Abraham_Lincoln_November_1863“The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces, as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw Light upon its crimes. “I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe… corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed.” – Abraham Lincoln, 1863

1862: Greenback. President Lincoln begins the printing of $450,000,000 worth of American currency. These bills are printed in green ink on the reverse side, in order to distinguish them from other bills in circulation, and are called, “Greenbacks.” These are printed at no interest to the Federal Government and are used to pay the troops and purchase their supplies. President Lincoln would be the last President to issue debt free United States notes, and on this subject he states, “The Government should create, issue and circulate all the currency and credit needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of Government, but it is in the Government’s greatest creative opportunity. By the adoption of these principles...the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity.” He also states, “We gave the people of this republic the greatest blessing they ever had, their own paper money to pay their own debts.” Source

Gerald.G.McGeer-Subsequent allegations that international bankers were responsible for President Lincoln’s assassination, would be made in the Canadian House of Commons, nearly seventy years later in 1934.

“The person who revealed this was a Canadian Attorney, Gerald G. McGeer. He had obtained evidence deleted from the public record provided to him by Secret Service Agents at the trial of John Wilkes Booth, after Booth’s alleged death. McGeer stated that it showed that John Wilkes Booth was a mercenary working for the international bankers. His speech would be reported in an article in the Vancouver Sun, dated, 2nd May 1934, which stated, “Abraham Lincoln, the murdered emancipator of the slaves, was assassinated through the machinations of a group representative of the International Bankers, who feared the United States President’s National Credit ambitions. “There was only one group in the world at that time who had any reason to desire the death of Lincoln. They were the men opposed to his national currency program and who had fought him throughout the whole Civil War on his policy of Greenback currency.” “Gerald G. McGeer also stated that Lincoln’s assassination was not purely because the International Bankers wanted to re-establish a central bank in America, but also because they wanted to base America’s currency on gold, which they of course controlled. They wanted to put America on a Gold Standard. This was in direct opposition to President Lincoln’s policy of issuing Greenbacks, based solely on the good faith and credit of the United States.

“The Vancouver Sun article also quoted Gerald G. McGeer with the following statement, “They were the men interested in the establishment of the Gold Standard and the right of the bankers to manage the currency and credit of every nation in the world. With Lincoln out of the way they were able to proceed with that plan and did proceed with it in the United States. Within eight years after Lincoln’s assassination, silver was demonetized and the Gold Standard system set up in the United States.”

Gen. Gordon Granger

“I understood from the meeting that the president was his subordinate in Masonry….”

Union Gen. Gordon Granger’s 1866 testimony before Judiciary Committee regarding the Scottish Rite, during Andrew Johnson’s impeachment. The man President Johnson was subordinate to was Confederate Gen. Albert PikeGen. Pike was wanted by the Union army on conspiracy charges, having fled to Canada after Lincoln’s assassination. He was then pardoned by Andrew Johnson, giving rise to charges of treason.

Albert Pike, Johnson’s masonic superior.

“But just when Lincoln’s nationalist money policies and our industrial strength overwhelmed the rebellion, President Lincoln was murdered. A dragnet went out for the Confederate secret service operators, accused of participation in the assassination. Albert Pike escaped and joined Jacob Thompson in Canada. Judah Benjamin fled to England, joining the exiled Robert Toombs and James Bulloch.

“In April 1866, a year after the murder of Abraham Lincoln, Albert Pike’s Supreme Council met in full costume inside the White House. There Lincoln’s successor President Andrew Johnson granted a pardon to Pike. The following year, the awed and grateful Johnson was granted advanced degrees 4 through 32 by the Scottish Rite. The Masons claim that Johnson’s Freemasonic involvement was an important reason why the pro-Reconstruction congressmen tried to impeach Johnson.”

In 1957 Ray A. Neff of Gibbsboro, New Jersey, walked into Leary’s bookshop in Philadelphia and purchased a faded, second-hand book for fifty cents. Unbeknownst to Neff, inside that dusty military journal was a profound and stunning confession from the grave of a Union General and traitor, Lafayette Baker.

Booth was not alone, and according to Gen Baker, did indeed survive.

And as late as 1977, the FBI, did in fact investigate the issue of JOHN WILKES BOOTH and his possible survival.  According to the FBI,

“These records contain correspondence dated 1922-23 of William J. Burns, former Director of the Bureau of Investigation, concerning a theory that Booth lived many years after the assassination of President Lincoln. Also included are the results of a 1948 examination by the FBI Laboratory of a boot said to be worn by Booth on the night of the assassination and a 1977 examination of a diary belonging to Booth.”

On January 23, 1923, William J. Burns, by then the acting director of the Department of Justice wrote

“I have gone over with considerable interest the volume entitled “The Escape and Suicide of John Wilkes Booth” by Finis L. Bates of Memphis, Tennessee…The work contains very strong evidence in support of the old belief that Booth did escape and live many years after the assassination of President Lincoln…”

In fear for his life, Gen. Baker wrote the aforementioned confession before he was fatally poisoned with arsenic in 1868. If someone today could forge this confession, he would have to learn two different ciphers, and then invent a time machine, because he would have to perform the deed no later than October 1872. The book itself is referred to in a Philadelphia probate hearing held October 14 and 15, 1872; when William Carter testified that Lafayette Baker gave him an English military journal in the days before he died, which Carter tried to decipher but couldn’t, even though he was familiar with codes from his days in the National Detective Police during the Civil War.

Carter also testified that he saw Baker writing his coded memoirs in the margins of numerous books; the same which were the subject of the hearing, and that Baker tried to give him about a dozen boxes of books and papers.

When John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln, he was already famous for playing in Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar”, and the allusion to Booth is obvious– he’s “one of the sons of Brutus”. Johnson, who was in possession of a letter from Booth before the assassination, is also one of the the “sons”.  Judas was Edwin Stanton– Lincoln’s Secretary of War, whom at the moment Lincoln died, actually did say “Now the ages have him and the nation now have I.”

Both diaries, Bakers and Booth’s, gave parallel accounts of the assassination. Both implicated, even boasted of a secret government council (the Scottish Rite) which in the interests of the British Crown has bound a nation, the United States of America, for over a century. (Gen. Baker’s coded diaries, incidentally, were written in the margins of a British military journal; Colburn’s United Service Magazine/Naval and Military Journal.)  The coded book, its messages written in a sliding cipher, revealed that the true killers were led by Lincoln’s most trusted military advisor in the Civil War: Edwin McMasters Stanton.

About seven years later, the modus operandi described in that book was revisited in the Kennedy assassination. The infamous Lincoln and Kennedy parallels, for instance, are uncanny until you realize it was almost a copycat murder. The Lincoln and Kennedy murders were both bipartisan coups; and many of the masterminds in both assassinations belonged to the same Scottish Rite.

This aforementioned international secret society, the largest, has its headquarters temple in Washington DC, and curiously, it presently houses the crypt of Confederate Gen. Albert Pike, a Tennessee Ku Klux Klan Chief Judicial Officer, Imperial Wizard and 33rd Degree Scottish Rite Sovereign Grand Commander.

Much like we would see in 1963 in the Kennedy assassination; in 1865 at least two newspapers would publish highly detailed stories of the Lincoln assassination several hours before it ever took place. Moreover, in 1868 Lafayette Baker would confess in his coded diary that at least three newspaper publishers were involved, through blood money and disinformation, in the plot to kill Lincoln. Thus we move from the publishers’ lucky premonition to outright foreknowledge and complicity. This, too, was a betrayal of the public’s trust which the mass media repeated in 1963, but continues to maintain– particularly through the New York Times (JFK) and the Los Angeles Times (RFK).

As Anton Chaitkin wrote in the New Republic:

“A striking instance of the Confederate ‘Lost Cause,’ persisting and haunting the present century, is to be seen in the attic of The New York Times.   Iphigenie Ochs married Arthur Hays Sulzberger in 1917. He succeeded her father Adolphe Ochs as publisher of The Times, which Mr. Ochs had bought in the 1890s. Adolphe Ochs and his father founded the “Baroness Erlanger” Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The hospital was named forJohn Slidell’s daughter who married the Confederacy’s chief financier Baron Emil Erlanger…Adolphe Ochs had married Iphigenie Wise, the daughter of B’nai B’rith’s Cincinnati leader Isaac Wise…”

In Kennedy’s case, intelligence agents in Russia read Soviet accounts of the Dallas ambush several hours before the hit took ever took place. By December, 1966, the KGB would finally determine Kennedy’s true murderer, and they concluded it was Lyndon Johnson.

When John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln, he was already famous for playing in Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar”, and the allusion to Booth is obvious– he’s “one of the sons of Brutus”. Johnson, who was in possession of a letter from Booth before the assassination, is also one of the the “sons”.  Judas was Edwin Stanton– Lincoln’s Secretary of War, whom at the moment Lincoln died, actually did say “Now the ages have him and the nation now have I.”
