The Rothschilds and the Vatican
By Fritz S. Meier

Early in the 19th century [1800s] the Pope came to the Rothschilds to borrow money. The Rothschilds were very friendly with the Pope, causing one journalist to sarcasticly say "Rothschild has kissed the hand of the Pope...Order has at last been re-established. "The Rothschilds in fact over time were entrusted with the bulk of the Vatican's wealth. The Jewish Ency., Vol. 2, p.497 states, "It is a somewhat curious sequel to the attempt to set up a Catholic competitor to the Rothschilds that at the present time (1905) the latter are the guardians of the papal treasure." Researcher Eustice Mullins writes that the Rothschilds took over all the financial operations of the worldwide Catholic Church in 1823.
Today the large banking and financial business of the Catholic Church is an extensive system interlocked with the Rothschilds and the rest of the International Banking system. Viz the Vatican's Bank of America in the United States which recently acquired the Wall Street investment giant Merrill Lynch. The great wealth of the Russian Czars was entrusted at that time to the Rothschilds, $35 million with the Rothschild's Bank of England, and $80 million in the Rothschild's Paris bank. The Rothschilds then financed the Russian Revolution which confiscated those fortunes plus vast portions of the Orthodox Church's wealth. They were able to prevent (due to their power) the legitimate heirs of the Czars fortune to withdraw a penny of the then mere millions deposited in a variety of their banks. The Mountbattans, who are related to the Rothschilds, led the court battles to prevent the claimants from withdrawing any of the fortune. In other words, the money they invested in the Russian Revolution, was not only paid back directly by the Bolshevists in millions of dollars of gold, but by grabbing the huge deposits of the Czars' wealth, the Rothschilds gained what has now grown (been 'leveraged') into tens of Trillions.
Until this year Rothschild's Bank of America was the largest bank in the United States. It has been surpassed now by JP Morgan Chase, another Rothschild bank, which in March was given ownership of its rival Wall Street investment house Bear Stearns, all at US taxpayer expense. Then, last week, it was given ownership of the failing Washington Mutual bank, that nation's largest Savings and Loan.
Lehman Brothers, the other financial house collapse which shook the world, is apparently to be acquired by Rothschild Barclays PLC Bank in London, under the direction of the US bankruptcy court.
The total assets of the Rothschild financial empire now surpass 165 Trillion Pounds Sterling.
