The Chicago Tribune 1934 cartoon is making the blogosphere rounds once again, and although I posted it before, it deserves a second look, especially the placard being held by a man in the lower left corner listing FDR’s plan of action.

The cartoon depicts the visible signs of manipulation by the financial elite that runs America, which was in full control of the country during the Depression, for decades before that and for the decades leading up to the present.


 

Cartoon Breakdown:

Members of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s administration are shoveling money out of a wagon; the billboard on the side reads, “Depleting the resources of the soundest government in the world.”

The man in the mortarboard flogging the Democratic donkey is Rexford G. Tugwell, the leading academaniac of FDR’s “Brain Trust.”  The Brain Trust was supposed to come up with new ideas to help America.

The two mortarboard-wearing kids in the wagon represent recent Ivy League college graduates hired to staff the New Deal. The cartoonist from the conservative Chicago Tribune, Mr. Orr, is calling them socialist “pinkos” (term that wasn’t then in use, “pinkies’ is what Orr called them). […]

The most prominently featured man shoveling money off the wagon is Secretary of Agriculture Henry Wallace, who was known for his socialist leanings. FDR confiscated gold in 1934, sanctioned by a clause in the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1934, when 90 percent of Americans lived on farms.

The man behind Wallace is Harold L. Ickes, Secretary of the Interior and director of the Public Works Administration. As head of the PWA, Ickes had a lot of say on what and where public works projects were built. The biggest of course was the Tennessee Valley Authority. Ickes was well-known for backing many other socialist endeavors. Ickes was also the father of Harold M. Ickes, a key player in the Clinton administration.

The other man behind Wallace is Donald Richberg, who was called “assistant president” in the FDR administration. Both he and Ickes came through Chicago politics and were leaders of the Progressive movement there. Both Ickes and Richberg were key players in pushing the National Industrial Recovery Act which imposed fascist codes of conduct on American industry which dictated how key industries in America were to be run. The National Recovery Administration was ultimately struck down by the Supreme Court in 1935, which decision led to FDR’s effort to “pack” the Supreme Court with more cooperative justices.

The note on the side of the cart reads, “Young Pinkies from Colombia and Harvard.” The law school graduates of Harvard, Columbia, and Yale took full advantage of the opportunity to enact a left-wing agenda. These highly credentialed and arrogant intellectoids spearheaded FDR’s relentless attacks against an independent U.S. Supreme Court and business community.

Metal Storm is both the name of a research and development company and an electronically initiated superposed load weapons technology. A Metal Storm firearm electronically fires bullets stacked, like roman candles in one or more barrels. Variations of the firearm range from a hand held pistol to a large box containing thousands of stacked rounds that can be fired in patterns.

The main advantage of Metal Storm is that the only moving part of the system is the bullet itself, which means there is no jamming. The rounds can be fired more accurately and in a more precise sequence than in a normal gun, i.e., a “spear” of five or six bullets can be fired toward an enemy causing maximum damage.

The technology has also been applied to a grenade launcher.
