George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, & Andrew Jackson Knew The Enemy

To defeat the enemy, one must know the enemy.

Despite shortcomings, all three presidents identified the core enemy of liberty, and took them out;


  • The counterfeiters for the British were known as "shovers," presumably for the ability to "shove" the fake currency into circulation. Two of the most well-known shovers for the British during the Revolutionary War were David Farnsworth and John Blair. They were caught with 10,000 dollars in counterfeits when arrested. George Washington took a personal interest in their case and called for them to be tortured to discover further information. They were eventually hung for their crimes. - Wikipedia

    "There are now under sentance of death, in the provost, a Farnsworth and Blair, convicted of being spies from the enemy, and of publishing counterfeit Continental currency." - George Washington

  • "From a passage in the letter of the President, I observe an idea of establishing a branch bank of the United States in New Orleans. This institution is one of the most deadly hostility existing, against the principles and form of our Constitution. An institution like this, penetrating by its branches every part of the Union, acting by command and in phalanx, may, in a critical moment, upset the government. Now, while we are strong, it is the greatest duty we owe to the safety of our Constitution, to bring this powerful enemy to a perfect subordination under its authorities." - Thomas Jefferson

  • As President, Jackson worked to rescind the bank's federal charter. In Jackson's veto message, the bank needed to be abolished because:
    • It concentrated the nation's financial strength in a single institution.

    • It exposed the government to control by foreign interests.

    • It served mainly to make the rich richer.

    • It exercised too much control over members of Congress.

    • It favored northeastern states over southern and western states.

    • Banks are controlled by a few select families.

    Following Jefferson, Jackson supported an "agricultural republic" and felt the Bank improved the fortunes of an "elite circle" of commercial and industrial entrepreneurs at the expense of farmers and laborers. After a titanic struggle, Jackson succeeded in destroying the Bank by vetoing its 1832 re-charter by Congress and by withdrawing U.S. funds in 1833 - Wikipedia

    "More than eight millions of the stock of this bank are held by foreigners. By this act the American Republic proposes virtually to make them a present of some millions of dollars. For these gratuities to foreigners, and to some of our own opulent citizens the act secures no equivalent whatever. Every monopoly and all exclusive privileges are granted at the expense of the public, which ought to receive a fair equivalent. The many million which this act proposes to bestow on the stockholders of the existing bank must come directly or indirectly out of the earnings of the American people." - Andrew Jackson

Who is the greatest counterfeiter of our time? The Federal Reserve banking system. The Fed counterfeits through both fiat currency and fractional reserve banking.

"It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle."

- Sun Tzu

When people look into the face of the enemy

They turn their heads away in fear or disinterest. It's strange. Everyone is running around wondering who or what the enemy is, but when you serve it up to them on a silver platter they ignore you. It's like it's too simple for them to believe - the mind repeals it.

However, counterfeiting is the core evil used by the Fed and other central bankers to gain so much control over everything. Without fiat currency and fractional reserves, they would be mere businessmen, different from no other businessmen.

Don't avoid learning what the true enemy of liberty is!

Or we will never win the war.

From even before our Constitution was written declaring only gold and silver would be legal tender, we were under attack from counterfeiters, and we have been ever since.

It is now counterfeiters that have taken over our country, controlling our government, our media, and even our corporations, with the money from their counterfeiting operation.

As was recently revealed with the partial audit of the Fed, even companies like McDonalds and Harley Davidson exist at the mercy of the Federal Reserve bank.

Thank You!


important information--

thank you--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

After reading about these presidents Ron Paul amazes me more.

Regarding the consistent defense of liberty, Ron Paul is a league above Washington, Jefferson, and Jackson.

He does have the benefit of history and their foundation, but still, it's amazing. As Ron Paul has proven in Congress, I have no doubt Ron Paul would be the best president ever.

As always, Dr. Paul would diligently follow the Constitution, like no other president has.

Not an insider

Ron Paul, because of his stance on Legal Tender laws, is not one of the insiders, unless he were to flip flop on that single issue once he sits on the Presidential throne.

Washington tortured those who dared to compete in the work of counterfeiting?

Jefferson, among the list, was more comparable to Ron Paul, it seems to me.

Jackson was definitely on the Nationalist Side of things, which would mean, definitively, an enforced money monopoly at the Nation Level, he killed any Bank that would compete with his Bank, and he was ready to crush any organized effort to secede from The Union, or in other words: There will be no slaves running away in this Nation State.

A Nation State, by definition, or in the defining of it being what it is, will enforce a Single Money Monopoly, that is how that works.

A working Republic may, theoretically, be funded by Gold and Silver flowing from Sovereign State Government Banks, or Accounts, all Legal, into the Federal Account, or Bank, and all that business is disconnected from The People.

How the Sovereign State Governments connect to The People in legalized taxation methods, is competitive, by design, to see which method works best, according to The People, who can run away from one State that grows more Despotic, if it does resort to Despotic Ways, without a Nation State Apparatus, kidnapping those runaway slaves, and returning them to their slave masters.
