Bankers, Bradburys, Carnage And Slaughter On The Western Front
Bankers, Bradburys, Carnage And Slaughter On The Western Front
A little known historical fact that will collapse even further the reputation of the City of London.
ARTICLE | NOVEMBER 19, 2012 - 8:27AM | BY JUSTIN WALKER
As I start to write this article, today is Remembrance Sunday and I’m
listening live to the sombre but magnificent strains of Elgar’s Nimrod
as the parade at The Cenotaph assembles for the nation’s annual act of
remembrance to the fallen. Like almost everyone else, I’m always humbled
and moved by the veterans’ march-pass to pay their respects to fallen
friends and comrades – but this year I will find it particularly
poignant in the light of my recent research concerning a little known
fact about the outbreak of the First World War. Let me explain.
Yesterday, I watched by sheer chance the spectacle of the Lord Mayor’s
Show on television. This year’s parade for the inauguration of the 685th
Lord Mayor of London, Alderman Roger Gifford, was no different from any
other. As ever it was a combination of centuries old, corporate
traditions, with floats and vintage vehicles representing the various
Worshipful Companies, combined with local units from the armed forces
along with enthusiastic and diverse community groups of children and
young people. It was pageantry and modern day life parading together
side by side to show off all that is best about our capital city.

banker by trade, smiling and clearly enjoying himself hugely as he
doffed his large black tricorne hat to the passing parade. All around
him on the VIP stand were his family, friends, business acquaintances
and representatives from the City of London - people who just seemed
relaxed, normal and happy.
Looking at this joyous and colourful scene on the streets of London, I
was reminded of the fictional character Richard Hannay in John Buchan’s
pre-First World War famous spy novel The Thirty-nine Steps. The final
scene sees the hero Hannay confronting The Black Stone, the network of
ingenious German spies who had morphed into the higher echelons of
British society and had discovered, by the use of magnificent disguise
and deception, the war-time dispositions of the Royal Navy. Having
tracked them down to their secret lair on the Kentish coastline, Hannay
is confronted by a scene of complete domestic normality. There is
nothing about the Germans or the villa that could suggest anything other
than a typical British upper middle class household at ease with itself
enjoying a seaside holiday. But just one sudden flicker of recognition
restored Hannay’s confidence that he had discovered The Black Stone.
Well, such a flicker of recognition also restored my confidence. As soon
as I saw the giant wicker effigies of Gog and Magog on the parade, the
mythical ‘protectors’ of the City of London, my confusion disappeared.
The façade of decency and respectability was gone in an instant - the
truth of what we were really looking at had once again been restored.

now understand the hidden machinations of global finance and who are
aware of the secretive network of criminals and traitors who seek world
government on their terms, this annual spectacle of corporate
celebration and respectability by people who are not household names
clearly masks an evil that must now be exposed quickly and effectively.
With the exception of a few thousand very powerful people, the entire
world’s population, all seven billion of us, are trapped ... trapped
into a criminal debt creating banking ‘system’ that has taken hundreds
of years to perfect and to come to fruition. This ‘system’ results in
enslavement and servitude. It creates dreadful unhappiness amongst
ordinary decent people and causes wars, debt, starvation, pollution and
environmental destruction. It feeds on greed, fear and division. It
forces people onto the corporate treadmills of mass mindless production
and mass mindless consumption. It uses lies, deception, intimidation and
entrapment at all times. It is a system that is so clever and so
cunning that most of the world is completely oblivious to its existence.
It is a system that allows a few winners at the expense of a huge
number of losers. It is a system that considers itself to be unbeatable
and indestructible and is now so arrogant that it believes it can
control everything and everyone on its terms. It is a system where
psychopaths and sociopaths can flourish. And without question the centre
of this system, the heart of this global corporate beast is the
innocent sounding Square Mile known as the City of London.
Put very simply, the banking dynasties, such as the House of Rothschild,
control the political processes around the world to such an extent that
their network of private central banks have the right to create money
completely out of thin air and then charge interest on that
‘nothingness’. The polite term is ‘Fractional Reserve Lending’ but in
reality it is just simple fraud. The result is that the whole world is
currently drowning in a sea of fraudulent debt.
The USA now has a National Debt of over 16 trillion dollars, whilst the
UK owes its creditors over one trillion pounds. The planned contagion of
spiralling and unlawful debt is now sweeping over Europe with a renewed
vigour. Greece and Spain are being torn apart by appalling austerity
measures to the point that civil war or military intervention are now
being openly talked about on the streets. Italy is giving all the signs
that its economy is now entering into very stormy waters indeed.
Ireland, Portugal, France and Belgium are already in a mess and are
unlikely to see their debts become more manageable. Tens of millions of
people have experienced a major downturn in their quality of life, along
with their prospects for a more secure and better future, as unlawful
austerity measures brought in by corrupt politicians begin to bite. Even
the stronger economies of Germany, The Netherlands and Luxembourg have
now been downgraded by Moody’s, the Rothschild controlled credit rating
A Simple Solution To End This Madness – The Greenback:
What is happening to all of us is criminal. However, there is a very
simple solution that the banking dynasties do not want you to know
At the height of the American Civil War, the US Treasury warned
President Lincoln that further funding would be needed if the Federal
North was to have the resources needed to defeat the Confederate South.
The President initially went to the Rothschilds and the private banks
who wanted between 24 and 36 per cent interest. Lincoln knew that if he
agreed to take loans from the bankers that he would be putting his
country into a debt noose that would strangle the economic prosperity
out of his country and which would be almost impossible to pay off.
On the advice of a businessman with proven integrity, Colonel Dick
Taylor from Illinois, Abraham Lincoln made the decision to print
debt-free and interest-free paper money based on nothing more than the
honour of the American Government. Called ‘Greenbacks’ because they were
coloured green on one side only, the US Treasury issued 450 million
dollars worth of these notes and they were immediately accepted as legal
tender by a willing and grateful nation. The war was eventually won and
this very popular new paper currency seemed set to continue. In the
words of Lincoln himself:
The government should create issue and circulate all the currency and
credit needed to satisfy the spending power of the government and the
buying power of consumers..... The privilege of creating and issuing
money is not only the supreme prerogative of Government, but it is the
Government's greatest creative opportunity. By the adoption of these
principles, the long-felt want for a uniform medium will be satisfied.
The taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest, discounts and
exchanges. The financing of all public enterprises, the maintenance of
stable government and ordered progress, and the conduct of the Treasury
will become matters of practical administration. The people can and will
be furnished with a currency as safe as their own government. Money
will cease to be the master and become the servant of humanity.
Democracy will rise superior to the money power.
Senate document 23, Page 91. 1865
their banking empire was swift and brutal as this extract from The Times
of London in 1865 shows:
If that mischievous financial policy, which had its origin in the North
American Republic, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that
Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off
debts and be without a debt. It will have all the money necessary to
carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedence in
the history of the civilised governments of the world. The brains and
the wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government
must be destroyed, or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.
On Good Friday, April 14th 1865, a lone gunman ended the presidency of
Abraham Lincoln. Sadly, his Greenback legacy died with him as the
private bankers managed to ‘persuade’ Congress to revoke this successful
initiative in favour of the debt creating National Banking Act which
eventually led to the formation of the privately run Federal Reserve in
1913. Since then, America’s unlawful debt has risen to over 16 trillion dollars.

of me and the financial institutions in the rear.
Of the two, the one in the rear is my greatest foe."
There is nothing, absolutely nothing, to stop any sovereign government
from issuing through its treasury its own interest-free money based on
nothing more than the wealth and integrity of the nation. This is the
big secret that the City of London would rather keep to itself. If this
simple fact were to become mainstream then people everywhere would
simply walk away and the entire banking system would completely
And now we come to a very little known historical episode that I alluded
to at the beginning that takes this concept of the debt-free
‘Greenback’ from America to Britain ... and in so doing exposes the
truly appalling values that are prevalent even today within the City of
The Great War And The Debt-free Bradbury Treasury Note:
Three weeks ago, as part of my ongoing research into the banking elite, I
came across a fascinating book entitled The Financiers and the Nation
by the Rt. Hon. Thomas Johnston, P.C., ex-Lord Privy Seal. It was
written in 1934 and republished in 1994 by Ossian Publishers Ltd.
The text of this quite remarkable and rare book is available here.
In Chapter 6, entitled ‘Usury on the Great War’, I’ve selected the
following paragraphs which I believe are both shocking and
WHEN the whistle blew for the start of the Great War in August 1914 the
Bank of England possessed only nine millions sterling of a gold reserve,
and, as the Bank of England was the Bankers' Bank, this sum constituted
the effective reserve of all the other Banking Institutions in Great
The bank managers at the outbreak of War were seriously afraid that the
depositing public, in a panic, would demand the return of their money.
And, inasmuch as the deposits and savings left in the hands of the
bankers by the depositing public had very largely been sunk by the
bankers in enterprises which, at the best, could not repay the borrowed
capital quickly, and which in several and large-scale instances were
likely to be submerged altogether in the stress of war and in the
collapse of great areas of international trade, it followed that if
there were a widespread panicky run upon the banks, the banks would be
unable to pay and the whole credit system would collapse, to the ruin of
millions of people.
Private enterprise banking thus being on the verge of collapse, the
Government (Mr. Lloyd George at the time was Chancellor of the
Exchequer) hurriedly declared a moratorium, i.e. it authorized the banks
not to pay out (which in any event the banks could not do), and it
extended the August Bank Holiday for another three days. During these
three or four days when the banks and stock exchanges were closed, the
bankers held anxious negotiation with the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
And one of them has placed upon record the fact that 'he (Mr. George)
did everything that we asked him to do.' When the banks reopened, the
public discovered that, instead of getting their money back in gold,
they were paid in a new legal tender of Treasury notes (the £1 notes in
black and the 10s. notes in red colours). This new currency had been
issued by the State, was backed by the credit of the State, and was
issued to the banks to prevent the banks from utter collapse. The public
cheerfully accepted the new notes; and nobody talked about inflation.
To return, however, to the early war period, no sooner had Mr. Lloyd
George got the bankers out of their difficulties in the autumn of 1914
by the issue of the Treasury money, than they were round again at the
Treasury door explaining forcibly that the State must, upon no account,
issue any more money on this interest free basis; if the war was to be
run, it must be run with borrowed money, money upon which interest must
be paid, and they were the gentlemen who would see to the proper
financing of a good, juicy War Loan at 31/2 per cent, interest, and to
that last proposition the Treasury yielded. The War was not to be fought
with interest-free money, and/or/with conscription of wealth; though it
was to be fought with conscription of life. Many small businesses were
to be closed and their proprietors sent overseas as redundant, and
without any compensation for their losses, while Finance, as we shall
see, was to be heavily and progressively remunerated.

exposed for all to see. Whilst hundreds of thousands of British soldiers
were dying on the killing fields of Flanders and elsewhere doing what
they saw as their patriotic duty, British bankers, safely out of danger
and not sharing the appalling conditions on the Western Front, were only
interested in one thing – how to make obscene profits from Britain’s
desperate efforts to win the war. To say that the private bankers and
the City of London have the morals of sewer rats is to be extremely
unkind to our little rodent friends. But this is the clincher. As a
direct result of the greed and treason of the British private bankers in
preventing the continuance of the Bradbury Treasury Notes, Britain’s
National Debt went up from £650 million in 1914 to a staggering £7,500
million in 1919.
And this is where it all gets particularly interesting. The following is
an extract from the official and current HM Treasury’s Debt Management
Office website ... and it appears to be completely at odds with the
account given by the Rt. Hon. Thomas Johnston.
The threat of World War One pushed British banks into crisis;
exacerbated further as half the world's trade was financed by British
banks and as a consequence international payments dried up. In response
to this crisis, John Maynard Keynes (the renowned economist), persuaded
the Chancellor Lloyd George to use the Bank of England's gold reserves
to support the banks, which ended the immediate crisis. Keynes stayed
with the Treasury until 1919. The war years of 1914-18 had seen an
increase in the National Debt from £650 million at the start of the war
to £7,500 million by 1919. This ensured that the Treasury developed new
expertise in foreign exchange, currency, credit and price control skills
and were put to use in the management of the post-war economy. The
slump of the 1930s necessitated the restructuring of the economy
following World War II (the national debt stood at £21 billion by its
end) and the emphasis was placed on economic planning and financial
Why is there is no mention whatsoever of the £300 million of Bradbury
debt-free paper Treasury Notes issued in 1914? Instead, it says Lloyd
George, on the advice of John Maynard Keynes, used the Bank of England’s
gold reserves which, according to Johnston, only amounted to £9
million. What is going on here? Who is telling the truth? Could it be
that HM Government, the puppets of the City of London, don’t want you to
know about the simple but effective concept of debt-free and
interest-free Treasury Notes?
What Do The System-serving Politicians And "Economists" Say About The issuance Of Treasury Notes?
As soon as the concept of the debt-free and interest-free Greenback
Dollar (and now the Bradbury Pound) is raised in polite conversation
with either a politician or an economist, two immediate knee jerk verbal
reactions occur from these system-servers.
The first is to say that if a government suddenly starts printing its
own money through its treasury based on the credit and wealth of the
country, instead of going through its central bank, we would be heading
towards what happened in the Weimar Republic in Germany in the early
1920s where hyperinflation spiralled out of control and a loaf of bread
was bought with a barrow load of almost worthless paper money.
To this I just say look again at what actually happened in Germany at
that time. It was not the Weimar’s treasury but it was the privately
controlled central bank, the Reichsbank, who was printing the money,
coupled with the extreme actions of currency speculators and foreign
investors that caused all of the problems.
Hyperinflation could not happen as a result of the Bradbury Pound,
because the democratically elected government would actually ‘govern’
... now that is novel! Speculation would be prevented, and most
importantly, the newly created money would be spent on a productive
economy, rather than bankers bonuses.
The second reaction from system-servers is that the country is already
printing its own money – it is called Quantative Easing, that mysterious
cash injection into the economy which only seems to get as far as the
banks and not to where it is actually needed. Only trouble is, it is the
Bank of England doing the printing and not HM Treasury. Based around
government issued Bonds (promissory notes based on the wealth of the
nation), this complex process only increases the National Debt and it
certainly doesn’t solve anything.
The simple truth is that people who serve the system and who have been
‘educated’ by such organisations as the Fabian inspired London School of
Economics (LSE), are not suddenly going to bite the hand that gives
them a very good living.
So what does all of this mean for us, the people?
Before looking at this, let’s just consider for a moment what ‘money’
actually is. It is simply a convenient unit of exchange for goods and
services that people have COMPLETE CONFIDENCE in. Now if HM Government
were to issue debt-free and interest-free treasury notes through HM
Treasury rather than the Bank of England in order to meet the needs and
happiness of all the people whilst getting them out of unlawful debt, my
guess is that people might have a lot of confidence in such a benign
and benevolent financial system.
There is absolutely no defence for the present system whereby private
bankers create money completely out of thin air for themselves to lend
and then charge interest on that ‘nothingness’. The Bank of England,
with its hidden controller the Bank for International Settlements based
in Basel, Switzerland (often described as the Central Bank of Central
Banks), dictate behind the scenes the fiscal policies and direction that
our supposed sovereign and independent government must take. We are all
prisoners of this utterly corrupt system and it’s time to confront it
head on to collapse it.
If our government were to go down the path of a new Bradbury Treasury
Note (as well as pursuing the banksters with Common Law for their crimes
against humanity) then our debt burden would be removed overnight –
there would be no deficit and no national debt. Under Common Law, all
debts involving the use of fractional reserve lending by the central and
private banks will be written off as they were arrived at by the use of
fraud. Money would be immediately made available by HM Treasury to meet
the essential needs of the country. The nation’s happiness, well-being
and security would be taken care of without the need for an invasive and
complex tax system. We would have Gross Domestic Happiness instead of
Gross Domestic Product dictating humanity’s future.
None of this is rocket science – if the Spanish and Greek governments
genuinely wanted to put right overnight the economic woes of their
countries, they would immediately start printing and supplying
interest-free and debt-free treasury notes based on the wealth and
integrity of their respective countries. They would also tell the IMF,
the EU and the Bank for International Settlements to go and whistle for
their ‘money’! Why? Because it was created out of thin air, it didn’t
exist in the first place, and the whole banking system is fraudulent ...
in other words, see you in a common law court in front of a jury!!!!
Banks, money and finance must exist to serve humanity, not the other way
round. Our enslavement by unlawful debt can be ended overnight with one
signature by the Chancellor of the Exchequer. It really is that simple!
