He wrote a speech that was converted to a book, called War is a Racket
Not only that but several books were written about him, about how he uncovered a plot to turn the current president of that time (Roosevelt) into a ribbon cutter with an executive position behind him that made all the decisions.* “The reason for the plot was the election of President Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR), a member of the same ruling circles as the cabal itself. March 5, 1933–the day after his inauguration–FDR embargoed the export of gold and declared a national bank holiday. He told the “Hundred Days Congress” to enact a New Deal into law. In striving against the Depression, FDR awakened hope in the American people, but he appalled bankers and industrialists. Who would pay for this New Deal? The rich feared changes to the US system of finance, a rise in taxes, possibly even (Heaven forbid!) socialism.”* (quoted from here)
Major General Smedley Butler said his time served was only used to benefit the bankers, to wrench dollars out of American blood, war for profit. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War. 
This leads to the most current wars… Iraq, Libya, Syria All wanted to end the use of the petrol dollar. Which is what is keeping the dollar from inflating as much as it should.
The role of the US is to be the bankers watch dog, to war any country that threatens the system. To collect debts, and to make countries banker friendly.
Whenever the banks assets are in trouble, the US will borrow and war itself into debt and destruction even when the cost is far higher than the investments in those areas. Treaties are used to leverage it’s power and laws over other countries, while they focus on controlling our news and information.
Beyond the military itself, they use covert operations and secrete government institutions as well as known intelligence agencies to control the narrative online and in the news.
There is endless propaganda… (jimmy dore on time’s editor in favor of propaganda)
The consolidation of MSM into 6 mega-corporations is to benefit this system.
Some documentaries about this subject:
And on JRE Amber Lyon Talks about her experience in MSM, being silenced and controlled.
Another appalling aspect is that we don’t have control over our elections or information relating to them.
So why do Banks HATE crypto?
Bitcoin pre-segwit cannot be manipulated like Fiat currency.
They need control over interest rates and the currency to “Make men willing to make sacrifices” Which is done by lending and withdrawing at certain times and places, and taking advantages of scarcities of money artfully.

In 2005 Citigroup called the west the three great plutocracies (canada, us, uk) In a leaked Memo found here PDF
You see, there are two teams on the field of life. Those who want external control, and those who want internal control.
If you have sound money, and a government that represents you, then they don’t have control of you. So they attack you physically, mentally, and financially in order to overpower you. They control thought by manipulating the news we see and education we receive. They control the mind with chemicals and destroy the mind with the food supply. Chemical-Agro Companies (Monsanto/Bayer) want to patent seeds so that we cannot grow our own food. A great documentary about that aspect is The world according to Monsanto
My favorite video that encapsulates External control through debt is a seminar by Don Fletcher in 1991 at USC
They also control the medical system, and withhold potential cures/alternative treatments for Cancer. Here they block Burzynski from using anti-neoplastons as a treatment (similar to drugs that turn off cancerous genes) even with successful FDA trials.
Cancer is serious business A book about the subject that I recommend is “Racketeering in Medicine”
The best source I’ve found on the latest information on health and medicine is Dr. Rhonda Patrick’s YT Channel “found my fitness”
There is far more information out there and, several dozen more documentaries I would suggest, but this will get you started…
