The Rothschild began as a humble Jewish family from Frankfurt that started out as money lenders to the German aristocracy and expanded its wealth exponentially and geographically until its interest extended into the ruling house of Austria, Italy, France, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
It’s stupefying how the Rothschild family has reached a point of controlling billions of dollars. The fecund families influence is unrivaled. As noted by historian Niall Ferguson in his book, The World’s Banker: The History of the House of Rothschild, the family has its grip on the purse strings of the world governments, it’s been able to manipulate peace and war to its own glorification.
Its without a doubt that the wars tended to hit the price of existing bonds by increasing the risk that a debtor state would fail to meet its interest payments in the event of defeat and losses of territory. The Rothschild had emerged from traders to fund managers; by the middle of the 19th century, the family was carefully tending to its own vast portfolio of government bonds.The Napoleonic Wars proved that the family stood to lose more than they gained from conflict due to the fact that it had made its money, it decided to put its financial weight behind Britain and sit on the sidelines.
An article that was published by the Washington Times http://web.archive.org/web/20110506024704/http:/www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/apr/28/geneva-gnomes-global-dread/?page=all , revealed that the power and influence of the Rothschild had not diminished over the last 200 years. The piece asserts that the various programs promoted and established by George Soros are ultimately funded by the global wealth of this notorious family of financiers, the Rothschild’s.
The story which is entitled ‘’Geneva Gnome’s Global Dread,’’ Arnaud de Borchgrave, the editor of the Washington Times identifies the various golden Rothschild threads woven into the globalist tapestry held up as an ensign by George Soros.
The Gnomes of Zurich possessed the world’s best financial intelligence service and hence they were derogatory caricatures of secretive, greedy, stiff Swiss-German bankers, pince-nez acquiver, who ruled over the land of secret numbered accounts for tax dodgers the world over. However, their Geneva counterparts in French-speaking Switzerland were more sophisticated, relaxed in the company of global wheeler-dealers, and they weren’t afraid to speak their minds. George C. Karlweis was one of them and he was the brain behind Banque Privee that was owned by the late Baron Edmond de Rothschild. The biggest claim to fame: George Soros and the launch of his Quantum Fund back in 1969.
Fortunately, an original $100,000 stake in Mr. Soros’ fund was worth $150 million by 1994. The returns between 1970 and 2000 were 3,365 percent. This gradually did 42.6 percent per year for 10 consecutive years. Back in 1992, Mr. Soros bet billions against the British pound and managed to break the Bank of England.
This same cadre of conspirators were responsible for the recent worldwide economic collapse as they were the creators of the central banking structure that enables such booms and busts through the manipulation of worlds currencies.
