                    "An Act To provide for the establishment of Federal reserve banks, to

Let me issue, and control a nation's money supply, and I care not who writes the laws.
Mayer Rothschild
Private Banker

President Andrew Jackson had refused to renew the "Second Bank of the United States" charter.

He said...

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government, the distress it had wantonly produced...are but premonitions of the fate that awaits the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution, or the establishment of another like it.
The Occult Technology of Power, p. 22, 1974

Every effort has been made by the Federal Reserve Board to conceal its power, but the truth is the Federal Reserve Board has usurped the Government of the United States.  It controls everything here and controls our foreign relations.  It makes and breaks governments at will.

Congressman Louis Mc Fadden
Collective Speeches p. 326

President Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act into law.

Then in 1919 he said...

I am a most unhappy man.  I have unwittingly ruined my country.  A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit.
We are no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.

The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes.
Felix Frankfurter
U.S. Supreme Court Justice

There is a group that get together internationally, and they sort of play god with our money.  They can't have a New World Order with only World Police and Military.  I think the financial system ultimately, is even more important than the guns.

I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.  Already they have raised up a moneyed aristocracy that has set the government at defiance.  The ussuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs.
Thomas Jefferson

"We shall have world Government, whether or not we like it.  The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent."
Paul Warburg

Council on Foreign Relations and architect of the Federal Reserve System, in an address to the Senate 2/17/1950

If the American people ever allow the banks to control the issuance of their currency...the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
Thomas Jefferson

[The Federal Reserve] is illegal and what we have given to this so-called agency is the authority to counterfeit money.

I sincerely believe the banking institutions having the issuing power of money, are more dangerious to liberty than standing armies.
Thomas Jefferson

Who Controls money, controls the world.
Henry Kissinger
