"JUST LOOK AT THE WAY WE GOTTA HIDE WHAT WE’RE DOING!" – From 1967 hit song “I think we’re alone now”
Harry P. Leonard wrote to the New York Times, October 15, 1933, section IV page 5:
In the hasty work of last March constitutional rights and law were overlooked.
That was in response to Franklin Roosevelt’s illegal, anti-Jacksonian order of March 1933 that Americans had to turn in gold notes and more importantly, hard gold!
William Emlen Roosevelt was a director of Chemical Bank (associated with the chemical industry, silver catalyst users), several railroads, ITT Corporation and other entities and was most likely another Pilgrims member.
Henry Morgenthau Jr.
FDR’s Treasury Secretary, Henry Morgenthau Jr., second generation Pilgrims Society member whose father was Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire, member of the anti-silver Economic Club of New York, director of the Equitable Life Assurance Society and a member of the Order of the British Empire holding a fortune in real estate in Herald Square Realty, presided over THE SICKENING PRECIOUS METALS FORFEITURE CRIMINALLY IMPOSED ON UNITED STATES CITIZENS.
His father was known to be in contact with Viscount Reginald Esher (Pilgrims of Great Britain) who was associated with the Crown and the Rothschilds.
The Crime of ’73 (1873) in which London interests bribed Congress to demonetize silver for all payments of over $5 traces to these same elements! That action caused widespread misery ignored by mainstream historians, who are bought off by corrupted scholarships, fellowships, appointments, tenure at Society dominated universities, and ownership of textbook publishers. Morgenthau Senior was offered to be Ambassador to Mexico in 1920. Junior was a member of the anti-silver Bankers Club in Manhattan.
Newsweek, August 18, 1934, page 29 commented:
Using the right of eminent domain in confiscating the metal, Treasury officials could legally set any price they desired.
The Commercial & Financial Chronicle, December 21, 1935, page 3945, quoted Treasury Secretary Morgenthau stating that the silver nationalization was "in the interest of the public."
Business Week, February 27, 1937, page 35 stated:
ALL THE SILVER COMMANDEERED AT THE TIME SILVER WAS NATIONALIZED WAS AT 50 CENTS AN OUNCE. THE WORLD PRICE THEN SOARED TO THE 70s
Gold was nationalized at $20.67/ounce and then revalued to $35; silver holders were likewise frozen out of future gains. It was not the Federal Government taking precious metal from the citizenry - it was The Pilgrims Society - the Crown’s concealed network of financiers doing the stealing, using the President and the Treasury Secretary to do it, hiding behind appeals to "national necessity."
FDR crowed, We are continuing to move toward a managed currency.
— New York Times, October 23, 1933, page 2, story titled “President’s Gold Plan Is Held Unprecedented and Bewildering.”
President Franklin D. Roosevelt
Franklin Roosevelt, gold and silver stealer, member of wealthy Wall Street dynasty with a fortune partly based in the opium "trade" in which British aristocrats were leaders, faulted precious metals as a monetary base (page 1, New York Times. December 23, 1933):
SEA SHELLS WITH HOLES IN THEM ARE A MONETARY BASE IN THE SOUTH SEAS.
FEDERAL AGENTS SHOULD BE EMPOWERED TO SUPERVISE THE OPENING OF EACH DEPOSIT BOX AND SUMMON FOR PENALTY ALL THOSE WHO CANNOT SATISFACTORILY EXPLAIN THE POSSESSION OF SEQUESTERED MONEY
— New York Times, March 9, 1933, page 2
THE PRESIDENT IS A DICTATOR AFTER MUSSOLINI’S OWN HEART.
— New York Times, March 10, 1933, page 8
Time Magazine, June 24, 1935, reported that Mussolini seized silver coins! They were needed for such purposes as paying Italian troops who unsuccessfully invaded Greece, and the Ethiopian invasion.

Earl of Dwyfor
David Lloyd-George, Pilgrims Society of Great Britain, also known as The Earl of Dwyfor, member of Parliament, 1890-1945, formerly Prime Minister, President of the Board of Trade, Minister of Munitions, Chancellor of the Exchequer and Secretary of State for War, praised FDR’s gold and silver stealing campaign (New York Times, April 23, 1933, page 27):
Already in his short time in office he has shown resolution and courage, and has proved himself to possess that rare and invaluable combination of qualities in a statesman — a clear vision of the national need and the courage to act.
"National need" is the same code language as "national emergency" and "wartime emergency" and is Pilgrims Society lingo for "the seizure of the wealth necessary."
Pilgrims Society member The Earl of Dwyfor, opponent of gold and silver ownership on the part of the classes they intend to rule over, was British Prime Minister during the Indian crisis of 1918 in which his Pilgrim Partners in America arranged for 200 million ounces of silver to be sent for purposes of preserving British control.
LONDON BANKERS CONSIDER THE PRESENT PRICE AS HIGH ENOUGH. BANKERS HERE ARE STILL UNFAVORABLE TO REMONETIZATION.
The Trust Giants point of view
— Quote from: New York Times, January 4, 1932, page 30.
The New York Times, March 6, 1933, page 2, reported:
HOARDERS, IN THE OPINION OF THE REVEREND DR. CHRISTIAN F. REISNER, pastor of the Broadway Temple Methodist Episcopal Church, 174th Street and Broadway, ARE TRAITORS AND SHOULD BE DEPRIVED OF CITIZENSHIP.
(This minister, Reverend Dr. Reisner, received $250,000 in 1929 from Pilgrims Society member John D. Rockefeller Sr.)
Adjusted for inflation, John D. Rockefeller’s net worth is reportedly upwards of USD $663 billion.
Robert W. Bingham
“Newspapers Issue Scrip,” New York Times, March 7, 1933, page 3 reported:
Louisville, Kentucky — Louisville’s first scrip, issued by the Courier-Journal and Times, will appear tomorrow. Employees will receive their salaries in part scrip and part cash. The scrip can be used at stores that advertise in the newspapers. The merchants will use their scrip to pay advertising bills, but for no other purpose.
Robert W. Bingham, Pilgrims Society member seen at right, owned that newspaper. His second marriage was into the Flagler family of Pilgrims Society members and Standard Oil and railroad heirs.
His second wife died within a year, he got her millions, and rumors abounded she was murdered.
Bingham was FDR’s ambassador to Britain, 1933-1937. He made statements to the effect that it was good for the English people that Britain abandoned gold in fall 1931.
Henry Morrison Flagler
Ambassador Attributes Re-employment of 600,000 There to Quitting Gold Standard.
— New York Times, December 24, 1933, page 5.
Henry M. Flagler was a founding partner in Standard Oil, and later built the Florida East Coast Railroad and hotels with 40,000 rooms, including one with 1,100 rooms.
He lived in a 55 room mansion and divorced his second wife on the ruse of “incurable insanity” (see: Henry Flager at Wikipedia)
Bingham’s son Barry Jr., Pilgrims Society, Order of the British Empire, chaired the Louisville Courier Journal and Times, the International Press Institute and the English Speaking Union of the United States and was seen with The Queen and Prince Philip on July 9, 1976 (“The Pilgrims of the United States,” 2003, page 142).
James Aloysius Farley
James Aloysius Farley, Pilgrims Society, ran Franklin Roosevelt’s New York gubernatorial and presidential campaigns and chaired the Democratic National Committee from 1932-1940.
After which he chaired Coca Cola Export Corporation — 59 Coke plants were built by taxpayer money under the misleading aegis of "European reconstruction" after World War II. (see: James Farley at Wikipedia)
He was a member of the subversive American Academy of Political and Social Science and the anti-silver New York Board of Trade.
He was Postmaster General, 1933-1940 and ordered notices posted at all post offices as to Franklin Roosevelt’s Executive Order 6102 (click to view) compelling Americans to turn in their gold to the Treasury Department.
Lord Kindersley, Pilgrims Society of Great Britain (1871-1954) became chairman of the famous international financial house of Lazard in 1919 and chairman of Rolls Royce.
He was a director of the metals suppressing Bank of England, 1914-1946 and had huge holdings in Canadian National Railway.
In "FDR" (2008) by Jean Smith, 880 pages, page 296 mentions FDR’s 11 day cruise in 1932, the year before FDR’s gold grab, on Vincent Astor’s 263 foot yacht.
John Jacob Astor working with us in the opium trade,
Just look at us bankers, we’re a real sick parade!
Under titles and dukedoms we masquerade,
Bad legislation in your Congress, you’re betrayed!
Inner circle Pilgrims Society member Vincent Astor with Franklin Roosevelt
Vincent Astor, descended from John Jacob Astor (1763-1848) the "landlord of New York" who was a director of the second Bank of the United States (smashed by Andrew Jackson!).
The Bank worked to make its "convertible" notes inconvertible by requiring presentation of notes of branches at branches most distant! Astor’s American Fur Company that defrauded native tribes and its own trappers was part of the British opium trade in China (see: John Jacob Astor at Wikipedia) That’s who Astoria, Oregon is named for!
Astor’s fortune swelled to a Himalayan scale within several years after he and his British associates caused the Panic of 1837 by suspending specie redemption of major banks! Vincent Astor’s widow, Brooke, who became one of the few female Pilgrims Society members, was a trustee of Rockefeller University (Who’s Who, 1980, page 118) and a member of Mrs. Lyndon Johnson’s Beautification Committee in D.C. We are prompted to remember how LBJ subtracted from the beautification of our coinage.
As of the leaked 1980 list, five Astors were members of The Pilgrims of Great Britain, with Lord Astor as president. A member of the Royal Thames Yacht Club and the Jekyll Island Club (of Federal Reserve infamy), Vincent Astor was a director of Chase National Bank; International Mercantile Marine Company; Western Union; Great Northern Railway; City & Suburban Homes; U.S. Trust of New York; and (why go through a list as long as your forearm) the New York Chamber of Commerce, an anti-silver money organization (see for example The Forum Magazine, December 1891, pages 472 through 476). Guilt by association?
In this case, 100% absolutely correct. According to Vincent Astor at Wikipedia, his grandmother Caroline Astor "reigned over American society." Vincent and FDR were boyhood friends; Vincent married a Roosevelt relative in 1940!
Far from being an enemy of Wall Street, FDR was one of them and took orders from those greater than himself.
We’ll see more on these Astors later! Could Astor have been a cause of FDR’s metals theft? "History of the Great American Fortunes" (1936) discussed immense frauds executed by the Astors from pages 93 to 175!
According to New York Social Diary, Vincent Astor:
INHERITED PROPERTY ALL OVER MANHATTAN THAT TODAY WOULD PROBABLY BE WORTH OVER A HUNDRED BILLION.
The link also mentions that Vincent Astor and Franklin Roosevelt were distant cousins.
FDR and his extended family have seen extensive interaction with Pilgrims Society members; they’ve been trustees of Roosevelt Hospital (Bayard Dominick II, governor of the New York Stock Exchange and associate of Avery Rockefeller Jr., Pilgrims Society, late 1950’s; there are many examples such as Stuart Crocker chairman of Columbia Gas System and director of Morgan Guaranty Trust; Ralph T. Reed, chairman of American Express and Francis Plimpton, Ambassador to the United Nations, 1961-1965 and vice president of The Pilgrims Society); directors of Roosevelt Steamship Company, also known as Roosevelt Lines (Hoyt Ammidon, Pilgrims Society, United States Trust Company, 45 Wall Street, right hand man of Vincent Astor, Pilgrims Society);
Prince George, The Duke of Kent
Today we notice Thomas L. Pulling, retired Citigroup official on the executive committee of The Pilgrims Society, as a governor of the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute, along with a member of the silver stealing Morgenthau family! Several glaring British connections are noticed with them including Rivington Winant, son of John D. Winant, Pilgrims Society, once Governor of New Hampshire and Ambassador to Britain (1941-1946). Isaac Roosevelt, FDR’s grandfather, started the Bank of New York in 1790; it’s now Bank of New York Mellon, a key Pilgrims Society institution. In the horrifically perverse Roosevelt genealogy including the Delano family of opium dealers we additionally notice William Stoughton, prosecutor and judge of the hideous Salem Witch Trials of 1692-1693, in which nineteen people were hung, another was crushed to death, and still others died in confinement (see: James Roosevelt, Sr. at Wikipedia)
The Commercial & Financial Chronicle, March 30, 1935, page 2104, reported FDR was a guest on Vincent Astor’s yacht “Nourmahal” also featuring His Royal Highness Prince George of The House of Windsor, The Duke of Kent, Pilgrims Society of Great Britain.
The Commercial & Financial Chronicle reported on August 1, 1936, page 672, FDR’s visit with Lord Tweedsmuir, Pilgrims Society, then British Governor General of Canada; with them was Norman Armour, American diplomat in Canada, whose name surfaced in the 1969 leaked list of The Pilgrims as an executive committee member. The Franklin Roosevelt administration has not been chronicled by any establishment historian as a Pilgrims Society administration — to do so would be to forfeit tenure, pensions, grants and book publishing deals!
Franklin Roosevelt and
Basil O’ Connor
Silver stealer Franklin Roosevelt in 1944 seen playing with Mercury dimes with Basil O’ Connor (1892-1972), who appeared in the leaked list of The Pilgrims Society for 1969. Undoubtedly O’ Connor had been a member for many years. FDR was O’ Connor’s law partner from 1924 to 1933.
O’ Connor was a member of the anti-silver Banker’s Club of America; he held interests in New England Fuel Oil Corporation; American Reserve Insurance and West Indies Sugar Corporation. O’ Connor was a long time leader of the American Red Cross, whose purpose is vastly different than its carefully managed public reputation (see: The American Red Double-Cross) He received decorations from France; Denmark; Belgium; Bulgaria; Cuba; Venezuela; Italy; Norway; Finland; Rumania; Netherlands; Brazil and Greece.
The outgoing Hoover administration wasn’t in conflict with the incoming FDR administration; Hoover appointed Nicholas Roosevelt United States Minister to Hungary in 1930. The 1928 Who’s Who, page 1796 showed Franklin Roosevelt’s office as 52 Wall Street; he was with Pilgrims Society member John G. Milburn’s law firm, 1907-1910.
The 1914 Who’s Who, page 2008, showed FDR was a banker at that time, on the board of First National Bank of Poughkeepsie, New York. FDR’s cousin, George Emlen Roosevelt, almost certainly a member of The Pilgrims Society, and at the start of the FDR administration was a director of Guaranty Trust, French-American Banking, Chemical Bank, assorted railroad and other corporations; and appeared on the Guaranty Trust board with at least half a dozen confirmed Pilgrims Society members interlocking it in spiderweb fashion with many other powerful interests.
The New York Times, November 17, 1933, page 2, “Morgan and Taylor Call on Roosevelt” quoted Pilgrims Society member J.P. Morgan Jr. remarking:
YOU KNOW I CANNOT TELL YOU WHAT I TALKED ABOUT WITH THE PRESIDENT.
Myron Charles Taylor
Morgan’s associate in that closed meeting was Myron C. Taylor, Pilgrims Society, member of the anti-silver Bankers Club in Manhattan; chairman of United States Steel; director First National Bank of New York; Mutual Life Insurance; New York Central Railroad; Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway; American Telephone & Telegraph.
In 1939 he became FDR’s personal representative with rank of ambassador to the Vatican in Rome until 1950 (an entity which has its own domain and has been in conflict with Britain since 1533).
Taylor was a trustee of Cornell University and the American Academy in Rome. Wikipedia says of FDR’s friend Taylor:
Myron Charles Taylor (January 18, 1874 - May 5, 1959) was one of the major figures in American life during the first half of the twentieth century. He was probably America's leading industrialist and later a key diplomatic figure at the hub of many of the most-important geopolitical events before, during, and after World War II.
Irving T. Bush
Irving T. Bush (1869-1948), Pilgrims Society, inherited millions from his father and travelled around the world in his yacht “Coronet” in 1888-1889.
In spite of his inheritance, he worked for Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company as of 1890. He started Bush Terminal Company in 1902 with 125 warehouses, 8 piers and 18 buildings up to 30 stories tall covering 30 city blocks in South Brooklyn and recruited over 300 corporate tenants.
To this he added a short line railroad and the Bush Building in London, a Pilgrims Society landmark. He was a member of the India House Club and the anti-silver New York State Chamber of Commerce. The New York Times, March 7, 1933, page 2, “Employees Told Not to Hoard” Bush sent a circular to his employees urging them not to hoard money. He had around 25,000 employees. (see: Irving T. Bush at Wikipedia) His Pilgrims Society buddies were just then massaging a banking crisis helping their boy Franklin Roosevelt to seize gold from Americans.
Irving Bush, descended from a Dutchman who arrived in North America in 1662, was chairman of Continental Commerce Company, holding original patents on Thomas Edison’s forerunner of modern motion pictures, the kinetoscope, opening the world’s first movie parlor in 1894 in London. He was a large scale operator in the banana importing business, and during World War I chaired the War Board of the Port of New York. He was among the founders in 1922 of Grand Central Art Galleries and was rated among the 40 wealthiest Americans.
The statues symbolise Anglo-American friendship
and the building bears the inscription
‘To the friendship of English speaking peoples’.
When the Bush Building was finished in 1929 in London, it was the world’s most expensive building (see: Bush House at Wikimapia) and has long been headquarters of the British Broadcasting Corporation (Pilgrims Society). Irving Bush wasn’t related to the presidential Bush family (Pilgrims Society). Statues at the entrance to the Bush House in London, representing the mutual world conspiracy of the “Pilgrim Partners”.
Clarence Mott Woolley, (Pilgrims Society, no photo), was a member of the anti-silver Economic Club of New York, organized American Radiator Company in cooperation with the J.P. Morgan interests; it controlled the majority of indoor heating market in America.
He was a director of The Pilgrims Society’s direct subsidiary, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) from 1932-1935 and a director of the anti-silver Federal Reserve Bank of New York and Hotel Waldorf Astoria; Gold Dust Corporation; Atlantic Mutual Insurance; Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway; Continental Insurance; Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad; Mutual Life Insurance; Texas Gulf Sulphur; trustee Columbia University; St. Lawrence University; member India House Club, Japan Society (Who’s Who, 1941, page 2830).
Lewis Latham Clarke (born 1871, no photo), member of The Pilgrims Society, became a governor in 1915 of the anti-silver Bankers Club of America. He headed American Exchange National Bank which became Irving Trust Company at 1 Wall Street.
He chaired Kenzel Corporation (named after his wife’s family’s interests) and also New York & Honduras Rosario Mining Company, a gold and silver producer in two central American nations; director of Home Indemnity Company; Home Insurance Company; Baltimore American Insurance; National Liberty Insurance Company; City of New York Insurance; New York Title & Mortgage; Gibraltar Fire & Marine Insurance; Tel-Autograph Corporation; Postal Telegraph Cable; Swift & Company Chicago; Bowery Savings Bank; Worthington Pump & Machinery; Commercial Cable; American Locomotive Company; Montreal Locomotive Works; Hudson & Manhattan Railroad; Montana, Wyoming & Southern Railroad; Norfolk & Southern Railroad; Shell Union Oil Company; Spreckles Sugar Corporation; Sweets Company of America; (assorted Who’s Who volumes).
Edward D. Duffield
Time Magazine, September 26, 1932, featured Pilgrims Society member Edward D. Duffield (Pilgrims list 1933) on its cover. He was a descendant of Jonathan Dickinson, the first president of Princeton University. From June 1932 to June 1933 Duffield was interim president of the major university.
The Who’s Who in America, 1930-1931, page 719, shows his info minus his secretive, arcane Pilgrims Society machinations.
Prudential was listed as a Silver Users Association member circa 2003. Guaranty Trust was the main subsidiary bank of J.P. Morgan & Company, since merged to form J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, the leading USA silver price antagonist.
George L. Harrison
The New York Times, August 15, 1934, page 25, “President Hears Banking Experts” reported George L. Harrison of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York conferred with FDR.
FDR later appointed Harrison, Pilgrims Society, an overseer of the silver using Manhattan Project that developed the atomic bomb. Harrison was in on the decision to deploy it without warning against Japan.
The 1952 Who’s Who, page 1055, shows Harrison a member of The Pilgrims executive committee:
- a director of First National City Bank
- Harper & Brothers Publishers
- RCA Corporation
- Life Insurance Association of America
- Institute of Life Insurance
- member New York State Banking Board
- trustee Columbia University
- Foreign Service Educational Foundation
- chairman advisory committee on fiscal and monetary problems to the Economic Cooperation Administration and chairman Interim Policy Committee on Atomic Energy.
Frederick H. Ecker
Frederick H. Ecker, Pilgrims Society and member of the deviously named National Security League.
- He became chairman of Metropolitan Life Insurance in 1936
- director of Chicago, Illinois & Western Railroad
- Denver & Western Rio Grande Railroad
- Saint Louis & San Francisco Railway
- Western Pacific Railroad
- Interborough Rapid Transit
- Wheeling & Eastern Railway
- New York Casualty Company
- Provident Loan Society
- Union Dime Savings Bank
- Consolidated Edison of New York
- Greater New York Fund
- the anti-silver New York State Chamber of Commerce
- the silver suppressing Chase National Bank
Additionally, he was a director of United States & Foreign Securities Corporation, from whence came Pilgrims Society member Douglas Dillon, who as Treasury Secretary raked in megamillions of silver coins from banks in the mid 1960’s.
Transfer of Silver to United States
Under Nationalization Order
Hoarders of Silver
I hope this is starting to catch the reader’s interest, as the landmark 312 page summer 2009 item on FDR’s gold and silver seizure was ignored by the gatekeeper of a particular metals organization which evinces that it regards itself (himself) as the top site in the PM universe; yet, nothing distantly comparable has been offered anywhere else.
I’ve heard privately from members positive statements about my work; that’s what matters, not personality issues. We should all work together to prevent a second metals nationalization rather than bickering about matters of immeasurably less importance. Actually it would be a PRIVITIZATION because this private (secret) group would be behind it — The Pilgrims Society with their methods of "seizing the wealth necessary" for their neo-British Empire purposes, which includes destruction of potential competitors by means of prevention of capital formation outside the sphere of their influence! At right is a small example of the content of the Summer 2009 item, 312 pages, "Metals Confiscation Facts And Prospects," from the Commercial & Financial Chronicle.
Not only did the secret organization use the President and Treasury Secretary to “seize the wealth necessary,” they caused to be published the “Hoarders of Silver” document.
By the time frightened Americans had been squeezed of all the silver (gold was seized first) the nationalization had claimed some 113,031,000 ounces of silver!
That would be like ordering 113,031 investors (silver savers) today holding 1,000 ounces each to turn it in.
No one, not the Silver Users Association or the Treasury, knows just how much silver Americans own today. I believe it’s more than 113MOZ. The bad boys would have a better idea than any of us, but would intentionally overstate the amount. Was all the silver owned by Americans turned in under FDR’s illegal, anti-Jacksonian order? Not at all; however, there is no way to know how much was kept back. While coin silver was exempted then, it would certainly not be exempted if The Pilgrims Society pulls this "seizure of the wealth necessary" stunt again.
At the time FDR said the silver was needed in the Treasury so as to form a specified ratio to gold as monetary base for the currency. Yet, as of the very start of his felonious administration in March 1933, Americans couldn’t even retain gold notes, let alone redeem those for hard gold! There is no monetary base if convertibility is denied!
Isaac Seligman, charter Pilgrims Society member in 1903, international financier with Rothschild links, had a kid brother named Edwin (1861-1939) who was an economics professor at Columbia University under the tenure of Nicholas Murray Butler, then also president of The Pilgrims United States.
Here’s what Edwin had to say about unbacked paper currency (New York Times, November 1, 1933):
Declaring that even a larger issue of paper currency need not cause alarm, Professor Seligman predicts restoration of the nation’s economic equilibrium. In all probability, there will be no uncontrolled inflation, Professor Seligman predicts.
It is true that there may be in store for us a larger issue of paper currency and that, too, before very long. BUT THIS NEED UPSET NO ONE. NOR NEED ANYONE FEAR BUDGETARY INFLATION ON THE GROUND THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS SPENDING HUGE SUMS AND BORROWING THE MONEY TO DO SO.
Nationalize gold and silver, then flood the nation with inflation notes, gradually reducing the middle class to serfdom over a multi-generation period; this has transpired! Professor Seligman, fiat money economist, brother of a Pilgrims Society member (the hidden faction that benefits from inflation).
This corrupt professor was president of the anti-silver American Economic Association, 1902-1904 ; finance consultant to the League of Nations, 1922-1923; and a member of the Royal Economic Society.
George Foster Peabody
Pilgrims Society silver stealer
George Foster Peabody, Pilgrims Society, and Franklin Roosevelt were friends; naturally their views agreed.
- Peabody was a partner in Spencer, Trask & Company, which played a leading role in financing electric lighting corporations and railroad construction in the West and in Mexico.
- Peabody held large interests in Edison Electric
- Director of General Electric and many other corporations including:
- Mexican Metallurgical Company
- Mexican Lead Company
- Mexican Coke & Coal Company
- Broadway Realty
- Southern Improvement Company
- Peabody was director of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, 1914-1921.
- Trustee of the University of Georgia
- Treasurer of the Southern Education Board
- Director of John D. Rockefeller’s (Pilgrims Society) General Education Board
- During 1896-1905 he was treasurer of the Democratic National Committee
The December 10, 1933 New York Times, section II, page 4, "Peabody Defends the President, Declaring Roosevelt Seldom Errs".
During his career in banking and policies, Mr. Peabody added, HE HAD A PART IN DEFEATING BIMETALLISM and reached the conclusion that it is absurd to depend on a metal not possible of expansion or contraction as a standard of value. The banker remarked that he called himself a radical. Mr. Roosevelt has made as few mistakes as any man I’ve heard of.
By "defeating bimetallism" he meant, "excluding silver from the monetary system." By "expansion or contraction" he meant "boom and bust," which is of course a great way for Pilgrims Society financiers to "seize the wealth necessary," as in the October 1929 stock market crash.
William Alexander Hewitt
Pilgrims Society member George Foster Peabody was according to George Foster Peabody at Wikipedia, "an unofficial counselor to many government officials" (he passed word to them as to what to do) and was on the executive committee of the Indianapolis Monetary Convention of 1897, an anti-silver event, and backed the "Gold Democrats" against silver populist William Jennings Bryan.
Just after members of The Pilgrims Society of Great Britain wrecked the world economy by demonetizing India’s silver and dumping it on world markets and going off the gold standard in September 1931, members of The Pilgrims Society of the United States moved to seize gold and silver from Americans!
They additionally conspired to drive China off its centuries old silver standard, badly damaged by Great Britain’s attack against silver, by means of the Silver Purchase Act of 1934, which while helping American mining interests, sucked so much silver out of China that by November 3, 1935, China abandoned silver money.
Huge amounts of silver were still widely dispersed in China, later seized by the Communists, and gradually dumped (leased) onto world markets at the behest of these Pilgrims Society members with their control over the offices of the President and the Secretary of State, and helped along by means of front organizations such as the China-America Council of Commerce & Industry (Thomas J. Watson Sr. of IBM and The Pilgrims Society) and successor organizations including the National Council for U.S./China Trade (William Alexander Hewitt, Pilgrims Society, director Chase Manhattan Bank and A.T. & T. who married into the Deere fortune of agricultural equipment manufacturers)
I can’t buy the concept that anyone in China has used JPMorganChase as "dupes" in silver. It’s these Anglo-Americans who are deeply conspiratorial, far more so than "inscrutable Orientals."
In any case, it’s our domestic Pilgrims Society members who stand atop the American establishment who we have to be concerned about concerning our metals ownership rights and planned attacks against those rights from excessive taxation to nationalization.
Imagine seizing precious assets of fantastic tangible worth and "paying" for those assets in paper credits they have the Federal Reserve conjure out of nothing! IF CERTAIN METALS SITES DON’T LINK THIS, ASK THEM TO SUBORDINATE PERSONALITY ISSUES TO PROPERTY RIGHTS! Remember I have nothing to sell and accept no contributions — this is a 100% nonprofit effort on my part.
James D. Zirin and wife Marlene Hess
James D. Zirin, Wall Street attorney with Sidley Austin LLP (1,600 attorneys), who gave $574,938 to Obama 2008 see www.opensecrets.org is currently on the executive committee of The Pilgrims, New York, served as a United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York under Robert M. Morgenthau, son of this gold and silver stealing Treasury Secretary. Robert Morgenthau grew up knowing Franklin Roosevelt!
Robert also was with the Pilgrims Society law firm of Patterson, Belknap & Webb (200 attorneys). Morgenthau recently retired at age 90 as District Attorney of New York County, succeeded by Cyrus Vance Jr., son of Pilgrims Society member Cyrus Vance, Secretary of State, 1977-1980, son in law of John Sloane, another member!
Zirin (seen with his wife Marlene Hess of the Amerada Hess oil and gas fortune, previously supervised by Pilgrims Society member William S. Renchard of Chemical Bank) has worked for Merrill Lynch, Citibank and the Rockefeller Foundation and is a member of the executive committee of The Pilgrims Society currently.
Much has been said of Blythe Masters of JPMorganChase being the key string puller in the silver short fraud. It’s troubling enough that she’s from England, but consider also that Blythe Sally Jess Masters stated her as a director as of May 2010 of the National Dance Institute (what’s that got to do with silver stealers - PLENTY!)
At citylife.com the New York Times we see Jenny Morgenthau, granddaughter of Pilgrims Society member, grand scale silver stealer Henry Morgenthau Jr. is an NDI director and also at National Dance Institute we notice a Rothschild on the NDI board. (Editor's Note: Profile page has been scrubbed at citylife.com)
In scouting for an image of Blythe, I received a Norton Anti-Virus notice several times that an attack on my computer was blocked! In any event she’s under orders from Jamie Dimon, who I’d bet my last zinc cent is a silver stealing Pilgrims Society member. As any Pilgrims Society member would be head of such a major middle class smashing institution like JPMorganChase, he’s also a trustee of the Rockefeller controlled University of Chicago and a director of the anti-precious metals Federal Reserve Bank of New York. NDI could provide for contact in an innocuous setting.
There are enough instances of Pilgrims Society members taking actions against silver to establish a decisive pattern of planned intent to cripple silver prices, to destroy silver as currency, to inhibit ownership of gold and silver from the highest official levels, that we will resume showing a procession of these revolting thieves as follows, and it is no complete listing, for in addition to concerns of limitations of readers time, information on who these Pilgrims are remains fragmentary.
Leaked lists, a few rare volumes, one instance of Congressional testimony in 1940 and a few other sources such as Who’s Who volumes are all we have to go on. I am grateful to Mr. Joel Van Der Reijden of the Institute for the Study of Globalization for forwarding to me a 1980 list of The Pilgrims in exchange for the 1969 Pilgrims of Great Britain list I was able to provide to him. He in turn appreciates his quiet source in the U.S. who came across the list and was so thoughtful as to forward it to him. We are hopeful of additional cooperative efforts in times to come.
I was mentioned at The Mail Archive.
Just before I wanted to upload all the updates, including those done in the 1001 and the Jason Group membership lists, Charles Savoie, the No. 1 Pilgrims Society researcher, decided to share some new info he had come across. One of those things is this simple (quite amusing) New York Daily News gossip article, which confirms the membership of Richard C. Holbrooke and Peter G. Peterson. As you can see in my intro article, I have long suspected Peterson of being a Pilgrims Society member. Talk about having some good luck.
If you ask me, Van Der Reijden is the number 1; so, by such examples, may the metals community make their goals the primary importance, rather than personality contests or popularity rankings. Peterson is possibly David Rockefeller’s single most important functionary.
I offer $5,000 for any Pilgrims list dated 2000 or more recently, subject to verification by genealogy, institutional, corporate and diplomatic connections. We need to know who the high Crown agents are currently in North America.
This is no incitement to any illegal act; you will be asked how you came by the document! The most appropriate means to obtain the list is by Congressional subpoena, since the organization is not cooperative. Let them refuse and be held in contempt of Congress! This is the best route to follow; otherwise the incentive stands.
Sir Henry Strakosch
Sir Henry Strakosch, Pilgrims of Great Britain and chairman of Union Corporation of South Africa, gold miners, starting in 1924, was a member of the Royal Commission on Indian Currency and Finance that recommended India’s silver be demonetized and the country switched to a fake gold standard, under which only persons holding the equivalent of over $8,000 U.S. in paper rupees could exchange them for gold.
China Weekly Review Nov 15, 1930, page 395 stated:
THE BRITISH HAVE TAKEN STEPS TO PREVENT THE NATIVES FROM HOARDING GOLD and thus draining empire vaults. INDIAN CURRENCY IS REDEEMABLE IN GOLD BUT ONLY IN LARGE AMOUNTS. IF ONE HAS $8,000 IN PAPER MONEY HE CAN GO TO THE BANK AND GET ITS EQUIVALENT IN GOLD. BUT NOT MANY INDIANS ARE LIKELY TO ACCUMULATE AS MUCH AS $8,000.
The Mining Congress Journal, September 1930, page 681, reported that the British Empire controlled 71.4 percent of world gold output; undoubtedly in their rationale for attacking silver!
Strakosch was a member of the anti-silver Stable Money Association, along with silver user George Eastman of Eastman-Kodak!
Hilton Young - first Baron Kennet
Hilton Young, the first Baron Kennet, Pilgrims Society, headed the Royal Commission.
Baron Kennet later chaired the Iraq Currency Board going into World War II.
He had railroad, real estate and timber interests, joined the boards of English Electric and Hudson’s Bay Company.
Hilton Young was also a friend of funny money economist John Maynard Keynes, who testified before the Royal Commission that silver was no longer needed.
The report of the Royal Commission on Indian Currency and Finance was submitted to Lord Irwin who was then the British Viceroy of India.
Irwin proceeded to oversee the melting and dumping of Indian silver rupees on the world market by the hundreds of millions of ounces.
Thus crashing the silver price to an all time historical low of 24.5 cents per ounce in February 1931.
The report of the Royal Commission
on Indian Currency and Finance
This dumping and crashing of the price triggered the Great Depression.
- By wiping out the majority of the buying power of India and the Far East and China.
- To whom American industry could no longer export goods.
- Throwing millions of workers out of work.
- (and into the freezing cold in wintertime.)
- Forcing Mexican silver mine workers to choose banditry as the only alternative to starvation after their government couldn’t send in enough corn they could subsist on.
- AND CAUSING INTENTIONAL SEVERE DAMAGE TO SILVER HOLDERS AND MINERS ALL OVER THE WORLD.
ENGLAND HAS CAUSED THIS HAVOC TO THE WORLD’S FINANCES
— John Brisben Walker, founder of Cosmopolitan Magazine, New York Times, February 3, 1931, page 24.
SILVER MINERS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD ARE BADLY HIT
— China Weekly Review, January 17, 1931, page 244.
NONE KNEW BETTER THAN ENGLISHMEN THAT SILVER AS THE PEOPLE’S MONEY WAS BEING RUINED
— letter to New York Times, September 14, 1932, page 20.
- Grand Commander of the Star of India.
- Became The Earl of Halifax.
- President of The Pilgrims of Great Britain, 1950-1958.
- His grandfather was British Secretary of State for India.
- His family looted India and China for generations.
- He and his family facilitated India's looting for their blue blooded cronies.
The first Earl of Halifax, 1661-1715, became Lord of the Treasury in 1692 and according to Wikipedia "the national debt originated from his proposal."
The first Earl of Halifax introduced the bill creating the Bank of England in 1694 and became Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Sir Basil Blackett, Pilgrims of Great Britain, authored "Planned Money" (1932) and was a director of De Beers Consolidated Diamond Mines and the Bank of England.
He was a member of the Anglo-French Financial Commission and an earlier Royal Commission on Indian Finance and Currency, 1913-1914, which paved the way for the sabotage against silver done by the successor commission in 1925-1926.
Responsibility for the lowered value of silver is blamed by Reed Smoot, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee upon “a great power,” which he did not name.
— New York Times, October 1, 1930, page 28
The fact that the British Government for India had SEVERAL HUNDRED MILLION OUNCES THAT IT MIGHT DUMP ON THE MARKETS OF THE WORLD NOT ONLY REDUCED THE PRICE OF SILVER ONE-HALF BUT, BY ITS THREAT TO FURTHER INDEFINITELY REDUCE SUCH PRICE, DESTROYED ITS VALUE FOR CREDIT. The result was inevitable. PANIC EXISTS AMONG MORE THAN HALF THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD WHOSE BUYING POWER IS MEASURED SOLELY IN SILVER. It has cut in two the purchasing power of China, Mexico, South America, Asia and several European countries. It has made credit transactions with such silver using countries practically impossible. The reaction has been felt throughout the world.
— New York Times, December 7, 1930, section III, pages 1-2
Minister Kung Recommends Adoption of Gold Standard.
— Headline from Kuo Min News Agency — Nanking, January 15, 1930 which goes on:
Peace and general security throughout the country so as to give impetus to trade and industry in the fundamental and most effective measure for relieving the present financial crisis in consequence of the declining silver market, Dr. H.H. Kung, Minister of Industry, Commerce and Labor, said at a press interview today. Minister Kung further stated that the Government had been informed that CERTAIN UNSCRUPULOUS MANIPULATORS IN SHANGHAI HAD BEEN PURPOSEFULLY UPSETTING THE SILVER MARKET FOR PERSONAL GAINS and the report is now under investigation so that the culprits may be properly dealt with.
Kung was another version of Charlie Soong — Kung’s father in law (1863-1918)
He was the first international student at Duke University — endowed by charter Pilgrims Society member Benjamin Duke of the American Tobacco Company fortune. Duke Energy, a giant utility, is their fortune’s cornerstone today. Later, Soong transferred to Vanderbilt University, site of the anti-silver American Economic Association.
One of Soong’s sons became chairman of the Bank of Canton. The World Money Power, preparatory to destroying China’s silver system installed its agents in key positions.
There was no problem of British India deluging world markets with silver in order to wreck prices! The profiteers referred to in Shanghai — what was the problem with them — were they long silver?
- Kung was a Yale University graduate — same effect as Soong coming from Harvard.
- Kung became Minister of Finance, 1933-1944.
- Premier of the Chinese Republic, 1938-1939.
- Governor of the China Central Bank, 1933-1945.
- And guess what! Kung was Soong’s brother in law!
H.H. Kung, betrayer of his people to anti-silver Western banking interests of The Pilgrims Society, who in 1935 as head of the Chinese central bank prohibited the circulation of silver dollars AND BANNED PRIVATE OWNERSHIP OF SILVER and then the “Pinyin” was issued, a fiat paper note meaning “legal tender”.
The April 5, 1931 China Weekly Review, page 164 noted:
Even in 1930 when silver had reached the then all-time low of 34 cents an ounce, BRITISH INDIA UNDER SUCH POLICY THREW ON AN ALREADY SATURATED MARKET 29,500,000 OUNCES OF SILVER. THE LAST THREAD OF CONFIDENCE AND HOPE IN THE MINDS OF THE PEOPLE OF THE SILVER USING COUNTRIES WAS BROKEN AND SPECULATORS IN ALL COUNTRIES COMMENCED TO DUMP SILVER ON THE MARKET.
Sir Philip Sassoon
Sir Philip Sassoon, Pilgrims Society, whose mother was Caroline Rothschild, inherited a massive fortune founded in the British opium trade, in which the drug grown in India was sent into China, which caused the two Opium Wars.
Payment for the drug was demanded in silver — in one large scale incident of violence, British forces opened fire after payment in silver was made, when their assurance was given to not attack if the silver was delivered (See “Silver Users And Opium” also The Chinese Opium Wars and British-Jews and Sassoon family at Wikipedia.
I would have phrased some accounts differently in places; however the actual facts stand as is — the Sassoons dealt in tens of thousands of chests of opium! (Weight unknown but considerable).
The New York Daily News, October 15, 1858 made reference to the "Parliamentary Blue Book" which claimed that British export-import trade with just the two cities of Canton and Shanghai, for the years 1844 through 1856, amounted to more than 437,700,000 pounds sterling, a truly fantastic sum; this, from the people who today control the world's money system!
British opium “exports” into China peaked in 1880 with 105,580 chests!
The Sassoons were not alone in that filthy, murderous business, as we will see later!
Family entities included
- Sassoon Banking Company of China & London
- Eastern Bank
- Bank of China
- Imperial Bank of Persia
- Bank of China & Japan
- British Burma Petroleum and others.
T.V. Soong, son of Charlie Soong’s sellout banker family we just read about was the Sassoon agent running the Bank of China.
- We can only guess at the immense amounts of silver sucked out of China during the opium trade and how they were used to depress silver valuations
- Instead of blaming Comstock Lode silver for the Panic of 1893, it could actually have been British opium silver that was the source of asserted oversupply
- The main cause was coordinated banker whipsawing of the financial system, which they and their pet economists then blamed on silver!
- The Pilgrims of Great Britain leaked list, 1980, shows The Duke of Leinster, a Sassoon relation. The Wikipedia entry on Sir Philip Sassoon has no mention of his opium and silver fortune.
This organization, The Pilgrims Society, known to so few outsiders, has dragged the world towards fiat currencies, destabilized silver and gold as money, annihilated the finances of billions, and will stop at nothing till its goal is realized; and what is that? To be able to say and have carried out things such as “I WANT THAT MAN KILLED” and “BRING THAT WOMAN TO ME;” absolute power, that’s all the dignified bastards want! Review the following quotations and be convinced as to their war on monetary silver.
The natural law of supply and demand, reasonably constant over a period of a century, WAS THROWN INTO CHAOS BY THE SILVER DELUGE, AND FALLING PRICES ROBBED WITHIN A YEAR ONE HALF OF THE HUMAN RACE OF ONE HALF OF THEIR WEALTH AND THEIR PURCHASING POWER.
— Nevada Senator Key Pittman, China Weekly Review, January 31, 1931, page 318
BUT THE WORST IS YET TO COME, BECAUSE THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT FOR INDIA STILL HAS SEVERAL HUNDRED MILLION OUNCES OF SILVER MONEY THAT IT INTENDS TO CAST UPON THE MARKET OF THE WORLD IN THE FORM OF BULLION. THE MARKET CANNOT CONSUME IT. THERE IS NOT A DEMAND FOR IT, AND SUCH A THREAT WILL HOLD DOWN THE PRICE OF SILVER AND IF CARRIED OUT MAY ABSOLUTELY DESTROY ITS VALUE AS A MEASURE OF WEALTH, AS MONEY, AND AS AN INSTRUMENT FOR THE CARRYING ON OF TRADE AND COMMERCE.
— China Weekly Review, January 31, 1931, page 336
Nevada Senator Key Pittman, in the China Weekly Review, January 31, 1931, page 336, stated:
THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT FOR INDIA BY ITS POLICY HAS STRUCK DOWN THE WEALTH OF INDIA AND DESTROYED THE PURCHASING POWER OF ITS SUBJECTS. It has not only injured its own subjects but it has equally and in the same manner destroyed the purchasing power of China, South America, Mexico, and every silver using country in the world. This has disastrously reduced the export trade of the United States and every other country. The producers of silver, although a small group by comparison with all of the other groups affected, have suffered even more deeply than the producers of other commodities. MINES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD HAVE BEEN COMPELLED TO CLOSE, ADDING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF IDLE MEN TO THE HORDE OF UNEMPLOYED.
EFFORTS WERE MADE TO INDUCE THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT FOR INDIA TO MODIFY SUCH POLICY, BUT SUCH EFFORTS FAILED.
— China Weekly Review, January 31, 1931, page 336
THE PROGRAM OF THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT FOR INDIA HAS BEEN DESTRUCTIVE OF THE WEALTH, PURCHASING POWER AND PROSPERITY NOT ONLY OF THE PEOPLE OF INDIA BUT OF EVERY COUNTRY THAT USES SILVER FOR MONEY AND INJURIOUS TO THE PROSPERITY OF THE WORLD.

In Foreign Affairs, publication of the Council On Foreign Relations (CFR, direct unofficial subsidiary of The Pilgrims Society), flunky Herbert B. Elliston, in “The Silver Problem,” April 1931, pages 441-456 vomited out the following banker blather:
The history of the demonetization of silver goes back over a hundred years. IT HAS MARCHED HAND IN HAND WITH THE IMPROVEMENT OF LIVING STANDARDS.
Scum lapping shit bag economists like Elliston have no scruples as to lying; we already saw that the silver demonetization of 1873 “caused millions of deaths” by starvation! He had no gripe over the British suspending conversion of paper rupee notes into silver! In America, the unemployed relied on soup kitchens to subsist. Another convincer of Pilgrims Society attacks on silver causing joblessness.
MAKING MILLIONS POOR IS THE PILGRIMS ORGASM!
THEIR HEADS ARE FULL OF GREEDY DEMONS, NOT PROTOPLASM!
LET THEM READ THIS, THEY’LL HAVE A WEIRD SPASM!
HOPEFULLY THEY’RE NEAR THE EDGE OF A CHASM!
After the 1918 unrest over note redemption, British military presence in India was increased so as to be able to screw silver over!
Elliston, while at the CFR, worked for John W. Davis, president of the CFR, 1921-1933. Davis, Pilgrims Society member, was Solicitor General of the United States, 1913-1918, arguing for the government at the Supreme Court; and was Ambassador to England, 1918-1921, during which time he helped implement the Pittman Act of 1918, providing his “Pilgrim Partners” with 200 million ounces of silver so they could maintain control over British India.
John W. Davis
1924 Democrat candidate for President
Davis was chief counsel to J.P. Morgan & Company, trustee Rockefeller Foundation and director of American Telephone & Telegraph. His firm was Davis, Polk & Wardwell, which today “works with many of the leading companies of the world.” (see: The Firm | Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP) The boss of anti-silver activist Herb Elliston, John W. Davis, was the 1924 Democrat candidate for President.
As of the 1952 Who’s Who, page 736, Elliston was a member of the CFR and the Cosmos Club in D.C. plus the anti-silver Royal Economic Society and the anti-silver American Economic Association and was editor of the Washington Post with a Pulitzer Prize in 1949.

The British Government of India commenced selling silver in 1927. BY THE END OF MARCH 1931 APPROXIMATELY 101,000,000 OUNCES HAD BEEN SOLD.
— Page 811 Asia Magazine December 1931
The Pan American Union had a more accurate tally.
Silver in the West and the East.
— Bulletin of the Pan American Union at Washington, D.C., December 1932, page 835 reported:
Sales commenced in 1927 and by March 31, 1932, 127,584,564 ounces of silver had been sold. CLEARLY, THIS INJURED THE PRICE OF SILVER.
The feature noted that from 1900 inclusive through 1929, 863.4MOZ was used for coinage in British India; recall that at least 200MOZ of that came via the Pittman Act of 1918. The same Bulletin, December 1932, page 847 commented:
SILVER HAS COME UPON EVIL DAYS, AND ITS FUTURE IS SURROUNDED BY UNCERTAINTY.
Silver leasing or silver dumping has certainly been around for many, many years. According to a former ambassador to Germany, the British dumped 640,000,000 silver ounces out of India, causing an 80% drop in purchasing power of silver currency countries (New York Times,, October 9, 1931, page 16). The exact figure will never be known and the 640MOZ figure could be overblown, but it was more than ample to achieve British plans to drive the world closer to full fiat. Before the dumping out of India started, silver was 65 cents an ounce.
The fall in silver valuations caused the Great Depression.
- The crash of the U.S. stock market in October 1929 was just another blow on the way down, caused by a sudden tightening of credit on the part of the British linked central bank.
- With over half the world’s people on a silver basis, their use of silver as money was struck at hard by the appalling British conspiracy.
- People in many nations were thrown out of work because silver using people’s ability to pay had been sabotaged. Of course this also wrecked their basis for use of silver as credit.
Sir Austen Chamberlain
The Earl of Birkenhead
New York Times, May 30, 1931, page 2:
In spite of a request by the United States Senate that the President take steps to call an international conference to consider the silver problem, the administration has, for reasons that are undoubtedly well considered, taken no action.
For reasons that are undoubtedly Pilgrims Society related, Hoover took no action!
Sir Austen Chamberlain, Pilgrims Society of Great Britain, was Foreign Secretary, 1924-1929 and backed the Royal Commission’s recommendations — this was the same Austen Chamberlain who as Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1920 shoveled 70 million ounces of silver onto world markets for price suppression purposes (The Times, London, January 15, 1931, page 18). The silver came from Britain’s coinage debasement from .925 to .500 silver content as of 1920.
WE HAVE FOLLOWED A POLICY THAT HAD FOR ITS PURPOSE THE DESTRUCTION OF SILVER VALUES.
— New York Times, April 23, 1933, section 2, page 7.
The Earl of Birkenhead was Secretary of State for India, and backed Lord Irwin.
Birkenhead, Pilgrims Society, was described as "SOMEONE TO BE AVOIDED AS AN ENEMY" on page 166 of the rare, undated (early to mid-1930’s, Hutchinson & Company, London) volume "Pilgrims And Pioneers" by Sir Harry Brittain, a founder of The Pilgrims Society.
The Earl of Birkenhead, seen to the right in his earlier post as Lord Chancellor in medieval accoutrements, played his role in causing the boundless misery of The Great Depression by smashing the silver money systems of India and China.
BRITISH MANIPULATION OF SILVER HAS CAUSED GREAT HARM.

SILVER HAS REACHED THE LOWEST POINT IN HISTORY WITH THE RESULT THAT THOUSANDS OF CHINESE AND FOREIGN CONCERNS WERE RUINED.
— Mining Congress Journal, April 1930, page 284:
THE CONTINUING DOWNWARD TREND OF SILVER PRICES CONSTITUTES A GRAVE MENACE TO WORLD TRADE. Silver in world markets is at the lowest price in history. No industry is suffering more from declining price levels than is the nonferrous metal mining industry. We have advocated the calling of an international conference on silver by those countries which produce four fifths of the world’s silver — Peru, Bolivia, Mexico, Canada and the United States.
Colorado Congressman William R. Eaton speaking in the House of Representatives, May 1, 1930 (New York Times, May 11, 1930, section III, page 5):
THE SILVER MARKET IS AN ABSOLUTE CLOSED MONOPOLY AS IT IS NOW CONDUCTED, CONTROLLED BY LONDON. BUT IT IS FREQUENTLY SAID BY SILVER PRODUCERS THAT THIS IS AN ARBITRARY EXERCISE OF THE MONOPOLISTIC CONTROL OF NEW YORK.
Both beliefs applied — London and New York, each having branches of a nearly unknown two part organization of mega-thieves who “seize the wealth necessary,” have suppressed silver for generations!
Nevada Senator Key Pittman, New York Times, May 18, 1931, page 12
THE FACT IS THAT A FOOLISH DUMPING POLICY IN INDIA IS DISRUPTING THE MONETARY SYSTEM OF HALF THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD AND ADDING TO THE STAGNATION OF TRADE EVERYWHERE. THAT IS THE DIRECT CAUSE OF THE WORLD DEPRESSION. THIS DUMPING AND THREAT OF UNLIMITED DUMPING DOES NOT ONLY CUT IN TWO THE BUYING POWER OF HALF THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD, BUT IT HAS DESTROYED THE CREDIT OF EVERY SILVER USING PEOPLE.
The New York Times, July 10, 1928, page 32, “French Lose On Silver,” subtitled “Government Will Pay but 40 Cents on Dollar for Demonetized Coins” noted:
Paris — The silver coins hoarded for years by French peasants in their proverbial woolen socks will not be redeemed at par, but at two-fifths of their pre-war value. The Government has fixed the ratio, effective next Monday, for the silver pieces which have been demonetized under the stabilization bill, the value being set on the basis of the bullion value.
Consequently, FRENCHMEN WHO DID NOT TRUST BANKS, THINKING THAT ANY HARD MONEY WAS ALWAYS WORTH PAR, WILL GET ONLY FORTY CENTS ON THE DOLLAR FOR THEIR SILVER COINS.
(The lowered bullion value was attributable 100% to the British dumping silver out of India that started over a year before that — and to no other cause! You can be sure that the authors of the stabilization bill knew what was taking place; maybe many of them even approved of it!)
(Sick tricks such as this won’t work today — there isn’t any silver of any magnitude left to dump. Even if all the metal in Barclay’s ETF “seeped” out into the market, with more investors realizing the best silver is that which they privately hold, it couldn’t dent the price by too much for very long. It could frighten out the uninformed, however!)
The New York Times, September 16, 1928, page 17, “France Gets Hoarded Gold,” subtitled, “97 Tons of it and 500 Tons of Silver Have Been Turned in by Peasants” revealed:
Paris — (AP) — Five hundred tons of silver coins have been turned into the French Treasury since stabilization of the franc was decreed, and Premier Poincare announced that the silver 1, 2 and 5 franc pieces were NO LONGER LEGAL TENDER. Ninety-seven tons of gold coin likewise have found their way into the coffers of the Treasury. Bank officials say that the peasant hoarders prefer gold to silver and must still have billions of gold francs buried in their gardens and cellars.
The December 24, 1929 New York Times, page 23 stated:
Although it is expected that it will be many years before silver is abandoned as a monetary unit, reports have been current in banking circles that France may insist on the gold standard for Indo-China.
What we find in French Indochina (what we now know as Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, which colonial empire ended in 1954) were coins of zinc; copper; nickel; and aluminum (see: Coins and Banknotes of Vietnam and Indochina)
However, as regards the opium trade in those areas, silver was still demanded as payment and was called the "Opium" Taels.
The December 22, 1930 New York Times, page 30, shows the corrupting British influence in French financial circles:
It is also believed that any concerted plan in the direction of supporting silver would mean reversion to the bimetallic theory, WHICH NO LONGER HAS ANY SUPPORT IN FRANCE, AND WHICH IS CONSIDERED, IN VIEW OF FINANCIAL CONDITIONS OF THE PERIOD, TO BE AN ABSURDITY.
(Silver had huge support in France, but not among the corrupted, infiltrated, bought-off leadership. Adverse financial conditions of the period were caused by demonetization of silver. Then the crooks blamed the victim for the crime!) Yes, any bankers anywhere would be tempted to act against hard money, even had Britain never existed.
It would take another essay to discuss the Latin Monetary Union, which lasted from 1865 to 1927 (when Great Britain’s silver attack intensified). These nations used silver and gold coins for currency and included:
Lord Arthur Salter
Lord James Stanhope
Silver Reaches A New Low Level
— Headline from the China Weekly Review, March 8, 1930, page 49, which goes on to report:
Exchange, by which is meant the price of silver in terms of gold, and vice versa which has always been one of the main points of business in China has during recent months become a matter of much more than ordinary importance, owing to the continued decline of the price of silver. Now on top of a still further decline there have come sudden jerks upwards and downwards, so that businessmen, importers, exporters, brokers and bankers, are kept keyed up to high tension, not knowing from moment to moment what is likely to happen next.
The price of bar silver dropped to 19.125 pence per ounce in London, March 1. THIS WAS THE LOWEST PRICE EVER REACHED SINCE RECORDS HAVE BEEN KEPT. In Shanghai where all imports and exports have to go through an exchange transaction, and where in addition there is huge speculation in gold bars, the rates for a short time went so low that a gold dollar was worth a little more than three Mexican dollars. THE SUDDEN DROP WAS ATTRIBUTED TO THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT INDIA DECIDED TO LEVY A TAX ON SILVER.
Lord Arthur Salter, Pilgrims Society of Great Britain, member of Parliament who became Baron Salter of Kidlington in 1953, opposed silver as money and argued against an international silver conference ("The Silver Problem," Political Science Quarterly, September 1931).
IT IS MONSTROUS THE WAY YOU HAVE DEPRESSED THE PRICE OF SILVER.
— Journal of Political Science, September 1931, page 329.
Lord James Stanhope, the 13th Earl of Chesterfield, son in law of the 6th Marquessof Sligo, who became leader of the House of Lords, was another Pilgrims Society member atop the British establishment who had icy feelings against monetary silver. He owned a 145 room estate.
The Times, London, December 8, 1932, page 7, had this to say:
LORD STANHOPE SAID THE GOVERNMENT DID NOT THINK BIMETALLISM WAS OF SUFFICIENT IMPORTANCE TO BE PLACED IN THE FOREFRONT OF MATTERS TO BE CONSIDERED AT THE WORLD ECONOMIC CONFERENCE.
The Commercial & Financial Chronicle, December 10, 1932, page 3954:
"British House of Lords Bars Bi-Metalism Move, Blocks Attempt to Put Issue Up to World Economic Conference” reported Lord Stanhope making a declaration that “if we could get 1,000,000,000 ounces of silver out of China and India” letting slip British intentions to continue silver dumping so prices could be managed at low levels, in their effort to discredit silver as money!
Silver suppressor Lord Stanhope had his way, as the 1933 World Economic Conference, summer 1933, held in London at the Geological Museum, was a Pilgrims Society farce benefitting The Money Power at dear cost of grief and poverty to the world (a subject for a whole other extensive research, for which I have tons of info and little time).
Pilgrims Society member Andrew Mellon, revealed in Congressional proceedings to be a heavy holder of shares in more than 300 corporations and whose property (source—Texas Congressman Wright Patman) was alleged to be "EQUAL TO THE ENTIRE VALUE OF ALL THE PROPERTY IN THE STATE OF TEXAS" (mentioned in book, cover of which is seen later on).
As Treasury Secretary 1921-1932, Mellon acted as a silver suppressor!
Mellon was the only man to hold off the Rockefellers in oil (Gulf Oil) and J.P. Morgan in steel (with Union Sharon Steel).
The New York Times, March 9, 1926, page 36, reported that Secretary Mellon rebuffed pleas from American miners that the Treasury comply with the balance of silver purchases at $1 per ounce provided for in the Pittman Act of 1918, cheating miners out of $14 million in revenues (a major sum in those days).
While Ambassador to Britain 1932-1933, Mellon refused to ask England to mollify its attacks on the silver price! As of January 24, 1935, New York Times, Mellon was on The Pilgrims executive committee. He was chairman of the War Finance Corporation and is known to have reaped colossal profits from World War I.
The Pilgrims Guest of Honor
Clipping at right is from The Times, London.
The Mining Congress Journal, November 1929, page 912 reported the American Silver Producers Association lost its lawsuit to force the government to complete its agreed silver purchases under the 1918 Pittman Act.
15 million ounces at $1 per ounce was in arrears; the Treasury refused to honor the remaining provisions of the Act when the world price was falling to well under half that level, thanks to British actions in India; and a corrupt Supreme Court led by Pilgrims Society member William H. Taft upheld the Treasury Department against the miners.
The Wikipedia entry on decisions handed down by the Taft Supreme Court censored that fact out of its enumeration.
President William H. Taft
William H. Taft, 1857-1930, was tapped for Skull & Bones Society at Yale, as was his younger brother, Henry W. Taft; both became Pilgrims Society members, the senior and by far the more powerful society. See the admission by Henry Taft on page 2521 of the 1940 Who’s Who.
The elder Taft was Governor of the Philippines, 1901-1903, which we took after the Spanish-American War; he was Secretary of War, 1904-1908; previously he was Solicitor General of the United States, who represents the Government at the Supreme Court, 1890-1892; as a Federal judge in 1893 he ruled in favor of Mellon’s aluminum trust; he became President of the United States, 1909-1913, supporting the Federal Reserve Act into and fighting for the 16th Amendment inflicting the Income Tax on Americans.
In 1920 William Taft became the first president of the English Speaking Union of the United States, a Crown organization always run by Pilgrims Society members whose function is to make English the universal language in a world government. In 1910 Taft appointed Charles Evans Hughes to the Supreme Court, who succeeded him as Chief Justice in 1930 and also became a silver suppressing Pilgrims Society member.
The Times, London, January 1, 1929, page 18 reported:
In the summer the Supreme Court at Washington rejected the application of the American Silver Producers Association to compel the United States Treasury to purchase 14,500,000 ounces still remaining under the Pittman Act. IT IS VERY IMPROBABLE THIS PURCHASE WILL EVER TAKE PLACE.
The Mining Congress Journal, March 1929, page 239, reported that a preliminary judge, Wendell Stafford, gave his opinion that the silver producers “did not have sufficient interest to bring the suit.” I wish I could have been there to tell the judge he didn’t have sufficient interest to summon firefighters if his house were ablaze. The deck was stacked; Stafford was a member of the Cosmos Club in D.C., a network organization.
Who's Who: Alexander Gilbert
Frank B. Kellogg
As one of the many “flashbacks” this documentary contains, here was another member prominent in banking who was a top level Taft supporter when Taft became President – Gilbert’s listing on page 900 of the 1914-1915 Who’s Who in America shows he was a Presidential elector for William Howard Taft (Pilgrims Society, Skull & Bones Society) and a director of two merged New York City banks, both individually very significant.
NEWS THAT BRITISH ARE UNWILLING TO END SILVER DUMPING BY INDIA ADDS TO DEPRESSION.
— New York Times, February 14, 1931, page 24.
The 1897-1942 Who Was Who in America, page 828, Mellon was:
Chairman ex-officio Federal Reserve Board, Farm Loan Board, U.S. Section of Pan American High Commission, also director U.S. Railroad Administration and member board Reconstruction Finance Corporation. The RFC’s gold dealings would make for an extensive investigation!
United States Secretary of State, 1925-1929 Frank B. Kellogg, Pilgrims Society, had no issue with British actions in silver; he called silver "unsound money" (New York Times, December 12, 1933, page 2) and that it represented "inflation" (New York Times, December 4, 1933, page2)
Kellogg, a former Senator and Ambassador to England and president of the American Bar Association 1912-1913, became a justice of the globalist World Court, 1930-1935.
In the Mining Congress Journal, September 1930, Francis Brownell, chairman of American Smelting and Refining, had an article, “The Silver Situation.” Let’s read some of his comments:
The fall in the price of silver of nearly 15 cents per ounce during the spring of 1930 caused rapidly increasing demoralization, particularly in China and Mexico. Mexico and other silver countries experienced a disastrous effect from the fall in the price of silver. The purchasing power of all silver countries became seriously impaired and their ability to acquire commodities of the United States and European countries substantially lessened. (page 677)
What was behind the collapse in the silver price at that time? Reading Brownell further we find:
In 1926, a Royal Commission on India’s monetary system recommended that India go to a gold exchange standard and gradually sell on the open market the excess stocks of silver, consisting of several hundred million ounces then owned by the Indian government.
At the time of publication of that report in the summer of 1926, silver was selling at about 65 cents per ounce. A RAPID FALL IN THE PRICE FOLLOWED, and in December of the same year the price averaged less than 53 and a half cents.
For a time after the War, when confidence in the monies of European nations had been so greatly destroyed, it seemed possible that a greater use of silver for monetary purposes would be necessary. BUT WHEN THE ROYAL COMMISSION’S REPORT BECAME KNOWN, THIS TENDENCY STOPPED. The European nations either greatly reduced or entirely abandoned the use of silver for subsidiary coinage.
The entire upper echelons of the British establishment were arrayed against silver as money; and remains so!
Neville Chamberlain, Chancellor of the Exchequer, said:
HE DID NOT THINK ANY USEFUL PURPOSE WOULD BE SERVED BY CALLING AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SILVER.
— Pilgrims Society member Chamberlain, World Money Power spokesman, quoted in the New York Times, November 18, 1931, page 11
The same dismal resistance to an international silver conference — to remedy the price collapse in silver intentionally caused by the British establishment (as always, Pilgrims Society members), was encountered from Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald (the truculent looking conspirator).
The April 23, 1933 New York Times, page 27, noted:
THE STRANGE COINCIDENCE OF MR. MACDONALD’S VISIT WITH AMERICA’S DEPARTURE FROM GOLD.
Quote from "Silver and Prosperity," Mining Congress Journal, July 1930, page 549:
THE PRESENT LOW PRICE OF SILVER AFFECTS 60 PERCENT OF THE WORLD’S POPULATION.
Sir Abe Bailey
According to Wikipedia, Sir Abe Bailey, 1864-1940, was an associate of Cecil Rhodes and "became one of the world’s wealthiest men" due to seizing diamond bearing lands in Rhodesia.
The Times, London, August 24, 1931, page 12 had PILGRIMS SOCIETY member, anti-silver financier, diamond tycoon Sir Abe Bailey making this bizarre mercenary statement:
I am surprised to see responsible statesmen advocating the remonetization of silver, which would add very little to currency AND IS A FORM OF CONFISCATION AND REPUDIATION.
Quote from Utah Silver Senator (from 1917-1941) William H. King, New York Times, June 14, 1931, page 22:
GREAT BRITAIN IS THE GREATEST OFFENDER IN THE SINISTER WORK OF DEBASING SILVER.
Philip Henry Kerr
Henry L. Stimson
The Commercial & Financial Chronicle of December 10, 1932 page 3954 quoted Montana silver Senator Burton K. Wheeler stating:
GREAT BRITAIN WOULD NOT AGREE TO MAKING SILVER A UNIVERSAL CURRENCY BASE.
The 11th Marquess of Lothian, Philip Henry Kerr, who was British Ambassador to Washington in 1939-1940, was another Pilgrims Society member.
As Undersecretary of State for India in 1931-1932 his input went into dumping silver out of British India onto world markets, killing silver values and attacking it as money in order to lead the world down hell’s road towards full fiat.
HUGE DECREASES IN THE WORLD’S TRADE ARE DUE TO THE DROP IN THE PRICE OF SILVER.
— El Economista, Mexico City, quoted in the New York Times, March 10, 1931, page 12.
Secretary of State, Pilgrims Society member Henry L. Stimson quoted in the New York Times, June 4, 1932, page 5, declared:
I HAVE NOT FELT THAT THE CALLING OF A CONFERENCE ON SILVER BY THE UNITED STATES WOULD SERVE ANY USEFUL PURPOSE.
It’s as if what Neville Chamberlain and Henry Stimson said to squelch a world silver conference was scripted for them by a Rothschild or a Rockefeller or a Windsor or Astor or some such! Yes, within The Pilgrims Society there exists a hard inner core of globalists, the others being their lieutenants, functionaries and tag-alongs!
THE PURCHASING POWER OF OVER 800,000,000 PEOPLE WAS SUDDENLY AND DRASTICALLY LOWERED BY GOVERNMENTAL ACTION IN REGARD TO SILVER.
— New York Times, May 11, 1931, page 2.
It was Britain’s attack against silver money that caused the Great Depression!
Striking out from London like an octopus that strangles!
Hidden financial alliances, danger that entangles!
Working secretly to take our silver away!
WHAT ARE THESE BANKER LOWLIFES PLANNING TODAY?
Yet we still see alleged experts in precious metals commentary carelessly stating that the stock market crash of October 1929 was the cause, when in fact it was a mere secondary causative agent!
Please do your historical homework before parroting statements propagated by fiat currency activists! If stock price downturns cause depressions, why worry about the absence of gold and silver from the monetary structure?
The silver countries or three fourths of the 2 billion of the people that live on earth, have been deprived of their purchasing power.
— R.J. Cromie, publisher, Vancouver Sun, quoted in China Weekly Review, October 18, 1930, page 236.
The buying power of silver countries lies dormant and AS A RESULT WORLD BUSINESS IS PARALYZED.
— R.J. Cromie, (ibid)
We Can't Take Care of Our Own
Anyone reviewing these documented details who still maintains that the October 1929 stock market crash caused the Great Depression must be suspect of being in the fiat money camp, or someone too proud to admit to have been wrong.
The decline in silver prices has caused losses estimated as high as $3,000,000,000 to Indian silver holders. Price declines in silver long preceded the general world depression.
— Current History, May 1932, pages 176-177
The evil influence of silver depreciation has been felt by all the countries of the world.
— Yue Kwei-Zun, director, Tung Yih Bank, Shanghai, China Weekly Review, June 11, 1932, page 49.
THE WORLD MONEY SYSTEM, WHICH HAD BEEN FUNCTIONING FROM TIME IMMEMORIAL ON THE TWO CYLINDERS OF GOLD AND SILVER, IS NOW BEING ASKED TO FUNCTION ON ONE CYLINDER ONLY.
— New York Congressman Andrew Somers, New York Times, front page, May 15, 1932
THE RESULTS OF THE SITUATION BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE DESTRUCTION OF SILVER ARE VERY ACUTE AND ARE RAPIDLY GROWING WORSE.
— House Subcommittee on Coinage, New York Times, May 15, 1932, page 26
The New York Times, June 27, 1932, page 25, “Cheap Silver Adds to Depression:”
Colonel Harden and Mr. Thomas agreed that the effects on American growers were tragic. “In one day recently,” said Mr. Thomas, “30,000 COTTON FARMS IN MISSISSIPPI WERE SOLD UNDER THE HAMMER.”
Millions of previously self supporting Americans were forced out into the streets, into tent cities and camping out in woodlands, and into rickety shacks unreliable for shielding from storms.
The 1960 Who’s Who, page 504, shows Thomas G. Chamberlain, who appeared in the leaked list of The Pilgrims for 1969. In his listing he stated membership in the Bankers Club, Manhattan, an anti-silver fraternity.
He toured the U.S. in 1919-1920 with William H. Taft, Pilgrims Society, who we just saw was another silver suppressor, in speaking engagements for The League to Enforce Peace, a Pilgrims Society propaganda bureau fighting for American membership in the British run League of Nations.
After that Chamberlain was with the Hoover for President campaign in California; in 1922-1923 he was “incorporator of cotton cooperative marketing associations throughout South, negotiating loans of over $100,000,000 from banks and War Finance Corporation;” meaning, apparently the financiers set up who knows how many farmers to start producing commodities, primarily cotton, in order to bust the wheels off their wagons later!
This Pilgrims Society is corrupt beyond redemption and must be phased out of existence. Chamberlain set up Pacific Egg Producers Cooperative and had peach, fig, egg and poultry producing interests all over the West coast and controlled the estate of Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain).
He could easily have used fees from his cotton loan syndications to secure his Western agricultural interests, which included Sun-Maid Raisin Growers. He was a member of the Republican National Committee and a director of the League of Nations Association.
FundingUniverse indicates that large consolidated interests acquired failing textile operations during the Depression.
Milliken & Company was connected to National City Bank, a top tier Pilgrims Society bank. Two Millikens were listed as charter Pilgrims Society members in 1903. The British attack on silver that started in India in 1926 was a repeat of the Crime of ’73 — the Coinage Act of 1873 that virtually demonetized silver and wrecked the finances of millions, allowing concentration of wealth in the hands of gold holders!
It of course stemmed from the Bank of England and its subversive lobbying of Congress during 1872!
SILVER ENJOYS A PRESTIGE OUT OF PROPORTION TO ITS IMPORTANCE.
Ogden R. Reid
— "Unimportance Of Silver,” World’s Work, N.Y., August 1931, page 21, by prostitute economist Joseph S. Lawrence, member of anti-silver American Economic Association, financial writer for New York Herald Tribune; owned by Ogden R. Reid (1882-1947) a director of Harriman National Bank, second generation Pilgrims Society member whose father was Ambassador to England.
His sons Whitelaw Reid and Ogden R. Reid became Pilgrims Society members; both members of Book and Snake Society of Yale; Whitelaw ran the publishing empire and was a member of the U.S. National Commission for the United Nations Educational, Scientific & Cultural Organization (UNESCO); Ogden was Ambassador to Israel (1959-1961), director of Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance; trustee of the (British front) Atlantic Council of the U.S.; Congressman from New York, 1963-1975, during which critical period he voted for everything the Silver Users Association wanted.
On July 14, 1965, Ogden Reid, Republican from New York, voted for the Coinage Act of 1965, terminating 90% silver coinage.
The 1914-1915 “Who’s Who in America” has some info on the anti-silver Congressman’s father, page 1946; he found it necessary to omit mention of his membership in The Pilgrims; note another Episcopalian (Crown Church of England; The Pilgrims are not a Rothschild organization, they are a Royalist organization!) He campaigned against silver money in his New York Tribune newspaper. He was a director of a beloved company, the Shredded Wheat Company. A later member, aluminum mogul Richard S. Reynolds Jr. was a director of Eskimo Pie Company – blurb image is from The Pilgrims NYC 1936.
The New York Times, October 11, 1931, page 3, reported that the United States delegate to the Pan American Union opposed that organization’s proposal for a world conference on the monetary rehabilitation of silver.
The Pan American Union, now known as the Organization of American States, represented silver producing nations in the Southern part of the Western hemisphere.
All American delegates to international conferences are subject to the orders of the Secretary of State. Henry Stimson of The Pilgrims Society actively opposed an international conference for restoration of silver money! The reason — the Society included those in control of central banks, who worked to send silver into the toilet, and to lower gold reserve requirements eventually to zero!
Stimson’s mentor was Pilgrims Society member Elihu Root, called "the most brilliant administrator in American history" who assisted Pilgrims Society member, Crown loyalist Andrew Carnegie set up the astonishingly virulent Carnegie Foundations, which, like the Rhodes Trust, the Rockefeller, Mellon, Ford and other foundations, are administered by Pilgrims Society members.
Viscount Simon, Pilgrims Society of Great Britain, was Foreign Secretary, 1931-1935 and played his role in dumping Indian silver onto world markets, causing the Great Depression; afterwards he became Chancellor of the Exchequer.
THE DEMONETIZATION OF SILVER BY ENGLAND, DUMPING INDIA’S SILVER ON THE MARKET BROUGHT ON THE WORLD DEPRESSION.
— New York Times, April 25, 1933, page 16.
The December 28, 1932 New York Times, page 25, featured “South Africa Notes Off Gold Standard,” with subtitles, “Treasury Gives Reserve Banks Right to Refuse to Redeem in Sovereigns” and “Gold Export Is Curbed” and “Restrictions Will Seek to Prevent Further Hoarding and Flight of Country’s Capital”.
Pretoria, South Africa — SOUTH AFRICA, THE GREATEST GOLD PRODUCING COUNTRY IN THE WORLD HAS VIRTUALLY ABANDONED THE GOLD STANDARD. This was the purport of an official statement issued by the Treasury tonight relieving the Reserve Bank from responsibility for redeeming notes in gold. Powers for this action were taken under emergency financial regulations passed by Parliament last year.
George Herbert Hyde Villiers
The move against gold convertibility was made by The 6th Earl of Clarendon (George Herbert Hyde Villiers), Pilgrims Society of Great Britain, member of the Privy Council to the Crown and the House of Lords who was British Governor General of South Africa, 1931-1937.
His grandfather was a three term Foreign Secretary; his father was a member of Parliament and the Privy Council to the Crown.
His grandfather was the 3rd Earl of Normanton, member of Parliament.
The British led attack against silver was followed immediately by an attack on gold, with their Pilgrim Partners Franklin Roosevelt and Henry Morgenthau Jr. screwing Americans out of gold just as soon as FDR invaded the White House with his diabolical, demonized presence.
The Pilgrims Society of London and New York, the fiat World Money Power, opposes silver and gold as money and ownership thereof by the public, even if treated only as commodities!
When the present synthetic system they imposed fails, they’ll offer as a “remedy” the taking of precious metals from We The People a second time!
Making others aware of their existence and operations is the best way to frustrate their intentions!
