Shady Doings of Alexander Hamilton

Shady_Hamilton

Robert Morris, distinguished financier of the American Revolution, owned an extensive tract of land in what is now West Virginia. “This tract had been granted by Virginia on an order of survey, June 12, 1770, to Albert Gallatin (later United States Secretary of Treasury).” Gallatin somehow assigned the tract of several hundred thousand acres to Morris on February 10, 1786. “Nine years later, Morris assigned it to his partner, Thomas Willing. This Willing was the first president of the Bank of the United States, in the establishment of which monopoly Robert Morris and Alexander Hamilton were the prime movers.” [1]

Shady Hamilton bobs and weaves, making jabs then confusing opponents with “cheese on the moon” arguments. Isn’t it about time we erase him from the $10-dollar “Federal Reserve” note, and replace Hamilton with Harriet Tubman? This plan is revealed in an article by Bruce Kauffmann, who says however, “Don’t mess with Alexander Hamilton.” [2] (For background on “cheese on the moon”, see: “Confusion of Tongues” About National Bank, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, August 30, 2015.)

Instead of messing with Alexander Hamilton, Kauffmann says to mess with Andrew Jackson, a great hero of the war against central bankers! Elsewhere, Thomas Jefferson, another enemy of central bankers, languishes on the $2 “Federal Reserve” note. This two-dollar bill is still in circulation, despite rumors to the contrary. Until about 1963, the two-dollar bill was the last to be still redeemable in silver. It was also a last holdout in being a United States Note, instead of a “Federal Reserve” note, until around January 1971. That year, 1971, was also when President Richard Nixon closed the “gold window”, thereby unpegging the dollar from any reality. It became the postmodern dollar and we coincidentally began to see postmodernism advanced in general, with skeptical interpretations of culture, literature, art, philosophy, history, economics, architecture, fiction, and literary criticism. Like the dollar, the truth became “relative” (except for “conspiracy theories” which are decidedly not relative and which all must avoid.) [3] [4] [5]

So Thomas Jefferson lives (on the two-dollar bill), despite rumors to the contrary. He was the one who said, “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered… I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies… The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.” [6]

But Alexander Hamilton disagreed and worked in favor of the First Bank of the United States, privately owned like the “Federal Reserve.” Hence it is worthwhile to investigate the shady doings of Alexander Hamilton. He was “breathing together” (conspiring) with the likes of Robert Morris, Albert Gallatin, and Thomas Willing (first president of the Bank of the United States). Hamilton was also “breathing together” (conspiring) with John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. “Between Alexander Hamilton, John Jay and Robert Morris, were the closest business relations, and even more intimate connections between Jay and Hamilton.” [1]

William Livingston, father-in-law of John Jay, was involved in a notorious scandal: the New York Genesee Land Company. In 1787 the Company obtained 999-year leases to nearly all the lands of the Six Nations of the Indians, a.k.a. the Iroquois Confederacy. “When the circumstances of this transaction became known to the white public, and its provisions clear to the Indians themselves, a tremendous uproar resulted.” [1]

Alexander Hamilton was married to Elizabeth Schuyler, daughter of General Philip Schuyler. The “original Schuyler” (possibly one Peter Schuyler) had acquired great estates by bribing Governor Benjamin Fletcher. [1] Fletcher, colonial governor of New York from 1692 to 1697, favored piracy as a leading economic development tool in New York City’s competition with the ports of Boston and Philadelphia. New York City accordingly became a safe place for pirates. They were the “Sea Robbers of New York”, illustrated by Harper’s Magazine in November 1894 (see image hopefully above). [7] And thus were True Pirate Tales greatly assisted. (See: A True Pirates Tale, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, July 4, 2014.)

Aye, matey, them were stirring times, with swag aplenty to be had! Besides the extraordinarily close business relationship between Robert Morris, John Jay, and Alexander Hamilton, Morris also had close business relationships with Daniel Carroll regarding vast speculations in City of Washington real estate when the site of the nation’s Capitol was selected. [1]

The firm of Willinck and Van Strapporst were big bankers at Amsterdam; as the “bankers for the United States” in Holland, “they did a lucrative business making profits out of the Revolution, and later from the United States, by grace of Robert Morris, and by that of Alexander Hamilton, as Secretary of the Treasury.” [1]

Alexander Hamilton was attorney for Le Roy and Bayard, New York shippers (descendants of the pirates). Hamilton’s patron, Nicholas Cruger, received a letter from John Jay, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, in 1794. A “gentleman in Holland” had sent John Jay a fortune-making plan. Jay sent the “golden” plan to Cruger, and suggested that Le Roy and Bayard participate. It all had to do with the “Holland Company”, the securing of fraudulent legislation and the acquisition of vast landed areas in Pennsylvania. The fraudulent pretensions were later validated “by a remarkable decision of the Supreme Court of the United States.” [1]

So you can see there were some shady doings involving Alexander Hamilton, who also promoted the privately owned Bank of the United States. Later, in the early 1830s, President Andrew Jackson of the twenty-dollar “Federal Reserve” note waged an heroic battle against the Bank of the United States.
