Joseph Farrell spans the ages in Babylon’s Banksters, tying together an ancient international class of what he terms “bullion brokers,” their involvement with humanity’s ancient temples (along with the predictive capabilities of the temples’ astrological functions), the control and suppression of technologies and ultimately the total usurpation of the money-issuing power of states and nations around the globe.
The Background Story
Babylon’s Banksters begins with a theoretical scenario in which two ancient civilizations pre-dating our historical eras destroyed each other in a great and encompassing final war. The devastation was so complete as to wipe out both of the civilizations’ technological capabilities.
Humanity’s remains were left to pick up the pieces and begin again from square one — while a select class of survivors kept shreds of the ancient wisdom alive. Sacred geometry and its powerful secrets were guarded in the temples and secret societies. Mystery schools were established to maintain the wisdom among a small class of adepts.
The story continues to suggest that those who have controlled this wisdom from ancient times are the predecessors, if not ancestors of those at the top of the financial pyramid today. And those at the top continue to use predictive cyclical patterns to their own enriching and often nefarious ends. But their aims are not simply to control the money supply, but to control the physics of the technologies that could, on the one hand, free humanity from this monetary control, and on the other, destroy us once again.
Ultimately, the story of these ancient bullion brokers and their progeny is their search to re-establish the technology that was lost following the theoretical great and final battle of pre-history.
The Power of Money
The most important factor in Farrell’s equation of physics, religion and finance is the control of the money supply. And the banksters will go to any length to ensure that control rests with them.
Farrell cites evidence that strongly suggests Presidents Lincoln, Garfield and Kennedy were all assassinated for their attempts to take the money-issuing power away from the privately controlled central bank — with the intention of issuing debt-free government created money.
Farrell traces evidence that central bankers have historically flooded the market with counterfeit bills whenever the U.S. has intended to oversee the issuance of its own currency — intending to devalue the non-central bank currency. Once devalued, the banksters then offer the central bank as a stabilizing solution.
This scheme of inflating a nation’s currency to induce instability, then offer the central banking system to stabilize the system has been, according to Farrell’s evidence, the method used by the international class of bullion brokers throughout history.
Astrology & Cyclical Trends
Following the Great Depression, economic analyst Edward Dewey and his associate Edwin Dakin were commissioned by President Herbert Hoover to find the cause of the economic downturn via statistical analysis.
Dewey and Dakin found that it’s not just the economy that rises and falls according to waves that resonate in predictable patterns. Everything in nature follows these same wave patterns.
Farrell details the story of Dewey and Dakin’s research and notes that when these waves hit their lows during certain astrological conjunctions, that’s when all hell breaks loose. Our worst economic depressions have apparently occurred in line with noteworthy astrological alignments. Farrell suggests that banksters have used these predictive elements — tying in known economic cycles with certain astrological conjunctions — to exacerbate downturns and take advantage of the crisis.
A Global Story
But this is not just an American story. It is a multi-headed beast and the banksters are not the only ones playing.
Farrell suggests that the American economic collapse of 2008 was a sneak attack of sorts by the Chinese. Farrell also notes that the Nazi party, although financed by the banksters during their rise to power, ultimately turned the relationship sour by its move to create state-issued debt-free money.
Even as far back as the Peloponnesian War, Farrell claims that Sparta was the sole holdout among a republic of Greek states that had already fallen into the hands of the international bankers’ central banks — and its debt-creating policy of money issuance.
Fast forward to the annual ultra-secretive Bildergerg Group meetings. Farrell suggests that the first assembly of the Bilderberg Group was ultimately a meeting of detente between the banksters and the fabulously wealthy post-war Nazis that had escaped to South America to resume research on advanced physics technology — things like the legendary anti-gravity, hyper dimensional Nazi “bell” device.
Tying It All Together
Farrell covers a lot of ground in a short amount of space and he undoubtedly has a brilliant mind, along with a healthy background on a variety of esoteric subjects. That brilliance and his vast knowledge spurs him to launch into a number of disparate directions.
However, this book is not meant to be a chronological tale of the international banksters through history. Rather, it is a detailed essay on where physics, astrology, ancient religion and alchemical transmutation tie into the banksters ability to create something out of nothing — in other words, their ability to transmutate something valueless like our existing fiat currency into something that not simply has value, but it has ultimately become the purpose of most of our lives.
That process is, in a sense, alchemical magic.
For those, like myself, who are interested to read further into the chronological story of who these banksters are and how they’ve influenced the course of our history, Farrell’s sources for this book are a treasure chest of information:
All of them future reads, for sure.
The Unseen Hand
by A. Ralph Epperson
I’m not one that needs to be convinced of a global New World Order conspiracy. I already know it exists. I see it and feel it creep into every aspect of our daily lives – into the corporate control of our political system, corporate control of the global food supply, the introduction of a menagerie of toxic chemicals into processed foods, the spraying of pesticides, the chemtrails, the mind control propaganda fed to us on television, and on and on. So I’m going into The Unseen Hand: An Introduction to the Conspiratorial View of History knowing full well that the Conspiracy already exists.
The Unseen Hand was not a book that was originally on my reading list. I had been ruing the demise of the local independent bookstores, and had been in a conversation with a business associate who shared my feelings. Although we both agreed that the Internet has brought us the ease of finding whatever books we choose, he made a point that without the local bookstore there is no more browsing the shelves. You have to know what you’re looking for, he contended, instead of stumbling upon some gem by chance because it shared the shelf of a particular choice topic. Although I didn’t agree one hundred percent with his sentiment, I did see his point. So it was with this background that I went into a local independent bookstore that I had only recently discovered existed. The bookstore is called Alias, and it is literally the last of its kind in my area.
Inside of Alias, I found they had a thickly stocked section of esoteric books – most of which I couldn’t afford. But I had to buy something. I had to support the local bookstore. And at 400+ pages, The Unseen Hand seemed like a pretty interesting trove of information.
Author A. Ralph Epperson makes it clear in the subtitle that this book is an “introduction.” It is rife with information, but it is an overview of his research into the research of others. And the important point there is that few of his sources are primary sources. So although the footnotes are 30 pages long, the pages are filled with non-primary sources – often American Opinion and The Review of the News (two publications published by the John Birch Society.) Nevertheless, the timeline in Unseen Hand spans from the founding of America to the 1980s (this edition was published in 1994). So, understandably, it’s a lot of conspiracy to cover.
The Point of View
Another important point to consider (when reading any book) is the point of view from which the author’s voice originates. It soon became clear to me that Epperson is a religious man, a Christian, whose views are shaped by what he sees as the Conspiracy’s goal to snuff out God and religion.
Epperson sees the Conspiracy as a communist/socialist plot to destroy individuality, property ownership, God and our republican form of government and replace it with a totalitarian form rule. He begins the book by explaining the freedom that this nation’s founding fathers wrote into the founding documents and then continues to examine how the “money power” has stealthily infiltrated the system, using its influence to control economic booms and busts, foment wars and create problems to which it then offers solutions that ultimately result in further consolidation of the Conspiracy’s power.
And he’s right.
From the American Revolution to the Civil War to the Federal Reserve, World Wars 1 & 2, the sweep of communism through Cuba and South America, the atomic bomb and the infiltration of our political system by groups such as the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission, Epperson details how the money power has undermined us, curtailed us and has kept us fighting amongst ourselves all the while crushing us under an oppressive system of ever-increasing debt.
World War II
I think among the more interesting points in the book are the events following World War II. America and its allies had just given everything they had to fight the good fight and keep fascist totalitarianism from sweeping through Europe. And then following the war, the Allies freely gave Russia the green light to sweep communist totalitarianism through Eastern Europe.
Some may view the Conspiracy as simply the invention of the paranoid. I don’t. I’ve investigated it enough to know that not only is it real, but it infects every aspects of the average sleepwalker’s life. And if you don’t have your eye on the Conspiracy, then you are a sleepwalker.
And when I say “every aspect” I mean every aspect. I don’t believe, as Epperson contends, that the Conspiracy means to destroy God and religion. Rather, it aims to control it, just as it aims to control everything else. The Conspiracy funds both sides of every war. It funds both sides of every issue. It most likely funded and had a back-door involvement in the recent Occupy movement – along with the Anonymous Hacker phenomenon. Since the Conspiracy prints our money and puts us in debt for its creation, it has a limitless supply of funds. And it uses them.
I do not believe, as Epperson contends, that the Conspiracy meant to supplant American democracy with communism. Rather, it meant to create and foment communism as the enemy of capitalism so we would be in a state of never-ending conflict. And as communism faded, the Conspiracy brought us terrorism.
Because we must always have an enemy to fight if they are to control us.
