Lies being taught;
Causes of French revolution;
1. Peasants resented Royal absolutism and extravagancy.
2. An unmanageable national debt and inequitable system of taxation.
3. Food scarcity in the years immediately before the revolution
Now the truth;
Beginnings of French Revolution. Background to financial crisis;
France was a colonial rival of Britain. It had suffered heavy defeats to the British in the Seven Years War - especially its American theatre, the French-Indian War - only years earlier. France thus wanted to help colonists get independent. The Americans also needed help so they sent Benjamin Franklin to France to form an alliance with France's King Louis XVI. The Lodge Les Neuf Sœurs was a prominent lodge attached to the Grand Orient de France that was particularly influential in organising French support for the American Revolution and later in the intellectual ferment that preceded the French Revolution. Benjamin Franklin was a member of this Lodge when he was serving as liaison in Paris. Benjamin Franklin was received with great Enthusiasm in France. They saw the revolution as an opportunity to strip Britain of their North American possessions in retaliation for France's loss of Canada a decade before. At first France sent agents to observe the war, sent secret supplies like muskets, pistols, ships, drums, food, money, and much more and began preparations for war against Britain in support of the rebels. When the American army at Saratoga captured the British army in 1777, the France saw their chance to openly declare themselves as allies of the revolutionists. The two countries signed the Treaty of Amity and Commerce and the Treat of Alliance on February 6th, 1778. Now fully committed to the war, France supplied arms, ammunitions, supplies and uniforms. French troops and naval power were also sent to America, reinforcing and protecting Washington’s Continental Army. American General Washington and French General Lafayette got an army ready to attack British General Cornwallis at Yorktown. French Admiral De Grasse blockaded by the York river to the north stopping a British fleet from retrieving Cornwallis. The Americans and French won the battle capturing Cornwallis and thousands of English soldiers thus ending the hostilities. French won the war in favor of America. French became the first country to recognize the Declaration of Independence, signed in 1776. Benjamin Franklin, American General, George Washington and French General, Lafayette who won the war of independence of America and resultantly put France in huge financial debt of Jewish Bankers were all Freemasons.
The Financial Crisis;
France spent 1.3 billion livres to support the Americans directly, in addition to the money it spent fighting Britain on land and sea outside the U.S (wiki) which could be another billion livres. Prior to that French had conducted another costly war The Seven Years War, lasting from 1756 to 1763. That war had cost France 1.8 billion livres. All this money was borrowed as debt from International financiers.
The Debt Trap of International Bankers and financiers;
The Rothschild family descending from Mayer Amschel Rothschild, a court Jew to the Landgraves of Hesse-Kassel, had an established banking business since 1760s which grew exponentially during French revolution. Meyer Amschel Rothschild won the patronage of Crown Prince Wilhelm of Hesse (who had also earlier patronised his father), gaining the title of "Court Factor" in 1769. Rothschild's banking business included several European nobles.
Benjamin Disraeli's in his novel, "Coningsby" (London, 1844) stated that Rothschild was behind and had also financed the revolutions in France the year 1789, 1830, and 1848. Therefore it is understandable that Marx never criticized Rothschild. At the Soviet Communist Party Congress in 1979 Professor Valeri Yemelyanov stated that "the Jewish freemasons pyramid controls 80 per cent of the economy of the capitalist countries and 90-95 per cent of the information media".
"So you see, dear Coningsby, that the world is governed by very different personages to what is imagined by those who are not them- selves behind the scenes," said Sidonia in Benjamin Disraeli's novel, "Coningsby" (London, 1844, p. 233).
Debt, particularly international debt, is the first and overmastering grip. Through power of debt men in high places are suborned, powers and influences are introduced into the body politic. When the debt grip has been firmly established, control of every form of publicity and political activity soon follows, together with a full grip on business including food supply.
By 1780 financial paralysis was firmly established and International Bankers and financiers were in complete control. "They possessed so large a share of the world's gold and silver stocks, that they had most of Europe in their debt, certainly France."
So writes Mr McNair Wilson in his Life of Napoleon, and continues on page 38:
"A change of a fundamental kind had taken place in the economic structure of Europe whereby the old basis had ceased to be wealth and had become debt. In the old Europe wealth had been measured in lands, crops, herds and minerals; but a new standard had now been introduced, namely, a form of money to which the title 'credit' had been given."
The debts of the French Kingdom though substantial were by no means insurmountable, except in terms of gold: and had the King's advisers decided to issue money on the security of the lands and real wealth of France, the position could have been fairly easily righted. As it was the situation was firmly gripped by financiers, who imposed the system of international usury. Under such villainy, the bonds of usury grew heavier and more terrible, for debts were in terms of gold or silver, neither of which France produced.
Faced with a financial crisis, the king called an Assembly of Notables in 1787 for the first time in over a century.
Role of Freemasons;
All the major actors in French Revolution of were prominent Freemasons namely; Marquis de La Fayette, Voltaire, Marquis de Condorcet, Mirabeau, Georges Danton, Hébert, Jean Paul Marat, Giacomo Girolamo Casanova and Giuseppe Balsamo.
The Grand Master of French Freemasons Grand Orient de France from 1771–93, Louis Philippe II, Duke of Orléans himself led from the front. Masonic head Quaters the "Palais Royale" were head quarters of French Revolution, Freemasons, Jacobins and false propaganda.
The False propaganda;
Head quarters of French Freemasonry Palais Royal had its own printing press which churned out pamphlets reporting false, misleading and / or exaggerated information and accusing King and Queen of oppression and extravagancy, opulence thus stirring up public opinion against the monarchy.
Giuseppe Balsamo @ Count Alessandro di Cagliostro, a freemason played major role in false propaganda about Louise XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette. He was involved in false accusation on Marie Antoinette regarding Diamond Necklace to prove that King and queen were spending hard earned money of peasants on diamonds (extravagancy and opulence) whereas peasants were poor and had no food. (more on this later).
The Jewish Bankers;
Empty stomachs do not sustain a revolution. Leaders needs to be enriched to be continually involved. Sustained false propaganda needs money. Among the Jewish bankers who helped finance the French Revolution are Daniel Itzig (1722-1799), David Friedlander (1750-1834), Herz Cerfbeer (1730-1793), Benjamin Goldsmid (1755- 1808), Abraham Goldsmid (1756-1810), and Moses Mocatta (1768- 1857), partner the Goldsmid brothers, and uncle of Sir Moses Montefiore (Olivia Marie O'Grady, "The Beasts of the Apocalypse", First Amendment Press, 2001, p. 123). All were connected to the Freemasonry and Illuminati.
Source; Occult Theocracy by Lady Queensborough, and L'Anti-Semitisme by the Jew Bernard Lazare, 1894.
Marquis de Mirabeau is known to have been financed by Moses Mendelssohn, head of the Jewish Illuminati. He was not only an early figure-head in French Freemasonry in the respectable years, but introduced Illuminism into France. Moses Mendelssohn is the 'learned Jew' who is quoted as saying that: "Judaism is not a religion. It is a law religionized".
Closing the fist;
International Jewish Bankers and Freemasons created artificial financial crisis. They are also accused of buying and hoarding all the grain, preventing grain laden ships from anchoring at crucial times thereby creating artificial scarcity and raising price. This became catalyst for French revolution. The Bastille storming was planned at and led from “Palais Royal” headquarters of French Masonry in a replica of American Revolution which began with Bostan Tea Party which was planned at and led from “Saint Andrews Freemasons Lodge”, Boston.
When the head of king Louis XVI fell beneath the guillotine, a man leaped onto the scaffold. He dipped his hand in the monarch’s blood, flung it out over the surrounding throng and cried, “Jacques de Molay, thou are avenged!”
“Jacques de Molay” was Grand master of Knight Templar’s the predecessors of present day Freemasons who on Friday, October thirteenth, 1307 were percuted under orders of then Pope Clement and French King Philippe IV.
In my next articles, I will examine the individual role and how the fist later crushed those who helped it.
