FDR and the Pearl Harbor attack

“When Franklin Roosevelt died during the closing days of World War II, it fell to Truman to end the war and formulate policies for a new world order.”
–The Smithsonian Treasury: The Presidents, 1991Franklin Delano Roosevelt is much loved and revered by Democrats, but not everyone felt that way during his administration. In 1935, Arthur Henning of the Chicago Tribunesaid, “The New Deal will bring the Communist Party within striking distance of overthrow of the American form of government. …” In the same year, Mark Sullivan of the Buffalo Evening News was even more alarmed when he said, “… The New Deal is to America what the early phase of Nazism was to Germany.”

For those of us who have invested our time to research world events and what FDR did domestically, that man is hardly someone to admire or hold in high regard. Not only did FDR stomp on the U.S. Constitution, he wanted the Japanese to attack America while concealing his plans from the American people. One shouldn’t believe everything they read in a book, but in the case of “Day of Deceit: The Truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor” by Robert B. Stinnett, there can be no denying the awful truth that FDR not only knew the Japanese were going to attack, but official documents prove FDRwanted them to strike America first.

Stinnett spent 16 years doing his research and fighting in the courts to obtain a plethora of shocking documents under the Freedom of Information Act – their authenticity cannot be denied. This link to a .pdf file provides a few of the official documents, i.e., “It (official document) directs the Hawaiian U.S. Army commander, Lt. Gen. Walter Short, to follow an official U.S. government desire: ‘The United States desires thatJapan commit the first overt act.'”

Pearl Harbor was no surprise. “Day of infamy,” indeed.

While Stinnett should be commended for his commitment to expose the truth and help clear the names of those military officers wrongly blamed, I was shocked by his comment on page 259: “As heinous as it seems to families and veterans of World War II, of which the author is one, the Pearl Harbor attack was, from the White Houseperspective, something that had to be endured in order to stop a greater evil – the Nazi invaders in Europe who had begun the Holocaust and were poised to invade England.”

There were 2,403 Americans who died at Pearl Harbor. According to Stinnett, who backs up FDR, those 2,403 Americans were acceptable casualties in order to take America into war. Stinnett goes on to say (same page), “Had the facts uncovered in this book been known immediately after the war ended, and had Roosevelt explained his war strategies and tactics to the families who lost their sons at Pearl Harbor, how different American history might be viewed today.”

I feel confident in saying that the families of those 2,403 Americans slaughtered at Pearl Harbor with the full knowledge of a sitting president of the United States wouldnot have been very understanding. I was further shocked by Stinnett’s next comments (same page), “The truth that has been told here does not diminish FDR’s magnificent contributions to the American people. His legacy should not be tarnished by the truth. As with all American presidents, Roosevelt must be viewed in the total context of his administration, not just Pearl Harbor.” Quite frankly, I would be ashamed to say such a thing.

Allowing Japan to “commit the first overt act” – military aggression against America on our own soil – can hardly be called anything but murder. The American people deserved to be told the truth by FDR and what he was planning. Instead, those whose loved ones in uniform at Pearl Harbor that were to be sacrificed were never given any warning. They were simply slaughtered on a beautiful Sunday morning. But, it wasn’t FDR or his Cabinet who would be on the battlefield. It was the sons, husband, fathers and brothers out in America who would spill their blood. Shouldn’t they have been told the truth? Instead, unsuspecting Americans were sold a grotesque lie.

There is no question that Adolf Hitler had to be stopped; he was a monster. While people of the Jewish faith were the primary target of Hitler, more than 3 million Poles and other Gentiles also perished during the Holocaust, including a million Catholics, all verified by meticulous records kept by the Germans.(1) Had Hitler not gotten the help he needed from certain heads of state and influential families behind the scenes, and had the rest of Europe not sat around on their hands while the Third Reich was building power, Hitler could have been stopped.

While I’m certain many will disagree, I don’t believe the White House and our State Department did everything in their power diplomatically to garner the immense forces in Europe to stand against Hitler without war because it wasn’t in the best interests of the international banking cartel who have owned Washington, D.C., since 1913. We should never forget any man, woman or child, regardless of religion or ethnic origin, who died under the Third Reich. We should also never forget what FDR did and then covered up – along with 11 U.S. presidents since his administration.

America’s Top Model contestant speaks the truth about FDR and World War 2!

On tonights America’s Top Model 12 Season Premier, one of the girls started speaking the truth and was labeled a “conspiracy theorist” by Tyra.

One of the contestants, Monique(21), began talking to the other girls about the secret familes that run the globe, mentioning the Rockerfeller and other familes. Later, while walking for the three judges, Tyra says “so I hear your a (air quotes) conspiracy theorist”, and she responds with a true statement regarding FDR and Pearl Harbor. FDR lured the Japanese into attacking Pearl Harbor to get the US into WW2. During her interview, she states “people only get like 5% of the news from corporate media, they don’t know the truth”. This girl managed to get out this information on national television (CW) during a season premier. Stay tuned, this girl may have a few more chances to tell the truth!

 

 

EDIT: 8:42PM 

Guess who was cut from the show? 12 girls were cut from the group and Monique the “conspiracy theorist” was one of them. Figures, I guess the CW had to shut her up before she revealed anything else about this currupt goverment. We feel you Monique and thank you for your efforts! You looked great!

SPECIAL REPORT: World Trade Center 7

On November 20th, 2008, NIST released its final WTC7 collapse report. Read below and click on links for videos.

NIST Releases Final WTC 7 Investigation Report

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) today released its final report on the Sept. 11, 2001, collapse of the 47-story World Trade Center building 7 (WTC 7) in New York City. The final report is strengthened by clarifications and supplemental text suggested by organizations and individuals worldwide in response to the draft WTC 7 report, released for public comment on Aug. 21, but the revisions did not alter the investigation team’s major findings and recommendations, which include identification of fire as the primary cause for the building’s failure.

The extensive three-year scientific and technical building and fire safety investigation found that the fires on multiple floors in WTC 7, which were uncontrolled but otherwise similar to fires experienced in other tall buildings, caused an extraordinary event. Heating of floor beams and girders caused a critical support column to fail, initiating a fire-induced progressive collapse that brought the building down.

In response to comments from the building community, NIST conducted an additional computer analysis. The goal was to see if the loss of WTC 7’s Column 79—the structural component identified as the one whose failure on 9/11 started the progressive collapse—would still have led to a complete loss of the building if fire or damage from the falling debris of the nearby WTC 1 tower were not factors. The investigation team concluded that the column’s failure under any circumstance would have initiated the destructive sequence of events.

Other revisions to the final WTC 7 report included:

  • Expanding the discussion of firestopping, the material placed between floors to prevent floor-to-floor fire spread;
  • Clarifying the description of thermal expansion as it related to WTC 7’s shear studs and floor beams; and
  • Explaining in greater detail the computer modeling approach used to define where and when the fire in WTC 7 started and the extent of window breakage as a result of fire.

With the release of the final WTC 7 report, NIST has completed its federal building and fire safety investigation of the WTC disaster that began in August 2002. A three-year study of the collapses of the WTC towers (WTC 1 and 2) was completed in October 2005. More than 20 changes in the U.S. model building and fire codes have already been adopted based on the findings and recommendations from the investigation.

NIST will now work with various public and private groups toward implementing additional changes to the U.S. model building and fire codes including those based on the 13 recommendations from the WTC 7 report (one new and 12 reiterated from the towers investigation).

The complete text of the final WTC 7 report, a video describing the WTC 7 investigation findings, a of all comments received on the draft WTC 7 report, a chart tracking the progress toward implementing all of the NIST WTC recommendations, and other materials may be accessed at http://wtc.nist.gov.

The website whatreallyhappened.com has a very good page showing various types of building collapses. There are too many videos to post here, please visit the site, view the videos and judge for yourself.

Excerpt below…

Take a close look at the manner in which WTC 7 collapses straight down. For the building to collapse in this fashion, all of the load bearing supports would have had to fail at exactly the same time.The claim that the collapse was the result of a fire requires the fire be equally distributed throughout the entire floor of the building, providing equal heat for an equal amount of time, so that all the load bearings members would fail at the exact same moment.

Ron Paul: We killed a million Iraqis and that pleased bin Laden

The conservatives attending this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference are generally hawkish when it comes to foreign policy, but they applauded Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) on Friday when he told them the US has no choice but to get out of Iraq.

“Part of the reasons why we lost this last election was the foreign policy issue,” Paul insisted. “Generally speaking, the presidential candidate who argues the case for less war-mongering will win the election.”

Paul noted that George Bush ran in 2000 on a pledge to end Bill Clinton’s nation-building, but then he “joined the idea that the American taxpayers — you — have an obligation to take care of everybody and police the world.”

“This is literally what bankrupts the country,” Paul complained. “It costs us a trillion dollars a year to take care of our foreign policy, and that cannot last.” 

“The person most pleased with our foreign policy is Osama bin Laden,” Paul went on. “He said, ‘I’m going to get you to come over here and we’ll fight you on our sand, and we will do what we did to the Soviets.’ … He said he will do the same thing, he will eventually bankrupt this country.”

“So yeah,” Paul acknowledged. “We want to get rid of a bad guy in Iraq — we did. But … another one million Iraqis got killed. Believe me, they weren’t all terrorists. … But nevertheless, it pleased Osama bin Laden.”

Paul concluded by criticizing President Obama for proposing to send another 17,000 troops to Afghanistan. “Don’t we know anything about history?” he asked. “It is bankrupting our country. It will end … because we can’t afford it. … That’s what the financial crisis is telling us. … and the sooner we realize that the better.”
