In a 2008 article on corbettreport.com, James Corbett writes:
In a startling interview on The Alex Jones Show yesterday, Matthew Rothschild went further than ever before on Infragard, the secretive FBI program to deputize business that Rothschild first detailed in
an article for The Progressive magazine(article pulled).
Speaking about what one source told him, Rogthschild revealed that martial law is "going to be when, not if, according to the FBI and Homeland Security."
This revelation comes through an Infragard whistleblower, one of the sources for Rothschild's original Progressive article, who also detailed that members of Infragard are authorized by the FBI to "shoot to kill" in the event of martial law. Rothschild has spoken at length about the shoot to kill powers of Infragard members (most notably in this recent appearance on Democracy Now) but it's the first time he has revealed that the FBI and Homeland Security consider the implementation of martial law a certainty.
Of course, this comes as little surprise to those who have witnessed the long, methodical build-up to martial law that has been taking place for years now. This has been evident, for instance, in legislative moves to strip away safeguards against the implementation of martial law, such as the abolition of posse comitatus under the John Warner Defense Authorization Act. Other obvious steps in this direction include
NSPD51(article pulled), the National Security Presidential Directive in which President Bush granted himself dictatorial powers over government in the event of martial law, and the well-documented construction of US FEMA camps to detain citizens in the event of insurrection which have now been reported on in the San Francisco Chronicle.
As Rothschild's source indicates, it seems the government is indeed in a mindset that martial law will be declared in the U.S. sooner or later. One can only speculate why the government is scrambling to prepare for this eventuality and what manufactured incident might set it off.Rise to Prominence
Look for the FBI to issue another phoney denial which disputes none of the facts provided
like they did with Rothschild's original report(article pulled).
The family's rise to international prominence began with Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744–1812), the son of Amschel Moses Rothschild, a money changer. Born in the ghetto (called "Judengasse" or Jew Alley » See: Jerusalem Jewish Quarter/Jewish quarter (diaspora)) of Frankfurt am Main, he developed a finance house and spread his empire by installing each of his five sons in European cities to conduct business. An essential part of Mayer Rothschild's strategy for future success was to keep control of their businesses in family hands, allowing them to maintain full discretion about the size of their wealth and their business achievements. Mayer Rothschild successfully kept the fortune in the family with carefully arranged marriages between closely related family members. His sons were:
- Amschel Mayer Rothschild (1773–1855): Frankfurt
- Salomon Mayer Rothschild (1774–1855): Vienna
- Nathan Mayer Rothschild (1777–1836): London
- Calmann Mayer Rothschild (1788–1855): Naples
- Jakob Mayer Rothschild (1792–1868): Paris
The Rothschild coat of arms contains a clenched fist with five arrows symbolizing the five sons of Mayer Rothschild, a reference to Psalm 127. The family motto appears below the shield, in Latin, Concordia, Integritas, Industria, (Harmony, Integrity, Industry). The German family name means "Red Shield".
Families by country:
- Rothschild banking family of Naples Rothschild banking family of England
- Rothschild banking family of Austria
- Rothschild banking family of France
The basis for the Rothschild fortune was laid during the latter stages of the Napoleonic Wars. From 1813 to 1815, Nathan Mayer Rothschild in London was instrumental in the financing of the British war effort, handling the shipment of bullion to the Duke of Wellington's army in Portugal and Spain, as well as arranging the payment of British financial subsidies to their Continental allies. Through the commissions earned on these transactions, the Rothschild fortune grew enormously.
