First elected in 1828 during a Saturn/Uranus opposition (as was Barack Obama Nov 2008 and the opposition is ongoing), Andrew Jackson won the presidency as a rough war hero who was a man of the people...a democrat, we may say. The native peoples got a raw deal from him as he sought to expand America into the West and this may be the biggest stain upon his presidency.
My Indian heritage has never been happy about this facet of his leadership, for being an American is a paradoxical thing. In his book,The Secret History of the West, author Nicholas Hagger notes the tall, red-haired Andrew Jackson as "the consolidator of the American Revolution." The book includes much history of Jackson's exploits.
And the US Constitution ignored the American Indians entirely even though the document and our Bill of Rights as 'freedom documents' both owe huge debts of gratitude to the Iroquois Confederacy for what we think of as our Founding Fathers' mental brilliance. Greek precepts are apparent, Weishaupt's Illuminati, and Freemason input are in evidence, yes, but the Iroquoi Nation was on the continent bringing peace and democratic governance before we arrived, hello!
In fact, US natal Sun's Sabian Symbol for '14 Cancer' is: "A Very Old Man Facing a Vast Dark Space to the Northeast"...Iroquoi territory was in the northeast, 'very old man' is a wisdom figure.
Back to Bossy Bankers in Government:
Jackson entered the Oval Office with the intent of reforming the Second Bank which he thought had too much control of our national government in an unconstitutional manner (and he was right - look at the high-handed Federal Banking System now.)
Here's the text of Jackson's first Inaugural Address of March 4, 1829, worth a review considering today's manufactured 'financial crisis.'
Check out it out: banks were taking great amounts of public monies then too.
And if you follow one link here today, let it be Pres. Jackson's Veto Message to the Senate of July 10, 1832 when he nixed the bill "to modify and continue" the act entitled 'An act to incorporate the subscribers to the Bank of the United States' which was presented to him on July 4, 1832.
He was not pleased. Congress had ignored his concerns and the presentiments he voiced in his first term, so he vetoed the bill in 1832 while again noting his objections.
One of the more well-known of his objections was the specter of bank stocks passing into foreign hands and what would then be America's 'condition' if we were to become involved in a war with that country. Yeah, well, the congressional horses left that barn a long time ago. Guess the speculators weren't concerned since their affections lay elsewhere than on American soil. And we're suffering from the results now.
Well, it's been one-hundred-seventy-six years since 1833 and here's the text of Jackson's second address of March 4, 1833, if you'd like to see how he got on and what he had to say about it.
And 2009's Score so far? American people: -0-, Banks: the whole enchilada.
