The Attempted 1933 Jewish Fascist Coup in America

By Larry Romanoff, February 04, 2023





This is a very strange thing. Of all the parts of world history that have been deeply buried, this one event has been so thoroughly sanitised by every portion of the Jewish-owned media, deleted by the book and magazine publishers, by libraries, by even the educational institutions, that there might not have been any person who contained this information in his accessible memory. There surely were some people still alive who would have had second-hand knowledge of the event, but it would have been long in the past and lost in the eternal memory hole. But, as Thomas Campbell wrote in his poem, Lochiel’s Warning, For, dark and despairing, my sight I may seal, but man cannot hide what God would reveal.” And thus, an obscure clerk in the Library of Congress accidentally stumbled upon an original copy of the Congressional Hearing into the event, and inexplicably sent it out for publication. There must have been a huge panic as the relevant persons sought to recover and repossess all distributed copies. But they failed, and some remained in public hands and the affair was once again brought into the consciousness of Americans and the world. Enormous efforts have been made to bury it again, and still very few people anywhere are aware of it, but at least it is now in the public consciousness.


The secret US government and the European bankers have for many decades cherished a plan of installing a fascist dictatorship in  the US and thus obtaining full control of the country and its vast military. Their plan almost succeeded when the Khazar Jews in The City of London, through a group of  American financiers (including George H. W. Bush’s father Prescott Bush) made their abortive attempt at a fascist military coup in 1934. At the time, a man named General Smedley Butler was a heavily-decorated and much-admired war hero in the US, especially revered by all the soldiers of the day. During his long history in the Marine Corps, it is claimed that Smedley Butler was one of only two men who twice received a Medal of Honor for acts of outstanding heroism. This is the man the conspirators chose to head their new fascist government. Butler himself wrote a brief booklet about his career, titled “War is a Racket[1], and is very worth reading.



The cabal of plotters offered Butler $3 million to assemble an army of 500,000 men, mostly WWI veterans who would be virtually guaranteed to follow wherever Butler chose to lead them. Butler was to use this private temporary military to overthrow the Roosevelt government, after which the plotters would install a fascist dictatorship with Butler as the figurative head. The intention was that Roosevelt would be forced to essentially abdicate his position as President and be reduced to a ceremonial role, “the same as Mussolini did with the King of Italy”. Roosevelt would further be forced to appoint Butler to the Cabinet in a newly-​minted position as Secretary for General Affairs,” leaving him to rule the country while Roosevelt remained a figurehead. Butler also testified under oath in Congress that the Vice President and Secretary of State would resign and that the new Secretary of General Affairs would assume the role of Secretary of State, and follow through to the Presidential succession. Private testimony from various individuals contained in separate documents claims that should Roosevelt have refused to go along with the plan, he would have been killed.


The conspirators claimed they had “the newspapers” behind them and would start a story that Roosevelt’s health was failing, and they would appoint Butler as a sort of “Super-Secretary” to be the “Assistant President”, but actually taking his directions from the City of London. Butler claimed the conspirators said to him, “You know, the President is weak. He will come right along with us. He was born in this class. He was raised in this class, and he will come back. He will run true to form. In the end he will come around. And the dumb American people will fall for it in a second.” It is noteworthy that General Motors was heavily in support of this coup, along with the Heinz, Dupont, and Bush families, as well as the banking interests of J. P. Morgan – who was always a Rothschild agent.


The conspirators told Butler they had $300 million in ready cash on hand, and as much as $800 million if necessary to achieve their objective. The money would be used to pay for Butler’s temporary army, and also to the  Remington Arms company who were eager to supply the needed weaponry. Unfortunately for the bankers, Butler was more loyal than greedy and informed Roosevelt of the plan, then provided full testimony under oath to Congress.


A note here is in order about the volumes of money involved. In many cases, it serves no useful purpose to compare today’s value of a currency with that of a prior date, by simply applying the prevailing depreciation rate over time, because other comparisons are much more valid and meaningful. As one point, consider the $3 million offered to Butler to head up this scheme. The statistical tables tell us that a 1934 dollar would be worth perhaps $22 today, but keep in mind that in the early 1930s, the typical salary for an average working man was only little more than $1,000 per year. This means that the $3 million in “cash in advance” offered to Butler as a bribe was actually about 2,500 to 3,000 years of an average man’s salary. You can consider the $300 million and $800 million in a similar light.


Of course the US Congress conducted an official investigation – the McCormack-Dickstein Committee – before which Butler testified as to the details of the entire plan, including the fact of himself fronting a government ruled by the bankers and their corporate allies.[2][3] The Committee eventually confirmed as true everything Butler had told them, with Butler publicly begging the Committee to arrest and prosecute the DuPonts, Morgans and others, but Congress was too afraid and despaired of their ability to bring these powerful men to account. In the end, Congress published a carefully sanitised report that confirmed the event – but only after deleting the names of the plotters, and then suppressed the entire affair. As could be expected, the Jewish-controlled media, especially in the US, ignored the story, except to openly ridicule Butler for attempting a hoax, then resolutely let the matter die. You can access the original Congressional Document here, in two versions. The first[3] is the original photo-version with text than can be searched and copied, while the second is text only but more easily readable.[4] The files are 69 Mb in size. The BBC performed an investigation and produced a rather tepid documentary program titled The White House Coup, which stated “The coup was aimed at toppling President Franklin D. Roosevelt with the help of half-a-million war veterans.”[5] Roosevelt had no power to arrest and prosecute for treason the members of this extremely powerful elite group, and could do no better than leak the news to the media. The BBC documentary stated (probably accurately) that “FDR’s main interest was getting the New Deal passed, and so he struck a deal in which it was agreed that the plotters would walk free if Wall Street would back off of their opposition to the New Deal and let FDR do what he wanted”.


The final reports dealing with the plotters themselves stated “The investigations mysteriously turned to vapor when it comes time to call them to testify”, and Butler himself reviled the US Congress for their cowardice, saying, “Like most committees it has slaughtered the little and allowed the big to escape. The big shots weren’t even called to testify. They were all mentioned in the testimony. Why was all mention of these names suppressed from the testimony?” In this stunning and unbelievable attempt to overthrow the government of the United States, Congress whitewashed this investigation as they did all others. But there is something else here, of enormous interest. One of the documents supporting Butler’s claims stated that “The conspirators either (1) remained abroad and beyond the reach of the Committee, (2) outright denied Butler’s claims before the Committee, or (3) simply claimed ignorance, and the inability to account for large sums of money. Rothschild and other Jewish bankers in the City of London are not mentioned by name in Butler’s writings, but it was clear from his Congressional testimony that the movement originated in Europe and, in the midst of the Great Depression in 1934, who else had that kind of money?
