Reads like a novel it's so scarey it's true

The Creature From Jeckyll Island, By G. Edward Griffin 'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.' Thomas Jefferson, our 3rd President I sit before you tonight with a great deal of concern for the future of our nation. In 1913 President Woodrow Wilson passed into law the Federal Reserve, and once this banking cartel(part private bank backed by government) came into being it brought with it the seeds of misery and totalitarianism. Griffin will tell you a tale that reads better than any fiction novel about a private network of Central banks that plan to enslave the world through a one world currency and government. He documents everything he brings before the reader with congressional records, U.N. documents, and the words of the international bankers themselves. By the end of this book you will see the Federal Reserve for what it really is: A mechanism of our republics destruction, a mechanism of taxation via the hidden tax inflation, and one of the greatest threats to both our liberty and freedom. I can not put into words the impact this information has had on me. A well researched and thorough book not only of our Federal Reserve system, but of all the torment that has and will someday come with it some of which you are starting to witness now. If you read only one book outside The Bible this year this should be it. 5 stars hands down.... 'They may pass a law to issue paper money, but twenty laws will not make the people receive it. Paper money is founded upon fraud and knavery.' George Mason in a letter to George Washington. 'The man who trades freedom for security does not deserve nor will he ever receive either.' Benjamin Franklin. 'For the love of money is the root for all kinds of evil.: 1 Timothy 6:10A

PURE BALONEY!!!

I read the book and agree with Griffin on how the Federal Reserve operates (for the most part). However, Griffin presents the most ridiculous views on why the Fed operates as it does. Read a book on economics 101 before you read this book on conspiracy--that way you wi...
I read the book and agree with Griffin on how the Federal Reserve operates (for the most part). However, Griffin presents the most ridiculous views on why the Fed operates as it does. Read a book on economics 101 before you read this book on conspiracy--that way you will be able to cut through the paranoia.

    Must Read for Everyone

    This is a totally engrossing and terrifying book! The minute I opened the pages I was hooked. Excellent writing. Explains the operations of the Fed and the economics in a very understandable way. Every American should read this book and then take steps to not only change the system but protect themselves as well. Mr. Griffing takes us on a history trip like no other right up to the present day. In fact, I am going to read it again and again. And, send it to all of my family.

    Really interesting, and important information.

    This excellent book is all about money. It was a real eye-opener for me. The history of the Federal Reserve and what it does in this country is scary. Along the way, the author goes thru a lot of money history, and I learned a great deal about the way a few men hold the strings to al the money operations in this country. The story is told sort of like a mystery. The last chapter is all too real, having been written in 1994. It predicts what will happen given the pattern set by the "cabal" of men running the show, and much of it has taken place. This is a fascinating learning experience, and it is also frightening to understand the implications presented.

    Must read to know how the large banks are protected and we the public pay their debt. The Federal Reserve is a national cartel structure designed to reduce competition and increase their profits.

    This books tells you how the Federal Reserve began in secret on Jekyll Island off Georgia coast by 7 men in November of 1910. These 7 men represent 1/4th of the total wealth of the entire world.Their goal was ro create money out nothing for lending and to get control of all banks to protect the big banks and they get the Federal government to pass the losses of the big banks to the taxpayers. also check out how the FDIC works within the same protection of these banks.

    Wake up America

    In short, incredible book. Very clear evidence presented in an incredible prose, very balanced in its delivery. The book claims that in your reading of this book, your view of world affairs will be changed. Quite a claim... but WOW.

    As an entrepreneur, I thought I was knowledgeable about this subject but I was wrong. I'm sure this book will create an intense emotional reaction.
