Federal Reserve Exposed: Speeches of Congressman Louis T. McFadden

Few Americans today recognize the names of men like Congressman Charles Augustus Lindbergh, Sr., father of the famed aviator, who fought against the passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 and conducted one of the first investigations of 'the Banking and Money Trust in Congress; and of congressman Louis Thomas McFadden. These men spent their lives in heroic combat, as grim and as hopeless as the winter at Valley Forge, but they never admitted the possibility of defeat. And they never lost the courage to go on. But America lost, because America did not support them in their struggle, and America is the loser today.

Excerpt from the Introduction: The province of this volume is to pay homage to... Congressman Louis T. McFadden. Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr. has fortunately already left us a rich legacy of three books published some fifty years ago in which he gives a full account of his inspiring efforts in Congress. (See Bibliography. Ed.) ...

    And battle he did. Armed with the courage of his convictions and the certitude of his cause he hurled his thundering charges against those who were plundering America and drenching the world in blood with their insane greed. Congressman McFadden refused obeisance to the high priests of Mammon, the International Bankers, for whom he reserved the full force of his attacks. The enormity of his revealments against the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks will stagger the credibility of the reader. ...

    But why was there no support? We must remember that when McFadden made these speeches we were in the darkest days of the Great Depression, when the nation was prostrate, and in' the dark night of the soul of the American people. A sad and defeated nation, destroyed from within, brought to its knees, could offer no help when McFadden opened every door, named, every name, exposing every secret of the underground government.

    How could any American youth fail to be moved by the spectacle of a small town banker rising to the leadership of our Congressional Committee on Banking and Currency, and, in that capacity, refusing to be bought by those who buy and sell men like cattle? Instead, he nearly brought to a halt the vast and intricate machinations of international bankers and their sinister scheihes to attain perpetual and limitless wealth at the expense of an enslaved, drugged and brainwashed population of drone workers. For twenty years, he fought, our fight... and when he died, ... the record of that struggle was buried with him.
