ANTISEMITISM

Over the years Coughlin had managed to keep his antisemitism muted while he was on the air. After his split with Roosevelt and with the rise of National Socialism and Fascism in Europe, however, he attacked Jews explicitly in his broadcasts. Some historians attribute this change to Coughlin taking advantage of rising antisemitism around the world in order to keep himself relevant. Based on his speeches, writings, and associations, however, he appears to have had significant antisemitic sentiment throughout his career.

For years, Coughlin had publicly derided “international bankers,” a phrase that most of his listeners understood to mean Jewish bankers. In the days and weeks after Kristallnacht, Coughlin defended the state-sponsored violence of the Nazi regime, arguing that Kristallnacht was justified as retaliation for Jewish persecution of Christians. He explained to his listeners on November 20, 1938 that the “communistic government of Russia,” “the Lenins and Trotskys…atheistic Jews and Gentiles” had murdered more than 20 million Christians and had stolen “40 billion [dollars]…of Christian property.”

In a series of articles published in Social Justice during 1938, Coughlin lambasted “Jewish” financiers and their control over world politics, culminating with a story recounting his own version of the infamous 20th Century forgery, the so-called Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which purported to be minutes of meetings of Jewish leaders as they plotted to take over the world.

SHIFT TOWARD EXTREME RIGHT

As war approached, Coughlin's politics shifted further toward the extreme right. He promoted fascist dictatorship and authoritarian government as the only cure to the ills of democracy and capitalism. He associated with fascist leaders and known antisemitic thinkers in Great Britain and the United States, including

US auto manufacturer Henry Ford;

Dennis Fahey, professor at Holy Ghost Missionary College of Dublin, Ireland, and supporter of the French fascist movement Action Française, which aimed to establish an anti-modern, authoritarian, and antisemitic regime in France;

Sir Oswald Mosley, the leader of the British Union of Fascists;

Hilaire Belloc, an Anglo-French novelist, poet, and debater whose book The Jews listed Jews as a distinct racial group that could never assimilate in Europe;

and Ezra Pound, a US poet who spouted antisemitic statements and developed an admiration of Italian Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini.

CHRISTIAN FRONT
In a 1938 broadcast, Coughlin helped inspire and publicize the creation of the Christian Front, a militia-like organization that excluded Jews and promised to defend the country from communists and Jews.

The Front organized “Buy Christian” rallies throughout the country. In New York City, police arrested several of the militiamen for harassing Jews on the street, many of them seniors, women, and children. In the context of increasingly violent language, the Christian Front made national news in 1940, when the FBI arrested 18 members in Brooklyn, New York, on suspicion of conspiring to overthrow the government. Its members continued to attract headlines during the early 1940s for violent acts against Jews.

"Quantitative easing is a massive expansion of the open market operations of a central bank.

...

Where do central banks get the credit to purchase these assets? They simply create it out of thin air.

...

The most successful QE effort was undertaken by the U.S. Federal Reserve. It added almost $2 trillion to the money supply. That’s the largest expansion from any economic stimulus program in history. As a result, the debt on the Fed’s balance sheet doubled from $2.106 trillion in November 2008 to $4.486 trillion in October 2014.

...

The Fed requires that banks hold around 10 percent of deposits either in cash in the banks' vaults or at the local Federal Reserve bank.

...

2010, the Fed bought $175 million in MBS(mortgage backed securities) that had been originated by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac or the Federal Home Loan Banks. It also bought $1.25 trillion in MBS that had been guaranteed by the mortgage giants. Initially, the purpose was to help banks by taking these subprime MBS off of their balance sheets. In less than six months, this aggressive purchasing program had more than doubled the central bank's holdings."

In short, using monopoly money they let banks lend/squander 90% of other people's money which led to the housing market crash which allowed them to aquire $1.25 trillion in mortgage assets... the FED probably owns your house and your grandchildren will pay them for it.

As contradictory as this may seem, even as much as I hate that Trump won the election and we're stuck with that asshole for three more years (or fewer if things turn out right), I also am happy Clinton and the bought and paid for DNC lost as punishment for their unethical collusion to undermine the Sanders campaign.

Choosing from the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil...

Although I agree it's way more hilarious that the Trumpster won... help proliferating the understanding that political power in the United Satanic States is up to the highest bidder.

^I hope she can douche herself (excuse mon Francais... sike)

The wealthiest scumbags "write off" their taxes as "investments" or "charitable contributions" to businesses they own (so numbers get fudged.) Thus actual taxpayers pay the bill...

The poorest of the poor don't really gotta pay shit since their monopoly taxes are just a number on a piece of paper(or computard)... but they don't complain since come tax season they get a "refund" financed by real-ish taxpayers...

Small business owners, generally actually have to pay the most taxes... the largest market of actual income/service/creation of revenue/business... Wall Street doesn't actually produce anything, hourly wage workers make it happen, but don't get paid enough to finance wars... all the small business owners I know are the ones who complain the most about the taxation/slavery system we live in and most often get audited by The.I.R.S(what does that spell?)

But bickering over money? Fruitless... unless you got guns, you'll run out of funds...

^lolz...

"The King is dead! Long live the King!"

But yeah, democracy, horrendously stupid charade of government...

"What if" you lived in a nation with a two party system? And every 4 to 8 years one party got "outvoted" by the other... for 150+ years...

How many more centuries before you ask, "Do our votes really count?" Are those two parties "trading" authority back and forth really enemies?

Red + Blue = Purple... the color of Royalty.

But don't panic Blue team, the Red team will lose in 4 to 8 years... and everything will be ok... at which time the Red team will be bummed... but don't panic Red team, the Blue team will lose 4 to 8 years after that... and everything will be ok... at which point the Blue team will be bummed, but don't panic Blue team, the Red team will lose 4 to 8 years after that... and everything will be ok... ;)

I still stand by my "two sides of the same wooden nickel", as regards the parties.
I think we're being played, the they are the puppets, that keep us off balance and fighting each other, so, we don't pay attention, or even gladly accept, their manipulations.
The puppet masters give us "bread and circuses" and keep us agitated, for just this reason.
