A most curious timeline 1800 – 1900


The following is a presentation of published statements, events and arrangements that presents a view of history often lacking in both public and private education. Taken together, this provides a greater insight and understanding to the forces, and persons (and persons behind them), that have affected our world to such a destructive degree.

He that controls the past, controls the future, and he that controls the present controls the past. – G. Orwell

Some of this material is online elsewhere in various compilations, however, much of the sourcing was incorrect, which has been remedied (cited sources at bottom, with links), and the material has been likewise augmented and compiled in this handy timeline.

1801

Czar Alexander II’s grandfather Paul I, the despotic son of Catherine the Great,  was assassinated.

1828

“Amongst the commercial houses in Europe or elsewhere, which from obscure origin, by discernment and advantageously embracing the opportunity, equally at the command of many others, by their prudent enterprizes, upright proceedings, and particularly by contenting itself  with a certain moderate profit in their immense concerns, have become the great, flourishing and powerful, the house of Rothschild certainly stands pre-eminent. At the recent death of one, who was thought the richest banker in Europe- (M. V. Bethman in Frankfort) when an inventory was taken of his estate, his property did not exceed $2,000,000, when from infallible sources, the house of R. (or more properly speaking the five brothers) possess, wholly unincumbered, $20,000,000, and through their immense influence may command 40,000,000 or more
In the year 1812 Mr. R. died. Seeing his end approaching, he summoned his 10 children to his bed side, and after giving them his parental benediction, exhorted, them under a solemn promise, never to change their religious creed, and strenuously recommended to his sons to observe amongst each other an inviolable union. And never has a father’s admonition been more strictly attended to – for it is a very remarkable trait, characteristic of this family, that its male members, at every transaction of consequence, do as it were consult the words of their departed sire, and very often remind each other of his prudent advice, fostered through wisdom and experience, and never utter his name without reverence – The arrangements which the house of Rothschild entered into in 1813, respecting some very extensive money transactions, has given it its present standing in the commercial world. While it may be here remarked, that in the course of twelve years they, through their mediation and interest, and with their own means, entered into contracts to furnish by loans and subsidies of the immense sum of 500,000,000 dollars to the different courts of Europe, without taking into consideration the by no means inconsiderable sums, advanced on account of French indemnifications. How the house of Rothschild could furnish such extensive means during this period has no doubt been a question with many commercial men and politicians. When it is, however, taken into consideration, that the result of extensive operations does not solely depend on the chances taken at some favorable moment, but in this instance, rather on the fundamental maxims always pursued by the house. It would then appear, that the great success of their speculations principally hinged on those maxims, which were, as before stated, that the five brothers did conduct their business in uninterrupted harmony amongst themselves, and with the strictest integrity – which was the golden rule their dying parent bequeathed, that they jointly deliberated upon every transaction – and wherein teach enjoyed an equal share. And although residing far apart from each other for years, this did in no instance, infringe on their adopted principles, but must have proved in fact, beneficial to all, as it gave each hand the undeniable advantage to watch the movements of the court where he was located – make the necessary preparations for the speculations which were to be entered into, and then communicate the result to the general concern. The second maxim which the house of Rothschild took into view was, as before stated, to be satisfied with a moderate advance on their operations – always to keep them within certain bounds, and so far as human foresight and prudence would admit, to be independent of the sport of chance. By strictly adhering to such undeviating principles they have no doubt acquired that lofty station they hold in the community, whilst their merits have been publicly acknowledged by most of the European courts. [Charleston Courier.] [1]

1835

“The ROTHSCHILDS are the wonders of modern banking … we see the descendants of Judah, after a persecution of two thousand years, peering above kings, rising higher than emperors, and holding a whole continent in the hollow of their hands. The Rothschild govern a Christian world. Not a cabinet moves without their advice. They stretch their hand, with equal ease, from Petersburgh to Vienna, from Vienna to Paris, from Paris to London, from London to Washington. Baron Rothschild, the head of the house, is the true king of Judah, the prince of the captivity, the Messiah so long looked for by this extraordinary people. He holds the keys of peace or war, blessing or cursing. To what will all this lead? Is the holy city to be rebuilt? – the third temple to rear its turrets to heaven? No. The lion of the tribe of Judah, baron Rothschild, possess more real force than David – more wisdom than Solomon. What do they care for the barren seacoast of Palestine? They are the bankers and counsellors of the kings of Europe and of the republican chiefs of America. What more can they desire? We understand that as accomplished and beautiful daughter of this house, is married to an American, and intends soon to make New York her permanent residence. The beauty of Judah is not departed, nor is the strength of the house of Israel weakened. [N.Y. Herald, Sept 19, 1835]” [2]

1847

“The five brothers (Anselm, Solomon, Nathan, Charles & James) have taken part in most of the great financial affairs of Austria, of France, of England, and of almost every country. They have formed among themselves an invincible phalanx. By themselves, or by their agents, they have exercised a great control over the principal places in Europe, and, faithful to their habit, never to undertake anything separately and to concert all their operations, they have followed one unvaried and identical system. Their power was such, that at one time they were free to make either peace or war.“ [3]

1852

The influence of the Jews may be traced in the last outbreak of the destructive principle in Europe. An insurrection takes place against tradition and aristocracy, against religion and property… The natural equality of men and the abrogation of property are proclaimed by the secret societies who form provisional governments and men of Jewish race are found at the head of every one of them.“ [4]

1855

“No nation can now wage a prolonged war without the aid of the great Jewish bankers of Europe.” [5]

1864

“The Alliance is not limited to our cult; it voices its appeal to all cults and wants to penetrate in all religions, as it has penetrated into all countries. Let us endeavor boldly to bring about the union of all cults under one flag of “Union and Progress”: such is the motto of humanity.”  Adolph Crémieux (president of Alliance Israëlite Universelle and supreme Master of Scottish Rite Freemasonry). [6]

1869

“Himself a Jew, Marx has around him, in London and France, but especially in Germany, a multitude of more or less clever, intriguing, mobile, speculating Jews, such as Jews are every where: commercial or banking agents, writers, politicians, correspondents for newspapers of all shades, with one foot in the bank, the other in the socialist movement, and with their behinds sitting on the German daily press — they have taken possession of all the newspapers — and you can imagine what kind of sickening literature they produce. Now, this entire Jewish world, which forms a single profiteering sect, a people of bloodsuckers, a single gluttonous parasite, closely and intimately united not only across national borders but across all differences of political opinion — this Jewish world today stands for the most part at the disposal of Marx and at the same time at the disposal of Rothschild. I am certain that Rothschild for his part greatly values the merits of Marx, and that Marx for his part feels instinctive attraction and great respect for Rothschild.

This may seem strange. What can there be in common between Communism and the large banks? Oh! The Communism of Marx seeks enormous centralization in the state, and where such exists, there must inevitably be a central state bank, and where such a bank exists, the parasitic Jewish nation, which, speculates on the work of the people, will always find a way to prevail ….” [7]

“He (Bakunin) must refute the charges of Hess and the rest of the “German Jews” who, he said, were all – except for Marx – out to get him. While he was “in no way either the enemy or the detractor of Jews,” he told the editors of Le Reveil, to which he sent his response to Hess’s criticism, he was convinced by “ethnographic history” that Jews were “par excellence exploiters of other peoples’ labor” and, therefore, “completely opposed to the interests as well as the instincts of the proletariat.” “I know very well,” he went on, “that in frankly expressing my personal thoughts about the Jews I expose myself to enormous dangers. Many people share [these views], but very few dare to express them publicly, because the Jewish sect, far more formidable than Catholic Jesuits and the Protestants, constitute a real force in Europe today. They reign despotically in commerce and in the banks and have overrun three-quarters of the German press and a very significant part of the press of other countries. Too bad for anyone careless enough to displease them!” [8]

1877

“To-day, the great Jewish bankers, such as the Rothschilds, may almost be said to hold in their hands the peace of Europe. They are creditors of most of the Governments of the world and there are few nations willing to risk the dangers and losses of war unless they have assurance from these potent capitalists of such monetary aid as may be necessary for carrying on a campaign. In the present European war, one of the combatants, having nothing to lose, is reckless of the consequence to her already bankrupt treasury, and the other, while yet the conflict has scarcely begun, has been compelled to seek the aid of Jewish bankers to secure means for its prosecution.” [9]

1879

“In August of 1879, the leaders of the Will of the People decided to assassinate Czar Alexander II. Their initial plan was to blow up the Czar’s train. They split into 2 groups and, disguised as shopkeepers, rented 2 buildings along the Imperial route. They established businesses by day, and dug tunnels and mined the tracks at night.

“On November 18, the Czar’s train approached the 1st death trap, commanded by the respected leader Andrei Zhelyabov, born a serf and educated at the University of Odessa on a scholarship. The explosives failed to detonate here.

“The back-up death trap, 24 hours down the line, was manned by Sophia Perovskaya and her comrades. According to the information they possessed, the Imperial entourage consisted of 2 trains, the 1st of which would be sent in advance to test the safety of the route; the 2nd would carry the Czar. Sophia let the 1st train go by and blew up the 2nd. The train was derailed, but no one was seriously injured. In any case, the Czar had been traveling in the 1st train.

“After this setback, the revolutionaries embarked on a series of ambitious assassination attempts, including a huge bomb explosion under the dining room of the Winter Palace. All attempts were unsuccessful.

1881

“Finally, Zhelyabov and Perovskaya, now lovers, formulated the plot that eventuated in the successful March 1 tyrannicide. Their plan involved the purchase of a basement store front on Malaya Sadovaya Street, and the establishment of a bogus cheese shop. They dug a tunnel under the street and planted an explosive charge, hoping to blow up the Czar’s carriage as it passed on its way to the palace. In addition, 4 bomb-carrying men were prepared to attack the Czar personally.

“Immediately before the scheduled assassination, Zhelyabov was arrested. Perovskaya assumed the responsibilities of leadership. The Czar decided to travel along an alternate route, bypassing Malaya Sadovaya, and so the mined street plan had to be abandoned. A short while later, Ignaty Grinevitsky dashed out of the crowd and blew up both the Czar and himself. Apparently the revolution could now begin.

“Not so. The expected uprisings failed to materialize. Numb confusion followed the assassination, and after the 6 principal conspirators were convicted and executed, their revolutionary organizations quickly deteriorated. The … Russian revolutionary movement floundered for almost 10 years.” [10]

His son and heir, Alexander III, reimposed restrictions on Jews.

“It must be admitted that the Jewish people control the financial markets of Europe, possessing a much greater influence than in this country. The Emperor of Russia found that he could not place a loan in the Continental markets, because Rothschild did not view such a loan as favorable to the interests of England. A few Jewish bankers are therefore really the arbitrators of peace and war in Europe.” [11]

1887

No other war is now possible for Prussia-Germany than a world war, and indeed a world war of hitherto unimagined sweep and violence. Eight to ten millions soldiers will mutually kill each other off and in the process devour Europe barer than any swarm of locusts ever did. The desolation of the Thirty Years War compressed in three or four years and spread over the entire continent: famine, plague, general savagery, taking possession both of the armies and of the masses of the people, as a result of universal want; hopeless demoralization of our complex institutions of trade industry and credit, ending in universal bankruptcy; collapse of the old states and their traditional statecraft, so that crowns will roll over the pavements by the dozens and no one to be found to pick them up; absolute impossibility of foreseeing where this will end, or who will emerge victor from the general struggle. Only one result is absolutely sure: general exhaustion and the creation of the conditions for the final victory of the working class.” Friedrich Engels, 1887 [12]

1890

“The change in the position of the Jew within the last half of the century is one of the most remarkable character. Fifty years ago the Jew was inert and imbecile. Now he exercises a power greater than in the days of David or Solomon. The Jews to-day influence more people, control more bullion, and exercise more legislative power than they did when they had their temple their land, and their sceptre…To-day they attract wider attention than ever before in their history. It is estimated by those who claim to see the drift of things, that in a brief period all the seats of justice will be in their hands. Out of twelve hundred students at law in Berlin, six hundred were Jews. The Berlin and other Councils are ruled by a Jewish majority, and all offices are in the gift of Jews. The German tradesman sinks to a secondary position alongside his Jew competitor, the best squares are filled with the Jew shops, the best estates have passed into their hands; in Germany they have ousted the best families from their patrimonial possessions. This is true of Holland also. The Jew is the world’s chief banker to-day. Almost the whole of the liberal press of Germany is in their hands. And the two leading papers of Rome were, and possibly still are, edited by Jews. The power of the Jewish press of the continent of Europe is very great in matters of political, scientific, and theological. At the bar, the Jew has achieved great eminence within thirty years of opportunity. The children of Jews are being educated in a ratio disproportioned to those of Gentiles in many countries, especially in Germany, Austria, and even Russia. As the Jew has entered into the civilization of the age and become part of it, Rabbiniacal [Talmudic- ed] Judaism has necessarily undergone considerable modification… A spirit of scepticism has laid hold of the younger generation, so that conviction has disappeared; that there is a truth, and that man can obtain it; all idealism is gone, and nothing is considered to be useful and worth while any effort but that which promises material advantage – wealth, honour, power, and enjoyment.” [13]

1894

“He [Karl Marx] had that clear Talmudic mind which does not falter at the petty difficulties of fact. He was a Talmudist devoted to sociology and applying his native power of exegesis to the criticism of economic theory. He was inspired by that ancient Hebraic materialism, which, rejecting as too distant and doubtful the hope of an Eden after death, never ceased to dream of Paradise realized on earth. But Marx was not merely a logician, he was also a rebel, an agitator, an acrid controversialist, and he derived his gift for sarcasm and invective, as Heine did, from his Jewish ancestry.” [14]

1896

“The wealthy Jews control the world…In their hands lies the fate of government and nations. They (the Jews) set governments one against the other and by their decree governments make peace. When the wealthy Jews play, the nations and the rulers dance.” Theodore Herzl, in ‘Deutsche Zeitung‘ 1896

Theodor Herzl published “Der Judenstaat (The Jewish State)”. It became the Zionists’ bible. The following exact quotes are from Herzl’s book:

“ The Jews must acquire economic power sufficiently great to overcome prejudice against them. When we sink, we become a revolutionary proletariat, the subordinate officers of all revolutionary parties; at the same time, when we rise, there rises also our terrible power of the purse.” [15]

” … the longer Anti-Semitism lies in abeyance, the more fiercely will it break out.” [16]

“Universal brotherhood is not even a beautiful dream. Antagonism is essential to man’s greatest efforts.” [17]

1897

Lord Edmond Rothschild of London and Jacob H. Schiff of New York City had Theodor Herzl arrange for the World Zionist Congress at Basel, Switzerland. 197 delegates met there and laid out a plan of World Conquest with plans for a World Government. Herzl, founder of Zionism, in opening the meeting, raised his right hand and repeated an ancient oath of the Talmudists: “If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its cunning.” Herzl also said at this meeting: “We are one nation. We are neither American nor Russian Jews, but only Jews!” He also said: “With a few exceptions that do not figure at all, the entire press of the world is in our hands.”

Dr. Mandelstam said on August 29 at the opening of the Zionist Congress of 1897: “The Jews will use all their influence and power to prevent the rise and prosperity of other nations and are resolved to adhere to their historic hopes; i.e., to the conquest of world power.”

The Zionist Organization of America was organized in 1897 with Richard Gottheil of Columbia University as its first president, and Rabbi Stephen Wise as the first secretary. Branches for women (Hadassah) and children (Young Judea) were soon organized. [18]

1898

“The Jews energetically reject the idea of fusion with the other nationalities and cling firmly to their historical hope of world empire.” [19]

1899

In 1899, [Ivan Sanislavovich]Jan [Gotlib] Bloch published a book about military warfare titled, “Is War Now Impossible?”, within which he “argued that, for three reasons, a major European war would be unprecedented in its scale and destructiveness. Firstly, military technology had transformed the nature of warfare in a way that ruled out swift victory for an attacker.” Bloch envisioned a “long war”, a “great war of entrenchments”, which “‘would involve as many as ten million men, with fighting ‘spread over an enormous front’ Thus, although there would be very high rates of mortality (especially among officers), ‘the next war [would] be a long war.’ Thirdly, and consequently, economic factors would be ‘the dominant and decisive element in the matter.’ War would mean: ‘entire dislocation of all industry and severing of all sources of supply … the future war[is] not fighting, but famine, not the slaying of men, but the bankrupting nations and the break-up of the whole social organization.’The disruption of trade would badly affect food supply in those countries reliant on imported grain and other foodstuffs. The machinery of distribution would also be disrupted. There would be colossal financial burdens, labour shortages and, finally, social instability.” [20]

1900

Theodor Herzl, the Zionist leader, went to see Abdul Hamid the Sultan of Turkey, to buy land for the Zionists in Palestine. When the Sultan said “no”, he had a revolution on his hands (1914).

Between 1900 and the outbreak of World War I (1914), the United States was flooded by large waves of immigration from Eastern Europe.
