In 1811, the charter for the First Bank of the United States ended. President James Madison and ex-President Thomas Jefferson, by now convinced that the American monetary system was in private hands, let it be known that they were going to do everything they could to put a stop to the operations of these greedy private bankers. However, Nathan operating out of the City was omnipotent, which meant he had a lot more gold than all the shareholders of the Bank of England combined. At that time, he had more than half the gold ever produced in the world, an estimated 5000 tons.
On March 4th of that same year, Nathan declared unilaterally that either the application for renewal of the charter of the Second Bank of the USA would be granted, or the United States would find itself involved in a most disastrous war. Quite unexpectedly, on June 18th, 1812, it was President Madison who declared war on England, not the other way around. It begs the question, how did Nathan get Madison to declare a futile, senseless war?
Early on, Nathan realized that there was strong opposition to the renewal of the charter of the First Bank of the United States. Since the USA refused to annul their 1768 trade agreement with France, and since money talks, Nathan had the English parliament strong-arm the Americans into trading with England instead of France, as per Jay’s Treaty signed in 1793. Not surprisingly, the British Admiralty was only too happy to start impressment tactics by seizing American ships trading with France and forcing the American sailors to integrate the English Navy. This was an intolerable situation, and just as Nathan expected, Congress declared war against England.
Congress was forced to borrow from the First Bank of the United States, Mayer’s bank which was still operational, while the English Parliament was forced to borrow from the Bank of England, which had been unofficially taken over by the N A Rothschild & Sons bank founded in 1810. Ever since the Battle of the Nile in 1799, Mayer’s dynasty has financed all opponents in major armed conflicts, for it’s the surest way to get the desired outcome.
The War of 1812, started in August of that year, ended unofficially when the White House, residence of President Madison, was burned down by the English troops in August, 1814. Congress, financially ruined by the war, was forced to sign the charter for the Second Bank of the United States into law on December 15th, 1815, thus giving the bank another twenty-year lease that was to last until 1836. As of that moment, Mayer’s dynasty officially controlled the monetary systems of England and America, and unofficially those of Russia, France, Holland and Germany.
In short, the year 1812 was a pivotal year for the Rothschild dynasty. First, the War of 1812 forced the US Congress to accept a monetary system based on the dollar and controlled by Nathan in the City, the same one that had been established in 1781 by his father. Also, in 1812, the Russian campaign by Napoleon set up the modus operandi with regards to the exploitation of gold for centuries to come. Thereon in, by encouraging the production of gold and buying all the gold produced either in Russia, South Africa, North America, Australia or elsewhere, Nathan and his dynasty would be able to create more democracies by controlling their monetary systems. Unfortunately, 1812 was also the year when the patriarch of the dynasty, Mayer Amschel Rothschild, died in the Judengasse ghetto in Frankfort.
As for the Holy Roman Empire, it was still not completely defeated by the financial power in the City, and it kept doing everything it could to stop Mayer’s dynasty from destroying what remained of the Ancien Regimes of Europe and from taking control of their monetary systems. As expected, major wars were needed in order to completely uproot the Ancien Regimes, and they would all be won in the name of democracy by the powers that be in the City. On her deathbed, Nathan’s mother was heard to say, ‘if my sons didn’t want war, there would be none’, and she was right.
