[Introductory comments from Henry Makow:]
Two abridged accounts of Chaim Salomon's life are posted below.
Reading between the lines, clearly he was the conduit for the Illuminati Jewish funds that financed the American Revolution.
All major revolutions (English, American, French
and Russian) were engineered by these bankers using as instrument
Freemasonry, a satanic cult based on the Jewish Cabala [also spelled Kabbalah].
Revolution was designed to sweep away the old order based on
God, and bring in a satanic world government where evil is good, sick
is healthy and falsehood is truth. Replacing God with Satan is the true meaning of "revolution," and the NWO.
These bankers created the US to advance this goal. This
explains why the majority of founders, Presidents and Congressmen
were (and are) Freemasons; and why Masonic symbolism is everywhere.
It also explains why, having served its purpose, the US is now
being undermined. During the current fiscal cliff crisis, the words of
Dr. James Wardner resonate clearly:
"I am here to tell you that the declining American standard of
living has been PLANNED from the beginning...at the highest levels of
American government -- a plan to fail, a plan to create insecurity and
uncertainty, a plan to make the American people serfs in the New
World Order!" THE PLANNED DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA (1993)
"Your churches will be used to teach the Jew's religion
and in less than two hundred years the whole nation will be working
for divine world government. That government that they believe to be
divine will be the British Empire. All religions will be permeated
with Judaism without even being noticed by the masses, and they will
all be under the invisible all-seeing eye of the Grand Architect of
Humanity is in the grip of a satanic cult. Most of our "leaders" belong. What possibly could go wrong?
In the pantheon of American Jewish heroes,
Haym Salomon (1740-1785) has attained legendary status. His life was
brief and tumultuous, but his impact on the American imagination was
The U.S. Postal Service issued a stamp hailing
Salomon as a "Financial Hero of the American Revolution." A monument
to Salomon, George Washington and Robert Morris graces East Wacker
Drive in Chicago and Beverly Hills, California, is home to an
organization called the American Jewish Patriots and Friends of Haym
However, Salomon's life was not all triumph. A
successful financier in the early 1780s, he died in 1785 leaving a
wife and four young children with debts larger than his estate. When
his son petitioned Congress to recover money he claimed his father was
owed by the government, various committees refused to recognize the
family's claims. In 1936, Congress did vote to erect a monument to
Salomon in the District of Columbia, but funds for the actual
construction were never appropriated.
Born in Lissa, Poland, in 1740, Salomon spent
several years moving around western Europe and England, developing
fluency in several languages that served him well for the remainder of
Reaching New York City in 1772, he swiftly
established himself as a successful merchant and dealer in foreign
securities. Striking up an acquaintance with Alexander MacDougall,
leader of the New York Sons of Liberty, Salomon became active in the patriot cause. [The Sons of Liberty were Freemasons, the folks that did the Boston tea Party, the operational arm of the Illuminati Jewish bankers.]
When war broke out in 1776, Salomon got a
contract to supply American troops in central New York. In 1777, he
married Rachel Franks, whose brother Isaac was a lieutenant colonel on
George Washington's staff. Their ketubah resides at the American
Jewish Historical Society.
In the wake of a fire that destroyed much of New
York City, British occupation forces arrested and imprisoned Salomon.
He gained release because the British hoped to use his language
skills to communicate with their German mercenaries.
Instead, Salomon covertly encouraged the
Hessians to desert. Arrested again in early 1778, Salomon had his
property confiscated. A drum-head court martial sentenced him to hang.
Salomon escaped probably with the help of other Sons of Liberty and fled penniless to Philadelphia. His wife and child joined him soon afterward.
In Philadelphia, Salomon resumed his brokerage business. The
French Minister appointed him paymaster general of the French forces
fighting for the American cause. The Dutch, and Spanish governments
also engaged him to sell the securities that supported their loans to
the Continental Congress.
In 1781, Congress established the Office of
Finance to save the United States from fiscal ruin. Salomon allied
himself with Superintendent of Finance William Morris and became one
of the most effective brokers of bills of exchange to meet
federal government expenses. Salomon also personally advanced funds to
members of the Continental Congress and other federal officers,
charging interest and commissions well below the market rates. James
Madison confessed that "I have for some time ... been a pensioner on
the favor of Haym Salomon, a Jew broker."
While supporting the national cause, Salomon
also played a prominent role in the Philadelphia and national Jewish
community affairs. He served as a member of he governing council of
Philadelphia's Congregation Mikveh Israel. He was treasurer of
Philadelphia's society for indigent travelers, and participated in the
nation's first known rabbinic court of arbitration. Salomon helped
lead the successful fight to repeal the test oath which barred Jews
and other non-Christians from holding public office in Pennsylvania.
He operated within the context of a society, and an age, that considered all Jews as Shylocks and money grubbers.
In 1784, writing as "A Jew Broker,' Salomon
protested charges that Jewish merchants were profiteering. Salomon
thought it unjust that such charges were "cast so indiscriminately on
the Jews of this city at large . . . for the faults of a few." His
impassioned defense of his fellow Jews brought him national
Within five years of his arrival in
Philadelphia, Salomon advanced from penniless fugitive to respected
businessman, philanthropist and defender of his people.
He risked his fortune, pledged his good name and
credit on behalf of the Revolution, and stood up for religious
liberty. Despite financial setbacks at the end of his life, Salomon's
name is forever linked to the idealism and success of the American
Revolution, and to the contributions Jews have made to the cause of

Haym Salomon (or Hayim Solomon) was born in 1740 in Leszno/Lissia, Poland. His father was a Rabbi in Poland, who originally came from Portugal.
Traveling Europe in the 1760s and early 1770s, Haym learned finance, business, and several languages.
He came to New York City about late 1772. In
NYC, Haym was a merchant and also had a brokerage firm and commission
He also became a member of the 'Liberty Boys'
and 'Sons of Liberty'. He arranged for arms to be shipped into the
colonies from the Dutch island of St. Eustatius, and caused a lot of
trouble for the British.
Haym had been imprisoned by the British while in
NYC (at the "Old Sugar House", a warehouse) as a spy in 1776 where he
later suffered from tuberculosis. Haym was pardoned and used to
translate German with the German soldiers for the British. He also
helped American prisoners escape from the British and encouraged
hundreds of German soldiers to leave the British service.
Haym married Rachel Franks in January 1777. His first child, Ezekiel, was born July 1778.
Out of prison, Haym continued supporting the
rebellion against England. Arrested again for his pro-rebel
activities, then tortured and sentenced to death by hanging by the
British in Aug. 11, 1778. His property was also taken by British. Haym
used his knowledge of German (he spoke eight languages) to convince
his Hessian jailer with a bribe of money to escape with him (or help
him escape) to Philadelphia, where he arrived penniless.
He escaped with his family back in NYC while he
followed Geo. Washington's Army and fled to Philadelphia, PA. Haym
joined with other Jews who had fled British control.
Haym established himself as a broker, selling
currency and bank notes at a discount. He made a good deal of money as
a broker, merchant and auctioneer from 1781 to 1784 - he was an
official broker in PA - converted bills of exchange and foreign
government notes (France & Holland), changing into spendable cash.
Often working out of the "London Coffee House" in Philadelphia, he
acted as a broker for the Office of Finance. Haym owned a black slave
named "Joe" who ran away in 1780.
He always managed to raise necessary funds, especially to fund supplies, food and equipment for the patriot soldiers.
Haym was known to give support money (interest-free loans) to
patriots in Phil., PA, like James Madison. Gen. George Washington knew
he could always count on Haym Salomon to secure money to keep the
Continental Army running.
Haym put 350,000 sterling pounds into
the Yorktown campaign led by George Washington. He had first used his
own fortune (600,000 sterling pounds) and when that ran out secured money from other Jewish communities. He was considered to be the financial hero of our American Revolution.
At the end of the war, 1783, a small portion of the money was repaid but most of it was never repaid.
