The short history is summed up by one line paraphrased from Wikipedia:
The Commonwealth of the Philippines was acquired from Spain by the Territorial United States Government as a result of the Spanish American War, the results of which were settled by the 1898 Treaty of Paris and Treaty of Versailles.
Forty-eight years later, the Territorial United States relinquished its claims on the Philippines and Philippine Independence (from the Territorial United States) was celebrated July 4, 1946 as a result of the Treaty of Manila. Our separate claims against the Philippine Islands remain.
The Territorial United States used our money and our men and abused our delegated powers to engage in the Spanish American War in the first place, and having done the deed and secured the conquest in our names, had no power to relinquish our separate interest in the land and soil of the Philippine Islands and still owe us the costs related to the Spanish American War and the cost of defending and retaking the Philippines during World War II.
In between these two debacles the British Territorial United States Government, the Government of Westminster, the Scottish Government, and the British Crown used the United States Navy to transport 186,000 metric tons of American gold for "safekeeping" offshore in the natural caves of the Philippines and Indonesia without telling the American Public a word about it.
When the commercial corporation doing business as "the" United States of America, Inc. went bankrupt in 1933, the Territorial United States Congress passed legislation in 1934 providing for an "independent government for the Philippines". This action was undertaken for one reason and one reason only ----- so that this new independent government could act as a Trustee for all the American gold already transported to the Philippines.
This is how Ferdinand Marcos and other Filipino leaders wound up in control of our gold resources and making decisions "for" us about how our precious metal assets are used.
In the course of World War II the Japanese discovered the gold stored in the Philippines and began transporting it wherever they needed gold. They shipped it on planes and Japanese naval transports all around the Pacific Rim and as far away as the Mideast and India. This gold had to be recovered, a job that took over twenty-five years, and resulted in the recoupment of 154,000 metric tons of the original 186,000 tons.
Obviously, 22,000 tons of American gold is still missing and it continues to pop up in unexpected places, including shipwrecks.
Gold extracted from the Americas has unique metallurgic properties so we can readily determine its origins. As a result, we can tell that "Yamashita's gold" isn't really Yamashita's.
When Ferdinand Marcos and John F. Kennedy met and negotiated for the return of the remaining recovered 154,000 tons of American gold it was a historic moment, and the beginning of the end of the Federal Reserve System. Everyone worth spitting on drew a big sigh of relief. We would be returning to lawful money, settling debts, and freedom.
The only "Funny Money" needed would be used where it should be used, as commercial script, in the realm of commerce.
Instead, those who benefited from the Blood Money and usury of the Federal Reserve System conspired to kill President Kennedy and continue their vicious assault against common sense and decency. They continued their bankruptcy and impersonation frauds against the American people, and continued to manipulate the commodity markets on a worldwide basis. They launched the "Petrodollar" and made the oil companies King for a Day.
They successfully stymied scientific and social progress throughout most of the world for the next six decades. They unleashed a period of unequaled corporate lawlessness and violence. They misdirected and misused the military forces of this country to conduct mercenary activities on a worldwide scale. They pillaged and plundered the American people under color of law. They turned our Patent Office into a crime scene. They used our healthcare system as a weapon and our airwaves and media as a licensed propaganda machine.
And now, as silently as it began, this lawlessness is coming to an end.
We need to talk to the people of the Philippines, who got stuck in the middle of all this intrigue. We need to say the words that heal. We need to find our ways forward. But most of all, we need to talk to each other, face to face, with no middlemen grinding their axes in between.
