It’s a DITCH all right. Democracy has been LICKED in France. The frogs were chucked into war AGAINST the Will of the people. Democracy has been licked to a frazzle in England where it never did get a look in ANY—HOW. But even pseudo-democracy breaks down when a people is chucked into war against its will, and the Brits. never VOTED Winston into the premiership. In fact WHEN DID they have an election ?
Remember it is the government in England that decides WHEN to have an election. Think where we would be if Mr. Roosevelt could merely POSTPONE elections till he got ready to have one.
Well, democracy is in her last DITCH, and if she ain’t saved in America. NO ONE is going to save her in her parliamentary form.
As to UNITIN’ with England—taking on a lot of bad debts and new liabilities—one of the speakers on this radio was kind enough, that is, he showed respect enough for American intelligence (yes, even today, he showed respect for American intelligence) by saying only Britons were rootin’ for this FEDERATION.
On close examination the Brits themselves don’t seem to be so numerous in the movement toward merger.
Horeb Elisha [Hore-Belisha], well IS he English ? And Victor Sassoon, ALL for the merger.
Twenty percent capital to be paid by the English.
Twenty percent PAID capital to be paid by the United States of America. The balance of 60% UNPAID to remain in the hands of the promoters, probably as PREFERRED stock, with board of directors ready to grant special bonuses to their friends at ANY and every moment.
Well, is Vic Sassoon, that Jew pseudo-parsee, head of the Shanghai rackets, opium, brothels in probability and so forth, night life of Shanghai ? IS he YOUR idea of David Copperfield and Mr. Pickwick ?
And Mr. Streit ? And of course there are MILLIONS behind it. Any one of 86 Jew millionaires can start a publishing firm and any one of the 4,000 hired troops in the British Embassy can print all the crap he likes.
I dunno where the rugged American INDIVIDUAL is going to git FUNDS to combat ’em.
BUT, on the other hand, you can annex Canada without taking on liabilities. You can annex Newfoundland, and Jamaica and all the rest of it without either paying England OR paying Sir Victor.
Why this sixty percent cut to promoters who will do NOTHING for you ? Yes, I know there is all the Sulgrave Manor association, all the glamour of cousinship; but it WAS cousinship with John Bull, in the old days, not with BULLesha, or Bullstein.
And Bulistein is apparently itchin’ to drop off the B and remain simple ULLstein, by means of the merger.
The MILITARY situation ? Conducing to UNION ? The number of troops that can be supported, and fed, and supplied by ONE line of railway from ArcAngel—from Vladivostock or via Teheran—is considerably less than the TWELVE Million which the Russians set out with.
That Slavic fatalism which induced these troops to die in large numbers has in this war appeared quite ALIEN to the sensibilities of the fighting force put in the field by Mr. Churchill and Mr. Belisha.
I don’t see even Winston inventing an echelon system. I mean Tommy Atkins won’t shoot Tommy Atkins in the back on SYSTEM. He would feel something after doing it once.
Doubtless Belisha’s bright eye, and invigorating etc. will one day suggest that the Aussies could shoot the Sepoys and as the Pathans enjoy shooting anything, and would enjoy shooting Australians especially if invited to do so. And doubtless there could be found an even super-Slavic fatalism some where among the thousand alien races crushed by the Anglo-Jew empire. But it mightn’t take a very active military form. It might just sit down with a hand loom in face of the carnage.
But in ANY case it’s a question of QUANTITY. And WHAT support does the United States GET from Anglo-Judaea ? Just WHOM have the British supported in this so bloody series of swindles ?
They have EVERY reason NOT to waste their forces in enforcing American trade in the Orient. They have every reason to leave America to pin up the diapers of their baby.
Except of course the feeling that the United States MIGHT take a leaf out of THEIR book, and grab this or that, as they have grabbed French possessions, and shot off the remaining French combatants.
In Persia it becomes a question of QUANTITY. Walla walla, etc. Twelve Million Russians did NOT stop Von Rundstedt and Baron Keitel. They have not stopped ONE German army.
Nor have they reduced the German forces to a figure ANYwhere near the number of troops that England could maintain with SIX railways over the Caucasus.
So THAT is not exactly where the strategists expect YOU to help England win any wars. Whatever Growler, Mr. McGrump, sez on the B.B.C. liary [lie-ary].
Now when I was a kid Admiral DEWEY … that sounds like Napoleon at Moscow ?
Yes, that sounds to ME like the story about the “Fifth element MUD, said Napoleon.”
There are millions of Chinamen. Many of them living on very short rations in the INTERIOR and about as much interested in Chiang Kai-Chek as they are in the White Socks and the Phillies. If there still are any Phillies. You could get more enthusiasm out of those Chinks for a Hot Dog Championship on the Northside than you could for Chiang’s FOREIGN party in China.
A LOT of China is NOT pro-Kai-Chek. A lot of China is NOT FOR that gang of foreign investors. Then, of course, you might rescue the de Gaulle interests. Namely you might go die in the GLORIOUS cause of the Bank of the Paris Union, AGAINST General Pétain, the victor of Verdun.
Do you think the French people would thank you ? Listen to the FRENCH radio, that is NOT paid by London; and ASK me.
Yes, the Vichy radio is twisty, it is trying to hold onto France, and double cross the Axis, and hold ONTO FRANCE, and hold or get every inch of French soil, and hang onto every French sou it can lay eye or hold on.
BUT it is NOT working for the famille de Gaulle.
AND it knows that Winston wanted Paris razed to the ground, as was Rotterdam, and as Leningrad either is being or has been.
And Pierre Laval was about all that stopped Winston from attaining that so desired result. Because “we as lenders of money” would be able to intervene and LEND money for reconstruction.
A lovely ambition. But will any born Frenchman thank you for exercising that at this moment, will any FRENCHMAN thank you for exercising that kind of ambition ?
The French peasant wants his field for himself. He has a healthy MISTRUST of all mortgages.
As to the DATA whereon the American government bases its “judgment” (I believe they still call it judgment). Roosevelt is reported in the Herald Tribune of New York on August 17 as being in complete agreement with Churchill and saying Russia could fight all winter.
Mebbe he meant that Siberia could remain outside German protection during that period. He did go so far as saying that “events in Crete” had delayed his meeting with England’s public enemy Number 3. That was some thing but not quite enough to win the Ukraine campaign.
He might have told you that events in Russia had delayed my gettin’ the Japan Times. Copy for June 19th has just come. I suppose it was sittin’ at Kieff to git through. One lap writer at that time allowed like, as if Franklin was gettin’ you folks into the war. But it didn’t look to me as if he thought it was an act of idealism. He didn’t confuse it with savin’ democracy.
In the meantime do LOOK at Belisha’s Anglo-Saxon face, as reproduced in P.M. and other organs of similar nature.
That is what the American branch of Sulgrave Manor Association is asked to Unite with.
