Bankers Think Americans are Rubes

(Donald Trump played a carnival barker in the reality show, "American Democracy.")

"Rube"  n. a country bumpkin

"The plain people of this country are inveterate and incurable hero worshippers," Col. House explained. "They easily can be manipulated by a man with a slogan that expresses their 'undefined aspirations.'"

"Make America Great Again" perhaps?

We revisit the "Col. E.M. House Report", (1919), a chilling 10-page document that oozes contempt for Americans and reveals the bankers' "entire system of thought control" employed 100 years ago. These goals and methods have not changed. If ever we needed proof that democracy is a charade, this is it.

Proof that "World Government" is Banker Tyranny

from June 9, 2009 & April 18, 2017

In 1919, the Rothschild-dominated Bank of England planned to trick the United States into becoming a "British" colony again by joining the League of Nations. The League of the Nations, like the "British Empire", was the bankers' fiefdom, and this stratagem would merely formalize a colonial status which already existed.

The bankers took over the U.S. during the Teddy Roosevelt Administration (1901-1909) when Rothschild front J.P. Morgan alone controlled 25% of American business.

The "Col. E.M. House Report", is a chilling 10-page "progress report" dated June 10,1919 which proves the League of Nations was an aborted attempt at world government and a facade for banker tyranny. The Report reveals the reality and the tactics behind the United Nations and globalization.

House writes: "We have wrapped this plan in the peace treaty so that the world must accept from us the League or a continuance of the war. The League is in substance the Empire with America admitted on the same basis as our other colonies."

The report oozes contempt for Americans and reveals the deceitful methods international finance employed almost 100 years ago to bring about world government. These goals and methods have not changed. If ever we needed proof of an elite conspiracy to subvert and enslave us, this is it.



The author is Col. Edward Mandell House (1858-1938), the Rothschild agent who secretly directed U.S. affairs during the Woodrow Wilson administration. Col. House was known as Wilson's friend and "alter ego." (He had not served in the military and the term "Colonel" was merely honorary.) The report is addressed to British Prime Minister David Lloyd George, whose career was made as a lawyer for the World Zionist Organization.

Rep. Jacob Thorkelson (1876-1945) introduced The House Report to Congress in Oct.1939 and published it in the Congressional Record (Oct. 13 1939, pp.598-604). Attempts to delete it were thwarted. The complete text is available on line.

The report details Col. House's progress in preparing "for the peaceful return of the American colonies to the dominion of the Crown."

"Crown" refers to the owners of the Bank of England. Their identities are an official secret. According to E.C. Knuth, the "international financial oligarchy uses the allegoric 'Crown' as its symbol of power and has its headquarter in the ancient city of London...the giant Bank of England, a privately owned institution... is not subject to regulation by the British parliament and is in effect a sovereign world power." (The Empire of the City, p. 59)

Col. House continues: The "peaceful return of the American colonies" can only be brought about with "the consent of the dominant group of the controlling clans."

Col. House relates how these classes are being taught to accept "British" leadership. He details how the universities and press are staffed by "British-born" or Canadians.

"Through the Red Cross, the Scout movement, the YMCA, the church, and other humane, religious, and quasi religious organizations, we have created an atmosphere of international effort which strengthens the idea of unity of the English speaking world."

The Overseas Clubs, service clubs, and war charities "enable us to pervade all sections and classes of the country."

We "hold all American newspapers as isolated from the non-American world as if they had been in another planet instead of another hemisphere. The realization of this by the Associated Press and the other universal news gatherers, except Hearst, was most helpful in bringing only our point of view to the papers they served."

He boasts that the United States "while still maintaining an outward show of independence" is identical with other colonies in its relationship to the Crown. "Has not President Wilson cancelled the big Navy program and dutifully conceded to us the command of the seas?"

He boasts that "the Anglo American alliance" has become "the unchallenged financiers of the world."

He congratulates "our fiscal agents Messrs Pierpont Morgan & Company" for "putting this country into the war." They exert "widespread influence on newspaper policy" through advertising and lent $200,000,000 to Japan to build a fleet to compete with America (making the U.S still more dependent on England.)

Col. House boasts that the "Crown" used money lent by the U.S. government for war purposes to buy up oil fields in California, Mexico and Latin America.

"The war has made us custodians of the greater part of the world's raw materials... [We] now largely control the oil fields of the world and thereby the world's transportation and industry."


The pressing issue now is to "transfer its dangerous sovereignty from this colony to the custody of the Crown. We must, in short, now bring America within the Empire."

The first step was Wilson's plan for the League of Nations "which we prepared for him."

"The plain people of this country are inveterate and incurable hero worshippers," Col. House explains. They easily can be manipulated by a man with a slogan that expresses their "undefined aspirations."

Afterwards, they will trust the sloganeer no matter what he does. Wilson has gained this trust and this accounts for "his exceptional usefulness to us."

"Any abrupt change might startle the ignorant American masses and rouse them to action against it. And us. Our best policy therefore would be to appoint President Wilson the first president of the League... he will be able to satisfy [Americans] that far from surrendering their independence to the League, they are actually extending their sovereignty by it..."

Foreshadowing The Patriot Act, Col. House says Woodrow Wilson "alone can father an anti-Bolshevik act which judicially interpreted will enable appropriate punitive measures to be applied to any American who may be unwise enough to assert that America must once again declare her independence."

Col. House goes into great detail about how Wilson must be massaged and manipulated. Many people think someone else wrote this Report but only Edward Mandell House knew Wilson this well.

For example he says Wilson "is easily slighted and remarkably vindictive." The new British ambassador should be a "Wilson worshipper" and "a gentleman-in-waiting to the President." He lists the gifts Wilson already has been given.


Col. House suggests staging the first session of the League of Nations in Washington.

"This will convince these simple people that they are the League and its power resides in them."

He recommends a "series of spectacles by which the mob may be diverted from any attempt to think too much of matters beyond their province."

"While awaiting these diversions for the vulgar, we are incessantly instructing them in the wonders of the league. Its praises are thundered by our press, decreed by our college presidents, and professed by our professors. Our authors, writers and lecturers are analysing its selected virtues... we have enlisted 8000 propagandists for the League. We have organized international and national synods, committees, conferences, convocations, conventions, herald the birth of the League as the dawn of universal peace."

"Agriculturalists, bankers, brokers, accountants, chemists, and all other functional groups capable of exerting organized professional, business, financial or social pressure are meeting to endorse the League in the name of peace, progress and prosperity...Our film concerns are preparing an epoch-making picture..."

"In short, our entire system of thought control is working ceaselessly, tirelessly, ruthlessly, to ensure the adoption of the League. And it will be adopted, for business wants peace, the righteous cannot resist a covenant, and the politicians, after shadow boxing for patronage purposes, will yield valiantly lest the fate of the wanton and wilful pursue them."


Thanks to the valiant opposition of Republican Senators, the United States rejected the Peace Treaty and with it the League of Nations Nov. 19,1919. The plot was temporarily foiled.

But the secretive bankers' covert campaign to impose world tyranny has not abated. They financed Hitler and engineered World War Two. The League of Nations was resurrected as the United Nations in 1945 and the "Cold War" initiated. Many believe we are in the early stages of "World War Three."

All segments of society continue to be propagandized with the virtues of the UN. National institutions are subverted. The press and education continue to be controlled. Politicians are figureheads.

Some of the tactics have changed. The American empire has replaced the British Empire as their instrument of world hegemony. But Americans should not think they are serving their own interests. They are building a 'new world order' and its master is "the Crown." In Col. House's words, Americans will be colonists who have to "petition at the foot of the throne."

The references to control of oilfields suggest that oil is first and foremost an instrument of world domination. The final stage of world tyranny involves gaining complete control of Middle Eastern oil. This portends an invasion of Iran.

The threat can no longer be characterized as strictly "Jewish." Through Freemasonry, the Rothschilds have received a degree of collaboration from the world's financial, cultural and political elites as to render this point moot.

Lemming-like, Western elites have embraced a death-wish for civilization.

Comments for "Bankers Think Americans are Rubes "

If "Adversity makes men" (Victor Hugo) then what does lack of adversity make? Getting a university degree in a profession like medicine is difficult.

At the beginning of my engineering program a professor spoke to the class and explained that if you have problems at home or other personal issues, you won't get through this program and you should change degree goals.

This is why I think a lot of professionals cannot fully digest what has been going on. They have grown up in stress-free environments and never really experienced being treated badly - never met the devil. They are disciplined, hard-working, and intelligent, but they have not experienced the adversity required to truly grow up.

Other than lots of hard work, they haven't really experienced the adversity required to learn to recognize the devil.

Children believe the world runs on love, adults that have grown up through adversity, know it runs on money. Western life has been too easy and many people remain children all their lives.

A good one Henry. I had done some research on col. house,too. He was quite a control agent. Wilson said in 1920: ‘we have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled & dominated governments in the civilized world.

No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction & the vote of the majority, but by the opinion & duress of small groups of dominate men.’ Even general George Cornwallis said in 1781 that all religion would be permeated with Judaism and the British empire will be as divine.

David said (December 6, 2021):

In your latest article, you suggested we “Let the bankers move to Israel […]”; but I was hoping for more like, “Let the bankers and their minions face criminal prosecution […]”.

Sounds familiar right now Henry.

Robert K said (April 17, 2017):

The human population is treated by its controllers with Pavlovian methods of conditioning primarily through the employment system, which exacts obedience by means of otherwise withheld rewards. If there ever was a justification for such a system (with which any truly Christian society would have found grievous fault), where is it in a time when the number of industrial robots in the world is practically doubling annually and they are spewing out an embarrassment of production? Is hoping to get a "job", when the "working class" is rapidly becoming terminally redundant, the best scenario the human mind can come up in the context of these revolutionary economic developments? Can we really be so dense?

Tony B said (April 17, 2017):

Gertrude Coogan, in her classic, "Money Creators," outlined, mostly from historical documents, how shortly after the U.S. Constitution was ratified by enough states, Alexander Hamilton (birth name Levine), unlawfully but with high mason G. Washington's blessing, established the criminal Bank of England (mis-called "Bank of North America") in the new nation with the very same stockholders plus a few new financiers from the colonies.
Although the colonies had gained autonomy to a point where the B of E forced parliament to outlaw the colonies' key to prosperity, honest home-government scrip money, causing the war for independence, the new nation, thanks to Hamilton/Levine was never really free of arrogant British control. Today it is still Britain which owns more property and business in the U.S. than any other "foreign" nation. It was Britain that conned the U.S. to fight two world wars to save their decrepit economy from German commerce as Britain simply could not compete, and it is the City of London cabal that has been using the U.S. since WW2 as its world knee-capper.
The rest of the world is correct in calling the English speaking governments (not the ordinary people) "The Great Satan."

AZ said (April 17, 2017):

Since the beginning of the eighties I have been researching the shadowy side of world politics. From different, also spiritual, angles I learned to see that the quest for world domination runs through most of human history. In many of your articles you have shown that it is a satanic agenda that's being rolled out for humanity, which is the driving force behind all political and geopolitical events.

When I for the first time learned about the structure of the UN and the Security Council, to me it was quite obvious this could only lead to an One World Government. The fact alone that this Security Council is made up out of five permanent members, who are all nuclear powers and have a veto right, is a blueprint for a dictatorial controlled world.

Concerning the independency of the US I’ve wondered a long time if they ever have been independent. This world is controlled by three city empires, such as the Vatican, the London City and Washington DC. Obviously they’re all interconnected, with the London City at the centre of it. To me these three city empires represent in their above mentioned order the satanic triad of sex, money and power. They’re agenda is to make Jerusalem the fourth city empire in which the other three will merge together.
