Business Plot of 1933: Plan to Overthrow US Government

In 1934, Gen. Smedley Butler (USMC) revealed a plot to overthrow the US government. Involved in the plot was Prescott Bush (George Sr.'s daddy). Also financing the plot was the Heinz company, of which John Kerry's wife is an heir by way of her deceased first husband.

George Bush, Jr. and John Kerry have a lot more in common than Skull & Bones.

This video is an overview of the plot. There is much more available online to anyone interested.

O boy!

"The generals only aim was to protect American ' democracy'" - democracy???

Ron Paul is My President


The legislatures pass laws via a democratic vote.

Big Business wanted Gold to finance a world war in early 1900s

but Big Government beat them to the punch, case closed.

we still had all the world wars they needed, still going on... what's the difference besides the continued illusion we have more uniforms

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

Yup, whatever means necessary

Yup, whatever means necessary like stomping on the US Constitution, 4th and 5th Amendments, by illegally detaining and holding individuals in internment camps as one example. Roosevelt was an effing disaster to our country. If anything he prolonged the Great Depression which didn't end until we got into WWII.

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

These guys must really suck at making things happen

because we are further away from the gold standard than ever and we're still stuck with the economic burdens of New Deal regulations. If getting rid of regulations and instituting sound money has been the plan of the shadow elites the whole time then I don't think that we have much to worry about. There have been two Bushes in office, I'm sure the creators of this video are confounded by the fact that over regulation and easy money policy were basically the hallmarks of their time at the helm.

Brace yourselves everyone because the evil conspirators are right on the verge of deregulation and enslaving us all to the horrors of the gold standard. Better stay on your toes, they're so close that it could be any day now if we're not vigilant.


Revoke the New Deal? AWESOME. Gold standard? AWESOME. Somehow these are things one associates with.. fascism?

Show me a fascist nation that wanted the gold standard. There has never existed one. How the hell do you expect them to finance their endless absurd bureaucratic tentacles without a central bank? This is precisely what a gold standard prohibits.

The 'New Deal' was the loving embrace of fascism in the U.S.

Its important to realize

That during the Roosevelt era the US could not have won the war if it had to rely on gold. Price controls were set for nearly every industry for full war time mobilization. So this was a different era with a different set of rules. The stakes could not be higher in a war against the Germans and Japanese. If those who wanted to overthrow Roosevelt won, they would have sued for peace with the Axis, and we'd likely be living in a fascist state. The goal of the conspirators was unlimited profits. Roosevelt's agenda was a response to the failed policies of Hoover, Wilson, and Coolidge before him. He had no way to look into a crystal ball into 2013. Once we were attacked, his primary goal was to win the war through whatever means necessary.


Sorry. You can't make war without debasing the currency to tax at a greater rate than people would otherwise accept.

Wage and price controls, spending, cartelization of the economy; these are hallmarks of fascism. Specifically the emphasis on corporate/state participation.. which is why I included the link.

Not to be pushy or obnoxious, but I do urge you to listen to Tom Woods pick apart the New Deal. Because to accept the it as anything else is to rebuke the Liberty without exception. (Linked here again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NH60d1lA9dc)

There is no different era. There is no different set of rules. These are unblinking and eternal.

To say that the conspirators were seeking "unlimited profits" by revoking the New Deal and instituting the gold standard, IF that was the case, then they sound to my ear to be Patriots and hero's like those that repulsed the Brits in the 18th century. Only this time from a domestic tyrant.

IF they wanted it undone and sound money returned, perhaps we should be celebrating and commemorating their efforts. Something tells me this was all invented though.

WWI ushered in fascism and it was a continued policy clear thru the Roosevelt regime. It has permeated all aspects of American life. It is here. From the compulsory schooling and daily pledge of allegiance, to the textbooks in the schools, to the television and media, every regulatory agency; it is here, my friend. We are dealing with the poison fruits from that absurd war to this day.

In fact, the Nazi bastards, ever seeking the friendship of the Limey government, would have decimated the Bolsheviks had an alliance ever been granted. And thus no cold war. But it was not.

And as austrianecon points out below, Versailles was a ruthless assault against a people undoing a thousand years of history in one fell swoop. Hitler had no eye on the West, only on destroying what Hitler considered "Judeo-Bolshevism" in the east and undoing that curse imposed by foreigners literally by starving them to death. Their aim to prevent it from competing economically with France or UK again.

Thanks for your comment. All the best.


It's important to educate

It's important to educate yourself a bit more on what actually happened to bring the US into WWII. First it was merely an extension of WWII. If the US hadn't unnecessarily gotten into WWII, Germany wouldn't ha been given full blame and forced into the the Treaty of Versailles. There was no possible was for them to repay the penalties placed on them, which led to hyperinflate the currency, which helped make people receptive to Hitler's message.

It has also been shown that FDR was plotting to bring the US into WWII from very early on and had prior knowledge of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Read "A Century of War", you can download it free from Mises.org
There is also another book called:"Pearl Harbor: The Seeds and Fruit of Infamy."

The US Congress refused to sign the Versailles Treaty

The US Congress refused to sign the Versailles Treaty and foreknowledge of Pearl Harbor sounds like a bunch of conspiracy junk to me. We did cut off Japan's oil supply, prior to the war, but that was to stop their invasion into China. By this time the US government probably determined that the war, at least in the Pacific, would be inevitable.

Do you know that many historians don't believe the Germans had any alliance with Japan? The reason, simply put, is that there is no evidence to suggest it. But, if you ask me, Germany declaring war on the same day seems like good enough reason to justify an alliance.

That is also a common misconception about the Treaty of Versailles. Technically, the US was not signatory in it, and capitulations were added, later on, primarily by the British and French. The United States didn't enter World War 1 (quite conveniently), until was nearly over.

If you ask me, World War 2 was one justified war, but it changed our domestic government, perhaps, for the worse. At that time, those systems worked, but I don't think even FDR could have imagined a 2 trillion dollar annual budget deficit. The numbers are almost inconceivable, and the debt is not paid down, or if GDP loses confidence, we will have big problems.

The British conceded the reserve currency to the US about 3 decades after the war. It is a blessing and a curse to hold the world currency, and there are theories that it destroys a nation's ability to control its own budget. That is one tactic many of our adversaries are using to ultimately phase out the dollar and create a new world currency pegged to gold, oil, and a number of other commodities. If this actually happened today, it would destroy the US economy overnight. A TV would cost a million dollars from the hyper inflation.


Any war not fought in defense from an invader is an aggressive and unnecessary war.

Discovery channel disinfo

The fascist banks smedley talked about did not want a gold standard and they didn't dislike FDRs new deal (maybe wanted to implement something much worse).

Huh, so the conspiracy was to

Huh, so the conspiracy was to revoke the new deal and put the US back on the gold standard? Why is that bad?

(For once) Bill O'Reilly was right: "They're the same guy!"

Just like the last election

It was like buying an American car in the 1980s. Did you want the same identical car but with a color vinyl top called a Buick? Or did you prefer the same car as a Chevy?

You had a Black Obama. You had a Catholic Obama who said things that some Bible belters liked. You had a Mormon buisnessman Obama. You had a white southern Obama. The only ones that were real were Ron Paul and Gary Johnson. You might add the green party chick but I'm not up on my socialists.

What would the Founders do?

That's the "beauty" of the

That's the "beauty" of the two party political system. All the insiders need to do is get their people to filter to the top of both parties & gain nominee status. At that point the real election is over. Either side, D or R, wins and the insiders still win. That's why Bush & Kerry were "they same guy," just as intended.

Imagine the original system where everyone who wanted to run for President got on the ballot. The primaries, which not nearly as many people participate in, filter out all the outsiders (such as RP) so there is never even a "risk" that they might win. With the original voting system there would be no primaries... everyone would have a chance to get elected. That type of system, the original system, would be a lot more difficult to manipulate since there was so much open competition during the general election.

Thanks to the primaries and the two party system we get to choose between the 'lesser of the two evils' and no chance at all to pick an actual good candidate.

Oh, and even the education system is in on it. The vast majority are taught that we have two choices in the Presidential election, to vote for the D or the R candidate, which we all know is false.


I wonder if Gen. Smedley

I wonder if Gen. Smedley Butler ever had that thought,

"Mark my words, one day a college student in Florida will get tazed over this..."

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.
