The Jewish Bankers

The great Jewish banking monopolies have been interwoven by marriage like a rug. Note three things about the Rothschilds, from the Jewish Encyclopedia of 1905:

        1). That of the 58 Rothschild marriages to that date, exactly half, or 29, had been to first cousins.

        2). That the Rothschilds were the first to make use of journalistic methods to arouse the interest of the public in their loans. They have, however, consistently kept the secret of their own operations!

        3). A major reason why Russia collapsed and went under the Communist Red heel during World War I was because the Rothschilds consistently refused to have anything to do with loans to Russia owing to anti-Jewish legislation.

The Warburg International Jewish banking family has also been closely connected with the Schiffs and Rothschilds. James Paul Warburg, in his sketch in Who's Who in American Jewry - 1938-39 states: "Born Hamburg, Germany, August 18, 1896...paternal ancestors through six generations have been bankers as members of the banking house of M.M. Warburg & Co., founded in Hamburg, 1798...maternal grand father, Solomon, founder of international banking house of Kuhn, Loeb & Co...Came to U.S., 1902..."

Paul M. Warburg had married Jenny Nina Loeb, mother of James Paul. Jacob Schiff, after coming to the U.S. had married Theresa Loeb, sister of Nina, and daughter of the Kuhn, Loeb founder. Schiff's daughter, Frieda, married Felix M. Warburg, Hamburg-born banker who headed the agro joint work for Jewry in Russia to help keep them in power after the Red Revolution.

Their daughter, Carola, married Walter M. Rothschild. Felix M. Warburg and Paul M. Warburg of Kuhn, Loeb & Co., partners of Jacob Schiff, were brothers of Max Warburg of Hamburg, Germany, the pay-off man, in power with the Kaiser, who funnelled funds to Lenin (Lenin's real name was Ulyanov. His father was of Mongol origin, his mother a German Jewess) and Trotsky during World War I to undermine and destroy the Russian Government.

Jacob Schiff received his banking training in his father's business, he being a Rothschild agent and associate. The basement of the two-in-a-row houses of Schiff and Rothschild in Frankfort-on-Main, Germany, was one room-in-common, with a joint "get-away" which formerly had led beyond a ghetto wall. The little shack at the back was where Kings, hat-in-hand, would come to get Jewish loans.

The original name of Bauer had been abandoned for "Red Shield" (Rothschild) and a Red Shield hung out as an address sign at the front of the house. "When the Kehilla (i.e. the Jewish community) of New York was organized in 1909, the control rested with a group of German Jews, including Jacob Schiff, president of Kuhn Loeb and Co., a branch of the Bleichroeder Mendelssohn Bank, affiliated with the big 'D' banks in Germany: Deutsche Bank, Disconto Gesellschaft, Dresdener Bank, Darmstadter Bank." (From Waters Flowing Eastward, by L. Fry, published by the R.I.S.S. of Paris, founded by Monsignor Jouin)

Also: "In Germany the leading private bankers included the Mendelssohns...and the Bleichroeders...who were bankers to Emperor William I. Bismarck, and the early industrialists...Frankfort, the 'mother city' of Jewish bankers...produced its Lazards, Speyers, Sterns, Dreyfuses, and Sulzbachs as well as sending abroad one Jacob H. Schiff." (The Jews of Germany, Marvin Lowenthal, Longmans Green and Co., N.Y. 1936)

And, says the same source: "Toward the end of that period the house of Warburg in Hamburg played an important part not only in the finances but destines of Germany. Max Warburg was adviser to the government at the Versailles Peace Conference. Carl M. Melchoir, another member of the firm...headed the financial section of the Armistice Commission in 1918-1919 and was one of the six German delegates to Versailles."

Elsewhere therein, through State Department documents, one will note the role played by the M.M. Warburg banking firm in financing the Red Russian Revolution. And, when Max Warburg came here from Hamburg in 1939, the American Jewish Committee placed him on its "Post-War" committee for reorganization of the World which, in turn, set up the propaganda clique for the ensuing United Nations. And so, down through the decades, Kuhn, Loeb, and international bankers, "Princes of Jewry" remold the World toward the ultimate aim - World Jewish dictatorship, now so rapidly coming about.

The Kaiser

Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany and his Government were used during World War I by Jews such as Max Warburg to channel funds into Russia to breed disaffection in the Russian Army and Navy, and to set the stage for the ultimately successful Bolshevik Revolution. When Kaiser Wilhelm realized that he had been made a tool of Jewry, it was after the War was over, and he was sawing or chopping wood at Doorn, Holland. It was too late.

Henry Ford's Dearborn Independent carried this article on July 9, 1921: "It is a most significant fact that, as in Washington, the most constant and privileged visitors to the White House were Jews, so in Berlin the only private telephone wire to the Kaiser was owned by Walter Rathenau (who later wrote the constitution of the post-war Jew-controlled Weimar 'Republic'). Not even the Crown Prince could reach the Kaiser except through the ordinary telephone connections...

        It was a family enterprise, this international campaign, Jacob Schiff swore to destroy Russia. Paul M. Warburg was his brother-in-law; Felix Warburg was his son-in-law. Max Warburg, of Hamburg, banker of the Bolsheviks, was thus brother-in-law to Jacob Schiff's wife and daughter...Max Warburg represents the family in its native land. Max Warburg has as much to do with the German war government as his family and financial colleagues had to do with the United States war government.

        As has been recounted in the press the world over, the brother from America and the brother from Germany both met at Paris as government representatives in determining the peace. There were so many Jews in the German delegation that it was known by the term 'kosher,' also as 'the Warburg delegation,' and there were so many Jews in the American delegation that the delegates from the minor countries of Europe looked upon the United States as a Jewish country which through unheard-of-generosity had elected a Jew as its president (Woodrow Wilson)...The Jews had several objectives in the war, and one of them was to 'Get Russia'...In this work Max Warburg was a factor.

        His bank is noted in a dispatch published by the United States government as being one whence funds were forwarded to Trotsky for use in destroying Russia. Always against Russia, not for German reasons, but for Jewish reasons, which in this particular instance coincided.

        Warburg and Trotsky - against Russia! While Otto Kahn, another partner in Kuhn, Loeb & Co. denounced 'pro-German propaganda,' his partner Paul was playing the German symphony string! It is a great international orchestra, this Jewish financial firm; it can play the Star Spangled Banner, Die Wacht am Rhein, the Marseillaise, and God Save the King in one harmonious rendering, paying obsequious attention to the prejudices of each."

Jews In The Russian Revolution of 1905

The New York Communal Register of 1917-18 related the actions of the American Jewish Committee in the U.S. to protect Russian Jewish revolutionaries. In 1909, so many red revolutionary criminals had fled to this country from the Jewish war against Christian Russia that the Committee fought to keep two of them, Pourea and Rudovitz, here. "The Committee appreciated the bearing of their cases upon a large number of Jews who had taken part in the Russian Revolution (i.e. 1905) and who had sought or might seek, an asylum in this country, and in cooperation with others succeeded in defeating the attempt of Russia."

The "others" referred to included Secretary of State Elihu Root, who despite the fact that "no substantial evidence was produced before the committee magistrate that the offenses charged against Pourea were political (therefore under the law he could be extradited) delayed in deciding the case until it could be changed in Pourea's favor." (Letter of Root to Jacob Schiff. Socialist Jew Samuel Gompers was also among those who intervened for Pourea)

Rutenberg And The Revolution

The Jewish Kehillah report boasted of Pinchas Rutenberg as a founding force in the American Jewish Congress as well as his being the right hand man to Jewish Premier Kerensky in the 1917 Russian Revolution.

Mourning the death of its founder, Pinchas Rutenberg, the American Jewish Congress publication, The Congress Weekly (1/16/42) stated in an article, Rutenberg's Mission to America: "His role in the birth of the American Jewish Congress was immense...the young Russian intellectual, in other words, revolutionist, soon made his influence felt in the underground council of the Social Revolutionary Party. Rutenberg was the man who, in 1905, piloted the revolutionary activities of the notorious Father Gapon and then sat in judgment and brought about his execution. In Italy, during the first World War, he got in touch with Vladimir Jabotinsky, founder of the Jewish Legion. In New York in 1915 he got in touch with the representatives of the Social Revolutionary Party there, Dr. Chaim Zitlowsky and Dr. Samuel Ellsberg, who were now interested in the Poale Zion party, Palestine, and Jewish rights."

Father Gapon

The above Father Gapon incident is typical of applied Judaism. The dramatic prayer addressed by Gapon to the Czarist government with the threat that if it were not granted. "we shall die here on the Square before thy Palace," combined with mutinies, strikes involving more than 2-million people, are related in William Henry Chamberlin's The Russian Revolution 1917-1921 (1935).

Where we read: "Gapon himself was doubtful about the wisdom of bringing large masses...to present this petition." (The Russian Revolution 1917-1921 (1935), Vol. 1, p. 48)

Yet Gapon was pushed ahead as the leader. Then, "when the demonstrators refused to obey orders to disperse and go home volleys of rifle fire poured on them...The casualties of Bloody Sunday (January 22, 1905) are estimated at from two hundred to fifteen hundred."

That the Jew Rutenberg "piloted the revolutionary activities of the notorious Father Gapon, then sat in judgment and brought about his execution," is not mentioned by historian Chamberlin, who was correspondent for 12 years in Russia for the leftist-oriented Christian Science Monitor, and later wrote for the Jewish-line "Anti-Communist" Human Events. He also served as Contributing Editor of the Socialist Social Democratic Federation party's magazine, New Leader.

Rutenberg was chose in 1937 as one of the 120 leading Jews of the world, along with Litvinov (Finkelstein), the Soviet Commissar, and Rabbi Louis Finkelstein, head of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. He died in Palestine in 1942, much mourned, having set up the Palestine Electric Corporation, using huge water rights, issued under British protection, for the use of Jewry.

More Jewish Manipulations In The U.S.

No corner of the earth has been too remote to manipulate for Jewry. We note the activities of the American Jewish Committee concerning: "The Jews in the Balkans," after 1913. And our government was used again to pressure for Jewish power. The restrictions of immigration from Russia was fought by the American Jewish Committee after 1906, so that the flow of revolutionaries might not be curbed.
 


Vipers - Part 29

The literacy test was fought so that illiterate Jews might swarm here - as they did. Of three literacy test bills, we are told, President Taft vetoed one and President Wilson two, under pressure of the American Jewish Committee. And then when one of them was passed, despite the veto, the Committee "succeeded in procuring adoption of a clause which excluded...those who came to the country to avoid religious persecution, whether induced by overt acts, oppressive laws, or by governmental relations."

The cry of "persecution," has always been used to cover the crimes of the only people on earth whose very religion teaches them that murder and enslavement and cheating of all other peoples is a sacred right. We are told in The New York Jewish Communal Register, that the American Jewish Committee considered it "one of its most important functions to bend every effort toward the solution of the passport question."

This "solution" was to circumvent Russia, which sought to bar Russian-born Communist Jews, who came to the U.S.A. to get citizenship so as to return to Russia as American citizens, from using their immunity to steer the Communist Revolutionary overthrow of the Russian Christian government.

Russia had instructed its consuls to inquire of any applicants for passports to enter Russia from the U.S. and if they were Russian-born Jews, not to give them an entrance visa. The U.S. was at that time full of jailbird revolutionaries wanted in Russia, who thus sought to escape Russian law as American citizens. The aim of the American Jewish Committee was first to overthrow the Russian government, and later to sustain the Red butchers as they enslaved the Christian populace.

Note the sanctimonious "Hearts and Flowers" pose of the Committee about Russia "refusing to recognize the American passport in the hands of American citizens of the Jewish faith." And what is that holy "faith?" A criminal conspiracy against all humanity, against all civilized laws, all reciprocity, a code which makes that of gangsters seem benign.

Treaty With Russia Broken

Too often unmentioned today is the fact that, too many American lawyers believe, that under Article 6 of the United States Constitution, a treaty becomes the "supreme law of the land; and judges in every state shall be bound thereby; anything in the Constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding." Of course this is not true, but as long as they can convince the American people it is so, they can with one stroke, thereby, all State laws as well as the Constitution itself may be nullified by a treaty.

In our time, this has been done. The United Nations Charter, ratified by almost 100% of the Senate, was accepted by many lawyers and judges, became as a treaty the Supreme Law of the Land, anything in the Constitution or the laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding. The machinery to nullify our freedoms therefore is in place.

That the top American Jewish Committee was well aware of this provision of the Constitution back in 1917-18 when the New York Kehillah report was issued, is evident from the text. The reciprocal trade treaty of 1832 with Russia had to be broken. It had permitted Russia to have some say as to those from the U.S. it must admit through its borders. Russia retained some sovereignty which the Communist Revolutionary Jewry from Russia, armed with American citizenship, could not hurdle. The Jewish mob must be free to return to Russia and put over the Jewish revolution.

The New York Kehillah text states: "The Committee, after serious consideration, determined to recommend to the President the abrogation of the treaty with Russia, and on May 18, 1908, dispatched a letter to President Roosevelt. This began the attempt on the part of the organization to induce our Government to take some effective action to terminate the controversy. Correspondence with the same end in view was also had with President Taft and was supplemented by personal interviews with the President and with Secretaries of State, Root and Knox. (Schiff headed this delegation).

        The effect of the termination of the treaty, was the declaration of the national policy of the United States that it would not tolerate further discrimination against American citizens of the Jewish faith. Since treaties are, under the Constitution, the supreme law of the land, with the termination of the treaty there no longer exists a law which according to the Russian Government's contention was susceptible of the unconstitutional construction that our Government permitted discrimination against American citizens on account of race or religion.

        The action of President Taft and of the Congress of the United States was subsequently approved by all the great political parties of the country, in platform adopted by them in 1912, and again in 1916."

More of the background of these pre-revolutionary activities of the American Jewish Committee, which was headed by Jacob Schiff, was covered in the Henry Ford Dearborn Independent, in an article January, 1921 entitles: Taft Once Tried to Resist Jews and Failed. "Mr. Taft once stood out against the Jews, was strongly denounced as unfavorable to the Jews, was soundly beaten by the Jews on a matter on which he had taken a firm stand, and has ever since shown that he has learned his lesson by accommodating the Jews in their desires...

        For centuries Russia has had her own troubles with the Jews and, as the world knows, has at last fallen prostrate before Jewish power which for centuries, has been working to undermine her...The biggest hoax in modern times was the propaganda against Russia as the persecutor of the Jews. Russia devoted to the Jews a large part of the most favored section of the land, and was always lax in those laws which prohibited Jews from settling in other parts of the country that the Jew was able to create an underground system throughout the whole of Russia which controlled the grain trade, controlled public opinion, and utterly baffled the Czar's government. The cry of 'persecution' arose because the Jews were not permitted to exploit the peasants as much as they desired. They have, however, gained that privilege since."

Reports of American Ministers are quoted showing that while 1500 Jews were registered in St. Petersburg with the police, 30,000 were operating there illegally. Jewish editors and writers wielded power on "the leading newspapers of St. Petersburg and Moscow," and the liquor trade was entirely in Jewish hands. "At every turn the United States Government discovered that Jews were exaggerating their difficulties for the purpose of forcing governmental action...The Jews represented that their life in Russia was a hell...Presently, after years of underground work and open propaganda against Russian in the daily press, until the American conception against Russia was fixed almost beyond correction, the agitation took the form of the 'Russian passport question'...Jews demanded nothing less than that the United States should break all treaty relations with Russia. They demanded it."

How Jacob Schiff, Louis Marshall, Adolph Krauss and Judge Henry M. Fogle (Executive Committee members of the American Jewish Committee) walked in on President Taft at the White House, February 15, 1911, is described. They had demanded the conference, were dined at the White House luncheon table, but Taft insisted upon reading them his conclusions that the trade treaty of 1832 with Russia should not be broken as an exceptional favor to Jews, despite his sentiments in favor of Jewry.

At every stage of the game of take-over for Talmudism, the United States was used as a base of operations for "the synagogue of Satan" to put Christian Russia under the heel. Propaganda flooded this country which inculcated Americans with the conviction that the weak Czar with his outnumbered, out financed foes, wielded a blacksnake whip over little "angel" Jews, made to suffer just because they were presented to them as the "People of the Book."

We were taught that to the tune of millions of dollars spent by the American Jewish Committee and others. MacLeans noted: "The man chiefly responsible for the defeat of Russia was Trotsky." So we owe it to world wide Jewry and to a Jewish traitor by the name of Woodrow Wilson for the loss of 300,000 of America's finest men.

MacLean's ended the sensational article by declaring that the United States State Department under the direct orders from President Woodrow Wilson gave the British specific requests for the release of Trotsky declaring that he was traveling to Russia on a United States Passport. MacLeans ends with this line: "Trotsky had, and continues to have, strong underground influence. His power was so great that orders were issued that he must be given every consideration!"

President Woodrow Wilson had as his chief advisors the Jews powerful Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, financier Bernard Baruch and, yes, the Jewish banker Jacob Schiff. All three were interested in "freeing" the Jews of Russia. FREEDOM TO THE JEW IS WHEN THEY DOMINATE ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE AS WE TODAY WITNESS IN PALESTINE!

The Jew William Reswick in his book, I Dreamt Revolution quotes Trotsky as saying: "What we need here is an organizer like Bernard M. Baruch."

Thus Wilson sabotaged his own countries war effort by helping the Jews to destroy Russia, a loyal ally during the middle of a world war! And who had helped save the United States from being divided and destroyed by England, France and Spain during the American Civil War.

Jewish Bankers United Behind Trotsky

Sweden was chosen as the best "neutral" country for the transfer of financial aid to the Bolsheviks of Russia. The new Communist Government of Lenin and Trotsky chose the Jew Michael Gruzenberg to run this "money laundering" operation.

Trotsky's cousin who was the Jewish banker Abram Givatovzo and lived in Kiev before the revolution. Now he was moved to Sweden to help manage the Soviet currency transactions beginning in 1918. The World War waged on until its end on November 11, 1918. But through the end of 1917 Germany continued sending money by way of the Jewish agent Israel Helphand in Denmark. He, in turn, passed it on to, the Jew Jacob Furstenberg who was Lenin's banker. Once the war was over the defeated Germans were horrified at the monster they had helped to install in power over Russia. German Army General Staff. Maj. General Hoffman, stated: "We neither knew nor foresaw the danger to humanity from the consequences of this journey of the Bolsheviks to Russia!"

Germans Worry About The Misuse of The Jewish Money Power

The German Under-secretary of State, Brockdorff-Rantzau, first realized the advantages and the potential danger of using Jewish bankers to undermine the Czar. On August 14, 1915, after meeting with Israel Helphand he wrote: "He is an extraordinary man whose unusual powers we must employ for the duration of the war. It might perhaps be risky to want to use the powers ranged behind Helphand, (Meaning the super-rich Jew bankers), but it would certainly be an admission of our own weakness if we were to refuse their services out of fear of not being able to direct them."

United States Intelligence Agent Exposed The Jewish Bankers

"The Sisson Report" was based on a collection of Soviet documents obtained by U.S. Intelligence agent Edgar G. Sisson while serving in Petrograd. "Document No. 64" reports that the Jew banker Max Warburg of Hamburg on September 21, 1917 provided Trotsky with an "account" for the purchase of arms.

Document No. 64

"Stockholm, September 21, 1917. Mr. Raphael Scholan (Schaumann), Haparanda.  Dear Commrade: The office of the banking house M. Warburg has opened in accordance with telegram from President of Rhenish-Westphalian Syndicate an account for the undertaking of Comrade Trotsky. The attorney (agent) purchased arms and has organized their transportation and delivery up to Luleo and Varde. Name to the office of Essen & Son in Luleo, receivers, and a person authorized to receive the money demanded by Comrade Trotsky. -- J. Furstenberg."

     Note: This is the first reference to Trotsky, and connects him with Banker Max Warburg and Furstenberg. Luleo and Varde are Swedish towns, the former near to Haparanda, which on the border of Sweden and Finland. Also, Document No. 63 shows 32,000 Francs by the Jew banker Furstenberg for revolutionary propaganda (Which they refer to as "Socialist Pamphlets.").

Document No. 63

"Geneva, June 16, 1917. -- Mr. Furstenberg, Stockholm: Please note that at the request of Mr. Katz, francs 32,000 (82,000) have been paid for the publication of Maximalist-Socialist pamphlets. Advise by telegram addressed to Decker of the receipt of the consignment of pamphlets, number of bill of lading, and date of arrival. -- (Signed) Kriek, Deutsche Bank."

     Note: Furstenberg is named in Document No. 54 and is Ganetsky in Petrograd. Furstenberg was the banker who raised money from the German Government for transfer to the Bolsheviks. The "Sisson Report" mentions the name of Olof Aschberg the Jew banker from Sweden. In 1917, he was the director of the Nya Bank in Stockholm.

Sisson Report

U.S. State Department Decimal File, 861.516/129, dated August 28, 1922. A State Department report from Stockholm, dated October 9, 1922 (861.516/137), states in regard to Aschberg, "I met Mr. Aschberg some weeks ago and in the conversation with him he substantially stated all that appeared in this report. He also asked me to inquire whether he could visit the United States and gave as references some of the prominent banks. In connection with this, however, I desire to call the department's attention to Document 54 of the Sisson Documents, and also to many other dispatches which this legation wrote concerning this man during the war, whose reputation and standing is not good. He is undoubtedly working closely in connection with the Soviets, and during the entire war he was in close co-operation with the Germans." (U.S. State Department Decimal File, 861.516/137, Stockholm, October 9, 1922. The report was signed by Ira N. Morris)

It should be noted that on November 28, 1917, President Woodrow Wilson ordered that there be no interference on the part of American diplomats in Europe with the Bolshevik Revolution which was then underway in Russia. The United States had entered World War One on April 11, 1917. Thus the U.S. had already been in the war for 7 months before his order.

This should have been considered as Treason because the Bolshevik Revolution succeeded in taking our Ally Russia out of the war. Experts say this made the war last at least one year longer. Which cost the better part of 300,000 American men to lose their lives! Woodrow Wilson was obviously more interested in appeasing his brother Jews than he was in saving the lives of our American Military men! Today we have a very similar situation in Palestine where U.S. leaders place the interests of the Jewish Zionists over American interests.

   1). 1918-1919: The Treaty of Brest-Litovsk, signed March 15, 1918, between Russia and Germany removed Russia from the side of the Allies, added to the political chaos within Russia, and caused additional political and military problems for the Allies. On June 2, 1918, the Allied Supreme War Council voted for military intervention at Murmansk and Archangel in North Russia by a force of mixed nationalities under British command. The original objectives of the expedition were limited: to establish a rallying point for those Czech troops inside Russia who were still loyal to the Allies, to guard the supplies sent to the northern ports for the Imperial Russian Army, and to prevent the establishment of German naval bases at the northern ports.

On July 17, 1918, President Woodrow Wilson agreed with his Jewish advisors to furnish American troops for the intervention of this plan. On August 9, 1918, the 339th Infantry Regiment, 1st Battalion of the 310th Engineers, 337th Field Hospital, and 337th Ambulance Company, all elements of the 85th Infantry Division, were officially designated the "Murmansk Expedition."

On August 27 the expedition, consisting of 143 officers and 4,344 enlisted men under the command of Lt. Col. George E. Stewart, sailed from Newcastle-on-Tyne in England and arrived at Archangel on September 4 where, with other Allied forces, it became part of the command of Maj. Gen. F.C. Poole, British Army. American troops soon began to deploy along the front 450 miles long, extending from Onega in the west to Pinega in the east, and at some points 200 miles distant from Archangel the site of Headquarters, AEF, North Russia, and also Allied Headquarters.

Between September 1918 and May 1919 troops of AEF, North Russia, suffered over 500 casualties (mostly Americans) in combat against the Russian 6th and 7th Armies. In addition to the troops composing AEF, North Russia, there were two other American contingents in the area. The American Military Mission to Russia, headed by Col. James A. Ruggles and including several assistant military attaches, reported on significant political and military events to the War Department and to David Francis, U.S. Ambassador to the Provisional (Bolshevik) Government of the Northern Provinces.

The North Russia Transportation Corps Expeditionary Forces, consisting of the 167th (Operations) and 168th (Maintenance) Companies, Transportation Corps, were sent to Murmansk in march and April 1919 to operate and maintain the Murmansk Railway so that a line of withdrawal for the icebound Allied force at Archangel might be kept open. Maj. Edward E. MacMorland commanded this contingent, which operated and maintained the Murmansk Railway from its headquarters at Soroka.

Early in 1919 President Wilson and his chief advisers decided it was time to withdraw all American forces from North Russia (Their mission had been completed and to prevent an international scandal they were withdrawn). During May 1919 Brig. Gen. Wilds Richardson, who had assumed command of all U.S. forces in north Russia on April 9, began to concentrate AEF, North Russia, around Archangel preparatory to return to the United States via Brest, France. By June 27 the last of AEF, North Russia, had left for Brest. On July 28 the North Russia Transportation Corps Expeditionary Forces left Murmansk for Brest, and on August 5, 1919, Headquarters, AEF, North Russia, was discontinued.

   2). 1919-1920: After many months of prodding by America's Allies and top advisers in the State Department, President Woodrow Wilson agreed in early July 1918 to permit limited U.S. participation in an Allied expedition to Siberia.

Among the reasons Wilson gave for this move by the United States were: to extricate Czechoslovak Armed Forces from Siberia who had been attempting to reach the Western Front; to guard allied military stores at Vladivostok; and to aid the Russian (Bolshevik) people themselves in "self-government and self-defense."

Soon after Wilson's announcement, the War Department made speedy preparations for the transfer of the 27th and 31st Infantry Regiments from the Philippine Islands to Vladivostok. In addition, Maj. Gen. William Graves, who was designated commander of the expedition, received orders to select an additional 5,000 men and officers from his 8th Division stationed at Camp Fremont, Calif., to supplement these two infantry regiments.

On August 3, 1918, orders were sent from the Adjutant General in Washington to the two regiments in the Philippines and to Graves in California to embark for Vladivostok, where they were to establish American Headquarters. The bulk of the expeditionary forces landed in Siberia between August 15 and September 2.

Immediately upon arrival, elements of the 27th and 31st Infantry Regiments took up guard duty along the Ussuri Railroad line from Vladivostok to Nikolsk. During late August and September the remainder of the 27th Infantry under Col. Henry Styer participated in an Allied offensive that pushed back Russian forces in the Spasskoe-Ussuri region. By November most of this fighting had subsided, and the primary tasks of the AEF in Siberia became railroad garrison duty, care of prisoners of war, and guarding Allied supplies at Vladivostok.

In the Spring of 1919, an inter-Allied agreement on guarding the Trans-Siberian Railroad resulted in the assignment of American forces to several widely separated sections of the railroad line: Vladivostok to Nikolsk-Ussuri, Ugolnaya to the Suchan Mines, Spasskoe to Ussuri, and (1,700 miles further west) Verkhne-Udinsk to Mysovaya.

During the period May through August 1919, the garrisons at Ugolnays, Ussuri, Razodolnoe, the Suchan Mines, and Shkotovo sustained the heaviest casualties of the expedition because of strikes, riots, and Russian guerrilla activity. Conditions were so bad that American forces were removed from Shkotovo and the Suchan Mines in August.

Other American garrisons, however, maintained their stations until January 9, 1920, when the War Department ordered the entire AEF in Siberia to assemble at Vladivostok in order to return to Manila (The Bolshevik takeover was complete). On April 1, 1920, General Graves closed his headquarters, and the last American units departed from Siberia.

February 15, 1918, U.S. Secretary of State Robert Lansing warned French Ambassador J.J. Jusserand, "It is considered inadvisable to take any action which will antagonize at this time any of the various elements of the people which now control the power in Russia." Again the power of the Jew prevailed.

Sweden's Nya Bank, founded in 1912, was soon taken over by the Jew Olof Aschberg. He was the chief international financier of the Bolshevik Revolution. His close associates included Carl Furstenberg (Named in the "Sisson Report"). He was the first to serve as "Finance Minister" for the new Communist Government. Next was Max May, vice-president in charge of foreign operations for Guaranty Trust Bank in New York City. Aschberg was so close to Max May that he published a picture of May in his autobiography.

Aschberg was even the Russian Czar's banker before 1917. On August 4, 1916, Aschberg was in New York City to arrange a $50-million loan for Czarist Russia. He secretly met with Jacob Schiff where the two plotted the downfall of the Czar; who was later massacred along with his entire family by a fanatical band of reds led by a Jewish Bolshevist. Thus Aschberg could smile and ingratiate himself with the Czar while working for his destruction! After all, was not money and "freedom for Jews" in Russia the goal of all true "Lovers of Democracy?"

Aschberg Takes Over Soviet Bank

The Communist in Russia founded their first state bank in 1922. It was called "The Ruskom Bank." Lenin named none other than Olof Aschberg to head this new bank! A U.S. State Department telegram from Stockholm dated October 9, 1922, warned against doing business with Aschberg adding, "...whose reputation and standing is not good." It should also be noted that the Jew, Max May, who was employed by the Guaranty Trust Bank of New York, was made a director of the Soviet Ruskom Bank in 1922. There can be no doubt that without the unlimited resources of the "Jewish Bankers" there never would have been a Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in the first place. Communist Jews in Russia were financed into power by Jewish Bankers!

The German Government during World War One never dreamed what a tragedy would follow their support of the Bolsheviks. At least this error was realized and admitted too by Kaiser Wilheim II in a statement he gave The Chicago Tribune of July 2, 1922 stating: "The Jews are responsible for Bolshevism in Russia, and Germany too. I was far too indulgent with them during my reign, and I bitterly regret the favors I showed to prominent Jewish bankers."

Document No. 57

"Circular, November 2, 1914. From the Imperial Bank to the representatives of the Nia-Banken and the agents of the Diskonto Gesellschaft and of the Deusche-Bank: Both the mentioned persons addressed themselves to several financial men, who for their part addressed themselves to our representatives. We are ready to support the agitation and propaganda projected by them in Russia on the (one) absolute condition that the agitation and propaganda noted (planned) by the above-mentioned Messrs. Zinovieff and Lunacharsky will touch the active armies at the front. In case the agents of the Imperial Bank should address themselves to your banks we beg you to open them the necessary credit which will be covered completely as soon as you make demand on Berlin. -- (Signed) Risser."

Addition as part of the document: Zinovieff and Lunacharsky got in touch with Imperial Bank of Germany through the bankers, D. Rubenstein, Max Warburg, and Parvus. Zinovieff addressed himself to Rubenstein and Lunacharsky through Altvater to Warburg, through whom he found support in Parvus.

     Note: Lunacharsky is the present People's Commissioner of Education. Parvus and Warburg both figure in the Lenin and Trotsky documents. Parvus was an agent at Copenhagen. (See "New Europe," January 31, 1918, pages 94-95). Warburg is believed to have been lately in Petrograd.

        Zionist Worldwide Boycott Against German
        Merchandise Creates Domestic Crisis

Rabbi Maurice L. Perlman, the head of the British Section of the World Jewish Congress, stated to a Canadian audience and was reported by the Toronto Evening Telegram of February 26, 1940, that: "THE WORLD JEWISH CONGRESS HAS BEEN AT WAR WITH GERMANY FOR SEVEN YEARS."

Senator Wayne Morse of Oregon, delivered an address on December 20, 1951, and was reported in The National Jewish Post of Indianapolis of December 28, 1951, in which he stated: "One of the major cause for our going to war against Hitler as the persecution of the Jews in Germany."

Dr. Donald C. Blaisdell, at that time was the professor of government at the College of the City of New York, published an important document entitled American Policy for the Near East in a publication called Issues published in New York, the official organ of the American Council for Judaism, in the fall issue in 1959, in which Dr. Blaisdell stated: "No minority of Irish, of German, of Polish, Italian, or Greek extraction has been able to manipulate policy to its advantage as have the Zionist leaders of American Jews. Nor does there appear to be any politically feasible means by which the American government can place the claims of its important clientele in proper perspective. Like American Jews who are presumed to be members of Israel's American clientele are never allowed to forget it, so the American Government, Congress and Executive branch alike, is never permitted to free itself from the pressure propaganda and power emanating from the same Zionist sources."

Jewish Influence In Germany Before World War II

An extract from Schonere Zukunft of November 13, 1932, from Dr. Joseph Eberle, will show the extent of Jewish control of German life before World War II. Schonere Zukunft was a Viennese Catholic weekly directed by Dr. Eberle: "Today, Catholics are almost completely silent about the question of Judaism, though Jewish influence, not only in Russia, Hungary, Poland, France, England, America and Austria, but also in Germany, has attained a degree of power and might, altogether out of proportion to the number of Jews in the total populations of these countries. Three-fourths of the large banking concerns, at the head of which we must place the four big D-Banks; Deutsche Bank, Darmstadter Bank, Diskonto-Gesellschaft and Dresdener Bank, three-fourths of the big exchanges, including those of Berlin, Frankfort and Hamburg, three-fourths of the principal commercial enterprises, including those of Karstadt, Tietz and Werheim, three-fourths of the leading newspapers, of the publishing firms, of the telegraphic and advertising agencies, of the groups controlling theaters and cinemas, are Jewish.

        In Austria, matters are still worse. Of course, there are still many non-Jewish industrial magnates, but they are becoming more and more subservient to banks directed by Jews. There are certainly still to be found rich landed proprietors and wealthy financiers who are Christians, BUT SO FAR AS THE ECONOMIC AFFAIRS IS CONCERNED, THEY ARE WITHOUT INFLUENCE, IN COMPARISON WITH JEWISH FINANCIAL MAGNATES, such as Charles Furstenberg, Dr. Solmssen, Mammroth, Bleichroder, Speyer-Ellissen, Sobernheim, Landau, Arnhold, Dr. Solamonsohn, Eugen Gutman, Von Straus, Kempner, Freiherr von Oppenheim, Warburg, etc.

        There are still influential Catholic publishing firms, but even firms like those of Herder and Kosel-Pustet are much inferior to the Jewish publishing firms of Ullstein, Mosse, Cassirer, E. Goldschmidt, etc. There are many non-Jewish writers, nevertheless we learn from statistics of the publishing business that, in Germany, foreign and Jewish authors are more widely read than German and Christian authors, so that Borries von Munchausen speaks of the passing of the German soul.

        It can be established also that the best known non-Jewish men of letters, as for example Gerhart Hauptmann and Sudermann, owe their literary success to their friendliness towards Judaism. Such are the intellectual and economic power and influence of Jews in Germany today. And yet Christians in great measure keep silence about the matter. This silence is, in part, due to ignorance, especially in the provinces. But it is also due to an already existing dependence on Jews. Three-fourths of the Christian newspapers would be reduced to two-thirds or even one-half of their present size, if they were compelled to give up the advertisements of Jewish shops and banks, and Jewish advertisements would not be forthcoming if the Jewish question were treated."

Now the movement which centers round the figure of Hitler has reacted against the state of affairs outlined by Dr. Eberle. The Jewish claim to be the race and nation destined by God to mould other nations, this is the metaphysically necessary significance of their looking forward to another Messiahs, has led to a partial conflict. The conflict is, however, not so serious as a great portion of the Press of the world would have us believe. Mr. H. Belloc writes as follows in G.K.'s Weekly, May 18, 1933: "I do not think that the way in which the Jews have been treated by Prussia, abominable as it is, will lead to any particularly bad consequences for Prussia itself. I think that if Prussia gets into trouble, it will be through her own grotesquely swollen head and her consequent total misunderstanding of her true position among national forces today.

        Already I see the Jews throughout the Press of the world making excuses for Prussia; and I note that NO GREAT JEWISH BANKER HAS SUFFERED AT THE HANDS OF THE PRUSSIANS, which is significant! I also note that the great Frankfort paper which is the chief expression of Jewish policy in Europe welcomes the new Prussian regime."
