ACTS OF TREASON AND
THE 37th CONGRESS
During the course of the Civil War, Congress enacted several laws designed to assist the United States (Union) in overcoming the rebel (Confederate) forces. Of these several Acts, the most important acts, and the ones which were to have the most far-reaching effects, were the acts concerning the confiscation of the property of those who were either directly involved in the war against the United States, or were indirectly aiding and abetting the Rebel forces or cause, or concerns.
These Acts went against not only those people of the Confederacy, but also against anyone in or of the Union who aided and abetted those people or causes or concerns of the South. One of the first of these acts was the Act of the Thirty Seventh Congress, Session 1 (Chapter 60), of August 6, 1861, which states:
Chapter LX- An Act to confiscate property used for insurrectionary purposes.
"Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled. That if, during the present or any future insurrection against the Government of the United States, after the President of the United States shall have declared, by proclamation, that the laws of the United States are opposed, and the execution thereof obstructed, by combinations too powerful to be suppressed by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings, or by the power vested in the marshals by law, any person or persons, his, her, or their agent, attorney or employee, shall purchase or acquire, sell or give, any property of whatsoever kind or description, with intent to use or employ the same, or suffer the same to be used or employed in aiding, abetting, or promoting such insurrection or resistance to the laws, any such person or persons engaged therein; or if any person or persons, being the owner or owners of any such property, shall knowingly use or employ, or consent to the use or employment of the same as aforesaid, all such property' is hereby declared to be lawful subject of prize and capture wherever found; and it shall be the duty of the President of the United States to cause the same to be seized, confiscated and condemned.
Sec 2. "He it further enacted. That such prizes and capture shall be condemned in the district or circuit court of the United States having jurisdiction of the amount, or in admiralty in any district in which the same many be seized, or into which they may be taken and proceedings first instituted.
Sec. 3. And be it further enacted That the Attorney-General, or any District Attorney of the United States in which said property may at the time be may institute the proceedings of condemnation, and in such case they shall be wholly for the benefit of the United States; or any person may file an information with such attorney, in which case the proceedings shall be for the use of the informer and the United States in equal parts."
The most important Act of confiscation was the Act of the Thirty-Seventh Congress, Second Session (Chapter 195), of July 17, 1862, which states:
"Chapter CXCV, - An Act to suppress Insurrection, to punish Treason and Rebellion, to seize and confiscate the Property of Rebels, and for other Purposes.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled. That every person who shall hereafter commit the crime of treason against the United States, and shall be adjudged guilty thereof, shall suffer death, and all his slaves, if any, shall be declared and made free; or. at the discretion of the court, he shall be imprisoned for not less than five years, and fined not less than ten thousand dollars, and all his slaves, if any. shall be declared and made free; said fine shall be levied and collected on any or all of his property, real and personal, excluding slaves, of which the said person so convicted was the owner at the time of committing the said crime, any sale or conveyance to the contrary notwithstanding.
Sec. 2. And be it further enacted. That if any person shall hereafter incite, set on foot, assist, or engage in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States, or the laws thereof, or shall give aid or comfort thereto, or shall engage in. or give aid or comfort to. any such existing rebellion or insurrection, and be convicted thereof, such person shall be punished by imprisonment for a period not exceeding ten years, or by a fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars, and by the liberation of all his slaves, if any he have, or by both of said punishments, at the direction of the court.
Sec, 3. And be it further enacted, That every person guilty of either of the offenses described in this act shall be forever incapable and disqualified to hold any office under the United States.
Sec. 4. And be it further enacted, That this act shall not be construed in any way to affect or alter the prosecution, conviction or punishment of any person or persons guilty of treason against the United States before the passage of this act. unless such person is convicted under this act.
Sec. 5. And be it further enacted, That, to insure the speedy termination of the present rebellion, it shall be the duly of the President of the United States to cause the seizure of all the estate and property, money, stocks, credits, and effects of the persons hereinafter named in this section, and to apply and use the same and the proceeds thereof for the support of the army of the United States, that is to say;
First, Of any person hereafter acting as an officer of the army or navy of the rebels in arms against the government of the United States.
Secondly. Of any person hereafter acting as President, Vice President, Member of congress, judge of any court, cabinet officer, foreign minister, commissioner or consul of the so-called confederate states of America.
Thirdly. Of any person acting as governor of a state, member of convention or legislature, or judge of any court of any of the so-called confederate states of America.
Fourthly. Of any person who, having held an office of honor, trust or profit in the United States, shall hereafter hold an office in the so-called confederate states of America.
Fifthly. Of any person hereafter holding any office or agency under the government of the so called confederate states of America, or under any of the several states of the said confederacy, or the laws thereof, whether such office or agency be national, state, or municipal in its name or character; Provided. That the person thirdly, fourthly, and fifthly above described shall have accepted their appointment or election since the date of the pretended ordinance of secession of the state, or shall have taken an oath of allegiance to. or to support the constitution of the so-called confederate states.
Sixthly. Of any person who, owning property in any loyal State or Territory of the United States, or in the District of Columbia, shall hereafter assist and give aid and comfort to such rebellion; and all sales, transfers, or conveyances of any such property shall be null and void; and it shall be a sufficient bar to any suit brought by such person for the possession or the use of such property, or any of it, to allege and prove that he is one of the persons described in this section."
Upon the murder of President Abraham Lincoln, his Vice President, Andrew Johnson, took over the Presidency.
On the 29th of May, 1865. the new President Andrew Johnson proclaimed a general amnesty for all those who took part in the "Recent Rebellion", (Civil War) against the United States except those people who
(a) had served in the State government of any of the Confederate States and had thereby been instrumental in causing that State to secede from the Union, or
(b) had been and officer of any of the armed forces of the Confederacy, being of, or above the equivalent army rank of Brigadier General (One Star General), or (
c) had been a Civil servant in the service of the confederate States of America such as Post Master, Tax Collector, Tithe Collector, or Judge, or
(d) Personally owned assets valued in an amount of $20,000 or more.
The Amnesty gave a blanket pardon to everyone of the former Confederacy who did not fall into those categories mentioned, and those fortunate enough to regain their citizenship automatically, but none of their property. Each of the others who fell in these four above mentioned categories faced the grueling prospect of proving to the United States that he was not a part of the rebellion, did not support the confederacy in any way, and was wholly sympathetic towards and supportive of the United States. To fail in this task was to be convicted of treason and remain deprived of citizenship and property, to succeed meant reinstatement as a landed, propertied "pillar of society".
Anybody from the confederacy still had the right, even after the confiscation of assets, to petition Congress, prove his loyalty to the United States, and upon acceptance of his loyalty, have his property and possessions reinstated by the United States, but the road back was not easy, such a petition had to be made specifically through the governor of his own State, who then had to go through John Worth, the Governor under reconstruction, and only after he passed these two tests could his case be brought before the United States.
In all the Confederate States, less than 700,000 people made application for such petition, and, of all those who petitioned the United States, only 22,105 were granted pardons, and had their property and rights reinstated.
Confiscation was not only limited to those people of the South; some of the people of the Union also had their assets confiscated for their support of the rebellion (and its rebels). The Vanderbilt family epitomizes this situation. Cornelius Vanderbilt is on public record as having supplied the Confederacy.
Unfortunately, it has been realized during the course of our investigations that very few people, be they of either the South or the North, have any idea that the lands and other assets were confiscated at the end of the Civil War, yet the Congressional Record clearly shows the laws which were passed to enable confiscation.
The rash of bankruptcies suffered by those people of the south immediately following the war therefore becomes proof after the fact. Ignorance (or deliberate refusal to accept facts along with a well established and enlarged sense of greed!) will not allow those people "in the know" to accept the facts, and they blithely claim possession of property by either virtue of deeds which pre-date the Civil War, or by virtue of legal and equitable ownership while "forgetting" the terms "lease" or "in trust".
An interesting sideline is that just about every military base which is today operational in the former thirteen Confederate States was, before the Civil War, a plantation which was confiscated from its Confederate owner (usually a General or Colonel or such!) [Interesting DC]
WHO WAS ALBERT PIKE?Albert Pike was born December 1809 and died April 2, 1891. He was a lawyer, a Colonel in the Confederate War, author, and founder of the Illuminati in the United States of America. From 1824 to 1831 much of his time was spent in teaching and private study: in his spare moments he wrote poetry. He acquired an excellent knowledge of the classics and in his reminiscences he states that he spent a year at Harvard, but there is no record of his enrollment there, though in 1859 Harvard conferred upon him the honorary degree of A.M. As a teacher he was connected with schools in Gloucester. Fairhaven. and Newburyport. He had unbounded physical energy, an avid mind, an adventurous disposition, marked independence, and great determination.
The restraints of New England life becoming bored, in March of 1831, with little money and no very definite plans, he started West. Reaching St. Louis by various means of transportation, he then went to Independence, where he joined a party of hunters and traders going to Santa Fe. After some time in that town he accompanied another expedition into the Staked Plains, and finally arrived at Fort Smith, Arkansas, having passed through many hardships and exciting experiences. In 1833 he was leaching school in Pope County, Ark.
Although he was a Massachusetts man, he supported the slavery provision in the Arkansas constitution of 1836, on the ground that since Arkansas bordered on slave states and was settled largely by slaveholders, freedom there would be inexpedient.
In the years following 1837, he became one of the best informed and most capable lawyers of the Southwest. He was the first reporter of the Arkansas supreme court, his work appearing in the first five volumes of Reports (1840-45). In 1842, he published The Arkansas Form Book, containing legal forms and a summary of ordinary legal principle. That same year he was admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court. He believed himself to be the first to suggest a Pacific railroad convention and he vigorously advocated the building of a Southern line. In 1853 he transferred his practice to New Orleans but returned to little Rock in 1857.
His career during the Civil War was an unfortunate one. Although not friendly to slavery and claiming to be opposed to secession except as a last and necessary resource. He cast in his lot with the Confederacy rather than desert his friends and abandon his property.
In the summer of 1861 he was sent as a commissioner to negotiate treaties with the Indian tribes west of Arkansas. In this enterprise he was partially successful.
Later he was commissioned brigadier general, and under orders of Nov. 22, 1861, the Indian country west of Arkansas and north of Texas was constituted the department of Indian Territory and Pike was assigned to command the same.
It was his understanding, he claimed, that the Indians recruited would be used only in defense of their own territory. They were employed, however, in the battle of Pea Ridge, Ark., March 7-8, 1862, where they played an inglorious part and committed some atrocities for which Pike was unjustly criticized.
Feeling that he occupied an independent command and that the safety of the Indians was in his keeping, he resented exercise of authority over his area by Gen. Thomas C. Hindman, in command of the Trans-Mississippi district. This resentment led to much friction between the two. and on July 3, 1862. Pike issued a printed circular regarding the situation, entitled Letter to the President of the Confederate States.
President Davis wrote him under date of Aug. 9, that the publication of this circular was a grave military offense, and that if the purpose was to abate an evil "the mode taken was one of the slowest and worst that could have been adopted".
On July 12, 1862, Pike resigned his commission, but his resignation was not accepted until Nov. 5. In the meantime he aired his grievances in letters to various officials, and under date of July 31,1862, wrote an address to the chiefs and people of the Indian tribes.
The character of this address was such that Col. Douglas H. Cooper ordered his arrest and wrote President Davis that Pike was "either insane or untrue to the South". The arrest was never actually effected, however, and he was granted leave and permitted to return to his home.
For several years alter the war, he was something of a wanderer. His property had been confiscated and he was looked upon with suspicion both in the South and in the North.
In 1867-68 he was found in the southern states of Tennessee, Kentucky, and the Carolinas, where he practiced law and for a time was an editor of a newspaper in Tennessee. While on his journey into the south we have recovered evidence that leads us to believe that at some time while in this area and because he was a lawyer and the likes of one Leroy Springs was also a lawyer and both had been officers in the Civil War and had lost all their property for acts of treason, either became friends or at least knew each other well.
In 1868 he moved to Washington, D.C. here he continued his practice, was associated editor of The Patriot 1868-70, studied much and wrote much, and devoted a large part of his attention to the interests of Freemasonry.
He had become a Mason in 1850, as a Scottish Rite Mason in 1853, and 1859 he was elected sovereign Grand Commander of the Supreme Grand Council, Southern Jurisdiction of the United States, an office which he held for thirty-two years. He also became the founding figure of the Illuminati and wrote the Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
THE RECONSTRUCTION PERIOD
POST CIVIL WARTRUST AND TRUSTEES
In order for you to understand what has happened not only in America but around the world in almost every country you have to know more about how transportation and communication was set up around the world many decades ago. Also, you need to know about Railroad companies and the power that they were given. Also, is needed the knowledge about trust companies, trusteeships and trust holding companies, and about the people that were appointed to the position of trustee.
When Daniel Payseur came to this country in about 1805 give or take a year or two he was a member of the Virginia Company and because he had bought into this corporation, that was owned by the crown of England he had agreed to certain terms, and in so doing that had locked all of his heirs into the same agreement.
This agreement was for the advancement of civilization in the New World and for the finding of natural resources such as gold, silver, and anything else that could be produced and would create a profit. The agreement was signed by some 41 of the 48 families that control the world. These families were to produce and share their profits on a set percentage with the crown of England. And also to advance transportation and communication in our world. At that time we were beginning to develop the use of ships and canal companies and the beginnings of what later became known as railroads. For more information please refer to the chapter on the Virginia Company.
Some of the families that became part of the Virginia Company are still involved today. There are other families that have broken away from the covenant that their ancestors had agreed on.
After Andrew Jackson became president, Daniel Payseur, a friend and associate of the president's was granted two monopolies in this country. One was railroads, which can be many different things besides. The Iron Horse. Also, the monopoly of Banking and both were ancient French businesses of this family.
The railroads in the beginnings had many ups and downs, but after the Civil War on December 15, 1865, a Deed of Trust was signed in Nashville, Tenn. and in this Deed of Trust there was an agreement made between the people developing the railroads and the United States Government to keep the United States Military Railroad Systems operational forever. This Deed of Trust granted to this group of people the power to take control of transportation and communication and all public services for the citizens of the United States and all that encompassed, forever.
This meant that the railroads had total ownership and control of everything in our lives that had to do with transportation and communication and eventually many other products, goods and services. Just for a few examples the railroads developed trains that ran off of coal and steam. This meant that all along their path they had to have coal yards and they had to own the main water supply in the cities. Next came electricity and there were laws at that time written that only the railroads could own the electric power companies. In the cities that the trains path traveled through, now you started seeing electricity in homes. And all that was incorporated into the diesel electric train engines and this is why the search for crude oil became so important.
The way in which railroads were set up was that when a railroad travels over land and comes to a port or large body of water and the transport continues either by ferry, bridge, flatboat, steamship or plane it is a continuation of the railroad and it picks up with the rail system when it reaches land across the river or ocean no matter which one it is. And the railroad also owns the boats, steamship lines, trucking lines and air lines.
Shortly after peace broke out again, all the railroads which had been confiscated under the aforementioned acts of treason, and their attendant lands and appurtenances were sold at auction in Wilmington. North Carolina. All the railroads in each individual State were sold under the name of the prominent railroad in that particular State, for example, all the railroads in the State of Alabama and Mississippi were sold under the name of the Alabama. Tennessee Rivers Railroad. North and South Carolina, which were treated as one State under martial law. had their railroads sold under the name of the Wilmington, Charlotte and Rutherford Railroad Nine men bought all the confiscated railroads in all thirteen States of the former Confederacy, as Trustees, and shortly thereafter transferred the railroads to one man in Dallas, North Carolina. And Lewis Cass Payseur eventually became the heir of his families gain in the ownership of all the railroads and their subsidiaries in America.
While it may be argued that no one person could possibly purchase such an enormous amount of assets it must be remembered that the Wilmington. Charlotte and Rutherford (all the railroads of North and South Carolina) was bought at the Wilmington auction for the sum of four hundred and eighty Dollars ($480.00) in gold and a covenant to be held with the United States of America forever. The other confiscated railroads of the remaining formerly Confederate States were sold for proportionately similar amounts, and ail under the same covenant, which was to keep the transportation and communications system of the United States open and operational forever.
During reconstruction, the Alabama. Tennessee Rivers Railroad was taken over by eastern capitalists and renamed the Selma, Rome and Dalton Railroad. The railroad was confiscated under the acts of treason and reorganized, and was granted a mortgage, rolling stock, rails, etc. and was handed over to the new owners and management on December 15, 1865, who promptly created the Selma, Rome and Dalton Railroad Company as a Lessee and operating company only. The Selma, Rome and Dalton was transferred to the East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia. The company had no land at all, and any land which had been bought by the company, under the terms of its lease, would, immediately upon its acquisition, become the property of the owner of the Alabama Tennessee Rivers Railroad company, its primary lessor, as would any other item so purchased such as rolling stock, tools, rails, cross-ties etc., etc..
This process of leasing the recently purchased railroad to an operating company was practiced throughout the former confederacy, whereby the railroad was leased to a newly formed railroad operating company, and each of the leases had some type of clause to the effect that the property thereafter bought was to immediately thereby become the property of the lessor.
Where this program of leasing did not happen, i.e., where a railroad was constructed by other people, a secondary means of lien was imposed by means of construction or mortgage bonds.
Steel and Iron works were very scarce in the reconstruction period immediately following the Civil War. particularly where the availability of accoutrements necessary for the rebuilding of the railroads was concerned. There was only one steel and iron mill anywhere near the former Confederacy which was capable of rolling the steel rails, and this mill belonged to the man who was a member of the family which was recipient of all nine of the former confederate railroads (from those nine who bought them from the U.S. government).
When Wilmington fell at the end of the Civil War, cutting off Lee's supply line to Appomattox, and thereby precipitating his surrender two days later, there was more than eleven thousand (11,000) miles of railroad track which had been gathered from throughout the confederacy and brought to the railroad yard for safekeeping which, too, was bought along with the railroad.
Needless to say, this created something of a monopoly for the reconstruction period, for the steel mill which owned the primary railroad construction company.
Enterprising individuals who so desired could create their own railroad company and build their own railroad. But they had to play the game by the rules of the railroad construction company. The newly created company 268 would mortgage the land they would be getting from Congress to the railroad construction company, keeping their money raised from shares issued for the purchase of the rolling stock and to cover their initial startup and running costs.
Almost all those railroad companies which had mortgages lost their lands and companies and all other assets in the recessional foreclosures of the late 1860's, 1870's and the worst depression of all of the 1890's.
Secondary railroad construction companies were absorbed by the practice of loaning them rails and anything else they required, and through the same cycle of boom and depression, foreclosing upon them one by one.
What are Antitrust Act?
The Railroad Wartime Act of January 31. 1862
Thirty Seventh Congress. Session II, Chapter 15, 1862
An Act to authorize the President of the United States in certain cases to take possession of Railroad and Telegraph Lines, and for other purposes.
In 1872 on the Charleston. Cincinnati, Chicago Railroad they amended the charter to put poles along the railroad and right of way to "better serve the public at large with electricity, telegraph and telephone." This was Western Union, which in two years (1874) became Western Electric. In 1875 it became American Telephone and Telegraph (AT&T), and in 1982 it became 9 companies, but still it is controlled and owned by the Charleston, Cincinnati, and Chicago Railroad.
The Sherman Antitrust Act of 1885 Specifies that you cannot have a monopoly like Armour Meat Packing Company or Standard Oil and The Sugar Trust
General Sherman was a relative of the Payseurs/Beatty families by marriage. The families set Sherman up in business in New Orleans as a teacher of Economics and then he turned on the families. I guess he was a wee bit jealous of the families wealth and became quite spiteful and wrote the first anti-trust act and got it passed into existence with the intentions of making it rough on the Payseur family. To his dismay he played right into the families plots and plans in getting the bills passed, because all they did was change the names of the corporations, move around and regroup. The owners stayed the same; the names were changed to protect the guilty. It was a test to see if they could keep the real ownership hidden. It worked, and it also kept competition from encroaching on their monopolies that were actually grandfathered in by this act until the 1970's when congress passed the "The Interstate Commerce Act, October 13, 1978".
To start getting a working idea of how all these monopolies came about, let us take a brief look at how these three targeted companies evolved and where they are today. To start with we will begin with the Armour Meat Packing company.
In 1862 the tracks of the Gastonia and Cherryville Railroad were blown up and the parts were used for war implement. The Cahaba and Marion Railroad were removed and used to build the ironclad ship the "Merrimack"
Cherryville was the site of the railroad arsenal of the Confederacy, so, with no railroad to serve it. the arsenal was relocated seventeen miles to the north at Lincolnton, North Carolina. With the arsenal at Lincolnton and with no food to eat the Confederacy started slaughtering the animals to feed the troops. The company which was formed to accomplish this was called the Armoury Meat Packing Company, later to be known as Armour Meat.
Armoury Meat Packing Company operated on the Payseur plantation at Lincolnton, North Carolina, at the site of Lincoln Iron Co. formally "Lincolnton Tin and Iron Co." Which then became known as Carnegie Steel. The deal was that Carnegie would run Carnegie Steel as the front man for Payseur and would in return received 5% and Payseur 95%, and all of this was set up on a 99 year lease to run from June of 1894 to June of 1993. Then the Springs family stole the control of the lease.
The Lincolnton Iron Co. split up and part was then known as Carnegie Steel, and part became known as Pullman Standard Co.
Armor Meat Packing, the family business moved to Chicago and started a company called Elgin Watches which are now know as Elgin Electronics, Sunbeam Electric, and General Electric.
You can find one half of these records in Camden South Carolina and the other half is in Selma, Alabama to make a whole, but. you must follow the narrow gauge railroad bed path to Selma from Camden through the Selma, Rome and Dalton Railroad which goes through Piedmont, Alabama.
The records of the Selma, Rome and Dalton Railroad Company of New York comprise 1/3 of the Sherman Antitrust Act. If you were to go and find the records of the Selma, Rome and Dalton Railroad you could start putting the puzzle together for yourself and see how it changed even the Standard Oil Trust a divestiture of the Sherman Antitrust Act and became Exxon Oil Company owned by this railroad company and Lewis Cass Payseur, never by the Rockefellers.
The Selma, Rome and Dalton Railroad Company, changed its name to become known as Alabama Mineral Land Company of New York with J.P. Morgan to become the head trustee, and as the Payseurs front man, he was to take 5% with L.C. Payseur to received 95%. The Springs family has now taken control of the businesses, and the 99 year leases, and all the income from the stock.
The second 1/3 of the Sherman Antitrust Act was the Wilmington. Charlotte and Rutherfordton Railway Company formed in the city of Lincolnton, North Carolina by the Payseur families.
The Wilmington, Charlotte and Rutherfordton Railway (formally the Chester and Lenoir Narrow Gauge Railroad Company) were the principal owners along with Abe Lincoln's younger brother, and Lewis Cass, the owner of downtown Detroit, (15,000 acres which has never been sold) which was acquired at the end of the Revolutionary War. All monopolies were moved to Detroit, like General Motors and similar companies. Leroy Springs was named as Trustee for the stockholders of this Company in 1854 with William Johnston as co-trustee, in bankruptcy papers at Charlotte.
The Wilmington, Charlotte and Rutherfordton Railway was built from Rutherfordton to the port of Wilmington, and the Beatties owned the franchises (now known as United Fruit and Grace Ship Lines) which constituted the Sugar Trust.
This Act was designed, written and enacted in order to destroy the control of the families over three singular and individual companies:
(1.) Armour Meat Packing Company
(2.) Standard Oil
(3.) The Sugar Trust
The Interstate Commerce Act of 1887
Specified that a Railroad could not have a most-favored customer. When the railroads were getting started in this country back in the 1820's, the railroads were built by the family through the family-owned lands. You don't charge family for use of family land, you charge everyone else. The family built the railroads and Andrew Jackson granted the passage of 2 monopolies.
The Clayton Antitrust Act of 1914
Specified that Banks. Railroads Manufacturing Companies, Mineral Land Companies and other similar businesses could not have common ownership.
The Security Act of 1933
This act was created to stop the continued practice of forcing companies into receivership by economic controls. Which caused the subsequent sale to the highest bidder at public auction contingent upon the buyer paying off all outstanding corporate debts. The members of one family were appointed as trustees for the liquidation. The elder and the father-in-law of most of these Trustees was J.P. Morgan. The Trustees were his sons-in-law. The railroad (through a third party known as Lancaster Cotton Mills) bought the banks and consolidated them under their own bank. This bank was the Bank of Lancaster, South Carolina, which incidentally, was not a member of the Federal Reserve System.
One of J.P. Morgans' sons-in-law was Jack Whitney. This is the Whitney of Pratt and Whitney (aircraft engines), Whitney steamships and Whitney banks, under which was United Fruit, which controls most of the 281 fruit production in South America and its importation into the United States, under which is Tropical Radio and Telegraph which currently controls most of transport and communications in the southern hemisphere.
The Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 and Wheeler Antitrust Act of 1934
Specified that all companies under the Clayton Antitrust Act, in addition to Electrical Power Companies, Water Companies, and Ice Companies, were not to have common ownership.
It was also ruled that in the best interest of the U. S. Military Railroad system that under the present land grants that the railroad should run their wire laterally through all sections granted under the deed of trust of December, 1865 which became all the land to the pacific coast.
The Federal Communications Act of 1934
As it was amended, was an update of the Railroad Wartime's Rules as a division of the original charter of Canal and Steamship Companies. Plank road and railroad companies, and was enacted for the purpose of splitting communications and transportation. It placed communications under the Federal Communications Commission and the transportation under the Interstate Commerce Commission.
The divestiture of January 8th, 1982, of American Telephone and Telegraph (AT&T) by the U.S. Department of Justice set a precedent under the Antitrust enforcement Act of 1978-79 as amended. This was another case of a company, moving around, changing names, etc., etc., but it is still one telephone company; it just appears to have gone through divestiture.
See Part 8 for the list of Payseur owned companies,I now continue the narrative, the following until Tesla was also in 8. DC
In order to keep the true ownership hidden from the government and the public all of these companies and hundreds more were tucked away in parent corporations and companies, almost all of the railroads across the united states were merged into the new "Southern Railway", merger of 1906 that J. P. Morgan helped orchestrate for Payseur.
The Southern Railway, which contained almost all of the railway companies were hidden in one little insignificant short railway line that was called the "Lancaster and Chester Railway Company". The family joke is that they own a little railroad company by the name of the L&C Railway Company and it has a spur line called Southern Railway, which is obstinately all the railroads. They also own one other important little railroad, "The Cheraw and Chester Railroad Company".
The Lancaster and Chester Railway, was owned by a cotton mill by the name of the "Lancaster Cotton Mill", which was owned by L.C. Payseur, the name of Lancaster Cotton Mill was changed in the 1930's to Springs Mills Inc. but the ownership was still by L.C. Payseurs'. It is very important that you remember this one little paragraph.
L.C. Payseur also owned "The Bank of Lancaster", which in recent years has gone on a name changing tangent the last known names were the (NCNB) North Carolina National Bank then it merged with its self and became known as NationsBank For a short digression, research discovered that in the 1980's George Bush became the chairman of the executive committee of First International Bank of Houston. He also became a director of Fist International Bank shares. Inc. ("InterFirst"). InterFirst became the largest bank in Texas and was reportedly running speculation all over South America, China and Europe. Later InterFirst merged with Republic Bank in 1987 to form First Republic Bank, eventually as it appeared all banks in Texas got into a non sovereign situation if you can believe that. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, with the connivance of the IRS, awarded the assets of First Republic Bank to the North Carolina National Bank in exchange for no payment whatsoever on the part of NCNB. Why should they have to pay themselves? NationsBank, which is reputedly a darling of the intelligence community, which is not quite right but makes some sense, being as the banks and CIA are owned by the railroad.
Payseur also owned "Southern Power Company" which is today known as "Southern Company" and owns the control of all power companies in the united states by law that states that only railroads can manufacture electricity. That is why everyone that comes up with a better and cheaper form of energy and would become a threat to the power company is put out of business. Because the railroad has a monopoly at least until the 99 year leases are up.
Payseur owned "The Lancaster Manufacturing Company", which controlled the production of all wood products, such as railroad ties, railroad cars, service poles, furniture, paper etc., etc.. This is were the railroad land grants come in w i t h such names as Boise Cascade, Weyerhaeuser, Crown Zellierback. Mead, Regency companies using the railroad land leased to them "only" from Payseur to product trees for wood products. These companies do not own the land they operate under leases, they do not have the right to sell railroad or timber land that they use. they do not own the land nor the companies.
Mr. Payseur also owned a company by the name of "The Lancaster Cotton Oil", this company started the manufacture of fertilizer and other related items.
Leroy Springs was appointed President of all of Mr. Payseurs companies to oversee them, he was also Mr. Payseurs' attorney and a trustee for his affairs. He was trusted with all kinds of important documents, affidavits and secrets, as to who the true owners were of these companies. Remember that it was stated earlier that the northerner's couldn't get the southern people to work for them, so Northerners would appoint the old ex-confederate officers to run the companies owned by Yankees after the Civil War and all the confiscation's. That is how Leroy Springs got involved with the Lancaster Cotton Mill, and the other companies. He was a manager not an owner.
Nikola Tesla was born in Smiljan, Croatia (now Yugoslavia), on July 9, 1856-1943. Attended the Polytechnic School at Graz for 4 years and spent a year at the University of Prague (1879-1880). His first employment was in a government telegraph engineering office in Budapest, where he made his first invention, a telephone repeater, and conceived the idea of a rotating magnetic field. He subsequently worked in Paris and Strasbourg. Tesla pioneered experiments that led to the discovery of rays, designed guided weapons and continued inventing new dynamos, transformers, condensers, airplanes, steam turbines and speedometers.
Tesla was encouraged by friends to take his invention to America where they would be receptive to new ideas, He was told that Mr. Edison might even be interested in his invention. The manager of the Edison Company in Paris supplied Tesla with a letter of introduction to Edison.
Nikola Tesla arrived in New York in 1884, with four cents in his pocket and a book of poetry, a paper on his thoughts on flying machine and his letter of introduction to Edison. Needless to say, the relationship between Edison and Tesla did not work out.
Soon after Tesla's run in with a more than insecure and greedy Edison, he was quickly grabbed up by one J.P. Morgan, to be passed on to one L. C. Payseur. Tesla was a private person and because of that fact, not a lot is known about his private life. Not all of his travels, associates and business affairs are known to the point where they could be described in books.
After Tesla became associated with Morgan and Payseur he was rushed off to Lincolnton, North Carolina. In this general area of the country, there are many records of Tesla having a resident there and owning property there as well. Tesla was invited by Mr. Payseur to come to the Carolinas to create his inventions of alternating current.
It was called the "Great Falls Experiment". This experiment was conducted on the Catawba River to create an alternating current generator. Tesla was financially backed by Payseur and Morgan. Since you always test a new idea out before you take it public, all of the bugs were worked out in North Carolina before it was taken to the Columbia Exposition at Chicago and on to Niagara falls. "The Great Falls."
In North Carolina in the same place today is the original electric company, still owned by L. C. Payseurs heirs; the name has been changed to "Duke Power.
One of the most famous rivalries of the turn of the twentieth Century was between George Westinghouse (who was also a Payseur man) and Thomas Alva Edison, as to whether A.C. (alternating current) or D.C. (direct current) was the best way to light peoples lives (proverbially speaking) across the country.
George Westinghouse had long been a proponent of the Alternating Current Polyphase Generator invented by Nikola Tesla; Edison had invented the D.C. light bulb for use with 12 volt systems on railroad carriages, and was the chief proponent of the D.C. system. He was also one of the main forces in General Electric, (another Payseur owned company), and between the two companies, Westinghouse got the contracts to build and" install the generators, and General Electric got to design and build the Electricity Distribution System; both Westinghouse and General Electric are ultimately owned by the railroads.
After Tesla's great success with the invention of A.C. current, he started creating inventions that would allow the people of earth to have a cheaper supply of electricity. Unfortunately the people that were using his original invention of alternating current were getting rich off of the construction of hundreds of power distribution plants through the sell of electricity to the public. They did not want anyone to have cheap or no cost power; the civilization did not matter -just money, power and greed.
American students have been deprived of any opportunity to learn about Tesla, because his name is seldom mentioned in school books, even science textbooks, in the United States, the nation which Tesla had honored with his citizenship, and the point from which his great inventions had rayed forth like light form a central sun.
The people in control do not want his advanced inventions used in this country because they would allow people to have to many things cheap or free. And that would mean low or no profit for them. In Richmond, Virginia around 1910 there was a man by the man of William F. Trigg. Trigg had a contract with the Alabama Fuel and Iron Company of New York to supply the steel for its new project.
A division of this company moved to Pascagoula Mississippi to become the Electric Boat Company, this company was to develop some of the revolutionary technology given to Trigg while working with Nikola Tesla; building and testing of the new technology was started with the "Submarine" and "Submarine Destroyers"; this company is now known as General Dynamics, it is also related back to the Charleston, Cincinnati and Chicago Railroad Company.
With the creation of the Electric Boat Company some of the stocks of the company were sold to England, France, and German and then came World War I so that their new invention could be field tested and all sides could profit from this new technology.
When I first became involved with the heir to the Payseur dynasty. I started getting bits and pieces of information about everything from railroads to implants used on high level people.
For many months I was almost in a numb state because I knew that I had found the missing link that everyone that is looking for - the nebulous "they"; I had found it, and all the pieces that put the puzzle together to a great degree.
I had known some things about Tesla, but the part that he played in the Philadelphia Experiment was the one that intrigued me the most because of what happened with the battleship the " U.S.S. Eldridge" becoming invisible and being transported from one place to the other and reappearing.
One day on one of my bone-picking expeditions with this man, he started taking about the government being able to take a rabbit and make it go invisible and be moved. I knew then that he knew a lot more about the things that intrigued me. So I started questioning him about the Unified Fields that Einstein perfected and the government was now working with.
I had just found out that the heirs grandfather, L.C. Payseur, had been the one backing Tesla in the Great Falls Experiment. Everything suddenly clicked with all of the information that this man had been feeding me for months at this time
I started firing questions at him left and right and all of a sudden this man just stopped answering me. The only thing he would say is "I can't tell you."
We later found out that he does this when you get "too close to home." I was really mad; I knew I was on top of getting the answers about much more than the secrets about the Philadelphia Experiment.
This man was telling me that he didn't know what the Philadelphia Experiment was, and I just couldn't believe it, with all of the government connections he and his father both had. So I dropped the search that sunny day and jumped into the Tennessee River for a swim to cool off!!
That night after we got home from the river this man calls me, being his usual cheerful self. He says "I thought about the things you asked me today and now I have answers for you." He went on to tell me that the proper name for the experiment in question was "Project Rainbow" and that his father had been involved in it, at that time he was the head of what is now called the CIA.
He went in to great detail to tell me how it was operated, and more. This family has been the backbone of many astonishing inventions and technology. I asked if the Payseur family, because it was the financial backer of Tesla, had inherited the plans to his dreams and plans of untold technology; I have never gotten the answer to this question just a dumb and knowing look.
