Let us return to the Bolshevik Revolution and come forward. The Bolshevik Revolution, the October Revolution, occurred at the end of 1917. At that time the War Industries Board in the US was in existence but not in its final form. The WIB was reorganized in March of 1918 and Bernard Baruch was named its autocrat, its Czar with unlimited powers. This cannot be too much emphasized; to oppose him was to incur his wrath and he could dispossess you of your industrial possessions. Baruch then reorganized the US into a totalitarian State. Between him and George Creel of the CPI- Committee of Public Information the State was put into a condition of Total War.

You look into the abyss and the abyss looks back at you. The US was not isolated; what happened in the US didn’t necessarily stay in the US. Europeans were watching and the US was setting examples. The organization of the country and its peoples for Total War. This organization of the Country for Total War was much admired by the soon to emerge NSDAP of Germany. George Creel’s

 

astounding organization of propaganda under the auspices of the Committee for Public Information squelched all dissent and put the US in lockstep.

At the same time Baruch’s organization of not only industrial America but the regimentation or proposed regimentation of the people won the admiration of the Italian dictator, Benito Mussolini who organized Italy along the same lines to be followed by Wolf Hitler in Germany. To this may be added that US businessmen viewed the right about face of American civilization from individualism to extreme collectivism with amazement. They saw that the ability to manipulate the population so easily opened new doors.

Communism, like it or not, is a form of Judaism. Fascism is a reaction to Communism and makes Fascism also related to Judaism in form. Fascism was essentially a creation of Bernard Baruch who was Jewish thus confirming Fascism as a variation of Judaism.

So it was that the advent of Communism and its Fascist offshoot began to reorganize Western Civilization. All the rules were changed overnight, but this was recognized by few people. The majority continued to act according to established mores but those mores no longer produced the same result. Thus the sense of direction was lost. Still, a great Judaization of Western Civilization had been achieved. Monumental. Plus the years 1917-20 had been thrown into complete turmoil. Perhaps the temporary wartime unanimity achieved in the US spoiled the Wilson administration.

President Wilson of the US had concocted a notion of a League of Nations that was supposed to function like clockwork to prevent future wars. The League was actually formed in Europe but Wilson needed the consent of the Senate to permit the US to join. Certain idealists or utopians were absolutely convinced of the League’s potential efficacy and were urgent in the need for its acceptance. Other realists in the Senate scoffed at the idea and rejected the League.

Wilson nearly killed himself in campaigning for it but was incapacitated for life by a stroke instead.   The last two years of his presidency found him bedbound and unable to function. It seems clear that otherwise he would sought a third term to achieve his purpose. The Democratic candidates for the 1920 election, James Cox and Franklin Delano Roosevelt pledged to realize the League’s adoption. The Republican candidate Warren Harding gave some vague assurances. Harding won the election and the League was forgotten.

Now there came a crisis in ideology. The advocates of the League felt they had the moral high ground while being absolutely right. They were shattered by their rejection. The feeling was not unlike when Donald Trump upset the plans of the League’s successors in the 2016 election.

The feeling then was that the multitude of ‘deplorables’ could not be trusted to do the right thing, in effect that democracy was a failure. It followed then that some method of control must be adopted to ensure that the public accepted the wishes of their betters. The question was how. Perhaps goaded to action by President Harding’s inauguration on March 5, 1921, on July 29th, 1921 the members filed articles of incorporation as the Council On Foreign Relations. The method was to work from the top down. There was to be a new concept of democracy. The CFR would select and groom both the candidates for the presidency. The goal was a one party system, essentially a constitutional dictatorship not too dissimilar from the lines of the Soviet Union, Italy and finally Germany but with he illusion of choice and ‘democracy.’

Both candidates were to be selected by them so that barring differences in personal style the program would be the same. The twenties were held by the rump of the post-Civil War Gilded Age GOP but with the 1932 election FDR became the CFR’s first president and with the possible exceptions of Kennedy and Nixon the CFR candidates were presidents until the current Donald Trump upset the plan.

The Jews, who although affiliated with the CFR, functioned autonomously. As noted, the years 1918-21 were fraught with difficulties for them. They, too, fearful of an uncontrolled public had to devise methods of thought control. Fortunately for them their man, the psychologist Sigmund Freud, remained on post in Vienna until 1938 when because of the Nazi presence it was thought judicious for him to remove to England.

It is impossible to stress the importance of this man too much. His influence has never been properly defined but in my opinion he is the ‘grey eminence’ behind the period from c. 1900 to c. 1945 although he committed suicide in 1939. He had had cancer of the mouth for twenty years but it still hadn’t killed him. The stench from his wounds was so bad that his dog wouldn’t come close to him preferring to sit on the far side of the room. Tragic story, actually.

Freud, back at the turn of the century, said that he had abandoned hypnotism, then important in treating mental ailments. He found, he said, that he could achieve as much by free association. That is to say he had exchanged one method of hypnotism for another. Now, hypnotism is merely suggestion on a prepared mind. Thus masses of people could be hypnotized at once if you focused their minds and implanted the suggestion. Thus by focusing the mind on the injustice of prejudice as defined by him one could implant the notion of anti-Semitism and that anti-Semitism was a sin or crime of the first magnitude; reprehensible to the nth degree. The idea was sound but how to implement it; what could be the delivery system.

As I mentioned earlier Freud was a member of the Vienna lodge of the International Order of B’nai B’rith. That group was a Jewish brotherhood based on the Freemasonic order. The Vienna lodge met once a week; Freud joined in 1895 and it is said that he attended religiously all his life until he left Vienna. He said that their agenda was a match for his. Freud’s agenda was to destroy Europe and Europeans. Work it out from there.

The B’nai B’rith was and is an international order with headquarters in NYC. All, or nearly all, of the leading Jewish figures in the US spent part or all of their summers in Europe. It is impossible that they didn’t associate with leading figures of European Jewry to plan and conspire.

To use as an example Bernard Baruch, who said he spent his summers in Europe. Baruch had been included in the US contingent to the Paris Peace Conference. There he met and associated with the leading Jewish figures as well as meeting many important Europeans including Winston Churchill with whom he had a close lifelong relationship, even to the point of advancing money that he didn’t expect to be returned. He became fast friends with Churchill spending a week or so in London summers at his home while Churchill when in the US made Baruch’s NYC home his headquarters, according to Baruch.

It would seem certain that Baruch would make a pilgrimage to Vienna to make the acquaintance of the world famous Sigmund Freud. My point here is summers in Europe were great strategy planning sessions for the Jews as Henry Ford indicated.

Now, ever since the Civil War the US had developed a reputation in Europe as a destination of freedom, liberty and economic abundance. I can’t help but believe that Europeans saw Americans as simpletons. Certainly the Jews saw the US as the place where their dream of dominion could be realized unlike Russia where most of them lived.

Already by 1914 millions were in the US while plans were in place to transfer the whole population of European Jewry to the US before the war intervened.

After the war the situation had completely changed. Whole areas were devastated, cities towns and villages destroyed. Hardship and starvation everywhere. US Jews rushed supplies to relieve Jewish distress. From Germany to Russia the war hadn’t even ended as revolution and civil wars continued for years. It is no wonder then that in addition to the whole Jewish population millions upon millions of Europeans were expected to flood into the US, a very desperate mass of people, impoverished and nasty whatevers. Obviously the America of the past would be completely ruined.

Immigration had been building before the war. Even in 1914 in the seven months before the war began 1.4 million people arrived. The total for the year would have been well over two million, a record. Even in 1920 over a million entered. The prospect was for perhaps five million or more a year. A totally unassimilable number. Chaos would have ensued, clear to any sensible American mind.

Such a catastrophe had to be avoided hardwired internationalists were screaming ‘Let ‘em in, bring ‘em over.’ Totally insane.

But finally immigration controls were imposed. National quotas were installed from 1921 to the 1924 Johnson Act. Even then human traffickers smuggled in hundreds of thousands, but at least untold millions were kept at bay. Jewish plans came to naught and the infra structure built at Galveston and New Orleans was never to be used.

Freud, then, devised the psychological assault on Western mores and culture. Borrowing as always Freud had been greatly attracted by the Russian Ivan Pavlov and his studies on conditioning in the early first and second decades. The French psychologist Gustav LeBon had made massive strides in the use of hypnotism by his studies in mob psychology that Freud absorbed and even credited to Le Bon, nearly unique for him. The transitioning of the US from individualism to collectivism by wartime essentially hypnotism and conditioning had made a great impression on both camps. The war had shown what could be done if the right conditions were created, the suggestions planted and repeated conditioning executed.

This begs the question, then, if the Great Depression had been a device to corrupt the US. Certain psychological techniques were being developed to direct public opinion. These were called public relations and advertising. One of the foremost practitioners of both was a Jewish fellow by the name of Edward Bernays. As any student of Freud knows his wife was named Martha Bernays and yes, Edward Bernays was Freud’s nephew, and they did have a fairly close relationship.

Eddie Bernays, a US resident traveled to Vienna to visit his uncle from time to time. They had long talks and summer walks. Eddie Bernays had been associated with Bernard Baruch’s WIB and had kept his eyes open. He had seen the public easily manipulated and was impressed. Such manipulation was discussed in accordance with Freud’s and the B’nai B’rith agenda. Freud gave Bernays a few of his writings to translate and publish which Eddie did. By the twenties the propaganda machine had elevated Freud to one of the world’s three most influential men, along with Einstein and Marx giving in Jewish eyes and a large part of goyish eyes a trifecta, so that Eddie’s relationship with Freud didn’t hurt his career.

Eddie was cold and calculating. He would take any job. During the twenties women were not great smokers. Lucky Strike’s George Washington Hill, wanted to change that he hired Eddie. Actually in order to keep prominent ad men from other employment he hired not only Bernays but the more important Ivy Lee along with the chief advertising agency of the time Albert Lasker’s Lord and Thomas of Chicago. Eddie was paid the least. Eddie in collaboration with fellow Freudian, A.A. Brill came up with the notion of calling cigarettes ‘freedom torches’; got together a group of young society women and on Easter Sunday 1929 had them light up for the NYC Easter Parade. In those days the Easter Parade was a major event where men and women dressed in their very finest strolled through the main streets of town. In his own way Eddie was corrupting Christianity. Irving Berlin, of course, wrote one of his biggest hits about the Easter Parade which according to some Jewish writers turned Easter from a Christian religious event into a fashion parade.

Eddie had the photographers out and the NY Times put a feature on the Freedom Torches on the front page giving it maximum exposure. Women’s mores were changed in the light of a flash bulb.

During the same time radio became a viable medium while sound was introduced to movies. Television had actually been achieved this early while by the late thirties it would have been taken commercial but was delayed by the War emerging after in the late forties. These tremendous propaganda tools would then go to work on American mores.

Just as an interesting aside, Sax Rohmer in one of his Fu Manchu stories of the late thirties had an interesting scene in which the TV screen was used to hypnotize certain subjects. While Rohmer hypnotized one on one, the medium became one of the great mass hypnotic tools of our times.

It was necessary then to control the content of the emerging media propaganda tools. The Jews, of course, deny controlling the media and they attack you as an anti-Semite if you point out the obvious. The basic psychology of the period should be becoming clear. The term anti-Semite was first used in 1875 by the German, Wilhelm Mars, and was appropriated by the Jews and has become the workhorse of their conditioning efforsts. All these media were perfect as hypnoid producers. To get your suggestion through you have to prepare the mind and the sight and sound of movies of movies and TV are the perfect media. Mores are subtly changed, reputations made or destroyed. Notions of good and bad are posited. Slaves and guardians are identified. By the sixties re-education through the media was in high gear.

Things were pretty rough in the twenties and thirties. As WWI pointed out, wars are the perfect vehicles to prepare the mind to accept suggestions. As has been pointed out the Paris Peace Treaties paved the way for WWII and the percipient figured out that would come in twenty years and so it did.   More important for the US the war began with FDR’s inauguration. On the one hand the Jews immediately declared war on Germany and on the other Roosevelt was given dictatorial full war powers to ‘wage war on the depression.’ So, he fumbled through his first two terms waging war on the depression and changing American mores to an incredible degree. A war mentality, then, prevailed throughout Roosevelt’s presidency.

Baruch was plumping for war from 1920 on and that accelerated with FDR’s presidency. He was insisting on preparedness, thus pretty much the war machine that the Prussians were condemned for and which we have achieved since the end of WWII. It was what Eisenhower called the Industrial Military Complex. In other words everything WWII was fought against. Preparedness would advance the collectivity that the Jews desired while a propaganda machine along the lines of the Creel Committee would keep people agitated and open to suggestion much as we have today.

With WWII on their horizon whoever controlled mores when the war came would control the shots. The Democrats figured that after Harding died the colorless Coolidge would be easy to defeat in 1924. Coolidge fooled them and the Coolidge Prosperity, the New Era, the land of millionaires followed. Then when Herbert Hoover handily defeated Al Smith in 1928 the handwriting was on the wall. If the prosperity continued, when the 1940 and the projected war occurred, according the Democrats the wrong people would be calling the shots and the opportunity to remake the country in the Liberal and Jewish image would be missed.

However, if a great depression occurred during Hoover’s administration continuity would be broken and the Democrats would get in and be in when the war and opportunity to reorganize the country could begin in dead earnest.

Wilson had created the Federal Reserve in 1913 and the creation was peculiar. The Federal Reserve is a private bank and outside the control or even influence of the president. While Hoover has been criticized for not reining in the Stock Market all he could is plead with the Federal Reserve to raise the discount rate which he did and was ignored. It follows then that the Fed knew exactly what was happening and making it happen.

The owners of the bank, the Federal Reserve, are nine international, eight since Lehman went bust, plus the Rockefeller interests. They are the only authorized issuers of US currency. They print the money and they collect interest on its use. Every dollar you possess is paying interest to the ten banks of the Fed.

The Fed controls the Discount rate hence the expansion and contraction of the economy. This is solely at the discretion of the Jews. A wonderful if risky way of buying stocks, speculating, is buying on margin. That is, that by putting up a percentage of your own money you can buy 100 percent of the stock. Of course you’re paying interest to the banks on the borrowed margin, which is a nice deal for the banks as your stocks are collateral. If your stock prices contract to a certain point you will have a margin call and be required to deposit more of your own money to fill in the margin. If you are unable to do this, your speculation fails completely and you are bust. A certain risk, you see. So, after having encouraged the speculation the Fed raised the discount rate and the crash occurred. Over production of goods was said to be the cause. OK.

Today the maximum margin you can borrow is fifty percent. In other words if you have hundred dollars in an account you can borrow fifty dollars. In the twenties the margin was 90%. That is, if you had a hundred dollars you could buy a thousand dollars worth of stock but you were really strung out. Obviously, a very small drop in the price of your stocks would elicit a margin call. The lower margin requirement was a dog whistle for speculators.

Once again, President Hoover has been castigated for not ordering the Fed to increase the discount rate earlier to curb speculation before it got out of hand and reduce the speculative fever. But as the Fed, a private corporation, was legally outside the president’s control, all he could do was remonstrate which he did. Thus, just as speculation was at the highest fever pitch the Fed lowered the discount rate and pushed speculation beyond supportable limits; the market came crashing down, and it continued to do so during Hoover’s presidency.

In his autobiography Hoover says that all his recovery efforts were negated by destructive forces as he seemed to on the verge of success. Now, the CFR was founded in 1921. In 1930 Hoover was told to toe the line in the way of collectivism and refused. As a representative of the Old America he was an individualist. But his refusal meant that he was a marked man. Times were changing under the influence of Communist collectivism. The way was being prepared for what Eugene Lyons called The Red Decade, the title of his book, of the thirties and essentially the Roosevelt Administration. Judaism, Fascism, National Socialism are all variations of the same thing, so lesson’s learned under the fascistic rule of Baruch’s WIB now seemed very attractive. Hoover warned emphatically that if Roosevelt were elected collectivism would replace individualism. The electorate didn’t understand or didn’t care.

Roosevelt’s election released repressed collectivism from the repression of the Republican Interregnum and the forces of collectivism flooded back into Washington DC.

The contest for the soul of America was renewed with a vengeance. While the Jews had been excluded by the three twenties’ Republican presidents that did not mean that they were idle. The noise of the seven year Ford campaign had provided a cover for Jewish activities. Even though Harding had suppressed the Communist revolution in the US during the first year of his administration and J. Edgar Hoover became the first director of the new Federal Bureau of Investigation and made his mission the destruction of Communism the socialist impulse was so strong and diverse that it regrouped and functioned as a clandestine organization working underground until Der Tag arrived Roosevelt’s election was Der Tag, the day.

As mentioned the hastening of the day was being continued above ground in a surreptitious way by manipulation of the currency by the Federal Reserve. Not surprisingly Bernard Baruch in his role as Czar of the WIB included the management of the currency as a weapon in organizing the country for total war. Hence the war carried on using the currency as a weapon. The engineered stock market crash of 1929 was the Jewish equivalent of Pearl Harbor.

The crash and the prolongation of the depression reopened the door for the re-entry into Washington and the control of the US no matter how limited by traditions that have never been overcome. Those mores are well founded.

The US was placed on a war footing with the reentry of the Democrats immediately. FDR was given by Congress the role of dictator with full wartime powers, in the ‘war’ against the depression. And this was a war that would never be resolved until the Jewish war against Germany began in 1940-42. In actual fact the Jews in the US declared war on Germany in 1933 when their US spokesman the NYC lawyer and AJC official, Samuel Untermyer announced it. He indirectly spoke in the name of the United States of America with Franklin Delano Roosevelt presiding.

Concerning agriculture in the context of world events in the two decades before WWII. With the advent of WWI food as a weapon of mass destruction became prominent. The starvation of the Belgian people may have been an accident of war and it is also possibly a premonition of its use for mass destruction. One must always remember the hostility toward the other by the Jews. The mass murder of Egyptians and Cypriots at the beginning of the Jewish-Roman war and the preparations for the mass murder of Europeans in 1666 lend credence to the idea that the Second Thirty Years’ War was a carefully thought out plan of the Jews to cause the Europeans to kill themselves a la Cadmus in ancient Greece. After the war the blockade of Germany was continued for some time so that no food supplies were purposely allowed to relieve the German starvation. The result would have been the mass murder of millions upon millions of Germans if not the entire nation under the worst possible scenario. How long the blockade would have continued except for the intervention of the American Herbert Hoover can’t be known.

This was extreme German hatred. That hatred had nothing to do with the war but began in 1866 when Bismarck unified Germany. Prior to that the Germans had been an inconsequential congeries of small amusing principalities. They were mocked in the Ruritanian novels that began appearing shortly after the unification. With the unification the Germans became a power and therefore a threat. Economically they were outcompeting both England and the US in world trade. In Russia where they had been welcome as farmers and developers of the Ukraine prior to 1870 as their superior talents brought them into prominence politically and socially the Czars turned against them in a manner worse than the Jews. And of course the Jews hated the Germans for their very superiority against which they too could not compete. Without Hoover’s intervention then the Germans would probably have been allowed to starve the death. There was no relief of the embargo in sight. This would have been a German Holocaust and genocide.

Herbert Hoover, acting on his own initiative, without governmental assistance had nearly single handedly relieved the distress of Belgium perhaps saving a few million Europeans lives there much to the chagrin of the Jews. Now with Germany threatened and no indication of the blockade being lifted Hoover, once again acting on his own while Wilson and Baruch sat on their hands, on his own initiative provided relief for the Germans, once again saving tens of millions of European lives. One must remember that Baruch, a Jew, was in control of all commodities including food supplies.

And then again, in Russia in 1920-21 the German population of the Volga river basin and the Ukraine was purposely starved. In the 1850s-80s The Russian government induced large contingents of Germans to settle the South of Russia to develop the Ukraine. Thousands settled in the South and a whole German nation evolved at the mouth of the Volga. These people would later be destroyed as a nation when Stalin deported them en masse to the gulags of Siberia.

 

In 1920-21 Lenin requisitioned even seed grain so no crops could be planted. Throughout Southern Russia and the Volga death ruled, between five and ten million Europeans were starved to death. It would be foolish to believe that the Central Europeans weren’t watching and that they didn’t know who was causing the wholesale murder.

Hoover’s ARA or American Relief Association was denied entrance to relieve the suffering. Lenin’s government even tried to extort millions from the ARA for permission to enter Russia. When the situation became irremediable and the horror couldn’t be concealed he was forced by those circumstances to allow Hoover access to relieve the Ukrainian and German population.

Nor was this the last time the Soviets used food as a weapon of mass destruction. In 1932 the event in the Ukraine called the Holodomor was created in which at least ten million people were purposely starved to death. This time there was no Hoover to provide relief as FDR and the Democrats were in office.

We have then a pattern of food being used as a weapon of mass destruction from 1914 through 1939. The following war slaughtered its tens of millions. This pattern in Europe was unique to the period of the thirty years war. What was happening in the US? We have a different tactic to produce the same results but with less efficacy. The process was initiated by David Lubin. He was born in Poland, lived in Massachusetts, then wending his way to Sacramento. As Wikipedia has it:

Quote:

While in Sacramento, he bought a fruit ranch near (the city) and land for raising wheat. His knowledge of agriculture assisted him when he helped found the California Fruit Growers Union. He then helped settle Eastern European Jewish refugees who worked on various farms in the area and in 1891, be became a director of the International Society for the Colonization of Russian Jews. He then began a campaign for subsidies and protection for farmers initially in California but eventually on an international scale.

Unquote.

Lubin then formed an idea for an international chamber of agriculture, then in 1896 he removed to Italy to develop his plan receiving in 1904 a subsidy from King Victor Emmanuel III. Lubin died in 1919 of the flu.

So now, once again, let me remind the readers that the Jews consider themselves as an autonomous people owing loyalty to no one but themselves as represented by their god. As such they live amongst the nations but are never part of them. Only when their interests coincide do they act as the others, otherwise their plans and goals are not the same as the nations they inhabit. They can remove and do so at the drop of a hat with no real discomfort.

You will notice the characteristics of the Wandering Jew in the life of David Lubin. Note particularly Lubin’s role of settling colonies of Jews internationally. ‘In 1891, he became the director of the International Society for the Colonization of Russian Jews.’ This was at the peak of the migration of the Eastern Jews, that is the Jews of the Pale of Settlement in Poland and Russia. Ford was mocked and defamed by Louis Marshall, Bernard Baruch and others for speaking of the international Jews yet here are examples.

Colonization means the organization of treks by groups of people. Thus, as director of the Colonization Society one supposes that Lubin worked with organizers on the European end while distributing colonies in the US and elsewhere. It was strictly against US immigration laws to organize immigration, the idea was that immigrants made individual choices.

As to Aaron Sapiro. Sapiro came from an impoverished background in Oakland, California. He found a way to get a law degree. Then he found his way to Sacramento where he must have come into contact with the Lubin Colonization organization who taught him the elements of the Lubin cooperative plan. It is possible that he met and talked to Lubin during his return visit to California in 1906. From there he launched an energetic system for organizing all kinds of commodities into co-ops.

At this time in 1906 Albert Lasker was setting up the Sunkist umbrella to sell the produce of these co-ops so that he must have come into contact with Sapiro and possibly also met Lubin. Subsequently Lasker’s advertising agency Lord and Thomas maintained a constant presence in California. It can be seen then that Baruch, Lasker and Sapiro are connected as Ford claimed.

Organizing the co-ops was not cheap for the farmers as Sapiro looted them for hundreds of thousands of dollars over the next couple decades. In current dollars that represents millions.

Baruch included farmers in his group of special interests. He therefore must have sought out, perhaps on one of his annual national tours to keep a finger on the pulse, Sapiro, or perhaps Sapiro sought him out. In any event they became associates.

Eugene Meyer Jr. was a Wall Street manipulator and ‘banker’ like Baruch and he was close to Baruch. Albert Lasker was a public relations practitioner and a professional Jew. Together with Sapiro the quartet were foci of Ford’s exposure of their agricultural schemes. Of course they denied everything except for Sapiro who had to take the brunt of the situation.

Their scheme was to organize growers into co-ops in which they, the leaders of the co-ops, took possession of the crops, warehoused them, supposedly selling them at the most advantageous prices. So the growers incurred the expense of growing the crops and then the added expense of administration while surrendering control of their crops or merchandise in other words. The administrators then paid growers when they sold from their warehouses, deducting administration fees, of course. The growers were at their mercy.

The purpose, say with wheat, seems to have been to eventually monopolize possession of the crops thus being in control of the food supply. This was apparently Lubin’s intent on a global scale.

Ford quickly divined where the co-op movement was headed and how the farmers were going to be fleeced. Ford noticed that the Jews were behind it, objected and exposed the plot in his International Dearborn Independent.

Of course the Jews objected. The AJC with Louis Marshall as president, the Anti-Defamation League and all the numerous other Jewish groups including the Hollywood studios began a campaign of defamation against Ford and conspired with Sapiro to sue Ford. The results are known.

So, what was the Jewish cabal led by Aaron Sapiro doing? It is interesting that today rather the farming co-ops the Monsanto Corp. has developed wheat grains of which the crop of the grains is sterile so that farmers don’t save a portion of their crop for next season but must buy new fertile seed from Monsanto every year. Thus Monsanto gets a cut of every crop grown.  Monsanto then has control of that part of the food chain. They possess a weapon of mass destruction. That most likely was Sapiro’s intent.

Thus one had a sequence of events of the starving of Europeans from Belgium through post-war Germany and the 1921 Soviet starvation of Russia followed by the Holodomor of the Ukraine and the Volga Germans of 1932. Then one had the strange food manipulations during FDR’s administration during which it is said that people actually starved to death. There was the strange interlude of the mass slaughter of the pigs. That pigs were chosen for slaughter is interesting because pork is taboo for Jews. Since then food has not been used as WMD. But then the Thirty Years War was drawing to a close but the genocidal effort of the Germans continued until about 1950. Yet, Monsanto….

After The War Was Over

 

The big war, WWI, ended in 1918 but war raged all across Europe for several years. The German revolution, an extension of the Bolshevik Revolution, touched off conflicts running through Germany sporadically and the fighting between the Communists and the NSDAP continued for ten years until the NSDAP won and Hitler took control. In Hungary the war between the Communists, essentially Jews, and the Whites raged with horrible crimes and exterminations committed by the Communists.

In Russia the war between the Reds and the Whites, Czarists otherwise, was carried on with unprecedented brutality. Released from Czarist dominance and now in control the Jews realized Dostoyevsky’s prediction that if they were free to do it they would exterminate the Russians root and branch right then as in fact over the next twenty years they would exterminate Russians in the tens of millions. The Chmielnicki massacres of Jews and Poles in the seventeenth century in the Ukraine were now visited on the Ukrainians with food used as a weapon of mass destruction and deprived of it Ukrainians were starved to death in their millions.

The Jewish god was dead, the supernatural obviated as the Jewish ego in its purist form revealed itself. Remember the Amalekites, and, now, remember the Ukrainians.   And so, the European Holocaust raged across Europe. How many Europeans died in that great European Holocaust will never be known. Thus in 1919 as the chaos continued it became obvious that the Jews were the cause of world unrest.

A great but ineffective movement rose to expose the Jewish threat. There was never a period when the Jewish threat was so obvious nor a time when a solution was so elusive. Knowing is one thing, being able to do something about it Is quite another. Disguised as a universal political movement in which all nationalities were subsumed in an apparent sole ideology, that of Communism, to the mas of the population Jewish influence was not obvious and easily denied. The Jewish ego had been converted into ‘Social Justice’ which is different from ‘Justice.’

The Protocols of Zion formulated in 1897 before this Revolution had escaped notice, but now, as one might expect, they were seized on as a red herring. Themselves innocuous and rather foolish, as conspiracy fare they were too obvious to be taken seriously. Such manifestations today are so common and so much more preposterous that they are perceived as threats to no one. The James Bond series of movies mocked the Protocols and turned them into great fun. Although the Jews still use them as a bogeyman to frighten small children there is no there there.

Nevertheless they caused quite a flap at the time, the Jews professing to be horrified that such a travesty of Judaism could be written while certain other Jews held them up as a threat to civilization or, at least, ‘our’ democracy. Perhaps in the circumstances they were. In the event all exposes of Jewish intentions centered around them.

In Europe the Leaders apprehension was the NSDAP of Germany. The true war in Europe was between Germans and Jews while in the US Henry Ford carried the battle to them. Supposedly an arch-anti-Semite, which was not true, all his ideas and announcements were criminally distorted to defame him and after twenty-one years the campaign was successful. Thus the achievements of the most decent of men and perhaps the greatest American of the twentieth century have been buried and he is remembered only as a ‘vicious anti-Semite.’ Degradation of the worst sort.

As I said this was a critical period for the Jews. After 1917 through perhaps the 1927 Sapiro trial Jewish controlmen were busy putting out fires as fast as they could.  The London newspaper the Morning Post published The Cause of World Unrest that received very favorable reviews and attention and had its influence on Ford himself, so Ford is not an isolated case but part of a much greater reaction to Jewish crimes. Something had to be done and Henry Ford took up the challenge in 1920.

Henry Ford bought himself a little local Dearborn Michigan weekly newspaper called the Dearborn Independent and turned what was virtually a neighborhood paper into a national newspaper of tremendous influence, The International Dearborn Independent. As Ford was an actual reactionary socially in addition to being an industrial innovator of supreme imagination he turned his dissatisfaction to account and was a major influence on American mores. In that sense he was a real danger to the Jews who were trying to change American mores into Jewish mores.

In creating the International Dearborn Independent he was also fighting yellow journalism such as Hearst’s and Pulitzers newspapers in New York City and sensationalism generally. More of a magazine than a newspaper, from the copies I’ve seen, there was no sensationalism; the Reader’s Digest could have been patterned after it. It was just an attractively formatted Family Home Companion. Dull to most political readers I’m sure.

The paper reflected aspects of civilization as Ford would have liked them to have been. In fact, he reflected the America most people today find ideal.

Smarting under his treatment by the Jews such as Baruch and other bankers and alarmed by the post-war turmoil created by the Bolsheviks who most people considered to be Jews, Ford, by his own admission set about to solve the age old Jewish problem. No so-called anti-Semitism was involved, he was addressing the cause of world unrest. However, Ford was stepping into a musty controversy. Post-war Jewish activities had alarmed the more thoughtful part of thinking people. As there was little that could be done other than exposure this was Ford’s method and the method of a number of significant organizations and people. Ford was not alone in his exposure; Jewish damage controlmen were kept very buy worldwide. The Protocols were not a lone document; there were many.

Chief among these was a small volume called ‘The Cause Of World Unrest published by the London Morning Post by Anon. The author didn’t want to put his head on the block, Jewish vengeance is terrible, ask the Amalekites. The book was a success in England. In the US Charles Scribner decided to publish an edition as, indeed, the subject was an important political issue.

As Jews constituted somewhere near forty percent of the labor in New York City it would seem that someone or one’s reported to the American Jewish Committee Scribner’s intent. Louis Marshall, the President of the AJC sprang into action as he was prone to do. Marshall has two long volumes of his letters published in which he deals with all these events from the AJC and Jewish point of view. All his letters are not included, just a selection. These are usually long windy letters too. The guy must have spent all his days writing letters.

A word about Louis Marshall. Marshall was an NYC lawyer, a real Jewish gadfly. He was an inveterate letter writer and I mean it. He mostly penned thousand and many thousand word letters. It’s a miracle that any were read. Sometimes he followed the original multi-thousand word letter with another long winded epistle three days later probably before the recipient had had a chance to decipher the first letter. These letters were rambling affairs requiring great concentration to follow. As these letters often do not reflect well on Jewish activities one wonders about the letters that were excluded in which Marshall may have really let loose.

As the Cause of World Unrest exposed Jewish machinations that were not creditable Marshall and the AJC wanted them suppressed, that is censored. While the AJC loudly proclaims its dedication to freedom of speech it goes to great lengths to suppress what it doesn’t like. They wanted no unnecessary notice brought to their activities that were often indefensible. Thus Marshall wrote his letters to Charles Scribner commanding he not publish the Cause of World Unrest.

Scribner protested that it was relevant and important information founded in fact and ought to be disseminated. Scribner therefore went ahead and printed copies. Whatever threats were made, Scribner was visited by operatives of the anti-defamation league, who considered any comment about the Jews as defamation, who may have threatened to defame Scribner if he went ahead or threatened to interrupt his supplies or distribution driving him out of business, common Anti-Defamation League methods to persecute those who insisted on their Constitutional right to free speech, Scribner pulped the printed copies abandoning the project. Thus, as chief damage controlman Marshall achieved his end- suppressing free speech, while at the same time professing to be its champion. Institutionalized hypocrisy.

Then came Ford, who, also knowing of Scribner’s intent was disgusted by the book’s suppression.

Ford, while not immediately subject to suppression by reason of his great wealth and reputation, was adamant, well funded, and free to do as he pleased and he did it. The famous Independent articles later bound into the four volumes called The International Jew began to appear in his newspaper or magazine The International Dearborn Independent.

Having suppressed The Cause Of World Unrest this new, what they considered, threat threw the Jews into a frenzy of activity. Louis Marshall wrote many letters. The Anti-Defamation League got busy. Ford was immoveable, the articles kept coming out and they were learned articles, firmly rooted in fact. The first volume was an analysis of the Protocols, but the articles began to deal with various aspects of Jewish activities in the US and worst of all from the Jewish point of view they were accurate, incontestable, proof against any test bur irrational defamation, the resort was to pure defamation.

The Jewish activities analyzed by the Independent writer, William Cameron, were all directed at discrediting American mores, ways of doing things. This was an age old Jewish tactic. Conquer the people by destroying their mores and replacing them with Jewish mores. Thus in their contest with ancient Egypt the Jews attacked their sacred animals wantonly killing Egyptian protected species such as the Hippopotamus. Anti-Semitism wasn’t a term then but Egyptian animosity toward them for the destruction of the sacred animals was an indication of their stupidity because as always the Jews know best.

Nothing in the US is more defamatory than being called an anti-Semite. Ford became the definitive example of anti-Semite and the defamation followed him into the grave and still plagues Ford Motors.

Connected to the International Jew articles but separate from them, going on in the background, were the agricultural activities of a fellow by the name of Aaron Sapiro. Sapiro was busying himself organizing agricultural commodity co-ops. His activities would involve the famous Bernard Baruch, the prominent banker, Eugene Meyer Jr. and the head of the Lord and Taylor of Chicago advertising firm, Albert Lasker. Ford would begin investigating Sapiro two years after discontinuing the International Jew articles.

Now, this is interesting. Just as the Jews had the American Jewish Committee and the Anti-Defamation organizations, investigative and vigilante terrorist units, so Ford had his Service Department. Most people are probably no longer aware of the Daddy Warbucks character of the Little Orphan Annie comic strip. I have the feeling that cartoonist Harold Gray had Henry Ford in mind when he created Daddy Warbucks. Warbucks was an individualist with sparkling eyes and his own Service Department, submarine, spy system, the works.

Ford’s Service Dept. didn’t have a submarine but did have a force of investigators that he hired to scout out what the Jews may have been doing and what else they may have turned up I don’t know but Ford must have been one of the best informed men in the US. The Jewish organizations investigating and defaming Ford took his investigations of themselves as an unjustified affront, mocked him and defamed his investigators as a bunch of incompetent boobs. One of their tasks was to investigate Aaron Sapiro and his commodity co-ops.

The Jewish interest in agriculture might see slightly out of place as they were never associated with farming. Yet, all through this period they are active in agriculture, not as farmers, but as manipulators.

Behind these agricultural projects was a man never mentioned in the histories of Ford or the Sapiro case and apparently unnoticeable to any radar. I only came across him by a chance comment about him by Sapiro who was addressing a Detroit meeting just before the trial. Sapiro referred to a David Rubin as though he was the mastermind behind the whole agricultural business and he was. I searched Amazon for Rubin and surprisingly came up with a biography. A woman named Olivia Rosetti Agresti wrote a biography published in 1922, Rubin died in 1919, titled David Rubin; A Study In Practical Idealism. More of a hagiography than a biography it never-the-less details Rubin’s career. Rubin was a sort of latter day Jewish prophet, what we today would call a professional Jew. Not academically educated he was well read in Jewish sacred literature and was aware of and advanced the Jewish Revolution of 1913-1928. The US’ Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver explains the dates of the revolution in his book on Messianic Judaism.

Rubin’s messianism is demonstrated in this quote from Mrs. Agresti’s book, p. 75:

More than that…the young Yid will learn that the lifework of his people, of Yisroel, has just about got into shape to be begun, for we may safely say that, if we are to take the word of the Prophets seriously, our work in the past is but a prelude to what we have to accomplish. To prepare us for this great work we have been placed in a comatose condition for twenty centuries and we are just about beginning to awaken from our long sleep.

And when we open our eyes what do we behold? We behold the crown of royal equity, of righteousness, of justice, of “rachmonus”, of the Spirit, ruling the nations, the people and the individuals! and the regal quality off his rule is infinitely more potent than all the qualities inherent in kings or presidents; and after beholding this let any one then say that the Jew has no country. Can a country be shown, high in the qualities named, that was not shaped through the influences in the life of Israel? Do not let the young people get fooled by the seeming level-headed, practical man; the man that boasts of his levelness. Such men are more often practical humbugs….Let there be but one Jew with the proper spirit; let him go forth to do the work which it is Israel’s mission to do, and the work will be begun.

One sees then that the prophetic spirit is on Rubin and he has embraced it. He is the prophet. And he passed the spirit on to his acolyte, Aaron Sapiro. It is the Jew’s mission to lead the nations to righteousness and one might add, by any means necessary.

Rubin, born in 1849, came to the US as a young man growing up in New York then gravitating to the city of Sacramento on the West Coast. Arriving with little means he and his half-brother Harris Weinstock opened a store in Sacramento and prospered. Accumulating money rather quickly, given Rubin’s self-proclaimed righteousness and integrity, Rubin became interested in agriculture through the Jewish fruit growers of Sacramento. Rubin was involved in the Jewish Colony Association so he apparently brought a lot of landsmen West. Oranges and such being overplanted and supply far exceeding demand, Rubin took a hand in organizing co-operatives to put some order in the chaos, especially as he had gone from merchant to grower. According to Sapiro the Rubin plan was the one he based his plan on. The information is sketchy and hard to follow but Rubin left Sacramento in 1895 to find someone to sponsor his agricultural fantasia. He found that someone in the king of Italy. He returned briefly to Sacramento in 1906 at which time he may have met Sapiro and indoctrinated him. Sapiro takes credit for organizing the orange growers co-ops but at about the same time the ad man from Chicago Albert Lasker takes credit for creating the Sun Kist label and organizing the growers under that umbrella. And somewhere along the line Bernard Baruch became involved in these agricultural schemes through his interest in commodities. The paths began to cross between the Jewish schemers and Henry Ford who, have been raised on a farm, was developing a scheme to benefit farmers beginning with his tractor that was developed shortly after the Model T. Ford and his idol Edison worked out a plan together that they presented to Baruch for his evaluation. Baruch, of course, involved with the Jewish plan rejected it outright. Ford and Thomas Edison were stung by the rejection. Why it should have been taken to Baruch for evaluation unless he was known to be involved in agricultural efforts isn’t clear to me.

Sapiro began forming these co-ops in the teens and was successful in organizing them making for himself enormous sums of money. In his best year he pocketed eighty thousand dollars, in today’s dollars and buying power that is millions. And that was for himself. Baruch, Meyer and Lasker were surely being paid for their contributions so the farmers and growers were being mulcted even before the co-ops were functioning.

There is a distorted episode in this Jewish-Ford war than the Sapiro episode.

Sapiro based his plan on the prophet Lubin’s teachings. He then formed numerous commodities into co-ops moving from West to East as he exhausted areas. About the time Ford caught up with him he was involved in the Kentucky tobacco growers along with Bernard Baruch. The agricultural plan was quite simple. In order, theoretically, to get the best price for the growers they would consign their crops to the co-ops which would then warehouse the crops, that is take them into their possession, make the growers a small down payment while distributing payments to the growers as the crops were sold. Thus, hopefully the crops were withheld in times of low prices and released in times of high prices. All very well in theory.

However the administrators of the co-ops had to be paid and as in all such cases the administrators think themselves more important than the growers who become in their minds mere employees. They also have the means of disciplining the growers as they have possession of the crops. Thus the co-op becomes a collective. The administrators invariably value their services as more important to those of the growers as employees. The co-ops as devised by Sapiro were mere rackets and Sapiro was very well paid for setting them up.

Ford, at one time, briefly, a farmer had along with Thomas Edison devised his own plan, one in which the farmers retained their independence. Edison, in turn, had even submitted his plan for criticism to Bernard Baruch. As Baruch was involved with the Lubin-Sapiro plan he coldly dismissed the Ford-Edison plan as impractical which in my estimation it was.

Whether Baruch’s decision affected Ford’s articles investigating Sapiro is not known, nevertheless his detectives began examining Sapiro’s activities which in turn infuriated Sapiro who filed a legal suit against Ford for defamation. As Sapiro’s activities were public the suit turned into a defamation action against the whole Jewish people. Thus Sapiro brought the whole of Judaism into his complaint. The end result of this would have been the beginning of a law making it a crime to criticize Jews in any way giving them complete immunity as they pursued their goals while establishing Judaism as the State’s protected religion.

In any event Sapiro was caught tampering with the jury and the trial was declared a mistrial. Contrary to belief Ford did not lose the trial. Had the parties wished the trial would have been rescheduled. It is unlikely that Sapiro could have borne the expense of a new trial so Ford would have won by default.

However, as Ford was involved in a model change, the Model T had outlived its life span and Ford had shut down his entire operation for over a year for retooling, he could ill spare the time for a new trial, so even though no new trial was scheduled he inexplicably chose to settle.

The whole of the Jewish establishment had been involved in the trial, the AJC headed by the gadfly Louis Marshall, the lawyer Samuel Untermyer, the Hollywood Studios and the united Jewish people, so Sapiro had become such a cipher that Louis Marshall and the Jewish hierarchy took charge. In addition to money damages Marshall demanded that Ford apologize, not to Sapiro, but to the whole body of Jews, presumably in the world. This was close to the blood libel in significance.

The articles in the Dearborn Independent had apparently been so effective in the book form throughout the world that the world’s unrest had redounded or was redounding on the Jews so that as part of the settlement Ford was required to renounce the International Jew worldwide proving, I suppose, that the concept international Jews was a fact and there was no international Jewish conspiracy.

The problem was that Ford had never copyrighted the articles and anyone could us them at their discretion, Ford received no royalties. In fact Ford had no legal control on their dissemination.

In the event Sapiro had been thoroughly discredited, apology or no apology, and was never able to recover. His day in the sun was finished. Louis Marshall, himself, had written Ford’s apology and the fulsome generosity to the Jews was palpable. He had the two page document bound in boards and sent a copy to every library in the US of A. One can only conclude that Ford had successfully upset Jewish plans or, at least, put them on the defensive during the twenties. The apology however did not end the affair in Jewish minds; remember the Amalekites. It didn’t end until the forties when Ford was completely demoralized and Ford Motors was in tatters. The Amalekites as you may know refused Moses and the Hebrews passage through their country which was a mortal offense to the Jews. Decades after the fact when they were stronger they organized an army, marched back to the Amalekites and exterminated them man, woman and child. It was the will of the Lord. As with the Amalekites, so with Ford.

Had Woodrow Wilson remained healthy he would have sought a third term. Bursting from the energy center of a successful Bolshevik Revolution in Russia the Jews would have remained powerful thus controlling the enormous empire of Russia as well as the huge economic engine of the US. As incredible as it may seem they would have been the rulers of the Eurocentric world and the impossible dream would have been a reality. How long it would have endured is another question.

With Wilson out of the running, assuming he could have obtained a third term, the rump of the post-Civil War GOP won the election in 1920 creating the economic power house of the 1920s. With the Republicans back in power there was no place for the Jews in Washington.

-III-

If you remember the myth of Cadmus in Boeotia, who created a civil war the same can be said about the Jews and the Europeans beginning in 1914. There was no compelling reason for WWI. Austria and Serbia was an internal situation used by some anarchist shooting an Austrian prince. Why Russia mobilized against Austria over some slipshod notion of Pan-Slavism isn’t clear. Once Russia mobilized against Austria Germany felt compelled to mobilize against Russia in support of German ruled Austria. England and France had no dog in the fight but attacked Germany. Once a war begins there are unintended consequences, however the intended consequence was happening per Cadmus’ plan; the Europeans were in a civil war and slaughtering each other in droves.

In order to stop the slaughter the Germans attempted a peace initiative in 1916. In the same year the US industrialist, Henry Ford, rented the ship the Oscar II, dubbed the peace ship, sailing to Europe in the hopes of stopping the war by Christmas. Neither Ford nor the Germans were successful as the British and French, who had already lost the cream of their manhood, chose to continue the incredible slaughter, a mass suicide of Lemmings. While the European nations were slaughtering their own, what was the semi-autonomous Jewish nation doing?

The first Russian Revolution driven by the Jews was unsuccessful. But, if at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again. The Jewish hatred of Russia and the Czar was increased by the 1905 failure.

So long as the Czar and Russia were allies of France and England the Jews refused to aid them. They backed Germany that was at war with Russia. The February Revolution of 1917 led by the Jews and headed by the Jew Kerensky, kept Russia in the war. But, the October Bolshevik Revolution eclipsing the one of February took Russia out of the war removing them from the Allies and leaving the Germans in control of South Russia.

The Zionists, always trying to make the best of any disaster, negotiated with the British to give them Palestine as a Jewish State. They succeeded and the British published the Balfour Declaration empowering and embolding them shortly after the Red October Revolution. At that time the Jews threw whatever support they had behind the Allies. Having removed the Czar they now aimed to remove the Kaiser.   Absolute rulers had to be removed; democracies were easier to dominate and manage than monarchies.

The US had entered the war after the February Revolution and would now provide France and England with victory. The US entry into the war would change the US overnight. It is thought that Mussolini invented Fascism but the US beat him to it in 1917-18. The US set the organizational method for Fascism, National Socialism and Communism, and that was done by a Democratic president. All three systems studied the astonishing US model and adapted their systems to it.

One almost thinks that the Euroamerican mentality was reordered at that time. It would appear that the US led the way. It was also true that Fascism, National Socialism and Communism are different variations of Judaism and at this point in history amidst the Jewish Revolution engulfing the US, Europe and Russia it is probably no coincidence. Both the US and Russia at that time became Jewish dominated States while all the various national Communist parties were predominantly Jewish.

It was at this time then that Wilson made the arch Jew, Bernard Baruch the Czar of the War Industries Board and actually a co-president with himself. To call Bernard Baruch a Czar is not exaggeration, he had true autocratic powers granted by Wilson and he wielded them. The WIB under Baruch made the US vertically integrated. All individuality disappeared, subsumed under his unlimited power.

You may smile at what you might consider an extreme exaggeration but read. Baruch was in charge of the whole industrial life of the nation. He could order who made what and when and how. Under the emergency powers of the war he was in charge of all commodities. Using the excuse of the war he did form a deal with the shoe manufacturers under the impress of conserving leather to reduce all shoe styles to three.

His powers existed from March to the armistice in November of 1918. He was in the process of limiting women’s apparel to six different dress styles. And men’s clothing also. This would have realized a Socialist concept of equality. Steel corset stays had been dis-continued to conserve the medal. This seemingly reasonable thing was to change sexual mores, following Freud.

Now, Baruch worked closely with George Creel who ran the CPI, Committee for Public Information. Creel was thoroughly regimenting the American mind. It was the most extraordinarily conceived effort at mind control ever made by any State and it was successful. If you will examine the period you will readily see why the Fascists, National Socialists and Communists were aghast in admiration. Fortunately for the US the war was ended before Baruch could complete his plans although the lessons learned from his actions and those of Creel would influence the future and the US never has recovered the freedom of the Gilded Age. Those freedoms were quickly labeled laissez-faire and laissez-faire was condemned as something immoral.

Baruch’s reign as Czar began in March of 1918 and mercifully ended in November of the same year. But, in those few months he changed the direction of US society lasting to this day with no real letup in sight. He was severely criticized post-war. Neither he nor Creel were allowed the same powers during WWII, kept at a distance.

On p. 27 of American Industry In The War Baruch himself says this:

The Board has been criticized as an institution with tremendous power and no responsibilities; that democracy created a tyrant with power to shatter ordinary rules of business practice even to the extent of undoing contract obligations. A fuller study of what was done will modify this conception. That the powers of the Board were of a quality easily susceptible to abuse and of a kind that should be entrusted only to men of extraordinary integrity and talent cannot be denied.

While not actually denying the charges, only modifying them, Czar Bernard then portrays himself as a man of extraordinary integrity and talent who could be trusted. However as the Jews denied these qualities to Czar Nicholas, while his loyal subjects accorded such attributes to him, it is much more likely that Baruch’s detractor’s were right. Certainly Henry Ford and the Dodge brothers might disagree with Baruch’s opinion of himself. On p. 406 Baruch goes a little further:

During the World War, government had the power to commandeer factories and to operate them under bureaucratic direction. I do not recall a single important industrial enterprise that was thus taken over. This does not mean that the use of the power was never advocated. On the contrary, it was seriously urged in respect of a great industrial plant which was thought by some not to be giving full cooperation to the government. The proposal was split on the rock of this argument:

“Who will run it? Do you know another manufacturer fit to take over its administration? Would you replace a proved expert manager by a problematical mediocrity? After you had taken it over and installed your government employee as manager what greater control would you have then than now? NOW you can choke it to death, deprive it of transportation, fuel, and power, divert its business, strengthen its rivals. Could any disciplinary means be more effective? If you take it over, you can give orders to an employee backed by threat of dismissal and with far less effect than you give them now. Let the management run the plant and you run the management.

It is quite clear who this manufacturer was, it was Henry Ford he was talking about. Be clear, Baruch was violating every tenet Americans believed of themselves. Baruch was putting an end to the individualist mindset and replacing it with a Jewish collectivist mindset. Note the controls that Baruch already had and was using. These means were the same that the Order of B’nai B’rith was employing through its Anti-Defamation League. This was clear to any right thinking person. Under this phony emergency of war Americans were obedient in a way they would never have been otherwise. In Freudian terms the whole corpus of the US was being hypnotized through a traumatic mind set to accept direction from Baruch the Magician, i.e. the hypnotist. This acceptance of his sole direction, a dictatorship, an authoritarian mode, would have post-war post-hypnotic consequences. Of course not all the people would accept the hypnotic suggestion and Henry Ford was one of them along with the Dodge brothers of Dodge Motors. Now, both the Dodges and Henry Ford strenuously objected to Baruch’s methods, and that to the point where members of the WIB were advocating taking Ford Motors away from Ford. Ford’s so-called unexplainable anti-Semitism is becoming more explainable.

Baruch trembled at the thought because there was no one else in the world capable of coming in cold to run the great River Rouge plant; the most vertically integrated plant in the world. Ford owned forests, iron mines, the whole works including a glass factory to mass produce his windows. Before Ford it was impossible to mass produce the millions and millions of glass panes that he needed nearly on a daily basis.

Baruch’ plan wasn’t as good as he thought even though he believed himself that man of destiny of extraordinary integrity and talent.

Here’s an insight from James Grant’s Bernard Baruch: The Adventures Of A Wall Street Legend pp. 178-80:

Just as Baruch reached his financial maturity in the early Bull market, so he hit his political stride in the First World War. In both cases his timing was impeccable. In the first instance he moved stocks in a rising market. In the second he was present at the creation of the twentieth-century American state.

Having made a fortune in Wall Street under a system of low taxes and limited government, Baruch entered public life to help install a regime of relatively high taxes and intrusive government. When he arrived in Washington the public debt was less than $3 billion, personal income taxes were trifling, and national economic planning was alien to the American experience. On his departure in 1919, the public debt totaled $25 billion, tax rates in the top bracket had climbed more than ten fold to 73%, and federal control of economic life was firmly established.

War is a dragooning proposition, and in America, as in other belligerent powers, the divergence between the professed liberal aims of the fight and its wartime conduct was ironically wide. In the name of liberty, the United States government conscripted troops, censured the mails, took over the railroads and telegraph lines and fixed the price of wheat.

Bitter arguments ensued in which the Dodge brothers made ready reference to his ethnicity. It wouldn’t have taken a genius to recognize the Jewishness of Baruch’s plans. According to Baruch Ford made no ethnic references but denounced the plan as totally unnecessary, which it certainly was.

As I say, Baruch’s job lasted only a few months and so he was talented enough to realize Ford’s great River Rouge plant would quickly go to pieces under a mediocrity, he had to make the best of an undesirable situation.

However as an extraordinary and talented person in the Jewish tradition he took the opposition as an insult and never forgave it with consequences, although he boasted that he never bore grudges. So he wasn’t quite the man to wield such total power. Circumstances returned him to ordinary citizenship but with a huge reputation although he had incurred the distrust of others.

After the war came the realization that the Jews were up to something and a worldwide reaction, especially to the takeover of Russia that was rightly seen as a Jewish operation, was begun. And they were, and it was, but the Jews were compelled to deny it and go to some lengths to defuse that reaction. The post-war reaction was a critical point in the Jewish program.

In point of fact after the October Revolution Jews were in control of the Russian State. In the US they poised to seize the government and a state of incipient revolution existed through 1920-21 with many incendiary acts. Civil war raged in Germany and Central Europe with the threat of Jewish takeovers. In France and England the Jews through the Rothschilds influenced those governments. Had the Jews succeeded in Russia and the US the two mega-States bookending Europe would have been unassailable and the whole of Europe would have had to capitulate. The Jewish revolution was within a hair’s breadth of succeeding.

The US plan went wrong when Wilson had an incapacitating stroke allowing the rump of the post-Civil War Gilded Age GOP regime to retake office for twelve years. The German troops returned from the Western Front, defeated the Jews in Germany preventing a complete takeover while the rest of Central Europe kept the Jewish Communists at bay, sometimes at great cost.

Jewish damage controlmen went into operation gearing up the propaganda machine, calling all and sundry anti-Semites and denying all charges. And they succeeded in defaming any objectors. And their activities were obvious to an alarmed Europe and US.

At this time in the US the President of the American Jewish Committee, founded in 1906, Louis Marshall came into prominence backing up Baruch and others, especially the chief terrorist arm the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith.

While Henry Ford formed the front line of action taking the brunt of abuse the country itself rose up to demand compliance to 110% Americanism, now that the war was over and dissenting voice were allowed to be heard again. The days of the Committee of Public Information were over. These people alarmed by what they felt was less than enthusiasm for war aims demanded that the immigrants proclaim not one hundred percent Americanism but one hundred ten percent. One may consider them counter-revolutionaries denouncing Communist influence.

One must remember that the Communists appeared like a bolt from the blue forcing their vision on the whole of society, and this violently. When Wilson’s Attorney General, A. Mitchell Palmer rounded up batches of revolutionary Communists imprisoning some and sending some back to Russia, including Leon Trotsky, the high percentage of Jews was evident. The rising Jewish influence in Wilson’s government, his main support, was noticed. Taken by surprise, if that seems possible, non-Jews didn’t know what to do about it except for Henry Ford.

Ford set about to expose Jewish machinations. He had the ways and means and the determination. It was a two decades battle that he ultimately lost. Some, many, considered it incomprehensible that Ford became what Jewish propaganda defined as the arch-anti-Semite, the US Great Satan of the inter-war period.

That seems odd, not so much that the general population found it incomprehensible but all so-called scholars from then to the present day found and find his activities inexplicable. Of course, they do have to keep their jobs and any opinion the Jews find offensive will put the offender on the street. This is the most blatant censorship but the Pavlovian conditioning to fear being called an anti-Semite is so powerful as to be almost a law. What could be more obvious? The War Industries Board and Bernard Baruch. Ford had his own ideas, different from those of Baruch. As noted above Baruch found Ford a real thorn in his side and would have liked to have nationalized Ford Motors but to do so would have meant botching the country’s manufacturing abilities.

Ford was the state of the art in industrial production. His centrality to the period has faded away in time now but as the chief developer of mass production Ford was the most famous person in the US through the teens, twenties and thirties. Repeatedly he had done the seemingly impossible, revolutionizing production from top to bottom. When it comes to the WIB Ford was the industrialist while Baruch was more a Wall Street manipulator and speculator. Not to say he wasn’t a good organizer and intelligent man but the gloss of the speculator was all over him.

As a Jew it was psychologically impossible for him to not organize according to Jewish methods and those favor the Jews. As part of his requirements he wanted every manufacturer in the country to provide their fiscal data and operating and manufacturing methods. Ford quickly divined that all that information in the hands of the Jews would be used to manipulate American business in their favor. He objected vociferously causing Baruch to wish he could nationalize Ford. Between the Dodge brothers and Ford Baruch felt greatly insulted, injured and although he claimed to never hold a grudge he was a very vengeful man. And he didn’t necessarily stop at murder.

In 1920 both the Dodge brothers died under mysterious circumstances. Baruch himself in his auto-biography tells the story of the death of John Dodge. In 1920 after the beginning of Prohibition Baruch ‘accidentally’ met John Dodge in the lobby of a New York City hotel. John Dodge apologized for the harsh negotiations during war time and invited Baruch up for some bootleg liquor. Baruch self-righteously declined while noting the Dodge died from cheap bootleg liquor that night. And then Horace Dodge died. And then an attempt was made on Henry Ford’s life when he was forced off the road at night.

He survived but the Jewish defamation and propaganda squad went to work suggesting Ford staged the accident himself as a publicity stunt. You may be sure that the most famous man in America didn’t need publicity stunts. So, Ford had plenty of good reasons to denounce the Jews unrelated to any irrational anti-Semitism. Nevertheless his reaction touched off a full fledged Jewish-Ford war that would last for more than two decades ending in the total defeat of Ford. One can sense Baruch’s hand behind the scenes all the way.

According to Lion Feuchtwanger Jud Suss’ biographer cum novelist, Suss, who was advisor to Duke Karl Alexander of the German Duchy of Wurttemberg, next to Bavarian Germany flourished in the 1730s and 40s. In his story Feuchtwanger details how Suss swindled and corrupted Duke Karl, bedded his wife and turned her against him, raised money by taxing such necessities as the right to use public roads thereby virtually bankrupting the whole populace much as Netanyahu’s Jewish tax farmers in Spain and generally disrupting the dukedom. In other words, Suss supplanted the Duke. This was done through chutzpah and effrontery. A regular textbook for the Jews and one which seems to have been followed.

The Rothschilds coming along in the footsteps of Suss through chutzpah and luck perfected the system and essentially named the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. While the Europeans were inventing the scientific modern world the Jews were fleecing the Europeans. Thus, out of the disappointments of the nineteenth century that weakened their religious mission and the European rise of Science in the nineteenth century the Jews lost their belief in the supernatural becoming for all intents and purposes the first atheist nation.

The nineteenth century found them floundering around trying to find the way. Numerous religious avenues were explored fracturing the Jews into various religious sects much like Protestantism. Suss’ directive to follow the money led them to seek control of European currency and later in the century US currency which they successfully did. The Euroamerican banking systems were effectively in their near absolute control by 1913.

The Talmud not being a particularly religious work, the Bible, Old Testament, was very secondary to the Talmud and not very assiduously read. Judaism then was embedded in the Talmud. This is what Barbara Spectre of Paideia refers to as ‘Jewish knowledge’ which she places on an equal plane with European knowledge, that is, Science. That is one particularly hard sell.

Thus, in the nineteenth century Judaism was entirely eclipsed by European Science. The old debates between Judaism and Christianity were kaput, irrelevant. Unable to come up with something that could equal or surpass Science the only recourse the Jews had was to inject Talmudist magic into European Science, that is, corrupt it. This is Spectre’s goal. By the turn of the twentieth century they had found the formula.

The change of centuries was a very important period for the Jews. On the religious front the stage was being set to reunite them into one ideology. That ideology was to become Zionism. And behind this whole schemata was the rise of a new arena and power. The United States of America. While the rise of the US happened very, very fast from a group of wild, untutored English colonies whose first president was inaugurated in 1793, that is, the beginning of the nineteenth century, and whose domain at the time barely extended beyond the first range of mountains some hundreds of miles even from the Mississippi and yet a mere hundred years later extended from the Atlantic Coast to the Pacific Ocean and through the choice latitudes of the continent. Further it was a country of unexampled prosperity with no settled social mores, ripe for the picking.

It was as though the heavens had opened up and fulfilled Jewish hopes and desires. As the nineteenth century had begun Napoleon had conquered all Europe save Russia with which he had an accommodation. Napoleon, in an attempt in which he would later would be joined by Henry Ford and many others trying to find a solution to the Jewish problem, emancipated the European Jews. As their complaint was that they were discriminated against, and with good reason, Napoleon attempted to remove the cause of that discrimination. In his fatuousness, he misunderstood the Jewish attitude. He thought that since the gates were open to join the main body, European civilization, that the Jews would drop their nationalism, being supposedly a religion, and rush into a melding with the European populations. Little did he realize that the Jews wished to subordinate the European population not to be absorbed into it.

Nevertheless, the cat was out of the bag and couldn’t be put back in. The Jews were then, if not full citizens, still citizens of their respective host countries with the rights pertaining thereto.

Following Jud Suss and his currency ideas were the Rothschilds. Nathan, the son who went to England, was the greatest success. Originally he went to England to enter the textile trade in Manchester in which he was a failure. Not competent in commerce he went into the banking business in which the currency controlled commerce and was a roaring success. He went into banking at the propitious moment if not originating at least perfecting the role of exploiting the entire European population by loaning to governments and managing their currencies. Thus the Rothschilds perfected the Jud Suss idea becoming more important and richer than any European.

The US was a fertile field in which the Jews finally succeeded in taking over the US currency in 1913 with the establishment of the Federal Reserve. The Federal reserve was established as a private corporation of which the owners were nine international Jewish banking firms joined by the Rockefeller interests as the tenth to make a minyan. Truly the Fed was a money machine as the Jews and Rockefellers collected annual interest on every US dollar they issued. Plus, the Fed was an independent entity not being under the control of either the President or Congress. It was responsible to no one.

Now, all this occurred just as Science was creating the greatest technological revolution the world would ever see. Technology is the practical arm of Science. Science for instance discovers and develops the understanding of electricity while technology exploits electricity in the form of dynamos, light bulbs and what have you. Fabulous fortunes were thus made. But, that’s not the best part. The resultant businesses were large affairs that couldn’t be financed by an individual thus stock shares were invented to raise money. Very good, now to make the shares liquid a stock market was required. Et voila! Another money machine to be exploited.

So, shortly after the turn of the twentieth century the stage was set for the takeover of the world. All the money in the world was in control of a few hands. The Money Trust.

Lacking any supernatural consciousness, God had effectively been expelled from Jewish concerns, the Jews only claim was the national ego and its desire for world dominion. While the trust in the supernatural was expelled Science was still a threat to Jewish dominance. A way had to be found to convert Science, i.e. European Knowledge, to Jewish Knowledge per Barbara Spectre and then eliminate European Knowledge leaving only Jewish Knowledge with a slight scientific infusion.

Once again, the Jewish plan first conceived by Joseph Oppenheimer and brought to perfection by the Rothschilds was based on a Jewish-Christian confrontation in which the Jews as the elder branch thought they had the upper hand. They were blind sided by the rise of Science that changed the paradigm and gave Europeans absolute supremacy. Bear in mind that Science moved from West to East slowly so that even by 1900 Poland, Russia and the whole of Eastern Europe was barely affected. While Western Jews were splintered into sects the East was still Rabbinic and Orthodox including the Hasidim. All three divisions were medieval in outlook. Hence Zionism took root there quickly and was then exported to the US in the mass migration of 1900-14.

Now, the Jews’ only choice was to submit to Science and inject it with magical elements. Freud said that the religious consciousness took three major blows to its confidence, the heliocentric astronomy, Darwinian evolution, and, modestly, his own psycho-analytic psychology. The evolutionary theory was attacked by Henri Bergson who injected it with creation magic that successfully brought evolution within the scope of religious or Talmudic discussion

Franz Boas did the same with Anthropology even more successfully, removing almost all scientific inquiry turning the subject from an unpalatable scientific discussion into a form of religious humanism. Astronomy was tackled by a nincompoop named Albert Einstein who created astronomical phenomena out of whole cloth with the fabric of time and space in fact.

The main hammer however was the putative psychologist Sigmund Freud. Freud’s assault was on the mores of the Europeans and Americans, especially sexual mores, in which he was eminently successful. He was actually able to remold the sexual mores of Europeans and, of course, their offshoot in the United States of America.

While, at least until fairly recently, Freud was able to capture the whole psychological discipline and the become the putative ‘father’ of psychology, he was nothing of the sort. Psychology was a purely European science until he captured it. This was done by the Jewish propaganda machine.

After 1897 and the First Zionist Congress the spirit of the Jewish people passed from their god into the souls of Jews. They now learned or thought they had that their redemption would not come from the divine but the people, that is themselves. There was no more waiting for the Messiah; they were their own messiah.

The decried Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion were a result of the 1897 Zionist conference in Vienna. Although as yet the exact provenance of the Protocols can’t be determined; certain well founded conjectures can be made. I, myself, would look to the lodge of the Order of B’nai B’rith of Vienna. If anybody had been plotting this, it was plotted there. Also, since 1895 Sigmund Freud had been a prominent member.

Theodore Herzl who was the originator of Zionism was a Viennese. Vienna at this time had replaced Frankfort-on-the-Main as the guiding center of European Judaism. I have not seen it reported that Herzl was a member of the International Order of B’nai B’rith, but he must certainly have been acquainted with and associated with various members. He was a prominent journalist. The Viennese chapter was a revolutionary chapter. In 1895 a significant figure joined the chapter and that significant figure was Sigmund Freud. Freud was imbued with a deep hatred of Europe and its people and things European. He was bloody minded.

As a devout Jew he, not unlike his twenty-first century successor, Barbara Spectre, worked to see Jewish mores and morality replace those of Europe and Europeans. He longed for the physical destruction of Europe and Europeans. In 1895 his career as a psychologist was in its infancy. Yet, he was a protégé of Joseph Breuer and he had studied for a brief but important time with the great Parisian Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot and had rubbed shoulders with Charcot’s acolyte, the near great Pierre Janet, from whom he appropriated many of his ideas. He had also studied with the great French hypnotist Auguste Liebeault and his Jewish acolyte Hippolyte Bernstein. I might also mention Freud appropriated whole passages from Gustave Lebon’s The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind which he uncharacteristically credited. Thus he was well founded in contemporary psychological and hypnotic ideas. And it should not be forgotten that he was a cocaine addict although this life long habit is suppressed.

One can only speculate that he, being especially enthusiastic about the drug, turned on the members of B’nai B’rith along with his friends and acquaintances. Thus, I suspect, if Zionism originated with Herzl in association with B’nai B’rith it was done in a cocaine fog.   I also suspect, might even maintain, that the Protocols were composed in the lodge of B’nai B’rith, hence definitely are of Jewish provenance. At any rate Freud developed his ideas, possibly discussing and refining them at the weekly meetings in the Lodge that he attended religiously until the Nazis marched into Vienna causing him to remove. Thus one might say Freud functioned as a secular Messiah of the Jews replacing Sabbatai Zevi while planning the destruction of Europe and Europeans in the spirit of 1666.

This hatred would find expression in the Second Thirty Years’ War of 1914-45 during which the devastation was worse than that of the First Thirty Years’ War. While the First was between Catholics and Protestants, the Second was between Jews and Aryans.

You may say such a thing was impossible but the template for the method was recorded in Greek Mythology as the invasion of the Semite Cadmus into Aryan Greek Boeotia, just North of Athens.

According to the story Cadmus sowed discord between the native Boeotians who then engaged in a civil war destroying each other as Cadmus ‘ immigrants didn’t have the strength or numbers to take them on. Then, when the Boeotians had exhausted themselves Cadmus negotiated a peace between while stablishing himself (that is his people) as supreme. This was followed by the two Theban wars and the Trojan War reclaiming Europe for Europeans.

Of course this is expressed in mythological poetic language in the Greek myths. As the Jews in Europe were in the same situation as Cadmus in Boeotia they employed the same method, as they are now in the US and Europe. In the first half of the war they were successful in gaining supremacy in Russia and maintaining supremacy on the continent until the rise of Hitler in Germany who then destroyed their success in Germany but necessitating the second half of the war in which Jewish hopes were temporarily shattered by the attempted genocide. Unlike the Peace Conference of WWI, WWII, the Thirty years’ War ended with the US and Europe vs. the Soviet Union as two armed camps.

Thus, when WWI ended the Jews via Communism were supreme across Europe although not yet in undisguised dominance. Their success in WWI was achieved through their manipulation of the US which was the weight that tipped the balance. Thus, the Kaiser, the Czar and the Austrian Emperor were eliminated as entities. Democracy as a political tool then opened the field to Jewish pre-eminence.

The opposition of Hitler and the NSDAP necessitated another war. The success in WWII would depend on US involvement as had WWI. WWI had altered circumstances. Apparently unbeknownst to Europeans there were now two superpowers of which a Europe divided into smaller powers was, as it were, superannuated. The Soviet Union and the USA were calling all the shots. The European situation was truly pathetic.

The Mysteries of the Second Thirty Year’s War

by

R.E. Prindle

 

Just as the Land of Faerie was antiquated by Science so was the concept of the imaginary god or gods and goddesses and one imagines also the angels and all other intermediaries between heaven and earth. Just as the Faerie was of the earth so the gods were imagined as ‘spiritual’ or of the heavens. As the Enlightenment came into existence the field of usable imaginable beings was reduced to one in two versions, the god of the Jews and the god of the Christians. We are, in this part, concerned with the Jewish reaction to Science which reduced them to ordinary mortals.

The Jews were an intrusion into Europe, an alien element like some great stone or monument, some terminal errant boulder that seemed to have no place in the environment. A continual irritant like a stone in your shoe.

Perhaps the Jews can be explained by their origin. They boast of a mere 4000 year existence and in their sacred writings even record, if not the year, the period of their birth. The celestial Zodiac is today but poorly understood. The recent announcement of the coming of the
Age of Aquarius was taken as some kind of joke but it was no joke when the Age changed four thousand years ago, or even two thousand.

The Zodiac is, in fact a time keeping artefact. It keeps time for the Great Year. The Great Year is some twenty-five thousand odd years long and is divided into twelve periods of the Zodiac. It is created by the anomaly of the Plane of the Ecliptic, or, in other words the twenty-three and a half degree declination of the Earth’s axis. This wobble is what creates the two tropics, Cancer and Capricorn. A corresponding effect occurs in the Great Year. At the present the North Pole points to Polaris and the year is in the Tropic of Cancer, twelve thousand years from now the North Pole will point to Vega and at that time we will be in a new ice age and the Tropic of Capricorn. We are currently in the Inter-Ice Age Summer, hence global warming. In fact, the Earth has been under going a climatic warming for about twelve thousand years.

The last Ice Age ended with a bang at the cusp of the Age of Virgo and Leo. About the year 4000 the Age changed from the Age of Taurus to the Age of Aries, the planet was well into the Spring of the Great Year. Now, each Age in the mind of mankind has its religious avatars. The god of Taurus was Saturn while the God of Aries in Greek terms was Zeus, he succeeded Cronus the Greek Saturn. Zeus was to be succeeded by Dionysus but the collision with the Jews occurred about the dawning of the Age of Pisces and the Jewish prophet Jesus of Nazareth replaced Dionysus as Jesus the Christ, or awaited one. When Jesus told Ahasereus, the man who mocked him, that he would have to wander until Jesus returned he was actually telling in Astrological terms that he would be walking for twenty-five thousand years when Pisces returned again.

At the transition to Aries the people who became the Jews were Semites living in Mesopotamia according to their sacred literature. They record the name of their founder who seceded from the main Semitic body as Terah. Seventy-five years from the founding their chief appears to have been Abram. According to the texts he was a great astrologer or astronomer, far surpassing those of the majority in his knowledge, in fact, the greatest astrologer of them all. The Einstein of his day.

As the Age shifted from Taurus to Aries the old god was displaced by the new avatar. In the Greek term he was banished to Tartarus. That place was probably at the opposite Age of the Zodiac. It seems that Terah took a contrarian position and said that the old god Saturn didn’t depart but was Eternal. Thus the Jewish stone in the shoe was created. This position resulted seventy-five years of contention later in the expulsion of the Jews, then known as Hebrews, from Mesopotamia. The first of many expulsions from many places and always with the same result.

As an example of what might be termed Jewish crankiness, apart from claiming Saturn was eternal was their claim that Earth had been created a mere seventeen hundred years previously and that would buttress their claim that Saturn was eternal being the first and only god. Of course, the Mesopotamians believed that the earth was very old and had records, of a sort, for a hundred thousand years or more.

The Mesopotamian mind must have been boggled and exasperated by such ignorant obstinance. While the Jews or Hebrews would thus be known as the archetypal cranks they nevertheless outlasted all of the ancient civilizations into the Age of Pisces, or the current Age, having Jesus the Christ as the religious archetype not Saturn. Indeed, the Jews denied the obvious, that they still worshipped Saturn. However the Hellenistic and Roman period creating universal States obliterated all the ancient cultures of the Middle East and the astrological argument while incorporating the Greeks and all their legends and myths, found the Jews, now known as Jews, as the stone in their shoe along with their absurd notions.

These notions were preserved in the Piscean Age, having left the Arien Age, through the adoption of the Jewish prophet Jesus of Nazareth as the avatar of the Piscean Age. The silly Jewish notions, such as the age of the Earth became dogma in the Christian era thus entering Europe and perverting the Aryan mind. Even today there are millions who believe the Earth was created six thousand years ago despite irrefutable scientific evidence to the contrary.

The character of the Jews has been much misrepresented. While the invasion of the Huns was clearly a subjection of the Europeans, the invasion of Europe by the Jews was intended no less a subjection of Europe but lacking a military force it had to be done by asymmetric warfare or any means necessary. This has been done by the perversion of the European, or Aryan, mind through the propagandistic Judeo-Christian religion codified in the Jewish bible that was adopted in Western Europe as the gospel of truth.

A dangerous split occurred when the Jew Paul adapted the Jewish Jesus cult into a universal one. The reactionary Jews refused to accept the Piscean avatar. Thus the Christians and Jews became antagonists and enemies although the Roman Catholic Church always preached tolerance of the Jews.

In a reversal of the Mesopotamian situation in which the Hebrews were the junior religion- Abel to Cain- in the European situation the Jews became the senior or parent religion, in their mind, while Christianity derived partially from Judaism became the junior religion. As the Jews express it their religion was the olive tree on which the Christian branch was grafted. Hence, Christianity took its life from Judaism. The origins of Judaism from predecessor religions was then forgotten.

The Roman Catholic hierarchy accepted this interpretation. However, socially and politically the Jews were a foreign and exotic element in Europe. As the Bible was the foundation of the religion and society the Jews as successors of the Hebrews received a consideration they not normally would have had.

The Jews therefore had no desire to assimilate and lose their special identity with either Christianity or Aryan Europe always considering themselves an autonomous people in a European milieu. They always had the hope of becoming rulers instead of ruled thus creating both political and social antagonism.

As exotics many wonderful legends and superstitions grew around them not least of which was the wonderful legend of Ahasereus , the Wandering Jew. The story was that Ahasereus mocked Jesus on his way to Calvary even striking him so that Jesus cursed him condemning him to wander until he came again. Thus, Ahasereus was thought to wander through Europe for centuries. Many reported seeing him while many Jews took the pose for what it was worth.

Indeed, the Jews had a rocky time in Europe, and, actually, everywhere else. While cursed by Jesus they were blessed by the Catholic Pope with the greatest boon of all time. That was the permission to be usurers. Christians were denied the right to loan money at interest so the Pope handed the Jews a monopoly on the greatest money machine ever invented. The gift that keeps on giving.

By interest, we’re not talking seven or eight percent, we’re talking forty, fifty percent or more for as little as a few days. So, essentially all the money in Europe came into Jewish hands. Also as a strange people in a strange land they were able to function as intermediaries between the kings and their peoples as tax farmers.

Ben Zion Netanyahu proudly explained how it worked in his history of the Jews in Spain. The king requested that they provide a sum of money for his annual expenses. The Jewish tax farmers then went out and squeezed the populace as dry as they could, gave the king his share and kept the rest. As the populace had no money or even seed or equipment they were then compelled to borrow their own money back at exorbitant interest to continue in their trade of farming. Netanyahu was quite proud of this method of extortion.

While the Jews lament that they were forced into usury because all other occupations were closed to them, if one remembers, Jesus overturned the money lenders tables on the porch of the Temple in Jerusalem. Usury was nothing new to them in Europe.

Because of usury and many other reasons, the presence of the Jews in Europe was always troubled. Perhaps as the Jews considered themselves the senior element of the Semito-Aryan religion they believed that they had the right to rule over the Aryans. The Jews had many misconceptions. Because of their short ill-informed memory they thought their short two or three thousand year history, at the time, gave them precedence over the Europeans when the reverse was true. Aryan religious concepts went far back in time perhaps to the mystical kingdom of Shambala deep in Central Asia. In fact, the Aryans made their entrance into the Middle East sometime in the Taurean Age long before the Jews split off from their Semitic ancestors, when the Sumerians arrived.

Because the Aryans were equally ignorant of their past, history not yet having been invented, they have always accepted Jewish claims. In fact, as the Jews claim that the House of David has a permanent claim to rule the British monarchs claim to be descended from the House of David.

While the actual term anti-Semitism dates only from 1875 devised by the German Wilhelm Mars, the problem of so-called anti-Semitism has been an ancient issue in Europe. To the Jews the term is one of opprobrium which they have made a sin of the first magnitude and which the Aryans have accepted. In fact, anti-Semitism merely a reaction to the claims of Semitism as why should it not be.

The Jews assiduously maintained an autonomy within Europe making no effort to be assimilated or absorbed by the dominant Aryan culture. Thus Jews and Aryans lived in a state of cold war, much like an irritating boil on the neck. The bounds of toleration were always strained and actually one way as the Jews did not tolerate the Europeans. At times the Aryans rebelled at the Semitic irritations. In 1190 they were expelled from Britain, in 1307 they were expelled from France, at various times they were expelled from the various principalities of Germany and in 1492 as the Spaniards completed the reconquest of Spain they were expelled from that State. Of course, all these expulsions were done because of the unaccountable bigotry of the various States but not by irritating Jewish behavior.

The expulsions were never complete and total and Jews either wheedled their way back where they could or lived quietly disguised.

They nevertheless lived an independent existence maintaining their customs and culture relatively intact but over the centuries they had always assimilated facets of host cultures.

The expulsion from Spain on top of all the other expulsions that remained in effect exasperated the Jews to the boiling point and at that time they declared war on Europe. Their hatred of Aryans knew no bounds and still doesn’t. They vowed the total destruction of Europe. Remember the Amalekites.

So, as I say, the expulsion from Spain threw the Jews into a frenzy. They vowed utter and total vengeance on Europe. The vengeance began to take shape a little over a hundred years later in mid-seventeenth century. After a succession of failed messiahs, it was thought the real thing had arrived in the person of one Sabbatai Zevi. The year designated for the uprising was 1666. The new date of the millennium. In the frenzy of the expected millennium many Jews sold or gave away everything, liquidating their lives to that point as all would be provided in the new age. The attitude was something like that of the Jewish-Roman wars at the beginning of the Age of Pisces when the redemption was thought to be nigh.

At the signal from the messiah, Zevi, living in Turkey, Jews were prepared to begin slaughtering their European neighbors much as they had done in Egypt and Cyprus in the second century. The signal never came from Zevi as he turned Moslem instead. However the ball was now rolling.

Just about this time, the end of the sixteenth, beginning of the seventeenth, the European Enlightenment began to unfold. The Enlightenment did not include the Jews. The progress of the Enlightenment as might be expected was slow and embraced the cognoscenti first.

Just as the Enlightenment destroyed the imaginary Land of Faerie so also began the attack on the imaginary Kingdom of Heaven and God. There were no fairies and there was no God. Moreso than the Christian world that worshipped the man-god Jesus for which there was some concrete evidence, the loss of their god kicked the legs out from under Judaism. Their reason d’etre was gone. As their foundation was based on the magic of the Talmud and other sacred writing they had no counter argument to Science nor could they compete scientifically as they were still rooted in Talmudic magic.

Thus, while the European world moved rapidly ahead with scientific discovery after discovery Judaism was in a Time of Troubles trying to discover the way ahead and regain the supremacy they thought they had enjoyed as the senior member of the Jewish-Catholic Semitic faith. For the Jews, the nineteenth century as one of perceived inferiority.

It was not until the beginning of the twentieth century that the Jews found any answer to Science and that answer was to undermine the foundation of Science by introducing Jewish magic into it. In the twenty-first century the Jew Barbara Specter would found her organization Paideia specifically to re-instate Talmudic magic that she called Jewish knowledge. She wishes to put ‘Jewish knowledge’ on a basis of equality with ‘European knowledge’, that is Science, as she says. That is Science and Magic as of equal credibility.

And what is magic? Magic is the invisible world of faeries and gods. An imagined world that cannot be brought into existence, a notion that Science had destroyed, those imaginary worlds. As Robert Graves expressed it in his poem, Old Gods Almost Dead.

Owls- they whinny down the night;

Bats go zig-zag by.

Old gods tamed to silence, there

In the woods they lurk,

Greedy of human stuff to snare

In nets of murk.

Look up, else your eyes will drown

In a moving sea of black;

Between the tree-tops, upside down,

Goes the sky-track.

Look up, else your feet will stray

 

Into that ambuscade

Where spider like they trap their prey

With webs of shade.

For though creeds whirl away in dust,

Faith dies and men forget,

These aged gods of power and lust

Cling to life yet—

Old gods almost dead, malign

Starving for unpaid dues:

Incense and fire, salt, blood and wine

And a drumming muse.

Banished to woods and a sickly moon,

Shrink to mere bogey things,

Who spoke with thunder once at noon

To prostrate kings.

With thunder from an open sky

To warrior, virgin, priest,

Bowing in fear with a dazzled eye

Toward the dread East—

Proud gods, humbled, sunk so low,

Living with ghosts and ghouls,

And ghosts of ghosts of last year’s snow

And dead toad stools.

Yes, the bold attempt to establish an Eternal God in 4000BC while surviving a marvelous length of time was coming to a close. The magic associated with that god was being invalided out of existence. The death of gods was not uncommon, the fields of history were littered with them. Yet even as Science arose remnants of old gods live on, wrecks in quiet enclaves. The great pantheon of Greek history still lead a hidden existence in the character of Diana the matriarchal archetype of Northern Europe who had buried the patriarchal Merlin of that greatest of all fairy stories The Tales Of King Arthur. The monument of Arthur still lives on.

The Jewish god after a long history of failure in protecting his people fatally failed in Spain when the Spaniards ejected the Jews from their presence, and then the last efflorescence in 1666 when the last messiah failed at his task.

Initially the Jews were thrown into disarray. Quirky cults arose, one Hasidism, created by BalShemTov in the Ukraine, and another by the crazed visionary Jacob Frank.

The Jews abandoned their god and tuned to terrestrial solutions of their problem. Now, along with Science the rise of money began in earnest. The possession of vast estates that produced little money began to give way before the developing money economy of the Jews and that not long after the failure of Zevi and the quirky new sects.

The way was shown by one Joseph Oppenheimer, known as the Jud Suss, coming from the hot bed of new Judaism, Frankfort-on-the-Main in the principality of Hesse Cassel, that would also produce the perfection of money manipulators in the Rothschild Dynasty that many say ruled the world of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

A Short Story

Far Gresham’s Dilemma

by

R.E. Prindle

 Pages torn from the memoirs of Far Gresham 12/25/1981

Edited by R.E. Prindle

 

My troubles had been increasing. I struggled to avoid what I knew would be the inevitable conclusion. I had seen the situation developing itself, had done my best to avert it by taking evasive actions years before, but the juncture and collision of the two forces were unavoidable. When the collision occurred I knew, I hoped that I wouldn’t, but I knew that I would buckle and collapse before the concentrated hatred of my enemies. My probable reaction had been impressed into my psyche decades before. I knew this, but I, as we all are, was powerless to resist this old imprinting. Coinciding with the objective phenomena had been the gradual disintegration of my personality. Self-analysis had cleared me of nearly all deleterious psychological reactions but now I was faced with trying to exorcise the central external factor which controlled my psyche; which compelled reactions in me which were irrational and beyond my control.

I was now approaching forty-two. Over the years as I had peeled back the layers of the onion seeking that core which would liberate me from my thralldom and allow me to face the world with a clear mind and cohesive purpose. I had resolved many aspects of my personality but this one remained beyond my grasp. All my efforts to convince myself to deal with this central problem had been rebuffed by my subconscious mind. I thought I had come close on several occasions, but fear always held me back. I had convinced myself that the event was of minor importance. I believed that, while this occurrence held me in thrall, that, while it had humiliated the child I had been, this terrible happening would turn out to be insignificant. I was both right and wrong.

I was too late to alter the outcome of my objective situation but I did find salvation for my subjective situation. The latter was of the greater importance to me. The period was one of very troubled sleep. I had had several successive weeks of disturbing dreams. They did not frighten me. I knew that negotiations were being undertaken by my conscious and subconscious selves. The violence of the dreams only indicated the significance of the matter under consideration. The dreams occurred every night and seemed to last through the whole night. Obviously a climax was imminent.

The revelatory dream, that dream that liberated me from the enthrallment to the traumatic circumstances was preceded by a brief little dream that set the stage for the major revelation. The dream was a quiet little dream, merely a vignette. It was a peaceful little dream set in a scene that was potentially terrifying. Strangely, it was not.

I became conscious of looking into a darkened warehouse filled with rows and rows and stacks and stacks of boxes. In the aisles there was a man searching frantically and desperately through the boxes in the gloom of the shadowy warehouse. There was no light. I didn’t know how he expected to find anything. But he continued to search in a manner approaching frenzy.

Aroused by the noise, a guardian appeared to investigate. I recognized him immediately; it was Death. Death had not the fearsome, ugly appearance as he is usually depicted. He was a kindly looking avuncular old man with an understanding expression on his face and a shock of gray hair. He had come out to investigate the noise. He found a Burglar in the House of Death. I recognized the Burglar too. It was me. I wondered what I was looking for.

The information was immediately forthcoming, for Death, without approaching the Burglar asked him what he was doing.

The Burglar was very distraught, his expression revealed a deep distracted anguish. He replied: ‘I’m looking for my dead self. My first personality was murdered and taken from me. I need him to make myself whole again.’

Death looked at the Burglar with some amazement: ‘Are you dead?’ he asked.

‘No.’ replied the Burglar, ‘It’s my original self who was murdered.   I’m looking for his ghost.’

‘If you’re not dead then you can’t be here. Death told the Burglar in a kindly manner. ‘You must leave now or stay forever.’

But the Burglar was too distraught to comprehend his danger and blurted out: ‘But you don’t understand, I can’t leave until I find my original self.’

Death seemed to be amused rather than angered by this impertinent reply. He emitted a low warm chuckle: ‘I don’t understand? Ha. Ha. I don’t understand! If you have misplaced it or allowed it to atrophy then you have come looking in the very wrong place. You should search your own pockets first.’ His voice lowered to a tone of stern rebuke: ‘Leave now and bother me no more until I come for you.’

Darkness closed in from the edges until the middle disappeared. When I awoke I enjoyed a certain calmness amidst my general disturbance. I relaxed in a state of excitement. I knew what to do but I didn’t know how to go about it. I actively tried to compel my conscious to vex my subconscious to make it give up the secret. It was very reluctant to do so. One night in this long period of stormy dreams my subconscious presented me with a new metaphor to see if I could interpret it correctly.

When the dream took form I found myself in the playground of a grade school with another boy who was looking to me for guidance. The ground rose in three slight equal gradients to the school building which was perhaps a hundred yards in the distance. It was daytime but there was no light. No grass grows on a playground and there were only a few tufts around the occasional tree in this one. In the distance just outside the building stood a figure pointing something in my and this other boy’s direction. Taking time to get a clear look at this figure, who was a mere shadow, I discerned that he was pointing a rifle at me. This other boy said: ‘What is that red spot on your chest?’

I looked down and saw the red dot from a laser rifle centered on my heart. I immediately leaped to the side to get the dot off my heart knowing that with the laser beam on me the rifleman couldn’t miss. He stood stationary, but, now aware of the laser beam I rolled around on the ground, adopted stooping and standing postures, but no matter what I did the laser beam remained on my heart. Although I was clearly in his sights the rifleman didn’t pull the trigger. All this time the other boy kept advising me to be calm, that the rifleman wasn’t shooting. Good calm advice but the laser beam wasn’t aimed at his heart.

Finally, convinced that no shots would be fired, I ran from the schoolyard and headed for some city streets lined with middle class houses. I rushed toward them and was actually among the houses when a sentry who was stationed in a guard house which I had already passed commanded me to come back to him. I was beyond his reach and ought to have kept going but the sense of guilt which had pervaded my life prevented my continuing. I returned to the sentry box. I stood before the sentry awaiting his decision. I had broken into a nervous sweat, as had been my habit, and stood twitching guiltily. He did and said nothing. Ignored me.

Astonished at his lack of interest in me I began to wonder what this dream might mean and how it was related to my central childhood fixation. While I was standing there in my consternation my subconscious, deriding my inability to grasp the meaning of the metaphor, decided to show me the central fixation of my life, the one situation that controlled my responses to everyday life and all personal relationships. But this was no easy task. For I resisted. For this intense shame, humiliation and debasement had encased the memory behind a stout concrete block wall, or so it was represented in my dream. Perhaps the method of penetrating this wall had been suggested to me by an old movie I had seen years before, the name of the movie was The Children Of The Damned.

In this movie several intelligences from outer space had been sent to Earth to assume control of Earthmen. They were in the form of babies, the movie was produced in the wake of the Nazi Era so the babies, soon to be children, were blond and blue eyed. Obviously a thinly disguised simile for the ‘Blond Beast’. They were very aggressive. As eight-year olds their intelligence surpassed all but the most learned Earthmen. Earthmen soon grasped their danger and set out to destroy the super intelligent aliens. But the children’s penetrating intelligence, which was able to read minds, detected every plot against them. Finally a noble Earth martyr carried a brief case loaded with dynamite, a few years later he would have been able to fill his pocket with plastique, into the classroom. In order to foil the intelligence of the alien children he concentrated his thoughts on a brick wall. The children, standing in a semi-circle around him, directing their intelligence to shattering his wall, which was graphically portrayed in the movie. As the wall was destroyed bricks flying everywhere the martyr’s thoughts of the briefcase shown clear, of course, the children were too late. The bomb exploded blowing eight space kids and one noble martyr back into outer space.

So, as I stood in terrific anticipation, my subconscious directed an energy against the wall which separated me from my dead self; the assassinated child of my youth, the murdered child of another time; the hope of another universe. The concrete wall was disintegrating before my eyes. Fragments flew in every which way. As the hole in the wall was enlarged the object of the search by the Burglar in the House of Death revealed itself. Its full horror was exposed to my view.

My mind’s eye received the image. It was a scene, a snapshot. I can see this still photograph of my degradation today, now, just as it was presented to me on that night, in that dream. I was unable for several weeks thereafter to comprehend the scene. I could see the picture but try as I might I could not actually remember the sequence of events. Still my mind began to slowly reconstruct the situation.

This period of my life, from four to eight, had always been jumbled In my memory. I had never been able to arrange events of that period into chronological order. I was now able to unfold those years and reconstruct my life of that period.

The picture I was shown was simply this. A group of twelve children, we would all have been six or seven in the second grade, were standing in a semi-circle around a child in frozen motion on one foot in mortal terror and a cold sweat. Elsewhere on the playground, this was during recess, stood twelve other children in disarray. This was the incident that shaped my reactions to life, that directed my responses against my will.

There was still no memory. The scene was not brought to life, converted from a single snapshot into a cinematic motion picture. Nor has it since. The memory was and is too painful. Yet I have been able to reconstruct that terrible moment and the steps that led up to it.

Partially I did this from memory; partially from research. I never contacted any of my former classmates. I went back to the Valley and collecting the name of my classmates from the school archives and examining the archives of the Valley Star around those years I have been able to reconstruct the following account. As in all wars there was an ante-bellum period. It begins actually, before I was born.

My mother had never wanted me. In her family the eldest female cousin was given the rights of primogeniture. As I was the first born child of my mother and her three sisters, she had desperately hoped for a daughter so that she could leap to being chief among her sisters. Her disappointment when I was born was severe. She never forgave me for not being a girl, nor was she prepared to assert my rights against my female cousin born four years later. It is just as well that she abandoned me for I can never forgive her for having abandoned my rightful role as eldest cousin in my extended family. My cousin, Danielle, when she was born had displaced me. This early abandonment in favor of my cousin has also left its mark on my character. My mother was no mother to me.

She, while in high school inadvertently set in motion the animosity directed at me in the second grade. Such is the unpredictability and uncertainty of life. She, while in the twelfth grade, accepted a date with a boy by the name of David Hirsh. David Hirsh was the son of Solomon Hirsh who owned Hershey’s Department Store. I do not know what my mother’s parents did but I do know that they were not well to do, nor were they ever of the social station the Hirshes enjoyed. Well to do boys only date girls from a lower social stratum for one purpose. Perhaps my mother was too naïve to know this, or perhaps she flattered herself that this rich kid might actually fall in love with her. He, on his part, being a rich kid, expected to score. Go all the way as they expressed it in those days.

Cars had not attained the universality in 1936 that they posses at the present. David Hirsh had a car of his very own which he could drive to school and park for all to see. His status at school was very high. Picking my mother up in his new automobile he employed a trick that undoubtedly antedated cars. He drove her a few miles out of town, parking the car in a grove of trees by the side of the road he quite bluntly told her to put out or get out. My mother would not be intimidated by a boy who threw off the disguise of a knight in shining armor and announced he was nothing but an arrogant rich cad in a shiny automobile. She got out. Dismayed at this rejection of what he considered a low class broad who should have been grateful for his attention, he shot off a few uncomplimentary remarks about my mother’s national antecedents. Now, from 1900 to, say, 1940 when immigrant nationalities were still in process of acculturation, national antagonisms were high. Even in the thirties, after immigration had been closed down in 1924, foreign accents were common and ethnic traits still persisted. My mother while not having an accent could still be identified as a Pole by her vocal rhythms. She still clung to certain Polish articles of dress. She still had a romantic attachment to the Polish babushka, or kerchief worn over the head and tied beneath the chin. Thus in this ethnic jostling racial and national slurs were commonly expressed. Fist fights occurred over national differences. Immigrants were stopped on the streets by natives and compelled to recite the pledge of allegiance of kiss the American flag.

Therefore the following passage in historical perspective should not be alarming. It is history. It is the way it was. Hirsh knew that my mother was of Polish ancestry. Everyone knew everyone else’s national antecedents. It was important. Now, irritated to the point of distraction by my mother’s refusal of his improper proposal, mixing nationalities freely he called a dumb Polack and a stupid Bohunk. Either he was ignorant of his geography or in is frustration he lost touch with who he was talking to. Perhaps in his sexual rut he saw double. I don’t know.

There is an old saying: People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. This old saying applies to everyone but it especially applied to David Hirsh. For, as his name indicates, he was Jewish. One of the many nationalities with representatives in the United States. In a world of immigrant antipathies there are pejorative nicknames for every group of people. My mother’s mind was well furnished against any contingency of name calling.

As David Hirsh inched slowly along just behind my mother shouting these derogatory national epithets, as well as others even more personal, my mother absorbed in her disappointment was oblivious to everything else. Then regaining some composure she began to hear what he was saying. Taking umbrage at this very unjust conduct, she returned a few sharp epithets. She used words like ‘kike’ and ‘sheeny.’ Words that have all but lost their meaning today.

Disappointed in love, his heart filling with rancor at what he later described as that ‘arrogant Polack bitch,’ Hirsh heard those words flung back at him and his heart in turn became cold. With that marvelous ability that human beings have of disregarding their own provocative words and actions, David Hirsh immediately forgot his insult of ‘Put out or get out’ and the ethnic slurs he had first hurled at my mother. Swallowing hard he decided that he had been rejected because he was Jewish and my mother was an anti-Semite. He gave the car the gas, drove off in a shower of gravel and left her to walk home.

The matter might have rested there except for the fact that Hirsh was prone to dig his own grave. He would always be an adept at self-embarrassment because of his vindictiveness. Hirsh had boasted to his friends who he was going to date, what he was going to do to her and where he was going to do it. In those ancient times before macadam and concrete had completely altered the landscape as we knew it, the roads were graveled, especially in rural and semi-rural areas. As the Valley is very wet, deep wide ditches ran along each side of the road to drain the fields. Three of Hirsh’s friends, out to watch the action and verify Hirsh’s boasts, witnessed the whole thing from within a ditch. The next week at school Hirsh was not allowed to forget or even accept responsibility for his action. ‘She’ had done it to him. She must pay.

Two years later my mother married my father. As they say, I was the result of that union. Four years later my mother divorced my father. We went to live with her parents. While we lived there I entered Kindergarten at Emerson Grade School. At five I had not yet heard of class consciousness. I was apparently the only innocent in the room. At Emerson the classes were all of about twenty-five students. My room divided into two social classes. There were twelve students in each group, that I will call after one of the two classes in H.G. Wells’ story of the Time Machine, the Eloy. There were twelve students in the group I denominate Morlocks, plus myself. I remain uncomprehending of class differences to this day.

Amongst my classmates was a boy named Michael Hirsh. Michael was the son of the same David Hirsh who had dated my mother. David Hirsh had not forgotten the consequences of his unfortunate behavior. Thus the biblical heritage expressed itself as the ‘sins’ of the Mother shall be visited on the son.

Michael Hirsh, as I now believe, on his father’s instructions, set about to humiliate me to avenge his father’s humiliation of himself.   Kindergarten was not a happy time for me. I was rejected by the Eloy and seeing the abject disposition of the Morlocks, I had no desire to take a place with them. Rejected by my mother because I was a boy, I was now rejected by my classmates.

I was a lonely boy and perhaps consequently a difficult one. Thus the year passed. I played alone in the schoolyard and remained ignorant of my situation.

Did I mention there was a war on? Yes, this was 1943 and 1944. Hitler and Tojo were out to conquer the world. Millions of men were in uniform. Industrial manpower was in short supply. Prior to the wars the Valley did not have a large Black population. Blacks were encouraged to migrate North to work in the factories as the White boys had been drafted for the war. Thus racial antagonisms were added to immigrant national antagonisms. I’m not bragging. Many times I have wished that I wasn’t that way, but I believe in equality before the law and fair play. Laugh at me if you will. It’s my way and I’m not going to change, can’t, won’t.

One day in Spring, just before summer vacation, as Kindergarten was drawing to a close three little Black kids were introduced into our midst. Here is where the direct meaning of my dream begins. A tremor went through the class. Today you can search the country over without finding a person who will admit that they were ever prejudiced against Black people. David Hirsh was no exception. Hirsh stayed as well informed as a busybody. Aware of the Black kids time of arrival he instructed his son Michael what to do when they arrived.

Michael, who had a habit of emphasizing his opinions with his projected index finger, shook it at each of us and told us that under no circumstances were we to fraternize with the Black kids. I thought this was wrong, but, already an outsider, I wasn’t going to make it worse for myself by objecting.

On the way to recess Michael Hirsh re-admonished us. Once outside, however, he added a new condition. He demanded that the Black kids sit on the edge of the sand box and not move during recess. This was going too far. I took offence. As I played alone I was not averse to the Black kids having to play alone, but I could not condone their not being allowed to play within themselves.

By coincidence I was standing between the Black kids and Hirsh who stood there shaking his finger at them. Hirsh stood before the Eloy who were gathered behind him. I have never been overly keen on fighting. I was always small for my age. Hirsh was a good two inches taller than me. I told Hirsh and the Eloy that I didn’t think it was right to make those kids sit there during recess. He told me that was the way it was going to be. I said, No, I might refuse to talk to them but I couldn’t allow this. I exhorted the Black kids to get up and fight with me against the injustice. Hirsh was dumbfounded. No one had ever challenged his authority before. I was not only challenging him I was offering to fight him. Those little Black kids left me hanging out to dry. They wouldn’t budge. Fortunately Hirsh was a coward. He had already stepped back into the protective pocket of the Eloy. I had envisioned Armageddon but now Hirsh and the Eloy had melted away.

I thought it was over. I had no idea of the seriousness of my crime. Michael Hirsh went home and bawled to his father. His father had not anticipated that his son would be challenged. He had failed to provide his son with the appropriate response. Michael Hirsh’s self-confidence was shattered. I had no idea what I had done. As my mother, by standing up for herself, had humiliated David Hirsh, so now I had likewise humiliated Michael Hirsh. David Hirsh was enraged. Failing to see the injustice of his cause, a second time, he determined on revenge.

After school the next day Hirsh padded up behind me and hissed into my ear: ‘We’re going to get you.’ I did believe he meant what he said. But the year was over and it would have to wait till next year.

At just this time my mother made her first attempt to abandon me. She arranged for me to go live with a family named Smith. The Valley straddles the River and is therefore divided into two distinct towns with two distinct characters; The East and West sides. The East Side was gradually claimed by the incoming tide of Blacks. The Whites moved out into the hamlets, or West Side. The Smiths lived on the West Side of the River. I transferred from Emerson to Thoreau. I was relieved, for I knew that had I remained at Emerson Hirsh and the Eloy would have their vengeance.

Except for the longer minutes with which childhood is endowed my relief was short lived. In May of that year the Smiths informed my mother that I could no longer stay with them. My mother, still unwilling to accept me, found room and board for me with a family named Johnson. On the East Side. In the Emerson school district. I was terrified. I returned to Emerson in the mid-First Grade. There was an electric shock amongst the Eloy as the message ‘He’s back’ flashed from mouth to mouth.

By this time I had forgotten the reason for my persecution. I was so concerned about the enmity of the Eloy that I never thought to reason why. My offense was certainly a justified one, or what I would have thought my so-called offence to have been. Actually Hirsh and the Eloy didn’t consider their action against the Blacks as unjust. Therefore, in their eyes, my offence consisted of an act of insubordination; a refusal to keep the place they had assigned me. The Eloy were unrelenting; I was harassed continually. The Morlocks either actively followed orders to interfere with me or were too timid to resist. The teacher acquiesced in the attitude of the Eloy. Perhaps David Hirsh put pressure on her after Michael informed him I was back. Authority is always week kneed. It will always accept the position of the stronger. Justice is not a factor in its decisions.

Taken by surprise, David Hirsh, his son and the Eloy could not obtain a revenge that would gratify their desires during the four remaining months of the first grade. David Hirsh thought long and hard on the matter. The Biblical answer was an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. The punishment must fit the crime. David Hirsh’s thoughts roved back to the celebrated Dreyfus Affair in France at the end of the nineteenth century. Dreyfus, a Jew, had been convicted of spying. Part of his punishment was a brutal degrading. He had been compelled to stand before his assembled brother officers as he was stripped of the insignia of his association with the French army; had them torn from his uniform and thrown in the mud. Ruminating on this famous cause celebre he associated it also with his son’s embarrassment. For as difficult as it is for me to conceive, Michael Hirsh took my objection to his injustice in the same manner in which I will describe my humiliation. In his mind David Hirsh sought to avenge both Dreyfus and his son on me.

Hirsh formulated his plan, instructed and drilled his son and the Eloy in the procedure. I remained with the Johnsons in a state of agony, fearing the approach of September.

I know that winter had not arrived as the leaves were still on the trees, so it is possible that I was gotten on the first day of school. I still do not know exactly what happened. I am only surmising from an interpretation of the photograph I was shown in my dream; or perhaps I am drawing up information reservoirs my subconscious still denies me access to. I have thought that my punishment was the requirement imposed on the Black children two years previously in Kindergarten. But in reality it was the ‘punishment’ I had had unknowingly imposed on Michael Hirsh. David Hirsh had instructed his son what to do. His son executed perfectly. At recess the Eloy arranged themselves in a semi-circle around me. The worthless Morlocks, who were excluded from all Eloy intercourse hung listlessly in the background where they belonged. In Kindergarten Hirsh had encountered me in the point position. Exposed, he had retreated into the protection of the Eloy behind him. His lack of character at that moment was the crime with which I was charged. Now, as the keystone in the arch surrounding me, protected deep within the pocket which enclosed me, from within which authority always works, coward that he was, all authority is cowardly, he was prepared to deal with me. I ha no problem with fear. I would have fought if challenged. I might have fought if Hirsh had been on point as in Kindergarten. Maybe the movie of the Alien Kids acted as a mild solvent, loosening the cover on my suppressed memory which decades later allowed me to recover a souvenir of this incident, for just as the Space Kids glared hatred at the Noble Martyr only to break his reserves too late, so the Eloy gathered around me and glared hatred into my soul. If they had all set upon me physically the result could have been borne, but I could not resist their cumulative concentrated hatred. I crumbled beneath the projected blizzard of hatred. David Hirsh achieved more than his goal. He not only humiliated me he killed my soul. Michael Hirsh, in the keystone was shaking the customary finger at me. He told me that I was to take a step toward him and stop when he told to stop. I raised my foot and he said stop. In that awkward position I was told to remain for the duration of recess. Thus I was substituted for the Negroes in Kindergarten.

I hope the reader doesn’t think badly of me. I don’t know that I am ashamed today although I resent myself for having complied. I know in my heart that they would have backed down if I had resisted.

Hirsh must have been the shadowy figure in my dream. His finger must have been the laser rifle, or perhaps the laser beam was a symbol of the hatred projected on me. The figure never fired because the laser beam represented a hatred that would never cease.

The memory of the event was immediately suppressed by me. I died at that moment. As Abram became Abraham and Jacob became Israel, so even though my name remained the same I became a different person, a stranger in a strange land. I therefore did not give an appropriate response to my punishment. David Hirsh had expected me to go the Michael Hirsh and the Eloy and beg forgiveness for my original sin, accept my punishment and go forth and sin no more. They were disappointed for I felt, not remembered, only their rejection. While I would never have asked their forgiveness, I might have tried to correct the matter.

Throughout the second grade I endured the active resentment of the Eloy joined with the passive acquiescence of the Morlocks, for they were forbidden to speak to me. They were powerless in their self-accepted mortification, useless in their ineffectuality. The symbol of authority, the teacher, without ever seeking my side of the story, said that I had been justly chastised. Authority lacks integrity completely.

I became a very distraught little boy.

As the second grade ended my mother informed me that I would be leaving the Johnsons. After the emotional wrench of leaving the Smiths I had prepared myself for further disappointment by making no attachment to the Johnsons. My only question was, where to next? I knew it was serious when she kneeled down to address me face to face. It’s always serious when an adult lowers themselves to a position of equality with the child.

She told me that she wanted me to enter the Children’s Home. The Municipal Orphanage. I went numb. First, I had a mother, or thought I did. Second, I had passed the back fence and stared horrified at the inmates. I didn’t know then that she meant to abandon me entirely but I subconsciously feared such a thing. I resisted stubbornly although I saw that no matter what I said she was going to put me there anyway. Finally, in an attempt to save face, I asked her if I would still have to attend Emerson. She said the Children’s home was in the Longfellow School District. Only have trusted this perfidious woman I severed myself from humanity and entered the House of the Distraught. The boys dorm was on the fourth floor. But my experience in the Orphanage is not germane to my story and I return to the war against me by the Hirshes.

Beset by psychological distresses before I entered the Orphanage, my emotional anxieties increased a thousand fold. I have often compared the sensation to an excess of electrical current passing through a transformer. All fuses blew. Wires broke loose and flashed fire to the skies. There was a loud hum, a boom, and then silence. I do not know how I survived and recovered even though that recovery would take forty years. As shattered as I was I received no mercy from David Hirsh.

I was now eight. The two wars, the European and Pacific had ended. The Japanese Empire and the Axis Powers had gone down to defeat. The enormity of the Nazi policies became apparent after the war. The impression of the American people was incalculable. The terrific inhumanity of the Nazis was difficult to comprehend. The wholesale slaughter of people for which they had no use, both within and without the borders of Germany the murder of as many intellectuals as they could get their hands on, the slaughter and debasement of the Polish nation, other Eastern and Central European Slavs and, of course, the attempted extermination of the Jews were staggering to the American mind. The single mindedness of the Nazis in the pursuit of their goals was incredible. The human mind changed from the shock of recognition.

The destruction of the Jews created a feeling amongst the Jews comparable to my own upon entering the Children’s Home. For the five years after the war, the American Jews were devastated. They had suffered no discomfort in the US but the ant colony had been disturbed, all ants were affected. They began to see Fascists everywhere. They trembled in fear that it might happen, would happen, in the United States. A Jewish writer, Ben Hecht, stated the feeling most poignantly when he stated the feeling simply as: The Jews struck out.

David Hirsh took it very hard. For the Jewish immigrants America had been a land of unexampled opportunity and freedom from the national conflicts of which they had been a part of in Europe. Their history had been one of conflict. Prior to the nineteenth century they had been in conflict with Catholicism. After the French Revolution when the influence of Catholicism had waned they began a pan national confrontation with the Pan Germans and Pan Slavs. As they butted heads with the Slavs in particular it became apparent that the Slavs would not bend to the Jewish will. By mid-nineteenth century the conflict had become bloody. A group of French Jews decided that the only recourse was to remove the Jews from Slavdom and colonize elsewhere. The Jewish Colonization Association was formed. Beginning in 1860 it was begun to transfer the entire Jewish population from Slavdom to colonies ranging from Argentina to Canada. The majority came to the United States. The difference between the Pale of Settlement in Eastern Europe and the United States was as between night and day. A transition from the rural routes to Coney Island. From medieval technology to a land of scientific marvels. From the attentive supervision of the Russian government to the complete indifference of the American government. They arrived as opportunity became a byword for America. Most stayed where they landed in New York City. Solomon Hirsh, David’s father, who was not without resources, or at least had contacts with men with resources, looked West, staked out the Valley as his personal duchy and built up a successful department store.

David Hirsh, born in 1918 in the Valley knew nothing of Eastern Europe. His life had been a life of plenty when plenty was enough for anybody. Good clothes, good food, good cars, good social position. David Hirsh had never known any more discrimination than Poles, Italians, Greeks, Lithuanians or any one of dozens of nationalities. He had known less. So in those fifty years or so of immigration he as well as a great many Jews had grown lax in their attention to the religion of their fathers. A great many would probably have become lapsed Jews but for the events in Europe during the thirties and especially in the wake of the European war. Nazi atrocities reversed the trend and confirmed them in their commitment to Judaism. David Hirsh was one of these.

It didn’t happen here. David was now twenty-eight heading into the power years of his thirties and forties. He was rich and influential in the Valley community. Always good looking, tall and well proportioned, the weight one always gains with age had filled out his form and features admirably. He had married well. He had married the former Linda Webster, an Episcopalian. By so doing he had joined two Valley fortunes. The Hershey Department Store money and the Webster Coal Yard money. He had three lovely children, well, two plus Michael. The Department store and the Webster coal yards still prospered, although the increasing chain store competition after the wars would undermine the base of the department store and the Webster’s assumption of the continued use of coal didn’t foresee the switch to gas and oil would see the coal yards and department store sit idle and empty. Still David Hirsh had everything. Family, position and the money to buy anything he could conceive. He was an American citizen in the best of all possible worlds.

Always of an imperious temper and a vindictive mind he now brooded over the European disaster of the Jews, as did all Jews and knew not what to do. As usual he wanted revenge, which meant against all the goyim; for he believed the whole world was responsible as he and the Jews believed it had sat idly by and let it happen. His grief distorted his perception of reality; although to a certain extent he was right. For, while no one but the Nazis would have attempted such an atrocious deed, still the world had been rather indifferent to the fate of the Jews.

But if all the goyim were guilty he was faced with too many targets. Unable to find satisfactory victims for his anger, he turned to child abuse and directed this additional hatred to me. He didn’t exactly remember why he believed it but he believed that my mother was an anti-Semite because of her rejection of his rude advances. He projected his own inadequacies on me and in his mind made me the future father of a nation of anti-Semites. The memory of his humiliation because of his frustrated designs on my mother still rankled in his mind. It mattered not whether he had caused his own embarrassment. Reversing responsibility came easy to him as it does to most people. It only mattered to him that he had suffered humiliation, and from an inferior bitch in his mind. He always sought to avenge his thwarted crimes, to heap injury on injury, to add insult to insult.

I had not begged for forgiveness after my humiliation so he believed that I had not been hurt, that I had stood there In jest. His natural vindictiveness now augmented by his rage against the world, Hirsh had planned a nasty reception for me as I entered Third grade. However I had evaded his net that year by transferring from Emerson to Longfellow. He was unaware that he had already hurt me as much as mortal man can be hurt; for myself had died of remorse on that September morn. He had murdered my self-esteem and I could not continue in life. I carried my dead self around with me and my walking body was half dead. It would be forty years before I could retrieve my dead self from the House of Death and begin to re-integrate my personality.

But the challenge to Michael Hirsh’s dignity by my rebellion had been severe; although I neither knew nor cared. He was being groomed to be an ever victorious man of affairs; for some reason my revolt had shattered his self-confidence and lowered him in the esteem of the Eloy. He was never to attain the same kind of self-confidence as he had enjoyed in Kindergarten again. For this I was blamed although Michael was only of mediocre talent and authority and would have had and did enjoy much lesser stature in a world larger than his Emerson class.

It didn’t take the Hirshes more than a month to locate me in the Orphanage and at Longfellow. One day in late October I saw Michael Hirsh conferring with a third grade classmate, one of the Websters, although I didn’t know the connection at the time. I knew I was in for more trouble. I was but it wasn’t that bad. The kids of the Children’s Home were kept a separate group at Longfellow. The old two class Eloy-Morlock division was broken up. The Orphanage insulated me from direct vengeance. David Hirsh watched, he stalked. He was unhappy and frustrated. He brooded and planned. A thirty year old man, acting anonymously, waged his war against a defenseless eight year old boy. The third grade passed. Hirsh planned his move for my fourth grade.

In the fourth grade I understood why the Eloy-Morlock division had disappeared. As I was turning nine the organization of the world began to become apparent. I began to see more tings. There were probably two third grade classes at Longfellow but if so I was ignorant of the other. In the fourth grade there were definitely two different class rooms. One upstairs, in a large bright airy room where the Eloy were assigned and another in a half basement, the windows level with the ground, to which we of the Children’s Home were assigned as well as others who were not fortunate enough to be assigned upstairs.

Our teacher was a woman named Miss Marks. She was a very old miss. Miss Marks was a Sephardic Jew. Her ancestors had arrived from Brazil in 1654 in the first contingent of Jews to arrive in the United States. Her name as she pointed out to us several times had been Marques in Portuguese. Her ancestor who had landed as Marques turned up several years later as Marks. She was very international in her outlook. Our study program revolved around readings about children of other lands.

As improbable as it may seem, David Hirsh devoted great gobs of time to divining his next plan to wreak vengeance on me. The plan he devised was complex, requiring the involvement of dozens of people and the complicity of hundreds. Thus, should it fail his reputation would be placed in jeopardy. David Hirsh started his campaign in the spring of my third grade, just before the humidity of summer. He was powerful amongst the Jewish community and very influential among goys. His wife Linda, nee Webster, was equally socially and politically active as her husband. She was of top standing among the women of the town. Enlisting supporters they, together, began a campaign to separate the kids from the Children’s Home from their own on the reasoning that as a class of social lepers or ‘white niggers’ we were detrimental to their childrens’ welfare. They worked hard to have a separate facility assigned to us. Failing that they wanted that, at least, we might be made to attend classes within the walls of the orphanage as, in fact, was the case with the Catholic Orphanage down the street. We were to be contained so that we might not contaminate their children. This separation might have occurred in democratic America except for the almighty dollar, God bless it. The expense could not be justified. There was seemingly no real objection to the deed.

Frustrated in their ambition, driven by their vindictiveness, the Hirshes foolishly adopted Plan B. Incredibly it succeeded if only temporarily. But for one woman its success might have been permanent.

Hirsh still thought that I had merely sloughed off my lesson in the second grade. Thus in his mind I had not only humiliated his son in Kindergarten but had done the same thing in the second grade. I had been accorded he dignity of a rebuke by Michael Hirsh himself. There was a certain dignity to that that ought to be appreciated. Handled properly by myself I might have gained honorary admission to the Eloy. Now I was to be treated to the same indignity that the Black kids had endured. I was to be their ‘nigger’ forever.

The Hirshes now sought to separate their children from we of the Orphanage within the class. Miss Marks made the orphans sit together along one wall. The Hirshes influence in town was so great that the School Board was persuaded to prevent us from playing, not only with, but playing on the same playground with the parented kids. During recess Miss Marks was compelled to separate the Orphanage kids from the parented kids. We were compelled to sit on benches and watch the parented kids play. If an additional participant was needed one of us was called up.

As we stood before Miss marks while she, suppressing her embarrassment, explained this to us, it all seemed vaguely familiar. I couldn’t remember my ritual murder but I did remember Kindergarten. For many years I thought the fourth grade incident was the only revenge attempted. I saw through the attempt immediately. The notion was repugnant to Miss Marks, as it should have been to any honest and fair person. She implemented the requirement but reluctantly. Inadvertently I defeated the Hirshes in a minute. My victories over them were always Pyrrhic.

As recess began Miss Marks instructed us in the new program. Whether I remembered Michael Hirsh and the Blacks or whether I was as indignant in the fourth grade at such nonsense as I had been in Kindergarten, I don’t know. The others from the Orphanage sat down obediently. I grabbed a ball and ran off to play by myself in another part of the playground. As I couldn’t quickly persuade any of the others to follow me, I left them. Immediately there was a chorus of ‘You’ve got to sit down.’   It came from both groups. My reply was a very aggressive ‘Make me.’   No one was riding point that day. They never do when a fair fight is in the offing.

Then a ruse was attempted. Someone of the parented kids left the field and a substitute was needed. One of ours was called off the bench to come and tell me that I was selected as the replacement. I wish I could say that I said a witty or trenchant thing but angry people seldom do. I was angry. I just said ‘no.’

David Hirsh and Michael Hirsh had been parked in a side street facing the yard looking at the scene through their windshield expecting to enjoy my humiliation. They both stared in disbelief as their efforts were foiled again. David Hirsh’s head sagged to the rim of the steering wheel. Mechanically he turned the key in the ignition and angrily shifted into first. Both David and Michael’s faces twisted into expressions of chagrin. Their brows hooded their eyes, their mouths gaped as the edges turned downwards. Their perfidious design had failed again. Another bitter pill.

Miss Marks was overcome with shame and remorse. She had tried to recover her self-respect by offering me the role of substitute. A role I rightly took as another insult. Her Judaism was offended by such criminal discrimination. Unlike Hirsh she suffered from the restrictions which had been placed on her people at other times in other far places. Her Portuguese ancestors had been lucky to escape the Inquisition. They had found a refuge in Brazil only during the short period of Dutch control of the colony. When the Portuguese regained Brazil her ancestors fled to the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam, later to be called New York. She remembered, or knew this only too well. Rather than inflicting punishment on innocent others for remembered conflicts she sincerely wished to remove injustice from the world.

The second day of the segregation was too much for her. After school that day she informed the Principal of Longfellow that she would have to resign if the segregation continued. As the Hirshes, the instigators, were well known for their wish to segregate we orphans and they attended the temple together, so that David was well known to her, she then went immediately to him to whom she offered her unwelcome opinion. Nor was she kind or diplomatic. She vented her full indignation and threw her own guilt at his feet. David Hirsh was abashed. The next day the order of segregation was rescinded. She was a courageous woman. She acted as an individual, not as one of a collective.

The repercussions of the failure of their plan were very serious. The whole concept of what America stood for had been violated. In the aftermath the reflection on the consequences of their action caused many embarrassed faces in the Valley. As the prime movers, the Hirshes bore the brunt of the blame. The two lost some fair credibility. The concern was not so much the justice or injustice of their crime, for, in society the only concern is whether one succeeds or gets away with it. The credibility was lost because the Hirshes displayed poor judgment. While misjudging their own chances of success they had humiliated all the other people that they had involved. That is a cardinal sin. They never were to enjoy the same confidence again. Hirsh, as was becoming his habit, sacrificed a great deal to his vindictiveness. He was becoming his own worst enemy.

Hirsh was not one to learn from experience. Conscious of his loss of credibility which he now blamed on me, he now made two quickly and poorly conceived efforts to destroy my reputation, such as it was, and credibility, such as any enjoyed by orphans.

The far sides of the streets surrounding the Orphanage were lined with rows of fine mature maple trees. The branches spread over the streets and yards. There were a number of men, homosexuals and perverts, who stood near the tree trunks in the shade hoping for a little short action. We were prime targets. Deprived of love, denied respect, both sexes were susceptible to minor blandishments. My mother had always advised me not to talk to strangers so I always walked by them like they were not there.

Hirsh had determined to influence the direction of my future life. As the twig is bent, so the tree inclines, he said. So he got two social rejects, men who had made a life of doing dirty deeds dirt cheap in order to be associated in any capacity with the successful rich, to wait for me along the back fence. On that day I happened to be walking back from school with Richard Grainger. They mistook Richard for me.

One said to Richard: ‘Hey, you little bastard. Youi know where you’re going? You’re going to be a criminal and die in the electric chair. You’re a thief. God hates you and you are going to spend your life in prison.’

We were young and small, at the impressionable age for imprinting. Richard was terrified and took the man’s curse literally. I had watched. Now forming my opinion I began to curse them as old bums and failures. Just as I had begun the other man realized their error and said: ‘Uh, oh, I think you nailed the wrong one.’ They had. They had also destroyed Richard’s life for he believed them, took their suggestion in, and fulfilled their prophecy.

Hirsh had failed again. He tried once more. The fall and winter had passed. Spring burst out once again. Hirsh had learned my habits. In those days before super markets and convenience stores there was an old dilapidated rundown little grocery store every few blocks. There was one two blocks from the Orphanage. We used to take our money gained from the deposits of beer bottles and whatever there to buy candy.

There, one Saturday, I found Michael Hirsh and thee of his friends waiting for me. I asked Hirsh why he was out slumming. Badinage passed between us. I went into the store to buy some candy. I was followed by Hirsh and his friends. They jostled around me while I paid. I elbowed back. Taking my candy I left the store followed by the Hirsh gang. Outside they gathered around me. But Hirsh reaching into my back pocket pulled out a candy bar and said: ‘Hey, Gresham, what’s this?’ He had placed a candy bar in my back pocket while jostling me in the store. In later years he would have been astute enough not to have taken it out of my pocket himself. He was young and inexperienced.

I said, ‘Looks like a Butterfinger.’

‘Yeah? Did you pay for this? Looks like you’re a thief, doesn’t it Gresham?’

‘That candy bar’s not in my hand, Hirsh. It’s in yours. Looks like you’re the thief.’ The grocer, seeing the candy bar in my back pocket as I left had come to the door.

‘Hey, mister,’ I said, ‘Michael Hirsh here stole this candy bar from you. Better make him pay for it. He’s got lots of money.’

Hoisted by his own petard again, Hirsh turned shamefaced, threw the candy bar down and he and his friends stalked off. His witnesses witnessed against him and Hirsh forfeited his hoped for role of a leader forever. The Hirshes would never learn.

What might have happened next remains unknown. I turned ten. At ten we were farmed out to foster parents. The Wardens took me way to the other side of town.

The Hirshes had been instrumental in the formation of my personality. My character was beyond their reach.

My dream had revealed the controlling fixation of my life. In the process my personality had completely disintegrated. The personality that had sustained me in place of my dead self was gone. I stood exposed and naked to the world while I groped to re-integrate my personality. It was a long row to hoe before my subconscious released the past to free me by a dream.

A Review:

David Amram’s Vibrations and Offbeat

by

R.E. Prindle

 

Amram, David: Downbeat: Thunder’s Mouth Press, 2002

Amram, David: Vibrations, original MacMillan’s 1968, this issue Thunder’s Mouth Press 2001

Wakefield, Dan: New York In The Fifties, Houghton, Mifflin/Seymour Lawrence, 1992

 

While apparently but few have ever heard of David Amram yet he was a significant figure in the Sixties and beyond. He was or is a musician, French Horn player and composer. A couple of his movie soundtrack credits, The Manchurian Candidate and Splendor In The Grass of the Fifties give some indication of his recognition in the entertainment world although having seen both movies I had no idea he scored them while Imdb gives credit to Amram and Irving Berlin and Grass to a Euphemia Allen. So there you have it.

No one to whom I have mentioned him has ever heard of him. As I was in the record business in the Sixties and Seventies I knew the name but nothing more. I don’t recollect selling any of his records or even carrying them. I called his name up on Amazon’s Echo or Alexa and listened to a couple hours of stuff a couple of times and while the music is pleasant enough I find it undistinguished.

My attention for this review was brought to me because his book Offbeat is a record of his association with Jack Kerouac the author and founder of the Beats. I will deal with the association in the appropriate place. Vibrations, David’s first book, is a discussion of his life from birth in 1930 to his thirty seventh year in 1967, the book was published in 1968. Vibrations is a very interesting psychological study whether the reader has heard of Amram or not.   As of this writing (8/2/17) he is still living at 87 years and looking very presentable. Significantly he doesn’t call Vibrations an autobiography but a memoir.

David was born in Feasterville, Pennsylvania, where he spent his early years on a farm until his father took a war job and moved the family to Washington DC in 1942, the move was very traumatic for twelve-year old David who loved his life on the farm and never recovered from losing it. Later in life he would buy a farm.

The move to DC was especially traumatic because his family moved into a house in what was called a checkerboard neighborhood, that is a mixed Negro and White area. David and his family were themselves Jewish. The central childhood fixation that governed David’s life was when he entered Gordon Jr. High. He describes the experience in detail and since it is so important to the telling of his story I will quote in full, pp. 17-18:

A few days later I entered Gordon Junior High School. Because I had just come from a small rural school, Gordon Junior High seemed enormous. The playground alone was larger than the entire school area in the country. The atmosphere was completely different because of the large number of students, the fact that it was a southern school and the air of seething violence that seemed to be everywhere. The atmosphere of violence was constant and when it erupted the teachers as well as the students seemed to take the idea of fighting for granted.

The moment I arrived I saw three or four serious fights in the school playground.

Six or seven boys were holding someone’s arms behind him while he was being smashed and stomped by two or three others. I was used to being in fights myself, but at least we used to go at it one at a time and when I got to be a good fighter myself, the fights finally stopped. But I noticed that here the parents of some of the smaller kids led them right into school or they came in with older kids who served as protection. It took me a little while to realize there were several organized gangs in the school, including one called the Foggybottom Gang. My sister was going to boarding school in Florida because of her health. I was sure glad she didn’t have to through this with me. When we had gone to school in the country she used to lie down on the floor of the car on the way home so the kids wouldn’t see her. She was terrified then because of the abuse I used to take being called a Jew. I had gotten used to it, but she never could.

But there at least she was safe on the floor of the car. In 1942 at Gordon Junior High no one was safe. Even teachers- those who couldn’t fight back- were in danger of being punched pummeled kicked or even knifed. It was a madhouse and I enjoyed every minute of it. I had never liked school anyway except for music and sports, so the chaotic conditions in the classroom, with kids yelling and insulting the teachers, setting their desks on fire, throwing snowballs with razors and rocks inside, fighting and even one student being pushed out the window- it all seemed wonderful and exciting to me. By the third day I felt at home. The classes were so backward that in about thirty minutes I could do all my homework and spend the rest of the afternoon practicing the piano or playing in the back with Walter and some other kids I met.

The fifth day in school I was coming from the science class when a boy named Joe punched me on the shoulder and almost knocked me down.

“Watch that, Joe.” I said.

He seemed surprised that I knew his name. “How do you know my name?” he said.

Suddenly the casual group behind him seemed to become an organized gang standing stiff and hostile. All the kids behind me also stopped and in a few seconds later the immediate rumble was inevitable.

“Never mind how I know your name, just watch who you’re pushing,” I said. With that he threw a right at me. Because I was expecting something like this, I slipped his punch. Next he hit me in the left shoulder, spinning me half around. Then he leaped for me and I caught him with my right elbow in the stomach, hit him three or four times in the face put my leg behind him, hit him on the Adam’s apple and knocked him backward into a locker. He didn’t feel like fighting anymore.

Then all of a sudden, one of the larger teachers materialized out of nowhere, hit me in the face and knocked me down. He then proceeded to knock four or five other students as well while everyone else scattered. I was stunned. Kids who hadn’t even had anything to do with the fight were lying on the floor, wondering what had happened. He pulled up and marched us up to the principal’s office. While we were waiting for the principal to come out, another teacher was rushing down the hall, yelling for the teacher to get to another class where a serious fight was going on. He left and by the time the principal came back, Joe and some of the other students had slipped out of the office leaving just one other boy and myself. The principal was a kindly old man in his seventies and obviously was nearly ready to retire. His name was Mr. Winston, a sweet old man with white hair, a white mustache, stooped and worn out by all the years in Washington’s public school system and very upset about the chaos that had developed since the war began and the younger teachers were all away.

“Boys,” he said in a genteel southern moan, “The good Lord didn’t put you on earth to act like animals. Fighting is for an animal, not for gentlemen. I want you two boys to shake hands and promise never to fight no more.”

“But I wasn’t even fighting,” said the other poor boy, about to break into tears.

“Don’t sass me son, I don’t even want your name. Just don’t let me see you in here again with fights. I don’t know what’s happened to the school and to young people today. In my day people would fight each other fair and square, out behind the schoolhouse. It’s just with the fathers away, there doesn’t seem to be any discipline.” He looked through his thick glasses at both of us almost expecting us to sympathize with him. “All right, boys,” he said wearily, “you all go back to your classes and don’t let me see you in here again.”

We got up and left and went back to our classes. After a hysterical Latin class, during which the teacher, a kindly woman in her fifties with an incredible case of dandruff, was shouted down and almost knocked to the floor by one of the students, I left in disgust. I knew you weren’t going to learn anything that way. Outside I saw Joe and the members of the Foggy Bottom Gang waiting. I noticed that two of them had knives, which I could see glinting in the sun. They were not switchblades but the kind of knife used for shucking oysters in Chesapeake Bay, easy to hide in your pants and very sharp. I had heard of several stabbings the year before, and I didn’t want to be the first victim of the new academic year, so I went out the back way through the boiler room and walked home.

And David says he loved that and was right at home. Apart from pretty spectacular total recall the story sets out the problem of Black and White relations from then on. Of course the effect of this incredible first week at school was very traumatic for David fixating him it would seem with a variation of the Stockholm syndrome. Nor was this an isolated incident but the ‘normal’ situation that would go on for years, his entire youth, in David’s checkerboard neighborhood.   While seeming to maintain a rigid separation between his Black and White identities as well as White and Jewish identities his primary identity seemed to be White during this period while he sank into a medium grade depression. He immersed his mind in music to escape his desperate situation and his music the rather odd combination of French Horn and Negro Jazz. Probably the French Horn was a desperate clinging to his White identity.

But, first let us put his situation into a perspective that must lead to the Supreme Court decision of Brown vs. The Board Of Education. The Brown decision assumed that schools were not segregated and that there was no experience to indicate what the result of integration would be. Yet, here in DC in the forties and probably the thirties one has a sociological situation that indicates precisely what the result would be. There was no need for guesswork.

The Supreme Court justices who would make the Brown decision had integration information on the residential level that was horrendous. Eventually all the White people would leave DC or were driven out by the Negroes and DC became something of a cauldron of crime. One in which even Negroes were desperate to escape.

The schools were such that, as in Amram’s case he was terrorized for life but the White fantasy was that no resistance by Whites should be offered to the atrocities. Now, this was not just young Negroes mixed with young Whites. In high schools grown men were entered as students who then directed the young Negroes in terrorizing the Whites to gain control and dominance. Thus,. Whites were taught or required to accept the criminal behavior quietly or they would be charged with the horrendous crime of ‘racism’. If they fought back win or lose they would be charged as the aggressors and have their young lives destroyed, sacrificed on the altar of integration. The saying then and now was ‘you have to break a few eggs to make an omelet. Interestingly David has a song with the refrain, ‘all my eggs are broken.’

Any rational White person could see and understand the result of forced integration. Whites were being denied equality and their rights, essentially enslaved to the Negroes. The Whites of the South against whom the Brown decision was actually directed with their long experience with the Negro were clear as to the outcome. If nothing else they had this sociological experiment in DC before their eyes as well as the deplorable conditions in Northern schools which were already integrated. It was quite obvious that integration would lead to disintegration of society so it must be obvious that the intent of the Supreme Court justices was the disintegration of society.

The Southern Whites therefore put up a stout resistance refusing to accept the Justices’ decision which, after all, was merely the Justices’ intention. It would take the Executive to enforce the decision. This led then President Eisenhower to his decision to mobilize army troops and if tanks were not used my memory projected them on the scene. These were regular Army bearing arms to conduct a Negro Student into Little Rock’s Central High School.

Of course, the propaganda value of a switchblade bearing six foot four, two hundred pound Negro giant being led by an army squad into the high school was nil. Not being totally ignorant of propaganda effects, as their model student they chose a petite little girl in a pink pinafore and pigtails to be escorted by appropriately huge soldiers bearing arms. Resistance at that point was futile and Little Rock’s Central High was turned into the same hell hole that David Amram experienced at DC’s Gordon Jr. High. Rape and turmoil.

In today’s schools, one doesn’t see too many petite Negro girls wearing pink pinafores with their hair in pigtails. The propaganda effect of Eisenhower’s action was that the US government valued Negroes over Whites and that has been proven in the sequel. No integrated school today is an educational institution. Today, however, as well as knives, guns are much in use, so students pass metal detectors on the way to classes. Was Brown an improvement in race relations? As the current situation was predictable it must have been according to plan.

David Amram endured this torture all through Jr. High and High School. He must have needed some escape and he found it in his music allowing him to retreat into the safety of his own mind. Trapped in a Negro culture the music given him to express himself was Negro jazz. However the instrument he chose was the French Horn which is not a jazz instrument. He might have done better to have chosen the saxophone or trumpet if he had really chosen to excel as a jazz musician. Rather the French Horn was his rather obvious connection to his White heritage. He carried it around with him like a child and his security blanket.

Perhaps in an effort to gain some security he sought the company of Negro musicians who accepted him and his French Horn although they usually remarked: ‘Hmm, a French Horn, you don’t see those much in jazz bands.’ I never have. David must have been a semi-comical figure on the band stand. ‘Who’s the dude with the French Horn?’ Thus he had a presence in the DC area.   I presume he graduated high school although he says that what with the constant chaos in class the academic standards weren’t too demanding. Sufficient to say he attained a degree of competence on his symbolic French Horn.

I suspect that he was a mental wreck by his late teen years. The military draft had not been discontinued after the war so the probable necessity of serving in the military loomed before him. He solved this problem by volunteering just as the Korean War burst upon the scene.

Following so quickly on the heels of the Second World War the Korean War, referred to as a ‘police action’ had a psychologically disturbing effect on society especially just after the Soviet Union exploded their own atomic bomb in 1949, relying heavily on US spies. The idea that Americans would betray the country to Russians was very traumatic, causing a lot of self-doubt. It shook the country to its foundations.

-II-

David was fifteen when WWII ended and he probably graduated high school in 1948. The Korean War began in June of 1950. The military draft was still in effect so rather than wait to be called up David volunteered for a two year tour of duty in the Army. Joining the Army also got him out of DC a movthat might have been more difficult otherwise. For the first time since Jr. High, then, he was removed from a Negro environment. The military at the time was averse to social experiments so there were few Negroes in the Army. The Army, of course, had had Negro regiments since the Civil War but they had White officers and were not integrated otherwise. The Navy had never had Negro sailors except for Stewards and other service personnel and would evade integration until 1957.

While his memoir balances David’s Negro, Caucasian and Jewish heritages it must have been true that the Negro characteristics of his heritage dominated his personality at the time. He was clearly a hipster and may have been what Norman Mailer called a White Negro. Certainly his speech must have been heavily Negro and hipster, or cat, to use an alternate term.

At any rate with his trusty French Horn tucked under his arm he began his military experience. As luck would have it he was not sent to Korea but to the other side of the world to monitor the Germans and keep the Soviets on their side of the Iron Curtain. The fear of an invasion of Europe by the Soviets kept people on edge along with the A-bomb.

Psychologically his Army service must have been a healing period for David’s mind even if the military experience is nearly as traumatic as David’s DC Negroland life. But, the Army would probably have been less dangerous to navigate. And then, at twenty he was older and more able to deal with things.

To compare my own experience of a very difficult childhood that left me with certain psychological impairments and my military experience following immediately after high school graduation I was removed from the scene of my youthful pressures, and, even though under the stresses of the military, my mind began healing as soon as I left the scene of their creation so about eight months on the worst psychological effects lifted much to my relief. I’m sure that happened to David also because like me he spent the next decade or so in the process of realizing not only his White heritage but even more deeply his Jewish heritage. At this period he became a Jew. Indeed, his memoir that carries his life only up to the age of 37 was a record of that journey of realization.

David’s descriptions of his states of mind and person are presented only incidentally. There are no detached descriptions and no analysis. So looking through his narrative one sees a beat up hommey running very nearly on auto-pilot, unkempt, close to dirty, making his way through the army. His trusty French Horn removes him from the more onerous aspects of army life into a twilight zone of musical misfits forming the Seventh Army Band.

As David describes the band they are one subversive lot, refusing to wear their uniforms properly while evading all other regulations to the best of their ability. It should be noted that most were draftees and not regular Army. There was always conflict between those coerced to serve and the regulars who chose military service as their vocation, so his group wasn’t too far out of line. David describes how he grew his hair as long as possible carefully stuffing it under his hat. I know where that’s at. I too was I wouldn’t say rebellious, bur resentful, not only of the Navy but of life, I too grew my hair as long as possible and stuffed it under my hat.

I hadn’t his congenial atmosphere but I’m sure that being in with these musicians eased his two years which in different circumstances might have been disastrous. With a better frame of mind his tour of duty would have been delightful as the band toured Europe giving concerts thereby living the high life compared to foot troops.

Somewhat rescued from himself David was discharged into the world in 1953 having contributed his two years to the destiny of America. However he was still an ill man suffering the after effects of Washington DC. Consequently unable to face returning to that future he chose not to return to the United States taking up residency in Paris instead.

He was still a beat up hommey hence he chose the Bohemian way of life. While he wallowed in his misery his intention was still to reclaim the Feasterville life he enjoyed before his disastrous removal to DC. Thus, after gathering his psychological bearings to some extent he returned to the US landing in NYC in 1955. Having no desire to return to the horrific memories of DC he found his way to Greenwich Village and the Boho way of life.

-III-

From 1955 when David Amram returned to the US from Europe to 1966 when he climbed the mountain of respectability to become the resident composer of the New York Philharmonic was a short eleven years, only a decade. For the major part of those years David was a dirty, ragged Bohemian who most frequently offended his friends by his appearance and the rat holes he lived in, by his own admission. His depression must have been fairly deep yet he avoided drugs in a druggy atmosphere, stayed fairly sober and worked like the devil.

He had been advised that composing music would be his deliverance rather than his horn playing. Indeed, while David assures us that he was a superior horn player a professional shows up, befriends him, and gives him lessons on horn playing to correct his defects. Regardless then of David’s self-evaluation capable horn players thought he needed help. Composing was to be his meal ticket.

Now, let us concentrate on the subject of Amram’s second book, Offbeat, concerning his relationship with the writer Jack Kerouac. I’m sure that most people will recognize Kerouac as the author of the Beat bible, On The Road. Perhaps some of those know that Kerouac wrote reams of material throughout a couple dozen books. Critics at the time castigated the writer as close to worthless. I have to agree with them although I have to say that Kerouac is one of the all time greatest word slingers. The words slip mellifluously from his pen but with small content. His books are the equivalent of well produced B movies. For me they always leave a bad taste. I mean, he wrote about bums.

Kerouac had a difficult time getting On The Road published. Indeed from the time he wrote the book to its publication he wrote ten other unpublished books and he didn’t stop there. I was probably among the first to read On The Road. The Beats, of which Kerouac is considered the originator, were considered to be revolutionary, but as unsavory types they succeeded indirectly. Revolution was in the air in the Fifties through the Sixties and it permeated my time in the US Navy just before the beginning of 1957 through 1959.

My ship was leaving for a Pacific tour of duty at the end of the summer of 1957. Just before we shoved off, this is true, a sailor on the dock passed a blue bound advance copy to our Communist Yeoman telling him this was an important book for the revolution. I missed what was revolutionary about it reading only about a bunch of footloose losers. It was talked about aboard ship however and it changed attitudes.

Subsequently the book became a bible of sorts for a certain type of guy. I could never understand why but it was a major influence on their attitude toward life.

So, Offbeat is a three hundred page book about Jack and David’s relationship. David met him in 1956 just as the Beat movement was about to surface nationwide. According to David in Offbeat their relationship was intense; at times one can almost believe that they were married. David says that he wrote the book at the insistence of a friend who thought Dave’s experiences were too valuable to go unrecorded. However, in Dave’s six hundred page memoir Vibrations Kerouac gets only a couple mentions with no indication of an involved relationship, not even a hint of Kerouac’s significance. Where the truth lies, from my reading is indeterminate. Nonetheless certain indisputable facts are recorded.

In 1959 Kerouac wrote the script for a movie titled Pull My Daisy. A short film of twenty minutes. David was asked to score the film. His accounts between Downbeat and Vibrations vary wildly. In Downbeat he says Jack asked him to score it; in Vibrations he says Leslie and Frank did. I would imagine most people have not heard of the movie, Pull My Daisy. David makes it sound like a major cultural event. I have watched part of it. I left off maybe halfway through. David who is a real booster of anything his friends did thought it was terrific.

For those immersed in the Beat period it may be of interest to see their heroes in action. Ginsberg, Corso, Amram, they’re all there in their beatnik glory. For my tastes they looked like a bunch of bums goofing around a dump of a house. In Variations David gives credit for the film to the artist Alfred Leslie and the filmmaker Robert Frank. Leslie was an artist, apparently of some renown, I have to confess I have never heard of him, he has a couple of published collections, while Robert Frank has a reputation as an early ‘experimental’ filmmaker. Having become somewhat familiar with various experimental films I find them more self-indulgent than impressive.

In Offbeat David characterizes the performance as improvisational to the nth degree, the actors cutting up in totally undisciplined disarray. In Variations he portrays the filming as carefully planned by Leslie and Frank. Indeed Leslie ‘revealed’ in 1968 that while the production was thought to be improvisational it was actually carefully plotted. You’d have to read the sources to make up your own mind. Offbeat seems the most reasonable approach to me.

It is a silent film with no dialogue but Kerouac does a voice over completely improvised according to David while David improvises the musical background as Kerouac speaks. He says Kerouac and he were satisfied with the result while Leslie and Frank wished to make several takes to get the best possible results. Kerouac and Amram who value extemporaneity more than a hoped for perfection demur but agree to one more take and then refuse any further effort.

In Variations David says the he reworked his music separately seeking perfection corroborating Leslie’s 1968 revelation. There does seem to be a clash of ideals that reduces the integrity of David’s two texts while casting doubt on the veracity of his memories.

Dan Wakefield in his 1992 memoir, New York In The Fifties makes mention of Amram, usually positive and even admiring, as a spreader of sunshine so I suspect David of speaking well, putting things in their best light for the occasion rather than strict accuracy. This is nowhere more evident than in his account of poetry readings. He credits Kerouac and himself as introducing musically accompanied readings to Bohemia in New York. This is probably true as Kerouac and Ginsberg had been doing the same in San Francisco. I think he gives too much credit also to the quality of the poets and their poetry. I attended a coupe readings in North Beach, San Francisco and came away singularly unimpressed with the poetry although the social scene was nice.

For some delightful accounts of poetry reading in the New York of the Sixties Ed Sanders of the Fugs has wonderful accounts in his Tales Of Beatnik Glory. There are also some filmed readings on the internet, but without the ambience of being in the audience it’s not the same thing.

While David is great for waxing enthusiastic about his relationship with his horn he fades away on the historical background of his activities. For instance, he mentions the jazz bar the Five Spot as being important but fails to give context. Dan Wakefield on the other hand found the Five Spot so significant that he goes into great detail even providing some information on its ambiance. In fact, those places, jazz clubs, were holes requiring a great deal of enthusiasm for jazz to endure the environment.

I never visited any NYC jazz clubs during the day but I did pay a visit to the Blackhawk in San Francisco. The Blackhawk was one of the premier jazz clubs in the country. Let me say from the outset that I am not a jazz buff. The depression, pain and rage that underlies the music is offensive to my tastes, especially the classic jazz of the Fifties. The Negro artists of the Fifties were sui generis. As they aged they were never replaced although that fact seems to have gone unnoticed. Jazz began withering during the Sixties, was commercialized in the seventies and eighties and what remains is probably formulaic today.

The mystique of the Negro players was incredible. If the Blackhawk was any indication the club was a church for jazzists and the players were its high priests. Essentially they could get away with anything in those dark nasty hypnotic caves. The Negro artists were themselves worshipped by the Whites. Dan Wakefield tells the following story of one of the highest of the priesthood Charlie Mingus, p. 309:Mingus was a figure all right, and could be as dramatic and surprising off stage as on. The novelist and screenwriter Rudy Wurlitzer will never forget the time he took a beautiful girl to the Five Spot when he was nineteen years old. “I wanted to impress her,” he says. “Mingus was playing, and I could tell he noticed the girl- everyone noticed her. When the last set was over, Mingus came up to our table and took out a pair of handcuffs. He didn’t say a word, just clamped one of the handcuffs on his own wrist and then clamped the other on the wrist of my date. She didn’t say anything, and he pulled up her arm, so she stood up, and then they walked out the door together, neither of them saying anything.”

Of course, the important thing here is that Wurlitzer made no protest, he acquiesced in her abduction although he was responsible for her safety. No one else in the jazz church said anything either. The high priest had his prerogatives. That and the mystique accorded to the Magic Negro.

Indeed, Amram, Wakefield and others were all working hard for the integration of the bands themselves, perhaps thinking that was a panacea for something. Wakefield himself, accounts the advent of the Beatles in 1964 as the disruption of the integration dream and perhaps the beginning of the end for jazz. Certainly, the musical priesthood was transferred from Negroes to Whites when the Beatles became the high priests. As Wakefield complains, the Beatles and the bands following from England were all White. So, while there were a few exceptions in Rock- Jimi Hendrix- that jazz dream was destroyed. It should be noticed that there is a Hendrix church. Negro energy was transferred to the all Black soul bands of the Sixties led by Detroit’s Motown label.

According to Wakefield the Lit., Music and Art crowds of Greenwich Village were separate, the artists favoring the Cedar Tavern, the Literature crowd the White Horse Tavern and the music crowd the Village Vanguard and other spots. The Folk crowd was not prominent in Wakefield’s mind during the Fifties for some reason. They were certainly there. Wakefield says that while most crowds stuck to respective groups Amram was a curiosity as he moved freely through all groups with a reputation as Mr. Sunshine.

Indeed, he was something of a touch giving small sums of money to anyone who asked for it. He complains about being broke while at the same time he says that he gave his money away, living in digs few would tolerate. If his sweater, of which he speaks so lovingly, hadn’t been so raggedy, worn and smelly he would have given that off his back to anyone willing to take it. A real St. Francis. He must, then, have had many acquaintances who would speak well of him in place of returning the loans.

In addition to pushing for integrated bands and racial harmony David rediscovered his own racial roots in Judaism. A synagogue beneath his window whose religious music rose through it awakened his interest through its mournful dirge answering to his own depression as jazz did. Consequently David offered to compose sacred music for the services, which music was well received. Thus his ties to Judaism were revived.

As a composer he composed furiously, able to turn out reams and reams of compositions. Now, the Fifties, they were not a dull time unless, of course, you were dull, although my own familiarity with the later years was disrupted by entering the Navy, losing contact with those critical years for the future; I was in exile, as it were, in the military. Nevertheless, so-called world music began after WWII in the nascent Folk music scene by the group called the Weavers led by the ever present Pete Seeger. Wakefield seems to have ignored the Folkies but Folk was very largely White as well as Rock music and the two actually coalesced in the Sixties.

After the War it seems like there were hundreds of songs celebrating the charms of far away places with strange sounding names. Martin Denny’s LP The Quiet Village was a whole album of songs celebrating exotic tropical paradises.

At this time also Electra Records began a series of LPs of ethnic musics that was very in with the knowing, the avant guard. On its Nonesuch label Electra issued two terrific albums of Balinese Gamelon music including the memorable Ramayana Monkey Chant, a real listening experience. A Bulgarian record was much revered and well as several others. The African record Missa Luba is a not to be missed classic. That’s only if you are of the ilk otherwise you won’t appreciate such discs

So, David was a leader of this Travel Poster Crowd. Travel posters of far away place were de riguer on everyone’s walls especially after the Boeing 707 changed international travel in 1959. David Amram was riding the wave of a future on that score even though jazz was emitting a dying moan. By the seventies these Fifties jazz artists were so passe that a record producer by the name of Creed Taylor fashioned a line of easy listening records employing various of these old passe Negro players with reputations as a front to legitimize his easy listening and he made a fortune. There’s gold out there you just have to know where to find it. It was the end of an era.

David then had conquered all musical worlds except for the White world of classical music. As I see it he had made a million friends with his zippity doo dah attitude expecially and most importantly in the Jewish religious world.

The background story here is unknown or, at least, undiscovered by me. The New York Philharmonic had never had a resident composer but in 1966 the position was created for David. David was appreciative and by his account overwhelmed and well he might be. There appears to have been a great gulf between what he was doing and the professional world of the New York Philharmonic of Leonard Bernstein.

The impression one gets is that the Philharmonic gave into pressure from somewhere to create a respectable paying position for Dave. In doing so, of course, they enabled him to rise from his declassed state caused by his entrance into DC’s Gordon Jr. High. He now became a man of all classes and was enabled to regain his lost self-respect. He probably would never fit in to the over world because of the underclass characteristics he had acquired in his long and traumatic exile among the subteranneans.

If I had to guess as to how he was offered his newly created position I think it would be his association with the rabbis and his sacred compositions for them. The upper music world of New York is almost all Jewish. Leonard Bernstein himself, then the conductor of the Philharmonic, was himself Jewish and subject to pressure from the rabbis. I’m guessing it was all in the synagogue, but David realized his goal and immediately commemorated it in his memoir. David was only thirty-seven, living today at 87 his life wasn’t even half over.

-IV-

Up to 1967 David’s is an American story. A collection of racial, ethnic and religious heritages to be reconciled: in his case White American, Jew and Negro. The conflation of all three could have destroyed David’s life but he had what it took to blast through to salvation. Salvation to at least 1967, the sequel remains to be seen. David continues his story in a 2008 book he titles Upbeat: Nine Lives Of A Musical Cat. I have yet to read that but I may report on it when I do.

David grew up under a Melting Pot hope of immigration. Under that fantasy the immigrants would gradually assimilate themselves to Anglo-American mores, forget their antecedents and then the US would be a great big harmonious happy family Anglo Saxon family because Anglo-Saxons had discovered he secret of governing. One fault to that theory was that Negroes weren’t immigrants and the Melting Pot theory didn’t include the Negro race. No matter what happened the Negro problem would be insoluble.

The theory also broke down because some immigrant groups wished to impose their mores on the Anglo-Saxons rather than those of the Anglo-Saxons on them. Chief among those were those of David’s Jewish heritage. As it was their intention to impose their mores made it necessary to dissolve the Melting Pot into its constituent parts and then reassemble them under the Jewish aegis. Thus for several years after 1945 it became a custom to have various national festivals in which people dressed in their national dress and did a couple dances. That didn’t last too long because under American conditions it was humiliating; we were supposed to be one and for most other national customs really had no place. The time for that sort of celebration had passed.

David’s Negro heritage was a more convenient lever for disintegration as well as his Jewish heritage itself. Lest we have confusion let me say I share David’s three heritages, as do all Americans whether they realize it or not, plus a heritage of the orphanage and several lesser ones, most notable Polish an English but I consider myself American First, White second and devil take the hindmost. But, we all, because of immigration, share in each and every heritage. The Jews, the Negroes and whoever have given up any exclusivity to their heritage, like it or not.

As there was tremendous White guilt over slavery this was cultivated as the Negro question and was a great tool as witness the White girl Mingus abducted for sexual purposes no doubt and neither she nor her boyfriend nor anyone objected. No other race or nationality could have pulled that off. It is significant that Mingus knew he could. No one has to excuse his conduct because he was Black and objecting would make one a racist. Absolute nonsense. Injustice wherever it is found should be resisted.

It is also indicative of how society had disintegrated when David as a Jew, within the synagogue if I’m correct, had the job of resident composer created just for him.

America rather than being a Melting Pot was being created as diverse before our eyes consolidating under a Jewish aegis.

In order to do that it is necessary to destroy the symbols of power of the dominant culture. Thus, the well documented War on Christmas, reducing it from a national custom to a parochial one, depriving Anglo-Saxon of the notion that America is Christian. This, even though the Jews are only two percent of the population. In the last couple of years any symbol ‘offensive’ to a non-White culture such as statues, trademarks etc. are being forcibly removed by sub-cultures. Not only the Confederate flag but the US flag itself is under assault. The law, the Supreme Court Justices, enforces minority rights against the majority. Since the election of Trump resistance to these encroachments has become permissible but not legal.

The problem is not that sub-cultures want their own monuments that exist along side traditional monuments, names, titles, whatever but that the dominant culture and its monuments shall be replaced by the minority cultures and monuments.

Rather than follow that line of reasoning for the time being I think I will break off here and continue when I have read Amram’s Upbeat, see how the nine lives have worked out.

The Myth Of The Twenty-First Century

Red Octopus vs. The Nazi Hydra

Boring From Within

by

R.E. Prindle

The whole contest between the Red Octopus and The Nazi Hydra was framed on race. The myth was that the evil White Man through no special talent of his own had seized the wealth of the world and subjected the colored peoples from who he stole. Hence the White Man must be made to pay. Pay with his life.

Thus all the colored peoples of the world are arrayed against the evil White Man. IN the US the Democratic Liberal Party is home to the colored peoples and the sanctimonious White Liberal. The next step in the myth was the White Man as the oppressor of Homosexuals and White Women. The motto of the Octopus is Whiteness must disappear from the earth before justice can reign. The plan of action is: Hey, hey, ho, ho, Western Civilization has got to go.

The myth of the Devil White Man began to form in the wake of WWI and the revolutions and skirmishes that continued for several years. WWII put paid to White Supremacy. The Liberal Coalition that contained only a small minority of White men, and those mostly homosexual, began to organize and as a first attack selected the university system of the US.

Red Octopus 3

The Red Octopus , regardless of their enormous crimes against humanity always considered themselves the virtuous Party. The atrocities of two world wars cooled their ardor for violent action. They chose to bore from within. Always a tactic from WWI and before it now became more active. The first all out assault was the so-called Free Speech Movement at the University of California at Berkeley. The Free Speech Movement was the first Occupy assault. A small faction of revolutionaries managed to shut the University down by occupying Halls and preventing the school from functioning.

The action was called the Free Speech Movement because Free Speech in America is a prime virtue. Thus the slogan or name made the assault defensible as a virtuous action. Of course, within the Red Octopus free speech had no place. One either hewed to the Party line or were disciplined or worse.

The Berkeley assault was entirely successful and free speech disappeared on campus. The Movement soon spread across the country, Columbia University of New York being the prime example but the whole Ivy League succumbed immediately. Moving from Free Speech to race the lack of Negroes attending universities was then included in the list of grievances. Race is another virtue thus reinforcing the impregnable virtue of the Movement.

The remarkable thing about the Movement was the complete surrender of college presidents and faculties. It therefore follows that the college administrations were complicit; they were sleeper agents already in place. The first capitulations set the tone for all that followed. Of course having arrogated virtue to themselves any opposition therefore was vile, and being vile anyone holding other views was discreditable. They automatically became racists, anti-Semites, opposed to Blacks and Browns.

Soon they began to lose their jobs often for something they may have said in private or may have said or only reported to have said decades before. To be accused was to be found guilty; no proof was needed.

Once the universities were captured and cleansed and the curriculums appropriated all else followed.

By the 2016 presidential election the stage for the coup to what was euphemistically called the one party system was set. The Red Octopus would be triumphant.

However the Hydra becoming alarmed managed to put forward an able candidate in Donald Trump who moved to disestablish the Octopus and put in place a Hydra agenda.

The stage has now been set for the Clash of the Titans: a global contest for supremacy between the Red Octopus and the Hydra.

A Review

Tough Jews by Rich Cohen

By

R.E. Prindle

We’re trying to get America by the wallet.

Abe ‘Kid Twist’ Reles

 

Cohen, Rich: Tough Jews, Fathers, Sons and Gangster Dreams, Vintage, 1999.

Rich CohenRich Cohen

 

Our author, Rich Cohen seems to be oppressed by the vision of Jews marching obediently to the death camps in war torn Europe. He is ashamed that Jews didn’t organize and resist the Nazis. Actually those that could did. The Warsaw Ghetto being the most famous example. Of course having no infra structure to support them that resistance, while commendable, was futile. This reaction within Nazi lines was not the same as that by Jews beyond those lines. US Jews campaigned mightily with the full assistance of President Roosevelt to get our men to fight their war for them and succeeded. Jews fought in the Russian army where there was a supporting infra structure. It is also true that the political Commissars attached to the Russian army were nearly all Jews. Their role as political Commissars in the conducting of the war was equal to or maybe even superior to that of the military generals. The Germans have incredible horror stories of the barbarities perpetrated by the Commissars that are equal in horror to anything that occurred in the death camps.

But few people are aware of the Jewish influence in the battle units. Rich Cohen apparently being one of them or he wouldn’t lament ‘weak’ Jews while trying to find heroes amongst a group of barbaric Jewish criminals who operated on about the same level of brutality as the Soviet Jewish Commissars.

Nor does Rich seem to be aware of the attitudes of Jewish-Russian criminals flooding into NYC just before and during the writing of his book. So, this review will roam about a bit in putting Tough Jews into perspective.

In his own way Rich Cohen has written a valuable piece of immigrant Americana. Brooklyn although a Jewish colony was and is a part of NYC and the US. The borough currently functions as the Jewish capital of the US and rivals the whole State of Israel itself. Because his father grew up in Brooklyn and was part of the Jewish underworld Rich is now a very privileged fellow. As Tough Jews was written when Rich was a mere thirty years old, currently turning fifty it is nicely turned out. His father left Brooklyn moving to the equally important underworld of Chicagoland, Illinois. From there Rich attended Tulane University of New Orleans then finding his way to the Big Bagel, NYC.

Arnold RothsteinArnold Rothstein

He had no trouble finding literary jobs with prestigious magazines such as the New Yorker and Vanity Fair, indeed, I am guessing, with the aid of his father’s connections.

His father grew up in Brooklyn with the future TV journalist Larry King so it is hardly surprising that Rich did a stint with the Larry King TV show.

On reading Rich’s book one is haunted by the feeling that, while ostensibly about a group of criminals hardly worth the eulogies Rich heaps on them, there is a deeper more pervading and significant interest. Indeed that interest would subsequently appear in his book, Israel Is Real: An Obsessive Quest To Understand the Jewish Nation and Its History. Obsessive and Nation are key words.

Indeed, Tough Jews might be considered a Volume I of that obsession. That obsession will color my review as I will range wider than a bunch of Neanderthal criminals and I mean no insult to the Neanderthals.

Tough Jews itself is a handsomely written book although one twinges at so many cuteisms that mar the writing, descents into purple prose, but picky complaints aside the book reads smoothly, smartly and coherently at a high level of interest, perhaps lagging a bit around the Abe ‘Kid Twist’ Reles denouement. But that complaint might also be a touch of envy.

Yet, he admires these creeps, these primitives, these brutal beastie boys. And what redeems them? They are Jews. Like himself, like Brooklyn. He excuses them because he confuses their unredeemable savagery with strength. Tough Jews. As he points out these are little fellows in the 5’ 0” to 5’ 2” range, as young men no more than 120 pounds. Any six footer could brush them aside. So what made them formidable? They were ready to not only kill, but mutilate, at the drop of a hat. And they did, often for silly reasons. It was wise to step back from them.

Of course, Rich believes the reason is that they are poor immigrant lads, immigrant Jews who have been brushed aside denied their place in the sun by bigotry. He believes that they couldn’t go to University because all the best schools had quotas, which is not quite true. Hence he believes this criminality lasted only one generation and then the Tribe went straight. Forget the Russian Jews of the 1990s who came in criminal and have nearly completed the task the early Jewish mob undertook. As Abe Reles is quoted as saying his mob wanted to get America by the wallet; in other words by controlling the money, control the society.

Things were not being done haphazardly. They were planned. And they were only a part of the plan. At this point of his life Rich may not have been able to piece things together but he does know the criminals he is describing. And they were tough Jews and as such role models for himself and apparently the Russian Jews who came later. Those Russian Jews had their own legends of how the Jews did things in New York in those early years. Called new Robber Barons by the New York press they apparently believed that they were emulating the industrialists who built the railroads, creating an astonishing steel industry and the oil business. But to mention thugs in the same breath as Ford or Carnegie is an unforgiveable sacrilege. Ford and Carnegie built things and created it, adding to stock. Criminals steal it and diminish wealth.

There are different ways of being tough and there was a small army of tougher Jews in finance, in the universities, in politics. Rich essentially picks up his story with the ascent of the arch criminal and master mind Arnold Rothstein. He was the criminal who masterminded the fixing of the 1919 World Series.

Lepke1Lepke Buchalter

Nineteen eighteen through nineteen twenty-seven, these were the crucial years of the takeover of Western Civilization. The really critical period was eighteen, nineteen and twenty when the West realized that the ‘Russian’ Revolution was a Jewish affair and that as the anonymous author of the celebrated book The Cause Of World Unrest put it Jews and the cause were synonymous.

In that asymmetrical war following the destruction of European manhood in the shooting war the Jews, united Jews of the world, fought to avoid defeat while at the same time establishing themselves as the dominant guiding role in Western Civilization. They had won primacy in Russia by the 1917 Soviet revolution. It would take them a few more years to consolidate their role in Europe.

Complete success was denied them by the resistance of Italy’s Fascism and Germany’s tremendous Volkist identity. Thus, in Germany it was Jewish nationalism vs. German nationalism. A virtual Civil War in which the only solution was the expulsion or extermination of the other. There is nothing surprising or unnatural in the so-called holocaust. It was inevitable just as the continuing asymmetrical war on Europeans by the Jewish survivors was only to be expected and prepared for.

The economic engine that made Jewish success possible was the plundered wealth of the Rothschilds in Europe and the equally plundered wealth of the US obtained by crime and misappropriation.

Nineteen-twenty provided the setting and the criminal streets of NYC the set. With the advent of the prohibition ‘experiment’ the wealth of the US was laid at the mob’s door. The wallet of the US that Abe Reles was talking about was deftly lifted by Jewish hands.

The engine driver for the early years was Arnold Rothstein, an especial hero of Rich’s, whose usefulness for the cause was gone by 1928 when he was taken out and replaced by Lepke Buchalter who was succeeded by Meyer Lansky after Buchalter was convicted and executed in 1942. Lansky was instrumental in the funding of the State of Israel using money collected by criminal means.

So, all these underworld figures were working hand in glove with the aboveworld figures. The international Jewish government required an enormous amount of money to function and most of these vast sums were obtained by exploiting the gentiles. The Jewish mob was not stealing to live; those enormous sums of money were being funneled into the Jewish World State. As well, Jewish charitable collections were put to political purposes.

Abe RelesAbe Reles

The aboveworld politicians were also out to get America by the wallet. In one of the most wonderful feats of history the Jews pushed through the Federal Reserve Act by which they secured control of US currency receiving interest on every dollar in circulation. What a bonanza. And it was a private corporation owned by nine Jewish banks of Europe and one of the US. The single non-Jewish owner was the Rockefeller combine. And it was a corporation independent of legislative and executive control. Hey, hey, hubba, hubba.

Going into WWI the Jews were advantageously placed monetarily in Western Civilization. The war consolidated their gains and even expanded their influence, without mentioning the elimination of the Czars, thus making the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics a Jewish country.

These astounding successes stirred up a reaction among the farseeing gentiles resulting in publications such as the celebrated The Cause Of World Unrest. This in turn brought out the Jewish Damage Control units that fought back by silencing each and every critic while destroying them economically and socially. The terrorist Anti-Defamation League was very effective at this.

Another of the aboveground threats, this one entirely criminal thus blurring the line between aboveworld and underworld methods was the theft of millions of dollars worth of Liberty Bonds directly from the New York Stock Exchange. The bonds would continue to surface in all kinds of places during the twenties. Not surprisingly Arnold Rothstein had an ample supply.

Of key importance here was the election of the rump of the old political post-Civil War establishment, the three Republican presidents, Harding, Coolidge and Hoover. These three were the last hurrah of the old American establishment. When Franklin Roosevelt succeeded Hoover in 1933 the new Jewish immigration dispensation began.

The years of Woodrow Wilson marked the first penetration of the US government by the Jews. Wilson as well as his Jews were socialists and with the end of the war they established a limited socialist government. They were prepared to go further had Cox and Roosevelt been elected in 1920. Harding’s victory derailed their plans for twelve years and the Jews disappeared from Washington for the interim.

Thus, while Jewish criminals infiltrated further at street level the economic situation in the US government was temporarily out of reach. However, even then the government had no control over the currency. To avoid ‘partisan’ interference the Federal Reserve had been placed beyond the political control of both the executive and legislative branches of government. The Act could have been challenged by the Supreme Court but with Brandeis on it that was not probable and in fact the question didn’t even arise.

Thus, at this critical juncture of the Stock Market crash of ’29 Hoover had had no way to monitor the Fed. The Fed was free to engineer the crash.

All of this did not pass unnoticed by alert Americans; however to point out Jewish machinations was to automatically label oneself an ‘anti-Semite’ and place oneself outside the pale of society. Not that there were not brave men and women. Chief of these citizens was the industrialist, perhaps the greatest American of the twentieth century or ever, Henry Ford.

Jewish historians, of course, portray Ford as an unredeemable bigot who woke one day and declared to himself: I am going to be the world’s #1 anti-Semite. The historians can find no other reason for Ford taking up a very expensive campaign to solve what he and a great many others considered to be the world’s #1 problem.   As Ford is central to the American side of the equation, it might be profitable to examine Jewish antecedents.

Without going back to the transition from the Age of Taurus to the Age of Aries when the Jews split off from the universal Astrological religion to create their own, let us look at the immediate cause of Jewish unrest. At about the turn of the nineteenth century expansionist Russia annexed what became the Pale of Settlement that included a major part of Poland. The area had been the refuge of the Jews; it contained the vast majority of Jews in the world.

Meyer LanskyMeyer Lansky

Under the Poles who had administered this territory the Jews had been a semi-autonomous people to whom Polish commercial affairs had been granted. Autonomy, political equality as a separate people with the host country had always been the Jewish goal. They wanted to be a nation within a nation. Remember the Jews always aspire to autonomy with themselves as the senior party. The Russians denied the Jews autonomy wanting to reduce them to subjects of the Czars. They insisted that the Jews and all the subject peoples become Russian.

By so doing, from the Jewish point of view, the Russians had declared war to the finish on the Jews. From 1800 on the Jews were at war with Russia, or, as the they put it, the Czars. At the time, 1800, the US was not a significant entity but within a couple short decades it would be.

The Jews of Western Europe were emancipated at almost the same time as Eastern European Jewry came under the dominion of the Russians. At the same time the Rothschilds had become the richest family in England and Europe with many other Jews becoming also very wealthy so that there was an economic, if not political equality, if not supremacy for the Jews. The kings and princes, the European nobility, stood between emancipation and Jewish supremacy so that European institutions had to be destroyed. Hence the nineteenth century was a century of revolution and destruction.

By 1870, following the US Civil War it became apparent to the discerning that the US was the country of the future. Thus, about that year their situation becoming intolerable in Russia the great migration equaling that of the exodus from Egypt began. Thus, the Jews in full revolutionary mode boarded the great steamships that parted the Atlantic to the US as the Red Sea had been to Israel and the transfer of the Jewish population began. The Jews did not come as peaceful immigrants but as revolutionaries seeking autonomy or as Abe Reles poetically put it, to get America by the wallet.

They did not come as individuals but as an invasion organized in Europe by wealthy Jews. This was an expensive operation. The way had been prepared for the Eastern Jews by the Western Jewish 48ers, those who fled Europe to escape the consequences of their failed revolution of 1848.

Circumstances had favored the Jews as they arrived just as the great technological revolution of the nineteenth century was gaining momentum. The sewing machine was beginning to revolutionize the needle trades. Thus, the 48ers appropriated the industry for the East European Jews almost guaranteeing employment for them as soon as they landed in NYC. The end of homespun and rise of readymade occurred fortuitously and the rag industry became Jewish. This was not inconsequential but a major coup.

Things became possible that had never been possible before. The great continent spanning railroads had come into existence within a decade of the Civil War. Standard Oil began its rise. It was the Gilded Age, money was there for the picking up for those on the qui vive.

There was a difference between the US and Europe that leveled the playing field between Jews and Aryans.   The US had never experienced a Feudal Age; there was no landed aristocracy. It had been born straight into the Age of Money. Whereas in Europe land had been the basis of status and wealth in Europe, in the US land was a nearly disposable commodity, you used it until it was exhausted then moved on. Money was what determined status and money alone. Being a millionaire was the height of success. For the Jews money had always been the symbol of success. In Europe it was necessary for money to displace land to be the signifier so that in that struggle Europeans lost out to the Jews as money displaced land and title.

Herbert HooverPresident Herbert Hoover

In the US money was the object. The question then would be how to outmaneuver the Americans to be the dominant money power. As Europe was insecure and as US Jews became as rich or richer than European Jews the World Jewish Government was shifted to the US at about the year 1900. The great Jewish institutions such as the American Jewish Committee, still existing today, took form. A whole generation of very active Jewish politicians most of whom the ordinary American has never heard of came to the fore. One, Bernard Baruch, would be a major power in US politics through the Eisenhower administration.

It would be tedious to list them at this point when the names mean nothing to you but they will appear. Key to the formation of Ford’s opinion of the Jewish problem was the Wall Street financier, Bernard Baruch. Prewar he made his fortune as ‘the bear of Wall Street.’ When the American entry into WWI became imminent, as Baruch tells it, Woodrow Wilson begged him to enter public service. Baruch did, becoming the Czar of American industry as the administrator of the War Industries Board. It was this point that being the Czar of something became an American cliché, The Czar of Baseball, the Czar of Wall Street, etc. The term has fallen into disuse now.

At the same time Wilson opened the doors of Washington to the Jews who up to that time had been treated more warily. But, as the WIB administrator Bernard Baruch was put in charge of the entire industrial apparatus of the US, all industrialists were subordinated to his authority. He was the actual Czar, autocrat, of Industry. They were accountable to Bernard Baruch and he took advantage of the situation to further his own interests and those of the Jews.

Wilson instituted an unnecessary rigid socialist government in the US during the war. Many old socialist shibboleths were imposed under cover of what was an unnecessary involvement in the European war, such as the nationalization of the railroads which were returned to their owners after the war over strong protest.

The rules Baruch imposed on industry were but little short of nationalization. You may be sure that Ford and other industrialists objected strenuously. But, Woodrow Wilson had made Baruch, not unlike the Federal Reserve, independent of any other authority with full dictatorial powers to enforce his, Baruch’s, will. Baruch did not have to clear his actions with Wilson or anybody else, he had full license. As he said, he was the most powerful man in America and possibly the world save Wilson and his actions were taken independently of Wilson.

Ford and the Dodge Brothers in Detroit strenuously resisted Baruch’s directives, the Dodges especially becoming intemperate, using racial slurs. Baruch did not forget. Fortunately, the war ended before Baruch had time to implement his full program, much to his regret.

Academic historians will gloss over Baruch’s actions as their careers depend on pleasing the Jews but the WIB was a major influence on Ford’s post-war attitudes toward the Jewish problem.

Henry Ford

Rich Cohen, writing at thirty, doesn’t seem to be aware of how influential the Jews were as Prohibition began but in both the aboveworld and the underworld Jews were well able to forward their plans.

Prohibition itself provided oceans of money for crime. While the Sicilians are most often associated with bootleg liquor the Jews were immense beneficiaries.   Rothstein himself set up the trans-Atlantic route in which his agents made purchases in the British Isles which were then delivered offshore to speed boats that took the liquor ashore. Cuba was a major entrepot but then Canada was showered with gold from liquor sales. The Jewish Purple Gang of Detroit ferried liquor across the Detroit River with no problems. The Jewish Mayfield Road Gang of Cleveland brought shiploads across Lake Erie with little interference. The greatest Jewish beneficiaries of all may have been the Jewish Bronfman family of Canada who were suppling both the Purple Gang and the Mayfield Road Gang. The Bronfmans emerged from Prohibition immensely wealthy and with their established European connections were major post-Prohibition distributors of legal booze.

Rothstein during his brief reign as crime lord also organized the distribution of heroin just before he was shot so that money poured into the underworld’s coffers.

But, to return to the aboveground rollers. Ford read The Cause Of World Unrest and that set him to thinking, and then he read The Protocols Of The Learned Elders Of Zion and that put him in action. It is difficult today to realize the impact of Ford from say 1912 to 1932 both domestically and globally. The Sherwin-Williams paint company used to have a logo of paint pail pouring out over the globe with a slogan reading Sherwin-Williams Paints Cover The World.

Well, so did Ford. By 1920 there were few places in the world that you couldn’t buy a Ford. I have no proof of it but I believe that the Daddy Warbucks character of the comic strip Little Orphan Annie was based partially at least on Ford. Ford’s Service Department was part of an intelligence force not unlike the FBI or CIA or the Anti-Defamation League so it would be unreasonable to think that Ford was not very well aware of what was going on.

His enemies have portrayed him as a rube ignoramus but quite the opposite was true. So, when Ford took up the battle in 1920 he was a very formidable foe to the Jews and the struggle was epic. The main weapon of the Jews, of course, was defamation and the protestation of purity and innocence and Ford over the coming two decades or so was so intensely defamed that even today he is reputationless.

The Damage Controllers of the Jews then first took up the task of discrediting and suppressing the two books they found the most damaging: The Cause Of World Unrest and The Protocols Of Zion.

The Cause was released in the US in 1920 by the prestigious firm G.P. Putnam’s Sons. The book was causing an uproar in England so the notion was to censor it, that is prevent its publication in the US. Distribution was very limited from Putnams who also recalled it. Other efforts were made to publish but they were defeated so The Cause Of World Unrest was defeated by those who call themselves the champions of free speech.

The Jews were never successful in completely suppressing the Protocols of Zion. Numerous versions of the Protocols are still available today although their worth has been superseded by movies and TV which are much better propaganda tools. The Cause of World unrest has been reissued by the Cornell University Press.

Ford believed that exposure would solve the Jewish problem so he bought a newspaper called the Dearborn Independent. Dearborn, Michigan was the location of his first major plant. Today the city is a Moslem center. He thus created what was perhaps the first attempt at a national newspaper as the paper was distributed throughout the US and actually abroad.

It was not necessarily a propaganda sheet. Ford was in many ways a social reformer. He objected to nearly everything in what later generations called the Jazz Age. One of those things were scandalous newspapers devoted to crime, sex, and carnage. Indeed, although this is not well known Ford ran one of the three largest movie studios in the US. His films were, of course, devoid of sensationalism, devoted to educational topics. We were still shown some in ’48 and’49 in class.

The Dearborn Independent was a sedate, wholesome weekly that featured an expose of Jewish activities in the US on a weekly basis for a couple years. The articles were then collected into four small books titled The International Jew. The articles infuriated the Jews and evoked an hysterical reaction from the aboveworld Jewish government but there was no handhold for a major lawsuit.

The international Jewish government was composed of people you likely have never heard of but were hugely influential in US politics. Louis Brandeis and his understudy Felix Frankfurter, Brandeis a Surpreme Court justice and Frankfurter a future one, Jacob Schiff, Louis Marshall, president of the AJC, Samuel Untermyer, Rabbi Wise among others and, of course, the ubiquitous Bernard Baruch, all wailing behind the scenes. William Fox, the Fox of Twentieth Century-Fox. The whole Hollywood establishment. All of them were arrayed against Ford. It was worse than today’s war on President Trump. Their chief weapon was the anti-Semite slur and Ford was labeled the Anti-Semite in Chief.

The goal of the Jewish establishment was to disable any critics as anti-Semites. A key goal was to make so-called anti-Semitism a legally sanctioned crime, a punishable offence as it is today in France. They achieved this goal in the Communist Soviet Union at the time so such a law in the US would be an extension of the one of the USSR thereby assuring such such a law would become universal.

The anti-Ford campaign would climax in 1927 in the Sapiro-Ford trial in which the goal was to make criticism of Jews a legal offence. Thus Louis Marshall, the president of the American Jewish committee sat in his New York cubby hole like a spider tracking a fly- the fly being Ford.

As I said above, in 1918 the Dodge Brothers- Dodge Motors- used language offensive to Bernard Baruch in the contest of wills over WIB directives. Baruch never forgave them and two years later the brothers died under mysterious circumstances. As mentioned, the Purple Gang was in Detroit, so an attempt was also made on Ford’s life when his car was forced off the road, very nearly pushed into River Rouge. The defamation had already taken effect so that Ford was treated as semi-deranged while it has been generally accepted that he staged the accident himself, while no explanation has ever been offered why he would have done so.

FDRFranklin Delano Roosevelt

Still, the articles continued and still the Jewish establishment was outraged. But, the US Constitution guaranteed free speech while Ford’s articles were firmly grounded in fact. They were exposes not defamations. Ford himself did not write the articles, that task was delegated to his editor William Cameron for whom Ford amassed a colossal library on Jewish subjects. His agents in the Service Department were busy investigating in the field. Ford did not do things by halves.

However, while criticizing the Jews was not illegal, the Jews had made it the extremity of gauche in gentile circles so that Ford found himself increasingly ostracized but not estranged. Believe me, he had friends in high places. A letter purportedly from President Harding is extant deploring Ford’s exposes and asking him to desist. Perhaps a forgery. At any rate about 1923 Ford agreed to publish no more articles, but the collected articles remained available in The International Jew series. The extant articles were probably as much or more than the public could absorb.

But, then, in 1924 it came to the attention of Ford that a man named Aaron Sapiro was attempting to organize farm co-ops in a manner Ford considered injurious to the farmers as they were in fact. Once again Ford sent investigators into the field to get a clear idea of what was going on. He once again began publishing his findings in the Dearborn Independent. This may or may not have been a setup but it seems clear that the proceedings were directed by Louis Marshall and gang in New York City. Samuel Untermyer.

The evidence implicated Bernard Baruch, Albert Laker and Eugene Meyer as well as Sapiro. Sapiro whose fortunes were on the decline may have instituted proceedings in the hope of a large settlement but as he turned the trial into a crusade to end ‘defamation’ of the Jews it became a move to make criticism of Jews illegal and punishable as it was in the Soviet Union.

The trial was something of a farce that ended in a mistrial when it was learned that Sapiro tried to influence a juror, jury tampering. Whether a new trial would be adjourned or not, Ford, in the midst of a critical model change, decided to call it off, made a settlement and walked away.

It is interesting that within the next year he traveled to New York City to call on Louis Marshall in his cubby hole. According to Marshall (see Letters of) they sat and looked at each other then parted. Marshall died soon after.

With the settlement of the Sapiro case the damage control in the US was complete although in Europe Adolf Hitler was on the rise and in a few years would be elected Chancellor of Germany setting off a huge reaction among the Jews of the US.

The Jewish government or establishment whatever you want to call it failed in the attempt to establish a semi-legal principle that criticizing the Jews was a punishable offense; however they did effective damage control and by defaming Ford silenced any further criticism of themselves. Henceforth any such criticism war strictly verboten.

DeweyMr. District Attorney, Thomas E. Dewey

Ford was not their only target; scholarly writers like Madison Grant and his volume: The Passing Of The Great Race as well as several volumes of the Harvard historian Lothrop Stoddard detailing an accurate account of current affairs and their logical consequences. By the early forties such writers had been so thoroughly defamed that they lost all credibility. Indeed, the Jews placed them on their index of forbidden books.

The Jews were also moving forward on several fronts. Their further goals were made feasible by the assumption of the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1933. As Herbert Hoover, who preceded Roosevelt may be said to represent the last of the post-Civil War ‘American’ presidents, so Roosevelt inaugurated the era of the immigrant presidents. FDR was a strange case. There was none with a more American heritage than he. He went back to the old Dutch knickerbockers, the first settlers of Manhattan. The fellows with the beads. Yet there is no president more representative of immigrant America than he. There has never been a president more tender to the Jews and their Communism than he. This tenderness also embraced by his wife Eleanor.

This tenderness began to show when they were quite young. The fact is that when the Jr. League of society women was formed to work the Settlement House scene of New York City after the turn of the century Eleanor participated and she dragged her soon to be husband, Franklin, along with her. The impetus for the Jr. League was railroad magnate E. R. Harriman’s nineteen-year- old daughter. Harriman was associated with the aboveground Jacob Schiff and the Kuhn-Loeb crowd. Kuhn-Loeb was the Jewish investment banking firm on a par with J.P. Morgan. Why these young society women chose to go to the Lower East Side to cater to raw immigrant Jewish women with no ‘upbringing’ or manners is a bit of a mystery. However a lifelong bond between the Roosevelt’s and the Jews was created. Indeed, it may be said that the Jews took the couple under their wing.

It was an irrational bond in which the Roosevelts seem compelled to accede to Jewish wishes. I’m going to go out on a limb here and speculate that the Roosevelts were hypnotized on the Lower East Side and implanted with post-hypnotic suggestions. Manchurian Candidates as it were. I imagine I hear you guffawing but the idea may be more reasonable than you think.

Bear in mind that these Eastern European Jews all came from the Pale of the Settlement. The assembly point for the trek to the transports in Hamburg, Germany was in a town called Brody on the Austrian border. As the assembly and departure point Brody assumed an interesting character. The trek to Hamburg passed near Vienna. Vienna was a hotbed of Jewish aspirations, a Jewish culture center. Vienna was also the home of the famed psychologist Sigmund Freud and the most active branch of the International Order of B’nai B’rith. Freud was a lifelong member of BB from 1895 to his death. He often lectured at the meetings on what must have been psycho-analytic matters including hypnosis. Freud was a supreme authority on hypnosis. Freud hated Europeans and European culture and wanted to see them all dead.

Key people on the trek made a layover in Vienna where along with Freud a number of organizers, all prominent well-to-do men lived. Vienna may have been the most important Jewish center of Europe. How improbable is it that they were given instructions on how to go about furthering objectives in the US? No stretch at all. One must also remember that key American Jews took long vacations in Europe every year. One imagines that Vienna was a favorite destination so coordinating plans would have been convenient.

Freud quite likely indoctrinated key people in hypnotism who spread it further so that many on the East Side would have been knowledgeable. What better method to gain the loyalty of the upper crust of society than through these philantropizing young girls of the new Jr. League?

So, Franklin Delano Roosevelt just drifted into politics with some pretty hazy political notions. It just so happened that a little way down the road from Hyde Park a family of Jews named Morgenthau lived. The Morgenthaus were very active Jewish nationalists. Morgenthau Sr. at one time served as ambassador to Constantinople, now Istanbul. Constantinople was a key destiny post and for many years a Jewish prerogative of US diplomats.

Henry Morgenthau Jr. attached himself to Roosevelt like a limpet. Whether he was a guest at Hyde Park or not he made himself a guest anytime there was activity there. In time, when FDR became president, Henry Morgenthau Jr. more or less made himself FDR’s Secretary of the Treasury. He constantly tried to expand his role in that position. He was in command of the money. The Treasury was filled with many Soviet spies.

There was also a very strange relationship between the Jews, Governor Al Smith of New York State and Roosevelt. Smith who was governor of New York for the critical period of 1918 to 1928 with a two year hiatus from 1920-22, was managed by the Jews also. His principal monitor was a woman named Belle Moskowitz. FDR was being groomed to be Al Smith’s successor as governor. When he was elected Eleanor advised him to be wary of Moskowitz. When he was struck down by polio this caused a certain amount of panic as Smith was set to run for president in 1928.

Louis Howe FDR’s political manager and Eleanor Roosevelt kept FDR in the game while he was flat on his back. As 1928 loomed it was necessary for FDR to succeed him. Roosevelt who was desperately trying to regain the use of his legs at his spa in Warm Springs was unwilling to abandon his quest but Smith put the screws to him. FDR ran and won by a narrow margin. Smith embraced a forlorn hope of displacing the Republican Herbert Hoover during the greatest boom the US had ever seen. Naturally Smith was wiped.

Smith was discarded and replaced by Roosevelt as the great Democratic hope. Easily winning reelection as governor FDR prepared for his presidential run. His replacement as governor would this time not be a gentile stooge but an actual Jew, Herbert Lehman.

Had Hoover been able to maintain prosperity there is no chance Roosevelt could have been elected in 1932. It was therefore necessary to arrange an economic disaster to give Roosevelt his chance. The disaster had been in the works for a couple years and the plan was sprung six months into Hoover’s presidency. The event was the great stock market crash of 1929. The Democrats spent the next three and a half years trying to prevent a recovery. The crash has been discussed endlessly with many different arguments but the end result was as desired. FDR succeeded Hoover.

This was not an ordinary succession but a sea change in the direction of the country. The old order of the Gilded Age and individualism had drawn to a close; the new Jewish Age of collectivism began as Hoover had predicted it would. In the Old Order the government had served the people; in the new dispensation the people would serve the government. Thus, the Jewish order in which the Jewish people served the synagogue was transposed onto the American system.

Accordingly Jews flowed back into Washington DC. The groundwork had been prepared by Supreme Court justice Louis Brandeis and his Harvard law professor acolyte, Felix Frankfurter. Since the ‘teens Frankfurter had been indoctrinating a generation of law students into Judeo-Communists; they now infiltrated every branch of government as Roosevelt created new jobs to accommodate them. This invasion of government was not unnoticed as his disciples were known as Frankfurter’s Happy Hot Dogs.

Roosevelt also allowed Communists of every stripe and then denied their politics. The first year was a busy year as among many other things the administration turned on the institutions, the ideas, the politics and the mores of the Old Guard hoping to stomp them into the ground, eliminate them completely. The notion wasn’t too different from that of the revolutionist, Victor Hugo, who wanted to exterminate the old believers because they could never be converted, or what was going on in the Soviet Union where old style Russians were being murdered wholesale, starved to death or sent to the gulags.

The revolution of ’17 was being completed in one way or another around the globe. In the East the Japanese were alarmed trying to set up a defensive perimeter in Northern China and Manchuria. The Soviets hurried to annex Outer Mongolia so the border between the Communists and the Japanese was roughly that of Outer Mongolia and Manchuria, or, Manchukuo as the Japanese styled it. While the US government was Red leaning, the American people were anti-Communist. The Japanese confused the two thinking they and the US were a united front against the Soviets. They learned too late.

Taxing became a major weapon in the Jewish assault on the Western peoples. In Europe, so long as land was the measure of wealth and status then the value of the land had to be destroyed. The great holdings had to be eliminated. Confiscatory taxation was a weapon of mass destruction on the economic front as starvation was the weapon of choice on the social front. It would take a generation or two but the old nobility, land rich but cash poor would have to sell out taking their useless titles with them.

In the US where money had always been the medium determining wealth and status it would only be necessary to destroy incomes and estates. Once again confiscatory taxation was the weapon of choice. Just as the object in Europe was to destroy the old aristocracy replacing it with themselves so the object in the US was to destroy the Old Money of the Gilded Age.

A campaign was directed at inherited wealth which was characterized as evil. The great Gilded Age fortunes had to be destroyed. That meant that in addition to confiscatory income taxes of up to ninety percent so the inheritance tax was raised to 90 percent shattering this value and impoverishing the inheritors. To add insult to injury a capital gains tax was placed on holdings commensurate with other confiscatory taxes.

One has no pity for the fortunate but while land was not the issue those with money had expansive life styles that could longer be maintained, could no longer be afforded, but with everyone in reduced circumstances there was no longer any market for the properties and what with property taxes they became less than valueless. Million dollar mansions became worthless destroying that wealth.

To take only one example, a bete noir of the Jews, William Randolph Hearst, ostensibly worth millions, was instantly placed in bankruptcy. He narrowly evaded it but only under the most humiliating circumstances.

A leading Jewish advocate of this holocaust, the writer Gustavus Myers, was advocating the prevention of large fortunes being accumulated in one’s own life time. In other words, after a cutoff point of X dollars one presumes the individual is prevented from working. That would have a very salutary effect on initiative. Myers crowed that with FDR in office they had their man to realize this insane hope. Fortunately FDR either didn’t go all the way or the Jewish purposes crossed with the rise of the beginning of the WWII, the matter was set aside and forgotten after the war, although confiscatory taxes continued for some time until the injustice was abated. The war intervened and the gentile wallet was saved for a decade or two. It is clear that the aboveground and underground were working together.

Through the thirties then Jewish moles were busy in the underworld, the aboveworld and the netherworld of politics. FDR brought Prohibition to an end upon his entry into office in 1933. This caused a certain disturbance in the underworld when their chief occupation as bootleggers was brought to an end. New vistas opened up however. The sale of addictive drugs grew by leaps and bounds while in the 1960s drug usage entered the mainstream of middle class America. The grip on America’s wallet grew stronger.

While J. Edgar Hoover and his FBI may not have recognized organized crime those more immediately affected recognized the monster when they saw it. That would be New York City. A rising DA by the name of Thomas Dewey seized the snake by the tail. Beginning in the mid-thirties Dewey began the effort to bring the mob to book. He succeeded admirably even getting the mobster-in-chief, Lepke Buchalter arrested.

As well as his extortion racket to milk NYC businesses of the tens of millions, Buchalter had begun a lucrative business of his own called Murder, Inc. Assassination was his business. The business model could be traced back to the Jewish Old Man Of The Mountain of Crusader Times. He is not be confused with the Ismaili cult of assassins led by Hassan-i-Sabah in Iran. He was separate but in the same business.

Murder Inc. was responsible for hundreds of assassinations having a whole stable of killers. Buchalter was first arrested by the Feds, Hoover had been prompted to deal with him, probably because the Mob gave him up to reduce the heat, but the City of New York wanted him to be relaxed to them to be tried on murder charges. They had a bear of a time getting him out of Federal hands.

In one of those hard to explain Roosevelt moments, FDR refused to release Lepke to a certain death sentence. When his hand was forced and New York tried Lepke and sentenced him to the chair there was an incredibly obstinate attempt to prevent his execution. This definitely would have had to come from the Jews who seeking to protect one of their own, wholesale murderer or not. So, we don’t just have a bunch of neighborhood lovable thugs here, we have the head of Murder, Inc. and his people are trying to prevent his execution! Rich Cohen can amaze.

The Jews obviously put tremendous pressure on FDR to prevent Lepke’s release from Federal custody but in this tug of war to bring Lepke to justice apparently Dewey’s men were stronger but even then their determination to put Lepke down over what must have been tremendous pressure from Brooklyn is truly astonishing. The Jews don’t often lose. They even finally got Pollard out.

However, the pressure applied by Dewey on the Mob scattered them from NYC fearing they might be next. Meyer Lansky fled South to Miami and crossed the water to Cuba to thoroughly corrupt that country. He made Havana the gambling Mecca. Gambling seemed to be the new Prohibition but the habit had been prevented by law and few seemed to be complaining about it. However, Lansky’s partner, Bugsy Siegel, chose as his place of exile Los Angeles. LA was close to Las Vegas. Gambling in Nevada was legal but the desert seemed to provide an unattractive environment,

Siegel, though, looked at it and saw opportunity. Naturally a barren desert, Las Vegas would soon be on the shores of Lake Mead, created by Hoover Dam (named Boulder Dam during the Roosevelt years, FDR hated Hoover and did all but blacklist him.)   Water, the missing ingredient.

Bugsy Siegel set about creating the gambling oasis of Las Vegas. A new bonanza appeared in Nevada but reserved for the Mob. Prohibition was gone but the Mafia had landed on its feet. The Jews found another way to get America by the wallet. And this time they wouldn’t be ashamed of it. In the twenty-first century they opened the The National Museum of Crime to celebrate their greatest criminals. The National in the title didn’t refer to the United States.

This does imply intent and volition, a pre-conceived plan. Let us compare these nineteenth century immigrants to a Jewish immigration of the late twentieth century.

This group of so-called immigrants also came from Russia and they had learned their criminal skills in Russia. They all had Israeli passports, actually being Israeli citizens while claiming dual Russian citizenship. Whether they added US citizenship isn’t clear as they always had to be on the qui vive to evade the law by hopping back to Israel from which they couldn’t be extradited. In fact, these people were a global criminal network. They were not only busy gutting the US economy- getting America by the wallet- but they and their confederates had stolen the public assets of Russia during its privatization scandal. They were a problem throughout all Europe at the same time. Masters of banking schemes and human trafficking, a synonym for prostitution.

As usual the filmmakers are the people to go to to get an idea of their activities. Somehow the movies always get the details first and right.

Rich doesn’t get around to examining this latest Jewish migration in Tough Jews nor even in his Israel Is Real. The latest immigration from Russia seems to be a grab and smash involving the whole world, grab the really big wallet. The banking system that grew up to launder the huge amount of criminally gained cash is a story in itself. Not here and now though.

Tough Jews is a good read from more than one point of view. It has something to say about the Jewish colonization of Brooklyn, the Jewish role in crime, the US during the first fifty years of the twentieth century and the organization of a national crime syndicate. I don’t think Rich’s Jews are shown so much as tough though, just murderous and amoral.

Why they would build a museum to celebrate these guys is beyond me.
