University, in his “Economic Aspects Of The War” published indeveloped the utterly boundless authority assumed by the “Crown” in its commands to the nations of the world through its “Order-in-Council,” used without restraint and without reference to existing usage or so-called International law, by making new International Law to fit any situation, as required.

The Balance of Power is a creation of this financial oligarchy and its purposes are as follows: To subsidize the “Most Favored Nations” with financial investments, and to permit them to acquire political advantages under the beneficent protection of the Sea-Power, to the disadvantage and at the expense of the nations being suppressed.

The ideology of the British Empire has been outlined in the past by various British statesmen ee specifically by Kf.

The modern version which has been broadened to include the United States as a principal in the British Empire was outlined by Cecil Rhodes about as follows: In the end Great Britain is to establish a power so overwhelming that wars must cease and the Millenium be realized.

Rhodes in the Pilgrims of Great Britain, often used by British statesmen in recent years as a off sounding board; and the Pilgrims of the United States, the latter founded in New York City on January 13,and listed in directories of secret societies with no indication or purpose.


One admitted purpose was “in creating in American students an attachment to the country from which they originally sprang.

The Pilgrims were founded in London July 24,four months after the death of Cecil Rhodes who had outlined an ideology of a secret society to work towards eventual British rule of all the world, and who had made particular provisions in his will designed to bring the United States among the countries “possessed by Great Britain. The dinner in honor of Lord Reading ciyy place at Sherry’s on October 1st, and was attended by representative men prominent in the banking, commercial and political life of the United States.

The magic number ofonce the symbol of reigning wealth and privilege, appears here in a new role. Men of millions here sway the destiny, the life or death of their fellow citizens, with ctiy organization which is subversive to the spirit and the letter of the Constitution of the United States, an organization of which not one in one thousand of their fellow citizens has ever heard.

The purpose of these men is completely interwoven with the dependence of their own invariably great fortunes on the operations of “The City,” citadel of International Finance.

Not only do these men collectively exert a planned influence of immense weight in utter secrecy, but they operate with the support of the immense funds provided by Cecil Rhodes and Andrew Carnegie.

The late Robert M. His statement brought forth a nation-wide storm of denunciation and ridicule, and even today any similar statement is invariably derided as “crackpot.
