                         THE FREEMEN

Dear Brethren,

Everyone knows about the apparent suicide by Adolf Hitler 66 years earlier on 30th April, 1945,  however very little is known about another suicide/ assassination that took place 66 years earlier on 12th April, 1945. I am talking about FDR ( Franklin Delano Roosevelt) the World War 2 president of United States of America.

Lies being taught;

FDR died of a cerebral hemorrhage.

Now the truth;

On April 5 1945 FDR writes to Saudi King Ibn Saud stating;-

“Your Majesty will recall that on previous occasions I communicated to you the attitude of the American Government toward Palestine and made clear our desire that no decision be taken with respect to the basic situation in that country without full consultation with both Arabs and Jews. Your Majesty will also doubtless recall that during our recent conversation I assured you that I would take no action, in my capacity as Chief of the Executive Branch of this Government, which might prove hostile to the Arab people”.  See the full text here ;- 

Strangely exactly a week after FDR wrote the above letter, President Franklin D. Roosevelt is found dead on April 12th 1945. Normally FDR always stayed at the house of Jew Bernard Baruch, but this year he did not. His suicide or assassination cleared the final hurdle for creation and recognition of Israel.

Harry Truman recognized the State of Israel on May 14, 1948, eleven minutes after it declared itself a nation. FDR would not have done it. 

Following are a few excerpts including eye witness accounts of suicide / assassination of FDR.
“My mother always claimed that she was shopping in Bloomingdales in NYC at the time the news of FDR's death was announced. She said that the announcement over the store intercom that day, right after it happened, clearly stated that he'd shot himself in the head.

She also said that not long after, the story given out by the news media suddenly changed to his death having been of natural causes.

All I can add to this is that my mother never wavered from this account, and had no reason whatsoever to lie about what she'd heard that day.”

“My Grandfather was docked in the Philippines at the time of FDR's death. He remembers that same announcement going over the ships intercom”

In April 1945, a seventeen year old Georgia National Guard private was posted at the bottom of the stairs leading to the veranda of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Warm Springs, Georgia home.

An elderly black man was rocking in a chair, tears streaming down his face, when all of a sudden, in his grief he stated, "The Master's gone, the Master done shot himself."

With that, the FBI and Secret Service agents grabbed the old black man and removed him from the area, never to be seen again. 

The President had a decision to make. To drop or not to drop the atomic bomb on purely civilian targets in Japan. He may have other things on his mind; his hand in 'Pearl harbor', weighing heavily was the matter of the bomb and Israel.

“This same elder gentleman told me that when he was a child of 12, his father was a Mortician in Washington, DC and his family resided at the Funeral Home where his father was employed. This Funeral Home was eventually engaged by the White House to embalm the corpse of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, upon his death.

The elder gentleman then asked me; “Do you know why FDR’s funeral was a closed casket, when he died of natural causes?”

I didn’t know the answer! Then the elder gentleman responded: “Because my father didn’t know how to hide a bullet hole to the head!”

The man went on to elaborate how the Secret Service and FBI had visited the funeral home during this time frame and made everyone swear under threat of death, not to reveal what we saw or knew! Nothing was ever reported to the public or printed about it in the history books and, “I’m too old now to give a shit about their threats!”

Just in case the old guy was simply trying to best my research on JFK; I wrote down the name of the Funeral Home and his last name, once I entered my vehicle. Later that afternoon I began to research FDR’s death and burial and discovered that the name of the Funeral Home matched! I then found a census report for Washington, DC of that year and discovered that the old gentleman’s father was in fact a Mortician and he resided at the Funeral Home with his wife and two children!

5) Not knowing as much then as I do today; I telephoned the Washington Post and spoke to Bob Woodward, who was one of the two famous investigative reporters responsible for bringing down the Nixon Administration. I told Mr. Woodward about the possibility that FDR had been assassinated in office and was covered up! I gave him what information I could and told him that I hoped he would be able to solve this incident as well! This was seven years ago and nothing was ever printed, discussed in the Post or was ever released by any news service! Two years ago, I found the evidence of the Treaty of Verona and many other details discussed herein, which strongly suggests that freedom of the press no longer exists in America, (if it ever did!)
Some of you “Doubting Thomas’s” may want to argue with me that: “If this is such a …. READ MORE HERE>> 090805.Matrix-US .Constitution”

Mortuary Workers Claimed  FDR Had Gunshot Wound To His Head
By Unknown Author
While, living in Birmingham in the late 1980′s, I heard the story of a man by the name of Isaacson (I believe that is the correct spelling); he worked in a drug store in that city and one of his close relatives told me this story. While working in the drug store, Issacson befriended a man who sold drugs apparently this man was a traveling saleman or maybe a route salesman for drug stores).  Isaacson and the man were talking one day, and the salesman said, “FDR, did die not from a cerebral hemorrhage, but it was caused by a bullet.”  Mr. Issacson asked him, “How do you know?”  The salesman claimed that he had helped to prepare FDR’s body for burial. Mr. Issacson died in the early 1990′s.  I believe that his relative is still alive, but I have not talked to the relative in about 15 years. (He has moved out of B’ham.)
There was no reason for anyone to lie about this incident; yet, I find it ironic that the woman who wrote that blog told a similar story but with a connection to Washington DC.  Where this salesman came from (Atlanta?), I don’t know.  And, he could have lied.

What else that interests me is that:
1. After Roosevelt died, Truman sent most of the Secret Service men in to the military (we were at war).  I found this odd because it seemed to have been a type of punishment which made little sense to me. ...

2. In one of the books by Fletch Prouty (former blacks ops operator at the Pentagon who personally knew for Secretary of State John Foster and his brother Allen Dulles, who later became head of the CIA), Stalin had sent his son to view the dead body of FDR.  However, the son was refused this privilege.  Stalin reported that “They [Churchill & co.?] tried to poison me.  I wonder if they go FDR.” (This is not a quote but a paraphrase.)  Apparently, Stalin felt that someone had done in FDR.

My English teacher in prep school told our class in 1947 that he knew Madame Shoumatoff, who was painting the president's portrait at the Little White House in Warm Springs, Ga., where FDR died, and that she had told him the president shot himself and that she had seen his body slumped over the desk with a pistol in his hand

In about 1982 I was working at a country club in the Houston area as Head  Golf Professional when I happened to be reading on top of my sales counter my first book on the JFK assassination titled "Best Evidence," by an author named Lifton (can't remember his first name). Into my golf shop walked one of my favorite members, a doctor who I will hereafter call Dr. X, on his way to get a golf cart and play a round of golf, when he noticed the book I was reading. A brief conversation about it ensued and, one thing leading to another, the following exchange (almost verbatim) ensued between Dr. X and myself:
Dr. X: "You know, Curtis, that Kennedy thing may just be the tip of the  iceberg when it comes to government coverups. I was at a cocktail party  some time ago when I had a conversation with a Pathologist about things like this and he told me that FDR didn't die of a stroke. He committed suicide."

Me: "Really? How did he know this?" [I was taken completely by surprise because, although FDR died many years before I was born, all historical accounts I had read and heard of told the "stroke" version.]

Dr X: "Because this doctor told me, 'Dr. X, I was in attendance when the autopsy was performed on him and I removed the bullet from his brain.' "

At that point I got the feeling that Dr. X didn't want to say much more, plus  he was right on schedule for his round of golf and I didn't want to detain him with chit-chat so he went out the door. Neither of us mentioned this again and shortly after that I left that country club to work elsewhere so I never saw him again. At that time (1982) he was in his mid-60's so he should definitely be retired by now and could very well be deceased; however, he had a very credible bearing about him (my behind-his-back nickname for him was Marcus Welby, MD) and I never felt any reason to doubt anything he told me.

My grandfather told me in the eighties, that while he was aboard a radar vessel, they received news that FDR died of a "self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head." He said that shortly after the announcement, it was revised to "cerebral hemorrhage."

The father of a close friend told me in the early 60's that an insurance client of his was a secret service agent guarding FDR. The agent told my friend's dad that FDR shot himself in the head. I have never heard or read any corroboration to this story until I bumped into this post. E. R. G.

The World War II Cairo conference between Pres. Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill, and Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek ended on Oct. 26, 1943. That evening I was given orders to fly a group of participants from Cairo to Tehran. Up to that time, I had not been aware that there was going to be a Big Four meeting of the Super-Powers in Tehran.

As I went out to the plane that morning to get it ready to go, two limousines came from the city. They were T. V. Soong’s Chinese delegates. I flew them to Tehran that day. En route, I stopped at Habbaniyah in Iraq for refueling, and while on the ground an Air Force B-25 arrived with an old friend of mine flying it, and with L. Col. Elliott Roosevelt, the President’s son. I introduced him and Roosevelt to the Chinese, and vice versa.

I don’t know whether any of you ever realized this, but years later the fact that Elliott Roosevelt had gone to the Tehran conference brought up one of the most amazing untold facts in our history. I can only imagine why more had not been written about it. Because Elliott had met Stalin in Tehran with his father in 1943, in late 1946, Gardner Cowless, publisher of LOOK magazine asked him to go to Moscow to interview Stalin.

Roosevelt accepted this offer and did interview Stalin there. At the end of a long interview, he turned to the Generalissimo and asked one more question, “Why is it that my mother has never been permitted to visit Moscow even though she has made three very formal applications for the trip?”
Stalin glared at Elliott and said, “You don’t know why?”
Elliott replied, “No!”
Quickly, Stalin responded, “Don’t you know who killed your father?”
Roosevelt-shocked-answered, “No.”
Stalin rising from his chair, continued, “Well, I’ll tell you why I have not invited her here. As soon as your father died, I asked my ambassador in Washington to go immediately to Georgia with a request to view the body.” Stalin believed that if Gromyko could see the body he would confirm that the cerebral hemorrhage that had caused his death had caused extensive discoloration and distortion.

Elliot responded that he knew nothing about that and then Stalin said, “Your mother refused to permit the lid of the coffin to be opened so that my ambassador could see the body.” Adding “I sent him there three times trying to impress upon your mother that it was very important for him to view the President’s body. She never accepted that. I have never forgiven her.”
This forced Elliott to ask this last question, “…but why?”

Stalin took a few steps around the office, and almost in a rage roared, “They poisoned your father, of course, just as they have tried repeatedly to poison me.”
“They, who are they,” Elliot asked
“The Churchill gang!” Stalin roared, “They poisoned your father, and they continue to try to poison me…the Churchill gang!”

I had heard, while in Tehran, that Roosevelt and Churchill had had a strenuous argument in front of Stalin and Chiang during the conference on the subject of decolonization of South East Asia. I have read it in a government publication of the time. Then, this account of Elliott’s visit to Moscow in 1946 was written and signed by him and appeared in the February 9, 1986 issue of the nationwide Sunday Supplement magazine  “PARADE.”

Modern history displays a long-term plan by dynastic banking families and their allies to create an Orwellian World dictatorship ("New World Order") in which wealth will be further concentrated, and human life will be further degraded.
Wars and depressions, modern art and culture, new age religion, sexual "liberation" and feminism, are all part of this design. The role of historians and the mass media is to obscure this plan and to beguile the masses into thinking they are free and their leaders represent their interests.
This conviction is reinforced by Col. Curtis Dall's book, '"FDR: My Exploited Father-in-Law (1970). Dall, who was married to Franklin Roosevelt's daughter Anna, spent many nights at the White House and often guided FDR around in his wheelchair. In his book he says;
Pg. 142:
"The accounts concerning FDR's death differed considerably."
"..the lady on my right opened a most startling line of conversation:I suppose you know what finally happened to FDR there?"
I replied, this time rather firmly, "No, I do not. I've read several different accounts of it." Then I turned my attention to breaking a dinner roll for the addition of some butter, as a diversionary operation.
"Well", she said, "how very extraordinary!" Whereupon she began to tell me some alleged details concerning the distressing incident, as I looked in vain for some relief from my left side. Unfortunately, that lady was deep in conversation with the gentleman on her left.
That recital from her about Warm Springs hit me like a thunderbolt. I began to feel ill, and bluntly said,
"How do you know and where did you hear all these things you are telling me?"
She replied equally firm, "My cousin, Frank Allcorn, was Mayor of Warm Springs at the time; he told me!"
I put down my spoon for good and almost left the table, but decided it would be best for me to sit it out. Dinner was then completely finished for me. Apparently, from what I heard, Henry Morgenthau, Jr., was
there in Warm Springs at the time. What a strange coincidence! I wondered who left Warm Springs in the car with him.

Pg. 143:
The body of FDR, I heard, was taken to Macon, Georgia, where he was cremated. The almost empty casket containing his ashes then traveled north. Small wonder that Joe Stalin, that unfriendly, rugged realist, pointedly commented in the press, "The body did not lie in State!"
I subsequently read some of Doc O'Connors comments, along with those of other writers, on the subject. Much of it sounded like "canned" material, well polished for a specific political effect.

Dall maintained a family loyalty but could not avoid several disheartening conclusions in his book. He portrays the legendary president not as a leader but as a "quarterback" with little actual power. The "coaching staff" consisted of a coterie of handlers ("advisers" like Louis Howe, Bernard Baruch and Harry Hopkins) who represented the international banking cartel.

Pg. 71:
"Long before World War I broke out, Bernard Baruch was an important figure in Wall Street. After World War I, he became a Titan!
By 1914, Bernard Baruch had developed two unusual qualities. First, those of an able financier, a man with an alert, broad vision. Secondly, he was one who had gained the confidence of important world politicians and world money powers. This combination of talents caught the "eye" of world money and the "ear" of world political leaders, those who actually groom and select the candidates for President and Vice President in advance, for both the Republican and Democratic Party slates.

If, perchance, some readers should be startled by that observation, I am most sympathetic with them and their feelings, because I was likewise startled when I first learned about that situation. Then I began to study the matter, which is a subject not appearing in high school or college textbooks, but emerges only from much explorative work, and placing the pieces together to form a mosaic.

Before World War I, it was said that "Barney" Baruch was worth a million dollars or more. After World War I was over, it was alleged that he was worth about two hundred million dollars, a suitable figure for a Titan."

For Dall, FDR ultimately was a traitor manipulated by "World Money" and motivated by conceit and personal ambition.

FDR's another perfidy was suppressing information about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, at the cost of almost 3,000 lives. He did this because the bankers needed US involvement in WWII, something 85% of Americans opposed. The Japanese had instructions to call off the attack if they lost the element of surprise. Dall Says;

Pg. 133:
I have often wondered if, as part of a long-range plan, FDR deliberately ignored the possibility and danger of an attack on Pearl Harbor by the approaching massive Japanese Task Force, an attack made on us almost by engraved invitation. He must have! Then, if such were the case, he must have wanted it. Who told him to "want" it? What manner of leadership was that?

FDR may also be feeling guilty of Betrayal at Yalta Conference where under the influence of Jewish Lobby he allowed Jewish Russia the control of all of central and eastern Europe.

But what tipped the scales was that on April 3 - Preparations began at Tinian Island to support the 509th Composite Group, and to assemble the atomic bombs. 
On April 11 - Oppenheimer reported optimal performance with implosion compression in sub-scale tests.

The news of Atomic bomb conveyed to him on 11th April, 1945 and the pressures being put on him to use these inhuman bombs against purely civilian targets was perhaps too much to bear. 


Hidden government is perfectly capable of having another President if the incumbent does not follow the laid out path.

                    THE FREEMEN

Dear Brethren,


A student asked a teacher, “What is Love?” The teacher said, “In order to answer your question, go to the corn field, choose the biggest corn and come back. But the rule is: You can go through them only once and not turn back to pick. Once you miss it, you cannot go back to it.”

The student headed for the field, and went through the first row. He saw one big corn, but he wondered may be there is a bigger one later. Then he saw another bigger one but wondered if there may be an even bigger one waiting for him.

Afterward, when he had completed more than half of the corn field, he started to realize that the corn growing around the area were not as big as the previous one he saw. He knew he missed the biggest one, and he regretted it. So, he went back to his teacher empty handed.

The teacher told him, “This is Love you keep looking for a better one, but you only realize it when you have already missed the person.”

What is Marriage then?” the student asked.

The teacher said, “In order to answer your question, go back to the corn field and choose the biggest corn and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick.”

The student went back to the corn field, and this time he was careful not to repeat the previous mistake. When he reached the middle of the field, he picked a corn that he felt satisfied with, and came back to the teacher.
The teacher told him, “When picking the corn this time you looked for one that is just nice, that you had faith in and are satisfied with. This is Marriage. Life is not about searching for the happiness but to feel contentment in the things you have.”
