The Deadly Cost of Opposing the Federal Reserve System
The Titanic Tragedy: A Case of Murder for Financial Gain
In 1910, seven men gathered on Jekyll Island, off the coast of Georgia, USA, to plot the establishment of a new central bank, the Federal Reserve Bank, in order to seize control of money creation from the US government and put it in private hands. The Rockefeller banking dynasty was represented by Nelson Aldrich and Frank Vanderlip, while J.P. Morgan was represented by Henry Davidson, Charles Norton, and Benjamin Strong. Morgan and Paul Warburg represented Europe's Rothschild financial family. All of these men went to great lengths to hide their names and their heinous purpose, traveling incognito.
“Picture a party of the nation's greatest bankers stealing out of New York on a private railroad car under cover of darkness, stealthily riding hundreds of miles South, embarking on a mysterious launch, sneaking onto an island deserted by all but a few servants, living there a full week under such rigid secrecy that the names of not one of them was once mentioned, lest the servants learn the identity and disclose to the world this strangest, most secret expedition in the history of American finance. I am not romancing; I am giving to the world, for the first time, the real story of how the famous Aldrich currency report, the foundation of our new currency system, was written… The utmost secrecy was enjoined upon all. The public must not glean a hint of what was to be done. Senator Aldrich notified each one to go quietly into a private car, of which the railroad had received orders to draw up on an unfrequented platform. Off, the party set. New York's ubiquitous reporters had been foiled… Nelson (Aldrich) had confided to Henry, Frank, Paul and Piatt that he was to keep them locked up at Jekyll Island, out from the rest of the world, until they had evolved and compiled a scientific currency system for the United States, the real birth of the present Federal Reserve System, the plan done on Jekyll Island in the conference with Paul, Frank, and Henry… Warburg is the link that binds the Aldrich system and the present system together. He, more than any one man, has made the system possible as a working reality.” — Bertie Charles Forbes, Forbes Magazine, 1928
The Morgans, Warburgs, Rothschilds, and Rockefellers are intense rivals for short-term earnings, but are willing to commit to combined endeavors whenever required to further the larger “cause.” In 1913, they created the Federal Reserve Bank, the United States' national financial cartel. According to Edward Griffin in “The Creature from Jekyll Island” “… it tells a story of how bankers have lured politicians with easy money and end up controlling most of the world.”

These most powerful families are continuously working to undermine constitutional freedoms in America (and worldwide). At the beginning of the twentieth century, John Pierpoint (JP) Morgan controlled the White Star shipping line as well as a major part of the American banking and manufacturing industries. In 1908, he decided to construct a new class of luxury ships to allow the affluent to traverse the Atlantic in previously unimaginable opulence. The 'Olympic' class of ships was named after them, and construction of the gigantic ocean liners 'Olympic,' 'Titanic,' and 'Britannic' started in 1909 at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Ireland.
Unfortunately for Morgan and his personal bank account, this money-making endeavor did not go as planned. The Olympic, the first of the three sister-ships to be completed (followed by the Titanic and then the Britannic), was involved in a rather unfortunate accident caused by a heavy collision with the British Royal Navy cruiser, HMS Hawke, in September 1911 in Southampton Water off the south coast of England, a few weeks after its maiden voyage, and had to be extensively 'patched-up' before embarking on the return journey to Harland and Wolff's shipyard in Belfast.
