I am coming to the conclusion that this Emanuel Josephson fellow is probably one of the five most important historians that America has ever produced. His career spanned the 1930s through the late 1960s, and boy did he ever tell unpopular truths, the kind the oligarchs and their corporations don’t want people to know. Be advised though: His works, like later important conspiratorial writers such as John Coleman, do have the flaw of being under-footnoted.

The title of this book is somewhat inappropriate in that only one of twenty-six chapters actually deals with the strange death of FDR. It is a most interesting and alarming chapter and raises some significant questions and relates some extremely suspicious factual history surrounding the death of FDR that almost no American alive today knows about.

The majority of this work is divided up along three lines of investigation:
1) The hidden and scurrilous history of the Delano-Roosevelt clan, what Josephson refers to as “America’s Dynastic Clan” since–get this–he says that this family, up to the time of FDR anyway, had provided more than 1/3 of all U.S. presidents. Genealogical charts are provided. Yikes.
2) The hidden and scurrilous history of the rise and reign of FDR. Shocking stuff. The man never worked a day in his life, was given everything he ever had by super-rich banksters, was constantly fleecing and being used to fleece ordinary people of their money. Here is a political picture of the consummate “steal from the poor and give to the rich” banker’s boy.
3) The hidden and scurrilous history of the Rockefeller clan’s and the DuPont clan’s domination of FDR and their intermingling with the Delano-Roosevelt clan. Name the war, and the Rockefellers and/or the DuPonts were at back of it. And whether it was Teddy or FDR or whichever other Delano or Roosevelt, they were obedient servants to the money powers.

Josephson also explains the real diabolical nature and purpose of FDR’s New Deal program which he equates with Communism and Nazism and for very justifiable reasons. Interestingly, Josephson maintains that New Dealism, as well as those two other “isms,” all stem from Bismarkian Germany. I’m not sure about that one, but I admit it is intriguing. What is interesting is that it is known that the current government (public) education system in America came from 1800s Prussian Germany, and the same banksters and oligarchs who were backing FDR’s New Deal program also are known now to have established control over the present American education system by the mid-20th century through vast money grants and purchases derived from their tax-exempt “philanthropic” foundations.

Oh, get ready to be quite surprised over what Josephson relates regarding that “angel of mercy” Eleanor Roosevelt, FDR’s wife. Today we are told she was some kind of compassionate Lady Diana-type; the truth according to Josephson, who was of course a contemporary for almost all of this history, is very, very different, but apparently quite in keeping with her family’s (hidden) history.

Josephson, being an M.D. but an M.D. who didn’t exactly go along with the A.M.A.’s prescribed dogmas, also relates a lot of hidden and shocking history about ugly medical scams that occurred during the 1930s surrounding FDR, polio, and FDR’s “charitable” Georgia Warm Springs therapeutic center.

In the final chapter, and after excoriating throughout the entire book the ruthless oligarchical spoils system which moronic Americans have been conditioned to call “capitalism,” Josephson outlines a model for an economic system that would end depressions and inflation and perpetual warfare and, believe it or not, would probably work, and has in fact already worked once before in American history. But just don’t look for it anytime soon; actually don’t look for it to happen again ever. Not while the Rockefellers and the DuPonts, et al, are in possession of everything, including each and every president, legislator, and judge.

This book is extremely–no, EXQUISITELY–recommendable for anyone seeking to understand real 20th-century American history, as well as contemporary events.

I guess it goes without saying that this book, which was published in 1948, is long out-of-print. Where have we heard that before?
