I am well familiar with the Mjr. General.

I have a problem with the first video. I may be misunderstanding this but it seems as it they are praising Roosevelt.

There was your fascist plot and it succeeded!

He (in the footsteps of Wilson) carried us further than ever into the grips of Socialism. Like Obama, had the Fed been abolished and the Govt. stayed out of the business of small business, the depression would not have been near as bad. Obama is following the same script...just faster and with a Hungarian boss.

Without the Fed, there wouldn't have been a depression!

Smedley was right in his denouncing the BS of the system. The video was just a bad choice.

Thanks for bringing the good general to everyones attention that may not have known of him.

I read up on the good general yesterday, following a link from

It was quite moving to read his damning verdict on those who've encouraged, and profited from war, making themselves rich whilst young men died by the millions.

That people can still fall for the whole scam nowadays is both incredible and very depressing.

Thanks to the OP for this thread. I was going to start a whole new thread, but after using the search function decided to just add a short comment and a thanks to this thread instead.

I'm glad this thread got bumped, because I had not heard of this man, and I am going to go buy the book now! I am sure we have some men like this alive today, and they are just waiting to set things straight. OK, maybe not sure, but I sure hope so!!

War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses. -S.D.Butler
