Opening A Case For The Reexamination

Of  The History Of The Twenties And Thirties


R.E. Prindle


No period of US history, or world history for that matter, is more misunderstood than the nineteen twenties and thirties. Some reevaluation is beginning to appear but much remains to be done.

In the following two essays I attempt a more accurate understanding of the squabble between the Jews and Henry Ford. You may be shocked, yes, shocked to find that Ford was not in the wrong nor was he an anti-Semitic demon. This is really interesting stuff.

The Night Has A Thousand Eyes


It was not until the 1936 election that Roosevelt moved the inauguration from March to January; thus the usual lapse of five months from election to inauguration was reduced to two.  It is also frequently said that Roosevelt and his cohorts had devised no plan of action before his inauguration.  That can’t be true.  As the Roosevelt administration was a continuation of the Wilson Administration  it must have known exactly what was intended if the details were somewhat nebulous.  Besides Roosevelt had little intellect; as Huey Long said of him:  Roosevelt ain’t smart.  As FDR’s ambassador to the Soviet Union, William Bullitt said of him he hoped Stalin could be persuaded to follow his scheme of things.  FDR was a man of hope not thought.



The plan of action had been devised as early as 1914 from the Communist angle and from the Jewish angle perhaps millennia.  The famed American historian Charles Beard tells of an incident that outlines the conspiracy dated from 1914 and then ridicules the investigator  and deriding his account in the usual fashion in his account of Roosevelt’s administration from 1933 to 1939, America In Mid-Passage.  The account is told from the typical Liberal point of view but, then, Beard was there so it is a firsthand account of how things appeared to him.  The story will be an adequate lead in to this period.

During the twenties the Republicans had pursued the notion of limiting naval armaments.  A number of treaties had been agreed upon between the naval powers to limit the size of fleets.  President Hoover carried this further.

Quotes from Beard’s America In Mid-Passage are in quotation marks, pp. 384-380:

‘…in 1929 President Hoover…sought to extend to naval auxiliaries the principle of limitation that had been applied to capital ships at the Washington conference.  Immediately large ship building interests were involved, and, if it had not been for a strange incident they might have successfully managed their lobbying behind the scenes.’

The shipbuilders had employed William Shearer to attend the Geneva conferences, to influence it in their wishes.  They failed, however in their payments to Shearer, who then sued for what he thought he had coming.  This brought his situation to the Congressmen who investigated the shipbuilders.

‘See a pamphlet bearing the title, The Cloak Of Benedict Arnold, Mr. Shearer had named names and classified advocates of peace and naval limitations.  He did not exactly call them “traitors” but the implication needed no comment.  Under Mr. Shearer’s philosophy “our country was betrayed by Charles Evans Hughes”;  and Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler and Secretary Frank Kellogg were almost as wicked.  Not all opponents, Mr. Shearer generously conceded were communists or traitors; some had been merely deluded or misinformed- victims of foreign propaganda.’

Thus from the other side of the debate which was shared by the way by that big Navy man, Franklin Delano Roosevelt.  He reversed the policy upon election.  But, Shearer in his investigations discovered a conspiracy that Charles Beard seems to find preposterous but he reports it thusly:

‘According to the version of Mr. Shearer…at the very heart of the opposition to naval and merchant marine expansion was a deliberate conspiracy fomented by sinister foreign powers.

“From October 1914,” he declared, “the weight of internationalism and communism was developed, the members of which, pacifist, defeatist, radicals of many hues and foreign agents, communists, IWW, and socialists, included in the merger, and a dozen or more organizations with impressive names designed to fool patriotic Americans and lend aid to the enemy.  Associated with these agents and these organizations of these anti-American bodies were statesmen, Senators, bankers, lawyers, actors, directors, and writers, men and women of American birth who were used to fight the existing government of the United States….All names, records, checks from prominent people in this country, instructions from Moscow, speeches, theses, questionnaires, indeed the workings of the underground organizations, working through secret bodies in labor circles, in society, in professional groups, in the Army, the Navy, in Congress, in the schools and colleges of the country, in the banks business concerns, among the farmers, in the motion picture industry, in fact, in nearly every walk of life- this information and authentic documentary proof of a colossal conspiracy against the United States were seized by federal officers and are in the possession of the authorities.’

Shades of Joe McCarthy!  Could it be true nearly forty years before Big Joe revealed that colossal conspiracy?  Beard seems to find Shearer’s researches incredible, indeed, risible but could dozens of independent researchers coming to the same conclusions all be nuts, ‘conspiracy theorists’?  These researchers were at least as intelligent and objective as Beard and his fellows.  While it is possible, indeed probable, that one can’t see what is in front of one’s face, I know the shock of finding everything I had been taught to believe was less than the truth was a difficult adjustment to make for myself.  Apparently Beard was not prepared to make the leap.

However Beard is writing in 1939 after six years of the Roosevelt administration.  The proof of Shearer’s accusations was made evident in 1933 when hundreds of these American conspirators followed FDR into Washington assuming important positions in his administration.  Shearer’s accusations were corroborated by numerous other researchers and even novelists of the period.  The proof that had been seized and was in the possession of the authorities was seized by none other than the much maligned Attorney General of Woodrow Wilson, A. Mitchell Palmer.  In the meantime J. Edgar Hoover investigating just these people had already amassed a huge number of files.

H.G. Wells had even written a book in which he describes the situation as The Open Conspiracy.  Open means everyone can see it unaided.  The only thing anyone failed to see was that nationalism was actually dead the war had shifted to one of ideology.  It was Communism vs. ‘Capitalism.’  All these people and organizations Mr. Shearer names opposing the US, that is Capitalism, were Communists, socialists, fellow travelers and what have you.  As Fellow Travelers, Parlor Pinks, Liberals et al., they had infiltrated every facet of America, indeed, Western life, where they remained disguised, dissembling because as yet the ‘Capitalists’ were the stronger party.  The American side of the revolution had been crushed in 1919, no reason to expose themselves to that humiliation again.  Had they exposed themselves they would have been immediately discredited, possibly losing their jobs, much as exposed ‘racists’ do today, now that the Reds are in power.  Of course, they lurked in the shadows defending borderline Reds with American virtues such as freedom of speech that they are doing their best to cancel today.

When Roosevelt entered DC with his big bass drum the legions he had been cultivating rushed into the New Altruria with him.  Louis Brandeis and his man Felix Frankfurter, Bernard Baruch, Sidney Hillman and a host of others experienced and very competent and they all wanted to exterminate the Germans.  Having gained experience in WWI they were prepared to more effectively use their experience in WWII and everybody knew war was coming and they may have known when if not the exact date.

Once in power Roosevelt behaved as a conqueror eager to punish the vanquished much as the North had triumphed over the South after the Civil War and as the Soviets and Americans would do in the wake of the German conquest.  Indeed, Roosevelt probably treated his potential sixteen or twenty years in power as a period of the Reconstruction of the United States along socialist lines.  Call the thing Collectivism.  Individualism was a thing of the past, now came a period the Collectivists called Co-operation.

During the entire period from 1914 to 1945 a state of war existed between the two states of mind.  The first few months of the Roosevelt administration were tumultuous beyond belief.  Roosevelt asked or demanded that Congress give him full dictatorial powers to deal with the ‘emergency.’  Thus there was little or no difference between himself, Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini.

Indeed his 1936 inauguration was a full military review that had little or no difference between the great military parades and reviews of the other totalitarian powers.  It isn’t that it wasn’t seen for what it was but that Roosevelt as with Obama treated his opponents as ‘domestic terrorists.’  They were allowed no voice.  Thus he began an assault on his predecessors who he designated as ‘economic royalists’, that is, kings.  Of course the American Revolution was fought to remove kingship from Earth.  The English Revolution was fought against the absolutist Stuarts, Charles I, the subsequent Glorious Revolution removed the absolutist Stuart James II replacing him with a constitutional monarch.  The French Revolution gave the coup de grace to the absolutist Louis XVI so what Roosevelt was doing was identifying himself as a revolutionist against royal authority.

He, then, in the character of a Robespierre arraigned the ‘economic royalists; in a show trial, preceding Stalin, or a kangaroo court in which it was demanded that the victims confess their guilt and take their ‘well merited’ punishment.  Not unlike the Nazi war ‘criminals.’  Of course this was not the Soviet Union or Germany where a Hitler or Stalin while not having absolute power nevertheless could manipulate their constitutions and laws to do as they pleased.   They could use the governmental apparatus to kill whom they chose, imprisonment with no habeas corpus, or condemn their victims to certain death in prison camps.

Roosevelt did try to convict and imprison the Republican Secretary of the Treasury, Andrew Mellon who was in office during what Beard calls the Golden Glow period.  He viciously interrogated numerous ‘royalists’ before Congressional committees and even had the younger J.P. Morgan photographed with a dwarf sitting on his knee as some kind of weird humiliation.

Later in his administration attempts were made to financially destroy his adversaries such as Henry Ford and WR Hearst while a continuous vile character assassination was waged against ex-president Herbert Hoover.  Roosevelt was not a nice man.

There is always the question of how much his polio attack and subsequent recovery may have unbalanced his mind.  Certainly the contrast between his eminent position and incapacitated physique must have offended his amour propre.  According to ancient usage Roosevelt should never have been in authority.  From time immemorial no man with a physical defect of any kind could be king.  Even so much as a facial scar disqualified a man as ruler.  As a paraplegic without the use of his legs Roosevelt was definitely disqualified as he knew since he went to great lengths to conceal his defect.  There were apparently many voters who never knew of his paralyzed legs.

His defect did offend many who insisted on pointing out his infirmity because they didn’t want to be ruled by an imperfect ruler.  This attitude may seem rude but old traditions die hard.

FDR’s administration was a reincarnation of the Wilson administration with a great many of the Wilson men returning to power after the hateful twelve year hiatus of Beard’s Golden Glow.  The New Era, Coolidge Prosperity, Normalcy or anyone of the names this rich era of history was known by.  The governance by the ‘economic royalists.’

Bernard Baruch returned.  Brandeis with his acolyte Felix Frankfurter and his cadre of ‘Happy Hot Dogs’ returned.  Numerous Settlement House people including Harry Hopkins and Frances Perkins, the hatchet man Harold Ickes, whatever he was.

The people who helped Roosevelt to office were either driven away by these hardline Wilsonians or disappointed by Roosevelt they left embittered and reviling the man.

Perhaps one of the most telling incidents that revealed Roosevelt for who he thought he was is told by Charles Beard in his America In Mid-Passage.  His 1936 inauguration perhaps gave away his own imperial pretensions.  Beard pp. 339-34

Far more sublime were two features of the occasion which he arranged to express his own sense of proprieties.  Putting aside protests from citizens and associates pacifically inclined, he decided that a military parade not a civilian pageant, should celebrate his return to power.  And he also decided that he and his immediate entourage (read: thuggish henchmen) at the White House must review the marching men, with banners and martial music, from a replica of the Hermitage, the home of Andrew Jackson, the hero of New Orleans who had worn boots and spurs in war and politi

Perhaps this was an indirect reference to his incapacity while Hitler must have been justified in interpreting it as an indication of his warmongering of which he quite justly accused Roosevelt.  As the religious and war leader of the Internationalist brigade FDR was a crusader against the The Children Of Darkness, the ‘aggressor nations’.  Of course as a justified sinner along with his Jewish cohorts FDR was merely executing the will of God on Earth as it was in heaven.  God himself had kicked Lucifer out through the Pearly Gates.  The incredible genocide FDR unleashed on Germany required no qualms of conscience.  After all knowing the will of Our Father it was impossible for him to ever do wrong.  No matter how heinous his crimes they were the will of God in his mind.

Congress, well aware of his martial ambitions, had tried to rein him in by passing the strict neutrality act of 1935.  Only two years after his inauguration they realized the direction in which he was heading.  FDR would shred any such legislation in the next few years as he activated a propaganda machine meant to inspire We the People with martial ardor and the proper crusading spirit to lay down our son’s lives.

A lot of lessons had been learned in the decade or so from the end of the last war. The prospects of gaining absolute control through another war were enticing.  For instance the German properties that were confiscated during the late war were given back; in this new war well prepared with superb planning billions would be confiscated by the Alien Properties Agency and given away to his fellow Chicago Jews by the Alien Properties Custodian David Bazelon.  The theft from both Germany and the US conquerors was complete and nearly total.

Also under cover of the most destructive war in history Roosevelt would complete the League of Nations idea with his own concept of the United Nations.  This time there would be no debating, no argument.  The job was done by war’s end and presented as a fait accompli to the Congress and American people.  As much a fantasy as the League of Nations, actually more so, the United Nations has done nothing to end wars and establish peace.  It has merely destroyed the basis or Western Civilization.

Under the aegis of the UN the world has been at uninterrupted war for seventy years.  Nice job Frank.

By their own admission the administration was unable to relieve the Depression.

One of the architects of those failed policies, Roosevelt’s Treasury Secretary and close friend, the Jew Henry Morgenthau Jr., bemoaned the administrations futile attempts to fix the economy on May 9, 1939, when he offered this shockingly frank confession to a group of democrats from the House Ways and Means Committ

‘We have tried spending money.  We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it has not worked….We have never made good on our promises….I say after eight years of the this administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started….And an enormous debt to boot.’

(Quoted from the Morgenthau diary of 5/8/38 by Fulton W. Folsom Jr through James Duffy: Lindbergh And Roosevelt, MJF Books, 2010, p. 12

So, as the war began in Europe Roosevelt had done nothing to successfully relieve the economic situation, in point of fact he had worsened it by incurring tens of billions of debt distributing it to CCC camps, Federal Arts projects and whatever to no effect.  What he had done, his real intent, was to strip Americans of their self-respect as they lived on a dole of one sort or another.

In 1932-33 Stalin had created an artificial famine in the Soviet Union that starved millions and millions of Ukrainians to death.  This was obviously Jewish vengeance for the Chielmiecke Massacres of the seventeenth century that were merely a part of the Ukrainian revolt against Poland and the crimes committed against them by their Jewish auxiliaries.

Now, Roosevelt claimed that under his administration one third of the US population was ill fed with many people apparently starving to death at the same time as the Ukrainian farmers.  The Depression was engineered by the same people who created the Ukrainian famine.  Is one to imagine this was a coincidence given the farm program Baruch and Sapiro were promoting that Henry Ford opposed?  I don’t think so.

The only thing Roosevelt achieved was a collectivist crusade against the individualism of the American Plan.  As he said, individualism is dead, this is the age of collectivism.  He might have succeeded completely except for the enormous resistance he initiated and perhaps a certain character failing.


Momentous changes in communications had occurred in the twenties.  Commercial radio had come into existence that by the thirties had become a part of American life.  Other than the auto, the radio was the most desired American possession.  Few homes were without one.  The second was the addition of sound to movies.  The silent era was over.  While it isn’t overly well known television transmission was also developed in the thirties but the commercial application was delayed until after WWII.

Thus these tremendous propaganda disseminators came into the service of the demagogues.  Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the Demagogue in Chief.  He either knew how to use these new technological wonders or someone showed him how to do it.  Actually as an interesting fact, Herbert Hoover had used the radio first during his administration.  The Republicans were responsible for creating the environment for radio.

Concurrent with the rise of radio and the talkies was the rise of the master propagandists who Beard points out were referred to as ‘Public Relations’ experts. A chief among these was the very Jewish Eddie Bernays, the nephew of Sigmund Freud.  You may be sure that at least behind the scenes he was influential on the direction of Roosevelt’s Public Relations.

Roosevelt needed them because reaction to his efforts to reconstruct the US along socialist lines was fierce and enormous.  In upsetting the psychological balance of the country he released numerous advocates of phantasmic schemes and political notions as controversial as his own.

Roosevelt must have wowed them with his ’33 inaugural speech because certain powerful men in command of their own powerful propaganda tools were initially proponents of his presidency falling away rather rapidly.  Among these were Charles Coughlin the radio priest, W.R. Hearst the press magnate, and Huey Long of Louisiana and his Share The Wealth program.  All three backed Roosevelt’s election then disappointed by his programs bailed.

Roosevelt was never tolerant or forgiving so that as the virtual if not real dictator of the US, little different from Hitler and Stalin it was dangerous to oppose him.  Long met his death, Coughlin was silenced and Hearst was financially ruined through taxation.  Roosevelt was relentless in his hatreds.  While there was no reason for him to hate Ford, yet because of the Jewish hatred of Ford, FDR was directed to force Ford to the wall through legislation both before and during the war.  For all practical purposes Ford Motors was bankrupt by war’s end.

Of course, this aspect of Roosevelt’s methods and personality were concealed by the avuncular persona he perfected and projected over the radio in his ‘Fireside Chats.’  The Fireside chat was a brilliant public relations innovation.  Of course FDR did not write the chats, those were prepared for him by others while he merely mouthed the words.

Nor is it likely that he had much of a hand in their preparation.  While the general direction of his administration’s policies were set it would hardly have been possible for him even to take the time to make the broadcasts.  This stuff was carefully planned.  A president is a busy man with a world of cares so that focusing on ‘chats’, bringing your mind to bear on the propaganda is nearly impossible.

He was in the hands of his writers.  These writers were by and large Jewish therefore pushing a Jewish agenda.  The number one item on the Jewish agenda was winning their war with Germany and that could only be done with goi manpower.  Roosevelt had charged the war on Germany as the chief of the aggressor nations on his election.  He began preparing the US for war in 1933 on his election.  Without a doubt he was the aggressor constantly urging the country to accept his view of Germany.  This was very evident, so evident that Congress pushed through a strict neutrality act as early as 1935.  So evident that Hitler repeatedly referred to FDR as a warmonger unwilling to listen to peaceful overtures.

Peace to FDR meant acquiescence to his terms or war.  My way or the highway.  This was true both in the East as in the West.  It was so evident that the country repeatedly repudiated his efforts to lead the US into war.  The war fever of Washington was evident not just to a few but the many.  This was well before the war began.  Harold Ickes in his memoir says that war was decided on in 1933.  Thus the administration must have known the goal to which they were straining.  This includes General George Marshall.

Charles Beard writes of it as fact in his America In Mid-Passage.  Roosevelt even propagandized the war albeit in covert ways, or at least ways that he could distance himself from.   Technology had increased the ways this could be discretely done.  Print technology, books, magazines and newspapers were effective; radio, talkies and a new medium that came of age in 1938 with the introduction of Superman; comic books came of age with that super hero.  The psyche and mores of the US were thereby changed.  The comic books were almost entirely the production of the Jewish mind, not the American mind but, the Jewish mind.  Following on the heels of Superman came Batman and after the Caped Crusader (note the word) came the ultimate Jewish super hero, Captain America.  The first cover of Captain America published before the war showed Capt. America knocking Hitler for a loop.

After the war began a whole flotilla of comics with war heroes and themes were introduced.  The comic books were extremely effective propaganda tools then and they remain so now, still completely in Jewish hands.

While Roosevelt himself undoubtedly had nothing to do with comic book publishers, writers and artists it is equally certain that Jewish members of his administration did, so that print, radio, movies and comic books were undoubtedly coordinated.  Serials of many of the wartime super heroes can be rented over cable for viewing.

Roosevelt’s opponents immediately after his election were depicted as Fascists and tools of the Nazis.  This alone shows the overwhelming Jewish influence.  Roosevelt himself was obsessed with the notion of depicting his chief enemies Lindbergh and Ford as undoubted Nazis while a tremendous smear campaign, character assassination, was carried on against them.

It would have to be impossible that any government would not use the movies for propaganda purposes.  Indeed, the movies became an extension of government policies.  For the Roosevelt government and its defenders to deny that the movies were not used for propaganda purposes is an absurdity not worth considering.  Beard’s Mid-Passage published in 1939 before the war even began notes the manner in which Roosevelt subordinated the film industry to promote pro-war films in the effort to get America to endorse a war against Germany.

Roosevelt would have been only one party interested in using Hollywood for propaganda purposes.  You may be sure that Stalin through his agents were also using Hollywood to follow the Moscow line

Of course, at the time, and even now, any propaganda influence is denied.  Yet, per Charles Beard there were studies being conducted pre-war that showed the influence and its degree.  The influence was clear to Beard and I’m sure Hitler and Stalin had no difficulty seeing it.

The obfuscation of the Left denying propaganda in film can be lightly brushed aside.  It isn’t even worth discussing.

While Roosevelt was a dictator on a par with Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin the historical mores of the country limited his ability to exercise his mere will as did the mores of the other combatants control theirs.  Hitler and Mussolini simply removed the Jewish influence or ignored it while in the US and USSR Jewish influences were paramount.

The reaction to Roosevelt once his direction became clear was enormous.  The ‘economic royalists’ did not stand idly by but organized groups such as the Liberty League offered vocal but meager resistance.  Of course the Liberty League was led by a Jew.  A few such as Henry Ford who also had WWI experience simply refused to go along.  Rather than use overt force the administration employed slander and sabotage.

Another big weapon was expropriatory taxation.  Incensed that there were a few hundred or two hundred million dollar fortunes in the US the Liberal response was to steal it- that is tax it out of existence.  As this would have or did have no effect on the fortunes of the Common Man, there were no distributions, the only reason for stealing the money must have been envy.

Actually the history of the US has been one of unbearable stresses that were all psychologically difficult or impossible to bear.  To begin with the period from the Revolution to the Civil War was primarily an agricultural and trading society with few large fortunes, so there was a rough economic equality although, let us never forget, there is always someone at the bottom.  Equality doesn’t mean that there is no social scale.

Thus to all appearances under the cover of the Civil War in one jump the country went from Longfellow’s village smithy under his spreading chestnut tree to the sprawling steel mill of Homestead.  The economy went from no petroleum to the gigantic Standard Oil in just a few years after the Civil War.  At the war’s end it took months maybe a year or more to go round the horn to California or the long arduous trek across country through hostile Indian Territory.  Four years after the Civil War in 1869 the golden Spike was driven and you could travel to San Francisco with all your possessions in baggage, yourself and family seated comfortably with no cares.

Following Standard Oil’s example Trusts of all kinds of products sprang up like mushrooms.  It was the economic wild west with no holds barred.  Magnificent fortunes could be had for the taking, mines, land, whole forests and mountains.  Not a lot of skill, really, was necessary, just a whole lot of bravado.  For a certain type of person for a brief period it was his day.  By 1900 that day had passed and that type of man was passé but he had left his mark on the imagination of another type of man whose day was in the offing.

The times were changing as the latter type of man began to come into his day with the election of the socialist Woodrow Wilson.  The type of men they were was made clear during the war tyranny of 1917-18.

A socialism that would have made the Stalin gulp was clamped on the unsuspecting people of the United States.  You wonder why Henry Ford and the Dodges resisted strongly Bernard Baruch’s dictatorship at the War Industries Board?  This was very serious stuff.

If the Armistice had been declared, according to Baruch himself they would have regimented the American people as none other had been regimented before.  This was evil as only Americans could do it. You may imagine the rage with which the Wilsonians greeted the election results of 1920 as the Republicans tried to restore the pre-Wilson America.  This was the Normalcy period from 1920 to 1932 that Charles Beard refers to as the Golden Glow.

FDR was in the Wilson government from start to finish so that he and a whole cadre of Wilsonians stewed and plotted until they were able to continue their nefarious course after 1932.  Their memories then were centered on the disappeared world of the Gilded Age and its Golden Glow.  They really were men and women of the nineteenth century still under the thrall of the Village Smithy and his chestnut tree not really dealing with the present as the path to the future.  Their minds were filled with vengeance.

Now, in that leap from an agricultural past to the industrial present from the small artisan to the giant corporation people’s minds were seized with terror by bigness.  There was nothing to fear but small minds.  Looking back they fondly remembered a time that scarcely resembled their memory but was small and compact and seemingly unthreatening although they should have read Poe’s Diddling As A Fine Art more carefully.

Had they been able to see ahead they would have realized that the small semi-isolated communities were a thing of the past while in the coming gigantic global economy a giant size would be necessary to succeed as the global economy grew and other peoples began to participate in what was really a Euroamerican monopoly.  Standard Oil would have to be big to compete with the monstrously sized Chinese demand.  Today President Obama is busy cutting it down to an uncompetitive size.

Rockefeller was a great mind that perhaps gazed into the future.  The times called for a great people to seize the future but the transition from the Village Smithy to Homestead had been too quick; the times were big but the people were small.  In their fear and trepidation they smashed the bigness and thus while not apparent at the time, condemned America to second or third rate status.  The men of Roosevelt’s administration were of that small minded kind.  They didn’t understand, hence unknowingly worked to enthrone the Chinese.  They were natural born slaves if there ever were any.

The second problem and perhaps the most infuriating for Roosevelt and his ilk was the great wealth accumulated by the magnates of the Gilded Age, for big money goes with big business.  Currency and specie had always been a problem in the early stages of settlement.  There just wasn’t enough money to go around so the people of Roosevelt’s school conceived of the money supply as essentially a round pie of which the Golden Agers were hogging all but a few small thin slices.  Hence you have the repeated notion that, say, twenty percent of the rich owned eighty percent of the pie leaving only twenty percent of pie for the remaining eighty percent of people.  Theirs was a small static world.

Conceiving the notion that this eighty percent of the pie was stolen thus forcing the eighty percent who thought poor to live in what was really astounding luxury it seemed right for the eighty percent to steal the money back- in theory.

America had never developed a realistic understanding of monetary matters so there was no understanding of the creation of wealth, still isn’t.  In point of fact if the Age had depended on existing currency there would never have been a Union Pacific, Carnegie Steel or Standard Oil.  There was not enough money so that the builders had to find ways and in creating value the money supply expanded, or was allowed to expand to include the newly created wealth.  Things were getting bigger.

Prior to 1865 there were very few millionaires, the number increased dramatically after 1865 and by the time of the New Deal there were thousands of millionaires.  Even during the depression the US was richer than it had ever been.  A mere thirty or forty years after the New Deal millionaires  would be a dime a dozen.  In our time nearly anyone who owns a house is a millionaire.

It was also true that fortunes didn’t last.  What one generation accumulated subsequent generations dissipated.  It was sure as clockwork.  There was no entail or primogeniture so that as subsequent generations multiplied the number of inheritors grew with it.

A leading expositor of the narrow minded economic view was the very small minded Jewish writer Gustavus Myers  whose most influential book was The History Of The Great American Fortunes.  As may be expected Myers roundly condemned the Gilded Age and The Golden Glow, the latter also known as Normalcy, the New Era, the Coolidge Prosperity and the Republican Interregnum.

Myers wrote several other books condemning American mores and finances.  For those interested I have discussed his writing in my post Chumps Playing Stud.  Myers went as far as calling for legislation to prevent future accumulations of great fortunes.  As he said his school had their man in place with FDR.

Myers was not complaining about great fortunes in general.  The key phrase in his history of American fortunes is American Fortunes, that is, Anglo-Saxon fortunes.  If one reads his book one will find almost no reference to Jews or Jewish fortunes.  It is as if there were no Jews in the US, and Myers obviously was a Jew.  The Jewish scalawags, the Seligman’s who reaped an immense fortune in government securities during the Civil War are no where mentioned nor the fact that they snared great fortunes by taking General Motors from Billy Durant.  The even greater Guggenheim fortune acquired from appropriating the metal resources of the country also receive no mention.  Kuhn-Loeb was apparently unknown to Myers.

Thus the Roosevelt administration used the taxing authority of the government to expropriate the Anglo-Saxon fortunes, destroying the heritage of the Gilded Age the members of which they considered actual enemies of the people.

Thus the small minded people destroyed the ability of the US to compete on the world stage.  Today the US has slipped behind China as the most successful country while India is panting close behind.

And then, a strange thing happened.  Of course after the Nazis assuming control in Germany in 1933 the Gilded Age people were grouped together as Fascists since in self-defense they opposed the so-called New Deal, called the Raw Deal by some.

However if the Gilded Agers weren’t responsible for the magnificent entity that the US had become, who was?  Why, who else but the Jews?

As the thirties came to an end and opposition to the US entry in the European war jelled it became necessary for Roosevelt to destroy the opposition much as Stalin had destroyed his because the US was going to war no matter who dissented.  The Great Crusade against the ‘aggressor nations’ was on.  In such a situation it was necessary to designate the chief spokesman of the enemy and discredit him.  Hoover was out of reach, Hearst had already been destroyed, Ford was quiescent but stepping into the breach was an old bete noir of Roosevelt’s, Charles A. Lindbergh.

This is a strange story.

FDR seems to have had a strong aversion to Lindbergh dating back possibly to 1927 but that is speculative.  Of more recent occurrence was the issue of the air mail service cancellation of 1933.  At that time the Roosevelt was convinced that the civilian air mail contracts had been fraudulently obtained.  It is also true that Hoover developed the air mail program as Secretary of Commerce under Coolidge so there may have been envy over that in Roosevelt’s tiny mind.  At any rate he cancelled the ‘sacred’ contracts and ordered Army pilots to fly the mail.  A pilot is a pilot is a pilot, right?

Flying at that time was much more hazardous so that the Army pilots who had no experience in flying at night or in inclement weather were not successful.  The Army was botching the job while a significant number of pilots died in crashes.  As you read American history life was really cheap back then, thousands and thousands of people were killed every year.  Nobody seemed to care.

Lindbergh took it upon himself to write an open letter to FDR imploring him to reinstate civilian delivery.  Roosevelt was forced to back down while being reported to have said:  We’ll get that fair haired boy.  That threat implies resentment of Lindbergh going way back to his trans-Atlantic solo flight of ’27.

So, when Lindbergh came out condemning any attempt to get the US into another European war thus frustrating FDR’s attempt to do just that FDR decided to destroy him.  What else would he do in the environment he was creating but call him a Nazi.  Thus the major defamation campaign was on.

Strangely this played into Jewish hands.  At the risk of repetition let me point out again that the Jews operated as an independent semi-autonomous people.  They used the US government in an attempt to realize their independent agenda that was completely different than that of Americans.

Events in Germany had alarmed the Jews although there could have been no premonition of the course events would take while as Americans they should have had little interest in Europeans.  However perhaps as Ford insisted Jews were natural born internationalists.  Rather than attribute the German events to their own actions it was thought that non-Jews left to their own devices were irrational and always a potential threat.

Building on psychological discoveries of the nineteenth century then, current understanding of psychological processes were much advanced.  The brutal manipulation of the American psyche by George Creel’s Committee of Public Information of WWI had shown how far and how easily the mass psyche could be pushed.

Subsequent developments in propaganda by the Public Relations experts had shown how far clever manipulation of symbols could go.  Thus, as Eddie Bernays the leading Jewish Public Relations propagandist explained it a superior elite had to take it upon themselves to guide public sentiment in the direction to take  to make sure there were no ‘irrational’ outbreaks such as those in Germany.  There was always an acute danger it could happen here unless the elite, that is the Jews, managed the national psyche.

Bernays was a nephew of Sigmund Freud who had spent time with that master propagandist and was in as close contact with him as circumstances allowed.  Thus Bernays and his fellow Jews began to develop propaganda techniques accordingly.

Seizing upon Roosevelt’s hatred of Lindbergh they began to arouse fears of a Nazi takeover of the US.  Now, the thirties according to the Jewish yearbook had the least ‘anti-Semitic’ activity of any decade in US history.  This seems odd as the Jews place such emphasis on Henry Ford’s writing all through the twenties.  Apparantly his studies had no effect.  Nevertheless the Jews attempted to impress on the US that it could, indeed, it was happening here.

The activities of certain cranks who posed no threat were give exaggerated publicity.  One such was William Dudley Pelley and his Silver Shirts an outfit that was so small and disorganized that he and it posed no threat.  Another absurdity given undue attention was a man called, if you can believe this, James True and his ‘kike killer.’  He turned out to be a ‘lone wolf’ sitting around his office giving out interviews while flashing his ‘kike killer’ that turned out to be an ordinary black jack.  Probably a Jewish stooge and if so a good joke.

No one was going to get far with a couple of acts like that as a real star was needed.  Lindbergh was it.  Talk about star quality. He was a household name and while an American champion, with the right defamatory propaganda, he could be made the butt of a defamatory campaign.  He was quickly built up to an insane Isolationist who was not only sympathetic to the Nazis but a Nazi stooge.  The connections were developed into the idea that he was a Nazi satrap who was going to run for President and once in was going to turn the country over to Hitler.  The idea itself was crazy but how’s that for a fearsome prospect.  Like Roosevelt said, we have nothing to fear but fear itself.  I suppose that meant we were supposed to go looking for it.

I don’t know how seriously this absurd scenario was taken but a movie called Keeper Of The Flame based on the notion was made, so, Roosevelt was seriously using films to press his agenda.  The notion was so important to Jews that in The Plot Against America Philip Roth published a semi-autobiographical novel of his youth in the Jewish colony of Newark based on this premise.

Very strange.  The idea needs a little further examination.

Roosevelt and Hitler assumed their reins of power almost simultaneously.  As I have pointed out German hatred was long standing while the Nazi’s and Jews qua Communists had been engaged in street warfare for over a decade.  Hitler thus squashed the Judeo Communists beginning in 1933 while the Jews declared a worldwide war on Germany at the same time.

The Nazis or Fascists were quickly equated to the Republicans and Roosevelt’s opposition thus FDR’s opposition all became Fascists in Jewish and FDR minds- i.e. The Children of Darkness, Satan’s henchmen, whatever.  Thus the idea formed in Jewish minds that they were the true Americans responsible for creating the beautiful American Dream.

FDR’s opponents were Fascists operating behind enemy lines.  There had to be an arch demon leading them so Lindbergh was selected.  All hatred could be focused on him and if he were defeated the cause was won.

This is all perversely explained by Philip Roth in his novel The Plot Against America.

In reality it was the Jews plotting against America but as the nineteenth century novelist Paul Feval explains in his Black Coats series a professional criminal in planning a crime first selects a scapegoat to bear the guilt.  Once the crime is committed the evidence points to the victim.  Once he is arrested and convicted the case is closed.  There is no need to look further.   As the criminals express it, the law has been paid and victim pays it.

Thus Lindbergh was the scapegoat who was to pay the law for the Jewish plot against America depicted by Roth.  Seventy-five years later it was still thought necessary to deflect suspicion from themselves.  Or was the story resurrected to direct attention from current Jewish operations?

Back in 1940 as US involvement in the European war seemed more likely the drum beat began for the extermination of the Germans.  The war would be a genocidal war and the horrific European Holocaust began to be tapped out.

In 1924 Harold Gray sat down and drew the first panels of his new comic strip.  A comic strip that outlived him.  Yes, Little Orphan Annie made her first appearance in the newspapers.  It was in 1948 that I spread the newspaper out on the floor and made my acquaintance with the little orphan girl and her dog Sandy.  I myself had just gotten out of the orphanage so there was an instant bonding.

I hadn’t been reading the strip for too long before the most fascinating character of the comics ever made his appearance.  Daddy Warbucks stepped on stage.  Warbucks, what a name.  Did he make his incredible fortune making munitions in WWI?  If so, it was only implied.

Warbucks was tall and slim, supremely confident with an incongruous joyish attitude.   I mean this guy killed people who got in his way as a matter of course.  Imagine trying to reconcile murder with business as usual in a young boy’s mind.  He had his own private army with two killer sidekicks.  The sinister looking Asp and the jovial giant East Indian, Punjab.  If your transgression was mild Punjab waved his cape over you and you disappeared.  If you made Warbucks angry The Asp pulled out his stiletto and you heard a splash.  The Asp always killed near water.  Daddy knew how to manage his affairs.

The Dangerous Duo

The Dangerous Duo

Warbucks was fabulous.  He had his own grotto where he moored his own private submarine.  He had unlimited cash so he was able to maintain his own secret service.  I wasn’t aware enough then but now I think that Daddy Warbucks was modeled on the great industrialist Henry Ford.  Henry didn’t have a submarine,  but he owned a fleet of Great Lakes ore ships, sort of his own personal navy, with a big F-O-R-D blazoned on the sides you could read a mile or more away.  He even had his own personal river up which his ships delivered the ore from his own personal iron mines.

His estate was upstream a bit on the River Rouge, his river, just above the incredible turn around basin he dug so his ships could go back out on the lakes to pick up more iron ore to keep his Model Ts chugging out the other end of the most astonishing factory in the world.  One time he unloaded the ore into his huge River Rouge factory and 24 hours later a brand new Model T rolled out the other end.  Daddy Warbucks had nothing on Henry Ford.

While the rest of us had to settle for our little electric train sets Henry owned his own personal real life railroad, locomotives, cars and all, real smoke.  Henry was pictured sitting on the coal from his own mines in his own coal car playing the harmonica as he chugged on down the line.  How cool was that?

Better yet, like Daddy Warbucks, he had his own secret service, the Service Department of Ford Motors led by his own intrepid Edgar Hoover, Harry Bennett.  I’m tellin ya, that guy Henry was on the spot, heck, he was the spot.  During the twenties he needed a secret service what with kidnappers, bootleggers, the Jewish Purple Gang, the Italian Mafia, and numerous other free lancers going around, labor fanatics waving bombs in the air, it paid to sniff things out.

Shots flying here and there, rough times in Detroit City.  All Henry wanted to do was make his cars, not battle in a war zone.  And then when the Jews began to war with him he sent his force out to gather incriminating evidence of their activities against him.

Of course the Jews reviled him for defending himself with his Service Department although of course they had no room to talk being awash in paramilitary and terrorists groups themselves.  They even had their own personal shadow government conspiring for a quiet takeover of the country.  Henry took them a step further pointing out that they had an international government working toward a takeover of Europe and the Americas.  He was right too.


All US histories have excised the Jewish influence on politics and social affairs.  To mention them is to be defamed as an ‘anti-Semitist.’  Jewish histories written by Jews for Jews are quite explicit.  They are seldom read either by Jews or gois.  Copies are sent free to libraries however they are seldom and quite often never checked out, even have the presentation slips inside.  If they are read they tell a clear tale of Jewish activities.

In point of fact there was and is an international Jewish government.

In the nineteenth century the government was run from France by the Alliance Israelite Universelle.  During the first years of the nineteenth century the US was disregarded as a fledgling country while the ocean transit was difficult in small sailing ships.  However as the century progressed the country blossomed, large capacity steel ships replaced the wooden ones and failed revolutions like that of 1848 displaced Jews sending them to the US.  With the industrial development after the Civil War it was realized that Jewry could be more effectively directed from the US with much better security.  Hence beginning in the 1870s the European Jewish population began to be transferred to the US while in 1898 the Alliance Israelite Universelle was shipped from Paris to New York City transferring the Jewish world capital to the latter city.  International Jewish activities began to multiply.

A big one was the International Order of B’nai B’rith in the US.  It was organized in 1843 but having branches throughout Europe by 1900.  The Vienna branch was a key lodge as it was joined by Sigmund Freud in 1895.  He remained a lifelong member.  Freud was beginning his psychological career at that time.  Nineteen years later his system of psycho-analysis was the standard of the emerging discipline.

His influence on world affairs through his association with B’nai B’rith would be increasingly felt throughout the twentieth century.  He was essential to forming the Jewish ideology through the death of Roosevelt in 1945.

Now, the Jews had been awaiting a messiah to redeem them for two thousand years.  The last bona fide messianic candidate, Sabbatai Zevi failed them in 1666.  Unwilling to place their hopes in a single individual the Elders then evolved the notion that the Redemption would come from the whole people.  The years set for the Redemption or Jewish Revolution were from 1913 to 1928.  As Ford understood, the events in all countries of Europe and North America were coordinated.  The two key events of the plan were the assumption of the control of US currency in 1913 through the creation of the Federal Reserve and the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia of 1917.  Both countries were seemingly secured although the US Redemption was about to be consummated but was aborted by FDR’s death in 1945.

The history of the Jews in the US from 1900 to 1945 then is the progression or realization of their goal.  The first key event of their plan was the fortuitous election of Woodrow Wilson in 1912.  Had Theodore Roosevelt not split the Republican vote by his Bull Moose third party candidature William Howard Taft would have been reelected and the Republican program perfected.

As it was the American public clearly did not want Wilson as President as his vote was half that of the combined Roosevelt-Taft total.  He got in by a fluke proceeding to begin elaborating a socialist government he called the New Freedom.  His administration was a virtual partnership with the Jews who assumed a position of power in his government through 1920.

One of the first acts Wilson performed in 1913 was to sign into law The Federal Reserve System.  In recent years it has been publicized to an increasing extent that the Federal Reserve is not an agency of the US government; it is a private corporation wholly owned and operated by nine international Jewish banks in both the US and Europe with a Rockefeller interest being the tenth thus forming a minyan.

The US monetary affairs had previously been managed by the J. P. Morgan interests also from NYC.  The Jews thus switched that responsibility from the Morgans and also beyond the control of the US president who had no authority over it or influence on it.  When the Fed engineered the Crash of ’29 Herbert Hoover the president bitterly remarked that the Fed had been placed outside of governmental and presidential control specifically to prevent such debacles while guaranteeing that under the Fed they could never again happen.  Woody blew it there, bless the Democrats.

In preparation for WW1 the remaining components of the Jewish government were transferred from Germany to the US.

Now, the Federal Reserve is responsible for the currency of the US so that the Fed actually issues the currency then loans it to the government, that is the citizens, for their use at interest.  Thus the Jews earn interest on every dollar in circulation. As the currency standard for the world you will understand how many trillions are now out at interest.  At the time the upcoming war would expand the currency in circulation exponentially thus providing huge interest to the Jews.  This is a key point because Jewish activities during the redemption would require more money than the Jews could ever have raised on their own.  While so-called Jewish charity did raise a few millions that was nothing compared to their financial needs.  Remember the Jews were supporting dozens of committees and congresses such as the American Jewish Committee at enormous expense as well as hundreds of synagogues along with their rabbis

Organized crime provided huge sums while Prohibition was a positive godsend.  All those criminals are buried in consecrated ground.  Today a museum in Las Vegas has been built to enshrine the activities of Jewish criminals.  No stigma attached.

Organized crime was important to the Jewish program but so were legal activities.  Thus it was that in 1916 Wilson appointed Louis Brandeis to the Supreme Court of the United States.  This was a break with the past as formerly the court was all Anglo.  As imperfect as his appointment was, the fact that Brandeis was a Zionist was even more important.  Zionism was and is in conflict with what was then the American system now almost completely eroded.

Perhaps it was not known to Wilson that Brandeis had the dual identity, or perhaps he did and was complicit.  An objector to Brandeis’ appointment described him as ‘a man who had certain high ideals in his imagination, but who is actually unscrupulous in reaching them.’  What the objector was describing is what is known as a justified sinner; that is one who is ‘saved’ in Christian terms at birth and thus can be as unscrupulous as he likes to satisfy his desires without sacrificing his guaranteed redemption.  The objector might as well have been describing the whole Jewish belief system, essentially the end justifies the means.

The drum roll began to establish a reputation for Brandeis as the greatest living jurist and the purest man alive.  Actually Brandeis was a ringleader of both Zionism and the Jewish Revolution.  Using his status as a Supreme Court justice one of the first things he did was buy a professorship at Harvard for his lieutenant Felix Frankfurter.  The drum roll then began to portray Frankfurter as one of the wisest legal scholars backed by his professorship at Harvard.

Thus he and Brandeis became two secular saints of both societies.

Frankfurter then began recruiting a cadre of acolytes to further Jewish objectives.  Over the next twenty years Frankfurter assembled the cadre that became important when Roosevelt brought the Jews back to DC.  No sooner installed than Frankfurter filled the Dept. of Agriculture with his acolytes.  Thus in one fell swoop he completed the program fostered by Aaron Sapiro that was temporarily frustrated by Henry Ford from 1924-27.

A key event in the establishment of Jewish supremacy was the trial of Leo Frank from 1913-15.


The Leo Frank Affair

The Leo Frank affair is a very important event in the Jewish calendar.  They never tire at bringing it up while it had long ranging repercussions.

For those unfamiliar with the story Leo Frank was a Jewish businessman living in Atlanta Georgia.  While his personal life is carefully avoided he is depicted as a Jewish secular saint who never did nobody no harm.   Contrarily he was described as a sexual pervert.  He employed young girls to make his pencils. By young girls we are talking child labor, pre-pubescent and pubescent.  So our secular saint was exploiting young children to line his pockets.  The temptation of all those young girls may have been too strong for his resistance.  On this occasion he called fourteen year old Mary Phagan to the factory on a Saturday when he was alone in the office, all others being absent, to pick up her paycheck.  Probably the amount was 1.86 or some such ridiculously low figure as that.

None saw Mary pick up the check obviously, but she was discovered in the basement on Monday murdered.  Frank tried to pin the crime on a Negro janitor.  Of course there was no hard evidence as to who had committed the crime but Frank was condemned as the perpetrator.

Why call the girl back to get her paycheck on Saturday after all the others?  Frank was tried in an American court of law and found guilty.  Louis Marshall, president of the American Jewish Committee, considered the conviction and death sentence as an anti-Semitic act somewhat like the blood libel.  Frank had been convicted solely because he was a Jew in Marshall’s eyes.  Marshall then began to organize a committee to free Frank.

Marshall was the president of the AJC, the AJC was the most important Jewish organization at the time as it is now.  It has always kept a low profile or semi-secret existence.  My wife’s aunt who was very active in Jewish affairs and the civil rights movement had never heard of the AJC until I told her about it which I find stunningly remarkable.

Mr. Marshall was a lawyer as well as president of the AJC.  In his lawyer guise he frequently accuses opponents of being ignorant of the law, yet on page 295 of his Champion of Liberty he says ‘…I am morally convinced that the young man is innocent.’  I have no idea what legal standing being morally convinced of innocence is but I rather imagine, slight.

On p. 297 he writes:  It is desirable to eliminate from consideration of the case, that Frank is a Jew.  The important thing to consider is, that he was a respected industrious, law-abiding citizen…’

The question is a legal one not a question of the status of Frank’s reputation.  In fact there was some question as to whether Frank was a sexual pervert.  Certainly his desire to be alone with Mary in his factory, a poor defenseless very young girl, might tend to confirm the opinion.  I am morally convinced this was so.

Marshall sets the wheels in  motion in his attempt to reverse the conviction.  In his reply to the letter from Judge Irving Lehman he further goes on to write, p. 295:  “Obviously it would be most unfortunate if anything were done in this case from the standpoint of the Jews.  Whatever is to be done must be done as a matter of justice and any action that is to be taken should emanate from non-Jewish sources.”

So, Mr. Marshall is falsely going to act on justice rather than the fact that Frank is a Jew.  He is going to conceal the fact while getting non-Jewish persons to front for him.  He apparently believes that if Frank were not a Jew the murder would be let drop.  On the other hand he seems to feel that Frank has been convicted solely because he is was a Jew not a rapist murderer.  Apparently overlooking the dead child he believes a Christian would never have been convicted.  Thus it is not a matter of justice but a question of the religion of the murderer but we’re not going to talk about that.

While recruiting a Christian front group to mislead the actual actors Marshall also recruits, one might almost say commands, a Jewish cadre of activists.  Now, Marshall was convinced or said so that the Frank case was the most important case since the Dreyfus Affair in France of the 1890s.  Dreyfus was a Jewish spy in the French army who was originally convicted but after a furious publicity campaign by the Jews using French front men they had the decision reversed a few years later.   It was then that the important French novelist Emile Zola was recruited as a front issuing his famous J’ accuse letter.  One guesses that the Dreyfus campaign was the model for the Frank case.

Of the variety of Jews recruited to act behind the front one was the advertising executive from Chicago, Albert Lasker.  Today both Marshall and Lasker have been obscured by time and may for practical matters be considered forgotten.  Yet both men had significant roles during this time.  Lasker as a young man entering his twenties at the turn of the century took a job with a Chicago advertising firm Lord and Thomas.  At the turn of the twentieth century advertising had nowhere near the importance or prominence that it has today.  Lasker joined the firm just as the advertising industry was about to develop.  Lord and Thomas, the founders, were men of the nineteenth century not having yet learned of the psychological learning developing under their noses.  Advertising was more educative at the time and less propagandistic.  Lasker would develop newer methods based on propaganda and psychology.

We are not too concerned with his work on the Frank case although its work would require a leave of absence from his agency that would continue through the Aaron Sapiro legal battle with Henry Ford.  Lasker was much involved in Sapiro’s attempt at a Jewish food monopoly.


The question that is never addressed by goi historians and not fully disguised by the Jewish historians is what were the Jews doing after emancipation.  The two key American agencies after 1913 were the American Jewish Committee and the Order of B’nai B’rith while Freud’s psychoanalytic Order played in the background.  One should not underestimate the Freudian conspiracy and its activities in Central and Eastern Europe.

Organization stepped up after the inauguration of Wilson in 1913.  Brandeis and Frankfurt would be key players from Wilson through FDR.  Alison Weir gives some indication of the basic Jewish attitude in her Against Our Better Judgment in her discussion of a Jewish revolutionary group called the Parushim of 1913 and on.

This was a Jewish guerilla group formed as an order with elaborate oaths.  As reported by Miss Weir:


“You are about to take a step which will bind you to a single cause for all your life.  You will for one year be subject to an absolute duty whose call you will be compelled to heed at any time in any place and at any cost.  And ever after until our purpose shall be accomplished you will be fellow of a brotherhood whose bond you will regard as greater than any other in your life- dearer than that of family, or school, or nation.”


Horace Kallen the author of the Order made Louis Brandeis, before his Supreme Court appointment, an honorary member.  Brandeis’ acceptance may have been more political in nature while as an honorary member he may not have felt bound by the oath, nevertheless as a Supreme Court justice he had pledged himself to an authority higher than the ‘nation’ and actually US law.  Of course he had pledged himself as a Zionist to that end.  Judaism uber alles.

Whether or not Lasker had pledged himself to the Parushim, as an ardent Jew and Zionist he also would have the same attitude as Brandeis and Frankfurter.  After his activities in the Leo Frank case Lasker devoted several years to Jewish activities, the Lord and Thomas interests being managed by his surrogates.

Bearing the Parushim oath in mind, in 1924 Henry Ford used his newspaper to expose the activities of Aaron Sapiro, a Jewish lawyer organizing North American agricultural cooperatives leading to the Jewish goal.  According to Ford’s researchers, a competent corps of men, Sapiro was aided in devising the co-op movement by Bernard Baruch, Lasker and Eugene Meyer.

As noted Sapiro had been recruited by the co-op plans deviser, David Lubin.  The first step in the plan had been the organization of the Jewish orange growers of Sacramento.  Lasker had been called in to promote the sale of oranges which he successfully did, thus it seems that he would have known both Lubin and Sapiro and probably was clued to the plan thus there should be no surprise that he was subsequently involved as Ford’s articles indicated.

Bernard Baruch, the King of the Shadows, served as a commodity expert in the Wilson administration thus he would have been very useful in forming these co-ops of commodities.  Working from the shadows Baruch had more power than one would believe.  As an instance FDR had to take him into account because as FDR said, he owned sixty congressmen.  That almost amounts to a shadow government.  Of course you will never learn that from Baruch’s autobiography.

Eugene Meyer was president of the Federal Reserve which would have been very useful although gaining information on him has been difficult.

One must believe that Ford’s exposure made Sapiro’s co-op organizing difficult although his influence was in decline after David Lubin’s death in 1919.  Apparently Lubin’s direction was essential.  Thus Ford’s exposure was effective regardless of any results of Sapiro’s lawsuit.  However the agriculture issue was not settled by Sapiro’s defeat.

As noted Brandeis was given terrific influence over American political affairs when Wilson appointed him a Supreme Court justice.  Like Baruch he was a major influence in forcing Jewish affairs forward leading a double life.

Brandeis, in whose honor Brandeis University was is named, bought a Harvard professorship for his disciple Felix Frankfurter.  The drum roll then began to blazon Frankfurter as well as his master as the greatest legal minds the world had ever seen.  Frankfurter himself began to indoctrinate decades of students, Jew and goi alike in the goals of Parushim.  Thus the oaths terms ‘on behalf of the Jews, my [own] people, and of mankind’ were inserted to include not only Jews but any of the goyim Frankfurter might seduce.  Plus Frankfurter could control to a great extent who was at the top of their class and who was at the bottom.

Brandeis and Frankfurter were rewarded in 1933 when Roosevelt was inaugurated.  Frankfurter immediately filled the Dept. of Agriculture with his disciples, none of whom were farmers.  One of the first acts of the Roosevelt administration was the passing the Agricultural Adjustment Act- the AAA.   Thus although temporarily derailed in the mid-twenties by Ford, in 1933 the Jews obtained more under Roosevelt than they could have by the laborious and patient work of Sapiro, Baruch, Lasker and Meyer.

Of course the AAA was declared unconstitutional in 1935 by the Supreme Court confirming Ford’s opinion of the plan but that was nullified in after years by its implementation step by step anyway.

It is probable that Ford never met Albert Lasker but their lives touched indirectly.



Henry Ford And The Aaron Sapiro Case




Enter The Speculator Bernard Baruch


R.E. Prindle

This chapter will attempt to get Bernard Baruch’s involvement in Sapiro’s career a littler clearer. Always circumspect in his two volume auto-biography one gains the impression from Baruch that he is only telling you so much as he wants you to know. That so much is always of a very positive character regarding himself. Although Baruch frequently finds or at least obtains no success in his public career it is always that he was right but the other fellow isn’t quite quick enough to get Baruch’s meaning. Thus when FDR fails to take Barney’s advice it is inexplicable to himself and as he imagines to Roosevelt’s later regret. However everyone consults him with gratitude.

For instance here is an interchange with Thomas Edison, then considered America’s greatest inventive genius:

For many years I carried on a heavy correspondence with men who were in a position to help the farmer. One of these was Thomas A. Edison, whose interest in agriculture must have been as surprising to some people as my own. One day I received a call from Edison’s secretary. Edison was on his way over to see me at my home, he told me. I had never met the “genius of Menlo Park” and could hardly fathom why he should be calling on me. When he arrived he told me that, having heard of my interest in the farm problem, he wanted my views on a plan for credit and marketing which he had drafted at the suggestion of his friend, Henry Ford. I undertook to comment on Edison’s plan, and he accepted my criticism graciously. I felt highly complimented when he wrote: “You are the first man who has had imagination enough to throw off the trammels of the money religion and analyze the proposed scheme like an engineer.”

That is the general tenor of the hundreds of encounters with very prominent men, the majority of whom are Baruch’s friends, over the 800 pages or so of his auto-biography. Edison, who had a reputation as an anti-Semite second only to Ford, seems strangely to have selected not only a Jew to read his plan but a principal in the Lubin-Sapiro Cooperative farming plan. He could have received nothing but a negative reading.

Bernard Baruch was born in 1876 in the former Confederate State of South Carolina. His father, though Jewish, had fought for the slave states and in the aftermath of Reconstruction had been a Klansman. This was a small marvel to the young Bernard before he left home for New York to become notorious as one of the bears of Wall Street. Bears are never thought well of on the Street so that Baruch’s reputation was always on the negative side.

While he never tells us how large his fortune was at any rate he was able to give up Wall Street during the Great War to enter public service, as he says, at the insistence of President Woodrow Wilson himself. That’s the way it was with Barney, all the great men came to him for advice unsolicited.

More than financially secure he was able to dispense considerable largesse, as he says. He entered Wilson’s war administration as the head of the War Industries Board- the WIB. Here he began the collectivization of American industry somewhat like the industrial codes of Roosevelt’s NIRA. Bernard’s reputation was as a speculator on Wall Street and a bear at that so when he was chief of the WIB and demanded all industrialists submit their financial data to him this would have an invaluable asset to him for his speculations. In fact he was accused of the very thing.

One shouldn’t be too surprised then that there was strenuous opposition to his request. None was more strident than that of the automakers of Detroit including the most famous industrialist of all, Henry Ford. As in 1935 when the Supreme Court defused the same type of situation in which Ford was embroiled so the end of WWI defused this one, but Ford had had his first encounter with Baruch and Jewish collectivist methods.

During the War farmers had benefited as much or more so than industry. These were a couple fat years as prices rose and demand exceeded supply. Farmers are not actually businessmen. Wartime orders both made and destroyed companies. The orders were so large that companies had to expand their capacity at great expense. Some like the small arms manufacturers did so at great expense only to fall on hard times when orders ceased in 1918, but the expenses went on causing them great distress much like the farmers.

On the other hand Dupont was heavily criticized when having received a huge order from France they explained to the French that they would have to build a new factory and would only do so if the French paid for it. Thus, when the orders stopped Dupont’s expense stopped and they made the transition to peacetime easily.

The farmers were in the position of the small arms manufacturers. They had bought lots of equipment as farming became more mechanized. When their sales collapsed and expenses went on they were in a desperate situation as banks had no choice but to foreclose. Not being businessmen the farmers were slow at financials.

Agriculture through the twenties was in desperate shape. Ford who had a soft spot for farmers from his youth on the farm took a great interest in the problem working out his own solutions apparently with the help of his great friend and fellow ‘anti-Semite’ Tom Edison.

According to Baruch he also became interested in the farm problem. From the quote about Edison it would appear that he had been for at least a decade or so. This raises the question of whether or how much he knew about David Lubin.

Then, in 1922- Bernard Baruch, My Own Story Vol. II, The Public Years, p. 159:

By 1922, a total and tragic collapse of the tobacco market had brought Kentucky to the “verge of anarchy,” in the words of Judge Robert Bingham, publisher of the Louisville Courier-Journal and the Louisville Times and later Ambassador the Court of St. James. At the suggestion of Arthur Krock, the editor-in-chief of the Louisville Times, Bingham asked me to join him in organizing the Kentucky tobacco growers, which I did.

The services of Aaron Sapiro, the foremost expert on the organization and management of cooperatives, were enlisted.

Who are you going to go to when you’ve got a tough problem? Why, Super Bernard Baruch of course. And Bernie, naturally, went to the top expert in the field his fellow Jew, Aaron Sapiro. But, had they known each other before, were they fellow conspirators? Baruch doesn’t say. Now, the reader unconsciously accepts Bernard’s opinion that Sapiro is THE foremost expert. That he was foremost implies that there were several other experts. So Sapiro is not alone in his field. According to Baruch, then, Sapiro was head and shoulders above all the others. Perhaps, but probably not, but what and how does Aaron know about cooperatives? After all, he began as a nickel and dime lawyer in San Francisco.

The Jewish cooperative movement of which Baruch and Sapiro were exemplars had begun back around the turn of the century under the leadership of the Jew David Lubin among Jewish orange growers around Sacramento, California. What was known as the Sapiro Plan was actually the Lubin plan.

Aaron Sapiro

Aaron Sapiro

Sapiro began as a shyster lawyer in San Francisco becoming known to Lubin who made him a cooperative ‘expert.’ Lubin who had grand international plans then departed for Europe where he managed to sell his plan to the king of Italy. Taken under the king’s wing, financed by him, Lubin set to work. A question is did Ford know about Lubin? As he mentioned that the Jews had an international plan, and Lubin was behind one, I’m guessing that he did. Unfortunately for Lubin and possibly for Sapiro he was cut down by influenza in 1919. After 1919 then Sapiro was on his own and appears to have begun drifting. His fortunes began declining so he was already on the skids when Baruch brought him into the Kentucky tobacco affair. By 1924 it may have been necessary for him to seek a million by suing Ford.

David Lubin

David Lubin

Ford had his newspaper, the International Dearborn Independent. During 1920-21 Ford had published 91 articles exposing Jewish machinations in the US. The articles were all true, that is, factually correct, but the Jews ever sensitive to criticism denounced Ford as an anti-Semite. Exposes had a long history and the debunking authors coming along on the heels of the muckrakers became prominent in the twenties so in that sense Ford was right in step with the times. Ford wasn’t doing anything that the Jews weren’t doing with the exception that he was doing it to the Jews.

Sapiro having come to his attention, in 1924 he began a series of 20 articles exposing what was the Lubin-Sapiro plan but Ford didn’t know of or at least didn’t mention David Lubin. Ford’s articles did couple Bernard Baruch’s name with Sapiro’s as well as those of fellow Jews Eugene Meyer and Albert Lasker.

In Volume II of his memoirs, The Public Years, Baruch discusses this involvement. 159-162:

It seemed to me that farmers could spare themselves many trials if, instead of trying to create an organization, they could acquire one already established, one with adequate facilities, experienced personnel, and a standing in the marketing field.

In other words, organized as businessmen, which they weren’t.

I approached J. Ogden Armour the meat packing tycoon, in the spring of 1923. I proposed that he sell his Armour grain company, one of the largest grain marketing houses in the country, to several farmer organizations. This idea was not without its implicit irony. Armour was then anathema to farmers, representing all that was evil in the creation and operation of the Chicago meat packing empires, which Upton Sinclair had execrated in his famous book, The Jungle.

So, the farmers have the leading Wall Street bear speculator getting a scourge of the farmers, Armour Packing Co., to sell that what appears to be a very profitable business. At what price?

I suggested a plan which he readily endorsed. Under its terms a farmer organization would purchase the Armour Grain Company. Its duration would be entrusted temporarily to a board comprising the present management, representatives of the farmers, and representatives of the public. When the farmers’ indebtedness to Armour was liquidated, direction would be left entirely to the farmers.

Not clear exactly what Baruch is smoking here. I can see about twenty things that could go very wrong here. First we have sharpers vs. rubes. Very bad start. Then we have ‘entrusted temporarily’. Two bad words there, trust and temporary. And skipping over to the end, direction by farmers. Farmers are farmers busy farming. They aren’t going to direct any of this. They are going to have to trust permanently after having given up their independence. My daddy always said you can’t trust anybody and I found that to be true. I couldn’t even trust daddy.

The farmers weren’t going for any of it and between Baruch and Armour I don’t blame them. Now, we’re getting a little closer to the bone after this carefully worded preface:

Many people who admired the doctrines of competition, more in theory than in practice, professed to see in the cooperative marketing movement a violation of the anti-trust laws at the very least; and, at worst, a dangerous form of collectivism.

Yes, it was a dangerous form of collectivism. The farmers wouldn’t be any better off and they would be bound by the collective of which Baruch and his group would be the beneficiaries. There were other cooperative plans so farmers seeing their plan as a number of violations wasn’t necessarily opposition to cooperatives.


One of the loudest voices in the hostile pack was Henry Ford’s who used his mouthpiece, the Dearborn Independent to unleash a particularly violent an bigoted attack on cooperative marketing, labeling it the handiwork of Jews and Communists, and naming Aaron Sapiro and me as among the alien influences responsible for this un-American idea.

I don’t see how being opposed to an unsound plan makes one evil as Baruch says here. I don’t know how you can be bigoted against the concept of cooperative marketing while I don’t believe Ford was actually opposed to farm coops. I may be wandering but I’m not sure farm coops and Baruch’s use of cooperative marketing are the same thing.

To my knowledge the Sapiro articles from the Independent haven’t been published in book form so I haven’t read them but I am unwilling to accept Baruch’s self-serving characterization of them. After all, what we have here is an us vs. them situation. One can’t expect fair play from Baruch and the rest.

Following the above Baruch gives a long paragraph of character assassination of Ford. Then, as if to vilify Ford further he gives us this diatribe, p. 162:

Beginning with the issue of May 22, 1920, and leading with a front-page editorial captioned “The International Jew: The World’s Foremost Problem” the Independent had carried on one of the most violent and sustained anti-Semitic attacks ever seen in this country. Its pages were filled with it for ninety-one consecutive issues. It was an operation as fantastic in its planning as in its execution. E.G. Liebold, a Ford executive, had established a detective agency in New York City to investigated the private lives of Jews and providing fodder for the Independent campaign. Many of the agency’s men had numbers like 121X. It was this bureau that bought a translation of the spurious “Protocols Of The Learned Elders Of Zion,” a notorious and classic anti-Semitic document, which provided the Independent with material for a year and a half.

One day the Independent appeared with a headline and story proclaiming me as the “pro-consul of Judah in America’ and a Jew of Super-Power,” the head and front of a dictatorial conspiracy.


I ignored these assaults, but Sapiro was irate.

The detective agency would have been part of Ford’s Service Department. I can’t fathom why Baruch was irate because the Xs were spying on the private lives of Jews. While I find that, if true, offensive however the fact is that the American Jewish Committee and the ADL keep files on 3,000,000 of what they presume are American anti-Semites of which there is a file on me. Believe me it can be quite an invasion of privacy.

Currently some of my essays are displayed on the ADL site as examples of anti-Semitism which I consider defamation. No one thought to ask me. So, Bernard is being somewhat disingenuous here.

As far as his being a pro-consul, whatever is meant by that, I believe he probably was an officer of the international Jewish government. As far as being a Jew of Super-Power, any reading of his auto-biography would indicate he obviously thought of himself as that.

So here in these quotes from four carefully written pages of Baruch’s we have a principal participants view of what the thought was happening and how he was involved in it. He carefully selects what information to release but it isn’t that difficult to read between the lines.

Tracking down Eugene Meyer and Albert Lasker’s involvement looks to be more difficult however the more one looks into this issue the more Henry Ford is exonerated.

Today we are spending millions on a Voice of America, that it is fondly hoped, will persuade Russia to “understand” America. Why not a drive to make Americans understand America? A crusade that will raise patriotism above “liberalism’s” sneers, lifting all eyes to the shining arch of democratic achievement, and away from mean search for flaws at the base? We are a great people, and out of the glory of the republic’s morning, what may not be expected of the noon? If we are given a recovery of pride, courage, and faith, what height can dismay our climbing feet?

–George Creel- Rebel At Large

1947. George Putnam’s Sons


The period from 1913 when Woodrow Wilson became president to 1953 when the honorable Harry Truman passed the reins of government to Dwight Eisenhower must be studied as one unit. Dominating the period was the lust for a League of Nations in Wilson’s terminology at the beginning of the period, the United Nations as conceived by Franklin Roosevelt at the end.

The issue was placed in terms of Internationalism vs. Isolationism by the Wilsonians, a surrender of sovereignty by the opposition. As one can see the Wilsonians gave a pejorative to their opponents. Demonology. The Wilsonians characterized themselves as people of inherent almost godlike virtue, their opposition as devils. No compromise was possible for the Wilsonians, it was all or nothing. They believed that they could legislate peace.

They refused to see that there never had been peace at any time in the world, the history of mankind was a history of war or, as Edward Gibbon put it, a record of crimes and follies. While the Wilsonians concentrated on the European national war they failed to see that warfare was brewing in other quarters that would cancel out any agreements between Europeans. They were warned of it, told in no uncertain terms by men like Madison Grant and Lothrop Stoddard. Stoddard wrote three books identifying three trends that have played out as he indicated. The first book was The Rising Tide Of Color Against White Supremacy that indicated the revolt of the colored world against White hegemony. No surprise there. The second was The New World Of Islam that accurately predicted the current Moslem assault on Western Civilization and the third was The Revolt Against Civilization: The Menace Of The Underman that warned against the assault on civilization by those marginalized by the intelligence required to function in the modern technological and scientific world.

After 70 years or so of the United Nations warfare is as or more endemic over the whole planet as it was in Roosevelt’s time. Furthermore the most trigger happy of the whole lot is Roosevelt’s own disciple Barack Obama, the first Negro US president. His administration’s record to this time is war piled on war.

More importantly for Roosevelt’s time was that Wilson’s Versailles Peace Treaty led directly to WWII, League of Nations or no. Before the ink was even out of the pen pundits were predicting a world war two within twenty years and so it came to be. There was no peace, there will be no peace. And for this fantasy Roosevelt stripped his countrymen of their freedoms just as his successor is doing.

It is necessary to recapitulate the entire period.


Immigration And Immigrants

US history since the twentieth century began has been written from the point of view of the immigrant. Therefore immigrants are portrayed as good and the native reaction as evil. A couple immigrant nationalities stand out and chief of these is the Jewish people. The Jews are master propagandists while at the same time being an overwhelming influence on American historical writing. The country’s historical opinion has been formed by Jews.

In Russia and Central Europe Jews always rejected the authority of the host country seeking instead an autonomous position relative to the host. They nearly succeeded in this goal in Poland while the Russians stoutly resited their goal. Thus Jews and Russians fought an asymmetrical war for over a hundred years in which the Jews were the victor in the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. Until the accession of Stalin after Lenin’s death the Jews were supreme.

When the Jews emigrated to the US they naturally sought an autonomous relationship hoping to establish Yiddish as an official language on a par with English. While they failed in the latter goal, although efforts continue, with the inauguration of Woodrow Wilson in 1913 they flooded into DC as an essential part of the administration. They were influential if not autonomous or wholly equal.

Their activities in Russia, now the Soviet Union, as a symbol of victory the name was changed to erase the Russians, alarmed the world. A world wide reaction occurred because the Jews were then in a position using both asymmetrical and possibly conventional warfare to conquer the world. Theirs was an international operation or conspiracy even though they naturally denied it.

One of the most active exposers of Jewish designs of the period was the American, Henry Ford. Ford owned the first national newspaper, the Dearborn Independent. He ran a series of exposes over a two year period which he collected into four small volumes called The International Jew. This was a statement of fact not fancy or prejudice. Taken, one imagines, by surprise the leading Jewish organizations couldn’t formulate a powerful response. Of course they were in full damage control mode throughout the West.

Aaron Sapiro

Aaron Sapiro

Then in 1924 Ford began a twenty part expose of the activities of an agriculturist charlatan named Aaron Sapiro. Sapiro was a Jew. He beginning in the West, he was from California, and moving East began organizing farmers into his notion of cooperatives. Ford’s Independent denounced him as part of an international Jewish conspiracy to control, in essence, food stuffs. A corner on food, so to speak.

Whether he was part of a larger organization or on his own Sapiro decided to sue Ford for defamation not only of himself but the Jewish people as a whole. An innovation. The suit did go to trial ending in a mistrial. However judging from existing accounts, most notably Miss Victoria Woeste’s ‘magisterial’ history of the situation, there seems to be the notion that Ford made false allegations.

The Great Henry Ford

The Great Henry Ford

Apparently no one on Ford’s side came across a statement Sapiro made before a convocation of Jewish notables in Detroit in which he said:

We will show that Henry Ford’s attack, on the part I have taken in promoting cooperative marketing among the farmers of this country means but one thing…that Ford and his hirelings are bent upon eliminating the Jew from agriculture. But little do these men realize that the efforts exerted by those who would apply to agriculture the sound methods which obtain in modern business will result in placing agriculture on a basis of prosperity and productivity, without which it is doomed. And these malicious individuals do not know or do not wish to know, that it was men like the late David Lubin, A Californian Jew, who laid the foundation for a new and significant era in American farming.

David Lubin? Not only did Henry Ford and his ‘hirelings’ not know of David Lubin but neither did Miss Woeste or else for some reason she wished to conceal the fact. But then I never heard of David Lubin nor has any other writer on the topic.

David Lubin

David Lubin

But to consider the paragraph of Sapiro in which he says a great deal that undermined his suit against Ford. David Lubin was only one of perhaps several like minded men according to Sapiro. Who were these other men, were they all Jews and what was this foundation for a new and significant era in American farming that they laid? Those are interesting questions which inevitably lead to a ‘conspiracy’. Sapiro was obviously a disciple of Lubin, while the so-called Sapiro Plan must have been the same as Lubin’s or based on that plan.

Sapiro believed that agriculture was ‘doomed’, that is dead, without applying to agriculture the sound methods that obtain in modern business. He doesn’t tell us exactly what he means so we can only guess. However on thing to which Ford objected was that Sapiro wanted to form large aggregates of farmers and then withhold their produce from the market until they got the price they wanted. Well, that’s equivalent to a strike against the public interest. Calvin Coolidge during the Boston police strike laid down the rule that no one has the right to strike against the public interest. But it isn’t stated exactly what Sapiro meant. In any event it appears that Sapiro was participating in a larger movement or conspiracy as Ford claimed.

Now, who was this David Lubin of whom Sapiro considered himself a disciple? What is his story?

David Lubin was neither an American nor a Californian although for a part of his life he lived in America and a smaller part in California. He was born a Jew in Klodawa, Poland in 1849 moving to England in 1853 then moving to New York as part of his family in 1855.

According to Wikipedia: ‘He received a scant education and at an early age was placed in a jewelry factory in Attleboro, Massachusetts…he drifted to California…where he opened a store in Sacramento in the 1870s.



While in Sacramento he bought a fruit ranch…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, he became the 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.


So David Lubin was the archetype of the international Jew with no settled place of residence. From California he would move to Italy, dying in Rome in 1919. In Rome he continued his organizational efforts to create unification of Jewish American and Jewish European food merchants.

During his life he was more interested in Jews than Americans which was part of Ford’s complaint about Sapiro. The word ‘international’ runs all through his history. Lubin was placed in charge of the worldwide, that is international, settlement of Russian Jewish colonies. He established ‘colonies’ of Jews in California, then sought subsidies, that is grants of public money, for them through the US government.

Lubin is the role model of Aaron Sapiro. It is this role that Ford objected to. Miss Woeste doesn’t tell us whether Sapiro was in contact with Rubin, I suspect he was, and certainly his associate, Bernard Baruch, who was a commodities expert, who was in close contact with Sapiro, most likely had some sort of contact if not association with Lubin. In fact Lubin may have recruited and tutored Sapiro who at the time was merely unsuccessful hack lawyer in San Francisco.

Interestingly it appears that David Lubin made his mark on the world. While in Rome Lubin established the International Institute of Agriculture, backed and supported by the King of Italy, which continued in existence until 1945 when it was incorporated into the UN Food and Agriculture Organization. Lubin was not exactly a non-entity even in 1919 when he died.

There is every reason then to believe that Ford was correct in his assessment of Sapiro’s activities. Some sort of international plan benefiting Jews was in the process of being formed. Had Ford pursued the retrial I suspect he would have won. His problem was that it was just too time consuming while he was in the process of ending the Model T and designing the Model A in 1927.

As it was the trial was sort of a public relations triumph for the Jews.

On the international scale, while the Jews and the big Jewish organizations such as the American Jewish Committee, and the Anti-Defamation League were busy battling Ford in America they were involved in street warfare in Germany with German nationalist groups.

The menace to German culture and nationality was severe. As Hitler said to Jewish Communists: We know if we fail our heads will roll in the sand…’ There can be no doubt that was true. The purge of German nationalists would undoubtedly have amounted to millions and perhaps tens of millions. The Jewish offensive against the Germans actually began with their triumph over the Russians in the October Revolution of ‘17. They were waging asymmetrical war from then until the extermination camps reduced their numbers.

Their progress in the US was delayed over the years of the Republican Interregnum from 1921-1933. With the return of Wilsonian policies in 1933 when Roosevelt seized control the Jews flooded back into DC along with their Communist allies. Jews immediately called for boycotts and sanctions against Germany as they enlisted the might of the US in their cause.

Roosevelt accepting Jewish and Communist collectivism quickly enacted laws to empower his side. Using that power the Jews renewed their attack on Ford. Two Judeo-Communist assaults were made on Ford’s River Rouge plant. The paramilitaries had every intention of smashing Fords machines and probably firing the plant to put him out of business. Of course they disguised their assault as a labor disagreement.

As Ford had never had labor disturbances before Roosevelt’s seizure of the government he had no apprehensions about their intent. In the first assault Ford’s lieutenant Harry Bennett amiably went out to talk with the marchers where he was savagely beaten to the ground. Bennett learned his lesson.

In the second assault the so-called Battle of the Overpass Bennett and his men Marched up to the UAW’s Walter Reuther and Frankensteen and began to kick ass. His revenge, of course was reported as mere brutality. The first offense against him was ignored.

The Jewish agitation against Germany was so obvious that with unusual alacrity in 1935 Congress passed strict neutrality legislation. Years before Pearl Harbor, nearly in ‘42, Roosevelt set about circumventing the neutrality laws with all kinds of dodges while preparing for war. Later in the decade Churchill joined Jewish efforts to get Roosevelt into the coming war as he realized that England was incapable of defending itself alone.

Thus in 1940 Roosevelt forced a peace time draft through Congress. This clearly indicated that he intended war. He further violated any concept of neutrality by extending the US territorial waters into mid-Atlantic Ocean beyond Iceland. It was near that island that the Destroyer Reuben James was sunk by a U-boat months before the US entered the European War.

Traditionally the tenure of a president was limited to two terms thus Roosevelt would be expected to vacate the office in 1941. This however did not suit Roosevelt’s plans. If he left office his specific internationalist plans for a United Nations wouldn’t be realized and the whole Wilsonian program would not be realized to his desires.

Resistance to his run for a third term could be expected to be intense while there was a reasonable chance that he would fail. The chicanery of both conventions in 1940 is well known. The most remarkable thing is the Republican nomination of the life long Democrat Wendell Willkie whose views coincided almost exactly with Roosevelt’s thus being completely opposite to the America Firsters and Republicans in general. In fact, Willkie threw the election to Roosevelt.

It would seem then that there was collusion between Willkie and Roosevelt as well as between Roosevelt and traitors within the Republican Party. Willkie was nominated as the Republican candidate and as such then threw the election to Roosevelt making his election inevitable. Not since Jack Johnson lay down in Havana was there a more surprising result.

Roosevelt was swept into office; within the year the US was at war on two fronts. Roosevelt had provoked the Japanese into an attack on Hawaii in the Pacific while on the Atlantic side Hitler was treaty bound to declare war on the US although why he honored the treaty without waiting for the Japanese to honor their agreement to undertake their promised Northern strategy of attacking the Soviets from the East seems incredible. When the Japanese followed their Southern strategy releasing Stalin’s Siberian armies Hitler’s fate was sealed.

And so, despite all Roosevelt’s public promises to the contrary American boys were involved in not one but two foreign wars.

Part II will review the Republican Interregnum under the Presidents Harding, Coolidge and Hoover from 1921-33 including the years 1919 and 1920.


Henry Ford And The Aaron Sapiro Case

Part VII


R.E. Prindle


 Whose Heaven On Earth?

 Now let’s examine the apparent expectations of the two men, Henry Ford and Aaron Sapiro in light of their ethnic backgrounds and/or religious outlook, what the famed Jewish psychologist would call group psychology.  How were their attitudes and opinions conditioned by their respective ethnic educations?

The leading characteristic of the Jews is that their approach is based on domination, the need to be Top Dog ‘by any means necessary.’  While I am not aware of Ford’s religious beliefs, if any, he reflects a Christian-American point of view, that is to say he considered service the highest virtue.  Therefore he violated all established business practices by offering the highest value for the lowest price.

In that light then Ford founded his company and conducted its business on the basis of service, possibly what the Communists mean by ‘social justice.’  In constrast Sapiro exploited the farmers he claimed to represent extorting the highest fee for little value while aggrandized his persona.  Ford created benefits for the many in everything he did including more than doubling the wage rate.

The Great Henry Ford

The Great Henry Ford

Just as Sapiro’s actions were based on his religion or ethnic collective, Ford’s activities were based on Christian-American ideals.  Americanism could be placed on the same religious level as Judaism while Ford was busy developing his own variant of Christian-Americanism.  It seems to have been his intent to reform the socio-economic basis of American life as a sort of American religion with himself as its prophet.

The clash between Ford and Sapiro was essentially ‘religious.’  As Miss Woeste points out Ford had his own vision of the farmer’s well fare based on service which clashed with Sapiro’s vision of dominance.

Ford had been a farmer while Sapiro never was.

Now, if one considers the psychological yearnings of the Ford Plan and those of the Sapiro Plan one has something like this:  Ford’s Plan was essentially utopian in which he sought to create a heaven on earth for everyone while Sapiro’s Jewish Plan was millennial with the intent of creating a heaven on earth for Jews, they dominating everyone else.

Ford, believing he had the industrial key for bettering conditions for all was busy reforming every institution he came into contact with from industrial conditions to hospital care to electricity generation, not to mention his railroad.  He was, like many of his generation, including W.K. Kellogg and his corn flakes and Bernarr Macfadden and his juice bars,  interested in finding the miracle food, and he thought he may have found it one time in soy beans.  In fact it was nearly a miracle bean.  Ford established the bean as a premier American crop which had more than a little to do with aiding the farmer.

Sapiro’s notion can be seen in this photograph where he stands at the head of a group of Canadian farmers symbolically their master.

Sapiro In Alberta

Sapiro In Alberta

As should be clear the Jewish War Against Ford was long standing before the Independent articles.  Jewish animosity toward  him began with the five dollar day and added to by the six  dollar day and eight hour five day week improvements.

Ford in a religious sense was working miracles that threatened to overturn the Jewish system.  If Ford were able to establish his earthly utopia that would obviate the Jewish millennium.  It will be remembered that the Jews believed the advent of the millennium was imminent at the time so Ford was construed as a very dangerous threat to the Jewish millennium as well as the Communist Revolution in which the Jews were also heavily involved.

Thus when the Communists attacked Ford plants in the thirties, the Jews through Roosevelt were undermining his authority through legislation finally forcing a union on him in 1942.

Ford was quite right to challenge Sapiro.  It would be nice if Ford or Uwayne State published the Ford Sapiro articles for all of us to study.  While Miss Woeste laughs at them claiming them full of misrepresentations we are obligated to either take or reject her word for it.  Uncharacteristically as a historian she offers no examples.

For instance what was Sapiro’s relationship to Albert Lasker and Bernard Baruch?  What publicity was Lasker, as a publicist, giving Sapiro?  How was he represented in the press?  If he was, what kind of advice was the commodity expert Baruch giving Sapiro?

Are we to believe the articles lie when they say Sapiro was involved with these men?  It just doesn’t seem reasonable or if not Miss Woeste might have given examples and refuted them.  Her charges don’t have to be insinuated.  After all, while not a historian, she is a lawyer.

That UStanford, one of the most prestigious universities in these United States, would imply that they accept Miss Woeste is a credible scholar leads me to ask the question, Why?

Henry Ford And The Aaron Sapiro Case

Part VI


R.E. Prindle

The Vampire Rises

J' accuse, J' accuse, J' accuse

J’ accuse, J’ accuse, J’ accuse

Woeste, Victoria Saker:  Henry Ford’s War On Jews And The Legal Battle Against Hate Speech, 2012, UStanford Press.

Let’s take a moment to look at the aftermath of this puzzle.  Miss Woeste in her polemic of the forged apology of Henry Ford and financial arrangements extorted from Ford in the amount of a couple million dollars by Louis Marshall, the AJC and Aaron Sapiro laughs off the cash as just a couple days income for Ford.  Trifling enough in Miss Woeste’s eyes but nothing compared to the hundreds of millions that followed in the thirties, forties and apparently up to the present.

The compensation the Jews extort for no injury whatsoever are drawn out to the farthest extreme.  A recent case in point is that of the designer John Galliano in France.  Galliano had jobs bringing in over a hundred millions of dollars over a ten year period.  This was enough to excite the cupidity of the Jews who believed that such a large amount of cash would be better in Jewish hands.  The question then was how to get Galliano fired and one of their own put in his place.

Not much of a problem, actually.  Ever heard of that cash cow called anti-Semitism?  In the US and Europe over the last few decades dozens of people have been fired whose future income was perhaps worth billions of dollars combined.  A mere comment that neither affected or damaged any one, possibly made in private,  has been enough to get individuals blacklisted forever, completely destroying their social standing and hence self-respect.  Cruel and unjust beyond belief.

Galliano who was addicted to stimulants while having private opinions to which everyone is entitled but which expressed in public can be used against you to deprive you of fabulous incomes was lured into a bar to have a few drinks to loosen his tongue.

While quietly conversing with his putative friend he was insulted by some Jewish patrons at an adjacent table.  Not coincidentally a photographer was handy to film the exchange as ‘proof.’  Even more oddly another photographer behind the first one was there to record the filming of the exchange.  At no time during the exchange were Galliano’s tormentors shown.

If the whole exchange was filmed the sequence was edited down to a few remarks none of which were particularly offensive even though elicited by his tormentors.  The tort delivered by the reviling Jews was retorted calmly and dismissively by Galliano.

The Jews then blew this setup into a casus bellus.  The reaction against Galliano was immediate, one almost might think planned ahead.  He was fired from all his jobs in the fashion industry and thrown into Coventry.  The last I read he was abasing himself before the Jews claiming he wanted to convert to Judaism.  Needless to say a Jew got his very lucrative employment.

Henry Ford was not such a pushover nor were the Jews so well organized.  During his lifetime Ford was unrepentant nor did he think he had anything to repent however his son Edsel and his grandson Henry II were pushovers.  I don’t know what pressures Henry II was subjected to but he was an absolute embarrassment.

Of course it is difficult to figure out what the Jews think Henry Ford did.  The restrictive anti-immigration laws were passed in 1921 to 1924 effectively eliminating further Jewish immigration.  Prior to the War the Jews had been poised to transfer the whole European Jewish population to the US through Galveston and New Orleans.  Those ports of entry were chosen to deflect from attention a massive importation through New York City.

The War aborted that plan in 1914.  However the plan was revived and in the last stages of organization when the 1921 immigration bill closed that down as immigration was severely restricted.

It is possible that the Jews blamed the Independent articles on turning attention to them and perhaps hastening the legislation through.  In that case by Jewish thinking Ford would have thwarted their plans subsequently being partially responsible for the Jewish holocaust as otherwise the whole tribe would have been safely out of the way of WWII.

Although the Jews believe the articles collected into the International Jew were responsible for the rise of anti-Semitism in Germany that is absolute nonsense.  Europeans needed no help from Ford on that score.  Hitler and the Nazis did not need Henry Ford to influence their thinking on the Jews.  Besides the articles which expose Jewish machinations in the US have little if any relevance to Europe.  No matter what any Nazi may have said I doubt if they could even understand the articles.  How many of them would even know who Benedict Arnold was and his relationship to eighteenth century Jews in the US.

In addition, in the United States according to the Jewish Year Book the thirties had very little ‘anti-Semitic’ incidences so whatever they may claim Ford’s articles influenced no one.

Beyond the fact that Jews like no criticism only applause, I can’t understand why Ford’s articles disturbed them so.  Sapiro himself appeared to be into self-aggrandizement and looting the farmers.

Nevertheless the Jews never forgive or forget.  You could ask the Amalekites about that but unfortunately the Jews exterminated them root and branch.  So while Ford was attacked by Labor, the Communists and FDR in the thirties and WWII years they were unable to extract any more millions.  Ford died in 1947 leaving Henry II ready for fleecing.  The lamb delivered for the sacrifice and this time no god stayed the hand of Abraham.

With the coming of the Roosevelt administration the Jews came flooding back into DC which doubled or tripled their power including not only to bedevil Ford but to cause him real harm.  The Roosevelt administration was essentially a continuation of the Wilson government, which had been heavily influenced by Jewish participation if not dominated by it.

Both Franklin and Eleanor had close ties with the Jews dating back to pre-WWI years with heavy involvement in the settlement house period.  The Jews then were influential in labor legislation all of which enfranchised labor while hamstringing management.   Thus both laws and executive orders were used in the attempt to compel Ford to do the Jewish will.

By 1940 then the constant legal and extra-legal, that is criminal, pounding was beginning to wear Ford down.  Of course by 1940 Ford was 77 years old while having suffered two strokes, the second probably reducing his mental capacity significantly.  Even then outside pressures did not bring him down.  It brought Edsel and Henry II down but not Henry. It also brought Henry’s wife down.  Edsel caved while Henry’s wife threatened to leave him if he didn’t bow to the Jews’ will.  As Ford told Sorenson, his chief engineer:  What could I do?

Ford turned the company over to Henry II in 1943 while he died in 1947.  As Henry II learned to his dismay there was no penance that could satisfy the Jews.  Let us be clear, Henry Ford’s so called war on the Jews was in response to economic attack.  It was self-defense.  Henry Ford was a tough nut  impossible to crack; Henry Ford II was a rollover pansy who emasculated himself and handed his genitals over on a platter.  Brings tears to your eyes to record it.

Much of the following information is taken from David L. Lewis’ The Public Image of Henry Ford, pp.154-65 of the UWayne State Press paperback edition of 1988.

One of the little known stories of WWII was the Alien Properties division’s confiscation of German and Japanese properties.  The division was headed by the Jew David Bazelon.  People usually associate the confiscated properties with the Japanese as more sympathy can be generated for them than the Germans but Japanese holdings were miniscule compared to the immense riches taken from the German with no thought of compensation then or later.

These properties, probably worth trillions in today’s dollars were sold for a pittance, a fraction of a penny on the dollar.  David Bazelon was a member of what author Gus Russo calls the Chicago Supermob of criminals.  As a member of the Jewish and Sicilian Outfit he sold the Japanese assets to Sicilians and Jews while disposing of the really valuable German assets to his Jews making many a many fortune for them.

One asset that got away was the General Aniline and Film Corporation, GAF.  It would be a mistake to think that wise heads didn’t see what was coming with the war and plan to benefit from it.  Thus General Aniline was transferred to the Rockefeller’s covertly as the war began.  After the war when GAF was on the block for fourteen million or less Rockefeller laid claim as its own asset rescuing it from sale by Bazelon for a joke price.  Of course Rockefeller was then accused of ‘trading with the enemy.’

GAF was tied up in legislation while the ridiculous charges of trading with the enemy were fought by Rockefeller.  When the legal affairs were cleared up at the end of the fifties GAF was sold for a little less than 400 million 1950s dollars.  Forty billion or so today.

The interesting thing is that in 1940 Edsel Ford was a shareholder of considerable size in GAF.  In the contest between the detestable Walter Reuther and his fiefdom of the United Auto Workers Reuther insisted that Edsel resign his directorship of GAF and sell his shares.  A strange demand from a labor organization to an executive of a firm.  Edsel did sell at a heavy loss to himself.  Had he kept the shares and passed them to his son, Henry II,  the son would have realized many millions less than two decades later.

Just as the Rockefellers prepared by protecting GAF from disposal after the war so it is possible that the Jews realized the immense opportunity presenting itself tried and succeeded in removing the Fords from any post war claims.  Things really do get involved, don’t they?

After the War with Henry II in charge the Jews bled the Fords white like a giant vampire which they are continuing to this day.

Remembering Henry Ford the Jews moved in to milk Henry II, Ford Motors and the fabulously endowed Ford Foundation.

To add a little substance to the Jewish relationship to the auto industry I am going to make a lengthy quote from Stephen Birmingham’s Our Crowd:  The Great Jewish Families Of New York, 1967, Harper & Row, pp. 379-380.

J&W Seligman & Company, though it had been first eclipsed by Kuhn, Loeb and next, by the Lehmans- to whom the Seligmans sold their building- still managed to produce moments of fiscal excitement.  In 1910 Joseph Seligman’s ancient rival, J.P. Morgan, was an old man who increasingly allowed others to make his decisions and handle his affairs, and one of those was George W. Perkins, who laughed out loud  when a “visionary nitwit” named Will Durant told him that there would one day be as many as fifty thousand automobiles on the roads of America.  Shouting “Impossible!” Perkins threw Durant out of the office.  This was too bad for Morgan because Durant lowered his sights and approached the Seligmans.

Durant’s burgeoning General Motors Corporation had already absorbed a number of individual companies- Buick, Oldsmobile, Cadillac, and some twenty others.  But even the Seligmans, perhaps because they knew they had a Morgan reject, were initially wary.  They agreed to take on Durant, but on staggeringly stiff terms.  In return for underwriting $15 million worth of Durant GM notes, the bankers demanded that Durant put up all his company’s assets as security, in addition to giving control of his board to the Seligman group.  Durant also wanted $2.5 million cash, and for this the Seligmans made him put up $4.5 million worth of stock as security and charged him 6% interest for five years.  As an indication of how shaky a venture Durant’s was considered to be, the lawyers who drew up the papers on the deal cut their normal fee to less than half, in order to get cash and not stock for their fee.

This was in 1910.  Three years later, Albert Strauss, who, with his brother Frederick had been one of the first non-family Seligman partners and who had gone on the board of General Motors, was offered $30 a share for his General Motors common stock.  Strauss declined to sell, and the Seligmans held on to theirs.  By the war’s end in 1919, the original GM common was selling for $850 a share.

The house of Morgan’s less than clairvoyant appraisal of the automobile industry is often given as the reason why the Ford Motor Company for so many years refused to go public.  Motor stocks of the period were considered so speculative that “Only Jewish banks will handle them,” and this would not have suited Henry Ford, Sr., a virulent anti-Semite.  Nevertheless, the leading gentile banker, Morgan, would not see Ford.  It was in the Dearborn, Michigan Independent, which Ford controlled, that he caused to be published for the first time in America the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, the spurious document purportedly prepared by an international conference of Jews and Freemasons, outlining their plan to take over the world….As a result of this, it was many years before most Jews would buy a Ford car.

And yet, after Henry Ford’s death, it was a Jewish bank, Goldman, Sachs & Company, which first brought out Ford stock and under the guiding genius of Sidney Weinberg, devised the intricate construction of the Ford Foundation.  Today Weinberg is the chief financial advisor to Henry Ford II, and is on the board of the Ford Motor Company.  The ironies of high finance never cease.  Where great money is to be made, much can be forgiven.

Rather Birmingham should have said where the business could be easily misappropriated, the desire of vengeance could not be resisted.  Indeed, it was sought.  Goldman, Sachs took Ford public!  How many tens of millions was that worth that might have gone to a goy firm.  Forgiven my ass.

As can readily be seen shortly after Henry’s death the Jews were effectively in control of Ford Motors and the Ford Foundation the latter alone being worth three billion dollars in the sixties.  Henry Ford by his articles in the Dearborn Independent gave the Jews a gift that kept on giving.  Nor has the story yet been told.  Get ready.

It is difficult for me to understand the concern the Fords gave to the Jews.  Whatever harm they could have done to Ford was nothing compared to the harm Ford did himself by failing to keep abreast of development in automobiles so that by the time he shut down in 1927 to retool he sacrificed a half of 50% of the market during that period to reopen with a 50% loss of his previous share to about 25% slightly less actually which turned out to be the new Ford share through the fifties.

Ford stumbled badly through the thirties by once again taking too much time to adjust to changing conditions.  While it may be true that Jews refused to buy Fords they were 4% or less of the total market while Ford could have hoped for no better than 25% of the 4%.  When Mercedes began being sold in the US post-WWII Jews almost universally swore they would never buy a German car.  The didn’t stop Mercedes from becoming the best selling luxury car topping the GM Cadillac.

There were undoubtedly a significant number of goys out there willing to buy a Ford just to spite the Jews negating their influence.  When I was growing up in the forties and fifties I actually had no knowledge of Jews except that they existed and I never heard any reference to a Ford-Jew feud.  So, certainly post-WWII the issue had been forgotten except by the Fords and the Jews.

Nevertheless the Fords kept on paying and paying and paying while the Jews kept on collecting and collecting and collecting, forever with their hand out.  And we are talking hundreds and hundreds of millions of 1950 dollars, billions in today’s dollars.  One wonders where they all went.

Not counting Edsel’s strange GAF transaction Ford Motors spent hundreds of thousands of dollars during WWII when it had no cars to sell advertising, essentially funding, hundreds of Jewish publications across the country.  As Lewis says the publications were selected by Nathan Seidman of  Inter-Racial Press of America, Inc.

Ford II in 1951 gave $1,000,000 to the National Conference of Christians and Jews for a new building.

In 1956 Ford Motors appointed a Jew, Sidney Weinberg to the board of directors.

Even more astonishing, Lewis,   p. 155:

…the company retained a Jewish friend, Detroit attorney, Alfred A. May, a fellow alumnus of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, to advise the firm on its relations with the Jewish Community.  For three decades May’s recommendations have played an important part in many of Ford’s decisions affecting Jews- from lending courtesy cars to Jewish organizations, advertising in Jewish newspapers and banquet programs, and framing a reply to the charges that the company underemployed Jews to deciding how much money should be given to Jewish causes and determining the degree and kind of assistance to be extended to the State of Israel and Israeli institutions.  Most of May’s work has been conducted behind the scenes.  He advises, Ford acts.  Occasionally, however, May negotiates directly with Jewish organizations on Ford’s behalf.  But because many leading Jews have come to regard the attorney as an apologist for the Ford Company, his influence within the Jewish Community has declined over the years.  In the late 1940s, the Ford Companies also retained rabbis in Detroit, Chicago, New York, and other large centers of Jewish populations to assist in overcoming its reputation for anti-Semitism.

Sweet deal that.

The word retains means all these people were paid large sums for a sinecure, they had no duties or function.

Thus not only were the Jews bleeding Germany and the United States white, Ford spent huge in the hope of obtaining Jewish good will when none was forthcoming.   Would you have sacrificed easy money by extending good will?  I have my doubts.

I don’t know which to condemn more, the Jews for being vampire blood suckers or the Fords for offering their throat.  Remember the Amalekites; the Jews never forgive or forget even when they cause their own problem.

As further compensation the Fords are due to appoint a Jew as president of the company.  Good luck.

If you think the Fords were generous to include a foreign country Israel and its institutions when Israel didn’t even exist during the twenties, read this.

In an increasingly global marketplace in which Israel represents a miniscule percentage of Ford sales, Ford sacrificed the entire Middle East market of the Arab world to gratify Jewish vanity.  Per Lewis Israel was extorting funds from Ford for its Weizmann Institute of  Science, Hebrew University, Technion and Henry Ford’s personal gifts to the United Jewish Appeal.

The Arabs then extorted an equal sum for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees.  Not that the oil rich Arab League couldn’t have handled that situation for itself.

American Jews and Israeli’s were also demanding that Ford set up a dealer assembly plant for Israel.  The Arab League objected asking Ford not to do it unless they wanted their North African operation shut down.  The Jews counter demanded.  Ford was willing to sacrifice annual sales of from 20-22K units for less than 2000 sales in Israel which they did.

In addition Ford plants in North Africa worth 60 million dollars were shuttered as Ford was ejected from the market only to be replaced by General Motors.  Within three years the company sacrificed 200 million dollars and counting to appease the Jews.

Truly a case of the tail wagging the dog.  Israel wasn’t even a viable State existing only on the dole from Germany, the US and…Ford.

One imagines that Aaron Sapiro and Louis Marshall are laughing their asses off down there among the flames while Henry Ford can probably only manage a wry smile up there in the land beyond the sun.

The Jews have every right to consider Aaron Sapiro as St. Aaron Sapiro.  Who can be credited with doing more for The People than he?

Henry Ford And The Aaron Sapiro Case

zzHenry FordHenry Ford

Woeste, Victoria Saker:  Henry Ford’s War On Jews And The Legal Battle Against Hate Speech, 2012, UStanford  Press.

While Miss Woeste’s main concern in her historical polemic seems to be the struggle to stem criticism of Jewish activities otherwise known as ‘hate’ speech one wonders if she has even read any of Henry Ford’s three autobiographies.

Yet in Ford’s first auto, My Life And Work, he clearly lays out what he is doing and why.  Miss Woeste incorporates none of this in her polemic or even attempts to analyze Ford’s motives instead belittling and willfully misinterpreting what he does.

The fact is that Ford was one of the top three admired men of America.  Nothing built his reputation so much as his doubling the wages of his workmen which made them aristocrats among labor.  Actually the increase was more than a doubling for the least skilled laborers at five dollars a day while the more skilled tasks earned commensurately more, six, seven, eight dollars and more. Ford workers then were comparatively much better off than other workers in Detroit and the nation.

Miss Woeste belittles this by writing that the workers were paid at the two fifty rate with the differential being paid at the end of the year.  This is untrue.  If Miss Woeste had read Ford’s 1922 auto she would have read that the full amount was paid as part of the worker’s bi-weekly pay.  She does reference David L. Lewis’ The Public Image Of Henry Ford in which she would have read the same thing.

If she willfully falsified the information then her credibility is definitely destroyed.  If she hadn’t read whatever she did read carefully or just assumed that her way was the way Ford would have done it then her scholarship is seriously compromised.

In any event since her work is of an uncompromised prejudiced attempt to build up her Jews while discrediting Ford it has little scholarly value.

If she had read Ford’s my life and work then she would have learned why he was exposing the machinations of the Jews.  His explanation is contained in Chapter VIII of My Life And Work entitled ‘Things In General’ p. 250:

The work which we describe as Studies In The Jewish Question and which is variously described by antagonists as ‘the Jewish campaign,’ the attack on the Jews,’ ‘the anti-Semitic pogrom’ and so forth needs no explanation to those who have followed it.  Its motives and purposes must be judged by the work itself.  It is offered as a contribution to a question which deeply affects the country, a question which is racial at its source, and which concerns influences and ideals rather than persons.  Our statements must be judged by candid readers who are intelligent enough to lay our words alongside life as they are able to observe it.  If our words and their observations agree, the case is made.  It is perfectly silly to damn us before our statement has been shown   baseless or reckless.  The first item to be considered is the truth of what we have set forth.  And that is primarily the item which our critics choose to evade.

Readers of our articles will see at once that we are not activated by any kind of prejudices, except it may be a prejudice in favour of the principles which have made our civilization.  There had been observed in this country certain strains of influence which were causing a marked deteriorization of our literature, amusements, and social conduct; business was departing from its oldtime  substantial soundness; a general letting down of standards was felt everywhere.  It was not the robust coarseness of the white man, the rude indelicacy say, of Shakespeare’s characters,  but a nasty Orientalism which has insidiously affected every channel of expression and to such an extent that it was time to challenge it.  The fact that these influences were traceable  to one racial source is a fact to be reckoned with, not by us only, but by the intelligent people of the race in question.  It is entirely creditable to them steps have been taken by them  to remove their protection from the most flagrant violators of American hospitality, but there is still room to discard outworn ideals of racial superiority maintained by economic or intellectually subversive warfare upon Christian society.

Our work does not pretend to say the last word on the Jew in America.  It says only the word which describes his obvious impress on the country.  When that impress is changed, the report of it can be changed.  For the present, then, the question is wholly in the Jews’ hands.  If they are as wise as they claim to be, they will labor to make Jews Americans, instead of laboring to make Americans Jewish.  The genius of the United States of America is Christian in the broadest sense, and its destiny is to remain Christian.  This carries no sectarian meaning with it, but relates to a basic principle which differs from other principles in that it provides for liberty with morality, and pledges society to a code of relations based on fundamental Christian conceptions of human rights and duties.

As for prejudice or hatred against persons, that is neither American nor Christian.  Our opposition is only to ideas, false ideas, which are sapping the moral stamina of the people.  These ideas proceed from easily identifiable sources.  They are promulgated by easily discoverable methods; and they are controlled by mere exposure.  We have simply used the method of exposure.  When the people learn to identify the source and nature of the influence swirling around them it is sufficient.  Let the American people once understand that it is not natural degeneracy but subversion that affects us, and they are safe.  The explanation is the cure.

This work was taken up without personal motives.  When it reached a stage where we believed the American people could grasp the key, we let it rest for the time.  Our enemies say that we began it for revenge and that we laid it down in fear.  Time will show that our critics are merely dealing in evasion because they dare not tackle the main question.  Time will also show that we are better friends to the Jews’ best interests than are those who praise them to their faces and criticize them behind their backs.

One can say that Miss Woeste claiming to represent all her people, every one without exception, dares not grapple with the facts still.  In fact she misrepresents them.  Nor has the attitude changed.  To quote Gerald L.K. Smith who was a witness:  ( )

The moment the manuscripts dealing with the Jewish problem reached the public a terrific howl went up from official Jewry.  If I were to summarize the campaign of reprisal and abuse which was carried on against Mr. Ford and his Company, this summary alone would require a book.  Every instrument of torture and abuse which could be imagined was carried on against Mr. Ford — smear, character assassination, ridicule, physical threat, boycott.  The pressure was constant, consistent and endless.  The most powerful and enigmatic pressures imaginable were brought to bear on Mr. Ford to stop the publication of ‘’The International Jew.’’  Finally the order came through to cease publication and to destroy the copies which were available.  Jews and others went into the bookstores and bought and destroyed all copies and to steal the report out of the libraries.  This made the book so rare and unfindable that it became a collector’s item.

Just as Ford was blasted in the 1920s so is he now as Miss Woeste’s polemic attests.  Yet neither then nor now with Miss Woeste as an example were facts employed.

Ford wrote, actually dictated, three auto-biographies in his lifetime.  Perhaps I am doing Miss Woeste a small injustice in doubting  that she ever read them but if she has what she read doesn’t appear in her polemic.

For some strange reason she includes a rather detailed account of a blood libel trial in Russia called the Beilis Affair.  Neither Ford nor Sapiro had anything to do with the Beilis case.  What purpose does bringing it up serve?

She interjects another detailed account of the Leo Frank murder case in Atlanta, Georgia.  True both Beilis and Frank were Jews but nothing in these two accounts pertains in any way to the Sapiro charges against Ford.  How is the Ford trial affected by them?   Miss Woeste demurs to explain.

In his 1922 auto published just after the first series of articles in which Ford gives valid reasons for publishing the Independent articles Ford also discusses in a number of places his views of the farm situation.  One would think Miss Woeste might quote them giving us some idea of what Ford did think contra Sapiro.

We don’t even get an account of exactly what Sapiro was doing or thought he was doing.  We have no idea of the results of his activities.

Sapiro’s activities were in the public sphere hence open to review and criticism.  Having read the book twice I can’t tell you anything about Sapiro’s plan, that was even known as the Sapiro Plan, according to Miss Woeste.

There were other cooperative plans.  How did they function and how did Sapiro differ from them and better them as Miss Woeste claims.  Nothing.  Instead we are told this was the first hate speech trial and Louis Marshall sabotaged it.  Lewis Marshall was one of the Jews’ own.

We weren’t even given any examples of Ford’s hate speech to judge, just told he did it.  Not even something like (Expletive deleted) the Jews.  What were the hateful comments Ford made?  Why was Ford even concerned about Sapiro’s activities unless he wasn’t doing anything for the farmers while collecting exorbitant fees, which he was.

Well, we’ll never learn from reading Henry Ford’s War On Jews.  We won’t even really learn that much about the war.  Very little substance there also.

What we do learn the most about is the Jewish attempt to turn the trial from a critique of Sapiro’s activities that might have had some similarities to fraud or the long con game to the irrelevant one of Ford purposely attempting to defame Jews rather than expose them.

Personally I don’t find Miss Woeste proving one or the other.

I don’t even know why she wrote this book, to expose this example of the waste of a court’s time, I guess.

Aaron Sapiro Takes On Henry Ford For Profit

Woeste, Victoria Saker:  Henry Ford’s War On The Jews And The Legal Battle Against Hate Speech, 2012, Stanford University Press

The remarkable thing about Jews is that they think Aryans don’t have the intelligence to analyze their activities.  To my mind Aryans are analytical geniuses.  Who else could have or did create Chemistry through the analysis of complete intangibles.  Neither the Jews nor any other people had anything to do with Chemistry or the development of any of  the other scientific disciplines.  Yet the Jews are there to take the credit while claiming to be more intelligent than Aryans.

What other people have ever weighed the invisible carbon atom?  What other people have ever determined the distance from the Earth to the Sun, the speed of light?

What other people organized the sciences, the social sciences, psychology?  Do the Jews believe that the men who could resolve those seeming impossibilities  are not  able to scan the history of  the Jewish people and not understand their motives and methods?  Are all the historians and people who have explained those methods and motives truly wrong, stupid, malignant or…anti-Semites?  Of course not.  The truth is plain to see.

Do the Jews believe that men like Henry Ford who could create from scratch huge industrial organizations actually be blind to what was going on before their eyes?  I hope not.  Do they believe that they didn’t give Henry Ford reasons to expose their machinations?  I don’t think so.  I think that they think they are magicians and hypnotists who can make you see what isn’t there and deny what is.

Let us search the historical memory of recent times, that is post-French Revolution, to see if we can show what Henry Ford and his times saw.  In 1843 the small Jewish community in the US founded the Order Of The B’nai B’rith.  The order went international.  In 1895 Sigmund Freud joined the Vienna lodge to which he belonged for the remainder of his life.  The B’nai B’rith was international.  Psycho-analysis was international.

In 1860 in France the Alliance Israelite Universelle, an international organization, was founded to guard and promote Jewish interests around the world, that included Czarist Russia.   In 1895 when world wide prospects could be better controlled from the United State the AIU was moved to New York City under the guidance of Jacob Schiff.  Schiff immediately produced results by using the 200 million dollars in the cash assets of the Equitable Assurance Co. to finance the Japanese in their war against Czarist Russia.  At the same time Jewish bankers refused to make loans to Russia.  This is coordinated international activity.

The Jews had been warring with Russia for nearly a hundred years.  From their base in NYC they caused the US to sever diplomatic relations with Russia in 1910.

In 1906 the Alliance Israelite Universelle was transformed into the American Jewish Committee the governing agency of the Jewish world government with Schiff as President and Louis Marshall as Secretary of State.  In 1913 when the socialist Woodrow Wilson became president Jews flooded into DC while B’nai B’rith founded its terrorist enforcement agency the Anti-Defamation League.  Functioning in a para-military manner the League began terrorizing anyone they deemed anti-Semites, the first step in shutting down freedom of speech.  The ground work for the legalization of the concept of ‘hate’ speech was laid.

In 1917 Jews established the NAACP to further destabilize Aryan society.

Now, sometime after the collapse of Sabbatai Zevi as the latest  Jewish messiah in the seventeenth century the Rabbis decided that there was to be no future for individual messiahs but that the whole Jewish people would act as their own messiah to bring about the millennium.  The tabs set for the Jewish Revolution were 1913 to 1928 hence the furious Jewish activity during those years.

This was the situation that Ford saw.  In 1914 came the Great War, WWI, the most destructive war on European manhood that could possibly be imagined.  There were many who believe the war was engineered by the Jews.

Henry Ford, a farm boy from humble origins had spent his life trying to invent an automobile.  In 1908 he succeeded, creating his Model T, a functional inexpensive car available to the multitudes not only the wealthy.  By 1914 he become perhaps the richest man in the US.  He was in a position to make his mark on the world.  He did believe he had found a universal principle to bring on the millennium.

There is always a certain exhilaration to success.  It always goes to your head to some extent no matter how hard you try to keep your balance.  Convinced that he had found a universal rule to money making, that of lowering prices to increase volume, Ford shared his success with his work force by doubling their wages in 1914.  This deed brought him unmeasured renown.  It also aroused the envy of the Jews who thought the role of messiah was theirs.

When the Great War began, then, it was widely assumed that the US would be forced in.  At that point preparedness became an issue.  To prepare the country for the inevitable entry by arming.  A large segment of the population led by the fatuous Teddy Roosevelt wanted to arm in preparation while many others led by Woodrow Wilson procrastinated.  Still others thought the war could negotiated to a halt, heeding the rule of reason so to speak.  Ford was a peacenik.  Inflamed by his notoriety  and confidence in his abilities to perform wonders he ran full page advertisements in NYC papers and elsewhere proclaiming his beliefs.

A Jewish woman by the name of Rosika Schwimmer showed up on his doorstep to induce him to travel to Europe to negotiate an end to the war.  Ford stepped into the trap.  This was his first contact with ‘international’ Jews.  Ford chartered a ship, he had the ways and means as well as intent, and invited many notables to take a free ride to Europe to talk things over with the various combatants.

While the idea wasn’t as preposterous in the context of the times as it sounds now, the more solid citizens declined the offer while the cranks and crazies and certain Jews signed on.  Chief among the Jews were Rosa Schwimmer and a key member of the American Jewish Committee the propagandist Herman Bernstein.  Bernstein wrote several tracts for the American Jewish Committee.  Needless to say Ford’s Peace trip was botched shortly after taking to sea so that upon docking in Norway Ford returned home.

Ford’s side of the story was that a couple days out Miss Schwimmer and AJC agent Herman Bernstein took Ford aside explaining the facts of the matter to him.  As they explained it the Jews were in control of the situation through international linkages and that Ford was wasting his time as Jews were the only people who could stop the war.  Schwimmer and Bernstein of course denied Ford’s account.  That leaves one with the choice of believing Ford or the Jews.  I have more confidence in Ford and choose his statements.  The Jews as usual deny everything.

In point of fact, as the Czar was considered by the Jews as their great enemy, so long as Russia was one of the allies the Jews supported Germany as the enemy of their enemy rejecting any aid to the Allies.  The Jews were considered a powerful people whose assistance was courted by the Allies.  It was thus they extorted the Balfour Declaration from England.

With the February Revolution in Russia by the Mensheviks and the removal of the Czar who with his entire family was later murdered by the Jews they could turn their attention to destroying Germany replacing the Kaiser with their own as was actually done for a short time in Bavaria.  With the Czar dethroned, on April 2, 1917 Woodrow Wilson went before Congress to seek a declaration of war against Germany thus making the US the decisive factor in the defeat of the Kaiser.  First the Czar then the Kaiser.

Lenin already en route to St. Petersburg’s Finland Station arrived there on the next day April 3rd, 1917.  In October Lenin’s Bolshevik Party displaced the Mensheviks in the October Revolution quickly murdering the Czar and family.  Immediately after the Bolshevik Revolution Jacob Shiff representing the American Jewish Committee forwarded very large loans to help finance the Bolshevik Revo.  This did not go unnoticed as President Wilson commanded him to come to the White House to explain his actions.  Masters of Bullshit as always Schiff was able to placate Wilson.

None of this was secret at the time, anyone who cared could know about it.  One has to believe that after being shamed and ridiculed by Jews as he saw it in the Peace Ship episode one may be sure Ford was an attentive bystander.  The Jews as always denied everything.

Ford’s next encounter with the Jews came over the War Industries Board directives.  The Detroiters had significant differences with Wilson’s clearly socialist program.  The WIB under the direction of the Jew Bernard Baruch tried to subordinate the nation’s manufacturers to the government, actually nationalized the railroads,  in what amounted to quasi-nationalization for industry.

So by the beginning of 1918 Ford had had two very unpleasant encounters with the Jews.  If he hadn’t been suspicious of them before he was by then and especially so after January 1919 when he received a copy of the Jewish Bill Of Rights from the AJC, that is Jacob Schiff and Louis Marshall demanding his compliance to their special ‘rights.’

At the same time Ford was being sued by his investors for dividends instead he bought them out.  For the first time in life he was forced to apply to the bankers for a loan, this one into the tens of millions.  The bankers too were Jews and they pressed him for immediate repayment. Unable to meet their demands from cash reserves Ford went through a crash reorganization to convert non-essential assets into cash at which he succeeded thus retaining ownership of Ford Motors.  Another two unpleasant encounters.

In 1920 ,then, having acquired the Dearborn Independent newspaper that Ford took international he began publishing a series of articles exposing Jewish methods and motives.  None dare call it self-defense. Among the essays were three dealing with the AJC’s Jewish Bill Of Rights.  Abe Foxman of the ADL characterizes the Ford Essays this way:

The International Jew also attacked the Jews for speaking out about injustice and defending their constitutional rights.  “Jewish rights seemed to be summed up in the right to banish everything from their sight and hearing that suggests Christianity and its Founder,”  it commented.  In fact these so-called “attacks on Christianity” were reasonable Jewish objections to governmental expressions of Christianity which clearly violated the separation between church and state enshrined in the Constitution.


As the above quote indicates Foxman is intellectually dishonest.  He intentionally confuses the so-called Jewish Bill Of Rights to which Ford was objecting with the US Bill of Rights associated with the Constitution.  He knows that Ford is referring to the Jewish Bill Of Rights when Cameron writes “Jewish rights seem to be summed up in the right to banish everything from their sight and hearing that suggest Christianity or its Founder.”

The Constitution is available for all to read and ponder but the Jewish Bill of Rights has sagely been withdrawn and is nowhere to be found.  Abe, almost facetiously, recognizes this knowing that but few have ever heard of the Jewish Bill Of Rights while none of us have actually been able to read it.  He maliciously then accuses Ford of wishing to deny Jews  constitutional rights as American citizens.  An outright lie if there ever was one.

Further, Ford was telling the truth as anyone observing Jewish efforts to ban Christmas and even Halloween in schools and public places today can attest.

Abe then tries to justify specious claims by saying “these so-called “ attacks on Christianity were reasonable Jewish objections to governmental expressions of Christianity which clearly violated the separation between church and state enshrined in the constitution.

None of it!  They were expressions of the people without any reference to governmental intervention.  They were the vox populi.  Enshrined in the Constitution!  Give us a break.

Christmas in schools and public places is not clearly a governmental expression of Christianity; however what Abe probably really objects to is that it is an expression of an Aryan solstice custom with a very pagan Santa Claus as a symbol.

Lest Abe accuse me a defender of Christianity or any Semitic religion we all should know that whole Bible-Talmudic trash is total Arien Age bullshit.  We’d all be better off without it.  That would settle the church/synagogue-government Constitutional conflict wouldn’t it?  Let’s work it out together Abe.  Finish Henry’s work.

Now, the people who didn’t send the AJC questionnaire  back or did so with adverse comments were placed on a Jewish blacklist just as I have been today.  Some of my essays are republished by the ADL on their site as examples of anti-Semitism.  Who says so Abe?  You?  That’s defamation of my good name, Abe.

So, as Ford had been black listed in 1919 as an anti-Semite it follows that his retort to the tort was to begin publishing articles exposing Jewish machinations.  Tit for tat.  Turnabout is fair play.

Still Ford was portrayed as the aggressor.  A lunatic anti-Semite with a ‘hole’ in his heart against angelic defenseless Jews.

As important and central as the Jews were was there anything else happening in America that might have attracted Ford’s attention?  Well, a few things and they found their way into the vast majority of the Independent’s pages.  Coming out of the war the America of the New Era was in upheaval.  There was a seeming sharp break between 1914 and 1920.  Newspapers were becoming more sensational by the day. Bernarr Macfadden was out there.  Watch out!  As has been said ‘when the music changes the walls of the city shake.  And music was changing very rapidly.  Not only changed but become ubiquitous with the success of radio and the phonograph record.  Jazz, Hillbilly, Blues anything even classical music could be heard with the turn of a knob or crank.  And the dances!  Gone were the stately dances of Henry’s youth replaced by the Grizzly Bear, Bunny Hop, the Charleston and Black Bottom.  Nothing compared  to today’s twerking, lap dancing and other direct terpsichorean imitations of coitus.  Henry saw it coming being the prescient sort he was.  He was on the money.

Bobbed hair, skirts up to here but not quite there, Jesus!  And lawlessness fueled by prohibition!  Not quite the lawlessness of today but I doubt if anyone could have seen that coming short of Billy the Kid and the Daltons.  Ford was aghast at all the social expressions of the twenties longing for a return to the good old days just before the introduction of his Model T.

The Jews only saw a little bit of what Ford was saying and their reaction was immediate.  The ‘defenseless’ Jews struck back led by Louis Marshall.  Marshall ridiculed Ford for stating that the movies were Jewish controlled.  Such audacity on the part of Marshall.  The leading film maker at the time William Fox turned his cameras on Fords and gave Henry hell.  I find it incredible that Fox had, I read this and can’t believe it’s true, fifty percent of the market in the early twenties including for a time an exclusive on newreels with his MovieTone News.

Fox refused to use the Model T in any of his obviously numerous movies while Movie Tone News shot every accident a Ford car was in that they could find.  Oh, defenseless?, I should say so.

As an interesting aside, in the late twenties when the NYC money men were consolidating the movie industry Fox saw no need to be consolidated thus placing himself in the way of progress.  The money men destroyed him combining the rump of Fox Pictures with Twentieth Century to form Twentieth Century-Fox with no Fox in sight.  As the waters closed above him Fox had the chutzpah to ask Ford to rescue him.

It’s interesting that today’s Fox network dropped the Twentieth Century and resuscitated William Fox’s name.

The Jews then were searching anxiously for a legal excuse to bring Ford down.  This was provided in 1924 when Aaron Sapiro brought his lawsuit against Ford on very specious, one might say, nonexistent grounds.

Abe the Fox in his disingenuous way says that the International Jew did not portray Jews as individuals, but as a single minded, calculating cabal.  Apparently Abe isn’t aware that the millennium with the whole Jewish people as the messiah was being fought out at the time.  Abe is not correct as the title The International Jew indicates Ford was referring only to that cabal of Jews such as the AJC’s Jacob Schiff and Louis Marshall who were in fact functioning as part of an international government looking after the interests of Jews throughout the world.  Some few years after Ford’s forged apology the Jewish World Congress was formed adding it to the organizations who were shepherding the worldwide Jewish flock.

Ford rather fatuously divided the Jewish people into one group of regular people and the other group of international Jews while the regulars had no idea what the IJs were doing in the Jewish name.  In fact this division could have been demonstrated although all Jews went through the same education, indoctrination and conditioning so that there did exist a collective hive mind that could be relied on.  Thus when Aaron Sapiro filed his suit it became clear that the issue was not the issue of his being somehow maligned but the whole Jewish people had been also hence the need for ‘hate’ speech legislation.

One sometimes feels embarrassed by Abe Foxman’s circumlocutions.  Nothing is clearer than that Ford’s international Jews became involved in the litigation.  Louis Marshall himself forged Ford’s so-called apology and for what anybody knows signed it himself.  But, on to the litigation.


Henry Ford

Henry Ford

The account of Victoria Saker Woeste appears in the journal of  the American Bar Foundation.  The ABF defines itself as the nation’s leading research institute for the empirical study of law.  Located in Chicago it says that it is an organization dedicated to advancing justice through rigorous research on the law, legal processes, and the laws impact on society.

Nevertheless Miss Woeste begins with the sentence:  This project examines a well known event in the life of Henry Ford- a 1927 federal libel lawsuit against him and his anti-Semitic newspaper- from the perspective of the people who sought to stop him.

So at the outset Miss Woeste admits her account is biased.  So much for the empiricism of the ABF and its concern for justice.

While Miss Woeste limits her investigation to the perspective of her fellow Jews I think I can be a little more inclusive.

First, let’s put Henry Ford into perspective.  Ford was not a man of the present or the future, he was a man of the past.  His formative period ended with the perfection of the Model T.  To him the auto was a continuation of the buggy.  The first Fords were essentially self-propelled buckboards.  The Model T was meant for people to enjoy the world as it was, not as the Model T would change it.

When ‘progress’ presented the world with the New Era- the twenties- Ford rejected it completely, he didn’t like anything about it.  He tried to re-establish the past, now containing his Model T.  It should be noted in this context that the Model T did not substantially change from 1908 to 1926.

The results of unrestricted immigration apparently caught both him and the nation by surprise but he manfully tried to reconstruct his world in the pre-war image as did the nation through restriction of immigration.

The course of business propelled him then into a future as unrecognizable  to him as the New Era.  While Ford’s was not the first billion dollar company it was the first created by one man; and in the incredible short time of a mere decade.

The heading of his newspaper describes it as The International Dearborn Independent.  Ford himself had established his company as a huge international corporation represented in nearly every country on earth.  Like the British Empire Ford could say that the sun never set on his dealerships.

His was a totally vertically integrated company.  He owned mines for metals, forests and shipping companies.  His freighters could be seen out on Lake Huron bearing a huge F-O-R-D amidships.  As one exercise in efficiency his company once manufactured a completed auto from his own iron ore and own blast furnaces to the roll out of the black painted Tin Lizzie in twenty-four hours.  A mind boggling achievement.

This is an aside:  Ford has been criticized for saying when asked why he offered no other colors than black, ‘they can have any color they want so long as its black.’  Through the decades this has been considered a most arrogant statement.  However, today the only colors offered as standard by most auto companies are black or white.  You have to pay extra for any other color.  Henry should have thought of that one.  But today you can have any color you want so long as it’s black or white unless you want to fork over another thousand dollars.

When glass companies couldn’t turn out the quantities of glass he needed Ford’s technicians took over a glass company, devised a method to mass produce glass and showed the glass makers how to do it.  And the list goes on and on.  This was one amazing man.

Unfortunately as a man of the past he failed to keep up with or incorporate new advances into his Model T.  Or possibly he couldn’t add them and keep his price the lowest in the industry.  He never thought of add-ons I guess.  GM’s Chevy turned out a better cheap car than Ford although the price was higher, people began to approve of the improvements edging the Chevy closer to top sales.  By 1925 it became clear to Ford that he had to bring the Ford into a new present.  He couldn’t become a me too Chevy and just add its improvements; he had to leap frog over the Chevy.

In 1927 then he closed Ford’s doors for eight months to redesign his car.  The new Model was the most sensational auto introduction of all time.

The libel trial was artfully brought to court in 1927 as an harassed Ford was struggling to design and get the Model A into production.  He had always stretched himself too thin but the problems of the new car and the libel trial was too much for him to bear.  Thus, it was either the new Model A or the trial.  As unpleasant as it may have been Ford opted for the Model A and abandoned the trial.

Aaron Sapiro then began the suit in 1924 after the series of twenty articles in the Independent exposing his machinations appeared.

Were the articles slanderous?  No more so than any expose and the Jews were famous for writing exposes with the intent to destroy the objects of their books and articles.  In point of fact it appears that Sapiro and his associates were trying for a corner in commodities of all sorts both in the US and Canada, that is internationally.  Had they succeeded would they not have connected new world commodity markets with old world commodity markets also in the control of Jews?  It would have been foolish if they had not, wouldn’t it?  Would Aryans attempting the same thing have denied it?

I can’t believe Sapiro’s activities weren’t apparent to the interested observer.  Nor can there be any doubt that if he had succeeded in organizing the producers who would remain producers and not become administrators while Sapiro and his associates would administer the ‘co-op.’    So who was going to make the money whether crops were good or bad?

I was once a member of the UAW, the United Auto Workers.  In other words Walter Reuther and his UAW organized the commodity of unskilled labor in auto manufacturing.  Reuther and his union goons then had to be paid for their efforts.  They set their own wages and benefits to manage our commodity of labor.

We of the commodity then paid them dues withdrawn from our wages by our employer- Fisher Body of GM in this instance, which paid them to the union because we the commodity couldn’t be trusted individually  to voluntarily pay up.  They were wise in this.

Now, it only cost the union X dollars to manage our affairs.  But Reuther and his goons charged X times 4 more or less leaving them with a huge excess.  This made no sense to we of the commodity.  Adding insult to injury Reuther and his goons used this excess for their own purposes.  They made political contributions and donations according to their own prejudices that I couldn’t approve of.  Reuther himself built a lodge for himself and union execs at a very exclusive lake that we the commodity paid for but would never be allowed to use  and bought a plane to fly himself in and out.

So obviously Reuther exploited his commodity and its producers for his own benefit and that of his cronies.

Alright.  What would have been the result of Sapiro and his associates efforts?  According to Miss Woeste and her Henry Ford’s War On The Jews before the war Sapiro reported an annual income of 80,000 dollars not counting expenses.  To put that into perspective in today’s dollars that might be as much eight million dollars depending on your multiplier.

The farmers knew they were getting bilked and began to turn away from him.  According to Miss Woeste by the time Sapiro sued Ford he had already peaked being distrusted within the farm community.  In essence his career was over.  Perhaps that is why he filed a million dollar suit against Ford.  Remember in today’s dollar the would be twenty or thirty million.

He appears to have had a weak position so that is why he shifted the issue to anti-Semitism.  But what does Sapiro say of his motives?  Miss Woeste quotes him, p.143.


As an individual I was immaterial:  but I was there as a representative, first, of the cooperative marketing movement, and second, as a representative of the Jews [the whole Jewish people] who were trying in their own ways to bring social light to disorganized industry in America.

So he says the suit wasn’t about his own insignificant self.  No, no. Pure altruism.  He had two grander objectives that he says he represented, that of the cooperative movement that had been existing pretty well without him and the dissimilar objective of the Jews.  He characterized the Jews as trying to impose their vision of industrial organization on the hopeless mess created by the Aryans.

This last objective was not dissimilar to what Ford was claiming he was doing qua the Jews.  We know what reward Sapiro had already received in wages and what he was claiming from Ford but what was the reward he thought the Jews expected for setting America aright?  A million dollars? Get serious!  Leadership?  Preeminence? The reins of government?  Well, wasn’t that what Ford was claiming?

Compare Sapiro’s vision to that of Irving Berlin who wrote God Bless America at about this same time:  ‘Stand beside her and guide her’ [America].  Berlin was addressing the Jews in his song, telling him what they should do.  So, once again, we have an incompetent disorganized America needing the help of the omniscient Jews to bring social light and guidance.  This was exactly Ford’s claim or part of it.

In his quest for personal profit from the accusation of anti-Semitism, and anti-Semitism is in the eye of the beholder, that Sapiro was asking for he was opposed by no less than the Pres. Of the American Jewish Committee Louis Marshall who scented the beginnings of a race racket by exploiting Jewishness that he feared would backfire on them.  At that point then Marshall did not want Sapiro to win the suit.  It was in his interest to see a mistrial to prevent Ford from winning on one hand and from Sapiro’s profiting on the other.

A mistrial was called because of jury tampering although it is not clear who tampered with the jury.

Thus when Ford was in the trammels of trying to invent the V8 and the Model A his attention would have been diverted if not consumed by a new trial.  At this point Marshall brushed Sapiro aside stepping in to free Ford for more important work demanding an apology to the Jews as a whole in full compensation.  Sapiro more or less went broke with this long and very expensive trial.

In a forgery of no less magnitude than the Protocols Of Zion that ostensibly started the trial Marshall himself drew up every obsequious confession of anti-Semitism or, in other words, ‘hate’ speech that according to Miss Woeste was the true purpose of the trial laying the foundation for the Jewish ‘hate’ laws enacted in our day.

Marshall’s forging of the apology was not enough,  still not content with only an  apology the Jews continued their war on Henry Ford waging a campaign of defamation that has not ceased with Ford’s death in 1948 as Miss Woeste’s book attests.  An endless stream of defamatory books condemning Ford has been emitted from that day to this.  In her book Miss Woeste might better have said the Jews war on Ford or at the very best with.

As Miss Woeste says, hers is the first book that examines the Sapiro suit in detail making her effort valuable from that point of view.  Unfortunately the book is so polemical that it can’t really qualify as a history.  Indeed, one is amazed that a university press of Stanford’s stature would even issue it without heavy editing and guidance.  They should have stood beside Miss Woeste and pointed toward the true academic path.

Still, I do find uses for the volume.

Edgar Rice Burroughs And The Revolt Against Civilization
A Review Of
Lothrop Stoddard’s Eponymous Title


R.E. Prindle

Lothrop Stoddard

Lothrop Stoddard

Stoddard, Lothrop: The Revolt Against Civilization: The Menace Of The Underman, 1922, New York, Charles Scribner’s Sons, First Edition.

In the name of our To-morrow we will burn Rafael
Destroy museums, crush the flowers of art,
Maidens in the radiant kingdom of the Future
Will be more beautiful than Venus de Milo.

Quoted by Stoddard p. 202

A perennial problem in Burroughs’ studies is what did he believe? Was he a racist? Was he an anti-Semite? Was he an irredeemable bigot? Shall we just say he was not of a contemporary Liberal frame of mind. If you listen to Richard Slotkin author of Gunfighter Nation and a professor at Case Western Reserve at the time he wrote his book a couple decades ago, Edgar Rice Burroughs was an evil man responsible for all the evil in the US from 1912 to the present. Slotkin even sees him responsible for the My Lai massacre of Viet Nam.

Himself a Communist Slotkin can overlook all the crimes of the Soviet Union in which tens of millions were exterminated to find the ultimate evil in the killing of a few dozen people in Viet Nam.

Slotkin, who rampages through his history disparaging any non-Liberal writers as atavistic bigots firmly attaches Burroughs’ name to two scholars, Madison Grant and his Passing Of The Great Race of 1916 and Lothrop Stoddard and his historical studies of the twenties. He considers the two hardly less evil than Burroughs. To someone less excitable, perhaps, or lessLiberal, the two writers have written responsible and astute studies. I certainly think they have.

When I first read Slotkin I rejected the notion that Burroughs had been influenced by either. Ten years on I have to retract that opinion. It is now clear that Burroughs read both while being heavily influenced by Lothrop Stoddard, especially his 1922 volume, The Revolt Against Civilization. While the studies of both Grant and Stoddard would at best supplement Burroughs already developed opinions The Revolt can easily be seen as a template for Burroughs’ writing after he read it. While the study complemented his own developed social and political opinions I am sure that Stoddard’s explication of the history provided Burroughs with many new facts. Based on its opinions that appeared in ERB’s novels I would place the reading somewhere about 1926 or 1927.

Contrary to what some admirers want to make him ERB was what today would be considered a very conservative man, today’s Liberals would be anathema to him. He was decidedly anti-Communist, a Eugenicist, while not bigoted he was not a Negrophile or Semitophile. He was essentially a man with a social and historical outlook that was formed before 1900, a pre-immigration outlook formed while the Indian wars were still in progress. In short he was a man of his times.

Thomas Dixon Jr. to whom he is often compared was one of the most successful writers of the period who carefully examined both the Civil War and Reconstruction as well as the growing Socialist/Communist movement. He was not a bigot as he is always construed but a man of his own people. Burroughs was influenced by his work and thought well of him. He did not abhor him. ERB read many of Dixon’s novels and admired the movie based on his books, The Birth Of A Nation. He sympathized with Henry Ford in his struggle for the welfare of America and read the Dearborn Independent, Ford’s newspaper. In short, Burroughs was a stand up guy.

Now, what evidence is there he read The Revolt Against Civilization: The Menace Of The Underman? Let’s begin with this quote, p. 34 et seq.


Down to that time the exact nature of the life process remained a mystery. The mystery has now been cleared up. The researches of [August] Weisman and other modern biologists have revealed the fact that all living beings are due to a continuous stream of germ plasm which has existed ever since life first appeared on earth and which will continue to exist as long as any life remains. This germ-plasm consists of minute germ cells which have the power of developing into human living beings. All human beings spring from the union of a male sperm-cell and a female egg-cell. Right here, however, occurs the basic feature of the life process. The new individual consists, from the start, of two sorts of plasm. Almost the whole of him is body plasm – the ever multiplying cells which differentiate into the organs of the body. But he also contains germ- plasm. At his very conception a tiny bit of the life stuff from which he springs is set aside or carefully isolated from the body-plasm, and forms a course of development entirely its own. In fact, the germ-plasm is not really part of the individual; he is merely its bearer, destined to pass it on to other bearers of the life chain.

Now all this was not only unknown but even unsuspected down to a short time ago. Its discovery was in fact dependent upon modern scientific methods. Certainly, it was not likely to suggest itself to even the most philosophic mind. Thus, down to a generation ago, the life stuff was supposed to be a product of the body, not differing essentially in character from other body products. This assumption had two important consequences. In the first place, it tended to obscure the very concept of heredity, and led men to think of environment as virtually all important; in the second place, even where the importance of heredity was dimly perceived the role of the individual was misunderstood, and he was conceived as a creator rather than a mere transmitter. This was the reason for the false theory of “the inheritance of acquired characteristics,” formulated by Lamarck and upheld by most scientists until almost the end of the nineteenth century. Of course, Lamarckianism was merely a modification of the traditional ‘environmentalist’ attitude: it admitted that heredity possessed some importance, but it maintained environment as the basic feature.


Now there you have the argument of God in Tarzan And The Lion Man of 1933 nearly word for word. I hink it unlikely that ERB actually read Weisman who published following 1900 and who ERB may never have heard of, so his source was in all probability Stoddard.

Stoddard’s presentation nicely straddles the change of consciousness from the nineteenth to the twentieth century. It sounds a trifle naïve to our ears but was cutting edge at the time. Weisman’s theories were a big step in the direction of the discovery of DNA a short 26 years after Stoddard’s study.

It is important though to remember that more than fifty percent of the US population today rejects the concept of evolution while being more Lamarckian in outlook than might be supposed. We are as a whole not quite as advanced as we think we are.

As a quick affirmation of the influence of Stoddard on ERB on pages 95-96 he gives an account of the famous Jukes family of degenerates that appeared in ERB’s 1932 novelette, Pirate Blood.

Stoddard was well aware of what was happening historically and presently and one can see that he passed that understanding on to ERB. Almost as though writing today, on page 237 Stoddard writes:


Stressful transition is the key-note of our times. Unless all signs be faulty, we stand at one of those momentous crises in history when mankind moves from one well-marked epoch to another of widely different character.


Extremely prescient observation in 1922 while his study has been borne out in detail. The chapter titles give a clear outline of the contents:

1. The Burden Of Civilization
2. The Iron Law Of Equality
3. The Nemesis Of The Inferior
4. The Lure Of The Primitive
5. The Ground Swell Of Revolt
6. The Rebellion Of The Underman
7. The War Against Chaos
8. Neo-Aristocracy

As can be easily seen novelists such as Rider Haggard, ERB, Edgar Wallace as well as many others from 1890 to the 20s were grappling with the problems indicated by the chapter titles.

The natural tendency in humans is to be rather lax in mental activity. Precision calls for an active mentality and concentration. Not everyone is capable of this, yet, beginning in the nineteenth century such mental qualities were increasingly necessary. Such disciplines as Chemistry and Physics didn’t allow for personal vagaries or individual style. One couldn’t bend the disciplines to one’s own desires, precise measurements were necessary requiring mental concentration. A little bit off and who knows what might happen. In a way then the Overman and Underman were created. Either you could or you couldn’t and if you couldn’t you slipped beneath- an Underman. Higher civilization was impossible for you.

Edgar Rice Burroughs

Edgar Rice Burroughs

Burroughs addressed this problem continually. In his character Tarzan he resolved the problem giving his creation a split personality, in a loin cloth he was one man, in a tuxedo he was another. Two separate gorillas in one and always a beast. In real life society split into two possibilities- the Over and Underman.

Worse still scientific methods were able to measure the ineffable, the unseen. In chemistry sub-tiny atoms were able to be detected and their sub-miniscule weights actually measured. Measurement is the bane of the Underman. A Mole contains 6,022 x 10 to the 23rd power of atoms, an incredible incomprehensible number that still might weigh 12 grams or less. Astonishing. Beyond the comprehension hence belief of the Underman. As the process can’t be seen it can’t be believed.

In human intelligence the Englishman Francis Galton began to devise measuring devices of intelligence in 1865 shortly after Darwin announced Evolution in 1959. Thus uncertainty about mental capacity was eliminated. As Stoddard calls it, The Iron Law Of Inferiority. Biology and measuring excluded something like eighty-five percent of the population from the ranks of the most intelligent. Without that high measurement of intelligence 85% of the population was automatically excluded from the possibility of higher attainment while at the same time being prejudged.

Big strapping fellows, all man, were relegated to manual labor while wimps like perhaps, John D. Rockefeller, became billionaires. Not right, the big strapping fellows said, but not measuring up in intelligence, which they couldn’t see, they were condemned to the shovel for life.

Intelligence measuring tests were improved between 1865 and 1920 although not as accurate as could be desired. Men entering the armed forces in WWI were an excellent testing group. Of 1,700,000 tested intelligence levels were fairly accurately determined. It was then discovered that only four and a half percent were very bright with another seven or eight percent bright, while the huge bulk were C+ to C- descending from there.

One imagines Burroughs read this with extreme thoughtfulness.

So, now as the bulk of the good things were going to those who could do, what were those who couldn’t do about it? The great issue since 1789 has been equality; the Underman demanded equality as a first condition. He could organize. He could sabotage. He could rage. And that is what the Underman has done.

The Communist Party was formed. And what was their chief demand? Equality. Absolute equality. As they couldn’t rise to a natural equality then the only other feasible solution was to bring the Superior intelligences down to their level. Thus they raged against that great equalizer, education. Screw science, screw physics, screw chemistry, screw biology. Who needed what you couldn’t see and that especially included intelligence measuring?

One of ERB’s bete noires was the I.W.W.- The Industrial Workers Of The World, syndicalists. Imagine his reaction when he read this:


Viewed in the abstract, technical sense, Syndicalism does not seem to present any specially startling innovations. It is when we examine the Syndicalists’ animating spirit, their general philosophy of life, and the manner which they propose to obtain their ends, that we realize we are in the presence of an ominous novelty,- the mature philosophy of the Under Man. This philosophy of the Under-Man is today called Bolshevism. Before the Russian Revolution it was known as Syndicalism. But Bolshevism and Syndicalism are basically one and the same thing. Soviet Russia has really invented nothing. It is merely practicing what others had been preaching for years- with such adaptation as normally attend the putting of theory into practice.

Syndicalism, as an organized movement, is primarily the work of two Frenchmen, Fernand Pelloutier and Georges Sorel. Of course, just as there were Socialist before Marx, so there were Syndicalists before Sorel. Syndicalism’s intellectual progenitor was Proudhon, who in his writings had closely sketched out the Syndicalist theory. As for Syndicalism’s savage, violent, uncompromising spirit, it is clearly Anarchist in origin., drawing its inspiration not only from Proudhon but also from Bakunin, [Johann] Most, and all the rest of that furious company of revolt.

Georges Sorel

Georges Sorel

“Revolt!” This is the essence of Syndicalism: a revolt, not merely against modern society but against Marxian Socialism as well. And the revolt was well timed. When, at the very end of the nineteenth century, Georges Sorel lifted the red banner of Syndicalism, the hour awaited the man. The proletarian world was full of discordant and disillusionment at the long dormant Marxian philosophy. Half a century had passed since Marx first preached his gospel, and the revolutionary millennium was nowhere in sight. Society had not become a world of billionaires and beggars. The great capitalists had not swallowed all. The middle classes still survived and prospered. Worst of all, from the revolutionary viewpoint, the upper grades of the working classes had prospered, too. The skilled workers were, in fact, becoming an aristocracy of labor. They were acquiring property and thus growing capitalistic; they were raising their living standards and thus growing bourgeois. Society seemed endowed with a strange vitality! It was even reforming many of the abuses which Marx had pronounced incurable. When, then, was the proletariat to inherit the earth?

The Proletariat! That was the key word. The van, and even the main body of society, might be fairly on the march, but behind lagged a rear guard. Here, were, first of all, the lower working class strata- the “manual” laborers in the narrower sense, relatively ill paid and often grievously exploited. Behind these again came a motley crew, the rejects and misfits of society. “Casuals” and “unemployables”, “down-and-outs” and declasses, victims of social evils, victims of bad heredity and their own vices, paupers, defectives, degenerates, and criminals- they were all there. They were there for many reasons, but they were all miserable, and they were all bound together by a certain solidarity- a sullen hatred of the civilization from which they had little to hope. To these people evolutionary, “reformist” socialism was cold comfort. Then came the Syndicalists promising, not evolution but revolution; not in the dim future but the here and now; not a bloodless “taking over” by “the workers” hypothetically stretched to include virtually the whole community, but the bloody “dictatorship” of The Proletariat in its narrow revolutionary sense.

Here, at last, was living hope- hope, and the prospect of revenge! Is it then strange that a few short years should have seen revolutionary Socialists, Anarchists, all the anti-social forces of the whole world grouped under the banner of Georges Sorel? For a time they went under different names syndicalists in France, Bolshevists in Russia, I.W.W.s in America but in reality they formed one army, enlisted in a single war.

Now, what was this war? It was, first of all, a war for the conquest of Socialism as a preliminary to the conquest of society. Everywhere the orthodox Socialist parties were fiercely assailed. And these Socialist assaults were formidable, because the orthodox Socialists possessed no moral line of defense. Their arms were palsied by the virus of their revolutionary tradition. For however evolutionary and non-militant the Socialists might have been in practice, in theory they had remained revolutionary their ethics continuing to be those of the “class war”, the destruction of the “possessing classes” and the “dictatorship of the proletariat.”

The American economist, Carver, will describe the ethics of socialism in the following lines: “Marxian Socialism has nothing in common with idealistic Socialism. It rests not on persuasion, but on force. It does not profess to believe, as did the old idealists, that if socialism be lifted up it will draw all men to it. In fact, it has no ideals; it is materialistic and militant. Being materialistic and atheistic, it makes no use of such terms as right and justice, unless it be to quiet the consciences of those who still harbor such superstitions. It insists that these terms are mere conventionalities; the concepts mere bugaboos invented by the ruling caste to keep the masses under control. Except in a conventional sense, from this crude materialistic view there is neither a right or wrong, justice nor injustice, good or bad. Until people who still believe in such silly notions divest their minds of them they will never understand the first principles of Marxian socialism.

“Who creates our ideas of right and wrong?” asks the Socialist. “The ruling class. Why? To insure their domination over the masses by depriving them of the power to think for themselves. We, the proletarians, when we get into power, will dominate the situation; we shall be the ruling class; we shall determine who is right and wrong. Do you ask us if what we propose is just? What do you mean by justice? Do you ask if it is right? What do you mean by right? It will be good for us. That is all that right and justice ever did or ever can mean!

People ask what Burroughs believed? Was he a racist? Was he an anti-Semite? Well, Burroughs’ beliefs can be extrapolated from the above quote as well as Stoddard’s whole book. If Burroughs could have expressed himself concisely he would have written The Revolt Against Civilization. You don’t have to look any further.

There could be no more ardent anti-Communist, anti-Socialist, anti-IWW than ERB. The book was published five years after the Russian Revolution, a mere three years after the narrow quelling of the Communist disturbances of 1919 while in 1922 the Harding administration was putting the finishing touches on the suppression of that Communist revolution in the US. Make no mistake the crimes of 1919 were part of an American Bolshevik revolution. Things would not return to what Harding called normalcy but it would be a reasonable facsimile that would endure until the engineered great crash of 1929 opening the way for the Communist revolution of FDR in the US.

These were perilous times ERB was living in no less than those of today. One can’t be sure when Burroughs read Revolt but many of the same themes almost in quotation were employed in his 1926 novel The Moon Maiden. And from the Moon Maiden he went to the more sophisticated approaches of his great political novels from Tarzan At The Earth’s Core to Tarzan And The Lion Man.

As Stoddard thinks the Underman breeds at a very fast rate while the Overman limits his family the obvious consequence is that people of intelligence decrease rapidly in relation to the Underman. Of course Stoddard has all kinds of tables and charts to prove his point. As this was published in 1922 the results are heavily skewed to prove the English are the top of the heap; a result not uncongenial to Burroughs’ sensibilities.

One imagines that as of induction time in 1917-18 a great many of the recent immigrants at least had underdeveloped English language skills that affected the results but at this point it no longer matters; the general idea has been proved sound.

As we have a war between the Underman and the Overman and make no mistake, as far as Sorel and the Syndicalist/Bolshevik ideology goes it is a war to the knife, it may be asked what Stoddard’s formula for the Overman’s success might be.

This returns us to the Underman’s great fear that science, that is objective analysis supported by an array of facts will condemn him to the virtual condition of servitude. It might be surmised that this is an intolerable but inescapable conclusion unless education and science are destroyed reducing the more intelligent to the masses.


Stoddard then relying on Darwinian and Weismanian evolution and the notion of Eugenics introduced by Francis Galton resolves the problem by ending the reproduction of the ‘defective’ classes, that is, forced sterilization. Forced sterilization was actually employed. It is interesting that he never brings in the issue of race thus on the surface his book is neither racist for anti-Semitic. However as the book assumes that the superior intelligences are English or Nordic the text qualifies as anti-Semitic in Jewish eyes and hence has been placed on the Jewish Index Of Forbidden Literature.

One may be horrified at the Eugenic solution to the intelligence problem but one must be equally horrified at the Underman solution to their Overman problem. Liquidation is more horrifying than sterilization and Liquidation was employed by the Underman in Russia and will be employed again if they can consolidate their gains in the US and Europe today.

The problem is that while being founded in reality it is impossible in execution. The human mind is too subjective to be trusted with such a great responsibility. Many statues were placed on the books commanding forced sterilization and many such were executed.

Schools classes were organized based on supposed mental aptitudes. How objectively I will demonstrate by my own example. Until Jr. High in my home town schools did not systematically differentiate based on mental capacity, however at the end of the ninth grade just before I.Q. testing in the tenth there were three options, Trade School for those deemed not of academic ability, in other words destined for the labor force, and once in high school a division between business, that is white collar, and college prep. This was still a process of self-selection thus I signed up for high school however someone changed my papers to trade school.

Thus when I showed for classes at high school, I was told I was enrolled at trade school. Now, this was the fight of my life, and for it. I was told I was in trade school and to get out. I said I wasn’t leaving and sat down where I waited for four days for the situation to resolve itself. My argument was that the law required that I be given an education and it wouldn’t be at trade school. Whatever the behind the scenes machinations were I was reluctantly allowed to enter but they then insisted it would be business level while I demanded college prep. With an unexplained prescience I was told that I would never go to college so I should be in business. Nevertheless I won that struggle too.

I am sure that if enforced sterilization had been possible at the time I would have been compelled to undergo it.

Now, here’s the kicker. Came time for I.Q. tests and I placed in the upper four percent. I have no idea what the reaction to that was although my critics had to tone down their act. So human passions invalidated the whole Eugenic idea.

In other words there is no equable solution to this terrible human dilemma.

In that sense the solution offered by Aldus Huxley in his famous comic novel Brave New World is of some interest. In Huxley’s story he enlists science, chemistry, to produce different levels of mental competence. The zygote is nurtured in test tubes while at certain levels of development certain chemicals are introduced limiting the development of the fetus. Thus the labor problem is solved by creating classes only capable of menial tasks. The upper classes are bred like race horses to various degrees of excellence. Huxley was tongue in cheek to be sure but, actually the only solution to this otherwise insoluble problem.

Stoddard didn’t introduce any ideas to which Burroughs wasn’t already familiar and in agreement. At best Stoddard’s superb research and explication clarified ERB’s understanding for him. I don’t know how familiar he was with Georges Sorel. Today Sorel is unknown except to specialists although I am beginning to see his name pop up so with the Communist regime of Barack Obama perhaps the way is being prepared for Sorel’s extreme measures of exterminating the Overman.

At any rate I have come to the opinion that Richard Slotkin is correct in thinking the Burroughs had read and was in accord with both Madison Grant and Lothrop Stoddard. However Slotkin evaluates their work through the distortion of his own Communistic lens which is only valid to those of his point of view.

His view does not make Burroughs a racist or anti-Semite. It makes him an objective and accurate observer and analyst of the situation of his time. As indicated above Burroughs absorbed Stoddard’s information, that point of view and used it to create his wonderful works of the late twenties and first half of the thirties. If one bears Stoddard’s book in mind while reading those novels it will make them make great sense while presenting his view of the political and social situation

Of course the novels are not confined solely to dealing with these issues; Burroughs had a much more far ranging mind, both subjectively and objectively.

Stoddard’s The Revolt Against Civilization is a major study as relevant today as the day it was written. The last ninety years have only borne out his theses. The Revolt Against Civilization is well worth a read, perhaps two. At any rate you will have an accurate idea of Burroughs’ social and political beliefs.
