The Federal Reserve: Who Really Owns It?

“I have never had but one opinion concerning BANKING. They [banks] are like party spirit, the delusion of the many for the interest of a few.” – John Adams in letter to John Taylor of Caroline; Quincy, Massachusetts, March 12, 1819 as cited in “The Life and Works of John Adams”, 10 volumes, (Charles Francis Adams, Editor); Boston, 1850-1856, X, Page 375
To understand who actually owns the Federal Reserve, one must realize that it is composed of twelve (12) regional Federal Reserve banks, with a Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) that meets in Washington, D.C. with the head of the Federal Reserve System called the “Chairman of the Federal Reserve”. However, the real power was and remains centered among the “Eastern Establishment” – that is, the Federal Reserve Banks of New York and Boston. The other 10 regional banks were created primarily for political reasons: to give the appearance that power was being shared among all regions of the United States.
A second difficulty in determining who owns the Federal Reserve banks, which most people now realize are PRIVATE banks, lies in the fact that true ownership is often “hidden” through ownership by numerous companies and through trusts. As anyone with even a moderate knowledge of commercial law knows, one of the best methods for protecting and hiding assets is to place them into a TRUST. To make such assets literally “untouchable” by any other private or government entity, one can create “layers” of trusts – that is, Trust A is owned by Trust B, which is owned by Trust C, which is owned by Trust D. Therefore, if John Doe has given legal title to his car to Trust A, then in order to seize his car, the bank will need to identify and locate to the trustee(s) of Trust A, then the trustee(s) of Trust B, then trustee(s) of Trust C and son on – and because the trustee(s) of any trust (a type of private contract) may be kept secret, “good luck” to any bank attempting to do that! Which is why very wealthy people LOVE trusts.
The ownership of the Federal Reserve banks are presented here in the form of five (5) CHARTS which (in my opinion) present a clearer view of the who owns what and who is connected to whom. One peculiar corporation I noticed was the “Belgium Relief Commission” which is presented in Chart #2, which outlines the J. Henry Schroder Banking Company and its affiliates, that assisted Germany in World War 1; financed Hitler in the early 1930’s; financed the presidential campaign of Herbert Hoover; included such men as Allen Dulles (former CIA director), John Foster Dulles (former U.S. Secretary of State), Casper Weinberger of Bechtel Corporation (Secretary of Defense under President Reagan), George Schultz of Bechtel Corp. (Secretary of State under Reagan), Baron Kurt von Schroder of the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) and Gordon Richardson (of Schroder Banking, Lloyds Bank, and former governor of the Bank of England, aka, the “God Of Banking”). Is it mere coincidence that the European Union (EU) is headquartered in Brussels, Belgium?

Unfortunately, the CHARTS did NOT format properly when pasted to this page, so I uploaded them into the WordPress.com Library, so it should open immediately.
