FDR: Naïve, Exploited or Fellow Traveler? (I)

When Europeans who escaped to the West are asked 'what happened to your countries at the end of the War', an overwhelming majority say they were 'sold out' to the Communists and Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin by American President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR).

Today some historians recognize that this acquiescence was a tragic mistake whereby over one hundred million people in Eastern and Central Europe were abandoned to Stalin's mass murdering and enslaving Communists.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt's roots in America extend back into the 17th century when the wealthy Dutch Delano and Roosevelt (Rosenfeldt) families came to New Amsterdam (Manhattan.) By the 1880's, these families were well established in New York's financial, political and social scenes. Franklin (born January 30, 1882) had all of the benefits that come with being born into a patrician family; money, education, and connections. [Teddy Roosevelt (U.S.  President 1901-08) was a 2nd cousin, and wife Eleanor was a 5th cousin of Teddy's, once removed.]

Until 14, young Franklin was home schooled, before graduating from Harvard with 'gentleman's Cs'. He utilized his connections to find work as a lawyer on Wall Street in 1908, and his political ambitions first met national success when he was voted Senator from New York State in 1911. Many of FDR's supportive connections were made after October 11, 1911, when he was initiated into Freemasonry at Holland Lodge #8 in New York. [He would become a 32 degree mason and Shriner, according to Professor Johan von Leers, The Power Behind the President, Stockholm, 1941, page 148.

When Woodrow Wilson took office, he appointed FDR Assistant U.S. Secretary to the Navy. FDR would hold this position through World War I until the end of Wilson's presidency.

FDR's connections would prove to be advantageous for when he was rebuked by Congress for his part in the Newport US Navy homosexual entrapment scandal in the spring of 1920, he escaped relatively unscathed, as later that same year he was still the Democratic Party's Vice-Presidential candidate on the ticket with Presidential candidate Ohio Governor James Cox, but lost to Republicans Warren Harding and Calvin Coolidge.

On March 4 1933, Franklin Delano Roosevelt took the Presidential oath of office. Then in  early April, in a move eerily similar to Lenin's [November 22, 1917] decree , FDR confiscated the gold holdings of private US citizens at a price of $20.67 per ounce on the grounds of "national emergency."

Citizens who did not comply with this unconstitutional law were subject to $10,000 fines and/or imprisonment. Then in January 30, 1934, FDR set the value of an ounce of gold at $35 per ounce, and a few months later he also doubled the price of silver.

In effect, his actions were an outright theft from the US middle class, while larger holders and hoarders of gold and silver who kept their assets in foreign accounts, (e.g. the international banking community), made a quick 70% return on their holdings.

In January 1933, Bernard Baruch told FDR's son-in-law Curtis Dall that he personally held 5/16ths of the world's silver. Thus Baruch made a huge gain when the price of silver was raised, while American small businessmen and farmers suffered.

The Chairman of the House Banking Committee, Congressman Louis McFadden, charged that this was "an operation run for the benefit of the international bankers." [After two attempts on his life, Louis McFadden (born 1876) collapsed and died at a banquet in a suspected case of poisoning in 1936.]

This gold confiscation legislation advice came from the Council of Foreign Relations and the Federal Reserve Bank Board. By implementing this policy in his first year in office,FDR showed his fealty to the international bankers.

In 1933, Stalin, Hitler and Roosevelt consolidated leadership positions in their countries. For the next 12 years they autocratically dictated global geo-political decisions though they were not League of Nations members.

At FDR's first cabinet meeting, advisor Baruch provided each new cabinet member with a book by Italian Fascist theoretician Giovanni Gentile, who had introduced the term 'corporatism' - the merger of state and corporate power.

The advisors that were placed close to FDR - Bernard Baruch, Harvard Professor Felix Frankfurter, Louis Howe, wife Eleanor, and later Harry Hopkins, were responsible for key government appointments and decisions. All had sympathies and favored the global bankers' investment, the Bolshevik Soviet Union.

In 1933, the Ukrainian holocaust (Holomodor) was at its climax as small farmers were being deliberately starved to death to enforce. This forced famine was a 'secret genocide' which was denied by the Communists in Moscow and their supporters in the west.

In spite of the atrocities occurring under Stalin's rule, on November 17, 1933, FDR became the first United States President to formally recognize the Communist Soviet Union as a legitimate nation, thereby legalizing the already ongoing trade and commerce with the Soviets.

This recognition acknowledged the actual situation whereby Ukrainian grain and other raw materials were being sold in exchange for British and American machinery.

In 1935, 32 degree Masons Roosevelt and Henry Wallace, [FDR's 1st and 2nd term Secretary of Agriculture, 3rd term Vice President, and 1948 Communist party endorsed Presidential candidate], inserted the 1782 Masonically inspired "Great Seal" logo onto the reverse side of the US $1 dollar bill. With its inscribed Latin logo "Novus Ordo Seclorum" [New World Order], and the Masonic/Illuminati's unfinished pyramid topped with its all-seeing eye capstone, Masonic influence, secrecy and power were now openly recognized in the top political and economic positions of the USA.

 [Freemasonry was important in FDR's personal and political life as his sons Elliott, James and Franklin D. Jr. also joined lodges, and Presidents Wilson, Truman, and other advisors - Schiff, House, Baruch, Wallace, Stimson, and other U.S. government officials were also Masons.]

Georgetown Professor, CFR member, summarized the "New World Order" objective; "The powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands, able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks in the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences."

The apex of the systems was to be the Bank of International Settlements [BIS} in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations."  [Editor: BIS was established by Charles E. Dawes in 1930, with Rothschild family support.]

The Great Seal's pyramid base is dated MDCCLXXVI (1776) reminding Americans of July 4, 1776, the date associated with the Declaration of Independence. However all things Masonic have more than one meaning, usually one for the uninitiated, and others for the 'illuminated'. 1776 also has meaning in Jewish occult numerology, and May 1, 1776 is the date when Adam Weishaupt, [chosen by Mayer Amschel Rothschild to develop an organization that Rothschild could use, founded the Bavarian Illuminati elite.

Author Paul Foster Case, in 'The Great Seal of The United States' - Its History, Symbolism and Message for the New Age', notes these 1776 references; "In the gematria of the Greek language, 1776 is the number of the phrase 'he soteria Israel', "the salvation of Israel" ... the fact remains that the New World Order begun in 1776 [Illuminati] ... since the date, 1776 ... has been so important in the history of the United States ..."

Dave said (February 21, 2011):

The author repeatedly refers to FDR as a 32nd degree Mason. While his points are good, Roosevelt was actually a 33rd degree Mason, not a 32nd degree Mason. Someone who studied the Masons would know that no one stops at 32.

Most of the lower level initiates stop at the 3rd degree. Those who decide to really commit (to Satan ultimately) for the worldly benefits a 33rd degree Mason receives, would never stop one degree short of the prize.

Also, he completely left out the role of Jews in any of this, the Ukranian Holocaust in particular.

I do not believe you can have an honest discussion of globalist cabal that rules the world without recognizing the Zionist nature of that Cabal.

David said (February 21, 2011):

As a boy;interested in politics and history I recall how all of his opposition was portrayed as 'evil'.

Coughlin,Lindburgh,Taft,Dewey.Huey Long.Even that lackey of Henry Luce and FDR, set up Wilkie.I recall the shock of seeing photos of the GOP convention of 44;'Why were these insane people going against FDR?"My young self wondered.

But being of curious mind, contrarian temperament and good instincts, I questioned and keep learning. FDR came out of Wilson,of Federal Reserve,WW1,Versailles horror fame,and the first real set up President(See Ben Freeman).Bernard Baruch handled FDRs personal funds along with that fiend Churchills!!

So what you tell us Henry is most relevant.The key to understanding this group is not overt Communism. They just used the system. Plus there Old Testament hate(Talmudic,Masonic. They wanted into Russia,and China. They did not want a German(ContinentalEuropean) link with Russia,nor Japan and China.

Czar Nicholas wouldn't have this,and post 48 Stalin wouldn't. (See What Is Behind The Hanging Of 9 Jews In Prague by Yockey).

Something curious Henry, you might want to contemplate. Franklin Roosevelt JR.Congressman from NY;loosing candidate for Attorney General to Jacob Javts in 54 and candidate for Governor in 66 was married 5 times!His first wife was a DuPont.His second(Take A Deep Breadth)WAS FELICIA SCHIFF WARBURG SARNOFF!!!!!!I'm not kidding.That says it all

Roosevelt's "connections" were made before he was born. Some of his ancestors came arrived in America on the Mayflower around 1620. That ship made several crossings to bring "the Puritans" to the colony chartered by King Charles Ist by the Massachusetts Bay Company.

Suffice to say the Puritans were a sect of Cabalists from England and Holland. The English had unofficially exiled them to tolerant Holland, but within a decade even the Dutch suspected them. Charles was happy to to sell colonial charters to wealthy dissidents to get them out of his hemisphere. The Puritans were the seed, so to speak, from which American Freemasonry grew a century later from the top down of colonial society. Eight Presidents are of Mayflower, Puritan bloodline. Franklin and Theodore Roosevelt among them.

The only reason the Newport Navy investigation was a 'scandal' in 1920 was the revelation that the decoys had participated in the sex act. As far as I'm concerned it's to Roosevelt's credit that he supported that investigation. In fact I'm surprised that a generational Illuminatus and Freemason would have. But you see Roosevelt knew there was going to be a second world war and that America wasn't supposed to lose. How do I know Roosevelt knew in 1919 that there would be a second world war?

"I can predict with absolute certainty that within another generation there will be another world war." -Woodrow Wilson, Congressional Address 1919, appeal for US membership in the [defucnt] "League of Nations".
