 A Fasces

The United States History course required in high school and that many of us had in college will have to be rewritten as truth is revealed.   I do not pretend to know the true history of our nation, but do enjoy looking at various aspects and pondering the meaning for us as American citizens.  Actually, I think I learned more real history during my genealogical research than I did having it as one of my double majors in college.

This article is offered as a resource to stimulate Americans, in particular, to take a look at the tangible evidence and make your decision about what feels right to you.  I’m simply providing a few snippets for you to play with.

In 1776, the 13 American colonies declared their independence from Great Britain.  We drew up a document describing the type of government the people desired.

Our Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.  http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/declaration_transcript.html

Following the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln made his speech at Gettysburg

 …that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.  http://www.abrahamlincolnonline.org/lincoln/speeches/gettysburg.htm


A Secret Government Infiltration Dashes the Wishes of the People

Americans desired a government OF the people, BY the people, FOR the people.

What we got was infiltration of the Secret Government/dark cabal.  The Bankers Manifesto of 1892 revealed the manner in which America was to be ruled.  (Note the word ruled … we will soon see evidence that America was to be ruled, not governed of the people, by the people, for the people.

 Bankers Manifesto of 1892

 This manifesto stated:  “We [the bankers] must proceed with caution and guard every move made, lower order of people are already showing signs of restless commotion. Prudence will therefore show a policy of apparently yielding to the popular will until our plans are so far consummated that we can declare our designs without fear of any organized resistance. The Farmers Alliance and Knights of Labor organizations in the United States should be carefully watched by our trusted men, and we must take immediate steps to control these organizations in our interest or disrupt them….

The courts must be called to our aid, debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible.

       When through the process of the law, the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of the government applied to a central power of imperial wealth under the control of the leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders.”

The Federal Reserve Act

On the night of November 22, 1910, a small group of surrogates of the most powerful bankers of the World met, under the veil of utmost secrecy, at specific little-used tracks of the railway station in Hoboken, New Jersey. Each of these secret banking agents had his own private railway car with new servants who would not recognize the identity of these men. The men traveled in silence to their secret destination, the elitist resort island off the coast of Georgia named Jekyll Island. Over the next few weeks these men would perpetrate, under the orders of their masters (men such as the Rothschild, Rockefeller and Morgan bankers) perhaps the most colossal and devastating fraud ever inflicted upon the American People.

This ultra-secret fraud is known as the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.  The Federal Reserve Act responded to the Public’s outcry for an end to concocted monetary crises that had robbed the entire American citizenry of much of their life’s earnings.  The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 concocted legislation, to be foisted upon the People’s Congress of the United States, that empowered and commissioned this secret cabal of World-dominant bankers to PRINT UNITED STATES CURRENCY, a usurpation of our Constitution’s explicit edict empowering ONLY THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT to print and coin currency.


The complete text of the Federal Reserve Act may be found at:  http://www.llsdc.org/attachments/files/105/FRA-LH-PL63-43.pdf


Bankers Manifesto of 1934

Capital must protect itself in every way, through combination and through legislation. Debts must be collected and loans and mortgages foreclosed as soon as possible. When through a process of law, the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and more easily governed by the strong arm of the law applied by the central power of wealth, under control of leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. This is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of capital to govern the world. By dividing the people we can get them to expand their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us except as teachers of the common herd. Thus by discrete action we can secure for ourselves what has been generally planned and successfully accomplished.”

The Bankers’ Manifesto ties in with the U.S. Senate Document No. 43, 73rd Congress, 1st Session (1934), which states: “The ultimate ownership of all property is in the State; individual so-called ‘ownership’ is only by virtue of Government, i.e., law, amounting to mere ‘user’ and use must be in acceptance with law and subordinate to the necessities of the State.”

The 2005 Supreme Court Ruling on Eminent Domain also ties into the above U.S. Senate Document.

2005 Supreme Court Ruling on Eminent Domain

The Supreme Court ruled yesterday that local governments may force property owners to sell out and make way for private economic development when officials decide it would benefit the public, even if the property is not blighted and the new project’s success is not guaranteed.   http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/06/23/AR2005062300783.html

The people’s desired type of government is nowhere to be found.  Re-read the Manifesto and note the actions to be taken in order to manipulate the people to fall into the Bankers’ trap:

1. Divide the people and get them to fight among themselves over issues that are of no concern to the Bankers.

2. Take the people’s property from them … consider them user only – look at a copy of the deed to your property (home) … you are listed as tenant, not owner.  This is why real estate taxes can be charged … it is your rent payment for use of your home.

3. Foreclose on mortgages as rapidly and legally as possible (“legal” = under the Commercial Code—to be distinguished from “constitutional” under the Constitution OF the united states of America)

Note what the American people are called:  “the lower order of people” … “the common people.”   What about our declaration that “all men are created equal”?

Have you found the government of the people, by the people, for the people yet?  The Secret Government, or the Corporation of the USA, are Rulers wielding power over the people.  Have you noticed how the conditions in America are outpicturing the Rulership of the Elite Bankers?

bronze-fasces-detailA Fascus

The Definitions of Fascism Are Reflected in the Rulership of the Secret Government

Fascism – A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.   (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/fascism)  Americans are controlled by fear of false flag terrorists’ attacks … we have willingly submitted to procedures designed to protect, i.e. control us.  At least, we are told the restrictions/rules are for our protection.  We meekly bow to our government’s efforts to protect us.  We dare not be patriotic and repeatedly proclaim what our rulers tell us—America is the greatest country in the world!  We dare not look at the facts, considering criticism unpatriotic.

Fascism – Any right-wing nationalist ideology or movement with an authoritarian and hierarchical structure that is fundamentally opposed to democracy and liberalism.  (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/fascism)

In 21st century America, the word liberalism is spit out of the mouth like is is deadly poison.  What is liberalism?  The online Free Dictionary defines liberalism – A political theory founded on the natural goodness of humans and the autonomy of the individual and favoring civil and political liberties, government by law with the consent of the governed, and protection from arbitrary authority.  http://www.thefreedictionary.com/liberalismLiberalismbelieving that government should be active in supporting social and political change.  (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/liberal)  People grow and change (mature) in their understanding of life, … in their concept of “Love one another,” … “Be ye kind to one another.”  Common Law (the Law on which America was founded) = “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”  Thus the willingness to change is implicit in creating a government of the people, by the people, for the people.


Fascism – The unchecked rule of a class of the privileged, or relatively rich, in power–a full-scale assault on poor and working people. Parliamentary institutions are usually set aside, or so demeaned as to be meaningless. (The Holocaust was legal). Elites issue direct orders, frequently through a populist leader. Wages, any social safety net, working hour laws, labor laws; all come under legal (and extra-legal) attack. The stick replaces the carrot.  (http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Fascism/What_Is_Fascism_Gibson.html

Fascism and capitalism are inseparable. There has never been a form of capital that was not built on a fascist base–from early British action against the Chartists to today’s varieties of imperialism. All major capitalist nations have fascist ties.

Hence, while fascism may not be the dominant form of capitalist government, elements of fascist ideology (biological determinism, rabid nationalism, etc.) and fascist organizations (sectors of the police, KKK, skinheads, etc.) are always present. No capitalist government has ever required a revolution to institute fascism.

Fascism does emerge in capitalist crises, the moments when the struggle for production reaches a point when the workers can no longer purchase the products they produce, a crisis of over-production and declining profits and/or an intense battle for cheaper labor, raw materials, and new markets; that is, war. (http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Fascism/What_Is_Fascism_Gibson.html)

The above definitions reveal the true nature of the Secret Government, i.e. the Corporation of the USA-called the Federal Government-the government that is now shut down (as of October 1, 2013).

As we frequently hear:  “The best way to keep a secret from the people is to place it in plain view.”  The sheeple (the term the secret government uses to refer to common Americans) will rarely look up … notice … and investigate the meaning of the openly displayed secret.

The fasces, a prominently displayed ancient Roman symbol of authority and power, confirms the sheeple theory.  The fasces is literally everywhere … have you checked it out?

bronze-fasces-detailA fasces signifies authority and power.

Definition of Fasces:

A bundle of rods and among them an ax with projecting blade borne before ancient Roman magistrates as a badge of authority.   (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fasces)

Word History: It is fitting that the name of an authoritarian political movement like Fascism, founded in 1919 by Benito Mussolini, should come from the name of a symbol of authority. The Italian name of the movement, fascismo, is derived from fascio, “bundle, (political) group,” but also refers to the movement’s emblem, the fasces, a bundle of rods bound around a projecting axe-head that was carried before an ancient Roman magistrate by an attendant as a symbol of authority and power.  (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/fascism)


How does the fasces relate to America?  Why are fasces displayed so prominently and profusely?  Are we looking at a symbol of a government of the people, by the people, for the people?

 Recognizing that the fasces is an ancient Roman symbol associated with a king or dictator and his/her authority/power over the people, I wonder why it plays such a major role in America.  Unless, of course, it symbolizes a hidden lie to the people placed in plain sight and thus, most easily kept a secret.
