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

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 32nd degree mason and Shriner.

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 ..."
