Prominent Financial Writer: The Big Money Boys Call the Shots, The President is Just a “Figurehead” and All Politicians “Mere Pawns”

Long-time MarketWatch writer Paul Farrell explains in a new essay that the big money boys call the shots, and that one of their basic strategies for maintaining control is to use the president as a “figurehead” and politicians as “mere pawns”:

Always elect a figurehead president.

Putin skirted term limits by getting Medvedev elected president. Then Putin was appointed party leader and prime minister, the real power behind the throne. That’s one way power stays in power playing the game. Wall Street is a master at playing this game, as the single largest money donor to political campaigns. Donations assure continued control behind an illusion of democracy, where all politicians are mere pawns.

    Exactly. “We say in our platform that we believe that the right to coin and issue money is a function of government. We believe it. We believe that it is a part of sovereignty, and can no more with safety be delegated to private individuals than we could afford to delegate to private individuals the power to make penal statutes or levy taxes…Those who are opposed to this proposition tell us that the issue of paper money is a function of the bank, and that the government ought to go out of the banking business. I stand with Jefferson rather than with them, and tell them, as he did, that the issue of money is a function of government, and that the banks ought to go out of the governing business… When we have restored the money of the Constitution, all other reform will be possible, but until this is done there is no other reform that can be accomplished." – William Jennings Bryan, Cross of Gold Speech, 1896. http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Cross_of_Gold_Speech ."The depression was the calculated 'shearing' of the public by the World Money powers, triggered by the planned sudden shortage of supply of call money in the New York money market….The One World Government leaders and their ever close bankers have now acquired full control of the money and credit machinery of the U.S. via the creation of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank." – Curtis Dall (FDR's son-in-law), My Exploited Father-in-Law, 1967. pages 34-43: http://www.scribd.com/doc/7882835/My-Exploited-Father-in-Law . Dall was a graduate of Princeton, manager at Lehman Brothers, Partner at Merrill Lynch, and Vice Presidential nominee for the Constitution Party in 1960.
