It is no coincidence that the two major actions which have undermined the Constitution and taken control away from the people occurred during the same year, and that they are intricately related. The Federal Reserve Act established a central banking system in the United States–not controlled by the federal government–but designed to control the federal government. The Act was passed by Congress on December 23, 1913 and illegally granted authority to a banking cartel to issue Federal Reserve notes as legal tender.
This allowed the U.S. government to borrow these notes–money–to grow beyond the boundaries of the Constitution, and pay them back to the central banking cartel with interest. Where would the money come from to pay back the banking cartel?
“Income taxes”, aka, the non-ratified Sixteenth Amendment.
Notice the burst of ‘federal spending’ outside the Constitutional limits–for example, creating agencies, expanding the military operations overseas, creating laws outside of the eighteen enumerated powers that expanded the government after 1913. The government borrowed money from the FED, and earmarked Americans’ personal income to pay it back. Declaring bankruptcy in 1932, the ‘social security
scheme tax’ was implemented–and promised to Americans as a safety net in their retired years. We’ve all paid into it but the politicians stole it…my mother until her last day paid taxes on that social security ‘income’ that was in fact derived from taxes on her income all the years she worked.
The book, “The Law that Never Was”, researched and written by Red Beckman and Bill Benson, provides the historic documentation that the Sixteenth Amendment was not legally ratified.
