FDR & Co-conspirators Enabled Pearl Harbor Attack
Multiple sources reveal irrefutable evidence that Franklyn D. Roosevelt had foreknowledge of the attack on Pearl Harbor. FDR along with his co-conspirators went as far as to setup the troops stationed at Pearl Harbor for slaughter so as to incite the American public into the war.
"This country is … ready to pull the trigger if the Japs do
anything. I mean we won’t stand any nonsense, public opinion won’t… if
they do some fool thing.”FDR goes on to summaries the latest
news from Japan (FDR can be heard rapping his knuckles on his desk to
emphasize the point). “There will be no war with the United
States… on one condition, and one condition only…. The United States
demilitarize all of its naval and air and army bases in Wake, Midway,
and Pearl Harbor. - God! That’s the first time that any damn Jap has
told us to get out of Hawaii!”
"The only thing that worries me is that the Germans and the Japs have gone along, and the Italians, for—oh, gosh—five, six years without their foot slipping—without their misjudging foreign opinion…. And the time may be coming when the Germans and the Japs will do some fool thing that would put us in. That’s the only real danger of our getting in—is that their foot will slip.”

The FDR TAPES - August 23 and November 8, 1940
FDR had a recorder installed in the white house under his office. The recorder was one of, not the first made by RCA, and consisted essentially of a movie camera used only for sound recording. The microphone was apparently mounted in the lamp on FDR's desk and was either turned on by FDR or his stenographer.
According to Jack Romagna, an expert White House stenographer since 1941 the RCA recorder was built and installed “as an experiment.” The recordings were “confidential,” and “it was not intended that their existence be known…”
Fourteen of the twenty-one press conferences FDR held between August 23 and November 8, 1940 were recorded including a number of other conversations. Two years after FDR's death the tapes were handed to the National Archives where they sat for may years until modern technology was able to clear noise from the tapes. In 1978 Professor R.J. C. Butow analyzed the tapes. An excellent documentary covering the tapes is available at http://www.americanheritage.com/articles/magazine/ah/1982/2/1982_2_8.shtml
FDR disliked the recorder and only had it installed after he was misquoted in a meeting with the Senate Military Affairs Committee where he was challenged in a press conference on February 3, 1939 and asked if he had said “the Rhine was our frontier in the battle of the democracies versus fascism?” - I.e. the unpopular question at the time was whether FDR was dragging the U.S. into the war with Hitler?
[Additional Clive's Commentary: From the FDR tapes it appears that FDR's intent in dragging the U.S. into WWII was based on an intent to defend his country. What is particularly interesting in the FDR tapes is the cynicism FDR has towards his opponent Wilky's relationship with J.P. Morgan. Morgan, Rockefeller or Rothschild interests can affirmatively be show to have supported both Hitler and Stalin.]
FDR did not use the recorder in the most historic occasion of the Cabinet meeting after Pearl Harbor.
The fact that FDR preferred secrecy is clear from his 1943 reaction to the State Departments intent on publishing notes from the 1919 meetings in Paris between Wilson, Lloyd George, Clemenceau, and Orlando. On September 7 FDR regarding the 1919 meeting he told his Secretary of State, Cordell Hull: “I have a distinct hesitation… because notes of these conversations ought not to have been taken down.” Nine days later FDR sent Hull a memorandum: “In those meetings of the Big Four in Paris no notes should have been kept. Four people cannot be conversationally frank with each other if somebody is taking down notes for future publication. I feel very strongly about this….”
Oval Office Friday morning, October 4, 1940.
Present FDR, Democratic leaders of the House, Speaker Sam Rayburn of
Texas and Floor Leader John W. McCormack of Massachusetts.
Background: FDR discusses his opponent Willkie, J.P. Morgan and Hitler. The conversation starts with FDR incorrectly assuming a Times Headline was triggered by a statement Lehman said when the statement comes directly from Rome.
FDR: “This morning, front page of the Times, Herbert L. Matthews, Rome, October 3 [the crackle of the newspaper is clearly audible as the President begins to read from it]. Wireless to The New York Times: ‘Moreover’—this is about this [Brenner Pass] meeting of Hitler and Mussolini. ‘Moreover’—and I—this ought to be used…. ‘Moreover, the Axis is out to defeat President Roosevelt, not as a measure of interference in the internal policies of the United States but because of the President’s foreign policy and because of everything for which he stands in the eyes of the Italians and Germans. The coming United States election is realized to be of vast importance to the Axis. Therefore, the normal strategy for the Axis is to do something before November 5 that would somehow have a great effect on the electoral campaign.’ Now, if that isn’t substantiation of what Lehman said!”
Speaker Rayburn: “The fellow is writing from Rome."
Speaker Rayburn: "He’s writing from Rome."
FDR: ‘Writing from Rome."
Representative McCormack: “They didn’t say anything about Landon’s statement, where he deliberately accused you…. I was surprised at him because I had a very high regard for him. I didn’t think Landon would stoop so low as to, even for political reasons, to … make the statement that—the deliberate Statement—that you were going to drag the United States into war. You saw that statement, didn’t you, Mr. President?”
Alfred M. Landon, FDR’s Republican opponent in 1936,had spoken in Hastings, Nebraska, on October 1. The New fork Times reported Landon said that no one could be sure whether a re-elected Roosevelt would permit Congress to play its proper role or whether he would “so conduct our national affairs that declaring war” would be “a mere formality.” Landon described FDR as “a spectacular, mercurial glamour-boy” who “more than any other Chief Executive in our time,” had “successfully concealed his plans and intentions from the American people.” “to dominate world politics” Landon had told his audience, “just as he has dominated the Democratic party, and now seeks to dominate the record of all other Presidents by serving a life term. If I were Hitler, I would rather wage war against Mr. Roosevelt than against Mr. Willkie, because Roosevelt’s leadership, while more spectacular, is flighty.”
FDR: “Of course, the trouble with Willkie, as you know, his whole campaign—the reason he’s losing… is that he will say anything to please the individual or the audience that he happens to talk to. It makes no difference what he’s promised. J.P.M. will come in and say, ‘Now, Mr. Willkie, please, will you, if elected, do thus and so? [FDR speaking for J.P. Morgan].'. 'Quite so! [FDR speaks for Willkie].'. Then somebody else comes in and he says, ‘Of course I won’t [FDR speaks for Willkie].'.
....[CLive Comment: Does FDR's mimicking what J.P. Morgan might ask Willkie to do if Willkie is elected reflect a more personal understanding of how J.P. Morgan perhaps interacted with FDR?]
FDR: "“Now, old Sam Rosenman was in this morning. I was fixin’ up with him—going over the final draft of a little dedication speech tomorrow at three schoolhouses - and he got off a very searching remark that I never thought of before 'that you were right, that Willkie is using the tactics of Hitler. Fascism. Hitler’s fascism - Naziism - based upon the iteration, and reiteration, of the same thing - so often that after a while people are going to believe it [FDR speaks for Rosenman].'. 'I'm going to put nine million men at work [FDR speaks for Willkie].'. That’s very, very nice. 'I'm going to put nine million men at work [FDR speaks for Willkie].'. That’s very, very nice. And after he’s said it thirty or forty times, he’s made a real issue of it [until the voter says], ‘Willkie’s the fella who’s goin’ to put nine million men to work, I’ll vote for him.’ It’s the iteration —‘promise, promise, promise’ every single morning, noon, and night. After a while people get to believe it... Willkie is using the tactics of Hitler, Fascism…Naziism."
Oval Office sometime between August 22 and 27
Present FDR and is aid Lowell Mellett
Background: The recording of this tape would clearly have been unintentional. FDR is plotting political slander against his opponent Wendell Willkie. For a number of years Willkie lived apart from his wife while he had an affair with a woman prominent in New York literary circles, who FDR refers to as an extremely attractive little tart. FDR is plotting with Mellett on ways to undermine Willkie. FDR also refers to his unsuccessful Presidential campaign in 1920 when Warren Harding and Calvin Coolidge defeated his James Cox-FDR ticket as it relates to Harding's Negro ancestry. The 'trial' FDR refers to relates to a 1932 hearing where FDR as Governor and the Democratic party's nominee for President had to decide whether to fire New York's Mayor Walker. Walker resigned from office sparing FDR the issue.
FDR: "Uh, Lowell, on this … ah … thing. I don’t know if you remember,
we were talking about the story… and so forth and so on. There was a
fellow once upon a time who was named Daugherty, and he helped to run
Harding’s campaign against the Democrats. He was slick as hell. He went
down through an agent to a Methodist minister in Marion, the town where
Harding’s mother and grandmother came from. This friend of Daugherty’s
got hold of the Methodist minister and told him the story about
Harding’s mother having a Negro mother. In other words, Daugherty
planted it on the Methodist minister, who was a Democrat, and showed him
certain papers … that proved the case. The Methodist minister, who was a
Democrat, got all upset and he started the story all over the place. The
press took it up, and it was the most terrific boomerang against us.
Now I agree with you that there is… so far as the Old Man goes [FDR], we can’t use it…. [Unintelligible section of tape as FDR presumably lowers his voice]... spread it as a word-of-mouth thing, or by some people way, way down the line. We can’t have any of our principal speakers refer to it, but the people down the line can get it out [he rapped on his desk]. I mean the Congress speakers, and state speakers, and so forth. They can use the raw material…. Now, now, if they want to play dirty politics in the end, we’ve got our own people…. Now, you’d be amazed at how this story about the gal is spreading around the country….
MELLETT: "It’s Out."
FDR: "Awful nice gal, writes for the magazine and so forth and so on, a book reviewer. But nevertheless, there is the fact. And one very good way of bringing it out is by calling attention to the parallel in conversation…. Jimmy Walker, once upon a time, was living openly with this gal all over New York, including the house across the street from me…. She was an extremely attractive little tart…. Jimmy and his wife had separated—for all intents and purposes they had separated. And it came to my trial—before me was Jimmy Walker, nineteen hundred and thirty-two, and Jimmy goes and hires his former wife, for ten thousand dollars, to come up to Albany on a Saturday—Jimmy was a good Catholic and he hadn’t been to church in five whole years—and he paid his wife ten thousand dollars to go up there, to Albany, on a Friday afternoon, after my trial had finished for the week—we were to go on on Monday. Jimmy had never spent a Sunday in Albany in his life, but Mrs. Walker comes up to Albany, lives with him ostensibly in the same suite in the hotel, and on Sunday the two of them go to Mass at the Albany Cathedral together. Price? Ten thousand dollars….Now, now Mrs. Willkie may not have been hired, but in effect she’s been hired to return to Wendell and smile and make this campaign with him. Now, whether there was a money price behind it, I don’t know, but it’s the same idea."
MELLETT: "Doesn’t have to be a money price. It’s a nice place to live [chuckles]…. I never heard of Daugherty planting the Negro story."
FDR: "He planted it on us."
FDR: "Did you know that?"
MELLETT: "I didn’t know he planted it. I knew the story, of course. I know it was a very unwise story to disseminate."
FDR [Recalling the 1920 campaign]: "Here’s another interesting…
sidelight. After we got licked that November, Cox and I, Van-Lear Black
came to see me in…. Oh. I guess I went to see him in Baltimore, right
after the election when I was going down to recuperate and shoot some
ducks down in Louisiana, and I stopped off in Baltimore. And Van Black,
whom I’d known rather slightly, he said,
"Look, we want to make you the head of New York, New Jersey, and New England of the Fidelity and Deposit Company as vice-president.”.
I said, “Van, there are two … considerations. I don’t want to give up my law practice entirely, want to keep my hand in. I will do this, if you wish, I’ll make a contract to spend from one o’clock every day with the F&D. But up to one o’clock—noon—I’ll be doing my law work. Your job with the F&D is partly giving out glad-hand stuff, so I’ll spend my lunch hour for you.” I said, “The other condition is that you let me look over your list of officers and vice-presidents. I’ve got to pick ‘em. They may be all right, but I’ve got to pick ‘em myself.”
He said, “That’s fair enough,” and went out.
And there on the list was Daugherty, in charge of Ohio for the F&D.
I said, “Mr. Black, I can’t do that.”
“Well,” he said, “he’s been our agent there, he’s handled all our legislative work in Ohio … and I can’t let him go. Well,” he said, “I think he’s going to the Cabinet.”
I said, “I think so, too, but I can’t work for a company that Daugherty remains in.”
So, in order to get me for the F&D, the F&D fired Daugherty outright!
