William Finck's program notes follow:

When the Jews were banished by Edward I, usury was banished along with them. I found the following excellent summary in a book of the Parliamentary debates of New Zealand for the year 1901, where there was a debate over the permittance of pawn shops:

The Anglo-Saxon laws against usury were also very severe. Edward the Confessor outlawed usurers and confiscated their property; and [300 years later] Edward the First took such stringent steps to put an end to what was considered a great evil that he hanged 280 Jews and banished another fifteen thousand in one year - in fact, the opposition of the Catholic and also the Reformed Church with regard to this matter was so strong that it was considered un-Christian to take interest for money lent; and the consequence was that a liberal interpretation was put upon the Mosaic law to which I have referred, and the business fell principally into the hands of the Jews. It was held that, while a Jew might not take interest from another Jew, he was at liberty to get all he could from a stranger. Well, the fifteen thousand Jews were banished in one year, and no Jews were allowed to return to England until the time of Cromwell. That shows the view taken in England at that time in regard to the practice. It was left to Henry the Eighth to be the first to legalise usury in England, and he fixed the rate at 10 per cent. But his son, Edward the Sixth, a few years afterwards, repealed it: he did not believe in it; but when Elizabeth, the virgin Queen, came to the throne, she revived the statute of her father. James the First reduced the rate of interest to 8 per cent., Cromwell to 6, and Anne to 5; and since then usury has continued to exist and flourish.

Henry the VIII was raising money for wars in Europe, and he was at first relying on benevolences and the taking of loans without intentions on paying them back to do so. Benevolences were the extorting of “free will offerings” by the king from his subjects.

A HISTORY OF THE MONEY CHANGERS, by Andrew Hitchcock

1558 Queen Elizabeth I succeeds Queen Mary I, her half sister, to the throne in England. During her reign, Queen Elizabeth I decided that in order to wrest control of the money supply she would have to issue her own gold and silver coins. She did this through the public treasury and successfully took control of the money supply from the money changers.

1609 The money changers in the Netherlands establish the first central bank in history, in Amsterdam.

1642 Oliver Cromwell is financed by the money changers for the purposes of fomenting a revolution in England, and allowing them to take control of the money system again. After much bloodshed, Cromwell finally purges the parliament, overthrows King Charles I and puts him to death in 1649.

The money changers immediately consolidate their power and for the next few decades plunge Great Britain into a costly series of wars. They also take over a square mile of property in the center of London which becomes known as the City of London.

1688 The money changers in England following a series of squabbles with the Stuart Kings, Charles II (1660 - 1685) and James II (1685 - 1688), conspire with their far more successful money changing counterparts in the Netherlands, who had already set up a central bank there.

They decide to finance an invasion by William of Orange of Netherlands who they sound out and establish will be more favorable to them. The invasion is successful and William of Orange ascends to the throne in England as King William III in 1689.

Alfred the Great - Anglo-Saxon Fuhrer

Introductory notes:

Before Alfred the Great, there were few Anglo-Saxon Kings who had any degree of care for learning and refined culture. One of them who did was Alfred of Northumbria, who preceded Alfred the Great by nearly 150 Years. But Alfred of Northumbria only had an opportunity for learning when he himself was passed over for the throne by the Witena, or council, and his younger brother had received his father's kingdom. Rather than fight the decision, Alfred retired to Ireland and received an education in the Scriptures and other literature. He became king of Northumbria after 15 years of such an education, when his younger brother died. Soon following Alfred to the throne was Coelwulf, the patron of the English church historian Bede. In Book 3, Chapter 9 of his History of the Anglo-Saxons, Sharon Turner says:

“The effect of Alfred’s reign and habits in this province became visible in Ceolwulf, who soon succeeded to his throne. This prince, who acceded in 731, was the patron to whom Bede addressed his ecclesiastical history of the English nation. In the dedication, the venerable father of the Anglo-Saxon learning says, that it was this king’s delight not only to hear the Scriptures read, but to be well acquainted with the deeds and sayings of his illustrious predecessors. From this feeling he had desired Bede to compose his history. But the flame, which Alfred had kindled in his dominions, was soon afterwards quenched there by the sanguinary civil contests that succeeded. It burnt, however, with a cheering influence in the other provinces of the octarchy. Bede and Alcuin may be considered as two of the valuable minds which it had excited.”

The Night of the Long Knives, Part 1

Here I am going to present a series of articles by General Leon Degrelle which explain the strife within the National Socialist German Workers Party which culminated in the infamous Night of the Long Knives, which was a purge of prominent dissidents and loose cannons within the Party which took place from June 30th to July 2nd, 1934. There is a lot of extant misinformation and propaganda concerning this purge, because there are few take the time to understand what events had led to it, and what events transpired in its aftermath. Only weeks after the purge was completed, Hitler’s leadership of both the Party and of Germany was confirmed in a landslide election victory, on August 19th of 1934.

After the death of Paul von Hindenburg on August 2nd, a referendum was held to merge the offices of Chancellor and President, making Adolf Hitler the undisputed leader of Germany. In order to judge the scope of the victory and the perception of Hitler by the German public at this time, we should take a brief look at the German federal elections which were held just prior to 1934. In 1925, Hindenburg won the office of President with less than 49% of the vote, and in again in 1932 with 53%. That same year, opponent Adolf Hitler received nearly 37% of the vote. Hitler was soon appointed Chancellor, which was the second position in the government, by an aged and ailing von Hindenburg. He had only run for reelection in fear of a National Socialist victory, to keep Hitler out of the office of President.

Once Hitler became Chancellor, he called for new elections which were held in March of 1933, where he had hoped to gain a sound majority. He was again victorious but received only about 44% of the vote, so any legislation he sought would still require the assistance of a coalition of parties in order to succeed. Hitler remained Chancellor and Hindenburg remained as President until his death. Then on August 19th of 1934, barely seven weeks after the purge of several major figures within his own Party, Hitler finally prevailed as the vacant office of President was merged with the office of Chancellor with nearly 89% of the vote. In this election, Hitler had no actual opponent. Either the offices would be merged and Hitler would assume the new office, or the people would reject the merger, and that would have necessitated a new election for President. So while it was not truly a direct election, the people nevertheless gave Adolf Hitler a sound vote of confidence only a short time after the Night of the Long Knives.

The Night of the Long Knives, Part 2

The Barnes Review had for several years run chapters or portions of chapters from the books of Leon Degrelle as articles in its bi-monthly publication. As we have already discussed, Degrelle was a Belgian journalist, politician and founder of the Rexist Party, and then later a National Socialist and Waffen SS volunteer who during the War had worked his way up the ranks from Private to Colonel. Then in the last days of combat, he had apparently attained a rank of General, if indeed the promotion was legitimate. But we shall continue to call him a General. Last week we presented two such articles from Degrelle, The Civil War Within the German National Socialist Party and Röhm Continues to Push. This week we shall present the next two articles in the series, which are The Röhm Crisis Worsens and Last Millimeters of the Fuse.

As we saw last week, Ernst Röhm was an outspoken proponent of two ideas that were completely contrary to Adolf Hitler. First, he was a Marxist. However in the capacity in which he served the party, his economic philosophy was secondary to his work. More importantly, he strongly advocated the autonomy of the SA (the Sturmabteilung or Storm Detachment of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, which was commonly called the Brownshirts) from the party itself, and once the NSDAP came to power he insisted upon the complete replacement of the Wehrmacht, the regular German army, with the SA. As we have seen Degrelle explain, the SA was designed as a paramilitary organization of men who were not formally trained as military officers and soldiers, but who were basically street-fighters, mixed with a number of thugs, and mostly patriotic defenders of the Party’s right to express itself and to hold meetings and rallies. The SA was formed out of necessity, as the violent communist thugs – Germany’s early Antifa – always sought to infiltrate and disrupt the events held by rival parties, and especially those of the political Right.

The Night of the Long Knives, Part 3

Here we continue and conclude our series of articles from The Barnes Review describing the event which is known as The Night of the Long Knives. When we began to present this series, we actually ordered and have just received a copy of the book from which these articles were taken, which is Hitler, Democrat, by former Waffen SS General Leon Degrelle. The six articles we are presenting in this series were actually taken from chapters 38 through 43 of that book, and they were reprinted in Barnes Review issues through September-October, 2002. As we have already discussed, Degrelle was a Belgian journalist, politician and founder of the Rexist Party, and then later a National Socialist and Waffen SS volunteer who during the War had worked his way up the ranks from Private to Colonel. Then he was evidently promoted to General as the war came to its unfortunate end. Last week we presented articles titled The Röhm Crisis Worsens and Last Millimeters of the Fuse, which continued to describe the events leading up to the famous National Socialist purge, and which fully described its necessity, for the alternative was to send Germany down another path to civil war. This week, we shall present the next articles in the series, The Bloody End of Ernst Röhm: The Night of the Long Knives and then 38 Million Germans Make Their Voices Heard: A Landslide Victory for Adolf Hitler, which gives us an impression of how well the German people had thought of Adolf Hitler and the National Socialists only weeks after the purge.

Leon Degrelle describes Ernst Röhm’s political and economic philosophy in a manner that impels us to label him as a Marxist. It is our understanding that Adolf Hitler was absolutely ambivalent towards Marxism, and that his own political and economic philosophy, as they are described in Mein Kampf, were grounded in Christian principles and absolutely antithetical to Marxism. Furthermore, Adolf Hitler’s revolution was political, and ended as soon as the National Socialist German Worker’s Party came to power in 1933. But for Ernst Röhm, the revolution had only begun and needed to continue, ostensibly until he could fulfill his own desires to bring his own form of Bolshevism to Germany. But the trouble between the two men erupted over Röhm’s promotion of the Sturmabteilung, or SA, the party’s paramilitary organization, as a replacement for the German Wehrmacht – the regular army which Röhm sought to dismantle. It is obvious to us, and evidently became obvious to Hitler, that Röhm wanted the SA to replace the Wehrmacht so that he as its commander could supplant the NSDAP leadership and execute his continued revolution.

The Kennedy Assassination

Comments I made during this podcast relating to John F. Kennedy and the Federal Reserve are now posted in the Christogenea Forum.

For a reading list on the assassination, and for other materials, see more here below. What follows are my opening remarks:

One facet of recent American history which I have not touched in any of my studies are the Kennedy assassinations. Perhaps that is because such a great amount of revisionist work – both good and bad – had already been done in that field even before I could get a chance to study it. But admittedly, I have not even taken the time to study which revisionist work offers the soundest treatment of the matter. The Michael Collins Piper book, Final Judgement, is often applauded, and I think it certainly blames the right culprits for the assassination, but I have not even read that. Looking at the field of available work, there seems to be a flood of conflicting theories floating around revisionist circles, and perhaps the subject is best left to someone who can specialize in this one area.

Thinking about tonight’s program, this morning I read an article at the Independent newspaper’s website in Britain, about the 1992 Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act which requires that the balance of unreleased papers related to the assassination and still held by government agencies be published by October 26, 2017. The article admits that most Americans believe Oswald was part of some sort of conspiracy, and even that the 1978 House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations had found that there likely was a second gunman who fired at the president’s motorcade. But it still perpetuates the Oswald myth. Then it speculates about possible culprits, such as the Soviets, the Mafia, the Cubans, and even Lyndon Johnson. But it never mentions the Jews.

Subsequently, it has been reported that Trump acted to hold back a few thousand documents, bending to CIA and FBI appeals to keep the records secret for reasons of national security. The drama may never end, and perhaps it is all a charade.

In a few days it will have been 54 years since the assassination of President Kennedy. So tonight we shall hear from a friend, who may not really be a specialist on this subject, since he has had other work to do, but he has at least spent a great deal of time focusing his energies on studying the assassination of John Kennedy, and we are certain that he will offer us a balanced and thoughtful perspective….

 

Hitler, Christian, Part 1

Hitler, Christian, Part 1

Here I am going to explain why Adolf Hitler was a Christian, and why National Socialism was essentially a Christian political philosophy in spite of the protests heard from church-going mainstream Christians and non-Christians alike, and especially from pagans who somehow insist that Hitler was one of them. Recently having presented conversations here with both Dennis Wise and Rosette Delacroix, and it being in the week of Hitler’s birthday, this was a subject of both discussions. Now this is the third day since the anniversary of Hitler’s death, and while we certainly do not expect him to be resurrected already, it is evident that the entire world will not let his memory rest until the battle which he fought is finally won, as it certainly is not over. That battle can only be won by Yahshua Christ, by God Himself.

I am not going to claim that Hitler or National Socialism were perfect, as no political philosophy is perfect outside of the Kingdom of God which all Christians should anticipate, where only Christ rules over us all. Neither am I attempting to worship Adolf Hitler, as certain of my detractors have sometimes claimed, and even the thought of that is repulsive to me. Rather, I only seek to correct the historical record, and refute the idea that Hitler and National Socialist Germany were somehow pagan, or even atheistic.

Since the Second World War, in a process which actually began many decades or even centuries earlier, most Europeans have become completely alienated from the churches, while the Christian churches in America have been completely co-opted as tools to be used by Jewish interests and a truly anti-Christian fervor for Zionism. During that same period, the basic principles of Christianity have been nullified by the secularization of society and the ever-growing effects of pop-culture and materialism, accompanied by the ever-increasing acceptance of so-called “alternative lifestyles”, the advent of a new and world-wide Sodom and Gomorrah.

“Poison can be overcome only by a counter-poison, and only the supine bourgeois mind could think that the Kingdom of Heaven can be attained by a compromise.”- Adolf Hitler

Hitler, Christian, Part 2

Our intention here is to demonstrate conclusively, that Adolf Hitler was a Christian, and not merely in word but in substance, and that is the sort of Christianity that the world simply does not understand. If National Socialism was founded on the principle of a sacrifice of one's self-interest for the benefit of one's own people, or community, and with programs for the protection and care for the elderly, women, and children, and with the same moral values that are outlined in Christian Scriptures, and with concern for the property rights of all classes beginning with the poorest and humblest rather than only for the wealthy and strong, and with concern for the racial purity of the people as the Christian scriptures certainly forbid any mixing of the races, then National Socialism is Christian, since none of these ideals are openly espoused in the literature of pagans, atheists, or Jews.

Furthermore, if Adolf Hitler consistently referred to the Christian Scriptures in order to defend and illustrate his positions on race and people, even in spite of the fact that the churches themselves ignore those Scriptures, or obscure and pervert them with fairy tales, then Adolf Hitler was indeed a Christian, and he was a better Christian than the officials of those churches. That is what he did; that is what National Socialism later put into its party platform and enacted into its laws; therefore what he did and said in relation to blood and race, using the allegories and illustrations which are found in the Christian scriptures, must have also been sincere. Such allegories and examples, such moral ethics and laws, cannot be found in the literature of pagans or atheists, and they are only perverted by Jews.

This idea that Hitler was not a Christian, but was instead an atheist or pagan, is actually quite insidious. Today the Jews themselves assert their own definition of what Christianity is, or what they claim that it is supposed to be, and by that method the Jews distract Christians, leading them around by the nose with some imagined authority over a faith which they themselves have always rejected, and which Christ had said that they were expected to reject because they never had an authentic stake in it in the first place. Jesus never intended to convert the Jews at His first advent, but He has indeed promised to convert them all to ashes at His second advent, which is the holocaust that they themselves know that they have coming.
