Guest Post: Thoughts for Jerome

By William P. Fall

For years now, Jerome has prepared my tax returns.  This is because he’s very good, and I very bad, at that grisly business. 

I first needed him in times when complex property payments and incidental income necessitated his clear wisdom and professional, former IRS agent skills.

Life and taxes for me are simpler these days, now that I’ve retired and migrated to a tax-friendlier state.  Hence, I possibly could manage without Jerome – and spare myself a 200-mile round trip for his services.  But I’d miss him. Mainly because he’s Jewish, and has a fabulous wealth of knowledge not only on Jewish culture – we’re quite able to exchange our contrary religious views with mutual interest and common courtesy, you see – but on so many other topics, as well, that never before interested me much, yet that take on a riveting aura when presented out of the mind and mouth of Jerome the tax man.

Likewise, he’s a very good, very attentive listener to my own discourses, even on subjects over which he may disagree with me (such as politics), and even on subjects over which he decidedly disagrees with me (such as religion).  So, how could I not look forward to tax time and my sessions with Jerome?

Now, U.S. presidents particularly fascinate him – all of them, including those he wouldn’t vote for.  He retains an amazing amount of detailed knowledge about probably most of them.  In fact, he has visited the graves of all but one. 

So, he’s both keenly aware of, and fixedly interested in, the fact that I grew up on a side street just off a main one on which two presidents had resided nearby: John Adams and George H. W. Bush, the latter of whom I met a few years ago.   Not surprisingly, therefore, that senior Bush will invariably come up in our tax-preparation talks – as it did again this year.  And though I can’t remember how exactly his name first arose this time, it led to my narrating how this erstwhile neighbor/erstwhile president is a Freemason, who chose for the slogan of his administration the Masonic term, the “New World Order,” and who, I read fairly recently from a source I respect, was quoted as boldly prophesying something to the effect (my memory fails on the exact words) that a major event would occur at the turn of the new millennium – which, it was suggested, had meant 9/11 – that would prepare the way towards fully establishing that New World Order. 

This, I recognized, was probably a pretty strong dose of elixir even for Jerome to swallow.  But he respectfully said nothing – that is, until the next day, when I received a rather surprising e-mail from him containing this:

“Sorry; just researched [George H.W.’s father] Prescott Bush's supposed involvement with the Nazis.

“’[Prescott] Bush was a founding member and one of seven directors (including W. Averell Harriman) of the Union Banking Corporation (holding a single share out of 4,000 as a director), an investment bank that operated as a clearing house for many assets and enterprises held by German steel magnate Fritz Thyssen. In July 1942, the bank was suspected of holding gold on behalf of Nazi leaders. A subsequent government investigation disproved those allegations but confirmed the Thyssens' control, and in October 1942 the United States seized the bank under the Trading with the Enemy Act and held the assets for the duration of World War II. Journalist Duncan Campbell pointed out documents showing that Prescott Bush was a director and shareholder of a number of companies involved with Thyssen.’”

I wrote to reply that "at the end of the historical note on Prescott Bush (and Averell Harriman) you shared with me, there was also a disclaimer, of sorts, stating: ‘According to journalist Joe Conason, Prescott Bush's involvement with UBC was purely commercial and he was not a Nazi sympathizer.’  To whatever degree part of that may be true, if you'll allow me, I'd like to make some observations for you to consider.”

Those observations now follow.  


You may be aware of the Franklin Roosevelt quote: "In politics, nothing happens by accident.  If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way."  The longer I live, the more convinced I am of how true this is.  

Some personalities at the rarefied heights of government and power – who would include the likes of the elder Bushes, the Rockefellers, Averell Harriman (a ranking Democrat who served under Roosevelt, and was present at the Yalta Agreement at which the U.S. surrendered Eastern Europe to the Stalin-ruled Soviet Union) – such personalities don't usually involve themselves with international intrigue and mischief for "purely commercial" gain alone.  The financial benefits, great though they can be, are only a lesser, incidental advantage of sitting among very elite gatherings of internationalist movers and shakers who, to be sure, do not suffer gladly any competition with, opposition to, or notoriety about, their dominant hold on power.

This shouldn't surprise you in the case of centenarian David Rockefeller, for one example.  So prestigiously powerful was he in his active days, and so far above national partisanship and interests, that at the height of our Cold War with the USSR, he could enter and exit Moscow more easily than could we common-folk at a local library; he was never subject to customs or security checks of any kind.  And Rockefeller’s bank in Moscow did not look like any banking offices we’re familiar with – the simple reason being that its clientele wasn’t everyday Russian citizenry or private business, but the Soviet government itself.

While much could be written about my former fellow townsman, the senior George Bush, nothing about the man would particularly distinguish him as a brilliant intellectual, a business genius, a formidable politico, or a shrewd diplomat.  Nevertheless, he enjoyed prominent success in the oil business (an industry in which government favor is most important) which he first entered into with a firm that was a Brown Brothers Harriman subsidiary.  Then came his star-crossed path through the world of government and politics:  congressman, senator, UN ambassador, Republican National Committee chairman, envoy to Red China, CIA director, vice president under Reagan, and finally U.S. president. (He had been considered for vice president by Gerald Ford, too, only to be passed over in the end for Nelson Rockefeller instead.)  One must wonder, what especially qualified him to hold so many sometimes disparate high-level offices, other than his favored status with the right people in the right circles of power?  What indeed, other than his having been a member of Yale’s elite and secretive Skull and Bones Society, a 33rd degree member of Freemasonry and, in later years, a member of the prestigious Council on Foreign Relations and the even more select Trilateral Commission.

For more telling examples of what I’m hinting at, overall, let me point further back in history.

Almost exactly 60 years after the monstrously bloody French Revolution was orchestrated by Illuminati Freemasons, a daisy chain of smaller, less successful revolutions broke out in various European countries.  This, of course, was the same year, 1848, that Karl Marx produced the Communist Manifesto. (Hence, Marx is often called the Father of Communism, which is not quite accurate.  The title more aptly belongs to Moses Hess, who had converted Friedrich Engels and Marx to the communist philosophy, and later collaborated with them on the Manifesto.)

Though the son of a rabbi, Marx had embraced Christianity for a while in his youth, only later to forsake religion altogether.  According to Richard Wurmbrand, a historian and Lutheran pastor of Jewish decent, he then became part of an organized Satanist movement.  He also had a close working affiliation with the revolutionist Giuseppe Mazzini, of the Freemasonic Carbonari which professed its “final aim to be that of Voltaire and of the French Revolution – the complete annihilation of Catholicism and ultimately of Christianity.”  It is said that through his Mazzini association Marx himself became an Illuminist Freemason.  

According to the Jewish Encyclopedia, Mazzini and Marx were entrusted with the task of preparing the address and the constitution of the (Communist) First International, convened in London.  The question that then begs answer is: entrusted by whom?  Wouldn’t this clearly imply a higher authority?

Early radical manhood for Friedrich Engels, Marx’s lesser fellow contributor to the Manifesto, was spent in England, a haven in those days for European revolutionaries in exile.  Likewise, London was home to an organization alternately identified as the League of the Just and the League of Twelve Just Men, which historian Wurmbrand linked directly to Illuminist Freemasonry.  I recall reading elsewhere many years ago that the League of the Just sent Marx a warning letter, probably through Engels, demanding that he finish the Manifesto by a date early in 1848.  This was because the document was needed to appear later as a philosophical fuse that, it could be purported, had ignited all the “spontaneous revolutionary uprisings of downtrodden masses” already being scheduled to break out that year across Europe.

Those insurrections weren’t spontaneous at all, of course – no more than were the 1965 Watts riots in Los Angeles or the 2015 Ferguson, Missouri riots led by trained agitators from out-of-state who were funded, at least in part, by George Soros.  Largescale destructive riots do not simply start spontaneously and sustain themselves for days and weeks at a time.  They have to be carefully planned and skillfully orchestrated!

Such was the case with the 1917 Communist Revolution in Russia.  According to the New York Journal American for February 3, 1949, it was his grandson, John, who revealed that Jacob Schiff, head of the Kuhn Loeb investment firm, had given $20 million to Leon Trotsky to finance the Russian Revolution.  It’s further documented that V. I. Lenin was secretly transported back into Russia, from exile in Switzerland, in a sealed box car with $6 million in gold.

So, revolutions not only need to be well planned and skillfully led – what’s more important, they also have to be richly endowed!

All of this -- and so many, many more examples that could be cited – help to show very clearly (a) that internationalists do indeed have much greater interests than mere money in their schemes, and (b) that Roosevelt was quite right: Virtually nothing in government happens anymore without it having been planned.

But then, too, Almighty God is still in His heaven.  Nothing can happen unless He permits it.  And He will not permit evil to reign either absolutely or forever. 

That’s partly because His most holy Mother simply won’t allow it.  And God always listens to His Mother!

P.S.  I did get a reply from Jerome.  In his typical terse style it read: "Outstanding summary, Bill!"

I think we're beginning to see things eye to eye.

Of course we won't find that information in any high school history book, but it and much more has been in limited circulation for a long time, the British investigator Nesta Webster was uncovering 'ancient' and modern conspiratorial networks in the 1920s. Of course Professor Anthony Sutton uncovered hard evidence of Wall Street financing of Lenin while working 1968-1972 at Standford University. To use Sutton's phrase, we are still at the first or basic second level of uncovering the truth. We still see the puppets and frequently mistake them for real agents. The puppet masters are still well hidden from view.
However, the 'puppetmeisters' are only men and frequently make mistakes. Their biggest one to date is their man Pope Francis. He must be an embarrassment to them! I suspect Pope Paul was one of their greatest assets,...'nuff said on that topic!

Hilaire Belloc famously observed that, contrary to popular belief, the United States is a plutocratic monarchy, and he wrote that back in the 1920s. He was showing the reality as opposed to the vaunted "democracy" we were supposed to be, but never were.

I have a feeling that the Bushes will be thrown under the bus if the stink comes too close to home. Jeb already went against the current (whether for real or not I wouldn't know) when he supported gun owners' rights.
And so will the Clintons when not necessary anymore.
Let's not forget that these people destroy their own assets (Nemtzov in Russia, judge Nissman in Argentina) if they think it will serve their cause.

The Bush family is a strange bunch, Anon. You could be right.
