"Edward Mandell House

In 1913, Colonel Edward Mandell House helped to pick the charter members of the original Federal Reserve Board.

Edward Mandell House (originally “Huis” which became “House”) was born July 26, 1858 in Houston, Texas. He became active in Texas politics and served as an advisor to President Woodrow Wilson, particularly in the area of foreign affairs. House functioned as Wilson's chief negotiator in Europe during the negotiations for peace (1917-1919), and as chief deputy for Wilson at the Paris Peace Conference. He died on March 28, 1938 in New York City.

Edward and his father had friends in the Ku Klux Klan. The Klan dispensed vigilante justice after the Civil War. In 1880 a new legitimate group was in charge of dispensing justice in Texas -- the Texas Rangers. Many of the Texas Rangers were members of the Klan. Edward was the new master. Edward gained their loyalty by stroking their egos. Edward would use his money and influence to try and make them famous. Edward eventually inherited the Texas Ku Klux Klan.

Edward Mandell House helped to make four men governor of Texas: James S. Hogg (1892), Charles A. Culberson (1894), Joseph D. Sayers (1898), and S. W.T. Lanham (1902). After the election House acted as unofficial advisor to each governor. Hogg gave House the title "Colonel" by promoting House to his staff.

Edward wanted to control more than Texas, Edward wanted to control the country. Edward would do so by becoming a king maker instead of a king. Edward knew that if he could control two or three men in the Senate, two or three men in the House; and the President, he could control the country.

Edward would influence the candidate from behind the scenes. The people would perceive one man was representing them, when in reality; an entirely different man was in control. House didn't need to influence millions of people; he need only influence a handful of men. Edward would help establish a secret society in America that would operate in the same fashion -- the Council on Foreign Relations.

Edward Mandell House was instrumental in getting Woodrow Wilson elected as President. Edward had the support of William Jennings Bryan and the financial backing of the House of Rockefeller's National City Bank. Edward became Wilson's closest unofficial advisor.

Edward Mandell House and some of his schoolmates were also members of Cecil Rhodes Round Table group. The Round Table Group, the back bone of the Secret Society, had four pet projects, a graduated income tax, a central bank, creation of a Central Intelligence Agency, and the League of Nations.

Between 1901 and 1913 the House of Morgan and the House of Rockefeller formed close alliances with the Dukes and the Mellons. This group consolidated their power and came to dominate other Wall Street powers including: Carnegie, Whitney, Vanderbilt, Brown-Harriman, and Dillon-Reed. The Round Table Group wanted to control the people by having the government tax people and deposit the peoples money in a central bank. The Group would take control of the bank and therefore have control of the money. The Group would take control of the State Department and formulate government policy, which would determine how the money was spent. The Group would control the CIA which would gather information about people, and script and produce psycho-political operations focused at the people to influence them to act in accord with Round Table Group State Department policy decisions. The Group would work to consolidate all the nations of the world into a single nation, with a single central bank under their control, and a single International Security System. Some of the first legislation of the Wilson Administration was the institution of the graduated income tax (1913) and the creation of a central bank called the Federal Reserve. An inheritance tax was also instituted. These tax laws were used to rationalize the need for legislation that allowed the establishment of tax-exempt foundations. The tax-exempt foundations became the link between the Groupmember's private corporations and the University system. The Group would control the Universities by controlling the sources of their funding. The funding was money sheltered from taxes being channeled in ways which would help achieve Round Table Group aims.

Edward Mandell House had this to say in a private meeting with President Woodrow Wilson:

“[Very] soon, every American will be required to register their biological property in a national system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging. By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will effect our security as a chargeback for our fiat paper currency. Every American will be forced to register or suffer being unable to work and earn a living. They will be our chattel, and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions.

Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, forever to remain economic slaves through taxation, secured by their pledges. They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans and, if by accident one or two should figure it out, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability. After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debt to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges. This will inevitably reap to us huge profits beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor to this fraud which we will call “Social Insurance.” Without realizing it, every American will insure us for any loss we may incur and in this manner, every American will unknowingly be our servant, however begrudgingly. The people will become helpless and without any hope for their redemption and, we will employ the high office of the President of our dummy corporation to foment this plot against America.” "

Here's how I think the assassination may have happened:

Kennedy had an array of enemies. A president always does. Each faction of enemies was used in some way in the plot to kill him. That way, the dog continually chases its tail. Research never gets very far. Or, at least, moves very, very slowly.

The Mafia

Texas

Anti-Castro Cubans

The Military

The CIA

Researchers see someone involved from one of these groups (or others) and wrongly conclude that is who ordered the murder.

But, I think those that gave the order to kill JFK were insulated and removed themselves from the actual process of carrying outhis assassination. It's the old magician's trick of having the audience watch the right hand while the left performs the "magic".

Now, what was the most powerful element in the US in 1963? Who was the most powerful man of that element? Was it/he at odds with Kennedy? Over what? Would this powerful man/element have had the use and ties to Texas, The Mafia, Cubans, the Military? Intell?

...

John McCloy and Allen Dulles, I think, were central to the plot. But there was a higher power at work.

Who did these two work for?

Good overview. I'll add that there were higher powerS at work, spanning the "military industrial" complex that President Eisenhower warned about after waking up from his eight-year Rip Van-Winkle nap to hand the leash of a rabid dog to President Kennedy (yeah, I know Ike was sick a lot), after the heir apparent, Nixon, blew it in spite of Prescott's string-pulling.

Industrial--First and foremost. At one level nascent war-profiteers/Johnson puppeteers Brown & Root/Halliburton and Bell Helicoptor. Also oil moguls HL Hunt & Sons and Clint Murchison and Sid Richardson (all from Texas). At a higher level bankers like Brown Bros Harriman (and JP Morgan--now JP Morgan Chase--still smarting over their failure to overthrow FDR?). At an even higher level the Rockefellers.

Legal--The first level of defense for the Industrial faction. McCloy, who I knew nothing about before this thread, was a Harvard (Ivy League CIA) lawyer for the ruling class, head of the World Bank (ahem, a predecessor to Wolfowitz...). He does seem to have a helluva pedigree--purebred fascist. Ah prairie-______, I'll just say it; he was a Nazi.

Banking--And money laundering. Especially laundering. McCloy was president of the Rockefeller's Chase Manhattan Bank.

http://www.maebrussell.com/Mae%20Brussell%...K%20Assass.html

" McCloy had long been involved in the murky world of espionage, intrigue and Nazis. He spent the decade of the 1930s working out of Paris. Much of his time was spent on a law case stemming from German sabotage in World War I. His investigation took him to Berlin, where he shared a box with Hitler at the 1936 Olympics. He was in contact with Rudolph Hess before the Nazi leader made a mysterious flight to England in 1941....When JFK moved to lower the oil depletion allowance, he incurred the displeasure of John McCloy, whose clients' profits would be trimmed. Hoover, Dulles and McCloy did not belong to the Kennedy fan club. When the president was shot, Hoover controlled the field investigation, and Dulles and McCloy helped mold the final verdict of the Warren Commission."

Then there's Prescott Bush and his laundering activities for the Nazis via Union Bank.

Intelligence--The covert enforcement/assassination branch of the Industrial faction, including friends of Prescott like the treasonous Dulles Bros, and comprised of the NSA/CIA/individual military branches. The co-second level of defense, along with the Military.

Propaganda--CIA Mockingbirds in the media. Were there actual PR firms involved?

Military--The overt enforcement branch of the Industrial faction via Joint Chiefs (?) who were still fuming over the President's rejection of Operation Northwoods and dumping of Chairman Lemnitzer. The co-second level of defense, along with the CIA/Mafia.

Others in this thread are discussing the specific individuals possibly involved (like John "the Constitution is just a scrap of paper to me" McCloy). http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/USAmccloyJ.htm

"As John D. Rockefeller Jr. told his personal lawyer, Thomas M. Debevoise, "McCloy knows so many people in government

circles... that he might be in the way to get information in various quarters about the matter without seeking it, or

revealing his hand."

Contractors--Hired or duped hit-men/muscle including mobsters and (as Stan noted, and Larry Hancock wrote about in "Someone Would Have Talked") misguided gullible (my terms, not Larry's) anti-Castro Cubans.

Congressional--The front-men for the Industrial fascists. Among them Lyndon Johnson who never would have given up his

Majority Leader position if he didn't know he would quickly advance beyond VP, and good ol' boy "Winkin'" Albert Thomas (both

from Texas).

Organizational 1/National-International--Council on Foreign Relations. "From 1954 to 1970, [McCloy] was chairman of the prestigious Council on Foreign Relations in New York, to be succeeded by David Rockefeller, who had worked closely with him at the Chase Bank. McCloy had a long association with the Rockefeller family, going back to his early Harvard days when he taught the young Rockefeller brothers how to sail. He was also a member of the Draper Committee, formed in 1958 by Eisenhower."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_J._McCloy

"The earliest origin of the Council stemmed from a working fellowship of distinguished scholars, tasked to brief President

Woodrow Wilson [who was supposedly the first president to extensively use propaganda, and was supposedly admired by Harry (Pendergast puppet/bomb-dropper/CIA creator/World Bank inventor/original Cold Warrier) Truman (the buck really does stop there)] about options for the postwar world when Germany was defeated. Through 1917-18, this academic band, a prominent member of whom was Wilson's closest adviser

Edward M. House, as well as Walter Lippmann, gathered discreetly at 155th Street and Broadway in New York City, to assemble the strategy for the postwar world. This band of scholars then travelled to the Paris Peace Conference, 1919...The Americans who subsequently returned from the conference became drawn to a discreet club of New York financiers and international lawyers who had organized previously in June 1918 and was headed by Elihu Root; this select group called itself the Council on Foreign Relations. They joined this group and the Council was formally established in New York on July 29, 1921, with 108 founding members, including Elihu Root as a leading member and John W. Davis, the personal attorney for J. P. Morgan, as its founding president. Other luminaries included John Foster Dulles, Herbert Lehman, Henry Stimson, Averell Harriman and the Rockefeller family's public relations expert, Ivy Lee.

The Council initially had strong connections to the Morgan interests, such as the lawyer, Paul Cravath, whose pre-eminent New York law firm (later named Cravath, Swaine & Moore) represented Morgan businesses; and a Morgan partner, Russell Leffingwell, later becoming its first chairman. Over time, however, the locus of power shifted inexorably to the Rockefeller family."....

Alright, just a first stab at a first draft. Many more drafts needed.

Damn, Myra! I couldn't have said it better than you did. Bravo, girl!

James thanks for the info on Operation Big Lift. All of the points raised on this thread have considerable weight, the obvious reason being, we are basically discussing the "button pusher's," re the genuine article. The ultimate insult to American's in the 1960's [and this is obviously something cannot be effectively communicated in a book, it almost certainly can only be a "lived" experience] is the fact that when the cornerstones of effective Liberal leadership [JFK, MLK, and RFK] were eliminated, we all were treated to the insulting spectacle of the media condescendingly "explaining" that all of this violence was the product of deranged lone nut's......isolated, failed humans, who sought glory by making the ultimate political statement. "I can kill the most powerful man in America," in the case of Oswald. That the political environment in American culture circa 2007, has relegated those who believe the three assassinations were the result of the "C" word; villified residents of la-la land, while those souls who nobly take, nay embrace, the "official" version of history are "good American's," ostensibly. Shades of George Orwell

The ultimate reality I am afraid, is the perpetuation of a macarbe status-quo, in which there has developed "two versions of history." One for the masses and one for the seekers of truth, who have discovered the same fact that the Jim Garrison's, spooks who have come clean, and Ramsey Clark's of the world have learned. Which is that politics takes place every day not just every four years. The struggle to reveal the truth about the assassination versus those dedicated to being the keepers of the secrets, or perhaps more accurately the keepers of the skeleton's firmly in their respective closets, illustrates the ultimate analogy to the Biblical story of David vs Goliath.......

So as not to end on a fatalistic, bleak summation of the State of the Union of the "JFK saga," I will add that, in relation to the topic thread, the passage of time has seen the dissolution of the "official version of the JFK Assassination." This was illustrated to a degree when E Howard Hunt's last book, floated the hook of - LBJ having the motive and yada yada, yada...to have been the person who was THE button pusher, was almost predictable.....Think about that.......in the teaser for Hunt's book, it was floated in the media that in reality, it was a Democrat!!!

When dealing with profoundly important topics, December 7th, 1941, November 22, 1963, and September 11, 2001 the historical details can take "awhile" to become "in focus."

Let's hope it does not take forty or fifty years to figure out 9-11........

I seek something in the moderately paranoid range(US); if not on House a book with a lot of good stuff on him would be good also. It would be good if the book mentioned something besides the Federal Reserve Bank, although I suspect it will have to be an ingredient, and am far from allergic.

Nathaniel,

There is a new biography (I haven’t read it), Woodrow Wilson's Right Hand : The Life of Colonel Edward M. House, by Godfrey Hodgson. (2006). The one review on Amazon says good starting reference but too short “to do justice to House’s legacy.”

It’s been quite a while since I read it but I thought this valuable: Road to War: America 1914 – 1917, by Walter Millis, 1935.

Forum member Anton Chaitkin’s Treason in America: From Aaron Burr to Averell Harriman has this on House:

(after the collapse of the Maximilian regime in Mexico-rw) Most of the high-ranking Confederates in Mexico drifted back into the United States, where many of them simply reentered the mainstream of American life. In fact there was no accounting done, no sorting out, no “Nuremberg Trials” for the insurrection of 1861, which killed more than a half-million Americans—more than died in both of the World Wars.

A particularly chilling example of the failure of post-Lincoln Americans to appreciate the nature of the Rebellion is the case of Edward House. His father Thomas House was a British merchant who came to the Texas province of Mexico in the 1830s. The elder House did not stick by Sam Houston when Houston fought against Secession; Thomas House made a fortune as a British national, carrying guns from Britain through the Union blockade to Texas. After the Rebellion was defeated Thomas House returned to England and educated his son Edward at Bath. Years later, the young man returned to America to tend his father’s cotton plantations; he despised the United States as an enemy land, retained a fierce loyalty to Great Britain. This was “Colonel” House, who directed the foreign policy and much of the domestic affairs of the United States during the administration of President Woodrow Wilson…the years of the World War and the League of Nations... (pp 258-259)

The following are items from Lloyd Miller’s old A-Albionic book catalog:

British-American Relations, 1917-1918: The Role of Sir William Wiseman by W. B. Fowler, 1969…

Intriguing Establishment account of the intimate relationship between Sir William Wiseman and the notorious Colonel House.

Philip Dru: Administrator--A Story of Tomorrow 1920-1935; by Anonymous, 1912…

"Colonel" Edward Mandell House was eventually revealed as the author of this novel by Yale Professor Seymour's Intimate Papers of Colonel House. Seymour revealed that House would hand the book to influential people with the words, "This might interest you." House (Woodrow Wilson's "Kissinger", founder of the CFR, Federal Reserve System advocate, Income Tax advocate, WWI enthusiast, and Kuhn-Loeb associate) presented in the form of a novel, the actual rationale and program by which the welfare-warfare statism (veiled as socialism as dreamed by Karl Marx) required by the "Imperial Crisis" presented Britain by Germany was to be substituted for traditional American individual liberties and isolationism. We are still living in this novel.

Although I believe the gamut of literature regarding Colonel House has been pretty much explored, there is one other book, that is worth recommending, and that is......

Woodrow Wilson and Colonel House - A Personality Study - Alexander L. George & Juliette George

Dover Publications Inc, 1964 ISBN - 0-486-21144-4

The appeal of this book in my view is that it is a definitive scholarly work, which succeeds in analyzing, not only the personalities and motivations of the two, but in illuminating the realpolitik of a very turbulent situation, since Wilson's "go it alone" approach with regards to working with Congress and the political heavyweights of his day, ultimately destroyed the possibility of the United States being a member of the League of Nations.

In the current epoch the League of Nations, and the United Nations together are viewed through two different prisms, one being a sinister instrument to implement a New Order ultimately doing away with the nation state which has been the paradigm of governance since the Treaty of Vienna, while the other is, arguably the predominating view, which is that progress demands such a body, as a means to eliminate the possibility to what was called Mutually Assured Destruction [MAD].

My only comment regarding these two views is that ultimately humanity finds a way to take an honorable conceptualization and turn it into something obscene, in my worldview the role of Colonel Mandell House bears a striking similarity to Karl Rove, not ideologically, but in the sense that such an unknown commodity can ascend to such lofty heights as being a President's right-hand man, if you will.

If I had the power to create a vast change in the manner in which the world operates, it would be to articulate the hidden, and not so hidden forces that control, the world as we do not know it.

To illustrate my point, I would mention that in the period between the 1700's through the mid twentieth century, whenever a dictatorship, or a tyrant has assumed power, one of the first order's of business was to "round-up the intellectuals." Over the last sixty years in America, there has been speculation that if such a thing were to happen here it would be less overt but achieve the same ends.

I submit that is what is happening in America today, because what few checks and balances in this country

existed, have been eviscerated. My first hint that something of this nature was happening took place after 9-11 when I began reading that several members of the Republican Party were joining the American Civil Liberties Union. The warning signs started years before that, and ironically enough it was my lack of belief in a conspiracy that led me to discount the idea.

Bush's brother-in-law, Alexander "Sandy" B. Ellis, Jr., sure made some interesting friends during his years at Yale, and he was tapped as a Bonesman, too.

It is a pity so very little is known about Ellis, but he was close friends with James Buckley, twins David and John Lindsay, and with John Chafee. John Lindsay met his future wife at the Nancy Bush-Ellis wedding. Best man was Wm. B. Macombers, Jr., same as Tom Devine's best man, 27 years later.

I am wondering now, though, if Nancy Bush and Sandy Ellis's wedding usher's, William Cabell Grayson's father, Admiral Cary Grayson, with his friend, Wilson's second wife, did in fact, stage what amounted to a coup, a result of which was the ousting of Colonel House from President Wilson's inner circle.... Cary Grayson's widow didn't do too bad herself, either....

I've suspected since at least 2001, that you do not get to have a streak in America where from 1981 unitl 2009, for 20 of the 30 years in that period, either father or son holding the office of POTUS or V.P., without having all of your ducks in a row, an enormous sphere of influence, and eyes in the back of your heads, so to speak. The Bush family networked, and the core network seems to be from Yale University, and even more so, Skull and Bones.

There was some talk of Baker as Lansing's' successor. But Baker was unacceptable because his independence in a specific instance had offended certain members of the coterie that was now ruling the country. The nation was astounded when Wilson offered Lansing's post to Bain- bridge Colby, who owed his nomination to the fact that Wilson was convinced of his absolute loyalty to himself. Wilson, or those who ruled the country in Wilson's name, could not brook independence. For that reason House was kept from Wilson, and even Tumulty, for all his faithfulness, lost favor. McAdoo's advice was not asked....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cary_T._Grayson

Admiral Cary Travers Grayson (October 11, 1878 - February 15, 1938) was a surgeon in the United States Navy who served a variety of roles from personal aide to President Woodrow Wilson to chairman of the American Red Cross.

Grayson was born to Dr. John Cooke Grayson (a descendant of American George Mason, one of the American Founding Fathers) and Jennie Thornley Grayson at Salubria, the Grayson family estate, in Culpeper County, Virginia.[1][2][3] He graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a bachelor's degree from the College of William and Mary in 1898.[3][4] He studied for three years at the Medical College of Richmond before leaving to attend the University of the South.[3][4] After a year there, he received his M.D. and as well as his Doctor of Pharmacy.[3][4][5] He interned for a year at Columbia Hospital for Women in Washington, D.C.[6]

After completing his medical studies, he was appointed Acting Assistant Surgeon on July 14, 1903.[3][6] He served at the U.S. Navy Hospital in Washington, D.C., continuing to study at U.S. Navy Medical School (from which he graduated in 1904).[3] He received a second M.D. from the Medical College of Virginia in 1904.[3] His studies complete, for two and a half years he served aboard the USS Maryland while it was deployed overseas.[3][4][6] In 1907, he was assigned to the Navy's Bureau of Medicine and Surgery and appointed Naval surgeon about the Mayflower, the presidential yacht of President Theodore Roosevelt.[3][4][6] He continued in this role for the entire William Howard Taft administration.[3][4][6]

While attending a dinner party in March 1913, he attended to President Woodrow Wilson's injured sister and quickly became a close confidante of the new President.[4][5][6][7] In 1915, after the death of Wilson's first wife, Grayson introduced Wilson to his soon-to-be second wife, Edith Bolling Galt.[3][5][6] Grayson's close personal relationship with Woodrow Wilson led to his commission as a Rear Admiral on August 29, 1916. "This rapid promotion of Dr. Grayson from Passed Assistant Surgeon with the rank of Lieutenant to Medical Director with the rank of Rear Admiral was unprecedented and was due to his position as White House Physician."[8] Grayson resided in the White House, and lived with Wilson while he attended peace talks in Paris in 1919.[6]

Grayson was involved in the conspiracy to hide the severity of Woodrow Wilson's October 1919 stroke from members of the government and from the public. Some historians have strongly criticized Grayson's actions, while others have supported them. "While one might excuse Mrs. Wilson's actions on the grounds of wifely loyalty, Grayson's behavior during these days exceeded the bounds of physician responsibility. Grayson was using the office of the president of the United States as therapy of his patient."[9] More of Grayson's documents were recently donated by his family to the Woodrow Wilson Library which have shed more light on the events that took place.[10]

After Wilson left office in 1921, the Navy assigned Grayson to the U.S. Naval Dispensary, so he could continue to see to Wilson's health.[5]

Before transferring to the Retired List on December 20, 1928, Admiral Grayson received the Navy Cross for exceptionally meritorious service as aide and physician to President Wilson. He was also made Commander of the National Order of the Legion of Honor by the French government. Admiral Grayson was chair of the inaugural committee for Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933 and 1937, and served as chairman of the American Red Cross from 1935 until his death in 1938.[1][6]

[edit] Personal life

Grayson married the former Alice Gertrude Gordon on May 24, 1916, and the couple had three children: James Gordon Grayson; Cary Travers Grayson, Jr.; and William Cabell Grayson.[1][11] The couple lived at Highlands, a large home on Wisconsin Avenue NW
