In 1933, Major General Smedley D. Butler, USMC, who had won the Congressional Medal of Honor twice, was approached by men representing a cabal of multi-millionaire industrialists and bankers. They hated President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and they saw the New Deal as a threat to their interests. Among other things, FDR had announced that the U.S. would stop using its military to interfere in Latin American affairs—i.e. the Banana Wars in which Butler himself had fought to protect the interests of the United Fruit Company.
Because of Butler’s former role in upholding business interests abroad, the conspirators thought they they could recruit him to muster an army of 500,000 to overthrow the United States government, that they could control coverage in the press, and that they could subjugate or eliminate President Roosevelt. Boy were they wrong.
Traitors like Prescott Bush, grandfather of George W. Bush, tried to buy Butler with thirty million dollars and a “co-president” position, but he was not for sale.
Smedley Butler blew the whistle on the “business plot,” otherwise known as the “fascist coup,” which he reported to Congress. Some of the conspirators included Prescott Bush, the DuPont Family, William Randolph Hearst, Howard Heinz, E.F. Hutton, Andrew W. Mellon, J.P. Morgan, J. Howard Pew, Rockefeller Associates, U.S. Steel, General Motors, Goodyear Tires, Chase National Bank, and Felix Warburg.
The plot failed, but no one was prosecuted….
It took the Illuminati another thirty years until they would successfully assassinate a president and stage a coup in Washington, D.C. That was in 1963, when they killed Kennedy.
But, first, Butler became an advocate for peace. Click on the link below to read the full text of his book, War is a Racket:
