Mark Twain Identified the Bankster Vampires

117 years later, Greece faces expulsion from the EU for failure to repay "odious debt" created out of thin air . Perhaps it's again time for the central bankers and their minions to be expelled instead.

(Excerpt from "Concerning the Jews")
from May 14, 2012

We have all ... read the pathetic story of the years of plenty and the years of famine in Egypt, and how Joseph made a corner in broken hearts, and the crusts of the poor, and human liberty - a corner whereby he took a nation's money all away, to the last penny [ie. austerity, deflation;] took a nation's livestock all away, to the last hoof.

[He] took a nation's land away, to the last acre; then took the nation itself, buying it for bread, man by man, woman by woman, child by child, till all were slaves; a corner which took everything, left nothing; a corner so stupendous that, by comparison with it, the most gigantic corners in subsequent history are but baby things, for it dealt in hundreds of millions of bushels, and its profits were reckonable by hundreds of millions of dollars, and it was a disaster so crushing that its effects have not wholly disappeared from Egypt to-day, more than three thousand years after the event.

Is it presumable that the eye of Egypt was upon Joseph the foreign Jew all this time? I think it likely. Was it friendly? We must doubt it. Was Joseph establishing a character for his race which would survive long in Egypt? and in time would his name come to be familiarly used to express that character - like Shylock's? It is hardly to be doubted. Let us remember that this was centuries before the crucifixion...


When I was a boy, in the back settlements of the Mississippi Valley, where a gracious and beautiful Sunday-school simplicity and unpracticality prevailed, the "Yankee" (citizen of the New England States) was hated with a splendid energy. But religion had nothing to do with it. In a trade, the Yankee was held to be about five times the match of the Westerner. His shrewdness, his insight, his judgment, his knowledge, his enterprise, and his formidable cleverness in applying these forces were frankly confessed, and most competently cursed.

In the cotton States, after the war, the simple and ignorant Negroes made the crops for the white planter on shares. The Jew came down in force, set up shop on the plantation, supplied all the Negro's wants on credit, and at the end of the season was proprietor of the Negro's share of the present crop and of part of his share of the next one. Before long, the whites detested the Jew, and it is doubtful if the negro loved him.

The Jew is being legislated out of Russia. The reason is not concealed. The movement was instituted because the Christian peasant and villager stood no chance against his commercial abilities. He was always ready to lend money on a crop, and sell vodka and other necessaries of life on credit while the crop was growing. When settlement day came he owned the crop; and next year or year after he owned the farm, like Joseph.

In the dull and ignorant England of John's time everybody got into debt to the Jew. He gathered all lucrative enterprises into his hands; he was the king of commerce; he was ready to be helpful in all profitable ways; he even financed crusades for the rescue of the Sepulcher. To wipe out his account with the nation and restore business to its natural and incompetent channels he had to be banished the realm.

For the like reasons Spain had to banish him four hundred years ago, and Austria about a couple of centuries later.

In all the ages, Christian Europe has been obliged to curtail his activities. If he entered upon a mechanical trade, the Christian had to retire from it. If he set up as a doctor, he was the best one, and he took the business. If he exploited agriculture, the other farmers had to get at something else. Since there was no way to successfully compete with him in any vocation, the law had to step in and save the Christian from the poor-house.

Trade after trade was taken away from the Jew by statute till practically none was left. He was forbidden to engage in agriculture; he was forbidden to practise law; he was forbidden to practise medicine, except among Jews; he was forbidden the handicrafts. Even the seats of learning and the schools of science had to be closed against this tremendous antagonist. Still, almost bereft of employments, he found ways to make money, even ways to get rich...

Protestants have persecuted Catholics, but they did not take their livelihoods away from them. The Catholics have persecuted the Protestants with bloody and awful bitterness, but they never closed agriculture and the handicrafts against them. Why was that? That has the candid look of genuine religious persecution, not a trade-union boycott in a religious disguise...

I am persuaded that in Russia, Austria, and Germany nine-tenths of the hostility to the Jew comes from the average Christian's inability to compete successfully with the average Jew in business - in either straight business or the questionable sort.

n Berlin, a few years ago, I read a speech which frankly urged the expulsion of the Jews from Germany; and the agitator's reason was as frank as his proposition. It was this: that eighty-five per cent of the successful lawyers of Berlin were Jews, and that about the same percentage of the great and lucrative businesses of all sorts in Germany were in the hands of the Jewish race!

(Timothy Geitner , Secretary of the Treasury, left)

Isn't it an amazing confession? It was but another way of saying that in a population of 48,000,000, of whom only 500,000 were registered as Jews, eight-five per cent of the brains and honesty of the whole was lodged in the Jews. I must insist upon the honesty - it is an essential of successful business, taken by and large. Of course it does not rule out rascals entirely, even among Christians, but it is a good working rule, nevertheless. The speaker's figures may have been inexact, but the motive of persecution stands out as clear as day.

The man claimed that in Berlin the banks, the newspapers, the theatres, the great mercantile, shipping, mining, and manufacturing interests, the big army and city contracts, the tramways, and pretty much all other properties of high value, and also the small businesses, were in the hands of the Jews. He said the Jew was pushing the Christian to the wall all along the line; that it was all a Christian could do to scrape together a living; and that the Jew must be banished, and soon - there was no other way of saving the Christian.

 Here in Vienna, last autumn, an agitator said that all these disastrous details were true of Austria-Hungary also; and in fierce language he demanded the expulsion of the Jews. When politicians come out without a blush and read the baby act in this frank way, unrebuked, it is a very good indication that they have a market back of them, and know where to fish for votes.

You note the crucial point of the mentioned agitation; the argument is that the Christian cannot compete with the Jew, and that hence his very bread is in peril. To human beings this is a much more hate-inspiring thing than is any detail connected with religion. With most people, of a necessity, bread and meat take first rank, religion second. I am convinced that the persecution of the Jew is not due in any large degree to religious prejudice.

No, the Jew is a money-getter; and in getting his money he is a very serious obstruction to less capable neighbors who are on the same quest. I think that that is the trouble. In estimating worldly values the Jew is not shallow, but deep.

With precocious wisdom he found out in the morning of time that some men worship rank, some worship heroes, some worship power, some worship God, and that over these ideals they dispute and cannot unite - but that they all worship money; so he made it the end and aim of his life to get it.

He was at it in Egypt thirty-six centuries ago; he was at it in Rome when that Christian got persecuted by mistake for him; he has been at it ever since. The cost to him has been heavy; his success has made the whole human race his enemy - but it has paid, for it has brought him envy, and that is the only thing which men will sell both soul and body to get.

Comments for "Mark Twain Identified the Bankster Vampires "

Adam said (May 15, 2012):

Mark Twain's libeling of Joseph could not be left undefended. Joseph was not a Jew. He was one of 12 sons of Jacob and only one of those sons was a Jew - proper name "Judah" who SOLD his "brother" (actually a half-brother) to some passing merchants. He actually saved Joseph's life by doing this as the other "brothers" wanted to kill him.

Of course the name "Israel" is often confused with the name "Jew" but the name"Jew" applies properly only to one tribe (family) of the ancient nation of Israel which consisted of 12 tribes (families) not just one tribe (family). Of course the confusion is furthered by the mis-naming of the state that was founded in 1948 which should properly be called "Judah" and certainly not "Israel".

Hope this puts a bit more light on this widespread ignorance.

John said (May 15, 2012):

In re "Mark Twain Identified the Bankster Vampires." Christian, Jew, et al are not the problem. The true problem is a god called money. Jesus Christ tells us, "No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money" (Matt 6:24 ESV). Now, just to clarify, money is not intrinsically evil, God does not outlaw money, and God certainly desires His creation to be fruitful and prosperous; however, when we allow money to be the center and focus of our lives, money then becomes an evil since we replace our Creator with a false idol. Mr. Twain expounds the matter very well. It is not the Jew per se; it is the love of money and the Jews undoubtedly love money (more so than other individuals I would argue). This elucidates their (the Jews) high success in everything because money is their main impetus.

Mariel said (May 15, 2012):

This is a great article (natch, Mark Twain!) but the comments are even better. They make us realize, I hope, that there
are Jews and Jews. Not all Jews are pharisees. The pictures you put up on this page, Henry, show what I suppose are
the pharisee Jews of America and two from the World Bank. It horrifies me, viscerally attacks me, to see the pictures of
these vampires in tailored clothing who are destroying our finances. But not all Jews are this way; I know some who are not.

One poster pointed out that although Joseph cornered the market in Egypt, he had a lot of "good" things going for him too.
Including not worshiping idols. That is always a sticky wicket in the Bible--idol worship. If you worship idols Hashem will
have your hide. I cannot see how the system of banking (own -it- all- system) came down, as the article stated, to influence
Egypt today---I see nothing at all in Egypt to day which has anything to do with Joseph.

Great article, great comments.

Chris said (May 15, 2012):

The underlying message to this article is that Jews are do great you can't compete on an equal footing.

The reality is the exact opposite. Jews have floated to the top by subverting the political and monetary process. They simply have control over money creation and while dropping crumbs to the goy.

Chris said (May 15, 2012):

don't think it's fair or accurate to compare Joseph of Egypt to the modern-day Jews. Firstly, God ensured Joseph would prosper as a means to give the True God glory, as separate from the Egyptian false "gods," i.e. demons. Also, Joseph had been sold into slavery, and made a meteoric rise because God made it happen that way. Also, Joseph did actually love, obey and worship the true God, in contrast with the modern-day Jews who worship Satan. The fact is that the Jews ceased being the chosen people of God when Jesus Christ was crucified.

At that moment the Old Law ended, and the New Law was instituted, the Catholic Church. Ever since then the Jews have made it their main goal to try and destroy the Catholic Church, and they created the occult society of Freemasons to help them in their diabolical aims. Mark Twain was a Freemason, which is evidently why he cannot distinguish between prosperity according to God's Justice, in contrast with prosperity due to unjust usury. Big difference!

Clifford Shack said (May 15, 2012):

If not for Joseph, Egypt would have been wiped out by famine. Would that have been a more desired result for Egyptians?

The Roman treatment of Christians was despicable. How quickly we forget how they fed Christians to hungry lions for sport.

The Jews are powerful because they are united and learned in business. They are a blessing and a curse. That is power. We bless God when He gives life but we curse Him under our breath when He takes it away. He remedy for this immaturity, and that is what it is, lies beyond the Jew and the Christian mindset. It is to be found in the East among the Buddhist and the Hindu. The remedy is non-attachment to the desires of the world. If you don't buy what the Jew is selling he has no sway over you. Stop complaining and look within your own mind-body mechanism.

Nadir said (May 15, 2012):

I would like to comment in regard to the article, “Mark Twain Identified Banker Vampires,” May 14, 2012, and to what Al Thompson (May 14, 2012) said: “Maybe a more accurate word for them would be Pharisees.”

I would like to advise Al Thompson [below] to read Benjamin H. Freedman. Here, is what Benjamin H. Freedman had to say about Pharisaism:

The eminent Rabbi Louis Finkelstein, the head of The Jewish Theological Seminary of America, often referred to as "The Vatican of Judaism", in his Foreword to his First Edition of his world-famous classic "The Pharisees, The Sociological Background of Their Faith", on page XXI states:

"...Judaism...Pharisiasm became Talmudism, Talmudism became Medieval Rabbinism, and Medieval Rabbinism became Modern Rabbinism. But throughout these changes in name...the spirit of the ancient Pharisees survives, unaltered...From Palestine to Babylonia; from Babylonia to North Africa, Italy, Spain, France and Germany; from these to Poland, Russia, and eastern Europe generally, ancient Pharisaism has wandered...demonstrates the enduring importance which attaches to Pharisaism as a religious movement..."

Al Thompson said (May 14, 2012):

After looking into this rather late in my life, my understanding of this is that it isn't that a Jew is better at business, he is better at eliminating any competition. If a Jew can manipulate the monetary system, and then enslave the people with usury, then to me it appears that Jews operate like communists. The main purpose of a communist is to eliminate competition. The terms are different depending upon the time in history, but the substance is the same; feudalism, fascism, communism, socialism, liberal, and progressive. I call them corporate socialists.

Usury is the most severe problem we have in any economy. It is an evil system that produces economic failure. So if the "Jews" were really Jews, then why is it that they use interest/usury? Why are so many "Jews" sympathetic to Nazi's and communists when 6 million of their people were murdered by Hitler? I've actually asked this to people I know who are Jewish and they tell me to shut up. The "Jewishness" isn't really much of an issue, it is the interest that is the problem. Let the Jews compete for their living just like everyone else without establishing an unfair advantage by controlling the money supply. Maybe a more accurate word for them would be Pharisees.

Their weakness is that they need the producers to support the suckers. Once the producers figure this out, and I think they are, that's when the proverbial stuff will hit the fan.
