The White House Putsch was an
Congressionally-investigated conspiracy of moneyed interests which
tried to overthrow President
Franklin D. Roosevelt during the early years of the Great Depression. The allegations of
the plot came to light when Marine Corps General Smedley
Butler testified to the existence of the
plot before the McCormack-Dickstein
Committee in 1933 .
testimony, Butler claimed that a group of several men had approached
him as part of a plot to overthrow Roosevelt in a fascist military coup using the
recently created American
Liberty League constructed for
the purpose of the coup with the model being the 1930's
French fascist Croix de Feu.

It was called the Special Committee on Un-American Activities
Authorized to Investigate Nazi Propaganda and Certain Other Propaganda
Activities. In 1934, it held public and private
hearings in six cities, questioned hundreds of witnesses and collected
testimony filling 4,300 pages. Its mandate was to get
“information on how foreign subversive propaganda entered the U.S. and
the organizations that were spreading it.”
It did not do well in dealing with
homegrown U.S. fascists, nor did it consider how Americans
helped spread fascism abroad. It did
investigate the fascist plot to seize the White House, but was
criticized by John Spivak, Smedley Butler and
others, for not revealing – let
alone questioning – the powerful men behind the plot.
General Smedley D. Butler testified under oath
before the McCormack-Dickstein Committee
, the first of the
Un-American Committees, that he
had been offered the leadership of a Fascist coup d'etat in America not
once but forty-two times
Of these the only important one was that backed by leaders of the American Liberty League, Wall

Plot to Overthrow FDR (Smedley D. Butler) Video
In 1932, while many
felt it was the way out of the Depression, a powerful group of
financiers and industrialists saw the New Deal as a threat. THE PLOT TO
OVERTHROW FDR reveals this group's plan to either overthrow the
newly-elected president or force their agenda on him. They intended to
use a paramilitary organization of disgruntled WWI veterans inspired by
Marine General Smedley D. Butler to coerce the government. But Butler,
discovering the details of the conspiracy, blew the whistle, triggering
a Congressional investigation. Leading scholars, historians and
government officials reveal the details of one of the most bizarre
schemes in American history.
refused to listen to the few newspaper
correspondents and the still fewer experts, such as Professor Robert
Brady ("The Spirit and Structure of German Fascism"), who before the
Second World War tried to warn the nation that
reaction and Fascism were the real dangers because there was money in
them, and because there was big money back of them.
Bush, the Remingtons, du Pont and J.P. Morgan, fomented
a Plan for the Old American Century, which included assassinating FDR,
creating concentration/slave labor camps, and installing a Nazi
government after the Hitler model - a New World Order! Hitler's words
for this Nazi bliss were simply, the "New Order." Hitler's partners and
financiers in war crimes, the Bush crime family, added
to Hitler's words the neo-Nazi/neoconservative term:

century long propaganda effort designed to expand corporate rights by
undermining democracy and destroying the unions. The 20th century, he
wrote, is marked by three historic developments: the growth of
democracy via the expansion of the franchise, the growth of
corporations, and the growth of propaganda to protect corporations from
democracy. Carey’s unique view of US history goes back to World War I
and ends with the Reagan era.

Description by Dave Emory
I disagree with some
of Emory's conclusions about the GWOT, but the raw facts he provides
are tremendous, see audio below. In particular, he says we're
fighting a REAL war on terror being subverted by a "Fifth-column" of
pro-fascist, pro-terrorist individuals and groups within the govt, and
very close to the GOP. He compares this to FDR sending troops to
fight Nazis while Wall Street and pre-CIA supported Nazis. In
that way, he compares Bush to FDR, as patriotic, pro-democracy
was believably anti-Fascist. Fascists (below) totally despised
FDR as a communist, as they believed democracy = communism. On
the other hand, Bush IS a member of
the fascist network, Emory admits that, and the rise of fascism
in the US and abroad serves the goals of the Bush regime. I see
no logical reason to assume that the Govt's War on Terror
(Islamo-Fascism) is anything but a ruse to roll out more domestic
fascism, as they have desired to do for decades.
