Elias Alias on “Sold Souls”: A Letter From Your Editor

An open letter from your friendly editor:


Dear Readers, Members, Friends;

Today I would like to invite you to join me in a relaxful mood. I feel like I’ve been in the trenches at the front lines in the fight for freedom in America for some number of years. Been in the thick of things, done a lot of traveling, dodged a lot of flak. So I’m going to take a moment for reflection, a way to relax myself, and I’m inviting you to share the moment with me. Allow me to set up a bit of context for something which gives me joy this morning.

The Context

Those of us who are awake enough to notice already know that “the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls“.  Those words from the song, “The Sound of Silence” denote a mood which matches a perception of any Soul who has sold itself, or a nation which has sold its Soul. The prophets have indeed written, and in some ways our situation brings to mind a passage by John Ashbery in his poem, “Self Portrait In A Convex Mirror” —

The soul has to stay where it is,
Even though restless, hearing raindrops at the pane,
The sighing of autumn leaves thrashed by the wind,
Longing to be free, outside, but it must stay
Posing in this place. It must move
As little as possible. This is what the portrait says.
But there is in that gaze a combination
Of tenderness, amusement and regret, so powerful
In its restraint that one cannot look for long.
The secret is too plain. The pity of it smarts,
Makes hot tears spurt: that the soul is not a soul,
Has no secret, is small, and it fits
Its hollow perfectly: its room, our moment of attention.

A man’s Soul is a sacred thing, and so may be that of a nation of people. A sold Soul leaves in its place that “hollow”, that vacancy, where Freedom’s beauty and happiness were originally found. The sold Soul, in its going away, leaves but fear and confusion in the vacuum, framed as they are in a promoted and implanted mental illusion.

It appears to me that freedom is being driven underground. It is as if many within the cultural foundation of our once-great nation have sold their Souls for convenience, creature-comforts, and Constitutional concessions. Cultural Marxism has marched unimpeded through our social and cultural institutions, so much so that in this year’s election cycle we actually saw a somewhat popularly-received avowed socialist running for the White House. To our chagrin, his opponent within the DNC was even worse. And to our further angst, the RNC’s answer to a Criminal Queen has been to trot out a Super-Statist with little or no knowledge about the Constitution. Neither candidate, to the best of my knowledge, speaks of disbanding the police state or ending the war on drugs or shutting down the Federal Reserve, or stopping our insane overseas nation-building wars, or getting us out of the United Nations. Both of them praise the power in the office, seek to control that power for exercising their personal beliefs for how to run America’s government. That is all the proof anyone should need to back up my supposition that freedom is being driven underground.

When we little people pause to see this portrait of a soul-less national government, we learn to our dismay that the understanding has come a bit too late, that the powers are established too strongly, that they control even the very perceptions of most citizens, that the few remaining wakeful and aware are reduced to whimpers as we write our lament and resignation on subway walls. Someone, somewhere, sometime, we hope, shall see the writing on the wall. But will anyone care? Shall anyone heed? Are there any self-owners still in our midst who yet hold the vision of personal freedom and who might be willing to actually practice independence and personal responsibility as our rightful way of life in America?

Empires bloom unto new light,

Bend down their stalks with their weight,

Blow as a dead leaf in Autumn,

Heeding their prophets too late.

The foregoing is the context in which I write the following.


I don’t let the foregoing drag me down. Seeing the damning futility in trying to “wake the flock up”, I remain undaunted. I continue to celebrate the undying efforts of those in our midst who have fought valiantly to preserve freedom in America. Now in my old age, I look back over the recent seven decades of societal erosion as American culture has incrementally evaporated. I cherish mostly the philosophers, the artists and writers of books; activists of every stripe, those whose souls demanded of them that they say something; those who are compelled to leave their mark on the memory of mankind; those who are driven to share their inner light with others in a dark world.

Each genius in his time lived a human life within his social and cultural matrix, and many of the immortal names of history were not seen as geniuses by their peers. Yet the spirit of caring love drove each to give of his soul the creations for which we today know them. They who speak to the Ages care little for contemporary approval, knowing already that the contemporary shall itself be enfolded into the brittle past as history marches on in time.

In a world gone crazy and in a nation whose government has gone lawless, I can see no reasonable solution, no cure-all which might heal the dying culture of freedom at the national level.

But in spite of the fact that the national government has sold its Soul, I do see many Americans holding fast to their own Souls at the individual level. Some instinctively know the importance of claiming, owning, and protecting one’s own Soul against the encroachments of evil. Among their number, I have been blessed to have worked with many honorable liberty fighters. Theirs is a culture which sets the mark to its highest notch on life’s hurdle, and they inspire me.

I always try to recognize genius when I see it in another man. Being freedom oriented, I’m drawn to folks  who have dedicated their lives to helping their fellow man awaken to the great potential of personal freedom indwelling every human soul.

For example, it has been my great pleasure to work with Stewart Rhodes, founder of Oath Keepers; with Sheriff Mack, founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA); with Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., author and speaker whom I see as America’s greatest authority on the Constitution; with Patrick Wood, author of Technocracy Rising; with G. Edward Griffin, author of The Creature From Jekyll Island; with Don Doig, founder of the Fully Informed Jury Association (FIJA); with Wendy McElroy, co-founder of the Voluntaryist movement; with Michael Shaw, founder of Freedom Advocates; with Jordan Page, Liberty Minstrel of the Ron Paul revolution; etc etc.

There are so many fine liberty fighters whose paths have intersected with my own, many more than I’ve named above. I am humbled and thankful. In knowing such people I’ve received a portion of their genius, their spirit of dedication to the cause of freedom at the individual level; and I’ve received as much as I could absorb of their knowledge. It uplifts my spirit to pause and reflect on the qualities such folks insert into the national psyche. They prove to me that I am not alone, that you are not alone.

In the wee hours of this morning, well before daybreak, with October’s first snow on the ground outside my little square log cabin in the forests of Montana, I’m celebrating the good I’ve seen in men and women who value freedom. It pleases me to now reflect on a relationship between myself, Oath Keepers, the “Liberty Movement” in general, and a fearless film-making genius named James Jaeger.

cultural-marxismAs I recall, it was in late June, 2010, that James Jaeger offered Oath Keepers the distinct honor of hosting the world premiere of his movie, “Cultural Marxism“. I arranged that premiere in Bozeman, Montana, and on July 02 of that year we premiered the film at the Emerson Cultural Center at Bozeman. I had arranged some radio spots to promote it, so we had a good crowd. Thus began a working relationship between James Jaeger’s Matrix Entertainment studios and Oath Keepers. And thus began a friendship between James Jaeger and myself.

From that beginning,  I have continued to promote James’ movies here at Oath Keepers and one thing I can celebrate is the fact that Oath Keepers’ members and friends have carried much of the financial burden of producing these documentary films on our Constitution. And James has in return promoted Oath Keepers by granting Oath Keepers (and myself, individually) opening credits in his movies.

I want to let each of you who has donated (or who shall donate) to James’ movies know that I cherish your commitment to spreading the truth about our Constitution. Your support shows me that you have recognized the genius in James’ projects and the necessity for getting our Constitution “on the record” by producing videos which enhance millions of Americans’ understanding of the founders’ intent.

I also am celebrating the fact that James has enabled me to be an associate producer on his last four films — SPOiLER, MOLON LABE, MIDNIGHT RIDE, and, now in production, “MAINSTREAM“. That is an honor on which I’m reflecting today.  (Thank you James.)

James recently introduced me to a wonderful group of liberty fighters who do a radio show once a week. The group is the American Underground Network. These are the good souls who worked with Aaron Russo to produce and distribute the outstanding documentary film, “America: Freedom To Fascism“.  That film focused on the 16th Amendment and the Federal Reserve Act, both of 1913 under Woodrow Wilson. Watch that movie for free > HERE <

The American Underground Network hosted me on their weekly show named the “Collective Consciousness Show” with Fred Smart, Dede, Steve, and others.  The show was about the organization I created way back in 1999 and named “The Mental Militia”.  You may read a brief history of The Mental Militia HERE.  And of course we talked on the show about James Jaeger, which led to the American Underground Network inviting James onto their show the following week, this past October 13 2016. James has been on their show several times. The show was their 470th consecutive weekly broadcast, and once one gets familiar with their network one will understand why they’ve been successful over the years. Their work distributed Aaron Russo’s film to millions of viewers back during the Ron Paul Revolution, and they have never let up. Good people.

Please read about and listen to James’ show HERE. (embedded link:  )

And now let’s talk about James’ newest venture, a movie which is raising hell in the New York Media Mogul Club and the Hollywood Set — MAINSTREAM.

The subtitle of the film is: “How Hollywood Movies and the New York Media Are Promoting The Globalist Agenda”.  Just thinking about that will now allow the reader to see more clearly why I established a “context” at the beginning of this letter.  I was speaking about a nation selling its soul, yes? What I did not go into in any real depth above is the fact that the mass media and the Hollywood movie industry have been conscripted by the very powers who paid for America’s soul, writing the check to Washington D.C.  politicians on behalf of the military industrial complex on Wall Street and the master bankers at the Federal Reserve System, Inc.

Yes. The mainstream media and much of the entertainment industry are assisting governmental, Marxist, and fascist powers in controlling what the American people think. That is why I created The Mental Militia sixteen years ago, and that is why James is making the movie, MAINSTREAM. Most importantly, that is why Oath Keepers would like to ask each reader here to contribute to this film.

Oath Keepers is under increasing attack. As your editor for seven years, I can assure you that our message of reaching out to police and military current-serving personnel and teaching them about the true meaning in that Oath they each swore is something the corruption in Washington D.C. cannot tolerate. We are being attacked mercilessly in the mainstream media now more than ever. The profilers over at the Southern Poverty Law Center are selling their imagined nonsense about Oath Keepers to the U.S. Department of Defense for fat paychecks, while at the same time spreading their vile defamations to police departments by offering police departments “training classes”.  You can start learning about that here and here.

In supporting James’ newest film project you are indirectly supporting Oath Keepers as well. As with MOLON LABE and MIDNIGHT RIDE, our founder, Stewart Rhodes has a starring role in MAINSTREAM. And Oath Keepers is in the opening credits of the film.  At bottom line, your donations will help strike a blow against the tyranny which is coming at us like a run-away freight train.

Please go here to donate —

Want more info about the movie? It’s all right here, synopsis, script, featured experts, trailers, snippets, and budget:

I want to thank you for sharing this relaxing moment with me. Shortly I’ll dive into the next round of madness which crosses my screen with too much to read, too many phone calls, too many emails, and too many ideas about how freedom might survive what’s coming at this nation — another day at the salt mines and in the trenches of the MindWar, trying to ride herd on the Oath Keepers national website. In parting, I’d like to share with you one other thing for which I greatly respect James Jaeger. That would be his tradition of posting his documentary films on Constitutional issues online for free viewing. James wants everyone to have access to the Constitutional knowledge carried in his films. And those Oath Keepers and friends who’ve made these films possible can know that their donations continue to serve the American people with honor, long after the movies are produced. Here are all of James’ Constitutional documentary films in one location on the WWW for free viewing and link-sharing with friends —

    our Constitution, Christian religious values, the rights and freedoms of natural born American citizens and the ALL LOVING American CULTURE itself. After obama America will NOT SURVIVE another liberal leftist agenda term as our Supreme Court is in jeopardy of being taken over by liberals that hate the AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE..
    The ONLY HOPE for America is a Trump/Pence Presidency, PERIOD!

    1. Well, I can appreciate your observation while questioning your conclusion. I think that the only hope for America is for every American to get past this crazy idea of wanting some damned man-made government to regulate, control, surveil, tax, license, direct, permit, promote, and punish its citizens, who are exposed to the liability of a government-made “foreign policy” which incites the world to hate us. Self-reliance, personal responsibility, moral uprightness work together to create freedom, and thus do they comprise the answer, the “ONLY HOPE for America”, in my way of seeing things. Perhaps you and I and our good neighbors are the true hope for America, yes? Never mind the political circus and some silly man-made government.
      Thank you for reading here and leaving your comment.

    2. Deplorable, You’re right, we are under attack. Where you and I differ is the “One evil is better than the other” argument. In three weeks we will either have elected an “International Fascist,” or a “True Blue Nationalized Fascist.” That’s not to say that Trump will intend to be that way, but he will swing that direction when congress doesn’t give him what he wants. Heck, it may happen sooner than that…….

      Prepare my friend and get right with God. We got a rocky road ahead.

    3. I made the mistake of voting for G.W. Bush twice and haven’t voted since then (perhaps out of shock/disgust/self-loathing). You can see what voting for the “least evil” got us there. Doing the same thing again by voting for Trump is a big mistake. Who knows what that lunatic would bring us. He seems to me to be a classic sociopath without any principles except the pursuit of power for its own sake. You will be Sieg Heiling straight to hell with that guy.

      With Clinton you know you are getting the same old corruption, warmongering, and socialism that we have had under Obama and the other Clinton. They may very well take your gun rights and bring about hyperinflation. The stock market is on its last breath and an economic collapse is nearly certain in the next four years. A double digit unemployment rate will be here to stay.

      I say bring it on. Let Clinton screw it up and people will be will be desperate for a real candidate next time around. Honestly I think a Clinton victory will be a big boost to pro-Liberty groups like Oathkeepers. People will want real solutions and an escape from the corruption. A Trump victory, on the other hand, would just lull people into complacency, thinking he actually is on their side while he takes their freedoms away.

      Personally I will be voting for Gary Johnson this year. My soul cannot tolerate voting for Trump. And if the USA (meaning the government) falls–so what–the people who are actually worth something will rebuild a new America. Maybe they will do it in a different land, but I don’t think the _idea_ of America will ever die, even if the “USA” (government) dies.

    1. Heh! Yes, Lee. S and G were pristine awesome. Thanks for posting it up.
      Even though I forget a hunnert things a day, I think I can actually remember your posting that. Now you’ve given me good reason to listen again to that Bob Dylan tune — “It’s Not Dark Yet; But It’s Gettin’ There”.
      Enjoy, Brother —

  2. Be patient with The Donald, Elias: he is still standing. That, alone, is a remarkable feat. Not another man in a hundred thousand, or more, could have withstood the attack torrents of the past year. He will do two more rallies tomorrow, I suspect.

    Like you, his heart is pure; he is fighting for the right reasons — because there is no one else. Now, he doesn’t know what he doesn’t know, but he will learn. We might yet see the end of The Fed, the end of the drug war. Give him a bit of time.

    The Donald is the “man for this season,” come to save the world, as did Churchill once upon a time. Give him time. …..Lady in Red

    1. Well, I’ll not throw the Trump under the bus, but I will remind you about how good men can (and often have) do bad things while holding the best of intentions. Churchill holds a place of high esteem in world history, but he delivered us into evil none-the-less. Never forget — Churchill met with Roosevelt and Stalin in 1945 on the heels of WWII and the three of them sat down together and created the United Nations.

      Even the best of mortal men are fallible. Personally, Lady in Red, I trust my inner conscience, my Unalienable Rights, and my autonomy as a divinely created Soul. I do not need, nor even want, a “leader” outside my own conscience. I am ready for what Thoreau dubbed to be “a government which governs not at all“. I would not care who was in the White House if the Federal government remained bound down by Article 1, Section 8, and did not get outside that small little box. We have allowed the Federal government to greatly exceed its lawful limitations, and one good example of that is the U.S. Department of Education. There is no Constitutional provision or authorization for the Federal government to involve itself in educating our children, no authorization for the Federal government to even have a “Department of Education”. The trick, I think, is to disempower the damned Federal government until it once again is the servant of the States which created it, a small, inexpensive compact for mutual protection and facilitation between the sovereign nation-state republics which signed that document.

      Thank you for your comment. I hope things go as you would like to see them go — but never forsake your own duty to be your own authority first and foremost in this life on earth. That was a character trait which was common in the early decades of our country, and it’s now seen clearly that such was a better approach to life, much better than being willingly subservient to some man-made political office.

  3. Very moving!

    I remember long ago, I was so concerned and fearful for the British after their elites started dumping Muslims onto the British population. My eleven years in Saudi Arabia informed me that this would be trouble.

    Now I have to worry about my own country’s destruction by the Evil Elite.

    Sad days, but I keep on keeping on, hoping that we will someday be able to declare (as the British say), “Good riddance to bad rubbish!”

    1. Methinks that the “Evil Elite” only can exercise power over any nation if the citizens of that nation believe in the system of governance the evil elite have set up for them. The “evil elite” use the mass media and Hollywood (among other tools) to stupefy an unwitting public. That is the point of this article — self-education as a counter measure against the onslaught of propaganda being peppered at us daily by a media which serves the elite.
      Keep on keeping on, Jeanette, but also keep elevating yourself out of the belief in some silly man-made government, and look within yourself for your guidance, your authority, your freedom. When enough Americans do just that, this “evil elite” empire will fall of its own dead weight, and at that time we can get back to living like “Americans” again.

  4. Elias…..I can not tell you how much I enjoyed this open letter, the poetry, and most of all your wisdom. I want to mention so many of the “nerve striking” comments you made in this open letter, however, I will only log this one. You said: “I always try to recognize genius when I see it in another man”. Of the countless articles you have written, this one is recognizable genius. I am an old Korean War Navy Veteran, an extremely proud American, a realist, lover of Freedom and an Oath Keeper until my final breath. I truly hope that some day our paths may cross. God Bless this Sovereign Constitutional Republic.

    1. Thank you for your service in the Korean War, Vinny; and thank you for reading the whole article and enjoying it. It is very helpful to me to hear positive feedback from our readers, so I appreciate your response greatly.
      If your path ever leads you up to northwest Montana just let me know ahead of time and I’ll meet you at the hitching post in some little town hidden between tall mountains — coffee is on me!
      Be blessed, Bro.

  5. Elias ; I understand completely , your take ; From time to time I find myself in denial to and I find myself in the same trick-bag , that you , so eloquently portrayed in your poem I have to slap myself in the face ever , so often , when I go into denial ; Donald Trump dose this , with me ever once in a while and I have to remember , who own’s Donald Trump ; The guy , who gave him a hundred million dollar’s , about three months ago ; His name is Sheldon Eagleson . The reason , for the donation was too help pay , for Donald Trump’s expense’s , while campaigning around the country ; Donald Trump ” said he would not except donation’s , because he was his own man ” ; I was born at night , but not last night ! Again I must slap myself and wake up and understand reality , that this man is bought and paid for , although I go back into my trance , believing some how he will wake-up and smell the tea leave’s ; Elias , you are , so right , about his understanding of our Constitution , that he claim’s too be fighting to protect ; His understanding of our Constitution is nonsense and he dose have a status’ approach to his terms ; Another thing many of his followers , seem too be clueless , about , when , they cheer , like sheep every time he talk’s , about your Second amendment right’s , instead of our Second amendment right’s , tells us , that he think’s , that the Second amendment , is a privilege and not a right ; A fundamental lack of understanding of basic Constitutional term’s , when Trump use’s , that kind of language ,your’s , when he should be using our’s , when he talking , about our Second amendment right’s , that’s one example of his Constitutional illiteracy ; Elias , you said in a Youtube video I Forget , who the commentator’s name is , ” that you did not see much hope in the future , concerning our Republic , and , that , you didn’t think that thing’s , would be getting any better , that we were on a down word slope ” ; This quote , isn’t exact , but I put quote’s anyways I had a hard time getting my head around , that statement , although it’s getting harder to refute , that statement . The shadows of darkness’ , seem ‘s complete , with insurmountable underpinnings , that can’t ever be reversed I see the big picture , but like , you I feel it and I feel alone inside myself !!!

  6. I second Vinny’s words here Elias…you poured out some remarkable wisdom for us to ponder my friend. I myself feel as though He has torn me out of ground I’ve grown too settled in, roots and all, to build me anew. They are stepping up their attacks on Oath Keepers. See this as opportunity…ask your confused neighbor, “What is the Oath but a promise to God? America’s greatness was owed to the good men and women throughout our history who kept that promise. Why would we believe or follow anyone who would condemn this promise and force any American to break it?” I LOVE what Paul told the Thessalonians in the heat of their persecution; “Be joyful always. Pray continuously. Be grateful in all circumstances.” God’s will be done. And may he continue to bless you and yours sir.

  7. Don’t be pompous, Elias. We all love Thoreau.

    If you want someone to turn off the lights at the Department of Education, it won’t happen by writing poetry about ponds. Ergo the EPA.

    Sit in your Montana cabin (and I do hope you will be safe), but don’t be naive. Trump is needed to slash back all the octopus tentacles from the last fifty years.

    Frankly, *I* trust him to do that (when he is fully educated, in office).

    Don’t be snippy, Elias. This is important. This is for The World. ….Lady in Red

    1. Lady in Red — I’m very sorry to have come across as “pompous” and “snippy”. You are of course quite free to perceive as you prefer. Thank you for reading at Oath Keepers.
      Elias Alias, editor

    2. I did not find Elias to be “pompous and snippy” in his reply to your comment, Lady in Red. I, myself, am not sure that “Trump is needed”. I do know that Clinton is needed… to be ARRESTED, Prosecuted for treason and *terrorism, and a multitude of other crimes.

      I disagree that we need Trump, what we really need is HONEST, TRUE, and REAL ELECTIONS with real candidates – not chosen for us ones.

      What is needed is for the people to take back their elections and allow no more fraudulent ones to occur – at least for a few decades. What we need is to dump both parties which we are not supposed to have as they do exactly what we see today – divide for to be conquered. The people, not the parties need to choose candidates and WRITE them in.

      I feel that since we know that those that serve within our governments cannot stop Election Fraud (yes, i do know they commit it), that we can now start holding our own.

      I have not figured out the logistics of evicting those that are currently living and working there, but it must be done, “fumigated”, cleaned of all debris, and then restaffed. It is supposed to be the people’s house, but at this time I find that hard to believe (“Summary: With the new White House Visitor Center opening up, we want to remind you of the ways you can visit “The People’s House” from Washington, D.C. or from the comfort of your home.

      Since we are NOT supposed to keep a full-time (“standing”) military what do we do about the Pentagon – those that serve there know it and do NOT want to lose their “power and prestige”? Since none of those using that building or the other previously mentioned at every single level have done their duties as constitutionally required nor did they keep their Oath to Support and Defend the US Constitution they cannot be trusted to stay.

      Ah well, moving is always difficult, moving out those no longer welcome is, I suppose, even more difficult.

      See why I feel we need real, honest, elections? Trump has not proven himself to me – and many others – but to once again vote for what one perceives (hopes) is the “lesser of two evils” is still voting to put “evil” into our government.

      *28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

      God Bless and Stay Safe All

      If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

      Chief Tecumseh: “When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

  8. The greatest evil on the planet is THE ROTHSCHILDS BANKING EMPIRE THAT OWNS OUR FEDERAL RESERVE LIKE AN OCCUPYING ENEMY PRESENCE and that of many other nations. The people are backing Hillary not Trump. Trump and Putin will get along better as well since the reason Putin likes him is he asked to audit the fed showing his opposition to the Rothschilds and Putin hates the Rothschilds and has ordered them to be subject to arrest.

    Hitler was also backed by the Rothschilds as were Mao, Lenin and Stalin.

    George Washington

    “It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am. The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavoured to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of seperation). That Individuals of them may… actually had a seperation [sic] of the People from their Government in view, is too evident to be questioned.” – George Washington, 1st President of the United States (1789–1797), from a letter that Washington wrote on October 24, 1798, which can be found in the Library of Congress. For an analysis of Washington’s warning, see the article “Library of Congress: George Washington Warns of Illuminati”

    Thomas Jefferson

    “I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.” —Thomas Jefferson, 3rd President of the United States (1801–1809) and principal author of the United States Declaration of Independence (1776), in a letter written to John Taylor on May 28, 1816

    John C Calhoun

    “A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many and various powerful interests, combined in one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in banks.” – John C. Calhoun, Vice President (1825-1832) and U.S. Senator, from a speech given on May 27, 1836
    Note that it appears that Washington’s and Jefferson’s concerns regarding bankers and separation of the people from the government was realized by 1836. This fact was confirmed in a letter written by FDR in 1933 (see below) in which he wrote that “a financial element in the large centers has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.” Jackson was the seventh president of the United States (1829-1937). Calhoun served as Jackson’s vice-president from 1829-1932.

    Theodore Roosevelt

    “Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”— Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, An Autobiography, 1913 (Appendix B)

    Woodrow Wilson

    “A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men… [W]e have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world—no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.” – Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States, The New Freedom, 1913

    “Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” – Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States, The New Freedom, 1913
