In a famous article-turned-video entitled "All Wars Are Bankers' Wars," available for viewing at Brighteon.com, Rivero explains how the concept of fighting to spread "democracy" and "freedom" is a myth perpetuated by the military-industrial complex to fool the masses into believing that war is peace.
"All of these wars and assassinations that we are told are crazed, lone-nut assassins, or weapons of mass destruction, or bringing democracy – all of them track back to the private central bankers as the initiating event," Rivero says. "And the more you study this, the more you will realize: all wars are wars for the bankers, for the private central bankers."
Why do private central bankers love war? Because it's the means by which they supplant the treasuries of nation-states with debt-based monetary systems, effectively turning the people of these nation-states into perpetual debtors while simultaneously enriching those who control the private central banks. War transforms nation-states into slave plantations, in other words, that are totally controlled by private central bankers.
"I know a lot of people are going to have difficulty comprehending this, just how many of these wars we have fought as a nation, were fought for no other purpose than to force private central banks onto nations that did not want them."
Prior to 1913, the United States was still a free country, where citizens bought and sold using treasury notes, which were backed by gold and borrowed from nobody. After 1913, however, the private Federal Reserve seized control and replaced our nation's monetary system with privately-owned Federal Reserve Notes, which are borrowed from the private Federal Reserve at interest.
This means that every time you spend "money," you're actually transacting a debt-based instrument that puts America into increasingly more debt to the private Federal Reserve. It's precisely the type of illicit banking scheme that our Founding Fathers fought to escape as they fled from England, but that eventually weaseled its way into the "Land of the Free."
"The United States fought the American Revolution primarily over King George III's Currency act, which forced the colonists to conduct their business only using printed bank notes borrowed from the Bank of England at interest," writes Rivero.
Following the revolution, the new United States adopted an entirely new economic system that involved the government issuing its own value-based money in the form of treasury dollars. This prevented private banks like the Bank of England from "siphoning off the wealth of the people through interest-bearing bank notes," as Rivero explains.
But repeated wars changed all of that, eventually leading to the creation of the private Federal Reserve bank in 1913. This private banking money scheme, after several previous iterations, was really just the Bank of England reinvented – and it's been with us ever since that time, perpetually draining the country dry while massively expanding the nation's debt with no end in sight.
"Financed at virtually no interest by the Rothschild controlled Bank of England, Britain then provoked the War of 1812 to recolonize the United States and force them back into the slavery of the Bank of England, or to plunge the United States into so much debt they would be forced to accept a new private central bank," writes Rivero.
"And the plan worked. Even though the War of 1812 was won by the United States, Congress was forced to grant a new charter for yet another private bank issuing the public currency as loans at interest, the Second Bank of the United States.
