Arrow All Wars Are Bankers' Wars

In the beginning of World War I, Woodrow Wilson had adopted initially a policy of neutrality. But the Morgan Bank, which was the most powerful bank at the time, and which wound up funding over 75 percent of the financing for the allied forces during World War I … pushed Wilson out of neutrality sooner than he might have done, because of their desire to be involved on one side of the war.

Now, on the other side of that war, for example, was the National City Bank, which, though they worked with Morgan in financing the French and the British, they also didn’t have a problem working with financing some things on the German side, as did Chase …

When Eisenhower became president … the U.S. was undergoing this expansion by providing, under his doctrine, military aid and support to countries [under] the so-called threat of being taken over by communism … What bankers did was they opened up hubs, in areas such as Cuba, in areas such as Beirut and Lebanon, where the U.S. also wanted to gain a stronghold in their Cold War fight against the Soviet Union. And so the juxtaposition of finance and
foreign policy were very much aligned... Do you know what Ed Gein said about women?. .Ed Gein? The maitre 'd at Canal Bar?.. No, serial killer, Wisconsin, the '50s..So what did he say?."When I see a pretty girl walking down the street, I think two things.. One part wants me to take her out, talk to her, be real nice and sweet and treat her right"..And what did the other part think?.."What her head would look like on a stick "..My lord, what will a man not do for love..She had such phower over men's hearts...
