Who Offed Lincoln?

This is some interesting stuff you won’t catch on the nightly news:

ABRAHAM LINCOLN’S ASSASSINATION website describing the conspiracy of international bankers:

“This theory is that Abraham Lincoln was killed as a result of his monetary policies. John Wilkes Booth would be seen as a ‘hired gun.’ In its simplest terms, the theory is that Lincoln needed money to finance the Civil War. He was offered loans at high interest rates by bankers in Europe led by the Rothschilds. Rather than accept the loans, Lincoln found other means to fund the war effort. More importantly, the British bankers opposed Lincoln’s protectionist policies. Some Englishmen in the 1860’s believed that “British free trade, industrial monopoly and human slavery travel together.” Lincoln’s policies after the Civil War would have destroyed the Rothschilds’ commodity speculations. After the war, Lincoln planned a mild Reconstruction policy which would have enabled a resumption of agriculture production. The Rothschilds were betting the other way on high prices caused by a tough Reconstruction policy toward the South. Lincoln was viewed as a threat to the established order of things, and he was assassinated as a result. The goal was to weaken the United States so the Rothschilds could takeover its economy. An article titled “The Rothschilds’ International Plot to Kill Lincoln” was published October 29, 1976, in New Solidarity.”

    While the R’s financed wars for many centuries I doubt very seriously there is any validity and I reach that conclusion without reading the book for several reasons. One of the less than noble reasons Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation was to embarrass British government and population out of trade with the South because it would be supporting slavery, an institution dissolved several decades before the Civil War throughout the Empire. Incidentally it did not declare the slaves free in the 4 borders states so the real matter of surprise is that Mr Lincoln was not so altruistic. Lincoln was not an abolitionist in my opinion. Secret US policy was to ignore the British capture and/or sinking of slave ships ordinarily an act of war. Britain quickly turned to India/Egypt for cotton supply which was cheaper with no geopolitical ramifications.

    This is pushing the envelope of conspiricy theories very hard. Carl has a point, Lincoln had been an enthusiatic Whig, while he was against slavery he rarely said anything that could be construed as favoring forced emancipation. In truth, most of the Early Republican presidents had been Whigs, believing in high tariffs, industrialization and a statist program, pretty much the policies of Alexander Hamilton. They were more Mercantilist than Britain at this point. The reason being there was a nascent industrial power to develop, and the money to do it had to be found somewhere.

    While this theory might not be 100 percent accurate, there are too many kwinky dinks. Ya got the same bankers/globalist now, as you had then(Same families) Andrew Jackson made claims that some of these folks were trying to kill him.
    The Confederate States had the constituion on their side. My belief is there are forces of evil that are involved in, and are the cause of, many of our nation’s problems.
