The Global Bankers’ FDR: A Communist Fellow Traveller (part 1 of 5)

Tehran Conference: Stalin, Roosevelt, Churchill

Toomas Trei

When the peoples of Europe who escaped to the West in advance of the communist onslaught at the close of World War II are asked the question as to ‘what happened to their people and countries at the end of the War’, an overwhelming majority will say that their nations were ‘sold out’ to the communists and Soviet dictator Premier 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 and their nations in Eastern and Central Europe were left to Stalin’s mass murdering and enslaving Soviet communists, while others will state that it was the ‘cost of doing business’. However, ignored is not the question of what happened, but rather the question of whether this FDR action was just part of the continuum of the global bankers’ hidden geo-political agenda. 
This essay looks briefly at the influence these bankers had on FDR’s mentors, Woodrow Wilson’s presidency, and their continued influence on FDR’s policies and actions, including the establishment of post World War II boundaries in Europe.

Historians generally acknowledge that the post World War II fate of the Central and Eastern European peoples and nations who fell into the Soviet Union’s sphere of power was sealed when Roosevelt met with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Soviet dictator Stalin (Iosif Dzugashvili) at the Big Three Conferences at Tehran [November 1943] and Yalta [February 1945]. Some will sympathize with Roosevelt at Yalta because he suffered from polio, and by then was in very poor health; thus he was no match for that aggressive ‘little man of steel’ Stalin. Meanwhile, the other potential protector of Europe, Great Britain’s Prime Minister Winston Churchill, is often portrayed as a tired man; tired of the war, representing an exhausted nation which no longer was a match for the two new superpowers of the world.

This essay sets the hypothesis that a ‘weak’ Roosevelt was not outfoxed in a situational confrontation with Stalin, but rather his seeming deference to the Soviet communists was consistent with the Democratic Party’s own collectivist approach, which accepted and promoted the totalitarian, ‘one world government’ philosophy and solutions of the global bankers. This essay looks at how FDR’s philosophical slant was harmonized with his World War II ally Stalin, and with the Soviet Union’s communists. 
At the 1815 Congress of Vienna, the victors of the Napoleonic Wars, Britain, Austria, Prussia and Russia, along with the loser France, drew up the post–Napoleonic era “Concert of Europe” arrangement, whereby those large powers would guide Europe’s destiny for the next century. The end of the wars also saw the rise to financial dominance of the Rothschild family after they had capitalized by supporting both sides during the Wars. 
In addition, immediately after the Battle of Waterloo and Napoleon’s final defeat, Nathan Rothschild used the fortune of Hesse-Kassel Elector Wilhelm IX, (which he was holding in trust), in an opportunistic manner on the London stock exchange, first creating uncertainty causing stock prices to fall, then acquiring those same stocks at very low prices — in effect buying “a giant parcel for a song”. [1]
By practicing endogamy, “the nuptial agreements which at the height of the family’s success systematically married Rothschild to Rothschild thus keeping the family’s capital united …”[2] the House of Rothschild’s financial strength was consolidated within the family, and allowed Mayer Rothschild’s five sons to secure monopolistic, central banking roles in Europe’s capitals — London, Paris, Frankfurt, Vienna and Rome, but not in Russia.

As Rothschild ‘approved’ biographer Niall Ferguson states; “If there was a single ‘secret’ of Rothschild success it was the system of co-operation between the five houses, which made them when considered as a whole, the largest bank in the world, while at the same time dispersing their financial influence in five major financial centers spread across Europe [3]. This must have caused a difficult paradox for the leaders of these countries, as their national interests might not necessarily have coincided with the aims of their central bankers! 


Prior to the American Civil War of 1861-65, the USA did not have a central bank, because in 1836 President Andrew Jackson had vetoed the renewal of the charter of the 2nd Bank of the USA, which also had Rothschild influence, “under the surface … law records show that they were powers in the old Bank of the United States.” [4]  (In 1835, there had been an attempt made to assassinate President Jackson). 

The House of Rothschild, in an attempt to become more financially dominant in the USA, endevoured to create an opportunity for change as per the Hegelian dialectic; financing the French and English to support the South prior to and during the War [antithesis] against the North, which received support from the Tsar of Russia [thesis], hoping to change the existing order upon which they could then capitalize [synthesis]. [5] (During the Civil War, Thomas House — father of Colonel Edward Mandell House who would later advise Presidents Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt — was an important Rothschild ally running supplies to the South.[6])

During the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln’s government printed ‘greenback’ dollars in trust, (not backed by gold), to finance the North’s war effort. Russian Tsar Alexander II supported Lincoln and the North by sending his imperial fleet to New York and San Francisco. After the War and his re-election, Lincoln was assassinated on April 14, 1865.

Lincoln’s ‘greenbacks’ stayed in circulation, though their value was unstable, until Congress passed the Specie Redemption Act in 1875 confirming that these ‘greenback’ dollars would be accepted at par for gold. This illustrated that the United States government was not yet controlled by a private central bank.[7]

Following the Civil War in 1867, the House of Rothschild established the Kuhn and Loeb bank in New York. This bank, which was headed by Jacob Schiff, (until his death in 1920), played the leading role for Rothschild ambitions in the United States,[8] and it also financed anti-Tsarist activities in Russia. In the 18th century, the Schiff and Rothschild families had shared a double house in Frankfurt.[9] By the late 19th century J.P. Morgan had also become an important House of Rothschild banking agent in America.[10]

Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s family roots in America extend back into the mid 17th century when the wealthy Dutch Delano and Rosenfeldt (Roosevelt) families came to New Amsterdam (Manhattan) looking to increase their opportunities in commerce.  By the 1880s, these families were well established in New York’s financial, political and social scenes and this offered Franklin (born January 30, 1882) 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, later 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 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, p 148.] [11]

When Woodrow Wilson took office in 1913, he offered FDR the position of Assistant United States Secretary to the Navy which was quickly accepted, and his New York Senate seat was resigned. FDR would hold this position through World War I until the end of Wilson’s presidency, advancing objectives of the Democratic Party supporters. FDR’s connections would prove advantageous. When he was rebuked by Congress for his part in the Newport US Navy homosexual entrapment scandal in the spring of 1920, he escaped unscathed. Later that same year he was on the Democratic Party’s ticket as Vice-Presidential candidate with Presidential candidate Ohio Governor James Cox.
