We know that the Rothschild family did have enough political power on politicians like the late John McCain. In fact, the Rothschild family always tried to manipulate politicians in the 1800s. As the British newspaper the Independent put it way back in 2008:
“The Rothschild family and politics have been intertwined for generations, ever since Nathan Rothschild, who founded the English branch of the family business, financed Britain’s war against Napoleon two centuries ago…
“When another member of the clan, Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, married the New York businesswoman Lynn Forester, they spent the night of their wedding dinner in the White House as guests of Bill Clinton. Lady Rothschild was a fund-raiser for the Democrats, but defected to the McCain camp after her friend Hillary Clinton was beaten to the nomination by Barack Obama.”
The Rothschild’s dominance and power through covert means were even admitted by historian Gustavus Myers, who wrote in The History of the Great American Fortunes that “under the surface, the Rothschilds had a powerful influence in dictating American financial laws. The law records show that they were the power in the old Bank of the United States.”
By the middle of the nineteenth century, the Bank of England was dominantly controlled by the Rothschild family. As Jewish Austrian writer Frederic Morton wrote, by the middle of the nineteenth century, “Rothschild was now banker to empires and continents—to all the principal European countries, to Eurasian Russia, to the Americas, to the Indies…In Paris, in Vienna, in Frankfurt and Naples, the titanic brother branches were just as busy.”
Jewish historian Esther Benbassa has similar views. She states that “the Rothschilds were Scottish Rite Masons,” but Benbassa saw Freemasonry as a noble and tolerant religious organization that had welcomed Jews.
Philo-Semitic historian Niall Ferguson declared that Nathan Rothschild “was able to become the principal conduit of money from the British government to the continental battlefields on which the fate of Europe was decided in 1814 and 1815.” Nathan, according to Ferguson, “became the master of the bond market” and “the master of European politics” during the Napoleonic war.
By the nineteenth century, Nathan established “the biggest bank in the world.” An American magazine complained in the 1830s that “not a cabinet moves without [the Rothschilds’] advice. They stretch their hand, with equal ease, from Petersburg to Vienna, from Vienna to Paris, from Paris to London, from London to Washington.”
The Rothschilds, in relation to the Rockefeller Foundation, were behind the “fiat money and inflationist policy of the early New Deal.”(In 2012, the Rothschilds again attempted to merge British and French banking operations in order to gain more control. David de Rothschild declared that the new system would “better meet the requirements of globalization in general and in our competitive environment in particular while ensuring my family’s control over the long term.”
Thomas Dunscombe declared:
“Master of unbounded wealth, [Nathan] boasts that he is the arbiter of peace and war and that the credit of nations depends upon his nod; his correspondence are innumerable; his couriers outrun those of sovereign princes, and…ministers of state are in his pay.”
