G.W.M. Reynolds

A Mind Of Vast Proportions

by

R.E. Prindle

 

G.W.M. Reynolds had a remarkable career. I don’t know how many people have ever read his entire oeuvre, I certainly am not yet close, not even close enough to say closing. Still, I have read a few million words.

His work can be divided into two groupings. The first group is a preliminary to the outstanding second group. It seems almost unbelievable that a human mind could encompass the second group.

Reynolds was only 21 when he wrote his first novel in 1835. That book was titled The Youthful Imposter. This was the first in the group that may be called the French novels.

After a hiatus of three years this was followed by Alfred De Rosann and then his appropriation of Dickens’ Pickwick Papers, Pickwick Abroad, or The Tour of France in 1839, followed by Grace Darling also in 1939 and then in quick succession in 1840, Robert Macaire, The French Bandit In England, The Drunkard and The Steam Packet.

Then came the termination of the French period, Master Timothy’s Bookcase which took place in both France and England as Reynolds had returned to England in 1837. Both Pickwick Abroad and Master Timothy’s Bookcase were based on Dickens stories. Having no further source of inspiration Reynolds went dry for two years.

One imagines he put the two years to good use reading and thinking. Gathering his ideas together without format within which to place them. The bridge between the French group and the Mysteries series was image of two brothers and the two trees that were mentioned somewhat lovingly in Master Timothy.

Then the inspiration, the format, for his phenomenal period from 1844 to 1856 came from France in the fantastic novel of Eugene Sue: The Mysteries Of Paris. In his earlier period Reynolds explained quite clearly that his interest was in solving the mysteries of life. The two brothers and the two trees took immediate form in his mind and he rolled out the story that would consume 2500 pages or so working on many mysteries in the series called Mysteries of London. There was also a Mysteres de Londres published by Paul Feval in France beginning in 1843.

Now, the first premise of Master Timothy’s Bookcase was then of the mysteries or back stories that explained the true stories of certain events so there was a smooth continuation to his Mysteries of London. Once again Dickens was an influence as by 1844 several of his works had been published that dealt with the London sociology and its ‘mysteries.’

The Mysteries of London, a massive novel of 2500 pages in the two large volumes of today published by the Valancourt Press, was serialized over four years from 1844-48 while Reynolds’s supreme Masterpiece The Mysteries of the Court of London was as long running in weekly parts as today’s television series and as popular as Game of Thrones or Downton Abbey, from 1848 to 1856. The two works combined ran for a total of twelve years; a whole generation, almost, was brought up on these bestselling books.

One should also note that as there were no movies or TV at the time and most of the population was illiterate, well paying jobs, on a modest scale, were created as reading groups in which a reader read to a gathered audience. Thus, whether they charged a farthing, a half-penny or a penny, I know not, and perhaps had two or three reading groups, the reader probably lived well, well above their listeners that is.

More phenomenally the beginning and ending of Court of London bracketed eighteen other novels being composed during the same period. Nor were these minor works. Mary Price, for instance, ran close to a million words. Ellen Percy was equally long as was Joseph Wilmot. Court of London was itself five million words. I mean, these are staggering numbers. The Necromancer in the Valancourt edition runs to 600 pages of small print.

When I say bracketed, I mean that the inclusive novels must have involved problems that Reynolds was working out concurrently with the main frame Court of London. In my studies of Edgar Rice Burroughs, that author did the same thing. In his case he was unable to finish the novel that began the series as he solved his mental issues and when they were solved, he was able to finish his book.

While writing these eighteen novels while turning in weekly installments of the Mysteries of the Court of London Reynolds had to be working up two or three other novels at the same time and submitting weekly installments of those. This is a staggering work load. If it weren’t a fact, I would say it was impossible.

One can only marvel at such a capacious mind that had to be cogitating completely different stories and compartmentalizing his mind to keep them separate and coherent. Try that as a mental exercise. Absolutely impossible. The mere speed of writing to accomplish that must have been 60, 70 or even a hundred pages a day, one is stupefied. Reynolds had no problems with carpal tunnel either.

At the same time Reynolds was editing magazines and engaging in radical politics while he and his wife were raising eventually nine children. Reynolds was a superman guided by divine hands. At the same time he was keeping up on his reading and one can find traces of inspiration from that reading all through his works.

Of course, such intense mental activity took its toll on his brain. My reading is that his mind broke, or became worn out, while composing the conclusion of Court of London. Reynolds had kept this story going for eight years meaning that he to keep all the details in mind while writing more than a dozen other novels. Now this additional writing didn’t break his concentration on Court of London and that is phenomenal. The series is divided in two parts, or possible two related novels of five volumes each. The second part can be considered a sequel to the first. As the story draws to a close in his mind he has to bring several different strands including ones from eight years back, but interlocked, to a conclusion. This calls for all his ingenuity and super human concentration. As I read, I reared back in my chair exclaiming: Let’s see him pull this one off.

He announces in the text that he is going to have to concentrate intensively to do that. The astute reader can feel the effort, and he is straining, it’s almost like a runaway train careening down a mountain grade with the engineer struggling for control but then bringing the train safely into the station. I found it breathtaking but I also divined what the effort had taken out of him.

And in reading the chronological list of novels in Stephen Knight’s G.W.M. Reynolds And His Fiction I found my understanding confirmed. Consider that the great Alexandre Dumas pere, had also expended his mental energies and at roughly the same time. He too was exhausted by 60. Eugene Sue completed his last novel and died. All three men expended prodigious mental energies during their prolific careers. Walter Scott also blew his brain out by excessive mental activity.

Reynolds himself would die comparatively young of a broken head, strokes and brain hemorrhage. One can only thank him for his titanic energy during the 1840 and 50s. As a slow writer myself I hold G.W.M. Reynolds in reverence.

A Note On G.W.M. Reynolds On The

Reception Of His Pickwick Abroad

by

R.E. Prindle

 

In March 1836 Charles Dickens began his story The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club. The story was issued in weekly parts concluding in October 1838. The series had been a great success, actually moving fiction into its modern phase. G.W.M Reynolds- George William MacArthur- noting Pickwick’s phenomenal success decided to piggy back on Dicken’s success so he began a continuation of the novel called Pickwick Abroad beginning three months after Dickens last installment in January 1838 in weekly parts through Aug. 1839.

His continuation was a success also. It did dumbfound the literary circles who considered it a plagiarism. For Reynolds his appropriation of the whole of Dickens’ idea and his cast of characters and, indeed, only a couple months after Dickens concluded, Reynolds began. The public must have said something like: ‘Oh, too much of a good thing.’

Reynolds version was running concurrently with the publication of Dickens’ Pickwick Papers in book form. How much confusion and dismay this may have caused was probably profound. Unheard of. The public unaware with what was happening very likely thought that Pickwick Abroad was, in fact, a sequel to the Papers. Whether the sequel cut into sales of The Papers isn’t known; perhaps it augmented them, the story becoming one in the public mind.

Regardless of copyright violations, copyrights being ill formed at the time, the sheer effrontery of appropriating another writers success was astounding and deeply, even viscerally, resented by Dickens as why shouldn’t it have been. Dickens bore rancor in his heart while it was always remembered by the literary crowd as a gaffe on Reynold’s part.

Both men went on to subsequent great success over the next thirty odd years with Dickens being a legend still. Reynolds who was extremely prolific, composing as many as possibly 40 very long titles actually sold more copies than Dickens. As happens to writers who write copiously the mind becomes worn and exhausted by the age of 60; it loses its flexibility. Following the excellent short biography of Dick Collins as published as a forword in the Vallancourt edition of Reynold’s The Necromancer in about 1862 Reynolds had ceased to write novels and apparently through with that line of endeavor sold all his copyrights to his printer, John Dick. They had been associates through most of Reynolds career.

Now in possession of Reynolds’ copyrights Dick accordingly brought out an edition of the entire corpus save Pickwick Abroad. This would seem to mean that publishing that book would be embarrassing, or, perhaps Dickens may even have requested that exclusion. Perhaps so, but it did sting Reynolds to the core. So that his entire corpus would be available one presumes, Reynolds found a publisher to reissue Pickwick Abroad dated 1864.

The book contains two prefaces, the first appearing to be from the first edition and the second from the 1864 reissue. In it Reynolds make no apologies. I quote the second preface in full:

On perusing the work, preparatory to the issue of this present edition, I see nothing that I regret having written, or that I have thought it prudent to omit. The ensuing pages are, then, a faithful reprint of the original edition, without the slightest abridgement: the plates accompanying it are also those which were expressly designed for the work, by Alfred Crowquill and Mr. Phillips.

With these words do I introduce the new edition of “PICKWICK ABROAD” to the public—sincerely hoping that its cheapness will have the effect of multiplying a hundred fold the number of readers.

He wasn’t kidding about the cheapness either.

I think the feeling of insult by Dick’s omission of the book is deeply felt. And who knows but that a great of satisfaction by that omission was felt by Dickens.

There is also an issue of how long Reynolds resided in France. In the First Preface written in 1839 he says he resided among the French for ten years. If so, it was only possible from 1830 when he was sixteen to 1837-8 just before he turned 25. Collins who has researched he issue thinks that Reynolds was only in France for a couple of years from ’35 to ’37. One must choose between Reynolds and Collings. Now, the age figure 25 occurs frequently in Reynolds early writing usually in connection with a death. Psychologically, then, it would appear that the Reynolds of his youth died in 1839 when he was twenty-five and Pickwick Abroad was a success. In fact in the legend of Edmund Mortimer as told in Master Timothy’s Bookcase, Edmund Mortimer the literary alter ego of Reynolds, belongs to a family in which the male dies in his room in his mansion at the age of 25. Thus with the publication of Pickwick Abroad the previous G.W.M. Reynolds in the character of Edmund Mortimer died and the second G.W.M. Reynolds took his place. Reynolds was reborn in his mind in 1839. The legend of the Mortimers then continues into it eighth incarnation and through Reynolds II reborn from the ashes of Mortimer I, the Mortimer line lives on.

Another of the mysteries Reynolds so loved to unravel, this one a mystery of his heart.

The Mysteries of G.W.M. Reynolds

by

R.E. Prindle

Part I

 

It is now over two hundred years past since Walter Scott ended his great series of novels. Closing in on two hundred years since G.W.M. Reynolds began his truly amazing career that puts him in the pantheon of great novelists. Not exactly the household word of his contemporary, Charles Dickens, but after a century of neglect he is now making a belated reappearance. With the rise of on demand publishing his whole extensive catalog is now available although it requires some searching. The British Library is leader in the field.

Unfortunately the BL is reprinting the Dick’s English Library editions that use diamond point for print. At least the books aren’t heavy. For anyone beginning reading Reynolds, Valancourt Press of the US has a beautiful paperback edition of what may be Reynolds’ most popular work, the 2400 page Mysteries Of London. That book was inspired by the French writer Eugene Sue’s great work The Mysteries of Paris.

If your mind is attuned to the period Eugene Sue who was as prolific, if not more so, than Reynolds, is just as readable especially his two great masterpieces Mysteries of Paris and the Wandering Jew. The latter book has nothing to do with Jews, rather the Jesuits, but Sue uses the medieval legend of the Wandering Jew as a framing device.

Sue inspired Reynolds for numerous titles. Reynolds was accused of plagiarizing frequently and this may be true in the sense that he often used their structures. Dumas had Auguste Maquet who researched material and provided a story outline that allowed Dumas to put his entire effort into composition without having to invent the story line so he could clothe the skeleton of the story. In that sense Sue’s Mysteries of Paris provided the format for what was already in Reynolds’ mind.

Sue and Reynolds were part of that crop of novelists born from 1800 to 1816 and either died or petered out about 1860. Their brains were exhausted, worn out by their prodigious output. His contemporaries are the key to understanding Reynolds’ work. They were all essentially sociologists and psychologists. It might be advisable here to note that Reynolds born in 1814 left England at the age of sixteen on his own arriving in France in the turmoil succeeding the French Revolution of 1830 then returning to England in 1837.

Those seven years were the most formative years of his life. Not unlike the end of the century’s George Du Maurier who spent his childhood as a Frenchman then going to England with his French heritage. Reynolds developed an Anglo-French style of writing. His is not the pure English style of the period. It is much richer and fuller. He digs deeper.

As in his 1840 novel Master Timothy’s Bookcase he explains that his joy in life is exploring and explaining mysteries, getting behind the effects and seeking causes. He is not satisfied with surface appearances. He does so with spectacular results. Unfortunately he began his career by plagiarizing the characters and basic plot, such as it was, of Charles Dickens, (born 1812) Pickwick Papers, not to mention parodying Dickens’ title: Master Humphrey’s Clock with Master Timothy’s Bookcase. The loss of credibility cost Reynolds as he was shunned by the literary establishment while opening a feud that lasted their lives through.

Reynolds shows his rue in the 1864 reissue of Pickwick Abroad. To justify himself, in a preface he quotes from ‘a small sample of the favorable reviews which the greater portion of the press bestowed upon “Pickwick Abroad.”

‘From the Sunday Times: “Mr. Reynolds proceeds in his striking imitation of Boz (Charles Dickens). Would it were not so. The writer has powers that may be more worthily employed to working out an original story (which to a certain degree, this is) in an original manner.”’

And then from the Sun: ‘”In Pickwick Abroad” were not the work built upon another man’s foundation we should say it was one of the cleverest and most original productions of the modern British Press. We rise from the first Number with the only regret that Charles Dickens himself had not written it.’

In such a manner Reynolds tries to justify himself. As the work was published serially over twenty numbers and the second quote refers only to the first Number, by the twentieth part Reynolds himself seeks to exculpate his plagiarism, or perhaps, borrowing might be a kinder word. Afterall, Chretian de Troyes work The Holy Grail had four different continuators. Perhaps Reynolds should have described his Pickwick Abroad as a ‘continuation.’ But no, as we will see, he tried to appropriate Dickens characters.

Nevertheless, in his last part p. 607 of the 1864 reissue he writes:

“We must now think of bidding adieu to our friends” said Mr. Pickwick, “and of shortening the hour of departure as much as possible. One of the most important periods of my life has been passed in Paris; and though I have occasionally met with disagreeable adventures, still the reminiscences of them are almost entirely effaced from my mind by the many – many happy hours that I have spent in this great city since the day I left England. The numerous songs, tales, and anecdotes that I have heard or read are carefully entered in my memorandum book; and on my return to England I shall place the whole in the hands of some gentleman connected with the press, and who at the same time is conversant with France, and acquainted with the character of her inhabitants, for the purpose of laying them before the public in proper form.”

“The talented editor of your travels and adventures in England would be the most fitting for such a work,” observed Mr. Chitty. “He is the most popular writer of the day, and from the manner he executed the important task you formerly entrusted to his care and abilities certainly deserves your confidence in this instance.”

“No, –” returned Mr. Pickwick: “I am sorry to say that he declines the labour, and it therefore remains for me to find one who will be bold enough to take it, with the fear of being called imitator and plagiarist before his eyes. I am perfectly aware that there will be much hypercriticism to contend with – that many journalists will be severe, if not actually overwhelming, in their remarks on the new undertaking.”

‘Severe and overwhelming.’ Reynolds must have been bold indeed to continue through twenty parts, reach a conclusion and be off and running in a career that would span twenty-three years and involve from 20 to 35 million words. This guy, Reynolds turned out enormous works one right after the other, without pause and sometimes working on two or three at a time. Just amazing.

His masterwork, The Mysteries of the Court of London ran to ten volumes and about 5000 pages and took him eight years to finish while writing other novels. Marcel Proust is still blushing.

The Court of London is too staggering. There is no let up over the course of the work.

He was fortunate in his choice of wife in that she wrote for herself while also being the first editor who transcribed what must have been scurrilous penmanship as Reynolds must have been turning out thirty to fifty pages a day. The mere editorship must have been a consuming task. In addition, Reynolds kept a close eye on French literature as is evident by who he borrowed from. Sue (born 1804) was a constant source after his Mysteries of Paris published in parts 1841-43. Reynolds must have been reading the parts when issued. Paul Favel (born 1816) who wrote his own Mysteries of London beginning in 1843 which very probably was an influence on Reynolds who was keeping a close eye on literature from France. Favel is quite worthy too.

At least Reynolds implies as much in his 1840 novel Master Timothy’s Bookcase in which his apparent alter ego is the hero Edmund Mortimer. As a foundation for his later work Bookcase is essential reading. A stunning work in itself it is as nothing to Mysteries of London and The Court of London. Reynolds had a very powerful mind. He was capable of extraordinary mental gymnastics discussing the most complicated subjects in readily understandable terms.

Bookcase borrows the title and in a nearly unrecognizable form the method of Dickens’ Master Humphrey’s Clock. There was no need for Reynolds to make reference to Dickens work, or as roughly as Reynolds says he was treated for Pickwick Abroad, it was not enough to make him stop. Indeed the feud or assault continued to Dickens’ death which came before Reynolds’.

In Humphrey’s Clock, a number of old stories, were stored in the clock case from which members of Humphrey’s club extracted stories to read. Reynolds took the notion to a level that was impossible for Dicken to match.

The premise of the Bookcase concerns seven members of the Mortimer family as told through the life of the last Mortimer, Edmund. The genius of the family appears before each generation in turn and offers to give them through life the quality they think will make them happy.

The first Mortimer chose glory, the next literary fame, then love, success in all enterprises, Health, Wealth and finally Edmund the hero of our story chose Universal Understanding. Of course, for each quality there was an upside and a downside; in all cases the downside prevailed eroding happiness and becoming a curse.

Reynolds very cleverly shows the downside of universal understanding. The Genius of the family named Timothy provides Edmund with a magical bookcase that solves all mysteries for him. Like his subconscious the bookcase is always with him providing a written scroll to answer whatever mystery Edmund asks.

If one remembers the US radio commentator Paul Harvey, his shtick was : You’ve heard the story, now, here’s the backstory. Harvey explains the mystery much as Timothy’s magical bookcase does.

One is also reminded of The Divine Pymander of Hermes Trismegistus, tr. 1650. In it the scholar explains how Poemander helped him solve mysteries. Reynolds was very well read so there is no reason to believe he hadn’t read the book. The scholar explains the situation thus:

My thoughts being once seriously busied about the things that are, and my Understanding lifted up, all my bodily Senses being exceedingly holden back, as it is with them that are heavy of sleep, by reason either of fulness of meat, or of bodily labour; Methought I saw one of an exceeding great stature, and of an infinite greatness, call me by my name, and say unto me, ‘What wouldst thou hear and see: Or what wouldst thou understand to learn and know?

Then I said, Who art thou? I am, quoth he, Poemander, the mind of the great Lord, the most mighty and absolute Emperor: I know what thou wouldst have, and I am always present with thee.

Then I said, I would learn the things that are, and understand the nature of them, and know God, How? Said he. I answered that I would gladly hear. Then said he, Have me again in mind, and whatsoever thou wouldst learn, I will teach thee.

And there you have the magic bookcase, the unconscious of Freud, the auto-suggestion of Emile Coue. The biblical injunction: Seek and ye shall find. In a reasonable sense Edmund took the particulars of a situation worked them through on an unconscious or semi-conscious sense just as Reynolds does in his explications.

Thus, through the first couple hundred pages Reynolds has Edmund living his life, meeting people and involving himself in their problems, the back stories of which are explained by recourse to Timothy’s magic bookcase.

All goes well until Edmund is accused of a murder which he didn’t commit but which circumstantial evidence indicates he did. In trying extricate himself his explanations were so vague and bizarre to his judges, but not to we readers, that he is convicted and sentenced to be hanged but then he is considered to be insane and his sentence is commuted to life imprisonment in the Bicetre Insane Asylum.

He is then sent to the famous French prison for the insane where he is considered to be a mono-maniac. He is imprisoned with three other mono-maniacs. Now, Reynolds wants to introduce a discussion of the circulation blood. I think this really clever the way he leads his story to this point, creating a false ending with the monomaniac interlude and then Edmund will be freed from the life sentence when during the 1830 French revolution the revolutionaries throw open the prison doors and unleash a small army of loonies on Paris.

Edmund’s fellow inmate, a doctor, had contested William Harvey’s right to be called the discoverer of the circulation of blood, contending that Plato had been before him. Reynold’s describes the situation:

‘The first (monomaniac) was an old man of sixty-five, with long grey flowing locks, with long grey hair flowing from the back part of his head, the crown and region of the temples being completely bald. He was short in stature, stooping in his gait, and possessed of a countenance eminently calculated to afford a high opinion of his intellectual powers, he was however a monomaniac of no common description. Bred to the medical profession he had given, when at an early age, the most unequivocal proofs of a fertile and vigorous imagination. He first attracted attention towards the singularity of his conceptions by disputing the right of the Englishman, Dr. Harvey, to the honour of having first discovered the circulation of the blood. He maintained that Harvey merely revived the doctrine, and that it was known to the ancients. This opinion he founded upon the following passage in Plato:–“The heart is the centre of a knot of the blood -vessels, the spring or fountain of the blood, which is carried impetuously around: the blood is the food of the flesh; and for that purpose of nourishment, the body is laid out into canals, like those which we draw through gardens, that the blood may be conveyed as from a fountain, to every part of the previous system.”

The young physician was laughed at for venturing to contradict a popular belief, and was assailed by the English press for attempting to deprive we Englishmen of the initiative honour of the discovery. He was looked upon as an enthusiast, and lost all the patronage he had first obtained by his abilities.

Thus, Reynolds as part of his story introduces an extraneous discussion of the circulation of the blood in which he was interested. And then Reynolds goes on to explain the purposes of what will be his own more than vast body of work.

“Of a surety…there are individuals in his world whose motives are so strange that they escaped human comprehension. Many an action in a man’s life is explained by some little sentiment or feeling, lurking at the bottom of his soul, and buried in the most infallible mystery. The most extraordinary and important deeds are frequently regulated or indeed engendered, by motives so trivial that, if judged by the side of other men’s minds, they would appear totally incapable of exercising so powerful a control over a sensible imagination. We are apt to exclaim against the explanations frequently given by romanticists and novelists, to account for the conduct of the heroes or heroines, as unnatural and being at variance with probability; but, in the great volume of human nature, we trace the motives of character, and eccentricities of disposition, which seem to justify the wildest descriptions of the professed dealers in fiction. No romance, which emanates from the imagination is so romantic as the tales of real life. Oh! If the veil were withdrawn from all eyes—if the whole world could read the mysteries and secrets of the heart—how much villainy would be suddenly exposed—how much how many unjust suspicions explained—and how many supposed motives of applause as rapidly turned into evident causes of blame.

So, there you have the goals towards which Reynolds is striving in all his work with his very powerful mind.

After Edmund escapes from the Bicetre Asylum he immediately returns to England. Here the stories of deep mystery end and there is an interlude before a long story titled The Marriage of Mr. Pickwick. Ends the book. I will deal with the Pickwick story in another part.

It would appear that the French part of the Bookcase story represents Reynolds’ sojourn in France in fictionalized or perhaps, hypnoid state. In the interlude Reynolds looks back and examines that stay from a more sober point of view. Here in an interesting interchange between Edmund, already an alter ego, with another man who appears to be a different alter ego. The second alter ego gives a different brief history of what might have been a portrait of Reynolds in France seen from a different perspective. It is well to bear in mind that Reynolds arrived in France when he was sixteen with a very ample inheritance of 12,000 pounds. Such a young sport with money must have been seen as easy prey to sharpers. As his stories are replete with such characters and stories, indeed, Pickwick Abroad is a virtual catalog of sharp and indeed, criminal practices, Reynolds must have had the same approximate encounters. It is most likely that at least one or two succeeded and probably more as he went through 12,000 pounds in six years. Here is the passage; Edmund, the sober Reynolds and Mr. Ferguson, the flighty Reynolds.:

As Sir Edmund was returning home…he stopped for a moment to request a light for his cigar at a lonely cottage which stood on the way to his own mansion. A young man with a pale countenance and yet with an ironical and smirking expression thereupon, answered the knock on the door, which stood half open. The individual immediately addressed Sir Edmund by name and claimed acquaintance with him.

“I have seen you before,” said he:–your face is familiar to me.”

“I reside in the neighborhood,” answered the baronet; “and that may be the reason—”

“No.” Interpolated the stranger. “ I have seen you elsewhere. I never stir out of my own house and therefore well aware that I couldn’t have seen you in the vicinity. I was once a man of the world, now I am a misanthrope.”

“Indeed,” said Sir Mortimer; “and yet,” he added glancing around him, “methinks that for a misanthrope you are tolerably comfortable.”

“It was in Paris that I saw you.” Exclaimed the stranger, without heeding the observation, and having reflected for a moment. “Ah, now I remember you well, and who you are—and the strange adventure which befell you there. But, believe me, I am delighted to see you released from that horrid dungeon into which you were cast. I never believed your guilt,–I knew you were innocent,–indeed, I was fully able to judge of the force of a combination of circumstances, all collected against you, from my own experience in a most extraordinary scene of adventures, and yet”, he added with remarkable rapidity of utterance, which was evidently characteristic of him, “mine was rather a laughable than a serious history. Did you know me by name in Paris? Did you ever hear of Mr. Ferguson, who had acquired the honourable distinction to the name of the ‘Man of the world? No! Well—I believe I was as much entitled to the name as the Barber in the ‘Arabian Nights Entertainments’ was to that of Silent…’

Undoubtedly as a sixteen year old in 1830 Reynolds over the next six years flattered himself as being a man of the world, which he was, he ruefully recalls, as much as the obviously talkative Barber in the Arabian Nights had received the sarcastic name of Silent.

Also Reynolds having read the Arabian Nights shows how he must have passed much of his time in France. The work was translated into French from 1702-1713 by Antoine Galland and first in England as late as 1844 by Edward Lane.

Reynolds was exceptionally well read for such a young man. He was only twenty-six in 1840 when this book was written. He was interested in all the Liberal Arts including psychology as being developed by the great Anton Mesmer and his successors and hence the inkling of the sub- or unconscious. And he considered himself a teacher. Quite extraordinary.

As there will be discontinuity between this period and part two and three I will discontinue here and pick up on the continuation shortly.

Immigration, Damon Runyon,

And New York City

by

R.E. Prindle

 

In the 2019 March-April issue of Foreign Affairs devoted to discussion of the idea of New Nationalism, Jill Lepore a Harvard Professor of History opens the discussion with an article entitled: The New Americanism. No, she isn’t talking about Pres. Donald Trump. Her proposition is this: Why a Nation Needs a National Story.

Apparently Liberals have given up on the idea that there is no such thing as a nation. Even a social construct needs a reason to exist. I quote here first two paragraphs:

In 1986, the Pulitzer Prize-winning, bowtie-wearing Stanford historian Carl Degler delivered something other than the usual pipe-smoking, scotch-on-the-rocks, after-dinner disquisition that had plagued the evening program of the annual meeting of the American Historical Association for nearly all of its centurylong history. Instead, Degler, a gentle and quietly heroic man, accused his colleagues of nothing short of dereliction of duty: appalled by nationalism, they had abandoned the study of the nation.

“We can write history that implicitly denies or ignores the nation-state, but it would be a history that flew in the face of what people who live in a nation-state require and demand,” Degler said that night in Chicago. He issued a warning: “If we historians fail to provide a nationally defined history, others less critical and less informed will take over the job for us.”

Unquote.

I empathize with Prof. Degler’s concerns, however ‘nationally defined history’ already exists and has existed for some time, it is called the Immigrant Narrative of American History. According to it ‘Americans’ are good people, indeed, the very best but only because we have opened our hearts, minds and national home to immigrants from wherever and whatever condition provided only that they be colored, POC (People of Color); that is, not White. We know by this narrative that Whites have caused all the ills of the world while not deserving to live.

In the nineteenth century, it’s true that after the country became a nation in 1793 the immigrants, much to our shame today, were White, with the exception of African Negroes who were needed for work that White people wouldn’t do. That immigration would have the direst consequences even though the Negroes are good hearted POC who wouldn’t never do nobody no harm.

The principle port of entry was NYC, first at a facility called Castle Gardens and then the fabled sacred site of the Immigrant Narrative, Ellis Island. It was there that the ‘wretched refuse’ of ‘Europe’s teeming shore’ as Emma Lazarus’ poem quaintly expressed it and she pasted it on the base of the Statue of Liberty. Thus the Immigrant National Narrative was enshrined.

They were coming to America as the Jewish poet Neil Diamond sang in the twentieth century from every country in Europe and a great many of them stuck in New York City giving that town its peculiar character.

Immigration was cut off at the knees by Conservative bigots beginning in the 1920s coinciding with that abominable experiment, Prohibition. This was a license to steal for the immigrants. Whoo, boy howdy, was that a combination- immigration and prohibition. A third ingredient was the introduction of women’s suffrage. The ladies obtained the vote. And somewhen at this time the Hero of our national narrative also arrived in NYC, Damon Runyon. He was the redoubtable historian with the national narrative much longed for by Carl Degler.

Damon Runyon sat in his favorite hangout of Mindy’s Deli in the heart of NYC’s Satan’s Square Mile and surveyed the scene. Of course, his history is fictionalized but no matter it is accurate, playfully accurate.

Some will say his history is too one sided but then so are all national narratives, they’re all fictional too, cut to measure from the whole fabric. It’s something like Einstein’s ‘fabric of space and time’ which no one has ever seen or touched but is still an article of faith.

For those who don’t know Damon Runyon, perhaps America’s least known historian, who wrote about ninety years ago, you may have seen an even more fictional representation of the work in the movie Guys And Dolls starring Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra, two legendary characters that were once flesh and blood, if you follow them, in 1955 nearly seventy years ago if you’re still too young to remember.

So, Damon Runyon sat studying the immigrant type for that is what he portrays. The key nationalities that he describes are the Irish, the Sicilians and the Jews. The main Irish influx arrived in the 1840 and hence were the most assimilated, but only partially so, while the Jews and Sicilians were in the gold rush to America from 1890 to 1914. Those two groups were all only partially assimilated, the Sicilians least of all.

In Runyon’s stories they are all criminals. Like, who else hangs around in Satan’s Square Mile? Runyon really romanticizes these criminal types. Without knowledge of the situation they were all a bunch of lovable guys and dolls. Who could not like the Butch of Butch Mind’s The Baby. The only problem is that Butch is a killer wherein the humor of a thug minding a baby.

I first became acquainted with Runyon’s stories when I was sixteen. Perhaps my attention was called to him by the movie Guys and Dolls that was released at that time. Not being familiar with the context I was entranced by Runyon’s undeniable Flash. I was knocked off my feet and remained so until the last several years. Over time I reread the stories with a fair amount of regularity, each time gaining in worldly experience and a deepening sense of reality as to the deeper meaning of the stories content.

I still read the stories with some regularity having acquired original copies of the collections and a number of collections from a few stories to omnibus comprehensive collections. However when I now read it is with a sickening realization of their underlying brutality. For instance, the story, The Old Doll’s House, that particularly enchanted me, that involves a thug evading a shoot out in the process of which he jumps a wall and seeks refuge in the Old Doll’s house.

The Old Doll, we’re talking Guys and Dolls here and all women are Dolls, is a lady of advanced years. As she is blind she can’t see the thug waving his gun around and pleased to have company invites him to tea. Orienting himself the thug sees a clock that reads 12:30 which is the approximately correct hour. A half hour later it still reads 12:30 and that clues him in to the fact that the Old Doll is blind. Now he won’t have to kill her because she can’t identify him.

The story stops being funny on the third or fourth reading, twenty or thirty years later.

And so with all the stories. Dream Street Rose for instance. On a first reading Dream Street has a figurative meaning but in fact, Dream St. is a couple of blocks in Satan’s Square Mile. When they designate the square mile as Satan’s they aren’t just whistling Dixie either. That square mile was the criminal sink of NYC, the US, the world and without doubt the universe and beyond. The Metropole Hotel was there.

If you start researching Runyon’s characters you find people like the Jewish newspaper columnist Walter Winchell. If you want a fictional portrayal of Walter Winchell view the movie The Sweet Smell Of Success. And then there is the Jewish criminal mastermind called the Brain by Runyon who was Arnold Rothstein. The Brain Goes Home is pretty much a true story. The stories in their own way are real and out of the clothing of ‘poetry’, true.

At this time and experience in my life I find the stories blood curdling, even the Lily of St. Pierre, one of my favorites. You need a little background to understand Lily. St. Pierre is an island in the North Atlantic fishing grounds, back when the cod were plentiful. During Prohibition the Mob moved in and used the island as a way station for booze. St. Pierre et Miquelon was a French administrative unit. So, the world was corrupted by Prohibition and ‘American’ immigrant criminals.

Of course, as ‘Americans’, these partially assimilated Immigrants blackened the eye of native Americans who were tarred with the same brush as these ‘American’ criminals. And in the United States according to the Immigrant National Narrative those natives were styled ‘bigots’ and racists for declining to accept responsibility for what were actually native Europeans activities.

So, Miss Lepore and her hero Carl Degler, the ‘American’ historian may find no national narrative lacking; they’re just not looking in the right place. The national narrative may not be very attractive but then it’s not very American either.  Immigration has consequences.

Slavery In America

Slavery In America

by

R.E. Prindle

 

Let’s get something straight about the different forms of slavery that have existed in the United States. In the first place no one has clean hands, just as in Africa, even Negroes had slaves in the US and elsewhere in the New World, even in Haiti. Whites owned chattels in the South, Northern Whites mined Europe to work in their factories as wage slaves to keep labor costs minimal.

Slavery in the US, other than sex slavery that is still tolerated today, had three forms: chattel slavery, indentured slavery and wage slavery.

Indentured slavery was part and parcel of US history from its very beginning. Indentured slavery was White men ‘owning’ White people according to contract. A person for whatever reason indentured himself for a period of years after which he was supposed to be freed. There were many ways for his master to increase the period. During the period of his indenture he was another man’s slave. At the same time adults and children were shanghaied from the streets of London and England for sale in the colonies.

These Whites usually described as indentured ‘servants’ were slaves in fact.   Many, many indentured ‘servants’ worked cheek by jowl with the Negro chattel slaves in the fields. In that manner White women bore many Negro children thus diluting the African blood.

Chattel slavery of Negroes was legal in every English colony, there were no exceptions. In certain States such as Massachusetts and Connecticut chattel slavery was not commercially viable and it fell into disuse. After 1812 Chattel slavery was discontinued at varying times by the various States.  Chattel slavery existed in Northern States nearly to the beginning of the Civil War. Nor did the Emancipation Proclamation pertain to any chattel slaves in slave holding States that were not in rebellion. Thus, only Negro slaves in the deep South were affected by Emancipation.

Now, just as chattel slavery was not viable in States like Massachusetts and Connecticut it did not suit the manufacturing economy of the North otherwise chattel slavery would have existed North of the Mason-Dixon line.

The basis of slavery was providing the producers with labor. Slavery was a labor problem. In the agricultural South, especially in the cotton belt, slavery was the best labor mode possible because the laborers were tied to the land and couldn’t migrate.

Providing for the slaves was the Producers responsibility, hence food, clothing and shelter was provided as a cost of doing business. There were no Negro chattel slaves that went hungry. Conditions might vary but the slaves had to be cared for. If you read in the Negro slave narratives, available on the Internet, you will be amazed at what you find.

One ex-slave didn’t regret slavery that much because he said the you never went hungry in those days. If wanted food you culled a hog from herd, killed it, roasted it and ate it. Whether that was universal or not the chattel slaves did not go hungry or unclothed.

In the North where producers wanted labor at the lowest possible cost they had to resort to wage slavery. The industrialists worked their wage slavery. The industrialists worked their wage slave harder than any chattel slave. The wage slaves worked in horrible conditions for twelve hour a day seven day a week for a pittance. The wage slavers provided nothing but that pittance. Where possible they resorted to using children, young children, and women and paid them even less than a pittance.

The wage slaves then were on their own lookout for food, clothing and shelter. All those indefensible shanty towns. In all cases they were less well off than the Agricultural slaves. The Negroes definitely had it better.

While the chattel slaves were required by law to a certain level of benevolence, the wage slave had no protections whatever. If in desperation they resisted exploitation by trying to organize they were shot down dead. They were blacklisted and were unemployable. Hence a reason for armies of hoboes roaming the land.

The ‘Saints’ from New England, the Holy Abolitionists whose sea captains bought in Africa and sold in the New World, that is North and South America and the Caribbean were also those who sought cheap White labor from European countries. The principle was to have as many different nationalities and languages as possible in order to make it difficult to combine for better wages and working conditions. Slavery was slavery and conditions were harsher for wage slaves than for chattel slaves.

Thus Negroes have no more to complain about than Whites. Slavery was part of the woof and warp of the fabric of American society.

Lincoln freed certain of the slaves in 1860 and then came Henry Ford to ameliorate the conditions of the wage slaves. Lincoln was murdered for his role in ending chattel slavery and Henry Ford has been a victim of horrible character assassination for his role in ameliorating wage slavery. Most likely the reason that good men are hard to find.

Immigration, Al Smith, And The 1928 Election

by

R.E. Prindle

 

People don’t seem to realize that time and changes pass quickly. What was applicable yesterday will not apply to today or tomorrow. Nothing changes society more rapidly than immigration. While attention is applied to race and religion it might better be applied to manners and mores. Whether you think immigration is good or bad immigration changes reality very quickly while all one’s reactions are predicated on a vanished state of affairs.

The cultural changes, that is manners and mores had been occurring at a rapid rate during the nineteenth century and early twentieth century driven by immigration. By 1921 and 1924 unlimited indiscriminate immigration had been limited to more or less controllable numbers. Nevertheless the damage had been done. While the attempt was made to limit the most different mores and manners by favoring Northern European immigrants it was too late. The two chief groups of immigrants, the Irish and the Jews had acculturated enough to challenge the traditional English and Protestant supremacy.

Thus, led by Al Smith, a Catholic Irishman who surrounded himself with Jews the two nationalities were ready to challenge the Anglo-Protestant majority. Note that the Jews are considered a distinct nationality with their own manners and mores acting in their own interests. He, Al, or they chose the inappropriate moment to challenge the Anglo-Protestant majority as the country was in a period of roaring prosperity, had two presidents, Harding and Coolidge and were to be followed by Herbert Hoover who in the circumstances there was no chance of defeating. And so it was that Herbert Hoover became the last ‘American’ president. Hoover was followed by Roosevelt to whom the Jews transferred their alliance while the Irish were forgotten. Thus the Liberal and Jewish combination have written all histories and distorted the old American contribution to founding the US.

Now, in the 1928 election the Jewish-Irish faction could not accept their loss on any other grounds than the bigotry of Anglo-American voters. In fact, Al Smith was merely a New York City machine politician who, used to campaigning in New York chose as his theme song ‘The Streets of New York’ and spoke with a heavy New York City accent. His manners and mores were those of his home town. To the rest of the country those manners and mores were humorous.

The New York accent alone would have made him unpalatable to the rest of Americans who thought that NYC had an economic stranglehold on America. And then the to thrust The Streets of New York into their faces was sheer folly.

Being Catholic, of course, didn’t help Al with the Protestants but it surely was a charm for the Catholics who were the largest religious denomination in America. But there appears to have been no block voting along religious lines. The Economy ruled.

Whether Al’s Irish background swung the electorate against him is open to conjecture but I would put more weight behind that than the religion. At that point, 1928, there was still a strong antipathy between the Anglos and the Irish. Even in 1956 in my home town the antipathy was noticeable. Apart from Jack Kennedy’s being a Democrat and offensive because of his father’s criminal background his Catholicism and nationality was a factor in my voting against him in 1960. The Irish came over to what they call the New Island in large numbers during the potato famine in Ireland in the eighteen forties and beyond. There was immediately a huge conflict between them and the Anglos in which bloody battles were fought largely aggravated by the Irish. Thus the Irish-English conflict was carried to American shores.

With the Irish came the notion that immigrants rights were superior to nativist rights. Hence the political organization known as the Know Nothing Party that arose to oppose Irish violence was demonized out of existence for its efforts to protect American manners and mores and some kind of control of their destiny. They lost that control as the Irish formed a sort of competing government called Tammany that seized control of NYC and retained it until Jimmy Walker the last Tammany mayor was booted out of the country in the early thirties. It was as though the Irish had control of London.

The Irish were then replaced by the Jews who seized both NYC and New York State. As an immigrant group, the Jews, although the smallest national supplier of immigrants also came as the highest percentage of their nation and thus had equality of numbers with the other national immigrants. There were more Jews in NYC than in any other city of the world. The only place with a higher number was the Russian Pale of the Settlement that covered millions of square acres.

The vast majority of Jews arrived from 1890 to 1914. Like the Irish the Jews created a national enclave, or colony, in NYC. By 1913 they were able to effect a socialist revolution by electing Woodrow Wilson as presidient. This revolution, for such it was, has been unrecognized by Jewish and Liberal historians but the Wilson Administration, turned out in 1920, after a hiatus of the twelve years of the Republican Interregnum would morph into the fully fledged socialist presidency of Franklin Roosevelt beginning in 1932 and ending only with his death in 1945. Thus Roosevelt was the undeclared president for life.

So, Al Smith represented the end of Irish dominance in the affairs of NY and the hope of national dominance in a Jewish-Irish coalition. If that attempt had succeeded immigrants would have seized control of the United States of America. An entire new set of manners and mores would have replaced those of the original settlers. Immigration has adverse consequences like it or not.

While there was a conflict then between the Catholic and Protestant religions and between the English and Irish and Jewish nationalities the election itself was determined on the basis of extreme economic prosperity that Republicans could claim as their own and, indeed, it was called the Coolidge Prosperity after the middle Republican president of the Interregnum- Harding, Coolidge, Hoover.

Then came the deluge. Collectivism replaced Individualism and Socialism replaced Laissez-faire, which had been the system of the nineteenth century Gilded Age. A new set of manners and mores appeared based on an immigrant ideal with its symbol of Ellis Island.

A similar transition is occurring today.

Thoughts On Mr. Bezos’ Pecker Problem

by

R.E. Prindle

https://medium.com/@jeffreypbezos/no-thank-you-mr-pecker-146e3922310f

Let’s keep the ball rolling on this issue that Mr. Bezos has brought to our attention.   We have little idea of the behind the senses activity so we can only deal with what is public.

It seems that the Mr. Bezos owned Washington Post has been attacking Mr. David Pecker’s publication the National Enquirer, itself owned by a corporation calling itself AMI.

The sin of the NE as identified by Mr. Bezos is being in contact with Saudi Arabia. This seems strange as the Saudis are publicized as one of our stalwart allies, second only to Israel. It is difficult to see the offence even if it relates somehow to Pres. Trump. Yet this seems to be the basis of Mr. Bezos’ and the WP’s complaint.

There does seem to be some involvement with government investigators between Mr. Bezos, the WP and the Mueller outfit.

Mr. Bezos make this incomprehensible statement:

Quote:

Federal investigators and legitimate media…suspected and proved that Mr. Pecker has used the Enquirer and AMI for political reasons.

Unquote:

I have always held Mr. Bezos in high regard for his unbelievable commercial success but here he makes the incomprehensible statement that it is wrong that newspapers have political reasons in publishing. Has Mr. Bezos never heard of the Editorial page? Are not stories and their characterizations used for political purposes? Do not newspapers endorse and recommend their favorite candidates? Good Lord, doesn’t Mr. Bezos own the Washington Post and use it for defaming Pres. Trump?

Actually, he does know it. (One wonders if Mr. Bezos doesn’t also own the Medium site, the site on which he chose to expose himself.) Mr. Bezos calls his ownership of the WP a ‘complexifier’. In other words it compromises him.

Quote:

Even though the Post is a complexifier for me, I do not regret my investment. (The Post loses tens of millions of dollars a year; some investment. More a vanity and/or political project.)

The Post is a critical institution with a critical mission. My stewardship (note the word) of the Post and my support of its mission, which will be unswerving (and) remain unswerving…

Unquote.

Very well, but can’t Mr. Pecker say the same about his relationship with the National Enquirer. Is the NE really any less legitimate than the WP? Is Mr. Bezos mouthpiece any less reprehensible in its political ‘mission’ to discredit Pres. Trump?

Mr. Bezos then says:

Quote:

Back to the story: Several days ago, an AMI leader, (Editor I presume Mr. Bezos means) advised us (us being whom?) that Mr. Pecker went “apoplectic” about our investigation. For reasons still to be better understood, the Saudi angle seems to be a particularly sensitive nerve.

Unquote.

Why should it? Didn’t Pres. Obama make an obsequious bow from the hip while placeing his hand in the Saudi king’s hand as a sign of fealty?

There we have the crux of the matter. Mr. Pecker’s counter attack. Apparently fighting back is not kosher to Mr. Bezos.

After having been married to a lovely lady for twenty-five years, and building the most successful gigantic business on the planet Mr. Bezos decided he needs a hot babe and so he went out and bought one (for lack of a better word) not only that he bought a married one.

In this romance Mr. Bezos, who is perhaps one of the top ten tech wizards in the world inexplicably sent and exchanged pornographic photos with his Hot Tamale. These emails and photos were then given or sold to the NE by someone.

Mr. Bezos believes that the Pres. somehow hacked them. Where they came from is beside the point but the NE categorically denies they got them by hacking. Using Occam’s Razor the most obvious suspect is the Hot Tamale. After all if you had bagged a guy worth 150 billion dollars wouldn’t you want the world to know? What Hot Tamale wouldn’t? Anent that we have heard no objections from the husband and no filing for divorce.

In frustration the NE tried to negotiate with Mr. Bezos offering to squelch publications if he gave up his unwarranted persecution of them on the WP.

Mr. Bezos chooses to call this offer extortion and blackmail. Mr. Bezo’s will hopefully pardon a knowing smile on our part.

One wonders at what strategic moment Mr. Bezos will choose to announce his candidacy for President of the United States. I think you just killed your chances, Sir.

Eugenics and Dysgenics Part 2b-10

The Mysteries Of The Second Thirty Years War

by

R.E. Prindle

Continued from Part 2b-9

Gustavus Myers was an insignificant gadfly although a figure in Jewish circles. He had first come to notice after the turn of he century when he published his book The History Of The Great American Fortunes. Fortunes, that is great big piles of money, the kind Walt Disney’s character Scrooge McDuck used to roll around in. And American which is to say not Jewish. No Jewish fortunes are considered by Myers with the possible exception of Jay Gould.

The book which was a defamatory work against the great swashbucklers of the Gilded Age met with some success but it was a nasty work that raised more ire than praise.

Since that first book, which was at least interesting, he had turned out a succession of flops that mocked, debunked, defamed and ridiculed everything American, that is not Jewish, from the Supreme Court on down. The books really have no claim to be histories and are unreadable even to scholars, but in my case duty is duty and I have read them. Myers’ fame was more apparent in Jewish circles than American ones.

And now his fellow Jews needed his services for a specific purpose. Daniel Guggenheim of the Guggenheim Foundation sought him out. He commissioned Myers to write a volume defaming Nativist Americans as objects of hatred. The result, published in 1943, would be The History of Bigotry In The United States. A rather singular one-sided study. Sordid but effectual. I first heard of the book from a sixth grade teacher (1949-50) who thought it was a wonderful book.

The book is in two parts, a description of old organizations like the Know Nothings and the APA until it finally gets to its immediate object, the defamation of the Nativists indicted for treason and who were just about to be tried. The book was too little too late as the intended victims escaped not only without a conviction but a trial. Their careers were ruined of course and their futures disappeared. The important thing to remember is that the book was commissioned by the Jewish establishment.

-VIII-

We now come to the end of this essay, the death of FDR and the disposition of Germany.

One views the power of the US and the Soviet Union over Germany in its defeat with horror. Both the US and the Soviet Union were under Jewish influence, so the Jews have to accept responsibility for the actions of both their surrogates. The deep hatred of the Jews for Germany has nothing to do with the so-called holocaust. Their hatred began much earlier. Of course, Luther was adamantly opposed to Jewry in the sixteenth century. Any such opposition is portrayed by the Jews as unreasoning bigotry. However, the Jewish nation, even though Stateless, had its own objectives that required submission by the Other. There has always been a conflict for supremacy. The modern form of the conflict between Jews and Germans, as two distinct nationalities, did not start with Hitler but can be traced back to a man called the Jud Suss, Joseph Oppenheimer, who flourished in the 1730s and 40s organizing the modern Jewish approach to the conflict with the Germans in Wurttemberg and Frankfort on the Main.

His importance to the struggle can be easily seen in his prominent revival in Weimar and Nazi Germany. I have given a more detailed account in my essay Jud Suss. http://reuprindle.blogspot.com/2016/11/a-review-lion-feuchtwanger-jud-suss.html

During the Great War a Jewish writer by the name of Lion Feuchtwanger wrote a play titled the Jud Suss that was ignored at the time. But then in 1926 he published the propaganda novel Jud Suss that sold very well both in Germany and abroad. That meant that translations into other languages, most notably English had to be prepared in advance hoping for the success of the novel. Published in Weimar Germany the novel was turned into a movie filmed in England and released under the title Jud Suss in England and Power in the US in 1934 after the advent of the Nazis. Thus the film was a direct challenge to Germany. To have been released in 1934 the film had to be conceived in 1933 as Hitler took over the government of Germany. There are no coincidences here. These events were all planned.

Thus, the film seems to have been a direct challenge to Germany as to who would rule, Jews or Germans. The insult was deeply felt by Germans, so much so that in the midst of WWII Joseph Goebbels, the German propaganda minister commissioned a German version of Jud Suss telling the story from the German side.

As I have pointed out, Theodore Kaufman published his book Germany Must Die in 1940 when only the Jews were involved in the new war while at that time the US was overwhelmingly unconcerned with involving the US. The question of exterminating the Germans must have evolved in Jewish minds much earlier than 1940. Kaufman’s book was merely an open suggestion or perhaps a hint of what was in store for the Germans when the US would be drawn into the war.

Of course, the Jews were already leading FDR into actual hostilities at sea when he ordered US warships to sink German submarines. Roosevelt said the US border was the Rhine River and the Rhine was deep within German borders. Is it any wonder that Hitler called Roosevelt a warmonger?

FDR’s Secretary of the Treasury with the exception of his first year in office was the militant Jew Henry Morgenthau Jr. Interestingly Morgenthau said that he really didn’t want the job but that he was on duty. That means he was posted to the Treasury by others, that is the Jewish shadow government. That also means that Roosevelt was following orders and indeed FDR seriously considered the extermination of the Germans. The callous disregard of all life by these people, both German, Soviets and US with allies makes your blood run cold. How necessary was it that tens of thousands of US men be destroyed or that American society should be disrupted for essentially Soviet and Jewish purposes?

By 1940 when Roosevelt won his third term violating all US mores, he was already debilitated and unfit for office so if he was already a mere Jewish puppet he became increasingly debilitated and unable to function before his death. Morgenthau, then, progressively usurped presidential powers while expanding the role of the Treasury Department into all areas of government.

Especially as the third term wore on FDR may as well have been comatose. Morgenthau, aided by Harry Dexter White, devised his plan to dismember Germany and exterminate the Germans echoing Theodore Kaufman’s 1940 book. For Americans involved the plan was horrific and breath taking, but so long as Morgenthau was in control of FDR there was little that could be done although the issue was lambasted in journals by various writers.

In 1945 Morgenthau published his book Germany Is Our Problem with a watered down version for public consumption. Had he spoken candidly the American reaction would have thunderous. Thus, Morgenthau set the stage for the extermination of the Germans. FDR, incapable during the last year or so of his presidency, having been elected for his fourth term, was never to enjoy it. Perhaps realizing his coming end, he retreated to the comfort of his women at his spa in Warm Springs. Always hopeful that the waters would cure his crippled legs he may have wished to die beside his only hope. Thus, surrounded by a bevy of women including his ex-mistress and great love, Lucy Mercer, his brain and heart gave out and he mercifully for the US and Germany slipped away.

History records the country’s grief, but it ignores the fact that there was a lot of joy of Mudville when FDR lay down his bat for FDR had struck out.

The incoming president, VP Harry Truman, had been left ignorant of nearly everything that FDR had been doing so his entry into office was nearly a tabula rasa. He was aware of the Morgenthau plan however and the reaction it had caused in Congress. Morgenthau’s days were numbered, and he left the government permanently shortly after Truman took office. That didn’t mean that consequences for the Germans weren’t draconian. Indeed, horrific conditions would exist before any amelioration until 1950 when he US realized it was shooting its feet off.

Looking back nearly a century later when one considers the situation in the light of the cold grey dawn blame for the war is not so easily to be affixed. Germany had attempted a preemptive defensive war because it was most immediately facing the Soviet Communist menace. Stalin was massing Soviet troops at the Polish border in preparation for an invasion of Central Europe. Any Soviet invasion would have been genocidal in nature fully supported by Soviet Jewry. Indeed, when the Soviets invaded Poland shortly after the Germans, masses of significant Poles were murdered along with the entire Polish Army officer corps. They were all dumped in their many thousands into a common grave in Katyn Forest.

If one traces the lead from that example it follows that the same would have happened to the German military, while very likely hundreds of thousands would have been murdered in an orgy of slaughter the Jews would have considered revenge. And that was before the so-called holocaust. Subsequently millions would have been shipped off to the gulags. Hitler was not the demon of the era.

While it isn’t kosher to speak the obvious truth and, perhaps, risky, nevertheless historical integrity requires the historian to write without fear or favor.

There was no real reason for the war to have involved the US, England, France or any of the Western countries. Hitler was willing to take on the savage Soviets alone. Always remember the Soviets had already murdered tens of millions of the Russian people while millions more were held in barbaric concentration camps in the Soviet gulag where they were systematically starved and worked to death. All the West had to do was remain neutral and let the Nazis at it. Common sense required England and France to avoid war at all costs. The manhood of both countries had been bled white in WWI a mere twenty years earlier. They were financially bankrupt. They borrowed billions that they knew they would never repay or even make an attempt to. They exhausted US resources and sacrificed US men for their folly. And then the US had to spend additional billions to put them on their feet after the war. US troops and munitions prevented the Soviets from merely demanding submission that the West would have granted. And today they insult the US president. Then and subsequently the Jews functioned secularly, the supernatural was no longer invoked.

The Mysteries Of The Second Thirty Years War

Continued from Part 2b-8

-VII-

The Conquest Of The World/The Concept of Aggressor Nations

 

The histories of the period from 1933-1945 are thoroughly unreliable as recorded by historians, mainly Jewish and/or Leftist writers. A key concept of the period was the Rooseveltian conception of ‘aggressor nations.’ The concept of aggressor nations simply refers to any nations opposing the Leftist agenda. In Roosevelt’s lexicon there were only three aggressor nations, Germany, Italy and Japan. In Hitler’s terms the big war mongers were Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin that he considered aggressors. Hitler feared Communism, the others feared Fascism, and Fascism, after all is merely a variation of Communism. Ideologically there must have been something else going on.

Nowhere are the Jews denominated an aggressor nation while they were the motive force of the Second Thirty Years War. Bernard Baruch a leader of the International Jewish community, and possibly the leader was in collusion with the leading US Jews to direct US policy and lead the country into war against Germany. The attitude of what became the Allies was neither understanding nor kind.

There were calls from all sides to commit genocide on the Germans and this long before the so-called Jewish holocaust. German hatred began when Bismarck united Germany in 1866. Prior to this unification Germany had been a congeries of small principalities of the Holy Roman Empire, often seen as a joke, Ruritanian principalities to laugh at.

After the unification German hatred began in earnest from Russia to England. After the Soviet Revolution Stalin began a campaign to commit genocide of Russia’s German populations. Of a sudden Germany was not only an economic competitor but the master competitor with the West, that is France, England and the US while being the superior of Russia. There is much evidence that WWI was as much about competition with England and France as with other issues.

To attribute the insanity of WWI solely to the Germans was an injustice of criminal proportions. To impose impossible economic burdens on Germany when an armistice, not a victory, was declared was a crime of even greater proportions. Turning the French Senegalese soldiers loose on German women ought to have been punished.

So, in 1933 as Hitler assumed the reins of government, the Jews as an aggressor nation were in control of Russia, would be in control of the US in March after Roosevelt’s inauguration and were active in all countries under the guise of the Third International directed from the Socialist power center of Moscow.

Prior to Hitler’s election, the Jews by their own admission had control of Germany. One may then partially interpret their deep hatred of the man, Hitler. The Jewish attitude to Hitler, and indeed, all Germany was evidenced by the fact that the Jewish spokesman, the US lawyer and AJC executive, Samuel Untermyer, declared war between Germany and the Jews. This would have been a meaningless gesture had not Untermyer believed that Jews were directing Roosevelt and through Roosevelt the full power, such as it was in 1932, of the United States.

Considered objectively, the Jews had been conducting a civil war in Germany from the 1917 Soviet Revolution to 1933 when the Germans under Hitler triumphed. As the leading part of this Communist Party street fighting between the Judeo-Communists had been raging for over a decade. The true nature of the Nazis was their conflict with the Jews and Communists for supremacy. All Western Europe, that is England and France, had to do was step back and let Germans, Soviets and Jews go at it.

As the English and French would not commit to peace with Germany Stalin was able to cleverly clear the way, to force, Gemany to attack France and England to protect his back by signing the German-Russian pact. Remembering WWI Stalin may have thought that the three countries would wear themselves out making them easy pickings for th USSR. The easy conquest of France may have startled Stalin. Even then the German’s could easily have defeated the Soviets except for the interference of the US. What dog did Roosevelt have in the fight? Very tragic.

In the US then, the Jewish war on or takeover of the US was being conducted according to the total war plan of Bernard Baruch’s WIB minus the shooting. The European War was a shooting war but the US war was asymmetrical. The US absorbed in the fantastic notion that immigrants renounced their customs and heritage upon setting foot on the Magic Soil were saps for Jewish machinations.

Every war has to have its evil enemy. In Germany Hitler concentrated on Jews while in the US the Jews found the Fascist or Nazi success in Europe the reason to call all opponents to their plans Fascists, Nazis and un-Americans. The House Un-American Activities Committee was a plan of Jewish congressman Samuel Dickstein to denominate American dissenters as un-American covert Fascists and Nazis and to put them in concentration camps. The result was that the Roosevelt Administration made war on Americans who dissented from his rule. HUAC was created by Roosevelt and Dickstein to specifically attack dissenters while Communists were favored.

Fortunately, Americans in Congress were wary of HUAC and so instead of appointing Dickstein, much to his chagrin, as head of HUAC the task was given to the patriot Martin Dies of Texas over the objections of Roosevelt and the Jews. Dies interpreted his job to mean rooting out both Fascists and Communists who were in fact un-American while the dissidents were not.

A group needs figureheads more real than vague terms like Fascists and Communists, so that hatred was directed at Henry Ford and Charles Lindbergh and the Catholic radio priest, Charles Coughlin. These three men were chosen to be reviled and execrated although they were innocent of any wrong doing whatsoever. There is absolutely no evidence, no reason to think that they betrayed the interests of the US to anyone. Of course, Jewish-Rooseveltian propagandists succeeded in destroying the credibility of all three men.

Since 1933 the Jewish objective had been to get the US to attack Germany. At that time when the Jews controlled the US and USSR while being, at least dominating in France and England the only obstacle to their plans was Germany. Thus, the Jewish-Rooseveltian goal was to draw the US into a war on Germany. The American people, however, recalling WWI unpleasantly had absolutely no desire to engage in any war at all. To consider Germany as a threat to the US was ludicrous. So while Ford, Lindbergh and Coughlin were taking the heat they were in tune with American desires.

The opposition barely restrained Roosevelt whose administration proclaimed that the US’ first line of defense was the Rhine deep within German territory. Well before 1942 US warships were patrolling the Atlantic sinking German submarines, so the declaration of war in December of ’41 merely authorized Roosevelt to throw off the disguise.

Of course, the dissidents would organize as the administration more and more revealed its intent. The dissidents did organize into a group called the America First Committee. They strenuously opposed US involvement in the European War, they were therefore demeaned as Isolationists as though that presumed that everyone else was Internationalists like themselves. Every opposition group requires a good pejorative label. Thus the discussion was narrowed to two viewpoints. The leaders of the AFC would turn out to be Henry Ford and Charles Lindbergh the two great bete noirs of FDR and his Jews.

Charles Coughlin, who was known as the Radio Priest, having a radio audience in the millions, in a country of merely a hundred million gauges his significance. He had no political organization however, indeed neither he nor the AFC made any attempt to organize a political party, hence power, being content to merely making noise.

By a few misjudgments, Coughlin sacrificed his position leaving himself open to attack. His programs had been carried over the CBS radio network owned by the Jew William Paley. Paley censored Coughlin closing the network to him while Jewish appeals to the Pope to silence Coughlin also had effect. By 1940 Coughlin was a nullity.

Ford, but more especially Lindbergh was another story. Lindbergh had become a great hero, idol actually, in 1927 when he became the first person to make a solo flight across the Atlantic- New York City to Paris. He became a Golden Boy. While a hero to millions Lindbergh also became an object of envy to a large number of men. He was deemed Lucky Lindy as though anyone could have duplicated the deed. Perhaps, but it was Lindbergh’s modesty that won the hearts of the world. As is, or was, well known, the Lindbergh’s first baby was kidnapped and perished. The press would not leave Lindbergh alone and so he fled to England for peace and quiet which he found.

As war appeared more likely he was asked by Roosevelt to review German air strength which he did. In the process he became familiar with the actual political situation in Europe. His evaluation was different from Roosevelt’s. While in Germany, the Germans were as taken by him as everyone else. He was given a medal in commemoration of his trans-Atlantic flight.

Back home in the US Lindbergh having considered the European situation first hand, came to the conclusion that the US should not interfere in any war. This sensible understanding was interpreted by Roosevelt, who ardently desired war, ardently he did, and was doing his best to provoke the Germans, as pro-Nazi and openly denounced Lindbergh as an actual Nazi.

This deranged desire for war may have been an indication of his desire to reclaim his manhood from polio. The desire seems to have a compensatory foundation.

This fit in perfectly with Jewish needs for a villain to hang their hatred on. They thus began to defame Lindbergh and provoke him as an actual Nazi agent.   According to their propaganda Lindbergh was going to run for president against Roosevelt, win, and become a Nazi satrap of the USA. This notion was taken seriously, advanced. even though Lindbergh had made no effort to establish a political organization. A propaganda novel was written called Keeper Of The Flame and a movie subsequently made to defame him. Not even content with that, sixty years later the Jewish writer, Philip Roth, wrote a book, The Plot Against America, that repeated the same thesis, defaming Lindbergh’s fading memory.

While the Jews make much about the so-called genocide of themselves it is established that the Jews called for the genocide of the Germans publicly, first in a book supposedly written by some Jew from the colony of Newark by the name of Theodore Kaufman titled Germany Must Die.

It is inconceivable that Kaufman came up with this thesis out of the blue in 1940 or that it was his own idea. His articulation must have come from a decade or even decades long Jewish fantasy. Surely, he was provided notes or perhaps merely handed the manuscript and told to put his name on it. This obscure book from a nonentity in Newark, one is amazed that it found a publisher, did not disappear without a trace as one might have expected. No, it received massive exposure. Time Magazine reviewed it favorably naturally, while many newspapers gave it favorable mention. Even President Roosevelt began to consider the notion.

How did Kaufman propose to exterminate the German people? Why he believed that the people would be disposed of in a generation if the males were all sterilized. Bear in mind the book was published in 1940 and the US didn’t enter the war until the eve of 1942. Quite singular don’t you think? Where would the Jews get the power to sterilize German males? Obviously they would be directing their militarily powerful American subjects.

The NSDAP soon learned about Kaufman’s Germany Must Die and they knew that some doofus in Newark was not acting on his own. To be sure, the threat to commit genocide on them influenced their own notion of the Final Solution. Why was the US involved in this fight?

Nor was Kaufman’s book an isolated incident. Indeed, the Morgenthau Plan was proposed in Morgenthau’s book Germany Is Our Problem, copyright 1945. Who is the ‘our’ referred to in the title, certainly not the US, obviously the Jews. Once again the US was called upon to eliminate the Germans and Germany from the face of the earth. It would be the Americans who did it, not the Jews. In that way the Jews could maintain their innocence.

Henry Morgenthau Jr. was FDR’s Secretary of the Treasury and according to Morgenthau the assistant president. If not earlier, in FDR’s last two terms he was completely in the hands of Jewish handlers if not their surrogate. Indeed, Morgenthau considered himself a co-president with FDR. Bernard Baruch was frequently referred to as an assistant president as well, perhaps mockingly. This was in the critical period of war’s end when Jewish plans were to be put into effect. Morgenthau’s plan called for the elimination of Germany as a country along with its people. Truly, when Hitler said that he knew that if the Germans failed their heads would roll in the sand. And there were twenty millions of Russians starved to death to prove it.

But, to return to Lindbergh and Ford. In a country in which the executive could eliminate people at will there can be no doubt that Ford and Lindbergh would have been disappeared along with the whole of America First. But was that possible? Could that happen here?

A strange thing happened to the Jewish mind that coalesced in 1940. The Jews believed that they were the true Americans; that the beautiful thing called America was their creation, considering Roosevelt as their creature, any who opposed his administration, that is themselves, were actually Fascists and Nazis and no longer true Americans. Ford and Lindbergh were actually Nazis in their minds out to subvert ‘their’ America and turn it into a dependency of Nazi Germany.

In 1940 the Nazi-Soviet pact was still in force yet there was still no outcry against the Communist USSR, the full force of hatred was directed only at Germany. By Germany I do not mean Nazi Germany but Germany and Germans as a whole. Thus they actually urged the genocide of Germans. Even today a great effort is made to convict every German, living or dead, as participating in the so-called genocide of the Jews.

It is a great mistake to not recognize the true nature of WWII, a war that is still raging.

So, just as the Jews would be rounded up in Germany in later years so the Jews wanted US dissidents rounded up and put in concentration camps as early as 1940. While urgent to themselves the notion was incomprehensible country wide. However, after the shooting war began, all of the most prominent dissidents were arrested and indicted on criminal charges. This was too much for many in the government who delayed the trial until 1944 when with victory imminent interest waned and the matter frizzled out.

Still, in 1940 the actual interference of the America First Committee prevented the administration, the Jews and the British from joining together in the war. It is necessary to point out that the vast majority of the country supported he AFC position. The administration still had their ace in the hole, anti-Semitism, if they could get the card played.

Lindbergh helped out on 9/11/41 with a speech in Des Moines Iowa when he said that the only people who desired war were Roosevelt, the Jews and the English. There it was, anti-Semitism, or seemingly so. Lindbergh and the AFC were discredited but that still wasn’t permission to mobilize. That came a couple months later on 12/7/41 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Even then that was no excuse to enter the European war. That happened a few days later when Hitler declared war on the US because of treaty obligations with Japan. Silly, but he did it. That ended US involvement even though Hitler’s declaration was futile. He had no means to attack the US.

Ever since the Balfour Declaration issued unilaterally by Great Britain and binding on no one else, that essentially guaranted Palestine to the Jews, they had seriously been working toward seizing the Arab territory to rename it Israel. The main provocateur was a man called Chaim Weizman. While the pot was stirred up by WWII which everyone knew before a shot was fired that Germany would lose, Weizman unconnected to any government, working strictly as a putative representative of the Jewish nation, unaffiliated, was working behind the scenes to move the political situation toward securing Palestine as the possession of the Jews. He collaborated, that is conspired, with US Jewish agents that included Ben Hecht the playwright and Meyer Lansky of the Jewish Mafia. These men conspired to move armaments to Palestine in violation of US laws. Had Roosevelt lived, the establishment of Israel would have been a given but his successor Harry Truman required some cozening or threats, that is manipulation, so that by 1948 the Jews achieved their goal and Israel was a fact. WWII had been a success. Thus, by using their criminal underground and political above ground agents the Jews acted as a unit world wide.

Back to 1940 and the elimination of the dissidents. As I said, by 1940 he Jews actually considered themselves as the real founding fathers, the real Americans of the US. The dissidents had been successfully portrayed as Fascists if in not outright Nazis and hence un-American; Immigrants had displaced natives in their own homeland and really with their own consent no less than the Jews would oust the Palestinians from their homeland.

The problem was how to dispose of those natives. It was easy enough to get the Roosevelt government to indict them, but it was necessary to get public opinion to condemn them. All enemies must be hated and quite frankly Ford and Lindbergh were still great American heroes but they did run with the so-called Isolationist crowd. Therefore the Nativist or Isolationist crowd had to be slandered as a whole.

The American public had to be persuaded to see the Nativists, today called Conservatives, as the Jews saw them. The Jews were, of course, absolutely convinced of their own virtue so that Nativists were ipso-facto anti-Semites. The idea then was to make it virtuous to hate Nativists. Hatred had to be created and it had to legal.

The Roosevelt administration had begun with a hate campaign against their predecessors, against the Old Guard of the Gilded Age, against Wall Street. A hate campaign against Roosevelt’s opponents, that is Nativists and Isolationists was an easy step. And the man to lead it was available. He was a Jewish writer by the name of Gustavus Myers.

The Jewish war against Germany should not be construed as directed solely at Hitler and the NSDAP; it was a war against the historic people of united Germany and it may be said to have begun when Joseph Oppenheimer, the Jud Suss, attempted the takeover of the Southern German State of Wurttemberg. The complete destruction of Germany and the genocide of the German people was the goal. This would be proven by the Morgenthau Plan for a conquered Germany in 1945.

Bernard Baruch, probably even before the end of WWI, was a proponent of perpetual wartime preparedness, thus advocating a military State like the much despised Prussians. No sooner had Roosevelt been inaugurated (his first inauguration being the last held on March 5th) in March than the NRA was rushed through Congress.

The NRA which was headed by Baruch’s WIB lieutenant and long time business associate Hugh Johnson was merely a replicate of Baruch’s War Industry Board adapted for the non-shooting war against the Depression. In addition under Felix Frankfurter the Jews immediately headed toward agriculture creating the AAA- Agricultural Adjustment Act and putting it firmly under their control. Sapiro triumphed.

The Jews had control of the currency through the Federal Reserve, commerce and industry though he NRA and the food supply through the AAA. Who now needed Sapiro’s co-ops?

Baruch had been preaching preparedness for a new war since the WIB had been disbanded. He had wanted many of the totalitarian aspects of the WIB imposed on the American population fulltime. That is that he wanted them to be the words of the government. This in itself is a replica of theocratic Judaism. It is no wonder then that the NRA ‘mobilized’ the people of the US for their war on the Depression of FDR. The NRA was mobilized for ‘total war.’ The population was not willing to accept such nonsense.

However, the WIB in the Great War touched on all the mores of the US. It called for a selfless, charitable contribution for the welfare of the US, the world and, indeed, civilization; it was ‘the war to end all wars. By full cooperation the citizen was made to feel valuable, performing an important function, confirming his opinion of himself as virtuous.

The difference in 1933 was that the situation was not the same. Virtue was well paying in 1917-18, in 1933 the average man and women could see no benefit in a war on the depression for their individual selves, there were still no jobs, the bills were still unpaid. The sacrifices were sterile. A little over a year later the Supreme Court struck down the NRA as unconstitutional and the socialist tactic had failed. That, however, was not the end of the affair.

FDR was shocked, dismayed, resentful at being thwarted. A few more setbacks and he grumbled at ‘the nine old men’ of the Supreme Court. The reason wasn’t that his plans violated the mores of the citizens of the US and were therefore unacceptable it was because the justices were old, wed to the past. What the court needed was new blood. Partisan New Dealers. In a frenzy then FDR moved to increase the nine old men with three or six New Dealers. Now he was messing with a deeply held more and he was slapped down hard. The rejection, along a newly elected dominant Republican Congress shook his confidence so that he was never the same after that.

Had he thought it out he would have realized that with patience old men would do what old men must, that is die or retire, which is what a few did shortly. But it was too late; the damage had been done.

Back to Bernard Baruch. By 1930 Baruch was the new leader of the Jewish war on American society. Jacob Schiff, the grand old patriarch of the Jews had passed in 1921, while the hard working president of the AJC, Louis Marshall, punched his ticket in 1929. Strangely enough that ‘ardent American Patriot’ had boarded the Gospel Train in Palestine where he was reviewing progress of the settlement.

Judaism is organized somewhat like the military so that chief men come and go without disruption. The chain of commanders always intact and besides new times require new men. When a leader is no longer in tune with the times he is replaced by any means necessary. So Baruch just assumed the role and the ‘truth went marching on.’

The war was carried on over many fronts. Just as the WIB, an ideal Jewish organization embraced every aspect of life but in a natural way so that battles were not recognized as those of an aggressor. The battles were reforms.

The Depression had aided collectivization or, regimentation as Whites expressed it, a great deal while emphasizing the haves and have nots, in other words, a move toward a class society. The Plutocracy found regimentation very useful. Whereas Henry Ford’s doubling of wages in 1912 challenged the Biblical dictum that the poor shall always be with us and the Roaring twenties gave the impression that everyone could be a millionaire, the Depression returned to the Biblical stricture that the poor would be numerous while being with us. This was part of the creation of the split of the US into what appear to be two permanent classes.

The socialism of FDR was deeply resented. The prevailing doctrine is socialism; Communism, National Socialism and Fascism are just three faces of Socialism. After 1933 the US had shifted to collective socialism although of its own blend. Still, while the Plutocracy embraced regimentation it rejected collectivism and socialism as a threat to itself. The clash of mores, that is Jewish and Anglo-Saxon, was enormous and would take generations to work out if it has yet.

Communism took center stage in 1917, followed by Mussolini’s Fascism about 1922 and Hitler’s National Socialism in 1933. The latter two were derivatives of or reactions to Communism. As has been noted Communism in the US was suppressed in 1921 and released in 1933. In the intervening years both Fascism and National Socialism had come into existence. The two were opposed to Communism much as Christianity was. The Jews who returned to Washington were Communists. The split in US society occurred when the old individualist mores collided with the new socialistic or Communist collectivist mores.

The Communists then characterized the old US mores practitioners as Fascists or Nazis. So, at that point in the thirties the population was divided into Socialist/Communists and Fascists/Nazis/Natives. Polarization to the nth degree. The division was held by Roosevelt siding with the Socialist/Communists. However this reality was little understood.

Now the situation was approaching a crisis and that critical moment would occur in 1940. For that to occur the past had to be discredited. As Bob Dylan would later sing, ‘I changed their faces and gave them brand new names.’ Obliterated, erased. That was exactly what the Roosevelt Administration and the Jews began upon their entry into Washington. Their first effort was to hold the last emblem of the Gilded Age ex-president Herbert Hoover up to maximum ridicule, even scratching out his name from Hoover Dam replacing it with Boulder.

The Democrats were a backward looking lot while the Jews in appropriating the country had to extinguish the memory of its past lords. In preparation for their ascension as the true creators the Jews had been demeaning, debunking being the term of the day, that is destroying the characters of these founders of the country. Thus they meant to destroy the past and replace it with Jewish heroes and mores.

It was for this purpose that Roosevelt had been groomed for the presidency. His election was greeted with great joy by the Jewish community. On the night he was elected several Jewish baby boys were named Franklin Delano. This is more than remarkable. Why should there have been such joy in the Jewish colonies unless great expectations were anticipated from Roosevelt? Such a reaction could not have been a thing of the moment but a long term investment in the career of FDR.

Indeed, FDR had been a significant figure in the Wilson administration. As such he was known to and undoubtedly knew such key figures as Bernard Baruch, Louis Brandeis and Felix Frankfurter. Indeed he would later refer to Brandeis as ‘our Isaiah.’ When Brandeis retired from the Supreme Court his replacement on ‘the Jewish seat’ was his disciple Felix himself.

FDR had been a large ornament to American manhood before he was struck down by polio in 1921. He had a handsome, arrogant fellow by all accounts; to the manor born. He was important to the Jews as a goy of marketable quality while easily manipulated to say the least. He was therefore indoctrinated and in on the scheme. He was chosen as the Democratic vice-presidential candidate for James Cox in the 1920 election. It was assumed by the Democrats that that election was in the bag especially as the Republican candidate Warren G. Harding was considered to be an inept if cordial fellow. The Cox-FDR defeat was a blow as great as that of Donald Trump’s defeat of Hillary Clinton. It was incomprehensible and it set Jewish plans back twelve years. There must have been a lot invested in Roosevelt.

The Jews had also appropriated Al Smith of NYC as their boy. During the twenties Smith served as their governor of New York State. He was carefully managed by the Jew Belle Moskowitz. He was put up for president against Herbert Hoover in 1928 and found wanting. To replace Smith as governor Roosevelt was dragooned from his sickbed. He was very reluctant. Devastated by the use of his legs he was desperate to regain them and was already using his spa in Warm Springs Georgia.

FDR was installed as Governor of New York to replace the unfortunate Al Smith who the Jews now abandoned much to his chagrin. One imagines his term was made easy while the propaganda machine magnified his acts that indeed implemented the Jewish agenda. When Hoover’s administration was trashed, as the propaganda machine used every defamatory trick available, the election of Roosevelt in 1932 was assured.

There is a problem with Roosevelt that is never discussed and that is what effect did his incapacitation by polio have on his mind? How did he accept the change from his handsome dashing prime to the wheel chair bound wreck who could not stand up or take an unaided step. In short, in cruel terms, a cripple.

Not well.

Roosevelt probably knew that a disabled king could not rule. Throughout history the rule had been that a ruler must not have a single blemish. Even a facial scar acquired in war disqualified him. Thus FDR went to great lengths to conceal his disability. It was never mentioned by the media, they were silenced, indeed, there were legions of people who never knew that FDR had had polio and couldn’t walk. One imagines that the before polio Roosevelt was the image he held in mind of himself after polio. His psychology was definitely affected but the question is how?

Once in office Roosevelt turned on the ‘capitalists’ of the Gilded Age. The exuberant wide open laissez-faire cowboys of 1865-1914 were to be condemned, erased, and if possible wiped from the pages of history. In this both Jews and Democrats were united. Consequently, criminal charges were levied against a host of the Old Guard with at least one sent to prison. Herbert Hoover himself became the personal bete noir of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The defamation Hoover had endured as president was as nothing compared to what to was to come.

Perhaps Hoover represented the whole Gilded Age to FDR. Until his presidency Hoover was considered one of the greatest men alive. He was a self-made man, an orphan who went on to become a graduate of Stanford University and from thence to be considered one of, if not, the greatest mining engineer of his age. He earned a considerable fortune nor did he hesitate to use it for meritorious purposes. During WWI when the whole Belgian population was starving to death their survival depended solely on his good offices as he negotiated with the Germans to allow food through their lines accepting their guarantee that they would not appropriate the food for themselves. The German honored that agreement and the Belgians were saved.

In post-war Germany when once again their whole population was being starved to death by an Allied blockade that would allow no food to be delivered to them. Their plight was lifted by the sole activities of Hoover who over the objections of the Allies forced them to lift the blockade.

Again, in post-war Russia during the huge famine of 1921 killing millions, over the objections of Lenin’s communist government Hoover came to the rescue. He was viewed as a miracle man. This was the man the Roosevelt administration and Roosevelt personally set out to destroy. Hoover was spotless; their only tool was an unwarranted defamation. The administration sank to the filthiest means.

Hoover had begun the great dam across he Colorado River that has made Las Vegas, Arizona and California prosperity possible. The dam was called Hoover Dam as a tribute to his engineering skills. Roosevelt changed the name to Boulder Dam rather than Hoover’s name should be erased throughout history. In an attempt to equal or surpass Hoover Dam, the administration decided to build the great Grand Coulee Dam across the great Columbia River in Washington State. And then he threw in Bonneville Dam further downstream from Washington to the Oregon side.

While Hoover Dam was built in a narrow defile where the Colorado descended from the plateau, Grand Coulee was merely a mile wide. At that width it had to be a gravity dam, that is the weight of the dam had to exceed the pressure of the water behind. The most concrete ever used to that point was poured across the mile wide Columbia gap. One imagines that Roosevelt grinned from ear to ear when it was completed. And all that electrical power was socialized.

Roosevelt was relentless in his defamation of the great mind, Herbert Hoover. His persecution of Hoover ended only with his death in 1945. After that Hoover was able to regain a portion of he reputation although even today he is only remembered for the Depression’s Hoovervilles of homeless people. Now, that was effective defamation. Where was the Anti-Defamation League when you needed them.

It is difficult to understand the hostility, even hatred, of the past. The Gilded Age is an amazing oneoff period in the history of the world. The transformation from a primarily agricultural horse drawn society to an industrial megalith of billion dollar corporations. A period when horses were replaced on the farms with internal combustion gasoline tractors. Oil had transformed transportation by highway, railway and the airways, and this was all done in forty spectacular years. Roosevelt was anti-big as was his administration. In many ways they were paramount reactionaries.

Perhaps more important was the difference in the magnitude of scale. Things went from miniscule to gigantic while the average human mind was still at the miniscule level. Gigantic rail systems, gigantic industrial agglomerations. The currency and economic changes, the rise of the great New York Stock Exchange from a mere nothing conducted under a tree to the seeming arbiter of the economic life of the nation. Perhaps the Stock Exchange was the easiest target, perhaps in its cataclysmic crash, an economic Armageddon with so many lives destroyed, the life of the nation imperiled, was the small minded man’s revenge.

In any event the Roosevelt administration looking back in anger chose to pillory as many of these ‘robber barons’ or descendants of robber barons as they could. Like the ancient Egyptians chiseling the name of Hatshepsut from the monuments to eradicate her memory from history, the Roosevelt Administration sought to erase the Gilded Age from history, to remake the US over again in its own image.

One is reminded of the advent of the Jefferson Administration when he had finally achieve power and said that an entirely new approach to America was to replace that of Washington and Adams. By that he meant that the Illuminati, so hated and feared by Adams, would take control of American society. Jefferson was of the sect, still managed by Adam Weisshaupt from his refuge in Germany. The Abbe Baruel’s Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism, one of the more famous books in history, was rushed in translation to the US in 1795 as a warning of danger and in response John Adams had passed the Alien and Sedition Laws to stifle the inflow of Jacobins. One of Jefferson’s first acts was to repudiate those laws and he established the new order in the US thus repudiating the past much as Roosevelt was doing and for much the same political agenda.

And then the Civil War pushed the US in a new direction, the greatest period of laissez faire that ever existed. Now Roosevelt was repudiating the past in the same manner as Jefferson while its reaction is being realized in the Presidency of Donald Trump.

Roosevelt issued indictments against dozens of the Old order as though their very lives had been crimes. In many ways he anticipated the show trials that Stalin would initiate later in the decade. Roosevelt’s indictments were actually futile. The older J.P. Morgan was safe in his grave beyond his reach but his son, the young J.P. Morgan was there. He was forced to sit with a dwarf on his knee as a symbol of humiliation. Perhaps it was thought that this symbolically cut the older Morgan in the person of the younger down to size. Or, perhaps Roosevelt took this method to rage against the polio that struck him down.

Once started there was no stopping them. Perhaps this interpretation is too strong but having imposed his will on the US though the WIB Bernard Baruch was able to continue to direct the US toward his goals indicated by the War Industries Board. Total war was now directed at the United States for the benefit of the Jewish people. Baruch was seemingly able to mobilize the US against itself. In keeping with his idea of total war the taxing system was organized to expropriate Old Americans of their wealth. Income tax rates would soar to ninety percent of income, expropriatory death taxes would destroy old fortunes impoverishing the new generations. The old mansions went vacant and unused, no longer affordable.

According to the Jewish literary spokesman, Gustavus Myers, the goal was even to prevent the formation of new fortunes. Judging from today this goal has been an ultimate failure but then within a few years the great fortunes of the Gilded Age had been appropriated. By 1940 success seemed inevitable. The country had been impoverished both high and low.
