1933 Coup attempt against the White House.

37 posts in this topic

In 1933, there apparently was a plot to overthrow FDR and the US government via military coup. It was also referred to as "The Business Coup," as several famous business families, including Standard Oil, General Motors, Goodyear Tire, US Steel, Chase National Bank, and none other than Prescott Bush---George Bush Jr's grandaddy.

 

The link below gives an overview. It was also the subject of a BBC documentary in 2007.

Here's a link to Prescott Bush's background. Prior to WWII he was a Nazi sympathizer and had ties to the businessman who funded Hitler.

Sorry, nothing moonbat about this.

 

Here are some more sources:

 

You can google "American Liberty League," which was a ultra conservative organization that is said to have been a major funder of the coup attempt.

 

See also the book:

 

The Plot to Seize the White House by Jules Archer, Hawthorne Books, 1973

 

And the article...

 

" An American Coup d'etat?" By Clayton Cramer, History Today, Vol.45(11) Nov. 1995, pp. 42-47

 

You an also search the Congressional record for the transcripts of the McCormick -Dickstein Congressional Commitee, which investigated the attempted coup.

Preston Bush's involvement with MKULTRA and the CIA should be noted as well as his son (H W Bush) involvement with Eli Lilly and the CIA. In fact, George and Ken Lay were also involved with Eli Lilly.

 

I like the part where H W Bush under the Vice Presidency of Ronald Reagan (Republican Bush puppet) introduced the social services (each state) that incorporated the mental health and counseling industry and of course Prozac (Eli Lilly) entered the market place in the same time that the essential Amino acid "Tryptophan" was limited in the food chain and herbal supplements stopped under suspicious circumstances. (Tryptophan is essential for mental stability and health and needs to be ingested daily) It was part of the drug America for the newly planned Bush Coop D'etat.

 

Then there is the story of Hinkley (The mental health assassin) the man who shot President Reagan, and the facts that his family lived next-store to the Bush's and let me not forget to mention that Hinkley's father met with Jeb Bush the day before the shooting of Reagan.

 

It must have been disappointing for H W Bush that he wasn't elevated to the Presidency from the shooting.

 

It's all very interesting.

I haven't nailed down McCain yet to this Bush coop detat but I haven't turned all the leaves over either. Not yet. It must have something to do with his dad being an admiral or a family member. Don't you think? :D

Is that a "chicken coop detat" you're referring to? Or is a "detat" something that happens when you're "cooped" up? Or was it one of those aliens on Star Trek? :rolleyes::D

 

So...how much does Lebanese Blonde Hash cost nowadays...? :rolleyes::D

Yeah, it can't happen here. We don't have conspiracies. We're not Europe, we speak straight and shoot straighter.

One of the finishing touches of the Republican Coop seems to be in the drugging of the military for PTSD (others) while in combat. Cut the drugs after the addiction (China imports 80% of the raw material) and you have an army bouncing off the wall, not listening to orders and endangering themselves. Same with the public sector. Perfect planning for a coop.

 

 

Baltimore Sun's article by Lisa Chedekel and Matthew Kauffman " Policies on mentally troubled troops questioned" is informative to the problems of psychotropic drug usage on the war front.

We would be a lot better off if, in the wake of a Republical White House victory, Colin Powell engineered a coup against the neo-conspirators.

The McCormick-Dickstien Congressional Committee findings did not go anywhere probably because of the "it can't happen here" mentality and that such a revelation would be an embarrassment to the nation.

 

 

From the Wikipedia article:

 

Several scenarios have been proposed in explaining why the affair did not become a cause celebre, among which are:

 

The story was an embarrassment to people of influence, who felt it best to deflect attention from the matter as quickly as possible.

In 1934, as they are today, newspapers were controlled by a relatively small elite — according to then-Interior Secretary Harold L. Ickes, 82% of all dailies had monopolies in their communities. Proponents of the theory thus suggest that the media downplayed Butler's testimony based on the interests of their advertisers and owners.

Some of Roosevelt's advisors were in on the plot, and downplayed it to prevent exposure.

As part of the BBC Radio Document program The Whitehouse coup,[37] John Buchanan suggests that Roosevelt stopped the investigation as part of a political deal: "The investigations mysteriously turned to vapor when it comes time to call them to testify. 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."

Got one better than the FDR attempt:

 

http://educate-yourself.org/cn/proutyJFKmurderandLyndonJohnson.shtml

 

Some believe that the Kennedy assassination was a coup d'etat act from Lyndon B. Johnson with assistance from the FBI. Interesting read. But it does prove that things like that can happen here, albeit under the shroud of "upholding the Constitution"

 

 

 

There are a few conspiracy theories regarding the JFK assassination. One does suggest that George Herbert Walker Bush was involved somehow. Another one, though, suggests the the reason that Nixon so easily gave up and resigned the presidency during the Watergate investigation is because Congress knew he was involved in the Kennedy assassination.

 

 

Still, the 1933 attempted coup has basis in fact and a paper trail that leads to the Congressional record.

 

 

I was startled to find out about this. Guess there is alot we don't know about our government and the powers that be. :(

Interesting. I once had a history teacher say the movie 7 days in may about an attempted military coup was based on history but said he could not elaborate as he was a public school teacher and needed his job. I have little doubt our very own CIA was involved in the KFK assasination, so we have already had a coup in this country.

But every november we get the Official story from Pravda and anyone that doubts that oswald was the lone gunman is group with UFO abductees, Bigfoot eyewitness and the Loch ness crowd.

Seven Days in May, I had forgetton the title, I had read the book. From what I have read so far about the 1933 Washington coup attempt, it does sound similar to this 1962 political thriller.

1933 there was a tangible chance that we would become socialist. The movement was abroad in every civilized country on earth. The US owes it's success to cheap land, labor and commodities. This means we traditionally allowed all sorts of social abominations favoring the rich because the American Dream dictates that hypothetically you could be a rich swine too.

 

Anyhow, the 30s were tricky times for the Plutes.

Seven Days In May is based on a work of fiction of the same title. The novel was written by Fletcher Knebel and C. W. Bailey II. The screenplay was by Rod Serling. The story, according to Knebel, was loosely inspired by the well-known disagreement between JFK and Curtis LeMay during the Cuban Missile Crisis. However, in its main parts, it is a work of fiction.

 

Let's hope your school teacher friend wasn't teaching history or literature. As for who killed JFK, try Lee Harvy Oswald.

http://www.archives.gov/research/jfk/select-committee-report/summary.html#kennedy

Scientific acoustical evidence establishes a high probability that two gunmen fired at President John F. Kennedy. Other scientific evidence does not preclude the possibility of two gunmen firing at the President. Scientific evidence negates some specific conspiracy allegations.

 

The committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that President John F. Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy. The committee is unable to identify the other gunman or the extent of the conspiracy.

 

 

Cui bono?

The acustic evidence was debunked some time ago.

 

Here:

 

Link

 

Quote:

 

Summary. Sounds recorded in Dallas at the time of the assassination of John F. Kennedy were analyzed by two research groups, whose reports formed the basis for the opinion that two gunmen fired at President Kennedy. These reports and the acoustic evidence have been studied by the Committee on Ballistic Acoustics, and further acoustic analyses, including sound spectrograms, have been performed. The committee finds that the acoustic data do not support a conclusion that a second gunman was involved in the assassination.

 

And:

 

For the reasons discussed above and in its formal report (2), the committee on Ballistic Acoustics unanimously concluded that the acoustic impulses attributed to gunshots were recorded about 1 minute after the President had been shot and the motorcade had been instructed to go to the hospital, and that reliable acoustic data do not support a conclusion that there was a second gunman.

The only loose end left in the JFK assassination is the Cuban involvement. It's known LHO went to the Russian embassy in Mexico City and was basically thrown out. It is known LHO met with certain Cubans. Any Cuban involvement would likely be sins of omission since LHO was more interested in asylum. He acted alone BTW.

So the corporate movers and shakers schemed in 1933 to usurp the government.

 

Silly of them.

 

If they had simply waited another 70 years, they'd have seen that this coup has happened..and all without a single shot being fired.
