In reply to comment: What is considered a credible (see in situ)

Well

Books written in 2010 definitely don't qualify to be a credible source of a person who has been dead for over 200 years. And that's what you tried to give me for a source, kind of arrogantly I might add. Now you come and tell me "if you do some investigative research" like you haven't read my comments where I have repeatedly said myself and others on this site have researched this quote for authenticity and came up empty. Did you not see the thread link I posted? I also stated I had researched this quote before this video in my original comment:
"The Ben Franklin quote just a minute into the video is a quote I've heard before and researched for the source and cannot find one."

See how I said I had heard it before? Then I said I researched for a source? Do you have a reading comprehension problem?

What do I need for credible resource? Something from the time period that confirms the person said it or wrote it.

And you seem to be confused about Thomas Jefferson as well, the den of vipers quote is from Andrew Jackson and there is plenty of evidence to the source of that quote. But if you are talking about this quote of Jefferson that people often repeat:
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

You can easily find that is a fake, and it is one of the quotes often used in documentaries that I was referring to actually.
