Thank you Richard Cotten. This week we're going to look at a
part of 20th Century American history that has been censored from
our history books by America's enemies. An outstanding figure in
the story of modern America, and central to the struggle of
American patriots to take our country back, was the great industrialist
and humanitarian Henry Ford, Sr.
Ford was born in 1863, a farm boy from rural Michigan who
loved to do mechanical work with his hands and experiment with
new concepts in his shop. He was a deeply moral man, to whom
honesty, work, and sobriety were sacred concepts. And he was a
gentle man, in the true sense of the word, who, in the words of
writer Albert Lee, "shared a love of all living things with
naturalist John Burroughs and who shared campfires with his
friend Thomas Edison. Ford was known to 'nail up a door for a
whole season rather than disturb a robin's nest,' and he
'postponed [a] hay harvest because ground birds were brooding in
the field.' He was a man of peace, saying ... that he would give
his entire fortune if he could shorten [World War I] by a single
Marxists hate Henry Ford. But most of the workers in his
factories loved and revered him. In fact, it would not be an
exaggeration to say that when Henry Ford began his seven-year
long, 5 million dollar "lesson to the American people"
in 1920, he was probably the best-loved living American.
He did not invent the automobile, but he was one of its
pioneers. His inborn genius for innovation and efficiency enabled
him to produce the first car for the common man, the Model T.
Before Ford, cars were mostly playthings of the wealthy. The
Model T began its production run in 1908 and was not replaced until 1927.
As Ford increased the efficiency of his plants, instead of
pocketing the profits, he constantly lowered the price, which
ultimately fell from $590 to $260. And he astounded the world in
1914 when he ordered the minimum wage paid to even the lowliest
Ford employee to be raised to $5 per day, at a time when the average
wage to the skilled workers of his competitors was far less than
half that amount. He began one of the first profit-sharing plans,
distributing $12 million to his employees in the first year
alone. He caused jaws to drop again when, believing that useful knowledge
should be used for the benefit of the people, he gave up millions
by making all Ford patents free to everyone. He led a successful
one-man crusade against the "Selden patent,"
benefitting his competitors as much as he.
Much is known about Henry Ford. A recent series of Ford Motor
Company TV advertisements even features his face and quotes some
of his statements as "words to live by." So why am I
speaking of him on this program which is usually devoted to the
hidden aspects of politics and history? Because what is not so well
known today is that Henry Ford devoted years of his life and a
substantial part of his fortune to awakening the American people
to the enemies of our nation. You see, the movement to free
America from Internationalist domination did not begin with the
Chuck Harders and Tom Valentines or other Johnny-come-latelies.
It certainly didn't begin with me, either, though I think it is
becoming clearer with every passing day that American Dissident
Voices alone dares to tell our listeners the whole truth about our nation's
In 1916 Ford led an ill-fated mission to stop the slaughter of
World War I. He assembled a disparate coalition of clergymen,
writers, politicians, pacifists, and businessmen, chartered the
Norwegian ocean liner Oscar II and sailed for Europe in hopes of
inspiring the neutral powers to mediate a peace treaty. His coalition
squabbled among themselves, and the forces for war proved too
strong. Ford returned to America a somewhat discouraged but wiser
man. He never lost his distaste for foreign wars, however, and
spoke out against them and the hidden forces that foment them in
no uncertain terms.
Mme. Rosika Schwimmer, one of the leaders of the Peace Ship
project, was a Jewish diplomat and pacifist who, according to
Ford, was more intelligent than all of the others aboard the ship
put together. She tells the story of her first meeting with Ford,
where he said "I know who started this war - the German-Jewish bankers."
As he slapped some papers hidden in pocket of his coat, he said,
"I have the evidence here - facts! I can't give them out yet
because I haven't got them all. I'll have them soon!"
In an interview with a New York Times reporter on Christmas,
1921, Ford gave some further insight into his education in the
ways of the world while he was on the Peace Ship. "It was
the Jews themselves who convinced me of the direct relationship
between the international Jew and war. In fact, they went out of their way
to convince me. On the peace ship were two very prominent Jews.
We had not been at sea 200 miles before they began telling me of
the power of the Jewish race, of how they controlled the world through
their control of gold, and that the Jew and no one but the Jew could
end the war. I was reluctant to believe it but they went into
detail to convince me of the means by which the Jews controlled
the war, how they had the money, how they had cornered all the
basic materials needed to fight the war and all that, and they
talked so long and so well that they convinced me. They said, and
they believed, that the Jews started the war, that they would
continue it as long as they wished, and that until the Jew stopped the
war it could not be stopped. I was so disgusted I would have
liked to turn the ship back."
A Book for All Americans
Ford had become convinced that there was an organized,
dangerous, largely secret, and incredibly powerful menace to
America, almost completely Jewish at its highest levels, and he
was determined to do something about it. He earnestly believed
that if this menace was exposed to the light of day, that responsible
and moral Jews would cast out this cancerous group from their
midst. He was honestly surprised by the abuse he received from
most of his Jewish friends and business associates after his educational
work had begun, and we may be amazed by the fact that a few
remained cordial. Henry Ford believed that if the kept press would
not tell the truth on what he termed the Jewish Question, they it
was his duty to his God and his country to do it himself.
He purchased what was at the time a small weekly newspaper in
his home town in Michigan, The Dearborn Independent, and turned
into his national voice, with nationwide distribution. His
espousal of traditional values combined with a practical populism
struck a chord with many Americans, for soon the sleepy weekly had
turned into an influential giant, with a circulation at one point
of nearly half a million. Ford lost money on the paper, selling
it for five cents per copy or one dollar a year. When Jewish censorship
kept it off the newsstands in some cities, he made it available
through the local Ford agencies. He neither solicited nor accepted
advertising - he would not have the paper subject to Jewish or
any outside influence. The masthead meant what it said -
He gathered around him some of the most talented writers and
researchers in the business, virtually cleaning out the editorial
staff of the largest newspaper in the state, the Detroit News. He
hired the best private investigators. He employed the services of
patriotic Congressmen and diplomats. He despatched his agents to
foreign countries to dig up the facts.
1920 marked the beginning of the publication, in serial form,
of Henry Ford's research series in the Dearborn Independent. Each
week, the paper carried a major story exposing an aspect of
Jewish power and influence. One of the men Ford had hired away
from the Detroit News, who would eventually become the head of
the Independent, was the brilliant editor and columnist William
J. Cameron. Cameron at first protested bitterly at the subject
matter of the articles on the Jewish Question and almost bolted with
a few other staffers who didn't want to touch this
"forbidden" subject, but as the evidence began piling
up, he became convinced that Ford was right. He was the author of
most of the Independent's articles in this series, and stayed
with Ford for the next 20 years. These articles would eventually
be collected in book form under the title The International Jew.
The articles were a sensation and the book became a nationwide success,
in fact one of the greatest best-sellers of all time.
While Ford's educational series on Jewish power was running,
the Independent had a circulation of between a quarter million
and a half million copies per week. When the articles were
reprinted in book form, eventually to fill four volumes, it was
not unusual for each press run, of which there were many for each volume,
to total over 200,000 copies. It is estimated that more than 10
million copies of the book were sold in the United States alone. The
International Jew was translated into sixteen languages, including
Arabic, and was distributed by the millions in Europe, South
America, and the Middle East. Each of the 4 volumes was a
full-sized book of about 250 pages, and was sold for a mere 25
cents. Ford lost nearly five million dollars on this venture, and
that doesn't count the losses to his business due to several
Jewish boycotts and lawsuits.
To evaluate the tenor of Ford's lessons to the American
people, let us look at a few passages from his preface to the
"Why discuss the Jewish Question? Because it is here, and
because its emergence into American thought should contribute to
its solution, and not to a continuance of those bad conditions
which surround the Question in other countries.
"The Jewish Question has existed in the United States for
a long time. Jews themselves have known this, even if Gentiles
have not. There have been periods in our own country when it has
broken forth with a sullen sort of strength which presaged darker
things to come. Many signs portend that it is approaching an acute stage.
"Not only does the Jewish Question touch those matters
that are of common knowledge, such as financial and commercial
control, usurpation of political power, monopoly of necessities,
and autocratic direction of the very news that the American
people read; but it reaches into cultural regions and so touches
the very heart of American life.
"... It is interwoven with much of the menace of
organized and calculated disorder which troubles the nations today.
It is not of recent growth, but its roots go deep ....
"The motive of this work is simply a desire to make facts
known to the people. Other motives have, of course, been ascribed
to it. But the motive of prejudice or any form of antagonism is
hardly strong enough to support such an investigation as this.
Moreover, had an unworthy motive existed, some sign of it would inevitably
appear in the work itself. We confidently call the reader to
witness that the tone of these articles is all that it should be.
The International Jew and his satellites, as the conscious
enemies of all that Anglo-Saxons mean by civilization, are not
spared, nor is that unthinking mass which defends anything that a Jew
does, simply because it has been taught to believe that what
Jewish leaders do is Jewish. Neither do these articles proceed
upon a false emotion of brotherhood and apology, as if this
stream of doubtful tendency in the world were only accidentally
Jewish. We give the facts as we find them; that of itself is sufficient
protection against prejudice or passion."
A few of the articles' titles should give you an idea of the
information in the book:
Jewish History in the United States - Does a Definite Jewish
Program Exist? - The Historic Basis of Jewish Imperialism - Does
Jewish Power Control the World Press? - The All-Jewish Mark on
"Red Russia" - Jewish Testimony in Favor of Bolshevism
- How Jews in the US Conceal Their Strength - Jewish Control of
the American Theater - Jewish Supremacy in the Motion Picture
World - "Jewish Rights" Clash With American Rights -
Jewish Degradation of American Baseball - Jewish Jazz Becomes Our
National Music - Jewish Hot-Beds of Bolshevism in the US - Dr.
Levy, a Jew, Admits His People's Error - The Gigantic Jewish
Liquor Trust and Its Career - The Jews' Complaint Against
"Americanism" - The Gentle Art of Changing Jewish Names
-- and dozens of others, a total of eighty articles in all.
Neither The International Jew nor Henry Ford were perfect.
Ford and Cameron reflected the prejudices of their times when
they took irrelevant stabs at Darwin and Nietzsche. They were
sometimes too eager to accept quotes and documents from dubious
sources, when much stronger documentation on the same points was
already available. And when tremendous financial pressure was
brought to bear, and when a mysterious automobile accident sent
Ford to the hospital, nearly missing killing him, he did cave in
to the pressure and direct one of his subordinates to sign the
phony apology written for the purpose by prominent Jewish
attorney Louis Marshall. His post-apology actions indicate that
Ford had not altered his opinions. Despite its few flaws, though,
the book is a magnificent piece of work, a priceless distillation
of many thousands of man-hours of expensive research and
compilation, a magnifying glass applied to the hidden sources of
immorality, vice, degeneracy, and subversion.
The International Jew was available in libraries and
bookstores across America. As I've already pointed out, it was
one of the biggest best-sellers of all time. Henry Ford felt that
his book was so important that at one point a copy was presented
to all purchasers of new Ford automobiles. Yet today this book is almost impossible
to find. You will not be able to buy it in your local bookstore,
nor check it out at your local library. If it were not for a few courageous
Americans keeping it in print and available to you, you would not be
able to find it at all.
The truth is that here in so-called "democratic,
pluralist" America this book has been nakedly suppressed. Is it
because this book is a hate-filled anti-Jewish polemic? No, not
at all. The book's tone is not at all anti-Jewish, and again and
again it appeals to the reason and moral sense of its Jewish readers
to put a stop to the abuses of their leaders. It is scrupulously
fair, even-handed, and factual. It is because of its extensive documentation
and the unassailable facts which it presents that it has been
suppressed. For The International Jew is a threat - it's a threat
to those men of money and power who would put a sack over our heads
and force us unknowingly and unwillingly into the "New World
Order" they have been preparing for us for decades. This
book is a threat to those who would take away our weapons of self-defense,
and who would take away our freedom and our children's future. No
other patriotic radio program dares to offer its listeners this
book, because they know the incredible pressures that the guilty and
the powerful will bring to bear upon them if they do. But
American Dissident Voices is not an ordinary radio program. We
hold our duty to bring the uncensored truth to our listeners as
our highest obligation.
We are proud to offer Henry Ford, Sr.'s The International Jew as our Radio Offer Number 16. This is more than a simple book -
The International Jew is a four volume set, containing nearly
1000 pages of insight and research. Volume 1 is The International
Jew: The World's Foremost Problem; Volume 2 is Jewish Activities
in the United States; Volume 3 is Jewish Influences in American
Life; and Volume 4 is Aspects of Jewish Power in the United
States. All are photographically reproduced and are exactly as they were
published by Henry Ford and his research staff at the Dearborn Independent.
Henry Ford commissioned the best researchers available to get to
the bottom of the mysteries of modern power politics. The result
was this book in four volumes. Its insights into the roots of
today's political situation are astounding and prophetic. To any
who would hope to save our country and our people, the knowledge contained
within its pages is invaluable. The International Jew is
available to all who send a donation of $40 or more this week to
keep this program on the air, as our Radio Offer Number 16.
Remember, this is the complete 4-volume set, exactly as commissioned
and published by industrialist and patriot Henry Ford. Just send
as much as you can afford to support this program, a minimum of
$40, to National Vanguard Books, Department R, PO Box 90,
Hillsboro WV 24946 USA, and don't forget to ask for Radio Offer
Consider this. Henry Ford did not have to do what he did. He
was the living incarnation of success. He was by far the richest
industrialist of his day. He was loved and admired by millions.
Among the common people, he was ranked with the greatest men of
all time. Political power could have been his had he wanted it.
But he did go forward with his investigation and explication of
the Jewish Question, at the cost of a large portion of his
wealth, at the cost of much of the time and energy of an aging
older man, and at the cost of the alienation of many friends,
associates, and even family members. He well knew that he was potentially putting
his life in peril by opposing these powerful moneyed interests.
Henry Ford did this because he felt a higher duty, a duty that
transcended all of those considerations. Henry Ford acted in obedience
to a duty which we of our generation must rediscover if our children
are to have a future. However discouraging the odds may seem at
the moment, and no matter how easy it may be slip back into our
easy chair or into our accustomed work, we must discharge this
duty: Wherever we find it, and whatever disguise it wears - whether
a clerical collar or a professor's tweeds or the stylish tailored
suits of the networks' talking heads - we must oppose evil.
Until next week, this is Kevin Alfred Strom reminding you to
do right, and fear no one.
