There had also been some simple rearrangements of sentence structure in that transcript, and a line or two omitted in places. For the sake of authenticity, the corrections have been made. The transcript is now word for word from Mr. Freedman's speech.
The original transcriber had
'tidied up' Mr. Freedman's responses during the Q&A period, omitting
superfluous and repetitious words. For the most part, we've left the tidied up
version as it was, since it didn't change the response, and actually helped to
clarify Mr. Freedman's answers. If the names were changed, he could have been

Benjamin Freedman Speaks
by Benjamin H. Freedman
Introductory Note -- Benjamin H. Freedman was one of the most intriguing and amazing individuals of the 20th century.
Freedman, born in 1890, was a successful Jewish businessman of
Mr. Freedman knew what he was talking about because he had been an insider at the highest levels of Jewish organizations and Jewish machinations to gain power over our nation. Mr. Freedman was personally acquainted with Bernard Baruch, Samuel Untermyer, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Joseph Kennedy, and John F. Kennedy, and many more movers and shakers of our times.
This speech was given
before a patriotic audience in 1961 at the

Ladies and gentlemen, you
are about to hear a very frightening speech. This speech is an
explanation of the plans now being laid to throw the
What I intend to tell you tonight is something that you have never been able to learn from any other source, and what I tell you now concerns not only you, but your children and the survival of this country and Christianity. I'm not here just to dish up a few facts to send up your blood pressure, but I'm here to tell you things that will help you preserve what you consider the most sacred things in the world: the liberty, and the freedom, and the right to live as Christians, where you have a little dignity, and a little right to pursue the things that your conscience tells you are the right things, as Christians.
Now, first of
all, I'd like to tell you that on

And who will these people have supporting them, you
ask. Well, four days after President Kennedy -- or he was then Senator
Kennedy -- made that statement on
only that... they ordered the creation of the Palestine Army, and they are now
drilling maybe a half a million soldiers in that area of the world to lead
these people back to their homeland. With them,
they have as their allies all the nations of what is termed the Bandung Conference Group. That includes the

Now, you say, 'well, that's a very broad statement to make', but let me show what happened while you were -- I don't want to wear that out --- let me show what happened while WE were all asleep. I'm including myself with you. We were all asleep. What happened?
World War I broke out in the summer
of 1914. Nineteen-hundred and fourteen was the year in which World War
One broke out. There are few people here my age who remember that. Now
that war was waged on one side by

that was going on, the Zionists in Germany, who represented the Zionists from
Eastern Europe, went to the British War Cabinet and -- I am going to be brief
because this is a long story, but I have all the documents to prove any
statement that I make if anyone here is curious, or doesn't believe what
I'm saying is at all possible -- the Zionists in London went to the British war
cabinet and they said: “Look here. You can yet win this war. You
don't have to give up. You don't have to accept the negotiated peace

other words, they made this deal: “We will get the
However, they made that promise, in October of 1916. October, nineteen hundred and sixteen. And shortly after that -- I don't know how many here remember it -- the United States, which was almost totally pro-German -- totally pro-German -- because the newspapers here were controlled by Jews, the bankers were Jews, all the media of mass communications in this country were controlled by Jews, and they were pro-German because their people, in the majority of cases came from Germany, and they wanted to see Germany lick the Czar.
The Jews didn't like the Czar, and they didn't want

realized this, they naturally resented it. Up to that time, the Jews had

important in industry and finance as is Bernard Baruch in this country.
You had Mr. Balin, who owned the two big steamship
lines, the North German Lloyd's and the Hamburg-American Lines. You had Mr. Bleichroder, who was the banker for the Hohenzollern
family. You had the Warburgs in

then, after that defeat, if we found out that it was the Chinese in this
country, our Chinese citizens, who all the time we thought they were loyal
citizens working with us, were selling us out to the Soviet Union and that it
was through them that Red China was brought into the war against us. How would
we feel, in the
that's how the Germans felt towards these Jews. "We've been so nice
to them"; and from 1905 on, when the first Communist revolution in
Now, Nahum Sokolow -- all the great leaders, the big names that you read about in connection with Zionism today -- they, in 1919, 1920, '21, '22, and '23, they wrote in all their papers -- and the press was filled with their statements -- that "the feeling against the Jews in Germany is due to the fact that they realized that this great defeat was brought about by our intercession and bringing the United States into the war against them."
The Jews themselves admitted that. It wasn't that the Germans in 1919 discovered that a glass of Jewish blood tasted better than Coca-Cola or Muenschner Beer. There was no religious feeling. There was no sentiment against those people merely on account of their religious belief. It was all political. It was economic. It was anything but religious.
There was a conspiracy between
They were in
excellent shape; everybody treated well. And they were filled with
Communists. Well, a lot of them were Jews, because the Jews happened to be
maybe 98 per cent of the Communists in
the Jews sort of tried to keep the lid on this fact. They didn't want the
world to really understand that they had sold out
So they did take appropriate action against them [against the Jews]. They. . . shall I say, discriminated against them wherever they could? They shunned them. The same as we would the Chinese, or the Negroes, or the Catholics, or anyone in this country who had sold us out to an enemy and brought about our defeat.
after a while, the Jews of the world didn't know what to do, so they called a

anything to people here. . . (You want to ask a question? --- Uh, there

English words, and what they were called in
Now, at that time, when the Communist threat in Germany was quashed, it was quiet, the Jews were working, still trying to get back into their former -- their status -- and the Germans fought them in every way they could, without hurting a hair on anyone's head. The same as one group, the Prohibitionists, fought the people who were interested in liquor, and they didn't fight one another with pistols, they did it every way they could.
that's the way they were fighting the Jews in
Well, in 1933 when Germany refused to surrender, mind you, to the World Conference of Jews in Amsterdam, they broke up and Mr. Untermeyer came back to the United States -- who was the head of the American delegation and the president of the whole conference -- and he went from the steamer to ABC and made a radio broadcast throughout the United States in which he said:
"The Jews of the world

Now in this declaration, which I have here, it was printed on page -- a whole page -- in the New York Times on August 7, 1933, Mr. Samuel Untermyer boldly stated that: “this economic boycott is our means of self-defense. President Roosevelt has advocated its use in the NRA" . [National Recovery Administration] -- which some of you may remember, where everybody was to be boycotted unless they followed the rules laid down by the New Deal, which of course was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court at that time.
Nevertheless, the Jews of the world

the head of any Jew had been hurt in
Now, that. . . naturally, the Germans said, "Why, who are these people to declare a boycott against us and throw all our people out of work, and our industries come to a standstill? Who are they to do that to us?" They naturally resented it. Certainly they painted swastikas on stores owned by Jews.

Now, for anyone to say that --
I don't like to use the word 'anti-Semitism' because it's meaningless,
but it means something to you still, so I'll have to use it -- the only reason
that there was any feeling in Germany against Jews was that they were
responsible: number one, for World War One; number two, for this world-wide
boycott, and number three -- did I say for World War One, they were
responsible? For the boycott -- and also for World War II, because after this
thing got out of hand, it was absolutely necessary for the Jews and

for this country to now be on the verge of a Third
World War, from which we cannot emerge a victor, is something that staggers my
imagination. I know that nuclear bombs are measured in terms of megatons.
A megaton is a term used to describe one million tons of

nuclear war, humanity is finished. And why will it take place? It
will take place because Act
The Jews of the world, the Zionists and their co-religionists everywhere, are determined that they are going to again use the United States to help them permanently retain Palestine as their foothold for their world government. Now, that is just as true as I am standing here, because not alone have I read it, but many here have read it, and it's known all over the world.
what are we going to do? The life you save may be your son's. Your
boys may be on their way to that war tonight; and you you
don't know it any more than you knew that in 1916 in
Who knew it? President Wilson knew it. Colonel House knew it. Other 's knew it. Did I know it? I had a pretty good idea of what was going on: I was liaison to Henry Morgenthau, Sr., in the 1912 campaign when President Wilson was elected, and there was talk around the office there.
I was 'confidential man' to Henry Morgenthau, Sr., who was chairman of the Finance Committee, and I was liaison between him and Rollo Wells, the treasurer. So I sat in these meetings with President Wilson at the head of the table, and all the others, and I heard them drum into President Wilson's brain the graduated income tax and what has become the Federal Reserve, and also indoctrinate him with the Zionist movement.
Justice Brandeis and President Wilson were just as close as the two fingers on this hand, and President Woodrow Wilson was just as incompetent when it came to determining what was going on as a newborn baby. And that's how they got us into World War I, while we all slept.

That is correct. I don't know from what state you come, but in
Now, what are the facts about the Jews?
The Jews -- I call them Jews to you, because they are known as Jews. I don't call them Jews. I refer to them as so-called Jews, because I know what they are. If Jesus was a Jew, there isn't a Jew in the world today, and if those people are Jews, certainly our Lord and Savior was not one of them, and I can prove that.
Now what happened? The eastern European Jews, who form 92 per cent of the world's population of those people who call themselves Jews, were originally Khazars.
were a warlike tribe that lived deep in the heart of
Now, they were phallic worshippers, which is filthy. I don't want to go into the details of that now. It was their religion the way it was the religion of many other Pagans or Barbarians elsewhere in the world.
Now, the [Khazar] king became so disgusted with the degeneracy of his kingdom that he decided to adopt a so-called monotheistic faith -- either Christianity, Islam -- the Moslem faith -- or what is known today as Judaism -- really Talmudism. So, like spinning a top and calling out "eeny, meeny, miney, moe," he picked out so-called Judaism. And that became the state religion.
down to the Talmudic schools of Pumbedita and Sura and brought up thousands of these rabbis with their
teachings, and opened up synagogues and schools in his kingdom of 800,000
people -- 800,000 thousand square miles -- and maybe ten to twenty million
people; and they became what we call Jews. There wasn't one of them that

"Well, you want to certainly help repatriate God's chosen people to their Promised Land, their ancestral homeland, It's your Christian duty. We gave you one of our boys as your Lord and Savior. You now go to church on Sunday, and kneel and you worship a Jew, and we're Jews."
they were pagan Khazars who were converted just the
same as the Irish [were converted]. And it's just as ridiculous to call
them "people of the

Now imagine how silly it was for the Christians. . . for the great Christian countries of the world to say, "We're going to use our power, our prestige to repatriate God's chosen people to their ancestral homeland, their Promised Land."
Now, could there be a bigger lie than that? Could there be a bigger lie than that?
And because they control the newspapers, the magazines, the radio, the television, the book publishing business, they have the ministers in the pulpit, they have the politicians on the soap boxes talking the same language . . . so naturally you'd believe black is white if you heard it often enough. You wouldn't call black black anymore -- you'd start to call black white. And nobody could blame you.
that is one of the great lies. . . that is the foundation of all the misery
that has befallen the world. Because after two wars fought in

Now, I could go on endlessly, and tell you these things to support what I have just asked you to do. But I don't think it's necessary to do that. You're above the average group in intelligence and I don't think it's necessary to impress this any more.
But. . . I want to tell you one more thing. You talk about... "Oh, the Jews. Why the Jews? Christianity. Why, we got Christianity from the Jews and the Jews gave us Jesus, and the Jews gave us our religion". But do you know that on the day of atonement that you think is so sacred to them, that on that day... and I was one of them! This is not hearsay. I'm not here to be a rabble-rouser. I'm here to give you facts.
When, on the Day of Atonement, you walk into a synagogue, the very first prayer that you recite, you stand -- and it's the only prayer for which you stand -- and you repeat three times a short prayer. The Kol Nidre. In that prayer, you enter into an agreement with God Almighty that any oath, vow, or pledge that you may make during the next twelve months -- any oath, vow or pledge that you may take during the next twelve months shall be null and void.
The oath shall not be an oath; the vow shall not be a vow; the pledge shall not be a pledge. They shall have no force and effect, and so forth and so on.
And further than that, the Talmud teaches: "Don't forget -- whenever you take an oath, vow, and pledge -- remember the Kol Nidre prayer that you recited on the Day of Atonement, and that exempts you from fulfilling that".
How much can you depend on their loyalty? You can depend upon their loyalty as much as the Germans depended upon it in 1916.
And we're going to suffer the same
want to say one thing. You ask me. . . well, you think to yourself: "well
how did this fellow get mixed up in this the way he got mixed up in it."
Well, I opened my mouth in 1945, and I took big pages in newspapers and
tried to tell the American people what I'm telling you. And one newspaper
after another refused the advertisement. And when I couldn't find a
newspaper to take them -- I paid cash, not credit -- what happened? My
lawyer told me, "There's an editor over in
So somebody told me the lawyer who introduced me, who was the son of the Dean of the Methodist Bishop, he said: "Well, I think he's a little anti-Semitic. I don't know whether I can get him over here. So he brought him over to my apartment and we hit it off wonderfully, and have since then.
Now, I say this, and I say it without any qualifications. I say it without any reservations. And I say it without any hesitation. . . if it wasn't for the work that Mr. Conley McGinley did with "Common Sense" -- he's been sending out from 1,800,000 to 2,000,000 every year -- if it wasn't for the work he's been doing sending those out for fifteen years now, we would already be a communist country. Nobody has done what he did to light fires. Many of the other active persons in this fight learned all about if for the first time through "Common Sense".
Now, I have been very active in helping him all I could. I'm not as flush as I was. I cannot go on spending the money. . . I'm not going to take up a collection. Don't worry. I see five people getting up to leave. (laughter)
I haven't got the money that I used to spend. I used to print a quarter of a million of them out of my own pocket and send them out. Mr. McGinley, when I first met him, had maybe 5,000 printed and circulated them locally. So I said, "With what you know and what I know, we can really do a good job". So I started printing in outside shops of big newspaper companies, a quarter of a million, and paid for them. Well, there's always a bottom to the barrel. I suppose we've all reached that at times.
I'm not so poor that I can't live without working and that's what worries the Anti-Defamation League. I can just get by without going and asking for a job or getting on the bread line. But Mr. McGinley is working. He's sick and he's going at this stronger than ever. And all I want to say is that they want to close up "Common Sense" more than any other single thing in the whole world, as a death-blow to the fight Christians are making to survive.
So I just
want to tell you this. All they do is circulate
rumors: "Mr. Benjamin H. Freedman is the wealthy backer of 'Common
Sense'." The reason they do that is to discourage the people
How he's managed to survive, I don't know. God alone knows. And he must be in God's care because how he's pulled through his sickness and with his financial troubles, I don't know. But that press is working. . . and every two weeks about a hundred or a hundred-fifty-thousand of "Common Sense" go out with a new message. And if that information could be multiplied. . . if people that now get it could buy ten or twenty five, or fifty, give them around. Plow that field. Sow those seeds, you don't know which will take root, but for God's sake, this is our last chance.
[Freedman then discusses the importance of people forgoing unnecessary purchases to 'buy more stuff', play golf, etc., and use the money to keep "Common Sense" going. He explains that the paper is going in debt; could be closed down and he (Freedman) no longer has the funds, having spent some $2,400,000 in his attempt to bring the information to the American public and elected officials. He then asks for questions from the audience.)
Freedman: All right,
I'll comment on that. This is rather deep, but you all have a very high
degree of intelligence, so I'm going to make an attempt. In the time of
Bible history, there was a geographic area known as
Latin and Greek there is no such letter as 'j', and the first syllable of Judaeus and Judaius starts 'ghu'. Now, when the Bible was written, it was first
written in Greek, Latin, Panantic, Syriac, Aramaic... all those
languages. Never Was the word Jew in any of them because the word didn't
1345, a man by the name of Wycliffe in
was no English word because
Then, between 1345 and the 17th century, when the press came into use, that word passed through so many changes... I have them all here. If you want I can read them to you. I will. That word 'gyu' which was in the Wycliffe Bible became. . . first it was ' gyu ', then ' giu ', then ' iu ' (because the ' i ' in Latin is pronounced like the ' j '. Julius Caesar is ' Iul ' because there is no 'j' in Latin) then ' iuw ', then ' ieuu ', then ' ieuy ', then ' iwe ', then ' iow ', then ' iewe ', all in Bibles as time went on. Then ' ieue ', then ' iue ', then ' ive ', and then ' ivw ', and finally in the 18th century... ' jew '. Jew.
All the corrupt and contracted forms for Judaius,
and Judaeas in Latin. Now, there was no
such thing as 'Jew', and any theologian -- I've lectured in maybe 20 of the
most prominent theological seminaries in this country, and two in
Look at what
Just like 'anti-Semitic'. The Arab is a Semite. And the Christians talk about people who don't like Jews as anti-Semites, and they call all the Arabs anti-Semites. The only Semites in the world are the Arabs. There isn't one Jew who's a Semite. They're all Turkothean Mongoloids. The Eastern european Jews. So, they brainwashed the public, and if you will invite me to meet this reverend who told you these things, I'll convince him and it'll be one step in the right direction. I'll go wherever I have to go to meet him.
Yes, ma'am. Well... I can answer that. First of all, your first premise is wrong. Your first premise that all the Jews are loyal to each other is wrong. Because, the Eastern European Jews outnumber all the rest by so many that they create the impression that they are the Jewish 'race'; that they are the Jewish nation; that they are the Jewish people. . . and the Christians swallow it like a cream puff.
1844 the German rabbis called a conference of rabbis from all over the world
for the purpose of abolishing the Kol Nidre from the Day of Atonement religious ceremony.
The Eastern Europeans said, "What the hell. We should give up Kol Nidre? That gives us our grip on our people. We give them a franchise so they can tell the Christians, 'Go to hell. We'll make any deal you want', but they don't have to carry it out. That gives us our grip on our people". So, they're not so united, and if you knew the feeling that exists. . .
Now, I'll also
show you from an official document by the man responsible for. . . uh, who
baptized this race. Here is a paper that we obtained from the archives of
the Zionist organization in
here he says that all the jews in
same disunity is among the Jews. And I'll show you in this same document
that when they went to
[Question inaudible] Freedman: You know why? Because if they don't, they're decked up. They come around and they tell you how much you must give, and if you don't . . . oh, you're anti-Semitic. Then none of their friends will have anything to do with them, and they start a smear campaign. . . and you have got to give.
what do they do? They tell you it's for 'humanitarian purposes' and they
send maybe $8 billion dollars to
They put a bigger tax on gas or bread or corporation tax. Somebody has to pay the housekeeping expenses for the government. So why do you let these people send their money over there to buy guns to drive people out of their ancient homeland? And you say, "Oh, well. The poor Jews. They have no place to go and they've been persecuted all their lives". They've never been persecuted for their religion. And I wish I had two rows of Rabbis here to challenge me. Never once, in all of history, have they been persecuted for their religion.

killing the money-lenders, the King then said, "I declare myself the heir
of all the money-lenders. If they're killed you have to pay me, because
I'm his sole heir". That made so much trouble, because the King had
to go out and collect the money with an army, so he told the Jews to get out.
There were 15,000 of them, and they had to get out, and they went across

Freedman: Yes, sir. Well, they say most of those things themselves.
It was unnecessary for Benjamin Franklin to say it. Most of those
things they say themselves. But Benjamin Franklin observed, and by hearsay
understood, what was happening in
When Benjamin Franklin referred to them as Jews because that's the
name that they went by, and when the Christians first heard that these people
who were fleeing from
And Mr. Grutz, the
greatest historian amongst the Jews, said that -- and he's probably as good an
authority on that subject as there is. So when Ben Franklin came to
right did they have to take over
There was no need for that. But they thought, "Now is the time", and if you you will look in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the word 'Bolshevism', you'll find the five laws there that Lenin put down for a successful revolution. One of them is, "Wait for the right time, and then give them everything you've got". It would pay you to read that.
You'd also find that Mr. Harold Blacktree, who wrote the article for the Encyclopedia Britannica states that the Jews conceived and created and cultivated the Communist movement. And that their energy made them the spearhead of the movement. Harold Blacktree wrote it and no one knew more about Communism than he. And the Encyclopedia Britannica for 25 years has been printing it.
[Question inaudible] Freedman: Well, I can't advocate that you do anything that's criminal, but I can tell you this. You can start what I call an endless chain. If you can get your friends to write, objectively, here is the statement: Mr. Kennedy's office gave me this himself. Mr. Smith, who succeeded Mr. Kennedy, took over his office -- was in his office -- and gave me this. He delivered this on the 25th, and it says here:
