The fact that America had ANY role in the Holocaust is sickening. But, when you consider that millions of Jews could have been rescued if the United States had given them shelter…
To my mind, there can be no greater argument for a coming judgment upon America than this fact. And, I document the progress of that judgment in my other website, OmegaShock.com.
The bitter irony is that America herself is writing the final chapter of her headlong rush into the abyss. Greed, corruption, mismanagement and utter foolishness has crowded the headlines of our newspapers, so it shouldn’t be news to anyone that America’s fall is a forgone conclusion.
And, all that America needed to do was hold true to her origins. America’s founders would never have closed her doors to millions of Jews desperately seeking a safe haven – just as America’s founders would never have countenanced the incredible blunders of the recent past.
Like all fools, the US is about to reap a fool’s reward.

The acquiescence of the United States in the murder of the Jews
David Turner, JPost.com
“I left him [President Roosevelt] with the satisfactory thought that he was wholeheartedly in support of the [discriminatory visa policy],” Assistant Secretary of State Breckinridge Long, 3 October, 1940
Introduction: I can think of no more damning condemnation of American antisemitism become state policy than a document, and the situation that inspired it, produced within the American government itself. The title alone expresses a degree of outrage that, explicit as it was, hardly touches the result of decades of antisemitism expressed in discriminatory congressional immigrant legislation and the Roosevelt Administration’s indifference and passive participation in the murder of Europe’s Jews. The document’s title is Report to the Secretary on the Acquiescence of This Government in the Murder of the Jews.
“In the spring of 1943
, at the height of the Holocaust, [Josiah] DuBois was working on the staff of the Treasury Department’s Foreign Funds Control Division. American Jewish organizations seeking to ransom Jews in Europe asked the Roosevelt administration for a license to send the funds [private donations] into Axis-controlled territory, which was normally prohibited by law because of the war. DuBois and his colleagues at Treasury approved the request, but the State Department delayed it for many months… Frustrated by these delays, DuBois began his search for the source…”
What Treasury-3 uncovered was a systematic policy run out of Roosevelt’s State Department with the president’s approval to discriminate against Jewish refugees fleeing Germany pre-war, facing death in the Holocaust, and continuing even after the war.
In an entry from Breckinridge Long, the Assistant Secretary of State recalls that that President Roosevelt supports his policy of encouraging consulates to “postpone and postpone and postpone” the granting of visas. Regarding their meeting of 3 October, 1940 the Undersecretary’s diary entry reads,
“So when I saw him this morning
the whole subject of immigration, visas, safety of the United States, procedures to be followed; and all that sort of thing was on the table. I found that he was 100% in accord with my ideas…The President expressed himself as in entire accord with the policy
[my emphasis]… I left him with the satisfactory thought that he was wholeheartedly in support of the policy…”
Nor was administration anti-Jewish policy limited to withholding visas from the condemned. State also controlled the flow of information from overseas consulates to persons engaged in relief efforts, and to the press.
During a meeting at the US consulate in Bern, Switzerland Gerhardt Riegner, Secretary of the World Jewish Congress asked that a message regarding Nazi plans to exterminate Europe’s Jews be forwarded to the US and Allied governments, and to Rabbi Wise in New York. Under the classification “STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL” the report was sent to only one recipient, Cordell Hull, Roosevelt’s Secretary of State. Dated 11 August, 1942 it reads:
“Informer reported to have close connections with highest German authorities who has previously generally reliable reports says that in Fuehrer’s headquarters plan under consideration to exterminate at one blow this fall three and half to four millions Jews following deportation from countries occupied, controlled by Germany and concentration in east. Method execution undecided but prussic acid has been considered…”
Exactly six months later and two months before the Bermuda Conference, on 19 February, 1943 Hull sought to control the flow of information relating to extermination campaign from Europe “to private persons in the United States.” The principal American recipient of the reports was Roosevelt’s “close friend and confidant,” Rabbi Wise:
“In the future we would suggest that you do not accept reports submitted to you to be transmitted to private persons in the United States… Such private messages circumvent neutral countries’ censorship and it is felt that by sending them we risk the possibility that steps would necessarily be taken by the neutral countries to curtail or forbid our means of communication for confidential official matter [!].
