Who was he: Nelson Aldrich was a prominent businessman and Republican leader in the Senate where he served from 1881 to 1911. Aldrich was often described in a glowing manner by the mainstream media establishment as the "General Manager of the Nation" – primarily because he dominated monetary policies and all tariff legislation. However, in hindsight, Nelson Aldrich was just another agent advancing the agenda of the Anglo-American power elite.
Aldrich promoted high tariffs, which protected the northeastern establishment's manufacturing interests. Aldrich's protectionist actions made foreign imports expensive and enabled US corporations to raise prices on American consumers. He and his cronies purposefully denied Americans the benefit of foreign competition, which in a free market would have naturally kept prices lower.
Workers and famers needing these tariff-inflated goods were forced to pay the higher prices. More importantly for Americans today, Aldrich helped to establish both the hated income tax as well as the manipulative Federal Reserve. Aldrich's daughter, Abbey, married John D. Rockefeller, Jr.; Aldrich's grandson is Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller.
Background: Nelson Wilmarth Aldrich was born on November 6, 1841 in Foster, Rhode Island. Aldrich was first schooled at East Greenwich Academy and then went to work for the leading wholesale grocery operation in the state. Aldrich married into a very wealthy family and after serving as president of the Providence City Council and then Speaker of the Rhode Island House, the GOP establishment paved the way for his election to the House of Representatives in 1878. Subsequently, Aldrich was elected to serve in the US Senate in 1881.
Once in the Senate, Aldrich began to advance the "concentration of power agenda," as demanded by the powerful Anglo-American axis of wealthy families – who were always working to advance their power, control and wealth. First, in reaction to a pre-planned market crash manipulated by J.P. Morgan, later called the Panic of 1907, Aldrich offered legislation to establish the National Monetary Commission. The Aldrich-Vreeland Act that passed in 1908 issued 30 reports that called for the creation of the Federal Reserve System. This was followed in 1909 by an even worse attack on private wealth, when Aldrich introduced a constitutional amendment to establish the income tax.
Nelson Aldrich did more than any other power elite controlled US politician to destroy the original decentralized republic and subvert the US Constitution. Aldrich was directly responsible for implementing a banker elite controlled fascist empire, which America still has today. This march toward global governance rule over the entire world continues today with the Rockefeller-inspired CFR and other organizations advancing a one-world view of the future.
Nelson Alridch died on April 16th, 1915, just after another war started by elite interests began to sweep across Europe. Today, Americans still suffer under the Federal Reserve and the IRS – both created to steal and manipulate people's wealth for the benefit of a few powerful banking families and their financial institutions.
