"The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in iniquity and born in sin. Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money and control credit, and with the flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again. Take this great power away from the bankers and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this would be a better and happier world to live in. But if you want to continue the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money and to control credit."
- Sir Josiah Stamp, Director and President of the Bank of England during the 1920's

There are many human beings in the world today that just want to shake off all government and corporate bureaucracy and deception like a dog shakes off water after a swim. Unfortunately, it is not quite that easy, but it can be done. This opening letter’s purpose is to outline three of the major deceptions that are being kept secret from the populations of most (if not all) democratic countries of the world. These deceptions are placed here, first, to catch your attention, and second, to arouse your interest to read the rest of this book and find out the vast scope of all the deceptions that effect your life without your knowledge.
The information in this letter will be kept as concise as possible. We will however start with a story taken from http://members.shaw.ca/theultimatescam/index.htm that illustrates how the cause of our present situation got shifted into overdrive.
This is a short and simple story. It may be called a fable, but it is true in its portrayal of how our present money system evolved.
Many years ago, a certain rich man wanted to go abroad for a two-year vacation. He owned, in cash, ten thousand shekels of gold. He could not take the gold with him because of its weight and the danger of being robbed; so he went to a goldsmith to ask if he could leave his gold with him for safekeeping. The goldsmith, who had a large secure storage facility similar to a vault, wanted to be paid to keep the rich man’s gold. He asked for 10% or 1000 shekels to which the rich man agreed. The rich man “deposited” his gold with the goldsmith, obtained a “receipt” for it and then left on his trip abroad.
As soon as the rich man had left his gold and departed, the goldsmith told his helper to go and spread the word that his master had a few shekels of gold to loan to financially secure customers at 15% interest. Soon the borrowers came. One wanted 50 shekels; another wanted 100 shekels and so on. To the goldsmith’s surprise, most borrowers did not take delivery of the gold. Instead, all they wanted was the goldsmith’s receipt saying, “I owe you X number of gold shekels” which could be used to claim the gold when they wanted it. In modern terms, they had what we call a demand deposit.
As the days proceeded, the goldsmith had loaned out all of his 1000 shekels, which were drawing 15% interest. Yet, nearly all of the shekels were still in the vault. The only people who took their gold were a few of the small borrowers, the others only wanted receipts (IOU’s) showing the goldsmith held their gold and that they could have it whenever they needed it.
As time went on, the goldsmith found that the people were accepting his receipts in payment of goods and services rather than using the gold. When the occasional person did claim his gold and used it in payment of goods etc., the one who received the gold brought it back to the goldsmith for safekeeping and accepted an IOU.
This gave the goldsmith a “terrific” idea.
The goldsmith’s “terrific idea” of 300 years or so ago has grown into the international bankers’ “one world order” of today.
This letter will not be concerned with all the history between the goldsmith of years ago and today. It is enough to know that almost from that day to this the private moneylenders (banks) have implemented a plan that has made them the fiscal agents of virtually every country in the world. This plan was The Private Debt Money System. Under that system it is never possible for a country to pay off its debt. The debt will forever increase.
The following three points may be difficult and even impossible to believe at first. Our understanding of the present world situation will never be complete until we come to know them as true. The following statements are spoken about the countries of United States and Canada, but they can be taken as true for most countries in the world today.
First, The Private Debt Money System with its guaranteed ever-increasing debt eventually forced both the USA and Canada into bankruptcy. USA was forced into bankruptcy in 1933 and Canada soon after.
Second, your federal income taxes do not go toward financing the operation of your country. United States citizens pay their taxes to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Most Americans believe that the IRS is an agency of the federal government. It is not. It is an agency of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Canadian citizens pay their taxes to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). Most Canadians believe that the CRA is an agency of the federal government. It is not. It too is an agency of the IMF. All income taxes paid by all Americans and all Canadians eventually end up deposited with the World Bank. The fact that our taxes end up with the World Bank should validate for us that the first point above is true. When a corporation goes bankrupt the bank will step in and appoint a receiver to act on its behalf. All finances generated by the corporation are sent directly to the bank because the bank is now providing all the operating finances of the corporation.
If our taxes don’t finance the operation of the federal government then what does? Or a better question is, how does the IMF (or World Bank -- same thing) provide the operating funds to the corporations of UNITED STATES and CANADA?
This brings us to the third point. They do it via your birth certificate! Most of us have assumed that our birth certificate is just that – a certificate recording the information of our birth and nothing more. The following is taken from Robert Arthur Menard’s book, Bursting Bubbles of Government Deception, and lets us know just what our birth certificate represents to the government and the World Bank.
You can reach Robert at, email@example.com.
BIRTH CERTIFICATE. A formal document which certifies as to the date and place of one’s birth and a recitation of his or her parentage, as issued by an official in charge of such records. Furnishing of such is often required to prove one’s age. Black’s 6th.
Note: A Birth Certificate is a negotiable instrument, a registered security, a stock certificate evidencing, or representing, the preferred stock of the corporation and against which you are the surety; it is a pedigree chattel document establishing the existence of our straw man, a distinct artificial person with a fictitious name; it is a document of title to a straw man; it is a warehouse receipt for your body; delivery receipt; industrial bond between you (flesh-and-blood man or woman) and the industrial society and corporate US Government (artificial person).
In Canada, the original birth certificate is generally created at the PROVINCIAL level (in rare instances city level) via birth documents from the hospital (for which the hospital receives $$$ from the PROVINCE for causing the registration of the birth) and passed to the Provincial and Federal levels, and likely elsewhere. Per the definition of “birth” below, the document references both the newborn and the straw man. Certified copies of the birth certificate may be obtained at the Vital Statistics Office. Your birth certificate is one of the kinds of security instrument used by the Government to obtain loans from its creditor, under which it is bankrupt.
BIRTH. The act of being born or wholly brought into separate existence. Black’s 1st.
Note: A man or a woman is “born”, straw men are “wholly brought into separate existence.” Each event qualifies as a “birth”. The birth certificate documents a muddied mixture of the two events that allows the system to both claim that it is “your” birth certificate yet also claim to hold title to (not ownership of) the corporately coloured straw man.
From Mary Elizabeth: Croft in her book, HOW I CLOBBERED EVERY BUREAUCRATIC CASH-CONFISCATORY AGENCY KNOWN TO MAN, we get the following: (You can reach Mary at, firstname.lastname@example.org)
Registration vs. Recording
“Registration” comes from Latin “Rex, Regis” etc. meaning regal. So think about what occurs to whatever you ‘register’ – you hand legal title over to the Crown. When you register anything with the public, it releases legal title to the government corporation and leaves you with only equitable title – the right to use, not own, and for that use you will pay a ‘use’ tax, be it income, sin, sales, property, etc. as opposed to lawful taxes, excise and impost. So that it doesn’t appear that the government now owns the property which you have registered they put it in a name which so much resembles your own that you won’t suspect it, however, the NAME is owned by the government. If you choose rather to record your legal title to your property with the public, you maintain your status as Title Owner. This is one of the most important things you can ever learn for the sake of your commercial affairs.
The best example of the effects of registration is the birth certificate. A bankrupt entity – city, state/province, and country – cannot operate in commerce. So how do they manage? Since USA/CA have been bankrupt for decades, having no substance such as gold and silver to back it, the only asset it has is men and woman and our labour. We are the collateral for the interest on the loan of the World Bank. Each of us is registered, via the application for a birth certificate. The treasury issues a bond on the birth certificate and the bond is sold at a securities exchange and bought by the FRB/BoC, (Federal Reserve Bank/Bank of Canada) which then uses it as collateral to issue bank notes. The bond is held in trust for the Feds at the Depository Trust Corporation. We are the sureties on said bonds. Our labour/energy is then payable at some future date. Hence we become the ‘transmitting utility’ for the transmission of energy.
The birth certificate created a FICTION (the name of the baby in upper case letters). The state/province sells the birth certificate to the Commerce Department of the corporations of USA/CA, which in turn places a bond on the birth certificate thereby making it a negotiable instrument, and placing the fiction, called a STRAWMAN, into the warehouse of the corporation of USA/CA. Representation for the created fiction was given to the BAR (British Accredited Registry/Regency), owned and operated by the Crown, for the purpose of contracting the fiction (which most of us think is ourselves) into a third party action. Do not underestimate the power behind this trick. It is to con us into contracting with the Feds so that they can ‘legally’ confiscate our property. All these contracts have only our signature on them because corporate fictions cannot contract (only natural beings have the right to contract – and the right not to contract). Because there is no full disclosure – we are never told that we have just signed away what we believe to be our property – these contracts are fraudulent, and hence, we are still the lawful owner and the profit earned by the Feds from stealing securities (our property) belongs to us and must go into a fund for our benefit, otherwise it would be fraud. Not wanting to be charged with fraud, the Feds had to create a remedy for us…and hope we wouldn’t discover it.
If you examine your birth certificate you will find a number in red ink that begins with a letter. On the small plastic card the number will appear on the back of the card. On the larger Birth Certificate printed on bank note paper the red number may be on the front. In the USA this bank note paper comes from the American Bank Note Company, in Canada it comes from the CANADIAN BANK NOTE COMPANY LIMITED. This information can be found along the lower left-hand edge of the note. If you are holding one of these you are holding a certified copy of a bank note in your name that has a value of well over $1,000,000 (one million dollars). The number in red ink is a bond number or a bond tracking number. This bond is legally and lawfully yours. This is the most important fact the World Bank does not want you to know.
Even though the country was bankrupt the banks could not take away your rights and freedoms, so they forced the government to create an artificial CORPORATION (STRAWMAN) in your name. Then they had you sign fraudulent contracts to accept the privileges and benefits attached to this artificial CORPORATION. You only signed these contracts for SSN/SIN numbers, registrations and other licenses because you were led to believe this artificial CORPORATION was you and that you were obliged to sign. They did not tell you that by signing these contracts you were signing away your lawful rights and freedoms and giving the government total control of your life, property and labour.
Today, the one simple fact that the World Bank does not want you to find out is that all these contracts are fraudulent and that because of that fact you have always had and still, to this very moment, retain all your lawful rights and freedoms. We have been deceived into being bound by rules, statutes and “laws” that simply do not apply to human beings.
If this wasn’t such a sad story it would be laughable watching the antics our politicians go through as they pompously argue and debate in the House of Commons, or extol the welfare of the economy during their campaigning before an election.
All citizens of Canada can know that the federal political parties know the contents of this book as it was sent (minus this letter) to each party leader by this author. Each leader was asked to copy it to all their party members who sit in the House of Commons. The same was sent to each of the two parties that make up the Provincial Legislature of British Columbia. This action was done during the second week of April 2005. You will notice that Chapter Five is an open letter to our Prime Minister, Paul Martin.
Each reader is encouraged to inform as many wealthy people as they can of the above web site. One disheartening aspect of The Private Debt Money System is that as the number of wealthy increase so does the poverty of the world increase at least a hundred fold. In our struggle to change the present system we all must become aware of the part we have played in it and how that has contributed to the suffering we see around us.
It is this author’s fervent hope that in this struggle we learn from the people who came before us and showed us how to win without aggression or violence of any kind. A few of these great ones are: Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and many more. There have been many that have aided this present struggle and have ended up in prison because of their efforts. We owe them many thanks. One day soon their efforts will be widely recognized. There may be many more suffer the same conditions before we win, but win we will. By “we” I mean each and every human being alive on this earth. Consider no human being your foe. Our foe is a mistaken thought that resulted in a money system that causes suffering to many. It is this thought that must be changed. This thought was the original “terrific idea” that arose one day, so many years ago, in the goldsmith’s mind. We need to teach the world that this “terrific idea” was really one of the worst ideas ever to take root in one mind and spread in so many others. Our struggle is to change just one thought. Demonstrate the fallacy of the premise that any thought system stands on and the whole system must fall.
Speaking of changing our thinking, it is important that we change our thinking of what banks actually are and what they actually do. They are debt farmers and they farm debt amongst human beings, CORPORATIONS and GOVERNMENTS. Do not support their crop. It is a virus -- one that enslaves us.
We, in North America, must start realizing that what we see in our own yard, does not reflect what is happening on a global level. When we look around and see that the number of millionaires in North America in growing we get the false perception that our economic system is working in a positive nature. We need to become aware that as the finite number of dollars accumulate with a few, the mass majority ends up with less. Hopefully, Chapter One will assist in your understanding that The Private Debt Money System guarantees unemployment, poverty, hunger and even death.
