Smedley Butler, a Marine against the NWO

Today is the 233rd birthday of the United States Marine Corps, an organization I was a part of from 1977 to 1984.

I was a 6112/6122, which in civilian speak is a helicopter/jet engine mechanic. Also I was an aircrewman for two years.

So to Marines past and present, Happy Birthday!

You may ask, “Why do you rant against the US government, don’t you believe in America, right or wrong?”

Aren’t all military vets required to think that, especially Marine veterans?

The short answer to the question is “NO!”

One of my personal heroes, a Marine veteran by the name of Smedley Butler, served the US Marines for many, many years, ending with the rank of Major General and was one of the most decorated Marines in the history of the Corps.

But it was in his post-Corps career that he made one of his most heroic stands. In his book, ‘War is a Racket‘, he exposes the nascent military-industrial-complex of his day for what it is.

A criminal organization:

War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small ‘inside’ group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.” ( link )

The book wasn’t the only expose Butler did of the NWO, oh no. In 1934 Butler informed the US Congress that wealthy industrialists ( Prescott Bu$hco, anyone? ) were planning a military coup against President Franklin Roosevelt:

During the McCormack-Dickstein Committee hearings, Butler testified that through MacGuire and Bill Doyle, who was then the department commander of the American Legion in Massachusetts,[30] the conspirators attempted to recruit him to lead a coup, promising him an army of 500,000 men for a march on Washington, D.C., $30 million in financial backing,[31] and generous media spin control

[…]Despite Butler’s support for Roosevelt in the election,[3] and his reputation as a strong critic of capitalism,[citation needed] Butler said the plotters felt his good reputation and popularity were vital in attracting support amongst the general public, and saw him as easier to manipulate than others. ( read abstract here )

So was Butler a “traitor” against the industrialists who plotted to overthrow the government and put in a fascist regime?

Or was he a hero, even though he defended a President many claim today was part of the same NWO?

You see, the tag-team of ‘good cop, bad cop’ has been playing out for a century, as far as the US is concerned that is.

I don’t believe Butler was part of or aware of the NWO, other than the obvious MIC criminals he was ratting out.

And he was astute enough to recognise there was more happening behind the scenes than most Americans could even imagine at the time.

We need more heroes like that today.

Semper Fi!

  1. Well, happy ‘birthday’, you old bugger! And salutations to all of you jarheaded types out there, anti-NWO or otherwise.

    I, myself, was a member of our local militia from 1975 – 1977. Not as illustrious an Alma mater as yours, but it helped steer an otherwise dead-end kid back onto the straight and narrow… for the most part. I was employed as a crewman… a recce vehicle driver, primarily, though I think I did more infantry support work than anything else. I was the youngest member of the CAF at enlistment.

    Tomorrow is our Remembrance Day, and so is a holiday, but I generally observe it in the proper way. As much as I hate war and elitists, I still respect those that (though misguided) sign up, thinking that they’re making a difference. I was like that, once.

    It’s your day, Marine… Semper Fi!

  2. Yeah, but I didn’t get the day off dammit!

    And I ain’t getting tomorrow off either, because the company I work for doesn’t have Veteran’s Day as a paid holiday!

    I agree with Butler, it’s a f*cking racket! 👿

    But thanks for the birthday wishes anyways HW!

    Semper Fi.

  3. Semper Fi dad2059…! : )

    I concur that General Butler was a true hero and had these mattoids figured out from the getgo. He played his cards right and let them reveal their plans before he dropped a dime on them.

    Of course the investigation was an impotent “whitewash” and immediately if not sooner swept under the rug.

    Here’s a link to my reply to Maggie Van Ostrand a nationally syndicated columnist who posts on Capitol Hill Blue concerning the ongoing conspiracy to seize the reins of power in the U.S.

    My research indicates a “mission accomplished” by CIA insiders; ie., H.W. Bush & Co. who have done so starting with the in our face Kennedy assassination.

    I urge readers to take the time to read my reply to Maggie concerning this issue of corporatist oligarchs compromising our political structure.

    Thank the gods that these wealthy transgenerational mattoids made a bad call in trusting General Butler to facilitate their coup. : |

  4. Thanks Nemo and yes, Butler more or less let them reveal themselves.

    And it all got swept into the dustbin of history.

    I can’t consider myself a researcher in the true sense, because I can’t dedicate to it full-time.

    But when I have time to do it, I dive into the fray as best I can.

    The wife don’t like it though, she thinks it contributes to my epilepsy.

  5. …zzzZZZ

    I snoozed through birthday Dad. Anyways, happy belated, and I hope your cake didn’t have all of the candles on it as it would attract firemen like Arthur Scheuerman, and you would have his long winded copy paste comments on here trying to describe how the cake fell.

    I had my b’day carrot cake on Nov 4, and it was uneventful as I was spared all of the candles but 7, one for every decade.

    Also a salute to you and the Highwayman from the North from a f*@ing reservist, Thats what all the regulars called me when I went to boot camp cause I had only 2 weeks instead of five…(:

    Smedley was somewhat like the ex generals of today ,a large percentage, of which, became vocal in opposing the policies of the corporate government. Same old racket, but with more media control, and with leadership that resembles something out of an old Superman comic book, has put debts on the sheeple that haven’t been experienced since those experienced by the Chinese after the Boxer rebellion…G:

  6. Thanks Geez, and Happy 70th to you!

    Wasn’t a good day for the sheeple where I work yesterday, 125 of them got send down the road, courtesy of the Bu$hco economy.

    I don’t know how I dodged that bullet, but it must’ve been that good ol’ USMC training! 😆

  7. Just a quicknote from ‘on the road’ :
    I pilfered that Smedley-Butler piece from Blue Girl Red State (not her new They Gave Us aRepublic ) for my list of special pieces on my Links page.
    I figured with our people playing on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border it was time for a retrospective about how long this garbage has been going on,especially since the Brits should damn well know better.
    Lest We Forget. Khyber Pass

  8. Smedley D. Butler was an American hero not a traitor. He refused to participate in the so called “Businessmen Plot” against President Roosevelt because he didn’t believe in dictatorship of any kind.
