On 21 July, 1933, the very same day, and on the same editorial page of the Sydney Morning Herald in which the Consul General’s reply entitles “Germany’s Defence” (see my previous post) was published, the editor shared some concern and criticism of President Roosevelt’s “Brain Trust” and their “New Deal”, quoting from numerous American media sources who were apparently very anxious and skeptical about this plan. My reason for covering this, is that, in part 1 of this series, I found the editor to be ignorant and / or biased in what he had written about Germany, and because I suspect that he may have left some statements out from the reply he had received from the Consul General, Herr Amsis.
Here are several segments of this lengthy editorial along with my own highlights in bold, and my comments and questions in [brackets]. I will then attempt to fill in the blanks and to answer the logical questions that were not addressed in this Op/Ed piece:
ANXIETY IN AMERICA
Sydney Morning Herald, FRIDAY, JULY 21, 1933 “Judging from the American Press of a month ago there is real foundation for the fears expressed in our Washington cable messages this morning of reaction from the first reception of the Roosevelt plan. The “New York Times” alludes to “a top-heavy speculative situation” in commodity and security markets, and “an irregular development” in the control programme.” A public speculative fever is clearly indicated, losses in wheat and Stock Exchange prices are attributed to unloading of scrip by speculators, and the new industrial dictatorship threatens to close the wheat markets “unless remedies are”devised to limit the extent of recession”of prices in any one day’s trading. “The truth is that President Roosevelt’s “brain trust” are not the only brains deeply exercised over the President’s risky plans. One of the first and most serious warnings, issued from experienced business men and bankers who doubted the wisdom of the whole scheme, was that it would lead to heavy speculation, and encourage those who saw a chance to seek the utmost profit out of nation-wide business uncertainty. …. [snip] A Brooklyn paper published a stinging cartoon with the legend-“Let’s hope it “turns out better than most back-seat “driving attempts.” The New York “Herald-Tribune” regarded the prospects as “dismaying, not to say terrifying,” and the “Chicago Tribune” said roundly that, whether the experiment was to be one of Fascism or Communism, “it is to be hoped we shall “have the good sense to revert to the “economic system which created the “wealth of this country.”… [snip] The American commercial public seems to have become anxious under a rapidly generated dislike of the “brain trust,” and especially with the patent somersaulting of the Washington executive under that influence. [Oh, what influence please? Any specifics??] Unable to discover any answer to the question [Oh really now? Great journalism there!] “What is this brain trust aiming at?” New York and Chicago papers sought an answer from analysis of the published works of members of the “trust.” Several of them are Assistant Secretaries of State – Assistant Prime Ministers, as we would say. They completely overshadow the Cabinet. Professor Moley is blamed for the policy of abandoning the gold standard as an advocate of inflation. Another, Professor Tugwell, has declared that he regards capitalism “as in process of evolution into socialised industry.” Leading Democrats in Congress are dismayed at the Influence with the President of “experts who either cannot or will not say what they are really seeking to put through.” The “New York Times” was shocked by the bill abrogating the gold-payment clause in Government and private obligations, especially after Mr. Roosevelt, during his election campaign, had indignantly scouted the idea of any Government’s repudiating this promise. Again the President suddenly deserted currency stabilisation at the World Conference after the leading Press of the country had supported Washington’s pre-conference argument that currencies must be stabilised for the sake of international trade. The nervousness now reported is a symptom of rising apprehension in the United States.” FULL TEXT HERE
So here are saying openly that there is a “new industrial dictatorship” and “shadow government” operating in the USA in 1933, pretending to be “democratic”, but just who were the members of “Roosevelt’s Brain Trust”? The editor mentions just two names, but I don’t just mean what their names were, but rather, what are their backgrounds and influences, stated goals, religions, philosophies, etc. He doesn’t say! And why not? Well, that might have revealed his total hypocrisy in his criticism of Hitler and his intellectual dishonesty by neither asking nor answering an obvious question which the reader has a right to know in order to have an “informed opinion”. But perhaps it was cowardliness, because it may have opened him up to charges of “antisemitism”, or maybe his concern was not at all genuine.
So, I am left to ask, who indeed were the members of this “brain trust”, who were the “backseat drivers”? Who was this group that “overshadows the cabinet”?
James Kieran of New York Times called Roosevelt’s group of advisors as the “Brains Trust”. Over the next few years several of his advisors were considered to be members of the Brains Trust. This included Raymond Moley, Rexford Guy Tugwell, Adolf Berle and Roosevelt’s law-partner, Basil O’Connor, Ernest Cuneo, Hugh Johnson, Bernard Baruch, Frances Perkins , Harry Hopkins , Harold Ickes , Louis Brandeis , Cordell Hull, Henry Morgenthau, Thomas Corcoran, Benjamin Cohen, Robert Wagner and Felix Frankfurter .” SOURCE: http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/USAbrainstrust.htm
But there were others too…
Wikipedia states: “The core of the first Roosevelt brain trust consisted of a group of Columbia law professors (Moley, Tugwell, and Berle). These men played a key role in shaping the policies of the First New Deal (1933). Although they never met together as a group, they each had Roosevelt’s ear. Many newspaper editorials and editorial cartoons ridiculed them as impractical idealists. The core of the second Roosevelt brain trust sprang from men associated with the Harvard law school (Cohen, Corcoran, and Frankfurter). These men played a key role in shaping the policies of the Second New Deal (1935–1936). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brain_Trust
Wikipedia names some of the same people as Kieren, but they leave out several key names such as Bernard Baruch (who had been very involved with WWI and the Versailles Treaty) and Henry Morgenthau Jr (whose father Henry Morgenthau Sr. was also a WWI war monger) , Henry Wallace and even H.G. Wells who were the most influential of this clique of “backroom boys”, comprised of not only so-called “Jews” but Zionists, Fabian Socialists, Communists, and members of the CFR and various secret societies and fraternities like Phi Beta Kappa, the Lucis Trust and the Freemasons. In fact, Roosevelt himself was a high ranking Freemason! More on that later. Leslie Fry, in ‘Waters Flowing Eastward’ stated:
“Adolf A. Berle Jr. if not Jewish was indeed a Zionist, son of the author of ” The World Significance of a Jewish State,” which forecast that Zion would rule the world, who became Assistant Secretary of State. It was he who, when warned by Whittaker Chambers about Alger Hiss‘s treachery in 1939, took no action but allowed Hiss to do his fell work through the war, which made the cold war possible today.” (L. Fry, “Waters Flowing Eastward”) Waters.Flowing.Eastward/Appendix.3_The.Rulers.Of.Russia.htm
“…Adolf A. Berle Jr., had acquired early notoriety by co-authoring with Gardiner C. Means The Modern Corporation and Private Property (1932), a book whose thesis was that large business corporations no longer served the public interest and therefore the government ought to control them. In memoranda to Roosevelt in 1932, Berle “stressed that nineteenth-century competition and individualism were anachronistic.”6 Although he occupied no full-time position in the Roosevelt administration until he became assistant secretary of state in 1938, he influenced New Deal policies for banking, securities, railroads, and many other matters. He exemplified, as the title of Jordan Schwarz’s biography indicates, the quintessential “liberal” in the modern, leftish, bleeding-heart sense. His politics, as described by the left-liberal historian William E. Leuchtenburg, “reflected the hope of the Social Gospel of creating a Kingdom of God on earth.”7 Heaven help us!” http://www.fee.org/the_freeman/detail/a-tale-of-two-brain-trusts
The diary of Adolf A. Berle 5/20/1944 states he attended:
“Joint Annual Meeting of the Nat’l Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, the Nat’l Assoc. of Jewish Center Workers, and the Nat’l Council for Jewish Education, Cleveland , Ohio” findingaid_berle.pdf
Leslie Fry also stated in ‘Waters Flowing Eastward’ that
“The ‘brain trust’ of Franklin D. Roosevelt is composed of several Jews, among them Bernard M. Baruch, Herbert Swope, Mordecai Ezekiel, James Warburg, Frank W. Taussig, Others like Swanson, Secretary of the Navy, Arthur Bullitt, Louis M. Howe, Raymond Moley, Tugwell, George N. Peek, if not Jews, were closely connected with Jews and such radical organizations as the Conference for Progressive Political Action, the Rand School for Communism, the Friends of Soviet Russia, the League for Industrial Democracy.” Waters.Flowing.Eastward/3.1.Fabianism.htm
James Warburg (Jewish International Banker/ CFR member/ Mother: Nina J. Loeb, daughter of Solomon Loeb, founder of the New York banking and investment firm of Kuhn, Loeb & Co. His Father: Paul Warburg was the “father” of the U.S. Federal Reserve System, his uncle was the international banker Jacob H. Schiff.
James Paul Warburg, an agent of the Rothschild Dynasty, major player in the Federal Reserve Act scam, while speaking before the United States Senate, this pompous Internationalist boasted confidently on on February 17, 1950,“We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.” (Fritz Springmeier, The Illuminati Bloodlines)
A “New World Order” is phrase uttered mostly in secret by many high-level Freemasons and various elite types over the past century or more, right up to the present, though no longer secretly. and “global governance” is a concept that has been around since the days of Adam Weishaupt (founder of the “Bavarian Illuminati” in 1776) to signify the coming “world government”:
“It is necessary to establish a universal regime over the whole world”, Weishaupt had said. (Writings of the Illuminati, 1780).
Both terms imply the same thing: the end of truly sovereign nations under global control by an elite few, who will rule over the many. The “Illuminati” symbol was the “All Seeing Eye” or “Eye of Horus”, and was adopted by the Freemasons, as depicted hovering above an uncapped pyramid on the US $1 bill since 1934.
During the first part of the 20th century and right up to the time that the seal was first publicly introduced, a series of victories over the sovereignty of the United States had already been won. Their various agents who were committed to the NWO or “one-world” plans of the Rothschild-Warburg-Rockefeller international banking cartel had already accomplished some important stepping stones to this “New World Order”:
Federal Reserve System (1913); League of Nations (1920); Royal Institute of International Affairs, and Council on Foreign Relations (1920-21); the Stock Market Crash of 1929.
The consolidation of power was thus complete and so the reverse side of the seal, which remained largely unknown to the American people for more than 150 years, could now be shown. In 1934, Secretary of Agriculture, soon-to-be Vice-President (1940-44) and 32nd degree Freemason Henry Wallace submitted a proposal to the president to mint a coin depicting the seal’s obverse and reverse. President Franklin D Roosevelt, also a 32nd degree Freemason liked the idea but he opted to instead place it on the US dollar bill. According to Henry Wallace, in a letter dated February 6, 1951, “the Latin phrase Novus Ordo Seclorum impressed me as meaning the ‘New Deal’ of the Ages.”
“Roosevelt as he looked at the colored reproduction of the Seal was first struck with the representation of the ‘All-Seeing Eye,’ a Masonic representation of Great Architect the Universe. Next he was impressed with the idea that the foundation for the new order of the ages had been laid in 1776 (May 1st, 1776, founding of the Illuminati) but would be completed only under the eye of the Great Architect. Roosevelt like myself was a 32nd degree Mason. He suggested that the Seal be put on the dollar bill rather that a coin.”

Moving along ….
Bernard Mannes Baruch (August 19, 1870 – June 20, 1965) was a Jewish-American financier, stock-market speculator, and power broker. After his success in business, he devoted his time toward advising U.S. Presidents Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt on economic matters and became a philanthropist. When the United States entered World War II, President Roosevelt appointed Baruch a special adviser to the director of the Office of War Mobilization. He supported what was known as a “work or fight” bill. Baruch advocated the creation of a permanent superagency similar to his old Industries Board. His theory enhanced the role of civilian businessmen and industrialists in determining what was needed and who would produce it. Baruch’s ideas were largely adopted, with James Byrnes appointed to carry them out. During the war Baruch remained a trusted adviser and confidant of President Roosevelt, who in 1944 spent a month as a guest at Baruch’s South Carolina estate. http://en.metapedia.org/wiki/Bernard_Baruch
“The House of Rothschild; international bankers who made enormous profits during the nineteenth century, and used their money to take over governments. Bernard Baruch: New York agent of the Rothschilds who at the turn of the century set up the tobacco trust, the copper trust and other trusts for the Rothschilds. He became the grey eminence of the United States atomic bomb program when his lackey, J. Robert Oppenheimner, became director of the Los Alamos bomb development, and when his Washington lackey, James F. Byrnes, advised Truman to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Albert Einstein; lifelong Zionist who initiated the United States’ atomic bomb program with a personal letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939.” ~ Eustace Mullins http://rense.com/general90/whyhir.htm
During World War I, Baruch was Head of the War Industries Board and the defacto Dictator of the United States
Excerpt from Henry Ford Article, THE DEARBORN INDEPENDENT, issue of 4 December 1920: Now, as to Mr. Bernard M. Baruch, who for some as yet undefined reason was made head and front of the United States at war, we have his own word on several occasions that he was the most important man in the war. “I probably had more power than perhaps any other man did in the war; doubtless that is true,” he told Representative Jefferis. And again: “We had the power of priority, which was the greatest power in the war. Exactly; there is no question about that. I assumed that responsibility, sir, and that final determination rested within me.” And when Representative Jefferis said “What?” to that startling statement, Mr. Baruch repeated it: “That final determination, as the President said, rested within me.” Representative Graham said to him: “In other words, I am right about this, Mr. Baruch, that yours was the guiding mind? ” And Mr. Baruch replied: “That is partly correct—I think you are entirely correct” http://www.noontidepress.com/books/ford/ij26.html
The Baruch Plan for World Government
“In 1946, the US government put to Stalin a plan for World Government, created by Bernard Baruch & David Lilienthal, both Jews. This plan was put in the pages of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists Bertrand Russell described its development in his book Has Man a Future? Baruch had earlier been associated with Wilson’s attempt to have the League of Nations created as a World Government, with a World Army and a World Court. The Encyclopaedia Judaica (Jerusalem, 1971) says that Baruch “served on the Supreme Economic Council at the Conference of Versailles, where he was President Wilson’s personal economic adviser”. ” http://mailstar.net/baruch-plan.html
American Babylon – Rise and Fall – Part 4: A One World Vision, New York City, and the CFR (excerpts)
Excerpt: “Initial funding for the CFR came from individual members, chiefly those associated with the Morgan Group, and then later coming predominantly from the Rockefeller Group. In the late 1930s the CFR began to receive funding from the major foundations, first coming from Elihu Root’s Carnegie Corporation, and then from the Rockefeller Foundation, of which fourteen of its twenty-one trustees were CFR members in 1939. The CFR’s current headquarters at the Pratt House in New York City came from the Rockefeller circle, donated to the Council in 1945 by Mrs. Harold I. Pratt, whose fortune came from her husband’s years as an employee of Rockefeller’s Standard Oil. ”
Excerpt: “The CFR Creates the Postwar World… Now that the dominant role of the New York financial oligarchy within the CFR has been explained, it is time to examine the hugely influential role that has been played by the CFR in formulating the economic and foreign policies of the United States government since even before World War II. After Herbert Hoover was defeated by FDR the Establishment was faced with the emerging reality that laissez faire economic policies had been a major factor creating the Great Depression. The emerging trend became that of economic nationalism, and the monopoly held by the corporate/financial Establishment over economic decisions was challenged. The government was asked to take a role in regulating a fair financial climate and FDR’s New Deal was a step in this direction. To meet the threat of “Big Government” the CFR’s secretary-treasurer Edwin F. Gay published an article in the CFR’s journal Foreign Affairs, which was followed by a study group that was chaired by John Foster Dulles and included influential members of FDR’s administration.
The end result was that the extent of FDR’s domestic economic reforms were scaled back, and the passage of the Export-Import Bank and Trade agreements Act in 1934 “marked a return to traditional emphasis on foreign trade expansion as a solution to domestic problems.” FDR was indeed influenced by the banking establishment, but he was influenced to tilt decidedly towards the right, in a direction that favored Wall Street and laissez faire capitalism, rather than towards the left as some conservative critics of FDR continue to imagine. During World War II the CFR’s most important program was its War and Peace Studies Project. IBT explains,
The Second World War and the subsequent cold war were decisive turning points in the history of American foreign policy. They marked a move on the part of the United States toward a full-blown imperialism – a largely successful attempt to organize a single, world-spanning political economy with the United States at the center. Providing the intellectual rationale and leading this thrust toward global power was the Council on Foreign Relations…
Among the groups depending on the Council for “light and guidance” was the United States Department of State. The department had just incorporated the top leadership of the Council’s special War and Peace Studies Project into its own Advisory Committee on Postwar Foreign Policy, and the Council’s research secretaries for the project into its own planning staff for half of each week. The War and Peace Studies were a turning point in American history… The War and Peace Studies Project began in 1939 with funding from the Rockefeller Foundation. It was divided into five study groups (Economic and Financial, Political, Armaments, Territorial, and Peace Aims) that focused on specific aspects of the future postwar world, and plotted how to guide US foreign policy in a way that ensured the dominance of the New York-based financial and corporate powers.
IBT documents the role of the Project in chapter four entitled:
“Shaping a New World Order: The Council’s Blueprint for World Hegemony, 1939-1975.” At least four major postwar global institutions were planned either within the War and Peace Studies Project, or elsewhere within the CFR during the war, and then created afterwards. The IMF and the World Bank were also envisioned early on within the CFR.
In November 28, 1941 a memorandum was dispatched to FDR and the Department of State from the Economic and Financial Group of the War and Peace Studies Project. It mentioned the need for a US/UK board of financial experts to be set up to plan for an “international investment agency which would stimulate world trade and prosperity by facilitating investment in developmental programs the world over.” This memo was then followed up by recommendations for what the board itself should recommend. Jacob Viner, the professor of economics at the University of Chicago who led the Group said in February of 1942, “It might be wise to set up two financial institutions: one an international exchange stabilization board and one an international bank to handle short-term transactions not directly concerned with stabilization.” Viner’s recommendations became a reality in 1944 at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, when both the IMF and the World Bank were created under firm Anglo-American control. The role that these organizations have played in helping the Anglo-American Establishment “gradually absorb the wealth of the world” will be covered below.
The creation of the United Nations was also recommended by the CFR during the war, and the eighteen acres on the east side of Manhattan on which the UN headquarters now stand was donated to the UN by John D. Rockefeller Jr. in 1946.
The first serious planning for the UN began with the Informal Agenda Group established by Secretary of State Cordell Hull. Hull was not a CFR member, but he was acting on CFR proposals and five out of the six original members of the IAG were members of the CFR. After the IAG produced a draft for the proposed UN they then turned to three distinguished lawyers to rule on its constitutionality. They were Myron C. Taylor (CFR director), John W. Davis (former CFR President and current director, and lawyer for J.P. Morgan Co.), and Nathan L. Miller the former governor of New York. When the UN was officially created at the international conference in San Francisco in 1945 the American delegation included seventy-four CFR members. http://www.redmoonrising.com/AmericanBabylon/Part4.htm
Benjamin V. Cohen – A Jewish-Zionist, Co-Author of Lend-Lease Act, a program under which the allegedly neutral USA supplied the UK, the USSR, Republic of China, Free France, and other Allied nations with materiel between 1941 and 1945. It was signed into law on March 11, 1941, a year and a half after the outbreak of World War II in Europe in September 1939. This was nine months before the U.S. entered the war in December 1941.
I alluded briefly earlier to H.G. Wells. who was a huge proponent of a “New World Order”. Researcher Fritz Springmeier also had a lot to say about Wells:
“Written in 1913, Well’s ‘The World Set Free’ predicted the use of atom bombs and the effect of nuclear war long before scientists considered the possibility. It also predicted the breakthrough in 1933, when the details of nuclear chain reaction were discovered. In other books, Wells said a NWO would come about by the elite controlling the air and sea lanes, as well as energy production, which indeed they have done.
Another incredible visionary idea was the concept of air superiority. Whoever gains control of the air will consistently win the ground battle. This has been shown since W.W. I, but it was not realized when H.G. Wells conceived it, and it has taken many years for people to accept the idea.
Not only did H.G. Wells predict modern warfare, the bombing of London, atom bombs, the League of Nations, stealth fighters over Iraq, space flight and countless other details of the future, far in advance of their eventual happening, as well as mapping out in detail how a New World Order could be created, but he participated in causing events to take place.
He was a major player to create the League of Nations. When the Russian Revolution occurred [orchestrated by the International Bankers!] , H.G. Wells (who was known simply as H.G.) went to Russia to trade ideas with Lenin on how to follow up the Revolution to create a New World Order. They disagreed, and parted disliking each other. (The disagreement stemmed over H.G.’s vision that the elite families through business and technology would create the New Order. Lenin wanted to socialize things directly through strong government.)
Much later in 1934, H.G. visited personally with FDR in the U.S. and Stalin in Moscow. (By the way, all three were Freemasons.) After visiting with FDR, H.G. declared that the “United States…[was] the most effective transmitting instrument possible for the coming of the new world order.” He felt that FDR was incorporating H.G.’s Open Conspiracy ideas for bringing in the NWO that H.G. had been advocating, for instance, FDR’s brain trust, technocratic string pullers like Felix Frankfurter and Raymond Moley, who made policy for FDR. After his meeting with Stalin, he described Stalin, “I have never met a man more candid, fair and honest…and to nothing occult and sinister…everyone trusts him.”
Over the years, he advocated the U.K. help the U.S.S.R. Readers may realize from this that the U.S., the U.S.S.R. and the U.K. have all been guided toward the same goal, but have been taking different paths. In general, H.G. was a guru to his generation, and after his death a society in his name continued promoting his views. While he networked with countless persons around the world directly promoting his views (which obviously lined up with “The Plan”), his books quietly served a more subtle but important role. ”
And now, finally to Roosevelt himself, Curtis Dall, FDR’s son-in-law, stated in his book, My Exploited Father-in-Law:
“For a long time I felt that FDR had developed many thoughts and ideas that were his own to benefit this country, the United States. But, he didn’t. Most of his thoughts, his political ammunition, as it were, were carefully manufactured for him in advanced by the Council on Foreign Relations – One World Money group.
Brilliantly, with great gusto, like a fine piece of artillery, he exploded that prepared “ammunition” in the middle of an unsuspecting target, the American people, and thus paid off and returned his internationalist political support.
“The UN is but a long-range, international banking apparatus clearly set up for financial and economic profit by a small group of powerful One-World revolutionaries, hungry for profit and power. “The depression was the calculated ‘shearing’ of the public by the World Money powers, triggered by the planned sudden shortage of supply of call money in the New York money market….
The One World Government leaders and their ever close bankers have now acquired full control of the money and credit machinery of the U.S. via the creation of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt said:
“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.” ~ A letter written by FDR to Colonel House, November 21st, 1933
“In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happened, you can bet it was planned that way.” ~ U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt
This was a long read and I thank you if you made it this far, but it is by no means an exhaustive examination of the “Brain Trust”. It is really merely and introduction! But it should now be clear, who and what type of people these were in Roosevelt’s “Brain Trust”, as well as, what sort of an agenda they had, and that it was by not limited to the United States either, but global. THEY wanted to control the world! THEY were the threat to freedom and to sovereign nations!
While there certainly was no Internet back then the 1930s, but honest reporters and investigative journalists should have been “all over” many of these facts, reporting on them, and “informing” the public about what was an “open conspiracy” and pretty obvious one! But instead, the propaganda, fear mongering about Germany and Adolf Hitler continued to be spewed while Americans were left in the dark about what was going on around them, about who was running the show, and what they had in store for America and the world. That should also tell us that control over the media in America and the western world was already quite well established.
Hitler, by the way, had NO plans to “take over the world”! The facts pertaining to Freemasonry (and other secret societies), International Banking, and the collusion between International High Finance and Marxist-Bolshevik-Communism were known to many in the early days of the NSDAP, going back to it’s inception, and would later became publicly known in National Socialist Germany.
There was no doubt in Hitler’s mind as to who was waging war against Germany, as we shall see in Part 3 of this series.
