1910: NICARAGUA. U.S. Marines invade Nicaragua at Corinto and Bluefields “to protect American interests”.
America's main “interest” in Nicaragua is the overthrow of the successor to President Jose Zelaya who had made the outrageous suggestion that American mining and fruit companies operating in Nicaragua should pay taxes and that they should not be allowed to operate as monopolies.
That's pretty crazy stuff for a sovereign nation to try pulling on fine American corporations, so the U.S. government installs its very own puppet dictator, Adolpho Diaz, who will be sure to do just as he is told.
1910: UNITED STATES. In November, Paul Warburg of the Warburg banking family and four other of the world's major bankers meet at a secret hideaway on Jekyll Island off the Georgia coast to plot the creation of a privately-owned central bank to create and issue all money in the United States, effectively giving them control of the U.S. economy.
The bankers travel incognito, pretending to be duck hunters so no one will who they are or what they are up to. But, as we all know, there are no conspiracies in the U.S. of A., except those carried out by them evil Muslims, so this couldn't be possibly be one.
By amazing coincidence, Senator Nelson Aldrich, of the Rockefeller family, the man who who had headed the Senate committee which recommended the creation of a central bank purportedly to prevent a repeat of the Panic of 1907, is also in attendance at the secret but non-conspiratorial meeting.
1910: UNITED STATES. Baltimore City Council passes an ordinance officially designating racially segregated neighborhoods. Dallas, Texas; Greensboro, North Carolina; Louisville, Kentucky; Norfolk, Virginia; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Richmond, Virginia; Roanoke, Virginia and St. Louis, Missouri soon follow. Ain't nothin' like livin' in a free country, is there?
1910: UNITED STATES. The journal Mother Earth is banned from the U.S. mails after Anthony Comstock, self-appointed censor of all that Americans may see and read, complains to the U.S. Post Office about an essay by Emma Goldman entitled The White Slave Traffic. Goldman stirs the political pot by pointing out that rampant prostitution in America is a direct result of the criminally low wages paid to women, leaving many with no other means of survival.
1910: UNITED STATES. A mob invades a courtroom in Dallas and seizes a black man, Allen Brooks, who had been accused of attacking a white girl. The mob puts a noose around Brooks' neck and hurls him from the window of the courthouse, killing him. His body is then hung from a lamp post and some ten thousand people crowd the streets to view the spectacle.
1910-ongoing: UNITED STATES. The quest for the "master" race begun by corn flake tycoon and anti-masturbation crusader J.H. Kellogg gets going in deadly earnest when the leading lights of the American ruling class decide to improve ze breeding stock and weed out "undesirables" in the world's greatest democracy.
The Carnegie family's always-benevolent Carnegie Institution funds the Station for Experimental Evolution at Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island which will play a leading role in the pseudo-science of eugenics. The eugenics lab is, appropriately enough, on the estate of Nazi shysters-to-be John Foster and Allen Dulles. In 1910, the Harriman family funds the Eugenics Record Office which becomes the leading player in the quest for forced sterilization of "undesirables" and for anti-immigration laws. By 1917, fifteen U.S. states will have eugenics laws providing for the forced sterilization of Americans with epilepsy, the mentally ill and those convicted of crimes.
The racist pseudo-science of eugenics is intended to wipe out all human beings except those who conform to a Nordic, northern European, stereotype. The philosophy is enforced by forced sterilization and segregation laws and marriage restrictions, ultimately enacted in twenty seven states. The program of extermination is largely directed at blacks, native Americans, Hispanics, eastern Europeans, Jews, the poor and the handicapped.
American eugenecists identify "defective" family trees and plan to subject them to lifelong segregation and sterilization programs, destroying the reproductive capability of the "unfit"; those deemed weak, inferior and undesirable by the ruling class.
Ultimately, some sixty thousand Americans are coercively sterilized, thousands of marriages are prevented on racial grounds and thousands of Americans are forcibly segregated into "colonies".
Massive financing by the tax-exempt "philanthropies" of the U.S. ruling class, especially the Carnegie Institution, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Harriman railroad fortune makes eugenics a very serious large-scale threat to human liberty. The robber barons are in league with America's leading scientists from Harvard, Yale and Princeton, who fake and twist data in order to serve the racist aims of the ruling class.
The Cold Springs complex develops and maintains records on millions of ordinary Americans as the movement plots the extinction of families, bloodlines and entire races. Cold Spring Harbor becomes the center of a massive lobbying effort directed at legislators and social service agencies to promote the eugenics agenda. The Harrimans pay local charities, such as the New York Bureau of Industries and Immigration, to seek out Jewish and other immigrants and subject them to deportation, confinement and/or sterilization.
Adolf Hitler studies American eugenics laws and the rationalizations behind them and decides to legitimize his own innate race hatred and anti-Semitism by wrapping it in the pseudo-scientific façade of eugenics. The Rockefeller Foundation helps found and fund the German eugenics program, and even funds the program which ultimately will send Dr. Josef Mengele into Auschwitz which, along with about forty other concentration camps, is a joint venture of the Rockefellers' Standard Oil and the Nazi chemical combine IG Farben.
In the 1920s, Carnegie Institution eugenic scientists develop deep personal and professional relationships with German eugenicists. When Hitler writes Mein Kampf, he frequently quotes American eugenics ideology and displays a thorough understanding of American eugenics and its jargon.
The racial laws which Hitler ultimately introduces in Germany are based directly on American eugenics legislation. The only significant difference in Hitler's quest for a "master" race is to change the American term "Nordic" to "Germanic" or "Aryan." Race science, racial purity and racial dominance as promoted by the American ruling class become the driving force behind Hitler's Nazism.
By 1926, Rockefeller has provided some $410,000, an enormous fortune at the time, to hundreds of German eugenics researchers. In May 1926, Rockefeller gives $250,000 to the German Psychiatric Institute of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute. Among its leading psychiatrists is Ernst Rudin, who becomes director of the Institute and eventually an architect of Hitler's systematic medical repression of "inferior" races.
Another in the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute's complex of eugenics institutions is the Institute for Brain Research. A grant of $317,000 from the Rockefellers allows the Institute to construct a major building and take the lead in German "race biology". The grant is only the first of many to be given to the racist brain institute by the Rockefeller Foundation.
The brain institute, led by Rudin, becomes a prime force in the murderous experimentation and "research" conducted on Jews, Gypsies and other "subhumans" by the Nazis. Beginning in 1940, thousands of Germans taken from old age homes, mental institutions and other facilities are systematically gassed. In all, between 50,000 and 100,000 are killed.
A very special recipient of Rockefeller money is the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Anthropology, Human Heredity and Eugenics in Berlin. For decades, American eugenicists had sought sets of twins in order to advance their research into heredity. With Nazi social control and Rockefeller money, the Institute was able to undertake such research at a previously unprecedented level. At the time of Rockefeller's gift, Otmar Freiherr von Verschuer, revered in American eugenics circles, functioned as head of the Institute for Anthropology, Human Heredity and Eugenics.
With the Rockefeller money, research on twins in the Third Reich exploded, driven by government decrees making all twins in the Reich eligible for the research program. On May 30, 1943, Verschuer's long-time assistant, Josef Mengele, will arrive at Auschwitz and begin taking twins from the railcars arriving at the camp and performing horrific experiments on them, writing up the reports and sending the paperwork back to Verschuer for evaluation.
1910-ongoing: UNITED STATES. Andrew Carnegie makes an investment of ten million dollars and creates the imaginatively-named Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. With Carnegie leading the way, America will soon be littered with the tax-free foundations of the ultra-wealthy, with those who profit from war leading the pack. Inside these little legal fictions,
millions, hundreds of millions and billions of dollars multiply completely tax free with the proceeds being used to lobby and propagandize for the interests of the kind hearted philanthropists who created them.
One of the first jobs of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace will be, with no hint of irony, to propagandize for the U.S. to enter the First World War. When Woodrow “Making The World Safe For Hypocrisy” Wilson decides that the war really isn’t really such a bad thing after all and takes the U.S. into it, the Carnegie Endowment telegraphs the president and encourages him to "see that the war (does) not end too quickly."
Andrew Carnegie’s profits from the sale of armor plate and other goodies skyrocket. Like the other major “philanthropies” of the ruling class, the Carnegie Endowment will create cozy little relationships with American presidents and officials throughout the federal government and the mass media. Fittingly, the first president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is none other than Elihu Root, one of the twentieth century's first major war criminals.
Shyster for some of the world’s most ruthless robber barons, as U.S. Secretary of War from 1899 to 1904 Root was responsible for numerous massacres, wholesale torture and an almost unending litany of war crimes against the people of the Philippines. Carnegie could scarcely have found a more fitting first president for his "peace" foundation.
1911: HONDURAS. U.S. naval detachments invade Honduras to “protect American interests”. The American interests are, in fact, those of American fruit baron, Sam Zemurray, later of the United Fruit (Chiquita Banana) Company. The U.S. engineers the overthrow of the legitimate, liberal government of Miguel Davila and installs Manuel Bonilla, a puppet dictator who is far more accommodating to the requirements of American banana companies.
The coup is orchestrated by an American mercenary, Lee Christmas, who is then installed as commander-in-chief of the Honduran army by the grateful Bonilla dictatorship. One of Bonilla's first acts is to give Zemurray vast tracts of stolen peasants’ land and to waive all taxes for a period of twenty five years.
1911: UNITED STATES. The Supreme Court makes the startling finding that the Rockefellers' Standard Oil grew to monopolize the oil industry in the U.S. by using illegal practices and orders it to be broken up into thirty four new companies. These include Continental Oil (Conoco), Standard of Indiana (Amoco), Standard of California (Chevron), Standard of New Jersey (Esso/Exxon), Standard of New York (Mobil) and Standard of Ohio (Sohio). They are all owned through an intricate legal maze which always leads back to John D. Rockefeller and the other major owners of Standard Oil.
Of course, the whole thing is just a load of bullshit and Standard Oil, in various disguises will continue to restrict competion by swallowing up competitors until the present day.

1911: DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. Following the execution of the U.S. puppet dictator for his collusion with the U.S. and the installation of a new, nationalist government, the United States invades the Dominican Republic and overthrows the new moderate Dominican government and installs yet another U.S. puppet dictatorship which will remain in power for decades.
1911: UNITED STATES. The U.S. Supreme Court orders the American Federation of Labor to cease promoting a boycott against the Bucks Stove and Range Company. Can't be havin' no consumer activism in the land of the free.
1911: CUBA. The U.S. raises the USS Maine which had conveniently "blown up" and sunk in Havana Harbor in 1898, serving as the far-fetched pretext for the long-planned U.S. invasions of Cuba, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Philippines. The Chinese scrap metal business not yet being in full operation, the hulk of the Maine is towed to deep water and sunk.
1911: UNITED STATES. A hundred and forty seven people, mainly women and young girls, are killed in New York City when a sweatshop occupying the top three floors of a ten storey building, the Triangle Shirtwaist Company, catches fire. Fifty of the deaths occurred when the victims jumped from the burning building to escape the fire.
1911-41: CHINA. U.S. forces invade and occupy parts of China to “protect American interests”. Five thousand U.S. troops and a fleet of forty four vessels are used to force China to open its markets to American corporations, pre-eminent among them the Rockefeller's Standard Oil (Exxon-Mobil).
1912: HONDURAS. U.S. troops invade Honduras to “protect American interests”.
1912: PANAMA. Fully armed U.S. troops “supervise” an election outside of the occupied Canal Zone to ensure that the election comes out right.
1912: CUBA. The U.S. puppet dictatorship of Cuba systematically represses, harasses and murders black Cubans and establishes concentration camps into which they are forced. When black people demonstrate against their repression in Oriente, thousands (estimates vary from two thousand to six thousand) are slaughtered by the U.S.-installed and maintained dictatorship.
1912: UNITED STATES. Textile workers go out on strike in Lawrence, Massachusetts when the Lawrence mills cut their wages which are already at starvation level. The working conditions in the mills are so horrific that thirty six percent of the workers die by the age of twenty five. Union organizers are jailed and picketers are murdered by company thugs. Among the supporters of the strikers is Helen Keller who tours the northern U.S. raising money for the workers.
1912: CUBA. U.S. troops invade Cuba to “protect American interests” by crushing a rebellion by blacks in Pinar del Rio against the repressive white racist dictatorship installed and maintained by the U.S.
1912: NICARAGUA. The U.S. bombards, assaults and then occupies the city of Coyotepe.
1912-1917: UNITED STATES. Joseph Kennedy's father gets him a job as a state bank examiner and Kennedy immediately launches his shady career using inside information gained in his position to enrich himself.
1912: MEXICO. The United States invades Mexico at Claris Estero.
1912: UNITED STATES. The City of San Diego decides that the right of freedom of assembly doesn't apply to underpaid workers and bans street meetings. Forty one members of the Industrial Workers of the World are arrested. When the IWW holds a protest meeting in front of the San Diego City Jail, the protestors are attacked with fire hoses.
1912-1933: NICARAGUA. U.S. forces invade and occupy Nicaragua for twenty two years in order to maintain in power the previously-installed U.S. puppet Diaz dictatorship against massive popular opposition. Claiming to be “promoting peace and government stability” in Nicaragua, the U.S. stage-manages the usual fantasy "elections" in which only 4,000 of 572,000 people are permitted to vote for the one and only candidate, the U.S. puppet Diaz.
In return for being allowed to steal a fortune for himself, his family and cronies, Diaz sells out the country to U.S. banks, especially the notorious Brown Brothers Bank, which controls Nicaraguan shipping, customs collection and the central bank.
1912-1968: UNITED STATES. In the fantasyland version of American history we all know so well, Helen Keller is little more than a brave and sweet natured blind lady whose sole purpose in life seems to have been to provide an inspirational fairytale for American children.
Like so many figures in the web of lies and deception which constitute American "history", Keller's real importance and the real focus of her life has been, and still is being, systematically suppressed and replaced with an appropriately sanitized and highly deceptive version.
Recognizing that poverty, suffering, malnutrition, ill health and early death were the lot of the majority in America while the ruling class lived lives of almost unimaginable luxury at their expense and through their labor, Keller was an outspoken socialist, an opponent of rule by the robber barons, a strong proponent of women's rights and a powerful anti-war voice. A staunch advocate for the blind and the deaf, Keller maintained that much of the blindness and deafness in early twentieth century America was caused by horrifically unsafe working conditions.
Keller toured slum tenements, speaking out against the disgusting conditions in which so many Americans lived and many still do. She drew attention to the exploitation of young children as cheap labor for the ruling class. "Why," she wrote in 1912, "In this land of great wealth is there great poverty? Why do children toil in the mills while thousands of men cannot get work, why do women who do nothing have thousands of dollars a year to spend?"
As with Emma Goldman, repeated attempts were made to silence Keller for pointing out the obvious. As she became more outspoken, her publishing opportunities became ever more limited. When John D. Rockefeller's guards shot thirteen people and burned eleven children and two women alive in the Ludlow mine massacare in Colorado in 1914, newspapers refused to carry Keller's condemnation of Rockefeller. She then spoke out publicly against the murdering old bastard.
"I have followed, step by step, the developments in Colorado, where women and children have been ruthlessly slaughtered. Mr. Rockefeller is a monster of capitalism. He gives charity in the same breath he permits the helpless workmen, their wives and children to be shot down," she said.
But, Americans of the day weren't supposed to hear or read such things and Americans of today are not supposed to know that Keller ever said such things.
