Jim Allison ranks Rufus King asrepparttar 143482 fifth most important founding father ofrepparttar 143483 United States but he notes Jefferson was away in France as Ambassador during many ofrepparttar 143484 events he deemed of import in his ranking system. Jefferson ranked only 19th as a result and number one on his list is James Madison who I think was actually Jefferson’s underling or student as was James Monroe. The behindrepparttar 143485 scenes power and deals made with international financiers includingrepparttar 143486 King of England and his family are whererepparttar 143487 real power existed. (10) That family had a relationship with Nathan Rothschild that made an enormous fortune forrepparttar 143488 Rothschilds atrepparttar 143489 occasion of The Battle of Waterloo. It is freely admitted that this sly deed was in factrepparttar 143490 source of a great fortune forrepparttar 143491 Rothschilds in their official family biographies and you can be sure that many people including Lords and Ladies galore lost their shirts just like when Old Joe Kennedy had no money inrepparttar 143492 market onrepparttar 143493 day ofrepparttar 143494 crash. Here is something about Monroe which illustratesrepparttar 143495 nature ofrepparttar 143496 deals and deal-makers and who they were in touch with including England and Spain.

“Onrepparttar 143497 18th of April Monroe was further commissioned asrepparttar 143498 regular minister to Great Britain. He joined Livingston in Paris onrepparttar 143499 12th of April, afterrepparttar 143500 negotiations were well under way; andrepparttar 143501 two ministers, on finding Napoleon willing to dispose ofrepparttar 143502 entire province of Louisiana, decided to exceed their instructions and effect its purchase. Accordingly, onrepparttar 143503 30th of April, they signed a treaty and two conventions, whereby France sold Louisiana torepparttar 143504 United States. In July 1803 Monroe left Paris and entered upon his duties in London; and inrepparttar 143505 autumn of 1804 he proceeded to Madrid to assist Pinckney in his efforts to securerepparttar 143506 definition ofrepparttar 143507 Louisiana boundaries andrepparttar 143508 acquisition ofrepparttar 143509 Floridas.” (11)
