Here's a blast from the past, a 1912 cartoon warning against the banker-supported Aldrich Plan which opened the gate for the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States, a central bank such as President Andrew Jackson was so determined to root out of the American system for he recognized them for the illuminized government take-over artists they were. As you know, the Bankers' Panic of 1907 was used as the justification (cover) for setting up a central bank the likes of which have orchestrated financial booms, bubbles, busts, and crashes ever since.

The Architect of Destruction by Maureen Scott I received this in an email from a dear friend. I found it so well written, and accurately describing what Obama has done. Please, pass it on, and God bless ~ In 1789, the Continental Congress convened in NYC to inaugurate the first President of the United States, General George Washington. This was done at Federal Hall on the now famous and infamous Wall Street at Ground Zero. These were dedicated men who fought to have a free country and not a dictatorship or a police state. Maureen Scott is an ardent American patriot who was born in Pittsburgh, PA, and retired to Richmond, VA, in 2000. Free from the nine-to-five grind of writing for employers and clients, she began writing political commentary to please herself and express her convictions, as do I. Our Pledge of Allegiance, a military band playing the National Anthem, and the wisdom of our Founding Fathers, inspire her passion and views. Her life is guided by a firm belief that truth is the most importan .. ...
Did you know Federal Hall on Wall Street was our Nations first Capitol Building?
Today in honor of President's Day, I went this morning where George Washington was sworn in, Federal Hall on Wall Street. Very moving.
Federal Hall at 26 Wall Street in was the site of the first Capitol Building of the United States.
An awesome 2nd day in NYC! We started off at Columbus Circle and the Time Warner Center, then to the 9/11 Memorial and World Trade Center, them walked down to Battery Park and took the Staten Island Ferry, seeing the Statue of Liberty. Then walked through the Financial District seeing the NY Stock Exchange, Wall Street, and Federal Hall. Then up to Times Square for lunch at Guy Fieri's new restaurant there, and afterwards walked over to Grand Central Terminal. We ended our evening seeing Chicago on Broadway, co-starring Billy Ray Cyrus, and had a late night dinner at Ellen's Stardust Diner. Wow! My feet are tired, but we've had an awesome day together seeing the NYC sights :)
On April 30, 1789 our first president was sworn in at Federal Hall, our first seat of government located on Wall Street, Manhattan New York. As the newly inaugurated President, George Washington's first act as President was to lead on foot, the Vice President and members of the Senate and House of Representatives, proceed to St. Paul’s Chapel. It was at St. Paul's Chapel that our nation was dedicated to God. Our newly founded Government joined our President, along with the rest of the nation, upon bent knee and in solemn prayer asked for God's favor and blessing upon this nation. It was at that time that our nation was committed by our leader and the people to God Almighty.

So we went to Ground Zero yesterday with our good friends Pastors Joel and Jolanda Wolensky of Macungie, Pa. We had an awesome time! We parked in Statten Island and rode the ferry for free right past Lady Liberty and Ellis Island. When we arrived in Manhattan, we walked to Wall Street and took pictures of the Exchange and the big Bull. We also took a few shots of the Federal Hall where our country was founded. Then we walked over to St. Paul's Chapel where George Washington prayed with our country's founders. We photographed the place where the Sycamore tree once stood that blocked the beam that came in from the Towers; it is now replaced with a evergreen. This evergreen sits on the edge of the grounds closest to where the Towers once stood. I had several very interesting encounters with Lubavitchers. Chabad are very evangelistic and only go after "wayward" Jews and try to bring them back to the "true" faith, based on a personal adherance to Messiah Rebbe Schneerson. So when they walk through a c ...
As I write this, I'm in the Financial District of Manhattan. I'm sitting on the steps of Federal Hall where George Washington took the oath of office.. a couple blocks from the WTC.. steps away from the Trinity Church founded in 1690.. and steps from the New York Stock Exchange. Its an emotIonal place to be.. I can't help but imagine what it was like here 11 years ago.. chaos, panic and horror. All of the people who lost their lives and loved ones is devastating. I'm about to go to the September 11th Remembrance Service at the church where their message wIll be hope and tolerance of ALL PEOPLE. That's what it should all be about- love. No matter who you worship, or where you come from. If we could get to a place of decency and respect for everyone.. the world would be a better place for us all. Remembering the 9/11 victims today and hoping that hate and intolerance can be driven out by love and peace. — at Wall Street. I am so proud of my daughter.
Our first day in NY was crazy. The peop;e here drive like *** There are street vendors on all the streets. One street vendor was selling coffins! There are so many people walking on the streets. I have never seen so many people. And there is NO parking anywhere. We went to Chelsea Market place today. Kitchen Stadium is there from the Food Network. But you need tickets and there was no taping now. We parked in the parking garage and for 1.5 hours it cost us 33.00. Between tolls and parking I'm broke! :) Miss you all. See you soon. This is what we are doing tomorrow: Our itinerary speaks for itself. This is the stuff you want to see: Get out at all of the following stops: * Times Square * World Trade Center Site * New York Stock Exchange * Wall Street * Trinity Church * World Financial Center * Federal Hall * Madison Square Park * Flatiron Building * South Street Seaport * US Customs Building * 5th Avenue * Rockefeller Center * NBC's Today Show Set * St. Patrick's Cathedral * Central Park * Strawberry F ...
The Downtown Manhattan Walking Tour visited many important sites associated with Alexander Hamilton. The tour started in the Trinity Church graveyard, where Hamilton and his wife are buried. After stopping at a few sites of Hamilton's former homes and offices, the tour then continued to Bowling Green. At Bowling Green, The AHA Society had a special flag-raising ceremony of the St. Kitts and Nevis flag. We were joined with representatives from St. Kitts and Nevis and Arthur Piccalo, President of the Bowling Green Association, read a special proclamation from the Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis.The tour then continued to the Alexander Hamilton US Custom House, followed by a stop at Fraunces Tavern. The final major visits of the walking tour included Federal Hall and Wall Street.
George Washington was inaugurated as the nation’s first president at Federal Hall, located on Wall Street.
There is a special celebration this Saturday at Federal Hall, downtown Manhattan, to commemorate it's history and will include a presentations by folks playing George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, as well as a talk by Mike Wallace who wrote the seminal history of NYC -- Gotham. His talk will be on the sequel he's preparing -- Gotham II which covers NYC history from 1898 (the consolidation of the boroughs) forward. I am taking a new ferry boat over to Wall Street from a Jersey shore town which offers free parking so it's very cost effective, and it will be fun to take the ferry! I have a class starting very soon at NY University starting very soon, which will be held downtown, so I will be taking this ferry and thus Saturday will function as "dry run." I'm looking forward!
