All these quotations have one thing in common – they’re all “too good to be true”. They unmistakingly seem too perfect, prompting me, and many before, to look into the origins of these frequently-quoted conspiracy misquotes.

The truth is on our side, there is no need for us to make stuff up or to spread disinformation. This only gives them ammunition to dismiss you. Keep it real. icon wink Top Ten Conspiracy Misquotes

No.1 JFK plans to reveal a secret plot to enslave all Americans days before his death

jfk plot enslave every man Top Ten Conspiracy Misquotes

“There’s a plot in this country to enslave every man, woman, and child. Before I leave this high and noble office, I intend to expose this plot.”

~President John F. Kennedy 7 days before his assassination


‘F’ FAKE – This is by far the most popular quote on this list. The source is vague and usually only includes the ominous-sounding “7 days before his assassination”. Kennedy made two speeches on November 15th, 1963.

Kennedy first spoke to the delegates of the 5th Constitutional Convention of the AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations) at 11 in the morning at the Americana Hotel in New York City. (Read Remarks in New York City at the AFL-CIO Convention transcript.)

No plots. No enslavement.

He then spoke at the 7th National Catholic Youth Organization Convention at 11:40 am in he grand ballroom of the New York Hilton Hotel. (Read Remarks in New York City at the National Convention of the Catholic Youth Organization transcripts or watch it on Youtube here.)

Again, no plots. No enslavement of men, women, or children.

Common Sense: If Kennedy had indeed planned to reveal the existence of such plot, wouldn’t his remarks have caused grave concern at the time? Why didn’t any journalist report it? Doesn’t anyone listen to the President of the United States?


No.2 Kissinger on controlling oil, food and people

kissinger control oil people Top Ten Conspiracy Misquotes

“Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.”

~Henry Kissinger (no source given)

‘F’ FAKE – Probably the easiest cospiracy quotation to debunk on this list since the quote originates from The Daily Squib, a satirical news site (eg The Onion, Fox News).

The article is titled Henry Kissinger: If You Can’t Hear the Drums of War You Must Be Deaf, also a major giveaway.


No.3 Jefferson on banking, corporations and waking up homeless

Jefferson corporation Top Ten Conspiracy Misquotes

“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 the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

~Thomas Jefferson, 1802

Variation:

“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.”

‘F’ FAKE – The quote “has not been found anywhere in Thomas Jefferson’s writings…”

The editor of Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations Requested from the Congressional Research Service notes that the word “inflation” was not in any dictionaries until 1864 and “deflation”, not until 1920.

Historians generally agree that it is unlikely that Jefferson was able to defy the space-time continuum.


No.4 Albert Pike and the 3 World wars

Pike WWIII Top Ten Conspiracy Misquotes

The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam and political Zionism mutually destroy each other.

~Albert Pike

‘F’ FAKE – The passage supposedly written by Masonic bigwig Albert Pike to Italian revolutionary Giuseppe Mazzini is in reality an outright fraud by conspiracy author William Guy Carr. He writes:

World War Three is to be fomented by using the differences the agentur of the Illuminati stir up between Political Zionists and the leaders of the Moslem world. The war is to be directed in such a manner that Islam (the Arab World including Mohammedanism) and Political Zionism (including the State of Israel) will destroy themselves while at the same time the remaining nations, once more divided against each other on this issue, will be forced to fight themselves into a state of complete exhaustion physically, mentally, spiritually and economically.

~Pawns in the Game

After diligent detective work, researcher Terry Melanson discovered that Carr’s text was based on a letter published by admitted hoaxer Leo Taxil under the name Dr. Bataille in his The Devil in the 19th-Century.

Melanson also discovered that knowingly using fraudulent material wasn’t enough for Carr, he also added the prediction of the three world wars to Taxil’s original text. (read both letters here)


No.5 Woodrow is an Unhappy man

wilson unhappy man Top Ten Conspiracy Misquotes

“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”

~Woodrow Wilson, 1919

‘F’ FAKE (mostly) – This quote is partly bogus, and partly an amalgamation of two quotes from Wilson’s book The New Freedom: A Call For the Emancipation of the Generous Energies of a People.

Let’s separate the quote into 4 sections:

“I am a most unhappy man.” – made up- bogus

“I have unwittingly ruined my country.” – made up- bogus

“A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men.”
Is from Chapter 8 – Monopoly, or Opportunity? of The New Freedom:

A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men who, even if their action be honest and intended for the public interest, are necessarily concentrated upon the great undertakings in which their own money is involved and who necessarily, by very reason of their own limitations, chill and check and destroy genuine economic freedom.”

While the next portion…

“We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”

is lifted from chapter 9 – Benevolence, or Justice?

we have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world—no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.

However, it’s important to note that Wilson published the book before the passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913. (the quote is usually dated 1919 to make it look more authentic) So again, it’s important to remember the space-time continuum.

Nevertheless, it is clear that Wilson was keenly aware of the existence and influence of the plutocrats.


No.6 Hitler, safe streets and Gun Registration

adolf hitler gun control Top Ten Conspiracy Misquotes

“This year will go down in history! For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration! Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!”

~Adolph Hitler, 1935

‘D’ DUBIOUS – This quote widely circulated by the National Rifle Association (NRA) and other gun enthusiasts is most likely bogus.

Following World War 1 and the signing of the Versailles Treaty, the German people were strictly forbidden from owning guns or ammunition. Failure to surrender weapons resulted in imprisonment. In 1928, the Weimar government passed the Law on Firearms and Ammunition relaxing gun control laws but instituting strict licensing regulations, ie gun registration.

It is unlikely that Hitler would’ve uttered the above quote in 1935 since gun registration laws were already in effect for 8 years and no new regulations had been passed.

However, in 1938 Hitler did pass his German Weapons Act which greatly relaxed gun registration laws and lowered age requirements for gun permits. The government then passed the Regulations Against Jews’ Possession of Weapons which forbids Jews from owning weapons of any kind.

In other words, despite the above quote being bogus, the NRA’s claim about Hitler wanting to disarm the conquered has merit. “To conquer a nation, you must first disarm its citizens.”, another quote often attributed to Hitler, is essentially paraphrasing a passage found in Hitler’s Table Talk. Just as the Germans had been forced to surrender their arms in 1919 following their defeat at WW1, Hitler knew that he had to disarm citizens of newly-conquered nations:

“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.”


No.7 Rockefeller’s on the verge of a New World Order

rockefeller major crisis Top Ten Conspiracy Misquotes

“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”

~David Rockefeller speaking at UN Business Conference, September 14, 1994

Variant:

This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long – We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.

‘F’ FAKE – The above quote is a rather badly paraphrased version of a speech given by Rockefeller at the Annual Ambassador’s Dinner held on September 14th, as cited, where the U.N. Business Council awarded him with a lifetime achievement award.

You can watch the entire conference on C-SPAN or watch just David’s speech on YouTube here. The relevant quotation is from 4:27 to 4:57. I’ve transcribed Rockefeller’s exact words here:

“But this persistent window… and this present window of opportunity during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built will not be here for…. open for too long. Already there are powerful forces at work that threaten to destroy all of our hopes and efforts to erect an enduring structure of global cooperation.”

Not remotely as juicy, I know… I confess that I myself have falling victim to this false quote and have included the misquote in both my Short History of the New World Order comic book and my NWO World Map. icon sad Top Ten Conspiracy Misquotes


No.8 Rothschild Puppets and the Money supply

rothschild nathan british money supply Top Ten Conspiracy Misquotes

“I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.”

~Nathan Rothschild

A similar quotation is attributed to Nathan’s father and founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty, Mayer Rothschild:

rothschild mayer money supply Top Ten Conspiracy Misquotes

“Give me control of a Nation’s money supply, and I care not who makes its laws.”

~Mayer Amschel Rothschild

‘D’ DUBIOUS ORIGINS – Both quotes are always provided without citations and without any context which makes their origins difficult to trace. Unlike the Jefferson quote (conspiracy misquote #3) there are no anachronisms used and the quotes certainly echo the mindset of the founding members of the House of Rothschild.

Conspiracy author and researcher G. Edward Griffin attempted to find the origin of the Mayer quote in his 1994 book The Creature from Jekyll Island. He was able to track the quote’s first usage to a speech made by Senator Robert Owen, the sponsor of the infamous Glass-Owen Federal Reserve Act of 1913. After providing the quote on p. 218, he writes in the footnotes:

This quotation could not be verified in a primary reference work. However, when one considers the life and accomplishments of the elder Rothschild, there can be little doubt that this sentiment was, in fact, his outlook and guiding principle.”

~G. Edward Griffin, The Creature from Jekyll Island

Unfortunately, not everyone is as diligent as Mr. Griffin.


No.9 United Nations Pledge to Satan

sprangler lucifer united nations Top Ten Conspiracy Misquotes

“No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation.”

~David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations

Faked CitationDavid Spangler is a leading figure of the New Age movement. The post of “Director of Planetary Initiative” doesn’t exist at the United Nations.

Spangler was director for Planetary Citizen, of which Planetary Initiative for the World We Choose was an offshoot. Planetary Citizens was funded by the Kettering Foundation, an NGO associated with the UN Department of Public Information.

I’ve labeled this quote as fake because of the implied links to the United Nations and its directorship in order to make the quote appear more consequential.

The significance of this quote is contingent on David Spangler having any importance or influence within the United Nations. He doesn’t. It certainly cannot be used to claim that UN representatives must pledge their souls to Satan!

The quote appears to be a distortion of a passage from his Reflections on the Christ lecture series:

Lucifer comes to give us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it, then he is free and we are free. That is the Luciferic Initiation. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age.

So ya, New Agers will say pretty much anything.


No.10 Kissinger, UN troops in Los Angeles and world government

kissinger UN troops Top Ten Conspiracy Misquotes

“Today, America would be outraged if UN troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all people of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the world government.”

~Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France, 1991

‘D’ DUBIOUS ORIGINS – Firstly, the Bilderberg meeting wasn’t held in Evian in 1991, it took place in Germany. Bilderbergers met in France the following year.

Secondly, remarks from the meetings are never recorded. The whole idea of the Bilderberg meetings is for the members of the elite class to speak off-the-record. If their comments were constantly reported, they would stop attending.

Indecently, it was also at the 1991 Bilderberg meeting that David Rockefeller allegedly said the following:
rockefeller thanks new york times Top Ten Conspiracy Misquotes

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years……It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”

~David Rockefeller
Source Bilderberg Meeting, Baden-Baden, Germany June 1991

It’s also at that meeting where Bill Clinton was allegedly chosen as the next US President and where Margaret Thatcher was excommunicated by her elite handlers, but I digress…

Michael Parenti remarked after reading the above quote during his Understanding Deep Politics lecture, that it is best to “strike” such quotations in order to not “get played with and misled”.

Case in point, the same quote is cited as being spoken by Rockefeller at a meeting of the Trilateral Comission in June, 1991.

These quotations are certainly interesting and seem to express the elite mindset elegantly but the “individual rights will be willingly relinquished” part from the Kissinger quote and the “supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination” from Rockefeller are simply “too good to be true” and should be taken with a grain of salt.

I’ve labeled both quotes as “dubious”.

However, confirmation of these two quotes wouldn’t surprise me in the least. I doubt that transcripts of the 1991 (or 1992) of the Bilderberg (or Trilateral) meeting are forthcoming.

Note: Question Everything! When you first encounter a quote question its authenticity and look into it. Some of these are pretty ridiculous!
