"In this divergence between the Gentiles and ourselves in ability to think and reason is to be seen clearly the seal of our election as the chosen people, as higher human beings, in contrast with the Gentiles who have merely instinctive and animal minds. They observe, but they do not foresee, and they invent nothing (except perhaps material things). It is clear from this that nature herself predestined us to rule and guide the world."
- The Fourteenth Protocol
14. The High And Low Of Jewish Money-Power
Humanity has become wise enough to discuss those forms of physical sickness over which it formerly drew the veil of shame and secrecy, but political hygiene is not so far advanced. The main source of the sickness of our national body is charged to be the influence of the Jews, and although this was apparent to acute minds years ago, it is now said to have gone so far as to be apparent to the least observing. But while these influences were undermining the mass of the people, higher influences of Jewish origin were operating on the government.
The Jewish Problem in the United States is essentially a city problem; great cities are the areas in which most all national disease have their origin. It is characteristic of the Jews to gather in numbers, not where land is open nor where raw materials are found, but where the greatest number of people abide. This is a noteworthy fact when considered alongside the claim that the Gentiles have ostracized them; the Jews congregate in their greatest numbers in those places and among those people where they complain they are least wanted!
The explanation most frequently given is this: the genius of the Jew is to live off people, not off land, nor off the production of commodities from raw materials, but off people. Let other people till the soil; the Jew, if he can, will live off the tiller. Let other people toil at trades and manufacture; the Jew will exploit the fruits of their work. That is his particular genius. If this genius be described as parasitic, the term would seem to be justified by a certain fitness.
In no other city of the United States can the Jewish Problem be studied with greater profit than in the city of New York. There are more Jews in New York than anywhere else in the world; at least one Jew in every ten resides in New York. Jews exert more power in New York, and from New York, than they have ever exerted during the Christian era in any place with the exception of present Russia. The Jewish Revolution of Russia was manned from New York. The Jewish government of Russia was transported almost as a unit from the lower East Side of New York. The general run of shopkeeping, from the great departmental stores to the smallest "junk" shop, is practically monopolized by Jews. The legal profession is predominantly Jewish. From news agencies that distribute news to the newspapers, to the newspaper that prints it, to the news-stand that distributes the national reading matter, the control and in most cases the ownership is entirely Jewish. In Wall Street the Jewish element is both numerous and powerful, as might be expected of a race which from early days has played an important part in the financial operations of the world.
The Rothschild Method
Jewish high finance first touched the United States through the Rothschilds. Indeed, it may be said that the United States founded the Rothschild fortunes. As so often occurs in the tale of Jewish riches, the fortune was founded in war. The first 20 million dollars the Rothschilds ever had to speculate with was money paid for Hessian troops to fight against the American colonies.
Since that first indirect connection with American affairs, the Rothschilds have often invaded the money affairs of the country, though always by agents. None of the Rothschilds sons thought it necessary to establish himself in the newly-founded United Stated. Anselm remained in Frankfort, Solomon chose Vienna, Nathan Mayer went to London, Charles established himself in Naples, and James represented the family in Paris.
These were the five war-lords of Europe for more than a generation, and their dynasty was continued by their successors.
Rothschild power, as it was once known, has been so broadened by the entry of other banking families into governmental finance, that it must now be known not by the name of one family of Jews, but by the name of the race. Thus it is spoken of as International Jewish Finance, and its principal figures are described as International Jewish Financiers. Much of the veil of secrecy which contributed so greatly to the Rothschild power has been stripped away; war finance has been labelled for all time as "blood money," and the mysterious magic surrounding large transactions between governments and individuals, by which individual controllers of large wealth were made the real rulers of the people, has been largely solved and the plain facts disclosed.
The Rothschild method still holds good, however, in that Jewish institutions are affiliated with their racial institutions in all foreign countries. As a leading student of financial affairs puts it, the world of high finance is largely a Jewish world because of the Jewish financiers "absence from national or patriotic illusions." To the International Jewish Financier the ups and downs of war and peace between the nations are but the changes of the worlds financial market; and, as frequently the movement of stocks is manipulated for purposes of market strategy, so sometimes international relations are affected for mere financial gain.
It is known that the first world war was postponed several times at the behest of international financiers. If it broke out too soon, it would not involve the states which the international financiers wished to involve. Therefore, the masters of gold, the international masters, were compelled several times to check the martial enthusiasm which their own propaganda had aroused. The Jewish Press alleges that there was discovered a Rothschild Letter dated 191l, and urging the Kaiser against war. The year 1911 was too early. There was no such insistence in 1914.
There is no question whatever of International Jewish Finance being deeply concerned in the matter of war and revolution this is never denied as to the past; it is just as true of the present. The league against Napoleon, for example, was Jewish. Its headquarters were in Holland. When Napoleon invaded Holland, the headquarters were moved to Frankfort-on-the-Main. It is remarkable how many of the International Jewish Financiers have come out of Frankfurt the Rothschilds, the Schiffs, the Speyers, to name but a few. Jewish influence in German affairs came strongly to the front during the 1914-1918 war. It came with all the directness and attack of a flying wedge, as if previously prepared. There are no stronger contrasts in the world than the pure Germanic and pure Semitic races; therefore, there has been no harmony between the two in Germany, and though Jewish influence became strong in that country it was not gained without challenge, but Jewish power became paramount in the Revolution which followed the war. The Revolution would not have come if they had not brought it. The principal Jewish influences which brought down German order may be named under three heads: (a) the spirit of Bolshevism which masqueraded under the name of German Socialism; (b) Jewish ownership and control of the Press; (c) Jewish control of the food supply and the industrial machinery of the country. There was a fourth, "higher up," but these worked upon the German people directly. It will be recalled that the German collapse in that war was directly due to food starvation and material shortages, and to industrial unrest. As early as the second year of the war, German Jews were preaching that German defeat was necessary to the rise of the proletariat. Strovel declared: "I openly admit that a full victory of the country would not be in the interest of the Social Democrats." And also: "The exaltation of the proletariat after a won victory is an impossibility." Revolution is the expression of the Jews will to power. Parties are but tools for the Jewish plan to power. The so-called "dictatorship of the proletariat" is really and practically the dictatorship of the Jews.
The 1914-1918 war brought about a condition which threw a new light on the internationalism of Jewish finance. During the years of American neutrality there was opportunity to observe the extent of the foreign affiliations of certain men, and also the extent to which ordinary national loyalty was subordinated to the business of international finance. That war really forced a coalition of Gentile capital on one side of the struggle, as against certain blocks of Jewish capital which were willing to play both sides. The old Rothschild maxim: "Do not put all your eggs in one basket," becomes perfectly plain when transposed into national and international terms. Jewish finance treats political parties the same bets on them both, and so never loses. In the same way Jewish finance never loses a war. Being on both sides, it cannot miss the winning side, and its terms of peace are sufficient to cover all advances to the side that lost. This was the significance of the great swarming of Jews at the Versailles Peace Conference.
But a strange fatality seems to follow all forms of Jewish supremacy. Just as the capstone is ready to be placed on the edifice of Jewish triumphs, something occurs and the structure shrinks. It occurs so often in Jewish history that the Jews themselves have been exercised to find an explanation. In many cases "anti-Semitism," offers the readiest excuse, but not always. Just at the present time, when the light which was shed by the fires of war has revealed so many matters formerly hidden in shadow, the awakening of world attention is called "anti-Semitism," and the explanation is given that "after every war the Jew becomes the scapegoat" a curious admission which would lead a less self-centered people to inquire, Why?
Scope Of Jewish Money Power
In the firm of Kuhn, Loeb and Company, Jewish finance in the United States reached its high-water mark. The head of this firm was the late Jacob Schiff, who was born in Frankfort-on-the-Main and whose father was one of the Rothschild brokers. One of Jacob Schiff,s associates, Otto Kahn, was born in Mannheim, and was early associated with the Speyers, who also originated in Frankfort and who came to great power in England during the reign of Edward VII. Another associate, Felix Warburg, married into Jacob Schiffs family, and the Warburgs, became some of the most influential members of Americas diplomatic representatives.
Early flank movements of Jewish financiers in America sought out other objectives in foreign countries whose future influence on American affairs proved to be considerable. The first flank movement was toward Central and South America. The financial assistance, practical and advisory, offered to Mexico during the most unsatisfactory period of her relations with the United States was given by Jewish groups. The political upheavals and the financial arrangements in the tiny but strategically placed countries of Central America are too notorious even to occasion comment.
It is known that Jacob Schiff gave material assistance to Japan in the 1905 war with Russia. This was explainable on the ground of good business and also of a desire to revenge Russias treatment of the Jews. Schiff used the opportunity also to instill the principles, which have since grown up into Bolshevism, into the minds of the Russian prisoners in Japanese war camps. The attempt to gain influence in Japan, in those distant days, came off rather badly. The Japs kept the business deal strictly a business deal, and Mr. Jacob Schiff was displeased with Japan generally. The idea at the beginning of the century appears to have been to add the newly rising Japan to the string of financial conquests, but the Japanese were credited with knowing much more about the "Jewish peril" than did the United States. This is well worth recalling in view of the intensive propaganda which, for years before the 1914 war, constantly sought to create misunderstanding between the United States and the Empire of Japan.
Jewry emerged from the 1914-1918 war more strongly entrenched in power, even in the United States, than it was before. In the world at large the ascendancy of the Jew at the present time is even more marked. In those countries which can justly be called unfriendly to the Jew, now or in the recent past, the rule of the Jew is stronger than anywhere else. The more they are opposed, the more they show their power. At a moment when, as all Jewish spokesmen inform us, there is a world-wave of "anti-Semitism," which is their name for a new awakening of people to what has been going on what should occur but that at the head of the Chief Magistracy of the World [Editors Note: The League of Nations is referred to in the original (1920) text and the same factor arises in the present direction of the "United Nations." The more it changes, the more it is the same thing] a Jew appears. Nobody seems to know why. Nobody can explain it.
"Disraeli Of America"
A Jew Of Super-Power
In the United States we had a term of Jewish rule [Editors Note: In each instance the 1914-1918 war is referred to during the administration of President Wilson. It is a vital fact that the same man (Baruch) was the right-hand man of President Roosevelt throughout the Roosevelt peace and war administrations!] almost as absolute as that which exists in Russia. This appears to be a very strong statement, but it is milder than the facts warrant. And the facts are not of hearsay origin, nor the product of a biased point of view; they are the fruits of an inquiry by the lawful officials of the United States who were set aside in favor of a readymade Jewish Government, and they are forever spread upon the official records of the United States.
The Jews have proved that the control of Wall Street is not necessary to the control of the American people, and the person by whom they proved this was a Wall Street Jew!
This man has been called "the pro-consu1 of Judah in America." It is said that once, referring to himself, he exclaimed: "Behold the Disraeli of the United States!"
To a select committee of the Congress of the United States he said: "I probably had more power than perhaps any other man did in the war; doubtless that is true." [Editors Note: In the second world war, in which the man was all powerful, his close friend, Winston Churchill, was British Prime Minister. It is significant that the "concentration of industry" system in Britain threw all commercial secrets into the hands of monopolist cartels, and the secrets of British military and industrial developments were made freely available to Jewish manipulators.]
He did not overstate the case. He did have more power. It was not all legal power, this much he admitted. It reached into every home and store and factory and bank and railway and mine. It touched armies and governments. It touched recruiting boards. It made and unmade men without a word. It was power without responsibility and without limit. It was such a power as compelled the Gentile population to lay bare every secret before this man and his Jewish associates, giving them an advantage and knowledge that billions of gold could not buy.
Not one American in a million ever heard of this man before the entry of the United States into the war in 1917. He glided out of a certain obscurity unlighted by public service of fame, into the high rulership of the nation at war. The constituted government had little to do with him save vote the money and do his bidding. He said that men could have appealed over his head to the President of the United States but, knowing the situation, men never did.
Who was, who is, this figure, colossal in his way, and most instructive of the readiness of Judah to take the rule whenever he desires?
His name is Bernard M. Baruch. He was born in South Carolina in the 1870s, the son of a Jewish doctor, Dr. Simon Baruch. He was graduated at the College of the City of New York when he was just under 19 years of age. After going down to Wall Street as a clerk and a runner, and when he "was about 26 or 27," he became a member of the firm of A. A. Housman and Company. "In about 1900 or 1902" he left the firm, but he had meanwhile gained a seat on the Stock Exchange.
He then went into business himself, a statement which must be taken literally in view of his testimony that he
"Did not do any business for anybody but myself. I made a study of the corporations engaged in the production and manufacture of different things, and a study of the men engaged in them."
Emerging from his evidence before Congress, Baruchs operations are seen to be in various fields; principally in the field of metals and the organization of various commercial enterprises. He was instrumental also in the purchase of tobacco companies, various copper, steel, tungsten, rubber and smelting companies, and he was responsible for the building up of the great industries in rubber in Mexico. As a young man, he is found to be the master of large sums of money, and there is no indication that he inherited any. He is very wealthy. What change the war made in his wealth is not known, but certainly many of his friends and close associates reaped great quantities of money from their activities during the war.
Cross-examined by the Congress Inquiry it was amply proved that Baruchs influence over President Wilson made such changes in the Administration as to make Baruch the most powerful man in the war. The Council of National Defense eventually became the merest side show. It was not a Council of Americans that ran the war, it was an autocracy headed by a Jew, with Jews at every strategic point down the line. In his own evidence he describes one of his visits to the President in 1915.
Mr. Baruch: "I thought a war was coming long before it did . . . . I explained to him as earnestly as I could that I was very deeply concerned about the necessity of the mobilization of the industries of the country. The President listened very attentively and graciously, as he always does . . . . My attention was brought to the Council of National Defense . . . . The Secretary of War asked me what I thought of it. I said I would like to have something different." A council is a council. Mr. Baruch wanted something different. He did get something different. He got the President to change matters so as to make Mr. Baruch the "most powerful man in the war." What Baruch did was very masterly, but it was not in the American manner. No one but a member of his race would have wanted to do it.
There is no discounting the testimony Baruch gave before Congress. The President of the United States did exactly what Baruch wanted in a thousand ways, and what Baruch apparently wanted was a ruling hand on productive America, and he got it. He got it in a larger way than even Lenin or his successors ever got in Russia; for here in the United States the people saw nothing but the patriotic element; they did not see the Jewish Government looming above them. Yet it was there.
So Baruch did things. Before he got through, he was head and center of a system of control such as the United States Government never possessed and never will possess until it changes its character as a free government. As told by himself, his power consisted in the following authorities:
1. Authority over the use of capital in the private business of Americans. (This authority was nominally under the Capital Issues Committee, the controlling factor of which was another Jew, Eugene Meyer, Jr.)
2. Authority over all materials. This, of course, included everything. Mr. Baruch was an expert in many of the lines of materials involved, and had held interests in many of them. In lines where Mr. Baruch was not an expert, he of course, had other experts in charge; Jews. "The members of that committee were picked out by myself; the industries did not pick them out," he stated [Editors Note: The extension of the "control of industry and materials" system in World War II, and the development of the methods and powers of Baruch and his political associates in the "Western Democracies" in the latter war, make an interesting parallel to the disclosures in Congress after the first world war. The Plan in progress, in fact.].
3. Authority over industries. He determined where coal might be shipped, where steel might be sold, where industries might be operated and where not. He said, it is in his recorded testimony, that there were 351 or 357 lines of industry under his control in the United States including "practically every raw material in the world. I had the final authority."
4. Authority over the classes of men to be called to military service. Baruch virtually pointed out to the Provost Marshall of the United States, the classes of men to be taken into the army. "We had to decide virtually the necessity of things," he said. "We had to decide that the less-essential industries would have to be curbed, and it was from them that the man-power would have to be taken for the army."
It was, of course, necessary that some ruling should be made, but by one man, why always this one man?
5. Authority over the personnel of labor in the country. "We decided upon a dilution of men with women labor, which was a thing that had always been fought by the labor unions." "We fixed the prices . . . . . for the total production, not alone for the army and the navy, but for the Allies and the civilian population."
And now behold as complete an illustration of one part of the Protocols as ever could be found in any Gentile Government: "We will force up wages which, however, will be of no benefit to the workers, for we will at the same time cause a rise in the prices of necessities"; the First Protocol.
It was not only during the war, but also after the Armistice, that tokens of signal choice were showered on Baruch. He went to the Versailles Peace Conference as a part of the Presidents entourage.
Mr. Baruch: "Whenever he asked my advice I gave it. I had something to do with the reparations clauses. I was the American Commissioner in charge of what they called the Economic Section. I was a member of the Supreme Economic Council in charge of raw materials."
Baruch admitted in his evidence that he sat in council with the men who were negotiating the Peace Treaty and that he participated in the meeting of the "Big Five," Premiers. Jews were so conspicuous in the American Mission as to excite comment everywhere. Frenchmen called Versailles the "Kosher Conference." So numerous and ubiquitous were the International Jews, headed by Baruch, so firmly established in the inner circles, that the keen observer, Dr. E. J. Dillon, in his book, "The Inside Story of the Peace Conference" (Harpers), said this:
"It may seem amazing to some readers, but it is none the less a fact, that a considerable number of delegates believed that the real influences behind the Anglo-Saxon peoples were Semitic." (p. 496).
". . . the sequence of expedients framed and enforced in this direction were inspired by the Jews, assembled in Paris for the purpose of realizing their carefully thought-out program, which they succeeded in having substantially executed . . . The formula into which this policy was thrown by the members of the Conference, whose countries it affected, and who regarded it as fatal to the peace of Eastern Europe, was this: Henceforth the world will be governed by the Anglo Saxon peoples, who in turn, are swayed by their Jewish elements." (p. 497).
This is not the whole story by any means.
Why was Baruch chosen to be the first Dictator of the United States? What had he been, what had he done, that he should have been chosen as head and front of governmental power in the first world war, the first major war in which the United States was involved, and which turned that county from a debtor nation into the most powerful of all time in military and financial power? And with a minimum of military sacrifice and comparatively trifling effort. His antecedents do not account for it. Neither his personal nor commercial attainments account for it. What does?
Men who can manipulate this political and money power in time of war can do so in time of peace. The United States is living under some of the peace-manipulation now. The operating groups, governments, are bankrupt. Only their power of confiscation keeps them up. The United States, commonly referred to as the richest country in the world, is just as poor as a government as is any other; it is in debt and borrowing. And its creditors are constantly discounting their obligations and putting it into worse hands than ever. The amount of our National Debt is the measure of our enslavement to Jewish World Finance. We live in a democracy, yet loans are contracted that always cost more than the amount of the loan, and no one has a word to say about it. We Americans do not know how much interest we pay every year, and we dont know to whom we pay it.
