Co-host: Roberto Chavez and Jon the Intern.


Mondays on Gashouse Live is our History Audit segment. We take a look back at our country's history and see what was left out of our textbooks in school. All wars are bankers' wars. Here's the notes:



What We're Told:
        • In 1919, after almost a century of agitation, the 18th Amendment to the Constitution was enacted, prohibiting the manufacture, sale, or transportation of alcoholic beverages. Intended to eliminate the saloon and the drunkard from American society, 

  • The anti-Saloon League was formed in 1893 and eventually became a powerful political force in passing a national ban on alcoholic beverages. Women were strongly behind the temperance movement, for alcohol was seen as the destroyer of families and marriages. Men would often spend their money on alcohol, leaving women with no money to provide for their children. Factory owners also supported temperance as well because of the new work habits that were required of industrial workers - early mornings and long nights. 
  • Americans in 1920 embarked on a noble experiment to force everyone to give up drinking. Alas, despite its nobility, this experiment was too naive to work. It soon became clear that people weren't giving up drinking. Worse, it also became clear that Prohibition fueled mobsters who grew rich supplying illegal booze. So, recognizing the futility of Prohibition, Americans repealed it in 1934.
    • Organized crime flourished
    • many deaths and injuries from home-made alcohol
    • Because of Prohibition, speakeasy business boomed. Out of this Jazz became huge.
  • Prior to the creation in 1913 of the national income tax, about a third of Uncle Sam's annual revenue came from liquor taxes. (The bulk of Uncle Sam's revenues came from customs duties.) Not so after 1913. Especially after the income tax surprised politicians during World War I with its incredible ability to rake in tax revenue, the importance of liquor taxation fell precipitously.
  • From 1930 to 1931, income-tax revenues fell by 15 percent.

    In 1932 they fell another 37 percent; 1932 income-tax revenues were 46 percent lower than just two years earlier. And by 1933 they were fully 60 percent lower than in 1930.

    With no end of the Depression in sight, Washington got anxious for a substitute source of revenue.

Roaring 20's

     What we're told: 
        • The distress of agriculture aside, the Twenties brought the best life ever to most Americans. It was the decade in which the ordinary family purchased its first automobile, obtained refrigerators and vacuum cleaners, listened to the radio for entertainment, and went regularly to motion pictures. Prosperity was real and broadly distributed. The Republicans profited politically, as a result, by claiming credit for it.
        • African-American culture flowered. Between 1910 and 1930, huge numbers of African Americans moved from the South to the North in search of jobs and personal freedom. Most settled in urban areas, especially New York City's Harlem, Detroit, and Chicago. In 1910 W.E.B. Du Bois and other intellectuals had founded the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), which helped African Americans gain a national voice that would grow in importance with the passing years.

  • The 1920s marked a decade of increasing conveniences that were made available to the middle class. By and large Americans as a whole were weary of war and looking for a way to put the horrors of the last few years behind them. New products made chores around the home easier and resulted in increased leisure time. Products that had once been too expensive were suddenly affordable due to new forms of financing that made it possible for families to spend beyond more existing means. New forms of advertising resulted in the sale of increased goods through the capitalization of consumer hopes and dreams.
    • Generous lines of credit were offered by department stores for families who were not able to pay upfront but who could demonstrate their ability to pay in the future. Installment plans were also offered to buyers who were not able to pay upfront. More than half of the automobiles in the nation were sold on credit by the end of the 1920s. As a result, consumer debt more than doubled during the decade 
    • Television, Radio, affordable cars, washing machines, refrigerators all came out of this era
  • KKK resurged bigger, more powerful and more well organized than ever
    • The appeal of the Klan spread to the North and West, and at its peak in the mid-1920s achieved a total membership of four million or more. Members served in state legislatures and Congress, and were elected to the governorship in several states. Indiana, Oklahoma, Texas and Oregon saw significantKlan influence.
    • African Americans moved north to work in the factories and live in the cities. migrants were forced to deal with poor working conditions and competition for living space, as well as widespread racism and prejudice.
  • Farmers suffered
    • WWI forced farmers to expand greatly, buy new equipment etc.
      Despite agricultural overproduction and successive attempts in Congress to provide relief, the agricultural economy of the 1920s experienced an ongoing depression. Large surpluses were accompanied by falling prices at a time when American farmers were burdened by heavy debt. Between 1920 and 1932, one in four farms was sold to meet financial obligations and many farmers migrated to urban areas. With one-fifth of the American population making their living on the land, rural poverty was widespread. So, not everybody was able to participate fully in the emergent consumer economy in American. Apart from white farmers, African American and immigrants found this decade tough.

      The situation was made worse by the policy of the US government. The Fordney-McCumber tariffs meant foreign exports to the USA were very expensive. If Americans did not buy foreign goods, foreigners would earn less and therefore have less money to spend on US foodstuffs. The result was a severe agricultural depression. During the 1920s more than 600,000 farmers went bankrupt.

  • By the middle of the decade, the economy had once again become sluggish as the Reserve banks relaxed requirements for credit and more than $500 million was created in new money. Loans totaling more than $4 billion were made available to the American public. The hope was that such measures would stimulate the economy; however, the opposite occurred as more and more consumers took on an increasing amount of debt and the price of stocks and real estate began to skyrocket. In 1926, Coolidge supported the Revenue Act, which reduced taxes on individuals with higher incomes but offered little relief to middle-income families (Chris Butler, 2007).
  • Hoover found it increasingly difficult to gain control of a rapidly worsening economic situation. As a result of the panic of stockholders selling their stocks too rapidly for the system to be able to compensate, the stock market fell in the fall of 1929. Stocks were no longer traded at face value but were instead sold at whatever price they would bring (PBS, n.d.).
Great Depression

What We're Told:
        • In October 1929 the booming stock market crashed, wiping out many investors. The collapse did not in itself cause the Great Depression, although it reflected excessively easy credit policies that had allowed the market to get out of hand. It also aggravated fragile economies in Europe that had relied heavily on American loans. Over the next three years, an initial American recession became part of a worldwide depression. Business houses closed their doors, factories shut down, banks failed with the loss of depositors' savings. Farm income fell some 50 percent. By November 1932, approximately one of every five American workers was unemployed.
  • “in the two years leading up to the crash, the bank steadily raised interest rates, tightening the money supply, which triggered the crash on Wall Street.”
  • “The money supply dropped 30 percent from 1928 to 1931.”
  • Throughout the 1930s thousands upon thousands of banks failed as a direct result of the Great Depression. At the time deposits in banks were uninsured and when a bank failed, customers lost their savings and had no recourse available to them. Banks that were able to survive suddenly became increasingly wary and were unwilling to give out new loans; further exacerbating an already difficult situation (Bierman, 2010)
  • As the unemployment rate rose and the nation’s economy grew worse, everyone stopped making purchases. This, in turn, led to further reductions within the workforce. Consumers were suddenly unable to pay for the items they had previously purchased on credit and installment plans, leading to massive amounts of repossessions. The unemployment rate rose to more than 25% (Smiley, 2010).
  • The New Deal is widely perceived to have ended the Great Depression but it actually made the economic situation worse. The series of economic packages implemented between in the 1930s hampered economic growth and prolonged the Great Depression. Roosevelt imposed excise taxes, harmful regulations on businesses, increased the top tax rate to 79 percent, doubled government spending between 1932 and 1940, and artificially raised wages and prices.

    In 1931, a year before FDR was elected president, the unemployment rate was an unprecedented 16.3 percent. By 1939, nearly two terms into the Roosevelt administration, the unemployment rate had risen to 17.2 percent. The New Deal clearly didn’t lower unemployment like most of us were taught.

Meanwhile in Europe...

  • Bolshevik revolution overthrew the czar, and the Soviet Union was formed
    • they started in Germany after WWI, much in the same way Hitler was able to rise out of the desperation in Germany
    • German forces were able to stop the "red revolution" in Germany, but not in Russia
      • Hitler witnessed this uprising, as did many of the founding Nazis 
    • After hundreds of years of monarch rule, the gov't was overthrown and communism was put in place

  • Remember the world put the entire cost of WWI onto Germany. They were crippled financially, and their country was in ruins. 
    • Reparation payments would have lasted until 1988
  • Large chunks of their land were taken and given to Poland, Denmark and France
  • Famine and unemployment took over the entire country and the people were desperate
  • When the Weimar Republic collapsed economically, it opened the door for the National Socialists to take power.
    • The Nazis (short for National Socialists) promised to stop reparation payments, to give all Germans jobs and food, and to make them proud to be German again. And they blamed Jews for most of Germany's problems.
    •  Their first financial move was to issue their own state currency which was not borrowed from private central bankers. Freed from having to pay interest on the money in circulation, Germany blossomed and quickly began to rebuild its industry. The media called it "The German Miracle". TIME magazine lionized Hitler for the amazing improvement in life for the German people and the explosion of German industry, and even named him TIME Magazine's Man Of The Year in 1938.
  • The inherited policies included a large public works programs supported by deficit spending – such as the construction of the Autobahnnetwork – to stimulate the economy and reduce unemployment.[25] There was major reduction in unemployment over the following years, while price controls prevented the recurrence of inflation.
  • Despite the Treaty of Versailles, Hitler started to build up the military in fear of the Bolsheviks
  • Then, on Sept. 1, 1939, Germany launched a surprise attack on Poland and conquered it so quickly that the term blitzkrieg, or "lightning war," was coined. On September 3, after Germany ignored their demands to withdraw, Britain and France declared war. World War II had begun

February 17, 2015 09:02 AM PST
It is important to understand what was happening before WWI, the lead up:
  • After the civil war, the US had a long period of rapid growth
    • We built up our own wealth as a nation, independent of international bankers through our own labor force and the industrial revolution
  • There were 4 dynasties in Europe at the time
  • Everyone was on a mission to colonize the globe. Britain and France were quickly claiming parts of Africa and the Middle East.
    • From 1880-1900 it was a mad grab for new colonies around the world
    • This was imperialism, and where you will find the international bankers
    • "The sun never sets on Britain" popular saying because they had control over so many regions across the world
    • By 1900, European powers owned most of Asia and Africa, and had colonies on every other continent. It came to a head when a gain of one imperial power meant a loss from another 
  • Germany wanted to show its place in the world as a super power
    • Imperialism has a dependency on this colonial growth, and creates competition among the empires
    • UK and France wanted this squashed, they did not want to share their power
  • This is when nationalism started to grow. Before it was understood that God picked the people's rulers. As money and wealth started to grow in the cities, democracy became a popular idea. Public schools started pushing this nationalist sentiment.
    • Worked in 2 ways: 1. Grew hostility against other nations, 2. rallied people for war
    • This nationalism first met head on between Germany and France at the Franco-Prussian War in 1870, not long before WWI. France was humiliated by Germany, and wanted revernge
    • nationalism would now take a yearning for liberty and turn it into a justification for war
    • small wars were coming up throughout the Austrio-Hungarian and Ottoman empires. Russia fanned these flames hoping to expand their region as well
    • This same nationalist push (similar to the one we were fed after 9/11 by the way) was used by gov'ts of all nations to get the people ready for war
What we were taught: World War One started between Austria-Hungary and Serbia with the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand. 

  • This started a war between Austria-Hungary and Serbia
    • Russia sided with their friends in Serbia
    • Everyone fought with everyone in order to gain more land, more power. Everyone lost this war
  • Although the war started between Austria-Hungary and Serbia , it quickly shifted to focus on Germany, whose industrial capacity was seen as an economic threat to Great Britain, who saw the decline of the British Pound as a result of too much emphasis on financial activity to the neglect of agriculture, industrial development, and infrastructure (not unlike the present day United States). 
  • US didnt enter this 4 year war until the 3rd year. "The reason was the war to end all wars"
    • While we didnt go deeply in debt the way all of Europe did, we did lose all that economic power we built up since the civil war
  • SIDE NOTE: During WWI Britain; then a global power, promised to recognize a United Arab State (1915/16 Hussein-McMahon Correspondence) if they revolt against the Ottoman Empire. Yet Britain had different plans; a 1916 Sykes-Picot Agreement to divide the Middle East between Britain and France, and a 1917 Balfour Declaration promising Arab Palestine to the Zionist Organization. 
  • So, in the media of the day, Germany was portrayed as the prime opponent of World War One, and not just defeated, but its industrial base flattened. 
  • Following the Treaty of Versailles, Germany was ordered to pay the war costs of all the participating nations, even though Germany had not actually started the war. This amounted to three times the value of all of Germany itself. Germany's private central bank, to whom Germany had gone deeply into debt to pay the costs of the war, broke free of government control, and massive inflation followed (mostly triggered by currency speculators) , permanently trapping the German people in endless debt
  • When the Weimar Republic collapsed economically, it opened the door for the National Socialists to take power. Their first financial move was to issue their own state currency which was not borrowed from private central bankers. Freed from having to pay interest on the money in circulation, Germany blossomed and quickly began to rebuild its industry. The media called it "The German Miracle". TIME magazine lionized Hitler for the amazing improvement in life for the German people and the explosion of German industry, and even named him TIME Magazine's Man Of The Year in 1938.
  • Once again, Germany's industrial output became a threat to Great Britain.

    "Should Germany merchandise (do business) again in the next 50 years we have led this war (WW1) in vain." - Winston Churchill in The Times (1919) 

    "We will force this war upon Hitler, if he wants it or not." - Winston Churchill (1936 broadcast

    "Germany becomes too powerful. We have to crush it." - Winston Churchill (November 1936 speaking to US - General Robert E. Wood) 

    "This war is an English war and its goal is the destruction of Germany." - Winston Churchill (- Autumn 1939 broadcast)


    Germany's state-issued value based currency was also a direct threat to the wealth and power of the private central banks, and as early as 1933 they started to organize a global boycott against Germany to strangle this upstart ruler who thought he could break free of private central bankers!

Smedley Butler
  • As a side note, we need to step back before WW2 and recall Marine Major General Smedley Butler. In 1933, Wall Street bankers and financiers had bankrolled the successful coups by both Hitler and Mussolini. Brown Brothers Harriman in New York was financing Hitler right up to the day war was declared with Germany. And they decided that a fascist dictatorship in the United States based on the one on Italy would be far better for their business interests than Roosevelt's "New Deal" which threatened massive wealth re-distribution to recapitalize the working and middle class of America. So the Wall Street tycoons recruited General Butler to lead the overthrow of the US Government and install a "Secretary of General Affairs" who would be answerable to Wall Street and not the people, would crush social unrest and shut down all labor unions. 
  • General Butler pretended to go along with the scheme but then exposed the plot to Congress. Congress, then as now in the pocket of the Wall Street bankers, refused to act. When Roosevelt learned of the planned coup he demanded the arrest of the plotters, but the plotters simply reminded Roosevelt that if any one of them were sent to prison, their friends on Wall Street would deliberatly collapse the still-fragile economy and blame Roosevelt for it. 
  • Roosevelt was thus unable to act until the start of WW2, at which time he prosecuted many of the plotters under the Trading With The Enemy act. The Congressional minutes into the coup were finally declassified in 1967, but rumors of the attempted coup became the inspiration for the movie, "Seven Days in May" but with the true financial villains erased from the script.
