Winston Churchill joined the military as a youth, fought in many wars, escaped POW camp and then rejoined the military, resisted appeasers and was there at D-Day.

Appeaser Barack Obama played golf, was nowhere to be found during Benghazi, lied about his past and removed Churchill’s bust from the White House.

Obama did however heal the planet in 2008.

    Obama did not remove Churchill’s bust from the Whitehouse.

    • PJ London says:

      Quite right, he moved it from the Oval Office, where he would have to look at it each day, to the Treaty room, where no one would ever look at it.
      I have no idea what or where the Treaty room is, but pictures present a row of porcelain basins stuck against the wall. G W Bush said it was one of his favourite rooms, and Obama spends a lot of time there.

  2. Bryan says:

    Is this fair?

    Try George W Bush and Churchill for comparison
    Military record for Bush …….stayed at home safe!

    • Gail Combs says:

      Who said any of us think highly of The Bush, The Shrub., or The Twig? I can’t stand any of them. None were ever for anyone but themselves and their international corporate buddies.

      The Bush made the first stab at getting WTO ratified. When he failed they switched parties, as they did with the Federal Reserve Act and got it ratified under Clinton. The Shrub gave us the UN-Patriot Act while helping Saudi’s leave the US during the Airport lock downs after 9-11. He also gave us the Bank Bailouts where American Tax Payer money was shipped out of the country to help the International bankers instead of using the $$$ to help Americans stay in their homes. There is a lot more nasties of course. Given the low polling numbers of the Twig, I think most Republicans and Independents have seen through the hype and want nothing to do with a re-run from that family of traitors.

      If you want a comparison pick someone most of us agree was the best president of our lifetime/the 20th Century. We were just discussing that yesterday starting HERE – IKE

    • RAH says:

      LOL! Always the same. It’s all about GWB!

      I researched GWBs military record long ago. Bush was a pilot of an F-102 which was the USAFs first supersonic all weather interceptor and introduced “fly by wire” technology. Bush was promoted twice and had excellent Officer Evaluation Reports during his service with the Texas ANG. His unit, the 111th Fighter Squadron was never deployed to Vietnam where the F-102 was used in limited numbers as an interceptor and bomber escort from 1962 to 68. Though over 1,000 ANG personnel did Volunteer to serve in Vietnam. However Bush wasn’t even commissioned as an officer until 1968 and did not finish his initial pilot training until June 1970! The Peace Talks had began in January 1969 and by the end of that year US commitment of forces to Vietnam was winding down. With the US commitment to the war winding down in the early 70s many Active duty personnel, including pilots, were returning home and opting for service in reserve components, including the ANG. Thus Bush like many others were allowed to leave the service prior to the fulfillment of their original enlistment commitments. Context, Context, Context.

      BTW Eisenhower stayed home and safe during WW I!

    But, but………HE hunted down and killed OBL! Just ask him!

  4. Andy DC says:

    Churchill never stopped a Category 2 hurricane anytime during his life, thus Obama obviously has provided far greater leadership.

    Unfortunately, Obama was unable to stop Superstorm Sandy, but his passionate lovefest on the beach with Governor Christie inspired and healed the nation during one of its darkest hours.

    Good point Gail I had not read the previous thread.
    I would be regarded as a libertarian socialist but I have much in common with the libertarian conservative outlook.
    Churchill was an outstanding personality and war leader.
    He had his flaws though.
    For instance he was quite able to sit with Stalin and divide up the world into ‘spheres of influence’ after WWII.
    Poland 90% soviet ,10% UK
    Greece 90% UK, 10% soviet and so on.

    His big contribution to the World was an early recognition of the NAZI menace.
    In 1939 he thought that the Red Army occupation of the East Baltic was preferential to the other practical alternative, the Wehrmacht.

    On US Presidents, Franklin D. Roosevelt is similarly highly regarded for pulling the USA out of the deadly slump.
    What else is he remembered for?

      How is this a flaw”?

      He was a brilliant analyst and writer.
      “[Had the US not entered WWI] … peace would have been made with Germany; and there would have been no collapse in Russia leading to Communism; no breakdown of government in Italy followed by Fascism; and Nazism never would have gained ascendancy in Germany.”
      Winston Churchill, Social Justice Magazine, July 3 (1939

      No t bery nice man, but brilliant
      “We will force this war upon Hitler, if he wants it or not.” — Winston Churchill (1936 broadcast)
      “Germany becomes too powerful. We have to crush it.” — Winston Churchill (November 1936 speaking to US – General Robert E. Wood)

      “The war wasn’t only about abolishing fascism, but to conquer sales markets. We could have, if we had intended so, prevented this war from breaking out without doing one shot, but we didn’t want to.” —  Winston Churchill to Truman (Fultun, USA March 1946)

      “Germany’s unforgivable crime before WW2 was its attempt to loosen its economy out of the world trade system and to build up an independent exchange system from which the world-finance couldn’t profit anymore. …We butchered the wrong pig.” — Winston Churchill  (The Second World War – Bern, 1960)

      • Gail Combs says:

        Thanks, I was wondering what the back story on that was. The victors write the history and Americans have been fed complete falsehoods for years.

        A bit more on WWI
        The USA was dragged into WWI by JP Morgan and friends in the war business by capturing the news media in 1915. J.P Morgan has been in control of the MSM ever since. link

        . False Flag at Sea: The Lusitania, Woodrow Wilson, and the Deceptions that Dragged America into World War I ( The Lusitania, a British ocean line)

        the British used the Lusitania to ferry heavy loads of munitions from America to Britain. Since the U.S. government disallowed shipment of most munitions on passenger ships, the British got around this by submitting falsified manifests for the Lusitania….

        The Germans had little choice but to try to stop the Lusitania’s munitions from reaching England. But neither did they wish to provoke America by harming its citizens. On April 22, they ordered a conspicuous warning placed in fifty newspapers near the Cunard sailing notices, alerting potential passengers to the danger. This would have given the public a week’s notice. However, a State Department officer ordered the warning’s publication suppressed. On April 26, George Viereck, representing the Germans, obtained an audience with Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan. Bryan immediately cleared the notice for publication, and also urged President Wilson to warn Americans. Wilson, however, always on the bankers’ puppet strings, declined to do so….

        Later the book Why Is Your Country at War by Congressman C.A. Lindbergh 1917 was censored. (So much for free speech)

        …On a spring day in 1918 several government agents entered a print shop at Washington, D. C., where the original edition of this book was being printed. “Destroy all the Lindbergh plates in your plant,” they told the head of the institution. He was forced to comply. The hysteria of wartime brooked no delays. Not only were the plates of this book “Why Is Your Country at War ?“ destroyed, but also the plates of Congressman Lindbergh’s book “Banking and Currency,” written in 1913 and attacking the big bankers and Federal Reserve Law….

        SELLING WAR
        In the light of things now happening in the 21st Century this book’s most uncanny predictions of economic trends are more relevant today than ever.

        • PJ London says:

          “‘In the early years of the War great efforts were made by the Zionist Leaders, Dr. Weizmann and Mr. Sokolow, chiefly through the late Mr. C. P. Scott of the Manchester Guardian, and Sir Herbert Samuel, to induce the Cabinet to espouse the cause of Zionism.

          ‘These efforts were, however, without avail. In fact, Sir Herbert Samuel has publicly stated that he had no share in the initiation of the negotiations which led to the Balfour Declaration. (England and Palestine, a lecture delivered by Sir Herbert Samuel and published by the Jewish Historical Society, February 1936.) The actual initiator was Mr. James A. Malcolm and the following is a brief account of the circumstances in which the negotiations took place.

          ‘During the critical days of 1916 and of the impending defection of Russia, Jewry, as a whole, was against the Czarist regime and had hopes that Germany, if victorious, would in certain circumstances give them Palestine. Several attempts to bring America into the War on the side of the Allies by influencing influential Jewish opinion were made and had failed. Mr. James A. Malcolm, who was already aware of German pre-war efforts to secure a foothold in Palestine through the Zionist Jews and of the abortive Anglo-French démarches at Washington and New York; and knew that Mr. Woodrow Wilson, for good and sufficient reasons, ”
          “‘An interesting account of the negotiations carried on in London and Paris, and subsequent developments, has already appeared in the Jewish press and need not be repeated here in detail, except to recall that immediately after the ‘gentleman’s’ agreement between Sir Mark Sykes, authorized by the War Cabinet, and the Zionist leaders, cable facilities through the War Office, the Foreign Office and British Embassies, Legations, etc., were given to the latter to communicate the glad tidings to their friends and organizations in America and elsewhere, and the change in official and public opinion as reflected in the American press in favour of joining the Allies in the War, was as gratifying as it was surprisingly rapid.

          ‘The Balfour Declaration, in the words of Prof. H. M. V. Temperley, was a “definite contract between the British Government and Jewry” (History of the Peace Conference in Paris, vol. 6, p. 173). The main consideration given by the Jewish people (represented at the time by the leaders of the Zionist Organization) was their help in bringing President Wilson to the aid of the Allies. Moreover, officially interpreted at the time by Lord Robert Cecil as ‘Judea for the Jews’ in the same sense as ‘Arabia for the Arabs’, the Declaration sent a thrill throughout the world. The prior Sykes-Picot Treaty of 1916, according to which Northern Palestine was to be politically detached and included in Syria (French sphere), was subsequently, at the instance of the Zionist leaders, amended (by the Franco-British Convention of December 1920, Cmd. 1195) so that the Jewish National Home should comprise the whole of Palestine in accordance with the promise previously made to them for their services by the British, Allied and American Governments, and to give full effect to the Balfour Declaration, the terms of which had been settled and known to all Allied and associated belligerents, including Arabs, before they were made public.”
          Quid pro Quo, and screwed the Arabs and the world.

      • Gail Combs says:

        PJ,
        It would seem that Gadhafi’s fall from grace was the same reason that Germany got whacked during WWI.

        Gadhafi’s Gold-money Plan Would Have Devastated Dollar
        It remains unclear exactly why or how the Gadhafi regime went from “a model” and an “important ally” to the next target for regime change in a period of just a few years. But after claims of “genocide” as the justification for NATO intervention were disputed by experts, several other theories have been floated.

        Oil, of course, has been mentioned frequently — Libya is Africa‘s largest oil producer. But one possible reason in particular for Gadhafi’s fall from grace has gained significant traction among analysts and segments of the non-Western media: central banking and the global monetary system.

        According to more than a few observers, Gadhafi’s plan to quit selling Libyan oil in U.S. dollars — demanding payment instead in gold-backed “dinars” (a single African currency made from gold) — was the real cause. The regime, sitting on massive amounts of gold, estimated at close to 150 tons, was also pushing other African and Middle Eastern governments to follow suit….

        The BRICS countries are doing the same challenging the international bankers and suddenly Russia is on the sh…t list and China is headed that way.

        Can you say WWIII?

        • PJ London says:

          Sorry Gail I think you are referring to WWII.

          “Hitler’s economic miracle
          The Nazis came to power in Germany in 1933, at a time when its economy was in total collapse, with ruinous war-reparation obligations and zero prospects for foreign investment or credit. Yet through an independent monetary policy of sovereign credit and a full-employment public-works program, the Third Reich was able to turn a bankrupt Germany, stripped of overseas colonies it could exploit, into the strongest economy in Europe within four years, even before armament spending began. In fact, German economic recovery preceded and later enabled German rearmament, in contrast to the US economy, where constitutional roadblocks placed by the US Supreme Court on the New Deal delayed economic recovery until US entry to World War II put the US market economy on a war footing. While this observation is not an endorsement for Nazi philosophy, the effectiveness of German economic policy in this period, some of which had been started during the last phase of the Weimar Republic, is undeniable. ”

          Again Churchill nailed it referring to WWI
          He said : ”
          “Should Germany merchandise (?active dominant trading??) again in the next 50 years we have led this war (WW1) in vain.” — Winston Churchill in Times (1919)

          The biggest fear in Europe for the last 400 years is that Russia (with its’ resources) and Germany (with its’ industry) become allies. Still scares the crap out of the Anglo-Americs.
          Thus the latest war on Russia, they got too friendly with Merkel. However thanks to NSA she saw the light.

        • Gail Combs says:

          I do not have the time to dig them all out but Germany after WWI got the money for her rebuilding from the American bankers so America was stripped of her wealth and it was given to Germany to pay for the public works. Remember Warburg was a German Jew and the Federal Reserve was his.

          Here is one:
          McFadden Speech before Congress.

          …”Mr. Chairman, there is nothing like the Fed pool of confiscated bank deposits in the world. It is a public trough of American wealth in which the foreigners claim rights, equal to or greater than Americans. The Fed are the agents of the foreign central banks. They use our bank depositors’ money for the benefit of their foreign principals. They barter the public credit of the United States Government and hire it our to foreigners at a profit to themselves.

          “All this is done at the expense of the United States Government, and at a sickening loss to the American people. Only our great wealth enabled us to stand the drain of it as long as we did.

          “We need to destroy the Fed wherein our national reserves are impounded for the benefit of the foreigners. “We need to save America for Americans.

          …”While we are attempting to enforce prohibition here, the Fed are in the distillery business in Europe and paying bootlegger bills with public credit of these United States. “Mr. Chairman, by the same process, they compel our Government to pay the German brewer for his beer. Why should the Fed be permitted to finance the brewing industry in Germany either in this way or as they do by compelling small and fearful United States Banks to take stock in the Isenbeck Brewery and in the German Bank for brewing industries? “Mr. Chairman, if Dynamit Nobel of Germany, wishes to sell dynamite in Japan to use in Manchuria or elsewhere, it can drew its bill against the Japanese customers in dollars and send that bill to the nefarious open discount market in New York City where the Fed will buy it and use it as collateral for a new issue of Fed Notes- while at the same time the Fed will be helping Dynamit Nobel by stuffing its stock into the United States banking system.

          “Why should we send our representatives to the disarmament conference at Geneva- while the Fed is making our Government pay Japanese debts to German Munitions makers?

          “Mr. Chairman, if a German wishes to raise a crop of beans and sell them to a Japanese customer, he can draw a bill against his prospective Japanese customer in dollars and have it purchased by the Fed and get the money out of this Country at the expense of the American people before he has even planted the beans in the ground. “Mr. Chairman, if a German in Germany wishes to export goods to South America, or any other Country, he can draw his bill against his customers and send it to these United States and get the money out of this Country before he ships, or even manufactures the goods.

          “Mr. Chairman, why should the currency of these United States be issued on the strength of German Beer? Why should it be issued on the crop of unplanted beans to be grown in Chili for Japanese consumption? Why should these United States be compelled to issue many billions of dollars every year to pay the debts of one foreigner to another foreigner? “Was it for this that our National Bank depositors had their money taken out of our banks and shipped abroad? Was it for this that they had to lose it? Why should the public credit of these United States and likewise money belonging to our National Bank depositors be used to support foreign brewers, narcotic drug vendors, whiskey distillers, wig makes, human hair merchants, Chilean bean growers, to finance the munition factories of Germany and Soviet Russia?…

      “..On US Presidents, Franklin D. Roosevelt is similarly highly regarded for pulling the USA out of the deadly slump. What else is he remembered for?…..”

      Actually he is more honestly remembered for:
      1. Prolonging the depression via major interference with the market.
      How FDR Made the Depression Worse

      2. Confiscating American civilian gold by Executive order and giving it to the international bankers. Executive Order 6102 signed on April 5, 1933 authorized the confiscation of private gold. That gold was supposed to support the US dollar however the actual deal was, while citizens could not swap gold for paper money foreign bankers could so the gold flowed out of the USA into international banking coffers until Nixon in desperation closed the door and took the dollar off the gold standard. Only foreigners were legally able to turn in their US dollars and get gold from the US Government from 1934 to 1971.

      As a result of FDR Fort Knox is likely empty. The FED has been resisting a real audit for years.
      The Great American Disaster: How Much Gold Remains In Fort Knox?

      …The peak amount of gold held in Fort Knox reached 701 million ounces of gold. This was in 1949. This amount equaled 69.9% of all the gold in the world; never before had so much gold been gathered in one place.

      But soon after that, gold began to leave Ft Knox and was shipped to the foreign persons and institutions who ponied up their $35 in Federal Reserve Notes for each troy ounce of gold they wanted. At some point in the 1950s, $35 became too cheap a price for gold.

      From then until 1972, at least 75% of official US gold left the nation in exchange for paper dollars which can be printed at will.

      In 1988, 22 years ago, I wrote a book about Fort Knox, the gold there, and the documented history of official lies, evasions and incompetence of those who were entrusted with the gold.

      I say “documented history” because when writing the book, I was very careful to only include official documents and private correspondence from the US government, stretching from 1934 to 1987. Using their own responses to the questions of just how much gold is left, and what that gold’s quality is, for the first time this book put all these governmental attempts to answer the questions about their own gold policies in one place. What their responses revealed was shocking to me.

      Nothing since 1988 has happened to change my views…

      Has the Federal Reserve Sold the Gold at Fort Knox?

      • Gail Combs says:

        The most treasonous act of FDR was his international agreement to destroy US Sovereignty.

        ….Half a century ago, those who designed the post-war system — the United Nations, the Bretton Woods system, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) — were deeply influenced by the shared lessons of history.

        All had lived through the chaos of the 1930s — when turning inwards led to economic depression, nationalism and war. All, including the defeated powers, agreed that the road to peace lay with building a new international order — and an approach to international relations that questioned the Westphalian, sacrosanct principle of sovereignty….
        http://www.theglobalist.com/pascal-lamy-whither-globalization/

        Explanation:
        FDRs term in office was from March 4, 1933 – April 12, 1945 so he is the one who agreed to ” building a new international order — and an approach to international relations that questioned the Westphalian, sacrosanct principle of sovereignty”

        Westphalian principle of sovereignty

        Westphalian sovereignty is the principle of international law that each nation state has sovereignty over its territory and domestic affairs, to the exclusion of all external powers, on the principle of non-interference in another country’s domestic affairs, and that each state (no matter how large or small) is equal in international law. The doctrine is named after the Peace of Westphalia, signed in 1648. — WIKI

        Franklin Roosevelt, My Exploited Father-in-Law by DALL Curtis

        INSTITUTE FOR HISTORICAL REVIEW

        In FDR: My Exploited Father-in-Law, Col. Curtis B. Dall writes from close personal experience concerning the famous four-time President, his family, political associates, and some of the momentous events which still strongly influence world history..
        >>>>>>>>>>>

        [Col. Curtis B. Dall writes]
        A number of my observations may surprise some readers. I did not have to research. I was there, as a rule, not just a holder of a seat up frond[t] Hence, certain areas of this book will appear to be at variance with some other books….

        The American people are not reared and trained to become international-minded schemers. As a result, we have become the ready victims of those who have been reared and steeped in that type of training. In addition, as a people, we are too inclined to hedonism, deeply absorbed in a program of pleasure. Toward that end, we are being encouraged and daily “moulded” by our foreign-influenced press, radio, and TV programs. We are encouraged to become absorbed in the trivial, for obvious reasons, by dedicated world-planners. Many of us are prone to feel that our political status, even our freedom and our liberty in the U.S.A. are secure. But, along with that great amateur internationalist, Woodrow Wilson, we took our perilous seat in 1913 on his nefarious political toboggan, and we are now nearing the bottom of that disastrous run. Then came another disastrous toboggan run with FDR and his successors. Where do we go from here?

        Let us not fool ourselves. The wealth, freedom and liberty of the American people are being stolen and steadily nibbled away. Today, as easy suckers, we are buying many over-priced, political “benefits,” all paid for, of course, with our own hard-earned money! We have also been goaded into trying to run the affairs of other nations which yields a fine profit for the world money powers who are in-the-know on credits and markets. Whether you realize it or not, that has all been planned for you in just that way.….

        .
        Feel-good socialism is the sheepskin our would be masters wrap themselves in.

        Progressives/Socialists/Communists/Fabians are very very good at taking a word or concept and twisting it to their advantage. Since their goal is Tyranny and enslavement or the death of all. There are not about to tell the truth.
        The Fabian Wolf now hanging in the London School of Economics where the world leaders in politics, banking and industry are trained. Amid much celebration it was installed by UK ex Prime Minester Tony Blair with Bill Clinton in attendence.

        The newest out of the London School of Economics is refried Fascism now called The Third Way it was resurrected by

        A Third Way For The European Union

        Anthony Giddens has been Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) since 1997. He has helped to popularise the idea of the ‘Third Way’….

        THE THIRD WAY: Politics Of The Radical Center

        On September 21, several heads of state attended a Third Way Conference at New York University. In an interview, British Prime Minister Tony Blair inadvertently disclosed the Hegelian philosophy of the social planners. According to the Guardian newspaper:
        “Blair said that the world’s center-left parties had to put themselves at the forefront of managing social change in the global economy. ‘The old left [communists] resisted that change. The new right [conservative capitalists] did not want to manage it. We have to manage that change to produce social solidarity and prosperity.'”
        Appended to this post are four articles on The Third Way. Blair Tells of Third Way and One Reason for the Laws, by Don Fiedor, explain the Third Way society that is envisioned by the social planners:
        “…in a ‘Third Way’ society, private property must be allowed. Rather than government owning all property and the means of production, as in pure socialism, an alternative is used. In a ‘Third Way’ society, property and business is heavily controlled by government regulation, rather than government ownership.
        “However, in a ‘Third Way’ society, the laws to keep us citizens in line come from the communist model of government — which means complete government control of everything from womb to tomb. We are to have a semblance of freedom. But the working class people must never have enough freedom (or accumulative power) to interfere effectively in either commerce or government. The moneyed elite, however, work under the capitalist system, and capitalist rules, so as to continue generating wealth. The elite get the freedom, the workers get strictly controlled.”…

        It doesn’t go down to well with some. Another good one sentence description:

        …The term “the third way” was later used by Bill Clinton and Tony Blair to advocate a system of “democratic capitalism” — a mixture of political democracy and plutocratic capitalism (whose institutions are structured to keep capital ownership concentrated in the hands of a few while providing jobs and welfare to “the masses”)….

LSE is the training center for the political, financial and corporate international elite.

          Also Tony Blair was sent to the Middle East by JP Morgan and the UN no doubt to talk some ‘sense’ in to Qaddafi just before the entire mess exploded.

    • RAH says:

      FDR didn’t pull the USA out the deadly slump of the Great depression. WWII did that.

      FDRs greatest contributions were seeing early on the US was not going to be able to stay out of it and beginning early mobilization and the build up of the US military. His continued correspondence with that “former Naval Person”, (Churchill) was critical during the years before Pearl Harbor. FDR fought and snuck and scraped to do everything he possibly could to go through or get around a recalcitrant congress and neutrality in order to help Great Britain survive and then quickly jumped in to help the UK send critical supplies to Russia after Hitler kicked off Barbarossa in June 1941. The first supplies to the Soviets originating in the US arrived via a British convoy in August 1941.

      The immensity of the task Churchill faced never seemed to faze him mentally but did cause him to break down physically a couple times during the war. Upon becoming PM he gathered up the threads of power, reorganized the government quickly and effectively to a total war footing and delegated magnificently while retaining the key positions of authority for himself in order to maintain control. Thus he found time to get involved in what some would consider minutia, like the selection of the type of helmets that observers would use and ordering the creation of a special medal for the bomb disposal squads. It was he that was the driving force behind the creation of the commandos which he initially called “hunters”.

      He quickly and correctly identified the fact that the fight to maintain lines of communications was vital for the survival of the Kingdom and that if that battle was lost the war would be lost. He made it clear that battle was the one that caused him the most worry over the course of the first years of the war. It was Churchill that was the driving force behind the invention of the LST (Landing Ship Tank) that would become so critical for the coming amphibious operations. It was Churchill that first conceived the idea of turning merchant ships into small aircraft carriers which evolved into the “Escort Carriers” which were vital for the winning of the Battle of the Atlantic and became a critical component of the US Navy fleet for their operations in the Pacific.

    I have to interject something which I just recently heard and believe to not be true, but why stop a good story?

    As Winston Churchill lay in his deathbed he eventually became unresponsive. One of the observers remarked, “I think he is gone” but a nurse at his bedside felt of his feet and said, “No. His feet are still warm. No one dies with warm feet.” At that point, Churchill open his eyes one last time. His final words were, “Joan of Arc did…”

    Which is also why those who know history bristled when Hugh Hewitt asked Dr. Carson in the December debate whether he would be as “ruthless” as Churchill in a war.

      “Ruthless” in a war?

      What the heck do they think war is? A tea party with oolong and scones?

    A classic interview by Professor Antony Sutton, who taught economics at California State University, and was a research fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution.
    In this talk, Prof. Sutton goes into his impeccable research on how a close-knit group of Western financiers and industrialists (centered around Morgan and Rockefeller in the US, and around Milner and the City financiers, in the UK) created and sustained their three supposed enemies right from the very beginning: Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany, and FDR’s Fabian socialism.

    Particularly, he goes into how Wall Street/City of London financiers used their banking institutions and their industrial enterprises to:

    1) Help finance and sustain the Bolshevik Revolution. Build up Soviet industry during Lenin’s Five-Year Plans, both through finance, technology/industrial transfers and technical assistance. Continue to build the Soviets throughout the entire Cold War, through the same kinds of deals. This included the Korea and the Vietnam eras, during which American troops were being killed by… Western-made Soviet equipment.

    2) Build up Nazi Germany, both financially and industrially;

    3) Get FDR into power in America as their man, and even draw up the New Deal policies, especially FDR’s National Recovery Act — designed by Gerard Swopes of General Electric and deeply welcomed by Wall Streeters Morgan, Warburg and Rockefeller.

    Sutton was not a wild speculator. He was a distinguished academic researcher who documented his conclusions impeccably in his several works. Not being able to counter his research, the establishment (including academia) simply attempts to ignore it, and pretend it isn’t there.
    The purpose for these Wall Street policies was very simple: to create, and globalize, what Sutton calls Corporate Socialism. A system under which everything in society is ruled by the state, and the state is, in its stead, controlled by financiers who, hence, get to rule and manage society, to their liking. In other words, to get society to work for the financiers, using a socialist state as an intermediary.
    This is what we now know as the globalization economic model. As a result of all the clashes of the 20th century, most notably WWII and the Cold War (fought between powers that were manipulated and controlled by these banker cliques), the world has been ‘globalized’. Meaning that it has been entirely taken over by these financiers, and is ever closer to being completely ruled by them, through not only the national states and national central banking systems, but mainly through supranational agencies and institutions.

    Go into Professor Sutton’s books, most notably the Hoover Institute’s series on Western technological/industrial transfers to the Soviets and the ‘Wall Street’ trilogy. If you have a difficulty in purchasing the original books, you’ll find most of them are easily available online, on pdf form

    Were it not for the fact that Churchill was a psychopathic war monger and alcoholic, he might be considered an admirable man. Obama is a foggy minded sociopath but a fairly good puppet by all accounts. He does not possess the literary skills that Churchill had, but both received Nobel Prizes though for different things. Churchill was Jewish and we are not sure what Obama is?
