First of all, who were the Knights Templar? Were
they a figment of author Dan Brown's imagination or were they a real group? In
fact, they were totally authentic and were a military branch of
Christian monks who protected Christian pilgrims traveling to the Holy Land. With their headquarters at the site of Solomon's Temple, they thus obtained the name, The Knights Templar.
Besides protecting pilgrims, the Knights made an enormous profit in something called Usury. Usury was a form of
money lending where an initial charge was made for a loan, or interest was
charged on the repayments. The increase of the Knights Templar wealth in turn
led to becoming involved in banking which in turn brought even greater wealth
into the Knights Templar order. Their financial power due to their banking
activities led to great political power in all of the countries in Europe of
the Middle Ages.
The Knights Templar
banking activities increased their financial wealth and political power.
Powerful monarchs went to the Knights Templar to obtain loans. This was the
case of King Philip IV of France, who was already heavily in debt to the
Knights Templar when he requested a further loan to finance a war. Fearing the
growing influence of the Knights and their economic stranglehold over Europe, he eventually accused
them of being Satanist and forcefully disbanded the group on Friday, October 13
in 1307--thus abolishing his loans.
Now, let's take a closer look at the Federal Reserve. Who are they? First of all, despite the belief of mostly all Americans, the Feds are a private organization run by private bankers. They provide the
government with a ready source of loans and serves as the safe depository for
federal monies. The Federal Reserve is also a low-cost mechanism for
transferring funds and is an inexpensive agent for meeting payments on the
national debt and government salaries.
And the resemblance continues. The Feds, just like the Knights, make enormous sums of money from the money they lend out to the US government. Now, instead of The Knights Templar having financial control over France, the Feds have financial control over the United States.
Let us now learn from history. In order for France to remain financially solvent and keeps it sovereignty, King Philip IV disbanded The Knights Templar. Let us learn from those who came before us and do the dissolve the Federal Reserve before it is too late.
