BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES, GREAT BRITAIN, IRAQ REGARDING THE RIGHTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF ITS NATIONALS IN IRAQ, SIGNED JANUARY 9, 1930
Turning to the draft Protocol you will see that, apart from altering “American” into “of the United States of America” in the second, and textural alterations in the third articles . . ..
How many times have words taken on a different meaning in this country's laws when it suits the Congress's or State legislature's fancy? Everything in law is dictated by words of art.
The United States and its nationals shall have and enjoy all the rights and benefits secured under the terms of the aforesaid decisions and treaties to members of the League of Nations and their Nationals, notwithstanding the fact that the United States is not a member of the League of Nations.
Note the singular word "its" rather than "their" nationals. This is proof that United States is not the American states because they cannot get involved in treaties and foreign affairs as it is forbidden by their Constitution.
GOOD OFFICES TO AMERICAN FIRMS INTERESTED IN ENTERING THE IRAQ OIL FIELDS
890g.6363 Getty Oil Company, George F./6
The Acting Secretary of State to the Consul at Bagdad (Sloan)
Sir: The Department has received and read with interest your dispatches No. 11 of January 25 and Nos. 16 and 19 of February 2, 1930, concerning developments in the petroleum situation in Iraq, with especial reference to the recent visit of Mr. H. M. Macomber on behalf of George F. Getty, Incorporated.
In order that you may understand the attitude of this Government with reference to the entrance of American petroleum companies into the Iraq field, there are set forth below certain of the considerations that the Department has had in mind in connection with this question.
As you are aware, extensive correspondence on this subject was exchanged between the Department and the British Foreign Office during 1920 and 1921. The viewpoint of the United States with respect to the economic development of Iraq and other similar territories was set forth originally in a note handed to the British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs by the American Ambassador in London on May 12, 1920
It seems that the United States is going outside the bounds of the Constitution, as they always do, in order to control as much of the world as they can, using big business to help accomplish this task. No longer does Article 1, Section 8, para 1, apply to only America but to the rest of the countries the United States deals with. This is what they call the general welfare of the United States? It does not mean the general welfare of the people of America. As the founding fathers stated that the United States should stay out of Foreign affairs, you can see they don't and loan millions of dollars to all countries through the Finance corporations and the banks which get the backing for the loans on the taxes laid on the American people's backs when people use the debt obligations called Federal Reserve Notes which already have a priority lien on them before you even get them. This is what the IRS collects and returns to the federal Reserve Banks to the Credit of the United States. Not one dime goes into the U.S. Treasury as it was abolished in 1921, remember, by the Act of 1920. The Private Federal Reserve is only the fiscal agent of the United States. Sweet deal to steal your money so the banks can control the other countries also because the borrower is beholden to the lender.
