We created that republic, at least in embryo, as a commitment. At that point, all of Europe was inspired by the American Revolution. The American Revolution was in the process of taking over Europe. France was first on the list. The whole group in France, which had been behind the American Revolution--supported it--wanted to the same thing in France. Throughout Germany, the leaders of Germany, of the Classical humanist tradition in Germany, were mobilized around the American Revolution, during the 1770s and 1780s.

People aspired to free Europe, from the systems of Europe. And to have a system in the nations of Europe, which corresponded to the intent of the Constitution of the United States.

That did not make everybody happy.

You had the head, the actual political controller, of Barings Bank and the British East India Company, Lord Shelburne, who from 1763 on, began to make major moves, in several directions, to try to stop the American Revolution, which was already seen by them, at that time. And once it had happened, when Shelburne was Prime Minister, in 1782 and 1783, he set into motion, through his agents in Switzerland and France--especially French- speaking Switzerland, especially around Geneva, Lausanne, and around Lyon in France--set into motion a cult, which became known as the Martinist freemasonic cult: of Cagliostro, of Mesmer, of Joseph de Maistre, and so forth. This cult.

This cult pre-orchestrated the French Revolution, from 1789 through the fall of Napoleon, through all phases. And it was controlled by British intelligence, under the direction of Lord Shelburne, then Jeremy Bentham, his key man, and associates.

For example: the siege of the Bastille, on July 14, 1789, was orchestrated by two British agents: Philippe Égalité and Jacques Necker. Why was it done? Because Bailly and Lafayette had led, in forming a Constitution, presented to the monarchy. The monarch had rejected it at first, but it was still on the table. The storming of the Bastille was a terrorist incident, run by synarchists, under the direction, and sponsorship, and control, of Lord Shelburne, from England, from London. Danton and Marat were agents of Shelburne's, and were personally trained and directed by Jeremy Bentham. And so forth, and so on.

What the synarchists did, and they outlined this conception in their writings of that, time and later-- they're called the "synarchists" now; but, they were called then, the "Martinists"--they laid out, what happened in the French Revolution, from 1789 to the fall of Napoleon. It was plan! It was a doctrine. It was an ideology: And they ran every step of the way; in concert with certain forces in Britain, around the British East India Company, and Barings Bank.

What was this for? This was to stop the spread of the American Revolution's idea in Europe! The American Republic was the greatest danger, to whose interests? The Martinists? Well, they're fascists--what we call fascist, today. These are your Hitlers; these are your monsters. These are your Nietzscheans.

But, who was behind them? Bankers. What kind of bankers? Venetian-style bankers. What kind of bankers, Venetian-style bankers: Private, family, merchant banks. Like the India Companies; those are the India Companies of Holland and Britain. Private banks, like Schlumberger interests, and similar kinds of interests-- which exist to the present day.

These banks were already penetrating the United States, with agents like Gallatin: an enemy agent, inside the government of the United States! Gallatin! A Swiss agent--actually a synarchist agent.

What did they decide? They said: "Never will we allow--we bankers: We will never allow the existence of a government, which places the authority of the state, above the interests of the bankers."

What do you have in Europe, today? What kind of a system do you have, as opposed to the Constitutional system, prior to the Federal Reserve Act: What you have in Europe, today, is essentially, the Anglo-Dutch liberal model of parliamentary government.

How does it work? It works on the basis of: You have a state apparatus, under a monarch, or some nominal President, which just keeps running as a state apparatus. You have a parliament, which can be dumped, any time you decide to orchestrate a crisis. A parliamentary government has no continuity; it has no assured continuity.

Then, you have a third branch of government, called, today, an "independent central banking system." The independent central banking system controls the emission of currency; controls national credit; and, any time the government displeases it, it uses its power to orchestrate and overthrow of the government.

So, the issue, today, is to rid the world, of that vestige of the Anglo-Dutch liberal parliamentary model. And, to return to what the American Constitution prescribed and intended, which we were not able to carry out fully, because we were isolated, by these developments in Europe of that period, the Napoleonic period and afterward; and because we had internal problems we could not resolve.

It was not until Lincoln brought this nation to victory over slavery, that something resembling the actual intention of the Constitution came into being. And even that was in trouble. In the meantime, within our own country, we had a banking interest, centered in Boston, centered in New York City, which had the same kind of mentality, and often direct connections to, what we call the synarchist bankers of Europe. That has been our problem.

Now we come to a point, that the entire system is collapsing; the entire international financial system is collapsing--just as the Versailles system was collapsing, in the 1920s, but this time, it's much more severe, much deeper as far as Europe and the Americas as concerned, at least--and Africa. Therefore, the amount of debt which is outstanding, financial debt in the system, could never be paid by the existing nations. Never!

So, what does that mean? That means, that nations have the choice of either telling the financial interests, to eat their losses: because the care for the people and the nation comes first pplause]. The power of sovereign government, is the care the people and the nation. But, if government runs a bankruptcy receivership operation, which it must do now, with the entire IMF system, with the Federal Reserve System, and so forth, then what happens to these powerful bankers? We pay what has to be paid, first. We meet the standard of the general welfare and posterity. We exert our sovereignty, that no external authority, including bankers, can subvert our sovereignty; can destroy the general welfare of our people from outside; can damage our posterity.

What's the bankers' reaction? Well, some bankers will say, "All right. I'm just a banker. Put me through reorganization. I'll stay in business. I'll work for you. I'll get back in business." But others: "No."

And that's what this is.

You have powerful, private banking interests, of a family, merchant-banking style, who operate as a syndicate, like a Venetian oligarchy, Venetian financier oligarchy: They were behind the synarchist operation, or the Martinist operation, which was the French Revolution. This is the organization--exactly the same organization--in Europe, which put Mussolini into power in 1921; Hitler into power, 1933; Franco into power; and so forth and so on.

This was agency which was determined to destroy the United States in 1940! This is our enemy! That was our enemy, then. That is our enemy, today!

The difference today is, the leadership of the enemy, at that time, came from Europe, which was determined to destroy the United States. The problem today is, the leadership of that operation is in the United States. And, its puppet, is the Bush Administration. Its puppet is those in the Democratic Party National Committee, who are the instruments of this kind of policy.

And, if you go by that standard--you say, "Here we're in a great crisis, great financial crisis. Worse than Versailles; worse that the collapse of the Versailles system. We have one choice: If we make the choice, of defending the sovereignty of nations; of promoting the general welfare of each and all nations; of promoting the interests of posterity of each and all nations; if we come to treaty agreements and cooperation, in taking over the IMF and so forth, under these terms: Then, we shall survive." We can not create instant prosperity out of this great poverty. But, we can take the road up, as Roosevelt led the road up, in 1933, in March of '33 on. We can do that. We can give optimism and a future to our children and grandchildren. And, that's about the best we can do. And survive, in the meantime.
