Cause of the Great Depression: \
The controlled media always cite the Smoot-Hawley Tariff as causing the depression. It did not! The Federal Reserve Banks did! Following a secret meeting in early May 1920 where the Comp. of the Currency was in attendance, there, the International Bankers running the Fed. raised the re-discount rate to small banks from 2% to 8% on 18 May, 1920.
They were advised that this move would destroy the small banks, the farmers and small businesses throughout the Midwest, where they began this attack. It was a planned and deceitful program and set the world into the Great Depression. They did not care where this corrupt move would lead, even after being so advised. The class A stockholders of the Federal Reserve System are limited to 8 banks, all international, all Jewish, and mostly European. It is one of the Best kept secrets of the century..Done so, because it is mandated within the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.
The Constitution directs that Only Congress can coin money. Yet these old members were duped into signing away these rights for a mess of Pottage, like Esau, signing away his birthright. Only now, Esau has achieved the Dominion as promised in Gen. 27:40, has shaken off his yoke, and is now aiming for World Dominion under the edicts of his Talmud! Esau is Edom!
England, and the Committee of 300, an interrelated group in London that has set money policy since the time of Oliver Cromwell, established the illegal Federal Reserve System in collaboration with the New York Bankers and corrupt Congressional allies, then demanded and got, the 16th and 17th Amendments to further cement their plans. The most destructive year ever for North America! Farms never did recover, and local small businesses became subordinate to the international banks and Multinational corporations.
Following this came the tragedy of the New Deal of Franklin Roosevelt, which cemented in the Federal Reserve System and his War powers Act which still Dominates Congress and the People.

EXCERPT FROM A LETTER WRITTEN BY A "WELL-KNOWN CONGRESSMAN"
(Appears on the opening page of T.W. Hughes book)
IT CAN Happen Here, and It’s Later Than You Think.
When in 1939 Dr. Virgil Jordan declared that for eight years past the people of these United States have been the victims of a "well planned" conspiracy to destroy our Economic-political system and supplant it with some form of National Socialism; he made a statement that few of our people were then prepared to understand. . . . But since 1941 our people have become increasing suspicious of the "regimentation" persistently enforced by the New Dealers, even when such regimentation was defended on the ground of "military necessity". . . . Today, millions of our people are beginning to suspect that the War is being used to entrench Fascism HERE, rather than to destroy Fascism abroad. . . . As just one evidence of this nation-wide suspicion, is the recent attitude of Congress toward the newly discovered plot of the new Dealers to perpetuate and EXTEND the power of the O.P.A. AFTER THE WAR. As reported in the public press of June 5th, 1944, Congressman Walter Ploesser said: "The election this fall is our last chance to retain free enterprise in America. Big business and Little business are not fighting each other, but both are fighting to defend themselves against Governmental regimentation which would make every man a servant of the state. . . . The Roosevelt-inspired planners, by their own words, have dedicated themselves to retaining and extending every encroachment they have made on the rights of free enterprise, and there are plans afoot to carry over O.P.A as a permanent post-war fixture in America." . . . Which is to say that AFTER the War, every precinct and every township will have an O.P.A. "enforcer", who in addition to his duty as a "persecuter" and prosecutor of every businessman, will also be a member of an army of 200,000 secret agents, which as an American Gestapo, will follow, shadow, threaten and persecute EVERY American citizen, with the same relentless fury, as that with which the Gestapos of Europe have tormented the people of that unfortunate Continent."
When in 1934 the New Deal Administration took us off the Gold Standard and began paying $35 an ounce for gold the English Bankers had produced for $17 an ounce; and when four months later June 1934, Lord Lothian a ranking British statesman after declaring that a new war was brewing in Europe begged his Government to have no further participation in the forcing of that war; it became evident that the speech of Lord Lothian, the buying of English gold, the Bank Holiday of March 1933, and the N. R. A. of the same year when considered together furnished unmistakable evidence of a deal between the "Old Dealers" of London (the International Bankers) and "New Dealers" of Washington to destroy our economic-political system and supplant it with a "Socialistic Regimentation." It was then evident that someone should do for Americans what Lord Lothian had done for his countrymen in England, warn them of the danger then impending.
But it was not until four years later that any American of National standing realized that the forces sponsoring the NEW war prophesied by Lord Lothian, and the forces promoting the New Deal were one and the same. Thus in 1938 America’s leading Economist Dr. Virgil Jordan, startled the nation with a speech which included the startling phrase that for eight years past the people of this country have been the victims of a "well planned conspiracy," to destroy our American system and replace it with a Socialistic Dictatorship: Then a few months later Mr. George N. Peek, the nation’s leading foreign trade expert in a speech in which he explained the foreign-trade Report which he had prepared in 1934 said, "the stockmarket crash of March 1933 and the new depression which began in that month were the direct results of the manipulations of International Bankers." (Discussed later in this book.)
When we remember that the two gentlemen just mentioned were recognized experts in Economics, Finance and Foreign Trade and that their every pronouncement on these subjects was regarded as authoritative by the reading public of America, we should have expected that their startling statements above quoted would have had sufficiently warned our American people, to have caused the defeat of the New Deal Conspirators in the election of 1940: But in 1940, our complacent people still believed "It can’t happen here," and proceeded to vote as "partisans" rather than as American. Today, in 1944, our people know that "IT can happen here," and they are terrified lest a fourth New Deal Victory should result in the complete destruction of what little is left of our economic and political freedom.
If it is true as said by Dr. Jordan, that for years past the New Dealers "have been promoting a "well planned conspiracy": and if it is also true as said by George N. Peek, that the International Bankers were responsible for the stock-market crash and the new depression which began in March 1933 (the month the New Dealers came to power); then it would seem clear beyond argument that the International Bankers and the New Dealers were working TOGETHER to promote that "well planned conspiracy".
It is to prevent a fourth New Deal victory and a further extension of this "well planned conspiracy" that we have here presented this booklet "Forty Years of Roosevelt." But since we cannot rightly appraise this forty years of Rooseveltism until we first correctly apraise International Banking, we must now devote some pages to that "Conspiracy for World Dominion" which beginning 150 years ago resulted finally in that forty years of Roosevelt to which this present booklet is dedicated.
But before giving a brief history of International Banking, the readers attention is directed to this important fact: that only by absolute secrecy could the International Bankers promote their plan for the destruction of NATIONALISM and the establishment of INTERnationalism. And for this reason they have ever "moved in mysterious ways their wonders to perform" and have ever required their prepaid economists and politicians to DENY, that any such thing ever existed as an International Banker. . . .So far as this author is aware no book has yet been published for the express purpose of exposing both the existence of the International Banker and of the "mysterious ways" in which he performs; and it is to furnish such an expose that the following pages are now presented. . . .
While every fact and major event presented herein may be found recorded in the History books used in our public schools, this is the first time these facts and events have been arranged in their proper sequences; catalogued, dated and explained.
THE CONSPIRACY FOR WORLD DOMINION
International Banking had its origin about 150 years ago when Mayer Amschel, the founder of the House of Rothschild, sent his four sons to establish branch-banks in the four financial centers of Europe: London, Paris, Vienna, and Naples. . . .
The father had earlier explained to the sons that whoever controlled the Gold of a nation controlled also the currency and credit of that nation; saying in that connection, "Give me the power to issue a nation’s money, and I care not who makes the nation’s laws." . . .
Some 30 years prior to the establishment of these branch-banks, King George III of England had bought from the Landgrave of Hesse, the services of 12,000 Hessian soldiers (later used against the American colonies), paying therefor the sum of Twenty Million Dollars, IN GOLD. . . . Much of this Gold was later loaned to the House of Rothschild, and divided between the five great banks of the family, at London, Paris, Vienna, Naples, and Frankfort. . . . Thus with their unrivaled command of gold, plus their unequalled financial genius and their five branch-banks strategically located, the House of Rothschild soon achieved financial dominance in Europe; from which vantage-point their power was to later spread across the world. . . .
By 1820, the other great banking houses of Europe for reasons of policy or necessity, had allied themselves with the Rothschilds, and then began on a world-wide scale, what we have since known as International Banking.
But we greatly underestimate the genius of these first International Bankers if we imagine that their vision and Plan went no further than the domination of Europe’s currency and credit; for even at this early date they were dreaming of a World Dominion wherein they would control Industry and Commerce, as well as Finance. . . . But as they saw from the very outset, their dream of World Dominion could never be realized until they had first destroyed — NATIONALISM. . . . And since in each European nation, Nationalism centered around a King or a Prince who would resent and resist the domination of an alien financial power, it was clear to these early Internationalists that Royalty and Aristocracy must be removed or at least silenced, before they could safely proceed with their Plan for World Dominion.
Thus from the very moment the first Rothschild received from the Landgrave of Hesse that twenty millions in gold, from that moment began their active operations against Royalty and Aristocracy; and when occasion demanded against Orderly Government whatever its form. . . . For these early Internationalists realized even as did the great teacher of Nazareth "that no man and no nation can serve two masters:; and so it happened that from the days of Valley Forge unto this hour, under some such slogan as "Democracy" or "Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity," they have labored ceaselessly to undermine National unity (Nationalism), and to promote that dis-unity which is the condition precedent of Inter-Nationalism.
Thus in the dark days of Valley Forge when the cause of American "Democracy" seemed all but lost, it was the money of these International Bankers, relayed through Haym Solamon to Robert Morris and then to the Continental Congress, that saved the day for American "Democracy." . . . A few years later it was again their money which supported the French revolution until King, Queen, and Nobility were liquidated and French "Democracy" established. And a few years later their money was again used to finance Napoleon in his war against the Royalty of Spain.
But we again underestimate the genius of these early Bankers if we imagine that their attacks upon the Royalty of England, France, and Spain, were sponsored out of their love for Democracy, for when the seat of War had removed from Spain to France, it was their money which financed the English Army under Wellington, to defeat Napoleon and the army of "Democratic" France. . . . Proof that even in this early day International Money had neither Conscience nor Patriotism, nor could have, since both in power and OBJECTIVE, it was "International." . . . And so from the days of Waterloo to the present hour they have shifted their gold from land to land, financing first in one nation, then another – an endless series of wars and revolutions. . . .Thus in 1812 they were financing England in her wars against America and France. In 1848 their money spread revolution throughout Europe. In 1860 to 1865, their money was financing the South in our American Civil War. Their money was again present in the Russian revolution of 1917, the German revolution of 1918, and the Spanish revolution of 1935. That all of these wars and revolutions were fought in the name of Democracy is a matter of history, but in reality they were used if not started by the International Bankers to destroy the confidence of the people in their respective Governments, whether headed by a King or an Emperor, a Czar or a Sultan, a Parliament or a Congress. In brief, to destroy NATIONALISM. . . .
For the past 44 years, or since 1900, they have both modified and amplified their International procedure, and following their wars, revolutions, panics, and labor disorders, they have urged Democracy, and more Democracy, and Still more Democracy(?) as the only solution of the World’s ills; and to this end in more recent years, they have financed Communist newspapers and periodicals, Communist Radio programs and Forums. To promote Democracy? Of course not. . . . But to destroy Democracy and promote that chaos through which they will complete their plan for World Dominion as set forth in the final chapter of this book.
Nearly one hundred years ago the greatest of British statesmen, Disraeli, said boastingly, "the people little realize who their real rulers are" and Disraeli should have known whereof he spoke, since the "real rulers," the International Bankers, had made him Prime Minister of England.
To reveal who are these "real rulers," I wrote in 1935 the booklet "The Truth About Money" to show "how" the International Banker operates in the field of Finance. In 1940 I issued a second booklet, "The Truth About England" to show how these Internationalists operate in the field of "World Politics". In this present booklet, I shall deal with that final stage of this Internationalist Plot for World Dominion which is now but one short step from final success; a Success they will surely achieve, unless in the coming November election we elect as President, a man who believes in NATIONALISM; who believes in saving America FIRST, and in saving other nations when and if convenient. Some years ago Sinclair Lewis published his famous book "It Can’t Happen Here", the book in which he prophesied that IT WOULD HAPPEN HERE, as it did. For three years following the publication of this book, by platform and radio all over this nation, hundreds of orators including some Senators and Congressmen warned the country that "it was happening here"; and that if the people themselves did not unite to stop it, the day would come when power-drunk New Deal Bureaucracy, throwing caution and the Constitution to the winds, would step forth as a Dictatorial government and start ruling by decree. And just within the past week, (April 1944) that Bureaucratic government has given us proof that the warning thus issued was neither prejudiced nor ill-advised: For the seizure of Montgomery Ward was both a sensational event and a guaranty that similar events might be expected on an ever widening scale. And the conclusion would seem inescapable, that if given another four years in office the extension of the Dictatorial power of the New Dealers will be limited only by their own greed.
Thus in this year of grace 1944 I publish this third booklet, to give a third and perhaps final warning to our people to "flee from the wrath to come" by fleeing to the polls in November, and stopping cold but permanently that Plot for World Dominion which first entered America in 1901 when Theodore Roosevelt inherited the Presidency, and which 40 years later had all but completed its Imperialist program, when in 1941, a second Roosevelt took us into war.
After eight years as President, George Washington ended his long career of service and leadership, with the most powerful and persuasive speech ever delivered to this nation: A speech so fraught with wisdom and so filled with patriotism that for more than one hundred years that speech was the foundation, the walls, and the roof of our nation’s Foreign Policy.
For in this his "Farewell Address" he had said to succeeding Presidents and to the nation, "KEEP OUT OF FOREIGN ENTANGLEMENTS" and "never quit our own to stand on foreign ground" . . . It is interesting to reflect that if the Father of our Country were with us now and advocating such a policy, he would be arrested as a "subversive" and jailed for sedition. What a difference between this Washington policy, and that of a later president who said "our frontier is on the Rhine," and "the British Navy is our first line of defense."
But "there were giants in those days of Washington" giants in wisdom and in courage and in their love of all things American. . . Thus the men of his day were so quick to see the wisdom of his advice, that it immediately became known as the "Washington Policy of Splendid Isolation"; and in due time became our "Traditional Foreign Policy." And for the next hundred years each succeeding President adhered faithfully to Washington’s advice as they saw the nation growing in population, power and prosperity as a result of our "Splendid Isolation." And while throughout that same one hundred years the people of Europe were engaged in war, preparing for war, or recovering from war, the people of America continued to prosper, because their Government had refrained from those alliances and entanglements that must ever lead to war. It was therefore inevitable that during that one hundred years our people would become increasingly "Nationalistic"; which is to say, they became increasing aware that they owed their continuing prosperity, to their Government’s adherence to the Washington Policy of "Isolation" . . .
Though again and again as in 1787, 1811, 1863, and 1898, the International Bankers had used the emergencies of War in their effort to wreck our independence: Though innumerable times during that one hundred years the International Bankers endeavored to "entangle" us in Foreign Alliances; yet through all this one hundred years of "Internationalist" intrigue our Government adhered to our traditional policy, and our people seemed destined to an unending career of peaceful prosperity, as a result of our "Splendid Isolation" . . .
But alas and alack we were doomed to disappointment, for we had underestimated the genius of the International Bankers. For after one hundred years of immunity, our "Splendid Isolation" came to an end in 1901, when following the assassination of William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt inherited the Presidency.
Now at long last the International Bankers had a friend in the White House, and NOW they could move their base of operations from London to Washington and begin their 40 year plan for the subjugation of America, as the next step in their greater plan for World Dominion.
Just 40 years later in 1941, another Roosevelt by taking his country into a global war, brought the "Internationalist" Plan for World Dominion to within one short step of complete success, a step that will assuredly be taken if the coming November election is won by either a New Deal Democrat or an "Internationalist" Republican. Since therefore it was in 1901 that THEODORE Roosevelt began the systematic violation of our policy of "Splendid Isolation"; and in 1941 that FRANKLIN Roosevelt had all but completed the destruction of our Traditional American Policy, I have called this booklet:
FORTY YEARS OF ROOSEVELT
Before beginning the story of Rooseveltism it might be wise to answer an objection that could be entered here: — "That between the administrations of the two Roosevelts there were Presidents like Taft, Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover who opposed the violation of our "Traditional Policy." That these honored gentlemen were thus opposed is true, but it must be well remembered that once the "International" virus had entered our nation’s blood-stream; that once we had departed from precedent and violated our Traditional Policy; and that once the International Bankers had become entrenched in American finance, Commerce, and Industry, nothing less that a first-class miracle could have saved the nation from the poison still coursing through its veins. It is true that the four Presidents above named did their best to neutralize that Internationalist poison, but to neutralize was the best they could do, a mircle they could not perform. So the poison remained and though latent for a time, awaited the coming of a president who would not neutralize its power but would instead, create a national condition of confusion and disunity in which that International poison could spread its paralyzing and destructive effects.
Thus as will be shown in the pages that follow, there has been no break in the chain of Rooseveltism from the days of Theodore to the days of Franklin . . . In the life of an individual, some disastrous event might be explained as an "accident" but there are no accidents in the life of a Nation. Those outstanding events which profoundly affect or change the life of a nation are never accidental: They are "Planned that Way" . . . And with this thought in mind we begin the story of
HOW THEODORE ROOSEVELT CAME TO POWER
Here follows a WORLD story in which an American President is the central figure; a story the reader should both memorize and circulate. For here is more than a mere story, here is HISTORY, arranged in such chronological sequence that even a New Dealer will be able to see that every National and World event for the past 130 years was but the Effect of a foregoing Cause, and that the motivating power back of each foregoing Cause, was the genius of the International Banker, slowly, methodically and successfully "planning" his way toward World Dominion. . . . As each Cause begets an effect, and that Effect in time becomes a Cause begetting another Effect, thus in tracing the reason for Theodore Roosevelt’s promotion to Power we go back from effect to cause, from effect to cause, until we come to that day in July 1815 when an English army financed by a London Banker defeated the army of Napoleon; with the result that in twenty-four hours after Waterloo, this same London Banker had become the richest man in the Empire and a power in the Bank of England . . . With the defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo, England in twenty-four hours had moved from her position as a second-rate power and become overnight, the greatest power on Earth; but more important still this new and greater England had fallen under the mastery of the greatest financial genius of all time, Nathan Rothschild . . .
For the next seventy-five years no nation on earth could challenge or even question England’s supremacy on land or sea, or in commerce or Finance. During those seventy-five years England's territorial possessions were more than doubled and her wealth in Finance, Industry, and Commerce was more than quadrupled, and the credit for this stupendous expansion should go to Nathan Rothschild and to the man his son Lionel made Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli. Until near the end of that seventy-five years it was the belief of the British Aristocracy, Princes, Bankers, and Merchants, that "the world was their oyster" and that nothing could or would happen to disrupt their continued exploitation of their world-oyster: But something DID happen; in fact had been happening for nearly twenty years before they discovered their danger. For in 1890 the English Bankers and Merchants awoke to the realization that in the preceding twenty years two other nations, Germany and the United States, had become her equal in Industry, were well on their way to become her equal in foreign commerce, and if given another twenty years to prosper would neutralize if not destroy England’s Financial supremacy. In brief, in that twenty years Germany and the United States had climbed to power TOGETHER.
AND HERE IS HOW IT HAPPENED
Prior to 1870 the several states of Germany were little more united than were the Balkan states of that day, but following the defeat of the French at Sedan in 1870 these little German states were welded by Bismark into a German Empire, and under the guidance of the Iron Chancellor the new Empire soon learned that "In Union there is Strength" and then began the rapid and steady advance in Industry and Commerce, which in just twenty years had made Germany the strongest power on the Continent . . . As early as 1880 this growth of German power had excited the jealousy of her neighbors Russia and France, but neither nation was then in a position to challenge German expansion. Even England by 1880 was aware of Germany’s growing strength but chose for a time to regard German expansion with favor since it served England’s interest as a bulwark against a Russian-French alliance . . . But finally in 1890 English Bankers, Industrialists and Merchants came to a full realization of the following facts, (A) the EXTENT of German expansion in Industry and Commerce; (B) The Economic reason for that expansion.
Let us study them in turn: From 1846 to about 1886 England had absorbed the major portion of the surplus food-products and raw-materials produced in her Colonies, paying for such imports with the products of her English factories. This trade between the Colonies and the Mother Country was little other than Trade and Barter, with no distinct monetary gain to either party: England’s monetary profits during this period had come partly from the re-sale of Colonial products to the nations of Europe, partly from the sale of factory products to the same nations, but MAINLY, from her loans of gold and credit to the European nations by which their purchases of English and Colonial products had been effected. . . As a result of this three-way commerce, the Colonies were loyal to England as the only market for their surplus products, and England in turn was dependent upon the Colonies as the source of those products the resale of which made it possible for her to dominate the Commerce and Banking of Europe . . . In brief, for this period of forty years from 1846 to 1886, the European market had been a dumping-ground for the surplus products of England and her Colonies, and had furnished a fertile field for the investment of English capital. So considered this European market had been for forty years, the "foundation" of British and Colonial prosperity. But as the strength of a building depends largely on the strength of its foundation, so the strength of the British Empire now depended upon the retention of this European market. To lose that market would be to lose her best field for Capital investment, would mean the loss of her best market for surplus products of English Industry, and the loss of the ONLY market into which she could dump the surplus products of her Colonies . . . As the International Bankers saw the picture in 1886 the Empire’s former STRENGTH was about to become its greatest WEAKNESS: To lose that European market would mean the break-up of the British Empire . . . It must not be lost . . .
Thus for the next four years or until 1890 the English Bankers devoted themselves to a careful study of both the EXTENT and the REASONS for that rapid German expansion which in a few short years had robbed England of two-thirds of her European market . . . They discovered first, that German factories and laboratories were then producing three articles which no other nation was then equipped to produce: Dye-stuffs, Chemicals, and Precision Tools, the three articles which were soon to become the foundation of all modern industry: And that with these three products as a lure or bait, Germany by 1890 had caught two-thirds of the European market. The English Bnkers next discovered the source of Germany’s food and raw materials, one-half of which had come from the smaller nations of Europe and the other half from the United States of America: And, that whereas England must maintain a great Army, and Navy to protect her own source of food and raw materials, no such protections was necessary to protect German sources of supply.
But finally and worse yet, it was discovered that Germany’s trade with her neighbors and the United States was being carried on without the need of Capital or financing; for to facilitate her trade Germany had established what was practically a system of Trade and Barter, by which the surplus products of German factories and laboratories were being exchanged for the surplus foods and raw-materials of other nations . . . Then to cap the climax, the English Bankers discovered that Germany was establishing IN the United States, vast plants and laboratories for the manufacture of Chemicals, Dye-stuffs and Precision Tools; and that these factories together with heavy German investments in American Factories and Railroads had built up in the United States, an Industrial System that would soon deprive England of her American Markets, as German expansion on the Continent had deprived England of her European Markets . . . To shorten a long story, English Bankers and Merchants by 1890 had come to realize that Germany in Europe and the United States in the Western Hemisphere had built up Industrial Empires more modern and more resourceful than their own; and that these German and American Industrial systems had become the two mill-stones which would eventually grind the British Empire into dust . . .
Naturally, of much concern to the Bankers was their loss of the American Market for Capital investment, for prior to 1890, 70% of American Railroads and Factories had been financed by English capital, but now that American Industry was being financed by American capital and equipped with German machines and chemicals, it was clear to the International Banker that his plan to achieve World Dominion, by shifting his gold from nation to nation was doomed to failure; unless and until a way could be found to destroy not one but both of these new Industrial Giants . . . It was no longer a question of advisability, it was now a matter of necessity . . . One of two things must disappear, the World Plan of the International Banker or the Industrial Power of Germany and America.
BOXER REBELLION TRAPS RUSSIA
In 1890 the International Bankers began work on a secondary plan to remove the barrier which blocked the progress of their World Plan; the barrier of German and American competition. And the question which then concerned them was, which nation should they attack first, and how? But before they could take their first step toward their secondary plan, a new danger confronted them in China; where their third best market was endangered by the Boxer Rebellion . . . Now a "rebellion" is usually the uprising of a people against their own government, but this Boxer Rebellion was directed against foreign governments (chiefly England) which had been exploiting the Chinese people. This rebellion must be put down or another great market for English goods and capital would be lost. But how could the International Bankers employ England’s army and Navy in China, when that army and navy would soon be needed to regain her market in Europe?
The answer was both simple and typical; they would get some other nation to do the fighting; so they hurriedly signed a commercial treaty with Japan by which British rights of extra-territoriality in Japan were abolished, and Japan given the money and machinery necessary for a war against China. This war which began in 1894 soon liquidated what remained of the Boxer rebellion, and what was almost equally important, gave Korea to Japan; thus making Japanese military power a new and dangerous threat to Russia, AND TO A TRANS-SIBERIAN RAILROAD then being considered by Russia and China . . . It will be remembered that since the days of Peter the Great, Russia had attempted to modernize and take her place among the industrial nations of the West: But as Peter the Great and a dozen later monarchs had realized, Russia could never become a great power until she could first secure passage for her shipping through the Dardanelles and into the Mediterranean and Atlantic. But for two hundred years, Turkey, backed by English naval and military power had defeated the dozen attempts made by Russia to secure this all-the-year passage to the Seven Seas. Thus, when in 1877 the English army and navy again came to Turkey’s aid and drove the Russian armies back from Constantinople, the Russian Czar realized that some other method of solving Russia’s shipping problem must be developed . . . To this end in 1879, the Czar proposed a military alliance to France in the West, and similar alliances to the nations of the Balkans. Though it was some years before these alliances were achieved the danger from such alliances was immediately apparent to Germany, Austria, and Italy, and these three nations in 1883 formed what was later known as The Triple Alliance. For some years thereafter England approved of this Triple Alliance since it caused France to seek England’s friendship in the West; and also weakened Russia in Asia and Siberia. At this time in 1890, Russia was preparing to begin the Siberian Railroad which would give Russia an all-the-year port on the Pacific; But for two reasons England did not want this railroad built. First, because Russia since 1880 had been following America’s example of using German machines and chemicals for the building of a Russian Industrial system; and though Russian Industry would not endanger English Industry and Commerce so long as Russian products were sold within the Empire, those products would become a menace and particularly in China, with the building of the Siberian Railroad . . .
England’s second reason for opposing Russian expansion was the fact that if Russia grew too strong it would be difficult and more expensive later, when England would propose a military alliance with Russia and France, against Germany.
But as the records show, England was not able to prevent the building of the Trans-Siberian railroad, and because of her failure England was later compelled to use both War and Bribes to bring Russia into the Triple Entent.
Thus in 1897 the International Bankers made their first move to entrap Russia, when Japan adopted THE GOLD STANDARD: Five years later they made their next move, and in 1904 Japan attacked Russia. Fifteen months later when the Russian Fleet had been destroyed and the Russian armies annihilated, the Bankers made their third move, WHEN THEY DELEGATED PRESIDENT THEODORE ROOSEVELT to "arbitrate" a Peace Treaty between Russia and Japan . . . This was the first time the International Bankers had used their friend Theodore, but it was by no means the last time. It was also during these proceedings that Theodore entered into a "secret" agreement with Japan (see Mussey’s American History 1942 ed. page 566), an agreement so secret that even American statesmen knew nothing about it until years later. (See also Mussey’s History, pages 560-565.)
But here we are ahead of our story, so let’s return to that fateful year 1890 when the International Bankers first began their plan to remove German and American competition. The question which then troubled them was, which of the two nations should be attacked first, but having had some experience in attacking America in 1776 and 1812, they quickly and wisely decided to center their first attack upon Germany: And to this end in 1900, they set out to secure allies to "aid" them with the fighting. Aware that France was still suffering as a result of the German defeat at Sedan in 1870; and that France had long desired to seize and colonize Morocco just across the Mediterranean; and remembering finally that French ambitions in Morocco had long been thwarted by Great Britain; the Bankers now planed to give Morocco to France, in return for a French pledge to join England in a later attack upon Germany. The Bankers were well aware of the risk they here assumed, for a "colonized" Morocco would not only double the economic and military strength of France but would bring this revitalized France right next door to British possessions in Egypt and the Soudan. Moreover the gift of Morocco to France would not only be resisted by Spain and Morocco, but might be resisted by both Germany and Italy. But since their European market was at stake and their World Plan endangered, they were forced to assume these risks; and so in 1904 the secret treaty for the theft of Morocco was duly signed by France and England . . . And you may be sure that here as in the treaty between Theodore and Japan, the PEOPLE of the countries involved had no knowledge of the Secret Treaty . . . That Spain made no open resistance to the French-English plot against her holdings in Morocco, is understood when we remember that Spain had just lost her financial, economic and military power in the Spanish-American War; Nor did Morocco have the resources for successful resistance. But as the International Bankers had foreseen, Germany DID resent the French-English plot and for a good reason . . . For more than twenty years prior to 1904, most all of the hydro-electric, sanitary and railroad equipment installed in Morocco had come from Germany and had been paid for with the surplus products of Morocco . . . As in our own case, this "trade and barter" carried on without borrowed Capital had been highly profitable to both countries and particularly to Morocco: And as a byproduct of this trade a strong friendship had grown up between the German Kaiser and the Sultan of Morocco. Therefore when in 1905 it was clear that the French-English plot would deprive both Germany and Morocco of their profitable trade, the Kaiser visited the Sultan and urged the Moroccan monarch to resist the French and the English. Sorrowfully the Sultan replied that he could not resist; he was surrounded on all sides by French and English military and naval strength.
But the Kaiser COULD do something about it and did: He demanded that German trade still have free passage into and out of Morocco (And had this been then agreed to Morocco would never have become a French colony and France might then have hesitated to join England in a war against Germany.) So at the suggestion of the International Bankers, the matter was referred to arbitration. But what nation or monarch in Europe could arbitrate such a matter when they were all financially interested in the outcome? For this question the International Bankers had been waiting and they at once proposed Theodore Roosevelt as arbitrator, since he had no interest in the outcome. (sic) In 1906 Theodore made his report and as you have already guessed his report was in favor of France and England and against Germany. (Mussey’s History, p. 575.)
Aware at last that he had been tricked, the Kaiser again demanded that Moroccan ports be kept open to German shipping; and since neither France or England were then ready for their war, they were forced to submit. Out of that affair only one nation came forth as victor, and that was England; for she had won and permanently, French support for her coming war; and of equal importance for the success of that war, she had won for the second time the support of Theodore Roosevelt, who two years later would appear for the third time as a friend of the International Bankers.
With France already preparing for the War, England now turned to Russia, whose boundaries encircled Germany on the East as did those of France on the West. As the International Bankers had feared, the winning of Russia would prove far more difficult than had been the winning of France: For Russia still remembered that it was England which for two hundred years had deprived her of a passage into the Mediterranean, and that in the past fifty years English armies had twice defeated Russian armies at Sevastapol and Constantinople . . . Moreover in still more recent years Russia’s plan to acquire the oil fields of Persia had been blocked by this same England. Thus when asked to join the French-English military alliance against Germany, Russia demanded both a passage into the Mediterranean and the oil fields of Persia. This was clearly a terrible price to pay for a Russian alliance, for as to the Persian Oil fields, they were already being developed by the British Bankers and were among the most valuable oil fields in the world: And to grant Russia a passage-way through the Dardanelles would not only endanger English domination of the Mediterranean, but might drive Turkey in an alliance with Germany. (as later happened). Moreover to bring Russia into Persia and the Mediterranean might later endanger English domination of India; and the India of that date furnished two-thirds of Britain’s income.
But again England must assume all the risks here involved, and with her promise that Russia should have the Persian oil fields and a passage into the Mediterranean, the British-Russian military alliance against Germany was signed in 1907.
A few months later England arranged a similar treaty with Belgium by which English money and French engineers erected a chain of forts along the Belgian-German border. Being already allied to Greece and Rumania by Royal marriages, the fall of 1907 found England ready to begin actual preparations for war. For between 1900 and 1907, England had completely encircled Germany with a wall of steel, and beyond that wall stood the armies of Russia, Rumania, Greece, France, Belgium and England, ready for the word to attack.
Thus in 1907, the English press suddenly burst forth with violent and continued attacks upon Germany, propaganda to secure the support of the English public, for the war which the International Bankers had hoped would begin in 1908 . . .
But there was one English statesman who knew that England was not yet ready for war, for as this statesman Winston Churchill pointed out, they could not safely attack Germany until a way could be found to stop the flood of food and raw-materials flowing into Germany from Scandanavial and the smaller states of Europe. If these imports had been of great value to Germany in time of Peace they would be absolutely vital in time of war. But how could these European states be persuaded to stop0 their trade with Germany when that trade was as important to them as it was to Germany?
Again the International Bankers had the answer, they would call in their good American Friend Theodore Roosevelt; as president of the United States he could solve their problem, and he did.
For during 1907 and 1908 the American Government entered into "reciprocal Trade Treaties" with every nation in Europe, EXCEPT Germany; as a result of which treaties ALL THE SURPLUS PRODUCTS OF THESE EUROPEAN NATIONS could be bought by the United States and would be paid for with Gold or goods as the said nations might require . . . Thus for the third time in four years the "good-neighbor" Theodore had stepped into the World Picture; and by so doing was guilty of a direct violation of the Constitution and of his twice repeated oath of office; but he had pulled the "Big" Bankers chestnuts out of the fire . . . But he had done more than that; he had destroyed that Washington Policy of Isolation to which we had adhered for one hundred and ten years to our continuing profit; and he had set in motion that forty-year period of Internationalist Imperialism which has already cost us two Wars, four Depressions, a dozen Panics, and a Financial loss beyond computation. And the end is not yet.
Thus with the three-time assistance of Theodore, the British picture in 1908 stood as follows: By secret treaties with Russia, Rumania, Greece, France and Belgium, England had completely encircled Germany with a wall of steel; and by the nearly secret Reciprocal Trade Treaties of Theodore, England had cut off most of the food and raw-materials upon which Germany must depend in time of war . . .
Why, then, didn’t the shooting begin in 1908 when the "Allies" were prepared? Why did they postpone the war until 1914 and thus give Germany six years to prepare? Ah, the reader has forgotten something; he has forgotten that the International Bankers’ plan of 1900 not only proposed to remove Germany as a competitor but the United States as well; and thus the postponement . . . In brief, in 1908 the International Bankers inserted into their plan a new idea, the idea that if the United States could not be persuaded to fight in the coming War, they could at least be forced or persuaded to finance it.
The Big Bankers had at first hoped that Theodore could be persuaded to run for the third term so they could have a friend in the White House when the war began; but when this idea was finally rejected their next best bet was to see that Theodore’s successor in office would be a man "who would listen to reason"; the selection of this man being left to the Roosevelt entourage . . .
Fortunately for America but unfortunately for the Big Bankers, the choice fell upon William Howard Taft; who was later elected. Soon after Mr. Taft’s election, Theodore left for England where he would be joined by some "economic royalists" of London and then proceed to Africa for his famous hunting rip. No sooner had he landed in London than he was besieged by his Banker friends who asked if it was absolutely certain that Taft could be depended upon to "CARRY OUT THE ROOSEVELT POLICIES." Teddy quickly convinced them that Taft would carry out the Roosevelt Policies, and thus assured, the jolly friends sailed away to Darkest Africa. But soon after reaching their happy hunting grounds they were informed by their fellow conspirators in London, that while Taft was carrying out the Roosevelt policies, he was carrying them out to the incinerator. Teddy at once wrote Taft to stop being a boy-scout and to resume the Roosevelt policies or else—. Mr. Taft replied the HE was President of the United States and that as such he would adhere to the policies of Washington and the Constitution, rather than the policies of Roosevelt. (and the International Bankers). The answer was such a terrific shock to Teddy and his friends that soon after, both were back in London and at work on a plan to get rid of Taft at the coming election in 1912.
Returning to America Teddy began his part of their plan for the elimination of Taft, by a continuing series of newspaper and platform tirades against the President: And while Teddy was so engaged, Col. E. Mandel House who up to that time had never been heard of, set out to promote a Democratic Candidate who if elected, would resume and continue the original Roosevelt plan.
As the date of the Democratic National Convention drew near it was clear to Col. House and his International Banker associates, that neither of the two more prominent candidates, William J. Bryan or Champ Clark, could be used in their conspiracy; which left only the scholarly but inexperienced Woodrow Wilson as a prospect. So off to Sea Girt, New Jersey, went Col. House for a week’s conference with Mr. Wilson. When the conference had ended Col. House informed his Banker friends that Mr. Wilson was perfectly "safe." Thereafter Col. House went to Baltimore to "Influence" receptive Delegates, while his Banker friends went to New York to "influence" Charlie Murphy, the Boss of Tammany Hall and the New York Delegation.
For several days thereafter neither Col. House nor his Banker friends had much success for after more than one hundred ballots, the Convention was still dead-locked . . . Bryan having damned Boss Murphy and Tammany Hall, and Murphy having double-damned Bryan, it seemed impossible to get both Bryan and Murphy to support the same candidate. Finally, however, Boss Murphy "cracked" and threw the New York Delegation to Wilson, and the deed was done. But nominating Wilson and electing him were two different things, as his conspiratorial friends soon discovered. Not only was President Taft highly popular throughout the nation but his Administration had been both free of corruption and genuinely progressive. As for Candidate Wilson he just didn’t seem to click, and try as they did his sponsors were unable to provoke the proper enthusiasm. Thereupon the International Bankers went into a huddle, to later come forth with a play destined to score a touchdown. And as you well remember, they called on the redoubtable Teddy to carry the ball. Or, as they say in Harvard, Mr. Theodore Roosevelt was chosen to run on the Progressive Ticket; or to be still more accurate, to head the Progressive Party, which Teddy and his Banker friends proceeded to steal from the Senior Bob LaFollette.
There have been some rotten campaigns in Denmark, New York and Chicago (1940) but nothing before or since has equalled the campaign of 1912, with its unadulterated putridity and its criminal betrayal of the hopes and interests of the American people . . . For we know now and many of us knew then, that the Big Bankers hadn’t the slightest hope that Teddy would be elected for a third term and that the only reason he had been sent into the campaign was to split the Republican vote, and thus defeat Mr. Taft who would NOT play the Bankers’ game, while electing Mr. Wilson who WOULD play that game. And play it he did, whether he ever fully realized it or not.
Thus for the fourth time in his strange career this strange man Theodore had endangered his country’s welfare to play the game of Internationalism and Imperialism. It is of course possible that in the first three times he had served the Internationalists, that Teddy believed he was acting for the best interests of his country; but in this fourth and final effort to serve the Bankers, even the most stubborn of his friends must find cause for shame.
It was the Republican Party which had made him Governor of New York, and the Republican Party which had made him President of the United States; therefore when in the campaign of 1912 his desertion of his Party made possible the election of Wilson and the War and tragedy that followed; it was a circumstance that can neither be lightly dismissed nor ever forgotten.
This leaves but one further fact to be explained in this story of HOW Theodore became President and WHY . . .
While the assassination of William McKinley was a tragedy, it was still less tragic than the events which immediately followed; the death of American Nationalism and the birth of those tragic twins, Internationalism and Imperialism.
It will be remembered that having been forced to declare war on Spain in 1898, (to weaken Spain for the later theft of Morocco) and having in 1900 been compelled to accept Theodore Roosevelt as Vice-presidential Candidate, McKinley saw close ahead the rocks upon which our traditional American policy would soon be wrecked; and that it was then that he gave expression to his now immortal statement, "I regret to see my country forced into the Untried Paths of Empire" . . . Picture the sorrow of this truly great American as he saw his country being drawn into a spider web of alien intrigue; being forced to abandon the policies which for more than one hundred years had made and kept it great; and being compelled to follow the "Untried Paths of Empire" which from the days of Babylon, Greece and Rome had ended always in the swamp of disaster . . . Well might he regret the "Untried Paths," and well may we.
Beyond any doubt when all the facts are known, it will be discovered that his words decrying the Untried Paths, were the words that sealed his doom. For a Power greater than his or any other government, a WORLD Power, a SUPER-Government had need at that moment for an American president who would follow its lead toward World Dominion. Such a president McKinley was NOT, and would never be; but if through divine providence or some more rapid method McKinley could be removed, the man who would succeed him might prove just the president for that then fateful hour.
And strange or not, McKinley WAS removed and with him the Washington Policy: To be succeeded by the Man Of The Hour and the Roosevelt Policy that still endures . . . Thus in 1912 the International Bankers could review the chain of events they had set in motion in 1900: -(a) Spain had been removed as a threat to their rape of Morocco: (b) Russia had been forced into their alliance by the Russo-Japanese War, financed with their money: (c) By their Secret Treaties, Germany had been encircled with a Wall of Steel and an economic blockade: (d) McKinley had been removed to be followed with the friendly Roosevelt: (e) Taft had been removed to be followed by the friendly Wilson: And all was no ready for the great War; all but one thing, —a method by which America could be forced to pay for that War.
To the completion of this last detail, they set to work immediately following the election of Wilson, and by December 1913 this last detail had been arranged when President Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act.
Having for some years made a careful study of American Banking, the International Bankers were aware that it would be far more difficult to enforce their will upon the 28,000 banks of America than upon some Central Bank or System, as maintained in France or England . . . Moreover they were aware that one half of America’s banks were located in rural areas and both molded and REFLECTED the Isolationist sentiment of those rural areas. Clearly such an extended and powerful banking system could NOT be molded to their will; nor could they proceed with their plan to make America pay for their war until these strongholds of Isolationism could be removed. Thus through their agents Warburg and Wilson, the Federal Reserve Act was forced through Congress and their last detail had been arranged.
Thereafter the money of America was (in theory) under the control of the twelve Federal Reserve District Banks; actually it was under the control of the Federal Reserve Bank in New York. And that the International Bankers had planned both wisely and well was almost immediately proven, when they sold more than three billion dollars worth of French and English bonds to the smaller bankers of the nation, who dared not refuse to buy them. And being familiar with all literature, they recalled the words of the Master, "where your treasure is, there will your heart be also"; and knowing these words to be true, they knew that in due time the American people would follow their treasure to Europe, and into War.
Thus in April 1917 the International Bankers could rub their hands in glee and say, "WE planned it that way." And so today, from our too much disinterested vantage-point, we can look back over that period of seventeen nears from 1900 when Theodore was elected Vice-President to 1917 when Woodrow Wilson took us into War, and see as in some vast panorama an unbroken series of wars and revolutions in which thrones toppled into dust, empires followed suit, and Kings, Emperors, Czars and Sultan joined the ranks of the forgotten men, and over which and through which the Four Horsemen, War, Pestilence, Famine, and Death rode like the Valkyries of some demoniac Wagner.
From the wreckage there wrought, NOW was to follow another seventeen-year period in which little blood was spilled, but an ocean of tears was spent as a broken world through stock market crashes and panics, depressions and hunger, sought once again the fields of peace. Thus it happened that from the days of Woodrow Wilson until the coming of the second Roosevelt, our people increasingly declared that "Never again" would we leave our own to stand on foreign ground", and that "never again" would American wealth and manhood be used to save British Imperialism, in the name of a false Democracy . . . But again they were doomed to disappointment for the wars and depression that had brought them sorrow and tragedy, had brought to the International Bankers not merely an increase of wealth and power, but more important still the certainty that another seventeen or twenty years would bring them the completion of their World Plan for World Dominion . . . And so we turn to the second part of the Roosevelt saga to discover
How FRANKLIN Roosevelt came to Power, and WHY . . .
It will be remembered that in June 1934 Lord Lothian startled the world with the declaration that a new war was being planned for Europe and that powerful forces in England were sponsoring that war. So the question now arises "How long before Lord Lothian’s speech had these powerful forces been at work to produce this new war; and WHY did they desire a second World War? The powerful English forces implied in Lord Lothian’s speech had been at work since December 1931, nearly three years before Lord Lothian spilled the beans: And they were planning this new war in Europe as the only possible method of stopping the flood of Communism then threatening to sweep across Europe into England. The reader will also remember that at this time of December 1931, our American depression was reaching for the bottom, with ten millions unemployed, and business-failures spreading like a prairie fire. The reader may also recall that in this same year another terrible depression was spreading through Europe and England, and as a result Communism was also spreading throughout the Continent. On August 7th. 1931 England’s best known newspaper the Manchester Guardian said, "Farmers are burning the wheat in their fields to avoid the expense of harvesting, and over thousands of square miles no attempt will be made to plant a crop for next year." Not only were English crops being left to rot in the fields, but the fishermen of England had stopped fishing; cattle and sheep raisers stopped raising live stock, and the sit-down strike of these food-producers guaranteed a food shortage in England for the years following. By December 1931 the coal mines and textile mills had closed down and all through England hunger parades became a daily occurrence. And these tragedies cited by the English Press were being repeated in every nation in Europe, —except Russia. As a result of this widespread unemployment and hunger, Communism was growing so rapidly in every part of Europe that agents of Soviet Russia were quick to take advantage of this widespread suffering, and moving through every Country of Europe pointed out how in Capitalistic Europe and America millions were unemployed and hungry, while in Communist Russia there was no unemployment and no hunger. As pointed out recently by the distinguished author, Mr. John Hargrave, "While this world collapse had been planned by the Big Bankers, the slump had gotten beyond their control." But more important still this "planned" world depression had created a condition in which Communism could and did thrive, until now (December 1931) it threatened to sweep across the borders of Russia and engulf all Europe. This was an eventuality the Big Bankers had not foreseen: It was something new.
In former world depressions of their creation, the Big Bankers had permitted these depressions to run their course, and then, as and when they chose, the Bankers would restore the world to normalcy. But even in those former days it took time to restore normalcy, and now in 1931 the Big Bankers might not have time to restore normalcy, for Communism might first sweep across Europe and thus end both their power and their plan for World Dominion. Communism must be stopped then and there: But HOW? To this question the Big Bankers gave their usual answer: By War In Europe . . . Having so decided, Mr. Montagu Norman, the chief of the Big Bankers, hurried to Germany, and then to France, and then to the United States to consult with other Big Bankers who play the Imperialist game. . .
When Mr. Norman had returned from his visit to America he reported to his London associates that he could do business with the American Bankers, but not with the American President, Mr. Hoover. In brief in 1931 the Big Bankers faced the same problem as had confronted them in 1912. Now as then, they found in the White House a President who would not play their game. Thus, as in 1912 they had planned to remove Mr. Taft, so now in December 1931 they planned to remove Mr. Hoover. Then and there the Big Bankers set to work upon a Political plan SO FANTASTIC that even the gods who are supposed to be always solemn must have laughed when they heard it. That plan was to finance Adolph Hitler to power in Germany, while financing Franklin Roosevelt to power in the United States . . . Yes, dear Reader, I know you’re shocked, but this WAS the plan as drawn in London in December 1931; and they not only "planned it that way" but they put it over as planned.
Thus in January 1932 the London International Bankers arranged with Dr. Schacht, President of the German Reichsbank and Mr. Thyssen, a German industrial baron, to finance Mr. Hitler into power . . . When almost immediately it became known that now for the first time the Nazi Party had unlimited funds and that these funds had been advanced by Messrs. Schacht and Thyssen, the International Bankers to cover up their part in the plot had it announced that the German Industrialists had financed Hitler as a move against Labor Unionism. As we will now recall, the whole world was fooled by this explanation and therefore the world was kept in ignorance of the real reason for promoting Hitler to power, to-wit: That when Hitler and Germany were prepared, Germany would attack Russia and thus end the danger of Communism sweeping through Europe. But there was one part of the plan which the Big Bankers concealed from Hitler and the German Industrialists and that was: that after a long and destructive war between Germany and Russia, both countries would be so exhausted that England and France would find it easy to quickly suppress what was left of Germany and Russia, and then could recover their European markets, restore their balance of power and remove any future threat of Russian influence in Persia, Turkey or India . . . Six years later in 1938, after Germany had built up a large and modern navy, a mechanized army and a large air-force, and had taken Austria and Czechoslovakia; Prime Minister Chamberlain met Mr. Hitler in the now famous conference at Godesburg. At this conference Mr. Chamberlain plaintively reminded Mr. Hitler that he had been give the money (international banker money) to rearm Germany; upon Mr. Hitler’s definite promise that he would then attack Russia: And now that Germany was re-armed, the Rhineland fortified and Czechoslovakia out of the way, why didn’t Mr. Hitler keep his promise and attack Russia? Mr. Hitler replied evasively that he still needed more time for preparation; and that being the best answer Mr. Chamberlain could get, he made his sorrowful return to London. But at this conference Mr. Hitler had outsmarted Mr. Chamberlain, for the Prime Minister’s words had all been taken down on a dictograph record and the record put aside for future use . . . Some months later when it was clear that Hitler was double-crossing the International Bankers who had financed him and was not going to attack Russia, English agents went to Moscow and for two months tried to persuade Stalin to start a war against Germany. For that matter what did the International Bankers care whether Stalin or Hitler started the war, so long as both Russia and Germany would be exhausted by the war, and thus make it easy for the Big Bankers to regain control of Europe as above explained?
At the last moment when it seemed Stalin might sign up with Britain and France, Von Ribbentrop took his dictograph-record and played it for Stalin, — the record in which Mr. Chamberlain had reminded Mr. Hitler that Germany had been re-armed for an attack on Russia.
Von Ribbentrop then said to Stalin, "Do you now see the plot whereby Russia and Germany were to destroy each other so that the International Bankers through the armies of England and France could restore their Balance of Power in Europe?" Stalin DID see; and startled the world by announcing an alliance with Germany . . . Since this part of the story is continued in the last chapter of this booklet, we now return to the other half of the Political Plot set in motion by the Big Bankers in December 1931.
Having financed the Nazi Party for the campaign which would end in December 1932 with the election of Hitler (an election in which the Communist vote was but 2 millions less than the Nazi vote), the Big Bankers were ready to start a campaign in the United States for the election of Franklin Roosevelt.
Recalling how they had promoted Theodore Roosevelt from Asst. Secy. of the Navy to the Governorship of New York and then to the Vice-Presidency; and that they had later promoted Franklin Roosevelt from Asst. Secy. of the Navy to the Governorship of New York, it should be remembered that through all the years between his days in the Navy Department and his becoming Governor, Franklin Roosevelt had been under the watchful eye of the International Banker agent Col. E. Mandel House: Thus in January 1932 Mr. House started a nation-wide movement to make Franklin Roosevelt the ONLY Democratic Candidate in the campaign of that year and the movement was so successful that Franklin took the nomination by an overwhelming vote . . . Therefore in that summer of 1932 the International Bankers had TWO Candidates running for the job of Chief Executive: Franklin Roosevelt in the United States and Adolph Hitler in Germany. And don’t try to laugh that off, it can’t be done.
About September 15th 1932, this author appeared at the Republican National Headquarters in the Palmer House in Chicago, to report for his usual duties with the Speakers Bureau of the National Committee. Talking with his superior on that first day, the superior said, "We are going to have a hard time in this campaign because we haven’t any money: Wall Street that usually gives a large contribution has turned us down flat. When I asked Why Wall Street wouldn’t help us since they usually contributed to both parties, the superior answered, "Well, for one thing they don’t like Hoover, but the main thing is they DO like Roosevelt" . . . So Wall Street had gone Democratic? Wasn’t that something for the Socialists and the Radicals to think about? In fact this Republican author thought about it and kept think about it until late in June 1934 he saw the connection between (1) The Big Bankers support of Franklin in 1932, (2)The Bank Holiday of 1933, (3) The buying of English gold for $35 an ounce, and (4) Lord Lothian’s declaration of June 1934, that a new war was brewing in Europe. It was then clear, that as in 1912 with the FIRST World War brewing in Europe the Big Bankers wanted Wilson in the White House and wanted America to finance their war; so in 1932 with the SECOND World War brewing in Europe they wanted Franklin in the White House, and again wanted America to finance the war. And that WAS HOW FRANKLIN CAME TO POWER.
But wouldn’t it be a joke on the Big Bankers if the money they invested in Franklin and Adolph, and a Second World War, should prove no better an investment than the money they spent on the First World War? The first war to destroy Kaiserism succeeded only in erecting a greater menace to their Balance of Power, Nazism. What then, if in a second war to destroy Nazism they erect a still greater menace, Communism over all Europe? Since Russia has struggled for two hundred years to get free access to the Mediterranean by way of the Dardanelles, she will miss the opportunity to achieve her dream of two hundred years? In the first world war Britain promised access to the Mediterranean as a bribe to get Russia as an ally, but later refused to keep her promise on the claim that her promise had been made to the Czar and not to a Communist Government. Today, with both the military and political power to get her passage-way into the Mediterranean, Russia most assuredly will not permit Britain or the Allies to prevent Russian domination of the entire Dardanelles-Balkan area. Thus strongly entrenched in the East, and with Communism already strong in Spain and France in the West, nothing can stop Russia’s domination of all Europe, once Germany has been destroyed. Thus the Second World War may end in a "Greater Menace" than did the first. And now back to ROOSEVELTISM.
Referring now again to the occasion when Theodore Roosevelt as Asst. Secy. of the Navy had ordered Admiral Dewey to Manila Bay and the battle which followed, it is well to remember that for a week before receiving this order, the Admiral had been in the British port of Hongkong, conferring with British Admirals as to the war they both knew would begin in a few days. It is therefore probable if not certain, that the Roosevelt order to proceed to Manila and to battle was received by Admiral Dewey BEFORE war had actually been declared. But it is CERTAIN that the order given, was sent without the consent of either the Secy. of the Navy or the President of the United States . . . Thus the giving of this order by Theodore Roosevelt was not merely a violation of his oath of office; it was a prophecy (later fulfilled) that he would be guilty of similar violations if and when the occasion demanded. And it may also be remembered in this connection that during the battle of Manila Bay, the BRITISH fleet was "standing by," to insure an Amcerican victory over Spain, and thus pave the way for the later theft of Morocco by Britain and France.
What then would be more natural than that having elected Woodrow Wilson (with the assistance of the first Roosevelt) Col. House should place in the Wilson Cabinet a second Roosevelt, as Asst. Secy. of the Navy? And what again would be more natural than that this second Roosevelt, in the office to which his family seemed to hold priorities, should follow the example of the first Roosevelt and so use his office, that later when President he would say to newspapermen, "As Asst. Secy. of the Navy, I broke enough laws to send me to the penitentiary for 999 years?" And if in thus breaking the law he was guilty of violating his oath of officer, were not these violations again a prophecy that he too would be guilty of similar violations if and when the occasion demanded?
Was it not the same Franklin who later said "The Constitution belongs to the days of the Horse and Buggy?" And during his first six years in office did not all bills sent to Congress bear his famous notation, "Must Pass?" And did he not order Congress to pass this legislation whether Constitutional or not? And when aboard the Prince of Wales (now sunk) he entered into a treaty with Churchill and Britain for the enforcement of the "Four Freedoms" (also now sunk) and did not this treaty by-pass the United States Senate, which alone can approve treaties with foreign nations? And when he gave Britain 50 American destroyers was not this also a violation of the Constitution and his oath of office?
But enough of these individual acts of violation, and let us proceed to certain acts and violations in which both Roosevelts participated . . .
THE PROOF OF THE PUDDING, —
At last dear patient Reader we come to the very heart of this story, as we consider a series of official acts so similar in nature and objective that they might have been performed by one Roosevelt instead of two; and might have occurred in a single administration instead of five . . . And a careful study of these official acts will not only show that they stemmed from the same source and drove toward the same objective, but will also show WHY the past forty years of American history has been "Forty Years of Roosevelt."
BOTH ROOSEVELTS HAD "INTERNATIONAL BANKER" Agents as SPONSORS
Theodore had Andrew Carnegie:
Franklin had E. Mandel House . . .
FOR SERVICES RENDERED IN THE NAVY DEPARTMENT
Theodore was made Governor of New York.
Franklin was made Governor of New York.
FOR SERVICES RENDERED AS GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK
Theodore was made Vice-President;
Franklin was made President.
WHEREVER YOU FIND A ROOSEVELT, YOU FIND SOME KIND OF "DEAL"
Theodore promised a "Square Deal";
Franklin promised a "New Deal."
THE ROOSEVELTS WERE THE FIRST PRESIDENTS TO INTRODUCE "CLASS HATREDS"
Theodore enraged the "disenfranchised masses" against the "Malefactors of great wealth"
Franklin enraged the "Forgotten Men" against the "Economic Royalists."
BOTH ROOSEVELTS NEEDED "THE MASSES" TO INSURE POLITICAL VICTORY
No appeal to the Masses can succeed until The Masses have reached the "proper figure" in both QUANTITY AND QUALITY: Which is to say "The Masses" must (a) contain enough votes; (b) must have the right Mental Attitude — a Radical or Revolutionary attitude.
When Theodore came to power there were more than a million unemployed persons in the country, but they were not "Masses" in the "proper" sense: So before Theodore could issue his "Class hatred" appeals, he must first produce in QUANTITY and QUALITY, THE
Necessary MASSES: And this is exactly what Theodore did for he brought to this country during his two administrations, nearly eight million Immigrants: Of which 90% came from the cellars and tenements of Southern Europe, Poland and South Russia . . . Thereafter America had its "Masses": In Quantity, eight millions of them: In Quality, Socialistic and Revolutionary as they had been in Europe . . . And almost immediately these new "Masses", thrilled by the attacks on the "Malefactors of Great Wealth", and by the promises of a "Square Deal", began that endless series of Strikes, Riots and Labor Disorders from which we still suffer.
FRANKLIN, having come to power, followed the example of his distinguished cousin and despite the Immigration Laws, has imported almost another eight million Immigrants; and from much the same countries and with the same Socialistic and Revolutionary inclinations . . . As these newer immigrants arrived they were employed at high wages in the C.W.A., the W.P.A., the P.W.A., the S.O.B., and all the other alphabetical catch-alls of the New Deal . . . And while so employed they were taught by their cousins, who had arrived earlier under Teddy, how to pass examinations for Naturalization (by the short-cut route) and how to vote most effectively (often) at all succeeding elections . . . With this second flood of immigrants we have had a second and more violent series of Strikes, Riots and Labor disorders; all these newer MASSES thrilled to the attacks upon the "Economic Royalists" and the New Deal promises of More and more Money, for Less and less work . . .
THE ROOSEVELTS WERE THE FIRST PRESIDENTS TO IMPORT AND PROMOTE "IMPERIALISM"
Some forty years before Theodore became President, France had lost the control of the Suez Canal which had been built by French money and French engineers; losing control of course to England. To off-set this loss, a French corporation raised the funds to built a Canal across the Isthmus of Panama and to that end purchased a Right-of-Way from Columbia, of which the South American State of Panama was then a province.
After twenty years of effort and failure, the French Corporation stopped work on the canal in 1899 but retained of course their Right-of-Way. Congress at once appointed a Commission to study the Canal matter, considering both the Panama route and a new route through Nicaragua . . . In November 1901 two months after Teddy had become President, the Canal Committee reported in favor of a canal by way of Nicaragua, and as later appeared, this route was favored by a Majority of the Engineers and a majority of the United States Senate. But Theodore and his friends wanted a canal by way of Panama, and thereby hangs a tale.
When in 1899 the French Corporation learned that the United States was considering a Canal through Nicaragua, they offered to sell their Right-of-Way through Panama for the reported sum of four million dollars. It was also reported that a New York group headed by a Mr. Cromwell bought the French Righ-of-Way for the said four million dollars, and at once set to work to persuade Congress to drop the Nicaragua route and build the Canal by way of Panama . . . Thus in 1902 Teddy sent some "must legislation" to Congress, authorizing a Canal through Panama and also authorizing the Government to pay $40,000,000 for the French Right of Way, which Teddy’s friend, Mr. Cromwell had reportedly bought for four million dollars. Of course the matter became a public scandal for some weeks, but then as later, the public decided that anything a Roosevelt does is all right and so the matter was soon forgotten. Some months later Congress offered Columbia a Treaty involving the Panama route but the Columbian Congress refused to ratify the Treaty . . . Thereupon Mr. Cromwell went to Panama, and picking up a Panama politician named Bunau-Varilla, a treaty was signed between the United States and the province of Panama for the building of a Canal. Obviously, Panama had no more right to enter into such a Treaty without the consent of Columbia than the State of Texas would have to sign a treaty with Germany, without the consent of the United States Government: Nevertheless the Treaty WAS signed, and of course, was immediately repudiated by Columbia. But Cromwell and his friend in Washington had foreseen this eventuality and prepared for it: So at once a Revolution was begun in Panama, and Panama seceded from Columbia and announced its Independence . . . Of course the Roosevelt Government recognized the Independence of Panama, but Columbia didn’t: So Columbia sent an army and navy to put down the Panama rebellion, just as Lincoln sent forces to put down the Southern Rebellion after the attack on Fort Sumpter. But the Columbian army and navy never reached Panama, because THEODORE SENT AN AMERICAN ARMY AND NAVY to drive the Columbians home. In brief, Teddy permitted Cromwell to bribe Panama into revolution, then used our army and navy to sustain that revolution and rob a sister Republic of its best province. Not even England or a Hitler was ever guilty of a ranker piece of aggression than this, but being a Roosevelt, he got away with it.
Twelve years later while Secretary of State, William J. Bryan declared this robber of Columbia a crime that Latin America would never forget, and under Bryan’s persuasion, Congress voted Twenty-five Million dollars to Columbia, as a partial payment for that crime: And to his dying day, Teddy never forgave Bryan for his expose. Though in 1916, the American Government apologized to Columbia for the crime committed by our Government under Teddy, the states of Central and South America never forgave us and began calling the United States, "The Colossus of the North," a title they still give us.
In 1904, one year after the theft of Panama, the states of Latin America called a conference at Havana Cuba, to discuss plans for their mutual protection. Did Teddy send them the message of a "Good-Neighbor?" He did not: To the contrary his message said in effect, that so long as Central and South America did whatever the United States wanted them to do, they would be let alone but if they ever got out of line, Teddy or someone would be down their with a big stick. These were neither the words nor the acts of a "Good Neighbor" nor of a President of a democracy. They were the words and acts of an American Dictator, directed against the Latin States of the Western Hemisphere; words and acts that forced our country OUT of the path of "Splendid Isolation" and into the paths of Empire and Imperialism. As to FRANKLIN, we have had two attempts at Imperialism, both of which are still in the "incubator" stage, and only the gods know what they will look like when they hatch: The first attempt was the startling statement of Asst. Secy. of State, Sumner Welles, who in 1938 said to the World, including Central and South America, "that the United States regards Latin America as OUR trade province, and ordering all other nations to take notice thereof." This declaration was more than a reaffirmation of the Monroe Doctrine: it was a blunt notice to the States of Latin America that thereafter "The Colossus of the North", would supervise their Trad relations with other nations, willy nilly: And the events of the past four years have fulfilled the prophecy of the Welles’ declaration.
FRANKLIN’S second venture in Imperialism was the "Atlantic Charter," now temporarily submerged. In explaining the "Charter" both Franklin and Churchill declared "that after the War, they would force their Four Freedoms upon all the world," also willy nilly . . . Here again is the attitude of a Dictator: rather than that of a democratic President elected by the votes of a free people. Nevertheless, when Russia "Colonizes" Europe, China and Japan have come to terms in the Orient, and England has resumed her former policies in the Empire and Africa, it will be interesting to see what Franklin does with his "Four Freedoms" in what’s left of the world . . . As an experiment, he might even try them out here in America.
THE ROOSEVELTS ATTACK BIG BUSINESS
For years Theodore, with his Big Stick as a lance, rode forth to attack the Big Corporations; like some modern Don Quixote riding against the Wind Mills. But as the records show, there were three thousand Big Corporations when he took office, and TEN thousand when he left it. Moreover it was by his "silent treatment" that the United States Steel Corporation was able to take over its greatest competitor, The Tennessee Coal and Iron Company.
Franklin also began his career as a Don Quixote by denouncing Big Business and the Economic Royalists, but again as the records show, it was the Big banks that swallowed the Little banks after the Bank Holiday of 1933, and BIG business that swallowed LITTLE business as a result of the N.R.(?).
BLOOD WILL TELL
Theodore, during the campaign of 1912, denounced President Taft in language so vile and vicious that even a Tammany politician must have heard it with awe and jealousy. Perhaps Teddy learned this language while visiting in London where such language is known as "Billingsgate."
Franklin’s attacks on those who disagreed with him are both too well remembered and too numerous to need citation here.
THE ROOSEVELTS SEND FORTH THE NAVY
Theodore sends an American Fleet to cruise in Japanese waters, as evidence of a naval strength that might be used should Japan interfere with Britain’s control of China . . .
Franklin sends an America Fleet into the Pacific with orders to "Shoot on Sight," and ONE WEEK before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
THE NAVAL ROOSEVELTS WEAKEN THE ARMY
Theodore gave evidence of a growing dictator complex when early in his first administration he demanded that Congress set up a General Staff for the Army. From the days of Washington to Theodore, promotions in the Army had been made from WITHIN the Army, and were determined by Seniority, Fitness and Experience . . . But Theodore wanted to make these promotions and to promote men who could be depended upon to play his game of Imperialism, whether they had or didn’t have Seniority, Fitness and Experience. Thus he promoted a Texas Physician to be Chief of Staff, when the Army experience of this Dr. Wood had been limited to that fake war against Spain, which Teddy had won almost singlehanded.
When the Bill for the General Staff was before Congress, Maj. Gen. Nelson A. Miles, then Chief of Staff, a West Point Graduate and a veteran of forty years of distinguished service in the Army, denounced the Bill as certain to undermine the morale of the Army itself, as it would certainly undermine the morale of the Officers of the Army. In stating his case Gen. Miles used the mild and dignified language that one would expect from "An officer and a gentleman" . . . But when Teddy heard of this speech of Gen. Miles, Teddy’s Big Stick, big teeth and big voice all went into action at the same time, and the language Teddy used in denouncing the General, was not the language of "An officer and a gentleman" but more "Billingsgate," setting a record for presidential viciousness not equalled before or since. The attack broke both the heart and the health of General Miles, and did undermine the morale of the Army. And it all happened because Teddy had a Plan for Empire and his Plan required that the General Staff of the Army should be hand-picked by Teddy, so that the conduct of this General Staff could be kept secret from Congress and the nation, under the pretense of Military Necessity.
Franklin and the General Staff . . . Ask Congressman Martin Dies why Gen. Mahlon Craig was removed as Chief of the General Staff and replaced by General Marshall? And Gen. Craig was the most brilliant tactician the nation had produced since Gen. Robert E. Lee . . . And why was the brilliant McArthur hidden away in the far Pacific when according to the Administration, Germany was the chief enemy to be destroyed?
THE ROOSEVELTS AND THE CIVIL SERVICE
Theodore adds 26,000 to the Civil Service.
Franklin adds 3,000,000.

Theodore’s closest advisors were Englishmen.
Franklin’s are Englishmen (Laske & Keynes).
Theodore scorns the Constitution.
Franklin scorns the Constitution.
THE SUPREME COURT
Theodore "slurs" the Supreme Court.
Franklin "packs" it.
Theodore wrecks the Republican Party with the Bull Moose Party.
Franklin wrecks the Democratic Party with the New Deal Party.
Theodore stops "free speech" (Delevan Smith and the Indianapolis News).
Franklin stops "free speech" as dozens of Commentators are driven from the Radio.
FOREIGN ENTANGLEMENTS AGAIN
Theodore enters into Reciprocal Trade Treaties with all nations of Europe EXCEPT Germany, for purpose of blockade.
Franklin enters into Reciprocal Trade Treaties with all nations of Europe EXCEPT Germany, and for the same purpose.
While this list might be continued indefinitely, enough has been cited to show that the "similar" acts, words and attitudes of the two famous cousins were neither occasional nor accidental, but were perennial and "Planned that way" . . . Moreover there runs throughout the entire list a "continuity and objectivity" which prove that the acts therein contained were not planned by the American Congress or people, but WERE planned by way by an ALIEN and sinister power. Yet, in concluding this part of the story it is only fair to state that nothing contained in this booklet is intended to impugn the honesty or sincerity of either Roosevelt. While the author believes that both men desired the World Government as planned by the International Bankers, he also believes that both Roosevelts regarded this World State NOT as a means to financial domination but as the only possible method by which peace and prosperity could be maintained throughout the world.
And if the original premise is true, that War and its resultant poverty stems from "Nationalism," then it was at least logical to believe "Nationalism" must be destroyed by "Internationalism."
Indeed it is the very sincerity of those who advocate a "World State" or "Union Now," that makes these Utopian Theorists so dangerous; for by their very Sincerity they breed sincerity in others.
Mathew Arnold said: "Religion is Morality touched with emotion," and we may add that Internationalism can become a religion when the emotions of the people have been sufficiently touched by the sincerity of its advocates. Nor can we safely discount the fact that there are in America today perhaps ten million persons (New Dealers) who DO believe in Internationalism and "Union Now," as a result of the sincerity of Franklin Roosevelt, and "One World" Willkie.
In discussing "Union Now" the distinguished journalist Mr. Albert J. Nock said, "One has to be realistic about al this; and the reader should remember that while the FIRST law of human conduct is Self-Preservation, the SECOND law is exploitation; and the operation of the second law is as powerful and invariable as the first. And Man’s implicit obedience to these laws has not once wavered in six thousand years of recorded history" . . . Which is to say that stronger than any laws which might be promulgated by "Union Now" or any other confederation of Nations would be these primary laws of nature, Self-Preservation and the desire for Exploitation. For example how would these primary laws of nature affect a Union between Great Britain and the United States, as now advocated by Mr. Clarence Streit? At the very moment of Union these two primary laws of nature would meet in a head-on collision. For the Traditional Policy of America has ever been the policy of Self-Preservation, or as the friends of Washington called it, the policy of Splendid Isolation, the policy of Live and Let Live. To the contrary, the traditional policy of Great Britain has ever been the Policy of Exploitation; even as recently as ten months ago, Prime Minister Churchill reaffirmed that policy of exploitation when he said, "The British Empire was built by the sword and will be maintained by the sword." Mr. Nock is correct: "We SHOULD be realists about all this," realistic enough to realize that if at this very moment when American men, money and machines are preserving the British Empire, the Government of that Empire is undermining American interests all over the world; what then may we expect from "Union Now With Britain" when AFTER the War, British and American Trade Interests begin to clash all over the world?
But further and to the same effect, even if it were possible for the one hundred and eighty million people of England and America to work in harmony for the exploitation of the world, what will be the attitude of the other two billions of people of the other hundred nations, as to our British-American plan for exploitation? Will they regard it as anything less or other than "Aggression?" Of course not, for that is exactly what it will be. In brief, while the two great "Democracies" are fighting to destroy Aggression, statesmen in both countries are planning a greater Aggression on a global scale. And even if these statesmen DO believe that their plan will bring peace and prosperity to the whole world, their plan is foredoomed to failure, for there yet remains that FIRST law of nature, the law of Self-preservation which involving the right of self-determination will ultimately unite the two billion people in other nations to oppose the "best laid schemes of Mice and Men," Britain and America.
For the first one hundred and ten years of our history we lived in and by our traditional policy of Non-Aggression, and because we were not Aggressors we held through that long period, the trust and admiration of all the nations in the world — all save one, Great Britain.
But when at last under Theodore Roosevelt we deserted our traditional policy and became Aggressors, we began that "Forty Years of Roosevelt" which has left us today with the trust and admiration of only ONE nation in all the world — Great Britain. And if any reader can find comfort in Great Britain’s present friendship, he will doubtless still believe in Santa Claus and in the Four Freedoms for India, Africa and the United States.
TO FARMERS AND SMALL BUSINESSMEN
The decision to make this direct appeal to Farmers, and the Small-Town Merchants dependent upon farmer-trade, was founded upon one FACT and one HOPE: The FACT, that the agricultural areas have been untouched and unpolluted by the flood of Aliens, which sweeping in from Europe and filling our great cities with racketeers and gangsters, strike-makers and strike-breakers, has been the source of the New Deal’s margin of victory in every political campaign since 1932. Having been untouched and unpolluted by this Alien flood, our agricultural areas have also escaped that flood of Alien-"isms" which now endangers our entire economic-political system. Because of the FACT that the agricultural areas are now the Last Frontier, the last remaining refuge of pure and militant Americanism, there is ground for the HOPE that these areas so often betrayed and plundered in times past will now resolve to be plundered and betrayed no more, and will in this 1944 campaign blot out all party and sectional lines and unite to destroy the New Deal and all of its Alien "isms."
Believing that this is exactly what WILL happen, the author hereby offers the Farmer and their associated Businessmen some factual weapons to be used against the New Deal in the several agricultural districts . . .
In 1939 our leading American Economist Dr. Virgil Jordan said, "For the past eight years this nation has been the victim of a well-planned conspiracy," a conspiracy to destroy free-government and free-enterprise and to establish in their stead a Socialist government and a Regimented economy. Since the past twelve years and particularly the past three years have shown that Dr. Jordan was eminently correct, and since we are further aware that this conspiracy was "well-planned" by International Bankers, we should here ask and answer the question, "against what part of our American system would the Internationalists first direct their attack? The answer should be quickly apparent–"Against that part of our American system upon which all other parts depend, the "Agricultural Industry" — the Foundation of our American system. Even a schoolboy is aware that from the Farmer comes the nation’s food and most of the raw materials used by urban industry; but even some Harvard and Columbia Professors fail to realize that this food and raw-materials is less than half of the Farmer’s contribution to national prosperity . . . For the Farmer not only SELLS, he also BUYS, and it is the Farmer’s purchases of shoes, clothing, furniture, household utensils, agricultural machinery, trucks and cars that make possible nearly one-half of the employment shared by city workers.
Let the Farmers stage a selling-strike for six months, and what happens to the food and raw-material supplies of city dwellers and city industries? Let the Farmers sage a buying-strike for six months, and what happens to city industries and to the workers there employed? Moreover since the Farmers are largely self-dependent and self-sustaining they could stage such strikes if they so desired . . . Again and to the same effect, it is the Farmer’s products going TO City markets and the Farmer’s purchases coming FROM City factories, that five our Railroads and Transportation Companies 70% of their business. Let the Farmers stop buying, selling and shipping for six months and what happens to our Transportation Companies and to the Stock and Bond holders in these companies, including Colleges, Churches and Hospitals?
Thus upon the solvency of the American Farmers depends (1) our food, (2) our raw-materials, (3) the income of half of the nation’s workers, (4) the solvency of industry, (5) the solvency of our transportation system, and (6) the value of all securities, stock and bonds issued by our industrial and transportation corporations. It is therefore clear beyond argument that to destroy the solvency of the American Farmers is to guarantee the destruction of our entire economic structure. And deny it though they may, this destruction of our economic system is exactly what the Internationalists have planned for until our Free-enterprise system IS destroyed, the cannot establish their Socialistic system of Regimented Economy.
Clearly then the Internationalists have chosen wisely when they direct their first attack against the Foundation of our American system—the solvency of the American Farmer.
When Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky set up their Communist Dictatorship in Russia, they quickly won the support of the urban population and seemed well on their way to the complete Communization of all Russia. But after three years of success they were stopped and stopped cold by the Farmers and Land-owners of the nation who refused to surrender their land or their products to the Dictators. Note now the predicament of our good friend Stalin; he could not complete his plan to communize all Russia unless he could remove the opposition of these Farmers, Land-owners and Small Businessmen — these so-called Kulaks. As Lincoln had said in 1860, "This nation cannot continue half-slave and half-free," so Stalin could later say "My plan for the regimentation of Russia cannot succeed when half of the nation is Communist and the other half Capitalist." And since the Russian Kulaks would neither cooperate with nor surrender to Stalin, he solved his problem by the simple but effective method of killing ten million Farmers and deporting another ten million to Mongolia. Though the method thus employed by our good friend Stalin was brutal beyond description, it is nevertheless true that the communization of Russia could never have been achieved without the removal of these twenty million Farmers and Small Tradesmen . . . When therefore the Internationalists who admittedly financed Lenin and Stalin to power in Russia, began their plan to destroy our American Economic System and replace it with a Communist system, they were well aware that here, as in Russia, their plan would be resisted by Farmers and Small Businessmen, and that until this opposition could be removed their plan could not proceed.
But the Internationalists also realized that it would not be necessary to kill or deport the American Farmers and Kulaks; they could be disposed of just as completely and effectively by a LEGAL method — by Bankruptcy. And that by bankrupting the American Farmer they could end both his independence and his contributions to the national welfare. To achieve this end the International Bankers in May 1920 began their long-range-plan which is still in effect and which will certainly and completely succeed should the 1944 election again return the New Dealers to power.
It was on that date, May 18th, 1920, that the International Bankers made their first move toward the destruction of the American Farmers – the move being the issuance of an order to the Federal Reserve Banks to raise the Re-discount rates to the small banks, (the country banks of the nation), from 2% to 8%. The trick involved in this secret order may be explained as follows" If a country bank loaned $1000 to a Farmer on a promissory note bearing 6% interest, and thereafter the small bank needed additional funds, the small bank could take the Farmer’s note and collateral to a Federal Reserve Bank where the Farmer’s note would be re-discounted at 2% and $1000 in cash handed to the country banker. It will be seen that by this transaction the country bank made 4% on its loan to the Farmer, the other 2% called for in the Farmer’s note having been paid to the Federal Reserve Bank as a re-discount. So long as country banks could take the notes and collateral of Farmers and Small-town Merchants, and re-discount them for 2%, the country banks would always be able to get the funds needed in their business. But when the re-discount rate was raised from 2% to 8%, as by the order issued on May 18th 1920, the country banker could no longer get additional funds from the Federal Reserve Bank. For how long could a country bank stay in business if it loaned money to Farmers at 6% interest and then had to pay 8% interest to the Federal Reserve Bank? Obviously it couldn’t be done, and when the order raising the re-discount rate from 2% to 8% took effect the country banker could no longer lend any money at all to Farmers and Small-town Merchants. Worse yet, the country banker had to call in or refuse to extend loans already made.
When this above described order was being debated at a secret conference of Federal Reserve Bankers, Mr. John Skelton Williams was Comptroller of the Currency – one of the most important offices in the Federal Government; and hearing that this secret order was being considered by the Deflation Committee of the American Bankers Association, he did everything in his power to prevent its passage (see Congressional Record, May 2, 1933). In relating his efforts to the late John A. Simpson, Mr. Williams said, "I told the other members of the Board, "Do you know that this will break lots of little country banks?" They cold-bloodedly answered me, "THEY OUGHT TO BREAK, THERE ARE TOO MANY OF THEM." I then told them, "Don’t you know it is going to ruin lots of farmers?" and they cold-bloodedly replied to me, "THEY OUGHT TO BE RUINED, THEY ARE GETTING SO PROSPEROUS THEY WON’T WORK."
From this testimony by the Comptroller of Currency, as reported in the Congressional Record (Volume 64, Part V, 67th Congress, Fourth Session) and from events which immediately followed this secret conference of bankers, it is clear that the Committee which passed this resolution knew that a panic would follow, bringing ruin to Farmers and local banks throughout the country; in other words "they had planned it that way."
As a result this first attack against the Agricultural areas, came the Farmers’ Panic of 1921, and as a result of this panic 5,000 country banks were closed, 15,000 small-town Merchants failed in business, the money and savings of the 50 million people living in rural areas was drained out of the country and INTO the big cities; and 5 million Farmers were so completely ruined that to this day 80% of them have not recovered solvency. And lest the Reader think that this was the only direct attack on the American Farmer let me cite a similar incident occurring sometime earlier; and I now quote from a letter sent by the Big Bankers to their agents throughout the nation. "We authorize our loan agents in the Western States to loan our funds on real estate to fall due on September 1, 1894; we will not renew our loans under any consideration. On September 1st we will demand our money, and (when the Farmers cannot pay) we will foreclose and become mortgagees in possession. We can take two-thirds of the farms west of the Mississippi, and thousands of them east of the great Mississippi as well, at our own price. We may as well own three-fourths of the farms of the West and the money of the country. Then the farmers will become tenants as in England. After September 1st, the interest we receive on coupons will be accumulated. We will not lend any of our funds after that date, as we can make more money by withholding our interest income."
When it is remembered that between the dates mentioned in this secret letter, the letter having been written September 1891 and to take effect on and after September 1894, that between these dates the International Bankers would spring their "1893 Panic" which would spread wreck and ruin throughout the agricultural areas, it is clear why the Big Bankers knew as stated in their letter, that when the Farmer’s notes bell due in 1894 the Farmer would be unable to pay. Thereafter as the secret letter implied our American Farmers could either go out of business or become tenants as in England. As a matter of fact they did both. . .
While the two incidents just cited are so well documented in Congressional Records as to be beyond denial they both occurred prior to the New Deal tragedy, so we will return to events of more recent occurrence and in which the New Deal did play a part.
The next attack of the Internationalists against the American Farmer began in 1930 and continued until 1934, when the Internationalists caused Russian farm products to be dumped on the European market and sold for less than the cost of production and transportation. By this stroke they drove down farm prices in America and set in motion a new series of bank and business failures in the farm areas.
The next attack by the Internationalists came in March 1933, when by removal of their gold deposits from America to England they closed every bank in the nation. And when ten days later one-half of these banks were permitted to re-open, 80% of the banks that were kept closed were banks LOCATED IN AGRICULTURAL AREAS. And again a succession of business failures swept through the farm areas.
Finally came the Regimentation Era of 1941-44. Here, under the pretence of war-time necessity, farm prices were "stabilized" at less than parity rates; farm sales were restricted by O.P.A. regimentation, and the purchase of farm machinery, trucks and tires made almost impossible. And again a series of failures swept through the farm areas and is still sweeping. To these specific incidents of direct attacks on the solvency of the Farmers, Bankers and Small Merchants of the rural districts, may be added the over-all attack made for twelve years past by the New Deal, in which our Tariff Laws have been nullified and evaded to the end, that billions of dollars worth of foreign agricultural products have been imported into the United States thus robbing the American Farmer of his own and only market.
Space will not permit any further citation of similar evidence to prove that the Farmers and the Small-town Merchants are the American "Kulaks" and slated for destruction by the Internationalists and their New Deal accomplices.
But before leaving the subject, and lest what is here written may be to some extent discounted as the opinion of a Republican writer, let me know quote from a New Deal authority, a New Deal Commentator and Publicist who as every newspaperman in Washington will testify is a trusted spokesman for the New Deal Administration. This authoritative spokesman is a Mr. J. Franklin Carter, who in the press and on the radio is known as Jay Franklin. He has just published a book entitled "For what we are about to receive," and in this book he explains in a most vivid and vicious fashion what he and the New Dealers think of the American Farmer. As quoted in the public press of Sunday, March 26th, 1944, Mr. Franklin said: "The farmer has arrogated to himself all virtue and all knowledge. He has voted against progress and civilization, against the city, against science, against art. He has made and unmade presidents in the image of Main Street. He has exhausted our soil, as he has exhausted our treasury if given half a chance. he is the great obstacle to human progress, the great threat to political stability. Sooner or later, we shall discover, as England and Soviet Russia discovered, that the landed proprietor, and the Kulak, is simply so much mud on the paths of progress and must be swept aside if society is to advance. These are harsh words, but they are justified. The American farmer as a political institution is a danger or our civilization. Some day, some leader of some party will be compelled to rouse the people against the farmer and crush im as an obstacle to the national welfare, as he has been crushed in every nation and age which has experienced his predominance. The fact that it is good politics now to help the farmer is going to make it better politics in the future to injure him."
Here then Ladies and Gentlemen of the American Farm you have been brought before the Court of the "Internationalist" New Dealers, and have heard the charge of the New Deal Prosecutor, and his demand for your extinction. There now remains but one question for your decision — will you accept a verdict of guilty passed by this New Deal Court or will you appeal your case to the highest Court in this land — the Ballot-Box of the coming November election?
TO ORGANIZED LABOR
Some years ago when the Labor Press of the nation was shouting for joy over the passage of the Wages and Hours Bill, this author in a Radio address warned the members of all labor organizations that the day might come when they would regret the passage of this bill which they were then so vociferously applauding. It was explained in that Radio address that any law affecting the contractual relations of two or more parties must be equally binding upon all parties, else it would be declared unconstitutional as "Class Legislation"; in other words, that a law which could compel an employer to pay a specified wage for a specified period of labor, could also be used to compel a workman to work for a specified wage and for a specified number of hours. And in that same address I warned the Labor Unions that in the event we entered the European war (which then seemed highly probable), Labor might find itself regimented as thoroughly and certainly as industry. As to that prophecy it may now be mentioned that during the past year the Government has taken its first step toward the regimentation of Labor and the day has already come when workmen are told that they must work in those places and for those wages and hours as decreed by the Government; nor can a workman change his place of work without a Government permit even when a better wage is offered elsewhere.
It is true that at the present moment wages are so far above normal that the restrictions just mentioned have provoked little resistance. But Labor should remember that in this said regimentation a precedent has been established, so that if in later years a depression should sweep the country and wages fall sharply, the Government could on the precedent recently established, compel Labor to then work in such place and for such wages as the Government might decree, even if the cost of living had not fallen along with wages.
The author is well aware that the American workman like every other American, seldom looks beyond the present hour, but if the workman who reads this booklet happens to have a more intelligent attitude toward reality, he may conclude that if the New Deal Administration will resort to the regimentation of Labor on the eve of an election in which the New Deal must count heavily on the Labor vote; that later when the New Deal is more perfectly entrenched and no longer needs the votes of Labor, the regimentation of Labor might be as completely effected as in Russia or Germany. At any rate, Ladies and Gentlemen of Labor, you are warned to "Look Before You Leap": Look into the hidden corners of this New Deal "Internationalist" Plan — before you leap to the Ballot-Box to vote for an extension of New Deal Regimentation.
(Author’s Note — The following pages were first published as an appeal to the Republican National Convention of 1911. Though that Convention is now a matter of history, the subject matter of the following pages is just as important to the people of the United States as it was for the Delegates of the 1911 Convention: Indeed, the people of this nation are NOW a National Convention, or better still, our people are NOW the Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, called and sworn to hear and duly try the Case of American Nationalism vs New Deal Internationalism. . . UPON THE VERDICT OF THIS JURY, DEPENDS THE FUTURE FATE OR FORTUNE OF THIS NATION. . . As you NOW prepare to vote in November, REMEMBER, — You are NOT voting for one Candidate against another: You ARE voting to decide whether our people shall recover their Constitutional Liberties, including the Right of Free Enterprise; Or, whether these liberties shall be completely destroyed by the Alien INTERNATIONALISM, which for the past twelve years has been promoted by the New Deal Bureaucrats . . . THIS, and this ONLY, is the on ISSUE IN THE 1944 Presidential Campaign. . .)
TO THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION
About one hundred and seventy years ago, Delegates had gathered in Convention, not to nominate a candidate for President but to decide the ONE great question then before the American people. To wit: Whether the people of this country should longer endure the tyranny of a British Dictator; Or, rebel against the tyranny and recover at whatever cost the freedom they had enjoyed prior to the passage of the Trade Acts.
These Trade Acts and the Stamp Act, forced through Parliament by the British International Bankers, had not only destroyed the infant industries of the American Colonies, had not only destroyed the foreign trade of the colonies, had not only destroyed their Colonial monetary system, by the time of the Convention above referred to, had convinced the Colonies that soon their personal and political liberties would meet the same fate as had their industrial and commercial interests. . .
During the early days of this Convention, the Delegates reviewed the unparalleled progress which they and their fathers had achieved since the days of Plymouth Rock and Jamestown. A progress made possible by reason of their Free Money, and their unrestricted trade with foreign nations. . . They were thus unanimous in their opinions, both as to the reason for Colonial progress, and as to the cause for its complete cessation. But for a time the Delegates were NOT unanimous as to whether they dared assume the risk of rebellion against the strongest power on earth, Mother England. . .
It was then that Patrick Henry immortalized this Convention with the words no true American will ever forget, "I know not what course others may pursue, but as for me, give me liberty of give me death:. . . Perhaps not even Patrick Henry was then aware of it, but the issue then confronting that Convention was contained in those two words, LIBERTY or Death . . . The questions as to the whether the rebellion should be undertaken, and if begun, How it could be financed and armed and carried to success — these questions that for days prevented a unanimous decision, were not the real issue before that Convention. That real Issue, and the only Issue then confronting the nations was, as Patrick Henry had said, the Issue of Liberty of Death...
And so today, Gentlemen and Ladies of this Republican Convention, I remind you of that Immortal speech of Patrick Henry, as a fitting preface to a declaration that your constituents and your country will never permit you to forget, if you fail to heed its warning and implications; for today, for a second time, the people of this nation demand, and demand from YOU, a Declaration of Independence. . . In brief, Ladies and Gentlemen of this Republican Convention, it may be said of you as was said of that Convention immortalized by Patrick Henry — "You are not gathered here to nominate a Candidate for President. That is a matter of secondary importance . . .The matter of Primary importance, the ONE great Issue to be decided by this Convention is the same as that which confronted the Convention immortalized by Patrick Henry. To Wit: Shall the people of this country longer endure the tyranny of an International Banker Dictatorship; OR, regain at whatever cost, the Freedom we enjoyed prior to the "Trade" and "Stamp Acts" of the New Deal Administration? . . .
For the first time since that Convention of 170 years ago, the people of this country face the danger of losing both their economic and political freedom; a danger more imminent and menacing that that which confronted the nation at Valley Forge or prior to the battle of Gettysburg . . . Today we have come to the end of a Road; the road our fathers followed for 150 years — or the road over which we have been driven for twelve years past by the New Deal Dictators. Which Road shall end with this coming election, it is now in your hands to decide. But remember, Ladies and Gentlemen, and reflect, you cannot leave it to some Candidate to decide which road we shall hereafter follow. Delegates of this Convention must choose that Road; and then and thereafter, as a matter of secondary importance, select a Candidate who will follow that Road. . .
Many delegates now present will recall the two-day battle within the Platform Committee at the Philadelphia Convention of 1940, where the issue there debated was whether the committee should endorse Intervention of Non-intervention. You will also recall that the final decision was a compromise, and being a compromise, made it possible for Wendel Wilkie to grab the nomination . . . Every delegate here present, and every citizen in this country now knows, that had that Committee reported a platform opposed to Intervention, some real Republican and real American would have been nominated; and later overwhelmingly elected by that 90% of our people, which even the New Deal candidate admitted, was unalterably opposed to intervention.
Assuming that the delegates to that Philadelphia convention were men and women of influence in their respective communities; that they were men and women of more than average insight and ability and therefore keenly aware of the overwhelming sentiment against Intervention — How did it happen that these men accepted a "compromise" Platform, when they must have know that 90% of their constituents were demanding a clear-cut declaration against intervention?
Were certain Delegates (as was later charged) bribed and bought by the International Banker friends of Wendel Wilkie? No, this was NOT the reason for the Convention’s approval of the Platform Committee’s Compromise Report; for the International Bankers did not appear on the Convention floor, until following the fourth ballot for the nomination of a Candidate for President. The "compromise" report of the Platform Committee was approved by the Convention, because three-fourths of the Convention never heard the Report. Knew not and cared not what it contained; they were too busy trading, scheming and blocking, to further the interests of their favorite candidate.... In plain language, they forgot that millions of Americans were literally on their knees praying that out of that Convention would come a clear-cut platform pledged to Peace; forgot, that because of their careless indifference thousands of American boys would later die on foreign fields; forgot that because they were more interested in men than in principles, our nation would later stand as it stands today, just one short step, just one election, from complete enslavement by those International Bankers, who for 12 years past have "Planned it that way". . . And these, Ladies and Gentlemen of this Convention are not words of rhetoric nor politics; they are words that tell the story of that great American tragedy, on that day in Philadelphia, when Republican Delegates accepted a platform upon which a New Dealer disguised as a Republican could lead the Party to defeat, and lead the nation to this hour of impending disaster wherein we stand.
If it shall be said in defense of the 1940 Convention that its Delegates Could not possibly foresee the tragic results of centering their interest upon a Candidate rather than upon a platform; and that they believed "It can’t happen here" — no such defense can ever be offered for the Convention of 1944: For those "tragic results that began in 1940 are still with us and grow more deadly with every hour . . . And the Delegates to this Convention know, that "It has happened here," that it is still happening here, and that in the Montgomery Ward affair the Delegates and the Nation have been given a preview of MORE that will happen here, should this Republican Convention fail to produce a Platform and a Candidate pledged to the destruction of New Deal Internationalism and to all that that term involves. . . To the surprise of many, the Republican Party outlived its tragic mistake of 1940, but it will NOT outlive a second and similar mistake. For out of the "blood and tears" of the past four years, our people have learned the difference between a Government of Laws and a Government of men; between Freedom under the Constitution, and Regimentation under power drunk bureaucrats; between the policies of a "Nationalist" Washington and the policies of an Inter-nationalist Roosevelt. . .
Thus whereas in 1940 our people looked to a Republican Convention with "hope and a prayer," they now watch this Republican Convention with "suspicion and a Demand". . . This time they will NOT accept a "compromise" platform, nor will they support an Inter-nationalist Candidate. . .
It is true that in the 1940 campaign the difference between Intervention and Non-intervention was not clearly grasped by millions of our voters, for both Willkie and Roosevelt deliberately beclouded that issue: It is further true that "Intervention" is no longer an issue; we are in this war and our people are determined to win it as quickly and as completely as possible regardless of what Party is in power. But (and let the Delegates heed this warning) today our voters are NOT uncertain as to the main issue: INTERNATIONALISM is the issue and the ONLY issue in this campaign. Nor will any candidate, Republican or New Deal be able or permitted to confuse THIS issue. For whereas the term "Internationalism" was dismissed as a pet phrase of the so-called Isolationists, the majority of our voters now know that Internationalism is, as described in the foregoing pages of this book, an International plot by International Bankers, wherein by Wars and Revolutions, Panics and Depressions, Reciprocal Trade Treaties and Union Now, economic chaos will cover the earth, and thus afford the International Banker the opportunity to stand forth with his 30 billions in Gold, not as the Saviour of mankind, but AS THE RULER OF A WORLD EMPIRE. . .
In this connection, and fearing the Delegate has not read the "evidence" of an International Conspiracy as related in preceding pages, the author here submits some other "evidence" presented by several of the greatest Bankers of modern times: In March 1930, the British government frightened by the recent maneuvers of the London International Bankers, appointed a Committee to investigate the said maneuvers, with Rt. Hon. Lord Macmillan as Chairman: Called before this Committee was the greatest of all International Bankers, Montague Norman, Governor of the Bank of England . . . The following questions and answers were recorded.
Lord Macmillan: It is true is it not, that the volume of credit in this country is very largely in your hands?
Mr. Norman: Yes, I think it is. . .
Lord Macmillan: And it is your view that the consequences of restricting credit in England, unfortunate as it may prove to be, is outweighed by the advantages you obtain, in the maintenance of your International position?
Mr. Norman: Yes, that is true. . .
Even a Delegate from New York or Brooklyn should be able to grasp the significance of the answers here given by Mr. Norman, for he frankly admitted that he had it in his power to extend or limit or cut off entirely the credit upon which the business of Great Britain depended; and further and more important still, that he would restrict that vital credit regardless of the unfortunate consequences that would follow, whenever such restriction was necessary in order to strengthen his INTERNATIONAL position; In other words, this greatest of International bankers and Governor of the greatest of International Banks, admitted that he would imperil the business and industry of all Britain, in order to strengthen his International position . . . When the reader and Delegate remembers that Mr. Norman was called before this Committee, because at that very moment Mr. Norman was busy setting up the International Settlements (outside England, at Basle, Switzerland), — setting up in fact the FIRST "world" Bank, the reader or Delegate will understand why the British government called Mr. Norman before its committee, and why the Government rightly feared this new "WORLD" Bank, the policies of which would not only be "International" rather than British, but would also, as Mr. Norman admitted, imperil the economic life of Britain, whenever its "International" Plans so required. . .
Exactly 34 days later, Mr. Norman held a meeting of the directors of his WORLD bank in Brussels, Belgium, and among those present were Mr. McGarrah of New York City, who acted as Presiding officer, and Mr. Thos. Lamont of the J.P. Morgan & Co., the erstwhile supporter of Mr. Wendell Willkie. . . In a brief address to his assembled co-workers Mr. Norman said, in effect, "the formation of a World CENTRAL Bank is in may ways the climax of our efforts. . . Does the gentle Delegate get the significance of that phrase "the climax of our efforts"? And what DID it mean? It meant first, that this group of Bankers believed they had now established a Bank that would stand above and beyond the control of any government and all governments; and as such, would in time be able to dictate to any and all governments: This was the meaning of "the climax of our efforts" at the time of the Brussels Conference; March 1930. . . One year later, Feb. 1931, we got the second meaning of "the climax of our efforts" when Mr. Norman was again called before the Macmillan Committee and interrogated as follows:
Lord Macmillan: Mr. Norman, would you give us a little historical survey as to how the Bank of International Settlements came into being?
Mr. Norman: I will do my best. . . I think the idea first came when it was suggested that the Bank of England should call a conference of the great Central Banks in all the leading nations, for the purpose of organizing a World Bank... This suggestion was followed, but for years without success; not because the other banks were unwilling to cooperate with the Bank of England, but because they were afraid of the publicity and questions which would arise in their respective countries when it was discovered that they had attended any such conferences... Consequently for years, my efforts failed; Nevertheless, during these years of failure, I was supported by two outstanding men who eventually made cooperation possible, — They were Pres. Schact, Pres. of the Reichsbank of Germany, and Mr. Strong, Governor of the Federal Reserve Bank in America; and being in whole hearted support of the plan, they did a great deal toward its final success...
Lord Macmillan: What was the particular objective of your Bank of International Settlements?
Mr. Norman: Its particular objective (March, 1930) was to get rid of "reparation payments", and in this objective we have succeeded, for we have taken reparations out of the political arena, and put them into the back room of our World Bank, where they were soon largely forgotten by the public and the payments could then be "mechanized". . . And even a Brooklyn delegate will get the significance of this testimony, to wit, that the settlement of the War Debts had been taken out of the hands of the various governments, and were being "mechanized" in the back room of the Bank of International Settlements. . . And we may note in passing that after World War II, Lend-Lease "Payments" will also be taken into the "back room of the World Bank and properly "mechanized" and "sterilized" . . .
But to continue with the story: Having reached "the climax of their efforts" by setting up their World Bank in 1930, and having gathered the world’s monetary gold into their hands, Mr. Norman and his compatriots were no ready to take the next step on their road to World Dominion: So in March 1931, Mr. Norman appeared suddenly in New York (and Incognito) for a conference with the followers of Aaron, the gold-worshippers of our American metropolis. . . Comfortably seated in a large sound-proofed office in Wall Street, Mr Norman unfolded his new plan for their next step toward World Dominion; remarking as he did so, "It is my own invention". . . His remark as to his authorship was an unfortunate slip of the tongue, for his American listeners immediately suspected that he had had some assistance in his "invention"... As Mr. Norman explained his new plan; the founding of the Bank of International Settlements (The World Bank, the Bankers Bank) was but the first half of their conspiracy for World Dominion: True, that the World Bank was "the climax of our efforts" in the matter of monetary gold: True, that placing their Banking Center at Basle, Switzerland, they had removed their operations from the scrutiny or interference of and by the politicians of the great "Democracies"; but this "climax of our efforts" was but the coming to the top of the hill from which they could see certain other fields of human activity that must be seized, before their plot for World Dominion could be realized. . . In short, said Mr. Norman, we must now do in Commerce and Industry, what we have done in Finance; ;having set up our World "Money" Bank with which to control the currencies of the world, we must now set up a World "Trade" Bank, through which we shall eventually get control of the Trade and Industry of the world. Of course said Mr. Norman (and here his voice was soft and low) "of course the credit upon which the business of "Trade" Bank is conducted will be under the control of the "Money Bank" ... When He had completed his recital, with its glowing promises of limitless profits and power, Mr. Norman received the greatest if not the first real shock of his long conspiratorial career; for his American compatriots quickly tole him they were not interested, they "weren’t having any" . . . Knowing that Mr. Norman was the world’s financial wizard, we wonder how it happened that Mr. Norman didn’t foresee that his American friends would reject his grandiose plan. And why DID they reject it, when they had joined so whole-heartedly in his plan for a World "Money" Bank? The answer is obvious — the American Big Bankers were perfectly willing to join Mr. Norman in a World "Money" Bank where they gambled with other People’s money, but they were not going to place American Industries, Factories, and Oil Wells in which "their" money was invested, under the control of Mr. Norman and his European associates . . . At least they thought they wouldn’t at the time; but alas and alack, they had reckoned without their host, the suave Mr. Norman, who at once departed for London to set in motion a chain of events that would bring American Industry and Trade under his control, as effectively and far more speedily than would have occurred under the World "Trade" Bank. . .
True, his plan to first wreck and then capture American Trade and Industry would also bring wreckage, blood and tears to his native country England; but that was to be expected, since Mr. Norman had freely admitted to the Macmillan Committee that he would restrict British credit regardless of consequences, whenever such restriction was necessary to the maintenance of his INTERNATIONAL position; for that was the one thing he and his associates were striving for, an INTERNATIONAL position of impregnable power and control. . . Here then is a picture of that chain of events set in motion by Mr. Norman, and highlighted by the dates on which the events occurred:
In February, 1931, Mr. Norman had boasted before the Macmillan Committee, that his World Bank had achieved its main objective, in that Reparations payments had been "mechanized." One month later, in March, 1931, Mr. Norman is in New York trying to sell his plan for a World "Trade" Bank. And one week later Mr. Norman was back in London starting the "chain of events" which would make the New York Bankers regret their rejection of a World "Trade" Bank.
By June, 1931, Mr. Norman’s chain of events were approaching another "climax" for the gold of his Bank of England was being rapidly shipped out of the country and sent to New York or Paris.
By August 15th, 1931, 60% of the world’s monetary gold (all of it belonging to the Norman-Internationalist group) had been deposited in the Banks of New York.
On August 19th, four days later, some "radical politicians" in Parliament, placed an embargo on further shipments of gold from the country. But their embargo came too late, for the Bank of England had already shipped its last ounce of gold to New York; and since the British Treasury depends upon the Bank of England as the American Treasury depends upon the Federal Reserve System, it will be readily seen that the British Treasury and the British people were in a sad state in the August of 1931.
From this date forward the chain of events moved rapidly around the world. On September 21st, 1931, England and India went off the Gold Standard. Six days later, Norway and Sweden dropped the Gold Standard. Two days later Denmark abandoned Gold. Two weeks later Finland followed suit, and on December 11th, Japan joined the parade. Two weeks later we entered 1932 – the most fateful year in modern history – the year in which the rest of the world (except France and the United States) left the gold standard, and the year that raised to Power, those well-known gentlemen, Adolph Hitler and Franklin Roosevelt. In January, 1932, Germany enacted its "Standstill Agreement." In February, Ecuador left the gold standard, to be followed by Romania on January 25th, by Chile on March 29th, by Portugal and Greece in April and by Siam and Peru in May.
In September, Germany indefinitely postponed her debt-payments to America. On November 8th, Roosevelt was elected President and two days later both France and England requested the American Government for a postponement of their War-debt payments; and note just here that at the moment the French and British Governments were asking us to postpone their debt payment, the Bankers of France held 4 billions of gold in their Paris Banks, and the British Bankers (the Norman-Rothschilds group) had 4 billions in gold deposited in New York City. . .
In December 1932, Poland and Belgium politely informed us they would make no further payments on their Debts (and why should they, with the Good-neighbor Policy just elected to power); and at last, the best joke of all, South Africa that produces three-fourths of the World’s gold, went off the gold standard. . . Thus through 1931 and 1932 the chain of events by which the gold of all nations was shipped to New York and Paris, moved around the world, bringing ruin, blood and tears, to every nation in the world save France and the United States. . .
Question: But why did these nations send their gold away, knowing that the restriction of credit to follow, would wreck their economic systems?
Answer: Because Mr. Norman and his associates "Had Planned It That Way."
Question: If the removal of their gold and the restriction of their credit brought ruin to the nations that shipped it, why didn’t the deposit of 60% of the World’s gold in New York produce a corresponding improvement in our American economic system?
Answer: It did, dear reader, it did (for a short while). In fact the improvement was sufficient to cause many of our leading businessmen to say that we had weathered the Panic caused by the Stock-market crash of 1929, and were well on our way back to normalcy. . . Even Republican orators during the campaign of 1932, alluded to the restoration of confidence and the recent extension of Bank credit to American industries. . . But again, alas and alack, they had not reckoned with Mr. Norman; for while in August 1931, 60% of the world’s monetary gold DID repose in New York Banks, by December, 1932, the tide had turned and the gold was flowing OUT of America and INTO such countries as Mr. Norman dictated. By MARCH, 1933, ALL of Mr. Norman’s gold had departed from America, together with a tremendous volume of gold owned by American Bankers. . . And it may now be recalled that it was in this fateful month of March, 1933, that our depression struck the bottom for the first time. That it was in this month that every bank in the nation closed for a "Holiday" (reminiscent of those joyous occasions known in London as "Bank Holiday") . . . That in the Stock-market crash of March 1933, the Bankers took a far heavier loss than the one they had suffered in the crash of October, 1929 . . . (It was also in this month that Mr. Roosevelt took his FIRST oath to support the Constitution.)
That the tragedies flowing from this fateful month of March 1933, with the return and deepening of the depression, with bank and business failures sweeping the country, were NOT accidental, but were the result of the removal of Mr. Norman’s gold, I present the following irrefutable evidence, to wit: In 1933 Mr. Roosevelt commissioned Mr. George Peek, the nation’s leading Foreign Trade expert, to prepare a Report on America’s Foreign Trade between the years 1896 and 1934, a period of 38 years. . .With the $50,000 furnished to Mr. Peek, he began his survey, and one year later submitted his report and was duly thanked by the President. . . In many respects this Peek report is the most sensational document ever prepared by a Public Official in the entire history of this country. But did the reader ever see a Copy of this report? Probably not, for the report was quietly "shelved" . . . But this author still has his copy of that report and will now quote two of the sensational statements contained therein: (1) That our Foreign Trade for the 38 years between 1896 and 1934 did not bring us a Profit, but brought us instead a loss of TWENTY-TWO BILLION Dollars . . . (Remember that when you hear some Candidate for office pledging himself to recover our Foreign Trade . . . If he does, we’re sunk.)
(2) That the Depression which returned and deepened after March 1933, together with the Stock-Market Crash and the Bank Holiday, were THE DIRECT AND INEVITABLE RESULT OF GOLD BEING SHIPPED OUT OF THIS COUNTRY BETWEEN DECEMBER, 1931, and MARCH, 1933. . .
Thus by removing his gold, Mr. Norman had given us a new Stock Market Crash, and a new and deeper depression, had permanently closed one-half of the nation’s banks, had punished the New York Bankers for rejecting his plot for a World "Trade" Bank; but more terrible and costly than all these things combined, Mr. Norman’s "chain of events" so completely cornered American Bankers, Editors and Politicians, that they would and did keep quiet and mum, when in January 1934, Mr. Roosevelt took us off the Gold Standard and then (Believe it or not) started buying back the very same Gold Mr. Norman and his friends had withdrawn from the country, with a terrific profit to Mr. Norman et al, and a terrific loss to the American people. . .
For the gold which Mr. Norman removed during 1931 and 32 was worth $20.67 per ounce, but when Mr. Norman and his friends returned their Gold to America between 1934 and 1941 (TWENTY BILLION DOLLARS OF IT), they were paid $35.00 per ounce, a neat profit of $15.00 per ounce. . . Whatever else this incident proves, it proves that the New Deal "Good-Neighbor Policy" is good for the "Neighbor" when that neighbor happens to be an International Banker. . .
Strangely enough, millions of our people imagine that the twenty billions in gold which the New Dealers purchased from Mr. Norman and friends, belongs to the American people, even as they also believe in Santy Claus or that the Constitution is still the Sovereign Law of the Land; but of course nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is, that when the International Bankers turned over their gold to the Government, the Government gave the Bankers a certificate that was little other or less than a "warehouse" receipt. . . For the past ten years our Government has stood the expense of "warehousing" and guarding this gold, and will continue to do so until the Bankers are ready to surrender their "receipts" and recover possession of their gold. But there are two other facts connected with this incident, in which even a Republican Convention Delegate should find food for thought. Thus, two questions: What did the International Bankers do with their "warehouse" receipts during the past ten years? They used them as "collateral" for Loans from American Banks, and with the proceeds of these Loans, they "PROCEEDED TO BUY CONTROL OF MANY OF OUR LARGEST CORPORATIONS," in a variety of fields, including Automobile, Oil, Chemicals, Machinery, Newspapers and Radio . . . And you can play that on your American piano. . .
Later, when the time is ripe, with the profits they have earned from their investments (mainly WAR profits) they will repay their loans to the Banks, pick up their collateral, and return their warehouse receipts to the Government and recover their gold. Even if they have to repay the $15.00 per ounce profit which the Government paid them (which is doubtful), the International Bankers still have control of many of our largest corporations, and with this control, be in a position to force other American corporations into the one time rejected World "Trade" Bank.
The final question in this connection is — What will the International Bankers do with all this Gold after the war? This is a very important question, my dear reader, so think carefully as you read the answer: After the War, and as had already been hinted by Secretary Morgenthau and the Governor of the Bank of England, the two great Democracies that love all Forgotten Men and small nations (except India, Latvia, Lithuania, Esthonia and all Africa), will declare the whole world back on the Gold Standard, and will then announce to the hungry and war-torn nations, that if they want to escape starvation, revolution, civil-war and such things, they must immediately adopt the Gold Standard as a foundation for their currencies . . . Most of the nations having no choice in the matter, will of course agree, and the International Bankers, in furtherance of the Good-Neighbor Policy, will then lend the several nations a limited amount of gold to be used as a base for their currencies — BUT WILL LEND THIS GOLD ON THE BANKERS’ TERMS, among which will be the right to establish in the several nations "branches" of their "Trade" bank, through which all imports and exports would be channeled: Then branches of the Money Banks to facilitate shifting of gold deposits from nation to nation. Thereafter, every merchant, farmer or enterpriser who wants credit, will have to get it (if he gets it) from the "branch" Bank located in his particular country. . .
This then is the Plan which the International Bankers and the Government heads who are cooperating with them have "Planned that Way". . . And hereafter you will know what is meant by "WE," when you read "We Planned it that way". . . And in concluding this phase of my appeal, the reader should remember, that whether Montagu Norman or John Maynard Keynes is the head of the World Bank (or the Bank of England) is a matter of little importance. What IS important is that the Leopard does not change its spots, nor will the International Banker gang change its plan, for whoever the titular head may be, the PLAN goes on.
With this extended preface, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Convention, we come to your individual and collective duty as the delegated representatives of millions of American voters; reminding you by way of caution, that it is the Duty of a Representative to Represent the majority opinion of the voters who elected him as a Delegate.
WHAT IS the majority opinion in your respective districts? In 1940 that majority opinion was opposed to "Intervention," as both Willkie and Roosevelt freely admitted in their "Campaign oratory." TODAY, in 1944, that majority opinion is opposed to "Internationalism," whether it be the brand of the New Dealers or of "One World" Willkie. . . For the majority of the voters who make up that majority opinion are well aware that Internationalism, whatever the brand, is but a camouflage, a smokescreen, behind which the International Bankers are promoting the conspiracy above described. . .
On an earlier page you were reminded that in the Convention of 1940 the Delegates overruled that majority opinion and produced a platform on which Roosevelt might have run with ease, and on which Willkie DID run with an effort. And as a result of that platform and that candidate, we suffered a New Deal victory followed by War and Regimentation, Blood and Tears and with more to come. . .
Also on that earlier page you were warned that in this campaign you dare not overrule that majority opinion nor vote counter to its demands, lest you destroy the Republican Party and the American Way of Life. For if in 1932 ten million Republicans left their party to support Roosevelt because they were displeased with the Republican Administration’s method of dealing with the Depression, you can wager your last dollar that in THIS campaign more millions of Republicans will desert the Party should this Convention fail to produce a Platform and Candidate pledged to the destruction of Internationalism. And of those who desert, many will vote for the New Deal Candidate, if for no other reason than to punish the Republican Leaders who betrayed their confidence.
(Note: The following paragraph was written AFTER the Republican Convention had adopted a NATIONALIST Platform, and nominated Dewey and Bricker.)
From the day of the Dewey-Bricker nomination, Republican Senators and Congressmen have viewed with alarm the growing apathy with which the Republican voters of the midwest have received the nomination of Gov. Dewey . . . and more recently, with Roosevelt renominated, and with New York gamblers betting 3 to 1 on his re-election, these Midwest Senators and Congressmen have awakened to the horrible realization that IF Dewey loses the Midwest, THEY will lose their OWN jobs in Washington.
As they see the present picture, two factors will combine to defeat Dewey in the Midwest: (a)The New Dealers will "smear" Dewey as an "Internationalist" and say that, as both Roosevelt and Dewey are internationalists, we should keep Roosevelt in office, since he has had twelve years experience in dealing with International affairs. (b)That as a result of this "smear" campaign, the four million Germanic, Swedish and Irish Republican voters living in the Midwest will simply refuse to vote; and thus throw these Midwest States into the Roosevelt column. . .
So the question confronting these Midwest Senators and Congressmen is as follows: — Shall they stay on the "band-wagon" and risk defeat along with the National Ticket?, or shall they obey the demand of the Midwestern voters for a clean-cut fight against New Deal Internationalism? Upon their answer to this question depends, not only their OWN political future, but the future of the Republican party and the LIFE of the American Republic. Let the reader make no mistake as to the issue here involved: if the New Dealers carry the Midwest next November, they will win the election; and then and thereafter they will rapidly proceed to liquidate what little remains of our American Way of Life. . .
And the New Dealers WILL CARRY THE MIDWEST, unless the Senators, Congressmen and other political leaders of this area make their fight upon the ONLY issue involved in this campaign – American NATIONALISM vs New Deal INTERnationalism. . .
When Stalin and Churchill defiantly promote the interests of Russia and England, even when their interests are opposed to American interests, and when the New Dealers defiantly neglect American interests while promoting in Internationalist Super-State — isn’t it about time for the PEOPLE of America to defiantly demand the protection of THEIR interests; and to this end, UNITE, for the election of a Republican and a NATIONALIST Congress? ? ? ? ?
A truly AMERICAN Congress (nationalist), can force any President (even Roosevelt) to obey the Constitution and adhere to our traditional Foreign Policy. THEREFORE, see to it that YOUR Congressman loves America FIRST.
"THE DOGS BARK"
I conclude with a typical and touching story entitled, "When the thief has departed, the dogs need not bark." Recalling that fateful year, 1933, when the New Deal Bureaucrats first took possession of the Government, when a new and more violent depression began sweeping across the land, when one-half of the nation’s banks went permanently out of business; and ALL because Mr. Norman’s Gold had gone home to England. In August of this same fateful year, this same Mr. Norman again visited our shores to see for himself the results of his handiwork . . . He later reported to his English associates that what he saw (and WHO) he saw, pleased him very much. And during this August visit, Mr. Norman was entertained at lunch by (of all people) the President of the United States. . .
According to the published reports "the two eminent gentlemen greatly enjoyed the event." They had so much in common (too much). . . And come to think of it, what a picture it must have been as the two friends smiled at each other across their tea-cups. . . The man who wrecked Banks, Nations and peoples; and the Lover of all Forgotten Men, lunching tete a tete, What a picture. . . Oh! well! let’s get on with the story:
In October, two months later, Mr. Norman was touring his native England; and what an England it had become in that past eight months, since Mr. Norman’s gold had come home from America. All England was now happy and prosperous, having escaped from the privation and starvation it had endured in 1931 and 32 while Mr. Norman’s gold was visiting in America. . . And, thought Mr. Norman, how different is this new England from the America he had just visited . . . Indeed so joyful were the big Bankers and Merchants of England, that they gave a great banquet for Mr. Norman, being careful, of course, that only the best people attended — such people as Neville Chamberlain and Winston Churchill — whose speeches, together with Mr. Norman’s were the highlights of the evening. . . In Mr. Chamberlain’s speech after complimenting Mr. Norman, the Chancellor said, "Today our adherence to the principles of Sound and Prudent finance is bringing its reward" . . . "TODAY" said Mr. Chamberlain, "the ‘rewards’ are coming in as a result of ‘sound’ and ‘prudent’ finance" . . . WHERE was that sound and prudent finance in 1931 and 32 when the "rewards" didn’t come in? Obviously it was visiting in America, where for a short time it again brought in some rewards . . . Is a Financial system "sound and prudent" when it can be wrecked by the shipping of a few tons of gold to some other country? YES, it is, for men like Chamberlain, Churchill and Norman, for we remember that Mr. Norman said to the Macmillan Committee it IS sound and prudent to wreck the industry and commerce of England, if by so doing "We strengthen or maintain our INTERNATIONAL position."
Next came the speech of Mr. Churchill who, after proposing a Toast said, "We are proud of Mr. Norman and compliment him upon the courage, imperturbability and inflexible fidelity with which he discharges his duty". . . Well, Winnie was right — they should have been proud of him — for with his courage, imperturbability and inflexible fidelity, Mr. Norman had just scuttled their chief competitor by wrecking American commerce and closing one-half of America’s banks.
Then came the speech of the evening – by Mr. Norman. After the usual rhetoric he said, "WE here (there at that banquet), WE here have proceeded slowly, carefully, deliberately but successfully, more successfully than they have in other countries . . . I am not speaking politically, I am speaking of those matters which vitally affect our business interests, because WE (there’s that "WE" again) are not only members of a City and an Island, but members of an Empire, a Continent and a WORLD." And then Mr. Norman came to "the climax of his effort" when he said, "WE shall have much criticism, WE shall have many disagreements, at home (England) and abroad (America), but I console myself with THIS, ‘the dogs bark, but the caravan passes on’" . . . (cheers and more cheers). The people, the honest statesmen, the merchants, farmers and workmen of all nations may bring "US" difficulties, criticism, disagreements (prayers and pleas), but "WE" shall not be stopped; for though the dogs bark, OUR caravan passes on . . . And on and on and on, to World Dominion . . .
So the dinner was a great success, even more successful than his luncheon with the American President. . . In fact Mr. Norman was so pleased with his popularity that he deemed it the proper time to take his next step toward World Dominion. Therefore for the next two months he spend his time seeking political support for his new plan — A WAR AGAINST RUSSIA. Of course his plan for a War against Russia did not mean that English troops would fight in that war — far from it. Mr. Norman would find some other nation to do the fighting, as he later did. But then and there he needed political support and most of all the support of Prime Minister Baldwin and Neville Chamberlain, Chancellor of the Exchequer . . . But Mr. Baldwin, the stubborn gentleman who later assisted the Duke of Windsor off the Throne of England, refused to support Mr. Norman’s plan against Russia, so Mr. Norman assisted Mr. Baldwin out of his job as Prime Minister . . . Mr. Chamberlain, however, being heavily interested in the Munitions Industry, joined Mr. Norman, and was at once rewarded with the job of Prime Minister. . . With these minor details arranged to his liking Mr. Norman was now ready to arrange the financing of his war against Russia; which is to say, he was ready to raise the money with which Mr. Hitler would, and later did, refortify the Rhineland, build a great Navy and Air Force, and assemble a huge and mechanized Army. For it was Mr. Hitler and Germany that Mr. Norman had selected to do the actual fighting, in his war against Russia. . .
So it happened that in the Spring of 1934 Mr. Norman convened the leading Bankers and Munition Makers of England, and proposed that they furnish Mr. Hitler with the necessary Money, Munitions and Machines to start the War. The proposal was unanimously approved, and Mr. Hitler was at once armed and equipped with results that are now history.
At this point we must turn back for a moment to an earlier page of this book and recall two incidents there contained. The first incident deals with the question of Money. Why, in the Spring of 1934, did Mr. Norman’s Banker-friends so readily agree to his proposal to finance Hitler? Because (as you remember) just two months previously, in January, 1934, the "Good-Neighbor" in Washington had begun paying these English Bankers $35 an ounce for gold worth less than $20 per ounce. . . Clearly then (as we can now realize), the English Bankers were assured that the Money THEY would advance to Hitler, would come from where it usually comes — dear old, poor old, VERY old, UNCLE SAM . . . And so it did (and does). . .
The second incident above referred to was that sensational speech delivered by Lord Lothian, on June 5th, 1934, just two months AFTER Mr. Norman’s Bank-friends had agreed to join him in furnishing Hitler the sinews of War . . . And again I remind you of Lord Lothian’s words – he said of the new war then brewing in Europe, "Realizing that Great Britain will not guarantee stability in a re-armed Europe, FRANCE is now vigorously trying to strengthen its old system of security with the military assistance of Russia. . . And caught between the two, Germany is now trying to decide how to save herself through re-armament. . . Great Britain’s International position has fundamentally changed; we are no longer a part of the European system. . . and therefore it is my belief that we should not interfere in the present difficulties in Europe."
As to Lord Lothian’s logic we are not interested, but we ARE interested in the fact that by his speech on June 5th, 1934, he KNEW that two months previously his government had permitted Mr. Norman and his friends to furnish the money and munitions for German re-armament. . .
It is the Law in these United States "that he who furnishes the gun for a murder is as guilty as he who does the shooting," and if that Law has not been repealed (along with the Constitution) you can make up your own mind as to whether it is the PEOPLE who start Wars, or the International Bankers who now seek, and almost have, World Dominion . . . And they will have World Dominion if the November election goes "International"; and it WILL go International unless this Republican Convention and Party goes "NATIONAL" . . .
And now Ladies and Gentlemen of the JURY, let us sum up the evidence: In August, 1933, Mr. Norman comes to America to attend the funeral of American prosperity; and after viewing the remains, enjoys a pleasant luncheon with our president. Two months later Mr. Norman tells his Internationalist friends (including Churchill) that as to their PLAN, "WE have proceeded deliberately and successfully, and would continue to so proceed. And that if the American dogs barked, their International caravan would pass right along. . .
Three months later Mr. Norman removed Mr. Baldwin as Prime Minister and promoted his munitions friend, Mr. Chamberlain, to that office.
Three months later Mr. Norman persuades his Banker friends to use the profits they had earned by selling gold to America in re-arming Hitler for a war on Russia. . .
In brief, in less that one year after his famous luncheon with our president, Mr. Norman had equipped Hitler (the president’s enemy) for war on Stalin (the president’s friend) . . . And to complete this story "Of the Barking Dogs," Mr. John Maynard Keynes, the present Governor of the Bank of England, has for two years been a "financial adviser" to the president, a frequent house-guest of the president, and as such has been constantly in a position to render to his Internationalist friends, services no less satisfactory than those rendered by his predecessor, Mr. Norman. . .
We may then conclude, that at least in one respect, the International Banker is god-like; "he moves in mysterious ways (and places) his wonders to perform." And HOW does he perform? Well once in each generation here in America, he "performs" a major-surgical operation, removing our Youth, our Money and our Prosperity. And today, having reached the "climax of his efforts," he hopes, through this coming election, to remove our Liberty, our Form of Government, and our American Way of Life. . .
With this summary, the Prosecution rests; and in your hands, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury (and Convention), now rests the fate or fortune of this Republic. For when this Convention ends, the Case of the American People vs Internationalism will also end. . . And it will be ended by your verdict here and in November. If you still believe in the American People and their Institutions, your verdict will be for an American platform and a "nationalist" Candidate. But if you still believe in Santy Claus, the claws of the English Lion and the Russian Bear, more than you believe in the American Eagle, then God help you after next November.
THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS — THE WORLD COURT — "UNION NOW"
As every informed person knows The League of Nations was not the brain-child of Woodrow Wilson but of the International Bankers, of by and for whom it was created. The purpose of the League was to make available to the International Bankers the political and trade secrets of the member nations, which secrets the Big Bankers could then use in promoting their plans for World Dominion. And when some real statesmen in the American Congress saw through this plot, the League of Nations was overwhelmingly repudiated . . . Later however Congress, by a narrow vote, approved America’s entrance into a World Court despite the fact that those who opposed our entrance into the Court declared that we were merely being dragged into the League of Nations by the back door. It is interesting to now recall that at the next succeeding election the American People proved quite conclusively that they were opposed to our being taken into the World Court, as is shown by an editorial appearing in a Detroit paper November 20th, 1926, two weeks after that election. The editorial said:
"THEY ALSO RAN"
One fact stands out in bold relief from the election returns. The American people do not like the Senators who voted America into the World Court. Of the eleven pro-Court Senators standing for re-election, all were defeated. Many familiar faces will be missing when the 70th Congress convenes. Among those not present will be:
Sen. James E. Wadsworth, of N.Y.
Sen. Robert N. Stanfield, of Ore.
Sen. Ralph H. Cameron, of Ariz.
Sen Irvine L. Lenroot, of Wis.
Sen. William B. McKinley, of Ill.
Sen. Richard P. Ernst, of Ky.
Sen. Ovington E. Weller, of Md.
Sen. George Wharton Pepper, of Penna.
Sen Rice W. Means, of Colo.
Sen. William M. Butler, of Mass.
The late Sen. Albert B. Cummins, of Iowa.
All voted valiantly for the World Court and all were defeated, either at the primaries or the final election. In virtually every instance where the contest lay between a pro-Court candidate and an anti-Court candidate, the pro-Court man was beaten. The American people have voiced their attitude on the World Court. It probably will not be necessary for them to do so again?"
While the editorial just quoted speaks for itself and should carry a warning to the Convention Delegates as they adopt a platform and choose their Candidates, it should be remembered that the above described election took place BEFORE the 1929 stock-market crash and the five years of depression which followed, had shown the American People what happens when we meddle in foreign affairs or foreign wars. And if the sentiment against "Foreign Entanglements" was thus strong enough in 1926 to defeat eight of the most able Senators in Congress, we can be sure that the sentiment of the majority of the American People will be still more violently opposed to any form of "Union Now" that may be offered after the present war.
"Lord God of Hosts be with us yet,
Lest we forget, lest we forget."

WHEN GOVERNMENTS FEAR THE PEOPLE, THERE IS LIBERTY: WHEN THE PEOPLE FEAR THE GOVERNMENT, THERE IS TYRANNY!
You have just finished reading revelations of historic Events dominated and controlled by "hidden hands" Whose influence affected the lives of untold millions, even hundreds of millions of unsuspecting citizens in this world.
This amazing little booklet, one of many books purged for being truthful, reveals extraordinary, historic, Behind-the-scenes activities and disguised which now weigh heavily on the lives of Americans Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow! But, not forever!
Despite the 56 years that passed since this booklet was printed, the diabolical events described by this author Confirm the persistent determination of alien forces to destroy the Christianity of America.
For years, Internationalist Bankers conspired to achieve dominion over the lives of Americans, even since days of the Founders: Alexander Hamilton being the Red Thread of Federalism favoring central banking and its fiat financial system designed and sponsored by Talmudists whose success in Europe spread into the world.
The red thread of this usurious system became interwoven into America’s financial structure in 1913 when alien Bankers subverted members of Congress and coerced President Wilson to adopt a system designed for and by these Aliens that decimated the constitutional rights of the American people by removing its right of coinage (The Federal Reserve: Not Federal and No Reserves!), And granting it to an antiChristian, international cartel of alien talmudists - "dominion" over the lives of Americans.
It continues unabated today: Esau has achieved the reward promised by his father Isaac, that a time would come when he would shake off his brother Jacob’s yoke and for a time, acquire dominion over him! (Gen. 27:40)
The impact of this financial control has insidiously infected all aspects of American life to such a degree, that its once Bible based Common law and Justice system and its natural Law morality, may follow other lost Empires into the "Trash Heap" of history. Their Protocols, 24 diabolical guidelines are being realized! "My people are destroyed for lack of Knowledge:" Now consider what the Lord adds to this verse. ". . . because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee." Read the more incriminating balance of this verse! (Hosea 4:6)
by Roger Hathaway, Jan 2009, typist of this booklet copy.
[As I completed typing this copy of the booklet, it is more clearly evident than ever before that the Hidden Hand of International Bankers (and associated Illuminati, Israeli influence, politicians, media, et al) have completely controlled America for more than a hundred years. We citizens of this world are playing with their money, just like Monopoly script, at their discretion and according to their rules. We are their pawns, their goyim, contemptible in their eyes, who must scrap for scarcities in their pig pen. We are foreignors here, even more alien than the other-race parasites who are beckoned here to make our lives more difficult. The Constitution was already neutralized by the time of this booklet in 1944; today it can’t even serve to prevent a non-citizen and virulent enemy of America from becoming President (puppet of the Hidden Hand). The dictatorship of America is a criminal syndicate, directed by those descendants of Esau (Edomites) who took over Jerusalem prior to Jesus’ birth, who were purged from the region in 70AD, migrated to southeast Russia to be Khazars, and now exercise the dominion over Jacob (true white race Israel) as given to Esau by his father. What we Christians fail to realize is that God has given his own true Israelite children an enemy whose most effective strategy is to appear as a compassionate friend, as in "look at all the earthly wonders I can provide if you will just participate in my scheme; if you will fall down and worship me." Jesus taught us that we should reject the earthly wonders, all of them, including our own lives, in order to be free of our enemy’s exploitive scheme. Our choice is to live in a virtual hell by participating with our enemy, or willingly die in order to follow our Lord and inherit God’s kingdom. Satan and all his legions of Edomite Jews cannot make us do anything; they can only entice! When we reach forth to grasp their offerings, the shackles get locked and we are in bondage to the enemy. We can scream against the injustice being done to us, but God will not save us from the consequences of our earthly desires. God is a husbandman, strengthening those who choose righteousness while culling those who choose earthly bondage. — Roger Hathaway, January 2009]
