The lame histories of the murder of Abraham Lincoln correctly identify John Wilkes Booth as the trigger puller in the Lincoln assassination, but they delve no further into the conspiracy which put the great president in his grave. We shall correct that omission.
In addition to explicating the murder of Lincoln, we should begin with the origins of the American Civil War which brewed for decades until it erupted into armed conflict in 1861. One aspect frequently overlooked is the involvement of the United Kingdom and France in the epic war, both of whose intrigues were indispensable to the ignition and continuation of the conflagration.
In 1859 Solomon de Rothschild toured the United States, taking special care to visit prominent politicians including "co-religionist" Judah Benjamin, senator of Tennessee, a man whom he praised effusively as "the greatest mind in North America."
In a letter to his cousin Nathan, Solomon urged him to use the family's influence throughout Europe to gain continental recognition of the Confederacy. One thing astute students of the Rothschilds know is that the family is all about money. If there is no profit in a venture, there is no reason to undertake it.
The family made its name by making sovereigns bow to its seignorage by lending them money to fight foreign wars, the ones with Napoleon being the archetype. Thus it would be nigh unto foolish to suppose that Solomon de Rothschild was not in the United States to find supplicants for the family's vast financial resources. We conclude that de Rothschild was establishing the financial basis for the Confederacy with the proviso that Judah Benjamin serve as his protégé in the government of Jefferson Davis.
Thus Benjamin was the Bernard Baruch of his day, wielding enormous power as the puppet master of Davis who could not have undertaken his war for independence without the aid of de Rothschild.
Other Jews who were involved in financing the Civil War were Senator John Slidell of Louisiana, Frederic Erlanger, a Parisian financier who gouged the Confederacy with heavily usurious loans, and Arthur Belmont who would be the Rothschild viceroy in the North to take up the Union cause.
Thus the Rothschilds practiced an early form of what would later become known as full spectrum dominance where they championed both sides of a conflict for the ultimate win-win jackpot. Lincoln, however, was too shrewd for the butchers of America and Europe, bypassing bankster financing with issuance of Greenbacks which were an interest free form of financing. This infuriated the New York Rothschild banksters, an offense which contributed mightily to his assassination a few years later.
While the Rothschilds were drumming up support for the Confederacy, their aim was to carve the United States into two nations which would make controlling them so much easier. The Czar of Russia, Alexander III, did not sit idly by while his enemies made imperial moves on the United States. Indeed many of Lincoln's decisions, including his controversial ones, were to preserve the Union at all costs in order to keep it independent of European powers who were puppets of the Rothschilds.
When William Seward, Lincoln's Secretary of State, recognized the danger of British and French support of the Confederacy, due solely to the machinations of the Rothschilds, he sought help from the Russian Czar who dispatched his naval fleets to San Francisco and New York where they remained for the duration of the war. With this check, the British and French decided to avoid further involvement in the war.
Later, to pay for the assistance, Seward bought Alaska in what was known as Seward's folly. The Russians sold what was to them a distant wasteland for money which helped recoup the cost of their military aid to the North. Seward may have appeared crazy to most, but he was crazy like a fox. Unfortunately it nearly cost him his life, and indeed cost Lincoln his.
With Judah Benjamin firmly entrenched in Richmond, he controlled Davis like a sock puppet. He served in succession as Attorney General, Secretary of War, and Secretary of State for the Confederacy, the latter of which is considered astounding in light of his disastrous failure as Secretary of War, a failure for which many sought to end his government career, including the Confederate Congress.
In 1861 the Confederate armies sought a quick victory over the North since in a long war of attrition they were sure to lose to the materially wealthier North. Thus it was a strategic imperative for them to win the war early, something which they could have easily accomplished at the Battle of Bull Run. After routing the Union army, Lee's forces could have handily taken Washington, but Davis, under Benjamin's tutelage, prevented an advance on the Union Capitol. This strategic blunder cost the South the war.
The large aim in standing down was to exhaust both belligerents by giving the Union time to regroup, hopelessly indebt them to the Rothschilds, and make the slaughtered victims easy prey for the vultures who would sweep in after the carnage. Taking Washington so early would prevent the realization of these lofty goals.
While Benjamin claimed that a shortage of supplies prevented development of follow through to the victory, this excuse has been debunked. Generals Stonewall Jackson, P G T Beauregard, and Wise would loathe Benjamin to their dying days for his perfidy in failing to take Washington. Even the Confederate Congress pressured Davis to fire the ostensibly incompetent Benjamin, but as the money lender, there was no way that would happen; so Davis reassigned him as Secretary of State.
When the war ended, Benjamin accompanied Davis out of Richmond to Washington, GA from which point he abandoned his sock puppet for Florida, eventually making his way to England where he served as a barrister for a number of years - most assuredly compensation for a job well done. In abandoning Davis, Benjamin showed his true colors.
Before deserting the South, Benjamin sought his final revenge on Lincoln. Few understand today that the murder of the president was a supremely well planned conspiracy, a fact understood by all at the time of the attempted wipeout of the US government in April 1865. Benjamin was also under suspicion as a ring leader in the conspiracy at the time.
Not only was Lincoln targeted, but so was Vice President Andrew Johnson, Secretary of State Seward, and Ulysses Grant. The effort to plan a conspiracy so vast could not have been undertaken by an actor out on loan, Mary Surratt and her hoodlums, and the treasonous Dr Mudd. No, this vast of a conspiracy required professional assistance, the type of which could only come from the Bank of England via the Rothschilds.
The Bank of England was the premier intelligence agency in the world at the time of the Civil War, and was the progenitor of MI 5 and 6. Their services were provided to the Confederate Secret Service to plan the execution of Abraham Lincoln.
Thus Benjamin was the conduit and perhaps mastermind behind the plot. Wilkes was just a pawn and actor in the great drama.
Benjamin's haste to leave the US was due less to his status as a war criminal than as a murderer of Abraham Lincoln. His burning of all Confederate Secret Service documents was surely to cover his tracks in the various black operations against the North.
Most of the historical narrative above derives from a fascinating presentation by Mike King as noted in the Reference section. We have added additional conclusions based upon our understanding of the Rothschild Terrorist Family.
While the Rothschilds failed to achieve all of their aims in the Civil War, they would come back in 1913 with a vengeance and accomplish more than they could have dreamed of in 1859 when Solomon de Rothschild first visited the United States beating the drums of war.Mike King, Judah Benjamin: The Big Jew of the Confederacy, Tomato Bubble, July 24, 2015, accessed 7/24/2015
