NY Times:
 Poland’s Top Court Rules Its Constitution Trumps E.U. Law

How ironic that Poland — the nation whose folly in 1939 set into motion the pre-planned world war which itself laid the foundation for the pre-planned European Union — has now redeemed itself by striking a mighty blow against EU tyranny. From the article:

“Poland’s constitutional court set up a head-on collision with the European Union by ruling that the country’s Constitution trumps some laws set by the bloc, a decision that threatens to dissolve the glue that holds the union’s 27 members together.

The ruling, issued in Warsaw by the Constitutional Tribunal after months of delays in a closely watched case, effectively challenges the primacy of European law, a cornerstone of the continent’s push for an “ever closer union” since it began more than 60 years ago.” 

The court decision in Warsaw also raised perilous long-term questions about the future European Union membership of Poland. (emphasis added)

*
This unprecedented decision is Poland’s successful version of the proposed sovereignty-protecting  “Bricker Amendment” to the U.S. constitution — a noble effort which Globalist President Dwight Eisenhower and Senate Minority Leader Lyndon Baines Johnson conspired to thwart in 1954. Even more so than the half-ass “Brexit,” the ruling of the Polish court truly is very “perilous” for the Globalists. Should Poland escape the EU plantation, Hungary will not be far behind. And if the EU falls apart, or simply becomes neutered a la the old League of Nations, then the dirty work of many decades (centuries actually) will all have been for naught. This is very welcome news, which is why the Bolsheviks of Brussels and Sulzberger’s Slimes are whining about it.

The seeds of the EU were planted soon after World War II. The Allied bombardment & destabilization  had caused immense displacement and suffering for the people of post-war Europe. The New York based Council on Foreign Relations then capitalized upon the crisis by implementing their long range plot to bring the nations of Europe under a single socialist system. But they needed a trusted “front man,” a creative “cover story,” and a clever “gimmick” to sell an expensive scheme to a reluctant Congress and skeptical American public.

The phony “war hero”, General George Marshall (CFR) was trotted out to announce The European Recovery Program during a speech at Harvard. The multi-billion dollar foreign aid (bribery) giveaway scheme was soon hyped up as “The Marshall Plan” by the propaganda press. It was sold by tugging upon the heart strings of America. The Plan, it was said, was also needed to save the people of Europe from hunger, poverty and Communist takeover.

The $17 Billion Economic Cooperation Act, aka The European Recovery Act(which ended up consisting of 85% grants or loan forgiveness and only 15% in paid-back loans) passed a divided Congress and was signed into law by President Harry Truman (whose administration was actually infested with inherited Communists) in April of 1948. The “poison pill” of the Marshall Scam was the CIA-run sub-group that it created in order to administer the economic aid package: the 18 member Organization for European Economic Cooperation — a stepping-stone toward regional government and eventually, world government. Winston Churchill himself, in a post-war speech before a gathering of Globalists in London, “let the cat out of the bag.” In speaking of regional groupings, the British Mad Dog said:

In this way alone, can the skeletal structure of world government be clothed with the flesh and blood of a living organism and the acts of state be confirmed by the passionate heartbeats of millions of men.”  (video here)

And that, boys and girls, is why World War II was imposed upon nationalist Germany, Italy and Japan. Should the tyranny project that is the EU ultimately unravel, the whole New World Order system will collapse with it. What will replace the NWO is anyone’s guess. The West is so diseased by now that even a total rout of the Globalist elite would not at all guarantee a return to sanity, morality, social health and liberty. There is so much “rehab” work to be done. Yet we should, nonetheless, rejoice over the system’s slow-motion demise and then “hope and pray” for the best. Go Poland!

Globalist Bernard Baruch’s Puppet Generals Plot World War 2

Picture
The “War Heroes” Eisenhower & Marshall were created by a higher power.

For nearly half-a-century, the financier Bernard Baruch wielded immense political power from “behind the scenes.” It was Baruch who, according to Curtis Dall, introduced the future president Woodrow Wilson to New York city political elite “leading him like one would a poodle on a string.” Baruch later exerted similar career-making dominance over ambitious scoundrels such as Winston Churchill and Dall’s father-in-law, Franklin D. Roosevelt — the two main front protagonists who started World War II, at the behest of Baruch and his fellow finance mobsters.

Among “conspiracy theorist” historians, Baruch’s decades-long control over scum such as Wilson, FDR, Churchill and Harry Truman is fairly well known. What fewer real historians are aware of, however, is Baruch’s critical role in grooming and promoting the ambitious military men who were needed to eagerly carry out the orders of those political buffers. These traitor generals included John Pershing and Fox Conner of World War I fame, as well as George Marshall and Dwight Eisenhower from World War II.

JULY, 1939
GEORGE MARSHALL & BERNARD BARUCH PLOT A NEW WAR

It was not for nothing that the rocket-like upward mobility of George Marshall paralleled that of Dwight Eisenhower  — although Marshall, who was 10 years older, had a head-start. Both men were pulled up the ladder by politically connected World War I Generals Fox Conner and John Pershing, and, more importantly, Bernard Baruch.

As General Pershing’s aide, Lt. Colonel Marshall had become personally acquainted with Baruch in 1918. By 1922, Marshall was hunting ducks down in Louisiana with Baruch and Pershing (here). In later years, after World War II, Marshall once described Baruch as: “one of my dear friends and one of the great helpers”

Marshall and Eisenhower first worked together during the 1920’s, under Pershing, another self-described “dear friend” of Bernard Baruch. Because the Baruch-Pershing-Marshall-Eisenhower complex was so intertwined, it’s worth reviewing the contents of letters which Baruch and Marshall exchanged in July 1939, at a time when:

1. Europe itself was not even at war
2. Hitler was passionately pleading with Britain and France for peaceful dialogue (not war!) regarding the situation of German minorities being abused in Poland.
3. Few people in “isolationist” America would even have imagined that FDR and his crowd were preparing for another world war.

Excerpts from Baruch’s letter to George Marshall
(July 19, 1939)

As you are aware, or can find out upon inquiry, I did as much as anybody to stir up the action which resulted in the expenditures which are giving the Army a part of what they need. I know we have not yet a well balanced program and as soon as I get on my feet, I am going to go after it again. I was in hopes we would have a neutrality legislation that would permit the manufacture of airplanes and the export thereof during war, because I wanted to see a development in this country that our orders alone would not permit.

Also, I wanted the United States to take first place again in quality and quantity…. Always remember that the Army, and you particularly, have a friend in me if I can be of any use.”

(Baruch’s letter also mentioned that General Pershing had visited him in the hospital).

Excerpts from to Marshall’s letter in response to Baruch’s:
(July 30, 1939)

* (The astute reader will note the “kissing-the-boss’s-ass” undertone evident in Marshall’s writing.)

My dear Mr. Baruch:

I have just this moment read your letter of July 19th, and learned for the first time of your misfortune in having to undergo a mastoid operation. My full sympathy goes to you, and I am delighted to judge from your letter that you have fully recovered.

I have been concerned about General Pershing’s health in France, as he had—most confidentially—several attacks. He has endeavored to minimize this, and emphatically denies them. I suppose they are inevitable under the circumstances, but it worries me to have him off in France even though he seems to be particularly happy there the pleasanter period of the year.

I am well aware of your important part in the stirring up of the national conscience to our serious situation last year, and the tremendous effect it had on public opinion.

I do hope I may have an opportunity to talk things over with you personally, and if I am in New York I will try to make an appointment with you in advance, and if you are in Washington I hope you will lunch with me.

I have an invitation to shoot ducks at the mouth of the Mississippi (with Mississippian and good friend Fox Conner?). It should be “to shoot at ducks,” but it recalls a very amusing expedition with you.

With warm regards, and thanks for your letter

Faithfully yours,
George Marshall

The Marshall-Baruch correspondence clearly reveals a plot to build up the U.S. military for a pending war by undoing post-World War I neutrality legislation. It can rightly be described as treasonous and conspiratorial. And indeed, not long after war broke out in Europe, FDR, while promising that the USA would stay out of it, repealed the neutrality acts and started shipping war supplies, first to the British, and later on, to the Soviets.

In regard to the military component of the evil plot to again foment another, even more destructive war in Europe — and then, to again manipulate and maneuver the American people into that war, clique-member Eisenhower was, obviously, also “in on it.” The super-ambitious Eisenhower – a low officer with a checkered record who helped General Pershing to write his post-war memoirs — became a willing subordinate of Baruch’s as far back as 1929 (see “I Don’t Like Ike,” page 61). He (or, most likely, his ghost-writer, Globalist, academic brother, Milton Eisenhower) served King Baruch by writing papers in support of resurrecting a new type of War Industries Board during the 1930s.

xactly as plotted out in the 1939 letters between Baruch and Marshall, FDR changed the existing neutrality act which had forbidden US military exports to warring parties. The ability to ship arms to the UK on a “cash & carry” basis paved the way for Britain’s warmongers to pick a fight with Germany. Later on, a total repeal of the amended act would allow arms to be shipped as part of lease deals (Lend Lease).

The Amazing Peace Mission of Rudolf Hess

Picture

THE SETTING: 

In Spring of 1940, the entire British Invasion Force had been graciously permitted by Hitler to evacuate Europe, from Dunkirk. France then accepted Germany’s peace offer and was out of the war. In April of 1941, Churchill’s schemes to open up new fronts for British advancement into Greece and Yugoslavia were, as had been the case in Scandinavia, Belgium & Netherlands one year earlier, preemptively thwarted by the Germans. Meanwhile, over on the “other side of the pond,” the scheming Franklin Delano Rosenfeld had such a powerful anti-war movement to contend with that direct entry into the war which the British had started had seemed, at the time, very unlikely.

Mad Dog Churchill’s only hope of turning the Globalist-Communist war on Germany into his favor was to involve the monstrous regime of Stalin’s Soviet Union in a new “2nd front” eastern war against Germany. Toward that end, the British and Soviets — though mistrustful of each other — did indeed conspire in secret. Hitler was in a position of strength and wanted to make peace with Britain. Apart from never wanting war in the first place, the German high command also understood that Stalin’s secret scheme  to invade Germany from the East (already known to Hitler) would probably not materialize if he could make peace with Britain or, better yet, even engage the UK into an anti-Soviet alliance.

Picture

Poster from occupied France depicts “John Bull” and Stalin as part of “The Jewish Plot Against Europe.” If Germany could somehow have made peace with Britain, this plot would have been broken.

Rudolf Hess — a longtime friend of Hitler’s — was Germany’s 3rd in the line of command, behind only The Great One himself and Air Marshal Hermann Goering. It was Hess who took the dictation for Hitler’s Mein Kampf while the two were held as political prisoners in 1924.

In May of 1941 — again, with Germany in a position of advantage — Hess (who spoke perfect English) flew a dangerous 1,000-mile solo mission to central Scotland. He parachuted in and left his plane to crash. He carried with him an offer of peace that he wished to present to the Duke of Hamilton, whom he had been told was anti-war.

Hess was promptly arrested by a pitchfork-wielding local farmer who then alerted the authorities. The English-speaking German identified himself as Captain Alfred Horn and demanded to see the the Duke — a man Hess believed was part of the sensible British element that wanted to overthrow Churchill and end the war. Hess was hoping that Hamilton would arrange for him to meet King George VI, believing he could persuade the King to dump The British Mad Dog, make peace with Germany, and join an anti-Soviet defense alliance. The next morning, Hess revealed his true identity to the Duke and told him that he wanted to broker a peace deal between Britain and Germany. He was arrested instead. It has been speculated that Churchill knew that Hess was coming.

Hitler & Hess — as close as it gets.

The Duke of Hamilton was sympathetic to Germany, but he was not in any position to oppose Churchill.

After his arrest, Hess was examined by Dr. Henry Dicks who, naturally, classified the heroic flyer as “crazy.” But Dicks did note how struck he was by Hess and Hitler’s admiration of the British (here), despite Germany having the upper hand in the war at that time. On Churchill’s orders, Hess was then placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the war.  After the war, he would be “tried” at the Nuremberg Show Tribunals where, facing a possible death sentence, he fearlessly declared his undying allegiance to Hitler and to the cause before the Fake Judges of the US, UK & USSR: 

“It was granted me for many years to live and work under the greatest son whom my nation has brought forth in the thousand years of its history. Even if I could, I would not expunge this period from my existence. I regret nothing. If I were standing once more at the beginning I should act once again as I did then, even if I knew that at the end I should be burnt at the stake.”

Tell it, Rudy. Tell it!

In 1946, the brave “Prisoner of Peace” was sentenced to life imprisonment in East Berlin’s Spandau prison. Other “Nazi” prisoners were eventually released in 1966, but strangely, Hess was not. Years later, with the liberalization of the USSR in the 1980’s, there was again talk of finally releasing the old man. But he was said to have committed “suicide” in his cell in 1987, at age 93. How conveeenient!

Hess’s family believed that he was murdered so that the details of his peace mission (most likely approved of by Hitler) would remain buried forever. Because he never got to speak (even his monitored conversations with family visitors could not touch upon politics or history), the “official history” — itself barely ever written about by Fake Historians — remains that Hess was a lone mad man on a mad mission. Move along — nothing to see here. But in reality, the Hess solo flight was one of the most remarkable events of the war — and one which, if its true purpose and Hitler’s approval of same were to ever become widely known, would tear to pieces the official lie of Hitler the warmonger who wanted to strangle England. Ironically, Stalin himself — whose informants were infesting the highest levels of British Intelligence by that time — later confirmed the true motive  behind Hess’s mission and, indirectly, Hitler’s hand in the decision. As quoted in the Daily Mirror:

“The Germans expected a general coalition against the USSR… and that our country would be isolated. The reason why Hess was sent to England was to try to persuade the British politicians to join the coalition against the USSR. However, Hess did not succeed in his task.”

Thanks for that truth gem, “Uncle Joe.”

“Nazi-Looted Art” vs Allied-Destroyed Art”

Picture

Once upon a time, the big bad “Nazis” looted the artworks of Europe — nearly all of it seeming to have belonged to “the usual suspects.” The German program of “Kunstschultz” (art protection) was actually implemented for the purpose of protecting art from the All-Lies merciless and often indiscriminate bombing campaigns.

As men of culture, Hitler and Goering also placed high priority on art protection in World War II.

FRANCE

More than 100 French cities and towns sustained some degree of bombing by the All-Lies between  1940 and  1945. The “official number” of civilians killed, according to French historians, is said to have been about 70,000; injured, about 100,000 — which probably means that those numbers were actually much higher. The number of houses completely destroyed is listed as 432,000; and partly destroyed houses, 890,000.

The cities that saw the most destruction were the following:

  • Saint-Nazaire: 100%
  • Tilly-la-Campagne: 96%
  • Vire: 95%
  • Villers-Bocage: 88%
  • Le Havre: 82%
  • Saint-Lô: 77%
  • Falaise: 76%
  • Lisieux: 75%

The bombings of the Normandy coastal areas, both before and after D-Day, were devastating. Of the 70,000 French dead, an estimated 50,000 were killed during the months before and after D-Day (June, 1944)

BELGIUM

One year prior to D-Day and and then as the great liberators advanced eastward towards Germany in 1944, areas of the tiny nation of Belgium suffered devastating bombing attacks. If there was a German stationed anywhere near a civilian area, the mentality of “kill em’ all, let God sort them out” prevailed. The air raids blasted Belgian cities adjoining the strategic positions manned by Germans. Numerous civilians were killed. The Allied policy was condemned by many leading figures in Belgium, including Cardinal van Roey, who appealed to Allied commanders to: “spare the private possessions of the citizens, as otherwise the civilized world will one day call to account those responsible for the terrible treatment dealt out to an innocent and loyal country.”

On 21 July 1944, around 300 planes dropped over 5,000 bombs on the city center of Kortrihk. Many historical buildings on the central square were destroyed, and an estimated 170 citizens were killed that day alone. (official number). The total number of Belgians killed is estimated (by Allied sources) at 10,000, with 30,000 homes destroyed or damaged.

THE NETHERLANDS

Allied air forces carried out more than 100 raids on Rotterdam and the surrounding areas. During the 128 raids, casualties amounted to 884 killed and 631 wounded.

An attack on the industrial area of the city on March 31, 1943 dropped 99 tons of bombs, causing great damage to the nearby residential areas. The death toll was between 350 and 400 and left between up to 20,000 people homeless. This bombardment became known as the “Forgotten Bombardment.”

On February 22, 1944, American bombers “accidentally” destroyed the center of Nijmegen, killing 800 Dutch and wounding many more. The “jewel of Holland” — the oldest city in the Netherlands — fell into rubble in a few minutes of intense bombing. Three other Dutch cities — Enschede, Arnhem, and Deventer — were also hit very hard  that day.

ITALY

Formerly allied with Germany, Italy had overthrown Mussolini and signed an armistice with the All-Lies in 1943. Before the subsequent terror-induced “unconditional surrender” secretly forced upon Italy with the Germans still occupying the peninsula, the people and artistic works of historic Italy were fair game for extermination and destruction from the sky. It remained so with he Germans there. Major Italian cities and cultural centers were jacked-up pretty badly, including Milan, Turin, Genoa, Naples and, to the dismay of many in the West, the “Eternal City” and “Holy City” of Rome. Even the Vatican was hit a few times!

Following the first Allied bombing of Rome on May 16, 1943, Pope Pius XII (“Hitler’s Pope”) wrote to Franklin D Roosevelt pleading that Rome “be spared as far as possible further pain and devastation, and their many treasured shrines… from irreparable ruin.”   FDR responded with misleading and legalistic language that promised nothing:

“Attacks against Italy are limited, to the extent humanly possible, to military objectives. We have not and will not make warfare on civilians or against nonmilitary objectives.”

It was only when Hitler’s forces retreated, as Rome was declared an “open city,” that the aerial attacks on Rome ceased. During the thousands of sorties that comprised the All-Lies air campaign on Rome, 60,000 tons of bombs were dropped. The death toll among Italian civilians overall is estimated at about 70,000 (sounds too low given the images of destruction) — with 100,000s more injured and countless homes and very old buildings destroyed or damaged.

The Germans did the best they could to gather and protect the artworks located in these nations (as well as others in the East) — but given the level of barbaric bombardment, we can only imagine what treasures, architectural wonders and entire ancient city blocks were destroyed nonetheless by the US & UK Airforces. It’s high time we stop whining about “Nazi-Looted (Saved) Art” and remember the cultural crime of “Allied-Destroyed Art.” Remember this: regardless of what one wants to believe about the German program (“looting” or protection), the “looted” artworks still exist; but the obliterated stuff is gone to posterity forever — having taken a whole lot of unlucky “Goyim” along with it.

What If? Part 1

“What If?” histories are a good read. They are entertaining, and they provoke thought and encourage the imagination. How different the world would be if different judgments, decisions, and circumstances had prevailed at history’s turning points. Certainly English history would have been different if King Harold’s soldiers had obeyed his order not to pursue the defeated fleeing Normans down the hill. This broke the impenetrable Saxon shield wall and exposed King Harold to Norman cavalry. http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Battle_of_Hastings

Would there ever have been a Soviet Union if the Czar had stayed out of World War I?

Would there have been a World War II if British, French, and American politicians had listened to John Maynard Keynes’ warning that the Treaty of Versailles would result in a second world war? Germany had been promised a different outcome–no reparations and no territorial loss–in exchange for an armistice. As Keynes realized, the betrayal of the peace led to another great war.

There are a couple of what ifs that I have been waiting for historians to explore. As no historians have risen to the challenge, I will have a go. Keep in mind that a what if outcome is not necessarily a better outcome. It might be a worse outcome. As what if did not happen and there is no what if history, there is no way of making a judgment.

Suppose Churchill had not succeeded in pressuring Chamberlain to interfere with Hitler’s negotiations with the Polish colonels by issuing a British guarantee to Poland in the event of German aggression. Would World War II have resulted or would it have been a different war?

The British guarantee emboldened the colonels and frustrated Hitler’s attempt to restore
a Germany dismantled by the Versailles Treaty. The result was Hitler’s secret pact with Stalin to divide up Poland, technically known as the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.

Having given the guarantee, Britain was honor-bound to declare war on Germany (fortunately not also on the Soviet Union), which pulled in France because of the British-French alliance against Germany.

Without Britain’s guarantee, the German (September 1, 1939) and Soviet (September 17, 1939) invasions of Poland would have been prevented by the Polish colonels’ acquiescence to Hitler’s demands and would not have resulted in Britain and France starting World War II by declaring war on Germany, resulting in the fall of France, the British driven off the continent, and Roosevelt’s determination to involve the US in a foreign war unrelated in any significant way to Americans’ interests.

Historians write that Hitler’s ambitions were in the East, not the West. Without the British and French declaration of war, the war might have been contained, with the two totalitarian powers fighting it out.

Alternatively, Hitler and Stalin might have continued their cooperation and together seized the oil rich Middle East. The British, French, and Americans would have been a poor match for the German and Soviet militaries. General Patton, the best American commander, thought he could take on the Red Army that had crushed the Wehrmacht, but his hubris did not worry Red Army commanders, who defeated the bulk of the German Army, which was deployed on the Eastern Front, while the Americans, aided by German motorized units running out of fuel, struggled to contain a small part of German forces in the Battle of the Bulge. Today we would be buying our oil from a German/Soviet consortium.

This outcome implies a different history for the Middle East, and so does another what if. What if the 9/11 Commission consisted of experts instead of politicians with their fingers in the wind, and what if the commissioners had too much integrity to write a report dictated by the executive branch? The unlikely and untenable failure of every institution of the American national security state would have been investigated, and the collapse of WTC 7 at free fall speed would have had to have been acknowledged in the report and explained. A totally different story would have emerged, a story unlikely to have locked Americans into permanent war in an expanding number of countries and into a domestic police state.

Americans might still be a free people. And American liberty might still be a beacon to the world.

On the other hand, a finding of government complicity in 9/11 could have threatened powerful interests and resulted in violent conflict and martial law.

What ifs are provocative, and that is what makes them fun. Thinking is America’s national disability. I’m all for anything that provokes Americans to think.

The Murder of Franklin Delano Roosevelt

In April 1945, the end of World War II was finally in sight. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, recently elected to an unprecedented fourth term as president, was at his Warm Springs, Georgia, retreat, sitting for a painting. He reminded the artist that she only had 15 more minutes to work, then complained of a sudden, blinding headache, lost consciousness, and died.

Quite frankly, even someone as suspicious as I would have bought that story, hook, line, and sinker. Roosevelt had been in bad health for years, after a bout with polio left him dependent upon crutches or a wheelchair. The doctors, seeing no real need for an autopsy, decided that it must have been a cerebral hemorrhage.

And so, FDR was buried and Harry S. Truman became president.

People think that conspiracy theories have come into their own only during the Internet age. But within four years of Roosevelt’s demise, a book titled The Strange Death of Franklin D. Roosevelt was published. And while speculation about Roosevelt’s death has remained in the background, over the years it has continued to be one of the most persistent conspiracy theories out there. Even the infamous Colonel X of Oliver Stone’s JFK, L. Fletcher Prouty, has weighed in on the question. So there it is: was Roosevelt murdered or did he die by natural causes?

The fact of the matter is that all presidents accumulate enemies, and a man who succeeded in winning four elections can be assumed to have accumulated far more than most. President Barack Obama is said to average more than 10,000 death threats a year. Even the relatively benign Dwight Eisenhower is reported to have received more than 15,000 such threats annually. And Roosevelt’s views in certain areas were likely to have created even more enemies for him. For instance, he:

  • Opposed using the atomic bomb on Japan
  • Opposed establishing Israel
  • Intended to dismantle the various British colonies scattered across the globe and help them become self-governing nations.

Just those positions alone would have painted a bull’s-eye on him several times over. Yes, FDR had his share of enemies, but could he have been murdered? What do those who buy into this idea hang their hats on?

Mostly, the “evidence” consists of allegations that cannot, today, be proven without exhuming Roosevelt’s body and conducting a full forensic examination. His last breakfast was supposedly laced with cyanide. His body turned black within hours of his death, an alleged result of arsenic poisoning. Although Georgia law demanded an autopsy, as in the case of JFK twenty years later, Roosevelt’s body was whisked out of the state without the legally mandated autopsy by state officials. That’s not an unsubstantiated allegation; that did happen. But that it was done for some nefarious reason is unsubstantiated.

The suspects are fascinating as well. Bill Hanson, in his book Closely Guarded Secrets, lays blame on the Nazis. Colonel Prouty says that Stalin advised presidential son Elliott Roosevelt that the “Churchill gang” had his father murdered, because they were afraid FDR’s postwar plans would destroy British influence around the globe.

He wrote that Stalin told him in late 1946 that his mother, Eleanor Roosevelt, was barred from the Soviet Union because she had refused to allow Soviet diplomats to see FDR’s body after his death in 1945.

Stalin said he wanted his ambassador to have a look at Roosevelt’s corpse ″because they poisoned your father, of course, just as they have tried repeatedly to poison me,″ Elliott Roosevelt wrote.

When Roosevelt asked who ″they″ were, Stalin replied, ″The Churchill Gang 3/8 They poisoned your father, and they continue to try to poison me.″

This was accomplished by a program of poisoning begun at the famous Yalta Conference and perhaps continued at Warm Springs. Emanuel Josephson, author of The Strange Death of Franklin D. Roosevelt, points out that one of Roosevelt’s closest aides, General Edwin Watson, became suddenly ill and died on the return from Yalta, the implication being that he had been poisoned as well. 

It is easy to make these claims, but difficult to back them up at this late date.  That Roosevelt’s body turned black within hours of his death could be indicative of a number of conditions. People with circulatory problems sometimes turn dark very quickly after death. This is hardly conclusive evidence of poisoning. Bill Hanson claims to have spoken to a member of the assassination team, but of course everybody is dead now and substantiating such statements is impossible. 

Was Winston Churchill capable of ordering Roosevelt’s death? Probably. Churchill was a pragmatic politician with a great love for his country. But all existing evidence indicates that the two men shared a warm friendship. Of course, that’s what’s out there for public consumption and the truth could be a different story.  Could be. That’s the pivotal phrase.

Two new theories have been put forward over the last decade. One pair of experts believes that Roosevelt actually died of melanoma, pointing to photographs of the late president with a tell-tale patch of skin discoloration above his eye. Yet another pair of experts postulate that Roosevelt never suffered polio, but rather that his paralysis stemmed from Guillaume-Barre Syndrome, an incurable condition of the nervous system. But the effects of GBS usually clear up in a short while after an attack, which seems at odds with Roosevelt’s long-term paralysis.

Sometimes, I think we want there to be more to a story than that offered up for the public. We want there to be a mystery. And sometimes there truly is. It is irresponsible to label every conspiracy as false and every conspiracy theorist as a nutcase. As always, I fall back on my vastly abbreviated version of Occam’s Razor—the simplest answer is usually the correct one. In this case, here’s a 63-year-old, paralyzed president with a history of high blood pressure, who served twelve of the toughest years in U.S. history. Even now, having read all of these varied theories, I am inclined to point at a cerebral hemorrhage myself. But the fact is, we’ll never know for certain.
